March 24, 2016 Why today is the true Passover this year and not on April 23!

The fallowing article explains very well the reason why the year started in March 9 at night so Nissan 1 fell on March 9-10 and Passover on March 23-24 today.

Last night there was a blood moon eclipse making it another consecutive year where the eclipses have fallen on Passover and Sukkot which makes a sextet of blood moons falling in sacred Holidays of our Lord.

This makes this year also a year of Perfect Order which means that the feasts of the Lord fall on the exact days that they were instructed to Moses and the same dates occurring at Jesus crucifixion.

I see also the possibility of the Rapture to be on Pentecost as well as next Sunday on Easter. Thanks Greg for your wise words.

Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?


Did God Intend a Sextet of Blood Moons ?

The 2016 Jewish Calendar is Wrong

How does God reckon the seasons ?

Genesis 1:14 says “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:”   Therefore, the sun and the moon are used to measure time for seasons, days and years.

When God prepared Israel to move out of Egypt,  he began His teaching in preparation of the first Passover.  This was to be Israel’s first month for calendar reckoning. (Exodus 12:2)    In the tenth day of this month each family was to choose a lamb.  On the fourteenth day, the Lamb would be killed and the blood applied to the door lintels of each family’s home.  This was the preparation for the Lord’s Passover, the night the first born of Egypt would be killed as a judgment against all gods of Egypt.  All those covered by the blood of the Lamb would be “passed over” and saved from the angel of death.

Following Passover, God established the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a seven day feast, where all leaven would be purged from each home.  Leaven represented sin.  The first day and last day of this feast was to be an holy convocation.  This is an everlasting ordinance for Israel.  The month Israel came out of Egypt was Abib, or Nisan. (Exodus 13:4)

The Feast of Unleavened Bread was for a sign upon Israel’s hand and a memorial between their eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in their mouths because it was with God’s mighty hand that He brought Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 13:9)

Israel was commanded to keep this ordinance (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in his season from year to year.  This ordinance was emphasized again in Numbers 9:2 where the “children of Israel were commanded to keep the Passover at the appointed season.

The Scriptures do not provide for a “leap year” alteration of the seasons.  When Israel came into the land which God gave them, these feasts to the Lord were aligned with the agricultural seasons.  We see this in the Feast of First Fruits.  This feast celebrated the barley harvest which generally occurred after the Spring Equinox in the first month.  This is our month of March.

Following the feast of First Fruits was the Feast of Weeks or Shauvot  which was celebrated 50 days later.  This was in accordance with the wheat harvest.  Any change in the seasons, particularly by a month, would necessarily interfere with the stages of growth of the barley and wheat harvests.   Both of these are highly significant for the First Fruits “wave sheaf offering” (Leviticus 23:10-11) and the Shauvot “two loaf wave offering” (Leviticus 23:16-17).  The grains which were used ceremonially in Temple practices would be past harvest if delayed an additional month.

The Jewish tradition of adding a thirteenth month of Adar II to account for a leap year, as they have done in 2016,  is without biblical support.  Adding a leap year to the Jewish lunar calendar is an attempt to align their lunar calendar with the solar calendar.   The application of the traditions of men over the literal teaching of Scripture produces error.

Therefore, the Scriptures teach that the first month is associated with the Spring Equinox in spite of the Jewish leap year tradition.  In Year 2016, the new moon signaling the first month of Abib or Nisan appeared on March 9.

The Spring Equinox falls on March 20 or Nisan 10.  Passover falls on Nisan 14 which is March 23/24, 2016.

Jewish reckoning of the Leviticus 23 feasts in 2016 will result in each holy day being celebrated one month late.  Relying on Israel for any prophetic insight is unwarranted.  God says they have a spirit of slumber such that they should not see and should not hear. (Romans 11:8)

Why is this important ?   It is important because the seven feasts are prophetic.  God’s plan follows the prophetic pattern and teaching of these seven feasts.  If we know the correct feast day, we can be wise watchers.

Did God intend a sextet of Blood Moons rather than the tetrad of 2014/15 ?   Are we missing some materially important prophetic message ?   Torah Calendar has Nisan in March, unlike the Jews who place it in April this year.

There are two lunar eclipses in 2016 occurring again on Passover and Tabernacles when we follow the Scriptures command to keep the feasts in their respective seasons.   These 2016 blood moons, together with the tetrad of blood moons for 2014 and 2015  are unique.  Now the six feast day blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016 become a Sextet of Blood Moons.   This may have profoundly significant prophetic implications.

Additionally, the 2016 Feast of Pentecost commences on the evening celebration of Israel’s day of national independence, May 14, 2016.

As for me, I am watching Pentecost 2016 as a potential “rapture” window for the Church.  The weekend of May 14/15, 2016 is a watch date.

As I have written in the past, a Jewish Independence Day/Jewish Holy Day removal of “Christ’s Own” (1 Corinthians 15:20-28) could be the event which, in part, fulfills Romans 11:11.  Could it be the Day of Provocation to Jewish jealousy ?

March 8, 2015 Will Obama make a seven year covenant on March 22 using the UN to ram it to Israel?

Obama to Make Desperate Last-Ditch Bid for Mid-East Peace by Way of Israel Enemy – the UN

“I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Yehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there for My people and for My heritage Yisrael whom they have scattered among the nations and divided My land.” Joel 4:2 (The Israel Bible™)

As his term runs down, US President Barack Obama plans to make one more desperate bid for peace between Israel and the Palestinians by way of an international body known to be hostile to Israel – the United Nations (UN).

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Obama’s last-ditch effort to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations is likely to include a UN Security Council resolution which would set a framework for a viable deal.

Such a resolution would demand concessions from both Israel and the Palestinians, the WSJ reported senior US officials as saying, despite the Palestinians’ historical refusal to make any concessions whatsoever.

The UN move would be a welcome one to the Palestinian Authority (PA), headed by Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, which has pushed for the establishment of an international body to mediate peace talks, preferring to appeal to external parties who may be more sympathetic to the Palestinian cause than to deal directly with Israel.

Israel, on the other hand, has rejected external interference from non-concerned parties in the belief that direct talks are the best way to an agreement. The most recent outside push for talks came from France, which put forward a plan for resuming negotiations while simultaneously threatening to recognize the Palestinian state out-of-hand if no terms were reached. The French plan was dismissed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said it was “doomed to fail.”

Adding insult to injury, the United Nations is widely recognized as unfairly critical of Israel, which has been subject to disproportionately more UN resolutions than any other country. The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has directly blamed Israel again and again for violence and unrest in the region.

Travel through 3,000 years of Jewish history

In January, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon justified the ongoing wave of Palestinian terror against Israel by announcing, “It is human nature to resist occupation.” If the UN were to mediate a peace agreement, there is little doubt that its anti-Israel bias would deeply color proceedings.

The WSJ report added that other initiatives under consideration in Obama’s final grasp at Middle East peace included a presidential speech or a statement from the Quartet (comprised of the US, the European Union, the UN, and Russia).

Compromises suggested by the proverbial UN resolution could include Israel freezing construction in Judea and Samaria and acknowledging East Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital on one side, and Palestine recognizing Israel as a Jewish state and giving up right of return on the other.

A land swap would be implemented, with Israel withdrawing to pre-1967 borders.

The Bible firmly establishes Judea and Samaria, today known as the West Bank, as within the historical borders of the God-given land of Israel, and a prophecy in the Book of Joel warns that all nations which seek to divide Israel will meet judgement. However, Israel’s ancient claim goes largely unrecognized by modern world powers.

Israel has yet to respond to the possibility of such a plan. Past efforts by the Obama administration to mediate peace between Israel and the Palestinians have failed, and most Israeli officials do not see Obama, whose relations with Netanyahu are frosty, as a friend to Israel.

Feb 24, 2016 Will the resurrection and the Rapture be next Month on Feast of First Fruits Easter?

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.

Feb 23, 2016 Will Asteroid 2013 TX68 hit earth bringing three days of darkness and the Rapture

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.

Douglas Henney (21 Feb 2016)
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.

Feb 22, 2016 Israel at the crossroad of Now Prophecies

For students of Bible prophecy the rebirth of the State of Israel was a necessary condition to know that the end time prophecies started to happen.

These end times prophecies all deal with the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of His Kingdom through the State of Israel.

Most of the people in the world have heard of the word Apocalypse although the true meaning of the word is not known. The word has an origin in the Bible and it means the unveiling or Revelation and it describes a prophetic vision of the future given to the Apostle John. It is for a period of seven years and the whole vision is Israel centered.

Bill Salus has written a book the Now Prophecies in which he tries to fit all these prophecies in a timeline that is logical, derived by the same words of the prophecy involved.

The difficulty of trying to fit a time of their fulfillment is very big as all of the nations of the world are involved in these prophecies. Think of a big 5,000 piece puzzle without the picture in front. Bill sees these prophecies being fulfilled before the seven year Tribulation and I see them fulfilled inside the seven years. The four horses of the Apocalypse with its killing of 1/4 of humanity encompasses all these prophecies together in my opinion.

In my way of treating the Now prophecies the next events to take place pertain to the Rapture and the start of the Apocalypse or the last of the 70 weeks of years of the prophet Daniel.

To my understanding it is logical for the final week of years to start at the same feast as the last of the 69 preceding week of years ended and that is in the cutting off of Messiah which occurred in Passover of 32 AD at the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
