Blood Moons’ connection to the Bible  (Approximate ‘middle’ of Daniel’s 70th Week)      To make a long story short, I didn’t pay any attention to the blood moons because I don’t rely on ‘astronomy’ for Bible predictions.  Nevertheless, I heard about them through people who would e-mail me.      After the blood moons received national media attention, in April 2014, someone e-mailed me these first two articles, which helped me understand what they were and why they’re potentially important.   “Video” - explaining the ‘physics’ of lunar eclipses  USA Today - April 3, 2014 (time=2:16)   (Sorry, embedding wasn’t an option)
    What surprised me was how evenly spaced the four eclipses were, during the Spring-Fall-2014 and Spring-Fall-2015.  Chart below APOCALYPSE NOW: Why a rare astrological event LAST NIGHT could herald the 'End of Days' Express [UK] – April 9, 2014 Quotes:  The incredible alignment has only happened a  handful of times in the last two thousand years but, remarkably, on each of the last three occasions it has coincided with a globally significant religious event. The first Tetrad since the Middle Ages, in 1493, saw the expulsion of Jews by the Catholic Spanish Inquisition, which rocked western Europe. The second coincided with the establishment of the State of Israel - after thousands of years of struggle - in 1949.  [referring to tetrad] Strangely, the last one occurred in 1967 - far earlier than expected - precisely at the time of the Six-Day Arab–Israeli War.    Of course, any ‘tetrad’ covers ‘two-years’ but significant events are not always exact.  For example, this article notes 1949 for the blood moons but everyone knows that Israel became a nation in 1948.    Therefore, it’s not unusual that the tetrad has passed but more specific events from Daniel continue to unfold in the Middle East.  When the events get to the ‘abomination that causes desolation’, from Daniel 11:31, the rapture will occur, from Matt. 24:29-31.  That will be significant for both Christians and Jews because they are both mentioned in Matthew 24:15-31 and Revelation 7.  Significant Biblical events happen ‘around’ Blood Moon tetrads. Quick summary    In both cases, the 144,000 Jews are mentioned first but they stay on earth to endure the ‘trumpet plagues’ from Revelation 8, and other events until Revelation 14 & 15, when they are martyred and their souls are accepted into heaven (before the ‘bowl plagues’).  After the last bowl plague, which is Armageddon, those same 144,000 Jews will become priests, in Jesus’ new kingdom on earth, for 1000 years.  All that starts at the ‘abomination’.    At the same time, the ‘abomination’ will be significant to Christians because the ‘rapture’ will happen, from Matthew 24:29-31, which determines where a person resides forever.  (It doesn’t get any more significant than that.)  Christians who are taken in the rapture are treated to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, for 2300 days, while tribulation happens on earth.  Then, they will follow Jesus back to earth, for Armageddon, and the start of a 1000-year reign.   Unfortunately, gentiles who miss the rapture will not have a second chance like the 144,000 Jews.  I’m just explaining what I see in Revelation, honestly.  That’s why it’s important for people to have a sincere relationship with Jesus, before the abomination in Daniel 11:31.

Were the Blood Moons in the ‘middle’ of the 70th Seven?  not quite.    I admit that I thought the blood moons were a confirmation for the ‘middle’ of the 70th Seven, because they were the right distance (3.5 years) from the Arab Spring (in general).    However, when I examined the actual dates, I discovered that the blood moons were well before the ‘middle’, as depicted in the graph below. (The 70th Seven is explained some below Daniel 11:31)    Historically speaking, ‘tetrads’ of blood moons happen ‘around’ important Biblical events, not directly on them.  Come to find out, God’s timeline of 37’s (described below chart) is much more precise on the actual years, which includes the year 2016.  Therefore, if the rapture happens in 2016, then the blood moons of 2014-2015 will be in the right ballpark.  2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018      4      7     10      4      7     10      4      7     10      4      7     10      4      7     10      4      7     10 “The 70th Seven” (Daniel’s final week) Tetrad of Blood Moons Illustration of Daniel’s 70th Week, including the blood moons                                                             and anniversaries      4      7     10 2019 Illustration of the 70th Seven with the blood moons and anniversaries 2020 God’s timeline of 37’s    Come to find out, God has been using His own “Timeline of 37’s” (with ‘37-years’ as a ‘unit of time’) since the beginning of Islam, not exclusively, but enough to be sure that “37” is the real solution to God’s riddle in Revelation 13.  Plus, 2016 is on that Timeline of 37’s! Muhammad’s vision in 610 and the ‘Final Empire’ connection    It just so happens that Muhammad received his vision, which started Islam, in 610 AD    The Islamic Revolution in Iran, which started the ‘Final Empire’, occurred in 1979    Well, the time between those happens to be: 610 AD + “37 x 37” years = 1979, or 610 AD + 1369 years = 1979, which is perfection for God’s timeline of 37’s.     Seriously, this fact literally connects ‘Muhammad’s vision’ in 610 AD to the ‘final empire’ in Daniel 11:21, which started in 1979, and also to the ‘riddle of 666’, in Revelation 13. Now, Iran is in their 37th anniversary, which started February 11, 2016 The birth of the 12th and final Imam – 869 AD    Another point on God’s timeline of 37’s is the birth of the 12th and final Imam, who is a vital person in Twelver beliefs because they think he will return, along with Jesus, to bring peace to the world.  When the rapture happens (Jesus’ return in the sky) and the Mahdi hasn’t appeared, it will be the spark needed to inspire the antichrist to slander God, as noted in Daniel 11:36.  It’s almost poetic that his birth was exactly “7 units of 37 years” after Muhammad’s vision, which started the timeline.  610 AD + 7 x 37 years = 869 AD  Osman’s vision in 1276 AD (connected by 666 years)    Another famous vision occurred in 1276 AD (my original book had 1277 because I had to subtract two references to get the year so an error of one year can happen that way).  Anyway, the dream or vision was important because it was mentioned in Daniel 11:14, which is of course God’s ‘Book of Truth’, and led to a vast empire that stretched to three continents, as interpreted for Osman at the time.  It’s especially interesting that Osman’s vision occurred “18 units of 37” from Muhammad’s original vision (666 years from 610 AD).     Mathematically speaking, 610 AD + 666 years = 1276 AD, connecting both Islamic visions to God’s timeline of 37’s The ‘Church’s’ connection to the ‘Number of the Beast’ and ‘37’    The original event that caused me to discover God’s timeline of 37’s was when Pope Francis  planned a meeting with the Patriarch of the Russian Church, in Cuba, on February 12, 2016, one day after the 37th anniversary of Iran begins, on February 11, 2016.  Plus, Rouhani visited the pope on January 26, 2016, which probably set up this meeting between churches.     This is an important event because it’s the first meeting since the “great schism” of 1054, which effectively separated Church 3 from Church 4, in the “Seven Churches” (Rev. 2-3).   Mathematically speaking,  610 AD + “12 x 37” years = 1054 AD  or  610 + 444 = 1054    Later, I found a connection with the Russian Church because a major event happened in January 1721, when Peter-the-Great eliminated the Patriarch of Russia and replaced him with a secular assembly, called the Holy Synod.  It seems that Peter-the-Great wasn’t very religious but it’s interesting because it happened very close to 1720 AD, which is 666 years  from 1054 AD.  (That’s eerily similar to the two visions, in Islam, being 666 years apart.             Side Note:   I never would have discovered God’s “Timeline of 37’s” if I hadn’t already discovered the real meaning of Daniel 11, which highlights the Shiites as the “final empire”, starting in verse 21, and leading to the ‘abomination’, in verse 31.      Yes, it’s true because those verses are happening, right now, in the Middle East.  Plus, the events are being tracked, for free, in current events.  (verses 24-26)  Updated below The rise and acceptance of “inter-faith” services   I’ll just tell you ahead of time that the ‘abomination’ has a lot to do with so-called ‘inter-faith’ services because they are done in the name of ‘peace and harmony’ but it’s still not right.  The concept may sound good, on paper, but combining a false religion, such as Islam, with Christianity is a slap in the face of Jesus.  God is not in the habit of compromising with false prophets and giving them equal billing with His Son, Jesus.  It’s literally an abomination to God.  Chrislam   I became aware of the mixing of Islam and Christianity, into something called Chrislam, about the time that Muhammad Ali died but it’s been around for decades.  Historically speaking, Chrislam started in Nigeria, in the 1970’s, by a person named Tela Tella, who allegedly receives divine revelations, which he says ‘correct’ the Bible.  That’s eerily similar to what Muhammad said in the 7th century.  Tela Tella is even working on his own final book, such as Muhammad did.  They are both false prophets because no one is supposed to add or subtract from Revelation. (Rev. 22:18)  Another person named Dr. Saka created a separate sect of Chrislam, with fewer rules than the first, but he justified the mixing of religions with a dream he had while resting near the Kaaba, during his 2nd hajj, in 1990.  That’s also eerily similar to Muhammad because he supposedly had his infamous dream while sleeping in the Kaaba.  Chrislam is not extremely widespread in Nigeria because most Christians and Muslims, there, see them as heretics or cults.   Nevertheless, the concept spread to America when Rick Warren addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in 2009.  Since then, many churches have adopted so-called ‘inter-faith’ services but Christianity shouldn’t be compromised by adding elements from Islam or anything else that contradicts God’s Word.  Jesus is the only way to the Father, period. (John 14:6)  After all, watering down the Bible doesn’t do anyone a favor because false prophets will be exposed for what they are.  Jesus said, “Leave them; they are blind guides.  If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14) Messianic Judaism    Don’t be fooled into mixing Christianity with Judaism, either, as the Messianic Jews do, because Paul was adamantly against it and considered that following the Jewish laws was a step backwards from the spiritual freedom that Jesus provided. (Galatians 5: 1-10)     In general, spiritual freedom does not imply the freedom to sin but the freedom to approach God without all the customs and regulations that religions place on a person.     In general, spiritual freedom means that we are saved by faith in Jesus, which is internal, not by outward deeds, but that doesn’t mean that a Christian shouldn’t perform good deeds.  It means that a Christian should do good deeds because they want to, not because they have to.    The desire to do good deeds comes naturally from a Christian’s love for God because Jesus said, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matt. 25:40)     However, following the Jewish customs of what to eat and drink on a certain day, as the Messianic Jews perform, is not the good deeds that Jesus is talking about. We are all part of the body of Christ and must do our part (1 Cor. 12:14-31) but that has nothing to do with eating and drinking. (Mark 7:14-23)   In fact, Paul was very much against the Jews who tried to make Christians follow the Jewish customs.

Illustration of the 70th Seven with the blood moons and anniversaries Illustration of the 70th Seven with the blood moons and anniversaries Possible ‘start and middle’ to Daniel’s 70th Seven   Both Daniel 11:31 and Daniel 9:27 contain the abomination that causes desolation so they must correspond to each other.  Daniel 11 is the most detailed list of events leading to the abomination but there’s no time-frame.  Daniel 8:13 and 12:11 also contain the abomination but they only give time-frames that are after the abomination (post-rapture).  Daniel 9:27 is the only verse in the Bible that gives a time-period before abomination but it’s difficult to figure out when it starts because it depends on the ‘confirmation of a covenant’.  A covenant is just an agreement or promise, which is vague, so it’s difficult to determine which agreement it’s referring to.  Nevertheless, as Daniel 11:31 becomes more clear, as to who sets up the abomination and why, I think it also becomes clearer as to what agreement is confirmed.    The only way to know for sure is to wait and see, but I think the mixing of men and women, particularly at the Western Wall (temple fortress), has a lot to do with it, due to Zechariah 12.  Coincidently, that happens to be what the debate is all about concerning egalitarian prayer at Robinson’s Arch, and the dates match the current time, as shown below.    In early 2013, Netanyahu assigned Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency, a quasi-branch of government that handles immigration and relations with Jewish communities abroad (diaspora), to find ways of making the Western Wall more accommodating to different branches of Judaism.    April 9, 2013 - Sharansky proposed a plan to expand and improve the Robinson’s Arch area to make it more accessible to non-orthodox Jews for egalitarian prayer.  The final plan was supposed to accommodate 1200 people and have a shared entrance with the Kotel so worshipers could easily choose which direction to go.  It was supposed to be state-staffed, with amenities such as Torah scrolls and other ritual objects, as found in the men’s section.    August 27, 2013 -  Naftali Bennett, Israel’s religious services minister, unveiled a 4,800 sq ft ‘temporary’ platform for egalitarian prayer at Robinson’s Arch.  The gesture was received as a small step forward but most said it was inadequate for the long term.  Nevertheless, the platform represented a ‘confirmation’ of the original promise from Sharansky to make an egalitarian prayer space, for non-orthodox groups, at Robinson’s Arch.    According to Daniel 9:27, the ‘confirmation of a covenant’ will start a ‘70th seven’ and the abomination will be set up in the middle, which would imply a 3.5 year difference. (chart left)   August 27, 2013 + 3.5 years = February 27, 2017, which happens to be the start of a lunar month, which is a ‘new’ moon, not full.  However, it’s ironic that there’s a solar eclipse on the day before, 2-26-2017 (but only in the southern hemisphere). Note: I’m not trying to pick a date for the rapture because I’ve always said that the middle of a seven-year period cannot be restricted to just one-day.  Jesus could come at any time.  Yet, it’s interesting that the Israeli Supreme Court is due to rule on the implementation of the expanded egalitarian prayer space, approx. 3.5 years after the temporary platform (confirmation) was unveiled.   Note: More years have been added to the timeline, plus a chart, which can be found on the 666 page.      4      7     10 Illustration of the 70th Seven with the blood moons and anniversaries End Times Timeline from Daniel and Revelation (based on Abomination) click to enlarge 3.5 year difference
