The Number 8 is the Number of New Beginnings!
Eight is 7 plus 1. Hence it is the number specially associated with Resurrection and Regeneration, and the beginning of a new era or order. A new era and order has begun in your life in Jesus Name!
When the whole earth was covered with the flood, it was Noah “the eighth person” (2 Peter 2:5) who stepped out on to a new earth to commence a new order of things. “Eight souls” (1 Peter 3:20) passed through it with him to the new or regenerated world.
Therefore, I decree and declare; Every flood of affliction that covered your life last month, by reason of this 8th month, I welcome you into your New Season in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Circumcision was to be performed on the eighth day (Genesis 17:12), because it was the foreshadowing of the true circumcision of the heart, that which was to be “made without hands,” even “the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ” (Colossians 2:11). This is connected with the new creation. Everything that is not like God in your life is being put away now in the Name of Jesus!
The firstborn was to be given to God on the eighth day (Exodus 22:29-30). Whatever represents first in your life, I encourage you to dedicate it to God afresh in this season. First hours, first seed, etc and watch what God does in Jesus Name!
