Was the Ominous April 8 Eclipse a Sign that Tribulation is at Hand?

David Martin | The Daily Knight

On April 8, a total solar eclipse 1 passed directly over six U.S. cities called Nineveh and over a town called Jonah, the prophet who warned of Nineveh's destruction. All of this took place under the constellation Cetus or "The Whale," alluding to the whale that swallowed Jonah. The eclipse passed directly over the unincorporated community of Rapture, Indiana, and also passed by "The Ark" in Williamson, Kentucky. Its path of total eclipse intersected the path of the August 21, 2017 eclipse over Carbondale, Illinois, which historically is known as "Little Egypt." 


In the Old Testament, solar eclipses served to give notice that a time of darkness or divine punishment was at hand as happened before the destruction of the Babylonian Empire. Many feel that the April 8 eclipse is a providential heads-up that The Great Warning is at hand, for during the Warning a darkness of spirit and a darkness of atmosphere will settle in a deadly quiet upon the world. It will be “a day of darkness, and of gloominess, a day of clouds and whirlwinds.” (Joel 2:2) It will be like a repeat of the Egyptian Darkness.

The time for the Warning is certainly ripe. Governor Abbot is now calling it "war" at the Texas-Mexican border amidst increasing cries of “war, and rumors of wars.” (Mt. 24: 6) We see revolution brewing in Europe and Putin threatening to nuke NATO nations, all of which portend to the coming intervention since we know the Warning soon follows the tempest of fire that breaks out in Europe and other countries.

April 8 Press Conference in Rome


Another interesting observation is that on April 8, DDF Prefect Cardinal Victor Fernandez called for an end of the Church’s age-old condemnation of homosexuality. Speaking at a press conference launching the DDF’s new text Dignitas Infinita, Fernández said it would be good if we could find an expression other than “intrinsically disordered” to describe the nature of homosexuality.  He denoted homosexual acts as simply not being able to “match” the “great beauty” of marriage between a man and woman, suggesting the possibility that homosexual actions have their own kind of “beauty.”

Shall God tolerate this?

Still another point of interest is that the April 8 eclipse occurred one day after the Feast of Divine Mercy. Christ told St. Faustina that the time of His Mercy would soon give place to a time of Divine Justice. Was the April 8 eclipse our sign that the time of Mercy has ended? Will Christ have mercy if Rome continues to encourage homosexuals to come to Church as they are?

True Human Dignity Needed


It indeed is time to think of our true human dignity, which consists in our being made to the image of God. We live up to this by keeping ourselves “unspotted from this world” (James 1:27) and not by allowing polluted affections to “take hold on you.” (1 Cor. 10:13) St. Paul reminds us “that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), has inheritance in the kingdom of Christ.” (Ephesians 5:5)


If Francis had any concern for human dignity, he would publicly decry homosexuality and expel all homosexuals from the Vatican. He would exhort LGBT people to regret their lifestyle and go to confession with the understanding that this is the only thing that can erase from their being the criminal affections that war against their true dignity. 


He would also remind everyone of the fierce punishment and destruction that befell Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality. The world today has become a sodomite merry-go-round with this corruption having penetrated every facet of society like a cancer. Even the elementary and pre-schools have been polluted with this shame, so simple common sense should tell us that the Warning is “nigh, even at the doors.” (Mt. 24:33)

1. A handful of socialist websites including Fast-Check frantically attempted to discredit the report about several towns called Nineveh being in the path of the eclipse, arguing that it is not 7 but 2 towns with that name that the eclipse passes over. The fact is that six towns called Nineveh were in the path of the eclipse. Three were under a total eclipse while the other three were under a semi-total eclipse, but all six were in the direct path of the April 8 solar eclipse.
