A Dream from 2007

 

I had this dream at the end of 2007.  I am sharing it now at the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  With no embellishment, nor attempt to “interpret” it, I will simply leave it to the Lord to use this however He intends:

There was a village by the sea.  The sky was dark and cloudy and the sea was

stormy and rough. The waves of the sea beat upon the stone walls that separated the village from the waters.

Out of this wild sea strange beasts started to emerge.  They were huge and black with bodies like hippos and faces like wild pigs.  They had big sharp teeth.  They poured forth from the frothing ocean, up the beach and into the village.  Their rampage through the village was terrifying.  They destroyed everything in their path.  Havoc, destruction and fear ensued. 

After they had spent some time wreaking havoc I was shocked to see that some of the villagers, who had previously been so scared of the beasts, seemed to have forgotten their terror as they began welcoming and taking the baby beasts into their own homes as pets.

I couldn’t comprehend this development and wondered how they could be so short-sighted not to realize that soon these babies would also grow to be the full-sized beasts that had rampaged their village, and would wreak their own havoc!

I then looked up into the dark sky and it was so black.  More black than anything I had ever seen.

Suddenly as I looked at the sky, light pierced through the blackness.  More and more light pierced through until I saw the form of a Man on top of a white cloud, surrounded by bright light breaking through the darkness.  I knew it was Jesus returning and I was so happy.

End of dream

The Moon Turned to Blood…

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,

I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:……
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

(Acts 2:17-20)

Could we be on the brink of seeing this verse of scripture fulfilled?

Next year on 15th of April the first in a series of four full lunar eclipses will occur.  A full lunar eclipse creates a “Blood Moon” as the earth’s shadow passes over the surface of the moon, rendering the moon a deep blood-red colour.  This is a rare occurrence.

What’s more interesting is that it falls on Passover next year.  The 15th of April 2014 is Passover.

Yet more rare is the fact that the lunar eclipse on Passover will be followed by another three full lunar eclipses, in the beginning of what’s known as a “tetrad” – a sequence of four consecutive full lunar eclipses.

And guess what else?   The following three lunar eclipses, or Blood Moons, will also fall right on Biblical feasts!

Here are their dates:

15 April 2014 – first Blood Moon on first day of Passover

8 October 2014 – second Blood Moon on the eve of Tabernacles

(20 March 2015 – Total Solar Eclipse on Nisan 1, the Religious New Year)

4 April 2015 – third Blood Moon on first day of Passover

28 September 2015 – fourth Blood Moon on the first day of Tabernacles

Could it be that God is trying to get our attention??

After all He did say in Genesis 1:14:

“..Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens…for signs and for seasons…”

The rabbis say that signs in the moon are for Israel.  In May 2018 Israel will celebrate her 70th birthday anniversary – could this be connected?  We know that 70 years seems to have significance attached to it in relation to Israel – ie, the 70 years captivity in Babylon; also it was 70 years after Jesus Christ was born that Israel’s temple was destroyed.

The rabbis also say that signs in the sun are for the nations, or Gentiles.  On 20th March 2015 there will be a total solar eclipse.  This is when the sun goes dark …”the sun shall be turned into darkness…”

Over the last 500 years there have been three lunar tetrads falling exactly on Biblical Feast days.  These signs in the moon were all preceded or followed by major events for the Jews or Israel.

Derek Prince says in “Appointment in Jerusalem”:        “On May 14, 1948, the modern State of Israel was born.  Of the countless prophecies in Scripture that refer to the close of the present age, all without exception assume one thing: the presence of Israel as a nation in their own land.  Until Israel was thus restored as a nation, none of these prophecies could be fulfilled.  Now the way is open for the fulfillment of them all.”

We are living in very interesting times.

“Therefore…what sort of people ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be destroyed by burning, and the elements will melt with intense heat!  But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:11, 12
