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.

There will be a Super Full Moon August 10, 2014 at 2 P.M. EDT. (Not a Blood Moon) This Summer is very unusual for the fact there are 3 super moons in a row. The first was  July 12, next will be August 10, and last will September 9.  This astronomy event is called a ‘perigee moon’, when the moon is closer to the earth and the new or full moon appears to be larger than normal. Perigee means ‘closest to the earth’.

What makes the event of August 10 spectacular is that it will become full the same hour as the perigee moon. NASA says this makes it an extra-super moon!

Eve of Tu B’ Av Super Moon – This is the 15th day of the Hebraic month of Av. The 9th of Av is the saddest day of the year and the 15th of Av is known as the happiest. I find this incredible that this “extra-super moon” this year will happen as the evening begins a new day over Israel. This is called  of the “Day of Love”, the “Jewish Valentine’s Day“. Below is the historical events of the 15th of Av.

  • On the 40th year in the Wilderness they realized that no one had died on the 9th of Av that year.  Great celebration began as they realized their wandering days were over and the death sentence for the rebels was over. (Numbers 14:26-38)
    • Yom Kippur symbolizes God’s forgiveness to Israel for the sin of the Golden Calf
    • Tu B’Av symbolizes the forgiveness of believing the evil report of the 10 spies
  • The Talmud records that many years ago the “daughters of Jerusalem would go dance in the vineyards” on the 15th of Av, and “whoever did not have a wife would go there” to find himself a bride. (Chabad.org, Ta’anit Chapter 4)
  • On this day ban of only sons inheriting the Promised Land property given to their Tribe. (Nu 36:8-9). This ban was lifted on the 15th of Av after the first generation that entered the Promised Land under Joshua.
  • Judges 19-21, the Tribe of Benjamin was prohibited from marrying daughters outside their tribe because of the incident of homosexual Benjamites raping the Levite’s concubine.  This led to 25,100 men from the Tribe of Benjamin dying in on day (20:35) The few remaining Benjamites were allowed to take one of the dancing virgins on the 15th of Av, as the virgins danced in white in the forest.
  • During the Second Temple period, wood was rare and had to be brought from far away. The last day that wood was brought for storage over the winter months was Tu B’ Av and then they would celebrate, breaking the ax and burning it.
  • 132 BC, Simon bar Kokhba led a revolt against the Roman Empire. On Tu B’Av, the Romans permitted the bodies to be buried. MIRACLE- God had preserved the 100,000 bodes of the brave men from decaying in the summer heat from the 9th of Av to the 15th of Av.

FYI- The Tabernacles Blood moon of October 8 will be 5 times larger for viewing than April 15 Passover Blood Moon.

2015 there will be 6 super moons! WOW! September 28, 2015 will be a Super Blood Moon that will be seen over Israel during Tabernacles.
