There has been much discussion of the end-times in this century. The Mayan Calendar ending in 2012 got people talking. The sudden resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the election of Pope Francis, added to the speculation; it seems that St. Malachy had prophesied nearly a thousand years earlier, that our new Pope would be the last, and that he would rule the Roman Catholic Church during the Tribulation. Because the Bible describes the Church as "luke-warm," with Christ on the outside knocking to get in (Rev. 3:14-22), and with it being inundated with apostates (pro-abortion, pro-homosexuals, prosperity preachers, replacement theologians, and an epidemic of scoffers, etc.), the Church is no longer fit to serve as light or salt (Mt. 5:13-14; 2 Pet. 3:3)!
Recently, a fellow named Mark Biltz discovered there will be a "Blood-Moon Tetrad" occurring in 2014-2015, in which there will be a total Lunar Eclipse on the Feasts of Passover and Tabernacles (4-15-14 and 10-8-14; 4-4-15 and 9-28-15). The last two times these occurred (only seven since the birth of Christ), Israel was fighting to keep control of the new nation, and Israel was fighting to capture Jerusalem! Could the Tetrad beginning in about two weeks be associated with the Daniel 11 War, or the Ezekiel 38-39 War? Stay tuned!
"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also" (Gen. 1:14-16).
"And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come" (Joel 2:30-31).
"The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come" (Acts 2:20).
"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood" (Rev. 6:12).
Too many signs occurring to be ignored; trust Jesus while you still have time!
