2017 Total Eclipse across America - Prophetic warning?

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.
Joel 2:28-32 

What should we make of this?  I leave you to decide

But whatever you do, stay strong in Him. 


  1. I have been up in Ontario ,Canada to my grandson' s wedding --a very busy and wonderful time. I have missed reading the Cross and Cutlass. So here goes ! I absolutely am in awe of all you do to help us dig deeper into God's Word. This is by far so interesting and mind blowing that I wrote by hand each word. How fascinating yet scary is this total eclipse coming our way in August the 21st. Then September 23,2017 another very important date. I found the facts of 7s and how you put it all down fascinating . The signs in the sky and the eclipse and the words from Joel all come together so if we can only open up our minds and our hearts and not allow our daily life to cloud God's Word- the real deep meaning to His Word -- and keep our eyes not only on Jesus Christ --but to the sky to see what God has promised. The Day That Christ Returns!
    I pray that those in my family and circle of friends - who half believe -- sort of believe-- or kind of believe-- will Come To Believe. I know God answers prayers and now is the time to become bolder and not worry whose toes I step on. Jesus Christ is Coming and I don't want them to be left behind.
    Thank you for your obedience to what God would have you do.
    Love you MaryLu๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

    1. Congratulations to your grandson, Elsie!! I'm glad you had fun and a safe journey home! I, too, have many in my family who (like you so aptly put) half believe, sort of believe, kind of believe, maybe believe, or don't believe. SIGH. It is heartbreaking and I pray for them every day. Yes, God DOES answer prayers!! And He loves to answer prayers to save people. He LOVES everyone so much. If only people knew His love, they'd come running into His arms.
      We must be Bereans of the Word, and not just listen to pastors and teachers (as wonderful as some of them are) Only the Holy Spirit can guide us into all truth. Unfortunately, most people lazily just repeat what they heard a pastor say without really seeking the truth themselves. There is so much in the Bible! We haven't even plumbed half it's depth. Welcome home, Elise! Hugs to you!
