Bibliography
THIS BOOK REALLY WILL HELP YOU. It’s over 400 pages of no nonsense prophetic analysis and exposition that is practical and sensible and rooted to the Scriptures.
What to Pray For
Now that the book is out, I’ll be sending review copies to Christian talk radio, podcasts, and news sources, and praying for a positive reception so that more people can find out about the book. I’m also going to contact some prominent pastors, Christian leaders, and seminary teachers of eschatology that I think might consider looking into what I’ve found.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to impress upon people that this book is worth their time to investigate. People are so busy these days, and everyone claims to have some new awesome insight or a fresh take on the same old stuff, so it’s hard to be seen or heard through all of that other noise.
I don’t want the book to go anywhere if God is not for it, but I wouldn’t even be at this point if I didn’t sense that he is.
Thank you for your support, and the many encouraging emails I’ve received.
May God be with us all in the days ahead, and may he bless the offering of this book. Amen!
Blood Moon Tomorrow Night
There will be a total lunar eclipse tomorrow night (Sunday), and it will also be a supermoon. It should be visible everywhere in the U.S. and beyond, except where it is obscured by clouds. In the Black Hills of South Dakota, that means it will start about 8 pm and reach full eclipse around 9:30 pm. You can find the times that it will start in your area using the link below.

What makes this special is that it is also the time when the Jews recognize Pesach Sheni, or the second Passover that God allowed for Jews who were unable to participate in the first Passover date a month earlier (Numbers 9:6-13). Therefore, the Jews will have another opportunity to try and present a Passover sacrifice on the Temple Mount, and remember there is still a 10,000 shekel reward being offered for anyone who successfully performs the sacrifice on the Temple Mount.
Perhaps nothing will happen, but it will also be Palestinian “Nakba Day.” It’s the day that they mourn supposedly losing Israel to the Jews, but land of Israel never belonged to the Palestinians. Nevertheless, Hamas has officially warned Jews to stay away from the Mount on that day.

I see this as another confirmation that Satan, through his minions, is doing everything he can to prevent the return of the Jews to the Temple Mount. It can be easy to assume that Satan wants sacrifices to be reinstated as an affront to God, but we know that the opposite is true. The Antichrist will halt the sacrifice and the grain offering. Isaiah tells us that when Israel restores the sacrifices they will be acceptable on His altar.
Even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; For My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples. – Isaiah 56:7 NASB (emphasis mine)
This can be hard to process, but I think of it as only another temporary covering and the beginning of the process of God calling His people back to Himself, and clearly Satan is opposed to that. Therefore, Satan is against these attempts to restore the sacrificial service, and we are told that he will put a stop to the sacrifices at some point after they are restored. It may even be almost immediately after they are restarted, because we can’t know how long the sacrifices will be restored before they are halted.
And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate. – Daniel 9:27 NASB (emphasis mine)
That’s enough speculation, though, I suppose. I just wanted to comment on why these present events might be significant.
Until Next Week...
I should have more news updates for you next week, but the best way I can help you right now, is with the book, so I hope you can all get a copy, and start sending me any questions or comments that you have about it. It’s not a cheap book, $24.97 list, so if that’s a financial burden for anyone, email me and let me know and I’ll get you a copy.
Yours in Christ,
Christian Widener
