BLOOD MOON TETRADS?
Or, Malaki 4:4-6?
We are seeing everyone talking about the “four blood moons."
It dawned on me they were neglecting to mention Malaki 4:4-6, the real preparation we should be focused on as watchmen.
Yahusha gave us forewarning of being led astray (off the path) by false teachers, and it's usually by misdirection and distractions. Now it's the Blood-Moonies trying to scare us.
The teachers imparting the "blood moon tetrads" as being highly significant claim they can't tell you when the next new moon will be, because they have to "sight" it - it cannot be predicted. What?
And yet, they know when the eclipses will occur, when the Earth passes between the sun and moon, causing the diffraction of the light passing through the Earth's atmosphere to make the moon appear reddish. This is caused by a spectral diffraction as the sun's light is bent by the atmosphere of our planet, but if the sun is darkened, this would not be able to occur as they expect. They are leaving part of the prophecy out, leading astray the unwary who do not study and test everything on their own. Notice the word "immediately" in the following text:
of those days the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give its
light and the stars shall fall from the heavens, and the powers of the
heavens shall be shaken."
In the prophecy, the sun will be darkened, and all of this occurs AFTER the "distress". Yahusha said nothing about advance notice, but He said “When you see these things”. The statement “when you see these” is clearly not a matter of predicting anything, it's actually happening as we're watching. We'll be seeing them happen.
What “things”? Surely, not blood moon tetrads, since He warned us we would first be deceived, then a great distress would occur, and “after the distress” the sun would be darkened, and the moon would not give its light.
The moon will not “turn to blood” twice, or three or four times; it will turn to blood only once Yual (Joel) 2:31, Acts 2:20, Rev 11:6). Oddly, the majority of Natsarim cannot even identify "when" the next moon will become new, yet they are falling all over themselves to teach and share the "blood moon tetrad" hoax, before a "blood moon" even appears.
We can sense we are being led astray, and Yahusha forewarned us.
"Immediately" is an overlooked word in the following verses:
"And immediately after the distress (tribulation, pressure) of those days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.
And then the sign of the Son of Adam shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Adam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem.
And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
And learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near.
So you also, when you see all these, know that He is near, at the doors.
Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away until all this takes place." Mt. 24:29-34
I suggest that we remember the Torah of Mosheh instead (Malaki 4:4-6), and let Yahusha see us obeying rather than running up and down telling people He's coming. We already know that; but we are to help them prepare. Our energies are best served explaining the Commandments, rather than explaining when the moon is going to change color.
Are they still scaring you with the four "blood moons?"
Focusing only on certain words of Yual/Joel 2 and Acts 2, Blood-Moonies miss the fact that the sun is darkened when the moon turns to blood (only once).
The prognosticators are describing "blood moons" (plural), and these occur during normal orbital circumstances when the moon is in the Earth's shadow.
