So these eclipse that you talk about
The first one - March 20th 2015 - is a total eclipse but only if you are in the North Atlantic, Faeroe Island and Svalbard. It is partial in Iceland,
Europe, North Africa, North Asia.
The second one - September 13th 2015 - is only a partial and it will be seen in South Africa, South Indian and Antarctica.
So firstly, it doesn't seem that North America (which is where the idea of the rapture originated) or Israel (which is I'm sure connected to this
religious prophecy in some way) will be seeing either.
Secondly - a partial eclipse does not look like the sun as been covered in sackcloth.
So what does this mean??
Wouldn't the prophecy demand that both be total eclipse?
And it would seem logical to me that the believers in this prophecy (I believe the Rapture prophecy originated in the USA) would at least be able to
see these events.
Or perhaps who actually sees it is not important??
