Blood Red Moons Signs
DECEMBER 16, 2010 2:20 AM
Eyes glaze over when you mention any information on end times events or predictions. This is the result of men, over time, running around saying the end is near. Many men have even claimed to know the exact day or hour of the return of Christ. The shouts of the end were many times followed by a book deal or a TV show. However the study of the Bible is a highly technical task. The study of history compared to Biblical prophesy is banned in schools today. Even the history of the United States has been altered.
Math calculations along with the sun, moon and stars are very hard to sway to an agenda. God provided signs that men and Satan could not change that point to the season of the end times. In this case the upcoming Tetrad of blood moons could point to one of the signs given in the bible of the season of the end times.
The Impact of Mark Blitzs studies!
A wave hit the prophecy web sites with the release of Mark Blitzs studies of lunar and solar eclipse occurring on the Jewish Feast days.
A World Net Daily story on Blood Moons http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=63076 brought the information into mainstream prophecy news.
How Does it all Add Up
Blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot on back-to-back years has occurred seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the Spanish Inquisition), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) some of the most significant days in Jewish history.
The Gregorian calendar can vary by weeks from year to year. But, by the Hebrew calendar, the dates for each festival are rigid. Passover (or Pesach) begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, and Sukkot on the 15th of Tishrei.
A rare event will occur in 2014 and 2015 of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad.
During this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but whats interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with Gods holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumns Feast of Tabernacles occurs between 2014 and 2015 on todays Gregorian calendar.
In1967, the next time that you had four blood red moons again was right after Israel became a nation
In 1948 and 1967 it happened and again in 1949 and 1950 on Passover and Feast of Tabernacles. There were no tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Feast of Tabernacles or any feast days and then in 1492 when the Jews were removed from Spain.
Solar eclipses, happen on the first day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 years.
In 2015 the religious year is beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Tabernacles all in 2015.
We also see from the Greek writings that the blood moon sign happened when Jesus was crucified also:
Report of Pontius Pilate
And him Herod and Archelaus and Philip, Annas and Caiaphas, with all the people, delivered to me, making a great uproar against me that I should try him. I therefore ordered him to be crucified, having first scourged him, and having found against him no cause of evil accusations or deeds.
And at the time he was crucified there was darkness over all the world, the sun being darkened at mid-day, and the stars appearing, but in them there appeared no luster; and the moon, as if turned into blood, failed in her light.
The Jubilee Connection:
Seven sets of seven years @ 360 days per year from June 7, 1967 when Israel entered Jerusalem is exactly 17,640 days to Sept. 23, 2015 on the Day of Atonement, which is the day to usher in the Jubilee yearthe 50th year. 2015 is also a Sabbatical year, that occurs once every seven years.
This Tetrad of blood moons on the first and last days of the 7 feasts 4 times in a row wont happen again for centuries.
*1965-66 (this was 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 1966-67 is Jubilee) Israel captures Jerusalem in 6 day war.
*2014-15 (this will be 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 2015-16 is Jubilee) based on 360 day Hebrew years
The Bible never states that the blood moons are the Day of the Lord or any Rapture. It states that it is a sign that the coming of the Lord is near. You are actual told: But of that day and hour
knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only Matthew 24:36
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Luke 21: 25~28
25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26Mens hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
The people in Noahs day knew that they had 120 years to enter the ark. They knew when the 120 years was drawing to an end. But they did not know the hour or the day that the door to the ark would be closed. They did not know when their last opportunity would come to enter the ark.
Some of the people may have thought that if it started to rain then they would go into the ark. But by the time the rain started it was too late. The door to the ark had already been shut and no one else could go in.
