'The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood,' passage reads Joel

As climate change wreaks havoc worldwide, and relations between the U.S. and Russia reach a low point over Ukraine, some Christians say that the phenomenon of the "Blood moon" may mean that Christ's return is rapidly approaching.

'Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change' by Texas mega-church pastor John Hagee are recent books on the phenomenon.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In the early morning hours of this past April 15th, the moon slid into Earth's shadow, casting a reddish hue on the moon. While two lunar eclipses annually is expected, there will be four such blood moons within 18 months, in what astronomers call that a tetrad. Furthermore, all of them are scheduled to occur during Jewish holidays.

Authors of numerous books refer to a Bible passage that refers to the moon turning into blood. "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord," Joel 2:31 says.

In the New Testament, Acts 2:20 reiterates the phenomenon: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord."

"Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs" by Washington state author Mark Biltz, "Blood Moons Rising: Bible Prophecy, Israel, and the Four Blood Moons" by Oklahoma pastor Mark Hitchcock and "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change" by Texas mega-church pastor John Hagee are recent books on the phenomenon.

Hagee's book is currently fourth on The New York Times best-seller list in the advice/how to section. The controversial 74-year-old founder of San Antonio's Cornerstone Church tome has spent 152 days in Amazon's top 100 books.

Hagee says that something will happen to the nation of Israel due to the tetrad. The four eclipses occur on April 15 and Oct. 8, 2014, and April 4 and Sept. 28 next year. The ones in April occur during Passover, and the ones in October occur during the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles.

Hagee writes that every time a tetrad occurs on Jewish feast days, something traumatic and "world-changing" happens to Israel.

As evidence, Hagee cites that in 1492, the Jews were expelled from Spain and Christopher Columbus discovered America, giving the Jews a place to go. In 1948, the modern state of Israel was born, and in 1967, Israel won the Six-Day War and recaptured Jerusalem.

Hagee suggests that a Rapture will occur where Christians will be taken to heaven, Israel will go to war in a great battle called Armageddon, and Jesus will return to earth.

NASA doesn't consider tetrads as especially rare, saying in a statement that there will be eight sets of tetrads before the year 2100. Experts say that the most unique thing about the upcoming tetrad is that they are visible from all or parts of the United States.
