A few years ago a pastor in Washington State named Mark Biltz discovered an unusual pattern while studying lunar eclipses. When four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total eclipses, it is known as a tetrad, a fairly rare phenomenon. But what made this tetrad even more unusual is that the dates all landed on Jewish holy days of Passover 2014, Sukkot 2014, Passover 2015, and Sukkot 2015. The chances of this happening are miniscule, and such an occurance has not happened since 1967-1968 (six-day war) ; previous to that, 1949-1950 (Israel becoming a nation); in the 1700′s and 1800s there were no tetrads which landed on Jewish holy days at all.
These dates are:
- April 15, 2014 (Passover)
- October 8, 2014 (Sukkot)
- April 4, 2015 (Passover)
- September 28, 2015 (Sukkot)
While this does not in itself mean anything, necessarily, it is important to take note of because, in Genesis 1, God says that He put lights in the heavens to serve as signs:
Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and seasons, and for days and years: … And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser to rule the night: he made the stars also
The hebrew word for signs, used above, is moed, which means “appointed times”. When one studies the Feasts of the Lord, such as Shabbat, Passover, Trumpets, Tabernacles, etc, one finds that they are all based on the new moon.
So it is more than likely that these dates in 2014 and 2015 have a great significance. But what is that significance, exactly? It is possible that there will be a significant war or other event having to do with Israel – since the last two tetrads mark such events.
