A lot of people think God's heavenly signs before the Apocalypse are eclipses, since the Bible spells out "the sun will be like sackcloth and the moon will not give its light." (Isa. 13:10, Eze. 32:7, Matt. 24:29, Rev. 6:12). And I agree with that.
But I also believe there can be other signs in the heavens we may miss or DISmiss.
Such as the sun ramping up it's 11 year solar cycle at the same time earthquakes, strange weather, animal die-offs, and uprisings in the Middle East are going on. Are the X-Class flares (the largest the sun produces, by the way) meant to get our attention? We had an X-Class flare headed our way in February, and now another one just today. But the sun goes through its cycles, so perhaps there's nothing to see here.
Interestingly enough, on March 19th, we're going to have what the media is calling an "Extreme SuperMoon". What does that mean? It means the moon is going to be HUGE in the sky on that day, as it will be approximately 225,000 miles from Earth, the closest it gets.
Some people believe it might ramp up the craziness of weather and earthquakes and volcanic activity and ocean tides. Others believe it might not be as bad as everyone is making it out to be. Only time will tell.
And remember last year when Jupiter lost one of its atmosphere bands?
That was weird.
What about the possibility of Betelgeuse in the Orion constellation about to go supernova this year or next? Or Comet Elenin that's supposed to do a very close drive-by of Earth in Sept/Oct.?
Perhaps all these things are coincidence. Unless something major and obvious happens in the skies, I guess we won't know for sure. We always have eclipses, how can we know for sure that such-and-such eclipse is The One Christ and the prophets spoke of...? Perhaps because it happens at the very same time as the other signs?
These phenomena is by no means "proof" of Jesus' coming, however it is indeed compelling for those of us who are looking up.
