The things which God has prepared



1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man

The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”




And what has been prepared for us?

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

John 14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."



The Narrow Way ] “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.


There is much converging at this time. 
A spectacular sign will be in TONIGHT'S sky!
See link for details:

The meaning behind all these signs and symbols is rich.

To learn more of what all these convergences mean - see the following video.
A quick review of the celestial movements, and additional thoughts for this incredible watching window. Our expectation is for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah - the Alpha and Omega - the redeem (pickup) the purchased possession: His beloved. Maranatha!

Hebrews 6:19-20
This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

The Feasts of the Lord


John 7:37
 In the last day, that great day of the feast,
Jesus stood and cried, saying,
If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.




The plan of redemption, lived out through weekly and annual observances of God’s Holy Days, demonstrates the blueprint of our salvation. Understanding the Festivals that God established can deepen our walk with our Messiah – Jesus Christ - the fulfillment of the shadow represented by these observances.

Shofar Blowing - Prophetic Act

The first time our fathers heard the shofar calling out from the heaven was in the Sinai desert. All these years since then, its amazing voice has been accompanying Israel in the countries where the Jewish peoples have been scattered. Again and again for over 3,000 years God's people have been blowing the horn of a sacrificial animal around the world, thus fulfilling the commandment of God to celebrate the Feast of Trumpets - Yom T'ruah.




God – Elohim – created a cycle of rest at the very beginning.
Genesis 2:3
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work
which God created and made.

Our Creator lovingly laid out the instruction for His Holy Convocations – days that occurred in the spring and fall of year.
Leviticus 23:1-2
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
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.




This is a short overview, highlighting some of the basic knowledge of what and why God gave us these special observances.  There is much more to learn and discover about God’s festivals and we look forward to celebrating them with our very Creator in their fulfilled glory!


Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
 it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.


Jesus Christ - Yeshua Hamashiach - is our Passover Lamb! It is by his shed blood that we are saved (1 Corinthians 5:6-8).  It is important to note that we live under grace through the sacrifice of Christ. Yet these living symbols can enrich the comprehension of the finished work of Christ and deepen the understanding of future prophetic events.

This blog discusses some festival elements as well: 



John 7:37
 In the last day, that great day of the feast,

Celestial Clock


Psalm 19:1-3

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
 and the firmament sheweth his handy work.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
night unto night sheweth knowledge.


When we LOOK UP we see the clock
- God's created timepiece as presented in the sky!
We are near the midnight hour!


Luke 21:28
And when these things begin to come to pass,
then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.



This gives new meaning to the reference of MIDNIGHT -
Matthew 25:6
And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.



In addition, the celestial clock of predictable revolving constellations
gives new understanding to the names of Christ - Alpha and Omega.

Revelation 1:8
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending,
saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.


Note:  Mazzaroth (constellation) or Biblical astronomy studies the creation that God made and set in order. It is not astrology which the bible admonishes us not to follow.
Job 38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? http://biblehub.com/hebrew/4216.htm מַזָּרוֹת Definition: constellation

The heavenly dance has played out for centuries.

Hints have been recorded in God's word for our edification and discovery.
In the end time we are seeing pieces come together in a celestial performance!

Is the message, and rehearsal, that the heavens declare - easy or hard to confirm?
Does the Bible give us direction for easy interpretation of these signs?
Yes! Maranatha!

Bolt and Lightning

For as the lightning,
that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven,
shineth unto the other part under heaven;
so shall also the Son of man be in his day.



Intracloud lightning in Treasure Island, Florida.
Interesting how the lightning travels right to left (like Hebrew)
 – It looks like a monitor / heartbeat too. 
Remarkably clear view of in-cloud lightning 
as it moves horizontally across the sky in Florida!



Bolt, the quick Olympic runner from Jamaica has been in the news every day. Lightning images have gone viral along with media references to lightning and electrical charges.


One of the attention-getting headlines read:

Usain Bolt Unleashes More Lightning While Winning the 200M for ...
And Usain Bolt was all lightning Thursday night in Rio de Janeiro, winning the 200 meters for a record third time …



bolt (v.) 
from bolt (n.) in its various senses; from a crossbow arrow's quick flight comes the meaning "to spring, to make a quick start". Via the notion of runaway horses, this came to mean "to leave suddenly."  The meaning "to secure by means of a bolt" is from 1580s.
bolt (n.) 
Old English bolt "short, stout arrow with a heavy head;" also "crossbow for throwing bolts," perhaps from PIE root *bheld- "to knock, strike" (source also of Lithuanian beldu "I knock," baldas "pole for striking").

Applied since Middle English to other short metal rods (especially those with knobbed ends). From the notion of an arrow's flight comes the lightning bolt(1530s). A bolt of canvas (c. 1400) was so called for its shape. Adverbial phrase bolt upright is from late 14c.


The bolt image is repeatedly used in media – especially this past year. 

 


 

And he said unto them,
I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Why Lightning Deaths Are Up This Year

Lightning has already killed as many people in the U.S. this year as in all of 2015, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

MARTA delays fixed, rain moving east
Tracking intense lightning storms over the downtown area.

3 separate storm chasers get shot of same Tucson lightning bolt
Three separate storm chasers were out near Tucson Tuesday evening as a monsoon thunderstorm rolled through.





And all the people saw the thunderings,
and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet,
and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it,
they removed, and stood afar off.

  

Videos that include Lightning, Rapture and Electromagnetic forces, etc.








For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shineth even unto the west;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Waiting for the harvest


Do you not say that it is yet four months and the harvest comes?
Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and see the fields,
 because they are already white toward harvest!
John 4:35


Sometimes it’s hard to wait until the harvest is ready!

Our young grandson pulls on the branches of the backyard plum tree. 
He eyes the plums hanging above and desires to eat the homegrown fruit. 
He manages to get a lower hanging one and happily bites into the plum - 
although quickly says it’s sour and throws it down!

He sees there are more even higher. “Surely those plums are sweeter,” 
he says to himself.  His parents tell him he needs to wait and let the 
fruit ripen. Each day he runs to the tree and looks up hoping today will be 
the day for the ripe fruit to be picked.  His father encourages him to be 
patient - they are one day closer to the harvest.


No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful.
Later on, however, it yields a peaceful harvest of righteousness
to those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:11
