My first-born son is fine after midnight last night, thanks for asking. But I did go check on him.
I want to re-blog this article, The Coming Blood Moons, which has lots of good information about the significance of having four blood moons in a row, without partial eclipses in between, occurring exactly six lunar cycles apart.
Notice out of all the tetrads listed, which ones occurred on Passover and Tabernacles specifically.
- Four PARTIAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover in 32 AD – 33 AD and the “Feast of Tabernacles” in the years before and after the Crucifixion. The world has since witnessed only seven “Tetrads” coinciding with events impacting Jewish and Christian culture.
- 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 expelled all Jewish people from the country.
- Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Feast of Tabernacle in 1949 – 1950 during the 1st Arab – Israeli War for Independence just after Israel had become a nation again for the first time in 2,000 years. It should be noted here: that even though Israel declared themselves a nation in 1948, the first permanent government took office on January 25th, 1949.
- Four TOTAL lunar eclipses occurred on the Jewish Passover and Feast of Tabernacle in 1967 – 1968 coinciding with the 6 Day War when Israel recaptured Jerusalem.
The sabbatical year in the seven-year cycle begins on Rosh Hashanah on September 25, 2014, and ends on Rosh Hashanah on September 13 – 14, 2015 — the day of a partial solar eclipse. This 2000-year history of blood-red moons’ connection to Passover and Tabernacles is certainly noteworthy. This tetrad we’re in now is the only one this century that coincide with Passover in the spring and the Feast of Tabernacles in the fall.
The Autumnal Equinox is on September 22nd this year, the day before the new moon on Sept. 23rd (no solar eclipse though). Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, is two days after that on Sept. 25th. The moon waxes to first quarter on October 1st, and the full blood moon falls on October 8th.
