The Coming 4 Blood Moons:
Part 4 in a series (VIDEO)
Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013
Even casual readers of “A Crooked Path” ought to know this is a very pro-Israel pro-Jew place. I pray regularly for the safety of the Jews and Israel, and for the people of Israel from their leaders on down to every living Jew they humble themselves before Jehovah Elyon and turn back to God. And that Jews have the veil lifted from their eyes regarding the Messiah – the only Messiah – the only One who can save and give life – Jesus the Christ, Jesus the Lord, Jesus of Nazareth – God come to earth who lived and died and rose from the dead so all could partake of salvation and eternal life through belief, faith, and the working of their faith renewing their spirits and minds to serve the Lord and live to do His will.
I was visiting my ailing father today and during our times together we discuss the state of this world and its people. And refer always to Scripture. Today I was talking to him about the blood moons and the history behind them. How they are signs given to us. I spoke of how Gentiles need to stop acting as arrogant as they do and Gentile professed Christians ought to in truth be more Israelite – more Jewish in their minds.
In part 1 of this series there was an article regarding how we – Gentiles – and all the world except the Jews – follow the Roman calendar. Our months even named after Roman gods. And we should be following the Hebrew calendar instead. How we think we’re right and in truth we are in error. Just as instead of partaking of the numerous pagan rituals of Ishtar at the time of Christ’s death and resurrection we need to partake of Passover – as the Lord did. And have no part in pagan worship. What does this have to do with the blood moons?
Everything. Everything is connected. Inter-related. And all should see and know that by this time.
As Gentile professed Christians we also should be more well versed in history. Complete history. Not the abbreviated stuff. Not the skewed material. Learn the real important history as is being presented in numerous places. Beginning with the Older Testament and acquiring more knowledge from there. We also should be paying more attention to the heavens. The sun, the moon, and the stars. For God reveals much to His people if only they would look, see, and discern wisely.
Ministers, pastors, preachers, reverends – all should be relying upon the true complete Word of God and upon the Holy Spirit. And demonstrating their faith to their flocks rather than being the ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing they really are. With their idioms, axioms, jokes, Powerpoint, and well rehearsed routines to appease and entertain and MISLEAD. Vaudeville is not dead. It just moved to the pulpits of churches to entertain rather than tend to the flocks with the Word of truth, and to mortify sin and the philosophies and ways of this world.
The above ought to be teaching, reproving, instructing, admonishing, restoring in the complete Word of God and preach upon Revelation and prophecy and what really is and what is really coming. They ought to include history and the knowledge of what is taking place in the heavens in their care for their flocks rather than including numerous other beliefs mingling lies in with the truth and causing confusion and the great apostasy to occur.
We bring about the end of the world. We do. God, the true and wholly just and righteous Almighty God has no other choice but to send Jesus back to do battle with and judge the nations of the world.
As they all conspire and assemble in an attempt to annihilate Israel. Thinking it is Israel, it is the Jews – if only the world were clear of the Jews all would be well in the world.
Ignorant, arrogant, unrighteous, oh so lost Gentiles of this sinful world!
We all need to turn back to God. And if we believe we are we need to pursue the Lord even more than we have. It is time. Just as the unbeliever is instructed no one knows how many days they will be measured and how long this form of life they will have so they need to commit their lives unto the Lord and serve Him – we, too, do not know the measure of our days, or the days of this world, and we need to commit wholly with all our heart, and all our soul to love and pursue the Lord our God.
I do not know what is going to happen in this time period of the four blood moons and the Tetrad. It could be Iran, who in all likelihood at this time has nuclear weapons capability striking Israel and another major war in the Middle East breaking out. Or it could be Israel breaks ground upon building the Third Temple. Which has been in the works for a long time and has gained great momentum in Israel to be built.
No one really knows what is going to happen in these coming months and in the years 2014 and 2015. But we can be assured in knowing this from the proof of that which was once prophecy now being fact, and from history, and non-religious sources that SOMETHING major is going to occur with direct regard to Jews and Israel. Something world altering. Something to further fulfill the prophecy of the Holy Bible.
Now is not the time to become lax or to weaken by following false doctrine and false teachers. Now is the time to spend more time on our knees in fervent earnest prayer unto the Lord our God – and to LISTEN to what God tells us. Through His complete Word which tells us His will.
We need to set aside and cease and desist in proclaiming what we do is God’s will when in truth most of it is OUR will and we just attach God’s sacred name to it to justify our actions and desires. Now is not the time to waver of fall. Now is the time to fortify and gain strength – and that ONLY comes through the reading of God’s Word and fervent prayer. Having faith and trust in the Holy Spirit to guide us according to God’s Will (Word!) No other means! No other way!
And if it takes discovery and learning of the coming blood moons to have even one person see and feel the need to draw closer to God and distance themselves further from this world? And if in doing this helps even one person see how we need to become more of an Israelite than what we call or think of ourselves, and we need to love and respect Jews and Israel and to be aware of what is REALLY gong on in Israel and the Middle East – then all this is well worth the small effort.
I hope you are reading this series and it is helping in some way. There is a lot more yet to come…

The Four Blood Moons Prophecy
THE FEASTS OF THE LORD
Does History Provide Any Clues To How We Should Approach the Prophecy of the Four Blood Moons?

SIGNS OF THE BLOOD MOONS: THE FEASTS OF THE LORD
God’s eternal plan — from chaos to eternity — is incredibly revealed through the nature and timing of the Seven annual Feasts of the LORD. It was on Mount Sinai that God gave Moses the dates and observances of the seven feasts. When do they happen? God’s calendar is based on the phases of the moon. Each month in a lunar calendar begins with a new moon. Pesach falls on the first full moon of Spring. The first three feasts, Pesach, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits fall in March and April. The fourth one, Shavu’ot, marked the summer harvest and occurs in late May or early June. The last three feasts, Trumpets, Yom Kippur and Sukkot happen in September and October. Understanding the Feasts of the Lord is singularly one of the most critical components of bible prophecy.
INTRODUCTION TO THE FEASTS
In the last section we examined the incredible accuracy and reliability of prophecy. We also learned that God uses prophecy and pattern to help us understand his timetable for this earth and by doing so reveals His divine eternal nature of knowing the end from the beginning. Part of that divine calendar is a grouping of seven feasts that the Lord calls “my feasts” in Leviticus 23: “And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are my feasts.” God began His work in the nation of Israel about 3500 years ago. The exodus from Egypt took place in approximately 1500 B.C. Soon afterwards, at Mount Sinai, God, through his servant Moses, brought the nation of Israel the Law. It was at Mt. Sinai that Moses also instituted the Seven Feasts of Israel. Each one of these seven holy convocations were instituted by God and they were to be celebrated each year when those special holy days come around on the Hebrew calendar.
They served three primary purposes:
(1) To remember and celebrate what God has done (2) To draw one into a deeper understanding and relationship with Him in establishing and explaining certain truths (3) To serve as signposts in guiding God’s elect and covenant people to learn God’s plan for the ages.
These Seven Feasts of the Lord are much more than just religious ritual or religious tradition. They point to events of both past and future history. In fact, the Hebrew word for “feasts” (moadim) literally means “appointed times.” God has carefully planned and orchestrated the timing and sequence of each of these seven feasts to reveal to us a special story. The feasts correspond to the two agricultural seasons. In Israel there is a time of rain in the spring (former rain) and a time of rain in the fall (latter rain). This division relates to the two appearances that Messiah is to make on the earth: “…and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” (Hos. 6:3)
The first four of the seven feasts occur during the springtime (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks), and they all have already been fulfilled by Christ in the New Testament. What is amazing about their fulfillment is that they were fulfilled in the exact same order, to the exact same day, at the exact same time those feasts were celebrated by the nation of Israel. It should be noted that there is then an entire season that passes before the fall feasts begin. This long period represents the dispensation of grace that we now live in before the arrival of the fall feasts.
The final three feasts (Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occur during the fall, all within a short fifteen-day period. These fall feasts have not yet been fulfilled by Jesus. However, the “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13) for all believers in Jesus Christ is that they most assuredly will be fulfilled. As the four spring feasts were fulfilled literally and right on the actual feast day in connection with Christ’s first coming, these three fall feasts, will likewise be fulfilled literally in connection to the Lord’s second coming. Let’s take a closer look at each of the feasts to see the basis for this understanding
SPRING FEASTS – PROPHECY FULFILLED
The first “feast of the Lord” is Passover (Lev 23:5). It is the foundational feast that the other six feasts that follow build upon. Passover occurs in the spring on the fourteenth day of the Hebrew month of Nissan (March/April). While the Jewish people have celebrated Passover annually since the time of Moses, in reality, there was only one Passover. It occurred almost 3,500 years ago in Egypt. It was there, at that time, that a lamb was sacrificed and the blood was applied to each door post. This was done as an act of faith and obedience to God’s command so that the house would be “passed over” and the life of the firstborn would be saved. All subsequent Passovers have been memorials of that one and only first Passover. In precisely the same way, there was only one occasion when the Messiah’s flesh was pierced and His blood spilled on the cross of Calvary for the sin of the world. The Lord’s supper is an ongoing memorial of that momentous occasion. These feasts however are much more than memorials or representations. As we discovered in our last section they provide a pattern, a framework in which God has already revealed and will lead to a future and final fulfillment. As such they are fulfilled by Messiah in even the smallest detail.
One of the important aspects of Passover and the arrival of Messiah is the timing. Several times in scripture people sought to lay hands on Jesus which would have possibly led to his death. They were unable to do so because His “hour” had not yet come (John 7:30; 8:20). Then at the triumphal entry when Jesus enters Jerusalem (which we discovered was predicted to the day by the Prophet Daniel in our previous section) he declares, “The hour is come, that the Son of Man should be glorified… Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour;: but for this cause came I unto this hour”. (John 12: 23, 27) As that Passover Lamb, Jesus was officially presented to the nation on Palm Sunday, the tenth of Nisan as demanded in the Law (Exodus 10:3). He was then put up for examination for four days in accordance with the Law to show beyond a shadow of a doubt that He truly was the Lamb of God, without spot or blemish. When John saw Jesus approach him for baptism that he declared, “Behold the lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world”. (Matthew 22:46) This was the lamb that had been promised to Abraham. When Isaac asked his father Abraham where the sacrifice was, Abraham responded, “My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering”. (Genesis 22:8) As the fourteenth of Nisan approaches, Jesus prepares to be killed by the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel as required of the Lamb (Exodus 12:6).
“And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad”. John 11:49-54 As high priest Caiaphas officially chose the sacrifice which was required by the law. “Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people”. John 18:12-14
The language here of being bound and lead away is that of a lamb being led to a slaughter. Yet as that lamb (Jesus) is being led to the slaughter, He is silent just as predicted by Isaiah:
“He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth”. Isaiah 53:7
“And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But he held his peace, and answered nothing”. Mark 14:60, 61
This brings us to the crucifixion itself on the fourteenth of Nisan.
John in his gospel noted that Jesus died at the same time that the Passover lambs were being slaughtered in the Temple (John 19:14) and that like the Passover lambs, none of his bones were broken (the others being crucified had their leg bones broken by the Romans—John 19:32, 33, 36).
FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD
The Feast of Unleavened Bread (Matzot) begins the next day on Nisan 15, lasts for seven days, and is part of the Passover. (Lev. 23:6-8) It reminds us of the hurried exodus of the Israelites from the bondage of Egypt; when they did not have time to let their bread rise. Therefore, they ate unleavened bread on their journey into the desert to meet with God. In observing this feast all leaven is to be removed from the house, and only unleavened bread is to be eaten. The Hebrew word for leaven is “chametz“, which means, “decay, corruption, sour“. Leaven in the Bible is a symbol of sin. As leaven must be removed from the houses during this time, so must sin be removed from our lives. This points to the Messiah’s sinless life, making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus’ body was in the grave during the first days of this feast, like a kernel of wheat planted and waiting to burst forth as the bread of life.
The bread known as matzot has great symbolism; it is flat with lines and holes in it. It says in the scriptures that the Messiah was pierced, wounded and by His stripes we are healed. (Ps. 22:16, Is. 53:5, I Pet. 2:24) Jesus took this bread and said at the Passover meal, “This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19) Paul taught the spiritual message of Passover to the Corinthian church “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” (I Co. 5:7-8)
FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS
The Feast of Firstfruits came on the day following the Sabbath that came after Passover. The barley harvest, the first crop planted in the winter, is now, in the spring, beginning to ripen. The first sheaf (firsfruits) of the harvest is cut and presented to the Lord in ceremony and celebration. When God accepted the firstfuits, this was understood as a guarantee that the rest of the crop would be harvested. The Feast of Firstfruits was fulfilled by Jesus on that very day in His overcoming of death seen at His resurrection. In the scriptures there were also people who were raised from the Dead. In time, however, they died again. Jesus was the first to be resurrected from the grave, never to die again. He alone is the “firstfruits” and it is His resurrection that guarantees we too shall one day be raised from the dead for those who believe in Him:
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. (1 Corinthians 15:20-23)
FEAST OF WEEKS
This fourth feast is known as Shavuot (Hebrew) or “Weeks” It is called the Feast of Weeks because God specifically told the Israelites that they were to count seven weeks from Firstfruits and then on the “day after” this fourth feast was to be observed on the 50th day. On this day they were to bring two braided breads, baked with yeast, and were to be offered during this feast. They represent the Church, composed of Jews and gentiles united in the same body with Jesus as their savior.
For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross. Ephesians 2:14-16
Today the Church calls this Feast Pentecost, (a Greek word meaning fiftieth), where the Holy Spirit came upon the believers and gave birth to the church. Shavuot is one of the three pilgrimage festivals in which the Israelites were commanded to celebrate in Jerusalem. This is the reason that there was a multitude of people from every nation in Jerusalem at that particular time and were amazed when the followers of Jesus spoke in their own language (gift of tongues). This day was also when the Jews commemorated the day when the Lord gave the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. Notice that when Moses descended from Mount Sinai with the Tablets of the Testimony, “about three thousand men” died because of the people’s idolatry (Exodus 32: 28). In contrast, after Peter preached on the day of Pentecost, “about three thousand souls” converted to Christ! (Acts 2: 41) Notice again the amazing parallels and patterns that repeat on the same days.
Another important observation has to do with the book of Ruth, which is also read during this Feast. Shavuot is the time of the wheat harvest in the land of Israel. Ruth, a Gentile, returned with her Jewish mother in law, Naomi, to the land of Israel during the time of the beginning of the harvest. One of the commandments given regarding Shavuot was Leviticus 23:22, where it states that the corners of a field being harvested must be left for the poor and the stranger (Gentile). It was because of this Levitical law that Ruth, a Gentile, met and married Boaz, a Jew, bringing forth a son, who became the ancestor of our Messiah, Jesus. The first four Springtime Feasts are already accomplished in the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus. The three autumn feasts are still to come, in their prophetic accomplishment of Christ and of the Church. We are now in that time period between the Spring and Fall feasts.
FALL FEASTS – PROPHECY FUTURE
The redemptive work of Messiah’s first coming, which the four spring feasts depict, is history. Men can look back at these events, and they can be examined as historical facts. The three fall feasts have not yet been fulfilled. They predict, with absolute certainty, events that will yet unfold. As the four spring holidays were fulfilled literally and right on schedule in connections with messiah’s first coming, the three fall holidays will likewise be fulfilled literally and right on schedule in connection with His Second coming. The interval of time between the last of the spring feasts (Pentecost) and the first of the fall feasts (Trumpets) corresponds to this present age. In other words we are presently living between Israel’s fourth and fifth feast. The oupouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost commenced the Church Age; and Trumpets which will signal Messiah’s second coming will end the Church Age.
FEAST OF TRUMPETS
The fifth feast and first of the fall feasts is called the Feast of Trumpets or more popularly known as Rosh Hashanah. It literally means “head of the year” and is observed as the start of the civil year (in contrast to the religious year which starts just prior to Passover) on the Jewish calendar. This feast was to be held the first day of the month of Tishrei (September/October). The last month of the summer is the month of Elul. During this month, the shofar (ram’s horn) sounds once every day to prepare the people for the next three autumn feasts. Finally, on the first day of the month of Tishrei, which marks the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets, the shofar blasts 100 times, to assemble the faithful and call them to the Temple. Everyone must leave the work of the harvest and come to the feast.
Many believe that the parallel to this event is described in the NT here:
Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 1 Corinthians 15: 51-53
According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
This event is commonly called the Rapture. The word rapture comes from the Latin word “rapturo” which in turn was a translation of the Greek verb “caught up” found in 1 Thes 4:17.
There is agreement among Christians that Christ will return for his church as described in these verses but what is not quite so clear is the timing in relationship to Daniel’s 70 weeks that we looked at in section 1 of this report. Some Christians view the rapture event as happening before Daniel’s 70 weeks and are typically called pre-tribulational (before the Tribulation). Those who do not see a separate event of removing the church before this time are called post-tribulational (we are taken up at the end of Daniel’s 70 weeks).
Both have valid scriptural arguments and it is important for people to examine both perspectives.
One of the common arguments against suggesting the Rapture will be on a future Feast of trumpets is the word of Jesus in reference to His return: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only”. (Matthew 24:36)
One of the interesting things about the Feast of Trumpets is that it is based on the “new moon“, which is 29.5 days after the last one, meaning it might occur on the 29th or 30th day, nobody knows for sure. Some would argue that Jesus words “Of that day or hour no man knows” is actually an expression or idiom giving reference to this feast. Similar to someone in America saying, “I’m not telling you when I’m showing up, but: gobble, gobble, gobble!” (Inferring the feast of Thanksgiving). Many Christians try to use Jesus reference to dismiss knowing anything about issues related to prophecy. However it is just the opposite as not only are we told to watch, Jesus himself gives us numerous indications of the season in which He will return. The season of His return should not be a surprise to us if we are watching the signs of the times:
“But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.” Matthew 24:43
One interesting argument regarding the Feasts of Trumpets is that these Feasts were given to Israel, therefore it doesn’t have anything to do with the church. It is true that each Feast has a divine purpose in dealing with Israel – it’s scope however is also much larger. The Feast of Passover was given to Israel, but it depicts the Messiah’s death on Calvary for the sins of the world. Clearly, it’s provision goes beyond Israel. Likewise, the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) was given to Israel, but it depicts the birth of the Church through the New Covenant and descending of the Holy Spirit. Believing Jews and believing Gentiles become one in the Messiah.
YOM KIPPER – DAY OF ATONEMENT
Yom Kippur, (The Day of Atonement) has been the most holy day on the Jewish calendar since the days of Moses. This day focuses on atonement and forgiveness of sins. The word atonement means “to cover, to cancel”. Atonement is a Jewish concept, and is found throughout the Old Testament. Atonement means that even though we should have to suffer the consequences of our sins, instead God has provided a way in which something or someone else pays the price for our wrongdoing.
There is only one way that God provided atonement, which was through the shedding of blood. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. (Lev. 17:11) God gave us this method for the purpose of showing us the awfulness of sin. Before the Torah was given to Moses for the children of Israel, there were already animal sacrifices to God. In fact, the first sacrifice, the first shedding of blood was done by God Himself to atone for the sin of Adam and his wife (Gen. 3:21). God covered man with animal skins, and instituted the blood sacrifice Himself. It was on the day of Yom Kippur, only once a year, that the High Priest was allowed to enter into the Most Holy place, with the blood of lambs and goats, to make atonement offerings for himself and for the people. Many believe this prophetically points to the day of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return to earth after the battle of Armageddon. That will be the Day of Atonement for the Jewish remnant when they “look upon Him whom they have pierced,” repent of their sins, and receive Him as their Messiah.
SUKKOT (THE FEAST OF BOOTHS/TABERNACLES
This feast is a reminder of God’s miraculous provision for the Israelites, as they wandered for forty years in the desert and lived in “succot” (booths). Their clothes and shoes never wore out; God provided manna for food each day, water to drink and protection from their enemies. The most obvious symbol of Sukkot is the simple hut called the “sukkah” (booth or tabernacle). For seven days out of the year the Israelites are commanded to dwell in the sukkah as a reminder of their redemption out of the land of Egypt.
Jesus is our Sukkot, our Tabernacle, “The Word became flesh and lived among us” (John. 1:14). The word lived means “tabernacled”. When you receive Jesus in your heart, He comes to live inside of you, and you now become a tabernacle. What you do with this tabernacle affects your entire life and future. In the same way that the Passover inaugurated the springtime feasts, and was followed by the seven days of the feast of unleavened bread, the last of the feasts of the Lord included seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles, followed by an eighth distinct day, “the last big day of the feast.” This great final day marked the final consummation of the feast of the Lord and of the religious cycles. This feast will have its full prophetic accomplishment when the Lord comes with His Church to “tabernacle” or live in the middle of his people, after His return to the earth, to begin His one thousand-year reign. His great tabernacle will be situated in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles (Zech. 14: 16 -17).
The ancient Rabbis, who believed there were originally 70 Gentile nations, say this represents the future ingathering of the non-Jewish nations, who would one day become part of God’s Messianic Kingdom. “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Sukkot” (Zech. 14:16). Tabernacles can be seen as representative of the Kingdom of God coming to earth.
This Feast of Tabernacles, seven years after the beginning of the Tribulation, will mark the official inauguration of the Millennium. The “last great day of the feast” the eighth day, represents what will happen at the end of the Millennium, at the time of the last Judgement, the “Great White Throne” which will precede the new creation, the new heavens and the new earth on which the New Jerusalem will come down. Death will be no more. This earth’s history will end and eternity with the Lord will begin (Revelation 20-21) We can see that the cycle of the seven feasts of the Lord given to the Jewish people has a great prophetic significance for the Church of the Lord Jesus, and for the whole world.
In our next section we will see an amazing pattern between these Jewish Feasts and a rare celestial event known as the “Blood Moon Tetrad”.
