Dooms day preachers have claimed that the “Blood” moon will ignite the skies of Britain, resulting in a disastrous doom to the world.
According to the prophecies made by Bible, a catastrophic event will shake the entire planet earth, this will be the time when the stargazers will experience the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century.
The blood moon prophecy can be found in the Chinese Bible which suggests the end of the world with its arrival.
With reference of Bible in Acts 2:20 and revelation 6:12, the Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz were the first ones to create the above mentioned theory, claiming that four consecutive lunar eclipses, which they called “tetrad” will be one of the many signs of the end of the world.
The Christian ministers also referred to the book of Joel, that reads:
“The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”
A similar kind of passage can be seen in the book of Revelations, that says:
“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.”
On the other hand, astronomers have rejected the theory.
From the mid-1980s, the end time ministries, Irvin Baxter made countless false predictions relating the ‘end of the world’, referring to the Book of Joel as its evidence.
He stated: “The Bible teaches that end event is coming just ahead of us now and that will be the greatest prophetic fulfilment in the last 2,000 years.”
Blood Moon also warned saying:
“The sun will turn into darkness, the moon into blood”
The total eclipse is said to last one hour and 43 minutes, when the moon will hide behind the Earth and its shadow.
The orange glow of the moon Rayleigh scattering of the sunlight passing the earth’s atmosphere, which is also the reason behind the red moon during sunsets.
The locations where the eclipse will be visible are, Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Australia, and most parts of Asia and south America.
Professor Tim O’Brien, who is an astrophysicist at the University of Manchester said:
“This is actually almost as long as a lunar eclipse could be.
