Rare Blood Moon, Earth and planet events seem to be running the gamut this month as first the Blood Moon and the prediction of the apocalypse prophecy hit the news earlier this week. Now word on another rare space event called an “opposition” is due to occur on Wednesday, according to the website Christian Today on April 5.
The Earth, Mars and the sun will fall into a straight line on Wednesday April 8. While there’s been no talk about a dooms day scenario with this rare alignment, its early yet. Many have been following what is cited in the Bible about the Blood Moon and the apocalypse. Others have offered bizarre interpretations of what the Blood Moon will bring.
The first of four Blood Moons will occur on April 15, this is a rare event, but this event is linked to the Bible scripture that calls for the end of days claim two religious leaders. Pastors Mark Blitz and John Hagee have been referring to the Bible and what the scriptures suggest will be an apocalypse. This is gaining a lot of attention, much like the end of the Mayan calendar predictions did.
Four Blood Moons will occur within the next year and a half, in 2014 and in 2015. The Blood Moon will rise during Passover on April 15, 2014 and another one will materialize in April of 2015. The other two Blood Moons will rise in October of 2014 and September of 2015, according to RT.com today.
The scriptures do refer to the Blood Moon and Pastor Mark Blitz has spent many years studying and lecturing on the Blood Mood being a sign of the apocalypse. He has written a book on the subject, “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs.”
He quotes a passage found in the Bible:
“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
Blitz believes that the sun and the moon were created to be used as signs. The Blood Moon is one of those signs, which signifies the “creator of the universe would intersect with human history.” He says that throughout history the sun and the moon have been used to communicate with those on Earth. The Blood Moons means that “God is about to move mightily in the world.”
Next is one bizarre theory that the Blood Moons will cause the end of days, but the insects will inherit the earth. Caution read all the way through before making a judgement:
According to WebWire.com on April 6, Another apocalypse predictor, Rick Tobin, has an impressive resume working for the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy and for “agricultural agencies that plan for insect infestations and disease outbreaks.” He is also citing the Blood Moons as the sign of the apocalypse, but he goes further and describes what that will look like.
Tobin believes that the insects will take over the world ending life as we know it. While he stops short of saying how this will occur, he offers a hint about rumors of experiments with insects that went on at Plum Island decades ago. He said the “Defense Department wanted an insect weapon that they could release on the battlefield that would be quiet and effectively destroy the enemy.”
Tobin claims that the insect chosen was the “Tiger Beetle for its ferocity.” He also said the DNA was manipulated until the insects grew to the size of a man’s arm. He tells the tale of a night that seems to be out of a science fiction movie, claiming that three lab techs met their demise with a bug. The lab techs made some type of a mistake with the bugs and they were butchered by a single beetle. This was done in building 101 on Plum Island and even though the building was fumigated and remodeled, workers won’t enter that wing.
This was a totally far-out story, but Tobin believes that insects will be the insect warfare against humans when the Blood Moon signal the start of the apocalypse. He also said:
" If you care to live in ignorance, it won’t matter much longer. If I told everything I knew about what’s coming I’d end up in a ditch, like a lot of microbiologists have lately.”
Everyone is getting into the act of the Blood Moons, this was just part of a science fiction story that ended up getting posted online and some believed it was the real deal. This story was so far-fetched, but just in case folks took this as factual, the website offered a disclaimer. That disclaimer didn't post until after the story was online for a while, suggesting some folks may have fallen for it. They note: "Since the initial publication of this story, officials have requested it be noted that this information is totally fictitious."
This just goes to show anyone with a bit of imagination can get some recognition spinning an apocalypse scenario. Some of these end of world scenarios sound interesting, especially the ones that seem to be linked to the bible.
Others are just plain off the wall, like the bugs that munch on humans. Most people knew that wasn't real when reading through the first paragraph. The Blood Moons will come and go and life won't change because of the red hue around the moon. The apocalypse has been promised with the end of the Mayan Calendar and some folks held on tight waiting for that day to come, which it did and nothing materialized.
Instead of worrying about an apocalypse, go out and enjoy the red hue around the Blood Moon this month as the alignment of the sun, Earth and moon creates lighting in the atmosphere to make that red hue.
