Blood Moon Rising

March 5, 2013

Wow! ...   We are truly living in an amazing time! ... These past few months have been unprecedented as far as prophetic signs of the 'End Times' are concerned. ... I've been doing this 'Watchman' thing for some time now, and I have NEVER seen so much activity as related to the "Birth Pains" Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:4-8  .... In this passage He spoke of deception, wars & rumors of wars, earthquakes, famine & pestilences ... all of which would continue to increase in both frequency and intensity as we draw ever nearer to His  Glorious Return. ........ Is this happening? ... A person would have to be 'brain-dead' not to notice what is going on! .....

Rabbi Joseph Cahn, author of the New York Times bestseller "The Harbinger" says this ... "We know we are in the last days.  The signs are evident ... Israel's return to their land ... The world's focus on the Middle East ... The increase in man's powers, including that of self-destruction ... The increase in immorality ... massive worldwide apostasy" ... Cahn goes on to say, "In addition, there are precise signs of Biblical warnings & judgement  which have been manifesting, particularly in America." ...   These signs, according to the author, are distinct warnings given to a nation in defiance & departure from God. ..... 

Adding to Rabbi Cahn's list of end-time events is the almost common phrases such as 'unprecedented;' .. record-shattering ' .. 'historic' .. as it relates to all the current forms of pestilence such as weather, earthquakes, volcanoes, famine, economic conditions, and the like taking place almost everywhere! ... I remember just a few years ago, I would have to dig for stories to report .... but now, I have to 'pick & choose' because there is so much going on! 

Looking at just yesterday, March 4th ....  One article said this ... "Ice World: Record weather conditions all over the globe" ... Another spoke of the "heightened volcanic activity over many areas of the planet" .... and yet another talked of the "unprecedented increase in earthquake activity, especially in the Pacific Rim region" ... and this amazing report  ... "More than 30 million locusts hits Egypt as Passover approaches - Mideast troubles take a Biblical turn" ...... and finally, this story from 'Space Weather' ... "More comets & signs in the sky" ... and that's JUST ONE DAY! 
  
Because there is so much going on, I've decided to take on just the last one for this writing ... 'the signs in the sky' .....

Luke 21:25 says "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars." ... Ok ... so some of you are immediately skeptical concerning a lot of this stuff, but you who are must admit that there's been a major increase of activity in the celestials ..... Just look at the month of February alone ... a very large & dangerous meteor over Russia  ..  Several other meteor or comet sightings in places like Cuba, Florida, Southern California, San Francisco  ....  Lightning striking St. Peters almost simultaneously with the Pope's resignation ..  Recent surge in UFO sightings all over the world (Oregon, Florida, Australia, Mexico) .... and back to yesterday, another comet or meteor sighting over Australia ... and most all of these things have either been just recently ... or newly discovered.  

So why the sudden increase? ... The world's best scientists don't seem to have a solid answer or theory, other than coincidence or simple happenstance .....  .... One thing we can be sure of ... much speculation will come forth from the prognosticators  .... Let me submit to you one emerging theory that so far has not been 'out in the open' much, but trust me when I say, it will be very, very soon! ... and that is the "Blood Moon Theory" .... Supporters seem to believe that the 2nd coming of Christ will likely occur in 2014 or 2015 when there will be four consecutive, rare lunar eclipses, or a 'Tetrad' .... The eclipses will coincide with two major holidays on the Jewish calendar in 2014 & 2015 ... Passover & The Feast of Tabernacles ... Supporters of this theory believe the Rapture likely will coincide with one of these eclipses. The Scriptures they refer to are Joel 2:30-31 which says, "I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." ... In addition, Revelation 6:12-13 states, "I watched as He opened the 6th seal.  There was a great earthquake.  The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to the earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind." .... The theory concludes with this thought ... Four blood-red total lunar eclipses will fall on Passover & Sukkot in 2014 & 2015, the same back-to-back occurrences which took place in 1492 (Columbus), 1948 (Israel became a state), & 1967 (the 6-day war). ....

Interesting?  Certainly, but simply speculation, at best. .... The one thing we can be sure of is that as these 'celestial' occurrences  escalate, along with all the others ... and they will .... we most certainly will see many more 'theories' come our way. ... But let's remember that the first last-day sign Jesus warned of was 'deception' ... meaning we must weigh everything that comes our way, which will be fast & furious in these crazy times ...

2 Timothy 3:1 says, ".... There will be terrible times in the last days." .... Even Jesus Himself told us when referring to all the chaotic conditions of at the end of days said that  "Such things must happen..." (Matthew 24:6) ....   But then, 1 Thessalonians 1:10 says .... "Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath." 

To sum up, the signs are everywhere and they will continue to get more intense & more frequent in the coming days ... and will it be frightening? ... You bet! ... But remember, Jesus WILL rescue us .... and that is the 'message' of this commentary. ... People are worried and afraid right now, and as conditions deteriorate, they are going to be searching for a ray of hope .... a light in this rapidly darkening world.
.... and ultimately, this will provide great opportunities to witness & share the saving message of Jesus Christ ... the One and only One who can take away their fears and save them! .... 

Jesus said in Matthew 5:14 that "You are the light of the world." .... Are you a shining light? ... If not, why not? .... Believe me when I say that time is short, thereby leaving little time to waste!

Know that I love each of you & am praying for you with each passing moment .... God knows who you are! ... Hallelujah!

Until next time,

Red
