A messianic Jewish leader says if you look into the sky later this month and see the moon painted red, it could have significance for the nation of Israel.
Genesis relates the prophecy of the Four Blood Moons, which throughout history has been a sign for Israel. On September 28, some biblical scholars are predicting the completion of another Four Blood Moon cycle or tetrad.
Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, explains that the Blood Moons were present in 1967, during the Six Day War when Israel was attacked by Egypt, Jordan and Syria.
But just as with the recently completed Shemitah cycle, Markell says Christians need to pay attention but don't go off the deep end. She cites the example of supposed prophets predicting the Rapture.
"I think when you hear people talk like that you need to dismiss them as sensationalists and they're not trustworthy," she tells OneNewsNow. "That's my own personal opinion."
While the Blood Moons are indeed a warning for Israel, she adds, there's no way to know what that warning is.
