According to pastor John Hagee a “world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015” because of the “four blood moons,” - four consecutive and complete lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad, which begins April 15. The San Antonio pastor asserts the dates of the eclipses signify a major event that will change history.
But what are the Blood Moons? According to EarthSky.org, the blood moon is a total lunar eclipse that has a red hue because it is reflecting Earth. This year, the first Blood Moon eclipse in a series of four is coming up on the night of April 14-15, 2014. This total eclipse of the moon will be visible from the Americas.
What is a tetrad? It’s four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons)
Does it really portend great Biblical prophesy? According to the Bible, the moon is supposed to turn blood red before the end times as described in Joel 2:31 (Common English Bible): The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.
Dates of Biblical prophecy Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015. These are the dates for the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses – in these years.
Total lunar eclipse: April 14-15
Total lunar eclipse: October 8
Total lunar eclipse: April 4
Total lunar eclipse: September 28
There are a total of 8 tetrads in the 21st century (2001 to 2100). But proponents of this Biblical prophecy regard the upcoming tetrad as especially significant because it coincides with two important Jewish holidays: Passover and Tabernacles. The April 2014 and April 2015 total lunar eclipses align with the feast of Passover. The October 2014 and September 2015 total lunar eclipses align with the feast of Tabernacles.
The Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar. In any year, it’s inevitable that a full moon should fall on or near the feasts of Passover (15 Nissan) and Tabernacles (15 Tishri). Nissan and Tishri are the first and seventh months of the Jewish calendar, respectively.
Eclipses in general are a time of stress and emotional thinking and therefore should be a time of caution when making decisions. Try not to sign any important documents during an eclipse such as a lease. There will be something that will prove to be disappointing about it or it will not work out at all. The secret is, of course, that the best action is little to no action. The eclipse brings on an exceptionally emotional time which begins ten days before and lasts for three days after the actual eclipse. The pressure may be on in business, love and money, but wait three days after the eclipse until the shadow of the eclipse is over before you act or decide on a course of action.
As far as Prophesy, I suppose it all depends on what the world leaders do during the eclipse.....
