THE BLOOD MOON PROPHECY ERROR


Mark Biltz and John Hagee have indirectly hinted that the second coming of Christ, the battle of Gog and Magog or Jesus planting his feet on the mount of Olives based on Zech 14, Joel 2 and Matthew 24 or some other huge catastrophic event on from April 14th through 23 September 2015.

They have taken literally the statements “the moon shall turn to blood” and are using to predict a coming and many forget that the book of Revelation informs us that they are signs. Based on the timing of the 2nd coming it means we are already in the millennial reign of Christ.

Hagee says Joel 2:31 “the sun will be darkened, the moon will be turned to blood” is going to be fulfilled in the following:

a) 2014: two lunar eclipses
b) 2015: solar eclipse (sun will be darkened)
c) 2015: two lunar eclipses
d) 2015: Thursday, November 28. Hanukkah and Thanksgiving on same day.

The blood moons which scientists have informed us called Tetrads. According to scientists this tetrads (four consecutive lunar eclipses) are common over last 4000 years:

1. There are 111 lunar tetrads on record by NASA between 1999 BC and today (the 2014-2015 tetrad will be the 112th).
2. Incidentally, 56 of those were BC, which means the coming tetrad is the 56th AD (which means nothing, since NASA’s record could have gone back further than 1999 BC).
3. Of the 55 tetrads that have occurred since the first century AD, there have been 7 (not 3) of them have coincided with Jewish holy days.

Biltz has figured out When will the Messiah come. September 23, 2015. And yet Jesus said, “…of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Mark 13:32) In verse 33 He says, “Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.” Are we to believe that Biltz knows the time, but the Lord Himself does not?

Their public videos and the books look remarkable and convincing but even a superficial examination exposes the error that leads people away from truth. The unfortunate thing is that many Christians do not even study their Bible when it comes to issues like this.

So they someone do their study for them.
A cross study of their statements reveals a Zionist theology. Biltz and Hagee are huge proponents of national Israel and believe that the Jews remain God’s chosen people. Hagee believes the Jewish people will be saved without becoming Christians before they die. Biltz is part of the Hebrew Roots movement, which casts doubt on the writing of the apostle Paul, and affirms that the Jewish nation “…will fulfill their mission in taking Torah to the nations.” The apostle Peter confirmed and accepted the writings of the apostle Paul as Scripture (2 Peter 3:14-16). There is no mission to take the Torah to the nations – the Torah is a dead law (Romans 10:1-4; 2 Corinthians 3:7-18; Ephesians 2:14-16; Colossians 2:14-17; Hebrews 8:6-13; etc.).

Absolutely, the Bible speaks of the celestial bodies being used for signs, and there are a number of times in the Scriptures where this was the case (some are listed above). Language about the sun, moon and stars is used prophetically of the fall of Babylon (Isaiah 13:10), the destitution of Egypt (Ezekiel 32:7), the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD (Joel 2:10, 31), etc.. But, here’s the thing: the lunar eclipses that Biltz and Hagee are claiming to be signs of impending event in Jewish history are not foretold in the Bible.

God’s word did not speak about tetrads of lunar eclipses being associated with events in Jewish history to take place in the 1400s, the 1900s, nor the 2000s. The significance of these tetrads and the stated events is entirely based upon their Zionist theology, which as indicated above, is contrary to the Bible.

Joel 2 is the Biblical evidence used by Biltz to link the Lord’s return with these coming eclipses. Verse 31 speaks of the sun being turned dark (assumed by Biltz to be a solar eclipse), and the moon into blood (assumed by Biltz to be a lunar eclipse). But what about the earthquake and the stars (v 10)? If Joel 2 is about the Messiah’s return, why hasn’t Biltz (and Hagee) been explaining where these fit in also?

Joel 2:28ff is not about the Messiah’s return in our time and age. The Bible has already revealed what the text is about. In Acts 2, where the beginning of the church is recorded (Acts 2:38-47), Peter declared, “…this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel…” (v 16). Joel’s prophecy spoke of the gifts of the Spirit and the message of salvation. Both of these were revealed on that day. 


What about the darkening of the celestial bodies and the “great and awesome day of the LORD” referenced by Joel? These did not happen that day. These are parallel to Matthew 24:28-30. The greater context in Matthew 24:1-36 deals with the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, which includes the Messiah’s return in judgment.

These were signs that God was to put out the lights in Israel and that the Jewish system of worship was to end and another to be established. A new nation where its foundation would be Jesus and Him crucified would be the new world established by grace. 

As John saw in Revelation 21:
22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
These glory is now in the face of Jesus. This is where the kingdom is established.

Now according to data, the dates for the other 4 lunar tetrads which occur on Jewish holy days are:

See below historic tetrads of Biltz and Hagee and MISSING TETRADS!
A. Missing Tetrads of greater importance to Israel
1.       There was no Tetrad in 1446 BC when Israel left Egypt in the Exodus
2.       There was no Tetrad in 1406 BC when Joshua entered Canaan in the Conquest
3.       There was no Tetrad in 723 BC when the ten northern tribes went into Assyrian    Captivity
4.       There was no Tetrad in in 587 BC when Judah went into Babylonian captivity
5.       There was no Tetrad in 538 BC when Cyrus proclaims the Jews could return to Canaan.
6.       There was no Tetrad in 533 BC when the Jews began their return to Canaan from Babylon and arrived in Jerusalaem.
7.       There was no Tetrad in 1-2 BC when Jesus was born
8.       There was no Tetrad in 33 AD when Jesus was crucified
9.       There was no Tetrad in 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed
10.   There was no Tetrad in 135 when Hadrian renamed Jerusalem “Aelia Capitolina”, renamed the land “Palestine” after Israel’s archenemy the “Philistines” (Goliath) and killed all the Jews and expelled them from Canaan.
11.   There was no Tetrad in 1943 AD when Hitler killed 6 million Jews during the Holocaust of the second world war.
  


The “Four Blood Moon” theology of Biltz and Hagee is “Endtime error” in circulation. The supposed significance to this fairly common celestial occurrence is just to further postulate the error of the 2nd coming of Jesus which took when he appeared in judgment over Israel in 70AD. It is not something that God has revealed, either through Scripture or to them.

Biltz and Hagee focus on the three mentioned above because they perceive a connection between these celestial activities and major events in Jewish history. Their prediction involves the destruction of Iran and some Arab nations. These are false predictions like the over 400 I have personally seen or read. The problem is that they put God’s children in fear and drive them to works-based Christianity. The above scriptures have already been fulfilled in 70AD when Jerusalem and the temple was destroyed. 


 Be not afraid the Kingdom is expanding and that is the most important news we need to hear.

3 Comments on “THE BLOOD MOON PROPHECY ERROR”

  1. Interesting. Read imilar thoughts regarding 70AD in Raptureless. I am not fully convinced. The implications for the church are scary… how can so many renowned men of God be wrong?

  2. If you consider "renowned men of God' over history, and not just those in the United States in recent years, the majority view was amillenialism. From very early times, there were disagreements and variations in understanding of eschatology, and most didn't consider it a major point of orthodoxy or a problem.

  3. Are we to believe to believe that renowned men of God can't be wrong. The 2 people in question believe in dual theology, that is operating 2 covenants. One with Israel and one with the church. Once the foundation is wrong there everything built will also follow. This does not pose scary implications for the church but presents to us the truth of the advancing kingdom of God will herald the glory of God over the earth. Once you see that endtimes that the disciples were living in was about the end of the Mosaic age then everything will fall into place.
