FALSE PROPHECY ALERT: The So-Called ‘Great Sign’ That’s ‘Happening’ On September 23rd Is 100% Not True

In order for September 23rd to "usher in the Second Coming", you would have to cram into the next 5 days the Rapture of the Church, the rise of Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and all the other events associated with the first 3.5 years of the time of Jacob's trouble, otherwise known as the Great Tribulation. Chances of all that happening in the next 5 days? Absolute zero.

In order for September 23rd to “usher in the Second Coming”, you would have to cram into the next 5 days the Rapture of the Church, the rise of Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and all the other events associated with the first 3.5 years of the time of Jacob’s trouble, otherwise known as the Great Tribulation.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” Revelation 12:1,2 (KJV)

As Bible believers, we understand that God wrote the Bible dispensationally. Paul’s command in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) to all Christians to “rightly divide” the Scripture is one of the many ways the Holy Spirit verifies this to us. For example, the Scripture quoted at the top of this article takes place in the time of Jacob’s trouble after the Rapture of the Church. Doctrinally, it cannot be applied to the Church at all. It is prophecy of of a yet-future event, this is what we mean by being dispensational and rightly dividing the Bible.

Now that we’ve laid the groundwork, let’s examine the latest false prophecy, made my Bible teachers who are woefully ignorant of Paul’s command to “rightly divide” the Bible. I am talking of course about the upcoming ‘Great Sign’ prophecy which is set to take place on September 23rd, just 5 days from this writing. In these claims we are told that September 23rd will usher in events leading to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I will show you in this article why that is impossible.

So let us look at the verses in Revelation 12 and see how they fit doctrinally:

  • THE WOMAN REVEALED: Revelation 12 introduces us to a “woman” that Catholics claim is Mary, but is not. This “woman” is the nation of Israel in the time of Jacob’s trouble, and guess what? It was prophesied all the way back in Genesis. Revelation 12 says this – “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” What is that a reference to? It is a direct reference to Joseph’s dream in Genesis 37 where he dreamed the following – “And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?” Joseph’s dream was only partially fulfilled when he ruled Egypt, it will have its complete prophetic fulfillment in the time of Jacob’s trouble. Add to that the last words of Jacob to his 12 sons which began with “And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” in Genesis 49: 1 and you will have perfect harmony.
  • THE WOMAN PERSECUTED: During the time of Jacob’s trouble, Israel will endure tremendous persecution after they wake up and realize that they have been following the Antichrist. She, Israel, will cry out for deliverance. “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”
  • SATAN TRIES TO KILL THE WOMAN: “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” This is the Devil, in all his unholy glory, as the Leviathan he was in Job 40 and 41, now preparing to “drown the woman” with an actual flood of actual water. Please compare this verse “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” with this verse from Job 40 “Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.”
  • THE WOMAN FLEES TO SELAH PETRA: As we have already taught you in our article entitled “The Real Meaning Of The Word Selah As Found In The King James Bible”, Israel will flee to the Red Rock City for Divine protection from Satan. God brings her there supernaturally just as He did miracles for Israel in the desert in Egypt – “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” You will notice carefully the length of time the Holy Spirit says the woman will hide there – exactly 3.5 years (for a time, and times, and half a time).

Now, you will notice in all of the references I have just given you, not a single one of them applies in any way, shape or form the the Church. It is all about the “woman”, the nation of Israel. Where is the Church? Why, we have been in Heaven ever since the Rapture which happens in Revelation 4.

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1,2 (KJV)

In order for September 23rd to “usher in the Second Coming”, you would have to cram into the next 5 days the Rapture of the Church, the rise of Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast and all the other events associated with the first 3.5 years of the time of Jacob’s trouble, otherwise known as the Great Tribulation.

Chances of all that happening in the next 5 days, the next 50 days or even the next 500 days? Absolute zero.

But now that you’ve just learned something your church never shows you, Bible doctrine, let me tell you what you should be ready for on September 23rd. You should be ready in the next 5 days for the Rapture of the Church to take place, for it can happen any day from today. It could even happen today.

YOU’VE MISSED THE PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, NOW WHAT?

If you are not saved, then you will miss the Rapture and be left behind to deal with Antichrist. If you are saved, and haven’t told anybody about salvation in Jesus Christ, then you will get Heaven but lose rewards the at the Judgment Seat.

On September 23rd, 2017, approximately 250,000 people will die and leave this Earth, and you could be one of them. A quarter million people die everyday. Live each day as if it was your last day on Earth, because one day it will be.

“only ONE life, ’twill soon be past…and ONLY what’s done for CHRIST will last”.

Are YOU ready for what comes next?
