Workday Prayer

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: 
for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24

Workday Prayer
- Unknown?

Lord Jesus, as I enter this workplace,
I bring Your presence with me.
I speak Your peace, Your grace, and Your perfect order into the atmosphere of this office.
I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished within these walls.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts You have deposited in me.
I do not take them lightly, but commit to using them responsibly and well.
Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty on which to draw as I do my job.

Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.
Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me.
Lord, when I am burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit.

May the work that I do and the way I do it bring hope, life, and courage to all that I come in contact with today.
And, oh Lord, even in this day's most stressful moment, may I rest in You.
In the name of Jesus my savior I pray. 

As a new school year begins and jobs resume or continue
...whether at home or work place remember who is your true boss. 

Let your light so shine before men, 
that they may see your good works, 
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 

I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, 
and thy patience, and thy works; 
and the last to be more than the first.
Revelation 2:19

America’s Eclipse

And it shall come to pass in that day,
saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon,
and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

Amos 8:9

Although this Total Solar Eclipse will only be seen in North America, there are convergences of events that are far-reaching.  From the sunset in Jerusalem to the heavenly alignment of stars, planets, and constellations.

Timing of the eclipse in Salem, Oregon (first state to see the event) to the sunset in Jerusalem.
10:17 AM  PDT  *  17:16 UT  * 7:16 PM IDT
Salem - Maximum Magnitude  * Jerusalem - Sunset

I find the time – 10:20 interesting on this meme!
Same time as the eclipse in Salem, Oregon!

Watch ye therefore: 
for ye know not when the master of the house cometh,
at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Mark 13:35
Numerous times Jesus admonished his followers to “watch and pray.”

I shared previously some Jerusalem/Salem similarities in my 
“When Doves Cry” blog.

On August 9 and 10 we experienced a rare red “blood” moon due to smoke from area wildfires. This occurred 3 days after the full moon and 11 days before the eclipse that will pass over Oregon first. I shared some photos that I took during the evening and recollections of the 2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. 

For all of us who live in the path of totally, the past year has been abuzz with talk of this great “once in a lifetime” event for our city and state – and nation.  Now, as the time grows near we are more focused on this upcoming experience and are learning more about the details.

The following verse resonates as we need to wear dark glasses to see this amazing covering of the sun. With the special viewing filters you see absolutely NOTHING – TOTAL DARKNESS without the sun shining. Yet, with the bright sun one can see the orb’s image.

For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1 Corinthians 13:12

The verifiable facts that the eclipse begins in the 33rd state (Oregon) – the state flag has 33 stars - and ends precisely at the 33rd parallel (South Carolina).  A total solar eclipse traversing the entire United States hasn't happened in 3 x 33 years and even more - the eclipse occurs exactly 33 days before the Revelation 12 Sign

The Salem connections don’t stop in Oregon! There are SEVEN cities named Salem noted on the eclipse path of totality.  In addition, there is Salem Road in Makanda, Illinois (south of Carbondale, IL).

This celestial phenomenon comes at an extremely interesting time in world history. Rare conjunctions of celestial convergences of alignments in the sky add to the mystery.  

Simultaneous Convergences:
  • Physical (as shown above)
  • Ideological
  • Celestial
  • Spiritual

The eclipse cuts across the mid-section of the USA at the same time events are occurring in our nation to divide our people politically and ideologically.  The Daily Crow covers this in detail with many merging fragments.

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
Mark 3:24-25

Known as “The Great American Eclipse” it will be the most viewed eclipse in history and it has certainly carried with it the most speculation. On August 21st a 70 mile wide shadow of darkness will slice the nation in half. This should be pretty straight forward even for those of you who don’t much care for the language of metaphor. This is the first total eclipse exclusive to the United States since the nation’s inception that extends from coast to coast. 

Much has been documented about the unusual connections with this eclipse which coupled with multitude of events gains alerted foresight with biblical understanding.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Genesis 1:16

In addition to the eclipse and new moon there is a “black moon.”

August 21 Solar Eclipse - Fascinating Facts

If you are in the path of the Aug. 21st eclipse, 
you will see planets during totality!
The gem is Mercury, which is bright, but rarely seen!

Attention now is focused at the heart of the Lion of Judah and Regulus the king star.

Even the media is joining in with the wedding theme at this eclipse time.

Wedding - Samsung Galaxy S8: Eclipse

And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Matthew 25:6

The eclipse happens at the transition of Hebrew months Av and Elul (5th and 6th of the year).  From the month of “hearing” to the month of “harvest.”

Elul (6th month) begins after sighting of the new moon.

 I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine:
 Song of Solomon 6:3


The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let the one who hears say,
“Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come,
and the one who desires the water of life drink freely.
Revelation 22:17

So, 33 days before September's The Great Sign is another sign that is a possible confirming witness to the legitimacy of The Great Sign.  The eclipse occurs in conjunction with Regulus, which is a key part of the astronomical alignment on September 23, 2017 - so the eclipse will actually be drawing the eyes of the world to the exact area in the sky where the Revelation 12 Sign will occur.  

What Is The Revelation 12 Sign In 2017 Telling Us?

Red “Wildfire” Moon

And God said, Let there be lights
in the firmament of the heavens to divide the
day from the night; and let them be for signs and
for appointed times and for days and years.
Genesis 1:14

We experienced an awesome red-to-orange “blood” moon last night!!!  
I have never seen anything so brilliant as this.  Years ago in September 2015 we saw one of the blood moons of the Tetrad, but that moon was nothing like this large, close moon!  Smoke from distant wildfires is blowing into our area causing this phenomenon. The colored moon is the only good thing coming out of the fires in the forests and continual haze in our skies. I wish I would have taken a video – I was in awe and too tired!

August  9 & 10, 2017 - Moonrise to Moonset. 

Note:  This occurred 3 days after the full moon and 11 days before the eclipse that will pass over Oregon first. Interesting timing!

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained. 
Psalm 8:3

It shall be established for ever as the moon,
and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
Psalm 89:37

Moon with an orange glow from the distant wildfires on August 7, 2017.

On September 27, 2015, we did see one of the blood moons of the Tetrad that occurred simultaneously during the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).

I believe these celestial signs are warnings –
God wants to get our attention and have his people draw close to him.

“Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall ­find watching:
verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself,
and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.”
Luke 12:37

August "Blood" Moon warnings over Salem?!

Oregon is on the path of the upcoming August 21, 2017, solar eclipse.  It will be the first state in the USA to sight the eclipse as it moves from the west coast to the east coast.

Is There More To The Eclipse Than Meets The Eye?
The verifiable facts that the eclipse begins in the 33rd state (Oregon) and ends precisely at the 33rd parallel (South Carolina).  A total solar eclipse traversing the entire United States hasn't happened in 3 x 33 years and even more - the eclipse occurs exactly 33 days before the Revelation 12 Sign.
Jerusalem/Salem and the solar eclipse:

More information about the eclipse:

Psalm 136:9
The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Psalm 148:3
Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

But Christ being come an high priest of good things
to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle,
not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own
blood he entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Hebrews 9:11-12

Revelation 21:23
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
