An Interesting Look Into The Coming Four Blood Moons And Our Possible Near Future-
Jesus pointed to the midpoint of the tribulation as the time when 'antichrist' sets up what Daniel called the "Abomination of Desolation". Jesus tells those in Israel who see this to head for the hills and not to turn back, saying, "Then there shall be 'Great Tribulation', such as was not since the beginning of the world" (Matthew 24:21). Daniel described the Abomination of Desolation taking place in the middle of the week (or the middle of the seven years). And Jesus refers to the second half of the tribulation after the Abomination of Desolation as 'great tribulation'.
Later in the text Jesus goes back and refers to the first half of the seven years as 'tribulation' while clearly calling the second half of the seven years as 'great tribulation'. This is clearly what He is referencing when He says, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days then the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light" (Matthew 24:29).
Could this next tetrad of eclipses on Passover and Tabernacles be pointing to the midpoint of the tribulation? Are we on the at the door of the beginning of Daniel's 70th week where the world will see three and a half years of 'tribulation', then the sun will be darkened and the moon turned to blood, then there shall be 'great tribulation' such as the world has not seen?"
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world" (Psalm 19:1-4)."
"Prior to the 1900's no tetrad of eclipses had occured on the biblical feast days in either the 1800's, the 1700's, the 1600's, or the 1500's. You have to go all the way back to 1493 and 1494 the year following the Spainish expultion of the Jews in 1492. This is also the year a Jew named Christopher Columbus discovered America.
So is there another tetrad of blood moons on the horizon that falls on the biblical feast days of Passover and Tabernacle? Just one in the next 500 years! In 2014 and 2015 a tetrad of blood moons will fall on the biblical feasts of Passover and Tabernacles. Then not again until the year 2629 and 2630. What event is on our horizon? Could tribulation be on our horizon, followed by great tribulation?"

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come. (Old Testament, Joel, Chapter 2)
The Blood Moon Tetrads do not mark the Second Coming of Christ but the Abomination of Desolation. Many calling attention to the Tetrads are claiming they mark the Second Coming. However, we know that in the Last Days we can expect people to claim "the time is past".
Daniel's 70 Weeks do not start in 1947, but in 1950 with the "Law of Return". This means that the 7-year Tribulation begins (Abinidi's Fire) this year in 2013. We can expect a nuclear Abomination of Desolation in 2016, and we can expect Zion established around 2020.
The Time is Past:
Remember that in the Last Days the Wicked will say that Christ delayeth His coming like Israel said Moses (type of Christ) delayed his coming down from the mountain. But according to the Righteous, Christ will hasten His coming in righteousness or their would be no flesh left upon the Earth. The Time could be hastened by our building Zion and purifying ourselves. "When we build it, He will come".
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, (New Testament, Matthew, Chapter 24)
6 And they began to rejoice over their brethren, saying: Behold the time is past, and the words of Samuel are not fulfilled; therefore, your joy and your faith concerning this thing hath been vain. (Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi, Chapter 1)
26 And in that day shall be heard of wars and rumors of wars, and the whole earth shall be in commotion, and men’s hearts shall fail them, and they shall say that Christ delayeth his coming until the end of the earth. (Doctrine and Covenants, Doctrine and Covenants, Section 45)
Tribulation: Yes we will be subject to the 7 years of Tribulation (7 Trumpets). Only after the Abomination of Desolation will we call the great Solemn Assembly at Adam-ondi-Ahman and begin building Zion. At that point Missouri will be left desolate. However we will will be safe in Zion for the Wrath (7 Vials). The events of the Tribulation are all man-caused/God-allowed. The events of the Wrath are God-caused.
“[I] explained concerning the coming of the Son of Man; also that it is a false idea that the Saints will escape all the judgments, whilst the wicked suffer; for all flesh is subject to suffer, and ‘the righteous shall hardly escape’ [see D&C 63:34]; still many of the Saints will escape, for the just shall live by faith [see Habakkuk 2:4]; yet many of the righteous shall fall a prey to disease, to pestilence, etc., by reason of the weakness of the flesh, and yet be saved in the Kingdom of God. So that it is an unhallowed principle to say that such and such have transgressed because they have been preyed upon by disease or death, for all flesh is subject to death; and the Savior has said, ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged.’ [See Matthew 7:1.]”12 (TOTPJosephSmith)
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (New Testament, John, Chapter 16)
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, (New Testament, 1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5)
Trumpet 1= Curse of the land
Trumpet 2= Curse of the sea
Trumpet 3= Curse of the rivers, wormwood
Trumpet 4= Curse/sign of sun, moon, stars
Trumpet 5 = Abomination of Desolation. at 3.5 years. We are going to be around for this one. This is why we have food storage. Then Joel tells us to have a Solemn Assembly afterwards. I don't think there will be a callout beforehand. Nuclear attack will be sudden but it will be 3mo before the fallout has washed away. Im not sure at what point foreign invasion will occur. The invasion of heathen armies will take a bit. Then again, Im not sure how long it will take to defeat invading Chinese and Russian armies who will surround Utah (Rev 9 talks about 5 months). After the defeat we will then be establishing Zion and gather in survivors.
Trumpet 6 = Armageddon in Israel. (doesn't affect Zion)AMERICA
Trumpet 7 = Wrath = 7 vials. (doesn't affect Zion)AMERICA
7 Vials of Wrath all occur during Trumpet 7. I think the wrath doesnt begin until after the 7 years Tribulation because Trumpet 6 is Armageddon and there still needs to be a war in Jerusalem and then Jerusalem will need time to build their temple and gather in their survivors on those continents. Then the wrath will come and only Zion and Jerusalem will be safe.
