Blood Moon Eclipses Signify Christs Second Coming in 2015?!

Blood moon eclipses: 2nd Coming in 2015?

Minister uses NASA forecasting to study signals of Jesus’ return

Total lunar eclipses often make the moon appear red

Will Jesus Christ return to Earth in the year 2015?

And can studying NASA’s website provide evidence for such a scenario?

A minister who promotes the Old Testament roots of Christianity suggests a rare string of lunar and solar eclipses said to fall on God’s annual holy days seven years from now could herald what’s come to be known as the “Second Coming” of Jesus.

“God wants us to look at the biblical calendar,” says Mark Biltz, pastor of El Shaddai Ministries in Bonney Lake, Wash. “The reason we need to be watching is [because] He will signal His appearance. But we have to know what to be watching as well. So we need to be watching the biblical holidays.”

In a video interview on the Prophecy in the News website, Biltz said he’s been studying prophecies that focus on the sun and moon, even going back to the book of Genesis where it states the lights in the sky would be “be for signs, and for seasons.”

“It means a signal, kind of like ‘one if by land, two if by sea.’ It’s like God wants to signal us,” he said. “The Hebrew word implies … not only is it a signal, but it’s a signal for coming or His appearing.”

Biltz adds the word “seasons” implies appointed times for God’s feasts and festivals.

“When we hear the word feast, we think food. But the Hebrew word has nothing to do with food. It has to do with a divine appointment, as if God has a day timer, and He says, ‘OK, I’m gonna mark the day and the time when I’m going to signal My appearance.’”

In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)

In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted as saying, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light … And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:29-30)

Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News noted, “When we think of the sun being darkened and the moon not giving her light, we usually think of some astronomical catastrophe – perhaps the sun sputtering and the moon being affected by all this. But maybe it’s time to rethink this a little bit and think of it as a natural cycle, the cycle of the eclipses.”

Phases of lunar and solar eclipses on NASA’s eclipse website

Thus, Biltz began focusing on the precise times of both solar and lunar eclipses, sometimes called “blood moons” since the moon often takes on a bloody color. He logged onto NASA’s eclipse website which provides precision tracking of the celestial events.

He noted a rare phenomenon of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad.

He says 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 (also called Succoth) occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today’s Gregorian calendar.

“The fact that it doesn’t happen again in this century I think is very significant,” Biltz explains. “So then I looked at last century, and, believe it or not, the last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem recaptured by Israel.”

He then started to notice a pattern of the tetrads.

“What’s significant to me is that even before 1967, the next time that you had four blood red moons again was right after Israel became a nation in ’48, it happened again in 1949 and 1950 … on Passover and Succoth. You didn’t have any astronomical tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Succoth.”

When checking the schedule for solar eclipses, Biltz found two – one 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 year.

The sun’s corona becomes visible during a solar eclipse

Biltz says, “You have the religious year 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 Succoth all in 2015.”

“If you think that this is a coincidence, I want you to know that it’s time!” exclaimed Prophecy in the News host J.R. Church. “There are no more of these for the rest of the century.”

The prospect of eclipses pinpointing the time of Jesus’ return is getting mixed reaction in Christian circles.

After seeing Biltz’s interview, Jim Bramlett, an author and former vice president for the Christian Broadcasting Network, expressed excitement.

“I have just watched the program two times and do not think I have ever been more encouraged or excited about the soon return of the Lord!” Bramlett said.

But Hal Lindsey, a well-known biblical analyst and author of “The Late Great Planet Earth,” says while he hasn’t heard of Biltz’s theory, he called it “pure speculation.”

“In my 50-something years of studying prophecy, to me the greatest indication of the time of Christ’s return is based around the general things of prophecies coming together in the same time frame.”

He mentioned not only Israel’s birth as a political state in 1948, but the increase in tensions with Muslims, the rise of Russia, China and the European Union, which he says is even “calling itself the revived Roman Empire.”

“I see the whole sweep and panorama spinning together in a precise scenario,” he said.

During a second video interview, Biltz was presented with Bible quotes that many think suggest Jesus’ return will be a complete surprise, or at least not specifically known.

The 25th chapter of Matthew features a parable where Jesus likens His kingdom to ten virgins all waiting for the arrival of their bridegroom.

Jesus said in the story, “ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” (Matthew 25:13)

Biltz says people need to examine the quote in its proper context.

“When He says you don’t know the day or the hour, He’s speaking to the foolish virgins, not the wise virgins,” he explained.

Biltz was also asked about the famous statement in Matthew 24:36 when Jesus was discussing the signs of His “coming, and of the end of the world”: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)

He responded by referring to the annual Feast of Trumpets holiday, saying Israelites never knew the precise moment it began, “because it was based on the sighting of the new moon.”

“When He (Jesus) says you won’t know the day or the hour, He’s telling you it’s the Feast of Trumpets because that was known as the feast where no one knew the day or the hour that it would begin,” said Biltz. “So it’s kind of like if I told you, ‘I’m not going to tell you when I’m coming, but “Gobble, gobble, gobble,’” [pointing to] Turkey Day.”

Church stressed despite the information suggesting 2015 could be a pivotal time, “We don’t know that that will be the concluding year of the tribulation period … so we’re not setting a date and saying this is a warning. We’re introducing the possibility of a watch.”

    WIth the way things have been going, it’s hard to believe we even have that long to go before the rapture…2015… things already seem to be getting worse and worse by the day.

    • gdk4god

      I agree wholeheartedly Lyn. I believe that the rapture will occur sooner. Things are speeding up at a very rapid rate. Everything just seems to keep falling right into place! The destruction of Damascus is happening before our eyes. The Syrian civil war seems to be drawing enemies of Israel right to it’s door steps. Evil is pervasive. What next? A major attack on Israel? When will the anti-christ appear as the World leader? It seems that all of these things are all set and ready to occur.

      • Lyn Leahz

        I don’t know if you knew about this, but this passed March when we had a lunar eclipse…the moon was reddish looking. There was a bunch of articles explaining what gives it the red glow. We’ve also had the red rain…over in the eastern half of the world. However, if we are already in the tribulation…not the great tribulation..that is the last 3.5 years…but the first half…and the Mid Trib theory is right..then 2015 would be correct. Mid trib people believe the tribulation started in the middle to end of 2011…that would put the rapture sometime in the middle of 2015.

      • gdk4god

        There have also been numerous reports of all kinds of strange prophetic events occurring over the past two years! Birds falling dead from the sky; rivers turning to blood; strange noises, including a sound like a shofar; strange events in the sky including: UFOs, strange cloud formations. I don’t know if you have ever seen any of “eternalryhthymflow” videos on youtube? He is great at bible prophecy, really studying scripture and Jewish culture. He has a video regarding these very same “blood moons” called a Tetrad, in relation to the rapture.
        I believe in pre-trib, but, hey who knows for sure. But, I do believe that the tribulation will not begin until the seven year peace treaty offered by the anti-christ is signed between Israel and the Palestinians. This may occur very soon the way things are winding up.

      • gdk4god

        I don’t know if you are aware of this Lyn. But, the last time we had a blood moon tetrad was during the Israeli-Arab 1967 War when Israel reclaimed Jerusalem; the last time before that was right after Israel became a nation in 1948! Huge biblical events regarding Israel happened before or during these tetrads!

        The Antichrist will appear in the appointing of the new pope. If you go by Daniel’s timeline, as given to him by Gabriel, it should be on or about March 12th, 2013! praise God, for He is near!!!

      • andyr177

        I’ve recently seen a few videos claiming that the Antichrist will appear in the appointing of the new pope. If you go by Daniel’s timeline, as given to him by Gabriel, it should be on or about March 12th, 2013! Praise God, for He is near!!! How does anyone else feel about this?

    • ProclaimingGodsTruth

      Please consider that if the rapture occurs this year -2013- at the Feast of Trumpets – that this would be a milestone eye-opening event for the world and Israel. The rapture will occur at the Feast of Trumpets as this is the next (of the seven) feasts to be fulfilled.
      Thoughts…?

      • Gordon King

        It could very well be. The year 2014 will be the beginning of a “blood moon tetrad” beginning on the Feast of Trumpets. Very significant events occurred regarding the Jewish people before these moons in the past. We could see the rapture occur this year!

        It will definitely be an eye opening event for many. At the same time, there will be much evil and deception in the world. Many will be deceived by Satan.

        God Bless!

    • Patricia Anders

      yes. what about May of 2018? blood moons and dark sun AFTER Pentecost that year? signalling the end of Day Two and the beginning of Day Three RE Hosea, with the Jews last chance, to get it right with God, BEFORE He gave it over to the Gentile CHURCH AGE. ??? best, pattie anne

  2. Lyn Leahz

    Yes, I have a bunch of posts on my Lyn Leahz page about all that, including the videos. Interesting stuff. I don’t know anymore..truly. I know there is a passage in the Bible, and I am not quoting it word for word..but it had to do with things in the book of Revelation being revealed (a mystery) to people who were blessed during the time when the events were unfolding. I wish I could remember the passage… but certain things would be a mystery until they happened, and only people with understanding would be able to decipher the mystery. So, maybe there are things we ‘think’ we have interpreted correctly (as prophecy scholars have admittedly been wrong on many other occasions…what hasn’t happened is always hard to figure out exactly) yet we haven’t. What confuses me is that, these very signs you have mentioned that I have seen are only for the tribulation time…or they wouldn’t have been given to us. If Jesus knew they would be common, then He wouldn’t have given them to us for this day. I have also heard that the seals are not God’s judgments, but the opening of His judgments. So there are many pre trib people already, because of these signs, believing we are seeing the opening of the seals. Also, there is speculation regarding what so many years are on the Jewish calendar..and the fact that back in the 60′s (1967) I think it was…a seven year peace treaty was signed. Who knows anymore. All I know is I definitely believe we’re seeing the opening of the seals…and that Jesus is coming soon, and I want to be ready. Amen?

    • gdk4god

      Oh, you mentioned the seven year peace treaty in 1967. The peace treaty that I am talking about occurs when the anti-christ is revealed to the world. This begins the prophetic clock….after 3.5 years in the middle of the treaty the anti-christ breaks the treaty and sits in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Temple will be rebuilt most likely during the first 3.5 years. Then in the middle of the tribulation occurs the “abomination of desolation” when the anti-christ sits in the “Holy of Holies” and proclaims to the world that he is God! The “Holy of Holies” is only for God. Then the anti-christ will attempt to annihilate the Jews. Many of them will escape into the desert (most likey Petra in Jordan) and the Lord will protect them.

      I believe that if we were in the tribulation period that times will be much worse than they are today. Also God says that he will protect us and keep us from his wrath and judgement.

      1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 speaks of the rapture and at the end says comfort one another with these words. If we were to remain in the tribulation that is not comforting to know.

      Isaiah 26:19-21 also speaks of the rapture and God’s people (christians) taking refuge from the coming judgement. He says to enter your chambers and shut the doors behind you.
      When John enters heaven in Revelation 4 he says “behold a door standing open in heaven.” I believe this may be the door spoken of in Isaiah 26:20

      Revelation 4:1 John is standing at a door in heaven. He said he heard a voice like a trumpet (the trump of God, God’s voice, not part of the seven trumpet judgements) The voice said come up here and I will show you what must take place “after this”. I believe he meant the rapture when he said “after this”, because nothing else had occurred. I believe this is mirroring the rapture in 1 Thess. 4:16-18, Corinth 15:52, Isaiah 26:19-21.
      Also the church is not mentioned as being on earth after Revelation chapter 3 and not on earth again until the return of Christ on the Mount of Olives.

      These are some of the reasons that I believe in the pre-trib rapture.

      God speaks of many mysteries. To me, many of them make sense in our times. They seem very clear.

      • Lyn Leahz

        No….;-) I was saying that there are some people who have talked about something to do with the Jewish Calendar and what 7 years are on the Jewish calendar. Apparently, and I’m not sure which one it was because I never looked that deeply into it..but it was either the peace treaty you mentioned, or the one in 1967…it was a seven year peace treaty. There are those who believe that this was the peace treaty mentioned in the book of revelation. Me personally…I do not believe that… but it was something I had read about a few times I was just sharing with you…out of interest. The people who have written about this use something in Daniel..I can’t remember. Like I said, because I don’t necessarily believe that, I did not take enough time to really research it in depth.

      • gdk4god

        I understand Lyn.

        Oh, I found out more regarding the blood moon tetrads. The moons all fall on Jewish feast days! What?!!! Passover and the feast of Tabernacles during both years on the Jewish calendar!

        This also occurred on the tetrads of 1967-1968 and 1949-1950 and another 1493-1494 during the Spanish inquisition when all of the Jews were dispersed. These “Tetrads” are very Rare! Each time they occurred something “Very” significant has happened to Israel or the Jewish people!

        This is very exciting! This is another way that God is telling us to watch and be ready. That he is coming soon!

        God Bless! :-)

  3. Lyn Leahz

    No..didn’t know that. Something else interesting, did you know they didn’t actually become a WHOLE nation again, according to what the Bible defines them as becoming a nation, until 1967 when the finally re-took Jerusalem?

    • gdk4god

      Actually I have never heard that before but it makes sense. All I know is that all of these signs combined represent the end times, the closeness of the rapture and the second coming of Christ! Amen We must be prepared and stay ready and watchful. :-)
      P.S. I just pray that there were not so many doubters and scoffers! It amazes me that with everything going on in the world today that more people don’t believe the same as we do. Most people just laugh at me or think that I must be off the deep end!!! What amazes me even more is that Jesus himself told us that it would be this way! ;-)

  4. justin

    Well, good luck on that one.
    How the blood moon equates to the second coming I am not sure.
    No one will know the day as it comes like a thief in the night.

    • gdk4god

      Justin, just for the record, this is not my article. I posted it from WND.com, it was written by Joe Kovacs.

      You are partially correct. No one will know the day or the hour. However, Jesus himself commands believers to watch for his coming. He does want his followers to know when he is coming so that they are aware and prepared!

      1Thessalonians 5:6…Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

      Revelation 3:3…Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

      So God is telling us to watch or he will come upon us as a thief in the night!

      The true believers in Christ can know when he is ready to return. However, we will not know the day or the hour.

      That is what this website is all about. Warning others that Christ is very close to returning!

      The Blood Red Moon Tetrads are very rare occurrences.
      1) The past three series of blood red moons (tetrads) all fell on Jewish feast days.
      2) The First of 1493 through 1494 was tied to the repulsion of the Jews from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition.
      3) The Second Tetrad of 1949 through 1950 was tied to the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Declared May 14, 1948.
      4) The Tetrad of 1967 – 1968 was tied to the 6th day war where Israel took Jerusalem.

      All of these events correlated with an extremely important Jewish event.

      What does this mean? Well it means that there is an extremely high probability that another important Jewish event will occur before or during this next Tetrad! What that could be is any bodies guess. Seven year peace treaty? Rebuilding of the Jewish temple? Who knows? The point is that we need to be watching for these signs. This is a very significant sign for the return of Jesus Christ.

      I suggest you google these blood red moon tetrads and do more research for yourself.

      God Bless! :-)

    • Patricia Anders

      the reason Jesus said, “… not knowing the Day or the Hour,” He was describing a ROUND WORLD (which BTW HE CREATED) with 24 time zones (HOURS) and spanning two times (DAYS). let us say He comes back right now: it is 9:50PM in England, and it is Thursday, … that means, in Perth, Australia, is it 4:50AM and it is Friday.

  5. Michele

    Yes Amen! To learn more about these Four Blood Moons and or The Coming Four Blood Moons go to Al Shaddai Ministries where pastor Biltz explains his findings which are NASA confirmed. Also there are CD’s you can purchase on these Blood Moons on John Hagee Ministries site. The End is approaching possibly October 2015 or 2018. These Blood Moons coincide with the Hebrew Feasts of Passover and Sukkot (Tabernacles)

  6. Michele

    These Four Blood Moons (Tetrad) will not occur for 500 more years. This should awaken the world to what is quickly approaching!

  7. Anonymous

    I agree completely that something significant will be occurring during the blood moon tetrads scheduled for 2014-2015 in regards to Israel and the Jewish people, God’s chosen people. I also feel the same way that most people think you are a lunatic by paying attention to these signs, which are expressed in the Book of Joel, “I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke. Also, God said you will not know the time or the day, but you will know the season.

    • Gordon King

      Thanks for your comment and encouragement!

      Another thing about the tetrads, is that something very significant has happened to Israel just before the tetrads occured (usually the year before). Could there be a very significant event happening in 2013 before the tetrads? Things are sure heating up. Prophecy is unfolding faster and faster each day it seems.

      God Bless! ;-)

        Psa 89:37 It shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah

        God calls the MOON a faithful witness…….and so is the Sun…. speaking of the sun and moon in…..
        Gen 1:14….. Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

        These signs in the heavens are for us. The world will not even consider these things, because they put no significance at all to the Holy Days of God. These eclipses will come and go and the world will not even notice……..But WE will notice.

        These are special signs just FOR US! Now……what do they mean?
        Some are saying that Christ will return during that time period. That would be fine with me, but it would go against His own scriptures. Other things need to happen first.
        In the past God sent these tetrads after He caused major events to happen…..it was like He was putting His signature at the end of the document…..and HE signed it with BLOOD MOONS.

        So perhaps something big is in store for this year we are in now, since the tetrad will be starting next year.
        I think maybe the tetrad will also be emphasizing the start of something, not the end of something.

        -Perhaps the start of the tribulation…….
        -Perhaps the start of the TIME of JACOB’s trouble.
        -Perhaps the beginning of the “famine of the word”.
        -Perhaps the start of rebuilding the temple.
        -Perhaps the start and stop of the sacrifices.
        -Perhaps the 2 witnesses start their ministry then.
        -Perhaps the sealing of the saints of God.
        -Perhaps the man of sin will be revealed.
        - Maybe all of these things……. I just don’t know…..but we all know time is short, and this world is in trouble.

        In (Joel 2:31), the prophet Joel states,

        “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”
        In (Matthew 24:29-30)
        Jesus is quoted as saying, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light … And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

        There are many other events that will happen after this final tetrad and they will be on a grander and scarier scale than just an eclipse. The book of Revelation is full of dreadful end time events which just may come after this final tetrad.

        Rev 6:12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.
        Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
        Rev 6:14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

        Of course, God can cause the sun to turn black as sack cloth and the moon to take on the color of blood without any eclipse occurring, just by smoke and stuff in the atmosphere. But He is sending us signs before those events.

  8. Shoshannah

    I agree with you all, but in all honesty, I don’t think we will be able to decipher exactly every single detail in matching prophecy with world events though. I believe we will be able to get very close though…..especially if we continue in prayer without ceasing as often as we can and have faith that the Ruach ha Qodesh will guide us in all Truth as he has in the past.

    In 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But you brothers are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. We can fairly accurately assume that Yahushua will return on Feast of Trumpets but the reason we can’t know the day or the hour (Matt. 24:36), is that the Feast of Trumpets is a New Moon Day and the first sliver of the moon must be sighted in Yisrael and then we know if it is the 1st day of the 7th month, the Feast of Trumpets. This is about as close as we can get that is why we are told to watch and be ready.

    Also in Matthew 24:21,22 “For then there shall be great distress, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Vs. 22 “And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the chosen ones those days shall be shortened.

    All of these scriptures speak volumes but only to those who have ears to hear. I am very saddened that some people’s ears and eyes will never be opened to hear and see clearly. Luke 21:36 Watch then at all times, and pray that you be counted worthy to escape all this about to take place and to stand before the Son of Adam. Zephaniah 2:3 “Seek Yahuah all you meek ones of the earth, who have done His Right-Ruling. Seek righteousness, seek meekness, if so be that you are hidden in the day of wrath of Yahuah.”

    Shalom and many blessings

    • Gordon King

      I agree. No one knows the hour of Christ’s return for the church. But, he did tell us to watch and be prepared. That is what my ministry is all about.
      Peace to you and God Bless! Amen Maranatha!

    I FIND IT EASY TO BELIEVE THAT THE RAPTURE IS NEAR AND THAT THE TRIBULATION ISCLOSE. THE WORLD IS OVERPOPULATED, HUNGER ABOUNDS WORLDWIDE, SINKHOLES IN THE US AND OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD ARE INCREASING. JONATHAN CAANE IS SHOWING THAT THE DOWNFALL OF THE US IS IDENTICAL TO ISREAL’S. WHAT MORE DO WE NEED TO SEE WITH THE 4 BLOOD MOONS THAT THAT CHRIST’S COMING IS NEAR. I WANT TO BE READY. CHRISTIANS ARE JUST FORGIVEN SINNERS WASHED CLEAN BY THE SHED BLOOD OF OUR SAVIOR AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE HE HAS FOR US.

    my son has been known to get prophetic dreams last year he dreamed that he saw a whole field of army jeeps and in it were soldiers shooting missles from east to west the missles were flying in pairs of two all at the Same time and when he looked up he saw that the moon was blood red when I asked him what did u do he said all he could do was watch no one could see him he told me as he prayed he woke up what could this dream mean

    I appreciate these comments because we all seem to be striving to better understand the Lord’s plan & purpose for us during these uncertain times. I am so glad that God gave us so many men who faithfully recorded in scripture exactly what He spoke so we could understand His will, purpose & timing in order to set aside our fears. Hindsight is 20/20 & I would like to remind you of how God perfectly orchestrated the timing of Jesus’ entire life- including His birth, His seed sowing teaching & witness in supernatural power to the unbelieving Judeans & Galileans, the fulfillment of countless prophecies at their proper time. For example, (after raising Lazarus from the dead) the Triumphant Entry into Jerusalem through the Eastern Gate as a sacrificial, humble, servant riding a donkey at the same time that the priests & High Priest were singing the Great Hallel of Psalm 118 at the Northern Gate with the sacrificial lamb for the nation present- at the start of Passover! The festivals of Unleaven Bread, Passover, & First Fruits were all celebrated exactly in synchronization with the death, burial & resurrection of Christ. Next, came the counting of the Omar for 50 days until Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first believing Jews. All of these things happened exactly at the times that God had made them rehearse- for literally thousands of years! After a lot of study, I have come to believe that I was not appreciative of the intricate & organized plans of God. Who has known the mind of God? However, we all find ourselves striving to learn more about the future. I believe that the timing is all laid out in the next three feasts. I suggest that you study a book on the subject such as ‘Celebrating Jesus In The Biblical Feasts’ by Dr. Richard Booker. Over the next year or two we likely will hear the sounding of many trumpets!

    • Gordon King

      Amen! Well said. Yes, God is detail oriented with a plan for everything. He created the universe and everything in it, how much more detailed can you get? The blood moons are coming soon. God Bless!

    It really is aggravating to have someone pull one verse out and then push their own agenda. The whole point of not knowing the day nor hour is not to direct it at foolish virgins, but to all of mankind. Blitz could do well to consider this instead of foolishly promoting his own meaning. God’s word to us is sufficient. His need to glean something else reminds me more of those foolish virgins than the wise ones. Perhaps Blitz needs more oil from the Lord, and less of the oil provided by the vanity of his mind!

    [Interesting stuff, Joe. What follows is a thing I ran across lately on the ever present web. Reaction?]

    Evangelicals Use Occult Deception !

    Heard of the coming blood moons? Is the pretrib rapture symbolized by anything in the heavens?
    Hal Lindsey, influenced by occult astrology, asserts on p. 124 in “The Late Great Planet Earth” that the famous Sphinx in Egypt has the head of a “woman” – even though encyclopedias say it’s the head of a “man”! Hal’s plagiarism on that page of a 19th century British theologian is his acceptance of the occult Virgo-to-Leo theory – a “Christian” zodiac arbitrarily starting with Virgo (Virgin Mary) and ending with Leo (Christ returning as “Lion,” Rev. 5:5).
    Those who swallow this guesswork often see Ursa Minor (part of Cancer which precedes Leo) as a heavenly “symbol” of a pretrib rapture!
    Pretribs also insist on separating the “church” from “Israel” – but when you aren’t looking (or thinking) they blithely “prove” pretrib by the Jewish feasts in Leviticus, the stages of a Hebrew wedding (Google “Pretrib Rapture: A Staged Event”), and the one “taken” and the other “left” in “Jewish” Matthew 24!
    Amazingly, Jewishness (and even anti-Jewishness) has been uncovered even in pretrib dispensationalism’s 19th century foundation (Google “Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism”)!
    The current “blood moons” craze (promoted by lunar persons including rock musician Scottie Clarke and John Hagee) is tied to – you guessed it – the same Jewish feast days.
    Yes, there’s something colored red in the future of the church, but I don’t have moons in mind. What will really turn red will be the collective faces of many when it finally dawns on them that their any-moment fly-away was nothing more than an end time hoax!

    The blood moon is in several scriptures. How else can you interpret that. The “sun turning to black as sackcloth …” is either symbolic for a solar eclipse or while 1/3 of the planet is on fire (Rev. 8:7) due to wars, volcanic eruptions, asteroids or a massive worldwide earthquake (Rev. 16:18); smoke fills at least that part of the world blocking out the suns rays.
    If the blood moons accompanied by the solar eclipse in 2015 precede the Second Coming, which would be a final confirmation (since 1948 & 1967 were major signs as well), then where do the Two Witnesses fit in? They preach for 1260 days, are then murdered by the antichrist, lie in the street for 3 1/2 days and then are resurrected and ascend to heaven. Their purpose: to evangelize the 144k Jews (in addition to 1/3 remnant of their entire Jewish population) who are marked prior to the destruction of the earth (see Rev.7:3.) This happens just prior to the 7th Trumpet (the last trump btw), when we are changed and Jesus arrives. So to wrap things up, 1260 of preaching goes on prior to His return, if I got it right … maybe not. So, where are these two witnesses (Enoch, Elijah or Moses?). Sept/Oct. 2015 is 20 months away. When every eye sees Him, they will know who their Messiah is and mourn_ hence, no more need of Two Witnesses to evangelize them. So the timeline doesn’t work. A Peace Treaty lasting 3 1/2 years doesn’t fit either. ???
    If the Pre-Trib view is correct, (and believe me, I would prefer it that way), then the so called secret coming/rapture would make sense with the two witnesses arriving at that time of confusion …”Where did 2 billion Christians go, they’ll wonder?” The two witnesses wouldn’t have to preach anything, they would just come and say, “Hey folks, why look so surprised, didn’t you read the “Left Behind” Series?” Ronald D.

      diciple4all, it seems to me that you are mixing several different things together & then coming to the conclusion that the timeline cannot work. If the timeline can’t work then some of your suppositions must be wrong. As far as Revelation, which is divided into 12 sections, one must carefully consider both who is speaking {angels, for example} & the place that each of the events is occurring {heavenly vision, or earthly vision}, in order to make some sense of the whole prophetic picture. Revelation 7:3 actually occurs just before the 7th Seal & all of the 7 Trumpet judgments of this great book. My late father, who happened to be a brilliant engineer & a devoted Christian, always discouraged me from having any concern over the study of prophecy & end time events. It wasn’t until last year that I finally realized his reason for this. The doctrines of the Protestant denominations throughout his lifetime & to the present predominately teach post-tribulational views. The problem is that there is no complete coherence in this view & this result of confusion was a great bother to him. In other words, it can never completely put the puzzle together. You ask, “So, where are these two witnesses?” I will ask a more important question- what happened to and where is the Church while this is going on? {Answer at bottom.} This new question raises a fundamental problem that the “accepted church post-trib doctrine” cannot get around! {Ans: The church is raptured to heaven, married to Jesus over a week of years, & comes back to earth with Him during the Second Coming.} Another BIG problem we have in our Romanized, Western, gentile, church is that we don’t understand the idioms that Jesus was speaking, or His Jewish culture, or the timing or place that He performed each of His testifying miracles. I suggest that you watch youtube.com & study the books & teachings of Mark Biltz, Chuck Missler{ Youtube/ Rapture Date Set??? EternalRythmFlow channel}, J. R. Church, & Richard Booker. Pertinent topics are the Jewish feasts/rehearsals {Rosh Hashanna = Feast of Trumpets with its Last Trumpet, I Cor. 15:51-57} as well as ties between Jewish courtship/wedding & the Rapture, the menorah pattern throughout scripture, & the letters of the Hebrew Alef-Beit. Believe me there is an incomprehensible depth to the Old & New Testaments once you begin to get a Jewish perspective on the bible. I believe Jesus is saying to all believers in these last days, “Fear not” & “Be watchful” Luke 21:29-36. The Jewish scholar Paul fully understood that the Rapture & Second Coming were separate events in I Thess. 5:1-11. {Answer to Revelation timeline: The church raptures to heaven, marries Jesus over a week of years [during the same Tribulation period!], & comes back to earth with Him during the Second Coming.} I hope that you will come not only to prefer, but believe in the pre-tribulation view where all pieces can be put in place.

    i had a very vivid and wierd dream a month ago..i was floating in space and looking at earth and was seeing the continents like of a map then i heard someone spoke january 2015 the return of christ. good thing theres no exact day or hour only the one im mention..hope its a revelation

  17. Barry

    No Chance. Many other things need to happen first prophetically. (temple sacrifice started and then stopped. 2 witnesses on scene and then killed) It will be at least another 3.5 years, but things are heating up to the boiling point. We keep God’s Holy days, so these blood moons are very exciting to us (we are Sabbath keeping Christians). Watch also the Jewish month Elul, on the 29th day in 2015. I think something big might happen the next day, Tishri 1st, Feast of Trumpets.

      Pre MId Post, the bottom line is you have to be ready. We need to be busy about the Fathers business in the meantime. We should occupy till he comes!

  18. Torie L. C.

    I understood by hearing the George Norry Radio Show with the Pastor Mark as a Quest that the 4 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipses are all on Jewish Holy Days, but could you email me these exact dates again and their exact Holy Days? Its Positive Gospel-Good News!

    • Barry

      NOTE: These Feast days are GOD’s feast days, not Moses’, or Israels’, or just the Jews’. (see Leviticus 23,)
      Jesus and the Apostles kept these days…..so should we.

      2014: April 15, First Day of unleavened Bread- The 1st of 4 blood moon lunar eclipses Will be seen in most all USA & Canada. Hawaii & Western S. America. Starts early on 15th (1:00 a.m. Central Daylight time) Ends @ 4:30 a.m. (2:45 a.m. is the midpoint)

      -April 29, 2014, we have a Total Solar Eclipse. (can be seen in Australia)

      -Thu. October 8, 2014 there will be a lunar Blood Moon eclipse on the First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles.
      Oct. 8 – Will be seen in Western USA. & Canada. Hawaii. East Australia and East Asia.
      Starts 4:15 a.m. CDT and ends 7:34 a.m. setting in the west that morning. (6 a.m. is the midpoint) The Feast of Tabernacles starts that evening on Oct. 8.

      - Mar 20 2015, another Total solar eclipse, this one is showing us the START OF GOD’S NEW YEAR on the Jewish Calendar…THE FIRST DAY OF ABIB…..during the NEW MOON. Will be seen in Europe, Russia, parts of Asia, British Isles, Greenland and parts of Canada.
      Then 14 days later …….

      - Saturday, April 4th, 2015 there will be the third Blood Moon eclipse on the First Day of Unleavened Bread..
      April 4, First day of Unleavened Bread- Will be seen in Australia, New Zealand, East Asia, Alaska and Hawaii.
      Western USA as moon is setting. We will be able to see most of it from here.
      Starts 5:15 a.m. and ends 8:45 a.m. Midpoint is 7:00 a.m

      -Monday, September 13, 2015 there will be a partial Solar eclipse one day before the FEAST OF TRUMPETS (new moon) Seen only in S. Africa and Antarctica. (the Jewish date is Elul 29, 7 years prior to this (on ELul 29) was the biggest stock market crash in history, 7 years to the day (Elul 29) before that was the 2nd biggest crash. There will be no crash on that day in 2015…..because it will be a Sunday, Markets will open on Monday, which is one of God’s Holy Days. (ref. “The Harbinger” by J. Cahn)

      -Monday, September 28, 2015 there will be a lunar Blood Moon eclipse on the First Day of the Feast of Tabernacles.
      Sept. 28- FDFOT- Will be seen from all S. America. East half of USA including MO. and Canada. Europe, British Isles. Western half of Africa.
      Moon will be rising in the east, in the evening as Feast of Tabernacles is starting on opening night.
      Starts- 8:00 p.m, Ends-11:30 p.m. Midpoint is 9:45 p.m.

      That is the end of the last Blood Moon (Holy Day) Tetrad for five hundred years. But notice what happens in 2016.

      -On March 08, 2016 there is another Total Eclipse of the sun, and then 45 days later on

      -Sat. 23 April 2016 we have the First Day of Unleavened Bread.
      So the March 9th solar eclipse is 45 days before the first Holy Day.( 45 days?…..I am not even going to mention Daniel 12 :11)

      - 2017 August 21 – another total solar eclipse

      The significance of these eclipses is ASTOUNDING!………In 2015, the solar eclipse 14 days before the First Day of Unleavened Bread would be the 1st of Abib….the first day of God’s calendar year……Is God putting emphasis on exactly when His year is to start, and when His Holy Days are to be kept? You bet He is!

      One thing for sure is the calendar issue should be settled once and for all. We will be able to either confirm or deny the accuracy of our Holy Day calendars and whether or not we are keeping them on the right day by watching when the blood moons occur. Jesus said in Mat 18:16 ‘BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES EVERY WORD MAY BE ESTABLISHED.’

      The sun and the moon are 2 faithful witnesses, and there will be four Holy Day occurrences with blood moons. There will be 3 full solar eclipses over the next 3 years. Plenty of witnesses……and it is God who will be putting those witnesses on the stand….and prove to us when His Holy Days occur.

    Greetings, Thank you for posting the informative answers I sure everyone wanted to know on this post, and May Blessings come your way Barry. Its important we all are informed of the exact facts so we may represent this subject and pass it on for Christ!

  20. Luke

    the seven year period known as the great tribulation wont start until the peace treaty is made between israel and the middle east. the antichrist will help get this peace agreement possible. 3.5 years later the arabs will break the agreement like they always do and then jesus will come back down 3.5 years from that point on.

    Where most people respond with straw man building and general insults, I would like to simply remind what has been written in the past. Mark Biltz as I am now reading his book refers to a dress rehearsal on Rosh ha Shanah September 14 or 15 , 2015. I am excepting that as true because I already believe in D. James Kennedy’s promotion of the Gospel in the Stars. My under standing briefly is that Christ was born as the Age of Aries the RAM ended. Thirty years later near HIS birthday HE quoted Isaiah 61: 1 & 2 in Luke 4. This action by HIM began the Age of Pisces the FISH, that will end on the September 2015 Feast of Trumpets. Yeshua did not speak the word Vengeance from Isaiah 61 into Luke 4. As a result of the word Vengeance not be spoken by Yeshua, the Rapture and Tribulation will occur later after world wide evangelism will follow this world wide debt cancelling JUBILEE. This day is going to be though only a dress rehearsal of the Rapture of the Church that will take down the London and New York banks for their criminal behavior before a Holy Righteous God on HIS planet earth. Humanity has been enslaved by criminal banker gangsters and HE prophesied this event in the synagogue in Nazareth that day. HE knew this evil enslavement of humanity by criminal bankers would come to be. The Old World Order will die that day some time later the New World Order will begin. The British Empire for those that study closely has been the emerging Old World Order and almost no one was paying adequate attention to that fact but Dr. John Coleman was.

    I agree that Jesus is coming very soon! In reading comments, someone mentioned people needing to be prepared. Does that suggest that people need to get as close to the Lord as possible? Or is there another meaning?

    • Gordon King

      The best thing that you could do is be saved. Remain close to the Lord, give Him thanks and praise daily. Keep Him first in all things.
      With that being said, it is never a foolish thing to also be prepared physically for disasters. However, this will not save you.
      God Bless Donna!
