    There are a wide array of opinions and interpretations as to what the Lord is saying to us with the Rev 12 sign in the heavens coming just a few shorts months from now in September. Regardless of what your thoughts are, if you believe this sign has ANY significance at all, then I think you will find this video fascinating. I certainly did.

    There are a number of new pieces of information that I had not encountered in all of the previous articles and videos I have read or watched. Would be interested to hear the thoughts of those of who take the time to view it.

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

    I will agree that it is interesting, I am not one who studies astronomy, so most of this is pretty Greek to me.
    I am not putting a ton of weight on this though because of a couple of reasons…how would those without any ability to access this information be aware of it or be able to make the same assumptions? I still am feeling that signs are for the Jewish nation and not for the church.
    I was also concerned about his connection of 9/11 to Jesus birth and also the day of the terror attacks?? the Gregorian calendar wasn’t started until the late 1500’s so there was no September around the time of Jesus’ birth, and I have also read upon the reason that that terrorists chose that day is because of a sound defeat of the ottoman empire.. :scratch:
    September 11 would really not have much to do with Jesus, maybe somewhat with the Jews because it was Rosh Hashanah. So right off the bat he kind of lost a wee bit of credibility in making those definitive associations with 9/11, and unfortunately once that happens I am a bit suspect of the other things that are proposed.
    But of course, I could be wrong…but for some reason, I, personally don’t feel led to really look into this sign in the fall :rose:

    "and all creation sing with me now, lift up your voice and lay your burdens down...let all of creation sing with me now fill up the heavens let HIs glory resound, and every knee will bow, oh in every tongue praise the Father, praise the Son and the Spirit in One!!"

    According to this Mark Correll guy, Jupiter represents God the Father. Most of us by now, have understood, having to do with the Revelation 12 sign, that Jupiter represents Jesus, who is not God the Father, but God the Son. And then Mark Correll says that Venus represents Jesus. Well, he DID give the place in the Bible that Venus DOES represent Jesus. Interesting, and confusing at the same time. :scratch:

    So, if Jupiter represents God the Father, and doesn’t represent God the Son (Jesus), as many of us have believed for so long, then Jupiter as representing the man child being caught up to God’s throne, wouldn’t make sense. Because God the Father would not be caught up to His own throne.

    Does this then prove that the Revelation 12 sign does not picture the Rapture, because Venus represents Jesus, instead of Jupiter representing Jesus.

    Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

    Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

    Looking doesn’t mean using eyes. It means to wait for.

    προσδεχομενοι verb – present middle or passive deponent participle – nominative plural masculine
    prosdechomai pros-dekh’-om-ahee: to admit (to intercourse, hospitality, credence, or (figuratively) endurance); by implication, to await (with confidence or patience) — accept, allow, look (wait) for, take.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Heather, I am not sure who you were directing your response towards, as you did not indicate this! Perhaps me, or someone else in this thread, or all of us!

    but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

    I am confused,:scratch: don’t many of us have the hope that Pentecost might be the day of the Rapture, that we see approaching? Aren’t we patient in waiting for Pentecost to arrive?

    1 Thessalonians 5:4 says: “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief”. In order for the brethren to not be overtaken as a thief, there has to be a day approaching that the brethren are aware of, that they think the Rapture might occur on. That is not to say that the brethren knows the day of the Rapture, but that the Rapture would occur on a day they think it “might” occur on. Not a day they “know” it will occur on. To know, indicates that there is no doubt as to the day. But, we have doubt that the Rapture might occur on Pentecost. It might occur on Pentecost, or then again, it might not, we don’t “know”.

    Looking doesn’t mean using eyes. It means to wait for.

    Don’t we use our eyes when we look at the calendar, and think that Pentecost is coming soon, and that the Rapture might occur on that day? :rose:
