Today is the first day of the 7-day Feast of Tabernacles, the last of the Feasts of the LORD (not Feast of Israel and not Feast of the Jews). God said in Leviticus 23, “These are MY Feasts!” Feast in Hebrew is moedim, “fixed appointed times on God’s calendar‘.

Today (last night) moon. The 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles is always a full moon. Some years there is a Blood Moon on this day, as in 2014 & 2015 Blood Moon Tetrads. https://mbostrom2.com/tag/tetrad/ Passover and Day 1 of the Feast of Tabernacles are the only Feasts of the Lord that can have a Blood Moon. Blood Moons happen on a ‘full moon’ and Solar Eclipses happen when there is no light on the moon, right before the start of a Hebraic month.

The October Moon has come to be called a “Hunter’s Moon” in North America. It comes from the Native American Indians who lived in the north east area of the United States and they name each full moon after the cycle of what happens on the land that month.
