It’s highly recommended that you see this previous post for a great thorough explanation from a historical and Biblical context. The 20th should look quite interesting being that things are even more heated in the Middle East. The Obama administration is doing everything it can to keep Netanyahu from being reelected, including meddling in foreign affairs of an ally by sending political hit squads (among possibly threatening to shoot down Israeli war planes) which means he might have to strike Iran beforehand, otherwise a new incoming Israeli administration could be suicidally complacent and be attacked.
Could this bring war? Maybe. Could this bring an economic collapse of America? Maybe. What exactly will happen, if something does, is an unknown and is for God to determine. We do know, however, that the entire world over is in dire straits and is one event away from catastrophe.
Also, don’t forget “Israel” doesn’t mean the nation of Israel from a Biblical context. It applies to the lost tribes of Israel that in modern times include such nations as the United States, Great Britain and Australia, for example. Knowing the difference between “Israel” and “Judah”, for example, is key in today’s times. More information can be found on this HERE.
The total solar eclipse on March 20th falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar. According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment. And this has certainly been true in the past. For example, there was a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 in 70 AD. Later that year, the Romans attacked Jerusalem and completely destroyed the Temple. What makes all of this even more interesting is the fact that the solar eclipse on March 20th falls right in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, and it also happens to fall during the Shemitah year. If you are not a believer, you may be tempted to dismiss all of this as some sort of extremely bizarre coincidence. If you are a believer, you also might be skeptical. But by the end of this article, at least you will understand what so many people are talking about right now.
In the Scriptures, we are told that God created the sun and the moon, and that he intended for them to act as “signs”. The following comes from Genesis chapter one…
As I mentioned above, when a solar eclipse falls on Nisan 1 it is traditionally considered to be a sign that judgment is coming to the world…
“Our Rabbis taught, when the sun is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for the whole world. This may be illustrated by a parable. To what can this be compared? To a human being who made a banquet for his servants and put up for them a
lamp. When he became wroth with them he said to his servant, ‘Take away the lamp from them, and let them sit in
the dark’. It was taught: R. Meir said, whenever the luminaries [moon] are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished. Our Rabbis taught, When the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by the moon and idolaters by the sun…”
Of course Jewish tradition is not Scripture, but it is very interesting to note.
And what we do know is that we have seen this kind of pattern before.
On Nisan 1 in 70 AD, there was a total solar eclipse. But that was not the only eclipse during that time period. In fact, there were a whole series of eclipses that took place on key Biblical dates before and after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.
The following information comes from a book authored by Pastor Mark Biltz entitled “Blood Moons“…
October 18, 69 AD (Sukkot): partial solar eclipse
March 30, 70 AD (Nisan 1): total solar eclipse
April 14, 70 AD (Passover): penumbral lunar eclipse
Temple destroyed 9th of Av, 70 AD
September 21, 70 AD (Rosh Hashanah): annual solar eclipse
October 8, 70 AD (Sukkot): penumbral lunar eclipse
March 4, 71 AD (Purim): partial lunar eclipse
March 20, 71 AD (Nisan 1): hybrid solar eclipse
September 12, 71 AD (Rosh Hashanah): hybrid solar eclipse
Now we find ourselves in the middle of a similar series of eclipses.
