The long awaited super blood moon lunar eclipse is tonight!  You should plan to get outside to catch a glimpse of this rare event (another SBMLE {I just totally made up that acronym!} will not occur until 2033.)  It begins tonight around 8:00 PM EST, with the actual total eclipse beginning at 10:11, arriving at it’s height at 10:47,and ending at 11:23. The weather will play a factor tonight with people in the eastern portion of the country vying for a view between cloudy skies. For a photographer, a few clouds will just add to the drama of the event.

“Blood Moon” is a term used to describe a the color of the moon during a lunar eclipse. When the Moon travels into the shadow of the sun, it appears a blood red color. “Super Moon” is a term used to describe when the moon is full and closest to Earth during it’s orbit. It will appear 14% larger.

You would have to be living in a cave not to have heard the end of the world, bible prophecy chatter. The Mormon church issued a statement declaring the end of the world was not imminent.  If you aren’t a student of bible prophecy you may not realize the importance of this Super-Blood-moon-Lunar-eclipse phenomena. For centuries Christians have been looking for a sign that the return of the Lord, Jesus Christ is imminent. In recent days many biblical and scholarly prophecies have come to pass heightening the interest in this sign in the sky. In the Bible Jesus promised “…And there will be signs in the heavens…”  In Acts 2:19-20, Peter the favored apostle preached “AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE. THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.…” 

Tonight we will witness the final phase in this tetrad. The tetrad means four. In prophecy a tetrad is four total lunar eclipses that also coincide with Jewish feast days. You may think…”So what.  It’s a coincidence.” However the coincidence starts to be more interesting when you are armed with a bit of historical knowledge.

Tetrads typically signify something big for the Jewish people and their Christian counterparts (as we are heirs to Abraham’s promises as well, thanks to the redemption Jesus provided us.) Looking at the last 3 tetrads, you can see several significant events happened that affected the Jewish people and the entire world. 

 

***1493-1494-Jews were being persecuted and driven from their homes. America was discovered which became a haven for Jewish refugees, hence the sign from God that something big was coming.

***1949-1950: Israel became a sovereign nation and recognized as such by the UN.  This is a HUGE event in biblical history as it represents the return of the Jews to their homeland, which was prophesied in Isaiah 11:10-12 “…And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”  This was of extreme importance to the Jewish people.

***1967-1968 This was when the “6 Day War” took place. This reunited God’s holy city, Jerusalem with Israel and also fulfilled Biblical prophecy. 

When a tetrad coincides with a Jewish holiday, we are in for something big from God. Some believe it means the rapture is imminent.  Since all the signs have not yet been fulfilled, my gut is telling me this tetrad may signify the fulfillment ofprophecy when Russia, Iran, Ethiopia, Libya, E. Europe, and possibly Turkey will join forces to attack Israel and will be terribly defeated by the tiny nation. (Youdon’t mess with God’s chosen people.) Watch the news (you will have to dig deep because most news stations will not report it) there is a build up in Iran of Russian forces already.  Whatever is coming, this is a reminder to get yourself and your house in order. Jesus will be coming soon.

” 12 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 in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 13and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 

14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 

16 And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb.

17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to survive?”

~Revelation 6:12-17
