Blood Moon Tetrads
The internet is calling our attention to a series of lunar and solar eclipses that are expected to occur on subsequent Jewish holidays in 2014-15. This is supposedly an exceedingly rare coincidence and a possible "sign in the heavens".
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come. (Old Testament, Joel, Chapter 2)
The groups that are calling attention to these "Blood Moon Tetrads" are claiming they could mark the Second Coming of Christ in 2016 with the assumption that Daniel's prophetic 70 "Shabuas" begins in 1947 with the creation of the State of Israel (Dan 9:2). Shabua is a useful prophetic word that can mean week, or year depending on the context.
However, I do not believe this interpretation for several reasons:
1. The Bood Moon Tetrads do not mark the Second Coming of Christ but instead the Abomination of Desolation. The "Great and Terrible Day" Joel is talking about is the day of burning and invasion of heathen armies associated with the Abomination of Desolation (Trumpet 5 in Revelation).
2. Many calling attention to the Tetrads are claiming they mark the Second Coming. However, we know from the Book of Mormon that in the Last Days we can expect people to claim "the time is past".
3. I believe Daniel's 70 "Shabuas" do not start in 1947, but in 1950 with the "Law of Return". This is the command to build up Jerusalem that Daniel refers to in Dan 9:25.
4. Just like in the Meridian of Time, Satan sought to "change the times". This changing of the times resulted in the rise of many false Messiah's before and after Jesus Christ despite the seemingly clear prophecies leading up to Christ's birth.
5. No man knoweth the day nor the hour of Christ's return. However, that doesn't mean scripture doesn't tell us when the Tribulation events are to occur. And once we are safe in Zion, does it really matter at that point?
This means that the 7-year Tribulation may begin (Abinidi's Fire) this year in 2013 which is 63 years after the "Law of Return" (Dan 9:26). With all the FEMA preparations and the Globalist desire to get the US in a war with Syria, Iran, and North Korea all at the same time; we could be looking for an isolated nuclear detonation in a US city and a declaration of martial law. Such an event could be the inaugural event opening the 7-year Tribulation period.
A limited nuclear event would get the US involved in 3 terrible simultaneous wars. These revenge-filled wars would serve to make the US appear to be the bullies of the world giving Russia and China a case to strike back without much objection by the rest of the world.
A war with Syria fulfills Isaiah 17:1-3 which says "When Damascus ceases to be a city and becomes a ruinous heap.... the fortress of Ephraim shall cease". The Great prophecy of the Flood was the death of Methuselah, the Oldest Man Man ever to live. Maybe there is a parallel prophecy involving the oldest city in the Last Days.
A war with Syria and Iran re-fulfills the prophecy in Daniel 8 regarding Alexander the Great (Goat) going to war against the Ram: Medes (Syria) and Persians (Iran). It may be that America turns out like Greece and is divided into 4 like Greece was after going to war with Persia following the death of Alexander. Google the map "Divided States of America" to see how the US is projected to be divided up. This map was leaked from Russia several years ago.
Patriarch Wolfgramm saw Northern Utah get suffer a nuclear detonation. Could Wolfgramm's vision be part of the nuclear Abomination of Desolation "that surely must be" or a separate prophetic precursor "Abinadi's Fire" event? You may know that Hill AFB services all US ICBMs. Thus it is a very strategic target to strike early on. You may not know that FEMA has built a super-morgue facility in downtown Salt Lake City. FEMA was supposed to be prepping for Katrina and Superstorm Sandy-like events. However, instead of hurricane or SARS/Flu preparations, FEMA has been instead building relocation centers, cemeteries, buying bullets, MRE's, body bags, grave liners, mass-casualty drills, and building a radiological evidence processing center here at SRS . I consider all these preparations to be purposeful.
With the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation in 2013, We could then expect the nuclear Abomination of Desolation in 2016 "in the midst" of Daniel's final 7 "Shabuas" and "After the election but before the inauguration" of the US President according to President George Albert Smith per Bro Horne. We then could expect Zion established around 2020 (Isaiah pun on seeing eye to eye?).
The Year 2020, by the way, may be a Jubilee Year, the 120th and final Jubilee since Adam left the Garden of Eden. This assumes that 1820 and the Restoration marked the 116th Jubilee. (The restitution of all things since the world began).
Just at the time when North Korea is threatening a detonation of a nuclear device in a US city; President Obama is cutting back and furloughing Customs personnel at our ports and borders.
