Rare Lunar Event This Month

A Blue Moon, a total lunar eclipse and a Super moon all in the same month!

    A Blue Moon is when two full moons happen in the same calendar month; lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow; and Supermoons happen when the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth in a single orbit — coincides with a full moon.
     In this case, the supermoon also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse. The lunar eclipse will occur on the night of Jan. 31 or the morning of Feb. 1. And the Supermoon will take place on the night of Jan. 30, which is technically one day before the moon reaches peak fullness, but even NASA is willing to call the event a Supermoon nonetheless. Full details are available at Spacedotcom. Be sure to check it out.

      Note: Back in August, 2015, a self-appointed “prophet” predicted the alignment of the Blue Moon with the upcoming Blood Moon was a message from God that the world as we know it would end in September. 
    Pastor Paul Begley took to YouTube to warn of the significance of the rare Blue Moon. He and his fellow “prophets” Mark Blitz and John Hagee had been warning for months that the date of the last of four blood moons over the previous 18 months that was due to occur on September 28, and following a papal visit to the US, would signal the second coming of Jesus Christ, before Armageddon. They predicted the world as we know it will be destroyed by major earthquakes amid heightened tensions in the Middle East and the possibility of a Third World War.
     The event generated a best selling book by Hagee and was the topic of endless articles in Charisma Magazine, televangelists and heretics like Jim Bakker who sold tons of his survival slop and solar powered electrical generators so people could survive.
     After the Four Blood Moons prophecy didn’t come to pass, these guys turned their prophetic attention to the upcoming super moon. Charisma Magazine claimed that the December 3 super moon had prophetic significance, blah, blah, blah. 
     Begley and the others' prophecies didn't come true in 2015, but no matter, Begley is back at it on Youtube warning people again.
     Astrology and other occult practices aren't Biblical and, in fact, they are explicitly forbidden in Deuteronomy 18:10-14. Predictable astronomical events like lunar and solar eclipses likely don’t mean anything. These preachers and their followers can't tell the difference between what's occult and what's not.
     The Bible is full of condemnation of false prophets. Read, as just one example, Ezekiel Chapter 13. In fact, false prophets were to be put to death (Deuteronomy 18:20). While I am not living under the Law of Moses and don't believe that men like Begley, Hagee and others of their ilk should be put to death, I believe the Biblical admonition that if a prophet's prophecies doesn't come true then he should be ignored.
     So, if you read anything from the likes of these guys, I think it's best to just ignore it because they have proven themselves to be false prophets.
