Megachurch pastor, televangelist and author John Hagee has warned of a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.” He believes that the series of lunar eclipses that will occur between now and then are predictive of major catastrophic historical events. The first “blood moon” will make its appearance on April 15. “There’s a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way,” Hagee told CBN earlier this year. “I believe that in these next two years we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world,” he predicted.

That’s a rather unsettling prediction, one that is causing a lot of buzz among Christians and non-Christians alike.

What is a blood moon and should you be worried? Here are some facts:

Well, good. Theological speculations aside, a prediction that something earth-shaking will happen in an 18 month span is about as informative as the prediction that there will be snow in North America during the same time.

"Megachurch pastor, televangelist and author John Hagee has warned of a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015.”

"And many self-proclaimed prophets since that time have looked foolish when their predictions turned out to be wrong. "



Hagee has looked foolish for a long time now. I'm looking forward to November 2015, when [some of] his followers will finally realize that.


That people like Hagee, and worse, have mega-churches and mega-millions says a lot about the western church, and what it says is not good.

Yeah, yeah, we did this 6 months ago, didn't we? All my objections from then are still true.

1. If eclipses are "signs from God", then "free will" is a farce. You listed the tetrads for the last 2000 years; you can easily list them for the NEXT 2000 years, because they are, literally, as predictable as the sunrise. (And I am correctly using the word "literally".) Do we ALREADY KNOW that there will be "earth-shaking" portents in 2032-33, 2043-44, 2050-51, 2061-62, 2071-73 and 2090-91? And could you say that "earth-shaking" events will NOT happen in the intervening years?

2. The only really notable thing about these eclipses is that these are all AMERICAN eclipses. None will be visible from Israel, or anyplace else in Europe, western Asia, or Africa.

Of course, the bloodshed and craziness didn't have to wait for the eclipse to happen...

Alas, Dr. Tony Phillips of NASA predicts that there will not be a "blood moon", but more of a "rusty moon"; they don't think there is enough volcanic ash suspended in the upper atmosphere to really turn the Moon red.

So like . . .
Were these going to happen?
If so, how exactly can they be a sign?
That's rather like claiming any particular eclipse is a sign.
Now if there weren't going to be eclipses at those particular times and suddenly there were, THAT would be a sign.
But something any basic astronomer could have told you was going to happen 50, 100, or 500 years ago, combined with someone else cross-referencing some calendars hardly qualifies.

I think the best description of it I've seen is that it's a sign, but think about the signs you see when you drive. They could be right there at the turn you need or as far as three or four miles out. So, which kind of sign might this be? There's no way to know for sure. It's just one more of a growing body of things that add to the verse that says, "When you see all this, look up ..."
