The Blood Moon Theory (a Critical Video)

The Blood Moon Theory has been officially popularized. “Oy Vey!” as we some times say in Yiddish.

I’ve been hearing this non-sense (the theory itself) for a while now and thought that you should watch this video for some basic information since it is amazing how people can uncritically accept almost anything providing it has nice pictures and Christian TV with powerful (usually unchallenged) personalities behind them.

Disclaimer: I do not know the author of this video (that also criticizes that theory) personally, nor can I vouch for other things he may say someplace else, but I think you should watch this video, because to me things are rather clear – the theory is a complete nonsense.

    Dear Susan,

    There is no humility in saying that a theory based on wild interpretive principles could actually be right! :-). If you are saying that I could be wrong about anything I say. Sure. Am I willing to admit it? Yes of course. I think this is true absolutely about everyone. But the fact I, you, Mark or anyone else can be right, wrong, or partially right or partially wrong, does not mean that we should have no opinion about it.

    The amount of money, attention and energy spent on this is immorally wasted. We have real problems in our world. Children to be fed, sick to be healled, etc.

    The fact that Mark Biltz (I am not sure if spelling is right) has deepened your understanding of the Word of God in other areas, I have no reason to doubt at all. Other areas could often have nothing to do with others. So I am not at all critical of anything else, only of the wild interpretive practices of some Christians leaders.

    I WAS NOT ABLE TO VIEW THE VIDEO OF THE BLOOD MOON BECAUSE IT COULD NOT BE OPENED. WHAT IS THE THEORY BEHIND IT?

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Michael, hi. Look for this on youtube directly some times there country internet restrictions.

  3. Esther

    Shalom Dr. Eli,
    Thank you for this post. I would love to hear more about your comments on this film/piece of news since it’s getting lots of attention on the Internet, and even some houses of prayers/churches in my country are using it to tell Christians to be prepared for something that may happen (to Israel or nations) soon these two years.

    Thank you.

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      I think the theory is incredibly misguided. There is nothing here that is truthful. It is another hype like Y2K was. Remember? Everyone went crazy. What happened nothing? What is important is that all Christians in the world should be ready to help Israel! This is something that independent from this theory. Christian commitment to assisting the Jewish people has nothing to do with this craziness. Christians should be always willing to do that which is right!

    Shalom Dr. Eli, Toda for the information on the Blood Moons. I have been wondering about them since I heard and asked Eli Dehan about them and he refered to you but I never got to asking. I’m so glad you use all the scriptures throughout the Bible to answer as it makes it more clear.

      It is very difficult when you are on a learning land to tell the difference when it is presented so well pictures, music, marketing as a whole of this thing is unreal!

  5. Sylvia Wackenier

    Dear Dr.Eli,
    I have seen the video. To my opinion it can be deceptive. The physical world (visible to us ) , I think is incomprehensible for/too us. We can have only a glimpse of it through scripture. When I read a book or article I read allways two. On my left the Bible and the book/article.
    Especially now we need good teachers focust on a world with God instead ……..

    Thank you Dr. Eli

    Kind regards. ps:I hope my English is readable.

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      It is. Thank you, Sylvia.

    Interesting. The proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the eating. The accuracy of a prophecy can only be guaranteed in its fulfillment. I have heard other negative comments by a well respected Bible teacher with a prophetic ministry and first heard of this prophecy from a highly regarded teacher who has few major prophecies all of which have proved to be accurate. We have to test, as instructed in Scripture and in the next few weeks we shall know. Certainly we are in the last days when we can expect anything to happen and God is moving things rapidly towards the glorious return of Yeshua HaMashiach. HALLELUJAH!

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Yes, but I want to remind everyone that “the last days” has began 2000 years ago. This is a Biblical term and once we see how it is used it DOES NOT refer to the last months or years before Christ return, but all the time UNTIL Christs return. Christians MUST always be prepared to assist the Jewish people and to save them if needed. THIS has nothing to do with any craziness and hype of this theory. We can’t we learn our lessons from y2K and other projections like this?!

      1. Ruth Harvey

        Yes that is very true Dr Eli. There are a number of references in the epistles to the return of Jesus and the end times – they looked as we do however, based on Jesus teaching in Matthew 24 those things are now very visible and Romans 1 warns us about denying the creator. Look what we have now – it’s all there, the days of Noah. However, we Gentile believers must stand with Israel and pray for them, especially for their salvation through their Messiah and for the raising up of those young people who will fulfill God’s purpose for the nation by taking the gospel to all the nations. And there is a work for us to do while we have the times of the Gentiles still. Regarding the red moons – I think there is confusion that has arisen due to the blood red moon of Joel. That is for the great and terrible day of the Lord which is not yet upon us. Maybe we should think more of the signs in the sky? Surely we are in God’s warning time – I think often of Pharaoh. Look at the US and British weather patterns this winter. Look at our attitude to Israel. May this be God warning us of His judgement if we don’t repent?
        Sorry, going on but it’s good to chew these things over.

        1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

          Ruth, thank you for your comment.

  7. Deborah G.

    Excellently done. Presented carefully yet critically.

  8. Paul Herman

    This attempt to refute the Four Blood Moon Theory is a straw man argument. Just because all four signs are not together in past Lunar Tetrads, therefore this Tetrad is not prophetically significant. If all four signs were together in the past, then the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord would have already happened! And it has not.
    Personally I believe that something significant will happen by Sukkot in 2015, based other prophetic indicators. I believe that lunar and solar eclipses have a prophetic significance for us as signs to us. “Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and seasons and for days and years… (Gen 1:14).”

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Paul, thank you for sharing your feedback. As you know I strongly disagree with what you think, but I want to express my personal appreciation for you personally and for many other Christians that think the way you do. I distinguish what I believe to be an interpretive mistake (which I think it truly is) from what is obviously a real heart for the God of Israel that is on fire for Him and his ancient people. For the later I am grateful. About “something significant that will take place on Sukkot 2015”. I can assure you that there 50% chance that something like this will indeed happen BUT NOT because of the Blood moon theory but because Israel is small country with a LOT of active people doing A LOT of things always in the midst of media attention. So, what I am saying significant things happen here every other months!

  9. Janis Moller

    Dr Eli, yes this is a beautiful video…wow! But you see, I wonder if we perhaps have to relate these upcoming tetrads to the prophecies unfolding in the news today. It is the time of the End and we cannot ignore that. And then, we also know that the Lord gives us a clue but not the total answer…He leaves it up to us to be ready. Now if this would occur on any other dates..or a time, then of course I would also have predicted that this prophecy of them is false.
    But I would rather say…let us be ready for if this is the time of the wars (blood moon sign) and the time of the fullness of the Gentiles…then it could also well be the time of the end just before the false peace treaty will be signed for 7 years, ….and the time of the Tribulation will start when Israel will build their 3rd temple and then after 3.5 years, the Anti Christ will stop the daily sacrifices, going into the temple to say that he is God….then the time of the mark of the Beast will start, and shortly thereafter the war of Armageddon. We also know that we are in the time of Noah..the wickedness cannot become much worse..for then there will be no human being left on the earth alive…Islam is busy pushing for their Mahdi (anti Christ ) to come to power from the revived Ottoman Empire ..it will come into existence soon. When we put the prophecies of the Holy Scriptures together with the events happening in the world…the persecution of the Jews and the Christians, and the boycott of Israel appearing right now..to increase still….then is this not perhaps the End sign telling us the it might be the beginning of the End?

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Are we in the end? NO ONE knows! Could Jesus come tomorrow or today? YES!!!!! Could he come 1000 years from now? Yes!!!!! A million????? Don’t kill me for it, but YES!!!!! We do not know when he is coming back. We must (as you rightly say be always ready).

  10. Michelle

    Thanks for sharing this, Dr. Eli. I have family members and friends at church who have the book, but every time I considered reading it, my spirit would react with a “no, not going there.” Now I’m glad I didn’t read it. I suspected it was not as Hagee was trying to paint it.

    Shalom to you!

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      There is absolutely nothing wrong with reading that book. This is not a Spanish inquisition, you know :-). But the theory itself sounds like it is based on principles that are inadequate.

      1. Michelle

        Oh, I agree! My apologies if I sounded judgmental. No inquisition in my thinking! 🙂

        1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

          🙂 did not mean to imply that :-).
