Before the Eclipse, the Sign

Psalm 19:1-6
The heavens declare the glory of God; 
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;  
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words; 
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, 
their words to the ends of the world.
    In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; 
nothing is deprived of its warmth.

On August 21 a total eclipse occurred in the USA which many interpreted as a sign of God's coming judgment on America. This is the historical response of mankind to solar eclipses. The Babylonians - who were fairly accurate at predicting eclipses as early as 1375 BCE - and the ancient Chinese believed an eclipse was a bad omen for their kings. They even took steps to seat a temporary king to face the anticipated anger of 'the gods'.

There is a storied history surrounding solar eclipses, but there is also a history of major scientific breakthroughs.  Albert Einstein theorized the existence of gravitational waves more than a century ago. Last summer, a good five days before the total eclipse passed from west to east across the US, international scientists observed an astronomical  marvel that took place 130 million years ago. More than 70 labs and telescopes across the world witnessed what happened when two neutron stars locked into gravitational sync with each other, circling round and round until at last they collided and merged together as one. When that merge occurred, it released  energy that spread outward throughout the universe.

On Aug. 17, 2017 those signals reached Earth — and sparked an astronomy revolution.  Scientists  are calling this discovery so profound that it has created a new era in space research which they are calling "MultiMesseger Astrophysics".  Through spiritual eyes, NASA's video depiction of this "multi-messenger" event speaks  strongly of the power that will be released when God's plan in Yeshua is fully realized.  Jew and Gentile in Him are already locked into a 'gravitational pull' to be made one in Messiah. When we at last collide, merging as one in Him, the spiritual energy from our impact will radiate outward throughout our world in the greatest revival the world has seen. 

True science will speak not only to the existence of our Creator, but also to His plans for mankind. This is an even greater spiritual sign and message than any which have been claimed regarding the solar eclipse. God knows the end from the beginning.

Scientists speaking to the Times of Israel also noted that the colliding stars confirmed another discovery to them, "We see the gold being formed."

Such a great post! I would like to know what version the text is taken from. It is so clear. Thank you!

This is the NIVersion, Judy. When I'm looking up a keyword or a specific scripture, I usually google it and then click to to see how various translations word it. I look for the one that resonates the most with my spirit in the wording. Thanks for commenting!
