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

 

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.
