mySA: “SAN ANTONIO — 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.
“What is the prophetic significance? Is this the end of the age?” Hagee, 73, asked his flock during a sermon near the time he released the book.”
Opinion: I am convinced that one of Satan’s most effective weapons against Bible prophecy is to make fools out of so-called prophecy gurus when they set dates for the rapture/second Advent.
Harold Camping was the most recent ‘date-setter’ and, according to Bible prophecy, false prophets (Matthew 24:4-5) will increase as the end of the age approaches.
So, what exactly can we expect to see between now and October 2015? NASA says we will see a Tetrad of Blood Moons occurring on Passover and Sukkot this year and next.
But… let’s be careful about predicting exact timing of events. The prophet Joel 2:30-32 and repeated in Acts 2:19-20 teaches that the blood moon is prophesied to herald the Day of the Lord (the 7 year tribulation period).
Two blood moons occurred at the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD and Tetrad’s (4 blood moons) occurred in 1493 (1492 Edict of expulsion from Spain), 1949-50 (Israel’s rebirth, 1948), and 1967-68 (6 day war).
The important distinction then is that blood moons occur at or around the time of events affecting Israel where as the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18), is a Christian event and could take place at any time.
The prophecy affecting Israel that seems to be on the front burner at this juncture, however, is the war of Psalm 83:1-8.
Our job is to watch and ”warn the people” Ezekiel 33:1-6.
