I can no longer be your “girl.”
The last of the “Four Blood Moons” was seen last night. So far, nothing very significant has happened. Would you please be more specific?
If you say you are sorry for misleading me and won’t do it again, I will forgive you. I do love you and think your heart was in the right place. I just don’t know where your head was!
We do both have this in common, we both love The Lord, know He is sovereign, and expect His return to Jerusalem.
However, we seem to have two too many moons and one solar eclipse that only polar bears could witness!
The signs of implosion were all over the place, John. The most often use of the sun, moon and stars in the Bible are as literal objects to give light and to mark the seasons.
Thou hast made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting. Psa. 104:19
The celestial objects do obey the Lord.
Then spoke Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD gave the Amorites over to the men of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand thou still at Gibeon, and thou Moon in the valley of Aijalon.” Josh. 10:12
And, significantly, they are also used in visions, dreams and prophecy as a symbol.
Then he dreamed another dream, and told it to his brothers, and said, “Behold, I have dreamed another dream; and behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” Gen. 37:9
Yes, the magi were led by a star. Scholars believe because Daniel the prophet knew the year of Messiah’s birth and death (Dan. 9; 490 years from the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple) his students, and fellow Magi knew as well. It would be a (not so simple for me) mathematical calculation that they would be looking for a certain star to be in a certain place.
“Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him.” Matt. 2:2
But John, your math doesn’t add up!
The Bible uses blood moon four times, two are about the day of Pentecost. Pentecost is about The Day of The Lord. That means, John, it is not about the tribulation or the second coming. See Also: Last Days
The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes. Joel 2:31
but this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;
yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.
And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day. Acts 2:16-20
The descending of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost was the subject of this prophecy; not trouble in Israel; not the beginning of a tribulation; not the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. I need for you to acknowledge your inattention to proper interpretation of scripture, and your down-right sloppiness.
That leaves only two Blood Moons left. Your theory is wanting.
Wasn’t part of the idea of the Four Blood Moons that the sun will become dark? Did that happen in any of the Four Blood Moons to date? Oh it did, off a little-bitty island between Greenland and Norway. Not seen in Israel; not reported widely. How can this be a portend? If we cannot see the event, as the Church or even in Israel, how are God’s people “warned.”
It is a Biblical truth that The Lord will return. He told us so. He said we would not know the day or the hour. And while it is entirely plausible that His glorious return will coincide with the fall Feasts, we have no idea which year.
Being wrong about predictions involving scripture deeply hurts our credibility in the eyes of unbelievers. It disappoints and wounds Christians who sincerely want to follow Jesus. It will cause some to deeply question if everything you teach is just as wrong!
To the other of John’s girls, you are to show yourself approved too. So, find a good Bible study pal and start working. No excuses!
