2017 & 2024 Solar Eclipse

The 2017 & 2024 solar eclipses that form a Tav (mark) across the face of America

This is written informally, like a diary.

Timeline: Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017

I have friends over to pray for Donald Trump. (See “Storms Bill, Hillary, and Don,” discussed at the end of this post.)

Having just written about the August 21st eclipse, I was stunned to learn that, after 30 years of studying these things, I did not know about the eclipse occurring in seven years—where I live!

I had just written in detail about the August 21st eclipse and the upcoming “X” over the Red Sea (formed by the path of two future eclipses), and now I have learned that in seven years, there will be another X over North America as well!

The Lesson: God hides or reveals to whom He wills!

In the evening, I explained the diagram below concerning a series of upcoming eclipses to a small group of believers at my son’s house.

(Click to enlarge.) A string of seven Total Solar eclipses, the first of which began on August 21, 2017. Each is 3.5 eclipse years apart (346 x 3.5 days). While not rare (Earth sees about six such strings per century), what is rare is where, how, and when this series occurs. For example, including the Annular eclipse that initiates this pattern, the chances of the peak* of seven of the eight centered on land are 1000 to 1. This hints that something unusual is happening. [Notice the X (Tav) over North America and the other over the Red Sea. See previous posts, Part One and Part Three, for more about these two X marks.]

The total solar eclipse crosses the United States mid-day, taking about 4 hours.

‘The Lion and the Lamb’ vs. the Dragon: Eclipses of 2017-2024 across America

The total solar eclipse on Aug 21, 2017, near Leo’s constellation’s front paws (Lion of Judah). Stars are visible during totality. (Also, see an update about this image in a post over a year later.)

The Lion and the Lamb!

(This image was added to the journal in 2024.) It captures the 2024 total solar eclipse, depicting the comet ‘Pons-Brooks’ or ‘Devil’s Comet’ against the backdrop of star constellations. In ancient times, a comet was viewed as a celestial sword or scepter in the heavens. It symbolizes the cosmic battle between ‘The Lamb that was slain’ (Christ) and the ‘Dragon’ (Satan) to determine the fate of enslaved humanity, represented by the constellation ‘Pisces/The Fishes’ with its chains.

I feel compelled to read my diary from 1989 concerning the darkest time of my life. I was a pastor under a leader who led us into totalitarian control. Under the misguided notion that I was doing God a favor, I put my wife and a newborn child out of the church. (It’s a long, sad story of how stupid I can be!)

God restored us, and my wife conceived a promised son. During those trials, I fled to a farm in Morrisburg, Ontario, for about 40 days. After that, I was forced to flee back to Toronto.  In my diary, I recorded that God told me that my trials are a type of the trials that His Body, the Church, will suffer in days to come: A  day of gloom and confusion. Then the Lord opened my mind to see that the path of the eclipse of 2024 overlaps the journey from Morrisburg.

Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017

In the evening, I noticed that the eclipses form a pattern that repeats over many years. In particular, the below eclipses that span 35 years came to my attention. (Remember that these two Xs reappear every 18 years and 11 days- called a “Saros cycle”). This means that the third X in the diagram below is the first X (of 2017/2024) but is repeated 18 years from now. Nevertheless, notice how it roughly forms a square of 12000 stadia (2200 km) around the Land promised to Abraham. It also forms one Aleph (Hebrew letter) and three Tavs (as it was shaped in ancient times). This is the equivalent in Hebrew of the Greek letters “Alpha and Omega” (Rev 21:6).

“The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. ” (Rev 21:16).

Two of the X's form the general shape and dimensions of the New Jerusalem at 12000 stadia (2200 km).
(Click to enlarge.) Two of the Xs overlapped to form the general shape and dimensions of New Jerusalem at 12000 stadia (2200 km). They span five times seven years (35), with each of the Xs themselves seven eclipse-years apart. Some of the above eclipses are 2000 years to the day from the Alpha-Omega Total Eclipse strokes that I spoke of in my Tetrad Passover-Tabernacle Blood-Moon Eclipse diagrams back in 2015.  In the below image, see the far left for the Solar Eclipse at the time of Christ’s ministry.  Also note the 12 menorahs in the Holy Place (excluding the Most Holy Place), six straddling another six, formed by the Tetrad Eclipse Cycles over thousands of years. As we shall see next, this same pattern is repeated visually in our century and relates to Hurricane Harvey. (Click the image to enlarge.)

Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017

All day, I ponder the two bowl-shaped patterns produced by four eclipses in 2023: Oct 14 to 2028, Jan 26 and 2024, Oct 2 to 2027, and Feb 6. Each is 3.5 eclipse years apart from the other. I have not taken the time to remove the unused eclipses in the image below, but I have thickened and changed the color of the four Annular eclipses that form the bowls so you can easily spot them.

These patterns (2 bowls and 2 X’s) repeat themselves every 18 years (a Saros cycle). The first eclipse that formed the first bowl occurred on Rosh Hashana (Oct 3) in 2005, and the last occurred 90 years later. This forms the two sets of bowls straddling one another, repeated six times (12 bowls). Before and after 90 years, the pattern of the twin bowls breaks down.

The 12 bowls (including these two) are all annular eclipses that form a bright ring around the moon. This is fitting because each bowl symbolizes a bowl of wrath and the bowl that stood above the lampstand, as recorded in Zechariah 4. In ancient times, some lamps were circular, with a bowl of oil in the middle and seven wicks encircling it. When lit, it would look like a circle of fire, similar to the effect of an Annular eclipse. Rev 21:23, “The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”

“Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. He asked me, “What do you see?” 

I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.” Zechariah 4:1-3

Two of twelve “bowls” shaped by annular eclipses.

I believe these 12 bowls symbolize 12 lampstands (because a bowl of oil sat above each candlestick), symbolizing the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb (Rev 21). (Why “12+12”? Because there are a total of 24 eclipses.)

Also, notice the emphasis on the number seven in the above text. Similarly, each bowl straddles and overlaps the other by 3.5 eclipse years, for a total of seven years.

The Twelve Bowls of the Tabernacle

Moreover, the Book of Numbers (ch. 7) records that on the day the Tabernacle was first set up, each of the 12 tribes offered a bowl of flour with oil in it, along with other offerings carried by six wagons led by two bulls each. In other words, the six wagons each carried a pair of bowls, like the twin bowls formed by the eclipses!

The total weight of the silver given as a gift for the Tabernacle at this time (1406 BC, Nisan 1) amounted to 1260*4 shekels by weight, with 126*2 animals sacrificed. Thus, we have numbers divisible by 12 and 7 again.

For math geeks! Recall the Saros cycle of 18 years between the eclipse-bowls: And 18*70 = 1260.) The middle of the first two bowls is exactly 1150*3 years (Dan 8) to when the Tabernacle was set up, which is also about 1,260,000 days. ("1260000" is 3500*360.) From entering into the Promised Land to the last "eclipse-bowl" are 3500 normal years, as well. (1406 BC + 3500 yrs = 2095.) Hence, the start and finish of the eclipse-bowls (2005-2095) are bracketed by the span of 3500 from the Exodus and Conquest. (Counted twice, equals 7000 years, the same way the two 3.5-yr periods between the twin-bowls is counted twice in overlap to make 7.) From Zerubabbel's temple to the first eclipse bowls are 1260*2 yrs. And so forth and so on!

Back to Thursday, Aug. 24…

On this day, I also pondered the significance of why the first set of bowls was first formed on Rosh Hosanna in 2005 and 2006 (October). I recalled how that was when all the mighty hurricanes occurred and afflicted the United States, including Katrina and Wilma.

For those who have followed my writings in the past, I spent seven years predicting when these hurricanes would form (and major tornado outbreaks). And so it was very natural for me to notice the connection of the first bowls to these hurricanes because bowls in the bible are commonly associated with the outpouring of something, good or bad. I was also aware that there had been a drought of major hurricanes since 2005.

(Click to enlarge.) Above are the first two bowls formed by four annular eclipses. These commence the series of six Saros cycles (inclusive) over the next 90 years before the pattern dissipates. Remember that the bowls are most symmetrical in the middle of the 90 years they form. Also, these first two bowls begin exactly 5*490 years from the decree given to Nehemiah (445 or 444 BC, and thus from 446t or 445t BC) in fulfillment of Daniel 9. And each bowl is 3.5 eclipse years to the other (Dan. 9:24-27).

I will show you all 12 bowls coming up, but first, let’s continue our day-to-day diary of events.

Right after reminding my wife about the meaning of Storms “Don” and “Hillary” six years ago (I discuss that at the end of this article), I found out in the news that TS Harvey had just astounded the weather people at NOAA (NASA) this morning when the storm mushroomed into a threatening hurricane! Well, that got my attention! Indeed, it was headed towards the “Body of Christ” (Latin, “Corpus Christi,” Texas).

Dark clouds are on the way for the Body of Christ, as the Spirit had reminded me earlier in the week, just as they were for Him who hung on the cross—and the sun darkened.

Friday, Aug. 25, 2017

The storm strengthens. I am working on images for this post. (A rough draft of the post was put out today.)

A few days ago, I realized that one X precedes the pair of bowls to form one complete image before reoccurring and, at times, overlapping another. It happens that from the first X formed by the total solar eclipse until the last annular that completes the second bowl (and then all this is repeated six times), it is exactly 1260 + 1260 + 1290 days! And so, from the August 21, 2017 eclipse, plus 1260 + 1290 + 1260 days, the cycle of the twin bowls ends in 2027, Feb 6, and so forth.

These are your standard bible prophecy time frames representing 3.5 years as found in Rev. 12 and Dan. 12. The “1290” has a leap month attached. (See my 360 calendar site.)  Moreover, each twin bowl is about 14 years old (7*2).

For math Geeks: As you can see, the numbers 12 and 7 are predominant throughout the pattern. (Recall that each "X" is also exactly seven eclipse years apart. Moreover, 2024/2025 AD is 7*7*70 years (70 jubilees) from when Israel entered the Promised Land!)

Path of Next Eclipse-Bowl Overlaps Path of Harvey

Now notice the overlap of the path of the first bowl (of this second Saros cycle) coming up in 2023, Oct 14. It’s the exact same path that Hurricane Harvey took after it revived (after precisely 3.5 days) after it passed over the Yucatan Peninsula. (The solar eclipse that just occurred over the US occurred precisely in the middle of this “3.5 days” in which Harvey was dead.  But Harvey revived on the morning of Aug 23, 2017 (Rev. 11).

Path of Hurricane Harvey, 2017.

In the below image, notice the path of the first stroke of the eclipse that forms the bowl: It passes over the Yucatan Peninsula, then bows-eye over Corpus Christi, Texas. Notice this other “X” formed by this annular eclipse (of the bowl) and the solar eclipse (in blue) set to occur seven years from now. This particular “X” over North America (formed by the annular and total solar eclipses) is only half a year apart. And the center of this X occurs over Texas, where Hurricane Harvey is going– along its exact path! Harvey means “Blazing Iron”, which reminds me of a ‘blazing iron rod’.

Rev 2:24-28 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning starHe that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

This eclipse of 2024, Nisan 1st, is the eclipse that the Lord told me symbolizes the coming dark days for the Body of Christ,  just as I went through 35 years earlier when I literally fled along the same path as this eclipse. Notice where these two cross right over Texas, where the storm is forecasted to reverse and turn towards the coast again. It is forecast to meander for a few days, dumping nearly four feet of water in some places. As I type this, the hurricane has just become a category four– exceeding expectations. However, the worst of the storm is on the northeast side, so Corpus Christi will be spared the worst.

Consider how Harvey dies as the sun dies/darkens during the Aug 21 eclipse. This eclipse is the first in the series to last precisely 1260 + 1260 + 1290 days. The very next eclipse is this one, which traverses the same path as Harvey! It is the first annular eclipse that forms the bowl that symbolizes the outpouring of something. Think about that!

Compare the upper bowl of the image below with the path of Hurricane Harvey upon leaving the Yucatan Peninsula. The parallel is striking.

(Click to enlarge.) The bowls symbolize Jews and Gentiles that make up the Body of Messiah. They also speak of the pouring out of God’s judgment. It also refers to the outpouring of power. We are all God’s witnesses, a kingdom of priests, and we shall receive power as never before to declare God’s righteous acts in a dark world. (I do not believe in a literal “Two Witnesses” for the record!)
Harvey ended a “12-year drought of major hurricanes in the US”.

“For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” 1Peter 4:17

All Twelve “Bowls”

Below are the 12 bowls (6*2). The twin bowls are 18 years and 11 days apart. To view any of these in their original form, please see the NASA website.

Bowls 1 & 2.     2005 Oct 3 to 2010 Jan 15, and 2006 Sept 22 to 2009 Jan 26.
Bowls 3 & 4.     2023 Oct 14 to 2028 Jan 26, and 2024 Oct 2 to 2027 Feb 6.
Two of twelve
Bowls 5 & 6.    2041 Oct 25 to 2046 Feb 5, and 2042 Oct 14 to 2045 Feb 16. (The fifth bowl occurs at precisely 180 degrees longitude. These are the same “twin bowls” as below and are the exact outlines NASA supplies. If I had the time, I would have done as good of a job on the rest, too!
Same as above.

Update: The storm total for Harvey reached 65 inches, shattering previous records.

Bowls 7 & 8.     2059 Nov 5 to 2064 Feb 17, and 2060 Oct 24 to 2063 Feb 28. The seventh bowl begins at the future border of Israel. (I had to include 40 years of eclipses because the bowls overlapped the two 20-year periods supplied by NASA. This makes for a messy chart. To compensate, I thickened the lines that show the two bowls.)
Bowls 9 & 10.     2077 Nov 15 to 2082 Feb 27, and 2078 Nov 4 to 2081 Mar 10.
Bowls 11 & 12.     2095 Nov 27 to 2100 Mar 10, and 2096 Nov 15 to 2099 Mar 21. This completes the 12 bowls. As you can see, the bowls begin to lose their shape. In 18 years, the top bowl no longer resembles a bowl. Thus, including the first X starting in 1999, the entire pattern spans 100 years.

Bill, Hillary, and Don

Since the election, I have delayed this message to allow Don to be unhindered by negative prophecy.

(The message below is moved and expanded to the next post!)

Bill and Don were the past two named storms to land directly in Texas. Bill in 2016 and Don (at Corpus Christi) in 2011, simultaneously when Hilarious Hillary on the opposite ocean was mocking God (or at least her stooge, Bill Clinton was).  (See my Hurricane Articles from 2011. Recall the path of Hurricane Irene, meaning false “peace.” Irene occurred between Storms Don and Hillary in the middle of the two months. The 2011 Harvey is in that same article, too.)

Irene occurred between Storms Don and Hillary in 2011. Don and Kushner partly own this area. New York will be key in the coming election, especially on issues of abortion.
DC Earthquake cracked the peak of this symbolic obelisk during the short time between Don and Hillary, days before Irene struck.

God contrasts Don and Harvey

In a nutshell, God gave American Christians what they asked for.

But the difference between what King Don can deliver to the “Body of Christ” and what King Jesus provides is the difference between the rain that Don promised to drought-stricken Texas at that time and what Iron Harvey is pouring out right now!

God rains!

Church, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Israel, pray for your leaders, but don’t trust them!

Especially when it comes to Israeli peace talks, this is what Trump’s son-in-law, Kushner, was wrapping up when Harvey revived.

Two of twelve “bowls” shaped by annular eclipses.

Although not directly related to the bowls, the below image is fascinating.

  1. Hello!
    Checking in.
    Go have fun!
    Happy Mothers day to your wife and lifting you in prayer!
    Do not worry for you are with Jesus so who can be against you?
    Thanks for all you do.



  3. The “Day of the Lord” is the Second Coming of Christ—-a day of darkness, not light—Christ will bring Judgement on all sinners, at the end of the 7year Great Tribulation……6000 years after Creation……….
    The “Lord’s Day” is the 1st day of the week, Sunday, when many churches assemble to worship—-its a day of Judgement on all sinners–on Sunday, we preach “Repent!”—
    ….The “Lord’s Day” is the Shadow of the “Day of the Lord”…….Praise Christ!

  6. [KJV] 2 Peter 1:20 “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”
    [KJV] 2 Peter 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

  7. So the hurricane foreshadows the eclipse. I wonder if that will continue?

    I also wonder if 1335 figures somewhere in this.
    The fact that these eclipse patterns exist over the 90 years you mention kind of put a box around these dates during which God is doing certain things as well as foreshadow what he is doing next.

  8. “I believe that these 12 bowls symbolize 12 lampstands, (because a bowl of oil sat above each candlestick), which together symbolize the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb, (Rev 21). (Why “12+12”? Because there are a total of 24 eclipses.)”

    Are you saying revelation was written describing these eclipse patterns? That john was seeing this? That he saw this time we are in now and then wrote it?

    • Hi Rob. I believe that John saw things that were symbolic of greater realities. I believe that the book of Revelation is laid out like a fractal so that things are self-similar on different scales and sizes.I believe that the eclipses are only one aspect of signs in the heavens and only supply limited information and patterns that when combined with other celestial signs and with other biblical events and patterns, paint a picture for us of what God is doing.
      Interpretation belongs to God as much as the initial sign, and so it takes the Spirit of God to point out to man exactly what He means, and when it will occur. The puzzle is too hard to solve without direct revelation. God is also supplying a general outline for this entire century in the heavens ahead of time to curtain some from dogmatic predictions for when He will return. The prophetic road stretches into the future as far as the eye can see, but at what juncture Jesus comes we cannot know. It’s meant to be this way. God would have us to live in the prophetic present! What is He saying NOW by these signs.
