By now you guys know. I cannot hide. I will not. I love the prophetic. I love all things end-times. I love the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I love signs and wonders (Mark 16:17,18). I love the Presence of The Lord (Psalm 16:11). I love Judaica (Genesis 12:3). I love the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12). I love the Spirit of Prophecy (Revelation 19:10) . I love the outpouring of His Presence (Joel 2:28, 29). I love revival (2 Chronicles 7:14). I love Him. I love Him. What an awesome God. Awesome.
Here we are, only a few days before the third Blood Moon in this current tetrad season (2014-2015). Passover begins Friday at sundown, and by the time the sun rises on Saturday the 4th, the third Blood Moon will have taken place. We, in Texas, are in line to see the full lunar eclipse — and it will be completely full for only a few minutes. The total lunar eclipse begins at 6:58 and ends at 7:03am. (http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-april-4). Praise our Father of Lights who made the lights of the sky for signs, for appointed times, for wonders (Genesis 1:14-19)!
So… let’s see. If the tetrad lunar eclipses on Feast Days of The Lord are a sign to Israel, you just might have to live actually on the moon to miss all the drama in Israel right now. Know that in each of the previous Feast Day tetrads, Israel went through a particularly difficult time, and then was rewarded handsomely. Hmmm. Which absolutely lines up with God’s Justice. The enemy always overplays his hand, which in turn gives God just cause to pour out blessing after blessing after blessing. Can I get an amen?
Just a few of the recent events related to The Land are listed here:
+ Iranian journalist defects to the West during nuke talks
+ USA leadership ‘divorcing’ Israel
+ USA agrees to Iran’s demands to not allow nuclear facilities inspections
+ USA bullies other P5 nations
These are all grave articles, grave headlines. Father, mercy and strength for Your People. In Zechariah 14:1-2, the Lord God warns that “a day is coming” when “I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle” and “then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations.” If you don’t have time to read Joel Rosenberg’s article linked above, he does quote a sober statement: “As noted at the NRB Convention, “the Bible teaches us that all nations will turn against Israel in the last days — and all nations will face judgment for it — but woe into us if it happens on our watch.” Did you notice the speaker said ‘into.’ Not ‘unto.’ ‘Into.’
Please don’t stop praying for Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I find it very curious that our nation is up in arms about Religious Freedom laws during this tense time. Think it might be a diversion from the enemy? Diverting our attention away from blessing and praying for Israel? Press through in prayer. And remember that “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” (Proverbs 29:2) We, all of us, right and left, are languishing.
Now, I know — this is not your typical jovial Easter email, reminding you all of bunnies and eggs (pagan sex symbols, by the way) and Jesus. But I did want to leave you with a couple of things. This first one is hilarious. It’s a link to a few parody videos for Passover. If you want a good laugh, click here: http://www.timesofisrael.com/parody-videos-put-passover-twist-on-pop/
The second is a bit more sincere. If you want to lift your hands high to the King of Kings, The Lord of Lords, click here: http://dreamsandmysteries.com/videos/james-borey-the-grave-is-left-satisfied/
And join me in humble amazement as we worship The One Who Has Overcome. His Name is Above All Names. All Authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him. He descended into the grave and proclaimed victory – the gospel – to those held captive. And led them out in mighty procession. He is Worthy. The Lamb. The Lion of Judah. The King. And He is coming back!
