Evangelical preacher Paul Begley is certain President Donald Trump holds the key to the January eclipse. The upcoming Super Blood Moon eclipse will pass over the nightside of Earth between January 20 and January 21. In an astonishing coincidence, the Blood Moon will arrive on the second anniversary of President Donald Trump being sworn into office. But the Blood Moon connections do not stop there, because pastor Begley believes Mr Trump is “the Blood Moon President”.
The firebrand preacher said: “This Super Blood Moon that’s going to happen in 10 days is a harbinger, it is a warning.
“It happens to be on the second anniversary of Trump as President of the United States, which is so unbelievable, and it will be right over Washington.
“This Blood Moon is also a big Blood Moon – it’s going to be super because it’s close to Earth.
“It’s going to be blood-red and it’s the first Moon of the year, so it’s a Wolf Moon.
“A Super Blood Wolf Moon on the second anniversary of Trump’s presidency? Oh, and by the way, Donald Trump is the Blood Moon President.”
According to pastor Begley, President Trump was born on the night of a Blood Moon on June 14, 1946.
A total lunar eclipse of the Moon did indeed pass over the Earth between the nights of June 14 and June 15, 72 years ago.
The Blood Moon eclipse was seen over much of Central Asia, Australia and parts of Western Africa.
The eclipse was not visible from New York, US, where President Trump was born.
But the day of President Trump’s birth is even more significant because it took place 700 days before Israel was reborn as a nation on May 14, 1948.
Pastor Begley said: “It just so happens this Blood Moon President is the one who declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel and moved the US embassy to Jerusalem and dedicated it on that 70th anniversary date in Jerusalem.
“Just a couple of months later on July 27 of 2018, there was a Blood Moon.
“It was the longest Blood Moon of the century right over Jerusalem and now after the birth of the Red Heifer, which would be used to dedicate the Third Temple, took place a month later, and after the Sanhedrin have dedicated the stone alter which will be in the Third Temple now is Washington’s turn.
“The connection between the Americans and the Israelis is absolutely well documented but this is an impeding harbinger.
“America prepare yourself. I don’t know what’s coming. The swamp is getting very, very, very, very precarious.”
Pastor Begley and his contemporary Biblical conspiracists believe the upcoming Blood Moon was foretold by the Bible’s Book of Revelation, Book of Joel and Book of Acts.
The Book of Revelation reads in chapter six: “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.”
Astronomers, however, agree the Blood Moon is a perfectly natural phenomenon which occurs once or twice a year.
The Blood Moon is the result of retracted sunlight falling onto an eclipsed Moon obscured by the Earth’s shadow – an effect known as Rayleigh Scattering.
