I wonder why doom porn almost always goes down in the fall?

These 'signs' happen all the darn time. Gather yourself together and try not to pass out in shock when nothing happens.

I don't see any astronomy in the interpretation of Revelation, and I don't understand the "woman in heaven" vision as a prediction of future events.
To me, the twelfth chapter is what film producers call a "flashback". The book Revelation is about the fact that Satan is persecuting the church. Ch12 returns to the events of the past to explain why.
The child being born and rising into heaven is Christ himself. The "battle in heaven" is about what Christ achieved on the Cross, the act of atonement for sin which destroyed the standing of "the accuser" and threw him down from his place of power. That is why it is said that the accuser has been conquered "by the blood of the Lamb" (v11). The whole scene is a dramatised version of the doctrine of the Atonement.
This accounts for the resentment of Satan and his desire for revenge (v12), which motivates the persecution of the church as we see in ch13.

Satan fell from heaven
You may want to come back to this when nothing happens in September.

The best I can say is that I have hope.
My head says this will be nothing and it's got very firm intellectual ground to stand on.
My heart wants so much for this to be it and the indicators look like it may be. Certainly, I think there is more to this than almost all of the past doom porns we've watched through.
That still doesn't mean anything major will happen at all. Even if it does mark the beginning of those time, nothing at all may happen tomorrow.

To those coming from the "doom porn" perspective..
I never thought of it as doom porn when I posted it..
At least from the influences around me, no one seems to think of it as doom porn, nor is it scary.
There's certainly no fear!
In many regards it's beautiful - and I'm glad to be alive to see it!!

Hey guys, I just joined. Killer forum! I uploaded a video called "Rick and Morty and the Great American Eclipse" that I worked for a while on regarding strange predictive programming surrounding the upcoming eclipse. If any of you are interested here it is. Didn't know where else to share it.
