its another sign of the end of the world

Well I would not expect it from Pastor John Hagee... but maybe I should have... The good pastor has a book out in which he talks about four blood moons and the implication is that they would cause events in Israel that would EVENTUALLY lead to the end of the world.

Well, one has to be careful that one does not predict the end of the world or one may look foolish if it does not come to past. lol! To be fair to the pastor, when asked if the Tetrad blood moons heralded the end of the earth he said NO! He says that whatever comes about from Tetrad is specific to Israel.

Here is an  edited article from CBN News about the issue:
SAN ANTONIO -- The Book of Genesis says God uses the sun, moon, and stars for signs and seasons. Examples can be found throughout the Bible.Think of how a star led the wise men to Jesus or how the sun stood still as Joshua led Israel to victory over its enemies. According to Pastor John Hagee, God is getting ready to speak this way once again.

"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.

In his latest book, Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change, Hagee lays out what he calls celestial signals. He describes how a series of blood moons in 2014 and 2015 will have great significance for Israel. Although single blood moons happen fairly regularly, four appearing so closely together is extremely rare. 
So what exactly is a blood moon and what is the biblical significance? "A blood moon is when the Earth comes between the sun and the moon," Hagee explained. "And the sun is shining through the atmosphere of the Earth and casts up on the moon a red shadow. And so the moon appears to be red."
Such moons appear several times in scripture. In the book of Joel, God says there will be "wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire…the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." In Acts, the Apostle Peter repeats that verse from Joel. And the book of Revelation says that during the Great Tribulation, "the moon will become like blood."
Blood moons are set to appear in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in September 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot. The timing is the same for 2015 -- a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.
Well there are some problems with John Hagees predictions: The blood moons that are carded for the Jewish festivals would not be visible in Israel.

And as the frequency of  blood moons, well check this out. Four blood moons in a row is called a TETRAD. NASA has advised that there are six Tetrads this century. There were several last century and they occur regularly throughout history. History continued to have great things happen with or without the Tetrad blood moons....  so... you know... I won't be buying your book pastor Haggee, or listen to the prophets of doom.
