The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day –
For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light. (Isaiah 13:10)
I stood with the masses and never gave a thought how our world had come to a screeching halt. The highways and byways, cars were parked everywhere. The city streets reminded me of a Walmart parking lot. The sky darkened in the bright of day. People looked toward the heavens as though Christ might come again. The Bible speaks of Christ rising in the dark of day. Personally, I would rather believe Christ left the earth in jubilation taking the sins of mankind with Him.
I, too, watched in awe. Is it time for all those who believe to rise and shine? The earth paused. Nature’s anointed knew, also, this was something supernatural. An eerie quiet fell over the world and God, with His mighty power, covered our country in darkness. Ashamed, disgruntled, and disappointed, our Father in heaven cast shadows where sin has traveled. Civil unrest has undermined His will. Determined to cast His word, He covered the sun in attempt to prove His power.
On a lit-less day, God took over our routines. We stood in awe and watched; some of God, prayed. Most think the path of darkness it followed was just a coincidence. But I was aware of His ultimate power showing the strength where Satan ruled. From non-believers to those of all faiths, God in heaven proved He knew what to cover on Earth. Praying people would take notice as Satan tried to rule the skies, our Father in heaven left little doubt when the darkness fell.
Astronomers searched the stars in the heavens. But only God will let the world know that the heavens are not for the naked eye; but merely for the souls that truly believe. In the streets, faith was tested. Holding hands, the Christians prayed.
I stood in a doorway, like an eye of a needle….watching for a camel to come.*
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (Mark 10:25)
And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud And the moon will not give its light. (Ezekiel 32:7)
The sun and moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness. (Joel 3:15)
On many occasions, God commanded His people to watch. He gave signs for a reason. If He didn’t want us to pay attention, He wouldn’t have given signs. It is unusual that today’s social upheavals are an indication of a trying time – a time when there is a natural predisposition for sin, and for strict judgment of that sin.
Looking at the map below, you will see the exact route that the August 21, 2017 eclipse traveled.
There has been much social unrest in this country for a very long time. With that being said, observe on the map below the critical areas of major rioting and upheavals in the last 50 years.
