“I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Acts 2:19-21
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)
“A BLOOD MOON occurs during a lunar eclipse. The moon is sometimes called a “blood moon” since the moon often takes on a bloody color. NASA’s eclipse website provides precision tracking of the celestial events.A search of that website will reveal a rare phenomenon of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad.
During this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what’s interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God’s holy days of Passover in the spring (April) and the autumn’s Feast of Tabernacles (also called Succoth) occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today’s Gregorian calendar.
The fact that it doesn’t happen again in this century is significant because the last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem being recaptured by Israel.
It is a fact that humanity has experienced blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot (Feast of Booths or Tabernacles) on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D.
Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the final year of the Spanish Inquisition)(Columbus sailed the ocean blue), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence), and 1967 (the Six-Day War) — some of the most significant days in Jewish history.
The others were in 162/163 A.D., 795/796 A.D., 842/843 A.D. and 860/861 A.D. In all eight examples, the eclipses have fallen or will fall on the first day of Passover and Sukkot.” (Source: http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2013/08/blood-moons-coming-will-jesus-return-soon-2749822.html)
Whereas no one knows the day or the hour in which the Lord will come, we need to be vigilant and prepared for His coming. Many parables that Jesus spoke of in the Bible talk about people not “watching” for His coming. Jesus will reveal signals using the very nature He created. While it is important to be out living for the Lord, we do not want to get too caught up in earthly activities that we neglect to prepare for the greatest celebration of all time. It will be greater than Mardi Gras, greater than the Super Bowl. No social media monitoring can possibly capture the splendor of this amazing fusion of death being overtaken with life.. Jesus using a mighty sword taking a blow to the dark web, the evil and corruption of this planet, and the dark forces that surround it. Evil will finally be conquered and Christ will take his throne. Those who have prepared for this event and accepted the Lord as their Savior will be the VIP’s with special invites. There will be no #PartyCrashers. The #BlackListed will be worst off than the characters of #TheWalkingDead. Don’t delay. Don’t put off God. He is not an exercise regime that you just don’t feel like doing. Jesus needs to be our only motivation. We need to advance His gospel in all that we do.
Some will use the Blood Moons to try to scare everyone into full “Doomsday Prepping” mode loading up on guns, ammo, and gas masks. Instead, use this opportunity to pray for courage to tell all those you know how much God loves them. He did not create us to hurt, but to heal. He came to break our shackles of loneliness, depression, pornography, hate, unforgiveness, shame, and anger. He came to set us free. He paid for all of our sins. He walks into all of our dark rooms and turns on the light. He sees our shame and when we fall to our knees, He cleans the rooms Himself. He set you free. We are not bound by evil. Let these Blood Moons be a keen reminder to us that God has everything under control. We do not need to predict, or propose. We only need to prepare for His coming and pray for His will. If none has told you today, Jesus loves you so much!!! The question is.. Will U Be Ready??
