Now let’s see if we can confirm the year of Christ’s second coming.
prophecy 26) *Psalm 104:19 “He made the moon for the festivals (mo’edim): the sun knows the time of its coming.”
The Sun’s total radiation output is approximately equivalent to that of a blackbody at 5776 K. Jewish year 5776 starts at sunset Sept 13 2015 “the sun knows the time of its (the sons) coming”.
*Genesis 1:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as SIGNS (owth) to mark SEASONS (mo’edim) and days and years”.
“Seasons” from Strong’s concordance #4150 The original Hebrew word, which has been translated as “seasons” in this text, is mo’edim. Mo’edim and its singular form mo’ed are also literally translated in Scripture as “feast(s) of the LORD”. In the Strong’s Concordance (#4150), mo’edim means “a fixed time, an assembly, appointed time, congregation, and a solemn feast.”
*Leviticus 23:1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals (mo’edim), the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies (miqrah).
The feasts are rehearsals, like a wedding rehearsal (miqrah-Strong’s #4744) for the wedding of the Lamb (Jesus) to his faithful and true. The Jews/Israelites have been rehearsing the feasts of the LORD namely, the spring feasts, Pentecost and the fall fall feasts, they have rehearsed these on God’s holy days (mo’edim) for thousands of years as shadow pictures of good things to come.
*Colossians 2:16-17 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. *Hebrews 10:1 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. *Hebrews 8:5 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven
Quite literally the rehearsals the Jews do on the LORD’s feast days are prophetic and shadow or show us God’s plan of redemption, actually and emphatically the LORD’s feast days are his plan of redemption. Notice these are the LORD’s feast days, not the Jews feast days!
*Leviticus 23:1 ‘These are My appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the LORD
*The word for “sign” in Greek is semeion Strong’s #4592 a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature, of signs portending remarkable events soon to happen. Signs in the Hebrew, is owth Strong’s Concordance #226 an indication especially ceremonial or supernatural, omen, warning, miracle, sign, token, wonder
*Luke 21:25:27 “There will be SIGNS in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory”
Note: A “day” equals one year in bible prophecy.
*Isaiah 61:2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God.
Jesus read and fulfilled 1/2 of Isaiah 61:2 in Luke 4:18-19 during his 1st coming: “to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” and will fulfill the part he did not read: “the day of vengeance of our God” at his 2nd coming. This “day” will be one year long and it will go from the feast of trumpets to the feast of trumpets, this year is the 7th seal in the Revelation.
*Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.
When the apostle Peter quoted the above prophecy from Joel obviously he was saying these things have just taken place. We know from the gospels and history that when Jesus was hanging on the cross the sun was darkened for 3 hours, but what about the moon being turned to blood? Well the gospels do tell us that Jesus sweat was like drops of blood, the word blood in Luke 22:44 is from the Greek haima and has a meaning “of the color of blood”. Jesus having died in 31 AD we can see from NASA there was a blood red moon on April 25th at 11:02 pm which was a Wednesday. The blood red moon would have given Jesus’s sweat the colour of blood fulfilling Joel’s prophecy at the time of Christ’s first coming. And now the prophecy of Joel will show us the second coming and the day/year of the LORD as also indicated by Rev 6:12 below.
*Revelation 6:12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red. *Zephaniah1:14-16 The great day of the LORD is near- near and coming quickly. The cry on the day of the LORD is bitter; the Mighty Warrior shouts his battle cry. That day will be a day of wrath- a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness- a day of trumpet and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the corner towers.
Zephaniah1:14-16 is supposed to take place on Tishri 1 according to the “calendar of events” (see Tishri 1)
prophecy 42) *Does the “year” starting Tishri 1 5776 (Sept 13 2015) confirm the “perusia“, ”day/year of the Lord” and of “Jacob’s trouble”, followed by the last trump (on feast of trumpets) and the great trump (on the day of atonement)?
*Blood Red Lunar Eclipses and Solar Eclipses on God’s Holy Days in 2014-2015. Astonishing as it seems, four total lunar eclipses called a tetrad (God’s name “YHWH” is also written as a tetrad called the tetragrammaton meaning “word of 4 letters”) will occur on God’s annual Holy Days during Passover and the feast of Tabernacles in the years 2014 and 2015, and two solar eclipses on Nisan 1 (Jewish new year) and Tishri 1 (Jewish fiscal new year and the Feast of Trumpets)! These are exceedingly rare occurrences, especially when they dovetail with God’s Holy Days!
There was a blood moon tetrad after Israel became a nation in 1948 during 1949 and 1950 then again with the recapturing of Jerusalem in 1967 then1968 saw another blood moon tetrad, all on Passover and the feast of Tabernacles.
According to the Jewish calendar, the year 2008 was a Sabbatical year. The Sabbatical cycle we are in now began September 29, 2008 and 2015 will be the next Sabbatical year followed by a Jubilee year.
The Lunar eclipses break down as follows:
1)Passover April 15, 2014
2)Feast of Tabernacles October 8, 2014
3)Passover April 4, 2015 (this is to amazing: it is on the 4th day of the 4th month it is 4 minutes and 44 seconds long, it is the 4th shortest eclipse in the last 4 thousand years, the 3rd of 4 eclipses)
4)Feast of Tabernacles September 28, 2015
The two Solar eclipses connected with God’s Holy Days in 2014-2015 occur:
1)Nisan 1 (Jewish religious new year) March 20, 2015 (this also just happens to be the day of the spring equinox)
2)Feast of Trumpets (Jewish fiscal new year) September 13, 2015
There were also 3 solar eclipses on the 1st of Av 2008, 2009, 2010, this date has a significant history for Jews, it is the very day Aaron the high priest died- the only exact date death recorded in the bible.
Now (March 26th 2016) we can see what has unfolded during these eclipses, in brief:
The 1st blood moon triggered Operation Protective Edge, the 50 day war between Israel and Hamas/Gaza also the ISIS crisis and the Syria war which has given us the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 as Damascus has become a ruinous heap.
The 2nd blood moon triggered public beheadings of Christians by ISIS and the genocide of Christians.
The Nisan 1 solar eclipse triggered the Saudi (Sunni Islam) invasion of Yemen which is basically war against Iran (Shiite Islam).
The 3rd blood moon triggered Iranian nuclear deal also Gay marriage was legalized in America basically limiting free speech by Christians and making Christians politically incorrect.
The Tishri 1 2nd solar eclipse of the group had Russia show up in Syria and on that very day start operations also the 3rd intifada began on that very day with Palestinians knifing and car ramming Israelis.
The 4th blood moon triggered the mass migration of Muslims into Europe with the rape of many European women, also with the terrorism/murders that just occurred in Brussels.
But now the big news: it actually isn’t a tetrad of blood moons, it is a “pentad” or 5 blood moons in a row on God’s holy feast days. March 23rd 2016 has a penumbral lunar eclipse on the feast of Purim, in the month called 2Adar on the 14th day, this feast is established in the book of Esther chapter 9. There have been 8 tetrads since Jesus died on the cross but no pentads. What will this bring? If the book of Esther is the type and pattern then there will be a great reversal of the way current events are going, a great deliverance for Israel maybe, could it be the coming of the great deliverer, the messiah?
