The Blood Moons And Middle-East War
by Pastor/Evangelist Len Hutsell
This article has been viewed 1449 times.

One of the “signs” of the “last days” and of the coming of the Lord foretold in the Bible is that found in Joel 2:31 — “The Sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD comes.”

This prophecy of “the Moon turning to blood” (turning blood-red) and “the Sun being darkened” is reaffirmed by the Apostle Peter 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 comes.”

The fact that this Prophecy is given twice in the Scriptures and the fact that in both cases this is foretold to occur before the great and notable” (“terrible”) “DAY OF THE LORD comes” shows that this occurrence was to take place just before the time of the “GREAT TRIBULATION” (Matt. 24:21) (which “Great Tribulation” is — over and over in the prophetic Scripture — referred to as the “Day Of The Lord” — note: Joel 2:1), and according to much Biblical teaching the “GREAT TRIBULATION” is not to occur until after the event of the “Rapture Of The Church” (I Thess. 4:14-17) takes place.

Also connected with this prophecy of “the Sun being darkened” and “the Moon turning to blood” (turning blood-red) is the fact that these events are also to be connected with “warfare” in the Middle East as is seen by the previous Verse in Joel — Joel 2:30 — “And I will show wonders in the heavens” (the atmosphere/the sky) “and in the Earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke.” This is also foretold in Acts 2:19 — “And I will show wonders in the heaven” (the atmosphere/the sky) “above and signs in the Earth beneath: blood and fire and vapour of smoke.” These words: “blood and fire and vapour of smoke” (as given by Peter in Acts) or: “blood and fire and pillars of smoke” (as given by Joel) are speaking prophetically of warfare in the Middle East that was to be occurring around the same time as the manifestation of “the Sun being darkened” and “the Moon turning to blood” (turning blood-red). And the fact that this is also foretold to occur “before the great and terrible” (“notable”) “DAY OF THE LORD” (the “GREAT TRIBULATION”) shows us that when these events begin to occur that this is a “sign” of “the last days” and of “the coming of the Lord” and of the time of the “Great Tribulation” that is to follow the coming of the Lord.

I believe that the events foretold in these prophetic Scriptures began to be fulfilled with the manifestation of a “Blood Moon” on the date of April 15, 2014 which was the 1st of 4 “Blood Moons” (a “Tetrad of Blood Moons”) which were to occur on the dates of April 15, 2014 and Oct. 8, 2014 and April 4, 2015 and Sept. 28, 2015. It is also interesting to note that the dates of the “Blood Moons” of April 15, 2014 (which has already occurred) and April 4, 2015 also coincide with the Jewish “Feasts Of Passover” and the “Blood Moons” of Oct. 8, 2014 (which has already occurred) and Sept. 28, 2015 coincide with the Jewish “Feast Of Tabernacles”

The “Sun being darkened” is also scheduled to occur within the time frame of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” on the date of March 20, 2015 when the Sun will experience a total “Solar Eclipse” which will also be the same date of the Jewish “New Year For Kings”, and interestingly there will also be a partial eclipse of the Sun (“Solar Eclipse”) on the date of Sept. 13, 2015 (before the final “Blood Moon” — on the date of Sept. 28, 2015 — of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” ) which will also be the date of the Jewish “Feast Of Trumpets” (which is prophetic of the event of the “Rapture Of The Church”). These occurrences are illustrated by the following graph from “Red Moon Rapture”:

Jewish Comet and Tetrad Red Blood Moon Eclipses
Fig. 2. "2014-2015 Jewish Comet and Tetrad Red Blood Moon Eclipses" (Photo Credit: www.redmoonrapture.com)
The 1st of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” — which has already occurred — occurred on the date of April 15, 2014 which was also the same date as the Jewish “Feast Of Passover” and it is to be noted that “Passover” is identified with “blood-shed” in that at the very first “Passover” (at the time of the Jews Exodus from Egypt) that blood of lambs was shed as each Jewish family was to kill a lamb (thereby “shedding its blood”) and smear the blood of the lamb over the top of the doorways of their houses and on each side of the doorway (Ex. 12:2-13). It is also interesting to note that Jesus Christ was put to death by crucifixion (whereby His “blood was shed”) on the annual date of the Jewish Passover (Matt. 26:18). Thus we note that “Passover” is connected with “blood-shed” and it is therefore interesting to note that the Moon becoming “blood-red” at Passover on the date of April 15, 2014 seemed, therefore, to be prophetic of “blood-shed” that was soon to occur in the Middle East to fulfill the prophecy of “blood and fire and pillars of smoke” foretold by “the Moon being turned to blood” (turning “blood-red”) on the date of April 15, 2014.

It seems that this prophecy of “blood and fire and pillars of smoke” — to accompany “the Moon turned to blood” — was fulfilled in the Middle East War that took place between Israel and the militant Hamas Muslim Arabs in the Gaza Strip on the dates of July 8, 2014 through August 27, 2014 which resulted in over 2100 Palestinians being killed and a property loss of 17,000 Gaza housing units being destroyed or severely damaged.

A days-to-day account of the Israeli/Gaza/Hamas War — as reported by “PeoplePC News” — is as follows:

Wed. July 9, 2014 — “Israel Steps Up Offensive As Diplomacy Kicks Off”

(Note that this Israeli/Gaza/Hamas War came about as a response of the Nation of Israel to 3 Israeli teenagers being captured and then killed by Hamas on the date of June 12, 2014) — “Israel hit more than 300 targets and Hamas positions throughout Gaza including rocket-launchers, weapons-storage sites, and tunnels; 74 rockets fired by Hamas landed in Israel.” — Palestinian death toll: 75.

Fri. July 11, 2014 — “Israel Leader: ‘World Pressure Won’t Stop Offensive” / “Over 100 Killed In Gaza As Rockets Fall On Israel”
     “The Israeli military says it hit more than 1100 targets, mostly what it identified as rocket-launching sites. Rocket fire continued in earnest from Gaza toward various locations in southern and central Israel.” — Palestinian death toll rose to 106 including dozens of civilians.

Sat. July 12, 2014 — “Israel Widens Air-Attack, Gaza Death Toll Tops 124” / “Israel Responds To Rocket Fire From North” / “UN Calls For Israeli-Palestinian Cease-Fire”
      “Israeli soldiers on a mobile artillery unit fire a shell toward Gaza at a position on the Israeli- Gaza border, Saturday, July 12, 2014. Israeli air strikes overnight targeting Hamas in Gaza hit a Mosque, its military said concealed the militant group’s weapons, in an offensive that showed no signs of slowing down. Israel launched its campaign five days ago to stop relentless rocket fire on its civilians. While there have been no fatalities in Israel, Palestinian officials said overnight attacks raised the death toll there to over 120, with more than 920 wounded.”
     “Israel widened its air assault against the Gaza Strip’s Hamas rulers on Saturday, hitting a Mosque, Hamas-affiliated charities, and an Islamic home for the disabled…”
     “Palestinians said the death toll from the five-day offensive rose to over 125.”

Sun. July 13, 2014 — “Israeli Strike Kills 18, Stirs Debate Over Targets” / “Thousands Of Palestinians Flee Northern Gaza”
     “The target was the Gaza Police Chief. He survived the Israeli air strike on a cousin’s home with critical injuries, but 18 family members were killed, including 5 children and teens.”
     “The UN Office For Humanitarian Affairs said Sunday that civilians made up the majority of Palestinian casualties over the past six days — 133 of 168 killed and nearly half of more than 1100 wounded.”
     “Hamas, an Islamic militant group sworn to Israel’s destruction, has remained defiant, and it continued to fire Rockets into Israel throughout the day.”

Tues. July 15, 2014 — “Netanyahu Says Israel Will Hit Hamas Hard” / “AP Interview: Israel’s Peres Defends Airstrikes” / “Israel: Hamas To Pay Price For It’s ‘No’ To Truce”
     “Israel halted its fire for 6 hours Tuesday after accepting an Egyptian Truce Proposal. But with Hamas continuing to launch Rockets into Israel, it resumed strikes in the afternoon.” Palestinian death toll reaches 197; 1 Israeli killed; nearly 1500 Palestinians wounded in War so far.

Thur. July 17, 2014 — “Israel Invades Gaza After Hamas Rejects Truce” “The heavy ‘thud’ of tank shells, often just seconds apart, echoed across the Gaza Strip early Friday as thousands of Israeli soldiers launched a ground invasion, escalating a 10-day campaign of heavy air bombardment to try to destroy Hamas rocket-firing abilities.” Palestinian death toll reaches 240.

Israeli troops pushed deeper into Gaza on Friday to destroy rocket launching sites and tunnels, firing volleys of tank shells and clashing with Palestinian fighters in a high-stakes ground offensive meant to weaken the enclave’s Hamas rulers. If Israel and the Palestinian militants of Hamas can agree on one point, it seems, it’s that things have to change.” — AP/PeoplePC News

Sat. July 19, 2014 — “Israeli Bulldozers Destroy Hamas Tunnels In Gaza”
     “Israeli bulldozers on Saturday demolished more than a dozen tunnels that the military said were being used by Hamas to sneak beneath the southern border of the Jewish State and carry out attacks on soldiers and civilians.”
     "The Israeli “military said it has hit more than 2500 targets in Gaza including 1100 Rocket-launchers during the 12 days of fighting. Gaza militants have fired more than 1760 Rockets at Israel since July 8.”

Tues. July 22, 2014 — “Gaza Rocket Lands Near Israel’s Main Airport”

From the analysis of this Israeli/Hamas War in the Gaza Strip it can be seen, without a doubt, that all of this “blood-shed” seemed to definitely be foretold by the “blood-red” of the “Blood Moon” of the date of April 15, 2014 — the 1st of the “Blood Moons” of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons”.

Operation Protective Edge
Fig. 24. Total Eclipse of the Moon October 8, 2014 (Illustration Credit: www.eclipsewise.com)
The 2nd of the “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” of the current “Lunar Tetrad” occurred in the early morning hours of Oct. 8, 2014 which, in Corpus Christi, Texas, began at 4:15 AM. By about 5:45 AM the Eclipse was complete, as my wife — Esther — and I got up to watch it. As the Moon finished being eclipsed by the Earth’s shadow, it became an orangeish- red color (which is why it was called a “Blood Moon”). Space.com stated: “Lunar Eclipses occur when the full Moon passes through Earth’s shadow. Instead of blotting out the Moon entirely, the Moon turns a rusty color because of the way light from the Sun seeps through the Planet’s shadow.”

Documenting the “Blood Moon” of Oct. 8, 2014 Space.com stated: “The full Moon took on a spooky red hue in a pre-dawn total Lunar Eclipse Wednesday (Oct. 8) to the delight of sky watchers who managed to snap stunning photos of the ’Blood Moon’.
     “The total Lunar Eclipse of Oct. 8 was visible to observers in North America, western South America, parts of east Asia, Australia, and other parts of the Pacific. The Lunar Eclipse is also the second of four consecutive total Eclipses of the Moon that make up a unique ’Tetrad’.”

The fact that this Oct. 8, 2014 “Blood Moon” occurred on the 8th day of the month of October, 2014 may be significant in that the number “8” in the Bible is the “number of new beginnings”, thus I wonder what “new beginning” may be occurring? Also significant is the fact that this Oct. 8, 2014 “Blood Moon” occurred on the same day as the Jewish “Feast Of Tabernacles” (which is prophetic of the Lord Jesus Christ coming back to “tabernacle” among men). It is also interesting to note that this particular “Full-Moon” that was “Eclipsed” on Oct. 8, 2014 was also called a “Hunter’s Moon”, which according to “EarthSky” is
2014 Theatrical release poster for Nicolas Cage movie Left Behind
Fig. 26. 2014 Theatrical release poster for Nicolas Cage movie Left Behind (Photo and Caption Credit: www.wikipedia.org)
“the name for the full Moon after the Harvest Moon”. Also the fact that the Oct. 8, 2014 “Blood Moon” occurred just shortly before “Halloween” (a Satanic holiday) may also be significant! It may also be prophetically significant that the prophetic movie Left Behind was also being shown in Theatres during the same period of time in which the Oct. 8, 2014 'Blood Moon' Eclipse Of The Moon occurred.

Whereas the 1st “Blood Moon” of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” occurred on the date of April 15, 2014 which shortly thereafter was the occurrences of (1) “The Israeli-Palestinian Peace Talks Collapsing” on the date of April 23, 2014, (2) “Pope Francis inserting himself into the Israeli/Palestinian Peace Process” on the date of May 25, 2014 (3) “Israel launching warfare upon Gaza-Hamas” on the date of July 7, 2014, causes me to wonder what significant events may follow this 2nd “Blood Moon” of the current “Tetrad Of 4 Blood Moons” of the date of Oct. 8, 2014. Could it be the event of the 'Rapture' as is portrayed by the movie Left Behind. We wait to see, for what I have listed in this article is what has occurred so far during the manifestation of the 'Blood Moons' of 2014.
