Happy Monday Manna,

Hello friends. I hope you all had a blessed weekend. I can’t believe we’re almost in April; where does the time go? Last week we touched on the impact of spiritual warfare on our lives and how scripture disproves the lies of the enemy. The topic of this week’s writing is based upon a Biblical text found in Joel- “And I will show 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 coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah” (Joel 2:30-31).

The heavens declare God’s sovereignty-this is consistent with historical events that have taken place from the beginning of time, until now. In Isaiah 38:8, God’s covenant to extend King Hezekiah’s life by fifteen years, as well as protect his kingdom against the attacks of the Assyrian army, was confirmed through a miraculous display of power by moving the sun back ten degrees. Joshua 10:12 also demonstrates God’s ability to extend the day, which gave Joshua’s army victory over the Amorites. NASA scientists were boggled by the missing day and additional forty minutes that were “unaccounted” for until a Christian NASA scientist brought forth his Bible and read both of these scriptures to his staff. NASA scientists did not confirm the Biblical events that occurred in Isaiah and Joshua; Biblical events confirmed the missing day and forty minutes.

The four blood moons symbolize signs from God that correlate to events related to Israel. Israel is the true epicenter of Biblical prophecy. The four blood moons, also called tetrads, have occurred within recent centuries: In 1492-1493, 1948-1949, 1967-1968, and another tetrad will be occurring in 2014 and 2015. According to the Jewish Talmud, the blood moon is a sign that God’s Sword is coming. A blood moon is a lunar eclipse that happens quite often, but rarely ever do they happen in a series of four within two years, especially on sacred Jewish holidays. John Hagee’s book The Four Blood Moons explains the significance of these dates and their relation to the Jewish people and Israel.

In 1492 and 1493, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand exiled all Jews from Spain, after killing millions by burning them alive. On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed establishment of the State of Israel. In 1967-1968, the six-day war, along with many other skirmishes, occurred and the dwarfed Israeli army was able to defeat armies of Egypt, Syria, Palestine, Iraq, and armies of Jordan. In doing so they killed 20,000 enemy soldiers, while only 700 Israel soldiers were killed…a true David and Goliath victory!

This year we will see a blood moon on Passover (4-15) and another on the Feast of Tabernacles (10-8). In the year of 2015, we will see a blood moon on Passover (4-4) and another on the Feast of Tabernacles (9-28). Coincidence…or is God trying to tell us something? Let’s keep our eyes on Israel, as God will allow surrounding countries to take up arms against his chosen people, as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39 but God will protect his Holy Land and his people. Let’s remain diligent in prayer for Israel and for the Church. God Bless You!
