Looking Forward To The Great Appearing

Large traffic jams and fully occupied hotels are already reported across the country in preparation for tomorrow's eclipse.  People are spending a lot of time, money and effort to be in areas where they can witness the sign in the heavens.


It is interesting how people will come out in droves to witness an eclipse, but God tells us very few will be alert and ready for the sighting of the Son of Man as He comes to meet His Bride in the air.  Most will miss it completely and be primed for the great deception.

The irony of this is stunning.






A few will be watching, yet most will be surprised as He comes as a thief in the night.

Luke 21:34 tells us this should not be:

Watch out! Don't let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don't let that day catch you unaware,





The Time of Jacob's Trouble that is soon coming will be primarily focused on the final invitation of the Hebrew people.  God promised Israel one more opportunity.  This opportunity is extended to all, as the Bride and the Groom say come.  Those left behind or perhaps limited to Israel will see Him and grieve.


This will be a time of great mourning, of great revelation, testing, shaking, judgment and urgent final appeal.

The Time of Jacob's Trouble

Daniel's 70th week

The Apocalypse

The Tribulation

The Great Tribulation


The time of the removal of the restrainer (The Holy Spirit)

The time of the covenant with many

The time when more than one third will die

The time when two-thirds of the Jewish remnant will die

The time of the opening and release of the seal judgments

The time of the opening and release of the trumpet judgments

The time of the opening and release of the vial judgements

The time of the arrival of the fallen angels - the demons

The time of the great deception

The time of the rise of the Anti-Christ

The time of the rise of the False Prophet and one world religion

The time of the rise of the Beast

The time of famine

The time of war

The time of persecution

The time when Israel flees to a place prepared

The time of the Mark of the Beast

The time of the Third Temple

The extreme lateness of the hour and the gravity of the situation have brought much sobriety and some fatalism.

Many are looking for their local church, pastor, preaching minister, elders, deacons, Bible class, small group, community group or TV/Radio personality to get it and share the news.  This is our job.  He is coming as a thief.  I pray for it, but I don't believe there will be worldwide recognition, a sign that humbles the masses or a 2 Chronicles 7:14 final time of mass repentance.

Many are discouraged by the scoffers and the lack of response, yet Noah had his scoffers.  When the rains and floods came they knew the truth.  In Noah's day there was no second chance.  In the tribulation period there will be opportunity, although for many the opportunity will be brief. 

In our day, let's share the news of His return and the most excellent good news of the gospel so that when the time of trouble comes, people will know truth and will not be tossed around by deception.

I'm glad the word is getting out.  While I am saddened and burdened by the scoffers and hard hearts, I can rest because the truth was shared.  It's our job to share truth.  It's God's job to draw men.  If God doesn't do a work in someone's heart to call them, no amount of blog posting, video creating, preaching or witnessing is going to help. 

There will be a time when the light bulb goes on for some and the martyrdom of the tribulation saints begins.  Let's give them the tools to recognize what is happening so that they can make the right choice.

For many the seeds have been planted and watered, but fruit has not been forthcoming.  For the majority who are underneath totality of deception, deceit and darkness, their Christ-acknowledging friends, who know this day is coming, have held back, have not shared and these are then not prepared for what is coming. 

For many of us it is high time for delivery of a final and urgent truth-telling and plea.  The time is now and it has always been our job to declare His truth and turn these children of His over to Him.  That is still the task.  Now we share and we turn these friends and loved ones who will not listen over to the tribulation that is coming.  We pray that these will repent.  Unfortunately, the sad, burdensome, stomach-souring reality is, many will not.


Revelation 9:20-21 (NASB)

The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.


Revelation 16:10-11 (NASB)

Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of pain, and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.


Mark 4:18-19 (NLT)

The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.

Let us be urgent and diligent in our duties:

Hebrews 3:13 (NLT)

You must warn each other every day, while it is still "today," so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.

  1. Outstanding! There is a time and place for everything under the sun, and here we are......these events will be under duress, but will also give believers one of the greatest opportunities ever in history to share the gospel!

    2. Spot on, Anonymous. This is Red Ranger - Loren O. I'm not a hater, nor a nay-sayer. I believe scripture is crystal clear that we are to be watching and that the feasts are very very significant for all believers - Jews and Gentiles, and that one big reason for so much confusion is the ignorance of most pastors who have little/ no understanding of Jewish feasts. With that said, I think we need to use caution. While a lot of things add up and line up, - way too many to be random coincidence, it doesn't mean it will be this year. When you look at all the signs together, eclipse, blood moons, feast of Trumpets, then the fact that the sept alignment [very rare and interesting] falls on Saturday, the high Sabbath Shabbat Shuva, and that this means return, and the jubilee year, and the 50 year anniversary of Jerusalem being reclaimed, six day war, and 40 days from eclipse to Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement, -it's phenomenal. We have to keep in mind that we all, - watchmen included, see through a glass dimly. We have parts of a puzzle, but not all. One of the biggest things that has damaged the church are the countless times when people were sure that the end was here, and it's the equivalent of Crying Wolf. Eventually it was the real thing - the problem being that he gave so many 'false warnings' that people stopped paying attention. I think this is a big part we need to keep in mind. Perry Stone and Rabbi Cohen, gave a lot of strong reasons that it was last year and sold a ton of books. Lack of humility. Shalom and maranatha. ;-)

  8. Yes, Daniel's teaching at informed..., earlier today I believe, is the Lord's turning the last page to show the eclipse to be the "other sign appearing" just as clearly as the 9/23 sign, itself, directly from the text and context and using those very same, heretofore unidentified, facts. The connections the Spirits NOW has tied together make it very CLEAR, just like the woman sign has been all along. Maranatha !

    1. Yes I have chickenskin also, Amazing and humbling at the same time. To meet our Maker face to Face! Total different dimensions. It is so difficult wrapping my mind about what is to come. When I stop typing, look outside my window into the garden everything seems so peaceful, normal, but I know prophecies fortold centuries ago WILL not forever be future one day it will be happening and one day it will have happened. Amazing!

  10. I've been reading articles on this site for the last few days, as I only recently have heard about the total solar eclipse. I'm very compelled by majority of the articles, but I remain skeptical, as prophecies have been reworked and reannounced, such as 1914, Y2K, the Nibiru or Planet X prophecies (2003 to now), 2012, and the May 2017 prophecy.

    Now, I will note that while I come from a strong Jehovah's Witness background and family, I am no longer a Christian, so I don't hold the faith that others do. I have retained my knowledge of the Bible and its prophecies, though.

    Putting all of that aside, if the eclipse that is to happen later today is the first sign, a breaking of a seal, so to speak, then what would the eclipse of 2024 signify?

    I wish greatly to see if there may be more to this.

    Thank you,

    Anon

    2. I also come from a Jehovah's Witness background... please accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and trust what you are reading is true...it is the hardest thing to have believed something only to find it is a lie, but right now you have to step out in faith. Jesus has said He would be coming one day... why not when all the signs and indications are staked up at His coming next month before or during the Rev 12 sign. Watch He said.. no matter what happens I will always be watching...we need to take out minds and hearts of things of this earth...yes we must be law abiding citizens, but we are citizens of Heaven and the mere thought of being left behind should terrify anyone. Matthew 25:1-13... Let's keep our lamps full and be wise. Blessings.

    3. Thank you, Greg. I had thought so. My spouse and I have been having major discussions about past occurrences that could be more warning signals of the rapture and the great tribulation and Armageddon - like the trumpets spunting.

      And fellow anon, as much as I appreciate the sentiment, asking someone to convert isn't very respectful. I believe that while Christianity may have a lot right, I feel that some things are missing. I still have an odd foothold in my Bible teachings, and I keep coming back for more.

      I wouldn't be here unless I had my suspicions that something is coming, and I'm thankful for the opportunity to read and interact on this topic.

      Delete
    4. All these other times in the past are absolutely nothing compared to now. Its all here now. It almost doesn't even take faith to believe His coming is now with the OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE NOW. Anon you need to go to Heavenly sign 2017.com and read all the home page and all the site if you can. Run back to Jesus Christ now and miss eternity in HELL

    5. Joel Smith, I agree that a of things line up and add up, and that the combination of solar and Biblical signs all together make this fall very different. But, we all see through a glass dimly. We know in part and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part will be done away. I remain as you, my brother, a watchman, waiting expectantly, hoping for the rapture this Yom Teruah, when the Last Trumpet sounds with the Shofar in Jerusalem, but we have to keep the perspective that we only hold pieces of a puzzle. It seems to make a clear picture, but some of the pieces are missing. Love and grace. If it's not this year, I have been watching, and searching my heart, repenting, - I've lost nothing. Maranatha.

    1. Please tell me what you see, for me it doen't work: the site is redirected to google.nl (nl is Netherlands) and on that homepage is nothing to see.
      You make me curious what is so WOW?

      I love American humor and way of thinking out loud together, and being the supportive friend of Israel. I have been in Israel twice and have yet to visit America, seems such a beautiful country Love the nature there. I also feel more connected to American Christians because of their passion for Christ, which can hardly be found in Dutch churches. I learn so much. Okay back to topic what did you see? Don't leave me in the dark ;-)

    2. For Sofia because she asked...

      There are two "aliens" in their flying saucers just outside the earth's atmosphere playing (head) ping pong with the moon as it eclipses the sun.

      The alien (A LIE n) deception is very well on its way, supported by the likes of Google and others.

    3. Thank you Ano, lol what a strange "explanation" of our harpazo to the Lord for those who are somehow believe this stuff. But it is sad too. Good find 'a lie 'n' deception, did not see that word this way, see I learn from you. Thanks. Even the enemies ly lie in wait...for us to be gone.

    6. Hoi Wout. Grappig om Nederlands te praten hier mag dat eigenlijk wel? Dank voor je tip, maar ik geloof Ano wel zie het zo voor me haha. Ping pong. Zo fijn om met Amerikaanse vrienden over Jezus' komst te kunnen hebben. Ik mis dat hier in Nederland. Hoe kun je als Christen niet Jezus zo liefhebben dat je dolgraag wilt dat Hij komt? Ik leer ook van Amir Tsarfati van Haifa. We worden in Nederland zo dom en onwetend gehouden en velen zijn niet geinteresseerd. Helaas. Jij dus gelukkig wel Wout.

  12. On 21 Aug this eclipse together with the one appearing 7 years later marks the spot called 'Little star of Egypt' Makanda.
    On 21 Oct, 30 days later,this Makanda has a Vulture festival celebration. Vultures.. Look up in the Bible about them.
    On 21 Sep, 30 days after the eclipse is Rosh Hashanah, trumpetfeast also called the feast no one knows day or hour. Same day VN has named International Day of Peace (and security? And then sudden destruction)?
    So much happens right now. Fall of Damascus, imminent, Gog Magog war not far away either. Is something going on with the oceanplate diving under tectonic earthplate near the coast of Brasil and Uruguay recently? May be precursor/trigger to tsunami, earthquake, vulcano eruption? The Restrainer still restrains but for how much longer? Maranatha and love from Sofia who has a stiff neck from looking up from North Netherlands to our coming Redeemer and Eternal King of Peace in the beautiful sky above. Keep faith He is coming!

  13. Just heard Glenn Beck make fun of the sign. He met an agent who was trying to explain it to him at a checkpoint. Hilarious to think of a Mormon, who believes in all sorts of insanity (Constitution divinely inspired, magic underwear, et. al.) discounting the sign.

    To be fair, he hasn't researched it, and it is on the peripheral. Not sure I'm all in, myself, but I do believe the eclipse and the 9/23 sign signify something (if not the rapture/start of the Trib.)... But he dismissed the agent, out-of-hand, as a lunatic.

    Couldn't help but cringe as he took on things he didn't understand. Glad, at the very least that awareness is reaching the mainstream. At the very least, it will cause more people to examine the significance of all signs in the heavens.

  15. The eclipse has come and gone. I may have been too eager. I don't know what i expected to happen today. However, my hope hasn't been defeated. Our Lord is coming soon. My trust in Him is just as strong now as it was prior to the eclipse. My Lord, my hope is still and forever will be in You.

    1. Me too dear Krista. Keep that oil burning sister. Just because signs came and went without anything happening, many could fall away from watching and from faith. Scoffers are going to have a field day but we keep on trusting in Him. And we are another day closer than ever before.

    2. The eclipse is a single signpost of the beginning.... of the countdown. Elul begins at sundown which is a 40 day period of retrospect and time to get our spiritual house in order before the Day of Atonement (9/30). Of course the FoT happens 9/21-9/23. As a prior post wrote, one does wonder when the next event or events will happen.. We know the eclipse is a signal of SOMETHINGS to come.

      Shalom and see everyone soon at the wedding.

      Delete
    3. Dear Krista, I want to encourage you. Most watchmen, prophecy teachers have been saying that the eclipse was the warning, much like a clear pattern of history. Of course there are many opinions, but most on this site, and some of the most well-known teachers, Scott Clarke, and Paul Begley, and Rabbi Jonathan Cohn and Rabi Mark Biltz, etc, say that the rapture is linked with Rosh Hoshanah, Feast of Trumpets [The Last Trumpet' and 'no one knows the day or the hour'] are both clear and unmistakable references to Feast of Trumpets. Most also say it could be on Day of Atonement, - both which are Hebrew Feasts. The next one in order chronologically, which has yet to be fulfilled is Feast of Trumpets. How else could Christ fulfill it ? Blast a trumpet 100 times?? He gave the phrase to be watching and awake, and every single Jewish person who heard his words knew instantly that 'No one knows the day or hour' was clearly Rosh Hoshanah - more accurately Rom Teruah. It is the only Feast that is on the new moon/ crescent and moon and lasts two days, because it can be cloudy or raining, and hard to see. There has to be two witnesses in Jerusalem and the Sanhedrin confirms it and the priests blast the trumpet 99 times, with series of short and long blasts. The 100th one is the "Last Trumpet" which is the loudest and longest and goes as long as the trumpeter has breath. ;-) Maranatha.

      Delete
  16. Now that the eclipse has passed, one wonders ‘how many days until the earthquake?’ Did anyone else take photos and catch a light bright blue crescent object maybe half an arm’s length from the sun? I did, at 3pm EST. It cannot be any trick because I was in the same position at different times, and this crescent object also changed position.

    Speaking of the Jews mourning for the one that they pierced, if you know a Jew and would like to show him the truth, or would like to learn more of the evidence from Jews themselves that Jesus is the Messiah, allow me to list some names:

    Michael Brown and Alfred Edersheim (of course)

    Ram’s Head Press (pdf online) Here one can learn of the ‘Prayer of Detection’ invented in first century synagogues to purge and drive the first ‘wedge’ between the first Jewish Christians and the non-Christian Jews. Centuries before the Masorite tampering, there also was Akiva and Aquila. They did a real doozy to keep the Messiah away from the people.

    Risto Santalla (Finnish scholar)

    Eitan Bar and Moti (One for Israel)

    Zev Porat

    Abraham Yehoshua (Seed of Abraham)

    Baruch Korman

    Jan Moskowitz
    Rabbi Shapira

    Erez Soref

    Asher Intrater

  17. The Holy Spirit gave me two words for 2017, "VOICE and WATCHMAN.". I have always been a quiet, shy person; He has given me a VOICE for Him. He has told me to be WATCHFUL and to follow the signs of the times. The signs line up one on top of another as shown on this site. Listen and open your eyes and let this sink into your heart. It is crucial. Look up the two words I was given in your Bible. It is amazing what you will find. Blessings

  18. Greg dear brother, TY for this veritable reminder that "the Spirit and the bride say Come" (Rev22:17)! From this verse anyone can easily see that the BRIDE is the CHURCH and no one else (as there are many misleading teachings about this these days out there saying the bride is Israel and such stuff)! The BRIDE = CHURCH and the Spirit still offer the SAVIOURs GRACE until the very last minute whereas during tribulation no more grace but JUDGEMENT of the CREATOR and salvation by WORKS/LAW will be core of the gospel then like in OT times again (Rev14:6-11). MARANATHA Come LORD Jesus!

  19. Blood Moons warning the Jews and Solar Eclipse warning the gentiles, especially America (see Greg's article here "America:The Writing is on the Wall"). America has doubled down in evil and wickedness. The religion of man has sown the wind around the world and will (justly) soon reap the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7). The first time a forest fire burns a stump it burns brightly, the subsequent times not so much. Finally the stump will not burn at all. The old saints used to call that the moment when the lights go out on the road to hell. May you all continue to burn bright (in the face of false narrative about God) and shine a light for those stumps out there who still can burn.
