Tomorrow there will be a rare black moon in the sky and many are relating it to the Apocalypse.
It is noteworthy to point out that Sunday is Elul 29 the end of the Jubilee year 2015-2016 and that God sent warnings through the Dow dropping 7% in the years 2001 and 2008 followed by depressions.
Will Monday see a drop of 49% and 7,777 points?
Douglas Henney has presented us in a six parts series with his thoughts of what is coming in the near future and in the next seven years of Apocalypse.
A very good dissertation of what is to come with some unusual points of view a some Bible based speculation. Very possible scenario although not all can I agree with.
Thank you Mr. Henney for very good thought provoking articles.
A very good article by Douglas Henney ties the Jubilee year and the Asteroid passing close or hitting the earth about two weeks from now. The study of three days of darkness in the Bible is very good, thanks Douglas.

“My thinking for the upcoming months, part one.“
I take in end times and prophecy information from a variety of sources, in addition to my own Bible study and reading. What I try to do is put all the valid insights/pieces into a “whole”. What follows is my own assorted thoughts about the coming months and the next couple of years. Take the following to God before putting any weight on any of it.
I believe the Jubilee, though it is announced in the seventh month on Yom Kippur, does not actually begin until Nisan in the following spring. In Exodus 12:2 God told Moses that the first month for them shall be the month that the Passover falls within. This applies to the Jubilee year as well.
The Jubilee announcement in the fall allows for a formal transition time. Some folks in Israel would need to leave their current servitude type of employment, and set up their home back in their original family’s allotment of land within their tribe’s allotment, for example. This could not be done in a day. It took time. Also, the Yom Kippur announcement of the Jubilee would prevent folks from attempting to do the transition early and thus causing confusion/disruption in the nation. Contractually obligated servitude to “pay back” debt had to have a definite ending time. Thus, formally, folks were allowed to begin the transition after the Day of Atonement. Perhaps the timing of this, being right after that Feast that calls for repentance, set the nation up with a proper/holy frame of mind so as to not disrespect or take advantage of each other during the transition, but to support one another.
The Feast of Tabernacles could then be celebrated with folks actually being back in their allotted portion of their tribe’s land, living in temporary shelters, while anticipating the transition in the coming months and also the fullness of the Jubilee year arriving in the spring – their new beginning.
This transition time would then come to a close in days before the beginning of the month of Nisan. Keep in mind, that no one knew the day or hour ahead of time when the new moon would be sited so as to start the Jubilee year. There would have been great anticipation of when the Jubilee officially and totally arrived. Life would be different from that point on, a fresh start.
So, one possibility I am wondering is if we will go home right when the Jubilee year starts this year. It is just a thought.
What is interesting to me is the these few days just before Nisan started are possibly when the 9th plague in Egypt also took place, the three days of darkness. Compare Exodus 11 with what God tells Moses in Exodus 12 about Nisan and the upcoming Passover.
I observe in the scriptures that a time of three days of some type of darkness has been used multiple times by the LORD so as to confront people with their lives and to force on them a timeout of sorts to reconsider their ways.
One time was this ninth plague. I wonder how many Egyptians after being isolated from one another for three days, reflected on the difference between their gods and the God of the children of Israel, and then later decided to go with Israel during the Exodus. In other words, it was three days to face themselves, to accept the fact that they were truly vulnerable before the Creator God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to repent, and come out of it thinking in terms of making a change in one’s life.
I think of when Saul (later Paul) had been confronted by Jesus on the road to Damascus. He was struck with blindness for three days, also being sat down doing nothing of what he had been doing up to that point, evaluating how his entire understanding of Jesus was totally wrong, seeing how in all of his efforts and self-discipline all he was able to accomplish was to end up living as the true Messiah’s enemy. During the three days he fasted, seeking God. He repented and was given a new start.
I think of Jonah, fleeing the direction from God because he did not want to see an enemy of Israel have an opportunity to come to repentance. A large fish swallowed him for three days. Jonah was closed in. His hope for life was removed. All he could do was face himself. He was forced to look into the mirror. He was humbled before the Great I AM. He repented and was given a second chance.
I think of the disciples who followed Jesus with quite a mixture of motives. When Jesus was in the grave, they had three days of wondering what happened. They were confronted with how their self-centered expectations were not in line with what God was about. They were brought to an end of themselves. When Jesus revealed Himself to them, they were able to experience a new start of knowing Jesus and receiving the Holy Spirit.
I wonder/speculate if perhaps God will do something similar in our day, that He will give the nations, or a portion of the nations a large scale time out of darkness lasting for three days.
I think of the timing of the 9th plague of Egypt, being possibly right before the beginning of Nisan, and how this year the anniversary of those same three days would fall on or about March 5th through the 9th, somewhere in there, give or take.
Along with this conjecture, I tie in the following:
Something I am watching is the close fly by of TX68, an asteriod that flew by the earth back in 2013 and will be coming by during the same window of March 5th through the 9th, this year. It is going to be very close. The JPL site that monitors close fly-bys, has a condition code of 8, at this time, on a scale of 0 to 9, with 0 being very certain of the object’s projected fly-by distance and a 9 being extreme uncertainty. It is not really known at this time how close TX68 will fly by. Right now, it could go by underneath our geostationary satellites’ orbits. With a condition code of 8, there is also a possibility it could hit the earth. At this time the JPL site presents a two day window on the fly-by which is quite large. The earth travels on its orbital elliptic quite quickly, hence increasing the possibility of an impact.
TX68’s size is such that if it does hit, it will not be an extinction level event. But it would cause some devastation in the area of impact. If it hit in the ocean, there would be a large tidal wave generated, for example.
What makes TX68 interesting to me is it’s timing and also something I came across prior.
The potential of an asteriod impact causing a time of three days of darkness for a part of the world.
I am thinking in terms of the testimony of a Puerto Rican pastor Elian Rodrigez (sp?). He has posted on YouTube over the years. He has presented just such an event. He expresses that God has revealed this to him years ago when he was a young man. He gives quite a bit of detail, including a resulting period of three days of darkness for those of us in the Unitied States.
When I heard the detail of three days of darkness in his account of what God revealed to him, my ears perked up because of the Biblical patterns of what God does to provide an opportunity of repentance before a time of change.
I have kept the Pastor’s account on the shelf, in the back of my mind, so to speak. I sensed him to be sincere, though I could not know for sure if what he was expressing was valid.
I am wondering if perhaps TX68 might be what he was referring to, so I am watching.
I believe that the Jubilee year starts this coming Nisan. I am aware that the Jewish communities are assuming an Adar 2, or a thirteenth month, and so they think/understand that the new year will begin in April with Passover taking place on/about April 21st, and Firstfruits on that 24th.
Though their understanding of the timing may be correct, I am not convinced of this. It is possible that Nisan begins in March, on or about the 9th, with Passover taking place on or about the 23rd, with Firstfruits (the anniversary of Jesus’ resurrection) on the 27th.
I am wondering if this year we may be going home. I am wondering if we might experience a major event with TX68, that will be a time for us to focus our hearts on Jesus and to get the attention of others in the body of Christ that a time of change within the Jubilee year is soon upon us.
I have been wrong before in my anticipation of endtime events unfolding in a certain way in a given year, and have done this many years. So, I am only a member of the body of Christ, sharing my thoughts with you, asking that you take anything I say to the Lord in prayer. Only He is our true teacher.
With so many nations “on the road to Damascus” with their build up of military forces in that area, I wonder if the Creator may do something similar to what He did to Paul, and during the three days of darkness, or right before then, Jesus may personally reveal himself to many individual muslims and jews in that area of the world. So, if we ever have three days of darkness, yes, it is a time to focus our hearts on only Jesus, but it will also be a time to intercede for those in the world, for the Creator will be very active.
I will be posting a part 2 in the future.
Rick S posted this video in fivedoves showing a round object right beside the sun at sun rise. I did not see it last week when it came out so my comment of it is a little old, I hope Rick sees it.
In my previous post the Paris climate conference is mentioned and the question is asked as to the reason for this world wide meeting to discuss climate change. This issue is absurd when there are no clearly different weather patterns going on in planet earth at the present time. Climate this year and the last and so on has been steady with very little variation form one year to the other so how can politicians running for president here in the USA, the Pope, the leader of France and all the world leaders meet to discuss climate change. It makes no logical sense, unless they know something we do not know and is being kept hidden and under raps by those in positions of power.
That we are near the start of the seven year Tribulation period is obvious to any student of Bible prophecy and it is sensed by the majority of the population in the world.
Now the Bible says on Luke :
25“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.…
and further on in the book of Revelation:
12I 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, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Could these events be the direct consequence of a planetary object coming to our solar system and altering the position and orbit of the solar planets. Does this planet or dead star, bring in its orbit asteroids or satellites that will be as figs dropped from a fig tree.
The Bible states that this period will be seven years of 360 days per year, will the orbit of the earth be changed to accomplish this?
So in conclusion do the politicians and religious leaders that are peddling this climate change have knowledge of the arrival of this celestial visitor that will cause chaos to the world and are keeping it hidden from the masses until it is to obvious to conceal? It is irrational to see the democratic candidates going all out for this climate change issue and only Jeb Bush going along with it in the Republican party.
If we stop the video a few seconds say 10 sec after it starts and we measure the relative sizes of the sun and the circular object they are in a ratio of 1 to 1.53 or the sun is one and a half bigger. Now the object and the sun can not be both at the same distance to the earth as that would be an impossibility from a gravitational as they would have crash together. Because the planet is lit by the rays of the sun it can not be closer than the sun to us , so it has to be beyond the sun and us. This means that the size of this object has to be much bigger than is shown in the video.

In the article below Paul Grevas has detailed the partial solar eclipse of today and the tetrad of blood moons. His web pages contained excellent charts that show the tetrad and the preceding and following lunar and solar eclipses.
In this video of Mr. Gary Stearman and Mr. Brent Miller they cover the sen seals and trumpets using the lens of modern science to give a detailed and very believing explanation of the difficult to comprehend apocalyptic literature.
The book of Revelation comes to live in this excellent lecture by Mr. Brent Miller in terms that are not only possible but almost certain to occur as explained.
It is a terrible scenario to contemplate being alive at this period of time that is at the door already.
Jesus is the only path to salvation and safety from the wrath to come. Repent and call on His name as your Lord and Savior and He will deliver you.
Luis Vega has written this thought provoking and exposure article to warn of the coming critical dates in next September.
To the believer in Jesus Christ these exposures serve as a warning to the nearness of the Rapture and the coming Apocalypse.
Satan is preparing his followers for the coming seven years of battle for the soul body and spirit of humanity. The sides are drawn in such a manner that there will be no neutral ground to take.
You will have to choose to follow Jesus or Satan and your decision will affect your eternal destiny. You will enter the Kingdom of Jesus Christ or spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.
