INTERPRETATION CHESHVANCheshvan is the Eighth month on the monthly civil calendar. Eight is the number for New Beginnings and Eternal Revelation. It is the month when The Flood began and also ended a year later with Gods covenant sign of the rainbow being given. Cheshvan is the only month without a holiday, and so the Jews believe it is a time “reserved” for Messiah. It is associated with myrrh, which is an fragrant anointing oil of healing.
Cheshvan is associated with the tribe of Manasseh. Manesseh means to forget your painful past and leap away. Manasseh was the first son of Joseph and along with his brother Ephraim each received territory in the Promised land. Manesseh divided and half of the tribe settled on either side of the Jordan.
Cheshvan is associated with the Hebrew letter of “nun” which symbolizes the Messiah, our Deliverer. It visualizes a humbled man who rises as king.
Cheshvan is ening to assemble, warning of battle, and call to gather to hear the voice of the Lord associated with the constellation of Scorpio in that it is a month to overcome by the blood of Jesus and stomp on scorpions and serpents.
Cheshvan stone is the Onyx which comes in many colors. The yellow onyx is ribbed with black (darkness) being scattered by yellow(light) and strips of red (blood) and purple (king).
The visual symbol on the flag is a collage of Messiah symbols: cross, star and flowing oil. In the upper left corner in Hebrew is the word “overcome” with the interpretation beneath it.
