The January 20 to January 21 Blood Moon eclipse falls exactly 355 days after the Super Blue Blood Moon of 2018 – 10 days short of a full year. The Blood Moon eclipse is widely considered by Christian conspiracists a sinister portent of doom. And the number 10 has foreboding importance in the Bible, with the digit linked throughout the Holy Book to passages of destruction. In the Old Testament, exactly 10 generations of mankind have lived upon the Earth before God’s wrath washed them away in a great flood.
God said in Genesis 6:5-8: “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
Then, Egypt was punished by God with 10 deadly plagues for the plight of the Jewish people living in slavery under the Pharaoh.
Exodus 6:6-7 reads: “I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
“I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment.”

Devout Jews who celebrate their freedom from slavery on the holiday of Passover traditionally would slaughter the Passover lamb on the 10th day of the celebration.
And the Day of Atonement Yom Kippur, the holiest of Jewish holidays, is observed on the 10th day of the seventh month of Tishrei in the Hebrew calendar.
The number 10 reappears during Israel’s escape from slavery when God handed his 10 Commandments to Moses.
Exodus 20:20-21 reads: “Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning’.”
Then in the New Testament, the Beast of Revelation is revealed to have 10 horns upon its heads and wears 10 diadems.
In Revelation 13:1, the prophet John describes the Beast rising out of the sea with seven heads “in the name of blasphemy”.

The biblical scripture reads: “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Eclipse 2019: A Blood Moon is described in the Bible’s Book of Revelation
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Revelation 17 then describes the 10 horns on the Beast’s head as symbols of 10 kings who have no kingdoms of their own but draw power from the Beast.
And the Moon turning “into blood” is mentioned in the very same book, leading conspiracists to link the Blood Moon to the end of the world.
Paul Begley, an evangelical preacher from West Lafayette in Indiana, US, is one of the doomsday preachers who believe the Blood Moon is a sign of doom.
According to the firebrand preacher, the January Blood Moon eclipse is a definite “harbinger of the apocalypse” and a sign of revelation from God.
Pastor Begley 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 January eclipse comes 178 days after the last Blood Moon on July 27, 2018.
The Blood Moon will be the last of its kind until May 26, 2021, leading many to believe in its supposedly apocalyptic arrival.
