There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars

Planets in late June, early July, 2016. If you're in the S. Hemisphere, turn this chart upside down and face north!

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.  At that time they will see the Son of Man 
coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 
When these things begin to take place, 
stand up and lift up your heads
because your redemption is drawing near.”
Luke 21:25-28

Judah is a lion’s whelp;
From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He bows down, he lies down as a lion;
And as a lion, who shall rouse him?

The scepter shall not depart from Judah,

Nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
Until Shiloh comes;
And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

Genesis 49:9-10

I see Him, but not now;
I behold Him, but not near;
A Star shall come out of Jacob;
A Scepter shall rise out of Israel.  
Numbers 24:17

For the Lord is our Judge,
The Lord is our Lawgiver,
The Lord is our King;
He will save us.  Isaiah 33:22

When Christ told us to look up, and lift up our heads - what are we supposed to see? 
Will it be a visible sign?

Exodus II When the Bride Goes to the King's House

Metamorphosis - Anticipating the Change

We were in the forest this weekend and saw many caterpillars. It reminded me of the process we are spiritually undergoing as we wait for our bodies to be changed, fully redeemed, and free!

For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.  And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,  groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.  Romans 8:22-23

Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.

1 Corinthians 15:52

God's Rainbow - a sign of faithfulness and promise

I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Genesis 9:13

God created this beautiful covenant sign - 
a symbol of God's love, faithfulness and promise.

This used to be a sign of happiness and joy that was displayed in art, jewelry and even clothing.

Now, this sign has been hi-jacked/stolen to represent a lifestyle that goes against the natural creation and God's instructions.  It has been reduced to a flag for a rebellious movement.  During "Pride" month we have been bombarded by the unruly use of these beautiful colors.

We know God is the maker of all things good and he will restore and rectify what is righteous. 

And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow 
that had the appearance of an emerald. 

Revelation 4:3

June Bride - Awaiting the Ultimate Wedding

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! 
For the wedding of the Lamb has come, 
and his bride has made herself ready. 
Fine linen bright and clean was given to her to wear. 
Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the Saints.”
Revelation 19:7-8
