Another End Of The World!

Rev John Hagee
For people who enjoy these regular ends of the world when Jesus returns, saves a few self-righteous Americans and kills everyone else, John Hagee is the man to follow!

His current prediction is for 30 August this year. There is no doubt at all about this. Like all his other predictions, this has been revealed to him by God and from his study of 'God's Holy Word' in the 'inerrant' Bible, so there can't be any doubt. There never is any doubt! There was never any doubt about all the previous predictions either!

John Hagee is of course more known for spitting hate at minorities from the pulpit, fulminating against anyone from homosexuals to women who mention God during an organsm and calling for the death penalty or lengthy terms in prison for those who disagree with him, in true Christian style. John Hagee doesn't forgive his enemies lightly but demands the state punish them on his behalf and pass laws restricting their rights and freedoms.

But it's not his record as a follower of Jesus that I'm looking at here so much as his record as a would-be Bible-style prophet. Unfortunately for John Hagee, unlike the Bible prophets who had someone to write about how all their prophecies had been fulfilled, so not needing real evidence, we can see for ourselves how well John Hagee does.

John Hagee is a Man Of God so can be trusted absolutely! As a MOG he knows not to bear false witness, being fully aware of the horrors that await those who do. We can trust John Hagee!

John Hagee of course, like other prophets, rarely spells out in precise detail what he is actually predicting so a firm prediction that Jesus will return on 30 August 2016 is bold by his standards. Normally, as in his book 'Four Blood Moons' he limits his risk by simply forecasting that “a world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015” and "something is about to change.”

Would it be possible to find any eighteen month period in history in which something which could conceivably be described as "a world-shaking event" could not be found? And what of these entirely predictable four 'blood' moons? Was this 'world-shaking event' to be confined to just those parts of the world where these were actually visible or is being visible to Americans sufficient? According to John Hagee, four blood moons is God's way of telling us something bad might happen, or might have happened already, somewhere. Or maybe it's something good. But whatever, it's God's way of letting us know - or some of us at least! Thank you God! That was really useful!

Strangely, for a MOG who believes the 'inerrant' God's word in the Bible, Hagee seems not to trust parts of it. For example, in 'Four Blood Moons' he quotes:

"But in those days, “the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light.” At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory."

Mark 13:24–26

But somehow avoids including part of the quote which makes an actual, observable prediction (which can be falsified). The full quote is:

But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

Mark 13:24-26

Now we can't have people noticing that the stars don't, and can't, fall from the sky and don't shake, can we! That would just make 'God's inerrant word' look stupid! It would make it look like 'God's inerrant word' was based on a primitive cosmology that thought the stars were stuck to a dome covering Earth! How stupid is that, eh? Obviously 'God's inerrant word' must be edited to avoid making God look stupid!

Hagee also quote from Luke "your redemption draws near." Wisely, he edits out the part where Luke quotes Jesus as saying:

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

Luke 21:28-32

We can't have people seeing that 'God's inerrant word' has Jesus making a failed prophecy now can we! That would be so embarrassing! Luckily, Hagee knows that few if any of his followers will ever open a Bible to check these things for themselves because they can rely on MOG, the Rev John Hagee to tell them what's in 'God's inerrant word'.

So what does Hagee produce this stuff to mislead his followers for?

John Hagee is a senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio. He is an owner of John Hagee Ministries and CEO of Global Evangelism Television. Hagee also created organization Christians United for Israel. He’s a well known figure and you could almost say a celebrity. As of 2015, Hagee’s net worth is approximately $5 million.

Of course, what an evangelical MOG needs most with the end of the world just a matter of days away, is a great deal of money!

Mind you, as televangelists go, MOG John Hagee is something of a failure, only making it to number eleven on the rich list. He is small-fry compared to others on the same list:
  1. Kenneth Copeland - Net Worth $760 Million.
  2. Pat Robertson - Net Worth $100 Million.
  3. Benny Hinn - Net Worth $42 Million.
  4. Joel Osteen - Net Worth $40 Million.
  5. Creflo Dollar - Net Worth $27 Million.
  6. Billy Graham - Net Worth $25 Million.
  7. Rick Warren - Net Worth $25 Million.
  8. Bishop T. D. Jakes - Net Worth $18 Million.
  9. Juanita Bynum - Net Worth $10 Million.
  10. Joyce Meyer - Net Worth $8 Million.
But at least John Hagee has given us all something to look forward to. As with all the previous ends of the world (and I have enjoyed at least four in the past few years) I propose we call 30 August 2016 'Laugh at Gullible Idiots Day', although it is probably not kind to laugh at those unfortunate fools who have sent money to people like John Hagee believing this will have bought them a ticket to Heaven.

  1. You know that they never belive their own "end of days" prophecies because they do things like renew their drivers licences their insurance policies. Invest in long term bank accounts etc. So they expect to be around. Their actions testify to the falsely of their own pronouncements.

  2. There was just one of these on July 29th, too. My reaction to that one, as well as the one coming up, is to post an image of Marvin the Martian looking through a telescope with the caption, "Where is the kaboom? There's supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom!"
