Pastor Mark Biltz joined guest host Rob Simone (email) for a discussion on how to understand the divine link between prophecy, heavenly signs, historical events, and when they intersect. Biltz credited witnessing a total lunar eclipse, known as a Blood Moon, over Temple Mount in Jerusalem in 2008 for setting him on the path to find "God's divine appointments" in celestial occurrences. The Bible records that in the Last Days the sun would turn to sack cloth and the moon to blood, he explained. According to Biltz, God created the sun and moon specifically to be used as signals for when he intersects with human history. "God uses the sun and moon as his day-timer," he noted.
Biltz used NASA records to tie lunar and solar eclipses to significant historical happenings. Numerous celestial events lined up with important Jewish holy days to herald the destruction of Herod's Temple in 70 AD, he said. Biltz suggested that the four consecutive Blood Moons which occurred over a year-and-a-half span during the 20th century proclaimed God's hand in the founding of the modern state of Israel. A Blood Moon announced Israel's recapturing of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War in 1967 as well, he added. Biltz also spoke about what he thinks is the only recorded event in history of an extraterrestrial (God) speaking simultaneously to over three million people, when the Israelites and Moses arrived at Mount Sinai.
Disintegrating Asteroid Captured By Hubble
In the first hour, professor Jim Bell commented on an image of a disintegrating asteroid captured by Hubble Telescope. Asteroids normally appear as single points of light when viewed through a telescope but in this instance astronomers observed multiple objects following the same orbit, Bell explained. Hubble revealed a dozen separate pieces of the once whole asteroid located between Mars and Jupiter, each with a dust tail like a comet, and slowly moving apart from one another, he added. "It tells us the solar system is a dynamic place," Bell said. He also noted that NASA is working to identify asteroids that could be potentially hazardous to the planet.
