The Great American Eclipse and Revelation 12 Event – Part 2

As with all major “end time” events, finding the unbiased, human perspective that makes the most sense or is nearest to the truth is always a major obstacle. For those of us watching, it can be frustrating at times.

We are now 12 days from the September 23rd Revelation 12 event. Is it hype or Hope?? Watch the most unbiased, excellent commentary out there in my humble opinion.Video is below.

On another subject, the UN International Day of Peace is September 21st. Established in 1982, it is a holiday observed annually on 21 September and dedicated to world peace. What makes it interesting this year is the theme:

“Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.”

It coincides with the 1st day of Rosh Hashanah and interestingly, sounds very similar to:

1Th 5:3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape”.

Whether it is this year or next….. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh Jas 5:8

The Great American Eclipse and Revelation 12 Event

By now you should have heard about what is fast becoming one of the most controversial subjects on the internet. August 21st marks a total solar eclipse visible only to the United States. Nine days prior to this event on August 12th will be the brightest shower in the recorded human history. 

This meteor shower is being considered as once in a lifetime opportunity as the next meteor shower of such kind will be after 96 years.

Then on September 23rd will occur the alignment of stars and planets to depict the Revelation 12 scene. Some are adamant this exact alignment has not happened in the last 7,000 years of history.

On the one side, many see the Revelation 12 event as a date for the Rapture, while on the other side they completely dismiss this idea without any other insight into these two events.

Clearly the Rapture cannot be dated as given by the doctrine of immanency in the bible. The book of Titus was written by the Apostle Paul to Titus, a brother in Christ, as a letter of encouragement. Two thousand years ago we see Paul looking for the coming of Christ.

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;Tit 2:13

BUT, we can see the day approaching “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching Heb 10:25

So while the Revelation 12 event is most likely not the date for the Rapture, it and the eclipse cannot be taken as pure coincidence either. Maybe the Rapture will take place between these two events, only God knows…..it is very likely though that they represent the Rapture or some other big prophetic event is just on the horizon. We shall see!

Perhaps James says it best ” Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” Jas 5:8

One of the best videos on this topic is below. It takes a stance on both sides of the coin and lets the listener decide on the coming eclipse.

 

 

Jerusalem Watch

For First Time in Millennia, Jewish Priests Will Undergo Training to Enter Temple’s Holy of Holies

For the first time in 2,000 years, a group of Kohanim (men of the Jewish priestly caste) living close to Jerusalem’s Old City are studying the relevant Jewish laws to be able to ascend the Temple Mount and enter the Holy of Holies, where God’s presence is said to dwell.

Despite Arab threats, thousands march around Old City walls, marking beginning of Tisha B’Av.

 

Jesus is the only solution, and one day He will come for His people.

In leaked recording, US President Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor sounds uncertain whether the administration could find a ‘unique’ solution to the decades old conflict; addressing the Temple Mount crisis, he says ‘a lot of seemingly logical measures taken that somehow became a little bit incendiary.’

The Gap Fact

This topic has always been one of controversy, but is vital to the understanding of the overall biblical narrative. I have written extensively on it and would highly recommend reading the post below if you are new to this subject in the order given. You may want to start with the video of, in my opinion, two biblical scholars that discuss the Gap.

As you listen and read, keep in mind the following verses:

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1Jo 1:5

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Gen 1:2

The 9th of Av_Revisited

The prophetic landscape has been relatively calm since the election of November 2016. The world stock market economies are flourishing and the world “seems” to be on the road to recovery, at least on the surface that is. But we know beneath the endless mirage of pomp and show is a swirling pit of destruction, slowly but surely coming to fruition. It seems we are quickly running out of time and something big is coming very soon; should it be the Rapture or a large prophetic fulfillment, time will tell.

The unrest at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is quickly coming to a head and as I write this post, it is currently the 9th of Av in Israel. We know the Temple mount belongs to Israel, but there rages a seemingly endless, fierce debate as to whom it belongs too. Let us not forget the words of the Lord below:

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. Zec 12:2

Whether we see prophecy unfold on this day or in the near future, it is important to know that historically the 9th of Av has been a day of judgment against Israel. Below are the details from a previous post.

  • After Moses sent 12 spies into the land of Canaan, the spies return on the eighth day of Av and report that the land is unconquerable. That night, the 9th of Av, the people cry. They did not believe that God could help them, and the people as a whole were persuaded that it was not possible to take the land. As a result, the entire nation was made to wander in the desert for 40 years Numbers 13, 14.
  • The First Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av (423 BCE).
  • The second Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av (68 CE).
  • Betar, the last stronghold in the heroic Bar Kochba rebellion, fell to the Romans on the 9th of Av of the year 3893 (133 CE) after a three-year siege. 580,000 Jews died by starvation or the sword, including Bar Kochba, the leader of the rebellion.
  • The Jews of England were expelled by King Edward I on the 9th of Av in 1290.
  • The Jews of Spain were expelled by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella on the 9th of Av of 1492, terminating many centuries of flourishing Jewish life in that country.
  • World War II and the Holocaust, historians conclude, was actually the long drawn-out conclusion of World War I that began in 1914. Germany declared war on Russia, effectively catapulting the First World War into motion, on the 9th of Av.

Ironically, even though the Temple mount belongs to Israel, the actual temple was most likely in the City of David a few hundred feet below the disputed mount. Thanks to my watcher friend Jason, attached is an excellent video that provides overwhelming evidence for the real location of the temple and resolves the issue of how Israel will be able to build the coming temple.

In another prophetic move, Putin signs Syria base deal, cementing Russia’s presence there for half a century.

And… “An artificial intelligence system being developed at Facebook has created its own language. It developed a system of code words to make communication more efficient. Researchers shut the system down when they realized the AI was no longer using English”.

In the words of Jesus as He stated many times, it is more important now than ever to: “And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch”. Mar 13:37

The Kingdom

The story of the bible is an epic fight for a Kingdom, a fight between Good and Evil. Since the beginning of the story, the KING has provided a way for each dispensation to make an eternal decision for which side they chose to join.

The most High God and Possessor of Heaven and Earth Gen 14:22, originally gave the kingdom to the high Cherub Lucifer Eze 28:14. After his fall Eze 28:16 and destruction of the earth 2Pe 3:5, the kingdom was given to Adam Gen 1:28 where he was told to “replenish” the earth. But Adam also fell from grace Gen 3:22 and Satan took the kingdom back 2Co 4:4.

Good and Evil already existed at the time of Adam and Eve Gen 2:9. The great accuser Rev 12:10 wanted his kingdom back and enticed Eve to eat of the fruit Gen 3:5. The term “good and evil” is used exactly 7 times in the bible. The fight between good and evil Eph 6:12 and the Kingdom will continue until the KING comes to take it by force Mat 24:30 giving it back to the saints Dan 7:22, but not until the message of the Kingdom is preached in all the world Mat 24:14.

The bible speaks of “in that day” 112 times, most referring to the 2nd coming of Christ. Do you realize that out of the 6 thousand years of human history, God placed you in the most exciting time of all? We know we are very close to His coming Luk 21:31 and we can see the day coming Heb 10:25, 1Th 5:4.

Israel recently turned 69 years old as a nation. Next May Israel will be the ripe age of 70, the years of a man Psa 90:10. The number of people from Jacob that entered into Egypt and later became slaves was 70 Exo 1:5. Israel was held captive by the Babylonians for 70 years Jer 25:11, Jer 29:10. The Jewish people had 70 weeks of desolation appointed unto them Dan 9:24. After Christ death on the cross, the temple was destroyed and the nation of Israel dispersed in 70 A.D. In this passage, Jesus is telling Peter an atonement for Israel’s sins and finish to the transgressions would not be in place until the 490 years of desolation pass; 70 times Mat 18:22…..

We have been in a calming period from a prophecy perspective since December of last year. It “seems” as if the world is normalizing – the calm just before the storm. Jesus said it would be just another day when He takes us home Mat 24:38, Mat 24:39.

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Rev 22:20
