The Lunar and Solar Eclipses of 2014 & 2015

There is another event looming on the horizon that may have some significance to the end times. In 2014 and 2015 there will be 4 blood moon total lunar eclipses all falling on feast days.

1. Passover, April 15, 2014
2. Tabernacles October 8, 2014
3. Passover, April 4, 2015
4. Tabernacles, September 28, 2015

What is significant about this? A tetrad of lunar eclipses on feast days has only occurred two times in the last 500 years; 1949/50, and 1967/68. During each of those tetrads of total eclipses Israel was at war.

Though Israel was declared an independent state sixty years ago in 1948, the war with its neighbors began after its first day and lasted for a year. Therefore, the first lunar eclipse of 1949 occurred during this war for the establishment of Israel. The next tetrad began on Passover 1967, which was just six weeks before the Six-Day-War. Therefore, these two significant wars of Israel were covered by each tetrad period.[1]

The next time there was a tetrad of eclipses on feast days was in 1493/4. In 1492 the Jews were kicked out of Spain. Is this upcoming tetrad a sign from God that something significant will occur in 2014/15 in regards to Israel? Will they be involved in another major war at that time, possibly even the end times war with the antichrist when Israel is surrounded by armies and has to flee into the wilderness?

And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. (Luke 21:20-21)

These are things to ponder and watch for. There is something else involving eclipses that is of significance around this time. There are five solar eclipses from 2008 to 2015 that align on significant dates.

1. Tamuz 29/Av 1: August 2, 2008 August 1, 2008 Total eclipse
2. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 21-22, 2009 July 22, 2009 Total eclipse
3. Tamuz 29/Av 1: July 11-12, 2010 July 11, 2010 Total eclipse
4. Adar 29/Nisan 1 (Beginning of the religious calendar): March 20-21, 2015 Total eclipse
5. Rosh Hashanah: September 14, 2015 September 13, 2015 Partial eclipse

Jewish tradition believes that lunar eclipses signal judgment for Israel and solar eclipses signal judgment for the nations. Are the three solar eclipses on Av 1 in 2008-10 an indication that a time of distress is to begin for the world? Think of what happened after August 2008—the beginning of the financial collapse. Are the three solar eclipses a sign that the 70th week will begin between the first and last eclipse? Also note that in 2015 you have 2 lunar and 2 solar eclipses all on significant days.

You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth all in 2015.[2]

What do all these celestial occurrences mean? Are they signs for us from God? If the 70th week does start in 2009 then 2014/15 would be after the antichrist has taken over the world and will be during the time when Jews and Christians will be persecuted. Are these eclipses a sign of the coming persecutions? It could also be the time frame of when the rapture could possibly occur. Are these eclipses related in some way to the rapture? We will have to wait and see. But if these conjectures are correct and these eclipses are signs of these end times events then these eclipses also point to the 70th week possibly starting in 2009.

  1. It will be 102 days before Babylon is destroyed when the blood moon happens.

  2. 2 Kings 1...captain and fifty plus captain and fifty=102=the real pentecost

  3. End of israel is coming near,and Your jewish anti-christ will be killed by the islamic jesus

    Islam will rule the whole world in less than twenty years

    1. Regardless of what we humans think God's Word is the supreme authority and God's Word tells us that Jesus will rule the world from Jerusalem for 1000 years. And those 1000 years may start in the near future.

  4. 1000 years-the millenium

  5. I will be the most surprised if this does not turn out to be very significant, but the Rapture of the church if it happens before the tribulation, doesn't occur in 2015. Tom Horn is at this moment right there with Jonathan Cahn as the most interesting persons to listen to. Eighteenth century clergy predicted this 2012 to 2016 time period. "Whoa", as Keeno Reaves would say. George Washington had a angelic visitation about the USA 2 plus centuries ago, regarding this time. God is in all these things? I think so. HE is still the Great Benefactor of those that love HIM and those whose ancestors used to love HIM. Jeremiah 3: 14

    1. When this has happened in the past Israel has been at war or persecuted and fleeing. I expect the same this time except it will be at the hands of the antichrist after he takes over the world. If 2017 is the year of the second Coming, the ac will take over the world this spring. The rapture will not happen until after the 6th seal is opened.

  6. What will be the religious significance of the Total Solar Eclipse in 2015? As per this site - http://www.solareclipse2015.org.uk

    1. traditionally solar eclipses are a sign of judgment upon the nations. That eclipse will be in the middle of the tetrad. It is hard to speculate on its significance but is a date that should be watched.

  7. Where do you get the idea of a 'rapture'?

  8. From God's Word. "Caught up" in latin was rapturim our word rapture.

    For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
    1Thes 4
