July 12, 2006 is a date I will not forget. Dr Hilton Sutton was speaking at a morning session of the World Ministry Fellowship convocation and someone came in and said we needed to pray for Israel, they just went to war with Lebanon. That war with Lebanon lasted 34 days.

I went up to my room after prayer and checked the Hebraic calendar. It was Tammuz 17, the anniversary of the sin of the Golden Calf in the Wilderness. What is the Hebrew word for coincidence? There is none! I knew the war beginning on the first day of the dreaded 21 day period of The Dire Straits was significant and would set up a chain of events that would escalate into the Last Days. The Lebanon  was with the terrorist organization Hezbollah. The current Gaza barrage of rockets is from Hamas. Different names, but both want to wipe Israel off the map.

Saturn is one of the original 7 planets that make up the Heavenly Menorah of Creation. Planets are also known as ‘wandering stars’.

Historian Josephus records “God afforded them (Adam, Seth, Enoch) a longer time on account of thier virtue, and the good use they made of it in astronomical and geometric discoveries, which would not be afforded the time of foretelling [periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for the great year is completed in that interval.”  (Antiqities 1.3.9) It has been taught through the ages that the 7 planets were in perfect alignment on the 4th day of Creation.

Genesis 1:14-16 tells us, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. [He made] the stars also.”

Stars come in two categories: (1) Fixed – Constellations (2) Wandering – Planets, Comets, Meteors

Saturn is the Star of this week! Saturn’s name in Hebrew is Shabbtai and means ‘rest’.  All the planets have names that represent the Messiah, Saturn representing “Lord of the Sabbath”. Saturn is the most beautiful planet, beautiful colored with over 1000 rings made of dust and ice surrounding her beauty. NASA will never be able to land on this beautiful planet because it is made up of gas, a spaceship would go right through it.

This week Saturn has been in opposition, meaning that the Sun is on the other side of the earth so our view is awesome. The rings could be seen with the naked eye. http://earthsky.org/tonight/saturn-closest-and-brightest-april-28

This week Saturn is showing us anything but rest! http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/04/30/monster-hurricane-on-saturn-nasa/

COULD SHABBTAI BE GIVING US A SIGN? Yes, I believe it is.

  • Add this to the first naked-eye comet of the Century PanStarrs and I believe the signs in the heavens are speaking for us to ‘look up’. Comets, throughout history, have become known as a bad omen. They often appear several years before a major war or natural disaster.
  • Comet ISON, which will be seen the  best the first day of Hanukkah Nov 28, is expected to be one of the largest, if not the largest, in history.
  • These signs are coming before 2014-2015 back-to-back Blood Red Moons on Passover and Tabernacles!
  • 2015 will also have Solar Eclipses on both of the New Years on the Hebrew Calendar (Nissan and Tishri)
  • Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20 and Rev 6:12 all record before the LORD returns the moon would turn to blood (lunar eclipse) AND the sun to sackcloth (solar eclipse). Not ‘or’, or ‘either’, but AND.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

NOTE: I apologize for not putting the beautiful photos of Saturn at rest and distress. My laptop will be fixed shortly and I can get back to work writing!!  Blessings, Mary

Nablus, Israel

Posted: September 3, 2010 in Israel Study

Nablus was first called Shechem and when God called Abram out of Ur of the Caldeans and was led by the LORD to the land of Canaan, the first altar Abram built was in Shechem (Genesis 12:6-7). This was the first place that God promised the land to Abram and to his descendants. This was the place that Simeon and Levi waged revenge on the defilement of thier only sister, Dinah. (Genesis 34) This is where Joseph, the 11th son of Jacob is buried and the location of Jacob’s well. It is the largest city in the West Bank.

The Greek called it Neapolis (New City) and today it is the modern day city of Nablus. It is located between the mountains of blessing and cursing, Mount Gerizim & Mount Ebal in what is now called the West Bank. The word Nablus means ‘violence’.

July 11, 1927 (Tammuz 11, 5687) an earthquake shook the West Bank and the city of Nablus was most heavily hit. Almost every building was leveled and many were killed. 1919-21, the Arabs refused to allow Jews to settle there. Yet, following the quake, the Jewish municipality of Tel Aviv sent two truckloads of bread and financial assistance to thier enemies. According to government reports, many Arab lives were lost in the quake, but there was not one Jewish casualty.

Yesha, Israel

Posted: September 3, 2010 in Israel Study

Have you wondered where Yesha, Israel is located? Yesha is a Hebrew acronym for “Judea, Samaria Gaza” (Yehuda Shomron ‘Azza) , the land that was returned to the Jewish people in the Six Day War. It represented the land of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but  now used as the name of the resettlement of Jews in the area of the West Bank.

Ezekiel 36:1, “Son of man prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say…’O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord!” In Vs 2 they are called the ancient heights. Read the whole chapter that preceeds the Gog & Magog chapters of 38 & 39.

What is the West Bank? The West Bank is Judea & Samaria. The West Bank and the mountains of Israel are almost identical and contain all the altars made to the LORD by Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The West Bank contains the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Bethany, Hebron, Ai, Bethel, Shilo and Shechem. All these cities were in the Mountains of Israel, the Land that was Promised to the Hebrew people by God Himself. Genesis 13:17; Genesis 15:18; 17:19; 28:3-4; 28:13; Joshua 15; Romans 11:29.

Numbers 34:2, “This is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance.”

Israel is 9 miles wide at its narrowest point and 290 miles long, yet it is a stumbling block for all the nations of the world. Zechariah 12:3. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/139456 . The settlers in Yesha are risking their very lives to live in their inherited land. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for all Israel.

Ezekiel 36:7, “Therefore thus says the LORD God; “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear thier own shame.” (when God raises His hand in an oath, He is swearing an oath that cannot be taken back)
