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

Revelation 12 Sign: Kepler’s Math & Software, August 2017

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2017 by paulthepoke

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.

Pockets of the Christian community are buzzing about this verse. This fall on the Feast of Trumpets also known as Yom Teruah, this configuration of heavenly bodies will form in the sky. Many think that because this “sign” is appearing on and around the Feast of Trumpets, this points to the rapture on or near September 23, 2017.

The Greek word for “sign” is σημεῖον/sémeion. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: a sign, miracle, indication, mark, token.

HELPS Word Studies defines the term as following: a sign (typically miraculous), given especially to confirm, corroborate or authenticate; emphasizes the end-purpose which exalts the one giving it.

So the question becomes, does the “sign” indicate we have arrived at the destination of rapture of the church? Or does the “sign” indicate the event is approaching? When we are driving down the interstate, a sign says “St. Louis 250 miles”. There is also a sign that declares we have arrived in St. Louis. So where are we? Are we approaching rapture? Or is the rapture this Feast of Trumpets, September 23, 2017?

It is not the intent of the author to defend or articulate the position of those with this point of view. They can speak for themselves. It is my intent to give some points of consideration.

 

Statistical data regarding uniqueness of the event is unquestionable. Thanks to math of Johannes Kepler and his laws of planetary motion and physics, we are able to calculate the movement of heavenly bodies. The equations and calculations are run on computer software. The heavens are a finely tuned clock which can be run forward and backward.

The sign appears to be a once in 7,000 year event. If one subscribes to a literal seven day creation as stated in the Bible, the earth and universe are about 6,000 years old. This “sign” is a once in a creation event. It is a statistically rare astronomical event intentioned to get our attention. I am not getting in the way of that math assuming it is correct.

As human beings, we need to keep ourselves in check. We are fallen in our current state of humanity. We make mistakes. Rigid, inflexible dogmatic positions will lead to brokenness. And we do not possess the mind of God.

Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. -The Lord God

 

Many of the folks supporting the Rapture Fall 2017 position utilize the internet program Stellarium.

But there are questions. Does the Stellarium software (or any other for that matter) take into account Joshua’s long day? How long was Joshua’s long day? Software can only apply what it knows in the present. There needs to be a known, accurate point of comparison in the past to confirm the math in the present.

Joshua 10:12-13 At that time Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD gave the Amorites over to the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand still at Gibeon, and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day.

Kepler himself misapplied his math when looking for the Star of Bethlehem. He was off by about a year or two. My point is one or two years matters. To quote Einstein, “God does not play dice.” He is not loose or sloppy with His timing. God invented math.

This is the first in a series of posts regarding the Revelation 12 Sign.
