The moon appears red from being eclipsed by the cloud in space and atmospheric dust.
Of course, we know how hail is formed as warm moisture rises up to the colder layers of the stratosphere until it is large enough that it must fall. *Revelation 16:21 tells of hailstones weighing as much as 75 to 100 lbs. each, falling to the ground! And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. The normal limit to the growth of hail at maximum would be about the size of a large grapefruit due to the constraints of the atmosphere. But these formations will continue to grow to great proportions as they rise even higher – right out into space! This is what has been missed in the thinking of so many for so long. Just as the shadow of the Earth causes the moon to appear red in an eclipse, this cloud will be responsible for very fine debris blocking out light except for the longer waves of the red end of the spectrum for the fulfillment of the prophecy of : *Joel 2:31- The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come and *Revelation 6:12- And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;.
Earth is struck by an asteroid ejecting water vapor and debris material into space.
The cloud in space becomes electrically charged and glows.
Meanwhile, the tsunami created in the ocean will rapidly spread out in all directions and grow to heights never before seen. As sad as the Indonesian or Japanese tsunamis were, it can only serve as a small example of what is to come. Estimates extend to hundreds of feet tall at hundreds of miles per hour. The bible declares that one third of the ships on the Earth will be destroyed by the asteroid. *Revelation 8:9- …and the third part of the ships were destroyed. With tensions elevated in the Middle East, it wouldn’t be hard to imagine substantial assets from the U.S. navy being deployed to the Arabian Sea, as is the case already. When the asteroid strikes, the resulting tsunami could cause the U.S. to cease being a naval power, and therefore cease from being a superpower- in one day! This would further embolden Israel’s enemies and precipitate a rush by various nations to “secure” the middle-eastern oil fields. International communications will have been disrupted, ports would be badly damaged and ongoing quakes would continue sending dangerous tsunami waves making an effective and immediate response from remaining ships impossible. Think of the results this will have on international commerce as well, like actually moving the shipments of oil and other commodities.
