Blood Red Moons - Lunar Eclipses, Solar Eclipses , Meteor Storm, Comets, Earthquakes, Famines, Pestilence, Seas Roaring, Wars and Rumors of Wars – Signs of Christ’s Return all happening in our very near future.

Matthew Chapter 16:3 – Jesus tells believers we should discern the signs of the times.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
God appointed feasts to coincide with the New Moon and has used signs in the heavens many times throughout history to announce His glory and plans for mankind Numbers 10:10 Also at your times of rejoicing—your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts—you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God.”
Eyes glaze over when you mention any information on end times events or predictions. This is the result of men, over time, running around saying the end is near. Many men have even claimed to know the exact day or hour of the return of Christ. The shouts of the end were many times followed by a book deal or a TV show. However the study of the Bible is a highly technical task. The study of history compared to Biblical prophecy is banned in schools today. Even the history of the United States has been altered.


God provided signs that men and Satan could not change that point to the season of the end times. In this case the upcoming Tetrad of blood moons could point to one of the signs given in the bible of the season of the end times.
Red (Blood) Moon -Total lunar eclipses often make the moon appear red.
A World Net Daily story on Blood Moons http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.printable&pageId=63076 brought the information into mainstream prophecy news.


How Does it all Add Up Blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot on back-to-back years has occurred seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the Spanish Inquisition), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) — some of the most significant days in Jewish history.


The Gregorian calendar can vary by weeks from year to year. But, by the Hebrew calendar, the dates for each festival are rigid. Passover (or Pesach) begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, and Sukkot on the 15th of Tishrei.
A rare event will occur in 2014 and 2015 of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad. A solar eclipse separates them on the Jewish New year.
During this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what’s interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God’s holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn’s Feast of Tabernacles occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today’s Gregorian calendar.


In this millennium only 3 tetrads happened on Jewish feast days of Passover and Tabernacles:
1492 – Jews expelled from Spain the Spanish Inquisition
1948 – Israel came back into existence as a Nation
1967 – Israel captures Jerusalem in the 6 day war
2014 - ???
There were no tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Feast of Tabernacles or any feast days.
Solar eclipses happen on the first day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 years.
In 2015 the religious year is beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Tabernacles all in 2015.
We also see from the Greek writings that the blood moon sign happened when Jesus was crucified also:

Report of Pontius Pilate:

And him Herod and Archelaus and Philip, Annas and Caiaphas, with all the people, delivered to me, making a great uproar against me that I should try him. I therefore ordered him to be crucified, having first scourged him, and having found against him no cause of evil accusations or deeds.
And at the time he was crucified there was darkness over all the world, the sun being darkened at mid-day, and the stars appearing, but in them there appeared no luster; and the moon, as if turned into blood, failed in her light.

The Death of Jesus - Solar Eclipse and Earthquake

Matthew 27
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,[c] lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[d]
47When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”
48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
50  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
51  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
54  When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

The Jubilee Connection:

Seven sets of seven years @ 360 days per year from June 7, 1967 when Israel entered Jerusalem is exactly 17,640 days to Sept. 23, 2015 on the Day of Atonement, which is the day to usher in the Jubilee year–the 50th year. 2015 is also a Sabbatical year that occurs once every seven years.
This Tetrad of blood moons on the first and last days of the 7 feasts 4 times in a row won’t happen again for centuries.
*1965-66 (this was 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 1966-67 is Jubilee) Israel captures Jerusalem in 6 day war.
*2014-15 (this will be 7th Shmita/49th year, following year 2015-16 is Jubilee) based on 360 day Hebrew years

Biblical References:

The Bible never states that the blood moons are the “Day of the Lord” or any “Rapture”. It states that it is a sign that the coming of the Lord is near. You are actual told: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only
Matthew 24:36
37  As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
Joel 2:31
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
Revelation 6:12~14
12And 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; 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Luke 21: 25~28
25And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Mark 13:24~25
24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, 25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. 26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Acts 2:20
20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:


Matthew Chapter 24
The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times
24 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”
3As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 23At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
29 “Immediately after the distress of those days“‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[b]
30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth[c] will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.[d] 31And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

The Day and Hour Unknown

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Let see what other signs are happening at the same time!

Comets! – Signs in the Heavens

By late November it will be visible to the unaided eye just after dark in the same direction as the setting Sun. Its tail could stretch like a searchlight into the sky above the horizon. Then it will swing rapidly around the Sun, passing within two million miles of it, far closer than any planet ever does, to emerge visible in the evening sky heading northward towards the pole star. It could be an "unaided eye" object for months. When it is close in its approach to the Sun it could become intensely brilliant but at that stage it would be difficult and dangerous to see without special instrumentation as it would be only a degree from the sun. Remarkably Ison might not be the only spectacular comet visible next year. Another comet, called 2014 L4 (PanSTARRS), was discovered last year and in March and April it could also be a magnificent object in the evening sky. 2013 could be the year of the great comets.

Meteor Storm! – Stars fall from the sky

The predictions are still rough, but three different models suggest the sky show could be spectacular. "All the trails ejected between 1803 and 1924 cross Earth's path in May 2014," notes Jérémie Vaubaillon (IMCEE, France). "As a consequence, this shower might as well be a storm," with the potential to see more than 1,000 meteors per hour under ideal conditions.

Earthquakes: - 400% increase since 2001

The Bible speaks of earthquakes happening in diverse, (different), places when the end of time is approaching. It has many other warnings also, but specifically, it speaks of earthquakes. Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, and Luke 21:11, to be specific, are passages in the Bible that speak of earthquakes in reference to the end of time.
Luke 21:11, clearly says there will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences, in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
These earthquakes have been powerful enough to actually shift the Earth’s axis changing weather patterns and the Jet Stream causing the Major Shifts in our weather patterns.

Time Shortened by Earthquakes!

1.Chile earthquake registered 8.8 magnitude on the Richter scale and the axis about which the Earth’s mass is balanced should have moved by 2.7 milliarcseconds (about 8 centimeters or 3 inches).”
2. In comparison, the 2004 Sumatran quake of magnitude 9.1 shortened the day by 6.8 microseconds and shifted the axis by about 2.3 milliarcseconds.
3. The 9.0 magnitude earthquake that ravaged Japan moved Japan coast 8 feet also shortened Earth's day by just over one-millionth of a second (1.8 microseconds to be exact), according to NASA. It also shifted the Earth's axis by about 6.5 inches.

Wars and Rumors of Wars:

The Bible identifies 9 Future Wars in the Middle East ending with the return of Jesus to the Mount of Olives. ....
1) The War of Extermination — Psalm 83
2) The First War of Gog & Magog —Ezekiel 38 and 39
3) The Conventional War of the Tribulation — Revelation 6
4) The Nuclear War of the Tribulation — Revelation 8 & 9
5) The War in the Heavens — Revelation 12
6) The War against the Jews and the Saints — Revelation 12
7) The Middle East Campaign of the Antichrist — Daniel 11
8) The Battle of Armageddon — Joel 3, Zechariah 14, and Revelation 19
9) The Second Battle of Gog & Magog — Revelation 20

In these series of wars 2/3 of the population of the world will die. All of these wars will happen within a short span of time and we are going to see the start of these events unfold with Israel and Iran going at it very soon. Pray up - Look up for your redemption draws very near!

Christian Persecution and put to Death:

Christians around the world, especially in Muslim countries are heavily persecuted and put to death. Even America has anti-Christian groups that continually try to cover up our true heritage and remove any references to God, Christ, The Bible, Prayers and The Cross from places they were established for decades and centuries. They just recently have beheaded and crucified Christians in Egypt and other “Arab Spring” countries and no reports in the American Press. Churches bombed and burned, Christians murdered while in Church services, Houses and property destroyed or confiscated by Muslims all doing it for their false god Allah. Never let anyone say that Muslims and Christians serve the same god as Allah and Yahweh have nothing in common.

Conclusion
Jesus clearly says that no one will know the day or the hour but that we would know the season. The 5 wise virgins had their lamps full and were ready for the wedding feast.
Every sign that Jesus said would be present at His return is happening around the world with a frequency that has greatly intensified to levels never seen before.
The people in Noah’s day knew that they had 120 years to enter the ark. They knew when the 120 years was drawing to an end. But they did not know the hour or the day that the door to the ark would be closed. They did not know when their last opportunity would come to enter the ark.
Some of the people may have thought that if it started to rain then they would go into the ark. But by the time the rain started it was too late. The door to the ark had already been shut and no on
e else could go in.

A further reinforcement to you fine article on Blood Moon Rising is found in the Book of Ruth, the study of which I just completed. Boaz, of course, represents Jesus Christ, Ruth, represents the Church, and Naomi, the State of Israel in End Time prophecy. The "Gleanings by Ruth in the fields is a picture of the Church saving the last few souls before the Rapture, then the marriage of Boaz and Ruth (the Wedding Supper of the Lamb) and on and on. But what really struck me like a bolt of lightning is the 49 days (prophetic years) which occur between the Barley Harvest (First Fruits) and the Wheat Harvest (Pentecost), or 50 days (years) on a year of Jubilee. Israel did not truly become a nation until she liberated Jerusalem in 1967. So, do the math. Add 49, or 50 years to 1967 and you get 2016, or 2017. Incredible how it is all coming together.
