The Blood Moon and Pope Francis
(Part 1)

by Pastor/Evangelist Len Hutsell
This article has been viewed 1482 times.

The last 3 months of March, April, and May, I, in these End-Times Trumpet articles, have written about the first three of the "Seven Letters To The Seven Churches" in Revelation Chapter 2 and Chapter 3, where I noted that because those "7 Letters" are contained in a "Book Of Prophecy" (Rev. 1:3 / Rev. 22:19) they are, therefore "prophetical" in content. I will continue with that series in a couple of months, but for now I want to interrupt that series to write to you this month about the "Blood Moon and Pope Francis" (although I will write more about Pope Francis as he is connected to the "Blood Moons" in next month's "part 2" article), as I believe that what is going on in the Middle East, with Pope Francis inserting himself into the "Middle East Peace Process" is "end-times" prophetical and may be occurring because we are now in the 8th "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons" since the year AD1, and I might also note that the next segment on the "Seven Churches" — "The Church Of Thyatira" — is prophetical of the "Roman Catholic Era of Church History", which this and next month's End-Times Trumpet articles about "The Blood Moon and Pope Francis" will also apply to.

Blood Moon

In the month of April on the date of the 15th day of the month there was a total "Lunar Eclipse" — "Eclipse Of The Moon" — which, while the Moon was going into the state of being "eclipsed", it turned "blood red", as is forecast for the Moon in the "end-times", as Joel 2:31 forecasts "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."

With the understanding that "the Moon turning "blood red" before the coming of the Lord and the time of the "Great and Terrible Day Of The Lord" (the "Great Tribulation") was forecast for "the end-time", let us look and see what the Bible teaches us about the Moon, the Sun, and the Stars, and see how this might apply to the "end-times".

Gen. 1:14 — "And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night, and let them be for SIGNS and for seasons, and for days, and for years." In this verse we see that God set the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars in the "heavens" for several purposes, which are:

1) To serve as "lights" "in the firmament of the heavens" — This is seen in Gen. 1:15-17 — (God said): "And let them be for LIGHTS in the firmament of the heavens to give LIGHT upon the Earth, and it was so.
     "And God made two great LIGHTS: the greater LIGHT"
(the Sun) "to rule the day, and the lesser LIGHT" (the Moon) "to rule the night; He made the STARS" (which are also LIGHTS) also."
     "And God set them in the firmament of the heaven TO GIVE LIGHT upon the Earth."

2) "...to divide the day from the night..." — (in that the LIGHT of the Sun shines on the Earth in the daytime and the LIGHT of the Moon shines on the Earth at nighttime) —
     Gen. 1:14 — "And God said: 'Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the heaven TO DIVIDE THE DAY FROM THE NIGHT..."
     Gen. 1:16 — "And God made two GREAT LIGHTS: the GREATER LIGHT" (the Sun) "TO RULE THE DAY, and the LESSER LIGHT: (the Moon) "TO RULE THE NIGHT."

3) "...for Seasons..." (the "Four Seasons" of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter)
     Gen. 1:14 — "And God said: 'Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night...and for SEASONS..." The Sun, particularly more so then the Moon, is also used for the determination of the "Four Seasons" upon Planet Earth, in that when the Earth in it's year-long orbit around the Sun is closer to the Son and therefore more subject to the heat of the Sun, we have the warmer "Seasons" of Spring and Summer; and then when the Earth in it's year-long orbit around the Sun is farther away from the Sun, and therefore less subject to the heat of the Sun, we have the colder "Seasons" of Fall and Winter.

4) "...for Days..." (Gen. 1:14) The length of a "Day" upon Planet Earth is 24 hours (with the Sun shining LIGHT upon the Earth during the daytime and the Moon shining LIGHT upon the Earth during the nighttime) which is determined by the fact that it takes the Earth 24 hours to make one complete rotation upon it's Axis, which thus gives the length of the "Days" upon our Planet that of 24 hours.

5) "for Years..." (Gen. 1:14) The "Years" that transpire upon Planet Earth are also determined by the orbit of the Earth around the Sun (and incidentally the "Months" are also determined by the orbit of the Moon around the Earth).

It takes 365 and a quarter days for the Earth to make one complete orbit around the Sun which is what determines of the Earth "Year" of 365 days to a "Year" plus every 4th Year a 29th day is added to the month of February as a "leap day" for what is called the "Leap Year".

It takes 29.5 days for the Moon to orbit around the Earth which is what determines the length of the "Months" as each "Month" consists of either 30 or 31 days with the Month of February consisting of only 28 days except on a "Leap Year" when February is given 29 days.

6) "...for SIGNS..." Gen. 1:14 — "And God said: 'Let there be LIGHTS" (the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars) "in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and LET THEM BE FOR SIGNS..."

Let us look now at how God has used the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars for "SIGNS" in the past:

A) In Josh. 10, five kings — the Kings of the City/States of Jerusalem, Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish, and Eglon (Josh. 10:2-5) went out to battle together against Joshua and the Israeli's, as Joshua was leading the people of Israel in taking possession of the "Promised Land". In that battle God fought for the Israeli's by raining down upon the armies of those Kings "great hailstones" from the sky: Josh. 10:11 — "And it came to pass as they fled from before Israel...that the Lord cast down upon them GREAT STONES FROM HEAVEN" (from the sky) "...and they died; there mere more that died from the hailstones then they whom the Children of Israel slew..."

At that time, God also caused a "SIGN" to occur in the Sun and in the Moon: Josh. 10:12-13 — "Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the Children of Israel, and he said in the sight of all Israel: 'Sun stand thou still upon Gibeon, and thou Moon in the Valley of Ajalon.' And the Sun stood still and the Moon stayed until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies."

B) God also used a "SIGN" in the Sun in the days of King Hezekiah: In II Kings 20, God sent word to King Hezekiah from the Prophet Isaiah that he was going to die, as at that time he was "sick unto death" (II Kings 20:1). However, as king Hezekiah began to seek the Lord for healing from his sickness, God heard his prayer so that God then sent word to him by the Prophet Isaiah that God was going to add 15 more years to Hezekiah's life. When this word came to King Hezekiah, he told the Prophet Isaiah that he wanted a "SIGN" from God to verify this. And, in response, God did give him a "SIGN-In-The-SUN" by stopping the Earth's rotation on it's Axis and causing it to briefly "rotate backwards" before resuming it's normal rotation on the Axis:

II Kings 20:8-11 — "And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah: 'What shall be the SIGN that the Lord will heal me?
     "And Isaiah said: 'This SIGN shall you have of the Lord: that the Lord will do the thing which He has spoken. Shall the shadow" (on your Sundial) "go forward 10 degrees, or go back 10 degrees?'
     "And Hezekiah answered and said: 'It is a light thing for the shadow to go forward 10 degrees;" (as the daytime progresses forward) "but no, let the shadow" (on the Sundial) "go backwards 10 degrees" (which meant that the Earth had to briefly reverse it's rotation in order for the shadow on the Sundial to go backwards 10 degrees!)
     "And Isaiah the Prophet cried unto the Lord, and the Lord brought the shadow" (in the Sundial) "10 degrees backward by which it had gone down in the" (Sun) "dial of Ahaz."

C) God used a "SIGN" in the Stars at the time of the birth of Jesus Christ as "Wise Men from the East" were led to where Jesus was born by a "SIGN OF A SUPERNATURAL STAR":

     Matt. 2:1-2 — "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold there came Wise Men from the East to Jerusalem,
     "Saying: 'Where is He that is born King of the Jews? FOR WE HAVE SEEN HIS STAR IN THE EAST and have come to worship Him."
     Matt. 2:9 — "When they heard the King they departed and behold THE STAR which they had seen in the East went before them until it came and stood over where the Young Child was."

This "SIGN" of the Star that led the Wise Men to Baby Jesus was also prophesied of by the Old Testament Patriarch Levi in an apocryphal book that he wrote called The Testament Of Levi where Levi wrote in "Chapter 5" — "Verse 15" — "And His STAR shall arise in Heaven as of a King..."

D) A SIGN in the Sun that occurred when Jesus Christ was crucified is described in Matt. 27:45 — "Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour."

E) There was also a SIGN in the Sun on the same date as the funeral and entombment of Pope John Paul II, in that the Sun experienced a partial eclipse on that same day: April 8, 2005, as is documented by this news article from the Associated Press that appeared in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times:
Solar Eclipse
Fig. 2. Associated Press news article published Saturday, April 9, 2005 in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times (Credit: Associated Press/Corpus Christi Caller-Times)

On the same day that the Associated Press documented this partial eclipse of the Sun, which occurred on the same day as the Funeral of Pope John Paul II, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times also carried another headline/front page article entitled: "POPE AT REST: Thousands gather in St. Peter's Square for funeral; broadcasts bring event to millions more".

I believe that this partial "Eclipse of the Sun" occurring on the very same day as the funeral of Pope John Paul II was a "SIGN IN THE SUN" that the ministry/work of Pope John Paul II was over — was "eclipsed" — however the fact that it was only a partial Eclipse and not a total Eclipse was a SIGN that the work/ministry of the Popes & the Catholic Church was not yet totally completed.

F) Another SIGN "in the heavens" that occurred, as concerned the Catholic Church, I believe was what occurred on the date of Feb. 11, 2013 when the apex of St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican in Rome was struck by lightning, not once but twice on the same day that Pope Benedict XVI announced his retirement to become the "Emeritus Pope". I believe that this was a "SIGN FROM HEAVEN" as a warning of "end-times judgment" that was getting ready to come upon the Vatican and the Catholic Church.

So with that understanding that sometimes God does use "SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS" to warn of "end-times events" let us now look at what I believe is "END-TIMES SIGNS" in the "Blood-Red Moons" remembering that Joel 2:31 forecasts: "the Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before the Great and Terrible Day Of The Lord" (The "Great Tribulation"), which prophecy the Apostle Peter quoted 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."

In the Science of Astronomy there is what is known as a "Tetrad" which is a series of "4 Blood Moons" over a two-year period, accompanied by a total "Eclipse Of The Sun". And in making that explanation, let me also explain what it is that causes the Moon to take on a "blood-red" appearance, which occurs when it is being "eclipsed". What is known as a "Blood Moon" occurs when the Earth comes in between the Moon and the Sun and the Sun shining through the atmosphere of the Earth casts a "blood red" shadow upon the Moon, thus causing the Moon to appear as a "Blood Moon". This occurance has taken place a number of times during the history of the Earth. However, since the year IAD until next year — 2015 — there has been only a total of 8 "Tetrads" of "4 Blood Moons" which also occurred on the Jewish Feast Days of the "Feast Of Passover" (which was prophetic of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in that Jesus Christ was crucified during the Jewish "Feast Of Passover") and the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles" (which is prophetic of the future time when Jesus Christ will return to Earth to "tabernacle" among mankind).

And every time — since the year 1 AD — when there has been a "Tetrad" of "4 Blood Moons" occurring on the Jewish Feast Days of "Feast of Passover" and the "Feast of Tabernacles" there has also been a corresponding momentous event occur among the Jewish people or in the Nation of Israel.

Before we begin to look at the 8 "Tetrads" from 1 AD to 2015 let us first go back and take note of what occurred at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ when Matt. 27:45 records "Now from the sixth hour there was a darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour." What actually occurred there was the fact that there was a total "Eclipse Of The Sun" on the date of Apr. 3, 33 AD, which was the date when Christ was crucified. And interestingly, even though there was not a total "Tetrad" of "4 Total Blood Moons" accompanying that "Eclipse of the Sun", there was, however a "Tetrad" of 2 complete "Blood Moons" and 2 partial "Blood Moons" accompanying that total "Eclipse of the Sun" as follows:
     a) On the date of Apr. 4, 32 AD there was a total "Blood Moon" that occurred on the Jewish "Feast Of Passover";
     b) On the date of Oct. 7, 32 AD there was another total "Blood Moon" that occurred on the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles";
     c) On Apr. 3, 33 AD — the date Christ was crucified — there was a total "Eclipse Of the Sun" which occurred on the Jewish "Feast Of Passover";
     d) Also on the date of Apr. 3, 33 AD — the date that Christ was crucified — there was a partial "Blood Moon" (Eclipse of the Moon) that occurred the night of the day that Christ was crucified on the Jewish "Feast Of Passover";
     e) On the date of Sept. 27, 33 AD there was another partial "Blood Moon" on the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles".

This is illustrated by the following chart from "Jesus On My Mind" — "Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses":

Now let us look at the 8 "Biblical Tetrads" (called that because they concern Tetrads" that occurred on the Biblical Jewish "Feast Of Passover" and the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles").

1) The 1st "Biblical Tetrad" of "4 Blood Moons" occurred in the years 162-163 AD as follows:
     (1) On the date of Apr. 17, 162 AD — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Passover" — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (2) On the date of Oct. 11, 162 AD — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles" — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (3) On the date of Apr. 6, 163 AD — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Passover" — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (4) On the date of Sept. 30, 163 AD — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles" there was another (final) "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon.

This is illustrated by the following chart from "Jesus On My Mind" — "Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses":
Blood Moon Graph 1 — Martyrdom, Diaspora, and Great Plague
Fig. 5. Graph 1 — Martyrdom, Diaspora, and Great Plague (Graph Credit: www.bloodmoonscoming.com)
Famine, Plagues, and great persecution of the Christians and also of the Jews in the Roman Empire occurred during and after the 162-163 AD "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons". According to Foxe's Book Of Martyrs the greatest time of persecution of the Jews and Christians in the Roman Empire occurred during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius and also in the Spring of 162 AD the Tiber River which flows through the city of Rome flooded it's banks and killed most of the animals in Rome and destroyed much of the city of Rome, and also during that time the "Antonine Plague" broke out in the Roman Empire (probably God's judgment upon the Romans for their martyrdom persecution of the Jews and Christians), which killed 8 million people — 1/3 of the people in the Roman Empire. This is illustrated by the following chart from Red Moon Rapture:

2) The 2nd "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons" since the year ADI occurred in the years 795-796 AD. The dates of the "4 Blood Moons" of 795-796 AD and the Jewish Feasts that they occurred on were:
     (1) Apr. 9, 795 — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";
     (2) Oct. 3, 795 — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles";
     (3) March 28, 796 — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the Jewish "Feast of Passover";
     (4) Sept. 2, 796 — there was a total "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles",

A chart depicting the "Tetrad" of 795-796 AD as illustrated by the internet site "Jesus On My Mind" — "Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses" is as follows:
Blood Moon Graph 2 — Defeat of Muslim Empire
Fig. 7. Graph 2 — Defeat of Muslim Empire (Graph Credit: www.bloodmoonscoming.com)
During the "Tetrad" of 795-796 the Arab Muslims attempted to conquer the then-known World, killing thousands of Christians and Jews in the process, but were stopped by Emperor Charlemagne of the "Holy Roman Empire" who established a "Demilitarized Buffer Zone" between France and Spain, thus ending centuries of Arab invasions into Western Europe.

3) The 3rd "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" since the year ADI, occurred in the years of 842-843 AD and were preceeded by 4 partial "Solar Eclipses" (Eclipses of the Sun) on the dates of Dec. 20, 838 AD; May 16, 839 AD; July 15, 839 AD; and Nov. 10, 839 AD. The dates of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" and the Jewish Feast days that they coincided with are:
     (1) March 30, 842 — on this date, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover", there was a complete "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (2) Sept. 23, 842 — on this date, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles", there was a complete "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (3) March 19, 843 — on this date, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover", there was a "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon;
     (4) Sept. 12, 843 — there was another final "Blood Moon" of this particular "Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons", which was also the Jewish "Feast Of Tabernacles".

Following this "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" there was 4 partial Eclipses of the Sun on the dates of Jan. 18, 849; Apr. 16, 850; May 15, 850; and Oct. 9, 850.

Following is a chart by the internet site: "Jesus On My Mind" — "Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses" of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 842-843:

What was significant about the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 842-843 was the fact that in the year 842 the Arab Muslims, known at that time as "Saracens" (by the Italians) began a conquest of Sicily killing Christians and Jews in the process, and then 3 years later — in the year 846 — invaded Rome and "sacked" Rome stealing the rich liturgical vessels and jeweled reliquaries in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.

The "Red Moon Rapture" internet site diagrammed the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 842-843 this way:

4) The 4th "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" (occurring on Jewish Feast days) since the year 1 AD, occurred in the years of 860-861 AD, which were preceeded by 4 partial "Eclipses of the Sun" which occurred on the dates of Dec. 31, 856; May 27, 857; July 25, 857; and Nov. 21, 857. The actual "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" that occurred during that cycle were as follows:
     (1) Apr. 9, 860 — "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the Jewish Feast day of the "Feast of Passover";
     (2) Oct. 3, 860 — "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles";
     (3) March 30, 861 — "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";
     (4) Sept. 22, 861 — "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles".

Following that "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" there were 4 more partial Eclipses of the Sun on the dates of Nov. 30, 867; Apr. 26, 868; May 25, 868; and Oct. 19, 868.

The Internet site "Jesus On My Mind" — "Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses" diagrammed the 860-861 "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" as follows:
Graph 4 — Second Defeat of Muslim Empire
Fig. 10. Graph 4 — Second Defeat of Muslim Empire (Graph Credit: www.bloodmoonscoming.com)
The manifestation of the "4 Blood Moons" of 860-861 coincided with the Greeks of the Byzantine Empire (the Eastern Roman Empire) permanently stopping the Arab Islamic Invasion of Eastern Europe. That kept the Muslim/Islam religion confined to Asia Minor (Turkey) and the Middle East, thus allowing the continued spread of Christianity in Europe, which also resulted in allowing the Jews to live in relative security, as the Byzantine Empire defeated the Arab armies at the Battle of Lalakaon in Turkey.

5) The 5th "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" (occurring on Jewish Feast Days) since the year 1 AD, occurred in the years of 1493-1494 as follows:
     (1) There was a "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon on the date of April 2, 1493, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";
     (2) There was a total "Eclipse of the Sun" on the date of Sept. 24, 1493;
     (3) There was a 2nd "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon on the date of Sept. 25, 1493 — 1 day after the total "Eclipse of the Sun" — which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles";
     (4) There was a "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon on the date of March 22, 1494, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Passover";
     (5) There was a final "Blood Moon" Eclipse of the Moon on the date of Sept. 15, 1494, which was also the date of the Jewish "Feast of Tabernacles".

This is diagrammed by the internet site "Red Moon Rapture" as follows:

Fig. 11. Timeline of the Catholic Spanish Inquisition during Jewish lunar eclipses (Timeline Credit: www.redmoonrapture.com)
The significant thing that occurred that concerned the Jewish people in the years of 1493-1494 was that in Spain the Roman Catholic Church instituted the "Spanish Inquisition" against the Jews of Spain in which they confiscated the goods of the Jews, put many Jews to death, forced Jews to live in separate isolated quarters, and then on the date of "the 9th of Av" (Aug. 1, 1492) — 1 year before the "Blood Moons" began occurring in the years 1493-1494 — King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, signed a Decree known as the "Edict Of Expulsion" requiring all Jews to leave Spain, which "expulsion" took place during the same years as the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1493-1494.

Another significant event that occurred during the years of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of the years 1493-1494 was the fact that Christopher Columbus from Spain, discovered the Americas in the year 1492, 1 year before the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1493-1494 began occurring, which set the stage for the later colonization of North America by Pilgrim settlers from Europe to come to North America and establish the Nation of the United States of America, which has become the "launching pad" of the Gospel to all other nations of the Earth in "World-Evangelism" which is fulfilling the "end-time prophecy" of Jesus Christ given in Matt. 24:14 — "And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached as a witness to all Nations and then the End shall come."

Christopher Columbus
Fig. 12. Christopher Columbus (Photo Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
In making the discovery of the Americas, Christopher Columbus felt that he was helping to fulfill that Scripture as he saw his discovery of the Western World primarily as a matter of helping to spread the Christian Religion, as in his "Book Of Prophecies" Christopher Columbus wrote that Christianity must be spread throughout the whole World and when it is, then Jesus will return.

Not only has America been the "launching pad" of the Gospel to the entire World, as Christopher Columbus foresaw it, but America has also been a haven for the Jews to escape the "Inquisition" in Europe and to also escape the "Holocaust" persecution and extermination of the Jews by Adolf Hitler in the years around World War II, in that there are some 5 million Jews living in America. America has also been a great benefactor to the Nation of Israel and, in fact, was greatly responsible for the establishing of the modern Nation of Israel, which occurred in the next "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1949-1950, which I will explain in "Part 2" of this End-Times Trumpet article on The Blood Moons and The Pope.

In next month's End-Times Trumpet I will explain the prophetic significance of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of the years 1949-1950 and the prophetic significance of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of 1967-1968, and the prophetic significance of the "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" of the present 2014-2015, and the relationship of the Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI and the relationship of the current Pope Francis to this present "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons" (which the "Catholic Era of Church History" is what is portrayed by the prophetical "Church Of Thyatira" of Rev. 2, that I will examine next) that began on the date of Apr. 15, which was the manifestation of the 1st of the "4 Blood Moons" of this present "Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons", which I believe is a definite "end-times" SIGN-IN-THE-HEAVENS" pointing to the soon-returning of Jesus Christ.
