Exciting views of the extremely rare lunar eclipse tetrad will be visible in the U.S. over Passover and the Easter weekend...making it more rare still, is that it will be a 'Blood Moon', as well.

What adds to the intrigue of this unusual occurrence for biblical scholars and many religious folks, is that scripture gives an eerie description of an event such as this, signalling historic change is coming soon. The fact that this is occurring with Passover and Easter only heightens, to many, the significance of this extremely rare occurrence.


“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes,” (Joel 2:31)




Blood Moon With Total Lunar Eclipse & Eerie Biblical Message Rising Over U.S. Easter Weekend

CBS SF) — Get ready to feast your eyes on an extra special and rare total lunar eclipse Saturday morning that has some Christians worried this Easter weekend.
For the third time in less than a year, the moon will dip into Earth’s shadow, turning its bright white globe a deep coppery red in a matter of minutes.

The action begins at 3:16 a.m. PST on the morning of April 4 when the edge of the moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.
For the next hour and 45 minutes, Earth’s shadow will move across the lunar disk, ultimately covering the entire moon at 4:58 a.m. PST.

The total phase of the lunar eclipse will only last about 5 minutes, making it the shortest lunar eclipse of the century on the morning of Easter Vigil, traditionally observed as the period between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. The eclipse also falls within the first night of Passover, observed by Jews worldwide beginning Friday at sunset.

Lunar eclipses usually come in no particular order, but sometimes the sequence is more orderly. When four lunar eclipses are all total, the series is called a tetrad.

This Saturday will be the third of four total eclipses in the 18-month long tetrad series. Previous eclipses occurred on April 15, 2014 and. Oct. 8, 2014. After Saturday, the next one is expected on Sept. 28, 2015. Such a closely-spaced succession of eclipses is a fairly rare occurrence.


Some Christians believe the blood moon lunar eclipse tetrad could be connected to Jesus’ return — or signify a world-changing event about to take place.
According to the King James Bible, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes,” (Joel 2:31).


Regardless of your religious beliefs, it will be a breathtaking spectacle you’ll want to wake up early to see. Just make sure to be outside no later than 4:58 a.m. PST to watch the transition.

So we got a bunch of doom porn for the first eclipse of the year and now you are posting one for the first lunar eclipse. Are we just going to see doom porn for every eclipse this year? What is so terrifying about eclipses anyways?

I don't know how anyone who reads widely can't already know about both the astronomical/astrological event and the significance it holds for Christians and Jews.

When this has happened in the past, every time it happened in the past. Great historical changes took place shortly thereafter.

So you don't even have to be a Christian or Jew,
you can be someone who thinks there is something to
astrology.

It is possible that it is coincidence that great historically significant events took place after one of these, but it is interesting for those of you who don't know about it to learn something.




1. The first of the seven tetrads occurred on Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles in 162 and 163 A.D., which happened during one of the worst persecutions of Jews and Christians that began in 161 by Marcus Aurelius, emperor of Rome. ...

2. The second occurred on Passover and the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) in 795 and 796. Pope Leo III was crowned Pope on Christmas day, 795. He was attacked and injured by his enemies in 799, then he fled to Charlemagne for protection. In 800 he and Charlemagne returned to Rome where the Pope was put on trial, but Charlemagne was able to get him acquitted of charges. The Pope then crowned Charlemagne the first Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, which lasted over 1,000 years. ...

3. Another tetrad occurred on Passover and Day of Atonement in 842 and 843 A.D. ...In Europe, Muslims had been attacking Sicily for several years as they attempted to conquer Italy and Europe, and this continued as they attacked and captured Messina in Sicily in 842. In 843 the Treaty of Verdun divided the Holy Roman Empire into three parts. This affected Jews adversely because the French were tolerant of Jews, but when the French no longer had power over most of Europe, then anti-Jewish feelings were allowed to manifest, leading to persecution of the Jews.

4. A tetrad of eclipses occurred on Passover and the Day of Atonement in 860 and 861 A.D. Important things happened in these years as well. In 861 the first Russians, sailing in 200 ships, attacked Constantinople ... Also in 861 Muhammed al-Mudabbir arrived in Egypt and tripled the jizya (tax) on Christians and Jews. Because so many could not pay the tax, they filled the prisons. The churches were looted and confiscated, and the Coptic patriarch, “unable to pay the taxes demanded from the Coptic episcopate, fled from place to place and went into hiding”

5. A tetrad occurred on Passover and the Feast of Trumpets in 1493 and 1494. In 1492 King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain ordered the expulsion of all Jews from Spain, about 200,000. ...

6. The sixth tetrad occurred on Passover and Tabernacles in 1949 and 1950, just after the creation of the Jewish state of Israel in 1948 and the 1st Arab - Israeli War for Independence (May 15, 1948 – March 10, 1949).

7. The seventh tetrad since the time of Christ occurred on Passover and Tabernacles in 1967 and 1968, with the 6-Day War taking place in June of 1967 when Israel captured all of Jerusalem and additional land.

8. The next tetrad will occur on Passover and Tabernacles (Sukkot) in 2014 and 2015. ...

As a strange aside: I saw my first and only blood moon (not a tetrad) but a blood moon, the night my father died.

Great, historical things happen every year, throughout the year. It is easy to place significance on this event by highlighting a few things throughout history that happened around said event.


So you don't even have to be a Christian or Jew,
you can be someone who thinks there is something to
astrology.


No, I'm pretty sure you have to be a Christian or Jew to believe Christian or Jewish prophecy. Though astrology is also suspect.

Religion is all about placing undo importance on coincidences and unlikely events.

Thanks for the info Iamtat. I am a little fascinated by astronomical events and was unaware of this coming up until I read your post.

Although science can explain why the moon turns that orangey-red color, it's still a little freaky to see. Can you imagine people 100 years ago and what they most have thought? Its no wonder there's doom porn surrounding it.

All you did was rephrase what I said about it could be coincidence.

It could just be coincidence because historical events do happen all the time.

Why get upset at what I said, and then rephrase exactly the same sentiment?

Just because it may be coincidence doesn't make a great and rare astrological event like this any less interesting.

I am aware of the publicity certain preachers have gotten because of this tetrad doom prediction which I'd not heard about before. My interest was piqued. It is easy to find dots to connect to these days; however my attention lies in seeing if anything really unusual will happen other than the usual MEast escalation and world skirmishes. We shall see what we shall see therefore.

It's not rare. Total lunar eclipses happen every year.

Lunar Eclipses for Beginners


During the five thousand year period from 2000 BCE through 3000 CE, there are 7,718 eclipses of the Moon (partial and total). This averages out to about one and a half eclipses each year. Actually, the number of lunar eclipses in a single year can range from 0 to 3. The last time that 3 total lunar eclipses occurred in one calendar year was in 1982. Partial eclipses slightly outnumber total eclipses by 7 to 6.

Most probably not.

However on any given day thousands of us do die.

If you mean will something awful of a huge magnitude happen?
Most probably yes, they happen regularly, annually, be it natural or man caused.


I think of the article I read a few days ago - www.nydailynews.com...
A Russian high up in the government was suggesting that the Russians should nuke Yellowstone,
which would cause a huge eruption and wipe out the entire US

(of course he wasn't thinking, it would also wipe out 90% of life on earth due to nuclear and ash caused winter for years)

Or now that Iran is allowed to keep the basic building components of a nuclear bomb, and they have avowed to wipe Isreal off the map. well. (I won't link to that, there have been too many threads and news articles on that for anyone here not to know about).

Who knows? At any moment, tetrad or not, the entire world could go, or not.

Doom porn with natural events on specific dates provides for enjoyable speculation. As usual, nothing out of the ordinary will happen. Same old political corruption, man's inhumane treatment of his fellow man via crime, terrorism, war, etc. will still happen. A billion years from now people will still ponder if a meteor, EQ, eclipse, et al, will spell doom for mankind or portend the "return" of a God who never existed in the first place. But most people's lives are so boring and mundane they yearn for an upcoming event which will be transformative. This rock will still be around for five or six billion more years until the sun decides to burn out.

I gotta say, my kids are really beginning to smell a rat here.
Every time I tell them that we are all going to die on each new doom porn date and then nothing happens....
They are getting to the point where they don't believe it any more!
