Heavenly Sign from Revelation 12 to Appear during Fall 2017

October 22, 2015


Does the Bride (Church) await expectantly for Her Bridegroom? Yes. But in the meantime, She still needs busy Herself building His Kingdom. Nevertheless, it is fun to watch for the signs! And this one is probably more exciting than the four blood moons because there can be no doubt whatsoever whether this one is a biblical sign. And it happens just a few months before the 70th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation after almost 2,000 years.

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. (Revelation 12:1-2)

As you can see from the previous prophetic Bible verse from the book of Revelation, the “heavenly sign” depicted in the image painted for us above is supposed to appear in our skies one day. This is to serve as an indication of the nearness of the time of Christ’s return.

It is also to indicate the most terrible time to come in all of history known in the Bible as the tribulation. Most significantly, this is to be the period in history when the Antichrist, who, by the time we reach that point in time (when this sign appears in the sky), will have already been in power (or on the public scene) for at least the previous three and a half years. This is when he begins to show his true colors.


Soon after this, he will start to persecute Christians and likely Jews as well. He will be beheading anyone that does not take the mark of the beast (666). Anyone who chooses to take this mark will get a fast ticket to Hell. Some believe this mark may be an identifying microchip (RFID) to be placed under the skin. There is one like this expected to be implanted by 2017.

Interestingly, in an older version of Obamacare, the implantation of such a microchip had also been set to go forward in 2017. Apparently that version of the law was struck down and the new one does not contain it any longer.


Due to its placement in the book of Revelation, many Bible scholars believe that the event described therein that is to take place among our constellations will happen right in the middle of this most dreadful seven-year period. The middle is to be the most difficult part of this period of time, launching us into what has become known as “the Great Tribulation.”


There are those who say that the only time in 7,000 years that the stars, sun, and moon will line up exactly like Apostle John said they would in Revelation 12 will be on the morning of September 23, 2017.

And here is Scott Clarke’s website:  Either he or someone else must have had incredible patience to be able to check on these alignments throughout a 7,000 year period. Here is a close up of it.


Who are the woman and the baby?

In order for us to determine whether or not these particular constellations are the correct ones for this sign to appear within, we need to know who the baby and the woman are that this verse in Revelation refers to. Most Bible scholars agree that the woman is Mary. Although there is some confusion whether the woman is actually meant to be a representative of Israel and/or of the Church. Nevertheless, Mary fits both types of women in this description because she was simultaneously an Israelite as well as the first Christian. She was the first to birth Christ into the world. We all do that when we share the Gospel with others. The Word of God is like seed that we plant in the hearts of others. Sometimes this seed takes root. Sometimes it doesn’t.

There is absolutely no doubt that the baby being referred to here was Jesus. Nor would there be any doubt whatsoever who it was that birthed Jesus (Mary). The only reason some believe “the woman” being referred to in this particular verse was either the nation of Israel or the Church or both is found in successive verses (4-6) where the woman is hidden from the devil/dragon once Jesus is born:

And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.  Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

Of course, this didn’t happen to Mary after Jesus was caught up to God and His throne, so it is likely representative of either Israel or the Church, using Mary as the icon to represent either one or both of them. However, my purpose isn’t to determine who Mary represents here. For our purposes, it is just enough to remember that Mary was a virgin. Because the constellation Virgo is represents a virgin.

Is what we are talking about astrology? No. Absolutely not! We are not doing anything that remotely looks like what astrologers do. We are just looking for what Scripture is telling us to find as a sign of Jesus’ return. But if you doubt whether God intended the stars, moon, and sun to serve as signs for prophecy, please read this article entitled: Does God Intend for us to Watch the “Signs in the Heavens?”

The constellations have been a part of human symbolism since ancient times. And God knew they would still be around by the time Jesus returned. So, it is no wonder that He might choose such longstanding symbols to become a part of end times prophecy.

There are several remarkable things about this alignment of stars, sun, and moon that make this event an even more convincing “sign in the heavens” than it already is. First of all, in this prophecy Jesus is the baby. Jesus is the “King of kings” who is now sitting on His throne in Heaven awaiting the time when He may come set up His Kingdom on Earth for 1,000 years. These references to His royalty will be even more significant when trying to understand this sign after you understand that there is something called the King Planet (Jupiter), the King Star (Regulus), and the King Constellation (Leo, the Lion).

Some have discovered that the story of the Gospel is played out in the constellations, with, for example Leo the Lion constellation representing Jesus, who is said to be “the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.” During the middle ages, the Church decided to make the constellation Virgo represent the Virgin Mary. When you look at the Zodiac and the other constellations that way, they begin to tell a story.

Now, with all of that information in hand, we are now better equipped to understand this alignment of heavenly bodies to take place in 2017, as follows:

  • As mentioned earlier, the constellation Virgo is a virgin like Mary. Besides Mary, though, we must also have a crown of twelve stars above her head.
    • The “King Constellation” Leo forms nine of the twelve stars in her crown.
    • Regulus, the “King Star,” is one of three other heavenly bodies that arrive on the scene on this date which are needed to make up the rest of the twelve stars in this prophecy.
  • The royal “baby” to be born from Virgo’s womb is the planet Jupiter; aka the “King Planet.”
    • Jupiter leaves Virgo’s womb on September 23, 2017.
    • Most remarkably, Jupiter literally stays in Virgo’s womb 42 weeks.
      • This is the exact number of weeks for human gestation in the womb!
      • This happens through a scientific phenomenon known to cosmologists as retrograde.
revelation 12

You can see how Jupiter is inside the womb of Virgo for 42 weeks and how this moves around at various stages of “retrograd” (take a look at the actual constellation, not the artwork. The real constellation is off kilter from the artwork superimposed over top.


The discovery of this “sign” in the heavens does not mean anyone is actually setting a date for Christ’s return. It just means, like other cosmological events such as the biblical blood moon tetrad and the arrival of the Star of Bethlehem, it serves as a harbinger to announce to all of us that the time is near.

However, there are several things that I find interesting about this timing. This alignment of heavenly bodies takes place almost 70 years after Israel became a nation again in modern history.

Why is this significant?

Well, we know that Jesus said the generation that was around when Israel became a nation again would see His return.

So, how long is a typical lifetime? About 70 years! According to Psalm 90:10

The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.

Could this sign serve as an alarm to wake the world up before Christ’s return? According to Scripture it is.

Some biblical scholars say this that Revelation 12 is the middle point of the tribulation. If that is true, then we might be able to do some approximate date setting. We are told we cannot know the day and the hour of Jesus’ return, but He did say we could read the signs. So let’s read them!

Since we have a date for this heavenly sign to appear in the skies, we might as well calculate the a number of days God gave to us in this chapter as follows:

 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. (Revelation 12:6)

1,260 days from September 23, 2017 is February 24, 2021. So is this the date for the end of the tribulation? If Bible scholars are right about that timing, it could be. While all that may be terribly exciting to know, what I find even more interesting is that since this sign is supposed to appear in the sky during the middle of the tribulation, let’s find out when the tribulation got started.

1,260 days prior to September 23, 2017 was April 12, 2014! Do you know what happened two days later? The first biblical blood moon tetrad! That is close enough to make the hair on the back of my neck stand up!

Blood Moons: Signs in the Heavens Point to Christ’s Return 

The date for this sign to show in the heavens is a very special date on the Jewish calendar. It is called Shabbat Shuva or “Sabbath of Returning.” This is the Sabbath day that falls between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur which is meant to represent how we can reconnect with God through repentance.

Are you ready for the return of our Lord? Have you repented from your sins and drawn closer to your fast approaching Bridegroom? For more posts on a similar topic check out the following article:

Blood Moons: Signs in the Heavens Point to Christ’s Return

October 22, 2015

As the Spirit [Holy Spirit] and the Bride [the Church] say “Come!” as they call for the lost to find their way home before its too late, the signs of Christ’s return are accelerating on every front; in world politics and through the increased “birth pangs” (earthquakes, climate change, wars). There are even amazing signs in the heavens signaling the time is near if not right upon us.

These signs are meant to energize the Church to bring in the final harvest, not a time to be passive by hiding away to ride all of this out. The signs are meant to help the Church sound the alarm to those who have not found their way back home to point the way. 

Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. (Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17)


Recently, the world witnessed a very rare thing. From April 2014 to September 2015 we experienced what is being referred to as a bibilcal blood moon tetrad. Blood moons are lunar eclipses that typically happen about every 18 months. These, alone, aren’t very rare events.

The Moon glows orange as it is seen above the Dome of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem's Old City, during a total eclipse early Thursday, Feb. 21, 2008. The last total lunar eclipse until 2010 occurred Wednesday night, with cameo appearances by Saturn and the bright star Regulus on either side of the veiled full moon. (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)

However, a blood moon tetrad (tetrad means four) is where FOUR lunar eclipses happen over the same 18 month time period. This is very rare. Over the past 2,000 years, for example, blood moons tetrads have only happened about 64 times. However, there is a similar phenomenon that is even rarer still. That is when each of these cosmological events lands on Jewish or biblical feast days/holidays. That is what we just went through. This tetrad is distinct from the others due to its association with the feasts so it is referred to as a BIBLICAL blood moon tetrad.

Blood Moons

As you can see, the most recent of these began on Passover, April 14, 2014 and ended during the Feast of Tabernacles (or Sukkot), September 28, 2015. There was also one full solar eclipse during that spring of 2015 then a partial eclipse on Rosh Hashana later that fall. Remarkably, each of these fell on the two dates that mark the Jewish New Years (civil and religious new years).

There have only been 7 events like this in the last 2,000 years. The next one does not occur for another 400 years. So, yes, these are very rare, indeed.

“Sure, that may be pretty cool,” you might say. “But, so what?!? What, if anything at all, does this mean?”

Like all good Christians who trust the Bible to be God’s final word on any subject, we must check on what God might have to say about signs in the heavens and blood moons. If after reading this article you aren’t convinced, please refer to another article on my blog on this topic for a more in depth study on the signs in the heavens: Does God Intend for us to Watch the “Signs in the Heavens?” However, to learn about these fascinating blood moons, stay with me here for a while.

Besides the remarkable fact that these solar and lunar eclipses fell on Jewish feast days, we are also able to discover that lunar eclipses (blood moons) and solar eclipses are also meant to serve as signs before what is referred to as “The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord” from in Joel 2:30-31:

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord.

Of course because blood moons and solar eclipses are so common, we can infer that there had to be something more significant about these events for them to qualify as true signs of the end times, right? Rare groupings of multiple eclipses may be remarkable, but not distinctive enough in an of themselves because with 64 tetrads, there are just too many of them. But the fact that each of the lunar and solar eclipses during seven tetrads each land on Jewish holidays is quite significant, especially when you consider what happened to the nation of Israel and the Church during each of those tetrads.

But first, before I get to the “punch line,” so-to-speak, by revealing those exciting facts to you, let me do something for those who are sticklers for Scripture and for those who may not understand the significance of Jewish holidays for Christians.

Let’s back track just a bit.

Christians unable to recognize the significance of Jewish holidays may want to know that these were the same feasts and holidays that Jesus celebrated. As a matter of fact, the Protestants celebrate an abbreviated version of the Passover meal (i.e., the “Lord’s Supper”) during what they call Communion (bread/wine). Catholics do the same through the Eucharist.

Jesus fulfilled the Passover when He offered His Blood up to save humanity by becoming the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” The apostle, John, was referring to the blood of the lamb that the Hebrew slaves (Jews are Hebrew) had to spread over their doorposts on that first Passover in Israel’s ancient history during their time spent in Egypt.

The lamb’s blood was put there as a mark or a signal to the death angel to make sure that the final plague God sent on the land of Egypt did not harm God’s children, the Hebrews (i.e., Jews and Israelites). The angel of death was going to take the first born member of every Egyptian family and animal flock to prove to Pharaoh that of God’s hand was at work on behalf of these slaves. God wanted His people to be set free from slavery so they could return to their homeland, Israel.

Now the entire story about the Passover is important for all Christians to remember for several reasons; most of which I won’t get into here. Through the story of Moses and the Exodus we are better able to understand the following:

  • Who Jesus was as “the Lamb of God;”
  • Why a blood sacrifice is required to avert death in hell;
  • The significance of Israel in the Christian walk;
  • The significance of Israel in the timing of Christ’s return.

It will only be this last point that we will cover in this discussion on the heavenly signs of the end. Regarding the rest, it is enough to know that the lamb’s blood was to serve as a prophetic sign to Israel of who their Messiah would be.

  • That He would be like an innocent lamb led to the slaughter.
  • His Blood would be required to pay off our debt of sin.
  • Consequently, our souls would be marked so that the “death angel,” who is meant to take us to Hell will “pass over” us and allow us passage into Heaven instead.


The Star of Bethlehem was a sign in the heavens that showed up when Jesus came to Earth as a baby. This star features prominently in every Christmas pageant, book, or manger scene during this holiday.

Well, what do you know? That star just showed up again for the first time in 2,000 years on June 30, 2015! This has to make people wonder why.

Well, in Luke 21:25-28 after Jesus described to his disciples what the signs on the earth would appear before His return, He also described the signs to appear in the heavens, as follows (my notes are in brackets):

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars… [He describes many troubling signs in the world that will also coincide with these cosmological signs]. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.

Here is another translation of that last verse: “When these things start to happen, stand up and hold your heads high; because you are about to be liberated!” Now, let’s examine the two of the biggest things that had to “come to pass” in Bible prophecy before Jesus could return.

  • First, Israel had to become a nation one final time: See Isaiah 43:5-6, Jeremiah 30:1-21:30, Amos 9:14-15, Luke 21:32. When did this happen?
    • Prophetic Fulfillment in 1948: Israel becomes a nation again after almost 2,000 years!
    • No other people group has retained their ethnic identity beyond about 200-300 years after losing their homeland.
  • Second, Jerusalem had to be returned to Jewish/Israeli control: “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Luke 21:24
    • Prophetic Fulfillment in 1967: Jerusalem was no longer in Gentile hands (anyone who is not a Jew is a Gentile) after Israel won the Six Days War.

The remarkable thing about all of this is that two biblical blood moon tetrads also happened simultaneously at about the same period of time! It was as if God was trying to confirm to the world that they were seeing the fulfillment of biblical prophecy in these events.

In the same verse spoken of earlier in Luke when Jesus was explaining to His disciples what the signs of His return would be, Jesus said that Israel’s return to nationhood would serve as one of those signs.

He also gave us a more specific clue as to the timing this event would happen. He said once Israel was a nation again, the generation alive at that time would live to see His return.

Based upon this fact, alone, we know the time is near. But when you combine all of this with the sign of the Star of Bethlehem showing up in the sky in 2015 at the precise timing of the latest biblical blood moon tetrad, one can’t help but wonder if this last blood moon tetrad was to serve as a signal to humanity of the “appointed time” of Christ’s return? The evidence I am about to share seems to be saying yes.

Let me share a couple of remarkable things about the biblical blood moon tetrads.

  • Besides falling on biblical feast days and being so rare:
    • The last three of seven blood moons tetrads have all happened within a very short period of time of one another. It was as if God was drawing our attention to this time period in History. In other words, in only the last 68 years, almost half of these biblical blood moon tetrads have occurred. Not only that, but they have happened during significant periods in Bible prophecy.
      • By doing this, it was as if God didn’t want us to miss the fact that these prophecies were being fulfilled.
      • The timing surrounding these events was significant to both the church and the Nation of Israel, as follows:
        • Biblical Blood Moon Tetrad of 1949:
          • 1st of the four blood moons to show up in this tetrad landed on Passover April 12, 1949
          • In March 1949, with very little help from any other country, Israel won its War for Independence.
          • The Jews finally had their own nation again after wandering the world homeless and persecuted for almost 2,000 years.
          • There was no single date to attribute to this but signed armistice agreements were reached on these dates so March was the date given as their victory: Egypt (Feb. 24) Lebanon (March 23), Jordan (April 3) and Syria (July 20)].
        • Biblical Blood Moon Tetrad of 1967:
          • The 1st of 4 Blood Moons landed on Passover April 1967 – Israel won its Six Day War with the Arabs on June 10, 1967.
          • They won back Jerusalem (former capital and location of Temple).

What other signs are forthcoming that point to Jesus’ return? There is another sign on its way in 2017 straight out of the book of Revelation chapter 12. To read about that one, please go to this article: Heavenly Sign from Revelation 12 to Appear during Fall 2017

Does God Intend for us to Watch the “Signs in the Heavens?”

October 22, 2015

Are there Scriptures where God says that He actually uses the sun, moon, and stars for signs? If so, what does He expect us to do when we see them?


On the fourth day of creation, God was designing/creating His divine calendar. The purpose was to teach us about His plan of redemption through Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah. At which point He said the following:

“Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years”. (Gen.1:14)

I emphasized this English word “seasons” to shed greater light on the meaning of this verse by using the original language of the Old Testament (Hebrew). In Genesis 1:14 seasons has been translated and interpreted incorrectly for centuries. This is the Hebrew word “moade or moadim” which means “an appointed time.”

In the Stone’s Edition of the Tanach, (same as the Bible’s Old Testament), Genesis 1:14 means ” …and they shall serve as signs, and for appointed times, and for days and years.” Also, in Psalm 104:9, “God appointed the moon for seasons,” the word seasons again is “moadim” which is “appointed times.” In other words, we can read it to say “God appointed the moon to determine the appointed times.”

We need to realize that these “appointed times” were set prior to the creation of any living being to align with God’s plan for redemption. God had already created a timetable for His children to meet with Him (for example, during Feasts/holidays). These appointed times serve as God’s signs for us that He is our God and we are His people. But they are also meant to point to something else; signs of Christ’s arrival on Earth, both times.


As mentioned in another article, the Star of Bethlehem was a sign in the heavens that showed up when Jesus came to Earth as a baby. This star features prominently in every Christmas pageant, book, or manger scene during this holiday. It was what the royal delegation referred to as the Three Kings, the Wise Men or the Magi used to help them make their journey from the East to discover who this Child was. They were likely Jews who already knew about these biblical prophecies who were still living in Babylon or elsewhere in the East from their time in captivity.

Well, what do you know? That star just showed up again on June 30, 2015 for the first time since the time of Jesus 2,000 years ago! This, among many other signs to show up in the heavens recently has to make people wonder why. See links to additional articles described further down the page for more detailed information about these.

So what are these signs all about?

Well, in Luke 21:25 after Jesus had just described to His disciples what the signs would look like just before His return (e.g., increasing number of wars, earthquakes, climate issues, etc…), He also described that there would also be signs to appear in the heavens, as follows (my notes are in brackets):

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars… [at this point He describes many troubling signs in the world that will also coincide with these cosmological signs]. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

In Matthew, Jesus referred to a list of specific signs that will appear in the heavens during the darkest days on Earth.

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… (Matthew 24:29-30)

The signs being described here are fairly frightening. I mean, what in the universe could cause the stars to “fall from the sky” and the “heavens to be shaken?” Besides asteroids and pole shifts, might there be something man made that could be added to this list of potential candidates? What about the immensely dangerous scientific experiments being conducted at the Hadron Collider at CERN?

Whatever the cause may be, this is not the doomsday everyone expects it to be. While it may be among Earth’s darkest days, it is not the end of the world. It signals the beginning of Jesus’ 1,000 year reign on Earth, as this verse in Luke continues (vs. 28):

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.

Here is another translation of that last verse:

When these things start to happen, stand up and hold your heads high; because you are about to be liberated!

What we can discern from these verses is that these are the signs that we are going to see at the very end of that seven-year period known as the tribulation. That is the time when Satan gets to do his worst with humanity through a false savior known as the Antichrist. The Antichrist will deceive many and will eventually begin beheading anyone unwilling to “take the mark of the beast.” Of course, Christians cannot do that because they know doing that will purchase them an instant ticket to hell. Will any Christians survive. Yes, they will. Likely only those who have strong enough faith to pray for and expect miracles. Who knows? God may even give some of them a heads up in advance to get prepared so that they do not need to do any buying and selling during that period of time.

Are there signs that will signal the beginning and the middle of the tribulation, too? Likely, yes.

We also learn from the prophet Joel in chapter two and in several places in the book of Revelation just prior to the end it is said that there will be signs appearing in the heavens. This one is speaking of the time “before the great and terrible or awesome day of the Lord.”

The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. (Joel 2:31)

This verse is obviously speaking of a special set of lunar and solar eclipses that are to show up just before the tribulation begins. Few people would see a simple solar or lunar eclipse as a sign. So there would have to be something rather special about this. Has anything special like this involving lunar and solar eclipses ever happened before? Yes, most definitely! You aren’t going to want to miss reading about an extremely rare succession of lunar and solar eclipses we just experienced in 2014-15 called the Biblical Blood Moon Tetrad:

Blood Moons: Signs in the Heavens Point to Christ’s Return


Most Bible scholars believe that the book of Revelation is in chronological order. So, with 22 chapters, one could say that chapter 12 is approximately in the middle. Consequently, this verse referring to specific signs that are to show up in the constellations, moon, and sun, should happen in the middle of the tribulation when the worst part of the tribulation begins.

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. (Revelation 12:1-4)

This sign will show up in the heavens in September 2017. Of course, I am not date setting or telling you that this is the middle of the tribulation. But it certainly looks to be possible, especially when you consider that 1,260 days earlier from this date was when the first blood moon of the tetrad happened (that is 3.5 years).

Heavenly Sign from Revelation 12 to Appear during Fall 2017


Of course, there are additional places in the Bible where other signs are spoken of. So, what should our response be to all of these recent and upcoming signs?

  • First of all, you need to prepare yourself spiritually, emotionally, and physically to endure what is to come. What might that include?
    • Building up your faith for we cannot please God without faith nor can we obtain the things we may need or ask Him for until we are able to exercise that faith.
    • Overcome the temptation to conform to this world or to be accepted by those closest to you who may be among those to persecute you in the end.
    • Find a body of believers or form a small group in your home of brothers and sisters in Christ that will encourage you when you are down and visa-versa. We are going to need one another in the difficult days ahead.
  • And secondly, get active in doing your part to bring in the final harvest. Begin building the Kingdom of God. What does that involve?
    • People are hungry to know who God is. Introduce them to Him.
    • Give your testimony of how God has changed your life.
    • Learn how to answer the “hard questions” intelligently like:
      • Those involving creation: intelligent design vs. chance.
      • Who is the true God? I.e., why not Buddhism?

Are Christians Supposed to Watch for Christ’s Return?

October 22, 2015


In the parable of the ten virgins, Jesus was describing the state of the Church before His return in the context of the Jewish wedding.


Hidden within the wedding feast we are better able to recognize who the Messiah is. We can also discover clues about His return.

Ancient Jewish Wedding

Image credit, Bill Risk. Please click on link to find owner of this image and to enjoy his teaching on the ancient Jewish wedding as it relates to our relationship with Jesus.

Why ten virgins? I have heard it said that in the Bible, the number ten represents the legal congregation. (I heard this in a Youtube video abut the Jewish wedding from Rebecca at the Well Ministries. I love these videos! I highly recommend them.) So, it makes sense that the whole Church would be represented by ten virgins.


The five wise virgins have enough oil for their lamps to proceed to the wedding feast once the Bridegroom arrives. The five foolish virgins do not.

After a Jewish couple in ancient Israel agreed to get married, the bride (symbolically and prophetically represents the Church) had to wait for her bridegroom (symbolically and prophetically represents Jesus) for an indefinite period of time. The bridegroom had to go home to his father’s house to build an addition for he and his new bride to live in once they were married. Once this structure was complete, he was to return in order to retrieve her to celebrate the wedding feast.

Before He ascended into Heaven, Jesus Christ indicated that He (like any bridegroom) must go to His Father’s house to do the same for us before He returned for His new Bride (the Church).

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

There are many references to the Church being the Bride of Christ and Jesus being the Bridegroom. You would be blessed to do a search of the word bridegroom as well as several others like, bride, husband, wife, married, marriage in For our purposes, though, I will only share a few.

Jesus very specifically referred to Himself as the Bridegroom in several of the gospels including Matthew in chapter 9 the 15th verse. He inferred that He was speaking of Himself as the Bridegroom in this parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25.

The bride and bridegroom are also familiar themes in the Old Testament particularly in the Song of Solomon and when symbolically and prophetically referring to Christ and His Bride. In Isaiah 62:5 God is referring to His affection for Israel within the context of marriage. Then prophetically, the word bridegroom is referring to the second coming of Christ in Revelation 18:23 and in Joel 2:16.


Referring to the Church as the Bride can be seen in Revelation 22:17. But first in verse 12 Jesus says,

“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

[Then] the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

The idea of the Messiah even having a Bride is described in the “The Glories of the Messiah and His Bride” in Psalm 45. We also hear of ourselves as the Church referred to as a wife Ephesians 5. God often refers to Himself as a husband and Israel as His wife.

It is within this backdrop of the Jewish wedding that many believe that there will be what is referred to as the rapture; a time when Jesus may rescue His faithful Bride from the “wrath to come” just before all hell breaks loose during the tribulation.


The the event known as the rapture was taken from a Latin word which was meant to translate the original Greek word, harpazo, in the original biblical text. This means “to snatch away.” There are several verses where this word is used. But I will share 1 Thessalonians 4:17:

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

flying people

As Christians, we should always be prepared to endure difficult times. But there is a growing body of believers who are starting to think that this teaching on the rapture is wrong. In that case, we would really need to strengthen our faith and prepare ourselves for the hard times to come. Either way, taking our clues from this parable of the ten virgins, we should still watch for our Bridegroom and make ourselves ready for Him.

Still, there are a lot of arguments in favor of the rapture.

Rapture Hidden in Jewish Wedding

I got this image from this video sermon ( or click on image to go there. The sermon speaks about the rapture hidden in the Jewish wedding (Warning: This is not an endorsement of the biblical accuracy of that video as I have not watched all of it, but I’d like to when I have some time).

Regarding this time period when the wrath of God approaches, the apostle, Paul, states in I Thessalonians 5 that we need to be ready and watching (below). It also contains another indication that we may be spared the “wrath to come:”

But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.

For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.

This article is meant to comfort you and to encourage you to be ready for His return “as a thief in the night.”

The belief is that since God did not appoint us to wrath, that we will also escape the suffering that comes onto the earth during the end-times tribulation. As indicated earlier, some evidence for this as well as more proof of the rapture may be found within this parable of the ten virgins.

In this parable, the Bridegroom, Jesus, arrives at the midnight hour. All of the virgins had been awaiting the return of the Bridegroom. They all had lamps that were lit.


We know from Scripture that the oil and fire represent the Holy Spirit. So all ten of the virgins are Christians. But only half of them taken enough oil with them in case the Bridegroom was delayed in coming. The other half had not adequately prepared themselves so they were left behind during the Wedding Supper of the Lamb.

wise and foolish virgins

Does this mean that those who are prepared will be raptured and spared from the wrath to come during the tribulation? Let’s look into this further…

The Bridegroom in this parable arrives at midnight. This is the darkest hour of the night.


We know that midnight is still many hours before daybreak. It is actually halfway between dusk and dawn. From this it might be inferred that, although the Church will see the arrival of Earth’s darkest hour, Jesus will not leave them to endure it all night long.

Wouldn’t Christ’s arrival to set up His glorious Kingdom on Earth for 1,000 years be represented by daybreak rather than the midnight hour? Midnight is halfway between night and day! His arrival at the midnight hour appears to indicate that:

  1. The Bridegroom has comes to snatch away His Bride from the wrath to come, in the middle of Earth’s darkest hour.
  2. There looks to be an interlude between the darkest hour on Earth and the setting up His Kingdom here because:
    • In the Jewish wedding tradition, the arrival of the Bridegroom, is always the start of the celebration of the feast.
      • This will be the expected “Wedding Supper of the Lamb.”
    • Half of the virgins (unprepared Christians), are going to be left behind to endure the rest of the night.

Think about it, would any bridegroom subject his beloved bride to a beating just before such a festive occasion? It doesn’t make sense! What’s more, when Jesus returns to set up His Kingdom on Earth, the saints (Bride) will be with Him.

As members of the Bride of Christ (i.e., the Church), we are taught by Jesus that we are to be like the “five wise virgins” and make ourselves prepared for His return. We don’t want to be left behind.

Parable of Wise and Foolish Virgins

Tapping into the Holy Spirit is an important, daily undertaking for every Christian. This is not a one time event. We must remain continually filled with the Spirit, as we can see from this more “true to the text” translation of Ephesians 5:18:

Stop getting drunk with wine, which leads to wild living, but keep on being filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)

Besides being left behind, we are told by Jesus in the parable of the vine and the branches found in John 15 that branches which dry out and are unfruitful in their own growth or in God’s Kingdom will be cut off and thrown in the fire because they are useless.



So, the secrets to being included in this wedding feast is to:

  • Never “burn out” of your love for God.
  • Remain full of God’s Spirit (as shared above in Eph. 5:18).
  • Be fruitful in building God’s Kingdom.
  • Bear your own spiritual fruit (see Galatians 5:20); love, forgiveness, patience, etc…
  • Walk in the Spirit.


To do this, to be full of God’s Spirit, to keep from burning out, and to grow in your spiritual fruit, we must “abide in the Vine” (see John 15) on a regular basis.


Of course, for some of us all of this is pretty easy to accomplish because the amazing love of God has been imparted into us. It is easy to do anything for one’s beloved when one is in love. For others, those who have been raised Christian or accepted Him on faith but have not had a tangible experience of His Love yet, it takes some real effort.

What’s more, it is not unusual for even those who have encountered this incredible Love to get tired after enduring a great deal of difficulty. But our trials are supposed to strengthen us, not tear us down. If they are tearing you down, then that means one of two things. One, either, there is still some pride within your heart that needs to be torn down so that the only thing left standing inside of you is your faith in God. Or two, you have never learned how to utilize the many Christian skills we are taught to take advantage of to benefit from a life lived in Christ; peace (that surpasses all understanding), joy, and righteousness in the Holy Ghost (Romans 14:17).

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. (Isaiah 26:3)

So make yourselves ready! Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. Allow His Holy Spirit through your time in worship, prayer, and study of the Scriptures as well as your time fellowshipping with other Christians encourage and comfort you so you can endure your trials.

Unity Series: The Benefits of Unity

October 13, 2015

This is a new series of articles surrounding the history behind Christian unity, where we’ve been, and where we are now. This is as much for myself as for you, because, like many others, even I am not totally convinced that this movement won’t be used by the Antichrist one day to form the end-times’ “one-world church.”


However, Jesus basically told us that the most effective strategy for world evangelism will be through Christian unity (see John 17:21-23). So, will this current movement towards unity create the conditions to help build Christ’s Kingdom or will it build the Antichrist’s church of deception? I think both are likely to be true at some point in time. In the beginning, the believers began going down this road to heed Christ’s plan to draw the world to Himself. Jesus told us that unbelievers are supposed to witness our love for each other and eventually accept Him because of that, as follows (John 17:20-23):

I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.


There is a very distinct difference between Christian unity and the ability to coexist in peace with other “opposing” world religions. This is not what Jesus was referring to. Although, there will likely be some huge benefits from Muslims coexisting with Christians and Jews, such as world peace due to the bloodshed going on in the name of Islam these days. But that is not the type of unity Christ was referring to in that scripture, above.


However, it could very well be the beginnings of the formation of the one-world church we are expecting to appear on the scene in the end. I will explain more about that in another article when I cover the potential dangers of Christian unity. But first, let me explain how beneficial Christian unity could be.

Huge Benefits of Christian Unity

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, Coming down upon the beard, Even Aaron’s beard, Coming down upon the edge of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon Coming down upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing– life forever. (Psalm 133:2-3)

Despite the potential for Christian unity to be used for evil purposes, nevertheless, the Holy Spirit has most assuredly been leading me in this direction ever since He started me down the path to teach His plan to bring accelerated transformation to the members of the Church.* He made it a point to highlight for me that unity is one of many benefits to come from this plan. In other words, unity can only be gained if hearts are healed of their identity wounds. This is what the plan presented in Accelerated Transformation seeks to do, see book to the right.

Of course, the natural fruits that are produced as a result of our personal transformation are going to gain us greater intimacy with those we care the most about. This comes to people who have gained a higher sense of security within. When I say security, I don’t mean pride or arrogance either. These can give one a false sense of security but they have no foundation. And any house that is built on sinking sand will go down during a storm.


Inner security gives us the ability to be more mature (less defensive, less self-absorbed) as well as more vulnerable and humble with others.


This sort of vulnerability and humility makes us more capable of hearing the hearts of those we are listening to (including God’s); hearing what they actually have to say. Rather than interjecting our words right on top of theirs, we give them the gift of listening.

Red plasticine heart and ear

Think about it. When was the last time someone actually listened wholeheartedly to you? It’s a rare, but very precious thing, indeed. When was the last time you listened for God to speak to you rather than filling the air with all of your own requests? There is a very good reason that He tells us to, “Be still and know I am God” (Psalm 46:10).


What will naturally arises from maturity, vulnerability, and humility will be greater unity among Christians. Because, when you come right down to it, listening to other points of view is what helps one appreciate why others are taking the stand they are taking. Only then are people able to feel “safe” enough to discuss the possibility of changing those views to match the proper interpretation of Scripture.


Opening our hearts to hear the points of view of others can build the trust needed to make progress in any discussion. Trust is built when we feel our closely held views are going to be respected and our hearts are going to be heard. This is the only way to come anywhere close to reaching some sort of consensus regarding certain controversial or contentious differences in the interpretation of Scripture.


The following is an example of the transformation process David du Plessis went through when joining the ecumenical movement. Recounting a meeting with 24 ecumenical leaders in Connecticut, this Pentecostal leader among the Charismatic movement, wrote:

I could remember days when I had wished I could have set my eyes upon such men to denounce their theology and pray the judgment of God upon them for what I considered their heresies and false doctrines. … After a few introductory words, I suddenly felt a warm glow come over me. I knew this was the Holy Spirit taking over, but what was He doing to me? Instead of the old harsh spirit of criticism and condemnation in my heart, I now felt such love and compassion for these ecclesiastical leaders that I would rather have died for them than pass sentence upon them.[1]

Du Plessis had to endure many hardships from his own denomination for his expanded point of view. They even asked him to resign from the Assemblies of God for going in this direction. It would take another thirty years for them to see the err of their ways to re-institute his ordination with them. However, he was used mightily of God to bring the baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues and all the gifts of the Spirit into the mainline churches in what would come to be known as the Charismatic Movement. He recounted how Smith Wigglesworth prophesied over him ahead of time that Du Plessis would be greatly involved God’s pouring out his Spirit upon many other churches.[2]

Monica Lewinsky: Confronting Cyberbullying and Shame

August 2, 2015


Below is a video by Monica Lewinski dealing with the price of shame and how the Internet has taken what was typically played out in a smaller community or in the news; something that, once upon a time, was here today gone tomorrow. But, with the advent of the Internet, is now publicized worldwide and kept around for the tormenting amusement of others forever. Lewinsky also talks about the big business of getting headlines and advertising dollars at the expense of others and seeks to help people think differently about it in hopes of bringing about change.

That will only happen when people stop tolerating it. But when we, ourselves, are suffering from shame, what often feels good to us is witnessing others going through the same thing, so we click on the articles/videos/images and immediately give cyberbullying more power by reinforcing it through the dollars it gains by those who promoted it. That makes us a part of the problem. What’s worse, it dulls our heart and makes us more capable of hurting others.

After watching Lewinski’s video, below, don’t forget to read the rest of this article to find out how and why it is important for all of us to change our actions as well as our attitudes and choices regarding cyberbullying.

As readers of my blog know, the toxic shame that humiliation brings to the identity creates a condition known to psychologists, sociologists, and ministers as “soul murder.” That is what numbs people and makes their “love grow cold” as Jesus predicted would happen to people as time grew closer to His return. It dehumanizes us. The buried pain of toxic false shame creates a wall around the heart that makes young people and adults capable of atrocious criminal and socially harmful acts. When one is under threat, one has a tendency to strike back at others in their effort to survive.

Did you know that our participation in cyberbullying or online shaming isn’t really that much different than our going out and shooting someone, morally speaking? Revenge for humiliation often involves murder. Well, relishing in the shame and humiliation of another is giving power to the murder of someone’s soul, as if we, ourselves, were pulling the trigger. This is why Jesus said having the thought of an adulterous act or of murdering someone isn’t any different in God’s eyes than doing it ourselves. That is because it distorts our souls when we do.

One way to stop doing something is to understand why we do it in the first place. For the same reason we choose to watch movies that show the good guy winning against the bad guy. We have suffered humiliation, shame, and betrayal so, many times, it feels good to us to watch others suffer like we have. But the thing is, we, as individuals and as a society, will not be judged by how we treated those who are rich, popular, beautiful, and powerful. We will be judged by how we treated the poor, the destitute, the needy, the infirm, and yes, even the sinner/prisoner.

Did Monica Lewinsky sin? Yes. Most certainly. She sinned against the family of President Clinton. But she is a human being. As they say, “But for the grace of God go I;” meaning, any one of us could end up in her shoes at some point in time. I can’t tell you how many judgmental people I have watched eventually lose their heads and fall into great sin… and do under the scornful eye of the public. Like on the movie, Chocolat, they are usually upstanding citizens who lived their lives pointing the finger at others. People especially love to see this happen to preachers, don’t they? It sells a lot of advertisements. What does that say about them?

The readers of this blog know that the soul murder caused by toxic shame can drive religious people to become “holier than thou.” This is the primary thing I address in this blog and in my book Accelerated Transformation: Maturity, Intimacy, and Unity through Emotional Healing. But self-righteousness did not originate with religion, but with the wounds to our hearts. So it is not the exclusive property of those in the Church.

Pride and self-righteousness is what we all do when we want to justify our existence; to restore a sense of dignity and value after having those things (and more) ripped away from us. As you may know, there are two kinds of shame, one is healthy and one is toxic. The healthy form of shame involves a behavior, choice, or action. The toxic form of shame is perceived or taken on as an identity. Both come from a feeling of exposure. The toxic form usually involves the exposure of our vulnerability, of who we are; whereas the healthy form comes from the exposure of our poor choices.

Whether that may have come from , teasing, bullying, and harsh criticism from the people that matter or from those who made that information available to them, often through betrayal, as was the case in Lewinsky’s case; the effect is devastating and quite often ends in the suicide of the individual.

The apostle, Peter, said, “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins” (I Peter 4:8). Does that mean we don’t deal with sin? No. But we do need to preserve human dignity in the process.

There is something basic to humanity that we have forgotten how to do. When we do something wrong, we acknowledge it and try to make it right. Then we forgive and let the offender grow from the experience.

What matters about wrong doing isn’t that you have broken some sort of rules, but that you have harmed someone. When you harm someone you create needs. We have an obligation to try to make it right the best that we can. Name the wrongs done. Address the harms that resulted from them. Take responsibility the best we can. And make amends.

All human experiences should be redemptive in nature. We are all here to grow and transform. The Native Americans say, we were born to learn how to “become human.” I like that. I believe it is true. God made humanity in His Image, which is Love. We came to learn how to love. But sadly, many hearts are born among very shaming environments. This should not be tolerated. It creates cold, and inhuman hearts subject to doing harm to others. Our society has become that sort of environment and only you and I have the power to change it.

Why Intelligent Design should be Okay to Teach in Public Schools

July 31, 2015

In 2005, a Dover, Pennsylvania court ruled that Intelligent Design could not be taught in public schools along side the Theory of Evolution simply because we have a constitution that says the U.S. Government cannot promote a particular religious point of view. Never mind whether that point of view is the truth or not. It just can’t be taught, regardless.


Are people really SO blind that they would rather have their children continue to be taught a lie above the truth simply because it isn’t politically correct? LUDICROUS. So, Intelligent Design, a fact that has more scientific support than the Theory of Evolution, is not allowed to be taught simply on that basis. (Of course, we all know that any teacher can get around that by having students do reports on controversial court cases involving science and presenting that as the argument he/she wants students to study. I was able to do that while simultaneously teaching about our constitution and religious freedom. But not every teacher is smart enough or brave enough to do so.)

But, I think it is important for all Americans to take a closer look at how that court decision has hurt our students. It has brought about state-sponsored censorship. Remember book burning? This isn’t the former Soviet Union or Hitler’s Nazi Regime. This is the United States of American. And as such it cannot limit the freedoms of Americans by restricting their access to knowledge or alternative points of view.

Intelligent Design is not spurious. It is a viable alternative which provides scientific and mathematical proof in its favor. It interferes with the idea that is the very foundation of evolution; that life arose from nothing by chance. That idea has finally been completely debunked by math and science. So, the only alternative left is Intelligent Design.

One cannot say that the United States Government would have to promote a religion by allowing it to be taught because no one is giving a name to who that intelligence created us is, be he/she/it alien or some other god besides the Christian god, but the fact is, the discussion is finally over. Life in the universe could never have arisen by chance.

Unfortunately, if you don’t hire a lawyer who is capable of arguing such a case, you will lose. The issues at stake are as follows:

  • Truth is not allowed to be taught to school children simply because it is politically incorrect (i.e., it may have a possible attachment to a god or intelligence)? So, what is the alternative? To teach our children a lie?
  • Does that mean science has no interest in the truth, only the atheistic version of truth? Isn’t that the same thing as a state-sponsored religious viewpoint? Ah ha! Why doesn’t someone sue the state for forcing their children to follow its state-sponsored religion when another alternative exists?

Every lawyer knows that going to court is never about arriving at the truth, but its about who has the best lawyer. I hate to sound arrogant, but when truth is on your side, it sort of sounds like you are.

Someone knows a really gifted lawyer who can get a hold of these two thoughts in order to arrive at a way to defeat the errors being taught to our children. One way to do so is to present how the US Government has been forcing public children to swallow an unproven, religious point of view of atheists. We need lawyers who can fight for truth, no matter what package it comes in. Truth is truth, period.
