Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night;

and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;" ~ Genesis 14




Lunar Tetrad ~ series of four blood moons 


A blood moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse when the earth is directly between the sun and the moon leaving the moon in earth's shadow. As light passes through Earth's atmosphere some light is bent toward the moon. The color red is able to make it through this spectrum while other colors are blocked thus making the moon appear reddish. There are many blood moon eclipses, however a series of four without a partial (Annular or Penumbral) eclipse is much more rare. Usually 1 in 3 lunar eclipses are total eclipses. They are six months apart with at least 6 full moons between them.

Four lunar blood moons along with the solar eclipses all occurred on Jewish holidays in 2014 and 2015! 

Apr 15, 2014: Pesach (Passover)

Oct 08, 2014: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)

Apr 04, 2015: Pesach (Passover)
Sep 28, 2015: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles) This was also a Super Moon meaning it came as close as it could get to the earth in it's elliptical rotation around the earth, so it appeared larger than most full moons.

September 13, '15: Elul 29.

   Last day of the Shemitah year




Remarkably, in the past 521 years there have been three additional Tetrads that have occurred not only when something monumental was happening to the Jewish people, but also literally landed on Jewish holidays. 

1967 ~ The Six-Day War; June 5 - 10 ~ Israel's neighbors declared war.  With little preparation and limited military defense, Israel was forced to fight against Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Sudan simultaneously.  Though with the help of God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Israel was able to overcome the battles on all fronts.  They captured east Jerusalem and the Temple Mount that was previously held by Jordan.  Additionally, Israel nearly tripled in size with the amount of land they were able to take as they went after their enemies.  And though they were defending themselves, Israel graciously ceded back most of the land taken.  It was clear that God gave Israel victory.

Tetrad surrounding the Six-Day War:

Apr 24, 1967: Pesach (Passover)

Oct 18, 1967: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)

Apr 13, 1968: Pesach (Passover)
Oct 06, 1968: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)



~ 1948 ~ The War of Independence ~ Jews who survived the horrors of the Holocaust were re-established in their Biblical homeland and the nation of Israel re-born after having been disbursed throughout the world since AD70. This is a fulfillment of Ezekiel 37 and an unprecedented event that has never happened to any other nation at any time throughout history.  They returned with their faith, the Jewish holy Scriptures (Talmud and Tanakh) intact and traditions still strong. And because they had come from many lands, they spoke many languages; hence it was determined to re-establish their own Hebraic language that would help unify them as one people.


The Tetrad that followed:


April 14, 1949: Pesach (Passover)

Oct 7, 1949: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)

April 02, 1950: Pesach (Passover)

Sep 26, 1950: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)





~ 1492 ~ The Spanish Inquisition ~  King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella ordered expulsion of the Jews from Spain. The Jews lost not only their homes and their belongings, but many lost their lives as they were subsequently burn alive for refusing to convert to Catholicism.  Many Jews gave their children away to Christian families to ensure their survival.  We know that in that year Christopher Columbus discovered America which became a haven for many Jews from around the world.


The Tetrad that followed:


April 02, 1493: Pesach (Passover)

Sep 25, 1493: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)

Mar 22, 1494: Pesach (Passover)

Sep 15, 1494: Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles)
