Let There Be Lights in The Firmament of The Heaven to Divide the Day from The Night, and Let Them Be for Signs, and For Seasons, and Days and Years.’
Genesis 1:4 is the first mention of the sun and moon in the Bible. According to this scripture, God made lights in the heavens on the fourth day of creation to act as signs, seasons, days, and years.
Instead of physical weather patterns, the word “seasons” in this context refers to the seasons of time (such as spring, summer, fall, and winter). The Hebrew term moed, which meaning “set times,” is used in this sentence. Additionally, it alludes to predetermined intervals that God set apart for certain reasons, like as feasts and holy days.
Joel 2:31 Says:’ the Sun Shall Be Turned Into Darkness and The Moon Into Blood Before the Great and Terrible Day of The Lord Comes.’
Before the great and awful day of the Lord arrives, the sun and moon will be turned into darkness and blood, respectively. Joel 2:31.
Because it expressly mentions a set of phenomena that only occur during a lunar eclipse, this text is very intriguing. Earth’s shadow, which occurs when our planet passes between its satellite and the light source behind it, blocks our view of the sun during an eclipse (our Sun). When the moon is in Earth’s shadow, it momentarily appears dark red or reddish-orange (as opposed to being lit up by direct sunlight). Some claim that, in addition to this result, people can see stars during an eclipse as a result of light refraction through our atmosphere—a process known as atmospheric refraction!
But in Those Days, After that Tribulation, the Sun Will Be Darkened, and the Moon Will Not Give Its Light; the Stars of Heaven Will Fall, and the Powers in The Heavens Will Be Shaken.’
This alludes to the last days, when Jesus will come again. The sun will get dimmer, and the moon will change to blood. After the tribulation period, stars will fall from the sky and the powers of the heavens will be shook.
In addition to these prophecies predicting a blood moon, other passages in the Bible discuss cosmic indications that would occur before Christ’s second coming:
- Matthew 24:29-30 says: ‘Immediately after the tribulation of those days’ (this means after Christ comes back) ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven.’ These are all references to what is called “a great sign” or “the sign of Messiah’s coming.”
Acts 2:20 Says:’ the Sun Shall Be Turned Into Darkness, and the Moon Into Blood Before that Great and Notable Day of The Lord Comes.’
Acts 2:20, which paraphrases Joel 2:31, contains the earliest recorded use of the term “blood moon.” The verse states, “Before that great and remarkable day of the Lord comes, the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood.”
The moon becoming red in this instance is a metaphor for darkness. In other words, avoid visualizing actual moons transforming into fiery red balls of light when you read this text from Acts. Instead, as Joel stated previously in his book (2:2), it alludes to God’s wrath against sin and evil in the world.
While all lunar eclipses share some common characteristics, such as how they darken the sky, the term “blood moon” is only used to refer to those that happen during or just before lunar eclipses; they are also known as eclipse totality phases or total penumbral eclipse events (in comparison with partial or partial umbral). This occurs when Earth passes between our Sun and our natural satellites, obstructing some or all of the direct sunlight from reaching them.
Because totality only lasts long enough for light escaping at various angles through our planet’s atmosphere to make its way around it again and onto our celestial neighbor with enough time to spare before daylight returns at sunrise/sunset times outside those locations where they occur worldwide throughout the year, total eclipses are typically the only time they are visible.
And the Sun Became Black as Sackcloth of Hair, and the Moon Became Like Blood.’ Revelation 6:12
I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and there was a tremendous earthquake, and the sun turned into sackcloth of hair, and the moon turned into blood, according to Revelation 6:12. The Bible’s book of Revelation details a sequence of occasions that precede the end of the world. Wars, epidemics, famines, and natural calamities are a few of these occurrences. One of these omens that Jesus Christ would soon return to Earth as King and Judge over all humanity is the blood moon phenomenon.
The Bible Talks About Eclipses Several Times.
The Bible talks about eclipses several times. The Bible contains two references to eclipses in the Old Testament and one reference in the New Testament. An eclipse is when a celestial body (such as the sun or moon) passes directly behind another celestial body in its orbit causing it to be obscured by shadow.*
