I am always fascinated by all things heavenly – ie. the stars, moons, planets etc. so when I heard about the Blood Moon tetrad happening over the next 18 months (beginning this past Tuesday, April 15th, 2014), I thought, ‘wow, this is pretty cool stuff.’

(Great scientific explanation of what is a Blood Moon Tetrad on

I have to admit that before doing a little research, I was skeptical that this was going to be another doomsday predictor that passes by without notice. But it also seemed like there were more than the usual number of earthquakes in the last week or two. I actually went the to EarthQuake Tracker to see what was happening. Apparently they do not consider this past week’s earthquake activity unusual.

I was aware of the Bible prophecy regarding the Blood Moons, which are mentioned in 3 times in the Bible as follows:

Joel 2:31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. …

Acts 2:20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. …

Revelation 6:12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, … The full moon turned as red as blood. …

But the most informative and fascinatiing article I have found to date was from the site called with this article – The Coming Blood Moons While NASA will say that the lunar eclipse tetrad is not really all that rare, it IS rare in that this set lines up with the Jewish Feasts. When this has happened in the past, STUFF happened for the Jews – The Spanish Inquisition, the new state of Israel, the 6-day war etc. (read the article for more details)

While I firmly believe that NO ONE knows the day or the hour of Jesus’ return, we are to keep watch and be on our guard. Jesus told us in Mark 13:32-33

32“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard, keep awake.a For you do not know when the time will come.
