One Pastor's Conviction

Actions Have Consequences

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,

It is time to DEAL with what is REAL…

 Believe me, I LOVE YOU……

No Weapon

The challenge that many “Christians” have is that is they never REALLY deal with the root of their issues, so it becomes common practice to find scriptures to mask “what’s REALLY going on”.

Sheltering your flaws and giving sin a home in your life all-the-while putting scripture on it to excuse your behavior is dangerous.

Many people habitually ‘stand on’ scriptures but are doing so out of their own selfish motives to justify their pursuit of something that God did not will for their lives.

Putting that piece of broccoli on top of your Little Debbie Cake does not make that cake healthy.

Falsely using Scripture to justify ungodly actions and inaction stemming from false motives is a scary thing to do.
Don’t do it my friend…

John 18:20-21 Jesus says, “I spake openly to the world; and in secret have I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.”

For those that do not know, or REFUSE to know the truth in which I speak, that’s okay because every word is recorded in heaven by God Almighty and on Earth by the Un-Mighty pastor Chad Lovejoy, on an MP3 format file….

You claim what you’d like. I’ll take Psalm 17

Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;

12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

14 From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
