"Wondering if these things are signs of the soon coming rapture?"

Justify wins 2018 Kentucky Derby – full results list

"Justify won the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday . . ."  

144 is 12 x 12 plus it is mentioned in Revelation with the 144,000 witnesses; the number has biblical significance.  
Also the horse's name, Justify, makes me think of the rapture.  The rapture has been referred to as the "rapture of the overcomers".  I think of the word "justify" as associated with Luke 21:36:

Luke 21:36 New King James Version (NKJV)

36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Here is a definition of justify from the dictionary online:  "a to judge, regard, or treat as righteous and worthy of salvation
  • God justifies with his forgiveness and grace the man who comes to him
  •  —Will Herberg"

Then I got to thinking, I wonder when the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be.  Sure enough,
it is next weekend, Pentecost weekend, a high watch time for the rapture.  

"When is the big day and who is planning it?

The wedding is next weekend - Saturday, May 19 - at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened."
