Prophecy surrounds 'blood moon' events

This week's lunar eclipse has been seen as a sign that an ancient prophecy will soon be fulfilled.
A 'blood moon' occurs during a lunar eclipse, an event that takes place when the Moon passes behind the Earth and in to its shadow ( or umbra ).

This week saw the first of four such events set to take place over the next two years and all of them happen to fall upon the dates of Jewish holidays. The eclipse on April 15th will be followed this year by another on October 8th and then two more next year on April 4th and September 28th.

This procession of dates coupled with the unusual frequency with which they are occurring has lead some to read the eclipses as a sign that something significant will soon take place.

"There's a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way," said evangelical pastor John Hagee who believes that the pattern of eclipses could precede significant events in the Middle-East.

"Every time this has happened in the last 500 years, it has coincided with tragedy for the Jewish people followed by triumph. And once again, for Israel, the timing of this Tetrad (four blood moons) is remarkable," he said.

"Every time this has happened in the last 500 years, it has coincided with tragedy for the Jewish people followed by triumph. And once again, for Israel, the timing of this Tetrad (four blood moons) is remarkable," he said. But how many tragedies and triumphs have the Jewish people had without their being blood moons? Just another case of people seeing what they want to see imo.

This seems to consider it in quite a reasonable fashion. As it says, contrary to what Biltz and Hagee imply, past blood moon tetrads did not neatly coincide with the events they mention. For example, the Alhambra Decree came down in 1492 but the blood moons happened a year after that. The tetrad near the state of Israel's 1948 independence occurred in 1949-1950, one and two years after the event. Third, other tetrads happened throughout history, but there were no major events affecting Jews at those times, reflecting inconsistency, at the least. Fourth, two of the most significant catastrophes... [More]

All an eclipse is, is one object in space getting in a position so as to cast its shadow on us, or to get into our shadow. It gets colorful because of atmospheric conditions that are readily understood. The real mystery to me is why the full moon looks so much bigger when it is near the horizon than when it is higher in the sky. It is interesting that a few of those who still hold the old superstitious religious notions also credit magical or prophetic links to these and other events, even though it is obvious enough there is not any physical connection. If God wants to tell us what is going t... [More]

I'm truly shocked to learn that there are still people who think that eclipses are anything other than the sun, moon, and Earth aligning in uncommon ways. They're not mystical, they don't predict anything. We can calculate every eclipse from now until the end of time, because it is so formulaic.

The point about the Tetrads is that significant world events have occurred. As has been pointed out over and over which apparently, those posting here aren't interested in learning. Here is a 6+ minute video. (If you can spare the time). Excuse me, but, the prior event in 2008 saw the stock market crash which set things off, and effected financial markets globally.. Just before that though there was a sudden spike in Oil prices, and my place of employment folded because of both situations occuring. Oh, that was, "wonderful". Check out this page which, seems, was published just prior to the fin... [More]

I watched the eclipse last night. Here in Vietnam it fizzed. No red moon (happens only at totality) -- just the moon shrinking down to a crescent. We must have been just outside the totality zone. I guess that's good in that no one here was exposed to whatever horrible things a red moon causes. Sheesh.

There was a layer of grey clouds hiding my view of the moon last night…The only show that I had on the 4th of April was from a snake (10 hours prior to the blood moon) which regurgitated its dinner near my back door…Poor little froggy all slimy and limp, from a snakes belly he did slink.
