What Happened to the Blood Moon Prophecies?

sep22Like the people I wrote about in my previous post, some Christians see judgement and doom in every event. For example, there were four “blood moons” in 2015 and 2016. Mark Biltz and John Hagee claimed that it meant a bloody slaughter of the Jews in Israel.

I don’t remember anything like what they claimed happening in Israel. There were quite a few stabbing’s of Jews by Muslims but violence is common in the Middle East.

This sort of false prophesying has gone on for millennia. Even in my lifetime, I remember how the Children of God cult members fled America because their leader said that a comet would destroy the United States in January of 1974.

I remember the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the house church leader, where I attended, saying there would be a famine in 1975 and we all needed to stock up on non-perishable food. Since I barely had money to pay the rent and buy groceries, the elder woman of the church promised that I could come there to live during the famine.
Then there was the planetary alignment of 1982 which certain people claimed would bring on catastrophic events. March the tenth was supposed to be the day but it came and went without incident.

We all remember Y2K and how it was a huge flop. Various Christian organizations were hocking freeze-dried survival food to believers. They thought that anarchy would break out once the mainframe computers crashed and city people would panic.
In my How I Was Razed book, I showed how paranoid the elders of the house church were regarding the mark of the beast and end times disasters. Read more about this wondrous testimony of God’s providential leading at Amazon.

  1. My former daughter-in-law’s father had been married several times and always said he was a “prophet.” He married Becky and Eric after she and my son were divorced. He seemed to panic whenever something new took place and I remember him visiting from Florida and my son saying Howard was running around trying to find gas masks. He was quite insulted when my son refused the offer to get one for him. He also said that an alien landed and he and his last wife were scooped up and taken somewhere on their mode of transportation. There was so much more but the gas mask incident remained prominent in my mind.


    1. That’s so true, Kay. Furthermore, Jesus told us to take no thought for tomorrow and that we should pray, “Give us our daily bread.” We must learn to trust in our heavenly Father, not supposed prophets.

      By the way, I bought a gas mask but not for the reasons you wrote. It’s good to have when working in dusty or microbe-laden environments. There’s a rodent called a deer mouse whose feces contains a fatal microbe which is deadly to us. That’s why I bought mine in case I had to clean out the garage.
