Shining LIGHT to a darkened world


                                              2017 GLOBAL FORECAST UPDATE APRIL 2017

                                                                               APRIL 30, 2017
Isaiah 21:6
"For this has YHWH said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees."
Ezekiel 3:17
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me."

As we embark on another month we find that our planet is awakening to a great deception that has been perpetrated on the population for hundreds of years. However, we will later come to the realization that there is an even greater deceiver that has been using pawns, puppets, and false prophets to do his bidding for thousands of years. This is the perfect time to set our minds on higher things that we may bring forth the fruit of the earth in the upcoming troubling times (Acts 14:22, John 15:20, John 16:33, Acts 9:16). As the saying goes: “April showers may come your way. They bring the flowers that bloom in May." We’re about to see a host of showers that seem mentally stormy but when we learn the lessons within the drops, we may grow and bloom into the type of flowers that bring forth beauty and healing to those who behold our fruit. Whether we see the flowers blooming in May, or anytime thereafter, cosmic and subtle changes are taking place that will bring forth a transformation to our beautiful Mother Earth. While we wait for the seeds to take root and spring forth, we must continue to weather the storms that humanities’ past and present actions have conjured up. 
This month we saw hundreds and thousands of dead fish wash up in places like Michigan, Tennessee, and Georgia, to name a few. We also continued to see earthquakes of a magnitude 5.5 or greater repeatedly shake places like Chile, the Philippines, and many other places. Diseases like Dengue and Cholera continued to claim lives; while several regions in Nigeria saw outbreaks of foot and mouth disease that plagued the people. However, all was not doom and gloom, as we saw companies adding hundreds of new jobs as the global economic landscape is preparing for a great transition. Let’s revisit the following areas of interest and then look at the happenings in April.

  • Donald Trump doesn’t make it through a full term of his presidency
  • We continue to see an increase in the amount of record natural disasters
  • We see a dramatic rise in sea levels
  • Great scandals continue to cause great men and women to step down. Some may even get arrested
  • Terror strikes around the globe continue 
  • The human population continues to become increasingly angry 
  • Increases in diseases continue, and “cures” are touted to be found to eradicate them
  • disruptions in travel continue
  • Food shortages spread, before there is a so-called solution
  • Global financial unrest leads to a global currency reset
  • There is an extraterrestrial disclosure by major governments or undeniable sightings of our alien neighbors

Hosea 4:1-3 reads: “Hear the word of YHWH, O children of Israel, for YHWH has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of YHWH in the land; there is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. That is why your land dries up, and all who live therein waste away; the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens and even the fish of the sea are taken away.”

    The above scripture could not make our predicament any plainer. Clearly, the knowledge of YHWH to follow His life-giving principles is devoid from our land. Turn on the news in your area and a host of violence and bloodshed will more than likely fill your screen. Hosea prophesied that our beasts of the field, birds of the air, and fish of the sea would be taken away. This next section shows just that.

                                                  EARTHQUAKES IN PLACE AFTER PLACE

Isaiah 13:11-13 drives the point home of what lies in store for the earth because of the arrogance of those who are trying to harm the earth. “I will bring disaster on the world, and their own iniquity, on the wicked. I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant and humiliate the insolence of tyrants. I will make man scarcer than gold, and mankind more rare than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will shake from its foundations at the wrath of Yahweh on the day of His burning anger.” 
The earth is getting ready to shake on an unprecedented scale that will be felt across the globe. This month we see, as so many times in past forecasts that frequency and intensification of earthquakes are devastating the land and many who dwell upon it. The prophet Isaiah, much like the prophet Hosea shared an insight as to why this turmoil befalls the human race. The collective attitudes of pride, arrogance, and wickedness have irritated a cosmic energy that is agitating the earth as well as those who entertain these dark spirits. In April 2017 the USGS recorded 9,434 earthquakes. Seven Hundred and fifty-one were a magnitude 4.0 or above. The following 34 did not make the mainstream news in April however they did register above a magnitude 5.5.

                                                   NATURAL WEATHER EMERGENCIES

In times past, the ancients viewed calamitous weather events as a sign that the gods were displeased with their actions, or that the gods required some sort of sacrifice to appease their anger. We can’t say for sure if this concept caused our predecessors to straighten-up their act, if even for a while. The one thing we can say is that each person today can make the sacrifice of their lower beastly nature, which crops up as greed, envy, jealousy, anger, hatred, pride, and spiritual slothfulness, in order to cultivate their higher nature which produces the fruits of love, compassion, mercy, patience, humility, diligence and kindness. If we straightened up our act we’d experience less turbulence in our lives and weather events, and experience more peace:

                                               ENVIRONMENTAL DISTRESS AND DISEASE

Deuteronomy 28: 58-62 says: “If you do not carefully observe and do all the words of the law, that are written in this book, in order that you may reverence this glorious and reverent Name: YHWH your Father, then YHWH will bring upon you and your descendants fearful plagues, harsh and prolong disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. He will also bring back upon you all the diseases of Egypt which you were afraid of, and they will cling to you; Every other sickness and every other disaster, which is not written in this book of the law, YHWH will also bring upon you, until you are destroyed. You will then be left few in number…”
We all have the responsibility to do our part to protect our planet. Believe it or not, our part can be as simple as following the life-giving principles of peace. When each person does their part, the whole fits together like a well-oiled machine. When we fail to uphold these very same principles, over time we experience adverse reactions in our lives and in our environment. There are many places in the Holy Scriptures where YHWH inspired one of His teachers to instruct the people to be careful to observe His Laws. The second part of that statement was often followed by: so it may go well with you (Deut. 6:18). As you read the next section think about the above scripture in Deuteronomy and how it may relate to these April events.

                                                                 SIGNS OF THE TIMES 

We mentioned in last month’s forecast the dates in April when certain planets would be going retrograde. We have repeated it here as well. In April we find that the constellations are broadcasting that the influence that will be befalling mankind will be heating up even more over the months ahead. In the heavens we find five planets that will be in retrograde during April. Pluto goes into retrograde on April 20, 2017. Kokhav (Mercury) goes into retrograde on April 9, 2017. Shabbatai (Saturn) goes into retrograde on April 6, 2017 Saturn is the Lord of Karma. Tzedeq (Jupiter) will already be in retrograde and ends on June 9, 2017. Kokhevet (Venus) will also already be in retrograde and ends on April 15, 2017. Remember: each planet represents a different aspect of life. When each planet goes retrograde it appears to be going backwards.  Therefore, the element of that aspect of life that the planet represents is affected through influential energies in a reverse manner. This is nothing but a cosmic examination (Ex. 20:20). Man does not have to yield to the impulse of these energies however, without the influence of love for his fellow man mankind is susceptible to those impulses. Please don’t think that we are huddled in a smoky parlor reading tea leaves, or crystal balls; not that we’re knocking anyone who does. YHWH did give us the planets as signs (Gen. 1:14) and it may serve us well to prepare ourselves for troublous times if we are able to see the warning in the signs. So when we look at the activities of the planets, we are using yet another tool that our Heavenly Father has given us to prepare for what lies ahead.
Now, this next section remains in the forecast to remind you of the extraterrestrial events we listed at the beginning of 2017.

We are not endorsing any religious group or pastor. However, the censoring of truth to keep light from shining through the darkness that grips this world persecution must come. During the days of Mosheh’s entry in this world, many died in an attempt to destroy him. This was also the case during Yahshua’s entry into the earth. We have seen bans on religious symbols from burqa to the 10 commandments. The next two headlines may not mean much to the individual reader, but we may want to ask ourselves: why? Put them on the shelf for now, if you like, but keep a watchful eye in case a trend is brewing.

                                                        GLOBAL ECONOMIC UNREST

Money isn’t the problem; it is the love of it that causes the root of evil to spring up. Once this vine of greed has wrapped itself tightly around people and the industries they are enslaved to, economic unrest is sure to reveal itself. Brexit is now officially on track, which will likely lead to others leaving the EU and likely put tremendous pressure on the Euro and EU. Look for drastic changes in the months and years to come, as traditional industries struggle to survive, while industries that fit well with artificial intelligence thrive. However, don’t be lulled or deceived. Below we see some of the economic distress experienced in April:

                                                          GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY

What better way to lull the people into a sense of security and complacency than to orchestrate an economic recovery that seems to rain down currency upon our heads. Some may wonder: "what will it take to make these people happy? If the economy is booming, shouldn’t we all be satisfied?” All things must be considered. If the economy is recovering, but we still haven’t learned how to treat our neighbors as ourselves, making sure that everyone’s needs are truly met, then it is only a matter of time before our recovery leads into further enslavement of the populous. 
All that glitters isn’t gold. Though that saying is a bit cliché, it does have a ring of truth to it. The next section shows an economy that glitters with jobs being added to many sectors. Sounds good, right? Well, time will tell if these added jobs are good enough to usher in peace and security for all. Below we see a snapshot of the April recovery:

                                                             GLOBAL SOCIAL UNREST

By now we can probably detect that every part of our lives is interrelated. We do not live in isolated cells separated by the names and functions that we assign to them. If our environment is polluted, and our health is ailing, and our economy is failing, it stands to reason that unrest will manifest itself in other areas as well. It is easy to see that there is global unrest. However, if we are paying attention to these forecasts, we will be preparing for unrest to progressively get worse. 
If the last section left us feeling somewhat hopeful about the future of our civilization – keep hope alive! However, this next section fraught with news headlines about global social unrest and mayhem may leave us feeling a little less than warm and fuzzy.

April continued to feature scandals and investigations from some of our top leaders, and global power players, as there were arrests, resignations and even deaths as the unseen war that we have spoken of for so long continues. We turn our eyes to our nation’s leaders for direction and safety, but in some of the following cases it might be better to look the other way. With great power comes great responsibility, and they are, or at least, they are supposed to be good role models, but something has led most off course. Look for arrest to ramp up as we go further into this Jubilee year. As for the children of Light, the gaze should be set on our Source to see the example of how those in power should behave. Truth, mercy, compassion, patience, and kindness are just a few of the characteristics that we receive from that Spring. We’re willing to bet that if our leaders expressed the attributes of YHWH our next section might not even have a place in this forecast; but because many don’t, following are the scandals reported in April:

                                               DISRUPTIONS IN TRANSPORTATION

We have mentioned before that disruptions in our planet’s magnetosphere can be linked to some of the problems with our electronically controlled mechanical equipment. Although the holy scriptures do not appear to make a direct connection to humanities’ wayward behavior and issues with transportation (after all, planes, trains, buses, and automobiles were not even invented as yet) it does plainly show that those who trust in the power of the Almighty will be guided and protected under His wings. We are not suggesting that every incident below happened because of man’s lawbreaking; however, the possibility remains that we are collectively reaping what we have sown, and are being affected in various facets of our daily lives, including – transportation.
