On Aug. 21, approximately 25,000 U.S. troops will join "tens of thousands" from the South Korean military to conduct a "major military exercise" that is already triggering threats from North Korea. Considering the fact that any sort of provocation could cause a nuclear war to erupt on the Korean peninsula, is this really a wise thing to do? The more research that I do on this upcoming solar eclipse, the stranger things become. When I first started hearing about this eclipse many months ago, I didn't pay too much attention, but now after looking into it extensively, I do believe it is going to be quite significant.
And I didn't even know about this major military exercise that will happen during the eclipse until today. The following comes from MSN:
The U.S. military is preparing to launch a major military exercise with South Korea in coming days, and faces a dangerous balancing act: How do you reassure allies in the region that you are ready for a war with North Korea without provoking an actual conflict in the process?
The annual Ulchi-Freedom Guardian exercise is scheduled for 10 days beginning Aug. 21, and will include about 25,000 U.S. troops along with tens of thousands of South Koreans. The exercise focuses on defending South Korea against an attack from the north, and each year triggers threats and rebukes from North Korea. But it comes at an especially sensitive time now, following the exchange of a series of threats between President Trump and North Korea.
Another thing that we just found out is that meteorologists are warning that a major hurricane could potentially start approaching the east coast of the United States during the time of the solar eclipse. It has been almost 12 years since a major hurricane made landfall in this country, and so it is very odd that this would be happening all of a sudden.
As I have discussed previously, many believe that the upcoming solar eclipse and the 40-day period that follows may be some type of "warning" for America. And traditionally, this 40-day period has been a time of repentance for the people of Israel...
On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will mark a trail from the northwest U.S. to the southeast Atlantic seaboard. The eclipse will occur on the last day of the Hebrew month Av, a day known as Yom Kippur Katan, the "small day of repentance." The morning after the eclipse, Jews will begin blowing the shofar every morning for a 40-day period of profound repentance leading up to Yom Kippur. This corresponds to the 40 days Moses was on Mount Sinai atoning for the Jewish people.
It is also very interesting to note that this eclipse comes exactly 33 days before the "Revelation 12 sign" that will appear in the heavens on Sept. 23. The first state that the solar eclipse of August 21st will cross will be Oregon, and many have noted that Oregon is our 33rd state. And the solar eclipse will finish crossing the nation on the 33rd parallel in the state of South Carolina.
So is that just a coincidence?
It might be.
Another extremely interesting fact is that the very first large city that the path of the eclipse will cross is Salem, Oregon. Of course, "Salem" is short for "Jerusalem," and it turns out that the path of the eclipse will reach Salem at just about the same time that the sun is setting in Jerusalem.
Seven years after the eclipse on Aug. 21, another one will cross our nation in 2024. Together, the paths of those two eclipses will mark a giant "X" directly over the middle part of the country. And amazingly, the combined time of the totality of those two eclipses will be seven minutes.
And this eclipse is just the beginning. Over the subsequent 40 days, there are quite a few critical events that people are buzzing about. The following list comes from one of my previous articles...
August 23 – A FEMA exercise known as "EarthEX2017" will simulate "catastrophes such as mega earthquakes, cyber terrorism or high altitude electromagnetic pulse attacks"...
An exercise sponsored by FEMA and the U.S. Department of Energy set to take place on Aug. 23 called EarthEX2017 will wargame responses to catastrophes such as mega earthquakes, cyber terrorism or high altitude electromagnetic pulse attacks.
The exercise will simulate a "subcontinent-scale, long duration power outage, with cascading failures of all other infrastructures," according to the official Earth Ex website.
"Black sky events" are defined as "Catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees."
Sept. 1 – This marks the start of FEMA's annual "National Preparedness Month."
Sept. 11 – This will be the 16th anniversary of 9/11.
Sept. 20 – Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset.
Sept.21 – The U.N. International Day Of Peace
Sept. 23 – This is the date of what has become known as "the Revelation 12 sign". If you are not familiar with this alignment yet, the following is a very brief summary...
On Sept. 23, a unique astronomical alignment of the sun, moon, constellation Virgo, constellation Leo and planets Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Venus is going to fulfill this passage from the book of Revelation:
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.
Sept. 24 – Very important national elections will be held in Germany.
Sept. 29 – Yom Kippur begins at sunset, and it concludes on Sept. 30. Of course, Sept. 30 will be the end of a 40-day period that began back on the day of the great American eclipse on Aug. 21.
Sept. 29 – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says that the debt ceiling will be breached on this day if Congress does not raise it by then.
Sept. 30 – If Congress does not pass a budget by the end of this day, there will be a government shutdown just like we witnessed in 2013.
And all of this comes at a time when anger, hatred and racial tension are reaching a fever pitch in this country.
Let us pray for peace both at home and abroad, because at this moment, we are rapidly approaching a boiling point.
