New Comet Discovered—May Become "One of Brightest in History"

Luke 21:25  There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

This comet that is coming next year will be one of the brightest in history.  Comets have historically been associated with doom by ancient cultures.  Those cultures were not stupid as today's so called scientists and 'experts' would have us believe.  They saw comets and they saw bad things happen so they associated the two together.

Coming close on the heels of this brightest comet in history we see these signs in the sun and moon:

            It has been discovered that in the years 2014 and 2015 there will be two solar eclipses and four lunar eclipses, all of them occurring on Jewish Holy Days.

            The Lunar eclipses:

            Passover                                 April 15, 2014
            Feast of Tabernacles              October 8, 2014
            Passover                                 April 4, 2015
            Feast of Tabernacles              September 28, 2015

            The two Solar eclipses connected with Holy Days in 2014-2015:

            Adar 29/Nisan 1(new year)            March 20, 2015
            Feast of Trumpets                  September 13, 2015

Many of the signs we see around the world today are easily manipulated by men.  These signs in the heaven are untainted by man's machinations and intrigues to deceive the masses.  I submit to you that the earthquakes are reliable signs in spite of the rumors we hear than man can now create earthquakes.  The Word of God tells us that the Lord God approaches with earthquake as He rises to shake the whole earth.

the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise,
with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.

At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed.
Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake ...
// - 18k
Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a
severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred ...
// - 18k
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake... I watched as
the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake.

At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, "Once
more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens 

And the list goes on....

We have divine signs in the earth and the heavens.  We have them now and we have them on the way.  Why are these signs reliable?  Because man cannot touch them.  What do these signs mean? the Lord is on the way, as is destruction.  The Lord is coming with deliverance and destruction as it was in the days of Noah and Lot so it shall be again:

Luke 1726“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.

The Lord has impressed this servant with the need to be watching, faithful and most of all..patient. We must be clear about what this means.  The Lord could come back for His Bride today.  That does not mean His 'second coming' is imminent, it means the Master is coming back for His Bride at a time that nobody expects.  This fits hand in glove with the Jewish wedding tradition.  This also fits with the warning the Lord gave us:

Mark 1332“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alertf! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Could the Lord be more emphatic or more clear?  WATCH.  When?  NOW.  And yet we are surrounded by 'christians' who tell us not to bother watching because the Lord "cannot come back for us until x,y, and z happens."  These are people who "will not watch" and we see what the result is, He will come upon them as a thief.  That cannot be good.

We have signs in the earth and signs in the heaven.  The signs in the heaven are taking on some extraordinary life starting next year with the arrival of this great comet and the following eclipses on the Lord's holy days.  Even with these signs we do not know the date and time of His arrival which requires us to be ready and watching every day.  The signs alert us to approach, not time of arrival.  What did the Lord say about this?

Matt 16 2He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

What do these signs in the earth and heavens mean?  In this writer's mind it means time is becoming shorter and we must be more vigilant than ever while we temper our eager anticipation of the Lord's return for us with patience.  The Taking of the Bride and the 'second coming' are two separate events that too many people confuse.

One possible interpretation of these signs in the heavens is that the tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble/Daniel's seventieth week may begin in the neighborhood of 2014/2015.  2015 is the beginning of another sabbatical year.  It also may mean that any day now the tribulation may begin and immediately after the heavenly warnings of 2014/2015 the second half of the tribulation known as the great tribulation begins.

Is this all speculation?  A big yes.  The Lord told us to be watching every day for a reason.  He told us to be patient for a reason.  I cannot say it better than the Lord Himself said it:

Matt 24:43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

As it is, we do not know what time of night the thief is coming so we must watch-always.  Notice that the signs we are seeing stretch over a period of years.  The distress we see on the earth today is no different, it has covered years and is in a continuous downward spiral.  Again this calls for patient endurance, faith and watching in prayer.

How do we watch?  In prayer:

... Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving

 I submit these things for your consideration because I was hesitant to write this post, but the Lord repeatedly brought me back to it as this article on next years comet passed before my eyes over and over again.

This writer above all others is completely blind to the timing of the Bridegrooms arrival for the Bride.  Although this writer is blind to the time of arrival, he believes the signs of the Bridegroom's approach are undeniable.

These are the impressions this writer has today.  May the grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with us.
