“Is Jesus, the Messiah, or the Mahdi going to return during the blood-red moon of 2015?
Prophecy teachers point out the number of lunar eclipses and the timing, over the past two years. In both 2014 and 2015, a full lunar eclipse occurred, and will occur, on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). Similar lunar eclipses happened seven times since the time of Christ in references to a “moon like blood”, to be found in several Biblical passages: Joel 2:10, Joel 2:30–31, Revelation 6:12 and Matthew 24:29. September 24, 2015 is the divine date for the return of Jesus, the Messiah, or the Mahdi.
In anticipation, fanatic ISIS-Muslim beheaded thousands of infidels in their fantasy caliphate, near the small town of Dabiq, between the Turkish border and Aleppo, Syria, where the Mahdi is supposed to descend on earth. Most religious Jews prefer to believe that Megiddo, also called Armageddon, just north east of Haifa, will be the preferred spot, others quote Jerusalem. Evangelical Christians are somewhat vague about their Messiah’s landing platform location.
What joins the prophecy teachers of all three faiths is that they believe, matters in the future can be foretold, far in advance. Supposedly, time is linear, with past, present and future, and divine prophecies of today, or in the past, have knowledge about future events. Age-old studies and traditions of astrology are deeply interwoven with early scientific observations, mysticism and religions. Not only world events but, according to the star gazers, also the life of each individual is determined by the position of celestial constellations. Specific celestial arrangements are used as the clock of future events.
At a conference in Stockholm, famed physicist Stephen Hawkins explained how information is stored in black holes. He implied that “ our concept of time could fall apart if black holes proved to be exempt from known physical laws.” Hawking focused on the “the information paradox.” Seemingly, information about a star that formed a black hole seems to be lost inside the black hole, but according to the way we think the universe works, this cannot be, and physicists believe that they are not really lost
Hawking explained: "I propose that the information is stored not in the interior of the black hole as one might expect, but in its boundary, the event horizon." On the event horizon, when particles come back out — in a phenomenon called Hawking Radiation — they carry some of that information back out, preserving it. Note: An event horizon is a boundary in space-time beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. In layman's terms, it is defined as "the point of no return".
Comprehensible for layman or not, information about past, present and future events are all in the same place as one event and not separate ones. The two spits, wave-matter experiment underlines this principle even more.
Therewith, Hawking confirms that future events can be stored already in the present, much like religions prophecies.
I do not know what you are planning to do during the Jewish holidays in September, at least if there will be any.
