Astonishing as it seems, four lunar eclipses will occur on God’s annual
Holy Days during Passover and Sukkot in the years 2014 and 2015, and
two solar eclipses on Nisan 1 and the Feast of Trumpets! These are
exceedingly rare occurrences, especially when they dovetail with God’s
Holy Days! What does it all mean? What is the prophetic significance? It’s
time to wake up and take heed of these ominous, fateful warnings from
heaven.

According to the Jewish calendar, the year 2008 is a Sabbatical year. A
new Sabbatical cycle will begin September 29, 2008. 2015 will also be a
Sabbatical year.

But most amazing of all, it has been discovered that in the years 2014 and
2015 there will be two solar eclipses and four lunar eclipses, all of them
occurring on Jewish Holy Days!

The Lunar eclipses break down as follows:

Passover                                April 15, 2014
Feast of Tabernacles              October 8, 2014
Passover                                April 4, 2015
Feast of Tabernacles              September 28, 2015

The two Solar eclipses connected with God’s Holy Days in 2014-2015
occur:

Adar 29/Nisan 1                    March 20, 2015
Feast of Trumpets                 September 13, 2015

It was on Nisan 1 that the Hebrew new year’s day occurred, according to
the Scriptures (Exo.12:1-2).  On the anniversary of this date, one year
later, Moses raised up the Tabernacle of God, inaugurated it, and the
glory of God descended from heaven  (Exodus 40:2, 17, 34).

The real shocker is that this phenomenon is extremely rare, for this
pattern of eclipses to fall on both Passover and Sukkot in two years in a
row, and for a solar eclipse to occur on important Holy Days in the same
year (2015).  

This intriguing, incredible discovery comes from Mark Biltz, pastor of El
Shaddai Ministries, in Bonner Lake, Washington. Biltz was intrigued with
the statement in the Scriptures that connect the second coming of the
Messiah with “
signs in the heavens,” particularly the signs that “the sun
will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood
” before the return
of Christ. He went on the Internet, to the U.S. Government NASA
website to see if there were any significant eclipses of the sun and moon
during the next few years. To his surprise, he discovered four lunar
eclipses in the Sabbatical year 2014/2015, and was intrigued by the fact
that they occurred on God’s annual Holy Days!

Writing about the amazing discovery in the May 2008 issue of Prophecy
in the News, J. R. Church declares, “
This is most unusual. It is a rare
occurrence for four lunar cycles on successive Passover and the Feast of
Tabernacles (Sukkot) observances. It will not happen again for hundreds
of years.


Says J. R.Church, in a letter accompanying the magazine issue, “Four
lunar eclipses occurring on the Feast of Tabernacles and Passover in two
successive years are phenomenal. But add to them two solar eclipses on
the two days that open the Jewish year – Adar 29/Nisan1, just two weeks
before Passover, and Tishri 1 (Rosh Hashannah) – is uncanny. On each
of these six Jewish Holy Days, the sun will be darkened and the moon will
not give her light. Will this happen again in the 21st century? No. Did it
happen in the 20th century? Yes, in 1949/1950, the year following Israel’s
statehood, and 1967/1968, the year Jerusalem was liberated in the Six-
Day War!  Before that, you have to go back to 1493 for four successive
lunar eclipses on Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles” (May 2008
letter).

Is God Almighty telling us something?  Skeptics and scoffers will
denounce the discovery as mere coincidence, but the prophet Daniel
informs us, “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined.  But the
wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but the
wise will understand” (Dan.12:10).

Peter warned, “
Scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to
their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming?  For
since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the
beginning of creation”
II Pet.3:3-4

Another shocking discovery is that coming up this summer there will be
three SOLAR eclipses in a row, in 2008, 2009, and 2010, all on the date
of the first of Av, the fifth Hebrew month of the year.  

Av 1                 August 1, 2008              partial solar eclipse
Av 1                 July 22, 2009                partial solar eclipse
Av 1                 July 11, 2010                partial solar eclipse

The first day of Av is in the middle of the time period when the Jewish
people mourn the destruction of the Temple of God. Historically Moses
descended from Mt. Sinai with the two tablets of the Ten
Commandments, and found the people engaged in gross idolatry at the
foot of the mountain. That was on Tammuz 17. Also, on Av 9, the
Hebrew spies returned from spying out the land of Canaan and brought an
evil report – and the people lost faith in God, and were condemned to
wander 40 years in the wilderness (Numbers 14:34). Av 9 also
commemorates the date of the destruction of the first Temple by
Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in 586 B.C., and the second Temple by the
Roman general Titus on the same date in 70 A.D.

These two dates are days of infamy in Israel.  The three week period
between Tammuz 17 and Av 9 are called “between the straits” and are
days of mourning, repentance, and lamentations. How interesting that a
solar eclipse will fall on the date of Av 1, in the middle of mourning and
lamentation, three years in a row!

Mark Biltz believes that these phenomenal solar eclipses on this date
signify that God could begin judging the Gentile nations this summer,
beginning Av 1.  Solar eclipses, he says, are designed for Gentile nations,
whereas lunar eclipses are designed for Israel.  These eclipses, too, then
could be a WARNING FROM GOD TO A WAYWARD WORLD!
