This year is still not finished, but there are some predictions about the end of the world in the one that comes. Biblical conspiracists that look into our Bible for some apocalyptic prophecies are afraid that the Blood Moon lunar eclipse that comes on the 21st of January will mark the end of this world.
In the month of January 2019, the Moon is going to pass somewhere near the center of the shadow of the Earth, and it is going to turn a blood-red color because it will be restricted by the sunlight. What is going to occur during this Super Blood Moon?
In the past, we heard and expected a lot of supposed apocalypses, and until now none of those predictions came true.
What is the so-called Blood Moon prophecy?
According to some sources, the prediction for this Blood Moon came courtesy of one American preacher named Pastor Begley, who is wrong about predicting apocalypses. He believes that there are some warnings in the Bible which tells about a specific Blood Moon which marks the ends of humankind and the Lord’s (Christian) coming.
According to the beliefs of conspiracy theorists, the so-called Blood Moon is, in fact, a sign of an apocalypse which is prophesied in the Book of Revelation, Book of Arts and Book of Joel. There are three biblical pieces which mention this Moon which took the deep red color and turned into blood, but none of them proves that the Blood Moon is a sign of the destruction of the world.
However, the preacher also said that it is definitely the sign of an end and that the U.S. is going to play a fundamental role in that time. Even though the natural astronomical phenomenon is one which occurs every year, preachers think and also believe that it is a sure sign of the coming of the end. The last Blood Moon was in this year, happening on the 27th of January, and despite there was claiming that the world will end, we are still here.
Begley also claimed that the protests that happened in Paris recently are another proof that he was telling the truth about the apocalypse, saying that our Lord is soon going to be here with us, as God really loves the architecture of Paris, and he hates to see it all on fire, and also hates the color yellow.
He cited the Book of Joel, particularly the passage 2:30-31 which said:
And I will shew wonders in the heavens and the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.
This same passage has been written in the Book of Acts too, which is the fifth book that belongs to the New Testament.
Another proponent of this Blood Moon eclipse prophecy is the preacher named Irvin Baxter, who is also the president of Endtime Ministeries. He also said that the Bible is teaching us that an end is coming in front of us and that is going to be the best prophetic fulfillment in the last 2,000 years.
Is the world going to come to an end with this Blood Moon in January?
Despite all the warnings which came from the preachers and also the Blood Moon prophecy purveyors, conspiracy theorists do not claim that the world is going to end in January.
However, no matter of how it would be, there is no scientific reason or also evidence that suggests the Blood Moon represents an apocalyptic sign from the heavens above.
At a time of a total lunar eclipse, the Moon becomes red as of an effect which is known as Rayleigh Scattering – this same effect is the one that paints the skies blue, and the sunsets orange.
We just have to wait in order to see if the apocalyptic signs, according to preachers, point to a catastrophic event on the horizon, or are not such signs at all, but we are simply going to see another beautiful Blood Moon in the night sky of the 21st of January.
