Genesis 1 tells us...
14 And God went on to say: Let luminaries
come to be in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and
the night; and they must serve as signs and for seasons and for
days and years.
15 And they must serve as luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth. And it came to be so.
16 And God proceeded to make the 2 great luminaries, the greater luminary for dominating the day and the lesser luminary for dominating the night, and also the stars.
17 Thus God put them in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth,
18 and to dominate by day and by night and to make a division between the light and the darkness. Then God saw that [it was] good.
19 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a 4th day (Genesis 1).
So the luminaries perform the following functions...
1. Divide the day from the night
2. Serve as signs
3. Define seasons and days and years
4. Shine upon the earth
So the 2 great luminaries in particular serve as signs. Well they come together in a spectacular sign during a solar eclipse. This occurs when the moon comes between the earth and the sun. So total solar eclipses are certainly signs. They point to spiritual seasons and ages and time periods and events.
But why are there 3 total solar eclipses in a row each two being separated by one BLC year (to within one day)? What does this signify and how often does it occur? Well, the bible for eclipses, is the website of Fred Espinak of NASA...
He has a 5 millennium catalogue of solar eclipses at...
From this it can be seen that a run of 3 total solar eclipses each separated by one BLC year (to within one day) occurs around every 40 years on average. But the astonishing thing to us is how they occur in the first and the second presences of the Christ.
Gabriel entered John in 29Nisan and Michael entered Jesus/Immanuel on 29Tishri10. Peter was sanctified at the start of the Jewish call into the 1NC on 29Heshvan29. So there was an 3TSE (tri annual total solar eclipse chain) immediately before Michael and Gabriel came down into John and Jesus and another 3TSE immediately afterwards. The same thing happened again before and after the period from 115Iyyar30 to 116Elul28. This we suspect is when the 1NC saints descended to gather people for the rapture at the end of the first presence.
So we have another double 3TSE. Well, Gordon, the mediator of the 2NC and the 4EC was born in 1957 on September13. This lies between both 3TSEs.
The double 3TSE points to a date 33 years after 2010?
During a total eclipse the sun is completely covered by the moon. Then the moon has to move one moon (or sun) further and the sun is then free. So they prophesy a release for Jesus or his church one month or one year after the eclipse. The sun, the light of the world, is Jesus or his church....
14 You are the light of the world. A city cannot be hid when
situated upon a mountain (Matthew 5)
12 Therefore Jesus spoke again to them, saying: I am the light of the world. He that follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life. (John 8).
The moon, a dead reflector of the light of the sun, is Satan or his organisation. for he is a counterfeit mimic God.
We used to think that Joel 2 referred to total solar and total lunar eclipses. Joel 2:18 shows that the stars will not give their brightness either. So the cause of the darkness of the sun is not an eclipse. It is atmospheric particles. These must be either volcanic ash or a nuclear winter.
The lava flood starts on 2023Chislev14. The sad/great/epiphanaic day of Jehovah, which begins on 2022Sivan16, is a day of gloominess, darkness, thick cloud etc. It hosts a huge multiple volcanic eruption which puts a worldwide ash cloud into the atmosphere. For more see U272
This moon turning into blood cannot just be a regular lunar eclipse because those happen all the time. It is a total lunar eclipse on a blood sacrifice annual festival day. The only Christian blood festival is Nisan14, the Lords evening meal, the Passover, the date of Jesus' sacrifice. Jesus was sacrificed by Caiaphas, the High Priest under law, during the Passover night, when he was condemned to death by the San Hedrin. He was executed by the Romans during the Passover day. But Romans could not sacrifice anyone they were not priests, they were butchers.
Definition: 4 total lunar eclipses in a row (rather than being partial or
annular eclipses) is a tetrad.
Definition: A blood moon, or the moon turning to blood, is a lunar eclipse on a blood sacrifice festival. For Christianity that is the Passover.
2014April15 at 07:47 (2014Nisan13).
2015April4 at 12:01 (2015Nisan14)
The bible defines the double astronomical sign as follows...
19 And I will give portents in heaven above and signs on earth below, blood and fire and smoke
20 the sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great [fearful of Joel] and epiphanaic day of Jehovah arrives (Acts 2 NWT)
30 And I will give miracles/signs/portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
31 The sun itself will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great [epiphanaic of Acts] and fearful day of Jehovah
32 And it must occur that everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will get away safe; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will prove to be deliverance, just as Jehovah has said, and in the remnant, whom Jehovah is calling. (Joel 2 NWT/YLT)
The sign is a total solar eclipse (the sun becoming totally dark) followed by a blood moon, which no other type of solar or lunar eclipse between the two. This double sign occurred in 1912/1913, 1930/1931, 1948/1949, 1977/1978 and 2015 but does not again until after 2043 - see U271b. So the great and/or fearful and/or illustrious and/or epiphanaic day of the Lord Jehovah must begin after 2015Nisan14 But the portents/signs/miracles, the blood, the fire, the smoke, the sun going dark and the moon turning to blood ALL precede both the great day and the fear inspiring day of Jehovah. So neither day can start before the 2nd fire sign.
12 And I saw when he opened the 6th seal, and a great earthquake occurred; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the entire moon became as blood, (Revelation 6 NWT)
Acts2 and Joel2 define the celestial sign as the sun being tuned into darkness and the moon into blood. This is a double sign comprising a total solar eclipse and a blood moon. But there are many total solar eclipses in a century and normally around 10 blood moons. So in order to grasp the uniqueness and power of this double event we require these two to be visible at the same location. So the sign we are looking for is a blood moon preceded by or followed by a total solar eclipse visible at the same location, with no other total solar eclipse between the two.
This combination only occurs once in the period from 1979 to 2043.

Data from http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov. The great American eclipse which traversed the States from Oregon to South Carolina.
The total lunar eclipse on 2014October8 at 10:55 = 2014Tishri11. This just missed atonement day on 2014Tishri10 - so was not quite a blood moon either.
We have one blood moon in the period from 2011 to 2020, that occurred on 2015Nisan14. In fact the previous blood moon was1978Nisan14 and the next one is 2043Nisan14 - For more on this please see U271b. So 2015Nisan14 is the big date and the blood moon fulfilling Acts2 and Joel2 since it actually occurs during the last days (from 2008Nisan14 to 2020Tishri14 - the largest Time of the End of Daniel12).
But the sign also requires the sun to be turned into darkness, i.e. a total solar eclipse, and it must be in the same place that the blood moon was visible from (ideally by LWs). There were no LWs who could have seen the 2015Adar24 eclipse and precious few JWs (in Indonesia only). The more visible eclipse was the great American Eclipse on 2017Ab25 (August21).
The Acceptable/goodwill year of Isaiah61 begins on 2019Ab10.
The prophetic form 'Great and Epiphanaic Day' means two days in the greater meaning. Jesus assures us that those from the synagogue of Satan come because he makes them come. But Laodicea is not a synagogue of Satan. It is a true church once again. And Jews listen to the voice of Jesus (true Jews). So he will not have to make them come, he will just have to ask them to come and they will come.
The Day of Jehovah is the day of fire sign responding salvation by Jehovah!
An eclipse which traverses the entire US from coast to coast which is only visible to people in the United States is a once in a 100 year event. It is the warning that the 3rd fire sign will occur imminently on New York.
We had thought that the meltdown at Fukushima was the 2nd fire sign of 1Kings18. We no longer think it was because it did not occur on a divine Pentecost festival date..

The Passover is a half day (a night) festival. So we need a total lunar eclipse blood moon during the Passover night, to make a blood moon.

A total eclipse on the late Passover may not constitute a blood moon, because Jesus died on the regular Passover not the late one. 2015Nisan14 is the only regular Passover blood moon between 1978Nisan14 and 2043Nisan14. And the eclipse event immediately before 2043Nisan14 is an annular solar eclipse not a total solar eclipse.

25 Also, there will be signs in sun and
moon and stars, and on the earth anguish of nations, not knowing the way out
because of the roaring of the sea and [its] agitation,
26 while men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 But as these things start to occur, raise yourselves erect and lift your heads up, because your deliverance is getting near (Luke 21).
An eclipse is a visible sign in the Sun and Moon. A meteor shower is a visible sign in the stars.
The Perseid meteor shower lasts around 40 days and plainly represents 40 days of stars falling from heaven, or the 40 day descent of the 1NC saints into the wilderness, the 40 day downpour of the greater flood of Noah.
Here are some pictures from the international meteor organisation at www.imo.net.

So the observed length of this meteor shower whereby the stars look to be falling from the heavens was from July15 to August24, 40 days. The scripturally calculated 40 day flooding out of the descended 1NC angels on the other hand is now from 2016Heshvan17-2016Chislev26/Shebat6. So we will have to look at some other meteor showers.
The first total lunar eclipse in the Kingdom of God falls on the winter solstice of 2010December21 early in the day (2010Tebbeth10). The previous one being on 2008February21, in the last system. So the Great Tribulation of Matthew24 could never have begun before 2010December21 because Jesus said...
just as the lightning comes out of eastern parts and shines over to western
parts, so the presence of the Son of man will be.
28 Wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days [of the second presence of the son of man] the sun will be darkened [total solar eclipse or in fact any solar eclipse will darken it], and the moon will not give its light [total lunar eclipse], and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken (Matthew 24)
in those days, after that tribulation [the
great tribulation which had to be cut short],
the sun will be darkened [partial
and the moon will not give its light [total
25 and the stars will be falling out of heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken (Mark 13)
And Peter, quoting Joel said...
sun will be turned into darkness [total
the moon into blood [total
before the great and epiphanaic day of the Lord/Jehovah arrives.
21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord/Jehovah will be saved.' (Acts 2)
31 The sun itself will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and fear-inspiring day of Jehovah (Joel 2)
