Astonishing! Previous post gets immediate double-confirmation!! (Global Prophecy Signal #50)

Symbolic of Holy Spirit's active power across the Atlantic

In republishing Ben Kay’s email in the previous post I couldn’t but conclude, “The Lord is getting our attention – has he got yours?” I wasn’t being flippant, simply stressing it’s well to give our serious consideration to what Ben had not planned on writing!

But I wasn’t prepared for the Lord immediately getting on my caseand doubly so!

It was about a geographical-cum-spiritual aspect I’d sensed – together with a totally unexpected reference by a reader to a hidden, textual attribute behind my reacting to and promoting Ben’s encouragement.

11.8.1999 SOLAR ECLIPSE, THE ‘MAYFLOWER’ and BRIDGE o’r POND

Ben states the total solar eclipse of 11th August 1999, “started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2,000 km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall…”

However, in watching the animated video of its passage and carefully noting the origin and path of the small dot representing the totality of eclipse, I was reminded of a concept I’d started blogging about 44 (11 x 4) months ago – Bridge over ‘The Pond’ – ie. an imaginary, supra-natural bridge linking Britain with North America used by Holy Spirit for delivering the same, or similar, teaching, messages or prophetic words on opposite sides of the North Atlantic ocean on the same, or next, day.

That sudden beginning of the ‘invisible’ moon’s effect upon the sun during daytime hours brings a brief glimpse into Isiaah 13:10…

For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not give their light;
The sun will be darkened in its going forth,
And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

Let’s take a closer look and analysis of that day’s event, courtesy of Google Maps

NASA/Goddard Flight Centre describes its path: ‘The last total solar eclipse of the 20th century begins in the North Atlantic about 300 km (190 ml) south of Nova Scotia where the Moon’s umbral shadow first touches down on Earth at 09:30:57 UT. Along the sunrise terminator, the maximum duration is a mere 47 seconds as seen from the center of the narrow 49 kilometers-wide path. No major landfall occurs for the first forty minutes as the shadow sweeps across the North Atlantic. The umbra finally reaches the Isles of Scilly off the southwestern coast of England at 10:10 UT (Figure 6 – below)

At this locale, it is already mid-morning with the Sun 45° above the eastern horizon… One minute later (10:11 UT), the umbra arrives along the shores of the Cornwall Peninsula. In the following four minutes, the shadow skirts the southern coast giving eager observers a brief taste of totality. Plymouth, the largest English city in the path, is north of center line and witnesses a total phase lasting 1 minute 39 seconds. London misses the total phase but experiences partiality…By 10:16 UT, the umbra leaves England as it quickly traverses the English Channel…Not since 1961 has the Moon cast its dark shadow upon central Europe…’ (emphases added)

I recall watching it from central Reading, noting the eerie effect of diminished daylight, but now I’m intrigued that the linked illustration could mirror the construction plan of a massive bridge – like Evgeni Denev’s ‘Endless Bridge’ shown above, the three circles shown in Fig 6 representing a bridge’s columnar piers.

North America’s New England and ‘New Scotland’ – all ‘Newly-Found-Land’

The ‘Mayflower’ was the English galleon that transported the first Puritans, known today as the ‘Pilgrim Fathers’, in 1620 from Plymouth (famous for its role in the sighting and defeat of the Spanish Armada) over the Atlantic to the New World. They were Bible-believing, ‘non-conformist’ Christians seeking religious freedom and tolerance far away from both Catholic and Protestant Europe in our American colonies. That event was the birth of a strong Christian bond that has grown between the UK and USA, despite all the differences in church-state relationships and theological emphases.

After a gruelling 10 weeks at sea, the Mayflower’s 102 passengers and crew of about 30 reached America, dropping anchor near the tip of Cape Cod on November 11, 1620. (NB. double number 11 in that arrival date: 11th day of 11th month, 400 years ago!! So maybe it’s of significance (see Footnote 2 of previous post)?

After hitting the ‘publish’ button for the previous post at 17:30 on Tuesday, I visited the post to hit ‘share Facebook’ button and thereby put it on my personal profile.

I was so amazed to note a response got flagged up within minutes, and upon reading the comment I got well and truly ‘God-smacked!’ It was directly related to what I’d sensed! AND from over the ‘Pond’ in Nova Scotia – Maxine Phyllis writes:

“Oh, thank God you posted that. I had forgotten all about it. August 11 was also the date of my wedding thirty years ago and the number 21 has figured prominently in my life. I connect it to the archangel Michael in the book of Daniel – he had to fast 21 days before receiving a visitation from Michael. Also, I was 21 years old when I first met the Lord in a powerful encounter outdoors, after a vehicle accident in the Yukon wilderness of Canada. I was amazed that I was unharmed and simply spoke out into the air ‘God are you there?’ Immediately an answer came and hit me like a lightening bolt – “I Am”. From then until now I’ve heard Him speak to me about Michael, and how Michael is needed to deliver the Church out of the influence of Babylon. Also, it is the archangel Michael who overcomes the devil himself along with the word of our testimonies from those who didn’t shrink back from death (and I would be one). Hallelujah for the Lord our God, the Almighty reigns!!”

Some minutes later Maxine commented along similar lines on the actual post itself. BUT what she – and other readers – did not know was her references to Archangel Michael are not only directly relevant but also validate Ben and my personal references to Luke 21:28!

How? Why? Nowhere within Luke’s record of Jesus’ prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem as well as End-time events is there any reference to angelic involvement. But now look fully at my dear mother’s Sunday Missal; of which page 67 only is shown at the close of the previous post for its highlit verse is the reason I immediately reacted to Ben’s quoting Luke 21:28 > >

The preceding page 66 is headed by Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to Michael the Archangel penned after a dread vision of God and satan on 13th October 1884 and the future of the Church. (This page completed the whole liturgy with Latin on left-hand-pages and English on right. Thenceforth, pages show Sundays sequentially in the liturgical year with illustration of the theme of each mass followed by relevant scriptures, as shown.)

NOW BELIEVE ME – I’m hurrying to finish this off for an early start to our weekend but THAT number 66 was also mentioned by Jonathan Hill when writing about number 11, (Footnote 2 of previous refers). Please understand that his following notes are NOT directly related to my above remarks and any anecdotal coincidence or meanings. His knowledge of Hebrew numbers is related purely to the scriptures, as developed in his two seminal books. In this week’s email referred to earlier, Jonathan writes:

“For a deeper understanding of these events, we need to know the biblical meaning of two numbers, the number ‘666’ which is associated with the final anti-Christ in Revelation 13:18 and the number ‘66’ – a less known biblical number. As it happens, the number ‘66’ is associated with ‘forerunner’ anti-Christs of 1 John 2:18 because of the Old Testament character Absalom who is a strong type of the final anti-Christ (because he usurped David’s throne). Absalom is first mentioned in the Bible in 2 Samuel 3:3 and this verse has a numerical value of 666 (Ordinal method). Moreover, the Hebrew name of ‘Absalom’, in this same verse, has a numerical value of ‘66’ Another important reference to ‘66’ in scripture is in 1 John 2:18 where the Greek words ‘even now’, as an adverbial phrase of time (regarding forerunner anti-Christs rising), have a numerical value of ‘66’ (και [20] νυν [46]).

“…11th triangular number is ‘66’ and so ‘11’s and the number ‘66’ are biblical markers concerning events closely preceding the Millennium and forerunner anti-Christs… Two notable forerunner anti-Christs (anti-Semitics and anti-capitalists) were Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden who both died a violent death exactly 66 years apart (to the day).”

Thus, an exceptionally intriguing ‘coincidence’ of a prayer for protection on a page 66.

THE LORD’S GPS

Readers know my thoughts on the Lord using His own GPS system, or Global Prophecy Signalling system. This 50th is an excellent example because the eclipse includes the locations of a couple of recipients of His ‘message’ – Ben Kay in Plymouth, Devon, is the first recipient, joint seconds are Jonathan Hill (W Sussex) and myself (E Hants) as I was reading his email about number 11 when Ben’s arrived, and Maxine over ‘The Pond’ in Nova Scotia, Canada, is fourth.

Doesn’t it make you wonder what awesome things are coming our way from the Lord? And perhaps how the 400th Anniversary of arrival of the ‘Mayflower’ in America may be of great significance in His plans???

To Him alone be all the Glory.

PS. Within 3 weeks along came 9 signals from both sides of the ‘Pond’, as shown in Last Week’s GPS on New Church also include USA & Canada (GPS #51).

‘God-incidence’ of 11 and 21st (3×7) anniversary of solar eclipse – “Look up for your redemption draws nigh!”

Not bothering to note today’s date, my intended online priority after the days morning tasks was to respond to a reference to number 11’s meaning by Jonathan Hill in his weekend email. BUT after opening my in-tray, what then dropped in from Ben Kay in Plymouth ‘God-incidentally’ highlights ’11’!! “ACE, absolutely brill Ben”, I immediately respond in my seeking his permission to copy; and so he puts it into perspective

“Glad that this email has hit the mark. It was interesting how it came about as I had no intention to write all these things until late last night when I sensed the Lord reminding me about the eclipse and prompting me to write an encouragement. It took a few hours but managed to get it sent out this morning thankfully. I meant to be writing… but sensed this interruption to my plans last night were from the Lord so decided to go with the flow…!”

Let’s ‘get in the flow’ of what the Lord’s indicating through Ben, as told under this title from Luke 21:28 (NB 7×3:7×4):

“LOOK UP…FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH!”

Good Morning,

Normally I simply send out dates and information about prayer meetings (such as the next PRAY UK meeting on 22nd August!)

However, this is a simple encouragement to keep pressing on when you may be feeling the pressure of life… to keep on looking up when you might be feeling down…and a reminder that we are held in the palm of the One who holds the whole world in His hands.

‘…I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me…Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 3 vs 12-14)

Last night, I remembered that today is a special anniversary for those in Devon and Cornwall who, 21 years ago today, witnessed the magnificent spectacle of the 1999 solar eclipse.

Indeed, you may have seen the special marker that was placed near Plymouth Hoe (by the cannons on Madeira Road) to remind us of this special moment. It is in the shape of a cross on the pavement.

‘X’ marks the spot where at the 11th minute of the 11th hour of the 11th day of August 1999, the sun was turned to darkness and the moon turned a blood red colour above Plymouth and the surrounding region, and there followed 2 minutes of eerie darkness in the middle of the day, before the light of the sun broke through once again.

As I look back on this day with a sense of awe, I’m reminded of who it is that not only created the earth, the moon and the sun but actually brought them into alignment and scheduled this special moment at the beginning of time. For no solar eclipse randomly happens but each one was timetabled from the moment of creation.

‘And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years…”‘ (Genesis 1:14 KJV emphasis mine)

By all accounts (eg. Wikipedia’s Solar Eclipse of 11th August, 1999), this was a special eclipse. This was ‘one of the most-viewed solar eclipses in the whole of human history’ and the first that could be viewed from the UK since 1927.

As illustrated therein, the total eclipse started in the Atlantic (not far from where the Mayflower’s Pilgrims first settled), speeding across the ocean at around 2000km/h before making landfall, crossing both Devon and Cornwall. Interestingly, the eclipse then went from here to have an impact on the rest of Europe as well as parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia…2 billion people in all!

There are many prophetic words that have been spoken about the region over the years indicating that God is about to do something special. Given that an eclipse can also be defined as an ‘over-shadowing’, perhaps God’s Spirit is brooding and getting ready to bring forth ‘fullness of life’ in this region as expressed in John 10:10’s  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.

Furthermore, perhaps the precise time and direction of the eclipse over Plymouth and the region indicates that an end-time revival of great magnitude is coming that will have an impact on multitudes throughout the nations.

But if life is tough right now, perhaps we just need to hang in there. In the natural, there is much pressure on a baby in the birthing canal just before it is born.

‘We are pressed on every side by troubles, but not crushed and broken. We are perplexed because we don’t know why things happen as they do, but we don’t give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going.’ (2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9 TLB)

God is in control, even though we may feel everything is out of control.

‘and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose’. (Romans 8 v 28)

Not all things are good…but in all things, we trust God is working things out for our good and birthing His purposes and plans in our lives.

When we’re in the thick of it, sometimes it is hard to see the bigger picture.

Perhaps this recent prophetic word from Veronika West entitled, ‘It’s Time, Destiny’s Clock is Ticking‘, will serve as an encouragement to ‘look up’ at this time and keep ‘watching and praying’…

Here’s an excerpt from this relatively short word:

‘So stay watching and praying in these days, as the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow upon the threshing floor of the Nations. Listen and pay close attention! Tick, tock, tick, tock…the sound of destiny’s clock can be heard in the realm of the Spirit. Do you hear it? Are you ready? Are you aligned and rightly positioned? Are you walking in time with My Spirit?

Beloved…See! For this is a kairos time…an appointed time in the earth…a time of divine Shifting, Sifting, Scattering and Separation has surely begun…for the Nations at a divine tipping point are now being Shifted…the wheat and the tares are now being Sifted…Yes!…and the demons of hell are now being Scattered and the goats and sheep Nations are now being Separated…Watch! As the Winnowing Winds of My Spirit now blow forth upon the Harvest fields of the Nations…Beloved, Get ready!!

This follows on from a recent dream Veronika West had in June 2020 (Hourglass of End-time Harvest).

Veronika explains, “This dream came with such an urgency of the times and the need to begin to cry out for the nations of the earth who are in the valley of decision. I believe this dream speaks to the 11th hour. A kairos time in the earth. An appointed time of the End-time Harvest!”

The details of the dream and Veronika’s interpretation take a little longer to read than the above prophetic word…but it is well worth reading and reflecting upon.

The dream concludes with the following words:

“Watch and Pray! For but a little while longer the Golden Revolving Door of The Ages and of Eternal Destiny stands open before the nations. As the days of My Grace and Mercy are poured out upon the nations, watch! For the time is here, for the 11th Hour Harvesters will herald the birthing of a new great awakening on the earth!”

Veronika’s dream reminds me of an encounter I had with God after attending a prayer meeting at Plymouth Christian Centre back in 2012. I was left with a clear sense that we’re living in the closing age of time before Jesus returns for His bride.

Read more about this ’11th hour’ encounter HERE in Why ’12am CRY’? and listen-read-watch RT Kendall explain more about ‘What is the Midnight Cry?’.

Anyhow, this has now turned out to be a much longer email than originally envisaged, so I’ll finish here with a couple of verses encouraging us to rouse to the reality of the time we are living in…

‘Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah). The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armour of light. (Romans 13 vs 11-12 AMPC)

Every blessing,

Ben Kay

RB Footnotes:
  1. I wrote Ben, “Not only does your Luke 21:28 header tie in with scripture relating to the night Jesus visited me (and thus the First Sunday of Advent, celebrating His Return – as illus. below), but also and in depth, today’s date of 11th ties in with the details of an email I want to reply to later after returning home.”
  2. Jonathan Hill, author of Unlocking the Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return, remarks in his recent email upon the Biblical meanings numbers ‘11’ and ‘12’: ‘The number ‘12’ represents the governmental perfection of Israel in the Millennium (12 tribes of Israel etc.). Number ‘11’ precedes ‘12’ and speaks of ‘anticipation’ of Millennium. As part of the Biblical Watch, ‘11’s appearing in global events/signs before the upcoming Millennium may, therefore, be part of this anticipation and signify events which closely precede the Millennium. The 11th hour warning of Armistice Day 1918 (11th hour of 11th day of 11th month) is one such sign’.’
  3. In referring to ’11’ and ’12’ Jonathan has ‘God-incidentally’ connected into Ben’s message on today’s date of 11th as 21st anniversary of the solar equinox at Plymouth – as well as into his calling at 11th hour on 7.9.2012 (see 12am Cry). (Also, 21 = 7 x 3.)
  4. And just as intriguing: I find yesterday’s total number of views on this website is two twelves, ie 1,212. MOREOVER, ‘two twelve’ was the number of my childhood home where that Visitation in 1989 was located!

CONCLUSION: THE LORD IS GETTING OUR ATTENTION – HAS HE GOT YOURS?

PS: Two ‘GPS’ confirmations were immediately received, as recounted here.

God’s numbers in July’s blood moon (Fulfilled Prophecy #38 cont’d)

This third guest post by Jonathan R Hill continues with the fulfillment of the prophetic word for 2018 of the gift of understanding special numbers, as used by the Lord and  reviewed here. This article recaps previous points to introduce very compelling facts pertaining to modern British history: 

BLOOD MOON 27th JULY 2018

The celestial event of this lunar eclipse is warning of a coming divine judgement upon a godless Europe.

A record-registering heatwave across Europe, breaks in the UK on the day of this blood red moon. The UK’s nationwide evening thunderstorms and rain, halt the intense heat. The heatwave across Europe speaks of the heat of divine judgement as confirmed by the red colour of the moon.

The United Kingdom has been marked by the Lord for interventional dealings and, as will be explained, these dealings of the Lord with the UK, are regarding ‘escape’. In scripture, the Lord uses triangular numbers to mark individuals or bodies of people with whom He will interact. The triangular number 153 is a prime example as representing the completed church at the point of rapture or ‘escape’.

Queen Elizabeth II was crowned queen of the United Kingdom and all commonwealth  countries in 1953, a number which is the 62nd triangular number and in which the digits ‘1’, ‘5’ and ‘3’ appear. Significantly, Elizabeth was crowned on the 153rd day of 1953, namely the 2nd June. Moreover, on this day, news comes in that the commonwealth climber Sir Edmund Hilary has conquered Mount Everest, confirming this day as a ‘high’ day in global history. In this way and by His grace, God has marked our nation with 153 or ‘escape’. The true personal faith of our sovereign queen has acted as a testimony of God’s involvement.

From what is the UK escaping? The next triangular number which mathematically follows 1953 is 2016. This is the year of the Brexit Referendum which marks the ‘escape’ of the UK out of the European Union. The earlier ‘escape’ of 33 individual Chilean Miners was the first ‘escape’ witnessed by the world. The second is a national escape out of the EU block of 28 nations with 5 in accession (33 nations), also witnessed by the world. Both escapes signify the global escape of the church at the Rapture. Individual, followed by national concluding with global, appears to be the divine signification of ‘escape’. The number of days between these ‘escape’ events is important because it contains the relevant triangular numbers. In the case of Brexit and the Chilean Miner rescue, there are 33 x 63 separating days, where 33 is the biblical number of ‘living witness’ and the 63rd triangular number is 2016, the year of the Brexit Referendum.

The relevance to this discussion is the number of days between the blood red moon of July 27th, 2018 (BRM) and the Brexit Referendum, which is 5 x 153. The number 5 denotes the grace of God upon the nation of the UK, in permitting an ‘escape’ from the EU and the upcoming judgement. BRM is also 12 x 3066 days from the Balfour Declaration regarding the restoration of the nation of Israel. Perhaps this British declaration somehow factors with the divine grace gifted to the UK. The number 12 represents the governmental perfection of Israel and 3066 is the Hebrew gematria of Isaiah 53:10, which speaks of Messiah seeing His seed (believing Israel) in the Millennial Kingdom.

Many in the UK are unable to observe this celestial warning, because of obstructing cloud cover of the breaking weather. In a sense the UK has escaped the ‘heat of judgement’. In contrast, the blood red moon continues to shine down on mainland Europe.

RB Footnote: Regarding exceptional global temperatures and wildfires, it’s worth noting the prophetic insights within the second letter of the  Apostle Peter, wherein the third chapter begins:

‘Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.

8 ‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 ‘But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [d]burned up11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.’ (NKJV)

The mystery of the seven stars

Thank you Jo for this heavenly scriptural meditation. May all who read be deeply blessed…

The Kingdom

It’s winter here in New Zealand and Matariki, the Maori New Year.  Matariki is marked by the appearance of the Pleiades Star Cluster.  In the night sky, the Pleiades can be spotted with the naked eye as a dim cluster of stars above Orion’s left shoulder.

Matariki-southernFor the Maori, Matariki literally means “eyes of God” (Mata Ariki) or “little eyes” (Matariki.)  They’re not far wrong, for the prophet Zechariah, writing about his vision of a lampstand with seven lamps, tells of the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth.

“Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?” Zechariah 4:10

Job 38:31-32 declares that only the Lord can ‘bind the chains of the beautfiul Pleiades’ and bring them forth in their season.

23rd Sept’s Revelation 12 ‘sign’ a breakthrough for many more

After co-hosting the special celebration of Feast of Trumpets at Church of His Presence over last Friday-Saturday, pastor John Kilpatrick shared his ideas on the significance of the ‘radiant woman’ alignment in the heavens. First, however, he told of a bald-eagle having been on their porch and then circling over and following him whilst driving around the property.

Also, his iPad had been lost for 3 days and turned up on the dashboard of his wife’s locked car, even though they and others had looked there! (At Revival Alliance UK 2017 Bill Johnson reported accounts of missing objects turning up mysteriously. The same thing happened to one of Nina’s brooches – she opened the box but it had disappeared; we searched everywhere and when we looked days later it had returned to the box!!!)

“Listen, it could be a sign – I don’t rule out anything that God can do”, says John. “The Bible says He uses foolish things to confound the wise…

“I believe that the Lord’s showing us that things we couldn’t find or things that have been lost, things that have been taken from us, are all of a sudden going to start popping back up

“On Friday I was talking about the next day (Saturday 23rd) when, as the Bible says, a great sign will appear in the heavens. When I said that, here’s the thought that rushed through my mind:

It’s going to be a sign that will open up many other signs – it will be the beginning of many signs

“A great sign (punching his hands) is a sign of a breakthrough that will bring about many other signs. Usually if there’s something big that happens (again punching hands) it punctures through and what’s been clogged up begins to filter through.

“So I’m believing that God is going to restore what the cankerworm and the palmerworm and the locusts have destroyed – I’m believing God to restore!”

“It could be, it could be that we’re about to enter into one of the greatest seasons of restoration that we’ve ever known! Matter of fact – I just proclaim that:

“Lord, we believe that we’re going to go through a season of restoration, restoration of children, restoration of marriages, restoration of health, restoration of revival.

“Lord, we believe for the restoration of mundane things and restoration of important things. We release it out and speak it out in the Name of Jesus! Let it be so in His Name…”

Watch and be blessed by the first five of minutes of the above video for fuller details leading into John’s prophetic insight.

Finding unity concerning the ‘End-Times’

Thank you Wanda for this helpful reminder upon our needing to ‘keep the main thing the main thing’, as Bill Johnson often stresses.

wandaalger.me

In recent months, there has been growing speculation about signs and symbols in the heavens and escalating world events predicting a soon and coming Rapture and Great Tribulation. At the same time, there is also a growing segment of the Church that isn’t looking for a Rapture, but a great spiritual Revival with the best days of the Church still ahead.

There are well-known and respected leaders on both sides of the issue. Best-selling authors and several key evangelical leaders have been prominent proponents of the Rapture interpretations. The Left Behind series has had a huge impact on the Church. Yet, John Wesley, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, and many of the church fathers including Josephus, believed the “Great” tribulation that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:21 already happened within the first century church.

These differences of biblical interpretation have been around for decades and they will probably continue…

Three days’ prophetic jigsaw pieces: #3 – 23rd Sept and Revelation 12

Since the time of the four blood moons (2015) I’ve made a couple of passing references to the ‘radiant woman’ of Rev 12:1-2 and its manifesting tomorrow, 23rd Septemeber:

‘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 labour and in pain gave birth.’ 

If you haven’t yet heard about this event the above video by Parable of the Vineyard is very helpful, concise presentation of what’s happening. Featuring software showing the positions of planets within the constellations of Leo and Virgo it can easily be paused for closer examination and appreciation of the star charts.

In view of today’s splendid alignment of sun, 11% crescent moon and four planets along Virgo we must understand the astro-dynamics. The stars comprising Virgo are at the opposite side of the sun, which during the last 30 days has seemed to have been going ‘downwards’ through the imaginary figure of this constellation, as though dressing ‘her’. Thus, as our sun arrives at the Autumn/Fall equinox, Virgo has been ‘clothed with the sun’, not with it at her shoulder as some surmise!

In THE SHAKING: watch for signs on earth and in the heavens I referred to Revd John Kilpatrick’s exposition upon this subject. First, he teaches about the Lord’s Feasts to enable an understanding of the background and timing of this exceptional event. From 1:57:00 point of the following video link he explains the difference between astrology and astronomy and goes on to talk about the meaning of Jewish year 5777 (now just closed). At 2:07:00 he refers to it being a year some Jews are expecting the Messiah to appear, and that “out of all the years this is the three sevens…it is a year of triple completion and according to many Jews they have always said year 777 will be the year of their messiah”.  If you may have time and inclination to watch tap/click this image and scroll to 2:07:40 to learn about ‘The Radiant Woman’:

Watch Revd John Kilpatrick teach on Rev 12 from 2:07:40 mark

Pastor John follows the dispensational, pre-tribulation school of thought and I’m not entirely convinced that the Rapture will precede a period of the Great Tribulation, but certainly before our extremely patient, long-suffering Father releases His Wrath. Being mainly an American evangelical theological approach some of that school have thought it opens up the possibility of the Rapture happening now!

But its exact timing is not important – the real necessity is to be prepared for the Lord at any and all times.

For those who prefer to read text rather than watch a talk I recommend these articles, especially if you like theological discussion in Nelson’s comments threads:

Nelson concludes his mini-series, “Although astronomical signs of Rev 12, the Woman and Dragon, in the fall of this year are interesting and have caught the public’s attention, it is doubtful they mean anything at this point. However, if biblical prophecies begin to be fulfilled in the next 30 days, all of us should straighten up and take notice.” 

Thus, I informed him about the ‘Peace Day’ and 1Thess5, to which he replied, “That certainly is interesting Richard. I don’t take it as fulfillment yet..” and kindly gave me a couple of references to check as he thinks the Day of the Lord will be towards the end of Daniel’s 70th Week.

In few posts covering the blood moons of 2105 I referred to this celestial event and the two-year lead-in period, about which I’d forgotten and thus wasn’t part of my musings in #1 of this mini-series. If you have time and inclination you may wish to scan-read my:

God’s bookends – a guest post

I’m grateful to Mark Maddock for offering these thoughts as a ‘conversation starter’ (his words) on the current signs of the times: 

GOD’S BOOKENDS

Introduction

God has given us signs in the stars (including planets) at key times in human history (‘…let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years.’ Gen.1v14)
Perhaps the most significant of these was the patterns of stars and planets seen by the Wise Men (Magi) in Babylon, ahead of Jesus’ birth. There was then a delay while they travelled to see the prophesied king of the Jews. He was not a new born when they met him but, of course, Jesus came to die. So perhaps the key time period is that from the sign in the stars appearing up to the culmination of the life of the man at the centre of the message. I believe the Father said to me “These signs are bookends…”.

If there is a pattern to be repeated at the end of the age we’re living in then it may give an indication of what lies ahead in the coming years.

A ‘bookend’ is used either end of a collection of books. The collection of ‘books’ in this analogy is all the stories of God’s grace and love moving around the world throughout the church era. This began with Jesus’ death and resurrection, and ends with Jesus’ return to reign and rule on planet earth. Both bookends have clear links with the first and last prophetic fulfilment of the vision of the woman in Revelation 12.

BOOKEND DATES

The first bookend : Jupiter and Regulus in a coronation dance in Leo, near Virgo*
Jesus’ birth sign length: Sept 3BC to June 2 BC (or Oct.?) **
Jesus’ birth after X months: 9 months
Jesus’ death/resurrection (Y years): 30 years later (26-27AD)
(See: The Star of Bethlehem for more details)

The second bookend : Jupiter in Virgo’s womb (Rev.12 fulfilled fully…)
Jesus’ return sign length: Jan to 23rd Sept 2017
X months : 9months
Add Y years (to Jesus’ return?): 30 years (2047)
And, add Daniel’s 70th Week ?: 7 years (2054, the day/hour unknown)
(See missionary evangelist Robert Breaker’s Sept 23, 20177 video for more details)

DANIEL

Where did the Magi get the wisdom to correctly interpret the sign in the stars? Some say that Daniel stayed in Babylon when the Jews returned to Israel in the sixth century B.C. Perhaps he established a school of prophets who passed God’s wisdom about astronomy from generation to generation. These men probably knew of Daniel’s prophetic writings which can be used to predict Jesus’ birth, the rebirth of the nation in 1948, re-capture of Jerusalem in 1967 and whatever events await us in 2018 (probably centred around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem). Perhaps there is an overlap of the 23/9/2017 star sign (Jupiter being ‘born’ from the virgin, Virgo) and the end of Daniel’s chronological predictions in 2018 (see Richard D Thompson’s ‘Almost Midnight’ for an explanation of this chronology).

There was ‘messiah fever’ around the time of Jesus’ birth based on Daniel’s prophecies. The message in the stars was all about Israel’s king arriving. It fits in that, about 2,000 years later, a sign appears again which is all about a king being released from Heaven. If there is a delay of 30 years (or 37 if Daniel’s 70th Week of years is included) then that speaks of God’s grace… delaying judgement for a season.

Many people missed Messiah’s first arrival, life and misinterpreted his death and resurrection. We need God’s wisdom about the correct interpretation of the signs in the stars in our generation.

*
1. The first conjunction signified birth by its association to the day with Virgo “birthing” the new moon. Some might argue that the unusual triple conjunction by itself could be taken to indicate a new king.
2. The Planet of King’s coronation of the Star of Kings signified kingship.
3. The triple conjunction began with the Jewish New Year and took place within Leo, showing a connection with the Jewish tribe of Judah (and prophecies of the Jewish Messiah).
4. Jupiter rises in the east.
5. The conjunctions appeared at precise, identifiable times.
6. Herod was unaware of these things; they were astronomical events which had significance only when explained by experts.
7. The events took place over a span of time sufficient for the Magi to see them both from the East and upon their arrival in Jerusalem.
8. Jupiter was ahead of the Magi as they traveled south from Jerusalem to Bethlehem.
9. On December 25 of 2 BC as it entered retrograde, Jupiter reached full stop in its travel through the fixed stars. Magi viewing from Jerusalem would have seen it stopped in the sky above the little town of Bethlehem.

(From: Star of Bethlehem – Westward Leading)
**
Jesus’ birth date
From R Smith’s comment Dec 24, 2012  on The Star of Bethlehem – To Stop A Star :
God’s word does a great job of interpreting itself in many many cases. God ties things together for us to clearly see what He is telling us, and how He works, if we just use proper hermeneutical practices and let His word speak. First, regarding when these “lots” as drawn were to start would go back to Aaron and Moses when the Tabernacle was first built in the wilderness. Due to the Exodus from Egypt, their calendar was to thus begin in Nisan, the month of the Passover. So the descendents of Aaron would start the new year at that time and thus the “lots” would also would also start at that time. The story of Zachariah and Elizabeth immediately brings to mind the story of Abraham and Sarah. They are extremely similar. Zachariah and Elizabeth were well past the age biologically to have a child as were Abraham and Sarah. When Abraham was 99 years old we read in Genesis 17 that God promises him to have an heir through Sarah. Abraham and Sarah doubt God, Sarah even openly laughs. Abraham says, shall a man of 100 become a father? Zachariah in Luke doubts God as well and is struck dumb for his unbelief. In Genesis, after the Sodom and Gomorrah story unfolds in Genesis 19, we get back to Abraham and God saying he would have a child. In Genesis 21 it states that at the age of 100 Abraham and Sarah had a boy and named him Isaac. So obviously Sarah became pregnant very quickly after God told Abraham, at 99 y/o, that she would have a child. This parallel story between the OT and NT clearly leads the reader to the conclusion that Elizabeth would have gotten pregnant just as quickly as Sarah. God was ready in Genesis to pass the promises of Genesis 3:15 from Abraham to Isaac, and with Sarah of an advanced age, God acted quickly once the appointed time came. So also in Luke, God was ready to bring the Messiah into the world, so his fore-runner, John the Baptist had to be born. With John’s parents being also of an advanced age, God again acted quickly. Theses stories are mirror images of one another and for a reason. God is showing that when such appointed times arrive, He acts quickly. In Luke 1:55 when Mary arrives at Elizabeth’s home, Mary even ties together what has happened to her and Elizabeth by comparing it to the promises made to Abraham, thus uniting the OT and NT stories together. This adds more powerful hermeneutical evidence that God is repeating the miracle of Sarah again in Elizabeth. So we have ample Biblical evidence directly pointing us to conclude that God is repeating history. Sarah had her baby within a year, so I have no difficulty seeing God telling us that Elizabeth likewise had her child within a year. In the Companion Bible, an extensive study Bible with lots of notes and research, it calculates the dates for the service of Zachariah as being in June each year, for his one week. The dates I mentioned of June 13-19 was for the year 5 BC in the Companion Bible. But each year it would just move slightly within that period of June. This dating takes into account the weeks when all the Levites would be serving in the Temple, since the lots drawn were for weeks when just one Levite would be serving and performing the priestly duties by himself in the Temple. So I am convinced John was conceived in June 4 BC, Jesus 6 months later in Dec 4 BC. The triple conjunction as explained by Mr Larson in the Star of Bethlehem DVD, I think was announcing the birth of Christ in Sept/Oct 3 BC. Nine months later the brilliant star created by Venus and Jupiter I think was the spectacular sign needed to get the Wise men moving and on their way to Jerusalem, with them arriving sometime between Jesus’ 1st and 2nd birthdays.

Footnotes:
  1. Am editing Mark’s paper whilst listening to Robert Breaker’s video. It’s a tad indistinct as I focus on this, but suddenly clearly hear him mention a ‘two year’ period re Star of Bethlehem: it’s something I’ve been pondering in regard to my draft summary on Rev 12 and other scripture being prepared for publication!
  2. My initial observations: as Jesus has already been incarnate then it’s illogical to assume any time-frame of 30 years yet again for coming to earthly maturity – and then add Daniels’ 70th!  +
  3. He said He will be returning in full glory – and Paul knew we would be like Him (ie ‘heavenly  man’) and accompany Him from heaven post-‘Rapture’. +
  4. A good friend of a fellow team-member at Acorn in her 80’s is assured Jesus will return in her lifetime. Also, Paul Keith Davis walked past me about 10 years ago and, glancing at me without halting, said “Await His return!”
  5. Mark responds:
    I agree His return may well be earlier. I’ve (earlier) mentioned ‘Almost Midnight’ by Richard Thompson.. he gIves a strong biblical chronology case for 2018 being a next key waymarker; possibly then leading to Daniel’s 70th week? Bob Jones and Ian Clayton both refer to life here in the 2050s… so adding an end-time version of Jesus’ earthly life (= the church living as mature sons (as per Clayton) and/or the bride making herself ready) may link with the 2050s references (although Clayton is a non-Rapture guy).
    The ‘bookend’ concept can still apply if the extra 33 years are ignored…

On the significance of Monday’s total solar eclipse across USA

Supermoon Monday’s ‘Blood Moon’ and the ‘Age to Come’

Red Moon Chart, credit Mark Biltz

In connection with Monday morning’s lunar eclipse, or ‘blood moon’, it’s opportune to meet an unfulfilled promise relating to prophetic words and teaching heard in April. In fact, their relevance relates to an insight I’d been blessed with on ‘The Age to Come’. Also, references to the work of OT prophet Daniel resonated with a personal prophetic word. (Publicly delivered, it’s available to read here.)

Therefore, it’s appropriate to look first at scriptures relating to that implicit waiting and looking forward to fulfilment of the Lord’s promised plans – even if in the far future!  I’ve  emphasised the parts relating to visionary-auditory revelation:

On Faith – Hebrews 11

‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible…

‘By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”;  for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. [Genesis 5:21-24 ‘All the days of Enoch were 365 years. And Enoch walked with God and was not found…’]

‘But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

‘By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.

‘By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.’ (verses 11-13 omitted)

‘For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.

‘But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.’

The Book Beyond the Bible

At an inter-stream conference in March 2011 in Winchester, King Alfred’s capital of Saxon England, the Lord drew my attention to the unwritten book hiding behind my Bible’s back cover! That is, it comes after The Apocalypse, or Revelation, given to Jesus Christ for showing to and recording by His close disciple, the Apostle John.

As noted in Revival 1: glory stories, I sensed in worship that the Lord wants me to focus upon the eventual new earth and new heavens, especially the appearance from heaven of The New Jerusalem. That is, to not only be involved in and understand the times of His return, but also and more importantly to focus upon His ultimate aim for the Church, as in Revelation 21-22 and its implicit existence and purpose beyond the Bible’s cover!

That pre-blog email recounts subsequent encouragements for understanding that this all relates to ‘The Age to Come’.

2015 Feast of Tabernacles’ Blood Moon

Monday morning’s event was the fourth consecutive eclipse occurring on the first and last Jewish feast days on two subsequent years, as in the above chart by pastor Mark Biltz. So he described them as a ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’.

I recall his friend William Koenig referring to their discussions of 2007-8 on this, contrary to John Hagee’s false claims of later discovery; as disclosed here.  Mark’s research into NASA’s astronomical data may be read in Blood Moons: Adding Up The Evidence.

Now to expand upon what I blogged on Monday about Charlie Shamp’s position on that day’s blood moon.:

There was much new intellectual and spiritual food to digest from the Passover/Easter weekend conference reported here. I’d hoped to have shared some as the concluding part to ‘God-incidents’ validate cycles and point to the near future wherein I refer to 40 and 55 year cycles. The intention was to share something of what Charlie taught and connect it to what I was given and started noticing about 70-year cycles in connection with what he said about a specific date. (Sticking his neck out there!)

Charles_Brynn_Shamp_250px[1]How that conference started after worship is told in A vision: Sowing into the Kingdom of God. Whilst amazed at what I’d seen, I heard him refer to blood moons and correct the public misunderstanding gained from some sensationalist American journalism. As reported earlier, he believes Monday’s 4th blood moon marks the beginning of the time the Army of God will start appearing.

Charlie posits a two-year period starting on Monday 27th, in which we’re going to begin to see people who’ll be able to pray from within the Age to Come. Why two years? He explains,

“It leads to 23rd September 2017, which reveals something very special that we’re going to hear a lot about in coming days.

It’s a two-year period in which God is going to see how much He can trust you – because everybody wants to do the stuff, everyone wants to be able to work miracles – but how much can God actually trust you with that?”

To indicate what he means by this – and its spiritual importance – Charlie referred to God making Moses ‘as a god to pharaoh’ (Exodus 7).

“In other words He said to Moses; ‘I’m going to make you My mouthpiece, My oracle – that you’re not going to do anything out of line other than what I tell you’…

“So along with that revealing is a testing period…an emerging of  a generation, which I believe that God is offering to everybody, but there will be a company that actually walk into this!

“It’s a crossing over of a Melchizedek-type priesthood with its kings on the earth…”

In answering his “Why September 23rd 2017?” I’d have told of its personal significance. Instead, he answers by talking about the prophet Daniel, whom he thinks could enter the ‘heavens’ and live in the future. There, he learnt about astronomical events for the time appointed for the Messiah’s birth in Bethlehem.

Accordingly, Daniel could see that ‘star’ and bequeathed this knowledge to his school of Magi, as well as arranged in advance for them to present specific gifts to the Christ-child. That is, Daniel was living in and operating out of the Glory of God within ‘The Age to Come’!

Then, teaching from Revelation 12, Charlie considers how this scripture suggests the very same zodiacal configuration and alignment known to Daniel set for Jesus’ birth – will be once again be of astronomical significance on 23rd September 2017. (Not as a Venus-Jupiter conjunction I’d assumed; see NASA’s Sky Events 2017 calendar.)

For details of the astronomical alignment and biblical significance read a brief blog by Mark Conn published in January 2014: Revelation 12, Blood Moons and April 2014. (Note that Charlie would agree with the opening caveat re astrology. Mark makes very brief references to a possibility of the Tribulation – June 2014 saw ISIS sweep across Iraq with an extensive, barbaric persecution of Christians.)

VenusandJupiter 2015UPDATE: for details and significance of Venus-Jupiter conjunctions in 2015 see Nelson Walters’ post on Star of Bethlehem Repeats Again This Week in The Gospel in the End Times. It’s interesting that this biblically erudite blogger whose work I’ve previously drawn attention to, appreciates the importance of astronomical events.

More…

Spiral stairway to cloudsAnother of Charlie’s comments that plugged into what I’d done only recently was his saying the Jewish Temple had two spiral stairways. This reminded me of my selecting the image of a double-spiral and describing a spiral staircase to depict the corkscrew nature of Time itself in The ‘Endgame’ gets ramped up another level. That was a sensitive week or so in blogging, as explained in the subsequent part 2, to which this post acts as a successor.

On the final day of the conference Charlie spoke about the astronomical situation at the start of Islam, about which I’d been blogging – our eyeballs locked as he addressed me personally when talking about it! (How did he know? Did Holy Spirit tell him?)

Assessment

In our weighing this inspirational teaching let’s look at pertinent points of what Charlie published on New Year’s Day under Prayer Points for 2015-20. I’ve found the first part to be accurate (as underlined), as may be inferred from several of my blogs. So I have a confidence in the possible accuracy of subsequent part’s promises (as reported above):

The Seer Anointing Intensified (extract)

‘The Lord spoke to me and said that this will be a year that the seers are coming into their multi-dimensional sight. A new realm of the prophetic will be birthed this year. In January many prophetic people will enter into a season of incubation for greater manifestation. The Lord showed me that from January to September will be a time of preparation for what is going to be birthed towards the end of September after the final blood moon on the 28th of that month…This nine-month period will be a time for the conception and forming of a supernatural movement to be birthed into earth…

‘There will be a birthing of a greater glory at the end of September. A place of unusual power will begin to flow towards the end of 2015 like we have never seen before. Many will begin to taste of the age to come. There will be a prophetic people that will begin to emerge toward the end of next year that will speak a wisdom that is not of this world. They will manifest a message from an age to come. They will transcend the system of the world and operate from a higher order of the supernatural. A Daniel company is coming! This will be a company of prophets who can discern our times with pinpoint accuracy. Some will be given high places to speak into earthly governments around the world. They will have a mandate from The Lord to administer justice and solve complex situations that human intellect can not understand.’

A scriptural context of the 4th lunar eclipse of the ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’

[Readers to whom this concept is new are directed to explanatory material in Passover and blood-red moons, which is continued in 500th post – itself a useful review for new subscribers.]

In the Book of Joel, chapter 2 verses 28-32, the prophet receives a word from the Lord that was famously fulfilled on and after the feast of Pentecost whereupon God’s Holy Spirit was poured out on Jesus’ first apostles and disciples:

Charlie ShampOn Good Friday last we heard a novel, positive prophetical exposition on the scriptural meaning of the blood moons. At the Passover-Easter conference referred to earlier, Charles Shamp shared his interesting insights the gist of which is as follows.:

This year’s Passover-Easter with its blood moon, he offers, was the opening up of a significant time and season that may, however, have elements that could be used as satanic strategy.

“I’m seeing all these (American) books about doom and gloom; ‘the four blood moons’… ‘the Apocalypse’…’The Antichrist’ – but you know that actually the blood moons reveal the Army of God…

“They’re not teaching that; they’re teaching that the Antichrist is coming to take over the world – but when you read the Book of Joel, the blood moon actually reveals the Army of God.

“We’re standing at a strategic time right now. Actually in September – the 27th – is going to be the fourth blood moon. No it’s not going to be the Antichrist – it’s actually going to be a revealing, of the beginning, of the Army of God.

“You know, the Bible says the heavens declare the Glory of God – not the destruction of God, not the doom and gloom of God – but the Glory!. The heavens show us His Glory. They show us signs that don’t point to death but point to life!”

That is, Charlie considers that the fourth blood-moon over this Sunday-Monday, starting the Feast of Tabernacles at sundown Sunday, is going to open up the beginning of the time of the Army of God. He believes this weekend will actually begin a two-year period where we’re going to begin to see people who are going to pray things from the Age to Come. Thus, the next two years until September 2017 are going to be very special, not judgmental and destructive.

So we shall see. We can soon check the accuracy of such thoughts on this matter…

Why this September is special – 1: weather & schedule

Readers having a birthday this month already know it’s special 🙂  A couple of weeks ago after reading Economic crises as Shemitah year draws to a close, Tony remarked, “September seems to be a month that things will be happening”.

So I quipped, “That’s why it’s my birthday month Tony! Although not into astrology I used to joke I get the better deal with a birthday on the cusp of two constellations – even better in 2017”.

Joking apart, this particular September is highly significant for at least three reasons.

  1. international events of eschatological relevance. (If new to this topic see brief follow-up post upon launching this blog – Not many people know this…)
  2. the current Shemitah Year 5775 closes on Elul 29, Sunday 13th September.
  3. the last of the current Blood Moon Tetrad occurs as a ‘super-moon’ on Monday 28th September or Tishri 15, first day of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles.
UNPRECEDENTED WEATHER

In keeping with the Orthodox Church, Pope Francis declared yesterday as World day of Prayer’ for the environment “offering our contribution towards overcoming the ecological crisis which humanity is living through…”  The pope said September 1st would give people “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation”.

As John Kilpatrick remarked on that news in Could this be a September to remember?,  “Wow, we really need that…What about the Creator?”

Stewardship is one thing but it would it have been better praying for global repentance from our increasing inclination towards evil.  Why not emulate Anne Graham-Lotz’s Sept 1st call for Daniel 9 repentance and prayer for peace of Jerusalem and Middle East?

September started with an unprecedented occurrence of three Category 4 hurricanes in the Pacific ocean – a sign of things to come rather than ecologically caused? (Climate-warming science remains discredited.) US Weather Channel reports the hurricanes represent something of a leap: three concurrent Category 3 hurricanes have not yet been recorded. (Category 5 is highest.)

3hurricanes (NASA))

The Atlantic too has an unprecedented hurricane over the west African archipelago of Cape Verde. Monday’s Category 1 hurricane Fred was the first to hit Cape Verde since 1892 and the easternmost hurricane ever to have formed in the tropical Atlantic!

As for our Bank Holiday Monday washout, it’s nothing unusual but we don’t normally get persistent northerly winds. A fortnight’s rain fell that day and sunny Bournemouth on the south coast has had its wettest August on record. But three weeks earlier a forecaster – not Met Office – expected us to “bake in hottest August in years” – abysmally wrong!

[UPDATE 3rd Sept: UK Weather: ‘Polar plume’ = icy conditions this weekend –  figures for August show Wales & SW England at 70% above average rainfall, SE and central S (here) almost double, with Sussex its wettest August since 1946. The UK had wettest summer ever despite predictions for a dry, hot season!! Met Office chief scientist Prof Dame Julia Slingo said, “Seasonal forecasts for this summer suggested temperatures and rainfall would be near normal. However, as the season progressed all the leading models around the world failed to capture the signal for unsettled weather over the UK. We all know that forecasting months and seasons ahead is still in its infancy and much more research needs to be done!” See Soggy Summer was impossible to predict, says Met Office.]

So who’s in control? Definitely not mankind – but ungodly folk think we’re to blame. In a way they’re right but not for the popular, mythical ‘climate change’ reasons.

A SEPTEMBER SCHEDULE

For information, here are some forthcoming public events that may be of eschatological relevance. (Thank you to William Koenig [WK] accredited Christian journalist at the White House and editor of World Watch Daily and to Revd John Kilpatrick [JK] senior pastor of Church of His Presence.)

First, however, a doomsday prediction needs to be corrected:

Comet strike? – NASA says nothing will be remotely near earth. [The Guardian]

Wed 9th Sept – A re-established and self-declared Israeli Sanhedrin is calling U.S. President Barack Obama to trial for what it says are “criminal offenses” against the Jewish people following the passage of the Iran nuclear deal. [Breaking Israel News exclusive – The modern-day Jewish high court, made up of 71 Judaic scholars and rabbis, plans to bring the American president to trial on Mount Zion on Sept. 9, 2015, four days before Rosh Hashana, the beginning of heavenly judgment days for the Jewish nation – WK]

Wed/Thu 9/10th Sept – US Congress expected to vote on Obama’s Iran deal. A final vote could take place on Friday 11th Sept before the Rosh Hashanah holiday. [WK]

Fri 11th Sept – 14th anniversary of the World Trade Centre and Pentagon terror attacks and last day of trading on New York Stock Exchange before end of the Shemittah. In Could this be a September to remember? John Kilpatrick points out:

“The twin towers concept was proposed in the Shemitah of 1945, it was begun in the Shemitah of 1966, it took 7 years to build it, dedicated in the Shemitah of 1973 and destroyed in the Shemitah of 2001!

“What’s going to be called The Freedom Tower, now  known as ‘One World Trade Centre’, is the new building there and on September 13th there’s going to be a partial solar eclipse.” [from 3:08:50 mark]

Sat 12th Sept – Recently, a  leading authority in mainstream ultra-orthodox Judaism, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, has been giving clear, unequivocal messages the coming of the Messiah is imminent. He is urging Jews to make aliyah as soon as possible (which refers to immigrating to Israel), which is seen as higher spiritual action that can help usher in the coming of the Messiah. When asked about the timing of the Messiah’s arrival, Rabbi Kanievsky answered, “At the end of the Sabbatical year”. Several people have asked the rabbi to verify this, and he has given the same answer each time. This year is the Sabbatical year and it will end on the 29th day of Elul—which in the Gregorian calendar falls on Saturday Sept 12 (sic), 2015. [Breaking Israel News – WK]

NB: See my blog on Rabbi Kaduri’s secret, Who are the Jewish people expecting…?

Sun-Tue 13-15th Sept – Rosh Hashanah, Jewish civil new year begins at sundown 13th September. Partial solar eclipse.

Sun 13th Sept or Elul 29 – The last two Elul 29s at the end of Shemittah years produced two of the largest Dow Jones sell-offs in history. 2001: $1 trillion— est $1.4 trillion was wiped out in five days of trading. 2008: $1.2 trillion was wiped out. [WK]

Mon 14th Sept – First stock market trading day after end of Shemittah.

Tue 15th Sept – UN General Assembly convenes for 70th General Assembly. [WK, JK – who comments as follows:]

“It’s reported there may be a plan to introduce a resolution that will give formal UN approval, and formal UN Security (Council) recognition for a Palestinian state – recognising Palestine without Israel negotiating a Palestinian state at all – it will be done in spite of them (and to spite Israel RB). Will US veto this? My guess it’s doubtful.” [at 3:10:20 mark – emphasis added]

Wed 16th Sept – Congressional deadline to approve the Iran nuclear deal.[WK]

Sun 20th Sept – Sanhedrin to put Pope Francis on trial…he will be judged in absentia. In February 2013 the Vatican officially recognized the “State of Palestine” but, more significantly, the Vatican signed a treaty in June with “Palestine” in which the Holy See switched its diplomatic relations from the PLO to the “State of Palestine.” This treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and, as such, constitutes an official recognition.

Mon 21st Sept – Hajj to Mecca begins and UN International Day of Peace [JK]

Tue 22nd sundown to sundown Wed 23rd Sept – Yom Kippur and the beginning of the final year of the Jubilee. [WK, JK: this Jubilee year’s calculation isn’t definitive.]

Tue 22nd Sept – Pope Frances arrives in Andrews Air Force base for ‘2015 Apostolic Journey of Pope Francis to the United States of America’. [Schedule – WK]

Wed 23rd Sept- Autumn/Fall equinox.

Wed 23rd – Pope Francis to visit the White House on Yom Kippur. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the Pope and President Obama will discuss a broad range of issues including poverty, the environment, religious freedom and immigration. [WK, JK offers a fascinating observation based upon the scriptural notation of 360 days in a prophetic year:]

“360 days times 49 years is one Jubilee period = 17,640 days. From the date Israel got Jerusalem back on June 7 1967 to September 23, Day of Atonement, is exactly 17,640 days.

“That’s the day Pope Francis visits the White House. He’s the 226th Pope visiting the president on the 226th day of the Gregorian calendar.

“Many wonder if something’s being birthed because that’s the gestation period of the human – it’s 226 days.” [3:13:10]

Thu 24th Sept – Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress—the first time the head of the Roman Catholic Church will have done so. [WK]

Fri 25th Sept – Pope Francis is to speak to UN General Assembly and expected to discuss climate change encyclical, and speak on the Vatican’s support of a Palestinian state, the plight of the those in poverty, inequality, and more. [WK]

“Interesting to note that on May 14th 2014 French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius claimed, “We are, all of you know it,  on the edge of climatic abyss. In fact, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos”. It’s interesting that time frame of 500 days is up on September 25th, the very day the pope is to address the UN on climate change.” [JK 3:17:20 – emphasis added]

Fri-Sun 25/27th Sept – UN Summit for adoption of the post-2015 development agenda will be held in New York and convened as a high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly. [WK]

Mon 28th Sept – UN General Assembly begins its annual debate until 3rd October. One of the main subjects usually is the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Arab countries use this as a time to bash Israel publicly. It is also a time where the leaders of Israel have recently pointed out dangers posed by Iran. [WK]

Mon 28th Sept –  first day of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles) and super blood-red moon over Jerusalem and the Middle East. This will be the fourth one in the past two years. The first was on the first day of Passover 2014, the second on the first day of Sukkoth in 2014, the third on the first day of Passover 2015 and this will be the final one in the tetrad. [WK]  (Note: Previous three were not fully visible in Israel.)

Steering clear of conspiracy theories John had already mentioned the idolatrous display upon the Empire State Building of the Hindu goddess Kali (black one, force of time and change and destruction). He went on to refer to the Large Hadron Collider at C.E.R.N. in Europe, the logo of which is made up of three sixes – 666. Its HQ’s exterior displays an image of the Hindu deity Shiva, or destroyer, and experiments searching for a ‘God particle’ are expected to start this month. It is posited by scientists that its operation could open up a gateway into another dimension and John refers to the Tower of Babel, which is reputedly supposed to have had such a portal.

John says that idol’s identity is the same as ‘Abaddon’ (Hebrew), or ‘Apollyon’ (Greek), in Revelation 9:11 and the ‘Son of Perdition’ (Grk ) in 2 Thessalonians 2:3. He doesn’t, however, refer to what I’d read in SIGNS by Neil Mackereth (as here) about the Tower of Babel being the inspiration behind the design of the European Parliament (click this image for full details):

Watch Could this be a September to remember? from 3:08:00 mark for fuller details of some of the above items. Better still, listen to the whole teaching which, at 2hours 10 minutes length, is quite thorough in briefly covering the Lord’s own feasts, evidence of past Shemittah and Jubilee years and the four deeply defiling, abominable national sins which the Lord has dramatically judged in the past, and thus is soon expected.

In part 2 we consider a couple of the above events from a prophetical perspective and a couple of updates cover Judaism and Islam.
