To begin, the significance is not in the blood moon itself but in the fact that it occurred on a feast day. It is also significant that the Hebrew month Nisan started on the first of the Gentile month.
Before we get into this I want to make it clear this is not an end of the world post. We are not to look at everything that happens through the lens of the end. I believe the enemy’s greatest tool is to get us focused on the end so we don’t do the work of the Kingdom.
Scripture makes it clear that no man knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return, Christ Himself does not even know. In looking at this sign I believe it is appropriate to take it as a sign and a “heads up” if you will for a coming move of the Spirit.
I went to bed last night and could not go to sleep because I knew at 2:15am I had my alarm set to go off so that I could get up and go outside and see the moon and spend time waiting before the Lord.
Feast days are “appointed times” to meet with God. There are “set times” each year on G-ds calendar (the Hebrew calendar) for us to meet with Him.
In Genesis twenty eight a dream Jacob had is recorded, he saw a ladder from heaven and angels ascending and descending. 28:16-17 NASB “Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” (17) 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.”
Psalm 24:6-10 NASB “This is the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face- even Jacob. Selah. (7) Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? (8) The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. (9) Lift up your heads, O gates, And lift them up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! (10)Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.”
The appointed times on His calendar are gates or doors of times when revelation will flow easy to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
When I went outside this morning I first began by asking my heart to be cleaned of all impurity through repentance. I then asked that I would have eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit of the LORD had to say during this season, from Passover to Pentecost.
Many believers are treating this as just a cool moon we must recognize the fact we are standing under an open heaven during this feast time and the Spirit of the LORD wants to bring revelation. This why I was awake, this is why I went outside, I knew that during the time of the blood moon a special gate of revelation would be open and I did not want to miss it, a special gate is still open during this eight day feast time.
I stood outside for thirty to forty five minutes or so and came back in. When I laid down I knew I was to continue waiting on the Lord.
Two words came this morning and that is what I want to share with you.
The first thing I heard in my spirit was this. “SEEK my face and get out of tunnel vision. The body gets focused on one part of what I am doing and does not see the whole picture. Take the blinders off, come together as a whole body, denominations unite and see my whole picture.”
When He finished speaking I just began to ponder that word and I knew when we focus on a certain way He moves or even our favorite teaching that has the potential to distract us from what He is doing as a whole and worse yet gets our eyes off Him and on to His THINGS.
We are in a season now to whole heartily seek His face and hear Him speak.
The second word I heard came through a video I turned on of Dutch Sheets relating a dream about going back to our roots.
In order to have victory in the future we must pull from the past. Everything should build upon the last thing. No generation should have to start from scratch but run with what the previous generation left them.
Later on in the morning I saw a tweet from Seedbed saying they are undertaking a new project to release the lesser known works of John Wesley. This will help us get back to our roots!
We need to read biographies of the great men and women who have gone before us. We need to read their sermons and their books. We must connect with the generations gone by in order for us to walk in all that God has for us. God used men and women from the past to restore great truths we cannot discard that.
We are in a season when the Spirit is speaking and He is going to move the only way we can be a part of that is if we have eyes to see and ears to here.
Pray as I did this morning, Lord give me your eyes to see how you see, give me ears to hear, give me wisdom and revelation so I know how you are moving and I how I am supposed to move in this time.
Do not take this season lightly, do not blow it off. Turn your eyes to Jesus, knock, seek, and ask. Be ready for we are beginning to enter one of the greatest seasons we have ever known.
