Several years ago, it was noticed that a tetrad or a series of four blood moons would occur from April of 2014 to September of 2015. Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries of Bonney Lake, Washington first spoke about this phenomenon in 2008 and eventually published a bestselling book in 2014, “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs”. The dates of the four blood moons Biltz wrote about are April 15 and October 8 of 2014 and April 4 and September 28 of 2015. As if that was not enough, the blood moons would be further punctuated by other significant astronomical events, including a full solar eclipse on March 20, 2014 and a partial solar eclipse on September 13, 2015.
The prewrather thinks differently than the pretribber. Biblical prophecy and current events are not taken lightly. We are not giddy, but sober, for we know that before the second coming, we will become participants in the great persecution of the Antichrist against the world-wide Church. We do not wish this to come upon us; but if it does, we embrace God’s holy decree and trust in his faithfulness no matter the cost.
I have no problems with combativeness. Yashua was so combative the Babylonian trained theologians of the time made sure He hung on a tree. His tone was different. His choice of words was not self or other deprecating. I don’t have a lot of time for blogs anymore but today is His Sabbath and this is where I’m at. You sound angry. I wonder if is righteous anger or not? Been there, done that. It leads to the wrong place.
“Do you realize how deadly dangerous this trend of lawlessness is?” asks Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry. “Very few people do. But it gives profound insight into the real nature of the threat facing America today. … This trend toward lawlessness is deadly! And I guarantee, based on biblical prophecy, that it is going to get far worse” (America Under Attack).
The truly bad “shepherds” are those that do not preach being “ready” and “sin free” at all. The really frightening ones are those that preach “prosperity doctrine” and tell you if you “come to their church” you are “on the fast path” to salvation. And indeed there is a mixture of all these “beliefs” throughout most of the “mega churches” out there. Yes, probably even Pastor Hagee’s flock. But we should be praying for the “sheep”. Our hearts should “cry out” for the “sheep”. We should be begging our Father to have mercy on those “sheep”.
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.
The eclipse that took place on October 8, 2014 and the blood moon of April 4, 2015 was also not visible in Jerusalem, Africa or Europe! Even on September 28, 2015, which was touted as Jerusalem's last chance to be warned of its impending doom, only part of the eclipse was seen from the city. One must ask whether a sign that few people notice is much of a sign.
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum, national inter-religious affairs director of the American Jewish Committee, remarked that the Jewish community felt abandoned by Protestants after 1967. “There was a vacuum in public support for Israel that began to be filled by the fundamentalist and evangelical Christians,” Tanenbaum told the New York Times in 1983. That vacuum was filled by eager leaders like Hagee, who as a boy heard of Israel’s independence in 1948 over the radio in Texas. He recalled being “mesmerized” and realized that “the birth of the State of Israel confirmed the accuracy of the Bible prophecy.” As Hagee explained in a 2017 sermon, “supporting Israel is not a political issue, it’s a Bible issue.”
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.
A church member gave him the two books — “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s Roommate” — and then Mr. Jeffress sent a $54 check to the library for the cost of the books. “We wanted to highlight the problem in our community,” Mr. Jeffress told The Associated Press in May 1998. “I really hope people will look at the book and see what their tax dollars are supporting.”
However, work hard to understand what the Bible truly says about prophetic events that will dramatically affect your life. You can put your full trust in what the Bible records about the soon-coming climactic world events. “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts,” encourages the Apostle Peter (2 Peter 1:19). How wonderful that the Old Testament prophets and Christ’s apostles recorded all we need to know about prophecy.
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?
“Be fruitful and multiply” is both a blessing and a command. The union of one man with one woman is intended to produce children. This command is the antithesis of the pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agenda. It is not possible for two men or two women to produce a child. God created “male and female,” making marriage between two men or two women a clear violation of the law of God. God will only bless the union He created; therefore He blessed the union of marriage between a man and a woman with children,”
Hagee has been described as demonizing Muslims and making false claims about Islam, especially through his rhetoric regarding Islam's intolerant and violent nature. In his book Jerusalem Countdown, Hagee describes how "Islam not only condones violence; it commands it." 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." 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." John Esposito has described Hagee as "among the most hardcore Islamophobes."
Why would anyone want to vote Tory or Labour? The MP's we have in this country are pathetic. They are out of touch with the public, have no common sense and regard themselves as above the people who employ them. The swamp needs draining badly, the stench is overwhelming. The employees refuse to do what they are told so should be sacked.Vote Brexit party at the MEP elections and in all future elections.
It is evident from Hagee's answer that he believes a person can actually have the Spirit of God dwelling within them, be saved, and yet be a pervert ("I'm a man, but I like to dress in women's clothes"). This denies the power of godliness (2 Timothy 3:5). Hagee even mentions Deuteronomy 22:5 which points out that those who do such things are an abomination to God. Yet, here talking to such a person, Hagee reveals he believes that such a person could actually have peace with God in the midst of such wickedness ("If you have received Jesus as your Savior and Lord, His Spirit then dwells within you"). Revelation 21:8 reveals that the abominable will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death. Someone who knows Jesus Christ (1 John 2:3-5) would no longer be such a pervert (John 8:31-36; Romans 7:22).
This FALSE DOCTRINE is a commandment of men that brings an unwarranted fear upon the hearts and minds of those who may leave their “coverings” churches. They are plagued with thoughts they are under a curse and any negative circumstances in their lives is a result of them not having a “spiritual covering,” this is what their leaders will tell their followers. Talk about witchcraft! My God Help us all!
I don’t get souls. He does. If I convince someone with my persuasive skills someone else can sway them in a different direction later. Words are cheap. If the person I’m interacting hears the Holy Spirit, they will be saved. Peter (Keffa) heard the Holy Spirit. He knew. He still had a lot to learn and to go through but he knew. Flesh and blood evangelization is satanic deception. That’s why there are so many “so called” believers that have no fruit. And so called shepherds not warning them and pushing them out of their comfort zones even if it costs them revenue.
This series covers many great questions of the Bible, like, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The answer is “yes.” Find out why the Lord commands us to love our neighbor as ourselves. While the world around us might look chaotic, God has a plan for not only our survival, but how we can thrive until the day of Christ’s return. Do you know the signs of the second coming?

I do not agree that paying attention to the four blood moons is a heresy or unbiblical. The fact is that the blood moon IS mentioned in scripture and so is the blackened sun….both twice. So we need to at least observe things the way our Lord tells us to and make our lives right in His sight and be prepared for him WHETHER these signs in the heavens portend Jesus actual 2nd coming or not.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth is directly in alignment between the moon and the sun, “blocking” the sun’s rays from reflecting off of the moon. However some sunlight filters through the Earth’s atmosphere and hits the moon, giving it a reddish color, hence the name “blood moon.” Hagee credits NASA for confirming that a sequence of four lunar eclipses, or a tetrad will occur in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in September 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkoth. The timing is the same for 2015 — a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.
John Charles Hagee (born April 12, 1940) is the founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church, a megachurch in San Antonio, Texas. Hagee is the founder and National Chairman of the Christian-Zionist organization Christians United for Israel. His televangelist message is broadcast nationally in the United States as well as elsewhere, via his non-profit corporation Global Evangelism Television and others.
Hagee, pastor of Cornerstone Church and author of the newly-released book “Four Blood Moons,” told his 22,000-member congregation recently that the appearance of four blood moons on Jewish holy days between April 2014 and October 2015 points to a “world-shaking event” that could signify the beginning of events leading up to the seven-year Great Tribulation.
Really it wasn’t a challenge to bring the message from the book to the screen because the message about the book is about the contribution the Jewish people have made to the world, and especially Christianity, and the hope that we have as believers that in this world of chaos, in a world that’s upside down, in a nation that is losing its sense of direction, that God almighty is still in charge. He knows the end from the beginning and he’s told us when you see these signs in the heavens, don’t run to the cabinet and start swallowing Tylenol. Lift up your heads and rejoice; your redemption draweth nigh.
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.”
Great Article. I can’t really add anything to it that youhave not covered. I will say the Hebrew Roots movement is deceiving many. even though they know the word of God they are allowing the word to be twisted in the lie of going back to the law. And Most likely because they have been so disspaointed in their churches. Pray for the body of Christ to see the truth.
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.
But is Bundy really the evil, cold-hearted racist he is made out to be? Notice what Bundy also said that was not reported by the Times: “[A]nd so what I’ve testified to you—I was in the Watts riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen that last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people are thinking they don’t have their freedoms, they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.
The remarks by Graham, Netanyahu and Bachmann come amid a steadily rising wave of public interest in the end times, as demonstrated by recent polls and New York Times and Amazon.com bestselling books such as “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future,” by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, and “Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change,” by Pastor John Hagee.
While there is great cause for alarm, we do not fear the future. Revelation is a drama of triumph for the Church! It’s not a horror story. It’s the story of the Church of Jesus Christ overcoming the world, the flesh and the devil! It’s the story of the Church triumphant overcoming death, hell and the grave! It’s the story of the rapture of the Church…right out of the living hell now being created by a godless society.
For American evangelicals like Hagee, 1967 was a miraculous event with prophetic significance. It reinvigorated their enthusiasm for Israel. Before 1967, the coalition of American support for the Jewish State was comprised primarily of Jews and mainline protestants. Leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Reinhold Niebuhr formed the base of Christian support.
My hope is not in my understanding, or my faith, or my anything. My hope is Him. He is my only hope. Yashua didn’t save me just over two thousand years ago. He does every day, never slumbers or sleeps and the sad thing for me, is that the more I know Him, the less I can understand him. He doesn’t even need that. He wants my heart. He earns it every day.
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
I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT EVERYTHING THE POSTER I’M QUOTING MENTIONED, I LEARNED FROM PASTOR MARK BILTZ. CONTRARY TO POPULAR OPINION, HE ONLY PREACHES SCRIPTURE AND DOESN’T CLAIM TO KNOW WHEN JESUS IS RETURNING–SIMPLY THAT WE ARE TO BE ON GOD’S CALENDAR AND THAT ALL THE PLANETS/MOON/STARS BELONG TO HIM. HE DEFINITELY PREACHES THAT YESHUA IS THE MESSIAH, AND THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN IS THROUGH HIM.
1- Why does it seem that practically all of the people who have warned of the New World Order have remained in that system–even after warning of it? Oh, there have been a few who have maintained that they have “broken free” and turned traitor. And, undoubtedly, the enemy sacrifices, from time to time, one of his own in order to increase their “street cred.”
The eclipses in the 2014 - 2015 Tetrad all lasted less than two hours. The darkness that fell over Egypt as punishment for not releasing the children of Israel from slavery lasted for three days (Exodus 10:21 - 22). The day of the Lord, however, when God miraculously causes the moon to appear as blood, will last approximately eighteen months! This Biblical sign of the end of man's rule on earth will be so spectacular that it will be undeniable (Revelation 19).
In his book Blood Moons, Mark Biltz writes: “In March of , I saw on the Internet an incredible total lunar eclipse over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. I had read all the Bible verses in Isaiah, Joel, the Gospels and Revelation where the text talks about the moon turning to blood and the sun to sackcloth. I began to ponder the possibilities of tying the eclipses mentioned in the Bible to the possible coming of the Messiah.
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.”
I don’t follow Mark Biltz, whoever he is. What the four blood moons that are occuring in 2014 & 2015 do is to keep Christians observing things just as Jesus commanded. We are supposed to ‘watch’ and anyone that has noticed that those four blood moons falling all on Jewish high holy days plus a solar eclipse sandwiched in between them also on a Jewish high holy day….cannot help but wonder what this portends. Whether it signals the end of the world and the coming Jesus Christ I do not know…but it’s got my attention that’s for sure.
Bundy and his family ranched in Nevada’s Gold Butte for almost 70 years before the blm even existed. The Bundys, like many other ranchers, were induced to settle the area with the promise of free grazing land with no fees or limitations. It was part of the government’s plan to develop the West—and the Bundys did their part. It was a win-win situation.
