Good morning/afternoon/evening. Thanks for this article, it is very well written, I may say. I only want to ask you one question: do you think all the events ( the solar eclipse and all the hurricanes ) have some kind of connection with the paragraph from The Holy Bible, Luke 21:25-26 25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken." The total solar eclipse was on the 21st of August, and the Hurricane Harvey begun on the 25th. What do you think about that? Thank you for your time.

Thank you for this article. Proverbs 30:5-6 says (Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to His words or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar. :) We should measure our opinions when speaking on behalf of the Lord. :) Now, concerning what's happening since the eclipse, I came across an interesting passage of scripture during my prayer time last week. When you have a chance read Acts 2:17-21. I believe we are living in the greatest Harvest of souls there will ever be. Based on this passage of scripture, I would call this the "Glorious Day of the Lord." It began on August the 21st because all of these scripture markers are being meet. In 1517 Martin Luther saw two of the things we just saw--a lunar eclipse and a blood moon which marked the protestant reformation 500 years ago. Things are about to get interesting.

You describe this in several ways. You go from describing it as a possible "divine sign", to a "sign of impending judgement", to a "sign of divine judgement", to finally an "act of divine judgement". But why is a "sign" the same thing as an "act"? Why is the eclipse not simply taken as a warning sign similar to Jonathan Cahn's "The Harbinger"? Why shouldn't Christians treat this soberly and seek God with an open and humble heart asking Him what He is saying to us? You also said, "I’m simply saying that we need a lot more evidence, accompanied with a clear prophetic warning, before we make a solemn pronouncement." More evidence? Are we like the Jews who seek a sign? And which prophet will you trust to give the clear word from the Lord? Sadly, the prophets seems all over the board with some warning of judgement while others proclaim blessings. How are we to do know which prophet is right? Seriously. You conclude saying, "I hope we can we agree on this: America needs the Lord right now, and we should join together in asking God to have mercy on our nation". I do agree we need the Lord, but shouldn't we humble ourselves and seek God with repentance too? Jesus' reply to the Jews was that the only sign God would give them was the sign of Jonah. That's a pretty cryptic sign and yet He was saying if you can see this sign, then repent that judgement might not come to your land. Sadly the Jews of the day missed the sign they were given. And so judgment did eventual come to them. Do we really expect to get a clearer sign than they did?

Great points Dr. Brown. I also read in an article from Johnny Enlow is that we also don't consider the land itself dispensing judgement. It speaks of this in Leviticus 18:28. No one truly knows what is going on but we shouldn't use a comment like that to simply bury our heads in the sand and pretend one view or the other is completely wrong. What we should be doing is pressing into the Lord and asking Him what He wants us to see and do in the situation and the best way to love people and demonstrate the Kingdom here on earth just like it is in Heaven.
