Are you prepared for the blood moon coming on the fourth of April 2015? According to American pastor John Hagee, you had better get your religious beliefs sorted before this date as he predicts this blood moon coming is extremely special
“There’s a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way. I believe 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.”
Hagee, who has authored a book on this topic entitled, Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change (which is currently ranked #295 in Books and #2 in the religious category of “prophecies” on Amazon.com), is insisting the blood moon coming could signify the second coming of Christ. He also suggests it could bring about change in the Middle East, with an event occurring in Israel that will have worldwide significance.
But what makes the blood moon coming this April more special than all the others? Well, it is the third total lunar eclipse to occur out of four in a 12-month period. Also, considering this one falls between two significant religious events — the death of Jesus Christ on Good Friday and his subsequent resurrection on Easter Sunday is the key believing the end times are near. The final blood moon in what is known as a tetrad will occur on September 28, 2015. As previously reported in the Inquisitr, the first two blood moons occurred on April 15, and October 8, 2014. The current event will be seen over Asia, Australia, and North America — but, ironically, not the Holy Land.
But it not only Christians who believe the blood moon coming is a sign. According to Jewish traditions, while a solar eclipse is a sign to everyone, a lunar eclipse is geared specifically towards the Jewish faith.
But is the blood moon coming really something we should worry about? According to News.com.au, while Hagee has said this tetrade event is rare, he has neglected to add that this event is rare only when occurring over Easter. Once you count all of the blood moons occurring in this manner, it turns out 62 tetrads have presented over the last 2,000 years. So the blood moon coming turns out to be not as rare as Pastor Hagee would like us to believe.
What do you think — religious sign or just another blood moon coming? For those of you planning to watch the blood moon event, there is no need to take specific precautions like you do with a solar eclipse as the blood moon eclipse can be viewed with the naked eye. The red tint of the blood moon is actually a result of the Earth covering the moon. The blood moon will be visible from 3:16 a.m. PDT and will only occur for around nine to 12 minutes.
