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.

While I agree these videos / books can be “over the top” because they tend to sidetrack people away from the core message), they do serve a purpose in that they prompt his followers to SEEK OUT what God has said about the end-times. Additionally, if these books / videos cause just one person who has never heard of the saving grace of Jesus to learn more about Him, they are worthwhile. Also, let’s not forget – the cosmic / mathematical views in the Bible are there for a reason. While not spiritually edifying in and of themselves, they are nonetheless very important messages from God as harbingers of things to come. Bottom-line, he wants his followers to be alert and ready.
Jesus himself told us many times to “watch” the signs, therefore it edifies us to do so. See Mark 13:28 – 28″Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. 29″Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door.…
Jesus told us that no man knows the day or hour – but that does not mean we are to be ignorant of the “season” in which we are living – see Matthew 24:42 43 where was Jesus was describing being ready for the end –
42″Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43″But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.…”
In another verse where we are told by Jesus to “watch” and “be ready” and to make certain our lamps are “trimmed with oil”: – Matthew 25:1-13
I believe that all of this speaks to God-given signs, which are not meant to frighten us, but meant to motivate us to assess / / prepare / maintain our spiritual readiness at all times..
Well said, Mary Anne! Perhaps those who are the most upset over the Four Blood Moons are the least prepared for Yeshua’s return.
Ok, folks, I suggest we finish up this conversation. Blessings, Dr. Eli
I am a little amazing most people always think that these prophecies had to be declared from astronomic and time-arithmetic facts. When He wants The Almighty God can cause these phenomena at any time by a direct supernatural intervention. We have to take into account this possibility also.
The Bible’s descriptions of what will happen as this age comes to a close (and the Messianic age is ushered in) is very important to us indeed – God wants his followers to “be very much aware” so we REMAIN IN GODLINESS through the difficult and tumultuous times ahead. The quote listed in my previous post from 2 Peter 3:10 -13 echoes this – “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all Holy Conversation and Godliness. Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.”
Many books / verses (too numerous to list) in the Bible address the cosmic / celestial events which will be prevalent in the “season” of his coming. To name a few: Isaiah 13:10 – “For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light.” Jesus himself reiterated this in Mark 13:24 – “But in those days, after that tribulation, THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, 25 AND THE STARS WILL BE FALLING from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.…
“When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light.”
“Before them the earth shakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon are darkened, and the stars no longer shine.”
I believe that if our Lord Jesus (and the God-filled prophets before Him) very graphically detailed these events / signs in the heavens – then it behooves to maintain an awareness of them as we abide, without fear, in Jesus’ power and love.
When I read Matt 24:6-8, I take it to mean that so many things will happen and they don’t mean anything as far as “when” the end of the world comes, or the coming of Christ. Shouldn’t we suppose that he said this so we would not follow after many kinds of troublesome signs and such, but rather remember the importance of the gospel and standing as we ought to stand?
