Tonight after the Passover Seder I wanted to see where the Full Moon was located. What I saw almost took my breath away because the Word of God came to me from Psalm 85:10, “Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”

Tonight, Passover Eve, we celebrate not only God delivering His covenant people from Egypt, but Jesus taking the sin for us, so we could become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Jupiter (Tzedek) is the orange planet on the right and means “righteousness”. It seems to be kissed by the full moon. The moon has no light in itself, it only has the reflection of the Sun. The Church has no light in itself, only the reflection of Jesus, the Light of the World. Jesus came to bring mercy, not judgment. Mercy and truth came together almost 2000 years ago, to set the captives free. To God be the glory! Shalom, Shalom

Abba! Abba! Help Us!

The Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot)  is time to rejoice and remember how Almighty God took care of the Israelites in the 40 years in the Wilderness. This is a great time in Israel when the nations come to gather to celebrate this great Feast of the Lord.

HOWEVER- This year it is not so peaceful, not such a joyful time because of the threats of the bullies who threaten their peaceful way of life. Below is a photo of a Jewish father (Abba) taking his 2 young sons to the Western Wall to celebrate Sukkot. Muslim women surrounded the family and began to shout, spit and call them names. Then young Muslim men joined with kicking, spitting and shouting hate filled words. The little boy cries out Abba Abba! But the father could do nothing. Not only that, not one person helped them. No believers, no shop owners, no Jews, no police. The video is online to view.

Israel boys threated inOld City on Sukkot 2015Now the little nation is being bullied and the world is silent. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a stunning address to the United Nations on their silence, and apathy as nations surround them determining to wipe them out. Below is the size of Israel in comparison to surrounding nations that are filled with hate. Map_of_Middle_EastBelieve me when I say, they are crying Abba Abba to Father God, who is a covenant making God and a covenant keeping God. Do I feel sorry for Israel? No! I am standing with Israel and with the promises God made and is keeping with Israel- Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! I do feel sorry for those who come against Israel- they are coming against the God of the Universe! And He always wins.

Isaiah 62:1, For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns. (6) I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, (7) And give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

Sunday night at 9:44pm Central Standard Time we will view the 4th Blood Moon of the Four Blood Moons of 2014-2015. I went out into my back yard tonight, looked southeast and shot a few views with my SkyView App.

Moon near Aquarius 9.26.15Moon hear Pisces 9.26.15

 

 

 

 

In both shots the moon is black and white. The light blue planet below Pisces (fish) is Uranus and the bright blue planet in Aquarius is Neptune. Neither of these 2 planets are the original 7 planets, which made up the heavenly menorah on Creation.

Tomorrow night the Blood Moon will be found in Pisces – the Fishes. The sign of Pisces has always been interpreted as the nation of Israel. Why? Maybe because Abraham was a stranger here on earth, knowing there was a heavenly city, whose builder and maker was God. (Hebrews 11:10)

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.

E. W. Bullinger comments on this : Certainly when the sun is in Pisces all the constellations which are considered noxious, are seen above the horizon. What is true in astronomical observation is true also in historical fact. When God’s favor is shown to Israel, ‘the Jew’s enemy’ puts forth his malignant powers. When they increased and multiplied in Egypt, he endeavored to compass the destruction of the nation by destroying the male children; but their great Deliverer remembered His covenant, defeated the designs of the enemy, and brought the counsel of the heathen to nought. So it was in Persia; and so it will be yet be again when the hour of Israel’s final deliverance has come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tonight as the sun goes down, the 25 hour fast of Yom Kippur begins.

Leviticus 23:27, ““Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. (32) “It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.”

This is the most serious day on the Jewish Calendar. God wanted His chosen people to be holy (kadosh – set apart, sanctified), separated from sin and the heathen influences of the world.

Yom Kippur, also known as  Yom Ha kippurim (which means the day of covering or concealing), the Day of  Atonement, The Fast, The Great Fast, Day of the Covering, Face to Face (my favorite name); Day of Forgiveness, Day of Grace, or the Day of Judgment.

But this year is more serious- It is a Jubilee Year. It is said to be the 40th Jubilee year since Christ’s death,  70th  Jubilee year since Joshua brought the nation of Israel into their Promised Land and the 120th Jubilee year in history.

Leviticus 25:10, “And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.

The Ten Days of Awe are finished. The books are sealed.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

Something on the Blood Moon I had not considered until it read it in JewsNews “Big Things Coming in 5776” –  the Muslim connection to the Blood Moon Tetrads!

full-moon-over-dcFrom the article: “The answer is, a tetrad lunar eclipse, if it does signify anything, has nothing to do with Jews. The moon is Islam. It has to do with Muslims. And 1493 was indeed a big year for Islam. It was the year they lost Europe. So was 1949, the year the Muslims lost the war against Israel. They were still fighting in 1948. The armistice and defeat was in 1949. If the tetrad lunar eclipses signal something about Jews, it would have been 1948, but 1949 was the defeat of Islam in Israel, not the founding of the State. In 1967 they lost Jerusalem and it happened in 6 days, so that one was on the dot.”

WOW! I had never seen that connection!

I did blog the Islam View of the Blood Moon at https://mbostrom2.com/2011/06/10/islam-view-of-a-lunar-eclipse.

No matter what – the heavens are declaring the glory of God! A week from tonight we will witness the 4th of the final back-to-back Blood Moons on Passover and Sukkot and we will never in our lifetime view this heavenly appearance of 4 Blood Moons on the Feasts of the Lord.

Next Sunday night we will be in our lawn, looking to heaven, witnessing the Super Blood Moon as the Feast of Tabernacles begins. In the south Texas area, the totality will be 9:44pm, September 27. It should stay the beautiful blood red color for almost an hour. Enjoy!

This morning I awoke and I heard “Just and true are your ways, O Lord”, from the Song of Moses in Revelation 15:3. We have been doing out part, crying out to God for our nation and repenting for the many great sins. We have come before a Holy Judge, on behalf of ourselves and on behalf of the innocent.

We are in the time in history that Moses was on the mountain for the second 40 days, seeking forgiveness for the entire nation of Israel because of the sin of the Golden Calf. In history, the day that he came down with the judgment of mercy was September 23, The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

This morning on a prayer call I had a vision of an hour glass, with time running out. Tonight ends the 7 year land cycle of Leviticus 25 and the last day of the Shemitah Cycle is today. Tomorrow begins the “Ten Days of Awe”, where books in heaven are opened for the ‘just, the unjust and those in-between’. I feel what the Spirit of the Lord is showing me is that there is judgment upon national leaders and nations right now and there is still time for them to humble themselves and turn to the Lord.

Time-is-running-out-HourglassThe books will be closed, judgement will be set at the end of the 10 days of Awe, as Yom Kippur begins, The Day of Atonement. In history, this is the day that Moses came down the mountain with the judgment of mercy for the nation of Israel. This year, the Jubilee Year will be announced on Yom Kippur. We are in very serious times, very dangerous times. Seek the Lord, not only for yourselves, but for the nations, for the leaders.

Tonight begins the partial Solar Eclipse. This will be over the southern part of the earth so most of us will not see it except by internet. I saw the short clip of what it will look like on http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2015-september-13. It looks like a bowl. May this not be filled with the judgment of God upon the nations as they prepare to take the Promised Land at the United Nations, Selah.

Revelation 15:3, “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.”

We are currently in the ‘last days’ before Elul 29, which begins Saturday September 12 at sundown and ends Sunday September 13th at sundown. During the Shemitah Year, Elul 29 is call the “Day of the Lord’s Release according to Deuteronomy 15:1-6, “At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lends ought unto his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’S release. This was meant to be a blessing for those who follow God and deal with righteousness and justice, but it would turn into a judgment for those who are called of God and turned against His ways.

God ALWAYS gives us signs in the Heavens! ALWAYS! For this reason, I am reposting the signs in the heavens of the ‘first year’ of the Seven year cycle of land following the Day of the Lord’s Release 9/29/2008.

September 29, 2008 was the last day of the Shemitah Cycle (Leviticus 25) and was most remembered for the 777 point drop in the stock market on the Day of the Lord’s Release (Deuteronomy 15:1-3). As the final bell rang on Wall Street, Israel began Rosh HaShanah. This is also known as the Feast of Trumpets, the fifth  of the seven ‘fixed appointed times of the LORD (Leviticus 23:24). At that time, the new set of seven year cycle of the land began. At this writing we are currently in the 7th year of the cycle, known as the Shemitah Year, the year the land enjoys her Sabbath rest. So many have reported the current signs in the heavens, but I felt the need to review my blog of 6/1/11, ‘2009 – When the Heavenly Birth Pains Began’. I hope you enjoy my review.

Note: 4 times in Mark 13 Jesus told us to ‘watch’ as He told them what would happen in the last days. This is my report as a ‘watcher’.

I have studied the heavenly signs of the Second Coming of the Lord since early 1990s when I read Marilyn Hickey’s book called Signs in the Heavens. As a Christian, I thought watching and studying the heavens (astronomy)  was full of witchcraft because of those who looked at the constellations to decide how to live their lives (astrology). Once I read Hickey’s book, I came into a new understanding of why God created the “fixed stars”, which we know as Constellations.

I studied, read, and researched everything the Bible had to say about the heavens.  I clipped out every heavenly occurrence when there was an important happening in Israel, but was not released to teach it. In 2009, God finally released me to teach what I had stored up and I have been teaching it ever since. By the time I began sharing and teaching, I had several great books on Biblical astronomy and a full box of research.

A pregnant woman understands signs of the birth being near, especially waiting for the water to break and the birth pains to begin. As we near the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we are looking for the signs of His coming. Jesus said there would be signs in the heavens before He returned.

HERE ARE SOME UNUSUAL HEAVENLY OCCURRENCES OF 2009

February 24, 2009, El Cajon, CA. CBS News Channel 8, February 24, 2009. El Cajon, CA. http://www.cbs8.com/Global/story.asp?s=9898524 The 3 letters in Arabic are 666. There was no natural explanation for the red Arabic letters in the sky and they were reported by CBS news.

February 25, 2009, Cosmic Eye of God (Helix Nebula)  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/space/4805889/Eye-of-God-pictured-in-space.html

April 7-8, 2009, Passover

  • April 8, 2009- Crown of Thorns http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,513038,00.html
  • April 8, 2009- Blessing of the Sun, Birchat HaChama- Rabbis call this the Third Redemption. Three times in recorded history the Sun has lined up as in the day of Creation (4th day, Genesis 1:14) and Passover. The first time was the first Passover  recorded in Exodus, the second time was when Mordecai and Esther were fasting for the saving of their nation and the last time was in Passover 2009. The first 2 times the nation was saved from destruction by an enemy that wanted to destroy them. In Israel it was a very encouraging sign that God was going to save them from destruction one more time. They base this on Hosea 6:1-2.  http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/130732

June 2, 2009- New Clouds Found and were  named Asperatus clouds. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1189877/The-cloud-Meteorologists-campaign-classify-unique-Asperatus-clouds-seen-world.html. Asperatus means ‘rough‘ and they were said to look ‘mean’. Evangelist Del Mar Coward of Vision Ministries had a vision of these clouds the beginning of 2009 while in prayer. www.thevisionministry.org. When I showed him the article, he said they were the exact clouds God showed him. He said that he had never seen anything so wicked and evil. Since that time, God has shown him that it was a demonic force released upon the earth. God has led him to an understanding of that vision from Daniel 10, to start in the 1st verse and he has received much revelation since then on principalities and power released.

July 21, 2009, Planet Jupiter (King planet representing Israel & Messiah) was hit by a heavenly object 15 years to the date that Shoemaker Levi Comet bombarded Jupiter. History records that when Jupiter is hit from a heavenly object, something will happen to the country and people of Israel. 15 years ago the ‘land for peace’ deal was taking place in Oslo, Norway.

July 22, 2009 , Total Solar Eclipse http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2009/TSE2009.html This was the 2nd of 3 years in a row on the Hebrew day of Av 1 (August 1, 2008 & July 11, 2010) and was the longest in the 21st Century and it was called a monster’ solar eclipse. It began in India, crossed through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, China, Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and curved through the Pacific Ocean. All the countries under the Solar Eclipse are in the 1040 Window.

December 2, 2009, Superbright Supernova,  first of its kind-  believed to be a star that first populated the universe. A supernova is a star that suddenly increases greatly in brightness because of a catastrophic explosion that ejects most of its mass. 

December 8-14, 2009, Geminid Meteor Showers during  the Jewish festival Hanukkah, peaked December 13 with 130 ‘shooting stars’ per hour. The normal evening would see approximately 10 per hour.

December 31, 2009, Blue Moon. The moon is not really blue unless there is a volcano or something that would put dust into the atmosphere. A Blue moon means the 2nd full moon in one month, which is very rare.

Since 2009 the heavenlies have been very interesting. I suggest you get a good Hebrew Calendar for Christians and record whenever there is something unusual happening in the heavens.

“Keep looking up, our redemption is drawing nigh”
