“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.” – Rev. 12:1,2
This sign was seen in the heavens in September, 2017 as the Sun was under the head of Virgo and the Moon was under her feet.
In November of 2016 the planet Jupiter entered the constellation Virgo and went into retrograde. Because of its large orbit compared to earth’s, Jupiter appears to be moving back and forth called retrograde motion. It continues in this retrograde motion until September 23, 2017, a period of 42 weeks minus 1 day, which is a normal human birth cycle, when it leaves Virgo on its trip to the constellation Taurus. Just above Virgo is the constellation Leo which has 9 stars. At this time there are also 3 planets just below Leo, Mercury, Mars, and Venus, thus making the 12 stars that form Virgo’s crown.

In 2015 I wrote an article named The Blood Moons and Psalm 83 in which I highlighted the warning of the prophet Isaiah and of the deteriorating conditions in the Middle East –
“The prophet Isaiah also describes a similar event before the coming of the Lord: “The sun will be darkened in its going forth, And the moon will not cause its light to shine.” (Isaiah 13:10). Both of these events, the sun being darkened (solar eclipse) and the moon turning blood-red (lunar eclipse), are being displayed right now in the Blood Red Moons Tetrad of 2014 and 2015. The fact that the solar eclipses happen on Nisan 1, the beginning of God’s Biblical calendar, and on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets and the beginning of the Jewish New Year, give warning to Israel to prepare for war and warning to the nations that their judgment is near. Given that these are extremely rare occurrences and will never again happen in our lifetime we should pay attention to them as warnings from God Almighty.” Continue reading
One sign that we are nearing the end of the age is the joining of Jew and Gentile in the Body of Christ. As Paul wrote to the Ephesians –
“Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;” – Eph. 2:11-19 Continue reading
In my last post, Zechariah Speaks to our Day, I highlighted God’s plan; (1) to restore Israel, (2) to restore Jerusalem, (3) and to restore His House (Temple). As Jonathan Cahn shared, over the last three Jubilees, beginning with the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and ending with President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem being the capitol of Israel in December, 2016, the first two parts of God’s plan have been fulfilled. All that remains is the restoration of His House. I used the beginning chapter of the prophet Zechariah to highlight this plan but, I want to especially point out several facts that I didn’t cover in the first posting –
“And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.” – Zech. 1:15,16 Continue reading
Tomorrow, January 31, 2018 a very special sign will be seen, a Super Blood Red Moon that is also a Blue Moon, which hasn’t been seen in over 150 years. The following video explains what this is –
This Super Blood Moon will occur on the Jewish Festival Tu B’Shevat, a holiday for embracing new beginnings. It is also the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This day marks the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. It also is the time when God inspects the trees to see if they are bearing fruit. Throughout Scripture mankind is likened to trees and God inspects them as John the Baptist taught – Continue reading
The Season of Joy
October 4th to October 11th this year is the celebration of the final Feast of the Lord, known as the Feast of Tabernacles (heb. Sukkot). All the Feasts of the Lord are prophetic but, this year especially so as Tabernacles this year represents a jubilee (50 yrs.) from the retaking of Jerusalem, 1967 to 2017.
Christians are beginning to learn more about the Feasts of the Lord and their prophetic nature as divine appointments by God to meet with His people. But, I believe we yet have more to learn so I want to re-publish some articles I wrote earlier about them and I hope they are a blessing to you. Feel free to share them as you wish.
These three articles highlight the Feasts of the Lord and their prophetic meaning for us today. They are ‘dress rehearsals’ for the coming of the Lord and contain valuable clues to its timing. I pray you take the time to prayerfully read them.
Worldwide Mass die-offs of birds and fish
Since 2010 there have been strange and never before seen signs happening, both on earth and in the heavens. Turtles and fish washing up on beaches dead for no apparent reason. Birds in droves dropping from the sky and cattle and buffalo dropping dead overnight. These events happened all over the earth and they continue to happen, even though the news media has grown tired of covering them. Then there are the strange booms coming from the ground and eerie sounds in the sky. All of which science seems to have no answer, so they conveniently forget about them. No one now can deny the Continue reading
