FORGIVE ME if I have a little attitude this morning. So many now are talking about the "Blood Moons" and the total solar eclipses as signs of coming judgement. Well, better late than never! Over a decade ago I did a series on my public broadcast show on End-Time Ideas, which included a chapter called, "The Final Sign". It dealt with one of the most often repeated prophecies in Scripture; here is Peter's telling of it on the day of Pentecost: "And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the LORD come:"
This prophecy is all through the Bible, and it's good that people are talking about it now, but back in the day, everyone was like"Pre-Trib Rapture! Party Time!" Back when I was studying for my ordination in the Foursquare Church (which I didn't get), I learned the Church's creed is that there's not one more prophecy that needs to be fulfilled before the Rapture can happen. And that's what most Christians here believed. Just look how many prophecies have been fulfilled in the past 10 or so years!
Remember Joseph's dream about the Sun and Moon bowing down to him? Jacob asked, "Shall I and your mother and brothers indeed bow down to you?" Not exactly: Rachel died from complications after she delivered Benjamin. The deeper prophetic meaning of this dream will be fulfilled when Christ returns, and the sun & moon will surrender to the True Light (Revelation 22:5) Don't you all realize there's no way we can have a solar eclipse, and a lunar eclipse at the same time? Think about it.
And why are you all so surprised and shocked the the U.S. is turning against Israel? Does not the Scripture tell you Satan's "aliens" (unclean spirits like frogs) will gather ALL NATIONS against Israel? Do not the Prophets tell us the king would break his covenant? This ain't news, folks, and it sure ain't time to panic. Everything is going exactly the way the Bible always said it would. Not the way the "Bible Prophecy Experts" said, 'cuz according to them, the Rapture was scheduled for 1988.
Well, some of you didn't listen to me back then: you're smarter than me, and holier, more righteous, I get it. I was telling folks for years we would be here during the Tribulation. You ought to have listened to me. Maybe you'll listen now. What I'm telling you is, God hasn't retired & He didn't resign. He protected His chosen from the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Romans, the Catholic Church, the Communists & Nazis; shall He not keep us also in the days of the AntiChrist? Did not our Lord promise He would be with us even unto the end of this age?
God doesn't change, folks. It's time to stir up our faith in the God of Elijah, of Daniel, of Moses, of Joseph, of David, of Paul, and of John. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the hearts of man the things that God has prepared for those that love Him. Jesus will call His Two Witnesses, He will seal the 144,000, He will do great & mighty things you know not! BELIEVE!
