The End Times are Near? GOP Candidate Among Those Warning the Blood Moon is Likely a Sign of Doom and Gloom

For those at you who gazed up at the moon yesterday, you may have noticed it looked a little red.

That is because a unique phenomenon was making the night sky a little more colorful – a blood moon.

According to NASA, the blood moon is the result of a lunar eclipse.

For End Times preachers and at least one Congressional candidate, though, it was a likely harbinger of doom, gloom, and the end of the world.

Pastor Mark Biltz literally wrote the book on blood moon doom-talk. Earlier this week, he explained just how the blood moon was nothing less than a sign of the end of the world.

“All these signs, coming together at one time, are potentially the culminating signals that God is closing this chapter of human history,” Biltz said. “This could be the final curtain call before the Great Tribulation mentioned in the Bible. God has always wanted to warn His people, and the rest of the world, before He intervenes. What better way to communicate to us than through the universal language of heavenly signs that speak to every tribe, tongue, and nation?”

On Wednesday morning, WND sent an e-mail to their faithful warning how the moon and current event spelled doom.

“If Wednesday morning’s total lunar eclipse – the second so-called blood moon – is indeed a culminating signal that God is closing this chapter of human history, then consider history’s path since the last blood moon occurred in April,” the conservative site warned.

“The death toll from the newly identified Ebola virus had not yet reached 150, all in Liberia and Guinea … far from the United States.Early reports of crucifixions and other atrocities in Syria did not yet have the labels ISIL, ISIS or IS in most people’s minds,” they said. “Something big is happening in the world and in time.”

Even Georgia Congressional candidate Jody Hice – who incidentally also thinks looking cross-eyed at a transgender person will soon be illegal as a hate crime – has said on own radio show to warn that the blood moon is a sign that could signal “world changing events” and people should heed the warning from God about the doom in store for the planet.
