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…”

see also Numbers 29:1

Yom Teruah is the beginning of the civil new year. This is the Hebrew month of Tishri. It is the Hebrew year 5779.

The date for the first Fall Appointment is near Sunday, September 9 or Monday, September 10, 2018 (traditional Gregorian calendar). This date is confirmed pending the sighting of the new moon. The new year begins when the new moon is confirmed by two witnesses.

The shofar is blown 100 times on the Feast of Trumpets.  There are three different sounds (Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah). Each is blown three times for a total of 9 blasts. This pattern is completed 11 times for a total of 99 blasts. The last blast is set aside. It is the longest and loudest. It is known as the “Last Trump”. References provided by (El Shaddai Ministries).

This holiday has many different names. Some of the names are listed below. Jewish tradition has Rosh Hashanah as the birthday of the world and the head of years.

It is known as the “Coronation of Messiah”. Traditionally, kings of Israel have been appointed on Yom Teruah. King David was coronated on this new moon holiday. Israel’s Messiah comes from the lineage of King David.

Psalm 47 O clap your hands, all peoples; shout to God with the voice of joy. For the Lord Most High is to be feared, a great King over all the earth. He subdues peoples under us and nations under our feet. He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob whom He loves. Selah.

God has ascended with a shout, the Lord, with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a skillful psalm. God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne. The princes of the people have assembled themselves as the people of the God of Abraham, for the shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted.

It is known as the “Hidden Day”. Psalm 27:5 For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.

Zephaniah 2:3 Seek the LORD, All you humble of the earth who have carried out His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden in the day of the LORD’S anger.

It is known as the “Wedding of the Messiah”.  Joel 2:15-16 Blow a trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly, gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room and the bride out of her bridal chamber.

Trend Update: God’s Fall Appointments, 5779/2018

Posted in Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2018 by paulthepoke

God’s fall appointments are the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles. Below is a brief 10 minute video that provides a framework for God’s fall appointed holidays. http://www.theseasonofreturn.com

 

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.

The first fall holiday has many names. It is called the Feast of Trumpets by Christians. It is recognized as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. Some refer to it as the “Hidden Day” or the “Wedding of the Messiah”. In Judaism, it is called Yom Teruah which means the “Day of Blowing”.

It is the beginning of the civil new year. This is the Hebrew month of Tishri. It is the Hebrew year 5779.

The date for Yom Teruah is near Sunday, September 9 or Monday, September 10, 2018 (traditional Gregorian calendar). This date is confirmed pending the sighting of the new moon. The new year begins when the new moon is confirmed by two witnesses. The confirmation of the new moon will ultimately determine the dates of the subsequent fall appointments.

https://paulthepoke.com/2014/09/28/yom-teruahrosh-hashanahfeast-of-trumpets-part-3/

The second fall holiday is the Day of Atonement. See Leviticus 16. Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement is celebrated on Tishri 10th. It is the last day of the 40 day period of Teshuvah or repent in the Hebrew. This holiday is viewed at the holiest day of Judaism. The day is a Sabbath day of rest. Yom Kippur is the only day a fast is required. The day begins at sun down. This is the busiest day of the year for the high priest with multiple animal sacrifices. The beginning for the Day of Atonement in 2018 is Tuesday, September 18 or Wednesday, September 19 at sun down. This date is ultimately determined by the confirmation of the new moon.

https://paulthepoke.com/2014/09/21/yom-kippurday-of-atonement/

Leviticus 23:33-36 Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘On the fifteenth of this seventh month is the Feast of Booths for seven days to the LORD. On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work of any kind. For seven days you shall present an offering by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation and present an offering by fire to the LORD; it is an assembly. You shall do no laborious work.’”

The third and last fall holiday on God’s calendar is Tabernacles. It is also called Sukkot, the Feast of Booths, the Festival of Tents, or the Feast of the Harvest because it was after the harvest in the fall. Simply put, it was also called “the feast” or “the festival”. This festival is a week-long festival from Tishri 15 to 21 on a Hebrew calendar. On our western Gregorian calendar, in 2018, the Feast of Tabernacles will be observed from Sunday, September 23 or Monday, September 24,  again pending the new moon confirmed at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Tishri.

https://paulthepoke.com/2014/06/09/isaiah-12-jesus-and-the-water-of-life/

There are seven God appointed holidays communicated through the Old Testament Law. The first four were fulfilled to the day by Jesus Himself with His death, burial, resurrection, and the giving of the Holy Spirit. If the first four spring holidays were fulfilled on the God appointed holiday, why would the fall holidays be any different?

Trend Update: Israel Strikes Damascus Airport, September 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2017 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 17:1 The oracle concerning Damascus. “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin.

Damascus is the oldest continually inhabited city on the planet. Residents have occupied Damascus for over 5,000 years. The original Hebrew grammar states it is going to be taken away and removed. One could state it will be a ruined ruin or a ruined heap!

Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets, September 21, 2017: Breaking story out of Damascus, Syria

According to multiple Syrian news sources, Israel has targeted the Damascus Airport located less than 10 miles southwest of downtown Damascus. Local news sources and tweets are indicating Israel launched their munitions outside of Syrian air space. Multiple explosions are reported at the airport. Two to four strikes are possible. The events took place around midnight local time.

Damascus Now is reporting Syrian forces have launched two ground to air missiles. One missile was reported to be in the direction of the border. An Israeli drone was reportedly shot down by a Syrian missile. The link below is video released on Twitter of the drone being allegedly shot down.

September 23rd 2017: NOT the END, BEST BREAKDOWN (North Korea, America, Israel, Prophecy)…Featuring Trey Smith

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2017 by paulthepoke

Trey Smith breaks down September 23, 2017…

A shout of thanks to Trey Smith for the kind words and comments.

September 23rd 2017 (often called “Revelation 12 sign”) is NOT “the END” nor is it the “RAPTURE”. North Korea / Kim Jung Un in prophecy with Revelation 12. This video is likely the BEST FULL BREAKDOWN of what ALL the prophecy means (including North Korea, America, and Israel tied into the prophecy).

September 23rd 2017 is NOT the RAPTURE.

September 23rd 2017 is NOT the END.

North Korea and Kim Jung Un specifically mentioned within same tape of Kim Clement prophecy about the (or what is called) “Revelation 12 sign”. North Korea and Kim Jung Un are referenced as issues arising following what Kim Clement describes as a time when people are focused on a GREAT SIGN (like the Revelation 12 sign). Kim Clement also gives hopeful news in prophecy about the issues with North Korea and Kim Jung Un in his (Clement’s) prophecy.

Revelation 12: This video — from start to finish — is probably Trey Smith’s most powerful presentation on Signs in the Heavens, What those mean, and where we are prophetically in terms of “End Times”.

Revelation 12 Sign: A Kim Clement tape from 2009 has been discovered where Kim Clement goes over what appears to be the Revelation 12 Sign.

Revelation 12 Sign: What happens on September 23rd 2017?

Revelation 12 Sign: This video containing prophecy by Kim Clement, commentary by Trey Smith (on the Rapture and Revelation 12 sign) takes the position that the rapture does NOT occur on September 23rd 2017.

However, this video does take the position that Scottie Clarke did discover a sign (Great Sign, or Revelation 12 Sign) which is of Biblical and prophetic significance.

Prophecy by Kim Clement is shared in this video which appears to lend credibility to the “Revelation 12 sign”; but, predicts revivals and prosper for America while entering the “End Times” (a term which could be applied to a relatively vast time-period).

Revelation 12: The main message of this video is repentance. That America and Christians around the globe need to come back to the Lord (Jesus Christ) and repent for their nation. The video is a call to repentance.

Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah/Feast of Trumpets, 5778/2017

Posted in Fall Feasts, Gospel, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2017 by paulthepoke

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.

Many believers are pointing to this Feast of Trumpets with great anticipation. Many believe the rapture will take place this fall 2017, September 23rd to be specific. The foundation of the theory is the Virgo alignment in the heavenlies which is consistent with Revelation 12:1. Present company is not included in this thought.

Revelation 12:1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

Let’s cross the time and cultural divide from our place in the 21st century in western society. We are going back at least 2,000 years and upwards of 3,600 years ago. The Biblical text was written in an agrarian Middle East society. There are three languages involved: English, Greek, and Hebrew.

Judaism recognizes three trumps: first trump, the last trump, and the great trump. Each one of these named trumps represents a specific day. The “first trump” is blown on the Feast of Pentecost (Exodus 19:19). The “great trump” is blown on Yom Kippur and signals the return of Christ to Earth (Matthew 24:31). The “last trump” is synonymous with Yom Teruah or Rosh Hashanah (1 Corinthians 15:52). Resources: Festivals of the Jewish Year, Theodore Gaster; The High Holy Days, Herman Kieval.

newmoonThe Feast of Trumpets/Yom Teruah is the only new moon observance. This is not some Old Testament warm and fuzzy tradition. God has a point and a reason. He has not forgotten. The Apostle Paul makes note of this holiday.

Colossians 2:16-17 Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day— things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Christ.

God has singled out this appointed holiday for some big time fireworks! Judaism has been rehearsing this holiday for at least 3,600 years since Moses. Has the Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 15:52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed) connected the dots… (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.)

Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit fulfilled the spring feasts (all four of them to the day, hour, and minute…case closed). Resurrection and rapture on the Feast of Trumpets during the fall appointments??? The ultimate question is the year.

Crown of Thorns and Nails on Cross

Has Jesus Christ covered your sin? If no, you have bigger problems than when He is coming back for His church.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

Regardless of the day on the calendar…Be Ready for His return.

Regardless of what is or is not taking place in the sun, moon, and stars…Be ready for His return.

Live your life as if He would come tomorrow…Be ready for His return.

Jesus calls believers to be alert and watchful. Proclaim the redeeming power of Jesus.

 

And we wait for Him to fulfill the fall feasts…
