Leviticus 19:23, ‘When you come into the land, and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count their fruit as uncircumcised. Three years it shall be as uncircumcised to you. It shall not be eaten. (24)  ‘But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, a praise to the LORD. (25)  ‘And in the fifth year you may eat its fruit, that it may yield to you its increase: I am the LORD your God.’

Trees are mentioned several times in the Bible, for many different things. In the Garden, there was a Tree of Knowledge  that they were never to eat from. The Tree of Life they were to eat from and live forever. The Olive Tree was used to tell Noah that it was time for Noah to prepare to leave the Ark.

Psalm 1:3,  speaks of a blessed man, “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”

Trees can represent nations. Jesus said in Luke 21:29, “Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees”. The Fig Tree represents Israel and all the trees are the Last Days nations of prophecies.

  • Vine represents Israel’s Spiritual Privileges
  • Fig Tree represents Israel’s National Privileges
  • Olive Tree represents Israel’s Religious Privileges

2018 and 2019 saw SUPER BLOOD MOONS on Tu B’Shevat, both years! The astronomers call the ‘triple’ super moons a “Grand Coincidence”, but they were not ever looking at the spiritual significance. This was like a ‘giant stop sign in the heavens’, a sign to the Church to understand the times we are living in right now.

The Triple Super Moons of Dec 3, 2017, Jan 1, 2018 and Jan 31, 2018 were all extremely prophetic.  https://mbostrom2.com/2018/01/21/supermoon-triad-1-of-3/, https://mbostrom2.com/2018/01/31/super-blue-blood-moon/ . The last of the 3 was a Super Blue Blood Moon on Tu B’Shavet, the New Year of the Trees.

The Triple Super Moon of 2019 was the first of 3 super moons in a row and was called a SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON. And it was on the New Year of the Trees! https://mbostrom2.com/2019/01/18/super-wolf-blood-moon-of-2019-pt-1/, https://mbostrom2.com/2019/01/19/super-wolf-blood-moon-of-2019-pt-2/

So what prophetic nations of the Last Days are we supposed to be watching? The next war on God’s Day Timer is found in Ezekiel 38, known as the Gog and Magog War.  Russia, Turkey, Iran are the main nations and are currently in the news every day!

Luke 21:29 (VOICE) (continuing with a parable) “Look over there at that fig tree—and all the trees surrounding it. (30) When the leaves break out of their buds, nobody has to tell you that summer is approaching; it’s obvious to you.”

Summer is the hottest part of the year, and symbolically represents extreme presence of danger, times of war.

 

 

This was the third Super Moon of the Triad. They were back-to-back starting December 2/3, 2017, January 1,  2018 and January 31, 2018. This was highly unusual and caused many of us to “Wake Up” and  “Look Up!” My husband and I viewed this heavenly appearance from our front yard. Below is a photo from my iPhone Sky View app. You will see the moon is HUUUGE and it is in the claws of Cancer, the Crab. We sat in our car with the seat warmers on because it was a beautiful 45 degrees her on the Gulf Coast of Texas. The sight was beautiful but we never had a view of the Blood red color of the Eclipsed Moon.

Cancer the Crab according to E.W. Bullinger’s  classic book, The Witness of the Stars, tells the story of “Messiah’s redeemed possession held fast“. This sign connects with the Tribe of Issachar, whose tribe is known for an “understanding of the times”. I Chronicles 12:32, “From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.” (NLT)

Below is the second photo of the night I took at 6am CST. It is Libra, the Scales. Bullinger wrote this represents “The Redeemer’s atoning work, or the price deficient balanced by the price which covers.” The Hebrew name is Mozanaim, “the scales, weighing” (Daniel 5:27) Balanced in Libra’s weights is Jupiter, which in Hebrew is Tzedek, and means ‘righteousness‘. This is the King planet, representing King David and Israel. Below Libra is the planet Mars. In Hebrew it is Ma’Adim,  “the red one” and historically has been known as the Planet of War by the Romans and Greeks because it was named after their god of war.

Jan 31 2018 The Scales Jupiter and Mars

What is the full significance of these heavenly appearances? Libra with Jupiter and Mars is not as unusual as the Super Moon Triad, but still amazing to see the heaven’s declare the glory of the Lord. Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made.” (God’s Word Translation)

As we get closer to a prophetic happening, the signs in the heavens will be bigger and closer together, just as when we travel by auto to a destination.

The third moon of the Triad of Super Moons has caused a world-wide stir to look up into the heavens. I think the greatest significance is how it fell on the Hebrew New Year of the Trees, Tu B’Shevat or the 15th of the month of Shevat. This new year can be found in Leviticus 19:23-25, ” When you come to the land and you plant any tree, you shall treat its fruit as forbidden; for three years it will be forbidden and not eaten. In the fourth year, all of its fruit shall be sanctified to praise the L-RD. In the fifth year, you may eat its fruit.

Israel is symbolically referred to as the fig tree, Hosea 9:12, Jeremiah 24:3-10; 29:16-17. In Matthew 24:32-34 and Luke 21:29-32, we see Jesus pointing to signs in the fig tree (Israel) and the other trees (prophetic last days nations).

Jesus told us several times to Watch and Pray, but never does He tell us to speculate. I will continue to watch the signs in the heavens and praise the Creator who planned the greatest story in the Universe, named each star and set each course.
