Hey, remember Four Blood Moons, the charismatic craze started by John Hagee and Mark Blitz, claiming that four lunar eclipses in 2015 would result in catastropic and world-changing (if not world-ending events) in September of that year? It was a best selling book, the topic of endless articles in Charisma Mag, and yet another reason for Jim Bakker to sell buckets of his survival slop.
Yeah. It didn’t happen. It turns out that astrology isn’t Biblical (in fact, it’s explicitly forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-14). It also turns out that completely predictable astronomical events like lunar and solar eclipses don’t mean anything.
After the Four Blood Moons prophecy didn’t come to pass, charismatics turned their prophetic guesses to the “super moon” just a few weeks ago. Charisma Mag claimed that the December 3 super moon had prophetic significance, writing, “The moon is located in the constellation Taurus (The Bull), which is the sign of the second coming of Christ. Skywatchers in the northwestern U.S., Alaska and Asia will see the super moon cover the Bright Star Aldebaran (the governor), a picture of Christ as He returns to Earth to rule in power. This coming together of the moon, symbolic of the believers (Ps. 89:37) and Aldebaran, symbolic of Christ, is reminiscent of the great American eclipse, where the moon and the sun, representing Christ (Ps. 19:4-5), came together to invite believers to repent and return to the presence of God.”
Okaaaay. So that meant nothing.
Now, charismatics are engaging in astrology and omen-interpretation claiming that the upcoming “Super Blue Blood Moon” is a sign of “triple judgment” from God. No kidding.
Charisma Mag explains (the article was originally published by charismatic site, Breaking Israel News)…
A series of three supermoons began on Sunday and will end with a super Blue Blood Moon on Jan. 31, giving what one rabbi explained is a triple-dose of divine judgment to “the haters of Israel” as the secular New Year comes in.
A supermoon occurs when the moon is at the part of its elliptical orbit that brings it closer to Earth, appearing up to 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than when it is viewed at its furthest point. On Sunday, Dec. 2, a supermoon was visible over the United States, and two more supermoons are expected over the course of the beginning of the new year.
The upcoming supermoon on the night of January 1st will mark when the moon at its closest point this year and will be the largest of the three supermoons.
The final supermoon of the trio will arrive on Jan. 31. It is also a “blue moon,” so called because it is the second full moon in a single calendar month. On average, blue moons happen every two and a half years. That supermoon will also feature a total lunar eclipse, with totality viewable during moonset from western North America across the Pacific to Eastern Asia.
The moon’s appearance will change during the eclipse, gradually getting darker and taking on a rusty or blood-red color, making the astronomical spectacle a super-blue “blood moon.”
So this “Super Blue Blood Moon” will be a “triple-dose of divine judgment to the haters of Israel.” Good to know.
Charismatics cannot tell the difference between Christianity and occultism. That’s because the Spirit of God is not in them.
