As we are all well aware from social media and the events already taken place, The solar eclipse was the first in the sequence to take front page news on August 21, 2017. This plays a huge role in the systematic path of a prophetic passage in the Bible. Now before you jump to conclusions and automatically pre-judge this article because it is Biblical, take a deep breath and open your mind. There have been many signs of unusual activity in the government, the weather, social issues, and foreign affairs. It almost seems as if every year we progress on the timeline but fall back short when it comes to the economy or social issues.
Hurricane Harvey made his appearance in the Atlantic Ocean on August 25, 2017 and it started flooding on the 26th. Most of you are probably thinking to yourself, “what am I even talking about?” just sit back and let me do all of the thinking for you.

Luke 21: 25-26
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.26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.” This passage is called the Olivet Discourse because Jesus was sitting with his disciples on the Mount of Olives opposite the Temple when he delivered it. In this last section of the discourse, he gives an explanation, tells a parable, and announces a warning about his the Second Advent.
The interpretation I get from this Bible verse is extremely identical to what is playing out right in front of our eyes. Most people use the argument, ” It is Hurricane Season, global warming and the Bible have nothing to do with this.” This Bible verse does not just solely state the weather changes, but also signs in the sun, moon, and stars. We just had an extremely rare solar eclipse that probably will not occur for another 50 years. On top of that phenomenon, NASA has continued their investigation on the planet Mars.
As you are reading this article there are currently 3 more hurricanes that are brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, back-to-back-to-back. The sea levels have already been on the rise and the nations are going to be anguished by the tossing sea. The bible verse states, ” People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world.” If we interpret this part of the Bible verse we could turn to social media. Although people are literally not fainting, you can see the emotions these events are causing people by what they put on the internet. People are literally in shock, and have no idea what they are supposed to do. Victims from hurricane Harvey in Texas have nothing to go home to. All of their hard work, sacrifices, and dignity where washed away from the devastating flood.
