What Then?


When the great factory-plants of our cities
Have turned-out their last finished works,
When our merchants have sold their last products,
And sent home the last of the Clerks;
When our banks have transacted their business,
And paid out the last dividend;
When the Judge of the Earth calls a reckoning,
And asks for a balance -WHAT THEN?

When the Church choir has sung its last anthem,
And the preacher has made his last prayer;
When the people have heard their last sermon,
And the sound has died out on the air;
When the Bible lies closed on the pulpit,
And the pews are all empty of men,
When each one stands facing his record,
And the Great Book is opened - WHAT THEN?

When the actors have played their last drama.
And the mimic has made his last fun,
When the film has flashed its last picture,
And the billboard displayed its last run;
When the crowds seeking pleasure have vanished,
And gone out in the darkness again,
When the trumpet of ages is sounded,
And we all stand before Him - WHAT THEN?

When the bugle-call sinks into silence,
And the long marching columns stand still;
When the captain repeats his last orders,
And they've captured the last fort and hill;
When the flag has been hauled from the mast-head,
And peace seems to reign among men,
When those who rejected the Saviour
Are asked for a reason - WHAT THEN?

Partial Solar Eclipse Today

October 23, 2014

Today, a partial solar eclipse will be seen by largely the same audience that observed the second and most recent total lunar eclipse of the current tetrad. 

I really don't see any biblical connection with this particular event, but if you're interested you might follow this link to: "This Day in History."

Signs in the Heavens



Two Blood Moons Have Passed:

I received an e-mail from a gentleman who scoffed at the blood moon tetrad saying, "So what?  It hasn't affected me so far!"  I replied "that's the key...'so far.'"

The blood moon tetrad is a signal, yet when you look at the Jewish calendar, there appears to be a sequence unlike anything seen before in this generation.

Since I cited Jonathan Cahn in his book, "The Harbinger," one of the "Harbingers" was the replacement of the sycamore tree (which was destroyed in the 'first attack' of 9-11-01) with the 'Erez' tree.  [Isaiah 9:10 - "Bricks have fallen, but we will build with cut stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will use cedars instead.

A literal fulfillment took place with a  spruce tree (which is of the same family as the cedar), a conifer that was named the "Tree of Hope" was planted in the exact spot where the sycamore had been.  Despite all of the efforts of expert arborists, the 'Tree of Hope' withered and died.  It was removed, and then completely shredded on the day of the first blood moon of the tetrad.
Just another sign?  How about the earliest reporting of the current Ebola outbreak first reported on the evening of the first blood moon? 
How about the second blood moon, October 8, 2014?  What can one say about that?
Well, Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., died today (Oct.8, 2014).  He first sought medical help when his symptoms led to his seeking medical attention on September 25, 2014 - the day of "Rosh Hashana" on the Jewish calendar.  This comes on the heels of President Obama reassuring America that there is little change of the deadly disease reaching America's shores.
So much for that.

Today, Islamic radicals in Ottawa, Canada saw the results of an apparent follower of ISIS or ISIL if you please, going on a killing spree.  AS of this writing, the details remain sketchy but the times we're living in show a convergence of events predicted in both the Old and New Testament writings of the Holy Scriptures.

So What Lies Ahead?

America's borders are relatively unsecured and estimates are such that there are over 12 million undocumented aliens currently residing in the US, so it stands to reason that Islamic terrorists are among that number.  Can what is unfolding in Canada today not be expected to happen in the US?  With the American parallel to a God rejecting Israel as outlined in The Harbinger, perhaps we can have an idea of when the next big thing will happen - and perhaps it will occur with an astronomical signpost. 

Partial Solar Eclipse of 2014 Oct 23:
Since Solar Eclipses are regarded by some Hebrew scholars as having to do with Gentile nations, something of note happening might be something to watch for.  The eclipse will begin around 1:35 p.m. in Seattle. As the Earth turns, the rest of the country will be treated to the phenomenon closer to sunset, with it reaching New York at 5:49 p.m. and Tallahassee, Florida, at 6:09 p.m.

Until tomorrow!   God bless all who trust in Jesus.
