To the Editor:
What is the significance of the solar eclipse to those who study the Bible?
Genesis 1:14 states that God made lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night and to let them be signs for seasons, days and years. The sun is the light of the day and is sybolic of Jesus, who is the light of the world.
The moon is the light of the night and is symbolic of Satan and the darkness he brings into the world.
Satan's mission in the end times is to come disguised as Jesus in an attempt to deceive the world into worshipping him as God. Unknown to many people, Satan will come first before Jesus, claiming to be God and will cause a great falling away from truth. (2nd Thessalonians 1:1-4)
As we look at the world today, we see a lack of faith in God, which leads to many troubles as moral values decline and evil seems to be on the increase. This leads some to wonder if we are nearing the end of this dispensation of time.
When one considers the solar eclipse, you can't help to think that it is a sign that the day of Satan's appearance may not be that far away. You see the moon blocking out the light from the sun.
The lesser light blocking out the greater light. The deceiver attempting to cover the truth. A fake god wanting to be worshipped as the true God.
Not to worry. There are many that know the truth and will stand against Satan to expose his lies when he comes pretending to be God. For those that have eyes to see, you are blessed to make this stand (Ephesians 6:10-18). Be a watchman and watch.
