The forthcoming “super blood moon” eclipse, which will peak over the United States between Sunday and Monday nights, might signal the Second Coming of Christ, a pastor has claimed.
In a recent message posted on his YouTube channel, Pastor Paul Begley of West Lafayette, Indiana, argued that the blood moon — which occurs when Earth aligns to block the sun’s light from the moon — is a fulfillment of the end times prophecy.
“God is ready to show us that He is in control, and these are the last days,” the pastor charged, calling the lunar eclipse a “very significant sign, according to the Bible.”
Begley noted that the blood moon will pass over Washington, D.C. on the second anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Additionally, he said, Trump was born on a blood moon on June 14, 1946, exactly 700 days before Israel was declared a nation.
“Did President Trump just stumble into this situation?” Begley asked. “Well, he’s the president that decides to go ahead and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and then moves the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and dedicates it on May 14, 2018, the exact 70th anniversary of Israel as a nation.”
“Is this a sign? Is this a harbinger for America?” Begley asked. “It seems like the prophetic scriptures of the Bible are starting to play out right on the world stage, right before our very eyes.”
Jesus, the pastor said, “wants to be sure we understand that in the last days there will be signs in the sun, the moon, the stars and of course the stress of nations on the planet.”
He went on to highlight the unrest seen across the world: “Look what’s going on in Europe as the protesting is breaking out … not only in France, it’s now spread into the Netherlands, into Belgium,” he said. “It got very ugly, it’s getting dangerous in Germany, they’re starting in Italy. And even in Canada, and so we begin to see this unrest in the European nations.
“We’ve already seen the Middle East in a state of madness for seven years, and now Israel is being surrounded by the very nations that Ezekiel 38 says is going to surround Israel,” he continued.
Washington, D.C., too, is in a “state of political turmoil and anguish,” the pastor said, adding: “God is sending a message.”
