The Fukushima nuclear plant affected by the Sendai earthquake has apparently collapsed – will this then have any effect on the moon/sun darkening? maybe the Joel 3 connection has something to it now.It’s about 250km off Tokyo, a “striking range” of any fallout. Already the radioactivity level is 20x the norm. People in the area have been asked to turn off air conditioning and not to drink tap water. That area is staring at a nuclear meltdown.
The images of the quake and tsunami in Japan have been transfixing. Last night I returned from a church meeting to catch up with news on TV and the pictures were just shocking. True to form, there is already a seminar lined up to talk about the prophecies in places like Joel 3 and the end days. As surely as day follows night, end time seminars almost always follow a series of earthquakes. The close occurrences between the Christchurch and Sendai earthquakes almost guarantee a talk of end times to follow. Yet, no one ever address the issues of the sun and moon darkening or the stars stop twinkling (Joel 3:15). We really ought to just accept that no one will know whether the last days are upon us. All we need to do – and that is already a big task – is to be faithful to God and seek Him and obey Him. Better spend time reading and studying His word than chasing signs of the end days.
