John Hagee preached a sermon about all that blood moon bullshit he’s pushing (and apparently stole from Mark Blitz). He declares that the blood moons are a warning from God of a great cataclysm and perhaps the “end of the age,” i.e. the end times.
“Is this the end of the age?” Hagee asked during a recent sermon, before quoting Acts 2:19-20: And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”
“I believe that the heavens are God’s billboard, that he has been sending signals to planet Earth,” he explained. “God is literally screaming at the world, ‘I’m coming soon.'”
Hagee predicted that the four eclipses were signaling a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”
“God sends plant Earth a signal that something big is about to happen! He’s controlling the Sun and the moon right now to send our generation a signal, but the question is, are we getting it?”
God is controlling the sun and the moon? Then why are the things that are happening so in line with the laws of physics and celestial mechanics that we have predicted their occurrence down to the minute for decades? Isn’t it incredible how God’s actions don’t deviate at all from what our scientific models have predicted perfectly for a very long time? And since the sun “turns to darkness” quite regularly and predictably, why is this eclipse suddenly a message from God?
And of course,the moon is not “turning to blood,” the light from the eclipse looks reddish as it comes through earth’s atmosphere. That’s it. No big mystery to explain, only an opportunity for a con man like Hagee to sell this ignorant twaddle to his credulous followers.
