4 Blood Moon Tetrad Frenzy
The 6th seal of Revelation describes a unique event that needs
The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. (Joel 2:10, ESV)
The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. (Joel 2:31, ESV)
When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. (Rev 6:12)
There is a big frenzy on the internet because there will be 2 red moons in 2014 and 2 red moons in 2015 that fall on Jewish feast Days.
While this is interesting, people fail to realize that blood moons are not unusual, and that having a blood moon may mean nothing at all.
Having them fall on a Jewish feast day is interesting, and may be seen as “bad luck,” but it is NOT a promise that something revolutionary, like the wrath of God, or that the 6th seal is about to
People forget that not only will the sun and moon
turn dark at the same time, but the stars will also
fall from the sky!!!!!.
Getting fixated on just some lunar eclipses is a waste of time, although I do think 2014 and 2015 will see troubles.
People are selling books now with this distorted prediction that the rapture will happen, all based on what the moon is doing, and they are ignoring that the fact that there is no predicted solar eclipse, or meteor shower, expected at the same time.
This diagram is misleading.
Solar eclipse 3/20/15 will be seen in western hemisphere only, and will not be seen in Israel.
Lunar eclipse is not due until April 4 , 2015, two weeks later, and it won’t be visible in Jerusalem either.
Understanding Eclipse Geometry
There is no natural way a solar and lunar eclipse can happen at the same time.
The sun and the moon are on the same side of the earth for a solar eclipse, and on opposite sides of the earth for a lunar eclipse.
So the sun and moon need time to each get into position for their own eclipse.
This is why they need to be at least 2 weeks apart.
It takes time to travel into position.
How does the 6th seal event predicted in Joel and Revelation occur
My view is that this is NOT an event due to consecutive solar or lunar eclipses, because the sun and moon turn dark at the same time, and the stars also seem to be falling from the sky.
1.. If there IS a lunar eclipse occurring, something ELSE has to be blocking the sun!
Maybe another planetary object……
God just puts his hand over the sun to block it.
2.. if there is a solar eclipse occurring, then something else is turning the moon red.
Maybe something in the atmosphere
God just turns it red for His own reasons.
Since the stars also seem to be falling as well, this suggests a large meteor shower of some sort.
If we put all 3 events together, it would seem that
an unusual heavenly event is occurring, which
affect the sun, moon and stars, ALL at the SAME
