THE FOUR BLOOD MOONS OF 2014-15
Now when these things begin to happen,
look up and lift up your heads,
because your redemption draws near.
. . . NASA has projected that the [next] Tetrad will begin [in] April 2014 and end in September 2015. [ http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/eclipse.html .] It will occur in the following sequence:
- Passover, April 15, 2014
- Feast of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014
- Passover, April 4, 2015
- Feast of Tabernacles, September 28, 2015
BLOOD MOONS OF 2014-15
. . .
After the appearance of the second Blood Moon and before the third Blood Moon there will be a total solar eclipse on March 20, 2015.
What is the prophetic significance of these Four Blood Moons?
To help answer this very important question, we must review the journey we have taken since the beginning of this book.
It is very rare that Scripture, science, and historical events align with one another, yet the last three Four Blood Moon series or Tetrads have done exactly that. Remember, several Tetrads have occurred in the past five hundred years; only three have corresponded to the Jewish Feasts as well as being linked to historical events significant to Israel. Seven more Tetrads will take place in the twenty-first century, however only one of these seven, the Tetrad of 2014-15, will align itself with the Feasts of the Lord.
What were the common denominators of 1492, 1949, and 1967? They all centered on significant events related to Israel and the Jewish people, and they occurred on the Feasts of the Lord, but what about the future?
. . . we can rightly conclude that the next series of Four Blood Moons of 2014 and 2015 will also hold significance for Israel and the Jewish people.
Each of the three previous series of Four Blood Moons began with a trail of tears and ended with triumph for the Jewish people.
. . .
As mentioned earlier, I believe that the heavens are God’s high-definition billboard. I believe that He has been sending signals and speaking to planet earth in the heavens since creation—we just haven’t considered the meaning of the signals.
It bears repeating the King David acknowledged the heavens were God’s billboard when he wrote:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the worlds.
. . .
Look at the word generation. When God was speaking to Abraham in Genesis 15, He labeled a generation as one hundred years. Some interpret the word generation in this passage as “race,” meaning the Jewish people.
. . .
THE KNOWLEDGE EXPLOSION
. . .
My parents were born at a time when the majority of people still traveled by horse-drawn carriages just as King David. In fact, not much had changed in the way of technology since the time of my great-grandparents. There were no telephones, no television, no faxes, no Xerox machines, and no computers! People communicated in person by letter, and only when someone died would you receive a telegram.
However, times have changed! Within the last few decades technology has exploded to the point that one can use a mobile phone to speak to anyone in the world and send messages via email, text, Twitter, and Facebook. We log on to the information highway by means of the Internet allowing access to any search engine available. You can watch your favorite television programs and movies through devices that can fit in your coat pocket. We share pictures, videos, and news instantly! Daily, this technology exponentially increases—just think of the number of times that you purchased the latest gizmo and it became obsolete before you walked out of the store!
There is no doubt that we are the generation that has experienced the knowledge explosion, but does more knowledge produce wisdom?
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
THE BIRTH OF NUCLEAR WARFARE
. . .
The world still remembers the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which were the only events in history where nuclear bombs were used in warfare. In the book of Revelation, John tells that four angels are going to be released to destroy one-third of the earth’s population in one day. Before hydrogen bombs this was not possible! Now the world has enough nuclear power owned by the nations of the world to kill everyone on planet earth twenty times over.
Iran, with its radical religious leadership, has promised to share nuclear weapons with terrorist organizations around the globe. If and when Iran becomes nuclear, it will threaten and destabilize Western civilization. Iran’s radical theology worships death, and a nuclear bomb will serve their theological concepts perfectly. . . .
THE COMING SHEMITTAH YEAR
. . . A Shemittah year occurs every seven years; it’s known as a time of rest of the land much like the Sabbath, which occurs every seven days, is a time of rest for man. While observing Shemittah guarantees abundance, neglecting it leads to judgment.
Every seven years we experience a Shemittah year in which God allows something to happen that gets our undivided attention whether we are ready or not! Just look at what happened in the last several Shemittah years:
* The Shemittah year of 1973: The Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade occurred, . . .
* The Shemittah year of 1980: Saddam Hussein invaded Iran to signal the beginning of the Gulf War years.
* The Shemittah year of 1987: A supernova that could be seen by the naked eye for the first time since 1604 occurred. . . . That same year the U.S. stock market crashed.
* The Shemittah year of 1994: Yasser Arafat returns to the Middle East. A rare earthquake occurred in North America on the New Madrid fault line; it spanned the Midwest of the United States up to Canada.
* The Shemittah year of 2001: America was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists killing nearly three thousand Americans on 9/11. This day became America’s new day of infamy.
* The Shemittah year of 2008: America experienced a stock market crash on September 29 when the market fell 777 points in one day. It was the greatest one-day decline in the history of Wall Street.
Add seven years to 2008, and you have the year 2015, in which you also find the last two Four Blood Moons of 2014-15. . . .
We know that only three Tetrads have occurred in the last 500 years that are significant to Israel and also fall on the Jewish Feasts. We also know that these are the only Tetrads that have had a total solar eclipse somewhere within the series. The coming Tetrad in 2014-15 will also contain a total solar eclipse within its series. But what is different between the previous three Tetrads significant to Israel and the coming Tetrad?
Unlike the others, this series of Four Blood Moons contains a Shemittah year beginning September 25, 2014, and concluding on September 13, 2015. Astoundingly, this Shemittah year will begin on the first day of the Jewish New Year (Feast of Trumpets) of 2014 and conclude on the following celebration of the Jewish New Year (Feast of Trumpets) in 2015. Follow this phenomenon:
* The occurrence of a lunar eclipse is common.
* The occurrence of a total lunar eclipse is less common.
* The occurrence of a Tetrad or four consecutive Blood Moons (total lunar eclipses) is rare.
* The occurrence of a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse within its series is very rare.
* A Tetrad with a total solar eclipse that is significant to Israel’s history and the Jewish Feasts is very, very rare.
* The occurrence of a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse historically significant to Israel and Jewish Feasts that includes a Shemittah year within its series is very, very, very rare.
* But a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse, historically significant to Israel and falling on the Jewish Feast with a Shemittah year that corresponds with the Feast of Trumpets (the Jewish New Year) within its series is astronomically rare.

A TARGET FOR TERRORISTS
. . .
The coming Four Blood Moons are aligning themselves, the next Shemittah year is nearing, the sages of old have foretold of events past and those to come, the enemies of Israel are surrounding the Land of Covenant once again, the signs of the terminal generation are complete. . . .
ARE YOU READY?
The fourth series of Four Blood Moons is coming! They are extremely rare even by scientific standards. God is shouting to us, “Something big is about to happen!” . . .
What they are telling us is that God is getting ready to change the course of human history once again [akin to the secular monolith in Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey? –SB]. He is preparing to display the next series of signs in the heavens. What is going to happen?
. . .
Watch and pray! Be prepared, . . . The Church is soon to leave the world. We are seeing signs of the end of this age.
. . .
There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the
stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with per-
plexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts fail-
ing them from fear and the expectation of those things
which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the
heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of
Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Now when these things begin to happen, look up and
lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.
