Today is the first day of the 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, the last of the Feasts of the LORD (not Feast of Israel and not Feast of the Jews). God said in Leviticus 23, “These are MY Feasts!” Feast in Hebrew is moedim, “fixed appointed times on God’s calendar‘.

Today (last night) moon. The 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles is always a full moon. Some years there is a Blood Moon on this day, as in 2014 & 2015 Blood Moon Tetrads. https://mbostrom2.com/tag/tetrad/ Passover and Day 1 of the Feast of Tabernacles are the only Feasts of the Lord that can have a Blood Moon. Blood Moons happen on a ‘full moon’ and Solar Eclipses happen when there is no light on the moon, right before the start of a Hebraic month.

The October Moon has come to be called a “Hunter’s Moon” in North America. It comes from the Native American Indians who lived in the north east area of the United States and they name each full moon after the cycle of what happens on the land that month.

January – Wolf Moon, named for the hungry wolves who would howl at the full moon

February – Snow Moon or Hunger Moon, when the food is so scarce from the cold and snow

March – Worm Moon, when the earth worms begin to move again as the ground begins to warm

April – Pink Moon, named after the pink flower that would bloom this month, phlox, first blooming in the Spring in the Northeast.

May – Flower Moon, when the wild flowers would be in full bloom

June – Strawberry Moon, when the strawberry fields would be ready to be picked

July – Buck Moon, when the new antlers would begin to appear on young bucks

August – Sturgeon Moon, known for the large number of fish in the Northeastern Lakes where the Algonquin tribes fished.

September – Harvest Moon (also full Corn Moon), when the farmer would work around the clock to get the fields harvested before the snow would fall.

October – Hunter’s Moon, when the animals are fattened and the hunters would find game to last through the long winter months

November – Beaver Moon, when the beavers are most active building their dams and setting in for the cold

December – Cold Moon, when the cold of winter begins to set into the Northern Hemisphere

 

Last night we had a FULL MICRO HARVEST MOON on FRIDAY THE 13th! The moon will also be full tonight. There has not been a Full Moon on Friday the 13th since the year 2000 and there will not be another full moon on Friday the 13th until year 2049. I took a photo with my SkyView App on my iPhone last night about 11:00pm CST. You will see it at the bottom of this post.

This moon was called a MICRO moon, which is opposite of a Super Moon. A Super Moon is when the full moon is closest to the earth and the Micro is when it is full and furthest away. This moon was to be 14% smaller in our view, but because it was a Harvest Moon it was extremely bright. I woke in the middle of the night and it was shining bright enough in our window that I did not have to turn on a light.

Throughout our Bible the number 13 is a symbol of evil. In the King James Bible, the chapters and verses border on supernatural. Of all the 13’s in the Bible, 10% of them refer to something good, 5% of them refer to something neutral, 85% of all the verse 13s in the Bible refer to sin, Satan, rebellion or a curse. The number 13 is a symbol of evil.  The first occurrence of the number 13 is found in Genesis 14:4, “Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled.” I am fully aware that the full moon last night was a time of great celebration in witchcraft.

But the sign in the heaven with the FULL MICRO HARVEST MOON last night was another promise from God to pour out His Spirit on all mankind. Galatians 3:13 is a fact and a promise, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree: (14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Below we see the Constellation Aquarius. It is interesting that the online Encyclopedia Britannica connects the Age of Aquarius to Eschatology (study of end times, last days). It links the events with the rebirth of Israel and the incredible rise of Christianity in that time period. E.W. Bullinger wrote in “The Witness of the Stars”, the sing of Aquarius (The Water Bearer) ‘Their blessings ensured or the living waters of blessing poured forth for the redeemed’.” This shows a man pouring forth water from an urn which seems to have an inexhaustible supply, and which flows forth downwards into the mouth of the fish, which receives it and drinks it all up. (pg 84)

The Moon is a symbol of the Church, which has no light in itself.  Genesis 37:9 speaks of Joseph’s dream that the Sun, Moon and 11 stars bowed down to him. His father’s answer was “This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?” The 12 constellations have represented the 12 Tribes and the Sun was likened to Jacob and the Moon to Rachel.

Right above the full moon is Neptune, which was not one of the original 7 planets at Creation so I do not have a Bible reference for this planet.

In the 40-Day Season of Teshuvah, there is an open heaven where prayers are answered more readily than any other time of the year. It is a time when the King is in the field and the presence of the Lord is closer during these 40 days. I pray you will have special times with Him in these 40 days.
