Signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars, Part Nine
By Bob Maffit
God bless you! I am sorry that it has taken so long to get to you with an answer to why we missed it on September the 23rd. First I would like to say that I could not do this myself, because of my physical disabilities. Therefore, my daughter Brandy is keying this in for me. I do not want to make excuses, but due to my physical body, the pain I have been experiencing, and the lack of time I had to put all this together, I missed a few things. I am sorry if this has caused anyone any problems in their lives. I have been mocked and scoffed at for giving you a date. Well, I say this with complete honesty in my heart my intentions were honorable. Every question that anyone has thrown at us here at Living Love with Jesus was answered. We answered the questions that no one could know the day, time or hour, and that it could come like a thief in the night, yet I am still getting that thrown in my face. I will say no more about the scoffers for now. Instead, you need to understand why I missed it.
For those of you who think you know me well, you do not. I am a 100% Service Connected Disabled Veteran. I lost the use of my right hand, and lost my left leg while in the Army. Because of this, I can only type with one finger on my left hand. I hid this for my entire life while in other ministries; because I did not want people to think my faith was weak. Please understand this; it takes a long time for me to key in my work. So, right now I am thankful for my daughter keying this in for me.
I had full intentions of coming home from a visit with family in Indiana in June and devote full time to writing what should have been a book, but that did not happen. On my way home, while visiting someone, I was knocked down, and landed on my shoulder. I broke the bone in my upper arm in three places, and crushed the top of my shoulder. My problem has been the pain. At first, I could only work for a short period of time, and then would have to take pain medicine, and would have to go to sleep. The pain medication messed with my mind, so I could not always think clearly. So, after a week or so, I only took the medications at night to sleep. I wanted my mind clear from the medication in the day time, but the pain also made it difficult to think. Therefore, my writing was much slower than I wanted.
Once I had completed Part One, I was thrilled with what was in the Word, but was surprised that my webmaster would not post my article on the Living Love with Jesus’ website, because the person disagreed with the title of the article. The person never even read it, and refused to ever read it, all because of the title. This put me in a real tough spot, because we now had no one with the knowledge to post articles to the website. Therefore, I had to stop writing, and learn how to do it, which slowed down my writing, and keep in mind, this is all happening right after I broke my arm.
With all that has happened, I did not have the time to write all that I have learned, and had to leave some things out. Then, after I wrote an article, I was also the one that had to post it. All of this took time away from the Word, which lead me to missed details. Again, I am sorry. Now, let us see what we can do to see what all we have missed.
I know we made a mistake in saying the Rapture was going to happen, and that all of us Christians would be out of here at the latest of the twinkling of an eye on the night of September 23rd when the Great Sign of Revelation 12:1 and 2 was in the heavens. We do not feel that we were entirely wrong, as we know that was the GREAT SIGN, and we also believe that something happened the night before [biblically the same day] at the last trump at the Feast of Trumpets.
We have SCRIPTURES to look at, as well as the Great Sign, which followed. Not only that, but things in the heavens have been doing things like they do not normally do, and I am not the only one seeing these signs! We have witnesses around Michigan and in other states who have seen what is happening in the stars, and with the Moon. I do not know exactly what these moving stars are doing, or what it means, but it all started the night before the Great Sign! Stars have not only been moving around, but have been flashing, going dim then bright like someone is playing with a dimmer switch! They have also been sparkling in ways we have never seen before, and many red stars [normally only Mars is red]! Again, what does this all mean, I do not know, but I wonder if there is a war going on in the heavens, because from the Word, we Christians are going up, when the Angels that turned against God will be getting hurled to the earth! I think the Adversary is getting even nastier as the time for him gets closer to an end, as well as the rest of those that have only a short time left! That is why I feel these stars doing things out of the ordinary is God’s way of telling us that things are about to get bad, since it started after the last trump, and the twinkling.
As we said before, Jesus Christ fulfilled the spring Feasts at his first coming. We feel he has to fulfill the fall Feasts with us. If nothing happened as many contend, then Christ cannot fulfill the fall Feasts this year. That cannot be possible, with the Great Sign. I will explain more as we go along on the Great Sign. We still believe Christ appeared and raised the Christians that were dead, and maybe still in the process of raising them all up. I would like you look at these verses below:
1 Thessalonians 4:13–15 (NIV)
13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14 We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
This section of Scripture is referring to the Rapture. Many have wondered why it states that, “…God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” Many Christians think it is because the dead are up in heaven with Jesus, but that is not so! WE at Living Love with Jesus believe this is showing us from the Word of God that there is a length of time between the gathering of the dead, and the gathering of the living! We believe that since there are so many dead Christians from over the last 2,000 years that it may take this long for the Lord Jesus to gather all the dead. Now, let us look at the next verses in this section of Scripture:
1 Thessalonians 4:16–18 (NIV)
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that [or afterwards], we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them [previous dead Christians] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage each other with these words.
The dead in Christ get raised first! There is TIME in between! We believe it is this entire week leading up to the Feast of Atonement [Yom Kippur]! In case you have forgotten, let us review the fall Feasts.
Rosh Hashanah: Awake! Resurrection!
Yom Kippur: Mourning!
The Feast called Rosh Hashanah [Feast of Trumpets]. This is when modern Jews are expecting the Messiah to come. In their calendar, it is the year 5778. They believe this is the year that their Messiah will come, and I agree, but they will get the antichrist, instead of the TRUE Messiah. This is the only Feast which starts on the first day of the month, Tishri 1st. The theme of the two day Feast was the awakening of the dead, or resurrection. We believe the dead in Christ have been, or are still in the process of being raised from the dead. Rosh Hashanah [Feast of Trumpets] started on Tishri 1st at 6 P. M., which is September 20th this year. It went for two days, until September 22nd at 6 P. M. Let us discuss events to follow, as it will help in the overall understanding of this topic. These are given from a Jewish perspective, and so I am leaving some stuff out. Keep in mind that the Jews do not believe Jesus was, and is the Messiah. I would have to write a book to cover it all, and we do not have that kind of time. September 22nd at 6 P. M. through September 29th at 6 P.M. [Tishri 3rd–9th] are Seven days of Awe; a time of intense self-examination.
On Tishri 10th [September 29th, starting at six P. M.], Yom Kippur begins [Day of Atonement]. The reason for mourning is that the Christians will all be gone into heaven, and the Tribulation will begin, once all the Christians are gone. I have more to say here, but let us look at the 3rd fall Feast first.
The third Fall Feast is Tabernacles [Booths], and starts on Tishri 15th [October 3rd], five days after Yom Kippur. They were commanded to rejoice for seven days. They made temporary structures [booths] to live in during the Feast. We will have a temporary home in heaven for about 7 years while the Tribulation is taking place!
We need to look back at August 21st, 2017, the great American eclipse of that day. This was spectacular if you were right under it. That was a Monday afternoon. We saw that its path went through the heart of the USA. I want to add that for the Jews, this was the start of Teshuva. This is a 40 day period before Yom Kipper, when the people are to examine their hearts, and get right with God [40 is the number for trial and testing]. I think that would be a cool thing even for Christians to know. Forty is a multiple of four, God dealing with man on the level of the senses. That was on the Hebrew calendar of the month of Elul, which is the month of Repentance! The eclipse was a 40 day warning, which takes us to the Day of Atonement, and a Day of Judgement, when God judges the nations. On August 21st the solar eclipse just happened to land on the 1st day of Elul, which is the very beginning of the month of Repentance, which leads us to the Day of Atonement. So, as we can see from history, on this same day, the 1st of Elul in 763 B.C. which is when the solar eclipse passed by Nineveh. There are no coincidences with God! For when the solar eclipse happened in Nineveh it was a warning for them to repent! And so we can see that this was a warning for the U.S.A. to do the same [the rest of the world needs to repent as well]!
The 40 days is not only a warning, but E.W. Bullinger taught that the number 40 is a divine order applied to earthly things. The number four alone is God dealing with man on the level of the senses. So therefore, God is dealing with mankind warning them on the level of the senses with the sign of the eclipse to repent! REMEMEBER, we need to look back at August 21st, 2017, the great American eclipse of that day. Also for the Jews, this was the start of Teshuva. This is a 40 day period before Yom Kipper, when the people are to examine their hearts, and get right with God, so I believe that this applies to the U.S.A, because of the history from Nineveh, as well as other places. As I wrote before, eclipses always start on God’s appointed times. I would like to add, that though this was a sign directed at the U.S.A. it is a sign for the entire world that Jesus is about to Rapture the Christians, and if a person wants saved, and not have to deal with the WRATH TO COME, to call on the name of Jesus, and be saved!
It is amazing to me that in the next about 7 years the second solar eclipse does another mark across the U.S.A. and it does it on the 1st of Nisan, the Hebrew religious New Year’s. Again, that is showing that eclipses happen on holy days! We should have seen that God would wait until the warning period was over before Rapturing the living Christians.
We have other reasons why we believe we made a mistake. I had been taught by Doctor Wierwille, and others too, that Christ’s star in the heavens [the Bethlehem Star, or his star] marked the day of which Christ was born. I do not believe that to be true, after examining all the events in the stars on the 23rd of September. I realize now that it could not have been thee day, but to announce that he was coming! Both events would have been announced earlier than the actual event of the births! The terrain in Israel is so inhospitable that the people of that time, would have needed advanced notice to be able to witness Jesus being born, or within hours of his birth. Let us look at these verses again, and go a little further, so to see what was missed!
Revelation 12:1 and 2 (KJV)
1 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: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
This is the Great Sign in heaven that we saw on September 23rd. I want you to know that you can search 1,000 years in the future, and will never see that alignment ever again. So, it has to happen NOW! The problem was she had not yet given birth! She is in pain, and wants to be delivered! More happens after these verses! Let us look at the next verse:
Revelation 12:3 (KJV)
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 verse has not happened yet! And has to happen before the baby is born, and that baby is us Christians. We have been watching and believe the baby will come out tomorrow September 29th, or the 30th. I missed a verse that my daughter Brandy found, and read to me, and made me realize that there is no way, that the living at least, could have been Raptured on the 23rd of September! Let us look at that verse, but we are going to look at it in the NIV.
Revelation 12:4 (NIV)
His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
This is what I really missed! She was ABOUT to give birth! It cannot be far off! We should have never thought the baby was to be born at the time of the Great Sign! This is my mistake, as I was taught that the Bethlehem Star marked the day of his birth, and therefore the Great Sign that appeared on September 23rd would also have to mark the day of the birth of his Body [the Church], but now we see that each of these two signs of births would have to be announcements of coming births.
The Red Dragon is probably something that we will only be able to truly see with our own eyes looking up towards the heavens, as I said in Part Five, the Red Dragon [Nibiru] is partly hidden in Google Sky with a black box covering it, and all the other programs it seems it has been removed all together, as if it does not even exist! Look at these photos below. The first photo is of what we can see now, but only in inferred and as you can see, and we showed you before, that there is that little black box covering the Red Dragon. Please do not stop reading here! We have new photos along with photos you have seen before! Please take a look!
As this shows above, something is sticking out from behind the black box! As you can see from the upper left hand corner of the photo above this is from Google Sky. The black box is on their stuff, and the government’s. Now let us look at a photo of the constellation Virgo from a historical map of the constellations.
If you look at this map above it shows a star mark that we circled in black for you to notice, as something is, or has been there before. This old map is also from Google Sky, as you can see. We would like to show you a photo of the two maps above overlapping one another. One, for you to see where this all comes from, and the second, is an up close to see what you are looking at better. If you look, the star marks on the old map they line up perfectly with the Google Map with the black box! See photos below.
In closing, I am sorry if we in any way messed up anyone’s life, because of saying that the Rapture of the Body of Christ was to happen on the day of the Great Sign on the 23rd of September. Christ has to fulfill all the of Feasts, therefore, I humbly submit that we should be gone before October the 1st .I doubt very seriously that we would not be with him by October the 3rd, the Feast of Tabernacles, where we believe the temporary booths of the past times, will now be a temporary homes in heaven with the Lord!
God bless you all, and this time for real, see you in the air, Bob Maffit
