Those seem to be saying that it will be the literal moon and sun just as in Joshua's day.
Luke 21:20-28 "However, when you see Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that the desolating of her has drawn near. Then let those in Judea begin fleeing to the mountains, let those in the midst of her leave, and let those in the countryside not enter into her, because these are days for meting out justice in order that all the things written may be fulfilled. Woe to the pregnant women and those nursing a baby in those days! For there will be great distress on the land and wrath against this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled."

“Also, there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and its agitation. People will become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But as these things start to occur, stand up straight and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is getting near.”


How can a Preterist read these verses and believe Jesus is only talking about the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD? When I read them, I see Jesus warning his contemporaries about 70 AD, as well as those alive when he returns. I see a beginning, a middle and an end. The beginning is 70 AD; the middle is the signs in the sun, moon and stars; the end is the visible return of Jesus to judge the wicked.

I think that's what my question is: will this "sign" in the sun, moon, etc., be the beginning of Christ's return as the eclipse people seem to think it will be, or at the end?

When Peter was quoting from Joel in Acts 2, he coincided it with Pentecost when holy spirit was poured out.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...

I don't look for signs anymore, but I don't deny they're coming. I think predicting the sign is impossible, but interpreting after the fact is another story. This guy has made a lot of $$$ with false prophesies.


Sorry Carl, I can’t help myself. You’re right about the signs though - there is an undercurrent to be felt, if only of expectation. We will know when they materialise.

I just came across this info. I was not tracking


"❗️Dangerous solar flares will hit earth in the next 72 hours

The Solar Astronomy Laboratory of the Institute of Space Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences recorded the day before a powerful solar flare, which was assigned the highest score of X 1.1.

The explosion occurred almost exactly on the Sun-Earth line, in the area of maximum impact on the planet. The flare was accompanied by a large ejection of plasma masses towards the Earth.

Today, several coronal holes have merged into one giant coronal hole, 20 times the size of the Earth. Flows from it, according to calculations, will reach the Earth by Tuesday-Wednesday.

As scientists warn, magnetic storms may cause problems with radio communications and the operation of Earth satellites.


Doctors recommend not to tire yourself with physical activity on such days, monitor your blood pressure, get enough sleep and eat right. Foods rich in magnesium and potassium will help cope with the negative effects of magnetic storms."
