REVELATION 6:12, 15; JOEL 2:31; ACTS 2:20; MATTHEW 24:29, 30; ISAIAH 13:10

I've been seeing this a lot on facebook, at this website, and some other places. Don't understand why all of the sudden this is being brought up because the first occurrence of the moon turning into blood  happened in May 19, 1780. 

A little background on the dark day. It happened in the Northern Hemisphere of the world (specifically in New England and Eastern Canada.) Around noon, everything went pitch black and that night the moon was red as blood. It's called dual application of prophecy. 

We touched based on the basics of the prophecy that supposedly been fulfilled. now do you think these occurrences will happen of those dates, and why on those specific dates?

Love the picture...yes they are signs Jesus is coming soon.....Question is, are we ready ? Do we hear the still small voice of Jesus via the Holy Spirit in our conscience ? Talking to us ? Are we reading our Bibles and learning to be made humble ? Are we practicing a fast every Sabbath? Do we ask for Jesus meekness to flow through us ?

The second coming of Jesus is of little avail without the daily coming of Jesus into our soul....

Time is running out...

Now is the day of salvation


Thanks for your response, Rob.  The first occurrence will happen soon. So do you think that dual prophecy will happen again by the sun turning into darkness before the moon turning into blood? 


I agree "Now is the day of salvation"

No one knows when their last breath will be on this earth.

Isaiah 45:22-24, "Turn to me and be saved,
    all you ends of the earth;
    for I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn,
    my mouth has uttered in all integrity
    a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
    by me every tongue will swear.
24 They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone
    are deliverance and strength."

Zechariah 1:3, "Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Return to me,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the Lord Almighty."

Joel 2:12-13, "“Even now,” declares the Lord,
    “return to me with all your heart,
    with fasting and weeping and mourning.”

13 Rend your heart
    and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God,
    for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
    and he relents from sending calamity."

James 4:7-10, "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."

sorry   i see no eveidence any of this has  any prophetic significance.. / the redness of the moon Blood red is not something that occours every few years or of what value would their be in end time prophecy fullfillment?  IF  this event occours regualrly  then it can be determened that the bible can be interpeted anyway others see it yes or no? . The prohetic term the moon would turn to Blood had to come to pass soon after the falling of the stars or it is not in line  with true prophecy fulfillment at all/ .. 

  Are u going to grasp at straws then and say the Moon will appear as blood again and again and this too has  a part in end time prophecy?  I sorry  but if this is so   then their also other propheytic signs also that can be reinterpeted to mean what is never meant to be and throw  Gods  People off chasing Rinbows in th  sky.

 The time of Jesus first appearance was shown in he  bible clearly but the leaders of  he  people  did not see it  because it did not fit their interpetation of the  event. Instead  they seen the interpetation of Jesus returning to this earth the second time and determined in their minds that this how the messiah would come to this earth the  first time//

 ARE  we too going to be misledby everything we see that others place in our path concerning Jesus return when he warned us time and time again their would be fals Chriss and  great signs and wonders too and devils  doing miracles but  it was not of Him .

 When u have Christ  living in u  and your listening to The Holy  Spirit speak to u  and not allowing Him to be drowned out by nonsence and cares and pressures that this life is throwing  upon our path  and I know  it is difficult at times to listen  but it is  a necesity toshut out the other sounds u be hearing and even seeing and reason  or wrestle with God untill u can hear His voice clearer // . This is  my hope at least  and u be free to believe whatever  else u see and hear and trust me   their is soooo much confusion out their passing for the genuine it going to becoe even harde  to destinguish the genuine  from the counterfeit If u do not stop the spinning of time long enough to listen to the ( Voice OF Truth )

I agree with you Uncle M., especially, when those events are linked to the tribulations and not to some specific jewish feast-days..

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.”Matthew 24:29. “But in those days, after the tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall be shaken.” Mark 13:24, 25. We think there can be no mistake that in these scriptures our Lord refers to the papal tribulation of Daniel the prophet. The signs of his second coming were to commence “in those days,” but “after that tribulation.” In other words, the 1260 prophetic days should not be quite over, but their tribulation should be ended, when the sun should be darkened. The sun was darkened in 1780, and the tribulation of those days was then past, but the days did not expire till 1798. Thus we have the signs of our Lord’s immediate advent just opening upon us, as we come down to the time of the end, the period when the vision should be unsealed, and many run to and fro with the word of warning to a perishing world. LIFIN 225.2


Choose a list and i am sure you will find a lot of moon eclipses (sounds not like a "Twilight" and "Harry Potter"-"bloodmoon" anymore) during a jewish feast day or during a special historical world-event.

I am sorry Uncle, surely theories of faith is any of us have, nobody can claim to have all truth except Jesus, the one who is truth....we live by faith, not fullest evidence....electricity is still and remains in Science as a theory of faith, yet many regard the convenience of electrical power as a fact....pity we do not treat Jesus power the same...

Like any theory of faith, treat them as a grain of salt, and test them....I suggest you study El Shaddai ministries first...the probability of a tetrad happening is very rare, like once  every 100 years ! There are 4 tetrads , two for 2014 and two for 2015, the next such event doesn't happen for dozens of years into the future...

Bible texts on this ?

Ac 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

This tetrad happened in Paul's time...

Re 6:12 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;
 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

This tetrad happened in EGW time, around 1733 if I remember?

Joe 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Very convincing text yes ? This tetrad is yet to happen, and while the 2014 -2015 is perhaps a WARNING sign or as El Shaddai ministries says a WATCHING sign, I tend to believe God will force a blood moon during the loud cry experience, just before Jesus comes !

Not all events in the Bible follow physical motions of the sun and moon, the long day for example was I tend to believe a forced event...not a natural the blood moon sign is valid, yes....but not something to begin date setting for Jesus second coming...

The daily coming is more important...for us...too many of us are asleep.....

Hope this helps


Well I may have to disagree with you Rob. First of all, Ellen White was born in the year 1827. She did not lived in the 1770s. in my initial post, I dated 1780. Secondly, other blood moons happened in 2008.

Sorry to say, Paul was making a prediction about the future.

Well, if you read the article, it mentions that there are a lot of Christians believes that is linked to End Times Prophecy. This has nothing to do with Jewish Feasts at all.

Gabriel I did say If I you made me look up Bible readings for the home circle, I have the 1916 edition, and on page315 it says the dark day occurred in 1780and the starry event in 1833...

Well some of my memory was of course EGW the events...if I remember...tells you I may have forgotten the date...1733 was supposed to be 1833...oh well...

Ac 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

Your saying Paul was making a prediction, and it didn't happen ?

Ac 2:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The men who spoke that day, were speaking as if the events predicted actually happened in their time? Do you not consider that Jesus could have come in their time ? But the church lost their first love, hence the second coming was postponed....

quote Secondly, other blood moons happened in 2008.

yes but they are not tetrads, a tetrad is a blood moon falling on a Jewish feast day....

I get the impression you do not consider Hebrew feasts relevant to Hebrew Christians today living in Jesus love?

Did not EGW keep the feast of Atonement correctly on the Hebrew time correctly in1844?

That my friend makes her and her Millerite people feast keepers? with some present truth...

Another point, is the Lord's Supper an ordinance ?


Please provide me evidence that the Millerites and Ellen White were "Feast Keepers"

The First Communion is not a Jewish ordinance. The Passover ended when Christ instituted the first communion on the night he was betrayed. 

Gabriel if a person prays, mediates and thinks of Jesus at an appointed time "mow'ed" as the Bible tells them to, than they are by definition keeping the Feast....and that's what they did in 1844 at the precise day and hour....especially for the Day of I correct in saying this ? Do you agree they kept the Day of Atonement as the Hebrew feast says they should ?

As for Passover, listen to Scriptures

Mt 26:26 ¶ And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

Jesus was sharing the Passover with his disciples, this same day begins tonight April 14,

and notice He makes the event have another type for a future antitype, when we celebrate the Lords wedding in heaven with Him....

1Co 5:7 ¶ Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven,

Paul is reminding them to keep the Passover correctly....early Christians celebrated this ordinance every time they met, as well an once a year annually....

If the Passover ended as you say why does Jesus make a future statement " until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."

This makes the meal He presented have ongoing significance....Passover points back to the Lamb slain for us, and forward to the Wedding feast....

What do you think of Jesus statement here ?

God bless brother


Rob,do you believe some big event will take place in a couple of days in Israel, something that will impact the entire nation?


Can you tell me why you are treating the three verses you quote as being three different events?

As far as I can see all three refer to the same occurrence.
