The Last Heavenly Sign Before the Rapture?

The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. - Psalm 97:6 KJV

God has been declaring His intentions in the heavenlies since their creation and, in my thinking, exponentially so in the last five years (see The Heavenly Signs of 2018 and 2017 and

Quoting Mark Biltz:

“Throughout history God, the Master Timekeeper,
has used the heavenly bodies to communicate to us
when significant events will happen.”

Super Moon Trio--Completion

According to EarthSky, in 2019 we’ll have a series of 3 full supermoons on January 21, February 19 and March 21. As I was writing this article, I remembered my 3 Supermoons Dream and wondered if it referred to these three supermoons of 2019 instead of the 2017-2018 moons!

The January 21 Supermoon was called a Super Blood Wolf Moon and was referred to as a harbinger. Many of us (including me) were hoping to meet our Heavenly Bridegroom that night; but, as I wrote before, perhaps the blood moon seen by believers in dreams and visions is one that will be caused by the tumult of volcanoes and pillars of fire as Daniel’s 70th Week/The Tribulation begins (as intimated by Joel 2:30). In essence, it may be an unscheduled blood moon.

Now coming up the evenings of February 18 and 19 there will be another Super Moon. What’s so special about this one?

Location, location, location!

Last year, in 2018, the month of February had no full moon at all. But this year’s February presents the biggest full moon supermoon of 2019. By the way, that bright star accompanying the February supermoon is none other than Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion.

Many are already familiar with the Moon being a symbol of the Virgin Bride and the constellation Leo as a representation of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. So here is a picture of the Bride of Christ entering the heart of the Lion of Judah, Her Heavenly Bridegroom!

One of the Closest since 1948!

The perigee of the February 18-19 Super Moon gives it the honor of being listed among the closest to the Earth since 1948—the year of the replanting of the fig tree nation, Israel!

But it was the Nov. 14, 2016 one that got the most attention because it was the closest supermoon in recent memory. The moon's perigee was 221,524 miles (356,508 kilometers) from Earth, making it the closest full moon to Earth in 69 years — specifically, since the supermoon of Jan. 26, 1948.

After November 14, 2016, the extra-close coincidence of full moon and perigee didn’t happen again until January 1-2, 2018.

Extra-close supermoons (less than 357,000 km)
2010 Jan 30 (356,593 km)
2011 Mar 19 (356,575 km)
2012 May 06 (356,955 km)
2013 Jun 23 (356,991 km)
2014 Aug 10 (356,896 km)
2015 Sep 28 (356,877 km)
2016 Nov 14 (356,509 km)
2018 Jan 02 (356,565 km)
2019 Feb 19 (356,761 km)

God is pointing out the completion of Israel’s 70th year! Remember these other crucial anniversaries in February I previously wrote about:

. . . Israel declared its independence on May 14, 1948; however, February 14, 1949, was when the Knesset first met—on Tu B’Shevat. Could THIS be the date God chose to mark Israel’s actual beginning?

This led me to look up other dates associated with the replanting of the Fig Tree Nation from

The first sitting of the Constituent Assembly was held.
Joseph Shprinzak was elected as Speaker of the Assembly.
The Constituent Assembly ratified the Transition Law, which
changed its name to the First Knesset, and elected Chaim
Weizmann as the first President of the State.

as President of the State of Israel.
David Ben Gurion formed the First Government.

March 21 Purim Supermoon

The third supermoon to close out the trio will be seen March 20-21—the days of one of the most joyous festivals—Purim!

I shared in The Die is Cast article how the religious leaders in Israel are expecting their Messiah to come (the first time) on Purim this year and how this could possibly point to the Resurrection/Rapture of the Overcoming Church occurring then!

On the Hebrew calendar Purim begins at sunset March 20 and is observed until sunset March 21. 2019 Season of the Green Figs

2019 Season of the Green Figs
The number 3 is used in Scripture to mean “completion”. Is the Supermoon Trio God’s sign to mark the COMPLETION OF THE CHURCH AGE OF GRACE? I certainly hope so and believe the evidence heavily favors the possibility of a 2019 Spring Wedding!

February 9, 2019 ADDENDUM: Just as the earth’s groanings are becoming more frequent, so too the heavenly declarations!  It is truly difficult to keep up with everything, so forgive me for just now adding this news about Comet Iwamoto (C/2018 Y1) which is also making its appearance this month of February. (Many thanks to Sheila B. for bringing this to light.)

A fast-moving comet, C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto), is nearing its February encounter with the sun and Earth. . .

The best nights for observing the comet (with binoculars and small telescopes) should be on February 11 and 12, but is already visible with optical aid.  Recent estimates suggest the newly found comet might reach a brightness or magnitude between 6.5 and 7.5 , which means it should be easily seen with small telescopes and binoculars. It will not be visible to the eye alone.

During February 11 and 12 this comet will pass through the HEART OF LEO.

The comet offers an exquisite sight shortly after nightfall on Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) will pass very close to NGC 2903, a beautiful galaxy in Leo.  Although the encounter’s timing favors observers in Europe and Africa, sky enthusiasts in America will also see the comet passing close to the galaxy, if they have their telescopes ready at nightfall. This view will be amazing.

Remembering that comets are used by God for signs, it is worth noting that this faintly green fast traveler is not visible to the naked eye; therefore, only those with spiritual eyes will see its significance relative to the last days. Like Comet 46P/Wirtanen (see More Heavenly Signs of 2018) , this is a newly discovered comet. Wirtanen was meant to be seen for it represents the coming River of Wrath, however, Comet Iwamoto is meant to be noticed primarily by the Bride.

The Stone of Origin

In the surname Iwamoto Behind the Name states Iwa means "Stone" and Moto means "Origin".

In the Old Testament the coming of The Stone was foretold:

The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner. - Psalm 118:22 KJV

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [stone], a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. - Isaiah 28:16 KJV

In the New Testament He was revealed:

This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. - Acts 4:11 KJV
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. - 1 Peter 2:6 KJV
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, [even to them] which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. - 1 Peter 2:8 KJV

And He is The Stone that destroys the Antichrist’s Kingdom in the vision of Daniel:

Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. - Daniel 2:45 KJV

Our Strong and Noble Bridegroom

Comet Iwamoto will pass very close to NGC 2903, a beautiful galaxy in Leo. Out of curiosity, I looked up in the concordance Strongs G2903 and found kratistos which means “strongest, noblest, most excellent”.

Need I write more? We who have bound ourselves to our Noble Bridegroom will soon be at His side and will then join Him as He dashes to pieces the false kingdoms of the earth and sets up His Millennial Kingdom as Revelation 19 foretells.

Oh come, Mighty Prince, come!

8/31/19 Update

The following Comment I posted at Rev12daily Blogspot continues the Sign of the Supermoons as shared in the above article, so I wanted to share it here to encourage all who are watching for our Bridegroom:

Ok, Brethren and Sister-en--
Haven't been able to read all of your wonderful informative comments above, but has anyone put together info re. this month of August's BLACK SUPERMOON?

Just watched this Youtube video:
SciFriday: Hurricane Dorian, the Black Supermoon, and Rolling AI Avatars

Their video explains why it is called "Black" and "Super".

EarthSky's article describes it as the: "Year’s closest new supermoon August 30":

Not only that but Forbes wrote this article:
"This Week’s ‘New Black Supermoon’ Will Make A River Go Backwards And Bring 'King' Tides"

With the HUGE SIGNIFICANCE OF SEPTEMBER 2019, all this caught my attention. Then I remembered what Mike Young, a pastor/watchman, commented in one of my articles:

"After that vision I realized that Yeshua was telling me that He was coming back sooner than I thought and that when I saw the moon so very close to the earth would be the time when He would return for His Bride..."

It was in this article:

That was the article I shared about the 3 Supermoons of 2019. Now we are having this BLACK SUPERMOON today that may bring KING TIDES! I've been hoping God would show something significant related to:

The Peace Deal in September
Israel's Re-do Election in September
2-Year Warning ends in September

I think this is it!

As most of you know, the moon is a symbol of the Church Bride. May this UNSEEN BLACK MOON--the closest to the Earth this year--be the sign that She will be swept away by Her Lord and KING in September 2019!


  1. Lyn, only sharing...

    This year began with three full super moons, the first on 21 January, the second on 19 February, and the third on 21 March. This cycle will now end with three new super moons on 1 August. , on 30 August, and 28 September. While the North American Continent saw the Black New Supermoon on July 31, the two remaining phenomena will happen this time in Europe, respectively, on the last two dates noted earlier.

A blessed story has been witnessed in the sky and earth!! Feb 10, 1949 - Israel Emblem / Menorah
10.2.1949 The Provisional State Council confirmed the state emblem.
The National Emblem of Israel
The national emblem of the state of Israel is based on a French type heraldic shield with Menorah in the center, frame of olive branches and word “Israel”, written in Hebrew under the Menorah.
The shield is blue; the name of the state, menorah and olive branches may be white or golden.

God must have made you on a Sunday Lyn*

Lyn: Thanks for your wonderful research, vision and timely words from the Lord!

I just wanted to share a parallel vision back in 2008 or 2009 the Lord gave me. I was lying on my bed almost awake and yet not asleep. In the open vision i was standing on the horizon of the earth with Him- Yashua.. The moon was so big and full and you could feel the magnetic pull of the closeness of it to earth and myself. You could see the details of every crater and mountain. But also i could see the stars and galaxy in full technicolor. I had to keep looking at Yeshua frequently as He held my hand and kept me from passing out from sheer joy amazement and just realizing how amazing yet how real it all seemed. I will not ever forget it.
I had been a watchmen then, but a very lukewarm one. After that vision I realized that Yeshua was telling me that He was coming back sooner than I thought and that when I saw the moon so very close to the earth would be the time when He would return for His Bride...thus the lukewarm watchmen became more of what the Lord has asked me to be. A new an awakening to me since my previous 46 years of being a Christian and a pastor.
Shalom and Maranatha!
See you soon!

Ozark, dear brother--I will take that as a compliment♥

Lyn Melvin said...

Mike Young~Thank you so much for sharing your heart and story. How very, very good our Savior is to awaken you as He did AND as He has so many others.

To drive home what Y'shua, our Jesus, said to you, I want to repeat it here:

"After that vision I realized that Yeshua was telling me that He was coming back sooner than I thought and that when I saw the moon so very close to the earth would be the time when He would return for His Bride. . ."

Enjoyed the article as always. Thank you for your continued encouragement! I just wanted to add a little something as a reminder to us all. Matthew 24:14 is a prime verse speaking of the end times, and one with a very specific command "reminder" for those of us in the Royal family. The context is speaking of the struggles, and trials we as His bride will face, then 24:14 summarizes what must be accomplished (by us) before the Bridegroom's return. I'm not saying that the taking up of His bride has a prerequisite, I am simply saying we have a command to complete.

(Matt 24:14 ESV) And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

The word Kingdom in this verse (and others), is many times misunderstood. In its form in this verse it is not referring to something geographical, or even that of a specific time per se. Its meaning is actually that of the "transfer of authority" or "having the right to rule", not over a specific region, but with the meaning of over all things. It is also in the present tense, meaning a current "authority", as well as a future "authority" (e.g. in this context, from the finished work of Jesus on the cross, to the Millennial time to come, and to the rest of time ahead). This verse is referring to the finished work of the cross that destroyed the authority of death, Satan, and sin, then transferred that authority or "kingdom", to the person of Jesus Christ. Thus this "kingdom" or "right to rule" all things began at the cross, and will continue forever. That is the good news, the gospel, our blessed hope, and the message we as His bride are to take to the whole Earth. That death, Satan, and sin have been defeated, once and for all time.

My point here is this... while it encourages our hearts to look at the signs, and to realize our time is short, very short. The signs, and our departure, should not be our main focus. The fact that we are still here means that our task as His bride is not yet complete. That task of proclaiming the gospel to all the nations. Again, I'm not saying it is wrong to look for, and be encouraged by the signs of the times. I am simply saying that since we know the time is near, that we should be more focused, than ever before, to promote The Gospel. We're still here because the Bride is not yet complete. When she is, only then will we be taken home. Just as hate, evil, and chaos are now at an intensity of profound insanity like never before in history, so we as His bride should also be, to share the good news of the hope that is about to take us home. Understanding the signs of the times are indeed important, but we must stay the course, and remember that our task of taking the gospel to the whole world is of greater importance. No worries though, I do enjoy seeing the glory of His signs!

Thank You again, your brother in Christ, Maranatha! :-)

A wonderful testimony and study Lyn.
There are so many signs now and websites that explain Daniel's book of truth now
open to help us point to this time frame you mention. I can see how Math 24 lines up with Rev. 6 & 7 with Daniel pointing us to wait for the 6th seal. "When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." Luke 21:28

Lyn Melvin said...

TY Anonymous. I have struggled to understand the timing of the Rapture and am simply resting in His promise that we are not appointed to wrath--whatever that entails. So far, in my studies I believe the Overcoming Church will not be present for the 7-year period of Jacob's Trouble. For more related to this, check out:

you cant just say when it will happen, however i also think 2019 is the year of christ returning.

Keith T said...

Lyn, haven't seen you on Rev12 lately nor any recent blog posts. You presence and spirit-led comments are greatly missed. Just wanted you to know that I for one miss you very much. Blessings dear sister.

Lyn Melvin said...

Keith T~How very sweet of you to let me know I am missed! Some weeks back I left a comment at Rev12Daily to let the brethren know I am "forced" to take a hiatus because I am currently helping my husband with a couple of major projects. Not sure how long these will take to complete--at least two more months is my guess (end of May 2019).

There may be mini breaks when the Lord shows me something and I can post again--for example, did you see It was posted also by Brad:

I am hoping the Lord will come for us, His Overcoming Bride, no later than May when Israel will be entering their 71st year--see

And am hoping to meet you face to face VERY SOON, dear brother! Hugs and blessings to you and yours♥
