'Blood Moon' Eclipse on Holy Monday Sparks Prophecies of 'Rapture'
BreitBart ^ | 4-13-2014 | Joel Pollack

Posted on 04/14/2014 6:10:34 PM PDT by equalator

A rare "blood moon tetrad" will arrive with the start of a total lunar eclipse, beginning late on Monday evening--or, for most of the East Coast, early Tuesday. The eclipse, in which the full moon will be darkened by the earth's shadow, will coincide with the Jewish festival of Passover. In a bizarre, rare calendrical coincidence, the Jewish holiday of Sukkot in October will also feature a solar eclipse--as will both Passover and Sukkot next year as well.

Okay, since these blood moons occur on Hebrew Holy days, I assume if there is an event coming within the year, it pertains to the Jews. After all, apparently four consecutive blood red moons happened in 1948 just as Israel became a country again, as prophesied and in 1949-1950, on Passover. The last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem, recaptured by Israel.

So, I'm just throwing this out there- that these moons don't necessarily forecast doom and gloom-- I think that Israel will score an impressive military victory over her enemies. After all, in a future time, Israel is said to be a land of unwalled villages, at peace:

"And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates."-Ezekiel 38:11

Israel, at present, is not a land at peace, of unwalled villages. Could this event, during this year usher in a very short time of peace? Could they take out Damascus? Iran? The Palestinians? Hamas? All of the above?

The Rapture is a singles event, meaning it can happen at any time according to scripture. I personally believe the Rapture will come during one of the fall feasts. But we don't know when it will come, only the Father knows. I believe the blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are God's signs of war coming to Israel, and the signs of the solar eclipse smack right in the middle of the blood moons mean some sort of catastrophe for the world (perhaps global economic collapse). God never sends judgment without warning.....that is all through the Bible. I believe He is warning the world.

We could see the Psalm 83 war first, that war involves the nations immediately bordering Israel, and she prevails big time in that war. that could expand her borders significantly, make her secure, and then the Ezekiel 38 & 39 war could follow, and that involves nations far outside her borders.

Well, Benjamin Netanyahu is no dummy, and he has said within the last month--

"Netanyahu orders IDF to prepare for possible strike on Iran during 2014"

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/1.580701

With Obama and his flunkies in charge, Israel knows the US doesn't have her back anymore. The may try somwthing this year. Maybe these moons will help them make their decision.

I believe you are correct about the observable pattern.

More specifically, I believe what we will see is the Psalm 83 war fullfilled as prophesied. (neighbor nations will attack and be defeated)

I think we will also see as a result Israel gaining back full control of Jerusalem and the temple mound.

All of this will of course not be liked by the nations, and events will lead to the next war prophesied in Ezekiel 38.

Speaking of Psalm 83:

“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze, so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm. Cover their faces with shame, Lord, so that they will seek your name. May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace.

Why? Jews and Christians belong to Gods family together, as Christians are grafted in by adoption according to the Bible. Jews being his chosen family. Anti-Semitism and Christian persecution go hand in hand, and are not separate issues. God does not have two separate families, only one.

What I’m saying is that these are Jewish Holidays, which Christians, for the most part, don’t celebrate. So this event would pertain to the land of Israel. The Jews. I didn’t mean it would not have ramifications for us.

You don't celebrate Passover do you? Sukkot? No. In fact, Paul taught that we can or choose not to observe them--

"Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day."-Colossians 2:16

So I'm saying there isn't going to be an earth-shattering event in Iowa, or Germany- but in Israel. The majority of the Jewish people, if you haven't noticed, aren't too keen on Jesus, by the way. We are a bit separate at present.

Not sure where all that came from when the comment was “most peculiar” with the follow-up pointing out that Christians believe in the OT.

Exactly. It all seems to come together under that theory. Israel conquers her immediate enemies, and the rebuilds the Temple. Then comes the Gog and Magog war. I am not sure if Putin is the Prince foretold, but if he isn’t, he sure is giving a good audition and dress rehearsal.

The last 3 tetrads have been associated with events that affect the Jews and, most interesting, begin with doom and end with celebration. Look at 1492, the Jews were expelled from Spain, and America (future haven for Jews) was discovered. In 1949 the Jews were reeling from the Holocaust, and the State of Israel was founded. In 1967 it was the Six Day War that ended with the reunification of Jerusalem. It is safe to assume that the same pattern will hold for this tetrad, which means it is NOT the Rapture since it will not affect Israel. My guess would be the Psalm 83 War, beginning as a war of annihilation and ending with the utter defeat of the arab nations immediately surrounding Israel.

Definitely. It is certainly something to consider. We'd be idiots not to. The Bible even teaches that one of the reasons for the moon is exactly for that-- for signs--

"...and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years- Genesis 1:14

Exactly right, I think. The Rapture is a secret event. Brides in Israel are to this day "stolen," which is interesting.

We aren't going to have any advanced notice, it will just take place. But it will certainly be "soon." Of course, each of us sees Jesus upon our own death-- so that train is already coming.

I was thinking more along the lines as the Prince of Meschesh and Tubal, nor the Antichrist. I agree with what you said, he won't come on the scene all at once, and he will arise suddenly from obscurity.

Speaking of the Antichrist, do you guys want to hear my theory? Satan is a full-tilt diva, and if he were to inhabit a body, he would have to be very pretty. That being the case, the Bible speaks of the Antichrist being a "little horn," I horn meaning a King, and a little horn a Prince. So, all we have to do is look up People Magazines 50 hottest princes!!!

Of those, here is my pick: Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark

Jews and Christians do NOT belong to God's family.

1 John 2:22-24 (KJV)

22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24

The anti-Christ Jew does not have the Father. He is not a member of God's family. Jesus came to his own, but they received him not, but as many as received him, to these gave he power to become the sons of God, to them that believe on his name. Which were born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-14

If you don't believe that Jesus is the Christ, then you are not a son of Abraham. That promise was made to Abraham and to his seed and that seed is Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:16). If one is not "in Christ", then he is not a child of promise and joint heir with Christ Jesus.

You do err because you do not know the scriptures.

Do you mean The House of Israel? Those that traveled over the Caucasus Mountains, scattered throughout Europe and Canada and eventually America? (Caucasians)

Weren’t there 12 tribes? 10 were of the House of Israel and two were of The House of Judah?

I’m still learning so please be gentle in your response.
