HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

5:6:57

So, let us pursue this theme some more! Have there been any SIGNificant astronomical events in recent years or months that “APPEAR” to look like portends or warning signs from God? And will there be any in the coming months ahead?

I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.  And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’… Acts 2:19-22 Berean Study Bible

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday, thanks to all who gave cards and gifts. Anyhoo, sitting with all the family in the lounge celebrating and the sun was full on through the patio doors. It was brighter than ever! Have you noticed that? Have you noticed that it is getting lighter much too early and getting darker much later than normal! Last night it was only dusk at 10:40! What on earth or in the heavens is going on? Are there signs up there we should be noticing? I’ll be pursuing this over the next few weeks and months, but here’s a taster.

This is often interpreted as ‘look up joyfully as your redemption is near!’ But it can also read look up! Notice the signs! They are pointing to an event horizon! GO FISH! CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELVES LIKE GOOD BEREAN’S!

So, go check this one out. Now, I’m not saying it’s true or not. I’m saying ‘check it out!’ Ask yourself WHY is there more day light than normal? WHY is the sun brighter than ever? WHY is it getting hotter? WHY are so many folk looking into this when most folk would usually be going about their business as in the days of Noah and lot? GO FISH!

HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

So, let us pursue this theme some more! Have there been any SIGNificant astronomical events in recent years or months that “APPEAR” to look like portends or warning signs from God? And will there be any in the coming months ahead?

I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.  And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’… Acts 2:19-22 Berean Study Bible

Okay, let’s start with this: ALL of the signs which we’ve witnessed in the past few years, especially the signs in the heavens of the 4 Blood Moons falling directly ON Biblical Feast Days and IN the Super Shemitah and Jubilee Years, I believe signal Christ’s RETURN to rapture us before the 7-Year Tribulation. [his words NOT MINE!] That is why seeing the Holy “777” in this coming Year, and a nearly 1,000 year old Prophecy of the Messiah’s Coming connected to it, I’m more watchful than ever before. Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel was a top Talmudic scholar in Germany. Just before he died, in the year 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the Holy City of Jerusalem for 8 Jubilees. 8 x 50 = 400 years. 

“The Turks indeed took control of Jerusalem 300 years after his death. This was in 1517, and his prophecy then came to fully pass, as the Ottoman Turks then lost Jerusalem in 1917. Exactly 400 years later! During WWI, British General Edmund Allenby walked into Jerusalem, on Hanukkah 1917, without firing a shot. The Rabbi went on to prophesy that after the 8 Jubilees, the 9th Jubilee would have Jerusalem being “a no-man’s-land”. The 9th Jubilee was from 1917 to 1967, and he was “right on” again with his prophecy. The Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.

This is very interesting: Allenby decided to overfly Jerusalem, dropping leaflets which demanded their surrender. What he did not know was that the Turks believed in an old prophesy that they would never lose the Holy City until “a man of Allah came to deliver it. Allenby’s signature on the leaflet was mistaken for “Allah Beh (man of Allah). The Turks surrendered without firing a shot…an incredible fulfillment of Biblical prophesy which put Israel under British mandate. This mandate, called the Balfour Declaration, called for a Jewish homeland and set the foundation for modern Israel. Jerusalem had been under Muslim control during centuries, with both Christians, Jews and Muslims living together as one community under Muslim ruling and majority”. [Wikepedia]

Even after Israel’s war of Independence in 1948-49, Jerusalem was divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the Eastern part of the City and Israel controlling the Western part of the City. That strip of land was considered and called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians. The Rabbi then stated that in the 10th Jubilee “Jerusalem would be controlled by Israel”, which it has been ever since the Six Day War of 1967! His Prophecy continued, that “THEN” the Messianic end times will begin. The “THEN” refers to the end of the 10th Jubilee, and the beginning of the new, which would be 2017, or, the Year 5777! If this Rabbi was 100% accurate on everything else, we should take his Messiah Prophecy very seriously. [Bible signs in the headlines].

Also of interest. The number 5 symbolizes God’s grace, goodness and favour toward humans! So 5777 could be interpreted as 777 is 3 x God’s number! Father [7] Jesus [7] Holy Spirit] [7]! 7 means perfection or complete, or completion! So, my thoughts are that [it could mean] the period of God’s grace [5] is completed and the Father Son and Holy Spirit affirm this! [But, that’s only what I think!!!!!]

YOU GO FISH! DON’T TAKE WHAT WE ARE SAYING AS GOSPEL TRUTH! THESE ARE THINGS I AM RESEARCHING! IT’S UP TO YOU TO CHECK IT OUT TOO LIKE GOOD BEREAN’S WOULD!

More of this next time! Heavenly father God, Abba, Yeshua, Ruach, Holy Spirit Sirs. Give me insights and Revelation into what is happening in the skies and the earth. There are shaking’s and signs and signals in the sky and on the earth too. Help us not to poo poo this but to check it all out especially in line with the Bible. Thank you Lord amen.

HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW.

Image result for significant images

My veg garden today. Well cultivated soil!!

The most important factor in horticulture and gardening is basic preparation! It doesn’t matter how good you are as a gardener and how good a quality the Seed is, if the Soil isn’t right then the Sower and the Seed are wasting their time! Jesus said “A farmer went out to plant his seed”. [Luke 8:5] He spoke nothing here of plowing, fertilizing and harrowing! That was a given! Some of the soil was already prepared! The parable of the sower is all about the state of the soil and the results thereof! Likewise in the spiritual, the state of our heart’s is imperative to fruitfulness! Ever notice how easy it is to grow a wild unkempt garden? You simply do nothing! Now cultivate a garden and it takes blood, sweat, tears, time and financial investment not to mention planning, timing, feeding, watering, nurturing etc, etc, etc. So, it is no different with the ‘soil condition’ in heart of the human soul. Neglect that heart garden and it will grow wild, but cultivate it and it’ll be bloomin luverly. More of this next time.

So, I want to continue with the signs in the sky theme. If God wanted to get our attention and to tell us something important [and remember, the majority wont read the Bible!] Even many Christians don’t and even less the book of Revelation! How would or could He have got our attention? Well, maybe He could send us a ‘natural’ message, or show us a  SIGN in the heavens above us? Listen to this: God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night. They will mark events, sacred seasons, days, and years. Genesis 1:14

So, my thinking is ‘has God done this before?’ Well, we know that the wise men saw a star  or bright light in the night skies and it lead them to the birth place of Jesus in Bethlehem, though by then Jesus was possibly 18 months to 2 years old!

Image result for Did the star of Bethlehem  9 11 3 BC picsIt seems to be a distinct possibility that  Jesus was conceived on Hanukkah [late December] then was born 9 months later in late September perhaps on Rosh Hashana [Jewish new year] or on Yom Kippur [the day of atonement]? But hey, I wasn’t there. So, go fish for yourself and join the dots [or the suns, stars and planets!]

“Star Of Bethlehem” Visible on June 30th for the First Time in 2,000 Years. On June 30th, Jupiter and Venus merged into what is known as a super-star.

Venus Jupiter Double Star

Possibly something like this occurred around the birth of Jesus?! And again, please, this is not astrology! God gave us the signs in the skies to follow, not some horoscope peddler! However, as I say, pure speculation! There’s tons of stuff out there, check some of it out. It too is part of the cultivation of our heart’s garden, not just going to Church!!!

So, I want to continue with this theme but from a different tack! SIGNificant. Note the  SIGN  in SIGNificant! So, here’s a thought! If God wanted to get our attention to tell us something [and remember, the majority wont read the Bible! Even many Christians and even less the book of Revelation! How would or could He get our attention? Well, maybe He could send us a ‘natural’ message, or show us a  SIGN? Listen to this: God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night. They will mark events, sacred seasons, days, and years. Genesis 1:14

Image result for Genesis 1:14 pics

Jesus Christ and the apostle John describe terrifying supernatural signs in the sun, moon and stars before and during the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord. Why will God send these signs in the end times? Is it possible that the Almighty one is ALREADY trying to get our attention? Jesus said Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near. Luke 21:28 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) This is very often interpreted as look up, cheer up, be positive, and to a degree it’s a correct interpretation! However, it can also mean to ‘look up, or keep looking upwards, skywards! Is it possible that Jesus not only wanted us to keep an upward positive outlook when these awful things begin to or continue to happen, but also to ‘look up, or keep up the upward look also!’ Look into the sky, because the SUN, MOON and STARS are not just to mark the days and seasons, but they also act as signs and portends of things to come!

With that in mind, look at this chart below [FIG 1] which WILL occur on the 23rd of September this year and compare it to Revelation 12:1-2! I’ll leave you to chew on it for a while!

 

[FIG 1]

And a great sign (wonder)—[warning of future events of ominous significance] appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and with a crown-like garland (tiara) of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and she cried out in her birth pangs, in the anguish of her delivery.Revelation 12:1-2 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

I was thinking about this word some time ago and how I wanted to be more significant [TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE] than to be successful! Success is ok, but generally you leave with it a material legacy [behind]! But if you can be significant that’s a whole different cookie. You can leave behind a whole set of positive life-changing [chains] of events and so much more, and reap rewards in the Kingdom to come!] To be significant is ‘to make a practical, psychological, physiological soul and spiritual difference, and just about everything else difference’. Just go and ponder the difference you can make!

Image result for significant images

So, to conclude this personal testimony. Less than 3 months after watching the movie [Star trek Generations] and crying out to God, ‘help me make a difference’ I went to spring harvest and in one of the meetings a guy named Phil Wall challenged us. He was involved with [aids] orphaned children in Africa who through their parents had contracted aids and when the parents died the children were sent to his orphanage to die in dignity. The challenge was called the 10/10 challenge!

So as everyone entered the arena, we were given an envelope in which was the blurb and a £10 note. The challenge was to basically take the £10 and multiply it by 10 or multiples thereof! Or, don’t take the challenge and leave the money in the envelope and give it back! ‘YOUR CHOICE!’ Well I immediately thought of the film 3 months earlier! I could make a difference! I could be significant! So, when the meeting ended I thought “what can I do?” Phil had used the parable of the talents to hit home his point, so as it was spring and as I am a gardener, I got home, used the £10 to buy some plants [some pansies and violas] and I already had a few nice pots. So, I made the pots up and sold them and made £30! So then I bought more plants and pots, sold them and got to the £100 mark. Here I could have just sent that off, but I had a few songs I had composed so I thought ‘I know, I’ll make a CD and sell them and see if I can increase this amount even more!’ So I contacted my mate  who had a home studio and he agreed and we did the CD and then as well as sell them, I contacted a couple of Churches to do concerts, to raise the awareness of the orphanage, sing the songs, preach a word and sell the CDs.

So I did that and they also took up offerings and so by the January of the next year, exactly 9 months [gestation period] I had raised £1,000! I had multiplied the £10 TEN TIMES!’ Just by using 2 of my talents. God is so awesome! And though I didn’t immediately go from the  pit to the mountain top, yet over the past 20 years I have stayed on track and been a bit more fruitful. So, here’s a challenge. Go back to my first movie clip in the film Star Trek Generations and as Picard places the captains badge on the stone monument I thought of a great epitaph for Kirk!

CAPTAIN JAMES T KIRK SERVED THE PURPOSES OF THE FEDERATION FOR HIS OWN AND THE NEXT GENERATION THEN DIED.

Image result for Captain Kirks grave/monument on the mountain in the generations film pics

Does this phrase remind you of anything?

After David had done the will of God in his own generation, he died. Acts 13:36 [New Living Translation]

That’s what I want it to be for myself. That I serve the purposes of God for my generation and the next and the next, before I cease to live or am gloriously raptured!

PRAYER: God my Father, I thank you that I can be significant, I thank you that I can make a difference and I choose with your help ‘to’ make a difference. Help me to cultivate the garden of my heart so that I may be more fruitful to your glory. Lord help me to SIGN IF I CAN’T! If I can’t get the job done, help me to SIGN a prayer requisition from heaven’s store house and receive what I need from you, because IF I CAN’T I know you surely can! Amen.

To be significant is ‘to make a practical, psychological, physiological soul and spirit difference, and just about everything else difference. Just go and ponder the difference you can make!

I was thinking about the word ‘SIGNIFICANT’ so I checked it out: ‘Sufficiently great or important to be worthy of attention; noteworthy. [syn] notable, noteworthy, worthy of attention, remarkable, outstanding, important, of importance, of consequence, consequential; As I pondered this Holy Spirit said “look at the syllables in the word!’ So I did and noted there were 4! ‘SIGN’ ‘IF’ ‘I’ CAN’T!’ WOW! Then I thought ‘WOW’ backwards which spells ‘WOW’ of course! 😀

So, I began to think about this about 20 odd years ago after my divorce and break down. I was deep in depression, had to leave the ministry and go back into construction and it was a real personal battle in which I felt very useless, especially as a christian! I stayed faithful to God as best I could but He felt very distant [guess who moved away!?] Nevertheless, I knew there was more to life than this pit of despair I was in and so I began to call out to the Lord to restore me and revive me. This was about the Christmas time. In the January I decided to dig out my Star trek DVD which I hadn’t watched for ages called Generations!’ It was about the 2 captains [Kirk and Picard working together, great film] I was captivated by this one scene [FIG 1] Picard asks Kirk to return with him from the Nexus to defeat the evil Dr Soren. Watch the clip and you’ll see what I mean. I sensed Holy Spirit at this point saying ‘come back [to me] and make a difference again!’ That was like a seed being sown! 3 months later that seed germinated and 9 months from that I saw a harvest [literally from a ‘Spring’ Harvest!] Want to know more? Watch next time.

[FIG 1]

What do you see?
