‘End of days’ theory fueled by rare Blood Red Moon Tuesday night

NEW YORK (PIX11) — You probably didn’t notice it but Mars, the Earth and the sun all aligned Tuesday night.

The rare event, called the opposition of Mars, took place a week before sky watchers on Earth will be treated to the first of four consecutive lunar eclipses – the first occurring on April 14.

What’s so special about this?  These astronomical  events will bring four so-called “Blood Red Moons,” something astrologers call momentous.

The four red moons, according to Christian extremists,  are a foreshadowing of the “end of days” and the second coming of Christ.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the lord comes,” [Joel 2:31] reads a passage from the King James bible.

‘End of Days’ theory fueled by rare astrological event Tuesday night

The opposition of Mars, the event where Mars, Earth and the sun all align, happened on Tuesday night — a week before the first of four so-called “Blood Red Moons” will emerge in the sky.

Planet alignments, lunar eclipses, biblical passages – they’re all elements linked to apocalyptic events that we have all heard before.

But in this case, the accompanied four “blood red” moons – which will start next Tuesday and end in September of 2015, has only occurred three times in the past 500 years.

According to historians, each time it happened it coincided with a globally significant religious event.

It was in 1493 during the expulsion of Jews by the Spanish Inquisition where the first occurred. The second occurred simultaneously with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1949, while the third happened less than 20 years later in 1967 where it coincided with the six day Arab-Israeli war.

While some are already counting down the days, others maintain that it’s all just an astronomical coincidence.

    Your Facebook post on this article called Christians Extremists…

    Holy crap.. your calling Christians that believe this to be a SIGN of the coming rapture extremists.. I am agnostic, I am tired of the media and your subtle knocks on people that think differently than you.. Quit the name calling crap and be journalists, stick the to the damn facts and keep your opinions on people out of the headlines. Isn't that what journalists are supposed to do, talk about the facts and report the facts and keep opinion out of it?

    I agree with JayJay – easier would be the term "some Christians" as opposed to "extremists" utilized in this article. This though, as a Christian, is indicative of the indoctrination of separating Church, not just from government, but from all those they govern. We will see continued and concentrated efforts to demonize the Godly as being the root of social discord. An extreme Christian is one that would hi-jack a plane and fly it into the Temple Mount – now that would be extreme. But believing in scripture as it relates to prophecy is much more relative to the reader, but hardly an extreme view.

      Actually I wouldn’t call that extremism I’d call it poetic justice. But that aside it’s still a bit creepy
