12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;2 and she was with child; and she *cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
Revelation 12 relates a sign that will appear in the heavens. Significantly, it is a sign that is associated with the Geulah, Redemption! It is a sign that has only happened once in the history of the world, September 11, 3 BC and it will happen only again once in the foreseeable future/next couple thousand years. The picture below is from free astronomy software, Stellarium, seen from Jerusalem at sunset on September 23, 2017. Interestingly, this is on Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets. Take a look at the picture below and tell me what you see…. Continue reading “There shall be signs in the heavens….”
As we were touring parts of Israel in the days prior to the Second B’ney Yosef National Congress, I found myself, more than a few times, looking forward to talking to BYNA Elder Mark Webb who I knew would be in attendance. As Father’s plan would have it, Kelly and I were seated at the same table with Mark and Pollyanna the very evening we arrived at the Eshel Hashomron.
Mark is a gentle giant that I had the pleasure of meeting last year at the First Congress and have gotten to know better at each step along the way. While speaking with him on a cool March evening outside of a Thai restaurant in St Petersburg before the BYNA Summit, I learned that he and Polly are avid students of astronomy and the signs that appear in the heavens. Knowing that he has really believed for some time that 2017 is a significant time period, my immediate question, once caught up on each other’s lives and families, was to ask what new things he has been seeing and what his current thoughts are regarding eschatology.
Mark did not disappoint. Because there were several other couples seated at the table who may not have been aware of Biblical astronomy and the Hebrew use of the mazeroth, Mark began with some quick background and examples, such as Daniel, for studying the stars. Then, he shared a HUGE piece of information. Continue reading “There shall be signs in the heavens….”
A couple weeks ago I blogged about current signs in the heavens and the brilliant testimony to our King! In the first article, I linked to an excellent article by Dr. Dale Sides about the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter and possible significance. Well, he has another excellent article with still more details as he considers the fact that we have a TRIPLE conjunction with other events occurring simultaneously that all are probable Messianic announcements!
This is the second Passover in a row with a potentially VERY significant and ominous blood moon in the sky. As we have discussed before, the planet is in the midst of a Blood Moon Tetrad, a series of four blood moons within a two year timespan. Amazingly, this is one of the extremely rare times that all four fall on the major Feasts of Yehovah (the Lord). Last year, Passover and Sukkot with the identical pattern again this year. Even more interesting was a total solar eclipse that just occurred on the first day of the Hebrew calendar and the midpoint of the four blood moons….
Following is an interesting article from Israeli news titled,
A mystic rabbi living in southern Israel is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches.
Rabbi Amram Vaknin, who similarly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, and Operations Pillar of Defense (2012) and Protective Edge (2014), warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time.
One of Rabbi Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the sage, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States.
Vaknin predicted that the 44th president would bring bloodshed (dam) to the Jewish people. It should be noted that the rabbi made this prediction before President Barack Obama’s election to office.
Vaknin believes that only 44 plus one, or 45, can counter the danger represented by the blood moons. This, he says, is Adam, or Man, which in this case refers to the Messiah.
Very interesting and definitely bear watching. The prophet Joel warns of signs in the heavens before the great and terrible day of Yehovah. May we draw near to Him and His Messiah as we enter the secret place.
