The First Blood Moon of the Tetrad to occur in 2014 and 2015 on Jewish Feasts - which I feel may be related to the onset of the Great Tribulation - will appear on the night of Passover in 2014, which is April 15th this year. In addition, Easter is on April 20th, which is the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the exact day that the firstfruits offering would have been made in the temple in Jerusalem. Interestingly, it turns out that April has also historically been associated with major persons and events in US and world history connected to destruction and war, and this raises the question if April of this year will mark more devastating natural, causal, accidental, and militarily-backed events.
Below is a partial list of past events that occurred between April 12th and 20th in history. Part of it was taken from the History Place web site (historyplace.com), while part of the list was also pieced together from other history web sites, including the History Orb web site and Wikipedia. In particular, what caught my attention on these dates in April are the following events:
The American Civil War began on April 12th, 1861, resulting in over 600,000 causalities; President Abraham Lincoln was shot and mortally wounded on April 14th, 1865; U.S. warplanes bombed the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Benghazi on April 14th, 1986; the Titanic sank on April 15th, 1812 with a loss of 1,500 people; a 7.0 earthquake hit Montenegro on April 15th, 1979, resulting in 136 causalities and leaving over 100,000 homeless; the Boston Marathon Bombings occurred on April 15th, 2013, killing 3 people and injuring an estimated 264 others
April 16th through 18th also have seen many terrifying events. On April 16th, 2007, for example, the Virginia Tech massacre became the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The gunman, Seung-Hui Cho, shot 32 people to death and injured 23 others before committing suicide; an industrial accident explosion on a french ship in Texas City harbor on April 16th, 1947 destroyed the harbor-front, killing over 500 and injuring over 8,000 people; a deadly earthquake hit San Francisco on April 18th, 1906, causing much destruction and the loss of 4,000 lives; the first US air raid on mainland Japan occurred during World War II on April 18th, 1942, and on April 18th, 1996, at least 106 civilians were killed when the Israeli Defense Forces accidentally shelled the UN compound at Qana in Lebanon during an armed conflict with Hezbollah Terrorists.
Following the above, April 19th stands out as one of the most violent days in history. On April 19th, 1587, Sir Frances Drake of England sailed into Cadiz Spain and sank the Spanish fleet. On that day in 1775, 70 armed American militiamen and a British advance guard unit faced off in Massachusetts, officially starting the American Revolution, which resulted in approximately 50,000 US causalities; Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto staged a doomed armed revolt against Nazi SS troops attempting to forcibly deport them to death camps on April 19, 1943.
Also on April 19th in 1993, the compound of the Branch Davidian religious cult in Waco, Texas was burned to the ground with 82 persons inside, including 17 children; a massive car-bomb explosion destroyed the entire side of a nine story federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 persons, including 19 children inside a day care center on April 19th, 1995; and on that day in 1945, the British Army liberated the Nazi concentration camp Bergen-Belsen, while the US Army occupied the Nazi POW concentration camp in Colditz.
April 20th also stands out as a violent and infamous day in US and world history. On that day in 1914, a group of miners peacefully seeking recognition of their union were attacked by National Guardsmen paid by the mining company in Ludlow, Colorado, and 5 men and a boy were killed by machine gun fire while 11 children and two women burned to death as the miners' tent colony was destroyed.
Also on April 20th in 1920, the Balfour Declaration was recognized, making the land called Palestine that was part of the defeated Ottoman Empire a British Mandate. Then on April 20, 1999, one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history occurred at the Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado - in which 12 classmates and a teacher ware killed and more than 20 other persons were wounded before the shooters killed themselves. Also of note is the fact that April 20th was the birthday of Adolf Hitler, whose war crimes include precipitating the deaths of an estimated 50 million persons, including over 6 million Jews in World War II.
So whether or not something catastrophic is on the near horizon of world history, one thing is absolutely certain. Something catastrophic in nature could indeed take place in the remainder of April this year, or sometime later in the year. Therefore, it's best if we all remain alert and prepared to leave this planet when Yahshua comes for His Bride, which could happen any day now - likely along with several other catastrophic events happening simultaneously.
