Easter ‘Blood Moon’ to Turn sky Red This Weekend – But Was it Predicted in The Bible?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 2, 2015


Saturday’s total lunar eclipse, which will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange, will be visible in in the skies of North America, Asia and Australia

— It’s the third blood moon in the ‘Tetrad’ that will end in September

—  Red moons are predicted in the Bible and signify important events

— Experts predict the rare phenomenon will be visible in the skies between Friday and Sunday and one US pastor believes it could be a sign of Christ’s return

The moon is set to turn a sinister-looking blood red this Easter weekend.

The total lunar eclipse will transform the moon on Saturday night and will be visible in the skies of North America, Asia and Australia.

According to one US pastor, the event was predicted in the Bible and hints at an imminent world-changing event, but Nasa is quick to point out that the change in hue is entirely harmless.

The eclipse is the third in a series of four blood moons, with the final one expected on September 28.

Pastor John Hagee told The Mirror that the sight suggests a world-changing event will take place, as predicted in the Bible.

According to the King James Bible: ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes.’

Mr Hagee, who has written a book on the Tetrad called ‘Four Blood Moons’, said that because the Blood Moon falls on Easter Weekend, it’s a sign that ‘something dramatic will happen which will change the whole world’.

The event is called a Tetrad since it involves four successive total blood red lunar eclipses each followed by six full moons.

I believe we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world,’ he said.

The strange celestial sight, which will be visible in the US, was predicted in the Bible and could hint at a world-changing event, such as the return of Christ, according to one pastor. This image shows the red moon over a church in LA during the last blood moon in October last year

There are numerous mentions of blood moons in the Bible, such as in the Book of Joel, chapter two, which says the ‘Day of the Lord will be as when the sun refuses to shine’ and in Luke, which hints that signs in the sun, moon and stars will tell of the second coming.

While the Bible prophesises blood moons, it does not give a timeline of when the significant event will happen.

Mr Hagee said: ‘It just says “when you see these signs” – and four blood moons is a very significant one – ‘”the end of this age is coming.”’

While the event may be of huge religious significance to some people, for others it will simply be a chance to see something beautiful light up the night sky.

The lunar eclipse will occur when the moon passes behind the Earth, into its shadow.

During the eclipse, the moon often looks reddish because sunlight has passed through Earth’s atmosphere, which filters out most of its blue light,’ Nasa said.

This eerie, harmless effect has earned the tongue-in-cheek nickname “blood moon”’

The ‘Tetrad’ of four alignments within two years, happens just a few times in every 2,000 years.

TheCrossChainTetradThe final blood moon of the Tetrad will occur on September 28 and there will be nine sets of them in the 21st century.

But Nasa has previously said that the Tetrad only happened three times in the past 500 years.

From 1600 to 1900, for example, there were none at all.

According to Mr Hagee, each time the Tetrad has happened during that time, there has been a significant religious event accompanied with it.

In 1493, the first Tetrad saw the expulsion of Jews by the Catholic Spanish Inquisition.

The second happened in 1949, right after the State of Israel was founded.

And the most recent one, in 1967, happened during the Six-Day War between Arabs and Israelis.

— The first of the Tetrad blood moons happened on April 15, right in the middle of the Jewish holiday of Passover.

— The second, on October 8, occurred during the Feast of the Tabernacle.— The third, this Saturday is also occurring during Passover and on Easter –weekend.

— The final one happens on September 28, 2015, during the Feast of the Tabernacles.

SATAN’S THRONE – About to Be Darkened by Prophetic Solar Eclipse

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 19, 2015


Jerusalem was darkened two thousand years ago at the crucifixion – Matthew 27:45, Mark 15:33, and Luke 23:44-45 all comment on it. Luke wrote “tou heliou ekleipontos” – that the sun failed. This was a crucial day for the souls of mankind, when the price for salvation was paid.

When a solar eclipse occurs on the spring equinox (the very day when “light overtakes darkness” and the hours of daylight grow longer than the hours of darkness) over the North Pole (a location known for being the throne of false gods) should we make note of the heavenly symbolism?

Especially at this point in time, YES! The Bible tells us that the generation that sees Israel re-created as a nation will see all other end times prophecy come to pass. Even if you ignore all the other specific clues we have been given, even if you ignore all the signs we are supposed to watch for, this one concept alone lets us know the end times are due very soon, as a generation is about 70 years. Israel was reborn when it declared independence in 1948 and fought its war of independence until 1949. Regardless of your opinion of Israeli politics, the mere existence of Israel for over 66 years means that (if you believe the Bible) EVERYTHING IN PROPHECY is coming soon – and the Antichrist must take center stage three and a half years before the final reckoning on Judgment Day.

So I believe it is time to pay close attention to rare signs in the heavens, like the March 20 eclipse over the North Pole. My Ryrie Study Bible comments on a reference to “the north” in Jeremiah 50:3 “…out of the north. In Jewish thought, the origin of anything sinister.”

Revelation 2:13 says “I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is”

Revelation 16:10-12 says “Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened”

Isaiah 14:12-14 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the NORTH: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

The following excerpt from the book: Antichrist 2016-2019 discusses related points:

Satan attempts to have a throne in the extreme north of the sky, where all the other stars in the heavens appear to rotate around the North Pole Star. This is where the L-shaped constellation Draco the Dragon represents Satan, until there is a pole shift and he falls to earth. Draco’s “L” shape is the basis of the “twisted serpent” of Isaiah 27:1 and even the Hebrew letter “L” (lamed) and the Arabic letter “L” (laam) and the Arabs’ “Allah.” This is where the Maya and other ancient cultures place their false god “about to fall from his throne in the polar center.

Even American Christians have a “false god” at the North Pole. He rides a sky chariot like Apollo, and the eight animals attached to his chariot are like the eight planets of the sun god. He steals most of the attention from Jesus on a holiday when Christians should be contemplating their savior’s willingness to be born as a human to bring us the message of salvation, and instead we focus on material things like presents. This North Pole deity “knows when we’re naughty or nice” and as children we sometimes fear his judgment in late December when he leaves his North Pole throne. The false god is celebrated with a tree (axis) with a bright (pole) star at the top. He comes down the chimney through the fire if necessary, and won’t enter through the door of your house – which is especially interesting in light of John 10:9 when Jesus says “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved.” And of course the name, Santa, is practically spelled the same as Satan. These are not coincidences; the Santa story has a dark side related to Satan and a pole shift.”

So what, you may ask? So what if the North Pole is associated with all sorts of false subsitutes for God – from the Mayan false god (Seven Macaw) – to the savior-like son sent to Earth by a guy in a black suit with a serpent in a pentagram emblem (Jor-El, father of Superman) – to Satan – to Santa Claus – all different types of substitutes for Jesus Christ – so what if there is an eclipse over their North Pole throne? Prophetically, why should that mean anything?

The Bible tells us from the very beginning (Genesis 1:14) to watch the sky for signs. As William Frederick wrote in a different article posted here: “This 20th of March, a 15 MILLION year event is going to happen. There will be a total solar eclipse visible from the North Pole just as the sun is rising…That an eclipse of that magnitude happens on the North Pole on that specific day is a 500,000 year event. That said day corresponds with the religious new year is a 15 MILLION year event (multiplying the former quantity for the 30 days of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar).”

Also keep in mind this SOLAR eclipse comes in the middle of four LUNAR eclipses that fall exactly on the Jewish holidays of Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015. Mark Biltz, John Hagee, and others have written books about the FOUR BLOOD MOONS and the symbolic meaning of these eclipses and their rare lineups with Jewish holidays. Major events have occurred within a year of the last three sets of holiday blood moon eclipses, and I expect another historical and prophecy-fulfilling event within a year of the current set of blood moon eclipses.

The World – In 1492 the Jews were expelled from Spain, the Spanish officially discovered the Americas, and the Jews spread out to live in many new countries. This worldwide diaspora included the United States, where eventually there were more Jews than in Israel. Within one year of these historical events there was a holiday tetrad of blood moons in 1493 and 1494.

The Nation of Israel – Israel was re-established as a nation in 1948, and within a year of this independence there was a blood moon tetrad on the Passovers and Sukkots of 1949 and 1950.

The City of Jerusalem – Israelis reunited all of Jerusalem under Jewish rule after recapturing East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in 1967. Within a year, there was a similar tetrad in 1967 and 1968.

The Temple – Some Israelis have wanted to build a new Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount ever since 1967. With Hamas rockets being fired from Gaza into Jerusalem as I write this, the possibility exists that one could destroy the Dome of the Rock Mosque. If it is destroyed, whether by war or a fanatic or any other cause, such destruction would remove the main obstacle to Jewish claims over the entire Temple Mount. Or perhaps the lost Ark of the Covenant is discovered, prompting the establishment of a Temple to properly house it. My research points to the reestablishment of some form of Third Temple in Jerusalem no later than June 6, 2016. This would be within a year of the tetrads of holiday blood moons in 2014 and 2015 and seems to fit the increasingly focused geographical fulfillment of prophetic events near blood moon tetrads.”

I strongly suspect that the eclipses this year are significant end times signs.

Easter1Ethiopian Orthodox Christians celebrate Easter anywhere from a week to two weeks after the western Church (sometimes, they occur at the same time, due to the vagaries of the Eastern Orthodox calendar, which Ethiopians follows). Fasika (Easter) follows eight weeks of fasting from meat and dairy. On Easter Eve, Ethiopian Christians participate in an hours-long church service that ends around 3 a.m., after which they break their fast and celebrate the risen Christ.
