The Blood Moon, or Lunar Eclipse, which will happen on the night of April 14-15 is drawing much attention to the Star Bible and the signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars (See our Blog of January 8, 2014 “Blood Moons”).
During a Lunar Eclipse the Moon turns red as the sunlight is reflected through the Earth’s atmosphere. It is as if the Moon, called the “Faithful Witness in the Sky” (Ps 89:37) and representing the believers, was covered in the Blood of Christ. Thus, the Lunar Eclipse is a picture of
God’s grace and mercy extended to believers.
To illustrate this grace aspect, there are two outstanding Lunar Eclipses which we can point to in Biblical times. The first occurred on the night of the First Passover in Egypt in 1446 BC, when the Blood covering kept out the Angel of Death. The second occurred on Passover night of 5 BC, when the Star of Bethlehem appeared and our research indicates that Christ was born. These Blood Moons happened as God was pouring out His grace and mercy on His people.
In the modern era, Pastor John Hagee’s book “Four Blood Moons” has identified groupings of Four Blood Moons on Jewish Feast days in 1493-94, 1949-50, and 1967-68. History tells us that the Evangelization of the New World began when Christopher Columbus set sail back to the Americas during a Blood Moon on the Feast of Tabernacles in 1493. It was during a Blood Moon on the Feast of Tabernacles in 1949 that Billy Graham became a household name, launching a revival in conjunction with the healing revival of those years. The Blood Moon year 1967 saw the start of the great Charismatic Revival, which has produced 600 million believers, and also the beginning of the Messianic Jewish movement which many believe is preparing the way for Christ’s Return.
Looking forward to the Blood Moons of 2014-15, we can join Pastor Hagee in his expectation that God will do something historic. In fact, we have already seen a historic reconciliation event in Pope Francis’s video of blessing sent to his Protestant brothers (See the United-In-Christ website). Since Church unity is cause for the world to believe our message (See John 17:23), we can hope that the Lord will pour out His Spirit in revival during this time.
Tonight look to the East around 10:00 for the constellation Virgo (The Virgin), where the Lunar Eclipse will occur next week. Note that the red Planet Mars, also signifying the Blood of Jesus, is already there.
Get ready for something special to happen.
