Like my Mentor Germaine Copeland I heard “Be Still!” I didn’t hear the whole verse…but I know it…”and know that I AM GOD!” I love it! In the midst of all this topsy-turvy world…and I don’t mean just our earthly circumstances…I mean the world we really are of…the Kingdom. We are awaiting our coming LORD!
I know there is more than one strong opinion about what we can all sense in the air! Even our children…or distant relatives…any and all our friends that have heard Biblical teaching in their life…or seen a movie…or even those in the other nations worshiping differently than we do…well there is something going on in our skies…and in our weather…some climatic changes…some famine where there’s been food…and some food where there’s been famine…flooding, snowing, storms, fires…I mean the earth is rocking and reeling and shaking and quaking!
At this moment I’m in Florida…and in communication with my prayer warriors in Georgia and in South Carolina and Texas…even this morning. I’ve also been in communication with sons…and grandgirls…and sisters…and cousins…and friends at home and here in FLA!
I know I’m blessed and I love to share what God has done for me and with me. I also am not perfect…just ask anyone that has known me well…lol! But today as I’m vacationing…and that also means for me working beside my husband of 46 years…and much is chaotic in the news all the time…both on TV…whether CNN, Fox, CBN…or on face book or other websites…as I keep up with the world’s-goings-on a lot. This ministry on facebook allows me to pray with people who are on my News Feed…and those who chat with me…our friends.
In the midst of all of this, my sister’s BFF sent me a message on messenger yesterday and asked me about the BLOOD MOONS…
I talked about the Blood Moons here when I went to the movie done with John Hagee. It was a memorable occasion for me as it was my last time to see my oldest nephew…another story. I was made aware of the 4 Blood Moons that night…dates and what was being said by Jewish Rabbis as well as John Hagee.
It was an interesting night. I had just read the Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn and already aware that September 13, 2015 at 6pm Israel Time ended the Shemitah year…the last year of a 7-year pattern. Rabbi Cahn…the Rabbi of the largest Messianic Jewish congregation in the world also said that the beginning of the next year…the New Year …was the beginning of the 7-year pattern…beginning with Rosh Hashanah.
Now, that my friend called me…and asked…and because my answer to all is “I may not know but I’ll do my best to find out”…I did some research. When she called she was headed to her Bible Study and I was expecting a bff for dinner. I had not thought about the movie…the Blood Moons…though I was watching for the Jewish New Year.
I was reminded of the following. There have been 4 Blood Moons in the last 2 Jewish year. Notice these facts:
A Tetrad of Blood Moons:
It is possible for a Lunar Eclipse to occur twice a year when the sun and moon are 180º apart in the sky and close to the celestial equator. If a total Lunar Eclipse occurs four consecutive times in a row, it is called a Tetrad. When this happens you will have four lunar eclipses occurring about 6 months apart covering a period of time of one and a half years. Tetrads can occur a number of times in one century, while other centuries will have no Tetrads.
*2014-2015 Voila! Here we are in History! This is the 10th Tetrad!
*1962 Supreme Court ruled no prayer in schools.
1972-1973 *1973 Supreme Court declared unborn citizens do not have the right to life.
2014-2015 *2015 Supreme Court changed definition of marriage.
* Four Blood Moons (lunar eclipses)…2014-2015…all at feast times of Israel
These 2 events speak to us from Joel!!
*September 28th is the 2nd Blood Moon this year and the 4th in 2 years.
Today…and until I see more clearly through this veil…
I now have to correct what I’ve been praying. Researching has corrected me…I’ve been believing this is the year of Jubilee…not understanding why I thought Jubilee was 50 …and remember being taught that somewhere…but the patterns of 7 from my research since Harbinger makes sense.
This article gave the scripture and explained so clearly for me that this makes more than sense! The article is called Jubilee Year Cycle (49 or 50?)
I translate this with my knowledge at this moment that September 13th will mark the end of the Shemitah year…a year of Sabbath rest for the land…and the New Year…5576 and our year 2015-2016…marks the Year of Jubilee.
The most wonderful part of this article explains the first of this blog to you. I had been hearing “Be Still”…and Germaine this morning says “Be Still”…confirmation of 2 witnesses of why not to panic…Church! He that hath an ear let him hear Holy Spirit speaking.
When we don’t know when or what to do…we are always told to Be Still. When disciples were looking up as Jesus left …they were told what are you standing here for? They had received instruction to wait in Jerusalem…and what happened? Pentecost!!! Wooo Hoooo!!!!
Whatever you believe happened to believers or how…all of the Church believes it was important! Sadly most Churches make much deal out of Pass-over and not much over Pentecost. Passover comes in like a LION…at least the Resurrection part does…but we simply don’t get it about the importance of Pentecost…to the Jews and to the Church!
This same article clears up so much! I knew there were 50 days involved from Pass-over to Pentecost. Our Problem in the United States and most of the Church worldwide…we have not understood the importance of dates. We celebrate the birth of Christ…in December…the end of our Gregorian calendar year…and Easter moves with the moon.
We have to look at a Jewish calendar to appreciate the exact dates of Pass-over and Pentecost. I did not know until reading this article last night that Pass-over is always on Saturday…and Pentecost is always on Sunday. Remember our day really begins in the evening…6pm to 6pm. We may get up and celebrate with baskets and eggs and go to Church…but Pass-over was from 6pm Sat…to 6pm Sunday. Pentecost from 6pm Sunday to 6pm Monday.
I see that we have come to the end of the 10th Tetrad (2014-2016 …a 2-year cycle)… where the Shemitah comes at the end of 7 years and the Jubilee begins. Since both are sabbatical years…Shemitah and Jubilee… we have 2years to work in this vineyard. I believe much trouble is going to go on in the nations but I believe that our hearts of gratitude and worship will make the difference.
I have decided to follow Jesus! O how loooonnnnngggg ago was it that that became my theme song! Though none go with me!! It was seemingly words at the time…but the more I sang it…it penetrated my being! If I follow the LORD, they will come! If I keep turning around…like Lot’s wife…I’m not worth more than the salt she turned into! Going on and lighting the Way is what it’s all about! Woo Hoo!!!!
Today I follow Him into India. I am at my desk in my office every day…but my heart is in India…and I talk to India most days! The LORD has not told me to slow down or keep still regarding our mission to take India in Jesus’ Name! Amen and Amen.
