You and I do not know what the future holds but we know who holds the future. Time is in God’s hands.
Isaiah 46: 9-10 reads, “I Make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.”
Notice what Isaiah the prophet said, “I Make known the end from the beginning…” We can only know time from its beginning to its end. But God says I know everything in time from its end to its beginning. He knows time in reverse. He knows everything as if it already happened. In other words one of the things that proves to you that I am God is that I can foretell future events, be they individual, local, national or international, before they happen. I never get it wrong. I never get it partially right, but I’m always 100% right, bulls’eye, pinpoint, 100 % right.. No other person, be they Satan, Allah or Zeus can do that. As I prophesied that the Messiah would be born of a virgin 800 years before it happened, that he would be born in a little village called Bethlehem 500 years before it happened, as well as hundreds of other events, so you can trust me to know what is going to happen in the 21st century.
The Four Blood Moons
This is a subject that takes some effort to grasp. While I can tell you about it, you must do your own understanding. I suggest John Hagee’s book, “Four Blood Moons” and the book by Mark Biltz, “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs.” Though they are slow reads they well worth your time and effort.
Here are some very interesting prophetic verses.
Joel 2:28-31,”The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”
Matthew 24:29-30, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light.… And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
Here Christ prophesies that in the end times there will be signs in the heavens that will point to His soon return and lead to the repentance of many:
In Acts 2, after the Holy Spirit was poured out, Peter quotes the prophet Joel 2:30–31 saying: “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 great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”
To the unbeliever all this is mystical and unscientific but to the bible believer it indicates that the sun, moon, and stars do far more than mark physical time; that they reveal what is scheduled to take place on God’s calendar. A sign in the heavens, a star, led the Wise men to the Messiah so we can be led to believe in Christ by coming prophetic, celestial signs in the heavens. (Genesis 1:14, Matthew 2:1-2)
Many Evangelical scholars believe that the coming Four Blood Moons are Signs for Our Times. They are a sign that something big, colossal, even earth changing is about to happen. However, all the scholars that I have read will not say what these Four Blood Moons specifically forecast. I appreciate their wisdom; for we know that prognosticators are not prophets. The better part of wisdom is to watch these events play out for themselves.
What Is A Blood Moon?
A blood moon is when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon. When the sun shines through the atmosphere of the earth it casts a red shadow up on the moon; thus a red moon.
Four successive Blood Moons (or lunar eclipses) are going to occur. The first one on April 15, 2014 and six months later on October 8, 2014 and six months later on April 4, 2015 and six months later on September 28, 2015. This astronomical fact is verified by NASA.
These four consecutive Blood Moons (lunar eclipses) are called a tetrad
Although there is nothing unusual about tetrads, as they have happened before; this time, however, each Blood Moon Tetrad (four lunar eclipses in a row, each one six months apart) is going to fall on a High Jewish Feast Day. That is what makes this tetrad so significant. That is why you should become acquainted with them.
What end-time event are they predicting? We do not know; but the way so many end-time prophecies are now converging together it appears to be something awesome, dramatic, that could shift the course of history. Stay focused, stay prepared. Keep your eyes on the skies, God’s billboard, God’s high definition video screen upon which no false prophet can re-write the script. As Matthew 24:44 says, “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
I believe that we are in the closing chapter of history as we know it. The culminating signals are all around us, converging upon us like great warning signs. God’s curtain call may be nearer than you think; certainly a lot nearer than the unbelieving world thinks.
The next tetrad is scheduled to happen 500 years from now; do you think God’s patience that ran out with Noah’s generation can last that long.
Lessons from History
What do Blood Moons from the past teach us? Here are some very Interesting factoids.
A Blood Moon Tetrad occurred between 1493 and 1494 immediately following the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.
A Blood Moon Tetrad occurred between 1949 and 1950 on Passover, coming right after the 1948 rebirth of an independent Jewish state, which was followed by the war for independence.
A Blood Moon Tetrad occurred between 1967 and 1968, following the 1967 “Six Day War,” during which Israel liberated the entire city of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount where the First and Second Temples once stood. For the first time in 2,000 years, Jerusalem, in its completeness, was the capital of the Jewish state.
This is fact not fiction, not a matter of interpretation. However, Jewish tradition based on their Talmud tells us that lunar eclipses are bad for Israel and solar eclipses bad for the gentiles. There are events in history past that bear this out.
My Theory on the Four Blood Moons
I hope you noticed the word ‘theory.’ In other words, this is written in sand and not in stone.
Two great prophetic events have happened to the Jews in the last 66 years;
- They became a state in 1948; after 1878 years of being dispersed to 195 nations of the earth.
- They gained their capital, Jerusalem in 1967 after winning the Six Day War.
- But there is a third prophetic event that must happen in Israel and that is she must have her own temple.
Could it be that some earth-shaking event, some unprecedented decision will take place during the next Four Blood Moons that would give Israel a Temple of her own? If so; it will be the beginning of the end of the gentile age and usher in the beginning of the rule and reign of the Messianic Kingdom on earth.
