Are There End Times Biblical Prophecies About The Blood Moon?

A Blood moon is getting skywatchers excited as it is set to be the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century – but does it signify a particular prophecy or spiritual meaning?

Fans eager for another dazzling celestial display following January’s Super Blue Blood Moon will be delighted if they look up at the night sky on July 27.

Lunar eclipses cast a reddish glow on the moon due to the way light is refracted around the earth’s atmosphere as it briefly comes between the sun and the moon.

Despite the astronomical event being a regular occurrence throughout history, many cultures and religions have tried to attribute blood moons as signs of impending catastrophe.

Does a blood moon have a prophecy? Spiritual meaning explained
Blood moons have long been associated with end of times prophecies, with Christian theorists pointing to two key entries in the Bible.

Does a blood moon have a prophecy? Spiritual meaning explained
Blood moons have long been associated with end of times prophecies, with Christian theorists pointing to two key entries in the Bible.

The first, Joel 2:30-31, says: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”

The blood moon is also featured in the Book of Revelations in passage 6:12, which states: “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.”

Modern-day conspiracy theorists have previously suggested four lunar eclipses in succession between 2014 and 2015 – a pattern supposedly prophesied in the Bible as a tetrad – heralded the end of the world.

Clearly, as we are all still here, we now know that theory was wrong.

What about other cultures?
Religion aside, lunar eclipses have been hailed as dangerous in other ancient cultures.

Inca researcher David Dearborn told National Geographic: “The Inca didn’t see eclipses as being anything at all good.”

The Incas, who dominated parts of South America in the mid-15th to 16th century, believed a jaguar would eat the moon during lunar eclipses.

Frightened natives believed the predator would then come down to earth and devour them once it was done with eating the moon.

Wild animals taking a chunk out of the moon may sound far-fetched but a similar belief has also endured in some Chinese cultures.

What time is the Blood Moon?
July’s lunar eclipse is the longest one of the 21st century, measuring 103 minutes.

The UK will have a good chance of seeing it with the partial eclipse beginning at 7.24pm BST on Friday, July 27.

The eclipse’s peak will take place at 9.22pm, with the total eclipse being viewable between 8.30pm and 10.13pm.

The partial eclipse will finish at 11.19pm, giving people almost four hours of solid moon-gazing time.

Unfortunately, stargazers in the US will miss out this time around.
