THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL:
Did you know that the next Feast of Sukkot (Tabernacles) will be ushered in by a ‘blood moon’ (total lunar eclipse) on September 27th? Not just any blood moon but a super blood moon. This occurs when the moon is at perigee – closer to the earth than at any other time of the year. Given that it will be centred over
Israel, it will
appear 14% larger than a regular full moon there. There has never been a super
blood moon on the Sukkot following a shemitah (Sabbath) year before.
The Bible sets shemitah years to occur every seven years as an economic reset year; debt is eliminated and slaves go free. To give the land a chance to rest. The current shemitah started in October 2014 and goes until 13 September 2015. The last 2 shemitah years – 2001 and 2008 - have seen highly significant financial crises.
The Jewish Talmud (book of interpretation) says:
“When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for
Israel. If its face is as red as blood, (it is a sign that) the sword is coming to the world.”
In other words, it is a portent of judgement or war in their view.
In Genesis 1:14, we read that God created the sun, moon and the stars not only to give us day and night but also as prophetic signs. During the period from April 2014 to September 2015, there will have been a ‘tetrad’ (four) of these blood moons, each one of them falling on the full moon festivals of Passover or Tabernacles. As stated, however, only the last one will be visible from the
(Heavenly signs are not considered by the prophets to be significant unless
they are). Land of Israel
The above photograph gives you some idea of what will be seen (weather permitting) from
on the evening of September 27th. As you can see, it is going to be
an amazing spectacle. More than this, however, if the prophets (both Jewish and
Christian) are right in their understanding of the times, then has the time
come for you to throw caution to the winds, seize the day and make the trip
which has been on your bucket list all these years.
Can you afford to put it off any longer?
