When I read your reply Tiger something dawned on me. Between all the debate on the Obamacare program forcing you to buy private insurance, and RFID effectively forcing you to accept radio id tracking, and even having to show id and have it logged into a database to cash in cans or buy decongestant medicine, and then consider the soon collapse of the dollar it is no longer far fetched to believe some leader will before long require everyone to have a traceable "mark" (some sort of permanent identifier to tie you into a database) just as a practical matter? Seems like I heard that part of Obamacare requires doctors to make all your records available online to a database.
Like anything the government does sounds a piece at a time like a good idea until you ponder the misuse of that good idea and how it fits into the whole. And then consider how even Google Earth can provide real time tracking of your movements to law enforcement in areas even now "for the public good."
I'm sure the passage (and others) refers to a lunar eclipse.
Then consider this idea. I put "Blood Moon Israel" into a search engine and got this take on such lunar eclipses in Israel.http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=63076
And here lots of people scoffed at the thought that we believed the moon would literally turn to blood. Not at all. It is a description of a lunar eclipse meant to be a sign of the times after certain events had unfolded.
