Friday’s Black Moon could bring with it worldwide destruction and the second coming of Jesus Christ according to religious leaders and conspiracy theorists.
On Friday September 30, a rare Black Moon will appear, which have many believing to be the beginning of the apocalypse.
The amazing Black Moon happens when the illuminated side of the moon is caught in the shadow of the Earth, making it almost impossible to see.
This astronomical phenomenon happens around every 32 months, but this particular Black Moon holds special significance because of other universal activity this month.
On the first day of September, there occurred a ‘ring of fire’ solar eclipse – when the moon comes in line with the Earth and sun above Africa making it seem as if the sun had darkened.
This along with the Black Moon has many people fearing an upcoming apocalypse.
One conspiracy theorist wrote today on Facebook, “Those signs are letting us know that Jesus is coming soon. We are approaching the end of our world and the end of life on Earth for all human beings. Every day we have to come closer to our savior Jesus Christ, for none can escape what is coming for our Earth.”
Another wrote, “The Lord will make the moon turn red like blood.. and turn black. Sound familiar?”
When this rare double phenomenon is linked to the Biblical scriptures, it can make for terrifying reading for Christians and conspiracy theorists alike.
According to the website Signs of The End Times, The Book of Matthew, chapter 24-29, reads: “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 shaken.”
In Luke 21:25-26, the Bible says: “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.”
Though, scientists say there is nothing to fear, and that the Earth will carry on as normal during and after the Black Moon appearance.
The Black Moon will be most easily visible in the Western Hemisphere, over North and South America, with most western portions of Europe seeing it too.
It is predicted to reach its peak at 8:11 Eastern Time – where it will be most visible in the US – or 1:11 Saturday morning in the UK.
