The Bible says that in the end days there will be signs in the sun the moon and the stars. Nation will rise against nation and Kingdom will rise against Kingdom. Jesus said when you see these signs, look up for your redemption draws near. The month of April however, is gearing up to have the most prophetic signs ever. There has never been so many end times signs in one month which makes April 2014, a very high rapture watch time.
Signs of the Tribulation
On April 1st, everyone in the United States must be signed up for health insurance or face a penalty. Many people believe that once everyone's name and address is in the healthcare database and because medical records are now electronic, all will be required to receive the chip implant or the Mark of the Beast in order to participate in the system. Participation is mandatory and will soon be a world wide system with the trial run in the US. This preliminary sign up procedure is in preparation for the tribulation hour that is soon to come.
Signs in the moon
In April 2014, the full moon falls on April 15th, but this is no ordinary full moon. This particular full moon is a full, red, lunar eclipse, known as a blood moon. Blood moons are rare all by themselves, but there is more. This blood moon is part of a tetrad of four consecutive blood moons that will appear in 2014 through 2015 only on the Feasts of Tabernacles and Passover. And the fact that the first blood moon in the tetrad appears on Passover may be a predestined sign.
A blood moon over Israel has always been associated with Israel going to war, in a way to fulfill prophetic events foretold in the Bible. The tetrad of four blood moons is so rare, that it has only happened 7 times since the birth of Jesus. The last two times it happened was in 1948 when Israel became a nation and 1967, when Israel acquired Jerusalem during the six day war. So this tetrad starting in April is definitely a sign that something big is going to happen involving Israel.
Passover and Easter
As we know Passover is the celebration of the exile of the Jews from Egypt. One of the plagues of Egypt was death of the firstborn. The Jews were instructed to put blood from a lamb around their doorposts so the death angel would pass by their homes. So Passover is in remembrance today as the time when the death angel passed over the houses of the Jews. The blood moon on Passover may also be connected to the blood that was used to spread on the doorposts and the protection from the death angel. Interestingly, Passover is strongly connected to the exile or the bringing of the people out of Egypt, which may also be a strong rapture reference.
Easter is also a significant time frame when it comes to the rapture. At the time Jesus died on the cross, there was darkness and an earthquake, which caused the graves to open. When Jesus came out of the tomb, the people also rose up out of their graves. Matthew 27:51-53; And behold the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth shook and the rocks were split, the tombs were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. And coming out of the tomb after the resurrection, they appeared to many.
Easter is a rapture reference also because of this Bible passage. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Behold, I will tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed.
Signs in the Sun
On April 29th, there will be a solar eclipse. The solar eclipse has to do with the gentile nations going to war. April 29th is also the deadline for the peace talks. If an agreement is not reached on this day, the peace talks will have to be extended, or maybe even put aside for awhile as there may be other more important matters to attend to, like defending a nation.
Wars and Rumors of War
The fact that Russia has taken over Crimea in this point in time, is no coincidence. There is a divine purpose for all that is taking place. Either Russia will escalate their military quests and take over more areas, or due to the crippling sanctions placed on them, they will want to make an agreement. Russia has the power to start WW3 or to make all the Muslim nations stop what they are doing and agree to peace, even if it is false peace. Russia is the only nation with that kind of power over the Middle East, and Russia is the most active participant as the month of April approaches.
The signs of the end are coming together fast, especially in the month of April. Jesus is coming soon, so get ready, be sure you have repented of your sins, that you have asked Jesus into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, and he will save you from that which is about to come. The tribulation hour is at hand, so be sure to reserve your rapture ticket today!
