LOS ANGELES — As we usher in Sukkot, will there be a blood moon rising?
John Hagee, the San Antonio pastor who wrote the book Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change, would have us believe so.
Hagee predicts that because of a cycle of four lunar eclipses called a tetrad — two this year and next on Passover and Sukkot — that something big is about to happen, like the Rapture.
The eclipse will be seen throughout much of the world on Oct. 7 and 8 — the latter the eve of Sukkot. It will be visible throughout much of the US on Oct. 8, but only in New Zealand on the actual holiday.
