We have entered into a season unlike any other in our nation’s history. The month of Elul has passed, also known as the month of repentance. Our nation’s intercessors have cried out for the sins our our nation. Many have fasted, prayed and turned from their sins. There was a national event called The Return on September 26, 2020, coinciding near the Day of Atonement this year which began at sundown on September 27. The Day of Atonement (also known as Yom Kippur) is the day on God’s calendar set aside for NATIONAL REPENTANCE. Thousands went to Washington D.C. to pray for our leaders, government and the fate of our nation. Those who couldn’t attend prayed in their homes and churches.

Has it been enough? Only God knows. Only he knows the heart of every American. Only he knows the true intentions that lie deep within our souls.

The repentance shouldn’t stop here. The intercession for our nation should keep flowing like a daily river of Living Water.

Now we are entering into a new season…….. THE SEASON OF THE FLOOD

The Fall Feasts are over and we have begun a new year according to the Hebrew calendar. Unlike the Gregorian calendar, which begins in January and ends in December, the biblical year begins in the month of Tishrei and ends in the month of Elul. On the Gregorian calendar, Tishrei falls in September or October, depending on the year. This means the biblical new year begins in September or October each year. The Gregorian calendar is a strictly solar calendar, while the biblical calendar is a lunar/solar calendar. This is why the dates vary from year to year. For instance, this year (2020) the biblical new year began at sundown on September 18. Next year, in 2021, however, it will begin on September 6 at sundown.

A biblical calendar

The biblical new year is referred to as Rosh Hashanah, which means the head of the year. In the Bible it is called the Feast of Trumpets. The shofar is blown 100 times on this special day to ring in the New Year.

I don’t have time to go into the significance of the Feast of Trumpets and the new year so if you want more info on this, click here. What I want to emphasize, however, is that the biblical new year can usher in great changes for nations and leaders, as well as the people of God.

When the trumpet sounds at the new year, it’s a reminder that God is doing something new. The old has passed away, but the new has arrived.

The Feast of Trumpets and the Death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Let me start by saying that the biblical new year began with a bang this year! The new year officially began at sundown September 18, 2020 and something quite significant happened right before the new year was ushered in. Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. Ginsburg was Jewish and passed away just as the Jewish New Year was beginning.

Why is this significant? Ginsburg was the most liberal Justice on the Supreme Court, known for advocating abortion and strongly supporting the LGBTQ agenda. When she died a vacancy was left open on Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Feast of Trumpets. Who filled this vacancy? It was none other than a Christian conservative mother of seven children- Amy Coney Barrett. The trumpet was blown with a loud, resonating blast on the Feast of Trumpets as a staunch conservative replaced a staunch liberal. Something new happened. This new thing would shake up our nation and produce both hope and discord among Americans.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg died just before the Feast of Trumpets was set to begin. This means technically she died on the last day of Elul, which is also known as the last day of repentance.

The entire month of Elul on the biblical calendar is tied to repentance. Believers are to spend extra time searching their lives for sin and turning back to the Lord. A trumpet is blown each day in the synagogue as a reminder to Wake Up and repent! Elul 29 is the last day of repentance on the biblical calendar before the new year starts and this is when Ginsburg died.

America legalized abortion in 1973. This national sin brings judgment from God. Repentance is desperately needed and our nation must turn from this sin. Justices like Ginsburg championed abortion instead of condemning it. By contrast, Presidents like Donald Trump stand up for the rights of the unborn and declare life is precious and created by God in the womb.

Now here’s something to ponder: Amy Coney Barrett, who is a conservative Justice, was sworn in on Hillary Clinton’s 73rd birthday (October 26)! That must have been a punch to the gut for Clinton, who like Ginsburg, is a staunch champion for abortion. Interestingly enough, Roe vs Wade was decided in 1973. Did you catch the 73 in Clinton’s birthday and the year of Roe vs. Wade?

Amy Barrett has been criticized and attacked for her conservative and religious views, but she graciously stands her ground. It’s no coincidence regarding the season of her appointment as Supreme Court Justice – which happened because Ginsburg passed away at one of God’s appointed times- The Feast of Trumpets. Did you know the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashahah) is known as one of the moedim? This Hebrew word means appointment!

Even more telling is the birthday of Ruth Bader Ginsburg which is March 15- also known as the Ides of March. If you don’t know what the Ides of March is, just look at Roman history. It’s the date that Caesar was assassinated by members of his own government. The Senators who conspired to kill him claimed they were fearful that Ceasar had too much power and was undermining the Roman Republic. They claimed their attack on Caesar was justified. This assassination was a turning point in Roman history in that the government was not able to restore the Republic after this occurred. This led to civil war.

The Civil War – The Ides of America

Hmm, does this sound familiar? We have a liberal vigilant leftist agenda led by those who want to take down the Republic of the United States. They spread lies by claiming Donald Trump is a dictator when in actuality, they are the dictators plotting to take him out of power through nefarious schemes. They cannot stand the idea of conservative Supreme Court Justice Amy Barrett being part of the American system of democracy. When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, the plot thickened and their schemes became darker. More than ever, they plotted to win the election by fraud and then packing the court with liberal justices. The Ides of March bears an eerie resemblance to what’s going on in our government right now.

This is why this new biblical year must be a YEAR OF INTERCESSION AND PRAYER.

Biden has been declared President BY THE MEDIA, but that doesn’t mean it it is LEGAL or true. There is evidence of voter fraud and the fight is on to keep the Republic. This year will be the time to roar like a lion and fight for the truth to come out!

The Abraham Accords and the Feast of Trumpets

Something else happened just before the biblical new year began on September 18, 2020 (at sundown). President Trump and leaders from Israel, the United Arab Emirates, as well as Bahrain joined together to sign the Abraham Accords on September 15, 2020. The nations of the United Arab Emirates are as follows: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwain, and Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.

This deal allows for the normalizing of relations between Israel and these nations. They can now work cooperatively when it comes to trade and economic interests. Instead of hostile relations they will now engage in peaceful, diplomatic relations. This is quite prophetic because in the Gog/Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39, these are some of the nations who do not attack Israel. They do not conspire against Israel. The Abraham Accords take us one step closer to this prophetic alignment already mentioned in prophecy.

On the biblical calendar the date of the Abraham Accords (September 15) just happened to fall on the 26th day of Elul. This is amazing because something very important happened near this date that is described in the verses below:

“Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophet Noadiah and how she and the rest of the prophets have been trying to intimidate me. So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days,” Nehemiah 6:14,15.

These verses state something astounding and prophetic. They say that the wall of Jerusalem was completed on the 25th day of Elul. Why is that significant? Because the wall was completed on this date and this wall would protect the city of Jerusalem. The Temple had been built and now the wall was the last thing that needed to be done to secure the city and its Temple.

The Walls of Jerusalem were finished on the 25th of Elul, and the Abraham Accords were signed on the 26th of Elul. That’s a difference of just one day on the biblical calendar.

The Abraham Accords are designed as a wall of protection for Israel because they keep the enemies of Israel at bay and on peaceful terms. In comparison, the walls of Jerusalem were meant to keep enemies out and secure the city.

The builders of Nehemiah’s wall were taunted, jeered and intimidated. If you read the book of Nehemiah you will see how the builders of the wall were constantly being mocked and threatened. Nonetheless, they kept building and doing God’s work.

Certainly President Trump and Conservative voices have been taunted and harassed as well, but through the Lord we are victorious regardless of what the media says and the taunts they yell. We can be mocked, censored and ridiculed, but we will not stop doing the Lord’s work. Part of that work is fighting lies and evil. The most important part, however, is spreading the truth of the gospel no matter what the mockers say!

By the way, the numbering of the verse is quite significant! Donald Trump’s birthday is on June 14, or 6-14. The numbering of the verses are Nehemiah 6:14 and 6:15. The verses are about the wall being built and of course we know Trump campaigned on building a wall.

Donald Trump was also born on a total lunar eclipse in 1946. This total eclipse was visible in Jerusalem, Israel. The duration of the eclipse was 5 hours and 6 minutes, with 1 hour and 31 minutes of totality.  Lunar eclipses are tied to Israel because they follow a Hebrew calendar, which is set to a lunar cycle. Also, 700 days after Donald Trump was born, it was May 14, 1948- better known as Israeli Independence Day. Israel once again became a nation after being scattered all over the world. The prophecies of Ezekiel 37 came to pass as Israel was literally born in a day!

The verses being numbered 6:14 and 6:15 are a reminder of Trump’s birthday of 6-14, but also of another eclipse that is quite ancient, but extremely significant. This solar eclipse happened on 6-15 (June 15) in 763 BC. This eclipse is called the Assyrian Eclipse and is believed to be the one that happened in Nineveh before the prophet Jonah came to tell the nation to repent.

Trump’s name is a message in itself. His name means warning or alarm, as well as repent. During his presidency our nation had a total solar eclipse that touched ONLY OUR LAND on August 21, 2017. This hasn’t happened since 1776. This eclipse occurred on the first day of Elul, which begins the month of repentance. Solar eclipses are signs to the nations because the nations follow a solar calendar. Not every solar eclipse has significance, but you must see where it falls on the biblical calendar. Since this one touched only our nation and it fell on the first day of Elul on the biblical calendar, it’s important to take note and ask what God is trying to tell us. In this case, I believe the message is to repent and turn to Jesus as individuals, and as a nation.

See link for maps of the eclipse and other info. Here is a blog I wrote about the eclipse as well. The eclipse is called The Great American Solar Eclipse. Here are some pictures of the eclipse.

What’s also interesting is that Donald Trump was born June 14, 1946 on the day of a total lunar eclipse, but there was a partial solar eclipse that happened less than a month before he was born. The timing of the eclipse is interesting because it occurred on May 30, 1946 which happened to be Memorial Day. This was the first Memorial Day since the end of World War 2. People were still in a state of restlessness, and were unsure if peace would last. Eleanor Roosevelt is quoted as saying, “The ways of peace have not returned to us, and the results of war are still upon us.

Recently on Memorial Day 2020, there was an event that caused the peace in our nation to unravel and bring a giant flood of unrest. The death of George Floyd caused riots, looting and waves of hate that lashed our police, streets and businesses. Our nation had to swim through these giant waves that came one after the other. Over time we realized a hateful agenda was brewing through the Black Lives Matter Movement, as well as Antifa. Their target: American democracy and Donald Trump.

The message in all this is clear. A war has already begun. A flood is here. It’s the season to intercede. It’s the season to draw close to Jesus. It’s the season to demand the truth be told.

There are even more connections to be seen.

Even the book of Ezra shows a connection to Trump because take a look at Ezra 6:14-—- remember Trump’s birthday is 6-14 (June 14)

“So the Jewish elders continued their work, and they were greatly encouraged by the preaching of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah son of Iddo. The Temple was finally finished, as had been commanded by the God of Israel and decreed by Cyrus, Darius, and Artaxerxes, the kings of Persia,”

So these verses say the Temple was finally finished! We even see the name Cyrus in this verse. President Trump has been compared to King Cyrus who allowed the Jews to go back to Jerusalem to rebuild their Temple. Why? Because Trump recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel on December 6, 2017- the same year as the Great American Solar Eclipse by the way. Trump gathered the people of our nation and blew the trumpet by announcing to the whole world that Jerusalem belongs to Israel! Of course, Jerusalem is where the Temple once stood during biblical times! Jerusalem is also where Jesus will return to rule and reign!

My point is that Trump is being used by the Lord to do some prophetic things. Only God knows the full plan, but I believe the main idea we should understand is that our nation needs to repent, turn back to Jesus and we need to stand with Israel. We also need to pray for President Trump! We need to pray for the schemes of the enemy to be revealed and for justice to be served.

Right now with the election up in the air we are called more than ever to pray! Joe Biden does not support the laws of God. He is pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and Anti-Israel. He is also a supporter of the New World Order. The season to intercede and stand your ground is now!

That reminds me of the 6:14 again! (Trump’s birthday). There’s a verse in EPHESIANS 6:14 that says:

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place

The King James Version says:

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness”

Having your loins girt about with truth means to be ready for the battle. Back in biblical times soldiers wore a long tunic. When it was time for battle they had to tuck their tunic into their belt so they could move freely. This was a step of action and it meant they were about to engage in battle.

Let’s be frank America! You better be ready for the battle because it’s already here! Like it or not, you are involved one way or another. The question is, whose side are you on? Well, the easiest answer to that is: YOU SHOULD BE ON JESUS’ SIDE. Notice I didn’t say you have to be a Republican or Democrat. I’m saying you should go deep in prayer with the Lord and make sure you’re fighting for his principles. Make sure you are fighting to keep the foundation of this nation under his mighty hands. It’s time to gird your loins and intercede.

Personally, I am a conservative Republican because I support the rights of the innocent unborn. I also support the scriptures which say marriage is between a man and a woman, and that God made us male and female. I also support Israel and their covenant land. I support freedom of speech and freedom of religion. When I pray, I am praying that our nation will support and uphold these Judeo-christian values because they are the bedrock of our country. The Founding Fathers fought for this! But, the original Founding Father is God and he is the architect of our land. We cannot reject his laws and expect to be blessed.

The November 3 election has ushered in a daunting season of warfare for America. Recently I learned something quite revealing about the November 3rd date and how it corresponds to the biblical calendar. This date fell on Cheshvan 16 and 17. The reason I am putting both 16 and 17 is because on the biblical calendar, days begin and end at sunset each day. This means when voting began on November 3, 2020 it was Cheshvan 16, but as the sun went down that day it became Chesvan 17.

The month of Cheshvan on the calendar

Something very significant happened on this date- Cheshvan 17. It is something so significant that it wiped out every living thing on the earth. What was it you ask? According to scripture, this is the date Noah’s Flood began. See Genesis 7:11

“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.  And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.”

The Hebrew biblical calendar has 12 months and the second month is Cheshvan.

So on this date the floodgates of the heavens were opened! The springs of the great deep burst forth.

A Flood Began on November 3

Hmm, I don’t know about you, but I felt like the great flood waters burst forth on Election Day! Oh yes they did! Not only that, a flood of corruption sprang forth as ballots were forged and piles of fraudulent ballots turned up in droves. The very state that houses our Liberty Bell stands accused of very un- liberty -like behavior! Just like the cracked bell, they have put a crack in our election system.

Niagara Falls

The month of Cheshvan is also called Mar-Cheshvan. The word Mar means bitter. This alludes to the fact that there are no biblical festive holidays during this month.

I know a lot of people who are feeling that bitter sting right now! No one likes to feel cheated. Also our nation’s voting system hangs in the balance with this election. This sets the precedent for future elections. The floodgates of prayer are needed right now. I don’t know how this will all turn out, but regardless we will need to get on the Ark with Jesus during this Flood.

Look what it says after Genesis 7:11, which happened on Cheshvan 17 –Nov 3, 2020 on our calendar:

“On that very day (Cheshvan 17) Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.  They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.  The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.

We see here that Noah and his family went into the Ark on Cheshvan 17. The waters were about to let loose and run wild. Very soon the waters would burst forth like Niagara Falls one hundred times over. But Noah and his family would be safe inside the Ark. They would be protected in the Lord’s shelter.

Since Trump became President our nation has faced some turbulent waters. But, now these same waters are raging, and certainly we have reached flood status. And it will probably get worse. The fight won’t get easier.

But, we can shut ourselves in with the Lord. It’s the time and the season to do this!

No, I don’t mean to close ourselves off to the world. I mean we need to get close to the Lord by dwelling in his shelter and reading his word. We need to spend time in his presence so we can be girded with the truth and we can use it in our lives. We will not get by with just the clothes on our backs. We need some serious armor that can only come from Jesus. It will not magically appear. We have to pray to receive it and follow the General’s orders- the Holy Spirit is a gentle General, but a wise one.

This is not the season to fret. It’s not the season to be anxious. It’s the season to fight.

But you need the right weapons. I am participating in an intercession Read-A-Thon where I read and pray through scripture for an hour. A team of intercessors is praying every hour for our nation. The reading of scripture is emphasized in this type of intercession for one amazing reason as seen in the verse below!

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart,” Hebrews 4:12.

This means the Word of God is the best weapon we can use against the dark forces blanketing our nation right now. This is the season to USE THE WORD.

When I saw the numbering of the verse (Hebrews 4:12) one date immediately popped into my mind- APRIL 12, 1861, which is 4-12 as a calendar number.

April 12, 1861 (4-12) is the date the Civil War began!

America, the spiritual Civil War has begun. A physical one could be on it’s way. It’s the season to intercede with the right weapons.

Notice that the verse says, the word is a double edged sword that penetrates -even to dividing the soul and spirit!

Our nation is completely divided right now. We need the Word to sift our hearts. Instead of letting Satan divide us, we need the Word to divide our soul and spirit.

The Civil War began at 4:30 a.m. and our first President George Washington was inaugurated on April 30, which is 4-30 as a date. The numbers are the same. We are at a critical season in our nation’s history. Will it be Civil War or democracy?

No matter what happens we must keep on interceding. The new year is here, but God holds the future. The best thing we can do is be in tune with what he’s doing, and what he’s going to do.

Oh I’ve got one more epiphany for you! Remember how I said Trump’s birthday is June 14- or 6-14? Well guess what is written in Genesis 6:14?

“So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.”

I’d like to add that this is the FIRST time the word ARK is used in the Bible. And this is the first verse where God tells Noah to build the ark.

Get on the Ark America! We are safe with Jesus, even as the waters rise.
