Listen and listen good. The time is Very near for things to come to a close here. The Illuminati is a real org. A very close lady of mine living in San Antonio Heights was involved with them. She made alot of money with many of the 13. She however has been misled by them. I do have extensive knowledge of future events. Illuminati are in for a rude awkening. The God in the Bible is not what he claims and two Gods before him that chose him have removed him from power. The Illuminati counted on the Jewish God to hand them a new world in the revelation. They are making a huge money grab now in hopes to buy a way into a heaven. The true Lords of this place will refuse. The truth about all Jehovah's lies is what will take place on the day of revelation. If he is a God of truth why does his book have such mystery? The truth is in the Taura. Yes he was never going to take anyone but his Jewish people and the most wealthy. He failed. He no longer has power and the 2 true creators are soon going to show the world the truth. I have very powerful spiritual gifts and have quietly waited for the day that this is going to happen. Very, very soon now. Count on it! I walked into that Masonic temple in San Antonio heights unmolested and spoke to Jehovah's lying face many years ago and told him his day is coming and he is a fool for tricking my dear GF into doing that illuminati crap. Trust me the day will be here soon! Real soon.
It’s a once-in-a-generation pairing: the start of astronomical summer and emergence of the full “Strawberry Moon.”
This coming together hasn’t happened since 1967, recalled by some as the “Summer of Love,” and won’t occur again until June 21, 2062 (using Universal Time), according to EarthSky.org.
Be aware that, as we’re figuring all this, we’re using Universal Time (UT or its variant UTC), what used to be called Greenwich Mean Time. Universal Time is the favorite of astronomers because it applies to Earth as a whole. What if we used other time zones? Well, for instance, if we use U.S. time zones, the last full moon and the June solstice actually coincided on June 21, 1986.
On June 20, 2016, the moon turns full at 11:02 UTC. The solstice arrives some 11.5 hours later, at 22:34 UTC.
This announce acceleration in the pace of incoming change, the end of a turmoil epoch and the beginning of an entirely different one. Last time this happened was before great disasters of the space race for America and USSR, during the great escalation of Vietnam war, there were massive protests against that conflict and claiming for a rebuild of civilization based on love and push great social causes, expressed in the pop Art and Music of that time. It happened last time in 1967, it will be again in 2062.
Mitchel of Nostradamus, Century VIII Quatrain 77
The Third Antichrist will soon be annihilated,
Twenty-Seven years his war will last.
The Unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
With blood, human bodies,
water and red hail covering the earth.
