Shavuot 2019: An Open Heaven of Glory, Favor, Blessing, & Breakthrough
Excerpts from “Ancient Portals of Heaven: Glory, Favor & Blessings” by David Herzog
This weekend the Biblical feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) begins at sundown on Saturday, June 8th and ends at sundown on Monday June 10th.
A few weeks ago we covered the significance of Shavuot – Click HERE. According to (Acts Chapter 2) the promise of the Holy Spirit occurred on Shavuot, fulfilling Jeremiah’s prophecy that one day God’s law would be written on our hearts (Jeremiah 31:33).
Shavuot is the 4th Biblical feast and the final spring feast. God calls the Biblical Feast “His appointed times” (Leviticus 23:2), In other words, the feast days are God’s “set appointments” to commune with His people. Thus, I believe the Biblical feasts, are times of an open heaven. As Shavuot approaches, let us embrace this open heaven, and receive new wine, new wine skins, and fresh revelations from heaven, as we step into our destinies.
Shavuot: A Time For Breakthrough
2 Samuel 5:20:
“Adonai has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters!”
God wants us to encounter blessings and breakthroughs even more than we want to receive them.
I believe that Shavuot is an open heaven of outpouring and breakthrough. God desires us to receive salvation and restoration for our families, finances, and health.
Throughout the Bible there were particular events when the portals of heaven were open. In (John Chapter 5), at a particular time, an angel would stir the waters at the pool in Bethesda. Those who entered-in experienced the power of a breakthrough in healing.
Prophetically, I believe that the waters are being stirred during this season of Shavuot 2019. Our appointed time of breakthrough is NOW! In (Luke 24:49) Yeshua told His disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the manifestation of that which had been promised.
(Acts Chapter 2) records that on Shavuot Yeshua’s followers were assembled together, on one-accord, praying in an upper-room, like the Master had instructed. Then suddenly there came a sound like a mighty rushing wind. The heavens opened and the power of God was released! The Holy Spirit fell like fire! The 120 followers who were assembled were all consumed with the manifest presence of God and they spoke in other tongues.
Beloveds, as we approach Shavuot, let’s “press-in” in prayer for your breakthroughs, healing, miracles, promises, and the manifestation of all that God has ordained for us as sons and daughters of destiny.
An Open Heaven
When we embrace God’s “appointed-times,” we align ourselves so that things on earth may be aligned with heaven (Matthew 6:10). On Shavuot, God opened the heavens and ushered in an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I believe that God will show up in extraordinary power in this season.
“Thus says the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls…”
“I believe that embracing the Biblical feasts and living a Torah observant life leads one down the ancient paths that ushers us into the fullness of life in the Spirit of God. Great men of old like Enoch, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Peter, and Paul walked in these ancient paths. What did these great Hebrews know then that we are missing in our God encounters today?
What revelation of the ancient paths did they have that allowed them such communion with God that they could call down fire from heaven, command rain or shut up the sky, negotiate with God concerning nations, command the sun to stand still, experience open visions, make kings and kingdoms tremble at the word of the Lord, be taken up to Heaven without ever tasting death, ignite the fire of evangelism with just twelve men throughout the world…. and much, much more?”
The Church was cut off from their Jewish roots in A.D. 325 during the Council of Nicaea, and ever since that time the power and visitation of God has been diminished compared to what it was in the early church. As we reconnect to the Jewish roots of the Gospel, we will draw from the rich soil of God’s power.
Yeshua promised that we would do “greater works” for the kingdom of God (John 14:12). Life in the kingdom of God is naturally supernatural.
I believe that we do not experience the fullness of the kingdom because we do not expect it. As believers in the western world, we rely heavily on our natural abilities.
Miracles are rare and supernatural experiences often raise a quizzical brow. However, many believers in third world countries expect to experience signs, wonders, and miracles as a part of daily living because of their expectation and dependence on God.
Are you desperate to see the manifest presence of God? My soul longs for God in a dry and thirsty land. I am desperate to see the glory of God manifest in my life, in my family, in my community, and in this nation.
Are you desperate for God’s glory to be revealed today? God hears our cry for the kingdom of heaven to breakthrough in our circumstances. Get ready for God to do a NEW THING! We are in a season of SUDDENLY. During this season of Shavuot, God will breakthrough like the breakthrough of many waters.
I believe that as we step into this new season we are about to see a demonstration of the Spirit in signs, wonders, and miracles. The fresh wind of heaven is blowing. Let us expect to experience the winds of heaven at our back as we move into new realms of miracles, glory, expectation, manifestation, calling, destiny, and purpose.
“Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.

Shavuot Prayer: New Wine
The principle of the new is that the old must give way for the new. Ask the LORD to break you out of the old wine skin structure. As it takes the LORD to do new things with a new wine skin structure, ask the:
- LORD at this gate of time, I ask You to shift me from a religious Pharisee spirit, a spirit of legalism, cultural, tribal, racial, and ideological mindsets, mentality, and thinking that has made me an old wine structure and renew my thinking process, (Romans 12:1-2).
- LORD, I ask You to remove rigidness and all the characteristics of the old wine skin structure in me.
- LORD, I ask You to remove every spiritual rubbish, disorder, crookedness, and blemishes in me and carryout profound internal/external cleansing in me. (2 Chronicles 29:3-5)
- LORD, I ask You to restructure, reform, re-calibrate, and realign me into divine order as a new wine skin structure that will contain the new glory and close every spiritual leakage in my life.
- LORD, I ask You to make me a pillar in Your House and Kingdom, and expand my spiritual influence and authority. (Revelation 3:12)
- I thank you God for planting me in the right spiritual environment and giving me an excellent spirit.
- Father, please forgive me for wrong inner attitudes: Anger, bitterness; an unforgiving spirit; desire for revenge, and impurity.
- Lord make me your preferred candidate for promotion, blessings, and testimonies in the name of Yeshua.
- Thou power for divine excellence fall upon me in the name of Yeshua.
- Power creating a visionless life for my destiny, be arrested in the name of Yeshua.
- I receive the anointing for supernatural lifting in the name of Yeshua.
- Every pollution preventing excellence in my life be flushed out.
In the MIGHTY name of Yeshua
