Keep your eyes open on the evening of January 20th and morning of January 21st, because all who are up will be able to take a look at another “Blood Moon.” The Blood Moon is a total lunar eclipse, which is when the sun, earth, and moon are all in a straight line for a short period of time.
This “Blood Moon” is being called by some as “America’s Eclipse” for two reasons. The first reason is because the entire eclipse can be seen from start to finish throughout America. Secondly, it will be able to be viewed before midnight from coast to coast:
“From New York City at midtotality, the darkened moon will stand 70 degrees up from the southern horizon — your clenched fist held at arm’s length measures roughly 10 degrees in width, so that’s “seven fists” from the horizon. The last time New Yorkers could gaze so high at a totally eclipsed moon was in 1797, when John Adams was president; the next opportunity won’t come until 2113″ (Joe Rao; Space.com).
Interestingly enough, this “Blood Moon” will be taking place on the Sunday night of the three-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend in the U.S. King’s most famous address was the “I Have A Dream” speech. He was an advocate of non-violent protest and became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
President Trump was sworn into office January 20th, 2017. These are just a few coincidences of what transpired on the same day so we can use them to help us gain understanding of this SIGN in the sky:
“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years” (Gen. 1:14).
Many people see these “Blood Moons” as doomsday signs. But if you understand the Hebrew Covenant Calendar, these “Blood Moons” are for us to awaken to His Covenant promises of redemption and restoration that are taking place and to WATCH. They are a sign to BE READY. We need to take the time to hear and listen to what God is saying about furthering His Story in redeeming mankind and heaven and earth.
Just knowing that a total lunar eclipse lines the sun, moon, and earth in a line can tell us something. In order for earth to line up with heaven’s plan, we need to be abiding in His Ways. Perhaps this is a sign that God is giving America that He is shifting, shaking, and awakening our nation so that it will line up with His Covenant plan. Our nation affects many nations, so it would make sense that what happens with America will affect all the nations.
The “lining up” of the sun, moon, and earth could also be speaking about God’s promises to align (plumb line) our Spirit, Soul, and Body with His truth. Hmm, when that is fulfilled, we will see the manifestation of the Remnant receiving their glorified bodies. Given this year has been about the preparing the Remnant to ARISE, perhaps this is yet another sign to remind us of this birth coming up soon.
One thing we can safely say is that God has been giving us many Blood Moons lately that put a spotlight on the Parable of the 10 Virgins; reminding us to keep oil in our lamps (Matt 25). We need to be READY for the Lord’s arrival and the King reign here on the earth.
In recent years, we have had a lot of Blood Moons on the Feast days. Four total lunar eclipses fell on these “HOLY DAYS” two years in a row, both on Passover and Tabernacles 2014/15, which I would say are pretty significant. These four I consider a “double witness” in telling us He is advancing His Covenant story.
What is God saying to you? Why is this Blood Moon being framed as “America’s Eclipse?” These are good questions to ask while we sit with a government shut down, and a massive unrest and divide in our nation.
Today, we are definitely being prepared for a NATIONAL (governmental) movement of His Covenant promise. This incorporates a work of the Body of Christ, the NATION in Covenant with God. That in itself is not attached to this land called America. However, God promised in His word that there would be land appointed that He would ordain to be able to take on the responsibility of the “Birthright” portion of the Covenant promise until Jesus returns to reign in the Millennium. That “Birthright” included land, multiplicity of fruitfulness (spreading the Gospel), possessing the gates of the enemy, and carrying His name forward.
America has carried this torch since its inception. We have been sharing the Gospel, helping those nations who are oppressed by the enemy, all in the name of a “CHRIST-IAN” nation called America. America’s name means, “heaven’s land.” Perhaps that is why America established her nation without an earthly king, recognizing KING Jesus as her leader from her birth, knowing a day would come when He would take the reins. This was not the work of man, but of the Lord.
I believe the government shut down is prophetic in itself. We have developed a mindset in our culture to look to the President of our nation and our government for the solution to our nation’s problems, and it simply can’t fix our problem. The nation’s TRUST has shifted over the years away from God and into the wrong places. “In God We Trust” is our national motto, but is not our national reality today.
Trump’s stance in shutting the government to get approval to “build the wall” is worth noting as well. He is asking for support to “build a wall.” In an effort to stop lawlessness and evil from coming across our borders, this wall seems to be a good solution.
However, a nation that continually rejects God is a nation that is defenseless, so in a sense, no matter what wall we build, if we don’t course correct, it will be futile without God’s blessing. How this unfolds will reveal more about the SIGN for I believe that the two are connected. Definitely, God has used Trump to be His vessel to shake things up so He can perfect the promise for His government to reign.
In this winter season of the Hebrew calendar cyclically known to be the time of rest to receive great revelation, take time to ask God what He is saying about this SIGN in the sky. We know it has some signifcance with America and God’s corporate Covenant promises. We can surmise that our nation’s foundation is linked to this SIGN. And lastly, we probably can conclude that Martin Luther King Jr,. who stood bravely for freedom and equality, was a kind of “firstfruits” of great things to come when a “people” (remnant) will arise with ONE VOICE.
“In mercy and truth, atonement is provided for iniquity; and by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil” (Prov. 16:6).
