This concludes the series of events of April 19 in History. My hope is that you will cover Israel with much prayer April 19 as they celebrate their 70th Anniversary of fulfillment of the promise of God, “Will a nation be born in a day?” (Isaiah 66:8)

The first of 3 programs of Cycles of April 19 was to help you understand cycles in history, and how “history merely repeats itself”.  This will be part 1 of the actual events in history of April 19 and dates around it. I have found in research that April 19-May 1st is a 13-day time period that demands child sacrifice by fire all the way back to  the time of Baal worship. In our time, it has changed to the time of ‘gun fire’, fire and terror.

Israel became a nation again on Iyar 5 on their calendar. On the Gregorian calendar that fell on May 14, 1948. That year was a leap year on the Hebrew calendar so there was 13 months that year, so this year the 70th Anniversary will fall on April 20. Since that day is a Friday and begins the Shabbat at nightfall, the celebration in Israel will be on April 19.

One thing that we need to understand in these days is that “history merely repeats itself”  (Ecclesiastes 1:9 NLT) The Amplified Bible reads, “That which has been is that which will be [again], and that which has been done is that which will be done again.

I have followed Bill Koenig of http://www.watch.org for years about the cycles of April 19 in History. I have recorded three programs regarding this event of 2018. This first program I will help you to understand cycles. Weathermen and Wall Street stockbrokers understand how cycles affect us, but the Church as a whole has been

 

This was the third Super Moon of the Triad. They were back-to-back starting December 2/3, 2017, January 1,  2018 and January 31, 2018. This was highly unusual and caused many of us to “Wake Up” and  “Look Up!” My husband and I viewed this heavenly appearance from our front yard. Below is a photo from my iPhone Sky View app. You will see the moon is HUUUGE and it is in the claws of Cancer, the Crab. We sat in our car with the seat warmers on because it was a beautiful 45 degrees her on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The sight was beautiful but we never had a view of the Blood red color of the Eclipsed Moon.

Cancer the Crab according to E.W. Bullinger’s  classic book, The Witness of the Stars, tells the story of “Messiah’s redeemed possession held fast“. This sign connects with the Tribe of Issachar, whose tribe is known for an “understanding of the times”. I Chronicles 12:32, “From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.” (NLT)

Below is the second photo of the night I took at 6am CST. It is Libra, the Scales. Bullinger wrote this represents “The Redeemer’s atoning work, or the price deficient balanced by the price which covers.” The Hebrew name is Mozanaim, “the scales, weighing” (Daniel 5:27) Balanced in Libra’s weights is Jupiter, which in Hebrew is Tzedek, and means ‘righteousness‘. This is the King planet, representing King David and Israel. Below Libra is the planet Mars. In Hebrew it is Ma’Adim,  “the red one” and historically has been known as the Planet of War by the Romans and Greeks because it was named after their god of war.

Jan 31 2018 The Scales Jupiter and Mars

What is the full significance of these heavenly appearances? Libra with Jupiter and Mars is not as unusual as the Super Moon Triad, but still amazing to see the heaven’s declare the glory of the Lord. Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made.” (God’s Word Translation)

As we get closer to a prophetic happening, the signs in the heavens will be bigger and closer together, just as when we travel by auto to a destination.

The third moon of the Triad of Super Moons has caused a world-wide stir to look up into the heavens. I think the greatest significance is how it fell on the Hebrew New Year of the Trees, Tu B’Shevat or the 15th of the month of Shevat. This new year can be found in Leviticus 19:23-25, ” When you come to the land and you plant any tree, you shall treat its fruit as forbidden; for three years it will be forbidden and not eaten. In the fourth year, all of its fruit shall be sanctified to praise the L-RD. In the fifth year, you may eat its fruit.

Israel is symbolically referred to as the fig tree, Hosea 9:12, Jeremiah 24:3-10; 29:16-17. In Matthew 24:32-34 and Luke 21:29-32, we see Jesus pointing to signs in the fig tree (Israel) and the other trees (prophetic last days nations).

Jesus told us several times to Watch and Pray, but never does He tell us to speculate. I will continue to watch the signs in the heavens and praise the Creator who planned the greatest story in the Universe, named each star and set each course.
