Pastor Hagee: Blood moons point to 'world-shaking event'
Houston Chronicle ^ | April 10, 2014 | Kolten Parkey

Posted on 04/11/2014 5:35:51 AM PDT by C19fan

Megachurch pastor John Hagee is warning his San Antonio congregation and international following of a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”

And, no, he's not talking about Fiesta.

Hagee, founder of the Cornerstone Church, points to “four blood moons,” a rare astronomical event of four consecutive and complete lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad, which begins April 15. The San Antonio pastor asserts the dates of the eclipses signify a major event that will change history in a book released in October, a series of sermons and a TV special airing on Tuesday, the first night of the tetrad.

Hopefully the earth-shaking event will be Iran getting it’s arse kicked by Israel.

3 Jewish holidays fall on a full moon every year. The odds of a full lunar eclipse falling on a Jewsih holiday are pretty high. Only one of the tetrads this cycle will even be visible from Jeusalem. Making a big deal out of this is kind of like saying, “There is something big happening, somewhere, and at sometime.”

These tetrads have historically coincided with major events concerning Israel...
Tetrad 1. Spanish banish Jews; Jews discover America

Tetrad 2. Israel re-established as a nation in 1948

Tetrad 3. Israel re-gains most of their lands in 1967 (6 day war)

Tetrad 2014-2015:

I believe will center around Israel regaining full control over Jerusalem and the temple mound. The mosque currently there will most likely be destroyed or removed.

These events will probably begin with war declared against Israel by neighboring countries (Arab nations) as prophesied in Psalm 83.

These blood moons are more of a wake-up call than anything else. Whatever event happens will be God's doing and we need to trust Him.

We need to heed His admonition to look up and know that our salvation is at hand.

God gave us the heavens to forewarn of future sacred events.

Genensis 1:14:And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,

However, Jesus also warned about the scoffers. When He returns it will be too late...

MATTHEW 24:36-38

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;

Only the Father knows.

Sin, Confession and Redemption

59 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,
nor his ear too dull to hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated
you from your God;
your sins have hidden his face from you,
so that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are stained with blood,
your fingers with guilt.
Your lips have spoken falsely,
and your tongue mutters wicked things.
4 No one calls for justice;
no one pleads a case with integrity.
They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies;
they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
5 They hatch the eggs of vipers
and spin a spider’s web.
Whoever eats their eggs will die,
and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.
6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;
they cannot cover themselves with what they make.
Their deeds are evil deeds,
and acts of violence are in their hands.
7 Their feet rush into sin;
they are swift to shed innocent blood.
They pursue evil schemes;
acts of violence mark their ways.
8 The way of peace they do not know;
there is no justice in their paths.
They have turned them into crooked roads;
no one who walks along them will know peace.

9 So justice is far from us,
and righteousness does not reach us.
We look for light, but all is darkness;
for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.
10 Like the blind we grope along the wall,
feeling our way like people without eyes.
At midday we stumble as if it were twilight;
among the strong, we are like the dead.
11 We all growl like bears;
we moan mournfully like doves.
We look for justice, but find none;
for deliverance, but it is far away.

12 For our offenses are many in your sight,
and our sins testify against us.
Our offenses are ever with us,
and we acknowledge our iniquities:
13 rebellion and treachery against the Lord,
turning our backs on our God,
inciting revolt and oppression,
uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
14 So justice is driven back,
and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets,
honesty cannot enter.
15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

The Lord looked and was displeased
that there was no justice.
16 He saw that there was no one,
he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;
so his own arm achieved salvation for him,
and his own righteousness sustained him.
17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate,
and the helmet of salvation on his head;
he put on the garments of vengeance
and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.
18 According to what they have done,
so will he repay
wrath to his enemies
and retribution to his foes;
he will repay the islands their due.
19 From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord,
and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
For he will come like a pent-up flood
that the breath of the Lord drives along.[a]

20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion,
to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,”
declares the Lord.

21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord.

America is currently going through the same cycle that Israel went through in Isaiah 9. Our leaders even quoted Isaiah 9:10 when the same thing happened to us on 9/11. The same signs appeared in America as they did then.

As far as the timing--9/11, the stock market crash in 2008, and Sept 2015 all have one thing in common. They all fall on the beginning of the Jewish year of Shemitah--the year of debt forgiveness.

Read Jonathan Cohn's book The Harbinger for a more thorough explanation of the events happening. He doesn't predict anything--he merely explains what has already happened.

NASA began the conversation. Mark Biltz researched this phenomena and made the connection with the Jewish Feasts. Hagee’s book reflects that research.

The Bible says that new revelation will come to people in the latter days.

Blood Moon at Passover means that what ever is going to happen will hit Israel first. Blood means war and death. I would think its a WMD of some sort-—Bio-weapon or a Nuke. Next will be Europe and or USA. Might mean that Ukraine will blow up and become a major land war-—Russia vs Poland/NATO. What ever happens its a bad omen.

Genesis 1:14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,

“Seasons” as other translations use, in Hebrew, is “appointed times”. God was setting the stage for His commanded “feasts”. Messianic Rabbi Mark Biltz was the first (to my knowledge) to point out the Tetrad. He is the one that pointed out the earlier Tetrad’s based on NASA’s findings.

What is interesting is that the eclipses did not occur prior to the events of 1492, 1948 or 1967, but after. Just as the Star of Bethlehem did not appear to the Magi prior to the birth of Yeshua, but after the fact.

Matthew 2:1-12 1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:

6 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’[b]”

7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

It is my experience that Messianic Jews (Jewish people that have accepted Yeshua as their savior) have the deepest, most complete, understanding of the Bible and what God is saying/doing.

As far as Hagee, didn’t he teach replacement theology at one time?

>>I believe will center around Israel regaining full control over Jerusalem and the temple mound.<<

May be a shared arraignment based on scripture.

Zechariah 14:4 - And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.

Not a problem. I put very little credence in anything Hagee says, but based on my own study of prophecy and today's world events, I believe the pages are turning as we speak in God's holy plan.

It is clear...based off of prophecy alone, not some preacher man, that satan’s false prophets are alive and well. They set out to deceive as many as they can.

Those whose hearts yearn for the Lord, yearn because God alone gave it to us through our commitment to the Son of God. It is our duty to help others see God's holy plan unfolding and to do it in a way that checks with scripture as we best understand it through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

What I do take issue with, Christians being SUPER critical of other Christians on points that are not considered the essentials of our faith. NO ONE has it completely right...not even you, nor I.

We study. We pray. We remain vigilant, then we pray some more.

I believe that God has, does and will provide signs in the heavens that precede major biblical events.

In the case of Hagee, if one sits back a moment and analyze his statements, they are partially true. Problem is that they are very vague and general.

A squirrel finds an acorn every now and again. Just be careful and check everything with scripture and the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

I think the pastor has astrology confused with Christianity.

That's what I thought, too. Does this mean he's given up preaching his prosperity gospel, or if you buy his book, will you be safe from this impending doom?
