Blood moon wlll be visible from the Cayman Islands

(CNS): The final lunar eclipse in a series of blood moons that started in April last year should be one to watch out for later this month, the Cayman Islands Astronomical Society has said. The eclipse will start on Sunday 27 September a little after sunset and sky-watchers in Cayman will be well placed for a great view of the five hour long eclipse. However, not everyone is looking forward to the astronomical phenomenon, as some claim it will bring a massive world-ending meteor strike.

Some Christian groups believe that because this is the fourth consecutive lunar eclipse since April 2014, it is part of a “tetrad”, which foretells the end of time. However, scientists at NASA, the organisation which keeps a close eye on near earth objects such as asteroids, said that none are on course to collide with Earth for several hundred years.

But with the doomsayers managing to convince a number of people in the United States at least, the space agency released a statement reassuring the public that the world is likely to carry on spinning on Monday 28 September.

“NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small,” said a spokesperson. “In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.”

Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz claim the consecutive lunar eclipses indicate the end of earth as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.

Scientists, however, say that the blood moon is a spectacular natural phenomena caused by the reflection of sunlight on the Earth’s atmosphere, which is red to the naked eye.

    Well if the Christians read their Bible properly they will see that not all the signs of the end have happened yet for the end to come. There are still many signs left to take place. But yes we are in the ending of the world as we know it, but the end is not going to take place yet until all the signs of all the prophecies are fulfilled. Still some years left to go. Sorry John Hagee and Mark Blitz, you need to re-study Bible prophecy. Their is still time left for harvesting of souls, the end is not upon us yet, soon to be though, but not this close yet. It’s all in the signs of prophecies being fulfilled. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand the Bible prophecies as you read through them, then it will become clear through God’s Holy Spirit helping you instead of chasing after men’s wrong interpretations. The Holy Spirit will teach all things. God clearly says that all his prophecies will come to pass, every single one of them, and God does not change like the shifting shadows or shifting sands, God is not a man that he should lie. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His Word is Yes and Amen.

    But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26

    But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. John 16:13

    “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19

    34″Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 35″Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. Matthew 24:34-35

    So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

    But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. 1 John 2:27

    the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

    For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. 2 Cor 1:20

    7Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. 9Do not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, through which those who were so occupied were not benefited.… Hebrews 13:7-9

    29″My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30″I and the Father are one.” John 10:29-30

    15“If you love me, keep my commands. 16And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you. 18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14: 15-18

    Hi CNS, respectfully it is ‘tetrad’ not ‘tertrad’.

    The spiritual community is originally referencing Genesis 1:14 which states:

    And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,

    So yes, it is possible to see how this time could be construed as a time of divine intervention.

    All the best to Cayman. Intervention may not be immediate like the pushing of a button, but it is certain.

    CNS: Thanks – I have made the spelling change.

    We are powerful spiritual beings capable of great love and yet we choose to manifest great evil. Love will always win and is not to be confused with sin.
