A lunar eclipse may be full or partial. When four full lunar eclipses occur in a row, with no partials in between, astronomers call it a TETRAD.
- Tetrads are very rare.
- They have only occurred three times in the past 500 years.
- Each time, the dates coincided with significant events in Judaeo-Christian history.
The next tetrad begins three months from now on April 15, 2014.
- ALL FOUR of them coincide with a major Jewish feastday.
Even more extraordinary, there will be a full solar eclipse in the middle on March 21, 2015, which will be Nisan 1, 5775.
- Nisan 1 is the first day of the Jewish ecclesiastical calendar and the day Jews celebrate God’s creation of the universe.
Two End of Time prophecies speak of the combination of solar and lunar eclipses:
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)
Jesus said, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light. … And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:29-30)
Note: Solar and lunar eclipses cannot happen on the same day. A solar eclipse happens when the Moon gets between the Earth and the Sun; a lunar eclipse happens when the Earth gets between the Moon and the Sun.
