The Coming Eclipse

Don’t let them waste their time in endless discussions of myths and spiritual pedigrees. These things only lead to meaningless speculations, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God.

1 Timothy 1:4 (NLT)

With the many distractions going on this year, I wanted to share a few thoughts…
I’ve seen numerous posts and videos about certain so-called prophets saying this or that will happen during the upcoming solar eclipse. Please know solar eclipses and blood moons have happened many times through the course of history. Concerning the return of Jesus Christ, He will return when He returns, we are not called to try to figure out the day or hour.
These so-called predictions while maybe done by well-meaning people are the same as the predictions that went around in 2015 about the four blood moons.
We need to be focused on God’s Word and sharing the Gospel, not popcorn prophecies about current events or who will win a race.
The enemy is working hard to distract the church,. Many (with good intentions) gave into following the so-called ‘prophecies’ concerning 2020. Let us not repeat that this year! If the result of a race robs you of your joy, then are you truly established on the rock of ages, Jesus Christ? He is our true source of joy!
The gift of prophecy in the New Testament is about edification, exhortation, and exhalation for the body of Christ. Predicting who will win a race does not fit the genuine gift that is sovereignly given by the Holy Spirit as seen in the New Testament.
As someone who believes in the gifts of the Holy Spirit still being available today, I remain grieved to see continual abuse and counterfeits of these gifts.
Don’t follow the various fads that go on in the name of Christianity, stick to following God’s Word!
