Archive for the ‘Passover’ Category

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.

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”

Eclipse Moon April 4 2015 2This photo was taken with SkyView App on my iPhone. We had a very cloudy sky so I watched the viewing online with Time.com.

The moon eclipsed closest to Porrima (aka Gamma Virginis). This is a binary star, meaning it consists of 2 stars that orbit together appear as one. I cannot find the Hebrew name for this star.

Virgo StarsWhen the eclipse reached totality, I joined believers around the world to pray for Israel, for the peace of Jerusalem according to Psalm 122:6 and Isaiah 62.  IsraelBreakingNews.com, April 2nd, carried a warning from an Israeli Rabbi regarding this blood moon and the numeric 4.

“A mystic rabbi living in southern Israel is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches. Rabbi Amram Vaknin, who similarly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, and Operations Pillar of Defense (2012) and Protective Edge (2014), warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time. One of Rabbi Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the sage, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States.” Read more at http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/35128/shocking-passover-blood-moon-predictions-by-israeli-rabbi-jewish-world/#XYyDWk3TfuIFzjdd.99

I was reading in E.W. Bullinger’s book Witness of the Stars this morning regarding the biblical meaning of the Constellation Virgo. On the bottom of page 33 Bullinger wrote “In the Zodiac in the Temple of Denderah, in Egypt, about 2000 B.C. (now in Paris), she (Virgo) is likewise represented with a branch in her hand, but ignorantly explained by a false religion to represent Isis!

ISIS? Watch and pray my friends. We are living in very exciting times.

It is not for us to speculate, Jesus never told us to speculate. Rather, He told us in Mark 13 “4 times” to “Watch”. The Greek word for watch is ‘agrypneō’, and means ‘to be sleepless, keep awake, watch’. This word is only found 4 times in the Bible and all 4 times are in this passage as Jesus commands us about the day or the hour of His Second Coming.

Shabbat Shalom my friends. Keep looking up! His redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28)

 

EclipsedMoon 4.4.15The 3rd Blood Moon of the 4 Blood Moons of this current Tetrad will reach fullness at 5am Pacific time and 7am Central time. I am in the Texas area so I will get up at 5am to watch the beginning of this eclipse before it goes out of our view. For the remainder I will have to watch online.

This eclipse is so full of the number 4! (I got most of the information from BreakingIsraelNews.com which had a great article from Mark Biltz and Bob O’Dell, posted March 31st.)

  • 4th day of Creation, Genesis 1:14, And God said, ‘Let there be lights (light holders)  in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons (moedim- fixed appointed times), and for days, and years.’  (Ps 104:19, He made the moon to mark the seasons)
  • 4th month- April
  • 4th day – April 4th (Passover – Nisan 14 on the Hebraic calender)
  • Eclipse will have totality 4 minutes and 44 seconds
  • 4th shortest of all eclipses in 4,000 years.
  • 4 Cups of Passover from Exodus 6:6-8: (1) I shall take you out of Egypt (2) I shall rescue you from Egyptian slavery (3) I shall redeem you with My power (4) I shall bring you as My people
  • 4th Commandment, “Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy”. This Passover and Blood Moon fall on the Sabbath Day.
  • The 4th letter of the Hebrew Aleph Bet is Dalet and represents the #4. The pictograph of Dalet is a Door. During the first Passover, the Hebrew fathers applied the blood of the lamb to the doorposts of their house as instructed to Moses by God. The blood would protect the household from the death angel and the last plague, the death of the first born.
  • Below are some meanings of the number 4 in Scripture (E.W.Bullinger, Numbers in Scripture)
    • Number of material completeness finish on the 4th day of Creation, world number, ‘city’ number
    • Regions of the earth- north, south, east, west
    • Divisions of the day- morning, noon, evening, midnight
    • Four Seasons- Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
    • Four lunar (moon) phases
    • Four great elements- earth, air, fire, water
    • Division- in Eden, the river parted into 4 streams
    • Four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

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.

In the beginning of  2009, two ministers who I highly respect received the following words from the Lord:

  • John Kilpatrick (www.johnkilpatrick.org) received a word for 2009, RESURRECTION, with each letter corresponding with what would happen that year. The ‘S’ stood for Signs in the Heavens.
  • Hank Kunneman (www.ovm.org)  wrote regarding 2009: Signs in the Heavens and Wonders on the Earth. Jesus said the powers of heaven will be shaken in Luke 21:26, we have seen shakings upon the earth but have we never seen the powers of heaven shaking as we are going to. Watch for incredible and very unusual signs in the heavens. New discoveries in science and astronomy; signs in the sun that will cause great discussion. Things will be written in the newspapers and on the media as they won’t be able to explain the unusual signs in the heavens, as God uses this to bring glory and honor to Jesus Christ while others try to explain it away.

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. We are in interesting times. As always, I will do my best to keep my findings updated on this blog.  My teaching manual and CDs are available for purchase on our Resource link on our web site, www.unitedinhispurpose.org . “Keep looking up, our redemption is drawing nigh”

The Astronomy magazine for April 14 has an amazing article for the April 15 Blood Moon on Passover.April 2014: While Mars shines brighter than at any time since 2007 and Jupiter blazes in the west after sunset, North American observers won’t want to miss the total eclipse of the Moon on April 14/15″

The article includes where the moon will eclipse at totality at 3am CST. I would like to share what this setting means according to Biblical astronomy, since God created the sun, moon and stars for ‘signs and seasons’. (Genesis 1:14)

Looking southwest, the moon will eclipse very very close the brightest star in Virgo called Spica.

  • Virgo is Latin, but Hebrew name is Bethulah, the virgin.
  • Spica in Latin, but in Hebrew it is called Tsemech, which is used exclusively for the Messiah. E.W. Bullinger writes in his classic “The Witness of the Stars”, ‘There are twenty Hebrew words translated “Branch,” but only one of them (Tsemech) is used exclusively of the Messiah, and this word only four times (Jer 33:15 being only a repetition of Jer 23:5). Each of these further connects Him with one special account of Him, given in the Gospels.’
  • The Moon will eclipse on Passover, the date that Christ our Passover Lamb was sacrificed for us (1 Corinthians 5:7b)

To the left of the Blood moon will be the ringed planet Saturn

  • Saturn which is a beautiful gas planet, no space ship will ever land on this magnificent ‘wandering star
  • The Hebrew name for Saturn is Shabbtai, meaning ‘rest’ and represents the “Lord of the Sabbath’

To the upper right of the Blood moon will be the red planet Mars

  • Mars has been known as the planet of war because it has taken the name of the Roman god of war
  • This planet in Hebrew is called Ma’adim, meaning ‘the Adam‘, “the Son of Man
  • Mars will be the brightest and largest at this time and will not be this size again until 2016

I believe in the days ahead those He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1). Jesus, our Passover Lamb, has given us rest. He is and will ever be the “Lord of the Sabbath’ rest.

But for the world there will be great unrest. Unrest, wars, rumors of war are on the news every night. But those who seek the presence of God will experience supernatural provisions and rest much as the Israelite children in the land of Goshen, as recorded for us as examples in Exodus.

Keep watching and looking up! But never worship the creation, on the Creator!

The first total lunar eclipse since December 2011 will take place April 14, 2014 with the best viewing over North America. It will begin at 1:58am EDT, peak at 3:06 to 4:25am and wrap up at 5:33am.

I remember the December 2011 lunar eclipse because I watched the entire event from our patio, bundled up in my husband’s sleeping bag with hot tea in one hand and binoculars in the other. I was so excited I went the entire night without sleep. I would frequently go into the house and email my friend who was also watching the eclipse.

A few interesting things about the Lunar Eclipse:

  • It begins the 4 Blood Moon Tetrad on Passover and Tabernacles 2 years in a row
  • First total lunar eclipse since December 2011
  • Since it will be centered over North America, I wonder what will be happening with our government to pressure Israel. –   “As recorded by Bill Koenig (Watch.org) September 3, 2008- “A Blood-Red Moon Rises over North America, Olmert Offers Temple Mount Sovereignty to the Palestinians, Olmert and Abbas Meet on Israel’s Land and Jerusalem, Bush Says Iran’s Actions Could Lead to a Shadow of a Nuclear Holocaust, and Bush Arrives in New Orleans for his 15th Post-Katrina Visit. These were the news headlines on the day of a total lunar eclipse that produced a “blood-red” moon, the second one in seven years with a connection to the Temple Mount.  A total lunar eclipse/”blood-red” moon occurred on July 16, 2000, while U.S. President Bill Clinton, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinians President Yassar Arafat were at the Middle East Summit in Camp David. The sticking point that caused the summit to fall had to do with who would have sovereignty over the Temple Mount- the Israelis or the Palestinian Arabs.”

The next Lunar Eclipse will be on the first day of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014 and will be a partial Eclipse.  This also will be over North America! It will begin at 5:14am EDT with totality at 7:24am.

Two weeks later will be the only Solar Eclipse of the year and will be a partial, also over North America on October 23.  It will be seem at mid afternoon with 81% of the Sun is expected to be hidden.

The information above came from Astronomy Magazine, Sky Guide 2014, November 22, 2o13 issue. I have found this magazine to be a good accurate source. This should be an interesting year. I plan to blog often because there is much to view this year, especially since the Signs in the Heavens will be following God’s “fixed appointed times”, the Feasts of the Lord.

Keep looking up!
