I have been praying about the total solar eclipse this Aug 21. First let’s look at scriptures; Joel 2:30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. NIV
The sun is turned to darkness whenever there is a solar eclipse and the moon blocks the light from sun when it crosses in between the Earth and the Sun’s orbital paths.
The moon is turned to a blood red color whenever there is a lunar eclipse.
On Aug 21 we will experience what they are calling the Great American Eclipse that will be a total eclipse for a diagonal path (70 miles wide and partial eclipse for the rest of the country) from the northwest to southeast across the US. This is the first time in almost 100 years there will be a total solar eclipse across the US.
The path of the total solar eclipse is called “the path of totality” and there has to be perfect alignment of the moon in it’s orbit around and in between the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. The Sun is @400 times larger then the moon, but it is also @400 times further away. The moon’s orbit around the Earth helps control the ocean tides and keep the Earth in the perfect rotational axis while orbiting the Sun.
During the eclipse scientists study the awesome and brilliance of the Sun’s corona that shines around and backlights the black shadowed sphere of the moon.
It is the path of totality that God wants, total yielding control of our lives to His plans and purposes and submitting to His timing. He wants us to come into perfect alignment so His glory can be revealed through His Bride and engulf us with His Presence and Power working His redemptive plans for the people in the world to see. Just like many traveling to locations to experience the total solar eclipse. He wants people to worship Him, more than His creation, to get to know Him the creator as Father God.
The alignment process is to continue into Rosh Hashanah (September 21–22), which is not just the Jewish New Year,but one of God’s Holy Days that setups the entire next year. TIMING AND ALIGNMENT IS CRITICAL, IN THE SPIRIT REALM AT THIS TIME, TO NOT MISS GOD’S PERFECT WILL MOVING FORWARD. Just like the timing and alignment have to be PERFECT for this total solar eclipse.
God wants to position you perfectly if you will allow Him, by relying and depending on the Holy Spirit. This will require listening to what the Holy Spirit says and obeying as He leads and guides us!
