THE BLOOD MOON RISES

imagesu3ceeeufWe soon will witness an event that has long been associated with the end of the Earth (fortunate timing before finals for my students): the blood moon. Mars, Earth, and the Sun will all align tonight which happens once every 778 days. However, the red moon is less common (as in only occasionally over 2000 years) and has long been viewed as foretelling the “end of times.”

Joel 2:31 states “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes.” Religious figures are already warning that the event foretells “something significant.”

Religious figures often point to historical events occurring with the blood moon like the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1493; the establishment of the States of Israel in 1949; and the Six Day Arab-Israeli War in 1967.

We will be experiencing four — count ’em four — blood moons. This will include April 15 (during Passover), April 4, 2015 (during Passover), September 28, 2014 (during the Feast of the Tabernacles).

Christian Pastor and author John Hagee, predicted a “hugely significant event” and warns that “According to the Biblical prophecy, world history is about to change dramatically.”

I take that to mean that this is the breakout year for both the Chicago Bears and we will once again hold the Vince Lombardi Trophy in the glow of the blood moon. Honestly, that would be worth the end of times.

After all, alignments do not have to be all bad . . .

  1. I thought the eclipse of the moon, the lunar eclipse, was on Passover 15 April 2014 with October 8th, March 20, 2015, and April 4th, 2015. 4 Blood Moons

  2. Hence why religion is based in sad ignorance. The Moon is passing through Earth’s shadow. That’s it. Nothing more. It’s beautiful in its own sake: no superstitious nonsense required.

  3. I know you were trying to be funny, but your attempt at humor at the end of the article fell flat with me. And I’m a football fan. Anyway, “Nero fiddled while Rome burned”, comes to mind.

  4. OK, that’s giving me a little chill. I’ll be out on my deck watching it whilst eating a blood orange. I’m doomed.

  5. If anyone thinks the Bears are Super Bowl material then the advent of the blood moon causes dementia. I suspect Jonathan will be howling @ this moon.

  6. ITS OBAMA’S FAULT………Sorry about that comment, was changing channels on the telly and caught a second of “FOX NEWS”……..

  7. There is no hope for the Cubs. They are losers and the fans love being losers. They had to share the loser cape w/ the BoSox, but they now revel in having the label all to themselves. It’s a self loathing thing.

  8. The blood moon will be on April 15, 2014. For those who don’t know, the increased size is an optical illusion. Your brain doesn’t know how to interpret the light your eyes see. Try this on 4/15; face the moon, looking directly at it. It will be huge. Then, turn your back to it, bend over, and look at it thru your legs. It will be regular size. Or… If you feel silly doing that, just have your back to the moon, and look at it thru a mirror over your shoulder. Last but not least, you could just take a picture of it. The camera doesn’t fall for the illusion.

    Your welcome!

  9. Not sure why pastors and preachers would go into money beg
    and love offering marathons if they knew this was the end.

  10. Thank you John for the scripture, 2Peter 3-5! Non-believers scoff while believers repent and pray. We no not the hour or the day, but those who believe keep watch and pray for forgiveness while the Sodomites laugh and ridicule.

  11. Im baptist. My father was a preacher. I married a upc. End of world ? No. Read the bible. A sign that end times are close at hand, maybe. The lord said no one will know the time of my coming not even the angles in heaven. Period. Also um do belivie that the rapture comes first sending global chaios. Then a man will arise with an excellent reason many disappeard. Most will belivie him. Then he will bring global peace like never before. Then uhoh antichrist will rise within him. And there will be seven years of trails and tribulation. So im not going to worry. If i dont get brought up in rapture then ill know its the end days.

  12. Annie: save your money, watch it while eating a naval orange, blood oranges are not as good.

    Seriously, according to scripture, the blood moons are a warning that the end times are coming. Of course if you are not christian, it will mean nothing to you so enjoy yourselves while watching our biblical signs. I for one think this old world is just about corrupt enough for Man to be seriously thinking of how he can change his ways.

  13. Stanley: Thanks that was a nice reminder of what a wonderful utopia we are living in. (Sorry, I can’t help the sarcasm) And how “O” has made this world soooo…. much better. humph

  14. The blood moons are not end of the world events. World with out end is what is the Bible message. The moons are signs to Gods chosen people Israel. They can be good or bad events. But if one looks to the world, one can see many strange things in the news. But the country Israel is in the news daily.
