Sun and moon signs of the end
Picture the sun and moon signs as if they are the “face” of God (cp. Eccl. 12:1-2). Darkened sun and moon signal angry God and bodes ill for enemies (Isa. 13:9-12). Bright Sun and moon signal happiness and bodes well for His people (Isa. 30:26). In the New Heavens and Earth we know God “face to face” (1Cor. 13:12) so the light of the sun and moon are no longer required (Isa. 60:19-20. Rev. 21:23).
God’s wrath is coming, that’s written in the sun and moon signs:
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matt. 24:29-30 NKJ)
Jesus left the stars out of the sun and moon signs (Isa. 13:9-11. Ezek. 32:7) because the wrath of God falls upon them first. Stars symbolize angels (Job 37:7. Judges 5:20. Rev. 1:20). Satan’s angels in heavenly places (Eph. 2:2; 6:12) will fall like leaves from a tree (Rev. 6:13). They are the “powers of the heavens” that will be shaken (Mt. 24:29). Then the sign of Christ’s coming will be seen, “heaven opened”. Through it Christ and His armies ride to Armageddon (Rev. 19:11).
At that time the LORD will punish the heavenly forces in the heavens and the earthly kings on the earth. (Isa. 24:21 NET)
4 All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll; All their host shall fall down As the leaf falls from the vine, And as fruit falling from a fig tree.
5 “For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; Indeed it shall come down on Edom, And on the people of My curse, for judgment.
6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, It is made overflowing with fatness, With the blood of lambs and goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, And a great slaughter in the land of Edom. (Isa. 34:4-6 NKJ)
This happens after the Great Tribulation of the Church after most are martyred, and those yet alive then raptured (Rev. 14:12-16), at the Seventh Bowl. First Satan’s ufo fleet is destroyed, then bombardment of his forces at Armageddon. Then Christ and His Angels finish it (Rev. 16:16-21; 19:11-21).
9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, To lay the land desolate; And He will destroy its sinners from it.
10 For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not give their light; The sun will be darkened in its going forth, And the moon will not cause its light to shine.
11 “I will punish the world for its evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, And will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, A man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. (Isa. 13:9-12 NKJ)
