I watched the Passover 4/4/2015 Blood Moon here in New Zealand. The sky was mostly clear and view unobstructed.
No that is not my photo above, but I have learned why the moon goes red. Apparently every sunrise and every sunset in the world during the Blood Moon is cast onto the moon and transforms it into a great red orb.
During this sign and the complete Tetrad we continue to see the the Middle East transform. We now see what looks like a Shia Sunni war beginning to emerge. We live in interesting times and God gives us signs using the sun, moon, and stars. But most people ignore these signs and think they are insignificant. Using the Gregorian Calendar only exacerbates the situation.
As Christians, we should not put our faith in astrology, but God absolutely does use the heavens for signs to mankind. In Genesis 1:14 we read:
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:”
It is also interesting to note that the word ‘seasons’ here is the same word ‘feasts‘. The Hebrew word for both is the single word ‘mo’edim’.
We also read in Matthew 2:1-2, that wise men were led to Jesus by a star.
“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”
Matthew 2:9-10 says,
“When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”
God speaks to mankind in many ways. Through scripture, the prophets, apostles, and his own son. God also speaks to us using his own creation. We read that “the Heavens declare the glory of God” and we know that God specifically uses the sun, moon, and stars as signs and feasts.
Sometimes we only need to look up to see God speaking to us.
When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
It is time to look up if you love God. Your redemption draws nearer by the day and we are living in significant times.
Make sure you are ready if he were to return today.
