Are Recent Hurricanes Part of Eclipse Prophecy?

The recent total solar eclipse, referred to as the Great American Eclipse, has led many to speculate on end times events. Now, as two major hurricanes followed closely on the heels of the eclipse, some believe these cosmic events have spiritual significance.

Mark Blitz, the founder of El Shaddai Ministries, stated concerning the August 21 solar eclipse: “From a biblical point of view, a solar eclipse is meant as a sign from God. When there is a total solar eclipse, it is a warning to a specific nation or nations depending on its path. … Could God be giving us a warning that we need to repent or judgment will be coming to the United States? The timing couldn’t be clearer!”

The Great American Eclipse marked the first time in 99 years that a total solar eclipse stretched from coast to coast in the U.S., according to Charisma News.

Only four days later, Hurricane Harvey devastated southeast Texas. Now, close on Harvey’s heels, Hurricane Irma is barreling through the Caribbean, leaving a path of destruction, and is likely headed for landfall, or at least major impact, in Florida.

Interestingly, when the eclipse’s path of totality passed out to sea over the Atlantic Ocean, it passed over three storm systems, one of which was Hurricane Harvey. The timing of these events has caused many to wonder if there is deeper, spiritual significance to these signs.

Meteorologists have also stated that the "the odds for development of those systems is very low," and yet we are now faced with two major hurricanes.
