Sun Dark as Sackcloth and the Moon Turned into Blood

The Torah and the New Covenant both speak frequently about the occurrences of the Sun becoming dark as sackcloth and the Moon turning to blood.

Mark Blitz, El Shaddai Ministries, made a fascinating discovery in 2008.  He found a pattern of Tetrads – the occurrence of 4 total lunar eclipses in a row – repeatedly falling on the Jewish Holidays of Pesach (Passover) and Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). The Jewish holiday tetrad cycle is extremely rare, and before 1493, had not happened in over 630 years.

There have been 7 tetrad cycles in the past 2,000 years, and the next one is in 2014-15.

Tetrad schedule for 2014-15
April 15, 2014 – Blood moon on Passover
October 8, 2014 – Blood moon on Tabernacles
March 21, 2015 – Solar eclipse on 1 Nisan
April 14, 2015 – Blood moon on Passover
September 14, 2015 – Solar eclipse on Rosh Hashanah
September 28, 2015 – Blood moon on Tabernacles

This chart lists all the tetrads for the past 2,000 years.

  1. Shalom, The Lord showed me this several years ago, before the info on the tetrades came out. They serve to confirm my 'Psalm 119: Time for the End of Days.'!msg/alt.religion.christian.baptist/9hngEUPmqrY/-C3ovPEt0BMJ
