(CNN) -- Hold the obituary. Experts now think Comet ISON -- or at least part of it -- survived its close encounter with the sun.... Earlier Thursday, NASA scientists had pretty much declared ISON dead at the end of a Google Hangout to watch the comet swing by the sun. But professional and amateur astronomers were undeterred by the reports and kept analyzing NASA satellites. They found images that clearly show something emerging from the sun."
Two days ago I published "Thanksgiving - Hannakah & the ISON Comet on Nov 28." It noted that the occurence of Thanksgiving and Hannakah occuring on the same day will not happen again for another 70,000+ thousand years. Combine that with the ISON Comet passing near the sun on that same day and we find God speaking through a remarkable interalationship of signs in the heavens and on the earth. Two days ago I shared part of what I think God is saying.
What's God saying through all of this?
I submit, we have much to be thankful for IF we keep our focus on heaven. It's time to re-dedicate ourselves back to the Lord just like the Jews dedicated the temple back to the Lord a second time after the Maccabean revolt. It's time to let our lights so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Jesus taught us to pray kingdom come and will be done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN. I invite you to join me in dedicating ourselves to manifesting heaven on earth in a new and glorious way during this season of thanksgiving. - See more at: http://www.kingdomleague.org/3/post/2013/11/thanksgiving-hannakah-the-ison-comet-on-nov-28.html#sthash.mZOuwppN.dpuf
At first it was reported that the comet did not survive its brush with the sun. But now we find that it did.
What does this mean? I submit to you....
Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving in America and Judaism celebrates Hannakah. Discovery.com says that this is "a once in more than 70,000-year event." This is fascinating in and of itself.
Thanksgiving comes from Christians who seperated from England and came to America on the Mayflower to worship in freedom. The suffered many hardships one of which was many died due to starvation. At one point they were reduced to 5 kernels of corn per day. After several miracles during the first year which enabled them to survive they hosted a meal in which they gave thanks. The governor had 5 kernels or corn set on each plate and charged each person to give 5 things he/she was thankful for.
It is surmised that Thanksgiving was inspired by the Feasts of Tabernacles. George Washington on November 26, 1789 issued a proclamation for a special day of thanks and Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November 1863 as "A day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficient Father."
Hannakah is also called the Festival of Lights or the Feast of Dedication. It celebrates the Jews regaining control of Jerusalem during the Maccabean revolt and their rededication of the temple. They celebrate this feast with a menorah that has an extra candle.
What makes this even more interesting is that the icy ISON Comet will have its closest brush with the sun on that day too. Scientist are waiting to see if it will melt or survive its encounter with the sun. Click here for the ISON Comet.
We need "strong men" today more than ever before in the body of Christ. Just before he dies King David tells his son Solomon how he can prove himself a man. This gives keen insight into the qualities God looks for in a man.
1 Kings 2:2-3
“I go the way of all the earth; be strong, therefore, and prove yourself a man. 3 And keep the charge of the Lord your God:to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His judgments, and His testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn;
Jesus likens casting out demons unto a man who contest the encroachment of another man on his property. It takes a stronger man to overcome one who is bound by demonic oppression. Jesus said,
I have just recieved a report (thank you Marilynn) from the Philippines.
Reports coming in from missionaries and 24/7 Houses of Prayer attest to the power of intercessory prayer when danger threatens. An amazing photo taken by a NOAA satellite of Typhoon Haiyan clearly shows that the cities where 24/7 prayer was raised up were not even touched by this monster storm; while others were completely obliterated. Click here or the photo for the whole story.
The ministry went on to explain how the cities in the V cut out of the storm were the places they'd raised up 24/7 prayer. The cities that were to busy to host the ministry which helped establish them did not enjoy this remakable "Prayer Shield."
