END OF THE WORLD? Super Blue Blood Red Moon is a ‘sign of the APOCALYPSE’
The lunar phenomenon will take place on January 31, and the next one will not be until 2028.
Christian conspiracy theorists are claiming that as result of the spectacular lunar display, Christ will appear on Earth and herald in the end of days.
Followers of Christ point to a verse in Luke 21:25-26, which says the end is near when the signs appear.
According to the verse, Christ says: “And there will be signs in Sun and Moon and stars, and on the Earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”
Facebook user Diana Harris attempted to break the super blue blood moon down for modern times.
She wrote: “Last Days, Last Supper (Super) Blood Moon (Jesus Blood), Blue/ Red ( Republican /Democrates Division). Riddles continue as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse continue Ridin High”.
And user Gisela Gautier wrote: “Interesting… And there will be signs in the sky…”
Wesley Baines of Christian site belief.net said: “Whatever the case, when the sky darkens and the stars disappear and the moon becomes red as blood, you will know that Christ is near.”
Despite the name, a Blue Moon is actually white, but it is a total eclipse that involves the second full moon in a month.
The first full moon has taken place in the first few days of 2018, and will also be the biggest supermoon of the year.
So rare is a Blue Moon that the phenomenon has not occurred for more than 150 years since 1866.
The moon will also take on an red eerie glow because it coincides with a total lunar eclipse across America.
During a total lunar eclipse, the moon is sometimes known as a Blood Moon because of the way the atmosphere bends the light.
Both combined make it a super blue blood moon.
