Acts 2:20 reads, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.”
Interestingly enough, on March 20, 2015, a solar eclipse occurred where the sun “turned into darkness.”
On April 4, 2015, at approximately 4:58 a.m. Pacific Time, the moon will turn “into blood.” Each day that this Tetrad is set to occur, falls the dates of major Jewish feasts:
April 15, 2014—Passover October 8, 2014—Feast of Tabernacles
- April 4, 2015—Passover
- September 28, 2015—Feast of Tabernacles
This total lunar eclipse is also being recognized as the shortest of the century lasting only a few minutes.
1 Corinthians 15:52-53 states, “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
Another interesting sign, is that this occurrence is happening the first night of the Passover.
This phenomenon of four consecutive blood moons that have occurred during Jewish feast days has only taken place ten times since 1 AD and only three times since 1492 AD. The three times since 1492 are as follows:
- Tetrad of 1493-1494
- Tetrad of 1949-1950
- Tetrad of 1967-1968
Major events affecting the Jewish people have happened in close proximity to all three of these tetrads.
The Spanish Inquisition – 1492: One Year Before the Tetrad of 1493-1494
In 1492, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain gave members of the Jewish faith four months to convert to Catholicism or they would have to leave their country. Approximately 165,000 and 400,000 Jews fled the Spain. Around 50,000 stayed, converting to Roman Catholicism.
Israel Reborn on May 14, 1948: One Year Before the Tetrad of 1949-1950
After the holocaust of World War II, the Jews were granted a homeland by the nations of the world. On May 14, 1948, the state of Israel was formed.
The City of Jerusalem was Reunited: During the Tetrad of 1967-1968
On June 7, 1967 the Jordanians launched attacked Israel and west Jerusalem. Israel counter-attacked moving back to it’s own land across the Jordan River. Jerusalem was undivided and under Jewish control for the first time since the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD.
Could a major event happen to Israel? Based upon previous history and the recent U.S. Nuclear Agreement with Iran, the possibility is likely.
Will the Lord come tonight? Only God knows. Matthew 24:36 reads, “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” However, this is a clear sign that Jesus is coming soon and that we must always be ready.
