Sunday night at 9:44pm Central Standard Time we will view the 4th Blood Moon of the Four Blood Moons of 2014-2015. I went out into my back yard tonight, looked southeast and shot a few views with my SkyView App.

Moon near Aquarius 9.26.15Moon hear Pisces 9.26.15

 

 

 

 

In both shots the moon is black and white. The light blue planet below Pisces (fish) is Uranus and the bright blue planet in Aquarius is Neptune. Neither of these 2 planets are the original 7 planets, which made up the heavenly menorah on Creation.

Tomorrow night the Blood Moon will be found in Pisces – the Fishes. The sign of Pisces has always been interpreted as the nation of Israel. Why? Maybe because Abraham was a stranger here on earth, knowing there was a heavenly city, whose builder and maker was God. (Hebrews 11:10)

Abarbanel, a Jewish commentator, writing on Daniel, affirms that the Sign Pisces always refers to the people of Israel. He gives five reasons for this belief, and also affirms that a conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn always betokens a crisis in the affairs of Israel. Because such a conjunction took place in his day (about 1480 AD), he looked for the coming of Messiah.

E. W. Bullinger comments on this : Certainly when the sun is in Pisces all the constellations which are considered noxious, are seen above the horizon. What is true in astronomical observation is true also in historical fact. When God’s favor is shown to Israel, ‘the Jew’s enemy’ puts forth his malignant powers. When they increased and multiplied in Egypt, he endeavored to compass the destruction of the nation by destroying the male children; but their great Deliverer remembered His covenant, defeated the designs of the enemy, and brought the counsel of the heathen to nought. So it was in Persia; and so it will be yet be again when the hour of Israel’s final deliverance has come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Something on the Blood Moon I had not considered until it read it in JewsNews “Big Things Coming in 5776” –  the Muslim connection to the Blood Moon Tetrads!

full-moon-over-dcFrom the article: “The answer is, a tetrad lunar eclipse, if it does signify anything, has nothing to do with Jews. The moon is Islam. It has to do with Muslims. And 1493 was indeed a big year for Islam. It was the year they lost Europe. So was 1949, the year the Muslims lost the war against Israel. They were still fighting in 1948. The armistice and defeat was in 1949. If the tetrad lunar eclipses signal something about Jews, it would have been 1948, but 1949 was the defeat of Islam in Israel, not the founding of the State. In 1967 they lost Jerusalem and it happened in 6 days, so that one was on the dot.”

WOW! I had never seen that connection!

I did blog the Islam View of the Blood Moon at https://mbostrom2.com/2011/06/10/islam-view-of-a-lunar-eclipse.

No matter what – the heavens are declaring the glory of God! A week from tonight we will witness the 4th of the final back-to-back Blood Moons on Passover and Sukkot and we will never in our lifetime view this heavenly appearance of 4 Blood Moons on the Feasts of the Lord.

Next Sunday night we will be in our lawn, looking to heaven, witnessing the Super Blood Moon as the Feast of Tabernacles begins. In the south Texas area, the totality will be 9:44pm, September 27. It should stay the beautiful blood red color for almost an hour. Enjoy!

This morning I awoke and I heard “Just and true are your ways, O Lord”, from the Song of Moses in Revelation 15:3. We have been doing out part, crying out to God for our nation and repenting for the many great sins. We have come before a Holy Judge, on behalf of ourselves and on behalf of the innocent.

We are in the time in history that Moses was on the mountain for the second 40 days, seeking forgiveness for the entire nation of Israel because of the sin of the Golden Calf. In history, the day that he came down with the judgment of mercy was September 23, The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

This morning on a prayer call I had a vision of an hour glass, with time running out. Tonight ends the 7 year land cycle of Leviticus 25 and the last day of the Shemitah Cycle is today. Tomorrow begins the “Ten Days of Awe”, where books in heaven are opened for the ‘just, the unjust and those in-between’. I feel what the Spirit of the Lord is showing me is that there is judgment upon national leaders and nations right now and there is still time for them to humble themselves and turn to the Lord.

Time-is-running-out-HourglassThe books will be closed, judgement will be set at the end of the 10 days of Awe, as Yom Kippur begins, The Day of Atonement. In history, this is the day that Moses came down the mountain with the judgment of mercy for the nation of Israel. This year, the Jubilee Year will be announced on Yom Kippur. We are in very serious times, very dangerous times. Seek the Lord, not only for yourselves, but for the nations, for the leaders.

Tonight begins the partial Solar Eclipse. This will be over the southern part of the earth so most of us will not see it except by internet. I saw the short clip of what it will look like on http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2015-september-13. It looks like a bowl. May this not be filled with the judgment of God upon the nations as they prepare to take the Promised Land at the United Nations, Selah.

Revelation 15:3, “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.”

Eclipse Moon April 4 2015 2This photo was taken with SkyView App on my iPhone. We had a very cloudy sky so I watched the viewing online with Time.com.

The moon eclipsed closest to Porrima (aka Gamma Virginis). This is a binary star, meaning it consists of 2 stars that orbit together appear as one. I cannot find the Hebrew name for this star.

Virgo StarsWhen the eclipse reached totality, I joined believers around the world to pray for Israel, for the peace of Jerusalem according to Psalm 122:6 and Isaiah 62.  IsraelBreakingNews.com, April 2nd, carried a warning from an Israeli Rabbi regarding this blood moon and the numeric 4.

“A mystic rabbi living in southern Israel is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches. Rabbi Amram Vaknin, who similarly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, and Operations Pillar of Defense (2012) and Protective Edge (2014), warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time. One of Rabbi Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the sage, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States.” Read more at http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/35128/shocking-passover-blood-moon-predictions-by-israeli-rabbi-jewish-world/#XYyDWk3TfuIFzjdd.99

I was reading in E.W. Bullinger’s book Witness of the Stars this morning regarding the biblical meaning of the Constellation Virgo. On the bottom of page 33 Bullinger wrote “In the Zodiac in the Temple of Denderah, in Egypt, about 2000 B.C. (now in Paris), she (Virgo) is likewise represented with a branch in her hand, but ignorantly explained by a false religion to represent Isis!

ISIS? Watch and pray my friends. We are living in very exciting times.

It is not for us to speculate, Jesus never told us to speculate. Rather, He told us in Mark 13 “4 times” to “Watch”. The Greek word for watch is ‘agrypneō’, and means ‘to be sleepless, keep awake, watch’. This word is only found 4 times in the Bible and all 4 times are in this passage as Jesus commands us about the day or the hour of His Second Coming.

Shabbat Shalom my friends. Keep looking up! His redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28)

 

EclipsedMoon 4.4.15This alignment in heaven declares the “First and the Last” of the story of Jesus!

The ancient empires not only looked at what was happening in the Sun and Moon, but they watched by which constellation the heavenly event appeared. I have a picture above from Astronomy.com that I will work with today to explain the formation. (Note: Sky and Telescope do not agree, so we will have a final verdict of the alignment tomorrow morning and I will post it from the photo I take with my SkyView ap on my iPhone)

Psalm 19:1 (NLT) The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. (4a) Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.

The Constellations in the heaven tell the story of Jesus’ First Coming to His Second Coming, beginning with ‘Virgo, The Virgin’ and ending with ‘Leo, the Lion’. I first understood this truth from Marilyn Hickey’s book, Signs in the Heavens and then I was totally convinced from E.W. Bullinger’s book, Witness of the Stars.

There are 3 books in heaven that tell the story of Jesus, The Redeemer (1) His First Coming (2) The result of the Redeemer’s Sufferings (3) His Seconding Coming and the Glory that shall follow.

VIRGO: The Virgin, the ‘Promised Seed of the Woman’ (Genesis 3:15); Isaiah 7:14, Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel”

SPICA: The moon eclipsed Passover last year right over the brightest star of Virgo, Spica. In Hebrew it is called Tsemech and refers to the Messiah, the Branch.

DENEBOLA: The 3rd brightest star in the Constellation of Leo the Lion. This is found in the tip of Leo’s tail and means “the judge” or “Lord who cometh

LEO: The Lion- from the 3rd and last Book foretelling the Second Coming of The Redeemer. His fore feet are always on Hydra, the serpent, who takes up 1/3 of the circle of the heavens.

CORVUS: The Raven – the very last sign in the heaven. The vulture is sitting on top of Hydra’s back, devouring the serpent! Revelation 19:17, ‘And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;‘ There are 9 stars in the sign of Corvus, the number of judgment.

Jesus may have come as the Lamb of God, but when He comes back He will come as a Lion of the Tribe of Judah!! Revelation 5:5, But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

You may bring an umbrella if there is 50% chance of rain. Prepare to meet the Lord, there is 100% percent chance of His Second Coming soon!! We are closer today than yesterday! Keep looking up- your Redemption is drawing nigh!

 

 

 

EclipsedMoon 4.4.15The 3rd Blood Moon of the 4 Blood Moons of this current Tetrad will reach fullness at 5am Pacific time and 7am Central time. I am in the Texas area so I will get up at 5am to watch the beginning of this eclipse before it goes out of our view. For the remainder I will have to watch online.

This eclipse is so full of the number 4! (I got most of the information from BreakingIsraelNews.com which had a great article from Mark Biltz and Bob O’Dell, posted March 31st.)

  • 4th day of Creation, Genesis 1:14, And God said, ‘Let there be lights (light holders)  in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons (moedim- fixed appointed times), and for days, and years.’  (Ps 104:19, He made the moon to mark the seasons)
  • 4th month- April
  • 4th day – April 4th (Passover – Nisan 14 on the Hebraic calender)
  • Eclipse will have totality 4 minutes and 44 seconds
  • 4th shortest of all eclipses in 4,000 years.
  • 4 Cups of Passover from Exodus 6:6-8: (1) I shall take you out of Egypt (2) I shall rescue you from Egyptian slavery (3) I shall redeem you with My power (4) I shall bring you as My people
  • 4th Commandment, “Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy”. This Passover and Blood Moon fall on the Sabbath Day.
  • The 4th letter of the Hebrew Aleph Bet is Dalet and represents the #4. The pictograph of Dalet is a Door. During the first Passover, the Hebrew fathers applied the blood of the lamb to the doorposts of their house as instructed to Moses by God. The blood would protect the household from the death angel and the last plague, the death of the first born.
  • Below are some meanings of the number 4 in Scripture (E.W.Bullinger, Numbers in Scripture)
    • Number of material completeness finish on the 4th day of Creation, world number, ‘city’ number
    • Regions of the earth- north, south, east, west
    • Divisions of the day- morning, noon, evening, midnight
    • Four Seasons- Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
    • Four lunar (moon) phases
    • Four great elements- earth, air, fire, water
    • Division- in Eden, the river parted into 4 streams
    • Four Gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

Blood Moon over Dome of the Rock March 2008This famous photo of the Blood Moon over the Dome of the Rock  taken February 20, 2008 was what spurred Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries to find the incredible Four Blood Moon teaching. I have been following Pastor Mark Biltz via Bill Koenig of Watch.org and both are credible in their reporting.

This morning I discovered an 3 incredible facts of this beautiful photo.

  1. The Blood Moon was on a Shemitah Year. The 7th year of the 7 year cycle for the land as ordered by God in Leviticus 25.
  2. February 20, 2008 was the 14th of Adar 1, called “Little Purim”. When the Hebraic calendar has a leap year there are 2 months of Adar, 1 & 2 or A & B. The festival of Purim always falls on the 2nd month of Adar during a leap year, but the first month is also joyous. It is called Purim Katan and the thought is “Always Happy”.
  3. A Hebrew leap year is called a “pregnant year” since it has 13 months instead of 12. I think this year was pregnant with the unveiling of the message of the Four Blood Moons!!!

Keep looking up!!
