Matthew 24:42 – “Watch therefore: for you know not in what hour Yeshua will come.”

Luke 21:25-28 – “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars…. the powers of the heavens will be shaken…. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, for your redemption is near!”

James 5:7 – “Be patient therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord.”

Am I the only one asking, “Aren’t the blood moons, especially the tetrads, predictive signs? Aren’t they prophetic in nature?” Are these questions that you are asking? Has this shaken your faith in Yahweh? I pray not.

You Have Heard It Said

Didn’t many major prophecy teachers say the blood moon tetrads were pointing to major events that are expected to burgeon forth? Haven’t they shouted this assumption from the rooftops and from every media source available? But what if this assumption is not correct? What if the tetrads, instead of pointing to a coming event, point back to an already fulfilled event? Let’s take a look!

The blood moon tetrad syndromes are four total lunar eclipses in a row plus four total solar eclipses. The next Partial Solar Eclipse will be on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, and the next Total Lunar Eclipse will be on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. We will have to wait for the next Tetrad, which will be in 2032-2033, with the following eclipses: April 25/26, 2032; October 18/19, 2032; April 14/15, 2033; and October 08, 2033.

Yahweh Keeps His Promises

Genesis 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, and for appointed times of meeting, and for days, and years.”

The common descriptive saying is that a solar eclipse denotes the judgment of Yahweh upon the nations, blood moons denote the judgment of Yahweh upon the nation of Israel, and a solar eclipse occurring in the midst of four blood moons denotes the judgment of Yahweh upon the world.

Below are some of the promises I believe Yahweh has already kept:

Matthew 24:2 – “And Yeshua said to them, ‘Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.’”

The blood moons (not a tetrad) in AD 70 may have simply confirmed Yeshua’s prophecy that the Jerusalem Temple would be destroyed. Yahweh keeps his promises.

Ezekiel 36:19 – “And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed throughout all the nations.”

The blood moons in AD 70 and the tetrad in AD 1493-1494 may have simply confirmed Yeshua’s prophecy that the Israelites would be scattered to all the nations. While they were scattered to the European, Asian, and Middle Eastern nations in AD 70, it was not until the Americas were discovered that the final fulfillment of this prophecy could take place and be fully confirmed by a tetrad. Yahweh keeps his promises.

Isaiah 66:8 – “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”

Ezekiel 36:24 – “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.” (See also Isaiah 11:10-12.)

The tetrads in 1949-50 may simply confirm that Yahweh has, indeed, returned his people to their promised land. Yahweh keeps his promises.

Luke 21:24 – “Jerusalem will be trampled under foot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”

Micah 4:2 – “For out of Zion will go forth Torah, the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.”

The tetrads in 1967-68 may simply confirm that Yahweh has, indeed, returned Jerusalem to his people. Yahweh keeps his promises.

Zechariah 12:3 – “It will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples. All who burden themselves with it will be severely wounded, and all the nations of the world will be gathered together against it.”

The tetrads in 2014-2015 may simply confirm that Israel has, indeed, become that burdensome stone and that all nations are now aligned against it. Yahweh keeps his promises.

Yahweh Expects Obedience

1 Samuel 15:22 – “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen better than the fat of rams.”

Yahweh is not pleased with any person, church, or church body that brings in other practices and calls them his way of worship. Remember his reaction to the Golden Calf at Mount Sinai? Remember his reaction to the incense of Nadab and Abihu? The tetrads in 2014-2015 may have been Yahweh’s pronouncement of his disgust with the abominations in these times.


2 Peter 3:9 – “Yahweh is not slow about keeping His promises as some people think, but is patient toward you because He wants everyone to turn from sin and come to repentance.”

Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”

The Blood Moons and Tetrads are Yahweh’s primary confirmation that he is still in charge, that he keeps his promises, and that he expects obedience. Though they also often denote judgment upon the people, upon the nations, and upon the world, they are merely a secondary effect of these phenomena! Yahweh is not slow in fulfilling his promises.

The Fall Moedim [appointed times/feast days] will be fulfilled in his time to the day, hour, and minute, just as were the Spring Moedim! I have stated many times, “I do NOT set dates. Yes, the season of Yeshua’s return is upon us, and the final fulfillments of prophecies are about to be brought to fruition. Yeshua’s return may be this fall, next fall, or some other period of time. We are to be prepared to meet him when he calls but are also to be patient, watchful, alert, and continuing our labors of faith until he does.”

It is my hope that you will place your trust in Yeshua and continue to look forward to an eternity with Yahweh, Yeshua, and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh [Holy Spirit]. However, those who fail to place their faith in Yeshua will not have that joy.

Final Thought

Luke 21:28 – “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near!”

We are always to be ready for Yeshua to return. Are you ready? If not, then get ready. Exercise whatever time you have to repent and trust Yeshua for your eternal salvation. Do not test Yahweh’s patience and wait too long – the dress rehearsals will not continue much longer. May Yom Teruah [Rosh Hashanah] this year be fulfilled in the resurrection of the dead and the rapture of Yeshua’s Bride.
