Blood Moon Tetrad: Is It The End Of The World, again?

blood moon

Cornerstone Church Pastor John Hagee has written a book ‘Four Blood Moons – Something is about to Change’, the book is about a rather rare astronomical phenomenon. A ‘Blood Moon’ is when the Earth goes directly in between the Sun and the Moon, then the light from the Sun passes through the Earth’s atmosphere and deflects onto the Moon. It’s called a ‘Blood’ Moon because the light of the sun passing through a great amount of the Earth’s atmosphere turns the Sun’s light red, like the low sun of a sunset.

Hagee and some other Pastors have discovered that there will be four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no partial lunar eclipses in between – something called a ‘Tetrad’ by astrologers. What has really got the Pastors all excited is that these events will coincide exactly with four Biblical holidays of Israel. In fact, we ain’t got long, because the first ‘Blood Moon’ will coincide with the first day of Passover 2014, the second with the 1st day of Tabernacles 2014, the third with the 1st day of Passover 2015 and the fourth will coincide with the 1st day of Tabernacles 2015. In between all these events will be a total eclipse of the Sun, the Solar Eclipse will happen on the First of the Jewish Month of Nissan, the ‘leading month’ in the Jewish Calendar, the month when The Children of Israel were freed from 210 years of Slavery in ancient Egypt.

Now while lunar eclipses are quite common, a tetrad coinciding with Biblical Feasts has happened just a few times in thousands of years, the last time it happened according to NASA was immediately after the six-day-war when Israel liberated Jerusalem, before that was in 1949 after Israel’s war of Independence, before that it coincided with the Spanish Inquisition, when the Jews were expelled from Spain.

Tetrad Calendar

So it’s quite clear that if this is a sign, it’s a big deal, and that’s what the Bible says they are.

And 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

Genesis 1:14

While the good Pastors are making some pretty convincing arguments and he even uses NASA’s own astronomical data, we are starting to get a little tired of all these apocalyptic prophecies. Recently we made it through the Y2K computer apocalypse without so much as a hiccup, the 12.21.2012 Mayan Prophecy for the end of times has come and gone, and in case you hadn’t realized, unfortunately, the world didn’t come to an abrupt halt a year ago. Oh, and as for global warming? don’t get me started!

So, is something really about to change? Are four blood moons in a row that coincide with sequential Jewish Festivals really a sign from God that great wonders are upon us, or is it just a tease? The Pastors don’t know what the tetrad means, what do you think?

    Being Jewish myself, I instantly became intrigued by the coming four blood moons and their significance for us Jews throughout history. In my own research of blood moons at specific times, however, I noticed an absence of any pattern that would support what the Talmud says regarding the meaning of blood moons.

    According to the Talmud (Tractate Sukkah 29a), lunar eclipses are supposed to be a bad sign for us Jews, whereas solar eclipses are supposed to be a bad sign for the rest of the world. History seems to prove otherwise. The blood moons that occurred in 1493-1494, for example, came after the expulsion of Jews from Spain, not before or during the expulsion. There had been other expulsions of Jews from England, France, Germany and many other countries to which Jews had lived for some time, yet there were no blood moons to warn them. Probably the reason for this is because the blood moons of 1493-1494 were not signs of impending persecution of Jews, but rather deliverance from persecution. Prophets of the Old Testament warned that Jews would face ongoing persecution in the nations to which they were dispersed, so they knew what was coming. It was just a question of when. This would also explain why there were no blood moons before or during the Holocaust. Most people question why there wasn't some sort of heavenly sign warning of the Holocaust simply because of its enormity. But the Holocaust, though it remains unprecedented in its scope, was merely another horrific episode in the ongoing persecution of Jews.

    In 1493, colonization of the New World had begun and the New World became a safe haven for Jews, including the founding of the United States of America, Israel's strongest and most supportive ally. This can only be what the blood moons of that time were signaling. So while the coming blood moons of 2014-2015 may usher in a time of great calamity and suffering, there will be a light at the end of the tunnel-the beginning of a new era for all humanity. Also, it doesn't matter at what point on Earth the blood moons will be visible, only that they will occur.
