Adar 2: Blessings for the Hebrew Month

Adar 2—The Thirteenth Hebrew Month of 5784March 11–April 8, 2024

Please note this is a leap year. In leap years, Adar becomes Adar 1, and is followed by Adar 2. Purim (March 24–25) is celebrated this month.


Speaking Truth in Your Heart


The blessings of Adar 2 are the same as Adar 1. The only major difference is that Purim is in Adar 2. Purim is a time of celebration because the Lord can and does overthrow what the enemy raises up against us.


In Adar 2 as well, we must continue to speak truth in the inner man. The truth that God is faithful and will always keep His word. That He will always be with us. That He is there for us in every trial and difficulty. We must continually speak these truths.


God told Israel, “The word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (Deut. 30:14). In the following verses, He told them how much He wanted to bless them and enrich them. All they had to do was love and obey.


I believe Deuteronomy 30:14, “The word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart,” is an incredible key for victory. Yes there are times when we get tired and faith seems weak. Those are the times we need to declare, “God loves me, and I love him. God wants to bless me. He is here for me.” Making those declarations causes faith and confidence to rise up.


1. Month of the tribe of Naphtali, which means “sweetness to me.” Deuteronomy 33:23 states, “Naphtali is abounding with favor of the Lord.” Think this truth in your heart, and speak it and watch it come to pass in your life.


Declare: I am abounding with the favor of the Lord.


2. Month of eloquent communication and expressions of joy and laughter. Genesis 49:21 states, “Naphtali is a deer let loose; he uses beautiful words.” The Holy Spirit will help us find words to fully express God’s goodness. This not only solidifies our faith, but also opens the eyes of others to the goodness of God.


Declare: The Holy Spirit continually gives me good things and words of grace to say.


3. Month of Pisces, the fishes. Find your supply in the “hidden” world (e.g., the coin in the fish’s mouth). Provision is more than just finances. It also has to do with identity. There is an identity for you in the invisible world and you must find it. The angels recognize it. So do the demonic forces, who want to hide it and keep you from entering into it. Fully embrace and step into that identity.


Declare: I embrace my identity as God’s warrior. God provides for me.


4. God has cycles to help us come into our identity. What we are in our spirit will be reflected physically. Some of God’s tools to help us enter our identity include celebration, expressing our thankfulness, and family. The more I find my place in His family, the more my true identity emerges. It’s also why God wants to restore our natural families.


Declare: The more I celebrate, the more I enter into my true identity.


5. The month of the letter kaf (כ), which looks like a mask. It’s a time to remove any masquerade and enter into laughter; enter into the true joy of who you are. We need to remove any mask and be ourselves. Rejoicing is one of the most important tools for “mask removal.”


Declare: The more I rejoice, the more “masks” fall off.


6. A month to overturn anxiety over your supply. If you remove anxiety, then you can see your supply. But if you are ruled by anxiety, then you can miss the provision God has for you (see Phil. 4:6–7) [1]. Every time you feel anxiety rising, just remind yourself that God is your source and He is always faithful.


Declare: The moment I feel anxious about supply, I will immediately declare God is my provider.


7. The month of laughter, abounding joy, the witnessing of life entering into darkness, the advantage of light over darkness, the power of barrenness being broken. No matter what the darkness is, laugh and watch God permeate it. Light permeates darkness. When we see this, barrenness will break. Begin to laugh at fear (Ps. 34:4–6) [2]. Try it. Is some fearful thing oppressing you? Laugh at it.


Declare: The joy of the Lord is my strength. My laughter breaks barrenness and activates God’s promises to come to fulfillment.


8. The month of the spleen. Pull out any roots of depression and despair so that faith can break through into our thought processes.

Declare: Depression and despair have no place in me.


9. The month Moses was born. Your deliverance is forming. Take a look at whatever is holding you captive and declare God’s truth. Declare He is already forming deliverance and freedom for you, and that it is on the way (Exod. 2:10) [3].


Declare: Jesus has made me free. For any remaining bondage in my life, deliverance is already under way.


10. The feast of Purim. This feast originates with Esther. The devil inspired Haman to get an edict decreeing all the Jews in the Persian empire were to be slaughtered on Adar 13. God had placed Esther as wife of the emperor “for such a time as this” (4:14–16) [4]. The edict couldn’t be reversed, but because of her the Jews were permitted to defend themselves. Adar 13 (March 23–24), which would have been a day of annihilation, turned into a day of great victory over their enemies. The next day, Adar 15 (March 25), became the Feast of Purim. Daily celebrate that every plan of the enemy against you has already been overturned by Jesus. By celebrating, you enter into that victory.


Declare: I celebrate God’s goodness, and every edict against me is broken in Jesus’s name.


11. A month to develop your war strategy against the anti-Christ spirit. Don’t let the giants produce fear in you; guard against idolatry. Amalek will try to come. See Exodus 17:8–16. Note that Amalek attacked from the rear. Be sure you are not “holding back.” Also, when Moses’s hands were held up, Israel prevailed. For us, this means we can keep our “hands raised” by staying in faith and joy. This will keep us in the victory of the Lord.


Declare: Whenever I sense fear or worry come, I will raise my hands in faith and declare all things are in His hands.


12. A time for wrong decrees to be broken off of you. If wrong decrees are heeded to, they will encircle you and will cause others to say the same negative things about you. You need to break off the negative things decreed about you. I suggest praying and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal some wrong decrees, both self-made and “others-made.” Forgive those who uttered them, put the blood of Jesus on those wrong decrees, and then break them in His name.


Declare: I forgive those who have “cursed” me. I break off every wrong decree over my life.


13. A time for leadership to awaken. Next month they go to war.


Declare: I am a leader, and I am arising.
