Signs In The Heavens
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).

Total Solar Eclipse 2017: Evangelist Ray Comfort on Whether 'Great American Eclipse' is Sign from God
Aug. 16, 2017 - Next Monday the Great American Eclipse will span the country. Some Christian leaders suggest that it is a sign of
God's impending judgment on the country. Evangelist Ray Comfort gave his opinion:
"I've learned to never say that things are definitely a sign." Instead ... Comfort encouraged Christians to use it
as an opportunity to point people to the God of the Bible.

The Coming Solar Eclipse: What the Bible Tells Us About This Phenomenon
July 15, 2017 - A solar eclipse will take place over the United States on August 21st. This has not happened for more than a hundred years.
This particular eclipse may not have a direct connection to Bible prophecy, but there are many passages of Scripture that relate to this phenomenon,
from Moses' time (Exodus 10:21-23) to the crucifixion of Christ (Mark 15:32-33). At the end of the future Tribulation, Revelation 6:12 predicts:
“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.”
