The Blood Moon is happening tonight, September 27th – 28th, 2015… What is the Blood Moon or “Super Moon” as some call it?

Some say the Blood Moon signals the End of the World. They say this based on Blood Moons and Jewish Holy Days…

Is the Blood Moon Biblical?

Peter speaks of the Blood Moon in Acts 2:20

The Prophet Joel speaks of the Blood Moon in Joel 2:31

John speaks of it in Revelation 6:12

Why are people always trying to predict a date for the end of the world?

Is it important for us to know when Jesus will return?

There were those in the first century who thought Christ had returned already or He was about to return.

Paul wrote to the believers in the church in Thessalonica because they were concerned about the return of Christ and the End of the world. In his letter Paul tells these believers what’s really important about the return of Christ; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18;

Paul explains further that they don’t need anyone to write a book about when the world will end; 1 Thessalonians 5:1 -3

Paul tells believers that even though they don’t know the date of the Lord’s return, they won’t be taken by surprise when it happens; 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5

How should we prepare for the End of the World and the Return of Christ? Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:6-8

  • Keep ready…
  • Keep calm…

How do we stay ready and calm?

  • Let your emotions be tempered with faith & love;
  • Let your mind be tempered with our hope in salvation;

Paul’s conclusion is very clear and simply – Protect your heart and your head…

So is it important for us to know the date the world ends?
