We seem to be waiting for Jesus’ return, and even the weather and the stars are saying the time is soon.
We’ve had Hurricane Harvey, then Irma, then Maria, all occurring in the Gulf of Mexico and in surrounding regions, all with severe and even devastating consequences. The storms continue, around the Gulf, and around the Globe.
We’ve had Jupiter hiding inside Virgo for 9 months and late last month, Jupiter was expelled or “born”.
Now, this is one take from a spiritual perspective, which I certainly endorse, though Jesus has not yet appeared…
Revelation 12;1-4 says,
“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.”
Is it not possible that Virgo, the one female astrological sign, is representative of the woman who has given birth? And if so, he who has been born (represented as Jupiter) is the Church, who will now rule with an Iron Rod of Righteousness over the calamity, decadence, and madness that has been on the rise over recent decades. Is it not possible that Donald Trump, in his unpopular but unstinting resolve to support Israel, to counter abortion, and encourage international sovereignty of nation-states, is an international authority who rules counter to societal trends (which are anti-God).
There have been other signs in the skies. We had the blood moons, beginning a few years ago. Matthew 24:29-30 says,
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
Interestingly, the most recent lunar eclipse which spanned America, ended at the starting point of Hurricane Harvey, just days before the Hurricane ripped through the landscape.
We have the fiery red dragon, a kingdom beast, as mentioned in Revelation 12. Could he not be the Islamic kingdoms, with its 7 heads and 10 horns?
But if all these connections between Biblical prophecy and natural events are connected, then where is Jesus? How well has the One New Man = collective of Jew and Gentile coming together been manifested? And where are the resurrection bodies?
Some predicted that the dead in Christ would rise on the 21st/22nd September and Jesus would appear on the 23rd. The month of September has passed.
While it is true that there have been uncanny connections between natural events and scripture over recent months and days, it is also true that Jesus is not here. Why not?
Have we failed again to prepare ourselves as his bride? Have we failed to unite as one body the keepers of the Law (Jew) and the keepers of Grace (Gentile Church), coming together faithfully as One New Man (Matthew 24:35)?
It was predicted that at the beginning of the month of Elul (September) there would be signs: damage to the kingdoms of the East and great storms. Kim Jung Un is under threat of sanction and annihilation; ISIS is losing its grip. And the people in the region of the Gulf of Mexico have experienced great storms.
Jesus, where are you?
Last night it was in the news that the skies of England have turned orange. Is this another timely sign — or warning — from the God of the Universe?
As October passes, I have been told my website will no longer have a host. This may be my final Soaring Post. Or I may, in due season, find another provider that is suitable. Perhaps Feast of Tabernacles, 23rd October, will bring Jesus and my posts will no longer be of service.
We must be prepared for whatever will come, not holding on to the past but prepared for the future, with hope and resolve.
Storms come and pass. We battle on. Love wins.
