A pastor has warned that a solar eclipse on Thursday could mean the end of the world is coming.

The annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, will grace the morning skies on Thursday, June 10, when the sun and moon cross paths.

And for Pastor Begley, who presents the weekly series The Coming Apocalypse which is broadcast on some TV channels in the US, the eclipse is a sign of the end of times.

He has warned about Thursday's eclipse, citing concerns about its appearance over Moscow.

The full Ring of Fire will only be visible to a select few locations in northern Canada, Greenland and northern Russia, ExpressOnline reports.

But places outside of the annular eclipse's path, such as Moscow, will still be treated to a partial eclipse of the Sun and for people in the UK it will look as if someone is taking a bite out of the Sun.

Pastor Begley believes there is ample Biblical precedent to prove this phenomenon is a sign from God.

He cited a passage in Genesis 1;14, which describes the creation of the world.

The Bible reads: "And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish between the day and the night, and let them be signs to mark the seasons and days and years.'"

According to pastor Begley, the solar eclipse is one of the "signs" designed to be a reminder of God's power over Earth.

He said during a nine-minute live broadcast on YouTube: "So God's saying, 'I'm going to put signs in the heavens.' Some of them are of prophecy."

The preacher then cited passages from Luke 21, which speaks of "signs in the Sun, Moon and stars" before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

"On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity roaring and tossing of the sea," the script reads.

"People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

"At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

According to pastor Begley, all of these signs are unfolding before our very eyes and the Day of the Lord is rapidly approaching.

The preacher fervently believes we are already living in the End Times and it is a matter of time before the prophecies of Christ's return start unfolding one by one like a row of dominoes.

He said: "Look at the meteorites, look at the asteroids, look at the incoming debris field, look at the radiation, the UV rays, the cosmic rays, the extreme weather conditions, the droughts.

"Listen, it's going to get ugly, guys, and then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

"When these things begin to pass, He said, 'Look up, lift up your head, for your redemption is drawing nigh.'"

There is, of course, no scientific evidence to back these claims and there is nothing out of the ordinary about Thursday's solar eclipse.
