Sign of the Four Blood Moons


Sign of the Four Blood Moons

What is a Blood Moon?

By Irvin Baxter


Four-Blood-Moons-EndtimeA lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and the moon. This blocks the sun’s rays from reflecting off the moon as normal. However, some of the sun’s rays curve around the earth causing the moon to appear red during a total eclipse. Because of its vivid color, a total lunar eclipse is often referred to by NASA as a Blood Red Moon. The occurrence of blood moons is quite common, normally happening at least twice per year. Most of us have seen the moon when its appearance has changed to red. When four blood moons happen in close succession, NASA refers to this as a tetrad. Tetrads are rather rare, only taking place fifty-five times since 1 AD.

The Teaching of the 4 Blood Moons

The teaching of the four blood moons has recently captivated the attention of the religious world. This teaching states that, when four consecutive blood moons fall on Jewish feast days, a major event affecting the Jewish people will occur in close proximity to that time.


This phenomenon of four consecutive blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days has only occurred ten times since 1 AD and only three times since 1492 AD. The three times since 1492 are as follows:

» Tetrad of 1493-1494

» Tetrad of 1949-1950

» Tetrad of 1967-1968

Major events affecting the Jewish people have occurred in close proximity to all three of these tetrads.


The Spanish Inquisition Took Place in 1492 Just Before the Tetrad of 1493-1494

In 1492, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain gave the Jewish population a mere four months to convert to Catholicism or leave the country. It is estimated that between 165,000 and 400,000 Jews fled the country at this time. As many as 50,000 decided to stay, converting to Roman Catholicism.


The Spanish Inquisition sought to punish Jews who had converted to Christianity but were not really “sincere” in their conversions. Torture was used to elicit confessions from these “false converts”. After confessing, many of them were then burned at the stake.


The Inquisition was cruel beyond belief. First you tell people they have to convert or die. When they do convert, you place them under severe torture to test the sincerity of their conversions. Once they confess under duress, then you burn them at the stake because they are not true Catholics. These are the types of inhumane horrors that were inflicted upon thousands of Jews during the Spanish Inquisition.


Was Christopher Columbus Jewish?

Many historians now believe that Christopher Columbus was secretly Jewish. They believe his voyage to the west in 1492 was his way of escaping the Spanish Inquisition of that year and therefore resulted in his discovery of America.


In Simon Weisenthal’s book, “Sails of Hope”, he argues that Columbus’ voyage was motivated by a desire to find a safe haven for the Jews in light of their expulsion from Spain.


The studies of Carol Delaney of Stanford University led her to believe that Columbus was a deeply religious man whose purpose was to sail to Asia to obtain gold in order to finance a crusade to take back Jerusalem and rebuild the Jews’ holy temple.


Columbus’ voyage was not, as is commonly believed, funded by the deep pockets of Queen Isabella, but rather by two Jews who converted to Catholicism to avoid death. Louis de Santangel and Gabriel Sanchez advanced an interest free loan of 17,000 ducats from their own pockets to help pay for the voyage. Another prominent Jew, Don Isaac Abrabanel, who was a rabbi and Jewish statesman, also donated towards the voyages of Christopher Columbus.


Is it any surprise that the United States has the largest Jewish population on earth, standing at 6.6 million? Israel presently has 6.1 million Jews living within her borders.


The Nation of Israel Reborn on May 14, 1948 Just Before the Tetrad of 1949-1950

After the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD, Jews were driven into exile. For the next 1,878 years, the Jewish people were sifted through the nations of the earth. Yet, they retained their identity.


After Hitler’s horrible holocaust during World War II, the Jews were finally granted a homeland by the nations of the world. On May 14, 1948, the modern state of Israel was born.


The City of Jerusalem was Reunited During Tetrad of 1967-1968

God said many times in the Old Testament that He would place His name in Jerusalem. During their 2,000 years of exile, the Jewish people turned their faces toward Jerusalem three times each day praying for the restoration of Jerusalem and the rebuilding of their temple. On June 7, 1967 the Jordanians launched an attack against Israel and west Jerusalem. Israel counter-attacked driving Jordan out of east Jerusalem, out of Judea-Samaria, and back into its own land across the Jordan River. Jerusalem was undivided and under Jewish control for the first time since the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD.


Three Tetrads on Feast Days = Major Jewish Events

The only three tetrads matching feast days in the last 500 years have all fallen remarkably close to major events in Jewish history as we have explained above.

Now, it’s about to happen for a fourth time!


Four Blood Moons Just Ahead

Four blood moons on Jewish feast days are getting ready to appear for the fourth time in the last 500 years. According to NASA, they will occur on:

» April 15, 2014—Passover

» October 8, 2014—Feast of Tabernacles

» April 4, 2015—Passover

» September 28, 2015—Feast of Tabernacles


Some prophecy teachers are declaring boldly that this tetrad just ahead signals that something is getting ready to happen, which will change the world forever.


Should We Even Pay Attention to the Moon and the Stars?

As Christians, we should not practice or put our faith in astrology. However, God has at times used the heavens for sending signs to mankind.


In Genesis 1:14, 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:” God specifically said, “Let them be for signs.”


We also know that the wise men were led to Jesus by a star. This is recorded in Matthew 2:1-2, “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”


Herod inquired of the chief priests and the scribes where Messiah was to be born according to the prophecies. He was told that Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem. Herod relayed the information to the Wise Men.


Matthew 2:9-10 says, “When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”


The Prophecy of the Moon being Turned Into Blood

There are several prophecies foretelling that the moon will be turned to blood in the endtime.


Joel 2:30-31 states: “And I will show wonders in the heavens 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 great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”


Revelation 6:12 also prophesies that the moon will become as blood: “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.”


Will the Moon Literally be Turned to Blood?

It is not reasonable to believe the entire moon will be turned into blood when the prophecy is fulfilled. The scriptures undoubtedly mean that the moon will take on the appearance of blood.


What can We Expect to Happen?

Four blood moons are going to occur between April 15, 2014 and September 28, 2015, and they are going to happen on Jewish feast days. If the pattern of the last three tetrads continues, then we can expect some major event for the Jewish people.


Is There a Big Event on the Horizon?

One of the greatest prophetic fulfillments in the last 2,000 years lies just ahead of us. The Bible prophesies that a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians will soon be signed.


US Secretary of State John Kerry has been working diligently since July 30, 2013 to reach a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians. He has set April 29, 2014 as the deadline for reaching an agreement.


What will This Peace Agreement do?

According to the biblical prophecy, the signing of a Middle East peace agreement will mark the beginning of the Final Seven Years to Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus to the earth.

» Under the agreement, the Antichrist and the International Community will recognize Israel’s right to a homeland in the Holy Land.
» A Palestinian state will be created in the West Bank, which is the biblical area of Judea. There are presently 650,000 Jews living in Judea.
» Many of the Jews presently living in the parts of Judea that will become the new Palestinian state will decide to remain in their homes living as a Jewish minority in Palestine.
» The dispute over control of the Temple Mount will be solved by placing it under a sharing arrangement between Muslims and Jews.
» Israel will build her Third Temple on the Temple Mount without disturbing the Dome of the Rock or the Al Aqsa Mosque.
» Israel’s temple will be completed during the first three and one-half years after the signing of the agreement.
» Halfway through the final seven years, the Antichrist will stand in the Temple claiming to be Messiah and God. The scriptures call this the Abomination of Desolation.


Another Jewish Holocaust Ahead!

When the world realized the magnitude of six million Jews perishing in Hitler’s horrible holocaust, the response was universal. “Never again! We can never let anything like this happen—ever again!”

However, as incomprehensible as it may seem, another Jewish holocaust lies just ahead. Jesus Himself gave the prophecy in the most famous prophecy chapter of the entire Bible.

Matthew 24:15-18, 21 records the prophecy:

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes…For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

As previously explained, the prophesied peace agreement will create a Palestinian state in Judea. 650,000 Jews live in Judea today. Some of them will remain in Judea, living as a Jewish minority in the newly created Palestinian state.


Halfway through the final seven years at the time of the Abomination of Desolation, the Palestinians will begin to slaughter the Jews living among them. Jesus said the attack would be so sudden that, if a person were on the housetop, he should not come down to get his clothes. Just hit the ground running! Jesus said this would be a time of “great tribulation”. Read more about Another Jewish Holocaust Ahead! »


We Must Warn Them!

The Jews of Judea do not realize the extreme danger that lies just ahead. They don’t believe in Jesus; consequently, they don’t study the New Testament.


Yet Jesus obviously wanted the Jews of Judea to be warned. He spent several verses of His Olivet prophecy telling the Jews where the persecution will take place and specifically when it will take place.


In spite of Jesus’ desire to warn the Jewish people of the coming holocaust in Judea, they remain totally oblivious to the extreme danger that lies just ahead. They are going to be blindsided by the slaughter that will belaunched against them by the Palestinians—unless we warn them!


This is our chance to help the Jewish people. They gave us our Bible, and they gave us our Messiah. Now we can warn them in this hour of their most urgent need!


How can We Warn Them?

There are 2.27 million homes in the nation of Israel. We plan to send an Endtime magazine to every Israeli home so that no one will miss the warning.

The magazine front cover will say:






Goal of the Magazine

» To explain the prophecy of the Final Seven Years in easy-to-understand terms.
» Dedicate a section of the magazine to those in Judea. If they listen to our warning, they will escape the coming slaughter. Not one person who heeds the warning will become a victim of the terrible slaughter prophesied by Jesus! » » Sadly, those who don’t listen will be killed in the coming holocaust.
» Advertise our daily television program available worldwide on the Internet.
» Introduce our website where they can hear more teaching about the Final Seven Years and what lies ahead.
» Offer a free subscription to our prophecy e-newsletter.
» Tell them about our Jerusalem Prophecy College in downtown Jerusalem and how they can enroll.
» Advertise our 14-lesson prophecy series—Understanding the Endtime.

Our ultimate goal will be to teach the Jewish people the prophecies of the Bible so they can know what to do. 1 Chronicles 12:32 says, “And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…”


When the Jewish holocaust in Judea takes place, the Jews who heeded our warning and escaped will know that it was the prophecy of Jesus that saved their lives. Many of them will then be ready to hear about eternal life through Jesus. Zechariah 12:7 prophesies a great revival for the Jews of Judea during this time!


Editor’s note: At the end of this article, we’ll tell you how you can help warn the Jews at this time of their greatest need.


What does the Bible Say?

We have already explained the teaching of the Four Blood Moons that has captivated the imaginations of so many people. Now let’s take a look at the teaching of the Four Blood Moons in light of scripture.


What does the Bible say about the moon turning to blood, and when it is prophesied to happen?


When will the Moon Turn to Blood?

Earlier in this article we referred to the prophecy of Joel about the moon being turned into blood. Let’s look at it again:


And I will show wonders in the heavens 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 great and the terrible day of the LORD come.


In Joel 2:30-31, Joel prophesied that the moon would be turned into blood before the great and t terrible “day of the LORD”.


When is the “Day of the Lord”?

The Prophet Zechariah referred to the “day of the Lord” in Zechariah 14:1-4,

Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

This prophecy describes the coming Battle of Armageddon. God said, “I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle.” Armageddon will take place seven years after the signing of the Palestinian-Israeli peace agreement.


The world government armies will invade Israel in an attempt to force Israel to give up sovereignty over its capital of Jerusalem. When Israel is on the brink of defeat at the hands of the international forces, Jesus will return to earth and fight for Israel. The prophecy says it this way, “Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations.”


Verse four states concerning Jesus, “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives.” This describes the personal return of Jesus Christ to the earth.


So, when did Zechariah say that the “day of the Lord” would be? The day of the Lord takes place at the time of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus to earth. The Battle of Armageddon takes place at the end of the Great Tribulation.


The Moon Becomes as Blood at the 6th Seal

“And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.” Revelation 6:12


This passage specifically states that the moon will become as blood at the time of the 6th Seal.


When is the 6th Seal?

We can tell when the sixth seal is opened by the events that happen at the time of its opening. Revelation 6:14-17 describes these events.


And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?


Notice that the heavens will depart like a scroll at the opening of the seal. This obviously is describing the Second Coming of Jesus because the men of the earth will cry, “Hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne.”


Since it is prophesied that the moon will turn to blood at the time of the Sixth Seal, then we can conclude that it will happen at the time of the Second Coming and the Battle of Armageddon.


Jesus was Much More Specific in Matthew 24

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:29-31

Jesus said the moon would be turned into blood immediately after the Great Tribulation. He also stated that the people of the earth would mourn when they saw the Son of man coming. This is obviously referring to the time of the Second Coming as described in the Sixth Seal.


Does This Totally Discredit the Teaching of the Four Blood Moons?

As we have seen, the scriptures clearly say that the moon will be turned into blood after the Great Tribulation and at the time of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Jesus to earth. This being true, the prophecies about the moon being turned to blood cannot refer to the four blood moons of the last 500 years.


However, should the teaching of the four blood moons be totally ignored?


3 out of 3 Can’t be Ignored

» There were four blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days in 1493-1494. The Spanish Inquisition occurred in 1492.

» There were four blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days in 1949-1950. The rebirth of Israel took place in 1948.

» There were four blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days in 1967-1968. The reunification of Jerusalem happened in 1967.

Four blood moons have coincided with Jewish feast days only these three times in the last 500 years. Every single time, a major event affecting the Jewish people has occurred.

3 out of 3 in the last 500 years cannot be totally ignored.


The Next Four Blood Moons

The next tetrad coupled with Jewish feast days will be April 15, 2014 – September 28, 2015. Israelis and Palestinians, led by US Secretary of State John Kerry, began peace negotiations on July 30, 2013. Negotiations have been ongoing since that time.


When the negotiations were launched, Kerry promised Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the negotiations would reach an agreement in nine months. Together, they committed to achieve a peace agreement by April 29, 2014.


Will an Agreement be Signed by April 29, 2014?

Whether we place any credibility to the teaching of the Four Blood Moons or not, there is going to be an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.


If this agreement creates a Palestinian state in the West Bank (Judea) leaving a Jewish minority there, and if it places the Temple Mount under a sharing arrangement with international supervision, then the final seven years to Armageddon will begin at that time.


The only question is: Will it be signed by April 29, 2014? John Kerry says, “Yes!” Whether he is right or wrong about the timing, a peace agreement is definitely coming. It’s prophesied in the Bible and the prophecies always come to pass.


This won’t be a Final Agreement

The prophecy of Daniel 9:27 says the peace agreement will be a seven-year agreement. This let’s us know that it will not be a final agreement. Some issues will apparently be left unresolved until later.


Under the interim agreement, a Palestinian state will be created. Those Jews who refuse to leave their homes in Judea will be allowed to stay as a Jewish minority living in the Palestinian state.


The Temple Mount will be placed under a sharing arrangement so that all can worship there. But the conflict over the city of Jerusalem will remain unresolved. Jerusalem will remain under Israel’s control until the Battle of Armageddon. We know this from the prophecy of Zechariah 14:2,


For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.



The month the prophesied peace agreement is signed, we plan to send an Endtime magazine to every home in Israel. There are 2.27 million of them. The cover of the magazine will deliver its message in no uncertain terms: WARNING! Final 7 years to Armageddon just began! What to do? See inside!


One article in the magazine will be a special warning to the Jews living in Judea. All who heed our warning will escape unharmed. Those who don’t will be slaughtered at the time of the Abomination of Desolation. It is God’s will for them to escape. That’s the reason Jesus gave them a warning in His most famous prophecy.


The Coming Jewish Revival

When those who believed the warning and escaped with their lives see their brethren who didn’t heed the warning being killed, they will realize it was the prophecy of Jesus that saved their lives. They will then be prepared to hear about eternal life through Jesus Christ.


This will give birth to a revival among the Jews of Judea. A great revival started in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. God is going to do it again!


The prophecy of the coming Judean revival is given in Zechariah 12:7, “The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.”


All Israel shall be Saved

Romans 11:25-26 tells us that all Israel shall be saved: “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”


However, God specifically said that He would save the tents of Judah first. The first wave of Jewish revival will come at the time of the Abomination of Desolation.


The second wave will come at the time of Armageddon when Jesus returns to earth at the Mount of Olives. The Jews know that their Messiah will plant His feet on the Mount of Olives when He comes to earth. Zechariah 14:4 clearly teaches this.


In the heat of the Battle of Armageddon, their Messiah will descend from heaven, touching down on the Mount of Olives. The Jews will know their Messiah has come to save them from the invading armies of the Antichrist.


They will rush out to meet Him, falling down to worship Him. When they do, they will notice He has scars in His feet and in His hands. Zechariah 13:6 says: “And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”


Suddenly, their eyes will be opened. They will say, “So you’re Jesus.” He will reply, “Yes, I am Jesus.”


Zechariah 12:10 says they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son. They will bow in bitter repentance asking Jesus to forgive them. And, of course, He will forgive them.


It is at this time that Romans 11:26 will be fulfilled, “And so all Israel shall be saved.” Think of it! Between the first wave of revival among those of Judea and the rest of Israel turning to Jesus at Armageddon, all Israel will be saved during the final seven years.


What has God Called Us To Do?

God has called Endtime Ministries to warn the Jewish people and to help them know what to do. They gave us our Bible, and they gave us our Messiah.


Now we have a chance to help them in their time of greatest need. We can inform them of what is coming and teach them what they should do about it.


A Magazine in Every Home in Israel

We want to put an Endtime magazine in every mailbox in Israel within 30 days of the signing of the prophesied Middle East peace agreement.


Another Jewish holocaust is coming. But Jews can escape the coming holocaust if we will warn them.


The Israel Project

God told Abraham in Genesis 12:3, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curseth thee.” This is our chance to bless the Jewish people at this time of their greatest need!


Are We Sure the Final 7 years will Begin on April 29, 2014?

No. We can’t be sure the final seven years will begin on April 29, 2014. That is the date John Kerry has set. It could take longer to get the deal done, or it could happen sooner.


But we are absolutely certain a peace agreement is going to be signed. It’s prophesied in the Bible, and the prophecies always come to pass!


We Can’t Wait To Act!

If they do get the treaty signed by April 29, 2014, we must be ready! If we miss this opportunity, we won’t get a second chance. So the need is urgent!

All we need to accomplish this prophetic goal is for 1,800 people to contribute $500 or more to the Israel Project.

All who donate $500 or more to the Israel Project will receive as a gift of appreciation our DVD, “Israel’s Future…According to Bible Prophecy.”

To help save the Jews from the coming holocaust, simply call 1-866-310-5010 or donate online.

The Jews gave us our Bible. They gave us our Messiah. Now we have an opportunity to help them as they move toward the Battle of Armageddon! LET’S DO IT!

  1. God Himself will NOT be happy at all with the creation of the Peace agreement. Because it will require the DIVIDING of BOTH ISRAEL & JERUSALEM! NOW READ JOEL 3:2! However, I’m STILL a PRE-TRIB Rapture believer According to Revelation 3:10.

  2. I have been fascinated by Bible prophesy since I was about 7 years old. As much as I have always loved reading and studying it, I have never understood it as well as I have since I started listening to your podcasts and reading EndTime magazine!! Then I ordered the 14 DVDs and some others that sounded interesting and I am so hooked on all of the teachings and how you explain them that I can’t get enough of it!!! I love 5:01 pm every day when the new podcast is on my iPad!!! Thanks so much for all of your teaching Irvin!! I plan to continue to support your ministry in any way that I can!!!! The end is NOW!!!

      • There isn’t a link that expands on the “sign of the four blood moons”. It just ends with a explanation of what a blood moon is.

        • Hello Sherrye, I am unable to recreate what you are experiencing. I have tried the page in every browser and the instructions show up without fail. What browser are you using? If you happen to be in Internet Explorer (IE) we would recommend trying a different browser like Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari. Most issues are found inside of IE. I hope this helps. Let us know if we can assist further. God Bless.

  3. Waiting for DVD ordered the 8th. ALL prophecies are falling into place. REPENT & love thy neighbor follow Christ Jesus

  4. I find it quite interesting that these specifically fall on Passover and Sukkot. Book ends to the story of Exodus.

  5. this first blood moon happens to be appearing on our nation only. i am curious to see what part of the regions the other blood moons will hit. i know that america is under god’s judgment. i believe that something terrible is going to happen to us because america has turned away from god.

  6. I don’t participate in facebook, twitter or google plus and have no desire to do so, so I guess I won’t be able to see “the rest of the story.”

  7. Irvin, Thank you so much for standing strong as a true prohet of God in these last days! I’ve known you for many years & have fellowshipped with you way back during the Purvis/Albany days! Your ministry has grown so much, yet has always remained steadied toward giving your listeners a better & clearer understanding of what to expect as well as prepare for in these last days! Anyhow, I will ALWAYS trust a prophet of God that can first rightly divide the Word for his own salvation. YES, We serve the same God as well as share the same Pentecostal faith! Keep it up Bishop! Come back & visit with us at Landmark in Lafayette soon!

  8. I am very grateful to End Time Ministries for having the courage to proclaim the Truth. They try to foster a sense of hope and joy in knowing that Our Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior who will cleans our souls with His Precious Blood and offer each of us a mansion in His Heavenly Kingdom. I love my Jesus because he continually blesses me and has made me whole again.


    • Do you know what happened to the people of Israel the last time there were 4 blood moons?

      Do you know what country was discovered, and what happened to the people of Israel THE TIME BEFORE THAT when there were 4 Blood Moons???

      I CANT WAIT TO HEAR YOUR ANSWER!!! I really can’t!

    • Not again for another600years. Wow. I am getting up tonight to hopefully see the first blood moon. I feel excited to live in these times.

  10. How can we share something we haven’t viewed? Is that even wise and biblical? Paul praised the Bereans for not taking his word as truth, and E.M. wants us to share before viewing?

    Very disappointed. Sorry, I can’t put my seal of approval and tell everyone to watch something I haven’t even seen myself. That’s foolish.

    • I, also, do not like the “Share and read the rest approach.” I do not like social media and do not want to be coerced into using it so that I may read your articles. Please reconsider this tactic.

    • You do not have to share it publicly prior to reading . . . You have alternative options with Facebook sharing. Check out the settings. If you don’t like what you read, don’t make it public. If you do, please make it public.

  11. STOP being critical & complaining.We are blessed to have access to the concise & very well clarified teaching of End Time Ministries! I have never had anyone in my lifetime make the complex imagery of prophecy so easy to understand,as has Irvin Baxter,nor taught in such a way that I would want to actually connect the dots to reach the meaning.His explanation of Daniel 7:4 even impressed my pastor….and yet the symbolism was sooo obvious as to be overlooked.The wormwood discussion was actually intriguing! We are to lift up God’s anointed not criticize,unless they were misleading people with lies or deception.THAT is NOT the case with this ministry.

  12. Thank you Endtime for this article. I appreciate your consistent honesty concerning current events and end time prophesy. Irvin Baxter has always maintained a high level of humility and class in his endeavor to explain Bible prophecy.

    • yes it is wrong in reference to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are to preach the word, be instant in season and out of season. God requires a tenth of our substance in tithes. That is done by an individual if he or she is in obedience to God’s Word. But when I teach a Bible study in the prisons or anywhere else; or minister to anyone in obedience to God’s Word, and frankly because I want to serve God, it is not for monetary gain or to cover my “expenses”. God Himself will supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory.

      • I will also note that I have met Mr Baxter and I have read his material. He does go to great expense to bring these truths to all who will consider his teachings. What he may bring in in sales of material will in no wise cover the expense that his ministry generates to make these teachings available, but I do know he understands the concept that God will supply all his needs according to His riches in Glory, just as He does for me when I go into the prisons.

    • Thanks for your comment, Whitney. We actually make this entire lesson for free online and on TV. You can see the schedule at It will air for a month or longer for free of charge. This costs us tens of thousands of dollars to produce and make available, so we make the lesson available for purchase to help fund the project. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

      • That’s what I tell my negative friends about religion. Iam buying this DVD & I bought pastor hagee s the coming four blood moon I even sponsor a Jewish person immigrate back to Israel ifcj

  13. It appears that each of the 3 preceding significant tetrads _followed_ a major conflict and resolution for Israel, they weren’t _signs_ of something to come. If this 4th tetrad is going to fall in line with the 3 preceding it, it looks like we have less than 12 hours for a major conflict and resolution to happen. This is highly unlikely to happen.

    • We love when folks comment, but commenting isn’t required, Vorian. We certainly want you to comment, and we would love for you to read the whole article. Simply follow the prompting above and you will have access to the entire article and a brief video.

  14. I have read your articles before and never had to share the article in order to read it. Love the rest of the website, but don’t like sharing in order to read it.

  15. I prefer to read an article& watch videos PRIOR to sharing… it’s a shame you require we share them beforehand. My guess is that you’ll loose a lot of readers & followers this way.

    • If you are a true believer and pray for this ministry then you would have no doubts about the honesty of it so sharing should be an easy decision, not one full of doubt. Bro. Irvin Baxter has given many years to the study of end time prophecies and is as accurate as any human can be. Pray for him and for God to open your eyes and understanding and He will show you what you need to know. God Bless

  16. Hi there brothers: I want to knows how much is the cost of the” 4 Blood Moons” DVD + s&h and where do I send the check. Thank you.-

    • The DVD is not available yet — it is still in production. However it will be available on our store once it is and it will be $20. Shipping is unknown because it is based off of your location. Stay tuned, we will post it in the next week or so.

  17. NASA says there will be 12,064 Lunar Eclipses between -1999 and +3000.

    Of these 12,064 eclipses, 3,479 will be total lunar eclipses. That’s an average of less than one total lunar eclipse per year. It is an average of 2.5 lunar eclipses per year of total plus partial lunar eclipses.

    During that time there will be 142 Lunar Tetrads. 62 will occur between 1 AD and 2100 AD.

    The chances of any lunar eclipse occurring on any particular day, whether total or partial, is less than 3/365. The chances of one occurring on particular days 4 times in a row would be 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 = or about one in 100 x 100 x 100 x 100 = one in 100 million days, or once in 273,000 years. Nevertheless they have occurred on the first day of Passover and Tabernacles 7 times since 1 AD, and are getting ready to occur again in 2014 and 2015. Statistically, they should NEVER HAPPEN.

    In 2014, the first of 4 total lunar eclipses occurs on Passover (First Feast Day), April 15, 2014, followed by a solar eclipse on April 29, 2014, then the second total lunar eclipse occurs on the Feast of Succoth (Last Fall Feast Day), October 8, 2014, followed by another solar eclipse on October 23, 2014.

    • I would like to know where these statistics originated from. Who came up with them? I am not questioning their validity but always like a source.

  18. April 15th! Wow! Can it be an omen? There is a link to know more but just to say 4 in a row and for ya’ll to know four solar eclipses too! Tetrads moons on Jewish Holidays, Israel became a nation 1948 and gained control of Jerusalem 1967. Look it up, related to moons and Israel. Is God telling us something? There is a solar eclipse in the middle, on the first day of the year on the Jewish calender? Help me out here! Count it up, cause stuff is going on in the middle east. We serve a Jewish God, our God Yahweh. These are great signs in the Heavens. Lord Jesus come!

      • I used Revelations chapter 13 and verse 18 and the number it instructs us to count “666″ as a measurement in the timeline from Adam and Eve, to April 2014 which is based on Ivan Panin’s Chronology findings.

        (ADAM) 1,318yrs , 666yrs (2015.33) 1,318yrs , 666yrs


        Using English Gematria, increments of 6, add ONE to EIGHT,

        ONE two THREE=888
        four five six seven EIGHT=[69wks,1st coming483+2013]
        +nine+zero =[450+666+2016]

        Daniel 9:24 is Bible Verse 22,013
        Daniel 9:27 is Bible Verse 22,016

        • Gematria is an esoteric/occult study. I’m not sure, but I think occultism is explicitly condemned in the bible. And numerous times. But by all means, continue to Babylon.

        • 666 is a symbol for a man or a system of religion and not a time period. A lot of scholars believe it will come from Rome led by a man,given power by the Papacy.

          • “The Sun Shall Be Turned Into Darkness, And The Moon Into Blood”=(2016+1536)
            “Two Thousand Sixteen”=1536

          • What ive shown Don, is an example of things people miss, when they try to fit GOD and everything else into their little box. Our timeline has CLEARLY entered the 666 zone,because THE BEAST will make himself known very soon!
            SUN + MOON=666

        • Ivan Panin showed in his Bible Chronology findings that the year of Christ’s death(tho he lives) on the cross, which is derived from the Bible data itself, is 4032 years from Adam and Eve. The 4032 years are divided into 8 periods(per.1 Adam-Flood , per.8 Nativity-Pentecost)4032 is the LAST obtainable year from the Bible data. It is the final date of 8th period.
          (ADAM) 2016yrs. + 2016yrs (4032THE CROSS)
          According to Ivan Panin we are about 3 years behind, and the start of 2014 is really a little over 2016 completed years from Christ’s Birth. Jesus Christ definitely has a special connection to the number, or year 2016.

          • Jesus is born at the start of the 2016th year of the hidden 2016 year span, which kicks off the span of 2016 years which is completed shortly before April 2014.
            Jesus Christ The Messiah From GOD=2016
            Have Faith In The Lord Jesus Christ=2016
            The Devil Is(Has)Come Down Unto You=2016

          • If you remove the 33 yrs of Christ from the timeline(just for clarity)an interesting symmetrical timeline can be seen, and a hidden span of 2016 shows up, only by using 1,318 and 666 years as measurement in the timeline from Adam to our year 2014

            (ADAM)1318 . 666 . 2016 . 666 . 1318(2014)

        • In the last 200 years, and in the next 150 years(thats as far as I counted),I couldn’t find another number(or year)that would divide into the number set thousands of times and leave a remainder of 666, except 2012
          1,234,567,890 Divided by 2012
          =613602x rmdr 666 Could this be a special marker in our timeline, signifying the start of the last normal year, 2013(life as we know it) on earth

          • a=6, b=12, c=18….z=156(GOD=156)

            8 was assigned by GOD to JESUS
            483(69wks. of years)was assigned by GOD to HIS 1st Coming.

        • I can’t make heads nor tails of your numbers. It would seem you are dragging up numbers to make them fit your passion, not using them to verify the probability of the tetrad being significant in bible prophecy

          • Its not rocket science, just grade 4 math. The number set is created by GOD,which explains why, with the exception of zero, 789 subtract 123 is 666. Now count 6x6x6=216, 4,5, and 0 not utilized(Noahs Ark 450ft long).
            666 – 450=216. There was no dragging up numbers on my part, that’s just the math in GODS number set.
            Now add the numbers in GODS number set, when written in words(using common Gematria)Eight is assigned by GOD to JESUS, and 483(69wks) is assigned by GOD to Christ’s 1st coming.
            GOD is involved with everything! He was also involved with the creation of the English alphabet. Again no numbers are dragged up by me, they just are what they are. And as for the timeline, all I did was count 1,318(Rev.13:18)years and 666 years from THE CROSS and found the two spans finished this April. Again nothing manipulated by me, it just is what it is. I just wanted to show that there is something special about this year, that the tetrad begins in.

  19. There’s an important reason why GOD wanted the people in the distant future to know the year of Enochs Departure,and Elijah’s i believe is 888 years(Jesus in Greek is 888) before THE CROSS.

The Four Blood Moons


By Irvin Baxter

Pastor John Hagee has authored a new book entitled, “Four Blood Moons: Things are about to change.” Hagee contends that the coming Four Blood Moons, called a Tetrad, signal great events that will change Israel and the world. Is there any truth to these assertions? We’ll talk about it today on Politics and Religion.

  1. Its not true. The end time will never ever come. The truth is Jesus will come to meet us from heaven. The earth remains forever according to the Bible and it must bring forth seasons. These moon signs were talking about the time of Jesus death.

  2. I am just a retired old man a Christian who believes in God, who created the universe, the earth and moon as well as all that inhabits our planet. I worked at NASA as well as 2 other aerospace companies… And yes there were many times conversations & friendly discussions revolved around how the earth and universe came to be, much having to do with how rocks, sand, and the warmth of the sun could somehow create living thinking anything… Without the direct purposeful hand of God, you may say “it just happened” but it just doesn’t , not without purposeful design! You may be surprised to learn that there are very(!) few atheists in the space program. Most believe that a purposeful hand, God, designed the universe including the Earth and moon, along with the inhabitants of earth and any where else He chose to put place them… It’s a big universe. If God chose to give us souls, then we have them, if he chose to bless a certain people over others then he did, if he sent his representative (or himself in human form?) then he did… And if he chooses to give “signs” to those who believe his message and messenger(s) then he does. If you choose to believe the 4 blood (red) moons are simply interesting interactions of the full moon and refracted setting sun light and coincidental with events on earth, so be it for you. I and many good and well read intelligent others choose to believe and be among those who choose to see and believe there is purpose in the design. Much like the rotation of the Earth is just right for human kind to survive, the distance of the circling moon is just right to control the tides and give beauty to our delight at night… And yes, perhaps to occasionally remind us that we have purpose and there is a timeline for all things. He said He is coming back and there will be signs. Are the “Blood Moons” part of those “signs” … A lot of wise men think so… But then, wasn’t it “Wise Men” who believed and followed a “star” . … He said there will be signs, I for one do not seek reasons not to believe, as long as God allows me to reside on Earth I will watch, wonder, hope, pray and rejoice the coming of The Lord, when ever that may be. Do I believe the “4 blood moons” mark the beginning of the end??? …. maybe?

    • It is very comforting to read Daniel O’s comments. Thank you. And thank you to Irvin Baxter too for all the great information that he shares.

  3. Imho I believe that the “Four Blood Moons” could trigger the bible phophesy of the vision God gave Ezekiel in the “Valley of Dry Bones” just prior to the “Rapture”. It would be the same miracle that took place before Jesus ascended to heaven.

    52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people. Matthew 27:52-53 NIV

    Ezekiel 37:1-14 NLT / The Valley of Dry Bones

    37 The Lord took hold of me, and I was carried away by the Spirit of the Lord to a valley filled with bones. 2 He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out. 3 Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?”
    “O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.”
    4 Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! 5 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! 6 I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”
    7 So I spoke this message, just as he told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. 8 Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them.
    9 Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’”
    10 So I spoke the message as he commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army.
    11 Then he said to me, “Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, ‘We have become old, dry bones—all hope is gone. Our nation is finished.’ 12 Therefore, prophesy to them and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the Lord. 14 I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the Lord has spoken!’”

    • If we had no internet there would hardly be any talk at all of the ends times.
      Jesus said “I will come like a thief in the night. only I know the time and the place.”
      Man please stop speculating. turn your energy towards the word of God sands for
      God sake!! Don’t be a hypocrite!!

  4. These are great warnings from heaven, God is speaking to the world. The time truly is at hand, repent and believe the good news of Jesus Christ.
    The world should prepare to recieve the just judge.

  5. The Blood Moon conspiracy is flawed and does not reflect scientific data and definitions of lunar activity. It is common, throughout history for lunar eclipses to occur of the Passover and Sukkoth. Since the Lord who created the lunar cycles established the date of the Passover on a full moon, should we be surprised that the cycle continues in regular intervals.
    It is also a scientific fact that red moon phenomena only occurs in partial eclipses. So all this monarchy about four blood moons coming is just a way to sell book to naive, uninformed readers and stuff your pockets with their hard earned money. Shame, Shame, Shame!

    • One of the unchanging ironies of the human condition is this: no amount of evidence, no matter how carefully prepared and presented, can convince any person who has decided not to be convinced of anything which might undermine their own core beliefs. Eventually such a person may discover that they have been both wrong and possibly obstinate as well. I thank God that He is so very patient with our various degrees of unbelief, especially when He knows how sincerely we cling to theerrors of which we are so certain. But none of that invalidates His intent to warn His people, as He promised to do. By the Way: There also was a full blood red moon at perigee (a super moon) over Jerusalem’s Old City during Israel’s Independence Day celebrations in May of 1995. It was very visible, enormous and spectacular. I was in Israel at that time, and saw it along with my wife and youngest son, plus many thousands of others who were gathered in various parts of Jerusalem that evening.

  6. Sounds very solid and beliveable. May HaShem bless you. Have you read the prophecy of Rabbi Judah ben Samuel’s. He gave this 600 years ago> He has been accurate for every word so far.

  7. Tetrad # 1
    162-163 AD
    634 years later is

    Tetrad #2
    795-796 AD
    48 years later is

    Tetrad #3
    842-843 AD
    19 years later is

    Tetrad #4
    860-861 AD
    634 years later is:

    Tetrad #5
    457 years later is

    Tetrad #6
    19 years later is

    Tetrad #7
    48 years later is

    Tetrad #8
    48 years later is

    19 and 634 are both used twice.

    1948 is certainly a significant year in that Israel became a nation again. 634 perhaps might be the rise of Islam?

    48 is used three times. God raised Jesus from the dead in three days

    In the Bible the number 8, which comes after the number (7) which signifies completeness, symbolizes a new beginning, or a new order of things, a new creation, a new birth, and the resurrection to eternal life.

    Will our Father God give the order for Jesus to bring (rapture) us home between now and the completeness of the 8th blood moon?

    • Your not including the most important Blood moon of all there was aTetrad in 32-33 AD and a Blood moon the day christ Hung on the Cross Try overlaying the star constellation’s when the blood moons happen you will find something even More remarkable ! You will find the blood red moon at the foot of virgo the virgin and the earth moon sun lined up in the heart of the Ram.

    • Where in the Bible does it mention about ‘how many’ blood moons?. I am not aware of any number mentioned, anywhere in the Bible.

  8. there is a nearer war going on right now in the US. the dollar is failing. soon, maybe even by the end of 2014, there will be no more US currency. people are just going on like the dollar is not failing, while it’s being broadcast over the media about the other countries: russia, china, arab nations, germany, etc., have come together to buy and trade without the US dollar. economist are warning to turn your cash into gold and other resourses in order to survive. there will be martial law declared and enforced once this happens and chaos and confusion will be rampet! this is going to happen sooner than people think. distrubuting the wealth and printing money has never worked, nations have fallen because of what obama is doing right now. you don’t hear this coming from the government right now, they want people blind to the truth, but soon, the people of the US will come under the total control of the socialist government in office today. The people in the US and Israel will be crippled. The US people will not be able to support Israel financially anymore. Even so, come Lord Jesus, come.

  9. With all these prophecies and pending world events, why don’t main stream denominations like the Assemblies of God and others warn the church regularly of the occurrences that are unfolding almost daily? When I went to the AG website to look for articles they had only two reference written by Tim Lahaye. I don’t think that is enough. I think that I should have found much much more about the return of Jesus and the signs of the generation to see these things. I believe people need to know more about all of this so thank you for helping us to understand. In my opinion not enough Pastors want to talk about controversial subjects like who Mystery Babylon. Do Pastors and congregations want Jesus to return? Will the much of the church be blindsided? Why are we not working more together with Jewish believers to warn them? To borrow a line from Keith Green, are we “asleep in the light?” Thank you for your comments, Mary Ellen

    • It’s because the apostasy is not promoting the kingdom. They think they are, and they might appear to be, but they are not. They have been blinded. Remember, most believers will argue with Christ at their judgments just before He tells them He doesn’t even know them (Matthew 7:21-23). These are those who believed but did not possess the Holy Spirit. That’s most members of most religions and denominations.

      • I have wondered the same thing that Mary Ellen has mentioned. We belong to an A/G church and we are not hearing one word about these things either. We are leaders of a home group through the church. The people in our group wanted to study the end times. Because my husband has been an associate pastor in the past, he was told that we could choose what we taught in our group. We always make a bi-weekly report. After much prayer, God laid it on our hearts, to buy Irvin’s study, the 14 DVD study-Understanding the End Times, and we all think it is the best study we have ever done. We were afraid to tell our leaders, because they might not like it, or agree with Irvin’s point of view, but we know that the Holy Spirit has been guiding us. We are seeing the things of the end times opening up before our eyes in the news. My husband and I, are praying about finding a church, that is talking to their people about all of these things, as a regular part of keeping informed. We don’t think anyone in our area is doing this, and we are asking God to show us what to do. I prayed asking God, to connect us with other Christians seeking the Lord. I have found quite a few Christians through face-book, that are in the same boat, and have made some friends there. I have found more talk about the end times on this site, and on face-book, than anywhere else. Irvin, we are so grateful that God has laid it upon your heart, to search and share with all of us about the end times. I wish that you were doing a weekly sermonette, that people could tap into, and a few families could gather in the homes, as smaller churches. Thank you, and keep on going. For so many of us, you are a beacon guiding us!

  10. Paul said that being children of the light we do know… to understand this you need to understand the Jewish Feast Days or appointed times. To know what that “timeframe” is a study of the Feast of Trumpets revealed that the Priest have to visually see the moon to the able to blow the shofar and begin the festive activities. This could take as long as two days depending on cloudy weather conditions, thus this explains the “no man knoweth the day or hour” as understood and explained by the apostle Paul.

  11. Bro. Baxter, greetings in the name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. I am from Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies, i’ve been watching and listening to you for quite a while and find that you have a very informative show. You are a blessing to all in revealing the truth of the word of God. May God continue to bless you and your ministry. My prayers are also with you to the trip to Israel . Regards Krishna.
