Four Blood Moons Documentary

April 23, 2015

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…

Blood Moons

April 15, 2014

 

Have you heard about the renewed interest regarding the special days during 2014 and 2015 where  blood moons will be appearing in the sky?  According to reports from WND, several books written on the subject, and a few Messianic Jew programs on Daystar and TBN, there will be 4 blood moons appearing in the sky on Jewish holidays during 2014 – 2015.  The first one appeared last night (12:00 a.m. PT, 3:00 a.m. ET) on the eve of Passover.

Reports about such phenomenon have popped up in various places of late.  One of the biggest attention grabbers on the subject was when Matt Drudge had a headline at his website with links to articles about them.

From the first article:

Popular televangelist claims four blood moons are sign of ‘world-shaking event’

Four complete lunar eclipses will appear in the sky starting on April 15. Pastor John Hagee, of Texas’ Cornerstone Church, believes God is trying to communicate with humans through these celestial signs.

Four lunar eclipses are set to blaze in the sky starting on April 15. The eclipses will occur in roughly six-month intervals until October 2015. The blood moons fall on Passover and during the Feast of Tabernacles.

The heavens are putting on a celestial show next week — and one Christian pastor is convinced it’s a sign from God.

Bestselling author and televangelist Pastor John Hagee claims the four blood moons that will soon appear in the skies over America are evidence of a future “world-shaking event.”

The blood moons are part of a tetrad, a set of complete and consecutive lunar eclipses that will begin on April 15 and continue in roughly six-month intervals until October 2015.

According to NASA, seeing four complete lunar eclipses in a row is very rare. The skies were tetrad-free from 1600 to 1900. But in the 21st century, there will be many.

What’s even stranger is that Americans have a front row seat.

“The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA,” NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak told CNN.

Hagee, founder of Texas’ Cornerstone Church, thinks this is no coincidence. For him, it’s a sign of the end times.

The 73-year-old preacher has been preparing for the tetrad for years. He released a book about the blood moons last October and will go in depth about his speculations during a special TV event on April 15 on the Global Evangelism Television channel.

He points to Acts 2:19-20, which reads, “And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

In sermons to his flock, Hagee said that each of the blood moons happens on a religiously significant day.

The April 15 event happens during Passover. On Oct. 8, the blood moon will occur during the Feast of Tabernacles. Another blood moon will occur during Passover on April 4, 2015. The last will happen on Sept. 28, 2015, another Feast ot the Tabernacles.

For proof of his theory, Hagee finds connections between past tetrads and important events in the life of the Jewish people.

In 1493, a tetrad occurred while the Jews were being expelled from Spain. Another tetrad occurred in 1949, soon after the state of Israel was founded. The skies saw another tetrad in 1967, during the Six-Day War between Arabs and Israelis.

“Just as in biblical times, God is controlling the sun, the moon, and the stars to send our generation a signal that something big is about to happen. The question is: Are we watching and listening to His message?” Hagee writes in his book.

If you listen to (and view) the short video at that link, you will hear the condescending attitude of the speaker.  So…what else is new?  People all over the USA are writing comments on posts about their “theories” regarding the blood moons.  Those who have studied the Bible see the significance of these blood moons happening on special days in Israel’s history (see above article).

Now, the coming tetrad of  blood moons will happen on Jewish holidays.  The first of the tetrad appeared on the eve (at midnight on West Coast, 3:00 a.m. on East Coast) of Passover last night (April 15, 2014).  The next one will appear on October 8th during the Feast of Tabernacles.  Another blood moon will occur during Passover on April 4, 2015. The last will happen on Sept. 28, 2015, another Feast of the Tabernacles.

Those who have studied and understand that the Bible is true and the prophecies therein (many of which were fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the past; as will the last days prophecies which are to be fulfilled by Him in the future) are also true.  Therefore, we cannot miss the huge significance of these events in the cosmos!  They all will come to fruition!

With over 3 million posts about the blood moons on Start Page, everyone must admit that these phenomenon have stirred up a LOT of interest!

Of course, there will be the typical naysayers who will pooh-pooh such events.

But those who are in Christ and have studied the Bible cannot miss the significance of these blood moon events!

Hat tips to all links.

‘Blood Moons’ spark talk with Orthodox Jew

‘These could be prophetic warnings not to divide the land of Israel’

Published: 20 hours ago

(CHARISMAMAG) — In 2013, I had the special privilege to meet pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries. Pastor Mark is bright, friendly and engaging.

He expresses a unique love and support for Israel and immediately jumped on board as a partner and supporter of Heart to Heart, the virtual blood donation program I have the privilege of running from Israel. Ever respectful of Jewish tradition, we met at one of Seattle’s kosher restaurants and became fast friends.

While I had heard of and been questioned about the blood moons for months before we met, I knew that Pastor Mark had a special role in the awareness of this heavenly sign. In fact, he is the one who broke the code—so to speak—in 2008, brilliantly overlaying the occurrences of blood moons dating back thousands of years—no, he’s not that old; he used the NASA website—with the Hebrew calendar. His discovery is the talk among many pastors, churches and ministries, which even was the topic of conversation over Shabbat dinner in my orthodox Jewish home recently.
