The prophet Joel predicted thousands of years ago that in the End Times the Lord would “show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.” He also said, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord” (Joel 2:30-31). In the sections on World War III this prophecy was seen to be associated with a coming nuclear holocaust, which will take place during the Great Tribulation or the last 3.5 years of this age. Some have also seen in this prophecy a correlation to the presence of blood moons, which are astronomical phenomena associated with full lunar eclipses.
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.
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”.
Over the last 500 years, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover three separate times. These occurrences were connected to some of the most significant days in Jewish history: 1492 (the final year of the Spanish Inquisition when Jews were expelled from Spain), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence) and 1967 (the Six-Day War). The next series of four blood moons occurs at Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015.
"If you’re asking about my personal opinion, there is no greater sin in terms of wrongly using God’s name than women who use it during sex. That is one of the filthiest, most derogatory and sinful uses of the Lord’s name I can think of. If it were up to me, I would put every single woman or girl who does that in jail. That would be a fine example of God’s wrath aimed at what is, in my opinion, a terrible misuse of our Maker’s good name.”
I thank you for praying for me, I do need your prayers and I will keep you in mine, along with many other Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Messianic and Orthodox Rabbis and even New Age gurus. I can’t convince, nor do I want to. Trying to talk religion to people who have YHWH figured out is like trying to tell a Green Bay Packer fan that he’s got the wrong team.
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).
For the unbelievers out there, there are many false denominations and people who claim to be Christians that do not believe the Bible. The vast majority are very easy to identify to anyone who knows the Bible. For instance the Bible clearly teaches that whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved (Rom. 10:13) meaning salvation is by faith alone. Most Christians do not believe this even when they say they do believe it… ask them if a person can live however they want and still be saved and most will say “of course not”… betraying the fact they are still trusting in their own righteousness to save them rather than the finished work of Jesus Christ. (The word ” repent” that gets thrown around so often comes from the same root word we get “pensive” from, thus “re-pent” means to “re-think”.)
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.
I want to thank you for your time and for your love, or should I say His love in you. You, and so many other men and women of G-d are on my heart and in my prayers and I am not trying or have not tried to convince you, or any of these people in so many different denominations and theologies of anything. When I made the statement that upset you to some pastors who honestly and earnestly seek Him, their reaction was different. Their theology probably was or their meaning of my words affected them differently. Semantics is a rabbit hole that usually leads us to waste the precious little time we have left to get some souls out of here before this age ceases and this place blows up.
You will enjoy this sermon by Pastor Matt that paints a picture of the Good Shepherd who wants only the best for his flock. Do you need an anointing in your life? The healing power of God, through the Holy Spirit, can anoint you and heal every wounded place in your life. God has been saying this since the beginning of time. “I am the God who heals.” If you are in need of a special touch today, or know someone who is…let the Psalms found within this sermon saturate and heal the broken pieces of your life.
Once again, if you are a Christian who is buying into the Blood Moon fever, this should be an enormous red flag. Nowhere in Scripture are we told that Jesus “desires to go home” to the Old Testament law. Biltz does not agree with Biblical Christian doctrine and does not believe that Jews even have to believe the Gospel for salvation. He has completely ignored the rebuke Jesus gave to Israel in Matthew 23. He has ignored the fact that all people need the Gospel of Christ to be saved. He is instead preaching a works-based religion based on the law (which Beginning and End has shown is a false teaching). For a more detailed study exposing the many false teachings of Biltz, see Dr. Scott A. Johnson’s teaching here.
The claim of a blood moon being a sign of the beginning of the end times originates in the Book of Joel, where it is written "the sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes." This prophecy repeated by Peter during Pentecost, as stated in Acts, though Peter says that the date of Pentecost, not a future date, was the fulfillment of Joel's prophecy. The blood moon also is prophesied in the Book of Revelation chapter 6 verses 11 – 13, where verse 12 states, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood."
Hagee, like any savvy preacher depending on his flock for ongoing financial largesse, always hedges his bets. Not wanting to be associated with the false prophesies, nasty publicity, and outright zaniness of someone like Harold Camping, Hagee is careful to couch his apocalyptic warnings in more nuanced "someday the end of days will come" rhetoric. This way, he gets to spout End Times warnings and still retain plausible deniability.
However, ESI’s original petition indicated that they did not hear from Hagee for the rest of 2003 despite repeated attempts at contact. By June of 2006, according to court records, Hagee was working on a deal with media mogul Rupert Murdoch for 24-hour access to a television station to market Judeo-Christian religious products, including ESI’s Dead Sea products. The deal did not close.
Some cases of identity theft simply involve someone stealing the credit card out of your wallet. Often, though, the theft is much more insidious—and far-reaching. In November and December last year, Target’s credit card payment system was hacked, and 40 million card numbers and 70 million other pieces of customer data were stolen. Experts say it may be years before the thieves finish vending their treasure trove of personal information to other would-be thieves.
Dr. Hagee has been honored so frequently by the Jewish community because he holds a deep passion for the Jewish people. He has been to Israel at least 20 times and has met with every Prime Minister since Menechim Begin. John Hagee Ministries has given more than $3.7 million to bring Soviet Jews from the former Soviet Union to Israel. Hagee has also written many books dealing with Jewish issues as they pertain to prophecy fulfillment.
