A Bright and Hopeful Future2 min read

Hello everyone!

I try to stay up to speed on current events and prophecy, and I’ve come across quite a few interesting things! I have had a few requests to compile my sources, so I thought I’d do that here and include my commentary.

These items are great topics of study, but to summarize, I am going to share about two solar eclipses happening this year. These two  solar eclipses will pass over 3 sites significant to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Please note: I’m not making any predictions, I simply find these findings interesting, and I take comfort in knowing that God is there, that He is aware of us, and is sending signs of His coming as He said He would.

Aug 21, 2017 Passes Over Adam-ondi-Ahman

The first event in Fall 2017 is a solar eclipse that passes over Adam-ondi-Ahman, one of the most sacred places on earth. This location is where Adam once met with all of his righteous decedents, and will one day meet with them again! It is also the site of many meetings between our Savior Jesus Christ, our Heavenly Father, and various Church leaders from the past and present.

Here is a map of the path of the solar eclipse, which travels through Independence Missouri and then on to Adam-ondi-Ahman. For your convenience I marked it’s location with a red star below:

Aug 21, 2017 Passes Over "7 Salems"

Interestingly enough, the eclipse is occurring on the Hebrew holiday, Teshuvah. The word means “repentance,” or literally, “to return.”

Another interesting eclipse will occur 7 years from this one on April 8, 2024, which is the last day of the Hebrew ecclesiastical year. The last one was nearly 40 years ago, so it’s surprising to have another so soon. This next one, as you can see below, passes directly over the the Kirtland Temple and the Hill Cumorah.

These two solar eclipses intersect fairly close to Independence Missouri, but there is really no way to know what it means. We can speculate, based on what ancient Jewish traditions say about them, but to learn about that you will need to check out my post on Revelations 12.
