Acts 2:20 (KJV): The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come.
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in Puyallup, Washington click here has been sharing with us some remarkable discoveries on the blood-red moon and Jewish feast connections in the past three months. He now has some new discoveries.
I have known Mark for four years and have spoken at his church twice in the Tacoma, Washington, area. He has been an avid student and teacher of the Jewish Feasts and their awe-inspiring connections to the Lord's earthly events.
Mark said he had found my blood-red moon work interesting and began looking into possible connection to past and future Jewish Feasts at which time he found very significant connections.
I have provided blood-red moon information, and information on the coming total solar eclipses of 2008, 2009 and 2010which all fall on the 1st of Av.
Seven back-to-back, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover and Sukkot, with the eighth time coming in 2014 and 2015
Mark found that we have had blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the final year of 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.
So what does the period of time from 2013 to 2015 portend for Israel and the world?

Which is the standard Historicist take on the seals. Preterists, Historicists, and Futurists such as myself, interpret the Revelation data, and the seals, very differently.
When you say ... “Per this post, you believe in the pretrib rapture” ... the answer is yes, as I put down on my information page here — but that is not “per this post”. In other words, this post has nothing to do with the Pre-tribulational Rapture, that the Bible teaches.
In fact this post doesn’t directly have to do with anything the Bible says.
You may be confusing this as a prophecy in the Bible. Let me put it another way, which may make it clearer - you could say that the Bible never existed and that there are no prophecies at all and we would STILL be looking at this.
This has nothing to do with the Bible or prophecies - in and of itself. This is seeing a PATTERN (keeping in mind we would be looking at the same pattern, even if the Bible didnt exist).
Heres the pattern from the past ...
The Blood Red Moons Of 2014 And 2015: An Omen Of War For Israel?
Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Feast of Tabernacles in 162 163 AD, coinciding with the worst persecution of Jews and Christians in the history of the Roman Empire. Within 3 years the Antonine Plague killed eight million people, a third of the population.
Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Yom Kippur Holidays in 795 796 AD while King Charlemagne of the Holy Roman Empire established a DMZ buffer zone between France and Spain, ending centuries of Arab invasions into Western Europe.
Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Yom Kippur Holidays in 842 843 AD. Shortly after the eclipses the Vatican church in Rome was attacked and looted by an Islamic invasion from Africa.
Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Yom Kippur Holidays in 860 861 AD. Shortly after the eclipses the Byzantine Empire defeated Arab armies at the Battle of Lalakaon in Turkey and permanently stopped the Islamic invasion of Eastern Europe.
Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and the Feast of Trumpets Holidays in 1493 1494. Only months after King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain ordered all Jewish people to leave the country (after about 200 AD, Spain became and remained a second Jewish homeland for well over a millennia. So deeply woven into the fabric of Spain are the Jews that neither history can be fully studied without considering the influence of the other).
And to these listed above, are two more - the establishing of the State of Israel, and Israel gaining full sovereignty over Jerusalem.
Also, for those who don’t know, a Tetrad is defined as the following ...
Tetrad four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons).
It is my understanding that Mark Blitz and John Hagee use the prophecy in Joel and Peter's reiteration of it in Acts 2 in their promoting of the tetrad blood red moons. The sun darkened the moon turned into blood in relation to the day of the Lord. Highly prophetic stuff I would say, yet you say it is not related to the second coming?
I was referring to post 23...you didn’t say whether or not Mark Blitz is pretrb like yourself.
That would be like saying that all those other tetrads (according to the list I supplied in my last post) are related to the second coming. As you can clearly see (from the past) they are not.
These are astronomical events, of which we’ve picked up a pattern from the past. From the past pattern, we would say that something very significant and historical will happen to the Jews and the homeland of the Jews, Israel.
The second coming is going to consist of a lot of miraculous events, outside of the standard astronomical laws (under which tetrads operate) and thus the second coming needs no astronomical or human intervention to happen.
I have no idea, as I’ve never been to his church in the Sea-Tac area. I’ve never listened to any sermons, so I couldn’t venture a guess that way either. If you would like to know, I’m sure you could write to him and find out.

I agree that something very significant is shaping up in the middle east, which could very possibly take place in 2014 or 2015, but to tie blood red moons with it, which, per Joel and Acts 2, may not have anything to do with eclipses, I have a problem with that.
I see Joel and Acts 2 referring to the day of the Lord closing out the tribulation while ushering in the millennial, something much more apocalyptic than a mere eclipse, or even four of them in a row.
Well ... I’m not tying it into that (the second coming). Maybe others are, but I’m not. And, as you can see that I’ve posted elsewhere, I did say that if I were betting on what it might portend, I would say a major war in the Middle East, with Israel involved and one in which the Palestinians will come out on the worst end of the stick, on this one.
“Portend” - good descriptor for what we are talking about, no doubt these blood red moons do portend something very significant. But does blood red moons occurring on Jewish feast days portend something good for Israel?
As Israel’s calendar is lunar based, the moon gets charged with an awful lot of meaning. I think you and I would agree on that. If the mood is symbolic of Israel, and it turns redish on these important feasts, it would seem not to portend something good, rather something bad to happen to Israel. Something doesn’t compute in all this blood red moon business. Just musing.
What is important for 1492 is that not only did Columbus sail, but Ferdinand and Isabel expelled all the Jew and Moors OUT of Spain. Those that remained were tried by the Inquisition, which started a couple of decades before.
Oh and one final thing:
I’m not sure of you’re just talking about one so-called Blood Moon, or the “tetrad”. If you’re just talking about one blood moon, then that may be a different matter than the tetrad.
I followed your link to Mark Blitz’s website. I could find no statement as to whether he is pretrib or not. Lots of sermons on his site where one might hear him define his belief on it, but it would be too tedious to listen to them.
There is nothing in Revelation to interpret.
John was commissioned to write what was, what ‘is’ , and what is to come, and leave nothing out.
The seals are what is in the gap between John and us .
No prophecy can remain forever ‘future.’
Mark is definitely “post trib.”
John Hagee has just published a book using the “blood moons” as a scare tactic to get richer.
Hagee is liable to say almost anything, as he is a total fruitcake.
Which Arab countries don’t border Israel?
Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi, and Egypt do.
With such tremendously apocalyptic events described in Revelation as:
astronomic judgments falling upon one third of the earth in trumpets one through four,
great earthquakes the like of which none on earth have ever seen (which would trigger major volcanic activity),
I rather doubt the sun darkened and moon turned to blood in Joel and Acts 2 is referring to mere eclipses.
Viewing the sun and moon on earth at the end of the great tribulation, through great volcanic clouds, the sun and moon would indeed look as so described in Joel and Acts 2.
But if we divorce these tetrad blood moons eclipse events from the Joel and Acts 2 "sun darkened moon turned to blood" day of the Lord prophecy, which is NOT a mere eclipse event, then, yes, I think they could very well be portents of something to happen in the near future.
The problem is, Blitz and Hagee do NOT divorce these passages of scripture, which can hardly be mere eclipses, from their tetrad blood moons theory. See my point? Like I said, something doesn't compute here.
