We are less than 24 hours out from President Trump's much anticipated first State of the Union address and less than 48 hours out from one of the rarest eclipses in years. The moon, which will be near perigee (thus a super moon), will also be undergoing a total eclipse (a blood moon lasting for more than an hour), and it will be the second full moon in the same month (commonly called a "blue moon").
Joel 2:31 and Acts 2:20 tell us that the order of celestial events preceding the Day of the LORD will be a darkened sun, followed by a blood moon. If the Great American Eclipse was the darkened sun piece of the puzzle, perhaps this blood moon is the missing piece, which could mean the Day of the LORD begins soon, perhaps even this year. What makes this Super-Blue-Blood Moon even more amazing is that approximately two-thirds of the world's population will be able to see some or all of the total phase of the eclipse.
This rare trifecta event is happening just six to seven weeks before the 70th biblical year since Israel's rebirth begins (March 17th, 18th, or 20th, depending on different interpretations of the biblical calendar). March 1948 witnessed the beginning of the year in which the Jewish people declared their independence and the State of Israel was born. We are just weeks away from the 70th year since that pivotal time. While 2017 was an amazing year and had numerous important anniversaries in the realm of Bible prophecy, 2018 arguably contains the biggest anniversary of all: Israel's 70th birthday on May 14th. 70 years is the biblically-defined length of a generation (Psalm 90:10).
It should also be noted it was just reported that researchers have finally deciphered a piece of a Dead Sea Scroll that argued for a 364-day calendar, which is the calendar described in the Book of Enoch, a book directly referenced in the Bible (Jd. 1:14–15). The apocryphal Book of Jubilees also uses the 364 day calendar. 364 x 70 years after Israel's rebirth is Friday, February 16th, so the following calendars will all have the 70th anniversary of Israel's rebirth happening in 2018, over the span of the next few months:
- Enoch Calendar
- Jubilees Calendar
- Karaite Calendar
- Jewish civil calendar
- Julian Calendar
- Gregorian Calendar
- Standard biblical calendar (Aviv to Aviv)
Only the prophetic calendar referenced in Daniel 9, which appears to use 360-day years, has the anniversary fall in a different year (2017). Was 2017, with an unprecedented myriad of patterns and signs—including of course the ultimate sign—a prelude to 2018?
In an only-God-could-orchestrate-that kind of incredible peculiarity, Donald Trump will be delivering his first State of the Union address on the eve of this Super-Blue-Blood Moon. Trump was actually born on the same day as a total lunar eclipse (Blood Moon): June 14, 1946, exactly 700 days before Israel's rebirth (and was 777 days old, 77 days after Israel's rebirth). He will be delivering this address as Israel is about to reach its 70th year. Trump was 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old on his first day in office (link) and will be 71 years, 7 months, and 17 days old during Wednesday's Blood Moon (link).
Patterns imply design, a fact that the secular and deistic Christian world blindly (and foolishly) disregards. If you're walking through the desert and stumble across a Boeing 747, you don't assume that millions of years of wind, erosion, and sand turned into an airplane. Common sense tells you that would be impossible. One million, one billion, or even one trillion years of natural processes could never form an airplane, yet so many today believe the natural world could coincidentally produce things one million times more intricate than an airplane, such as life or even the number patterns I mentioned in the previous paragraph. Wake up world.
