About Solar Eclipses Part 3 - The Spiritual and Prophetic Significance of the Coming Solar Eclipse

Today is the summer solstice, the day with the longest amount of sunlight of the year in the northern hemisphere. We're making it an opportunity to talk about solar eclipses and the possible prophetic and therefore spiritual significance of the coming solar eclipse on March 20, 2015. (Tweet that!)

There is so much to talk about regarding solar eclipses in general, as well as that particular eclipse in relation to the tetrad of lunar eclipses, that we're only brushing the surface now. I'm sure we'll talk about these things more in the future as these events draw closer.

In April, before the last total lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014, we talked about what a tetrad is, that it is four lunar eclipses in a row. (Tweet that!) Here is a more precise definition from the new book Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs by Mark Biltz:

"…four consecutive total lunar eclipses in a row, without any partial or penumbral eclipses in between, are known as a tetrad" (p. 144).

Also in April we talked about how the tetrad we are in the midst of right now has the total lunar eclipses falling on the first and last of the seven Feasts of the LORD in both 2014 and 2015. (Tweet that!) If you missed that discussion and want to know more, please review the articles in April. (The post on April 15, 2014, has the list of related articles with links at the bottom.) 

There is also a total solar eclipse in the center of these lunar eclipses. That will occur on March 20, 2015, which on the Hebrew calendar is Nisan 1. (Tweet that!)

Here is the schedule of the four total lunar eclipses and the total solar eclipse in 2014 – 2015 (Tweet that!):

  • 1st lunar eclipse: Passover - April 15, 2014
  • 2nd lunar eclipse: Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) - October 8, 2014
  • Total solar eclipse: Nisan 1* - March 20, 2015
  • 3rd lunar eclipse: Passover - April 4, 2015
  • 4th lunar eclipse: Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) - September 28, 2015

*Nisan 1 is the first of the Jewish religious year.

You may remember when we discussed "How the Jewish Calendar Works," we learned that the Gregorian calendar that we here in America, and most countries in the west, use is based on the sun. The Muslim calendar is based on the moon. The Hebrew or Jewish calendar is based on both: the lunar cycle defines months and the solar cycle defines years.

If lunar eclipses are messages to the Jewish people (and the rest of us who are watching), do you think a solar eclipse in the center of them could be a message from God to the rest of the people on Earth? (Tweet that!) Is God getting your attention?
