The BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS Of The Total Solar Eclipse

Seems everybody and their grandmother is excited for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE about to happen on Monday, August 21, 2017! There’s gonna be many parties, music, food, etc.! Plus there’s gonna be SO MANY AMERICANS gathered AT the “path of totality” that I’m almost beginning wonder if any possible “terrorist attacks” might happen along the path of totality, etc.

But THAT thought aside, what are the BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of such an event? Let us turn to the bible for the answer!

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” – Luke 21:25-26

 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; AND LET THEM BE FOR **SIGNS**, and for seasons, and for days, and years” – Genesis 1:14

Translation? God created the sun, moon and stars…..not ONLY to divide night from day but FOR SIGNS, etc.

Matthew 16:4 states: “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas {Jonah}. And he left them, and departed”

So what IS the “SIGN OF JONAH?”, some people may be wondering. For those not familiar with the prophet Jonah, Jonah was a prophet during the times of the Old Testament. And Nineveh was considered to be one of the bible’s most sinful cities (more sinful than Sodom & Gomorrah? I’m not sure but pretty sinful, from the bible’s description of it).

And the Lord sent Jonah to preach there, to WARN the people of the city of Nineveh to REPENT of their sins, before it was too late and their city was doomed to DESTRUCTION! And Jonah VERY RELUCTANTLY went there to preach. And many bible scholars believe that a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE happened at Nineveh (in order to convince the people to Nineveh to repent, which they DID!)

Here, down below, the following two videos give more detailed BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS of the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017!

And what’s REALLY prophetically interesting is that 7 YEARS LATER, ANOTHER total solar eclipse will pass THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, thus making a big “X” over America, as the following image demonstrates:

X OVER AMERICA

Furthermore, what’s REALLY INTERESTING is that the very “center” of the X is in the bulls-eye of THE NEW MADRID FAULT ZONE and is also where the Mississippi and Ohio rivers CONVERGE! That should tell us something, folks!

Joel 3:2 in the Old Testament even hints at the fact that GOD IS NOT PLEASED WITH ANY NATION THAT DIVIDES/TRIES TO DIVIDE THE LAND OF JERUSALEM:

“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land“.

So……..exactly WHAT is the Lord trying to TELL US by the SIGNS of the TWO solar eclipses within the period of 7 YEARS (“7” being a VERY PROPHETIC number) and with the REVELATION 12 SIGN (September 23, 2017?), which is just 33 days later (“33” ALSO being a VERY BIBLICALLY SIGNIFICANT NUMBER – Jesus was 33 when he was crucified on the cross, etc.!)

It’s a WARNING to us to REPENT because THE SOON-COMING DAY OF THE LORD WILL SHORTLY BE AT HAND! And contrary to what most people believe, the “day of the Lord” is NOT the Rapture! Instead, it is a day of GREAT WRATH!

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is **A DAY OF WRATH**, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towersAnd I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord‘s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land

Zephaniah 1:14-18

In fact, in Luke 21:7 [New Testament, Book of Luke, Chapter 21, Verse 7], and in Matthew 24:3 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Chapter 24, Verse 3], the disciples privately came to Jesus (immediately AFTER the “Sermon on the Mount” – which took place in Matthew, chapters 5 to 7)) with a question about the END TIMES and the signs of Jesus’s SOON RETURN (UPON THE EARTH):

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” – Matthew 24:7

 

And the next SEVERAL verses of Matthew 24, Jesus says the following:

 

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

 

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

 

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come”

 

[[[When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand): Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 

 

And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION, SUCH AS SUCH AS WAS NOT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD TO THIS TIME, NO, NOR EVER SHALL BE“]]].

 

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”

 

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together”

 

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shakenAnd then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together HIS ELECT from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other”

 

In other words, THE ELECT means those people that not only BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ but that OBEY HIM in any and all things! Therefore, THE ELECT (the true, OBEDIENT servants of Jesus Christ) will be taken from the Earth during THE RAPTURE while all the DISOBEDIENT SOULS – including all the LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS – will be left behind to deal with GOD’S WRATH UPON THE ENTIRE EARTH! Jesus further goes on in the chapter to state the following in verses 32-51 of Matthew 24:

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.:

 

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

 

But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

 

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: THERE SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH“.

 

Translation? Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY to Salvation and the ONLY WAY to Eternal Life! Anything OUTSIDE of Jesus Christ (including Atheism/Agnosticism) is a LIE that will send an unrepentant person to the LAKE OF FIRE! (“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” – Revelation 20:15)

So in other words, many people will go to see this “eclipse”, think it’s “just coincidence” and not GIVE a care about its ETERNAL BIBLICAL IMPLICATIONS! And so, BECAUSE they don’t care and/or see the BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE of End Times events & “celestial signs” (eclipses, etc.), they will not REPENT OF THEIR SINS and/or see a NEED to be “saved from their sins” and thus, NOT be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and THUS, WILL someday be thrown into the Lake of Fire! A place that Jesus describes as ETERNAL TORMENT (“weeping and gnashing of teeth”). Gnashing of teeth means that a person’s in SO much pain, that they start GRINDING THEIR TEETH IN SHEER PAIN/TERROR!

But folks: one thing’s for sure! GOD’S WRATH IS UPON AMERICAN, HAS **BEEN** ON AMERICA FOR QUITE SOME TIME AND WILL **CONTINUE** TO STAY ON AMERICA UNTIL SHE REPENTS OF HER DEEDS! But alas, the nation of America will NOT repent of its deeds (transgender men invading girls/womens’ facilities and/or womens’ sports, gay marriage, gay adoption, strip clubs, drinking, homosexuality/promiscuity, abortion, gambling, the drug trade, etc.)

And so BECAUSE America won’t repent of her deeds, America shall be DESTROYED! In fact, America’s SPIRITUAL STATE right now reminds me of “The Queen of Revelation 18:7:

“How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow

 

Thnk about it, folks! America is likely THE MOST ARROGANT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! She thinks she is the largest, strongest, fastest, most prosperous, most powerful & resilient country in the world! But alas…….the Lord’s Wrath is now upon her! And she, as a nation, is readying herself for A GREAT BIBLICAL FALL! 

So where is your heart today, folks? Is it with Jesus Christ & righteousness? If not, WHY? And is 5 minutes of pleasure worth an eternity in hell/the lake of fire? ASK YOURSELVES THAT, FOLKS! 

There’s no doubt in my mind that America WILL fall……it’s just a matter of HOW and WHEN! We’re lucky that the Lord loves us all enough to give us ONE LAST SIGN before his FULL WRATH begins! The total solar eclipse is a sign of his wrath……….a sign of his soon return to the Earth……..a sign to REPENT of all our sins…….and a sign that we had BETTER get all our houses in order!!!!!!!!!! There’s not much time left, folks! We’re living in the last SECONDS to MILI-SECONDS of human history!!!!!! 

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, ‘REPENT, FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!” – Matthew 4:17

 

And lastly, the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE also means, prophetically and biblically, that THE SOUL OF AMERICA (as a WHOLE) has a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART OVER JESUS AND HIS WORDS! Meaning, America (as a whole) and even many Americans (as a whole), now have A HEART THAT’S TOTALLY CLOSED OFF FROM JESUS! [Side-note: Is Bonnie Raitt’s 80-90’s song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” making pre-prophetic FUN of that fact?]. And so that’s WHY the Lord’s using the BIBLICAL SIGN of a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE…..in order to visually show the fact that our hearts (as a whole) have become BLACK AND HARDENED towards Jesus and FULL OF TOTAL DARKNESS!  

Therefore, REPENT! Before it’s too late for you! Because remember that the door to Salvation is CLOSING……..in fact, it’s ECLIPSING! JESUS’S PATIENCE TOWARDS SALVATION FOR MANKIND IS NOW *ECLIPSING!* And once the door to Salvation CLOSES, it closes PERMANENTLY! Please remember that IN the days of Noah, people were eating, drinking and being merry and being “unaware” until the flood came and took them all away! So it is with TODAY’S GENERATION! People are SPIRITUALLY BLIND AND UNAWARE! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christians: Where is YOUR focus?

Here in America, “church” and the “concept” of church has become just like a “social club”, where finely-dressed people file into a building to show other people how “godly” and “righteous” they are, and where hymns are sung for a good 40 minutes or so of the service, usually. And then there’s the talk about church budgets, tithing, etc.

Jesus Christ and the need for forgiveness of sins/salvation is hardly EVER preached (if at all!) The message of the bible has become far, far watered down. People go to church to attend “social events” or on “Christmas” or “Easter” but they hardly EVER walk away from a church sermon having truly learned something or feeling edified in their faith in God/Jesus Christ! There is little to any PHYSICAL persecution here in America for those that are Christian, other than the occasional “scuffle” between Pro-choicers vs. Pro-Lifers and social/popular media ridicule and occasional removing of prayer from schools, etc.

But in the middle East and parts of Asia and Africa, people are being MURDERED and losing THEIR VERY LIVES for their faith in Jesus Christ! Plus bibles (throughout many parts) and churches (even small “house churches”) are BANNED! Imagine if every single breath you took was living in FEAR of being killed or beheaded for your faith and there was no true rest for you and your family, day and night. That is the total physical/emotional/spiritual/psychological TURMOIL these poor folks in Christian-minority countries are having!

But the Middle East isn’t the ONLY place where Christians and Jews are being rounded up, harassed and sometimes killed. Anti-semitism is ON THE RISE all around the globe. In fact, they’ve already had Pro-Palestinian/Anti-Israel/Anti-Jew protests in France, (possibly Germany) and New York. And next is gonna come Anti-Christian rallies, you can bet on that. It’s not really a matter of IF as it is a matter of WHEN.

But Christians here in America, for the most part, just seem to have their heads in the sand! “Oh, that could NEVER happen here!”, they all say in unison. Yeah well, that’s also what the Jews thought as well during the time of Hitler and WWII. The closing of Jewish owned shops and stores was just the very beginning. But even then, many Jews didn’t read the writing on the wall and still remained in Germany. Well now, some of the Atheists/Satanists/Anti-Christian/LGBT activists are starting to purposely target “Christian businesses” and are trying to put them out of business by “filing complaints” against them, etc. Could this be the very beginning? However, UNLIKE the time right before WWII, Christians here in America don’t really have another country to flee to. It’s pretty much the same all over the globe.

Over in the Middle East, men, women and children are being CRUCIFIED and/or BEHEADED for their Christian faith! While some of them have the options of leaving, paying a heavy tax, converting to Islam or dying, some of them aren’t so lucky. Christian homes are being “marked” by Qur’an-obeying Muslims. Christians in the Middle East, I’m told, don’t even sleep in their own homes anymore, they sleep out in the fields or in refugee camps. This is a sad, sad time in the name of humanity, INDEED! ;(

While American Christians are deciding what to wear on a Sun-day service for a watered down gospel, Christians in the Middle East are losing their very LIVES and livelihoods for the gospel! If they’re caught with a bible or with bible in hand, they’ve pretty much already signed their death certificates, as far as Qur’an-obeying-Muslims are concerned. And the bodies of the dead Christians are often left behind as a “reminder” for the Middle Easterners not to stray from Islam. And unlike the CNN news reports, Islam is NOT a religion of peace, it’s a religion of DEATH and DESTRUCTION! The Quran calls for the DEATH of the “infidel”. And the “infidel” is Jews and Christians. And the Quran calls for “beheading” of the “infidel”, which is WHY there’s so many beheadings now of Christians in the Middle East.

But I ask you THIS: where is YOUR focus? And where is your faith in Jesus Christ at, right now? Would you be ready and willing to DIE for your faith, if necessary and if threatened with death? If you don’t have the TYPE of faith in Jesus Christ, where, if you were threatened with death and/or torchure today, my personal prayer is that you would cry and call out to the Lord Jesus now to GET that type of faith. Because ya NEVER know when the next “bomb” will go off, when the next “riot” will be, when the next “crazy gunman” will come and start shooting up the place you’re at. Ya never know. So if you’re not ready to die today for your faith in Jesus Christ, then you need to GET READY! And again, I don’t say that to scare you but to prepare you!

I once saw this very good message on Godtube where a person portraying Jesus Christ asked a Christian the following critical question: “how can you DIE for me when you can’t even LIVE FOR ME?” In other words, the message was, if we’re not effective witnesses for Christ (by our words, by how we live for Christ by following the 10 commandments, helping those in need, treating people with patience, kindness, humility, etc.), then we’re not going to be effective martyrs for Christ. And if our lives “for” Jesus are in vain, then any purported death “for” Jesus will ALSO be in vain. Do you get what I’m saying, here?

The Book of Revelation in the New Testament (believe it or not) says in Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years”.

So in other words, the book of Revelation is possibly suggesting some sort of Islamic warfare against true Christians during the Tribulation as Islam calls for its faithful followers to “behead the infidels” (in this case, the “infidels” being Jews and Christians and all those who refuse to convert to Islam, I suppose) and, as Revelation 20:4 states, many true witnesses of Jesus Christ were BEHEADED for their testimony of/faith in Jesus Christ and his holy divine words in the bible! And during the Tribulation, many Christians will be deceived into thinking that Allah and the God of the bible are the same God but alas, they are NOT, MARK MY WORDS!

Don’t be deceived! For when they say “Allah al-Akbar”, they are saying “Allah is greater”. And remember in the Old Testament when Satan said “I will be greater than the Most High. I will ascend my throne above the stars of God?” Put two and two together and what do you get? Allah is Satan, repackaged, I’m sorry to say. And it grieves my very soul very much to even have to be writing this, even. Because I’m sure many Muslims out there (who were born and raised in the Muslim faith) truly have NO IDEA who “Allah” really is and whom the God of the bible really is (Jesus Christ Almighty!) Jesus Christ is MORE than just a prophet, he’s the TRUE SON OF GOD, as well as God Incarnate! There is much, much archaeological evidence that proves the Holy Bible (and none to date that I know of that support anything in the Qu’ran). Plus there are SEVERAL non-Christian eyewitness accounts that prove Jesus’s crucifixion, resurrection and consequent ascension to heaven:

http://factreal.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/nonchristians-prove-jesus-resurrection/

And although it is argued WHO gave him the poisoned meat (his wife Aisha, a Jewish woman servant, etc.), Muhammad died from eating poisoned meat. He knew it was poisoned AFTER he started eating it but not before. Jesus Christ, on the other hand, knew everything that was gonna happen, YEARS before it happened. Notice the difference, here?

But anyways, my point is THIS: Jesus Christ is the one and ONLY true living God in the flesh and we need to put all our faith, trust, love and obedience in HIM and him, ALONE! While all other religions offer a “maybe/not 100% way” to get to “eternal paradise”, Jesus Christ Almighty provides a 100% ASSURED way to get to “Eternal Paradise”, someday. While all other religions promise a way out of “the fires of hell/condemnation”, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins/eternal life/escape from eternal condemnation.

While all other religions promise “enlightenment”, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to set a person’s soul free! While all other religions proclaim “healing”, Jesus Christ Almighty is the ONLY one that can truly heal people & perform miracles in one’s life! (Note: when a seeming “miracle” happens by something/someone other than Jesus Christ himself, a COUNTERFEIT MIRACLE has occurred and the “miracle” did NOT happen by God/Jesus Christ, so please be forewarned!)

But the bottom line is, WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS? If you were to die tonight or tomorrow in your sleep or by some other means, would you have 100% assurance of going to eternal paradise someday? How do you know for sure? To put your faith, trust, love and obedience into ANYTHING other than Jesus Christ is vanity, pure vanity. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins, the ONLY way to have everlasting life/entrance into Eternal Paradise someday, and the ONLY way to truly be set free from all the sin and spiritual “darkness” gripping today’s world!

So won’t you come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, TODAY? Because tomorrow is not certain or guaranteed. We never know when we’re going to die. And when we die, (as in, COMPLETELY die, not partially die during an N.D.E.), it’s too late, there’s NO 2nd chances. So instead of putting your faith, trust, love and obedience into a FALSE god that CAN’T guarantee you Eternal Paradise and forgiveness of sins, put your faith, trust, love and obedience into an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God (Jesus Christ Almighty) that CAN guarantee you Eternal Paradise and Forgiveness of Sins!

And be prepared to hold ONTO to that faith if it takes the death of you! Because remember that Christians in Asia and the Middle East die for their faith every single day! And the Lord no doubt counts those folks as more than worthy/honorable, in his site! Is he going to count YOU worthy? Because remember: a faith worth living for is ALSO a faith worth dying for and a faith worth dying for is ALSO a faith worth living for.

“Lord Jesus, I pray for all the Muslims out there today that haven’t yet come to a saving knowledge OF and faith IN you. I pray that you open up their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits to receive your eternal truth in the bible. And please protect them from all the non-Christian sources that would attempt to persecute/threaten them and their families. And please give them the type of faith in you that’s SO strong, that they would proudly die for it, if they had to. Instead of them dying for a false god (Allah), instead allow them to die for the one and only TRUE God (Jesus Christ Almighty). Please love them and sustain them from any and all persecution they might endure as a result of coming to faith in YOU, Lord.

And for all the Christians here in America, please give them a RENEWED faith in you that’s SO strong, that nothing or no-one will be able to stand in the way of their faith in YOU, Lord. Please give them the courage to suffer severe persecution and/or to die for their faith, if they have to. Please give them the strength and the courage to “go against the system” and to NOT take the mark of the beast, when the time comes. Also please renew their focus and make their focus be on YOU, Lord and nothing/no-one else. Please help their faith not to falter, NO MATTER WHAT, in these here End Times. And please bless them and keep them for all eternity. Amen”.
