The Real Significance of Much-Discussed Blood Moons

by | May 4, 2015 | Woman

Joel 2:31 says, “The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives.”

Acts 2:20 also says, “The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives.”

Revelation 6:12 states: “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.”

To begin our discussion on the blood moons, it is important that we realize it is biblical, which means they were God’s idea, not man’s. Science continues to confirm the existence and creative genius of God and the blood moons are just another example of that. NASA has a website of all the solar and lunar eclipses that have taken place in the past and that will take place in the future, along with all the blood moons, both past and present. For you that want to do more scientific research on this biblical sign and wonder, I encourage you to do so.

The blood moons are just that, they are a sign God placed in the heavenlies to let us know what is on His calendar (Gen. 1:14). Mark Biltz says, “If you want to know what is on God’s day planner, you need to get on God’s calendar.” Creation is extremely scientific, how the planets, universes, stars and galaxies work is very scientific and by definition mathematical. But for those of us who are not interested in learning higher level math, God breaks it down for us in simpler terms using signs like blood moons.

Four consecutive blood moons is called a Tetrad, over the past 500 years we will have had 4 Tetrads and the significance of this is mind blowing: No. 1, Tetrads are a rare occurrence to begin with; second, they always carry great significance for Israel and the world; and three, to have four in 500 years is showing signs of acceleration of kingdom plans. So, let’s look at what has happened over the past three occurrences of a Tetrad (four consecutive blood moons).

1492-93 Tetrad—The Spanish Inquisition took place, C. Columbus (who is believed to be a Jew) escaped Spain and helped find a place of safety for the Jewish people.

1947-48 Tetrad—Israel became a nation in a day.

1967-68 Tetrad—Jerusalem became the capital of Israel and the Six-Day War happened.

We are in the midst of the 4th of 4 Tetrad’s right now. 2014-15 is the time frame of our current Tetrad, with all the enemies of Israel surrounding them, with America not showing support like we have done in the past, with this being a Shemitah year (Sabbath year for the Jews), we are living in a very strategic time in history. I encourage you to read up on the blood moons from others much smarter than me. Mark Biltz has a book called Blood Moons that is very good. Jonathon Cahn has a book called The Mystery of the Shemitah and The Harbingers which is insightful and John Hagee wrote a book called The Blood Moons, all great resources for further study.

My personal belief is that we are about to have a world-altering, earth-shaking experience this fall that will usher in this kingdom of God and change the face of Christianity forever. It is exciting times to be alive, there is no reason to fear, but it is a time to draw near. Jew and Gentile are going to become one new man, so why not start understanding Jewish things, for they affect us more than we realize. Remember, Jesus, the first apostles, and the majority of the people we read about in the bible were Jewish. They are our history and our future. What a mighty God we serve.
