Blood Moon Prophecy: Christians Predict End Of The World On Lunar Eclipse

A prophecy regarding the upcoming Blood Moon predicts the end of the world sometime between September 21 to September 28.
Mirror UK reports there have been speculations spreading around Christian fundamentalists, self-proclaimed prophets and Jewish mystics regarding the Doomsday happening at the night when the Blood Moon occurs.
Biblical interpretations have sprouted about the earth's rapture, citing references from different books, chapters and verses. As written in Revelations 6:12, "There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red."
The signs of the end of times also appeared in the Book of Acts 2:20, saying, "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
According to Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Blitz, these verses refer to the continuing "tetrad" -the four consecutive lunar eclipses with six full moons in between. This phenomenon, which he said had previously occurred, started in April 2014.
"The last time there was a tetrad was back in the 1900s, and to my amazement, they also fell on the feasts of Passover and Tabernacles," Blitz explained. "When I noticed the years these phenomena occurred, my mind began reeling. The last two times there were four blood moons in a row, they happened, first, right after Israel became a nation in 1948, and then again when Israel retook Jerusalem in 1967."
This prediction was also prophesied by Rev. Efrain Rodriguez, who wrote a letter to NASA to warn about an asteroid striking Puerto Rico. According to the reverend's vision, a massive asteroid was "entering the airspace of the town of Arecibo in Puerto Rico, striking the sea between the island of Mona and Mayaguez and triggering a magnitude 12 earthquake."
But according to science, there hasn't been any sign of an asteroid hitting the earth in the near future. "There is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth," said Paul Chodas from NASA's Near-Earth Object Office. "In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century. There is no scientific basis, not one shred of evidence, that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates."
The Blood Moon spectacle is set to appear at the night sky from the evening of September 27 to September 28.
