It was back in 1967 when there were four blood moons on Jewish feast days, and the nation of Israel fought the Six-Day War, recapturing Jerusalem.
Two decades before that, there were four blood moons on feast days, just after Israel was reborn as a nation after some 2,000 years.
The same phenomenon occurred shortly after Spain expelled the Jews in 1492.
So it’s no wonder that people who watch the signs in the heavens are expecting something to happen soon as four blood moons occur on feast days in 2014 and 2015.
The Bible affirms God uses the sun, moon and stars for signs and seasons. It records that a star led the wise men to Jesus after his birth, and the sun stood still as Joshua led Israel to victory in battle.
Last spring, and just a few weeks ago again, millions stared in awe at the night sky as blood moons appeared on two feast days.
Pastor Mark Biltz, the author of “Blood Moons,” the inspiration for a documentary movie of the same name, sees a connection between what is happening in today’s world and the “signs in the sun, moon and stars.”
“God is offering, through these astronomical signs, an invitation to get on his calendar,” he said.
Though the last two of the four rare blood moons — appearing on the biblical holidays of Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot — will not happen until April and September of 2015, interest in the heavenly signs is not waning.
