The first blood moon on Passover 2014 was April 14, 2014. The Sept 23 sign marked the last day of one half of a seven year cycle beginning with the first blood moon. Could it be that Trump will lose the election in 2020, and 40 days and one week after the new president is inaugurated (March 7, 2021, the end of the 7 years), all hell will break loose? Were the celestial signs markers of a symbolic "tribulation period", the first half of which was marked by signs from God in nature, and the second half of which has been marked by the specter and chaos of Godless leaders threatening to take control? Has God been trying to show us something that we've all missed?
If I make the 23rd inclusive it gets you to 1259 days...as close as you can get...and some say the sign was more "perfect" on the 24th. It is quite interesting, and I also have been thinking the sign was a marker to count from, but have been clueless as what to count and for how long. You may be on to something.
fitz - same here, just haven't been very vocal because I can't see what it points to (specifically). What I am confident of is it was a marker. Just like the Bethlehem Star indicated the King was born, this too has significance. I rewind in my mind and see those waiting for that sign to occur. What did they study? What did they read, pick apart and try to understand? Did they know Daniel 9 and understand this (King) was coming? We know He's coming and it is soon
Jude (ESV) - 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
Interesting thought Bleever. Some have toyed with the idea of seven "good years" before the seven bad years of the Tribulation, to echo the 7 years of plenty / 7 years of famine in Joseph's day. I know Matt P. at The Daily Crow had similar thoughts.
Like you all, I also haven't been able to find how 9/23/17 points to something specific in terms of timing, but I do think the sign itself very clearly portrays 1. the nearness of Jacob's Trouble, and 2. the nearness of the rapture. I think that's what the sign was for.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."

bernie: EW, sounds like Daniel's time, times, and half a time.

EnochWalked: bernie: Right, that's what struck me too. And thank you Jaq for sharing the link. I wonder if anything else is coinciding with this fateful day of the year.

yardstick: "...commemorating God’s testing of Abraham by commanding him to sacrifice his son Ishmael..." It was ISAAC whom Abraham was commanded to sacrifice... Ishamael was long gone before that...

bora: Is "foxes over the temple mount" metaphorical or literal; perhaps both. Where was that located?
Aug 13, 2019 22:28:28 GMT -6
bora: Yes. I see that it is in the Talmud, that to me represents man's doctrines that are binding upon God. In contrast, the Torah is God's doctrines that are binding upon man.

EnochWalked: "WARNING: VIDEO MAY BE DISTURBING". Yes, indeed, for many reasons. Elon has helped produce some great tech, but people shouldn't be showing such eagerness to have his machines and AI merge themselves with our bodies and minds.

bernie: fitz, EW: I think a lot of people will be as willing and excited as the gal in the video. And some of the other things they want to do in the Transhumanism movement are even creeper. Things are changing very quickly.

Joecool: I think they will make it a thing of convenience like when paying for stuff, imagine going into a store and just walking out with stuff you need, while scanner gets chip in your arm. Or not having to carry a wallet around

EnochWalked: Joe: Amazon is already one step ahead of you. Their new store only requires that you tap your phone as you enter to identify yourself (and your Amazon account), then their cameras follow you around and work out what you pick off the shelves. No implant.
