Leviticus 25:9 ESV
Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land.
Today is the day of atonement, the holiest day of the year for Jewish people.
John 14:6 ESVJesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
Yom Kippur (Hebrew: יוֹם כִּפּוּר, IPA: [ˈjom kiˈpuʁ], or יום הכיפורים), also known as Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jewish people traditionally observe this holy day with an approximate 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services.
This Wednesday October 8 2014 will come in, at 3:51 am PDT, the second blood moon, which falls on the Jewish holiday Sukkot.
Sukkot, Succot or Sukkos (Hebrew: סוכות or סֻכּוֹת sukkōt or sukkos, Feast of Booths, Feast of Tabernacles) is a biblical Jewish holiday celebrated on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei (varies from late September to late October). It is one of the Three Pilgrimage Festivals (shalosh regalim) on which the Israelites would make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem.
Below taken from Jesus On My Mind:
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.
To me it seems reasonable to say that the coming of Jesus Christ is very near and we need to be alert and prepared to hear the blasting of the trumpet when He calls His children home. Are you ready?
Joel 2:31 ESV
The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.
Revelation 6:12 ESV
When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
We do not know the hour when our Savior will call us but we can know the signs. With the turmoil of ISIS, or ISIL beheading children and Christians over seas and recently here in North America, we can know that it will be very soon.Matthew 25:13 ESV
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the. hour.
Be prepared. Be on the lookout.
