I don’t know what to make of all this, and sometimes I wonder if I am making more of it than I should.
But a strange thing happened during the “Super Blood Wolf Moon” that took place overnight on January 20 and 21, 2019. It was seen in the Western Hemisphere and parts of Europe.
It is referred to as a wolf moon because it took place in the Northern Hemisphere’s winter and as a super blood moon, because it happened at the point in the moon’s trajectory when it is at its closet point to the earth, resulting in the moon being 14% larger and appearing 30% brighter.
A blood moon takes place when the earth blocks the sun causing the suns rays to reflect through the earth’s atmosphere. The red appearance is similar to the red in the sunrise and sunsets we experience on earth.
In the Bible, blood moons were considered warning signs of the end times. But we need to realize that blood moons are a regular occurrence and not every blood moon is significant.
But in Biblical terms, blood moons become significant due to their association with other events that take place around the same time.
So along that line, an amateur photographer caught something rare and strange taking place during the Super Blood Wolf Moon that recently took place.
Jamie Cooper who lives in Whilton, Northhamptonshire, England, had hooked up his camera to a 2000mm telescope to take photographs of this blood moon and started snapping photos.
One of his shots showed the flash of a meteor or possible asteroid striking the moon. As Cooper pointed out, if he had snapped it a second later he would have missed it.
So what is so significant about that?
Because one Biblical blood moon is associated with asteroids hitting the earth. In the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John’s vision of the end times, the prophet spoke of a blood moon and three other events that would take place around the same time:
12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. (Revelation 6:12-14 NASV)
There would be a “great earthquake” that would literally shake the foundations of the earth moving mountains and even islands. Before we ask if that is even possible, we know that the massive 8.8 earthquake that hit Chile on March 2, 2010 was so powerful it actually affected the earth’s axis and shortened our days.
In addition to the earthquake, there will either be a possible eclipse of the sun or a massive volcanic explosion that will darken the sun, that the Prophet Joel mentions (Joel 2:30-31).

But along with the blood moon mentioned by the Apostle John, he says that “stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.” This suggest that there will be several asteroids hitting the earth. Asteroids are larger than meteors and can cause massive damage when they hit earth .
And Jesus may have even been referring to these when in His description of the end-times, the Lord warned about “terrors and great signs from the skies” (Luke 21:11).
So an asteroid hitting our recent “Super Wolf Blood Moon” is not what John prophesied, he said several asteroids would be hitting the earth.
S0 is this a subtle forewarning of what is to come or just a coincidence?
