WASHINGTON, October 23, 2013 — Is there a prophetic message for humanity’s future in the signs of the heavens? That’s the topic of author and Cornerstone Church Pastor John Hagee’s new book, Four Blood Moons which explores the connections between Israel’s history, major world upheavals and cosmic events.

In Genesis 1:1,14 the Bible says “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth … And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years.” Starting from that foundation, Hagee reminds readers that Jesus also taught that there would be “signs in the sun, in the moon and in the stars” (Luke 21:25) as a sign that believers should be alert to the nearing return of the Savior.

“The Hebrew word for “sign” is owth, which also translates as “signals,”” Hagee writes. “Therefore based on the Bible, God uses the sun, moon and stars as signals to mankind. He uses the heavens as His divine billboard announcing coming events.”

Hagee points out that major world changes have corresponded with the blood moons of 1493-1494, 1949-1950, and 1967-1968. From the opening of the New World to the emergence of a Jewish state to major wars in the Middle East, Hagee writes that these events “centered on significant events related to Israel and the Jewish people” and that the coming blood moons of 2014-2015 could mark another major change for Israel and the world.

“[We] can rightly conclude that the next series of Four Blood Moons of 2014 and 2015 will also hold significance for Israel and the Jewish people. Each of the three previous series of Four Blood Moons began with a trail of tears and ended with triumph for the Jewish people,” Hagee writes.

The central message throughout Four Blood Moons however is not merely a call to watch the skies but an impassioned appeal for individuals to recognize the necessity for faith in Jesus. Hagee also calls upon the nations to show unconditional love towards Israel and to be aware that God will punish or reward nations based on their treatment of Israel.
