2015 Is The End Of The World, Not 2012

According to Pastor Mark Blitz, Jesus and his lawyer (thank you Eels) are coming back in the year 2015. Mark has been checking out the NASA website and it so happens that there is supposed to be a red moon in 2015. So, to Mark, this is the coming of the end.......so long fair world, I will miss you. Wait a minute, isn't the world supposed to end on December 23, 2012? Appearently those folks didn't check with NASA, cause NASA knows everything. So, all of you who were planning for the world to end in 2012........don't worry, you have another three years to do whatever it is that you do.

TESTING THE FAITH
Blood moon eclipses: 2nd Coming in 2015?
Minister uses NASA forecasting to study signals of Jesus' return

Will Jesus Christ return to Earth in the year 2015?

And can studying NASA's website provide evidence for such a scenario?

A minister who promotes the Old Testament roots of Christianity suggests a rare string of lunar and solar eclipses said to fall on God's annual holy days seven years from now could herald what's come to be known as the "Second Coming" of Jesus.

"God wants us to look at the biblical calendar," says Mark Biltz, pastor of El Shaddai Ministries in Bonney Lake, Wash. "The reason we need to be watching is [because] He will signal His appearance. But we have to know what to be watching as well. So we need to be watching the biblical holidays."

In a video interview on the Prophecy in the News website, Biltz said he's been studying prophecies that focus on the sun and moon, even going back to the book of Genesis where it states the lights in the sky would be "be for signs, and for seasons."

"It means a signal, kind of like 'one if by land, two if by sea.' It's like God wants to signal us," he said. "The Hebrew word implies ... not only is it a signal, but it's a signal for coming or His appearing."


Biltz adds the word "seasons" implies appointed times for God's feasts and festivals.

"When we hear the word feast, we think food. But the Hebrew word has nothing to do with food. It has to do with a divine appointment, as if God has a day timer, and He says, 'OK, I'm gonna mark the day and the time when I'm going to signal My appearance.'"

In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states, "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)

In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted as saying, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light ... And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:29-30)

Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News noted, "When we think of the sun being darkened and the moon not giving her light, we usually think of some astronomical catastrophe – perhaps the sun sputtering and the moon being affected by all this. But maybe it's time to rethink this a little bit and think of it as a natural cycle, the cycle of the eclipses."

Thus, Biltz began focusing on the precise times of both solar and lunar eclipses, sometimes called "blood moons" since the moon often takes on a bloody color. He logged onto NASA's eclipse website which provides precision tracking of the celestial events.

He noted a rare phenomenon of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, known as a tetrad.

He says during this century, tetrads occur at least six times, but what's interesting is that the only string of four consecutive blood moons that coincide with God's holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn's Feast of Tabernacles (also called Succoth) occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today's Gregorian calendar.

"The fact that it doesn't happen again in this century I think is very significant," Biltz explains. "So then I looked at last century, and, believe it or not, the last time that four blood red moons occurred together was in 1967 and 1968 tied to Jerusalem recaptured by Israel."

He then started to notice a pattern of the tetrads.

"What's significant to me is that even before 1967, the next time that you had four blood red moons again was right after Israel became a nation in '48, it happened again in 1949 and 1950 ... on Passover and Succoth. You didn't have any astronomical tetrads in the 1800s, the 1700s, the 1600s. In the 1500s, there were six, but none of those fell on Passover and Succoth."

When checking the schedule for solar eclipses, Biltz found two – one on the first day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 year.

Biltz says, "You have the religious year beginning with the total solar eclipse, two weeks later a total lunar eclipse on Passover, and then the civil year beginning with the solar eclipse followed two weeks later by another total blood red moon on the Feast of Succoth all in 2015."

"If you think that this is a coincidence, I want you to know that it's time!" exclaimed Prophecy in the News host J.R. Church. "There are no more of these for the rest of the century."

The prospect of eclipses pinpointing the time of Jesus' return is getting mixed reaction in Christian circles.

After seeing Biltz's interview, Jim Bramlett, an author and former vice president for the Christian Broadcasting Network, expressed excitement.

"I have just watched the program two times and do not think I have ever been more encouraged or excited about the soon return of the Lord!" Bramlett said.

But Hal Lindsey, a well-known biblical analyst and author of "The Late Great Planet Earth," says while he hasn't heard of Biltz's theory, he called it "pure speculation."

"In my 50-something years of studying prophecy, to me the greatest indication of the time of Christ's return is based around the general things of prophecies coming together in the same time frame."

He mentioned not only Israel's birth as a political state in 1948, but the increase in tensions with Muslims, the rise of Russia, China and the European Union, which he says is even "calling itself the revived Roman Empire."

"I see the whole sweep and panorama spinning together in a precise scenario," he said.

During a second video interview, Biltz was presented with Bible quotes that many think suggest Jesus' return will be a complete surprise, or at least not specifically known.

The 25th chapter of Matthew features a parable where Jesus likens His kingdom to ten virgins all waiting for the arrival of their bridegroom.

Jesus said in the story, "ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." (Matthew 25:13)

Biltz says people need to examine the quote in its proper context.

"When He says you don't know the day or the hour, He's speaking to the foolish virgins, not the wise virgins," he explained.

Biltz was also asked about the famous statement in Matthew 24:36 when Jesus was discussing the signs of His "coming, and of the end of the world": "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matthew 24:36)

He responded by referring to the annual Feast of Trumpets holiday, saying Israelites never knew the precise moment it began, "because it was based on the sighting of the new moon."

"When He (Jesus) says you won't know the day or the hour, He's telling you it's the Feast of Trumpets because that was known as the feast where no one knew the day or the hour that it would begin," said Biltz. "So it's kind of like if I told you, 'I'm not going to tell you when I'm coming, but "Gobble, gobble, gobble,'" [pointing to] Turkey Day."

Church stressed despite the information suggesting 2015 could be a pivotal time, "We don't know that that will be the concluding year of the tribulation period ... so we're not setting a date and saying this is a warning. We're introducing the possibility of a watch.

  1. Joe,
    Thanks for the in depth explanation! Nothing can be taken out of context and I don't see Pastor Biltz doing this. I have watched his video's and they are fact based and scientific based. He just gives the information as intersting and lets the viewer make their own conclusion. I never heard him set an exact date.

  3. I did check with NASA, there will be a tetrads of total lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses, all fall on Biblical most sacred days. On September 23 2015 will be Tishei 15, the Feast of Tabernacle, representing the day of celebration from bondage of Egypt/Spiritual Babylon. I am convinced that 2015 is the year of the Messiah coming. Unfortunately, "all the tribes of earth mourn" Matthew 24:29. because they forsaken his Law. Isa 24:6, all the earth were deceived by Satan himself. Rev 12:9. Read "the Great Controversy" by E.G. White, it is online for free reading.

  4. There is much that needs to happen before the return of Yeshua, but as the tetrads of 1948 to 1950 coincided with Israel's becoming a nation, so the 2014-2015 time period could well be significant for Israel. The dome of the rock could come down. All the Palestinians could be removed from Israel. A major war could result in taking more surrounding land, or all of the above. The second coming could happen at the 2032-2033 tetrad of eclipses, which also fall on passover and sukkot. Or that set may be the start of the 7 years of tribulation, which end on what some believe is a year of jubilee, a fitting time for Yeshua's return.

  5. I find it interesting the second coming keeps getting pushed back every time it doesn't come to fruition. The fact is that the early Christian were expecting an a return of Christ in their lifetimes, but when it didn't happen there were new books/letters written to explain to the early church why Jesus had not returned. Sorry, but there is zero evidence pointing to a return of any deity, let alone Jesus. If you want to believe it be my guest. All I ask is that you don't stand in the way of making progress toward a better world.

    1. There was no proof Israel was going to be born again as stated in the old testament. But there it is sitting in the middle east.

  8. Esther chapter 9 twelfth month 13th day March 7 still 2011 month of Adar still ties into the May 21,2011 7000 years from 4990bc flood of Noahs Day - May 21,2011 spritually judgment day. See how Esther chapters 1-3 bring you to the 17 day of the second month by very careful study. The end of this world will now truly come as a thief in the night whereas May 21 it could not have because everyone knew about those dates and Oct 21

  10. This is true, the world ending next week was been cancelled until 2015, but I believe the world will be finally coming to an end in 2100 as we know it, so it's a long long years to be waiting as the dating was set up and many many Americans believed that the world will end in 2100 as a biggest destructive solar storms, 14 magnitude earthquakes, mega tsunamis, meteor storms, solar eclipse from the radiation of the sun will be wiping all electricity and grids all over the world in 2100 as the END OF CENTURY. I'm the only knows what it is and something is going to happen and 25 billion Americans will be affected forever AT THE END OF CENTURY as we know it on the right date of the Mayan Calendar, Gregorian Calendar and the Jewish Calendar coming to an end. We said once forever, THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR WILL COMING TO AN END IN 2100 instead of next week, December 21, 2012 and it's from now on a very very very long long time to wait until something is going to happen to all people around the world forever.
