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

 

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!

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.

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

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”
