Recently, I had an entire Sunday School class ask me with such alarm about the 4 Blood Moons and what they mean. There was real worry in their questions. I was vaguely aware of this idea of the 4 Blood Moons, but I had very little idea what it really was about. Since, I have read the two major works on the Blood Moon theory, which are: Blood Moons Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs by Mark Biltz and Four Blood Moons Something is About to Change by John Hagee. Let me say from the outset, the blood moon theory is utter rubbish built from a NASA website and absolutely not from God’s Word.
The Blood Moon Theory
Mark Biltz, created this theory, working with a NASA website that posts the calendar dates of all solar and lunar eclipses. Here is that website that I think is a cool site, when not applied to Biblical Prophecy.
He took notice of what is called a “tetrad.” A “tetrad” is a series of 4 consecutive total lunar eclipses, which he believes to be very significant especially when the these lunar eclipses occur on the feast days of the Jewish Calendar like the feast of Passover, feast of Booths, etc. According to his book, there have been 62 tetrads over the last 2000 years. Of these 62 tetrads, 8 have occurred on consecutive Jewish holy days. (Chapter 6 Blood Moons) Biltz then took these 8 tetrads that occurred on the Jewish holy days as a prophetic sign and signal from God for a major world event, involving the Jewish people.
