A review of ‘Signs in the Heavens: Blood moons are coming to Israel’ – a DVD by Mark Biltz

Reviewed by request from Ken, United Kingdom

This presentation by Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries was filmed at the Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit, 2013. ‘Blood moons’ have been in the news of late, even making the front pages of the newspapers in the UK, and Biltz’s ideas have been used by well-known end times author John Hagee to link observations of near-space phenomena with political upheaval of eschatological significance.

A ‘blood moon’ is caused when the earth passes between the moon and the sun. Unable to reflect the usual amount of sunlight, the moon turns red. They are fairly common, but what Mark Biltz highlights is that in 2014-15 there will be four blood moons in close succession, including one that will be seen in Israel. (more…)

Seven Biblical tips for living a joy-filled life

This is adapted from a Sunday talk at Glenwood Church – listen to the talk here

Joy is one of the fruits of the Spirit listed by the Apostle Paul in Galatians chapter 5, verses 22-23

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

We need to grow this fruit called joy, because generally speaking the perception is that Christians are the opposite of joyful. Christians seem to be thought of as serious and judgemental and frowning at everything. (more…)

The 200th question on freelance theology

Question 200, from Sally-Ann via Twitter

Why do you have horns on your theology?

This is the 200th question to be answered on freelance theology, and so with that milestone in mind, I’ve chosen to talk about the freelance theology logo.

This question was asked on Twitter and referred to the ‘horns’ and ‘devil tail’ on the ‘g’ in ‘theology’. There is also a halo on the ‘f’ in ‘freelance’. This is deliberate, to show that theology falls in-between heaven and hell, in the here and now, and that it matters because it could affect our eternal destination. For the same reason there are heavenly clouds on the left of the logo and flames on the right hand side.

If you are one of the people who posed one of the 200 questions on freelance theology over the last ten years, then thank you. There are more questions waiting to be answered, so keep coming back to read the latest.

You can ask your question using the comment form on any post, or on Twitter.

Best wishes,
