Endtime Promises in the Bible

Endtime Promises in the Bible …

Psalm 84:1-2–“How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

Hebrews 9:28–“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

From Jesus Himself: John 14:1-3–“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back to take you to be with me, that you may also be where I am.”

Zephaniah 2:2-3–“BEFORE the decree bring forth, BEFORE the day pass as the chaff, BEFORE the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, BEFORE the day of the LORD’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.”

Isaiah 26:19-21–“Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

1 Corinthians 15:51-52–“Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Job 14:12-15–“So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.”

Song of Solomon 2:8-13–“The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice. My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18–“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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Also from Jesus: Revelation 3:10–“Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will KEEP you FROM the HOUR of temptation, which shall come UPON ALL THE WORLD, to try them that DWELL UPON THE EARTH.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11–“God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”

2 Timothy 4:8–“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto ALL them also that LOVE His appearing.”

James 5:7-8–“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.”

Colossians 3:1-4–“If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are dead, and your LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD. When Christ, who is our life SHALL APPEAR [in the the Pre-Tribulation Rapture], then shall you also appear WITH HIM in glory.”

1 John 3:2-3–“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be LIKE HIM; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that has this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure.”

Titus 2:13–“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.”

Posted 4/22/13 – Return of Nimrod, American Matrix and The Babylonian Stargate by Paul McGuire … It is impossible to make sense of global and national current events without understanding that reality is more than what you experience in three dimensions. Therefore even the best analysis that leaves out information that is relevant, just because most people are conditioned to believe that it cannot exist, cannot be accurate, because it is excluding relevant data. … http://newswithviews.com/McGuire/paul169.htm

Note about above FB post via Sharon Moles … “RETURN OF NIMROD, AMERICAN MATRIX AND THE BABYLONIAN STARGATE.

Paul confirms what I’ve read from other authors upon this same topic. God is opening His Word and giving direct and specific guidance in THIS HOUR, because the time spoken of by the prophets is rapidly approaching. IT WILL NOT BE ANYTHING PRETTY. Make sure to be found under the sheltering wings of the Lord God Almighty.

ONE SNIPPET, QUOTE: “The inter-dimensional beings that were at the Tower of Babylon are now in America and other nations of the world. If you are tempted to dismiss this as complete science fiction, then consider the concept of Hyperspace. In his book Hyperspace Michio Kaku discusses the evidence for higher dimensions. Hyperspace is defined as the spatial dimensions beyond space and time known as three dimensional reality. Physicists have introduced the concept of ‘wormholes’ or tunnels between dimensions, or alternate universes and have theorized about time travel and access to both the past and the future.”

AND THIS, QUOTE: “What happened at the Tower of Babel is now happening in America and the world. The Tower of Babel was the world’s first one world government, one world economic system and one world religion. In Revelation Chapters 17 and 18 we clearly see the rise of both economic Babylon and spiritual Babylon.”

PAUL ADDS, QUOTE: “Beginning about four months before 2013 began; I began to experience what I can only describe as an intense sense of deep, spiritual, inner knowing regarding ominous events coming to America in 2013. To use accurate terminology, this spiritual knowing was produced by the work of the Holy Spirit in my life along with considerable research into economic, political, social and scientific trends. It also involved an extended study of the spiritual laws encoded into the Old and New Testament. The only way I can describe it is to say that it felt like carrying a very intense sense of urgency, almost like an electric charge, concerning our nation. The force of this charge carried me into the Presence of God on a deeper level to seek His face for answers.”

I PRAY THAT ALL OF US ARE AWAKE, AND LISTENING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT!

It’s Not Just the Mayans

I know 2012 has come and gone and nothing major happened that we know of, the world didn’t end or anything, but I just wanted to repost this from my old blog because it has some very interesting things connected to it. Maybe nothing that we could see happened, but maybe some things happened in the spiritual realm which we couldn’t see???

Maranatha, Kitty  <^.^>


2012 – It’s Not Just the Mayans
By Carl Worline

According to Mayan legend, the deity Itzamna brought the knowledge of many things, including their series of calendars with cycles of different lengths. This system of calendars date back to the 5th century BC. and it rivals the accuracy and sophistication of our modern calendars that are based on the most precise astronomical measurements and observations. According to the Mayans, we are living in the fourth cycle of time, which began on August 11, 3114 B.C. (Gregorian), and will end on the December 21, 2012 winter solstice, when the next cycle will begin. The ancient Mayans believed that reaching the end of a 5,125 year cycle was an occasion for a great celebration, much like our New Years Eve celebrations, but there is no evidence to believe that the Mayans thought there would be an apocalypse of biblical proportions on this date. Any such notion is a modern fabrication and has nothing to do with the end of the world. Of course, those who the Mayan believed inhabited the earth during the first three cycles are long since extinct. They also believed that their flying dragon god Kulkulkan is going to return at the end of 2012.

If that is all that there was to the basis of the 2012 apocalyptic phenomena, then I would be the first to join in the mocking laughter of others. However, there is a little more to it. In the last chapter of their book, Petrus Romanus, The Final Pope is Here, Thomas Horn and Chris Putnam point out:

· The Mayan calendar ends in 2012 with the return of their flying dragon god Kulkulkan.

· The Aztec calendar ends in 2012 and their flying dragon god Quetzalcoatl returns.

· The Cherokee Indian calendar ends in the year 2012 and their flying rattlesnake god returns. The “Cherokee Rattlesnake Prophecies,” also known as the “Chickamaugan Prophecy” or the “Cherokee Star Constellation Prophecies,” are part of a series of apocalyptic prophecies made by members of the Cherokee tribe during 1811-1812. Like the Maya, the Cherokee calendar ends mysteriously in the year 2012 when astronomical phenomena related to Jupiter, Venus, Orion, and Pleiades cause the “powers” of the star systems to “awaken.”

· According to ancient Mayan inscriptions, in 2012 the Mayan underworld god Bolon Yokte Ku also returns.

· The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar ends in the year 2012 at the conclusion of the age of “the male demon.”

· According to the book, Apollyon Rising 2012, the prophecy of the Cumaean Sibyl on the Great Seal of the United States (novus ordo seclorum) points to the coming of the Antichrist in 2012.

· Over two hundred sixty years ago, the leader of the first Great Awakening in America, Jonathan Edwards, tied the arrival of the Antichrist and Great Tribulation period to the timeframe 2012.

· One hundred thirty years after that, in 1878, Reverend William J. Reid did the same, writing in his “Lectures on the Revelation” concerning the Papal system: “. . . we are prepared to answer the question, When will the Papal system come to an end? [It] will be destroyed in the year 2012.”

· Also of interest is the Web Bot Project, which was developed in the late 1990s for tracking and making stock predictions. This technology crawls the Internet, much like a search engine does, searching for keywords and following “chatter” in order to tap into “the collective unconscious” of the global community for tipping points regarding past, current, and future buying patterns. In 2001, operators began noticing what looked like more than coincidences, and that the “bot” was taking on a mind of its own, accurately predicting more than just stock market predictions, including June of 2001 when the program predicted than a life-altering event would be felt worldwide and would take place within sixty to ninety days. On September 11, 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center fell. The Web Bot also predicted the 2001 anthrax attack on Washington DC; the earthquake that produced the December 26, 2004, tsunami; Hurricane Katrina; and more. The Web Bot has now foretold global devastation for late December 2012.

· In 2012, the United States will elect a President.

· In 2012, the United Nations will get a new leader.

· And in 2012, Petrus Romanus is predicted to arrive during a Final Conclave. (pp 483-485)

The Prophecy of the Popes was written by the bishop of Armagh, Saint Malachy, in 1139 AD, when he was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While he was in Rome, Saint Malachy had a vision in which all future popes were revealed to him. He wrote down Latin phrases which described all of the 112 future popes. Our current pope, Benedict XVI, is number 111 on the list. Malachy has been incredibly accurate so far. If he continues to be this accurate, Benedict XVI will be replaced by the final pope, Petrus Romanus (Peter of Rome) in 2012, and Rome will be destroyed sometime shortly after that. As a possible note to his credibility, Malachy was attributed to several miracles, and was the first Irish saint to be canonized by a pope.

I need to point out that some see the final pope as a possible candidate for the Antichrist, and others see the final pope as a candidate for the false prophet. Only time will reveal, which (if either) of these predictions are true.

The Zohar is a medieval Aramaic collection of books written over 700 years ago and are a part of the Jewish Kabbalah, which contain commentary on the Pentateuch (the five books of Moses, also known as the Torah). Authors Horn and Putnam note in Petrus Romanus: In addition to interpreting Scripture, the “Vaera” section (volume 3, section 34) includes “The signs heralding Mashiach,” or “The coming of the Messiah.” The fascinating date for “his” appearance is set in the Zohar in late 2012! Given the rejection of Jesus by orthodox Jews as Messiah, Christians understand this “coming” would herald the unveiling of Antichrist in 2012. (p. 482)

Much has been said about various astronomical alignments, as well as speculation about a possible magnetic pole reversal (The north magnetic pole has increased the speed of its traveling to approximately 40 miles per year, and is accelerating). Authors Horn and Putnam also noted in Petrus Romanus :

The exact date of this [Mayan] calendar is December 21, 2012, when during the winter solstice at 11:11, GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), the New Age crowd says the sun will align with the galactic center of the Milky Way galaxy, an event that occurs only every thirteen thousand years. This precession of the equinoxes will conclude a twenty-six-thousand-year cycle, bringing the astrological Age of Pisces to an end and introducing the beginning of Aquarius, when the next cycle begins and the sun rises out of the mouth of the Ouroboros (great serpent of the Milky Way). (pp. 451-452)

As we can see, there is a lot more to the 2012 apocalyptic phenomenon than just the arbitrary ending date of the Mayan long count calendar. This, in itself, is more than enough to encourage those of us who believe that we are, indeed, in the “season” of the end of the Age of Grace and the rapture of the Church. We should not be discouraged because the last of the Jewish feast in 2012 has now passed and nothing has happened. After all, nobody told us that we would be able to guess the “day or the hour.”

Even more encouraging, there are signs out there that may not specifically mention the year 2012, but are nevertheless shouting at us that we are not only in the last days, but that we are, in fact, in the “last” of the “last days.” There has certainly been a huge up-tic in the frequency and intensity of signs in nature, such as earthquakes, volcanoes coming back to life, wildfires, floods, droughts, mass animal die-offs, strange sounds all over the planet we cannot explain, plagues, epidemics of all manner of diseases, record high temperatures, record low temperatures, record size hailstones, storms of such violence that we cannot remember the likes of, landslides, hurricanes, and typhoons. We have seen an incredible number of signs in the heavens. There have been a huge number of solar storms as well as solar and lunar eclipses, and blood moons, many of which have frequently occurred on prophetically significant Jewish feast days. We have seen the movements of the planets through the constellations that many feel portend apocalyptic significance. We have also seen the apocalyptic trifecta Japan experienced with Fukushima’s earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown of three of their atomic reactors.

Israel was back in the land a generation ago. The worldwide economy is teetering on the brink of collapse in the greatest Ponzi scheme of all time. Political unrest can be found in every corner of our world as the people cry out for a leader to take them out of our economic morass. Morality has run rampant, with many calling good evil while calling evil good, and those who openly practice perversion demand to be recognized as a privileged class. There is a worldwide push to authorize every possible immoral lifestyle. Children are openly and legally slaughtered in their mother’s womb literally by the millions. Other evil acts that are so heinous as to be unmentionable (as well as unthinkable) are now commonplace. Many Christians and church doctrines have departed from the faith. There has been a huge increase in blasphemy. Idolatry in all its forms has become acceptable. False christs and false prophets are everywhere, actively deceiving the very elect. Christians and Jews are hated for their faith and are being hunted down and slaughtered in many places throughout the world. Humanity has become increasingly materialistic and lovers of pleasure, bringing worldwide despair instead of happiness or contentment. Tiny, little, insignificant Jerusalem has become the point of contention that the entire planet is ready to go to war over. Israel became a nation in a single day and is once again speaking Hebrew (just as prophesied). RFID chips now make the prophesied mark of the beast a technological reality. The armies of the Middle East and aligned exactly as predicted by Asaph In Psalm 38 over 3,000 years ago, and by Ezekiel over 2500 years ago, as recorded in Ezekiel 83. Food is becoming increasingly scarce as the food supply is being attacked on every front. Fresh drinking water is also becoming increasingly scarce.

The Book of Acts (chapter 2) and the Book of Joel (also chapter 2) tells us that in the last days young men will see visions and old men will dream dreams. There certainly seems to have been a significant increase in dreams and visions in recent years. Of course, not all prophetic visions and dreams are from God, but scripture tells us that many are legitimate. One thing that I have noticed as of late is the building crescendo of urgency that time has run out, the door is just now slamming shut, and that both the rapture and the “sudden destruction” mentioned in the Bible is imminently imminent.

Based on all of this, I believe the question we should be asking is not if the rapture and sudden destruction will happen before the end of 2012. I believe the question should be how the rapture and sudden destruction could possibly delay until the end of 2012. Either way, something big is about to happen, and it is going to happen really soon. It’s not just the Mayans. The earth and everything in it is screaming at humanity to get ready. That something is the rapture of the Church and the sudden destruction that will kick off a period of incredible tribulation such as mankind had never seen before. This deafening “screaming” has become so loud, and has been going on for so long, that we have become numb from it. It is coming at us from every conceivable direction. How much longer can it, or will it, continue? Are you ready???

Remember the St. Malachy prophecies about the last Pope (Petrus Romanus) are NOT in the Bible, but do have an uncanny accuracy and are very interesting to ponder.

Signs in the Heavens – God’s Daytimer

Signs in the Heavens – God’s Day Timer
http://www.youtube.com/user/AndreHendricks


Signs in the Sun and Moon; 2010

The Sun will go into an eclipse and the moon will turn to blood. This world is facing earth-shattering events. The wicked have prospered and increased. They have become bold and blasphemous and the cup of sin is near to being full. Justice in the heart of our Heavenly Father allows the wicked to run their course, but then the hammer must fall. There is a strong sense in my heart that the hour of these events is at hand. I do not know that they will begin during this year of 2010, but I do know they are certain, and I believe it will be soon. The state of the Western churches is so utterly apostate that no spiritual renewal will occur until judgment begins.

God’s perfect Word has declared, “. . . for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness” (Isaiah 26:9). The blindness of the Western World to holy things and the arrogance about any possible judgment by God is a dark crisis. It cannot last. God will either act or His reputation is on the line. Please, do not question the fact that the great Sovereign God is preparing for His visitation. The Word of God has already spoken.

The Holy Ghost anointed Apostle Peter to speak of our day as he preached the “Pentecost Celebration” sermon. It is clear that Peter was addressing the entire church dispensation from that day to our day. If there is a chapter in the Bible that should be a clarion call to the church world, this is it. The church of Jesus Christ was inaugurated at Pentecost and the Holy Spirit did not fail to announce the closing hour.

Peter spoke very passionately of these last days concerning the kingdom of God on earth, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:17-21). He used a Greek word for “last-eschatos” and the meaning is “most remote,” “extreme,” or the “last of the last.” It is evident that we are there.

The things about to happen are going to shake this world to its very soul. Imagine about 1:30 on a sunny afternoon when the sun simply goes out, and our world turns dark as midnight. Nothing in natural science or nature will be identified as an ordinary cause. Those scientists that study the atmosphere are quickly brought into the newsroom, but they can only say, “This is unexpected, we have no answers.” Not only will the darkness startle people but the deep spiritual emotions that follow such an act by God will be even more troubling. The emotions that followed 9/11 will pale to compare. Animals will seek a hiding place, chickens will go to roost, and dogs will howl with dread.

This eclipse of the sun may well be followed by the moon turning blood red and trailing the sky with what appears to be a moon bath. The tint of blood will suddenly leave the entire heavenlies with an awe inspiring gloom. Wicked people will curse at the heavens and drown themselves in intoxicants. The Bible has promised that this coming judgment will be so overwhelming to the unprepared multitudes that, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:26).

Our present moon is the heavenly body that determines the tides of the oceans. When the moon starts to convulse the earthly water tables will follow suit. The Son of God told us this would occur, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring” (Luke 21:25). The East and West coasts of America will certainly experience tsunamis that will devastate entire major cities. We are talking about a time when the supreme powers of the heavens will no longer be a subject for jest and debate. Atheists will either curse and swear or turn to prayer. There will no longer be a middle ground between believers and unbelievers.

Apostle Peter spoke of things that will occur as almost impossible to understand in advance. An eclipse of the sun and the moon turning to blood is only part of what the Christian world may face as we await the Rapture. He spoke of “signs in the earth beneath, blood and fire and vapor of smoke.” We are speaking of indescribable events. Natural phenomena can cause some of this, but the world often explains them as the results of nature. I believe these will be so unexpected and unexplainable that the Sovereign God must be acknowledged.

The multitudes will finally refuse the lies of Bible critics and start giving glory to God. As soon as the moon turns to blood, millions will turn to God. When the Sun goes out or God covers it with His hand, and when the light comes back on, church altars will once again become the mourner’s bench.

The Holy Ghost speaking by Peter at Pentecost did not fail to give us the effect of these Heavenly manifestations. None of these actions will be wasted. God is going to prepare this universe for both revival and His final redemption. As He concluded this explanation of judgments, the Spirit said, “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

All of the above could happen either before or after the Rapture. The Apostle was speaking to the multitude in Jerusalem and to the church. This could well mean that this portion of judgment may occur at any moment. We are foolish if we do not live ready to go in the Rapture or ready to reap a harvest as our Lord shakes this world to its senses. I pray that He will send this shakening before He raptures His Church for the sake of the lost.

Blood Moon Tetrads – Lunar Eclipses

Above video posted by Ruby’s Table Talk – Blood Moon Over Jerusalem
http://www.youtube.com/user/RubysTableTalk

Sharon a Facebook friend posted the above video and the following information that is very interesting about a blood moon.

I find Ruby is saying similar things to what I’ve heard in interviews with Mark Biltz. I particularly liked the Biltz interview which included J.R. Church and Gary Stearman. (However, that took place in 2008, and the material, at that time, “seemed to suggest” that the Tribulation would be finished in 2015–which of course, with the passage of time, CANNOT be correct.) This is in reference to the blood moon TETRAD that will occur on the high holy days of Passover and Tabernacles in 2014 and 2015–and that timing is NOT seven years away at THIS CURRENT POINT on our calendars.

Here’s a brief synopsis (I took a few notes, but did not catch all the details):

Ruby says to watch Israel. I agree with that, because Israel is “God’s Timepiece”, and what happens with the Jews certainly points to facts of the Second Coming of Jesus. We are also to be aware of the YEAR’S of Israel’s GENERATION, because Jesus said “This generation shall NOT pass until ALL these THINGS be fulfilled.”

What things? All the events of the Tribulation, which is what Jesus talked about in the Olivet Discourse. What is a generation? Psalm 90:10 declares that the year’s of mankind are 70–and by reason of strength, 80. Seventy years from the REBIRTH of Israel in 1948 (which is the FIG TREE BUDDING) is complete in 2018. If by reason of strength, the years are 80, then the completion will occur in 2028. That is the WINDOW of time–Biblically–for when Jesus will return.

Ruby also said the blood moons (lunar eclipses) are a sign of SWORD and JUDGMENT for Israel. (Solar eclipses are a sign for the world at large.)

This information is according to Jewish Rabbinical customs. To Israel, the moon is KEY to their yearly cycles. The moon plays a prominent part in the determination of their high holy days. Rosh Hashanah is timed to the first appearance of the sliver of New Moon. Passover is tied to the Full Moon. Tabernacles is tied to the Full Moon. These are all Jewish facts.

Ruby mentions the Full Moon of June 15, 2011 (which happens today) and makes a statement concerning the colors of it. A full lunar eclipse turns the moon RED, and it may even shade to BLACK (perhaps in the crater’s shadows). RED symbolizes WAR. BLACK symbolizes FAMINE. We can say that is Biblical because the symbolism of the RED HORSE and the BLACK HORSE in Revelation show the same thing. (I’m NOT suggesting that the RED and BLACK HORSES ride out tonight. I use this ONLY to define the symbolism.)

Now, I’ll ADD this about tonight’s blood moon: We have the ADDITIONAL FACTOR of volcanic ash from Ubbi which is erupting in Eritrea. Ash is expected to fill the atmosphere above Israel tonight, and could make the RED be even REDDER than usual. Or it can darken the eclipse until the moon looks RUDDY BROWN, the color of DRIED BLOOD. Or the ash may be so thick that the moon shows MORE BLACK (or is NOT visible at all). If an ashy cloud is in the air, the moon may look RED even while NOT in eclipse. We’ll need to see what the reports say after this particular eclipse. (I say all this to SUGGEST that the DEEPER RED could portend a MORE SERIOUS event to occur in Israel, and any BLACK might SUGGEST famine, too.) This is, of course, according to TRADITIONAL interpretations. Remember that.

Ruby went on to describe the current cluster of eclipses. On June 1, there was that partial solar eclipse at midnight in the Arctic region. (If I heard correctly, Ruby mistakenly referred to this as “Antarctic”–which I say is just a slip-up on her part.) What COULD this mean, if anything? At MIDNIGHT? It sounds similar to a warning about the MIDNIGHT hour, when the Bridegroom could appear. So the MIDNIGHT HOUR “could” to refer to the coming of Jesus to Rapture His Church. Obviously, Jesus did NOT Rapture His Church on June 1. However, the sign (concerning the world, the Gentiles, in the partial solar eclipse) COULD be a forewarning that the Rapture is really close now. Matthew 25:6–“And at MIDNIGHT there was a CRY MADE, ‘Behold. the Bridegroom comes; go ye out to meet Him.'” To me, this SUGGESTS that the Rapture is much closer than many people suspect.

Ruby mentions occasions of other “blood moon” lunar eclipses that took place during Israel’s history. These seemed to forewarn of events like the destructions of the Jewish temple–and these eclipses occurred on Jewish high holy days, making them even more important. I did not capture all the dates and events that she cited. These can be researched, if one is willing to take the time.

Of particular note is the TETRADS of “blood moons” that occurred on Passover and Tabernacles in 1949 and 1950, and again–in 1967 and 1968. We can easily discern the important events in Israel that those eclipses pointed to. In 1949 and 1950, Israel fought their War of Independence, and was victorious in it. 1967 and 68 referred to Israel recapturing Jerusalem. Both those MAJOR events were KEY turning points in Israeli history–and they were bracketed by total lunar eclipses, which happened upon Jewish high holy days.

So what does today’s total lunar blood moon eclipse over Jerusalem portend? We can only watch and see. It might be that the prophesied WARS of Psalm 83/Isaiah 17 could occur. But that’s only speculation at this point.

Then we look ahead to 2014 and 2015, when AGAIN there will be a TETRAD of total lunar “blood moon” eclipses occurring upon the high holy days of Passover and Tabernacles. (It definitely WILL NOT BE the expected END of the Tribulation that was SUGGESTED by Mark Biltz, J.R. Church and Gary Stearman in 2008!) Any guesswork at the meaning of the 2014/2015 eclipses runs the same risk of being incorrect. However, I will SUGGEST “two” possibilities–(I’m NOT saying these things WILL happen–but it’s JUST A POSSIBILITY). First, the seven-year Tribulation COULD START in 2014/15. Second (IF the Rapture occurs soon and the Tribulation quickly begins), the total lunar blood moon eclipses of 2014/15 COULD INDICATE the MID-POINT of the Tribulation and the Abomination of Desolation. (While these are interesting conjectures, we must wait upon God to KNOW the FULL MEANING of these things.)

Lucile, I’d say this video is a good one to share–IF the PROBABLE explanations are INSERTED also.

I can say with CERTAINTY, however, that we are INDEED living in THE LAST PART of the END TIMES, just before the Rapture of the Church. And we MUST KEEP LOOKING UP, because our redemption is INDEED very near. ANY MOMENT–ANY DAY could be THE TIME when Jesus appears. LET US ALL BE READY!!!

If the SUGGESTED “probable” events (indicated by the eclipses) DO NOT occur, keep remembering that God intends them for His greater purposes. His reasons will be made clear in His own timing.

Let us NEVER grow weary in serving our Lord, and NEVER become discouraged as we LOOK FOR His appearance and our BLESSED HOPE. Because, yes, one of these days He will really APPEAR, and in a split second we will be with Him. Never allow that hope to grow dim…

In the comment above, I wrote: “I did not capture all the dates and events that Ruby cited. These can be researched, if one is willing to take the time.”

The article is entitled: “The coming Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses (known as blood moons)”

This is very interesting and fills in many of the blank spaces I left in my comment.

Here’s some of the info in the above link:

Terms you need to know before we continue.

Tetrad–When four consecutive lunar eclipses are all total eclipses, the group is known as a tetrad.

Saros Cycle–The Saros Cycle is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 65851/3 days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon. One cycle after and eclipse, the Sun, Earth, and Moon return to approximately the same relative geometry, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur west of the original location.

Nissan–The first month of the Jewish Religious Year which occurs in the spring time. Passover Occurs on the 15th day of this month.

Passover–The Hebrew feast day commemorating the Lamb Sacrifice in Exodus where the Angel of Death passed over Israel while the firstborn in Egypt were slain. It also is the same day the Lord Jesus Christ, our lamb sacrifice for sins, was crucified.

Tishri–Tishri is the seventh month of the religious year for Israel and the first month of the civil year for Israel. This month holds the feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles (also known as Sukkoth).

Rosh Hashanah–This is a two day feast occurring on Tishri 1 and Tishri 2 of the Hebrew calendar. This is also called the feast of trumpets. A lot of people believe this feast day is tied to the rapture of the Christian Church prior to the start of the tribulation.)

Yom Kippur–This is known as the day of atonement. It is considered to be one of the most important of Jewish Holidays of the year. It is a day set aside to atone for the sins of the past year. It occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. It is found in Leviticus 23:26-32.

Sukkoth (Tabernacles)–The feast of Sukkoth begins on Tishri 15, the fifth day of Yom Kippur. It is a joyous feast day while Yom Kippur is one of the most solemn of feast days. Sukkoth is a feast day with a festival atmosphere. It marks a season of rejoicing. Sukkoth means booths and refers to temporary dwelling places the Jews gather into during this holiday. Most Christian Scholars believe the feast of Sukkoth is the feast for the 2nd Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ when he returns with his saints on white horses at Armageddon.

Av–Av is the fifth month of the Hebrew Calendar. It is a time of mourning for the Jews. There are two festivals that are in Av. On the 9th and on the 15th. On the 9th of Av is Tisha B’av which is a sad day when Jews fast. It recalls the two temples being destroyed and commemorates other tragic events throughout Jewish History. The other festival which happens in Av is Tu B’av. This is a happy occasion in which couples traditionally get together to arrange their wedding.

The Tetrad of 1967 – 1968 Tied to the 6th day war where Israel took Jerusalem

April 24 1967–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
October 18, 1967–Sukkoth (Tabernacles)–Total Lunar Eclipse
April 13, 1968–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
October 6, 1968–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse

The Tetrad of 1949 through 1950 Tied to the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Declared May 14, 1948.

It should be noted here that even though Israel declared themselves a nation in 1948, The first permanent government takes office on Jan 25, 1949. Israel had a transitional government in 1948. In this way the tetrad can tie to the year 1949 for the first elected office of that year and the birth year still be 1948.

April 13, 1949–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
October 7, 1949–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse
April 2, 1950–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
September 26, 1950–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse

The Tetrad of 1493 through 1494 Tied to the repulsion of the Jews from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition.

April 2, 1493–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
September 25, 1493–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse
March 22, 1494–Passover–Total Lunar Eclipse
September 15, 1494–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse

The Solar Eclipses that match the Religious and Civil new year for Israel in 2015.

March 20, 2015–Nissan 1–Total Solar Eclipse
September 13, 2015–Sukkoth–Total Lunar Eclipse

The Solar Eclipses pattern of 2008, 2009 and 2010. We have a solar eclipse that occurs on the 1st of Av three years in a row.

August 1, 2008–Av 1–Total Solar Eclipse
July 22, 2009–Av 1–Total Solar Eclipse
July 11, 2010–Av 1–Total Solar Eclipse

The banking community started to go into collapse in the United States in August 2008. This has led to the almost total collapse of the world banking system. This event alone will set up the stage for a one world monitory system just in time for the soon arrival of the Antichrist. Note also that the Saros Cycles for the 3 AV eclipses increment by ten which is the number of the Gentiles. I do not believe this means we are in the tribulation. I do believe we will see things occur in succession throughout the Gentile world that will make way for the soon arrival of the Antichrist.

Putting everything into perspective.

The above does not mean that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ at Tabernacles has to occur on Tabernacles 2015. We already know that if you have a seven year tribulation the return year of 2015 is too soon. What the above taken as a whole does show a pattern. The first tetrad of 1493 is tied to the Spanish Government expelling the Jews. The second tetrad is the nation Israel being reborn. The third tetrad is the recapture of Jerusalem. The fourth will be tied to some major event dealing with Israel. One could speculate that the next major thing to take place for Israel is the restart of the daily sacrifices and the rebuilding of the temple. If that is the case one could see the following table.

First Tetrad of 1493-1494 Jewish Dispersion The Jews being scattered.

Second Tetrad of 1949-1950 Israel becoming a Nation again The start of the re-gathering of Israel

Third Tetrad of 1967-1968 6th Day War Israel gaining control of Jerusalem

Fourth Tetrad of 2014-2015 Major event dealing with Israel Could tie to the restart of the building of the temple and daily sacrifices.

Could be tied to the start of the tribulation
Could be tied to the abomination of Desolation
Could be tied to the last half of the tribulation

No one can say for sure.

The problem with putting events together to point to the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ does not necessarily make it so.

One can look at the pattern above and with the use of Scripture to see what is in the near future we know the following.

A seven year tribulation period is about to occur.

A Pre-Tribulation Rapture is close at hand.

The world is going through an economic upheaval which will make things ready for the Antichrist.

Israel became a nation in 1948 and going with the maximum 70 year generation we get 2018 when everything should come to pass. That makes the year 2011 as a good year for the rapture, and ONLY that is SPECULATION for we can NOT determine the years exactly for the phrase “this generation shall not pass away” found in the scriptures dealing with end times.

(Luke 21:32) Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

We know that the rapture is soon.

I believe that the tetrad of 2014 through 2015 will have something to do with Israel for the start, or middle of the tribulation period. The Jews require a sign. If it does line up with Israel fleeing into the wilderness, Israel will see the eclipses occurring on their feast days to show them that the time for their redemption is near.
