Total solar eclipse on March 20

Please forgive my delay in getting promised material on here. I've spent the last week with the worst cold in years. That's still coming. Meanwhile.....

Europe's biggest solar eclipse since 1999 is on its way


The headline above is a link to an article about the eclipse that will occur on March 20 this month. We won't see it in the United States, but in Europe, it will be the biggest event they've seen since 1999. They're actually worried about power glitches because a significant portion of their energy is solar.

There are a few interesting things about this particular eclipse:

1. Comes before the last two blood moons of the current tetrad. (Four total lunar eclipses in a row without any partial lunar eclipses in between)
2. First day of Spring
3. Occurs on Nisan 1 - "New Year's Day" on the biblical calendar.
4. Exactly two weeks later, there will be the third total lunar eclipse of the current tetrad on April 4, Passover - (the day before Resurrection Day)
5. Place of maximum total eclipse splits "Old World" and "New World."
6. This month of March - and in fact, the entire biblical year is a match for 33 AD, the year many believe is the year of Jesus' crucifixion.

Will this eclipse mean anything other than another solar eclipse? I don't know. There have been plenty of total solar eclipses followed shortly after by a total lunar eclipse. However, if you remember my blood moon tetrad post, and the recent "Signs in the Heavens" series, you know that the tetrad we're in the middle of is unique among all previous ones. Something to think about, for sure. 

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
