Revelation 6:12 – I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

I’m off to see the lunar eclipse tonight. The eclipse will begin at 2018 GMT, with the Moon totally immersed in the shadow of the Earth between 2244 and 2358 GMT. The Bible says that in the end times there will be something like a lunar eclipse with the moon becoming like blood. However, I don’t agree with some commentators that say that Revelation 6 IS a lunar eclipse. Why? Well firstly, the passage describes a time of God’s wrath and God doesn’t need to use a lunar eclipse to make the moon red. Secondly the verse also states that the sun didn’t shine. Without the sun there would be no lunar eclipse.

Anyway – maybe I’ll post some picture here later if the clouds don’t get in the way.

  1. well that was a short outing. I went into the forest – looked at the moon. Got cold. Drove home. Apparently nothing will start until 2145is so I’ll go out again then,

  2. A few years ago here in Australia we had a full moon eclipse.

    Unfortunately I was suffering with a massive migraine that night, but luckily my husband went out to see what all the fuss is about and he came into the room where I was trying to sleep and he said …. ‘you gotta see this’.

    I was not all that impressed with him that he had disturbed me from my miserable state. But when I went outside to see this moon that was literally blood red, I was so grateful he had woken me.

    It was one of those must see moments.

  3. I’m going to be looking out for the eclipse tonight, although it’s awfully cloudy, I hope it will be visible.

    Red moon is a sign or end times.
