Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets Declared, 5782/2021… BTW, Quakes in Various Places, Acapulco, Mexico

The new moon has been sighted in the evening of September 8th, 2021. At least we can agree it is officially a new month. What cannot be agreed upon is whether or not it is Rosh Hashanah aka Yom Teruah aka Feast of Trumpets.

The Temple Institute and secular Jews have recognized Rosh Hashanah on September 6th based on their calculations. The modern state of Israel declares this to be their civil New Year and the beginning of their seventh month, Tishri 1.

Brother Mark Harris from http://whenisthenewmoon.com/ have a different understanding. They have proclaimed the new moon to be the sixth month of Elul.

Not that this makes it truth or accuracy, but consensus Judaism has Rosh Hashanah starting September 6th, 2021 on a western Gregorian calendar. Remember, the Gregorian calendar is solar based.

The Hebrew calendar is lunar based. 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.

But God says this regarding His Feast, Yom Teruah…

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 declares the new year to take place 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…”

Revelation 8:8-9 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Puerto Escondido, Mexico: The Laguna de Manialtepec has turned pink or red over night.

https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/oaxaca-lagoon-turns-pink-but-not-thought-to-be-toxic-biologist/

Biologist Alejandra Torres Ariño, Universidad del Mar has stated the abrupt change in color is likely due to recent heavy rains and an increase in salinity or fertilizer runoff.

Ariño indicated this not likely harmful to humans but is harmful to the ecosystem.

“At first glance, it doesn’t seem toxic, but we need to make sure,” Alejandra Torres Ariño.

This is the second time since 2016 a lagoon has turned red in Mexico.

https://paulthepoke.com/2016/04/14/trend-update-blood-red-lagoonmexico-april-2014/

Relax, this is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8. We are not in the Tribulation. A massive asteroid did not strike an ocean. A third of sea life was not destroyed. This is a lagoon off the Pacific coast of Mexico. A third of the sea has not been affected. When Revelation 8 happens, it will dominate the news cycle globally.

Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves… -Jesus

Isaiah 51:15 I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD of hosts is his name.

Pray for people around the world impacted by natural disasters.

The planet is currently experiencing a rough patch. Some have referenced the creation groaning. Others have called these events birth pains.

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.

Hurricanes Sept 17 NOAA

The state of Florida is on the verge of taking a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. The storm is one of the largest and one of the most destructive hurricanes in the Atlantic basin in recorded history. At times, winds have been reported up to 215 mph. Islands experiencing the storm have been devastated.

The Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana are recovering from the flooding rains and winds of Hurricane Harvey. Up to 41 million people in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal are suffering from historic flooding in southeast Asia. Flooding and mudslides have occurred in Africa’s Sierra Leone.

2 Peter 3:7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

The scope of Peter’s verse is the heavens and earth. Fire plays a significant role in the end times scenario.

The situation in the western half of the United States is an ignored tragedy. I am not suggesting these wild fires are the judgment of God.

76 forest fires are noted in 9 western states. Approximately 1.4 million acres of land are burning. The smoke can be viewed by satellites from space. Smoke can be observed from space from the west coast to the east coast of the United States.

Know at some point in the future, judgment is coming to the planet in the form of fire.

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes…

September 8, 2017: A magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Mexico. Multiple aftershocks of 5.0 have been registered. As of this date, 61 are reported dead. Nearly 2 million homes have lost power. Tsunami warnings were issued. Waves as high as 3 feet were reported. Hurricane Katia in the western Gulf of Mexico will only complicate the matter.

A swarm of over 200 quakes has been reported on the southwest edge of Yellowstone in Soda Springs, Idaho. Over 2,300 tremors have been reported in the Yellowstone caldera since the beginning of June 2017.

Is this the time Jesus referenced? Did He really mean what He said? Jesus also spoke of a better day. Good news is coming.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

The focus is on the word “redemption”. It is the Greek word ἀπολύτρωσις/apolutrósis. Strong’s Concordance defines as: release effected by payment of ransom; redemption, deliverance.

HELPS word studies states the following: literally, “buying back from, re-purchasing (winning back) what was previously forfeited (lost).”

The believer’s glorification is coming. We will be transformed and born again.

1 Corinthians 15:49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

Trend Update: Blood Red Lagoon/Mexico, April 2016

Posted in Blood Red Water/Aquatic Death, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on April 14, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

This verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale are all of the rivers and springs. The event in Mexico (March 2016) is not the fulfillment of Revelation 16:4. As of April 2016, we are not in the Tribulation. There is no Jewish Temple, no peace treaty, no 10 nation federation, and no antichrist. Let’s just get that out of the way.

The Greek word for blood is haima. It literally means blood or figuratively it means the color of blood. This definition is validated in multiple Greek lexicons.

Why will this event happen? It is a judgment. Revelation 16:6 …for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it.” There will be those who will kill Christians during this future period. There are people killing others now and does not have to do with belief. God will give you what you want.

As of March 2016, a lagoon in Mexico has turned red. This lagoon is located in Huatalco, Mexico. This is in southern Mexico on the Pacific Ocean not too far from Guatemala. Scientists believe the event is a result of a red tide, an algae bloom. Increased algae changes color. The ‘La Salina’ lagoon is an environmental mess. The sewage plant frequently does not operate correctly. These events usually result in wildlife death. It appears humanity is the cause of this particular event.

Just because something can be naturally explained does not mean the event did not happen.

A preview of things to come…
