This week, we will be showing you the meaning of the Blood Moons and the Sword which are coming soon to Israel, (the USA, and the UK and her dominion). We do this, keeping in mind that the Jubilee cycle shows us when these things are to happen.
Let’s look at this rare celestial event from the point of view of the Jubilee and the Sabbatical years to see if we can glean something out of it.
The fact that they are a specific message from Yehovah can be learned from the Torah:
Genesis 1:14-15 And Yehovah said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
We know that these eclipse are related to our behavior from the oral Torah:
“Our Rabbis taught, when the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by the moon and idolaters by the sun.”
“if in the west, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the west; if in the midst of heaven it is bad omen for the whole world.”
“If its face is red as blood, [it is a sign that] the sword is coming to the world; if it is like sack-cloth, the arrows of famine are coming to the world”
“if it resembles both, the sword and the arrows of famine are coming to the world.”
“If the eclipse is at sunset calamity will tarry in its coming”
“if at dawn, it hastens on its way: but some say the order is to be reversed.”
Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the nations are dismayed at them, the idolaters will be dismayed, but Israel will not be dismayed!
Josephus tells of a lunar eclipse after Herod kills Matthias. It was an omen of his impending death. Antiquity of the Jews XVII Chapter 4:
Isaiah 50:1-3 1 Thus says the Lord: “Where is the certificate of your mother’s divorce, Whom I have put away? Or which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you? For your iniquities you have sold yourselves, And for your transgressions your mother has been put away. 2 Why, when I came, was there no man? Why, when I called, was there none to answer? Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? Indeed with My rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness; Their fish stink because there is no water, And die of thirst. 3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, And I make sackcloth their covering.”
Brethren, do you not see what is going on? Have we not been showing you the Sabbatical cycle and the order of the curses? First comes Terror, followed by Drought and it includes Famines. Then the Famines are followed by epidemics and then a Sword, which is what we have been explaining these past two weeks.
The Redemption spoken of in Isaiah is that which takes place at the end of the Jubilee; when all things are redeemed by Yahshua. Isaiah goes on to say that it is Yehovah’s rebuke that dries up the rivers; in other words, a Drought. Where it says the “heavens are blackness” are lunar and solar eclipses.
Joel 3:1 “For behold, in those days and at that time, When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. 3 They have cast lots for My people, Have given a boy as payment for a harlot, And sold a girl for wine, that they may drink. 15 The sun and moon will grow dark, And the stars will diminish their brightness.
Before Yehovah can bring us back from captivity WE MUST FIRST GO INTO CAPTIVITY!
This means we must go to war and loose that war.
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. 29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. 32 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.”
The “Moon turned to Blood” occurs before the great and awesome day of Yehovah (YHVH), but we are not told exactly how far before that day it occurs.
Joel 2:1 “Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the Lord is coming, For it is at hand: 2 A day of darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains. A people come, great and strong, The like of whom has never been; Nor will there ever be any such after them, Even for many successive generations. 3 A fire devours before them, And behind them a flame burns; The land is like the Garden of Eden before them, And behind them a desolate wilderness; Surely nothing shall escape them. 4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like swift steeds, so they run. 5 With a noise like chariots Over mountaintops they leap, Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, Like a strong people set in battle array. 6 Before them the people writhe in pain; All faces are drained of color. 7 They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like men of war; Every one marches in formation, And they do not break ranks. 8 They do not push one another; Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, They are not cut down. 9 They run to and fro in the city, They run on the wall; They climb into the houses, They enter at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth quakes before them, The heavens tremble; The sun and moon grow dark, And the stars diminish their brightness. 11 The Lord gives voice before His army, For His camp is very great; For strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; Who can endure it? 12 “Now, therefore,” says the Lord, “Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” 13 So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm. 14 Who knows if He will turn and relent, And leave a blessing behind Him– A grain offering and a drink offering For the Lord your God? 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; 16 Gather the people, Sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and nursing babes; Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, And the bride from her dressing room. 17 Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Lord, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’ 18 Then the Lord will be zealous for His land, and pity His people.”
He will pity his people if they repent as the Priests are told to do.
But read what Yehovah will do in Psalm 89:30 “If his sons forsake My law And do not walk in My judgments, 31 If they break My statutes And do not keep My commandments, 32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.”
Isaiah 10:1 “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, Who write misfortune, Which they have prescribed 2 To rob the needy of justice, And to take what is right from the poor of My people, That widows may be their prey, And that they may rob the fatherless. 3 What will you do in the day of punishment, And in the desolation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you leave your glory? 4 Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners, And they shall fall among the slain.” For all this His anger is not turned away, But His hand is stretched out still. 5 Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hand is My indignation. 6 I will send him against an ungodly nation, And against the people of My wrath I will give him charge, To seize the spoil, to take the prey, And to tread them down like the mire of the streets.”
It is Assyria that is the ROD with which Yehovah shall chastise Israel- the ungodly nation, the people of His wrath. The USA and the UK. Assyria shall invade and destroy all of this land.
Ezekiel 20:33-44 “As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out, I will rule over you. 34 I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out. 35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face. 36 Just as I pleaded My case with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will plead My case with you,” says the Lord God. 37 “I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant; 38 I will purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the country where they dwell, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”
After all is said and done, only a remnant shall remain. A mere 10% will survive Yehovah’s Rod via Assyria.
Leviticus 27:32 “And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the Lord.”
These blood moons and eclipses are a sign for us to repent while we can; before the rod is used on us- to correct us. They are a warning of impending doom. A very bad omen.
Ezekiel 22:23-31 “And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 24 “Son of man, say to her: ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ 25 The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst. 26 Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord had not spoken. 29 The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger. 30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. 31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord God.”
Our pastors, priests and prophets have lied to us! They have been hiding the truths of the Sabbath as well as the Holy Days and the Sabbatical and Jubilee years from our understanding. It is time to repent of this now. You no longer have the luxury to hide your head in the sand. Time is UP!
We have shown you in a previous study the first curse of Lev 26:14 “But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, 15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, 16 I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.”
He is going to send Terror.
But know that the Rod He uses in His wrath is Assyria and we have shown that Assyria is Germany. Just as it was in the days of Nimrod, Assyria was also known as Terror. The Chatti and the Hittites and Hess mean Terror. We have other lessons at SightedMoon.Com that explain this. Some of these lessons are on this Blog, but far from all of them.
When Yehovah says He is going to send Terror who else could He mean?
Leviticus 26: 23 ‘And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me, 24 then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant; when you are gathered together within your cities I will send pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied.”
If we are not reformed by the first curse of Terror, or the second curse of Drought and Famine and the third curse of Pestilence, then Yehovah is going to send the fourth curse: A Sword.
When we retreat into the cities we will have pestilences. From there we are taken into captivity. We are going to be so short on food that we will not be satisfied with the meager rations we do get.
In his book The Star of Bethlehem, the Star that Changed the World, E. L. Martin shows us how the planets announced the coming of the Messiah. We have teachings on this.
We have also shown you how astronomy has shown us when the Messiah was born in the article entitled: Conjunction or Sighted Which? That teaching is on this Blog site.
Luke 21:7 So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?” 8 And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. 9 But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.” 10 Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven. 12 But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake.”
The movement of the planets can give us some indication of things that are happening. Are the blood moons of 2014 and 2015 the announcement of the return of Yehshua? No. But they are a warning of a sword that is about to come on the USA and UK.
Much of what I am showing you here in this week’s lesson, I was not allowed to say on the DVD. Many groups and many people believe that the USA is Babylon. They believe that Babylon is going to fall as the Scriptures say. In believing this, they think the USA is about to fall and they are right, the USA is about to fall. But the USA is NOT Babylon. These people and these teachers are deceived by Satan. They think that Israel: The USA, Great Britain and her colonies, and the State of Israel are Babylon. But they are not Babylon. Babylon is the European nations and they will form a league with the Arabs for a short time.
When the USA and UK fall, they will do so at the hands of the EU. Many in the Messianic Community will believe this to be an act of Yehshua. When Satan moves down to Jerusalem, these same people will think he is the Messiah. And they will worship him as such and be deceived by Satan.
If it were possible, even the elect would be deceived.
I hope you are able to see this. And if not, let us direct you to more teachings on this subject. Please contact us through comments on this post OR use the CONTACT form located on this Blog.
One last thing, in each of the lessons about the curses, I was able to show that history supports my position. Now take a look at this:
When we check things with history we can learn a lot. We have already learned that the year:
749 BC was the first year in this Jubilee Cycle. 701 BC was the 49th year. The first year (749 BC) is also the Jubilee year, or 50th year, for the prior cycle.
Let’s do some math. Each Sabbatical cycle is seven years in length and we begin with 749 BC.
749 BC – 743 BC This when the first curse of Terror is applied.
742 BC – 736 BC This is when the second curse of Drought is applied.
735 BC – 729 BC This is when the third curse of Pestilence is applied.
728 BC – 722 BC This is when the fourth curse of the sword is applied.
Guess what happened in 723 BC? Yes, Israel was finally defeated after a three year siege by Assyria and led away. It is the year 723 that renown Chronologist Edwin R. Thiele and others have determined to be the year that Samaria fell. So what? Does Yehovah apply His punishment in a haphazard manner or is He consistent in the way He punishes His people?
Malachi 3:6 For I am Jehovah, I change not. Because of this you sons of Jacob are not destroyed.
Hebrews 13:8 Heb 13:8 יהושע Messiah is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (TS2009 – The Scriptures)
Will His punishment change; or the order of the sequence in which it is administered change?
ARE WE ABOUT TO REPEAT THIS EVENT IN OUR TIME?
Something to think about, isn’t it? The Jubilee is important to Yehovah. Is it important to you yet?
One other thing to ponder in your studies: I am not sure if this is prophetic or not. In Genesis 37:26 Judah sells Joseph to the Ishmaelites for 20 shekels of silver.
Then 2 Kings 16:7 tells us how Ahaz king of Judah sent to Assyria for help in fighting off the Northern Kingdom of Israel. This would eventually lead to the total destruction of Israel by the Assyrians.
We already know from the news that Judah, the state of Israel, has gone to the EU for help.
What will be the end of this? Time will tell.
Prepare for the coming Famine. And prepare for the coming Pestilence. But how are you going to prepare for the coming War in your very own front yard?
We read in Ezekiel 14:12 “The word of the Lord came again to me, saying: 13 “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. 14 Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God. 15 “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts, 16 even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate. 17 “Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land,’ and I cut off man and beast from it, 18 even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered. 19 “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast, 20 even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”
They are only going to be saved by their own righteousness. Whenever I read something like this, I want to know how do I get this righteousness? The Biblical definition is found here:
Psalm 119:172 “My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.”
All your commandments are righteousness.
We can read in Ezekiel 18:4 “The Soul who sins shall die.”
In case you missed it, it is repeated in Ezekiel 18:20 “The soul who sins shall die.”
Then, for those who just read the New Testament, we can read in Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death.”
This then begs the question, “What is Sin?”
We have a great lesson on this Blog entitled “What is Sin?” Click here to read it.
The Biblical answer from John:
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
1John 2:3 “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
And what are the commandments we are talking about? They are the Ten Commandments as found in Exodus 20. By obeying these and only by obeying these will you be found to be righteous.
And even though you can stock up for a drought and for a famine and maybe put some medications away for pestilence, how are you going to be protected during a war? Only by having the righteousness of Noah, Job and Daniel; by keeping the Ten Commandments and having the protection of Yehovah.
