This September 23rd sign has gotten a lot of attention from both the Christian and non-Christian world in the last few weeks (especially the last few days). You have people suggesting that the September 23rd sign marked the beginning of the end of the world. And some have even claimed that it would end without question, but it didn’t. As a result, many people are now looking at the Christians as if it were, as a group, totally ignorant (just another silly Y2K scare for nothing). After all, it’s the 24th and we are all still here… right?
Before people get up in arms about this sign I want to simply point out a few things.
One, it happened during the Feast of Trumpets for crying out loud. Two, the bible said it would happen, and it did. Three, although I was excited about the potential for this being a rapture date but find myself still here, I personally believe that this sign was a prophetic nod to the fact that the rapture and tribulation are right around the corner. And in turn, that this current generation is the generation that will see the last days.
Why do I say this?
In Revelation 12 we find a woman giving birth to a man-child that is “caught up” to heaven. This same Hebrew word “ērpasthē“, which means caught up is the same word used in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, talking of those who are still alive that are “caught up” in the rapture.
Another thing to consider is the fact that Jupiter still has not yet left the inside of Virgo. Therefore, how is the dragon going to attempt to eat the child if it is still within the safety zone of its mother? I am curious to see what events unfold across the world as Jupiter leaves the safety zone of Virgo, and in turn allowing the child to be taken up.
Now, does this mean that the moment Jupiter leaves the inner region of Virgo the rapture will instantly happen? No, I don’t think so. However, I will gladly suggest that this symbolizes the final sign of fulfillment needing to occur before the rapture can take place (which is why I think the Hebrew word ērpasthē was used in coloration with this sign).
Luke 21:25 says that there would be signs in the sun moon and stars and that after this there would be great distress both in the heavens and on the earth. With that in mind, I do not think it is a coincidence that this sign occurred when it did. Just look at the political world stage today, both for Israel and the world over. Things are ramping up.
Not only does this sign prove the bible to be the truth, but its timing should be a warming to those that think things will get better before they get worse.
But, what do I know right? I clearly am just ignorant.
Jews didn’t just recently start gaining full access Temple mount or anything.
What do I know, right?
