Could this be a sign?
From our vantage point the Sun appeared to be darkened Friday, and look pretty much like the moon when it is full. Looking at the sun Friday morning you did not see the radiance and glory that is often associated with the Sun and often comes with a warning that no one should attempt to look directly at it under normal circumstances without special shades for fear that it will damage your eyes permanently.
This past Friday however, the cosmic appearance of the Sun was as such that you were able to look directly at it with the naked eye and the color you saw was red under extreme hazy condition. The scientific explanation is obviously the Sun shining from the distant East through the Sarah dust in the atmosphere that gave it that appearance.
For those who were up early, they couldn’t help but notice the color of the Sun and it sure did drew their attention that many whipped out their cell phones and began taking pictures of the unusual sight. For some their initial reaction was “That’s Nature”. For others they know what the Scripture teaches. The Bible refer to God in Creation created the greater Light (the Sun) to rule the day and the lesser light (the Moon) to rule the Night. Genesis 1:16. This can be a sign that we are in Perilous times. II Tim.3:1. Which also described the behavior and attitude of mankind, which makes the point that we are living in the last days.
