The 4 Blood Moons Phenomena?
By now I am sure that many of you have heard of “The Blood Moon Prophecy’s” that has been made popular by Mark Biltz and more prominently Pastor John Hagee.
We are currently in the middle of a four blood moons cycle in which each blood moon will appear on religiously significant dates for the Jewish people.
The first came April 15, 2014, the second day of Passover. The second came on October 8, 2014, during the Jewish Feast of the Tabernacles. The third will come on April 5, 2015, during next year’s Passover celebration, and the fourth will arrive on September 28, 2015, another Feast of the Tabernacles, also known as Sukkot. (see above)
Hagee says that the blood moons are “God’s signs to this terminal generation that something big is going to happen soon.” He connects these four blood moons with Israel. Saying that every time these four blood moons appear it is a sign of something big happening for Israel.
-Hagee asserts that The 4 Blood Moons are WARNINGS from God…
I’m not going to take the time to validate or debunk all of what is right or wrong in their theories here. Instead I am simply going to give the dates that are mentioned by Hagee and Biltz along with the significant events that they connect in “direct correlation” of The Four Blood Moons.
Hagee says that these four blood moons have happened “THREE OTHER TIMES” to mark significant events in Israel’s history.
HERE ARE THOSE THREE EVENTS:
In 1492, was the final year of the Spanish Inquisition, where The Alhambra Decree ordered all remaining Jews who would not convert to Christianity to leave Spain.
The four blood moons actually started the following year! The four blood moons occurred on:
* Passover, April 2, 1493
* Sukkoth, Sept. 25, 1493
* Passover, March 22, 1494
* Sukkoth, Sept. 15, 1494
Hagee says the next four blood moons happened in 1948, which was Israel’s War of Independence and when they received statehood.
Again, these four blood moons actually started the following year. The four blood moons occurred on:
* Passover, April 13, 1949
* Sukkoth, Oct. 7, 1949
* Passover, April 2, 1950
* Sukkoth, Sept. 26, 1950
Hagee says the next four blood moons happened in 1967, which was Israel’s Six-Day War.
These four blood moons occurred on:
* First Day of Passover, April 24, 1967
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 18, 1967
* First Day of Passover. April 13, 1968
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 6, 1968
In Pastor John Hagee’s teachings he dogmatically tells his large audience that The 4 Blood Moons are WARNINGS to each and every one of us to take heed because something BIG is “about to happen” with the nation of Israel.
– Call me Crazy but aren’t WARNINGS supposed to occur BEFORE something Big actually happens? Is God in the business of Warning His people AFTER something occurs?
What I am failing to understand is how so many people have swallowed this “theory” hook, line and sinker, without doing any homework on their own. I think that I am actually more appalled that Pastor Hagee has went on to write a book and even has a 4 Part DVD in which he spreads this “ground breaking news” to millions of people who he arrogantly and accurately assumes that those millions will not adhere to Acts 17:11 that tells us to check out what we are being taught to make sure that it is true.
I pastor a church of less than 100 people and I would not dare bring “speculation” to the pulpit in fear of answering to God. Secondly, I am to be held accountable to the precious souls that God has given us at Victory Baptist Church that make up our congregation. Unlike Mister Hagee, I do not dare to tempt God, nor insult the intelligence of His people…
I love you and God Bless You,
