Question:

What does it mean in the Bible that there will be signs in the moon and sun and stars?

Answer:

Matthew 28     29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

Here we have the words of Jesus, telling us of future events. He says that we will see the sun darkened when it should be shining, the moon black when it should be full, and the stars falling from heaven. These are signs of Jesus Second Coming, for it says that He will appear directly after these events. These supernatural happenings will tell us that the end is near, and that Jesus will soon come to gather His children to Him. So, for God’s followers, the heavenly signs will be signs of hope, that the end is in sight.

I trust that this makes sense to you. God bless!
