Jesus explained the sequence of the end time events in The Seven Seals  in Revelation and in 'The Olivet Prophecy' in
Matthew 24:

Right now we are on the brink of The 5th Seal / The Tribulation / The Time of Jacob's Trouble which will last 3 1/2
years, an we will fall totally and completely and the vast majority of Sabbath keepers will be killed.

It is only after this that The 6th Seal / The Day of The LORD is opened, and
the first darkening occurs, and it doesn't
sound like an eclipse to me:

Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became
black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of
a mighty wind.

Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved
out of their places.

Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men,
and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

Rev 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne,
and from the wrath of the Lamb:

Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her
light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

The second darkening occurs during The 7th Seal / 4th Trumpet, and it also does not sound like an eclipse to me:

Rev 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and
the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the
night likewise.

The third darkening is The 7th Seal / 7th Trumpet / 5th Bowl, supernatural darkness which follows the scorching of
the Earth during The 7th Seal / 7th Trumpet / 4th Bowl:

Rev 16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

Rev 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these
plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Rev 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and
they gnawed their tongues for pain,

Rev 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

We are not given much in the way of details this time, but we are a long ways from this point in prophecy, and just a
hunch, I doubt this is an eclipse either

The guy selling books and ad space on his Youtube videos likes to quote Joel,
but he doesn't seem to mention the
verses which say the stars are also effected and it is all three, the Sun, the Moon, + the stars at the same
time, and which mention clouds as being the cause:

Isa 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he
shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

Isa 13:10  For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in
his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the
proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Isa 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

Isa 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of
hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

Zep 1:14  The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the
mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

Zep 1:15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of
darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

Zep 1:16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

Zep 1:17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the
LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

Zep 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole
land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the

Eze 30:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Eze 30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!

Eze 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

The "tetrads" are just a gimmick, these eclipses haven't even been close to "blood red", just normal eclipses.

They are the kind of "signs" we are warned to ignore:

Jer 10:1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

Jer 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the
heathen are dismayed at them.

Eclipses, solstices, equinoxes,, conjunctions, etc., these are for the heathen

When The LORD darkens the Earth during The 6th + 7th Seals it will not go unnoticed.
