    I am reading in lots of NEWS and Channels,that the coming September 23 is a kind of solar (or )Lunar eclipse which I am not exactly sure,but how is this constellation arrangement of Virgo and Leo Fulfilling Revealation 12,I obviously think It is just a wrong and false assumptions of many christians around,As God clearly says ,be not deceived with the warning from the nature and things,But If it is a fullfillment of Revealation 12,How?? Please logically and with respect to the theological and apologetical study on this chapter 12 of Revealation,Please explain me the same,If it Is just a false assumption,Please say so

    You are wise not to be taken in by false claims. Jesus said NO ONE knows the hour or the day that the Son of Man will return on.
    So it follows that all predictions are in error and can be ignored.
    have a look at an astrominers comments on this:-
    Are the Stars Lining Up on September 23 for the Lord’s Return?

    It's nonsense. The sun and the moon will be in the constellation Virgo at that time, but that is something that happens every year. This diagram summarises the theory, but the theory contains several errors (the constellation Leo has more than 9 stars, for example):

    Hello saint. All good :)

    "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (John 14:1-3)

    We will never know the day. Only God does.

    Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. (Matthew 25:13)

    "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Matthew 24:36)

    Traditionally rev 12 can be interpreted as the woman - Mary - giving birth to Jesus or the church 'birthing'.

    Dragon and demons v angels and michael, which eludes to satan taking 1/3 of heavens angels with him. Satan losing - loser - and thrown to earth.

    Rev 12 has already happened. Its hard to try and say where we are on revelations time line. There does seem to be a great falling away in the west however there seems to be many countries such as africa, china and brazil experiencing a boom.

    Greetings, Kirthika.

    Interpretations of the Book of Revelation vary wildly, but as @_-iconoclast-_ stated, the opening verses of Chapter 12 have already been fulfilled. The woman is Israel, the Dragon is Satan, and the Man-child is Christ Jesus. Verses 6-17 are set to be fulfilled in the end-times, but only after the Antichrist betrays the covenant that he will make with the nation of Israel in the middle of the seven year's peace.

    In other words, it will be a LONG time before the fulfillment of the middle and last part of Chapter 12 comes to pass, so set your mind at ease. September will come and go with nothing happening, and then those who bought the lie will settle back down until some other wild prediction gains in popularity again. So just ask the Lord to educate you in the scriptures, so that the next time some baseless theory arises you won't be swept up in the currents like the rest.

    God bless, and may the peace of God keep you.

    "No one knows the day or the hour, not even the Son or the angels" Kirthika. Prophetic ministries can only point to the imminent return of the Lord (I prophesy that way too). But none of us know the precise moment of His coming. So just be ready :). God bless :).

    It is just one more example of the endless American obsession with trying to predict an imminent end of the world. Like all of its myriad predecessors, it can safely be ignored.
