Shabbat is Sabbath in Hebrew. It is #7676 in the Strong’s Concordance and it is used for Sabbath, Day of Atonement, Sabbath year, and weekly Sabbath. It is to be used for any day that the LORD states is to be holy, land rest, a day of rest, no work. Holy means to set it apart from every other day.

Tonight is very significant! We have 3 Sabbaths tonight.

  • Weekly Sabbath for the Jews begins at sundown Friday and ends sundown Saturday. If that seems strange to you, go back to Genesis Chapter 1 and see how God orders the night before the day.  Also, did you know that was not a command until God gave the 10 Commandments at Mt Sinai?
  • Monthly Sabbath – called “Rosh Chodesh”, which means “head of the month”. Every beginning of the months they were commanded to rest, give their First Fruits of praise, worship, offering and hear a message from the prophet. Tonight begins the new moon marking the month of Nissan on God’s calendar.
    • God actually calls this the “first month” of the year
    • In Hebrew it is called Abib or Aviv (Exodus 13:4), meaning the grain is in the ear – marking the barley harvest in Israel
    • After they left bondage in Babylon, this month became to be known as Nissan or Nisan, “time of the flight”, following the time of Passover.
    • This month is a very “redemptive  month
  • Yearly Sabbath – This is a New Year that began Exodus Chapter 12:2, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
    • For 2448 they had been celebrating the New Year in the Fall marking the years from Adam’s creation.
    • Now 6 month later they have a New Year to count the month

REJOICE, REJOICE, REJOICE! Find some place to worship, give Him the First Fruits of your Worship and listen to a  prophetic voice!!!

 

Ecclesiastes 3:1, To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

  • In Hebrew that is entire verse is only 4 words. Zeman (to every thing there is a season) ‘eth (and a time)  chephets (every purpose) shamayim (heavens)
    • Zeman means ‘a set time’, appointed time, time (Neh 2:6; Est 9:27, 31; Ecc 3:1)

Is there a significance to Iran’s Islamic Republic under the Islamic Ayatollah being 40 years old today? I believe so, but first I must  give some references to show how this will fit  into the Last Days prophetic timing. From the Bible and history, we see that 40, 70, 50, 100, 400 are some significant time limits on nations. I do believe that Iran is now in the last of the last of the Last Days and they are fitting perfectly into Ezekiel 38:5, called Persia. But also, since the reign of the ungodly has come to fullness, we are hearing that great revival is happening in the underground church. We are ready to see a clashing of the kingdoms of light and dark in the nation of Iran, to the Persians under cruel Islamic rulers.

Genesis 15:13, Then He said to Abram: “Know (yada) certainly (yada) that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. (16) “But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”

  • Yada is  a  Hebrew word meaning to perceive, understand – but also in a carnal intimate natures as  Adam ‘knew’ (yada) Eve and she conceived.(Genesis 4:1)
  • For the Israelites, there had to be a fullness of time of the iniquity of the  Amorites that had occupancy of the Promised Land. But God did promise them a ‘time limit’

Jews in Bondage in Babylon for 70 years:

  • Daniel 9:2, in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the LORD through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. (Jeremiah 25:11-12; 29:10)

Church in Russia in Bondage for 70 years:

  • In the 1930’s a Christian woman gave a prophetic word about a man arising named Mikhail with a mark on his forehead. She continued that there would once again be  freedom to worship and revival would come to the nation. This freedom would last for a short time, however; then repression would begin again.  History marks that darkness was approximately 70 years
  • Mikhail Gorbachev was born 1931 and came into power of the USSR March 15, 1990 – December 25, 1991.
  • The USSR socialist state began 12/30/1922 and ended 12/26/1991, but  the oppression began before 12/30/1922. When I was in the USSR in 1991, we saw the spiritual starvation  for the Word of God.
  • In those years there were the most horrendous, oppressive times in darkness, where the church had to go underground.

In E.W. Bullinger’s classic book on “Number in Scripture”, the number 40 is “a period of probation, trial and chastisement – (not judgment, like the number 9 which stands in connection with the punishment of enemies, but the chastisement of sons, and of a covenant people)… But where it relates to enlarged dominion, or to renewed or extended rule, then it does so in virtue of its factors 4 & 10, and in harmony with their signification.”

  • 40 years of probation by Trial
    • Israel in the Wilderness (Deut 8:2-5; Ps 95:10; Acts 13:18)
  • 40 years of probation by prosperity in deliverance  and rest
    • Under Othniel Judges 3:11; under Barak Judges 5:31; under Gideon Judges 8:28
  • 40 years of Probation by prosperity or enlarged dominion
    • Under David 2 Sam 5:4; Under Solomon 1 Kings 11:42; Under Jeroboam II, 2 Kings 12:17-18; 13:3, 5, 7, 22, 25; 14:12-14, 23, 28; under Jehoash, 2 Ki 12:1; under Joash, 2 Chron 24:1
  • 40 years of Probation by humiliation and servitude
    • Israel under the Philistines, Judges 13:1; time of Eli, I Sam 4:18; under Saul Acts 13:21
  • 40 years of Probation by waiting
    • Moses in Egypt, Acts 7:23
    • Moses in Midian, Acts 7:30
  • 8 of the great periods of 40
    • Moses on Mt Sinai 2 times for 40 days; 40 days of spies in the Wilderness; 40 days of Elijah on Horeb; 40 days of Jonah and Nineveh; 40 days of Ezekiel on his right side to symbolize the 40 years of Judah’s transgressions; 40 days Jesus tempted by the devil; 40 days Jesus was with His disciples after the Resurrection

 

 

 

April 1, 2019 will be the 40th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Republic. January 16, 1979, the Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi was forced into exile. February 1, 1979 the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini made a victorious conquering return to Iran from exile. The new Islamic Republic under the Ayatollah’s leadership was proclaimed April 1, 1979.

Under Mohammad Reza’s reign, Iran marked the anniversary of 2,500 years of continuous Persian monarchy since the founding of the Achaemenid Empire by Cyrus the Great. We have just finished the Festival of Purim, which marks the events happening in the Book of Esther where the wicked Haman tried to wipe Israel out of existence – but God intervened and everything was turned to Israel’s favor.

I remember watching it on television, not understanding what that all meant, but I knew it was important. I was born again in 1982 and immediately I had a heart for Bible history and especially Israel.

Once the Ayatollah Khomeini came into power, all relations with Israel were cut off and now for the past 40 years every effort towards Israel was laced with hatred. They call Israel “Little Satan” and the United States “Big Satan”.  The priority of all money in the new Iran’s government was and is directed to wiping Israel off the map and they are behind the funding of all the missiles and weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

Tomorrow I will write regarding the significance of this Islamic Republic at 40 years. Forty is a key prophetic number in the Bible and their ‘season’ and reign may be  coming to an end. SELAH

 

How many of you are constantly drawn to look at the clock at 11:11? I truly believe that God is alerting this generation that we are the 11th hour harvesters.

We are currently in the month of Shevat, the 11th month on the Hebrew calendar. Wednesday, January 16 at sundown will be the 11th day of the 11th month. I felt it very strongly to share this with you at this time.

Matthew 20:6, “And about the eleventh hour (5pm) he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ (7) “They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive. (8) So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’ (9) “And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour, they each received a denarius. (10) “But when the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise received each a denarius. (11) “And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner, (12) “saying, ‘These last men have worked only one hour, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’ (13) “But he answered one of them and said, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? (14) ‘Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. (15) ‘Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’ (16) “So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.”

I was in prayer one day and Father showed me that ‘chosen’ actually meant paid the price to be qualified, not pew-sitters, not game players, but like a Navy Seal qualification to finish and become the best of the best in the US Navy. Each of us have got a part, each of us has an assignment. But the issue right now is “how are you going to finish?” Tick, tock- time is running out.

On the Jewish day, the night begins at sundown, let’s say 6pm. So the night goes from 6:00pm to 6:00am. This comes from God and Creation in Genesis 1, every date started at sundown. So the work day is 6am to 6pm. Therefore, the 11th hour of the work day is the 11th hour, the last hour to work and I do not want Jesus to say “Why have you been standing here idle all day?”

Eleven is a number of preparing to change over or transition , when you are preparing for the evening, ending all the work that needs to be done.

  • Deuteronomy 11:11, getting ready for a new place, crossing over into your promise
  • Luke 11:11, Jesus transitions the Jews in how they think about God, no longer slaves, but calling God Father
  • John 11:11, Lazarus our friend is falling asleep – transitioned between from earth to heaven
  • Proverbs 11:11, by the blessing of the upright, the city is exalted. Teaching them how to transition a city for God by putting righteous leaders in authority
  • Hebrews 11:11, Sarah received her promise and was taken out of the cycle of shame and unrelenting disappointments month after month with no baby. She has now been transitioned into receiving the promise of a son, Isaac.
  • What has God promised you and you have not seen. The work day is not over, there is still time so don’t give up on your promise.

Since the work day is ending, new assignments will be given out. I am seeing so many people in ministry all of a sudden being shifted to a new assignment, to a new territory.

Cindy Jacobs of Generals International said that 11 is like a birth canal, the baby is going from the comfort of the womb to the stress and discomfort of being born into a new, large life.

National Geographic: On the morning of 11:11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world. The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and northern tip of Madagascar. The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away…..lasting 20 minutes…… not heard by humans, but picked up on seismograph earthquake readings. Seismologist at Columbia University said, “I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it.”

Pastor John Kilpatrick  of Church of His Presence in Daphne, AL received a word for our children that God was going to be a “wall of fire” around them, received at 1:11am on 11.11.18.

Lance Walnau from Facebook tells of someone sent him at 1:11am, ” I see the 11:11 over you, not only has you have interpreted in your post, but I also see an 11th hour ministry call unfolding in your life. An urgency to move – but you will be given the wisdom, knowledge, ability and relationships to accomplish this new 11th hour move.”

This is what God has been showing me for 2019. We are going to see History repeat itself and God is going to use women for the wealth transfer just as He did in Exodus 12:36, the women ’emptied Egypt’. I hope you enjoy this episode of Ken Bostrom Ministries Broadcast. Get ready for this year, it is going to be tough, but in the end it will be worth it because we win!

Yesterday I posted about the Fire Balls Over The Texas Sky. That post was from a Bible Astronomy standpoint.

Almost immediately after that was published I was reminded of Hebrews 1:7 (TPT) And about his angels he says, “I make my angels swift winds,  and my ministers fiery flames.” Psalm 104:4 of the same translation reads, “You make your messengers into winds of the Spirit and all your ministers become flames of fire.”

What if those fireballs sighted in Dallas, Austin and Houston areas were angels – flames of fire of revival to these cities? Or maybe flames of fire to stir up the dead churches. It is interesting to me that since the midterm elections these cities are blue, while most of the rest of Texas is red. Just saying………… Maybe the intercessors need some encouragement and some extra help.

I am neither a Republican or a Democrat, I believe in voting the Bible. Right now the party platforms are so totally far apart. One is pro abortion, the other is pro life and this is only one of several examples of Bible differences. At my Bible Study I laid out the party platforms and read them the parable of the talents from Matthew 25:14-30. When believers stand before Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ, our works are judged. I believe we will be asked if we voted for righteous leaders. At least that is what I was shown this year in my devotion time. Just saying………

Psalm 103:30 (AMPC) reads, “Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, you His angels, you mighty ones who do His commandments, hearkening to the voice of His word.” When we decree the Word of God in prayer, these angels take the Word that we speak as a sword of the Spirit, and do warfare.

I can remember when I first came to the fullness of the Spirit in the 80’s, Frank Peretti’s books of “This Present Darkness” and “Piercing The Darkness” brought great understanding of how we work with angels in prayer. The town was full of New Age and Witchcraft and everything was going wrong. The angels would ask, ‘Why don’t they pray?’ And when they did pray and speak the Word of God the angels would be strengthened to go fight the demonic enemies of God in the spirit realm.

This morning I was on a prayer call and mentioned about the fireballs and wondered if they were angels sent to help us. I immediately got a text from one of the intercessors who was on the same prayer call. She just had a dream of a fireball falling on a Texas city that I will not name. Right after that I felt compelled to turn on John Kilpatrick of Church of His Presence in Daphne, Alabama and listen to his latest sermon online. WOW! He got a word from God on 11/11 at 1:11am called “Wall of Fire”!!! He read 7 to 8 pages of prophetic declarations for our children and grandchildren.

I believe that God is sending us encouraging words to those who had taken their eyes off Jesus and put their hope and trust into politics and the elections. Our hope must be built on nothing less than Jesus’ Blood and His Righteousness. On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.

Pray for all the leaders, pray for the President, pray for PM Benjamin Netanyahu. I used to pray 1 Timothy 2:1-2 for every leader, even those I did not vote for, because the Bible said if we do I would lead a quiet and peaceful life. But God gently corrected me that I was praying selfishly and quit too soon. 1 Timothy 2:1-4 reads in the NLT, ” I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.”

God loves each leader and wants them saved. I listened to a testimony of a very famous New Age leader who got radically saved and is now speaking the truth of Jesus Christ. Do you want your leader saved, radically living for Jesus? I know this would please our Father, for this is why Jesus came to the world, to undo all the works of the devil and to save the lost.

2 Kings 6:17, Elisha prayed, “Adonai, I ask you to open his eyes, so that he can see.” Then Adonai opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw: there before him, all around Elisha, the mountain was covered with horses and fiery chariots. (CJB) KEEP LOOKING UP!
