I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.
Maybe the wing-nuts are right that the
commie Muslim Kenyan usurper is leading us straight into the apocalypse. Not only has the brilliant brain of Michele Bachmann deduced this fact(?)
, but according to megachurch minister John Hagee,
the signs are in the calendar and in the skies.
The Reverend Mr. Hagee has discovered that there are four (count-em 4) blood moons this year. No, the old girl isn’t hemorrhaging the red stuff. A blood moon is called that because in a total eclipse, the moon turns red as it passes through earth’s shadow. Btw, in scientific terms four blood moons in a year is called a “lunar tetrad”.
According to Rev. Hagee, this particular lunar tetrad, combined with a solar eclipse, heralds the apocalypse or the rapture or the 2nd coming maybe.
As the reverend tells it, Hebrew tradition says the moon is a signal to Israel and the sun is a signal to the rest of us.
God sends plant Earth a signal that something big is about to happen! He’s controlling the Sun and the moon right now to send our generation a signal, but the question is, are we getting it?
Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
The Reverend wrote a book, Blood Moons: Something is About to Change,
on the subject. (Of course, he did. Book royalties come in handy when you’re raptured.)
He’s predicting that a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”
I believe that the heavens are God’s billboard, that he has been sending signals to planet Earth. God is literally screaming at the world, ‘I’m coming soon.’
To celebrate the night of the first blood moon, (4/15/15) the good reverend is airing a program
in which he will reveal “direct connections between four upcoming blood-moon eclipses and what they portend for Israel and all of humankind.”
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
The fact that there are four total eclipses this year is unusual but not unique. You can go 300 years without one, or as in the next 300 years, have 17 of them. (Eight in this century.)
But then, the Reverend Mr. Hagee isn’t the only one who’s hip to the news.
Here’s Mother Michele Bachmann, sharing her insights with Jan Markell a couple of weeks ago:
It’s just like the Bible forewarned: in the last days it will be like the beginning of birth pangs. In my opinion, we are far beyond the beginning of birth pangs. We’re moving far down into the process…we are literally watching month by month the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events. Barack Obama is intent, it is his number one goal, to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon. Why? Why would you put the nuclear weapon in the hands of mad men?
Michelle doesn’t seem too upset as the end draws near.
We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus. So do we despair? The despairing is that we see that our world is not going the way of salvation and the way of blessing, the world is embracing degeneracy.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
