And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God, “That I will make the sun go down at noon and I will darken the earth in broad daylight; Amos 8:9
It sounds exactly like an eclipse. Eclipses have taken place for thousands of years, most of those without a prediction. Now an eclipse is predicted with precision on percentage of totality and path.
I’ve known about today’s eclipse for several years and actually planned on taking a vacation and traveling to some obscure off-road location for the unique photo opportunity.
Here I sit in East Texas today, where we shall see about a 75% totality.
My plans took a different turn than I predicted and planned.
First, school has started for Linda and it is impossible for her to get time off. I really don’t want to go without her.
Second, I would have to travel about 12 hours to get into the zone of darkness. I can only imagine how many others have filled motels and hotels.
Third, it’s summer and it’s hot!
Besides, another eclipse is coming close to home in April 2024. Totality travels right through the heart of Texas, including some of our favorite vacation spots like Fredericksburg, Glenrose, West, and Athens.
Now I’m traveling only 2 – 6 hours, depending on where we go and it’s much cooler since it’s spring!
God can change plans at any time. Many things can happen over the next 7 years.
Eclipses also play a big part in God’s plans.
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven. Mark 13:24-27
