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

 

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 Tishri 10 (this year 9/30/17), which became known as The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

Tomorrow at sundown 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.  We are in very serious times, very dangerous times. Seek the Lord, not only for yourselves, but for the nations, for the leaders.

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.”

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.”

The 2nd Blood Moon of this Blood Moon Tetrad over the Feast Days of the Lord on Passover and Tabernacles of 2014 will be seen at 6:25am EDT and end at 7:24 EDT according to NASA. This will be the last total lunar eclipse of 2014.  (5:25-6:24 CST)

This siting will be VERY RARE, since some areas will be able to see the full eclipse of the Moon as the Sun rises. This is called a “senenelion“, meaning the sun and eclipsed moon can be seen at the same time in some areas. According to geometry, this cannot happen. Well, we are living in very unusual times.

Keep looking up! I am praying for clear skies and plan to watch it from the Gulf of Mexico.
