America Divided Cut

The Great North American Solar Eclipse of 2024 is just 3 years away. File this under ‘Signs in the Heavens for the Once Great ‘Untied’ States.’ Why is there no mention of the United States in Bible Prophecy? ‘Uh… I also believe 2024 will be the mid-point of the Tribulation.’ A narrow path of total eclipse stretching across parts of 15 (5+5+5) U.S. states. Interestingly, over the lower Ohio Valley, the totality paths of the 2017 and 2024 intersect over the NEW MADRID FAULT ZONE. 2017 – 2024 = 7 years. ‘God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for the United States.’

America Divided Split Cut or Fractured:

Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

The US Government has become politically divided and is in discord and disunity. The political division affecting and splitting America is a direct result of its efforts to ‘divide Jerusalem’ via the ‘Deal of the Century’ or the regional covenant of peace and security in the Middle East. Throughout scripture, God has made it abundantly clear that Jerusalem is the ‘apple of his eye’ and has his stamp of ownership on it … above all other cities on earth. God makes it adequately clear in Zechariah 12:3 that any nation that attempts to cut or divide up Jerusalem, will themselves be cut up or divided. As such, the US is cut or divided politically because of its leadership role in attempting to split God’s Holy City of earthly Jerusalem. Plain and simple.

OK. So it’s clear about the accelerating implosion of political unity in the US. Political discord will get worse and become angrier, antagonistic, confrontational, and hateful with little to no compromise, concession, agreement or unity. Contempt and distrust rules the day. Some would say this is already the case not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within each party. Whether you believe the US being extremely divided is a result of God’s wrath for its role in dividing Jerusalem or not, it doesn’t matter. The fact remains that the US is becoming bitterly more and more divided. This division has also taken place in culture (LGBTQP+ social inclusiveness agenda), economics (income inequality), etc. The list can go on. America is divided on so many levels, not just politically.

Why is there no mention of the ‘United’ States in Bible Prophecy?

Prophetic Discernment: Seven (7) year ‘book-end’ solar eclipses, August 2017 to April 2024. God’s divine completion to His plan or purpose for the once powerful and great ‘United’ States. Seven (7) spirits affected; Financially, Politically, Militarily, Geographically, Geo-Politically, Spiritually and Socially. 2024 marks the ‘start’ of the final 3.5 years of the tribulation where God PERSONALLY and supernaturally protects Israel in Petra. No further need of the United States to be Israel’s ‘Big Brother’ watching over her and protecting her and giving her financial aid. By the start of 2024, the once ‘United’ States will have descended into anarchy, chaos, rebellion, the bottomless pit, despair, insolvency and strife. And irrelevancy, divide, confusion, bitterness, family against family and against its self, discord and despondency. For 70 (7) years, the United States was Israel’s ‘worldly’ protector and benefactor (1948-2018). For another last seven (7) years, August 2017 to April 2024, America’s ‘Divider in Chief’ and ‘Judas Divider’ spent three (3) intense and emphatic years (July 2017 through July 2020) planning and executing a ‘dividing, splitting, cutting or fracturing of Israel and Jerusalem. For the next and final last four (4) years, in equal parts, America steadily fell apart, literally and figuratively in every area of society. The American ‘millennium or empire’ lasted from 1620 to 2020. 400 years. America has been wandering ‘in the desert’ for 400 years and time has expired. 40(0) is a time or period of ‘trial or testing.’

Matthew 25

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Night Watchman Note (2017) Chapter 45 (Excerpt); Ezekiel 38-39 gives us a ‘CLUE’ as to why there is only a very small indirect reference to the US.

Israel appears defenseless (or is it?). The United States (under President Donald Trump) is pulling out of Syria and the Middle East. No major world power is on the scene or in the region to help protect Israel in any regional conflict or sizeable threat. Israel appears to be “easy pickings” to Russia/Iran/Turkey. Israel stands by itself, alone and literally against major world powers and armies.  Israel has to defend itself, it can’t benefit from any other ally coming to its aid (or can it?). Why is the United States mysteriously omitted or missing from this worldwide-centered event unfolding in the Middle East? Why doesn’t the United States come to the aid of one its closest allies? The United States is either unable or unwilling in coming to aid Israel’s defense. Possibilities include that a new president (Biden) is at the helm and is neutral towards Israel. Another possibility is that the United States is caught off guard by the sudden attack on Israel. Russia, Turkey and Iran in Syria is nothing new, geographically speaking. The U.S. is aware of this, even as it pulls out of Syria and the region.  The third possibility is the rapture of the Christian Church, and of Christians in the military ranks of the United States are gone (Rapture imminent? Be watching and waiting!). There is no mention whatsoever of the Church or Bride of Christ in Ezekiel 38-39.  As mechanized and electronically controlled as warfare is, people are still needed to make decisions, follow orders and ‘push buttons.’ Rockets, missiles, and artillery rounds don’t fire themselves, someone has to push a button to fire them. Someone has to take the order to fire them. Planes don’t fly themselves, someone has to fly them. Aircraft carriers and supporting carrier groups and flotillas require human coordination and planning. This can’t be automated. A carrier group from the U.S. can’t make it across the Atlantic theater and to the Mediterranean by itself. There is no U.S. presence in the Middle East.

The U.S., like Saudi Arabia, can only stand by and watch this movement come against Israel. Likewise, the U.S. complains and questions Gog/Magog’s motive for coming against Israel. Up until this point, politically and militarily, Russia was/is not viewed as an enemy or threat to Israel. All of a sudden, why does it look like Russia is going to invade Israel? Why all the troops and supporting supplies and equipment being brought near into Syria? The world views Russia’s move against Israel as a shocking surprise, not knowing Russia’s/Putin’s intent. Russia/Putin wanting to take Israel’s newest, prized possession worth $Trillions (a great spoil) by military force? Who heard of such a thing?! What idea got into Putin’s head? What is he thinking? Where did he get that idea? This prophecy is not about the United States. It is about Israel and God turning his attention back to Israel and coming to her defense against the gang of three bullies and their tag-along opportunists, cronies and toadies. As long as President Trump is in office, it is unlikely that his support of Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel will weaken. It is unlikely that the U.S. would do nothing to help Israel against her enemies. It is also unlikely the U.S. would be caught off guard by the impending forces on Israel. It is not hard to monitor a one million soldier army headed in one direction or another. In the event that the U.S. becomes aware of this threat, it could take considerable time for a carrier task force group to arrive in the Mediterranean Sea and perhaps arrive too late to help its ally. In any event, the U.S. just issues a rebuke thrown towards the Gog/Magog alliance. What is the likelihood for the rapture? No one knows. No one would be around to man (or woman) the ships and rudders, or fly the planes off of the carrier strike force.

Ezekiel 38:13

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Dedan = Ancient Saudi Arabia, Merchants of Tarshish are believed to be the ancient traders from European areas. ‘Young Lions’ are believed the ‘colonial-spinoffs’ from European economies, hence the ‘United’ States, Canada, Australia and so forth. This is the ‘best’ reference the Bible gives us to the US, and admittedly, it is a very indirect reference. It appears that God’s word is deliberate in omitting any reference to the US in Jesus’ Book of Revelation. This is agreed upon and confirmed by most eschatologists.

Consider what another Watchman discerns. Monday, January 18, 2021

Watchman Mr. Greg Laurie ‘All the More Urgent’

“This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).

I think we could make a very good case for finding Russia in Bible prophecy. I think we could make a pretty good case for finding China in Bible prophecy. And we certainly could make an airtight case for finding Iran in Bible prophecy—and Israel as well. But we cannot find the United States of America.

How is it that the reigning superpower on the planet today doesn’t seem to be mentioned?

No one knows the answer, but let’s consider an option. What if the Rapture were to take America out of its lead role?

There are approximately 328.2 million people in the United States. For the sake of illustration, I’ll round that number to 300 million. I don’t know how many are followers of Christ, but I read recently that 65 percent of Americans identify as Christians.

To be very conservative, let’s say that 10 percent of the people in the United States of America are Christians. Now, imagine for a moment what would happen if 30 million people (or more) suddenly were to leave Planet Earth in the Rapture—people who work in industries, government, the military, and every area imaginable.

Do you think that would affect our nation?

Of course it would. Effectively, America would collapse overnight.

I don’t know the reason our nation isn’t mentioned in Bible prophecy, but I do know this: Jesus Christ is returning. The Bible says, “This is all the more urgent, for you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed” (Romans 13:11 NLT).

If you’re a believer who’s living a compromised life, you need to repent and get right with God. And if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, then you’ve got to wake up and get right with God. Wake up. Jesus is coming. Are you ready?

By Joe Rao – Meteorologist livescience.com April 9m 2021

Three years from today, on Monday, April 8, 2024, more than half a billion people across North America will likely take a few moments out of their daily routines, and gaze up into the sky to get a view of one of nature’s great shows: an eclipse of the sun.   

And those who are fortunate to be positioned along a narrow path stretching across northern Mexico through parts of 15 (5+5+5) U.S. states, there will come the opportunity to what many have come to call the most spectacular of celestial roadshows — a total solar eclipse

Many readers certainly will remember “The Great American Eclipse of 2017.” That event received considerable media attention and rightly so. It was the first total eclipse of the sun to be visible from the contiguous (48) United States since 1979, the first since 1918 to go from coast-to-coast and the first total solar eclipse to be visible from the United States in the 21st century. And it was also the very first time in modern history that the path of totality was visible solely from within the confines of the United States and no other country.

A solar eclipse spectacle

It was an amazing experience for all who saw the sky suddenly darken to mid-twilight levels and with it, the sudden appearance of stars and planets in what only moments earlier was a daytime sky. 

Then of course, there was the incredible corona, the outer atmosphere of the sun, visible only during those precious moments when the disk of the sun is completely obscured by the moon. And in a few places around the moon’s dark limb, prominences — pinkish tongues of glowing hydrogen gas — were also evident. And as the first rays of emerging sunlight streaked past the rugged rough edge of the moon, a “diamond ring” was briefly created, signaling an abrupt end to “The Greatest Show on Earth.” 

But the best is yet to come. For as spectacular as “The Great American Eclipse of 2017” was, an even better eclipse is on its way in 2024.

“The Great North American Solar Eclipse,” which will start in Mexico, cross into Texas, then heads northeast into the Ohio River Valley, upstate New York, Quebec, Canada and New England, finally exiting the continent through the Canadian Maritimes. And it’s not too early to start making plans to see it!

A standout among total eclipses

Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the dark shadow cone of the moon — called the umbra — from where the spectacle of a total eclipse can be viewed, has swept across parts of the lower 48 states only 21 (7+7+7) times. The duration of totality for these eclipses has ranged from just one second (April 28, 1930) to an incredibly long 5 minutes and 20 seconds (June 24, 1778). The average duration of totality for all twenty-one cases comes out to be 2 minutes 12 seconds. 

For the eclipse of August 21, 2017, the maximum duration of totality lasted 2 minutes 40 seconds, which was nearly a half minute longer than the US average. 

But on April 8, 2024, the maximum duration of totality will last as long as 4 minutes and 26 seconds (over southwest Texas). That’s 135 seconds longer than the US average and 40 percent longer than the maximum duration of the 2017 eclipse.  

In fact, of the 21 previous totalities that have swept across the current contiguous US boundaries, only two surpass the 2024 eclipse in terms of duration of totality: the aforementioned eclipse of 1778 and the eclipse of June 16, 1806 (4 minutes 52 seconds).  This latter eclipse is famous for the observations made by José Joaquín de Ferrer, a Spanish astronomer who was the first to coin the term corona” for the halo of light that surrounds the darkened sun during totality, and by James Fenimore Cooper, who recounted his own experience witnessing this eclipse from Cooperstown, New York in an autobiographical vignette. 

The width of the totality path of the 2024 eclipse will also be exceptional: The shadow path for the previous 21 U.S. eclipses averaged about 93 miles (150 kilometers) wide. In 2017, it was about 71 miles (115 km) wide, but in 2024 the path of totality will be considerably larger, measuring 124 miles (200 km) across. 

A big audience!

Usually, the path of most total solar eclipses tends to have a perverse habit in sweeping over remote parts of the Earth or over wide stretches of ocean, and avoiding large population centers. Not so in 2024.  

In Mexico, the cities of Mazatlán (population 503,000), Durango (pop. 655,000) and Torreon (pop. 735,000) are within the totality path. In the United States, the largest population center will be Dallas, Texas (pop. 1.3 million), followed by Austin (pop. 951,000), Indianapolis, Indiana (pop. 864,000), Cleveland, Ohio (pop. 385,000), Buffalo, New York (pop. 256,000) and Rochester (pop. 207,000). 

And there are many other big cities such as San Antonio, Texas, St. Louis, Missouri, Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati and Columbus in Ohio, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that are less than a few hours’ drive from the zone of totality.

The largest city that will witness the total eclipse will be in Canada: Montreal, Quebec, (pop. 1.8 million). 

Interestingly, over the lower Ohio Valley, the totality paths of the 2017 and 2024 intersect.  On average, a specific geographic location is treated to a total solar eclipse approximately once every 375 years. But Carbondale, Illinois — which has christened itself as the “Eclipse Crossroads” city — will again experience totality in 2024, less than 7 years after having experienced the total eclipse of 2017! 

Weather prospects 

According to Canadian meteorologist Jay Anderson, who has spent many years researching the climatological conditions in advance of upcoming solar eclipses: “April is a month of transition across the continent, with winter storms gradually giving way to the convective buildups of spring and summer. In Mexico, the winter dry season is in its last month before the summer rains begin. Over the United States, southern parts of the track are already well into the thunderstorm season, while to the north, spring storms and occasional snowfalls still hint of the departing winter. In Maritime Canada, the last of the winter snow has yet to melt and fresh snowfalls are a threat with every weather system.”

The best probabilities of good weather are in Mexico, where cloud coverage ranges anywhere from only around 20%, increasing to right around 50% at the Texas border. In contrast to these conditions, the weather outlook across the United States is marginal, if not downright unfavorable. Climatological records indicate that average cloud cover increases from roughly 50- 60% in Texas, northeast to the Missouri-Illinois border, then jumps to nearly 80 percent at the Indiana-Ohio border. Near and along the Great Lakes, cloud cover drops back to around 60-65%, before again rising above 80% for Quebec, northern New England and the Maritimes. You can get more details at the Eclipsophile website here.

But even in the most pessimistic regions, one need only remember the famous aphorism attributed to science fiction writer, Robert Heinlein: “Climate is what you expect, but weather is what you get!”

Indeed, April weather in the United States and southern Canada is much more variable than in Mexico, so that at any location there is some hope of very clear skies on eclipse day. 

And as we get closer to that special day, Space.com will provide detailed coverage for prospective eclipse chasers, so mark your calendars and stay tuned!

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
