"The prophets Joel and Isaiah along with the disciples Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all foresaw the sun being darkened and the moon being turned into blood.
The moon turns into blood as it passes through the shadow of the earth. Light is fractured through the atmosphere of the earth and the moon appears to be blood red. It is quite a common occurrence. What is uncommon is four consecutive blood moon or something astronomers call a tetrad.
Pastor Mark Biltz discovered that there is still an even more rare event where these tetrads of eclipses fall on biblical feast days of Passover and Tabernacles. Since the time Jesus walked on the earth there have been 7 tetrads that have occurred on the biblical feasts of Passover and Tabernacles two years in a row.
The sixth and seventh of these tetrads occured in the last century. The sixth one was following the establishment of Israel as a nation when a tetrad of blood moons occured (Apr 13, 1949, Oct 7, 1949, Apr 2, 1950, Sept 26, 1950). The seventh tetrad occurred in conjunction with Jerusalem being returned to the hands of the Jews following the six day war of June 1967 (Apr 24, 1967, Oct 18, 1967, Apr 13, 1968, Oct 6, 1968).
Prior to the 1900's no tetrad of eclipses had occured on the biblical feast days in either the 1800's, the 1700's, the 1600's, or the 1500's. You have to go all the way back to 1493 and 1494 the year following the Spainish expultion of the Jews in 1492. This is also the year a Jew named Christopher Columbus discovered America.
So is there another tetrad of blood moons on the horizon that falls on the biblical feast days of Passover and Tabernacle? Just one in the next 500 years! In 2014 and 2015 a tetrad of blood moons will fall on the biblical feasts of Passover and Tabernacles. Then not again until the year 2629 and 2630. What event is on our horizon? Could tribulation be on our horizon, followed by great tribulation?
Jesus pointed to the midpoint of the tribulation as the time when 'antichrist' sets up what Daniel called the "Abomination of Desolation". Jesus tells those in Israel who see this to head for the hills and not to turn back, saying, "Then there shall be 'great tribulation', such as was not since the beginning of the world" (Matthew 24:21). Daniel described the Abomination of Desolation taking place in the middle of the week (or the middle of the seven years). And Jesus refers to the second half of the tribulation after the Abomination of Desolation as 'great tribulation'.
Later in the text Jesus goes back and refers to the first half of the seven years as 'tribulation' while clearly calling the second half of the seven years as 'great tribulation'. This is clearly what He is referencing when He says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days then the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light" (Matthew 24:29).
Could this next tetrad of eclipses on Passover and Tabernacles be pointing to the midpoint of the tribulation? Are we on the at the door of the beginning of Daniel's 70th week where the world will see three and a half years of 'tribulation', then the sun will be darkened and the moon turned to blood, then there shall be 'great tribulation' such as the world has not seen?"http://isaiah612.blogspot.com/2009_08_01_archive.html
