According to Bible prophecy the moon will play a role in the end-times. The prophet Joel (Joel 2:30-31) and Apostle John (Revelation 6:12-13) both refer to a blood moon that will serve as warning sign-posts.
Since Blood moons in themselves are not unusual, it is their appearance along with several other events such as a solar eclipse, stars falling from the sky and earthquakes that will make them unique. According to the Apostle John one particular Blood moon will mark the angelic opening of the sixth sea, that can be best described as a time of terror on the earth.
But apparently the moon hasn’t escaped the attention of the European Space Agency (ESA) and envisions it as a part of a new utopia.
An artist working with ESA’s Advanced Concept Team recently came up with a conceptual drawing of a building on earth’s celestial neighbor that he describes as a “Moon Temple.”
Jorge Manes Rubio envisions it as part of a lunar base that is in the planning stages at the space agency. According to the artist, this new temple will serve as a “place of contemplation” for the future moon settlement.
In ESA’s news release, you almost get the impression this temple will mark the start of a new world order that won’t be marred by such things as our current views on morality, religion and old-fashioned concepts of countries.
In the ESA news release, Rubio said:
“Lunar settlement represents a perfect chance for a fresh start, a place where there are no social conventions, no nations and no religion, somewhere where these concepts will need to be rethought from scratch.”
The proposed new temple will be 50 meters high and be perched on the sunlight edge of the Shackleton Crater found on the Moon’s southern pole.
The ESA considers craters on the poles as ideal spots for a lunar base. The low sun creates perpetual shadows in the craters making them places to store frozen ice that will provide both water and oxygen for the base.
Bible prophets also speak about attempts to set up a new world order in the end-times, but describe it in less flattering terms:
23 “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth, which will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. (Daniel 7:23 NASV)
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. (Revelation 13:16-18 NASV)
