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.

 

First of all, God does not change. Genesis 1:14, And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years”. Signs in Hebrew is ‘owth’ and means sign, signal, distinguishing mark, omen, warning, token. Psalms 8:3 tells us, “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and stars, which You have ordained..”. There are several scriptures of God’s original intent for the Sun, Moon and Stars and none of them have to do with your horoscope. Luke 21:25 is a good example of when Jesus began to talk about signs of His Second Coming, “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars..” Signs in the heavens were some of the first signs of His Coming.

Second, they are sign posts of something coming. When you leave on a journey with a specific destination, you may not see one sign of your destination, but the closer you get, the bigger they are an the closer together they are stationed. That is what is happening now, the signs in the heavens are getting bigger and closer together. Ten years ago people did not notice an eclipse, and now they are talking about it on every news source.

Third, God gives warnings about dividing His land. Joel 3:2b, ‘and I will enter into judgment with them there, whom they have scattered among the nations: they have also divided up My land.” Also see Genesis 15:18-21; 17:7-8; Amos 9:15; Lev 25:23, Deut 1:8 and remember that God watches over His word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12)

Blood Moons Over United States connected with Dividing God’s Land

  • July 16, 2000: President Clinton, Ehud Barak and Yassar Arafat were meeting at Camp David to give away 9% of the land on the West Bank and 100% of the Gaza Strip to the PLO & deciding about who rules the Temple Mount.
  • August 28, 2007: Headlines that day- Israel PM Olmert offers Temple Mount Sovereignty to the Palestinians at Camp David. Olmert and Abbas meet to discuss dividing Israel’s land and Jerusalem at Camp David.
    • The Temple Mount’s sovereignty was a central theme during both lunar eclipses, “Blood Moons” over the United States in 2000 and 2007.
  • What is the ancient Hebrew word for coincidence? THERE IS NONE! Rabbis say everything means something.

This past week in Israel, news broke out of President Trump’s “DEAL OF THE CENTURY”, or the proposed Peace Agreement drawn up by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

  • US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century,” expected to be rolled out after the elections on April 9, 2019, will include a Palestinian state on 85-90% of the West Bank and the division of Jerusalem, according to a Channel 13 News report. (Jerusalem Post)
    • NOTE: April 9 is Nisan 4, just as the New Year of the Sacred Calendar begins (Exodus 12:1-2). This election promises to be ugly and they have entered into the height of the election during the days that they are to be cleaning out all the leaven. Lord have mercy and open their eyes to the timing of Yahweh!
    • NOTE: April 19 is the ‘Day of Infamy in America”, also Good Friday, also begins Passover. Talk about an alignment! I will have a complete blog on this next week.
  • Regarding Jerusalem, the report stated that the city would be divided, with west Jerusalem and some areas of east Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and east Jerusalem – including most of the Arab neighborhoods – the capital of a Palestinian state.
  • Bill Koenig of Watch.org: Trump’s “deal of the century” parameters were leaked this week. It will call for a divided Jerusalem, a Palestinian state on 85-90% of West Bank. Israel would be able to annex existing communities in Judea and Samaria and keep sovereignty over the Holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem.

My conclusion from this is God is giving the United States a HUUUUGE heavenly warning, “DO NOT DIVIDE MY LAND!!!” Giant STOP LIGHT in the sky!

This Super Blood Wolf Moon takes place on the 2nd anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration, January 20, 2017 at 11:00am EST. What is the Hebrew word for coincidence, “THERE IS NONE!”

God’s promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 still stands and will never change. God promised, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you;
and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Bless means to ’empower to prosper’ and curse basically means ‘make smaller’. President Trump can handle dealing with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but no one can come against God and win.

It will not be the current shutdown or border crisis that destroys this nation. It will be the fact that our nation was raised by God to bring the gospel to the nations and to be a blessing to Israel. Bill Koenig’s book of Eye to Eye give report after report of what has happened in America 24-48 hours after pressuring Israel to give up the land. If this incredibly Deal of the Century goes through, I pray that God has mercy upon us.

 

 

 

I seriously am not interested in sports and horse racing, but it seems that God gives signs in to many ways when we are in prophetic times. I watch and pray and God shows me things as I ponder them. NOTE: Jesus never told us to speculate, so I watch, look for something that really stands out and pray. Yesterday was one of those days that caught me by surprise. I was tired and went to lay down in the bedroom, but I thought I would see what was on television. It was the Kentucky Derby and I was quickened in my spirit. I knew God had something to show me in that race.

I posted in 2015 when American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown what God was showing me so you can click on this link and it will show you some historical things about the Triple Crown and prophetic happenings in Israel.  https://mbostrom2.com/2015/06/16/triple-crown-winner-american-pharaoh/

Here are some of the things I observed yesterday:

  • It was the 144th Kentucky Derby – 12 is the number of governmental perfection and 12×12=144. 144 stands out to me because of the 144,000 Jews that will be sealed. 12,000 from each tribe
  • The colors of the horse were Red, like the Blood of Jesus
  • The number was 7 – the number of spiritual perfection
  • Justify broke a 136 year “Curse of Apollo”.  It was said that no horse could win the Kentucky Derby that did not race as a 2-year old horse. In 1882 Apollo won, a feat that has remained unmatched throughout these many years.
  • The jockey, Mike Smith age 52, was the 2nd oldest jockey to win. When he won he gave all honor to Jesus. “I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this amazing horse.” That is huge and bold!
  • Justify’s trainer is Bob Baffert who was also American Pharaoh’s trainer 3 years ago when American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown in 2015.
    • American Pharaoh was the only horse ever to win the Triple Crown and the Breeders Cup. Just interesting!

I will be watching the next 2 races! This one caught me off guard, but now I am on alert, Watching and Praying.

  • Kentucky Derby – 5/5/18
  • Preakness Stakes – 5/19/18
  • Belmont Stakes – 6/9/18  (my father’s birthday- he loved to watch the horse championship races)
    • This will be the 150th Belmont Stakes
    • Belmont Stakes is called the “test of champions” since it is such a long track.
    • This track is 1.5 miles long and open to 3-yr-old horses.
    • In 1973, the 105th Belmont Stakes, Secretariat won by 31 lengths, which remains a record

 

Israel at 70

Posted: April 23, 2018 in Israel Study

Israel celebrated their 70th Year of Independence April 18-20 with 70 hours of celebration. The opening ceremony from Mt Hertzl was outstanding! Again, I feel I need to explain that this anniversary falls on May 14, 2018. In 1948 the Hebraic calendar had a leap year with 13 months, so Iyar 5 and May 14 were the same day. However, this year there is no leap year on either calendar so the celebrations are almost a full month apart. There will be celebrations on May 14 and there will be a parade of nations who will be coming to celebrate. This is also the date that the United States is expected  to officially move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

As I pondered this great event, I remembered being in the USSR in May 1991 after they had 70 years of communism. That was the year of “release” from the oppression started with Lenin and the Bolsheviks in 1917.

The number 70 is a great turning point in history. If you remember, it was at this point that Cyrus proclaimed it was time for the Jews to return to their land and rebuild the Temple. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1; Jeremiah 25:12; 29:10) Is it time for the Third Temple? I am not jumping to a conclusion of what this 70th milestone means, but it is something to watch!

I hope you will gain understanding of what a significant period we are living in right now. We are “brought into the Kingdom for such a time as this” and it is a time to be on high alert, on the wall, watching and praying.

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
