Blood Moon Tetrad, 2015

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2015 by paulthepoke

Joel 2:31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

The blood moon tetrad has come and gone in September 2015. We are all still here. The world did not end. Jesus did not come.


For the critic whose religion is science, this blog will use data provided by NASA. Assess from another point of view. Consider there is a being capable of creating these heavenly bodies. Is humanity the pinnacle of intellect? Consider the orbits of these heavenly bodies are ridiculously predictable and trustworthy…chance? We can calculate their positions in space and time: past, present, and future. Consider we were created with the ability to discern these things. Calculate the odds. Open your mind. These celestial events were created for this time in history with a specific purpose. For all who consider themselves as rational and thoughtful, consider the evidence on your scientific terms. As you see it, all of your linear logic is based on random chance and chaos coming together to form incomprehensible order.

The first time the blood moon tetrad and solar eclipse phenomena happened on God’s appointed holidays was during 32-33 AD (NASA). What we witnessed in 2015 (spring and fall) is exactly as it was in the sky and on the calendar (Hebrew and Gregorian) as it was when Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected.

There are some interesting facts to consider. This most recent phenomenon is the last for some time. The blood moon tetrad series does not occur on God’s appointed holidays until 2582-2583 AD. That is 568 years from now. (NASA).

The blood moon tetrad series in conjunction with the solar eclipses does not occur again on God’s appointed holidays for roughly 1,000 years (NASA).

The 1,000 year gap from now, 2015, to the next occurrence (roughly 3015) is most interesting in light of Revelation 20:2-7. It is stated six (6) times. Jesus Christ’s kingdom on Earth is 1,000 years.

Of note, there are two more solar eclipses in the sequence. These are numbers three and four of the four consecutive solar eclipses. One is on the eve of the religious new year in the spring of 2016. The solar eclipse introduces God’s spring appointed holidays. The other is on the eve of the civil new year in the fall of 2016. The solar eclipse introduces God’s fall appointed holidays.

Why, in late June 2015, the Star of Bethlehem phenomenon in the sky?

Why all of this now?

Day Four of Creation Week

Genesis 1:14… Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons

…let them be for signs and for seasons…

The Hebrew word for “signs” is ‘owth. It means: sign, signal, a distinguishing mark, banner, remembrance, miraculous sign, omen, warning; token, ensign, standard, miracle, proof (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

…let them be for signs and for seasons

The Hebrew word for “seasons” is mow`ed (singular); mow`edim (plural). It means: appointed place, appointed time, meeting; appointed time; sacred season, set feast, appointed season; appointed meeting; appointed sign or signal; tent of meeting (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

This was the eighth occurrence of the blood moon tetrad phenomenon on God’s appointed holidays. God stated He would use the heavens as a signal or sign.

At the least, the phenomena are a reminder of Christ and His work on the cross. The apostle Peter points this out in Acts 2. He is our payment for our penalty of sin.

If, this most recent blood moon tetrad was the “sign” of Joel 2:31 … we have been warned.

Trend Update: Star of Bethlehem, June 30, 2015

In the sky on June 30, 2015, there will be an event comparable to the Star of Bethlehem. The planets of Jupiter and Venus will be in conjunction. Regulus, the brightest star of the constellation of Leo will be in close proximity. This will occur in the western sky about 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time in the United States.

Take all of this for what it is worth. Please do your own homework. At the very least, it is curious and thought provoking.

Let’s look at the heavenly structures involved. The first is the planet Jupiter. It has long been known as the King Planet. Who is known as the King of Kings? Revelation 19:16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

The second actor is the planet Venus. It is known as the bright morning star in ancient cultures. It is seen before the sun sets in the evening. And Venus rises before the sun in the morning. Who is known as the bright morning star? Jesus Himself answers the question. Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

In the Hebrew Mazzaroth or constellations, Leo is a constellation. Leo is a lion and the last in order of 12 constellations. Leo is the culmination of the story of the Hebrew Messiah. The story starts with the constellation Virgo or a virgin. Who is known as a lion? Revelation 5:5 and one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.”

The brightest star in the constellation Leo is Regulus. It is the alpha star. We get our English word “regal” from the Latin word. It means “king”. Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Even CBS News and other secular news sources are making the connection between the celestial events on June 30, 2015 and the Star of Bethlehem. These folks are hardly supportive and friendly to the contents of the Bible. Even environmentalists and Communists are noting the event.

See the patch below from Walid Shoebat. He is a former Palestinian terrorist who converted to Christianity. He is from the Middle East.  Shoebat has unique cultural perspectives we cannot relate to. He believes this celestial event is a sign. He thinks this signifies the Second Coming of Christ is close. He gives support of his prophetic opinion with references from the Bible.
