Red blood moons
The Bible tells us that in the past, God spoke to his chose people, Israel, in a variety ways including unique celestial phenomena that includes the sun and moon.
All signs in the sun and moon have special relevance for the Jewish people in general and the nation of Israel in particular.
Did you know that there are four red blood moons scheduled to appear on Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) this year and in 2015? These back red blood moons on Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles have occurred seven times previously in history. The last two times were in 1949-1950 during Israel’s War of Independence and victory over five powerful Arab neighbors, and in 1967-1968, Israel’s amazing victory in just six days over the same Arab neighbors in June 1967. These back-to-back red moons are not scheduled to take place again for over 100 years from now.
Now suppose you had a personal spaceship. At midnight, blast off and fly down the middle of Earth’s shadow. Keep going until you’re about 200,000 miles above Earth, almost to the moon. Now turn around and look down. The view from your cockpit window is Earth’s nightside, the dark half of our planet opposite the sun would be completely dark. All around Earth’s limb, the atmosphere glows red. The moon would glow vivid red, too.
On the following days the moon is scheduled to become red: Passover, April 15; Feast of the Trumpets, Sept. 25; Passover, April 4, 2015; and Sukkot, Sept. 28, 2015.
