THE BLOOD RED MOONS ARE COMING

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon......

 The much touted about, shouted about, preached on, teached on Blood Red Moons are about to arrive.
Tuesday’s blood moon is part of a “tetrad,” a set of complete and consecutive lunar eclipses that will continue in roughly six-month intervals until October 2015.
Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2014/04/blood-moons-a-special-message-to-america/#9JL6cYsJ3C5lu0y3.99
They are to come in what are known as tetrads (sets of 4), 1 blood red moon at Passover this year, another on the feast of Tabernacles in October then another on Passover 2015 and Tabernacles the same year.

Author and Pastor Mark Biltz "discovered" the link to events in Jewish history.

According to Pastor Biltz there have been only 8 such tetrads in the last 2,000 years and the last 2 occurred when there was a war in the Middle East.

Or was there?

Let's see how these claims hold up against the pages of real history and indeed scripture.

Israel became a nation again in May 1948. The war with her Arab neighbours broke out almost immediately (July 1948 to March 1949) 

When did the blood red moon appear in 1949?
It took place in April 1949 a month AFTER the war finished!
 
A year after Israel became a nation.
 
Hardly an omen of things to come.

There was another during the feast of Tabernacles the same year. What happened? Nothing!

Remember Pastor Biltz and others including Pastor John Hagee tell us these are omens of major events. An omen is something that warns of something about to occur.

But, guys an omen doesn't come after the event but before as a warning. One Blogger wrote the following: 
 
Between 1493-1494, the Jews were expelled from Spain. This was also a blood moon tetrad.
 
Between 1949-1950, the Jews as Israel became a nation. This was also a blood moon tetrad.
 
Between 1967-1968, the Jews recaptured Jerusalem. This was also a blood moon tetrad.

Hold on a minute. Any American should know "In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue."

That date (1492) in Jewish history is the same year the Spanish King and Queen expelled all Jews from Spain NOT 1493 the year of the blood red moons.

Again the celestial event took place AFTER the historical event!

So our blogger seems to be manipulating the figures to fit the frame of a supposed supernatural event.

Notice also he says "Between 1949-1950, the Jews as Israel became a nation. This was also a blood moon tetrad."

Hold on, again. The Jews did NOT become a nation between 1949 and 1950. That wonderful act of God took place in 1948.
WRONG AGAIN!

And the blood red moon occurred 1 year later in 1949 after they became a nation and after the war had ended.

Some omen Pastors Biltz and Hagee!

So out of these 3 sets of tetrad blood red moons only 1 took place BEFORE a major historical event:  Passover 1967 just before the 6 day war.

Did you read that? Out of 12 blood red moons only 1 took place before a major historical event.

The 11 other supposed signs took place AFTER the historical event when nothing happened as a result of the tetrad! Also think about this: the Talmud says the signs in the moon are for Israel: the timing of feast days etc.

So how many of the coming dreaded blood moons are visible from Israel: Refiners Fire website was very helpful on this:
2014-2015 tetrad:
15 April 2014: Not visible from Israel
8 October 2014: Not visible from Israel
4 April 2015: Not visible from Israel
28 September 2015: Visible, but moon sets at sunrise during the eclipse - not likely to be "blood red" as the sky will brightening as the moon goes into totality as the moon sets.

Also in the past:
1967-1968 tetrad:
24 April 1967: Not visible from Israel
18 October 1967: Not visible from Israel
13 April 1968: Not visible from Israel
6 October 1968: Not visible from Israel

Also please note:

1949-1950 tetrad:
13 April 1949: Visible at beginning of eclipse which began at sunrise, moon set before totality, sky too bright as sun was rising.
7 October 1949: Visible from beginning of eclipse to totality, but then moon sets while still in total eclipse with sky too bright to see much of the totality.
2 April 1950: Was visible - the whole eclipse beginning to end.
26 September 1950: Not visible from Israel. Eclipse began near sunrise, so the moon was only in partial eclipse as it set, and the sky became too bright.

You see friends to be of even the slightest importance the whole eclipse must be visible from Israel. These were and are not!

One more point before I end the rant: the verses these guys use is also misleading to the extreme. Notice I placed the Luke 21: 25 verse at the top of this post. The verse often quoted by the proponents of this nonsense. But did you notice the deliberate misuse of the verse? In full it reads thus:  

Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luk 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

These guys partially quote the verse in order to give weight to their misleading garbage.

To have these words come to pass we must see events in the sun, moon, stars. People in great distress and the very powers of heaven shaken. Not just a partial fulfillment to suit a particular view or opportunity to sell millions of DVDs and books to the gullible. 

See how people can twist scripture to sell a book or DVD? I am not saying this is what Biltz or Hagee have done deliberately but surely they know how to quote scripture in full context......don't they?

But there is another final point here. In the above passage Jesus is sitting on the Mount of Olives. It is the same account as given from a different perspective in Mark 13 and Matthew 24.

But notice when Jesus says these signs take place......AFTER the Great Tribulation NOT BEFORE.
Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
Mark 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luke 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.                                                                                 Luke 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

See? These events take place after the tribulation as a sign of His return. They include not only Sun and Moon but Stars as well. But our "experts" tell us the signs we are about to see include only the sun and the moon, well the moon alone, really.

Someone has been selling us a bad deal. with false dates and omens that occur after the event and only hit the target 1 time out of 12!  Yet we are expected to get all excited about them and buy the DVDs and books without ever checking to see if what is being said has any validity at all.

Where are the Bereans of 2014?
Act 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
Act 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.


Be wise in these days dear friends. I believe major events are on the horizon and they may even coincide with the odd blood moon but as we have seen above the events have nothing to do with the tetrads. Sleep tight and secure in Christ not in fear and dread thanks to fake teachers who will one day give an account to the Master when he returns.

From Scientology to libertine cult Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO): How Peaches was obsessed with the occult and spiritual study
While Peaches Geldof appeared to have beaten her drug demons, her continuing fascination with the occult, and particularly a mysterious religious cult called OTO, worried her family.

Just three weeks ago Peaches, 25, tweeted a picture of bookshelves groaning with works by Aleister Crowley, the British founder of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO).

She also posted a photograph of Crowley's book, Magick - In Theory And Practice, praising him as a 'beautiful writer and thinker'.

Her interest in OTO ran alongside previous fascinations with the Scientology cult, and Judaism, the religion of her husband, Thomas Cohen.

Peaches also posted a photograph of this book on the occult by OTO leader, Aleister Crowley
Crowley, who died in 1947, founded the Thelema religion, whose central tenet was 'Do what thou wilt'
Aleister Crowley, who died in 1947, wrote books about the occult and called himself 'The Great Beast, 666'

Crowley, who styled himself as 'the Great Beast, 666' and was dubbed 'the wickedest man in the world', revelled in sadomasochistic sex rituals with men and women, and the use of hard drugs including opium, cocaine, heroin and mescalin.

Peaches, who had 'OTO' tattooed in a heart on her right arm, is said to have become interested in the occultist's religious theory during her short-lived marriage to musician Max Drummey when she was 19. 

At the same time, she also pursued an interest in Scientology after talking to actress Katie Holmes, then married to Scientologist Tom Cruise.

She was said to have visited Scientology centres in Los Angeles and New York, before losing interest in the cult.  More recently, Peaches, whose husband, Thomas Cohen is Jewish, developed an interest in Judaism.
 
While the marriage to Drummey failed, Peaches' interest in Crowley's teachings persisted, and she has previously urged her online followers to read his 'super interesting' books, an interest that worried her family.
Last year her father's girlfriend, actress Jeanne Marine, said of Peaches' interest in the cult: 'You don’t know if it’s something that will pass or if it’s longer than that. The thing is, young people, they change their minds a lot.'

She said neither she nor Bob Geldof knew anything about the cult, but said the fact that Peaches had tattooed its name onto her skin indicated that her interest in it might be more than a passing fad.
OTO was said to have been brought to Britain from Europe in the early 20th century by Crowley, an infamous occultist and drug addict.

The ominous history of the time period around April 19-20 - Bill Koenig

Note from Bill: The following is from the "Koenig's Eye View from the White House" April 5th news report. There has been one serious news story after another in the past few days. First, it was the beginning of Secretary of State John Kerry's push for Israeli-Palestinian talks; then the North Korean nuclear threat; a collapse of gold's value; the Boston Marathon bombings; heightened security in Washington, DC; letters sent to President Obama and Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) tested positive for ricin; the very heated gun debate on Capitol Hill and at the White House; Iran triples installations of centrifuges at Natanz and a major explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas two days before the 20th anniversary of the Waco/Branch Davidian raid by FBI/ATF of April 19, 1993.  The West's explosion size was due to a large amount of ammonium nitrate in storage – the highly explosive chemical compound used in the Murrah (Federal) Building bombing in Oklahoma City which occurred on April 19, 1995. President George W. Bush was working with Crown Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on a plan for a future Palestinian state 17 days prior to the 9-11-2001 terror events. This current "period of disruption" in the United States seems very similar to that time period. John Kerry has decided that he wants to use the 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative rather than the Quartet Road Map as the foundation for talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians. I will have more specifics on the similarities in this Friday's weekly news report. -------- Extensive list of major events that have happened on or around April 19-20: World wars, American wars, Israeli wars, births of Hitler and Mohammed, and many others … Previously, Eric Hadik (http://www.insiidetrack.com) shared with us the significance of the month of April and the incredible amount of events that have happened in that month. These are events that have impacted the United States, Israel and the Jewish people. Major wars began in the U.S. in this time frame. Major domestic terror events occurred on April 19 numerous times.  Mohammed and Hitler were born on the same day — April 20.  There have also been major news items about Iran in April from 2006 to 2012.  have added the dates and other material to Eric's work to further emphasize this incredible information. This information will help us better watch what is coming the rest of this year and into 2014 with so many significant cycles converging. The natural year The sun governs our seasons, which are measured by the solstices and equinoxes. By many accounts, the Natural Year begins with the vernal equinox on March 20/21. This has been true in agrarian (agriculture/ farming-based) societies for thousands of years. It has been true in civilizations that worshipped the Sun (and established their calendars accordingly). As such, it starts the clock on the 'opening range' of each Natural Year. Let me explain … If one were to begin a calendar on the vernal equinox (start of Spring), the first month of that year would end on April 19/20. It is when the northern half of the earth transitions from seasonal 'death' to 'life.' In the old days, it was also when 'kings went off to war.' (See the biblical account of when David chose not to go off.) Anyone that suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) could certainly attest to the psychological aspects of longer days and more sunlight when the shroud of depression lifts and the rays of hope come flooding back into their lives. But, let's apply this to the markets …  From a trading standpoint, the action in that first 30 days would represent a type of 'opening range' that would influence the trading of the rest of the Natural Year. This is similar to how I treat the first week — and month — of the calendar year, the first three trading days of each month and the first day of the week. Once that opening range (first 30 days) is complete, you have resistance and support for the entire period — both when the market is trading in that range AND once it has broken out of it. You also have an important gauge of trend for that year (if the market is trading above that range, it is in an uptrend on an intra-year basis, etc.). Emphasis on the natural year was more significant in W.D. Gann's time since the commodity futures markets were almost all agricultural. Mid-April was the time when 'carry-over crop stocks' were at their lowest and when planting conditions and expectations for the new 'year' — or growing season — were becoming apparent. But, it is not just trading that is impacted … This period — from March 20/21 to April 19/20 — marks a very important transition period,linked to various means of measuring time with physical (natural), celestial (astronomy), metaphysical (astrology) and supernatural (Jewish and Christian commemorations) implications. April 19/20 acts like a deadline for determining what to expect in the coming (natural) year. It is a time to watch each year for signs of 'change.' ——— Date of infamy for America — April 19 and the days around it This 'natural year opening range' has diverse — and seemingly contradictory — implications. As just explained, it is a time when much of nature comes back to life. Paradoxically, it is when man often incites war (and the end of many lives). Nowhere has this remained more constant than in the histories of America and Israel. I have explained this concept many times before, but it is also the single most requested compilation of analysis from readers. So, I will briefly recap it for the sake of context … In short, I have termed the date of April 19 (sometimes extending to the days surrounding it) as the 'date of infamy' for America. The following are just a few of the events that have occurred on this date and have impacted/governed America's destiny … beginning with our independence (and incorporating almost every major, decisive war in our history) … Start of Revolutionary War — April 19, 1775 Battle of San Jacinto/end of Texas Revolution — April 19-21, 1836 Start of Mexican-American War — April 25, 1846 Start of Civil War — April 12, 1861 Start of Spanish-American War — April 26, 1898 Franklin D. Roosevelt announces U.S. will leave gold standard — April 19, 1933 Bay of Pigs invasion failure — April 17-19, 1961 End of Vietnam War — April 30, 1975 Operation Praying Mantis was on April 18, 1988. Attack by U.S. naval forces in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf and the subsequent damage to an American warship. This battle was the largest of the five major U.S. surface engagements since the Second World War. ——— The April 19/20 date has pinpointed many events of great 'civil unrest' and/or domestic terrorism in the U.S. They include: ATF raid on Covenant of the Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) — April 19-21, 1985 (linked to the Oklahoma City bombing a decade later) Explosion on the USS Iowa (speculated to be an act of sabotage/suicide, but never proven) — April 19, 1989  Waco/Branch Davidian raid by FBI/ATF — April 19, 1993  Oklahoma City Bombing — April 19, 1995  Columbine High School massacre — April 20, 1999  Additional events:  Anti-Jewish riots break out in Palestine — April 19, 1936  U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test at Semipalitinsk, Eastern Kazakhstan, U.S.S.R. — April 19, 1985 Benedict XVI, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, becomes the 265th pope — April 19, 2005 The historical date of infamy for Israel and her enemies – April 20/21 This date has also had a dramatic impact on Israel and Jews. In the last 2,000 years, Jews have had many enemies and many antagonists; but three, in particular, stand out:  Birth of Rome/Roman Empire Islam/Mohammad Nazi Germany/Hitler  What do they have in common? They were all born on April 20/21.  The birth of Rome (by Romulus) is dated as April 21, 753 B.C.  The birth of Mohammad is dated as April 20, 571 A.D.  The birth of Adolph Hitler was April 20, 1889  Additional:  Israel faced the Great Arab Revolt of April 19, 1936  The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began April 19, 1943  The ascension of Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt on April 18, 1954. Nasser was Israel's lead antagonist for almost two decades. He was responsible for three wars with Israel from 1956–1970. He was also responsible for the first United Arab Republic — in 1958–1961, a concept that could reach a more cohesive realization in the coming years.  To say the least, this has been a very significant period of time for centuries. ------------- For biblically relevant news and commentary subscribe to "Koenig's Eye View from the White House."

Investigators reveal MH370 co-pilot tried to make a call from his mobile phone after the aircraft 'vanished' but 'was abruptly cut off' as U.S. deny reports the plane landed at their remote military base
The co-pilot of missing flight MH370 made a call from his mobile phone while the aircraft flew low over the west coast of Malaysia, it was revealed today as the U.S. denied reports the plane landed at a military base on the remote island of Diego Garcia.
Investigators have learned that the call was made from Fariq Abdul Hamid's mobile phone as the Boeing 777 flew low near the island of Penang, on the north of Malaysia's west coast.
The New Straits Times reported the aircraft, with 239 people on board, was flying low enough for the nearest telecommunications tower to pick up Fariq's signal.
The call ended abrupty, however it has been learned that contact was definitely established with a telecommunications sub-station in Penang state.
The paper said it had been unable to ascertain who Fariq was trying to call 'as sources chose not to divulge details of the investigation.'
It added: 'The telco's (telecommunications company's) tower established the call that he was trying to make.
'On why the call was cut off, it was likely because the aircraft was fast moving away from the tower and had not come under the coverage of the next one,' the paper said, quoting 'sources'.
The paper added that it had also been established that Fariq's last communication was through the WhatsApp Messenger app and that it had been made at about 11.30pm on March 7, shortly before he boarded the aircraft for the six-hour flight to Beijing.
The New Straits Times said it had been told checks on Fariq's phone history showed that the last person he spoke to was 'one of his regular contacts - 'a number that frequently appears on his outgoing phone logs'.
That last call, said the paper, was made no more than two hours before the flight took off 12.41am on March 8 from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Separate sources told the paper that checks on Fariq's phone showed that connection to the phone when he made that last call before he boarded the plane had been 'detached'.
'This is usually the result of the phone being switched off.
'At one point, however, when the airplane was airborne, between waypoint Igari and the spot near Penang (just before the aircraft went missing from radar), the line was "reattached".'  
Search area: This image released by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority shows the current planned search area along the old ones in the Indian Ocean, West of Australia, for the wreckage of flight MH370

The paper said that a reattachment does not necessarily meant that a call was made. It could also be the result of the phone being switched on again.
The revelation came as the U.S. denied claims the missing flight had landed at its military base on the remote island of Diego Garcia.
There had been rumours that the jetliner could have headed for the small coral atoll in the Indian Ocean after it veered off course while travelling between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Beijing, China on March 8.
However, a spokesman for the U.S. embassy in the Malaysian capital denied the allegation.

Victory for Nevada's last rancher! Federal agents release cattle and back down from 'range-war' after armed protestors rally to support rancher 'kicked off land his family has held since 1870'

Federal officials ended a stand-off with hundreds of armed protesters in the Nevada desert on Saturday, calling off the government's roundup of cattle it said were illegally grazing on federal land and giving about 300 animals back to the rancher who owned them.
The dispute less than 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas between rancher Cliven Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management had simmered for days.
Bundy had stopped paying fees for grazing his cattle on the government land and officials said he had ignored court orders.

Anti-government groups, right-wing politicians and gun-rights activists camped around Bundy's ranch to support him, in a standoff that tapped into long-simmering anger in Nevada and other Western states, where vast tracts of land are owned and governed by federal agencies.
The bureau had called in a team of armed rangers to Nevada to seize the 1,000 head of cattle on Saturday but backed down in the interests of safety.
‘Based on information about conditions on the ground and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public,’ the bureau's director, Neil Kornze, said in a statement.
The protesters, who at the height of the standoff numbered about 1,000, met the news with applause. Then they quickly advanced on the metal pens where the cattle confiscated earlier in the week were being held.
After consultations with the rancher's family, the bureau decided to release the cattle it had rounded up, and the crowd began to disperse.
‘This is what I prayed for,’ said Margaret Houston, one of Bundy's sisters. ‘We are so proud of the American people for being here with us and standing with us.’

A number of Bundy's supporters, who included militia members from California, Idaho and other states, dressed in camouflage and carried rifles and sidearms. During the stand-off, some chanted ‘open that gate’ and ‘free the people.’
A man who identified himself as Scott, 43, said he had traveled from Idaho along with two fellow militia members to support Bundy.
‘If we don't show up everywhere, there is no reason to show up anywhere,’ said the man, dressed in camouflage pants and a black flak jacket crouched behind a concrete highway barrier, holding an AR-15 rifle. ‘I'm ready to pull the trigger if fired upon,’ Scott said.

(VIDEO) Federal Agents Tasering Protesters, Reports of Killing Cattle in Bunkerville

Source: 21st Century Wire

A convoy of US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) vehicles with armed federal agents faced-off with the public at their protest camp near Exit 112, off of Riverside Road in Bunkerville, Nevada.

The scene which took place this afternoon at 2pm PST, went violent after a detachment of federal agents pulled over and began threatening protesters and residents, before assaulting at least one woman and panicking and tasering protesters (see video below).

Killing CattleA detachment of 12 federal vehicles and approximately 20 federal agents who were met by a band of residents and protesters parked along the shoulder of Riverside Road. Members of the public had asked the federal BLM to stop and answer questions regarding two vehicles in their convoy – a Backhoe digger and a dump truck, both of which are thought to be used by BLM forces to dispose of dead cattle.

It has been conformed by ranchers and observers that the BLM and federal “contract’ cowboy” agents’ aggressive practices of rustling herds and then taking the stolen the livestock for sale at auction in Utah. Witnesses have seen federal agent using multiple helicopters (image, below) forcing cattle to removal zones, sometimes uphill in 90F heat – a practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals and causing them to die unnecessarily. It is believed that BLM agents are then scooping up the dead animals with Backhoe diggers, burying them right there in the desert, or disposing of them off site.

In addition, one tragic result which has probably not been taken into account by BLM rustlers is the fact, reported by onlookers, that mothering cows who are being subject to these deadly federal tactics have been forced to leave their calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later backtrack to retrieve their young) putting them at risk of death as well.

This shocking video was shot only a few hours ago, where following an assault on one 57 year old mother was violently thrown to the pavement by federal agents, BLM agents panicked and began threatening, and then tasering male and female protesters, and setting dogs on them.
