Thank you Pastor Mark Biltz, El Shaddai Ministries and NASA Eclipse WebSite for research that is shared in this Signpost article entitled NASA’s Blood Red Moons—Part 2. We continue to look at the 500 year history and the past three tetrads that have occurred as a “sign to mark sacred times.”
The Land of God has never belonged to Israel. The Land belongs to God and cannot be permanently bought or sold or given away.
The Land cannot be stolen or confiscated as indicated in Psalms 83:12 which rehearse the mind-set of the Middle East. "Let us seize for our own use these pasturelands of God!" God says, Israel is a tenant in His Land, “The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is Mine and you reside in My land as foreigners and strangers.” (Leviticus 25:23)
Last week we briefly discussed the event called the Spanish Inquisition that occurred on July 30, 1492. The inquisition ordered Jews and Muslims to convert to the Catholic faith to ensure the orthodoxy or to leave Spain.
History repeated itself as the entire Jewish community of Spain was exiled. God caused a tetrad to occur on four specific designated feast dates to “mark” Luke 24:21 which says, “And they,” (Jewish people were exiled and) “shall be led away captive into all nations.”
Subsequent to that date, Passover and Feast of Tabernacles, 1493 and 1494, Four Blood Moons marked a sacred time to commemorate the story in Christopher Columbus’s diary that reads.
“In the same month in which their Majesties (Ferdinand and Isabella) issued the edict that all Jews should be driven out of the kingdom and its territories, in the same month they gave me the order to undertake with sufficient men my expedition of discovery to the Indies.” It was in this same era that America was discovered and has provided a home to more Jewish believers than any Nation in the world.
God recorded in Amos 9:15, (NIV) “I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them." That decree came from the UN on May 14, 1948.
The Nation of Israel was rebirthed and a “sign to mark sacred times” was given in the sky. Passover and Sukkot in 1949 and 1950 were celebrated with four total lunar eclipses. The lunar billboard in the sky was during the first Arab-Israeli War for Independence just after Israel had become a nation again.
Joshua 21:45 states, “Not one of all the Lord's good promises to the house of Israel failed; everyone was fulfilled” and He continues to fulfill each promise.
Luke’s gospel predicted the day would come in Luke 21:24 when Jerusalem would no longer be “trodden down of the Gentiles." Jerusalem was captured by Israeli forces on June 7, 1967. Passover and the Blood Red Moons began on April 24, 1967 as a “sign to mark sacred times.”
Before the second Blood Red Moon occurred the Six-Day War was fought June 5 through June 10, 1967 and was over. Jerusalem was again under the national government of Israel.
What sign will be in our future with these Blood Moons? The first and only tetrad during this century will be a “sign to mark sacred times.” Will these four Blood Red Moons beginning at Passover, Apr 15, 2014 be a sacred sign for a major event in the life of Israelis or will this be the Clarion Call to signal the world of God’s plan?
What could it be as we observe the lunar billboard in the sky? Look for the Blood Red Moons on each of the following dates: A Solar Eclipse will occur on Oct. 8, 2014, Feast of Tabernacles; March 20, 2015, Solar Eclipse, Jewish New Year; April 4, 2015, Passover; Sept. 13, 2015, Solar Eclipse, Feast of Trumpets; and finally, Sept. 28, 2015, Feast of Tabernacles.
God says through Joel 2:31 that “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”
