Shalom:
There are things that all humans know but perhaps don’t pay much attention to. For example; we know that all matter had a beginning and, in time, has an ending. All believers in Christ hold the view that the first words, in the Holy Bible, are a true revelation of G-d creating all things seen and unseen in the universe. His supreme creation, man, was to establish His relationship to man and His creation. “In the beginning G-d created the heavens and the earth” is given in Genesis 1:1. Believers conclude from this that G-d has a plan and purpose for His creation!Ecclesiastes 3:1 states: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Therefore, since G-d has a plan and purpose don’t you think it is important to find out what His plan and purpose is whether you are a believer or not? Believers believe that G-d has given us His plan and purpose in His word the Bible. Because G-d is, non-corporeal, having no material or physical form or substance, means He is intangible. Therefore, G-d informs us through His word in Amos 3:7: “Surely the L-rd does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”In the book of Deuteronomy G-d instructs His prophet, Moses, what to tell the people; Moses tells the people to write what they were to do on stones as a reminder of what they had been commanded to do by G-d: “And you shall write very plainly on the stones all the words of this law” (Deut. 27:8). Deuteronomy chapters 27 & 28 are chapters on blessings and curses for obedience and disobedience – read them!In Exodus 34:27 we read: “Then the L-rd said to Moses, ‘Write these words, for according to the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel.’” The L-rd communicates with us through His prophets who preach, teach, prophesy, and write what they are told. G-d’s purpose for all mankind is given by these methods. Moreover, G-d writes Himself. “At that time the L-rd said to me, (Moses) ‘Hew for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and come up to Me on the mountain and make yourself an ark of wood. And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke; and you shall put them in the ark’”(Deut. 10:1-2). For those of us who believe the Bible to be the word of G-d, this is beyond astonishing: G-d, Himself, wrote His Commandments!There is one other area believers should become acquainted with in order to understand G-d’s plan and purpose: “Then G-d said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament for 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). The phrase “for signs and seasons” isn’t talking about the winter, spring, summer, and fall seasons we commonly think of. ,The English translation completely distorts the Hebrew meaning of those two words, signs and seasons. The Hebrew word for signs is Owth, and for seasons the Hebrew word is Mow’ed. Owth gives the sense of appearing; in other words, a signal. Mow’ed means an appointment: which is a fixed time; also a signal appointed beforehand. This phrase is equivalent to an appointed (sign or time) Note: these Hebrew definitions and explanations come from the study notes of Pastor Mark Biltz in his work on “The Feasts of the L-rd.”The Bible says at Leviticus 23:1-4 a little known but most important revelation from the L-rd: “And the L-rd spoke to Moses saying: ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: the feasts of the L-rd, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts…these are the feasts of the L-rd, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times.’” To summarize all that has thus far been said: G-d has a calendar and has scheduled times for believers to meet with Him and also to proclaim, or call others to know, what is important at the end of this age!!! Keep in mind that all things come to an end: especially our life: all men die except by the Grace of G-d.!!!The Bible talks about the great and awesome day of G-d’s judgment in Joel 2:31: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the L-rd.” This prophecy can also be borne out by Peter in his sermon given in Acts 2:20 (read this). Perhaps the feasts of the L-rd coupled with signs and seasons of the sun, moon, and stars have a message of major importance from G-d regarding His plan of salvation and the end of all things as we now know them.In this year (2014) and next year (2015), we have a most interesting phenomenon, to say the least, occurring on G-d’s appointed calendar. We have two blood moons in both years and both taking place on G-d’s appointment calendar: Passover and Tabernacles; this could be a warning that something big is about to happen. I make no predictions nor do I claim any knowledge of what to expect, if anything; I do say with conviction that G-d has a plan and purpose and He always warns us when He is about to intervene in the affairs of man as it relates to Israel His, forever, chosen people according to the Scriptures.Just as I do, and perhaps you as well, want to know, just as Christ’s disciples wanted to know, when the end of this age, or things as they now are, would come to an end. “Now as He (Christ) sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying ‘Tell us, when these things will be? And what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?’” Christ answered: “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken…. (Matthew 24:3 and 29) Note: Please read all of chapter 24.Question: Since we have four blood moons in 2014 and 2015, -and by the way, we have a solar eclipse between the moons in 2014- do you think that G-d is trying to tell us something very important? The moon turns to blood on April 15, the sun turns to sack cloth (black) on the 29th, and the moon turns to blood again on October 8, and a partial sack cloth of the sun on October 23rd.For those of us who love the L-rd, keep looking up your redemption draws nigh.Until the next time, in His service,James A.
