Signs in the Sky - on Purim & Passover

Yeshua said in the last days there would be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars. (Luke 21:25)

Next week, the moon is scheduled to make its closest approach to Earth in nearly 20 years.  On March 19 the moon will approach to within just 221,567 miles – the closest since 1992.  Called a Luner Perigee or a SuperMoon.  We will experience 3 of these lunar perigees in a row, which means a new or full moon at 90% of its closest distance to earth. However, a SuperMoon is when the moon is full or new, and is at its 100% closest distance to earth.   Last month’s full moon (February 18), this month’s full moon (March 19), and next month’s full moon (April 17) are all “lunar perigees."  The SuperMoon is the one on March 19, when the approach is at its absolute closest.

All of this is significant because March 19 is the Jewish Feast of Purim, and April 17 is the beginning of Pesach (Passover), one of the most important dates on the Jewish calendar.  Jews celebrate Passover to commemorate the exodus out of Egypt; Christians celebrate Passover because it was when Yeshua was crucified.

It's as if God were putting a huge billboard in the heavens and saying "Look!"  The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.  (Psalm 19:1)
