To start, I want to first begin by saying that I have been a firm believer in all things in what people will call “Supernatural”. That being said I’m also a fan of the show (side information but still). However, when it comes to things we can see as different or bad, there’s always an omen to go along with it.
Tuesday, April 15th bright and early in the hours, a blood moon could be see for an hour here on Earth (around the world if you like). This photo is one I took from Twitter:
It stands out to say the least, especially because we also had a full moon on our hands. So lets start science for a minute before we get into the omen side of things. A blood moon is known as a lunar eclipse, which is when the Earth is between the the sun and the moon, this gives the hue onto the Moon to appear Red. A normal eclipse (solar) is when the moon passes or aligns with the Earth and the sun (thus why things go dark). However, this is just the first of four eclipses we can expect. Another will be seen in October and again during the same times next year. All of which fall in time with religious holidays.
As for the omens, a lot of them are Biblical references. So here they are:
- Then God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years…’” (Genesis 1:14).
- For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash forth their light;
The sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light. (Isaiah 13:10)
- The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood
Before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. ( Joel 2:31)
- I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; (Revelation 6:12)
So what does this all mean? Well if you read around on some of the news articles and the books that have been published on the subject, it’s clear this means that the Lord is going to be making a return. Take that as a good or bad sign if you want but that’s the whole meaning I was able to find. Howevever, another small article I read (I read several before finding this) stated that the blood moon can also be a sign of war to occur between those who have religious discord. Not exactly a specific thing but you can take into account any country that is having a dispute or has been for a long time.
Either way it’s an interesting read if you are curious like I was when it came to the blood moon and all of the lunar eclipses that are going to occur.
