I am going to use this minor feast to illustrate one passage from Joel 2. April 8, 2024 will be a spectacular date where every news outlet will carry as a headline. It shall be one week before the IRS demands for our tax return deadline. Heck, the news may even disrupt the 2024 election campaigns. But spiritually speaking, no news may be reporting that we shall come to the maturity date of the seven year of call to repentance from God to Earth. The first Total Solar Eclipse that was dubbed the Great American Eclipse happened in August of 2017. The pair of them form the bookends to the Seven Year of God’s call to repentance in America.
2024 shall be an election year too upon the last year in the Trump-Pence administration. The airways and the internet will be filled with campaign items from the Democrats trying to win back the White House. It shall be the usual fare such as all things under the guises of socialism, thefts, human trafficking, extending murders of human beings by legal abortions up to infancy, universal healthcare and amnesty. Some people will be sick of it. People who cry for the justice of those who are murdered and for the righteousness of the heavens will call for judgment upon the advocates, the supporting choirs and the executioners. Maybe trans-humanism will get a wake up call. Those who practice perversity and GLADly wear the mark of the beast by the selling of their human birthrights will come to see the price tags of their influences.
In Shemot 12, the LORD instructed Moshe to name Abib to be the head of the months. In so instruction, we come to understand the cycle begins upon the New Moon in the spring month of Abib. There may be something mighty about to happen to America, and for that matter, perhaps even the world in a domino sense, on that date. I believe it shall be a visual sign for something so yuuge that we cannot ignore it. God is calling attention to repentance from all the wicked and selfish deeds that are being done. Do you believe His will? He warns every time before the promise is shown.
The day of each month where the New Moon is sighted is called Rosh Chodesh. April 8, 2024 is Rosh Chodesh Abib. It just so happens that the second member of the Two Great American Eclipses will come visit us upon the shores of America. The totality, where the sun shall become totally blacked out by the shadow of the moon, will cross the USA from Mexico into the state of Texas, and exit off the east coast into east coast of Canada. Piedras Negras is a city and seat of the surrounding municipality of the same name in the Mexican state of Coahuila. It is south of San Antonio, one of the dozens of sanctuary cities. The three countries of the new NAFTA treaty, USMCA, are all touched by the totality. Isn’t that quite an acknowledgement by the Creator of the Universe?
(Words of Christ in red)
6Wail, for the day of the LORD is near;
as destruction from the Almightyc it will come!
7Therefore all hands will be feeble,
and every human heart will melt.
8They will be dismayed:
pangs and agony will seize them;
they will be in anguish like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at one another;
their faces will be aflame.
9Behold, the day of the LORD comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and to destroy its sinners from it.
The sign of the Day of the Lord shall be given by unmistakable works of nature, not wrought by the hand of man.
10For the stars of the heavens and their constellations
will not give their light;
the sun will be dark at its rising,
and the moon will not shed its light.
The purpose of this sign is given below, for the sake of a day of accountability.
11I will punish the world for its evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity;
I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant,
and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.
12I will make people more rare than fine gold,
and mankind than the gold of Ophir.
13Therefore I will make the heavens tremble,
and the earth will be shaken out of its place,
at the wrath of the LORD of hosts
in the day of his fierce anger.
There are half a dozen other places that predict the time before the Day of the Lord with darkened suns. Those verses surprisingly and contrary to popular opinion, do not predict the “actual” day of the Lord.
But when those days coincide with Hebrew dates, we get the context of the appointment – The Word of God carries a significance.
April 8 2024 shall be the Rosh Chosdesh Abib, a new year begins upon the head of the months. On that day the moon will not give out her light due to conjunction and the sun will be darkened by the Total Eclipse over Mexico, America and Canada. Below in verse 10, the Word says the sun and the moon shall become dark. We know that is not a possible combination on a night of total lunar eclipse because the sun will be fully reflected on the surface of the moon while the shadow of the earth shall pass directly over the moon. However, this verse can be fulfilled on a day of total solar eclipse because the moon must necessarily be in conjunction, thus fulfilling the moon becoming dark and it won’t be reflecting the light that comes from the sun, which shall be eclipsed by the shadowing of the moon in her totality.
10 Before them land quakes,
sun and moon become dark,
stars withdraw their brightness.[e]
11 Adonai utters His voice before His army.
For His camp is very vast—
for mighty is it that carries out His word.
For great is the day of Adonai—[f] very terrifying!
Who can endure it?
Shall mankind repent toward God and turn to Him and walk in His ways?
12 “Yet even now”
—it is a declaration of Adonai—
“turn to Me with all your heart,
with fasting, weeping and lamenting.”
13 Rend your heart, not your garments,
and turn to Adonai, your God.
For He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, abundant in mercy,
and relenting about the calamity due.
14 Who knows? He may turn and relent,
and may leave a blessing behind Him
—so there may be a grain offering
and a drink offering for Adonai, your God.
So we shall repent before it is past the hour.
