25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:25-27
Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses
NASA says there will be 12,064 lunar eclipses between -1999 BC and +3000 AD.
Of these 12,064 lunar eclipses, 3,479 will be total lunar eclipses. That’s an average of less than one total lunar eclipse per year. It is an average of 2.5 lunar eclipses per year of "total plus partial" lunar eclipses.
During that time there will be 142 Lunar Tetrads (four total lunar eclipses in a row, with no intervening partial lunar eclipse). 62 will occur between 1 AD and 2100 AD. Of the 62, 8 will occur on Biblical Feast Days, so they are called "Biblical Tetrads". The 8th "Biblical Tetrad" occurs in 2014-2015 and there will not be another "Biblical Tetrad" for almost 600 years. We are in the time of this tetrad now.
The chances of any lunar eclipse occurring on any particular day, whether total or partial, is less than 3/365. The chances of one occurring on particular days 4 times in a row would be 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 x 3/365 = or about one in 100 x 100 x 100 x 100 = one in 100 million days, or once in 273,000 years. Nevertheless they have occurred on the first day of Passover and Tabernacles 7 times since 1 AD, and are getting ready to occur again in 2014 and 2015. Statistically, they should probably NEVER HAPPEN.
In 2014, the first of 4 total lunar eclipses occurred on Passover (First Feast Day), April 15, 2014, followed by a solar eclipse on April 29, 2014, then the second total lunar eclipse occurs on the Feast of Succoth or Tabernacles (Last Fall Feast Day), October 8, 2014, followed by another solar eclipse on October 23, 2014.
In 2015, the Jewish religious year begins with the total solar eclipse March 20, 2015, then two weeks later the third total lunar eclipse occurs on Passover, April 4, 2015, and then the civil year beginning with the partial solar eclipse on September 13, 2015 followed two weeks later by the fourth total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth, September 28, 2015.
Tetrads of four sequential lunar eclipses with no intervening partial lunar eclipses occurs 6 other times in this century, but this is the only time it occurs on the Jewish holy days of Passover and Feast of Tabernacles.
The last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967-1968, probably related to the recapture of Jerusalem by Israel. The time that the tetrad occurred before this was in 1949-1950, probably related to Israel becoming a nation. Before this time, the last occurrence was 1493-1494, probably related to the expulsion of the Jews from Spain.
Since 1 AD, a "Biblical tetrad" has occurred on these holy days a total of 7 times. In 2014-2015, it will be the 8th time. It won't occur again for another 500 years. Passover, April 15, 2014, total lunar eclipse (Partial solar eclipse, April 29, 2014) Feast of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014, total lunar eclipse (Partial solar eclipse, October 23, 2014)
(Jewish Civil New Years Day, total solar eclipse, March 20, 2015) Passover, April 4, 2015, total lunar eclipse (Feast of Trumpets, partial solar eclipse, September 13, 2015) Feast of Tabernacles, September 28, 2015, total lunar eclipse
Also, what is interesting is that each Lunar Triple has a total solar eclipse on the outside of it. The outside total solar eclipse on the "before" Lunar Triple is actually the 3rd total solar eclipse in the group of 3 total solar eclipses on the first of Av, maybe linking these together in a picture.
And, between each Lunar Triple and the Lunar Tetrad are four solar eclipses (total, annular or hybrid), again bringing symmetry to the picture and possibly highlighting the Tetrad again.
And notice how both Lunar Triples have four partial (not total, annular or hybrid) solar eclipses associated with them in exactly the same arrangement. Here are the dates of the solar eclipses associated within the Lunar Triples and Lunar Tetrad. All dates are obtained from NASA eclipse website. All the solar eclipses on either side of the Lunar Tetrad are exactly equally distanced from the center of the Lunar Tetrad. For instance the two solar eclipses closest to the center of the Lunar Tetrad, October 23, 2014, and March 20, 2015, are the same distance on either side of the January 5, 2015 date. This same layout applies to all ten sets of the 20 solar eclipses.
Total, annular and hybrid solar eclipses are very similar to each other, versus a partial solar eclipse. A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the Moon completely obscures the intensely bright light of the Sun, allowing the much fainter solar corona to be visible. An annular eclipse occurs when the Sun and Moon are exactly in line, but the apparent size of the Moon is smaller than that of the Sun. Hence the Sun appears as a very bright ring, or annulus, surrounding the outline of the Moon. A hybrid eclipse (also called annular/total eclipse) shifts between a total and annular eclipse. At certain points on the surface of the Earth it appears as a total eclipse, whereas at other points it appears as annular. Hybrid eclipses are comparatively rare.

COINCIDENTAL?? The final Super Blood Moon occurs on 9/28/2015. It may be interesting to see what date occurred exactly 7 Biblical years before, inclusive of that date. 7 x 360 = 2520 days before was November 4, 2008. What happened on that day?? Was a covenant with many confirmed via an acceptance speech?
