The Drool-o-tron™ alerted us with its blaring sirens and flashing lights, which compelled us to look at the blinking letters of its wall display. They said WorldNetDaily (WND). The faithful device had locked our computer onto this article: Mercury move tied to Bible ‘destruction’ prophecy.
Oh no — a biblical destruction prophecy! You’re eager to learn what it says, but first, a bit of background is necessary. Most of you are aware that the planet Mercury moved across the face of the Sun yesterday. Well, it always does when viewed from the plane of the solar system beyond that planet’s orbit, but yesterday it was visible from our terrestrial point of view. This is the latest of a series of articles about it which have been appearing at PhysOrg: NASA image: Mercury solar transit.
The transit was entirely natural and accurately predicted, so we didn’t see any reason to write about it. However, the WND article has opened our eyes to the true meaning of this event. It was posted a day before the transit occurred. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us.
May 9, 2016, heralds a relatively rare astronomical phenomenon: Mercury will transit across the face of the sun. The innermost planet will take about seven hours to make the trek, and during that time it will cast a tiny shadow on Earth. It will be visible from most places with the exception of Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and islands in the West Pacific. The transit will begin at 7:12 a.m. EDT and end at 2:42 p.m.
Okay, no big deal — so far. But hold on, dear reader, you won’t believe what’s coming:
But this particular transit is more than just a natural phenomenon which happens between eight and 13 times a century. The YouTube channel The Prophetico says the way in which the planets will line up in conjunction with star constellations may mean the end is near.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh — the end is near! [*End Drool Mode*] Let’s read on:
Specifically, May 6 was the start of a new moon cycle, and it will be a “super moon” where the moon reaches its closest point in its orbit to Earth. Three days later, on May 9, when the Mercury transit occurs, the moon will be in a crescent state to viewers on Earth.
Gasp — this can’t be just a coincidence! WND continues:
The Express notes, “The number three is significant here as according to BibleStudy.org it is related to sex sins in the Bible.”
Egad — sex sins! Here’s more:
Additionally, from a vantage point in Jerusalem, the crescent moon will line up with the Orion star constellation, turning Orion’s club in to a “mace.” The Prophetico goes on to say: “The moon itself has been turned into a sickle, so literally turning Orion’s club into a mace as he strikes the lion’s whelp along the cheek, during the transit [of Mercury]”.
A mace! A sickle! Aaaargh!! Moving along:
The positions of the sun and the planets – Venus, Mercury, Earth, Mars, and Saturn – create another crescent. Jupiter is the only planet not falling into the pattern. According to the narrator, “this is extremely prophetic looking” since from Earth’s perspective, Jupiter sits in the constellation Leo – which in Biblical terms is the Lion of Judah. The Prophetico warns that this could be a sign that this could be interpreted as the end times for humanity.
Your Curmudgeon has never been so frightened. There’s a bit more to the WND article, but we are too badly shaken to go on. There’s nothing to be done except hug the dogs and wait for The End. Therefore, we bid you farewell, and as we always do with these doomsday posts, we close with this:
