The Blood Moon and Pope Francis
(Part 2)

The Prophet Joel, in Joel 2:31 prophesied: "The Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before the Great and Terrible Day-of-the-Lord" (the "Great Tribulation" — Matt. 24:21) "comes," Quoting that prophecy the Apostle Peter wrote prophetically — in Acts 2:20 — "The Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before that Great and Notable Day-of-the-Lord" (the "Great Tribulation — Matt. 24:21) "comes."

Blood Moon

As if to manifest the beginning of the fulfillment of that prophecy on the date of April 15, 2014 there was the manifestation of the first of a "Tetrad" of "4 Blood Moons" which will also be accompanied by a Solar Eclipse (total "Eclipse of the Sun") that I wrote to you about in last month's "End-Times Trumpet" article — "The Blood Moon & Pope Francis — Part 1".

Lunar Eclipse

What causes the Moon to turn "blood red" (as a "Blood Moon") is that as the Moon completes being "eclipsed" by the Sun — in a "Lunar Eclipse" — is that the light of the Sun shining through the atmosphere of the Earth, as the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon in a "Lunar Eclipse", causes a "red shadow" to fall upon the surface of the Moon, thus causing the Moon to take on a "blood red" appearance as a "Blood Moon".

The "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons accompanied by a total 'Eclipse of the Sun'" that began on the date of Apr. 15, 2014 was actually the 8th "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" since the beginning of the "Dispensation of Grace" which began with the crucifixion death & resurrection of Jesus Christ, which also contained in the years around it and the year of it a "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons accompanied by a total 'Eclipse of the Sun'" on the day of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, occurring on the Jewish Feast Days of the "Feast Of Passover" & the "Feast Of Tabernacles", as is illustrated by this graph from "Blood Red Moons — The Hidden Wisdom":

As we consider this subject of a "Tetrad of 4 total Lunar Eclipses" (a "Tetrad of 4 'Blood Moons' — 'Eclipses of the Moon' — over a 2-year period spaced 6 months apart) we might ask the question: "How common is a Tetrad of 4 total 'Lunar Eclipses'". According to "What Is A Blood Moon? — Human World — EarthSky" the answer is: "Depending upon which Century you live in, a 'Lunar Tetrad'(four consecutive 'Lunar Eclipses' — 'Eclipses of the Moon' — spaced at six lunar months apart from each other) may happen fairly frequently, or not at all. For instance in our 21st Century (2001-2100) there are a total of 8 Tetrads, but in the 17th, 18th, and 19th Centuries there were none at all. If we include all the Centuries from the 1st Century (AD 1-100) through the 21st Century (2001-2100) inclusive, there are a total of 62 Tetrads. The last one occurred in 2003-2004, and the next one after that is the present 2014-2015, and the next one after that will happen in 2032-2033. However, if we want to know which one of these 'Tetrads 'fell on the same date as Jewish Feasts, there appears to be only 8 in these 21 Centuries."

The 8 "Tetrads of 4 Blood Moons" that have occurred since the beginning of "The Dispensation Of Grace" (which was instituted by Jesus death on the Cross followed by His Resurrection from the dead, and then His Ascension into Heaven) are called "Biblical Tetrads" because they occur on the Jewish Feast of Passover (which is prophetic of the crucifixion death of Jesus Christ, in that He was put to death by crucifixion on the date of the Jewish Passover) and the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles (which is prophetic of Christ's "Second Coming" when He returns to Earth to "tabernacle" among men).

In my last months "End-Times Trumpet" article (June, 2014) I wrote to you explaining the occurance of the first 5 of the 8 "Biblical Tetrads" which were, as depicted by "Blood Moon Rapture", as follows:

(1) Famine — Persecution & Plague followed 162-163 AD Jewish Lunar Eclipses

Now in this month's "End-Times Trumpet" I want to pick up with and explain the last 3 of the "8 Biblical Tetrads" which all pertain to the "end-times" as a "Sign of the End", in that all three of them also contain within their series a total "Eclipse of the Sun" ("Solar Eclipse"), bearing in mind that both the Prophet Joel and the Apostle Peter prophesied: "The Sun will be turned Into darkness and the Moon into blood before the coming of the Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord" (the "Great Tribulation") "begins."

6) The 6th Biblical "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons, which was a|so accompanied with a total 'Eclipse of the Sun'", which was also a specific "Sign of the^ End-Times", was the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of the years 1949-1950, which also occurred on the Jewish Feast Days of "Feast of Passover" & "Feast of Tabernacles", as follows:

Total Solar Eclipse
Fig. 9. Visibility chart of September 12, 1950 total solar eclipse superimposed by photograph of August 11, 1999 total solar eclipse. (Chart credit: www.wikipedia.org — Photo Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
(1) On April 13, 1949 there was the occurance of a "Blood Moon" ("Eclipse of the Moon") on the same date as the Jewish "Feast of Passover";

(2) Again, on the date of Oct. 7, 1949 there was the occurance of a "Blood Moon" on the same date as the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles";

(3) Then again, on the date of April 2, 1950 on the same date as the Jewish "Feast of Passover" there was the occurance of a "Blood Moon";

(4) On the date of Sept. 12, 1950 there was a total "Eclipse of the Sun" ("Solar Eclipse");

(5) Concluding this "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons", on the date of Sept. 26, 1950 there was another "Blood Moon" ("Eclipse of the Moon").

What was prophetically signif¬icant about the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1949-1950 was the fact that the fulfillment of the "Resurrection of Ezekiel's bone yard" — of Ezek. 37 — came to pass 1 year previous to the beginning of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1949-1950 as in the year 1948 the United Nations declared the establishment of the Nation of Israel, as is documented by this "Palestine Post" newspaper:

May 14, 1948 Palestine Post Newspaper.
Fig. 10. May 14, 1948 Palestine Post Newspaper. (Photo Credit: www.wikipedia.com)
The re-birth of the Nation of Israel in 1948 — 1 year before the beginning of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1949-1950 — was definitely "end-times" significant, in that in Ezek. 37:12-14 (at the conclusion of the "bone yard prophecy") God said: "Therefore prophecy and say unto them: 'Thus says the Lord God: Behold O my people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
     "And you shall know that I am the Lord when I have opened your graves, O My people and brought you up out of your graves.
     "And shall put My Spirit in you and you shall live and I shall place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,' says the Lord."

The re-birth of the Nation of Israel "in the last days" seemed also to be foretold by the Lord Jesus Christ, where in Luke 13:6-9 He referred to the Nation of Israel as His "Fig Tree" and then in Matt. 24:32 He spoke of the "budding of a Fig Tree", and then in Vrs. 34 He said: "Surely I say unto you that this generation" (the "generation" that "sees the Fig Tree" — Israel — "bud" [come back to life after having been dead as a Nation] "will not pass away until all these" (end-times events) "are fulfilled."

As the rebirth of the Nation of Israel applied to the "Tetrad of Blood Moons of 1949-1950" is seen by the fact that even though the United Nations declared Israel a nation in 1948, and the Israeli "Declaration Of Independence" was declared on the date of May 14, 1948, yet the Arabs in the surrounding nations would not accept the "Statehood" of the Nation of Israel and began attacking them, so that the Israeli's then had to fight a "War of Independence", which war extended over into the time of the "Tetrad of Blood Moons" so that the "Armistace" that ended their "War of Independence" with the Arabs was not signed until the date of July 20, 1949, 3 months after the "Blood Moon" of Apr. 13, 1949.

Another significant event that took place in the Nation of Israel just previous to the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons of 1949-1950" was the discovery of the "Dead Sea Scrolls" on the date of Jan. 28,1949.

7) The 7th "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons also accompanied by a total 'Eclipse of the Sun'", after the beginning of the "Dispensation of Grace", occurred in the years 1967-1968 as follows:

Total Solar Eclipse

(1) On the date of Apr. 24, 1967 there was a "Blood Moon" — "Eclipse of the Moon" — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";

(2) On the date of Oct. 18, 1967 there was a "Blood Moon" — "Eclipse of the Moon" — on the same day as the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles".

(3) On the date of Nov. 2, 1967 there was a total "Solar Eclipse" (total "Eclipse of the Sun");

(4) On the date of Apr. 13, 1968 there was another occurance of a "Blood Moon" which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Passover";

5) Finally on the date of Oct. 6, 1968 there was the final occurance of a "Blood Moon" in the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons of 1967-1968".

The prophetically significant event that took place during the "1967-1968 Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" was that the Israeli's recaptured the city of Jerusalem in a 6-day war with the Arabs. Describing this event, "6 Day War Jewish Tetrad Lunar Eclipses — Red Moon Rapture" states "Jerusalem is a holy city to three major faiths — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — and figures prominently in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Since 1004 BC, when King David established Jerusalem as the Capitol of his Kingdom, there has been a continuous Jewish presence in Jerusalem, the holiest city of Judaism. Following the building of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the designation of the holy sites by Constantine the Great in 333 AD, Jerusalem became a destination of Christian pilgrimages. During the Arab Umayyad rule from 661 to 750, the 'Dome of the Rock' and the Al-Aqsa Mosque were built on the site where the Jewish Temple had once stood and Jerusalem then became the 3rd holiest city in Islam.

"Jews have constituted the largest ethnic group in Jerusalem since 1820. During the 19 years when the Nation of Jordan occupied eastern Jerusalem and it's holy sites from 1948-1967, Jerusalem was divided. Jews were expelled from eastern Jerusalem and barred from visiting their holy places.

"Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol sent a message to King Hussein of Jordan the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Passover"; saying that Israel would not attack Jordan unless he initiated hostilities. When Jordanian radar picked up a cluster of airplanes flying from Egypt to Israel, the Egyptians convinced Hussein that the planes were theirs, so Hussein then ordered the shelling of West Jerusalem.

"It turned out that the planes were Israel's and were returning from destroying the Egyptian Air Force on the ground. Meanwhile Syrian and Iraqi troops attacked Israel's northern frontier. Had Jordan not attacked^the status of Jerusalem would not have changed during the course of the war. But once the city came under fire, however, Israel needed to defend it, and in doing so, took the opportunity to unify it's Capitol once and for all. On the third day of the war — June 7, 1967 — Israeli Defense Forces paratroopers seized control of the Western Wall, the remnant of Solomon's Temple.

"In an emotional moment, General Rabbi Shlomo Goren, the Chief Chaplain of the IDF blew a long note on the Shofar (Ram's horn) announcing the release of the Western Wall and the old city of Jerusalem.

"As a result of the Six-Day War, the entire city of Jerusalem and it's holy sites came under Jewish control. Israel reunited the city, extending Israeli Law, jurisdiction, and administration to the parts previously occupied by Jordan. The Israeli Knesset passed laws to protect the holy sites and to ensure freedom of worship to all, and offered Israeli citizenship to Jerusalem's Arab residents, most of whom declined."

The Biblical prophecy that was fulfilled by the recapture of the city of Jerusalem by the Nation of Israel in the "Six-Day War" was: Luke 21:24 — "...and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the Times of the Gentiles be fulfilled."

8) We now come to the 8th and final Biblical "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons accompanied by a total Eclipse of the Sun" that will occur in this Century which began with the "Blood Moon Eclipse of the Moon" on the date of Apr. 15, 2014 which was the Jewish "Feast Of Passover" and will conclude on the date of Sept. 28, 2015 which will also be the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles". The schedule for the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons of the years 2014-1015" is as follows:

(1) The first of the "Blood Moons of 2014-2015" has already occurred on the date of Apr. 15, 2014 which was the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";

(2) The second of the "Blood Moons of 2014-2015" will occur on the date of Oct. 8, 2014, which will be the same date as the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles";

(3) On the date of March 20, 2015 there will be a total "Eclipse of the Sun" which will be the Jewish "New Year for Kings55;

(4) The 3rd of the "Blood Moons of 2014-2015" will occur on the date of April 4, 2015 which will be same date as the Jewish "Feast of Passover";

(5) On the date of Sept. 13, 2015 there will be a partial "Eclipse of the Sun" on the same date as the Jewish "Feast of Trumpets" (which is prophetic of the "Rapture of the Church" —1 Thess. 4:14-17);

(6) Finally on the date of Sept. 28, 2015 there will be the final occurance of a "Blood Moon" of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons of 2014-2015". This current "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" was also preceeded by the vaporizing of Comet ISON by the Sun on the date of Nov. 28, 2013 and the name "ISON" means "Disaster" or "Accident". "2014-2015 Jewish Comet & Tetrad Red Blood Moon Eclipses — Red Moon Rapture" illustrates the present "2014-2015 Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" this way:

In considering the current "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" which will end in the year 2015, it is also interesting to note that next year — 2015 — will also be the Jewish "Shemittah Year" ("Year of Rest"), and in the past the "Shemittah Year" on the Jewish calendar has had great significance as some very momentous events have occurred in that year. Some of those events of recent "Shemittah Years" (every 7th year = "Year of Rest") are:

(1) In the Shemittah Year of 1973 the Supreme Court's decision on "Roe vrs. Wade" occurred which has resulted in the deaths of 60-million unborn children.

(2) 7 years later — in the Shemittah Year of 1980 the Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had his forces invade Kuwait, which signaled the beginning of the Gulf War years.

(3) 7 years later — in the Shemittah Year of 1987 a Supernova that could be seen with the naked eye occurred for the first time since 1604 and the same year the US Stock Market crashed.

(4) 7 years later — in the Shemittah Year of 1994 Yasser Arafat — the leader of the PLO — returned to the Middle East and a rare earthquake occurred in North America on the New Madrid Fault Line, spanning the Midwest of the US up to Canada.

(Photo and Caption Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
(5) 7 years later — in the Shemittah Year of 2001 was the occurance of "9-11" — Sept. 11, 2001 — when Arab Muslims known as "Al-Quaida" attacked and destroyed the World Trade Center Towers in New York City and also dam¬aged the Pentagon in Washington, DC.

The destruction of the World Trade Center Towers on the date of Sept. 11, 2001 fulfilled another "end-times" Biblical Prophecy of Isa. 30:25 — "And there shall be upon every high mountain" (the highest of the Twin Towers) "and upon every high hill" (the shortest of the Twin Towers) "rivers and streams of waters" (sprayed upon the Twin Towers by the New York firemen trying to put out the fire) "in the day of the great slaughter" (around 3000 people died in the "great slaughter" of the fall of the Twin Towers) "when the Towers fall!"

(6) 7 years later — in the Shemittah Year of 2008 America experienced a Stock Market Crash on the date of Sept. 29, when the Stock Market fell by 777 points in one day: the greatest decline of the Stock Market in one days time.

(7) 7 years later — which will be the year 2015 will be the manifestation of the 4th of the "Blood Moons" of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons of 2014-2015". What "momentous" event will occur that year? Will it be a war in the Middle East or will it be the signing of a Middle East Peace Agreement, perhaps the one referred to prophetically in Dan. 9:27 — "And he" (Antichrist) "shall confirm the Covenant with many for one week" (1 "heptad" = 7 years). We wait to see!

I find it interesting that there will not be another "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" falling on the Jewish Feast days again u_blank and will conclude on the date of Sept. 28, 2015 which will also be the Jewish ntil the years 2582-2583. And since both the Prophet Joel and the Apostle Peter both prophesied that "the Sun will be turned to darkness and the Moon to blood before the coming of the Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord" (the Tribulation) and the fact that that will not happen again for nearly 500 years, I have got to believe that the coming of the Lord is near!

I also find it interesting that this current "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" is the 8th such "Tetrad" since the beginning of the "Dispensation of Grace", and in the Bible the number "8" is the number of "new beginnings", so what "new beginning" will the culmination of this current "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" bring?

The "new beginning" that is quite likely to take place during this present "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" is that the Middle East Peace Settlement, prophetically referred to in Dan. 9:27 — "And he" (Antichrist) "shall confirm the Covenant" (Middle East Peace Agreement) "with many..." will finally be signed and the present Pope Francis is having a part to play in that.

Concerning the present "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" we notice that the 1st of those "Blood Moons" occurred on the date of Apr. 15, 2014, and the very next month — May 2014 — Pope Francis made a trip to the Middle East where he met with the leaders of Jordan, Palestine, and Israel to "talk peace" for the Middle East.

An internet news article dated May 24, 2014 from Amman, Jordan read: "Pope Francis thanked Jordan on Saturday for welcoming hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing the Civil War in Syria, calling for an 'urgent' peaceful solution to the conflict in the neighboring nation of Syria, as he began a 3-day visit to the Middle East.

"Pope Francis also lauded Jordan for the 'climate of serene coexistence' enjoyed by Christians and Muslims in the desert kingdom. He called for greater protections for minority Christians across the region in a speech to King Abdullah II and Jordanian political and religious leaders.

On this visit to the Middle East, Pope Francis inserted himself into the "Peace Process" of the Middle East, as a
Pope in Bethlehem

"USA Today" internet news article from Bethlehem in the West Bank of Palestine, dated May 25, 2014, read: "Israeli and Palestinian leaders accepted an invitation to the Vatican next month — June — from Pope Francis, who urged the two sides to make sacrifices to achieve peace. 'The time has come for everyone to find the courage to be generous and creative in the service of the common good,' Francis said at a welcoming ceremony in Bethlehem hosted by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The Pope continued: 'The climate of instability and lack of mutual understanding have produced insecurity, the violation of rights, isolation, and the flight of entire communities, conflicts, shortages, and suffering of every sort,'

The article continued: "Two enormous flags, one the yellow and white Flag of the Vatican, and the other — the red, white, black, and green Palestinian Flag — were draped side by side from a building on the square.

"The Pope's decision to fly by helicopter from Amman, Jordan into Palestinian-ruled Bethlehem gained favor with the Palestinians who felt that it was a small but important acknowledgement of their sovereignty.

Trying to show equal respect for both the Israeli's and the Palestinians in his peace-making efforts in the Middle East, while visiting the Palestinian "West Bank" Pope Francis, as reported by "The Guardian" on the date of May 26, 2014, stopped to visit "Israel's separation barrier" in Bethlehem (a wall that separates the West Bank from Israel) which angered the Israeli's and caused them to say that the Palestinians had "used the Pope as a political tool" in taking him to see the wall, where he stopped to pray:

However, in trying to be fair to both sides, while visiting in Israel, Pope Francis also stopped to pray at the Israeli "Memorial To Victims Of Terror" which is engraved wit the names of Israeli civilians killed mainly in attacks by Palestinian militants.

While in Israel, Pope Francis also stopped to lay a tribute of flowers in the papal colors of yellow and white in the "Hall Of Remembrance" in memory of Holocaust survivors, where he also kissed the hands of half a dozen survivors of the Holocaust and listened to their stories, where he said in prayer: "Never again, Lord, never again. Here we are Lord shamed by what

man, created in Your own Image and likeness, was capable of doing."

Also trying to be fair to the Arab Muslims, Pope Francis also at the Muslim Mosque called the "Dome Of The Rock", built over the rock from where Muhammed supposedly "ascended into Heaven", stopped to greet the Muslim "Mufti of Jerusalem" where he departed from his prepared text to call the Mufti arid the other Muslim authorities "dear brothers" rather then his prepared text of "dear friends", which angered the Israeli's in that the "Mufti of Jerusalem" — Muhammed Ahmad Hussein — has been condemned by the US and by the EU for his calls for the annhiliation of the Jews in the name of
Pope at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial

Islam.

Speaking to the "Mufti of Jerusalem" and the other Muslim authorities at the "Dome of the Rock", Pope Francis said: "Dear friends, from this holy place I make a heartfelt plea to all people and to all communities who look to Abraham: May no one abuse the name of God through violence. May we learn to understand the suffering of others. May no one abuse the name of God through violence."

"VGA" — "Voice Of America" — in an article titled ''Pope Francis Get Involved In Middle East Peace Process", dated June 5, 2014, from Washington, wrote: "Israeli President

Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abaas are expected to meet at the Vatican on Sunday — June 8 —" (Pentecost Sunday) "for what is being called an "intense prayer session", with Pope Francis" (praying for Middle East Peace).

"The unexpected invitation was extended during the Pope's recent visit to the Middle East.

"Deniel Petri of the 'Catholic University of America' in Washington said: 'Pope Francis is the miracle-worker of the Middle East.' The Pope is already seen as a maker of miracles by many of his followers. His 'Prayer Vigil For Peace In Syria', on the date of Sept. 7, 2013 was followed by an agreement a week later that prevented US air strikes over the Assad Regime's use of chemical weapons.

"Christopher Hale of 'Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good' has argued in Time Magazine that the Pope's accomplishments in the Middle East have shown him to be 'the World's best Politician'."

People PC Online — on the date of Sunday June 8, 2014 in an AP news release from Vatican City, titled "Pope Dives Into Mideast Peace With Prayer Summit", wrote: "Pope Francis plunged head-first into Mideast peace-making Sunday, welcoming the Israeli and Palestinian Presidents to the Vatican for a remarkable evening of peace prayers just weeks after the last round of US-sponsored negotiations collapsed.

"Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas joked and embraced in the foyer of the Vatican Hotel where Francis lives and later in the Vatican Gardens, where they joined Francis in presiding over a Sunset invocation of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim prayers.

"Francis told the two men, who signed the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993, that he hoped the Summit would mark 'a new journey' toward Peace. He said too many children had been killed by war and violence, and that their memory should instill the strength and patience to work for dialogue and coexistence.

"'Peacemaking calls for courage, much more so then warfare,' he said. 'It calls for the courage to say 'yes' to encounter and 'no' to conflict.'

"The meeting has cemented Francis reputation as a leader unhindered by diplomatic and theological protocol who is willing to go out on a limb for the sake of Peace. Francis capitalized on both his own enormous popularity and the peace-loving heritage of his namesake, St. Francis of Assisi, to bring the two sides together. "The prayers focused on three themes common to each of the religions: thanking God for creation, seeking forgiveness for past wrongdoing, and praying to God to bring Peace to the region. "At the conclusion," (Pope) "Francis," (President) "Peres, and" (President) "Abbas shook hands and planted an Olive Tree together as a 'sign of Peace'" (fig. 20).

The Peoplepc Online article continued: "Israeli President Peres, 90, deviated from his prepared remarks in the Garden to add a personal note as his term as Israeli President is coming to an end: 'I was young, now I am old,' he said, 'I experienced war, I tasted Peace. Never will I forget the bereaved families — parents and children — who paid the cost of war. And all of my life I shall never stop to act for Peace, for generations to come. Let's all of us join hands and make it happen,' he said.

"Palestinian President Abbas made a few political points, saying that Palestinians craved Peace as well as 'dignified living' and 'freedom in our sovereign and independent State. We want Peace for us and for our neighbors,' he said."

Lightning strikes two buildings in NYC

On the same day — May 25, 2014 — in which Pope Francis was in the Middle East inviting the Israeli President — Shimon Peres — and the Palestinian President — Mahmoud Abbas — to Rome for the "Peace For The Middle East Prayer Meeting" (which was conducted on the date of Sunday June 8, 2014 in Rome), at the same time in New York City the two tallest buildings in the city — the Empire State Building & the new Freedom Tower (which replaced the World Trade Center Towers) — were simultaneously struck by lightning bolts (as was photographed by Jon Rubino, a weather and photography buff) as was reported by the New York Post and shown in fig. 21.

The New York Post news article stated: "This spectacular picture shows two bolts of lightning simultaneously striking the two tallest buildings in the city.

"The once in a lifetime shot was taken by Jon Rubino, a weather and photography buff, from his 15th floor Long island City apartment overlooking the East River during the violent rain and thunderstorm.

"He was watching TV reruns while his camera, pointed out the window, was automatically taking pictures every 30 seconds. When he checked his computer he was startled to see that he had captured lightning striking both the Empire State Building and the new Freedom Tower."

Could this have been just a coincidence that this double lightning strike on the Empire State Building and the new Freedom Tower in New York City occurred at the same time that Pope Francis was "setting up" the Rome "Peace For The Middle East Prayer Meeting" with the Presidents of Israel and the Palestinians? It could have been merely a coincidence or it could have also been a warning from God concerning the future "Middle East Peace Covenant" that will be "confirmed" by the Antichrist that is spoken of in Dan. 9:27.

When we consider the fact that Dan. 9:27 forecasts that the future 7-year "Great Tribulation" (Matt. 24:21) will begin with a "Peace Covenant" in the Middle East "confirmed" by the Antichrist, and when we also consider the fact that the rise of the Antichrist & his Kingdom is described in the 13th Chapter of the Book of Revelation, and we also note that Pope Francis is also associated with the number "13" by virtue of the fact that he as Ordained as a Priest on the 13th day of December 1969, and was then officially installed as Pope on the 13th day of March in the year 2013, this causes me to believe that it is quite likely that the "Middle East Peace Covenant" of Dan. 9:27 that the Antichrist will "confirm", which will begin the 7-year Tribulation, may be brought about by the intervention of the peace-making efforts of Pope Francis.

We also note that in Rev. 17 the Roman Catholic church (and the Pope who heads it up) is identified as a "Harlot Woman", who at the beginning of the reign of the Antichrist comes into "alliance" with the Antichrist as is seen by the fact that the "Harlot" — "Mystery Babylon" — is seen "riding the Beast" (and the "Beast" is the Antichrist). We know that this "Harlot" — "Mystery Babylon" — is the Roman Catholic Church, headquartered out of Rome, because of the fact that Rev. 17:18 says: "And the Woman which you saw is that Great City that reigns over the Kings of the Earth" which, at the time that John wrote the Book of Revelation was the city of Rome as the Capitol/ Headquarters of the Roman Empire, and today is the Capitol/Headquarters of Roman Catholicism. We also note that "Mystery Babylon", according to Rev. 17:9 is "built upon seven hills" which are the "7 Hills of Rome". We also note that the apparel of "Mystery Babylon" identifies her as the "Religion of Rome" which is Roman Catholicism, in that Rev. 17:4 says she is "arrayed in Purple and Scarlet color" which is the colors of the robes of the Bishops (Purple) and Cardinals (Scarlet Red) of Roman Catholicism.

The reason why the "Harlot Woman" (Roman Catholicism) is called "Mystery Babylon" is because of the fact that many of her religious practices actually originated from ancient Babylon, including the fact that in ancient Babylon, Nimrod — the founder/ builder of the Tower of Babel — was worshipped as the "Sun god", which worship was picked up and practiced by the Israeli's, which God condemned in Ezek. 8:16, and then later was transferred to Rome (in the "Pagen Religion" of the "Roman Empire") in the worship of the Roman "Sun god" —"Sol Invictus" — as is illustrated by a silver disk depicting "Sol Invictus" shown in fig. 23.

Pope Francis' Coat of Arms

And in connection with that, we note that the dominant feature on the "Papal Coat Of Arms" of Pope Francis is the large "Sun symbol" (which is the symbol of the Jesuits of which he is a member) but which also identifies him with the "Sun god" worship of ancient Babylon.

Thus, considering the peace-making efforts of Pope Francis in the Middle-East, and the fact that he also identifies with the ancient "Sun god" symbol of Babylon & ancient Rome, could he be the "Mystery Babylon" Pope that will bring about a Middle East Peace Covenant that the Antichrist will "confirm" to begin the 7-year Tribulation all the while that the present "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons" is transpiring?

In considering this we also factor in the fact that the Jews are continuing to migrate back to Israel in fulfillment of "end-times" Biblical Prophecy, even while the present "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons" is continuing to transpire as is documented by this People PC/Associated Press news article from the date of June 19, 2014 headlined "French Jews Leave For Israel In Increasing Numbers" which stated: "Increasing numbers of French Jews are leaving for Israel citing dim economic prospects and a sense of being caught between the increasingly extreme far right of Europe and the radical militant Islam of Europe. More than 5,000 are on track to leave this year, the most since the 'Six-Day War' in 1967. France has the third-largest Jewish population after Israel and the United States: about 500,000 according to rough estimates."

Here is what has occurred, concerning the Nation of Israel and the Middle East since the occurance of the April 15, 2014 'Blood Moon' — the 1st 'Blood Moon' of the current 'Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons':

The prophecy of Joel 2:31 that forecasts the "end-times" event of "the Sun being darkened" (as will occur in the total Solar Eclipse — "Eclipse Of The Sun" — on the date of March 20, 2015) and "the Moon turning to blood" (as occurred in the "Blood Moon" — Eclipse Of The Moon — Lunar Eclipse of Apr. 15, 2014 and as will occur again in the "Blood Moon" Eclipses on the dates of Oct. 8, 2014 & Apr. 4, 2015 & Sept. 28, 2015) prophecy is preceded in Vrs. 30 of Joel 2 with the prophetic forecast "And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke." These words seem to be prophetic of not only the current "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons and the accompanying total Solar Eclipse" ("wonders in the heavens") but also the words "and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke" seem to speak prophetically of the current war in the Gaza Strip between the Israeli's and Palestinians (as one example of "pillars of smoke" is seen in the photograph D — July 7, 2014 — "Israel Launches War Upon Gaza/Hamas") showing the Israeli air strike upon the Gaza International Airport in Rafah, Southern Gaza, which was the "opening salvo" of the current Israeli/Palestinian Conflict in Gaza, in which Israel for 10 days — July 7, 2014 — July 17, 2014 — fought an "air war" against Hamas in Gaza and then which was followed by a "ground invasion" of Gaza by the Israelis in response to the Palestinians in the month of May, 2014 kidnapping and killing 3 israeli teenagers and the continual rocket attacks upon Israel from the Gaza Strip. In the Israeli/Palestinian War in Gaza — to date — over 1,400 Palestinians have been killed, 59 Israelis have been killed and over 200,000 Palestinians have fled their homes, some taking refuge in United Nations shelters. All of this "blood-shed" seems to have been "foretold" or "foreshadowed" by the Moon becoming "blood-red" in the "Blood Moon" Lunar Eclipse of Apr. 15, 2014.

All this tells us that these are "the last days" and "the Sun being darkened" (as will occur in the total "Solar Eclipse" of March 20, 2015: "The Jewish New Year For Kings") and "the Moon turning to blood" ("blood red" as a "Blood Moon") as is occurring in the present "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons" which will culminate on the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles" on the date of Sept. 28, 2015, preceded by a partial "Solar Eclipse" on the date of Sept. 13, 2015 — the Jewish "Feast Of Trumpets" — (which is prophetic of the event of the "Rapture of the Church") — are all signs of "the last days" as we note that the Prophet Joel — in Joel 2:31 prophesied: "The Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before the Great and Terrible Day-Of-The-Lord" (the "Great Tribulation") "comes" and likewise the Apostle Peter prophesied, in quoting Joel's prophecy, in Acts 2:20 — "The Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before that Great and Notable Day-Of-The-Lord" (the "Great Tribulation") "comes." We could well be living in that day & age now, as these things are occurring in the present "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons".

Be looking up! Jesus is coming soon!
