The Blood Moon Tetrads and Prophecy

The Bible is the Christians source for validation of any prophecy. Since Jesus Christ himself said, referring to the days before His second coming:

“And there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven”…..“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars . . .” Luke 21: 11, 25.

then what do we make of the soon coming blood moons?

There are specific references that focus on the moon turning “blood red” leading up to the Day of the Lord and for this reason the prophecy of the Blood Moon Tetrads is causing a storm brewing across the Christian community.

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD” Joel 2:31

“I look when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood” Revelation.6:12

Blood Moons happen when the moon looks very red, a distortion that occurs during lunar eclipses. They occur when the earth comes between the sun and the moon. The Earth’s shadow blocks the sun’s light, which normally reflects off the moon and causes the moon to appear red. This is in contrast to a solar eclipse where the moon comes between the earth and the sun causing darkness.


Blood Moon lunar eclipses have happened throughout history, but a Blood Moon Tetrad is when 4 total lunar eclipses occur without interuption on Jewish Holy Feast days. The first three feasts, Pesach, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits fall in March and April. The fourth one, Shavu’ot, marked the summer harvest and occurs in late May or early June. The last three feasts, Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Sukkot happen in September and October. Understanding the Feasts of the Lord is singularly one of the most critical components of bible prophecy. There have only been 7 Blood Moon Tetrads between Jesus Christ’s first coming and 2013, and every time they happened some significant event impacted the Jewish people within a year of the first or last eclipse of the tetrad.

The next time during this century that a Blood Moon Tetrad will take place is in the coming years of 2014-2015. Many people believe something significant is going to happen in 2014 and 2015 which will involve Israel and likely the rest of the world as a result. The Jewish rabbis teach that blood moons, “lunar eclipses” are a sign used by God for the judgment of the nation of Israel. They also teach that solar eclipses are a sign for the judgments of the nations of the world. Historically there is evidence that these occurrences always take place at a time where there are major world changing events. This has set off a storm of debate about this event, that is now being talked about on National Christian Radio broadcasts.  As the blood moons tetrad becomes more widely known by those in the Christian community, my hope is that more and more Christian will awake to the soon coming of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Many believe that the tribulation will begin during this time period and some believe the rapture will happen prior to that, but others believe the rapture will occur during or after the tribulation.  My belief is that we will likely be here on earth for at least part of the tribulation if not all of it as Revelation explains that many will be beheaded for the witness of Christ during the tribulation.  Other Christians outside of America are already seeing this type of tribulations, being both beheaded and crucified for their Christian beliefs and I don’t believe we are any better than they are.  Jesus clearly said in this world you will have tribulation.  Not maybe, but will have.  He also told us to watch and pray.  We must be ready for whatever happens.  God bless to all!

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and fourteen grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.

  1. There were 6 successful Apollo missions to the Moon over a period of 3 1/2 years (or 42 months if you prefer). The program was ironically named after the Greek god of light. 24 men visited the moon, and 12 men walked on the moon (also multiples of 6). See Wikipedia for a short history. The first landing on the moon occurred on 20 July 1969.
