The Blood Moons and Tabernacles

The lunar tetrad we have seen in 2014-2015 points to two festivals:  passover and sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles).

I thank the Lord for pointing me to the answer/revelation concerning what He is pointing to with the Tabernacles blood moons.  This makes me feel slightly foolish for not looking any further than a definition of what sukkot/feast of tabernacles is.

Clearly at least part (and probably all) of our answer lies here:  Zechariah 14.

 What do we see in Zechariah 14?

The day of the Lord, the chastisement of Israel:

1A day of the Lord is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered and divided up within your very walls.
2I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.

Then we see the chastisement of the world:

  3Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle.

 So guess what?  The rabbis who said blood moons are a bad sign for Israel and Solar eclipses are a bad sign for the world do have a scriptural leg to stand on because what we are seeing in 2014-2015 is precisely that.  Blood moons and a full solar eclipse that ties directly into Zechariah 14 which tells us clearly that Israel is in for a rough ride, and so is the world.

 Without any need for interpretation the Lord Himself directly ties this in with Tabernacles:

12This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13On that day people will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will seize each other by the hand and attack one another. 14Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected—great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. 15A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
16Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain. 18If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lordb will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 19This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.

Clearly we have had this gem sitting in plain sight and overlooked by everyone, myself included.

Glory to God.
