Christians are not the only ones looking for meaning in the plethora of signs aligning in the heavens.
A rare alignment of four blood moons and a total solar eclipse unfolding during a Shemitah year and on biblical feast days, has a Jewish rabbi in Israel asking for special prayer.
And issuing an ominous warning.
Rabbi Amram Vaknin, described as a “mystic rabbi living in southern Israel,” is urging all Jews to pray and repent as the third Blood Moon of a tetrad cycle approaches, according to a report in Breaking Israel News.
Vaknin is not easily dismissed because he reportedly predicted the events of the Gaza flotilla and the Carmel forest fire in 2010, the Operations Pillar of Defense of 2012 and Protective Edge of 2014.
He warns that Israel is facing great judgment and potential danger at this time, according to the report.
The rabbi’s concerns have a lot to do with the number 44 and the current U.S. president.
One of Vaknin’s students, Gil Nachman, spoke to Breaking Israel News and, quoting the rabbi, explained that the numeric value of the Hebrew word for blood, dam, which is 44, alludes to the 44th president of the United States.
Vaknin predicted that the 44th president would “bring bloodshed (dam) to the Jewish people.” It should be noted that the rabbi made this prediction before President Barack Obama’s election to office, according to Breaking Israel News.
Vaknin believes that only 44 plus one, or 45, can counter the danger represented by the blood moons. This, he says, is Adam, or Man, which in this case refers to the Messiah.
“Blood Moons” author, Pastor Mark Biltz, said he agrees with Vaknin’s numerology.
“Because when you add the letter aleph to dam you get adam and aleph has a numeric value of one,” Biltz told WND.
Obama-Iran deal ominous for Israel
The next blood moon is set for Saturday night, April 4, on Passover.
“So here, on Passover, when you put blood on the doorpost you have the Hebrew letter Dalet meaning door and is also the number 4 with a blood moon over it on 4/4 which is the 14th of Nisan going into the 15th of Nisan beginning the Feast of Unleavened Bread,” Biltz said.
Get the full blood moons story – straight from the discoverer – in “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” the book and the movie, both by Mark Biltz.
The concerns about Obama are also valid, in Biltz’s view, especially now that he has made a pact with Iran on the Islamic republic’s future nuclear capability.
“And here our 44th president has signed off on a nuclear agreement with Israel’s arch-enemy who has declared in no uncertain terms they will destroy Israel,” he said.
blood_moonsIt’s interesting that in Hebrew the word for Damascus is 444, Biltz said.
“And in Isaiah there is a prophecy that Damascus will cease from being a city which has never happened before in history.”
Rabbi Vaknin called for a day of prayer at the Western Wall April 1 to encourage the arrival of the Messiah and the redemption of the Jewish people and the world.
“In these critical times, Am Israel must join together to pray to Hashem to send us Mashiach Ben David! Men and women, young and old, observant or not — the more people who come, the stronger the tefilla (prayer),” Vaknin announced on his Facebook page.
The repeated number four is also important to the sage.
Along with the value of 44 and the four Blood Moons of the tetrad, this Passover brings the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting just 4 minutes, 44 seconds.
Strong tradition of blood moon signs in Talmud
Vaknin is not the first Jewish religious teacher to associate the blood moon tetrad with Jewish redemption, according to Breaking Israel News.
“With the first and third Blood Moons in this current tetrad cycle coinciding with Passover, and the second and fourth with the Feast of Tabernacles, the connections to times of redemption run deep,” the site reported.
The Talmud states, “In [the Hebrew month of] Nisan our forefathers were redeemed from Egypt, and in Nisan we will be redeemed.”
Likewise, the Feast of the Tabernacles is associated in Jewish tradition with the battle of Gog and Magog, the final war that is said to precede the final redemption and arrival of the Messiah.”
This year is also a sabbatical, or Shemitah year, a once every seven years cycle in which the land of Israel is commanded to be left fallow and financial ledgers get wiped clean.
Jonathan Cahn, author of the New York Times-bestseller “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” has also issued warnings that a time of judgment is coming to America and the world in the form of possible stock market collapses and wars. But Cahn has stopped short of predicting such events. Rather, Cahn says “we should be aware” and people of Christian faith should be preparing themselves not only physically but spiritually for difficult times ahead. Even if the judgment doesn’t fall during the Shemitah year, Cahn believes it is guaranteed to come at some point if people don’t repent and turn back to God.
What’s this Shemitah business all about? WND has a free e-book that explains all you need to know in one quick read.
‘Voices of war’, then Messiah arrives at Shemitah’s end
From a Jewish perspective, Yahadoot.net notes that the sages in the Talmud included the following warning: “In the sixth [year there will be] voices [of war], in the seventh [there will be] war, and at the end of the shmitta, the [Messiah] son of Jesse will arrive.”
Although the Talmud never states in which seven-year cycle in history this will be fulfilled, the website suggested that thus far our modern period fits the description.
Breaking Israel News said not everyone agrees on the meaning of the rare tetrad of blood moons.
“The Blood Moon phenomenon has attracted much attention of late thanks to the efforts and solar discoveries by Root Source’s Bob O’Dell and Gidon Ariel. Not everyone is in agreement as to what the Blood Moons signify. According to O’Dell, “All the prior blood moon tetrads point to a pattern of blessing on the Jewish people. They are good news for the Jews. They are a great indicator of God’s love and commitment to the Jewish people to preserve them, and a warning to those who stand in opposition to Israel.”
The Talmud discusses the significance of astronomical events in human history, stating that a solar eclipse is a warning to the nations, while a lunar eclipse signifies danger for the Jewish people, who are likened to the moon, according to the website.
“The Sages go on to explain that this is because God sits in judgment at those times, and human actions and choices are being weighed,” the site reports. “It is a time when our mistakes may come back to haunt us.
“Rabbi Vaknin adds his voice to other religious leaders calling on their followers to pray for peace and security in Israel. Christian leaders Mark Biltz and Bob O’Dell have organized a prayer gathering for Christians worldwide to pray during the 4 minutes and 44 seconds of the total lunar eclipse late Friday night.”
I am writing this post at 2:32 PM and at 6 PM the day of Passover starts. It is in my opinion a very significant day on this year because there is going to be a very interesting lunar total eclipse tonight. This is the third of the tetrad of blood moon eclipses of 2014-2015.
These eclipses are different because they fall on the first feast of the Lord Passover and the last feast of the year the seventh feast Sukkot.
Jesus Christ fulfilled the feast of Passover by becoming the sacrificial lamb on this date. He was the perfect sacrifice to take away the sins of the world and take back the title of the earth from the usurper Satan. In Passover the servant Messiah fulfilled the law requiring the payment of death for sin. In His Resurrection He conquered death, again snatching it from the hands of Satan.
A solar eclipse (March 20, 2015) is a warning to the nations and lunar eclipses (the Tetrad 2014-2015) are a warning to Israel. This third eclipse of the Tetrad comes one day after the Antichrist (Obama) proudly announced the outlines of a nuclear deal with Iran that has put the Sate of Israel in great danger from this Satanic nation that is bent on their destruction. You reader can reach your own conclusions.
The article below by Paul Grevas is again referring us to a series of graphs he authored a while back and of which I made reference before. His work on this graphs I have used to instruct Christians and my readers on the importance of these series of 8 tetrads that follow the first and seventh feasts of the Lord.
Thank you again Paul.

In this part 2 interview of Avi Lipkin by Gary Stearman they cover in depth the election of Netanyahu and the fall of the left Labor party.
Many facts of Israel are mentioned as well as the prophecies that are coming together in this rebirth of the State of Israel.
God is protecting His people and woe to those who lift their swords against them.
We are approaching the third blood moon of the tetrad on April 4 and the conditions in the world that will lead to the Apocalypse are beginning to be seen taking shape.
Have a blessed Holy Week, Passover and Easter
The approaching blood moon eclipse of Passover and the Iranian nuclear deal
The coming blood moon eclipse of April 4 is the third of the tetrad and again it falls on Passover. It closely followed the total solar eclipse of March 20 that the shadow covered all of Europe and northern Africa all the way to the Middle East. On March 31 this round of negotiations will be ending with what appears to be a disaster for the world and Israel in particular as it gives a wink and a pass to the Iranian nuclear program.
This deal seals the fate of the coming confrontation between Iran and Israel. Jeremiah 49:34-39 describes the fate of the area of Elam on South West Iran. Ezekiel 38-39 describes the fate of the rest of Iran when they attack Israel.
Obama’s latest concession guts what’s left of the Iran nuclear deal
• Jonathan S. Tobin, Commentary Magazine
• Mar. 27, 2015, 9:14 AM
Brian Snyder/APU.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi, from left to right, pose for a photograph before resuming talks over Iran’s nuclear program in Lausanne, Switzerland, Monday, March 16, 2015.
You don’t have to be an Israeli spy to know what’s going on at the nuclear talks between Iran and the West at Lausanne, Switzerland.
As the Wall Street Journal reported this morning, the Iranians were holding their ground on yet another key point in the negotiations and, to no one’s surprise, the Obama administration is preparing to give in to them again.
This time the issue is Iran’s refusal to open its facilities up to International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors eager to see how much progress they’ve made on military research for the nuclear program.
But instead of threatening to walk away from a process that appears on track to ending sanctions on the Islamist regime over this key point, the administration is preparing to amend the current draft of the deal to allow the Iranians several years’ leeway before they’d be required to give a full reckoning about how close they are to a bomb.
What this amounts to is the West waving the white flag on effective verification of Iran’s nuclear activities. And that means that not only will Iran be able to cheat their way to a bomb, but they may very well get there even while observing the agreement that is expected to be finalized by the end of the month.
As the Journal reports:
Iran’s refusal to implement the IAEA work plan threatens to undermine the prospects for this comprehensive agreement, say diplomats involved in the talks. The ability of the IAEA and global powers to verify whether Iran is abiding by any future deal to prevent it from racing to develop a nuclear weapon depends, in part, on an understanding of its past work, according to these officials.
But rather than press the Iranians to comply with IAEA demands, American negotiators came up with what they are calling a compromise that falls far short of providing complete accountability about their work to build a bomb:
Under the new plan, Tehran wouldn’t be expected to immediately clarify all the outstanding questions raised by the IAEA in a 2011 report on Iran’s alleged secretive work. A full reckoning of Iran’s past activities would be demanded in later years as part of a nuclear deal that is expected to last at least 15 years.
Brendan Smialowski/Pool/ReutersUS Secretary of State John Kerry (L) sits across from Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif (R) as negotiators wait for a meeting at the Beau Rivage Palace Hotel March 27, 2015 in Lausanne.
The delay will be sold by the administration as a clever strategy to bridge one more seemingly intractable difference between the parties enabling the president to claim a foreign-policy triumph. But this is no minor detail.
While most of the attention in the nuclear talks has always been on Tehran’s ability to enrich uranium and therefore build a stockpile of nuclear fuel, the West’s lack of knowledge about Iran’s military research is key to any understanding of how close they might or might not be to building a weapon. Without a grasp of where they are in that process, all attempts at verification will be without an effective baseline.
Moreover, a delay of this sort makes any effort to get the information meaningless because by the time that the Iranians will be required, at least in theory, to open up their facilities to the IAEA, it will be years after sanctions will have been lifted. So even if they don’t comply on time, it will be difficult, if not impossible to call off the deal or re-impose sanctions on what the Europeans or perhaps a Hillary Clinton administration (if the Democrats hold onto the White House next year) will consider a technicality.

IAEA head Yukio Amano has made it clear that he has made “no progress” in his efforts to find out more about the Iranian program. But that has not stopped American negotiators from plowing ahead as if this was irrelevant to their quest. According to the Journal, the French, who have showed a bit more backbone in the process than the Americans, have also raised questions and put more demands on the Iranians.
In response, President Obama has let the French play a larger role in the discussion about the weaponization issue. But his purpose there appears to be to be to ensure that Paris will buy into the final deal–no matter how weak it turns out to be–not to allow their concerns to become a roadblock to an agreement.
The president’s goal here is détente with Iran, not stopping them from getting a nuclear weapon. It involves a tacit alliance with the Islamist regime in Iraq and Syria as well as a U.S. determination to retreat from the region and to allow Iran a free hand to defend its interests, a strategy that both moderate Arab nations and the Israelis believe is really acquiescence to Iran’s ambition for regional hegemony.
What’s happened with the issue of military research is merely a repetition of the same pattern of Iranian stonewalling followed by American concessions that has marked the entire process.
Since the U.S. opened up a secret negotiating track with Iran in 2013, President Obama has gradually retreated from a position demanding an end to Iran’s nuclear program to one in which it will be allowed to keep several thousand centrifuges while also refusing to tell the truth about their work toward a bomb and safe in the knowledge that a sunset clause will eventually enable them to build one after the deal expires.
With days left to go before the deadline for the talks to end, anyone who expects the administration to walk away from a deal over any detail, no matter how crucial it might be, has not been paying attention.
The series of posts by Steve K on the book The Equation author by Malcon Isted seems to confirm what the solar eclipses and the tetrad of blood moons point out for this year about the Rapture of the church and the start of the Apocalypse all in the fall of 2015. This being a Shemitah year ending on Elul 29 (Sept 13) makes a multitude of evidence supporting the fact. Our year 2015 is the Jewish year 5776. Nando http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek315-1.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek315-2.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-1.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-2.htm http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/mar2015/stevek322-3.htm Nando P.S. I do not want to be argumentative or divisive in what I will say below, but I want to point out what I see that I agree with Steve K and Ron Reese and what I think could be different to what they concluded. I have not read the book the equation so Isted discoveries are unknown to me at this point. I concur with the date of Rosh Hashanah Sept 13/14, 2015 as a very big probability of being the day for the Rapture and Resurrection of the dead. It falls on Sunday, is the end of the Shemitah year 2014-2015, a partial solar eclipse on this day and in the almost end of the blood moon tetrad of 2014-2015. I concur with the Tribulation starting on Yom Kippur Sept 23, 2015 and lasting seven years of 360 days per year to total 2520 days, ending on 2022 on Tishri 10. I believe that on Sept 23, 2015 the times and seasons of the earth will experience a dramatic change that will change the calendar from 365.2425 days to a perfect 360 days. The moon will change its orbit from 29.5 days each month to a perfect 30 days per month trajectory, making each Jewish month a perfect 30 days. So on 2022 Rosh Hashanah will still be 2520 days from 2015 and Yom Kippur will also be 2520 days from Yom Kippur 2015. I take the book of Revelation literally when it says two periods of 3 1/2 years of 1, 260 days each. God knows how He is going to do this, I could only guess badly. In any case this discussion seems to be in complete agreement of 2015 being the Rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation, Obama the Antichrist and the need to warn those who do not know Jesus that their time is very short and that judgment is coming!

March 21, 2015 Solar eclipses, blood moons tetrad, Shemitah year, Jubilee year, the start of the Apocalypse, four prophecy giants interacting together
The year of destiny is what 2015 could be called. As you will see in this video for great man of God are involved in a prophetic interaction where they all share and complement each other in their unfolding of their prophetic discoveries.
Pastor Perry Stone is the host that interviews Jonathan Cahn, Mark Biltz and Bill Salus on their major prophetic discoveries.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the work of these Holy Spirit inspired men it is a wonderful introduction to their prophetic discoveries and a base for further study.
As I am well aware of their discoveries and have read their books and seen their videos I was enthralled by their gracious and skillful weaving of these interconnecting signs and prophecies. It is a video interview that will give you tons of information about the major events that are yet to find fulfillment in the months ahead till the fall months.
My special thanks to Lynnette for providing the link to the interview.
The ramifications of the Likud obtaining 30 seats in Parliament, the Knesset, are discussed by Gary and Avi.
The most important election on Israel just took place and the people of Israel gave a mandate to govern to Bibi Netanyahu by facilitating his ability to form a new government.
This victory sets the stage for the many prophetic events that will follow on this year of destiny for the world.
Yesterday the world was warned by God using a total solar eclipse that projected the moons shadow and was visible in the areas of the world that will experience the first prophetic events coalescing on this year.
These prophetic signs include the tetrad of blood moons, the solar eclipses, the year of the Shemitah 2014-2015 the fulfillment of Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 49 and the start of the seven year Tribulation.
Wow Nando that is quite a mouthful of things to say about the year 2015 and about the election of Netanyahu. Well it is because Israel, Israel, Israel, is the center fulcrum of prophetic events to happen before the coming of Jesus Christ to set His Millennium Kingdom after the Tribulation. He will come back to Jerusalem and His throne will be there.
Satan will do his best to set his throne there and prevent Jesus from doing it, but his defeat is 100% sure. He will be put in chains for 1,000 years in the bottomless pit and the Antichrist and the false prophet will be sent directly to the Lake of Fire being the first persons to be sent there.
