This Sunday is a Super Blood Moon. By the weather predictions, we likely won’t get to see it. Why bring up the Super Blood Moon? Because some Christians and even some Christian leaders are making predictions about Jesus’ return.
The prophet Joel records, “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.” Joel 2:31
With such a prophesy some are packing their proverbial bags for heaven. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.
Jesus said, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 24:36
So, don’t make predictions. Is Joel 2 correct yes! But we don’t know when Jesus is coming back, just that he is. Are there signs in the sky and on the earth that his return is close, yes (just read all of Matthew 24). Jesus first disciples lived with eager expectancy of his return and we should as well. Jesus said “you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect” (Matthew 24:44). So, don’t get ready because of a blood moon, get ready because Jesus said get ready.
Are you ready to see Jesus? He could come this Super Blood Moon weekend, during the next Super Bowl, or he could be coming in 200 years. We don’t know when but what we do know is how we must respond to his returning…trust him as your Savior and Lord. If you are not sure you are ready for his return, contact us, someone from our church would love to talk with you and help you get your bags packed to meet Jesus.
