Signs of the Times

Signs In The Heavens


PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

Jesus said that in the end times there will be unusual activity in the skies. It will begin before the Tribulation Period even starts, and will get progressively worse during the course of those seven years, leading up to the return of Jesus as King of Kings.

Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." (Luke 21:10-11)

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:25-28)

In the Book of Revelation the opening of the Sixth Seal will cause the sun to turn black, the moon to be blood-red, and stars to fall to earth. The Greek word for "star" is aster, so this means that asteroids will strike the planet (Revelation 6:12-13).

At the sounding of the Fourth Trumpet, a third of the sky will be blacked out (Revelation 8:12).

Also, when the Fourth Bowl of Wrath is poured out it will cause the sun to send an intense blast of heat (Revelation 16:8-9).

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?
