And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. (Genesis 1:14-19)
Following are excerpts from a marvelous article called "And There Shall be Signs...":
April 3, 1996, a full lunar eclipse appeared over Jerusalem. A photograph of
this eclipse appeared in the Jerusalem Post with the caption, “The Moon of
Blood.” When a full lunar eclipse appears, the moon takes on a reddish, almost
bloody appearance. On September 26 of the same year, a second lunar eclipse
created a blood-like image and was visible in Jerusalem on the eve
of the Feast of Tabernacles.
A third lunar eclipse (90%) happened six months later during PURIM,
the celebration to remember how the famed Jewish Queen Esther defeated the
wicked plans of Haman.
Thus, THREE lunar eclipses occurring within one year on or near three Jewish celebration days is almost unheard of. These three “blood moons,” caused tremendous excitement and anxiety among rabbis in Israel, according to the same article. A blood moon, which appeared twice the same year and fell on the first and last feast of Israel, indicated to them this was a cosmic sign from God of impending trouble in Israel. The ancient belief was that a blood moon (lunar eclipse) could symbolize BLOODSHED and WAR.

Israel and Egypt are always scripturally connected in Bible history AND prophecy. The “HE” in Daniel 11 is none other than the Antichrist. Ezekiel records unusual cosmic activity during this same time. This prophetic passage may have two possible interpretations. First, the “clouds” spoken of may form through massive explosions of weapons and bombs, who aftermath fills the skies with dark suffocating pillars of smoke and gas. This would create a dark cloud covering over both the sun and the moon. The second possibility is that this darkness will be caused by a COMPLETE SOLAR ECLIPSE. Solar eclipses over Egypt are actually very rare. Yet, one occurred just a few months back on October 3, 2005 at 12:50 p.m. Cairo time, and another is scheduled for March 29, 2006 at 11:52 a.m. Cairo time. The NINTH plague to hit Egypt in the time of Moses happened in the first of Nisan. March 29, 2006 is the FIRST OF NISAN ON THE JEWISH CALENDAR! In essence, this upcoming solar eclipse over Egypt will happen on the same date in Jewish history when Egypt was put in darkness during the times of MOSES.
