You are confusing Christianity with religion, catholicism, it is not. As stated Christians are the true church. No religion involved with being christian, the opposite. Don't confuse us with catholic religion. Christians don't kill dude...
Well, Christ himself isn't coming back to earth until the earth has been pretty much torn apart between our actions and God's. The actual end of the Tribulation, the battle of Armageddon, only comes after seven very long and horribly years, and you're fooling yourself if you think we're even the smallest way into those. Things are bad, but they aren't that kind of bad. After all, we're told that if Christ doesn't come and put a stop to things, there would be nobody left alive on earth at all. That should tell you that we're nowhere near the end of the seven years of Tribulation.
Nope, if the Tetrad signifies anything, it may signal the beginning of the Trib, the beginning of the peace agreement (which is more of less the same thing), the building of the 3rd Temple, the Psalm 83 War, the Rapture (if there's going to be one( as there are two solar eclipses interspersed with the Tetrad, etc.
As to sinful people seeking signs, well, we were told what to look for to know that the end was near, and those conditions all seem to be met. It's evident that the world is increasingly hostile to people of good faith (I'm not just talking about Christian, but even good faith) and evil is called good and good is called evil. The general description of personal character is becoming the norm rather than the exception ...
It's not sign seeking. It's right there for anyone with the eyes to see.
The assumption of 7 years of tribulation is an assumption, your teachers incorrectly assumed the two 3 1/2 periods of time spoken of are in succession and lead up to the final day of Armageddon. This is incorrect.
There is a "time" of Jacobs (Ephraim and Manasseh) trouble, which is not 7 years.
The third temple is spiritual, the Body of Christ is the Temple of God (place where God chooses to dwell in); with each member a "living stone" fit jointly together in perfection. God's Church is the temple whose builder and maker is Jesus Christ. Looking to physical Israel for a physical third temple and physical abomination would be an effort in futility.
There is no rapture. There is a resurrection to eternal spiritual life for the 144,000 redeemed from the present age of mankind's self rule over the past 6000 years of human history, this event occurs on the final day of this age, the day of Armageddon which will be on a Pentecost.
There is also a large group of human beings that are brought to repentance during the "time of Jacob's trouble" because of the destruction around them, and they will be blessed to live on into the millennial reign of the Kingdom of God on Earth as subjects in the Kingdom ruled no longer by men, but by spirit beings perfected through Christ; there will be millions that fall into this awesome group.
All 7 seals have already been opened (they are spiritual).
The abomination that makes the Temple desolate has already occurred (Church of God Apostatize).
The man of sin has been revealed and died 40 Sabbaths to the hour after he destroyed the Temple (spiritually).
The 1335 day count for the sealing has already been completed.
The 1290 day count of the time of the 7th seal has already been completed.
The 1260 day final witness from God against mankind has already been completed.
All things are complete except the trumpets of God that sound in the day (year) of the Lord; which is the same time period as the "time" (year) of Jacob's trouble. These 7 trumpets bring about the end of all governments of mankind, and usher in the Kingdom of God on Earth.
All 7 trumpets will sound in a single "time" (year). The 7th trumpet will sound on a Pentecost. Therefore all 7 trumpets will sound from one years Pentecost leading up to another years Pentecost (between the two Pentecosts); the year of this occurring has not yet been revealed by God, and looking at these tetrad of blood moons surrounding Pentecost 2014 through Pentecost 2015 causes me to at least be very interested in how events transpire moving forward.
We are far closer to the end of this age then most can comprehend at this time. In time, God will make all these things known to all mankind. Death in this age is not the end, it is halftime.
Thy Kingdom come.

Blood Moons in Biblical prophecy. We’re not experts on prophecy of any kind. But we’ll tell you what we know about the new definition for Blood Moon that has raised so many questions recently.
From what we’ve been able to gather, two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee, use the term Blood Moon to apply to the full moons of the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons) – in 2014 and 2015. John Hagee appears to have popularized the term in his 2013 book Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change.
Mark Blitz and John Hagee speak of a lunar tetrad as representing a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. After all, the moon is supposed to turn blood red before the end times, isn’t it? As described in Joel 2:31 (Common English Bible):
The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.
That description, by the way, describes both a total solar eclipse and total lunar eclipse. Sun turned to darkness = moon directly between the Earth and sun in a total solar eclipse. Moon turned to blood = Earth directly between the sun and moon, Earth’s shadow falling on the moon in a total lunar eclipse.
Lunar phase on 15 April 2014 Tuesday is Full Moon.
The moon is in zodiac sign Libra.
For the rituals that require the most potent and powerful magick, the fullest phase of the moon is most appropriate.
