Jan 31, 2014 What is the message of the coming Blood Moons Tetrad?

There is a lot of discussion going on at this time about the tetrad of blood moon eclipses that are coming up this year 2014 and the next 2015. Many believe that it is announcing the Rapture, the Apocalypse and many other prophetic events. Time will tell how many prophecies were linked to the event by God.

This tetrad is related historically to Israel by the rarity of its occurrence and the events in Israel when they happened in the past.

The article by Gene Lawley is good in that it brings different points of view to these celestial events and their relationship to the prophecies that are due for fulfillment. Please see the other articles posted here on this subject.

One other observation of mine is that the place where the eclipses occur do not necessarily have to be seen from Israel as modern day satellite transmissions make it possible to see them as they occur from all corners of the world and the news outlets announce their appearance well ahead of time. Several years ago before the advent of computers and satellites only those with astronomical training were aware of their occurrence and location.


Sorting Out the Message of the Moons

By Gene Lawley

Anytime there is an eclipse of the moon or the sun it seems to stir up a lot of interest, sometimes almost as the time Hailey’s comet came in view from earth a few years ago. To me it looked like a smoky dust ball in our southeastern sky, hardly visible, even with binoculars. Then, it was gone in a few days, never to return in our lifetime.

But four total lunar eclipses in two years, projected by NASA are getting considerable attention among Bible prophecy adherents. There is much more to it in that regard, however, than just four lunar eclipses in two years. It’s their timing, visibility and repetitive appearances on certain days of the years. Here is a list of their salient characteristics:

  • They will appear on specific annual feast days of Israel.  In 2014, on April 15, the Feast of Passover and October 8, 2014, the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • They will appear in 2015 on the Feast of Passover, April 4, and on the Feast of Tabernacles, September 28.
  • The moon and its signs are distinctly related to Israel. The Jewish calendar is based on a lunar month of thirty days and a 360-day year. Different phases of the monthly moon cycle become reference points for much of Israel’s society.
  • The visibility of the eclipses around the world add to the mystery of these so-called “blood moons.”  The first one in 2014 will only be visible in Australia, Pacific and the Americas.  In October, it will be visible in Asia, Australia, Pacific and the Americas. In 2015, the first one will be seen in Asia, Australia, Pacific, and the Americas.  And, the last one will be visible in the East Pacific, Americas, Europe, Africa, and West Asia. In the latter region it will be visible in Jerusalem as the moon sets.

Some Observations about These Characteristics

The full eclipses fall on the first and last feast days of the annual seven-feast cycle, seemingly and perhaps purposely bracketing the annual seven feast schedule for each year. Is it to call attention to this annually repeated pattern since God gave Moses the instructions for their observance so many centuries ago on Mount Sinai?

Is it not strange that while the signs of the moon are directed to Israel’s attention, rather than the nations (Gentiles), these total eclipses are not visible in Israel, except for the final one, and that, hardly at all? It begs the question, why?

Let’s look at the feasts and their purposes in God’s plan. They were given to Moses as part of the declaration of the laws of God for the Hebrew nation. They are listed in Leviticus 23 in brief form. Hebrews 10:1 declares the law is but a shadow of the reality that was to come. That is, the law and its sacrifices were not the real thing, but were a foreshadowing of that reality then yet to come. Colossians 2:16-17 reveals that reality is Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,” as John the Baptist declared in John 1:29.

These feast days, or festivals, had future fulfillments, and we can see that the first four were fulfilled in short order at the time of the crucifixion and shortly thereafter. Jesus was the Passover Lamb. It is unique how exact the timing was for His death. While the priests at the temple were preparing the lambs for that scheduled sacrifice, Jesus was being interrogated by the religious leaders and their Roman counterparts, and they were preparing Him for His sacrifice.  Yet, Jesus was not sacrificed there; He was not part of that sacrifice, and he was sacrificed outside the city.  He was not of the tribe of Levi, which had charge of that other sacrifice; He was of the tribe of Judah and of the order ofMelchizedek, that priest of a much higher order (Hebrews 7).

Jesus was buried and in the tomb during the next feast, the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Unleavened bread is flat bread; it does not rise in its baking. It is essentially dead, thus Jesus fulfilled that shadowed reality in His burial.

But on Sunday morning He rose from the grave and became the first fruit of the resurrection, corresponding to the first harvest time of the year, celebrated as the Feast of “First Fruits.”

Then, seven Sabbaths plus one day later the Feast of Pentecost was scheduled.  It was the time of the second harvest, and the fulfillment was the coming of the Holy Spirit to indwell the very lives of the believers, as He was promised.  Jesus had told the disciples, when revealing to them that a Comforter would be coming after He departed, saying in John 14:17, “Bow He is with you, but then he will be in you.” Note that this day was a Sunday, the day the church, the body of Christ, was born.

No other feasts have been fulfilled since then, when in less than sixty days four of the foreshadowing feasts were turned into reality. Once in Jesus’ ministry, probably about this time of the year, he said to His disciples:

“Do you not say, It is yet four months, and the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white to harvest already” (John 4:35).

It is apparent in the context that He is not talking about the fields of grain before them. Sometime later, as Jesus was about to ascend to His Father in heaven following His resurrection, the disciples had one last question to ask Him: 

“Lord, do You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And Jesus responded, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you. And you shall be witnesses to Me both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:6-8).

About ten days later, the church was born and here, we see its mission. A few years later, at the conference in Jerusalem, that mission was clearly defined: “God at the first visited the nations (Gentiles) to take out of them a people for His name” (Acts 15:14).  This period of time since Pentecost has been given to that mission, as spelled out in Acts 1:8.  That four months until the harvest in the Jewish annual calendar has become a gap of many centuries.  We have seen the “times and seasons” that Jesus spoke of, in reference to the question asked about the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, now come to pass. The kingdom has been restored to Israel as an independent nation. 

There have been no feast fulfillments since Pentecost, yet there is one more time of harvest on the Jewish calendar each year—the fall harvest. The next feast, the Feast of Trumpets, is unique in its manner of practice as an annual festival. It falls on the first day of the Jewish civil New Year, timed with the appearance of the new moon that starts the month’s new cycle. The requirement of exact correlation with the timing of the new moon at sundown meant that a two-day option had to be created in case cloudy weather prohibited a vision of the timing of the new moon. (As you may recall, Jewish days begin at sundown and end at the next sundown.)

At the opening trumpet blast from the temple in local practice, the field workers would immediately stop their harvesting and go to the place of meeting for worship.  There, they would meet with the Lord.  It is not that difficult to see the parallel with Paul’s description of the Rapture of the believers in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17:  “For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord.”

It is not clear exactly when during the festival would the Rapture occur, for Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:52 of a “last trumpet” when the transformations happen.  In the Thessalonians passage, Jesus “descends from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God.” He also calls it a mystery, and certainly it is, for Jesus

has said, “Therefore watch, for you do not know either the day or the hour in which the Son of Man comes” (Matthew 25:13).

The next feast, the Feast of Atonement, was scheduled on the tenth day of that seventh month (of the religious year). Only believers are qualified for atonement, and this festival foreshadowed that provision in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross.  For the unsaved Jew that provision is not effective until they have recognized that Jesus is their promised Messiah and believe on Him. According to the prophecy of Zechariah, there is a time coming when Israel will look upon Jesus in a much different light, like the light of understanding and reality, and of bitterness and repentance:

 “And I will pour on the house of David, and on the people of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of prayers.  And they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born” (Zechariah 12:10). It will be the time of the true atonement for Israel, as foreshadowed in the Feast of Atonement.

Zechariah goes on to say, in the next chapter, “And it shall be in all the land, says Jehovah, two parts in it shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, It is My people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God” (Zechariah 13:8-9). You can read the rest of the story in Revelation 12, where that great red dragon, the devil, chases them into the wilderness.

That final feast of the seven, the Feast of Tabernacles, points to the coming of Jesus Christ back to earth as the conquering Sovereign, who will close the seven years of tribulation with destruction of evil forces aligned against God, including the man of sin and the false prophet. Those two will be “thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (Revelation 19:20). In the following chapter we are told what happens to the devil—he is cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand  years and Jesus reigns on earth, on the throne of David in Jerusalem. 

The Bible says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt [tabernacled] among us” (John 1:14), and again, He will come to dwell among us, as foreshadowed by the Feast of Tabernacles, thus climaxing that historical calendar of God’s plan for Israel, His chosen nation, and His church of Jewish and Gentile believers.

The questions we should be asking now are:

  • What is in these feasts that would cause the bracketing of the seven for each of two years?
  • For whom are the signs meant, since they are not visible in the land of Israel, except in their fading moments on the second day?

One of my readers alerted me to the following possibility. Noting the worldwide visibility of the eclipses, except in Israel and the Middle East, remembering also that God has scattered the Jews among all the nations, we cannot forget that God is still calling all Jews

back to their homeland in Israel. With our focus on the nation and land of Israel, we forget that a great number of Jews are still scattered among the nations, and those nations are the very ones in the visible path of the blood red moons.  For example, there are about 5.5 million Jews still in the United States and over a third of a million in Canada. How many more are in the sweep of the moon signs over other countries?

The one feast of the remaining three to be fulfilled, the Feast of Atonement, is the one that directly confronts unrepentant Israel with its foreshadowing of their Messiah’s unveiling before them. Their recognition and acceptance of Him is set forth in prophecy, as noted above.  Possibly these two factors—the full return of Jews to Israel and the fulfillment of the Feast of Atonement—are the core elements of the message of the moons.  

Are these factors, then, clues to the purpose of the moon eclipses, their appearances on the first and last feasts of the annual series, and why Israel, itself, the historical lunar signs recipient, is not the focus of these signs?

Is God making a final call to the yet scattered Jews back to their homeland? Are the Rapture and the Atonement fulfillments a part of this unique, two-year alert and warning of things to come?  Is God’s appointed time now upon us?

Jan 31, 2014 The Red Planet and the coming of the Antichrist

The subject of this post is dead serious but for many is the stuff of fiction and the lunatic fringes of society. That we consider it serious to post is because it is part of the prophetic scenario of the end times and it is also part of Bible prophecy as you will hear in the two videos below.

Mr. Doug Woodward is a serious Christian writer who researches his books thoroughly and has a vast knowledge of the occult and all its present day manifestations in the world.

For those of you that are not familiar with the term theosophy by madame Blavatsky it would be wise to Google it further. It is a Satanic organization that inspired the likes of Adolf Hitler and that has captivated the New Age movement today. In my life I have come in contact twice with members of this cultist belief and in my opinion it was Satan trying to lure me in to one of his many falsehoods.

The present membership in the USA is listed as 4,072 members with a world total of 12,000. Based on this the two members that I came in contact with is highly subjective in my opinion that Satan was targeting me real time. More facts

The author Mr. Woodward is also the author of the book The Final Babylon America and the Coming of Antichrist, a book that I highly recommend.Nando

Jan 29, 2014 Obama’s pact with Iran means trouble for Israel the US and the middle east

This article was posted in and it pertains to Obama, Israel and Iran mainly.

It is an excellent analysis of the political and military situation that Obama has created in the middle east, one that puts in danger the USA, Israel and the whole middle east. The article expresses the opinion that he has done this intentionally and with malice. I agree with this assessment.

The one country that will suffer the most in all of this is Iran that as we analyze the prophecies pertaining them we see that they will suffer utter destruction and their people will be scattered all over the world.

The Bible predicts that the Apocalypse will come to the world prior to the coming of Jesus to establish his millennium kingdom. Obama as the Antichrist riding the white horse of Revelation is allowed by God to conquer the earth for this period of time till Jesus comes and throws him and his false prophet into the lake of fire.

Obama Has Made it Impossible for Israel to Strike Iran

By Karin McQuillan

I called a hardheaded realist, a Harvard trained PhD who has been watching the Middle East professionally for decades, to ask him about Obama’s Iran deal.  This is what he told me.

It’s done.  Iran will get a bomb.

They want a bomb and they will not be denied unless somebody stops them.  Obama does not want to stop them.  He does not want a friendly regime in Iran.  He wants Iran as a counterforce to America and Israel.  Obama is not a Muslim, but he is a radical.  He sees the U.S. and Israel as imperialistic and oppressive.  He doesn’t like the U.S. military.  He’d cut it to nothing if he could get away with it.

We’ll have to pull our troops and our aircraft carriers out of the Persian Gulf.  We’ll lose our ability to protect Middle Eastern oil.  The Gulf Arabs will have to cooperate with Iran.  So will Europe; they depend on that oil.

The Iranians want the ascendance of Shia Islam.  People don’t remember, but when Ayatollah Khomeini took over, he sent Revolutionary Guards to Saudi Arabia and they seized Mecca.  French paratroopers had to go in secretly and get them out.  The Saudis couldn’t do it themselves.

The Iranians want to take over Mecca and Medina.  They want to take over the Arab world.  With their nuclear weapons they will pressure Israel.  They don’t need to bomb them.  They will test a nuclear bomb, they will send in missiles, they will issue threats, they will strangle them economically.  Israel’s high tech people will leave.  They can do start-ups in Silicon Valley just as easily as in Israel; the weather is just as nice.  Investments in Israel will dry up.

The deal is indeed terrible. Obama has been changing the rules of the game — he went from Iran not having the ability to make a bomb, which had been our policy, to Iran not actually making a complete bomb. 

Once you’ve mastered enrichment, and Iran has, creating enough highly enriched uranium is just a choice; there are no technical hurdles left.  They have thousands of centrifuges that can enrich uranium in a few months, starting from zero.  Whether they have stocks on hand enriched to 5% or 20% is totally irrelevant.  

Iran will have an unarmed bomb on the shelf ready to go. Loading the bomb takes a short time — who will know when they do that?  Bombs are not that big, especially ones meant to be loaded on missiles. So who will even know where it is?

The Threat to America

Forget a dirty bomb against America.  What about a real bomb?  A ten thousand pound bomb could be on a cargo ship or a barge heading into an American port.  There are many points of failure in trying to stop them.  We do radiation testing on cargo ships, as much as we can.  Iranians are smart, they have good engineers and scientists, they will take counter-measures.  We can succeed 9 out of ten times.  What about the tenth time?  And how do we know it’s from Iran?  It has no signature.  It could be from Pakistan.  Iran absolutely is a threat to the U.S.

The idea that the mullahs have not made the decision to make a bomb, and if they do so we will know, is absurd. Consider all the other instances in which our intelligence was caught flat footed — 9/11, the second Indian bomb, Pakistan, North Korea, the fall of the Soviet Union. 

They could well have a bomb ready to go right now — it’s not that hard. They probably don’t have the highly enriched uranium — probably, but not definitely.

This deal makes it essentially impossible for Israel to strike — not least because the U.S. has Israel under a microscope, by satellite and other technical means, and also with spies in the government and the IDF (Israeli Defense Force). At the first hint that a mission is imminent, the White House will leak it to the Washington Post, the New York Times, destroying operational security.  Just as the U.S. leaked about Israel’s strikes into Syria.

If despite this Israel tries to strike, they are the ones who will be viewed as pariahs and warmongers.  They could face economic sanctions.  Obviously Bibi didn’t trust Obama, but Obama managed to betray him and Israel anyhow.

It’s the U.S. that has the bunker buster bombs capable of taking out Iran’s hardened nuclear sites, not Israel.  Iran learned from Israel bombing Osirak.  They distributed their nuclear program and put it in hardened sites.  Israel doesn’t have heavy bombers.  They can’t afford them; they don’t have the men or the money.  They rely on air superiority, which is what they’ve needed – F-15 and F-16s, multi-purpose aircraft.

Israeli military cooperation with the Saudis could be a game changer, because it’s closer to the target and doesn’t require refueling.  But the Saudis don’t have the necessary integrated air defenses.  Is Israel going to bring in Iron Dome to protect the Saudi airfields?  Iron Dome is designed for lighter, Hezb’allah missiles, and as soon as you start installing it, your secrecy is gone.  Bombing Iran is not a one shot deal.  Without the bunker busters, Israel is going to have to hit the same spot over and over.  That is not easy.  It will take 3-4 days.  You bomb, evaluate the hits, bomb again in the same spot.

Bombing will only delay Iran a couple of years.  Is it worth it?

The bottom line is that diplomacy absolutely can’t stop the Iranian nuclear project, including nuclear weapons.  Diplomacy can delay the program, especially if combined with the threat of force. After we invaded Iraq, the Iranians were very scared, so they halted the project for a year. When they became convinced that we would not attack them they restarted the project and accelerated it.

The only real answer is regime change. Obama doesn’t want regime change. Remember, when the protesters were in the streets of Cairo, we forced our ally Mubarak to resign, with brutal public and private pressure. But when the protesters were in the streets of Tehran, and the regime’s thugs were attacking and murdering them, Obama did nothing. He could have used the occasion to tighten sanctions even more, and using the pretext of human rights he could have had European public opinion on his side.

 Obama wants the Iranian regime to survive, he wants to negotiate with it, and he wants to ally with it. What a coup that would be for Mr. Obama — he would get a second Nobel.

 He is like the community organizer who goes into a rough neighborhood and wants to reach an agreement with the strongest street gang, so they will let him organize in peace. That’s what Obama is doing, by bending to the Iranian demands and negotiating with Hezb’allah.  Of course, this is idiotic – Hezb’allah is just a puppet of the Iranians, and only a fool would negotiate with a puppet.

Is regime change possible?  The CIA could do it.  We’ve done it before.  You pay people to create labor unrest, strikes.  The Iranian regime is tottering.  It could be brought down.  The mullahs do not trust the army.  They’re afraid their conscript soldiers won’t fire on crowds, so they rely on Revolutionary Guards, highly paid, and on organized street thugs called the Basiji.  But, you get one general to revolt and kill the political officers, make a public statement that “we must not harm the people.”  The Iranian people are not violent, they are not prone to riot, but a funeral leads to a demonstration, to more funerals and the protest grows.  Only 55% of Iran is Persian, the rest are minorities, Arabs, Azerbaijanis — you create problems.  A truck of Iranian soldiers is blown up in the Azerbaijani region.  It’s not hard to do. 

Iran could have a regime friendly to us.  The people have experienced the mullahs; they are friendly to America, and even Israel.  Under the Shah, Iran was friendly with Israel. 

Obama doesn’t want Iran to become an ally, or he would have acted during the Arab spring to topple the regime.  They were vulnerable.  The people were chanting, O ba ma, O ba ma, which means, “you are with us,” in Farsi.  But Obama wasn’t with them. 

Obama doesn’t want America to have allies.  He undermines them.  Look what he did to Poland, our best ally in Eastern Europe.  Poland went out on a limb for us on NATO missiles and Obama cut it off.  He undermined Israel and the Saudis.

Anyhow, that’s how I see it. If Israel had a realistic military option, they should have pulled the trigger before Obama’s second term (of course, he ordered them to maintain quiet until the election was over). Don’t know for sure what they were thinking. Maybe they didn’t have a real option but used the threat to try to tighten sanctions and get the US to act.

It’s a very bad situation — another great mess created by our glorious leader.  We’re going to have a nuclear Iran.

Jan 26, 2014 More facts on Barack Obama’s father and birth certificate!

I received this e-mail today from a very good friend and I am posting it here as it has a lot of information that is relevant to the identity Of Obama.

With the advent of facial recognition software and genetics it could be very simple to verify allegations of birth. If Obama would be sincere in asserting who his father was, disregarding his birth place he could do it with DNA from his relatives.

That he has not done so implies murkiness from this controversial man whose past is so hotly contested. The video implies that Barack’s father is other than the one he claims and puts in question the authenticity of his Hawaii birth certificate and the woman who issued it.

Jan 26, 2014 Gary Stearman explains the Rapture

I agree with Mr. Stearman’s interpretation of the Rapture occurring before the Tribulations. This means that all who believe that the Tribulations have already begun are not correct. This fact can be argued with many scriptures apart from the Rapture.

The Rapture itself can be argued from the point of view that Jesus will protect the righteous from the coming Tribulations in the same manner that Noah and Lot with their families were protected. The seven year Tribulation would bring the same destructive force to earth as the flood or the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Lord said that if He would tarry no flesh would survive.

Jan 26, 2014 “Love” is the main difference between Judaism-Christianity and Islam

In this Bible news daily update Mr. Gary Stearman explains using Al Jazeera’s article as a base explains why the Jewish army behaves with restrain and humanity in their fights versus the Arab armies that do not.

The answer is simple the Bible demands that love be the driving force of the relationship of humans with God and other humans and the Koran urges its followers to submit to their god and to kill or enslave those humans who do not.

Basically one is from to the true God, the Bible, and the other from Satan, the Koran.

There is no one that will not have to choose between obeying the true God of the Bible or Satan who disguises as god in all the other religions of the world. Those who choose to not obey anybody and claim a sense of freedom by default are obeying Satan because the God of the Bible the true God requires love and obedience.

No group of humans or animals can exist and flourish without laws and rules to control behavior and in these laws a hierarchical command is always necessary. This is one of the absolute laws given by God to its creation.

Where do you stand?

Jan 25, 2014 The end is here by pastor JD Farag

As usual I try to place pastor Farag here for the readers to see. In this prophecy update he asks the Lord if there is more time to wait for the Apocalypse and then he answers that question enunciating the myriad of prophecies that are in the threshold of being fulfilled.

Every day the news brings more prophetic relevant news in a crescendo. I am as bewildered as he is about what we see coming at breath neck speed. Wars are everywhere but they seem to be contained from spreading, the economy in many countries are in shambles, just today Argentina was in the news with the government trying to contain a runaway inflation. That country is not an exception but the rule.

It is as if unseen forces are preventing the dam from bursting by patching holes, but the rain keeps swelling the reservoir to the point that the dam is groaning.

It looks that all things will be let loose at the same time provoking the destruction of 1/4 of humanity about 1.7 billion people as the fourth seal of the book of Revelation states. Times that are coming will be fearful to those who are not close to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jan 23, 2013 Michele Bachmann speaks out against Obama’s introduction of lawlessness

In this video Michele Bachmann explains the lawless actions of president Obama. In my opinion the most dangerous thing that the US government is doing is the accumulation of all phone and internet transmissions for future retrieval at the whim of some person with access to it.

This has been going on for some time now and you can use your imagination to think about all the dangerous situations that can come from it in the event that democracy is eroded to the point that a dictatorial government takes the reins of power.

Think about Hitler with this type of information from all those he controlled.

1/21/2014 Israel will stop Iran from a nuclear capability

This news today as we approach the coming blood moons tetrad of 2014, 2015.


Iran’s military nuclear bid ‘will be stopped’: Israel

Jerusalem (AFP) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that Iran’s atomic drive “will be stopped”, a day after an interim agreement bringing sanctions relief for Tehran took effect.

“Iran’s military nuclear programme must be stopped, and Iran’s military nuclear programme will be stopped,” Netanyahu said at a joint news conference with his Canadian counterpart Stephen Harper, without saying how.

Israel has long warned that a nuclear Iran would pose an existential threat to the Jewish state, and has refused to rule out a military strike to prevent that from happening.

Netanyahu fought a major diplomatic campaign against the so-called Geneva Agreement which was hammered out in November between world powers and Iran, and on Monday he said the agreement would not succeed in stopping Tehran.

“The interim agreement which went into force today does not prevent Iran from realising its intention to develop nuclear weapons,” he told the Israeli parliament.

His remarks came just hours after the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed Iran had halted production of 20 percent enriched uranium, marking the entry into force of the landmark deal with the P5+1 group of world powers.

The international community also kept its part of the deal, with both the European Union and United States separately announcing they were easing crippling sanctions on Iran.

The deal, which was signed in Geneva, came about after nearly a decade of failed negotiations over its disputed nuclear programme, which the West believes is a front for building a military capability.

Tehran has denied the charge.

“A nuclear armed Iran would not just endanger Israel — it would threaten the peace and security of our region,” Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

“It would give Iran’s terrorist proxies a nuclear umbrella.

“It would launch a multilateral nuclear arms race in the Middle East, it could turn the Middle East into a nuclear tinderbox,” he said.

Netanyahu said the Iran nuclear issue, and the rise of Islamism across the Middle East, had united Israel and many Arab countries in their efforts to face these “twin challenges”.

“Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and the aggressive designs of the Muslim Brotherhood is what shapes many of the Arab world’s leading countries today,” he said.

“In meeting those twin challenges, these countries do not see Israel as their enemy but as being on the same side of a difficult conflict,” he said.

Commentators say the diplomatic effect of direct talks between Israel’s sworn enemy Iran and Western powers could see the Jewish state finding more in common with traditional Arab allies of the US, particularly Sunni Gulf kingdom Saudi Arabia.

JAN 16, 2014 A Prophetic look at Pentecost 2014 by Luis Vega

Luis Vega has shown a correlation of dates and phi ratios from the major blood moon tetrads that have occurred in the 1949 and 1967 and will occur in 2014-15.

This year is the 66 year anniversary from the birth of Israel in May 14, 1948. The 66th book of the Bible is the book of Revelation. Could Israel be pointing to the start of the Tribulations with the anniversary?

The prophecy of the seventy weeks of years of  Daniel 9:24 counted the time to Messiah’s cut off as 69 weeks of years = 483 years. The day it was fulfilled was Passover 32 AD when Christ was crucified. Will the last week start at a Passover to keep the same pattern?

Will the church be Raptured on Pentecost to fulfill a whole number of years? If the answer to these questions is in the affirmative the church will be present for the start of the Apocalypse and in the 49 days we will see the two witnesses that will confirm that Christ is coming and it will be what awakens the whole church from its long hundreds of years slumber as shown on the parable of the 10 virgins found in the book of Mathew.

Thanks Luis Vega for your very good articles and charts.

PROPHETIC PENTECOSTS – Echoes of the Liberation of the Temple Mount

Echoes of the Liberation of the Temple Mount
by Luis B. Vega
Online PDF chart at:
‘As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house[a] to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.’ -1 Peter 2:4
The start of the Tetrad on April 15, 2014 has some possible present day prophetic overtones to the Tetrad of April 24, 1967. The 7 week count of 49 days from First Fruits on April 18 lands on June 7, 2014 as denoted on a timeline from the Spring Feasts of the LORD/Jewish. This date of June 7 is exactly 47 years exactly from when the IDF recaptured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967. By some estimates, Pentecost occurred on June 5, 1957*. This is precisely when the assault to the Temple Mount & the battle for the Old City commenced.

This numerical count thus also has echoes of the year 19-47. The year ’47 was when the UN Partition Plan made Israel a de-facto state. What is remarkable is that on both prior Biblical fulfillments, the prophetic climax occurred on Pentecost based on certain Jewish calendars. Israel’s declaration of independence was on the eve of the Sabbath and Pentecost. The timeline will show that the Feasts are in perfect phi ratio from Passover to Pentecost and likewise the Tetrad Blood Moons are in perfect harmony of time and space to Pentecost of June 8, 2014.

Another reason why makes Pentecost of 2014 is unique is that it follows 3 consecutive Pentecosts to have occurred in-between eclipses within a lunar cycle period that has not occurred nor will for hundreds of years according to NASA’s eclipse table calculations.

Astonishing, there are 120 days from the May 19, 2013 to June 8, 2014 Pentecost dates. This is the number of the Disciples of Christ in the Upper Room that gathers to receive the promise of the Holy Spirit. It was also the start of the Church Age. The Body of Christ, the Church was birthed as a result of the death of Messiah during Passover, His burial at Unleavened Bread & His resurrection at First Fruits 3 days later as the promised Sign of Jonah was fulfilled. Could thus this Pentecost not only be tied to the 3rd Temple but to the Christians around the world, if not at that time, thereafter? As the Church’s Commission & ‘Spiritual Temple’ is completed, will this mark the time for the Earthly Temple to commence?

Israel became a nation on Sivan 5 on the 360 calendar, which was May 14 evening to May 15 evening in 1948. Israel became a nation at midnight May 14th ending, in 1948, upon the termination of the British mandate.
  The following is time from Pentecost 1948 to Pentecost 2014.

May 14, 1948 to June 8, 2014 = 66 years, 25 days or 3447 weeks

PENTECOST: Jerusalem
June 5th, 1967 was when the IDF began to ascend to the Temple Mount on the 50th year count of 1967. Israel regained the Old City since AD 70.

The year 1966 by some calculations was the Year of Jubilee. The following is the time from when Israel recaptured the Temple Mount on Pentecost 1967 to the Pentecost of 2014.

June 7, 1967 to June 8, 2014 = 47 years, excluding end dates

Will this Pentecost Pattern hold and see a Biblical fulfillment of some sort on or around June 8? Something related to the Temple & the Church of Jesus Christ. It may very well occur as start of the Tetrad echoes the day counts are very similar to the June 7, 1967 recapture of the Temple Mount. The following is the time from last of 3 Pentecosts in-between eclipse of 2013 to Pentecost of 2014 that has echoes of the number in the Upper Room on the 1
st Pentecost.
May 19, 2013 to June 8, 2014 = 120 days

Numerical Date Counts
From the 2nd Blood Moon of 1949 to the Israeli membership to the UN
October 7, 1949 to November 5, 1949 = 29 days or 696 hours or 4 weeks

>From the 1st Blood Moon of 1967 to the capture of Jerusalem

April 24, 1967 to June 7, 1967 = 177 days or 25 weeks

>From the 1
st Blood Moon of 2014 to Pentecost
April 15, 2015 to June 8, 2014 = 55 days or 7 weeks (excluding end date)

>From the 1
st Blood Moon of 1967 to the 1st Blood Moon of 2014
April 24, 1967 to April 15, 2014 = 46 years 11 months 22 days

>From the 1
st Blood Moon of 1967 to the Partial Solar Eclipse of April 2014
April 24, 1967 to April 24, 2014 = 47 years exactly
Could this count from the Blood Moon Passover to Passover, a 49 day count plus 1 day be a prophetic count or code that the Pentecost that will be a major and significant event that will lead to the building of the 3rd Temple within the 2014-15 series? Will an event dealing with the issue of the Jewish Temple occur during this time?

Perhaps these prophetic times involving the start of the Tetrad and the Temple are tied to the completion of the Church Age that has been characterized by Christ completing His ‘Spiritual Temple’ to then allow for the start of the building of the Earthly Temple for the Nation of Israel. Could this in turn start the final countdown to the Tribulation and subsequent Return of Messiah? Well shall see and shortly find out.

*”It can be shown that even the Jewish calendar of Iyar 6 could have been Sivan 6th {i.e.,
Pentecost} that year since the month began very late that year. Sivan 5th is Pentecost on the 360 calendar while Sivan 6th is Pentecost on the regular Jewish calendar. This is because the month of Iyar only has 29 days in it on the regular Jewish calendar, whereas the 360 calendar always have 30 days.”

Coming God of War – Retrograde of Mars associated with Israel, Jerusalem & 3rd Temple?

Prophetic Mars Alignments regarding the Israel, Jerusalem & the 3rd Temple

There are several converging factors around the Spring Tetrad of 2014. The much talked about Tetrad occurs right in the middle of the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo. Virgo is often spoken of representing Israel as is Leo also. These are the 2 signs of the Mazzaroth that Israel is alluded to in Scripture. Interestingly, the Mazzaroth or Zodiac starts with Virgo and ends with Leo. Prophetically speaking, it could be the case that as far as Israel is concerned, the order is being reversed in the End Times. The Biblical fulfillment of the convergence of all prophecy started with Israel becoming a nation in the constellation Leo and could possibly be ending with Virgo. In this case of the Retrograde of Mars in Leo, there was war in Israel as a result, the War of Independence.

These 2 signs of Leo and Virgo correspond to the key prophetic times of Israel in modern history. Incredibly, the UN’s Partition Plan and Israel’s independence declaration in 1948 occurred in Leo at the precise time when Mars conjoined with Regulus on both accounts. The recapturing of Jerusalem occurred when the Retrograde of Mars occurred within days of the Tetrad of April 24, 1967 as it conjoined with Spica. In that case also, the Retrograde of Mars was in Virgo and there was war in Israel as a result, the 6-Day War.

What this study and illustration shows is that the Retrograde of Mars is also occurring and will reach mid-point during the 3rd Tetrad staring on April 14, 2014. This last Tetrad sequence of 2014-15 is part of the cluster of 3 that started in 1949. The Retrograde of Mars pattern is as follows. The Retrograde of Mars occurred in Leo during the Declaration of Independence in May of 1948. The same event occurred in Virgo during the capture of Jerusalem in 1967. Now the Retrograde of Mars will be at mid-point as the 3rd Tetrad series in the 66th year will occur also in Virgo.

What could be also prophetic is that this Retrograde of Mars in association to the Tetrad leads up to the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of World War I by about 2 weeks. Is this possibly significant or coincidental? Although the Retrograde of Mars is cyclical, this rare convergence with the Tetrad could be the pattern that could be prophetic as it relates to some in Israel’s orthodox community quest to build the Jewish 3rd Temple. Thus the Retrograde of Mars in Virgo could likewise be signaling that there will be war in Israel as a result. This is only stipulated as a result of the prior the Mars conjunctions of 1948 and 1967.

Many believe that the conditions that led up to World War I are currently present in the geo-politics of the Middle East. Currently the main efforts to arrive at a final peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians are undertaken by the USA. Specifically, Secretary of State, John Kerry is spearheading the debates with much opposition and criticism. Despite a dragging-on of the peace talks, it is speculated that a settlement of some type or to a certain degree will be reached by April 2014. This timing will coincide precisely with the Tetrad and the Retrograde of Mars.

Although the US has been much involved in foreign entanglements in the Middle East, as with Iraq and Afghanistan, its populace back at home, in general is much asleep as it was prior to World War I.  What this study strongly suggests is that if the Mars Retrograde and the Tetrad patterns have some validity to them, then there will be war in Israel as it was for their war for their independence, war for Jerusalem and perhaps now a coming ‘god of war’ for their Temple.

The peace process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority that would divide Israel and establish the State of Palestine would in effect take Israel’s borders to the pre 6-Day War. This means that the Old City of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount would have to be given up as it would constitute the new capital of Palestine. Yet these issues of contention still remain to be worked out but a resolution, be it an intermediate or final treaty is said to be achieved by April of 2014, around the time of the start of the Tetrad’s 1st Blood Moon and the coinciding with mid-point of the Retrograde of Mars.

In all actuality, as the politicians are claiming ‘Peace and Safety’ for Israel and Palestine’s recognition of Israel, the Bible speaks of there being a ‘sudden destruction’ instead. Could all this talks of peace and safety for Israel instead be the spring in the trap that will instead unleash an orchestrated Arab assault on Israel as in the Psalm 83 depicts?
The dates surrounding the statehood of Israel in 1948, the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967 and the start of the Tetrad in 2014 all have a Retrograde of Mars associated to these Biblical prophetic fulfillments. The first 2 prophetic events occurred on Pentecost, as some have calculated time. Will the 3rd event that may occur during the Tetrad up to the eve of Pentecost June 7, 2014 also be prophetic?

A Retrograde
In astronomy, a retrograde is the appearance of a celestial object, in this case, planets moving backwards against the sky. This is an effect based on the relative difference is speed of the planets as they revolve around the Sun.  As the orbits are circular around the Sun, inevitably, some planets will pass others and in the process ‘appear’ as though the planets are moving ‘backwards’ for a time before moving forward once again. For example, Mercury will have a very prominent Retrograde in-between the time of the Tetrad of 2015.

The following illustration depicts the exact position of Mars when the 1st Blood Moon of the Tetrad Apr 15, 2014 occurs.

Nov 22: Mars enters Virgo

Feb 01: In line with Spica
Mar 01: Start of Retrograde (approximate)
Mar 27: In line with Spica (’impregnates Virgo’ )
Apr 15: Exactly mid-way of Retrograde (Tetrad starts)
May 20: End of Retrograde (approximate)
Jun 13: Conjunction with Spica

>From start of Mars Retrograde to end
Mat 1, 2014 to May 20, 2014
=  81 days or 2 months 20 days or 11 weeks

This is the same amount of time that the Retrograde occurred in Virgo on 1967 by 1 day.

>From Spica alignments Mar 27, 2014 to end of Jul 13, 2014

= 108 day or 3 months 16 days or 15 weeks
(14 days from WWI 100 Year Anniversary

>From start of Tetrad April 15, 2014 to end of Mars RETROGRADE May 20, 2014
= 88 day or 2 months 28 days (excluding end date)

The God of War
here was a war that determined a favorable outcome for the Nation of Israel during Israel’s Independence in 1948-1949 and in the recapture of Jerusalem, in 1967. This study strongly suggests that the Retrograde of Mars was a ‘Sign’ in the Heavenlies that coincided precisely with the prophetic dates in Israel’s modern history.

1. The War of Independence
2. The 6-Day War

Since Israel’s independence, there have been numerous wars with its Muslim neighbors and on-going skirmishes but if the Retrograde of Mars parallels these 2 prior dates in Israel’s history, then perhaps the beginning of the Tetrad 2014 could see a similar war with Israel that will see the following.

1. A favorable result for Israel
2. Possible expansion of Lands and
3. The inevitable rebuilding of Temple

Interestingly the Spring 2014 Mars Retrograde at the time of the conjunction with Spica will be 15 days from the 100th Year Anniversary of World War I. Could this Retrograde in conjunction to the Tetrad signal thus the coming of 3rd World War?
