Might tomorrow’s blood moon have massive prophetic significance?

BNP Cover JAN-MAR 2014


Tomorrow is the first of two ‘blood moons’ expected this year.

NASA’s website predicts a total lunar eclipse will occur on the 4th of April 2015. The Red Moon eclipse coincides with the Jewish Passover holiday…(http://redmoonrapture.com/2014-2015/2015-passover-eclipse.html viewed 10/09/13)

The dates related to Passover are late by a couple of days and not truly the biblical ones, but align with the Days of Unleavened Bread (see Holy Day Calendar). In 2014, someone once part of the old Worldwide Church of God assured me that these blood moons must have massive prophetic significance–while indicating that the final one in 2015 remotely might, I assured him that the others did not.

Other have disagreed, but so far, they have been wrong.  Protestant ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz have suggested 2015 as a possible date for Jesus return and that this could be tied to a blood moon.  They also indicated 2014, and nothing of massive prophetic importance like they seemingly indicated happened.  Protestants who claim a pre-tribulation rapture will occur on a blood moon this year are wrong.

While we are in the last days, and probably in the time that Jesus referred to as the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24:4-8), there is no possible way that Jesus will return in 2015. Actually, I do not believe it is biblically possible that Jesus will return before 2022.


Because too many events, including some with specific time periods associated with them have not yet began.

For one, the ‘peace deal’ of Daniel 9:27 has not yet been confirmed for seven years (a prophetic week), and Jesus does not return until seven years after that deal is confirmed.

Also, notice various events Jesus said needed to happen:

9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. (Matthew 24:9-22)

The above events have not yet been fulfilled.

As far as Jesus returning, notice that the Bible also teaches:

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:29-31)

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

And since that tribulation cannot start for at over 3 1/2 years from now, then there are another 3 1/2 years, etc., this means that Jesus will not return before 2022.

A Messianic Jewish Rabbi named Jonathan Cahn was interviewed by Pat Robertson on CBN on 02/05/2013). Jonathan Cahn is probably most well know for a novel he wrote called The Harbinger. He has since wrote other books and has indicated potential prophetic importance of blood moons in 2015.

The interview screen later showed something that resembled two Power Point slides, apparently from Jonathan Cahn or one of his books. The first had the following information:




The second had the following information:




Now if by tribulation, Jonathan Cahn meant the Great Tribulation, then it is not at all possible to begin then. I have gone over this before in various articles and videos, and I have directly debunked the hypotheses of the Great Tribulation beginning in 2014 or 2015 (see When Will the Great Tribulation Begin? 2015, 2016, or 2017?).

On the other hand, if the seven-year deal of Daniel 9:27 is confirmed then (see also The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27), then the seven-year period some Protestants call the ‘tribulation,’ with the “Great Tribulation” starting 3 1/2 years later, it is possible September 2015.

Speaking of September 2015, there are some events scheduled for then:

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, has welcomed the pending visit to U.N. Headquarters by Pope Francis, scheduled for September 25…

Ban said … “The Secretary-General welcomes the visit of Pope Francis as an important part of a historic year in which the United Nations marks its 70th anniversary.”

He noted it is a year in which the members of the United Nations will take major decisions about sustainable development, climate change and the future peace and well-being of humankind.” …

During the visit, the Pope will address the U.N. General Assembly, hold meetings with Ban and the President of the General Assembly, as well as participate in a town hall gathering with United Nations staff.  …

While in the United States in September, Francis will also address a joint session of U.S. Congress in Washington.

In Philadelphia Pope Francis will attend the World Meeting of Families around Sept. 26, which he has chosen as the primary cause of his journey. http://www.ecumenicalnews.com/article/pope-to-address-un-and-congress-during-us-visit-28769#ixzz3Uw1gMdE5

Somewhat related to all of this, a reader sent me a link to a popular YouTube video that basically claims that since Pope Francis is scheduled to come to the USA in September, meet with US President Obama, speak before US Congress, and speak before the United Nations, that this is the start of a one-world government and the beginning of a seven-year tribulation.  As I have been writing as well as speaking on the radio, unless the deal of Daniel 9:27 (see The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27) is confirmed this September, which looks unlikely at this stage, the final seven-years before Jesus returns will not start in September 2015.

Jesus is coming, as is the Great Tribulation, but Protestants, Laodiceans, and others who overlook certain scriptures will tend not to know when.

It is from the Bible that we in the Continuing Church of God can “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed” (2 Peter 1:19, KJV).

Tomorrow’s blood moon simply does NOT have massive biblical significance.  Also consider:

2 Thus says the Lord:

“Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;
Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,
For the Gentiles are dismayed at them. (Jeremiah 10:2)

Although the Bible does tell of a prophetic time involving the moon turning to blood, it is not an event that possibly can occur in 2015.  Do not be dismayed as many are.

The Laodicean Church Era has been predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. The Laodiceans are non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG or its offshoots.  They do not properly understand the work or biblical prophecies and will face the Great Tribulation if they do not repent.
