Moon Appears Red In Rare Lunar Eclipse Lasting Almost Two Hours June 15, 2011

A rare  lunar eclipse, the longest in ten years, lasting nearly two hours, occurred June 15, 2011. For those watching, the full lunar eclipse that could only be seen in Israel, and parts of the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and Australia, the moon appeared a red, coppery brown color.

What is even more rare is that four consecutive red or blood moons will be occurring in the very near future in 2014 and 2015 on the Feast Days of the Lord. Leviticus 23:2, 4, 37, 44.

The Lord is giving His people on earth a preview of the dark days that lie just ahead of us as United States and EU representatives meet with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu,  pushing for the division of Jerusalem and a land for peace deal  promoted by Obama back to the 1967 armistice lines.

A red moon is significant in the Holy Scriptures and is related to the last days prophecy just prior to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The beloved Apostle Peter reminds us in his sermon in Acts 2:19-20 of the written Word from Joel the prophet in Joel 2:28-32 that the moon will turn blood red just before the great day and the coming of our Lord.

This is an awesome time to be  watching the signs in the heavens that Jesus spoke in Matthew 24:29, Revelation 6:12-13,  just before His Coming to gather his people unto Himself in the air. Maranatha!

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.  Luke 21:28

    Two hours is a long, long time for an eclipse too, given the speed of the earth, moon and sun in motion.

    I remember seeing eclipses over the years, of the moon, none of them blood red and none of them lasting a whole two hours.

    Think about it, how quickly the earth, moon and sun move, in motion about one another - and isn't it just odd too, that it would have taken two entire hours for the earth, moon and sun to move out of the eclipse position.

    Does the sun take two hours to set from when it gets near the horizon line then dips under. Does the moon two hours later in the sky still sit at the same location it was when you first looked at it. Normally, when you see things in the heavens, like the sun and the moon, it's not sitting still in the same place, not for two whole long hours.

    Two hours - that is a very long time period - as if to make certain everyone sees and is unable to avoid seeing it.

    The amount of time, on top of the blood red color, on top of the fact it can be seen around the world (thanks to modern electronic media) - yes, it is a vivid warning and very much a strong statement by God that the end-times may not be that far away.

    I thought it also interesting, the viewing area for this eclipse was from Africa (Egypt) through the Middle East (Israel and the Muslim states) and on into western Asia (Gog and Magog territory).

    You have written a most excellent analysis.

    As you say, the Lord is definitely trying to get people's attention with this 100 minute total lunar eclipse.
