Blood Moons and the Solar Eclipse of 2017

“Even on my servants, both men and women. I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2: 18-21 NIV)

We have been warned of a time that depicts the end of the current age and the coming of the Messiah.  We were warned about what to watch for and even told that we would be blessed if we watched.  Did we?  Are we prepared for what is coming?  That is the only question to ask!

We are instructed to look up as our redemption draws close.  Look up to what?  What are we suppose to see?  If it was only that simple……

What if it was that simple?  No crazy interpretation needed. Just to look up and watch for the signs.  We are told that the sun would turn dark and the moon would turn red.  What does that mean?

Many believe that the Blood Moons that happened in 2014 and 2015 are the signs depicted according to Biblical prophecy.  The reason is that every one of these Blood Moons landed on a Jewish Holiday.  Not only did they fall on Jewish holidays but they fell on the holidays that have not had their prophecies fulfilled.  Let me explain. Every Jewish Holiday is a “dress rehearsal” for a prophecy promised from God to the Jewish people.  They are organized according to spring feasts and fall feasts.  Most Biblical Scholars believe that the spring feasts have been completed while the fall have yet to pass.  The significance of the Blood Moons is that they fell on the fall feasts that have yet to pass!

That may explain the moon turning to blood but it does not explain the sun turning dark. Plus the sun turns dark and has eclipses all the time. How can this event be significant?

When an eclipse occurs, only a portion of the Globe is able to see the total eclipse.  Most of the time it is over the ocean, so not much land is covered.  On August 21st 2017, there will be an eclipse that occurs over the United States and every square inch of America will see the eclipse.  This is a very rare event as this is the first time that an eclipse hits only the USA, and no other country, since 1776. To make things even more outlandish, the same thing happens 7 years later!  Yes in 2024, there is another solar eclipse that covers no other country but the United States of America!

After looking closer to the path of the eclipses, we are provided with even further insight into what may be planned.  The solar eclipse that occurs in 2017 moves from Oregon to South Carolina making a diagonal line.  The solar eclipse that occurs in 2024 moves with an opposite diagonal swath, creating a Large X over the USA!

Considering Scripture tells us about a period of 7 years that will be marked as like no other time before or after, we need to be aware of this coming 7 year period.  We are told that this time will be hard and many will lose their way.  We are told to make sure that no one deceives us.  We were told but have we listened? Have we trained and prepared for what is coming?

Hopefully this is completed wrong and there is nothing about this time that we need to worry about.  There must be other signs in the heaven and if this is the Great Tribulation, then there must be others signs present.

Yet, there is another sign that seems to fit.  Just one minor sign that no one has been able to figure out, until now.  It depicts the fulfillment of Revelation 12 1-2.

“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.”

On September 23, 2017, this sign appears in the constellation of Virgo. Virgo (The Virgin) has had Jupiter (King Planet) within her “womb” for over 9 months and Jupiter now exits out of her womb on this date.  Also the moon is near her feet, the sun is over her left shoulder, while the constellation Leo (9 stars) is above her head joined with Mercury, Mars and Venus (9 + 3 = 12)

If we look at these signs literally, and place them within Scripture, they fit.  No fancy interpretation needed.  It’s that simple!

After the realization of what this “could” mean, we need to see if there are any other signs around us.  We need to prepare mentally and spiritually for what may be headed our way.  We must be diligent in all that we do so that we may be prepared for when the Great Day of the Lord comes!

Remain Strong and May God Guide You on Your Journey!

We Cannot Serve Two Masters!

We cannot serve two masters. The belief of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture can be considered an idol as it provides salvation that is not present within the Holy Scripture. This belief allows men to continue their actions believing that Grace will allow them to escape the trials to come. This is not a humble look at salvation but an entitled view. According to Matthew 24 the first instructions Jesus gave was to not be deceived. The Pre-Tribulation view allows deception to creep into the heart of mankind and limits their growth. If they believe that they will be taken prior to any trials, then there is no reason to learn what the trials are. If we understand that the trials are to make the harvest ripe, then we will do all we can to become ripe in God’s eyes. We are instructed that we can tell the Good by the Fruit they produce. What kind of Fruit does the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory produce? Complacent, arrogant, self-entitled believers that don’t understand that their work has only begun and has not been completed! If we understand our work has only begun, then we will strive to learn and grow as much prior to the end of the age. Otherwise the Church will not be ready to do God’s work during the most important time in history!

Donald Trump and the Opening of the Seven Seals of Revelation

Many voices are uttering that the disturbance within the current world is abnormal.  Something is off and nothing is making sense.  We have expansion of information to the point that understanding truth is becoming harder every day.  We are witnessing the world spiral into war as the global economy is barely expanding.  Anticipating the contraction of world trade, we see the world economy will soon be in a severe depression.

We can see if we want to see…….

Most Christians look to the opening of the Seals found within Revelation, as the sign of our destruction.  Many understand that these Seals to be the beginning of the Apocalypse and the Church’s redemption.  People throughout history have looked for the fulfillment of this prophecy and have named many historical figures as the one prophesized about. This has been consistent throughout the entirety of history as every world leader has been considered to fulfill the apocalyptic leader of the Anti-Christ.  During 2017, the new dominate world leader would be President Donald Trump.  As people said about Obama before him, now Donald Trump will be seen as a possible candidate for the Anti-Christ.  Considering we are less than two weeks into his Presidency, are there any indications that President Trump could fulfill this prophecy?

To consider if Donald Trump is the Anti-Christ we will have to look at the Seven Seals and see if anything has been “Opened”.  The Seven Seals of Revelation can be found in within Chapter 6 of the book of Revelation.  The first Seal is stated like this:

“I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.” Revelation 6: 1-2

The opening of the 1st Seal talks about the rise of the Anti-Christ and how he is given a kingdom (crown) and a bow (weapon).  Considering every world leader is given a kingdom and weapons, this would describe every world leader throughout history.  Considering President Trump, this leader would be the same as considering Benjamin Netanyahu or any other Head of State.

The 2nd Seal of Revelation is as follows:

“And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4 And there went out another horse [that was] red: and [power] was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the Earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” Revelation 6: 3-4

Within this Seal we see that peace will be taken from the Earth and man will kill one another.  Considering the imagery, we can see that this is depicting a massive war and possibly a civil war on a global scale.  A big sword was given to him and many people died.

Reviewing President Trump’s actions of the last two weeks, we have witnessed the massive global riots, a ban on refugees coming into the US from Muslim countries, and verbal battles with Mexico and China.  This is just a portion of all the activity that has happened since his inauguration.  Could this be the opening of the 2nd Seal of Revelations?  We will know our answer if these civic disturbances turn into full civil war.

The 3rd Seal of Revelation is as follows:

“And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a denarius, and three measures of barley for a denarius; and [see] thou hurt not the oil and the wine.” Revelation 6: 5-6

The 3rd Seal talks about a Global Economic Crisis, most likely associated to hyperinflation, within the Commodity sector.  In other words, it will take an entire day’s wages to purchase a loaf of bread.  The value of human labor will be discounted and food will become a very valuable asset.  With a large portion of Economists proclaiming that we are headed toward an economic crisis, could this crisis be the one talked about in Revelation?  If massive civil war breaks out, be prepared to witness global hyperinflation.

The 4th Seal of Revelation is as follows:

“And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.8 and I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the Earth.” Revelation 6: 7-8

The 4th Seal will be the last seal that we review today.  Considering the chaos that is caused by the previous three seals, we can assume we would know we were in the mist of the Tribulation prior to the opening of the 4th Seal.

The 4th Seal of Revelation depicts two beings that great power is given to.  With this power a large portion of the world’s population will be killed.  The depiction of a sword shows the power of these beings and the use of a powerful weapon.  Hunger and beasts of the Earth are used against mankind, meaning famine and animals will be weaponized.  Those present during this time will have a strong understanding of what has happened to the world.

In retrospect, it is too early to determine if President Trump is the being prophesized about or if he is just another world leader.  As his Presidency develops, if the massive unrest increases and becomes violent, then he may fulfill the opening of the 2nd Seal.

We all must hope and pray that we are counted amongst God’s Chosen that we may escape the trials that will be coming upon the Earth.  Either this generation or a future generation will have to witness this prophecy being fulfilled.  Until that time comes, we must watch for the Signs and become diligent in the Lord.

May God guide you on your journey!

Gog and Magog War

Are we witnessing Bible prophecy being fulfilled in our lifetime?  Are these events just random or are they predetermined to happen precisely as God depicted?  If prophetic events are predetermined to be fulfilled, then through the Holy Scripture, we should be able to foresee events prior to their inception?  Is the interaction between Russia and Ukraine the tipping point in a prophetic storm?

The war in Ukraine is not a normal war.  It may be the beginning of WW3.  Russia is set to invade, the US is doing joint exercises in Poland, Saudi Arabia is purchasing weapons, Russia is dealing to Syria, and don’t forget about Iran and North Korea.  Now that Russian supporters in Ukraine are distributing anti-Semitic pamphlets, is the world is about ready to witness another holocaust?  Tensions are rising not only on the Russian/European front but here in the US.  FEMA has gathered enough ammo and coffins to start and end a major war on the home front.  Besides the fall of America, are we are witnessing the beginnings of the prophesized war in Ezekiel 38-3?

“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.  I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out from your whole army – your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.  Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops – the many nations with you.” (Ezekiel 38: 3-6)

Russia is set to devour Europe but God has other plans.  They will be pulled into the conflict in the Middle East.  The most likely catalyst will be the conflict in Syria.  God will use Russia/Syria to destroy most of the Middle East (Isaiah 10: 12), finally coming against Israel.  When Russia invades Israel, there will be the earthquake spoken of in Revelation (Revelation 16:18).  Every mountain shall be moved.  The Russian troops will be destroyed and men will be employed to bury them.

“This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord.  In my Zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at the time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.  The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beast of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence.  The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.” (Ezekiel 38: 18-20)

This action will be for God to demonstrate to the world that he is the one true God and the God of Israel.  There is no doubt about who he is, when this event happens.  “I will make known my holy name among my people Israel.  I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord and the holy one in Israel.  It is coming!  It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord.  This is the day I have spoken of.” (Ezekiel 39: 7-8)

“On that day, I will give Gog a burial place in Israel, in the valley of those who travel east toward the Sea.  It will block the way of travelers, because Gog and all his hordes will be buried there.  So it will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog.” (Ezekiel 39: 11)1
