According to many astronomers and ministers alike, on September 23rd, 2017, there will be an extremely rare happening, one that has never before occurred in the history of the world. It has to do with the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign and a certain alignment of constellations and planets, along with the sun and the moon. Once this occurs, allegedly, the rapture of the church will soon follow. However, there are some major problems with this prophecy according to this video by Bible Flock Box. They are as follows:
The Bible Condemns Astrology: Using Astrology to predict any Biblical occurrence is looked down on by God according to Deuteronomy 18:10-12 and Jeremiah 10:2.
The Event Isn’t That Rare: Although many claim this particular astrological occurrence is super rare, the moon, the sun and Jupiter’s presence at least aren’t that rare at all.
John Wasn’t Talking About a Constellation: The Revelation 12 sign isn’t talking about stars. It is instead symbolic of Satan, Jesus, and the church. The woman represents the church, the child is Jesus and Satan is represented by the dragon. Therefore, a constellation can’t be the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 sign.
The Tribulation Will Happen Before the Rapture: All throughout the Bible, God helps his people through the tribulation, not from it. Therefore, why would God change and take his people to heaven in the Rapture before the Tribulation occurred? In the Bible, Acts 14:22 says, “…that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” This along with countless stories in the Bible show God is in the business of walking with his people through problems, hardships or tribulations, not taking them away from them. Christians will have to face the tribulation. Therefore, this occurrence can’t prompt the Rapture.
