The Blood Moon Distraction

ray-gano-medOn April 14th around Apr 14 at 11:59 PM MTN time the first so called “blood moon” will take place.

What many Christians do not realize is that there is only one “blood moon” and it is the eclipse that takes place in October, according to most pagan religions.

Here is what The Pagan’s Path says…

The Red Blood Moon

According to NASA and “folklore, October’s full moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon” or sometimes the “Blood Moon.” It gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. You can picture them: silent figures padding through the forest, the moon overhead, pale as a corpse, its cold light betraying the creatures of the wood.”

There are many different correspondence tables for Moon Names. But most do agree on the alias “Blood Moon” during the three months of fall when hunting and harvesting take place.

Today the Blood Moon is typically associated with the first full moon nearest the Autumn Equinox, for us in the Northern Hemisphere that occurs in October. But it can occur as early as September (The Fruit Moon), and as late as November (The Beaver Moon) as the Earth tilts back away from the sun. Consequently these same affects can be seen in the Southern Hemisphere on the opposite side of the year, corresponding to the full moons of March, April and May.

Observances During The Blood Moon:

During the autumn months, The Blood Moon represents abundance, hunting, gathering and preparing for the cold winter months. It’s a time to honor the Harvest and Hunting Gods/Goddesses. Many festivals take place during this time to give thanks and appreciation for the bounty and stockpiles of plenty gathered by a clan or tribe. The Feast of the Hunter’s Moon is a long standing practice in Indiana where a living Native American history re-enactment takes place. But similar events can be found around the world and with varying names.

From a magical point of view, the same concepts can be enacted today for these full moons rituals. They can be used to bring abundance into your life in the form of finances, harvest, health, friendship and love. And to give thanks and honoring the blessings of the Harvest.

Observances During The Blood Moon Eclipse:

Since an eclipse is an extra special event, it has a special energy and observance. Especially when it’s a rare Blood Moon eclipse. These special occasions are used for honoring and celebrating life, or the blood flow of life. This energy of the moon can be used to energize fertility, abundance, or communicate with spirit.

So many Christians out there are basically observing and giving credit to a pagan event and they have no idea that they are even doing it.

But what is worse is that they are basically taking scripture COMPLETELY out of context so that they can wrap this pagan event in some form of Christianity.

drudge-blood-moon

The primary prophecy that people are pulling out of context is found in Joel 2

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.

On the day of Pentecost Peter quoted from Joel using the following…

Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

John the Revelator also speaks of the day of the Lord in Revelation 6

Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

NONE of these references are speaking about a lunar eclipse.

ALL of these verses are referring to a miraculous event / judgment from God that will darken the sun and make the moon blood red in color as a sign to the world that Christ’s 2nd coming is about to or has taken place.

Here is this same event being chronicled by the prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 13 : 9-11 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

And finally we read in Matthew 24 Christ’s own words regarding His Second Coming…

Matthew 24: 29-30 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: 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.

NOTE –many people attribute this verse to the rapture, but this too is a huge error. This is clearly Christ’s Second Coming where He comes and takes vengeance upon the nations that divided the land of Israel

Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and parted my land.

Christ’s primary reason for returning has nothing to do with the battle of Armageddon / Megiddo / Megiddon. It has everything to do with the nations dividing HIS LAND… the land of Israel.

Zechariah 12:1-11 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God.

6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.

7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.

8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon

All of this is the day of the Lord and this is the “short” version.

You want the LONG version, read Isaiah 10 – 23

NOTE – the destruction of Damascus is part of Christ’s Second/ Day of the Lord that clearly chronicled by Isaiah, of Christ taking out his vengeance upon the lands and nations that helped divide His land, Israel.

Isaiah 17 has NOTHING to do with all these middle east wars (Isaiah 17, Psalm 83 and Eze 38-39) that so many like to point to as a precursor to the rapture.

In fact there is no such thing as a precursor or some sort of benchmark that we can point to so that we can use to identify the timing of the rapture.

left behindYET, thanks to Tim LeHaye’s Left Behind series and movie, where this idea was primarily promoted, we now have a completely out of context fairy tale event that has become a strong doctrine of man and books like “Israelistine” have sold thousands promoting the fairy-tale.

Thank goodness that people like Tommy Ice and Mark Hitckock are finally coming out and debunking this futuristic fairy-tale.

The sad thing is that so many Christians are so ignorant of their bible’s, that when someone comes promoting pagan events (Blood Moons) and then has the gall to wrap in scripture taken completely out of context, of course they buy into it lock, stock and barrel.

What does Hosea 4:6 say? (Look it up)

But worse, and here is the point that I want to make in all of this. People, both Christians and heathen are distracted by it.

You know what is going to happen?

NOTHING.

With all this press that this is getting, how many people are going to be made to believe that some supernatural event is going to take place?

Rabbi Mark Blitz, the Hebrew Roots “pastor” and originator of this fabricated idea states that this will be the precursor of Christ’s Second Coming.

Like all the other date setters out there, this too will fail and more mud will be smeared upon Christ’s face by the heathens mocking Him.

“Oh Look at all those stupid Christians believing in their stories of some god who is coming back to destroy the world.”

Folks, when we stand on something like this and promote it in a positive manner and slapping “CHRISTIAN” on it. Whenever we do something like this, Christ look like the fool. But not only that, we are also destroying our own credibility and witness.

It is these sort of hyped up events that also cause people to have “itching ears.”

Here is what scripture warns us about…

2 Timothy 4:2-4 preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

This is prophecy coming to pass.

We are living in a time where people will not endure sound doctrine and heap upon themselves wolves in sheep’s clothing, like Blitz and the others who are promoting this event as some sort of omen and harbinger of the end of the world.

Over and over again we are called to be “sober.” This does not mean the opposite of being drunk, it means to be grounded, logical, even keeled.

Scriptures say…

1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Titus 2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Those who still look for signs and wonders today are on dangerous ground; for the Antichrist ‘who will deceive much of the world with signs and wonders

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The Lord Jesus Christ HIMSELF said that an evil and adulterous generation seeks after signs.

Matthew 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

Folks, there is nothing special about these blood moons.

OK… we have four that are landing on Jewish Holidays.

batman-slaps-robin-blood-moons

What most people do not know is that the Jewish calendar is lunar based. That means that the odds are pretty good that lunar eclipses and other lunar events will take place on Jewish Holidays.

People like to point to events that took place during a Jewish holiday and lunar eclipse.

What people do not think about is how many lunar eclipses took place and NOTHING happened.

Almost every month there is some lunar eclipse taking place somewhere in the world. Lunar eclipses takes place all the time and it is nothing special.

The events that all these book selling authors are selling, have NOTHING to do with the second coming of Christ.

If anything, all we chalk this up to is another event that can “POSSIBLY” remind us, that we are living in the last days of the last days and that is all.

There is nothing else special to these “blood moons” except for the pagan practitioners of magic and the arts who use this time to give power to their spells and such.

These blood moons have nothing to do with scripture, God’s Word, or anything Godly what so ever.

If anything happens it will most likely be from self-proclaimed prophecy and man’s over reaction to something non-biblical.

We need to remain sober and be busy with God’s work. We do not need to be chasing down rabbit trails. Sure it is fun and it feels good, but it is a distraction from what we should be doing. That is being the salt and light to the world and sharing the gospel and the blessed hope of His soon return.

That is what we should be doing, not chasing fairy-tales, signs, dreams and wonders or any of these other hyped up things that people attribute to bible prophecy while smearing Christ’s name in the mud.  

We are living in the last days of the last days.

What do you want Christ to find you to be doing when He returns?

More and more people are becoming concerned about intrusion into their private lives. One might say “I have nothing to hide, so why should I care.”

What would happen if our own nation became hostile towards bible believing Christians?

Now do you have something to hide?

I personally believe that this is something that we seriously need to start taking into consideration. I believe that we need to start thinking about networking with each other, teaching each other and being a source of encouragement to each other now instead of later.

It is my desire for PZ Insiders to have an area where they can learn more about dealing with the topic of going underground like many churches in persecuted countries have previously done.

As I find more information, I will post it to the PZ UNDERGROUND area. I will also be adding files to the PZ Survival Library to support this area as well.

We also have our the articles that are open to our registered PZ Members, our PZ Forum as well as our “Who’s Who” in Bible Prophecy area. The who’s who area is a ongoing project that is constantly being changed and updated.
