Epiphany, and the blood moons as they
relate to 2015, see:
The Rest of the Story

 5 pairs of blood moons   
4 pairs of solar eclipses 
1 common date to all:   
 1/5/2015 "Epiphany Eve"
1/6/2015 is Epiphany

 Epiphany is one of the
 oldest Christian holidays, 
     and Epiphany means: manifestation of Christ

Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, the
firstborn over all creation. For by Jesus all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Jesus and for
Jesus. Jesus is before all things, and in Jesus all things hold together. Col. 1:15-17


epic epiphany
Passover 2015 actually began at twilight Friday April 3rd like it did in April 33 AD.
Passover runs from evening to evening which is why the eclipses are on different days.

Tetrads and Triples

It's interesting that January 5, 2015, "Epiphany Eve" is the midpoint of the 2010-2019 triples and the 2014-2015 tetrad.  January 6, 2015 is Epiphany.  Consider the context in light of these 2015 Bible dictionary words:

In Strong's Bible dictionary, the Greek word G2015 is "epiphaneia from G2016; a manifestation, that is, (specifically) the advent of Christ (past or future): appearing, brightness.)

“Advent” in Wikipedia is from the Latin word “adventus” which is the translation of the Greek word “parousia”, and is commonly used to refer to the Second Coming of Christ.

The word parousia is found in the following verses: Matthew 24:3, 27, 37, 39; 1 Corinthians 15:23; Hebrews 10:24; 1 Thessalonians 2:19; 3:13; 4:15; 5:23; 2 Thessalonians 2:1, 8, 9; James 5:7, 8; 2 Peter 1:16; 3:4, 12; 1 John 2:28.

There are 6 scriptures in which the Greek word G2015 is found: 2 Thes. 2:8, 1 Tim. 6:14, 2 Tim. 1:10, 2 Tim. 4:1, 2 Tim. 4:8, and Titus 2:13. All of them are related to our LORD's 2nd coming and/or appearing.

In Strong's Bible dictionary, the Hebrew word H2015 is "haphak" - descriptive words include: to turn about or over; by implication to change, overturn, return, be converted, overthrow

H2015 appears 94 times in 92 verses in the Old Testament. It is translated 'turn' 57 times and 'overthrow' 13 times.  Frequently, the word haphak is associated with judgment. The first nine occurrences confirm this: : i) Judgment of Adam and Eve in Gen 3:24 ... a flaming sword which turned every way [H2015] to keep the way of the tree of life; ii) Judgment and the overthrow [H2015] of Sodom and Gomorrah (3x); iii) Judgment of the Ten Plagues -- the rod which was turned [H2015] to a serpent; the river were turned [H2015] to blood; And the LORD turned [H2015] a mighty strong west wind; and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned [H2015] against the people (5x).

(It is interesting to note that the fall feasts in 33 AD also fell on 9/13, 9/23, and 9/28 like in 2015,
and even on the same days of the week.)

Tetrads Throughout History
This site says, "( * Special Note * ) The 14th April 2014 Jewish Passover and 8th October 2014 Sukkot Lunar Eclipses take place on the SAME EXACT DATES as did the 70 AD Jewish Passover & Sukkot – Feast of Tabernacles lunar eclipses which occurred when the Roman Army destroyed the 2nd Jewish Temple & Masada Military Fortress effectively ending over 1,000 years of Jewish rule in the Nation of Israel !"

Related Scriptures
Joel 2:29-31 - 
Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. 30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
31 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

Acts 2:19-21 - 19 I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'

Isaiah 13:9-11 - See, the day of the LORD is coming --a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger-- to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. 10 The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. 11 I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.

Rev. 6:12-17 - I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?“ 

Matt. 24:21-31 -
  For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 

 "Immediately after the distress of those days "`the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.' "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 

  These Bible passages seem to be saying that strange things will be happening with the sun and moon around the time Jesus comes back on the Day of the LORD to make things right between those that know Him and those that don't.
