Doomsday fear mongers insist that Friday’s event is not just another natural astronomical event….
The Inquisitr reports:
According to the predictions of doom by end-time preachers, the Black Moon event on Friday, September 30, will bring about the apocalypse and global destruction.
But according to the astronomy website Accuweather, a Black Moon refers to the second new moon in a calendar month. It is a natural but rare lunar astronomical event that occurred last in March 2014 and occurs once every two and a half years or approximately 32 months.
In contrast, the term Blue Moon refers to the second full Moon in a calendar month.
During a Black Moon event, the Earth’s only natural satellite is completely invisible in the sky because the side facing the Earth is obscured completely in the shadows, away from sunlight.
But in the case of a Blue Moon, the side facing the Earth is bathed in light from the Sun.
However, doomsday fear mongers insist that Friday’s event is not just another natural astronomical event, as scientists think, but an event predicted by Jesus in the New Testament scriptures as a sign of the end of the world that comes after the fulfillment of the “ring of fire eclipse” prophecy that the Sun will go dark.
The website Signs of the End Times quotes the Gospel of Matthew 24:29.
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.”
The Gospel of Luke 21: 25-26 also talks about ominous signs in the heavens before the second coming of Jesus.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and looking after those things which are coming on the earth.”
According to conspiracy theorists, the first part of the Matthew prophecy that says the “Sun will be darkened,” was fulfilled on September 1, 2016, when the “ring of fire” solar eclipse occurred
The “ring of fire” solar eclipse, which caused the Sun to be darkened over Africa, was caused by the Moon blocking sunlight from reaching the Earth.
The second part of the Matthew prophecy, which says that the “Moon shall not give her light,” will be fulfilled on Friday when the Black Moon event occurs, conspiracy theorists claim.
Conspiracy theorists also quote Acts 2:20.
“The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.”
The first part of the Book of Acts prophecy that says the “Sun will be turned to darkness,” according to doomsday conspiracy theorists, was fulfilled on September 1, 2016, while the second part of the prophecy that says the Moon will be turned to blood was fulfilled earlier in 2015.
