Blood Moon Prophecy and Four Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015

On April 15, 2014, there will be a total lunar eclipse. It will be the first of four consecutive total eclipses in a series, known as a tetrad (the remaining three eclipses will take place on October 8, 2014, April 8, 2015, and September 28, 2015).

It will be one of 8 tetrads during the 21st century AD. Like all eclipses, it is probable that the moon will appear to be a dark red color during the eclipse due to the refraction of sunlight through the Earth’s atmosphere. This is the same effect that causes sunsets to appear red.

The Blood Moon Prophecy

The Blood Moon Prophecy is an idea popularized by Christian pastors John Hagee and Mark Biltz that states the upcoming tetrad (a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which begins with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of significant things to come. Biltz believes that the Second Coming will coincide with the final eclipse of the tetrad, while Hagee only believes the eclipses are a sign of coming change in the course of history for Israel.

The Blood Moon Prophecy quickly gained attention on the Internet shortly after Biltz first proposed it in 2008, and gained mainstream media attention shortly before the April 15, 2014 lunar eclipse. Hagee’s book on the subject became a best seller.

Despite the attention, few Christians believe the prophecy. It has been criticized by both mainstream Christian sources and secular astronomy blogs. Critiques point out that tetrads that correspond with Jewish feasts are not as rare as Hagee and Biltz imply, that the eclipses will not be visible in Israel, and that the Bible also states it is impossible to know when the Second Coming will occur.

In John Hagee’s book, Four Blood Moons: Something is about to change, he argues that the timing of the eclipse and subsequent eclipse in the tetrad (all coinciding with Passover and Sukkot) and the “rarity” of a tetrad is strong evidence a major change of course in history will occur. Both Hagee and Biltz note that the last three tetrads to coincide with Passover and Sukkot roughly corresponded with important events in Jewish history: the 1493–94 tetrad roughly aligns with the 1492 expulsion of the Jews from Spain; the 1949–50 event roughly corresponds with the re-establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 and the ensuing 1948 Arab-Israeli War; and the 1967–68 tetrad started right before the Six Day War. The tetrad is thus seen a “sign” of things to come.Overall, there have been 62 tetrads since the first century AD, eight of which have coincided with the feasts of Passover and Sukkot.

Biltz goes further than Hagee, equating the eclipse with Joel 2:31. The verse says the moon will turn to blood “before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.” The probable red appearance of the moon during the April 15 eclipse is thus equated with the verse. Five other verses (Isaiah 13:10, Joel 2:10, Joel 3:15, Matthew 24:29, and Revelation 6:12) are also cited. Biltz predicts that the Second Coming of Jesus will coincide with final eclipse of the tetrad.

Four Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015  – Big Changes are Coming…

“…There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars…Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:25a, 28

The Book of Genesis says God uses the sun, moon, and stars for signs and seasons. Examples can be found throughout the Bible.

Think of how a star led the wise men to Jesus or how the sun stood still as Joshua led Israel to victory over its enemies.

According to Pastor John Hagee, God is getting ready to speak this way once again.

“There’s a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way,” Hagee told CBN News.

“I believe that in these next two years, we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world,” he predicted.

Four Blood Moons

In his latest book, Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change, Hagee lays out what he calls celestial signals. He describes how a series of blood moons in 2014 and 2015 will have great significance for Israel.

Although single blood moons happen fairly regularly, four appearing so closely together is extremely rare. There have only been a series of blood moons a handful of times over the past 500 years.

So what exactly is a blood moon and what is the biblical significance?

“A blood moon is when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon,” Hagee explained. “And the sun is shining through the atmosphere of the Earth and casts up on the moon a red shadow. And so the moon appears to be red.”

Such moons appear several times in scripture.

In the book of Joel, God says there will be “wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire…the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”

In Acts, the Apostle Peter repeats that verse from Joel. And the book of Revelation says that during the Great Tribulation, “the moon will become like blood.”

Blood moons are set to appear in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in September 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot.

The timing is the same for 2015 — a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.

“The sun and the moon and the Earth are controlled by God almighty,” Hagee said. “He is the one that is getting them in a direct alignment on a certain day at a certain time — but each time, it’s a Passover or Sukkot.

Historic Significance

In the past, the rare appearance of four blood moons on these feast days has coincided with major events for Israel and the Jewish people.

In 1492, Spain expelled the Jews. Columbus also discovered America, which became a safe haven for the Jewish people.

“In each of these blood moons, you have something that begins in tragedy and ends in triumph,” Hagee explained.

For instance, in 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation.

“After 2,000 years, God supernaturally brought them from 66 nations and a nation was born in a day,” Hagee noted. “That again was a supernatural something that happened following the tragedy of the Holocaust.”

In 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War and recaptured Jerusalem.

“For the first time in 2,000 years, Jerusalem and the State of Israel were together again,” Hagee said.

Nuclear Threat

The blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are poised to appear as Iran works toward nuclear weapons and Israel’s neighbors, Egypt and Syria, are in chaos.

“The only reason that Iran will not acquire a nuclear bomb will be that Israel chooses a military solution to that crisis,” Hagee told CBN News.

“I believe that if that happens, it will start a series of events that will change the course of world history,” he said. “If Israel does not, then it will still change the course of world history.”

Hagee has been warning of the Iranian nuclear threat through his work with Christians United for Israel, which he founded in 2006. It is now the largest pro-Israel organization in America, with some 1.3 million members.

He holds nights to honor Israel across the country and at San Antonio’s Cornerstone Church, where he serves as senior pastor. The first event, in 1981, drew bomb threats and vandalism from anti-Semites.

Yet Hagee continues his mission.

“If there was ever a time for the Christians of America to stiffen their spine and stand up and speak up, it’s now,” Hagee admonished. “To see evil and not call it evil is evil. Not to speak is to speak. We cannot be silent and receive God’s approval at a time like this.”

He said it’s still unclear what the coming blood moons will bring, but he is certain of one thing.

“When all is said and done, the flag of Israel will be flying over the walls of the city of Jerusalem when Messiah comes, and it’s going to be forever,” he said. “And every nation that rises up in judgment against Israel God will punish and punish severely.”

Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change

4bloodMoons_book

It is rare that Scripture, science, and history align with each other, yet the last three series of Four Blood Moons have done exactly that. Are these the “signs” that God refers to in His Word? If they are, what do they mean? What is their prophetic significance?

In this riveting book, New York Times best-selling author, Pastor John Hagee, explores the supernatural connection of certain celestial events to biblical prophecy—and to the future of God’s chosen people and to the nations of the world.

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?

8   Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 
9   And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

    What I find most interesting about these blood moons is how quickly they follow the December 3 alignment and the December 21 hoopla. Remember the bible says there will be signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars… One could argue all have come to pass. .. The Sun has changed from our vantage point…. From a yellowish color to seemingly white color… The alignment of the planets Mercury, Venus and Saturn with the Pyramids at Giza and now these Blood moons. Or perhaps these moons and the planetary conjunction are a for shadow towards the Sun behaving badly soon thereafter. The only good news is we don’t have long to wait.

    In the Old Testament God spoke to his prophets in Hebrew. Through the translation of Hebrew into English there are many differences. Before we come to any conclusions we need to know exactly what the Hebrew Language says. I would suggest befriending some Jewish people – they can tell you the truth.

    Today every Christian has his theory but do you fully know how long it takes to change the world, its simple one day. If suicide bombers just show up and start blowing up everything and they say who ever does not bow down in the name of Allah will be killed do you know how many Christians would be the first to bow down, a lot why because they are too clueless to what is going on around them. The anti Christ has always been Islam. In Islam they too believe in God but they say God has no son, So what does the bible say about who is the anti Christ, It is he who says that Jesus is not the son of God. So when you see terrorist be fore warned you have not seen the last of them. Today the world is controlled by the internet and electricity, shut down the internet then chaos will arise suddenly people will not have access to their banks and so on think about it Christians. I dont want comments from none Christians or people who have never read the bible. the end is near and a war is about to break loose and it will all be starting in Israel and by the Muslims to get the Land of God. Just read the book of Joel where God says they have divided my land so who else wants to divide the land of Israel

    • justin says

      they wanted to divide the land of Israel right from the onset of Islam in the 9th century when the prophet Muhammad peace be on him declared all Jews as a legal prey to all Muslims and he captured all their farms and large settlements in Arabia the agriculture of which was all of Jewish refugees escaping the wrath of Rome that constituted half the Arabian population.first they were allowed to continue farming because Muslims did not farm they were a bunch of robber gangs but were forced to pay 50% tax and later they were offered death or conversion.the city Medina was established by Jews and was a rich prosperous Jewish center called Yatrib changed by the conquerors to Medina which is just “the city”in Arabic.this went on in the east bank of the river Jordan in Israel in Syria which was a huge Jewish community and later throughout the whole Islamic empire.

    Actually the so called ‘blood moons’ as characterized by the delusional roman understandings does not comprehend the basis for prophecy or the real meaning of the movements of the heavens. There are 6 full moons between these four lunar eclipses. 3×6=18. The eighteenth abjad for most semitic languages is the Tsade or sign for righteousness. These are the ‘Tsade Moons’ or the time of ‘righteousness. When the Tree of Life was sealed 5775 years ago the 7 year release cycles were exposed. 5775 is one of those cycles. If the family of the earth does not ‘release’ the earth, the earth will ‘release’ itself….

    I’m going to say this,
    I think that Hagee is a hoax, everything that the Illuminati want to disseminate makes this way.
    This man is a hoax and a devilish server, not telling the truth creating the perception that they want to install in the hive mind or the collective incocnient.
    Cris Putnam and Tom horn, Christian theologians seems to me the best responses.
    Thanks :)

      I would be careful about slandering an anointed man of God who preaches God’s word! If you know your Bible, you know what will happen.

      • Blanca says

        John Hagee has been predicting the ‘imminent’ return of Jesus for over 20 years now. He wrote ‘The Beginning of the End’ in 1996, lol. Perhaps he is operating under a definition of the word ‘imminent’ that I was hitherto unaware…or perhaps he is a false prophet. If you ‘know your Bible,’ you know what you should do with a false prophet. (Deut. 13)

        It’s not really Hagee’s fault he’s a liar; he’s been handed a crap sandwich in the form of the ancient mythological ravings of Bronze Age-era goatherders (the Bible), and he has to make the best of it. People have been predicting the ‘imminent’ return of Jesus for 2,000 years now. They’ll be predicting it 2,000 years from now, unless people finally catch on to their power-trip hoax.

        Yes, yes, I’m sure you think I’m possessed by Satan or something. All I can say is, don’t hold your breath waiting for this ‘blood moon’ thing to pan out. Go on and live your life.

    well said Brenda! Blood moons may be significant to Israel or whatever, but as said there is a lot more to be done before Jesus’s coming such as new world order and deception. God wants to work in his people in mighty ways and bring in many more to Christ before all of this goes down. Id say maybe 50 or 70 + years but almost certain not this year or next.

    • Brenda Brown says

      Hi Star
      I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I had been replied to. I hope you’re still looking around. Yes, there’s a lot going down regarding the New World Order, and deception, and it all must and will be dealt with – in Spirit, prior to its actual, literal demise. And yes again, there is a very mighty move of God in the making now, but it’s going to take some time to really become visible to a lot of people. It’s this move that is going to usher in the coming of Christ, so I would have to say that we’re looking at approximately 30 – 35 years for the whole process to play out. There’s so much to this issue it would really be worth its own lengthy discussion.

    In sideral astrology the actual zodiac in april is pisces, which is a fish and the fish appears in the bible. Jesus uses the fish to show his power and jesus is using the stars, moon and the sun to show us something. In october it wouldn’t br libra but it would be virgo which represent the Virgin, Jesus mother who also wants to help us and pray for us.

    • says

      Indeed, Jesus was born, in the spring when the Sun was in Sidereal Pisces. At the same time, there was a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the Fish. This latter,, often the hallmark of a founder of a religion.

    While I totally agree that God uses His creation to signal important events, there is no way that Jesus will return on or before the last ‘blood moon’. There’s far more to His return than mere sign-posts – as if it is some sort of guessing game. There’s a purpose in His coming which people seem to have lost sight of, not to mention there’s a lot more to His coming than Him dropping to the earth. It’s about Jesus having put all enemies under His feet (I Corinthians 15: 20 – 28) both in His own people, and then in the spirituals, and that has barely begun to occur.

    I would suggest not treating the Bible like a compilation of verses – though I know the interpreters and printers of the Bible have made that notion a little hard to get over. It’s a compilation of books, written in actual paragraphs, and should be read as such if its true sense stands a chance of being understood. A case in point is the verse in Genesis concerning the sun, moon, and stars given for signs, seasons, days, and years – it is a portion of several verses that when read together, clearly state the Zodiac is God’s creation, and describe its intended operation, though again, the interpreters needed serious help.

    We are however, in a very significant time period right now, with God bringing forth the New Thing in those He’s prepared – which is critical to get people prepared for His coming. Each year now certain things must be done in order to usher in the Day of the Lord, so it would be hard to pick any time when something important isn’t going down in the Spirit, if not in the physicals. So while ‘blood moons’ may have some significance, they aren’t major signs in themselves, nor are they the place to look if you really want to know when He is coming.
