And this is what Joel 2:31 says in the Modern English Version…
The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood,before the great and awe-inspiring day of the Lordcomes.
On the evening of the 20th of January, a very strange phenomenon will happen. A total lunar eclipse that has been dubbed a “super blood wolf moon” will appear in the sky above America. The entire eclipse from beginning to end will be visible from every single location in the continental United States, but much of the rest of the world will miss out on this experience completely. For example, the eclipse will not be visible at all anywhere in China. Some would argue that it is just a coincidence, but it is almost as if somebody arranged the timing of this “super blood wolf moon” so that it would be seen specifically by people living in the United States.
Of course some of you may have never even heard of a “super blood wolf moon”. Basically, what that term means is that a “super moon”, a “blood moon” and a “wolf moon” will all be happening simultaneously.
A “blood moon” happens during a lunar eclipse when some of the sun’s light is still able to reach the moon. The following comes from USA Today…
Although the moon is in Earth’s shadow, some sunlight still reaches the moon. The sunlight passes through Earth’s atmosphere, which causes our atmosphere to filter out most of the blue light.
Some sunlight reaches the Earth’s atmosphere, which envelops the moon and gives it the rich color.
A “super moon” happens when a full moon coincides with the moon’s orbit being within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth, and that can make the moon look much bigger and brighter than normal…
A super moon occurs when the full moon is at the closest point of its orbit to the Earth, which is also called the perigee.
That makes the moon look extra close and extra bright – up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than a full moon at its farthest point from Earth, known as the apogee, NASA said.
This will be the first lunar eclipse of 2019 and the last total lunar eclipse until 2021. It coincides with the year’s first full moon — a “wolf moon” in the folklore tradition because it occurs at a time of year when wolves howl outside villages — and comes when the moon is slightly bigger and brighter because it’s at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit.
Since it’s a so-called supermoon that’s being shadowed, some media outlets have dubbed this eclipse a “super blood wolf moon.”
In ancient times, a “blood moon” was considered to be a sign of impending doom, and some Christian leaders are pointing out that the Bible says that the moon will be an important “sign” during the times that the Bible refers to as “the last days”.
