TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE COMING.
Does it portent DOOM?

Please look to chapter 42, as it is talking about the TETRAD of 4 blood moons and 2 Solar Eclipses, all
relating to Jewish HIGH HOLIDAYS throughout 2014-2015 & their possible significance.
Very soon in ONLY 9 DAYS there will be a total eclipse of the SUN on the 20th March 2015.
Visibility is expected..but WHERE?
Well, It turns out that the MAX SOLAR ECLIPSE will be seen between the area to the NNW of SCOTLAND through to ICELAND
Here is a good projected SOLAR ECLIPSE MAP, so see for yourselves at:-
The following is a shortened version of the above website article:-
THE TSE 2015 PATH OF TOTALITY
A truly remarkable, but geographically remote, total solar eclipse (TSE) will occur on 20 March 2015 with the Sun on the celestial equator at the vernal equinox, as the Moon's umbral shadow traverses a narrow path for 1 hour and 5 minutes over the North
Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, spectacularly ending with a blackened sunrise at the geographic North Pole. The path of totality, the region on the Earth's surface where the Sun will be totally obscured by the Moon, begins at sunrise over the cold waters
of the north Atlantic Ocean 650 km east of Newfoundland where the eclipse centreline then at 09:13 UT is 600 km is south of the southern tip of Greenland. The path then sweeps north eastward passing, but missing, the east coast of Iceland in route, literally,
to the "top" of the world at the North geographic pole.
Total Solar Eclipse On March 20th Falls In The Middle Of The Four Blood Red Moons
Source:-(End Of The American Dream)
The total solar eclipse on March 20th falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical
calendar. According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment. And this has certainly been true in the past. For example, there was a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 in 70 AD. Later that year, the Romans attacked
Jerusalem and completely destroyed the Temple. What makes all of this even more interesting is the fact that the solar eclipse on March 20th falls right in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, and it also happens to fall during the Shemitah year. If you are
not a believer, you may be tempted to dismiss all of this as some sort of extremely bizarre coincidence. If you are a believer, you also might be skeptical. But by the end of this article, at least you will understand what so many people are talking about
In the Scriptures, we are told that God created the sun and the moon, and that he intended for them to act as “signs”. The following comes from Genesis chapter one…
14 And God said, 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 for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
So specifically how can the sun and moon be “signs”
as God originally intended?
Well, one minister has discovered that eclipses on important Biblical dates have been associated with key world events throughout history. His name is Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, and he has
pointed out that total eclipses do not take place on any other planet in our solar system…
Total eclipses don’t take place on any other known planet, point out intelligent-design
scientists. They only take place on Earth, the finely tuned planet where life exists that can actually view them. Biltz points out that the Bible says in Genesis that the sun, moon and stars were created specifically
as signs for mankind, so His creation would know about the feasts (or appointed times) to have relationship with their Creator.
A number of years ago, Pastor Biltz discovered that a series of four blood moon eclipses would occur on important
Biblical dates during 2014 and 2015. This kind of “blood moon tetrad” is very rare. It fact, it has only happened seven times before since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This current blood moon tetrad is the eighth occurrence.
to Jewish tradition, blood red moons are an omen of war for Israel. The following comes from my previous article on the blood red moons…
Is Israel going to be involved in a war during the blood red moons of 2014 and 2015? According to ancient Jewish tradition, a lunar eclipse is a harbinger of bad things for Israel.
If that eclipse is blood red, that is a sign that war is coming. And blood red moons that happen during Biblical festivals seem to be particularly significant. There
was a “tetrad” of blood red moons that fell during Passover 1967, the Feast of Tabernacles 1967, Passover 1968 and the Feast of Tabernacles 1968. And of course the 1967 war during which Israel took full control of Jerusalem took place during that
time period. There was also a “tetrad” of blood red moons that fell during Passover 1949, the Feast of Tabernacles 1949, Passover 1950 and the Feast of Tabernacles 1950. If you know your history, you already are aware that the Israeli War of Independence
ended on July 20th, 1949. So does the blood red moon tetrad of 2014 and 2015 signal that another season of war is now upon us?
We already witnessed a war between Israel and Hamas in 2014,
but personally I am convinced that more war could soon come to the Middle East.
But what I want to talk about now is the total solar
eclipse that is coming up on March 20th. The chart below comes from propheciesoftheendtimes.com, and it shows that it falls right in the middle of this series of blood red moons…
As I mentioned above, when a solar eclipse falls on Nisan 1 it is traditionally considered to be a sign that judgment is coming to the world…
“Our Rabbis taught, when the sun is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for the whole world. This may be illustrated by a parable. To what can this be compared? To a human being who
made a banquet for his servants and put up for them a lamp. When he became wroth with them he said to his servant, ‘Take away the lamp from them, and let them sit in
the dark’. It was taught: R. Meir said, whenever the luminaries [moon]
are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished. Our Rabbis taught, When
the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by the moon and idolaters by the sun…”
Of course Jewish tradition is not Scripture,
but it is very interesting to note.
And what we do know is that we have seen this kind of pattern before.
On Nisan 1 in 70 AD, there was a total solar eclipse. But that was not
the only eclipse during that time period. In fact, there were a whole series of eclipses that took place on key Biblical dates before and after the destruction of
the Temple in Jerusalem.
The following information comes from a book authored by Pastor Mark Biltz entitled “Blood Moons“…
October 18, 69 AD (Sukkot): partial solar eclipse
March 30, 70 AD (Nisan
1): total solar eclipse
April 14, 70 AD (Passover): penumbral lunar eclipse
Temple destroyed 9th of Av, 70 AD
September 21, 70 AD (Rosh Hashanah): annual solar eclipse
October 8, 70 AD (Sukkot): penumbral lunar eclipse
March 4, 71 AD (Purim): partial lunar eclipse
March 20, 71 AD (Nisan 1): hybrid solar eclipse
September 12, 71 AD (Rosh Hashanah): hybrid solar eclipse
Now we find ourselves in the middle of a similar series of eclipses.
it be possible that this total eclipse on March 20th is a sign of judgment?
Or is all of this just a giant coincidence?
Either way, at least now you understand what so many people are talking
What concerns me, Steve, author of “OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT” is the exact LOCATION and SHAPE of the MAXIMIM SOLAR ECLIPSE on 20/03/15!
as many foresee, that TOTAL ECLIPSES OF THE SUN portent JUDGMENT, then if the actual location of the SIGN itself is important, then it leaves me concerned, as I live in the north of the UK which is very close to the next total Solar Eclipse.
An important question to get an answer to:- Is the location of a SIGN in the Heavens relevant or not?
If we suppose that the SIGNS happen where judgments are to begin, then the NORTH ATLANTIC is the likely closest target and in particular both ICELAND and the UK,
and perphaps by inferance the entire North Atlantic?
Two things possibly come to mind in this area
of the world:-
FACT: There are many active volcanoes in Iceland! One of the largest ones called LAKI, caused an eruption in 1783, which resulted in one third
of the population of Iceland being killed, and 6,000,000 people died as a direct or indirect result in Europe that year due, to sulphur-dioxide in the smoky atmosphere over Europe. People caught
working out in the fields in parts of Europe in 1783 died a horrible suffocating death as their lungs became coated in sulphuric acid and they died in agony! Also there was no summer that year due to the dense smoke hanging over the UK & Europe, which
culminated in a deadly FROZEN winter which killed millions by resultant STARVATION.(See Volcanoes TOPIC on this website (www.outofthebottomlesspit.co.uk) with more information about Icelandic volcanoes)
The total eclipse starting just off Greenland and ending at the North Pole moving in a left angle 90 degree arc and over the sea could mean a possible judgment from
the sea? A TIDAL WAVE? Or could it possibly be as many have surmised an approaching ICE-AGE descending from the NORTH? This would end up affecting the entire Northern Hemisphere & indeed eventually the Southern Hemisphere
Some other points of interest in observing the above map of the soon coming SOLAR ECLIPSE
THE total ECLIPSE of the SUN
starts over the sea in the NW Atlantic and curves in a left hand 90 degree angle.
It ends abruptly exactly at the NORTH POLE
I am no expert on astrology or
an astral signs in the sky, as in regards to the TOTAL ECLIPSE, but as for it being a very bad OMEN, as others have also stated, I think I would have to agree. That assessment is just from seeing the LOCATION of the total eclipse.
For those who are unaware, if you read my book in chapters 3, 4 & 10, you will see that I put forth the argument that the earth may not actually be solid but in fact hollow. I also show in my book how where you
can see in the above map the SOLAR ECLIPSE ended at the so-called NORTH POLE is what is really called by the initiated the North Polar Entrance as described by the famous and
decorated US Admiral Byrd in 1927 and in his FLIGHT LOG IN 1956
photograph of the Northern Polar Entrance
CONCLUSIONS to draw about this ECLIPSE as a possible SIGN in the HEAVENS as mentioned and prophesied in the bible in MATTHEW 24 and JOEL 2.
What could this total eclipse of the
sun appearing in the middle of 4 blood moons throughout 2014-2015 signify from it’s location?
I would venture a guess that the SOLAR ECLIPSE starting over the sea means according to the bible
Revelations 17.15 “ …the waters which thou saw are peoples, and multitudes & nations and tongues”
For many the above-mentioned North Polar Entrance is the entrance to HELL itself.
The sharp LEFT TURN of the SOLAR ECLIPSE to the NORTH POLAR ENTRANCE looks and sounds
very OMINOUS, and could have the possible meaning that MANKIND SHALL VERY SOON QUICKLY DESCENT INTO BOTH
TOTAL SPIRITUAL DARKNESS AND INTO HELL ITSELF.Some have suggested that the sudden turn to the LEFT could signify that the whole world will turn to SOCIALISM and then COMMUNISM as OBAMA, the UN, AND the WORLD ELITE reach their goal of the NEW WORLD ORDER
and bring on their world leader the ANTI-CHRIST. Just a thought!
(Ps 9.17 THE WICKED SHALL
BE TURNED INTO HELL AND ALL OF THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD!)
Now with many stating that the
MARK of the BEAST (enforced electronic implants on all humans on the planet: see chapter 40 in my new book “Out of the Bottomless Pit”) could be just around the corner in 2017), I leave it up to you to decide what you think this SOLAR ECLIPSE in the midst of 4 BLOOD MOONS COULD SIGNIFY if anything?
Of course my above comments in 2)
& 3) are merely mostly speculations, but as the TIME of the End draws ever closer to the very End & The 2nd
Coming of JESUS CHRIST, we will start to see greater SIGNS on the earth, and resultant judgments from God, caused by the extreme wickedness of mankind and in particular the ELITE.
(I intend to
investigate this intriguing subject further, to see whether in history, visible SIGNS resulted in JUDGMENT locally or not; &
to track down the path of previous ECLIPSES throughout history and any possible JUDGMENTS that could have followed. I will post what I find on my site shortly)
Here is an example of one
In 66 AD, HALLEY’S comet was seen hanging over JERUSALEM,
described by the Jewish historian Josephus of the time as “A fiery Sword hanging” over JERUSALEM.
JUDGMENT:- 4 YEARS LATER IN 70 AD the temple in Jerusalem was raised to the ground in
a direct fulfillment of a prophecy Jesus himself had given in 30 AD.
Hundreds of thousands of people were crucified and slaughtered in Israel, and the rest were forcible driven out of ISRAEL by the Romans. The Jews never recovered their nation of ISRAEL
again until 1948, which incidentally was also prophesied as going to happen thousands of years before it did by their own prophets, such as Isaiah.
TIME WILL TELL WHETHER THE TETRAD OF 4 BLOOD
MOONS & TWO ECLIPSES OF THE SUN ARE MOST DEFINITELY LINKED TO THE BIBLICAL PREDICTIONS GIVEN BY JESUS HIMSELF IN MATTHEW 24 & JOEL 2.

I was not actually consciously thinking about all of this myself until curiosity about the eclipse being seen most clearly from the UK got my attention when I saw it in the news. It was almost
an after-thought that I got the urge to look up the Blood Moons Tetrad again at the same time, which is when the shock hit me!. This is definitely NOT "a little thing" that is taking place,
no sirree! Anyway...
A few things REALLY stood out to me in particular...
First, the reminder that this eclipse - A "new moon" = a dark/black moon,
and on the Spring Equniox, as well as also the first day of the Jewish new Year, is supposed to be an eclipse that is one of the darkest (deepest)
Europe has ever seen! It occurs in the middle of the current Blood Moons Tetrad, AND that the third Blood Moon (a "full moon", exactly two weeks later!) falls on Good Friday, Easter/Passover, the day of Jesus' death!
Things like this DON'T "just happen" do they?
location of where it takes place, and subsequently who will/should "notice" it! Even if there is cloud cover and the
eclipse cannot be observed directly, the sky will be substantially darkened apparently, and especially noticeable in the UK. (If there IS cloud cover it will be even DARKER, whew!) More on my belief "why the UK?" In a moment but before that...
Thirdly, the arc of the progression of "total" eclipse completely astounded me, because... I have flown between the UK and Iceland many times, and I have always noticed a CHANGE in the spirit EXACTLY at the point where the total eclipse occurs,
around the Faroe Islands! To the SOUTH the spirit is very DARK, but to the NORTH it is very LIGHT!
I don't know what The Lord knows, and probably no country is completely "innocent", much like "all have sinned and come short of the glory
of God" on individual personal levels, however where Iceland is concerned, from my experience with all the places I have been on this planet, I would have to say that Iceland certainly seems more "good" than "bad", and more "right" than "wrong", in all kinds
of ways and for all kinds of reasons.
The rest of Europe, and the UK especially, is a entirely different matter however, and PARTICULARLY "The City of London", which I will explain following...
The animated graphic I saw on the Internet showing the path of the "total" eclipse (an elliptical shaped
"black spot") appears to point DIRECTLY towards LONDON! Historically, in times past, any "warning" of "judgments" heralded by events such as these eclipses were directed at Israel, as your article points out. In those times past London, as it is TODAY, did
not exist, HOWEVER...
TODAY, and in more recent "modern" history, the "CITY of London" is not only a hotbed of real iniquity, actually built and based on Luciferianism and actual occultist
Satan worship (and all that that entails and means), but it is the seat of power for "Zionism" (NOT to be confused with "the Jews" and the current State of "Israel")! "Zionism" is basically another word for the "New
World Order", and the only thing the AC is waiting for, steering the world towards, is his temple in Jerusalem, so he can move himself and his whole operation there!
Right now however, "The City of London" runs everything (and
"who" runs "The City"?), including the U.S., the EU, and all of "The City's" "branches" globally, including the so-called "royal households", the other "city nation states" and "tax havens" scattered around, the banks, the corporations, etc, etc ad infinitum
(ALL of these are PRIVATELY OWNED, including and especially the "Central/Federal" banks, as well as all the land they sit on, and contrary to public knowledge!) This is no exaggeration and well researched and documented!
what I understand from many others, 2015 is considered to be the harbinger of GLOBAL CHANGES that are expected to take place throughout 2016 - 2017, at the latest! If so, then perhaps THIS is why this heavenly warning, and/or warning of judgment upon "Zion"
and it's seat of power, has been chosen to take place where it has, pointing at "who's to blame" and the reasons for it!? Certainly "food for thought", and my personal belief anyway! 😊
"We will see" I guess!
as a closing "side-note" about Iceland and its volcanos...
Firstly, Iceland sits astride two tectonic plates that are PULLING AWAY FROM EACH OTHER, the "North American" plate, and the "European" plate! (Get that!?) As a result, earthquakes
and volcanic activity are a result of natures forces "leaking", rather than the bumping and grinding we find in other parts of the world resulting in more violent kinds of earthquakes and eruptions.
They have had a "leaking" type
of eruption going on for months and months now, but if you remember the effect that the eruption of a few years back had on the rest of Europe? It would not surprise me if, especially as gravitational forces will be at their peak during this eclipse due to
the "super moon" effect, another eruption could occur and send another "blight" across Europe (unless they take heed and take note and repent of their current actions and direction)! I certainly would understand if the UK were to be affected at least.
COMMENT from John Benjamin in the USA 11.3.15
I totally agree
Steve, You are right on I think. Concerning the blood moons and coming troubles, have you watched Jonathan Cahn's latest warnings (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGF8213KlL8)? He is saying that he feels it's very possible that the greatest economic crash in America's history will come
at the last blood moon time and end of the present Shimmitah. SEPTEMBER -late... I think he's really on to something. I also think war with Israel is imminent.
The last 3 tetrads have all had Israel going to war and gaining ground. I think this time something so drastic and unimaginable is going to occur that it will stun the Muslims into submission, like the nuking of Damascus (Isaiah 17.1?). This will allow for the rebuilding of the Temple, the covenant -probably written by a Jewish man-- and the antichrist
to step forward and begin to have intelligence with those who also hate the covenant like he does. I think we're close! Some think something's going to happen around this spring blood moon and solar eclipse.
Rabbi Cahn has said that a solar eclipse has traditionally meant judgment on the Gentile nations. It would not surprise me to see another 9/11 only HUGE! -Like a nuke going off in New
York (God forbid) or any type of thing. According to John Paul Jackson who just passed away, prophesied that a great California quake is coming shortly, but before it hits he said that California would experience the worst storm in its history.
HE WAS RIGHT! The Pineapple Express came roaring through with 140 mph. winds hitting the high Sierras! WOW! maybe that will be the next thing that hits. Anyway, it's all leading up to the big show!
NOW SOME MORE EXACT details:-
Upcoming ‘Supermoon’ eclipse will dazzle Britain, but hit Europe’s power grids hard
Published time: March 08, 2015 14:03Burditt)
This spring should reward plenty of star-gazers,
especially in Britain, which will experience its deepest solar eclipse in 15 years, as well as a Supermoon, all at the same time – an event that will sink the island into twilight for two whole hours.
The Supermoon eclipse, as the phenomenon is
known, is an astronomical alignment where the Moon is sent on a trajectory between the Sun and the Earth, depriving us of light. The event will occur on March 20 at around 8:40GMT.
Scotland will have it best though, with a whopping 98 percent of the
sky darkened, compared to about 85 percent for the south of England. For best results the Scottish need to look up starting 9:36 am.
Other areas in Britain will only get around 30 percent.
Similar events took place in 2006, 2008 and 2011, but
neither of them can touch the upcoming Supermoon eclipse, except an event that occurred in 1999.
We’ll have to wait three years for the next one in 2018. However, only 2026 will present us with a deep solar eclipse once again. As for the magnitude,
it won’t be until 2090 that we get to see anything like the 1999 and upcoming March 20 events.
Whenever particularly striking displays take place, it is because the Moon is close to the Earth. According to Dr Edward Bloomer of the Royal Observatory
at Greenwich, the March eclipse will see the Moon closer to us than it has been in more than 18 years.
“The Earth is orbiting around the Sun and sometimes is slightly closer and sometimes further away, and the Earth is also wobbling around on
its axis,” the Telegraph cites him as saying.
“Likewise the orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical and slightly tilted so it’s rare for the Sun, Earth and Moon to actually line up,” he also said. And when the Moon’s
orbit is as close as possible to the Earth’s, we have a total eclipse, Bloomer explains.
That’s when the Supermoon appears, and that is what will take place in Britain in a few days, as our satellite appears to us as an enormous black, glowing
orb, shortly before March 20.
The only thing the Brits have to worry about is weather. It can potentially ruin their viewing experience, with the possibility of clouds and rain.
But if skies are clear, another treat for everyone will be the moon
itself. With such proximity and lighting conditions, a pair of binoculars will give the viewer surface details that could never be seen with the naked eye.
However, it’s not just the fun factor of such events that is attracting attention. The
Brits are afraid it might cause power grid failures as well. The National Grid says around 50 percent of power will be lost throughout the morning hours later in March.
But Britain will remain relatively unscathed, compared to its European neighbors,
where up to 10 percent of energy is generated sustainably, meaning they depend more on the sun. According to the UK’s energy body, only 1.5 percent of power there is generated by solar panels. And since people will be going out in droves to watch the
spectacle, energy consumption should drop almost at the same time the shortages will strike, it says.
The European Network Transmission System Operators for Electricity says, according to the Independent, “with the increase of installed photovoltaic
energy generation, the risk of an incident could be serious without appropriate countermeasures.”
"Within 30 minutes the solar power production would decrease from 17.5 gigawatts to 6.2GW and then increase again up to 24.6GW. This means that within
30 minutes the system will have to adapt to a load change of -10GW to +15GW," said Patrick Graichen, executive director of the Berlin-based think-tank on renewable energy Agora Energiewende, as cited by the Financial Times.
While the world is only hearing
about the Supermoon eclipse now, energy companies have been preparing for the event for months in advance, some in Europe setting up contingency measures for extracting energy from other power stations.
Experts predict that precautionary
methods will only increase with time, as more solar energy becomes increasingly commonplace.
(Added 17.3.15) Here is the ORTHODOX Jewish take on the TOTAL ECLIPSE
and the 4 BLOOD MOONS from yet another source:-
Passover Blood Moon Preceded By Exceedingly Rare Solar Eclipse
March 17, 2015
An exceedingly rare solar eclipse
will take place next FRIDAY over a most symbolic location on a day infused with both great natural significance and profound religious meaning. There will be a total eclipse of the sun for two minutes over
the North Pole on Friday, (& 2 HOURS of ECLIPSE in THE FARAO ISLANDS, ICELAND, NORWAY & THE NORTH OF THE UK) on March 20, the day of the Spring Equinox which coincides with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the
Biblical calendar year, a solar occurrence that has never happened before in human history. “The concurrence and rarity of this natural event, together with the times in which we live, indicates the finger of God,” Gidon Ariel,
an Israeli Orthodox Jew told Breaking Israel News. Ariel serves as the co-founder and CEO of Root Source, an online platform where Christians can learn “Jewish concepts, ideas and thought, to more deeply understand the roots of their faith,
in an informal and loving manner” according to the group’s website. As stated in the Book of Exodus, “the first month” of Nissan is when God rescued the Nation of Israel from slavery in Egypt. Jewish tradition teaches that just as the
first redemption happened in Nissan, so too the future redemption of the world will also occur in the month of Nissan
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great
and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)

An exceedingly rare solar eclipse will take place next week over a most symbolic location on a day infused with both great natural significance and profound religious meaning.
There will be a total eclipse of the sun for two minutes over the North Pole on Friday, March 20, the day of the Spring Equinox which coincides with the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nissan, the first month in the Biblical
calendar year, a solar occurrence that has never happened before in human history.
“The concurrence and rarity of this natural event, together with the times in which we live, indicates the finger of God,” Gideon
Ariel, an Israeli Orthodox Jew told Breaking Israel News. Ariel serves as the As stated in the Book of Exodus, “the first month” of Nissan is when God rescued the Nation of Israel from slavery in Egypt. Jewish tradition teaches that just
as the first redemption happened in Nissan, so too the future redemption of the world will also occur in the month of Nissan.
Known by Jews as the “Holiday of Redemption,” Passover takes place every year on the
15th day of Nissan, and as Hebrew months are based on a lunar cycle, the night when Jews sit down to their Passover Seder always has a full moon.
This year, much attention is being paid to Passover’s full moon
since it will be the third in a series of four “Blood Moons” taking place over the Jewish festivals.
The last series of blood moons
to occur over the Jewish festivals took place in 1967 when Israel won the Six Day War, expanded the boundaries of the Jewish State and liberated the city of Jerusalem.
Prior to 1967, there was a tetrad in 1949 when the Israeli
War of Independence ended after the founding of the State of Israel the previous year, perhaps the greatest event in modern Jewish history.
A series of four blood moons occurring during Jewish holidays is so rare that the last time prior to 1948 was all the way back in 1493, the year following the expulsion of Jews from Spain, another major milestone in Jewish history.
“Studying world history from a Jewish perspective has caused me to perceive the Blood Moons a bit differently than I did at first,” said O’Dell, an American Christian who has observed and studied lunar and
solar astronomical events for more than 35 years.
took his findings to Ariel and the two developed a free eBook on the blood moons as well as a complementary course where Christians can learn what O’Dell calls the “Jewish aspects” of the blood moons and solar eclipses of 2015.
Judaism teaches that God gave the Torah (Bible) to humanity in the Sinai wilderness, as opposed to inside the Land of Israel, in order to demonstrate that the Divine Word belongs to all of humanity, Jews and non-Jews. According to O’Dell, there is
no place on earth that is as symbolic of wilderness as the North Pole.
“Whereas every piece and parcel of land in the world is owned by someone or some
country, the North Pole is an international site and is not owned by any nation,” O’Dell explained to Breaking Israel News. A total solar eclipse at the North Pole on the first day of spring occurs once every 100,000 years.
For it to occur on the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar year is, however, entirely unprecedented since this is only the year 5775 according to Jewish tradition, meaning that there has never been such a solar occurrence in human history.
