The sun will become the dark and the moon in blood. "Joel 3: 4 (The Israel Bible ™)
On the afternoon of January 21, as the Tu B & Shvat party begins, a lunar eclipse will pass through Washington D.C., as the president will arrive in the middle of his term. The eclipse will be a super moon of blood, described in Jewish sources as powerful.
In the Gregorian calendar:
The lunar eclipse will be visible throughout North and South America, as well as parts of Western Europe and Northwest Africa, on the afternoon of Sunday, the 20th of January and the first hours of the morning of Monday, January 21. The eclipse will be a supermoon when the moon is in its perigee, the point in its elliptical orbit throughout the month that brings it closer to the Earth. At that time, the moon appears up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent sharper than at its peak, the furthest point on Earth.
This will not only be the first lunar eclipse of 2019, but also the first annual supermarch. At this time, there will be the right conditions to create a moon of blood in which the Moon has a clearly reddish color. This will be the last total lunar eclipse until May 26, 2021.
In the political calendar:
The date also marks the midpoint of Presidency of Donald Trump, which came exactly two years after being judged as the 45th president of the United States. It should be noted that Trump was born on the night of June 14, 1946, in fifteen minutes of a lunar eclipse total and 700 days before the establishment of the state of # 39; Israel. The lucky sevens of Trump did not end there. When he served as president on January 20, 2017, he was 70, seven months and seven days.
In the Jewish calendar:
The party of You B & # 39; shvat, on the fifteenth day of the Hebrew month of Shvat, it begins at sunset the same day. Known as the new year of trees, Tu B & # 39; Shvat is one of the four "New Years" mentioned in Mishnah (the oral law).
Rabbi Mordechai Genut discussed the lunar eclipse in his book Go to B & T, a calendar guide based on esoteric Jewish fonts.
"A lunar eclipse in the month of Shevat is a sign of the height of the appearance of they say (judgment) in the world, "Rabbi Genut said Breaking news from Israel. "This eclipse will govern over the Americas, but for Israel, it will take Chesed (kindness). "
Rabbi Genut specifically described how he will express this judgment.
"There will be a strong increase in earthquakes and volcanoes, even more than we saw last year," Rabbi Genuth said. "Just as the eclipse is a conflict between the sun and the moon to rule the sky, there will be a conflict similar to the Earth. This will begin a time when governments are in balance. Some governments that seem powerful in this moment will fall and others will rise to your site. "
Rabbi Genut bases this in a verse to Isaiah.
On that day, Hashem will punish the host of heaven in heaven and the kings of earth on earth. Isaiah 24:21
Jewish interpretation of lunar and lunar eclipses:
Judaism has a tradition of interpreting solar and lunar eclipses. On his eclipse discussion, the Talmud (Sukkot 29a) specifically described solar eclipses as a bad omen for nations. In fact, the total solar eclipse that transversed the continental United States in August 2018 gave way to the most devastating hurricane season in US history.
The same source of the Talmud specifies that lunar eclipses are a bad omen of Israel, since Israel is spiritually represented by the Moon and the Hebrew calendar is characterized by lunar cycles. If during the lunar eclipse course the moon appears red, since the next eclipse will be, the Talmud affirms that it is a pretext that the great wars will hit the world.
At the end of this section, which describes the alleged content in the eclipses, the Talmud declares an exemption from responsibility: "When Israel makes God's will, they have nothing to fear about all this," citing Jeremy's prophet as to source
So Hashem said: Do not learn to open your way to the nations, and do not let yourself be ashamed of the children of heaven; Let the nations be consternated for them! Jeremiah 10: 2
Rabbi Yosef Berger He applied this doctrine in the Talmud to the current geopolitical situation.
"It is not that the bad cry of the symbolism of the lunar eclipse only disappears," said Rabbi Berger Breaking news from Israel. "It is limited to avoiding our enemies. In this case, wars and evil will fall on our enemies. When choosing to be our enemies, the Arab nations They have taken away the evil that could have succumbed to Israel over themselves. "
"This is especially true when the lunar eclipse falls on Tu B & # 39; Shvat, a day that can only be OK in Israel."
