Index and Summaries of Articles
I have been discussing, debating, teaching, and learning about Bible prophecy in online forums for the last 20 years, 4½ of them at Worthy Christian Forums. (Have intensively studied the subject since 1973.) Most of these articles, distilled out of all those years of study and debate, address the great majority of questions which repeatedly crop up on Bible prophecy forums. However, about one-fifth of the articles focus instead on important principles about the nature of man, the heavens, and the Tabernacle and Court.
In the copying-over of these articles onto this site, the type-sizes and faces have sometimes changed, generally becoming smaller. You can enlarge the text by keying the Ctrl and plus (+) keys, more than one time if neccessary. To revert to normal, use the Ctrl and minus (-) keys.
I would like to offer thanks and appreciation to George for allowing me to do this blog on Worthy, as well as for his overall service to the Christian community for the huge work he has put into this site.

7. “The Stars Will Fall From Heaven” = Pole Reversal?
Shows how passages from Matt. 24, Luke 21, and Rev. 6, 9, and 12, about the stars falling from heaven in the era of the Second Coming, together indicate a reversal of Earth’s poles. Evidence about such pole reversals in the past is presented for comparison.
