What are the Blood Moons?

Blood Moon: A Blood Moon is the name for a special eclipse of the moon. A regular eclipse occurs when the the earth passes between the moon and the sun, casting a shadow on the moon. A Blood Moon is a full lunar eclipse when the shadow turns an orange-red color, thus giving it the name Blood Moon. Lunar eclipses are fairly common.

 

Blood Moon Tetrad: A Tetrad occurs when there are four Blood Moon lunar eclipses in a row, with no other lunar eclipses occuring between them. This is a less-common occurance.

 

Prophetic/Biblical Blood Moon Tetrad: What is rare is when these Blood Moon Tetrads happen on "Jewish" Feast Days, or the Feasts of the Lord. Typically these Feasts are Passover (Pesach) and Tabernacles (Sukkot). These Tetrads have only happened seven times in the past 3,000 years, with the current Blood Moon Tetrad being the eighth event.  Passover is the first Feast of the Biblical calendar, and Tabernacles is the last Feast of the year. Each time this Prophetic Blood Moon Tetrad has happened, a significant event has happened to either the Jewish people (the people of Judah), to the Christian church (Israel "lost in the nations"), or is connected to the people of Islam.

 

Solar Eclipse: A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, blocking the light from the sun making it "black as sackcloth". Solar eclipses are very common. What is less common is when these solar eclipses happen on a Feast Day or an important date on the Biblical calendar. It is important prophetically when these solar eclipses are connected to the Biblical Blood Moon Triads.

 

Prophetic meaning of eclipses: In Jewish teaching, a lunar eclipse is a warning or signal of trouble or judgment for the nation of Israel. A solar eclipse is a warning or signal of trouble or judgment for the non-Jewish "nations" (Gentiles or Goyim).
