A Great Biblical Sign: September 23, 2017
Posted on: 06/04/2017 06:22 PM

We all know the songs: "Saturn Nights," "Moon Song," "Till The Sun Comes Up Again", "God Of The Sun," "Young Moon" and "The Star." However, have you heard about the following:

Many Christians, which includes myself, believe a great biblical sign will occur this September 23 according to Revelation 12:1 of the Bible. Perhaps, you have heard about it: "A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head..."

Exactly what it means, many are not sure. Some believe it's a sign for the nation of Israel of something huge that is going to happen (such as a major war) while others believe it may be the rapture of the believers of Jesus as their messiah when He will remove them from the earth for "safekeeping" while leaving non-believers to do as they wish as God pours out His wrath upon an unbelieving and unrepentant world. Some believe it may be both ... the start of a major world event pertaining to Israel and the rapture of Christians from this planet. Whichever the case, it may serve each of us well to view each of the following three YouTube videos on the subject. If you are a non-believer of Jesus as your savior, I implore you to view all three of the videos from start to finish as your eternal destination may well be at stake! If it should happen to be the rapture, I don't want you to have to experience what God calls "the Tribulation" which is a seven year period on earth that follows the rapture and will be the worst period of time to ever occur on the planet since the beginning of time according to God's word!!!

Lastly, September the 23rd of this year falls on a Saturday. A particular song of Gerry's comes to mind for me here. Anyway, back to the topic ...

VIDEO #1: "September 23, 2017? What's Going To Happen?"

VIDEO #2: "Revelation 12 Sign, 9/23/17, Is Fact Not Interpretation."

VIDEO #3: "Great Sign of Revelation 12"

Not to discourage you, but I have lived through several of these predictions of the Rapture / Second Coming. I think I may still have a book titled "Why Jesus Will Return in 1988!". Whenever I hear a new prediction, I always remember what Jesus said about it:

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Mathew 24:36

Mark - No discouragement whatsoever. I'm well aware of previous predictions.

Have you viewed the three videos? For what it's worth, September 23rd of this year just happens to be God's feast day known as the Feast of Trumpets which uses the Jewish idiom: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only," as you just quoted. Merely coincidence?

If nothing occurs on September 23, nothing is lost. However, if to the contrary, one's soul may well be.

I think you have mistakenly posted this stuff on the wrong website. This is the America web site!

Full support with your comment King of Glass...Grahame obviously hasn't understood your point linking the America tracks. 'Jesus is just alright with me' is cool.Bring it on Mate. I understand where you're coming from..we have to stick together.

Given Dan's public expression of his Faith, he may have found KoG's post interesting.

Grahame - In the past many topics that were not America-related have been posted on this "Dan Peek Fan Blog". I'm sorry that you feel it isn't "proper" (for lack of a better word). Past topics have included the Christian faith of which Dan was a big part of. As we know, that's why he left the band and pursued his solo career. I appreciate your input, nonetheless.

Derrick - Thanks, brother, I truly appreciate your support!!! It's good to know that you're a fellow believer!

Mark - Regarding your most recent posting, I feel that Dan would have indeed found the "great biblical sign" posting to be interesting. He likely would have known about the topic before its mention here, I would have bet.

To anyone who may have any further interest, below is another link to a YouTube video by another believer who talks about the "great sign" and what he believes about it. I feel his remarks are quite interesting because of what he says how this sign greatly differs from "rapture predictions" of the past. I'm posting his particular video because, like him, I'm not saying that the sign is an ABSOLUTE indicator of the rapture; however, it definitely should be looked into with keen interest, I believe. I do think there's a very strong likelihood of the rapture pertaining to the sign as the person in the video states.

According to Dan Peek in his autobiography, An American Band, Dan was sacked from the band.

I don't recall reading that Dan was "sacked". I seem to remember that he left the band of his own volition. No?

No. Page 257 of An American Band makes it clear he was sacked, though Dan does explain the circumstances behind it.

Interesting!

It reads: "The next day I was a no show at the rehearsal. A hasty meeting was called and the foregone conclusion was made formal. I was out."

The paragraph that follows states: "I don't know what galled everyone more. My falling off the wagon or my proclamation of being a 'Born Again Christian'. In any event, I wanted out and knew it was time to go, precisely because of the external pressures of the group."

Yes, Dan saying, "I was out," does indicate a "sacking." I had only remembered the "...I wanted out..." part. So, thanks for clarification/correction!

We know these lyrics from "California Revisited":

"Heaven may be an answer
If you're lookin' for Eden in the sky
On your waters I see a strange reflection
Rumor has it I'll see you when I die..."

Some of the THINGS Dan (and many of our friends and family members who have also passed on) are experiencing!

It does sound mutual, because Dan wanted to be fired. Dan's drug problems and the pressure he was feeling (summed up in Dewey's song "Are You There" kinda indicate where he was. It wasn't a bad time to leave, because America's run of hit songs seems to have slowed down. If they had gone more rocking and electric like the Eagles did, they may have made it longer.

I agree with you, as far as the direction of the music. It seems that once George Martin started producing America, their music shifted a little more towards the soft-rock / pop direction and away from the "classic rock" trend. If you listen to America's first 3 albums, they were on a more classic rock band path. When Martin took over, they shifted towards a more pop sound. It was subtle, and they had some nice rockers under Martin, but I do hear a slight shift.
