Not all eclipses fit into Bible prophesy, but when they fall at a prophetic cycle in history and on specific Hebraic calendar dates it is a time to watch and pray. Jesus did not tell us to ‘speculate’, but He did tell us to ‘watch and pray’ and that is what I am doing.

Some of the verses where we or the disciples were told to ‘watch and pray’ are Deuteronomy 11:16; Matthew 24:42-47; 25:5; 26:38-44, 56, 69-75; Mark 13:33-37; 14:34-39, 41-44; Luke 12:37-40, 41-44; 21:34-36; Ephesians 5:143:10-14; 2 Peter 3:10-14; I Thessalonians 5:4-8; Romans 13:11; Revelation 3:1-3; 16:15.

One Greek word for watch is gregoreo, and it means to give strict attention to. It is used 23 times in the KJV New Testament, ‘watch’ 21 times, ‘wake’ and ‘be vigilant’ each once. We in the Gulf Coast are familiar with Hurricane watch and warnings and know what to look for, when to pay more attention to the weather forecasts. We should give the same heed to what we are to watch for, those prophesies of the Last Days that are yet to come.

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.” Since the Old Testament is written in Hebrew, we need to get a Hebrew mindset of what each of the purposes of the Sun, Moon, fixed stars and wandering stars mean.

  • Signs– owth, Lexicon states ‘signs of the times’, ‘token of the truth of prophesy’, ‘foretells of some minor event, the fulfillment of which serves as a sign or proof of the future fulfillment of the whole prophesy’
  • Seasons – moedim, fixed appointed times on God’s calendar, God’s Day Timer. The word ‘feast’ in Leviticus is this same word, ‘a fixed appointment with God’
  • Daysyom, days, exactly what it means. But in the Hebrew mindset, there are specific ‘holy’ days that God intends for them to keep separate, such as the 7th day of the week – Sabbath. Also Sabbaths of each month, the first day of the month, etc, These holy days, intended to keep separate and designated by the cycle of the moon.
  • Yearsshaneh, years, exactly what it means. However, in a Jewish mindset these years that are the most important are the Jubilees and Sabbath land rests. The cycle of the sun and moon with the cycle of the constellations determine each year.

When the Jews wanted to know what day there were on the month, they looked at the heavens. When they wanted to know what Feast of the Lord was coming, they looked at the heaven. Does God change? No! Malachi 3:6 states “For I am the LORD, I change not.” Things will still be on earth, as it is in heaven.

We are going to be looking at specific heavenly events on God’s calendar that will on happen specific, very important historical dates and Feast Days.

The first one is The Great American Eclipse of August 21st. It falls on the day before the first day of the month of Elul. The first of Elul to the 10th of Tishri are very important dates on the Hebrew calendar, days of repentance that prepare us for the High Holy Days. For this reason, I will be referring to this eclipse as a Teshuvah Eclipse, referring to the opening of the 40 days of Repentance.

The second heavenly sign is September 23, with an alignment in heaven that lines up with Revelation 12:1-2. This heavenly alignment has never happened before in history! This falls on a weekly Sabbath, but also follows the day after the 2 day Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah.

The third sign in the heaven will occur October 12 with Asteroid 2012 TC4. This day on God’s Day Timer is on Shemini Atzeret, the Eighth Day Assembly. This is the 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles and is treated as a special holy day.

I am going to break down each of these heavenly events in the next few weeks so you can see how important it is to ‘watch and pray’. Don’t speculate and have Rapture practice, but understand this is a specific time to be more alert and more attentive to what God is saying in your prayer time.

 

 

In 2015 I crafted a prayer for July 4. I was based on Scripture references regarding, not our INDEPENDENCE, but our DEPENDENCE ON ALMIGHTY GOD for our nation.

This past week I had a chance to read this aloud from a worship tent outside of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, PA. Below is a copy of this declaration. July 4, 2015, this was read from many of the states, including from a speaker system at the Washington Monument, Washington DC.

God Bless America

Proclamation for July 4 2015

 

Planet Jupiter News

Posted: April 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

Planet Jupiter is normally 484 million miles away from the earth, but for April 7 & April 8, 2017 it will be 415 million miles away. Last night on the local news the weatherman was saying it was 415 miles away! It is not quite that close.

Whenever there is news of Jupiter my ear opens wide to hear what is happening. Here are a few facts about Jupiter.

  • The Hebrew name if Tzedek and means ‘Righteousness
  • Jupiter is the largest of all the planets (wandering stars). It is so big over 1,300 earths could fit inside of it.
  • Called the King David Planet – historically represents kingship, coronations and birth of kings
  • Also represents Messiah, the Coming King
  • Also represents Israel – according to Jewish tradition, when Jupiter is hit from heavenly bodies it represents harm coming to Israel. In 1994, Shoemaker Levi Comet broke into 21 pieces. For 7 days, from July 16-22, a series of 16 fragments from the comet began to bombard the surface of Jupiter. Each impact was stronger than a nuclear bomb, area hit left a crater larger than planet Earth. This happened on the 9th of Av, the most dreaded day on the Hebraic calendar. The secret talks were going on in Oslo, Norway to exchange Israel’s land for peace, “Oslo Accords.”
  • In 3 BC Jupiter was in conjunction with Regulus (king star) in the constellation Leo, considered to represent the Tribe of Judah. This conjunction in the lion would be served as a sign of the birth of a leader.

There are a few reasons that this closeness of Jupiter is speaking to me.

  • Israel will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jerusalem coming back into the hands of the Jews June 7, 1967, which is Iyar 28 on the Hebraic calendar. That converts to May 24, 2017 this year to the Gregorian calendar.
  • Next year will be the 70th Anniversary of the rebirth of the nation of Israel, May 14, 1948. The date on the Hebraic calendar is always Iyar 28, but on the Gregorian calendar it will fall on April 20, 2018.
  • The Rabbis have announced this year to be a Jubilee Year, so everything means something. Israel is surrounded by strong forces that would like to wipe God’s covenant nation off the map. We will see God arise in great strength to fight.

The other reason is a heavenly alignment that began with Jupiter entering into the womb of Virgo November 2016 and will remain close to the womb until 9/9/17. According to my research, that has NEVER happened before. I just snapped this alignment with my iPhone SkyView App. The planet Jupiter is staying close to Virgo’s womb.

Jupiter 4.7.17

Steve Ciocccolanti taught a great message, Woman in Heaven 23 Sept 2017 on YouTube. I highly recommend watching that message. This will be an alignment that has not happened since possibly Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden.  This is the alignment that is spoken of in Revelation 12:1, “And there appeared a great (megas) wonder (semeion, sign) in heaven; a woman (Constellation Virgo) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” No other sign in the Bible is called a ‘great (megas) sign’.

September 23, 2017, 12 stars will crown Virgo- 9 stars of constellation Leo (fixed stars) and 3 wandering stars – Venus, Mercury and Mars. The moon will be at the feet and the Sun will be off the shoulder of Virgo. Joining the moon at the feet of Virgo 9/23/17 will be Comet 67P.

From the first Blood Moon (4/15/2014) of the Tetrad to Feast of Trumpets (9/20-22/2017) is 1260 days, which is the time period spoken of in the Book of Revelation. The first half of the 7 year Tribulation period is 3 1/2 years or, 1260 days.

Jesus told us to ‘watch and pray’, and I am looking up for our redemption draws nigh. Come Lord Jesus!

 

I took these photos at 10:00 pm CST with my iPhone SkyView App. It is showing the moon’s position with constellation TAURUS “The Bull” and ARIES “The Ram or Lamb”. In the heavenly story of Jesus, Taurus represents “Messiah coming to rule” and Aries represents “The Lamb that was slain, prepared for Victory”.

In the Bible, the Sun represents the Bridegroom and the Moon represents the Bride, who has no light in itself, but reflects only the light of the Bridegroom. We see this with Joseph’s dream in Genesis 37:9, when Joseph dreamed the Sun, Moon and 11 stars (constellations) were going to bow down to him. In verse 10, his father answered, “Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” They had the understanding of the heavens that has been lost today. Psalm 19:4-5 also likens the Sun to the Bridegroom.

So, what do I see in this. I see the light of the Bridegroom coming closer to earth to bring a great awakening to the Bride. The last time this happened was in 1948, 68 years ago, when Israel became a nation. It was also the same year that President Harry Truman pulled off a surprising election upset with Gov. Thomas Dewey. President Truman was instrumental in Israel once again becoming a nation in 1948.

November 14, 2016 at sundown will be Cheshvan 14. In Jewish history in 1917, the British government gave final approval for the Balfour Declaration, calling for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in historic Israel. On the Hebraic calendar, Cheshvan 17 is the date in history when the Great Flood began, and rained 40 days and 40 nights. One year later, on Cheshvan 27 the flood waters finally subsided and Noah and his family left the Ark with the animals.

Because the Jews have been entrusted in keeping God’s calendar accurate, they continue to follow the lunar cycle for each month. In history, the moon has been a sign for Israel and the sun has been a sign for those who follow the solar monthly cycle. For instance, a Blood Moon eclipse has always been a sign for Israel.

Mark Biltz, in his YouTube message of “Supermoon – 14th November 2016” reported that we will see 3 Super Moons in a row. The first was October, closest and brightest in 68 years was November 14, 2016, next December 2016. 2016 will end with 3 Super Moons in a row!

The next Supermoon like the moon of November 14,  this close and full, will be on November 25, 2034.

“RAISE UP THE OBADIAH’S”

By I Kings 18:1, Elijah is back on the scene after 3 1/2 years (verse 1 says ‘many days’) Elijah had been in Zarephath those many years, but where exactly is that area? Where Jezebel came from, by Sidon in the area that is now Lebanon.

When he comes back the word of the Lord came to him again, when the famine in Samaria was severe. ““Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.” The one Elijah brought the message to was Obadiah (not the prophet who wrote the book of Obadiah). Obadiah greatly feared the Lord and hid 100 prophets in caves and personally fed them with bread and water. This was after Jezebel massacred all the prophets of Israel she found. The word massacre in Hebrew is karath and means ‘cut off, cut down, eliminate, kill, behead, destroy”.

How does this parallel with today? There are godly men and women that God has raised up in the government and they have been going through much physical, spiritual, family, financial hardships, not to mention character assassinations. These may be elected government positions, or they could be those prophets, intercessors, pastors, ministries that God has given a voice in the government today. I personally know several who are tired, weary, lacking funds but keep on going because there is no going back from what God has called them to do.

In Elijah’s time, 100 men of God were protected by 1 man, and they were only fed with bread and water during the famine time. Jezebel was feeding 850 of the false prophets from her lavish table.

Today, those who reign over the media empire are fed well, fed from the king’s table (government) while the prophets of God sent to the government are barely making it financially, struggling to maintain their ministry as the spirit of Jezebel works to suck the life ouT of them.

Yesterday I felt compelled to get a stool and reorganize my A-C shelf, which is the highest shelf. What are the odds of me being compelled to do this on a nice Saturday afternoon? The odds are too high to imagine. Anyway, as I was reorganizing that shelf by author, I picked up the 2005 book, Journal of the Unknown Prophet by Wendy Alec of God TV. I then turned it over and my eyes immediately focused on “He Speaks to the Media“.

I have been so burdened about the lies and deception to the public through the media. It was no accident that this book came into my hands yesterday. I want to bring out a few lines from her prophetic word from pages 205-207, “Judgment Upon The Media”, a prophetic word given to Wendy in 1999:

“And so too My wrath is turned upon the peddlers and the soothsayers of this day. And it is you, the media, I hold accountable. For even in these past thirty years, surely you have propagated lies and bombarded My people day and night with your lies until the truth they once knew and embraced in their hearts was in turn exchanged for a lie. But the lie was your lie, manufactured and propagated by those great empires built by mankind. And so it was, that that which was originally birthed to glorify what was good and righteous and pure in the human heart became overtaken by the lust of money, power and greed. And avarice reared its head. And so the media empires of this world became tools to manipulate and control and exercise dominion over the public at large, over this generation…………..And then you took the faithful, and across your screens you mocked their faith. You exchanged faith for humanism and intellectualism and atheism, and many, many of My little ones fell and followed your lies. And so I tell you, O man, that your judgment awaits. The Son of Man is seated on a great white throne, and His angels stand like flaming fire…………For much, yes, so very much was given you, and from you, much was required, and as I watch you, in your self-deception and your delusions, I weep for you. For my warning to you is My mercy. Repent, O man; repent, O child repent. You whom I created to serve and to love Me, repent. Repent even today in your rejection of Me, I wait for you. I weep, I weep and wait for you each and every day. Repent, BELOVED man.”

“LORD, RAISE UP OBADIAH’S IN THE LAST DAYS TO HELP, ENCOURAGE, STAND IN THE GAP AND FINANCIALLY SUPPORT THESE FAITHFUL MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD YOU HAVE PLACED IN THE GOVERNMENT”

In March 8, 2007, Dutch Sheets (who is the best teacher ever on Elijah, Jezebel and Baal) gave a great report on the Strongmen over America, the ‘spirit of Baal’. I believe this is relevant for us today.

 

 

 

Problem: Tolerating Jezebel – Error of Church of Thyatira (Rev 2:18-19) Verse 20, “Notwithstanding, I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduced My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.”

The Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3 were real churches during the days of John, and a picture of the different Church periods throughout history. The 4th Church, of Thyatira was believed by many to be the Church Age during AD476-1520, The Tribulation, Church of the Papacy.

Our first pastor after was Al Scott M.Th. in Marshall, MN. He was a brilliant teacher and I have his entire study of “The Seven Church of Revelation”. He expressed that the Church of Thyatira’s emphasis was works. “Good works for salvation” is false doctrine this church age embraced. The city was a very commercial city, dealing with “trade-guilds”, much like the powerful unions today. Pastor Scott wrote, “These trade-guilds presented Christians with a real problem. No one could hope to be a prosperous trader unless he was a member of these guilds.But the trade-guilds were intimately associated with the worship of pagan gods.” Christians faced poverty, losing their business unless they participated with the heathen feasts, where the grossest sexual practices took place.

He goes on to say, “It is believed by some that this woman whom the Lord calls “Jezebel” was associated with the Sambathe. She had professed Christianity, but now urged Christians to compromise and join the trade-guilds.” The Oriental sibyl called the Sambathe, a heathen god was sought at her shrine for guidance.

In regards to the church age of Thyatira, Pastor Scott wrote, “Thyatira symbolizes the rise of the Papacy, of which Jezebel is a type….Those who remonstrated against the Pagan practices and idolatry of the Roman Church were subjected to the severest persecution, and multitudes gave their lives during the cruel inquisition.” From the periods of 709-1534 these following practices were brought forth. Kissing the Pope’s foot, Worshiping of images and relics, Use of ‘holy water’ began, Canonization of dead saints, Fasting on Fridays and during Lent, Celibacy of the priesthood, Prayer beads, The Inquisition, Sale of Indulgences, Transubstantiation, Adoration of the wafer (host), Bible forbidden to laymen, Cup forbidden to people at communion, Doctrine of purgatory decreed, Doctrine of seven sacraments affirmed, The Ave Maria approved, Jesuit Order founded.

The entire study of the churches at the time of the writing, the different church ages and where we see ourselves spiritually in our walk is all very interesting. Many have made a career of just the study of the Book of Revelation. But, I want to stick to the connection to the Days of Elijah.

Trade-Guilds: It is interesting that at the time of this writing, here in America, the Church is either under tremendous attack in their careers because of their belief, or tolerating the spirit of Jezebel. In Hollywood, there are many unions that if you do not agree with same-sex marriage you cannot work there. Cake decorators and flower shops who stand for the Bible of ‘one man and one woman’ have lost their businesses and gone bankrupt. There are recordings of Muslim bakers being approached for a gay wedding cake, and refused. They were not targeted, they were not sued. Why? The spirit of Jezebel that is operating behind the scenes is out to kill the prophets again,and not just the prophets, but to destroy the worship of “One True God” in America. Who would have thought a 7-year old boy would have the sheriff come into the school to order the child not to give students Bible verses. A county clerk was put in jail for not giving a gay couple a marriage license. I think you get my point. IRS has targeted auditing 501(c)3 religious organizations. I personally know of one organization that the agent actually told them to only go after Christian organizations.

Jezebel always operated with the religious system and political system. Jezebel was a control freak and the spirit of Jezebel is all about control. Jezebel works under the spirit of Baal, which is a principality. Dutch Sheets taught in 2007 that this may be the Strongman, or one of the main spirits over America. Look how far we have morally gone down since 2007,  look how much this spirit has increased. Behind this spirit is murder and a death culture.

  • Molech was under Baal and that was the killing of babies – abortion.
  • Baal prophets were cutters (I Kings 18:28) – teens are cutting themselves today to relieve the pain they feel
  • Baal is the strongman behind sexual perversion – homosexuality, pornography, sex trafficking
  • Baal-berith is another name of Baal and it means ‘the lord of covenants’ – attempts for Christians to leave God and ‘marry’ or align with him – we see this in the tattooing, punk, darkness
  • Baal always goes after the next generation

And we cannot be tolerant. Jesus warns us – DANGER! PASSIVITY! I got a message on Danger! Passivity! a few years ago and it is more needed today than ever. A passive person no longer has a fight – that is why the sex slaves no longer try to run away, lost their fight. That is why the Jews during the Holocaust walked into the showers, ovens with no fight left. That is why men are kneeling on the shores in the middle east, dressed in orange jumpsuits, getting their heads cut off by ISIS.

Get your HOPE back Church! Proverbs 13:12 in the Voice translation reads, “Hope postponed grieves the heart”. NKJV reads, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” People have lost hope in their government and have quit praying, and quit voting. ‘Why try’, they say. But when Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders rose up and people begin to hope that we still have a say in the government. And now the battle of the spirit of Baal and Jezebel working behind the scenes really comes forth with great strength.

The Bible gives up HOPE, the Bible teaches us how to pray. The Bible teaches us not to put our trust in any one man. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.”  Align yourself with someone who is organized to stand for a righteous cause. Get into a prayer group and pray with awareness of what is happening, seek God for our families and nation.

These are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

 

 

 

 

 

So what was happening in the Southern Kingdom? What was going on in Judah?  They finally had a righteous King,  Jehoshaphat. His name means, “Jehovah has judged”. He began his reign in the 4th year of King Ahab of Israel’s reign and reigned 25 years.

2 Chronicles 17:3, “Now the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the former ways of his father (ancestor) David, he did not seek the Baals (4) but sought the God of his father, and walked in His commandments and not according to the acts of Israel. (5) Therefore the Lord established the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah gave presents to Jehoshaphat, and he had riches in abundance. (6) And his heart took delight in the ways of the Lord; moreover he removed the high places and wooden images from Judah”. The remainder of the chapter goes on to say how powerful they were, how abundant  the riches of the land. Because they had reform, revival.

David was not actually his ‘father’, his father was King Asa. Jehoshaphat was the 4th King of Judah,  the kings who came from the bloodline of King David, ‘a man who was after God’s heart’. (Acts 13:22)

King Jehoshaphat not only brought the worship of the One True God back into Jerusalem, but he sent priests throughout all the Kingdom of Judah to teach the people the Book of the Law. No longer would God’s people perish for a lack of knowledge.

Their borders were safe and there was a new  respect for Judah. 2 Chronicles 17:10, “And the fear of the Lord fell on all kingdoms of the lands that were around Judah, so that they did not make war against Jehoshaphat.” That little patch of the world again held respect and power of all the kingdoms.

During the hard times in Israel, the people groaned, mourned, suffered. They were in famine. They were in total ignorance of their great God, Jehovah. Can you imagine what it was like? Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the Lord than any of those before him…. Ahab … did more to provoke the Lord, the God of Israel, to anger than did all the kings of Israel before him (1 Kings 16:30, 33). Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”(2 Corinthians 3:17) There was no freedom or liberty in the northern kingdom of Israel, only bondage and darkness.

During the same time the southern kingdom of Judah rejoiced. There was freedom from war, rain, a reverential fear of the Lord, liberty. What made the difference? A righteous leader!

Proverbs 29:2 tells us, “When just leaders are in power, the citizens celebrate;
    but when evil people gain control, their joys become moans.” (The Voice)

Later in his reign, King Jehoshaphat made wrong decisions, but it was wonderful in the land when he followed God with all his heart.
