Blood Moon Rising

Tonight, or early morning tomorrow, depending on where you are on the planet, there will be a lunar eclipse which will produce a “Blood Moon”. While some have used this phenomenon as an occasion for speculation regarding the end of days I am reminded of the Y2K worries that captivated our thoughts not so long ago. The turning of time from 1999 to 2000 was heralded as a cataclysmic moment. It was feared that the computers that we all have become so dependent on would shut down causing business collapse and hysteria. Thankfully these things did not happen. Life went on without a hick up.

Now, with much less fanfare, there are whispers on the news and internet that this Blood Moon is a sign from God signalling the beginning of the end!! Well, like Y2K, time will tell if these fears are founded or not. But the bigger question is – So What? So, if it is the beginning of the end what can we, or more importantly – YOU, do about it?! If we all hold our breath at the same time can we hold back the hand of God? If we stay up tonight fearfully clinging to the people and things we love will God have compassion on us and change His mind? Obviously the answer to these questions is NO! There is nothing that we as mere mortals can do to put off what God has determined to be. That is, if this is the beginning of the end. If it’s not we will wake up tomorrow and face the day ahead just as we did this morning and yesterday and the day before that. This Blood Moon will disappear in our rear view mirror as we forge on ahead unaffected by its passing.

Unless, of course, we use this natural cosmic event as a reminder of our helplessness to defend ourselves from things so massively bigger then us. We could also use this event as a cause for reflection and soul searching. What if the end were coming? Are we ready? Are you ready? Am I ready? There are more prophecies concerning the end of days ahead than the birth of Christ (which all were fulfilled to the T). Christ told us Himself that a day is coming when the world as we know it will be changed. So, if the evening news dedicates a 90 second spot to the Red Moon tonight, listen and ask yourself – “What if?” or “Am I ready?” I hope and pray that we all are ready when that day comes no matter when that should be. Be Blessed – Al

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Ps. 19:1 NIV

After the Event! – Ready or Not part 2

Oh Dear Betty I miss you so much. I talk to you constantly because I hope you can hear me and because the thought of talking to myself this much is frightening. It’s been a week since you left and I am dieing here without you. A week since the mass abduction – the “official” title given to the event, but what they are saying just doesn’t make any sense. They said the visitors wanted to move the narrow-minded religious people who were holding us back and yet all the children are gone too. It seems anyone under the age of 21 can not be found. When pressed about this they refused to comment. Their story doesn’t add up and I don’t think I am the only one questioning it.  Why take the innocent ones? Surely the little children weren’t holding humanity back from the next big step in evolution. I just don’t get it.

They said that there will have to be a restructuring of the monetary system worldwide. So many people are gone and the resulting panic has caused a crisis. The rumor is that we will all pool our resources and hand over our cash, plastic and anything else worth value and in return be given a corresponding virtual account. They say we will do business electronically wherever we go to buy something a debit will be made using a scanner and our ID. Someone said that the best way to avoid identity theft and robbery is to put the ID “in” us. Like a chip in our hand or something. They must be moving quickly on this because we have been told to report to our nearest firehouse, police station or post office to surrender our money and credit cards and accept the new system. Why not do this at the banks? So many questions and very little answers.

The whole town is so busy. Homes, now empty, are being cleaned of all personal objects of those gone and designated as “available” but I haven’t found out what that means. Jimmy, next door, says they are going to be given to homeless people but I don’t believe that. The government cant just take a home and give it away – can they? The DPW has been busy putting up towers but not cell phone towers. These are different, kinda like the old radio towers with a tall singular antenna on the top. Like everything else around here its all very hush-hush.

The news, which is broadcasting constantly, tells us that there has been a rise in suicide attempts but none too successful. It almost seems as if you can’t die even if you want to. The looting that took place immediately after the event was quickly put to an end by the Supreme. I still can’t get over that title. The Supreme – supreme what? He shows up outta nowhere and everyone calls him the guy with the answers. He starts barking orders and the world jumps. He promises a new era of peace and prosperity but will threaten to go to war with anyone who even opens their mouth against him or his plan. He had the police and military kill the looters and put their bodies on display – on TV and the internet – as an example to all. Yeah, the looting stopped alright. In fact crime is down to nearly zero since he showed up.

Some people are calling him god-like. But the priest that he calls The Instructor hasn’t said that….yet. What the Instructor has said is that the diversity of faiths must stop and we all must get under the united banner of Singularity – a new concept where many become One. Churches, synagogues and all other houses of faith are being stripped of any symbols and the flag of Singularity is being raised high over each doorway. Singularity. If the TV isn’t showing the news of the Supreme’s plan being put into action,  its telling us all about the peace and serenity that awaits us when we “become One” with each other through this new religion.

I still can’t help but think that this guy and his plan were just waiting in the wings for something to bring him out. His plan seems too complex to be thrown together in this short of a time. The pieces of the puzzle called his plan require a lot of planing, building, people and money. You get all this done in one week. It’d take a week to get a committee appointed to look into how to address a crisis of this size. It smells fishy……and frightening.

Dear God. Betty why didn’t I listen to you? Is it really too late for me? Will someone please tell us the truth?

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name Rev 13:16-17 KJV

Jesus, however, invited them: “Let the little children come to Me, and don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:16 HCSB

Ready or Not……

No wait! What just happened?!

We were just talking to each other

You were in the bedroom getting dressed and I was making coffee in the kitchen.

You were HERE. Where did you go? You were here. I know it. Even the dogs are looking for you. What is going on?

TV announcement – we interrupt our regular schedule for this breaking story. The news coming in from all over the world, as unbelievable as it sounds, just moments ago, thousands perhaps millions of people apparently just disappeared. We will go to our man in the street were chaos has broken out as cars have been abandoned and hysteria is………………..

What! What? Wait a minute this is a prank. This can’t be really happening. It sure looks real. The city is a mess and that reporter looks more upset then the day the Towers fell. No, this can’t be happening. Sirens are sounding in the distance. People are screaming and running in the streets….

Betty where are you? Come on Babe. Come on. Come out. Come back. Please dear God, please!

What are they saying now? What! UFO’s?! Alien abductions! REALLY?!?! How do they know that already? This is defiantly a prank. This can not be real. How could they possible know what caused this already? Did they see it coming?

No, no. This is not happening, I have to call…..my phone doesn’t work. Lines must be jammed, too many people trying to make calls. I feel sick.

Who’s this guy? They put him in charge? Who? How? The President announced him and he sure seems confident. Looks sharp and calm but I don’t get how he is in charge. What does he know? What? He met with them (the aliens??) and they told him that if the world was going to make its next step evolutionarily there were some who would have to be relocated to a safe but remote place. Those whose old-fashioned mind-set and self-righteous moral superiority were inhibiting the rest of us from moving forward in our growth……….

No No! I’m not buying it. This seems so staged. There’s no way that they gathered this much info this quickly – it’s been 30 minutes, not even that long. Betty was getting dressed and she usually leaves at………

Wait. She told me about this. I think. Betty used to say that there was a day coming when Jesus was going to take His people home. But, who believes that. I always listened and laughed inside, knowing it would never happen. I used to kid her when we got separated at a store or street fair – Oh I thought God took you! She would always say – some day.

This can’t be that day. No, it can’t be. It can’t be because there’s a priest on the TV now with this guy and he’s here. If God took all His people home then that priest wouldn’t be here, right. Betty! Where are you!?!?……………….

Tribulatios Escape

Watch this and consider where we are and where you are…..ready or not?

 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 KJV

Brothers and sisters, we want you to know about those Christians who have died so you will not be sad, as others who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and that he rose again. So, because of him, God will raise with Jesus those who have died. What we tell you now is the Lord’s own message. We who are living when the Lord comes again will not go before those who have already died. The Lord himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. And those who have died believing in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive will be gathered up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words. 1 Thess 4:13-18 NCV
