Rabbi: Blood moons mean ‘messianic advancement’

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,” says Rabbi Mendel Kessin. “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.
