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.

 

Tuesday February 5 at sundown begins the 12th month on the Hebrew calendar, which is the month of Adar. But this month is different because it is a Leap Year and they will have 2 months of Adar, the first being Adar A (Adar 1) and the second being called Adar B (Adar 2).

It is called a Pregnant year because it has 13 months instead of 12. What is interesting about the Hebrew year 5779 is that the number 9 in Hebrew is a pictograph of a WOMB or a serpent. I find it amazing that this pregnant year is called a year of birthing by several prophets.

The months are counted in the Spring of the year because God told Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:2, ““This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” Six months later the number of the year changes so they actually have 2 New Years – one that counts the months and one that counts the years. (Actually have 4 New Years on the Hebrew calendar)

The Hebrew calendar is Lunar and Solar so it has an extra month put in 7 times in 19 years. The Gregorian calendar is Solar so it adds 1 day extra every 4 years.

What is interesting is the Presidential elections align with the leap year on the Gregorian calendar.

Since President Clinton won the election there has been a leap year on BOTH Hebrew and Gregorian calendars the election that a New President is voted into office.

  • 1992- Bill Clinton
  • 2000 – George W Bush
  • 2008 – Barak Obama
  • 2016 – Donald Trump
  • 2020 – Presidential election leap year on only the Gregorian calendar
  • 2024 – Presidential election leap year on both Hebrew and Gregorian calendars

President Trump has been prophesied to win re-election. Is this a sign? Watch and Pray.

 

Sunday night, January 20 over North and South America there will be a full moon, that is also a Super Moon, that is also a Wolf Moon.  This Part 1 will deal with the specifics of the eclipse. Part 2 will deal with the significance of it being over the United States in the specific time period of chaos we are experiencing.

The partial eclipse begins at 10:34 p.m. CST, total eclipse begins at 10:41 p.m. CST, totality ends at 11:44 a.m. CST, partial eclipse ends at 12:51 a.m. CST. There will be totality for 62 minutes. Below are some of the very unusual things about this Total Lunar Eclipse.

  • The last Super Blood Moon for 18 years.
  • Wolf Moon – this is a Native Indian term for the first full moon of the year (January) when it is frozen in the north and the wolves howl out of hunger.
    • Last year, January 1, 2018 was a Super Wolf Moon
    • It was interesting that the networks in the United States were all talking about Michael Wolff’s new book that was being released, ‘Fire and Fury’.
    • The interesting thing about wolves is they travel in pack, eat flesh, brutal, fierce and tear their prey to pieces – this is exactly the intention of this book.
    • Coincidence? There is no Hebrew word for coincidence.
  • Super Moon – perigee, closest to the earth. This will come within 90% of its closest approach to the Earth
    • 2017-2018 saw 3 super moons in 60 days- VERY UNUSUAL
    • Dec 2-3, 2017, Super Moon
    • Jan 1, 2018, Super Wolf Moon
    • Jan 31, 2018, Super Blue Blood Moon (named blue because of 2 full moons in one month.
  • This year there will be 3 Super Moons in a row
    • January 20, 2019 – Super Blood Wolf Moon
    • February 19, 2019
    • March 21, 2019 – Feast of Purim
  • We get two to five supermoons every year but not normally 3 in a row. The gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years. You can also plan on around one to five super blood moons each decade, but they only fall in January three times this century with the 3rd and final being Jan. 31, 2037.
  • Total Lunar Eclipse – the only one of 2019
  • First total Eclipse seen over both North and South America in 17 years
    • Next will be May 26, 2021
  • The moon will eclipse in the constellation The Crab – Cancer
    • In Biblical Astronomy this constellation reveals “Messiah’s Redeemed Possessions Held Fast.”
    • The position of the moon will be in the center of the constellation by a group of 45 stars that make it look like 1 huge star. That is all the “Beehive”
    • Last year’s Super Blue Blood Moon January 31, 2018 the moon was positioned in Cancer’s claws
  • Both Super Blood Moons of January 31, 2018 and January 20, 2019 fall on the Hebrew New Year of the Trees, Tu B’Shevat
    • Leviticus 19:23-25; 26:3-4
    • Luke 21:29, Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (nations of prophecy)
    • Watch the prophetic nations lining up, especially watch Syria and Damascus (Is 17:1)
    • This is NO COINCIDENCE – this is a major sign!

Tomorrow I will bring Part 2 and I will ask this question, “What is the Hebrew word for coincidence?” To which the reply is, there is none.

Hanukkah 2018

Ken and I share on the History of the Festival of Hanukkah on this episode of our TV broadcast. We share the history Hanukkah, how Jesus celebrated it in John 10:22 and how we personally love to share the light of Jesus in our home as we light the 9 branched Hanukkiah each evening. Hanukkah began last night at sundown (Dec 2, 2018) and ends at sundown Dec 10, 2018. Each year it is on Kislev 25 on the Hebrew Calendar, but falls on a different date each year on the Gregorian calendar that is mainly used to follow the daily events in our life.

The Hebrew Month of Elul began Sunday night at sundown. This begins the 40-day season of Teshuvah, the month of repentance or ‘returning’ back to God. This is the 40 day period when Moses went back up Mt Sinai the 2nd time to seek the forgiveness for the Sin of the Golden Calf.  The 40 days end with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, when Moses came down and announced they are forgiven!

This is also the time when Jesus was led of the Spirit into the Wilderness to be tempted by the devil for 40 days. Time to Align with Prophetic Timing.

The Key to this season is PREPARATION for the Fall Feasts! We prayer for years for a wedding, we prepare all month for a special birthday or gathering. Stores start playing Christmas music in July! But is the a special time to prepare on God’s calendar? A time to prepare to meet our Lord!

The longest totality of a Blood Moon in this Century was not seen in the United States, but the SkyView App on my iphone made it possible to find out what constellation this 1 hour and 43 minutes of totality would occur. You can see below the moon (app does not pick up the blood color) and Mars on the Constellation Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Sea Goat, “The goat of atonement slain for the Redeemed.” This begins the 2nd book of the 3 books in heaven that tell the story of Jesus. The first book was “The Redeemer, His coming and sufferings”, the 3rd book tells about “His Second Coming, and the glory that shall follow”. This 2nd book and its chapters (constellations) tell about the benefits to the Redeemed, the Church”.

The Goat part of Capricorn tells of the Atoning Sacrifice and coming out of the Sacrifice is the Fish, representing the Redeemed.  The Hebrew name for this constellation is Gedi, ‘the kid or cut off’.

Mars makes the entire heavenly sign very interesting. I have been reading that this sign with Mars being as big as the Moon has not happened for 35000 years.

And it happened on the Hebrew Day of LOVE? In history, Mars would be a sign of war coming to earth. In history, a Blood Moon over Israel was a bad omen for Israel. But we are in very unusual times, where everything changes. God is sending HUGE signs in the heavens, and I think there will be very trying times for Israel with Hezbollah in the North, Syria in the North West and Hamas on the South East. I believe God will be glorified in what He plans to do to protect His covenant land and covenant people.

Blood Moon and Mars on Capricorn July 27 2018

Friday, July 27 will give be filled with excitement of the longest of total lunar eclipse of the Century, with the totality lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. The entire eclipse from beginning to end will be around 4 hours. It is scheduled for 8:30pm UTC, so where I am in Central Standard time will be around 3:30pm. I will have to watch it online since the totality will be seen in Israel and the nations of prophecy. This will be the last total lunar eclipse in 2018. If you remember the first Blood Moon of 2018 was a Super Blue Blood Moon January 31, which happened to be the New Year of the Trees on the Hebraic calendar. Jesus told us to watch the fig tree (Israel) [Matthew 24:32] and the other trees (nations of prophecy) [Luke 21:29].

But the interesting thing is when it falls on the Hebraic calendar.

The Mishnah tells us that: “No days were as festive for Israel as the 15th of Av and Yom Kippur.”  Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) symbolizes God’s forgiveness for the Golden Calf and Tu B’Av symbolizes God’s forgiveness for the unbelief of the 10 spies culminating the spread of fear and unbelief that kept the nation of Israel from entering into the Promised Land for 40 years.

The 9th of the Hebrew month of Av is the lowest point in month and the 15th of Av is the highest. Both have historical meanings that carry through to this day. This day has become known as the “Jewish Valentine’s Day“, when unmarried women would become betrothed.

There are multiple negative historical events that have followed the cycle on Tisha B’ Av (9th of Av) which began with the nation of Israel choosing to follow the negative report of 10 of the 12 spies coming out of the Promised Land. There are five major historical events associated with Tu B’ Av (15th of Av).

  1. End of the Wilderness deaths- 40 years following God’s decree that those who were 20 years of age and above ended. History teaches that each year on the 9th of Av all those who had been 20 or above would dig graves and lay in those graves on that day. The next morning those who were still alive would get out of the grave and know they had at least another year of life in the Wilderness. On the 40th year no one died. They thought they had the date wrong so they kept changing the date and by Tu B’Av they realized all was forgiven and they could not enter the Promised Land under Joshua’s leadership.
  2. This was first precedent of equal rights for women in the Bible. The daughters of  Manesseh’s lineage dared to believe God for a new thing, land given to women. (Numbers 27:1-11 & Numbers 36) Their father Zelophehad died in the wilderness, but not because of his sins- his daughters made sure it was on the record that he did not side with Korah. These women were pushers, not quitters, “Lord I want the blessing! I want it in my body, I want it in my spirit, I want it financially, I want to be blessed in my ministry, I want it for my family, I want my blessing!”  All 5 daughters manifest a balance between the spirit of confrontation and a spirit of cooperation.
  3. Benjamin’s Tribe allowed to continue– Following the consequences of the sins of the perverted men from Tribe of Benjamin as recorded in Judges 19-21, only 600 males from the Tribe of Benjamin remained. The other 11 Tribes had taken an oath not to allow marriage from their tribe and now there was great mourning realizing Benjamin’s tribe would cease. On the 9th of Av they allowed the 600 males who were left were allowed to snatch virgins during an annual dance, so that the vow would not be violated and the tribe of Benjamin would continue.
  4. Wood for the 2nd Temple – Following the restoration of the Second Temple, wood was needed for the Temple altar and none was available near Jerusalem. Brave men were sent out to bring satisfactory wood before winter set in and the dead line to have the wood in the Temple was Tu B’ Av.
  5. Burials allowed during Bar Kochba Revolt, 132 AD– The Hebrew custom for burial was to bury the same day as the death so the bodies could not begin to decompose.   In 135 AD, the army besieged Bethar and on  the 9th of Av, the Jewish fast day commemorating the destruction of the first  and second Holy Temples, the walls of Bethar fell. After a fierce battle,  every Jew in Bethar was killed. Six days passed before the Romans allowed the  Jews to bury their dead.  This was a double miracle, in that, first, the Romans finally gave permission for the burial, and, second, in spite of the long period of time that had elapsed, the bodies had not decomposed. The permission was granted on Tu B’Av.

LET THE DANCING BEGIN!!!

ENJOY THE VIEW!
