Orthodox Rabbi declares that the Blood Moons mean Jewish Messianic advancement
Rabbi: Blood moons mean ‘messianic advancement’
Every time they happen on biblical feast, redemption draws near, he says
The “blood moon phenomenon” has been the talk of the Christian world in 2014 and 2015, as four lunar eclipse tetrads all occurring on biblical holy days occur within 18 months, the last of which happens Sept. 28 on the Feast of Tabernacles.
But now a scholarly Orthodox rabbi from Brooklyn affirms this series of blood moons is serious spiritual business, because each one brings the world closer to the advent of the messiah.
“Each one of these is a messianic advancement,” Rabbi Mendel Kessin told Breaking Israel News. “There are incredible events that predate the messiah.”
Kessin says that normal lunar eclipses, that give the appearance of the moon turning blood red, signal bad news for Israel and the Jewish people. However, he says, those that occur on biblical holy days – such as Passover and Sukkot or Tabernacles – represent good news for them.
Kessin also points out that the next blood moons will occur just two weeks after the end of the Shemitah year – or Sabbath year when debts are released and the land rests, according to the Bible. Kessin says rabbinic teachings suggest the messiah will come in the year following the Shemitah year.
If you think Kessin sounds like some Hebraic roots Christian teachers, like Pastor Mark Biltz, who discovered the blood moon phenomenon in 2008 and authored the bestselling book, “Blood Moons,” and wrote a documentary movie of the same name, and messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” you’re not alone.
The Sabbath-observing Biltz highlighted Kessin’s teachings from his Tacoma, Washington, pulpit Saturday. Biltz has linked historical blood moons tetrads with historical events such as the expulsion of the Jews from Spain beginning in 1492, the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948 and Israel’s capture of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War in 1967.
