This is Part One of what I think will have 12 programs. The first 2 programs show that God is the Creator of each star and knows them by name. I am laying a foundation that will prove that the heavenlies do not belong to the devil or astrology. Genesis 1:14 show us that this is God’s ideas for ‘signs and seasons’, to keep us in His timing and to alert us of prophetic timing. I hope you enjoy!

I seriously am not interested in sports and horse racing, but it seems that God gives signs in to many ways when we are in prophetic times. I watch and pray and God shows me things as I ponder them. NOTE: Jesus never told us to speculate, so I watch, look for something that really stands out and pray. Yesterday was one of those days that caught me by surprise. I was tired and went to lay down in the bedroom, but I thought I would see what was on television. It was the Kentucky Derby and I was quickened in my spirit. I knew God had something to show me in that race.

I posted in 2015 when American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown what God was showing me so you can click on this link and it will show you some historical things about the Triple Crown and prophetic happenings in Israel.  https://mbostrom2.com/2015/06/16/triple-crown-winner-american-pharaoh/

Here are some of the things I observed yesterday:

  • It was the 144th Kentucky Derby – 12 is the number of governmental perfection and 12×12=144. 144 stands out to me because of the 144,000 Jews that will be sealed. 12,000 from each tribe
  • The colors of the horse were Red, like the Blood of Jesus
  • The number was 7 – the number of spiritual perfection
  • Justify broke a 136 year “Curse of Apollo”.  It was said that no horse could win the Kentucky Derby that did not race as a 2-year old horse. In 1882 Apollo won, a feat that has remained unmatched throughout these many years.
  • The jockey, Mike Smith age 52, was the 2nd oldest jockey to win. When he won he gave all honor to Jesus. “I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this amazing horse.” That is huge and bold!
  • Justify’s trainer is Bob Baffert who was also American Pharaoh’s trainer 3 years ago when American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown in 2015.
    • American Pharaoh was the only horse ever to win the Triple Crown and the Breeders Cup. Just interesting!

I will be watching the next 2 races! This one caught me off guard, but now I am on alert, Watching and Praying.

  • Kentucky Derby – 5/5/18
  • Preakness Stakes – 5/19/18
  • Belmont Stakes – 6/9/18  (my father’s birthday- he loved to watch the horse championship races)
    • This will be the 150th Belmont Stakes
    • Belmont Stakes is called the “test of champions” since it is such a long track.
    • This track is 1.5 miles long and open to 3-yr-old horses.
    • In 1973, the 105th Belmont Stakes, Secretariat won by 31 lengths, which remains a record

 

Israel at 70

Israel celebrated their 70th Year of Independence April 18-20 with 70 hours of celebration. The opening ceremony from Mt Hertzl was outstanding! Again, I feel I need to explain that this anniversary falls on May 14, 2018. In 1948 the Hebraic calendar had a leap year with 13 months, so Iyar 5 and May 14 were the same day. However, this year there is no leap year on either calendar so the celebrations are almost a full month apart. There will be celebrations on May 14 and there will be a parade of nations who will be coming to celebrate. This is also the date that the United States is expected  to officially move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

As I pondered this great event, I remembered being in the USSR in May 1991 after they had 70 years of communism. That was the year of “release” from the oppression started with Lenin and the Bolsheviks in 1917.

The number 70 is a great turning point in history. If you remember, it was at this point that Cyrus proclaimed it was time for the Jews to return to their land and rebuild the Temple. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1; Jeremiah 25:12; 29:10) Is it time for the Third Temple? I am not jumping to a conclusion of what this 70th milestone means, but it is something to watch!

I hope you will gain understanding of what a significant period we are living in right now. We are “brought into the Kingdom for such a time as this” and it is a time to be on high alert, on the wall, watching and praying.
