It’s a constant battle. Millions of Christians are preoccupied with the last days. Changes in weather patterns, earthquakes, wars, Mideast squabbles, goings on in Russia, Europe, and China. You name it, and it’s been used as an end-time sign.
You would think that by now people who fall for these types of predictions would have learned their lessons.
To escape the hardships of reality, some people turn to drugs and alcohol. Other people just drop out. In evangelical circles, there are many who embrace an end-time paradigm that will rescue from the unknown and the evils of the day. Escape in a “rapture” is a comfort to those who assess world conditions.
Some use last-days-talk to scare people into the kingdom. “Repent and believe or you’ll miss the rapture. Antichrist is alive somewhere in the world today. The world can’t go on much longer. Jesus is coming soon.”

BIBLICAL prophecy suggests the end of days is due this month as the Earth is set to witness a rare blood moon – doomsday preachers have claimed. Preachers believe passages from the books of Acts and Revelation suggest the blood moon will accompany an ever-approaching end of days. The 21st century’s longest lunar eclipse will last almost two hours on July 27 and the moon will have a spectacular red tinge. While stargazers enjoy the dazzling phenomenon, doomsdayers will be preparing for Armageddon.
The theory was originally made famous by Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz who said the ongoing “tetrad” – four consecutive lunar eclipses which began in April 2014 with six full moons in between – is the indicator of the end of earth as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.

There have been numerous stellar phenomena in the past few years that prophecy “experts” have claimed were and are signs of the end. These types of events have been going on for millennia. There’s nothing unusual about them, and that includes so-called blood moons and lunar and solar eclipses…
