Wednesday night April 8, at sundown, the Feast of Passover begins. This is the FIRST time that the inhabitants of Israel are commanded to quarantine in their homes since the first Passover of Exodus 12

Passover retells annually about when Moses told the Israelites to kill the lamb at twilight, sprinkle the blood of the lamb on the doorposts, go inside the home, close the door, roast the lamb and eat the entire lamb. At midnight, all the first-born in Egypt that were not behind the door with the blood died. (Exodus 12)

This year there are so many heavenly signs that I have posted previously this year:

  • Supermoon on Purim 2020 (2 day festival celebrating the salvation of the Jews world-wide, as recorded in the Book of Esther
  • Venus in Conjunction with Pleiades on the 10th day of the 1st month (Exodus 12:3)
  • The current pandemic COVID-19 and Corona “The Crown Bestowed” connection
  • Signs in the Sun, solar storms, affecting the Marine Life world-wide

The Supermoon of Passover this year will be the closest moon to the earth of 2020 and will look the largest and brightest. I saw an article in Breaking Israel News  of April 6 where the writer referred to this as and “End of Days Omen”, siting Micah 7:15, “As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them wonders.” 

  • “The supermoon on Passover is not happenstance,” Rabbi Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, told Breaking Israel News. “God brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt on a specific day, a day that from the beginning of creation was imbued with special powers of redemption. The Midrash (homiletic teachings) say that the first redemption of Israel took place on this night and the final redemption will as well.”
  • “One of the wonders that will be seen in the end-of-days is an increase in the moon,” Rabbi Berger said.

That really struck me because I was up at 2:00 AM this morning reading the entire book of Micah! This last chapter I really spent time reading over and over. I have this chapter highlighted and underlined because this is what is read annually at a Tashlich, a repentance ceremony on the first day of Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets), by a flowing body of water. Micah 7:18:Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. (19) He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” Now I see why this fits perfect into this Passover!

You will hear that this is a “pink” moon, and that name comes from the Native American Indians in the northern states. They had a name for ever “full moon” of the year and that is how they understood seasons. This moon is NOT a “Blood Moon” and will NOT look pink or red.

  • January – Wolf Moon
  • February – Snow Moon
  • March – Worm Moon
  • April – Pink Moon (the pink wild flowers would be first to blossom across the fields)
  • May – Flower Moon
  • June – Strawberry Moon
  • July – Buck Moon
  • August – Sturgeon Moon
  • September – Harvest Moon or Full Corn Moon
  • October -Hunters Moon
  • November – Beavers Moon
  • December – Cold Moon

 

Venus and Pleiades April 3

Posted: April 4, 2020 in Uncategorized

It was very overcast last night so I could not see the conjunction. But I did capture it from my Sky View app on my iPhone.

This will be the best show of these stars tonight, April 3, 2020. Right after sundown, look west and you will see a bright star. This will be the conjunction of the planet Venus and the 7 stars that form Pleiades in the neck of Taurus ‘the Bull’. Spaceweather.com says this will be the best viewing of this conjunction in 8 years.

Now I will show you why I am really excited about this heavenly sign tonight. Remember, several proven prophets have been saying this is going to be the most outstanding Passover we have ever seen!!

On the Hebraic Calendar, tonight at sundown is the 10th day of the 1st month of the year. God directed Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:2, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. (3) “Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,  “Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.” They were going to inspect the lamb for 4 days (vs 6) and then on the 14th day at twilight (sundown), they were to kill that lamb, put the blood of the lamb on their doorposts, and roast the lamb for the entire household to eat that evening.  At midnight the death angel would kill each first-born that was not behind the door of blood.

The 10th of the 1st month during the week of the Crucifixion of Jesus was when He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling Zechariah 9:9. Each of the 4 Gospels record what Christian congregations now call “Palm Sunday”. The Christian calendar of the Holy Week does not always line up with God’s calendar, but this year it is very close, both being on the Sabbath of their faith and the same weekend.

What I see in this heavenly sign tonight is Jesus coming to inspect the 7 Churches of Revelation 2-3. (read Revelation 1:12-20). These 7 church had historical meaning, and personal meaning to each of us today.

Below I will lay out what each of these heavenly stars mean from Biblical Astronomy. Remember, Genesis 1:14 said these ‘light holders’ were to be for ‘Signs’ and for ‘Seasons’.

Taurus the Bull With Orion

TAURUS – ‘The Bull’ 

  • Message of the stars in order of brightness, “Messiah, the coming Judge of all the earth”
  • Hebrew name “Shur“, meaning ‘coming and ruling’
    • Remember – God named each star with a purpose. (Ps 147:4)
    • Wandering Stars – planets
    • Fixed Stars – constellation – each constellation reads from Virgo about Jesus’ 1st Coming and ends with Leo and Jesus’ 2nd Coming.
  • E.W. Bullinger in his classic book, Witness of the Stars reads, “This is a picture of a Bull rushing forward with mighty energy and fierce wrath, his horns set so as to push his enemies, and pierce them through and destroy them.” (pg 120)
  • Interesting connection to the current stock market – a Bear Market is a down market because a bear’s claws come down. A Bull Market is when the market comes up because a bull lifts up with his horns. (I hope this sign will be announcing the upswing of the world stock market soon)
  • Look at the picture above, at the neck and shoulders of the Bull. You will see 7 stars clustered together. That cluster is knows as Pleiades.
  • These represent the 7 Churches of Rev 2-3. Historically, when John was given this revelation of Jesus, there were 7 actual churches in a circuit at the base of the “Taurus” Mountains, in the area what is today called Turkey.

PLEIADES  (aka ‘Seven Sisters’ or  M45)

  • Job 38:31, 32, “Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?”
    • Mazzaroth is the Hebrew name for ‘constellation’ – each has a season on the path circuit God ordered on the 4th day of Creation.
  • Pleiades is also mentioned in Job 9:9 and Amos 5:8.
  • In Hebrew Pleiades is called ‘kiymah’ and means “Congregation of the Ruler”, a heap or a cluster
  • This is a cluster of 7 stars that are in the Constellation of Taurus, ‘The Bull’ (see sky map above.
  • The Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3 were main churches in a circuit at the base of the Taurus Mountains (today Turkey)

VENUS

  • Venus is one of the main planets of Creation. To be a sign for the world to see, it must be visible with the naked eye. According to Rabbinical teachers, there were 7 planets that formed a heavenly menorah on the 4th day of Creation. 
  • Venus in Hebrew is called, ‘Nogah‘, meaning ‘brightness’
  • Known as the ‘morning star’ because it can be seen just before sunrise and closer to the sun than earth. The day of the Lord, like the dawning of any calendar day, does not burst forth abruptly. It is not pitch back at 5:59 am and then bright morning the at 6am. The night gradually recedes as dawn comes. In that transition, before dawn breaks, the morning star begins to shine on the eastern horizon. This is actually the planet Venus. This portrays what God intends for the Bride of Christ in these last days before our Beloved Bridegroom comes for us. (Isaiah 60:1-3, ‘arise shine’)
  • Revelation 22:16 reads, ““I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.
    • We see the Bride of Christ being symbolized as ‘morning star’, but also Jesus Himself stated that He is the Bright and Morning Star.”

The Church belongs to Jesus and I believe what is happening around the world today is not just an event, but an invitation to return back to your first love.

The Seven Church Periods throughout history align with the order of the Seven Churches of Revelation.

  1. EPHESUSThe Apostolic Church– Pentecost to 170 AD
  2. SMYRNA – The Age of Persecution – 170 – 312 AD
  3. PERGAMUMThe Age of False Doctrine – 312 – 606 AD
  4. THYATIRAThe Age of Darkness – 606 – 1520 AD
  5. SARDISThe Age of Reformation – 1520 – 1750 AD
  6. PHILADELPHIAThe Age of Missions – 1750-1906 AD
  7. LAODICEAThe Age of Apostasy – 1906 to present

I urge you during these next 4 days to get quiet, Read Rev 3:14-22 about the “Lukewarm Church” and judge (inspect) yourself. Maybe you would like to read both chapters 2 & 3. Revelation 1:3 states there is a blessing just for reading and hearing this amazing book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Then take communion – just you and Jesus. You don’t need a priest to take communion. Revelation 1:5-6 tells us that Jesus washed us in His own blood and made us kings (authority) and priests (access to God).

 

I was listening to a recording of Pastor Mark Barclay (marktbarclay.com) when he was a speaker at a ministers conference this past January. Towards the end he begins to speak boldly of experiences of calling on the God of the Tithe to rebuke the devourer. When I heard it I was surprised because I had a strong witness in my heart that this was the hour to call on the God of the Tithe.

He shared on how he had called on the God of the Tithe when the doctors said his wife would not survive the assault of cancer in her body. She was determined cancer free 32 days later and the doctor was astounded! He called on the God of the Tithe when his tender age granddaughter was pronounced dead after drowning in the family swimming pool. Immediately after he started to rebuke death and called on the God of the Tithe she began to breathe and is a grown young lady today.

Malachi 3:8 declares, ““For I am the LORD, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. (10) Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. (11) And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the LORD of hosts

Lord of Hosts is Jehovah SabaothJehovah is ‘Lord or Master‘. Sabaoth in Hebrew means “an army going out to war.” This title in the Bible is referred to as ‘Lord of the angel armies’, or ‘Lord of Hosts’. God is always there to defend us, fight our battles, and win our wars. There is no enemy He cannot defeat – nothing is too hard for Him.

When Ken and I were born again in 1982, we tried to tithe, but our bills were too much that we only gave offerings. In 1992 we came to end of our own selves and one of the promises to God we made was that we would always tithe, no matter what. It was not going to be a promise made in fear of God punishing us. This commitment we made was a matter of honor. A commitment to honor Him not just with our time, our service, but our finances. That was 38 years ago, and we have lacked nothing. The first 2 years of tithing was fighting our flesh and fear of lack. But if all we got that week was $10, we sang and waved our $1 to God on the way to Church on Sunday. We rejoiced.

We have given some pretty big tithe checks in these past 28 years and have never regretted our commitment. We have been audited by the IRS twice in those years and both times it was to prove we gave that much to the Church, mission and ministries who were 501(c)3 Religious organizations. Both times we had proof that our giving far outreached 10%.

I was listening to a minister today that I highly respect. He was asked a question about if he thought God was judging the world right now.  He sat back and realized they were in fear of an angry God in heaven, sitting with a baseball bat, ready to punish. I loved his answer that in the time of Egypt, God said that he was going to judge Egypt’s gods.

Numbers 33:4, For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments. (Ex 12:12) In each one of the plagues, God was coming against one of their gods until there was none left.

The minister I was listening to today said, “I believe God is coming against the god of Mammon right now.” I agree.  Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever is trusted in).” (AMPC) Also read Luke 16:9,11,13.

During these trying times, I am thankful for the GOD OF THE TITHES! I am at peace.

Corona, “The Crown Bestowed” is one of the constellations of the 1st of 3 Books in Heaven that tell the story of Jesus from Virgin (Virgo) to the last of the 3rd Book, Leo ‘The Lion’, The Lion of the Tribe of Judah aroused for the rending of the enemy.  God is the Creator of the Stars, He named each star and numbered each star. Jesus may have come to be the Sacrificial Lamb, but He will come back SOON Roaring as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!

Corona

Book One consists of 4 main constellations, with each having 3 smaller constellations.

  • VIRGO‘The Virgin’ – The Promised Seed of a Woman
    • Coma – ‘The Desired’ The Desired of all  nations
    • Centaurus – ‘The Centaur’ The despised sin offering
    • Bootes – ‘The Coming One’ He Cometh
  • LIBRA‘The Scales’ – The price deficient balanced by the price that covers
    • Crux – ‘The Southern Cross’ The Cross Endured
    • Victima – ‘The Victim’ The Victim Slain
    • CORONA – ‘The Crown’ The Crown Bestowed
  • SCORPIO‘The Scorpion’ – The serpent seeking to wound, but itself trodden under foot
    • Ophiuchus – ‘The Serpent Holder’ The struggle with the enemy
    • Serpens – ‘The Serpent’ The serpent struggling with many
    • Hercules – ‘The Mighty One’ The mighty Vanquisher seeming to sink in conflict
  • SAGITTARIUS – ‘The Archer’ Conquering and to Conquer
    • Lyra – ‘The Harp’ Praise prepared for the Conqueror
    • Ara – ‘The Altar’ Consuming fire prepared for His enemies
    • Draco – ‘The Dragon’ The old serpent, the devil, cast down from heaven

Phil 2:9-10 reads, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” The devil is a counterfeit, a liar, a deceiver and has tried to counterfeit the heavens for his purpose. But Jesus is on the Throne in the Third Heaven and satan knows his time is running out. Even with this current pandemic, he has tried to steal the attention of ‘the Crown’ to cause fear.

So, let’s hear God’s plan for this constellation. One of my favorite references is “The Witness of the Stars” by E.W. Bullinger. He states that each chapter of each book ends with the glory and the glory of the SCALES, is that Jesus won  the Crown! Hebrew 2:7 declares, “You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands.” The shameful Cross (Crux) is followed by the glorious Crown!

The Hebrew name is Atarah, ‘a royal crown’, and its stars are known today in the East by the plural, Ataroth! Its Arabic name is Al Iclil,  meaning ‘an ornament’ or jewel.

This small constellation is made up of 21 stars. The brightest star has the Arabic name of Al Phecca, ‘the shining‘.

D. James Kennedy wrote in “The Real Meaning of the Zodiac”, pg 33 about this constellation. “Look up in the sky and see the Northern Crown, the Corona Borealis (which, by the way, shines at midnight every night over the city of Jerusalem) and be reminded that there is a crown for those who are faithful to Jesus Christ.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

First things often represent first things in the Bible. When we come to the words of Jesus concerning the Last Days, I take great note of the order in which they fall.

One day I was reading Luke 21:25, the order of the heavenlies stood out to me.  “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”. I really felt that right now, God was showing me to look at the Sun for Signs in the Heavens, not the Moon. So I began to look at the cycles of the Sun and got an amazing revelation of how the Solar Flares are affecting the earth right now.

Right now the Solar Storms are making international news because it is causing the death of many whales that are beached on the shores. See image below from the UK. “Space weather isn’t just for humans. Whales are experiencing it, too. A new study published this week in the research journal Current Biology shows that solar storms can confuse whales and cause them to strand on beaches–and the mechanism is surprising. Get the full story on Spaceweather.com.” It is a fascinating study.

Image result for beached whales

The Sun greatly affects the earth’s magnetic core. When an extreme solar flare happens, it pulls on the magnetic field of the earth and there will be an increase of earthquakes and volcanoes on the earth. There will be an increase of chaos and violence (wars and rumors of war) because it affects mankind. We are very electromagnetic people and that is why doctors can read our heart health by EKG. For this reason there are more heart attacks and problems with heart pacemakers.

Jesus told us to watch for signs, and the Sun is a very interesting thing to watch. There are several reports that the North and South Poles are about to flip! I did a web search on this and there were 15 million articles to read on that one subject! We are living in very interesting times indeed.

Happy Valentine’s Day! As I was thinking about sharing on my FaceBook and YouTube High 5 today, Song of Solomon 5:10-16 came to my mind. This is the maiden sharing with the daughters of Jerusalem (immature believers) about her beloved. I want to break down those verses for you because they are so full of Jewish idioms and poetic phrases. As you meditate on these traits, representing our Bridegroom Jesus Christ, I pray that your love and appreciation for Him will be magnified this Valentine’s Day of 2020.

  • White in Hebrew is tsach, dazzling, glowing, bright (represents purity, separated from any sin)

His lips drop myrrh; every word of grace that comes out of His mouth is based on His death. Whether it is, “Your sins are forgiven…Go in peace” (7:48-50), “He who believes has eternal life” (John 6:47), or “Rise and take up your mat and walk” (Mark 2:9), all these words are based on His death
