God Himself is pointing the world to “The Empty Cross” at The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden in Kerrville, Texas, halfway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans at the same latitude as ISRAEL.  The Annular Eclipse (10/14/23) and the Total Eclipse (4/8/24) forever point to Jesus Christ!

” I have been around a longtime.  In my life I have witnessed things few humans ever see.  I can tell you that the intersection of the two rare solar eclipses, right over the top of “The Empty Cross” sculpture in Kerrville is no accident!  There is a God! He created the universe, yet cared enough to send His Son, Jesus Christ to die on a cross tow thousand years ago for the sins of mankind.  All who call on His name will be saved!”

What Can I Expect Day Of?

Why did an "Annualar Solar Eclipse" (10/14/23) and a "Total Solar Eclipse" (4/8/24) intersect over Kerrville, Texas?

God marked this spot because His treasure is here, halfway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, on IH-10, at the same latitude as ISRAEL. This is the only place on earth were a 77’7″ Cor-ten steel sculpture, “The Empty Cross” exists.  It is the most symbolic cross in the world and was erected at The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden on 7/27/10. The free, 24.5 acre park ranks in the top 10% of tourist attractions worldwide, according to TRIPADVISOR.  $3,000,000 word of art honors God here.

Why did over a million people from over 100 countries travel to this garden before the solar eclipse?

It is a type of last days tabernacle, a portal into the spiritual realm, where the power and presence of God manifests daily; where miracles, signs and wonders are commonplace.

Is it true signs in the heavens predict events on earth?

Yes, God uses the cosmos to communicate to humanity and foreshadow the return of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ.

What do these signs mean at this time in history?

They point to the end of time and the return of Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah who will appear in the sky as a warrior on a white stallion, to judge all who have rejected Him.
