This concludes the series of events of April 19 in History. My hope is that you will cover Israel with much prayer April 19 as they celebrate their 70th Anniversary of fulfillment of the promise of God, “Will a nation be born in a day?” (Isaiah 66:8)

The first of 3 programs of Cycles of April 19 was to help you understand cycles in history, and how “history merely repeats itself”.  This will be part 1 of the actual events in history of April 19 and dates around it. I have found in research that April 19-May 1st is a 13-day time period that demands child sacrifice by fire all the way back to  the time of Baal worship. In our time, it has changed to the time of ‘gun fire’, fire and terror.

Israel became a nation again on Iyar 5 on their calendar. On the Gregorian calendar that fell on May 14, 1948. That year was a leap year on the Hebrew calendar so there was 13 months that year, so this year the 70th Anniversary will fall on April 20. Since that day is a Friday and begins the Shabbat at nightfall, the celebration in Israel will be on April 19.

One thing that we need to understand in these days is that “history merely repeats itself”  (Ecclesiastes 1:9 NLT) The Amplified Bible reads, “That which has been is that which will be [again], and that which has been done is that which will be done again.

I have followed Bill Koenig of http://www.watch.org for years about the cycles of April 19 in History. I have recorded three programs regarding this event of 2018. This first program I will help you to understand cycles. Weathermen and Wall Street stockbrokers understand how cycles affect us, but the Church as a whole has been

 

Ecclesiastes 1:9 tells us “History merely repeats itself, it has all been done before.” That is showing us from historical examples given in the past, we can learn how to live in the now. We learn from their mistakes and from their true faith. I Corinthians 10:11, “These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.” For this reason I follow the cycles of events in Jewish history which are found in the Jewish (lunar) calendar.

I have also found some incredible cycles that follow history from the calendar used for our everyday lives in North America. These cycles of events are found on April 19 and the days surrounding that date. It seems the devil likes to celebrate his victories in cycles and it brings fear during that time. As an intercessor I am on alert on the wall, speaking the Word of God over our nation and Israel.

Bill Koenig is a White House Correspondent and has followed these events through history. His website is http://www.Watch.org and I expect that he will be bringing an article regarding April 19th in History, which Bill calls, “Date in infamy for America.”

April 18-19 will be the March of Remembrance in Houston and surrounding areas. This will be the 70th anniversary of the liquidation of the Holocaust death camps. I will be marching in remembrance both days, honoring the victims and standing for the Jewish freedom in our nation as growing antisemitism blankets the earth. For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent (Isaiah 62:1)

Keep praying, don’t lose heart or give up! Keep seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. God is not a liar, what He said in His Word will come to pass. He watches over His Word to perform it. But we get to chose what we say- are we speaking fear or faith? Are we saying the same fear word the media is saying or speaking the Word of God? We choose. Life and death are in the power of our tongue.
