The Blood Moon: Tetrads

Today, we will continue understanding the appearance of the blood moon. We will look into the things that happened when the purposes of God for the moon are met. These purposes are when it brings signs and when it distinguishes God’s feast seasons. And when it happens, it comes into four consecutive appearances. This is called the Blood Moon Tetrad.

A Blood Moon Tetrad is when there are four consecutive total lunar eclipses, which all fall on Jewish High Holy Days.

The significance of the history of the Blood Moon Tetrads is not in the fact that there are simple eclipses, but that 4 in a row all fall on the Jewish Feast days. It is like calling our attention for it to appear four times. There were no tetrads before the crucifixion of Jesus. In history, there are 8 tetrads recorded until today. I will pick them from the very history of humanity and the world.

The First Seven Tetrads – Israel and the World

162 – 163 Persecution of Jews and Christians by Rome

Foxe’s Book of Martyrs explained that the greatest persecution in the Roman Empire happened along side with the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius and the appearance of the blood moon in 162 – 163 AD.  The truth of the matter is Emperor Marcus Aurelius was actually the most ruthless and brutal Roman Emperors recorded in the history of Rome.

The Tiber River flowing through the city of Rome flooded its banks in the Spring of 162 AD which killed most animals in Rome and brought destruction in the city. A severe Famine occurred. In 165 AD, a plague broke out killing 1/3 of the Roman Empire which includes 2 emperors.

795 – 796 Rome and Islam battle for dominance

Charlemagne defeated an Islamic Invasion of Western Europe during the series of Blood Moon transpiring in Jewish Holidays of Passover and Sukkot in the years 795 – 796 AD.

Charlemagne overpowered the former Visigoth states which was under the Muslims or had become allied with them. By 795 AD, Charlemagne had established the Marca Hispanica, a buffer zone between modern day France and Spain defending the Frankish Kingdom in Northern Europe against Islamic invasions of the Moors.

Everyone knows how many Jews Hitler killed, but find an unbeliever who can tell you how many died in jihad over the last 1400 years.

842 – 843 Vatican attacked by African Islamic invasion

The Blood Moon Tetrad proved to be a divine warning to Rome. Just three years later the Vatican church in Rome suffered an Islamic Jihad attack, having all it treasures looted by Muslim armies.

The Arab raid against Rome was an Arab raid in 846 against Rome. Raiders plundered the outskirts of the city, sacking Old St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s-Outside-the-Walls Basilicas, but were prevented from entering the city itself by the Aurelian Wall.

In the 820s, Arabs (known by medieval Italians as the Saracens) began the conquest of Sicily. In 842, Arab forces tried to capture Ponza but were beaten off by a combined fleet from Naples and Gaeta. However, the same year they took Messina, Sicily. Around the same time Radelchis I of Benevento and Siconulf of Salerno, rivals engaged in civil war, hired Arab mercenaries to fight in Campania.

860 – 861

Jews and Christians persecuted in Russia and Egypt

Important things happened in these years as well. In 861 the first Russians, sailing in 200 ships, attacked Constantinople but withdrew after the Virgin Mary’s robe was carried in procession around the walls of the city. A few years later Russia’s first ambassador to Constantinople accepted Christianity, which laid the groundwork for the conversion of Russia. In 863 Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius began translating part of the Bible into the Old Slavonic language, which also helped in the conversion of the Slavs (Russians). This later led to a great persecution of the Jews by the Russian Christians, who were themselves later severely persecuted by the Communists.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” (The Decline of Eastern Christianity Under Islam, by Bat Ye’or, page 84).

Islam unable to advance into Europe

The blood moons took place just after millions of Christians were killed by Arab crusaders in North Africa and Spain.

The Jewish Holiday tetrad occurred just prior to the Greek – Byzantine Empire victory over the Arabs at the Battle of Lalakaon which halted Islamic conquest in Eastern Europe.

The Byzantine Empire dealt a major blow to Islamic Jihads at the Battle of Lalakaon in 863 AD. The Muslim conquest of Eastern Europe was brought to a grinding halt just a half century after Charlemagne had stopped the Arab conquest of Western Europe in 795 AD.

1493 – 1494 Jews expelled from Spain, Birth of the New (Western) World

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. Many fled to Morocco where they were later persecuted. It was also in 1492 that Columbus discovered America; the U.S.A. was to become the home of many Jews and a friend to Israel.

1949 – 1950 Rebirth of Israel, freedom from the Arabs

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).

1967 – 1968 6-Day War, victory over their Arab enemies

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.

2014 – 2015 Significant Events

MH370 – Malaysian Plane Disappeared into thin air 
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing Capital International Airport in Beijing, China. The flight last made voice contact with air traffic control at 01:19 MYT (17:19 UTC, 7 March) when it was over the South China Sea, less than an hour after takeoff. The aircraft disappeared from air traffic controllers’ radar screens at 01:22. Malaysian military radar continued to track the aircraft as it deviated from its planned flight path and crossed the Malay Peninsula. It left the range of Malaysian military radar at 02:22 while over the Andaman Sea, 200 nautical miles (370 km; 230 mi) northwest of Penang in northwestern Malaysia. The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations.
Limited Access On Temple Mount
Police on Monday limited Muslim access to Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound on the Temple Mount, fearing new violence after clashes over the weekend, a spokesman said. As part of the security measures, male residents of Jerusalem would face age restrictions, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
Israel-Gaza Conflict
Timeline of the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict. Over 2014, Palestinians suffered the highest number of civilian casualties since the Six-Day War in 1967, according to a United Nations report, given the July–August conflict, and rising tolls in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The 2014 war between Israel and Gaza-based militant groups including Hamas, which lasted from July 8 to August 26, killed about 2,100 Palestinians and 73 Israelis and was sparked by the June 10 murder of three young Israeli students. The fallout from the killing eventually spiraled into an Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, a conflict that tells us a lot about the military approaches on both sides of the conflict.
ISIS Terror Began
On June 10, 2014, Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq and the capital of Ninawa province, fell to the Salafi-Jihadi organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The fall of Mosul and the subsequent blitz with which ISIS took over other Sunni majority cities shocked Washington and Baghdad. However, the leaderships of the two countries have entertained different visions as to how to deal with this surging threat to regional and international stability. This has only added another layer of misconception about ISIS and its future military and religiopolitical program in the Middle East. ISIS has achieved what Al Qaeda failed to accomplish. A recent statement by ISIS in which it rebranded itself as the “Islamic State,” declaring the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, led by its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as Caliph Ibrahim, shows both the astuteness of its military command and ingenuity of its ideologues. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the Islamic State has already replaced Al Qaeda as the paradigm organization of Salafi-Jihadists and stands, if not defeated in its formative stage, not only to change the map of political geography of the Middle East, but also the scope and breadth of Salafi-jihadi threat to the West and Middle East.
China – Japan Conflict 
Five tiny uninhabited islands slumber in the Pacific Ocean a short distance from Taiwan, China, and Japan. The Japanese call them the Senkaku Islands. The Chinese call them the Diaoyu Islands. Japan controls the islands, but China wants them. While international law favors Japan, it would be a mistake to think the law will stop China from grabbing them. That means that even though no one uses the islands currently for anything, if World War III takes place anytime soon, this is where it will start—implausible as that may sound.
Russia – Ukraine Conflict: Russia annex Crimea fueled up to bombing and invasions
It began when the Ukrainian government decided not to sign the agreement with the European Union back in the fall of 2013. This was not just a trade agreement, but also a political agreement that committed Ukraine to adhere to certain European values and principles. From there the crisis moved very quickly to corruption and regime change. The demonstrations happened in waves, and started primarily in Kiev. Most of the protestors were students and young people, although other regions were represented as well. For these protestors, it was an opportunity to fight corruption.
When Ukraine became independent in 1991, it inherited a nuclear arsenal from the Soviet Union, which made it the fourth largest nuclear power in the world. After much persuasion from western countries, in 1994 Ukraine gave up these weapons, and they were removed from the country. In return, Ukraine was reassured by the leaders of the United States, Russia, and the United Kingdom of its security, sovereignty, and the inviolability of its borders. Russia has invaded Crimea, but the United States and the United Kingdom are still committed to this promise. Of course, promises may be broken without much reaction. But this may spark growing concerns about countries not developing nuclear weapons, which may have grave implications for global security. The next steps are still unclear—we must wait and see.
Yemeni Civil War Take Off
The Yemeni Civil War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2015 between two factions claiming to constitute the Yemeni government, along with their supporters and allies. Southern separatists and forces loyal to the government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, based in Aden, have clashed with Houthiforces and forces loyal to the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have also carried out attacks, with AQAP controlling swaths of territory in the hinterlands, and along stretches of the coast.

On 22 March 2015, a Houthi offensive began with fighting in the Taiz Governorate. By 25 March,Taiz, Mocha, and Lahij fell to the Houthis and they reached the outskirts of Aden, the seat of power for Hadi’s government. On 25 March, Hadi fled the country. On the same day, a coalition led bySaudi Arabia launched military operations by using airstrikes to restore the former Yemeni government and the United States provided intelligence and logistical support for the campaign. As of 2 May, at least 400 civilians have died in Aden.

Iraqi Insurgency Escalation
The Iraqi insurgency, later referred to as the Iraq Crisis and the Iraqi Civil War, escalated after the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011, resulting in violent conflict with the central government, as well as sectarian violence among Iraq’s religious groups.
In 2014, the insurgency escalated dramatically following the conquest of Mosul and major areas in northern Iraq by the Sunni rebel group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), thereby merging the new conflict with the Syrian Civil War, into a new, far deadlier conflict.
China Stock Market Crash
The Chinese stock market crash began with the popping of the stock market bubble on 12 June 2015. A third of the value of A-shares on the Shanghai Stock Exchange was lost within one month of the event. Major after shocks occurred around July 27 and August 24’s “Black Monday.”
Money magazine estimated that the potential negative impact on the United States stock market may come about when Chinese investors begin to seek out relatively stable U.S. investments in treasuries, stocks, and cash, and further strengthen an already-strong U.S. dollar, thereby raising the prices on U.S. goods and diminishing export profits.
USA Legalize Same Sex Marriage
Same-sex marriages are now legal across the entirety of the United States after a historic supreme court ruling that declared attempts by conservative states to ban them unconstitutional. In what may prove the most important civil rights case in a generation, five of the nine court justices determined that the right to marriage equality was enshrined under the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment.
Victory in the case – known as Obergefell v Hodges, after an Ohio man who sued the state to get his name listed on his late husband’s death certificate – capped years of campaigning by LGBT rights activists, high-powered attorneys andcouples waiting decades for the justices to rule. It immediately led to scenes of jubilation from coast to coast, as campaigners, politicians and everyday people – gay, straight and in-between – hailed “a victory of love”.
Pope’s Fast Process Of Marriage Annulment

Pope Francis issues law allowing for fast-track decisions and for appeals to be judged by local churches rather than the Vatican. The Vatican is making it much easier for Catholics to annul their marriages following a push by Pope Francis for reformation of a process long criticized for being complicated, costly and out of reach for many.

Rules unveiled on Tuesday speed up the annulment process, with a fast-track procedure now available, and allow for appeals to be judged by a local church official rather than the Vatican in what represents a significant decentralisation of power away from Rome.

What Lies Ahead Of Us On The Last Blood Moon Of 2014-2015 Tetrad?

Now, we see how the Israel and the world is signaled by the appearance of the blood moon. What very noticeable here in the series of tetrads in the history of the world is that the 2014-2015 tetrad has the appearances of solar eclipse. What does it awaits us this coming blood moon? It is the culmination of all the tetrads in the history of mankind.  Will it fulfill verses in the Book of Revelations? The sixth seal?


12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold,[a] there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon[b]became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders,[c] the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:12-17, NKJV)


Will this be a parallel message with The Big One coming? Or will it be worse? Only God knows… And only in Him is the safe place a man can ever find…
