CAUTION: I COULD BE WRONG.
 
God is always right and these are His prophecies, not mine.  I'm just a fallible human who listens to His Spirit and studies His written Word. I could have missed something, misunderstood or miscalculated. Don't do anything rash or stupid like quitting your job, selling your home, giving away your money or possessions, cancelling your insurance or not paying the rent: just go about your normal daily life until the signs begin and Jesus appears.
 
Everyone's looking at the moon
 
"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 sacred appointed times (moedim), and for days, and years" (Genesis 1:14)
 
"There will be SIGNS IN SUN AND MOON AND STARS; and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves... And then SHALL THEY SEE the Son of man COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory": And WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN... then LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR". (Luke 21:25-28)
 
The coming tribulation and collective rapture of living believers are unprecedented events in human history.  It's only fitting that they should be accompanied by unprecedented events in the heavens.  What we are about to see HAS NEVER BEFORE HAPPENED in 5,000 years of recorded human history:
 
1. A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE -- on March 20, 2015 -- right smack in the MIDDLE OF four lunar eclipses (two preceding it, two following it)
 
2. Flanked by TWO TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSES that happen to fall precisely on the feasts of Passover and Sukkot.
 
 
 
3. A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on a Feast of the Lord, namely Rosh Chodesh Aviv (Numbers 10:10; Isaiah 1:14; 1 Samuel 20:18).  That is the Rosh Chodesh that kicks off the 3½-year tribulation (Colossians 2:16-17).
 
4. A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on THAT DAY that also happens to be THE TRUE "New Year" (the REAL Rosh Hashanah) on God's calendar (Exodus 12:2, Ezekiel 40:1)
 
5. An eclipse visible in that area of the world that comprised the Roman Empire in the first century A.D. This is significant because it's THAT area of the world that will become once again center stage, and from where Antichrist and his 10-king coalition will emerge (Daniel 7:25).
 
 
6. Last but not least, the total eclipse will be visible from Patmos -- where John was when he wrote the Revelation -- and described what he saw at the opening of the 6th seal (Revelation 6:12).
 
Nothing like this has EVER BEFORE been seen.  The closest thing to this event took place in 795-796 A.D.  That was THE ONLY OTHER time in recorded history when a total solar eclipse occurred IN THE MIDDLE OF four total lunar eclipses.  However, that solar eclipse didn't fall on a Feast, the lunar eclipses did not coincide with Passover and Sukkot, and the area where the eclipse was visible was STRICTLY Australia and Antarctica, which are sparsely populated and have NO ESCHATOLOGICAL RELEVANCE.
 
Natural lunar eclipses are NOT "blood moons".  They DO NOT signal the Rapture of THE CHURCH, but rather, important events in Israel, since there's unequivocal scriptural connection between the moon and Israel (Genesis 37:9-11; Numbers 10:10; Psalm 81:3; Jeremiah 31:35-36; Revelation 12:1).
 
The significance of the total lunar eclipses on Passover and Tabernacles is that Antichrist RETURNS FROM THE ABYSS on Passover (Daniel 11:29).  And his 3½-year reign ENDS, when he's THROWN INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE on Sukkot, at Jesus' Second Coming (Revelation 19:20).
 
That 3½-year period will be the time Jeremiah 30:7 referred to as "Jacob's trouble".
 
The duration of the tribulation is confirmed in Daniel 12:7:
 
Your English Bibles read "time, times, and half a time".  However, the Hebrew is lemoed (a Feast), moedim (2 Feasts) wahetsi (and HALF): Passover to Passover (1 year), to TWO MORE PASSOVERS (3 years) and HALF (6 months later) Sukkot.
 
These lunar eclipses are mainly A SIGN TO ISRAEL that a brief, but VERY DIFFICULT PERIOD lies ahead, which will end (thank God!) on Sukkot 2018.
 
They are the "two witnesses" required by Torah to "establish a matter" (Deuteronomy 19:15) IN THE SKY.
 
There will be Two HUMAN Witnesses ON THE EARTH as well (Revelation 11:3).
 
However, it's not THE MOON that the Church should be looking at, BUT THE SUN:
 
The SUN turning black is THE MAIN SIGN given -- over and over -- in Scripture after Scripture, TO INDICATE THE BEGINNING OF the tribulation, followed by the Rapture:
 
"For the stars of heaven and its constellations shall not give their light: THE SUN SHALL BE DARKENED IN ITS RISING, AND THE MOON SHALL NOT CAUSE ITS LIGHT TO SHINE" (Isaiah 13:10).
 
"THE SUN WILL BE TURNED TO DARKNESS AND THE MOON TO BLOOD before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD."   - Joel 2:31
 
"Immediately with the tribulation of those days "'THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken." (Matthew 24:29)
 
"THE SUN TURNED BLACK LIKE SACKCLOTH MADE OF GOAT HAIR, THE WHOLE MOON TURNED BLOOD RED" Revelation 6:12
 
In every one of these verses THE SUN is mentioned BEFORE the moon. In every one of these verses THE SUN is the main focus, NOT the moon.
 
This means the tribulation begins WITH THE SOLAR ECLIPSE and other signs on Rosh Chodesh Aviv and the collective Rapture takes place 10 days later, on Aviv (Nisan) 10, WHICH IS THE EXACT DAY on which the Israelites CROSSED OVER the Jordan and ENTERED INTO the Promised Land (Joshua 4:19).
 
Let THE BOOKSELLERS watch the two so-called "blood moons" that are left.
 
‘Cause NEITHER ONE is a REAL blood moon. And NEITHER ONE will bring the Rapture.
 
Me? I'm watching for THE SON (sun).
