                   Inauguration or Divination

                         OBAMA RE-ELECTED 11/6/2012   

                           Definition of the word inaugurate


 Latin inauguratus, past participle of inaugurare, literally, to practice augury, from in- + augurare to augur; from the rites connected with augury.

Augury - augury definition

au·gu·ry (ôgyo̵̅o̅ rē, -gyə-) noun

  1. divination from omens
  2. pl. auguries -·ries an omen; portent; indication

Etymology: ME augurie < L augurium, divination < augur, augur 

To understand the ancient meaning of this practice we need to take alook at the augurs of Ancient times.

See Link: A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, John Murray, London, 1875.  

From earliest times and in all places, divination has served as a recourse to those desiring a greater hand in, or forewarning of, their fate. This practice, and occult practices generally, operates from the changeless foundations of an ever-changing world, and remains vitally relevant through all times. Sudden disease, death, distress, desire, and desperation live on, exacting a heavy toll of life and spirit from every generation.  The Bible reminds us of the practice of divination and the power thereof.

Divination may be broadly described as either active or passive. The active form involves positive human action, as in geomancy, the poking or drawing of a consciously unknown number of dots or strokes (depending on whether it is performed with a stick in the earth, or pen on paper) to arrive at oracular figures..

The passive form is generally some type of omen. One observes natural phenomena such as the flight of birds, cloud formations, or the apparent paths of heavenly bodies (astrology) and interprets these events according to a traditionally received body of knowledge.

From the number and character of extant manuscripts, dating from the middle ages to modern times, it is clear that residents of the southern Arabian Peninsula have long shown a deep preoccupation with divination. Such manuscripts, as well as magical manuscripts generally, serve to pass on and preserve ancient written and oral traditions which have remained essentially unchanged since the days of the Greek and Demotic magical papyri, which in turn can be traced back to Assyrian and Babylonian texts. Magic is a conservative occupation, and change is not desired, but rather accurate transmission through time.

2 Kings 23:5  And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the Kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burn insence unto Baal, to the sun and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.

The word Baal in these high places in the Hebrew is BAMAH. See Ezekiel 20:29 - Thereof it is called Bamah unto this day

Inauguration Day reveals its astrological roots

In Astrology an example in the present as been observed by our Presidents since the founding of this Nation. For example observance in the stars and the planets by divination by the act of an Inaugural. 

Barack Obama 44th President - Birthday August 4th, 1961 -  Sign Leo 

 There’s an intriguing calculation amended into the U.S. Constitution that not only makes the modern presidency a distinctly Aquarian office but also stamps each successive administration with the astrological symbolism of a new beginning.  

It isn’t just that Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, “happens to” arrive when the sun is in Aquarius. It isn’t that sort of coincidence at all, because, you see, there are plenty of years when the magic hour of noon Eastern Time, Jan. 20, arrives while the sun is still in Capricorn. In fact, when the hour for the transition of power was first selected, it happened to fall in Capricorn three years out of every four – but only the fourth would be an inaugural year.

Since the 1933 ratification of the 20th Amendment, which set the official schedule, every regularly scheduled presidential inauguration in the four-year cycle has taken place under a sun shining down from the beginning of Aquarius, and that pattern continues forward. If there wasn’t an astrologer involved in selecting the date – which there certainly could have been – then we can chalk it up to one of those amusing synchronicities through which astrology has always worked, and continues to work.

Those who understand the knowledge of divination, knowing the power of it, have practice it to perfection. This long time ancient craft has been an effective tool for power and control.

The symbol of Aquarius is the water bearer – the man that carries water from the well. Water also has special quality of overcoming gravity; in water fountains and geysers that erupt from the ground.

Aquarius, D’li in Hebrew, is numerically 44, same as blood, Dam.

Divination and Eclipses = Omens

Ancient Chaldeans believed that the eclipse was a display of the Moons wrath, and that famine, disease or natural disasters would follow. Babylonians went so far as to try to determine which quadrant of the Moon was most eclipsed (very obvious in a partial lunar eclipse), using the direction as a geographical indicator of who would suffer the worst consequences. Eclipses were the ancient astrologer’s predictive tool.  http://www.geocities.com/astrologyomens/omenseclipses.htm

                                           Solar Eclipse 1/26/09            


The first solar eclipse of 2009 occurred on January 26th 2009. This eclipse is termed as annular eclipse as it forms a ring shape. The annular eclipse will be visible from a wide track that traverses the Indian Ocean and western Indonesia. A partial eclipse was seen within the much larger path of the Moon’s shadow, which includes the southern third of Africa, Madagascar, Australia except Tasmania, southeast India, Southeast Asia and Indonesia

This is the 50th eclipse of Saros 131. The Saros cycle is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 6585⅓ days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon.

The Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon was visible from Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and most of N.A. This is the 50th eclipse of Saros Cycle 133. The first eclipse of this group occurred on August 4, 1720.

On January 26th, 6 days after the 44th President took his oath an Solar ecliptic occurred. According to Nasa this solar eclipse is the first half of a pair of Aquarius-Leo eclipses, with the lunar eclipse coming on February 9. This eclipse is in Aquarius–specifically at 6 degrees 29 minutes Aquarius. Also notable is that the Sun is in Aquarius and the Moon is also a New Moon in Aquarius and they’re conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius. According to the Ancients astrologers a certain lineage could be seen in the heavens of Kings chosen as rulers over a Nation or Nations. In more ancient times the skies were interpreted on behalf of the collective with the king representing the destiny of the realm. The Ancient Egyptians believed that family lineage, proving bloodlines could be seen in the stages of the the new moons, and that the indication that the priest have divined one being born out of a egg shell will be the god king. The Sun-god had originated from an egg. To us this sounds like the Sperm of a male reproductive cells fertilizing an ovum or egg.

Interesting facts surround the phases of certain practices of divination. One in perticular is the Saros Cycle. 


Saros (Greek) [from Chaldean deity Sar] Sar's symbol was a circle, denoting a great cycle of time, as well as the number 3,600, the square of 60. The length of this cycle is not revealed, as we need to know the unit which is to be multiplied by 3,600. Just as the day is comprised in the year, so the year is comprised in the Great Saros. It is likely that the word applies to several different large cycles.

Also used now to denote the small cycle within which the luni-solar eclipses approximately recur: a period of 6585.32 days or 233 lunation’s.

In connection with the saros and the naros or neros, the key number of all these cycles is based on the duodenary system where the base number is 12. Thus, 5 times 12 is 60, itself an esoteric key number; and the square of 60 in 3,600. Again 60 plus 12 is 72, a key number of the highest esoteric import. Six hundred, commonly called the Chaldean naros or neros, is 50 times 12; and 50 and its double 100 are again highly important esoteric key figures. Thus 100 is the square of 10, a distinctly esoteric key number; 10 and 12 are intimately related in ancient chronological calculations.

The earliest discovered historical record of the Saros cycle is by the Chaldeans (ancient Babylonian astronomers) in the last several centuries BC, and was later known to Hipparchus, Pliny (Naturalis Historia II.10[56]) and Ptolemy (Almagest IV.2), but under different names. The name "saros" was first given to the eclipse cycle by Edmond Halley in 1691, who took it from the Suda, a Byzantine lexicon of the 11th century. Although Halley's naming error was pointed out by Guillaume Le Gentil in 1756, the name continues to be used.

The Saros cycle is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 6585⅓ days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon. One cycle after an eclipse, the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur west of the original location.

The Saros cycle of 18 years 11 days 8 hours is very useful for predicting the times at which nearly identical eclipses will occur, and is intimately related to three periodicities of the lunar orbit: the synodic month, the draconic month, and the anomalistic month. For an eclipse to occur, either the Moon must be located between the Earth and Sun (for a solar eclipse) or the Earth must be located between the Sun and Moon (for a lunar eclipse). This can happen only when the Moon is new or full, and repeat occurrences of these lunar phases are controlled by the Moon's synodic period, which is about 29.53 days. Most of the times during a full and new moon, however, the shadow of the Earth or Moon falls to the north or south of the other body. Thus, if an eclipse is to occur, the three bodies must also be nearly in a straight line. This condition occurs only when the Moon passes close to the ecliptic plane and is at one of its two nodes (the ascending or descending node). The period of time for two successive passes of the ecliptic plane at the same node is given by the draconic month, which is 27.21 days. Finally, if two eclipses are to have the same appearance and duration, then the distance between the Earth and Moon must be the same for both events. The time it takes the Moon to orbit the Earth once and return to the same distance is given by the anomalistic month, which has a period of 27.55 days. 

Origin of SAR 

The Sumerian/Babylonian word "SAR" was a unit of measure, and as a number appears to have had a value of 3600. From Egypt to the Hindus River, both ancient Greek and oriental Bible chronologists placed the Sar (3600 years) of 300-year Babylon as The Venus Tablet in Adam's year 3600 (either 1900/1600 BC) from the known Epochs 5500/5200 BC debating it as the start or end of Babylon. (Actual tablet is 1625 BC for an 1894-1594 BC Babylon.) Earlier yet, both Genesis and Ramses Papyrus Canon also show indications of reconstruction using 3600 new moons (291 Julian years less one week = 15,184 weeks for 3599 synodic months) for several significant years. The most notable being, the last year of the 12th dynasty (1991 BC) is 1786 BC (Parker, 206 of 213 years) measures this lunar Saros from the lunar year 2078 Jan 7 to Dec 25 (Christmas dates affiliated with Osiris perhaps O-Saros). The significance here could be with Haran who is affiliated with the city Harran and the city Ur, both of which had identical lunar observatories, ziggurats, temple plans. Genesis says Haran was born 291 years after the Flood. The earliest use of the Sar is then before the Flood where Babylon's high priest Berorsus (and sumerian texts) translate its 3600 days (10-year decade) as 3600 years so that king Alulim rules 28,800 years instead of days which total 80 years. This is comparable to Hindu who translate 432,000 as years instead of days so that it is 1200x 360 years rather than 1200x 360 days. It is because the Calendar Sar is regarded as The Leader, that it was said to be King. The Calendar or element of time will always be king over kings, and so king of kings were also called Sar. This connects the whole scenario story of why the sun, the moon, and rebirth as in eclipses. Two eclipses are known to have reborn or renewed kingship; 817 BC May 13 renewing Assur-Dan and Uzziah, and 763 BC June 15 renewing Jotham with Ahaz, and Pul as Tiglath-pileser.  See link:   Astronomical Observatories

 According to Luke 21:25,26 - And there shall be signs in the Sun, and in the Moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s heart failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven will be shaken. According to the Greek Concordance, the word signs in this verse of the Greek represents: semeion - meaning a MARK; to indicate-signify especially the supernatural :-miracle, sign, token, wonder; meaning the effects that are associated with the sun and the moon and the stars; like meteors falling, sunburst, eclipses and planets positioning themselves in the sun and moon in certain constellations, and planetary alignments. This also represents Mazzaroth - See Job 38:32 - Mazzaroth in the Hebrew meaning: MAZZARAH - from nasal - distil, drop flood, cause to flow, gush out, pour down running water as in the since of raining, a constellation , zodiacal sign, affecting the weather), planet.

                                        LUNAR ECLIPSE 2/9/09

Lunar Eclipse occurring 6:49 am PST February 9, 2009, at 21 degrees Leo-Aquarius.        

The Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon was visible from Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and most of N.A. This is the 50th eclipse of Saros Cycle 133. The first eclipse of this group occurred on August 4, 1720.


Begin time in GMT (or Z time): 12:36:08
Middle: 14:38:03
Moon leaves penumbra: 16:39:07




From the NASA Eclipse site:

An annular eclipse will be visible from a wide track that traverses the Indian Ocean and western Indonesia. A partial eclipse will be seen within the much larger path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes the southern third of Africa, Madagascar, Australia except Tasmania, southeast India, Southeast Asia and Indonesia. (Figure 1). 

The annular path begins in the S. Atlantic at 06:06 UT when the Moon's antumbral shadow meets Earth and forms a 363 kilometre wide corridor. Traveling eastward, the shadow quickly sweeps south of the African continent, missing it by approximately 900 kilometres. Slowly curving to the northeast the path crosses the southern Indian Ocean. Greatest eclipse[1] takes place at 07:58:39 UT when the eclipse magnitude[2] will reach 0.9282. At this instant, the annular duration is 7 minutes 54 seconds, the path width is 280 kilometres and the Sun is 73° above the flat horizon formed by the open ocean. The central track continues northeast where it finally encounters land in the form of the Cocos Islands and onward to southern Sumatra and western Java (Figure 2). At 09:40 UT, the central line duration is 6 minutes 18 seconds and the Sun's altitude at 25°. In its final minutes, the antumbral shadow cuts across central Borneo and clips the northwestern edge of Celebes before ending just short of Mindanao, Philippines at 09:52 UT. During a 3 hour 46 minute trajectory across our planet, the Moon's antumbra travels approximately 14,500 kilometres and covers 0.9% of Earth's surface area. Path coordinates and central line circumstances are presented in Table 1.

This is the 50th eclipse of Saros 131. The family began with an unusually long series of 22 partial eclipses starting on 1125 Aug 01. The first central eclipse was total in the Northern Hemisphere on 1522 Mar 27. It was followed by 5 more total eclipses before the series produce 5 hybrid eclipses from 1630 to 1702. The first annular eclipse of Saros 131 occurred on 1720 Aug 04. The series will produce 29 more annular eclipses the last of which is 2243 Jun 18. Saros 131 terminates on 2369 Sep 02 after a string of 7 partial eclipses.

Eclipse and Earthquakes: Scientist say there is no connection between the two, but lets just do a little reviewing our selves.

 A study of over 200 quakes reveals that earthquakes generally occur at the time of eclipses and the time of occurrences is generally midnight or morning.

 Do solar and lunar eclipses have a direct bearing on earthquakes and the Jewish calander?

The Jewish festivals and eclipses

Bible facts of the fifth month: the 1st day and the 10th day

1 Av, or the 1st day of fifth month of Jewish calander - Rosh Chodesh - July 22nd. Aaron died on this day. The King of Judah was taken captive and Jerusalem was burned and many were taken captive into Babylon on the 10th day of the fifth month. Ezra was given a letter from King Artaxerxes, concerning the law of God and the law of the king and went up to Jerusalem of the first day of the fifth month. And it was said that whosoever will not do the law, let judgement be executed speedily upon them. Judgements were death, or banishment, confiscation of goods, or imprisonment. Also another interesting fact is that on the self same day that Jerusalem went into captivity that date again is mentioned in Ezekiel 20:1 that certain elders of Israel came to Ezekiel to inquire of the Lord 10 day of the fifth month, and the Lord told Ezekiel to speak unto them and cause them to know their abominations, which was the high place called Bamah. Ezekiel 20:29

In ancient times, Rosh Chodesh was a significant festival day. At that time, the new months were determined by observation. Each month began when the first sliver of moon became visible after the dark of the moon. Observers would watch the sky at night for any sign of the moon. If they saw the moon, they would report their sightings to the Sanhedrin, which would interrogate them to make sure that they were not mistaken. Where in the sky did the moon appear? Which direction was it pointing? If two independent, reliable eyewitnesses confirmed that the new moon had appeared and described it consistently, the Sanhedrin would declare the new month and send out messengers to tell people when the month began.

List of Dates

Rosh Chodesh Av begins at sundown in the Diaspora on:


"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood" (Rev. 6:12).

This represents a great earthquake at the time of an eclipse.


In February of this year, Earth Changes Media made headlines providing evidence of a connection between a Full Lunar Eclipse and catastrophic events. We displayed well documented evidence showing large earth changing events did occur within a 14 day window prior to, and 14 days immediately following a Full Lunar Eclipse --- without exception.

Will a similar scenario occur as the result of the coming Full 'Solar' Eclipse?

Let's take a look at history and the scientific evidence of "cycles" and in this case as it relates to full lunar events. Below I will list the dates of 'Full Lunar Eclipse' from 2001 to 2008.

Here are the dates of 'full lunar eclipse' from 2001 to 2008

RESULTING FACTS: The following events occurred within two weeks prior and/or two weeks after the last seven listed Full Lunar Eclipse.

January 25 2001 - (India) A magnitude 7.6 earthquake shook the Indian Province of Gujarat. It was one of the two most deadly earthquakes to strike India in its recorded history. The death toll was 19,727, number of injured at 166,000, over 600,000 people were left homeless, with 348,000 houses destroyed and an additional 844,000 damaged.

May 2 2003 - (Turkey) At least 176 people have died and 521 people were injured after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake that shook the eastern Turkey's Bingol province. Several public buildings collapsed in the centre of Bingol city and its vicinity. The last official report concerning the consequences of the earthquake in the city indicates about 570 buildings were collapsed and about 6000 others were damaged.

May 21 2003 - (Algiers) A strong earthquake measuring 6.8 magnitude struck the coastal region east of Algiers and the Tell Atlas mountains of Algeria. 2,251 people died, another 1,200 missing, 10,243 were injured and 200,000 made homeless.

May 26 2003 - (Japan) A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit northern Japan, however, there were no casualties and very few people were injured due to the depth (about 44 miles underground) of the epicenter of the earthquake.

November 17 2003 - (Alaska) A 7.8 earthquake hits Aleutian Islands, Alaska; tsunami warning issued.

April 2004 - (United States) Yellowstone Super Volcano experienced over 400 quakes within three days. This type of increase in earthquake activity is called a "swarm". Parts of the caldera were closed to the public with areas of surface temperatures reaching over 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Some reports were telling of the sole of on-lookers shoes were melting just prior to the area's closing.

October 23 2004 - (Japan) A series of powerful earthquakes the strongest with a magnitude of 6.7 jolted northern Japan, killing at least 30 people and injuring more than 2000 people largely as the result of building collapse. The strongest earthquakes occurred during a period of several hours with the main epicenter located near Yamakoshi village, Niigata Prefecture. Thousands of landslides were triggered by the earthquakes and aftershocks with much associated damage to roads, agricultural fields, and residential.

March 3 2007 - (Sumatra) Two strong earthquakes shook the west coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra on Tuesday, killing at least 70 people, 460 serious injuries have been reported, spread across many towns and regencies in West Sumatra. Over 43,000 houses were damaged, with over 12,000 of those severely damaged.

August 15 2007 - (Peru) Large 8.0 earthquake hits Peru. Over 514 died, with 1,090 injured, and around 40,035 families rendered homeless. A further 30,542 families have been affected.

February 12th 2008 - (United States) A "swarm" of over 100 earthquakes hit Baja California, Mexico. Swarms also began off the Oregon Coast, Northern Calif., and Alaska. They are still occurring with no sign of letting up. 



                         A Red Blood Moon


On February 20th, 2008 a blood red moon or Total eclipse of the moon was seen over the dome of the rock in Jerusalem.

Joel 2:31 reads: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come and in Acts 2:20: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: Revelation 6:12: And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? 17.

Additionally,written in the Jewish Talmud you will further read "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is as red as blood it is a sign that a glittering sword is coming to the world." Which in the Hebrew is Barak.

Another Hebrew word is barach, also represents barak: To kneel, to bless God (as a act of adoration), AND THE VICE VERSA, (man), as a benefit, also by euphemism, to curse God or the King, as treason; altogether blaspheme, which represents the Hebrew bariach: A figitive as fleeing, as THE SERPENT, AND THE CONSTELLATION BY THAT NAME. According to The freemasons mason Bible, dated 1948 under question's and answer's. The Antiquity of Masonry is descended from the ancient Mysteries as written in the starry heavens. These were first arranged when the constellation Leo was set in Saturn. The ancients claim that Saturn was named after SAW-TAWN, which mean SATAN!

This eclipse just so happened to be in Leo and Saturn

As Christian we know that the Kingdom of God is not by observation of the Sun and the moon and the stars, but that the Kingdom of God is within us Christian's, though God has divided unto all nations, the sun and the moon, and all the Zodiac, (host of heaven). Men have served them as God as stated at the beginning of this page. As Jesus star was seen in the East by the three wise men upon his entrance into the world. Is it possible also that the man of sin will also have signs in the heaven which indicate his entrance into the world?

See link: The Freemason's claim to be the sons of light 

Many Bible prophecies refer to signs in the heavens. The sun, moon and stars are the actors. Jesus and many of the prophets spoke of the moon turning to blood, the sun being darkened, and stars falling, among various other forecasts.

Joel 2:31 - The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Acts 2:20 - The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

Rev 6:12 - And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sack-cloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Joel was speaking to Israel. He said that signs in the sky will foretell the great and terrible day of the Lord.

Since the Creation, God made the sun and the moon "for SIGNS and for seasons" (Gen 1:14).

"And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath..." (Acts 2:19).

Jesus personally taught that in addition to great earthquakes, famines, and pestilence, there would be "fearful sights and GREAT SIGNS shall there be from heaven."

"And there shall be signs in the SUN, and in the MOON, and in the STARS," (Luke 21:25).

Three Witnesses in One Year!

In 1996, there were two very significant moons over Jerusalem falling precisely on major feast-days of the Jewish calendar.

One "Sack-cloth" Moon (a dark eclipse, some said it was red) appeared on the Passover Sabbath, April 3, 1996, and one Blood-red Moon occurred on September 26, exactly on the eve of the Feast of Tabernacles.

On March 22, 1997, on the feast-day of Purim (Esther's feast), a 90% lunar eclipse occurred.

In the middle of the "Days of Teshuva" (Repentance), on September 16, 1997, another eclipse took place.

There were no further total lunar eclipses over Jerusalem until January 21, 2000!

What are the chances that FOUR such eclipses would occur over Jerusalem exactly on these significant FESTIVAL dates? Could this possibly be accidental, or are they SIGNS from GOD?

Considering the Jewish month Nisan is the first month of the year, according to Exodus 12, then the first three of these eclipses all occur within the space of just ONE BIBLICAL YEAR - April 1996 to March 1997 - following a scriptural pattern of establishing a fact by "two or three witnesses."

Why is the Moon Red?

When the EARTH passes between the SUN and a full MOON, blocking the sun's light, and causing a shadow on the moon, a lunar eclipse ccurs.

Often during a total lunar eclipse, the moon is not completely dark, but is faintly illuminated with a red light refracted by the earth's atmosphere which filters out the blue rays.

In modern times, a higher density of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere contributes to a spectacular RED moon.

Occasionally a lunar eclipse occurs when the earth is covered with a heavy cloud layer which prevents light refraction, making the surface of the moon completely dark (like sack-cloth).

The lunar eclipse of Sukkot in 1996 turned the moon blood-red. Color photographs of that moon are nothing short of shocking!

One Jerusalem resident commented of the Passover eclipse: "Did you see that beautiful 3-D Red Moon? It was awesome; the most beautiful sight I've ever seen in the sky..."

The prophet Joel's words are even more ominous however: "And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come" (Joel 2:30-31).

Amazingly, a solar eclipse occurred only fourteen days later!

Why on Feast Days?

Can there be any doubt that these signs are messages from God pointing to the significance of the respective FEAST-DAYS?

The three most important Jewish Feasts are Passover, Pentecost and the Feast of Tabernacles.

Significantly, Jesus was killed on the Passover nearly 2000 years ago. The details of His death match those of the Passover rituals (the slaying of the sacrificial lamb, etc.).

On the first Passover, the LORD smote EGYPT'S FIRSTBORN.

On Passover at Calvary, GOD'S FIRSTBORN was smitten.

Could it be that in an upcoming Passover, ISRAEL'S FIRSTBORN will die for their transgression in the tribulation (those who fail to flee Judea when Antichrist commits the Abomination of Desolation, as instructed by Jesus in Matthew 24:15)?

Is this a sign from God in the heavens?

Fifty days later, on the Feast Day of Pentecost (also known as the Feast of Weeks), the Holy Ghost was poured out upon His disciples for the first time, beginning the Church age.

The early church was "sealed" with the Holy Ghost. Is it possible that on an UPCOMING Pentecost, 144,000 Jews might be "sealed"?

Is this a sign from God in the heavens?

The third, the Feast of Tabernacles, celebrates the 'first fruits' of harvest.

It was actually during the Feast of Tabernacles that Solomon dedicated the Temple (2 Chronicles 5).

Is this a divine reminder that the THIRD TEMPLE COULD BE DEDICATED soon on an upcoming Feast of Tabernacles?

The Jewish Talmud Interprets the Signs

The Jewish Talmud (book of tradition) has interesting things to say about blood-red moons:

"When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel... If its face is as red as blood, [it is a sign that] the sword is coming to the world..."

Rabbi Meir said, "Whenever the luminaries are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished."

The sages in the Talmud understood that a red lunar eclipse means that God will be bringing judgment to His people, Israel.

On the very day of the "Erev Hag HaSuccoth" moon, September 26, 1996, violence broke out between the Palestinians and the Israelis, due to the opening of a tourist tunnel near the Dome on the Rock, after many months of comparative peace.

Violence erupted after the "Sack-cloth moon" on the Feast of Purim, March 23, with 4 killed, 140 injured.

These Signs are not Evil - "be not dismayed"!

Jeremiah the prophet wrote, "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them," (Jeremiah 12:2).

Make no mistake about it. This is not godless astrology, nor is it pagan superstition. The Bible reveals that God Himself often uses celestial events to speak to, prepare and warn His people of imminent earth-shaking events.

In Moses' day, the camps of the Israelites were to be pitched in relationship to the sun, and their Passover meal was to be eaten at the going down of the sun.

The sun and the moon stood still for Joshua over Gibeon, so they could finish a war.

Young Joseph's dream involved the sun, moon and stars.

Psalm 104:19 says, "He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down."

Isaiah 13:9-11 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the STARS of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the SUN shall be darkened in his going forth, and the MOON shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible."

"Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously" (Isaiah 24:23).

The Magi followed a wandering STAR to find the infant Jesus.

The ancient prophet Balaam prophesied "a STAR out of Jacob."

Herod himself inquired about the Christ child, because the kings of Persia said that they had seen his star in the east.
