It should be glaringly apparent that the Middle East is now witnessing a throttled-up fulfillment of Christ’s warning on martyrdom –
These things have I spoken to you, that you may not be scandalized. They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God. And these things will they do to you; because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things I have told you, that when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. But I told you not these things from the beginning, because I was with you.
– John 16:1-5
In a recent post, I also noted the practicality of taking words in context when recalling certain Biblcal passages. I considered Jesus’ location – the Middle East – when He questioned whether there would be any faith left in the land upon His return. In that post, I made the case that He was literally referring to the Middle East. While many seem to believe He was referring to the entire world, the word ‘terra’ actually translates to ‘land.’ So, as Christians flee the Middle East and Churches are either destroyed or, due to threats of terror, not holding services, the context seems quite clear and likely very literal.
Soooo, perhaps I’ve made the case that we are much farther down the prophetic timeline than most people would dare believe…
As I noted in my e-book, ‘Signs in the Heavens – Distress of Nations,’ there are many current celestial events which apear to be pointing to major prophetic and apocalyptic Scriptural fulfillments.
The next major ‘sign in the sky’ will climax on 7/1/2015. And for various reasons, I’m linking that celestial event to a certain Scriptural passage. My main reason for doing so involves several elements – the major conjunction of the two planets (Jupiter – the king planet and Venus – the mother planet), the location of the event (in front of the lion comstellation), and the apparent emphasis of the number 7 (in Scripture 7 symbolizes completeness).
First, take a look at the conjunction on 7/1 –
* ‘Skywalk’ app
After extrapolating on the previously mentioned elements involved in this event, and Jupiter’s very prolonged position infront of the lion comstellation (late 2014 and 2015), I’d like to specifically note this Scripture which leads into the ‘7 Seals’ in its following chapters –
And as if this wasn’t enough of a conspicuous ‘look up’ moment, Mars – the planet long associated with war – will join Jupiter and Venus climaxing in a triad under the constellation during October of 2015.
And, of course, there’s the September Shemitah while all this activity is going on under the lion….
Something’s up folks, literally!
