And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky…and let them serve as signs to mark seasons (feasts)…” And there was evening and morning—the fourth day. Genesis 1:14,19
We are seeing some extraordinary signs in the sky. Last year we saw two lunar eclipses and this year we will see two more. In both years, each of the lunar eclipses is on the same Jewish feast days, Passover and Tabernacles. Plus we have seen one solar eclipse in the middle of the lunar eclipses that just occurred on March 20, which this year was the Jewish New Year.
Jewish tradition views a solar eclipse as an omen or harbinger of distress or crisis for Gentile nations. In light of the solar eclipse on March 20, Orthodox Jews issued a worldwide call to pray for the nations.
