The earth shall quake before them;
the heavens shall tremble:
the sun and the moon shall be dark,
and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
He is therefore not predicting something about our future but the future of his audience at that time.
The book of Joel actually gives you an idea when it’s prophecy will be fulfilled.
And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
your old men shall dream dreams,
your young men shall see visions:
This prophecy was fulfilled when Peter said this at Pentecost.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
So you see the last days Joel predicted were in Peter’s days.
What then did Jesus mean by the “sun moon and the stars”?
Let’s read these 2 passages.
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:
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
When you put these two passages together, you will clearly see then”sun moon and stars” is the nation of Israel.
It fell in AD70.
So. The world is not going to end is September 2015.
The process that led to the end world began when Jesus died.
For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
It ended in AD70.
We are living in a world that began again from there.
So please. If you believe the world will end on 15th September 2015 wouldn’t kindly transfer all your belongings to me and date your transfer of ownership on 16th of September 2015.
I’ll gladly pay the legal fees. Thank you.
