The Great American Eclipse - What it Means for Us

Update: Within less than 24 hours of posting this, it's had almost 2,000 views and I've been getting in several incredible comments with added perspective that I would love to share. I have compiled some of these additional points and comments in a part 2 post on this blog. For those who have asked about sources for information in this article, all the sources are hyperlinked throughout the text and highlighted in yellow. The remaining source links for videos and other sites that were requested, can all be found in the comments section at the end of the article. Thanks for joining in on the pondering! 

Friday morning I woke up to the thought that I should play music while the kids eat breakfast. The next thought that came was that I should play "Walking in Memphis" by Mark Cohn. I found that sort of strange that a song that random should come into my mind to play.

The next thought that came into my mind was that I should ponder on the coming solar eclipse of August 21st. Ever since my husband ordered special glasses from Amazon so that we could all watch it, I have had a tugging voice to ponder about the eclipse. That there was something significant about it I was to learn. I kept hearing, "the sun shall be darkened"(Doctrine & Covenants 34:9).  For three weeks I had put it off, but Friday morning I found some time to ponder.

After dropping the kids off at school, the next thought that came into my mind was, "Do a YouTube search on it. There are people who have made videos about Biblical meanings behind the eclipse. Watch the videos you are guided to and tune into the Spirit for further instruction."

Even though I was rushing to get to the school and put on a Fun Friday for my 4th grade daughter's class and then a Fairy Tale Friday for my 1st grade daughter's class, I found a minute to connect the iPad to Bluetooth and listen to a video while cleaning the kitchen and scrambling to load my car.

The video began just as I had anticipated with a history behind how rare this event is, as well as other historical events connected to similar eclipses of the distant past. My ears tuned in when I heard the word "Memphis". This particular video pointed out that the Mississippi river divides the country with the city of Memphis on one side and the city of Cairo on the other. The narrator pointed out that it parallels the country of Egypt in which the Nile river divides the country with Memphis on one side and Cairo on the other. He pointed out that this region in the United States is known as "Little Egypt". I went to the Wikipedia to learn more about this area and learned that Little Egypt sits upon the verging point of two major fault systems, the New Madrid Seismic Zone and the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone. The Spirit told me to take note.

As the video continued on, it showed the path that the eclipse would follow and made a line across the map of the United States, then it showed the path that the following eclipse in 2024 will take across the United States. I saw that they crossed and formed an X. Immediately I heard in my mind, "X marks the spot." As I glanced at the clock, I saw that I soon needed to leave. I skipped on to a second video and got a second perspective. I noticed that both of these videos were referencing coming judgement on America with a Christian perspective. The Spirit told me to take note of many of the points but then I heard in my mind, "You are to take what you learn and factor in Mormon Doctrine. Plug in what you know, and fill in the blanks. Share what you discover." Yes, an LDS perspective on this was needed. I felt confirmation from the Spirit.

Soon I rushed out the door with my three-year-old to head off for a busy day of events that wouldn't allow me to return home until nine hours later. All throughout the day, I asked in my mind, "X marks the spot for what?" More than anything I wanted to get back home and continue to ponder and search until I had some answers. I had glanced so quickly at the map before I left, that I couldn't remember what states it crossed through. I had a feeling it was Missouri and Illinois. As I pondered about that I immediately thought of Jackson County Missouri  and many events and significant places in Missouri that are a part of LDS church history and prophecy. I knew there was something BIG about all of this and I could feel goose bumps confirming that from head to toe. I began to wonder who else was talking about all of this? Had others made the connection too? I had not heard anything about this eclipse related to scripture, prophecy,or signs. In fact, my 1st grade daughter's teacher isn't even taking her class outside to see the eclipse when it happens, so I am checking her out of school so she can see it. That is how important I believe it is. I had the thought to call my sister Crista and tell her about all of this. We hadn't talked on the phone in weeks and I wasn't even sure if she was aware of the eclipse.

A few hours before returning home, my sister Crista called me and said, "We need to talk about the eclipse." I couldn't believe it! I said, "YES WE DO!" I told her that the Spirit was speaking to both of us that day and there was something we were to discover. She told me that she felt the need to look up YouTube videos about the eclipse the night before and so she did. What she learned was so fascinating that she watched several more videos until 2:30 in the morning. I told her I had the same experience however because of time I had to pause my videos. It turned out we had watched different videos and because of that we learned different things. We exchanged what each of us had learned and we began to connect some dots.

After the kids went to bed I was able to sit at the computer and type up all the information I was learning as well as my own thoughts and feelings. I felt I was to make a video about my findings as well as write about it here on my blog. Truly, I feel that those who are in tune and ready to be given this information will be led to my findings. If you have found my video or this blog post, then I believe the Spirit is speaking to you also. You have eyes to see and hears to hear and you are ready to listen.

Though many videos you will find out there speak of parallels and connections to Judah, Israel, Egypt and Babylon prophecies, I want to focus specifically on what Mormon Doctrine can add to the table - it truly sheds light on something monumental!

First of all, what you need to know if you are not already aware: (These are the points the Spirit told me to take note of. Though I'm not quite sure how all the dots connect I do believe that once connected, they make one Amazing picture!)

1) Doctrine and Covenants 34:9

But before that great day shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon be turned into blood; and the stars shall refuse their shining, and some shall fall, and great destructions await the wicked.

I remember the most recent blood red moon. I woke my son up in the middle of the night when it occurred because he had wanted to see it so badly. Next week, I'll be checking my first grade daughter out of school so that she can see the total solar eclipse. My other kids get to see the eclipse with their class. These signs are a big deal. It's a once in a lifetime event. I want my kids to be able to tell their children what it was like witnessing them.

I am not sure about the stars refusing to shine, but I believe the sun and the moon prophecy have been and are being fulfilled. Revelation tells us that this is all "preparation" for the Lord's return. Preparation for what and who? The Earth must go through physical changes and be cleansed before the Savior comes. The Lord's Kingdom must be set up in righteousness to prepare for His reign which will usher peace onto this earth. As a part of this preparation, the inhabitants must also go through a cleansing process so that individually and collectively they are prepared to meet Him.

What does this preparation entail?  We learn from scripture that often times judgement was poured upon the wicked to chasten them. I believe that judgement occurs as a natural result of God's presence being removed. When His presence leaves, darkness reigns and has it's way. The Lord chastens those that He loves. Chastening is a form of preparation. When we are chastened, we are humbled, and when we are humbled we become prepared to hear the Word of the Lord, listen, and are willing to be taught. Many will be open to hearing and receiving the gospel because of this chastening process.

Dallin H. Oaks spoke of this preparation in his April 2004 conference address when he said,
Dallin H. Oaks

The Savior taught this in the parable of the fig tree whose tender new branches give a sign of the coming of summer. 'So likewise,'when the elect shall see the signs of His coming “they shall know that he is near, even at the doors”' (JS—M 1:38–39; see also Matt. 24:32–33; D&;C 45:37–38).

(D&C 88:88–92)

And angels shall fly through the midst of heaven, crying with a loud voice, sounding the trump of God, saying: Prepare ye, prepare ye, O inhabitants of the earth; for the judgment of our God is come. Behold, and lo, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Isaiah 1:27

Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

From Isaiah we learn that we are redeemed with judgement. I find this interesting. Through judgement Zion is redeemed. To redeem means to "retrieve, regain, recover, get back, reclaim, repossess, compensate." All that has been taken, ruined, and perverted by the wicked will be reclaimed by the righteous.

To sum up point number one, we must watch for the signs, recognize them, and continue our own spiritual preparation.

2) The Number Seven

The longest eclipses can give you totality of up to 7 minutes. The Great American Eclipse will last for 2 minutes and 40 seconds for those of us on the ground, however those observing from the air will be able to experience 7 minutes of totality. This Great American Eclipse will be followed by a second total American Eclipse seven years later. "Sheva", the Hebrew word for seven, comes from a root which means complete. The number seven represents physical completion.

Could the Lord be telling us that something will be completed by 2024 (the second total eclipse)? It is important that we pay attention over the coming months and years so that the Spirit can testify to us personally what the completion entails.

Recently the number 7 has played an additional symbolic role in the United States. On the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated, he was 70 years 7 months and 7 days old. 777. This during the Jewish year 5777.  This year 5777 is highly significant. The Feast of Trumpets 2016 to Elul 29 2017 is the Hebrew year 5777. 5 is the number of grace and the number 7 means perfection and repeated three times (the number 3) means completion. Therefore, the biblical numeric meaning of 5777 means: "perfect grace made complete" or "the completion of the period of grace." Could this mean the grace period of repentance? A grace period for the wicked? (I have not verified the math however these numbers are being reported as facts via several sources).

Donald Trump was born exactly 700 days before Israel became a nation. Israel was 77 days old exactly 777 days after Donald Trump was born. Israel’s 70th birthday will come exactly 700 days after Trump’s 70th birthday. Donald Trump won the election on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month and 7th day in office. Trump won the election by about 77,000 votes out of than 136 million ballots cast. The Electoral College to three states allowed him to win by the smallest number of votes: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.There again you have the number 3 (3 states) and 77,000 votes (7). Something is about to be made complete!

The Aug. 21, 2017 eclipse will occur just 7 weeks after aphelion and only 3 days off from perigee, meaning the Earth will be close enough to the Moon so that the lunar shadow falls on Earth's surface, creating totality. There is 7 and 3 again. The definition of totality is "whole".

3) "Signs in Heaven Above and in the Earth Beneath"

The X of both eclipse pathways, marks the spot for the sign of this completion. It is only speculation to say that the sign could be a great shaking of the earth. However, considering that the X lies on two major fault lines and the pathway of the first eclipse runs over many major fault lines from the west to the east, it's not something that is off the table. From what scripture teaches us about patterns of signs and events - it is clear that the Lord is telling us something. He is marking it with a big X so we will take notice.

If we look above into the heavens we see that Jupiter, due to its retrograde motion, will spend the next 9 ½ months within the womb of Virgo. This length of time corresponds with gestation period of a normal late-term baby.

Could this be a sign of the birth of something grand? After 9 ½ months, Jupiter exits out of the womb of Virgo ( September 9, 2017) and is caught up to the throne of God. Upon Jupiter’s exit (birth), on September 23, 2017, we see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it (the woman clothed with the sun). At the feet of Virgo, we find the moon. And upon her head we find a crown of twelve stars, formed by the usual nine stars of the constellation Leo with the addition of the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Just as Revelation 12:1-2 says.
This will mark the beginning of the Tribulation.

This great sign in the heavens on September 23, 2017  is a one time event. Rev 12:1-2 says it marks the start of the tribulation period. It is the 120th jubilee from Adam. It is the 70th jubilee since Canaan. It is the 40th jubilee since Christ's death. It would coincide with the 70th week of Daniel in Daniel 9. And interestingly, It marks 72 years to the day from when the first atomic blast was detonated, in 1945, and the project was code named "Trinity". It will be the only one in history to have Jupiter in her womb for the proper amount of time for a human gestation period or pregnancy.
The sign will happen on Sept. 23, 2017 on the exact same day as Feast of Trumpets.

The 2017 alignment has 3 wondering stars Venus, Mars, Mercury with Leo's 9 stars making up the 12 stars above her head.The movement takes the child to the throne of God. The constellation Leo represents the Tribe of Judah. At no time in history has this alignment of stars and planets occurred. Nor will it again (

To better understand the meaning of John's vision, in the New Testament Student Manual we read,

“And the dragon prevailed not against Michael, neither the child, nor the woman which was the church of God, who had been delivered of her pains, and brought forth the kingdom of our God and his Christ” (Joseph Smith Translation, Revelation 12:1–3, 7 [in the Bible appendix]).

These clarifications confirm that Satan will not prevail in his war against God’s kingdom on earth. They also teach that the woman represents the “church of God” and that the child she gives birth to is the “kingdom of our God and his Christ” (Joseph Smith Translation, Revelation 12:7 [in the Bible appendix]). The Church of God is at this time an ecclesiastical organization only, but when the Savior comes again and makes “a full end of all nations” (D&;C 87:6), the kingdom of God will also have political jurisdiction over all people on the earth. “The purpose of the Church is to prepare its members to live forever in the celestial kingdom or kingdom of heaven. … During the Millennium, the kingdom of God will be both political and ecclesiastical” (Guide to the Scriptures, “Kingdom of God or Kingdom of Heaven”;

Revelation 12:1. The Sun, the Moon, and Twelve Stars

We learn from latter-day scripture that those who inherit the celestial kingdom will receive glory like unto that of the sun (see D&;C 76:70). The image of “a woman clothed with the sun” may symbolize the Church’s role in preparing its members for the future glory of the celestial kingdom (Revelation 12:1). The “crown of twelve stars” upon the head of the woman likely refers to the Twelve Apostles who preside over the affairs of the Church under Jesus Christ’s direction (Revelation 12:1).

John also saw “the moon under [the woman’s] feet” (Revelation 12:1). Elder Bruce R. McConkie (1915–85) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles explained a possible meaning of this image: “As the moon shines by reflected light, so do all earthly churches and kingdoms. They are under, beneath and lower than the true Church. The highest eternal reward they can offer is the terrestrial kingdom, whose glory is like the moon. (1 Cor. 15:40–41.)” (Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3 vols. [1966–73], 3:517).

Revelation 12:3–4, 7–10. War in Heaven

These verses in Revelation 12 are a parenthetical reference to the War in Heaven. The dragon is a representation of Satan, who with his followers waged the War in Heaven against Heavenly Father and His faithful children (see D&;C 29:36–38; Moses 4:1–4). “The third part of the stars of heaven” (Revelation 12:4) are that portion of the hosts of heaven who followed Satan in the premortal war in heaven and were cast out (see Isaiah 14:12–17; 2 Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6; D&;C 29:37; Abraham 3:27–28). Elder Bruce R. McConkie described the conflict that occurred in heaven: “What kind of war? The same kind that prevails on earth; the only kind Satan and spirit beings can wage—a war of words, a tumult of opinions, a conflict of ideologies; a war between truth and error, between light and darkness. … And the battle lines are still drawn. It is now on earth as it was then in heaven; every man must choose which general he will follow” (Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3:518).

Back to Jupiter, it has been noted that there are similarities to Christ. It is the largest planet in the solar system, hence being called the "king planet" and representing the chief deity or the chief deity's son in a variety of ancient pantheons.  It is also covered in stripes just as Christ was after His flogging ("by His stripes we are healed") and has a prominent "wound" called the Great Red Spot that mirrors Jesus' own spear wound.  On top of all that, Jupiter takes all the blows from comets and asteroids that would otherwise hit earth (think Christ's atonement and taking the blows for us) and even more - Jupiter was recently photographed by NASA, which revealed that the planet is crowned with a magnificent glowing halo:

Jupiter's orbital period mirrors the biblical sabbatical and jubilee cycles and 2017 is the end of a Jupiter Jubilee. It was well known that Jupiter had 67 moons, but it was just announced in June 2107 that astronomers have positively identified two more.  That means Jupiter has exactly 69 known moons and the discovery was made just a few short months before Daniel's 70th Week might begin (

Other sources have noted what the sky will look like beginning in the month of September 2017 that will lead-up to the Great Virgo Sign of the book of Revelation 12. As a prelude to the astronomical alignment, the location on Earth will center on the Giza Plateau of the Great Pyramid on the dates of the 11th, the 20th and the 23rd of September. As in the sky in September, like Virgo, the Orion belt stars and Leo mirror the 3 Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in a similar fashion. What will be noticeably different and striking is that there will be some planetary alignments that suggest a message of sorts perhaps. The astronomical alignment perspective is also capturing the essence of how Egypt, the Pyramids, the Nile River and the Holy Land mirror the constellation of Virgo, Leo, the Milky Way and the Orion belt stars. It's noted that Israel typifies Virgo, the Sphinx typifies Leo (the Lion), the pyramids typify Orion (the throne of God), the Nile River typifies the Milky Way.

This reminded me of my earlier mentioning of Little Egypt in America and how it mirrors Egypt the country. Here is a great link from about astronomy in the scriptures. Also, here is a post I wrote in 2014 about the constellations testifying of the Savior (from an LDS perspective)

Did you know that every year in late August, you can spot Orion the Hunter and Sirius the Dog in the early morning sky! Orion’s three prominent Belt stars always point to Sirius. Did you also know that some have pointed out that Kolob might be Sirius and might be a derivative of the word "dog".

Proto-Semitic : *kalb

Arabic : kalb كَلْب

Hebrew : keleb כֶּלֶב

Ugaritic : klb

Ge'ez : kalb

Sirius has consistently been called the "dog star" since the begining of Mesopotamian civilization. The Assyrians called it Kalbu Shamash, "dog of the sun".

This is all very interesting but let the Spirit be your guide on what is truth. Some Heavenly signs are more noticeable, others you have to search, ponder, and pray for. It's amazing to see how many possible signs we can miss, when we aren't paying attention. 

4) America

In the past we see that total solar eclipses were key players in scriptural events and world history. It was a total solar eclipse (confirmed by NASA) that passed over the ancient city of Nineveh which prepared the people to be ready and willing to listen to the prophet Jonah who warned them of their coming judgement and destruction if they did not repent.

Jonah knew of their wickedness and he feared preaching to them. The Lord knew that the eclipse would cause wonder, curiosity, and fear among the people and He knew they'd be ready to hear Jonah. After Jonah's life was spared and he preached to the people, they received his message and repented.

Our modern day prophets have been calling us to repentance. Are we listening? If ever there were a mandatory time to repent this would be it. Truthfully, we never know when our last day on this earth will be. We should be prepared at all times to meet our Lord.

It was an August 21st total solar eclipse that passed over the beginning of World War I in 1914 and was visible in northern Europe and Asia. This Northern Europe and Asia involved war, signaled the fall of the German, Russian, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian empires.

Is the Lord sending a signal to America? Is it more than a coincidence that this solar eclipse is also going to be on August 21st?  In 1914 there was world war. It was significant because it was the first first world war in world history. When the Lord provides patterns it means "pay attention".

5) Missouri  

When I saw that the path of the coming solar eclipse, crossed over prophesied of and historical events in Mormon history and doctrine I felt the Spirit again say, "Pay attention."

Missouri is a significant place in Mormon doctrine. Not only is it the location of Adam-ondi-Ahman (the site where Adam and Eve lived after being expelled from the Garden of Eden and gathering spot for a meeting of the priesthood leadership, including prophets of all ages and other righteous people, prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.), modern revelation tells us it is the location of the Garden of Eden. If Missouri is where the Fall took place, could it be where Paradisaical restoration will begin? The Fall put the earth in a Telestrial state. Could the X mark the completion of that state? Is the Lord telling us to get ready for a brighter future?

Article of Faith #10

We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

As Latter-day Saints, we believe that Jackson County Missouri is where the New Jerusalem will be built. There will be Jerusalem in the Eastern Hemisphere which will be the capital of the Eastern Hemisphere and a Jerusalem of the Western Hemisphere which will be the capital of the Western Hemisphere.

The writings of Ether, written prior to 125 B.C., abridged by Moroni 2 in the Book of Mormon, prophesy of the preparations for the coming of the messiah and of a New Jerusalem in the Western Hemisphere. It is to be built by the remnant of the seed of Joseph of Egypt (Ether 13:3-10). Ether also speaks of the destruction of Jerusalem of old, adding that it will be rebuilt with a temple and become a holy city (Ether 13:11).

The future rebuilding of the Holy Land for the house of Judah and the building of the New Jerusalem in the Western Hemisphere for the house of Joseph are associated with the return of the Messiah to the earth. Of this era, the 1845 Proclamation of the Twelve (MFP 1:252-66) says: He will assemble the Natives, the remnants of Joseph in America; and make them a great, and strong, and powerful nation: and he will civilize and enlighten them, and will establish a holy city, and temple and seat of government among them, which shall be called Zion.

And there shall be his tabernacle, his sanctuary, his throne, and seat of government for the whole continent of North and South America for ever. It will be to the Western Hemisphere what Jerusalem will be to the Eastern

In President John Taylor's vision we read (Source: Wilford Woodruff’s Journal, June 15, 1878, “A Vision, Salt Lake City, Night of Dec 16, 1877”):
John Taylor

Immediately after I seemed to be standing on the left bank of the Mis­souri River, opposite the City of In­de­pendence, but there was no city. I saw the whole state of Missouri and Illi­nois and all of Iowa, a complete desert with no living being there. A short dis­tance from the river how­ever, I saw twelve men dressed in temple robes, stand­ing in a square or nearly so (and I under­stood it repre­sented the Twelve Gates of the New Jerusa­lem.) Their hands were uplifted in consecration of the ground and lay­ing the corner stone of the tem­ple. I saw myraids of an­gels hovering over them, and saw also an immense pil­lar of clouds over them and heard the angels singing the most heav­enly music. The words were “Now is estab­lished the King­dom of God and his Christ, which shall never more be thrown down.”

I saw people com­ing from the river and from the desert places a long way off to help build the temple and it seemed that hosts of an­gels all helped to get material to build with and I saw some of them who wore temple clothes come and build the tem­ple and the city, and all the time I saw the great pillar of clouds hovering over the place.

Instantly, however, I found my­self again in the taber­nacle at Ogden. And yet, I could still see the building go on and I got quite animated in call­ing on the people in the tabernacle to listen to the beautiful music, for the an­gels were singing the same music I had heard be­fore. “Now is estab­lished the King­dom of God and his Christ, which shall never more be thrown down.”

The "Yellow Dog" prophecy (whether you accept it's validity or not) also adds speculation to the X marks the spot location.

Heber C. Kimball

"The western boundary of the State of Missouri will be swept so clean of its inhabitants that, as President Young tell us, when you return to that place, there will not be left so much as a yellow dog to wag his tail. Before that day comes, however, the Saints will be put to tests that will try the integrity of the best of them. The pressure will become so great that the more righteous among them will cry unto the Lord day and night until deliverance comes. 

"Then the prophet and others will make their appearance and those who have remained faithful will be selected to return to Jackson County, Missouri, and take part in the up building of that beautiful city, the New Jerusalem."(Prophetic Sayings of Heber C. Kimball to Sister Amanda H. Wilcox, n.p., n.d., p. 6.)

Could it be that Satan knew the spiritual anointing this land had? Missouri is where the extermination order was given to kill all Mormons. It is where they received their harshest persecutions. Their plan to build Zion in Jackson County would be interrupted and delayed for years to come.

In D&C 105 the Lord tells the saints regarding the land of Jackson county,

27 And I will soften the hearts of the people, as I did the heart of Pharaoh, from time to time, until my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., and mine elders, whom I have appointed, shall have time to gather up the strength of my house,

28 And to have sent wise men, to fulfil that which I have commanded concerning the purchasing of all the lands in Jackson county that can be purchased, and in the adjoining counties round about.

29 For it is my will that these lands should be purchased; and after they are purchased that my saints should possess them according to the laws of consecration which I have given.

30 And after these lands are purchased, I will hold the armies of Israel guiltless in taking possession of their own lands, which they have previously purchased with their moneys, and of throwing down the towers of mine enemies that may be upon them, and scattering their watchmen, and avenging me of mine enemies unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

In D&C 57 the Lord tells the Saints,

1 Hearken, O ye elders of my church, saith the Lord your God, who have assembled yourselves together, according to my commandments, in this land, which is the land of Missouri, which is the land which I have appointed and consecrated for the gathering of the saints.

2 Wherefore, this is the land of promise, and the place for the city of Zion.

3 And thus saith the Lord your God, if you will receive wisdom here is wisdom. Behold, the place which is now called Independence is the center place; and a spot for the temple is lying westward, upon a lot which is not far from the courthouse.

4 Wherefore, it is wisdom that the land should be purchased by the saints, and also every tract lying westward, even unto the line running directly between Jew and Gentile;

5 And also every tract bordering by the prairies, inasmuch as my disciples are enabled to buy lands. Behold, this is wisdom, that they may obtain it for an everlasting inheritance.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began purchasing property in Independence in 1904, eventually acquiring nearly 20 of the original 63 acres.Today the corner stones still mark this special location. Prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, a magnificent edifice—the New Jerusalem Temple—will be erected on the location of the Temple Lot.

6) National and World Events

The eclipse next week will go down as the first total solar eclipse whose path of totality stays completely in the United States since 1776. Remember, in 1776 America became a nation. We see a pattern here happening for the path staying in the United States, could we see a pattern relating to the events? In 1776 America began, could there be another beginning on the horizon, on this continent?

As we pay attention to world events that are taking place we will see many dots connect. With the United States ready to defend our lands from threats of North Korea, we could see events take place that bring upon the fall of the North Korean regime. This could signal an open door for the gospel to be preached to the people of North Korea - a land that has been forbidden for decades.

The United States and South Korean joint military exercises are due to begin later this month on August 21st. I believe the Lord has heard the cries of the people of North Korea and He is ready to bring salvation, because they are ripe and ready to receive it. The late Kim Clement prophesied 7 years ago that North Korea's dictator would die before attacking the U.S and be brought down from the inside. He said there would soon be a United Korea.

The United States is turning back towards God, through tearing down corrupt policies and removing corruption from government. I believe there is a large underground group of corruption that is ripe for exposure and judgement. Over the next few years, I believe we will see these groups, organizations and people exposed and brought forward to be tried for their crimes. Those who stay under the radar will face tough consequences at the Lord's return.

Could these next seven years bring in final fulfillment of the remaining awaited signs? It's no coincidence that our current president is working very speedily to fulfill His campaign promises. I believe He was chosen for this reason. Did you know that the name Donald means "mighty chief of the nations" and Trump means "Trumpeter" so you have a "Mighty Trumpet for the Nations". He is definitely not a quiet leader. The world hears his message loud and clear. I believe God chose him for this reason and for this purpose. After all, God doesn't choose the qualified, he qualifies the chosen. God needed a leader who wasn't a puppet to any political party and didn't answer to the dictates of men. I believe while God uses him to subdue the nations, and restore America back to a Christian nation, God will also do a work and a wonder on our president's heart and his overall character. We will see a transformation of this man, and of our nation.

During this winding up of last day events, things will speed up as we have never seen before. If you pay attention to just how fast things are happening - that in itself is a sure sign that the day of the Lord is near.

I believe that the Lord is already on the earth helping prepare for His glorious coming and reign of peace. He is working behind the scenes on so many things that we can't begin to comprehend.

7) The Number 21

My sister brought to my attention that President Monson's birthday is on August 21st. He will be 90 years old. Again, I don't believe in coincidences.

According to numerology, the number 21 symbolizes new opportunities for new directions (Could this nation be headed in a new direction with new opportunities? Could this effect the Church in which new doors will open for amazing opportunities?)

 According to the gematria reference identities of the Bible Wheel, (Ehyeh, I AM) = 21. The number 21 is equal to the name of the Lord. (Could the Lord be reminding us that He is in control? He is still on the throne, and these signs testify of Him?)

According to biblical references, the number twenty-one symbolizes the great wickedness of rebellion and sin. After the children of Israel left Egyptian bondage they had 21 major rebellious events as they traveled and wandered the wilderness (Could this also be a sign for the wicked and rebellious that now is the time to repent?)

On the last day of God's seven-day Spring festival, the 21st of the month of Nisan, the Eternal carried out his last judgment against the Egyptians. He drowned Pharaoh and his entire army in the Red Sea as they were pursuing the Israelites in order to make them slaves again.

The last day of God's annual Fall Feast of Tabernacles, which occurs every year on the 21st day of the seventh Hebrew month, pictures the end of Christ's 1,000 year reign on earth when the devil is loosed out of his prison for a short time.

In 2 Timothy 3 the apostle Paul writes of 21 sins which show the exceeding wickedness of self and sin. He begins the chapter with a warning and then starts his list with the words "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will . . ."

  1. Selfishly love themselves
  2. Love money
  3. Brag quite a bit
  4. Be proud of themselves
  5. Blaspheme
  6. Disregard and disobey their parents
  7. Not be thankful for what they have
  8. Reject being holy
  9. Will not have natural affection
  10. Uncompromising
  11. False accuse others
  12. Lack any self-control
  13. Fierce
  14. Hate anyone who does good
  15. Betray others
  16. Will act Hard-headed
  17. Will have exalted, selfish views
  18. Love pleasure
  19. Reject loving God
  20. Will look from the outside as being Godly
  21. On the inside they will deny God's power (2Timothy 3:1 - 4)
Paul advice to Timothy is "turn away from all these." (2Timothy 3:5)

Seven is perfection and whole, and 7 x 3 = 21. Remember, three sevens (777) equals completion. Could this represent the completion of a period or era?


Upon ending this post I realized I had seven points written out. That was not intentional on my part. I can't help but chuckle a little.

Though time will tell what these next seven years bring, I do believe it will be a period of great rejoicing for the pure of heart! I believe we will see amazing things comes to pass, that we may have never expected in our lifetime. We will see doors open up, gifts magnified, Divine encounters increase, and miracles in abundance.

For the hard hearted (even among our own members), I believe it will be a time of chastening and humbling.

Clearly, the Lord has a message for North America, the Church, and the entire body of Christ - and clearly we are being prepared for something big. We can only speculate what these signs mean and what they will bring, but one thing we can know for certain is that we have living prophets and apostles on the earth today who guide us. We have access to the Holy Ghost who can be our constant companion in helping us discern for ourselves what is truth and what is right for us. We have scripture that can be our compass and prayer that is our daily direct communication to God. We have all the tools we need to navigate the coming days and years and I have complete confidence and faith that we will rise above any challenges the world may bring, and shine bright for the Lord.

GTOBoomer said...

Very interesting. As a Jewish convert to the Church, and having lived in Israel over a long period of time, your "Jewishisms" are pretty good. I disagree, however, with the idea that Kolob may refer to the word "dog" and therefore the dog star. Since Kolob is written in English, it's impossible to know which "K" sound the word uses in Hebrew. There are several. But the first syllable is probably 'kol' which means 'all' or 'fullness.' The B in Hebrew is soft without a dot in the middle and becomes 'V.' With a dot in the center of the bet, it becomes the hard B. The 'ob' sound in Kolob is probably 'av,' which means father. Kobob probably means "Fullness of the Father," not celeb, which means dog.

Can you tell us what the first video you hit on was called? Can you give us a link? Would like to watch. Thanks! JF ��

Lindsey said...

I can't seem to locate the first two videos I watched. There are so many videos out there with similar information (thumbnail images) but with different spins and perspectives. I will say that the videos I watched were focused on the "gloom" aspect and had apocalyptic undertones and background music. I felt to go a different direction from the Spirit. :)

Brandon Brooks said...

You really lost me in the first little bit. Cairo Illinois is nowhere near Memphis Tennessee and they are on the same side of the Mississippi river. There is also no wikipedia article for Little Egypt, but Southern Illinois is referred to as Little Egypt in Wikipedia, but that has nothing to do with Memphis. And my goodness, where are your sources for any of this. Saying you can't find the videos is a bit odd. You have a youtube history. I can find every youtube video I have ever watched on there. I am unable to take any of this very seriously as you do not provide sources for any of your claims. How can I study it out in my mind and heart if I cannot follow what you did. Correction: I can listen to Memphis by Mark Cohn. But that's about all I can do. And although I have several friends who say they feel the spirit every time President Trump speaks, I have the exact opposite feeling. I'm grateful that you shared your experience. I firmly believe that sharing is an important part of testimony. I just wish I could follow along.

Lindsey said...

@Brandon Brooks, It’s okay – no worries. There are many similarities I was drawn to. Cairo Illinois is on the East side of the river in which the Ohio River becomes a tributary of the Mississippi River directly south of Cairo, Illinois,. Memphis Tennessee is on the West side of the Mississippi. Just like I said, they mirror directions (the opposite) of the city location in Egypt with Cairo Egypt being on the West side of the Nile and Memphis Egypt being on the east. Similar as both are on the biggest river of each nation. The Nile runs all the way through Egypt and the Mississippi just about runs all the way through America. Memphis Tennessee and Memphis Egypt both contain pyramids (which may seem silly to some but got my attention for a spiritual connection to Egypt and America especially pertaining to the Passover). Little Egypt has nothing to do with Memphis TN or Cario IL (these were two different points), but these city comparisons to Egypt and the fact that the name “Little Egypt” is on the epicenter of the X, again drew my attention to learn about the connection of America with Egypt (spiritually & symbolically). There’s so much more I learned after the fact, but didn’t want to overwhelm the article (sources below). There is also a Cairo Missouri and a Memphis Missouri. These two cities are 1 hour and 36 minutes apart. Cairo Egypt and Memphis Egypt are 1 hour and 35 minutes apart. Memphis Missouri is on the West side of the Mississippi vs. Cairo Illinois on the east side of the Mississippi branches off the Ohio river. I was more interested in the Memphis TN location rather than Memphis Missouri since it’s right near the river just as in Egypt. Here is the link for Little Egypt in the Wikipedia. This is the link that led me to Southern Illinois. This is how the Spirit works with me. To me, these similarities are fascinating and prompt me to learn more. The Lord knows me and knows how I think. To others these points may not be fascinating at all – and that’s okay  My YouTube account is logged in on every device in our home, so I share it with a family of 6. I simply didn’t have the time the other night to go through so many videos, however today after searching through a history of 112 videos (embarrassing to admit) I found them. There are many similar videos I watched with music and images, but here are the exact first two I spoke of.

Another interesting thing to consider is this. 9 1/2 months may be an overdue baby by the world's standards but it's is a perfectly timed baby based on God's timetable. Conception to birth is exactly 9 1/2 months. When a preganany is timed from a missed period it is 9 months and when I was timed from the last period it's 10 months. But truely from conception to birth is 9 1/2 months. Fascinating stuff!

Jake P said...

The Bible, The Book of Mormon, and the D&C, make references to trials and tribulations commencing at the sound of a Trump or Trumpet. I believe this refers to our current president, one such scripture states,"and the trump of God shall sound both long and loud." Just another connection I made when trump was entering office. Thank you so so much for posting this, I felt the spirit very strongly while reading:)

Jake, yes I actually read that scripture while writing part 2 of this post and the same thought crossed my mind when I read "long and loud". I too felt that confirmation. Thanks so much for sharing! 😊

Have you read any of the 8th chapter of Amos in the old testament. Verse 9 tells of an eclipse Amos 8:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day." This eclipse takes place during the noon hour for the Mountain Time Zone while it is over the middle of the country. The verses in Amos before and after this one has to do with the end days. Verse 7 is excellent for it speaks of the tribe of Jacob. Most members of the LDS church are from the lineage of Jacob. I like what it says about us and it brings me comfort that the Lord is pleased with us. Amos 8:7 "The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works."

Kim said...

Thank you for taking the time to compile all of this information for us. So much to think about and ponder.
Just a little side note:
In your third point, fourth paragraph, you stated that September 23,2017 marks 49 years to the day when the first atomic bomb was detonated. That math does not add up. If I did the math right, it would be 72 years plus a month or so...

Lindsey I enjoyed your article. I have also studied numbers and planetary cycles as well as studied the last days for 50 years. I have learned that 3 is the witness number and 4 is the number of judgement. 7 is perfection and seeking truth as well as service. 21 adds to a 3 and is a witness to judgement which i don't think will occur until late 2020. 2020 adds to a 4 as well. God gives nations 400 years before he destroys them. Joshua destroyed Jericho after 400 years. The Mayflower Compaq was signed Nov 11th 1620. 400 years from then is Nov 2020. The first 7 years starts Aug 31st 2017. The next eclypse is April 2024. I believe we will be in Missouri by then. I also studied the cycles of planets. Pluto enters the sign of Aquarious in 2023. Key words are freedom. Melchizedick Priesthood, Sudden changes different and bizzar. In the past the planet pluto entered the sign of Cancer in 1914. It entered the sign of Leo in 1939. WW2. Germany invaded Poland. Jumping ahead in 1984 it entered Scorpio. Aids. Then in 1995 it entered Saggitarious Windows 95. International expansion and growth. In Jan 2008 Pluto moved into the sign of Capricorn . Key words construction. We had the bank problems. 2023 is also 200 years from when Pluto started the cycle in the sign of Aries. That was the year Joseph Smith meet Moroni.

Second Coming of Christ - No One Knows When
The Second Coming of Christ is plagued by many false teachings. Prediction books have even been written picking the exact day of Jesus' return. These books may sell many copies, but they mislead their readers. There's one guarantee: As soon as someone predicts the day or time of Jesus Christ's second coming, that prediction is wrong. Why? Simply, only God the Father knows when it will be -- Jesus doesn't even know. Jesus told His disciples:

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father... Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with the hand mill; one will be taken and the other left... Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come" (Matthew 24:36)

Thank you for the time you put into this. The points you've made are very interesting and many have crossed my mind the past couple years as I have been researching a lot as well. You're on point and I appreciate the dots you've connected here for many to see. This eclipse as well as the upcoming one in 2024 have intrigued me for awhile now. Many of my peers think I am crazy when I bring it up and expressed my desire to be back home in Idaho for its viewing. I know we are being shown something significant here and that there are many tribulations and blessings ahead of us in the next few years. What an exciting time to be alive and on the earth!!! May we all repent, act in faith and turn our hearts and minds to the Lord, Jesus Christ. :)

In my research tonight I came across this blog as well and will share it here as the author has made a fascinating discovery and drawn some interesting parallels with the term Salem.

I find that the 2024 year discussed is also an election year that falls into the possibility of fulfilling the seven king sequence noted in Revelation 17:10-11 where the 'principle of substitution' is accomplished by the deceptive act of staging a fake resurrection as noted in Revelation 13:11-15.

Arianna Lea Nyswonger said...

I think that Trump was called upon by God, this is because that the world is making it seem like everyone is hating him, it is obvious that we will never go back to what was before Clinton (Bill) and the globalists HATE him. So, knowing that he is hated so much especially when Obama did much worse and so did previous presidents, I don't think that any of this is a coincidence. We must remember that even if he ushers in the tribulation, doesn't mean he is bad nor does it mean that the devil is inside of him. I don't know, I do think that this isn't a coincidence.

I also have been feeling like the next 7 years are tribulation... I am not the prophet so I don't have any clue, I can only go off of what promptings tell me. Plus... I have been hearing of how so many people have that they will see Christ come again in the second coming in their PB. Mine says "I seal you up in the morning of the first resurrection, a queen in the Lord's kingdom..." Now I don't know if that means I will die and be resurrected to live physically in the Millenium, or if it was talking about me receiving my endowments (which was February 27, 2017)... All I know is that either I will see Christ or I will be resurrected in the first resurrection to live on earth... I am sick and I know I won't be getting married or having kids in this period of time, however I am told that I will be a mother and that I must keep my body holy so that others may receive their holy temples. So, not sure. Sorry I am rambling I should go to sleep its 5am

Khaden Pettingill said...

Great blog. I would like to share one additional insight about the intersection point of the eclipse. I'm just copying this from my blog and pasting it here:
The lines of the two eclipses makes an X through the US. The intersection of the two eclipses happens at Cedar Lake IL (an actual lake, not the name of a town), which is located in the Trail of Tears State Forest, in the heartland of America. The "Trail of Tears” is the name of the infamous deadly march forced upon several Indian tribes from 1830 to 1850, removing the Indians from their traditional lands and forcing them to live on reservations located in Oklahoma; and the name symbolizes all the scattering and abuses of the American Indians by the Gentiles. Its name now marks the spot that symbolizes the reversal of fortune prophesied by the Lord in 3 Ne 16 and 21, in which the Gentiles will be trodden down and the land will be given to a remnant of Jacob as their inheritance. The letter X is a symbol for a chiasm. The chiasm that is being represented is “The first shall be last and the last shall be first”. This will be fulfilled with a remnant of Jacob, who were first given this land, but lost it to the Gentiles, will lastly be given this land again as an inheritance.

Khaden Pettingill said...

I also like what you said about 7 years and grace period as a time of repenting for our nation. I want share this addition insight to support that.

In 1776 a solar eclipse took place during the same year our nation was born.

This is the path of that eclipse. In that year the USA was just 13 small states, but its was as if God was declaring to the earth the land which he has set aside for the United States to possess and have dominion of.

We read in the scriptures that covenants or cursings pronounced on groups of people usually last unto the "third and fourth" generation. Back in 1776, the average life expectancy was about 40 years. Today in 2017 people live to be 80+ years. Given the advances in healthcare that have taken place since the Revolutionary War, the average life expectancy between then and now is a little less than 60 years.

2017 - 1776 = 241 years
241years/4 generations = 60.25 years/generation

If a generation is measured by 60 years, 4 generations have passed since we declared independence.

In 1776 a nation was founded under God. God acknowledged that nation and gave this land to that people. He gave this land to the United States based on a promise He made previously to ancient inhabitants.

And he had sworn in his wrath unto the brother of Jared, that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them.
And now, we can behold the decrees of God concerning this land, that it is a land of promise; and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall serve God, or they shall be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them. And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity.
For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off.
And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done.
Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written.
(Ether 2:8–12)
The way I see it is that the United States has a lease from God on this land. The duration of that "contract" last 4 generations and can be renewed, or the inhabitants must be vacated so that the land can be given to another people who will honor the terms and conditions God has enacted. The terms and conditions are the Book of Mormon, and if you are a gentile, you need to comply with the conditions that Jesus Christ has laid out for you in 3rd Nephi chapters16-30, or you will have no promise or hold to this land and be swept off.

I'm gonna make a couple points ..
#1 was in subject 1 ... Where it states the stars will refuse to shine and some will fall from the sky ... It is the largest metor shower of the year this weekend.. the same weekend as the eclipse
Just something to think about
Also the scriptures say (I can't think of the reference right now) but it says in the great day of reckoning the great trump shall sound ... Everyone has thought of a litteral trumpet .... Who knew someone NAMED TRUMP would be running the nation .. also note his family name was originally drumf .. was it cosmic spitual reasons it was changed ?? Who knows ...

Also the last eclipse was in karaville Utah.. which is exactly the MOUTH OF KOLOB

Just some extra food for thought I love this article ...

PS I also go the most amazing photo of Jupiter in vergos womb last night!!! Email me and I'll send it to you

Great read, thanks! If I may share, perhaps there's something to think about that is overlooked when carefully reading the scripture Matthew 24:36 that says; "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Look/read how it teaches specifically, and is limited to the "day and hour". Else why would Christ and His mouthpieces urge us to study and know the signs of the times? Don't the scriptures have patterns that teach us that Christ wants us to be prepared physically and spiritually for his coming? I testify of this. Couldn't it be true then that perhaps we may know the season, and or the even year, and or even the month, and or even down to the very week of His comimg? Again, if we look for types and patterns in the scriptures, there are many examples. For instance, weren't the more righteous people found in 3rd Nephi at the time of destruction of Christ's coming GATHERED on Holy Ground round about the Temple? Would this indicate/teach us they knew the signs of the times down to within the days? But not the specific "day and hour"? Perhaps this is something to search, study, ponder, think, and pray about?

Alaris said...

Hey thanks for the blog! A couple of months ago I blogged on the 9/23 sign that I believe the mark the end of the time of the gentiles and the ascension of the latter-day King David who receives a heavenly crown. I believe this marks the beginning of his ministry. The adversary was ready to devour the Christ-child 2,000 years ago and will also be ready to devour the man-child in Revelation 12. This may help explain why being a white male is about the worst thing you can be to the left and will soon may be the basis of an adversarial attack on God's people. Below is a link to my 9/23 article - have a read! :)

Rebekah said...

I just want to quickly address something "Anonymous" addressed. If you look carefully, the scripture says, "No man knoweth the day or the hour...," but if we are wise, we CAN know the year. All we must do is be aware there is no rainbow in the sky, though conditions should produce one.

“The Lord hath set the bow in the cloud for a sign that while it shall be seen, seed time and harvest, summer and winter shall not fail; but when it shall disappear, woe to that generation, for behold the end cometh quickly” (Smith, Teachings, p. 305).

“I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, ‘In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not come; but there should be seed time and harvest during that year: but whenever you see the bow withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant’” (Smith, Teachings, pp. 340–41).

My name is Patrick. Thanks for the share. This was interesting. I can be reached at

I came across this thought and it seemed pertinent to share. I have not attempted to verify every idea in it.

"Earth is the only place in the solar system where a moon can perfectly mask the sun. By "coincidence" the sun is 400x larger than the moon but also 400x farther from the earth. That makes the 2 appear exactly the same size in the sky. Anything different and the moon would pass as a black dot across the sun or would completely cover the sun, not allowing us to see the sun's corona."
In Spanish corona means crown. How appropriate is that! There is no coincidence in the size of the sun, moon or earth. Tomorrow's eclipse is a marvelous example of the perfection of the creation of our universe by Jesus Christ Himself. This makes me even more excited to see the eclipse and feel the power from on high.

I was reading in Mormon Chapter 6 this morning about the destruction of the Nephite nation. The destruction is confirmed by Mormon in chapter 8 which is 401 AD at the bottom the page. 400 years since Jesus was born and the sign was given and the Nephites were Wow!

Just wanted to add a little bit more number information that I discovered. 1776, the year of the last american solar eclipse, was 241 years ago. If you add 2 + 4 + 1 you get 7. If you add the numbers from 1776 you get 21, which is 7 x 3. There sure are a lot of 7's in here. Significant?

Something to look into also, that might have some meaning. From NASA website: "Asteroid Florence, a large near-Earth asteroid, will pass safely by Earth on Sept. 1, 2017, at a distance of about 4.4 million miles, (7.0 million kilometers, or about 18 Earth-Moon distances). Florence is among the largest near-Earth asteroids that are several miles in size; measurements from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and NEOWISE mission indicate it’s about 2.7 miles (4.4 kilometers) in size.

“While many known asteroids have passed by closer to Earth than Florence will on September 1, all of those were estimated to be smaller,” said Paul Chodas, manager of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “Florence is the largest asteroid to pass by our planet this close since the NASA program to detect and track near-Earth asteroids began.”

Could be interesting to ponder.
