2014 – 2015
What do they mean?
There will be two blood moons (lunar eclipses) in 2014. The sun will eclipse in March 2015 followed by two blood moons also in 2015. Each blood moon occurs on a Jewish Feast Day. These feast days were ordained by God and symbolize events that would happen in the future. For more information on Feast Days of Israel click here. The Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) is discussed at length here.
Passover Sukkot * Adar 29 / Nisan 1 Passover Sukkot *
4/15/2014 10/08/2014 3/20/2015 4/04/2015 9/28/2015
* Sukkot is Hebrew for Feast of Booths or Tabernacles
Events like these should be considered important! Anything that happens this infrequently bears serious thought and scrutiny. A Tetrad ( the four blood moons) has only occurred seven times in the past 2,000 years.
- 32-33 A.D. – Jesus was crucified.
- 162-163 A.D., 795-796 A.D., and 842-843 A.D. – I don’t know the historical significance of these years. The Jews were greatly persecuted during this time.
No Tetrads were noted for the next several hundred years!
- 1493-1494 A.D. – Spain ordered all the Jews to leave the country. Spain had become a second “home-land” for them for 1,000 years at that time.
- 1949-1950 A.D. – Israel’s War for Independence
- 1967-1968 – Six Day War
People wonder what all of this means. I don’t think anyone knows for certain. Possibly war in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies (see Psalm 83 war). That seems imminent! Hebrew tradition (not scripture) says that solar eclipses are bad omens for the nations and blood moons are bad omens for Israel. History has pretty much proven that to be true. This requires more study of the subject. The scriptures do have a lot to say about the sun and moon though.
Joel 2:31-32 The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the Lord arrives. But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved, for some on Mount Zion in Jerusalem will escape, just as the Lord has said. These will be among the survivors whom the Lord has called.
Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven.
Luke 21:25-28 And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory.So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”
Revelation 6:12-14 I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood.Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from a tree shaken by a strong wind. The sky was rolled up like a scroll, and all of the mountains and islands were moved from their places.
We need to be paying attention!
