The total lunar eclipse Blood Moon will grace the starlit skies on the morning of January 21, 2019, UK time. The Blood Moon will be visible over the Western Hemisphere and predominantly pass over the United States, including the capital Washington DC. The eclipse comes just seven months after a Blood Moon peaked in the night skies of July 27, 2018. Blood Moons typically occur once or twice a year when the Moon passes through Earth’s shadow but conspiracy theorists and doomsday preacher fear it is a sinister warning of biblical prophecy.
According to Evangelical pastor Paul Begley from West Lafayette, Indiana, the Blood Moon’s arrival coincides with the second anniversary of President Donald Trump being sworn into office.
Pastor Begley firmly believes the timing is no coincidence, rather an evident sign of biblical prophecy coming to fruition.
The doomsday preacher said: “I believe it is a Super Blood Moon harbinger.
“The Bible tells us in the Book of Joel of how important a Blood Moon is.”

The passage in question, Joel 2:30-31, speaks of the Moon turning into blood and darkness engulfing the world.
Many biblical conspiracists believe this passage, and an identical one found in the Book of Acts 2:20-21, references the and of the world and the Second Coming of Christ.
The Book of Acts 2:20-21 reads: “The Sun will be turned into darkness and the Moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Another mention of the Blood Moon in Christian scripture can be found in the Book of Revelation, where the Moon “became as blood” during the end days.
Pastor Begley wholeheartedly believes the upcoming Blood Moon eclipse and the many which preceded it were all foretold by the Bible.
He said: “I’m not saying on January 22 all hell’s going to break loose, right after the Blood Moon, and then again I’m not saying it won’t.
“I truly believe America is going to face some type of disaster and that this Super Blood Moon is a serious harbinger of these last days.

“I pray blessings over America but there is something about to happen and it will be not only prophetically revealed but it will be historically captured.
“I’m not saying it’s going to happen on that very day of January 20 and January 21, but I think that somewhere shortly before or after we will see a significant development – something that will be major in its magnitude and impact upon this nation.
“Could it be economically? Maybe. Could it be militarily? Maybe. Could it be a natural disaster or an apocalyptic event? Maybe.
“But whatever it is – earthquake, a great one? Maybe. But whatever it is, it’s a harbinger and here comes the Super Blood Moon harbinger for America.”
