A passage from Luke’s gospel that announced hurricanes like Irma, the eclipse and earthquake, creates fear by mentioning signs of the end of the world.
The total solar eclipse of August 21 covered from coast to coast to North America. There are those who call it the harbinger of apocalypse; with its “black moon” and “dark dawn” as clear symptoms of its arrival.
A group of fans of astronomy and biblical numerology predict that the end of the world is about to arrive: next September 23, when the supposed planet Nibiru – or planet X – will collide with the Earth and originate the apocalypse.
Truth or coincidence, circulates information that links Harvey Storm, which struck the east coast of the United States, to the solar eclipse of August 21, with a biblical quote that speaks of the end of the world.
The solar eclipse passed on August 21, Storm Harvey arrived on the 25th of the same month and precipitated the power of water on August 26.
By analogy, through the method of approach contained in the Bible, scholars found that in the Gospel, according to Luke, the following admonition narrated by the Lord Jesus Christ appears in chapter 21, verses 25 and 26:
“Then there will be signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars, and in the earth anguish of the people, confounded by the roaring of the sea and the waves; men faint from fear and expectation of things to come upon the earth; because the powers of the heavens will be shaken. ”
The specific case of the Gospel of Luke in chapter 21 is especially particular if one takes into account that it speaks of floods, of fear.
In the last few days four hurricanes, three simultaneous, have been unleashed and the worst earthquake in the last 100 years have hit the northern part of the American continent, arousing in many believers the fear of the end-of-the-world signs constantly mentioned in the Bible.
The mentioned verse circulated in the last days in the social networks, after the earthquake of 8.2 degrees that shook the south of Mexico, since this phenomenon coincided with the hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia, being this an unpublished and almost apocalyptic situation. All these events occurred, after the great American eclipse of 21 of August and that many attributed to the “beginning of the end of the world”.
A week after the eclipse came “Harvey” and desolated Texas, and now “Irma” threatens Florida.
