The scheduled appearance of four total lunar eclipses on major Jewish holidays between the start of Passover 2014 and September 27, 2015 (the start of Sukkot) has the attention of much of the religious world.
Somewhat less common are tetrads – four consecutive total lunar eclipses with no intervening partial eclipses – which has occurred 62 times since the year 0 AD. A tetrad begins on Passover- a series of four total lunar eclipses that will occur over a period of about 18 months in 2014 and 2015 – each one on a Jewish festival day.
Seven times in the past 2,000 years, a tetrad has coincided perfectly with Passover and Sukkot. The last of those tetrads began just prior to the outbreak of the Six Day War in 1967. Two others (in 1493 and 1949) began more than a year after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and the State of Israel’s declaration of independence, respectively.
Pastor Mark Biltz, author of the book, "Blood Moons: Decoding of the Imminent, Heavenly Signs," explained to JewTube why Israel and the gentile nations ought pay attention to those attempting to remove holy land from Jewish guardianship (such as activists and politicians advocating a sovereign Muslim state in Palestine) surrounding these eclipses (particularly during the super-moon - which will be visible in Israel during Sukkot, 2015) which he writes could be indicators of war against Israel.
"These are patterns and historical facts that cannot be disregarded. The Jewish Talmud records that total lunar eclipses are indicators or omens for the nation of Israel.” See Blood Moons' special message to America in WND.com.
The eclipses are going to go almost totally unseen in Israel. Data published by NASA reveals that only the last of the four eclipses will be visible from the Middle East, and even the fourth will only be partially visible.
