God will then initiate a spiritual revival in Israel by pouring out The Holy Spirit among the newly reconciled and repentant Israeli believers. This is established by the prophecies that will be spoken among the people. At this point, the context of Joel 2 should be clear: this is an end times revival in Israel. It is a time where God is directly intervening to carry out judgment on enemies of His people and restoring a nation that did not acknowledge Him and seeks repentance. And this is where we approach the critical verse for the Blood Moon Theory:
Now that I have offended a whole lot of other people I will conclude with something a friend of mine. who realized that the thousands upon thousands of Dollars he wasted on Theological Schools, said to me: (others have also said that same thing) When we stand in judgement before The Lord one of the things we’ll hear ourselves saying over and over is “Oops, I guess I got that one wrong also.”
Reid’s comments went viral. It became a rallying cry for the right. Protesters mused: So we are domestic terrorists for protesting a heavy-handed government that is taking away constitutional freedoms—but when Maj. Nidal Hasan actually murdered 13 people at Fort Hood army base, that was just “workplace violence”? To many protesters, Reid’s comments seemed to confirm their worst suspicions.
Perhaps a reason why the president is so well-liked among evangelicals—aside from clear agreement on core conservative policies—is the overlap between his style and that of evangelical pastors like Hagee. Both are brash, compelling, and humorous speakers. Security guards flank their stages. They are identity-driven political actors who present a gloomy picture of the U.S. in decline, and their values or policies as the only solution to what ails the country.
