Let now the astrologers, those who prophesy by the stars,
Those who predict by the new moons,
Stand up and save you from what will come upon you.
Behold, they have become like stubble, fire burns them;
They cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame.
(Isaiah 47:13-14; NASB)
So, is the August 21 solar eclipse an omen of portending judgment, destruction, repentance or revival? Those who think so will probably find what they are looking for in the days ahead. However, I am confident we will get a much better sense of the future and God's will for our lives by prayerfully reading our Bibles, listening to the Holy Spirit and letting Jesus be our example and guide. As my friend, Myles Holmes, says, "Keep your eyes on the Son, not the sun, moon and stars."
