The sabbatical year 5775 starts on 9/25/14 and runs to 9/13/15. Obviously some of the eclipses are before and
after the sabbatical year; the first and last total lunar eclipses are “outside of and bookend” the sabbatical year. I
have never stated all the eclipses were in the sabbatical year.
I also never said there was a blood red moon that was part of a tetrad in 1948. I said it was in 1949 and 1950. In
regards to whether or not the eclipses were viewable in Israel, we have to realize the signs are for the nations, all
of them. Maybe having them seen in different parts of the world is so that no one is left with an excuse. I’m sure if
they were only seen in Israel someone would say then it doesn’t pertain to the nations!
Lu 21:24-28 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall
be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with
perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things
which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son
of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then
look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Regarding knowing "the day or the hour" scenario. I do not set dates and will not set dates. Closely looking at a
span of roughly 530 days is not date setting. First I would like to ask, what do you think this verse refers to in the
many events that will unfold during the tribulation? Does it refer to the day the tribulation begins, or when the
antichrist is revealed or when Messiah's feet land on the Mt of Olives, or the rapture and on and on? Does this
verse require us to put blinders on? I do know that the biblical holidays are the exact days when certain events
have happened (the Passover lamb, Messiah is the First Fruits, Shavuot or Feast of Weeks is Pentecost) and will
happen; but through every year's cycle of feasts, we don't know if it is a rehearsal or if it will be the real thing.
Why would he give us this forewarning that "there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars" if we
are not supposed to study it and know? If we don't know the biblical calendar then we will remain clueless as to
what God is doing. Get my feast dvd's to understand what each fall feast was a rehearsal for!

2 May 2008 - Based on some of the blogs out there, there is a lot of misinformation going around so let me
|Stipulating Eclipse Comments
Here is the layout of the eclipses and this is the chart I have always shown (it's been on the dvd since it was made
in March 2008):
The table below is another rendering of the events shown above, which hopefully clarifies the perception that this is
an astronomical (NOT astrological) connection:
||15 Nissan 5774
||14 Tishrei 5775
||29 Adar 5775
declared start of
||15 Nissan 5775
||29 Elul 5775
start of the
Jewish civil year
||15 Tishrei 5776
|From reading some of the blogs, I find people are really misunderstanding what I said and what I am trying to say. It
may be because of different definitions of terms. First off, concerning the rapture, never do I mention the word.
When I talk about the second coming I am not referring to the rapture but to Messiah’s feet landing on the Mt of
Olives in Zech 14. I am not setting dates for the rapture. The only dates I am giving is the dates NASA gives us for
eclipses and the dates God gives us on His calendar and then I bring in the connection. You can do whatever you
want according to your own theology with this information. With much humor I say, “Put it in your own theological
pipe and smoke it however you want.”
I did say, and again say, IF these eclipses in 2015 are what the Lord was referring to, then 2015 would look like a
possible year for His feet to land on the Mt of Olives. And, IF this is true then the tribulation could, not would, start
this fall at the Feast of Trumpets, (which technically is 2 days long: KJV Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour
knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only). In light of all the prophetic events going on,
I would say it is likely but I’m not saying definitely. As far as the rapture, if you’re pretrib then 2008 could be
interesting, if you’re midtrib, 2012 could be interesting, if you’re prewrath then 2014 might be interesting, if you’re
a posttribber then 2015 might be interesting and if you’re amillennial just sit back and watch the show!
If you want my own personal view of the rapture it is this:
It’s not even on my radar! I’m not focused on it, I am focused on the mission at hand. I will work till Messiah
comes. Believe me He will take whoever He wants to take, whenever He wants to take them and no one will
lose points for being wrong. If your house is on fire and you escape are you satisfied that you are out or will you
do all you can to get your children out as well? With any fire there are people rushing out and firemen rushing in.
I guess it depends on what you feel you’re calling is. I don’t remember who, but someone said (and now in a
“Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell;
but I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell!”That is my motto. If the Lord wants to keep me here during the tribulation on a mission run, I’m happy to stay. If
He wants me out, then I’m happy to go! It’s not my will or rapture theology that will take me or leave me but His
After the sin of the golden calf God told Moses to go on and take the children of Israel into the Promised Land,
but He wasn’t going. Moses said, “Hey! If you ain’t goin, we ain’t goin!” So what God told Moses next, you only
notice in Hebrew not in English. God said, “Okay I’ll go with you” but Moses said that is not good enough. The
reason is that the word “you” was in the singular not the plural. So in effect God was saying He would go with
Moses but not the children of Israel. Moses, even though God was going to be with him, was not satisfied unless
God went with the whole group. That is the difference between a “Greek Mindset” where it is all about the indivi-
dual and the “Hebrew Heart” which is it being all about the community. I have a Hebrew Heart. My relatives died
in Auschwitz. And I say never again! I am a pit bull for Yeshua and He will have to pry me off the enemy before I
let him take any more of my relatives! Come hell or high-water or the tribulation I am running to the sound of the
roar! As a mother or father who sees their child about to be taken, like a laser I am focused on the rescue! The
Father wants His children saved and until He calls me out I’m going in. I am not afraid to run into the fiery furnace
if I know God is with me. This is the culmination of all of history! What angels and all those before us have been
waiting for. My hearts cry is to put me in. When it’s all over I’d rather be telling of the miracles of being in the
furnace and God’s protection rather than being outside as a spectator.
Remember when Messiah said the gates of hell will not prevail against the church! Gates are a defensive piece
of armory, not offensive! The church has been terrified of being attacked by gates?! The truth here is that the
gates are trying to keep people in captivity and the church is supposed to storm the gates of hell and rescue the
people held captive! The truth is that Satan and his minions are terrified of us! It’s time to storm them and that’s
my heart. Be Blessed!
I hope you enjoyed listening to the song above and now watch the video. May you be inspired to join me as we
Wake, Watch and go to Work! Pass this on to other Warriors! We need to quit squabbling over the dating of the
rapture and unite to the Work! Keep this going, time is short, and the battle is near!
Pastor Mark This battle will be won by "running into battle on our knees!"
