Can We Stop The Blood Moon Madness?

9 · 28 · 15


The title of of this post is both a plea and a question.

Let’s begin with my plea.

As a Christian and a believer in Christ’s return, I wish

Believers, across the spectrum, would stop hyping these events as “end of times” phenomenons.

I wish they’d stop lauding the inkling, let alone “prophecies”, of so called prophets.

I wish we’d quit buying book after book about these supposed prophecies and and then buying follow up books about why the events of the last book did not happen the way these prophets said.

Now for the question, Can we stop the Blood Moon Madness?

No. It’s in our blood and spirit to look to the Eastern skies and to look for signs of the coming of the Lord. I believe it’s in man’s DNA to  long for what’s next; an ache and a pain to look beyond the stars and beyond this life.

I have no problem with being alert and discerning of world events. We should be.

Jesus said

The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. 2But He replied to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’“And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?…

We can’t stop what Scripture commands us, as believers to do. But we can  stop

The hype

The grandstanding.

The over glorification of “prophets”: and their ministries.

We can stop buying the books, the downloads, and paying the conference fees.

We can love Jesus, expect his return with joy, in God’s timing, and say with John the Revelator, “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Rev. 22;20

But don’t worry doomsday disciples The Blood Moon is come and gone, but it will be back 2033.  Fire up your keyboards, get your marketing machine ready, and start thinking of a snappy name for that book that will tells us poor lost sheep everything we need to know.
