Shalom Partner and Friend of
We found the "blood-red moon" work interesting and began looking into possible connections to past and future "Jewish Feasts"… and to our amazement found there are very significant connections and trust that you will find this teaching fascinating too!
"And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah." Joel -31
"The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord." Acts
The Jewish Talmud (book of tradition / Interpretation) says; "When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for
Four, blood moons on Jewish Feast days within two years in
Every time a blood moon pattern has appeared on Jewish feast days a big event affects the nation of
It was confirmed by NASA that we have had "blood-red moons" on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkoth on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D. Three of these occurrences were connected to 1492 (the year the Jews were expelled from Spain by Queen Isabella) , 1948 (statehood for
Seven back-to-back, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover and Sukkoth, with the "eighth time"… coming in 2014 and 2015.
The meaning of the number "Eight"in the Bible is "New Beginnings"… The eighth day was new after God rested. There are 7 days in a week and the 8th day is a new beginning. Christ rose on the 8th day which was a new beginning for the world.
In Hebrew, the days of the week are simply numbered, except for the 7th, which is the Sabbath (Shabbat). With the exception of the Shabbat, the weekdays have no names. They are simply numbered:
yom rishon = "first day" = (Sunday)
yom sheni = "second day" = (Monday)
yom sh'lishi = "third day" = (Tuesday)
yom revi'i = "fourth day" = (Wednesday)
yom chamishi = "fifth day" = (Thursday)
yom shishi = "sixth day" = (Friday)
Yom Shabbat = "Seventh day" = (Saturday)
The week culminates in the seventh day, the Holy Shabbat (shabbat kodesh, abbreviated.) However the days are always based upon the Bible (evening then morning) Genesis 1:5.
The Week that changed the world...
Mark 15:42-44: "Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the Kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marvelled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time." This means it was Preparation day was Thursday (beginning Wednesday evening) and Friday (beginning Thursday evening) is the day before Sabbath which begins at sundown on Friday night until Saturday(Sabbath) evening.
Many believe that (Yeshua) Jesus was crucified on the Passover, Friday, then buried later that (Friday) afternoon or evening before the Sabbath (Saturday) began, and then rose from the dead the first day of the week (Sunday). How could there be a fulfilment of Jesus' prediction that He would be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth? What exactly does this mean? Three literal 24- hour day or a statement related to a certain time period?
How can we fit three days and three nights between a Friday afternoon crucifixion and an Easter Sunday sunrise? The fact is… we can't! So how can we determine the truth about when Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified and resurrected? How long was Christ in the tomb? The fact is… we can't! How long was Yeshua (Jesus Christ) in the tomb? When we compare this to what Yeshua (Jesus) Himself said about how long He would be entombed... we find a major contradiction. How long did Yeshua (Jesus) say He would be in the grave? "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth," Matthew 12:40. It had to be three nights and three days... because the Lord said so. Please see the picture diagram further below.
Matthew 28:1-2; "Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it." The first day of the week is Sunday according to the Bible ...and according to the New Testament - since Saturday (Sabbath day) is the 7th day.
We read in John 19 31; "Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies (of those crucified) should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken (to hasten death before the Sabbath), and that they might be taken away." In the Jewish culture of that time, the chores of cooking and housecleaning were done on the day before a Sabbath to avoid working on God's designated day of rest. Thus the day before the Sabbath was commonly called "the preparation day." Clearly the day on which Christ was crucified and His body placed in the tomb was the day immediately preceding a Sabbath. The question is, which Sabbath? Most people assume John is speaking of the regular weekly Sabbath day, observed from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. From John's clear statement here, most people assume Jesus died and was buried on a Friday... thus the traditional belief that Jesus was crucified and died on "Good Friday." Most people have no idea that the Bible talks about two kinds of Sabbath days… (1) the normal weekly Sabbath day that falls on the seventh day of the week (not to be confused with Sunday - which is the first day of the week), (2) and seven annual Sabbath days, listed in Leviticus 23 and mentioned in various passages throughout the Bible that could fall on any day of the week. Thus here we have... The Passover Sabbath and then the normal Shabbat or Sabbath day!
Yeshua rose on the first day of a new week which is the eighth day (if Saturday is the seventh day then Sunday must be the eighth day). In other words, we do believe that (Yeshua) Jesus rose on the third day... the third day after he was in the grave three days and three nights ...and the third day was when He rose from the dead. It wasn’t eight days... but from another standpoint, even a biblical stand point; He was the FIRSTFRUITS, firstborn of a new creation... figuratively the eighth day but literally the first... that’s referred to in the Bible as a "new beginning."
Other examples of significance of eight... When the whole earth was covered with the flood, it was Noah "the eighth person" (2 Peter 2:5) who stepped out on to a new earth to commence a new order of things. "Eight souls" (1 Peter ) passed through to the new or re-generated world. Hence, too, circumcision was to be performed on the "eighth day" (Genesis ), because it was the fore-shadowing of the true circumcision of the heart, that which was to be "made without hands," even "the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ" (Colossians ). This is connected with the new creation. The first-born was to be given to Jehovah on the "eighth day" (Exodus , 30)… and the Resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus) is ultimately signified when He rose from the dead on "the first day of the week," (Mark 16:9) that was of necessity the "eighth day."
The "Passover" week that changed the world…
Understanding Blood Moon Tetrads...
Tetrad: When four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total eclipses, the group is known as a tetrad.
The Saros Cycle: is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 65851/3 days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon. One cycle after an eclipse… the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur west of the original location.
Tishri: Is the seventh month of the religious year for
Rosh Hashanah: This is a two day feast occurring on Tishri 1 and Tishri 2 of the Hebrew calendar. This is also called the feast of trumpets. A lot of people believe this feast day is tied to the rapture of the Christian Church prior to the start of the tribulation.
Yom Kippur: This is known as the Day of Atonement. It is considered to be one of the most important of Jewish Holidays of the year. It is a day set aside to atone for the sins of the past year. It occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. It is found in Leviticus 23:26-32.
Sukkoth (Tabernacles): The feast of Sukkoth begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day of Yom Kippur. It is a joyous feast day while Yom Kippur is one of the most solemn of feast days. Sukkoth is a feast day with a festival atmosphere. It marks a season of rejoicing. Sukkoth means booths and refers to temporary dwelling places the Jews gather into during this holiday. Most Christian Scholars believe the "Feast of Sukkoth" is the feast for the 2nd Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ when he returns with his saints on white horses at Armageddon.
AV: Av is the fifth month of the Hebrew Calendar. It is a time of mourning for the Jews. There are two festivals that are in Av; on the 9th and on the 15th. On the 9th of Av is Tisha B' Av which is a sad day when Jews fast. It recalls the two temples being destroyed and commemorates other tragic events throughout Jewish History. The other festival which happens in Av… is Tu B' Av. This is a happy occasion in which couples traditionally get together to arrange their wedding.
Nissan: The first month of the Jewish Religious Year - this occurs in the spring time. Passover Occurs on the 15th day of this month.
Passover: The Hebrew feast day commemorating the Lamb Sacrifice in Exodus where the Angel of Death passed over
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 of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ). The world has since witnessed seven "Tetrads" coinciding with events impacting Jewish and Christian culture.
Seven Jewish Total Lunar Eclipses have occurred in the 1st & 2nd Millenniums:

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 ordered all Jewish people to leave the country (after about 200 AD, Spain became and remained a second Jewish homeland for well over a millennia. So deeply woven into the fabric of

The coming Blood Moons of 2014 – 2015… These four TOTAL lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses WILL occur on the Jewish holidays of "Passover," the "Feast of Tabernacles" and the "Feast of Trumpets."
This is the only "tetrad" in the near future that aligns itself with the Jewish holidays. One should make mention here that there are other "tetrads" occurring as well. One tetrad occurred in 2003 - 2004. Future ones other than the 2014 - 2015 are found in 2032-2033, 2043-2044, 2050-2051, 2061-2062, 2072-2073, and 2090-2091… The difference between these "tetrads" and the 2014 - 2015 "tetrad" is that this "tetrad" aligns with the Jewish holidays and the others DO NOT!
Putting everything into perspective… The above does not mean that the Second Coming of Yeshua (Jesus Christ) at Tabernacles… has to occur on Tabernacles 2015. But, what the above taken as a whole does show a pattern. The "1493 tetrad"… is tied to the Spanish Government expelling the Jews. The "1949 tetrad" is the nation

The eclipses of the sun and moon confront us with precise dates which cannot be manipulated…! Nevertheless, these signs should not be seen as an attempt to date-setting for the Second Coming of Christ but rather as a wake-up call to be ready for what may happen in the near future. Now is not the time to lapse into spiritual slumber like the Matthew 25 foolish virgins.
Repeated calls by radical Muslims for a world-wide jihad are now heard everywhere - from
NOTE: There is a huge difference between astrology and astronomy. Astronomy is a natural science that deals with the study of celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies) and observing the cycles in the heavens. Astrology is witchcraft, where they believe the order of the stars leads them to a successful life or warns them of things coming. In biblical times, watchmen were posted on the walls surrounding the city. They not only watched for an enemy approaching, they also recorded anything happening in the night sky. From historical events on earth during the same time that unusual heavenly events were recorded, they observed a relationship pattern of occurrences relating to heaven and earth. (
The Jews require a sign… If it does line up with
God created the heavens and the earth and the sun, moon and stars are totally controlled by his power. The story of Joshua, Hezekiah and the wise men following the star to the location where Yeshua (Jesus) was… is Bible validation of God's absolute control of the universe. Genesis states that God has put lights in the firmament and let them be for "signs." The Hebrew word for "sign" is "owth" which means also "a signal."
Other interesting facts:
1. Passover is the first annual feast.
2. Sukkoth is the seventh and final annual feast.
3. AV is a month of mourning for the Jews.
4. The 17th of Tammuz to the 9th of Av is a 21-day period of mourning for the Jewish people.
5. The next seven year cycle began on Rosh Hashanah on
6. The sabbatical year in the seven-year cycle begins on Rosh Hashanah on
7. There were no astronomical back-to-back blood-red moon events in the 1800s, the 1700s or the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six… but none of those fell on Passover and Sukkoth. The 2014 / 2015 "tetrad" events will be the last of the century!
In biblical prophecies there is a direct correlation between signs in heavenly bodies and distressing events happening on earth…. We are rapidly approaching the time of the fulfilment of these signs.
Mark - 46, "But in those days the sun shall be darkened (eclipse) and the moon shall not give its light (eclipse) then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory."
Yeshua (Jesus) told His disciples what would be the signs of the end of the age and some of them involved signs in the heavens he closes commanding them to ‘watch’ 4 times. To be a "Watcher, and observe what is happening in the heavens" relating to the Last Day, when "unusual signs" are seen in the heavens we watch, pray and record.
"Does YHWH (Yahweh God) use the moon for signs?" Yes: Genesis 1:14, Luke 21:25.
"Does YHWH (Yahweh God) use the moon for signs?" Yes: Genesis 1:14, Luke 21:25.
"Are Feasts relevant to Yahweh, and related to the moon?" Yes: Leviticus 23.
"Are blood-red moons prophetic in Scripture?" Yes: Joel 2:10, 31; Acts 2:20; Revelations 6:12.
"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen..." - Luke Yeshua (Jesus) spoke those words after He warned us of many of the events that will happen in the end times. They are especially relevant to us today when we consider current headlines are now fulfilling Bible prophecy at an absolutely amazing rate — which is setting the stage for more ominous events to happen at any time. The signs are sometimes obvious, such as rumblings in the
Circumstantial evidence should also be considered… You look at the world and you hang your head in shame. It is so sad to see mankind destroying each other and choosing this world over God. In every aspect of life, we see the God of the universe and His creation on two different roads. One is filled with love, patience, kindness, and salvation, where the other is filled with hate, murder, adultery, and perversion. No wonder our world is in such a mess. Creation is groaning for the day when the Father will make all things new.
