Act 2:20- The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.
If you missed the first red blood moon (April 15, 2014) do not fret because the next red blood moon is October 08, 2014. This red blood moon may be a warning sign to the East and American because it will be visible in North American. Its precedent by the Feast of Trumpets or The Jewish New Year (September 25, 2014) which is more of a calling card to get your act together.
The map of the Earth below shows which part of the world will be in the dark during the October 08, 2014 red blood moon.
North and South America, the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand, Australia and eastern Asia are in a good position worldwide to watch the total eclipse of the moon on October 8. If you live in the Americas or Hawaii, the total eclipse happens before sunrise October 8. In the world’s eastern hemisphere, the total eclipse happens after sunset October 8.
Joel 2:31-The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.
The day is called the Feast of the Tabernacles or Sukkot is a day when the Hebrews returned to the Holy of Holies in the Temple/Tabernacles and humbles themselves before God.
So what makes October 08, 2014 red blood moon interesting is that they happened in a series of 4 or tetrads and shaped world events.
Even rarer is a phenomenon that Mark Biltz discovered. Of the 87 tetrads that have occurred since the time of Christ, only 8 have fallen on Jewish feast days. Those eight occurred in the following years: 162-163, 795-796, 842-843, 860-861, 1428-1429, 1493-1494, 1949-1950 and 1967-1968.9
For an example of what is meant by a tetrad falling on Jewish feast days, consider the tetrad of 1967-1968.10
- Passover, April 24, 1967 — Blood Moon
- Feast of Tabernacles, October 18, 1967 — Blood Moon(Total Solar Eclipse, November 2, 1967)
- Passover, April 13, 1968 — Blood Moon
- Feast of Tabernacles, October 6, 1968 — Blood Moon
Biltz and Hagee both make much of the fact that the last three tetrads that fell on Jewish feast days occurred at times when significant events were happening among the Jewish people:
- 1493-1494 — This tetrad followed the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.
- 1949-1950 — This tetrad followed the re-establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.
- 1967-1968 — The beginning of this tetrad occurred right before the beginning of the Six Day war in 1967.
Notice that two of these tetrads followed the significant events. Only one (1967-1968) served as a partial precursor of the event. And notice that there was no significant event in Jewish history that was related to the first five tetrads that fell on Jewish feast days.
