There are many reasons to dispel the omens or signs that are preached to us in a civilized and modern society. Over the centuries, many stories have been told that makes us realize that there is some truth to the fact that for everything there is a reason under the stars of heaven. Certainly, looking for signs has been one way to become aware of these catastrophes or disasters, so it is told. Another method is the constant writings, reporting and other venues out there telling us the end of days is upon us.
Looking at some of these so-called signs, the coming of the ‘blood moon’ on September 27th 2015, is the latest of these ‘bad omens’ as it quickly approaches and signals the end of summer and the beginning of Fall. World-wide, people are preparing for the apocalypse, the end of the world or end of days as it has been commonly called by many.
One has to only believe what they have heard to recognize there are many signs in our lives. Signs are like bookmarks or visual messages that may denote good or evil happenings in our lifetime. Some take these signs to an extreme and call them the means to be enlightened by the things or event to come in the future. They pay so much attention these signs; they rearrange their personal and professional lives to accommodate their personal beliefs.
Paying attention to these signs has created chaotic type of panic among the populations of the world. Some are stocking up ammunition, food and water for the apocalypse while others are building structures out of concrete, reinforced with steel beams to keep out the evil or destruction that comes with such a calamity or disaster. The fear is real and the thoughts are spreading that the bad omen of the ‘blood moon’ will bring nothing but ruin, famine, natural disasters and death.
Thus the genesis of our civilized world is now coming to an end according to those who believe this to be so written and said in a biblical manner. They spout their words with panic and anxiety that they are looking at the heavens for signs or messages from our creator, God, and prepare for the dooms day scenario.
Basically speaking, a blood moon is considered to be a bad omen for the world. Combining the fact that 2014 and 2015 has four (4) signs coming from the heavens it is told to be part of a tetrad (foursome) message because of the world’s four (4) total lunar eclipses occurring in an unbroken sequence which in this case includes a blood moon. Ironically, this blood moon also occurs within the holy days and that is supposed to make the omen even stronger and believable.
Whether I believe in this or not, it doesn’t matter. Life begins with birth and ends with death. A circle of life we accept as we grow older. This fear of death is unwarranted and hardly worth any special considerations if you accept the fact that this is indeed a part of a natural chain of events, a cause and effect of life itself. Of course, my compassion is for our children who know nothing of what is said around them and if true, fall to be the true victims of this phenomenon.
Whether or not this is the true version of man’s ‘perfect storm’ condition is yet to be determined. We can speculate that the tetrad of 2014 /2015 is indeed the final and defined sign that the world is ending. Neither a believer nor non-believer, I can see this happening as another sign we have come a society of disbelievers and fear-mongering habits that prey on the weak to exploit the fears in their minds and somehow profit from their anxieties.
