And there shall be sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
The total solar eclipse that occurred yesterday and was visible over most of the United States it created such a stir that many traveled far distances just to see this phenomenal which was an awesome display of God's sovereign powers. The last total solar eclipse occurred February 26, 1979; it was the last such event that was seen in the United States in the 20th century and was visible from the Pacific Northwest through northern Canada. The total eclipse began at sunrise in the North Pacific, with the totality sweeping through Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana, as well as most of central Canada and Greenland. The 1979 eclipse lasted just over two minutes. (2017 Farmers Almanac). Our next eclipse is scheduled to appear in 2024.
What do these eclipses mean to man? To me it means that God is displaying His awesome powers as the sun and moon obey His command just as they did during His Son's crucifixion. What if God had commanded the sun and the moon to remain in an eclipse state for a longer period of time; say for a day? This would have gotten man's attention; stand and take notice of God awesome power and reverence Him for who He is-the sovereign God the creator of all creations.
The earth is filled with violence and hate; God is angry and is showing His displeasure with humanity in many ways. He is sending floods, storms and raging fires, but man doesn't appear to be getting the message; a much longer eclipse would certainly have gotten our attention.
Allow me to encourage all to take notice to God's warning signs, because His return is certain. Are you ready?
