The Blood Moon Theory

Another blow-hard, end of days minister has set himself up for failure once again.


Texas pastor John Hagee believes God is sending mankind a message. Hagee contends that these messages are coming through tetrads, a rare series of four total lunar eclipses that occur over two year periods. These blood moons are named for the reddish color that results when the Earth comes between the sun and moon. The Texas pastor believes these are tied to major events involving the state of Israel.

Hagee said that there would “not be anymore four blood moons in the future” that fall on these holidays, so he says the current tetrad could indicate the start of some major, earth shattering events. He uses two scriptures to prove his point, Joel 2:20-21 and Luke 21:25-28 while ignoring Matthew 24:2. It seems Hagee has something in common with the ACOG’s.

Dr. Danny Faulkner, an astronomer with Answers in Genesis, also noted that there are some limitations concerning where these blood moons are visible from during the 2014-2015 season.

“There also is a question of from what portion of the earth one ought to view these eclipses for them to constitute a sign,” he wrote. “One might think that Jerusalem would be a key site, but the first three total lunar eclipses in 2014–2015 won’t be visible from there, and only the beginning of the final eclipse will be. One must ask whether a sign that few people notice is much of a sign.”
