About the Book: Inspired by NASA projections and recorded history, Pastor John Hagee shows direct connections between four blood-moon eclipses and major world events. Further, he reveals the significance of the four upcoming blood moons and what they portend for Israel and all of humankind.

WC's Review:  The trouble with reading a book on biblical prophecy is that the reader must employ more than a cursory knowledge of Scripture in order to wrap his mind around the myriad of connections the author makes. They may all be true, but to grasp the intricacies that popular televangelist John Hagee asserts in this investigation of prophetic signs from the skies, demands a constant and unwavering faith in the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hagee quotes from Luke 21: 25, 27-28. "There will be signs in the sun, and in the stars....Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."

Four blood moons refer to the perfect alignment of the sun with the moon and with the earth, causing an eclipse of the moon which causes it to appear blood red. These are signs from God, which foretold the Flood, the fall of Sodom, the reestablishment of the nation of Israel in 1948, the Yom Kippur War, or Six Day War of 1967, and significant cataclysmic signs in regard to God's chosen people. Since God no longer speaks to us in person, He gives us heavenly signs.

Hagee stresses the differences between astrology, which may be based on the interpretations of occultists, and astronomy, which is universally accepted as based upon scientific fact.

This is a fantastic read, one that must remain handy to remind the reader that it likely must be consulted often.  5 Stars
