Blood Moon Over Phoenix

So...if you live in the Americas...did you happen to look up at the night sky and see the "Blood Moon" last night?

I did.

And I must say it did create in me a sense of awe and wonder!

In the creation account in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, it says:

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness.

And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

Last night's Blood Moon (a complete lunar eclipse as it passed through the Earth's shadow), is the first of four, called a tetrad, that will take place over the next year.
Dates of Biblical prophecy Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015

"These are the dates for the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses – in these years.


Total lunar eclipse: April 14-15
Total lunar eclipse: October 8


Total lunar eclipse: April 4
Total lunar eclipse: September 28

There are a total of 8 tetrads in the 21st century (2001 to 2100). But proponents of this Biblical prophecy regard the upcoming tetrad as especially significant because it coincides with two important Jewish holidays:
The April 2014 and April 2015 total lunar eclipses align with the feast of Passover. 

The October 2014 and September 2015 total lunar eclipses align with the feast of Tabernacles

Many theologians have noted that while Blood Moons have occurred very rarely through-out history, when the do many have noted that there are corresponding changes to events on earth."

The Blood Moon from my porch, Jephyr, 4-15-14

John Hagee's Book, "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change" points out that the discovery of America, the emergence of Israel as a nation, 9-11, and other major world events have all coincided with blood moon tetrads.
In addition, I've read through an old book called The Witness of the Stars by E. W. Bullinger where he systematically goes through the night sky astronomy, presenting charts and diagrams and referencing what we can learn from what was passed down through oral and written traditions, and comparing the names we now have for stars and constellations, with what we can know from ancient Arabic and Babylonian writings.
Bullinger makes it clear that what we see in the night sky is speaking to us...if we will only listen.
So it was with a real sense of wonder, that I spent some time looking at the Blood Moon in the sky over my home...and snapped a photo or two to share here: 
 Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The Blood Moon eclipse was really fantastic, and had special significance since it fell on the night of Passover. Unfortunately, it dropped to 23 degrees here in west Texas - so I was compelled to stay indoors and observe the eclipse from a window.

    1. Hi Jon! Long time no see! :) Yeppez...four Blood Moons in 2014 / 2015, all falling on major Jewish Holidays is significant to a lot of folks...who are also looking at other major events taking place in our world.

      BTW...23 degrees! That's TOO cold...I woulda stayed in too! :) Hope all is well!
