December 2023 Events

 No longer will there be any curse. 

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be within the city, 

and His servants will worship Him.

Revelation 22:3




Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. 
For the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, 
and He also has become my salvation.”
Isaiah 12:3


Celestial Signs - Genesis 1:14, Psalm 19

December 3 & 4 mornings: Moon near the Sickle
Dec 9 - Moon & Venus

Dec 11/12 - Asteroid will pass in front of bright star Betelgeuse to produce a rare eclipse visible to millions
Betelgeuse, one of our brightest stars, will vanish from sight this week
This unusual occurrence, set to happen on Monday night, December 11, is due to an asteroid, 319 Leona, passing directly in front of the star, causing it to disappear for approximately 12 seconds.
The star is Betelgeuse, a red supergiant in the constellation Orion. The asteroid is Leona, a slowly rotating, oblong space rock in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Observers in Florida, parts of eastern Mexico, southern Europe, and northern Asia will be ideally positioned to witness this rare ‘occlusion.’ For those not in these regions, the Virtual Telescope Project in Italy will be streaming the event live from 8 PM Eastern on Monday. We have been waiting for years, now the time has come: on 12 Dec. 2023, asteroid (319) Leona will be between us and the star Betelgeuse, alpha Orionis, occulting it for a few seconds.

Dec 17 - Moon & Saturn

Dec 20-22 - The Moon is approaching Jupiter night by night

Kislev
November / December

Winter rains begin (snow in some areas) – Hanukkah / Feast of Dedication
10/4
Tibeth (Tivet)
December/January

Esther 2:16

9th Month – Kislev – Winter rains begin (snow in some areas) – Hanukkah / Feast of Dedication
10th Month – Tebeth –  Esther 2:16
       begins after the sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem
  Historical events by Hebrew date:
On Kislev 15, 168 BCE, Antiochus Epiphanes erected a statue of Zeus, but with his own face, on top of the holy altar in the Temple. Ten days later, on Kislev 25, the birthday of Zeus.
Kislev 15 = Nov 28, 2023
Kislev 25 = Dec 7/8, 2023




Kislev is the ninth month on God’s calendar. According to E.W. Bullinger, the number nine, the last of the digits, signifies the conclusion of a matter. Furthermore, as a sum of the factors of the number six, the number nine is significant of the end of man, or the summation of man’s works, and thus the number of finality or judgment.

Nov 11, 2016 - America’s dominance is over. By 2030, we'll have a handful of global powers
How America became a superpower
This culminated in the Spanish-American war in 1898, which ended with America acquiring a whole lot of different territories around the globe. America was officially a global power, one that intervened in a number of countries, made major diplomatic moves in East Asia, and played a critical role in ending World War I.
The next crucial step, though, came after World War II. The United States was the only country to emerge from the war in strong economic and military shape, and thus was in a unique position to shape the terms of the peace. The result was a global financial system, called the Bretton Woods system, aimed at coordinating the global economy and preventing another Great Depression — and the United Nations, created to preserve the postwar peace.

Cosmati Pavement - The great pavement in front of the High Altar of Westminster Abbey is a unique and remarkable object. The complexity and subtlety of the design and workmanship can be seen nowhere else on this scale.
It was laid down in 1268 by order of Henry III who had started re-building Edward the Confessor's Abbey in the new Gothic style in 1245. The workmen came from Rome, with a man called Odoricus at their head. The pavement belongs to a type of inlaid stone decoration known as Cosmati work, after one of the families of craftsmen who specialized in it and the technique is called opus sectile, 'cut work'.
