Tuesday morning was the first of four total lunar eclipses that will occur over the next 18 months. The total lunar eclipse is often called a blood moon because. . . science. Something about the light spectrum (explanation here, scroll down a bit). Why is the sky blue and all that jazz.
Apparently, some Christian numbskulls are saying this particular astronomical event foretells bad things for Israel. I don’t know, I honestly didn’t bother to look it up. For one thing, I don’t buy into Christian astrology any more than I buy into pagan astrology. I’m also not a big fan of fearmongers.
The other reason I don’t buy it, even if I did buy into Christian astrology, is simple logic. The tetrad of eclipses foretells something bad for Israel? Then why aren’t any of them visible from Israel?
So God decided to use an unusual astronomical series of events to warn Israel about impending . . . something or other, but decided not to let them see it. That makes sense.
Will something happen to Israel in the next couple of years? Well, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Israel is in the middle of a bunch of unstable countries, many of whom want to wipe them off the face of the earth. Something is always happening in and near Israel.

If something big does happen, the Christian astrologers get to say, “I told you so.” If something doesn’t happen, they can say, “I warned you and we prayed, so God averted the disaster.”
Columbus was able to manipulate Native Americans into continuing to giving him and his men a free ride using his knowledge of an upcoming total lunar eclipse. They had the excuse of not knowing what was coming. What’s our excuse? Christians, can we use our brains? Can we not listen to the fear-mongers and those who preach more superstitions than gospel?
Obviously, we ought to be continually praying for Israel, and for the whole world for that matter. You don’t have to look to the stars to realize there are hurting people everywhere. There are those who need to be rescued, those who need to be protected, and evildoers who need to be stopped. Do we really need a lunar eclipse to wake us up to the reality of a hurting and dangerous world?
What do I think about the lunar eclipse? I think “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.” I plan to enjoy every one of them, God willing. Without fear.
