The supposed end times sign will arrive in the form of a rare Blue Moon on October 31. And although Blue Moons are a perfectly natural phenomenon, this one will arrive just three days before the US Presidential election. The eerie coincidence has left some US evangelists believing it is a prophetic sign from the heavens.
In particular, Pastor Paul Begley from West Lafayette in Indiana has stoked end of the world fears, by dubbing the Moon an “omen of prophetic revelation”.
Pastor Begley is the host of The Coming Apocalypse, a weekly show broadcast on some US TV channels.
He also runs a popular YouTube channel where he draws strenuous links between modern-day events and their supposed Biblical analogues.
In a recent video shared with his more than 339,000 subscribers, the preacher warned of what is yet to come this year.
He said: “God will answer Jerusalem’s cry, there’s no doubt about that.
“The peace deal, the Abraham Accords has been signed, there’s more nations that are jumping in – it’s quite an extraordinary time in Biblical prophecy.
“And also we’re coming up on the elections, the greatest and probably most important election in the history of this nation and will affect the world.
“And I can tell you it’s crazy. We have Halloween coming up that happens to be a Blue Moon, an omen of prophetic revelation.
“We’re going to wait and see what it is. The Lord, of course, set that in motion.”
But the prophetic doom-mongering does not end there as Pastor Begley believes many more signs will appear before the end of the year.
He said: “There’s a lot going on, and don’t forget December 21, 2020 – don’t worry that it’s my 59th birthday, that’s not what I’m talking about, no, no, no.
“The Mayan elders are saying this could be the end of the world, they think they might have missed it by eight years.
“No, no, no. It’s the grand conjunction when Saturn and Jupiter come within 0.01 degree of each other so that it will create the largest star, the brightest star since the birth of Jesus Christ so many years ago.”
Could this be another sign from the heavens about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ?
Pastor Begley believes this is the real deal as the planets will not come this close together in our night skies for another 500 years.
The firebrand preacher said: “This is a sign of biblical proportions.
“It is also the Winter Solstice and it’s everything happening.
“The great conjunction of 2020, how important is this day? It’s unbelievably important, I’m going to tell you that right now.”
However, there is no tangible evidence to support claims astronomical phenomena and elections are in any way biblical – both have been happening for thousands of years.
And the Bible is also very clear about this: no one will know when the end times will come.
Jesus Christ said in Matthew 24: “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
