You're talking nonsense. The Bible uses the symbolic figure of ''stars'' to represent Angelic and/or Spiritual figures, so the ''fall of stars'' represents the downfall morally and spiritually of Angels and Clergy.
So "soon" does mean MORE THAN 1900 YEARS from now... or at least it does NOW....
because it DIDN'T in the PAST when "Christians" were 100% WRONG over and over and over again on this very subject.
Indeed, the "Crusades" were over the very same issue, and in year 980, the largest denomination of "Christian" was predicting the ancient version of David Koresh would float down from the clouds in the year 1000...
How any human with a working brain could still fall for this utterly ridiculous bullshit is beyond me.
Only one demographic observed this fraud when he actually lived, the Jewish demographic, and they reject him and consider him a fraud, and those whose ancestors never got near this guy are absolutely certain that those who actually observed him are wrong about him, because they parrot and sing songs every Sunday....
I challenge ANYONE to interpret the passage from Revelation as anything but proof the author (John via an angel via "God") had NO CLUE AT ALL what a STAR was....https://biblehub.com/revelation/6-13.htm
