Do the four blood moons of 2014-2015 have prophetic meaning? 1/3

All your debunked blood moon information in one place, several links

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There is a book which is exciting the hearts and imaginations of many Christians. It is even being remarked upon by secular people,

Death And Taxes: Pastor John Hagee sets new date for Apocalypse, based on ‘blood moons’ and Jewish holidays

By Jews,

Jewish Press: Messianic ‘Blood Moon’ Rising on Passover Seder Night

What is this book?

Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change

Pastor Hagee's subtitle to his book "Something is about to change" is correct. For two thousand years, things have been about to change. Paul wrote about that in 1 Corinthians 15:52, and Titus 2:13, and 1 Thessalonians 1:10, and Philippians 3:20, and Matthew 24:30, and 1 John 2:28, and Philippians 4:5... and so on. Something has always been about to change. The Lord's return for His bride (rapture) and His return in wrath and judgment (Second Coming, different from the rapture) have always loomed over us. His return is mentioned in every New Testament book except Philemon.

Pastor Hagee wrote a book that things are about to change is because he believes he knows when they are about to change. And therein is the excitement. Someone has a clue! Someone has an inside track! Someone is about to reveal when!

We long for the Lord so it's natural to long for His return when we can be with Him. (1 Thessalonians 4:18). Christians can know the season but not the hour (1 Thessalonians 5:4). Though the clues for the progress of the Tribulation are spelled out in detail (Rev 6-20, Matthew 24) the appearance of the Lord for His bride, AKA the rapture event, is not known. There are no signals and no signs to determine His coming. However, if we can see certain infrastructure being laid for the Tribulation then we can pray and hope the rapture is even nearer, since it will precede the wrath. (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

Pastor Hagee and Mark Biltz have intuited the times and have forecasted the Lord's return based on four red eclipse moons that will be appearing in 2014 and 2015. These blood moons, as they are called, are garnering special attention due to the fact that they will be occurring on Jewish feast days. Biltz and Hagee ascribe special significance to this.

  1. Elizabeth,
    Thank you for researching and writing about this current book & topic, including the background on Hagee. Now I can be better prepared to answer my friend when she asks me about this.
    My friend is a conservative Baptist, and her church seems careful about most biblical doctrines. But another Charismatic aquaintance shares these "prophesy" books with her, and she gets really wound up (emotionally) and doctrinally confused in her understanding.
    That's how the ladies at my biblically-conservative, expository-preaching Reformed church get such bad-doctrine books, too -- shared through undiscerning friends from other churches.
    On the upside, I can share your biblical arguments with my friend and she will listen (at least) because she rightly values the Bible's authority.
    I suppose there will be no end to the publishing of such misleading books until the Lord returns. So we pray, come Lord Jesus!

    1. Hi AndreaC,

      Thanks so much!

      I've been waiting for permission to reprint something for part 4 but it hasn't come yet so I may ditch it.

      Anyway, here is Jacob Prasch, a Jewish scholar, on Hagee, with kindness but very firm
      http://moriel.org/MorielArchive/index.php/discernment/israel/john-hagees-in-defense-of-israel

      and here is Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries on Hagee with more detail, she also quotes Jacob Prasch,

      I encourage you to check them out. I find also that other women in other churches give books to friends in our conservative Southern Baptist Church and that's one of the ways false doctrine gets in. Thanks for being such a good friend to your friend!

  2. Thank you for these links to additional information about Hagee's views. This will be helpful for cautioning my friend about believing Hagee's books.

    But as you pointed out (above): Hagee believes he knows when things are about to change. "And therein is the excitement. ... Someone has an inside track!" The exciting "news" and the offer of "insider" information is why "Four Blood Moons," and other such books, will sell so many copies.

    I hope many people read your posts about "Four Blood Moons" (and your blog) and follow your frequent encouragements to study God's Word carefully.

  3. Ok, so the blood means are indeed intriguing, especially as there is mention of celestial events occurring, in the End Times. However, we might also be advised to look a LITTLE less towards the literal sun, moon, and stars, to focus on the sun, moon, and stars, within the political heavens of Israel, with ref to the time of Yacov's trouble (Dan12)! The political heavens, will suffer their very own version of an earthquake, in the day of the Lord, when satan and its beast empire, shall fall like lightening from the lofty heights of the terrestrial heavens. But yes, the terrestrial events may be accompanied by celestial ones too!

  4. I have really enjoyed reading these blogs and all of the comments. I will add that I found a great Jewish source that is not from Hagee that discusses these 4 Blood Moons exceptionally well. Here is the link: The Coming Blood Moons - Pray4zion.org

    Every time a blood moon pattern has appeared on Jewish feast days a big event affects ... The meaning of the number "Eight"in the Bible is "New Beginnings"…
