When President Obama announced a “framework” nuclear agreement with Iran – which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warns threatens the very existence of his nation – few noticed the significance of the date.
On the Jewish calendar this year, April 1 coincided with Nisan 13, the date in history when a Persian king signed an agreement calling for the destruction of the Jews.
“King Obama has issued his decree putting the Jewish nation at risk of annihilation on the very same day that King Ahasuerus’ scribes came together and issued their statement to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language and sent letters by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day.”

They have seized the public’s attention. What does the Bible really say? The answer may surprise you.
In case you have not yet heard about blood moons, here is what’s going on.
This past April 15, the first of four unusual lunar eclipses began. They will occur at approximately six-month intervals—the next being October 8, then April 4 and September 28 of next year—and will be visible across North America. Astronomers call this a lunar eclipse tetrad. The last tetrad occurred over 2003 and 2004. Eight more such tetrads will occur before the year 2100.
Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (nasa) consider the most notable thing about the current tetrad is the fact that all four eclipses will be visible to most Americans, assuming the weather cooperates.
However, a large portion of the American public is keenly interested in the tetrad for more than the artistry created by night sky astral body dancing.
Two bestselling, prophecy-leaning authors believe the tetrad is directly related to a prophecy found in Joel 2:31: “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes” (English Standard Version). These two men and their books—Blood Moons by Mark Biltz, and Four Blood Moons by John Hagee—have received widespread media attention because of the fervor and alarm they have created among religious-minded people.
Is it possible this astronomical event has something to do with dramatic end-time prophetic events? The answer may surprise you. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
