Blood Moon in the Bible

When earth completely blocks sunlight from reaching the moon, in result moon becomes eclipse and reddish in color. This red color is due to the only light reflected from the lunar surface that has been refracted by the earth’s atmosphere. The Bible’s most important prophetic book is Revelation. This book actually unlocks large portions of the Bible’s other prophecies regarding “blood moons.”

 “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.” Revelation 6:11-13

Blood moon Prophecy

This prophecy is a set of apocalyptic beliefs which covers tetrad, a series of four consecutive or back to back lunar eclipses.

The prophecy states that a tetrad coinciding on Jewish holidays with six full moons in between and no intervening partial lunar eclipses is a sign of the beginning of the end of times. The concept was promoted by Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz.

When four lunar eclipses in the tetrad took place

The first eclipse in the tetrad took place on April 15, 2014. Subsequent “blood moon” eclipses in the tetrad are those of October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015. On July 27, 2015, the Blood Moon peaked in the night skies during the total lunar eclipse. The astronomical event marks the second total lunar eclipse and blood moon of the year. The last blood moon appeared in the skies on January 31, 2018, during the rare Super Blue Blood Moon spectacle.

Theories related to RED MOON according to Bible

The prophecy about the beginning of the end times is also described in the Bible in the Book Of Joel, Act 2:20, and also in Revelation 6:12. The concept of Blood Moon serving as a signal or forewarning of the coming of the end times as mentioned in the Book of Joel.

“The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”

Again the phrase is mentioned by Saint Peter during Pentecost, as recorded in Acts, although Peter says that the date of Pentecost, not some future date, was the fulfillment of Joel’s prophecy. The Blood Moon is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

“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”. Revelation 6: 11-13

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Mathew 24:29

Jesus said the moon would be turned into the blood immediately after the Great Tribulation. He also stated that the people of the earth would mourn when they saw the Son of man coming. This is obviously referring to the time of the Second Coming as described in the Sixth Seal.

If we look at the Joel and Isaiah keenly we can notice that the uncontrollable nature expresses its wrath

“The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining.” Joel 2:10

“And I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. Joel 2:30-31

“For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be dark at its rising, and the moon will not shed its light” Isaiah 13:10

“Then the moon will be confounded and the sun ashamed, for the Lord of hosts reigns on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and his glory will be before his elders.” Isaiah 24:23

“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves…” Luke 21:25

It is mostly clear that when the moon turns red as blood it is followed by a grave reckoning. Interestingly, all these passages also mention the sun turning to darkness before that reckoning, likely a description of a total solar eclipse. As a result, it becomes obvious that solar and lunar eclipse indicate the ending of this universe. Its strong energy and potential for unpredicted incidents and situations, some of them related to accidents, or interior anger, make many people think it’s a bad influence. This happens even in the spiritual world. It represents and rebirth or a Zest of energy (which is usually related to the proximity of the end of a cycle). It’s normal to feel fear and resistance, but it’s an attitude of trusting and confidence that will bring the best results.

Paying Attention to the Moon and the Stars

Christians are not allowed to believe, practice, or put their faith in astrology. It is compared to idol worship. However, in the Bible there are a few incidents where stars are used as the signs of the heavens and for sending messages to mankind.

God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:” God specifically said, “Let them be for signs.” Genesis 1:14,

It is also described that the wise men were led to Jesus by a star. This is recorded in Matthew 2:1-2, “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, ‘Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.’

More Interpretations

A few scholars also say that if we believe in the Bible prophecy and regarding it as a warning and also monitor astrological incidents such as the Blood Moon. Also, when we can keenly observe the moon, beyond its dust and craters, it looks as a transparent mother womb and the image of the baby looks quite clear which refers to the rebirth of ourselves (human) a new beginning, with new zeal and zest and get ready for the better human being before it’s too late and the end time calls. Blood moon and lunar eclipse represent a turning point for humankind.
