“Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur 5781: Back to Eden” Johnny Enlow, Nashville, TN
September 28th, 2020 was Israel’s highest holy day, Yom Kippur—or in English, the Day of Atonement. This follows the “10 Days of Awe” period of soul-searching and repentance that came after Rosh Hashanah (September 18th), which kicked off the Hebraic year 5781. The Day of Atonement is covered in Leviticus 16:29-30:
“…In the seventh month, on the tenth day…the priest shall make ATONEMENT for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean of all your sins before the Lord.”
As we begin the year 5781, we have entered a transcendental portion of our Gregorian calendar of the year 2020. It will be noted as the year of the turnaround. We have entered a year of bad things being reversed. The “floods” of our day have put us in a clear “as in the days of Noah” reality. As with the ark, it all ends with us resting on Mt. Ararat.
Ararat means “the curse reversed.” Right now the troubled waters still cover the earth. The “tops of the mountains” are under water. Behind the curtain of it all, it is World War 3, fought in an unconventional manner. All media and social media platforms have been bought and weaponized for this war. A concerted effort to win with lies and disinformation is playing out. Choices are being made by all and “the ark,” this time, is available for “whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord.”
God is having His way in the storm and its subsequent flood. Evil has abounded, but the “non-destruction” promise of the rainbow is over us. Our Rainbow God is rescuing us and setting us back on track—forward to our Promised Land…back to Eden.
Repeat Passover Lockdown
As you look at this feast from a spiritual application, it has been a repeat of Passover. Someone other than yourself atones for your sins. On Passover it is a spotless lamb, and on Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, it is a properly sanctified priest. Both are symbolic of Jesus who was the spotless Lamb and our perfect High Priest.
In a remarkable “coincidence” Israel just had their second lockdown, with the Prime Minister unprecedentedly asking the people not to go to Synagogue on their highest holy day. They had never celebrated Passover at home since the original Passover of the book of Exodus, and now for the repeat lesson of the Day of Atonement they have been unprecedentedly in lockdown again.
While there has clearly been a sinister COVID-19 agenda, which I have addressed multiple times, the Lord has coopted the agenda and is using it for His own purposes. Israel is having their second opportunity in under six months to process their need for a Lamb and High Priest—who has in fact already come as the person of Jesus. WE get to experience a repeat revelation of our Passover Deliverer. It is He who saves us from our oppressors WITHOUT (Pharaoh, Egypt, the devil) and WITHIN (our own sins). Jesus is the answer for both.
Amazingly, we had a pro-death Supreme Court Justice’s death announced on the eve of Rosh Hashanah and a new pro-life Supreme Court Justice announced right before Yom Kippur. It is almost as if these things were coordinated.
Justice Amy, Hurricane Sally, and the 7s
I know that Amy Coney Barrett has not yet been sworn in, but I am declaring that just a formality, though Hell itself rages against it.
So we have correlation with the biblical feasts and the High Holy Days of Israel, and we also have a correlation with the number 7—which is no coincidence either. 7 is the number of God, a sign of His involvement, and the number of completeness. It is associated with the 7 mountains, the 7 colors of the rainbow, and the 7 Spirits of God (Revelation 4:3, 5; 5:6; 17:9).
In virtually every false religion it is also a number of high significance. Even Vegas bows to the number sequence. Don’t be one of those who no longer values that which gets counterfeited. $100 bills are still legitimate even if they are the most counterfeited bill on the planet. We have to learn how to hold on to truth from God even when there are counterfeits. We lose so much inheritance because of this inane processing.
Every Christian seems to know to beware of “false prophets” and “lying signs and wonders.” Yet, I’ve noticed the so-called “experts” issuing these warnings seem unable to recognize any “real” in these areas—since the time of Jesus. As if Jesus needed to be a prophet and have signs and wonders but we don’t. They have caused much of the Body of Christ to throw out the real $100 bills in order to “protect” against false $100 bills. It is as foolish as it sounds.
Amy Coney Barrett, whose name means “Beloved,” is the eldest of 7 children and the mother of 7 children. Her present position is on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. That is 3 “7s” just there. As we read in Leviticus 16:29, the Day of Atonement was in the 7th month of the Hebraic calendar. That’s another 7.
This all happened right after a significant Hurricane named Sally made landfall at the very end of 5780 (September 16th). Sally was record breaking and the 7th hurricane of 2020 (no surprise there, huh?). Sally means “an action of bursting forth from a defensive position to attack the enemy.” In another dictionary it means “a military action, a sudden charge in the direction of the enemy, taking the opposing army by surprise.”
Sally made landfall on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Ivan at the exact same Alabama (“justice state”) location. Ivan is Russian/Slavic for John and means “God is gracious.” I gave a prophetic word back in 2004 regarding that storm, saying that it was a “John the Baptist” storm, announcing a coming move of Jesus.
I will let some of you finish connecting those final “revelation dots” I left unaddressed, as it might be too much for others of you. Believe me, though, this is a significant way God speaks, and those who treasure His communications in “rocks crying out” and “creation groaning and travailing” are able to access meaningful revelation that others are blind to. As Romans 1:20 says, “Invisible things of Him” can be perceived and apprehended through “the things that are made,” and not just by quoting a Scripture reference. A Scripture reference tells us so.
The Abraham Accords
The Israel-UAE peace treaty, under the name “the Abraham Accords,” has so stunned the world that the shock of it all has caused a cognitive dissonance, not yet allowing for full processing. As other Arab nations have followed suit, it has just added to the surreal nature of it all.
Typically, we have the knee-jerk “Christian” response that says, “Beware when they say, ‘Peace, Peace'”—which ALWAYS makes for being against peace. This is a foundation of the Kingdom of God (righteousness, PEACE and joy), as well as a key in Jesus’ first message where He said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers…” (Matthew 5:9). He would not be called the Prince of Peace were that not a core value and characteristic of who He is. Of course, peace treaties apart from Him will be challenged and even short-lived, but it is like marriage treaties—though they don’t really work without Him at the center, we still celebrate marriage treaties.
I love the wisdom in calling them “the Abraham Accords,” as it starts with what they have in common (Abraham) instead of what separates them. We could use this wisdom a little more in the Body of Christ as well, rather than trying to find the “heresy” behind every biblical position. That mindset is why we now exceed 40,000 denominations and why, despite being the largest majority in the world, our influence and impact has been so limited. Our fear of “ecumenism” is so irrational that we have a foundation for unfettered division that could never align with John 17 and Jesus’ most heartfelt desire while on Earth, “that they may be one…” (John 17:21).
Could all of you who believe that “promoting unity among Christians” is a good thing, please raise your hands? Since that is the actual definition of the word “ecumenical.” Thank you! I know, it’s not as sinister as you thought. Is there a counterfeit? Of course. But you don’t fear and throw out the “real” because of fear of the “false.”
Back to Eden?
YES! Forget your boxes of man-made eschatological classifications. I refuse to even detail my end-time views in the boxes of preterism, partial preterism, pre-millenialism, post-millennialism, etc. Every one of them is deficient in capturing where we are going, and we often become most dogmatic on that which is furthest out and subsequently less revealed to us. The boxes fail to capture the main aspects of the storyline, and thus distract from the storyline even being acknowledged. We can’t just grab a “position” that allows us to ignore Scriptures we don’t like or understand. I like Kingdom language with Kingdom objectives.
We are in a true day of repentance. The Greek word for repentance is METANOIA, also meaning, “to do an about-face.” 2020 is when the 180 degree turnaround begins. The Church has as much turning/repentance as anyone. Until Kingdom conversation, Kingdom structures, Kingdom power, and Kingdom community are exemplified, we have “180s” scheduled in our future.

We know how to check off the box for “eternal security” but almost nothing about present living. This is why there is, at times, just the slightest of differences in our reality and in the reality of those that walk without Him. We are the “eternally assured”—but presently befuddled and overwhelmed. We acknowledge the King but live in ignorance of His Kingdom. They come together and cannot be separated. His Kingdom on Earth is His way on Earth—His way in Government, Media, Family, Business, Arts, Education, as well as in Church. We are to go from “life insurance salesmen” to “how-to-live-life practitioners”…the King and His Kingdom revealed…Revival meets Reformation meets Harvest—all sourced by the Tree of Life which stands beckoning all in the middle of Eden. It’s back to the future.
God Will Jump Start It for 20 Years
This is now a prophetic segment. From 2020-2040, God will jump-start this turnaround almost unilaterally. By that I mean, He will ask for our cooperation with what He is doing but will not be dissuaded, even if we don’t. For 20 more years HE is choosing our president in the USA—as it is on behalf of the nations. After that, He will let us choose and trust we are on track enough to recognize His preference. But He is exerting His “Ruler of the Nations” rights to do some unilateral things. He has the double rights of Creator and of subsequent Redeemer.
We are headed into a Luke 14:23 day, where if those who are supposed to work with Him, won’t, He will recruit from “the highways and byways.” He has a “great supper” to share with all the nations BEFORE He returns, and entire denominations and movements could miss it without some 180s. “Repent” to His Kingdom priorities. Jesus is still saying, “Your Kingdom come!” He is still ignoring, “Please, take us away.”
They were a tiny microscopic minority up against the cruelest of antichrist regimes, and yet in John 17:15 He said, “I DO NOT PRAY THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD…” How much more now that He has died and sent the Holy Spirit as HELPER? Is this HELPER here to assist in an exit plan or a Kingdom reveal? Exit plans don’t require help. Here are some things I heard or saw.
Living to 120
Babies conceived in 5781 will live an average of 120 years. We will quit allowing the criminals in the 7 Mountains to kill us with harmful vaccines, toxic foods, unsafe drugs, contaminated water, induced economic crashes, and artificial wars. The many suppressed cures for diseases will soon be made public. The many suppressed technologies for improved life and well-being will also be shortly released. A surfeit of resources and wealth is about to come in waves as part of God’s 20 year jump-start.
Kingdom billionaires will be a common thing. ALL will be working an Isaiah 61 agenda of rebuilding ruined cities and nations. These will be “ministers of wealth” to be differentiated from just regular billionaires (those who still do not seek first the Kingdom of God). Communism in China will soon die and with it unleash waves of new realities across the globe. Like the sudden falling of the Iron Curtain this, too, will come suddenly.
Know that God has personally intervened in accelerating matters when, soon, a very great earthquake (between 8 and 9 or an 8.9 on the Richter scale) strikes Antarctica. It will deal with some things and be a sign as well. This will release a gripping fear upon those who have positioned themselves as His enemies on Earth. There is also yet another Supreme Court Justice seat that will soon open up.
These are all just present markers on the road back to Eden. Increased presence of God will be the greatest new reality.
18 and 81
I recently shared a word about the Kentucky Derby winner, Authentic, and on him being #18 and an 8-1 odds horse. This, too, speaks into the turnaround and curse-reversing season we are entering in this new 5781 year. That which is true, real, genuine, legitimate, original, and AUTHENTIC is about to be validated —and that which is false, fake, counterfeit, spurious, fictitious, and a SHAM is about to be exposed as such. This will happen at every level, and the Church is no exception.
Psalm 18 and Psalm 81 have application for right now. Psalm 18 is an amazing 50-verse chapter that was David’s exclamation on the day he was finally delivered from Saul. We are in such a day.
David begins the chapter with, “I will love You, O Lord…” and then calls Him, my Strength, my Rock, my Fortress, my Deliverer, my Shield and my Stronghold. In verse 4 he describes “floods of ungodliness” surrounding him and making him afraid. In verse 7, the earth shakes and the foundations of the mountains tremble. In verse 15, the Lord sends out “lightnings in abundance” against the enemy.
The lightning strike on the Washington Monument, as well as the strikes in the San Francisco Bay area, stand out—though there were many more, including the capitol building in Havana, Cuba during a recent prayer time there.
“…The foundations of the world were uncovered” (verse 15) is also happening with “the swamp,” and its attempted new world order is being revealed for all to recoil from. In verse 19, David speaks of being brought into “a broad place” and then being “rewarded” and “recompensed” in verse 20. On and on it goes, with amazing communications relevant for us today as we ride the “Authentic horse” at the “Churchill Downs.” (Photo via Pixabay)
Verse 29 says, “I can run through a troop” and “leap over a wall.” No more asking God to remove the troop and the wall…now you just “run through” the enemy and “leap over” the obstacle/wall. He is teaching us to be overcomers. The promises of Revelation are to those who overcome. They gain authority over nations.
In verse 34, David gains the ability to bend the impossible-to-bend bronze bow. In verse 37, he now pursues his enemies instead of running from them. In verse 39, he has been armed with “strength for the battle.” He now goes after the enemy and “beat[s] them fine as dust before the wind” (verse 42). He no longer sings, “All we are is dust in the wind,” but turns it around to singing of the enemy, “All HE is is dust in the wind.” Verses 43-45 are what He is doing with and for President Trump, and then it all ends with verse 50: “GREAT DELIVERANCE He gives…” to His royalty.
He then has us feast from Psalm 81. “Sing aloud to God our strength…” (verse 1). “Blow the trumpet…” (Rosh Hashanah [verse 3]). He speaks of being in the land of Egypt and being delivered. A key verse from Psalm 81 for us today is verse 10: “I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt; OPEN YOUR MOUTH WIDE, and I will fill it.” The Hebrew word for “fill it” is MALE and it means, “accomplish, confirm, furnish; fill with abundance.”
The Hebrew word for “mouth” is that word PEH we have highlighted all year, as it is associated with the number 80 that connected with 5780. Our mouth was shut, masked, and muzzled in 5780 as it is our main instrument of war and Kingdom advancement. Now He is ordering you to OPEN YOUR MOUTH—not with YOUR thoughts and words—and HE will “fill it with abundance.”
Authentic Secretariat Breaks Down Sham
If you look up the word “AUTHENTIC” (winner of 2020 Kentucky Derby), one of its antonyms is “SHAM.” Amazingly, this is the name of what could be the most famous racing horse ever—if it were not for a horse named Secretariat. SHAM was sired, appropriately enough, by a horse named PRETENSE and has the fastest time ever for the Kentucky Derby—except for Secretariat. Sham was Secretariat’s great rival, having beaten Secretariat early in the year (1973), and then greatly challenging the ultimate Triple Crown winner, Secretariat, in both the Preakness and the Kentucky Derby.
In the definitive Belmont Stakes, the whole world was at attention with this race, and there were only three other horses on the track—as it was clear no one else was going to challenge. As the race kicked off, both star horses got off well. Secretariat began with a small lead. About halfway through, Sham pulled ahead by a nose. Suddenly, when it looked like Sham might just be too much of a horse, Secretariat found another gear and began to take off. The jockeys on the other horses described looking at Sham and seeing its spirit break. They knew they now had a chance for SECOND place. Secretariat got faster and faster, ultimately winning the race by a whopping and unheard of 31 lengths. The crowd was roaring in delight. Finally, a Triple Crown winner.
Watch the race replay and you will be moved to tears in awe. Sham finished dead last, 45 lengths behind Secretariat—and never raced again.
This is playing out before us again today, and perhaps what was revealed in revelation through this natural event is now being fulfilled. The word “Secretariat” has much overlapping meaning with the Greek word “Ekklesia,” and it is to be noted. It is about governmental representation on Earth. The big enemy is the father of lies—or “SHAM.” “Sham” is present in fake news, plandemic, and a sinister disinformation campaign upon the nations. Only the rise of an “Authentic Secretariat” can break the spirit of “Sham.” Rise up, Ekklesia. Rise up in the Authentic.
The 31 length victory stood out to me again when remembering that the Kansas City Chiefs won the 2020 Super Bowl by scoring 31 points. I had connected that winning score with the Church rising up to be His virtuous, “Proverbs 31” woman, with all of its manifold applications. Bob Jones had prophesied years ago that the year the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl would be a momentous year for the breakout of the Church in true apostolic demonstration of the Kingdom of God. Who would have thought every kind of challenge would accompany that reality?
Much like the Secretariat vs. Sham race, at halftime it didn’t look so good. The score was 10-10 with the Chiefs looking just slightly outplayed. John 10:10 says, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” But then that is only half the verse. The second half of the verse says, “…I have come that they may have LIFE, and that they may have it more abundantly.” In the next verse, He describes Himself as “the good shepherd” who gives His life for the sheep. Our Good Shepherd is on the job and we can stay in hope because of that. We are headed back to Eden.
