The Bible is the only book that has accurately predicted prophecy after prophecy. Instead of focusing too much on the details of interpretations, we should celebrate the fact that our God is so wise that He can orchestrate all things from beginning to end. And with that being the case, He is certainly capable of handling any of the finer points of our lives and the world we live in as well. Before you turn the page to the next chapter, consider this important question: If the interpretation has been pinpoint accurate thus far, then why wouldn’t it continue to be so in the days to come?
As a communicator of astronomy, the term “blood moon” is a major thorn in my side, since it suggests something other than a lunar eclipse and conjures images of a moon shimmering in crimson red colours, which is not at all accurate. But as a cultural astronomer, the phrase displays some of the interesting ways in which modern society creates its sky stories.
Chapters 3 and 4 set forth the standard premillennial interpretation of the Book of Daniel’s prophecy of the four kingdoms of the world that precede the Messiah’s establishment of His earthly kingdom with its capital in Jerusalem. The statue in Daniel with the head of gold, arms of silver, thighs of bronze, legs of iron, and feet of iron and clay refers respectively to the kingdoms of Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, and the final kingdom that is destroyed by the coming of the earthly kingdom of Messiah (33-37). Hagee then correctly identifies the dream of four beasts as a parallel to the dream of the statue (38-41). He avoids specific identification of the kingdoms of Europe (37), which some prophecy teachers have not avoided, usually to their embarrassment.
Many of Christianity’s theological pillars of the faith are man made. They were probably well intended, but they came from people who were up in their heads. I’ve learned that it’s about the heart. He can figure out DNA, he doesn’t need my head. He wants my heart. Why He wants it is beyond me, but He has it. The cleaning and healing and opening it up to others is a lot harder process than reading and playing games of the intellect.
We also should be aware, however, that some of the sensational claims made by authors with regard to blood moon tetrads may be false or misleading. Each claim or statement should be carefully verified to be sure they are accurate. For instance, the author Rivkah Lambert Adler writing for breakingisraelnews.com said with reference to these blood moons:
The major sects of organized Christianity cannot help you understand prophecy. Most of today’s so-called Christian leaders reject Bible history and prophecy as an exercise in futility. Few even believe in the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age. That is the main reason you will not hear sermons on prophecy in the great cathedrals and churches of the Western world.
As we say goodbye to Tim LaHaye, we must be honest in admitting that we don't know for sure whether his Left Behind series bears any relation to what the future holds. I personally think that good biblical scholarship shows he was wrong. But until his ideas are either ultimately confirmed or denounced, let us ‘look forward to the day of God and speed its coming’ (2 Peter 3:12).
But is Bundy really the evil, cold-hearted racist he is made out to be? Notice what Bundy also said that was not reported by the Times: “[A]nd so what I’ve testified to you—I was in the Watts riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen that last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people are thinking they don’t have their freedoms, they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.
1- Why does it seem that practically all of the people who have warned of the New World Order have remained in that system–even after warning of it? Oh, there have been a few who have maintained that they have “broken free” and turned traitor. And, undoubtedly, the enemy sacrifices, from time to time, one of his own in order to increase their “street cred.”
Knowing that God is in control should make you rest easy when there are tough questions that our nation and our world are faced with every day. What will become of the United States? How will our new President respond to foreign aggression that seems to be mounting? How will our allies and foes respond? Will Iran attack Israel? Will Israel be ready for these attacks from their neighbors?
