Supermoon completes tetrad

This year the night of September 27-28, which heralds the start of the biblical celebration of Sukkot (the “Feast of Tabernacles“), will bring another “blood moon.” To skywatchers, the dramatic term refers to the copper color the moon takes on during an eclipse, but to some observers, this event – the fourth and final eclipse in an unusual tetrad of four consecutive total lunar eclipses coinciding with major biblical holidays, each separated by six lunar months – will fill a biblical prophecy of the apocalypse. The first three in the series took place on Passover April 15, 2014; Sukkot October 8, 2014; and Passover April 4, 2015.

A Rare Supermoon

This Sunday will present the rarest Supermoon – the first time in more than 30 years we will have a Supermoon and lunar eclipse at the same time. Earth’s shadow will begin to dim the “supermoon” slightly, beginning at 8.11 p.m. EDT. In the U.S. and much of the world, a total lunar eclipse will mask the moon’s larger-than-life face for more than an hour. The result will be an unusual “blood moon” that some in religious circles are suggesting will signal an end of the world type of event – a doomsday. So, while many astrological watchers are looking forward to the unique event, others like pastor John Hagee, a minister from Texas, suggest that this Supermoon may point to a significant world event like an apocalypse or Armageddon.

Hagee cites a Bible passage from Joel 2:31 (“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes”) that he claims predicts the end of days with the arrival of a blood moon.

Blood Moon History

“Over the last 500 years, blood-red moons have fallen on the first day of Passover three separate times. These occurrences were connected to some of the most significant days in Jewish history: 1492 (the final year of the Spanish Inquisition when Jews were expelled from Spain), 1948 (statehood for Israel and the War of Independence) and 1967 (the Six-Day War). Every heavenly body is controlled by the unseen hand of God, which signals coming events to humanity. There are no solar or lunar accidents. The next series of four blood moons occurs at Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015,” Hagee wrote in material promoting his book Four Blood Moons.

Hagee suggests that there are “direct connections between four upcoming blood-moon eclipses and what they portend for Israel and all of humankind… The coming four blood moons points to a world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015,” he said.
