April 8th Solar Eclipse - God's Greatest Prophetic Message To The Church


The Eclipse occurs on April 8th, 2024, or 04/8/24, which is also 4 – 4- 4 and 24, or 6 times 4, which is a total of the number 4 repeated 9 times; the number 9 is biblically symbolic to represent finality, atonement, and judgment because it was at the 9th hour of the day Jesus was crucified and died.


Low and behold, the 2017 eclipse intersects paths with the 2024 eclipse, giving us the sign of the cross, or the tav, the mark, right smack across the United States. Tav is the Hebrew word for Mark, and it means to sign or signal and also means OMEN. The numerical value of the letter TAV is 400—again, the pattern of the number 4.


This intersection, along with the October 14th eclipse, literally spells out the Hebrew word that literally represents SIGN—the word right from Genesis 1:14. The word used there for SIGN comes from the root word “ooth,” which is strongs concordance H225, which means “to consent or agree.” This word is where we get the act of covenant-making in the Bible between two parties.


"Ooth" comprises three Hebrew letters: aleph, vav, and tav.


Aleph symbolizes power and strength, like an ox head.


Vav signifies a tent peg, denoting securing or hooking.


Tav represents crossed sticks to mark or signal.


When you put those letters together, they evoke the image of a plowman guiding an ox harnessed to a plow, aiming for a distant landmark on the horizon to maintain a straight furrow. "Consent" originates from covenant-making, where parties agree on a destination, akin to an ox reaching a landmark when plowing. A "sign" originates from covenant marking, serving as a reminder for both parties.


So when you put this word in its original Hebrew context, in the verse of Genesis 1:14- 15, we understand that a sign occurring in an eclipse, whether it be the sun or the moon, or alignments dealing with the planets and constellations, is a reminder to both God and to mankind of His covenant made with Abraham passed on to the Jewish people, and later, fulfilled and passed on to Christians who are ingrafted, or inherited into this covenant through Jesus who was a literal representation of the TAV – the Marking or in other words – the ultimate SIGN – of God’s covenant.


So, when we see or read about God’s covenant, we deal with God’s Word—His Promises.


And even more specifically, signs that remind not just the Jewish People but the covenant God made concerning the Land of Israel. The land is another sign of God’s covenant.


In addition to being repeated nine times, the number represents finality, judgment, and the atonement for sin—this coming from the literal crucifixion of Jesus and having the cross painted over the United States. We are also currently in the Hebrew Jewish year 5784—again dealing with the number 4.


And guess how long the eclipse will last over the United States? Approximately 4 minutes.


And guess when the next solar eclipse will occur over the United States—not until 2044. Again, we see a pattern emerging with the number 4.


Just yesterday, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck outside NYC, impacting NY and NJ. 4.8 is also the exact date of when the eclipse will occur…


So, what does the number 4 mean, and why is it so repetitive in this prophetic pattern?

#1. TIME:

The sun and the moon were not yet created until the 4th day. Although time technical was first created on day one when God said let there be light – the material time that comes from the sun and the moon – was not created until the 4th day – there is God’s time, which is a divine clock – and there is the material time that was created – which is purposed for man’s time – the appointed time for men on earth.


So, without a sun or a moon, humans do not have a way to calculate time, nor do we have a way to calculate the years or seasons—the calendar, the years, and the seasons—which are used and purposed to mark sacred time and seasons.


That word for seasons is the Hebrew word Moedim (H4150). That word does not mean spring, summer, fall, or winter. It means God’s appointed feast days.

So, the reason for this day, for the sun and the moon, was first to give us the appointed times – to know when we would meet with Him – a divine appointment on God’s divine appointed times


This is why Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2 “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”


These seasons are ultimately connected to the first and second coming of the Messiah, Jesus; they are intimately connected to Biblical Prophecy.


So, the number 4 represents the appointed times.


We are currently in the Hebrew year 5784 – the number 4 in Hebrew is the letter or word Dalet – which means “Door.”


As Jesus said in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hears my voice at the door, I will come in to him, and will eat with him, and he with me.”


The TAV in Hebrew is also where we get the context of the Passover in the Exodus story—the marking of the doorpost. So TAV and the Dalet go together hand in hand—to sign, to mark, which represents the covenant.


The very day after the eclipse, April 9th, 2024, Nissan 1 occurs—which is the first day of the first month of the new Hebrew year—and the Jewish Hebrew Calendar starts over and begins.


This not only symbolizes the end but also the beginning, as in the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end—as in the Aleph and TAV that are signed across the United States. Along with the October Eclipse, we have the literal spelling of the word—sign across the nation.


Then, From Nissan 1, or April 9th, 2024, until the very day before Pentecost Sunday, May 19th, 2024, we have 40 days – again, the NUMBER 4 being symbolized, the number 40 representing a testing period, a period of testing and tribulation.


Now, the third and absolute most important meaning of this number is that 4 symbolizes separation and division…


Genesis 1:17-18: God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to SEPARATE light from the darkness. And God saw it was good.


Matthew 13:24-30 Jesus gives us the parable of the wheat and the tares…which is a prophetic message concerning the end times, what occurs at the tribulation period –


24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.


27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’


28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.


“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’


29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time, I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”


Wheat does not sprout overnight…it takes approximately 10 days for seeds to begin to sprout. So, this is why verse 26 says…. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.


Jesus is not talking about something occurring overnight…although the enemy planted overnight…Jesus is talking about a time period …specifically appointed to the harvest--when the signs are visible.


Luke chapter 21:29-36 is the parable of the fig tree. It differs from Matthew 24 because, in this context, pay close attention to what is said…Jesus says in verses 29 and 30:


“Look at the fig tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.”


Jesus spoke of not just the fig tree of Israel, alluding to the reformation of Israel in 1948; Jesus is also referring to the nations – all of the nations…and, even more specifically, the signs and the fruit in which these nations are producing…


Jesus said that His coming would also be like the times of LOT, the times of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the times of Noah


In other words, Jesus is saying that when you see the signs of not just God’s kingdom—looking at the promises of God through Israel—but also the signs of Sodom and Gomorrah, the signs that led to the destruction of the earth during Noah's time, when you see the signs of not just the Wheat appearing but also the tares—the signs of the enemy—the signs of sin…you know that the Lord’s coming is right around the corner…


when you put it all together, this eclipse occurring on 4/8/24, in the Hebrew year 5784, the sign of the Aleph and TAV, the marking of an appointed time and season that prophecies of the Messiah, tells us that the appointed time of judgment is coming…


Where the separation occurs, the wheat and tares are separated and harvested…


The tares are imitators,…designed specifically by the enemy to imitate and look like wheat. However, they are not only pointless and useless for eating, but they are also poisonous and deadly.


Jesus is talking about the church, the bridge of Christ, and the difference between the authentic and the imitators. So, how do you discern the difference between true and fake?


Only God knows; they are distinguished only by the Word of God—and they are proven through testing. Testing comes through persecution, it comes through fire, it comes through the threshing floor, and it comes through pressure…


All of these fake churches, fake Christians, those who have progressed in the way of the LGBTQ, the abortion movements, the liberal and progressive movements that have perverted the word of God, that have perverted the church, are about to be separated and judged…


So we ought to be encouraged by the very real hope and saving knowledge of the gospel of Christ through this very real sign, and we ought to be filled with hope that we are proved worthy of the very life that Jesus has given to us by living according to it—living it authentically and intentionally, fully obedient and subservient to it.


Luke 21:36, “Be always on the watch and pray that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man.”


Ephesians 4:1: “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received or have been called by God”.


Revelation 3:4: “God said to the church of Sardis, I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. Remember what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.


Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy….The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.”


Pay very close attention to this very important detail. Jesus warns the church to WAKE UP. That exact word for wake is a strong concordance word 1453 – the Greek word EGEIRO, where the word RESURRECT comes from -IT MEANS TO BE RAISED UP.


We just celebrated easter, the death and resurrection of Jesus…the promise of eternal life for those in Christ…Jesus is calling His bride; He is calling the church, telling us to rise, wake up, be diligent, repent, and become ready…


The wheat and the tares are about to be distinguished…and we need to ask ourselves the very question: Which one are we? Will we answer the call and heed the warning to repent…or will we remain asleep in death?


Romans 1:26-28 Paul warns about the end times, saying, “God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the CREATOR who is forever praised.”


Because of this, God gave them over to shame and lust. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.


Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind so that they do ought not to be done.”


That word for depraved means useless – a useless mind – like the tares who are useless.


Look around you, and the signs are all visible. The time is now – the calling is now.
