Should we be worried about the remaining two blood moons this year?

Aside from the global insanity, there is speculation among many well-known prophecy experts that the frequency of these events (together with this tetrad) is a sure sign from God. In fact, they point to biblical authenticity to prove this present tetrad is a sign: "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years (Genesis 1:14).
While we know the world is undergoing dramatic change, we do not know with absolute certainty if the Blood Moons are to be included with the end-time signs. But if not, the "end-time signs" (within the last 70 years) are sufficient warning for Israel and the world to know what is coming our way, moons or no moons (Matthew 24:34).
John Hagee has a relatively good understanding of Bible prophecy with the ability to fill in the blanks with what he believes will happen. Hagee has done his homework regarding the events leading up to the Second Coming of Christ, but not everyone agrees with his view on how these events will unfold.
From what I've been able to see, Hagee and other prophecy authorities share many of the same end-time views as Got Questions. Hagee's book on the Blood Moons is convincing and paints a picture of how things could work out…but not necessarily how things will work out.
Got Questions' official position on this modern-day prediction (based on a theory developed by Pastor Biltz and popularized by John Hagee) is just that, a theory. But, theories are sometimes true.
What happens after the next two Blood Moons this year could be significant from a prophetic standpoint. Further destabilization in the Middle East exposes Israel and the world to unknown tomorrows. The Book of Revelation warns about a time such as this when the nations would spiral out of control and fall under the power a godless leader (Revelation 13:5-7).
Grant Phillips writes, "…Jesus was very displeased with the Pharisees and Sadducees for not recognizing the signs of His first coming to earth. Does it not make sense that He expects us to recognize the signs He is showing us today of His near second coming and the Rapture preceding it?" (Source)
The end-of-the-age warning signs are everywhere. The virgins invited to the wedding feast are either trimming their lamps at this moment or slumbering away the day of grace (Matthew 25:1-10).
Should we be worried? Dare we ignore the signs? Even if the Blood Moons theory proves uneventful in 2015, the remaining end-time signs are in play and could prove to be very eventful.
Though we do not know the day or hour, we can know the season (Matthew 24:5-8, 36). Prophecy authors like Hal Lindsay, David Reagan, and others believe we are in the season; and our hearts quietly whisper the same. The remaining days in 2015 could play out to be a very interesting time for everyone on planet earth.
In closing, the other day I was feeling hard-pressed by the tumbling sensation of life. I asked the Lord what to do? The verse that came (forcefully) to mind was, "Look up…your redemption is drawing nigh" (Luke 21:25-28). These words spoken by Jesus were true then and even more so today. It is good advice, don't you think, knowing the Lord's long wait (to bring us home) is coming to an end!
