Blood Red Moons and the One Who Left with a Bag of Money

When it comes to the Lord's appointment book, every key event both future and past is shrouded in mystery. When was Jesus born? Ask around and see if there's any consensus. If it weren't shrouded, such an important event would surely have extensive and indisputable documentation leading to consensus on the date. How about the dating of the great flood? Same deal. You see, it serves the Lord's purposes to conceal the calendar. It's like the key to a private play book in competitive sport when the game is still in play. Knowing the truth about the time line of history both past and future is privileged information that is granted only to the trustworthy. The Lord Himself watches over it intently as the keeper of secrets and the revealer thereof. His schedule of appointments is guarded as priceless treasure. It can well be said that the success of His plan is contingent upon it.

Because it is so, I'm always thrilled to see the secrets unfolding among us as promised, revealing the season that rushes upon us with its critical hours, great trials and transitional events - the fulfilling of our bright hope! What I want to share in this post was prompted by an interaction with my dear friend Aaron, who received precious insight as the Lord was taking him through the Proverbs recently. He observed how the woman being referenced in the early chapters was both Jezebel and Mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots. In sharing what the Lord "lit up" for him, it was obviously at the Lord's prompting that he asked me about the following passage.

18) “Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses.
19) “For my husband is not at home, He has gone on a long journey;
20) He has taken a bag of money with him, At the full moon he will come home.”
Proverbs 7:18-20

As he spoke it I knew it was vivid confirmation to him that he had been receiving from the Lord's bountiful treasure and to me, also, of the timing of the revealing of the lawless one on the 13th day of the first month! In this writing titled When Will the Lawless One be Revealed? I opened with the following.

"Students of history have for a long time observed that events with similar themes tend to occur on anniversaries of the same day, as accounted on the Lord's calendar. In keeping with this trend, you will discover in this study that the revealing of the lawless one is foreshadowed in events that each occurred on the thirteenth day of the first month!"

Given the evidence provided in that study it seems obvious (to those whose who have been granted the appropriate "security clearance") that the appearance of the Beast John saw rising out of the sea (Revelation 13:1) is appointed for this day on the annual calendar, in the Lord's accounting. It is obvious to anyone who considers the phases of the moon that this calendar that signals the beginning of a month with the first sighting of the crescent moon following the new moon presents the moon as full on the 13th or 14th day. The "husband" who comes home at the full moon is the antiMessiah Beast, who comes to his Jezebel Bride, Mystery Babylon the Great!

I present this table you see in the image to document how the moon is full on the 13th or 14th day. The table represents a small but adequate sampling.

When the moon isn't technically full as fully 100% illuminated, it still appears fully round on the 13th. As you see in the table, in January of 2011 the full moon didn't occur until late on the 14th day, yet, if you investigate more closely you will note that, on the 13th day, the sunset-to-sunset illuminated fraction of the moon ranged from 93.5%-97.9%, which is still plenty close enough to the appearance of full!

When the true Messiah comes, given the evidence for the day of His arrival, it will be on the 21st day of the lunar month. At that time, the lunar phase will be what's called "last quarter" which I like to call the Bride Theft moon!

It should be noted that the moon is itself a Messianic Bride symbol.

What does it mean that this Mystery Babylon's husband who will come home at the full moon has taken a bag of money with him?

He has taken a bag of money with him, At the full moon he will come home.”
Proverbs 7:20

Here we make the Judas connection. He had the bag of money that represented the earthly provision for the true Messiah and his disciples. He is a primary type of the lawless one who is distinctly identified with the full moon day!

This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
John 12:6

For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
John 13:29

"As we study the scriptural record of Judas Iscariot we find two outstanding events by which he is popularly known. These both 1) relate to his interaction with Jesus, 2) concern a revealing of identity and 3) occur on the 13th day of the first month. In the first event, while in the presence of his disciples at the last supper the Lord rather mysteriously identifies Judas as the one who would betray him. In the second, Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss that was the sign that revealed his identity to those who would arrest him. The author of the Bible draws our attention to these events in a manner of notably heightened drama. " (When Will the Lawless One be Revealed?)

When Lady Gaga sings in a current pop hit "Judas" (that she testified came through the portal with "Born This Way"), “Ooooooo I’m in love with Ju-u-das, Ju-da-as,” she is identifying her symbolic role as Mystery Babylon the Great and the Bride of Antichrist, and also the woman of Proverbs 7.

As having taken the bag of money with him, we may note in this the stranglehold of economic control he will have over the world.

16) He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17) so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:16-17

19) Then Herod went from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there a while. 20) He had been quarreling with the people of Tyre and Sidon; they now joined together and sought an audience with him. Having secured the support of Blastus, a trusted personal servant of the king, they asked for peace, because they depended on the king’s country for their food supply.
Acts 12:19b-20

(Herod appearing as a type of the Beast - see Passing Through the Iron Gate for more insight)

With this in mind, its worth noting that in 2015, the year the evidence I see suggests the lawless one will appear, the full moon of what will most likely be found as the first month (dependant, as ever, upon what is found while watching for the aviv barley - a Bride symbol) will involve an eclipse. Since the celestial lights are given for signs to mark seasons, moadim, appointed times, this should raise the level of alert!

It may well manifest as a blood red moon at that time. That seems likely to me as a fulfillment of some explicit prophecy. It seems quite appropriate that the heavenly "alarm clock" that is declared to have been appointed to work just this way should "go off" at the revealing of the lawless one, an event mimicking and countering the baptism of His only begotten son, the true Messiah!

30) And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
Joel 2:30-31

What makes that of even greater interest is the fact that this is quoted in a passage of scripture marking the beginning of this "church" age. This appears to be a symmetrical bookend-ing where what was testified at the beginning reveals the end, marking off the full age!

19) And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:
Acts 2:19-20

As to the sun being turned into darkness, the first day of the month of that lunar eclipse will feature a solar eclipse!

Pastor Mark Biltz has been widely promoting the coming eclipse schedule in connection with speculation about the timing of the Lord's coming. See Blood moon eclipses: 2nd Coming in 2015? - Minister uses NASA forecasting to study signals of Jesus' return. Biltz says, "You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth all in 2015." While it seems he doesn't yet have some of the background presented here, and I don't find those events very compelling as actual signs, I'm really excited to see how the Lord is bringing wider attention to the celestial timepiece!

Will Proverbs 7:20 be recognized in the appointed season as the prophetic sign described above? Don't bet against it! This is an awesome season of revelation, and the Lord is fulfilling His great and precious promises to those who love Him and keep His commandments!

I'll close with a presentation of upcoming celestial events, as clipped from Solar and Lunar eclipses of the decade - BecausetheNight.
