The Blood Moon will pass over the United States for one hour between January 20 and January 21. The date of the eclipse coincides with the second anniversary of President Donald Trump being inaugurated into office. Evangelical preacher Paul Begley, from West Lafayette in Indiana has now warned the date is no coincidence. Instead, the doomsday preacher claimed the Blood Moon is a prophetic sign of biblical scripture being fulfilled.
But pastor Begley also revealed President Trump’s supposed connections to the apocalypse and the Blood Moon do not end there.
The firebrand preacher said: “We’re seven days away from this Blood Moon over Washington DC and it’s not just any ordinary Blood Moon, it’s a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon.
“The fact that it’ll be right at the middle of Trump’s presidency, right at the halfway point?
“This Blood Moon starts at 11.41pm on January 20 and goes into the midnight hour and lasts for 62 minutes till 12.43am on Monday morning.
“What an incredible thing and you know Trump is already a Blood Moon President because he was born on a Blood Moon. What do you think about that one?
“June 14, 1946, – President Trump was born on a Blood Moon 700 days before Israel became a nation.
“And he just so happens to be the very President who decides to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel during the 70th year anniversary of Israel as a nation.”
A total lunar eclipse of the Moon did indeed occur on the night of June 14, 1946.
EXCLUSIVE: Is the Super Blood Moon a portent of DOOM?
On the night of President Trump’s birth, the Blood Moon eclipse was seen over South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The Blood Moon was followed by a second total eclipse that same year on December 8.
Blood Moons are considered bad omens in both the Old and New Testament and there are least three mentions in the Christian Bible.
The Moon turning into blood or becoming red is mentioned in the Book of Acts, Book of Joel and Book of revelation.
Each of the three Blood Moon passages describe a terrifying time of natural catastrophe, cataclysm and the Second Coming of Christ.
The Book of Revelation reads: “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;
“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.
“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.”
With the prophecy in mind and the appearing signs in the heavens, pastor Begley said the “prophetic scriptures of the Bible are playing out.”
Astronomers, however, disagree the Blood Moon is a prophetic sign and instead argue it is a perfectly natural spectacle of nature.
According to US space agency NASA, the Blood Moon eclipse is the result of scattered sunlight in the Earth’s shadow filtering out blue bands of light.
The remaining red wavelengths on the visible spectrum paint the Full Moon a majestic crimson colour.
