Feast of Tabernacles, Blood Moon, and the Shemitah

OUR BIBLE study this morning is very timely. We cover ritual “cutting” (bloodletting) to mourn the dead, jubilee years (the shemitah), dietary laws, and the three major feasts decreed by Yahweh for Israel: Unleavened Bread, Weeks, and Tabernacles (Booths), or Sukkot.

The Feast of Tabernacles begins at sundown tonight.  Tonight also marks the fourth “blood moon” of this tetrad, which is a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses—coinciding with Jewish holidays—with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses. What does it all mean?

We look at Joel chapter 2, corresponding verses in Revelation 9, discuss the Day of the Lord, and speculate briefly on the Septuagint translation of Amos 7, which tells us the name of the king of an invading army of locusts: Gog.
