With much of the world in shock over the fact the latest America-brokered peace talks between Israel and Palestinian broke down, one Tacoma, Washington, based pastor wasn’t all that surprised.
After all, major events in the Middle East have accompanied a “blood moon” before.
Mark Biltz, discoverer of the blood moons phenomenon and author of the hot-selling book “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” appeared on Barry Farber’s nationally syndicated talk show prior to the April 15 astronomical occurrence.
He told Farber, “God would have any peace talks involving dividing the land of Israel to break down as He is opposed to it. If peace talks do come to fruition that involve dividing the land of Israel they won’t last long as God’s judgment would come fast and furious.”
The Israeli government suspended peace talks on Thursday over an agreement the Palestinians announced involving two factions, one of whom refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a nation.
Farber was reached by phone on Friday and told WND he was amazed by the comments Biltz made on his show more than two weeks ago and how it related to the first blood moon, which happened early on the morning of April 15.
“My belief cage is getting larger and larger as I grow older. At half my age I would have sneered at someone like Mark Biltz. I would have broken off an engagement if my intended spouse did not join me in that sneering. As I live and as I see and as I learn, I am virtually at the point where the blood moons (event) is at least as reliable as the Associated Press news ticker. Thinking back upon our fascinating conversation live on my national radio, I have to say the most accurate prognosticator so far this season is – Mark Biltz,” he said.
“Most predictors tell you one day what’s going to happen and the next day tell you why it didn’t happen. He told my network audience that something big in the Middle East would happen close to the time of the appearance of the blood moon.”
Farber told WND, “And the definitive end of the Palestinian-Israeli peace talks occurred by virtue of Fatah embracing Hamas.”
In promotion of his book, Biltz has appeared on scores of national and international radio programs and has also appeared on The Today Show and the Fox News Channel, among other TV programs.
He told WND one of his primary messages on radio programs was telling hosts and audience to read Joel 2:31 in Christian Bibles (Joel 3:4,5 in Jewish Bibles):
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”
He said, “I told Farber and multiple other programs that blood moons heralded great change and that there is a good chance the nations will be judged if they try to divide the land in Israel based on the context.”
April 15 marked the start of an extraordinary chain of events in the heavens, which happened to fall on Passover.
For many, the events will be nothing more than a powerful alignment of the heavens. For others, the astronomical activity will align with biblical prophecy.
“We are on the verge of witnessing something historic,” said Biltz, who discovered the blood moons phenomenon in 2007.
What began on Passover is called a “blood moon tetrad,” an astronomical series of lunar eclipses that has occurred before in history, according to NASA. But there’s something very different about this series, because the eclipses occur on the biblical holidays of Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot, in 2014, and 2015.
Biltz discovered what has become the “blood moon phenomenon” back in 2007, researching the correlation between when blood moons fell on feast days and key historical world events. He found the divine link between prophecy, heavenly signs, historical events, and when they intersect.
Biltz’ new book “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” details the science of astronomy in light of Bible prophecy. He began to teach and explain his discovery of a series of lunar and solar eclipses that happened at the same time important dates (Passover, Feast of Tabernacles) on the Hebrew calendar.
“Blood Moons” was released nationwide March 18, and has consistently being one of the top books sold on Amazon.com. A full-length documentary produced by WND Films and featuring Biltz was also released the same day. It has been one of the top sellers in faith and spirituality on Amazon since its release.
Biltz said that to understand the meanings of signs, it’s important to know the seasons, feasts and calendar of the Lord.
Biltz, founder of El Shaddai Ministries, is a well-known commentator on the feasts of the Lord who has spoken in Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and throughout the United States.
The Jim Bakker Show host Jim Bakker called Pastor Biltz work, “the most important book of the times.”
Biltz spent two days recording interviews with Lori and Jim Bakker at their Christian retreat in Branson, Missouri, with Bakker saying that the broadcasts tell “the definitive story of the impending blood moons by the man who discovered the astronomical relationship behind the prophecy, heavenly signs and when they intersect.”
Bakker told Biltz that he read “Blood Moons” in exactly one setting, spending an entire night consuming every page and detail set forth in the book.
