The total solar eclipse of 8 April 2024 that will cross continental USA will go over 2 American towns named “Nineveh”

This coming 8 April 2024, a total solar eclipse will see the shadow of the moon travel across much of continental USA for the 2nd time in less than 7 years, and this time around it will go over 2 towns named “Nineveh” (ref. 1). Some pundits insist it will be 8 American towns named “Nineveh”, but careful checking reveals that only Nineveh Indiana and Nineveh Ohio will experience a total solar eclipse. The others will see a partial solar eclipse.

The last total solar eclipse like this occurred on 21 August 2017, and that one saw the shadow of the moon travel across 7 towns or cities named “Salem” (ref. 2).

Now, the paths of these two solar eclipses happen to form a cross of sorts, as in an X. What is remarkable is that at the spot marked by X there is a place in Indiana USA named “Rapture”. Apparently, it is the only place in the USA called “Rapture”.

So: Nineveh, Salem, Rapture, and even the numbers 2 and 7. These are all biblical and apocalyptic.

First, Nineveh.

The significance of Nineveh is this: Nahum 1:1-11 prophesies that the Assyrian, otherwise known as the Antichrist, will come out of Nineveh, Iraq, which was once the capital of ancient Assyria. In the year 2014, ISIS declared its caliphate from a mosque in Mosul, which is located in what the nation of Iraq calls “Nineveh Governorate”.

The burden of Nineveh… There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the LORD, a wicked counsellor.

Nahum 1:1-11

Next, Salem.

Salem in Hebrew, as in Jerusalem, means “peace” or “complete” or “perfect”.

To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel. In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

Psalms 76:1-2

Alternatively, Salem especially in regard to the USA brings to mind the Salem witch trials of 1692, and also The Satanic Temple, which has its headquarters in Salem Massachusetts, and which was founded in 2013, one year before ISIS.

Notice the path of the eclipse of Nineveh goes one way, while the path of the eclipse of Salem goes another way. The two ways are different, nearly perpendicular. Furthermore, it is like the USA is being crossed out: the coming end of Babylon!

And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 51:26

Next, Rapture.

The “rapture” is a doctrine spread largely by American pastors. The most widespread version is the pre-trib rapture. Proponents of this doctrine argue that the church will be raptured, or taken out of the way and to heaven, before the beginning of the 7 year tribulation.

I have explained that this idea is unbiblical, a doctrine of demons that might cause congregants to inadvertently take the mark of the beast, and consequently damn themselves to the lake of fire.

The rapture, if that word must be used, is actually the reaping of the harvest in Revelation 14, which is entirely about the saints. The saints must be resurrected or translated on the day of the LORD so that all 144000 can become soldiers of the kingdom of God, here on earth.

An ordinary Christian, however, someone that has not taken the mark of the beast, can carry on living his or her life here on earth in human form. Of course, on the day of the LORD, those Christians that died during the tribulation will find themselves in heaven, serving the throne of God there.

Next, the numbers 2 and 7.

2 and 7 together has something to do with the saints, or else me. Half of 144000 is 72000. Furthermore, the northern kingdom of Israel was swept away by ancient Assyria in the year 722 BC. And as for me, the servant of Isaiah 49, 7 February is my birth date.

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword…

Isaiah 49:1-2

Luke 21:25 says very clearly that in the last days, there shall be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity…

Luke 21:25
