Can this Date be Biblically Prophetic? Important Events in Jewish History on the 9th of Av

In the previous post we looked at the date when Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke to the joint session of the United States Congress. He gave this speech, which was against the deal the U.S. is working out with Iran to allow Iran to create nuclear weapons, on the eve of Purim. Mr. Netanyahu is concern Iran will use their nuclear weapons against Israel and it's a certainty that they will because they have said as much and there is no reason to disbelieve they will do exactly as they threaten. 

I believe it's significant that Mr. Netanyahu's speech was given on the eve of Purim. (Tweet that!) The One True God reveals His wisdom and speaks to us in patterns. (Tweet that!) And as we've watched the past three "Blood Moons" on important Jewish Feast days occur over the past year, we can notice, if we're paying attention, that the Lord God has planned and timed these events to coincide with what He foreknew would be occurring on earth. (Tweet that!

Purim was when the enemies of Israel plotted to wipe Israel off the face of the earth in the time of Queen Esther, 474 B.C. The Prime Minister's speech to the U.S. about the U.S.'s coming nuclear agreements with Iran was on the eve of Purim (Tweet that!) and I believe also on the eve of significant worldwide events occurring concerning Iran attempting to carry out its threats against Israel with the cooperation of the United States. (Tweet that!)

If dates are in fact prophetic, meaning we can see a pattern in history of important events occurring on the same date (on the Jewish calendar), then my question is, can we take an educated guess that something significant might occur on this date in the future? (Tweet that!)

Here are three examples: (Tweet that!)

The Total Lunar "Blood Moon" Eclipses On Jewish Holy Days


If you've been following this blog or the series of four "Blood Moons" you know we are experiencing a series of four total lunar eclipses on significant dates on the Jewish calendar. Those dates are the first and last of the seven annual feasts – Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles – in both 2014 and 2015. In the past, significant events occurred in Israel's history around those times. Learn more here:



The Financial Happenings on Past Shemitahs


If you've been following this blog, then you also know about the Shemitah that comes every seven years, which we will talk about more as it approaches on September 13, 2015. (Tweet that!) Major financial falls have occurred in the United States which rippled worldwide on the previous two Shemitahs in 2001, just after the attacks of 9/11, and again in 2008. Some are already speculating what may occur this coming fall. Learn more here:



The 9th of Av


"Av" is the fifth month on the Jewish religious calendar and matches up approximately with July/August on our calendar. On the 9th day of Av, significant occurrences have taken place in Israel's history including the following. (Tweet that!):


  • According to Jewish history, it was on the 9th of Av that the ten spies, not counting Joshua and Caleb, which Moses sent to search out the Promised Land gave their bad report to Moses which caused the Israelites to refuse to enter the land God promised to them, resulting in them wandering the wilderness for forty years until that generation died off before entering the Land under Joshua's leadership.
  • It was on the 9th of Av that the first Jewish Temple, that is Solomon's Temple, was looted and burned by the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar. (Note my Bible says, "On the seventh day of the fifth month…" (2 Kings 24:8). That was August 14, 586 B.C. Jeremiah 52:12 records it as "the tenth day of the fifth month…" A note in the NIV Study Bible explains the difference this way: "The parallel in 2 Ki 25:8 reads 'seventh day'; one of the numbers is a copyist's error, but we cannot tell which." See 2 Chronicles 36:15-21, 2 Kings 25:1-21, Jeremiah 52:4-27.) 
  • Significantly, the second Temple was also destroyed on the 9th of Av in 70 A.D. by the Romans under Titus. This occurred some 40 years after Jesus' death and resurrection and fulfilled the Bible prophecy spoken by Jesus himself in Matthew 24:2.
  • King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella expelled the Jews from Spain on the 9th of Av in 1492.

So my question is, Could something prophetically significant happen to Israel on the 9th of Av in soon-coming years? Even in 2015? (Tweet that!) On our calendar, the 9th of Av in 2015 takes place from the evening of July 24 to the evening of July 25, 2015.

  2. THIS TETRAD OF BLOOD MOONS IS THE FIRST ONE DIRECTLY AFFECTING THE WHOLE BODY OF THE ANOINTED ONE, and NOT just ISRAELITES as in the past 7 tetrads. The veils were lifted over Israel and MORE JEWS ARE RECEIVING THEIR MESSIAH NOW than even the first time at SHAVUOT/ PENTECOST 33 AD
