2014: Signs, Seasons and the Coming Tetrad - Lunar Eclipse

The next two years mark some very interesting signs in the heavens. In Genesis 1:14 God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” The word “seasons(Strong’s: 4150) properly translated means “appointed times.”

In addition to the heavenly lights providing earth with light they also provide man with signs. However, we would like to caution the reader not to make a religion out of any perceived sign in the heavens or assume the Tribulation is about to take place. Simply digest it and use your own spiritual discernment leaving God’s Word as the ultimate resource on our spiritual path.

With that in mind, this year the heavens will display the first two of four total lunar eclipses (blood moons) that will occur during 2014 and 2015 which are called a “tetrad,” meaning “group of four” (NASA tetrad). These total lunar eclipses happen to fall on religious holidays. In 2014 we have a total lunar eclipse (blood moon) on April 15th which is Jewish passover for those who claim to be of Judah. Then on October 8th we have the last total lunar eclipse of the year which is a day short of another Jewish holiday called Sukkot, (2014 Celestial Events).

While the heavens on March 20th of 2015 display a total solar eclipse to mark God’s New Year. Followed by the last two total lunar eclipses that occur on, April 4th which is Christian Passover in addition to Jewish passover. The last total lunar eclipse of this tetrad occurs on September 28th which is a day shy of the true birth date of Jesus Christ and the first day of Sukkot another Jewish holiday. There will not be another tetrad that falls on these dates for the foreseeable future, (2015 Celestial Events).

These are interesting signs in the heavens considering the scriptures of Joel 2:30-31, Matthew 24:29-30 and Acts 2:19-20. However, we should understand the scriptures at times have multiple meanings for a single verse. It is possible these scriptures are symbolic in nature. With that in mind we would again caution the reader not to make a religion out of these heavenly signs. This is simply an interesting sight in the heavens we will witness over the next two years. The Lord has asked us all to be watchman, “Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth,” (Isaiah 21:6) that is what we are doing.

In addition to these heavenly signs we have signs upon the earth as well.

We have calls for peace pouring in across the globe, imitating from places like Israel, Syria and Iran which are extremely significant signs to say the least. The United States is currently working with Israel and the Palestinians on a permanent peace treaty they hope to secure this year. If we open God’s Word to Ezekiel 13:16 God said, “To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD.

There will be no peace for Israel or the world until the True Lord Jesus Christ has returned. Yet, man will continue to try and make a way for their own salvation while at the same unknowingly fulfilling God’s Word.

In Syria we are hearing calls for peace after the three yearlong conflict waged by foreign backed rebels has taken its toll on the government. In addition, Syria was almost attacked by Western Governments until Syria turned over their chemical weapons inventory to the United Nations late last year in a last ditch peace effort that adverted war.

If we turn to Isaiah 17:1 we read, “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” The destruction of Damascus which has yet to occur is yet another marker for us to keep our eyes on. There is no peace for Syria.

In Iran we also have a push for peace. If we read the eighth chapter of Daniel we will discover there will be no peace for Persia which is Iran of today. Iran will ultimately be destroyed and when it is we will witness the appearance of the false messiah as the scriptures state. All these instances of peace will never materialize into any true peace agreement as the scriptures document.

These are extremely important signs and scriptures that we should all take the time to read in order to gain a better understanding of how the final events of this age unfold.

Please turn with us to,

1 Thessalonians 5:1-2
1 “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

This scripture does not stop here, pay close attention.

1 Thessalonians 5:3
3 “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.“

Right now we are hearing these calls for peace and safety, but as the scriptures state that will bring sudden destruction upon the world. Daniel 8 is a great example of how it will occur.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
4 “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”

What day? The Day of the Lord. It will not overtake you as a thief. Why?

1 Thessalonians 5:5
5 “Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.”

We are children of the light, we understand Satan will appear first claiming to be Jesus Christ. This is how the return of the Lord does not overtake us as a thief. Once Satan steps foot upon this earth in Jerusalem claiming to be Christ as 2 Thessalonians 2 states we will instantly recognize him for the liar he is. With that, we will know the return of the True Lord Jesus Christ will be extremely short. This is how the return of Christ does not overtake us as a thief.

1 Thessalonians 5:6
6 “Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”

We are to watch for the return of Christ. Understanding Satan will be cast from Heaven onto earth where he will claim to be Christ is ultimately our sign to let us know we have entered the Tribulation.

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” – Mark 13:37

  1. Signs follow, they do not precede.

    The revelation of Jesus Christ has nothing to do with a coming of the antichrist, or rebuilding a temple to further carry on the traditions of men, or even moon gazing to prophesy the future. “Awake thou that sleepest and Christ shall give thee light.”

    “It is finished” and we are to come out from among them. Sadly, most Christians are as foolish virgins, looking for signs.

    It is done – the finished mystery is here and now. Jesus Christ said as much two millenia ago. “Occupy while I am coming” and the results (manifestation) is in His hands.

    • Signs absolutely precede events. What kind of sign would it be if the event already happened? Have we forgotten one of the most referenced chapters in the entire Bible? Matthew 24. Let us read.

      Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

      Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

      Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

      Even the disciples asked for a sign and then Christ proceeded to explain to them what signs we would witness before His return. That is the entire point of Matthew 24.

  2. I appreciate the hard work you put into your articles, but I have a question about Satan’s role in earth’s history. According to the bible he is the power behind the world’s empires, so that basically means he’s been on earth since the garden of Eden, showed up to tempt Jesus and influences the world behind the scenes because the bibe tells us he Satan is the god of this world since he caused Adam and Eve to forfeit their rights. My question is how do UFO’s tie into this, with all the stupendous increase in technological advance who exactly is giving mankind this knowledge. Could you provide some further insight into this and how it might play into man being decieved in these last days?

    • Thank you for the comment. You are correct, Satan is the prince of this world and he will soon be crowned king. He was in the Garden, his role there was the serpent and we know he is the serpent from Rev 12:9. However, what did Christ say when he was tempted by Satan? Matthew 4:10 documents Christ told Satan to get lost essentially and Satan is in Heaven. Satan’s spirit is free to roam the earth, but his absolute form, his spiritual body is bound in Heaven until Michael casts him out of Heaven at the sixth trumpet (Rev 12:7-9). Do not forget Satan also has his children in this world doing his work as well. That is extremely important to understand.

      Concerning your question let us read,

      Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

      If you start at the top of the chapter you can further document this scripture is for us today. Knowledge has increased tremendously hasn’t it? Look back 200 years ago even 100 years ago and today is much different. Mankind really hasn’t made much technological advancement throughout man’s timeline. You will notice the internal combustion engine was invented ~100 years ago and we still use it today, yet every other technology has grown by leaps and bounds. Ask yourself why? Then look at the worlds structure which is built on oil.

      Now to UFOs. Are their aliens? Absolutely not, you asked about deception and that is a huge deception. Man is already deceived on so many levels. But does God’s Word say anything about flying craft? Turn with me,

      Eze 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

      Ezekiel is trying to describe something he saw. Read the whole chapter and try to draw out what he is describing. Make a mental note the only moving object Ezekiel ever saw was a wagon pulled by a horse or ox. Further this word “amber” is 2830 in the Strong’s Concordance meaning,

      H2830
      חשׁמל
      chashmal
      khash-mal’
      Of uncertain derivation; probably bronze or polished spectrum metal: – amber.

      We are not talking about a color, we are talking about metal. Ezekiel was staring at a craft comprised of metal and it was no horse drawn wagon. The throne of God was aboard this craft.

  3. There was an appointed time for the destroyer(devil) to come in the first passover.
    I think there is a strong possibility his appointed time has not changed.

  4. it says right in the article Russia: Town Hit By Meteorite Injuring 1200 , caught on film that the mobile network was destroyed and buildings devastated. Thats prolly what PM was talking about.

  5. town hit by meteorite did more damage than break some windows. People were hurt, You know Russia and How those communist dont print everything in the papers. News papers are Kenite business remember? They Lie and cheat and God knows what else. Hide facts etc… if people were bloodied it must have destroyed something.

  6. Has anyone else watch the lecture on SC on the date of Jan 21st 2014? he talks about there being 4 comets which is extremely rare, and i think he talks about an asteroid that destroyed something could not understand what he said. Eventually he went to the Scriptures Ezekiel 38 and in that book verse 5 mentions Persia (iran) , Ethiopia( africa) and Libya(Islamic Brotherhood)There was Pastor Murray with a very interesting “current events” lecture . I think it will be interesting to you. I watched it already and I have it downloaded. You all should go right to the SC videos and watch it, before it goes off the video, but there is the audio too, if the video is gone. Its just that I cant do the audio, need to watch Pastor Murray speak/watching mouth movements.

  7. Good info. Damascus and Iran are very interesting geographical points to keep an eye on for sure. For peace in Jerusalem I could see a temporary peace deal struck but it wont last. No real lasting peace until the true Christ returns

  8. NASA named it tetrad….is there a Bible definition for the word tetrad?

    • The definition of “tetrad” is simply “a group of four”. So in this case we are talking about total lunar eclipses. So a group of four total lunar eclipses. This is a rare event and considering the dates involved its only happened a handful of times during important times in history. We will leave that research up to the reader.

  9. Thumbs up Brandon,great job.
