In Blood Moon: Biblical Signs of the Apocalypse, Doug Woodward examines the Blood Moon Prophecy as articulated by Mark Biltz. Woodward finds a middle ground, identifying why the Blood Moon Prophecy is likely to be authentic, but cautions against accepting its validity without the test of time. Woodward points out many reasons to find cause for belief and many reasons that it legitimately could be questioned. Woodward evaluates the nature of biblical signs by studying the phrase signs and wonders as used in both the Old Testament (Hebrew and Aramaic) and in the New Testament (Greek). He also evaluates the issues of whether biblical signs of the apocalypse must all be supernatural–showing why many may be ‘natural’ in terms of astronomical events that are unusual but not paranormal acts. The heart of the book, however, is an apologetic for why the study and adherence to the Kingdom of God (and the apocalypse it implies) is mandated by the words of Jesus Christ. His followers MUST keep watch–always. He finds surprising corroboration in modern liberal theology and disconcerting denials in evangelicalism. Woodward professes belief in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church.
In Blood Moon, he argues forcefully for this interpretation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
