“The fourth and last lunar eclipse of 2020 occurred on Monday, November 30. There will be one more full moon this year on December 29th.
Here we are, two weeks later on Monday, December 14th, a total Solar Eclipse occurs just 7 days prior to the Winter Solstice on the 21st. This will be the longest and darkest night of the year. Without the Moon we have no light at all at night except from the stars.
There has been a “War on Christmas” for thousands of years. Despite the name, it is not Christian. Whenever the Word of God is compared to Traditions of Man there is conflict. Whenever the House of Israel has been confronted by other nations, i.e. Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome, there has been conflict. Many of Israel have forsaken God’s Commandments against these pagan ways and followed them. On the other hand, many of Israel have lost their lives standing up for the Commandments of the God against these pagan nations and their traditions.
“A grapevine has been planted outside of the Father. But being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”
There has been a “special relationship” between these two countries since their birth. They represent the two sons of Joseph, son of Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh. Family ties are hard to be broken. These two were born into Egypt in the years of plenty. Their father provided food for everyone in the time of the famine and was greatly admired. Although they’ve had their differences, like brothers, they always settle them and get along with each other in peace. This relationship is now being threatened to come to an end in hostility. It will be a time of Great Tribulation.
Go and Find your Bible. Open to the Table of Contents and take a look. First thing you will see is a list of sixty-six books. How did all of these books come to be known as The Bible? What is the Bible about? Who are the main characters in the Bible? Is it just a history book or is it absolutely relevant to the present day? Let’s answer these questions by focusing on the three main characters that appear and reappear throughout the Bible. The three main characters are especially relevant to the present day.
It is indeed a momentous occasion for America. Four hundred years ago, on November 11, 1620, the Pilgrims came ashore on land. That is now in Provincetown on Cape Cod. The Pilgrims’ story is a central theme in the history and culture of the United States of America. The Pilgrim Fathers were that band of Puritans who founded the colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620.
A pilgrim is defined a person who journeys a long distance to some sacred place as an act of devotion. They were escaping religious persecution and going to the Promised Land.
The Pilgrims Landing
“PROVINCETOWN – The year 1620 is etched in the annals of world history. It is the year a group of English settlers known as the Pilgrims seeking religious freedom boarded their ship, Mayflower. They braved a hazardous trip across the Atlantic Ocean to establish a new home.”
Seeing this date etched in Plymouth Rock is like seeing the writing on the Wall. “Mene, mene, teckel, upharsin” in the time of Daniel spelled the end for the Babylonian king. It marks an especially important date for the people of God.
Question: Why hasn’t God intervened on the tyrants throughout history to prevent far worse atrocities than in the Old Testament days in which He did intervene?
A tyrant is a king or ruler who uses his power oppressively or unjustly. Any despotic person. Tyranny is the arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power, despotic abuse of power; oppression
The tyrants in the earth are becoming plainly visible and God has every intention of intervening!
Thus saith the LORD, “To Me belongs vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste… And He shall say, ‘Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted?'”
The Feast of Harvest, the ingathering of the Firstfruits into the House of God has begun at sunset which is at 6:49 PM, October 2, 2020. The full moon in harvest time is so called the Harvest Moon because it rises as the sun sets and gives light to the reapers all night long. Then as the moon goes down, the sun begins to rise.
“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in THE DAY that the LORD binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound.”
Jesus told a parable of the harvest of the ‘Wheat and the Tares’. When he had finished and everyone went home, his disciples came and asked him to explain it to them. Here’s what he said:
The Feast of Tabernacles is the third and final Hebrew pilgrim festival called for by God. Also known as the Feast of Ingathering, it follows the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the Feast of Weeks. It has been observed by Hebrews for generations and will occur this year from October 2nd through October 9th, 2020. What is the Feast of Tabernacles and what is its significance?
After Israel was delivered out of their oppression by Moses, the LORD made them to dwell in tabernacles. In Hebrew these dwellings were called succoth which means ‘booths,’ ‘tents,’ or ‘tabernacles.’ The temporary shelters were made of interwoven branches that protected them in the wilderness.
“And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD… You shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths: That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”
The word jubile can mean, ‘the sound of a trumpet,’ ‘a trumpet-blast of liberty’ and/or ‘a shout of joy’. A Trumpet is commanded to sound in the Jubilee Year as signal of the year of release for all the people who will hear the sound and come to the ingathering of the congregation. It is a day of great rejoicing for the House of Israel, a Day of Atonement, salvation, liberty, restoration and comfort. In days of ole, the Jubilee year was announced by a blast on a shofar, an instrument made from a ram’s horn, during that year’s Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement.
Question: What is the meaning of “The Valley of Dry Bones”?
The Valley of Dry Bones is a reference to Ezekiel chapter 37 where we find him being carried away and set down in a valley filled with bones. They are a disconnected, dried up body whose bones are scattered, without life. Their hope is gone.
