“Jesus said, Can you not discern the SIGNS of the times?” ~ Matthew 16:3
The longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the 21st Century occurs tonight, and the next Lunar Eclipse of such length will not appear in the skies again until 2123. It’s safe to say that most of us will not be around for the next one. So, that makes tonight’s rare occurrence in the heavens very significant for our generation.
Tonight’s Eclipse of the Moon will last for approximately 1 hour and 43 minutes, according to NASA. Experts say that the longest possible Lunar Eclipse is 1 hour and 47 minutes, so tonight’s event comes very close to that. This phenomenon is widely known, especially amongst Holy Bible believers, by another name: “BLOOD MOON”.
Unfortunately, this historic heavenly event will not be visible in the United States, but it is important to note that it will be visible from Israel. All Last Days’ Biblical Prophecy is connected to the Jewish State. So when God gives us prophecies of Blood Moons in the Holy Bible, He always means that they will be visible in His Chosen Nation. If they are not visible in His Holy Land, then they mean nothing prophetically.
Tonight’s longest Blood Moon of the 21st Century will also be visible in most of the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and parts of South America. In my new Book, The Signs of Our Times: 12 Biblical Reasons Why This Could Be The Generation of The Rapture, I devote an entire chapter to the many “Signs in the Heavens” which have been exclusive to our generation.
I explain how our generation has seen more heavenly signs than, quite possibly, any other generation since Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven nearly 2,000 years ago. It is undeniable that the LORD has certainly been trying to get the world’s attention. Tonight’s once-in-a-century Blood Moon event is just another example of that.
Between the years 2014-2018, we have observed an abundance of extremely rare and historic occurrences in the Sun, Moon, and our skies in general. It is my hope, that after reading my Book, you will find it very difficult to not be enthusiastic about the coming Rapture of the faithful.
During the years 2014-2015, we witnessed the very rare occurrence of a “Blood Moon Tetrad”. Four Blood Moons rose directly on Biblical Holy Days. Try to chalk that up to “coincidence.” Two years in a row, we witnessed 2 of them rise on the Feast of the Passover, while the other 2 occurred on the Feast of Tabernacles.
If 2 Blood Moons transpired during God’s Holy Days in just one year, that would be intriguing enough in itself. The fact that this happened two years in a row is highly unprecedented, and is beyond fascinating. That’s not all though… 2 of the 3 Blood Moons occurred in the Biblical “Shemitah Year”. The Shemitah Year only occurs once every 7 years.
Moreover, that particular Shemitah was known as a “Super Shemitah”, meaning that it was the 7th Shemitah in a cycle of seven! How can even the most hardened of Bible skeptics write off, as coincidence, the Blood Moons rising – not only on Biblical Feast Days – but during the all-important 7th Shemitah in a set of 7?
The Biblical Year which immediately followed the Super Shemitah was known as the “Jubilee Year”. The Jubilee only comes around once every 50 years! We saw the final Blood Moon of the Tetrad rise in the Jubilee Year of 2015. All of this is so extremely important, concerning the return of Jesus Christ, because it has all taken place in the generation which witnessed the rebirth of Israel.
None of the Last Days’ Signs given in the Holy Bible could mean anything until the Biblical Nation of Israel was reestablished. So while there have always been Blood Moons, Eclipses, and other signs in the heavens throughout history, they had nothing to do with Last Days’ Biblical Prophecy. As I explain the Book, the ones occurring in our generation have EVERYTHING to do with it.
In 2016, again on the Biblical Feast of Tabernacles, God ushered in His Holy Week with a sign in the heavens. A Supermoon rose. This celestial event occurs when the Moon makes its closest approach to earth. The Supermoon of 2016 came to its second nearest position to planet earth since 1948 (222,365 miles), behind only the Supermoon which would fall just a month later.
A night earlier, on the eve of the Biblical Feast, a “Super Blood Moon” also rose! Now, do you remember the significance of 1948? Keep it in mind as we go further, as it is beyond important prophetically. The second Supermoon of 2016 was the closest that the Moon has been to Earth in this century. It will not be that close again until the Fall of 2034, and the closest full moon of the entire 21st century will not rise until the Winter of 2052!
The year in which we witnessed the two historic Supermoons, while being 2016 on our Gregorian calendar, was the year 5777 on the Biblical Hebrew Calendar. I explained why “777” is the number of Almighty God YHWH, the God of Israel, in my past article about 5777. Speaking of Israel, the reason why I told you to remember the year 1948 was because it was the year that the Nation of Israel was officially reborn!
So, the 5777 Supermoon was the largest, and brightest, that it has ever been since the fulfilled Prophecy of the Jewish State’s rebirth. If you are not saying “wow” yet, then you are simply not paying attention. God “appointed the Moon for seasons.” Given all of the recent signs in the Moon, I believe that we are truly living in “the season” of something historic prophetically.
Could it really be the Rapture? Maybe a Biblical War? A historic disaster? Global government? All I know, for sure, is that the LORD has been using the Moon to alert us that something is coming. And as I’ve said in the past, I wholeheartedly believe that the “something” is a “Someone”.
In Luke, Chapter 21 and verse 25, Lord Jesus prophesied to His disciples that “There shall be signs in the Sun, and in the Moon, and in the stars.” He added in verse 27, “THEN shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with Power and great Glory.” With all of the recent signs in our skies, every believer should be LOOKING UP every day; because I truly believe that our Lord is EN ROUTE. Marana tha Yeshua!
