Solar Eclipse and the Bible

With all the talk about the solar eclipse, I decided to do some researching myself.   The closet verse that I found about the solar eclipse is Revelations 8:12 – And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

This sounds like a solar eclipse was happening because it was dark and third part of the sun showed.  Many people think since this verse was in Revelations that the end is near.  Further research should be done before any conclusions are drawn.  The solar eclipse can be a sign or it can be just nature running its course.

The solar eclipse is when the sun hides behind the moon and streaks of light go across the sky from the moon silhouette.  The last total  solar eclipse happened in 1935.  The next time this happens is supposed to be in 2206.  There are partial social eclipses that happen often.  S,o this will be the last one for us to witness.  None of us will be alive to see the next solar eclipse.

This is another one of God’s wonderful creations.  This is why people are so excited about the event because there are not many total solar eclipses.  Should we worry about this being a sign? No. As believers, we know that we should always be ready for the end.  We have seen others signs that were fulfilled.  This should not spook us because we know that the end is coming.  We should pray, be blameless, and bring others to God.  This event should bring us closer to God.
