Prophetic Signs for an Anointed Year

There are no coincidences in God. Everything the Almighty does is intentional, calculated, planned and shared with His prophets. The Biblical holidays contain the mysteries of God's blessings, times and seasons. 2014 is an Ayin (seer) year of the door where opportunities are presenting themselves to those who have spiritual eyes to see the treasures that have been hidden by darkness. Acts 2:20 tells us that the windows of heaven opened at Pentecost with a mighty rushing whirlwind that came from heaven releasing a profound sound with tongues of fire that set on the heads of the 120 (Joel 2:30–31).
 
The Hebrew year 5775 began September 24, 2014. This year the world will encounter the whirlwind that is full of revelation, signs, wonders and miracles again. Elijah was taken into heaven riding on a whirlwind when he left a double portion of his spirit for his spiritual son Elisha. Elijah left an anointing that turns the hearts of the Fathers back to restore the hearts of disobedient, rebellious children to righteousness (Mal. 4:6, Luke 1:17).
 
We are living in a time when many children live under the curse of not knowing their natural fathers. Spiritual children are used to build, provide for and are constrained from leaving to fulfill their own callings to support those who are in positions of fathers rather than being trained and released to step into their own destiny and vision. The breath of the Spirit is going to blow through a heavenly door this year. The whirlwind will propel a new and proper alignment so that the 'greater works' mysteries, power, opportunities for global awakening and mass evangelism will release a revolution of life and world changing phenomena.
 
God is opening the double doors before His anointed people. This is what the Lord said to Cyrus, his chosen king: "I took you by your right hand to help you defeat nations, to strip other kings of their power, and to open city gates that will not be closed again. I will go in front of you and make the mountains flat. I will break the city gates of bronze and cut the iron bars on the gates. I will give you the wealth that is stored in secret places. I will give you those hidden treasures then you will know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by name. I do this for my servant, Jacob" (Is. 45:1–4).
 
The earth is aligning with heaven. This is demonstrated in the seven appearances of blood moon tetrads since the time of Christ's birth. Each blood moon appeared at strategic times as God released world changing effects. The sun represents Jesus the beloved Son of God. The moon represents the church reflecting the glory and light of Jesus, the true light of the world. These will be the best of times for those who see and hear to align with God's purposes. It will be the worst of times for those who do not know how to discern the changing times and seasons.
 
Jacob received his calling and promised inheritance through a dream. He beheld a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. The Lord Himself stood above it and said, "'I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants. Your descendants will also be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.' Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, 'Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.' He was afraid and said, 'How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven'" (Gen. 28:12–17). We will see God manifest His glorious presence in the darkest places on earth.
 
Laban divined that he was blessed because of the Lord's favor on Jacob. Jacob was delivered from Laban, his father-in-law's bondage, laborious servitude and imposed poverty. An angel told Jacob in a dream to look up and see God's plan to prosper him through the outcast, despised black, spotted and speckled undesirable sheep and goats. Jacob had faithfully served and prospered Laban but there came a time when he had to separate and build his own house through the wealth God provided (Gen. 30-31). God wants to redeem the down and outcast.  
 
We live in a time of great redemption that is leading us to eternity, abundance, salvation, deliverance and the restoration of living in our original sinless state. The Holy Spirit will manifest His presence in and through the Sons of God by restoring divine health, prosperity, signs, wonders, miracles and resurrection power.
 
Jesus longs to return for a glorious bride without spot or wrinkle so we are told the bride will make herself ready in blameless holiness. (Eph. 5:27–28) Jesus is not coming back for a sin sick church or a silly immature bride. Jesus will be equally yoked with a mature glorious bride who is moving in great grace and power.
 
"There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near" (Luke 21:25–28).
 
The King of Glory wants to manifest Himself through His mature bride. "Lift up your heads, O gates, and lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! (Psalms 24:9) We are told to lift up our head to open the ancient gates so the King of Glory can come through us. Wisdom will accelerate the release of the "fear of the Lord," great faith, discernment, dreams, visions, prophecy and an outpouring of God's Spirit on all flesh. This will bring about the greatest end-time harvest the world has ever seen. We live in a time where our eyes and ears are blessed to see and hear what the prophets and righteous men of old desired to see and hear but were not living in the fullness of time to see and hear the 'greater works' (Matt. 13:16–17).
 
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven. The lunar eclipses or blood moons that are aligning themselves with the Jewish feast days are a heavenly light, sign, season or omen, a divine evidence of days and years or a beacon that foretells God's manifest presence coming through a victorious remnant. Abram looked towards the starry heavens in Gen. 15:5–6 and he believed in the Word of the Lord. It was counted unto him as righteousness.
 
God used the heavens when Joseph received his calling dream, the Sun (Jacob), the moon (Rachel), and the eleven stars (his brothers) bowed down to him (Gen. 37:9). God used the stars as a sign to announce the birth of Jesus as King when two planets aligned as a bright conjunction in the sky to lead the Wise men to Bethlehem. These events led to major changes in the world.
 
In the past, we have seen that each time the four blood moons are displayed in the heavenlies, the world changed. (April 25, 31 A.D., Passover; October 19, 31 A.D., Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles; April 14, 32 A.D., Passover; October 7, 32 A.D., the day before Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles; April 3, 33 A.D., Passover; and September 27, 33 A.D., Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles.) These blood moons are not included in the eight because the Oct. 7, 32 A.D., happened before Sukkot. There was a solar eclipse March 19, 33 A.D., weeks before the crucifixion.
 
Since the time of Jesus' birth there have been seven tetrads (or 4) blood moon eclipses. Seven is the number of God, spiritual perfection, purification and completeness. God rested from creating a perfect earth on the seventh day. He said the seventh day is a holy day of rest. The seventh month is for feast and festival days, and the seventh year was a Sabbath rest for the land. There are seven mysteries or secrets which include the mystery of the Kingdom, the blindness of Israel, the Church, the body of Christ, the first resurrection, the purpose of Satan, the purpose of God and the mystery of Babylon. The seven spirits of God are found in Rev. 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, and 5:6 and Is. 11:2. Each of the seven spirits of God is represented in the Menorah or burning lampstand before the throne of God.
 
America was discovered by Columbus during the cycle of the blood moons in 1493. Israel became a nation in 1948 and Jerusalem was back in the hands of the Jewish people in 1967.
 
162–163 A.D.—Great famine, plagues and persecution of Christians.
795–796 A.D.—Charlemagne's campaign ended Arabian invasion into Western Europe.
842–843 A.D.—Rome was taken by Islamic nations.
860–861 A.D.—The Christian Byzantine Empire defeated the Islamic armies in Turkey and stopped the eastern invasion of Europe.
1493–1494 A.D.—The Spanish Inquisitions, torture, theft of property and expulsion of Jews from a Catholic-dominated Spain started the decline of Spain's power.
1949–1950 A.D.—Israel was reborn as a nation, the Arab-Israeli War and the signing of the 1949 Armistice Agreement (Ezekiel 36:24, 28).
1967–1968 A.D.—Israel's Six Day War where they took back Jerusalem from its 70 A.D. capture. Israel regained control of the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank and the Golan Heights.
2014– 2015—New release of resurrection power, signs, wonders and miracles, beginning of the messianic era, Latter Rain outpouring, transference of wealth for mass evangelism.
 
The Head of the New Year began September 24, 2014, on Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets, indicating the beginning of a time of favor and a year of rest (Shemitah) coming on the earth which will end September 23, 2015, at Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which releases debt cancellation with a celebration of Jubilee and restoration. The blood moon on Passover 2015 will begin on Friday night, April 3, the same date Jesus was crucified in 33 A.D.
 
We are now half way between the eighth tetrad of (4) blood moons. Eight is the Hebrew number that means to make or cover with fat, to super abound in strength, fertility and abundance. Eight means resurrection. It is above perfection and starts a new cycle or beginning of the messianic era where great blessings both physical and financially will come from the heavenly realms to impact and change the earth. Eight signifies man's ability to transcend limits of physical existence. 2015 is the eighth tetrad, new beginning of resurrection power being released and demonstrated. April 14, 2015, will be the third blood moon during Passover. September 28, 2015, during Sukkot or Feast of Tabernacles the fourth blood moon will be seen in Israel. There will also be a solar eclipse March 20, 2015, when the moon passes between the sun and earth blocking the suns light, between the second and third blood moons. New alignments and the transference of wealth in souls and riches are strategic during these seasons.
 
God establishes everything by a witness of two. "'Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,' says the Lord of hosts. 'But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap. He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in righteousness. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years'" (Mal. 3:1–4).
 
"'From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,' says the Lord of hosts. 'But you say, "How shall we return?" Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, "How have we robbed You?" In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you!'" (Mal. 3:7–9)
 
"'Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,' says the Lord of hosts, 'if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,' says the Lord of hosts. 'All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,' says the Lord of hosts" (Mal. 3:10–12).
 
"Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, and the Lord gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and who esteem His name. 'They will be Mine,' says the Lord of hosts, 'on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.' So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him (Mal. 3:16–18).
 
"'For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,' says the Lord of hosts, 'so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day which I am preparing,' says the Lord of hosts. 'Remember the law of Moses My servant, even the statutes and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel. Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse'" (Mal. 4:1–6).
 
It is time for the church to arise and shine with revelation knowledge for the true light has come. Dan. 2:20–23 says, "Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him. It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding. It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, for You have given me wisdom and power; even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, for You have made known to us the king's matter."
 
Now is the time to proclaim the great things God is doing in the heavens and on the earth. "It has seemed good to me to declare the signs and wonders which the Most High God has done for me. How great are His signs and how mighty are His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and His dominion is from generation to generation" (Dan. 4:2–3).
