Annie's Signs in the Sky Page
"And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call." ~~Joel 2:30-32~~
Did you know that before the Lord's mighty return there will be definite signs in the heavens? Jesus tells us that there will be "signs in the sky" to tell us of His return.
you know the "signs of the times"?

In the next few months there will be some very noticable events in the skies. I feel that as Christian's we need to know what is to be expected and to have the answers to the questions that we will be asked. People seem to be curious and interested more and more about "The End Times" or "The End of the World".
"And in the morning, It
will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red
What a wonderful opportunity we have to share the Lord God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth with those who are curious and frightened. The Bible does talk about "eclipses" and "things falling from the sky". But do you know where to find them?
There are THREE major special events that will happen in the sky in the next few weeks. A SOLAR ECLIPSE, a COMET passing by and a PLANET ALIGNMENT.
On August 11th, 1999 there will be a solar eclipse. It is the last one for the 20th century. The Bible tells us that the Sun will go dark before the Lord's return. Is this the same thing?
In July the comet named Lee will be passing very close to the earth. And there will be a 4 planet alignment in the form of a cross. What do all these events mean? Is it in the Bible?
What does Chapter 12 of Revelations have to do with the sky and astronomy?
Many people are talking about the Quatraines that Nostradamas wrote. Especially the one that predicted something will happen in the sky in the seventh month of 1999. Will it come true? What is his record for his predictions? Should we as Christian's believe in predictions?
The Bible tells us that in the last days our sons will dream dreams and our daughters will have visions. Can anyone predict the future? Does Bible prophecy tell us what to expect and when we should be looking for it?
disciples asked him, "What shall be the sign of thy
coming, and of the end of the world? The Saviour then
proceeded to describe those world events which would both
indicate His return and culminate in the Day of the
the Torah reading give us any indication of what might
There are so many questions to ask. So many things to ponder. I don't have all the answers. NO ONE DOES!!! We may THINK that we know for certain how the end times will unfold but we MUST ALWAYS remember that we can't be 100% certain what will happen. If the Bible had one special chapter that listed dates and events then we could be certain. But Prophecy is like putting a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle together. To learn more about the End Times visit Annie's End Times Page.
Don't be discouraged or afraid. The Lord created the Heavens and the Earth and He knows the Future from the Past. He will protect His children. The Bible promises us that.
These "signs in the sky" give us a wonderful opportunity to share our faith with others. People may ask you why you are not "afraid" of what might happen. Do you know what your answer would be if you were asked? If someone asked you how they could become a Christian do you know how to lead them to the Lord?

God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer
to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is
in you with meekness and fear:"

about Nostradamus's prediction about July 1999?
In the Original French:
The World Book Encyclopedia
tells us this about Nostradamus: "Nostradamus,
pronounced nahs truh DAY muhs (1503-1566), was the Latin
name of Michel de Notredame, a French astrologer and
physician. His fame rests on his book Centuries (1555), a
series of prophecies in verse. Nostradamus won lasting
fame in 1559 when King Henry II of France died in a
manner predicted in the Centuries.
the Jewish Feast Days have any significance to the
upcoming signs in the skies?
now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to
face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as
also I am known."
Visit Annie's Feasts of the Bible Page for more information about the feasts and their fulfillment.
"In Judaism, the most sacred festivals are Rosh Ha-Shanah, the Jewish New Year; and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. According to Jewish tradition, people are judged on Rosh Ha-Shanah for their deeds of the past year. On Yom Kippur, Jews fast, express their regret for past sins, and declare their hope to perform good deeds during the coming year." ~Source: The World Book Encyclopedia~

happens when the planets align?
Here is a wonderful graphic of the planet alignments August 11th.
We know that the Bible tells us to look to the skies and heavens for signs. We don't know exactly what the sign means but it is indeed a sign of some sort.

July 31st - I am still looking for a better link for this. Please remember that not all of the items on these outside links are what I believe. I have been hearing that there will be a planetary Cross made by 4 of the planets. On August 11th a planetary cross will surround the Earth during a Total Eclipse of the Sun. The planets will be positioned in LION, EAGLE, OX and MAN, the creatures of the apocalypse. They are the Ezekiel's 4 beasts and are also mentioned numerous times in the book of Revelations.
What is Biblical Astronomy?
The dictionary defines the separate words this way:
declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his
handy work. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto
night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language,
where their voice is not heard."

Is Astronomy the same thing as Astrology? & What does the Bible say about Astronomy?
Dictionary tells us this about "Astronomy" -
The oldest divisions of time were mainly based on the observation of the movements of the heavenly bodies, the "ordinances of heaven" (Gen. 1:14-18; Job 38:33; Jer. 31:35; 33:25). Such observations led to the division of the year into months and the mapping out of the appearances of the stars into twelve portions, which received from the Greeks the name of the "zodiac." The word "Mazzaroth" (Job 38:32) means, as the margin notes, "the twelve signs" of the zodiac. Astronomical observations were also necessary among the Jews in order to the fixing of the proper time for sacred ceremonies, the "new moons," the "passover," etc. Many allusions are found to the display of God's wisdom and power as seen in the starry heavens (Ps. 8; 19:1-6; Isa. 51:6, etc.)."
Nave's Topical Bible tell us this about "Astronomy" -
World Book Encyclopedia tells us:
Interest in astrology declined in Europe with the coming of Christianity as people sought guidance from religious leaders rather than from astrologers. Astrology regained popularity during the A.D. 1100's. By the 1600's, it was particularly strong in England. Several astrological almanacs were published, and many other books either defended or attacked astrology. The number of followers of astrology fell in England during the 1700's, but the subject's popularity returned again in the early 1800's. By the late 1800's and early 1900's, interest in astrology had spread to many other nations.

the third part of the moon, and the third
part of the stars; so as the third

"And many other signs
truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which
are not written in this book:"
I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the

Today ponder what the "signs of them times" mean. Do you remember this saying: "pink sky at night is a sailors delight -- pink sky in the morning sailors take warning"? If the sun went black would you know what is suppose to happen next????
Matthew 24:3, "Christs disciples asked him, "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? The Saviour then proceeded to describe those world events which would both indicate His return and culminate in the Day of the Lord."
All right, what can we expect? We know that the Lord will indeed return one day soon. Will it be tomorrow? Will it be the day of a fall feast? Will it be on the Solar Eclipse? I truly don't know for certain. Remember that the Lord told us that no one knows the exact time BUT we are suppose to know the signs and the season.
Are you ready for His return? Will you be found waiting and looking in anticipation?
Don't put off getting your heart right with the Lord. Life is too short and uncertain. You don't know what tomorrow will bring. So many things are happening every day that are certainly part of the end times. Can His return be much longer?
"And when these things
begin to come to pass, then look up,
Stop right now. Search your heart. If you are not ready for the Lord's return then now is the time to change that. Ask the Lord to forgive you for your sins.
1 John 1:9 is written to believers and says: "If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
We are not perfect as Christians. We have a perfect Savior. We have the assurance that we are forgiven. We are given the wonderful gift by the GRACE of GOD.
Jesus told a parable of the workers harvesting in the field. Some started their work early in the morning and some late in the day. Others only worked for an hour BUT they were all paid the SAME wage. All the workers were treated equally.
God only promises us today. You never know what tomorrow will bring. The HARVEST is soon. Make sure you are found ready.
