Blood moon eclipse on April 15 is a special event
The Blood Moons and darkening of the Sun
Below is another presentation of the Blood Moons
I believe that these Blood Moons may indeed be prophetic signs in relation to Israel.
Not only did John Hagee talk about these occurrences, but Marvin Rosenthal wrote about them when he connected them with the Day of the LORD in many passages in the Scriptures.
He clearly explained from Scripture that the Day of the LORD is not the total 7 years of Daniel’s Seventieth week, but is the Seventh Seal in which all the Wrath of God is contained.
Joel 2:30,31 predicts that the Blood Moon and the darkening of the Sun will take place before the Day of the LORD. In Rev. 6:12-17 the Sixth Seal has the Blood Moon and the darken sun and at the end of Rev. 6:16,17 It says “the wrath of God is come.”
Joel 2:30-32 (KJV)
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
This Joel passage is also mentioned on the day of Pentacost.
Acts 2:18-21 (KJV)
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Rev. 6:12-17 is the fulfillment of all the other predictions regarding the Day of the LORD which is the Day of God’s wrath. This time takes place in the Seventh Seal and begins in the Eighth chapter of Revelation with the Trumpet and the Bowl Judgments.
Revelation 6:12-17 (KJV)
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
In the Seventh chapter of Revelation there is the sealing of the 144,000 Jewish Witnesses and the great multitude of Gentiles that are saved. Then comes chapter 8 in which there is at first a great silence and then the pouring out of God’s Wrath on all the unbelieving world.
Marven Rosenthal in his book The Prewrath Rapture of the Church believes that the Church will be Raptured sometime before the Wrath of God is poured out.

Hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.
