I think it’s fair to be a tad gobsmacked about the extraordinary way in which the lunar, common and Jewish calendars line up during these first three months of 2014. After all, God basically wrote the story of Jesus’ birth in the sky. Why shouldn’t He have organized sky signs for the End Times as well?
These first three months of 2014 are the last three months of the Jewish ecclesiastical year that went from Nisan 5773 to Adar II 5774. During this period, we will have …
THREE Full Moons and FOUR New Moons = SEVEN major moon events in THREE months.
3 is God’s number; 4 is for His creation; 3+4 = 7, the number of completion.
New Moons symbolize new beginnings.
4 New Moons in 3 Months put me in mind of the beginning of the End Time.
The Moon has an elliptical orbit. It’s closest approach to Earth is called perigee; its farthest is called apogee. Perigee and apogee do not regularly coincide with the phases of the Moon.
- When perigee coincides, it’s called a Super Full Moon or a Super New Moon.
- When apogee coincides, it’s called a Micro Full Moon or a Micro New Moon.
In January 2014, we had a Super New Moon on New Year’s Day, followed by a Micro Full Moon on January 16. On January 30, we will have a second Super New Moon!
February will be one of the unusual months when the days and dates of the common calendar match the Jewish calendar. I.e. February 1 will be Adar 1. In addition, the first day will be a Sabbath.
The first day of March will also be a Sabbath, as well as the day of the third New Moon of our three month period. Then on March 30th, we will have a second Black Moon within a calendar year. This will be only the fifth time this has happened in more than a century.
The three Full Moons also each have something unusual about them.
- In January, we will have a Micro Full Moon falling in the same month as two Super New Moons.
- In February, the Full Moon will occur on the feast of St. Valentine.
- And in March, it will coincide with the Jewish feast of Purim.
FOUR New Moons and THREE Full Moons inside the FIRST three months of 2014 and the LAST three months of 5774 … and every single one of them has something extraordinary about it!
Wait until you see what’s coming in April. It will blow your mind!
UPDATED Feb 6, 2013 to correct “last 3 months of Jewish year” to “last 3 months of Jewish ecclesiastical year.”
The Jewish calendar numbers the months by the ecclesiastical year which begins with Month 1, called Nisan. It numbers the years beginning in Month 7, called Tishri.
An ordinary Jewish year goes from the first day of the 7th month through months 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, in that order.
In a Leap Year, a second 12th month is added; these months are called Adar I and Adar II or 12a and 12b.
A Jewish Leap Year goes from the first day of the 7th month through months 8, 9, 10, 11, 12a, 12b, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, in that order.
