I have had this project on back burner for awhile and even now I will just present it briefly so you will have information that you can hopefully use to make decisions in the coming weeks and months ahead.
As children, the first cycle we become aware of is the cycle of seasons. Growing up on the Gulf Coast we had two seasons, hot and rainy, and cold and rainy. A mere 120 miles north of us, at my grandparents homes, there were 4 seasons. It wasn’t until many years later, while a student at Washington Bible College under the instruction of Dr. G.A. Miles, I learned about some of the biblical cycles. Thirty plus years later I have begun to realize there are numerous cycles, biblical and otherwise that exert influence over the way men act, conduct themselves and also, conduct their business affairs. It is the later that I want to talk about briefly.
On September 13, 2012 I was listening to TruNews, hosted by Rick Wiles, and the guest was a Dr. Steve Puetz. I have included the recorded program here: Trunews 09/13/12
In this broadcast Dr. Puetz gives several criteria that have to exist in order to predispose the stock market for a crash. I think many of you will agree that the state of the world economy is much worse than it was in 2007-08 and that another crash would be many times worse than the setback of 2007. I want to present some interesting tidbits.
Ten Biggest Single Day Losses in the Stock Market:
If you look at the dates above you will see a pattern emerge, or at least I saw a pattern emerge. The majority of these dates are in September and October. So what? When I was a kid the biggest and brightest moons occurred in the fall and we called it a “harvest” moon (sometimes we also called them hunter’s moon or stalker’s moon). I imagine that nowadays they would be referred to as Super Moons but is technically a different phenomenon. The next occurrence of a super moon will be 9/9/2014. (This date was also given by David Nabhan as the next possible date for earthquake action in southern California. David has some very though provoking observations.) Next, allow me to present what the Wall Street Journal called the “Greatest Crashes” in one article.
- October 29th 1929
- October 19th 1987
- October 9th 2002
- September 29th 2008
I found it very thought provoking that all of the “great” crashes occurred in the months of September and October. Here is where I want to inject the idea of the “blood” moons. If you research the idea of the blood moon you will find some people who say it is synonymous with the Harvest Moon that I mentioned earlier.
Blood Moons, Solar Eclipses and YHWH’s Feast Days:
Being the loyal readers that you are, I am sure that by now you are familiar with Leviticus 23 and YHWH’s feast days outlined in that chapter. Mr. Hagee and Biltz have made a lot of money promoting the idea, as well as their own books, of blood moons, feast days and what it all means. Traditionally, in legend and folklore, blood moons have been associated with impending judgement, bad omens, bad tidings, etc. Mr. Hagee and Biltz have been promoting the idea of a tetrad of blood moons as rare, only 8 in 2000 years, but I would like to go even farther and point out that it is possible that we may and I want to reiterate, may, have a sextet of blood moons that align with YHWH’s feast days.
If you read the comments in Part II you will see how the holy days are computed in accordance with scripture. The beginning of YHWH’s calendar in 1 Aviv (also spelled Abib). Each subsequent month begins at the sighting of the first sliver of the New Moon. (According to NASA the New Moon is the dark of the moon whereas according to scripture the new moon is the first sliver of the moon. This generally occurs every 29.53 days but since the first sliver is sighted near the setting sun in the west it is often difficult to sight the first sliver which can be as little as 2% but as much as 8% of the lunar surface.) So please understand that the dates that I will give below are approximate according to when we would anticipate the sighted moon and NOT the Jewish Calendar which we know is incorrect. The following are blood moon dates and the feasts they may correspond with.
- April 15, 2014 Passover* (Photo above)
- October 8, 2014 Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)
- April 4, 2015 Passover
- September 28, 2015 Sukkot
- March 23, 2016 Passover
- September 16, 2016 Sukkot
Next, the following are solar eclipse dates and the corresponding feast of YHWH that they may align with.
- October 23, 2014 (no feast date)
- March 20, 2015 New Year (1 Aviv)
- September 13, 2015 Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets)
- March 8/9, 2016 New Year
- September 1, 2016 Yom Teruah
- February 26, 2017 (no feast date)
If you look at the list of solar eclipses you will see two dates that do not have a corresponding feast date. I am giving these dates so that you can now compare the blood moon dates with the solar eclipse dates. What you are looking for is to see an alignment between a full moon within 6 weeks of a solar eclipse. The first one that you see will be on October 8th (full) blood moon and the solar eclipse occurring just two weeks later. Also, remember Dr. Puetz did not specify a blood moon but just indicated a full moon. He also said that the full moon could be on either side of the date of the solar eclipse but it was more common for the full moon to come first. His notable exception was October 29, 1929. Remember, we cannot discount the full moon tomorrow as it will also be a “super” moon. Please remember, I am not making any predictions based on this information, I just thought that it might pique your interest.
I wanted to keep this as short as possible, just present some facts and opinions for you to look at and possibly be aware of an impending financial collapse. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
