SORT BY Relevancy
Being located next to the Tribe of Judah (Yah be praised) caused the spirit of praise and worship to permeate this tribe. They were also located right in front of the Tabernacle entrance. All day they observed the Israelites coming with their sacrifices for the "God Who Dwelled Among Them".
Issachar is listed in Numbers 7, right after Judah, in the roll of tribes who brought offerings the day that Moses erected the Tabernacle in the wilderness. They are listed as being in attendance at David's coronation. When Hezekiah reinstituted the Passover, they were in attendance.
The characteristic that strikes me today is their FAITHFULNESS. Whatever God was doing, they were in on it.
A good quality to cultivate in our times.
For now, this is the concluding broadcast on the "Issachar Anointing".
A verse that has always made me hungry for the supernatural life is 1 Chronicles 12:32:
"And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, the heads of them were two hundred: and all their brethren were at their commandment."
Here it is from the Living version:
"From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take."
Jesus spoke of discerning the signs of the times in Matthew 16:1-4 and Paul also spoke of this issue in Romans 13:11-12.
"Perilous times" will be characteristic of world conditions prior to the coming of Christ to Judge the world. As believers we must 'navigate wisely'. Ask God for the 'Issachar Anointing'......

In the Book of Deuteronomy, we find that when the children of Israel were ready to pass over the Jordan into the Promised Land, that Moses instructed two groups to stand on the two mountains located on either side of the valley they were to pass through.
One was Mt. Gerazim from which the blessings for obedience were to be pronounced.
One was Mt. Ebal from which the cursings for disobedience were to be pronounced.
The men of Issachar were located on Mt. Gerazim, pronouncers of the blessing.
Jesus came into the world not to condemn the world, but to save it. To announce the 'acceptable year of the Lord'.
The men of Issachar were anointed to bless, as well as to give wise counsel.
Thought provoking, isn't it?
Every word of God has significance. Every name. Every number.
When the children of Israel left Egypt and camped in the wilderness, God said to Moses: "Tell the children of Israel to build me a tabernacle that I might dwell among them."
God also gave instructions about how the 12 tribes were to encamp around this Tabernacle. I find it significant that those with the "Issachar Anointing" camped next to Judah on the East side - where the entrance door was.
The tribe of Issachar was considered numbered with the 'Camp of Judah', Numbers 2:9.
They followed Judah when the camp went on the march.
Jesus is from the Tribe of Judah.
Sons of Issachar stay close to the Son of Judah, for He is their Wisdom.
Can't you sense the honey flowing from this wonderful rock of truth?
