"The Wedding Band Eclipse and our soon removal"

On May 20, this year, there will be what astronomers call “an annular eclipse of the sun”.  This occurs when the moon blots out the sun, but not totally as in a total eclipse.  It is very rare and has not occurred in a couple hundred years.  It is called colloquially “the wedding ring” eclipse.  This is because the moon does not totally blot out the sun but is nevertheless dead center of it.  The appearance is a fiery wedding band in the heavens.

 

The book of Acts (of the Church) has in chapter 2 the very beginning of the Church of Jesus Christ.  Born on Pentecost Sunday, when flames of fire came with a mighty rushing wind and stood on the heads of 120 people gathered in a room, it soon caused these to preach to the crowds in Jerusalem that very hour.  The Apostle Peter delivered the sermon recorded in Acts 2 and every person heard it in his or her own language.  It was a mighty miracle which caused 3,000 people to accept it and the Christian Church was born.

 

In Acts 2 beginning at verse 17, Peter tells the crowd that Joel’s prophecy was being fulfilled in their ears.  Then LOOKING DOWN THE CORRIDORS OF TIME TO THE VERY TIME IN WHICH WE LIVE, Peter said, “your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy: 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 (the color of) BLOOD, BEFORE THAT GREAT AND NOTABLE DAY OF THE LORD COME;  And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Acts 2:17-21 KJV).

 

Beloved brothers and sisters, just before the great tribulation, that great and notable Day of the Lord comes, and there will be a “wedding band” event that will darken the sun while at the very same time, deeply reddening the moon.  To those ready for the rapture, it is a wedding band presented by our Savior, I think.  For those not ready, it is the sign Peter gave that the Day of darkness, gloominess, terrible fear, etc has come.  Jesus knows His sheep, and His sheep hear His voice, so listen, if you know Him.  He is coming again and the time apparently is NOW. 

 

What more can be said?  Prepare your hearts to meet our Savior.  Surely He is right at the door.  May 20th is coming quickly.  It is followed by May 26/27, Pentecost, very high watch day.

 

“When ye shall see all these things come to pass, know that it*** is near, even at the doors”, said Jesus Christ.

 

***What is “It”?  It is the rapture event, separating the virgins with oil from the virgins without oil.  Oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit, thus when the announcement came (as it is coming now), those ready with lamps having oil arose along with those whose lamps were lacking oil.  What is the difference in the two groups?  They both arrive at the “hotel” where the Bride’s chamber is.  So what is the difference?  It is that those with oil ENTERED, while those without oil COULD NOT ENTER because the Bridegroom said “I do not know you”. 

 

These are not left behind to suffer the great tribulation woes, but they have no part of the Bride either.  What is going to happen to them?  I think they go away from the Bridal chamber door to serve in the temple in heaven, never, ever to be part of the Bride.  What loss.

 

Thus, all saved go to heaven, not all saved are part of the Bride of Christ.  Only those who kept His commandments and were therefore found worthy at the rapture event can be part of that exclusive group.

 

Agree or disagree, still please, brothers and sisters, do what you can to make your own election sure.  Time is flat running out.

 

Maranatha
