Posts Tagged ‘Hebrew leap year’

Tuesday February 5 at sundown begins the 12th month on the Hebrew calendar, which is the month of Adar. But this month is different because it is a Leap Year and they will have 2 months of Adar, the first being Adar A (Adar 1) and the second being called Adar B (Adar 2).

It is called a Pregnant year because it has 13 months instead of 12. What is interesting about the Hebrew year 5779 is that the number 9 in Hebrew is a pictograph of a WOMB or a serpent. I find it amazing that this pregnant year is called a year of birthing by several prophets.

The months are counted in the Spring of the year because God told Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:2, ““This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.” Six months later the number of the year changes so they actually have 2 New Years – one that counts the months and one that counts the years. (Actually have 4 New Years on the Hebrew calendar)

The Hebrew calendar is Lunar and Solar so it has an extra month put in 7 times in 19 years. The Gregorian calendar is Solar so it adds 1 day extra every 4 years.

What is interesting is the Presidential elections align with the leap year on the Gregorian calendar.

Since President Clinton won the election there has been a leap year on BOTH Hebrew and Gregorian calendars the election that a New President is voted into office.

  • 1992- Bill Clinton
  • 2000 – George W Bush
  • 2008 – Barak Obama
  • 2016 – Donald Trump
  • 2020 – Presidential election leap year on only the Gregorian calendar
  • 2024 – Presidential election leap year on both Hebrew and Gregorian calendars

President Trump has been prophesied to win re-election. Is this a sign? Watch and Pray.


Tomorrow is February 29, 2016 on the Gregorian calendar. That extra day in February makes this a leap year, which happens every 4 years.

The Hebraic calendar is the calendar that God created in Genesis 1 and the Jews were entrusted to keep this calendar accurate. This calendar adds an entire month 7 times in 19 years.  In a leap year the month of Adar would be called Adar A (Adar 1) for 12th month and Adar B (Adar 2) for the 13th month. This has also known as a “pregnant year”.

Tomorrow is 20 Adar A, 5776 on the Hebraic calendar, making this a ‘pregnant year’. It is very unusual for both calendars to have a leap year at the same time. I have looked back a few years and 2008, 2000 and 1992  were leap years on both the Hebraic and Gregorian calendars.

2016, 2008 and 2000, 1992 were all Election years in the United States.

  • 1992 – George H Bush vs Bill Clinton
  • 2000 – George W Bush vs Al Gore
  • 2008 – Barack Obama vs John McCain
  • 2016 – ?

I am praying for this next president. Praying that God would not give our nation what we deserve, but that He would in His mercy give us a president after His own heart. May this year be pregnant with a president that hears God’s voice, who prays, who loves Israel and walks in integrity and rules in justice.

God help our nation come back to You, I pray You will start with me.


Next Wednesday night at sundown will begin the new year 5774 on God’s calendar. I say God’s calendar and not Hebrew calendar for a reason. 5774 marks the years since the beginning of the world as we know it since Creation. God never changes, His Word never changes, His promises never change, His love never changes and his ‘moedim’ (fixed appointed times) never change. We need to get into the rhythm of Yahweh’s timing because the End Time prophetic happenings will be on His fixed appointed days. (Did you notice that He was not moved by Y2K or the Mayan calendar?)

Last night we had an incredible Head of the Year meeting at Breath of Life International Ministries in Friendswood with Pastors Albert and Marcelia Anderson. Awesome! Worship Minister Michael Moses ushered us into a realm where it was easy to hear what Abba is saying for us this next year. Lavonne Chandler of Touched by Grace brought forth the prophetic word and it was off the charts awesome! I know that BOLIM will have those audio messages available for sale soon.

As Sister Lavonne was ministering, Yahweh spoke to me that this next year was pregnant with twins, double. On May 18, 2013 I blogged about 5774 being a leap year, which the Jewish call a ‘pregnant’ year.  This means that there will be an extra month of Adar and that Purim (the celebration of the  victory over Haman’s edict to destroy the Jewish people as recorded in Esther) will be delayed a month to Adar 2.

WHAT DOES PREGANT WITH DOUBLE MEAN FOR US? Today’s Torah reading confirmed what I was shown last night. There is a ‘double Torah reading’ and both have to do with choosing. The readings are Nitsavim (“You are standing”) Deut 29:9 – 30:20 & Va Yelech (“And he went”) Deut 31:10-20). We are in the 25th day of Teshuvah, turning back to Yahweh. Choose today whom you will serve.

  • 30:15, life and good or death and evil
  • 30:19, I call on heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have presented you with life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, so that you will live, you and your descendants (CJB)
  • 31:6, 7, 23, Be strong and of good courage- do not fear (we can choose to be strong or be in fear)

Last year was all about the camels coming loaded down with blessings for the Bride of Isaac, as recorded in Genesis 24.

This year we are entering into Genesis 25 with the “TWINS”,  Jacob and Esau, coming forth through the ‘door’ of the womb. This year we will see the fullness birth of blessings and cursing, life or death.

Many believers are asking the same thing Rebekah asked “If it is going to be like this, why go on living?” So she went to inquire of Adonai,  who answered her, “There are two nations in your womb. From birth they will be two rival peoples. One of these peoples will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”

Choose life no matter how you feel, choose to decree your future, choose to believe the report of the Lord. You are a prophet of your own future. No one can choose for you.

Just as the natural seed of Jacob and Esau has come to fullness as war is rising between the ‘twins’, war is rising with our promises. The enemy of Yahweh has a future planned for the Bride, but God’s promises are greater!!!! Satan may have been the god of this world, but Yeshuah won the victory and redeemed us to our place of dominion, washed us in His precious Blood to rule and reign as kings and priests unto the Most High God!

I decree and declare, “the older shall serve the younger”!!! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, may they prosper who love you.

Shabbat Shalom
