The Second Blood Moon

As many of you are aware, we are in the middle of what I call a Holy Tetrad.  A tetrad is defined by NASA as when four consecutive total lunar eclipses occur (see http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2014/27mar_tetrad/).  When all of the total lunar eclipses fall on the High Holy Days (as defined by YHWH in Leviticus 23 & Deuteronomy 16), I call it a Holy Tetrad.

During a total lunar eclipse, the moon will turn dark red and it is often described as a “blood moon”.  This terminology is used in Scripture (Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20, & Rev 6:12).

The four blood moons of the 2014-2015 Holy Tetrad are 04/15/2014 (Pesach/Passover), 10/08/2014 (Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot), 04/04/2015 (Pesach/Passover), and 09/28/2015 (Feast of Tabernacles/Sukkot).  So far, we had the first blood moon of the Holy Tetrad on the most recent Pesach/Passover and will have a second blood moon coming up this Wednesday. (Quoted from a report by George Pappas)

I like the phrase George used: “Holy Tetrad.” The timing of these eclipses on holy feast days cannot be understated. God is definitely telling us something. Signs in the heavens point us to the coming of the Messiah. We are in a season of accelerating signs. Even the world events are centered on the geographical center of the earth: Jerusalem, Israel and the Middle East.

We must not continue with business as usual. The winds of change are blowing. There is a stirring in the air and a feeling deep in the inner man confirming cosmic change of Biblical proportions. This is not a time for burying your head in the sand or sleeping on your watch. Wake up! Be alert, discern the times. Be ready to act for God’s purposes.

Two verses mean a lot to me right now. One describes our readiness and the other our action.

the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command; 1 Chronicles 12:32

Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. Daniel 11:32

Get ready now because there won’t be time when the trumpet sounds. It is better to be ready than to have to get ready at that time.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Just Pray NO!

Dear Brother Les:

Although there has been much attention given to the Tetrad of Blood Moons by evangelicals, please be aware of the problems with this teaching.

First of all, a sign is a warning “prior” to an event. The supposed first two blood moons of the 20th century occured after Israel’s War of Independence. They did not even occur directly after, but in 1949, the following year.

Secondly, only one of the four lunar eclipses of 2014-2015 can be seen in Jerusalem.

Thirdly, one of the solar eclipses can only been viewed from the Faroe Islands which are situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic – hardly a sign to the nations.

Most importantly, it is clear from Scripture when the sign of Jesus Second Coming will take place:

“But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Matthew:24:29

Greetings Brother Sherman.

— First of all, a sign is a warning “prior” to an event.

The fact that we are discussing this event before it has actually occurred shows that it could be a sign or a warning. Discussions about the 2014-2015 Tetrad have been around for at least two or three years.

— Thirdly, one of the solar eclipses can only been viewed from the Faroe Islands …

You mention “solar eclipses”. It seems that might have been a typo. If it was, and you were talking about one of the lunar eclipses of the 2014-2015 Holy Tetrad, then that statement is incorrect.

— Most importantly, it is clear from Scripture when the sign of Jesus Second Coming will take place…

I do not believe that the Tetrad is a sign for Yeshua’s return. I believe that it might be a sign for a coming judgement.

Blessings.
