Spectacular pictures of tonight’s once every 150 year sighting of a super blue blood red moon, also seen in an eclipse throughout Asia.
What is a Blood Moon?
A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and the moon. This blocks the sun’s rays from reflecting off the moon as normal. However, some of the sun’s rays curve around the earth causing the moon to appear red during a total eclipse. Because of its vivid color, a total lunar eclipse is often referred to by NASA as a Blood Red Moon. The occurrence of blood moons is quite common, normally happening at least twice per year. Most of us have seen the moon when its appearance has changed to red. When four blood moons happen in close succession, NASA refers to this as a tetrad. Tetrads are rather rare, only taking place fifty-five times since 1 AD.
The Teaching of the 4 Blood Moons
The teaching of the four blood moons has recently captivated the attention of the religious world. This teaching states that, when four consecutive blood moons fall on Jewish feast days, a major event affecting the Jewish people will occur in close proximity to that time.
This phenomenon of four consecutive blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days has only occurred ten times since 1 AD and only three times since 1492 AD. The three times since 1492 are as follows:
Tetrad of 1493-1494
Tetrad of 1949-1950
Tetrad of 1967-1968
Major events affecting the Jewish people have occurred in close proximity to all three of these tetrads.
The Prophecy of the Moon being Turned Into Blood
There are several prophecies foretelling that the moon will be turned to blood in the endtime.
Joel 2:30-31 states: “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”
Revelation 6:12 also prophesies that the moon will become as blood: “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.”
Sadly my two photographs of it taken tonight here in Glastonbury didn’t have the same lovely red glow to them. The first was taken at 21:00 hours above Glastonbury Tor, super bright and beautiful as Grandmother Moon was and the second image was taken over The Jesias Temple of the Silver Rose at 22:30 hours also here in Avalon.
