August 29: “These Things,” Great signs from heaven

“These Things,”

Great signs from heaven

Although this is another sign that will be part of the Tribulation, we include it here as it was part of Yeshua’s prophetic warnings in answer to the Apostles.

Luke 21:11

011 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.

The Hebrew prophet Joel warned about these great signs, but also God’s promise to deliver those who would call upon Him in faith.

Joel 2:30-32

“And I will show 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 coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,
As the Lord has said,
Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.

Joel’s prophesy was repeated by Peter on the Day of Pentecost.

Acts 2:19-21

“I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.”

That’ Peter repeated Joel’s reveals God’s heart of mercy and grace to continually warn Israel of the impending doom.  It is likewise a warning to us for whom the Day of the Lord is so much closer.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD IN HER FEAR AND CONFUSION.
