Excited that I might be able to finally witness a grand celestial sight, I awoke early this morning. The full moon shone clear and bright. The third blood moon of the Hebrew year was to make its appearance on the East Coast at 6:15 A.M. Unfortunately, my view was obliterated by clouds the wind blew in.
Blood moon tetrads--four total lunar eclipses--are a rare vision indeed. Not only that but the Scriptures tell us that God set the lights in the firmament for signs and for appointed times.
And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the shamayim [heavens] to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for moadim [appointed times], and for days, and years;
Genesis 1:14 Restoration Scriptures
The last series of four total lunar eclipses occurred in 1967--the year Israel recaptured Jerusalem. The tetrad before that? Well, it was in 1948--the year Israel became a nation. In 1492, during the Spanish Inquisition when the Jews were expelled from Spain on the 9th of Av, there was another tetrad of blood moons occurring on feast days. It was also the year Christopher Columbus, who was secretly a Jew, sailed to America.

What is the divine appointment for 2015?
Some believe this will be the year of the blood moon spoken of in Joel 2:31 and Revelation 6:12. Whatever the appointment is--it will be significant not only to God's people, but to the world.
