The lunar eclipses coming this year are unique for a number of technical and prophetic reasons. Beginning April 15th of this year with the first full lunar eclipse and ending in September of 2015 with the fourth eclipses, the moon will pass entirely into the shadow of the earth four times in a row without any intervening partial eclipses--an astronomical event known as a lunar tetrad.

During an eclipse earth's shadow acts more like prism. As light from the sun bends around the earth's periphery it casts an orange colored shadow closer in, then a red shadow in the middle distance zone, and further out the shadow is black (the absence of light). During all four of the coming eclipses, the moon is in a position on its elliptical orbit to pass through the dark red zone of the earth's shadow. A term, in the jargon of NASA and the astronomy community in general, not to mention Jewish Rabbis who calculate the dates on the Hebrew calendar revealed to Moses and recorded in the first five books of the Old Testament, known as Four Blood Moons.

The first blood moon of the coming lunar tetrad is April 15th which also happens to be the Jewish Passover, the first of three spring-time holy days which prefigure the gathering of Israel in the days Jesus Christ.

The second blood moon in the tetrad takes place on October 8th of this year, which is also the day of the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, the last of the three fall high holy days which prefigure the gathering of Israel in the last days.

The third eclipse occurs on April 4th, 2015, which also happens to be Passover.

The fourth eclipse occurs on September 28th, 2015, which is also the Feast of Tabernacles.

Between the first two blood moons this year, and the last two blood moons next year, a full solar eclipse of the sun takes place on March 20th.

According to Jewish teachings, a blood moon is a warning of war to Israel, while a solar eclipse is a warning of war to the entire world. It is also the time when God moves from His seat of mercy to his seat of judgement.
