TWO SKY SIGNS TODAY... BIBLICAL ONES
(This article originally published in our 2015 Bible Prophecy As Written Newsletter amid that year's "BLOOD MOON" prophecy-craze-furor. All composite pictures by Bible Prophecy As Written)
Yes. There are 2 signs in the sky right now as we speak that every Christian should be watching, for they are PROPHETIC CERTAINTIES.
They are not 2 signs revealed by breaking the "code" of divinely encrypted verses here and there.
They are plainly stated.
They have nothing to do with the much abused "day and hour" predictions (Matthew 24:32). Not even the currently popular and equally abused "month and year" predictions.
Before this month is over (September 2015 and the unbliblical-hyped "BLOOD MOON") the last eclipse-induced "blood moon" in a series of 4 will converge with a Jewish feast day, supposedly signifying something of prophetic significance is about to happen. Any headline you have seen for the past 12 months, or any of those that are sure to appear in the next 6 months, can be expected to be declared a "fit" for prophetic fulfillment.

#2 BELOW: The BIBLICAL Blood Moon of the prophecies…
…see the difference?
Now, back to the 2 signs in the sky—APPEARING RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK--that every Christian should be watching and expecting to signify ACTUAL PROPHETIC CERTAINTIES. A clue...they are found in THE BIBLE. Don't look for these 2 sky-signs in the tabloid-prophecy websites of prophecy code-breakers. They are too simple
"This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud ...and I will remember My covenant... and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Genesis 9:11-15)
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER: On any rainy day you are bound to spot it. God's covenant Rainbow. Given to global humanity through every successive generation. Revealed as God reveals prophecy-- in the Bible--plain, simple… emphasis on "revealed."
Yet profoundly significant. The Rainbow promises us that there will not be another universal JUDGMENT by WATER.
But it also reminds a world in love with SIN that there is a coming universal JUDGMENT by FIRE.
(2 Peter 3:5-7)
Praise Jesus Christ, "who delivers us [believers] from the Wrath to Come."
(1 Thes. 1:10)
“Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for light by day, and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night ... ‘If this fixed order [sun, moon, stars] departs from before Me,’ declares the LORD, ‘Then the offspring of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever.’ "
(Jeremiah 31:35-36; Psalm 89:36-37)
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER:
Go out and look up every day, and every night.
If the sun, moon and stars are still where we expect them to be--in the sky, shining forth without break-- then the Nation of Israel WILL EXIST WITHOUT BREAK.
That is the required corollary, or "flip side," to the prophecy in SIGN #2 above.
Simple. Prophetic. Hugely significant.
Israel is the most secure nation in the world! Though they are destined for the Great Tribulation, it will lead to Israel’s Spiritual Restoration in Jesus Christ followed by Israel as the head nation in history’s most glorious Kingdom ever, “without end.”
Israel’s eternal existence is secured. (Daniel 7:27)
The proof is in the Sun and the Moon--SKY SIGNS that can be seen and understood--SKY SIGNS that are Biblical!
On a daily basis we can see these 2 Great Sky-Signs of Bible Prophecy. We don’t have to mine the text for prophetic secrets long-hidden between the lines. This gnostic-like idea that a few in-the-know-revelators are divinely elected to unlock unknowable prophetic mysteries for the masses is not Biblical, and it derails legitimate Bible Prophecy. Bible Prophecy was intended to be taught in every Sunday School and every Church. After all, it has been "revealed" in final form for over 1900 years now. (Rev. 1:1; 22:10) It needs no embellishment. It is spectacular and sensational as it stands written.
A THIRD SIGN YET FUTURE
There is a future SIGN #3, still ahead.
That one is the Biblical "BLOOD MOON" (in pic #2 ABOVE). It cannot be forecast by astronomical calculation. . No contrived formula can foretell its arrival. No cosmic-events calendar can schedule it to occur in September, 2015. Unlike artificial speculations, it is sensational “as written.”
SIGN #3) THE BIBLICAL BLOOD MOON
"But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT ["moon into blood," Joel 2:31], AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken... and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:29-30)
But FIRST, before SIGN #3, a SIGN-LESS event every Believer should be looking up for...The RAPTURE!
(1 Thes. 4:16-18)
God bless you in your study of the unveiled, revealed prophecies of the Bible and your walk with Jesus Christ.
Here's how you can know Jesus as your Savior.
