Four 'blood-red' total lunar eclipses will fall on Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015 …
the same back-to-back occurrences at the time of 1492, 1948 and 1967
Thursday, August 04, 2011
Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries (a Messianic Jew) has been sharing some remarkable discoveries on the blood-red moon and Jewish feast connections in the past three months. He now has some new discoveries.
He is an avid student and teacher of the Jewish Feasts and their awe-inspiring connections to the Lord's earthly events.
Mark has been looking into the possible connection to past and future Jewish Feasts at which time he found very significant connections.
Seven back-to-back, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover and Sukkot, with the eighth time coming in 2014 and 2015
Mark found that we have had blood-red moons on the first day of Passover and the first day of Sukkot (Tabernacles) on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D.
Three of these occurrences were connected to:
· 1492 (the final year of the Catholic Spanish Inquisition)
· 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence)
· and the 1967 (the Six-Day War)
— some of the most significant days in Jewish history.
The others were in 162/163 A.D., 795/796 A.D., 842/843 A.D. and 860/861 A.D.
We don’t have any historical connections for these years at this time, but we do know of significant Jewish persecution during the eighth and ninth centuries.
In all eight examples, the eclipses have fallen or will fall on the first day of Passover and Sukkot.
The eighth occurrence of back-to-back, blood-red moons will be in 2014–2015.
So what does the period of time from 2013 to 2015 portend for Israel and the world?
We will closely watch the peace efforts in Israel to see if a peace deal is signed — knowing that 2015 is 3 and a half years later. I am not date-setting, and I certainly won’t speculate, but the lineup of occurrences is very intriguing.
Solar eclipses and their connection to the month of Av
We know that the month of Av — and especially the 9th of Av — has been the most trying period throughout history for the Jewish people…
· total solar eclipses have been a bad omen for the nations
· blood-red moons have been a bad omen for the Jewish people and Israel

Three sets of blood-red moons that corresponded to significant events:
The Spanish Inquisition final year 1492 when the Alhambra Decree ordered all remaining Jews who would not convert to Christianity to leave Spain, the 1948 War of Independence and the 1967 Six-Day War had back-to-back, blood-red moons occur on the first day of Passover and Sukkot the following two years or beginning the same year of the 1967 Six-Day War for two years.

2000-year history of blood-red moons' connection to Passover and Sukkot
Mark says that during this century, the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God's holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn's Feast of Tabernacles (also called Sukkoth) occur in 2014 and 2015 on today's Gregorian calendar.
He noticed a pattern:
There were no astronomical back-to-back blood-red moon events in the 1800s, the 1700s or the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Sukkoth.
The 2014/2015 events will be the last this century.
The Month of Av Disaster and Consolation
By every measure the Jewish month of Av is tragically unique, one in which the worst disasters in our history took place.
The 15th of Av however was a time of joy.
In ancient times it was a day in which marriages were arranged and new beginnings celebrated. It was a time in which we began again, expressing not just who we don't want to be but who we can be.
Jewish history: Aaron died on 1st of Av (chabad.org)
Aaron died on the first day of Av (in the year 2447). He was 122 years old when he died, being three years older than Moses.
The entire people of Israel, both men and women, mourned the death of Aaron for 30 days. Everybody knew Aaron as a great lover of peace, who brought love and harmony among people and in many a home.
17 Tammuz to 9 Av — 21 days of mourning
The 21 days from 17 Tammuz to 9 Av, and the fast days of 17 Tammuz and 9 Av, are times of morning for the Jewish people.
The fast of the 17th of Tammuz, the day of the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem, marks the beginning of the "Three Weeks." The fast of the 9th of Av commemorates the day of the actual destruction by fire of the Holy Temple and is the last day of the Three Weeks.

You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse on Adar 29/Nisan 1 (March 20, 2015); two weeks later, a total lunar eclipse on Passover (April 4, 2015); then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse; followed two weeks later by another total blood-red moon on the Feast of Succoth — all in 2015.
As these blood red moons portend very badly for Israel; many see this as the sign marking the mid-point of the Tribulation or the beginning of The Great Tribulation, the last three and one-half years.
If 2015 is the mid-point of a seven-year tribulation …
