Why Are Blood Moons Quoted In The Bible?

My Prayer: Dear God, Adonai, Jehovah, El Chaddai, You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. As You were with us to begin this week, so stay with us as it ends. Give us faithfulness this day and all the days of our lives, that we might one day inherit Your crown of life. We know that many do not know You or acknowledge You. Send Your Holy Spirit to those who have forgotten or rejected You, that they might know the comfort and joy of Your Son’s life and death for the whole world. Bring the lost children back into Your fold , that we might all rejoice together in Your goodness and grace. We pray in the name of Your precious Son, Jesus Christ , Amen

Since we have 2 blood moons in 2022, I thought I’d share what the prophet Joel shared about Israel in relationship to what is happening today and what’s to come written about by the Apostle Paul in his first letter to believers in Thessalonica. There won’t be another blood moon until March 2025. Following are the two predicted for 2022.

  1. May 16, 2022: total lunar eclipse (best seen in eastern North America and South America).
  2. November 7/8. 2022: total lunar eclipse (best seen in western North America and the Pacific).


What do the blood moons have to do with certain bible prophecies? They are mentioned in the book of Joel (OT) and in the book of Acts and Revelation (NT).

Joel 2:31 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. “

Acts 2:20 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:”

Revelation 6:12 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;”

Even though when Jesus was asked about signs, he said that won’t be any signs except the story of Jonah. Obviously the prophet Joel and apostle John had more insights to share.

As you have probably noticed we believe in the pre-tribulation rapture since the bible teaches that believers are not appointed to the wrath of God which is to befall the world during the tribulation.

The blood moon is to happen before the great and terrible day of the Lord. We know that the ‘Day of the Lord’ includes the tribulation and the thousand year millennium, because the bible teaches a day equals 1000 years. Since it is described as a great and terrible day it has to include the tribulation.

God is calling His people home to Israel. I had three sources who shared that the Jews are on their way to Israel from the Ukraine, Russia, Australia and elsewhere.

Prophet Joel to the Israel

Joel 2:21-32 “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”

Joel 3:1-21 “For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.

Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.

Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.

Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim. Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.”

The Apostle Paul to the Gentiles

The Apostle Paul to the Gentiles in his first letter to Thessalomians 1:9 “For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.”

1 Th 2:12-15 “That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:” 3:3 “That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.”

1 Th 3:8,11-13 “For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord. Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you. And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints. “

1 Th 4:1-18 “Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit. But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another. And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more; And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

1 Thessalonians 5:2-6 “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.”

No better time to get ready to meet the Lord in the air than now.

Quotes from KJV Bible. Bold letters added by editor: Rita Williams


Hello everyone. I am Giannis Apostolos from the Kingdom of Heaven’s Adoption Agency. I would like to correct a misunderstanding about the adoption process. The truth is that all of us who believe in Jesus are children of God. The new birth is a real event, whose creator and fulfiler is God Himself: “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13) Even for such a supernatural process, a seed was required and is still needed. Unlike among creatures, the seed that comes from God has no hereditary factors, or genes. It is, however, powerful to bring forth a new kind of life, even eternal ones: “Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God;” (1 Peter 1:22-23) Such a divine seed is received by faith through hearing. It is not received by religious act, such as baptism, or by tradition.

Then we go to the interpretation that has caused misunderstandings in some circles: “For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers,” (Heb. 2:11) The conclusion drawn from this verse is as follows. The sanctifier and the sanctified are all originally from one, so that humans also have a divine gene pool within themselves. I repeat what I said earlier. Only creatures have DNA, not the Creator, for He is Spirit. Humans are not descended from some, mystical, heavenly god incubator. The natural process of birth takes place in the order ordained at the beginning of creation. Let each creature reproduce according to his kind. God has no need to multiply himself. Also Jesus, the son of a carpenter in Nazareth, was born from a woman’s womb. We have come into this world out of nothingness. The carpenter’s son existed eternally before Mary’s womb. He is the only one of his kind and was born into this world for a unique purpose: “Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” (Heb. 2:14-18)

Heavenly Father has had a plan to adopt children for Himself since before there was heaven and earth. Prophets like Isaiah have prophesied of this divine plan, as did Paul, a true Apostle. He continues to set apart for himself those people who feel they are orphans. They have no place in this present world. They are strangers and aliens. He has promised to take good care of the adopted children who belong to him: “What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, ‘I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Cor. 6:16-18) Even in natural adoption, children don’t have the DNA of their new parents. In such families, children learn the customs and behavior of their new family. It’ s the same in God’s family: “Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:13-16)

Dear members of the Holy Family. Be content to be adopted children. The Heavenly Father will always be as far above His creatures as heaven is above the earth. I guarantee you that in his family, even the status of an adopted child is downright heavenly, beyond comprehension many times over. He already has a Son, the only one with divine DNA, if you can put it that way. We will become His likeness at His appearing. Invite everyone to join this heavenly family while there is still time left for adoption.

WIth adoption greetings

The King Project

Hello all you dear citizens of The Kingdom of Heaven, where ever you may be. I’m Michael Angel, the Chief Information Officer of Kingdom of Heaven’s Ministry of Training and Education. At the request of the king, I’m sending you now this news release to encourage and strengthen you all, even the weakest ones. You understand how society’s spiritual climate is becoming colder around citizens towards our cause. Public officers and politicians want to dictate what we’re allowed to say, and what not. They also want to determine the limits of appropriation, what is love, what isn’t, etc. We’re flexible in various things but, in this, we can’t give in. We obey and carry out the will and order of the king of kings to proclaim the good message: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mat. 28:18-20) He’s the ruler of the eternal kingdom, not the rulers and public officers of the present world, who come and go all the time. He remains forever, and we with him.
Already before the foundation of the world, the collective trio of rulers, being in perfect unity, had made the decision to gather dispersed people. For people had no chance at all to enter the kingdom of the great king by their own efforts because of their sinfulness. A payment was needed, which would guarantee the release of sins, and that was paid on a place named Calvary. Accepting, believing and carrying it out in one’s life is the sign of the new birth: “Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” (John 3:5) In these things, people don’t have their own merits but everything comes from above. A person, who believes and fulfills the criteria, mensioned above, gets involved in divine care. In the Ministry, we’re calling this process ‘The King Project’. You can be assured, that the king always brings all his projects to completion. You can have complete peace of mind and rest in his grace, on his promises: “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.” (John 6:37-39) 
Citizens must be realists in regard to their walk. There surely will be troubles and predicaments on the way. Another promise made by the king must be remembered in such situations. He is committed to safeguarding the spiritual well-being of his citizens according to his own resources. We understand that they are considerable and he always does a perfect job: “but he holds his priest hood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.” (Heb. 7:24-26) Unlike in human life, for the great king nothing is transient or fleeting because he remains forever. Trust in the promises of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Heaven, its rights and duties, and their implementation is what we call building on the rock. This kind of action is particularly pleasing to the king. It takes a little effort, of course, but it’s worth it. But one doesn’t have to make it in own strength though. Citizens have a resource what native English speakers call ‘The Spirit Factor’ at their disposal: “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:12-13)
The Spirit Factor has other features and functions, too. All the features and functions are vital for raising a citizen into the value system of The Kingdom of Heaven. The king works, within the framework of his project, with his full strength and authority for the benefit of its citizens. Citizens can put their full trust in the project launched by the king and grow, amidst hardship and even persecution, towards his likeness and his inheritance: “So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.” (Rom. 8:12-17) I wish citizens moments of graceful growth. If someone falls into sin, he can, confessing his sin, rise again and joyfully continue his journey. I hope to see you all one day in the Kingdom of Heaven, in a new state of being.
With project greetings
