Eclipse 2017: Darkness Fall Across The Land.

( No matter what you believe as the eclipse occurred, it could mean everything, nothing or anything in between. People traveled from all over the country and parts of the world in order to see this phenomenon or sign of August 2017. Stores and online companies began selling eclipse glasses. Classes were cancelled at universities. Church congregations gathered. Scientists seemed as fascinated as clergy. What is unique is that it was almost a hundred years since an almost total eclipse happened in the United States. But what is really interesting is that it was 1257 AD when an eclipse like this covered only North America. And the eclipse of August, 2017 also could only be seen by North America. North America is only Canada, the United States and Mexico, so we have to wonder what message is hidden in the eclipse that brought the darkness across our land.

Man, no matter what he believed as an astronomer, Christian, astrologist, meteorologist or world traveler etc., has always watched the skies, the stars, the moon and the sun for signs of weather, disasters and things to come. And there is good reason for man having done this, even though different mindsets often have always disagreed about what these signs mean. Almost every major civilization including the Mayans, the Indians, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans etc. has logged a history of those we worship coming from the sky. Every religion from Islam to Christianity to Catholicism to Buddhism to Hinduism to Mormonism has also acknowledged the same. So it is no mystery that no matter what man believes, he looks to the skies for answers.

And so they watched and gazed curiously into the Heavens

As darkness fell across the land

Exciting for some, scary for others

But most had no idea what it meant.

How many were ready?

One day they would know.

One day they would see clearly through the eclipse of darkness.

One day they would understand.

Scientists say an eclipse is simply a natural phenomena whereby the sun moves in front of the moon or the moon moves in front of the sun. And science can even chart and anticipate when another eclipse will occur. But science cannot unequivocally answer why planet and stars move as they do when they do. And more and more scientists are having to admit these things are a product of intelligent design, not mere chance. That being said, let’s take a look at what the sign of the eclipse may mean. If you believe, you do. If you don’t, you don’t. But sooner or later we will find out what was right.

Matthew 24:29 – The Olivet Prophecy (READ THE ENTIRE HUMBLING CHAPTER)

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 [r]the sky, and the powers of]the heavens will be shaken. 30 And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. 31 And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His [t]elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Rev 6:12-17 John as 6th seal is opened

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; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the ]commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Isaiah 13:9-11

9 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger, To make the land a desolation; And He will exterminate its sinners from it.
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.
11 Thus I will punish the world for its evil And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud
And abase the haughtiness of the]ruthless.

Ezekiel 32:7-8

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.
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 21:25-26

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, 26 men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the]world; for the powers of]the heavens will be shaken.

Exodus 10:21-22

Three days of darkness in Egypt before exodus of Israelites, 1 of 10 plagues

21 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even a darkness which may be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.

Joel 2:31

31 “The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.

I am neither telling you what to think nor what to believe. But I am not bold enough nor smart enough to out think and ignore Ezekiel, Isaiah, Moses, Joel, Luke, John and Matthew. Could any person be wrong? Of course. Could this many people all be wrong? I doubt it – and I believe because I am not willing to take that chance. Are you? So in parting I will say, may there be no eclipse in your life and no darkness in your understanding.

    John evolution, for example, has always been simply a THEORY based on two parts – microevolution and macroevolution. One has been disproven and the other is still just a theory. So much for your science and the list goes on.

    Intelligent Design

  2. M Anthony says:

    I know a few astrophysicists and they are not definitive. I suggest you John look closer at their so called evidence. I can also name a hundred scientists who are admitting intelligent design including many of the scientists at NASA. John do your homework.

    Science is still learning and evolving and finding that its world is not “flat”. Tesla disproved a lot of what Einstein believed regarding time travel etc. The list goes on John. Do your research, not just the parts you want to believe.

    “But science cannot unequivocally answer why planet and stars move as they do when they do.”

    Actually, they can. I suggest that you speak with an astrophysicist. Or just read a book on the subject.

    “And more and more scientists are having to admit these things are a product of intelligent design, not mere chance.”

    What makes you think so? Who are these “more and more scientists”? Are they coming to this conclusion in their own fields?
