Christian minister says there will be no asteroid hit on Earth on “blood moon,” instead big earthquake will shake land

Blood Moon
The moon is pictured behind a ferris wheel on the pier in Santa Monica, California after a total lunar eclipse, also known as a "blood moon", October 8, 2014. The coppery, reddish color the moon takes is made as it passes into Earth's shadow. The total eclipse is the second of four over a two-year period that began April 15 and concludes on September 28, 2015.

With the “blood moon” or total lunar eclipse expected to occur on Sept 28, the debate if the apocalyptic predictions that it is the end of the world would happen is once more resurrected barely three years after the Mayan calendar did.

On one hand, NASA had issued a statement that the blood moon would not result in any asteroid hitting the Earth. On the other hand, a scientist from the University of Central Lancashire, Professor Robert Walsh, warned not to ignore the asteroid threat because if one hits a heavily populated area, hundreds of people would be hurt.

Mark Blitz, leader of the El Shaddai Ministries in Washington, agrees with NASA that there would not be an asteroid hit since the indicators of the end times are earthquakes which, he points out, have doubled in the last 10 years.

In March 2011, Japan was hit by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake that triggered a tsunami and destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. On Thursday, Sept 17, a magnitude 8.3 shook Chile, killed at least five people and caused one million people to evacuate coastal towns as the tsunami flooded the areas.

Blitz has authored the bestseller “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs” that his followers consider modern prophecy. With the increase in earthquake magnitude, along with another sign, Blitz says those are indicators that “we are at the door,” reports The New York Daily Post.

Citing a verse in the Revelations, the last book of the Christian Bible, Blitz quotes the prophecy written by John, the author of the fourth Gospel, “And I beheld when he opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood …”

Another blood moon author, John Hagee, who wrote “Four Blood Moon,” says “The heavens are God’s billboard.” The founder and senior pastor of the Cornerstone megachurch in San Antonio, Texas, Hagee points to two blood moons in 2014 and 2015 which he said are God’s signals to Earth that people have not been picking up.

Meanwhile, one church whose members appears to be preparing for the end times in the Church of the Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, more known as the Mormon church. Although elders of the church distance themselves from Julie Rowe who wrote several books on the blood moon, many fear a major tremor would hit Utah on the eve of the blood moon, while many prepare emergency supplies ready if the prophesy would fulfill on Sept 28.
