The Tetrads are important and are part of God’s plan to warn Israel and the world.
I concluded wrong about the Tetrad signaling the anti-christ breaking the treaty with Israel, but it does signal trouble for Jacob.(As in the time of Jacob’s trouble) and for the great day of the Lord. If the tetrads were not on a feast day it would not spell trouble but these eclipes whick are on feasts days does as I will explain what Mark Biltz discovered in 2008 or 2009. You may want to get your Bible out and keep it open to read references. There were many many more references but for the sake of time and space I elected to add only the following. First some basics to the Jewish traditions and God’s feasts.
The Feasts of the Lord (not Israels’, not ours, but the Lords) is actually prophecy of what God planned from the very beginning of time as we know that He is not a hap-hazard about anything. The Spring Feasts were dress rehearsals for His First Coming to the very day. They include Passover(Yeshua died), Feast of Unleavened Bread(Yeshua was in the Grave), Feast of First Fruits(Yeshua rose),and Feast of Pentecost(Holy Spirit Ruach HaKodesh poured out).
The Fall Feasts are the dress reshearsals for His second coming to the very day! The Fall Feasts are Feast of Tom Teruah or Feasts of Trumpets(Jacob’s Trouble begins and repentance comes), Feast of Yon Kippur(Israel calls upon Messiah and Redemption comes), and Feasts of Tabernacles:(The Millennial Reign begins and rejoicing comes).
Le 23:1,2 “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.” Holy convocations are dress rehearsals that were to acted out each year by the Jewish people for the real deal when it occurred(as in soon to come). Feast in Hebrew is Moad which means an appointment or appointed time.
In the Torah the following events will happen on this day(Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah or Day of Blowing the Trumpets):
The Time of Jacobs trouble
The Day of the Awakening Blast (rapture)
Yom HaDin/Day of Judgement/The Opening of the Boods/Opening of the Gates
Yom Hakesh (The Hidden Day)Zeph 2:1-4; Ps 27:5; Is 26:20-21
Ha Kiddushin/Nesuin (Wedding of the Messiah) Ha Melech (Coronation of the Messiah).Joel 2:15,16; Jer 23:5-6; Jer 33:15-16.
Remember that Messiantic Jews use the Bible and the Torah in their readings for each service.
Gen 1:14 “And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night: and let them be for signs(Owth which means in the sense of appearing; a signal as a flag, stars) and for seasons(Mow’ ed which means festivals, an appointment, fixed time or season) for days and years:” The Hebrew calendar is the annual calendar used in Judaism. It is based upon both the lunar cycle(which defines months) and the solar cycle which is God’s calendar and defines years. This is in contrast to the Gregorian calendar(ours) which is based solely upon the solar cycle.
1 Th 5:1-5 “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a theif in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destructio cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.“ God has given us the answers in His WORD to all our questions so we will not be overtaken as a thief. In the readings of the Messiantic Jews they read the following scripture that is for The Day of the Awakening Blast(rapture): Dan 12:2; Is 26:19; 1 Thess 4:16, 17;
The Feast of Trumpets is always on the new moon and because of the Disaspora it was celebrated for 2 days and was known as one long day. Because it’s the first day of the month, was 2 days long, and was based on the sighting of the New Moon by two witnesses it’s known as the Feast where no one knows “The Day or the Hour” it would begin!
Now on the Feast of Trumpets the shofar is blown 100 times and there are three sounds made with it:
Tekiah which is one long straight blast.
Shevarim which is three shorter blasts.
Teruah is 9 quick blasts in short succession.
This series is blown 11 times for a total of 99 blasts and the final blast is known as “The last Trump”. 1 Cor 15:51-53 “Behold I will shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
We read in Joel 2:31 that “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.” (There will be a total solar eclipse and a total lunar eclipse before the great and terrible day of the Lord.) The following dates linking eclipses to the coming of the Messiah are as follows:
2014 – Solar eclipse on 4/15/14 – Passover
2014 Feasts of Trumpets is between Passover and Sukkot(Tabernacles)
2014 Solar eclipse on 10/8/14
2015 Total Lunar eclipse on 3/20/15 – Adar 29 (Nisan 1)
2015 Solar eclipse on Passover 4/4/15
2015 Partial eclipse on Feast of Trumpets 9/13/15
2015 Yom Kippur(feast of atonement) 9/23/15 and year of jubliee proclaimed?
2015 Total Solar eclipse 9/28/15 on Feast of Tabernacles(Sukkot)
The Shemittah Year on the Hebrew Calendar is 5775 which is 2015 and we know that the Jubilee Year is preceeded by a Shemittah Year.
Colossians 2:16,17 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: which are a shadow of things to come.” Biltz gives the recaptured date of Jerusalem to begin his calculations of the 49 year cycle. From June 7, 1967 when Jerusalem was restored to Israel and began to be built up in troublous times is 49 x 360 = 17,640 days which puts the date at September 23, 2015 which is Yom kippur 2015(Tabernacles) !!
Now I think all of this is very plain and significant in regards of our Lord coming for us. I know this is a lot of information and I pray that you will do your own studying and use your discernment that the Holy Spirit gives to you. So I have finally concluded that Feasts of Trumpets this fall will be when we are taken to be with the Lord forever. If He does surprise me before then, I will be estatic.
