The Solar Eclipse - Signs in the Heavens - Earthquake? - Christ's Crucifiction and Return? The Protestant Reformation, Bolshevik Revolution, Millennial Kingdom... Some Thoughts to Consider!
Today is also the New Moon (begins at 11:30 today). God in the Scriptures did things according to the time-pieces that He put in the heavens. Things were calibrated throughout Scripture according to the New Moon (the first day of the new month, when the moon is completely dark).
It is interesting that the site on the 7 Salems (at end of this article), refers to the New Madrid fault... however, he without discernment uses the word "doomsday" even though he is not predicting one. This has nothing to do with doomsday.
It has to do with HARBINGERS... OMENS... SIGNS... even if there is an earthquake today or in the next 3 days... it will not be doomsday, it will be a SIGN that JUDGMENT is COMING... which could be 7 years from now, as I explained this is the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and the 100th Anniversary of the bloody Bolshevik Revolution in which the Jewish Bolsheviks began the murder of between 66 and 180 million European Christians... and that didn't all happen over night either.
If the Great Tribulation is 7 years long, it may begin this year... and according to my Patriarch's chart published many years ago, 2024 may be the year Christ returns and 2025 the 120th Jubilee from Creation the Millennial Kingdom, 1000 years of rest/peace. 120 is a special number, signifying a probational period of trial and testing and judgment.
There was a 3-hour solar eclipse when Christ was crucified.
45Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
—accompanied toward the end by an earthquake.
50Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
It will be quite interesting to see if there is an earthquake today. and also possibly 3 days from now; merely symbolic.
As I write in my commentary on John 18-21,* the betrayal to the ascension, I personally hypothesize that the earthquake after Christ died was a sort of "sonic boom" of Christ's Divinity exiting His earthly body—and there was another earthquake when He arose, possibly when His Spirit reentered His corpse in the tomb.

25And 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;
26Men’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.
27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
HOWEVER, remember also, deliverance will never come without true repentance, and only those who repent will be delivered, the rest will be judged without mercy. Those who do not truly look into the Word of God and realize that God did not abolish His Law—His Moral Code that He commanded us to follow throughout all our generations forever (a mere 613 or so laws all perfect and given for our good, which carnal "Christians" think is "too much"--even though they bow down to HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of corrupt laws of an illegitimate government, which shows who their true God is).... those who do not truly repent (which includes stopping doing what God forbade and start doing what He commanded, after confessing sin and repenting of it) will have but one thing to look forward to:
26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
[Understand, v.26 does not imply that you can lose your salvation; which is impossible if God has ordained you unto life. However, every tree is known by its fruit and Christ reveals that MANY "good" Christians (who thought themselves such)... who thought they had been doing "wonderful things" in Christ's Name, will hear, "I never knew you, depart from Me ye that work iniquity [actually, "lawlessness"]" in v.26 "received the knowledge of the truth" is not conversion... it was hearing it and walking away from it without repenting and without bringing forth fruit meet for repentance. Also it was called Moses' Law to honor Moses, but it was God's Law; and those who despise God's Law despise God. He commanded, "This is the Way, walk ye in it; depart not to the left hand or the right" and "Be holy as I am Holy". God is Immutable. He cannot change. Morality does not change. Evil never becomes good; abominations never become wholesome. What God declared to be abominations 4,000 years ago still are today. We cannot be holy as He is Holy if the Standard of Holiness changed or was abolished. Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (the violation of God's Law). The Law does not save. It is a by-product of salvation and being indwelled by God's Spirit and walking where He leads so we will not sin.]
This below link is interesting. I looked on my Rand McNally DVD (which is like 20 years old) and I verified all of the Salems but those in WY, NE, and ID.
I don't know if they line up perfectly as in the below, so they are all in the path
This of course proves nothing, but God did put signs in the heavens; however, interpretation of what is thought to be significant can be subjective and for lack of a better word "coincidental" (though there are no coincidences or chance with God, not everything that seems to be significant in the way we think actually is).
And of course, it does not mean that there is anything that will happen immediately, but it could be the harbinger of things to come, as I explained, this is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation that started in Germany (and currently Germany is being destroyed) and it is the 100th anniversary of the bloody Bolshevik Revolution* which set in motion the extermination of between 66 and 180 million white Christians in eastern Europe and Russia.
[* which I first pointed out over a year ago, months before Trump was elected. It is also curious about the name Trump and all the Trumps that sound in prophecy.]
I emailed months ago that this year there are supposed to be many signs in the heavens, and even a change to colder temperatures.
Was it last year or a few years ago that there were 5 blood moons or something?
As Cromwell said, "trust in God and keep your powder dry".
Even so come Lord Jesus
However, Christ's return won't be a happy event for all...
Christ will command the holy angels
27But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before Me.
Those who reject His Law reject Him. His Law is identical to that of God. Scripture clearly tells us this; Scripture also tells us those who don't keep God's Commandments (all of them, not merely the ones they pick and choose; that is not obedience, but "self-serve") don't even know God.
The time to get your heart right with your Creator is now, otherwise, He is not your Redeemer, but He will be your Judge.
Each morning I read a chapter or so of the Old and the New Testament, and some of Dr. Gordon Clark.
A few months ago in my reading of Ecclesiastes, I felt led to start a commentary on it... I just completed it today (1 hour ago), 554 pages.
I finished in my reading Lamentations a few days ago, and sent out an email of a chapter of it.
Just now I felt led to read an extra chapter, as I am in Ezekiel... This was my reading I just read 5 minutes ago.
Please read through the whole...
1Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.
3Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
4And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
5Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.
6An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.
7The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.
8Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.
9And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.
10Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
11Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall there be wailing for them.
12The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
13For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
14They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
15The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.
16But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.
17All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.
18They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
19They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
20As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them.
21And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
22My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
23Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
24Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their holy places shall be defiled.
25Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.
27The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
God send an earthquake... wake Your people up. Send a pestilence and destroy out the heathen, our enemies, the antichrists from among us and preserve your people, move in them, pour out the Holy Spirit upon them to convict them of their sins and realize the ONLY thing that will preserve them in repentance--FULL repentance and obedience--FULL obedience.
15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
12Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Faith without works is dead. Love without obedience is dead. If you love Me, keep My Commandments. If ye keep my commandments ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my father's commandments and abide in his love. He who says I know Him [God] and keepeth not His Commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. I came not to do my own will but the will of Him who sent me. the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. I did not come to destroy the Law. Not one jot or tittle shall pass from the Law. Those who think christ abolished the law follow a false Christ. The law does not save--it is a by product of salvation--understanding God's Word, having God put within the desire to keep it and the ability to keep it through the power of the Holy Spirit--not for salvation, but because God commanded it and that's what honorable children do--obey their father.
