Signs in the Heavens and on Earth

Signs in the Heavens and on Earth

There have been many articles, TV specials and internet videos lately regarding blood moons, the total solar eclipse(s), hurricanes, earthquakes, massive flooding, west coast forest fires, the planet alignment on September 23rd, race wars, ideological/religious wars and rumors of wars with Korea, etc.

Some are saying many of these events are Biblical signs from God who is showing forth His wrath and judgment on America for the sins of the people. Others are saying the 7-year span between the total solar eclipses of August 21, 2017, and April 8, 2024, which crisscross the US and place an X on it, marks the period of the great tribulation.

An article was recently posted on World Net Daily (WND.com) by Mark Blitz who believes the tribulation could begin soon.

9/23/17: More ominous, ‘biblical’ signs in the sky

Mark Biltz believes ‘tribulation could begin soon’

Here is what he says about September 23rd:

“On that day, the sun will be in the constellation Virgo (known as the virgin). The moon will be below the “feet” of the constellation. Additionally, Venus, Mars and Mercury will be above the constellation. As the constellation Leo has nine stars and will also be above Virgo’s head, the alignment can be interpreted as a “crown” of 12 stars.

Revelation 12: 1-2 reads: “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”

Biltz believes the upcoming sign on Sept. 23 is precisely what this passage is referring to.

“The woman clothed with the sun is the constellation Virgo and represents the nation of Israel,” he explained. “The 12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Interestingly, the constellation Leo, the lion, which is above Virgo, is made up of nine stars. The lion represents specifically the tribe of Judah. It just so happens this year during the Days of Awe, three planets will join the constellation Leo making up 12 stars. Virgo will be clothed with the sun, and the moon will be under her feet, fulfilling this sign to precise detail.”

“Furthermore,” said Biltz, “contemporary events on Earth are also precisely fitting with biblical prophecy.”

Blitz quotes from Luke 21:25, which says: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.”

Then he goes on to say:

“The next verse also refers to how ‘the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’ Look what happened immediately after the solar eclipse at the beginning of the month of repentance,” he said. “We have the sea and the waves roaring loud and clear because of Hurricane Harvey. Not only that, the eclipse was on the 21st and the hurricane was the 25th. This event has been directly tied to this verse in Luke 21:25! Talk about predicted in the Bible!”

It sure makes for interesting reading and there is certainly nothing wrong with noting those magnificent occurrences, but let me ask you a question: Does a wise person need to look in the heavens or on earth to tell him or her what is happening or what is about to happen?

The answer is no, and that is because all things must by “nature” follow the Creator’s immutable law of Sowing and Reaping. Therefore, knowing what to expect should be a no-brainer to the wise, to those who do not dwell in darkness (ignorance).

1 Th 5:4-5 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Don’t be deceived, or as the saying goes, “Don’t kid yourself.” God gives us the choice to determine what we do but He withholds the result from our choice.  Therefore, we all, both individually, nationally and globally, reap what we sow.

Gal 6:7  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

If men and nations continue to sow to the wind, which is vanity and all the carnal mindedness it entails, such as lust, greed, hate, etc., then they shall reap the whirlwinds (storms, tempest, hurricanes) that must naturally follow.

When they learn to sow to the heart and begin to love one another with truth and justice for all, then they shall reap the blessings and peace that must naturally follow.

The point is, if you see what is being reaped in both your life and the world around you, then you can “see” what has already been spiritually sown, for the unseen things are understood by the things that are seen (Rom 1:20).

Before we go on, there are two important things we should keep foremost in our hearts and minds.

The first is that we should never be fearful about the things that are happening in the world around us or the things we suffer.

Rev 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

I could elaborate on the subject of fear ad infinitum for it is the exact opposite of faith. The point is, we must all learn to discern and realize that when we find ourselves being fearful or anxious about what is happening today or what tomorrow may bring (Mat 6:25)… our lack of faith is on display.

That coincides with the second thing we need to keep in our hearts and minds and that is that faith and wisdom (the opposites of fear) tell us no matter what is happening in the world around us, no matter what pain and suffering we endure, it is all good (Rom 8:28). http://onelibertyplace.org/its-all-good.

You see, God’s plan doesn’t end in tragedy. It ends in salvation for all… everyman in his own order (1 Tim 2:4, 1 Cor 15:23). If therefore you have wisdom, you will know that all our trials and tribulations that we endure, both individually and nationally, are actually blessings that bring us to maturity in Christ (love) and therefore as children of light we should count them all joy.

James 1:2-4  My brethren, count (judge, esteem) it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (adversity, affliction, trouble); Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Those who don’t yet have the wisdom to understand that are instructed to ask God to give them the wisdom to see it.

James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

The way it works is this: One cannot be freed from bondage unless he or she is first IN bondage. One cannot come out of darkness into the marvelous light (of truth) unless one is first IN the darkness (ignorance), even as one cannot be awakened unless one is first asleep. So if there is to be a great spiritual awaking (and there is… it’s already underway), then a great many people must by default be asleep (and they are).

To that end God created the darkness so that He could command the light to shine out of it! Are you with me?

Likewise, one cannot have a victory unless there is a struggle or a battle(s). One cannot overcome an obstacle unless there is something in the way. Such is also the prerequisite for “salvation”. One cannot be “saved” from anything unless he or she is first in a position where he or she needs to be saved! One cannot be lifted up out of a pit, raised up from the depths of hell, unless that one is first “down” in the pit.

Think about it: How could Christ rise lest he first descend? And, so it is with each and every one of us. Again, we cannot be set free unless we aren’t free! We cannot be healed unless we are first sick (Mat. 9:11, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.)  That applies both spiritually and physically. And, we cannot be resurrected, raised to LIFE, unless we are first DEAD! That’s right! Death (to be carnally minded is death) is a prerequisite for resurrection to LIFE (to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Rom 8:6).

Of course trials and affliction and adversity are painful, some physically, some mentally and some both! But as the saying goes, “No Pain, No Gain.”  Does nature not teach us the beautiful end result of enduring “natural” pain? Ask a mother who has brought forth a child with great labor pains. Will she say the pain was worth it? Of course, and she’ll be willing to endure the pain again to bring forth another.

There are all sorts of examples of pain and struggle in nature bringing forth beauty and new life. There are also many examples of “successful” people who struggled through adversities and failures and bankruptcies and even tragedies only to emerge at the top of their profession, trade or field of artistry. Yea, the caterpillar, through much struggle, emerges from the bondage of the cocoon as a new creature, a beautiful butterfly.

Again, it is written in Romans 1:20 that the things we see and observe in the world around us teach us about the things we don’t see, i.e. spiritual things. So, is bringing forth the Christ child in each and every one of us going to happen without trials and tribulation, without spiritual labor pains? What do you think?

Those who are talking about the planet alignment that will occur on September 23, 2017 draw parallels to Rev 12:1-2 and claim it portends the ushering in of “the end of the world” or the beginning of the great tribulation… as man defines it. Suppose that is true and you believe it. Based on what we’ve discussed so far, is tribulation, i.e. labor pain, a “bad” thing? The answer is, not ultimately. It’s all good! It’s well worth enduring because it means you’re “with child” about to be delivered.

Revelation 12: 1-2 “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”

The Book of Revelation is about the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:1), who resides where? In you (Col 1:27)… the mystery of which is to one day be revealed to you. Because you see… you are, and were from the beginning, a son (no gender intended) of God, like Jesus, who was fully enlightened to His sonship at the age of 12.

I know some are offended by that because it goes against everything they grew up believing in traditional Churchianity. They become so ingrained (sown deep) by their doctrinal “beliefs” that they are fearful to think outside their pews.

But what do the scriptures tell us?

Rom 8:29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Do you think the Creator didn’t foreknow everyone who was ever born? (See “The Word was Made Flesh”). Of course He did, and therefore His plan (call it predestination if you like) is that one day we shall all conform to the image of His Son.

It hasn’t happened or appeared yet, but it’s a done deal… because it is His will.

1 Jn 3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Again, we are all the sons of God… it just hath not yet appeared to all that we are! Remember, it is every man in his own order (1 Cor 15:23).

If you know that, then the next two verses make perfect sense.

1Ti 2:1  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

1Ti 2:2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

If you harbor hate for some or blame or despise others, be they politicians, religious leaders, “sinners” of the flesh, or those who use you or harm you, then by the natural law of sowing and reaping you cannot lead a quiet and peaceable life.

The problem is most people see things through the lens of their flesh eyes instead of their spiritual eyes. To that end, they are both spiritually evil (ignorant) and spiritually adulterous (idolatrous). That is why they look to or seek after signs. That does not mean they are necessarily “bad” people. It’s just not their “end time”, their “last days” yet! Again, we all are brought to the glory of God in our own order (1 Cor. 15:23)

Keep in mind what an evil (ignorant… of Christ) and adulterous (idolatrous) man the Pharisee Saul was before Christ revealed Himself to him and his name (nature) was changed to Paul (meaning little).

Question: If you knew prior to Saul’s conversion what God’s plan was for him in the future, would you have “judged” him differently before his conversion? Would you have harbored hate or resentment for his severe persecution of Christians or would you have prayed for him as instructed in 1 Ti 2:1? I ask that because there are many Saul’s in the world today whose time has not yet come! Think about what unconditional love is.

We sell God (and ourselves) short when we judge others according our perceived beliefs of right and wrong! That is not good and it is unacceptable. Here’s what is good an acceptable:

1Ti 2:3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

1Ti 2:4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

What is the “knowledge” of the truth? It is that we are all sons of God.

Do you think God’s will to have “all men to be saved” can be subverted? If you do, then again, you sell Him short.

So the question of the day is: Do the signs in the heavens and on earth tell us we are headed for great or greater tribulation? The answer is: Open your eyes because the world is already suffering great, great tribulation.

So are things going to get worse? Well, if the “child” has not yet been born (delivered) what does nature tell us? Do not the labor pains get stronger and stronger right up to the birth?

Remember what is written about where heaven, the kingdom of God, is? Luke 17:21… within you! So if a great wonder (sign, miracle, revelation) appears in heaven, where does it occur? In the constellations? Well, if you see it there (physically), then you better “see” it within (spiritually).

Remember also what Jesus says to the religious folks.

Mat 12:39  But he answered and said unto them, An evil (ignorant, children of darkness) and adulterous (idolatrous) generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

The only sign given is not a visible one, but an internal sign, the allegory of which is contained in the story of Jonah being three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish.

Mat 12:40 For as Jonas (meaning dove, symbolic of spirit) was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Once again, if you see the sign of the “Son of man being three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” as just the historical event which happened over 2000 years ago, then you’re seeing with the wrong set of eyes. Here’s a little help… YOU are, WE all are, in the heart of the earth!

Just as Jonah was brought forth from the belly of the great fish, so shall Christ be brought forth from the “heart of the earth”.

The real you, the child of God, not the flesh man, must be brought forth. Have you not read, “You must be born again (from above)?” And that new birth does not come without travail, without labor pains.

Therefore, if you are a “child of light (1 Th 5:4-5) and you see the labor pains, the travail, getting stronger and stronger, do not despair in darkness (ignorance), but rather rejoice in the light, the “knowledge of the truth”… for you know deliverance draws nigh!

Hallelujah! That is Good News.

In conclusion, it should be obvious that both the main stream media and main stream Christianity thrive on fear and bad news. After all, bad news sells so much better than good news and it gets higher ratings that result in more revenue… if you know what I mean.

We are not the bearers of fear and bad news but rather of faith and Good News.

So go have a blessed, fearless, peaceful day! It’s all good!

    Thank you Lance. So much in this article to digest so it will take awhile for me but please keep the articles coming. I read them many times. One subject I would like to discuss with you is the word, FAITH. Faith is an, “F” word, it is Fear in disguise, it is the darkness. Religion is about faith not truth, knowledge and we are to grow and progress to knowledge not just rest on faith. If we build our house on faith, when the winds of carnal understanding begin to blow, our house of faith will fall. We must search for knowledge. If we build our house on the rock of knowledge it is built on the foundation of truth and will not fall. Thank you Lance, and I am sorry for picking on the word, faith, but I really have a problem with the word and it always gets me going. It was you who taught me; “We can tell our children; Don’t touch the hot stove or you will get burned, but until they touch the hot stove and experience hot and burned for themselves, they will not have knowledge of hot and burned, only belief, “faith.” I have touched the hot stove and I now have knowledge thanks to you. YOU ARE THE BEST!

      Thanks Bob for your comments regarding “faith”.

      All my life I searched for God in all the wrong places. I even searched and studied the Bible like few people ever have and yet never came to the knowledge (knowing) of the truth. Paul gives testimony to that fact, to which I add my own.

      I grew up as most people have with an abstract view of God because I believed He was “separate” from us (me), so I always prayed to a God out there… somewhere. That abstract god of faith and belief is the direct cause of man’s many religions because abstractions have begotten many concepts of God.

      The point is, a man who thinks himself to be separate from God, is a man who does not know God. A man who can say in his heart that I and my Father are one, is not a man who believes in God, but rather a man who knows God.

      There is another great misconception in the ranks of Christianity regarding faith, and that misconception begins with the erroneous belief that God works for us, instead of with us. In other words, if we have faith in God He will accomplish what we want Him to. However, as the scripture says, faith without works is dead.

      Men have removed mountains by exercising the knowledge and power given by God, but not through idleness and wishful thinking. God has given man power to soar into space and sail beneath the oceans and communicate simultaneously to the whole world… but not by wishful thinking, nor by faith and belief, nor by sitting idly by and letting God do it.

      You may ask God to fulfill your desire to be a great pianist and have the faith and belief that He will answer your prayer. But if you never lift a finger to practice the scales, your faith is dead and your belief is in vain.

      There is much more to this than I can elaborate on in this short reply. However, I’m currently working on an article about prayer and meditation which goes more in depth as to how we come to “know” God instead of just believing in God.

      Thanks again,

      Lance

        Dear Brothers
        I am totally surprised by your discourse about faith and its suggested relation to one of those F… words,i hope it was in reference to the word fear only .Must we go back to our old ways of pride and arrogance and elitism and search for knowledge that only God can give to each person in his own time. Yes ,some have been give eyes to see and are at advanced stages .The knowledge they have been give can only be proven to others through scripture or revealed to them in their own time. Without faith no man can know God let alone believe in him ,for to know God is faith ,as Abraham had faith. GOD JUSTIFIES THROUGH AND BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. We have one God and only one God,who is also the son of God,i hope that mystery has been solved for all of us here.

        Please read the following scripture

        The Righteousness of God Through Faith

        Rom 3:21  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 
        Rom 3:22  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 
        Rom 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 
        Rom 3:24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 
        Rom 3:25  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 
        Rom 3:26  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. 
        Rom 3:27  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 
        Rom 3:28  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 
        Rom 3:29  Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 
        Rom 3:30  Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 
        Rom 3:31  Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. 

        What are the works of faith ?I would suggest that they are spiritual works from the heart. There is no justification in works devised with our brains and brought forth with our hands.
        The following scripture describes those who are blessed ,and notice the first are the poor in spirit maybe they don”t have knowledge but I bet they have faith. The rest of the attributes are works of faith brought forth from the heart, from within, which are spiritual.

        Mat_5:3  Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
        Mat_5:5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
        Mat_5:7  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
        Mat_5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
        Mat_5:9  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

        I hope that you are not offended by my disagreeing with you but fear is a natural defense and it is good and it saves lives. Ask any Christian soldier who has to go into battle. That soldier may die but he draws courage from his faith that he will have salvation in Christ. Then there is the saying that there are no atheists in fox holes ,well their belief is created and fostered by fear. Fear ,not necessarily of the first death but surely of the second. Fear is the precursor to faith and only a growing faith can assuage that fear.

          Dear Brother Robert,
          I am so glad you are reading Lance’s articles and the responses also. Certainly I did not mean to talk down to anyone in what I said, and “F” word is in reference to, “BAD” words and unfortunately there are many. I did not mean to conjure up any one word in particular with the term.
          My problem with faith is that many cannot talk about religion without becoming angry because if they hear something different from what they were taught from the faith of their fathers, they can become fearful and fear begets anger. Certainly the Jewish people had faith but what did it do for them.
          Of course we must all begin our religious journey by belief and faith but if we do not progress to spiritual truth, knowledge, our faith can become stagnant. Even the disciples hid in fear after the crucifixion of Jesus because they still did not get it after all Jesus taught them. They had faith but it was not enough. Their faith was that the savior was going to destroy the Romans and return glory to the house of Judah. Even in light of all that Jesus taught them, in person, their understanding was carnal, not spiritual.
          Thank you, Robert for your thoughts on these subjects. I don’t mean to, disagree, with what you write, just that I think there is more. I always enjoy reading what you have to say and I do not feel I am better than anyone or know more. About 5 or 6 years ago I thought I knew more about God than most, my heart was hardened by my faith but then I met Lance and had my eyes opened to a spiritual God that lives within each of us. It was not an immediate transformation for me because my eyes were closed to someone knowing more than what the church I belonged to taught.
          I have belonged to many churches through my life long search for God and I found things in each church that I knew were true as I had confirmation from my heart, but there were also many things, (doctrines of men,) that were not confirmed by my heart and so my search continues for I am not yet, “all knowing.”

          Brotherly love to you Robert and thank you for caring enough to send your thoughts and ideas.

            Dear Brother Robert
            I do not disagree completely with you Robert .I have had a few discourses with Lance over the years on the subject as i am sure that you have. The important thing to remember is that we all have to go through a process throughout life from baby food to meat. We all are bombarded with information from the cradle to the grave . Much of it is garbage, we have to have the ability to sift through this info and to understand what is true Gospel and what is not. How many times did Christ admonish his disciples for their lack of faith and how many times had he praised those that came to him for healing,for their faith. In our search for knowledge, as more is revealed to us, our faith should be increasing and growing. Faith is the basis and backbone of salvation through Christ. To every person truths not just the truth ,are revealed by the holy spirit ,its not just a one time revelation, but every person in their own time.Non of us are all knowing and we will never be, for that is the realm of God. We will know everything we need to know when we sit at the feet of Jesus our God in The Kingdom,and until that time we live by faith regardless of the amount of knowledge we have accumulated or been blessed and privileged with ,in this flesh. Again any knowledge we have been privileged to receive should only increase our faith. We all are subject to the trap of pride ,arrogance and elitism ,that is the flaw of human nature and we battle them on a daily basis, not one person is exclusive to this fact of life. That trap destroys faith and brings discontent and unhappiness to our lives. That trap makes us impersonal towards God ,because that trap is all about self.
            Dear Robert, you probably have a software bible on your computer with search parameters ,please search up the word faith and you will find
            231 verses and, 247 matches for the word.
            The result and effects of a lack of faith are fear,doubt ,unhappiness, discontent ,bewilderment,disbelief ,lack of trust etc. etc. and in the end without faith there is no salvation.
            Faith leads to forgiveness, to healing ,to understanding, to prosperity in the riches of the spirit, love,kindness, happiness ,mercy and all of the fruits of the spirit.

            Heb_10:38  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

            What more can be said about faith.

            Robert I understand your discontent with the world ,we all have the same feelings, but the problems of this world are beyond our control and we must place those problems in the hands of God ,as well as our own problems for the sake of our own sanity. Robert please do not loose your faith.
            Faith is all about trust in Jesus Christ The Word Of God, who is God,the one and only God ,our one and only God.
            I would venture to say that we have all engaged our faith and disengaged from our faith and re-engaged during our lifetime, I know that I have. Blessed are those who have had an uninterrupted and growing faith all their life .

            Peace be to you Brother and thank you for the correspondence,I do enjoy it.

    Its great to see you posting again Lance,and from the responses that i am reading it is obvious that these posts are giving great comfort to many that are of the same mind . The comfort of communing together although not in person but still knowing that others are reading these posts in the same mindedness. To me it re-enforces the purpose and relevance of scripture ,that recorded history which God inspired chosen men to write and record for regardless of who teaches about Christ [The Word Of God] the ultimate proof used is from scripture.

    Would the fact that the word translated “when” in 1John 3:2, of the KJV, should be translated “if” and the subject “appear,” in the KJV, would be better translated “shine out of – from within,” change your prospective of “all” men being saved…?

I have been fighting breast cancer all year an have now moved to Ohio my faith has been so bright. I have been tested all year long an have fallen to my knees a few times, but my father has always pulled me up!
    I am so proud to call you my friend. An I look at our meeting as a new beginning. I hope you still remember me as I do you.
    Keep opening people’s minds an spirits.

    Thanks Lance;
