September 16 / September 17, 2016-Signs Of The Sun And Moon Before The Day Of The Lord


Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and themoon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Act 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and themoon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sunbecame black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

This is referring to solar and lunar eclipses, where the sun will turn dark, and the moon can turn a red color. Usually the eclipses of the sun and moon occur 2 weeks apart, and not on the same day.

I have gone to the NASA website to find the upcoming predicted solar and lunar eclipses, and picked those in which the sun will eclipse first, followed by the moon 2 weeks later. I did this because the scriptures mention the eclipses in this order. These are the dates which fit this sequence between 2008 and 2020.

The “type” in the chart is the type of eclipse expected, in case that can influence the appearance and color of the object.

Note: from another post about the Beijing Olympics, that the first one above occurs at the time of the 2008 Olympics.

From what the NASA website indicates, it seems like the total eclipse will yield the blood moon more than the other types.

So for this reason, I am giving the next chart, which gives all the eclipses grouped by year, and irregardless of whether the sun eclipses first or not. The tan color indicates eclipses in the same month. Total eclipses for the the sun are in blue and the total eclipses for the moon are in red.

Notice that there is a total eclipse of the sun, followed by a total eclipse of the moon 6 months later in 2012,and 1 and 6 months later in 2015. Is this part of the tribulation? The tribulation is 7 years of the wrath of God. Will it occur between 2012-2019?

If so, then the total eclipses of both sun and moon in 2010 will be the prophesied signs before the “great and terrible day of the Lord” which may begin in 2012.Will the 2010 total solar and lunar eclipses be mankind’s final warning?

This is just speculation, but if the Mayan calendar is right about time “stopping” in December 2012, then the total eclipse in November 2012 would be the warning sign right before this event, to signal the beginning of the Day of the Lord. Notice that the next set of eclipses would occur 7 years later, corresponding to prior to the end of the 7 year tribulation.

This is to also acknowledge that eclipses have always occurred, so one has to combine this data with other data that is also out there that agrees with prophecy.

I guess we will have to wait and see. But it would be good to be spiritually and physically prepared if any of this is correct.

This morning I received a video of a profound TV program by J.R. Church and Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News, whose scholarship I have always greatly respected. A guest on the program is Pastor Mark Biltz, whose teaching emphasis is Jewish roots and who has also extensively studied the dates of solar and lunar eclipsesfrom NASA and other astronomical resources, and how they line up precisely with Jewish feast days in the year 2015.

Watch this 30-minute program about the program. See what you think:


The year 2014-2015 on the Jewish calendar is a Jewishsabbatical year, as is 2008, which Mark Blitz thinks is prophetically significant. Here, I am not sure, since sabbaticals, for the most part, have happened every 7 years throughout Jewish history. But listen, and make up your own mind.

A “tetrad” is a rare series of four blood red moons. This will not only happen in 2014-2015, but it is a historical rarity that they will all be on significant Jewish feast days.(I agree, but remember scripture said the blood moon had to be accompanied by a dark sun.)

Pastor Biltz has discovered that the last time it happened was in 1967, the year of the miraculous Six-Day War when the Temple Mount was captured, and the one before that was just after Israel became a nation in 1948, all truly historical and prophetic years. This is extremely significant. Those two years, 1967 and 1948, are two of the most significant years in all of history.

In 2014-2015 there will be 4 lunar eclipses and 2 solar eclipses, all on Jewish holidays, including Rosh Hashanah in 2015! This will not happen again in this century.


Their speculation- but interesting:
They discussed that 2008 is also a sabbatical year, and that 2015 minus 7 years is 2008, and the possibility that the 7-year Tribulation will begin in the fall of 2008! In connection with this, they noted the ominous signs of imminent war in the Middle East, possibly nuclear.

If that is true, this means the rapture could literally be at the door! Be ready. Do not be caught asleep, or your lamps without oil. Be filled with the Spirit, and as Jesus exhorted, “Watch!”

Personal note from Marianne here: My idea was that the Ezechiel 38 war had to occur first. Once that happens, we can start looking at the sun and moon.

Again, wait and see, but be prepared.
