Archive for the ‘Moon’ Category

Tonight the night sky was amazing and I just had to take a picture with my iPhone SkyView app. Sagittarius was sitting on the Milky Way, with a brilliant waxing moon on his back side. The Moon was in front of Jupiter with Saturn behind them.

SagittariusThe Archer, ‘conquering and to conquer‘. The represents the triumph of the Coming One, Jesus Christ. The ‘half-man – half-horse’ represents His dual nature as Son of Man and Son of God.

Jupiter in Hebrew is Tzedek and means ‘righteousness‘. It is the King Planet and represents Israel.

Saturn in Hebrew is Shabbtai and represents ‘rest’, Shabbat. Saturn is surrounded by 1,000 rings of ice and dust and the planet itself is gas. It represents the beautiful rest our Creator gave us as a gift each week. The Jewish Shabbat, 7th day rest, began Friday night at sundown.

When I went to look at my calendar to see if there was anything special about this date, my calendar said, “Ashura”. I had no idea what that meant so I needed to research this day to see if it had any significance to this beautiful Sign in the Heavens.

This is a Islamic celebration that began this year at sundown August 28 to sundown August 29, 2020. On the Islamic calendar it always falls on the tenth day of the month of Muharram.

Ashura, also known as Yom Ashura, is the day of atonement and mourning for Muslims and marks the day that Moses and the Israelites were saved from Pharaoh by God creating a path in the seas. Britannica.com says this is the date that ‘commemorated as the day that Allah parted the Red Sea for Moses (Musa) and his followers to escape from the pharaoh.’

The Shi’a Muslims see the day as the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram and the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, at the battle of Karbala. Hence, this is a holy day of mourning for the Shi’a Muslims. One of the customs of the believers is ‘self-flagellation’, whipping themselves and shedding blood.

What I see in this day and this sign is protection for Israel. According to Britannica.com, Muharram was one of the four sacred months when fighting was not allowed. This is good in this hour when protests and violence are raging in the streets.

Not everything in the heavenly means something, but when I am out at night and Holy Spirit says “look up”, I know there is something new to learn. And I keep learning. I am a life-time student of the Word of God in the Heavens and in the Bible. (Psalm 19)

Wednesday night April 8, at sundown, the Feast of Passover begins. This is the FIRST time that the inhabitants of Israel are commanded to quarantine in their homes since the first Passover of Exodus 12

Passover retells annually about when Moses told the Israelites to kill the lamb at twilight, sprinkle the blood of the lamb on the doorposts, go inside the home, close the door, roast the lamb and eat the entire lamb. At midnight, all the first-born in Egypt that were not behind the door with the blood died. (Exodus 12)

This year there are so many heavenly signs that I have posted previously this year:

  • Supermoon on Purim 2020 (2 day festival celebrating the salvation of the Jews world-wide, as recorded in the Book of Esther
  • Venus in Conjunction with Pleiades on the 10th day of the 1st month (Exodus 12:3)
  • The current pandemic COVID-19 and Corona “The Crown Bestowed” connection
  • Signs in the Sun, solar storms, affecting the Marine Life world-wide

The Supermoon of Passover this year will be the closest moon to the earth of 2020 and will look the largest and brightest. I saw an article in Breaking Israel News  of April 6 where the writer referred to this as and “End of Days Omen”, siting Micah 7:15, “As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt, I will show them wonders.” 

  • “The supermoon on Passover is not happenstance,” Rabbi Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, told Breaking Israel News. “God brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt on a specific day, a day that from the beginning of creation was imbued with special powers of redemption. The Midrash (homiletic teachings) say that the first redemption of Israel took place on this night and the final redemption will as well.”
  • “One of the wonders that will be seen in the end-of-days is an increase in the moon,” Rabbi Berger said.

That really struck me because I was up at 2:00 AM this morning reading the entire book of Micah! This last chapter I really spent time reading over and over. I have this chapter highlighted and underlined because this is what is read annually at a Tashlich, a repentance ceremony on the first day of Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets), by a flowing body of water. Micah 7:18:Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. (19) He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” Now I see why this fits perfect into this Passover!

You will hear that this is a “pink” moon, and that name comes from the Native American Indians in the northern states. They had a name for ever “full moon” of the year and that is how they understood seasons. This moon is NOT a “Blood Moon” and will NOT look pink or red.

  • January – Wolf Moon
  • February – Snow Moon
  • March – Worm Moon
  • April – Pink Moon (the pink wild flowers would be first to blossom across the fields)
  • May – Flower Moon
  • June – Strawberry Moon
  • July – Buck Moon
  • August – Sturgeon Moon
  • September – Harvest Moon or Full Corn Moon
  • October -Hunters Moon
  • November – Beavers Moon
  • December – Cold Moon

 

Supermoon Triad 2 of 3

Posted: January 27, 2018 in Moon, Signs In The Heavens

Super Moon Manhatten Jan 1 2018This photo was taken near Midtown in Manhattan on January 1, 2018. This was the largest of the 3 back-to-back Supermoons. You can find several beautiful photos online of this beautiful sight.

This 2018 New Year Supermoon was called a “Wolf Moon” because of how the pack of wolves would howl during the coldest full moon of the year.

Space.com wrote, January 1- A Full Wolf Moon. “Amid the bitter cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Native American villages. It was also known as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule. Some tribes called it the Full Snow Moon.”

January 1, all the news was about the book that was being released January 5, 2018. The book was titled “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff! Do you know what the Hebrew word is for coincidence? There is none!

Wolves have specific nature. They go in packs, hunting prey until their instinct of self-preservation is fulfilled. He attacks the weaker of the prey first. A wolf will not eat hay no matter how hungry they are, they are after flesh! Authors like Michael Wolff is after flesh, and to destroy people. They are only following their leader, who is leading them to steal, to kill and to destroy.

Wolff’s book is filled with flesh for the pack of Trump haters. But it is not over yet! God always has the final word.

 

 

I took this Revelation 12 heavenly alignment tonight right after sundown from my SkyView app on my iPhone. The moon is beginning to leave her feet, Jupiter is coming out of Virgo and she is still clothed with the Sun over her left shoulder. Under Leo (the Lion of the Tribe of Judah), Mercury, Mars and Venus came into heavenly alignment to make up the 12 stars forming a heavenly crown over her head.

Rev 12 1

Rev 12 3Rev 12 2

In this last SkyView photo, we see in the right side Jupiter, moving left we see the waxing moon over The Scales, and to the far left we see beautiful Saturn. In Hebrew Saturn’s name is Shabbatai and represents the Sabbath Rest. Jesus, our Messiah, is Lord of the Sabbath. In Him we live and move and have our very being. He is our sufficiency, He is our rest, He is everything we will ever need. No matter how the heaven and earth is being shaken, our faith can be built on the Rock.

Rev 12 4

AND THE REST OF THE STORY AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER 23 IS THAT WE ARE STILL HERE!!!

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!

Last night the moon was so bright and beautiful, but tonight will be the big treat! It will be seen in many countries according to NASA’s chart below. The East Coast in the US will be able to view it at sundown around 8pm. This rare full moon will also bring a four foot plus tide to the East Coast.

This Moon Eclipse is a penumbral moon and will not be the beautiful blood color as the total lunar Eclipse of next Passover, but it will still be a sight to behold. It is also called a Hunter’s Moon because the hunters are preparing to hunt before the long winter season.

IN HISTORY- I always like to find out what happened in Jewish History when something happens in the heavenlies. 96 years ago today, in 1917, the British government gave final approval for the Balfour Declaration, calling for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in historic Israel. The declaration took the form of a letter from Arthur Balfour, British Foreign Secretary, to Lord Rothschild, who had once been a member of the British Parliament. In 1922, the United States Congress formally endorsed the Balfour Declaration. In the ensuing decades, the British would slowly whittle away at their commitment — first lopping off 80 percent of the land east of the Jordan River to create the Kingdom of Transjordan (now Jordan), and then restricting Jewish immigration and rights to purchase land to the west of the Jordan River. The volatility of the situation ultimately forced the British to withdraw from the region in 1948.
