The Holy Spirit said to me “The YEAR of the Shield”, this is just a Heads UP! I’m writing this out and God is unpacking so much. This is a Word for the Year 5778. New Beginnings for all are COMING.
I’m studying this out because I was reading about the Shield of Faith as the Lord spoke this to me. This is what excited me. In scripture this Word Shield is connected with Door. I truly perceive Holy Spirit was saying a Gift of Faith is coming to the Body of Christ through a Mega Door of opportunity.
Feb 24, 2017 as I was writing the Lord said to me:
the Lord would say… “THIS DOOR IS OPEN AND IM CALLING YOU TO WALK THROUGH BY WAY OF YOUR BREAKTHROUGH!”
this Word ‘SHIELD” used only once in scripture. This year FAITH is going to ARISE like never before in the Body of Christ.
Phonetic Spelling: (thoo-reh-os’)
Short Definition: a large shield
Definition: the heavy oblong Roman shield.
2375 thyreós – properly, a gate or door (or “door-shaped”); used of the large, oblong ancient Roman shield (which looked like a full door), large enough to provide full protection from attack (used only in Eph 6:16).
2375 /thyreós (“full-body shield”) refers to God’s inworking of faith – i.e. “the shield (2375 /thyreós) of faith” which protects the whole believer, covering their whole person in spiritual warfare. See 4102 (pistis).
The Lord Himself is our shield (Ps 7:10,13; Zech 12:8), providing protection by inbirthing His spoken-word (4487 /rhḗma) of faith in the believer. This always extinguishes (takes the fire out of) the missals of the enemy (cf. Ro 10:17, Gk text).
