Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth (Revelation 12:1-2, NKJV).

On September 23, 2017, one day from today, a sign will appear in the sky above and only physically visible from Jerusalem. If you have the proper software you can view it from your computer or mobile device just as the sun is coming up in Jerusalem on Saturday, September 23rd. According to those involved in this research, the last time this occurred was about 2000 years ago, with one difference – one of the planets involved is different. This specific alignment of the sun, moon, stars, and planets happen about 7000 years ago and will not happen for another 7000 years.

The great sign of Revelation 12 is a woman (Virgo) clothed in the sun, with the moon at her feet, and a crown of 12 stars (the constellation Leo (9 stars) and three wondering planets (Mercury, Mars, and Venus)) above her head. The planet Jupiter is currently inside Virgo and has been there for the past nine months. Tomorrow, Jupiter will exit Virgo (birth) and the moon will be located at her feet. As of 6:30 am today, the moon is currently located in front of and at the upper right of Jupiter. Saturn is currently at the right knee of Ophiuchus, the serpent wrestler, just below the serpent lunging toward Virgo.

Those who discovered the alignment and other true watchmen in Christ have been warning of coming changes on earth. Some postulate that it could be the rapture and beginning of the last 7 years of Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel chapter 9). Almost all agree that it is pointing to something big is on the horizon.

The enemy has mobilized his cohorts to distort the truth, to mock, to cast doubt in the minds of people, and to discredit those who have been sharing this great fulfillment of prophecy. Some media outlets and articles have come out saying these watchmen are calling for the end of the world on September 23, 2017. I have seen their videos and listened to their arguments and while I may not agree with everything they teach, I have never heard those I have been following say the world will end on September 23, 2017. In fact, they believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church and the thousand-year reign of Christ on the earth.

Let us each pray for eyes to see and ears to hear so that we may know the truth; that we may be set free from deception. Lord, teach us to live for you and to lean on your words for understanding and discernment. Help us to live our lives in the manner of your Son Jesus our Messiah to the glory of God the Father. Amen.
