“The heavens are ‘God’s billboard.’ He’s been sending signals to Earth, and we haven’t been picking them up,” Hagee is quoted as saying in a press release on the new movie. “Two blood moons, in 2014 and 2015, point to dramatic events in the Middle East and, as a result, changes in the whole world.”
Is it that “we haven’t been picking them up”, or is it the fact that other than thinking of the sun as a source of our tan, and the moon as a prop for romance, most of us would only notice the 2nd coming if God comes by way of the hand-held device that has literally absorbed us head to toe. I’ve developed a new respect for animals. They’re the only ones, as far as I can tell, who’ve managed to avoid the life-stunting addiction. But alas, I digress…
The “Blood Moon” is a phenomenon of the heavens that occurs during a total lunar eclipse with the earth between the moon and the sun. The rays of the sun passing through the earth’s atmosphere paint the moon a soft blood red. The “Tetrad” is a series of four blood moons back to back. They are often referred to as “Biblical Tetrads” because they’ve been prophesied throughout Holy Scripture… And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 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, NKJV)
There have only been three Tetrads since 1AD! We are smack dab in the middle of number four! The first blood moon occurred on April 15, 2014 (Passover). The second occurred on October 8, 2014 (Sukkot). The third will occur during the coming Passover on April 4, 2015. And the fourth and final blood moon is due on September 28th (Sukkot)…the Jewish “Feast of the Trumpets”!
According to John Hagee, who has made the study of this lunar phenomenon a primary lens of his ministry, it all ties to God’s relationship with Israel and the Jewish People. Far from a spiritual quack, Hagee is an amazing historian and scholar who also happens to be a close personal friend of Benjamin Netanyahu’s. He was in the gallery seated alongside Senator Lieberman during Netanyahu’s powerful speech to Congress on March 3rd. Imagine, if you will, the connecting line between God and the words of your personal friend, as they reverberate off the chamber walls, into the ears and through the minds…and hearts of America.
Here’s where it gets very, very interesting. The first Tetrad took place in the years 1493-94 during which time the Jews were expelled from Spain. According to Hagee, it was the Jews who funded the voyage of one Christopher Columbus! The next Tetrad came in 1949-50…let’s see…what significant “earth-changing” event was taking place around this time? The birth of the Jewish State of Israel! The Jews re-captured the Holy City of Jerusalem during the 3rd Tetrad of 1967-68. And we are now in the fourth as Israel once again is faced with the very real threat of destruction by her enemies, just as she was by another Persian Potentate 2,500 years ago. Only this time there are multiple nations aligned against her…they are named. Among them; Russia, Libya, Egypt, Turkey, and of course let us not forget…Iran.
Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.” Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.
I’m thinking this may be a very good time to begin looking up dear friend. By the way, these earth-shattering events foretold in the best-selling book of all time has just been made into a movie! Be engaged on the ground, but study the heavens as you search your own heart and soul to know where it is you are standing. Pray, meditate and fast! Hint- It is only about geography here on the earth…of which you are not.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. ~ Zechariah 12:9
