Blood Moon Tetrad Begins April 15, 2014

“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The Sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair. The whole Moon turned blood red.”

Just kidding.

Although April 15 marks the beginning of an interesting occurrence, the phenomenon isn’t all that rare or supernatural.

The tetrad, or series of four lunar eclipses spanning back-to-back years, also occurred in 2003 and 2004. In other words, we have lived through one already. But this doesn’t keep the end-of-the-world prophecies away by any means.

Because the first and third lunar eclipses in this tetrad will coincide with Passover and the second and fourth will coincide during the feast of Tabernacles, some religious leaders believe this to be significant.

John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, published a book in 2013 called “Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change.” He tells his megachurch congregation of more than 20,000 that the rarity of a tetrad is strong evidence a major change of course in history will occur.

The phrase “blood moon,” though not an astronomical term, is used to describe the red or orange appearance of the moon when the sun’s rays reflect off of the Earth’s atmosphere during a lunar eclipse. The depth of the color can be affected by temperature, humidity, and the amount of dust particles in the atmosphere.

However, despite all the attention Hagee and his book have gotten, Christian Today reports that only a “small group of Christians” see the tetrad as significant.

In his article “The Science Behind the ‘Blood Moon Tetrad’ and Why Lunar Eclipses Don’t Mean the End of the World,” author David Dickinson talks about how humans love to see patterns in things, even when none exist.

“And yes, earthquakes, wars, disease, relationship breakups and lost car keys are on tap to occur in 2014 and 2015… just like during any other year,” he writes. “Lunar eclipses marked the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the World Series victory of the Red Sox in 2004, but they’re far from rare … This is simply a case of the gambler’s fallacy, counting the hits at the cost of the misses.

“We could just as easily make a case that the upcoming eclipse tetrad of April 15th, October 8th, April 4th and September 28th marks US Tax Day, Croatian Independence Day, The Feast of Benedict of the Moor & — Michael Scott take note — International World Rabies Day… perhaps the final 2015 eclipse should be known as a ‘Rabies Moon?'”

Whatever you choose to call it, you can view it next week on April 15 starting at 3:07 a.m. EST. Full coverage can be seen until approximately 3:36 a.m. EST and the entire eclipse will last just over an hour. As with any lunar eclipse, the best viewing is away from city lights and, although telescopes do give a more detailed view, the phenomenon can be seen with the naked eye.

Viewers will also be able to clearly see Mars, which will appear bright red on the right side of the moon, and Spica, a star expected to shine brightly during the eclipse.

    • James Thomas

      You must not read your bible a lot, people will be scared when the whole middle east makes a peace treaty. That is when the end of times is going to happen.

      • Carolyn

        That is scripturally true ! ( 1 Thessalonians 5:3 ). It says that when they say, ” Peace and Security “, then sudden destruction is to be upon us !

      • gambino

        I do read my bible a lot, and you obviously didn’t read what I wrote. Where did I say this was the end times.

        • Lushiro

          Incase you haven’t been watching the apparent signs, WE. ARE. LIVING. IN. THE. END TIMES.

          • gambino

            I would say this is the beginning of the End! its just now starting

          • Daniel

            It began when Israel became a nation

            That is so true ! ( Ephesians 4:31 ; Colossians 3:8 ; 1 Timothy 6:4 ).

    Just kidding. Just Kidding! LOL The bible is NOT KIDDING!

    • kristin.wandra

      I dont think he was kidding about the bible… pretty sure he was using a quote from the bible to draw us in to his article by making us believe that a lunar event from this year is significant to any religious anything except sharing the date. -_-

      • gambino

        that’s exactly what he did, but then he says “Just kidding”

    • Carolyn

      That would be in Revelations 6:12 ! ( Joel 2:31 ; Matthew 24:29 ; and Acts 2:20 relates also ). Laugh all you want, but God will have the LAST laugh ! ( Psalms 1:4 ; Psalms 37:13 ). Reading JOEL 2:1 – 3, 6 ; Zephaniah 1:2, 3, 14 – 18 is very SCARY !

      • veritatis_splendor

        I usually read the prophecies in revelations with a grain of salt. For all we know, they might all be figurative. But you know, Rev 6:12-17 seems like a scene from a nuclear war. With missiles falling from the sky, mountains and islands moved from their places. The sky being rolled up like a scroll might look like a mushroom cloud from an A bomb. And people hiding in caves might actually be people trying to hide from nuclear fallout. But you know, I could be wrong.

        • Carolyn

          I bet we will be like king Belshazzar ! ( Daniel 5:6 ). Heehee. In any case, the Book of Revelations were revelations given by Jesus to the apostle John, the last of His apostles ! It was in ” signs “, but John bore witness to God’s word, and John saw and heard the witness that Jesus gave about the Father in heaven. ( Revelations 1:1 – 2 ). It is a fact that Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God, ( Acts 7:55, 56 ; Romans 8:34 ), and that Jesus will be the ruler when God’s kingdom arrives. ( Isaiah 9:7 ; Daniel 7:13, 14 ; Revelations 11:15 ). Halleluhjah !

    • gambino

      I agree, this A.P. writer probably doesn’t believe in God or doesn’t read the Bible , for him to make a joke like that!

    • Seeker of Truth

      Scary enough to keep you in line? Scary enough to keep you in church, with its collection plate? Scary enough for your parents to threaten you with damnation for the smallest indiscretion? Scary enough to blindly follow a despot murdering in the name of God should he call you to arms?
      Amazing what a good shot of fear will do to your rationality, yes? Just look at what you gave up for the TSA.

      But no, that was NOT enough. Dantes Inferno was what tipped the bucket, for without it, there was no penalty for sin. God is “all forgiving” remember? What would a being like that need a hell for?

      • veritatis_splendor

        God is merciful, yes, but God is also just. People go to hell because they choose to live apart from God. God is all-good, that is true. But justice also belongs to God’s goodness. God will not reward a person who persists in evil. Do you think it is a sign of goodness to reward UNREPENTANT murderers or rapists with heaven? How about people who do not respect God? If your answer is no, then you’ve just confirmed why hell exists, regardless of whether it instills fear or is merely ignored.

        • Seeker of Truth

          OK
          So its OK to make up an imaginary place and put it in a work of fiction for the sole purpose of promoting and instilling fear.
          You DO realize that terrorists have the same mindset yes? If you remove the “terror” of Hell your hypocritical religion falls apart. If you remove the “terror” from any religion it falls apart.
          And again, as if Gods crime against his own angels were not enough, here we have an entity, with for-knowledge of every single life, every single destiny, and he wastes his time creating enemies simply because he is bored. He tortures and maims and kills just to “test” people. He deliberately creates life for the sole purpose of condemning it. Just ask your so-called “devil”
          Or are you saying that all knowing GOD did not know the devils fate when he created him? Or did he know and just not care?
          Good and Evil? Man created those to control men. God just “is”. And as God, he is above your petty terrorism.

          • veritatis_splendor

            I don’t know why you seem to hate God so much. You only assumed that hell is made up, but fact is, justice demands its existence. You know that not all injustices get punished here on earth. If there’s a good God, where else would their victims get justice?

            Your anti-religion bias also gives you a twisted and warped image of God. God is all-good and he created creatures to communicate his goodness to them. He gave them free will as a sign of his goodness, but some creatures abused their freedom and unjustly rebelled against God to whom they owe their existence. They also do not repent of their injustice despite the chances given them. Obviously, it is not God’s fault that some creatures go to hell. They are there through their own fault and free will, and God is merely enforcing the demands of justice. He is not a sadist who enjoys a creature’s perdition. In fact, he sent his Son to redeem the world. Only pride can distort your reason and allow you to blindly blame it on God when in fact, God has given us a lot of chances to be saved in this life to the point that Jesus took upon himself the punishment for our sins.

            Actually, there are religions who preach there is no hell. In fact, a religion might even be more attractive if it taught there’s no hell because there’ll just be all rainbows and unicorns and all that sweet stuff. But then, that would be lying. Because hell exists.

        • Carolyn

          True, the wicked will be destroyed ! ( Psalms 37:20 ). However, God wants all to repent and ask forgiveness ! ( 2 Peter 3:9 ).

  • Carolyn

    Didn’t it also occur in December 2010 ?

    • gambino

      Yes I think so, but Iran was not that close to getting nukes and Russia didn’t start invading countries like he is now

      • Seeker of Truth

        So we had to wait for God to give Iran Nukes and Russia the OK to invade?
        Idiot. What happens when God does not appear in your predicted timeline?
        Maybe we need to wait for God to swing apophasis back around? Perhaps after God gives Ethiopia Nukes it will be time?
        Or are we waiting for Egypt to set the Hebrews free?
        What happened to the Maya calendar? And what about the Pope? Is he not Gods spokesmen on Earth?
        I have lived through 4 or 5 “ends of the world”, “second comings” and “raptures”. And look, here I am.
        I am confident that I will make it through this one as well. God does not set “conditions”. Man does that. God either is, or is not.
        And that’s all.

  • Carolyn

    No one knows the day or hour of the coming of God’s Day ! ( Matthew 24:36 ). It will come like a thief in the night ! ( 1 Thesslonians 5:2 ). Now how many thieves let you know when they are coming ? !

    • gambino

      read or free the preface and 1st chapter of World War 3 2014 (AMAZON.COM) just to give you an idea its “FREE”

    • Seeker of Truth

      Well, considering that Obama was elected…..twice

      • Carolyn

        What does Obama’s being president have to do with the scripture that I mentioned ? !

        • gambino

          Don’t worry Caroline he is a complete ignorant moron anyway, so who cares what he says!

          • Seeker of Truth

            The forces of Satan converge Gambino. Your ignorance shall be your damnation.

          • Carolyn

            Hahahaha, the commenter ” JMMY ” is a real piece of work ! He had me on a roll ! Good luck with your book ! I used the GOOD book to refer him some scripture ! He did not know that God has His own army , so I enlightened him. You can see my comments on here !

        • Seeker of Truth

          You asked about how many thieves i know of that announce themselves. I cited Obama. But i suppose the catholic church and the pope work just as well.

          • Carolyn

            Neither Obama or the Pope ” announced ” that they were coming, but Obama was ELECTED, and I believe the Pope was ” chosen ” ! I am not Catholic, so I do not know for certain.

          • Seeker of Truth

            So election candidates are not announced? In any way shape or form? They just “appear” from the ether? No conventions or poles where they are ANNOUNCED and INTRODUCED to the American People? They do not declare or ANNOUNCE their candidacy?
            And the candidates for Popes are not announced either? All that media coverage over the Pope and you do not consider it an announcement?
            You have just lost any credibility that you may have had in this discussion. Gambino lost his when he started spamming his book.
            You two foolish humans think that you have God bound up in a book. Contained in a set of rules that MAN made to control other MEN. God can not be bound by book or religion. You think your silly little book contains all there is to know about God, and in reality, the truth of the book is to reveal MEN.
            The truth of ANY religion is to control MEN.
            For only MAN needs an army. Why would the most powerful force ever seen in the Universe require an army?

          • Carolyn

            You LOST the point, when you veered off rom the original comment which was about ” thieves ” not letting one know WHEN they are coming [ to rob you ], you spinned it around to Obama . . . who ANNOUNCED his candidacy and his re-reun for office, which was appropraite, but it is not that way with a thief ! President Obama was not ” coming “, but he was ” running ” [ for office ]. ! He ANNOUNCED his decision to RUN ! As for the Pope, I thought they had a process to go through in choosing that person, with the decision being announced after some kind of ” smoke ” signal was given. Like I said, I am not Catholic, so I do not know, nor do I care ! Okay ? For your information, God is not bound by any thing or any one, and it is His word that is bound in the book of Scriptures . . . words inspired by Him ! ( 2 Timothy 3:16 ; 2 Peter 1:20, 21 ). God’s Son Jesus is the WORD ! ( John 1:14 ). There were not enough scrolls to write all there is about God or Jesus ! ( John 20:20 ; John 21:25 ). Yes, God has His own army, and His ” soldiers “, aka warriors ! ( Deuteronomy 33:2 ; 1 Kings 22:19 ; Psalms 68:17 ; Daniel 7:10 ; Jude 14, 15 ). Please read your last sentence, then answer that question for yourself ! Hint: Why do governments and world leaders have an army ? God has enemies . . . the rebellious persons, as well as Satan and his demons ! They will be dealt with when God’s War, aka Armegeddon arrives ! The WAR of all wars ! Hallelujah ! Glory to God in heaven.

          • Seeker of Truth

            OK lets try this. I will keep it simple so that you can keep up.
            The only “enemies” God could have are self created. So perfect is your God He went out and DELIBERATLY created a life HE KNEW HE WOULD CONDEMN FOR ALL ETERNITY.
            For as “God”, he would have known his angels fate before creating it.
            And yet he did it anyway.
            Your GOD created a life for the sole purpose of condemning it.
            You can KEEP your God, It is apparent that he answers to a higher power, and that is the power I answer to. Your God created us for his own bloody entertainment. My God created us because He is a lonely God, and He knows that one day, somehow, some of us will be worthy enough to call him “friend”. Worthy enough to have a one on one conversation that isn’t about granting me this or that. My God doesn’t play favorites. He just is. By evoking evolution one day your God will die. He will no longer be needed and he will be forgotten. Mankind will evolve past the NEED for a God, the NEED to be afraid, and instead entertain the serious possibility that on a very fundamental level, we are ALL God.
            Your God has no friends for he supposedly has no equals. Only legions upon legions of terrified little boys and girls that never can seem to outgrow their fear. I leave them, and you, to the whims of what seems to be a very unstable God. A lonely God with no one to talk to, because everyone whom believes in him are too afraid to answer.

          • Carolyn

            God created man and woman with FREE WILL, and the angels were given free will also ! He did not create ROBOTS ! It was Satan who caused sin to enter the world. ( Romans 5:12 ; 1 Corinthians 15:21, 22 ). He deceived Eve ( Genesis 3:13 ), when he told the first lie, that she would not die, if she ate from the fobidden tree ! ( Genesis 3:4 ). For that reason, Satan is called ” the father of the lie “, and those who do not believe in God or Jesus, are children of Satan. ( John 8:44 ). God did not make any junk, some people chose to be junk ! Everything that God created was ” good “, ( Genesis 1:10, 12, 18, 21, 25 ), and the first two humans, Adam and Eve, were created ” perfect “, but because of their sin, they became imperfect, and their descendants were born imperfect ! It was Adam and Eve who passed on their ” imperfection ” to all other humans, therefore that is why none of us are perfect. ( Romans 5:19 ). Satan was jealous of God and Jesus, because he wanted to be worshipped. He even tried to get Jesus to ” bow down to him ” ! ( Matthew 4:1 – 11 ; Luke 4:1 – 13 ). Satan roamed the earth when Job was alive ( Job 1:6, 7 ), and after having been thrown out of heaven, ( Revelations 12:7 – 12 ), he continues to roam the earth ! ( 1 Peter 5:8 ). Yes, Satan was one of God’s angels, ( Job 1:6 ), and he desired to ” willfuly ” become a resister, aka a devil or the great dragon ! For your information, God is notlonely ! He has more than enough angels to keep Him company and attend to His needs ! ( Isaiah 6:2 ; Daniel 7:10 ; Hebrews 1:14 ; Revelations 5:11 ). God also has an army ! ( 1 Kings 22:19 ).

          • Seeker of Truth

            You still miss the point
            God did all of this KNOWING that all of this would be the results. All the suffering, misery, DAMNATION, all would have been known to him prior to him saying “Let there be light”
            And he did it anyway.
            He knew an army would rise against him and the Earth would be soaked with blood, horror, and misery
            And he did it anyway
            He creates his enemies because he is bored. An all powerful God whom can’t even get an X-box one.
            And that is the point.
            HE DELIBERATLY CREATED THINGS JUST TO WATCH THEM SUFFER.
            And he KNEW that he was doing it at the time he did it.
            If two people had a kid, and they only wanted to make that child suffer, and then DAMN the child, possibly murdering all of its siblings, just because they were paying attention to something more than the parents, and then kept a “journal” or “Bible” that we could review at leisure, then what would we do to the parents?

            YOU would call those parents “God” or “Gods”

            People like myself would do the following
            .
            We would take their kids away. How about lock up the parents for as long as the law allowed? We would make this public, so any other parent sick enough to think of the same thing would think twice. We would be as severe with this God(s) as the law allowed.
            You’re going to be waiting a long, LONG time for your God to be let out of “God Jail”. (2000 years perhaps? LOL)
            Or would you rather I use a more colorful metaphor. “Hell” comes to mind.
            All at the courtesy of your God.

          • Carolyn

            God did not create robots, but He created a man and a woman whom He gave ” free will “, but it was the *serpent who deceived Eve and caused her to sin, ( Genesis 3:13 ), and that was the beginning of man’s problems which includes DEATH and imperfections, as well as diseases in the body, etc. ! Well, we know that serpents do not talk, but it was Satan who was talking through the serpent, therefore Satan was the first liar, aka he is known as the” father of the lie ” ( John 8:44 ), as well as the first ventriloquist ! Yes, Satan is also known as the great dragon, and he was hurled from heaven. ( Revelations 12:7 – 12 ). *Satan was an angel who desired to be worshipped ! ( Job 1:6, 7 ; Matthew 4:1 – 10 ; Luke 4:1 – 13 ). He is currently walking the earth looking for someone to devour ! ( 2 Peter 5:8 ). Well, we should stand firm against Satan and oppose him, then he will flee from us ! ( EPHESIANS 6:11 ; James 4:7 ). Jesus will deal with Satan ! ( Matthew 25:41, 46 ; Revelations 20:10 ). Jesus’ purpose is also to break up the works of Satan the devil ! ( 1 John 3:8 ).

          • Carolyn

            God is not bored, because He has continued working ( John 5:17 ) ever since He created earth and all life in it . . . . man, animal and plant ! ( Deuteronomy 10:14 ; Psalms 24:1 ).

          • Carolyn

            Hell is simply known as the grave ! It is also known as Sheol or Hades. ( Genesis 37:35 ; Ecclesiastes 9:10 ; Isaiah 14:9, 11 ; Revelations 20:13, 14 ). There are other scriptures which indicates that hell is the grave . . . Jesus was in ” hell ” for three days. ( Psalms 16:10 ; Acts 2:27 ). Jesus was without sin, ( Hebrews 4:15 ; 1 Peter 2:22 ), so He did not go to a place that is suppose to be for sinners. It seems that people mistake the ” lake of fire ” as being the place for the sinners, aka ” hell “. ( Revelations 20:10, 14, 15 ). Heaven can barely contain God, so there is no jail that can hold Him, afterall God is a Spirit, ( John 4:24 ) aka invisible ! Spirits have no flesh or bones. ( Luke 24:29 ). Your portrayal of God is despicable, and I am no prophetess, but I smell doom in your future ! Your blasphemy will not be forgiven ( Matthew 12:31, 32 ), and your comments may cause harm to your family etc. I shall not reply to you again.

    Just look at the photo of the author of this article, Mike Tuttle, at the end of this page. DO YOU TRUST HIM with WHERE YOU WILL GO when you die? EDUCATE YOURSELVES. Read the Bible. Don’t watch preachers on t.v. or read articles from people on the web. READ IT YOURSELF then make your own decision. If you listen to musical groups/acts like: Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, ACDC, Ozzy, Black Sabbath, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Alan Parson’s Project, ELO, The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, The Who, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Van Halen, The Doors, U2…and legions of other acts, YOU HAVE THE DELUDING INFLUENCE MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE, COMPLIMENTS OF DEVIL. Bob Dylan rightly expressed a spiritual truth, “Your gonna have to serve someone, It may be the devil or it may be the Lord. But your gonna have to serve somebody” Eclipses of the moon and sun are signs from G-D in heaven, and you CANNOT AFFORD to be tricked in missing what G-D is communicating to the people on earth. E D U C A T E Y O U R S E L F! If you listen to the groups listed above, read what the Word of G-D in the Bible says:

    II Corinthians 3:14, 16 “But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. 16 But whenever ANYONE turns to the L-RD, the veil is taken away.

    II Thessalonians 2:10-12 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they (did not receive)[meaning you did not understand the truth of the Bible & truth about Jesus] the love of the truth [THIS MEANS REJECTING JESUS CHRIST OF YOUR OWN FREE WILL] so as to be saved. 11 For this reason [because you chose not to find out for yourself who Jesus is] God will send upon them a deluding influence [rock music, t.v., movies, internet to distract you with Satan’s agenda]] so that they will believe what is false,[WHAT IS FALSE=SATAN…BELIEVING IN SATAN!] 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

    Those who research the Bible, those who have read up on history, and those who choose to research TETRADS in history ALL UNDERSTAND and have found THE SAME EXACT FINDINGS WHICH ARE FACT…ONLY THREE TETRADS have occurred in the past 500 YEARS! We will experience the 4th Tetrad beginning NEXT WEEK. Knowledge is TRUTH. NEVER allow people to dictate to you! Research it for yourselves!

    IF the purpose for THIS TETRAD IS TRUE…can YOU really AFFORD TO BE left out of KNOWING WHAT IS GETTING READY TO HAPPY TO EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD? WHAT IF? WHAT IF it is ALL TRUE? WHAT is to gain? WHAT is to lose? WHO will GAIN? WHO will LOSE?

    When an extremely rare event that occurs only three times in the past 500 years is getting ready to happen in the midst of ALL the uncertainty, chaos, worldwide injustice, the worldwide balance of power is total imbalance, when all wrongs in the world have been suddenly and mystically accepted as the ‘new right,’ and all rights and morals and virtues have suddenly and mystically been rejected and wiped out as ‘wrong and unacceptable,’ the uncontainable pressure and wicked forces which have built up must explode at some time.

      Yes, the ” old covenant ” was replaced with a New Covenant, just as God told Jeremiah it would be ! ( Jeremiah 31:31 -33 ). The reason that it was replaced can be read in Hebrews 8:7 -13. The scripture that you referred to us, 2 Corinthians 3:14, 16 TELLS us, ” that only in Christ can it be taken away. “, and that is true because Jesus Christ is the mediator of the new covenant ! ( Hebrews 9:11 – 16 ). The Mosaic Laws ended when Jesus died ( Romans 7:4, 6 ; Colossians 2:14 ), and we are now under God’s ” undeserved kindness ” ! ( Romas 6:14 ). The Laws were ineffctive ! ( Hebrews 7:18, 19 ). That was apparent, since the Israelites were forever breaking those Laws ! Read ” Moses’ Song ” . . . God instructed Moses to ” write a song “, and teach it to the Israelites, in Deuteronomy 31:19, 22, 30 ; ( the song begins at Deuteronomy 32:1 – 43 ). Moses KNEW they would act ruinously after his death ! ( Deuteronomy 31:29 ; Deuteronomy 32:5, 6, 18 – 21 ).

    • Carolyn

      Jesus will deal with those who have not accepted Him and His Father ! ( 2 Thessalonians 1:7 – 9 ). Although Jesus did no ” judging ” while He was on earth, He will do the JUDGING when God’s Day arrives ! ( John 5:22 ; ACTS 17:31 ; 2 Corinthians 5:10 ; 2 Timothy 4:1 ).

    • Carolyn

      The scripture TELLS us where the dead go . . . Genesis 3:19 ; Job 34:15 ; Ecclesiastes 3:20 ( both the animals and humans go to the same place ). The dead will be resurrected ! ( Daniel 12:2 ; Isaiah 26:19 ; John 5:28 ). It is Jesus who will resurrect the dead. ( John 6:40 ; John 11:25, 39 – 44 ).

    • Carolyn

      The prophet Isaiah prophesised about the Messiah about 700 years before He ( Jesus ) was born, and in Isaiah 53:1 – 12, it is apparent that Jesus fulfilled that scripture ! Jesus also fulfilled Isaiah 7:14 – 16 ; Isaiah 42:1 – 7 ; Isaiah 52:7, 13 – 15 ! Jesus told the Jews that he had fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, ( Luke 4:16 – 21 ), but they didn’t believe Him, instead they wanted to throw Him off a cliff ! ( Luke 4:29 ).

      • Seeker of Truth

        Not according to the Jews, and they WROTE the scriptures.
        If you wrote a book, and somebody argued with you about what you wrote, when you KNOW what you wrote, you would be tempted to throw them off a cliff as well.

        • Carolyn

          Moses wrote te first five books of the Scriptures : Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. God told Moses what to write ! ( Exodus 17:14 ; EXODUS 24:4 ; Exodus 34:27 ; DEUTERONOMY 31:9 ). Moses wrote scripture during the 40 years while the Israelites wandered in the Wilderness ! The Israelites later known as the Jews did not write nor obey the word of God, but they chose to leave God and worship false gods and idols ! ( Deuteronomy 32:16 – 21 ; Jeremiah 1:16 ). Moses knew the Jews real well ! ( Deuteronomy 31:27, 29 ).

          • Seeker of Truth

            So then we agree. It was the Jews that wrote the scriptures. Thank you. You can skip all the entries that confirm this. And those first 5 books are call what again? Oh yes, THE TORAH.
            Moses wrote what was needed to maintain order for the thousands of refugees waiting to storm Canaan. They rule through fear. Fear of a vengeful, jealous God that could destroy the world on a whim, over the most petty and base of HUMAN emotions.
            The New Testament attempts to dispel this fear in an attempt to attract new followers. It worked for a time. But as time went on, the church was hard pressed for answers about what happens to murders..ect. The Bible has no “Prison” other than Sheol, and nobody describes Sheol. So a new book called Dante’s Inferno was written to teach us about where the “bad” people go. And so the concept of Hell was exposed to humanity for the very first time, ignoring the basic fact that an all forgiving God does not require a “Hell”, People do. This secured the churches control even further. For Dates Inferno was illustrated, with all sorts of psychotic scary pictures, for the sole purpose of keeping you in line with the church.

            And look now to today. Next Sunday take a good hard look around and ask yourself this:

            Are these people here to express God or Jesus “Love”? True love given from free will?

            Or are they here because they are afraid of going to Hell if they are not?

            All but about 3 or 4 will be choice two. Whether you admit it to yourself, or not.

            And what good is “love” if not freely given? Given out of fear its not love at all. Just fear.

            And that just about sums up yours and everyone elses church.

            Have a splendid evening,

          • Carolyn

            No, that is not true ! It was the ” believing ” Jews, aka God’s chosen prophets who wrote the Scriptures ! God inspired them to do so, and the rest of the Israelites aka Jews chose to turn away from the true God and worship false gods. They did not care about God’s words, which was apparent since they kept breaking His commands and Laws ! The Israelites were as numerous as the stars and the sands, ( Genesis 22:17 ), but only ” speck ” of Jews wrote the Scriptures ! ( Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, Peter, James, Jude. ). By the way, Christians have different names for the ” books ” of the Scriptures, and TORAH is a Hebrew term for Jews, not for Christians ! I read that the first five books wer called PENTATEUCH, so it seems that there is a difference among the Jews also, unless one is a Greek term. In any case, the MESSAGE is the same in either, but the Jews do not accept the terms Old Testament or New Testament ! God told Jeremiah that He was giving a ” new covenant “. ( Jeremiah 31:31 – 33 ). The old covenant was done away with, which included the Mosaic Laws ! ( Hebrews 8:7 – 13 ; Hebrews 9:11 – 16 ). SHEOL is simply another name for ” grave “. Hell, pit, and ground are also names for where we go after death ! You can google it. The dead will be resurrected ! ( Daniel 12:2 ; Isaiah 26:19 ; John 5:28 ). It is Jesus who will resurrect the dead. ( John 6:40 ). God has His way of discipling His children, just as we have our way of discipling our children. If you can’t SCARE them, then you use KINDNESS to win them over ! God went from being a consuming fire, ( Deuteronomy 4:24 ; 9:3 Hebrews 12:29 ), to a God of love ( 1 John 4:8 ) and kindness. We are now under God’s UNDESERVED kindness ( Romans 6:14 ) . . . not under Law ! ( Colossians 2:14 ). The Law was ineffective. ( Hebrews 7:18, 19 ).

          • Carolyn

            SHEOL . . . ( hell, grave, or hades ) .. . . Genesis 37:35 ; Genesis 42:38 ; Job 7:9 ; Psalms 6:5 ; Psalms 16:10 ( . . . not leave my soul in sheol . . . . in the grave ) ; Psalms 55:15 ; Proverb 15:24 ( . . . turn away from sheol, down below ) ; Ecclesiates 9:10 ; Isaiah 14:15 ; Isaiah 38:10 ; 1 Samuel 2:6 ; Ezekiel 32:27 . ( Jonah said, ” Out of the belly of sheol I cried. ” ). Well for a while, the belly of that whale was indeed his ” grave ” . . . until he was spit out by the whale !

        • Carolyn

          If you have a reliable book, then it lists the author who wrote each book of the Scriptures, but you can always look it up on the internet ! It was God’s prophets who wrote His words, not the rebellious or * stiff-necked Jews ! ( * Exodus 32:9 ; 34:9 ; Deuteronomy 9:6 ).

    • Carolyn

      By the way, Jesus said that the Father is GREATER than He is ! ( John 14:28 ). That should expel the so-called Trinity, which tries to make Him equal to God. Jesus never considered Himself equal to God ( Phillipians 2:5 ), but He said they were in ” union “, aka in agreement. ( John 17:21 ). Jesus also said He was in union with the disciples, but that did not mean that they were the SAME, but they were in agreement in God’s word as one ! ( John 17:23 ). Jesus said several times that He was SENT by the Father, and that the one sent was not greater than the one who sent him ( John 13:16 ). Jesus also said that the one who sent Him was WITH him [ in spirit ]. ( John 8:29 ; John 16:32 ). Jesus said He came as the Father’s ” representative “, ( John 16:27 ), and that He ” came out ” from the Father ( John 3:16 ) . . . and that He was GOING to the Father. ( John 16: 28 ; John 20:17 ). Gee, that meant that Jesus could not have been going to himself ! He returned to where He was before coming to earth . . . heaven ! ( John 3:13 ; John 6:38 ; John 8:23 ; John 17:5, 24 ; Acts 9 – 11 ). Jesus is not God, but He was God’s first creation, before the earth and heavens were created ! ( Proverbs 8:22 – 30 ; John 1:14 ; JOHN 3:16 ; Colossians 1:15 ). Therefore God ( the heavenly Father ), Jesus ( the Son of God ), and the *Holy Spirit ( God’s ” active ” force ) are not the same but are three seperate spirit- beings ! ( Matthew 27:19 ). In this scripture, notice the use of the word ” the ” being used THREE times for 3 seperate persons ! * see John 14:16, 25 ; John 16:7, 8, 13 . . . ( the ” helper “, aka the ” holy spirit ” ).

    Ezekiel 38 says that Russia and Iran will attack and invade Israel, then you will start to see the beginning of the end. Remember these things in Ezekiel have NOT happened yet, so they must happen before the Rapture takes place, that’s why I am saying to read ‘world War 3 2014 on Amazon because these things will bring on the Rapture and the Antichrist. Go to Amazon and you can read the preface and the 1st chapter for FREE!!!

    • Seeker of Truth

      Umm, Russia and Iran did not exist. You had Persia and Rome. Rome controlled the lands inhabited by Germany and some of Ukraine. So no, I will NOT read your trash.

      • gambino

        Umm I know Russia and Iran didn’t exist then, that’s why they are called Bible prophecies, they are visions of the future given to the prophets by God himself!!! If you read Genesis 10:6 you will see the early tribes that made up what is today the modern nations of Russia, Iran and Germany etc. also, 2500 yrs ago when this prophecy was written by Ezekiel the prophet, he didn’t call Iran , Iran, he called them Persia. Today , a lot of Iranians call themselves “Persians”

        • Seeker of Truth

          So, somewhere in the Bible Russia is predicted by name?
          Which “Early tribe” does the bible mention that cites Russia?
          Because it DOESNT.
          The Russians are direct descendants of the original Vikings. First know as the “Rus”
          Where is the “Rus” mentioned in Ezekiel? Or even “Vikings”?
          Because it IS NOT.
          Try again Nostradamus.

          • Carolyn

            Wow !

        • Carolyn

          Yes, Persia became Iran ! Do tell, what was the former country that existed before Russia ? Was it Babel ?

      • Carolyn

        Persia became Iran ! I wouldn’t read ” trash ” either, because God’s word says it ALL !

        • Seeker of Truth

          Yes Persia became Iran. What you people fail to understand is that the Torah was written to control the Jewish people. Babylon was a competing city-state between Canaan and what is now Iran. Today we call this land …..wait for it…..IRAQ. NOT Russia.
          The only reason I mention this is that unless you were either A) a tribe of Israel, or B)an enemy of the Tribes of Israel, then you were NOT mentioned, because you would have been irrelevant to the people of Israel.
          And BTW, the word “Torah” directly translates into “Law”
          And what are “Laws” for? To regulate and control the people of course.
          Still think the Bible is about “God”?
          When the Cult of Jesus existed, the Jews were oppressed by Rome. All of their heroes failed to keep Rome out. Jehovah failed to keep Rome out, and the people wanted peace and freedom from Rome. This is exactly what Jesus promised and preached. Nothing to do with “God” and everything about securing the masses. This was needed, for as a cult they would have been hunted down and killed as enemies of the state. The numbers involved were much too large for such a thing. However, people being people and doing what people do, they nailed him to a cross instead of a criminal. Rome entertained with blood, and the Jews were their top subscribers. When Rome saw the numbers, they backed off from the death sentence and made the people choose. This was to stop them from rebelling.
          After the crucifixion, the cult grew, much to the dismay of Rome. However, Rome had been controlling people for a long time and knew that if the assimilated instead of destroying this growing cult that they could lay down the roots of control for another long period of time.
          That control still exists today, as does the Roman Empire. Today, we call them the Roman Catholic Church.
          And that’s all for todays history lesson. Remember Kids, the “Torah” (First 5 books of OT) literally translates into “The Law”. God does not need laws, for whom could claim control over HIM? People need laws. For people need to control other people.
          Break the 2000 year old spell and open your eyes. God did give us a great many things. However, it was the JEWS that gave us the Bible. Moses himself wrote the laws based on existing EGYPTION laws. (research ancient Egyptian religions, they changed on the whim of the Pharaohs) One dynasty its one God, another its a Pantheon. That’s how it was, and it was chaotic.

          • Carolyn

            Aha ! Since you mentioned Babylon which was formerly called BABEL, ( Genesis 11:9 ), then you have to know that God does exist, because the Tower of Babel was being built into the heavens, so that the people would make a name for themselves ! ( Genesis 11:1 – 4 ). Babel was founded by Nimrod. ( Genesis 10:8 – 11 ). Well, God and His Son ( Jesus ) came down from heaven and confused the language, ( Genesis 11:7 ), so that the building would not be completed, and then He scattered the people all over the earth ! ( Genesis 11:8 ). Yes, Jesus had pre-human existence,( Genesis 1:26 ), because He lived in heaven with His Father God ( John 6:38 ; John 6:62 ; John 8:23 ; John 17:5, 24 ), before coming to earth in the flesh ! ( John 1:14 ). Jesus was God’s first creation, before the world was found. ( Proverbs 8:22 – 30 ; Colossians 1:15 ; John 17:24 ). Jesus IS before Abraham was ! ( John 8:58 ). Abraham is gone, but Jesus is alive in heaven seated to God’s right hand ! ( Luke 22:69 ; Acts 7:55 ; Romans 8:34 ). He shall return. ( Matthew 24:29, 30 ; Matthew 25:31 ).

          • Carolyn

            BABYLON was formerly called Babel. Babylon was loacted along the Euphrates River on the plains of Shinar ( Genesis 10:10 ; Genesis 11:2 ), )approximately 870 km ( 540 miles ), east of Jerusalem and some 80 km ( 50 miles ) south of Bagdad, Iraq. It was founded by Nimrod ( Genesis 10:8 – 11 ), and it was mans’ first political empire. Its construction came to an halt ( when God came down and confused the language .. . . Genesis 11:7 ). Later generations of builders came and went. Hammurabi enlargened the city, strengthened it, and made it the capital of the Babylonian empire under Semitic rule. The Chaldean Nabopolassar founded a new dynasty in Babylon. His son Nebuchadnezzar II completed the restoration and brought the city to its greatest glory. ( Daniel 4:30 ). It continued as the capital of the third world power until the night of October 5, 539 B.C.E.( Gregorian calendar ), when Babylon fell to the invading Medo-Persian army under control of Cyrus the Great. Well- l – l – l , it was CYRUS whom God said would rescue the Jews who were held captive ( Jeremiah 25:3 – 12 ) in Babylon for 70 years. ( Isaiah 44:27 ; Isaiah 45:1, 4, 13 ; Ezra 1:1, 2 ; Ezra 5:13 ; Ezra 6:3, 14 ). Note: a small portion has been excavated and there is an appearance of chaotic disorder that is strongly evocative of the prophecies of Isaiah ! ( Isaiah13:19, 20 ; Isaiah 21:9 ). P.S. this information is from the book, ” INSIGHT on the Scriptures “, from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and you may be able to obtain it from jw dot org. Glory to God !

            Alexander the Great intended to make Babylon his capital, but he died suddenly in 323 B.C.E. ! Nicator conquered the city in 312 B.C.E. and transported much of its material to the banks of the Tigris for use in building his new capital of Seleucia. However, a settlement of Jews remained in early Christian times, and the apostle Peter visited that settlement. ( 1 Peter 5:13 ). The temple of Bel existed there as late as 75 C.E. ( which was 42 years after Jesus died in 33 C.E. ). About the 4th century C.E., the city appeared to have passed out of existence. It became nothing more than a ” pile of stones “. ( JEREMIAH 51:37 ). Today, Babylon is mounds and ruins, a veritable wasteland. Read also ” Isaiah 13:19, 20 ; Isaiah 21:9 ; Jeremiah 50:1 – 3 ; Jeremiah 51:24, 29, 41 – 49 ; Daniel chapter 5 “. *Note: This information from the book, ” INSIGHT on the Scriptures “, as well as the Scriptures aka ” The New World Translations of th Holy Scriptures “.

      So which verse represents either Russia or Iran ? It mentions Gog of Magog and that Gog will attack Israel ! It seems like God will approve of Gog’s actions ! ( Ezekiel 38:14 – 17 ). However, in the end God’s rage will destroy Gog ! ( Ezekiel 38:18 – 23 ; 39:1 – 6, 11, 12, 15 ). It looks like Israel will be the winner ! Heehee.

    The beginning of the end started when man first walked upright. Even God himself tried to wipe out humanity and failed. We will most certainly die, we all will. As for an apocalypse? Can only be either self-inflicted or due to unpreparedness, such as in an asteroid strike. Why would God bother with destroying mankind when we clearly have it under control?

        Your “bible” was put together by a group of MEN that decided what you should and should not be told. Science is for those whom do work, faith is for those too lazy to find out why. Science put us on the moon. Faith nailed a man to the cross. Science is duplicatable and testable. Faith requires blind leadership followed by blind submission. To ask why is either a sin or not “supposed” to be known. I will take science, and leave your blood soaked faiths for your final judgment. But hey, if god can be justified in wiping out an entire WORLD, then the crusades that you endorse through your faith are just a drop in the bucket. After all, god did so it must be ok, right? Or is he not setting a divine example?

      Blasphemous ! Bite your tongue ! God does not fail at anything ! He wanted to wipe out the complaining and ungreatful Israelites, and begin a new nation with Moses’ offspring, but Moses begged God not to destroy His chosen people ! ( EXODUS 32:10 – 12 ; Deuteronomy 9:13, 14, 25, 26, 29 ). There is nothing too extraordinary for God ! ( Genesis 18:14 ; Matthew 19:26 ; Luke 1:37 ).

        I speak of the Flood, and he did indeed fail, for wickedness still exists within the world. I do not subscribe to the Bi-polar “God” of the Jews, or the “Free Love” God of the Christians. The “God” I answer to is above such silliness.
        And if you think that the entire human race rebooted off of ONE family then you need a lesson or two in what is known as “genetic diversity” They would have all been dead or retarded within two generations. That’s why inbreeding was and is bad, and why only Pharaoh himself could wed his own sister. Even the Egyptian people understood and forbade inbreeding or incest. That “law” carried over with Moses, keeping the “good” laws and disregarding the “chaff”
        However, according to Noah, not only was incest practiced, but it was REQUIRED.
        Keep it. That’s all for you. Again, my God is above such silliness. However, if you INSIST that “God” wrote the Bible, then I INSIST on pointing out the “flaws” in a perfect entities “perfect book”
        And since it has flaws, and since God is flawless, then THIS BOOK COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY HIM.
        Case closed.

    Yes it’s happened before, but what makes it significant are the events that took place on the past tetrads that took place on the Jewish Feasts! Just as this one. It wouldn’t be the first or last time God used the heavens, as he has promised, as signs.
