Lunar Tetrad in 2014-2015

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries has done a fascinating study into future heavenly events as compared to Bible Prophecy. Most Christians know the "Day of the Lord" (the Trib) is preceded by "the sun will be as sackcloth and the moon will be as blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord." ~Joel 2:31

While gazing at a photograph of a blood moon (a total lunar eclipse where the moon passes through the penumbra of the earth's shadow, giving it a red glow), Pastor Biltz realized the "moon to blood" was probably a blood moon eclipse. He wanted to find out when these blood moons appear on a future calendar date, and the above video is what he found.

We cannot be certain of what will happen during these years, obviously. Some people believe it's a sign of the Tribulation's beginning. Others believe it will mark the Abomination of Desolation spoken of in Daniel 9 and Matthew 24. However, since the "AoD" takes place mid-Trib according to Daniel, that would mean the actual Trib would have to begin in the fall of 2011. I guess time will tell.

What isn't touched on in this video is there is a total SOLAR eclipse in the middle of this 2014-2015 lunar tetrad as well. It falls on March 20th, 2015. And guess what day that is on the Jewish calendar? The first day of their new year, 5775. Not a feast day, true, but the fact that it falls on the first day of the Jewish new year also seems significant to me.

Genesis 1:14:

14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.
