"Red Alert Blood Red Moon over Israel means psalm 83/84 war one week! - REALLY?"


 
Charles wrote in his "Red Alert Blood Red Moon over Israel means psalm 83/84 war one week!"
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. So, am I saying that this war is going to break out one week to the day after this eclipse happens this weekend?
The research reveals that not a single eclipse mentioned on the years 1948, 1967, and 1973 are followed in seven days by any war.  A war did happen in 1948, but it started in 1947. A war did happen in 1967 on June 5th, but it did not start seven days after any eclipse. A war did happen on October 6th, 1973, but again, not seven days after an eclipse, months after.

So while Charles might be greatly excited that he may have found a link here, sadly the facts are that there is no link.  I have no problem with the assessment made by Jewish sages that the Lunar eclipse means war will come, nor that the blood red moon has meaning for the state of Israel, but the facts as stated just don't add up.

I do wonder why Charles is getting his information from an ASTROLOGY, and not an astronomy site, which he reports says this:
(Cafe Astrology reports on the solar eclipse and lunar eclipse: when they occur. ... Apr 23, 1948 8:28 AM Sun 3 Tau 18 Opposition Moon 3 Sco 18(LE) May 8, 1948 .... May 9, 1967 10:55 AM Sun 18 Tau 18 Conjunct Moon 18 Tau 18(SE) Oct 18 ... Jan 4, 1973 10:42 AM Sun 14 Cap 10 Conjunct Moon 14 Cap 10(SE) Jan 18 ...)
Since the war started in 1947, his claim is N/A, but it appears he thinks the "opposition moon" which occurred on May 8th is seven days from May 14th, the day Israel declared themselves a nation, as the day the war started ... even if he were right on that, and he isn't, it is noted as an "opposition moon" not an eclipse. ("opposition moon" is a term used in astrology meaning the sun is 180 degrees opposite the moon's position, which they expound on in what is condemned by God, astrology)

May 8th-9th, 1967 are way more than seven days from June 5th 1967.  That leaves Jan 4th, or Jan 18th, in which cafe astrology states a "conjunct Moon", not an eclipse ... even if we ignore that, the war starts 9 months later, not seven days later.  What is a "conjunct Moon?"  It is an astrological term in which certain planets are located in positions related to the moon.

So his assertions don't fit the record.
On the bottom is a listing of the dates mentioned derived from Nasa's listing of the Lunar Eclipses, you can go to their site and verify the dates they list for these events.

Therefore, I wouldn't expect the war to start any more than you may have expected it to start before based upon the Lunar eclipse seven day link ... which basically .... doesn't exist!


In the first phase of the war (1947-48), lasting from November 29, 1947 until April 1, 1948

Strike 1 - The war did not start in 1948


A partial solar eclipse occurred on May 9, 1967  is reported in Wikipedia, but not in the Nasa Records

The Six-Day War also known as the June War, 1967 Arab-Israeli War, or Third Arab-Israeli War, was fought between June 5 and 10, 1967

Strike 2 - IF we assert that a partial eclipse did in fact happen 0n May 9th, 1967, the war started on June 5th, WAY beyond 7 days.


The Yom Kippur War, 1973 Arab-Israeli War, was fought from October 6 to 25, 1973

June, July, and December eclipses, NONE in October

Strike 3 - According to Nasa, there were no Lunar eclipses in October or September.
