The view from the wall

habakkuk-2-1I will stand my watch
And set myself on the rampart,
And watch to see what He will say to me,
And what I will answer when I am corrected. Habakkuk 2:1

In November 2016 another great earthquake struck the land, during a supermoon. It happened in the area of north Canterbury – with aftershocks in Seddon. This one was different though, as the scientists had never seen anything like it. Two huge earthquakes had happened simultaneously. Two earthquakes, that lasted two minutes, with two people dead, affecting two islands (the North and South Island) – and the land underwent a two metre shift south of Marlborough.

Wellington was struck along with Kaikoura. Parliamentary Service released CCTV footage from the Speaker’s corridor, showing portraits of previous Prime Ministers swaying and banging against the walls.

Strange lights flashed across the horizon in Wellington while the earth shook. The eerie lights were an extremely rare occurrence. After the earthquake, a huge storm struck the Wellington area.

I noted the strange signs, and the pattern of twos.

“Lord, I see the signs. “I know we are in a fault zone – but why is the land shaking so violently lately? What do want to say?” I asked.

The King replied, “Under three things the earth trembles, under four it cannot bear up:
a servant who becomes king, a godless fool who gets plenty to eat, a contemptible woman who gets
married, and a servant who displaces her mistress.” Proverbs 30:21-23 (NIV)

“Can you please explain the verse?” I asked.

“The context is about godless servants who have stepped outside of their delegated authority. These stewards are selling land that is not theirs to sell, and they are behaving in a contemptible manner.”

“The earth indeed trembles. Under what will it not bear up?” I asked.

“You will see. I have given you the context. Now write what I show you,” the King advised.

I saw myself on a castle wall. I was there with the watchers, scanning the land with binoculars. But it was dark.

The day before the earthquake in November 2016, a self-appointed bishop lifted his voice; “The earth convulses under the weight of certain human sin. And it says it spews itself up after a while. That’s natural disasters. ‘Cause nature was never created to carry the bondage of our iniquity. And so you get earthquakes. Take note because you’ll forget it out the door. But next year if this happens you’ll know why.”

Pointing to the ruined church in the distance, he said “See, massive earthquakes have already hit in Christchurch and you could have just about predicted that one.”

When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” I muttered from Psalm 11:3, ignoring the self-appointed bishop.

I went to the control tower and called the King. “We need to hear from you – not him!” I said.

“Go back to the wall, and switch to infra-red,” the King said. Grabbing the infra-red binoculars, I looked out over the land.

The gates of my country were wide open. Foreigners from the most populous place in the world were streaming in to buy the land. They were being freely admitted at the gates, after waving great wads of cash at the government. The children of the land are being displaced by them.

Cries of protest are being met with accusations of racism.

Globalists had put a name over the gates, and it was called “TRADE.”

“Trade?” I asked.

“Free trade is good trade!” I heard the globalists tell our little country of 4 million.

“The NZ-China free trade agreement started this. It didn’t put restrictions on house sales to overseas buyers,” the King explained.

“It’s not free,” He added. “New Zealanders are suffering because the wealthy 1 per cent from other countries buying the houses are driving up prices to levels they can’t afford. Because 1 per cent of China is over 10 million people, it’s the most obvious example. This is also destabilising your economy.”

“So it’s not about the earth convulsing under the weight of sin?” I asked.

“No. I am trying to warn you that Babylon is rising. It’s a Luciferian world government. His ministers are getting rich through trade. Look at the King of Tyre in Ezekiel 28;

By his wisdom and understanding he gained wealth for himself and amassed gold and silver in his treasuries. By his great skill in trading he increased his wealth, and because of his wealth his heart grew proud.

Lucifer, the ordained guardian in Eden, was and is the real power behind trade. This is what I said about Lucifer, “Through his widespread trade he was filled with violence, and he sinned.” Read it in Ezekiel 28. It’s the same spirit behind globalism, behind trade.

nzquakekaikoura-jpgYour laws are being changed, and your land is being destroyed by globalism. Keep watch, because you need to explain what is happening.

When you sing the words to your national anthem, I hear. I take it seriously, even when your country sings it just as a song.  The fight is sneaky, and insidious – and it’s not just about trade.  The family, the building block of the nation and its culture is also under attack.

Ben Carson, an American leader, warned “If you look at the writings of the neo Marxists, when they talk about the new world order, there were two fundamental things in their way – the Judeo Christian faith, and their strong families. Those were the things that had to be attacked. There’s a book published in 1958 called The Naked Communist by Cleon Skousen, which lays out the whole agenda. This stuff is not secret, you can read about it – in Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for radicals.  It’s a quick easy read, you can see all the things that are happening today.”

“Come with me,” the King said. I went from the castle wall to a dormitory. A series of rooms led off the main corridor. I entered the long corridor at room 2010.

Room 2010

sleeping-churchWalking into the room, I saw that everyone was asleep. I could hear cicadas outside – and snoring. Even the guards of the land were sleeping. In September, the King shook the sleeping people gently. “Wake up!” he said.

Room 2011

The name of the room was ‘Christchurch.’ It was February 2011. I saw globalist Julia Gillard, the unelected leader from Australia give an address to the New Zealand parliament. She was the first foreign leader ever to do so – and she did not have the authority to say what she was saying, as she’d deposed the governor of her own land.

Gillard was praising neo-liberal economics, trade liberalisation and free trade agreements.

Looking into the future, she extolled the Trans Pacific Partnership, of which New Zealand had been a founding partner since 2005. “I was proud to stand with Prime Minister Key, President Obama and our seven other partners in November last year… pledging to the make the expanded Partnership a reality by the time of APEC this year. The Partnership could be a stepping stone to an Asia Pacific Free Trade Area. If we achieve that, we will create a free trade community as significant as the EU or NAFTA. A zone of trade, investment, jobs as big as the Pacific itself.”

“Wake up!” the King said six days later, as the land shook violently in Christchurch. The Cathedral was destroyed, and 185 people died.

Room 2013

seddon-and-beehiveThe name of room 2013 was ‘Seddon.’ Richard Seddon had been the nation’s longest-serving prime minister. There was a prominent statue of him outside Parliament Buildings. Seddon had come to represent the authority of the state in New Zealand.

The parliament had just made marriage between homosexuals law, even though there was no mandate for it or referendum about it. In the time it was being passed into law, the land suffered the worst drought in seventy years.

I watched a member of the parliament mock the Church, and quote the Bible at them. “Don’t make this into a big deal,” he sneered; “Life will go on …”

“One of the messages that I had was that this bill was the cause of our drought. Well in the Pakuranga electorate this morning it was pouring with rain. We had the most enormous gay rainbow across my electorate …”

In May 2014 of the following year, the traitor would be unceremoniously sacked from Cabinet following revelations he’d approached police seeking information into a criminal case being taken against Donghua Liu, a corrupt Chinese businessman and National Party donor.

But in the meantime, he had the floor.

He stopped while the parliament laughed. “It has to be a sign, sir, it has to be a sign. If you are a believer it certainly is a sign. Can I finish for all those who are concerned about this with a quote from the Bible; Deuteronomy 1:29, Be ye not afraid.”

He did not see that the context of the passage he’d quoted from was about rebellion against the King.

“Be afraid!” the King retorted, and indeed, there was a sign. Three days before homosexual marriage became legal, there was another earthquake, this time in Seddon.

No-one noticed the authority of the state in New Zealand being shaken.

Room 2014

eketahuna-nzThe name of this room was Eketahuna, It is considered by some to be the stereotypical rural New Zealand town, a place occasionally used in conversation to represent “the real New Zealand.” It was marked by a giant Kiwi.

On Wellington Anniversary Day, the 20th January 2014, the land shook at Eketahuna.

During the earthquake, one of two giant eagles installed at Wellington airport to commemorate the film the Hobbit swung wildly from side to side, crashing to the ground at the gate into the land.

He said to those on the walls, “Put the trumpet to your lips! An eagle is over the house of the LORD because the people have broken my covenant and rebelled against my law.” Hosea 8:1

No-one noticed the King trying to shake real, rural New Zealand awake. Meanwhile, the first big debate about foreign land sales took place, when the Crafar Farms were sold to a Chinese investor.

Two years passed. So much land had been sold that the children of the land could no longer afford to buy a house in Auckland, the land’s largest city. I saw something I’d never seen before, people forced to live in cars while more than 30,000 houses owned by foreign investors sat empty.

Room 2016

The name of this room was ‘Apec,’ which stands for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. In the face of an increasing rise in anti-globalisation sentiment, Bollard, the former globalist governor of New Zealand’s central bank said Apec would achieve the globalist’s aims in incremental steps.

On the 14th November 2016 globalist John Kerry, the American Secretary of State, met globalist prime minister John Key at Wellington. They were worried about the TPPA – the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement not going ahead, because Trump, the new President Elect of America intended to stop it.

The people of the land did not know that the TPPA was even worse than Apec, because the non-discrimination provisions of the TPPA would prevent the Government banning TPP nationals from buying property in New Zealand.

After the meeting, John Key prepared to fly to Apec in Peru. Until he was stopped by the latest earthquake.

“Lord, what did you mean by the pattern of ‘two’s’ in this latest earthquake?” I asked.

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” He asked by way of reply, before showing me a lion roaring, an eagle swooping, a trap springing from the ground, and a trumpet sounding in a city.

Does a lion roar in the thicket when it has no prey?
Does it growl in its den when it has caught nothing?
Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground when no bait is there?
Does a trap spring up from the ground if it has not caught anything?
When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble?
When disaster comes to a city, has not the LORD caused it?
Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”
Amos 3:3-7

“What do you want us to do?” I asked.

“Keep watch. You are watching the heads of the beast appear” the King replied. “The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.” 1 Peter 4:7

Serve for my glory, for light casts no shadow.

Submit to the government, and love your neighbour, as you put on the armour of light. And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 13.

christchurch-cathedral-before-and-after

Standing in front of the ruined cathedral from 2011, the King spoke out of the book of Haggai.

He asked, “Do you remember this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?”

This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” Haggai 2.

Days of awe

LeoPeople don’t need to be believers to see that the Jewish festivals and calendar days instituted thousands of years ago, are now aligning with the signs in the sky, and major world events. 

In my last post I said I’d explain how God is speaking to those who haven’t read the Bible.  One of the ways he is speaking is by using signs in the heavens.  I’m not talking about Astrology. But if I was, I’d point out that Astrology is made up of these two words: Astro meaning “Star” and Logos meaning Jesus Christ, the Word, the Logos of God.

The devil has covered the witness of the stars with occult graffiti, but he can’t forever.  The truth is right there in our night sky, for all to see.  God is using signs in the sun, moon and stars for warning, prophecy and to show that He is in control.

Conjuction of Venus and Jupiter, 1st July 2015

Conjuction of Venus and Jupiter, 1st July 2015

For instance, last month we had the convergence of Jupiter and Venus, near the bright star Regulus, the star of the King, in the constellation of Leo.  The conjunction was right in front of the Lion’s mouth.

This is what the stars in Leo mean (from Bullinger’s ‘Witness of the Stars’);

The brightest star marks the heart of the Lion. Its ancient name is Regulus, which means treading under foot.
The next star, also of the 1st magnitude (in the tip of the tail), is named Denebola, the Judge or Lord who cometh.
The star (in the mane) is called Al Giebha (Arabic), the exaltation.
The star (on the hinder part of the back) is called Zosma, shining forth.

Can you hear the lion roar?

There is a convergence of events happening in September – involving the number 70, the U.N., the Pope, ‘climate chaos’ and a whole lot of other ungodly factors. The year ending on 13th September 2015, is a shmita year and the last year before the Jewish year of Jubilee, also coinciding with the Tetrad of blood moons.  The ‘shmita’ is the 7th year and in Hebrew, it literally means “release”.

First though I’ll start with God’s calendar.  Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets begins at sundown on the 13th September.  It’s the Jewish New Year, and the first of the High Holy Days or “Days of Awe”.  It’s also the 70th Jubilee.

The year of Jubilee happens every 50 years, after 7 lots of 7 Sabbaths (the shmita).  God declared it as a time for debt to be released, the land to have a rest, and for property to return to its original owners.  On the last day of the sixth year, the people of Israel were instructed to perform a releasing of debts (Deuteronomy 15).

This does not just involve Israel.  It’s a pattern God has given the world to follow.  The reason the world is in the state it’s in is that debt does not get released.  The last sabbath of seven years was 2008 – and God spoke to the world by having the stock market crash on September 29, 2008 when the DOW fell 777 points.

For Luciferians, Anno Lucis, the year of light begins and 2015 has been declared as the UN International Year of Light.  It’s also the UN’s 70th Anniversary and the opening of 70th session of the UN general assembly.  CERN will be giving a presentation about High Luminosity.  Also keep an eye on a project they’re doing called “Project AWAKE”.  I don’t understand the physics they’re doing, but I am able to discern occult names and connections.  CERN will be running at full power over this period.

While God is orchestrating signs, Satan is orchestrating events.

The United Nations general assembly climate summit starts on September 23, 2015.  How timely, because in May 2014 the French Foreign Minister warned we had 500 days before “climate chaos”.  What did he mean by that?  Is it going to be something that Cern’s going to do?

The 500 days expires on 24th September, the day the Pope addresses the U.S. congress on his visit to the USA from the 17th to 28th September.  The next day the Pope will address the U.N.   This is the day when the U.N. launches its ‘sustainable development’ agenda for whole world.  How convenient and coincidental is that?

Watch out for this Pope.  How can he reconcile the Vatican’s policy of no birth control with ‘sustainable development’? By the way, ‘sustainable development’ sounds altruistic, but it’s actually a communist buzzword.

Bad Moon Arising

full-moon-over-dc

I see the bad moon arising, I see trouble on the way, I see earthquakes and lightnin’, I see bad times today.

The end of the Pope’s visit and the last Tetrad moon occur on the 28th September.  I wonder if he’ll be flying back to Rome with a red blood moon in his window.

The song “Bad Moon Rising” comes to mind.

The song came out in 1969.  It was inspired by a story about a seven year covenant.  The lyrics are quite prophetic.  This is another way that God speaks; through the prophets of the world.  Fogerty from Creedance Clear Water Revival reportedly wrote that song after watching a film called The Devil and Daniel Webster”.  The film was set in 1840 New Hampshire, where poor, downtrodden farmer Jabez Stone sells his soul to “Mr. Scratch” in return for seven years of luck and prosperity.  ‘Jabez’ means sorrow or trouble.

There’s another song by Greenday called “Wake me up when September ends“.

September is not a time to be asleep.  Actually I think most of us are up and smelling the coffee, or is it sulphur?  It’s something.  I’m not a prophet, but I am a blood hound when it comes to discernment.  We need to have our own project ‘AWAKE’ so we can pray and warn people.  We don’t belong to the night.

We are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.  1 Thessalonians 5:5-7

I await the Lord’s coming but I worry about the people who don’t know him yet.  Anyway I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.

God bless.

The year of light?

S.B. Sunrise

Sunrise from the beach at the end of my street.

I go for an early morning walk during the week, along the beach at the end of my street.  It’s getting dark now, but the sunrises are so beautiful.  Did you know that NZ is the first country in the world to get the sunrise?  Here’s a photo from last month at dawn.

While walking I told the Lord I wanted to blog something about Him before Easter, and I asked what He wanted.  I felt He wanted me to blog about Him being “the Light of the World.”  I stopped at the end of the path and stretched out my arms to the sunrise, agreeing that He was indeed the light of the world.

I prayed the word from Isaiah 50:4; “Sovereign LORD, give me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. Waken me morning by morning, waken my ear to listen like one being taught.”

Have you heard that ‘listen’ and ‘silent’ have the same letters?  I listened in the silence.  It was in this beautiful spot that I got something jarring.  The thought came to check out what was happening with the Hadron Collider!  It was a strange thought.  I am not interested in physics, except for the stuff I had to learn for my industry qualifications in Information Technology.  I know they found “the God particle”, but so what?  I already know that all things hold together because of Jesus;

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  Colossians 1:17.

The apostle Paul explained to the pagans at Athens that “in him we live and move and have our being”;

 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.  And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.  From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.  God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.  ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’  As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.””

Anyway, after doing some research on Cern, I found I’d dismissed the discovery of the God particle too lightly …

1-Hadron-Collider-StargateCERN – blinded by the light.

They’ve just reopened the Hadron Collider after two years.  It’s going to restart today, 22 March 2015 – despite warnings from top scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Neil de Grasse Tyson.

The arrogance of the physicists is breathtaking.  This level of science is the definition of atheism – for some of the physicists like the inventor of the Higgs Boson.  For others, this is where the New Age meets Physics.  Cern is a constituent of Cernunnos—the Celtic horned god of the underworld.  They have a statue of Shiva the destroyer outside the Hadron Collider.  The name for the destroyer in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek it is Apollyon.  See Revelation 9, the fifth trumpet – where a fallen star is given the key to the shaft of the Abyss and demonic beings belonging to the destroyer come out.

Cern is located near the French village of Saint-Genis-Pouilly.  In Roman times it was called Apolliacum.  The town and temple were dedicated to Apollyon.

What a rabbit hole.   If you want to read more, there are many fine blogs that have done the job that the news media hasn’t.  Here’s one with a few YouTube links: https://patinthehat00.wordpress.com/tag/cern/

I don’t want to focus on the devil – and I’m not saying this is the fifth trumpet.  The Tribulation hasn’t started yet, but something’s up.  This may be the technology that the destroyer uses.  If I do have to mention the destroyer, I want it to be in relation to Jesus stamping his authority all over him.  But we need to pay attention, because what they discover at Cern will have as much of an impact as the World Wide Web, which was also created at Cern.

I have found out that the UN have declared this year “the Year of Light”.  So it’s a good time to be blogging about Jesus, who called himself “The Light of the World.”  He will be the subject of my next blog post.

Signs in the Heavens – March 2015

I am the light, Image of Christ appears in the aurora borealis above Iceland 19-3-15

‘I am the light’: Image of Christ the Redeemer appears in the aurora borealis above Iceland.

We are truly in the times of the signs, and I promised I’d blog about them.  First of all, we had Northern and Southern lights, on the 18th March 2015 from the magnetic storms hitting the planet.  Here in NZ, they went all the way up to Auckland.  Did you see them where you were?

When Jesus was asked about the signs in the end times, He said; “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars.” Luke 21:25.

Here is a wonderful sign that appeared from the Northern lights >

source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2911437/I-light-Image-Christ-Redeemer-appears-aurora-borealis-Iceland.html?printingPage=true

It confirmed something I’d prayed about earlier in the week.  I asked the Lord what He wanted me to blog about in the lead up to Easter.  “I AM the Light of the World” is the answer that came to me.  I always wait for a confirmation, and I think the picture of Him appearing in the aurora borealis is a wonderful sign.

Solar Eclipse 20-3-2015

Solar Eclipse 20-3-2015

Tomorrow there will be a solar eclipse on Friday the 19/3/15 in the northern hemisphere.  This is a solar occurrence that has never happened before in human history.  It coincides with the day of the Spring (and Autumn) Equinox and the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical calendar year.  “The concurrence and rarity of this natural event, together with the times in which we live, indicates the finger of God,” Gidon Ariel, an Israeli Orthodox Jew told Breaking Israel News.  Source: http://www.breakingchristiannews.com/articles/display_art.html?ID=15598

The 3rd blood moon of the Tetrad occurs next month on April 4th.  A Tetrad is where there are four lunar eclipses in a row.

Here’s a handy link if you want to track the eclipses: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/uk/london?iso=20150320

I’m down in the southern hemisphere so I won’t see tomorrow’s eclipse, but I’d be interested in hearing about what you see in the northern part of the world.

 

Within ancient ink there is a living God

2015

Happy New Year!

Before Christmas I wrote about Jesus being the author and finisher of our faith. 

I wrote about his nail scarred hands writing and turning the pages of the Bible, the book he inspired.

The day after I wrote about it, this video clip was played at church;
https://skitguys.com/videos/item/study-says-the-writer

I like how it says; “Within ancient ink there is a living God.”

The author and finisher; and the race

Did you know the author of the Bible wrote about a race?

Heb12-prv“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.
And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”  Hebrews 12:1

We’ve all got a race to run, a race that we were entered in before we were even born.  Think about that!

Do you know the race is on; and the author has got his eye on you?

It’s no ordinary race. Some of you may be already running. You may be the first in your family line to run, or you may be the last.

Sometimes you will run, sometimes you will walk, sometimes you will stumble and fall, and sometimes, you will rise on the wings of an eagle. Those are the best times, when you can stop running, wing it and see what the eagle sees.

I’ll leave you with this verse for the times when you feel discouraged
“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

I’ve written about my own race in Chapter 79 The year of inheritance, in case you are interested.  I have referred to myself in the chapter as “the Princess”, but I will be changing her to myself in accordance to the advice I got from Publishers. Anyway, here it is;
https://kingdom777.wordpress.com/2014/07/26/chapter-79-the-year-of-inheritance/

Putting the author in authority

hebrews-12-2I probably won’t be blogging much over the next few weeks.  I’ve tasked myself with getting my story “The Kingdom” into an e-Book while I’ve got a break from work.  I’ve lost the plot and need a lot of guidance and help from God getting it finished. 

When I first wrote this story, it didn’t have a plot. I’d simply kept a rough sort of journal made up of individual chapters where I’d kept a record of my spiritual journey with God.  Then I strung them all together and called it “The Kingdom”.  I got a book report back from some Christian Publishers that said the manuscript needed 51 to 250 hours of structural editing.

They did say; “This is a really awesome story with a fabulous blend of unusual elements. It has the potential to wield a strong and powerful impact if the issues of ‘show don’t tell’ are addressed.”

I’m praying about what to change.  I know the Lord understands because He is an author himself.

I started tidying the story up last week.  On Saturday night I added this paragraph to a chapter called “The Kingdom of God Within”;

“The Author and finisher of faith held to his word, his nail scarred hands turning the pages of his living book, a book that is alive and active.   The words and verses contained his breath, his will for creation.
In order for faith to come, people needed to hear him – and hearing came from his word.”

Hebrews_12-2The Lord must have liked it because His authorship of the Bible was the subject of the sermon the next morning (Sunday 7th Dec).

I found out that author and authority share the same root word.

 When Jesus was on earth, He taught with authority, not as the teachers of the law.  You can read that in Mark chapter 1, and in John chapter 1 you can read that Jesus was the LOGOS, the Word of God.

If you want to find out what something in a book means, you go to the author.  He is the authority.

May you look to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.  I sure will be in my attempts at getting the second draft of “The Kingdom” finished.

Signs in the heavens, October 2014

Lunar_Eclipse_Masterton_1After playing cards on Wednesday night I stopped to look up at the lunar eclipse.  It was a chilly spring night on the 8th October 2014.  The full moon was out, unobscured by the clouds which had blocked the first blood moon of the 15th April.    

Lunar eclipses are common, but a Tetrad where there are four lunar eclipses in a row is not.  This Tetrad is even more unusual because there is a solar eclipse in the mix.  When the last Tetrad occurred in 1967 Israel had the Six Day war.  Israel considers blood moons to be an omen of war and when there is a solar eclipse it’s an omen of war for the other 70 nations.   Jesus did say that prior to His return there would be wars and rumours of wars.

As the moon slowly moved into the Earth’s shadow creating a spooky sight I wondered what constellation the sun was in.  I opened “Stellarium” on my laptop, a free planetarium program which is great for star-gazing.

8-10-14 Blood Moon

Virgo, 8th October 2014, night of second blood moon of the Tetrad.

The sun was on Virgo’s arm, as she held a branch in her hand.  Virgo is a significant sign.  The prophet Isaiah stared 700 years into the future and gave Ahaz king of Judah a prophecy involving a virgin and Son.

Ahaz the King of Judah was at war.  Isaiah said; “Ask a sign for yourself from your God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above.”
But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I test the Lord.”  Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”

Immanuel means “God with us”. We know that Virgo means the virgin, but the meaning of the constellations was lost in Babylon. Virgo holds a branch in her left hand, and an ear of corn in the other.  The brightest star in Virgo is Spica.  Spica has an ancient name, handed down to us in all the star-maps. It is called in Arabic Al Zimach, which means the BRANCH.  What was the meaning of the branch?  The BRANCH was the title of a servant of God who would come to remove the sin of this land.

“Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.”  Zechariah 3:8-10. 

The stone in Zechariah’s prophecy represents Jesus, and the seven eyes represent angels and churches.

The ear of corn in Virgo’s hand represents a harvest.  When Jesus was on Earth, He went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.  Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”  Matthew 9:35.

2migiddo-church-7I moved my attention to the moon, which was now a rusty shade of red.  The moon was in Pisces.   The sign of PISCES means “Their blessings in abeyance” (temporary cessation or suspension).  The three constellations in PISCES are;

  1. THE BAND–bound, but binding their great enemy Cetus, the sea monster.  (The beast up out of the sea in Revelation 13).
  1. ANDROMEDA (The Chained Woman). The Redeemed in their bondage and affliction.
  1. CEPHEUS (The King). Their Redeemer coming to rule. The brightest star is called Al Deramin, which means coming quickly. The next is named Al Phirk (Arabic), the Redeemer.

Jesus said “Behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 12:13-14.

What did he mean, coming quickly?  It’s been 2000 years.  The Lord has no sense of time! “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”  2 peter 3:8-9.

The prophet Daniel said; “The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.” Daniel 9:26. Coming like a flood means events will speed up.

Besides the blood moon, there were two lots of meteor showers in the northern hemisphere; October 5th-6th the Camelopardalids and October 6th-9th the Draconids (from Draco).

This blood moon happened on the Jewish feast of Sukkot, which means “the in-gathering”.

Lulav

Sukkot celebrates the harvest.  It is called The Feast of Tabernacles. It will be a time for the survivors of the nations to bow before the King (Zechariah 14:16).  After the crops were gathered from the land God commanded a festival, where the Israelites were to take a bundle of branches from four different trees;
“On the first day, you must take for yourself a fruit of the citron tree, an unopened palm frond (lulav), myrtle branches, and willows [that grow near] the brook. You shall rejoice before God for seven days.”  Leviticus 23:40

It was called “Lulav”.  Is it a coincidence that the children of Israel are waving branches at Sukkot?  I don’t think so.

Jesus was familiar with the day.  In John 7 Jesus did not go to the Festival of Tabernacles at first.  Jesus said to his brothers “You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”
After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee. However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.
Jesus has not yet fulfilled this Feast but the day is coming when He will.  http://kswptim.wordpress.com/page/3/

A future sign in the heavens

I study the signs because it helps me understand the scriptures.  God is still using the signs of the heavens in His word.  For instance, in Revelation 12; “A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.

Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.” Revelation 12-6

The word for “snatched up” means “Harpazo”.  Harpazo is defined as seize by force; snatch up, suddenly and decisively – like someone seizing bounty (spoil, a prize); to take by an open display of force (i.e. not covertly or secretly).
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).

This is what is meant by the Rapture.  I don’t know when this will be, before the Tribulation or during.  For the persecuted Church, the Tribulation has already begun.  What will be happening in the heavens when this sign appears?

The Lord expects His Church to be like the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times.  It is really important now, because just like in Jesus’s day, people are feeling harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 

I am here at your service.  I know my Bible, I have a gift of discernment, and I learn as much as I can about what I see.  A useful book is one called “The Witness of the Stars”, written by EW Bullinger in 1893.  He’s not going to mind if you download it for free.

If you don’t know God, I hope you can see there is a lot more to Him and the Bible than you may have been led to believe.  I have a heart for people to know God and take Him at His word.   If you have any questions I will do my best to answer them.
