    "GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE" - Aug 21


    Could this be a warning?


    Eclipses in the Bible were often "prophetic" in nature. It seems

    amazing to me that scientists are calling this the 'Great American

    Eclipse' - a total eclipse the like of which has not occurred for

    100 years. Here is what the media is saying-


    "The last solar eclipse to cross the entire United States, from

    Washington to Florida, occurred in 1918, but it´ll happen again in

    less than a month.


    "On Aug. 21, the "Great American Eclipse" - when the moon

    passes between the sun and Earth... got its name because the

    United States is the only country that will experience it.


    "The entire country, including people in Alaska and Hawaii, will

    be able to see the eclipse... Lika Guhathakurta, an astrophysicist

    with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration´s

    helophysics science division... "That is a phenomenon that most

    Americans have never lived," she said... the view will be more like

    night and day when the moon blocks the sun."


    Do you think there may be anything 'prophetic' about this event,

    my friends? - Interested in your comments.


    God bless you all.

    My reply to Andrew:


    This is a sign from God to the people of the US.

    The earth is the world.

    The Sun is a type of Christ - Psalm 19

    For the director of music. A psalm of David.

    Psalm 19[a]

    For the director of music. A psalm of David.

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
    2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge.
    3 They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
    4 Yet their voice[b] goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world.
    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
    5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
    6 It rises at one end of the heavens
    and makes its circuit to the other;
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.


    The moon is a type of the church - the one side is focused on the world and is seen by the world, the other side is focused toward the sun or Christ. The world does not see that side of the moon (church).

    The ellipse of the sun reveals that the "Church" that is focused on the world blocks the light from the Sun ( Christ). The world is left in total darkness with no light during the "day".

    This is what the "church" of the US is doing in these days. The nation will not stand unless the church repents and turns to The Lord.

    Since the moon also has the real church attached to it, would it be some their fault as well?

      Very good question Tom. Of course anything not good is the fault of all of mankind. Anything good is the credit of God.

      I can not totally answer your question at this time. BUT I can say this; during this eclipse the one side is still focused on the world and at that same time the other side is totally focused on the Sun.

      The event may be little thought about by the organized church and the world, but that same event may cause the true body of Christ to focus even more on Him.

      There will also be others who focus on the natural event, instead of being warned to focus of Christ.

        Yeah I see that. Focused on the natural only, without any hint at what God could be saying. The church, for the most part, will not see their judgement coming. When God reaches out to show us.

          While not all of these passages are about the eclipse of the Sun, some are about the eclipse of the moon (when it turns blood red), and others may be about other signs in the heavens:

          Isaiah 13:10

          For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light.

          Job 9:7

          Who commands the sun not to shine, And sets a seal upon the stars;

          Job 3:9

          "Let the stars of its twilight be darkened; Let it wait for light but have none, And let it not see the breaking dawn;

          Joel 2:10

          Before them the earth quakes, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.

          Amos 8:9

          "It will come about in that day," declares the Lord GOD, "That I will make the sun go down at noon And make the earth dark in broad daylight.

          Ecclesiastes 12:2

          before the sun and the light, the moon and the stars are darkened, and clouds return after the rain;

          Ezekiel 32:7

          "And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud And the moon will not give its light.

          Joel 3:15

          The sun and moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.

          Matthew 24:29

          "But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

          Mark 13:24

          "But in those days, after that tribulation, THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT,

          Joel 2:31

          "The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

          Acts 2:20

          'THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.

          Revelation 6:12

          I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood;

          Luke 23:45

          because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two.

          Ezekiel 32:8

          "All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you And will set darkness on your land," Declares the Lord GOD.

          Luke 21:25

          "There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves,

          If The Lord mentions this so many times, it must be very important. This eclipse is covering the whole US and the path is right through the middle of it. I would say this is surely a warning to this nation, but especially a warning to the church of this nation.

            What about the passage of scripture that mentions the elders will be killed 1st? Not with the eclipse scriptures, but certainly a warning to the church system.

              You mean this one ?

              Ezekiel 9 English Standard Version (ESV)

              Idolaters Killed

              9 Then he cried in my ears with a loud voice, saying, “Bring near the executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand.”2 And behold, six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his weapon for slaughter in his hand, and with them was a man clothed in linen, with a writing case at his waist. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

              3 Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub on which it rested to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed in linen, who had the writing case at his waist. 4 And the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.5 And to the others he said in my hearing, “Pass through the city after him, and strike. Your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity. 6 Kill old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but touch no one on whom is the mark. And begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the house. 7 Then he said to them, “Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out.” So they went out and struck in the city. 8 And while they were striking, and I was left alone, I fell upon my face, and cried, “Ah, Lord God! Will you destroy all the remnant of Israel in the outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?”

              9 Then he said to me, “The guilt of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great. The land is full of blood, and the city full of injustice. For they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see.’ 10 As for me, my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity; I will bring their deeds upon their heads.”

              11 And behold, the man clothed in linen, with the writing case at his waist, brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded me.”

                Lou, your interpretations of the sun as Christ and the moon as the Church
                are identifying them as biblical types with prophetic implications.

                Considering the scripture passages you posted to support the sun as Christ and the moon as the Church, there is the assumption on my part that you also interpret stars as biblical types with specific stars being a biblical type similar to astrology?

                If my assumption is correct, what are you prophesying about 23rd September 2017?

                  Hi Glen,

                  You write:
                  there is the assumption on my part that you also interpret stars as biblical types with specific stars being a biblical type similar to astrology?
                  No I do not interpret the heavenly bodies to anything even similar to astrology. Astrology teaches that the stars can affect our lives, or have power over our lives. I disagree with that very strenuously. Psalm 19 states that the heavens declare the glory of God, NOT that the heavens have any effect on the movements of God. God has simply written in the heavenly bodies what He is going to do, they are nothing but messages in the heavens, they have no power over our lives.

                  But I do agree that God has written many messages with His creation.

                  Psalm 19 English Standard Version (ESV)

                  The Law of the Lord Is Perfect

                  To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.


                  19 The heavens declare the glory of God,
                  and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
                  2 Day to day pours out speech,
                  and night to night reveals knowledge.
                  3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
                  whose voice is not heard.
                  4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
                  and their words to the end of the world.
                  In them he has set a tent for the sun,
                  5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
                  and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
                  6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
                  and its circuit to the end of them,
                  and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

                  I am not prophesying anything. Only declaring that God is doing so with the eclipse of the Sun that is going to take place in our nation next month.

                  I am not even aware of any event on sept 23, 2017.

                      Hi Fisherman, really good to hear from you.

                      I have already posted scriptures that support that eclipses are from God. He alone controls them and the objects in the heavens obey Him. If they obey their Creator then they are doing what God is having them do.

                      Is this eclipse for the US ? - Well the US is the only nation it appears over, AND it appears over the whole nation. Even men know to post signs where and when the men who need to read them can see them.

                      I will try to post some more scriptures for you. If you find any please post them.

                      I hope you are doing well.

                        Hi Fisherman, did you read this thread ? It should answer some of your questions about the eclipse.

                            As with all signs and prophecies, we will (hopefully) see more clearly in retrospect.

                            1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 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. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
