Blood Moons

During a total Lunar Eclipse, the Moon may appear blood red.  This is due to the ring of fire (or light) around the Earth as it blocks the light of the Sun.  This red light around the Earth makes the Moon appear blood red or copper colored.  The Moon that is blood red is eerie and is considered a bad omen.

Periodically, there are a sequence of four Blood Moons at six month intervals.  Each of the four Blood Moons is due to a total Lunar Eclipse.  The sequence of four Blood Moons is called a tetrad.1, 3   There are eight such tetrads in the current millennium.  The first one occurred in 2003 2004.  The second one is in 2014 2015.

The Blood Moon is a symbol of the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Sun will be darkened and the Moon will be blood red during the Tribulation before the Lord returns.  The Moon itself symbolizes the congregation of Israel or the Church.  Today, it symbolizes the Church.  In the Tribulation, which is in the Dispensation of Israel, it symbolizes Israel i. e. the congregation of believers in Israel.  A Jew is not a Jew unless he believes in Jesus Christ.

The Moon also symbolizes the Right Woman, and the Sun symbolizes the Right Man.  Just as the Church reflects the Light of Christ, the Moon has no light of its own but reflects the light of the Sun.  Similarly, the Right Woman reflects the Light of her Right Man (1 Cor 11:7).  Right Man and Right Woman have a common Stage of Life and Spiritual advance.  If the man walks in darkness, the woman is also darkened.

Since the Moon symbolizes the Church, a Lunar Eclipse is Divine punishment or testing associated with the Church.  The blood red color of a total eclipse is a further symbol of suffering.  However, since the Moon can also symbolize Right Woman, a Lunar Eclipse can also symbolize Divine punishment or testing of the Right Woman.  Further, since men are in the Church along with women, a Lunar Eclipse may symbolize suffering of the man as well as the woman.

Meaning of the Tetrad

The mystery of tetrad eclipses can be understood by grouping the four eclipses in two groups of two.  The first two symbolize the First Advent of Jesus Christ, and the second two symbolize the Second Advent.  The six month interval of the first two corresponds to the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus six months apart.

The six month interval of the second group of two corresponds to the time between the middle of the Tribulation and the Second Advent.  Just as John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus Christ, Moses and Elijah will appear in the middle of the Tribulation as heralds of the Second Advent of Jesus Christ.

Birth of John the Baptist

The birth of John the Baptist was a significant historical event that was prophesied by Isaiah and Malachi (Isa 40:3-5; Mal 3:1; Matt 3:3; 11:10; Mk 1:2-3; Lk 7:27; Jn 1:6-7, 15, 19-34).  The angel Gabriel was sent to Zacharias to inform him that his wife Elizabeth would be the mother of John the Baptist (Lk 1:13-17).  Gabriel then told Zacharias about the purpose of John's life.
Luke 1:17
"It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him (Christ) in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of fathers back to children (humility), and the disobedient to the Divine viewpoint of the Righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
John the Baptist would be a forerunner of Christ to teach people doctrine and prepare their hearts and minds for the Lord.  He would operate in the spirit and power of Elijah.  Elijah was the great Spiritual leader of Israel who stood up to Ahab and Jezebel.  Elijah would also be a herald of the Second Advent.

Six months later Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary and told her that she would have a son, who would be the Christ.  Gabriel also told Mary that Elizabeth was in her sixth month of pregnancy (Luk 1:26, 36).  After John was born, his father Zacharias prophesied about him (Luk 1:76-77).

Matthew 3:1-2 John the Baptist
1  Now, in those days John the Baptist came out publicly proclaiming as a herald in the wilderness of Judea, saying,
2  "Change your mind!  For you see, the Kingdom of Heaven has come near!"
John the Baptist broke away from the legalists and apostates of Judaism.  He left the synagogues and went out into the wilderness (desert country) to publicly proclaim as a herald the coming of Messiah.  The Greek khruvssw (kerusso) means to proclaim by a herald.  This is the Greek translation of the Aramaic  zr^k+ (keraz), meaning to proclaim as a herald, to cry out.  Matthew was very likely written in Aramaic.  John's ministry began in the desert and so did the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt 4:1-11).  This is significant because a desert symbolizes death and desolation.  Sin produces death, and Jesus Christ was coming to pay for sins and give Life.

Masses flocked from the cities and were evangelized by John.  He proclaimed, "Change your mind," which is the Greek metanoevw (metanoeo), from (metav, change) + (noevw, think) = change one's mind.  The actual Aramaic that was likely used is bWv (shub), meaning to turn back (in the mind).  These words mean to change the mind about the Lord Jesus Christ for Salvation.  It does not mean repent, which involves penance.  Salvation is by Grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.

The "Kingdom of Heaven" refers to God's Kingdom on Earth, i. e. the Millennium.  This is the future kingdom of Israel predicted by the prophets.

Matthew 3:3 Preparing Israel for the Lord's Coming
For this is the one referred to by Isaiah, the prophet, saying, "Hark, a crier!  In the wilderness, prepare a roadway for the Lord.  Pave the way for Him."
"Hark, a crier!" is  more in keeping with the original Hebrew of Isaiah 40:3, which does not say, "A voice crying."  John was crying out as a herald.  He was like a trailblazer who cut a trail and made a roadway for the Lord Jesus Christ to follow.  He was a forerunner of the Lord Jesus Christ in Hypostatic Union.  He went before the Lord to prepare people to meet Him.  He was a herald who gathered people together to listen to the Lord's Word.  John was to prepare Israel for the coming Messiah and His sacrifice for sins (Matt 3:1-2; Luk 3:4, Jn 1:31; Acts 13:24).
Matthew 3:4
Now John himself wore a garment of camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey.
John did not wear the suits of the Pharisees but the clothing of an outdoorsman.  He wore an outer garment of camel's hair with a leather belt.  And he ate locusts and wild honey.  John's clothing and diet reflected the undeveloped frontier.  Something new was about to begin.  The clothing of the Pharisees reflected the hypocrisy of a degenerate society (Matt 11:8).
Matthew 3:5
Then there proceeded out to him, Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region around the Jordan;
People flocked out of he cities to go out into the desert to hear John's prophecy.  John the Baptist was sent to bear witness of Jesus Christ, the Light of the world (Jn 1:6-8, 15).  When John attracted large crowds, the Pharisees sent messengers to him to find out who he was (Jn 1:19).  He told them he was not the Christ (the Messiah), nor Elijah, nor the Prophet who would come (Deut 18:15; Jn 1:20-21).  He told them that he was the voice crying in the wilderness who was prophesied by Isaiah (Jn 1:23).

The next day Jesus came to John to be baptized.  When John saw Him coming, he said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (Jn 1:29).  He recognized Jesus Christ as the redemption solution for the sins of all mankind.

John 1:32 Holy Spirit Anointing Christ
And John testified, saying, "I myself have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out from Heaven, and He (Holy Spirit) remained upon Him (Christ)."
This was John's testimony as the herald of the King (Jesus Christ).  He saw the Holy Spirit descend from Heaven upon the Lord Jesus Christ.  This was the anointing of the Holy Spirit for Christ's earthly ministry (Act 10:38).  It was a Spiritual gift (Matt 12:18; Luk 4:18; Jn 3:34).
John 1:34
"I myself (John) have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God."
As the herald of the King, John the Baptist bore witness that Jesus was the Son of God.

Birth of Jesus

Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, as related in the Christmas Story (Matt 1:23-25; Lk 2:4-20).  According to the signs of His birth, Jesus was born under the sign of Virgo (Rev 12:1-2).2  Backtracking six months would put the birth of John the Baptist in the sign of Pisces.

Heralds of the Second Advent

The Second Advent of Jesus Christ will occur at the end of the Tribulation.  The Tribulation is the last seven years of the Age of Israel.  It will commence following the Rapture of the Church.  The Tribulation will be divided into two halves.  The first half of the Tribulation will be a time of world-wide evangelism in preparation for the Second Advent.  The Jews will realize the error of their ways and believe in Jesus Christ.

The second half of the Tribulation is called the Great Tribulation because it will be a time of the worst suffering in the history of the world.  Satan will be thrown out of Heaven permanently in the middle of the Tribulation.  Knowing that his time is short, he will pull out all the stops to defeat Israel and vindicate himself.  It will be a time of the devil's desperation.

The heralds of the Second Advent, Moses and Elijah, will arrive in the  middle of Tribulation (Mal 4:5-6; Rev 11:3-12).  They previously met Jesus on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matt 17:3; Mk 9:4; Lk 9:30). They will appear in human bodies on Earth, since they will not receive their resurrection bodies until the Second Advent.  Jerusalem will be under Gentile rule for the 3 years (42 months) of the Great Tribulation (Rev 11:2).  Moses and Elijah will testify as witnesses for Christ for 1260 days, which is 3 years using the Jewish Lunar Calendar of 360 days per year (Rev 11:3).

Moses and Elijah will be hated by Satan and the world rulers under his power.  They will have great powers to defend themselves, however.  They will be able to throw flames from their mouths to kill their enemies (Rev 11:5).  They will have the power to stop rain from falling, to turn water into blood, and to cause plagues (Rev 11:6).

When Moses and Elijah finish their work after 3 years, they will be killed by a demon from Tartarus, the dungeon of Hell (Rev 11:7).  This is probably Abaddon (Rev 9:11).  Their bodies will lie in the street for 3 days, and the evil people will rejoice because they are dead (Rev 11:8-10).  This will likely be reported worldwide on the news.  However, after 3 days, the spirit of human life will return to them from God, and they will be resuscitated (Rev 11:11).  Then God will call them home, and they will ascend to Heaven (Rev 11:12).

Israel in the Great Tribulation

The Great Tribulation is personified as a woman in labor.  The woman symbolizes Israel.
Revelation 12:1-2
1  And a great sign was seen in Heaven: a woman clothed with the Sun, and the Moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
2  furthermore, she was pregnant; and she screamed, suffering from labor pains, and she was tortured to give birth.
The "great sign" has several meanings.  First, the Sun can symbolize Jacob (Israel), the Moon his wives, and the 12 stars the tribes of Israel.  Secondly, the Moon can symbolize the congregation of Israel in the Tribulation.  And thirdly, the woman can be the sign of Virgo at the Birth of Christ.2

Satan will torture the woman, who symbolizes Israel in the Tribulation.  Israel will be opposed by the Dictator of the Revived Roman Empire (Rev 12:3).  He is empowered by Satan, who rules a third of the angels of Heaven (Rev 12:4).  Satan is waiting to torture the woman's child when she gives birth.  He is waiting to destroy the Lord Jesus Christ when He returns at the Second Advent.

The woman (Virgin Mary) gave birth to a Son (Jesus Christ), who later ascended to Heaven (Rev 12:5).  Later, during the Tribulation, the woman (Israel) will flee into the wilderness (high desert country), where she will hide for 1260 days (3.5 years of the Great Tribulation, Rev 12:6).

Revelation 12:9 Satan's Fall
Then the Great Dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world, was thrown down out of Heaven to the Earth; also, his angels were thrown out of Heaven with him.
Satan and his demons will be cast out of Heaven in the middle of the Tribulation.  Up until then Satan has access to Heaven where he attends angelic convocations and accuses the brethren (Rev 12:10).  When he is cast out of Heaven, he will act desperately to destroy his enemies and set up a world dictatorship under the Antichrist.  He will fail however, because there will be believers in Israel who will have faith to the point of death (Rev 12:11).

When Satan is cast down to the Earth, he will try to destroy Jewish believers, who are personified as the woman who gave birth to Christ (Rev 12:13-17).  When he fails, knowing that his time is short, he will start a world war to destroy Israel.  This will become the War of Armageddon.  The Lord Jesus Christ will return at the Second Advent and destroy all the armies that are fighting against Israel in that war.

Signs in the Sun and Moon

There will be signs in the sky before the Second Advent.
Luke 21:25 Signs of Second Advent
There will be signs in the Sun and Moon and stars, and upon the Earth national distress and anxiety because of the roaring of the sea and the tidal waves, 26  men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the controlling powers of the heavens will be disrupted.
There will be awesome signs in the heavens in the Sun, Moon, and stars.  There will be distress in nature on the Earth and great tidal waves.  Men will faint from fear, and the controlling powers of the heavens will disrupted so that smooth orbits are no longer maintained.  The Earth will break apart from earthquakes (Isa 24:19).  It will reel like a drunkard and sway like a hut (Isa 24:20).
Luke 21:27 Second Advent
Then at that time they will see the Son of Man coming in the sky with power and great glory.
The Lord Jesus Christ will return to Earth from the sky at the Second Advent.  "In the sky" is the meaning of the Greek "in the sphere of the cloud" (Dan 7:13; Matt 26:64; Rev 1:7).  The "sphere of the cloud" is the sky.

Before the Second Advent, the Sun will be darkened (Amos 5:20; 8:9; Zeph 1:15).  The Moon will also be darkened (Isa 13:10; Ezek 32:7; Joel 2:10; 3:15; Matt 24:29; Mk 13:24; Rev 8:12).  And there will be a Blood Moon (Isa 24:23; Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20; Rev 6:12).  All of these refer to eclipses.

Isaiah 24:23 Blood Moon
Then the Moon will blush and the Sun turn pale;
For the LORD of the Armies will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before His elders will be glory.
Before the Second Advent there will be a Blood Moon.  "The Moon will blush."  "Blush" is the Hebrew rp@j* (chaphar), which comes from Arabic meaning to blush; therefore, to be ashamed.  The Lord will return to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.  He will rule from Jerusalem with His elders (Matt. 19:28; Rev. 20:4).
Joel 2:31  Blood Moon
The Sun will be turned into darkness
And the Moon into blood
Before the great and awesome Day of the LORD comes.
The Moon will be turned blood red before the Day of the Lord, which is the Second Advent.

The Sun darkened symbolizes Eclipse Testing of the man in Marriage or the Right Man Right Woman relationship (Eph 5:25-26).

The Blood Moon symbolizes Divine punishment or Eclipse Testing of  the congregation of Israel, which will suffer as a woman in labor giving birth (Rev 12:1-2).

Any Lunar Eclipse, regardless of color, can symbolize Divine punishment or Eclipse Testing of the congregation of Israel or the Church or the woman in relation to her husband in Marriage or her Right Man.

The woman will survive child bearing to bring the Savior into world (1 Tim 2:15).  Child bearing was the Judgment of the woman in the Adamic Covenant (Gen 3:16).  Through child bearing of the woman the Virgin Birth was possible (Matt 1:23-25).

May 16, 2003

The Chart of greatest eclipse at 0340/10 GMT contains a Coffin and a Wagon.  The Coffin is for burying the dead, and the Wagon (smaller than a Mystic Rectangle) is for transporting the Coffin.  The Ascendant Sign is Capricornus with the conjunction of the Red Planet and Redeemer.  Capricornus corresponds to Texas.

An application can be made immediately because R. B. Thieme, Jr., former pastor of Berachah Church in Houston, Texas, fell ill on May 14 and never returned to the pulpit.  The Lunar Eclipse followed at 10:40/10 PM CDT on May 15, Houston Time.  Thus, the eclipse occurred the next day after Thieme fell sick.  The sickness was Alzheimer's Disease, which led to his death in 2009.  Thieme, as the pastor, was the head of the congregation.  God removed him under dying discipline with the judgment of his head.

Now, the Sun was on the cusp of Taurus and Aries.  Since the other eclipses in the Tetrad have the Moon in Aries, this could be assumed to be Aries also.  However, because the Sun had been in Taurus and had not yet technically arrived in Aries, it will be left in Taurus, and the Moon will be left in Scorpius.  Therefore, the Sun is taken to be in Taurus, for the king's glory, but it is at the Bottom of Heaven, for a rich man's tomb.  Nearby in Aries is the Savior Planet, for a pastor.  In order to understand the Chart, the Sun Sign is assumed to be that of John the Baptist, the herald of the King.

The Moon was in Scorpius, for the Synagogue of Satan.  Also in Scorpius was the Last Adam, for the victim of Satan.  So, the story continues.  The head of the congregation has been removed, and the flock was counterattacked by Satan.

Matthew 26:31
Then Jesus said to them, "You will all fall away because of Me this night, for it is written, 'I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered.' "
When Jesus died on the cross, His flock was scattered.  When Thieme fell sick, his flock was attacked by Satan.  The Synagogue of Satan is a metaphor for a congregation under the power of Jezebel, the Prostitute of Babylon.  Satan attacks the Church as the Prostitute of Babylon.  If those under the power of the Prostitute are taught doctrine, Satan steals it away before it can be metabolized.  Teaching them is like pouring water on a duck.

Now, the attack of Satan on the Church was not isolated to Berachah or Thieme's extended flock.  It occurred in other congregations also.  So, the signs in the Chart do not only apply to Thieme but to other pastors and congregations as well.  Thieme with Alzheimer's just became the poster child.

Another fallout from the punishment of the Church was the hurricanes that followed.  Hurricane Isabel (Jezebel) hit North Carolina on September 18, 2003.  The Mediator Planet in Aquarius symbolizes landfall, and Aquarius corresponds to Florida, which was pounded by hurricanes in 2003 and 2004.  The Mediator was in Aquarius throughout 2003-2004.  Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005.  A hurricane symbolizes rejection of the Grace message of the pastor as a Right Woman rejects the authority of her Right Man.  Thus, hurricanes symbolize rebellious congregations and Right Women.

November 9, 2003

The Chart contains a Castle, a Coffin, and a Carafe.  A Castle is the domain of a king.  Jesus Christ was a King and a High Priest.  Church Age Believers are kings and priests.  The Castle symbolizes the Royal Family and temporal establishment that results from Jesus Christ and the Church.  It also symbolizes Jerusalem, the capital or royal city of Judah.  However, with the Castle is a Coffin along the Ascendant and Descendant.  And there is a Carafe being poured out, corresponding to the pouring out of Christ's blood for the sins of the world.

Matthew 26:27-28
27 And after taking a cup and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink from it, all of you; 28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins.
The pouring out of Christ's blood is a metaphor for His death on the cross when He died as a substitute for the sins of the world.  Those who accept the redemption solution will have their sins forgiven at Salvation.

The Sun was in Libra, for a Sovereign power, but it was in conjunction with the Bottom of Heaven, for execution, or the judgment of death.  This happened to Jesus Christ in the Crucifixion.  There were three planets nearby in Scorpius, symbolizing the strong Satanic attack that sent Jesus to the cross.

The Moon was in Aries, for Jezebel.  This also relates to the Royal Castle in that the Castle corresponds to the Galleria and surrounding buildings around Berachah Church.  The wealth on the West side of town is like the wealth of Laodicea.  The people in the royal castles may be lukewarm toward Bible Doctrine.

May 4, 2004

The first Chart associated with the Tribulation contains an overturned Castle and a Field.  The overturned Castle symbolizes Jerusalem trodden down by the Gentiles during the Great Tribulation (Luk 21:24; Rev 11:2).  A Field (rectangle) symbolizes an allotment or inheritance.  The fall of Jerusalem corresponds to loss of inheritance just as rejection of Bible Doctrine corresponds to loss of inheritance for the Church Age Believer.

The Ascendant was Capricornus with the Redeemer Planet, for being redeemed by blood.  This symbolizes the redemption solution for the punishment symbolized by the eclipse.  The redemption solution for unbelievers is faith in Jesus Christ, and for believers it is Rebound and faith application.  Capricornus corresponds to Texas, which indicates that what happened to Berachah Church is still an example of the punishment in the Church universal in spite of the selection of a new pastor for Berachah on March 28, 2004.  However, the Savior Planet in Pisces symbolizes the Savior of the congregation.  The Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ, but by application it signifies the human pastor as the under shepherd.

The Descendant is Cancer, which signifies a loss of prosperity.  The economy of the United States and the world suffered because the eclipse signified the judgment of the Prostitute of Babylon, who controls commerce.  The crisis in the US economy was revealed in the latter part of 2007.

The Sun was in Aries, for a leader's glory, but it was in conjunction with the Bottom of Heaven, for the death of a leader.  And the Moon was in Libra, for the Judgment of the woman (Gen 3:16), where the woman also symbolizes the Church.

Corresponding to the woman, the God of the Covenants in Gemini symbolized Marriage Culture as an issue.  And the Red Planet in Gemini symbolized a bloody bridegroom, corresponding to the suffering of the man in relation to the woman in Eclipse Testing.

The Morning Star was in Taurus, for the Feast of Trumpets, when the trumpets are blown to call Israel to holy assembly.  This symbolizes the ingathering of the Diaspora of Israel from all over the world at the Second Advent.  It is also the sign of a herald corresponding to Moses and Elijah as the heralds of the Second Advent.

October 28, 2004

The second Chart associated with the Second Advent contained two back-to-back Plows and a Coffin.  The back-to-back Plows are not a Grand Cross, since the ends of the square are not right angles.  The back-to-back Plows along the Ascendant, Descendant symbolize separating the sheep from the goats at the Second Advent (Matt 25:32).  The sheep will be taken into the sheepfold of Cancer, and the goats of Capricornus will be cast into Hell in the Baptism of Fire.  The God of the Covenants on the Ascendant signifies the rewards that will be given to Old Testament saints (Ps 62:12; Prov 24:12; Matt 16:27).  The judgment of the goats is also symbolized by the Redeemer Planet on the Descendant in Capricornus, for being sacrificed for sins (redeemed by blood).  In any case, the goat dies.  The back-to-back Plows are also a sign of expiation and forgiveness of sins for those who chose the redemption solution (Psa 103:12).

The Coffin is for burying the dead.  After the Armageddon War, it will take seven months to bury the dead (Ezek 39:11, 12).

The Sun was in Libra, for Sovereign power, but it was in conjunction with the Bottom of Heaven for execution.  At the Second Advent all the enemies of Israel will be executed, and Israel will be rescued, as symbolized by the Savior Planet in Libra.

The Moon was in Aries, for Jezebel, who attacks the Church and Marriage (1 Cor 6:16-17; Rev 2:20).

Virgo had three planets:

  1. Red Planet a bloody son, corresponding to the bloodshed in the Armageddon War.
  2. Almighty God Christ, the Bridegroom at the Second Advent.
  3. Morning Star the resurrection clothing of Israel, as the mother of Christ.  The dead of Israel will be resurrected at the Second Advent.

Second Tetrad (2014-2015)

The second tetrad of Lunar Eclipses begins on the night of April 14, 2014, where 14 is for the Passover.  Israel was redeemed from Egypt at the first Passover, which also symbolized the future Second Advent when the Lord would again deliver Israel with a mighty hand.

The summary of the eclipses in the second tetrad is:

First Advent

April 15, 2014 This Chart with the Focus of a Bucket on the Marriage Feast and pairs signifying the Flood, indicates behavior as in the days of Noah as a sign of the Second Advent.  The Sun is still in Aries and the Moon in Libra, for the judgment of the woman, corresponding to the Church.  A Grand Cross in the Chart indicates intense suffering.  A Catwalk with multiple oppositions between Midheaven and the Bottom of Heaven indicates the strong opposition between Heaven and Hell.

Blood Moon, 10-8-14,
            Griffith ObservatoryOctober 8, 2014 This Chart has an upside down Kite pointing to the Moon in Pisces in opposition to the Sun in Virgo.  This signifies the cursing of the death of Christ on the cross (Isa 53:5; Gal 3:13).  Virgo is taken as the Birth Sign of Christ, and Pisces as the Birth Sign of John the Baptist.  The Moon in Pisces symbolizes the Church, which is under discipline.  The Moon in conjunction with the Mediator in Pisces is a sign of Jesus Christ our Intercessor (Rom 8:34; Heb 7:24-25; 9:24).  A Plow cuts through the Kite to point to the Last Adam in Sagittarius on the Descendant, for the enemy attack that sent Christ to the Cross.  October 8, 2014 is Day 281, where 8 is for the New Birth, 14 is for the Passover, and 81 is for a Grace counterattack of Jezebel.

Second Advent

Blood Moon, 4-4-15,
            Griffith ObservatoryApril 4, 2015 This Chart has the Kite oriented vertically to symbolize the blessing of the cross.   The Kite symbolizes the Gospel message of the two witnesses, Moses and Elijah, in the Tribulation (Rev 11:3).  A Plow points to the Last Adam on the Ascendant in Sagittarius for intensified suffering as the order of the day from an enemy attack upon the two witnesses and other believers in the Tribulation.  There is a Coffin for the burial of the two witnesses after they are killed (Rev 11:7-8).  A Yod indicates critical timing pointing to the Almighty God Planet in Cancer, for a fortress.  And there is strong, multiple opposition between the Sun and Moon, emphasizing the suffering associated with the Lunar Eclipse.

The eclipse is on Day 94, for operation Footstool, corresponding to the weakness of the congregation of Israel before the Lord returns at the Second Advent to conquer the enemies of Israel and make them a footstool for His feet (Psa 110:1).

Blood Moon, 9-27-15,
            Griffith ObservatorySeptember 28, 2015 The Chart of the Second Advent contains a Wing, a Catwalk, two  Plows, and a Locomotive.  A Wing is a symbol of power, corresponding to the Lord's return at the Second Advent (Matt 24:27; Rev 1:7).  The Catwalk from Midheaven to the Bottom of Heaven symbolizes the path of the Lord's return across the great gap from Heaven to Earth.  One Plow is pointed toward the Last Adam setting in Sagittarius, for the enemy attack that the Lord Jesus Christ will put down at the Second Advent.  The other Plow is pointed toward the God of the Covenants in Scorpius, for the final Judgment, corresponding to the Baptism of Fire at the Second Advent.  In contrast, there is a Locomotive pointing to the Morning Star in Cancer, for the strategic objective of the Lord as the protector of the saints, corresponding to the sheep, who will be delivered at the Second Advent (ref. Rom 2:5-10).  Note, this passage is the principle of final Judgment for the Church (Rapture) and Israel at the Second Advent.  It is not based upon the schedule of which comes first.


The first Lunar Eclipse tetrad this millennium was a graphic illustration of the Divine punishment of the Church by cutting off the head and scattering the flock.  John the Baptist's head was cut off before the Crucifixion of Christ, which symbolized killing the Shepherd.  The Church without a head will be at the mercy of Satan, who counterattacks the Church through the Prostitute of Babylon, Jezebel.  The only solution to the power of Jezebel in the Church is to metabolize Bible Doctrine.  The release of Mystery Babylon the Great in March 2004 was the answer of the doctrine needed to overcome Satan's counterattack on the Church as symbolized by the tetrad of 2003-2004.  Those who did not learn this doctrine, never knew what hit them.

The Castle in the Chart of November 9, 2003 symbolizes the prosperity from the Royal Family, corresponding to the Galleria and Williams (Transco) Tower around Berachah Church.  Unfortunately, this also corresponds to the problem of the Church at Laodicea that failed the prosperity test, as indicated by the overturned Castle in the Chart of May 4, 2004, shortly after a new pastor was chosen for Berachah.  The overturned Castle symbolizes the loss of prosperity in the nation due to economic collapse from investments of the Prostitute of Babylon.  This became apparent when the housing bubble burst in October 2007.

The Chart of October 28, 2004 with back-to-back Plows symbolizes the separation of the sheep from the goats at the Second Advent.  Unbelievers will be sent to Hell in the Baptism of Fire, and believers will go into the Millennium.

The second tetrad of this millennium begins with a powerful Chart of the sign of Noah (Lk 17:25-27).  As in the days of Noah, people are eating and drinking and marrying, but they are not metabolizing Bible Doctrine.  Consequently, they will be destroyed through the breakdown of Marriage Culture, which Satan will exploit through the Prostitute of Babylon.

Kites appear in the next two Charts to call attention to the redemption solution.  Strong opposition between the Sun and Moon indicates intense suffering associated with the Lunar Eclipses on the Church and women.  The last Chart contains a Plow and a Field.  The Plow points to the God of the Covenants in Scorpius, for the final judgment of unbelievers on the Earth at the Second Advent.  They will be sent to Hell in the Baptism of Fire.  In contrast, the Locomotive, pointing to the Morning Star in Cancer, symbolizes the Lord as the protector of the saints at the Second Advent.
