The following is from Brother Mark Harris of https://whenisthenewmoon.com/

Hello To All The Brethren Worldwide!

The New Moon was sighted this evening in Israel, Tuesday, September 27th, 2022! The Fall Feast Season has begun! That means Yom Teruah/The Feast of Trumpets/First Day of the 7th Month is upon us!

Therefore the first day of the Seventh Month starts Tonight (Tuesday) September 27th, evening at sundown, and goes through (Wednesday) September, 28th.

Sighted By: Chris Guenther, Tchiya Jenkins, followed by three others.

Date Sighted: Tuesday, September 27th, 2022! 

Biblical Hebrew Month: This is the Seventh Biblical Hebrew Month, also known as Tishrei.

Look toward the western sky this evening and see if you can see the New Moon!

Here are the Dates on which we will be celebrating Yah’s Appointed Feasts (Leviticus 23) this year, 2022.

Yom Teruah/The Feast of Trumpets/First Day of the 7th Month  –  Wednesday, September 28th 
(Starting the night before on the 27th, New Moon Sited in Israel, and worldwide, on Tuesday, Sept 27th)

Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement/10th Day of the 7th Month  –  Friday, October 7th 
(Starting the night before on October 6th)

Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles/15th Day of the 7th Month  –  Wednesday, October 12th

Shabbat During Feast  –  Saturday, October 15th 
(Starting the night before on October 14th)

Last Great Day  –  Wednesday, October 19th 
(Starting the night before on October 18th)

A few things to remember…

Every 7 years, Yah has ordained a year of release called the Shemitah (Leviticus 25). 
This is it! The Shemitah! 

And, as it says in Deuteronomy 31, We’ll be reading the whole Torah at the Feast!

Deuteronomy 31:9-13 So Moses wrote this law and delivered it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel. And Moses commanded them, saying: “At the end of every seven years, at the appointed time in the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles, when all Israel comes to appear before YHWH your Elohim in the place which He chooses, you shall read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn to fear YHWH your Elohim and carefully observe all the words of this law, and that their children, who have not known it, may hear and learn to fear YHWH your Elohim as long as you live in the land which you cross the Jordan to possess.”

We should gather together men, women, and children to read the Book of the Law together in its entirety! What are we to learn from reading it? That we may hear and learn to fear YHWH and obey it!

God’s Calendar, Happy New Year, 5782, Waiting on the New Moon

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2022 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

The Lord God says the New Year begins in the spring in the Hebrew month of Nisan.

Moses referred to this month as Abib. Exodus 13:4 On this day in the month of Abib, you are about to go forth. Per Strong’s Concordance, Abib means: fresh, young barley ears; month of ear-forming, of greening of crop, of growing green; month of Exodus and Passover.

The month is called Nisan in Nehemiah 2:1 And it came about in the month Nisan… It means “their flight”. Israel took “their flight” out of Egypt in Nisan. The meaning of month Nisan is a reminder to Israel. Abib is a reminder to the time of the year, during the first fruits of the barley harvest.

The Jewish calendar is based on three astronomical phenomena. These three are independent of each other.

1) Rotation of the Earth about its axis (a day):

2) Revolution of the moon about the Earth (a month): The average time for the moon to revolve around the Earth is 29.5 days. A pure lunar calendar has a minimum of 354 days in a year.

3) Revolution of the Earth about the sun (a year): The Earth revolves around the sun in about 365¼ days. A pure solar calendar has 12.4 lunar months.

The Jewish calendar coordinates all three of these astronomical phenomena. It is based on moon cycles instead of sun cycles. “Leap months” are added to sync up with sun cycles. Prior to the 4th century, the calendar was determined by observation. The calendar has been calculated mathematically since 4th century. Years are numbered from creation.

A Hebrew Year always contains 12 Hebrew months in a regular year or 13 Hebrew months in a leap year.

https://paulthepoke.com/?s=rosh+chodesh

How is a new moon or a new month determined? In this particular case, we are talking about the New Year. God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. It is called Rosh Chodesh which means “head of the month”. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. So, the new moon could be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

By definition, a new moon is proclaimed when the first little sliver emerges from a darkened moon. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon. The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown.

Determining a new month by God’s instructions is not a mathematical calculation.

So when will the new moon be identified? This will determine the precise days of the Spring Feasts.

Tonight, two witnesses will begin observing for that little sliver of the new moon…

Rosh Chodesh, Head of the Month

The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah/Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets, begins at the sighting of the new moon in a few days.

How is a new moon or a new month determined on the Hebrew calendar? God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. It is called Rosh Chodesh which means “head of the month”.

At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. So, the new moon could be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

By definition, a new moon is proclaimed when the first little sliver emerges from a darkened moon. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon. The month begins at the sighting of the new moon.

Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown. Why two witnesses? This concept is part of Jewish law. 

Deuteronomy 19:15-21 A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed. If a malicious witness rises up against a man to accuse him of wrongdoing, then both the men who have the dispute shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges who will be in office in those days. The judges shall investigate thoroughly, and if the witness is a false witness and he has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him just as he had intended to do to his brother. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you. The rest will hear and be afraid, and will never again do such an evil thing among you. Thus you shall not show pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

Two or more witnesses to the new moon are legally establishing as fact per the law.

Brother Mark Harris explains the Creator’s Calendar in the YouTube video below.

Here is a link to his affiliated website. http://WhenIsTheNewMoon.com

If this concept was applied today, would society be different? Would people spread lie(s) about other people if they knew the consequence would be the punishment of the lie(s) they were spreading?

In the future, God will have two people bear witness to the world that humanity is sinful. With these two witnesses, He is establishing a legal declaration of evidence. If God is wrong and lying about humanity, He would bring judgment accordingly upon Himself per the law in Deuteronomy 19

Revelation 11:3 And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

God’s two witnesses will be falsely accused and put to death.

Revelation 11:11-12 But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them.

Truth wins…

Taurus, A Charging Bull… Phil Kulis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Creation, Phil Kulis, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars... with tags , , , on April 24, 2019 by paulthepoke

Taurus – His Glorious Coming Will Be Like a Charging Bull

Main star
– Al Deberan = the Governor

Orion, Coming forth as Light (Note Orion is a decan constellation)

Main stars
– Betelgeuse = The Coming of the Branch
– Rigel = The Foot that Crushes
– Bellatrix = Quickly Coming, Swiftly Destroying

Stellarium

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Revelation 19:11-16

Scorpio, the Scorpion… Phil Kulis

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Creation, Phil Kulis, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars... with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 27, 2019 by paulthepoke

Scorpio, the Scorpion. 
Main star = Antares “the wounding” at the head of the scorpion.

Stellarium

Genesis 3:15 “He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise His heel.”

A decan constellation Ophiuchus, the serpent holder is depicted as having his foot on the head or back of the scorpion.

The star Antares is the head of Scorpio and at the foot of Ophiuchus.

Stellarium

1 Samuel 17:54 Then David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his weapons in his tent.

A seed of the woman in the line of the Messiah (David) bruised the head of the seed of the serpent (Goliath). David then took Goliath’s head to Jerusalem.

John 19:17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

Jesus was crucified at Golgotha (GOLiath was from GATH) “the place of the skull” where His heel was bruised with a nail through the foot.

Purim 5779/2019

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Purim, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , on March 16, 2019 by paulthepoke

Esther 9:20-22 Then Mordecai recorded these events, and he sent letters to all the Jews who were in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, both near and far, obliging them to celebrate the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same month, annually, because on those days the Jews rid themselves of their enemies, and it was a month which was turned for them from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and rejoicing and sending portions of food to one another and gifts to the poor.

The setting of the story is in the book of Esther. The events of the story took place from 483-473 BC. The location is Susa of the Persian Empire. This would be modern day Iran.

Esther is a unique book in the Bible in that God’s name is not written or used. Even though God’s name is not seen, it is obvious Who is in control of the events of the narrative.

This is the decree for the celebration of the holiday Purim. The celebration is to take place in the Hebrew month of Adar on the 14th and 15th day. In the Gregorian year of 2019, that starts on Wednesday, March 20th and ends the next day on March 21st. Scripture tells us the holiday is to be celebrated every year.

See how God used a Jewish woman in the Persian Empire to save His people. For more information on the book of Esther and the holiday of Purim, click on the link below.

https://paulthepoke.com/category/purim/

This Purim (5779/2019) has a unique set of circumstances surrounding the holiday. Purim is to occur on a Supermoon. This is a full moon where the moon is the closest it can be to the Earth in its orbit around the Earth.

This Supermoon is also the last in a set of three consecutive Supermoons. The next time a set of three Supermoons will take place is later this fall 2019. The last of those Supermoons will be during the Fall Feasts and the new Hebrew year 5780.

This year, Purim occurs during the spring equinox.

On a Hebrew calendar, the year 5779 is a leap year as well. That means one additional month of Adar.

Jewish rabbis believe they are very, very, very close to the unveiling of their Messiah.

Rabbi Pinchas Winston had the following analogy, “The arrival of the Messiah has an aspect that is like musical chairs. No one knows when the music will stop, but when it does, you might unexpectedly be caught unprepared and be left standing without a place to sit down. It is absolutely correct today to be paranoid.”

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/123912/purim-supermoon-ushering-redemption/

As a believer in the Messiah Jesus Christ or Yeshua HaMashiach, I concur with Rabbi Winston’s comments on the coming of the Messiah. The Rabbi’s statement is in complete alignment with words of Jesus Himself, Peter, the Apostle Paul, and John.

Matthew 24:44 For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Revelation 16:15 Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.

BE READY!!!

Super Blood Wolf Moon, January 2019

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Teshuvah/Repent, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2019 by paulthepoke

Psalms 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.

A wolf moon is a full moon in January. This wolf moon will be in total eclipse or a blood moon. Hence the term, Super Blood Wolf Moon.

The lunar eclipse in 2019 will occur on January 20-21, 2019. In North America, the partial lunar eclipse will begin at  10:34 pm EST on January 20th and the total lunar eclipse will begin at 11:41 pm EST on January 20th. Totality will end at 12:43 am EST on January 21st, and the partial eclipse will end at 1:50 am on January 21st. The total lunar eclipse will also be viewable in western Europe and extreme northern Asia.

~

Joel 2:31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

Peter quotes the verse above in Acts 2:20.

The answer lies in the verse. Read carefully. Note the word “before”. Is the upcoming event a “sign”? If it is a sign, it is just that… a sign. A sign indicates something is coming. Nothing is going to happen other than an incredible celestial event.

This January 2019 total lunar eclipse will mark the end of a decade long series of lunar and solar eclipses. There have been a total of 40 heavenly events from 2010-2019. At the center of these events was the tetrad of lunar eclipses that occurred on Passover 2014, Tabernacles 2014, Passover 2015, and Tabernacles 2015.

Paul Grevas

To quote the observer of this phenomenon Paul Grevas, “This is the only tetrad in world history from 3000 BC to 2015 AD to display symmetrical perfection of exact days about midpoint with all 40 eclipses 2010-2019.”

Of interest, there are 40 heavenly signs with perfect symmetry. The number 40 is consistent with the Hebraic concept of Teshuvah. The English term we use is “repent”. The idea is to turn toward God. People are called to turn away from their sin, repent, and change course. It is a time of inward reflection and sincere self-assessment. The goal is a change in lifestyle away from sin to obedience in God’s word.

To be clear, I am not calling for the resurrection of the dead or the rapture. If you are looking for date setting and corresponding events, this is not your website. My money says the resurrection and rapture do not happen. That said, I welcome the prophecy with open arms. Come Lord Jesus!

IF… this is the last sign of a decade long process within a series of 40 signs, the message is simple. It is a warning. We are called to repent of our ways. Change your hearts and return to God. Believe in the cross work of Jesus. If not, judgment is coming.

Believe what you want, it’s your choice.

But don’t kid yourself. We are trending hard towards a date with destiny…

Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. -Jesus

Aquarius, The Man Carrying the Water… Featuring Phil Kulis

The constellation Aquarius, the man carrying the water.

The names of the main stars and the meaning of their names:

– Sadalmelik = the Record of the pouring out
– Sadalsuud = He who pours out
– Sheat = Who goes and returns

Aquarius

The prophecy of the water-man Aquarius in the Bible.

Luke 22:7-13
Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed. And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.” So they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare?” And He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house which he enters. Then you shall say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”‘ Then he will show you a large, furnished upper room; there make ready.” So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.

Following Aquarius we go into the house of the Master and have dinner with the Teacher.

Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah Declared, Tishri 1, 5779/September 2018

Posted in Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2018 by paulthepoke

It is official. The new moon has been sighted at 6:47 pm Jerusalem, Israel time. Rosh Hashanah declared! Well… maybe. The following is stated by Brother Mark Harris of http://whenisthenewmoon.com/

“Some of you may be keeping this New Moon as the 7th month based on the barley observation this year, and some may be keeping this as the 6th month based on the first New Moon sighted after the Spring began. May you all continue to be blessed as you walk in Obedience to the Creator, and search out the Truth in these matters!”

Time, time, time… sigh… of that day or hour no one knows…

Click on the link below for a brief explanation of keeping time on God’s calendar.

 

These people are located northeast of Jerusalem, Israel and they follow the ancient practice of Rosh Chodesh. Rosh Chodesh means “head of the month”. There are people who are trained witnesses to identify the new moon. When the moon goes dark, witnesses are looking for the tiny sliver to emerge. It is a tiny crescent that is noted briefly at sunset on the western horizon.

God operates on a lunar calendar. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. The new moon can be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown. Humanity’s time keeping system is different than God’s. It is easy to see how the concepts of time are different and not on the same page. God marks time from month to month on a lunar calendar. The issue is not a mathematical calculation. It is a legal matter of truthful verification as far as God is concerned.

Deuteronomy 19:15 A single witness shall not rise up against a man on account of any iniquity or any sin which he has committed; on the evidence of two or three witnesses a matter shall be confirmed.

Tishri 1 (Hebrew calendar) begins after sunset on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 (Gregorian calendar) and continues until sunset Wednesday, September 12. With the establishment of the new moon and month, the remainder of God’s Fall Appointments can be proclaimed and dated.

Secular Israel celebrates the new month of Tishri and calls it their new year, Rosh Hashanah. Israelis are celebrating the beginning of year 5779. Note, God calls Tishri the seventh month.

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets. See also Leviticus 23:23-25

God’s new year begins in the spring.

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

These are the main constellations of the Mazzaroth. Major stars and the meaning of the star’s names are completed within the constellation.

Virgo, The Seed of the Woman
– Spica = the Branch

Libra, The Required Price Paid
– Zuben alChemali = the price which is deficient
– Zuben alGenubi = the price which covers

Scorpio, The Mortal Conflict
– Antares = the wounding
Decan to Scorpio is Ophiuchus,
– Ras El Hagus = He who holds

Sagittarius, The Final Triumph
– Naim = the Gracious One

Capricorn, Life out of Death
– Al Gedi = Cut off
– Dabih = the Sacrifice slain

Aquarius, Blessing out of Victory
– Sadalmelik = the Record of the pouring out
– Sadalsuud = He who pours out
– Sheat = Who goes and returns

Pisces, Deliverance out of Bondage
– Okda = the United
– Alsamaca = the Upheld

Aries, The Sacrifice, Glory out of Humiliation

Taurus, His Glorious Coming
– Al Deberan = the Govenor

Orion, Coming forth as Light

(Note Orion is a decan constellation)

Gemini, His Rule on Earth

– Castor = Ruler, Judge

Cancer, His Possessions Held Secure

leo_black

Leo, His Enemies Destroyed

It’s interesting to note that Ophiuchus, the decan to Scorpio, is restraining the serpent with his heel on the scorpion. The star Antares meaning wounding is the foot of Ophiuchus and the head of Scorpio.

Also, Sagittarius the archer’s arrow is pointed at the heart of Scorpio.

Maybe meant to be part of the same since they share a major star and this prophecy.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise Him on the heel.
