FOUR BLOOD MOONS

Is Everything About to Change? The First of Four Blood Moons Occurs April 15

April 15, 2014|8:03 am

Astronomical events have been making headlines lately. On April 8, the orbits of Mars, Earth, and the sun fell into a straight line in a rare cosmic alignment called an opposition. Precisely one week later, we will see the first of four extremely unusual total lunar eclipses.

Is there any significance to these extraordinary celestial events? Could it be that God is using the sun, moon, and stars to communicate with us and to announce things to come? The answer is yes!

The Bible is clear that the sun, moon, and stars are connected to Israel and biblical prophecy. Throughout history God has used the science of astronomy (never astrology!) in connection with historical events to write prophetic messages in the heavens.

One significant way God reveals coming events is through a phenomenon that scientists call “Blood Moons.” These are total lunar eclipses in which the moon appears to be blood red.

The coming message from God is so urgent that He is going to sovereignly arrange the sun and the moon to perfectly align themselves to create not just one Blood Moon, but a Tetrad-a series of four consecutive Blood Moons!

NASA has projected that the next Tetrad will begin on April 15, 2014 and end on September 28, 2015. It will occur in the following sequence:

1. Passover-April 15, 2014
2. Feast of Tabernacles-October 8, 2014
3. Passover-April 4, 2015
4. Feast of Tabernacles-September 28, 2015

Four Blood Moons (Tetrads) that are significant to Israel and also occur during Jewish Feasts are extremely rare-they have happened only three times in more than five hundred years.

To understand the significance of this coming series of Four Blood Moons, we need to consider the globally significant religious events connected with the previous three Tetrads.

The Four Blood Moons of 1493–94 announced the Edict of Expulsion, which banished from Spain all Jewish people who, despite being tortured, refused to convert to Catholicism during the Spanish Inquisition. But their tears ended in triumph when Christopher Columbus found a haven for Jews around the world: America.

The Four Blood Moons of 1949–50 followed the birth of the State of Israel, in which God gathered the Jewish exiles from the nations of the world and brought them home to the land of covenant as foretold by the Old Testament prophets.

The Four Blood Moons of 1967–68 coincided with the Six-Day War, when the city of Jerusalem was finally reunited with the State of Israel. Today, Jerusalem is more than the country’s “undivided capital”-it’s where Christ was crucified for the sins of the world and where He will return to rule a global kingdom that will never end.

Three series of Four Blood Moons.

Three important historical events that affected the Jewish people-and the world.

And it’s about to happen for a fourth time!

What is God saying to us in the Four Blood Moons of 2014–15?

Unlike the others, this series of Four Blood Moons not only contains a total solar eclipse, but it also contains a Shemittah year, which occurs every seventh year-or every Sabbath year. Astoundingly, this Shemittah year will begin on the first day of the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) on September 25, 2014 and conclude on the following Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) on September 13, 2015.

Follow this astonishing phenomenon:

The occurrence of a Tetrad, or four consecutive Blood Moons, is rare.

A Tetrad with a total solar eclipse within its series is very rare.
A Tetrad with a total solar eclipse that is significant to Israel’s history and Jewish Feasts is very, very rare.
A Tetrad with a total solar eclipse historically significant to Israel and Jewish Feasts that includes a Shemittah year is very, very, very rare.
But a Tetrad with a total solar eclipse, historically significant to Israel, falling on Jewish Feasts, and including a Shemittah year that corresponds with the Feast of Trumpets is astronomically rare!
The fourth Tetrad is coming. God is shouting to us, “Something big is about to happen!”

The Four Blood Moons of 2014–15 tell us that God is getting ready to change the course of human history once again.

God is clearly speaking to us through the coming series of Four Blood Moons. The question is, are we watching and listening?

NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN

NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN

                       
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  Luke 2:1-14 KJV)

   Imagine having to walk to the town in which you were born. Joseph walked to Bethlehem after Caesar Augustus ordered all men to pay taxes. While Mary being with child and nearly ready to deliver her baby rode a donkey back the Bethlehem.  The men were to go back to their home town, and be counted and pay the government. 

What is a MANGER?  A manger is a feeding trough for animals. Certainly it
is a filthy place where animals eat. Imagine a mother laying her newborn baby in a feeding trough, or a manger which is the same thing.  Well, Mary the mother of Jesus did just that. Mary and Joseph were very poor.  In Bible times, and some places today it is considered a great honor to house strangers. Later when travel became more common, towns would have small accommodations and even smaller for their animals.  One person would be appointed the Inn Keeper. It was just this way when Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem on that starry night. 
One reason Christ Jesus was laid in a manger was in Isaiah 53 the Bible says,
          “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” (Isaiah 53:3, 4 KJV)
Jesus left His splendor of heaven to be born in a world that did not want Him.  He was despised, rejected, and he knew what grief was.  Christ was born on purpose in a world that did not want Him only to die on a cruel cross to save His people from their sins.( Matt 1:21)   But this little manger was His royal cradle.  Jesus Christ was born the King. Yet He never owned a home, and never had a place to lay his head.  If Jesus was born rich, and given a throne in the town, instead of being lain in a manger, we would tremble at the thought of coming to Christ. But this lowly manger invites us ALL poor and rich.  The manger shows that coming to Christ is indeed free. The Gospels shouts from the manger that all can come to Christ rich or poor, and most importantly those who sin.  Furthermore, we have all sinned. (Romans 3:23)   Therefore we can all come to Christ without feeling as if we should change first.  Christ will change you after you come to Him.  

 

None of the shops in the Bethlehem had room for Jesus.  In this country there is no room for Jesus in the public schools.  During Jesus’ life there was no room for Him in the synagogues, or the Temple, and today there is no room for Him in the very churches that “worship” him.  In fact in these places is where he found most of his enemies.  Today, there is no room for him in the department stores.  Many stores refuse to say Merry Christmas.  Instead they say, happy holidays, or call it a holiday tree, or the children are on winter break and not Christmas break.  Jesus is used to being pushed out of this world.  It is because He is not of this world. 

There is a lot of talk about TOLERANT.  The definition of tolerant is the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.  There is toleration to everything, except Christ.  If you feel and believe your Christianity should be spread; there is no room for Him in the public.  However many are very tolerant of all other forms of religion and beliefs but we dare not speak the name of Jesus or quote the Bible.  It is frowned upon when a Christian tries to spread their beliefs, however if people of different lifestyles want to spread their agenda in our schools, and communities that we have to tolerate that junk.  Yet Christians are not allowed to do that at all. There is no room for Him in the public at all. 

In this world we can talk about teachers, preachers, ministers or anything connected to the church.  But we are NEVER allowed to utter the name of JESUS. We cannot talk about God or the Godhead because there is no room for Him in this world. 

In the workplace we have room for cussing, alcohol, drugs, nasty jokes and pornography, lewd conversations but no room for Christ. The Bibles says, ” to come out from among them and be separate and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you unto myself, and be a Father unto you and ye shall be my sons and daughters.”  That is what Christ says to us all.  That means that Christians are to be different. We are to be looked as being peculiar.  Because we are separate we are not like this world.  Some believe that Christianity is a bunch of rules. Ye shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you free.  Jesus is the TRUTH. No room for Him in their lives.

Do you have room for Christ?  Today is the accepted time, today is the day of salvation.  “Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear my voice and let me in I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me Rev. 3:20.”    We all need to cleanse the manger of our hearts, and change it to God’s Throne, and let Him reign forever Lord of our lives. Do you have room for Christ in your heart?
