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.
