The Hope of Glory – Pete Garcia
This is a great read for all of us as we move ever closer to what sure seems to be the Revelation 12 Sign. A fantastic article, balanced and hopeful… just like how WE should be! Thank you Jan Markell for sharing this and thank you Pete Garcia for writing it! I am encouraged to know that many of the debunkers are reading these words and those of us who truly believe that this sign on the 23rd of this month is an alignment straight from the Book of Revelation should do the same.
In the article Pete lays out a fantastic defense for the legitimacy of the sign (read the article) but then balances it out with the following words of caution:
The negatives than are that some will be convinced that something will absolutely have to happen on September 23rd. If September 23rd comes and goes without anything major or significant changing, many who planted all their hopes and dreams on that date will become disillusioned and drift away from the faith. Those who are not Christians will inevitably use this as simply one more thing they can pin on those “wacky” Christians who are waiting for a Messiah who will never come.

If you missed it, we shared another one of Pete’s articles back on June 19th.
Thank You Pete Garcia from The Omega Letter!
My Personal Thoughts On This Topic
For me, the possibility of the rapture happening very near the fulfillment of this sign is very logical for many different reasons. We even have a precedence to look at which I think we should pay attention to:
When Christ was born, the Star of Bethlehem seems to have aligned directly with His birth. That is why when the Wise Men showed up from many miles away, Jesus was already a toddler! We also know that Noah had plenty of warning up until the day the door of the ark was closed. So for me, I am advising people to watch the coming days leading up to September 23rd very closely and expectantly. Why discount the possibility that it could happen on that day until time proves us wrong???
But IF we get to the 24th and beyond, be very careful not to let your guard down…. do not even think about doing that! God has gotten our attention for a purpose and I don’t think He is in the business of creating these grand announcements for no reason. I don’t know how this will all play out, but I truly believe if we stay close to HIM and focus on HIS PROMISES, we will not be caught unaware.
In closing, I personally believe that we are very close now. I just can’t get around it. So from here on out be HOPEFUL!! Be JOYFUL!!! And be READY!!!! One of these days He is coming…and there is plenty of reason to think that we are very close to that glorious day!
