"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 Yahweh." Joel 2:30 -31

In the coming next several years many signs in the heavens are coming at us at a time when most of us on Earth are looking around us at the momentous, and incredible things happening around us right here. In Luke 21 we are told however to 'look up'..... I believe the Lord meant it when He told us in THIS season we are moving into to LOOK UP!
“For the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.”
(Amos 3:7) ..... These are signs that are not secrets. However if you are asleep maybe you will miss out on these extraordinary celestial events. One thing we can be sure of is that the Lord has, and will be alerting those that have eyes to see and ears to hear. Are you awake? Are you aware that the Lord your God is preparing His remnant people for the days spoken of in Scripture as 'like a woman in travail' right before her giving birth? Do you really think Heaven hasn't noticed what is going on down on Planet Earth? I've been looking at Biblical prophecy for over 30 years. I have seen this World change in amazing and alarming ways. Sorry to say, but I have also seen the flock of our Lord change too and I think the depth of the spiritual hibernation among God's own to be even more alarming. The Lord has given His covenant people these signs in the Heavens to encourage and to awaken. We should look up because, indeed, our redeemer is drawing nigh..... He's coming and we need to prepare!
In the next 4 years or so we will see major signs in the skies around us, in the Heavenly places that are foretold of in the Bible. These signs fulfill ancient and long looked for prophecies just prior to the return of Messiah,Yeshua. If any one of these signs were happening, it would, or should, make us, the followers of Yeshua stand up in wonderment. The fact that we can point to 7, 8 or 9 Heavenly signs of this magnitude is almost more than can be fathomed. The fact that these signs all occur on Jewish holidays is all the more astounding. Let's take a quick look at some of these:
1, Comet Ison:
On November 28, 2013, the first day of Chanukkah this comet becomes its brightest as it gets close to the sun and begins circling it. Whenever Yahweh begins to show celestial signs during Biblical and Jewish feast days people need to pay attention. His ways are perfect.
2. Blood Red Moon:
Beginning on April 15, 2014, the first of 4 Blood Red moons (Lunar Tetrad) occurs exactly on Passover. This lunar tetrad in 2014-15 is only the third tetrad to happen in over 500 years. The last time was in 1967 when the Six Day War amazed the World and the last one before that was 1948 when Israel became a nation. Actually this tetrad was in 1949-50 showing that the events on the ground always show something that God is observing and will judge. The Lunar Tetrad of 1493-94 was at the height of the Spanish Inquisition. This sign, the Lunar Tetrad is always about Israel and portends war , bloodshed and divine judgement.
3. 2nd Blood Red Moon:
On October 8, 2014, the second Blood Red moon occurs on Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. Remember that Sukkot is the harvest celebration. Many have predicted war in the middle east and remember that Israel is always surrounded by her enemies.
4. Solar Eclipse:
On March 20th, 2015 there will be a full solar eclipse just 2 weeks before the spring feasts. According to the Talmud, a lunar eclipse (blood red moon) has to do with Israel and the Israeli people and solar eclipses have to do with the world. The fact that this happens on Nisan 1, the first day of the civil near year is pretty amazing and should serve as a warning to Planet Earth.
5. 3rd Blood Red Moon:
April 4, 2015 is Passover. This marks the 3rd Blood Moon within a year, all culminating on the Lord's feast days. Do you really think this could be a coincidence? Also, just 2 weeks after a total solar eclipse should make everyone with discernment stand up and take notice. This is less than a year and a half from now.
6. Partial Solar Eclipse:
On the Feast of Trumpets, Yom Teruah of 2015 a partial solar eclipse occurs to begin the Fall Feasts. Perhaps this will be a day to mark on your calendar because this could portend something very major, something of BIBLICAL proportions. This is also the anniversary of the infamous Oslo accords signed in Washington DC in 1993.
7. 4th Blood Red Moon:
On September 28, 2015 we will see not only a Blood Red moon, but this will be what is known as a 'Super Blood Red Moon'. The moon does not circle our planet in a perfect orbit, but eliptical, or oval. On this the 4th Blood Red moon, the moon will be as close to Earth as it can and will be Blood Red. It seems that Heaven will be crying out her plea to God's people to get ready, wake up, and not be caught off guard. Are you prepared for what is about to happen during this awesome time in the World's history? I intend to be.
There are several other watershed moments happening in the next few years, especially when we reach the year 2017. Hear O Israel, the Lord our God the Lord is One....... prepare your hearts for the soon coming of the Mashiach, our Redeemer and King: Yeshua, the Living Son of the Living God!
