Was the Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse a warning for America to repent of its sin?
One, my heart and prayers go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. I have no desire to add to their suffering. Prophecy Plus Ministries has sent a contribution. We encourage others to do the same.
Two, I am not qualified to say whether the total solar eclipse was a warning or not, but if God was warning America to repent, it is a mistake to be one of those that are ridiculing the idea.
The people of Texas and Louisiana have suffered the most, but the entire U.S. is going to pay a price and the cost will keep increasing, if there is no repentance.
Three, because darkness was one of the Ten Plague warnings to Egypt's Pharaoh to let God's people go (Ex. 10:21-23) some Jewish rabbis believe darkness caused by an eclipse is a warning from God.
Four, the total solar eclipse was seen only in America so some Jewish rabbis believe it was a warning to America.
Five, if the total solar eclipse was a warning to America, repentance is needed all over America not just in Texas and Louisiana. To deny that America needs repentance is seriously wrong. Repentance would be good for America not bad.
Six, God told Noah to warn people that He was going to send a Flood to destroy the earth (Gen. 6:1-7:12).
Seven, God told Jonah to warn the people of Nineveh to repent or He would overthrow them in 40 days (Jonah 3:1-10). NASA and Cuneiform tablets confirm that here was an eclipse in Nineveh shortly before Jonah arrived.
Eight, God sent two angels to warn Lot that He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19).
Nine, when God sends a disaster to warn people to repent (II Chron. 7:13), if His people will humble themselves, and pray, and seek His face, and repent, He will forgive their sins and heal their land (II Chron. 7:14; Jonah 3:10).
Ten, since the sun is almost 400 times as big as the moon, the sun would have to be about 400 times farther away from the earth than the moon is for them to appear to be about the same size. That is the way it is and it is not likely to be an accident.
Eleven, Anne Graham Lotz (Billy Graham's daughter), Mark Biltz, Steve Cioccolanti and others were preaching that the total solar eclipse could be a warning from God.
Twelve, the total solar eclipse was unusual in many ways:
a) Jerusalem, the Holy City that is associated with the Tribulation period, probably got its name from the King of Salem called Melchizedek (Gen. 14:18);
b) The sun set in Jerusalem at the exact moment the eclipse started in the U.S.;
c) The first U.S. city to experience the eclipse was Salem, Ore.;
d) The eclipse occurred over seven cities (a significant Bible number) in the U.S. named Salem;
e) It has been almost one generation since Israel became a nation in 1948;
f) It has been about six God-Days (6 X 1,000 years = 6,000 years since God created Adam;
g) The Aug. 21, 2017 total solar eclipse will be followed by a second total solar eclipse in 2024 (about 7 years apart) and they will make an "X" over the U.S. with the center of the "X" being an area in Illinois that is often called "Little Egypt" (Darkness was one of the Ten-Plague warnings in Egypt and the only place in the U.S. that will be crossed by both eclipses is called "Little Egypt."
Thirteen, God controls the weather and He uses it to fulfill His Word (Job 38:24-28; Psa. 135:6-7, 148:7-8; Luke 21:25).
Fourteen, on Aug. 21, 2017 Harvey was a tropical storm. Three days later, it became a Category 1 Hurricane (at 1 pm on Aug. 24). Less than 30 hours later it had grown to a Category 4 Hurricane (at 6 pm on Aug. 25). It made landfall 4 hours later (at 10 pm on Aug. 25).
Fifteen, when Harvey made landfall it got trapped by two high pressure systems. As powerful as it was, it was boxed in and it couldn't break loose. It just kept spinning and dumping rain. Who besides God can trap a Category 4 hurricane?
There are many reasons why America needs to repent: pushing the two-state solution to divide Israel and Jerusalem, abortion; the U.S. Supreme Court redefinition of marriage, LGBT issues, the globalist effort to create a world government, violence and bloodshed all over America, silent pastors and church members, corruption in the swamp and media, and more.
Did you notice that the first item on the list is pushing the two-state solution to divide Israel and Jerusalem? Look at event number Fourteen above. Notice that Harvey went from being a tropical storm on Aug. 21, 2017 to being a Hurricane on Aug. 24, 2017.
Now notice what was going on with the peace negotiations in the Middle East: President Trump's Advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his "negotiating team" went to Saudi Arabia and Qatar on Aug. 21, 2017, Jordan on Aug. 22, 2017, Egypt on Aug. 23, 2017 and they arrived in Israel on Aug. 23, 2017 for a next-day meeting with Prime. Min. Netanyahu on Aug. 24, 2017.
God said He will drag the nations into the battle of Armageddon for scattering the Jews and dividing the land of Israel (Joel 3:2). The total solar eclipse over the U.S. occurred on the same day Jared Kushner and his team went to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the U.S. on the same day Jared Kushner and his team met with Prime. Min Netanyahu in Jerusalem (or ancient Salem).
The total solar eclipse passed over "Little Egypt" in the U.S. one day before Jared Kushner and his team were in Egypt to discuss Pres. Trump's "ultimate deal."
Is there a connection between the eclipse, Jerusalem and Hurricane Harvey?
It has been said, "There are no coincidences with God." These things are either a warning from God or coincidences. Each person should decide for their own self.
Many are reluctant to say these things are a warning from God to repent, but if they are people need to stop ridiculing it, they best get on their knees soon and the U.S. needs to end the so-called peace process immediately.
If God's patience with America is waxing thin, there are no words to describe what America may experience in the next few weeks or months (Israel attacked - Gog and Magog, economic collapse, increased violence, birth pang type natural disasters, persecution, only God knows what else.
