”What do you think will happen on September 23rd?”

“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.”

“And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”

—Revelation 12:1-6

“What do you think will happen on September 23rd?” I answered that I didn't know and honestly I don't. But, I do believe with all my heart, that this is a sign from God, a warning, a heads up (just as I believe this eclipse was). I do believe the Lord God Almighty is doing all He can to get our attention.

“AND BEHOLD, I AM COMING QUICKLY, and my reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” —Revelation 22:12-13

What is this “work” we are to do? It's very simple: “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” / “For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” —Romans 10:9,13

“God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.” —John 3:16

Jesus paid for your sins and mine. He said on the Cross, “It is finished.” Our part is to believe and receive this amazing gift of salvation that He offers.

I'm very bold about my faith here on social media, but in person I fail miserably in my boldness for what I believe. Let me state for the record then (if I haven't been clear enough) that I do believe with all my heart, Jesus Christ is coming soon.

The signs, His signs, His warnings, are screaming at us. Signs in nature... Signs in civil unrest... Signs in wars and rumors of wars. Just to name a few. These have been occurring for a while now. I've mentioned them for years now here on Facebook. It's time to wake up and face reality.

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” —Romans 12:11
