“..for “signs” of good and bad weather; for the times of ploughing, sowing, reaping, &c. and for the “seasons” of summer and winter, spring and autumn; for “days” by a circular motion for the space of twenty four hours; and for “years” by annual motion for the space of three hundred sixty five days and odd hours. The Targum of Jonathan is, and let them be for signs and the times of the feasts, and to reckon with them the number of days, and, sanctify the beginnings of the months, and the beginnings of the years, and the intercalations of months and years, the revolutions of the sun, and the new moons, and cycles.” (source).

The Bible contains prophecies that run through the last day of the Earth and into the New Earth that will be created by The Lord. For a believer to gain understanding of interpreting and rightly dividing Bible prophecy, it should come through study of the Scriptures, not the stars. In Deuteronomy 18, God specially referred to those who are “observer of times” – a term for trying to determine the future by looking at constellations or other heavenly bodies, an abomination. Hagee defends his looking to the stars to tell the future by citing Genesis 1:14 – “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” Does this verse mean that Christians are supposed to look to the starts to gain knowledge about the future and to interpret a message from God?
Pastor John Hagee The Four Horses Of The Apocalypse DVD. Neither heaven or hell has been presented to the American people through their churches and pastors in the last 35 years. Now the reality of hell is upon us. Use the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour. These 4 Horses and their riders will soon ride across the stage of human history. John Hagee does a wonderful job of exposing the current events we are feeling today, with the Four Horseman of the apocalypse. From Obama, Israel, Nuclear iran, to China and Russia. It is written in the Bible and is now becoming reality. For those of you who are aware, this will help you see the big picture for what it really is, and how everything fits together. For those of you who have never been introduced to Gods word, this will help you understand how accurate the prophecy, that was written 2000 years ago, really is. Shocking for some and reasurring to others, John Hagee lays it all out for you to see in a remarkable 4 video series. Hagee’s support for Israel has brought him death threats.He has also incurred controversy for his comments based on religious beliefs regarding Islam, Catholicism, and homosexuality. America is turning her back on Israel, the Bible warns of this day. I gave you seven the exact similarities between the coming enterprises in the Bible and the Islamic Messiah.
Thanks for your thoughtful reply. It unfortunately reflects one of the many deceases of Christianity which is the I am teacher, theologically educated and therefore superior model that has made this religion useless the the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Father or our Savior. It has a root of pride: Although I cannot hear you, I’m smarter than you, I’m right your wrong, go do some more homework till you agree with me. Balderdash!!! When G-d sent His Son, he taught 12 Jews who would teach others to teach who would teach others to teach who would teach others to teach…. Christian teachers teach, for a fee, (sometimes just and emotional reward), have thrown out the Sabbath commandment and replaced it with a tithing commandment which was meant for Levites. His Son worked as a carpenter therefore He did not tithe, but boy did He know how to give.
According to Morgenstern, the errors are: (1) an allegation that Hagee asserted he was the "discoverer" of the four blood moons phenomenon; (2) an allegation that Hagee does not credit Biltz for his relevant efforts; (3) an implication that Hagee took the term "God's billboard" from Biltz; (4) an allegation that Hagee used inaccurate dates in his discussions of previous tetrads (5) an implication that Biltz is not prominently featured in Hagee's Four Blood Moons film; and (6) an allegation that Hagee supports so-called dual-covenant theology.

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).


It’s not surprising that the establishment of modern-day Israel in 1948 and its capture of Jerusalem in 1967 energized this movement. The theology was popularized in the huge-selling Dispensationalist book “The Late Great Planet Earth” (1970) and “Left Behind” novels (1995-2007), with related movies. Important pro-Israel preachers include San Antonio’s John Hagee, whose Christians United for Israel reports a membership of 5 million. Numerous books have used the Dispensationalist scenario to falsely link current world events with the End Times.
First of all, the groups you mentioned, all follow false doctrine. The Jehova’s witnesses, the Mormons the new age group that you said could “teach me”, all follow distorted or twisted doctrine that contradicts the word of God. The book of Mormon, and the new world translation of the Holy scriptures (Jehovas witnesses) are both contradicting to the Bible. Even Judaism teaches that Jesus Christ is not the Messiah, which is the only way to heaven (John 14:6, John 11:25-26, Acts 4:10-12, just to name a few. seek more for yourself). I do not think it is best to associate or get taught by people who follow false doctrines that contradict what God already said. The Bible tells us this will happen, and that they are doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:3). We are to preach only from the word of God and follow only Him (Deuteronomy 13:4, Galatians 1:6-12, 2 Corinthians 11:4). So yes to answer your question, any person who teaches against the Bible is a false teacher and should be accursed (Galatians 1:8). If you do not believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, THEN YOU HAVE NO SALVATION. I know you said you didn’t like the fact that I referenced scripture earlier, but it is the only governing authority that abides over us all. So I urge you to please, look up these scriptures and try to really study God’s word. It will help you find truth brother. God’s word is truth (John 17:17). God bless. Please read this last scripture Louis, it goes perfectly with what were talking about!
In 1977, Christian Zionist groups published ads in major U.S. newspapers in opposition to land concessions before Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s visit to Jerusalem. But their efforts soon began to take a more politically organized shape. As political scientists John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt explained in The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, Israeli military victories and deeper inter-religious ties encouraged Christian evangelicals “to begin working to ensure that the United States was on the ‘right side’ as the Bible’s blueprint for the end-times unfolded.”
I remember how Tim LaHaye's 1972 book The Beginning of the End predicted that people who had been alive since 1914 would experience the Rapture. The book didn’t do that well and it was quietly forgotten. The 1914 prediction never reappeared in his writing or speaking. But when looking at LaHaye’s Rapture theology it's worth considering not just his writings, but two of the key Bible passages he used to support Dispensationalism. 
Once the country became a religious free-for-all, celebrated for any and all pagan beliefs, it’s descent into overt paganism has been dizzying.  Some take comfort by believing this may present a “wake-up call” but they are only fooling themselves.  If the apostate church was capable of being woken, it would have occurred years ago–when these beliefs and practices first entered the church.  Not now, after years of comfortable acceptance.

Hagee is a compelling writer (far more than Biltz's Blood Moons book), and at times his enthusiasm is contagious. But despite his insistence that this work is based on Scripture, he has two glaring errors: (1) the Scriptures he notes have additional signs as well (such as the stars going dark) for which he does not account, and (2) nowhere does Scripture say that four consecutive lunar eclipses is significant--this is an occurrence he has decided must have importance due to its rarity. Furthermore, the Joel 2 and Revelation 6 prophecies seem to be speaking of a singular event, not a recurring event.


This passage details a very specific sequence of events culminating with the defense of Israel by God and their return to believing faith. This is emphasized as the final verse of the chapter stresses that whosoever calls on God’s name will be “delivered.” It is a time of salvation for the believing remnant of Israel. So why do we not see John Hagee or Mark Biltz mentioning the rest of the prophecies in Joel chapter 2? Why are they not talking about the mighty army that is going to ravage homes and destroy people in a manner never seen before? Why have they not mentioned these aspects and instead picking just one verse out of context? It is because they are not following Scripture but instead looking to the stars, NASA and Google for their prophetic interpretation.

For instance, in our 21st century (2001-2100), there are a total 8 tetrads, but in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, there were none at all. If we include all the centuries from the 1st century (A.D. 1-100) through the 21st century (2001-2100), inclusive, there are a total of 62 tetrads. The last one happened in 2014-2015, and the next one will happen in 2032-2033.

The move of the United States embassy to Jerusalem, and U.S. recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over Syria’s Golan Heights, were thought to boost both President Donald Trump’s evangelical support and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s April 9 election prospects. Analyzing those decisions, the Times explained that “white evangelicals,” Pompeo included, believe “God promised the land to the Jews, and that the gathering of Jews in Israel is foretold in the prophecy of the rapture — the ascent of Christians into the kingdom of God.”
“God’s not in heaven saying ‘let’s make a deal.’ God’s in heaven saying ‘this is the deal.’ And the deal is: Israel owns that land! They do not occupy that land! They own that land! I gave it to them!” Hagee boomed in a sermon titled “Israel: God’s Prophetic Clock” in 2017. Ceding land, according to Hagee, will only lead to the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people. The “land for peace” formula is not just theologically impermissible according to Joel 3:2, but also empirically unsuccessful. Hagee has pointed to the Oslo accords and Yitzhak Rabin as an example.
The thing is that the blood moon/eclipse occurrences is not the only sign we are getting. You have Johnathan Cahn’s teachings on the shmita and the Isaiah harbinger prophecies. The world around us is falling apart. I had a Rapture dream in August, and the church I go to does not believe in the Rapture. I was a registered nurse, I was assaulted and became an addict. I lost everything and ended up using IV drugs. A couple years ago, I started going to church. I was still using and after about 6 months, I got up one morning prayed and proceeded to do a pain pill. I got the needle to my arm and I heard “You do not need that I have saved you”. That is when the spiritual attacks started. My husband passed last March, GOD gave me a warning dream, so I knew I would not be alone and gave it all to him. A month after he passed, I was lead to a man on y/t codesearcher dot net. He is a spirit filled Christian, he does Bible code. He does not use it for divination like most, he references the hidden messages with the plain text. He uses it for confirmation of the prophecies found in the Bible related to these last days. There is a table on the blood moons and the feast days (which are prophetic in nature and the Spring Feasts being fulfilled with Jesus crucifixion and resurrection). Here is a link to his tables, like I said he is on y/t as well. GOD bless
Darrel Issa threatens White House with subpoena – Because that’s what Darrel Issa does: mugs for the cameras and threatens to subpoena people.  If this writer had a dollar for every time Issa has threatened to subpoena someone in the Obama administration, he’d be rich.  If this writer had a dollar for every time Issa actually accomplished something, he’d be broke.

This time, in my opinion, you hit the nail on the head. Paul accomplished nothing in Athens and never will. It’s Jerusalem. Prayer is Jerusalem. I sometimes think, and it’s just me, that what happened on the road to Damascus happened because someone prayed for Paul, maybe even someone he prosecuted. He was a smart guy already, but smart just doesn’t cut it. Good comment.


But not everyone agreed that the blm army should be the law. People wondered: Why did the blm send an army to confiscate some cows? Why did the rangers need attack dogs? More importantly, why do unelected, government-appointed bureaucrats have their own private militarized police force that supposedly supersedes the authority of local police? Why didn’t the blm solve this problem through regular law-enforcement channels?
“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)?  One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article.  When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master.”  “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events.  Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do.
“If God is not in what you’re doing, stop it! If God is not in what you’re saying, shut your mouth! If God’s not going where you’re going, don’t go there!” the Pastor exclaimed with the authoritative cadence and tone that he has honed over decades. Cornerstone’s flock of around 5,000 that day cried “Amen!” in every form of south Texas drawl one can hear near San Antonio.
That does not mean you won’t experience any trials, or that you don’t need to take reasonable precautions to protect yourself. Neither does God promise us a problem-free life in this world. As Paul wrote to Timothy, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (verse 12). But He does promise to fight our battles for us—to deliver us from every trouble and affliction. And as long as you continue to obey God, you will overcome those trials—and emerge stronger for them.
After Hagee's 2008 endorsement of U.S. Presidential candidate John McCain, a furor arose over comments, broadcasts, and writings made by Hagee that were seen as anti-Catholic. After discussions with Catholic leaders, Hagee made an apology, which was publicly accepted by Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights president William A. Donohue.[26]
During ancient times in Israel, the advent of a blood moon was often considered a sign or an omen from God of coming events. This was true in many cultures throughout history, and astrologers often attempted to predict them, although with a large amount of error. However, any series of blood moons could not have been predicted, especially before the advent of modern orbital mechanics and computers, which can now anticipate the occurrence of blood moons even if they happen in various locations around the world. In fact, a series of blood moons such as a tetrad involves lunar eclipses that can only be seen at discrete locations on the Earth, and each blood moon of the tetrad never occurs at the same location twice. Therefore, only in relatively recent times could we have knowledge of blood moon tetrads and predict them regardless of where they might occur.
Science-oriented Internet sites were inundated with questions about prophecy related to blood moons. “We’re not experts on prophecy of any kind,” wrote EarthSky in April. “But we’ll tell you what we know about the new definition for blood moon that has raised so many questions recently” (April 24). It explained that John Hagee and Mark Biltz apply the term blood moons to the 2014-2015 tetrad, and credited Hagee for popularizing the term in Four Blood Moons. “This book, published in 2013, is apparently what launched all the questions to our astronomy website about blood moons,” EarthSky wrote. “We confess. We haven’t read it.”
Then I read stuff by people who sit in judgment because others don’t have a church. They use stuff like the old rag, ”If you find a perfect church, don’t join it, because you will ruin it”. First off, I do not expect, nor look for perfection, but being free of false teachers should not be too much to ask! Why am I the trouble maker when I want to hear Bible and not feel good platitudes? Why am I ruining things when I want to sing hymns filled with wonderful doctrine, instead of mindless praise songs that belong at church camp campfires at best? Some of these praise songs have refrains that are sung over and over and over until I just can’t stand it anymore and stop singing. Have any of you ever noticed that many of the modern praise songs take the focus off from what the Lord has done for us and puts it onto what WE are doing to praise Him and how long WE will praise him.
Matthew 24:36-41 is often quoted and referred to in the Left Behind films and books as a proof text for the Rapture. The passage says ‘one shall be taken and the other left’ - and Lahaye believed this refers to the Church being snatched away into heaven. However, since Jesus links this event with the days of Noah, those taken away are actually those ‘taken away in judgment’ not those taken away to be rescued. During Noah’s flood it is said ‘they were taken away to be judged’. Those who are left are the righteous.
The New King James Version is clear and relatively straight-forward, if not quite as literal a translation as the NASB. As far as NKJV Study Bibles go, thus far this is the only one that is as equally outstanding as the now out-of-print "Believer's Study Bible" which is also a real gem - in my opinion the Prophecy Study Bible & the Believer's Study Bible are both "must-buys". Well worth looking for copies of each of them.

4. Weeks or Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16) – Occurred fifty days after the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and pointed to the great harvest of souls and the gift of the Holy Spirit for both Jew and Gentile, who would be brought into the kingdom of God during the Church Age (see Acts 2). The Church was actually established on this day when God poured out His Holy Spirit and 3,000 Jews responded to Peter’s great sermon and his first proclamation of the gospel.
After the television empire that was already reaching around 65 million people was folded into Grace Church of San Antonio—an entity that did not need to report on its financial condition in as much detail as its predecessor—asset growth ballooned. According to tax records of GETV and Grace Church of San Antonio, the surviving entity’s assets more than doubled between 2004 and 2008: $18.4 million to $37.9 million after a period of decline and only slowly increasing donations. Those assets have continued to grow. According to 2018 Bexar County property records, Grace Church of San Antonio and Global Evangelism Inc. have property worth a combined $57.4 million. Hagee himself owns three houses in the San Antonio area.
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.
According to Morgenstern, the errors are: (1) an allegation that Hagee asserted he was the "discoverer" of the four blood moons phenomenon; (2) an allegation that Hagee does not credit Biltz for his relevant efforts; (3) an implication that Hagee took the term "God's billboard" from Biltz; (4) an allegation that Hagee used inaccurate dates in his discussions of previous tetrads (5) an implication that Biltz is not prominently featured in Hagee's Four Blood Moons film; and (6) an allegation that Hagee supports so-called dual-covenant theology.

Bottom line: The term Blood Moon in Biblical prophecy appears to have been popularized by two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee. They used the term to apply to the full moons of the 2014-2015 lunar tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, each separated by six lunar months, with no partial lunar eclipses in between. Nowadays, it seems, the term Blood Moon is being used for any and all total lunar eclipses.
Although I find that your reply is condescending, as if I didn’t know the scriptures you quoted, I do apologize for the tone of my post. I am repulsed by the thousands upon thousands of “Christian” teachers around the world in English, Spanish, and German, the only languages I’m comfortable in, that keep pushing their “superior” or “correct” but really their own understanding of the Scriptures instead of pushing people to push other people to get closer to Him so He can teach them. In Christ we have one head and one Teacher. He can teach me better than you, any pastor, or prophet can.
The blood moon prophecies are a series of prophecies in the Bible preached by Christian preachers John Hagee and Mark Biltz, which state that a tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses—coinciding on Jewish holidays—with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is the beginning of the end times as described in the Bible in the Book of Joel, Acts 2:20, and Revelation 6:12. The tetrad ended with the lunar eclipse on September 27–28, 2015.
Tim LaHaye was recognised as one of the top 25 Christian leaders throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s. His Left Behind series is not his greatest contribution to the Church or his best writing. That honour, in my view, belongs to his 1976 book The Act of Marriage. It's a remarkable book about sex. It was ahead of its time, detailed, frank and even included diagrams! I think it should be read by all engaged and married couples.

We have an obligation to teach our children and our grandchildren about the joy and peace that is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We serve a God who is the Prince of Peace, and He delights in granting us favor. He will give you the best of things in the worst of times. And let me tell you, peace that surpasses all understanding is definitely a great thing to have during these uncertain times.
