End of American Dream
1 John 2:18; Genesis 6:5; Matthew 24:9-14; Romans 1:29
6-30-20, Michael Synder* -- Turmoil and mayhem in the USA includes lawlessness and virus lockdown. Reportedly law enforcement authorities all over the USA are bracing for more rioting [2 Thess 2:7] as liberal leftist America hating anarchists are planning more violence to make July 4th 2020 one of the biggest protest days so far. Traditionally in America, INDEPENDENCE DAY is greatly celebrated, but this year two protests are planned near the White House : occupying 'The Ellipse' and “million man march” will be in front of the White House ending at the U.S. Capitol.
Thus far the Covid virus scare has been successfully locking down America causing untold misery health wise and on the economy. The plan to continue and increase the destruction needs to find ways to make it sound a lot more scary than it really is [98% of victims recover]. Over the past couple of weeks we're being told that this new wave of virus is “10 times more infectious” than it was when it first started spreading in China and many people have really been freaking out as the number of confirmed cases have come forth.
Although the remaining months of 2020 will be chaotic, the truth is that things are going to get progressively worse:
- Three nuclear nations China, Pakistan and India have been shooting each other over a disputed border region
- North Korea just blew up “a joint liaison office” that it had used for talks with the South Korean government
- Turkey is warning Israel of grave consequences if the Jewish state proceeds with a plan to annex portions of Judea and Samaria [aka West Bank]
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:7; Daniel 9:5, 7

Jews Worldwide Now Moving to Israel in Unprecedented Droves as Prophesied in Bible Old Testament Book of Jeremiah
The Lord said: "At the same time I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people. The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them and make them rejoice from their sorrow."
Jeremiah 31:1-2; Genesis 17:7, 19; Hosea 1:10
6-18-20, Breaking Israel News -- Spokesman for the Jewish community of Hebron Rabbbi Yishai Fleisher released an “invitation” for Jews worldwide to move back to Israel hinting that the comfort they enjoyed in America could be coming to an end.
The latest forecast from Jerusalem says that the Jewish state of Israel is expecting 90,000 Jews from the diaspora to emigrate to Israel by the end of 2021. The process of Jewish people worldwide naturalizing in Israel is called ‘Aliyah’. According to Jewish tradition, when Rachel's father Laban deceived Jacob giving her older sister Leah in marriage in her stead, Rachel revealed to Leah a secret sign she had made with Jacob in order to spare Leah from embarrassment. Rachel had unparalleled selflessness and love for her sister, it is Rachel’s prayers, tears and cries for compassion to her children that are heard by God more than any other biblical figure. God promises Rachel that those tears are not for naught, but rather “There is a reward for your labor” and “your children shall return to their country.” (Jeremiah 31:16)
Josh Wander, founder of the Bring them Home organization which educates Jews on the spiritual importance of making Aliyah said: “With the combination of corona, financial instability, widespread unrest and antisemitism, Jews are again shaken to their core for the first time and are looking for alternative places to live.
There are those out there who say that ‘this too shall pass’ [Rev 21:10] and I constantly remind them that during the plagues in Egypt, the goal of the plagues was to send a message to the Egyptians which unfortunately – they didn’t receive well. It’s possible that the riots will die down and they’ll fix the economy (although I don’t see that happening). But even if that does happen, the divine message for people to return is there.”
"There is hope for your future [Israel] —declares Hashem [God]:
Your children shall return to their country."
Jeremiah 31:13 (The Israel Bible™)
God's covenant for the Jewish homeland was with Abraham and his wife, Sarah:
Genesis 17:15-19, 22:1-2
Sunday, June 21, 2020: Rare Ring of Fire Eclipse from Book of Joshua to Appear Over Israel
"the sun stood still & the moon stayed until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies [the Amorites]. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven & hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man [Joshua]: for the LORD fought for Israel."
History: On August 21, 2017 the complete solar eclipse transversed the continental United States many believe it ushered in the most devastating hurricane season in US history. Eclipse of the Sun is considered a bad omen.
Sunday, June 21, 2020, 7:26 to 9:26 am in Israel
Annular Solar Eclipse Will Occur
6-16-20, Breaking Israel News -- A rare annular solar eclipse will appear in the heavens over Israel on Sunday, June 21, 2020. According to experts, this type of eclipse described as a “ring of fire” was responsible for Israel's victory under Joshua against the Amorites and the miraculous ‘stopping of the sun’ during battle exactly 3,227 years ago.
The eclipse will be visible in appx 37 mile wide path traversing Israel, Africa, Pakistan, India and China. It will be visible in Israel for two hours from 7:26 AM to 9:26 AM local time, reaching its peak one hour later about 8:26 AM and disappear at 9:26 AM. The sun will be 99% obscured by the moon, making the sun’s corona appear as a "ring of fire" [Zechariah 2:5] around the dark circle of the moon.
In its discussion of eclipses, the Hebrew Talmud that is commentative and interpretative writings that hold a place in the Jewish religious tradition (Sukkot 29a) specifically described solar eclipses as being a bad omen for the nations who base their calendars on the solar cycle. “When Israel does the will of the place (God), they have nothing to fear from all of this,” citing the Prophet Jeremiah as a source. [Jeremiah 23:3; Zechariah 1:12, 16] Thus said Hashem [God]: Do not learn to go the way of the nations, And do not be dismayed by portents in the sky; Let the nations be dismayed by them! Jeremiah 10:2
Researchers Attribute the Bible Account of the Sun Stopping for Joshua to an Annular Eclipse: In a paper published in the scientific Journal Astronomy and Geophysics in 2017, researchers from England’s Cambridge University confirmed a theory first suggested by Israel's Ben Gurion University researchers: that Joshua’s miraculous ‘stopping of the sun’ during a battle to allow the Israelites more time to defeat their enemies was actually an annular solar eclipse.
They even pinpointed the exact date – the afternoon of October 30, precisely 3,224 years ago when Joshua led the Israelites into battle with the armies of five kings in order to help the besieged Gibeonites, with whom they had signed a peace pact. In the battle as the Israelites began to gain the upper hand, Joshua prayed for the sun and the moon to stand still in order to complete the defeat. His prayers were answered. Joshua 10:13 -->
<-- The Cambridge researchers understood this passage as an important historical account: “Modern English translations, which follow the King James translation of 1611 Bible, usually interpret this text to mean that the sun and moon stopped moving, but going back to the original Hebrew text, we determined that an alternative meaning could be that the sun and moon just stopped doing what they normally do: they stopped shining. In this context, the Hebrew words could be referring to a solar eclipse, when the moon passes between the earth and the sun and the sun appears to stop shining.”
He added that the interpretation was supported by the fact that the Hebrew word meaning ‘stand still’ shares a root with a Babylonian word describing eclipses found in ancient astronomical texts.
The Ben Gurion study based its conclusion on how it was even described in the Book of Joshua as being an annular eclipse because the Bible specifies that the moon was also involved. [As described above, an annular eclipse occurs when the moon passes in between the sun and the earth.] They interpreted the word “dom,” which only occurs one other time in the Bible (Psalms 37:7), not as “stand still,” which is how it is traditionally read, but to mean “become dark.”
Their research revealed that there was only one total solar eclipse that occurred in the region between the years 1500-1000 BC, when the Israelites are believed to have entered the land.
The eclipse allowed them to date the battle precisely to 4:28 p.m. on October 30, 1207 BC.
With the help of the Merneptah Stele, an Egyptian artifact which independently confirms the Israelites’ presence in Canaan, historians have dated Joshua’s entry into the land to between 1500 and 1050 BC. Using complex calculations, the researchers determined that the only annular eclipse visible from the Canaan during that period took place in October of 1207 BC. The path of this eclipse passed directly over Canaan.

I STILL REMEMBER ISRAEL’S Six Day War of 1967
God said, "I will bless them that bless thee [Israel] and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
6-5-20, * -- I am an old man; my once brown hair has turned white, my once keen eyesight is now very dim and my once good hearing is now slowly becoming less and less good. However, the Lord has graciously retained for me my intellect and a keen memory. I remember well that on May 14, 1948 when – once again - the Jewish state of Israel became a nation. And on this particular date, June 5, 2020 I remember Israel’s ‘Six Day War’  June 5, 1967 to June 10, 1967.
The drums of war in the Middle East had been beating since the Suez Canal crisis  in 1956. The ruler of Egypt, Gamal Nasser made no secret of his extreme hatred for Israel and the Jewish people; he publicly stated over and over that it was his intention to destroy them. So in 1967 he succeeded in assembling a military coalition of Muslim nations to eradicate Israel - the armies were: Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq & Lebanon. 
Nasser was an ignorant arrogant man; while the Muslim armies assembled on the eastern and southern borders of Israel, he proclaimed [maybe God's strong delusion? 2 Thess 2:11-12] that on June 6, 1967 he would launch the coalition attack against Israel. However, Israel wasn’t sitting around waiting for their attack; so on June 5, 1967 before daylight at 5:30 am Israel’s airplanes struck first. They bombed the Egyptian military air base destroying all but one of Egypt's planes. Simultaneously, Israel's army invaded both Jordan and Syria. In short order the Jewish state of Israel won every battle causing the coalition forces to be in full retreat.
The enemies' tanks had to - in single file - retreat through the only passage from Egypt to Israel - in 1967 the very narrow ‘Mitla Pass.’  Surviving Egyptian tank drivers adamantly stated that as they approached the pass a gigantic figure of MOSES was standing in the sky above the pass directing the Israeli planes to bomb and strafe the tanks. [Reference needed] When the tank drivers saw what was happening many of them abandoned their tanks running off into the desert screaming and pleading to their false god "Allah" for mercy. How did those heathen Egyptians know that it was Moses? It must have been impressed upon their minds by the true God of Israel.
Today is June 5, 2020 the 53rd anniversary of the beginning of that Six Day War; it's the day that commemorates the beginning of that great victory God gave to His chosen people. Perhaps (?) before these next six days are completed, the Lord God may likewise call resurrecting and rapturing His born again [John 3:3, 7] believers in Christ to Himself. Any day is the correct day for the Lord's call ...
“The Lord’s name shall endure forever: His name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in Him: all nations shall call Him blessed. Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who only doeth wondrous things."

Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
5-14-1948, ADL.org -- Following the defeat of the Ottoman [Islamic] Empire in World War I, the British assumed control of Palestine. In November 1917, the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, announcing its intention to facilitate the "establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."
In 1922, the League of Nations [since 1942 "United Nations"] granted Britain a mandate over Palestine facilitating Jewish immigration and encouraging Jewish settlement on the land.
In 1936 the Arabs [Muslims] were opposed to the Jewish people returning back to their historical homeland and stepped up their attacks against the Jews. Following an increase in Arab attacks, the British appointed a royal commission to investigate the Palestine situation. The Peel Commission recommended the partition of the country between Arabs and Jews. The Arabs rejected it while the Jews accepted the principle of partition.
At the end of World War II, in 1945, the British persisted in their immigration restrictions and Jewish survivors of the Holocaust were violently turned away from their homeland while Jews continued to be smuggled in. The British concluded that they could no longer manage Palestine and handed the issue over to the United Nations.
On November 29, 1947, after much debate and discussion, the UN recommended the partition of Palestine into two states one Jewish and one Arab. The Jews accepted the UN resolution while the Arabs rejected it. [...] The British mandate over Palestine officially terminated at midnight, May 14, 1948.
Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion proclaimed the re-creation of the State of Israel. On May 15, 1948 the USA, under Democrat Pres Truman, recognized the State of Israel and soon after also the Soviet Union.
5-13-20, ForeignPolicy.com -- U.S. Sec of State Mike Pompeo in Israel ... he said the visit was to discuss President Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan face-to-face. “I want to bring them [Netanyahu and Gantz] up to speed on the progress we think we are making on President Trump’s Vision for Peace.” The most pressing issue affecting that peace plan is the impending annexation of the West Bank, which could be up for a vote in Israel’s Knesset as soon as July 1, 2020. Critics say the trip is little more than a chance to bestow the United States’ blessing on such a move.
THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONGS TO THE HEBREWS who entered the holy land of Israel in the year 1406 BC [before Christ]
In terms of our current and modern dating system, the year that Joshua and the Hebrew nation cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan was 1406 BC.
Also, that year would be the first Jubilee year have occurred. [Leviticus 25:1-4,8,9]
From The Pattern of Prophecy: We know this date from a key chronological marker recorded in the book of 1 Kings 6:1. The year Solomon began to build the Jewish Temple is given both in terms of the exodus from Egypt as well as the year of Solomon’s reign.

In 1988 the Muslim from Egypt, Yassar Arafat, Declared Independence wanting the land of the Jews ISRAEL
On November 15, 1988 in the Algerian capital of Algiers, the Muslim from Egypt Yassar Arafat declared - at a meeting of the Palestinian National Council [ the Palestinian parliament in exile]:
“In the name of God and in the name of the Palestinian Arab people, the National Council declares the creation of the State of Palestine on our Palestinian land with noble Jerusalem as its capital.”
Israeli Sovereignty, Not Appeasement,
Is the Key to Lasting Peace
5-17-20, Newsweek, Caroline Glick -- In the coming months, Israel is expected to apply its civilian law and administration to the 30 percent of Judea and Samaria (or the "West Bank") that President Donald Trump's recently unveiled peace plan anticipates remaining with Israel after a final peace agreement. One might expect that Israel's plan would be hailed for advancing peace and the equal rights of Israelis and Palestinians alike. But the more common response of many so-called experts has been to distort the facts and preemptively condemn Israel. The distortions begin with the very words used to describe Israeli plans. Across platforms, "experts" fret over what they call "Israeli annexation" of Judaea and Samaria [aka West Bank]. The state of Israel has sovereign rights to Judea and Samaria [annexation would be taking land from another nation] because of its declaration of independence May 14, 1948; 72 years ago; together with Britain's surrender of the Mandate it had been granted by the League of Nations to reconstitute the ancient Jewish national home, Israel became the one and only state that acquired sovereignty over all the Mandate's territory.
Saudi Arabia Doesn't Care About Jerusalem
Saudi crown prince: 'Palestinians must accept peace with Israel'
4-30-18, Alaraby.co.uk -- Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince reportedly recently said that the Islamic people in Israel called "Palestinians" should accept a peace deal with Israel or "shut up."
Saudi Arabia turned against Palestinians in Israel
3-17-20, MiddleEastEye.net -- With Riyadh Saudi Arabia backing the US Israel-Palestine peace deal, it aims to overcome any obstacles in its path - by putting Islamic terror group Hamas supporters on trial. [..] At the same time, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has hastened to cement its relations with Saudi Arabia’s perceived enemies in the region Iran, Qatar and Turkey.
Liberal Jewish Opposition to Israel’s Sovereignty is Cowardly The Saudis stopped hating Israel.
Wouldn’t it be nice if liberal Jews did too?
5-20-20, FrontPage, Daniel Greenfield -- The House of Saud, the oldest enemies of an independent free Jewish state, have at least temporarily, abandoned their project to destroy it by replacing it with the Islamic terrorist colony of ‘Palestine’. It’s a sad day when Wahhabi Islam shows more aptitude for setting aside its fanaticism and adapting to reality than the alphabet soup organizations that have been running the liberal Jewish community into the ground for over a hundred years. [..] Their weapons are terminology. They call applying Israeli sovereignty “annexation” and refer to cities like Ma’ale Adumim as “settlements” - Judaea & Samaria as 'West Bank'. These walls of words have enraptured policymakers and NPR listeners for generations while completely ignoring the physical realities of life for Jews and Muslims. [..]
Mahmoud Abbas, the 84-year-old dictator of the Palestinian Authority has refused to negotiate with the Trump administration, and also Obama administration. However, his predecessor, Yasser Arafat in the 1990-2000s sabotaged peace negotiations during the Bush and Clinton administrations. History and common sense say his successors will do the same thing. [..] The Arab petrocracies are worried enough about Iran that they’re making common cause with Israel. And President Trump is the most pro-Israel president in history. [..]
In the real world, Democrats and Republicans are tired of being asked about the Middle East peace process; it’s burned every president who touched it. European governments cynically never cared about it, but ritually bash Israel to appease their Arab trading partners and domestic Muslim populations.
The Arabs hoped to use the ‘Palestinian’ hoax to destroy Israel, only to realize that they need Israel to take on Iran.
There’s nothing else to wait for except the coming of the messiah...
WHEN IS THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD?
The Lord Jesus said: The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel and to heal; preaching deliverance to captives… and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. The Lord speaking to Apostle Paul: “I have heard thee in a time accepted and in the day of salvation have I succoured [aided] thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."
5-15-20, Bruce Warner* -- The acceptable year of the Lord and the Day of Salvation [Luke 4:18-19; 2 Corinthians 6:2], is when God will preserve and redeem His repentant born again believers in Christ. It is the Day of the Rapture of the Church. That momentous event will happen at a time accepted by the Lord, during the acceptable year of the Lord when His vengeance will occur; it’s spoken of in the following scriptures:
- Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me; because the LORD hath anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.”
- Isaiah 63:1-6 The Lord said: “I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger, trample them in My fury; their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garment and I will stain all My raiment. For the day of vengeance is in Mine heart and the year of My redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore Mine own arm brought salvation unto Me; and My fury, it upheld Me. I will tread down the people in Mine anger, make them drunk in My fury and I will bring down their strength to the earth."
Ezekiel 38:14-16 The Lord said: "Prophesy and say unto Gog: “Thus saith the Lord GOD; in that day when My people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company and a mighty army: Thou shalt come up against My people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against My land, that the heathen may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.”
Our redemption is near [James 5:7-8]; it is my understanding that God will not remove [aka rapture] His church before Jesus has His vengeance upon Israel by using the Gog Army [Ezekiel 38:1-6.] [Note: The enemy army: Islamic coalition of nations from Turkey. – Annette]
Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Reports of Israel Air Strikes in Southern Syria
Wars Between Israel and Syria: From 1948 to the Present 
TheHistoryGuy.com -- Beginning in 2010 [Obama US Pres], tensions between Syria and Israel are again rising, with Israel accusing Syria of transferring powerful Scud missiles to the Islamic terror group Hezbollah militia in Lebanon. The possible ramifications of this development could lead to a new Israel-Syria war.
Syria says Israeli helicopters strike targets in Southern Syria
5-1-20, Devdiscourse.com -- Today, May 1, 2020 in Israel, Syrian state media reported that Israeli helicopters fired several rockets from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on targets inside southern Syria in what Western intelligence sources have described as an increase in strikes against Iranian-backed militias this year. According to state media bases and convoys run by Lebanon's Iranian-backed Islamic terror group Hezbollah, the attacks caused only material damage. [..] Israel says Iran's military presence in Syria, where its militias are fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces, is a strategic threat and claims that Tehran seeks a permanent presence along its northern borders.
2-28-20, Haaretz -- Syria's official news agency SANA reported that recently Israeli struck Syrian military positions in the Quneitra province in the Golan Heights wounding three Syrian soldiers. There was no immediate comment from Israel.
However, in a rare acknowledgment of operations in neighboring Syria, Israel said that its warplanes struck Islamic Jihad targets south of Damascus, in addition to sites in the Gaza Strip. The strike came after Islamic Jihad fired a barrage of more than 20 rockets into southern Israel in response to the death of one of its operatives, who was shot by Israeli forces after they said he was laying an explosive charge near the Gaza border fence.
Early in February 2020 SANA reported that Syrian air defense systems were activated following a strike near the Damascus Airport that came from the Golan Heights. The Al-Hadath news channel reported that seven militants were killed in the attack targeting Iranian-backed militias.
Syrian state TV reported that an Israeli drone fired a missile at a car in southern Syria, killing one person whom it named as a "civilian." Several other media outlets aligned with Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime said that the man was a local policeman. Local media reports have identified the man as Imad Tawil, a senior Islamic terror group - Hezbollah - official aiding Iran's efforts to secure a foothold on the Golan Heights.
World Troubles, Woes and Misery
Jesus said, "I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you..." v1 The Apostle John had a vision: "I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies."

Israel: Benny Gantz Exits the Far Left Group
Stalemate in Israel Ends
4-8-20, Front Page – For the best … for the nation and the people; Benny Gantz, the former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief-of-Staff (2011-2015), displayed a measure of leadership recently - he pulled out of the Blue & White party choosing to be true to his constituents rather than to his former partisan leftist partners, Lapid and Ya’alon.
Currently Benny Gantz is being eviscerated by the left-leaning Israeli media and accused of betrayal. In joining the unity government, Gantz has abandoned the radical liberals in Israel's politics. In making this decision, he must have considered his lack of executive experience in government.
As co-leader with Netanyahu in a government under the coronavirus emergency, Gantz will gain necessary exposure and credibility as a partner in defeating the virus. This would clearly mark him as the rightful successor to Netanyahu. Under the Netanyahu-Gantz rotation agreement, Netanyahu will serve as prime minister until September, 2021 when Gantz will take over as prime minister. While the two sides agree on the rotation, there are still unresolved issues in the allocation of different authorities and departments within the Israeli government.
Apparently the corona virus has accomplished what three elections were unable to do. Gantz concluded correctly that the health and safety of the nation trumps political ideology and personal ambitions; Gantz made the right decision for his political future and the future of the Israeli people.

Supermoon Appears on Purim then Passover then Rosh Hashannah: An Omen Signaling the Imminent Return of the Davidic Dynasty?
The Fourth Day: The Lord God Creator of Heaven and Earth Made the Sun, Moon and Stars
"God said, 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; let them be for signs, seasons, days and years: Let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He set them in the firmament of the heaven ... to divide the light from the darkness: He made the stars also. God saw that it was good."
4-4-20, wakeupendtimenews , BreakingIsraelNews -- Supermoons annually appear 3-4 times; the first supermoon of 2020 appeared on Purim, March 9. Then on Passover April 6-8. Then in September on Rosh Hashannah the Jewish New Year. [A full supermoon at perigee appears roughly 14% larger in diameter than at apogee and appears up to 30 percent brighter.]
The holiday of Purim was set for the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar. As per the Holy Bible's Old Testament Book of Esther, the Jews who lived in Shushan Persia [today's Iran] celebrated Purim on the Hebrew calendar 15th of Adar; these two dates were established in perpetuity [forever].
Purim also coincides with the vernal (spring) equinox when the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. On the equinox, the day and night are each about 12 hours in length everywhere on Earth as created by almighty God. [Genesis 1:14-15, 16-18]
'Supermoons' in 2020:
- Purim: March 9
- Passover, April 7-8
- Thursday, May 7
- THEN: September 17, Rosh Hashanna [the Hebrew New Year] [Another iteration of this phenomenal event will take place for the first time this year: a new supermoon. Starting on Sept. 17, 2020 at 11 a.m. USA ET, a fresh "season" of new supermoons will begin its own back-to-back path.
Rabbi Yosef Berger noted the political significance of the supermoon falling on Purim, Passover and Rosh Hashanna - he said: “Every kingdom rises and falls and eventually disappears. Only Israel and the Davidic dynasty is eternal. That is because other kingdoms grab power by virtue of their strength. The moon, kingship, does not have a strength of its own [reflects light from the Sun]. Like the moon, kings must reflect the glory of the sun, of Hashem (God; literally the name. The only king who did this was King David. And so the Davidic dynasty is eternal, like the glory of God it channels into the world. Purim is where we see the glory of God brought into the world and overcoming an earthly king and the political forces that acted against the Jews. Pesach (Passover) was when Hashem [the Lord God] brought the Jews out of Egypt. He did so to have the world see that He was our one true King. Rosh Hashanna is when the Jews declare that Hashem is King. We know from the Talmud  that the Redemption will come in the months of Adar and Nissan, that is to say, the months of Purim and Pesach. A supermoon on all these holidays means that the Davidic dynasty is about to return.”
In 465 BC Persia [aka Iran] it's interesting to note that after King Ahasuerus sent out the decree to kill the Jews, the city of Purim became “dumbfounded” so he sent written instructions to all the king’s provinces to destroy, massacre and exterminate all the Yehudim [Hebrews], young and old[ Esther 3:13].
This Shushan Purim supermoon comes at a time in the modern world of 2020 when several nations are facing political confusion and upheaval:
- Israel just completed a third-round election that, through a remarkable and entirely un-anticipatable series of events, should have been scheduled for Purim. Since it is a national holiday, the elections were advanced one week earlier. Perhaps due to their roots in a holiday whose very nature implies confusion, the elections produced ambiguous results. According to most experts, neither Netanyahu nor his opponent, Benny Gantz, will be able to succeed in forming a coalition.
- The U.S. is currently going through primary campaigns in which the Democrats are most probably going to run their convention without any clear winner to be chosen as the most popular delegate.
- Many nations, including the USA, UK, Germany, China, Iran and even the Vatican, are being confused and challenged by the coronavirus.
- Modern Day Iran [aka Persia] and the Tomb of Jewish Queen Esther and Mordechai
Queen Esther is the iconic and legendary character of the Purim story. Her tomb, and that of the other hero of the story, Morchechai, lies in the Iranian city of Hamadan. Today in 2020 the Iranian Jews are known as the children of Esther; recently in an extremely Purim-like case of confusing the villain and the righteous hero, the Iranian government threatened to demolish the Tomb of Mordechai and Esther and convert the site into an Islamic anti-Jew Palestinian consular complex.
The Jewish Sages teach that once Moshiach (Messiah) arrives [they don't accept that Jesus Christ is their Messiah and He already came Matthew 23:37; 1 John 2:22], none of the Biblical festivals will be celebrated any longer except for Purim which is referred to as the “hidden holiday” since neither God’s name nor His intervention appears in the story of Purim. The name of Queen Esther, literally means hidden, Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-days author, explains that the distinctive light of Purim, which is embodied in the ability to recognize God even when He is hidden, will never be extinguished.

Are the Palestinians urging peace dialogue with Israel heroes or traitors?
2-21-20. JPost -- Why is the PLO [Palestinians] overseeing a committee responsible for engagement with Israelis? Where are Palestinian nongovernmental organizations that are supposed to be promoting peace and coexistence with Israel? [..] Palestinian officials publicly condemn Arab states for normalizing their ties with Israel while the same officials are engaged in meeting with Israelis to promote peace. [..] Even if the current controversy over normalization with Israel subsides, it’s clear that the smear campaign against those Palestinians who still believe in promoting dialogue with Israelis has succeeded in deterring others from engaging in future “peace” encounters.
Israel’s ‘radical’ critics in U.S. have ‘taken political spotlight’ and increased ‘risks for war’ — AIPAC head
3-2-20, Mondoweiss -- Rightfully many support Israel’s right to exist; but that’s not up for debate– Israel exists! Recently head of the Israel lobby group AIPAC sounded “an alarm” about Israel’s political enemies in the USA taking “the spotlight” in politics. AIPAC ceo, Howard Kohr said that a “radical” movement to end the U.S. special relationship to Israel has “national ambitions” to undermine the bipartisan consensus in favor of Israel. Kohr targeted Bernie Sanders and his surrogates who have criticized Israel, such as Muslim American Linda Sarsour and the ex NY bartender turned Congresswoman Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
3-7-20, Haaretz -- While Prime MInister Benjamin Netanyahu's explained how he won despite the fact that his party came in second place. The numbers are quite simple. All the parties running in this 3rd election made Netanyahu-related commitments. Those who supported him won 2.2 million votes; those who swore never to sit with the man won 2.33 million. In other words, in the referendum on his rule, which was the main foundation of the election (as in the previous ones), he emerged the loser. Netanyahu’s famous whiteboard is erasable, but the votes of Israeli citizens are not. [Note: very complicated more here]

Muslims in Israel aka "Palestinians" 1000 times NO!
1-29-20, Hotair.com -- Palestinian Muslim leader in Israel Mahmoud Abbas said “a thousand no” insisting that his people were committed to establishing a Palestinian state with its capital in East Jerusalem. Um… that’s exactly what Israel just offered you. He also ...
... said they want the entire West Bank, plus full control of areas the Jews recovered during the 1967 war. And that would leave Israel virtually unable to defend itself from the Muslim terrorist attacks that would obviously continue regardless of any signed agreement.

Bernie Sanders Declares his desire to Move US Embassy Out of Jerusalem
2-26-20, FrontPage -- Bernie isn't really calling the shots on policy. Certainly not on anything that touches the nerves of the Islamists dominating his campaign. Bernie's line about considering moving the US embassy out of Israel's capitol, Jerusalem is the equivalent of the 50s housewife stalling for a time so she can ask her husband.
Israel Peace Plan Analyzed
God Warned About Dividing Israel's Land
- #1 - 'No such thing as a Palestinian people' as such there is no such thing as a state of Palestine [Pastor Farag grew up as a Arab Muslim in Israel being told he was a 'Palestinian' ..] - Israel was named in 70 AD after the Jews enemy the 'Philistines' ergo the name ... appx 1994 Yassar Arafat who was an Egyptian started the entire 'Palestinian thing!' - the nation of Israel was reborn in 1948.
- #2 - the Arabs only want total destruction of the Jews and Israel - they don't want to co-habit in the land.
- #3 - Not only did Yassar Arafat reject Bill Clinton's peace plan of 1998 when the Arabs were offered 75% of Jerusalem they also rejected a state of 'Palestine'
- #4 - one illegitimate claim the Muslims make that Jerusalem's Islamic al-aqsa mosque on Solomon's Temple Mount is their holy site but: [strange that when they pray there they direct their back sides to it.
- #5 - Jerusalem is the true LEGITIMATE capitol of Israel only for the Jewish state of Israel beause almighty God literally deemed it so! In the Book of Genesis, God appeared to Abraham and said: “I will assign this land to your offspring” (Genesis 12:3, 15:18-21; Psalm 122:6) [no where in the Muslim book 'Koran' is Jerusalem mentioned even once - yet it appears over 600 times in the Holy Bible].
End the Hoax:
There Are No Palestinians
The “Palestinian people” is a propaganda fiction.
It’s time to stop playing along.
King Hussein of Jordan put it most succinctly of all in 1981: “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.”
Nonetheless, the myth has taken hold, and it is now widely taken for granted, in our age that has little historical memory and scant interest in gaining more, that the Palestinians are a genuine nationality, and are the indigenous people of the land that Israel illegally occupies.
This is a propaganda success that Josef Goebbels and the editors of Pravda would have envied, and it became the foundation for more. Having established the Palestinians as a tiny indigenous people whose land was stolen by rapacious, well-heeled, and oppressive foreigners, it was time to return to the negotiating table – not in order to achieve any genuine accord with Israel, but to exploit the victimhood status of the new tiny people they had invented in order to win valuable concessions from the Israelis.
If all this were recognized, the onus would be on Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and the other Arab states for not welcoming their Palestinian Arab brethren. The contention that the Palestinians are a people who must have a state would lose much of its force. Returning to reality and discarding propaganda fantasies can never have a downside. It’s time to take that step. More here

Gingrich said, "I feel quite confident that an amazing number of Israelis found it nice to have an American tell the truth about the war they are in the middle of, and the casualties they are taking and the people around them who say, ‘They do not have a right to exist and we want to destroy them.'"

2-2-20, John Haller's weekly update covers the China virus hysteria and an-depth look at newly released President Trump's Middle East "Deal of the Century." Many believe it is designed to cause the Muslims to reject it giving the Jews a window to take full control of Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley. Although many disapprove because the Jews may give up more land if it's accepted. The consternation because God strongly disapproves dividing HIS land.

521BC: The Jews Second Temple in Jerusalem
“The first thing that is similar between President Trump’s Deal of the Century and King Cyrus’ proclamation is that both men are non-Jewish political figures who are coming in the name of the God of Israel in order to advance the divine plan incumbent upon the Jewish nation. This may be the reason why Trump’s deal is uncomfortable for Israelis and Israeli politicians who are certainly not used to this in their political forum. There are very few Israeli politicians who act or speak this way, certainly not secular politicians and not even the religious politicians.” – Dr Minnes
1-29-20, Dr Rafael Minnes of the universities in Israel believes that the US President Donald Trump may be a parallel to the 515 BC Cyrus the Great, King of Persia [today’s Iran] and Media vanquished the Babylonian army, decreed [at the urging of prophets Haggai and Zechariah, who – almost 2000 years ago - facilitated and helped the Jews rebuild their second temple of worship] and the exiled Jews return to Judea, which had become the Persian province of Yehud (Ezra 1:2-3, 2; 2 Chronicles 36:23).
King Cyrus did not take upon himself to act for the Jewish people. He did not build the Temple or reinstate the Davidic Dynasty; he merely enabled the Jews to act independently. [Haggai 1:1-15 & 2:1-23]
That is precisely what Trump is doing. Trump offered to apply sovereignty to all Judah and Samaria, which Prime Minister Netanyahu hadn't considered. He is not giving Israel a gift or forcing something upon us. He is telling us to do what is our right and obligation to do in our own country and he is doing so without any pre-conditions. Trump announced that it is Israel’s right to express our sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
Just as many people do not view Trump’s deal favorably, this was also true when King Cyrus proclaimed that the Jews could return to build the Second Temple. Most of the Jews opposed Cyrus’ decree. The Jews who supported Cyrus and acted on his decree were the less successful segments of the Jewish community, the poor and powerless with no status in Babylonian society. This also seems to be the case today, that the Jews who look for their own personal short-term goals which necessitate their staying in exile object to Trump’s politics; but looking at a larger vision of a future for the Jewish People, Trump’s politics in general and this deal, in particular, are precisely what will take us there. “He opened the door for us to do what we need to do. Despite all its shortcomings, Cyrus’ proclamation paved the way for the Second Temple. The same might be said of Trump’s deal.
The first Jewish temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC. Approximately 515 BC under the support and help of King Cyrus it was rebuilt. It was believed to be the Lord's dwelling place (Deut 12:14-15). It also played a central role in the early history of Christianity. Jesus’ family came to the temple after His birth for His circumcision and to celebrate the redemption of the firstborn (Exod 13:13, Num 18:15-16). Later, Jesus taught in the temple during one of His family’s Passover pilgrimages (Luke 2:41-48).
It's recorded that the Lord Jesus saw the corrupt practices within His temple and with righteous anger He overturned the money changers’ tables and chased them out with a whip (Mark 11:15). Jesus was participating in the festival (John 2:13) of Passover. The temple and its sacrifices figure prominently in Hebrews 10:1-8. Then in 70 AD it was destroyed by the Romans. *Excerpted and adapted full original report here
The Israel & Palestinian Deal for Peace:
When Muslims Refuse Deal ...
The BIG DEAL OF THE CENTURY?
1-29-20, The massive reunification of Judea and Samaria and Jordan Valley without Muslims agreement: US President Donald J. Trump repeatedly has proven himself unequivocally and with dizzying consistency as an outstanding friend of the Jewish State of Israel; certainly better than any Jew in American party politics. Trump's deal for Israel; the more complex analysis turns on whether it is much more sensible for Israel, decidedly without embracing it, to just sit back and let the “Palestinians” blow it up on their own.
- Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol
- Moved the United States embassy to Jerusalem
- Recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Height
- Declared the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria as not inherently illegal
- Cut off funding for UNRWA [United Nations] for the Palestinians
- Threw the PLO out of Washington
- Pulled America out of the anti-Jewish United Nations Human Rights Council
- It may even be that the “Deal of the Century” has been concocted to break the impasse by inducing the “Palestinian” leadership to prove what they are, thereby justifying Israel moving ahead with Reunification (“annexation” of Judea & Samaria).
- Once the “Palestinians” outright reject the Trump Plan, there remains no further excuse for Israel to refrain from reunifying the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria, for once and for all.
- Justification for reunification becomes that the “Palestinians,” once again, “never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” The door then is opened for the Jews to move forward; brilliant!
US President Trump & Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu Unveil Precepts in 'Peace Plan'
Full video about 48 minutes here
See Prime Min Netanyahu at 30 min mark
Today, Tuesday, January 28, 2020 President Donald Trump with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House announced the plan for peace in the Middle East. [Trump met with challenger to Netanyhu's election - Benny Gantz yesterday, 1-27-20]. Proposing that Israel and the region will be safer [skirting complaints that Palestinians have already rejected the proposal and didn’t take part in drafting the plan or were invited to this current event]. The President said this plan:
- Presents a “contiguous” [neighboring - see map below] territory for a Palestinian state once conditions are met
- Demands “rejection of terrorism”
- Opens a “transition” to a two-state solution
- Jerusalem Israel’s “undivided capitol”
- Will have a territory destined for Palestinian control that would go undeveloped for four years to give space for talks with Israel to progress
- Israel is willing to make territorial sacrifices [again land for peace!]
- Palestinians will have twice the land
- $50 billion dollars offered for future self sustaining Palestinian people – stop charity
- No Jews or Muslims would be removed from their homes
- Calls on the Palestinian Authority to:
- adopt “basic laws” on protecting all human rights
- fight corruption
- stop malign activities of Hamas and Islamic Jihad
- end financial compensation to terrorists
- stop incitement against the Jewish People of Israel
- recognize Israel as the official 'Jewish State'
However, even before the plan was released, the proposal was criticized by Palestinians and many Mideast analysts for being biased in Israel’s favor and thus unlikely to end the centuries old conflict. And the notion of an “undivided” Jerusalem will anger Palestinians, who have long sought to make East Jerusalem the capital of their future state.
The plan gives the Palestinians less than they have been offered in previous plans that they rejected, leaving its prospects for success slim. A Palestinian official Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat has threatened that the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority would withdraw from key provisions of the Oslo Accords if US President Trump unveils his so-called “Deal of the Century.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is due to convene Palestinian leaders to discuss the plan after its presentation and to release a statement. His administration has also called for an emergency session of the Arab League in Cairo on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020. Abbas didn't immediately comment on the plan, but called for Palestinian demonstrators to protest in a "Day of Rage" as their response.
Israeli security forces prepare for more violent confrontations stemming from disapproval of the 'peace plan.'

Pres Trump Invites Israel's PM Netanyahu and Benny Gantz to White House to Unveil Peace Plan, January 28, 2020
But there will be no peace ...
"In those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries."
1-25-20, ForeignPolicy.com -- On Tuesday, January 28, 2020 the U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political rival Benny Gantz at the White House. The purpose of the meeting is to unveil some of the details of the Middle East peace plan. PM Netanyahu and Gantz both have accepted the invitation.
In June 2019 - in Bahrain's Middle East Peace to Prosperity Conference, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and a White House adviser, announced the first part of the plan—expanding foreign investment in the Muslim aka "Palestinian" enclaves. The meetings were boycotted by Muslim/Palestinian officials. One of the Muslim leaders in Israel, Mahmoud Abbas and other leaders were not invited as they have refused to discuss the plan since the Jewish city of Jerusalem has been recognized by many nations as Israel’s capitol. The US and others have moved their embassies there; in 2018 the USA was the first.
The Palestinians rebuffed attempts to discuss any peace plan with Israel; they were attempted through European intermediaries and are expected to reject the plan once it becomes public. Jeremiah 6:14; Ezekiel 13:16; Matthew 13:43
12-11-19, UPI -- Israel heads for record third election. ... Current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of the Likud Party, will remain prime minister for now. Under Israeli law, the Knesset needs least 61 of the 120 seats in the parliament to form government, but when the deadline passed an election was automatically called for March 2, 2020. Benny Gantz of the Blue and White party has chosen to seek soft right voters for the 2020 election. Both Gantz and Netanyahu are promising the voters they will annex the Jordan valley.... More here

Israel Golan Heights Proclamation by Pres Trump & Netanyahu's Declaration first town named "Trump Heights"
3-27-19, CNBC -- Pres Trump signed a proclamation officially recognizing Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, captured from Syria in 1967 & has occupied ever since. In Nov 2019 Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu declared the newest town in the Golan as 'TRUMP HEIGHTS.'
President Trump said:
“After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!”
It’s yet another rejection by the Trump administration of decades of U.S. policy.

Israel Commemoration of 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Germany's Nazi Concentration Camp 'Auschwitz' in Poland
United States Vice President Mike Pence Calls for World to Unite Against Anti-Semitism
1-23-20, Fox News -- United States Vice President Mike Pence delivered a stirring speech in the Jewish state of Israel. In her capitol of Jerusalem VP Pence before an audience that included world leaders of more than 40 nations, at Israel's Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Germany concentration camp of 'Auschwitz.' The vice president honored the Allied Forces who fought to liberate Europe from the grip of Germany's Nazis drawing inspiration from the "non-Jewish heroes who saved countless lives" during the Holocaust. Pence called the world to combat anti-Semitism amid a rise in violence against Jews around the globe. VP Pence said:
“We gather to fulfill the solemn obligation, an obligation of remembrance, to never let the memory of those who died in the Holocaust to be forgotten by anyone anywhere in the world. Today we remember what happens when the powerless cry for help and the powerful refuse to answer. [..]
“We must be prepared to confront and expose the vile tide of anti-Semitism that is fueling hate and violence across the world and we must stand together. The world must stand strong against the Islamic Republic of Iran. And finally. we must have the courage to recognize -- all the leaders and the nations that are gathered here -- that today we have the responsibility and the power to ensure that what we remember here today can never happen again."

1-23-20, At the 75th Anniversary of the Soviets liberating the Jews from Auschwitz, Russia's President Vladimir Putin became emotional as he gave his short remarks in Jerusalem
Axis forces besieged Leningrad [Saint Petersburg] for 872 days, seeking to starve out the Soviet Union’s second-largest city. Almost 650,000 Soviet civilians perished, including Putin’s elder brother Viktor Putin, before the blockade was lifted on January 27, 1944. Documents, diaries and newsreels cannot convey what the people of Leningrad really endured, Putin said at the ceremony. "Deprived of food, light, warmth, they continued to work in hospitals, engage in art, science and education. Sacrificing themselves, they saved a great city for future generations. The unconquered Leningrad became a true legend, the greatness of fortitude and faith in the victory of its inhabitants, the pinnacle of human dignity."
He offered a shocking detail that in a single year the Leningraders donated 144 tons of blood for the troops fighting on the front line, in defiance of their own deprivation. Israel, like Russia, understands the significance of the lessons of WWII and refuses to allow the world to forget where tolerating chauvinism, anti-Semitism, and Russophobia can lead.
See video of Russia being honored to cut the ribbon of the unveiling of the Leningrad Monument here
With the comment, Katz was referring to a debate that has surfaced anew in Poland about the role of Russia during the war, with Poland claiming that Russia was an enabler of Hitler because of a pact between Russia and Nazi Germany that Warsaw claims led to a deal to divide Poland between them. Poland is not attending the event Thursday.
1-23-20, Israel is hosting 5th annual World Holocaust Forum, marking the 75 years since the Nazi death camps at Auschwitz Poland was liberated by Soviet troops. Present-day politics have cast a shadow over the solemn occasion, however. Delegations of 40 countries will attend the main event at the Yad Vashem memorial complex to remember the Jewish Nazi Holocaust and express commitment to fighting anti-Semitism.However, Polish President Andrzej Duda refused to attend as he was offended that Russian President Vladimir Putin was invited to speak at the ceremony and he was not. He will be speaking at Poland’s own commemoration on Monday. Poland is embroiled in a bitter dispute with Russia over the causes and consequences of the Second World War.
The current Polish government, President Andrzej Duda has refused to give the Soviet Union any credit for liberating the Jews from Auschwitz death camps – or Poland, for that matter – insisting instead that their country was a purely innocent victim of Nazis and Soviets in equal measure where the Jewish death camps were located. More here
On January 27, 1945 Soviet troops enter Auschwitz, Poland, freeing the Jewish survivors of the network of Nazi Germany concentration camps; finally revealing to the world the depth of the horrors perpetrated there. Auschwitz was really a group of camps, designated I, II, and III. There were also 40 smaller “satellite” camps. It was at Auschwitz II, at Birkenau, established in October 1941, that the SS Nazis from Germany created a complex, monstrously orchestrated killing ground: 300 prison barracks; four “bathhouses” in which prisoners were gassed; corpse cellars; and cremating ovens. Thousands of prisoners were also used for medical experiments overseen and performed by the camp doctor, Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death.”
The Red Army of the Soviet Union had been advancing deeper into Poland since mid-January 1945 liberating Warsaw and Krakow. Then the Soviet troops headed for Auschwitz. In anticipation of the Soviet arrival, the German Gestapo began a murder spree in the camps, shooting sick prisoners and blowing up crematoria in a desperate attempt to destroy the evidence of their crimes.

When the Soviets finally broke through, Soviet soldiers encountered 648 corpses and more than 7,000 starving Jewish survivors. There were also six storehouses filled with literally hundreds of thousands of women’s dresses, men’s suits and shoes that the Germans did not have time to burn.

Bible Truths Proven: Israel Ritual Baths Discovered
Thanks to Heavy Rains: Ritual Baths for Temple now Fully Functional for First Time in 2,000 Years
Almighty God said to ancient Jews: "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty"
1-13-20, Excavation and archaeology are a blessing to believers proving the truth of the Holy Bible. Thousands of years ago, Jews would travel from all over Israel three times a year to visit the Holy Temple in Jerusalem to worship God, as the Bible commands in Deuteronomy 16:16:
- Pesach [aka Passover] Exodus 23:15; Luke 22:15; 1 Corinthians 5:7
- Shavuot [aka Pentecost] — all males shall appear before Hashem your God in the place that He will choose. Also called "The Feast of Weeks" to travel to Jerusalem (Exodus 23:14–17; 34:22–23; Deuteronomy 16:16). This important feast gets its name from the fact that it starts seven full weeks, or exactly 50 days, after the Feast of Firstfruits. Since it takes place exactly 50 days after the previous feast, this feast is also known as “Pentecost” (Acts 2:1), which means “fifty.” [Also 50 days after the resurrection of Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 2:1-4]
- Sukkot [aka Tabernacles] As a feast instituted by God, Sukkot was never forgotten. It was celebrated in the time of Solomon (2 Chronicles 8:13). In fact, it was during Sukkot that Solomon’s temple was dedicated (1 Kings 8:2). It was observed during Hezekiah's time (2 Chronicles 31:3; Deuteronomy16:16), and after the return from exile (Ezra 3:4; Zechariah 14:16,18-19).
The ancient mikvah was rediscovered just 35 years ago. Although it is currently under the control of the military and has not yet been completely restored, Mr. Brezis spoke excitedly about the Biblical significance of the mikvah and the area surrounding it. He knows it has the potential to captivate Bible-based Jews and Christian alike as he's
witnessed visitors crying at the site, as they come to understand its Biblical significance.
Visitors imagine an ancient time that the area around the mikvah was crowded with thousands of pilgrims together it often brings them to tears.
It is still possible today to see Jerusalem from the nearby Jewish community of Neve Daniel. Brezis connected this location to Avraham’s vision of Jerusalem on his journey to fulfill God’s command to sacrifice his son Yitzchak (Isaac). On the third day Avraham looked up and saw the place from afar. Genesis 22:4
Since the mikvah hasn’t yet been fully restored, the rainwater-filled pools may only last a few weeks, during Israel’s rainy season. Nevertheless, it’s amazing to see this place, even without the water. More here
