Wonder if God is Up to Something!

If you look around in the world today, you have to agree that things are changing. I believe sometimes it even changes overnight, but lately is seems in my heart and soul, God is getting ready to stir something big. Not sure when it will happen but here are some things I've noticed lately.

When I went to the movies over the weekend, there were some incredible trailers for upcoming movies, Noah, starring Russell Crowe and Heaven is For Real with Greg Kinnear are both coming out in 2014. Even some of the movie posters are reflecting the same thing, with Son of God with Roma Downey coming to theaters around Easter of 2014 as well as Left Behind with Nicholas Cage coming this summer.

Now I don't know about you, but this is a first for me seeing Hollywood taking a serious stab at bringing messages from God to the big screen. Will there be subtle changes to the overall message since it's coming from Hollywood? Without a doubt, but for me, this is the first time, you've seen such an influx of religious based movies all culminating from Hollywood in a single year.

Doesn't that strike you as odd?

Is God trying to say something to gain our attention?

Not only that but this year, there is a possibility of something happening in the nation of Israel with the culmination of the Fourth Blood Moon occurrence slated to begin this year. 

"The next time the Four Blood Moons begin to appear will be in April 2014. NASA has projected that the Tetrad will begin on April 2014 and end in September 2015. It will occur in the following sequence:

1. Passover, April 15, 2015
2. Feast of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014
3. Passover, April 4, 2015
4. Feast of Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

After the appearance of the second Blood Moon  and before the third Blood Moon where will be a total solar eclipse on March 20, 2015.

What is the significance of these Four Blood Moons?

It is very rare that Scripture, science, and historical events align with one another, yet the last three Four Blood Moon series of Tetrads have done exactly that. Remember, several Tetrads have occurred in the past five hundred years; only three have corresponded to the Jewish Feasts as well as being linked to historical events significant to Israel. Seven more Tetrads will take place in the twenty-first century, however only one of these seven, the Tetrad of 2014-2015, will align itself with the Feasts of the Lord.

"I will show wonders in the heaven and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord." ~ Joel 2:30-31

A Shemittah year occurs every seven year; it's known as a time of rest for the land much like the Sabbath, which occurs every seven days, it is a time of rest for man. While observing Shemittah guarantees abundance, neglecting it leads to judgement.

Every seven years we experience a Shemittah year in which God allows something to happen that gets our undivided attention whether we are ready or not! Just look at what happened in the last several Shemittah years:

1973 - The Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade occurred, which has resulted in the deaths of more than 60 million unborn babies.
1980 - Saddam Hussein invaded Iran to signal the beginning of the Gulf War years.
1987 - A supernova that could be seen by the naked eye for the first time since 1604 occurred. That same year, the U.S. stock market crashed.
1994 - Yasser Arafat returns to the Middle East. A rare earthquake occurred in North America on the New Madrid fault line; it spanned the Midwest of the United States up to Canada.
2001 - America was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists killing nearly 3000 Americans on 9/11
2008 - America experienced a stock market crash on Sept 29 when the market fell 777 point in one day. It was the greatest decline in the history of Wall Street.

Now add seven years and that brings us to 2015, in which you will find the last two Four Blood Moons of 2014-2015. Remember God does everything at a "set time" (Psalm 102:13)

We know that only three Tetrads have occurred in the last 500 years that are significant to Israel and also fall on the Jewish Feasts. We also know that there are the only Tetrads that have had a total solar eclipse soemwhere within the series. The coming Tetrad in 2014-2015 will also contain a total solar eclipse within its series. But what is different between the previous Tetrads significant to Israel and the coming Tetrad?

Unlike the others, this series of Four Blood Moons contains a Shemittah year beginning September 25, 2014, and concluding September 13, 2015. Astoundingly, this Shemittah year will begin on the first day of the Jewish New Year (Feast of Trumpets) of 2014 and conclude on the following celebration of the Jewish New Year (Feast of the Trumpets) in 2015. Now this is where is gets interesting:

The occurrence of a lunar eclipse is common.
The occurrence of a total lunar eclipse is less common.
The occurrence of a Tetrad or four consecutive Blood Moons (total lunar eclipses) is rare.
The occurrence of a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse within its series is very rare.
A Tetrad with a total solar eclipse that is significant to Israel's history and the Jewish Feasts is very, very rare.
The occurrence of a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse historically significant to Israel and Jewish Feasts that includes a Shemittah year within its series is very, very, very rare.
But a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse, historically significant to Israel and Jewish Feasts with a Shemittah year that corresponds with the Feasts of Trumpets (Jewish New Year) within its series is astronomically rare!" (Four Blood Moons by John Hagee).

"Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." ~ Luke 21:28

I believe these occurrence are not concidental! This is the hand of God orchestrating something big is coming. Something that will change the world forever.

But the bigger question is, are we watching and listening?

Is God giving us one final opportunity to pay attention and make a decision to follow him?

I believe He is!

Wow, those are some very amazing facts! I haven't seen all of those movie trailers but will definitely go to the show to see the movies. I loved the book Heaven is For Real and I'm surprised by Nicholas Cage doing Left Behind. Anyway to get the message spread is fine by me! I loved Roma Downey's Son of God that was on TV.

I actually read John Hagee's book on the four blood moons. From there I did a bit of sleuthing about the man who first posited the theory. I found Mark Blitz (a messianic pastor who lives/preaches not far from me) to be a man given to flawed theology. I was surprised Hagee took up the theme, especially since his book offers so little meat and far too much chaff (primarily in the form of repetitive material from his former books). I've no doubt God is up to something because His word is so clear on that matter. We look up, because He draws near!
