Cheshvan:30 days - October-November
Alphabet:NUN — symbolizes the Messiah
Tribe:Manasseh — to forget, to leap, up and away
Characteristics:The month of the Messiah: The number “8” signifies eternal revelation and new beginning. The flood began in Cheshvan, and ended the following year on Cheshvan. In Cheshvan, Noah brought his sacrifice to God and God swore never again to bring a flood. God revealed the sign of His covenant with the world—the rainbow. Cheshvan is the only month which has no holidays. Jews believe this month is “reserved” for the time of Messiah, who will inaugurate the third Temple in Cheshvan. This month is connected with the fragrance of myrrh so let your sense of smell come alive. This is a time for digesting what you have heard.
Constellation:Scorpio (the scorpion) — tread on serpents and scorpions
Color/Stone:Black/Black Onyx or Agate

Cheshvan is the eighth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar. The number “8” signifies eternal revelation and new beginning. Cheshvan is linked with the tribe of Manasseh.

Cheshvan is associated with the Hebrew letter NUN, which symbolizes the Messiah. So Cheshvan is called the month of Messiah.

This month is a time to allow the fragrance of God to begin to permeate your soulish nature. Many people with a Greek mindset think that God is dealing only with spiritual issues, and they do not make the connection of body, soul and spirit. God sanctifies us spirit, soul and body.

The Jews believe the soul responds in this month in unusual ways. This is a month to smell the awe of God and a month when the fragrance of the Holy Spirit begins to emanate so a move of Holy Spirit can begin.

This is a time to activate your ability to dissect and assimilate things. Begin moving in new revelation, and you will be digesting and assimilating God’s wisdom and truth.

This is the month that you must war with words. Words that are not spoken correctly go into the inward parts of your stomach. Lots of stomach problems are the result of receiving wrong words. You should yell from your inner being, “I am satisfied,” and push out anything in you that is dissatisfied.

The constellation associated with Cheshvan is Scorpio (the scorpion). The scorpion and snake are symbols of this month. We need to understand the snake of Eden. But God has given us authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, so this is a key month to stand in your authority.

Cheshvan is a month reserved for the anointing in which God pulls you aside to draw a new anointing out of you. This can be an easy month or a hard month because He must press the anointing out of you. Cry out for the anointing to get pressed out of you.
