The Four Blood Moons Throughout the history of mankind man has reached out to the heavens to see if there was a connection between celestial patterns and events on the earth. Egyptians and many other cultures have consulted the celestials with a great deal of mathematical precision to determine earthly events. It still has a significant impact on world history, as we will show.
What is a “Blood Moon?” A “blood moon” also called (hunter’s moon) is the first full moon after a harvest moon. The moon changes color from gray to orange to shades of red. Most of the world uses the Gregorian calendar, which does no correlations between the moon cycles and the month. Days of the month run 28, 30 and 31 days.
The Jewish calendar differs in that it correlates on lunar cycle. Months are either 29 or 30 days, corresponding to the 29 ½ day lunar cycle. Years are 12 or 13 months corresponding to the 12 – month solar cycle. About every 231 years, the Jewish calendar will fall a day behind the Gregorian calendar year.
A “tetrad” means when four consecutive lunar eclipses are total eclipses, the group is called a tetrad.
The Jewish Talmud says, “When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is red as blood, (it is a sign that) the sword is coming to the world.”
The Old Testament Book of Joel and the New Testament Book of Revelation speak about the earth experiencing a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. During solar eclipses the sun is obscured by the moon, except for wisps of light around the corona, as if hairy sackcloth was put in front of the sun.
Here is the scripture found in Joel 2:31, KJV which reads:
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of The Lord come.”
Revelation 6:12 KJV, which reads:
“And 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;”
There are three sets of Blood Moons that correspond with significant events in Jewish history. Here they are:
1492- The Alhambra Degree (March 31, 1492) for the expulsion of Jews from Spain forever, if they would not convert to Christianity, they had to leave Spain said Catholic Church. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella were reigning. Passover was on April 2, 1493 and March 22, 1494 during the Spanish Inquisition.
1948 – The Jewish War of Independence. On May 4, 1948 Arabs attacked Kfar Etzion; they were driven back but returned a week later. Israel declared independence in May 14, 1948. They say the army did not have a single canon or tank. Passover was April 13, 1949 and April 2, 1950.
1967- The Six Day War also called (The June War) it was fought from June 5 to 10, 1967. The first day of Passover was April 24, 1967 and April 13, 1968.
Historically total solar eclipses have been a bad omen for the nations; blood red moons have been a bad omen for the Jewish nation. There were four blood moon eclipses that fell on Passover and Sukkot at the time of time of the Jewish expulsion from Spain in 1492, in 1948 and in 1967. In 2014 and 2015 the same pattern will occur with four blood lunar eclipses falling on Passover and Sukkot.
Here are the dates:
April 15, 2014 – first total Blood Moon
October 8, 2014- second total Blood Moon
April 4, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse
September 28, 2015
The year of 2014-2015 is the only time this millennium (2000-3000 AD) that a Blood Moon Tetrad will take place.
