Big moon makes appearance on Jewish holiday Tu Bishvat

This week is a minor holiday in the Jewish calendar, Tu Bishvat (New Year of Trees) and again there is talk on the internet about the Blood Red Moons and End Times.

Here is the moon in Jerusalem, I’ve taken this from a reliable source of someone I know out there at the moment.

Here is the moon from the camera of my phone (1/2/2018) Thursday of this week, its the thing in the middle, it looked not red at the time, but very big and clear.

Note I’m an average Christian, saved by grace and not law, of non-Jewish descent, and not a Hebrew Roots guy but worked with Jewish people for a number of years and prefer to have a non-ambiguous approach to my faith.)    I like to use Jewish holidays to meet up with Jewish friends, but I don’t fully observe them and definitely don’t force them on Christian or secular friend.

In the past, the whole Blood Red Moons thing got a bit ridiculous amongst hysteria online but I think God could be trying to get our attention, by coinciding events in the Jewish holiday with the movement of planets in the sky. 

I see it as this, to get right with God, seek Christ alone, and pray for our nation and communities.

last days hysteriaLately been concerned some Christians get into a panic over end times.   Its disturbing when some people want God’s judgement on <insert_least_favourite_country>

It is simply not our job to do this.   Our job is disciple others, get our own lives in order, and worship God.

The whole blood red moons has got people into a tizzy, with signs in the sky coinciding with Jewish holidays.    I just have a wait and see attitude on these things.

I believe we are in latter times, and there is a increase in wickedness.  I do worry with the rise and even bigger rise of radical Islam, gender and marriage revisionism from militant LGBTQ movements, more abortion, churches and Christian groups going off on tangents.

However Jesus never told us to buy tins of beans, ammunition and hide in a bunker.   He told us to trust in him.

Here is a really good article by Charisma magazine.
