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.
Thanks for your reply, which does not answer my question but goes off on a tangent and does not address the issue but sends the discussion to an area where there is no discussion. What you said is true but it does not negate the fact that haSatan, uses religious people, to “teach” his version of YHWH’s Word and that true seekers of His Kingdom need to be aware of this. Wether you want to call it haSatan or the spirit of Antichrist, I hate capitalizing that word, is semantics.
"I flew down to Florida and did about an hour of filming describing how I discovered it and told John Hagee all about it. That was left out of the film. It was disappointing again to never hear him say that I was the one who actually discovered it and gave him all my information. I believe he is finally saying he was not the discoverer but it would be nice just to hear him ever unequivocally say that I was the one who discovered it and gave him all my information not just that he knows I exist and was one of many who led him on this journey."
For dispensationalists like Hagee, such efforts must have been especially urgent given the events of 1979: Egypt and Israel signed a peace accord in March, the Iranian revolution began in April, and in November, militants calling for the overthrow of the House of Saud seized the Grand Mosque in Mecca. These were flashing red signs for a movement that believed conflict would inevitably precede the fulfillment of prophecy. Hagee’s effort to keep the United States on the “right side” began in earnest by 1981.

In addition to Hagee’s theological roots, Norman argued against Jewish ties with Hagee because of his political beliefs. “I think they shouldn’t take the money because it’s part of this statist Zionist project that has genocide as collateral damage,” Norman said. Norman is also an organizer with Jewish Voice for Peace who has attempted to facilitate discussions about the Israel-Palestine conflict, but has often been rebuffed by local leaders.
As a former JW of 15 years, you are spot on Collin. The people inside are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. However, they are being deceived by the ‘Governing Body’ which cherry pick scriptures to fit their twisted teachings. Jesus was only a man and not god. Therefore they are considered an anti-Christ (notice little a) or one against Jesus.
Hagee would have his readers and followers believe that the blood moon, which is a lunar eclipse, is what is being described in Joel 2:31. In fact it is not. As explained above a blood moon is a total lunar eclipse – a moment when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon, putting the moon in a complete shadow. The moon during a lunar eclipse appears red in color because of the way light bends around the earth’s atmosphere, scattering short wavelength light (green through violet) and leaving longer wavelength light (red, orange and yellow). It’s why sunsets and sunrises generally are red. During the 20th century, there were 229 lunar eclipses and 85 of those were complete lunar eclipses which lead to the “blood moon.”
They carry a significant message for those who have an ear to hear. Jesus foretold that powerful prophecies would smite a clueless and unprepared world. There is a timeline and an exact order of prophetic events before “the Battle of Armageddon” and Christ’s Return. But understand. When these final events arrive, it will already be too late for you to heed Yahshua Messiah’s words.
John Hagee is the author of four New York Times bestsellers, as well as Jerusalem Countdown, which itself has sold over 1 million copies. He is the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a nondenominational evangelical church with more than 20,000 active members, as well as the founder and president of John Hagee Ministries, which telecasts his radio and television teachings throughout America and in more than 100 nations worldwide. Hagee is also the founder and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, a grassroots national association with over 1 million members to date.

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.
In my tour through Christian denominations, and I will only mention two of them as an example, I went through Unitarian and Trinitarian Charismatics and both flavors called the other one heretic. I will not go down the rabbit trail of the trinity because that is a whole other can of worms, but this is just one example of how Christians vilify each other when they don’t agree with their understanding of Scripture. You have done that with the blood moons, in my understanding. They don’t fit your theology so they must be heresy. Is that the only possibility?

Following the Bureau of Land Management’s decision to release his cows, 67-year-old Cliven Bundy expounded on why he thinks big government welfare policies are destroying America. The New York Times reported Bundy’s comments: “‘I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,’ he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, ‘and in front of that government house, the door was usually open and the older people and the kids—and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch—they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do’” (April 23).
Indeed, the term “blood moon” was popularised in 2013 following the release of the book Four Blood Moons by Christian minister John Hagee. He promotes an apocalyptic belief known as the “blood moon prophecy” highlighting a lunar sequence of four total eclipses that occurred in 2014/15. Hagee notes that all four fell on Jewish holidays, which has only happened three times before—each apparently marked by bad events.
The core beliefs of these evangelical preachers and their tens of millions of followers in the U.S. deserve a much closer look now that they’re riding shotgun alongside President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman, who is America’s ambassador to Israel and a supporter of Israel’s settlements.
MAP: Where offending a religion could get you executed – The article is low-grade propaganda.  The map shows Muslim countries naturally.  However, those who know their Bibles know that execution for offending the religion of the end times whore Church will be worldwide–and yes, that includes (especially?) the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.  So, no country-by-country map will be needed.
Finally, Hagee’s spin on knowledge in the text is amusing. He offers advancements in secular knowledge as the fulfillment of prophecy. First, what generation has not improved in knowledge?  As to the improvements in the world since the times before the coming of Christ, none can doubt. Great spiritual advancements have been made on all fronts. Their world was a one “which groped helplessly in pagan darkness, with slavery, polygamy, the oppressed conditions of women and children, the almost complete lack of political freedom, and the the ignorance, poverty, and extremely primitive medical care that were the lot of nearly all except the ruling classes.”Lorraine Boettner,  The Millennium, p. 38, (c) 1957.
Bought this book when I heard that John Paul Jackson and Joni Lamb both endorse it. Hagee looks at NASA findings, scriptural references and historical eyewitness accounts and finds a huge connection between the appearance of blood moons to upheavals in Jewish history and to Israel, God's time clock.The end times may just be closer than we think and that the survival of our nation depends on our support of Israel and our honoring of the Jew. I appreciate how Hagee showcased eyewitness accounts during upheavals in Jewish history like the Temple destruction in 70 AD, the Spanish Inquisition and the 6-Day War. In 2014-2015 there will be a Tetrad in the skies, a succession of four blood moons or lunar eclipses and a solar eclipse in the middle so as another Jewish upheaval is at our door and the nations around Israel are spewing hate, Hagee asks if we are ready for an imminent Rapture and the end times? The only thing I wished this book had was listing organizations that support Israel and practical ways we can prepare for the times. I highly recommend this book to every follower of Christ and every bible study group out there.

It is with humble amazement I present to you John Hagee’s warning.  As a person who was raised “No Rapture” then “Pre-Trib” rapture, then “Pre-Wrath” rapture, I always found myself confused to understand how one could suggest that “imminence” was the key to being prepared, but emphatically point to a set of “pre-requisite” happenings that MUST occur before the “Bride” could be “called up”.

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.
In his confusion of these two events, Hagee speaks of signs of Christ’s imminent coming. If the Rapture could have actually occurred at any moment since the first century, there really can be no signs leading up to the event. If something must precede an event, the event cannot occur at any moment. He says on page 106 that the snatching away of Christians “could happen at any time.” Hagee needs to revisit the Scriptures and work out a more logically and biblically satisfying sequence of events.

This is when this story changes from one about a stubborn rancher refusing to comply with a law he sees as unjust, to one about an increasingly militarized government, and politicians that selectively enforce the law. It becomes a story about militias and people willing to travel across the country and put their lives on the line to defend a rancher they have never met—and a nation primed to erupt with racial violence.
Furthermore, Hagee is unable to discern the sufficiency of Christ (Colossians 2:8-10) and therefore recommends psychological therapy. Hagee is unable to discern the error of both Christmas and Halloween, and gives absolutely no good guidance to those who might go to him for answers about these pagan holidays. Finally, Hagee is so undiscerning that he can not tell a false Christian from a real one (1 John 2:4), as he believes a pervert (Deuteronomy 22:5) might even know Christ.
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.- Joel 2:1-6.

It is important that we keep Christ central and our worship of Him unhindered in our observance of Christmas. However, we do not believe it is unbiblical to have a Christmas tree lighted and decorated in the home or the church. It has been suggested that the branches of the tree pointing upward can signify praise to God. The star at the top can represent the star of Bethlehem. Also, the green of the evergreens has been recognized as symbolic of eternal life, God's gift to us through our Lord Jesus Christ.

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
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.
Hagee has been described as demonizing Muslims and making false claims about Islam, especially through his rhetoric regarding Islam's intolerant and violent nature.[30][31] In his book Jerusalem Countdown, Hagee describes how "Islam not only condones violence; it commands it."[32][33] He has sometimes compared Islam's violent nature with Christianity's loving nature, as when he writes that "Islam instructs its followers to kill their enemies, but Christianity instructs its followers to love their enemies."[32][34] He has described the Quran as teaching Muslims to kill Jews and Christians: for example, in a September 18, 2006, interview on National Public Radio's show Fresh Air, host Terry Gross asked Hagee if he believed that "all Muslims have a mandate to kill Christians and Jews," and Hagee replied: "Well, the Quran teaches that. Yes, it teaches that very clearly."[35][36] John Esposito has described Hagee as "among the most hardcore Islamophobes."[37]

Just a note on a few small matters. When reading page 107, I wondered if Hagee believes in a partial rapture view, for he writes, “If you want to go with Him, you need to be watching for Him. We need to be watching, praying, ever-ready for the appearance of Jesus Christ who gathers those who believe in Him.” This may be due to carelessness in writing, but it is important to state one’s theology carefully since people often follow an author’s teaching. He mentions on page 109 that warlocks and witches today can call fire down from heaven. Documentation would be helpful to prove this. He goes on to mention supernatural bloodless surgery, but this has already been exposed as trickery. On page 169 he matter-of-factly states that the Antichrist is Jewish but provides no evidence from Scripture that this is so.
A full lunar eclipse typically causes the moon to look red due to the refracting of sunlight around the Earth, which bends light through its atmosphere before it illuminates the moon. Thus, these events are typically called blood moons due to their color characteristics. A set of four consecutive blood moons occurring in a row over a period of two years is called a tetrad and is considered a blood moon series.
Celestial bodies light our world and provide a way to track time. We can keep the calendar and know the seasons of the year from the sun, moon and stars. The beauty of outer space and its vastness provide inherent proof of God’s existence and creative power at work. But these truths are a far cry from what Hagee and Biltz are teaching – which is looking to a lunar moon cycle to try and determine future events. In the book of Daniel, the prophet was able to identify and interpret dreams of King Nebuchadnezzar through inspiration of God. When the astrologers and the enchanters failed, the Word of God was true.
"Under normal circumstances, given their complete inaccuracy, I would expect both pieces to be removed with the publisher's apologies, but as [Joseph] Farah is the driving force behind this narrative, the publisher of the outlet that posted the pieces, and WND has not even bothered to provide readers with the name of the author of the pieces, we've strayed quite far from normal circumstances," Morgenstern said.
Hagee prognosticates that Rabin’s death will cause Israel to move more toward peace and eventually even the surrender of the Golan Heights (11). Moreover, he projects that Israel’s and the world’s reaction to the death of Rabin will force this peace process to escalate (13-14, 28-30), and predicts that Rabin’s successor as Prime Minister will be Shimon Peres (8-9). For this he relied on poll results that indicated that Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu trailed Peres by 31 percent (8). Of course, Netanyahu did win the election. If Hagee could be so wrong about an event so close at hand, we may well question his more far-reaching predictions.
That being said, I wish it were available in a large print version. This is not my only Study Bible, but it is one of the top 3 or 4 that I own, and because of the thought-provoking articles such as the "Diamonds for Daily Living", and the well-done charts & maps, (as well as the fact that it isn't a large as a coffee table), it is usually the Bible I take when I will be away from home for days or weeks.

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.


From Daniel to Doomsday is a poignant account of prophecy from the writings of Daniel until the end is foretold in Revelation. Among the questions answered in this book are: Are we coming to the end of the world? What will happen on January 1, 2000? Will there be a germ warfare attack on America? Dr. Hagee deals with current issues such as China’s stolen American military secrets, Saddam Hussein’s rapid positioning for another attack on Jerusalem, Israel’s new prime minister, and more.
