Blood Moon: Sign of the Apocalypse – Dreams of Armageddon

Blood Moon: Sign of the Apocalypse – Dreams of Armageddon October 8, 2014

Waiting for Jesus: Many Christians believe the recent and rare celestial event known as a “blood moon” is a sign that the End Times are upon us and the return of Christ is near.

Wednesday’s blood moon was the second of four complete lunar eclipses known as a tetrad. The blood moons are occurring in six month intervals: The first blood moon occurred on April 15, and the next two will be on April 4 and September 28 of next year.

The eclipses are often referred to as “blood moons” because as sunlight shines on the moon through the Earth’s atmosphere, it gives the moon a red color.

A blood moon occurs when the Earth spins between the sun and the moon. When the Earth aligns with the sun and casts a shadow on the moon, it creates the effect known as a lunar eclipse, where the moon gets darker as the shadow passes; as this happens, the color of the moon changes to a dark rusty red color, hence the name “blood moon.”

Many Christians believe the blood moon is a ‘sign’ from God and fulfills ancient prophecy foretold in the Bible. Christians often reference the following passage when connecting the “ancient prophecy foretold in the Bible” with the blood moon:

“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.” – Acts 2:19-20

According to Christian leader John Hagee, and others, the blood moon signifies the soon to come apocalypse. Hagee, pastor of Texas’ Cornerstone Church, has written a book on the phenomenon titled Blood Moons: Something is About to Change.

Hagee has predicted that the four eclipses are signaling a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”

Hagee and others see the tetrad as particularly meaningful for Israel because previous tetrads in 1492, 1948 and 1967, coincided with such events as the expulsion of Jews from Spain at the end of the Inquisition, statehood for Israel, and the Six-Day War.

The first two blood moons coincided with the Jewish holidays of Passover and the Feast of Tabernacle.

During a recent sermon Hagee asked “Is this the end of the age? What is the prophetic significance of the four blood moons? ” Hagee went on to explain “I believe that the heavens are God’s billboard, that he has been sending signals to planet Earth. … God is literally screaming at the world, ‘I’m coming soon.’”
