    There's nothing in the Bible about the "Blood Moon" in Revelation occurring on a Jewish feast day or holiday.

    No there's not. He has simply stated an observation and I'm assuming a possible occurence if things hold true to the way they did the last couple of times this occurred on the Jewish holidays.

    I believe the Talmud , according to what was said, records that full lunar eclipses are omens for Israel.

    Maybe they were all signs. Do you know that anyone wasn't? Were you watching and listening?

    Nah...just a red moon. Caused by a number of factors. Means nothing eschatologically. :)

    Exactly. I don't think anyone can say definitively that he is incorrect. In his observation, the last couple of times this has happened, it's been big for Israel and the world. He's making an extrapolation based upon that.

    Agreed! :thumbsup:

    It should be telling that the craziest eschatological "prophets" (i.e I prefer hucksters) have chosen the cloth of the dispensationalist cloak for their flags. There are many dispensationalists I appreciate and respect. Reverend Hagee is not one of them. His dual covenantalism aside, there is no way to support his views of eschatology using a coherent dispensationalist system. He should be called out for his silliness and malfeasance towards Scripture. :saint:

    Trying to allegorize the Joel prophecy is as much lunacy as what Haggee is doing.

    But I expect nothing less from Burleson.

    This indicates the Americentricity of some eschatology. Israel isn't even seeing these eclipses. Does God base signs on the American continent, or are they for Israel?

    This teaching as about as much validity as the One that gave reasons why the rapture would happen over 20 years ago!

    Why would they be for Israel?

    I don't see that the comment had anything to do with bashing America. He was making the point that folks in America tend to have an eschatology that's seen through the prism of America. The same can probably be said for any country in the world.

    People tend to base their views upon what they know. Americans know America. We just have to remind folks that God is God of ALL and not just America. :laugh:

    An evil and adulterous generation seek after signs..

    Hagee is a false prophet..
    and in 2016 he will come up with another scam to dupe millions of ignorant Christians out of hard earned money.

    I agree.. why do American Christians think that Christianity revolves around us?

    We are so egotistical, it's not funny...

    Most of what is done on Easter Sunday (most conservatives in Baptist circles prefer Resurrection Sunday, I believe) is done to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. I'd enjoy knowing what you think is being done that isn't in honor, remembrance and celebration of that event.
    It is determined by the Hebrew calendar. It is a lunar calendar, which is extremely complex. We use the Gregorian Calendar, but it was designed to coincide with the calculations that determined the date of Passover. That was done because Jesus was crucified the day before the Passover Sabbath.

    All calendars are determined by astronomy (not astrology, which is a misconception). The fact this is Thursday, April 24, was determined 432 years ago when the Gregorian Calendar was introduced to replace the Julian Calendar, after it was found the latter allowed for a one-day error every 128 years. It helps to know facts before one spouts off to condemn things.
