Note: I have made this as short as I can without going into a lot of detail to spare you a verbose thread. There is much more that could be said but hopefully I covered enough to peek your interest enough to do further study. Thanks for reading.

Hello everyone, I thought I would share some up coming events that may be significant. Some of you may be aware of the details. However, I have searched this subject on the net and have not found anything said about the timing of the events in relation to the exact time in Israel when the events take place. While I do have an opinion as to the meaning of all this I confess that at this time it is mere speculation and I do not wish to add to the piles of speculation already out there. Therefore, I make no claim as to its meaning, that I leave to the reader to prayerfully form his/her own opinion. I am a firm believer that prophecy is best understood in retrospect.

In the year 2014 and 15 there will be what is called a Tetrad. A Tetrad is 4 consecutive total lunar eclipses (TLE, also called a Blood Moon). Starting on April 15th 2014 the first TLE takes place followed by a TLE on Oct 8th. Then in 2015 it is repeated on April 4th and again on Sept 28th.

Please bring up this link in a separate browser as we will be referring to it later.

Before we look at the dates, I need to set the stage in reference to signs in the celestial and their intended purpose. Remember the star of Bethlehem. God used a celestial object as a sign and to guide the wise men to Christ.

In Genesis 1:14 we read:
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

And the Psalmist wrote:

Ps 104:19
19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

Jesus also said in:

Luke 21:25

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

The Hebrew word for sign is:

'owth (oth); probably from OT:225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.:

And the Hebrew word for seasons is;

mowed` (mo-ade'); or moed` (mo-ade'); or (feminine) mow` adah (2 Chron 8:13) (mo-aw-daw'); from OT:3259; properly, an appointment, i.e. a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand):

So we see that the word sign is a signal and seasons is a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival

A word about Jewish feast days (festivals) In Lev 23 the Lord set up seven feast days to be observed. They are:

1. Passover on the 14th day of the first month (Pesach)
2. Feast of unleavened bread on the 15th
3. Day of Firstfruits on the 16th
4. Pentecost (Shavuot "Feast of weeks")
5. Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah)
6. Atonement (Yom Kippur)
7. Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot - Booths)

The first 4 are call the Spring Feast and it is interesting that each feast had a significant event happen on the exact day.

1. Passover = Jesus was crucified
2. Feast of Unleavened Bread = Jesus body lay undefiled in the grave.
3. Day of Firstfruits = Jesus rose from the dead and became the first born.
4. Pentecost = the church was born.

Each day had a literal fulfillment. There are now three feast days left which are called the Fall Feast, will they too have a literal fulfillment of an actual event?

Now on to the Tetrad

Here is another link. Please bring it up in yet another separate browser.

If you will look at the NASA browser you will see the first TLE is on April 15th

Now look at the hebcal link and find the column 2013-14. go down the column until you April 14-15 and notice it falls on Pesach or the day of Passover. The day Jesus was crucified This is the first of the feast days.

Next on the NASA browser find the next TLE and notice it falls on Oct 8th. Now find Oct 9th on the hebcal browser and you will see it falls on the Feast of Tabernacles.

Here you might say that is close but not quite a match. Not quite, in Israel a day is from sundown to sundown. Oct 9th in Israel starts on the 8th at sundown. NASA doesnt keep the same time.

So what do we have? In the year 2014 there will be two TLE which happen to fall on Passover (first feast) and the Feast of Tabernacles (the last feast) If you look at 2015 you will find exactly the same thing even though the dates will be different. Coincidence?

Now one might ask if Tetrads have happened before. The answer is yes. If memory serves me right approximately 4% of all lunar eclipses are Tetrads. But few fall on Jewish feast days and when they do something happens. For example, last century there were five Tetrads. Two of which had the eclipse fall on or near feast days. They were 1949-50 and 1967-68. Perhaps the birth of Israel and the Israeli Arab conflict? Going back in time the next Tetrad falling on or near a feast day is during the Spanish inquisition where the Jews were expelled from Spain.

When I first heard about this I was amazed. After I thought about it though I felt if the Lord was really in this and saying something He would be précised. So I began to look at the exact times involved. For this I focused on just the Passover blood moons to steal Joels term.

If you look at the NASA browser again notice the time that the blood moon occurs in 2014.

The time of DT (Dynamical Time) of greatest eclipse (DTGE) is 07:46:48 and the duration of the eclipse is 3 hours 35 minutes. .

Seeing how Israel is Gods time clock I felt it necessary to calculate these events per Israeli time. Because Israel is East of the Greenwich Meridian it is necessary to add the number of hours she is ahead of GMT or UTC to the TD of greatest eclipse time. (As a note, I will tell you that there is a difference between TDGE and GMT or UTC, but the amount is in milliseconds/seconds).

Israel is 2 hours ahead of UTC, however in 2005 Israel started to have daylight savings time start uniformly on the last Friday before April 2nd which will put the time 3 hours ahead. This makes the TD of greatest eclipse at 10:46:48 AM.

I then wondered what time it would be when the eclipse starts. So taking the total duration of 3 hr 35 minute and halving it (TDGE is at the midway point) and subtracting it from the TDGE I got this

3 hrs 35 minutes = 215 minutes
215/2 = 107.5 minutes
107.5/60 = 1.79 hrs
1.79 hrs = 1 hr 47.4 minutes

10:46:48 rounded is 10:47am minus 1 hr 47 minutes = 09:00 AM

The time in Jerusalem when the 2014 blood moon starts will be 09:00 AM. The time the crucifiction started (when Jesus was placed on the cross) was the third hour (9:00 AM)

Mark 15:25
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

On April 4th 2015 the TD of greatest eclipse, a time when the blood moon will appear the bloodiest will be 12:01 PM. Adding 3 hours (remember DLST starts on the last Friday before April 2nd) it will be 3:00 PM.

It was the ninth hour (3:00 PM) when Jesus our Lord said it is finished and gave up the ghost.

Do you ever wonder why God recorded the exact time our Lord was crucified and the exact time he died?

Could it be for those who will see the 2014 &15 blood moons? Or even for those of us who now know it will happen?

Come quickly Lord Jesus

Interesting! Until that day, I will do all I can to bring others to know our Lord, Savior, and King, Jesus Christ. God gave us all a 'Free Will' but some will choose to be lost! Jesus clearly stated that those who love this world more than they love Him will not see heaven.

Thank you Bro Dave for letting me know about the Tetrad....I have heard about some of this prophecy, as I have watched the Prophecy Program, but don't always, so I like to know what they are speaking about! I didn't know the word Tetrad, but may have heard it in the past! I really like to listen to prophecy as I have studied the Book of Revelation, along with Isaiah and Daniel and etc. Been a while since I've studied and I did for 20 years, but I still like to read and hear more! I have always believed that the dates and times in the Bible have significant meanings and truly believe that the Tetrad has great meaning for each of us, if we will just study and open our minds to God's Word! Jesus said no man knows the day or the hour but God when His returning will be, but we can know by the signs of the times....and the Tetrad shows the signs of the times! Praise God and Thank you, Jesus, and God's Holy Spirit for drawing us to Him, as we who are saved by accepting His Holy Word by faith! They who search and seek will find the truth and the Bible is the absolute truth, as we are guided and let into all truth by God's Holy Spirit! Amen! Thank you again, as this is very informative! May God Bless you, your ministry and your family and may more souls be saved before Jesus comes to get God's satints and takes us Home and into His beautiful, golden city! Amen! :angel: Ma Betty
