“Bloodmoon” – 2015.09.29
I’ll set wonders in the sky above
and signs on the earth below:
Blood and fire and billowing smoke,
the sun turning black and the moon blood-red,
Before the Judgment Day of God,
the Day tremendous and awesome.
Whoever calls, ‘Help, God!’
This morning you could see it: The moon was blood-red and dark. At this point you might get a strange feeling.
The Bible, the Word of God, gives us precise information about everything that’s going on. He, the Lord, controls history and the universe. He creates solar and lunar eclipses, as He wants to. Already thousands of years ago He has planned and programmed everything so that this lunar eclipse could happen today. And yet He says: Do not be afraid! Don’t let your heart get scared! For I am the Lord, and whoever is calling my name, is saved!
Many people are worried and scared when it comes to the doomsday. But Jesus says: "Don’t be afraid! Be sober and vigilant! Be safe in me! Because I protect those who belong to me. No one can snatch them out of my hand. I come to save them!"
But there are also the careless. The care about nothing. God sets a mark in the sky and they talk as if it was self-evident and totally commonplace. God does not set these characters for nothing! It is a warning for the careless. Once Jesus will come again and court will be held. But who seriously calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. But who mocks and laughs, who so acts as if our life on earth goes on forever, is already condemned.
Let us turn our hearts and our thoughts on Jesus! Let us get into a close connection with this living Lord! He alone saves us. Not only from the doomsday, but also in daily life. Nothing is too big or too small for Him. You are important to Him.
Thank you, Jesus, You are the Lord! Even if the world falls to pieces, I am secure in You. You are my savior! You preserve me from the court and protect me from misfortune. You take me through war, natural disasters, disease and death. It is You who has the last word!
