The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015

A very rare series of 4 lunar eclipses is about to begin, with the first coming up in another week on the 15th of April. This series is being called a blood moon tetrad, and the 4 will appear 6 months apart in 2014 and 2015 in close connection with the Spring and Fall Feasts on the Lord's calendar. I embedded an excellent video explaining the tetrad at the very end of this post.

This tetrad is being widely promoted by Messianic Pastor Mark Biltz. I agree with his conclusions only insofar that this may be considered as an important sign and that it comes in a season when the Lord's harvests will be reaped. This present Shemitah (2012-2019) represents the pivot of the age.

I can't speak to what I don't know, but I'm confident about weighing in on what is signified by 2 of the 4 blood moons because of the timing of other events I know about. The lunar eclipse coming on 4/4/15 has been given some attention already because that's when I'm expecting the lawless one to be revealed. This first one comes a month before mid-May, when I'm expecting a major transitional event that has a link to the flood of Noah, what I also believe is called the Black Awakening.

A lunar eclipse is recognized as a bad omen for Israel, according to Rabbinic tradition. A red moon at lunar eclipse is interpreted to indicate that a sword is coming for the whole world, and while that may or may not generally be so, when it comes to at least 2 of the blood moons of this tetrad, I concur with the Rabbis. A sword is coming for the whole world! This blood moon tetrad will bear witness to serious trouble for everyone as judgment rolls out in the earth!

Right in the midst of the tetrad is a solar eclipse.

15 April 2014 – Lunar (Aus., Pacific, Americas)
8 October 2014 – Lunar (Aus., Pacific, Pacific, Americas)
20 March 2015 – Solar ( n Atlantic, Faeroe Is, Svalbard)
4 April 2015 – Lunar (Aus., Pacific, Pacific, Americas)
28 September 2015 – Lunar (e Pacific, Americas, Europe, Africa, w Asia)

I'm going to provide links to what I've written about the Spring of 2015 near the end of this post. That's when the solar eclipse will be followed 2 weeks later by the lunar eclipse in a season the Bible has so much to say about. You can search this blog to find what's been written about the Black Awakening.

Here's some perspective on the sign of the moon that appears red as blood.

Signs are appearing in the heavens and in the earth. Signs are given to alert and inform us about something important that lies ahead. I have given some of these my attention on The Open Scroll in a study called Heavenly Sign Watching, where you'll find the meaning of comets and eclipses with other kinds of celestial events like gamma radiation bursts and rare planetary alignments. You'll also find links there to other studies where some very key celestial signs are described. A blood red moon is noted in a number of scriptures pertaining to these last days. Others speak of the moon being involved in signs in serious times, and I invite you to explore the contexts of the following as led.

10 Then He continued by saying to them, “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, 11 and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. (Luke 21:20-11) There will be signs in sun and moon and stars (Luke 21:25)

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. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky (Matthew 24:29b-30a)

‘And I will grant wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and glorious day of the Lord shall come. (Acts 2:20)

I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth (Revelation 6:12-13a)

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years (Genesis 1:14)

He made the moon for the seasons (Psalm 104:19a)

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. 2 Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. (Psalm 19:1-2)

Sometimes this striking and ominous visual phenomenon is produced by a lunar eclipse, but not always. When the sky is very dusty or smoky the moon can appear orange or even blood red. Heavy volcanic activity, a nuclear explosion, an asteroid impact or some other event raising dust or smoke into the atmosphere causes such a phenomenon. In scriptures where the moon turning red is linked with the sun turning black, those kinds of atmospheric phenomenon are suggested. Consider Joel 2:28-32, which The Apostle Peter quoted on what may be considered the birthday of the church age, a very special Shavuot.

28 “It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. 29 “Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30 “I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, Blood, fire and columns of smoke. 31 “The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. 32 “And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the Lord Will be delivered; For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem There will be those who escape, As the Lord has said, Even among the survivors whom the Lord calls. ~ Joel 2:28-32

Just before mentioning the moon turning into blood he mentions the sun being turned to darkness, and just before that he mentions fire and columns of smoke, which provides the atmospheric conditions that can so dramatically change the appearance of the sun and moon.

Was Joel identifying a total lunar eclipse like one of the blood moons of the upcoming tetrad? A lunar eclipse wouldn't cause the sun to be turned into darkness, so it's not likely, but that doesn't mean eclipses won't be involved. Certainly a solar eclipse turns the sun into darkness, and such celestial signs may well be synchronized with signs in the earth in days to come as they have been in the past.

It should be noted that there's a distinct bracketing function implied in the pronouncement that was made by Peter on what may be considered the opening day of this age because the events of the close of the age are specifically referenced.

Here's some posts I've published over the last few years linking the full moon and blood moon of April 4, 2015 with the revealing of the lawlessness one that is the subject of 2 Thessalonians 2. This is a very big deal.

Blood Red Moons and the One Who Left with a Bag of Money (6/17/11)
Part 29 - Celestial Stargates - The Celestial Sign of Antichrist * in I, Pet Goat II (12/15/13)
Part 6 - Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 - Fly Away on Wings of Wind (2/21/14)
Part 22 - Rango - The Surreal Dream Sequence and Bible Prophecy (10/22/11)
Part 6 - Pope Francis - Branded with a Celestial Sign Heralding Amaru's Return? (3/29/13)

For some perspective, it should be noted that there have been other tedrads that mark the Feasts, like in 1949-50 and 1967-1968 (historically significant with respect to Israel), and other lunar eclipses at the Holy Days that weren't involved in a tetrad series. This phenomenon is not as rare as some might think because the Jewish calendar is lunar based. However, let's not forget that the Creator planned it that way for his purposes, which makes this kind of sign no less worthy of note. Here's some that took place a few years back while I was watching such signs with interest, and there have been others even more recently.

  • Pesach - April 15, 1995
  • Sukkot - October 8, 1995
  • Pesach - April 3, 1996
  • Sukkot - September 27, 1997
  • Purim - March 23, 1997 - As I watched this one from a favorite local viewing spot, the beautiful darkened and slightly orange-colored Moon in eclipse (all but the top, making it look like it was wearing a yalmarke) was in close proximity to the reddish planet Mars. On the other side of the sky, the comet Hale-Bopp was visible in a glorious display near its closest approach to the Earth.
  • Another lunar eclipse occurred September 16, 1997, about two weeks before Rosh HaShanah, or, in the middle of the time of preparation for the approaching High Holy day season that focuses upon personal reflection and repentance (teshuvah).
