"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:  and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night:  He made the stars also" (Gen. 1:14-16).

On day four of Creation, God spoke, and the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars appeared in the sky.  For centuries, men believed the Earth was the center of the Universe, that is, that the Universe rotated around our planet.  But, in A.D. 1543, Nicolaus Copernicus published his theory that our solar system revolves around the Sun; his theory was called "Copernican Heliocentrism."  Today, his theory is accepted as scientific fact. 

And yet, in a way, one could say that the Universe does "revolve around the Earth."  Notice in the verses above, that God created the celestial bodies specifically for life on Earth.  They tell creation when it is day or night, and when the month, the seasons, and the years begin.  He has provided them to guide mankind's travels. 

He has also used them as miraculous events, such as having the Sun "go backwards" (Isa. 38:8), blocking the Sun for days (Ex. 10:22), the "star" at the Birth of Christ (Mt. 2:1-11), and even the darkness at His Crucifixion (Mt. 27:45).  And, according to the Scriptures, He will also use the heavenly orbs to warn mankind of coming prophetic events (Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20; Rev. 6:12).

I do not have the space to explain them here, but recently, believers have discovered that two constellations, Virgo and Leo, are about to match the description of the woman in Revelation 12:1-5.  The nine stars that form Leo, will be joined by three of the "wandering stars" (planets) in the sky.  At the same time, the location of the Sun will be within "her garments," and the moon will be located at "her feet."  And, the "King of Planets," Jupiter, will be located where her "birth canal" would be; it will be traveling "downward" toward the constellations "feet."  This Mid-Tribulation event is due to occur in September, 2017!  Counting backward three and a half years, puts the beginning of the Tribulation in March of 2014! That means the Rapture of the Church will happen sometime between this very second, and next March!!!!!!!

You don't have to believe these things to be saved.
You do have to believe that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again to save you!
