The January Full Wolf Moon will turn red due to a rare alignment of the Moon, the Earth and the Sun. Conspiracy theorists, however, speculate the Blood Moon is a harbinger of the Apocalypse, as foretold by the Bible. Mention of the Moon “becoming as blood” is found in the Old Testament and the New Testament alike. A particular passage in the Book of Revelation speaks of the Moon turning red during the end times, when the Sun turns black and earthquakes ravage the Earth.
The prophetic passages about the apocalypse have led doomsday preachers around the globe to warn devout Christians an “event of biblical promotions” is brewing on the horizon.
Evangelical preacher Paul Begley from West Lafayette in Indiana, US, is a prominent supporter of the Blood Moon apocalypse theory.
