Repent, the end is near
So the first of four consecutive blood moons will occur tomorrow, April 15. Many conspiracy theorists and religious fanatics believe that God intentionally made them coincident with seminal events regarding Israel. But Passover is already scheduled to the lunar calendar, so it's not really a divine event in my mind. That blood moon.
Many preachers are raising money on the notion that God made all this happen in order to send us a cryptic message about the end of times or something, but for that to be the case, He would have had to alter the orbits of Earth and moon, as well as the position of the sun in the solar system. Does anybody think He did that just to send a message to dumb humans?
Lunar eclipses happen all the time and while unusual, there's nothing divinely indicated because four of them are happening within an 18 month period.....it's not divine, just interesting.
