Wittenberg, Obama, October 31st, and the 500

Tradition ascribes the date of October 31, 1517 as the beginning of the Reformation. On October 31, 2017, many in Germany and around the world will mark 500 years since this event that permanently changed the face and course of Christianity.

Today, the Obama Foundation announced additional information on the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago on October 31 and November 1. The Foundation will welcome approximately five hundred civic leaders from around Chicago, the United States, and the world for a two-day, immersive event. During this inaugural Summit, young leaders will come together for a hands-on exchange of ideas to inspire and empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities.

I am not posting this to make any type of correlation. I just find it interesting that these dates and numbers match up. It makes me wonder if there is anything to look at here. Because, you have to admit… it’s pretty ironic.

Reviewing the Revelation Sign some more

Well, as I stated in my last post, I haven’t been able to set this Revelation sign down for some reason.  I just keep looking at it and toward what potential signs might be in the sky that match what the bible has to say regarding that sign. With that, here is a quick update on what I have found.

First, I covered a good chunk of verses 1 through 3 in previous posts, which leads me to verse 4.

Revelation 12:4 – And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

So, basically in short, Draco the dragon constellation is going to be the cause of a meteor shower on October 7th.  Exactly fifteen days after the great wonder in heaven, we have a dragon casting down stars.

Another cool thing that I noticed in this article is that the Harvest moon is mentioned. Not only is the Harvest moon tonight, and it will be huge and orange, but… I particularly like what it represents. Not only will this be the first in almost a decade, but it essentially symbolizes a time when the harvest is ripe and ready to be plucked from the earth (the bride perhaps?). Before the advent of electricity, laborers would work through the night on a harvest moon collecting the harvest since the moonlight was so bright. Its light is so bright that it allowed them to visibly work through the night collecting the fruits of their labor.

Mathew 9:37Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few (here Jesus is talking about spreading the gospel and growing the fold).

Is God telling us something?

Is it possible that the Revelation 12 events are still unfolding before us in the heavens right now. Could God be telling us that the harvest is ready and that soon Satan will be cast down and given just a short while?

Regardless of what God’s timing ends up being, I am still watching and hopeful.

Something exciting is happening. I can just feel it.

Then again, I’m probably just ignorant.

Signs of the Times and the end of the world

Over the course of the last two weeks I have been amerced in the quote “signs of the times“, as I am sure many other Christians have been doing. It has been a roller coaster to say the least. The ups and downs of anxiety, excitement, disappointment, and urgency have left me with a frenzy of varying expectations.

As the great wonder in heaven approached us between September 21st and the 23rd (Revelation 12:1-2) I found myself amerced in the bible trying to figure out the so called signs of the times. This last few weeks I have found myself feeling like those disciples as they asked Jesus face to face when the end would come and how to tell when it was happening.

Mathew 24:3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

After this verse we find Jesus spitting out a huge laundry list of things that would hint toward the second coming and the end of the world. As the great wonder in heaven came and went and I was left to my vises perplexed with awe and wonder on September 24th, I began to dig even deeper into the bible for answers. For a short while I continued to find myself digging deeper into the Jewish calendar and the different festivals and feasts in an attempt to discern the times. Things like the fact that this year marks the 120th Jubilee, or 6,000th biblical year. Or the fact that the day of Atonement is exactly 40 days after the Great American Eclipse (also known as Yom Kippur). There are just so many amazing things lining up here that I could literally go on and on and on and on about it.

But, I decided to stop… because I realized something. And here’s why…

Luke 12:56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

In the bible we are presented with a vast people intelligent enough to commit the entire Old Testament to memory. These people knew the Torah front and back as if it were sown into the back of their eyelids. And yet, the Pharisees of that day and most of the Jews of that time (including today) were expecting something different. They were taking a more literal approach to the Old Testament prophecies about the coming king that would save. They were expecting a king that would rise to power rather than a king that would die and rise to glory. To be blunt, the people who spent their lives injecting the Torah into their brains like meth missed the mark when it came to the prophecies surrounding the birth, death, burial, and resurrection of their coming king.

Now, taking that into context for today, how does that make us as Christians any different?

As this great wonder of the Revelation 12 sign was ready to appear so many of us rushed to the aid of those old tactics of the Pharisees by trying to tie everything Jesus said and did alongside the prophecies of his second coming.

How does doing this not make us just like them?

Is it possible that there is another meaning that seems like it wouldn’t make sense to us just as it did in the days of Christ’s ministry on the earth?

With this type of mindset I stepped away from the prophecies, Jubilees, Feast days, festivals, and global events with the realization that the second time around might very well be just as subtle and misinterpreted as the first time around.

With that, shortly after, I stumbled into this following video. Although I will admit that I don’t claim to agree entirely… I find it rather peculiar that what is being said here lines up with some of what has been on my heart for the last few days. Despite the fact that some of what is mentioned here might place you outside of your comfort zone regarding the rapture and the second coming of Christ… one can’t help but take it all in and ponder the possibilities.

With all of that said, I am absolutely certain that the first two verses of Revelation 12 have been fulfilled (which proves that the time is at hand). The real question now is what we plan to do about it. Because, at the end of it all… this event will come on you like a thief in the night. Unless of course, if you are awake.

Revelation 3:3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

In short; if you are watching… he will not come on you as a thief and you will know the hour that he comes. And, is it possible that we are under thinking it by over complicating it?

Although I in no way claim to have any of this stuff figured out… my encouragement to you all is to stay watchful. We are in the midnight hour. The bridegroom is coming. Don’t run out of oil. Keep your lamp burning.

Climate change… yeah, that’s it.

Revelation 9:3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

August 31st –  Trinidad

September 9th – Russia

September 12th – Dagestan

September 11th – China

Although I have personal reason to believe that the Revelation 9 reference to locusts is actually a result of the bottomless pit being opened during the tribulation period, I will say this. When you look at all that is currently happening (earthquakes in diverse places, devastating whirlwinds, one third of North America currently on fire, floods, and more…), I can’t help but see this type of thing as a precursor to what is to come shortly.

But, who are we kidding, right? I am ignorant. It’s all probably just climate change.

Baptism in a van down by the river

Today was an awesome day to be out at the water, grilling food, playing music, and watching people get baptized. I will just let the following photos speak for themselves. It was a blast and Sarah and I are beyond blessed to have found a home among this community of fellow believers.

Jesus is real… and he is headed back weather you are ready for it or not.

Peggy Whitson and the number of a man

Well, it’s official.

Peggy Annette Whitson has returned from space. With her accumulated time in space she has accomplished the world record for a single person to obtain the most time in such an environment.

They came home yesterday.

I think the thing I like the most about this little bit of snarky propaganda is that it is suddenly being promoted as only 665 days in space rather than the original 666 which she was previously so proud to obtain.

The updated media coverage reads as follows.

Whitson is expected to spend around 290 days on orbit before returning aboard Soyuz MS-04. Whitson returned to earth on September 3, 2017 after she accrued a total of 665 days in space over the course of her career. Her Soyuz capsule landed in Kazakhstan shortly after sunrise Sunday — Saturday night back in the U.S.

So then, what happened to that one day? Let’s take a look, shall we…

I’m sorry… but that is a total load of crap. She actually did spend 666 days and the media is just padding it with fluff. The final tally came to a total of 665 days, 22 hours, and 22 minutes. You are literally an hour and a half shy of a full day. The woman spent 666 days in space regardless if they want to admit that or not.

Now, I have my personal reasons for thinking it is all a load of crap to begin with… some of which I have rambled on about in the science section of this site, if you wanted to take a look.

Regardless of my personal view point… only being one and a half hours shy is still a full day in my book. When someone ask you, “what did you do today“… they aren’t talking about the full 24 hours, but rather the bulk of that time. The woman spent 666 days in a studio and that’s all there is to it. Whether or not one can consider this satanic number of a man to be spent is space or fake space is beside the point. What matters here is that NASA could have extended her trip by one day. Or they could have reduced her trip by one day. But they didn’t.

The reason for that is simple. But, rather than ramble even further… you can go read this blog post I wrote a few weeks ago to get a taste for why I think this type of thing is no coincidence with companies like NASA in particular.

NASA has proven time and time again that they are ritualistic in nature… and yesterday’s proudly achieved nonsense is just one more wonderful example of such hoop-la.
