“Then spoke Yehoshua to Hashem in the day when Hashem delivered up the Amorites before Bnei Yisrael; and he said in the sight of Israel: ‘Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon.’” Joshua 10:12 (The Israel Bible™)
A rare confluence of a solar and lunar event which occurs only twice a century took place on the evening of Monday, June 21 when a Strawberry Moon rose in the sky during the summer solstice. An event with deep mystical significance, the solstice means very different things for different people, but it is rooted deeply in Biblical sources.
The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, marks the middle of the summer. Derived from the Latin word ‘solstitium’, the term ‘solstice’ means ‘sun standing still’. Caused by the revolution of the tilted axis of the Earth, it causes the changes of the seasons. The solstice generally falls between June 20 and 22 in the Northern Hemisphere.
This year, the summer solstice was accompanied by a rare occurrence, called a Strawberry Moon, when the solstice coincides with a full moon. This astrological event only occurs about once every 50 years, with the last Strawberry Moon in 1967 and the next scheduled to arrive in 2062. The term was invented by Algonquin tribes of North America who believed June’s full moon signalled the beginning of the strawberry picking season.
For those who still adhere to pagan rituals, the highlight of the solstice is at the ancient site of Stonehenge in Avebury, England. The festival on Monday night drew 12,000 participants. On the solstice, or “Litha” as pagans call it, the central Altar stone at Stonehenge aligns with the Heel stone, the Slaughter stone and the rising sun to the north east in a beautiful arc.
Also called Midsummer’s eve, pagans believed the solstice was when the division between this world and the next was at its thinnest, and fairies were at their most powerful. Pagans and druids performed a fire ritual on the summer solstice, gathering in a circle around a large central candle and lighting individual candles from it, one at a time.
In Biblical Israel, the passage of time related to the agricultural cycles and are divided into four tekufot (seasons). Each tekufah, according to Samuel Yarhinai, a Babylonian Talmudic sage from the second century, divided the year into four equal periods of 91 days and 7½ hours. Teḳufat Tammuz, the summer solstice, begins “Et Ha-Katzir” (harvest-time).
The summer solstice was also associated with Moses striking the rock, instead of speaking to it, and causing drops of blood to flow from it. In punishment for this act, Moses and Aaron were not allowed to enter the Land of Israel.
And Moshe lifted up his hand, and smote the rock with his rod twice; and water came forth abundantly, Numbers 20:11
Seder Olam, a second-century Hebrew language chronology detailing the dates of biblical events, stated that the battle in which Joshua stops the sun in the sky also occurred on the summer solstice.
And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Joshua 10:13

Don’t we already know how this movie’s going to end?
In a potentially terrifying case of life imitating art, the renowned paleontologist who served as the inspiration for Jurassic Parkprotagonist Dr. Alan Grant is spearheading genetic research that could engineer dinosaurs back into existence within the next five to 10 years, he says.
While Dr. Jack Horner, who has consulted on all four Jurassic films, initially believed the key to recreating the prehistoric creatures lied in working with ancient DNA strands, further study about DNA degradation over time has since ruled out that possibility.

This week we are going to see “life threatening” heat all across the southwest United States. In southern California, temperatures will top triple digits in many areas on Monday, and the forecast is for the mercury to reach an astounding 121 degrees in Palm Springs. Further inland, it is being projected that Phoenix and Las Vegas could both experience their highest temperatures ever early this week. Summer is just beginning and we are literally seeing things take place that we have never seen happen before. Just a few weeks ago, I wrote an article about how the weather seems to be going crazy all over America. Is this just a temporary phenomenon or have weather patterns in the United States changed permanently?
Most people know that the hottest place in America is Death Valley, California. The record high for Death Valley during the month of June is 129 degrees, and it is being reported that even that record could fall this week…
The highest temperature on record in the United States during the month of June is 129 F in Death Valley, California, on June 30, 2013.“That record could be in jeopardy this weekend or early this week,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson said.
On Sunday there were already news reports of people dying from this life-threatening heat, and so if you live in the southwest you are going to need to take some very important precautions during this heatwave. The following are some tips that come from the L.A. County Public Health Department…
— Learn the warning signs of heat-related illnesses
— Stay out of direct sunlight
— Stay hydrated
— Reduce physical activity
— Identify a cool location, such as a mall, library, theater or designated cooling center
— Use cool compresses, misting and baths to lower body temperatures
— Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing
— Use sunscreen
— Check on pets, friends, family and neighbors who may be especially, sensitive to excessive heat.
Yes, things always get hot in the summer, especially in places like Phoenix. But what we are witnessing right now is truly unusual, and this heatwave in June follows the hottest May ever recorded…
This past May was the warmest May month in a 137-year period, breaking global temperature records, according to a report published Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).The new data shows that May was the thirtieth consecutive month to have soaring global temperatures across land and sea surfaces. This is the longest and hottest streak since temperature record-keeping began in 1880, according to NOAA.Right now, 2016 is on pace to be the hottest year on record.
So are these changes permanent?
It is hard to say, and there are people on both sides of the debate that will angrily argue these issues for hours.
But what we do know is that weather patterns have been changing all throughout human history, and they always will be changing.
And all it would take would be one major event to radically change weather patterns once again. For example, a major volcanic eruption on the west coast that pumps massive amounts of dust and ash into the air could dramatically cool global temperatures. If that happens, we could very rapidly be finding ourselves talking about record cold temperatures all across the United States.
But for now we are dealing with record heat, and with record heat comes very dangerous wildfires…
And along with the heat are coming some damaging wildfires in southern California, New Mexico, and Arizona covering tens of thousands of acres of land and displacing hundreds of families. Firefighters are working to contain the blazes, though the continued heat wave through the weekend could complicate things.
In particular, there is a very dangerous wildfire not too far from Santa Barbara, California that tripled in size from Thursday into Friday…
A blistering heat wave in Southern California this weekend along with strong winds could further fan a wildfire that has sent swirling flames close to ranches and triggered mandatory evacuations, officials said on Friday.The so-called Sherpa Fire feeding on chaparral and grass about 20 miles (32 km) northwest of the affluent city of Santa Barbara tripled in size from 1,200 acres (486 hectares) on Thursday night to more than 4,000 acres (1,619 hectares) early on Friday, fire officials said.
If you follow my writing closely, you already know that last year was the worst year for wildfires in all of U.S. history.
And according to the National Interagency Fire Center, so far we are more than a million acres ahead of the pace that was set last year.
Someone that warned about all of this in advance was author John Paul Jackson. He warned that record high temperatures would accompany crippling drought all across the southern portion of the country. You can see a video clip in which he issues this warning right here.
So are we seeing record high temperatures hit the southwest right now?
Yes, that certainly is the case.
And drought is starting to spread all across the southern portion of the nation as well. The following is the latest map from the U.S. Drought Monitor…
In my controversial new book, I also warn that a “perfect storm” is coming. Weather patterns are going to continue to change, unprecedented natural disasters are going to hit this nation, and our planet is going to shake in frightening and unpredictable ways.
The Bible tells us that the period of time just before the return of Jesus Christ will be the most tumultuous time in all of human history. Unfortunately, most people really don’t understand what that is going to mean for them and their families.
We are entering a period of time when life is going to seem like it is one big Hollywood disaster movie after another. There will be great earthquakes, tremendous volcanic eruptions, nightmarish terror attacks, devastating pandemics and crippling economic disruptions.
The days of “normal life” in America are coming to an end. The years ahead are going to be incredibly challenging, and things are going to be radically different from what we have grown accustomed to.
Hopefully, you have already been preparing for what is coming.
If not, you have a lot of work to do, and not a lot of time to do it.
End of the American Dream
