There is a lot of talking about the soon coming tetrad (four in a row) of blood moons (total eclipses) in 2014 and 2015. Fox News even interviewed Hagee about it in 2013 and, not surprising, Hagee has had a book about it on the market making lots of money for several years now.
What is this all about?
When the moon is in total eclipse behind earth, the refraction of light around the earth causes the moon to look red and people call this a blood moon. For four of these eclipses to happen in a row (not separated by partial eclipses) it is somewhat rare and is called a tetrad. But for all four of these blood moons take place on Jewish high holy days, is extremely rare.
Please note that God said that He put the sun, the stars and the moon in the sky for signs to signal man about key events. For there to be a tetrad with all four blood moons on Jewish high holy days is not an accident or coincidence and defies mathematic probabilities. It should be obvious to anyone but an ardent God hater that God does this for a reason.
Before now, there have only been three such tetrads in the last 500 years. The first was in 1493 and 1494 during the expulsion of Jews from Spain and the voyages of Christopher Columbus. Hagee states that during this tetrad, Spanish Jews paid Chris a bunch of money to find them a safe place to live and Hagee makes it sound like Chris found the US (New England) and these Spanish Jews settled and founded the US, which is pure historic bull crap.
If you know your American history, you know that it was more than 100 years from the time Chris sailed from Spain in 1492 until the first European settlers arrived in the current continental US north of Florida and east of the Mississippi River making it impossible for those Spanish Jews to have settled the New England area, which was the starting point of the US. For several decades after Chris first sailed west, the only places any Spanish explorers or settlers could have settled would have been in the Caribbean Islands and, maybe, parts of Mexico and Central America.
Was this tetrad a sign of the expulsion of Jews from Spain and Christopher Columbus finding the West?
Certainly, but Hagee needs to get the rest of his story right, these persecuted Spanish Jews did not settle or play any part in founding the US.
The second tetrad was in 1949 and 1950 following the rebirth of the State of Israel. That one should be pretty obvious what God was pointing out.
The third tetrad was in 1967 and 1968 following the Israeli 1967 Six Day War in which Israel regained control of the Temple Mount. That one should also be obvious what God was pointing out.
This coming next tetrad during 2014 and 2015 will take place on April 15, 2014, Passover, October 8, 2014, Sukkot, April 4, 2015, Passover, and September 28, 2015, Sukkot. It is very clear this is a sign from God that something very significant is about to happen in relation to Israel.
Hagee states that he believes that there are no prophesies which must be fulfilled before the coming Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation, which causes him to believe this tetrad is a sign of the coming Rapture and beginning of the Tribulation. The primary reason why Hagee believes there are no prophesies which must be fulfilled before the Rapture and the Tribulation can begin is because Hagee has clearly stated he believes that the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is the same battle as the Battle of Armageddon and will happen at the end of the Tribulation.
I have proven all of this to be false because, if you pay attention to the details, the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 CANNOT be the same as the Battle of Armageddon because the details are significantly different and in conflict with each other. The Bible tells that the fulfillment of prophesy is in the details of the prophesy. The Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 will clearly take place in the "Northern Hills of Israel", which is current Lebanon and Syria and the mortality rate will be 5 in 6 will die or 83.3% of the troops which stage to invade Israel will be killed. The battle field for the Battle of Armageddon is in the Valley of Meggido, which is more than 75 miles south of the battle field for the Battle of Ezekiel and the mortality rate for the Battle of Armageddon is clearly 100%. There is ABSOLUTELY no way these can be prophesies for the same battle because one of the prophesies would have to be wrong. Hagee ignores this because it destroys what he teaches.
The reason why these false prophets teach that the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and the Battle of Armageddon are the same battle is because the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 has not happened yet, cannot happen at any other time after the beginning of the Tribulation and must be fulfilled. These false prophets don't want the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 to be a prerequisite for the Rapture and the Tribulation so they ignore the details and lump the two battles together as one battle.
What does this matter?
By teaching that the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is the same battle as the Battle of Armageddon and that Jesus will return, it sets up Christians for a very terrible experience which will severely test their faith. Just imagine when the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 happens and Jesus doesn't return with several billion Christians faithfully believing Jesus must return. Every Christian who doesn't know better, will have their faith shaken to the core of their being, they will be severely traumatized, their world and entire faith system will have been destroyed and will implode in on them.
The Bible very clearly predicts this when it says that, in the end times, the people will say that Christians have been saying Jesus is coming for a very long time and He has not appeared. It tells us that the non-Christians will turn from Christianity, even some of the elite or saved will be temporarily turned away from God, and mock the remaining Christians. This will be extremely traumatic for those who don't know better, it will cause great confusion, and will cause the remaining Christians to be silenced, so it really does matter.
But God is permitting these false prophets to spread their lies so that when things don't turn out the way the false prophets are telling us, it will turn the poser Christians against God and to paganism, cleaning out the church and making it possible for us to rebuild the church. What posers are going to want to belong to a religion which is being publically mocked? It will also test the faith of the true Christians, increasing the strength of that faith, and will teach Christians to not ignore the details of prophesy.
What is going to happen?
In the near future, God is going to cause the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 to happen to clean house on our severely infiltrated churches, the pagans will flee our churches and the preachers who teach and prophesy for money will follow the money. Then, in 2025, just like God told me, the Rapture will happen and the Tribulation will begin, and, in 2032, just like God told me, we will have the Battle of Armageddon. I don't get paid to tell you the truth, I have to do it for free. :-) You know, like Elijah and Elisha did.
Interestingly, I did a little extra research and found that there will be another tetrad in 2032 and 2033. None of the blood moons will fall on a Biblical high holy day, for whatever that proves or doesn't prove. But don't you find it an interesting coincidence that there is going to be a tetrad for the coming Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and also for the coming Battle of Armageddon, just 17 years apart with no other tetrads between them?
Sorry, I don't believe in coincidences, I believe in God. There is a reason for this. Maybe God is trying to throw off the false prophets? Stick around and we will both find out.
Here is a little "Gideon's Fleece" to help you. If an army of nations, especially including Russia and the other nations listed in Ezekiel 38 and 39, sets up in Lebanon and Syria to invade Israel and God personally intervenes, destroying only 83.3% of the invading army with the rest dropping their weapons and fleeing the rapidly approaching Israeli Army, and Jesus doesn't come, it has to be the Battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39 and CANNOT be the Battle of Armageddon. If said army stages in the Valley of Meggido and Jesus returns, quickly wiping out the entire army, it is the Battle of Armageddon. Get the picture?
Obviously, it is necessary to....
