We are pleased to announce that on April 28, 2016 the ministry will recognized its 15th anniversary!
To write fifteen in Hebrew, they wrote two Hebrew letters: yod-hey. These signify the hand (outworking) of the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, which gives us a new direction in life. Even as eight follows the perfect cycle of seven and is the number of new beginnings, so also 15 follows 14 (the second cycle of seven) and is the number of new direction.
Fifteen also pictures rest. The 15th day of the first Hebrew month (Nisan) is the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a day of rest for the children of Israel. The 15th day of the 7th Hebrew month begins the Feast of Tabernacles, also a day of rest. Psalm 15 speaks of entering God’s rest when we dwell on God’s holy hill. This is a new direction from the normal walk of the carnal man. Israel left Egypt on the morning of the 15th day of the first month. After being in bondage in Egypt for so long, this marked a new direction for the nation.
The 15th day of the 7th month is the beginning of the feast of Tabernacles, and that it was a Sabbath day of rest. However, a Sabbath is also a new direction insofar as the people were to cease their labor and do something different.
Likewise, the 15th time that Naomi is mentioned in Ruth 3:1, “Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?” If one continues to read the context, we find Naomi sending Ruth in a new direction in order to make herself noticed by Boaz. The idea of “rest” itself can certainly fit the number 15 at times, because going from “work” to “rest” is a new direction.
The 15th time that Noah is mentioned is in Gen. 7:7, “Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood.”
It was a new direction not only for Noah’s family, but for the whole earth as well.
The 15th time that Abram is mentioned is in Gen. 12:14, “And it came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.” Here we find Abram taking a new direction by going to Egypt.
The 15th time that Abraham is mentioned is in Gen. 18:16, “Then the men rose up from there, and looked down toward Sodom; and Abraham was walking with them to send them off.” After the two angels had appeared to Abraham, they were ready to go in a new direction to Sodom.
The 15th time that Isaac is mentioned is in Gen. 24:14, where Eliezar had gone to Haran to find a wife for Isaac. He arrived at a well and needed to know what direction to go, so he prayed that God’s choice of bride for Isaac would offer him and his camels a drink. Rebekah showed up and did this.
The 15th time Jacob is mentioned is in Gen. 27:21, “Then Isaac said to Jacob, Please come close, that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not.” Again, the idea of movement comes into the forefront, the new direction being toward Isaac.
The 15th time Israel’s name is mentioned is in Gen. 46:1, “So Israel set out with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices to the God of his father, Isaac.” Israel was going in a new direction—this time to Beersheba.
The 15th time Joseph is mentioned is in Gen. 37:28, where Joseph’s brothers lifted him out of the pit and sold him to the Ishmaelites, effectively sending him in a new direction to Egypt.
In Judges 19:10 Jerusalem is mentioned for the 15th time, “But the man was not willing to spend the night, so he arose and departed and came to a place opposite Jebus (that is, Jerusalem)...” The man departed and went in a new direction.
The 15th time David is mentioned is in 1 Sam. 17:23, 24, where Goliath was challenging the armies of Israel. “... and he [Goliath] spoke these same words; and David heard them.
When all the men of Israel saw the man, they fled from him and were greatly afraid.”
The Israelites fled in a new direction.
In the New Testament, the 15th time Jesus is mentioned is in Matt. 4:18-20, “And walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casing a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they immediately left the nets, and followed Him.”
These disciples were called into a new direction for their lives.”
In the book of Mark, the 15th time Jesus is mentioned is in Mark 3:7, “And Jesus withdrew to the sea with His disciples; and a great multitude from Galilee followed; and also from Judea.” It is obvious that Jesus went in a new direction when He “withdrew to the sea.”
The 15th time Paul is mentioned is in Acts 15:12, where Paul and Barnabas found a multitude of people who were ready to hear about the new direction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
And there are many more instances in the Bible that show the number 15 as going in a “new direction.”
