Over the history of rabbinic study, an eclipse of the moon is always an omen against Israel, and an eclipse of the sun is always an omen against the world. I wonder which Bear Omen will it be?
Sukkah 29a It was taught: R. Meir said, Whenever the luminaries are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished. Our Rabbis taught, When the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when Lavanah (Moon) is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by Lavanah (Moon) and idolaters by the sun. If it is in eclipse in the east, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the east; if in the west, it is a bad omen for those who dwell in the west; if in the midst of heaven it is bad omen for the whole world. If its face is red as blood, [it is a sign that] the sword is coming to the world; if it is like sack-cloth, the arrows of famine are coming to the world; if it resembles both, the sword and the arrows of famine are coming to the world. If the eclipse is at sunset calamity will tarry in its coming; if at dawn, it hastens on its way: but some say the order is to be reversed. And there is no nation which is smitten that its gods are not smitten together with it, as it is said, And against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments. But when Israel fulfill the will of the Omnipresent, they need have no fear of all these [omens] as it is said, Thus saith the HaShem,' Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the nations are dismayed at them, the idolaters will be dismayed, but Israel will not be dismayed.
The easy Bear Omen answer, during the upcoming Blood Moon Tetrad, is a war with Israel instigated by Putin through Iran. That could always happen, because Iranian leaders believe that a world war will hasten the return of their Mahdi, the Twelfth Imam, a mythical anti-messianic figure. And Putin, the bear, is spoiling for a fight.
The more ponderous Bear Omen would be the fall of the USA. My feeling is that a precipitous economic fall will begin after Passover 2014. After a severe market plunge, worldwide Jews will be blamed for manufacturing the collapse, and there will be no one (other than HaShem) left in Israel’s corner. The signs of economic stress are everywhere.
Yahushua linked the birth pangs of messiah to a generation, and the fig tree blossom season (moedim).
“Now let the fig tree teach you its lesson: when its branches begin to sprout and leaves appear, you know that summer is approaching. In the same way, when you see all these things, you are to know that the time is near, right at the door. Yes! I tell you that this people [generation] will certainly not pass away before all these things happen. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Matthew 24:32-35 (CJB)
By Passover time, the fig trees are blooming, and we are nearing the end of a generation of Jews that witnessed the birth of their nation (1948). After the year 2022, if the average life expectancy of a Judean man born in 1948 is 74.55 years, then this prophecy will be a moot point. I believe that we’re in the fig tree blooming season.
Many prophets state that America is Babylon. Babylon has fallen.
