One of the end-time errors describes an eclipse immediately before the return of Jesus Christ. However, the opposite will ultimately be the case.

One thesis says, “When Jesus Christ returns, the heavenly stars will go out.” Isaiah chapter 13 is supposed to be proof of this. Here the prophet describes the conditions immediately before our Lord’s return. The stars will no longer shine, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will cease to shine.
Isaiah 13:6-10 (King James Version – KJV):
“Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.“
The Bible describes a darkness during the fifth plague (Info). But this does not yet mark the return of Jesus Christ. More plagues follow and also a final battle between Babylon and the people of God.
At first glance, Isaiah 13 suggested a darkness in the final events. Even the sun that is close to us “rises darkly”. Only black sky, at night and during the day. But could it be that exactly the opposite is the case?
Jesus Christ does not come alone. He is accompanied by all the angels in heaven. Their number is so large that John on Patmos could apparently only hint at the number. If this number can actually be understood literally, then it would be over 100 million angels. So inRevelation 5:11:
“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;“
Now one angel is enough to illuminate the earth with his glory,Revelation 18:1:
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.“
Moses would not have survived the glory of God had he not been preserved by His protecting hand,Exodus 33:22:
“And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:“
In addition to other clear descriptions about the true return of Jesus Christ (Info), the focus is particularly on the prediction about the visibility of “all eyes”.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.“
Either His return occurs so quickly that all people on this round planet can see this event within a very short period of time, or it is actually an event that can be viewed by all eyes at the same time.
The answer should be clear. When just one angel is enough to light up the earth. How bright would it have to be with millions of angels? The Lord is of course at the forefront and His glory will once again outshine everything. What then remains of the luminosity of the stars, the moon and the sun? These otherwise radiant celestial bodies will appear darkened, like pitch-black coal.
Humanity will not only see the coming of Jesus Christ and all His angels when the Savior and His companions have “entered the orbit of the earth”, but rather a certain period of time beforehand. Unfortunately, the majority of people will fall into fear and fright at this spectacle. There will be great panic. Any realization that has only just occurred is already far too late. Only a few more moments will pass and the dead will be called from their graves and the living, declared righteous people will be transformed to meet Jesus Christ together in heaven. All others will remain in their graves or perish from the glory of our Lord.
There will be no darkness when Jesus Christ returns. The earth will shine brightly like never before. Only then does the once living earth turn into a dark abyss.
The 1000-year kingdom of peace on earth does not exist and is a widespread heresy (Info).
In this context, the constellation of Orion with its 3-star star (“belt”) appears very interesting. In the German Bible translation of “Schlachter 2000” and also in the English King James Version, the term “Orion” does not appear in Isaiah 30:10. Other Bible translations have the word Orion here.
The term “constellation” used in the King James Version is represented by the Hebrew word “ksil.” This can stand for a constellation, a star formation and also for Orion. In the German Luther’s 1912 Bible, this word was translated as Orion. Isaiah 13:10 (Luther 1912):
“For behold, the day of the Lord is coming, cruel, wrathful, fierce, to destroy the land and to destroy sinners from it. For the stars in the sky and his Orion do not shine brightly; the sun rises darkly and the moon shines darkly.“
The Hebrew word “ksil” occurs in three other places in the Old Testament, although here the translators chose the word “Orion”.
Amos 5:8 (KJV):
“Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:“
Job 9:9 (KJV):
“Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.“
Job 38:31 (KJV):
“Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?”
It cannot be finally clarified whether Orion in particular was a general description of the constellations in ancient times or whether a very specific location is indicated here. At least the constellation Orion also played a major role in ancient Egypt and the Vatican shows a great interest in “cosmic events” by operating an IR camera for astronomical investigations on the Large Binocular Telescope. The Vatican gave this camera the name “LUCIFER”.
