Star Of David In The Eclipse

Gen 1:14 And Elohim 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:

Star Of David In The Eclipse
"The Creator set the sun, moon, planets, and stars in their courses as an elaborate time-keeping device that has not varied since creation. By it we understand His appointed times and seasons, which enables us to live in harmony with Him and His creation."
Total Solar Eclipses on the first of Av in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The dusk of the Church Age, and the heralding of the 70th week about to start?

250 Rabbis Sign Letter to Obama: Hands off Jerusalem
"In a reference to the upcoming “nine days” which culminate in Tisha B’Av, the rabbis tell Obama that “during these days, in which the Jewish people mourns the destruction of Jerusalem and marks the disgraceful memory of its destroyers, we are certain that you, Mr. Barack Obama, do not want to enter that disreputable list of those who raise their hand to strike Jerusalem and those who live in it.”"

NASA: Total solar eclipses occur on these dates:

* Aug. 1, 2008 (1st of Av)
* July 22, 2009 (1st of Av)
* July 11, 2010 (1st of Av)

“70th Week of Daniel” and of “Jacob’s Troubles”.

"the eclipse was most prevalent, where it OVERSHADOWED the nations with DARKNESS, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, North Korea, South Korea, Japan and Indonesia."

Orthodox and Hassidic Rabbonim Declare "Time of Jacob's Trouble"

"A Sabbatical Year in the Jewish Calendar. Started September 29, 2008, a new Sabbatical cycle will commence. It will run for seven years and conclude with another Sabbatical Year in 2014/15."
Also, you may know that Daniel’s seventieth week will be a seven-year Sabbatical cycle.
"The First of Av. The beginning of nine days of mourning for Israel. Also the date, in which most of Asia, witnessed the longest recorded Solar Eclipse.


Solar and Lunar Eclipses
by J. R. Church
“As you may know, this year is a Sabbatical Year in the Jewish Calendar. Starting next September 29, 2008, a new Sabbatical cycle will commence. It will run for seven years and conclude with another Sabbatical Year in 2014/15.”
Also, you may know that Daniel’s seventieth week will be a seven-year Sabbatical cycle. Students of biblical prophecy have long compared Daniel’s seventieth week with the Tribulation Period as laid out in the book of Revelation.
Intrigued with the Scriptures that repeat over and over again that our Savior’s Second Coming will be heralded with signs in the heavens, in which the sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, Pastor Mark Biltz went on the Internet, to a U.S. Government web site, to see if he could find any solar or lunar eclipses over the next few years that might be significant.

To his surprise, he found four lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses in the Sabbatical Year of 2014 and 2015. Also, he noticed that they all appear on Jewish Holy Days!"

Lunar Eclipses

The four lunar eclipses will occur on:

Passover, April 15, 2014
The Feast of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014
Passover, April 4, 2015 and
The Feast of Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

This is most unusual. It is a rare occurrence for four lunar cycles to happen on successive Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) observances. It will not happen again for hundreds of years. However, Mark found that a series of four lunar eclipses on these particular holy days did occur in the twentieth century -- not once, but twice! The first set occurred in 1949-1950, the year after Israel became a state! The second set happened in 1967-1968, the year Israel liberated Jerusalem! Such a phenomenon is nigh unto impossible, unless it was set up by Divine design. Mark looked back in history and noticed that the last time this set of four lunar eclipses occurred on Passover and Sukkot was in 1493, the year after Columbus sailed the ocean blue and Spain expelled all Jews.

As we look at the next seven years, we wonder, “What is יהוה telling Israel through the upcoming lunar eclipses?” Is it possible that these are fulfilling biblical prophecies?

Solar Eclipses

In addition to the four lunar eclipses in 2014-15, two solar eclipses will occur on:

Adar 29/Nisan 1, March 20, 2015
The Feast of Trumpets, September 13, 2015

These two dates are quite significant because they are special days in Jewish calendar. For example, it was on Nisan 1, the first anniversary of the Exodus, that Mosheh raised up the tabernacle for the first time and the glory of יהוה descended. Two weeks later, the children of Israel, observed their first Pentecost since the Exodus.

Nisan 1 marks the beginning of the religious festival cycle. Six months later, on Tishri 1, the children of Israel, observe Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets. This day is highly prophetic, because it is said to be the anniversary of the Creation of Adam. It is Adam’s birthday. And, even though it's a Jewish observance, it is prophetically significant as a day for Gentile nations.

It is the day when יהוה will sit down upon His throne of Judgment and take the books in his hand. That is when He will begin the judgment of the world. So, a solar eclipse on Rosh Hashanah could precede the Second Coming of Yeshua in power and great glory, and fulfill the biblical description.

The Solar Eclipse This Year

Coming up this summer, there will be the first of three solar eclipses on the day that introduces the first of Av (August 1, 2008). That’s right, all three solar eclipses will be on the biblical date of Av 1, for the next three years -- 2008, 2009, and 2010. Our Gregorian calendar dates are:

Av 1 - August 1, 2008 - partial eclipse
Av 1 - July 22, 2008 - partial eclipse
Av 1 - July 11, 2010 - partial eclipse

In the Jewish calendar, they are all on the first of Av, the day when Jews lament the destruction of the temples. As the story goes, Mosheh caught the people worshiping the Golden Calf on Tammuz 17. Therefore, the three weeks from Tammuz 17 to Av 9 are called “the dark time” and “between the straits.” It is the most sorrowful time of the year for Jewish people. From Av 1-9, no bathing is allowed; no comforts; no clean clothes; we take our shoes off; sits on an overturned chairs and reads the book of Lamentations.

However, there will come a time when יהוה will reverse the fast days and turn them into feast days. Zechariah said:

“Thus saith the YHWH of hosts; The fast of the fourth month [Tammuz 17], and the fast of the fifth [Av 9], and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace” (Zech. 8:19).

Mark Biltz seems to think that the solar eclipses on Av 1, could change the course of history, because solar eclipses are designed for Gentile nations, whereas lunar eclipses are designed for Israel? Therefore, he thinks that יהוה could begin judging the nations soon? Will there be a war in Israel? It is entirely possible. If so, then the solar eclipse could be announcing judgment upon the world -- a sobering thought!

Bible Predictions
About the Sun and Moon

Now, let’s look at the places in the Bible that speak of the sun being darkened and the moon not giving her light. First of all, Isaiah wrote:

“Behold, the day of the YHWH cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger ... the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

“And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible” (Isa. 13:9-11).

We are told that this will occur in the “day of the YHWH.” It is the time when יהוה will punish the Gentile nations for their wickedness. We are not talking about ordinary everyday living, but gross wickedness against יהוה and His Chosen People. יהוה calls them arrogant, proud and haughty. He says that they are terrible, evil and wicked. It seems to me that he is referring to the nations that are trying to destroy Israel. Again, Isaiah said:

“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the YHWH of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously” (Isa. 24:23).

Since neither the sun or moon has a conscience, the references to being confounded or ashamed seem to be metaphoric of the condition of man on earth. The darkening of the sun and moon, therefore, are signs of man’s condition. These conditions will prevail at the time of the YHWH’s return to judge the wicked and establish His kingdom. Isaiah was the first prophet to write about solar and lunar eclipses, but Yo’ĕl ’s passages are the most widely quoted. Yo’ĕl wrote:

“The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

“And the YHWH shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the YHWH is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?” (Yo’ĕl 2:10,11).

Again, Yo’ĕl said:

“And I will shew 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 great and terrible day of the YHWH come” (Yo’ĕl 2:30,31).

Finally, Yo’ĕl said:

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the YHWH is near in the valley of decision.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining” (Yo’ĕl 3:14,15).

Isaiah and Yo’ĕl are the only Old Testament prophets that mentioned solar and lunar apparitions in the day of the YHWH. In each case, however, it is apparent that they are referring to events that precede the messianic kingdom. Yo’ĕl adds earthquakes, blood, fire and pillars of smoke. I think he is describing the battles that attend the Tribulation Period, especially the final Battle of Armageddon.

Gen 1:14 And Elohim 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:
