A complex convergence of constellations and planets is seen as a the “Great Sign” of Revelation 12, but it’s misunderstood by some as the end of days.
Media Mock Meade’s Misunderstanding of a Sign in Sky September 23 as ‘End of Days and Rapture,’ says Dr. Richard Ruhling, author of God Bless America? He explains the ‘Great Sign of Revelation 12’ is not apocalyptic for September 23, but its nine months ‘pregnancy’ points to next spring…
According to astronomers, a complex convergence of aligning planets and constellations will unfold over 9 months, and it fits the Bible’s description: September 23, 2017, the sun will be in Virgo, the virgin, and the moon will be at her feet. She will have a crown of nine stars and three planets in alignment making 12 and Jupiter, symbol of deity, will be in the womb area, to exit at her feet. YouTube
Christians might think the child that is birthed and caught up to heaven would be Christ, but if God guides the stars, and if He meant this “great sign” to be about the birth of Christ, He is 2000 years late!
Ruhling says God is on time; He’s the Author of both nature and the Bible–the Bible reveals what we don’t see in nature, as he explains the following…
God called Israel His “first-born” in Exodus 4:22. In other words, the Exodus was an example of a similar event that’s impending and the Exodus came at Passover, the biblical time of judgment, also for Christ and Jerusalem when Titus came in 70 AD.
‘History Repeats’ with the US Like Egypt America has many parallels to Egypt as the greatest nation then and now. They killed babies; the US has aborted 60 million. Egypt enslaved Israel, but the US has enslaved most of its people with alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and drugs. Prescription drugs are a leading cause of illness and death, but we call it ‘healthcare.’ People are in bondage to food, gambling, greed, crime, sex, perversion, TV, violence, ‘music’, etc.
God exercised judgment on Egypt and took Israel to a covenant, saying, “I am married to you,” Jer 3:14. That’s what Christ’s wedding parables are about.
The apostle Paul included the Exodus in “All those things happened to them for examples…ends of the world.” 1Cor 10:1,11. Ruhling summarizes…
Most people don’t see the “ends of the world” coming, but for people who read the Bible, there are numerous signs of concern. For example, the United Nations has September 21 as the International Day of Peace and its theme for this year is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.” The Bible says, “When they shall say ‘Peace and safey,’ sudden destruction comes on them…” 1Thess 5:3.
Ruhling says, If we see Jerusalem surrounded and taken next spring, it confirms “the day of the Lord” in Zechariah 14:1,2, and means judgment is impending on the US. In the meantime, we should be like Abe Lincoln who said, “I will study and get ready, and someday my chance will come.” Lincoln loved the Bible and said it was God’s greatest gift to mankind, “but for it, we would not know right from wrong…”
