100-Year-Old Jewish Prophecy Predicts Solar Eclipse Portends Destruction of North Korea
An esoteric prophecy written over a century ago described the solar eclipse that will traverse the entire United States next week and predicted, in shocking detail, what the astronomical event portends for the outcome of the current North Korean-US conflict. The total solar eclipse’s timing is meaningful according to the Jewish calendar. Incredibly, it comes precisely at the beginning of a Hebrew month – Elul – singled out in a Jewish source as having significance for the specific political situation the US is facing today with Eastern aggressors.
“The prophecy states that when a solar eclipse occurs exactly as it will next week, in the beginning of the month of Elul, kings of the East will suffer great loss,” Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, revealed of the century-old text Yalkut Moshe (“Collection of Moses”). Just a few hours after the path of darkness departs the coast of South Carolina and the sun sets, the Hebrew month of Elul begins, ushering in a 40-day period of repentance corresponding to the period Moses spent on Mount Sinai repenting for the Jewish People.
The Feast of Trumpets...
The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. (Leviticus 23:23-25)
I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:50-52)
According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord,will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18)

The Lord designed the 7 major Jewish feasts around a lunisolar calendar. A lunisolar calendar is a calendar in many cultures whose date indicates both the moon phase and the time of the solar year.
The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies. (Leviticus 23:1-2)
Beginning in the spring, the seven Jewish feasts are Passover (Pesach), the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Firstfruits, the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah), the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).
The Jewish feasts are closely related to Israel’s spring and fall harvests and agricultural seasons. They were to remind the Israelites each year of God’s ongoing protection and provision. But, even more importantly, they foreshadowed the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Not only did they play significant roles in Christ’s earthly ministry but they also symbolize the complete redemptive story of Christ, beginning with His death on the cross as the Passover Lamb and ending with His second coming after which He will “tabernacle” or dwell with His people forever.
August 21st: The Total Solar Eclipse: A Time to Reflect and Repent...
Have you heard the news? A total solar eclipse will take place across the continental United States on August 21st. This hasn't happened in almost a century.
On this date, about 60% of the sun will be covered resulting in semi-darkness around parts of the United States. From parts of the Pacific Northwest to South Carolina, if you live within about a 60-mile radius of the total solar eclipse, you may see firsthand as the sky goes dark and the temperature drops. The eclipse should last for an estimated 2 1/2 minutes.
Can you go blind by watching a total solar eclipse?
The danger with a total eclipse is that you can indeed go blind by watching one directly. How? As the full eclipse takes place, your eyes will adjust to the dark surroundings. When you have a sudden burst of light following this, it can damage and harm the eyes.
Is God trying to give us a sign of some sort?
Historically, people have used the heavens, the stars, weather, and sun to look for signs from God. According to Pastor Mark Blitz, a total solar eclipse can be a warning sign to those in its path. It happened to Jonah with Nineveh and before World War I. For Christians, it's a good sign about the end times. Read Joel and Revelation. It's also a sign to pray, repent, and witness to others about Christ.
If you look at this eclipse, it's exactly 40-days (the 1st day of the month of Elul) until Yom Kippur. Jonah's eclipse may not be a coincidence. It happened again in 1914 when war was threatened from June of that year until August. Because these are the end times, scientists and Bible scholars are taking note of the "sign of the times." You see, a month after the eclipse, we start the Days of Awe. This is from Rosh Hashanah which is on Tishri 1 until Yom Kippur on Tishri 10. Some anticipate that a great sign of God can come in September in the celestial signs.
We originally posted this message on October 1, 2016, based on a dream I had on September 27, 2016. We're repeating the message here. The details describe a dream I had about an earthquake coming to New York. Whether it's an actual earthquake or the shaking from God's coming judgment, I cannot say, but I will repost the dream and message as I had it...
REPOST: Must Read and Please Share: This is not to make anyone afraid, but be aware and look at the disaster preparedness for earthquakes. I had a dream 3-nights ago about an earthquake hitting New York. In the dream, I was in an apartment building. Things started moving slowly so it was surreal because people were going about their day as usual so they didn't see the warning signs. Then things started to shake. I saw an apartment that had wooden stairs and they literally shifted off their foundation. The concern was when the shifting occurred, what would they hit? Would people be crushed?
I also saw people running to the elevator, but that's wrong because the power can fail and they can be crushed if lines are cut. There was also concerns over things falling overhead and I saw huge chandeliers and beams of wood. In the dream as I hunkered down while things shook, I heard a voice say that this was only the start and it was going to get worse.
