Four Blood Moons Documentary

During my visit in Virginia, my brother, mom, niece and I went to see the one night encore movie presentation of Four Blood Moons. It was well done and interesting to see how history, science, and Scripture all came together when the phenomenon of blood moons occurred in the past.  All of us were very impressed!

Excerpts from site:

FOUR BLOOD MOONS combines scripture, science, history and big-screen live action spanning centuries, including previous similar lunar occurrences and the earth-shaking changes around them. It also examines our current four blood moon cycle—and its possible meaning for Israel, the Middle East and the world.

An array of historians, religious scholars and commentators appear in FOUR BLOOD MOONS and offer their insight—filmmaker, speaker and author Dinesh D’Souza; radio host and author Dennis Prager; and noted author and historian David Barton to name just a few.

Only three times in the past 500 years have four of these blood moons (or tetrads) occurred back to back and on major Jewish holy days. The fourth tetrad began April 15, 2014, on Passover. In October last year, the second blood moon appeared on the Feast of Tabernacles (also known as Sukkot). Blood moons in 2015 land on the same holy days.

FOUR BLOOD MOONS examines the biblical passages seemingly connected to these events—in Joel and Acts—where it says the “sun will be darkened” and the moon will appear as blood in advance of God’s world-changing action on earth.

Hagee points out that during this four blood moon cycle, all of which touch on Jewish holy days, a solar eclipse also will occur–a combination of events that will never repeat.

Whatever the results, audiences at FOUR BLOOD MOONS will see a compelling and entertaining exploration of these spiritual, celestial and historical events. And they will leave the theater convinced that something is about to change that could impact us all.

There was a panel discussion after the credits of the movie ended which was quite enlightening! Not all panelists (especially the scientist) thought the same way about the blood moons. The scientist stated that blood moons are common – so there is no reason to think that they affect history and/or Scripture. Pastor Hagee pointed out:

Only three times in the past 500 years have four of these blood moons (or tetrads) occurred back to back and on major Jewish holy days. The fourth tetrad began April 15, 2014, on Passover. In October last year, the second blood moon appeared on the Feast of Tabernacles (also known as Sukkot). Blood moons in 2015 land on the same holy days.

Coincidence?

Maybe.

Skeptics like the scientist said so.

The significance of the past occurrences in history lining up with this scientific phenomenon; and the fact that Scripture (in Joel 2 and Acts 2) tells us of blood moons helps believers think that it is our Creator’s way of communicating big events to us.

No one can deny that the radical Islamic jihad occurring all over the Middle East and North Africa over the past 2 years aren’t life changing events in and of itself!  Unfortunately, such events are terrible!

What is it all leading up to?

We shall see…

    The scientist (whom you neglected to name) had every right to voice his skepticism, even though it wasn’t really skeptical, just a simple statement of fact. Even though it didn’t dovetail with what Hagee claims. Unlike Hagee, the scientist is an astronomer; studying astral phenomena is his profession. He is also a believer, or Hagee would never have had him there in the first place.

    Because of what he said, Hagee inadvertently debunked his own theory:

    [quote] On Saturday evening (April 4 –GM), right-wing televangelist John Hagee hosted a special program designed to promote his “Four Blood Moons” theory which contends that the occurrence of four lunar eclipses on Jewish feast days over the last two years is a sign from God that “something dramatic [will] happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world.”
    Moderated by conservative radio host Joe Pagliarulo, the program featured Hagee, pseudo-historian David Barton, Rabbi Aryeh Scheinberg, and astronomer Hugh Ross, a creationist who runs a ministry called Reasons to Believe which seeks to “spread the Christian Gospel by demonstrating that sound reason and scientific research” support Creationist beliefs.
    Ross’ participation in the event was something of a mystery since, from his opening remarks, he made it very clear that he did not subscribe to Hagee’s premise in the slightest, saying that there is no statistical significance to these blood moons because they are very common and that Hagee is merely retroactively attaching spiritual significance to these routine events.
    Hagee, of course, did not particularly appreciate the fact that Ross was completely undermining the entire premise of the show, as well as his book and movie based upon this premise, and so he challenged him to explain how it was possible for blood moons to occur on significant Jewish holiday in two consecutive years.
    Ross responded that lunar eclipses are so common that it is “mathematically inevitable” that one would be able to link them up to significant events in the Bible or in the history of Israel if that is what one set out to do. The Bible, Ross said, does say that there will be signs from God, but they will be rare things like an asteroid hitting a body of water and turning the water to poison, not common things like a lunar eclipse.
    “My problem with the blood moons is that it’s not rare,” Ross said. “It’s hindsight. You’re looking at different events in Israel’s history and looking at different events in America’s history and you’re finding fits.”
    “These blood moons are visible here but not in Israel,” Ross stated at one point, much to Hagee’s surprise. Explaining that “a total lunar eclipse basically is visible to about one-third to one-half the earth,” Ross asked why, if these blood moons are so significant to Israel, they are visible in America but not in Israel.
    Hagee clearly was not aware of this fact, as all he could come up with as a response was that “I don’t have an answer for why Israel can’t see it”.[/quote]
    Hagee was clearly working in the belief that his audience was as ignorant about astrophysics as he is. Dr. Ross didn’t approach the subject that way. Hagee can say all he wants about linking certain events with blood moons, but he made a claim which could be tested—and he lost. I suspect it will not be the only one.

    Ran across this comment over at “Before It’s News”

    Ron!

    What you have surprisingly overlooked, in relation to the blood moons surrounding 1492 are the events that actually involved the Jews!!! Instead, you cite the defeat of the “Moslem army”. While important, I would argue that the Alhambra Decree, ordering the expulsion of all Sephardic Jews from Spain was far more relevant to the Jewish experience. In fact, it was contributory to the number of Jews accompanying Columbus on his voyage to America, which launched on August 3rd, the day following the feast of Tisha B’av, commemorating the destruction of first and second temples in Jerusalem. That was also the date that the Jews either had to convert to Catholicism or leave Spain.

    It is also worth noting that these major Jewish events occurred BEFORE the Blood Moon tetrads. Why would not the same be true in this occasion, which means it requires us to ask what occurred prior to April 2014? The answer: Spain issued a “decree” welcoming back the Sephardic Jews! How ironic that the 4th tetrad of Blood Moons mirrors the 1st tetrad of 1492.

    Another interesting page to see:

    2014-2015: A Tetrad of Four Blood Moons, all on
    Jewish Feast Days and in the Shemitah Year
    a once in a two millennial event!

    Take note of this:

    Shemitah Year Events of the Twentieth Century: The rising up and the falling of empires.

    1917- America rises to power ending World War I. The rising of the Communist State of the Soviet Union.
    1917- The defeat of Germany. The fall of the Czar of Russia. The fall the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The fall of the Turkish-Ottoman Empire.
    1938- German Nazis attack Jewish businesses and burn Jewish Synagogues on Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass.)
    1945- Nazi Germany is defeated. The Atomic bomb is dropped on Japan thus ending World War II. Japan signs peace treaty the same week of the end of the Shemitah year.
    1945- The United States becomes a military super power. The U.S. dollar becomes the world standard currency. The United States is the richest country in the world, and the world’s largest lender nation.
    1973- The United States Supreme Court declares that America’s can kill their unborn babies.
    1973- The World Trade Center is completed which is a symbol of Americas economic strength.
    1973- America looses its first war to Vietnam. Nixon takes America off the Gold standard. This sets in motion the decline of the U.S. dollar.
    1980- The U.S. Supreme Court bans the posting of the Ten Commandments in Public Schools. Thus God is now completely banned from our public schools in America.
    2001- The World Trade Center buildings (the symbols of Americas economic strength) are destroyed by an Islamic terrorist attack. One week later Wall Street has one of its greatest collapses on the last day of the Jewish Shemitah Year.
    2008- Exactly seven years later, Wall Street suffers its largest decline. America is now the world’s largest debtor nation.
    2014-2015- In Sept of 2014 we start a new Shemitah Year. This happens in connection with a Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons which all occur on Jewish feast days. As the United States has turn away from God and endorsed many sins, it is very possible that God’s judgment will fall on America during this year of the Shemitah.

    CJW: ”…the fact that a tetrad of blood moons have happened at significant times in history, and only occurred on Passover three times in the last 500 years is significant to believers!”
    To Jewish believers it may be significant, but you’re not that kind of believer!

    ”We find out in that video that the last blood moon of the tetrad in Sept. 2015, will be a Super Moon in a Shemitah year and visible in Israel.”
    What’s a “Super Moon”? Does it swell to twice its size? Will it push the other planets around? Does it send out powerful X-rays down to Earth? Does it look anything like this?
    Also, why would a Shemitah moon matter to you, or any other Christian? Perhaps it matters to Jews, but you’re not one of them. You don’t observe Passover, you don’t sit shiva for a deceased loved one, you didn’t hold a bar/bat mitzvah for your children, but you observe Christmas and Easter. So why are you choosing which Jewish activities and events to observe, and which to ignore?

    Jesus4Evers.com says:
    Now what about the total solar eclipse that NASA says will occur on March 20 2015, you might ask? History reveals that a total solar eclipse usually coincides with a major event in regards to the gentiles. Again, we don’t know what this event will be but there’s a good chance it’s going to be something big!
    Again, this claim can be tested. March 20, 2015 was one month ago: what ‘major event in regards to the gentiles’ do we have?

    Well, let’s see. A partial solar (NOT lunar) eclipse was seen across western Africa, all of Europe, and northern Asia.
    In Israel, Benjamin Netanyahoo!, fresh from his re-election victory, flip-flopped again on his position regarding a separate Palestinian state. (Before the elections, he swore he’d never allow it.) This is most likely that ‘major event’.
    My elder sister’s birthday was that day.
    The swallows returned to San Juan Capistrano (sorry, no, that was the day before).
    Ah! The Supermoon–a total lunar eclipse—was visible. But it could only be seen in parts of Norway and the Faroe Islands. Unless Norway has been manipulating world events for centuries without anyone knowing it, I doubt that qualifies.

    Maybe you can find something more in accordance with the prophecy.

    ADDENDUM: Yes, I see you have.

      GM,

      You continue to ignore the FACT that the Old Testament, Jewish history, and the importance of Jerusalem in Israel are all involved in the foundation of Christianity. It would take too long to explain it all, but I will attempt to summarize through some examples.

      Fact: Jesus, the Son of Man and Son of God was born into Jewish ancestry.

      Fact: Jesus taught the Torah in the Temple

      Fact: Jesus observed the Jewish festivals

      Fact: Jesus was FIRST ACCEPTED by Jews as the long-awaited Messiah, because He came “first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”

      Fact: Before the term “Christianity” was used, followers of Jesus called it “The Way.” This is based upon this Bible verse where Jesus said:

      Jhn 14:6

      Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

      This was, of course, considered “blasphemy” by the Pharisees because claiming to be the Son of God in their eyes was “of the devil.” When Jesus said, “I am,” it was sacrilege to them because they believed that only God the Father, Yahweh, deserves such a title. However, we know that another Hebrew word was also used to describe God – Elohim – which is plural and used in Moses’ writings about the creation of the world.

      There is much more to share, but I need to get to my new post this morning.

      Suffice it to say that those who rejected Jesus as the awaited Messiah continued in Judaism. Those Jews and Gentiles who accepted Jesus as the Messiah are called Messianic Jews (who continue to celebrate all of the Jewish holidays as well as recognize Jesus Christ as their Messiah) and Christians who may not be led to celebrate the Jewish holidays, but IMHO, ought to at least recognize them as important historical events.

      The 28 minute video that I suggested for readers to view at this link provides valuable information as to how accurately Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection to life fulfilled the Passover.

      Wasn’t the end of March supposed to be a finished agreement between the U.S. Government and Iran? Perhaps Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech (on the anniversary of the Jewish day of Purim – where Esther approached the King at risk of her own death to warn of Haman’s evil plan to kill the Jews) was paramount in getting the U.S. PEOPLE (rather than the government) and the world awakened to the taqiyya lies of the Muslim Mullahs in Iran regarding their nuclear program. If Iran is only 2 months away from a nuclear weapon, then I don’t see any reason why they would hold back from using it against Israel. Their goal all along is to annihilate Her and “push the Jews into the sea.” They obviously can’t be trusted, but 0zero and his ilk continue on in “negotiations” that WON’T WORK!

      I don’t claim to know what will happen before, during or after the 4th blood moon this coming September. But as the video that I suggested for you and others to watch, we are told in Scripture – through Jesus’ own words – that “signs” will be shown to us. See Luke 21, especially note:

      Luk 21:25

      “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;

    True.

    Fact: Jesus taught the Torah in the Temple
    True.

    Fact: Jesus observed the Jewish festivals
    Fact: Christians do not observe the Jewish festivals.

    Fact: Jesus was FIRST ACCEPTED by Jews as the long-awaited Messiah, because He came “first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.”
    Fact: PAUL said Jesus came “first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.” Jesus HIMSELF said he was “sent only unto the lost sheep of Israel.” Nor was he accepted as the hoped-for Messiah: “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” Only after his death did the Jesus Legend begin.

    Fact: Before the term “Christianity” was used, followers of Jesus called it “The Way.”
    True.
    Jesus was Jewish, and observed the Jewish festivals and rituals, as you noted. You, however, do not, and neither does any other Christian. If you did, you would be Jewish, as he was. Yet you still continue to pretend, calling his god YHWH or Elohim, and morphing his words and ideals into a religion that has little to do with what Jesus knew, and practiced.
    Why are you choosing which Jewish activities and events to observe, and which to ignore?

      GM,

      The disciples were Jews…weren’t they? Paul (formerly Saul) was a Jew who was converted from persecuting Christians to being one of the greatest missionaries for Christ.

      Jesus wasn’t rejected by all Jews. The first believers were Jews.

      As I wrote previously, Jesus was the fulfillment of the Passover. Christians can respect the Jewish feasts and choose to celebrate them or not. The Messianic Jews still celebrate them for it is part of their heritage. Christians celebrate The Last Supper in remembrance of Christ’s sacrificial death.

      I don’t know why you seem to object to me pointing out Jewish activities and events.

      In the case of the blood moons, the signs are for both faiths. The blood moons movie had a Jewish Rabbi and Jewish commentator (Dennis Prager) who see such signs and shared their own beliefs about what they mean. Of course, the events of 1948 and 1967 were instrumental for Israel and the Jews returning to their homeland; and this was meaningful for both the Rabbi and Prager. They were also meaningful for the Christians discussing the phenomenon in the movie and were discussed more in depth during the panel afterwards.

      Like I previously wrote, my fact list was not a complete list of all the facts in Judaism being the foundation for Christianity. Perhaps you missed the post entitled How the Passover/Seder Reveals Jesus Christ. That essay is yet more evidence of the eternal connection of Judeo-Christian beliefs that are outlined in the Bible.
