Today is the first day of the 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, the last of the Feasts of the LORD (not Feast of Israel and not Feast of the Jews). God said in Leviticus 23, “These are MY Feasts!” Feast in Hebrew is moedim, “fixed appointed times on God’s calendar‘.

Today (last night) moon. The 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles is always a full moon. Some years there is a Blood Moon on this day, as in 2014 & 2015 Blood Moon Tetrads. https://mbostrom2.com/tag/tetrad/ Passover and Day 1 of the Feast of Tabernacles are the only Feasts of the Lord that can have a Blood Moon. Blood Moons happen on a ‘full moon’ and Solar Eclipses happen when there is no light on the moon, right before the start of a Hebraic month.

The October Moon has come to be called a “Hunter’s Moon” in North America. It comes from the Native American Indians who lived in the north east area of the United States and they name each full moon after the cycle of what happens on the land that month.

January – Wolf Moon, named for the hungry wolves who would howl at the full moon

February – Snow Moon or Hunger Moon, when the food is so scarce from the cold and snow

March – Worm Moon, when the earth worms begin to move again as the ground begins to warm

April – Pink Moon, named after the pink flower that would bloom this month, phlox, first blooming in the Spring in the Northeast.

May – Flower Moon, when the wild flowers would be in full bloom

June – Strawberry Moon, when the strawberry fields would be ready to be picked

July – Buck Moon, when the new antlers would begin to appear on young bucks

August – Sturgeon Moon, known for the large number of fish in the Northeastern Lakes where the Algonquin tribes fished.

September – Harvest Moon (also full Corn Moon), when the farmer would work around the clock to get the fields harvested before the snow would fall.

October – Hunter’s Moon, when the animals are fattened and the hunters would find game to last through the long winter months

November – Beaver Moon, when the beavers are most active building their dams and setting in for the cold

December – Cold Moon, when the cold of winter begins to set into the Northern Hemisphere

 

Last night we had a FULL MICRO HARVEST MOON on FRIDAY THE 13th! The moon will also be full tonight. There has not been a Full Moon on Friday the 13th since the year 2000 and there will not be another full moon on Friday the 13th until year 2049. I took a photo with my SkyView App on my iPhone last night about 11:00pm CST. You will see it at the bottom of this post.

This moon was called a MICRO moon, which is opposite of a Super Moon. A Super Moon is when the full moon is closest to the earth and the Micro is when it is full and furthest away. This moon was to be 14% smaller in our view, but because it was a Harvest Moon it was extremely bright. I woke in the middle of the night and it was shining bright enough in our window that I did not have to turn on a light.

Throughout our Bible the number 13 is a symbol of evil. In the King James Bible, the chapters and verses border on supernatural. Of all the 13’s in the Bible, 10% of them refer to something good, 5% of them refer to something neutral, 85% of all the verse 13s in the Bible refer to sin, Satan, rebellion or a curse. The number 13 is a symbol of evil.  The first occurrence of the number 13 is found in Genesis 14:4, “Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.” I am fully aware that the full moon last night was a time of great celebration in witchcraft.

But the sign in the heaven with the FULL MICRO HARVEST MOON last night was another promise from God to pour out His Spirit on all mankind. Galatians 3:13 is a fact and a promise, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree: (14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Below we see the Constellation Aquarius. It is interesting that the online Encyclopedia Britannica connects the Age of Aquarius to Eschatology (study of end times, last days). It links the events with the rebirth of Israel and the incredible rise of Christianity in that time period. E.W. Bullinger wrote in “The Witness of the Stars”, the sing of Aquarius (The Water Bearer) ‘Their blessings ensured or the living waters of blessing poured forth for the redeemed’.” This shows a man pouring forth water from an urn which seems to have an inexhaustible supply, and which flows forth downwards into the mouth of the fish, which receives it and drinks it all up. (pg 84)

The Moon is a symbol of the Church, which has no light in itself.  Genesis 37:9 speaks of Joseph’s dream that the Sun, Moon and 11 stars bowed down to him. His father’s answer was “This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?” The 12 constellations have represented the 12 Tribes and the Sun was likened to Jacob and the Moon to Rachel.

Right above the full moon is Neptune, which was not one of the original 7 planets at Creation so I do not have a Bible reference for this planet.

In the 40-Day Season of Teshuvah, there is an open heaven where prayers are answered more readily than any other time of the year. It is a time when the King is in the field and the presence of the Lord is closer during these 40 days. I pray you will have special times with Him in these 40 days.

Friday the 13th

This is a new one for me! I had never heard of a Black Moon Supermoon before so I though many of my subscribers were as clueless as I was.

Depending on where you are on the earth, the new moon falls on either July 31 or August 1st. There will either be a ‘second’ of two new moons in July or August.

Just as a Blue Moon is the 2nd full moon in one month, the Black Moon is the 2nd new moon. So for those who see the new moon tonight, this will be the Black Moon for you. For those who see the new moon tomorrow (August 1st), the Black Moon will be prior to the 2nd new moon. Clear as mud? haha

This new moon is a Supermoon, which means that it is closer to the earth on its monthly orbit and appears larger.

You will not be able to see this until the first sliver of the new moon is seen — a Black Moon cannot be seen with a naked eye. But for us on the Gulf Coast, or other coastlines around the world, they will see a significant tide change — expect extra-large spring tides because of the force of the extra-close moon.

When there is no light on the moon, it is totally black and that is the phase between the waning and the waxing of the moon. The new moon sliver will announce the new moon being ‘born again’, coming back to the cycle to wax to quarter, the to full, then to wane to quarter and then to none.

Each new moon begins a new ‘month’ on the Hebraic calendar that started in the Book of Genesis. That month will begin at sundown August 1st and is called the month of Av. The month of Av has both the most tragic dates (9th of Av) on the calendar and the most happy date on the calendar (15th of Av). The historical site I use to find thing in Jewish History is aish.com/dijh. I will write more about those dates as we draw nearer.

Currently we are in the Season of the Dire Straits on the Hebraic Calendar. This is a 3-week period of time between the 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Av. More on this blog from last year.

I could not seem to get away from the WOLF of the Super Blood Wolf Moon tonight and the significance of Two Super Wolf Moons in a row. Genesis 41:32, “And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.”

As I have recorded before, New Year’s Day 2018 was a SUPER WOLF MOON, the 2nd Super moon in a series of 3 in 60 days (extremely unusual). This year January 20 is a SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON, the first in a series of 3 Super moons in 2019. (2nd Feb 19, 3rd March 21, which is the Festival of Purim).

Last year on January 1st the Wolf stood out because Michael Wolff was releasing a  book called Fire and Fury which was released January 5, 2018, (Coincidence?) Every news source was some how talking about this book during the Super Wolf Moon. I studied the Wolf a little during that Super Moon, but now on the 2nd Super Moon I have dug deeper.

This quote is from Wikipedia: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is a 2018 book by Michael Wolff and which according to Wolff, details the behavior of U.S. President Donald Trump and the staff of his 2016 presidential campaign and White House. The title refers to a quote by Trump about the conflict with North Korea.

There was no way this book was intended as a compliment to our President. This was used by many to tear down his presidency, his staff,  and his character. Last year’s midterm election was one of the wildest in history and by many it was a vote against President Trump.

So, on this 2nd Super Wolf Moon in a row, and it being a Blood Moon, a ‘giant stop light’ warning in the sky, does the understanding of a “wolf” become prophetic? (FYI- Wolf moons only occur in January)

Since I am a Bible Teacher, I first look to the Word of God. Of the Tribes of Jacob (Tribes of Israel) Benjamin, being the 12th son, had the symbol of a Wolf. This comes from Jacob’s prophetic blessing on Benjamin before he died.

Genesis 49:27,  “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil.”

  • Two Stages – morning (Saul) and night (Saul became Apostle Paul, both from the lineage of Benjamin)
  • Early stages of his life, he shall devour his prey, savagely and not share- he will turn on you if you try to take his prey- spirit of wanting for himself at all costs
  • Older, more mature wolf will be willing to make sacrifices and give out good things which God has given him; whole nature has changed

The Tribe of Benjamin’s defeat was at their own making, the tribe turned to homosexuality (Judges 19:22).  Perverted men means “sons of Belial”, worthless, good for nothing. Basically morally corrupt men who did not conform to either human or divine laws.  Read Judges 19-21, with special emphasis of 19:22-29, which I consider the saddest story in the whole Bible. After that horrible gang rape, all the other 11 Tribes went to war against the Tribe of Benjamin, only 600 of the 21,100 Benjamites who carried swords survived. The Tribe was almost wiped out.

Benjamin’s weaknesses were spoiled by everyone, lazy, never had to work, would not defend himself or property.  They did not drive out the Jebusites so they took on their way of life, which was morally corrupt and void of following God’s laws.

His strengths were he was loved his Father Jacob, protected by all family members, abundant grace, ending with legacies of a mighty warrior  (King Saul, Esther, Apostle Paul). When in the older mature stage, they were excellent swordsmen and would fight to victory. The changed nature of the Benjamites were known for their ‘left hand’ tactics in battle.

Facts about Northern Wolves who would howl at the first full moon of the year – Timber Wolf or Grey Wolf.

  • Can be up to 7 feet long, from nose to end of tail (tail is normally 13-20 inches)
  • Grey wolf is a powerful animal.
  • It is savage and fearless, quite capable of bringing down an elk, or deer, caribou and moose by a chase during which they display speed and endurance.
  • Their diet consists of flesh! Wolves are prodigious eaters and when ample food is available, will gorge themselves. Able to eat 20 pound of flesh each at one sitting. They will return to an old kill to eat even after it has become putrid, although fresh meat is preferred.
  • They travel in packs of 6, all after the kill.
  • The wolf tears and rends its victim without mercy.

Now, does that sound like the ‘never Trumpers”? And the current 6-pack has intensified after the last election and added several to the 6-pack that are also Anti-Semites – hateful to the Jews and Israel.

But after meditating on Benjamin and his symbol, I am encouraged. Why? Because the prophets are speaking out the Promise of our Father! Joel 2:28, And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams,  your young men shall see vision. (29) And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.”

I’m excited now! Get ready for the promised Outpouring of Holy Spirit on all those who are rioting in the streets and ranting in the government system! God’s perfect will for us to pray is FIRST of all, pray for those in authority, for it is God’s will for all of them to be saved. (I Timothy 2)

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.

 

 

 

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.

I am doing an overview of the Signs in the Heavens of 2017-2018. 2017 was a tipping point and if you understand that God does not change, the Heavens still declare the Glory of God! This month, January 21 the United States will have a Super Blood Moon on the 2nd anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. I will be sharing on this in the 2 end of 2018 programs and what I see for 2019 on the 3rd episode I will upload tonight.
