Jesus warned followers “do not be deceived” as a dire warning before giving a chronology of events that would converge before the end of the age would take place. There were spiritual issues that would take place and astronomical signs in the heavens that would herald His return.
Of particular interest are the signs in the Earth, moon, and the stars which Christ articulated would be taking place. Naturally one can assume that the deception Jesus spoke about would also include those either looking to discredit or manufacture false hope that the return of Christ is near.
There are already legitimate signs working to fulfill what Christ stipulated in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 of the gospels. The fact that Hanukkah and Thanksgiving fell on the same day recently and not taking place again for tens of thousands of years is one indicator. The Tetrad Blood Moons is another valid signal that Jesus’ prophesy accompanying a heavenly demonstration pointing to human history is in the process of taking place. There are space probes on Mars and flying by Pluto that could be counted as a sign or wonder in the heaven since it is a splendid display of human technology as revealed by the prophet Daniel in the Old Testament. Speculation runs high regarding these activities and more.http://atombash.com/article/tetrad-blood-moons-is-this-the-sign-foretold-the-bible-for-our-time
However hoaxes are being manufactured to either “help God along” or to seduce Christians that are supposed to be not to savvy regarding science and intellectual issues. One fraud event was spun several years ago about Mars becoming the size of the sun during a period when it would be in close proximity to the Earth. Even products were being sold encourage those to take advantage of a unique opportunity.
Currently there is another counterfeit cosmic event being spun about darkness coming on the Earth for a period of two weeks this November when a “parallel event” will bring Venus and Jupiter together to create a consolidation of wild events that will darken the sun. Evidently someone with entirely too much time on their hands concocted an elaborate story allegedly including NASA and Vice President Joe Biden. Whoever fabricated this nonsense has a poor academic understanding of astronomy by claiming our sun would turn blue, an extremely hot classification for a star, and then return to its “red” status once the cycle is complete when our sun is a yellow star. One can anticipate a failed grade on a report card.
Nevertheless the story is churning interest on the Internet by those looking for signs and wonders in the heavens as declared by Christ or those laughing at Christians because of them not only being gullible but once again having a lack of intelligence regarding science. People fearful during the 2012 fiasco are being sucked in once again. There is something for everybody in this story about darkness coming upon the Earth this November.
There are already sufficient happenings taking place on the Earth and in the cosmos without people manufacturing events. Jupiter and Venus are hundreds of millions of miles apart and any proximity warning when Earth, Mars, and the asteroid belt are between Venus and Jupiter is really nothing to be concerned about.
Anyone’s heart failing them for fear is precisely what the Bible has warned.
