Some Hindu folktales interpret lunar eclipses as the result of the demon Rahu drinking the elixir of immortality. Twin deities the sun and moon promptly decapitate Rahu, but having consumed the elixir, Rahu’s head remains immortal. Seeking revenge, Rahu’s head chases the sun and moon to devour them. If he catches them we have an eclipse—Rahu swallows the moon, which reappears out of his severed neck.
If you care to understand what “I” believe, you can go back and read the articles I’ve published since January. When you have a “brown dwarf” heading straight toward earth (albeit on an elliptical path) and imminent warnings of a possible “pole shift”, you have a tendency to “rethink” things a little. Particularly when these events were prophesied in the 2nd Book of Esdras, Chapter 15, with verse 40 mentioning the “Horrible Star” and the events in Egypt reading like a “newspaper” in prior verses.
I think Hagee shares too much of his own opinion and interprets the Bible his own way. His timing of the recent Shemitahs doesn't rightly (or 100%) line up with all of the events in American. He is also a solid believer in the Pre-tribulational Rapture...which I am not. This discounts for me some of the stuff he writes. Toward the end of the book, I was tending toward just taking with a grain of salt everything he said. Integrity is important to keep the reader hanging on. He has too many anomalies in this thinking. Just doesn't add up.
There appears to be no end to the numerous countdowns and endtime signs offered by modern day prophecy preachers. Every generation since the first have had their share of these grossly mistaken prophets. Hagee must join their ranks. Please understand, this is not a personal attack on the man. I do not know him and can only address what he writes and says about Bible prophecy. He is certainly very prominent and influential, and runs one of the most well organized Christian lobbies in the country.
“The correlation between (the blood moons) and the Hebrew holidays are very interesting,” Cahn said. “The occurrence of the blood moons on these Jewish holidays occurred only a few times in the past 2,000 years. Some of these, in the early Middle Ages, are hard to connect to significant dates. But the last three, the Spanish expulsion, the birth of Israel and the regaining of Jerusalem, are all very significant dates in Jewish history and, in the case of two of these, in end-time prophecy.”
Getting right with YHWH is an every day and more than once a day occurrence for me. It is a process. We are right with Him because of Him. He walked through the covenant with Abraham alone, He was there on that tree in Jerusalem alone with His Son and only He can truly change us. His Word, for me can be condensed to two verbs: Trust & Obey. Religious teachers often get people to obey through fear, but that doesn’t work for very long. I believe the root cause of sin is the heart. I live in Florida and in a house when you see an infestation of carpenter ants (sin) you often have a problem with rotten wood (rotten heart) because these ants feed on termites. If you get rid of the ants, your real problem does not go away, it only gets worse. haSatan found his way into Eve’s rotten wood and she gave him the way to her husband’s. Behavior modification doesn’t cut it, we need transformation. YHWH paid an outrageous price so He could do it but it is an often messy and painful process. The question is are we willing to let Him do it. I must invite Him and keep inviting Him every day. I wish I could say that it’s the lyrics of an old church hymn comes to mind but I find that sinners are often more honest. It’s an old Duran-Duran song that I think of: “Who do you need? Who do you love? When you come undone?” And we will come undone if these blood moons signal the beginning of the Times of Jacob’s Trouble, which are more than seven years, by the way. The scariest verse of the entirety of scripture, for me, is Matthew 7:23. It doesn’t matter if we think or believe that we know Him. What matters is that He knows us. He, not us.
“There are three categories of people, the hopelessly unaware, Coincidence Theorists and Conspiracy Theorists. Don’t bother with the hopelessly unaware, they are too involved in watching Duck Dynasty, South Beach Towing and Jerry Springer. The Coincidence Theorists explain away every misdeed on the part of the government as bad luck, a coincidence or simply an accident. And of course, Conspiracy Theorists see the potential for criminal gain through collective action. Conspiracy theorists look for the intent of the people behind an event.”
Joseph was not recognized by his brothers because he looked Egyptian and spoke another language. Yet he was the one that brought salvation to Israel. I believe Christianity has hijacked Yeshua and has been presenting an Egyptian which is why Yeshua is not recognized. Just as Jewish children were taken, converted to Christianity and not given back to their parents after the holocaust the same has happened to Yeshua. I believe he desires to go home.” (source).
I Don’t look at John Hagee report so much as I look at the backing up of what the Bible says about the end times. I also find it very interesting on how so many teachers of the word are all on the same mind set all at the same time. I believe God has put this together as it is almost impossible to have so many in aggrement at the same time!! Have you ever tried to get lets say 10 people together in aggrement on one thing, it is far and few between. John Hagee gives us the word and even quotes the Bible passages for us to back up what he is saying. I believe what is happening, and why so many question him is because this has been predicted so many times before and even with dates involved ( we all know GOD has forbidden this ) that its the same story about the sky is falling theory. It is predicted so many times that people don’t believe it anymore. But we as Christians all know it is going to happen sometime because the Bible says so, and in saying so God did leaves us some signs of the times, which John Hagee is trying to get accross for us. Does it hurt to listen,or be ready for that time. Clearly not!!! So I say to you have some Faith because we do know its coming.
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."
Do you really think that telling people satan was the first teacher of God’s word is bringing the Kingdom of God here? This reminds me of a saying I heard long ago that says, “you have to understand the word of God to teach it, but you have to study the word of God to preach it”. In my opinion, none of us are worthy to preach the word of God, we all fall short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). But through Jesus Christ we can be with the Father (Ephesians 2:18). That is what brings the Kingdom of God to this place, the belief in Christ Jesus. And teaching God’s word for what it is, not rearranging it to fit your theories. In no way was I offended by your remarks, but I am scared by them, because I feel satan is turning you from the truth of God’s word. I pray you will continue to search the scriptures and find truth. God bless
So you don’t believe haSatan is out there teaching G-d’s Word? Ask any Jehova’s Witness, Mormon, ohyper-Charismatic, Jesuit, New Age guru, any of the splinters of Messianic Judaism or even Judaism, they’ll all teach you. You don’t think it is a good idea to warn seekers with a broken heart to beware of human teachers accusing everyone else who does not share their Theological understanding of His Word a false teacher?
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.
In, The Revelation of Truth, Dr. Hagee unveils the pictures that God has painted–not on paper or canvas–but in the Bible and the annals of human history. “In the beginning, God knew that Satan and sin would color His creation black, and that only blood red could restore mankind. Still, He dipped His finger in the blue of an ocean and painted a sky, then nudged His thumb into clay from which He formed a man. Knowing everything that would be required of man and Himself, God continued to create”out of love for His creation” (Revelation of Truth).
