Mark Biltz Accuses John Hagee of Stealing Four Blood Moons Revelation

blood moon

John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, recently released a movie based on his book Four Blood Moons. Charisma News reports:

Four Blood Moons is a theatrical one-night event exploring a rare lunar phenomenon that over the centuries has accompanied both tragedy and triumph for the Jewish people. From Pastor John Hagee’s New York Times best-selling book of the same name (750,000 copies in print from Worthy Publishing), Four Blood Moons is in theaters March 23.

“The heavens are ‘God’s billboard.’ He’s been sending signals to earth, and we haven’t been picking them up,” Hagee says. “Two blood moons, in 2014 and 2015, point to dramatic events in the Middle East and, as a result, changes in the whole world.”…

…Four Blood Moons combines Scripture, science, history and big-screen live action spanning centuries, including previous similar lunar occurrences and the earth-shaking changes around them. It also examines our current four-blood-moon cycle—and its possible meaning for Israel, the Middle East and the world.

An array of historians, religious scholars and commentators appear in Four Blood Moons and offer their insight—filmmaker, speaker and author Dinesh D’Souza; radio host and author Dennis Prager; and noted author and historian David Barton to name just a few.

“A blood moon occurs at a lunar eclipse when the earth comes between the sun and the moon,” Hagee said. “As the sun shines through our atmosphere, it throws a shadow on the moon, making the moon look red.”

Only three times in the past 500 years have four of these blood moons (or tetrads) occurred back to back and on major Jewish holy days. The fourth tetrad began April 15, 2014, on Passover. In October last year, the second blood moon appeared on the Feast of Tabernacles (also known as Sukkot). Blood moons in 2015 land on the same holy days…

…Four Blood Moons examines the biblical passages seemingly connected to these events—in Joel and Acts—where it says the “sun will be darkened” and the moon will appear as blood in advance of God’s world-changing action on earth.

Hagee points out that during this four blood moon cycle, all of which touch on Jewish holy days, a solar eclipse also will occur—a combination of events that will never repeat.

Whatever the results, audiences at Four Blood Moons will see a compelling and entertaining exploration of these spiritual, celestial and historical events. And they will leave the theater convinced that something is about to change that could impact us all.

World Net Daily (WND), home to every right-wing conspiracy writer on the planet,  is accusing Hagee of stealing the Four Blood Moons revelation. One Christian is accusing another Christian of stealing God’s revelation. Shocking! According to WND,  Mark Biltz, pastor of Church of All Nations in Tacoma, Washington, a Christian ministry taking the Torah to the Nations, is the one God gave the revelation to. On March 24, 2015, WND sent Hagee a Demand Letter. In the letter, WND demanded Hagee publicly retract his statements about being the receiver of the Four Blood Moons revelation and reedit the film giving Biltz proper attribution.

Joseph Farah, head wing nut at World Net Daily, had this to say on Sunday:

…Then in 2013, I learned that San Antonio mega-pastor John Hagee was coming out with a book called “Four Blood Moons.” I discussed it with Biltz and learned that the previous year he had entertained Hagee as a speaker at his church, El Shaddai Ministries in Bonney Lake, Washington. Hagee had founded an organization called Christians United for Israel, or CUFI, and Biltz was the Washington state chairman. At that event, Biltz briefed Hagee on the “blood moons phenomenon” and gave him a DVD teaching about it.

When the book came out in 2014, I was eager to read it – as was Biltz. Hagee had consulted with Biltz on the subject after the 2012 event at his church. We were both disappointed that Biltz was nowhere credited with the discovery of the phenomenon, though Hagee did recount his meeting with Biltz and explained, in a roundabout way, that the pastor had inspired the book by asking a question: “Have you ever considered the sun, moon and stars in the study of prophecy?” Hagee never mentioned that Biltz had thoroughly researched the blood moons phenomenon, presented on it over a period of four years on Christian television, spoken at conferences and produced DVD teachings. It had become Biltz’s most well-known accomplishment – his identity, if you will, around the world.

I suggested to Biltz that he write a book on the subject himself. After all, he was the expert. He was the discoverer. We also decided to make a documentary movie about the phenomenon. Both the book and the movie are called “Blood Moons.” Both came out in early 2014.

That would have been the end of the story had Hagee not decided to produce a movie of his own that debuted nationwide in theaters Monday in which he made the following statement: “The thing that compelled me to write the ‘Four Blood Moons’ was when I discovered the scientific fact NASA was pointing out that it happened in 1492 and it happened in 1948 and it happened in 1967 and it was going to happen in 2015.”…

…Biltz was interviewed for the movie and told the story of his own discovery of the blood moons phenomenon, but it was not included in the film. Instead, to any casual viewer of the movie, it seemed to me and Biltz, Hagee was representing himself as the discoverer.

One of my reporters was already assigned to do a story on the “Four Blood Moons” movie and had set up an interview with Hagee to discuss it. I asked him to change the direction of the questioning to focus on how Hagee got to write about and produce a major movie about the phenomenon. I also specifically asked him to explain Biltz’s role in his interest.

Hagee told the story of meeting Mark Biltz at the CFI event in his church in 2012 in a way that was shockingly similar to his explanation in the book – avoiding any mention of Biltz’s voluminous research on the subject and the fact that he had discovered it and thoroughly chronicled it over a four-year period prior to their meeting. In fact, Mark Biltz had become known alternately as “the blood moons pastor” and “Blood Moons Biltz.”

Pressed for more details on whether he or Biltz discovered the phenomenon, Hagee said he got the idea by studying the Bible and researching NASA’s historical charts of blood moon tetrads. There was no further mention of Biltz, and Hagee again used the “discovery” word: “It dawned on me that God is using the heavens as a billboard. And when I got on the Internet and discovered these four blood moons that had happened and would happen, I literally levitated out of my seat.”

Biltz and I decided it was time to clear the air with Hagee. It seemed to both of us that he was moving closer and closer to hijacking Biltz’s discovery with his immense audience and impressive marketing machine.

According to Charisma News, they have a copy of a letter sent to WND by Hagee spokesman Ari Morgenstern. In the letter, Morgenstern detailed the following errors:

…the errors are: (1) an allegation that Hagee asserted he was the “discoverer” of the four blood moons phenomenon; (2) an allegation that Hagee does not credit Biltz for his relevant efforts; (3) an implication that Hagee took the term “God’s billboard” from Biltz; (4) an allegation that Hagee used inaccurate dates in his discussions of previous tetrads (5) an implication that Biltz is not prominently featured in Hagee’s Four Blood Moons film; and (6) an allegation that Hagee supports so-called dual-covenant theology.

Based on these errors, Morgenstern is asking WND to correct the errors in the aforementioned articles. Morgenstern stated:

“Under normal circumstances, given their complete inaccuracy, I would expect both pieces to be removed with the publisher’s apologies, but as [Joseph] Farah is the driving force behind this narrative, the publisher of the outlet that posted the pieces, and WND has not even bothered to provide readers with the name of the author of the pieces, we’ve strayed quite far from normal circumstances.”

“While these facts clearly call into question WND‘s objectivity, they pale in comparison to the conflict of interest associated with Farah’s apparent financial stake in advancing this false narrative. Not surprisingly, in the piece, WND repeatedly advertises and links to purchase options of Biltz’s relevant book and film—which as the WND piece mentions, Farah is, respectively, publisher and producer (relevant screenshots are available upon request).”

As I read this story, I found myself having a vision of dueling prophets, each certain God gave to them the Four Blood Moons revelation. Prophets, walk forty paces, turn and fire. May the best prophet win. Of course, this story has little to do with revelations or prophets and everything to do with PROFIT and PREEMINENCE.

I ask, what would Jesus do?

Just another amusing day in the Evangelical Christian Ghetto. Personally, I am looking forward to the next blood moon, or what we call here in the Midwest a full moon or harvest moon. The next time the moon is large and orange in the sky, I plan to be outside with my camera and tripod hoping to shoot the moon in all its glory. Too bad Hagee, Farah, and Biltz will be too busy arguing over who owns the rights to the show to enjoy it.

    When there are battles over things like this going on, it’s hard to figure which side to cheer for, as both sides seem to be composed of stupid people arguing about really bad concepts of cause and effect.

    I guess we’ll need to opt for good seats and stock up on the popcorn.

    Bruce, usually the Harvest moon is the September moon and that will be the best eclipse of the tetrad, but if you get up early enough you can see the next eclipse on (the morning of) April 4th. In the midwest it’ll set eclipsed though. Still a good photo op, since you can have the eclipsed moon near objects on the horizon for a more personalized eclipse shot.
    As for the evangelists fighting for credit, hmm ok but what EXACTLY are they trying to predict? Turmoil for Israel? You don’t need a lunar eclipse to portend that! The fact that the eclipses occur on Jewish holidays, which are typically set for the full moon AND the Jewish calendar is lunar to boot is not an ominous coincidence anymore than Easter mysically occuring every Sunday. I’d like to see better predictions from the Televangelists, then after nothing happens the fingers start pointing the other way.
    Incidently, the ONLY reason eclipses are seen as interesting is that the moon’s orbit is tipped 5° from the Earth so eclipses only occur at the node of the angle. This makes them seem rare, though there are always 4 or so each year. On Jupiter they occur every time. It’s just shadows.

      I wish the people making up various “prophecies” about these astronomical events would, for once, take a bit of interest in the science of astronomy. Learn about how these events happen, (Thanks, Troy) understand the timetables and distances involved, and see the vastness of the universe as it is, rather than needing to put themselves and their beliefs at the center of it.

      And while I’m wishing for the impossible, I’d like a million dollars and a rainbow pony…

    There are also four solar eclipses that accompany the four blood moons according to NASA charts. The first Solar eclipse is 14 days after the first blood moon. the second solar eclipse is 15 days after the second blood moon, then the pattern changes, we now have a solar eclipse 15 days before the third blood moon and then a solar eclipse 15 days before the last blood moon. The pattern changes at center line of the blood moons. Just for the four blood moons to fall on the same Jewish holidays Passover, Sukkot Passover Sukkot just once is once in 273 ,000 years. Throw in the four pairs of solar eclipse linked to a blood moon makes it even more impossible. This was discovered by myself but i don’t have millions of dollars to proclaim it. NASA charts will prove my point. Just look up a blood moon on their lunar chart and then go to a solar chart and look for a solar eclipse within 14-15 days of the blood moon event.
    The first two solar eclipses are not on Jewish holidays, The third eclipse is on the Jewish Religious New Year and the last solar eclipse is on the Feast of Trumpets. Solar eclipses are for the gentiles Lunar eclipses are for the Jewish nation.

      The fact that there are solar eclipses within 2 weeks of lunar eclipses isn’t improbable, in fact it is a near certainty. The new moon that precedes or succeeds will almost always produce an eclipse so long as the window for the eclipse season hasn’t closed. The fact that all the lunar eclipses (as defined by this being a tetrad) were total means the solar eclipses will likley have similar characteristics as well.

    Four Blood Moons and two Solar Eclipses 2014 – 2015

    Another End-of-the-World Prophecy?

    You might have heard that the lunar eclipse on September 28, 2015 will complete a series of six “Signs in the Sky”.

    Will it have an effect on your life that a tetrad of four total lunar eclipses (Blood Moon) and two solar eclipses (Black Sun) align with significant Set-Apart (i.e. holy) dates of YHVH , the Eternal ONE in 2014 through to 2015?

    Many are convinced that this is not a coincidence, but that these eclipse clusters will turn out to be very significant harbingers of things to come.

    However, the last lunar eclipse on 28 September 2015 should not be identified as the apocalyptic blood moon described in Scripture passages like Revelation 6:12-17. These eclipses are not the cosmic signs of the 6th seal of the Book of Revelation in the Bible!

    The ‘Signs in the Sky’ in 2014 and 2015 are harmless Foreshadows, as a Warning, pointing to the Big, Earth and Heaven shaking Events which will occur at some stage in the “Day of YHVH”.

    They carry a significant message for those who have an ear to hear. Jesus foretold that powerful prophecies would smite a clueless and unprepared world. There is a timeline and an exact order of prophetic events before “the Battle of Armageddon” and Christ’s Return. But understand. When these final events arrive, it will already be too late for you to heed Yahshua Messiah’s words.

    ARMAGEDDON – 2017?
    Together, watching the “mysterious” signs of our days and studying the records in the Bible (e.g. Matt 24), will give insight that 2017 CE will be a year out of the ordinary!

    In 2017 CE, 6000 years will have passed since the creation of Adam, and the last 1000 years of the “7000 year Agenda of GOD” will be ushered in.

    The 7000 Year Plan of YHVH is not a new age concept.
    You come across this teaching, which is derived from the Bible, already in the Books of Irenaeus (Bishop of the early Church, 130 CE – 202 CE.

    GOD – who controls all things – reveals in the Scriptures that at ‘the time appointed,’ the “End Time World Order” will be destroyed and Jesus Christ (Heb.: Yahshua Messiah) will take over and establish His Millennial Kingdom.

    Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our GOD, and of his Messiah; and he shall reign forever and ever.

    But when will this happen? Are there any clues in the Holy Bible, which might lead to the year and maybe even to the season of His return (1.Thess 5:1, 4)? The answer is YES!

    To be able to uncover GOD’S “hidden” message, we have to start recognizing that the Bible contains accurate data. The Holy Bible is not a fairy-tale book, as some in the world try to make us believe!

    As a matter of fact, when you bring together the evidence contained in the “Old” Testament and the “New” Testament, you are able to count the years from the creation of Adam (3983 BCE ) to the Millennium of Jesus Christ (2017 CE).

      It just breaks my heart to see how the Devil has taken God’s eclipses and is trying to explain them away. I say, pull your kids out of school and run for your life to the church basement. God has big things in store for this coming age. I am not free to make them public just yet but they will involve Israel and America too! Holly booba longo bubba bee do woo-woo!

      I enjoyed reading your comment. I see how what happens on the sun and moon’s course is predictable. I believe the Father does have a set time for the Lords Day because God tells us, if He has to come early , because of how we have treated the earth, than He will destroy everything, nothing will remain. ( The fact that nothing has happened (yet)that we couldn’t predict is encouraging. I personally am thankful for Bice President Gore for that! Personally Iam learning all about the, ” evangelical ghetto” as the author of the article had written. Lol!
      I have knowledge of a lot of Prophesies that have been fulfilled that I I am having a hard time connecting with any Padtors about, (and they certainly aren’t talking about them in church). Very frustrating!

    Here’s an idea: Put Blitz in a cage with Hagee and have them slug it out! That would be far more seemly, as well as honorable, than the charade that either of them are true scholars of Scripture…
