American Eclipse Part 2 - America's Doom?

An eclipse crossed America from sea to sea without touching another country on August 21st, 2017. There are many people proclaiming that this American Eclipse was a sign that God’s judgment will soon come. Is it the doom they are declaring, the end of our country, or something else? The answer to this single questions is complex.

God brought my attention to interesting parallels with the American eclipse:

  • In 1918 an eclipse went from coast to coast and also passed over the Bahamas then America emerged victorious from World War One.
  • The last time an eclipse crossed the entire country and didn’t cross another country was in 1776, the year America became a nation.
  • The American Eclipse was 67 miles wide. In 1967 the “Jesus people” or Jesus movement began.
  • The eclipse happened on August 21. Psalms 82:1 says, “GOD STANDS in the assembly [of the representatives] of God; in the midst of the magistrates or judges He gives judgment [as] among the gods.” (AMPC) The new level of  spiritual authority will come to the Body of Christ as knowledge spreads about the Courts of Heaven. This is the long hidden, missing key to our authority.

Signs in the Heavens - American Solar Eclipse: Part 1

The 2017 American Solar Eclipse is a solar eclipse which traverses the country from sea to sea and touches no other country. This phenomena has drawn the attention of the world to the things in the heavens. Over the last week, God has pointed out another supposed signs in the heavens as well. Let us take a close look at both this sign and the one that is supposed to come on September 23rd and what they may or may not mean.

Know the Times

Before we talk about what these things mean, let’s clear up some misapplied facts about knowing the time of things. Most people will quote two verse about the Lord’s return:
For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the [return of the] Lord will come [as unexpectedly and suddenly] as a thief in the night. (1 Thessalonians 5:2 AMPC)
Many use this verse to dismiss talk about the return of Jesus and the Tribulation. If you look only at this one verse, the Bible is plainly saying that it will come unexpectedly. Context is everything. We need to keep reading this passage to discover that this is speaking about those who are not walking with God. It is seen two verses later:
But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. (1 Thessalonians 5:4 ESV)
I encourage you to read the entire chapter in Thessalonians to get an accurate picture of what is being said. The unbelieving, or those who have fallen asleep will be surprised by the coming of the Lord, but the faithful will be ready. The second verse people quote about the hidden timing of His return is this:
