A Blue Moon is not really blue in color, but an idiom for ‘something that does not happen very often’, or ‘once in a blue moon’. It represents the second of 2 full moons in one month and happens approximately once in 2.7 years. HOWEVER, we are not in normal times! This is the 2nd Blue Moon in 2018, two in 60 days!

The Blue Moon is on Virgo’s heart! It reminds me of Mary, and how Simeon prophesied to her in Luke 2:34-35, “…..many people will reject Him, and you Mary, will suffer as though you were stabbed with a dagger.”(CLV). Under each photo shot from my iPhone Sky View App, I go into detail of the constellations and magnificent Signs in the Heavens.

Virgo Passover 2018 with Blue Moon

Virgo-in Hebrew Bethulah, means ‘virgin’.
This represents the “Promised Seed of the Woman”. Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23

Sagitarrius Passover 2018 with Saturn and Mars

Sagittarius (the Archer) THE REDEEMER’S TRIUMPH- showing our victories as Christians.
Rev 6:2, And I looked and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given him, and he went out conquering and to conquer”.
Two Natured Conqueror going forth -(Son of Man and Son of God)
Archer has speed in the arrow, when Jesus comes it will be quickly.

On his head is Saturn (Shabbatai- Sabbath Rest) and Mars (Ma’Adim, the Red One- known as the planet of war)  When they say peace, peace- then sudden destruction will come.
Libra Passover 2018 with Jupiter

THE SCALES- Libra, Daniel 5:27, “the scales, weighing”. The only way to balance our sins was not the Son of Righteousness to take our sins and give us His righteousness. The planet Jupiter is called Tzedek in Hebrew, meaning ‘righteousness’. It is the King planet, largest. And represents the Messiah, the Coming King.

Keep looking up! Our redemption draws nigh!

A Blue Moon is when there are 2 full moons in one month, the 2nd is called a Blue Moon. “Once in a Blue Moon” is an idiom that means ‘it does not happen very often’. This is the 2nd Blue Moon in 2018, 2 in 60 days! The normal occurrence is 1 in 2.7 years. But then again, we are living in very exciting times. AND THIS ONE FALLS ON PASSOVER!!!!

 

When God “remembered” Noah, it was not because he had ‘forgot’ Noah in the Flood. It was time for the power of the promise to come into the situation! With this teaching you will gain a new understanding of when Jesus told us to take Communion in “remembrance” of Him. His disciples did not question, because they knew the Hebrew understanding of Zakar.

L’ Shana Tova! Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of year 5778, counting the years since the creation of Adam. This is a two-day Feast of the LORD, because ‘no man knows the day or the hour’ when the first sliver of moon is sighted. I have found several names for this ‘fixed appointed time’ on God’s Day-timer. There are 7 Feasts of the Lord, 6 of them have historical significance, but this Feast has no history. The Feast of Trumpets point to future events.

  • Spring Feast Season (all fulfilled) (have to do with ‘personal salvation’)
    • Passover
    • Feast of Unleavened Bread
    • Feast of First Fruit
  • Summer Feast (fulfilled)
    • Pentecost
  • Fall Feast Season (yet to be fulfilled) (have to do with ‘national salvation’)
    • Feast of Trumpets
    • Day of Atonement
    • Feast of Tabernacles

The Names of the Feast of Trumpets reveal of what will be happening when this Feast is fulfilled.

  • Rosh HaShanah – Head (rosh) of the (ha) Year (shanah), when the number of the year changes
  • Yom Teruah – “blowing of trumpets” or “The Day of the Awakening Blast”
  • The Time of Jacob’s Trouble – another name for the Tribulation
  • Yom Ha-Zikaron – “Day of Remembrance” – the day to remember to blow the shofar 100 times
  • Yom HaDin / Day of Judgment / The Opening of the Books / Opening of the Gates – these names all have to do with the 3 books that are opened in heaven on this day for judgment (1) The books of the Righteous (2) The books of the Unrighteous (3) The books of those in-between. These 10 days between Feast of Trumpets and Yom Kippur is believed to be the time when judgment will be set for the next year.
  • Yom HaKeseh – “The Hidden Day”, Zeph 2:1-4, ‘…it may be you shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger’, Ps 27:5, ‘He shall hide me’
  • Ha Kiddushin / Nesuin – “Wedding of the Messiah” – Joel 2:15-16’… let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet (chuppah)’
  • Ha Melech – “Coronation of the Messiah as King of the whole earth”

Rosh Hashanah (Head of the Year) begins tonight at sundown. As the sun goes down, the month. day and year will change. The year will become 5778, marking the years since the creation of man (Adam)

The Feast of Trumpets (also called Rosh Hashanah or Yom Teruah) begins by the blowing of trumpets (shofars or rams horns). There are 100 blasts of the shofar:

  • Tekiah blast“- awakening sound, one long blast (3 second)
  • Shevarim, “broken”- three shorter ones- weeping, lamenting, broken heart
  • Teruah, “alarm”, nine quick blasts in short succession (totaling 3 seconds)
  • These series are blown 11 times for a total of 99 blasts
  • After that, the final blast is knows as Tekiah Hagodolah, “great blast” or “THE LAST TRUMP”! (minimum of 10 seconds)

Rosh Hashanah begins 10 Days of Awe that will end on Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement that begins at nightfall, September 29, which begins Tishri 10 on the Hebraic calendar. Yom Kippur ends the 40 days of Teshuvah (repentance, turning back to God). For 40 days they have been reading aloud Psalm 27, as they make a Chuppah (canopy or covenant covering) over themselves and their loved one. They have also been making restitution to those who they have harmed, giving to the poor and doing acts of kindness. (things we should do daily, but neglect)

At the time of the blowing of the trumpets on Rosh Hashanah, it is believed by the observing Jewish people that these blasts are heard in heaven and 3 books are opened. Malachi 3:16, “Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, And the LORD listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD And who meditate on His name. (17) “They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels.* And I will spare them As a man spares his own son who serves him. (18) Then you shall again discern Between the righteous and the wicked, Between one who serves God And one who does not serve Him.” (Also see Revelation 20:12)

  1. Book of the Righteous sealed with the seal of God who would immediately be written for good life the next year (Revelation 3:5)
  2. Book of the Unrighteous, who would be judged during the year; the totally unrighteous whose names are blotted out.(Ps 69:28)
  3. Book of the Intermediate, those who are not completely righteous or wicked. They would have until the Day of Atonement to make restitution and get right with God or they would not be in the Book of Life. (Joel 3:14)

L’Shanah Tovah Tikatevu Literal Hebrew to English Translation: “May you be inscribed (in the Book of Life) for a good year.” This traditional Rosh HaShanah greeting wishes others a good year and is often shorted to “Shanah Tovah” (Good Year).

Years ago, the Rabbis realized that Ha’Satan (The Accuser) actually has the numberical value of the Hebrew letters of 364. They believed that there was one day that Ha’satan did not have access to them, The Day of Atonement which is the day when the blood was put on the Mercy Seat on the Holy of Holies for the sins of the nation.

As a believer, I am spending the Days of Awe praying for our nation, the nation of Israel and for the Jewish people to find Jesus as their Messiah.

Ezekiel 22:30, “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”

How many is our LORD going to find this year? Are you one of those who stand in the gap?
