June 2024 Events

 May God be gracious to us and bless us, 

and cause His face to shine upon us, Selah

Psalm 67:1

Celestial Signs - Genesis 1:14, Psalm 19

June 21 - The full moon will look unusually big and colorful. The strawberry moon is the most colorful of the year because it takes a low, shallow path across the sky. June's full moon is the very lowest full moon, indeed, "the lowest we’ve seen in years," the Old Farmer's Almanac said. Because the moon is so low, it will appear bigger than ever. This is known as the “Moon Illusion.”

The oldest tree in the world: Meet 'Methuselah,' a literal hidden gem.
According to Guinness World Records, the oldest tree species in the world are the bristlecone pines, found in the White Mountains in California - Inyo National Forest between the Sierra Nevada range in California and the Nevada border. The U.S. Forest Service keeps its exact location under wraps to protect the tree from damage or vandalism. The scientific name is “Pinus Longaeva."
The world's oldest living tree is "Methuselah." The tree's exact age is unknown, but experts believe it has been alive for close to 5,000 years, the U.S. Forest Service stated. 
One Florida southern live oak, aptly named “Big Tree,” is over 400 years old. It was struck by lightning at least three times and survived multiple hurricanes and yet remains so healthy that one Michigan non-profit is trying to clone it.

How is the number 50 related to deliverance?
Fifty also symbolizes deliverance or freedom from a burden. 
God commanded ancient Israel that every 50th year, on the Day of Atonement, 
that a Jubilee was to be declared with the sound of a trumpet (Leviticus 25).
During the Jubilee year all debts were settled in favor of the debtor 
and inheritances were returned to their rightful owners. 
Also, those who worked as slave laborers in order to repay a debt were granted their freedom 
to return home to their families and land.

June 19 devo:  God’s Delivering Power Is Yours!

Romans 6:19 - "Set free!"  I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness.

Ephesians‬ ‭6:19-20‬ ‭
“As for me, pray that when I open my mouth, I’ll get a message that confidently makes this secret plan of the gospel known.
I’m an ambassador in chains for the sake of the gospel.
Pray so that the Lord will give me the confidence to say what I have to say.”

June 19 - Louisiana has become the first state to require that the Ten Commandments be displayed in every public school classroom, the latest move from a GOP-dominated Legislature pushing a conservative agenda under a new governor. The legislation that Republican Gov. Jeff Landry signed into law on Wednesday requires a poster-sized display of the Ten Commandments in “large, easily readable font” in all public classrooms, from kindergarten to state-funded universities. “If you want to respect the rule of law, you’ve got to start from the original lawgiver, which was Moses” who got the commandments from God, Landry said.
Opponents questioned the law’s constitutionality and vowed to challenge it in court. Proponents said the measure is not solely religious, but that it has historical significance. In the language of the law, the Ten Commandments are “foundational documents of our state and national government.”

Stone v. Graham, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on November 17, 1980, ruled (5–4) that a Kentucky statute requiring school officials to post a copy of the Ten Commandments (purchased with private contributions) on a wall in every public classroom violated the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which is commonly interpreted as a separation of church and state.
Schools used to pray and have the 10 Commandments! 
U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1980 that Ten Commandments displays in public schools were unconstitutional.
The most enduring and controversial issue related to school-sponsored religious activities is classroom prayer. In Engel v. Vitale (1962), the Supreme Court held that the Establishment Clause prohibited the recitation of a school-sponsored prayer in public schools.

Full Moon - Honeymoon / Strawberry Moon
How often is the full moon on the summer solstice?
The chance of the full moon falling on the same day as summer solstice is very rare. 
However, some reports said the last time the solstice full moon happened was in 2016, and some said it last occurred in 1986 or even in 1967.
The full moon of June, also called the Strawberry Moon, will occur on June 21 at 9:08 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (0108 UTC June 22), according to the U.S. Naval Observatory. Observers in Oceania will see a nearly full moon pass in front of the star Antares, Alpha Scorpii, the brightest star in Scorpius, the Scorpion, on June 20.
In New York City, moonrise will occur at 8:49 p.m. EDT on June 21. The sun will set at 8:31 p.m. EDT on that day. 
Aug 19 - The first “supermoon” of the year will occur on August 19, 2024. August’s full moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon. This “supermoon” is unique because it’s a special seasonal blue moon and it will be the last blue moon until May 20, 2027, according to USA Today. A seasonal blue moon is the third of four full moons in a season (the time between a solstice and an equinox).

June 21 - The full moon will look unusually big and colorful. The strawberry moon is the most colorful of the year because it takes a low, shallow path across the sky. June's full moon is the very lowest full moon, indeed, "the lowest we’ve seen in years," the Old Farmer's Almanac said. Because the moon is so low, it will appear bigger than ever. This is known as the “Moon Illusion.”

On June 26, 1945, delegates from 50 countries signed the charter of the United Nations in San Francisco, creating an international government tasked with maintaining peace around the world in the wake of World War II. After the signing, President Truman delivered a speech to the delegates in which he stated, "With this Charter the world can begin to look forward to the time when all worthy human beings may be permitted to live decently as free people".
 The United Nations Is Created | Flashback | History

The cornerstones of the War Memorial Opera House and Veterans Building were laid on November 11, 1931. In April, May and June of 1945, with the world well into its sixth year of global war, the two original buildings of the San Francisco War Memorial served as the birthplace of the United Nations. Most of the plenary sessions of the Conference took place in the War Memorial Opera House, but it was on the stage of the Veterans Auditorium (now the Herbst Theatre) that President Truman and other heads of state and dignitaries signed the United Nations Charter on June 26, 1945. 

June 26, 1945 - 79th Anniversary of the signing of the Charter of the United Nations (also known as the UN Charter) of 1945 is the foundational treaty of the United Nations, an intergovernmental organization.[1] It was signed at the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in San Francisco, United States, on 26 June 1945, by 50 of the 51 original member countries (Poland, the other original member, which was not represented at the conference, signed it two months later). Domed building, SF City Hall, across the street.

It entered into force on 24 October 1945, after being ratified by the original five permanent members of the Security Council—the Republic of China (later replaced by the People's Republic of China), France, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (later replaced by the Russian Federation), the United Kingdom, and the United States—and a majority of the other signatories.
As a charter, it is a constituent treaty, and all members are bound by its articles. Furthermore, Article 103 of the Charter states that obligations to the United Nations prevail over all other treaty obligations.[1][2] Most countries in the world have now ratified the Charter.

October 7, 2023 at the Nova Music Festival - SUPERNOVA Sukkot Gathering
Dear Tribe of Nova, We are thrilled and filled with pride and excitement to announce a truly exceptional and unprecedented event that will take place for the very first time in Israel... The legendary Universo Paralello festival is set to land in our small but vibrant land! Yes, just as it sounds, the most powerful and meaningful psy trance music festival in one of the most recognized and active psy trance nations, is already making its way here. This special collaboration with a festival that represents the heart and soul of the Brazilian trance music community, is considered to be one of the largest and most respected international electronic-alternative festival throughout Latin America. The festival will be held during the celebrations of the new civil year in Praia de Pratigi, a hidden paradise located on the southern coast of Bahia, Brazil, within the mystical rainforest. The meaning of the words "Universo Paralello" is "Parallel Universe" in Portuguese, the native language of the land of Samba, from which the festival originates. The word "Supernova" refers to the explosion of a massive star, causing an immense burst of light in galactic terms.

June 26 - Nova Explosion 2024: A New Star Will Appear Soon!
It could happen any day now. This exact same process created a nova in 1866 and then not again until 1946, giving these flare-ups a roughly 80-year period. Officially named “T Coronae Borealis” or T CrB (pronounced “tee-core-bore”), the media is also calling it “Blaze Star.” Why? It will soon undergo a violent outburst and blaze in the night skies as a new star within the constellation Coronae Borealis. Don’t get “nova” confused with “supernova;” the latter happens when a star explodes and is destroyed. Rather, “nova” means “new star” in Latin. 
"After sunset, go outside, face east and look up." Weeks or even months may pass. But one night, wham-O.
Outbursts from T CrB happen every eight decades or so. The last outburst was documented in 1946. The next one is expected between now and September. “This is the one big chance you have of seeing the brightest nova of the generation,”
"Once-in-a-Generation" Event is HERE! Go outside and Look UP tonight!
When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; 
for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28
