I did not just hear Holy Spirit say this once, but several times this past week. He was warning about the Blood of Jesus and keeping our faith strong in the Blood of Jesus. Rev 12:11 speaks of the last of the Last Days and into the Tribulation, “And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].” (AMPC)

The Blood of Jesus is Eternal (Lamb slain from the foundation of the world) and the power flows by the Eternal Spirit. (Hebrews 9:14) The Blood of Jesus, that is now on the heavenly Mercy Seat, is eternal and never will lose its power. HOWEVER, we can lose our faith in the Blood by neglect and wrong teaching. Faith comes by hearing and hearing and hearing the Word of God!! But the problem with many churches is that they do not want to offend anyone so they have taken anything about the Blood of Jesus out of their hymnals, teaching, preaching, praying or singing. Therefore, those churches are void of power, no miracles, signs and wonders. The have totally forgotten that the Spirit follows the Blood!!

Hebrews 10:29, “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” (NKJV) The King James Version states ‘unholy thing‘ instead of ‘common’. I think the AMPC states it the best, “How much worse (sterner and heavier) punishment do you suppose he will be judged to deserve who has spurned and [thus] trampled underfoot the Son of God, and who has considered the covenant blood by which he was consecrated common and unhallowed, thus profaning it and insulting and outraging the [Holy] Spirit [Who imparts] grace (the unmerited favor and blessing of God)?”

Wow! The Greek word enybrizō means ‘insult’ is only used 1 time in the Bible and expresses how the Trinity feels about the Blood of Jesus! How do you insult, proface and outrage Holy Spirit? By treating the Blood of Jesus as ‘common’, ‘unholy’. The Greek word for common here is koinos and means ‘common i.e. ordinary, belonging to generality; by the Jews, unhallowed, profane, Levitically unclean’.

Acts 10:15, “And a voice spoke to him a second time, ‘What God has cleansed you must not call common.’” (Koino’o, defiled) We must keep the communion with the Body and Blood of Jesus as fresh and personal. Fellowship with Him, thank Him for what He has done for you with His death, burial and resurrection.

We are to treat the WORD OF GOD as FRESH BREAD every day, keeping it full of power. When you treat communion as ordinary, common, unholy with tradition only (only to take it in church once a month), power is lost. (read Mark 7:6-16 VOICE Translation) Anything that you do as only tradition is void of power.

In the Hebrew writing, to be defiled is to be made common, stained, made dirty and wounded. In the natural if you are wounded and your get dirt on it, your wound becomes infected. You may get victory in meetings, but when you get home you crash and burn. This is why communion needs to be part of our devotional time. DAILY!

I was on several prayer calls this morning and they all included communion time. You don’t need a priest or minister to serve you. Beni Johnson has an amazing book called “The Power of Communion”, accessing miracles through the Body and Blood of Jesus. She states that she takes communion several times a day. I highly recommend that book. I highly recommend so many Blood of Jesus books, they keep the FAITH for the BLOOD OF JESUS FRESH!!!

Tu B’Shevat is a Hebrew word that means the 15th day of the month of Shevat. This year that falls on January 28, 2021. What a beautiful full Moon!! This on the Hebrew calendar is the New Year of the Trees.  This day marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. Leviticus 19:23-25 lay out instructions of how to keep the tree uncircumcised (too young to bear fruit) for the first 3 years, fruit given to priests in the 4th year and on the 5th year and then they can harvest the fruit.

2018 and 2019 saw SUPER BLOOD MOONS on Tu B’Shevat, both years! The astronomers call the ‘triple’ super moons a “Grand Coincidence”, but they were not ever looking at the spiritual significance. This was like a ‘giant stop sign in the heavens’, a sign to the Church to understand the times we are living in right now.

2021 will see FOUR Super-moons in a row!!! March 28 (Nisan 15 – PASSOVER), April 27 (Iyar 15 -2ND PASSOVER), May 26 (Sivan 15) and June 24 (Tammuz 14). None of them fit into the spotlight of New Year of the Trees. But since there are 4 super-moons in a row, this is a “GRAND Grand Coincidence”. What is the Hebrew word for ‘coincidence’? There is none. In Jewish thinking, everything means something.

Since the Super Blue Blood Moon of 2018, I have seen more signs in the heavens. Keep looking up – God has signs in the heavens for the Last Days that we are living in right now!

This is the last Tu B’Shevat before the Shemittah Year begins September 7, 2021 and ends September 26, 2022. This is the Sabbatical Rest for the Land and there will be no working of the ground that entire year. The word Shemittah means “release”.

Leviticus 25:1-7 give instruction for this Sabbath Rest for the land. Verse 2 reads, ” “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the LORD.”

The Shemittah of 2008 stands out in history. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has taught much on the Mystery of the Shemittah**. One statement stands out to me, “Sign of the Shemittah means the nation is under judgment”. That year there was a financial implosion on Elul 29, the date marking the beginning of the Shemittah year. That day in 2008 marks the worst stock market loss in history, a plunge of 777.67.

I will be writing more about the Shemittah later as God gives me revelation. But I am convinced that 2021 will mirror 2008 in many ways!! Both were marked with National Judgment.

**(2017) New chapters added! The best-selling author of The Harbinger presents a fascinating look at the Sabbath year mandated by the Torah—and its prophetic significance for us today. Learn what the “pattern of sevens” reveals about world events including the Great Depression; the attacks on September 11, 2001; the stock market crash of 2015; and more.

First of all, there is so much confusion about this star but I am thankful that people are focusing on the Birth of Jesus Christ at this time of year instead of Santa and COVID19. Confusing debates such as : was Saturn and Jupiter what the Magi saw or was it Jupiter and Venus; was this conjunction 400 or 800 years ago; does Saturn have a Satanic connection? That last question I know for sure – God is the Creator of all things and He named and numbered all the stars. (Ps 147:4) Like I said, much confusion that we do not need right now.

But I am going to state from a Biblical Astronomy about tonight’s siting of Jupiter and Saturn. Tonight I took a photo from my SkyView App on my iphone so let’s take a look at what we see.

JUPITER – in this photo we see Jupiter, but cannot see Saturn. But you can see Saturn’s rings. Saturn is so close to Jupiter that they look like one star. I am in Orlando and we can see it clearly in the sky with all the lights of the area blinding out the other stars. Jupiter is the KING PLANET and has represented King David and Israel. God named this planet TZEKEK which means ‘righteousness‘. It is the largest of all the original 7 planets at Creation (Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, Sun, Moon) that lined up on the 4th day of Creation. Josephus records in the Antiquities of the Jews 3.7.7, “these seven represent the Menorah (candlestick) of the Temple.”

SATURN – God named this planet Shabbtai and it means ‘rest’, such as the Sabbath Rest. This is one of the most brilliant and beautiful planets. Saturn is surrounded by over 1000 rings made of dust and ice. Saturn is total gas and continues to hold the beautiful shape and form as when God created this magnificent planet. Saturn has at least 52 moons.

Jupiter and Saturn are the slowest moving of all the planets and are both made of brilliant gas. They are the 2 largest of the planets.

CAPRICORN means “atonement”. This shows in the Heavenly Bible (Ps 19:1-6) and all the named stars in the Constellation a part of the Story of Jesus. This shows the Church and our benefits purchased at a great price. Capricorn has been called “the Sea Goat”. It appears to be dying with its head bowed down, the right leg folded under the body and seems unable to rise with the left. The other part of his body is like a fish full of life. In the Goat we have the Atoning Sacrifice (scapegoat). In the Fish we have the people for whom the atonement was made. In Egyptian this constellation is called ‘Hu-penius’, which means ‘the place of the sacrifice’. The Hebrew and Arabic name for the sign is ‘Gedi’, the ‘kid cut off’ or ‘cut off’. Capricornus is merely the Latin name of the sign and means ‘goat’.

In the Old Testament, goats were often used for the sacrifice. Leviticus 10:16 reads, “Then Moses made careful inquiry about the goat of the sin offering, and there it was-burned up.” Leviticus 9:3 reads, “And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, ‘take a kid of the goats as a sin offering.”

On the Day of Atonement there were two goats. The High Priest would cast lots over the two goats to determine which would be the sacrifice, ‘for the Lord’. The scapegoat was called ‘azazel’ in Hebrew. Sins were carried away with the scapegoat and when the goat was pushed over the cliff and died, the scarlet cord that was tied unto the door of the Temple would turn white. (Isaiah 1:18)

The tail of the goat is of a fish. A living fish proceeds from a dead goat. Fish relates to Born Again Christians, New Birth. The Greek symbols of “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior” is ichtus, and means ‘fish’. This symbol was used in the early days of Christianity to let others know you are a believer in Jesus.

This night is a very high occult night around the world because of the Winter Solstice and they will see this night different than we see it. We see Jesus the way God wanted us to see in the Biblical astronomy.

Keep looking up – your redemption is nigh. Luke 21:28

Let us look up and be thankful the Jesus died for all of us and that the world is looking up the heavens, wondering if there is a God to save them. I love how the Passion Translation brings out the brilliant way God speaks through us from the heavenlies, Psalm 19:1-4:

(1) “God’s splendor is a tale that is told;
his testament is written in the stars.
Space itself speaks his story every day
through the marvels of the heavens.
His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky,
showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship.
(2) Each day gushes out its message to the next,
night with night whispering its knowledge to all.
(3) Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard,
(4) Yet all the world can see its story.
Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know.

October 2020 we will have two full moons. The first was October 1st and the 2nd will be October 31. The second full moon in a month is also called a “Blue Moon”. The phrase ‘once in a blue moon’ means it doesn’t happen very often. In 2020 there is a total of 13 full moons and 2 Super Moons (March 9 and April 7). The October 31st ‘blue moon’ will not be a super moon.

This year the last day of Daylight Saving Time will end. November 1st our clocks ‘fall back’ and we gain an extra hour of sleep.

This full moon is called ‘Hunter’s Moon’ by the Northern Indian Tribes because this will be enough light to hunt at night and prepare for the long winter. October 1st full moon was referred to as ‘Harvest Moon.’

This is also Halloween. The last time there was a full moon in every time zone on Halloween was 1944, so this does not happen very often. We are in a time in history where there is much witchcraft and this will increase their activity since they also believe in Horoscope. Since President Trump has come into office there has been organized witchcraft on this date to take him out of office. They do not understand that they are fighting against God and it will not work!

While we watch the ‘Blue Moon’ on the evening of October 31st, Israel will be on Cheshvan 14 on the Hebraic calendar. I like to look to what happened in history on that day. For that information I go to AISH.com/dijh. This is what they had for that day. “In 1917, the British government gave final approval for the Balfour Declaration, calling for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in historic Israel. The declaration took the form of a letter from Arthur Balfour, British Foreign Secretary, to Lord Rothschild, who had once been a member of the British Parliament. In 1922, the United States Congress formally endorsed the Balfour Declaration. In the ensuing decades, the British would slowly whittle away at their commitment — first lopping off 80 percent of the land east of the Jordan River to create the Kingdom of Transjordan (now Jordan), and then restricting Jewish immigration and rights to purchase land to the west of the Jordan River. The volatility of the situation ultimately forced the British to withdraw from the region in 1948.”

SpaceWeather.com has an very interesting video of the planet Mars in ‘retrograde’. I looked up the meaning of retrograde in Webster 1828 dictionary and the 2nd meaning is, ‘In astronomy, apparently moving backward and contrary to the succession of the signs, as a planet.

The video shows Mars being stationary, coming to a stop September 9, 2020, they going backwards, and closest to the planet Earth on October 6. Mars is then in opposition on October 13 and then again stops November 14 before it goes back on course for 2021. Very interesting indeed!

Graphic Artist Larry Koehn of SpaceWeather.com comments, “Basically, Earth is lapping Mars in a two-way race around the sun. Our planet is faster, so Mars seems to go backwards during the weeks of closest approach.” (italics and bold are mine)

Since I like to connect heavenly signs with Biblical Astronomy (not the witchcraft of astrology), I will bring out the meaning of these signs. Psalm 147:4 tells us, “He (God) counts the stars and calls them all by name.” Isaiah 40:26, “Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.”

Ma’adim, ‘the Red One’ is what the Roman’s renamed Mars after their Roman god of War. This is where the term ‘martial arts’ comes from. This is known as the ‘planet of war’ since historically when it is clearly seen, war breaks out on the Earth. During this present transition of Mars being so close to the earth, you can ‘eyeball’ (without telescope) this red wandering star/planet before dawn each morning looking South.

Mars’ pass-by near the earth in was written in Gulliver’s Travel by Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) as he described the 2 moons in Mars. This was discovered to be true in 1877 by a new telescope at the US Naval Observatory.

Pisces – The Fishes

What really interested me was the Constellation Mars chose to give a magnificent night sky viewing experience this Fall. PISCES. The sign of Pisces means ‘the fishes’, and describes the connection of the Church and Israel, the “One New Man”. (Eph 2:15)

God named this constellation Dagim, ‘the fishes’, which is closely connected with the multitudes, as in Genesis 48:16, when Jacob was blessing Manasseh and Ephraim. The number 2 in Scripture represents ‘multiplication’.

But the sign of Pisces before the Church began was always been interpreted as the nation of Israel. Why two fish? Maybe because while they were strangers here on this earth, Abraham knew there was a heavenly city, whose builder and maker is God. (Hebrews 11:10) Verse 14 of that Chapter in Hebrews said, ‘These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

The same for the Church, I Peter 2:11 (NLT) tells us, “Dear brothers and sisters, you are foreigners and aliens here.” We may live on this earth, but we are not of this earth! We are divinely tied to Heaven! Strangers are those without a home and pilgrims are those who are journeying home. Just like Father Abraham, we are looking forward to that heavenly city!

Abarbanel, a Jewish commentator, writing on Daniel, affirms that the Sign Pisces always refers to the people of Israel. He gives five reasons for this belief, and also affirms that a conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn always betokens a crisis in the affairs of Israel. Because such a conjunction took place in his day (about 1480 AD), he looked for the coming of Messiah. (Witness of the Stars, E.W. Bullinger, pg 96-97)

The two fish are tied by a cord which is called “al Risha”, in Arabic meaning ‘a common bond’. This is also called “The Band” and is a separate constellation. The ancient Egyptian name for this cord is U-or, which means “He cometh”. Aries, the Ram, is seen with his paws on this band, as though about to loosen the bands and set the captives free, and to fast bind their great oppressor!! Hosea 11:4, “I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love, and I was with them as those who take the yoke from their neck.”

The common bond that connects the Church and Israel is the making of ‘one new man’ but connecting the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. One is pointing to the North Polar star and the other is on the line of the ecliptic, the path of the Sun.

Tonight the night sky was amazing and I just had to take a picture with my iPhone SkyView app. Sagittarius was sitting on the Milky Way, with a brilliant waxing moon on his back side. The Moon was in front of Jupiter with Saturn behind them.

SagittariusThe Archer, ‘conquering and to conquer‘. The represents the triumph of the Coming One, Jesus Christ. The ‘half-man – half-horse’ represents His dual nature as Son of Man and Son of God.

Jupiter in Hebrew is Tzedek and means ‘righteousness‘. It is the King Planet and represents Israel.

Saturn in Hebrew is Shabbtai and represents ‘rest’, Shabbat. Saturn is surrounded by 1,000 rings of ice and dust and the planet itself is gas. It represents the beautiful rest our Creator gave us as a gift each week. The Jewish Shabbat, 7th day rest, began Friday night at sundown.

When I went to look at my calendar to see if there was anything special about this date, my calendar said, “Ashura”. I had no idea what that meant so I needed to research this day to see if it had any significance to this beautiful Sign in the Heavens.

This is a Islamic celebration that began this year at sundown August 28 to sundown August 29, 2020. On the Islamic calendar it always falls on the tenth day of the month of Muharram.

Ashura, also known as Yom Ashura, is the day of atonement and mourning for Muslims and marks the day that Moses and the Israelites were saved from Pharaoh by God creating a path in the seas. Britannica.com says this is the date that ‘commemorated as the day that Allah parted the Red Sea for Moses (Musa) and his followers to escape from the pharaoh.’

The Shi’a Muslims see the day as the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram and the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, at the battle of Karbala. Hence, this is a holy day of mourning for the Shi’a Muslims. One of the customs of the believers is ‘self-flagellation’, whipping themselves and shedding blood.

What I see in this day and this sign is protection for Israel. According to Britannica.com, Muharram was one of the four sacred months when fighting was not allowed. This is good in this hour when protests and violence are raging in the streets.

Not everything in the heavenly means something, but when I am out at night and Holy Spirit says “look up”, I know there is something new to learn. And I keep learning. I am a life-time student of the Word of God in the Heavens and in the Bible. (Psalm 19)

This morning in the shower Holy Spirit spoke one word, “Lebanon”. Tonight, at sundown, on the Hebraic Calendar begins the Fast Day of the 4th Month, Tammuz 17. This is the anniversary of the Golden Calf incident when Moses came off the mountain after 40 Days. This began a series of horrific incidents that would happen on this day throughout history.

On Tammuz 17 in the year 2006, Lebanon and Israel went to war after Hezbollah kidnapped 2 Israeli soldiers. My husband and I were in an annual World Ministry Fellowship Convocation in Dallas listening to Dr. Hilton Sutton teach on End Times. Someone came in and shouted, “We need to stop and pray for Israel. They just went to war with Lebanon.” That began was is now called the “2006 Lebanon War”.

Who won the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War? - Quora

Chuck Pierce prophesied January 29, 2006,watch Lebanon. I will bring conflict into Lebanon, because it is the boundary that I will deal with this year concerning My promised land of Israel. The warlike tribes of Lebanon will once again arise. But in the end, I will win this war, and the riches that have been withheld from My Kingdom plan will be released.” The prophet’s word came to pass within 6 months.

Because of the word this morning in the shower, I have dropped previous plans and now this afternoon I am getting updates on Lebanon. AlJazeera had many articles on Lebanon today, none were pretty. “Plotting our escape-Lebanon braces for a new emigration wave.” “Lebanon’s Economy – The political elite, the Central Bank and the banking sector are arguing over who has bankrupted the state.” CNN shared “Lebanon Crisis – dumpster diving, blackouts and suicide.” BBC News shared “Maids dumped outside Beirut Embassy”, they are now homeless because the embassy cannot afford to feed or pay them for their service. “Lebanon Protests as Currency Dives.”

News Lebanon shared today, “A Lebanese businessman who has been accused of financing Hezbollah has returned home – after three years in a United States jail. Kassim Tajideen had been sentenced to five years in prison but was released due to poor health, and the risk of contracting COVID-19 in prison.” He was financing Hezbollah in the US!!

Hezbollah, or so-called ‘The Party of God‘, is a Shia Islamic group of terrorists based in Lebanon is primarily funded by Iran. In an October 2018 report from Israel National News, “Security Minister reveals Lebanese terror group’s arsenal has grown to 150,000 missiles and rockets, says Iraq could join assault on Israel.” That was almost 2 years ago!!!

As I continue to watch and pray over what is happening, I am asking you to pray for the Lebanon Border during this 3-week Season of Dire Straits. Lebanon is right now a hot bed of hate and desperation.

2 Kings 20:19, “Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, The word of the Lord you have spoken is good. For he thought, Is it not good, if [all this evil is meant for the future and] peace and security shall be in my days?”

2 Timothy 3:1, “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. (2) People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,”

Baby Boomers are those (like me) who were born 1946 and 1964. After WWII there was a great boom in the baby-making business as soldiers came back from war and the economy and future looked much better for families.  This was a time of great productivity in everyone of the Seven Mountains of Culture (the areas of influence of global society).

  1. Media
  2. Government/Military
  3. Education
  4. Economy/Business
  5. Family
  6. Arts and Entertainment
  7. Religion/Church

Unfortunately, most of them have not represented the Kingdom of God, but the kingdoms of this world system. Matthew 6:33, (AMPC) “seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.” We are like Hezekiah – concerned about self, not the future of his children and grandchildren.

Since I am a Baby Boomer myself, let me reminisce my growing up. I grew up in a rural farming community in Minnesota, with a population of 500. I graduated top 10 in my class (of 17). Very little was store-bought. I got my first store-bought dress for my Lutheran Confirmation celebration when I was 13 years old. Our back-yard was not a swimming pool, but consisted of a huge vegetable garden, clothesline that was full every Monday, and a big barrel to burn our garbage. (yes – we burned our garbage, and we burned piles of leaves). We drank water out of a hose and raided the garden when the peas were ready to eat. When the town whistle blew at 12:00 noon and 6:00 pm, we knew to drop what we are doing and run home for lunch and dinner. At dinner, we all sat at the dining room table TOGETHER and ate after we had all said our prayers of thanksgiving for the meal. Nobody got to pick their own meal, everyone ate what was prepared and we were thankful for it. After the meal, the children were responsible to clean off the table and do the dishes. For chicken for the freezer, we watched Mom and Dad cut the head off of chickens from the farmers and watched as the chickens would run around the back yard with their heads cut off. They watched Mom pluck each of the chicken. We worked hard on Saturday, cleaning the whole house before we could do anything else. We mowed grass, shoveled  the snow, weeded the garden, work work work whatever needed to be done, we were a part. We were spanked, hard and lived through it. Sundays we all went to church together, sat in the same pew, were pinched when we giggled. After Church we normally had pot roast in the oven waiting for us before we had a relaxing Sunday afternoon. And when we graduated we got a suitcase to leave, because now we were grown up and should go out on our own.

Now compare today. We were raised in a time of growing prosperity and are left un-thankful. We may have not been spoiled, but have raise our children to be spoiled and believing life is all about them. Entitlement mentality.  Everyone on the team now gets a medal. Now even the grade-school age have their own cell phones – and predators know this. These kids are left to spend hours playing games that are forming their mindset into killers! 

But most don’t care, as long as we get what we want, who cares about our children and our grandchildren.

Baby Boomers have become like King Hezekiah. As long as their is peace and security in our time, who cares what we leave to the generation behind us. As long as we get our Social Security Check, who cares if this next generation never sees the financial security that they have paid for.

Maybe we need to take a long hard look at Hezekiah’s son, Manasseh. He became king at 12 years old and reigned for 55 years. He became known as the most wicked king in Judah’s history! What kind of a generation are we leaving behind?

Right now, suicide is the second cause of death in a 10-year old. Because of this global pandemic, the youth have lost hope for a future. Suicide is growing increasingly in the children and young adults. This is the legacy we are leaving. SELAH, pause and think about this. Then turn your prayers from asking God for more for yourself, but what can I do to help this next generation that will benefit the Kingdom of God.

 

I have really been seeing 33, 3:33 and 333 a lot lately and felt the need to do research. This first part is form my recent Bible Study and the latter part is from the scrubbed Space Launch today. Remember – Jesus never told us to “speculate”, but He did tell us to WATCH and PRAY!

  • Jesus warns to “watch and pray in Mark 13:33 “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” Also see Mark 13:34, 35, 37; 14:34, 37, 38
  • Ezekiel 33:3 speaks of the WATCHMAN, “‘when he (watchman) sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people,…”
  • Jeremiah 33:3, “‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
  • Isaiah 33:3, “At the noise of the tumult the people shall flee; when You lift Yourself up, the nations shall be scattered;”

Number 33 – Why is Holy Spirit highlighting this number right now? Watch & Pray!

  • On Lag B’ Omer this year was historic in Israel. There are 49 days of Counting of the Omer between Passover and Pentecost, and Lag B’Omer is the 33rd Day.  LAG is made up of 2 Hebrew letters which also represent a Hebrew number. Lamed (30) and Gimel (3) which total 33.
  • Normally Israel observed Lag B’ Omer holiday with over 100,000 worshipers at Mt Meron in the upper Galilee area of Israel, with all night worship and huge bonfires. This Historic year May 12, 2020 there was a limit to the fire and a very, very small limit to the worshipers. No bonfires were allowed in Jerusalem during the quarantine.
    • One reason for the observance, it is the day that the plague which took the lives of Rabbi Akiva’s 24,000 students came to an end.
    • Lag B’Omer is the day that marks the passing of one of Rabbi Akiva’s greatest students, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, in the second century CE. He died on Lag B’ Omer and was known for his light and fire of his teaching. He was believed to have been buried on Mt Meron

In the Bible, number 33 is the number of complete work. 

  • Jesus finished His earthly work on the 33rd year of His life.
  • There are 33 authors that complete the Bible.
  • Elohim (Trinity name) appears 33 times in Genesis Chapter 1.
  • King David reigned in Jerusalem 33 years (I Chron 29:27).

In Barbie Breathitt’s book on “A-Z Dream Symbology Dictionary” she wrote, “33 means “Promise, high prospective and spiritual consciousness, honesty, knowledge, and understanding; dying to self.”

So, I observe from the Bible that 33 is a very interesting number! But remember, the devil never creates anything – he only perverts. View the next examples  that are not a Biblical view:

  • Free Masonry has 33 degrees – 33rd being the highest level they can achieve. The House of the Temple in Washington DC has 33 outer columns which are each 33 feet high. 
  • 33rd Parallel – These are the cities of the world that rest directly on the 33rd parallel: Islamabad, Pakistan, Baghdad, Iraq, Phoenix, AZ, Long Beach, CA, Birmingham, AL.
    • FDR died on the 33rd parallel north, at Warm Springs, GA, and was replaced by the 33rd President of the United States, Harry Truman who was a 33rd Degree Mason, and was the first President to order the dropping of the atomic bomb, which was tested on the 33rd degree parallel, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Years later, JFK was assassinated in Dallas, TX, a city close to the 33rd parallel.
  • Ancient Vedic Religion (Hinduism) – 33 is the number of their deities
  • Buddhism – The word trāyastriṃśa is an adjective formed from the numeral trayastriṃśat, “33” and can be translated in English as “belonging to the thirty-three [devas] – second level of heaven
  • Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage visits 33 Buddhist temples throughout Japan
  • According to Al-Ghazali (Persian Philosopher), dwellers in heaven will exist eternally in the state of being age 33.
  • Islamic prayer beads are normally sets of 33 beads
  • Pope John Paul 1 was the 33-day pope, shortest reign in history
  • Klu Klux Klan – 33 is one of their symbols. ‘K’ is the 11th number of the Alpha Bet and 3 times 11 is KKK
  • Psychic – 33 is a Master Number (Master Teacher) and resonates with energies of compassion, blessings, inspiration, honesty, discipline, bravery and courage. Number 33 tells us that ‘all things are possible’. 33 also symbolizes guidance
  • Angel Number – 33 symbolizes growth – seeing 33 often means you need to ‘grow up’!

33 years ago – 1987, President Reagan (40th President), Russian Mikhail Gorbachev and Pope John II worked together to change the world. Perry Stone wrote in his Unusual Prophecies Being Fulfilled Prophet Series, Book 4 is “The Pope, The Eagle and the Iron Sickle.”

  • President Reagan is best know for “tear down that wall”
  • Mikhail Gorbachev is most famous for ending the Cold War and during his presidency USSR ended after 70 years
  • Pope John II was actually a defender of the Jews during WWII and living in Poland he worked to save many Jews from the Holocaust

Today the US Space Launch was scheduled. Some things interesting about this special launch are:

  • It was the first US Space launch since 2011
  • It is the first US Space Launch of the Decade
  • It was supposed to liftoff at 3:33 pm CST
  • The Rocket Ship was called Dragon. The SpaceX Dragon, also known as Dragon 1 was a reusable cargo spacecraft developed by SpaceX, an American private space transportation company.
    • Dragon is mentioned 12 times  in the 12th chapter of the Book of Revelation (12 is the biblical number of governmental perfection – see E.W. Bullinger’s Numbers in Scripture)
  • No longer will we be relying on Russia Russia Russia to get into space.
  • It is rescheduled for Saturday, May 30, Which is the 2nd Day of Jewish Feast of Pentecost, known in Hebrew as Shavu’ot. This year we have Jewish Pentecost 2 days followed by Christian Pentecost Sunday — 3 days of Pentecost!!!! And I believe it will Historical. The prophets are really expecting a sound from heaven and a mighty move of God on the earth.

One of the young area intercessors wrote this today: “I was knee deep in a COVID Biblical comparison of 333 and the gist of it was a lot of people have been seeing 333 recently since COVID started and they feel like it’s an angelic sign – that 3 dots 3 dashes 3 dots is a sign for SOS and that God is stirring up to get our attention, which lines up with a lot of the word of the season. To get ready and to get with God and to listen to what He’s doing and what He’s speaking because of the importance of this time.”

 

 

 

Psalm 103:5, “Who satisfies your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s”

The verse above reveals a secret of the eagle’s power – it’s renewal. Unlike other birds, eagles molt in their old age and renew their feathers. With the renewal of feathers come a renewal of youth and energy.

Too many of us are allowing the enemy to beat us up when we feel faithless, weary and tired. But the Bible clearly states in Isaiah 40:30 in the Amplified Bible, “Even youths shall faint and be weary, and [selected] young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted.”

The word “weary” means to be weary physically, to get tired, to get beat down, worn down in the soul (mind, will and emotions) from the enemy repeatedly coming against you and to grow powerless in spirit (the real you) from the repeated attacks.

People who have demanding professions have a regular extended period of rest.  Soldiers have R & R, teachers have holidays, missionaries have furlough. While these periods of rest are important, they do not promise strength. True rest and strength come from the Lord. Isaiah 40:29 promises me, “He gives power to the faith and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]. (AMP)

There is nothing we can do to avoid getting weary and worn out. You will get worn out on a regular basis and the only way to avoid the weariness that destroys us is to spend time in the presence of God. The Bible gives us 26 vivid examples of eagles and one of my favorites is the example of renewing our strength from Isaiah 40:31.

No one seems to know exactly how the eagle regains youth. There are different legends and theories. Eagles live to be approximately 30-50 years old and halfway in their life span they go through a mid-life crisis. From different studies and teachers I have come upon these steps an eagle will take to renew their strength (In the parenthesis I have likened the eagle’s example to us in the stage we find ourselves needing renewed strength).

  1. The eagle is not as quick as he once was. Strong eagles have been measured at traveling 150 miles per hour during a dive. (You find yourself being exhausted from a normal day’s ministry or work. You stop soaring and start running in your own strength because you could not naturally understand God. He did not answer your prayer the way you thought He would. Then you stop running and start walking slower.)
  2. He is slower in flight. The average eagle should be able to catch a current and reach speeds of over 50 miles per hour. (The joy of the Lord is gone. You begin to sit towards the back of the Church, then you miss church services more and more.)
  3. His feathers are worn and they whistle as he dives for his prey. A bald eagle can see a rabbit moving from 1 mile away and when he is at an altitude of 984 feet over open country can spot prey over an area of 3 square miles. The eagle is created by God to be able to dive after the prey and quietly come upon them without any warning. As the feathers are worn they whistle and they are unable to hunt effectively. ( You find yourself speaking negative about your situation. Instead of creating with your mouth, you are creating an atmosphere for failure.)
  4. The wings become so weak and they spend most of their time in the valley. They end up walking and acting more and more like a turkey than an eagle. (You find yourself looking at everything as it is, not as God sees it. You lose hope. You are believing things are as bad as the local news claims. You forget God’s ability and limit Him.)
  5. The talons are not sharp anymore. He has trouble picking up things and in the process the prey gets away. (The revelation knowledge is not coming like it used to and you give up your Bible reading because you are not getting anything out of it.)
  6. There is calcification formed on his beak so he is not able to pick up and eat properly. (Discouragement and defeat are on the tip of your tongue on a constant basis. You are speaking doubt and defeat without realizing what you are doing)
  7. His nostrils fill with calcium and he cannot breathe sufficiently to clean off his feathers. There is a process that is called preening that an eagle goes through daily and the entire process takes about one hour. This is where the eagle daily cleans each feather through his mouth and exhales and breathes on it. As he breathes on each feather it is equivalent to a steam cleaning. The US National Parks Service states, “Because they rely on flight for their survival, bald eagles must spend a large part of their day preening over the 7,000 feathers.” An average wing has up to 1200 feathers each and this process restores the feathers from that former day’s activities. During this process there is a gland in his mouth that secretes an oily substance that enables him to soar during storms, and fly into any water without being dragged down. What a wonderful waterproofing method the Lord has given to the eagle. (You find yourself getting counsel and help from people instead of Holy Spirit. You begin to live on the revelation from other preachers and not getting any Rhema word from God by intimate fellowship and relationship)

The process of renewal takes approximately 40 days. The number 40 in the Bible is associated with probation, trial and chastisement. This is not punishment but the chastisement of sons, and of a covenant people. The following is the process of renewal they go through. (Remember, our process is in parenthesis)

  1. He seeks a cool stream to wash the mud off.  (Purposely set aside time for the Lord. Realize He is your only hope. Remember His faithfulness to cleanse you.)
  2. The eagle goes to a cave or preferably a high place, usually a rock. (Matthew 6:6, AMP – “But when you pray, to into your [most] private room, and closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.” This is the time only for you and God, no one else.)
  3. He gets as close to the sun as possible. (Turn your spiritual eyes upon Jesus. Focus all your energy – spirit, soul and body on Him. Call upon Him. Acknowledge Him for who He is, our Creator and our Redeemer. He is the author and the finisher of our faith.)
  4. He scratches his talons on the rock until they are nubs. (Self-denial, fasting. During times of functioning in our own strength we pick up bad habits, tendencies or mental strongholds. At this time we purposely put those down, deny them. To deny oneself is to purposely put the interest of the Kingdom of God first in every area of your life.)
  5. He breaks his beak off by hitting it on a rock. There is a new beak underneath that will not come out until the old one is gone. (Purposely setting your mouth to speak the Word of God, refusing to speak negative. Proverbs 18:21 in the Amplified Bible instructs us, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].”)
  6. He tears out his feathers one by one (full grown can have up to 7,000 feathers). He is not as concerned with this pain process as he is with the end result. He plucks the dried and useless feathers from their wings one by one until he is bald. (Forgive people who have hurt you, forgive yourself for your failures, break the power of negative words spoken by yourself or others, pulling out disappointments, acknowledging failure and putting them in the past, forgiveness for unfulfilled vows, times you have given place to the devil. Painfully pull them out one by one acknowledging each act of your sin and rebellion against God. Not only recognizing the, but immediately seek and receive forgiveness that only God can and will give.)
  7. When he is fresh, clean and naked he lies on the rock, facing the Sun “Spread Eagle” soaking up the Sun. (Rest in what He has already done for you. Meditate on who you are in Him. Let Him love you and speak to you. Let Jesus do the work, while you rest trusting Him.)
  8. Older, experienced eagles fly overhead and drop him fresh meat. Those older eagles have already gone through these tough times and know what he is going through. The younger eagles are excited to have  a chance and they hope will not come back so they can take their place. (Let someone spiritually mature know what you are going through so they can be praying for you. They have been there before and will not condemn, but pray for you.)

During this time many eagles give up and die. They are vulnerable to predators when their feathers are gone and they cannot fly. During this 40 day process the Sun is giving them renewed strength, their feathers are growing back young and strong, the new beak underneath is coming out and their talons are now strong and sharp again.

There is only so much that teaching, people, tapes, books and friends can do for us. They all have a vital role to play in our spiritual growth but can never take the place of spending time in the presence of God. Sometimes we need to just lay everything down before the Lord and be quiet.

During that time you are doing nothing, and God is doing the work that needs to be done. As He brings things to your remembrance, people you need to forgive, vows you have not fulfilled, words you have spoken out of turn, etc., pluck them out as the painful pulling out of feathers. This is the only way we will ever be able to fulfill what God has for us to do. The whistling of the feather is very much like the casualty covenants [1] we make with our words that bring disaster to our lives and cause us not soar like an eagle.

My friend Mickie Winborn was dying of cancer with no hope left. God showed her that she had made an evil agreement with the powers of the enemy’s will by the words she had spoken that had allowed disease to come upon her. Matthew 12:37 in the Amplified Bible says, “For by YOUR words you will be justified and acquitted, and by YOUR words you will be condemned and sentenced.” She was able to break the power of those words and is not a gifted author, intercessor and speaker; bringing hope and deliverance to thousands of people each year.

Those words we speak from the abundance of neglect, fear and unbelief cause us not to be able to win any victories. At this time, as we put a watch over our mouth, we will be as written in Psalm 103:5, “Who satisfies your mouth with GOOD things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” The words the Holy Spirit will bring to our remembrance will be words that bring life and not death.

As we wait upon the Lord, He will show us what to pick up and what to put down. Many of us have suffered from the results of too many ‘time wasters’ in our lives. Time wasters is a phrase that the Lord gave me when He was helping me reorganize my time to have more time for Him. Holy Spirit is to be our Guide, Teacher, Comforter, Strengthener and Helper and He is waiting for you to ask Him what to put down and what to pick up.

The majority of the time He will show you what you need to pick up is not a new hobby or something else to fill your hour, but time with your Father God. Time hearing from Him be most valuable for you and your family, your nation, your future. Time with God is never wasted. These are priceless gems that do not lay on the surface to be picked up quickly.

The following is an excerpt from a sermon given by Dr. Mark Corts: During the depression, there was a man by the name of Yates who lived in west Texas. He was not able to make enough money from his sheep ranch to pay for his mortgage. The bankers allowed him to stay on the ranch out of the goodness of their hearts. However, he was in danger of losing it. He had little or no money for food or clothing for his family. Like many others, he had to live on some kind of government subsidy. Everyday as he watched his sheep grazing he was no doubt gently troubled. How would he ever pay his bills? Was there an end in sight?

He grew very, very weary and was ready to walk away from it all. Then, a seismographic crew from an oil company came to his ranch. They told him there may be oil on his land and asked permission to drill a wildcat oil well. He signed a contract for them to do so. The first well came in at 80,000 barrels a day! Many subsequent wells were more than twice as large as that. In fact, thirty years later, one well was still producing 125,000 barrels of oil a day. His troubles were over. What was fascinating  is that he owned that oil the whole time he was weary and worried. He simply never tapped into what was rightfully his. [2]

Too many Christians are living on a limitless source of wisdom, resources, strength and energy but spend all their time running around with chickens instead of waiting to tap into the endless source of supply that comes from the Lord.

Psalm 78:41 speaks of how limited God, “Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.” They tempted God by expecting God to prove Himself constantly. Over and over the Bible tells us ‘the just shall live by faith’. It is God’s privilege to test man, but it is not man’s right to test God. (except in tithing)

Things that have been restored are generally stronger than the original.  He will use any failure, disappointment or heartache and turn it somehow to the good for you and those He puts in your path to strengthen.

Jesus knew that Peter was coming to a time that could make or break him. In Luke 22:31-32 Jesus says, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
