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.”

 

 

 

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

 

Today is the first day of the 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, the last of the Feasts of the LORD (not Feast of Israel and not Feast of the Jews). God said in Leviticus 23, “These are MY Feasts!” Feast in Hebrew is moedim, “fixed appointed times on God’s calendar‘.

Today (last night) moon. The 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles is always a full moon. Some years there is a Blood Moon on this day, as in 2014 & 2015 Blood Moon Tetrads. https://mbostrom2.com/tag/tetrad/ Passover and Day 1 of the Feast of Tabernacles are the only Feasts of the Lord that can have a Blood Moon. Blood Moons happen on a ‘full moon’ and Solar Eclipses happen when there is no light on the moon, right before the start of a Hebraic month.

The October Moon has come to be called a “Hunter’s Moon” in North America. It comes from the Native American Indians who lived in the north east area of the United States and they name each full moon after the cycle of what happens on the land that month.

January – Wolf Moon, named for the hungry wolves who would howl at the full moon

February – Snow Moon or Hunger Moon, when the food is so scarce from the cold and snow

March – Worm Moon, when the earth worms begin to move again as the ground begins to warm

April – Pink Moon, named after the pink flower that would bloom this month, phlox, first blooming in the Spring in the Northeast.

May – Flower Moon, when the wild flowers would be in full bloom

June – Strawberry Moon, when the strawberry fields would be ready to be picked

July – Buck Moon, when the new antlers would begin to appear on young bucks

August – Sturgeon Moon, known for the large number of fish in the Northeastern Lakes where the Algonquin tribes fished.

September – Harvest Moon (also full Corn Moon), when the farmer would work around the clock to get the fields harvested before the snow would fall.

October – Hunter’s Moon, when the animals are fattened and the hunters would find game to last through the long winter months

November – Beaver Moon, when the beavers are most active building their dams and setting in for the cold

December – Cold Moon, when the cold of winter begins to set into the Northern Hemisphere

 

This will be the last day of year 5779 on the Hebraic calendar. Tonight at sundown it will be 5780, Adam’s birthday. The calendar year begins with the 6th day of Creation. Sundown tonight begins Rosh HaShanah, the Head (rosh) of the Year (shanah). It is also called Yom Teruah (blowing of Trumpets- Lev 23:23-25), Feast of Trumpets, The Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Day of Remembrance, The Day of the Awakening Blast, Yom HaDin (Day of Judgment), The Opening of the Books, The Opening of the Gates, Yom HaKeseh (the Hidden Day).

My favorite name is 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 – khoop-paw’). This fits so perfect with our 40 day devotions of Song of Songs.

This is the 5th of the 7 Feasts of the LORD listed in Leviticus 23. Jesus has fulfilled Passover (Jesus is our Passover Lamb), Unleavened Bread (Jesus who knew no sin,  became sin for us), Firsts Fruits (Jesus was first raised from the dead), Pentecost (Acts 2, Church began), but the last 3 have not been fulfilled. They will in the last of the Last Days and Tribulation. These are Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles. All the first 4 were fulfilled on the very day that they had been following since the Wilderness journey from Exodus.

For all of the other 7 Feasts (moedim, fixed appointed times on God’s prophetic calendar), there is a historical significance, such as the First Passover in Egypt. The Feast of Trumpets is the only Feast that has no historical record, all is looking forward.

Matthew 24:36 (NLT) reads, ““However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” This is wordage from the Feast of Trumpets and why this is a 2 day Feast. There had to be 2 witnesses that looked for the first sliver of the moon, and then they would light fires from mountain to mountain, or blow shofars from the mountain tops all over Israel, announcing the new year has begun. We may not know the ‘day or the hour’, but we should not be ignorant of the SEASON.

The greeting for these 2 days is “Shana Tova”, Happy New Year!!! Traditional food is to serve apples dipped in honey, and say “may you have a sweet New Year”.

We see an amazing calendar alignment the April 2019:

  • April 19 is Good Friday and begins Passover (Ex 12;1-14; Lev 23:5; Num. 9:1-14; 28:16; Deut. 16:1-7).
  • April 21, the following Sunday is the 3rd Feast of the Lord (Lev 23:9-14; Num 28:26) and Resurrection Sunday. Some call it Easter.
  • June 9 is the Christian Pentecost Sunday and also the Jewish Pentecost, the 4th Feast of the Lord (Ex 23:16; 34:22; Lev 23:15-21; Num. 28:26-31; Deut 16:9-12).

Acts 12:4, And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

The above verse is from the 1611 King James Bible. Below are other translations of that verse:

  • NKJV – intending to bring him before the people after Passover
  • NLT- Herod intended to bring Peter out for public trial after the Passover.
  • NIV- Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.
  • ESV – intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.
  • AMPC – purposing after the Passover to bring him forth to the people.
  • NASB –  intending after the Passover to bring him out before the people
  • DBY- purposing after the passover to bring him out to the people.
  • MSG- He was planning a public lynching after Passover.
  • TPT – Sixteen soldiers were assigned to guard him until Herod could bring him to public trial, immediately after the Passover celebrations were over.

So you see that the King James Bible is the only translation that reads “Easter”. In fact, this  word is only used in the KJV this one time.

Finis Jennings Dake wrote a  commentary on Acts 12:4 in the Dakes Annotated Reference Bible.

  •  Gr.pascha, the Passover as trans. in 26 other  places (Mt. 26:2-19; Mk. 14:1-16; Lk. 2:41; 22:1-15; Jn. 2:13, 23; 6:4; 11:55; 12:1; 13:1; 18:28,39; 19:14; 1 Cor. 5:7; Heb. 11:28)
  • This is an unfortunate and absurd trans., as Easter was a pagan festival observed long before Christ. It is not a Christian name, but is derived from Ishtar, one of the Babylonian titles of an idol goddess, the Queen of Heaven. The Saxon goddess Eastre is the same as Astarte, the Syrian Venus, called Ashtoreth in the O.T.  It as the worship of this  woman by Israel that was such an abomination to God (I Sam.7:3; I Ki. 11:5,33; 2 Ki.23:13; Jer.7:18; 44:18). Round cakes, imprinted with the sign of the cross were made at this festival, the sign being, in Babylonian mysteries, a sign of life.
  • Easter eggs which play a great part in this day’s celebration were common in all heathen nations. The fable of the egg declares that “an egg of wondrous size fell from heaven into the river Euphrates; the fish rolled it to the bank, where doves settled upon it and hatched it; and out came Astarte, or Ishtar, the goddess of Easter.”
  • Easter, Christmas, Lady Day, Lent, and other Babylonian festival were all borrowed from this religion and were all observed centuries before Christ. None of tem have an relationship to Christ or Christianity.

James 4:17 in the Passion Translation reads “So if you know of an opportunity to do the right thing today, yet you refrain from doing it, you’re guilty of sin.” Because I understand the origin of Easter, I celebrate Passover and Resurrection.

 

When I began to study the Signs in the Heavens back in the early 90’s, Holy Spirit impressed on me to watch for 2017. I believe that this was the year that things shifted into a time of transition. Here are just a few major significant anniversaries:

  • 70 years from 1947 to rebirth of Israel (UN Nov 27, 1947)
  • 50th anniversary (Jubilee) for Jerusalem (6/7/67 – 6/7/2017)
  • 500th Anniversary of Reformation (10/31/17)
  • 70th Anniversary of the Dead Sea Scrolls
  • 100th Anniversary of Fatima prophesy
  • 100th Anniversary of Balfour Declaration
  • 100th Anniversary of Battle of Bethsheba (well of the covenant)

I teach much on the Hebraic Calendar, but He told me to watch the Gregorian calendar that we used for our everyday life. So I thought I would share with you the amazing alignment on both calendars this year on the Hebraic and Gregorian Calendar.

On the Christian observation of the Holy Week with Good Friday, April 19, Passover begins the same day at sundown. I shared about how April 19 is the Day of Infamy in America on our television broadcast last year. https://mbostrom2.com/2018/04/11/april-19-in-history-understanding-cycles. Some of the events of April 19 are as follows:

  • 571 – Birth of Mohammed (20th)
  • 1775 – Start of the Revolutionary War
  • 1889 – Birth of Adolph Hitler
  • 1933 – Franklin D Roosevelt leaves Gold Standard
  • 1961 – Bay of Pigs failure
  • 1985 – ATF Raid on Covenant of the Sword and the  Arm of the Lord
  • 1989- Explosion of USS Iowa-47 sailors were killed
  • 1993- Waco/Branch Davidian raid by FBI/ATF
  • 1995- Oklahoma City Bombing, Murrah Federal Building
  • 1999 – Columbine High School Shooting (April 20)
  • 2010 – Gulf Oil Spill
  • 2013 – Boston Marathon Bombing (16th bombing, 19th brother found in boat in Watertown)
  • 2016 – 13 Days of Preparation April 19-May 1
    • April 19 is the first day of the 13-day satanic ritual day relating to fire- the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the sun god), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (satan/devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day. (April 19-May 1 – 13 days of sacrifice by fire to Baal)

There are so many things that have happened around the season of April 19. In the Bible, this  was a time “when kings go forth to battle” (2 Samuel 11:1). I cover  this every year and have a running timeline chart that covers 5 landscape pages, 10 font. It is  a day to watch and pray so it is VERY interesting that Good Friday and Passover both of April 19.

Resurrection (Easter) Sunday and Feast of First Fruits are both on April 21, 2019.

Christian Pentecost Sunday and Hebrew Pentecost (Shavuot) are both on June 9, 2019.

Feast of Trumpets / Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown Tishri 29 and the Hebrew year will change to 5780. I was in a meeting with a well known prophet this past weekend and he advised us to journal happenings for the next 9 months, which will  take us to Feast of Trumpets.

Hanukkah begins sundown December 22 and is completed sundown December 30, so this year Hanukkah and Christmas are on the same day. Actually Christmas, December 25 will be the lighting of 4 candles so that is the half way point.

I don’t know what this alignment means, but I love  watching what God is up to.

 

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!
