The frequent occurrence of blood moons in recent years has attracted the attention of many biblical scholars. This is because the blood moon prophesied in the Book of Revelation indicates the coming of the day of God’s judgment and portends the occurrence of major events. According to meteorological reports from many countries and the statements of astronomers, May 26 will see the biggest blood moon of this year. A rare celestial phenomenon will then appear in the sky: A super blood moon with red color will happen during a total lunar eclipse, appearing bigger and brighter than a typical full moon. There are records of blood moons all over the world, and blood moons are often regarded as precursors of disasters or unusual events.
Looking back to history, we will surprisedly discover that there were great events following the appearance of blood moons.
A blood moon, a total lunar eclipse occurred on November 9, 2003. And that year SARS hit Hong Kong.
On April 15, 2014, there was a total lunar eclipse (blood moon) which was the first of four consecutive total eclipses in a series, a rare astronomical phenomenon which only occurred four times in the past 500 years. On the 16th, a ferry sank in South Korea, leaving more than 300 people dead.
On March 29, 2021, many people in Taipei saw a blood moon in the night sky. Three days later, on April 2, a Taroko Express train operated by the Taiwan Railways Administration derailed, causing severe death and injury, which shocked international opinion.
Many people cannot help but worry: Big events will happen each time after the advent of a blood moon. Then what will happen this time? Meanwhile, they are concerned about our mankind’s fate in the future. As Christians, then, how should we view the appearance of this blood moon?
With the Fulfillment of Bible Prophecies, the Great and Terrible Day of Jehovah Is Coming
It is known to us all that there are many verses about the blood moon in the Bible. Joel 2:29–31 prophesied, “And also on the servants and on the handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Jehovah comes.” And in Revelation 6:12, “And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, and, see, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.” In recent years, blood moons have appeared many times, such as the series of four blood moons that appeared through 2014 and 2015, the super blue blood moon of 2018, which also occurred 152 years ago, and the super blood wolf moon that appeared on 21st January 2019. Many seers firmly believe that the appearance of blood moons is the fulfillment of the Bible prophecies, and that the great and terrible day of Jehovah is near. In today’s world, wars and disasters such as earthquakes, droughts, floods, and plagues occur frequently in various countries. The world situation is constantly changing, and the atmosphere is getting warmer. Especially, the unexpected COVID-19 pandemic has been sweeping the world since 2020. It can be seen that great disasters press close upon mankind. The Lord Jesus said long ago, “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:6–8). The appearance of these signs is sufficient to prove that the biblical prophecies have been fulfilled and that the day of the Lord’s return has arrived.
Almighty God says, “Open your eyes and look, and you can see My great power everywhere! You can be certain of Me everywhere. The cosmos and the firmament are spreading My great power. The words I have spoken have come true in the warming of the weather, in climate change, in abnormalities within people, in the disorder of social dynamics, and in the deceit within people’s hearts. The sun whitens and the moon reddens; it all is out of balance. Do you really still not see these things?” “All manner of disasters will befall, one after another; all nations and places will experience calamities: Plague, famine, flood, drought, and earthquakes are everywhere. These disasters are not just happening in one or two places, nor will they be over within a day or two; rather, instead they will expand across a greater and greater area, and become more and more severe. During this time, all manner of insect plagues will arise one after another, and the phenomenon of cannibalism will occur everywhere. This is My judgment upon all nations and peoples.”
From these words of God, we can see that the occurrence of various disasters is the sign of the last days as prophesied in the Bible, and this firmly proves that the Lord has returned. The occurrence of disasters is on the one hand reminding us that the Lord has returned; on the other hand, it is God’s chastisement of this evil age. At this crucial time, how should we receive the Lord’s return?
How to Welcome the Lord’s Return and Be Protected From Disasters
The Bible records, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 2:7). “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27). To welcome the Lord, the most important thing is to listen for God’s voice. If we can recognize God’s voice from the words spoken by the returned Lord, we will be able to keep up with the footsteps of the Lamb and receive the Lord’s return.
Now is the end of the last days. The Lord has already returned in the flesh to open the scroll and the seven seals. And He has expressed millions of words and done a stage of new work with the name of Almighty God. The book, The Word Appears in the Flesh, is the Bible of the Age of Kingdom. The words within the book are God’s current words, which have revealed all the mysteries in the Bible and told us all the truths we now need to understand and enter into. These words have been made publicly available online for mankind to seek out and consider. All true believers from across the world, who long for God’s appearance, have heard God’s voice, recognized the returned Lord, and been raptured before God’s throne to enjoy the lavish banquet of the Age of Kingdom. So, our urgent priority is to welcome the Lord’s return and receive God’s end-time salvation, for only by doing so will we have the chance to be protected by God from the disasters.
Let’s read three passages of Almighty God’s words. If you are a wise virgin who yearns for the Lord’s return, you will definitely be able to recognize God’s voice.
Almighty God says, “Throughout the universe I am doing My work, and in the East, thunderous crashes issue forth endlessly, shaking all nations and denominations. It is My voice that has led all men into the present. I cause all men to be conquered by My voice, to fall into this stream, and submit before Me, for I have long since reclaimed My glory from all the earth and issued it forth anew in the East. Who does not long to see My glory? Who does not anxiously await My return? Who does not thirst for My reappearance? Who does not pine for My loveliness? Who would not come to the light? Who would not look upon the richness of Canaan? Who does not long for the return of the Redeemer? Who does not adore Him who is great in power? My voice shall spread throughout the earth; I will face My chosen people and speak more words to them. Like the mighty thunders that shake the mountains and rivers, I speak My words to the whole universe and to mankind. Hence the words in My mouth have become man’s treasure, and all men cherish My words. The lightning flashes from the East all the way to the West. My words are such that man is loath to give them up and at the same time finds them unfathomable, but rejoices in them all the more. All men are glad and joyful, celebrating My coming, as if an infant had just been born. By means of My voice, I shall bring all men before Me. Thenceforth, I shall formally enter into the race of men so that they will come to worship Me. With the glory that I radiate and the words in My mouth, I shall make it such that all men come before Me and see that the lightning flashes from the East and that I have also descended unto the ‘Mount of Olives’ of the East. They will see that I have already long been on earth, no longer as the Son of the Jews but as the Lightning of the East. For I have long since been resurrected, and have departed from mankind’s midst, and then reappeared with glory among men. I am He who was worshiped countless ages before now, and I am also the infant forsaken by the Israelites countless ages before now. Moreover, I am the all-glorious Almighty God of the present age! Let all come before My throne and see My glorious countenance, hear My voice, and look upon My deeds. This is the entirety of My will; it is the end and the climax of My plan, as well as the purpose of My management: to have every nation worship Me, every tongue acknowledge Me, every man repose his faith in Me, and every people be subject unto Me!”
“The days will come to an end; all things in this world will come to nothing, and all things will be born anew. Remember this! Do not forget! There can be no ambiguity! Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall remain! Let Me exhort you once again: Do not run in vain! Wake up! Repent, and salvation is at hand! I have already appeared amongst you, and My voice has arisen. My voice has arisen before you; every day it confronts you, face-to-face, and each day it is fresh and new. You see Me and I see you; I speak to you constantly, and am face-to-face with you. Nevertheless, you reject Me and do not know Me. My sheep can hear My voice, yet still you hesitate! You hesitate! Your heart is waxed gross, your eyes have been blinded by Satan, and you cannot see My glorious countenance — how pitiful you are! How pitiful!
“The seven Spirits before My throne have been sent to all corners of the earth and I will send My Messenger to speak to the churches. I am righteous and faithful; I am the God that examines the deepest parts of man’s heart. The Holy Spirit speaks to the churches, and it is My words that issue forth from inside My Son; all those who have ears should listen! All those who are living should accept! Simply eat and drink of them, and do not doubt. All those who submit and heed My words will receive great blessings! All those who seek My countenance in earnest will surely have new light, new enlightenment, and new insights; all will be fresh and new. My words will appear to you at any time, and they will open the eyes of your spirit so that you can see all the mysteries of the spiritual realm and see that the kingdom is among man. Enter the refuge, and all grace and blessings will be upon you; famine and plague will not be able to touch you, and wolves, serpents, tigers, and leopards will be unable to harm you. You will go with Me, walk with Me, and enter glory with Me!”
Brothers and sisters, the Lord is knocking on the door; have you recognized the voice of God?
