Many of you have no doubt heard about the upcoming total eclipse that will span across the United States this coming August 21st However, you may not realize that this eclipse may have significant prophetic meaning.
This eclipse is very rare because it tracks across the entire United States from west to east and it is a TOTAL eclipse, which means the sun will be completely blocked out. Here's a map of the past eclipses from from 1950 to 2000. The eclipses in blue are total eclipses. The ones in yellow are partial.
The last time a TOTAL eclipse CROSSED the United States was June 8th 1918!
This 2017 eclipse will turn day to night for TWO minutes and will be the most observed, filmed, and studied eclipse in American History.
Big deal you might say. But wait, there's more. There will be ANOTHER TOTAL Eclipse that crosses the United States just SEVEN years later, in effect marking the US with a Giant X.
Hmm. Seven. Where have I heard that number before? Wait! I know. That's one of God's favorite numbers.
The number 7 is used 735 times in the Bible (54 times in the book of Revelation). If we include how many times 'sevenfold' (6) and 'seventh' (119) is used, our total jumps to 860 references.
Seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both physical and spiritual). According to Jewish tradition, the creation of Adam occurred on October 7th, 3761 B.C. (or the first day of Tishri, which is the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar). There are 7 days in a week and God's Sabbath is on the 7th day.
The Bible was originally divided into 7 major divisions. They are 1) the Law; 2) the Prophets; 3) the Writings, or Psalms; 4) the Gospels and Acts; 5) the General Epistles; 6) the Epistles of Paul; and 7) the book of Revelation. The total number of originally inspired books was forty-nine, or 7 x 7, demonstrating the absolute perfection of the Word of God.
In the book of Revelation there are seven churches, seven angels to the seven churches, seven seals, seven trumpet plagues, seven thunders and the seven last plagues.
There are 7 annual Holy Feast Days for the Jewish people, declared by God in Scripture. Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, First Fruits, Rosh Hashana, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles.
And The Tribulation or Daniel's 70th week lasts 7 years.
I find it extremely interesting that this very RARE eclipse (the first one) is happening just 33 days before the Great Sign of September 23 from Revelation 12. I also find it extremely interesting that just 7 years later another TOTAL eclipse will cross the US again (EXTREMELY RARE) and form an X over the nation. Is God trying to get our attention? Is He trying to tell us something? Has America drifted too far from Him, slid too far into apostasy and wickedness? I don't know.
What I do know is that God told us He would put Signs in the sky. (Genesis 1:14). Jesus, Himself told us that right before His coming, we would see Signs in the sun, moon, and stars
And there will be signs
in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of
nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;26 men’s
hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which
are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Luke 21:25-16
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.
What should we make of this? I leave you to decide
Greetings beloved of the Most High! Here's this week's news. Of particular note this week is what's going on at Yellowstone and the incredibly swift rise of the LGBTQ anti-Christian agenda. I also added some good news at the end that will encourage you! The light always grows beside the darkness!
Warning: If you want to stick your head in the sand and continue on with your life and pretend that the this present age isn't coming to a close, please read no further! (I'm not trying to be rude, just honest) These posts are sometimes hard to digest because so much of what I report on isn't reported in regular news, and seeing it all here at once can be daunting. I meet so many believers who don't want to know what's going on, who are happy with their comfy American lives. (Including most pastors) It saddens me. We are told to watch and pray by Jesus Himself. How can we do any less?
Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters, They see the works of the Lord, And His wonders in the deep. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, Which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, They go down again to the depths; Their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven.
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born Revelation 12:1-4
If you follow my blog, you know I'm really interested in this Revelation 12 sign. If you don't know what I mean, click on the Rapture Sign of 2017 at the top of this page. I've been talking about this sign for quite some time because it is occurring exactly as described in the Scriptures this year (2017) in September and it hasn't occurred for over 7000 years. Also, it's a rapture verse due to its use of the word rapture or harpazo. Anyway, I encourage you to read it if you haven't already. What I didn't discuss in that article was the identity of the dragon mentioned in the verses. Since the Bible interprets the Bible, let's look for other verses that mention 7 heads and 10 horns. (Though I bet you can guess who this is) Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name Rev 13:1
Daniel the great prophet also talks about a beast with 10 horns
After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. Daniel 7:7
Gabriel reveals to Daniel who this fourth beast is The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces. The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High,
In Revelation 17, the angel talking with the Apostle John gives us a great deal of information about this beast with 10 horns. I encourage you to read it for yourself, though I'll summarize here.
There is a woman who sits on the beast who is named Babylon and who is drunk with the blood of the saints. The seven heads are seven mountains on which she sits. The waters upon which she sits are many peoples, nations, multitudes and tongues. (This is the one world religion, which had its origins in Babylon. She sits on the beast for awhile until he destroys her)
The beast is the final world empire of the Antichrist. The ten horns are ten kings who will give their allegiance to the Antichrist. Daniel tells us that the Antichrist will subdue 3 of those kings.
There's a lot more information in both of these chapters you can read for yourself, but for the purposes of this post, I believe I've proven that the dragon with the 10 horns and 7 heads is the Satanic final kingdom of the Antichrist.
So, why would Satan wish to devour the woman's child? Many have interpreted this to mean that Satan, through King Harod, tried to kill Jesus when He was just a babe in Bethlehem. If so, this begs the question, why then does it say in the very next verse that Jesus was raptured up to heaven immediately. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. (caught = same greek word harpazo that the Apostle Paul uses in 1 Thess 4:17)
Jesus was never raptured, and he certainly wasn't transported to heaven right after His birth.
It would make more sense to interpret this passage as being the church finally born (every person God calls to salvation has come into the Body of Christ) and Satan (and his Antichrist system) desperate to destroy this "new creation", this new race of perfect beings who will be both kings and priests. But no sooner are they (we) born, then we are raptured up to heaven out of his grasps!.
What's even more interesting is that right after this happens, it says war breaks out in heaven between Michael (the great archangel over Israel) and his angels and the dragon and his angels... and Satan loses. Since Revelation is a book of future prophecy, I believe this war in heaven is in the future and will happen shortly after the rapture.
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
So now, Satan is stuck on the earth and without the church, he is finally able to create his final empire and put the Antichrist in charge.
So, I began to wonder... if the Sign of Revelation 12 will be physically displayed in the stars, what about the dragon? Is there some star alignment or planetary presence that represents the dragon?
Turns out there is. Rather than blab on and on, I'm going to embed this video for you to watch. It's only 16 minutes. Please watch and give me your thoughts.
There are many other people talking about this on the internet. I encourage you to do your own homework. Is this the dragon or is it something else? Who knows? I just find it very very interesting.
There's also another theory that involves the constellation Hydra (which is the 7-headed serpent)
Here's a great video which shows that. The entire video is good but if you want to skip to the Hydra part, it starts at 29:00.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; Genesis 1:14
The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard Psalm 19:1-3
I DID NOT WRITE this! A friend of mine copied it from a Christian Web site. However, it was so well-written and compelling, I wanted to post it on my blog. I wish I could give credit where credit is due, but alas, I have no idea who the author is.
I had a conversation with a woman from Canada. Her granddaughter, in
first grade in a public school, was approached on the playground by a
boy her age who was dressed in girls’ clothes. “I want to play with
you,” he said. “Well, I don’t want to play with you,” she responded.
The boy walked away. Soon after, he came back with the playground supervisor, who informed the girl that she had to be friends with the boy.
Since when do school authorities get to decide who our children’s friends are?
This is just a microcosm of what society is doing with transgenderism: demanding that we all embrace it. Systematically eliminating our power to think otherwise.
To me, the despotic playground supervisor is an emblem of just how aggressively society is moving to impose and enforce this revolutionary transformation. Disapproving of transgenderism has suddenly become a thought-crime, a la George Orwell.
who object to men in their public bathrooms and dressing rooms are
being told they just have to live with it. Employees who instruct men to
leave these facilities are being fired.
This goes far beyond morality. To
accept society’s approval of fornication, adultery, pornography,
homosexuality and same-sex “marriage” is to reject the authority of the
Bible. Now, though, society is demanding that we reject reality. That we pretend biology itself is an illusion.
occurs in the mind. No expert can point to any physiological or
biological evidence to support it. A doctor who diagnoses “cross-gender
identification” has nothing to go by besides what the person claims to be feeling. Yet
based on such claims, a psychiatrist can recommend that a child live as
someone of the opposite sex, and even, eventually, to undergo
sex-reassignment surgery—genital mutilation.
else is invasive, irreversible surgery performed on healthy organs,
particularly in absence of medical tests to confirm a diagnosis, based
solely on a patient feeling there
is a problem? Yet in America, taxpayer money has gone toward doing just
that on soldiers, government workers, prisoners and private citizens.
As precipitously as this revolution is occurring, however, it can’t be fast enough for some people.
The New York Times published
an article a couple weeks ago called “How to Raise a Feminist Son.” It
scolded us parents for “confining” our sons by discouraging them from
having “feminine” interests and teaching them to be tough. It advised us
to let our boys cry, to teach them how to do housework and care for
children, and to instruct them to recognize the terrible sex stereotypes
in The Berenstain Bears. Under a drawing of a boy wearing a sunhat, large shades and a pearl necklace, the article said, “Let him be himself.” Actively fight traditional sex norms. And if he has gender confusion, by all means encourage that.
This push for transgenderism has simply exploded in
just a couple short years. What in the world is society going to look
like 10 years from now—or even five, or two—after we’ve deliberately raised our kids to be gender-dysphoric and pansexual?
is hurtling down this weird, delusional road—seemingly without
considering just how bizarre and treacherous it must inevitably get.
Denying the very existence of male and female necessitates restructuring
whole segments of our culture. Sex segregation naturally occurs
everywhere. The contortions this will put us through over public
facilities, sports participation, military service, family composition,
the role of science in reproduction, and countless other areas are
impossible to foresee. Not even Karl Marx—with his abolition of the
family and advocacy of a “community of women” in place of
marriage—conceived of a completely sexless society.
But most alarmingly, such a revolution cannot take place without force. When a lie becomes orthodoxy—when truth must give way to fantasy—when it becomes expected that everyone enthusiastically endorse pure deceit—such utopianism can only be brought into being with the bullying power of the state. You simply cannot rewrite reality on such a scale without THE MUSCLE OF AUTHORITARIANISM.
is coming—and fast. We get a peek at that future in a playground
supervisor demanding that a little girl befriend a boy in a dress.
Sodom and Gomorrah adopted homosexuality and other sexual perversions. But I don’t believe that even these cities—notorious for their rank wickedness—ever rejected the very reality of male and female! We have outdone them.
Don’t mistake God’s restraint for tolerance. He promises that we will suffer Sodom’s fate.
Even if they scare you! Even if you're not interested in end times, at least skim these news items. It's vitally important that we believers know what's going on in the world. We are not supposed to stick our heads in the sand. We are exhorted to "Watch" more than twenty times in the New Testament by both Jesus and the Apostles. "Watch and pray." Jesus is coming back for a bride who has made herself ready and who is looking for Him, not one who is asleep.
We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies Romans 8:22-23
