Critics: You don’t really think you can hear God speak, right?

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear [them] not, because ye are not of God

Making things manifest or visible 

  • The number 21 is in the Bible 7 times
  • 21 is 7 times 3 and typically when you see biblical examples of the number 21 it has to do with Light being made manifest. 
  • 3×7=21 – When the Spirit (7) has perfectly completed (3) His work, everything is seen for what it really is.

Ephesians 5:13

But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.


  • 21 represents what the light of truth brings out into the open, whether good or bad. EXPOSURE
  • It especially seems to be connected with manifest darkness and revealing it for what it really is. 
  • There are 21 hidden sins brought out into the open for the last days. (2 Timothy 3:2-5)

The books of 1 Kings and 2 Kings make a total of 21 references to the sins of Jeroboam (the first king of the Northern Tribes of Israel after their split with Judah). These references were used to show how Israel continued to disobey God even though he gave them plenty of time to repent.

There are 21 ways Israel rebelled against Egypt  and 21 ways Israel rebelled against God in the wilderness

The 2021st verse in the Bible:

Exodus 18:21 

Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

  • Out of 27 New Testament books, 21 are Epistles.
  • The book of Hebrews contains materials from twenty-one Old Testament books. We are to be living epistles in 2021.
  • The names James (the great) and James (the less) also show up 21 times in the New Testament.

The word “Frankincense” occurs 21 times in Scripture, as well as the phrase ‘the Father.’ 

Intimacy, prayer and the secret place with the father.  

7+7+7 =21   7X3 =21

Manifest presence

Exodus 20:21

So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was. 

We must press into His Manifest presence this year 

John 20:21

So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”

Acts 20:21

Testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
