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! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There Will Be/Are Scoffers In The Last Days

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lustsAnd saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” – 2 Peter 3:3 [New Testament, 2nd book of Peter, Chapter 3, verse 3]

One does NOT have to look far to see that there are SEVERAL “mockers” and “scoffers” in the last days. But what many people don’t realize is that “last days scoffers/mockers” were PROPHESIED in the bible over 4,000 some years ago!

These clips, sadly, are just a very small tip of the iceberg! There’s SO many, many more that I don’t have time to post! But know THIS: what the Lord has said would happen at the “End of Days” IS NOW HAPPENING…….and if that’s not a sign of the Lord’s soon return, then I don’t know what is!

However, as THIS guy points out, there is a point of “spiritual probation”. And once that “spiritual probation” time passes, it’s too late! People’s eternal fates (by the time of “probation closing”) have already been sealed! So don’t go thinking that you have all the way up to the time Jesus and his angels part the sky like a scroll to repent……..

And like I said, the videos down below are just a small “sample” of all the mocking/scoffing going on in today’s world. And the mocking/scoffing INCREASES (not surprisingly) by the year, month and even DAY! But know THIS, folks: the more and more “mocking/scoffing” there is towards Jesus Christ/Yeshua/the bible in the world, the closer and closer the Lord Jesus’s/Yeshua’s return is! But WHEN the Lord returns, he won’t be coming with peace but with a sharp two-edged sword! That’s what the bible states. 

And what’s REALLY sad is that all these mockers/scoffers down below seem to have NO IDEA of the eternal condemnation that awaits them……or don’t care…….one of the two. And like I said, these mockers/scoffers are just ones of MANY:

Jay-Z & Kanye West Mock Jesus

NOTE: If you watched any of the above videos and said to yourself, “oh come on, it’s not THAT bad”, then you need to kindly re-examine the reasons of WHY you think it’s “not that bad”. The lady in the last video (the “belly dancer”) honestly looks DEMONICALLY POSSESSED at certain parts of the video if you watch it real closely! But see, that’s the problem. This world and the people OF this world have become SO desensitized to “Jesus/bible mocking” that they don’t even really see it as a “problem”, anymore! 

It always personally saddens and angers me whenever someone mocks Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua. For these people have NO IDEA what they’re truly saying! For if they TRULY realized the hell/lake of fire that they were headed for after this life and truly realized the total SIGNIFICANCE of what Jesus Christ/Yeshua did for mankind on the cross for ETERNAL forgiveness of sins, they’d quickly change their tune! But mostly, it’s a thing of PRIDE! People don’t like someone else (in this case, Almighty God) holding the reigns. They’d rather be in charge of their OWN destiny and fate!

BUT…….they’re not Almighty God, they didn’t create the universe and the heavens. They don’t have the eternal “say so” that they so desire. And see, that’s where Satan and his demons come in………they LIE to humanity and try to TELL THEM things such as: “You can be in charge of your own destiny”. But if THAT were so, there would BE no Revelation 20:10 which states, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE in today’s world laugh off the concept of “hell” and say things like, “I don’t CARE if I go to hell, party on, whew hew!” However, those people should do this simple “exercize”. They should take the flame from a small lighter, then hold their hand over that flame……..and then imagine a flame that’s 10,000 times hotter than THAT flame……while ALSO imagining if their WHOLE ENTIRE BODY was being burned and consumed ALIVE in that flame……with NO OTHER HUMANS AROUND for companionship……a place in which Jesus says there will “WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH”. Hhhmmm, doesn’t sound like such a “party” afterall, now, does it? For it is a place of ETERNAL TORMENT!!!!!! 

fire, eternal hell

Proverbs 1:22 and 1:26 state: How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?” I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh”

In other words, the Lord will MOCK mockers! And he will LAUGH when their fear cometh!

Luke 21:26 says: 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”

Proverbs 3:24 says: “Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly”

All of the mockers and SNL-type syndicates are laughing NOW……..but once eternity hits, and once the Eternal Judgement seat of Christ opens up and they realize that Jesus is real and that his eternal judgement is REAL, it suddenly won’t be a “joke” anymore!

They’ll find themselves on the wrong end of God’s ETERNAL WRATH and they’ll be HYSTERICALLY CRYING OUT AND SCREAMING something along the lines of: “We were wrong, Jesus! We were wrong! Please forgive us! Please give us another chance! Please don’t send us to the flames! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE FORGIVE US, O LORD JESUS, THOU MIGHTY SON OF GOD!” But sadly, it’ll be too late for these folks. And THE MOST PAINFUL REALIZATION “IN” the eternal flames of torment will be that they could’ve prevented it, HAD they truly listened to the Lord and all his prophets! 

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity – [Matthew 7:21-23]

The simple truth is that “mockers/scoffers” truly have NO IDEA of the hell/eternal condemnation in the flames that they’re headed for……..and if they DO have a clue, then they honestly think “it’s not going to be that bad”. However, WEEPING AND KNASHING OF TEETH? That sure doesn’t sound like such a smooth-flowing “party” to ME, how about YOU? 

But the sad reality is that us biblical-roots Christians can preach and preach about hell/eternal condemnation till we’re blue in the face. But the truth is that if people don’t want to listen, they won’t! And there’s nothing we can say or do (WHEN a person refuses to listen to the Lord’s gospel/message), except pray and wait for the Holy Spirit to do his work in those people! Because UNTIL their spiritual eyes are opened, they will REFUSE to see!

I know it’s hard when people refuse to believe in the gospel or the reality of God’s existence. I also know it’s hard when people close to you refuse to listen to the gospel of Salvation. But you can’t give up, folks! You must STILL keep on trying! Think back to when YOU were a non-believer……would YOU have wanted some “Christian” to have given up on YOU back then, when you were still a non-believer? NO! Ofcourse not! So DON’T give up on others! Don’t give up on your non-believing friends, family and coworkers……for as long as there’s still breath in their lungs, there’s STILL HOPE that their spiritual eyes might be opened to Jesus’s everlasting gospel of eternal life AND Salvation!

One approach I sometimes employ is what I call the “Revelation 21-22 approach”. I’ll suggest a person reads the entire two chapters of Revelation 21 and 22. And then, I’ll suggest, “Wouldn’t you WANT to be in a place where there’s no pain, no tears or suffering, ONLY happiness?” Most would agree that they would. So then I’ll PROCLAIM, “well, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to this place of eternal life and Salvation”.

Some get offended (especially if they’re Hindu, Muslim, etc.) Others get seemingly confused, as they were taught that “ALL PATHS LEAD TO ONE” (Satan’s false teaching!) And yet others aren’t sure WHAT to think. But we DO know that John 14:6 expressedly states: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me“. 

In other words, Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal life, the ONLY way to eternal salvation and the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins. There IS no other way! 

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12 

The Virgin Mary won’t save you, ALLAH won’t save you, Joseph Smith won’t save you, Brahma/Krishna/Vishnu won’t save you, Buddha won’t save you, SATAN/Wiccan goddessess won’t save you, you get the picture…….

You have two choices and two choices, ONLY! You can live a life FOR Jesus/Yeshua or you can live a life that’s AGAINST Jesus/Yeshua. You’re free to choose which option you want to do. But what you’re NOT free of is the ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES of said choice. So choose wisely.  

P.S.: I pray in the name of Jesus that ALL those who mock Christ – rather famous or non-famous – no matter if it’s one time or several times, will be given another chance for salvation. For Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Eternal Salvation and Eternal Life. There IS no other way! Amen.
