Q. There’s something I don’t understand. If these are the last Blood Moons (2 in 2014 and 2 in 2015) and there will be no more this century as NASA says, are these the Blood Moons of Joel and Acts? If they are not, then the blood moons will be caused by something happening? My mind is really pondering this and could we be so close to the Tribulation!
A. The currently popular blood moon discussions all involve lunar eclipses. These eclipses occur when the earth gets between the sun and the moon partially blocking its light and causing it to turn dark orange in color. But the blood moons of Joel and Acts take place when the sun is also dark. Therefore they can’t be eclipses.
I believe the blood moon prophecy of Joel 2:31 which Peter repeated in Acts 2: 20 refers to a sign from Heaven that will tell the people on Earth that the Great Tribulation is about to begun. This sign will be fulfilled in Rev. 6:12 and is not something NASA can predict because it will be a supernatural event. It will take place during the 6th Seal judgment shortly after the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week.
