By Teddy Chadwick

On June 15, 2011, there will be a full lunar eclipse visible only in Israel, parts of Africa, and the Middle East, as well as parts of Asia and Australia; but VERY well seen in Israel, AND visible in the night sky for a longer period of time than normal.  Arguably, this bit of info is quite significant, depending upon what you know about prophecy, eschatology, and current world events.  Let’s check into it a bit further:


A full lunar eclipse is a bit rare.  It’s called a blood moon because only the infra-red band of light gets around the earth and bounces off the moon to be seen by us, only in certain places on the globe depending on the angle.  What’s even more rare is when 4 of these blood moons happen in a row.



(Additional background about moon signs here).

What’s even more rare is when all four of these consecutive blood moons occur on YHWH’s Feast Days, commonly and erroneously known as Jewish Festivals.  (In the Bible, the Feasts are called “The Feasts of YHWH,” never “Jewish Feasts”).

So, four consecutive blood moons, all occurring on Feasts of YHWH.  And that’s what is going to happen in 2014 and 2015.  Meaning, Israel will see the world will witness full lunar eclipses on Passover 2014, Tabernacles 2014, Passover 2015, and Tabernacles 2015.

Ok, back up a little, and let’s get a few questions out of the way:

“Does YHWH use the moon for signs?”

Yes: Genesis 1:14, Luke 21:25.

“Are Feasts relevant to YHWH, and related to the moon?”

Yes: Leviticus 23.

“Are blood-red moons prophetic in Scripture?”

Yes: Joel 2:10,31; Acts 2:20; Rev. 6:12.

Update: I just received a photo of the June 15 eclipse so I’ll insert it below:

Ok, so after the June 15 2011 blood moon, we have a group of four consecutive blood moons in 2014-2015, ALL occurring on YHWH’s Feast Days.  When’s the last time this happened?
Oh, 1967-1968.   The season of the 6 Days War in Israel.  That would be the one where Jerusalem became a unified city under Jewish rule for the first time in like, 2000 years.
Four consecutive blood moons (full lunar eclipses) occurring each time on Moedim (appointed times of YHWH): namely, Passover 1967, Tabernacles 1967, Passover 1968, Tabernacles 1968.
Blood moon = full lunar eclipse
Tetrad = four consecutive blood moons
Jewish Tetrad = a Tetrad where each of four consecutive blood moon occurs on a Festival of Leviticus 23.
So, the world previously witnessed a Jewish Tetrad in ’67-’68.
When is the previous time before that?
Oh, 1949-1950.
Passover 1949, Tabernacles 1949, Passover 1950, Tabernacles 1950.
Some say that’s the fig tree blossoming, others might say it would be 1967, either way:
Mt 24:32-33, Lk 21:30-31
And the previous occurrence of four consecutive blood moons, on YHWH’s Feast Days?
1492-1493.  I believe that the significance of this could be related to the Spanish Inquisition and Columbus’ discovery of North America, which arguably became the “wilderness” that the woman of Revelation 12:6 escaped to (the Body of Messiah escaping persecution for a time).
Notice that after 1493, about five centuries pass without another occurrence of this phenomenon – until 1949, as newly reborn Israel is fighting for her life.
Then 1967-68.  Next is 2014-2015.  I wonder what is in store then?
And to start this next season off, we have blood moons in 2011: June 15 and Dec. 10.
Neither of these blood moons in 2011 occur on a Feast Day; however, they “bracket” a season which encloses the 2014-2015 Tetrad (4-in-a-row) occurring on Feast Days.
The other “bracket” would be the following blood moon on July 27, 2018.
2014-2015 is exactly in the center of the 7-year timeframe from 2011 to 2018.
Teddy’s note:  I have personally cross-checked the Feast dates for 1949, 1950, 1967, 1968, 2014, and 2015 according to Hebcal and Torah Calendar and the dates do line up with both calendars.
So, given the significant events which have happened in 1492-3, 1949-50, and 1967-8, what can we expect in 2014-5?
Who knows?  But with the nations talking of dividing the Land of Israel to create a Palestinian State, it sounds like a plan which attempts to take action against YHWH’s land:
Isa 54:15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee [Israel] shall fall for thy [Israel’s] sake… (17) No weapon that is formed against thee [Israel] shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness is of me, saith YHWH.
Jer 32:40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.
So, here’s a timeline summary:

Additional notes and figures, from:

“The last Jewish Tetrad happens to be bracketed perfectly by two central lunar eclipses which naturally define both a seven year period according to Daniel 9 and a seventy year period according to Luke 21:32, and Psalms 90:10.
“And as a final note ALL of the eclipses that fall on high holidays, happen to be visible from Jerusalem.”
Time line (Luke 21:32, Psalms 90:10, Dan 9)
1948 + 70 years = 2018
1968 + 50 years = 2018
2011 + 7 years =2018
Time line (Daniel 9)
June 2011 + (2520 Days + 30 Days + 45 Days) = July 2018
More figures below, from:

“June 15 2011(Blood moon) to July 23 2018 is 2595 days (1260 + 1335 days given to us in the Book of Daniel) and just 4 days later is July 27 2018 (Blood moon) a total of 2599 days.”
Lastly, a word from June 12 (by my count of the Omer, that’s Pentecost/Shavuot 2011!!) from Prophet Kim Clement:

“My hand is opening an extraordinary door, leading to something glorious that I’ve kept specifically for this generation. The marketplace will be shaken and my Spirit shall cause wells to spring up in places least expected.

“On Tuesday, I require all of My warriors to shut their mouths.” Wow! A silent day? Impossible. But then He proceeded, “I want to hear NO COMPLAINING or negative words proceeding from their mouths on Tuesday specifically.”

Malachi 3:16:

“Then those who feared the Lord SPOKE TO ONE ANOTHER…..AND THE LORD LISTENED….AND HEARD THEM; SO A BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE WAS WRITTEN BEFORE HIM FOR THEM THAT FEARED THE LORD, AND THAT THOUGHT UPON HIS NAME.”   The word “spoke” in Hebrew is Dabar which means to “commune, command, declare, pronounce and subdue.” The word “thought” is Chashab which means, “to value and weave.”   YES!!!!

    Thank you Teddy for this info. Very good stuff. Some I know some I did not but nice to see it all together. Janneke and I saw the blood moon here in Arabia also very clear. It went totally black after the first shadow fell. Shalom…. Tyler

    Teddy, this is Ben from the Pitman studio Horizon you came to about three years ago, remember? Brother it was so good to see you on the Five Doves site. That site has been a major source of blessings for many years, good to see you there bro. Great report also, its all falling in place isn't it? Also great to see that you're a watcher, like we all should be these days. You know I have awesome prophetic truths thats gonna cement your understanding even further! Email me and I will get those sites out to you. Like, a brother by the name of J.R. Church who recently graduated from this life. Before he left, he wrote an article about Psalms 111-118 and how they seem to be talking about these last seven years, where when Yeshua said, he will not come again until he hears the Jews say, "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord" that Psalm is the only place in the word that that appears! Also, that he HAS become the chief capstone! Also, it appears that on the day of Atonement in 2015, the Great Jubilee will be declared! It seems that God has given those who are watching, modern day time markers, to let us know where we are on His Timeline! 1917, the Balfour Declaration, then one Julbilee later, The Six day war of 1967! Its all there in Leviticus 25! His whole timeline plan laid out for all! Fast forward 50 years, and we come to 2017, which is the year that the Kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our God! Did you know also, that Psalm 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible! …. unless those days be shortened, no flesh would be saved? Teddy, the very middle verse of the whole Bible, The Servent Lamp, is Psalm 118:8 which sez, it is better to trust in God than man, is that coinsidence? He is revealing truth to His Servants, Blessed is His Wonderful name. Teddy, you are a blessing my friend. I really love your music too, so Jewish, love it. Check out a song we just finished at Richie's new studio, its on You Tube > "Just Like It Says In The Bible" You gotta stop by when yer here again. Dear brother, take care my friend, until we all get to worship The Great King in Jerusalem. Shalom …….. PS, don't believe its coinsidence there are 7 years between these two blood moons! Soon and very soon, WE ARE going to see the King! > Also, saw on TV they are holding drills all over Israel, have you taken part in them? I will pray for you and your friends safety. In Yeshua, Shalom >>> Benny Caruso

    Harold Camping was wrong about May 21, 2011 and the rapture but he might be right about October 21, 2011. Right around this time and early November, Earth will encounter the tail of the comet Elenin…and the tail of this dragon might just be slinging out poison…like cyanide. In 2010, comet Hartley's tail increased its cyanide output by five times as it neared the Sun and began to melt. I don't know if Elenin is made of cyanide like Hartley was but if it is and we're going through the tail in late October to early November, ELEnin might really turn out to be an Extinction Level Event. (nin[e]ELE[ven])

    Unfortunately you are using the wrong Jewish calendar to figure this stuff out. The current calendar is man's creation from around 350 AD. It was not used during Biblical times. Anything not based on Biblical calendar is unusable, I'm afraid. Looks like I'll have to publish my own research to show what is actually accurate.

    You have this comment.

    So, four consecutive blood moons, all occurring on Feasts of YHWH. And that’s what is going to happen in 2014 and 2015. Meaning, Israel will see full lunar eclipses on Passover 2014, Tabernacles 2014, Passover 2015, and Tabernacles 2015.

    I checked out this NASA site
    They say Israel will see only see the last eclipse and only at moon set. Sept 28 2015

    This web site says that the feast of tabernacles is October 9 2014 not the 8th which is the eclipse.
    Yours in the name of Jesus, the Christ. Stefan

  7. bob

    Well, it is interesting that only the last tetrad eclipse is visible from Israel, and at moonset. It is thought that on the day Jesus died, the moon ROSE over Israel in full total eclipse, meaning it rose as a blood moon; so having the last of the four SET as a blood eclipse would be the perfect bookend bracket to that.

  8. Shushi

    Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel wrote about events regarding Israel based on the Jubilees. He also said that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a "no-man's land." This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the holy land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally "belonged" to no nation.

    1917 (Belfour Declaration)1917 +50= 1967
    1967 (Jews take Jerusalem)1967+ 50= 2017
    1947 (Israel declared a nation)1947+70= 2017

    In Aug 2017 there is a total eclipse of the sun for N America, whatever that means for this nation.
    I follow the sighting of the new moon (crescent) to observe the moedim. This year Pesach coincided with the fixed Hillel calendar. Not clear if this will happen again for the eclipses of 2014-15…

    Shabbat shalom and shevua tov

    the balfour century is a valid concept highlighting the importance of year 2017 for israel and the church. the 100 year judgement & redemption generation timespan was important to the hebrews in egypt and the warning of noah before the flood. balfour decreed a national homeland for the jews in palestine in 1917 and adding for the one hundred year generation gives 2017, as does adding the shortened generation time of 70 years to un res 181 in 1947

    Truly, Y'shua will return soon and the signs in the heavens and the moon turning to blood are just some of the signs.
    Perhaps the people of Israel coming to believe in Yeshua/Jesus as their Lord and Saviour/Messiah is the greatest sign.
    Even so, come, Lord Yeshua
    They will say, "BaRouch HaBa BaShem Adonai"
    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

    The Jewish expulsion from Spain 1492 A.D. followed by 4 blood red moons 1493-1495 A.D.
    May 14, 1948 Israel is reborn (Major War) followed by 4 blood red moons 1949-1950 A.D.
    June 1967 (Major War) one red moon before war in April 1967 folllowed by 3 more red moons.
    2013 A.D.——-(Major War?) followed by 4 blood red moons 2014-2015 A.D.

    It seems like Syrian president Assad will fall this year or past the April 15, 2014 1st red moon but before the October 8, 2014 2nd red moon. Assad's fall from power would lead to the destruction of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1) and the Sunni Arabs would then attack Israel and their Arab armies would be crushed as stated in Psalms 83 prophecy.

  12. Lujack Skylark

    What will happen in 2013 since Four blood red moons will follow? OR will April 15,2014 pass with one red moon like what happened in the Six Day War followed by three red moons meaning the Sunni Arabs will go to war against Israel sometime after April 15,2014 and before October 8,2014?

    (1)April 15,2014 Passover blood red moon (2)October 8,2014 Sukkot blood red moon (3)April 4,2015 Passover blood red moon (4)September 28,2015 Sukkot blood red moon.

    Will 2013 A.D. be the year when Israel crushes the Sunni Arab terrorists living along all her borders in fulfillment of the Psalms 83 prophecy? Or will this prophecy fulfillment take place after April 2014 & before October 8,2014? (Major War either 2013 or 2014)

    Syrian president Assad has told his generals should he die he wants his generals to launch their rockets upon Israel’s cities. Should the Syrian commanders follow Assad’s advice Damascus will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1)

    God used the sun to help Joshua destroy Israel’s ancient enemies. (Joshua 10:12-14) Today, God uses the four red moons to warn the Israelites their enemies plans of attack.

    I see the seven years going from the feast of Trumpets in 2011 to the feast of Trumpets in 2018 when the Lord returns at the last trump of the seventh trumpet judgment.(Revelation 11:15). The feast of Trumpets is the only feast they don't know the day of hour it will begin and this is because it is the only feast that begins on the first day of the month. The feast of tabernacles is 15 days later and if you back 1260 days from then you end up on April 4, 2015 which is more than likely when the abomination of desolation is set up.

  14. Jane Langston

    Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords is indeed coming back very soon! I love Jesus! I have read each of your comments and wish to thank you for your insight. As the body of Christ, it is very important that we continue to build each other up as we continue to witness God's prophetic time clock unfold before us. Are each of you aware that President Obama signed a Peace & Safety Agreement with Israel on July 29, 2012? Is this the peace agreement that Daniel foretold? If so, it will be broken in the middle of the seven which is only a little over two years from now. The abomination of desolation that will then take place will require every human being on this earth to take a "mark" except for those whose names are written in the Book of Life because Jesus is their Savior. Is it possible that the United States will take the lead in this abomination that will be directly tied to commerce for you will no longer be able to buy or sell unless you have this "mark"? All the technology is in place for the implementation of this now. Through the Apostle John in Revelation Jesus has prepared us for this time. Careful reading of Revelation chapter 20 reveals that we will stand firm for Jesus even unto death and great will be our reward. We will come to life and reign with Jesus for a thousand years here! Jerusalem, Israel, will be our capital with Jesus as our King! Stay true to Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life!

  15. HeavensDove

    Since the time of Yeshua, there have been 7, 4 blood moons with an eclipse in the middle. This will be the 8th but this will be different. Never before in HISTORY have the 4 blood moons fallen on Jubilee! Hallelujah!

  16. HeavensDove

    I believe the Gentile Age has ended and the Messianic Age has begun. The wall that divided Jew and Gentile is coming down! Hallelujah! We are being prepared for our Bridegroom, Yeshua! One new humanity, a glorious Bride! Yes, 4 blood moons with an eclipse falling on the holidays between 2014-2015 along with Shmita and Jubilee is VERY SPECIAL INDEED! Never in history have 4 blood moons fallen on Jubilee! NEVER! To G-d be all glory!

  17. Barbara

    CHAG SAMEACH, dear Ted, from the Canadian prairies! After googling Blood Moons today this weekend at request of a dear sister and neighbor I glogged onto your website and enjoyed your research and report on this subject. Did you get a glimpse of the Pesach blood moon over Eretz yesterday?

    I've been working hard on my Living Stones manuscript this winter – so much so that I got neck and shoulder cramps from my computer and a numb thumb requiring me to move the 'mouse' to the other hand. As per the counsel of my 80 year old computer trainer a few years back, I now sit a limited time at the console! Chaval! Hope to see you soon on Skype!

    It is indeed already laid out…because the first fires of the Abomination comes from the will of man…it will be rendered to appear like God's will as it is and was written.
