    ‘End of days’ theory fueled by rare Blood Red Moon Tuesday night



    The rare event, called the opposition of Mars, took place a week before sky watchers on Earth will be treated to the first of four consecutive lunar eclipses – the first occurring on April 14.

    What’s so special about this? These astronomical events will bring four so-called “Blood Red Moons,” something astrologers call momentous.

    The four red moons, according to Christian extremists, are a foreshadowing of the “end of days” and the second coming of Christ.

    “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the lord comes,” [Joel 2:31] reads a passage from the King James bible.

    Planet alignments, lunar eclipses, biblical passages – they’re all elements linked to apocalyptic events that we have all heard before.

    But in this case, the accompanied four “blood red” moons – which will start next Tuesday and end in September of 2015, has only occurred three times in the past 500 years.

    According to historians, each time it happened it coincided with a globally significant religious event.

    It was in 1493 during the expulsion of Jews by the Spanish Inquisition where the first occurred. The second occurred simultaneously with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1949, while the third happened less than 20 years later in 1967 where it coincided with the six day Arab-Israeli war.

    While some are already counting down the days, others maintain that it’s all just an astronomical coincidence.

    Haggee has engaged is some very poor exegesis to come up with this as he picks and chooses parts of passages to make his case while ignoring context and other parts of passages that destroy his thesis.

    Even the lazy pretribbers think that we are at least 7 years from that day, anyways.

    Haggee's doing his part to ensure that there is a falling away, for sure.

    What Haggee calls a blood red moon astronomers call a total lunar eclipse. Haggee seems to think it is significant that four of these will happen in a row and that they will happen on Jewish holidays.

    According to NASA there have been eight instances of "four blood red moons" in the 21st century alone. Since 1 A.D. there have been 62 instances of four total lunar eclipses in a row. It is true that there have been only three instances of four total lunar eclipses in a row the past 500 years that coincided with Jewish holidays. But, interestingly only one of the upcoming four total lunar eclipses will be visible in Israel. So why are they significant to Israel if they can't be witnessed there?



    Israel was established in 1948, not 1949. Furthermore, the establishment of Israel and the Six Day War were not religious events.

    Put me down for just a coincidence.

    I don't really listen to Hagee but it seems that those few minutes I have heard him he is more obsessed with Israel than he is with the Gospel and Jesus Christ. Perhaps I just caught him at a bad time.

    You can't make crazy sound crazier unless its over realized dispensationalist eschatology.

    Every lunar eclipse since 2000 has been a "blood moon" because of the filtration of sunlight through the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere and the level of pollution -- almost all of which is caused by developing countries such as China and India -- bending the light spectrum that strikes the moon. This nonsense about "blood red moons" is totally bogus. It means nothing until it happens during the Tribulation, and despite PiJ's unnecessary slam of dispensationalism, I don't plan to be here then. If he wants to be, he can stay -- but the choice really won't be his. :laugh:

    Nope. Close, but not quite. There have been "blood moons" before 2000. It is the dust and yes, pollution in the atmosphere that scatters the higher frequency wavelengths of light - - only the longer infrared wavelengths can get through the dust. China and India's output of pollution will enhance the red effect but it's nothing new.

    Haggee so conveniently ignores the fact that the blood moons of which he speaks will be cause by smoke rising out of the destruction that goes along with the same prophecy. It is not just any old so called blood moon.

    That's a great point. More dust in the atmosphere, deeper red color of the moon.

    Whatever the cause, a sign in the heavens is a sign in the heavens. There shall be a sign in the heavens... :)

    And this so called blood moon is not one of the biblical signs.

    How do we know this? That's just like saying because you hear the rumor of a war that it's not part of the wars and rumors of wars.

    Well bub, go watch Haggee's video on youtube and then study the issue in scripture yourself.

    Jesus leveled the playing field: Mt.16:4,"...wicked and adulterous people seek a sign...

    Only one sign: Jonas' three days and three nights in the belly of a great fish. Jesus spent the same time in the grave between crucifixion and resurrection.

    Many still choke on that one. We got holy week all mixed up in terms of chronology and church practice. Given Jesus death in the afternoon and his grave found empty at the dawning of the first day of the week, He did not rise on Sunday morning.

    Most of what is done on Easter Sunday is pure pagan idolatry derived from the mother of idolatry located in Rome.

    Interesting: the date for Easter is determined by astrology/astronomy???

    "A little leaven leavens the whole lump"

    Now what?

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    Which one was/is "The Sign in the Heaven"?

    Or to rephrase, "Why is this particular upcoming sequence of four total lunar eclipses "The Sign" when all the other ones weren't?

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe Pastor Hagee made the point that they rarely occur on those Jewish holidays and that the last couple of times that it did happen, there have been major wars involving Israel.
