This is DAY THIRTY of the daily devotional.
I am releasing a 50 day daily devotional about the end-times as revealed in Scripture. Along with the text, I will be providing a video where I cover the text of the day, and @verbal-d will be providing an audio version of it. That way, whether you want to read, watch, or listen, you'll be able to enjoy this study as you wish.
The plan is to release this devotional over the next 50 consecutive days, but life may "get in the way." We will do our best, but please be patient with me if I fall behind.

DAY 30 - DARK SUN AND BLOOD MOON - Part 3
Allowing scripture to interpret scripture clearly reveals that both the “Abomination of Desolation” and the sun being turned into darkness and the moon into blood will occur before the “Day of the Lord” begins. Interestingly, the pretribulational view paints an entirely different sequence of events.
First, they must believe that prior to the beginning of the “Day of the Lord,” (and their “The Tribulation”) “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood” (Joel 2:31).
Then, during “The Tribulation”, “… the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;” (Revelation 6:12b) as a result of the sixth “seal judgment.”
Next, at the fourth trumpet, “…the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise” (Revelation 8:12).
In the pretribulational view, though we are told twice that such an event will occur prior to the “Day of the Lord”, and though five options exist for this major event being recorded in Scripture, none of the five options could actually be that particular event.
Point #1: A major sign preceding the “Day of the Lord” is given to us by both Joel and Peter.
Point #2: When we use God’s phrase the “Day of the Lord”, to reason through eschatology, our job as Bible scholars becomes much less confusing.
Point #3: Very similar events of such magnitude would have to occur four separate times in order for the pretribulational view to be correct.
Point #4: Scripture clearly gives us many signposts and indicators of the events that will soon occur, including Christ’s coming and God’s end-time wrath.
If anyone is really interested, I did post the entire volume through an alt account over a year ago. I did so as an experiment to see how hard it would be for a new user to get noticed on steemit, so I didn't let anyone know that I was doing it. You can click here to a post that has links to the entire 50 days of this devotional if you really want to read ahead. That information has always been available there since I first posted it. It is not the purpose of this series to just copy all of my previous work, but instead to transform it into some new outlets by releasing it in an audio and video format, to broaden the reach that this work has.
Again, though I will certainly never claim to know it all, I do believe that many are being lead astray by some popular beliefs. I hope that this project will be able to help many others understand the end-times more accurately. Thanks!
