I personally believe that the EXTREMELY RARE Sunset “Wedding Ring” Annular Eclipse (as pictured below) on the West Coast of May 20th may end up being a seven day warning of a Pentecost May 26 / 27 Rapture. However, could MORE than just this eclipse be scheduled by God for May 20th? This post will outline reasons why this possibly could be the case!!
Indeed, the following will present some Biblical reasons for this being a possibility. In specific, let us look to the Book of Revelation when I ask the following question:
Could Revelation 6:12-17, 7:9 (7 verses) represent a May 20 - May 26 / 27 Noah Seven Day Warning (also 7 days inclusive or simply 7 days, same as the number of applicable verses)?
In other words, what IF the Sixth Seal actually represents the Rapture Event, the next event on the prophetic calendar? WHAT IF the Sixth Seal ends up actually being broken on May 20th, culminating in the Rapture occurring, AFTER a six or seven day delay, on Pentecost May 26 / 27?
While one may commonly expect the results of the breaking of the Seal to manifest instantly, is this always the case? I believe that it doesn’t HAVE to be. For the purposes of this illustration, let us compare a Tribulation Seal to a large hydro dam, and the eventual consequences of that Seal being broken, to a town 150 miles down stream from the dam.
If this dam were to suddenly collapse (the Seal broken) would the town instantly be destroyed (Rapture / Sudden Destruction)? NO!! The town will be destroyed once the water reaches it, but the water still has to take a little bit of time to travel before it gets to the town. In other words, there is still some delay, meaning a short last warning is possible. This means there is still some possibility of escape, a hope that remains until the water finally, but inevitably, reaches the town.
The verses that apply, with respect to the Sixth Seal, are as follows (from the Book of Revelation):
6:12: And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
6:13: And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
6:14: And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
6:15: And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
6:16: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
6:17: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
7:9: After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Could the Great Earthquake (the LARGEST Slip EQ in RECORDED HISTORY) of April 11, 2012 have actually been this Seal being opened? Could we already be in a 40 day delay to the May 20th Sunset Annular Eclipse, finally ending 7 days later with a Pentecost Rapture? While this is a possibility, the next paragraph outlines a different possibility.
Could Revelation 6:12 be referring to the May 20th Sunset Annular Eclipse JUST BEFORE THE RAPTURE, PERHAPS on Pentecost 2012 (May 26 / 27)??? COULD there be ANOTHER “Great Earthquake”, in addition to the Great Earthquake that occurred on April 11th, that occurs on this EXACT same day, May 20th???
More specifically, could there end up being a “Great Earthquake” (with a resulting Tsunami?), perhaps even on the West Coast itself, on May 20th, in order to serve as a “Noah-Type” Final Seven day warning? Perhaps even with a possible resulting Tsunami as a type of "Noah's Flood", but obviously on a MUCH smaller scale (symbolic)??
After all, is there a reason why such an extremely rare Sunset Annular Eclipse is taking place on the West Coast of all places? If you recall, this is the EXACT place Ron and I have outlined MANY times in the past as the most likely place that the NWO will strike with there Sudden Destruction!! For example, the missile launch scare occurred just off the California Coast (also at Sunset!!). In addition, the songs played after both of the National Emergency Tests we about CALIFORNIA!! Based on all of the “subtle but significant hints” the NWO have given for this location being on their radar, on so many occasions in the past, can we REALLY exclude this as a possibility??
So exactly what am I trying to say? What I am trying to say is that I will find it EXTREMELY telling IF we were to have another “Great Earthquake”, besides the two MASSIVE SLIP QUAKES that occurred on April 11th, on May 20th!! This will be even more telling if it is on the West Coast AND "just happens" to occur on the same day as the EXTREMELY RARE Sunset Annular Eclipse of May 20th, especially if a Tsunami results!!
Just imagine how many extra people would be gathered on the West Coast in order to see this heavenly spectacle, increasing the potential devastation of such an event should a Tsunami result. Yes, this would be a tragedy and an extremely sad even!! HOWEVER, God will ALWAYS turn this world’s bad into His divine good (don’t ask me how, but He somehow does)!! This could result in MANY more souls being save when viewed in an eternal context.
Indeed, wouldn't this type of event surely result in quite an amazing 7 day warning witnessing tool should such a horrible tragedy occur?! This would certainly give us a VERY tangible events to point to as we continue our witness to the lost during the ensuing last few days before the Rapture that could very well follow shortly thereafter (perhaps on Pentecost?)!!
IF another such “Great Earthquake” were to occur on May 20th, this would certainly fit in perfectly as a 7 day warning, JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH!! Sadly, we would STILL be mostly ignored by the lost in our subsequent warnings, ALSO JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH. NONETHELESS, PERHAPS some would actually listen and "get into the ark" before it was too late!!
Anyways, this was just a thought I wanted to share with you all. I just find it VERY interesting that Revelation 6:12 has wording almost IDENTICAL to Acts 2:20, which reads “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come." As per the previous quote, this is obviously very similar to Revelation 6:12, which reads "and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood".
What are the chances of all this lining up like this so perfectly with the soon Pentecost 2012? Yes, I see the complete irony of “MathMan” posing this particular questionJ!!
IMPORTANT: Please note that I fully acknowledge that the Sunset Annular Eclipse could end up being a trial run for a GLOBAL darkening of the Sun, reddening of the Moon, both to be caused supernaturally just before the Rapture AT SOME OTHER DATE OTHER THAN PENTECOST 2012!! HOWEVER, IF we have an Great Earthquake on the EXACT same day as the May 20th Sunset Annular Eclipse, ESPECIALLY if the EQ is also on the West Coast and causes a Tsunami, I will personally strongly believe that THIS will be an EXTREMELY EXPLICIT AND MERCIFUL FINAL SEVEN DAY INCLUSIVE WARNING sent from the Lord pointing to a possible Pentecost 2012 Rapture!! As mentioned above, even in tragedy, we serve a Lord that explicitly promises to make everything that happens that appears bad TO US, the finite, to eventually work for His ultimate good, the infinite!!
SIDE NOTE: After I wrote the above, I noticed that Gerry Almond had written something similar:
"10. It was at Pentecost that Peter declared the fulfillment of Joel 2. In his conclusion, he prophesied not only this event but looking over centuries of time said this about the very day in which we now live “And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath: blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come; and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”. (Acts 2:19-21 KJV). Perhaps the so-called “wedding band” eclipse of May 20 is the event Peter spoke about. It darkens the sun while at the same time it turns the moon black/red, the color of dead men’s blood. Fitting for the age in which we live. At the same time, blood, fire and vapor of smoke denotes destruction by war or other means such as massive earthquakes?"
Interestingly, in a separate email sent later, Gerry pointed out to me that there is EXACTLY 40 days inclusive from the previous Great Earthquake on April 11th to May 20th. As most of you know, 40 days is a VERY common period of judgment in the Bible.
Could this be yet another indicator that May 20th may end up being a significant date to watch? We already know that the West Coast will be experiencing an extremely rare Sunset Annular Eclipse, which would already be a sufficient indicator. However, will there be more? We will only have 10 more days before we find out!!
* * * * * * *
CONCLUSION: If we see a “Great Earthquake” occur on May 20th, especially if the EQ occurs on the West Coast, this will MOST LIKELY be a huge sign pointing towards a Pentecost May 26 / 27 Rapture!! I have personally considered Gerry's post on Five Doves, as quoted above, as a "Second Witness" to this event being a very real possibility (Ron actually ended up writing something similar to us as well, again not knowing that we had also wrote this). Should this Great Earthquake indeed occur, will this cause someone to finally "call on the name of the Lord" to be saved (as per Acts 2:21) and enter the ark JUST BEFORE the Rapture / Sudden Destruction / Great Tribulation suddenly strikes this slumbering world? We will soon find out!! Regardless, even without a Great Earthquake, the Sunset Annular Eclipse on May 20th is, on its own, a HUGE sign.
Doves, it is becoming increasingly obvious that our time on earth is RAPIDLY running out. Make sure you draw as close as possible to the Lord during these trying times!! Pray that you are counted worthy to escape all of these things and are not caught at the time of the Rapture being worldly (as warned by Jesus Himself!!).
MARANATHA!! May the peace that only Christ can give be with you all!!
