The third of the four prophetic blood moon tetrad the Christian community is talking about will be visible in the morning around 6:30 a.m. in the Mobile-FL Panhandle area. The lunar eclipse will only be visible as a partial, according to lunar websites. The first information published by Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries on this rare celestial event had Christian escatologists shocked. 

Looking up at the moon and stars can be a wondrous experience for some and for others it can be a tell-tale sign. Two local pastors in the area, Pastor Carl Gallups of Hickory Hammock Baptist Church, and Pastor Fred Rogers of Milton First Assembly of God have studied the events which consist of four lunar eclipses within a certain time frame, without a partial eclipse in between, causes the moon to look red, thus naming them blood moon tetrads.

A tetrad fell between 2014 and this year.  The significance of these lunar eclipses as both Gallups and Rogers agree, is the pattern coincided not only with Jewish Holy Feast days, which are even more of a rarity, but also in the past when specific, historic incidences occurred regarding Israel.   Gallups says in recent history two blood moon tetrads happened within the years of 1949 and 1950, when Israel took back their land and became a nation and also in 1967 and 1968 when Israel took back their City of Jerusalem. 

Rogers, who studied the phenomenon, says he believes something major may happen with Israel.  "I think we'll see something, perhaps a war.  They could get their temple back," he says.  "Scholars say something is going to happen.  I'm not sure how dogmatic we can be with this.  However, God told Daniel certain things will be hidden until the time of the end.  Maybe He is giving a warning of things going to happen."  Rogers says God is a God of order and pattern.  Because of that, he says, I know He speaks through order and the tetrads are a sign of order and pattern.

Gallups says the Holy Feasts days are significant to watch over the next year.  The first moon of the tetrad fell on April 15, 2014 at Passover.  The second was October 8, 2014 at the Feast of the Tabernacles.  Tomorrow, April 4 which is Passover and September 13, 2015 will be the Feast of Tabernacles.
