“Let Them Be For Signs”

“Let Them Be For Signs”

Blessings folk!

A little rabbit chase today…

Today is the day of the “Great American Eclipse”.

Many have asked if there is significance to this.
Yes, there is.

Many want to know what the significance is.
I do not know.

I do know that it is not many of the things that you have seen/heard in the media, internet, pulpits, etc.

The Word tells us much about these things.

Look at what the Lord said at the beginning…

Gen 1:14-15

Then God said,
“Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night,
and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;

and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”;
and it was so.

God created the lights in the expanse of the heavens.

Note their purpose…

  • to separate the day from the night
  • for signs
  • for seasons
  • for days and years

This is distinct purpose.

Focusing on one.

The lights int he expanse are given for signs.
Yes, signs.

Nothing is by happenstance.
The Lord is saying something, though not what many will think.

An example.
One of my daughters forward an article yesterday that gave many interesting facts, figures, numerical relationships, etc. related to the eclipse.

That is all fine and well.

But, the writer stated…

The 7 year Tribulation is also known as the Day of the LORD when God enters into judgment with the Gentile nations.

This is a common error.
There is no “Seven Year Tribulation Period”.
There is the great tribulation that occurs in the 70th week of Daniel 9…the “last” seven year period.
The great tribulation is satan’s wrath poured out on Israel/Jews and the Church - Rev. 12.
The Day of the Lord is God’s wrath poured out upon unbelieving man.

When someone does not know this basic, clear truth from the Word, then why give much heed to conclusions they may draw related to other issues?

So, allow the Spirit to discern within you.

Yes, there are signs.
Yes, this is likely one.
Yes, the Lord will give understanding to those who seek Him - Daniel 11.

The Lord has blessed us to live in such a time as this.

Allow His Power and Presence to manifest through you…everywhere.
