If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. Mark 3:24-25
Known as “The Great American Eclipse”. It will be the most viewed eclipse in history and it has certainly carried with it the most speculation. On August 21st a 70 mile wide shadow of darkness will slice the nation in half. This should be pretty straight forward even for those of you who don’t much care for the language of metaphor. This is the first total eclipse exclusive to the United States since the nation’s inception that extends from coast to coast.
As I set out to cover any staggering confluence, my intent is to condense it in a way that is accessible to many. I recognize how foreign this approach to viewing reality can be. The ever increasing Biblical metaphors in current events are so complex that no amount of human intellect or imagination could come close to recreating them. I use repetition in hopes of solidifying concepts and bringing to the forefront relevant information that may have escaped you under the torrent.
This post is not structured in order of importance. Some of the more profound aspects are embedded further along where their gravity is dependent on the preceding foundation. This is more of an ebook than blog post. We simply cannot do justice to any of the matters covered within apart from expanding our purview. If traffic was our aim this would be broken into 10 posts. The only concern we have is that you understand this information. Many of you are well aware that the way of the internet is to over promise, under deliver and maximize clicks for ad revenue. Our aim is the opposite, perhaps equally as exhausting but more akin to a good workout versus incessant mosquito bites.
My role is to connect the pieces and lay them before you in the clearest way I can. Your job is to overcome the noise that is competing for your attention. Have you ever wondered why we don’t have ads? You don’t need any more obstacles in wrestling with information that is difficult enough. We will be pulling a lot of information from previous posts, strict attention to detail will serve you well. To exclude them would disqualify new readers and assumes a level of retention none of us possess. If you are anything like me you simply cannot recall a large portion of what we have covered before. I will reread a post a few days after publishing realizing I had already forgotten many significant facts. It is impossible to keep all this information sorted out.
Resist the innate propensity to compartmentalize. Don’t cling to ideology or attempt to pigeon hole one thing or another as good or bad. The world we inhabit is far more complex than the divide and conquer narrative would have you believe. Perhaps nobody embodied complexity more than Solomon. He loved God and was loved by God yet is seen by many believers as a type of Antichrist. Types and shadows shed much light on the human dynamic, man’s free will in light of a sovereign God.
I’ve always been up front as to where I stand on Trump. I like him, I do not view him as a savior nor do I care about his shortcomings. Like everyone he has moments of nobility mixed with moments of degeneracy. There is no agenda here apart from sharing fingerprints of God’s glory revealed to me. Trump just happens to be a prophetic buffet who makes me laugh more than anyone on this planet. My opinions about his nature and policy have zero significance in light of why he is in office and his appointed role to usher in the final act. I wish more people would distance themselves from their affection or disdain of the man. He is playing his part and even he is not fully aware of what that is.
TIME – The End is near, deal with it! The TIME of the end and Trump is leading us closer to the last trump.
This post will have chapter numbers so you can resume where you left off more easily. I am personally blown away with certain elements contained within and I believe you will be as well. May the One who formed you in your mother’s womb and appointed your sliver history to be at the epoch of the age grant you wisdom and knowledge as you seek out His mysteries. I hope this blesses you in the same way many of you have blessed me.
Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
The day is short, and the task is great, and the workmen are sluggish, and the reward is much, and the Master of the house is urgent – Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers)
It would not be until Jerusalem was returned to Israel that man would walk on the moon. The light of the night has been seen by all and worshiped by many. For the first 99.2% of human history man would gaze and wonder at the moon, in the last .8% of human history man would walk on it. The sun and the moon are celestial clocks. Day turns to night and another day dawns. Our Father who created time has left discernible patterns of His hand throughout history. Read More
Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. Daniel 2:20-22
A person’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed. Job 14:5
We may understand the truth that God raises up kings but until the last few days, never before had I seen a “divine proof” if I can call it that. Yesterday, when I wrote the majority of this article I had told a few close friends, “I’m not sure what to think about what it is we do if this does not mean God has selected Trump”. Many times we see fingerprints pointing to deeper truths but come to find out we miss read the evidence as it were. When this happens, we are usually confronted with a far more profound meaning that we had missed the entire time. Read More
