We’re seeing amazing phenomena this year. A Blood Moon (total lunar eclipse) took place on April 4, 2015 – The first day of Passover. Now a Super moon, lunar eclipse and Blood Moon will take place on Sunday night/ Monday morning, September 27-28 – The first day of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles.)
Is this simply an uncanny coincidence? Or an astonishing display of “signs in the heavens”? Do you wonder what these things really mean? You are not alone!
Judgment on the sins of America?
Prophecies, opinions and theological debates abound from every direction. Believers around the world are trying to make sense of it all. One common theme, repeated by many people, is that something BAD is going to happen! I've heard people pronounce that God is bringing judgment on the sins of America.
And I would like to pose this question: Why?
May I share my heart with you about the Blood Moons? Most of you have heard my testimony of visitations from the Lord and archangel Michael, the Angel of Israel. As a man of the Word, as well as an eye-witness of a mighty Revival hanging in the spiritual atmosphere over America, I hear the Lord say,
"Do not fear, little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." (Luke 12:32)
Perspective is everything! If you have a "good news" mentality, you'll see the Form of the Lord. I believe mercy triumphs over judgment. I believe God is preparing to release a mighty outpouring of Glory that will launch Revival like we’ve never seen before.
It’s time for Revival, not Judgment!
In 2015 a Blood Moon appeared literally ON the first day of Passover. And again on the first day of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles.) If that's not a "sign in the heavens" I don't know what is! Indeed, notable signs in the stellar heavens.
But one thing we goyim (Gentiles) need to understand: The Jewish calendar IS a lunar calendar. The major celebrations normally coincide with the activity of the moon. Because God himself set it up that way! Every so often, eclipses or Blood Moons occur.
It has been 33 years since this last rare combination of Super moon, eclipse and Blood Moon. And we won’t see it again for 18 more years. The scripture is full of descriptions of signs in the heavens.
Here are some signs in the heavens, as found in God's Word:
Joshua 10: Large hailstones fell on Israel's enemies, and then the "sun stood still" for approx. 24 hours until Joshua's army gained the victory against the Amorites.
2 Kings 20: The shadow of a sun dial "went backward ten degrees" as a sign that God had healed King Hezekiah.
Matt.2:2: At Jesus' birth, wise men came looking for the Christ child. They said, "For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him."
(In the year 4 B.C., a star in the East was a stellar sign at Jesus' birth. To spiritually sensitive people, it pointed to good news, salvation and God's love. But to Herod and the religious rulers, it meant bad news, trouble and fear. Herod slaughtered Israel's babies because of it. That was not judgment from God! In fact, God brought judgment on King Herod for his actions!)
Luke 23:44-45: At Jesus’ crucifixion it is recorded there was "darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened..."
Matt.27:51-53: When Jesus died and yielded up His spirit, "the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many." (The earthquake was not a sign in the heavens, but it is an example of the spiritual realm affecting the physical planet.)
Acts 9:3: On the road to Damascus. Paul was breathing murderous threats against the disciples of Jesus when a "light from heaven flashed around him" and knocked him off his donkey. He had an encounter with Jesus, gave His life to the Lord and eventually wrote two-thirds of the New Testament.
Do any of these look like the End of the World?
These are only a few of the many signs recorded in the Bible. Let me ask, do any of these look like the End of the World to you? Were they signs of impending doom, or impending Glory? Personally, I see them as signs of Glory!
First of all, realize there are two heavens: the physical, stellar heavens and the spiritual heavens. Look for what is happening in both realms. In order to properly interpret a sign, one must recognize the spiritual realm first. The Creator before the creation. (Romans 1:25)
Too many prophetic people are, in effect, worshiping the creation instead of the Creator. They're misinterpreting the signs! Why do they presume it means something bad? It troubles me when people "jump to judgment" and skip right past Mercy. They don't believe Revival is really coming.
It's as if they're hoping for judgment! They seem to want these "sinners" to get their punishment. And that's not how God feels about it! That’s not how He works! He wants Mercy, not sacrifice. He wants as many souls to come to Him as possible. He wants the Kingdom of Heaven to invade Planet Earth! God still “so loves” the world, people. Where sin abounds, grace much more abounds.
Jesus didn’t say, “Go into all the world and pronounce judgment on every creature.” He said the god of this world (Satan) has already been judged! Salvations, healings, and other miracles enforce that judgment!
The problem seems to be in the perceiving. Perspective is everything! If you have a "good news" or "revival" mindset or belief system, you'll see the Form of the Lord in the midst of every situation.
(Numbers 12:8) Your heart and your words will line up with what you see.
But if you have a "bad news" or "judgment" mindset, you'll focus on what the devil is doing. And your heart and words will line up with that. In either case, your heart and words will release whatever you believe into the atmosphere. That's important to know.
I believe these signs are pointing to a mighty release of God's Glory on the Earth. Something significant and miraculous is in store for Israel, yes. And also for the Nations! His heart is for the Nations of the earth, including America.
Throne Room Glory is being released!
I see a season of Revival coming, similar to the manifestation seen in the 1960's & 70's. Only much more powerful this time, because the Prophet and Apostle have been restored to the Body of Christ. The restoration of the Five-Fold Ministry, 3rd-Heaven authority and the government of God. Throne room Glory is being released!
In part of my vision of the coming Revival, I saw the colors of the rainbow swirling above the United States. Angel Michael told me it was Revival. And it was preparing to touch down.
"Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day... This was the appearance of the likeness of the Glory of the Lord." (Ezekiel 1:28 bold my own)
Regardless of physical signs, as believers it's always our job to release God's Kingdom into the Earth.
It's our calling to properly discern the times and say what God says. Speak His Word. Stay in faith and walk in love. Prophesy Revival! Decree Spiritual Awakening! Look for the Glory of God! That is the key to overcoming evil and aligning ourselves with the Days of Destiny that are at hand.
According to God's Word, Revival and the "harvest of the earth" (souls) must come before Judgment. (Rev.14) Look closely at the scriptures. The words of Jesus in Matthew and Luke. John's mighty encounter with Heaven in the book of Revelation. Scripturally, the harvest of souls must come first!
Revival always comes before Judgment.
"I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.
"And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."
