The difference between astrology and astronomy is that astrology is a false science. Astrology leads to the worship of the stars. Astronomy is the study of the stars by which sailors have been crossing the ocean for centuries. It is a specific science that has great value to the planet. The bible says, God speaking, that he calls the stars by name. So there’s a difference between worshiping the stars and worshiping the god who created the stars. An entirely different thing.
So The Lord in His mercy provides an indicator of when this great era of Jewish revival will come to pass. “The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.” (Joel 2:31). This will be the indication that the Day of The Lord has started. Lord willing it should be clear that this sign in the heavens is not just a general indication that “something is going to happen.” Notice verse 30 says there will be signs in Heaven and Earth with “blood, fire and pillars of smoke.” Biltz and Hagee make no mention of these signs.
Pompeo obviously shares the widespread Christian affinity with Jews and the conviction that they have a right to gather in safety in the Holy Land (whatever the pros and cons of Israeli policy at the moment). He recently told the Christian Broadcasting Network that “I am confident that the Lord is at work” in Israel. But it’s unclear how much Pompeo strays from traditional Presbyterianism in favor of “Dispensationalism,” with its detailed and highly literal teaching about Bible prophecies and the End Times, including the rapture.
Militia members from the Oath Keepers (the organization made up of military and law-enforcement members who pledge allegiance to the Constitution but not to the government), the iii Percent Patriots (which gets its name from the claim that 3 percent of Americans fought in the American Revolution), the Arizona State Militia and several others were present.
Both run their organizations as family businesses: Matthew Hagee is the heir-apparent to his father’s empire; the president’s sons and daughter already run the Trump organization. The two men also boldly use their positions of power to enhance their family’s business ventures, while at least nominally working toward a greater good. The president’s ventures and conflicts of interests are well-documented, while the true reach of Hagee’s array of nonprofits and personal companies to sell books and memorabilia will remain unknown due to the U.S. tax code.
According to Religion News Service, Hagee's book, "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change," "says something will happen to the nation of Israel due to the tetrad [four blood moons within 18 months]. The four eclipses occur on April 15 and Oct. 8, 2014, and April 4 and Sept. 28 next year. The ones in April occur during Passover, and the ones in October occur during the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles."
One prophetic commentator trumpets his belief the tetrad occurs during the Holy Days and rhetorically asks what it all means. His answer is to warn people to wake up and heed what he labels the "ominous" signs from heaven. A World Net Daily article on whether Jesus will return in 2015 quotes Pastor Mark Blitz as suggesting the string of lunar and solar eclipses to fall on God’s annual Feast days, and the appearance of a blood moon, could herald the second coming of Jesus.
When the sun's rays are blocked from striking the moon, as during an eclipse, the lunar surface reflects whatever colors the earth's shadow (creating by the planet's atmosphere) contains as it goes across the desolate landscape. If our atmosphere contains particles of ash and dust from a volcano, the shadow cast will likely look vivid red like blood. If the atmosphere contains many clouds, however, the surface will look darker.
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.
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.”
The red horse brings death (in which ¼ of the earth will be slaughtered) and global, nuclear war. This nuclear deal with Iran gives you a pretty good picture of what Revelation is talking about. Einstein predicted that in a full-scale nuclear exchange, 1/3 of the earth’s population would die. That is roughly 110 million people in America today. Think that’s an exaggeration? Keep reading.
Hagee then identifies the three audiences that he has in mind for his book (x-xi), namely, Jews, Christians, and those who miss the Rapture. He desires that Jews recognize Jesus as the Messiah. He wants Christians to trust the Word of God more and be strengthened in light of Christ’s imminent coming. The third group to whom he writes are those who are left on the earth to endure the Tribulation after Christ has returned to take away His church. This choice of audience may seem puzzling to those who do not share Hagee’s pretribulationist views, so it may be helpful to explain this position.
Both Devil’s Island and its sequel, Avenger of Blood, are unique fiction accounts of Bible history. Caesar demanded that every Christian in the Empire publicly choose between Christ or Caesar! Exalt the Emperor as God and continue to prosper. Or claim Jesus as Lord and suffer exile as a slave on the Island of Patmos or, worse yet, a martyr’s death in the Roman Coliseum. In Devil’s Island, the apostle John is exiled to Patmos where he is given the great Revelation which he recorded as the book of Revelation.
