Except There Come A Falling Away

 The decline of Christianity parallels the decline of America.  "We are no longer a Christian nation" - Barack Obama, President of the United States.  His words portray what has been happening to the United States.  Never mind the myriads of letters and documents from the Pilgrim's arrival at Plymouth, to America's first text book, to each states Constitutions acknowledge the God of the Bible,
Of all the writings in American History that confirm belief in the God of the Bible, there is one document of the early US that secularists and atheists have seized upon. In the face of the myriads of letters and documents of our founding era confirming that the United States was founded on faith in God, this one document, the Treaty of Tripoli, article 11, which states, "...As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion."   (The provided link goes into detail concerning that alleged statement) is held up by secularists as proof that the government of the United States was founded as a strictly secular nation.

It cannot be denied that American culture revered the God of the Bible, particularly Christianity as it was common to include in the date block in those early letters and documents the statement, "In the year of our Lord..." which obviously refers to the Lord Jesus Christ.

One doesn't have to do more than look at the lyrics of America's early anthems, poems and songs to see how the Christian faith permeated society in the United States.  The last stanza of the National
Anthem, by Francis Scott Key in 1814 says this:
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!  

Then, going up to the Civil War, these familiar lyrics were written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861:

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.  
Right up to 1913 when Kathryn Bates penned "America the Beautiful." 

"God shed His Grace on Thee..."   Indeed He did!  And while we're still singing these wonderful anthems - and many more, we do see a 'falling away' from those principles, and a turning away from the God of the Bible.  The courts have ruled against Christians in favor of homosexual rights, and the abortions that have taken over 60 million lives.  There is a decline in the Christian faith nationwide.  Here are the stats:  
 Just a short time ago, and symptomatic of the decline of America is the removal of the Ten Commandments from the Courthouse in Oklahoma, all under cover of dark.  

There is a not so subtle war against people of faith, and it's getting worse.  One person is offended by a cross, a nativity scene, or a painting of Jesus, and they are removed. A baker, minister or photographer  and even a rancher loses their lively-hood to homosexuals who demand their services even though there are many alternatives to meet their desires.  The first amendment puts the practice of religious freedom the very first right, but the Supreme Court has elevated homosexual rights above the Constitution.  They have also made the woman's 'right to abortion' law to the death of an estimated 58,500,000 children. in the US.  

Obama was right, we can no longer call ourselves a Christian nation.  We've turned our backs on God, so we cannot expect His protection.  We've turned to idols, because when we kick God out, that leaves a vacuum, and something else will fill it.  The rainbow was God's promise to Noah, and it has been taken over by homosexuals,  The White House was lit up in celebration of the Supreme Courts illegal decision to mandate homosexual marriage to be honored in all 50 states. 

God's Sign - Holy Promise:
The defiant use of  God's holy promise to symbolize the unholy practice defining homosexuality.
When you take something holy and corrupt it, do you really count on God's protection?  Take God out of America and something else enters.  Something very evil and sinister:  And it's in New York now.   The demon goddess Kali was projected onto the Empire State Building light show.  

So now we're turned from Christ to demons, we've corrupted the holy institution of marriage, which Jesus defined as exclusively ordained by God as exclusively between male and female, and we've turned to demons - Kali, with her tongue dipped in blood.  The present administration has called "good as evil and evil as good."  Thomas Jefferson gave this ominous statement:     "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that His justice cannot sleep forever."

I do too Mr. Jefferson, I do too.

The same defiance that parallels the judgment that came upon Israel was summed up in the words of Isaiah - (Isa 9:10  "The bricks have fallen, but we will build with dressed stones; the sycamores have been cut down, but we will put cedars in their place.")was spoken by our leaders.  This was the Harbinger that Jonathan Cahn spoke of.  The defiant words that President Obama wrote on the top beam of the Freedom Tower over ground zero.  
So, is America's judgment sealed?  America is no longer a Christian nation.  We're jaded, banal and defiant. We call evil good and good, evil.  America can no longer expect the propitious blessings of heaven.  Pray for America.  It may not be too late.  George Washington

Terrorism in Oregon and Silence at the UN

A school shooting in Oregon has left a number of students dead and wounded including the shooter.  Before any of the facts were made known, President Barack Obama appeared in front of network news to decry the violence and once again blame guns for the deaths.  The presidents rhetoric was not unlike any other school shooting except now he admitted to his politicalization of the crisis.  Authorities in Oregon said that no gun law would have stopped the attack.  The campus was a gun free zone making it a soft target.  Reportedly there was a security guard on campus but he was unarmed.
So far little has been said about the motive that propelled the shooter into killing fellow students, however witnesses said he had the students sit, and one by one he asked them if they were Christian.  Responding "yes," he would immediately execute them by shooting them in the head.  If they responded "no," he would shoot them in the leg. On his computer there were links to two radical Muslims, but so far no indication of his own beliefs.

Meanwhile, at the United Nations, Israels leader, Benjamin Netanyahu gave his address in which neither President Obama or Secretary of State, John Kerry were present.  In his address,  Netanyahu said that he will do whatever it takes to protect his country and not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.  He chided the world body for its "deafening silence" to speak out when Iran has threatened to wipe Israel from the earth as they push for nuclear weapons.  As he made the statement, there was an eerie, complete silence for 45 seconds as Mr. Netanyahu glared at the assembly in obvious disdain. 

The Russians have ordered the US to cease and disist missions over Syria.  Russian leader Putin has said the Russians would fly combat missions against ISIS, but so far their combat missions have been to attack the moderates supported by the US and its allies.  All this since the fourth and final blood moon of this last Tetrad (corresponding to Jewish holy days) for the next 500 years.

Coming Events In The Perview of the Hebrew Calendar

Upcoming dates 


Tisha B'Av (The 9th of Av)   Bad things historically happen to Israel~ this year it will fall on~ July 25, 2015 

Elul 29 on the Jewish Calendar ~ In the past few decades Elul 29 has spelled a financial collapse or re-set involving the economy via the stock market.  This year it falls on Sunday, September 13, 2015.  If it continues, the stock market will either experience a collapse on Friday, September 11th or Monday, September 14th.  (For America, 9/11) bears more significance, and Monday, September 14th is The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashana or Rosh Chodesh).  And the final Blood Moon of this Tetrad occurs on September 28th.  
This will give conspiracy theorists some dates to play with and the rest of us something to watch for - remember, we are instructed to "watch and pray."    

The Abomination

Welcome to those of you who have been following.  I received a telephone call from my brother who had mistakenly thought I'd predicted that Christ was going to return on the first blood moon.  Now I have never predicted such a thing.  One can easily check out what I've said by reviewing my comments on earlier posts in The Fundi Driveby.

I do believe that the rapture (sometimes confused with Christ's second advent)) could take place at any time whereas the 'second advent' will be when Christ returns to Mt. Olivet, Jerusalem to establish a thousand years of peace. That being said, those with a mid-tribulation theory of the rapture have had some influence on my pre-trib "theology."  The reason I say that is the scripture says (2Th 2:3)  "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."  That incident is referred to by Jesus Christ as "the abomination of desolation" in the Bible:

[[Matthew 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 

Mark 13:14  But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: 

Dan 9:27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. ]]

We know that in Israel, most of the preparations for the Third Temple have been underway for some time, putting the Bible ahead of the news.

The Seven Hebrew Feasts That God Says Are His (Lev. 23:2).

The passover lamb.  When the Hebrews were in bondage in Egypt, a series of 10 plagues came upon the Egyptians because the Pharaoh resisted God.  Prior to the final plague, which was the death of the firstborn in all of the land, God instructed the Hebrews to sacrifice a lamb and place it's blood on the door posts and lintel of each home, and that all the firstborn were to remain in the home. Then death would pass over each home where the blood of the lamb was applied to the door.  That's why it is called "pass over."  As if the finger of God pointed to Christ - John the Baptist introduced Jesus Christ to the world in terms that foreshadowed His death - "And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he (John the baptist) saith, Behold the Lamb of God! 

Lev 23:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

The ‘feasts’ in the above scripture comes from the Hebrew word, “moed” and literally means “appointments”.  Therefore, these are God’s “appointments.”  The way these feasts are kept by Jews significantly point to God’s Redeemer…Jesus Christ.

The Spring Feasts Fulfilled by Jesus Christ

1.    Passover (Pesach) – Lev. 23:5
2.    Unleavened Bread – Lev. 23:6
3.    First Fruits – Lev. 23:12
4.    Pentecost (Shavuot) – Lev. 23:15; Deut. 16:9

The Fall Feasts  To be fulfilled by Jesus Christ

5.    Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah) Lev. 23:23-25
6.    Atonement (Yom Kippur) Lev. 23:26-32
7.    Tabernacles (Sukkot) Lev. 23:33-43

With the full knowledge of his impending crucifixion, Jesus was thinking of others rather than himself when he referred to the spring feasts as opposed to the fall feasts with regard to the great tribulation. He predicted what would come at the end of the age, when the wrath of God would be poured out on the earth.  “For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.  Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.  For if they do these (crucify the Son of God) things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?” (Luke 23:30)  Ref: – “Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us…     And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?- Rev. 6.

 JESUS personally fulfilled the first four (spring) ‘appointments’ listed in Leviticus 23, it is logical to expect that JESUS will personally fulfill the three final appointments as well, and that is exactly what the bible says.  “This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. “

The next appointment on God’s calendar is Trumpets." 

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thess. 4:16, 17.

April 4, 2015 - Passover Third Blood Moon

The amazing thing about this blood moon tetrad is that this is only the eighth blood moon tetrad to fall on Jewish Holy days since the time of Christ.  This marks the third blood moon of the current tetrad.  I was a bit disappointed since I was unable to actually sit on my driveway and watch it because of the cloud cover in my town (hopefully we'll get some rain out of those clouds). None the less I was able to see it televised live on the NASA channel.

The eight blood moon tetrads have each marked historic significance to the tiny nation of Israel. 
Since the first blood moon of this current tetrad we've seen the rise and spread of ISIS, the ebola outbreak in Africa, numerous terrorist attacks including massacres in Tunisia, Kenya, and the fall of Yemen.

We have also witnessed the personal animosity that the POTUS has shown to Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu when he came to America with a warning about negotiations with Israel's sworn enemy, Iran.  I find it strange that President Obama freely talks with Muslim leaders, even inviting members of the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House for Ramadan celebrations, but refuses to speak to Mr. Netanyahu, the leader of America's greatest ally.  While these negotiations were taking place in Switzerland, the Iranian mullahs were crying out, "Death to America." 

While Secretary of State, John Kerry sits at the table with the Iranians hammering out a deal - reminds me of the verse, ( Dan 11:27 )  "And both of them, the kings, shall have in their hearts to do evil, and they will speak lies at one table. But it will not prosper, for the end still shall be at the appointed time."  Time will tell, there is rejoicing in Iran, but concern in Israel.

We are in the middle of the Blood Moon Tetrad.  It has been said that lunar eclipses are not unusual but that four consecutive Blood Moons (Tetrad) that fall on God's feast days are quite rare and always have significance for Israel.  Solar eclipses, on the other hand have significance among gentile nations. 

The total solar eclipse will occur on March 20, 2015 and be visible in Northern Europe.  It will not be seen over the Western US.  It happens on the Jewish New Year for KINGS.  

Interestingly enough a strong Solar storm is bombarding the earth at this writing (March 17, 2015) and the Northern Lights are being seen well below the arctic circle.  Do these events mean that the Messiah is going to return on this date?  I think not.  Could it have no significance at all?  That is possible, but I doubt it.  Israel is having their elections today but the results might not be known for several days who the actual winner is.  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  Could it be significant for Northern Europe, where the eclipse will be seen?  We'll find out in three days.   Blessings on you as you watch and pray.

The Star Of Bethlehem

Rick Larson presents this video, "The Star of Bethlehem" as he goes back in time and explores the night skies that led the Magi to Bethlehem to honor the birth of the King of the Jews.

Scholars debate whether the Star of Bethlehem is a legend created by the early church or a miracle that marked the advent of Christ. Is it possible that the star was a real, astronomical event? From Producer Stephen McEveety (The Passion of the Christ) comes an amazing documentary on the Star of Bethlehem. This presentation as seen by tens of thousands in the U.S. and in Europe explores the exciting truth of

Super Moon The Perigee Full Blood Moon of Sukkot 2015

When the moon is at its closest point to the earth, (within 224,834 miles measured from the center of the moon to the center of the earth).  The term 'super moon' was coined by an astrologer,  Richard Nolle, over 30 years ago but was popularized by the media in 2011 to describe what astronomers always referred to as a perigee full moon, or a perigee new moon.

On average there are 4 - 6 "Super Moon's a year, so they are not uncommon.  Why mention them?  There is coming a rare occurrence of a super (full moon), which is also a blood moon and it is the final blood moon of the current blood moon tetrad, and it happens to be on September 28, 2015 - which is Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) and the  beginning of the Hebrew year of Jubilee, and this blood moon  will be seen in Jerusalem, Israel. 

The Feast of Tabernacles is one of the Seven Feasts of the LORD, three of which are "pilgrimage convocations" in which all Jewish males were required to attend at Jerusalem to "appear before the Lord."  

Deu 16:16  Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty.
 In the seventh Sukkot, not only all Jewish males, but the entire population was required to attend, and listen as the King of the Jews would read from the Law.
 In Sukkot, not only all Jewish males, but the entire population was required to attend. 

Deu 31:10 -12  And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles, When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing. Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
Not only is Sukkot, 2015 a special feast, but it is in the seventh year, or a Shemitah year .  Do you get the feeling that this is building up to a climax of historic proportions? Yet again there is more. Not only is this a Shemitah year, it is the seventh Shemitah, or a Shemitah of Shemitah's, and a completion of 49 years and which the following year is the 50th year which is the Hebrew year of Jubilee. 

AS Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has said, most of the economic shocks to the U S economy have happened on the 29th of Elul, in a Shemitah year.  In 2015 (a Shemitah year) the 29th of Elul occurs on Sunday, September 13th which is the eve of the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah).  Any financial collapse would (most likely) not happen on that date since the markets are closed.  However, the last business day before that closure would be Friday, September 11th, which has a hauntingly historic significance for Americans.

Many Jews and Christians believe that the coming of Messiah will happen on the Feast of Trumpets.  Who that Messiah is, among Christians, there can be no doubt - it is none other than Jesus Christ, who fulfilled 315 prophecies.  Many Jews yet reject Him as Messiah, and Jesus predicted that.  Jesus said that in rejecting Him, they would receive another - a false Shepherd.
(ref.  Zec. 11:16 -17)   

 John 5:43  I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Have you received Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord?  He stands at your hearts door and has been knocking.  Won't you invite Him in?  He will forgive your past and He will come in to your heart and He will give you a future that you could never earn on your own..

Happy Thanksgiving



President Ronald Reagan's Thanksgiving Proclamation

Thursday, November 26, 1987; 8:00 AM
Thanksgiving Day is one of our most beloved holidays, an occasion set aside by Americans from earliest times to thank our Maker prayerfully and humbly for the blessings and the care He bestows on us and on our beautiful, bountiful land. Through the decades, through the centuries, in log cabins, country churches, cathedrals, homes, and halls, the American people have paused to give thanks to God, in times of peace and plenty or of danger and distress.
Acknowledgement of dependence on God's favor was, in fact, our fledgling nation's very first order of business. When the delegates to the First Continental Congress met in Philadelphia in 1774, they overcame discord by uniting in prayer for our country. Despite the differences among them as they began their work, they found common votes in the 35th Psalm, which concludes with a verse of joyous gratitude, "And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long."
This year, of course, our Thanksgiving Day celebration coincides with the bicentennial of the Constitution. In 1789 the government established by that great charter of freedom, and "the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed," were cited by George Washington in the first Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation as among "the great and various favors" conferred upon by the Lord and Ruler of Nations. As we thank the God our first president called "that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be," we have even greater cause for gratitude than the fresh triumphs that inspired Washington's prose. We have seen the splendor of our natural resources spread across the tables of the world, and we have seen the splendor of freedom coursing with new vigor through the channels of history.
The cause for which we give thanks, for which so many of our citizens through the years have given their lives, has endured 200 years -- a blessing to us and a light to all mankind.
On Thanksgiving Day, 1987, let us, in this unbroken chain of observance, dedicate ourselves to honor anew the Author of Liberty and to publicly acknowledge our debt to all those who have sacrificed so much in our behalf. May our gratitude always be coupled with petitions for divine guidance and protection for our nation and with ready help for our neighbors in time of need.
Now, therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 26, 1987, as a National Day of Thanksgiving, and I call upon the citizens of this great nation to gather together in homes and places of worship on that day of thanks to affirm by their prayers and their gratitude the many blessings God has bestowed upon us.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of July, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twelfth.

What Will Happen In 2015?

A blood moon article that I find very interesting and informative.  What interests me most is cogent way Rodcma has distilled and refined the predictions of the Bible with current Biblical Scholars.  Many of the subjects he covers in detail will be of interest to you as well.

What Then?


When the great factory-plants of our cities
Have turned-out their last finished works,
When our merchants have sold their last products,
And sent home the last of the Clerks;
When our banks have transacted their business,
And paid out the last dividend;
When the Judge of the Earth calls a reckoning,
And asks for a balance -WHAT THEN?

When the Church choir has sung its last anthem,
And the preacher has made his last prayer;
When the people have heard their last sermon,
And the sound has died out on the air;
When the Bible lies closed on the pulpit,
And the pews are all empty of men,
When each one stands facing his record,
And the Great Book is opened - WHAT THEN?

When the actors have played their last drama.
And the mimic has made his last fun,
When the film has flashed its last picture,
And the billboard displayed its last run;
When the crowds seeking pleasure have vanished,
And gone out in the darkness again,
When the trumpet of ages is sounded,
And we all stand before Him - WHAT THEN?

When the bugle-call sinks into silence,
And the long marching columns stand still;
When the captain repeats his last orders,
And they've captured the last fort and hill;
When the flag has been hauled from the mast-head,
And peace seems to reign among men,
When those who rejected the Saviour
Are asked for a reason - WHAT THEN?

Partial Solar Eclipse Today

October 23, 2014

Today, a partial solar eclipse will be seen by largely the same audience that observed the second and most recent total lunar eclipse of the current tetrad. 

I really don't see any biblical connection with this particular event, but if you're interested you might follow this link to: "This Day in History."

Signs in the Heavens



Two Blood Moons Have Passed:

I received an e-mail from a gentleman who scoffed at the blood moon tetrad saying, "So what?  It hasn't affected me so far!"  I replied "that's the key...'so far.'"

The blood moon tetrad is a signal, yet when you look at the Jewish calendar, there appears to be a sequence unlike anything seen before in this generation.

Since I cited Jonathan Cahn in his book, "The Harbinger," one of the "Harbingers" was the replacement of the sycamore tree (which was destroyed in the 'first attack' of 9-11-01) with the 'Erez' tree.  [Isaiah 9:10 - "Bricks have fallen, but we will build with cut stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will use cedars instead.

A literal fulfillment took place with a  spruce tree (which is of the same family as the cedar), a conifer that was named the "Tree of Hope" was planted in the exact spot where the sycamore had been.  Despite all of the efforts of expert arborists, the 'Tree of Hope' withered and died.  It was removed, and then completely shredded on the day of the first blood moon of the tetrad.
Just another sign?  How about the earliest reporting of the current Ebola outbreak first reported on the evening of the first blood moon? 
How about the second blood moon, October 8, 2014?  What can one say about that?
Well, Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., died today (Oct.8, 2014).  He first sought medical help when his symptoms led to his seeking medical attention on September 25, 2014 - the day of "Rosh Hashana" on the Jewish calendar.  This comes on the heels of President Obama reassuring America that there is little change of the deadly disease reaching America's shores.
So much for that.

Today, Islamic radicals in Ottawa, Canada saw the results of an apparent follower of ISIS or ISIL if you please, going on a killing spree.  AS of this writing, the details remain sketchy but the times we're living in show a convergence of events predicted in both the Old and New Testament writings of the Holy Scriptures.

So What Lies Ahead?

America's borders are relatively unsecured and estimates are such that there are over 12 million undocumented aliens currently residing in the US, so it stands to reason that Islamic terrorists are among that number.  Can what is unfolding in Canada today not be expected to happen in the US?  With the American parallel to a God rejecting Israel as outlined in The Harbinger, perhaps we can have an idea of when the next big thing will happen - and perhaps it will occur with an astronomical signpost. 

Partial Solar Eclipse of 2014 Oct 23:
Since Solar Eclipses are regarded by some Hebrew scholars as having to do with Gentile nations, something of note happening might be something to watch for.  The eclipse will begin around 1:35 p.m. in Seattle. As the Earth turns, the rest of the country will be treated to the phenomenon closer to sunset, with it reaching New York at 5:49 p.m. and Tallahassee, Florida, at 6:09 p.m.

Until tomorrow!   God bless all who trust in Jesus.

The Rapture Near?


"Blood Moons" (total lunar eclipses) are not unusual, but a "Blood Moon Tetrad" is when 4 consecutive total lunar eclipses occur within a year.  This tetrad is even more rare since the four blood moons happen on Jewish Holy Feast days. Since the time of Christ until 2013 seven blood moon tetrads have happened and each time there were significant events which impacted the Jewish people within a year of the first or last blood moon of that particular tetrad.  We are now in the midst of the 8th such tetrads, of which the first eclipse has already occurred (on April 15, 2014) with three to follow within a year.  What is a blood moon?
It is when the moon takes on a red hue during a total lunar eclipse because the sunlight moving through earths atmosphere is filtered allowing only the red spectrum to be focused on the moon.
  As discussed in the previous two articles on The Fundi Driveby, this September 24-25th (2014) marks the beginning of a Jewish Shemitah year which ends on the 29th of Elul (on the Hebrew calendar which equates on the Gregorian calendar this year to 12-13 Sept 2015).  The majority of financial collapses in the US have occurred on the 29th of Elul causing many to predict that a total global financial collapse will happen, and if so could usher in the Shemitah Tribulation Period predicted by Daniel the Prophet!  Since the 12th and 13th of September 2015 are the weekend, a prediction that Monday, the 14th is the day the collapse will occur.  September 14th is also Rosh Hashanah, aka:  "Feast of Trumpets!" 

Are you ready? 

Jitters shook the stock market as a brief sell off occurred on September 25, 2014, its biggest one-day decline since July.

One Blood Moon Down, Three More to Come

The heavenly sequence of the blood moon phenomena continues. I witnessed the first of this series last Passover. The next one is going to occur on October 8th, or Sukkot, also known as the 'Feast of Tabernacles.'
(remember that the English word feast, in Leviticus 23 is from the Hebrew word, MOED and literally means "Appointments.")  God said these appointments are His -Leviticus 23:4!

Leviticus 23:4  - These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

The feasts (or appointments) of the Lord have been part of Israel's journey from Moses until now.  I forgot to mention one other word you see in the Bible in Leviticus 23 and that is 'convocation.'  That word comes from the Heb. word Mikra and literally means rehearsal...but that begs the question, rehearsal for what?  The answer came on the Passover when Jesus went to the Cross.  You see, there are SEVEN feasts the LORD calls "Mine." Four Spring feasts, three fall feasts.  Jesus was crucified on PASSOVER, beginning at 9:00 in the morning, exactly when the sacrificial lambs were being bound for sacrifice at the Temple.  A Solar eclipse occurred and an earthquake, according to the scripture. His dead body was placed in the tomb on the FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD.  He rose on the third day, fulfilling the FEAST OF THE FIRST FRUITS.  Finally, after 7 weeks of 7 days Jesus fulfilled the feast (appointment) of PENTECOST, ushering in what we call the Church age.  That leaves the three fall feasts (appointments) yet to be fulfilled.  The next one is called "THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS."  It also has a lesser known name, Feast That No Man Knows The Day Or Hour.  I will discuss that at a later date, but it does bear great significance.

There are those who attempt to debunk the blood moons and other astronomical signs the Bible predicts are connected, but they simply prove these signs to be accurate.  There are too many coincidences to ignore the glaring discoveries of Mark Biltz and Jonathan Cahn that are pointing to the end of the age and how it relates to the upcoming Tribulation and advent of Jesus Christ.

Signs in the Heavens...

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. - Psalm 19:1
  When was the last time you gazed into the sky? I frequently watch the sky. Sometimes when I go outside early in the morning to pray, I like looking at the constellations, and realize how small our little blue ball is in the grand scheme of things, and wonder at God's interest in us, so much so that He's even numbered the hairs of our heads. man made satellites pass silently through the sky and can be seen at the hours before dawn. My granddaughter and I look at the shapes of clouds and she tells me how some of them look like animals. "Grandpa, that one looks like an elephant, and that one looks like a bird" and so forth, as she discovers this new past time for herself. 
I might mention here that I've noticed for years now, that there are jets flying about, making clouds of their own that can turn a beautifully clear blue day into a cloudy covering better known as 'Chem trails,' but that as they say, is another story. 

My granddaughter was amazed when I explained to her that the stars are still in the blue sky of day, but "you just can't see them in the sun's brightness." Likewise, the Hubble Telescope has given us wonderful pictures of incomprehensible star clusters and billions of unknown galaxies where we once thought there were none. Is it any wonder that a Being so infinitely powerful and intelligent as the God of the Bible could plan from the beginning the movements of the stars and planets to signify to the world such events as the birth of His Son, or the birth of a nation? The Universe is His clock. 
 My wife and I happened to be camping in Death Valley in February of 2008 when we learned that there was going to be a total lunar eclipse on the 21st. We thought we'd go to Zabriskie Point because its terrain resembles a lunar landscape and that would be the perfect place to heighten the experience. We weren't the only ones...the little parking lot there was full. As earth's shadow crept across the surface of the moon, the landscape around us began to transform in appearance adding to the drama. Finally the moon "blushed" and took on an eerie glow as did the ghostly landscape around us. It was unforgettable. 

This most recent total lunar eclipse, (which is the first of a Tetrad of total lunar eclipses we'll experience) was slightly different, and much more significant. I set up chairs for my grand-kids on my driveway, turned my security lights off and got my binoculars out - and waited. Of course they had school the next morning, so as the night grew deeper, they had to go in and get ready for bed. So I turned on the NASA channel so they could see a live simulcast of the event. I preferred to go outside and watch. I was not disappointed, but alas, only the eldest stayed up long enough to witness the eclipse. As I watched the eclipse going full, my thoughts turned to the scriptures, their meaning and the exciting time we're privileged to experience. It was Passover and as I gazed through my binoculars, I could clearly see Mars about a hand-breadth above the moon. I remember how that many of the Ancients regarded Mars as the god of war. I thought about how Passover was the first of the four 'spring feasts or convocations of the seven God called His (Lev.23).' This blood moon was also the first of four blood moons to take place in 2014-15. Jesus fulfilled all four of the Spring feasts, leaving only three Fall feasts to be fulfilled. The first Fall "feast" is the Feast of Trumpets, (which coincidentally is also referred to as the Feast of which no man knows the day or hour." ).   This is reminiscent of Jesus' words: Mat 24:36 - "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."

That feast is marked by 100 blasts of the Shofar, a Hebrew trumpet traditionally made from the horn of a ram.  The most significant and longest trump is the 100th, calling all Jewish men to assemble as they were commanded.  In Bible college I was taught (and also subsequently taught) that the last trump was the seventh judgment trumpet of Revelation 11:15, but now I've come to regard that as incorrect. 

 It is undoubtedly (the trumpet of ) the LORD fulfilling the next convocation that Israel has been rehearsing for centuries. 
At that last trumpet blast, Jews would be in the field and would drop what they were doing and head toward the Temple.  Some non-Jewish strangers would continue working.  Jesus alluded to that in  Matthew 24:40-42 - 
 "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." 
One thing for sure, Jesus Christ really is coming soon - Watch and Pray - This September marks the end of a seven year period on the Hebrew Calendar, and the beginning of a new seven year period.  The first year of that period is known as a Shemitah Year.  On Our Gregorian Calendar it begins on September 25, 2014 to September 13, 2015.  Rabbi Jonathan Cahn spoke about it and the implications it will have on America when he was on CBN
