Dear John and Doves:
 
In the above-linked posting, Charles wrote:
This type of lunar eclipse has happen three previous times in the last 100 years. They happened in 1948, 1967, and 1973!! If you know your history, you know that these dates are all dates of every war Israel has fought since her birth in 1948!!! This eclipse is announcing another war - this time it's the Ezekiel 38/Psalms 83 war that we've been expecting to blow up anytime now. Every single one of these wars started ONE WEEK TO THE DAY after their corresponding eclipses.
Charles is referencing the eclipse of this past Saturday.  I don't know what source Charles was using, but I went to http://cafeastrology.com/eclipsessolarlunar.html and checked the dates on all the eclipses, lunar and solar, for the years in question.  There was a SOLAR eclipse a week before the war began on May 15th, 1948 but the correlation Charles cites between lunar eclipses and subsequent commencments of hostilities does not exist.  NONE of these wars started "ONE WEEK TO THE DAY" after a lunar eclipse.
 
In 1967, the eclipse preceding hostilities was a solar eclipse 27 days before.  In 1973 the previous eclipse was lunar and occurred 83 days before.  Note:  (LE) = lunar eclipse       (SE) = solar eclipse

There are still compelling reasons to believe a war is in the very near future.  But Saturday's lunar eclipse does not give us any additional reasons, at least not for the non-existant correlations Charles claimed.
 
Cheers!
