Five 2018 Eclipses – Mid Shemittah Cycle – 3rd year
Six 2020 Eclipses – Sixth Shemittah cycle
ISRAEL’S 70 YEARS with JERUSALEM
JERUSALEM DAY celebrated MAY 14, 2018 * 29 IYYAR 5778
I’ve been preparing a book, ‘The Yood of Elohim (Hand of God). Today, is July 6 2015 and as I looked for articles that pertained to this moment in time and this one caught my attention and now I know why.
The title of this article should convey to us that God shows up in patterns and he shows up according to the Shemittah’s plan.
Israel will be 70 years old in 2018. Just scratching this big surface, IsraEL has come through such severe sifting that she will see REST. REST is a BIG word and it only comes from perseverance.
Jerusalem was recaptured in 1967 ONLY by SIX days of miracles. Jerusalem will have completed 50 years in 2018. May 14, 2018 she will celebrate 51 years. She has completed a JUBILEE.
Thus, we know she has a REST in her JUBILEE. It is the third (3rd) Shemittah cycle for this REST and completed Jubilee. Scroll down and read the scripture I’ve quoted as to the instruction God has given them. This scripture is telling us that the world will bring their tithes in the third year to feed the priests (Israel) and those grafted into her (the stranger that desires to worship the their same God) and to feed the widow and the children because they do not own any land. The priests (us) are grafted into IsraEL. The Jew is to live in the land and set it apart…make it holy to the LORD. The land does specific things that the land outside IsraEL does not participate in.
Could it be that we are seeing PEACE in the third year of the 7-year tribulation period? Scripture teaches about a false peace but there will be a PEACE….even though it does not last.
I believe God’s chosen will be present on the earth to see wrath. We are later called out to go to war coming back on white horses to participate in a war, not peace. After this war there will be peace on the earth in which Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus) will reign from Jerusalem, the capitol of the world. This reign will last 1000 years and then the ultimate destruction of Satan will occur.
There are wars and rumors of wars as we see in great number today. I do believe we are living in the end days. I also believe that these battles and days of peace will line up on God’s schedule according to His Shemittah cycles. This is what I am seeing as I rework this article. I will also be posting about Hybrid and Tetrad eclipses with their value to our learning from them.
1492 – Columbus sailed the ocean blue…
Four consecutive Total lunar eclipses is known as a Tetrad. Tetrads are a rare set of eclipses. They were also occurring at the time Columbus set sail in 1492. He had Jews on board as they were forced to leave Spain by Tammuz 29, 1492. Many would leave nine days later with Columbus on The Fast of Av 9. That year the ‘Tetrad’ signaled their departure into the distant world of the Americas and other nations. It drew them further into the world…not back to their original homeland. Columbus’ tetrad occurred on The Lord’s Feasts Days of Passover (Nissan 14) and The Feast of Tabernacles (Tishrei 15). The same will be true for the next tetrads we’ll learn about.
IsraEL became a nation in 1948. They were at war immediately with Egypt and her neighbors. Her rest came in the tetrad of 1949, 1950 which once again occurred on Pesach, Nissan 14 and The Feast of Tabernacles, Tishrei 15.
Another Tetrad occurred when they won Jerusalem in 1967. The 1492, 1949, 1967 Tetrads all signaled the ‘saving’ of IsaEL and now Jerusalem. The Tetrad Mystery is that they each fell on The Lord’s Feasts. Passover is for all people accepting Messiah Yeshua as LORD and then The Feast of Tabernacles is for all people who desire Him to reign as king. These are The Lord’s Feasts…not The Jews Feasts. Our Creator Adonai is calling all men to Himself, but through a set-apart people, the Hebrew.
Now….what are we to think of the ‘Tetrad’ of which we are participating in right now in 2014 and 2015? It is the last one for perhaps a thousand years in which a tetrad will occur on Pesach and The Feast of Tabernacles. Is this some type of signal that we don’t want to miss? God tells us that we can know the times if we are ‘watching’. As a set-apart person who studies the book of God and the ways of God…you will NOT be deceived but realize God is ‘calling out’ to join Him in Torah (His instructions).
When people look at eclipse charts put on the Gregorian calendar, they don’t see God Mo’eds (appointments.) We must check to see if these happenings have anything to do with God’s calendar. Remember, God has a reason for everything he has set in place.
Tetrads are unusual in that they are four consecutive lunar eclipses. But, this last set is even more interesting as they are following another larger cycle. An eclipse operates in a Saros cycle. These cycles come to a close after perhaps a 1000 years…a long time. These tetrads are occurring in greater number as the Hebrew calendar is coming to the end of it’s calendar year. The first month is Tishrei where the king is announced. The last month is known as Elul and it is portrayed as the ‘King is in the Field’ to know his subjects. We see this portrayed in the story of David when he takes his bride Abigail from Nabel.
We are living in the same time-frame in history as Elul eclipses draw on these tetrads to come to a close. It will soon be Tishrei that we begin again with our King Messiah on earth. He is the ultimate ‘hybrid’ that will put the government on His shoulders as God living with us. Remember, God in human flesh can be seen and God in spirit contains all the attributes to be God over all. When we say that God is One, it means that he contains all the attributes to be God. He is NOT the god being prayed to by Hinduism, Muslim or any other religion. He has set himself apart (holy) to those following His instructions known as The Torah…brought to us through a set-apart people, the Hebrew known as Jews today.
Elul is the last month of the Civil Hebrew calendar and these ‘last of days’ tetrads are following the same ‘coming to a close’ scenario. There are more of them happening and yet they still follow their own cycle of coming to a close.
I have a grasp of tetrads and The Lord’s Feasts as I’ve studied this since 2007. So, what I wanted to know is, What does our Creator have in mind at the time of ISRAEL’S 70TH ANNIVERSARY and the 50th Jubilee JERUSALEM? Both of these wars had miracles involved and they will be celebrated in 2018.
2018 – FIVE eclipse. Three consecutive partial solar eclipses and two lunar eclipse. Their Hebrew dates should be considered as very important to us.
On 28 Sivan, June 15, 2015 it was reported that the US Supreme Court agreed with President Obama that the president determines what goes on a passport. Obama has determined that Jerusalem is not the capitol of Israel. I believe Adonai would disagree with the United States president. Mr. Obama quotes scripture and read it to the people as if he were speaking of himself being God. He tells us that he prays five times a day in his busy schedule. (He is telling us he is Muslim.) He believes he looks just like a Pharaoh whose tomb he visited. He told that the public that his wife told him that he was a Messiah to the people. He had a Jewish kappa put on his head because his mother is a Jew. It seems he already is all things to all people. But, for him to believe he is acting as God? …does fit the scriptures defining an anti-Christ.
God won it in 1967 on the sixth day. Egypt had given up and then changed their mind. It was on that last day that the IDF claimed Jerusalem. And now Mr. President defies Israel’s booty from the 1967 6-Day War of miracles? He defies the God of the Jew and Christian…the living God! Mr. Obama is in direct conflict with the Creator of our universe. It will be on that last day that God will reclaim all His children.
Israel became a nation on June 4, 1948 as they were attacked immediately from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, etc. Nineteen years after becoming a nation IsraEL lays claim to Jerusalem in The 1967 Six-Day War. Nineteen years is the duration of a lunar cycle.
1. JERUSALEM DAY May 14, 2018 completes 51 years
It completes a JUBILEE!
2. IsraEL as a Nation 1948 completes 70 years
It symbolizes REST and completion
Deuteronomy 14:28 “At the end of every third year you bring out all the tithe of your increase of that year and store it up within your gates.”
I’ll let you finish the verse, but God is telling them to bring the tithe of the third crop to feed the Levite priests, the sojourners (people who want Israel’s God), the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates. Each of these have no land to benefit from and God wants them to be cared for without any resentment. Yahweh ends the verse saying that He will bless them for doing this.
Pattern and Principle: Feed others and be fed by Yahweh; Blessing or Cursing
These eclipses are a reminder of God’s instruction since they occur during the third Shemittah cycle in which they bring out the tithe. If this is a picture of the Mid-wrath (tribulation) of the 7-year Tribulation period, we should be paying attention. God always works in a 7-year Shemittah cycle. His examples of when and what to bring to the tabernacle or temple has implications on his end-time plan for the returning of our Messiah. We must learn more of what this third year means.
God’s Mo’eds (appointed seasons) were made for men. It tells us that in Genesis 1. They were designed for celebrations. Those that don’t come miss the celebrations. You choose…always a choice.. And, He states that He will say, “I never knew you.” Many have prophesied in His name. Prophesy is simply telling people what God has has said. So, these are people that quote the bible. They know enough to talk about God, but they aren’t doing Torah so they can not direct people in the ways of Torah. They are in love with God’s grace and don’t think God’s laws are valid for today. They have removed Torah from their lives. People can not discern the times because they don’t know the appointed times of God. The Lord’s Feasts teach us about the ‘end of days.’

January 6 2019 Partial Solar – 4th Shemittah cycle, 29 Tevet
First things first!
It’s not fair to just show you the 3rd Shemittah year cycle without knowing ‘the first of the story’ in the 2nd cycle. Here we go………
AUGUST 2, 2018 - AV 10 – Total Lunar Eclipse – 2nd Shemittah cycle
THIRTEENTH Anniversary of 2005 Gaza Expels 8500 Jews to make way for terrorists. It’s the AV 9 Fast. Google the Fast of AV. 10 Spies reject the land God chose for them. Israel rejects Gaza 2005 giving to PA. Does God get mad? Hmm!
Two temples destroyed this day, 1290 Jews AD kicked out of Europe, 1492 AD Jews kicked out of Spain with Columbus helping. Does the year sound familiar? Columbus sailed the oceans blue and his boat is full of Jews with all ports rejecting them. Horrible! 1914 WWI Breaks out, Germany went into bankruptcy paying the war debt which then brings on WWII with the holocaust. Not a good day, folks!
Six ECLIPSES – 4 Solar, 2 Lunar 2018
1 of 6 Solar Eclipses in 3rd Shemittah Year
JANUARY 31, 2018 – Shevat 30 – Solar Partial Eclipse – 3rd Shemittah Cycle. Watch this!!!! On this day it is Rosh Chodesh, Head of Month. In 2009 Obama repeats the Isaiah 9:10 curse written about in, The Harbinger. In 1938 Banda Sea earthquake . The day before, on Shevat 29, it is Yom Kippur Katan (Little Day of Judgment). In 1918 the First Hebrew Woman’s league was formed in NYC. In 2013 a 7.1 Earthquake shakes Solomon Island. The day after Shevat 30 is 1 Adar. An entire Turkish City is wiped out. Judgment is a strong indication here especially with Shevat 24 before the day Zechariah 1 describes the Four Horsemen being sent to the four corners of the earth to see if there is God’s peace or man’s peace on the earth. If men are not seeking God’s peace, then artisans are sent to remove men’s peace from the earth.
2 of 6 Solar Eclipses in 3rd Shemittah Cycle
FEBRUARY 15, 2018 – Solar Partial Eclipse
Tu B’Shevat (15 Shevat) Year 3 of Shemittah Cycle
Tu B’Shevat is a very SPECIAL day of giving thanks to God for the produce of the earth such as trees that sustain man. This is incredible to see a partial eclipse happening on it. Is this a signal to recognize the children’s thanks or is it judgment for the devastation man has done to God’s earth. I would like to think there is a good side to everything.
History of 15 TuB ‘Shevat:
1971 – 3 consecutive total LUNAR eclipses (2018-2019 will have 4 consecutive SOLAR eclipses (2 Total, 4 Partial).
14 Shevat, day before:
1971 – 6.5 Greater Los Angles (3 lunar eclipses in 1971)
7.5 earthquake 325 years ago Italy lost 60,000 souls.
1938 Philippine earthquake on Sabbath
1948 8.2 Philippines 70th Anniversary
2011 7.2 Pakistan
I imagine these quakes brought many people to their knees in prayer on Tu B’Shevat, 15 Shevat.

The last of the four consecutive partial solar eclipses occurs January 6, 2019. It’s goes into the 4th Shemittah cycle. It is Shevat 29 and Yom Kippur Katan (Day of little judgment).

3 of 4 July 2, 2019 – SIVAN 29 – Yom Kippur Katan – Eve Rosh Chodesh
4th Shemittah cycle
TWELVE SPIES search out the land of Canaan. They should have seen where the Four giants of the earth were buried (Abraham, Sara, Issac and Rebecca along with Adam and Eve), but they only saw the giants of Gaza like we do today.
God was not happy about their journey because Jehovah told them, GO IN…but they had to see for themselves…they didn’t trust what Yahweh had prepared for them Deut 1:22. Their fear caused them to wonder another forty years, and the original parents did not cross over except for two: Joshua and Caleb; the two that voted, ‘YES’.
1917 Two Solar Eclipses in one day – One was a partial for a short span.
1928 8.1 Mexico Yom Kippur katan (Day little judgment)
1972 – 7.8 Yom Kippur Katan

4 of 4 December 26, 2019 – Kislev 28 Total Solar – Chanukah Day 4 –
5th year Shemittah cycle.
The day before is Kislev 27 when Noah’s waters stopped after 40 days and nights.
1946 Japan 8.1 earthquake 1 year to the day of Pearl Harbor attack
1 of 2 June 21, 1920 – SIVAN 29 – Total Solar – Yom Kippur Katan again
5th Shemittah Cycle.
TWELVE SPIES GO OUT this day. Same Hebrew day Sivan 29. Reference July 2, 2018.
2 of 2 Dec 14, 2020 Lunar – Kislev 27 – Chanukah Day 3 –
6th Shemittah Cycle
- Noah’s water stopped after forty days and nights. Same identical day on Hebrew calendar as December 26, 2019 Total Solar. This is a Total Lunar instead of a Total Solar eclipse. Interesting how Yahweh has us looking to His celebrations of Chanukah and keeps them as peaceful as possible.
In the month of Kislev we see, to the day, that Japan hit the United States on December 7, 1941, God issued Japan a large earthquake on December 7, 1944. God is our Avenger and does NOT forget the persecuted.
God has scheduled these appointments with us since he set up the Universe. He has revealed these times to us.
2014-2015 Six eclipse: 4 Total Lunar Eclipses (Tetrad) and two solar eclipse on Lord’s Feasts
2015 – Four: Solar: Mar 20, Sept 13; lunar eclipses, April 4, Sept 28
2016 – Four: Solar: Mar 9, Sept 1, Lunar: Mar 23, Sept 16
2017 – Four: Solar: Feb 26, Aug 21, Lunar: Feb 11, Aug 7
2018 has Five eclipses – 3 Partial Solar Eclipses and two lunar eclipses, three years after 2014-2015 Tetrad.
2018 – Five: Solar: Feb 15, Jul 13, Aug 1, Lunar: Jan 31, Jul 27
2019 has FOUR eclipse: Solar: Jan 10, July 16; Lunar: Jan 21, July 16
2020 has Six eclipse: 4 Solar Penumbral, 2 Lunar– Annular, Total
Solar: Jun 21, Dec 14; Lunar: Jan 10, Jun 5, July 5, Nov 30
I close now with finding 2020 perhaps more interesting than 2018. The 6th Shmittah cycle closes with SIX eclipse. The Sixth cycle is about double and triple portions. These portions will be in blessing or cursing.
The year really begins in Tishrei and ends in Elul. These dates are January to January. Let’s look to see what the Hebrew calendar looks like.
January 10 – 13 Tevet
June 5 – 13 Sivan
July 5 – 13 Tammuz
Nov 30 – 14 Kislev
Jun 21 – Sivan 21 – Yom Kippur katan Sunday
Dec 14 – Kislev 28 – Chanukah Day 4
September 6, 2021 will be the Day of Remission – Elul 29
September 7 is Rosh Hoshanna – New Year – Feast of Trumpets – Shemittah year begins
2020, my friends, may be more interesting than all the rest. I believe Issac Newton saw this year as being special concerning the return of Messiah as well. He understood eclipses and was born at the height of ‘Hybrid’ eclipses. I hope to write on that next.
Which Shemittah cycle do you see Messiah returning?
