The first solar eclipse to cross America in 99 years is coming. To some, it’s an act of God

(Worthy News) - On Monday, Aug. 21, in the middle of the day, the sky will go dark. The temperature will suddenly get several degrees colder. Birds will stop chirping and retreat to their nests. And tens of millions of people, crammed into a 60-mile-wide path that crosses from Oregon to the Carolinas, will stand in America looking up at the sky.

It’s easy to understand why many people will view this as an act of God.

The total solar eclipse that will cross America this summer — an event that last happened 99 years ago — will be an important moment for scientific observers and a massive nationwide spectator event. It will also, for many people of faith, be evidence of God’s majesty — and even, to a few, a harbinger of the coming end of the world.

“The Bible says a number of times that there’s going to be signs in the heavens before Jesus Christ returns to Earth. We see this as possibly one of those,” Ray said about the eclipse.

He is even more interested in another astronomical event that will occur 33 days after the eclipse, on Sept. 23, 2017.

The Book of Revelation, which is full of extraordinary imagery, describes a woman “clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head” who gives birth to a boy who will “rule all the nations with an iron scepter” while she is threatened by a red, seven-headed dragon. The woman then grows the wings of an eagle and is swallowed up by the earth.

Ray says that image will be created in the sky on Sept. 23. The constellation Virgo — representing the woman — will be clothed in sunlight, in a position that is over the moon and under nine stars and three planets. The planet Jupiter, which will have been inside Virgo — in her womb, in Ray’s interpretation — will move out of Virgo, as if she is giving birth. [ Source ]

  1. I remember a partial solar eclipse when we lived in Chicago in the mid 80s. We made a little observatory with a cardboard box and a tiny hole in one end. We looked at the opposite end at the shadow it cast. The light outside got to be a strange green color during the darkest part of it. Strange feelings of unease overcame us although we are not the superstitious or nervous type.
    Romans chapter 1 - check it out. He speaks to us through his creation so that they are without excuse.

  2. I believe this event will be far more spiritually powerful than commentors have expressed thus far. The article clearly says it will be a wide as well as long sight (all across the country - from Oregon to the Carolinas) with millions
    Able to see...) This is not the
    ' usual' type of eclipse we think of. It truly will be a wondrous 'sign' to behold -
    Unless I'm understanding
    Incorrectly. I FOR ONE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE BOTH OF THESE...as I am one "awaiting His return"...
