Blood Moon Deception
April 14, 2014
The first so-called “Blood Moon” is almost here. It will begin tonight after midnight, April 15, about 1:00AM CDT.
As an interesting sidenote, Mars, the red planet, was at its closest and brightest position to Earth for the year at 8AM CDT this morning.
Regarding the term “Blood Moon,” the terminology is not at all scientific, but relates to three Biblical verses relating to prophecy. The following are the only verses in the entire Bible in which the words blood and moon occur together:
The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. [Joel 2:31]
“THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.” [Acts 2:20]
I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; [Revelation 6:12] 
These passages seem to be pointing toward a total solar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse.
During a solar eclipse, the Moon passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, and blocks the Sun’s light upon the Earth. As a result the Sun appears as a black disc with an outer penumbra.
During a lunar eclipse, the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow upon the Moon and blocking the Sun’s light upon it. Due to the Earth’s atmosphere, the Moon is shaded in a light red color. Hence the term, “Blood Moon.”
Yet, these prophecies do not seem to portend the usual eclipses, which happen with much regularity. Also, since it is impossible for a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse to happen at the same time, the verses possibly denote the two total eclipses happening fairly close together.
However, when we add the Revelation account during the Sixth Seal to the verse from Joel, it is possible that these are not eclipses at all. It could be that the great earthquake, which could also involve great volcanic activity, causes the blackout of the Sun and dark red color of the Moon.
Regarding the lunar eclipse that will take place tonight, there has been much notoriety of their occurrences happening on Hebrew Feast Days (or close to them). There will be four of these “Blood Moons,” two this year and two in 2015. These four eclipses are known in scientific terms as lunar tetrads, and are not necessarily rare events, having taken place 54 times in the last 20 centuries, and will occur 8 more times this century.
Incidentally, no tetrads occurred during the Lord’s time on the planet, or during the entire first century AD.
Also, it must be noted that tonight’s lunar eclipse will not be seen in Israel, nor will any of the four eclipses be seen is Israel. This makes any prophetic connection to Israel highly unlikely. It must also be pointed out that The Hebrew Feast dates in question always fall on full moons. Therefore, it is inevitable that some lunar eclipses will take place on these dates.
The reason I say this is because many people are teaching that these lunar eclipses portend something special regarding the nation of Israel.
But everyone must know that if it turns out that way, it will only be because Israel took advantage of the timing of these eclipses and the propaganda associated with them.
What Christians should be noting is not Israel, but America. These are American eclipses. They will each be seen here. What they actually portend may be something still completely off the radar of most Christians:
There is a national GREAT AWAKENING coming forth at this writing.
It would be good for Americans and American Christians in general to get their eyes off Israel for a few seconds and look at their own country. God has a rich history here and He is about to bring something forth that is very dramatic.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES, AS WE SEE THESE SIGNS IN THE SKY, AND CONTINUE TO SEEK THE LORD FOR AMERICA.
