On September 28, there will be a Blood Moon and yes, doomsday prophecies too.

What is interesting about a Blood Moon is that it is always tied in religion and mysticism. Prophets and mystics are convinced that the end of the world might happen once the Blood Moon appears.

Once again, people are taking a second look for better interpretations of certain biblical passages like in the book of Revelations. Take for example, 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.”

Mark Blitz and Christian Hagee, both Christian ministers, noted that four lunar eclipses starting April 2014 with six full moons could be a warning that the world is coming to an end.

Another passage in the Book of Joel informed people that the moon will turn into blood before the judgment day.

But what is a blood moon?

There will be a supermoon this month and it coincides with the lunar eclipse. This means the moon will pass the Earth’s shadow and as a result, the moon appears red.

This month’s supermoon lunar eclipse will mark the last part of the lunar tetrad. Lunar tetrad is a cycle of four lunar eclipses that happens every six months. It started in April 2014 and the last lunar eclipse happened in April 2015, which lasted five minutes.

Bible interpreters saw the connection between the tetrad and some important events in history.

"The last time there was a tetrad was back in the 1900s, and to my amazement, they also fell on the feasts of Passover and Tabernacles," Blitz observed.

He explained, “the last two times there were four blood moons in a row, they happened, first, right after Israel became a nation in 1948, and then again when Israel retook Jerusalem in 1967."
