The Blue Moon Passover - What is God Saying?

Many of us are familiar with the saying, “Once in a blue moon,” which has been around for more than 400 years. It originally meant “it will never happen.” However, certain events have caused the moon to appear blue in the last 150 years. It happens when there are particles in the atmosphere from volcanic eruptions, extreme dust from droughts, or widespread forest fires. Because of this, the term has now come to mean very rarely. 

In 1988 radio stations, news anchors, and newspapers talked about the folklore associated with the expression when there was a second full moon in a month. The phrase was so catchy that restaurants, clothing stores, and  bookstores opening in the following months sported the name “blue moon.” This was the birth of the second full moon in a month being labeled a blue moon, as is fitting since they usually only occur once every 32 months. 

This year is quite special. The second blue moon is occurring two short months since the last one in January and it too  will happen on one of the Feasts of Israel. (Read about the first one CLICK HERE) To fully understand the significance, you must be aware of the difference in the Roman and Hebrew system of days. 

Two of the most significant events in the Gospel are hotly debated by skeptics who see inaccuracies in the testimonies given in the Bible. These “inaccuracies” can be explained if you understand the difference in the Hebrew and Roman calendar system. (Read about those here: 1st post, 2nd post)

Roman Calendar
Most of the world counts a day as 12 AM (midnight) to the following 12 AM (midnight). This means we think of a day as beginning in the middle of the night. 

Hebrew Calendar
God’s people count a day as ending and beginning at sunset. So dinner, which usually occurred after sunset, is the first meal of the day. 

Taking this into account, when the blue moon occurs on March 31, 2018, it will be the second half of the first day of the feast of Passover. Jesus was crucified at about 9 AM on the first day of Passover - the blue moon will rise in Florida at 8:36 AM? on that day. The fact that this event is occurring on the very day our Lord was crucified is filled with meaning! The Bible tells us the last days will be filled with signs in the Heavens. This is one of them!

What does it mean:

-- Blue is a symbol of revelation and communion with God. 
-- The Passover Feast last seven days
-- It is a time when “leaven”, symbolic of sin, is removed from God’s people.  
-- This is the 2nd blue moon on a Hebrew Feast

In the Bible, days often represent years. For the next seven years, God is asking His people to leave sin behind and seek deeper communion with Him. Jesus is calling His people to meet with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High - a deeply intimate communion with Him. How do you get to this place of communion? This blog has several stories on this topic. The Believer’s Boot Camp series (free on Amazon) is a revelation from God designed for this very purpose. 

The first blue moon occurred the feast of "Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot (Hebrewראש השנה לאילנות‎), literally means "New Year of the Trees." (Read that post, click here) The combination of the blue and super blood moon on this holiday brought a depth of meaning to what God is doing.According to the Bible, with witnesses a thing shall be confirmed. This is the second witness; communion and relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is what God desires for us in this time. There was no super blood moon, but we have something much better, it is occurring when He actually shed His blood!

Don't wait, begin the journey now! I t is time to remove the leaven from your life and grow in your relationship and communtion with God through the revelation He has brought to the Body of Christ!

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.
