Luke 1:26,28 KJV

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, [28] And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Her name Mary meant “Bitterness”. She was a virgin. This means she was totally inexperienced in the area of her assignment. She lived in Galilee. Galilee literally means “Circuit or Wheel” thus signifying unchanging and repeated experiences.

Going by her name “Bitterness”, it meant that her whole life had been one continuous cycle of bitter experiences. Yet in the SIXTH MONTH, God sent Angel Gabriel to her. Gabriel literally means “Man of God”. Angel means a messenger. 

Gabriel didn’t harp on her past experiences as represented by her name Mary or Bitterness. He announced a new name for her. He called her “Favoured”. In this 6th month, God has changed your bitter experiences to favoured and flavoured ones.

Six is the number of Man for he was created on the 6th day. God chose the 6th month to introduce the MAN Jesus into the BITTER experiences and life of Mary so that He could bring JOY TO THE WORLD. This was a fulfilment of what was foreshadowed at Marah when The Branch was broken off and cast into the Bitter Waters to heal them and make them drinkable. (Exodus 15:23-25)
Water signifies BIRTH. The classification of any living thing is determined by the quality of it’s birth. An animal cannot be born a goat and be classed among lions. Dead sinners cannot be born and be classed as Sons of A Living God.

Jesus (The Word)  entered into the birth waters of Mary’s womb. Don’t forget that the birth process of a child truly begins when the Mother’s water breaks. As soon as the water breaks, intense labour begins.
God was healing the bitter cycles of Man’s sinful condition as experienced in the bitterness of birthing spiritually dead children in Adam. As THE BRANCH, Christ was cast into the waters of Mary’s womb and having healed the birth process, He has made humans who previously represented “Bitterness” before God to become accepted in the Beloved as sweet sons. This means that God can NOW look at us In Christ and “drink” in the beauty of salvation which we presently exude. ALL THESE are products of Divine Favour.

In this 6th Month, may the realities of Calvary be fully manifested in your life in the name of Messiah Yeshua. May every cycle of bitter experiences be terminated into favour filled years for the rest of your life.

You are no longer under the bitterness of curses, In Christ, you are NOW Deeply Loved, Doubly Blessed and Highly Favoured.

Happy New Month Beloved.
