The lunar phenomenon known as a super blood wolf moon eclipse will be visible over North and South America and western parts of Europe and Africa on January 21.
The total lunar eclipse, which will be visible from the United States for the first time in three years, will happen as the Earth is positioned directly between the sun and the moon.
The Earth will cast its shadow on the moon, and give it a blood-orange colour.
Because the moon will be at its closest point to Earth, the moon will look even bigger and much brighter, meaning it will also be known as a super moon.
While its additional status as a wolf moon may sound ominous, the term is just another name for the first full moon of the year – which just happens to occur simultaneously with the other lunar events in 2019.
While stargazers enjoy the dazzling phenomenon, one Christian preacher will be preparing for the end of the world.
According to Evangelical pastor Paul Begley from West Lafayette, Indiana, the blood moon’s arrival coincides with the second anniversary of President Donald Trump being sworn into office.
Pastor Begley firmly believes the timing is no coincidence, rather an evident sign of biblical prophecy coming to fruition.
The doomsday preacher 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.”
Daily Star Online previously revealed many biblical conspiracists believe this passage, and an identical one found in the Book of Acts 2:20-21, references the end of the world and the Second Coming of Christ.
The Book of Acts 2:20-21 reads: “The Sun will be turned into darkness and the Moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Another mention of the Blood Moon in Christian scripture can be found in the Book of Revelation, where the Moon “became as blood” during the end days.
Pastor Begley wholeheartedly believes the forthcoming Blood Moon eclipse and the many that preceded it were all foretold by the Bible.
He said: “I’m not saying on January 22 all hell’s going to break loose, right after the Blood Moon, and then again I’m not saying it won’t.
“I truly believe America is going to face some type of disaster and that this Super Blood Moon is a serious harbinger of these last days.
“I pray blessings over America but there is something about to happen and it will be not only prophetically revealed but it will be historically captured.
“I’m not saying it’s going to happen on that very day of January 20 and January 21, but I think that somewhere shortly before or after we will see a significant development – something that will be major in its magnitude and impact upon this nation.
“Could it be economically? Maybe. Could it be militarily? Maybe. Could it be a natural disaster or an apocalyptic event? Maybe.
“But whatever it is – earthquake, a great one? Maybe. But whatever it is, it’s a harbinger and here comes the Super Blood Moon harbinger for America.”
“It’s no coincidence ”
The warning about the rapture is the latest prophecy about the arrival of the apocalypse.
The predictions conflict other end of the world forecasts, including that of serial predictor David Meade – who said April 23 would mark the apocalypse.
He said a mythological planetary system known as Planet X or Nibiru would appear in the sky on that date.
And earlier this week, Daily Star Online revealed the Biblical passage that points to 2019 being the year the rapture begins.
While people of different faiths believe that there will be some religious end to life on Earth, they disagree about how it will happen.
Scientists have several theories about when Earth will be destroyed, although none of the data points to this Monday.
The most widely accepted theory is that the Sun, which is already gradually increasing in temperature, will expand and swallow up the planet.
Some scientists believe this could happen as soon as 7.6billion years’ time.
