Each and every person ever born onto this earth will also, one day, exit this earth.

Many Christians have been lulled into the false assurance that just because they have professed Jesus as Lord, that they are Heaven-bound upon this exit.

However, if they harbor unforgiveness or any form of resentment to any degree; they may be shocked and horrified when they one day pass into eternity and instead find themselves falling headlong into the abyss of Hell.

The Lord Jesus clarified many times to us that a state of unforgiveness will bar us from entering Heaven. Thus, there will be no excuse for any of us not to have known.

Unforgiveness may be thought to include the emotional states of "holding a grudge" or having a noted dislike for someone.

It can also be extended to include negative feelings, irritation or anger towards another. These types of emotions are all displays of unforgiveness towards our "neighbor".

Scripture forewarns us that entrance to Heaven is impossible when one has an unforgiving heart. It is a Kingdom principle that cannot be altered; inasmuch as gravity on this planet cannot be altered.  

That is why Jesus consistently warned us of the eternal consequences of unforgiveness. 

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant in the Book of Matthew conveys our relationship with both God and with others. It portrays how Jesus paid our debt that He didn't owe and that we ourselves, could never pay. 

This unmerited pardon of the insurmountable debt of our sins by the Father is illustrated by the "certain king" who forgave the debt of the servant who owed much.

In this parable, the debtor to the king who was forgiven such a vast amount refused to forgive a fellow servant, who owed to him only a small amount.

So are our actions when as Believers, who desire God's compete forgiveness, choose instead, not to forgive others.

Just as the king's response to the unforgiving servant was to then completely revoke the cancellation of the massive debt that the servant owed the king, so too will we be treated if we do not forgive our "brother from" our "heart":
"Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.
As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.

 "The servant fell on his knees before him. 'Be patient with me,' he begged, 'and I will pay back everything.' The servant's master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.

 "But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii.  He grabbed him and began to choke him. 'Pay back what you owe me!' he demanded.

 "His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, 'Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.'

 "But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.

When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.

 "Then the master called the servant in. 'You wicked servant,' he said, 'I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?'

In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.

 "This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart." Matthew 18 :21-35

Preceding the above Parable, note that Peter had asked of Jesus: 

  "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Matthew 18:20

Note Jesus's response:

Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times". Matthew 12:21

As such, even when we encounter a repeat offender we are to repeatedly forgive, with sincerity from our heart.

In the Lord's Prayer, when Jesus instructed us exactly how and what to pray, He reiterated how imperative it is for us to forgive:

"And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. " Matthew 6:12

This model prayer given to us by our Lord and Savior charges us to both examine and address the matter of forgiveness in our hearts, on a daily basis.
No matter what the offense perpetrated against us... whether real or imagined, purposeful or by accident, we are to not only offer but also bear true heartfelt forgiveness.

Holding on to feelings of unforgiveness never harms the source/perpetrator. It only harms the one harboring it. 

In fact, the object of the unforgiving attitude is often virtually unaware and totally unaffected. Meanwhile. the one holding the unforgiveness in their heart is not only emotionally and spiritually miserable, but actually in the danger of the fires of Hell.

In conclusion, harboring unforgiveness only hurts us during this earthly life by removing our peace and joy.

As such, it can actually cause an emotional "hell on earth" as well as the terrifyingly real potential of literally sending one to Hell for eternity.

Jesus made it perfectly clear that our sins are not forgiven us if we do not forgive others. If our sins are not forgiven, we cannot enter into the presence of God.

The holy and righteous God cannot tolerate sin in His presence. Therefore, if we choose to retain unforgiveness, then we also retain our sins.

"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6: 14-15

To reiterate, forgiving others is not optional for Christians. It is a Kingdom principle upon which the violation of, negates salvation because if we do not forgive others, our sins are not forgiven us.

Especially in these Last Days, we all need to be mindful of our stance with our Creator and with our fellow "servants". May we all choose to willingly forgive others, just as He lovingly and  willing offers to forgive us.

As we close in on God's last days plan, it as if the puzzle pieces are flying into place. Everything seems to be coming more and more into focus.

It appears that the closer we get, the more light that God is allowing to be shed on the details of His end times plan.

In 2008, Mark Biltz, a pastor who is a  Messianic Jew, discovered an astronomical phenomenon that is indeed "astronomical" in importance!

Before dissecting these amazing phenomena though, these facts need to be understood:

1)The Feast Days outlined in the book of Leviticus are not just Jewish Feast Days. They are instead, the Feast Days of the Lord. 

God stressed to us that they are HIS feast days so that
ALL of His followers
, Jew and Gentile, would  observe His appointed feasts and be able to recognize their importance in God's prophetic plan:

Leviticus 23:
1The Lord said to Moses, 2“Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed feasts, the appointed feasts of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.

2)God's appointed feasts/sacred assemblies and their different names, which may be used interchangeably, are as follows:


2)Unleavend Bread
5)Rosh Hashanah/Feast of Trumpets/Yom  Teruah)
6)Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur
7)TABERNACLES/ Sukkoth/Ingathering)

Note: Passover is the first Feast Day of the year to be observed and Tabernacles is the last Feast Day of the year to be observed.

3) A total lunar eclipse produces a "blood red moon".

4) According to NASA, four total lunar eclipses in a row is known as a tetrad.

5)God placed the sun, moon and stars in the heavens as
signals of things to come:

"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 (owth), and for seasons (moed), and for days, and years." Genesis 1:14

"owth" - (in the sense of appearing): a signal

"moed"- an appointment, a fixed time or season: also a signal (as appointed beforehand):  appointed (signal, time)

6) God's appointed Feast Days are all reckoned according to the stages of the moon. Thus, we can see that the moon is indeed a signal and can be  rendered as both an "owth", as well as a "moed".

While collating
the Jewish Calendar and NASA's eclipse website, Pastor Biltz made the amazing discoveries:

The year 2014 has two "blood red moons" or total eclipses of the moon; one occurring on April 15, 2014 (the very day of the Feast of Passover) and other occurring on October 8, 2014 (the very day of the Feast of Tabernacles).

These two eclipses are immediately followed by two additional "blood moons" in the year 2015; one occurring on April 4, 2015 (the very day of the Feast of Passover) and one occurring on September 28, 2015 (the very day of the Feast of Tabernacles).

Therefore, for two years in a row, there will be a total lunar eclipse/blood moons falling exactly on God's first, Passover, and then last, Tabernacles, appointed Feast Days:
The Tetrads of 2014 through 2015:

April 15, 2014 Passover Total Lunar Eclipse
October 8, 2014 Tabernacles Total Lunar Eclipse
April 4, 2015 Passover Total Lunar Eclipse
September 28, 2015 Tabernacles Total Lunar Eclipse

After the above four "blood moons" of 2014 and 2015, there are no more such Biblicial tetrads occurring on Jewish holidays for almost 500 years!

Biltz further discovered that there have been a total of ONLY SEVEN (7) Passover/Tabernacles tetrads since 1 AD:

162/163 A.D.
795/796 A.D.
842/843 A.D.
860/861 A.D.
1493/1494 A.D.
1949/1950 A.D.
1967/1968 A.D.

Noteworthy is the fact that the number 7 is God's number representing completion and that the 2014/2015 A.D. Tetrads on Passover and then on Tabernacles, will be only the eighth (8th) such tetrad in more than 2000 years.

So, tetrads aligning perfectly with the Lord's Feast Days, are rare beyond belief.

Biltz also noticed that there are two solar eclipses coming in the year 2015, wherein the sun will be temporarily blocked out.

1)The first solar eclipse will occur on March 20, 2015, which also happens to mark the very first day (Nisan 1) of the sacred/Biblical calendar (as outlined in Leviticus). 

This will be exactly 14 days before the "blood red moon" lunar eclipse coming on April 4, 2015 which is Passover.

2)The second solar eclipse will occur on September 13, 2015, which also happens to mark the very first day of the Jewish civil calendar, which is the Feast Day of Rosh Hashanah/Feast of Trumpets.

This will be exactly 14 days before the "blood red moon" lunar eclipse coming on September 28, 2015, which is The Feast of Tabernacles.

Note that both of the below verses, which refer to the "great and glorious/terrible day of the Lord" appear to allude to the beginning of the Great Tribulation (great and DREADFUL day of the Lord) and quite possibly a simultaneous Rapture (great and
GLORIOUS day of the Lord").

Both verses ascribe that a darkened sun as well as a blood moon will usher in this time period:

Joel:31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

Acts 2:20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lor

It is very possible that the aforementioned solar and lunar eclipses of 2014/2015 may well be the fulfillment of these verses.

Even more astounding about these tetrads are the facts surrounding the two Tetrads just previous to 2014/2015.

The Tetrads prior to 2014/2015, tied to Hebrew Holidays, are extremely significant in regards to God's chosen people, Israel.

They occurred two years running, right after modern day Israel became a nation in 1948 and then, right after Israel recaptured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in 1967:

The Tetrad of 1967/1968-Tied to the 7 day war where Israel took Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, in June 1967:


April 24 1967   Passover Total Lunar Eclipse
October 18, 1967 Tabernacles Total Lunar Eclipse
April 13, 1968 Passover  Total Lunar Eclipse
October 6, 1968 Tabernacles  Total Lunar Eclipse

NOTE: Even though Israel declared themselves a nation in 1948,  the first permanent government didn't take office until Jan 25, 1949.  Israel had a transitional government in 1948.

In this way, the Tetrad can tie to the year 1949 for the first elected office of that year and the birth year still be 1948. 

The prior Tetrad of 1949/1950 was tied to the rebirth of the nation of Israel on May 14, 1948.: 

April 13, 1949   Passover    Total Lunar Eclipse                                                         

Oct, 7, 1949    Tabernacles Total lunar Eclipse                                                                
 April 2,   1950  Passover    Total Lunar Eclipse                                                         

Sept. 26, 1950 Tabernacles Total Lunar Eclipse                                                          

Incredibly, the 1949/1950 and 1967/1968  Tetrads perfectly bookmark the inception of modern day Israel as a nation and then her recapture of God's Holy City, Jerusalem and His Holy Mountain, The Temple Mount.

The current 2014/2015 Tetrads appear to denote the "end of the story", possibly marking Israel's final redemption, wherein the Jewish nation will finally come to recognize Yeshua as Savior, Lord and King.

As unbelievable as the details of these Tetrads are, there is yet another jaw dropping factor centered around this Fall's culminating 2015 Blood Moon.

As the following video outlines, this year is a Shemitah/Sabbath year. Not only is it a Shemitah year, but it also appears to be the Shemitah before the 50th year. The 50th year is known as the Jubilee year.

The Jubilee year is God's appointed year in which all lands were Biblically mandated to be returned to their original owners, all debts forgiven and all captives set free.

It is important to realize that the 50th year, the Jubilee year, could only be declared on the holiest day of the year, The Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur, which just so happens to fall on September 23, 2015 this year.

Here is where it really gets jaw dropping! 

Astonishingly, this year's Day of Atonement, on September 23. 2015, 
is precisely, to the very day, exactly 50 Biblical years from June 7, 1967; when Israel regained the Temple Mount and God's Eternal city of Jerusalem.

Israel regaining possession of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in 1967 appears to pinpoint it as the last Jubilee year, when all ownership is restored to the original owners. This would then point directly to 2015 as the next Jubilee year.

As previously pointed out, the 2014/2015 Tetrad is the eighth (8th) over the past more than 2000 years. The number 8 symbolizes new beginnings, which perfectly corresponds with the Jubilee year.

When you stop and consider that 1967 is also the year of the previous
1967/1968 Blood Moon Tetrad, there is no disputing that the fingerprints of God are all over these events.

Unbelievably, there were no tetrads whatsoever, for five hundred (500) years prior to the above 3 Tetrads, which had all precisely bookmarked major events in the history of modern day Israel.

The preceding Tetrad to the three Tetrads occurring during the past 66 1/2 years, was  500 years prior, in 1493/1494.

The blood moons, on Passover/Tabernacles 1493/1494, were tied to the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1493.

Therefore, the relationship of the tetrads falling exactly on God's Feast Days, in conjunction with significant occurrences in the lives of His chosen people, Israel, is astonishingly clear!

Note: A lunar eclipse/blood moon is considered to bode bad future events for Israel and a solar eclipse/darkened sun is an omen to the Gentile nations (non-Jews). 

As such, these perfectly corresponding eclipses may well warn of the coming of the Tribulation Period, which will overtake the whole world.

The fact that these 2014/2015 Tetrads are in total alignment with what appears to be both  the Shemitah and Jubilee years (when all debts are forgiven and all prisoners set free) is beyond amazing!

It may perhaps even foreshadow the timing of the Rapture, in conjunction with the beginning of the Tribulation.

Interestingly, the generation that saw Israel become a nation is approximately 66 years old. If a Biblical generation is 70 years as often theorized, then this generation is fast heading to a close.

Jesus told us that the "generation would not pass away" until all had been fulfilled. Is this yet another mathematical marker of Last Days' prophecy showing us just how very short the days now are?
"Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place" Luke 21:32

God the creator of all, lovingly set out His prophetic plans in the Heavens, as well as in His Word. He desires that all of His people are focused and ready for the return of the Messiah Yeshua, Jesus the Christ.

Therefore, may we all heed these blaring warning signs that the Lord
has mercifully provided us, by seeking the Kingdom of God above all else, loving and forgiving all people.
