Blood moon judgment: Israeli rabbi calls for prayer and repentance
JERUSALEM, Israel — A mystic Israeli rabbi from southern Israel has called on all Jews to repent and pray with the approach of the third blood moon of a tetrad cycle, to appear in the skies during Passover and Good Friday.
The website Breaking Israel News reports that Rabbi Amram Vankin predicted years ago that the 44th president of the United States would bring bloodshed to the Jewish people, based on the Hebrew word for blood, “dam,” which has the numeric value of 44. Vankin said this before Barack Obama was elected as the 44th American president.
President Obama just heralded the framework for an agreement between the world powers and Iran, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Friday “will threaten the survival of Israel.” The rabbi believes the number 44 has special significance this lunar eclipse because this one is expected to last 4 minutes and 44 seconds, the shortest such eclipse of the 21st century. …
Other rabbis and pastors believe the blood moons are a significant signpost in the heavens but may not portend judgment for Israel as much as they portend momentous events — and perhaps blessing for the Jewish people.
Pastor John Hagee, author of the book, Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change, told CBN News’ Erick Stakelbeck, “God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way.” “I believe that in the next two years [from 2014], we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world,” Hagee said.
