August of 2016 provides some meaningful celestial activity that we should observe with detail leading up to the notable Jupiter-Venus union in Virgo; 8-27-2016. The first week this month starting Aug. 1st, there is a planetary alignment in Leo just after sunset, with Jupiter, Mercury, Regulus, and Venus forming a diagonal line in the west, as pictured below from Sky at a Glance, for July 29 – August 6 – Sky & Telescope.

Figure 1. Heavenly Signs in Leo during the first week of August 2016. 1

The Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Regulus and Venus, Aug. 3-5, 2016

Regulus passes under Venus — while the waxing crescent Moon emerges in the evening twilight near Mercury and then Jupiter.

This is followed on Thursday, August 4-5 with a Venus-Regulus conjunction, shortly after sunset. Regulus is no more than 1° from brighter Venus, to Venus’s lower left (in North America), as shown above. Here we see the Bright and Morning Star united with the King star on the ecliptic in Leo. This was preceded by a Mercury-Regulus union in Leo on July 30 which we can see in Figure 2 below from EarthSky. Both Venus and Mercury are united with the bright star Regulus in Leo the Lion, but Mercury’s union forms 2016’s closest conjunction of a planet and bright star. The crescent Moon also poses with both Mercury and Jupiter this week low in the western twilight, with Regulus below Venus on Friday. This combination of planetary alignment and conjunction to open the month of August commands our attention, due to its similarity with the planetary alignment in October 2015, except Mercury was substituted for Mars, last year. There were also consecutive conjunctions and alignments on August 5th and 6th in 2015, including a Venus-Mercury conjunction in Leo on Aug. 5th, followed by a planetary alignment of Jupiter, Mercury and Regulus in Leo on Aug. 6th, 2015. If this were not enough, there was also a Mercury-Regulus conjunction the next day on Aug. 7th 2015! These Jupiter-Venus signs support and corroborate the themes of the Mercury-Venus conjunctions we see leading to the potential Return of the Lord Jesus Christ. This notable parade of heavenly signs depicts some heavy celestial traffic leading up to and pointing toward the Rev. 12 signs of 2017!

Figure 2. Mercury-Regulus Conjunction in Leo July 30th, 2016. 2

For a big sky watching challenge, try finding the planet Mercury in conjunction with the star Regulus on July 30, 2016. Mercury and Regulus will be in between the dazzling planets Venus and Jupiter, the third and fourth brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun and moon. Read more.

Kicking off these August signs in Leo is the July 30th Mercury-Regulus conjunction seen above. The 2016 planetary alignment in Leo bracketed by these two Regulus conjunctions provides added emphasis on the coming replay of the birth signs of Jesus Christ from 3-2 BC. Mercury-Gabriel announces this alignment of planets in August, marked also with the Venus-Regulus union wrapping up the first week. The heavenly birth signs for Christ are set to rewind in 2017, with a prominent role for Jupiter, the King Planet and Royal Sceptre of the King of Kings.

It is interesting that; Biblically “a Sceptre can also be symbolic of a person.” In (Numbers 24:17), we read;

 ”I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near: a star shall come out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of Seth.”

That Sceptre embodied the prophesied return of the Promised Seed, who came first over 1,900 years ago and by his sacrifice, provided redemption for all mankind. All who believe in Him, and follow Him, have a pathway back to God, Who alone is able to deliver them. Our website study on the General Sign of the Celestial Prelude covers the significance of this Numbers 24 record regarding the Sceptre, in the context of the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ.

On August 15, 2016 Mercury is between Venus and Jupiter, which are 12 degrees apart, forming a triangle in Leo, as seen below in Figure 3.

Figure 3. August 2016 Jupiter-Mercury-Venus triangular union in Leo. 3

There was also a 1 degree Triangular massing of Jupiter-Venus, Mars in Leo on October 28th, 2015, which is preceded earlier in the month with a planetary alignment with Regulus in Leo, [see Figure 4 below]. This is significant due to the resemblance again of the Rev. 12 heavenly sign, where the WomanVirgo is crowned with 12 stars, consisting of the 9 fixed stars in Leo, combined with the planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars, forming the Crown of 12 stars over Virgo’s head. This alignment set the stage for the Feast of Tabernacles week, marked by the Super Blood Moon on Sept. 28th. A very similar planetary alignment will be seen again in Sept. of 2017, involving the same players except Mercury will replace Jupiter in Leo, while Jupiter is birthed in Virgo. These heavenly signs of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad depicted key celestial foreshadowing 2 years before the 2017 birthing of Jupiter in Virgo. In fact, these celestial alignments and conjunctions which were so prominently associated with the Blood Moon Tetrad starting in 2014, have nearly been repeated with the Solar and Lunar eclipses on Hebrew feast and Holy days in 2016, linking the heavenly signs of the last three years on the Hebrew Calendar together leading to 2017.


Figure 4. Planetary Alignment in Leo, October 3rd, 2015

 

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the Rev. 12 birth signs of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple alignment of Jupiter-Mars, & Venus in Leo with Regulus, reflects a similar spiritual light in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014–2015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly sign: the [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on September 17th, 2015 was announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo, united with Spica/Al Zimach, on this day, two years ahead of the rewind of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017! The additional heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus in the next 2 years, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb, establish this rewind of heavenly signs in 2017. Mercury and Venus are close all of August 2016 and eventually Venus conjuncts Mercury as the latter slows to its stationary position in the sky before going into a 3 week retrograde motion, from our earth-bound viewpoint. This alignment occurs on the exact day that both planets conjunct Jupiter to within one degree on Aug. 30th, ‘16. It further coincides with the day Mercury starts its stationary, a notable day in Mercury’s retrograde event.

The following dates, show with the Regulus unions in Leo, the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Virgo in 2016-2017:

July 30th, 2016 Mercury-Regulus Conjunction
Aug. 5th, 2016 Venus-Regulus Conjunction
Aug. 26-27th, 2016 Jupiter-Venus conjunction [Jupiter enters Virgo]
Feb. 26th, 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction
Sept. 23rd, 2017 [Virgo clothed 
with the Sun/Moon @ feet]-Rev. 12:1-2 
Nov. 13th, 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction

The two brightest planets –Venus and Jupiter –teamed up to provide the closest planetary conjunction of 2014, which has been the closest Venus- Jupiter conjunction during the six Lunar Eclipses of 2014-2016, until August 27, 2016, when Jupiter enters Virgo to be eventually “birthed” in 2017. This Venus-Jupiter union on August 27, will see these two planets three times closer than during their 2015 union when they were separated by only 1/3 of a degree.

This comparison of celestial alignments within the Lunar Eclipse Sextet from 2014-2016 in the current JubileYear of 5776 may signal a window for the Savior to return FOR his Saints bracketing the 1st appearance and return of the King of Kings at the right hand of God.

As we saw the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2015 mirror the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 3-2 BC during the birth of Christ, we find Venus also united with Regulus and Mercury in 2016. Here the Arch-angel Gabriel announces the arrival of Regulus, the King star and brightest star in Leo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, [Rev. 5:5].

Jupiter-Venus Conjunction

These signs marking the birth and end-time replay of the Rev. 12 heavenly signs are punctuated by what appeared as an invisible lunar eclipse during Full Moon on August 18th. Intriguingly the context for this invisible eclipse in Aquarius provides a key link to the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 with the added lunar eclipses on the Hebrew Holidays of Passover, March 23th 2016, and the Sukkot Lunar eclipse coming next month on Sept. 16th, 2016.

Full Moon in Aquarius with Lunar Eclipse: The Finger of God

The sky of the full Moon in Aquarius on Aug. 18th presents an interesting configuration because on the same day the Moon glides across the edge of the penumbral shadow line, while not entering the shadow. This is as close to an eclipse as you can get, without actually having a true eclipse. With this INVISIBLE ECLIPSE a slight drop in the Moon’s brightness was detectable with professional equipment, but was not visible to the naked eye. This eclipse grazed the northern edge of the Earth’s penumbral shadow, marking the end of the Saros series 109. This invisible Lunar Eclipse, also produces what is known as a Yod configuration,” outlined in Aquarius. The celestial Yod is seen with the Moon in Aquarius, and Mercury with Jupiter in Virgo, forming a long triangle shape, pointing to Mercury and Jupiter.

The Yod is the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, one of the most important, as it is the 1st letter of the Name of God (Yah-vey). It looks like a simple dot, but it means that the finite world can contain the infinite world. It is the primordial life of the Universe as it means the “Finger” or “Hand of God,” synonymous with the infallible evidence of Divine authorship visible in all His worksThe energy that it carries reveals the infinite capacity and Will of God to support the whole of creation and also our capacity to align our thoughts to the Word of God and receive insights and guidance for our spiritual growth. This invisible eclipse in the context of these heavenly signs marking the Return of Christ, reflects Jesus returning from God’s Right Hand at a specific time which is generally unknown to mankind, to Gather his Saints. With this invisible eclipse taking place in Aquarius, that represents the outpouring of the holy spirit on mankind, which is activated at the highest level when the Saints are clothed with their new spiritual bodies at this Gathering. A deeper understanding of the mysteries of God based on the fundamental truths of Scripture, enlightens our path in the Light from God above, to guide us in our daily lives, in this case to prepare us for the Lord’s long awaited return.

Deuteronomy 9:10 (KJV)

10 And the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which the Lord spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.

The Yod is symbolic of the index finger, when God pointed His Finger, He gave us the Written Word of God for the first time on the Mount with Moses, on the Day of Assembly. The finger or right hand of God is a figure of speech called “condescencio” or personification in English, where human traits are ascribed to the Creator, as He ministers to mankind. The Eternal Spirit, the Almighty has no form [Rom. 1:19-23] of any male or female, man, four-footed beast or bird, and certainly the magnanimous intensity of the Almighty would soon vaporize any form of matter, as none can contain Him.

As these heavenly signs of August 2016 lead us into September, we find an annular solar eclipse marking the start of the Feast of Trumpets on Sept. 1st in Israel. In this series of solar and lunar eclipses since 2014, every solar eclipse falls on either the last day of the month, or the first day of the new month (Rosh Chodesh). Nisan 1 begins the ecclesiastical year, while Tishri 1 (Rosh Hashanah) starts the civil year. The 1st of Elul to the 10th of Tishri is Teshuvah, when Moses returned to Mt. Sinai a second forty days. Thus it is a perfect follow-up to Moses first ascent of Mt. Sinai when God pointed His Finger, and gave us the Written Word.

As the Church of the spiritual body of Christ prepares to ascend the Mount of God in the Heaven of Heavens, let us ensure that our hearts are right to kneel before the Heavenly Father in the Lord Jesus Christ.

End Times Prophecy of the Great Pyramid and the Pi and Phi Ratios

The Great Pyramid stands above the drifting sands of time, supremely dominating the Giza Plateau as the last remaining wonder of the ancient world. As both the literal and figurative axis mundi on the face of the earth, it is located at the center of the earth’s land mass at the head of the Nile River delta. As the nexus of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy, it embodies a sacred cosmology that emerges from Scripture, as perhaps the world’s greatest architectural witness to the Coming Redeemer Jesus Christ. The words of the Prophet Isaiah capture this truth:

Isa. 19:19-22
19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. 21 So the Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the Lord. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the Lord and keep them.

In August 2015’s archive post;  The Great Pyramid-the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land  Part I, we covered in detail how the truths of these verses in Isa. 19 describe the Great Pyramid. As we mentioned above the;  The Great Pyramid is located at the center of the land mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one in the ocean and the other at the Great Pyramid, which could be considered the navel of the earth.

Figure 1. Astronomical Alignments of the Great Pyramid’s Star Shafts

When we consider the Pyramid as an allegorical monument at the center of the earth’s geographical landmass, precisely oriented on the four points of the compass, we can see that God’s principles of Creation are opened to us on many levels because its axis alignment on the four compass points are joining geometric angles not only in space, but also in time. The exacting precision of the Pyramid’s orientation reveals first how it determines the boundaries of Egypt; {Isa. 19:19}, secondly, it shows an ancient knowledge of the earth’s dimensions which matches modern science’s knowledge 5000 years earlier, and thirdly it depicts the division of the heavens according to, not only the four cardinal points of the compass, but also the bi-polar model of the heavens including the great circles of the ecliptic and the equator. As a result the Great Pyramid unveils a foundation of spiritual truths in antiquity, revealed according to the code of a mathematical and geometric allegory, with both spiritual and scientific applications unveiling truth on multiple levels of study including; astronomical, geometric, architectural, geodesic, and geographical, among others. This combined testimony of the Great Pyramid provides a singular witness to the Omniscient power of the Creator, and Almighty God not only is the Sole Power capable of Creating our world and Universe we inhabit, but He left us unmistakable evidence glorifying Him as Creator. [Rom. 1:19-20]

Embedded in the mathematical and geometric principles governing the construction of the Great Pyramid are the key numerical constants Pi and Phi, as we mentioned in Part 1 of this post. Also if the height of the pyramid is taken as the radius of a circle, then the circumference of this circle is the same as the perimeter of the base. This provided the complimentary squaring of a circle and circling of a square. The key to this relationship is knowledge of the value of Pi, and designing the angle of the Pyramid to be exactly 51 degrees, 51 minutes, and 14.3 seconds.

Figure 2. Great Pyramid Sun-Moon-Earth Sacred Geometry

Along with other astronomical alignments with the passages and star shafts of the Great Pyramid, it is also the most accurately aligned structure in existence facing true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error. The position of the North Pole has moved according to the Precession of the Poles over time, but the Pyramid was exactly aligned at one time. These and other astronomical alignments unveil a system of revelatory Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy, as seen in Scripture [Gen. 1:14-17], encompassing the various calendars and celestial cycles linked with the Sun, Moon and Stars. This graphic includes the relation of the luni-solar cycles via the phi ratio [1.618] in each 50-year Jubilee cycle, of the Hebrew Calendar, because there are 618 full moons every 50 solar years. In Figure 3 below we find the dimensions of the Sun-Moon-Earth plan embodied in the Great Pyramid, all unified in the Base 60 number standard. On top of the diagram we see the diameter of the Moon equal to 2160 miles [6 x 6 x 60]. The Moon is flanked by two 3-4-5 triangles [in green] containing the capstone of the Pyramid. Below that, we see the diameter of the Earth equal to 7920 miles [12 x 660]. Here we find a standard of other related measures like 7920 inches in a furlong, of [660 feet] reflecting 7920 feet in a league. This earth commensurate standard is also found in the sides of New Jerusalem [Rev. 21:16] making it a cube of 12,000 furlongs, per side or 12000 x 660 feet equaling 7,920,000 feet.

Figure 3. The Great Pyramid and the Squared Circle [p. 70] 4

The combined Earth radius of 3960 miles with the Moon’s radius of 1080 miles are also shown in the graphic above, totaling 5040 miles. As Michell concluded, “using the actual proportions and dimensions of the solar system [based on pi and phi] the canonical figure of the 12 sided New Jerusalem is produced.”5  Here God has employed the dimensions of our planet and Moon contained as part of the geometric phi symphony of our solar system preserved in the the Great Pyramid and embodied in the measures of the New Jerusalem, relating to the divine canon of Scripture. These symmetric principles designed by God, into various living and non-living systems from the very beginning, do not appear as a result of any exclusive evolutionary process in Nature. Very simply, if this Symmetry is present at the outset, not in an isolated sense, but across all the kingdoms of life regardless of scale, then Intelligent Design is not only implied but, it becomes a given. Since we find varied manifestations of the phi ratio operating at the basis of the mathematical reality that underlies all Creation even at the quantum levels, we don’t discover or formulate it, we only observe it in its beauty and awesome detail. These principles of Symmetry in Creation don’t occur randomly, but they are seen systematically and on multiple inter-related levels and dimensions throughout all Creation. This is undeniable evidence of the Intelligent Design of the Creator.

These inherent mathematical and geometric principles governing the design of the Great Pyramid, are the basis of a universal system of measurements. For example, the curvature designed into the faces of the Pyramid exactly matches the radius of the earth. As Figure 2 above depict the geometric plans of the Sun-Earth-Moon system, we can see the key number 273 relating to the cycles of the Mean solar/sidereal days, the lunar cycle of 27.3 days, the same as the Sun spot rotational period, to name a few. We also find human biological gestation and menstrual cycles of the same length aligned to this model. With these and other dimensions of our planet built into the Great Pyramid, the greatest of the world’s ancient wonders, thousands of years before modern science was ever aware of this Omniscient knowledge, exploding the tenets of their evolutionary cosmologies, and any materialistic accounts of the origin of the Universe.

The banner above focuses on a phi/Fibonacci relationship in our solar system between Jupiter and Saturn in relation to the Earth, reflected in the line below the planets divided according to the phi ratio. This exhibits a phi relationship to the mean heliocentric distances of these planets. Even with Saturn itself we find several examples phi relationships. The diameter of Saturn is very close to a phi relationship with the diameter of its rings, as seen in the green lines. The inner ring division is in a relationship that is very close to phi with the diameter of the rings outside the sphere of the planet, as illustrated by the blue lines below. 6

Saturn’s Phi Dimensions

The Cassini division in the rings of Saturn falls at the Golden Section of the width of the lighter outside section of the rings. As the planets are dispersed in their orbital paths through our solar system, they reflect this phi relationship. But this is only one of these relationships among many in our solar system. If it was only a few incidents of phi, it could be written off to coincidence, but as we can see this is clearly not the case, as Johannes Kepler depicts for us in his Harmony of the Spheres, also seen in the structure of the musical scale.

Figure 3. Harmony of the Spheres

Geometry in space / Sacred Geometry <3:

We also find relationships of the Fibonacci Series and the phi ratio in the mean sidereal and mean synodic planetary cycles, not to mention their periods of revolution and mean orbital speeds, to include inverse velocity relationships, all based on the ubiquitous phi ratio. Again these multiple phi relationships on their own, might perhaps not be enough evidence to convince us of the Creator’s Intelligent Design, however once we see that all these individual planetary relationships fit together themselves in a phi spiral, or logarithmic spiral that operates as an exponential constant, organizing the entire order of our solar system, God’s Symmetry becomes much more difficult to deny. This is especially the case when we find that the beauty of this celestial phi symphony of our solar system is only a smaller reflection of the same phi spiral that highlights the rotational Symmetry of our spiral Galaxy in the Milky Way, also seen in other spiral galaxies in the Universe. Please go to the following link, that goes into greater detail regarding these truths than I have space for here. (www.spirasolaris.ca), 7

Figure 4. The Golden Ratio Rectangle

Here is a simple way to draw and understand a rectangle using the Golden Ratio:

Draw a square (of size “1”)
Place a dot half way along one side
Draw a line from that point to an opposite corner (it will be √5/2 in length)
Turn that line so that it runs along the square’s side

Then you can extend the square to be a rectangle with the Golden Ratio. This rectangle above shows us a simple formula for the Golden Ratio.

When one side is 1, the other side is:

The square root of 5 is approximately 2.236068, so the Golden Ratio is approximately (1+2.236068)/2 = 3.236068/2 = 1.618034. This is an easy way to calculate phi and related geometry we find in our next example.

This is a key topic in our study of Biblical Astronomy principles which are evident in other studies on our website, like The Calendar of the Biblical Patriarchs. This study points out among many other things that the cycles of the Sun and Moon are correlated via the phi ratio [1.618] in the 50-year Jubilee cycle, because there are 618 full moons every 50 solar years. This not only exhibits another phi relation in our solar system, but also ties this divine knowledge to the Hebrew calendar as commanded in Levitcus 25. Thus, God has designed the phi ratio in our solar system, even as He has all the other phi/Fibonacci/Lucas relations, throughout the Natural World, instituting them at the foundation of His Creation, giving glory to His Omnipotence in His loving outreach to man. We find Scriptural evidence of this is in Jeremiah 31.

Jeremiah 31:35
Thus saith the Lord, Which giveth the Sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the Moon and of the stars for a light by night, Which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; the Lord of Hosts is His name:

The Hebrew word for “ordinance” here, is also used in Job 38:33, in reference to the “ordinances of Heaven” in an astronomical context [Job 38:31-32]. This Hebrew word for “ordinance” is also used referring to Natural Law as seen in Job 28:26, in the context of the Laws of Nature, as prescribed by God concerning the “rain, lightning and thunder.” The laws of the golden section, govern many aspects of the Natural World, and exhibit the Creator’s symmetrical Intelligent Design across multi-levels of His Creation. The preponderance of the phi ratio through the Four Kingdoms of Life, in both living and non-living systems is an awesome testimony to the Creator’s Temporal Order, as seen in our Solar System. This phi ratio, aka. the “Divine Proportion,” is arrived at by a comparison. The relationship that becomes evident in this comparison is divine, because it is found throughout all levels of the Natural World. In the comparison of the divine proportion, the whole is to the larger as the larger is to the smaller. As we observe the Natural World, if we follow this exemplar pattern of the divine proportion, we will compare the larger with the smaller, in the context of the whole. The Figure 5 graphic below also exhibits the phi ratio in a linear context as we have already seen.

Figure 5. The Golden Rectangle

divine proportion

We start with a simple square ABCD. Using a (dotted) line from the midpoint of one side of the square to an opposite corner RC, as the radius, we can construct an arc CE, that defines the limits of a new rectangle AEFD. When we use the endpoints of this arc, we can complete this rectangle; a golden rectangle, exhibiting the golden section. The idea of proportion is also used to compare individual parts, first to each other, then the whole. Numerically, this comparison is expressed as we have shown in the Birth of Abraham banner, above with a line divided under the planets into two parts, where the ratio of the whole line to the larger part is the same as the larger part to the smaller. This is mirrored in Figure 5 above, in the line FD, divided at the golden sectionC.” Thus the divine proportion relates the smallest aspects of Creation to the largest, showing God’s Hand underwriting it all. Some dynamic examples of this are found in the golden rectangles of the Hebrew Tabernacle and Temple. The Tabernacle is a one by two double square rectangle, which is not only the foundation of the blueprints of the Temple of David and Solomon, but also the Ark of the Covenant and the King’s Chamber based on a 3-4-5 triangle of the Great Pyramid, which has the same dimensions as the Ark [Ex. 25:10]. More details on this can be found in our study of the Celestial Symbolism of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle. 8 Since God revealed the dimensions of these sacred enclosures to Moses and King David by divine revelation, we have undeniable proof that the principles of the golden section and phi ratio are utilized as an aspect of the Creator’s Omniscient wisdom and Intelligent Design throughout all levels of Creation [Prov. 3:19]. The Divine power and energy of the Omnipotent Creator resonates in, and through every level of the Works of His Hand, and as we give Him His due credit for His awesome Works, we can join the harmonious chorus of Nature that sings His praises. This linear expression of the phi ratio is also seen in the curved line arc of a logarithmic spiral, reflected in the arc-CE in Figure 5 above. This illustrates the dynamic growth pattern found in the largest spiral Galaxy, to the smallest of human embryos. Below we find added examples of the geometry of the Golden Ratio Rectangle applied to Sun-Earth-Venus orbits.

Ö Period of Venus * Phi = Distance of the Earth

Ö 2.5490 * 1.6180339 = 1.5966 * 1.6180339 = 2.5833

In addition, Venus orbits the Sun in 224.695 days while Earth orbits the Sun in 365.242 days, conforming to an 8/13 ratio that are successive Fibonacci numbers. Thus 5 conjunctions of Earth and Venus occur every 8 orbits of the Earth around the Sun and every 13 orbits of Venus.

Mercury, on the other hand, orbits the Sun in 87.968 Earth days, with an Earth conjunction every 115.88 days.  Thus there are 365.24/115.88 conjunctions in a year, or 22 conjunctions in 7 years, which is very close to Pi! 9 This value for Pi is also arrived at using the Fibonacci number series. As we relate the Phi ratio to the Fibonacci number series, it is possible to use consecutive [21-34-55] Fibonacci numbers to obtain an accurate relation for the diameter of the circle without dependence on Pi. If the Fibonacci number 21 is taken as the diameter of a circle, its circumference will be 66 [55 x 6/5] accurate to the thousandth part, yielding the Great Pyramid value for Pi of 22/7, [3.14285]. 10 The higher Fibonacci numbers utilized produce numbers closer in accuracy to Pi values, relating to the design of the Pyramid’s dimensions incorporating the length of the shortest degree of Latitude at the equator.

In our most recent blog post in July, 2016  we showed how Daniel Matson has not only depicted the astronomical and geometric Pyramid relationships with planetary unions depicted on Rosh Hashanah in Sept. 20/21 2017, but as we can see in his graphic below, he points out the Phi pattern of the Venus-Jupiter, Venus-Mercury conjunctions leading to the Fall of 2017.11 Curiously, this pattern seems to align with the a version of the golden rectangle geometry illustrated above conforming to the phi order of our solar system. As noted in June’s blog, the three Mercury-Venus Conjunctions taking place this year with the most recent one on July 16th, Matson depicts in [Fig. 6] below this month’s VenusMercury union in a phi relationship with the 1st JupiterVenus unioon Aug. 18th, 2014. The end date of this phi relation is Sept. 23rd, 2017, the date of the replay of the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo. When we consider the VenusJupiter Conjunction of Oct. 25th, 2015, in this mix we have three key planetary conjunctions all involving Venus the bright and Morning Star in a phi relation leading to the Rev. 12 sign on Sept. 23rd, 2017.

Figure 6. Phi pattern of Venus conjunctions 2014-2017.

Certainly the Almighty has plainly shown those who do not willfully ignore the abundant evidence, how He is moving Heaven and Earth according to the perfect symmetric design in the works of His mighty Hand, warning mankind of the impending return of His only begotten Son. He has made Salvation available in Christ alone, so that even a fool need not err therein, [Rom. 10:9-10, John 3:16]! Let us not fall into the trap of the wisdom of this world, which is foolishness unto the Almighty.

Comments Off on End Times Prophecy of the Great Pyramid and the Pi and Phi Ratios [Part 2]

End Times Prophecy of the Great Pyramid and the Pi & Phi ratios

The topic of our most recent June blog post was the three Mercury-Venus Conjunctions taking place this year, leading up to the heavenly signs in the late summer and fall of 2017 corresponding to the signs of Rev. 12. These Rev. 12 signs mark both the birth and potential return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The preliminary 2015 Rev. 12 heavenly signs were also summarized as they occurred at the conclusion of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad in September of 2015.1

In our archived blog posts on August 1st and August 17th of 2015 we also included articles on the Biblical import of  The Great Pyramid-the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land,  Parts I & II, which among many other things notes the keys of the so-called Bethlehem Line or “Christ Angle,” and the Great Pyramid in Biblical Prophecy. The correlation of these topics with the heavenly signs and planetary unions surrounding the Birth of Christ has been posted in our studies at [www.try-god.com] since 2002, and were also included with my 2006 DVD study on the Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ, available in our bookstore. An observation made in Part 1 of the blog post on the Great Pyramid was;

“This so-called Bethlehem line not only intersected Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, but also intersects the point where Moses crossed the Red Sea with the nation of Israel during the Exodus, the point where the River Jordan was parted when Israel was led into the Promised land by Joshua, and at Jerusalem/ Mt. Zion, only 5 miles north of Bethlehem. Thus the “Bethlehem line” seems to summarize in geographical terms, Israel’s story of deliverance and redemption from Moses’ Exodus of Egypt, to Joshua in the Promised Land including Christ’s birth in Bethlehem.”2

There are other notable researchers who have acknowledged the correlation of Rosh Hashanah not only at the Birth of Christ on Sept. 11th, 3 BC, but also as it could relate to his victorious return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, with the Rev. 12 heavenly birth signs replaying in 2017, in light of the Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy of the Great Pyramid. One of these researchers is Daniel Matson from the Signs of the End website; [http://watchfortheday.org/signsoftheend/giza2024.html].3

He broaches this topic by asking the question; “Could Rosh Hashanah be the real factor? The basic idea is that the pyramid complex is a map of the heavens of a point in time when Christ returns. The pyramids show what is to be at meridian (Al Nitak in Orion), and also the causeways heading east from the pyramids show the importance of the rising sun or other items rising in the east. That the Sphinx also looks to the east is a factor as well. The point though was to see when there was a candidate for an alignment of Rosh Hashanah and the meridian alignment of Orion at dawn.”4

As we have posted in numerous blog articles, the heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ as seen in Rev. 12 will also mark his victorious return, and we have documented how these heavenly signs surrounding the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad and the signs leading up to the fall equinox of 2017, establish this truth. It is good to see other researchers seeking Rosh Hashanah dates that match the picture of heavenly signs stated in Rev. 12, in this time frame. Matson has uniquely shown a critical relationship between the Christ Angle of the Great Pyramid and the Rosh Hashanah date starting-sundown on Sept. 20th-21st, 2017, two days before the Feast of Trumpets on 9-23-2017.  “This is the first year from now that Rosh Hashanah immediately comes after Sept. 20th—the time Al Nitak hits the meridian precisely at dawn, and also when Regulus hits the Christ angle. Thus, the Christ angle not only bisected Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, but it also bisects Regulus at this possible time of his Return in 2017.”5

Figure 1. The Dance of Venus

The Dance of Venus. An accurate scientific drawing of Venus amazing pattern around the Earth Did you know that Venus, our closest planetary neighbour, draws a beautiful fivefold pattern around Earth? She does this every eight years. This extraordinary hi-res image shows Venus path around Earth over 32 years and has been generated by legendary author, researcher and publisher John Martineau. Sacred Geometry:

Flower of 5-petals of Venus’ orbit around the Earth every 8 years, equal to 13 Venus years, revealing the Fibonacci triple [5:8:13]

The first clincher here is that on Rosh Hashanah-2017, Venus the bright and Morning Star is in conjunction with Regulus at dawn in alignment with the Christ Angle, visible above the horizon. Secondly, below the horizon is Jupiter-known as the “scepter” in [Num. 24:17ff], and King planet of the Jews is positioned at about the same distance as Regulus and Venus are above the horizon. This Dawn Venus-Regulus union reminds us of the testimony of the Apostle Peter;

2 Peter 1:19-21
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

The Almighty has provided many examples from History and Nature, not to mention numerous Biblical miracles that confirm His Prophetic Word, and the combined witness of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy with the Great Pyramid provide excellent depictions of this verse with the Morning Star [Venus] aligned with the King Star Regulus at dawn on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 21st, 2017, according to the measures of the Great Pyramid’s Ascending/ Descending passages, [Fig. 2 below]. If indeed these heavenly signs are pointing to The Dawn of The Day of the Lord’s Return FOR his Saints in Sept. of 2017, then it will truly be the dawn of a New Day and Age of Everlasting Righteousness in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Figure 2. Signs of the End – The Oracle in Stone. 6

The Ascending and Descending Passage Planetary Alignments of the Great Pyramid on Rosh Hashanah, 2017.

This view of the prophetic aspects of the Great Pyramid with its Ascending and Descending Passage angles supports what the Scriptures say about the witness of the Great Pyramid in Isaiah 19:19-20. What is evident from this graphic [Fig. 2] is the central importance of the planets Jupiter and Venus in marking the Birth and Second Coming of the Lord. As we are currently marking the 3 Mercury-Venus unions of 2016, with the next one due on July 16th this month, the activities of these planets leading up to the heavenly signs of 2017, are noteworthy in light of the Great Pyramid. Historically, Great Pyramid researchers going back to ancient times have made intriguing observations concerning the dimensions and symbolism of the only ancient wonder of the world still standing. Ancient Scholars from Herodotus to Agatharchides of Cnidus in the 2nd Century BC, usually emphasized the mathematical and geometric principles governing the construction and conception of the Pyramid complex on the Giza Plateau, as opposed to their specific measures. Livio Stechini, a modern scholar analyzing the work of these ancient and modern Pyramid researchers, focused on the meridian triangle of the Great Pyramid, which provided excellent values for both the Pi and Phi ratios, of the four triangular faces of the Great Pyramid. Agatharchides presented dimensions for two meridian sections of the Pyramid based on Pi, with the other two triangular sections based on Phi.7 As we should recall from our High School Geometry classes, Pi holds the relationship between the diameter of the Circle and its circumference. In Sacred Geometry, a spiritual view of geometric principles is held where the Circle symbolizes the Eternal Creator [Elohim], and the Diameter represents Jehovah in relationship with His Creation. Jehovah is seen reaching out to humanity through His only begotten Son, where Jesus is the diameter line that connects the centerpoint [Man-creation] to the Creator seen as the eternal Circle, outside of Creation. Thus Christ is the mediator between God and Man [I Tim. 2:5].

Figure 3. Golden Ratio Great Pyramid of Giza – Bing images 8.

There are a number of Scriptures where Christ is referred to as the Chief Corner Stone, who is also understood as the headstone [pyramidion] that completes the full measure of the Great Pyramid; [Eph. 2:20, Psalm 118:20-22]

Psalm 118:19-22 (KJV)

19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

Figure 4. Phi Ratio in Nature

Phi Spirals in God’s Creation from the Nautilus Shell to Spiral Galaxies

Ephesians 2:20 (KJV)

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

As Agatharchides presented dimensions for the two meridian sections of the Pyramid based on Pi, with the other two triangular sections based on Phi, we find a representation of the four-D ministry of Christ aligned with the 4 triangular faces of the Pyramid. The two triangular faces on the Pyramid’s east-west axis are calculated with pi values, representing the aspects of Christ as King in the Gospel of Matthew, and the Son of God in the Gospel of John. These embody the perfected aspects Christ’s ministry since he is now seated at the right hand of the Heavenly Father as the enthroned King and only begotten resurrected Son of God. The Pyramid’s faces on the north-south axis hold values of phi, representing growth aspects of the kingdoms of Life on Earth, as seen in Christ’s ministry as the Son of Man in the Gospel of Luke, and the Servant in the Gospel of Mark. As the ultimate example of a ServantChrist humiliated himself [Phil. 2:1-8] so that God could exalt him forever at the right hand of the Father. These archetypal lessons of spiritual growth embodied in Christ’s example to all humanity, embody the growth that all members of the body of Christ in his Church, need to follow. As the Son of Man, Jesus is the Paragon of humanity, the exemplar that we all must emulate to make our calling and election sure. The link to Biblical Astronomy is found in Al ZemachSpica the brightest star in Virgo that embodies the four-fold ministry of Jesus Christ as the King, Son of Man, Servant, and Son of God. The Four Gospels reflect these four ministries of Christ, seen in the Hebrew word “tzemach”-or the “branch.” This Hebrew word is used 12 times in the OT, but these four usages [Isa. 4:2, Jer. 23:5, Zech. 3:8, 6:12] depict the four-fold Ministry of the Messiah, Jehovah’s Branch, and offspring.

Since Pi [3.14159…] is central to the geometry of the circle, and the Great Pyramid, it is worth pointing out the relationship between pi and phi, because phi can also used to obtain the value of circular functions, with one example seen clearly with the pentagon or pentagram inscribed in a circle. An astronomical example of this which we have seen archived in our Sept. 2014 blog post related to the Celestial Symbolism of the Prophetic Tabernacle Plan, concerns the geometric pattern of the Venus Transits. The graphic below shows an example of phi ratio geometry manifested in the Fibonacci number series as it relates to Venus Transits, and the celestial dynamics of our solar system.

Figure 6. Venus Transits

In the Almighty’s Intelligent Design of Creation, examples of golden section Symmetry embodied in phi ratio patterns, abound in our solar system, [Fig.4]. They are God’s geometric finger prints indicating the pattern of natural growth-life, which only God can originate as the True Source of all living things. The Earth-the garden home of Man, abounds with examples of phi Symmetry in all Four Kingdoms of life. A beautiful example of this is found first in a comparison of Venus-Earth orbits. These two planets orbit the Sun in a phi ratio, harmony, depicted above in a geometric pentagonal pattern [Fig. 6], since their mean orbital distances link to  [1+1/phi2]:1.10

 The phi ratio relationship is also found in Venus’ closest and furthest orbital distances from the Earth, defined as [phi4 :1] to 99.99% accuracy, which are depicted as two 5-pointed stars, one within the other!11 Also when the 5 triangles associated with these stars are nested together, we find Golden Spirals emerging, as seen in the nautilus spirals at the center of galactic swirls millions of light years in diameter, [Fig. 4] forming the pattern of numerous spiral galaxies. Additionally, Venus forms a beautiful 5-petalled flower around the Earth every 8 years, equivalent to 13 Venus years, revealing the Fibonacci series [5:8:13] based on the phi ratio, [Fig. 1] ordering Space-Time planetary orbits in our solar system.12 This five-pointed star whose segments relate to phi, are also found in Nature for example in the center of an apple.  Only the Creator’s Hand working in His handiworks can account for this symmetric beauty underlying all Creation, since “random chance” most assuredly cannot.

Daniel Matson has not only shown the astronomical and geometric pyramid relationships with planetary conjunctions depicted on Rosh Hashanah in Sept. 20/21 2017, but as we can see in his graphic below, he points out the Phi pattern of the Venus-Jupiter, Venus-Mercury conjunctions leading to the Fall of 2017. As noted in June’s blog, the three Mercury-Venus Conjunctions taking place this year with the next one due on July 16th this month, Matson depicts in [Fig. 7] below this month’s Mercury-Venus union in a phi relationship with the 1st JupiterVenus union on Aug. 18th, 2014. The end date of this phi relation is Sept. 23rd, 2017 the date of the replay of the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo. When we consider the JupiterVenus Conjunction of Oct. 25th, 2015, in this mix we have three key planetary conjunctions all involving Venus the bright and Morning Star in a phi relation leading to the Rev. 12 sign on Sept. 23rd, 2017, reminding us again of 1 Pet. 1:19-20 above.

Figure 7. Signs of the End – Phi-nomenal Phi in the Signs. 13

The conjunctions of Jupiter and Venus were also very prominent marking the birth of Christ. In our June, 2015 blog post we noted three Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, and the triple union of Jupiter-Venus aligned with Regulus in Leo, reflects a similar spiritual light in 2015. The key element of these Jupiter-Venus unions is their alignment with Regulus on the ecliptic in Leo, carrying not only the original import of Regulustriple coronation, by Jupiter the king planet, but Venus the Bright and Morning Star is added also [Rev. 2:27-28]. The planetary symbolism of these conjunctions depict Jupiter-the King planet uniting with Venus-the Bright and Morning Staraligned with Regulus in Leo the Lion of Judah[Rev. 5:5].

These planetary unions of 2015 are followed with added Jupiter-Venus unions occurring in Virgo in 2016-17. These Jupiter-Venus unions taking place first in Leo then in Virgo, form the elements of the Celestial Sphinx as was also evident in the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC. If we relate this to Matson’s view that “the basic idea of the pyramid complex is a map of the heavens when Christ returns,” then we can see the Earthly Sphinx facing East at dawn on Rosh Hashanah, mirroring the Celestial Sphinx signs depicted with the Jupiter-Venus planetary conjunctions leading to this date on this Hebrew Feast with the Rev. 12 signs of the autumn equinox in 2017. Thus we find a culmination of the Jupiter-Venus unions in a Phi relation leading to the Ascending/Descending passage alignments of the Great Pyramid with both Jupiter below the Horizon and Venus aligned with Regulus above the Horizon. This Pyramid passage alignment of Venus and Regulus taking place on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 20-21, 2017 emphasizes the Rev. 12 sign alignment of Venus, Regulus, Mercury in Leo, forming the Crown of Virgo in the repeat of the Rev. 12:1-2; “Great Wonder in Heaven” two days later on Sept. 23rd 2017. This crowning of Virgo, reflects the triple coronation of Regulus by Jupiter’s retrograde motion in 3-2 BC, with the modern emphasis on the crowning of Messianic Israel with the Church of the Age of Grace.

As we compare the phi dimensions of the prophecies of the Great Pyramid with the phi aspects of the Venus planetary conjunctions leading to both the Feast of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah on 9-20/21-2017 and the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo-Leo, it seems that the pyramid prophecies are speaking to us on multiple levels regarding Christ’s victorious return, drawing our attention to these Hebrew feast dates surrounding the autumn equinox in 2017. With the combined witness of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy the Great Pyramid and the signs of the Magi all pointing to the Fall of 2017, we have plenty of reason to have our houses in order in readiness to see the Lord Jesus Christ face to face.

BirthofChrist

The Biblical Astronomy of the Mercury-Venus Conjunctions of 2016-2017


There are three Mercury-Venus Conjunctions taking place this year, leading up to the heavenly signs in the late summer and fall of 2017 corresponding to the signs of Rev. 12. These Rev. 12 signs mark both the birth and potential return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The preliminary 2015 Rev. 12 signs were also summarized below as they took place at the conclusion of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad in September of 2015 seen below.


BLOOD MOON TETRAD 2014-2015 Summary

Sept. 13th 2015 [Partial Solar Eclipse-Rosh Hashanah]
Sept. 17th 2015 [Sun clothing Virgo with the Moon at her feet]
Sept. 17th 2015 [Mercury-Spica in Virgo]
Sept. 23rd, 2015 [Hebrew Jubilee Year opens on the Day of Atonement]
Sept. 28th 2015 [Final Super Blood Moon, Feast of Trumpets]
October 8th, 2015 [Venus-Regulus in Leo]

These heavenly signs of Rev. 12 in 2015 occur two years prior to the replay of  these signs in 2017. Of particular note from the summary above is the conjunction of Mercury with Spica/Al Zemach in Virgo, not only on Sept. 17th, but also the next month on October 29th 2015, which opened the Jubilee year of 5776 on the Hebrew Calendar. Al Zemach as the brightest star in Virgo represents the four-fold ministry of Jesus Christ as the King, Son of Man, Servant, and Son of God. The Four Gospels depict the four ministries of Christ, as seen in the Hebrew word “tzemach”-or the branch. This word is used 12 times in the OT, but these four usages delineate the 4-fold Ministry of the Messiah, Jehovah’s Branch, and offspring. The Virgo graphic below is an exciting new addition to our bookstore, featuring the 12 major signs of the ecliptic, with not only their Biblical star names and meanings included, but also their minor signs called Decans, as they represent signs in 10 degree sections of the primary zodiac sign covering 30 degrees each in the 360 degree circle of the ecliptic.

 


1. Matthew
King of Righteousness [“Kingdom” referred to in Matthew more than any-where else] [*Zech. 9:9, Jer. 23:5-6, 33:15] Thus the royal genealogy is in Matt. 1:1-17]. “Kingdom of Heaven” is only in Matthew, none of the other gospels.

2. MarkServant of Jehovah [“Lord” 30x here, 78x in the other 3 gospels] [Isa. 42:1, Zech. 3:8] Thus No genealogy is given in Mark.

3. Luke
Son of Man [Luke records his childhood, his dealings with women, publicans and other key aspects showing his humanity] [Zech. 6:12, thus the human genealogy is given going back to Adam, (Lk. 3:23-38)]

4. John
Son of God [Zech. 4:2][“father”-121x, only 66 times in the other 3 gospels. “My Father”-35x here, only 18x in the other 3 gospels, “only begotten” 4x here, none in other gospels] The purpose of every chapter in John’s Gospel reveals Christ’s true identity.

These heavenly signs relay an aspect of the central role of Mercury-Gabriel in announcing the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus ChristMercury symbolizes the messenger Arch-Angel Gabriel, who was instrumental in heralding the first appearance of Jesus Christ prior to his birth, [Luke 1:11-80]. This is emphasized in key planetary unions of Venus with Regulus and Mercury in August of 2015. On 10/29/15 following the conclusion of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2015, Mercury was also “birthed” in Virgo after a gestation period in Virgo’s “womb” area, of nearly 6 weeks. This symbolic “birthing” of Mercury in Virgo was based on Mercury’s retrograde motion in Virgo at this time. With these signs taking place 2 years prior to the Sept. 2017 replay of the birth signs of Christ, it is notable that they will be followed on Sept. 30th, 2017 with the lowest point retrograde motion of Mercury in Virgo. Below are the dates of the retrograde motion of Mercury in 2016-2017;


Mercury in Retrograde 2016

Jan 05 2016 to Jan 25 2016
Apr 28 2016 to May 22 2016
Aug 30 2016 to Sep 21 2016
Dec 19 2016 to Jan 08 2017 

2017
Apr 09 2017 to May 03 2017
Aug 12 2017 to Sep 05 2017
Dec 02 2017 to Dec 22 2017

When we compare this with the three Mercury-Venus Conjunctions of 2016 and the two added conjunctions of 2017 a pattern arises. Below is a unique spectroscopic view of the planetary surface of Mercury.

The Planet Mercury


Mercury-Venus Conjunctions of 2016-2017

1. May 13th, 2016 in Taurus relates to the Apr 28 2016 to May 22 2016 Mercury retrograde.

2. July 16th, 2016 in Leo

3. August 27th, 2016 in Leo takes place on the eve of the inception of Mercury moving into retrograde starting August 30th, 2016

4. March 16th, 2017

5. December 15th, 2017 relates to the retrograde motion of Mercury from Dec 02 2017 to Dec 22 2017.

Here we can see that these five Mercury-Venus Conjunctions, are bracketed by the first retrograde motion of Mercury in May of 2016 to the last retrograde motion ending on Dec. 22nd, 2017. These Mercury-Venus unions represent Mercury-Gabriel heralding the appearance of Venus the risen Bright and Morning Star, leading up to his potential return in the Fall of 2017 marked by the Rev. 12 heavenly signs. With the first of these Mercury-Venus Conjunctions in 2016 set in Taurus, the Morning Star is seen in the aspect of the Coming Judge returning quickly. This Mercury-Venus Conjunction is followed by two in Leo the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the last zodiac sign emphasizing the lion’s destruction of the serpent.

In a recent blog post of April 2016, we referenced the Biblical Astronomy of the Mercury Transit on May 9th, 2016 as seen in Rev. 19:15-19 below.

Rev. 19:15-19
15 And out of his mouth proceeds a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod [sceptre] of iron: and he treads the [i]winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And he hath on his garment and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords17 And I saw [j]an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid heaven, Come and be gathered together unto the great supper of God18 that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of [k]captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of them that sit thereon, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small and great.

This Mercury Transit has been likened to verse 17 since Mercury symbolizes the Messenger Archangel Gabriel. The transit of Mercury crossing the face of the Sun is seen as this angel Gabriel “standing in the Sun” heralding the victorious return of the Light of the World and King of Kings, With his Saints, even as he announced the coming Promised Seed of Mary leading to his birth, [Lk. 1:26-38, Matt. 1:20-25]. This alignment osky signs including the Lunar Eclipse Sextet from 2014-2016 in the current Jubilee Year of 5776 may signal a window for the Savior to return FOR his Saints that bookends the first appearance and return of the King of Kings at the right hand of God. This information provides plenty of reason to follow Mercury during this period, but this study would be lacking without a corresponding view of the activities of Venus at this time. Just as we have included a review of the May 9th, Mercury Transit so we also need to consider the most recent Venus Transit going back to June of 2012. The first Retrograde motion of Mercury in this period noted above, takes place 3 years from the Venus Transit of June 5/6th in 2012, also in Taurus.

Jupiter-Venus Conjunction

In addition to The triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2015, mirroring the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 3-2 BC surrounding the birth of Christ, Venus also saw significant unions with Regulus and Mercury in 2015. Here the Arch-angel Gabriel announces the arrival of Regulus, the King star and brightest star in Leo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, [Rev. 5:5]. There were consecutive conjunctions and alignments on August 5th and 6th in 2015, including a Venus-Mercury conjunction in Leo on Aug. 5th, followed by a planetary alignment of Jupiter, Mercury and Regulus in Leo on Aug. 6th, 2015. If this were not enough, there was also a Mercury-Regulus conjunction the next day on Aug. 7th 2015! These Jupiter-Venus signs support and corroborate the themes of the Mercury-Venus conjunctions as we have seen in this study. This impressive parade of heavenly signs involving Mercury depicts some heavy celestial traffic leading up to and pointing us toward the Rev. 12 signs of 2017!

As the time gets shorter everyday approaching the victorious return of the Lord, the enemy gets bolder and more open about his will to oppose and destroy the purposes of God. He knows his time is short and he is eternally defeated, but he wants to take as many down with him as he possibly can. The key as Luke tells us, is do not be deceived! [I Cor. 6:9, Gal. 6:7]

Luke 21:8

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draws near: go ye not therefore after them.

We must stand strong and vigilant against the wiles of the devil [Eph. 6:11] especially in these last days!
