How many rivers have we counted turning blood red over the past 2 years? I have lost count, but nothing exists in a vacuum right? We are in the midst of a blood moon tetrad occurring on our Lord's feast days. What is so significant about this tetrad? It is a sign from the Lord that cannot be faked by the imitators here on earth. We have seen years and years of in your face 'illuminati' signs and symbols that have added up to zero, absolutely nothing. We know what they want to do, we know they temporarily control the levers of power in this world, but so what? The Lord is still sitting on His throne in heaven, and He has sent us unmistakable signs in the heavens.
Just look at what has happened since the first bloon moon of the tetrad. If you knew nothing else, the appearance of ISIS in the middle east along with war in Israel (gaza/Hamas) and war brewing with Russia.and the United States over: Syria, Ukraine, The new BRICs bank setup this past week and a number of other issues should have your attention.
Each and every one of these blood moons should have our full attention. The events that have followed the first blood moon have been impressive but it is the fall feasts and fall blood moons that should have us particularly watchful. When was the largest terrorist attack on American soil? Sept 11. When did the stock market plummet in 2008? Sept 20. We have not spoken recently about the cyclic patterns of very large earthquakes but when have they occurred up through this very year? Spring (March-April) and fall (Sept-Oct).
As this article also proves, we have seen a pattern of blood red rivers showing up across the world in Holland, Beirut, China etc. We have blood moons, blood red rivers, gee do you think Someone (look up) is trying to tell us something?
To the carnal person all of this is useless nonsense but to those who have the Spirit they are neon signs that advertise approaching danger. Blood moons, and blood red rivers have been given as signs for a reason. What does this world have in store for itself?
Rev 6:8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the living creatures of the earth.
A fourth part is one quarter or 25%. In 2012 there were around 7 billion people on the earth. So what is 7 billion times 25%? Thats 1.75 billion people dead, and that is just the opening salvo of what is to come.
Blood moons, and blood red rivers have been given as signs and yet most people are asleep. They are complacent and believe everything will go on as it always has. This calls for patience. The signs are everywhere and increasing. For example, remember comet Elenin, and ISON, the space rock that hit Chelablyinsk Russia etc and in general the space rock threat that has been staring us down for years? It has not been followed here but guess what just happened in the recent past? Mars was just smacked really hard. So what? It could have been us....Earth will have its turn, but what happened to Mars is also a warning. What do we know without speculation? This will happen:
The Seventh Seal
1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2And I saw the seven angels who stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The First Trumpet Sounded
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The Second Trumpet Sounded
8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
The Third Trumpet Sounded
10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Notice with me that these trumpets all "fall down" from the sky. Also notice the second trumpet, what happens? Something that looks like a great burning mountain falls into the sea, then what happens?
"and the third part of the sea became blood;"
Blood moons, blood red rivers and a third of the sea will become blood....
What is the take away from all this brother D?
These signs are for us, not the wicked. The Lord is going to hammer this earth in every way imaginable and yet people, the wicked will not repent. Proof?
18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, with heads, and with them they do hurt.
20And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, and silver, and bronze, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
If the wicked will be pummeled and still not repent, who are the signs for? The believers. We see what is happening today (blood moons and blood rivers) and we know what is coming (the book of Revelation). These signs are for us to encourage and to warn. Unless a person is spiritually dead, the hairs on the back of their neck should be standing up at the signs that have already been presented to us warning of what is still to come.
Should we be afraid? Yes and no. We should have no worldly fear but we should greatly have the fear of God within us. Those who say they do not fear the Lord are very foolish. Do I fear the Lord? You bet I do. I love Him and I fear Him. I fear the consequences of sin and wickedness, anyone who does not is foolish.
What should we do in light of all these signs? The only refuge is being "in Christ." Our God is a real fortress and a real refuge from the storm. Noah and Lot understood this perfectly. What is coming will come upon all those on the face of the whole earth. What is coming is a spiritual storm that requires spiritual protection and guidance. Both of these are abundantly provided and available through the Spirit of Christ Jesus our Lord.
done for today.
grace and peace
