This is a bit of a departure from my usual commentaries but, it’s something I think about often. First of all I am not one of those long haired, bearded, white robed people holding a sign saying the end is near nor am I a bible thumping preacher nor am I here to convert anyone, but I am from a strong Christian upbringing and faith. That being said I have noticed certain things prophesized in the bible are indeed coming true.
When I was a little kid in the mid 1950’s I remember having a discussion with my mother and grandmother about the end of the world. They told me that the book of Revelations in the bible foretold certain signs that would happen before the end of times. They also told me that the world would be destroyed by fire. The signs they told me were: 1) Fruits and plants blooming out of season. Could this be the climate change we are experiencing now? 2) Wars and rumors of wars. Besides Iraq and Afghanistan and Isreal and Palestine there are 50 smaller wars going on now with lesser known countries that are not being reported. 3) Remarkable inventions, I think the rapid advancement of technology such as the internet, smart phones, with all the apps and texting bringing people closer together is in itself a remarkable invention and I’m sure you could think of many more. 4) People moving place to place a rapid rate. With the super trains and super jet travel you can fly from the United States to England in just a few hours now and don’t forget men have walked on the moon now. 5) Great strife in the Middle East. This is self explanatory now. Although the Middle East has always been in turmoil since the biblical days it has never been in the state it is in now with Isreal and Palestine firing rockets at each other. They also told me that the anti-christ would appear and be from the Middle East and he would be a great deceiver and well liked and would rule for seven years. I have heard people refer to Obama as the anti-christ since he is supposedly from Kenya and Indonesia and is a great deceiver and well liked as he deceived people about himself and his true positions on things making us into a socialist/communist country. He is in his sixth year now. 6) Children rebelling against their parents. Well that has always happened ,but the bible also fortells of an increase in violence and immorality. Today, the world is FULL of violence and sexual immorality. You only need turn the tv on and you will see violence, fornication and homosexuality everywhere. The cities of the world today are especially bad and are no longer safe places to be. 7) One main religion in the world. The goal of Islam is world domination and now Islam is fast becoming the leading and major religion in the world beating out Christianity. They also said a few other signs I can’t remember now.
As far as the world being destroyed by fire, at the time I was thinking about a comet hitting the earth as I read the earth can fit inside the tail of such comets or maybe the earth falling off its’ orbit and into the sun like the famous Twilight Zone episode, but now I think that refers to nuclear war as more and more rogue regimes like North Korea and Iran get a hold of their nukes and threaten to destroy us while Obama, proceeds to disarm us. I recently heard a general say all a country with a nuke has to do is launch a missile from international waters with a nuclear warhead and explode it 100 miles above us and the sheer vibration would knock all our grids out and millions would die.
World Net Daily has been running a series on the Four Blood Moons or lunar eclipses that are occurring this year and next. This year and next year in 2015 there will be four lunar eclipses which some believe will enter in the end of times. Like I said I’m a good Christian, but not a head for the hills type, but you can’t deny certain signs that are foretold in the bible. Signs such as changes in the weather, earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, wars and rumors of wars, the middle East in turmoil and on fire all are biblical prophecies. All these signs, coming together at one time, are potentially the culminating signals that God is closing this chapter of human history,” declares pastor Mark Biltz, author of the brand-new book and DVD,
“This could be the final curtain call before the Great Tribulation mentioned in the Bible. God has always wanted to warn His people, and the rest of the world, before He intervenes. What better way to communicate to us than through the universal language of heavenly signs that speak to every tribe, tongue, and nation?”
In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)
In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted as saying, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light … And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:29-30)
“Four total lunar eclipses happening the next two years herald possible war in the Middle East as well as global economic collapse,” he told WND.
He says historically, these types of solar eclipses have been signs, foretelling important events such as the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem.
“Two happened right in a row at the time of destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. and on feast days,” he said.
“Around eight months before the Temple was destroyed we find on 10/18/69 there was a partial lunar eclipse on the Feast of Sukkot. A total solar eclipse followed this on Nisan 1-3/30/70, the beginning of the religious year. Two weeks later there was a penumbral lunar eclipse on Passover on 4/14/70. An annular solar eclipse followed this on Rosh Hashanah on 9/23/70. Then another penumbral lunar eclipse on Sukkot on 10/8/70,” he explained.
Biltz stresses what makes the coming events so startling is the fact they’ll take place during the Feast of Passover and Feast of Tabernacles in consecutive years.
“This has happened only eight times over the last 2,000 years!” Biltz said. “And the last two times these occurred on the Jewish holidays there was a war in the Middle East regarding the nation of Israel. These are patterns and historical facts that cannot be disregarded. The Jewish Talmud records that total lunar eclipses are indicators or omens for the nation of Israel.”
The April 15 eclipse marks the start of a lunar tetrad. That event occurs when there are four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six full moons.
A book out last year, Four Blood Moons: Something is about to change, suggests the event could be a fulfillment of biblical prophecy.
In it, John Hagee writes that the red disks of the moon during the full eclipses are referred to in the book of Joel 2:31: “The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”
The other three eclipses of this lunar tetrad are on Oct. 8 of this year and then April 8 and Sept. 28 of 2015.
As of 16th April 2014, there were around 3,500 earthquakes happening a month. (Link)
