LONDON (Web Desk) – A rare astrological event later this month could herald the end of days, according to a pastor.
The fourth lunar eclipse in just two years, known as a ‘tetrad’, will take place on September 28, and each one has taken place on Jewish holy days, reported Mail Online.
The eclipses make the moon appear red – hence the name ‘blood moon’ – and the fourth and final in this tetrad will be a supermoon, making it appear larger.
Some Christians believe the celestial event could mark the start of terrible events, based on a passage from the Bible that says: ‘The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes.’
Their fears are not helped by the fact that each of the four blood moons in this tetrad have fallen on April 14, 2014 (Passover), October 8, 2014 (Feast of the Tabernacle), April 4, 2015 (Passover) and September 28, the first day of this year’s Feast of the Tabernacle.
According to those preparing for the apocalypse, this could be a sign of the Old Testament prophecy predicting the end of the world, the New York Post reported.
