"High Alert for Av 9, Av 15 and Av 23"

Dear Doves:

1) We are now in the mourning period of 3 weeks from Tammuz 17(6/30) to Av 9(7/21).

     21 means Exceeding Sinfulness of Sin.

     This period could be the last chance God allows to repent and clean the temple.

     "Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

       If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is Holy,

       which temple you are"  (1 Corinthians 3: 16-17)

     A message of Tisha B'Av is in agreement with a theme of Hanukkah.

     Hanukkah last year started from the sunset of 12/11, and it's 222 days from 12/11/17 to this Av 9.

     Since Av is the 11th month by the Jewish civil calendar, Av 9 can be read as 911.

2) 7 days from Tisha B'Av is Tu B'Av(7/27) which is the Day of Love and Romance.

     7/27 is the 5th full moon from Purim when the funeral for Billy Graham was held on 3/2.

     5 means Grace which represents the Church Age.

     This site claims that prophetically Tu B'Av pictures our marriage to the Lamb of God.


     In 1994, 21 fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 collided with Jupiter from 7/16(Av 9) to 7/22 for 7 days.

     It's 24(8+8+8) years from it to this Av 9 - Av 15.

3) Av 23 is 8/4 which is O's birthday.

    8/4 is 216th day of the year, and 6x6x6 is 216.

    6+6+6 is 18, and O's name has 18 letters of the alphabet.

    It's 44(Death & Destruction) days from Summer Solstice(6/21) to 8/4, and O is the 44th President. 

    It was 8/4 when the 2nd temple was destroyed by Romans on Av 9, AD70.

    It was 8/4 when US flag fell on the ground during the medal ceremony in 2012 London Olympics.

    It's 234 days from the second day of Hanukkah last year to this coming 8/4.


Tu B'Av - Holiday of Love and Romance

Since Biblical times the Tu B'Av has been celebrated as a holiday of love and affection, and in modern Israel it is celebrated as a sort of Valentine's Day (though it is a much older holiday that St. Valentine's Day).
