Maybe, but Jesus said of the end times (which I think there is good reason to believe we are in),

Then Jesus changed His mind back in 1979 after the last total eclipse.........Just curious, is Jesus prone to changing His mind?

One fine thing from the eclipse. It calls to mind the word "syzygy" (i.e., an alignment of three or more celestial bodies) ... one of the very best words to use in a game of "Hangman".

Give it a go next chance you get ... Watch the expression on your opponent's face when after they run the "standard" vowels they're practically hanged ... then they get three "y"s. Great fun indeed!

A sign is something out of the ordinary.

A star going nova might be a sign.

The moon spinning so that we can see the other side might be a sign.

The sun standing still, definitely a sign.

An eclipse is not.

And sorry but in the ME the moon was masculine not feminine.

So your sign is that men are trying to take the place of God who is the Sun.

I am sure that is some how women's fault a well as we all know men are pure and holy and women are evil.

If you want to see darkness stop looking at the sky and look inside your own heart.

Chuck Norris looked directly at the eclipse. It blinked.

I don't know, you tell me. You implied that the solar eclipse may be a sign of the end of times then I merely asked you why didn't the total eclipse back in 1979 signal the same thing. Like I said, maybe Jesus changed His mind back then? If not back then then why now?

Of course there’s some level of eclipse every few months. The big deal about this one is that it was a total eclipse over well populated parts of America. There’s 3 more next year ), and 3 the year after that (including a total over South America), and 2 more in 2020 (SA gets another total). The world averages 2.5 eclipses a year and a total eclipse about every 1.5 years. As signs and portents go, it ain’t all that.

It reminds us that “God’s in His heaven and all’s right with the world.”. A very humbling event.

Furthermore,

Obama the nachash has been eclipsed, and we were told (and you can see this Obama-serpent further down in the verse that is the date):

The sign of the Redemption was provided 5 days prior to the Inauguration of Desolation. That was eight years ago.

God's word is filled with many layers:

On the 15th day of the first month, in Trump central, which is Diaspora central, the Miracle on the Hudson occurred. The passengers (spelled in Hebrew the same as Hebrews, עברים , see Eze 39:11), were carried on the eagle's wings (eagle - a very large bird and symbol of the US) across the river on dry land (the wings). The image is famous. US Airways 1549. Any one half familiar with the Exodus account should notice the 15 (the date) and the 49 (the count of seven weeks commencing the day after the 15th). 15, then 49. It IS the flight number.

The Torah reading on that day (January 15, 2009) laid out the very process, when Moses was told of the plan, and when he was given the demonstration of his staff being converted into a nachash (serpent).

Here is the verse that tells of the date:

Numbers 33:3. And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the next day after the Passover the children of Israel went out with a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians:

Then the count begins from the Exodus to the giving of the Law on the 6th of Sivan, seven weeks to the 50th day. Next year, 5778, marks 3330 years since this took place in Hebrew year 2448.

The Miracle occurred five days ahead of the Inauguration of Desolation, which is an example of placing the "cure before the disease", the remedy before the illness, the rectification ahead of the problem, the problem that is that enemy serpent Obama.

Note what is in the text of Numbers 33.3:

בחדש הראשון בחמשה עשר יום

in the first month, on the fifteenth day:

 

OBAMA, every other letter. Being that it is every other letter, there is another word/phrase that is woven in between Obama: NACHASH, she'nachash: the one who is the serpent.

There's a reason he set up his stealth command compound in that creepy house. And also there is a reason that it was on the Feast of Epiphany when Congress (Establishment central) certified the election of a man named TRUMP. That night, Obama celebrated what was called by the MSM (the voice of the Establishment), Obama's Last Bash.

It reads right out of the history books.

Also, the sum of the letters in red and blue (Obama she'nachash, Obama who is the serpent) = 712 = 356 x 2

Barak Obama (ברק אובמה) 356 + AMERICA (אמריקה) 356 = 712

Israel was a nation within a nation (Egypt). And scholars can't find America in Bible prophecy.

The problem is, when have there NOT been 'signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars', 'distress of nations, with perplexity', and weather causing 'the sea and the waves' to roar?

Luna has been considered Feminine, and Sol Masculine, in some cultures - but not all.

And it would seem to me that we would see 'end times' over something far more significant and wide-spread than modern-day, Western feminism. You seem to think that God will condemn the entire Earth because of a short-lived 'ism' that doesn't even exist among the greater population of the world.

Christians, at any rate, seem to have been told to forget about all of that 'sign' stuff, and live by personal faith. I think it's important to be careful of what one believes.

a sign of the end times...why didn't the total eclipse back in 1979

It almost certainly did. I believe we are in the end times, but The End as spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24:6, is not yet.

Not at all. God loves the world and sent Jesus to save the world not to condemn it (John 3:16-17). I never said anything about God condemning the world.

I also never said anything about basing your faith on such spurious things as speculation of the meaning of signs and wonders.

Be careful how you represent what I say. You might come across like the "fake news" that claims Trump said what he never said.

ALMOST? 38 years of the pending End of Times since the last eclipse in 1979...........Any insight into when the Detroit Lions are going to win the Super Bowl?

As a post script do you have any idea how many threads have been posted over the past 20 years that have predicted the End of Times is at hand? Do you know how many "Christian" charlatans have predicted the end of the world within days but yet not one of them would give me their Cadillac when I asked for it?

Yes, well: excuse me for misunderstanding, but you appear somewhat incoherent here.

You suggest that ‘maybe’ the eclipse is a ‘sign’, and quote Jesus speaking of ‘signs’; and then suggest that maybe there’s something ‘symbolic’ about ‘all of this’ - by which I assume you mean the eclipse.

And then you say this:

So one way (not the only way) to look at this eclipse could be the idea that the woman is getting in front of and usurping the man which is happening in America and all over the world these days. A la "feminism, the women's movement, and "equal rights", women are supplanting men in the home and the workplace not because of ability but because of gender and I think the results we're seeing is broken homes and less intelligence in the workplace - more darkness.

So, the bottom line of your post seemed to be that we are in the end times, and MAYBE it's because of Feminism, and the female supplanting the male – (which, contrary to your assertion, is NOT happening ‘all over the world’ today – among the largest cultural populations, it isn’t happening much at all) .

If that’s not what you mean, what DO you mean ?

Well, maybe you need to bone a bit on the Bible my FRiend.

The bible distinguishes between "the times and seasons" and "the day and the hour" of the end times. The last age before Christ's return probably started around 1900. Even Peter the apostle said, "the end of all things is at hand" (1 Peter 4:7), 2000 years ago.

And I hope you're not one of the scoffers Peter also talks about.

be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.
2 Peter 3:2-4.

Certainly.

It’s symbolic of how the moon orbits the earth and the earth orbits the sun while the moon orbits the earth.

Reading anything more into it than that is pure balderdash.

Well, a little confused, but pretty close.

We are not in the end times BECAUSE of the women’s movement. There are too many signs of the end times to mention here, not the least of which is the first time in world history that man has the capability of literally blowing up the earth and that capability is gradually falling into the hands of crazy Islamic jihadists who think there are 70 virgins waiting for them if they do just that.

The “times and seasons” of the end times we are in are marked by an increase of God’s light and Satan’s darkness. I’m suggesting that one way of seeing the eclipse may be a picture of the women’s movement being a contributor to that darkness.
