Shifting From Sinai to Paran

(15th Dec 2022)

This morning, I want to share with you some understanding that was given me about the

Hebrew year that we have entered into. To do so, I first want to lay a foundation of

something that the Lord shared with me a couple of months back. He first took me to

the making of the silver trumpets. In Number 10, two silver trumpets were made, and

then instructions were given as to when they were to be used. They were to be used for

breaking camp, for going to war, as well as calling leaders together to hear from Moses.

When one trumpet was blown once, the leaders came together. When the trumpets

were blown twice, they were to move out the camp and obviously the camp of Judah

went first.

Num 10:2 Make two trumpets of silver; of hammered or turned work you shall make

them, that you may use them to call the congregation and for breaking camp. Num

10:3 When they both are blown, all the congregation shall assemble before you at the

door of the Tent of Meeting. Num 10:4 And if one blast on a single trumpet is blown,

then the princes or leaders, heads of the tribes of Israel, shall gather themselves to

you. Num 10:5 When you blow an alarm, the camps on the east side [of the tabernacle]

shall set out. Num 10:6 When you blow an alarm the second time, then the camps on

the south side shall set out. An alarm shall be blown whenever they are to set out on

their journeys. Num 10:7 When the congregation is to be assembled, you shall blow

[the trumpets in short, sharp tones], but not the blast of an alarm... . Num 10:9 When

you go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then blow an alarm

with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the Lord your God, and you

shall be saved from your enemies.

So, we know that Judah is God's dwelling place, God's habitation. I've spoken of that

before in another podcast ‘Judah Goes First’ last year. To recap, the camp of Judah

represents the forerunner company; the tip of the spear, so to speak, as they move out

first. And what is important to note is that the silver trumpets had to be made. The two

silver trumpets represent two groups of people that have reached a certain level of

purity. The Word of God has been purified seven times within their earthen vessel.

These saints are in a form of leadership position in the Body of Christ spiritually -

although they may not be publicly recognized by the institutional church as leaders.

They are used to release a sound in order to initiate MOVEMENT, either a gathering

together of those appointed authority in the Body or movement out from a place where

the tent pegs are put down to pulling up the tent pigs and moving and following the


Only once the silver trumpets had been made, was there significant movement in the

people of God in the wilderness. They camped in the wilderness of Sinai until the

second year of the coming out of Egypt. There's a very interesting verse. It's Numbers

10:11, and then also verse 12. It says this: On the 20th day of the second month, in the second year since leaving Egypt, the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle of the testimony, and the Israelites took their journey by stages out of the wilderness of Sinai, and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran’.

So, this was the first major movement that happened after the two silver trumpets were

made. I am sensing that the Lord is connecting that to the making of the two witness

companies that we find in the Book of Revelation - pure silver vessels are used to

release a sound that triggers movement in the Body of those who have come out of

Egypt and the things of Babylon and are set apart to the Lord in the wilderness. And so,

we see here that the people of God moved location from one wilderness to another

wilderness. They moved into different territory from the wilderness of Sinai to the

wilderness of Paran.

Verse 33 and 34 tells us tells us that it was a three-day-journey. So, they departed from

the Mountain of the Lord, (which was Mt. Sinai) three days journey, and the Ark of the

Lord went before them during the three day's journey to seek out a resting place for

them. So, the movement from the wilderness of Sinai into the wilderness of Paran was a

three day journey, and the Holy Spirit said to me that the Body of His set apart ones are
