SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Annular solar eclipse on February 26, 2017 – Ring of fire around the Moon. 

There’s going to be an annular solar eclipse on Feb. 26, 2017.

Although this month’s eclipse is not visible in the United States, it’s kicking off the six-month countdown until the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, the first visible in the US since 1979.

So what’s an annular solar eclipse?

When the Moon covers the Sun’s center, leaving the Sun’s visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire”, or annulus around the Moon, an annular solar eclipse happens.

An annular solar eclipse occur only:

Around a new Moon when the Earth and Sun are aligned on opposite sides of the Moon.

The Moon and Sun must be near a lunar node forming an almost perfect line between the Sun, the Moon, and Earth.

Astrology and Annular Eclipse

This annular solar eclipse is located in Aquarius Constellation. But, due to precession of the equinoxes, the eclipse actually falls within the Pisces sign. Dominated by the spiritual planet Neptune, this particular eclipse can bring good fortune, and lasting happiness.

In order to get some of that fortune and happiness for yourself, use this time to focus on what you want to bring into your life and relationships. However, be careful not to fall into the trap of greed or selfishness by seeking things you don’t really need, as this could turn your good fortune into bad luck by the time the Aug. 21 solar eclipse arrives.

This is a time for adventure, to make new friends, and begin new relationships. If you’ve been feeling stuck the past few months, here’s your chance to chart your course for happiness.

This eclipse begins west of Southern Chile and ends over Angola, Zambia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Africa. A partial eclipse (a total of 1 minute and 22 seconds) will be visible over most of South America, Africa, and Antarctica.

LAWLESSNESS: MEXICO SEES 22 PERCENT RISE IN MURDERS IN 2016

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Homicides in Mexico rose by 22 percent in 2016, the government reported Friday, the highest rate of increase since the height of the drug war.

Official statistics released by the Interior Department show that Mexico had 20,789 homicides in 2016, compared to 17,034 in 2015.

Some states saw murders rise by dizzying levels. Homicides in the Pacific coast state of Colima more than tripled, and in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz they more than doubled.
Murders rose by 42 percent in the border state of Baja California, 30 percent in the border state of Chihuahua and 65 percent in the western state of Michoacan.

Security analyst Alejandro Hope said Friday the national rate of increase is the highest since 2010, when murders rose by 28 percent nationwide from 2009 levels.
“It could be a variety of things. It could involve the spreading fragmentation of criminal groups, it could the reactivation of conflicts between Sinaloa (cartel) and others, it could be the expansion of the Jalisco cartel,” Hope said.
Hope also said that the governorship elections held in 12 of Mexico’s 31 states in 2016 may have played a role. “There is a transition period, where the outgoing state police chiefs are no longer credible for the criminals,” either to make deals with them or crack down on the gangs.

Homicides largely fueled by drug violence peaked at 22,852 in 2011, and then declined, falling to 15,653 in 2014.

Trump Says He ‘Needs God Even More’ as President

During an interview with The Brody File on Friday, Donald Trump said he thinks he need God even more due to the office of the President of the United States as he now needs to deal with “questions of massive life and death.”
“Well, I’ll tell you what. I’ve always felt the need to pray. And you know that … So, I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more, because your decisions are no longer gee, I’m going to build a building in New York, or I’m going to do this. These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care,” Trump told CBN journalist David Brody.

Is a prophecy in Revelation 12 due for fulfillment this September? Rapture? 

I want to start this off by saying that I am in no way attempting to put a date on the rapture of the church neither am I a “date setter”. I am simply sharing this extremely fascinating information that has been brought to my attention. The astounding celestial events that are taking place on September 23 this year will be unprecedented. The event that will be taking place in the heavens this year points to a passage in scripture out of Revelation 12. 


WATCH VIDEO BELOW

The passage that correlates with the coming celestial sign can be found in Revelation chapter 12. 

Revelation 12 (KJV)

1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

To put it into perspective, this event has only happened two other times in history which happened to be during the creation and during the birth of Christ. The exact way it will happen this year however, has not happened in 7000 years. 

Needless to say we are living in very strange times as well as very prophetic times. We’re living in an age where we are literally seeing fulfillment of prophecy almost weekly it seems. We are seeing prophetic signs everywhere from the increased amount of seismic activity with earthquakes and volcanoes, to the mass animal die offs globally, to the political scene and most importantly the current situation involving Israel and the Middle East which is outlined in detail in scripture. 

Several prominent YouTubers have expressed there intrigue in the amazing events that are about to take place in the heavens. They have taken the time to explain the events of September 23 in detail.  They too are in no way saying that a rapture of the church will take place on that date, however they are all in agreement that something major may take place. 

A great explanation of the event is well illustrated in this video made by Steve Cioccolanti. 

Regardless of what you may conclude from this video, as a Christian it is certainly something that should be closely considered as an extraordinary celestial phenomena that just so happens to coincide with the birth of Jesus Christ. 

REVIVAL: God Falls on 3,500 People, Igniting Transformational Revival That Can Change America

With the increasing opposition to the new administration and ongoing threats against conservative values, how do believers face the uphill battle to rebuild America? With the leftist agenda continuing its assault and the likelihood of increased spiritual warfare in the public arena, what is our best strategy for gaining ground and keeping it? Is there any model we can learn from that will give us clues for success? #Revival 


Thankfully, there is a small community in Kentucky that went through an amazingly similar journey to what we are now going through as a nation. Not only did they face years of government corruption and control, but they faced decades of generational addictions, crime and outright hatred towards one another. Their story of breakthrough and transformation should not only inspire but give some insights into how to approach this battle from a kingdom perspective.
The incredible transformation story of Manchester, Kentucky, has been seen by thousands in Sentinel Group’s documentary film, An Appalachian Dawn (2010). The story unfolds of a drug-infested, crime-ridden community steeped in cycles of hopelessness and despair due to corrupt governmental control. It was only when the “good folks” in town started to lose their kids to drug overdoses and suicide that people got desperate enough to pray. Following months of crying out to the Lord and pleading for heaven’s intervention, they marched through town to take a stand against the corruption and control.
When 63 pastors openly repented of their apathy and lack of leadership in the public park, something broke. The fear of the Lord fell upon the 3,500 people gathered, and the tangible presence of God moved in. Everyone present knew something had changed. What followed is an amazing testimony of how the fear of the Lord and the supernatural grace of God enabled the citizens to rise up and take back their county—little by little. Though it would take almost three years for all the corruption to be uncovered and crooked officials brought to justice, their community saw tangible results that drew international attention. Their process of transformation is something our nation can learn from. Their responses to the ongoing threats and their fearless actions against impossible odds is proof of God’s power to change and transform, not only a community, but a nation.
Doug Abner (Appalachian Center for Transformation) was a local pastor who helped lead the charge throughout Manchester’s transformation. He tells of how unbelief and fear had crippled the church prior to the march in 2004. Due to the years of corruption of local officials and the rigged election system, believers felt helpless in making any changes. The lack of unity among churches only strengthened the resolve of corrupt officials to intimidate and threaten anyone who challenged their agenda. Even so, Abner shares that the day after the march, these same believers, now emboldened in their faith, came together to do something radical.
Instead of launching campaigns against the officials or publicly decrying their unlawful deeds, these believers went to the offices of these city officials with gifts of potted plants and asked if they could pray for them. One of these corrupt officials had previously threatened a pastor and his church. To their amazement, this official called in his staff and allowed Abner to lead them in prayer. Years later, this same official would confess Jesus as Lord and ask for forgiveness. The fear of the Lord was so prevalent that those involved in illegal activities began to turn on each other. As believers continued to pray and work together, God battled on their behalf. Even as the opposition continued, churches in the community began to see a dramatic increase of salvations, and the favor of God came upon the local church. Their unified stand and resolve to do things God’s way was paying off.
Abner shares that the book of Nehemiah became their blueprint for how to rebuild their community. It started by not being swayed by the criticism of their opponents or giving in to the threats and insults (Neh. 4:7-9). Instead, they sought the Lord’s strategies, worked together and got involved. With permission from the state attorney general, Abner’s church began to televise previously closed-door courtroom proceedings for accountability to the public. In 2006, they championed a “Promote the Vote” campaign to encourage local citizens to run for office. The event ran all day as 130 ordinary citizens, many of them believers, ran for office. In 2007, a Christian woman was voted in as mayor, and the community saw even more dramatic changes as she, along with other newly elected officials, began to lead the city with godly wisdom and creative strategies for growth. Churches began to offer recovery programs for drug addicts and a Teen Challenge Center was established, where lifelong destructive cycles were broken.

Abner said it was not always easy. The first few years were a challenge, as many illegal activities continued even in the midst of revival. Even so, God’s tangible presence gave the people a fearlessness to confront the challenges. They didn’t get caught up in opinions and avoided any negative statements about their city. Realizing the power of their declarations and the impact of their witness, they chose their battles carefully. Pastors agreed to focus on the non-negotiables—”heaven and hell issues”—and let the other stuff go. They were intentional in seeking the Lord together, knowing the true power of unity in defeating their enemies.
Within a few years, Manchester became known as a “city of hope” and a testimony to the world of a transformed community. Not only were the people changed, but even the land began to produce again. Animals returned to the forests, and the water became drinkable. Crime went down, and jobs came back. The downtown landscape was beautified, and tourism began to flourish.
Manchester’s testimony should be a lesson for us in this nation. We are at a similar place of opportunity. We have seen God work on our behalf in this last election, and now, we must get involved. Rather than simply criticizing the opposition through social media, we need to act. God’s favor is already at work, and we must seize the opportunity to demonstrate the power of the kingdom through our witness and our work. It starts at the community level, where everyone can participate and make a difference.

The challenges before us are bigger than the White House. The engrained belief systems and mindsets of rebellion and godlessness must be shifted and displaced by a people of God’s power and presence. It is only as we step up and actively engage in our fields of influence that we can make any lasting difference for the kingdom.

The process of transformation for Manchester, as well as for America, is just as the Lord says in Exodus 23:30: “Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have become fruitful and inherit the land.”

PROPHECY ALERT: Did Obama Just Set Off Gog and Magog? 

“And it shall come to pass in that day that I will make Yerushalayim a stone of burden for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3 (The Israel Bible™) #ProphecyUnfolding #WarsAndRumorsOfWar #WWIII #WarDrums #GogAndMagog


Redemption advocate Eli Soble connected the US abstention from the latest anti-Israel vote in the UN Security Council to the advent of the great war of Messianic days in a video that has gone viral since its release on Facebook on December 26.

In this video which has been viewed more than 26,000 times, Soble asserts that it’s “a sign of redemption, a sign that Moshiach is close” that the nations are trying to take Jerusalem and Israel away from the Jewish people. 

“The great Jewish prophecy of Gog and Magog is…the last great barrier before we reach redemption, and it’s appearing, it’s materializing, right before our eyes,”Soble announced.

He mentioned a recent news article in Reuters about the upcoming Middle East peace conference scheduled for January 15 in France. Reuters stated that France will call together “some 70 countries” in Paris to discuss the situation in Israel. Soble explained that the Torah considers the phrase “70 nations” to symbolize all the nations of the world, even if the actual number exceeds 70.
Soble retold the Jewish teaching that Sennacherib was supposed to be Gog when he came against Jerusalem in the time of King Hezekiah. He called Sennacherib an avowed atheist and narcissist. Without actually pointing a finger directly, Soble made the point that President Obama’s recent move in the UN Security Council echoes the narcissistic flaw of Sennacherib.
The connection between Gog and Obama was made more directly in November 2015. Breaking Israel News published a viral news story about a 15 year-old Israeli boy named Natan who had a near-death experience. In a video interview, Natan, a previously secular student, returned from his experience quoting Biblical prophecy regarding the End of Days. In that video, Natan clearly named President Obama as Gog. 

Natan described his vision of Gog and Magog. “It’s going to be something that is called a very big war. And everybody – the whole world – will be involved in that war.. Everybody! All the goyim (nations), all the Arabs, everyone will come against the nation of Israel and will fight in that war.
“The person who will start the war will be somebody named Gog… I am certain of who it is. Obama. President Obama. He will be the one who starts that war.”
In his video about current events signaling the start of the war of Gog and Magog, Soble quoted the Lubavitcher Rebbe, arguably the most influential rabbi of the 20th century, who told us what to look for. “How do we know when it’s materializing? We’re going to see that there’s going to be military conflict all around Israel but it’s not going to touch Israel and it’s not going to touch Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).”

According to Soble, the Lubavitcher Rebbe also said that Psalm 2 is speaking about the war of Gog and Magog at the end of days.

Why are the nations in an uproar? And why do the peoples mutter in vain? Psalms 2:1

As Soble described it, “the nations will come up with a plan to take Eretz Yisrael (Israel) and Hashem (God) will thwart their plans and it will lead to the revelation of Moshiach (Messiah).”
Soble encouraged his viewers to understand that this UN vote, and the upcoming meeting in France, are part of the messianic process and not to be fooled into thinking they are purely political maneuvers.
He ends on an upbeat note, by reminding people that “Moshiach is very close, the redemption is very close. We have to take heart and be joyous and improve ourselves as much as we can… and add in goodness and kindness in the context of Moshiach.”
The video was part of an effort that Soble runs on his Facebook page “Visualizing Moshiach and Geula (redemption)”. The page, which was started in September 2016, provides a forum for him and others to post brief videos with positive messages about the forthcoming redemption.

About that effort, Soble told Breaking Israel News, “I believe it’s very important for us to express our voices cooperatively, together, about Moshiach and geula in a positive way. It helps us raise our own and the collective Jewish consciousness. This is one of the greatest tools we have to bring Moshiach and geula with the utmost chesed (lovingkindness) [and] to meet Hashem (God) in geula in the most prepared and upright fashion.”

Mysterious fireball disintegrates in the sky of Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador

A mysterious fireball was filmed exploding in different pieces in the sky over Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua at 04:30 UTC on December 28, 2016 (22:30 CST on December 27). #SignsInTheHeavens


Some witnesses report loud booms and up to seven flashes during the disintegration of the bright space rock. But was this a meteor or space junk?

The Salvadoran Association of Astronomy ASTRO said the brilliant fireball that surprised many Salvadorans tonight was also visible from Guatemala City and Managua.

Although officials and skywatchers agree the event was a meteor disintegrating, some say -like me – the slow nature of the strange event indicates a possible space debris coming back to Earth. It was indeed observed for more than 30 seconds.
