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 2nd program 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 the Hebraic 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 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 ignorant of the Cycles on God’s calendar.

The enemy of God wants to terrorize God’s people and will use cycles to bring fear of dates of historic events, causing them to dread these days coming. God wants us to be aware, on watch for things that are about to happen with repeating of history.


I am not a sports enthusiast and have never followed horse-racing, until one of my mentors told me to “watch and pray” during the Triple Crown races. She said that the Triple Crown winner could be a  prophetic sign for Israel and the United States of America. This is the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years and the 12th overall.

Some Examples:

  • 1948 – Triple Crown Winner Citation – Israel becomes a nation and War of Independence
  • 1973 – Triple Crown Winner Secretariat – Israel Yom Kippur War
  • 1978 – Triple Crown Winner Affirmed – Israel and South Lebanon War

Jesus told us 7 times as recorded in Mark 13 & 14 to “watch” in the Last Days. Therefore I feel my position as a follower of Jesus Christ is to “watch and pray”. The name American Pharaoh struck me as very interesting because of things I have seen with America’s current president.

  • When Barak Obama was inaugurated the Torah reading for the week included Exodus 1:8, “Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.” Note it did not say Pharaoh, but king. This current president has been more like a king than the former presidents.
  • One Mr Obama’s first presidential foreign travels he visited Egypt. He looked at a hieroglyphic of a pharaoh and said, “He looks like me! Look at those ears.” He did resemble the ancient pharaoh!
  • Mr Obama is the 44th president with 44 tzars. Those tzars are appointed by him, paid by our tax dollars and now seem to have power than the elected Senate and Congress. Exodus 1:11, “Therefore they set taskmasters…”
  • During his presidency, the abortion rate has gone down and I think it is due to the faithful intercession of saints. Exodus 1 says the midwives had the fear of God and prevented the baby boys from being killed at birth. Intercessors are likened to midwives, who aid and assist the birthing.

I will keep praying for our nation and our leaders as directed by God in I Timothy 2:1-4, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” But I will definitely be watching and praying.

So many things are hanging in the balance for the United States and Israel and God needs us on the wall, watching and praying. Ezekiel 22:30 records there were no watchman, ““So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” I believe that whatever is coming can be stopped or lessened by our prayers.

There are great breaches in our wall, the protection of the United States. I feel we are near to the timing of Nehemiah 1:3 again, “They said to me, “Things are not going well for those who returned to the province of Judah. They are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem has been torn down, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.” We are not there yet, but closer than you think.



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.

This week Saturn is showing us anything but rest!


  • 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. . 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)
