119 Ministries is the Hebrew Roots ministry of Jon Sherman and Steve Moutria. They teach Bible prophecy including the four blood moons theory in their Daniel Unsealed video. As with other Hebrew Roots groups, many Christians consider 119 ministries a cult.
Is 119 Ministries a "Cult"?
I first heard about 119 Ministries in 2012 when my readers kept telling me they were moving to Costa Rica and asked if I knew them. I did not. Even once they moved here, I still have not had the chance (as of 2013. Costa Rica may be a small country but the mountanous terrain and poor roads makes for a great divide between Tilaran where they live and I.)
As far as the cult accusation, I don't know how a couple of families supporting each other in a ministry producing Bible teaching videos makes for a scary "cult." I think it's the oddness of their Hebrew Roots/Torah keeping position that makes people say that, maybe coupled with their unusual move to Costa Rica. But from what I read, they moved here to be able to take advantage of the lower cost of living and quit their jobs to do their ministry full time.
Daniel Unsealed - Four Blood Moons Speculation
Anyway, sometime after they moved down here, people kept forwarding me their Bible prophecy teaching video called Daniel Unsealed and asking me what I thought about it. When I took the time to watch the video, I was surprised to see that they were clearly influenced by the speculation of Mark Biltz about the four blood moons of 2014-2015. They used the blood moons as part of their case for a different end time timing than Biltz (Messiah returning in 2016 instead of 2015).
For my opinion about Daniel Unsealed, what I pointed out about Mark Biltz's theory applies to their theory as well.
The End In 2026? It's Now Possible
Since learning in 2001 that Yeshua must return in a Sabbath year, I've had to rule out three Sabbath year cycle windows for the final 7 years (2003-2009, 2010-2016, 2017-2023). With the next window (2024-2030) less than 7 years away, I'm ready to share why I believe, based on the real end time sign of Mt 24:14, that this can be the one. If it is, the "birth pains" (WW3 + Wormwood, Lk 21:10-11) would hit near its middle in 2026 with Yeshua returning in 2030. Find out what's changed to convince me about 2026 and what you can do about it...
