The Sept. 23rd, 2017 Heavenly Sign of Rev. 12 in Teshuvah-The Season of Repentance

As a follow-up to our June blog post on the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse we will look further into the association of this exciting Solar Eclipse with the upcoming Rev. 12 celestial sign on Sept. 23rd, 2017.  The Total Solar Eclipse was a heavenly spectacle that drew the attention of a national US audience, as they followed it racing across the country, starting in Oregon on the Pacific and exiting S. Carolina to the Atlantic. This once- in-a-century celestial event did not disappoint as mostly clear skies prevailed over 2/3rds of the US mainland, and even areas with cloud cover allowed the thronging crowds openings to view the key aspects of totality during the solar eclipse.

As we recognize the Biblical significance of the signs in the Heavens in the late summer of 2017, our understanding is increasingly enlightened as we notice the history behind the calendar of Israel with the origin of its feasts and holy days. Much greater attention has been focused on the Hebrew Feasts over the last few years due to the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014-2015, as a series of Blood Moon Lunar and Solar eclipses fell on these holy days drawing the world’s attention to their importance. Fewer realized that this phenomena continued into 2016, which was missed by most due to the confusion of the modern Calendar of Israel with followers using mathematical formulas instead of original Biblical and agricultural determinants, for adding the extra 13th month of Adar. These practices include the sighting of the New Moon and the ripeness of Aviv Barley.  The state of the barley requires verification at the end of the 12th month of the Hebrew Calendar. If the barley has not ripened enough, then another month [Second Adar] must be added and the barley checked again at the end of the 13th monthIf the barley is Aviv at this time, then the next New Moon becomes the “New Moon of Aviv.” This was the situation in the Spring of 2016, as enough barley was ripe in Israel on March 9th, coinciding with a New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse. This allowed March 9th-to link with Nisan 1, in the sacred Hebrew calendar, followed by Passover two weeks later on March 23rd, aligning with a Full Moon Penumbral lunar eclipse! This provided two more solar and lunar eclipses on Hebrew holy days in the Spring, which were followed by two added eclipses in the late Summer/Fall of 2016, making a total of 6 Lunar Eclipses on Hebrew Feast days in three consecutive years leading into 2017.

This convergence of celestial alignments within the Lunar Eclipse Sextet from 2014-2016 with the Total Solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017, shows a series of Solar and Lunar eclipses on sacred feasts culminating in the Season of Repentance on the Hebrew Calendar in 2017. This highlights the importance of the timing of the Total Solar Eclipse on 21st August 2017 in relation to the 1st day in the month Elul, marking 40 days of Repentance to prepare for Yom Kippur- or the Day of Atonement.

The Season of Repentance also links historically not only to the JupiterVenus unions framing the birth of Christ, but also to current events of the Total Solar eclipse on August 21st, and the celestial signs of Rev. 12 on Sept. 23rd, that are also framed by Jupiter-Venus unions in 2017, between 2/26 and 11/13.

The Month of Elul serves as spiritual preparation for the High Feasts of Rosh Hashannah on Tishri 1, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement on Tishri 10. These 40 days from Elul 1 to Yom Kippur are historically related to Moses’ multiple ascents of Mt. Sinai where he spoke with God and received the 10 Commandments. However, when Moses descended into Israel’s camp, he found them committing the sin of the Golden Calf idolatry, where upon in his wrath, Moses smashed the original Tablet of Commandments. The Season of Repentance came about as a result of 40 days of Israel asking the Heavenly Father’s forgiveness in prayer for their grievous sin. This was followed by another 40 days where Moses ascended Mt. Sinai again to God, Who gave him a new set of Tablets with His Commandments. In the Old Testament Israel conducted sacrifices in the Tabernacle and Temple once annually, but only the High Priest was allowed in the Holy of the Holies with an offering for all of Israel. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ is our Anointed High Priest, after the order of Melchizedek, who laid down his life as the perfect sacrifice in an everlasting Priesthood once and for all, setting the precedent for our spiritual new birth in Christ.

This Season of Repentance or Teshuvah is not only critical for Israel, but for the Gentile Christian Church also, because even though we enjoy salvation wholeness in our spiritual rebirth in Christ, our continued repentance is required because we still break fellowship with God, as we lack the perfection of His Glory. Our continued striving in this life will only be complete once Christ returns to Gather Together the Messianic Jews and the Church of Christian Believers in His spiritual Body.  [Rom. 8:28-30, 12:1-2, Cor. 5:17]

The 27th Psalm has always been linked as central to the Season of Teshuvah in Israel.

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

The first phrase of this verse links the Light of the Lord [Jehovah] with His Salvation. The Torah has linked the light of Jehovah here with Rosh Hashannah, and Tishri 1. It has also tied the Salvation of Elohim together with Tishri 10 and The Day of Atonement.

Psalm 27:4-5
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

The burning desire of the Psalmist is to “dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of his life.” In doing so God hides us in “the secret of his tabernacle,” and under the shadow of God’s wing no evil can touch us. This verse has been linked to the Feast of Tabernacles which is the 3rd Fall feast following those of Psalm 27:1 above. Thus we
see how the Season of Repentance sets the theme for the Fall feasts on the calendar of Israel. The heart of repentance before God is seeking His Face as it says in verses 7-9.

Psalm 27:7-9
Hear, O Lord, [Jehovah] when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer meWhen thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God [Elohim] of my salvation.

When we seek God in repentance we not only turn away from evil, but we turn towards God. In doing so we replace our evil habits of the flesh with, the principles of walking in the light as He is the Light, [1 Jn. 1:7]. Thus we forsake the old man and put on the new, [Rom. 6:6, 2 Cor. 5:17, Eph. 4:22, Col. 3:9] growing closer to God in Christ each day. When this becomes our delight then God gives us the true desires of our heart. This is when our righteousness truly is illuminated-shining forth for all to see.

Psalm 37: 4-6 
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

 Since repentance can only exist after the entrance of sin, a primary purpose for God’s Creation of mankind is Repentance. This is man returning to God, turning away from evil, so that God can return to man. In God’s foreknowledge He foresaw the fall of creation and He knew mankind would sin and have need of a Savior from sin. So God allowed the sinner to be broken so he could of his own freewill, return to God’s light via His plan and purpose of salvation. This is a universal need since all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. 3 [Rom. 3:23, 512]

A month after, the Total Solar Eclipse we find during the “Days of Awe” from Rosh Hashannah on Tishri 1 to Yom Kippur on Tishri 10, a confirmation of celestial events as described in Revelation 12. As we consider the Great Sign of Revelation 12, on Sept. 23rd, 2017– a 400 day [40 x 10] link was found to Yom Kippur 2017 via unions of Jupiter-Venus, as seen below. But, the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse of August 21st, 2017, is 40 days before Yom Kippur 2017, falling on Sept. 30th. The Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 starts this traditional 40 day Season of Teshuvah. The Season of Repentance is the call to repent before the Day of the Lord and the last 10 days from Tishri 1-10 are High Holy Days.

As we review the context of this total solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017 we find the following dates, shown with the Regulus unions in Leo, and 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
August 21st, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse in Leo @ Regulus
Sept. 23rd, 2017 [Virgo clothed 
with the Sun/Moon @ feet]-Rev. 12:1-2
Sept. 30th Yom Kippur-Day of Atonement

Nov. 13th, 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction

As we saw in our June blog post, we saw the Biblical history of a prior Teshuvah Eclipse involving the Prophet Jonah, during his journey to Nineveh. The purpose of Jonah’s prophecy is to show the sovereignty of God at work in the personal life of Jonah, and his concern not only for His own people, but also for those of Nineveh to help them a avert national catastrophe. There are four steps to the process of Repentance that we find both with Jonah and the Ninevites in this record. The Chart below indicates the presence of these four steps first with Jonah first and then with the people of Nineveh.

1. Forsake Sin:  [Jon. 2:1-2]   Nineveh [Jon. 3:5]

2. Regret the Breach  [Jon. 2:3-7]   Nineveh [Jon. 3:6]

3. Confess and make amends  [Jon. 2:8-10]  Nineveh [Jon. 3:7-8]

4. Accept forgiveness, move with God [Jon. 3:1-3]  Nineveh [Jon. 3:9-10]

Jesus employed the repentance of the Ninevites to rebuke the Pharisees, thereby illustrating the hardness of the Pharisees’ hearts and their unwillingness to repent (Matt. 12:38-41; Luke 11:29-32). The heathen city of Nineveh repented at the preaching of a reluctant prophet, but the Pharisees would not repent at the preaching of the greatest of all prophets, in spite of overwhelming evidence that He was their Lord and Messiah.

 Elul is the month of repentance on the Jewish calendar, the time of turning in the tithes to the storehouse. In the 30 days prior to Tishri 1, the day of Christ’s birth in 3 BC, the shofar was blown each day except the Sabbath in preparation for Hebrew New Years day. The first shofar blast began with a long single tone in memory of the coronation of the King. This is noteworthy not only because all the Kings of Israel counted their reigns from Tishri 1, regardless of when their reigns began, but this is also a key with the birth of Christ whose celestial coronation was recognized with the first of 3 Jupiter-Regulus conjunctions starting Sept. 14th, 3 days after his birth on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. As we may recall it was by following the King Planet Jupiter that the Magi were led to the Christ child in December of 2 BC.

The proximity of this year’s August 21st total solar eclipse relating to the “Rev 12 sign” on 23rd September, 2017, demands our attention. This marks the culmination of an astronomical event which began on November 20, 2016, when Jupiter (the King planet & Sceptre) entered into the body of the constellation Virgo. Due its retrograde motion, Jupiter spends 9.5 months in the“womb” of Virgo, till September 23rd, after which it will be “birthed” by exiting with the Sun rising directly behind the constellation Virgo, [on 9/9/17] with the Moon at her feet and a crown of twelve stars above her head. Biblically, a Sceptre can also be symbolic of person. In Num. 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 embodies 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 us. Our web-study on the General Sign of the Celestial Prelude  covers this Numbers 24 record regarding this Sceptre, in the context of the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ. It also provides perspective on the birthing of Jupiter from Virgo’s womb on Sept. 9th 2017. When Israel rejected the King-Jesus Christ, they also rejected his Kingdom, which has been in abeyance ever since awaiting the return of the King, which will happen in two phases. First Jesus will return FOR his Saints [1 Thess. 4:13-18] and take his Church to the right hand of the Father. Then Jesus will return WITH his Saints [Rev. 19:11-21] to conquer and vanquish the evil ones that remain on the earth.

With this impressive and breathtaking parade of celestial signs including Blood Moon Tetrads, a Lunar Eclipse Sextet, numerous Planetary Conjunctions and Alignments, prophesied celestial signs marking the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Total Solar Eclipses, all linked to High Feast and Holy days of the Hebrew Calendar, the Almighty has been screaming to get our attention that its high time to awaken, and Give God His due!!

We have also pointed out in the case of Nineveh that they experienced pervasive civil unrest and at least 2 plagues leading up to the Teshuvah Eclipse [Bur-Sagale Eclipse] that took place OVER NINEVEH on June 15th, 763 BC to kick off the 40 day Season of Repentance, [Jonah 3:4].  This has been documented in the Assyrian Eponym Canon as a solar eclipse identified correctly with the Total Solar Eclipse that occurred in 763 BC, confirmed by other astronomical observations from the same period. 2

With the recent August 21st Eclipse whose visibility was confined to the US mainland, Solar Eclipses [generally understood as signs for the Gentile world] we in the US have already seen flooding of historic proportions as a result of Hurricane Harvey, during the first week of Teshuvah 2017! Perhaps a National Repentance is in order from top to bottom, as we saw in ancient Nineveh, where even the livestock was covered in sackcloth and ashes; [Jon. 3:8], because with all the evil going on in our country, which is plain for all to see, we certainly need to turn back to the Heavenly Father in a “yuge” way! The heart of a national repentance is expressed in Hosea 14.

Hosea 14

14:1 O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.

Take with you words, and turn to the Lord: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips. Asshur will not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy. I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from himI will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon. They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they will revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof will be as the wine of Lebanon.

 Ephraim will say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found. Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors will fall therein.

Certainly if we return to the Lord, He will receive us graciously. Tis’ the Season to turn away from evil and turn towards God, and it all starts with each of us individually!!

*Please be aware that we are not predicting the end of the world. Nor are we predicting a date for “the rapture” or the second coming of Christ! We do see and believe that God is communicating a message through His celestial signs about the last days and general proximity of the gathering of the Church and Christ’s return.  We believe that these prophetic events could occur soon, but only God knows the day and hour on which they will occur.

Comments Off on The Sept. 23rd, 2017 Heavenly Sign of Rev. 12 in Teshuvah-The Season of Repentance

History of Biblical Astronomy

The Tabernacle Colors and the Phi and Lucas Ratios

The Bible tells us God gave Moses certain colors relating to the construction of the Tabernacle.

As it says in Exodus 26:1, “Make the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim worked into them by a skilled craftsman.”

This reference to the combination blue, purple and scarlet in the construction of the tabernacle appears 24 times in Exodus 25 through 39, describing not only the colors to be used in the Tabernacle curtains, but also waistbands, breastplates, sashes and other garments of the High Priest.

Exodus 36 gives us details of the colors utilized in the veil of the Tabernacle depicting the Cherubim. Let’s consider some of this color symbolism in the services of the Tabernacle and Temple.

Exodus 36:35-36 And he made a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: with cherubims made he it of cunning work. And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four sockets of silver.

The veil hung from four pillars, representing the terrestrial number, and the earth’s orientation to the four Cardinal Directions of the horizon. The symbolism of the number four is prominent in the imagery above, not only in the four pillars holding the Tabernacle’s veil, but also in the four colors of the Tabernacle shown in the veil. The four colors are blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen. Blue represents peace, showing us the presence of God and is seen in the Son of God as the Prince of Peace. Purple represents royalty, and is seen in Christ the King of Kings. Scarlet or Red represents blood, and is seen in the innocent blood of the Man Jesus Christ, the high priest offering his perfect sacrifice and sin offering of his own life for our redemption. The linen was white, symbolizing the purity and righteousness of the Servant of God. Thus the four colors of the Tabernacle collectively embody the four-fold ministry of Jesus Christ as the chief cornerstone in the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, showing his dominion over all Creation. We also find a relation in these four pillars corresponding to the four Cardinal Directions, known as the equinox and Solstice seen on the ecliptic and Equator at the four-corners of the heavens. These four cardinal points correspond to the tribes, zodiacal signs and colors as follows:

Eagle/Aquila [replacing Scorpius below]
North/Scorpion/Scorpius/Dan/White (omitted in Num. 24, & Ps. 75:3ff)
East/Lion/Leo/Judah/Purple. (Numbers 24:9)
South/Man/Aquarius/Reuben/Red. (Numbers 24:7)
West/Bull/Taurus/Ephraim & Manasseh/Blue (Numbers 24:8)

The Four Cardinal Points

The vision of Ezekiel at the river Chebar describes these living creatures, specifically their four faces, matching the signs of the four Cardinal Directions of the heavens. As we have noted regarding the North, it was omitted for a number of reasons, which we will handle in more detail shortly. In the North we find the face of the sign Aquila the Eagle [Ezek. 1:10], replacing that of his natural born enemy, the Scorpion/ serpent, as is evident in the triple sign of the man Ophiuchus, as he wrestles Serpens the serpent, while stamping out the light of the star Antares, in the heart of Scorpius the scorpion. Ezekiel’s vision is recorded below.

Ezekiel 1:3-11
The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him. 4And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. 5Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass. 8And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. 9Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. 10As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

Hebrew Armillary Sphere  1

The matching of the faces of these four living creatures with the four signs at the cardinal points in Numbers 24, is worth a closer look. First, this correlation with the four Cardinal Directions of the horizon seems an obvious celestial reference, supported by the celestial wheels within wheels connected with these Cherubim, [Ezek. 1:16, 20-22, 10:1-22]. These wheels relate to the celestial structure of the ecliptic and the Equator, as one wheel is pictured above within the other, and the points where they cross are the equinoxes. One Hebrew word for “wheel” in Ezekiel, [10:2 & 10] is galgal [*H1534], a variation of Gilgal [*H1536], the “Hill of God,” [I Sam. 10:5] where Joshua set up an altar of twelve stones [Josh 4], one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. The word galgal is also the root origin of our word “Galaxy,” showing a celestial application of these wheels even into the modern day. Similar to the stellar reference of the 12 precious stones of the High Priest’s breastplate, as symbols of the twelve signs of the zodiac, Joshua’s altar marked the entry of the 12 tribes into the promised land, that was first deeded to Abraham [Gen. 13:14-15]. God marked the end of the Israel’s sufferings in the wilderness even as He had marked their exit from Egypt, with a miracle of parting of the waters, both of the Red Sea at the start of the 40 years in the wilderness, and of the Jordan River at the end. He also marked the beginning of Israel’s reign of kings both in the anointing of Saul, along with the first Passover in the promised land at Gilgal. Joshua 5:9-10 has a figurative portrait of this initial Passover, as these “wheels of God’s justice” rolled over the heathen that stood in Israel’s way. Thus when we view the two phases of the return of the promised seed, first in his sufferings second in his glory, we can see the following division along the lines of Jesus’ ministry as seen in the four gospels:

Sufferings

He came as a man/Son of Man/Luke/Aquarius
He sacrificed his life/Servant/Mark/ Eagle for Scorpion

Glory

The Son coming in judgment/Son of God/John/Taurus
The Lion-king of Judah rending his prey/King/Matthew/Leo

The 4 primary colors of the Tabernacle not only embody the ministry of Christ, but also a Phi relation to the color spectrum and to the musical scale. As we investigate this field of study we can perhaps gain insight into movements of the Creator’s symphony of sound and light.

For example Fibonacci numbers appear in the musical scale and in pure harmonic intervals like the octave [2:1], the fifth [3:2], and major and minor sixths [5:3] and [8:5]. Also the entire overtone series is based on golden ratios. The octave divided by a perfect fifth, (13/20), produces the golden ratio. The perfect fifth divided by an octave, (8/13), produces the golden ratio. The perfect fourth divided by a major sixth, (6/10), produces the golden ratio. And The major third divided by a perfect fifth, (5/8), also produces the golden ratio. The overtone series appears across various forms of music, and is a natural order of notes that is played by horn instruments. The phi ratio not only rules over the musical scale but also over the structure of musical instruments.

In Part 1 of this study seen in our May 2017 Blog post, we noted a correlation in the structure of DNA both to the Fibonacci and Lucas number series. As Jean-claude Perez suggested there is a strong link between DNA and golden ratio in 1991,[1] then later in 1997 in his book l’ADN décrypté[2]. His work shows that relative proportions of nucleotides within coding DNA sequences like genes or RNA strings are governed by specific Fibonacci and Lucas number sets. The resulting “DNA supracode” is revealed by computing sets called “resonances” within any DNA sequencespecific nucleotide clusters like FFF (Fibonacci Fibonacci Fibonacci), LLL (Lucas Lucas Lucas), FFL (Fibonacci Fibonacci Lucas) or LFF (Lucas Fibonacci Fibonacci). An example of elementary FFF resonance: 144 contiguous TCAG bases contain exactly 55 bases T and 89 bases; A, C or G. This kind of screening is processed along the DNA sequence, for all possible Fibonacci/Lucas combinations, and for all possible values (example here 144-89- 55 are 3 consecutive Fibonacci numbers). There appear many “resonances”. For example, in the HIV whole genome, of about 9000 bases, there are more than 50,000 significant Fibonacci/Lucas resonances. The longer resonances (several hundred resonances) are overlapping about 2/3 of the whole HIV genome (6765 bases which is the 20th Fibonacci number-see chart below). 1

The Fibonacci and Lucas number series as reflections of the Golden Section are both additive, since each number is the sum of the previous two in the series, and the product of the previous term, multiplied by phi. No other number series displays these traits of geometric growth fusing both addition and multiplication. Yet it is also capable of division and subtraction as the Creator installed limits on the positive entropy of disorder and death in His reordering of the kingdoms in the fallen world. Thus like the nautilus that grows into the form laid out in the perfect geometry of its shell, various life-forms in the Kingdoms of Life follow the pre-ordained geometric patterns of growth, as built-in limitations to their species and genus. We find this stated in Romans below.

Rom. 8:19-23
19 For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only this, but we too, who have the first fruits of the Spirit [a joyful indication of the blessings to come], even we groan inwardly, as we wait eagerly for [the sign of] our adoption as sons—the redemption and transformation of our body [at the resurrection]. 

The world is captive to sin and the destruction of entropy, as it groans for the redemption and deliverance of the Lord Jesus Christ, at his return. As the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek, Christ represents not only the restoration for all mankind, but all Creation. We can begin to see the impact of the Fibonacci number series as the determinant of the patterns of geometric growth in the 4 kingdoms of life, in the first 20 Fibonacci digits provided below.

Each [F number] represents the approximate geometric mean of its two adjacent numbers in the series. This geometric mean between the two numbers equals the square root of their product. In the numerical progression of this series, alternative [F numbers] require a +1/-1 correction. Lucas numbers operate on the same geometric mean principle, with a +5/-5 correction under the square root. This depicts how both series progressively converge on the Phi ratio to higher degrees of accuracy. A more direct relation between the two series is also apparent in that any 4 consecutive [F numbers] add up to the Lucas number linked to the 4th [F number]. Also odd [F numbers] sum to the next even [F number], while even [F numbers] converge to -1 of the next odd number.

Lucas series number values; [Ln] appear together with the first 10 Fibonacci numbers in the chart below for comparison: 4

n: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Fn: 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55
Ln: 2 1 3 4 7 11 18 29 47 76 123

The Lucas numbers share many similar properties with the Fibonacci Number series. As we note the numerical relations between the Fibonacci and Lucas Number series, perhaps further insights will come to light. Thus it is noteworthy that every 3rd Fibonacci number is an even number since it is divisible by 2. Every 4th Fibonacci number is divisible by 3, and every 5th Fibonacci number is divisible by 5. Also every 6th Fibonacci number is divisible by 8.

As we consider the spiritual unity of the body of Christ, with each member reflectinging the spiritual abilities of Christ in them [Col. 1:27], each Christian believer embodies a unique aspect of Christ in the spiritual body of his Church. God has called this church together as it has pleased Him, and its perfect union is likened to and centered around the love in Christian marriage, [Eph. 5:22-31]. As we find the phi ratio expressed in the Temple & Tabernacle of Israel, not to mention the human body ideally expressed in the perfect man Jesus Christ, we can see the elegance of the divine expression of this unity geometrically portrayed via the proportional symmetry of the golden section.

History of Biblical Astronomy

Biblical Astronomy of the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse-America Repent!

On Aug. 21, 2017, something is going to happen in the United States that has not happened since 1918. This Total Solar Eclipse event will unfold across America on August 21, crossing parts of 14 US states. Both professional and amateur Astronomers have been excited about the upcoming Pan-American Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 because it is very rare.

Figure 1. Paths of Two Total Solar Eclipses in 2017 and 2024 over North America

On that date, a Total Solar Eclipse will be visible all the way from the east coast to the west coast. Incredibly, another rare solar eclipse of this nature will move across the country just seven years later in 2024. The projected courses of these two solar eclipses form a giant “X” across the continental United States. In the Scriptures, Jesus told us that “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon and in the stars” just prior to His return, causing many to wonder what this giant “X” of solar eclipses might mean. Some believe these two eclipses scheduled to be visible across the United States in 2017 and 2024, could be the starting and climax signs marking a seven-year period of tribulations spoken of in the Book of Revelation. These are rare events, which is why it is so extraordinary that another solar eclipse will be visible in large portions of the nation just seven years later in 2024. A solar eclipse only happens at New Moon. The Moon has to be between the Sun and Earth for a solar eclipse to occur. August 21, 2017 corresponds with the 29th day of the month of Av on the Hebrew calendar. On this day in the Hebrew year 2448, Moses carved the second set of Tablets as recorded in [Ex. 34:4]

These Solar eclipses could serve as a warning of impending judgments, since the crossing point of these eclipses is very near to the New Madrid fault zone. The New Madrid fault zone is six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Back in 1811 and 1812, a series of very devastating earthquakes along the New Madrid fault zone opened some deep fissures in the ground, caused the Mississippi River to run backwards in some places, and were reportedly felt as far away as Washington D.C. and Boston. They were the strongest earthquakes ever recorded east of the Rocky Mountains, and the heart of this “X” falls not only closest to its place of longest duration of totality, but also precisely in the area where we would expect such an earthquake. This does not mean these two solar eclipses are predicting an earthquake event, but it could serve as a warning for the U.S. to repent and turn to God, reminding us of the Day of Christ’s crucifixion darkness accompanied by a great earthquake.

Pastor Mark Biltz of Blood Moons fame, points out the similarity in these modern Solar eclipses to the setting in ancient Nineveh, where the Prophet Jonah was called to preach repentance.

Biltz said: “Just look at the biblical pattern. Many know the story of Jonah and Nineveh from the Bible, but not the historical background events as to what had already transpired, and why they repented. In 765 B.C., a plague broke out in Nineveh where even the king was not able to go out to war, as was custom. This was followed by a civil war and then another plague!”

The first plague Biltz refers to here took place in 765, followed by the civil war that started in 763, the same year as the eclipse.

“An archaeological find of cuneiform tablets was uncovered in the 19th century describing events in Nineveh. A famous eclipse mentioned in the tablets was known as the Bur-Sagale eclipse, which is verified by NASA as occurring on June 15, 763 BC. The path of totality passed right over Nineveh. God had declared the Sun and the Moon were for signs, and now the Ninevites saw evidence of God’s judgment coming even before Jonah arrived later. When Jonah arrived, they were ripe for repentance.”1

We know that the Prophet Jonah ministered during the reign of King Ashur-Dan III because the Bible mentions him in [2 Kings 14:23-5], placing his ministry during the reign of King Jeroboam II of Israel. Since this solar eclipse was a most noteworthy highlight occurring in the reign of Ashur-Dan III, certain theologians suggest that the Bur-Sagle eclipse was a primary reason that the people of Nineveh were so ready to repent upon hearing Jonah’s message of judgment. “According to E.R. Thiele’s chronology, Jeroboam II was sole ruler of Israel between the years 782-753 BC, while Ashur-Dan III was king of Assyria between 772-755 BC.” Jonah’s entry into Nineveh may have even coincided with this eclipse. 2

The purpose of Jonah’s prophecy is to show the sovereignty of God at work in the life of an individual (the prophet Jonah, and his concern for His own people and that the way to avert national catastrophe is a concentrated outreach effort to all people). Jonah’s theme is God’s mercy to the individual (Jonah, a Jew), a group (the heathen sailors), the heathen world power (Assyria, a Gentile nation), and His people (Israel).

Jesus employed the repentance of the Ninevites to rebuke the Pharisees, thereby illustrating the hardness of the Pharisees’ hearts and their unwillingness to repent (Matt. 12:38-41; Luke 11:29-32). The heathen city of Nineveh repented at the preaching of a reluctant prophet, but the Pharisees would not repent at the preaching of the greatest of all prophets, in spite of overwhelming evidence that He was actually their Lord and Messiah. Jonah is a picture of Israel, who was chosen and commissioned by God to be His witness (Isa. 43:10-12; 44:8), who rebelled against His will (Exodus 32:1-4; Judges 2:11-19; Ezek. 6:1-5; Mark 7:6-9), but was miraculously preserved by God through centuries of exile and dispersion to finally preach His truth; (Jer. 30:11; 31:35-37; Hosea 3:3-5; Rev. 7:1-8; 14:1-3).

As we review the context of this total solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017 we find the following dates, shown with the Regulus unions in Leo, and 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
August 21st, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse in Leo @ Regulus
Sept. 23rd, 2017 [Virgo clothed 
with the Sun/Moon @ feet]-Rev. 12:1-2
Sept. 30th Yom Kippur-Day of Atonement

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 union during the six Lunar Eclipses of 2014-2016, until August 27, 2016, when Jupiter entered Virgo eventually to be “birthed” in 2017. This Venus-Jupiter union on August 27, saw 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 with the Total Solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017 shows a series of solar and lunar eclipses on sacred feasts of the Hebrew Calendar. This highlights the importance of the timing of the eclipse on 21st August 2017 in relation to the 1st Elul, marking a 40-day Season of Repentance to Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. As we find below, this Season of Repentance also relates to the JupiterVenus unions framing Christ’s birth. As we can see above, the celestial signs of Rev. 12 on Sept. 23rd, and the Total Solar eclipse on August 21st are also framed by Jupiter-Venus unions in 2017, between 2/26 and 11/13.

Figure 2. August 15th, 2016 Jupiter-Mercury-Venus triangular union in Leo. 3

ven_jup_160815

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 in a planetary alignment with Regulus in Leo, [see Fig. 3 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, 2015, closing out the Blood Moon Tetrad. 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 fore-shadowing 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 the celestial signs of 2017.

Figure 3. 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.

As we saw the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2015-17 mirror the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Venus both in 3-2 BC during the birth of Christ, we find Venus also united with Regulus and Mercury in 2016. Here the Archangel Gabriel announces the arrival of Regulus, the King star and brightest star in Leo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, [Rev. 5:5].

On August 12th, 3 BC, the first Jupiter-Venus union in Leo framing the birth of Christ took place, which was Elul 1 on the Hebrew Calendar, starting the Season of Repentance. Jesus was born Sept. 11th the following month, or Tishri 1-Hebrew New Years Day. Yom Kippur was Tishri 10 or Sept. 19th that year, making 40 days to the Day of Atonement, from Elul 1.

In the Great Sign of Revelation 12, a 400 day link was found to Yom Kippur 2017 via a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter on August 27, 2016. However, when we note the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017, this eclipse is 40 days before Yom Kippur 2017, which is on September 30. Before the modern Hebrew calendar, from Elul 1 till the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) was 40 days, known as the Season of Repentance.  The total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 begins this traditional 40 day Season of Repentance. The Season of Repentance is the call to repent before the Day of the Lord. Jewish tradition says those who are written in the Book of Life will be resurrected on the Feast of TrumpetsElul is the month of repentance in the Jewish calendar, the time of turning in all the tithes to the storehouse. A month later, we find during the Days of Awe from Rosh Hashanah on Tishri 1 and Yom Kippur on Tishri 10, followed by a confirmation of celestial events as described in Revelation 12.

The proximity of this year’s August 21st total solar eclipse relating to theRev 12 signon 23rd September, 2017, is noteworthy. This date marks the culmination of an astronomical event which began on 20th November 20, 2016, when Jupiter (the King planet) entered into the body of the constellation Virgo. Due its retrograde motion, Jupiter spends 9.5 months in the “womb” of Virgo, until 23rd September, after which it will be “birthed” by exiting with the Sun rising directly behind the constellation Virgo, with the Moon at her feet and a crown of twelve stars (the nine stars of the constellation Leo, together with the planets Mercury, Venus and Mars).

Rev. 12:1-2
‘A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.’

Figure 4. below depicts the moment of the Solar eclipse at the heart of Leo next to Regulus. Thirty days later Venus conjuncts with Regulus prior the Feast of Trumpets. The previous total solar eclipse just before Elul 1 that last introduced a Season of Repentance occurred on August 11, 1999. But only the 2017 eclipse is next to Regulus. Since the rebirth of Israel in 1948, no other total solar eclipse has occured next to Regulus (the King star) opening the Season of Repentance. If God’s people are to return to the heart of fellowship with their Maker, we must return to the heart of fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ first, our Intercessor and Mediator, [Rom. 8:34, I Tim. 2:5, I Jn. 1:3].

From the Total Solar Eclipse on Aug. 21st, the Moon proceeds to the cover the face of the brightest star on the eclipticRegulus the heart of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, on the same day it eclipses the light of the Sun. This Lunar Occultation of Regulus is part of a series, the present of which began on December 18, 2016, and will end on April 24, 2018. Refer to the section below for more info on this interesting lunar cycle. “Now fast-forward to another solar eclipse on August 21, but this time in 1914,” Biltz said. “This is the first day of the month of Elul, which began the month of repentance.’ The first of Elul is when Jonah began prophesying for 40 days. Just before the eclipse, we see on June 28th, 1914, through the month of August, the events of World War 1 begin! The path of totality of this eclipse was over Eastern Europe and the Ottoman Empire or Middle East, including Nineveh again. This foretold the destruction of the Ottoman Empire in World War I.

Biltz suggests such cataclysms may be in store for the United States, especially given the timing of the event.

“Now, this Aug 21, 2017, we have a total solar eclipse going over the United States,” he noted. “This is again at the beginning the month of repentance on the first of Elul! Could God be giving us a warning that we need to repent or judgment will be coming to the United States? The timing of this celestial sign and its relation to the Rev. 12 sign certainly attracts our attention, and should provide a serious warning of a much needed national spiritual course correction!

“We also find seven years later there will be another total solar eclipse running from south to the northeast across the United States on April 8, 2024, with St. Louis in the cross-hairs between the two eclipses, [Fig. 1]. April 8 is significant because it is the anniversary of the dedication of Moses tabernacle, when God reasserted Himself into the affairs of men with His glory coming to earth.” This could link to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ with his Saints in judgment to put down the darkness and bind the enemy for a thousand years.

If the American eclipse of 21st August, 2017 is indeed part of a “sign of Jonah” sequence related to this event, serving as a prophetic warning to the people of America, it is logical to apply the words of the Prophet Jonah himself:

[Jon 3:1-10] Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.”

Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackclothWhen Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.” 10 When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, He relented and did not bring on them the destruction He had threatened.

Image result for the Prophet Jonah images

Verse 3 tells us how great and large Nineveh was. Both Herodotus and Diodorus Siculus say it was 60 miles in circuit and twenty miles across. Verse 4 says during his first day’s journey into the city that in 40 more days it would be overthrown. It is interesting that this 40 day period links to the Season of Repentance ending on the day of Atonement. The response of the people was universal, from the King to the lowest. The combined witness of plagues, civil war, the eclipse and the Prophet Jonah caused every soul in the city to repent.

When the eclipse hits the entire US mainland from coast to coast for the first time since the start of WW1 perhaps the American nation will have had enough of the current division and social unrest to turn their hearts back to God. From the time of this writing to the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse is only about two months to act on a call to repentance for America. It is worth pointing out that exactly 40 days after the date of 21st August is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. We have a unique opening to learn an especially important lesson for all people to “learn from Biblical and celestial history,” and partake in an urgent movement for repentance to the Almighty.

This is a time for believers to urgently unite in fasting and prayer for repentance in our nation!

 

Cycles of the Lunar Occultation of Regulus 5

Regulus is known as the heart of the Lion in Leo. It’s the only first-magnitude star – that is, the only bright star among all the sky’s brightest stars – to sit almost exactly on the ecliptic or sun’s yearly path in front of the constellations of the zodiac.

The Moon in its monthly journey around Earth moves more or less along the ecliptic, too. It can swing anywhere from 5o north to 5o south of the star Regulus. In cycles of about 9 years, however, the Moon actually occults – passes directly in front of – Regulus once a month for a period of about one and one-half years. For instance, the last lunar Occultation series began January 7, 2007, ending May 12, 2008, staging a total of 19 occultations. Regulus-the King Star symbolizes the royal throne of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, as seen in Psalm 89.

Image result for his throne as the Sun before me images
Psalm 89:34-37
34 My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David:
36 His seed shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the Moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah

The present occulation series began on December 18, 2016, and will end on April 24, 2018. Once again, there will be a total of 19 occultations in the series. But to see any lunar occultation of Regulus, you have to be on the right spot on Earth. This occultation occurs shortly after the total solar eclipse (see the following entry) spanning the contiguous United States just to the north. Though the event is not observable due to its proximity to the Sun,

The list of dates for this Occultation series are as follows: 5

1. December 18, 2016
2. January 15, 2017
3. February 11, 2017 [annular solar eclipse 2/26/17]

17. March 1, 2018
18. March 28, 2018
19. April 24, 2018

Exactly midway through the occultation series – on August 21, 2017 – the Moon actually occults Regulus on the same date that the moon totally eclipsed the sun.

How’s that for precision in the Creator’s divine system of celestial mechanics of Biblical Astronomy! How does this relate to the birth of Christ? In previous blog posts we have noted the importance of Jupiter’s Retrograde motion relating to the Signs of the Celestial Prelude.

In November of 3 BC, Jupiter reached its first stopping point in retrograde motion relating to Christ’s birth. Jupiter the king planet had already exhibited its link to Regulus the king star in Leo at Christ’s birth on Sept. 11th 3 BC, with the first of three unions starting Sept. 14th. With Jupiter’s triple crowning of Regulus, the celestial coronation of Jesus Christ was shed forth in the heavens by the hand of the Almighty, Who spun the planets in their courses at Creation. On Nov. 26/27 in 3 BC, the Moon occulted Regulus. The coordination of Jupiter standing still in retrograde with the Regulus’ lunar occultation together is very rare, occurring only once about every 5,000+ years. The blocking of the light from the king star Regulus by the Moon, while Jupiter-with the scepter of the righteous branch standing still in the heavens, foreshadows a relationship seen in Ps. 89 above and Genesis 49.

Genesis 49:8-10.
“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father’s children shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
10 The scepter shall not depart from JudahNor a lawgiver from between his feetUntil Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

On January 20 in 2 BC Jupiter rose just after sunset (acronycal rising). During this is a key phase of Jupiter’s cycle, the full Moon occulted of Regulus. This is a kind of replay of the event previously in Nov. 3 BC. The king star Regulus is occulted by the Moon while Jupiter is standing still at sunset in the heavens. This event took place in the Hebrew month of Shevat, a name which is taken from the Hebrew word for the ruler’s staff/scepter, [shebet], found in Genesis 49:10 [scepter] above. The “lawgiver from between his feet” is a direct reference to the king star Regulus in Leo.

September 18, 2017 – the Moon will occult three planets (Venus, Mars and Mercury) and one first-magnitude star (Regulus) in less than 24-hours time! This will be the first time since March 5, 2008, that three planets have been occulted by the Moon in less than one day. The next time won’t be until July 24, 2036.5 This string of planetary occultations generates more spiritual than observational interest because most of the world is not well-situated for watching even one of these four occultations. With the close proximity to the Great Sign of Rev. 12 on Sept 23rd, this Lunar Occultation of three planets and a first magnitude star on the same day is noteworthy. Of these three planets aligned with Regulus in Leo similar to [Fig. 3] above, only the Moon and Venus will be easy to spot in the predawn/dawn hours, as the Moon blocks the light of Venus as the Bright and Morning Star. Regulus should also be visible below Venus as the Moon passes in front of it next before dawn. You may need binoculars to see the occultation of Mars and finally Mercury.

Three other 1st-magnitude stars – that is, bright stars – reside close enough to the ecliptic to be occulted by the moon: Aldebaran, Antares and Spica. As it happens, Aldebaran, too, is in the midst of an series of 49 monthly occultations that started on January 29, 2015 and will conclude on September 3, 2018.

Antares and Spica have no occultaion series going on at present. Spica will have a series of 20 monthly occultations from June 16, 2024 to November 17, 2025; whereas Antares will have a series of 68 monthly occultations from August 25, 2023 to August 27, 2028. 5

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse is a uniquely powerful sign in the Heavens leading to the celestial fireworks of the Rev. 12 sign in September of 2017! The Almighty has pulled the plug on Heavenly Wonders to get His people’s attention to Repent in these Last Days!! Pray God you are ready for what is coming…

Comments Off on Biblical Astronomy of the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse-America Repent!

Biblical Astronomy of the Phi Ratio in the Temple/Tabernacle of Israel

The Infinite and Eternal perfect wisdom of the Almighty is illustrated for mankind perhaps most beautifully on earth in the sacred Architectural principles governing the structure and dimensions of the Temple and Tabernacle of Israel. The manner in which the Creator set the symbolic mathematical and geometric structure of Israel’s Temple and Tabernacle to portray the order of His Creation, is a key element of this present study. A prime example of this includes the application of the Phi ratio in God’s Creation.

This study endeavors to illustrate aspects of the application of the Phi ratio in the Temple and Tabernacle by the Almighty, and how Christ embodies these principles at the pinnacle of Creation. It is important to realize at the outset that as we study these appearances of the Phi ratio in the Word of God, their application as seen in Scripture far out weighs any application in Greek philosophy or history, or any human application of these principles for that matter, because the perspective of the All-powerful Omniscient Creator of Heaven and Earth, has purposes far beyond those of mortal man, as the Prophet Isaiah tells us.

Isa. 55:7-11
Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LordFor as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

The Science of God is not science for the sake of science itself, but as we study the application of scientific principles from the Hand of God, we can see how the Works of His Hands are manifested from His Spoken and Written Word. Many hold that the Bible is not a book of Science, yet where the Scriptures speak on Science and the Laws of Nature, they embody the inerrant perfect wisdom of God. Judaism practiced in Israel of the Old Testament had many feasts and sacrifices ordained in Scripture. These symbolic Old Testament sacrifices practiced in the Temple and Tabernacle were not just rituals without internal meaning, but ceremonies having true spiritual import. In this context, the Passover Lamb was a symbolic type of Christ, who embodied not only the benefits of the Old Covenant, but also the blessings of the New Testament, even those beyond in the third Heaven and Earth. The symbolism of the Temple and Tabernacle of Israel also provides a very strong case for the Intelligent Design principles utilized by God, in His temporal, physical and spiritual order of the Heavens and Earth.

As the old order of Aaron’s priesthood was fulfilled in Jesus as the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek, God reveals His perfect society, with Christ Jesus as the Head of his Body-the Church. Since Jesus Christ is the perfect man, he embodies an inclusive relevance for the entire body, soul and spirit of man, [I Thess. 5:23]. Only the fool chooses to ignore the inherent harmonies found throughout the Natural World, portraying these truths from the Spiritual World. A goal of this study is to help the reader grasp the potency of the Godly symbolism in Israel’s Tabernacle and Temple. As our study progresses we will note an emphasis on divine celestial order, revealed at a time long before like knowledge was asserted by the ancient Greeks, Babylonians or Egyptians. However, since the Creator was truly the source of the divine design of the Temple and Tabernacle, then we may expect to find unique symmetrical functions in their geometric order, related to kingdoms of life on multiple levels of God’s Creation. When we look to the witness of God’s Word we find these harmonies in their primary and divine context, as opposed to how these principles were applied later in mysticism, secular science, or cosmology. A basic pattern that emerges involves the plans for Israel’s Temple and Tabernacle as divine architectural expressions the gospel of the coming redeemer, written in the stars, serving as a sacred architectural fulcrum between the witness of the stars and God’s written Word. As we will see the divine patterns in the celestial structure are reflected on earthly levels in ultimately as they are embodied in Christ. Let’s begin by looking at a key application of the Phi ratio regarding the blueprints of the Temple and Tabernacle.

Ground-plan of the Tabernacle of Israel

Hebrew Tabernacle layout

In Exodus 25:8 God commands Moses to make a sanctuary for Him.

“Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them. Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.

It is noteworthy that when we examine the mathematical and geometric pattern God refers to here, it emerges from the sacred measures that Moses got from God by revelation, corresponding to the geometric canon called the Phi ratio or divine proportion. The God-given architectural plan for both the Tabernacle and Temple was designed to embody the framework of the celestial structure of Creation in miniature, on the earthly plane. This view is supported in the following quote from Nigel Pinnock, who details some key elements in the pattern given by God to Moses and David:

 The Tabernacle stood inside a court whose geometry was a double square [1 x 2 rectangle], 100 cubits long by 50 cubits wide. Inside the double square enclosure was a triple square 30 cubits long and 10 cubits wide. Its walls were constructed of wooden planks 1.5 cubits wide and 10 cubits high, held in line by strong horizontal bars of wood. The whole structure was covered with skins sewn together in strips 30 cubits long by 4 cubits wide. The Tabernacle was placed in the court towards the west, but with its entrance oriented east-wards, so that according to Josephus: “when the Sun arose it might send its first rays upon it.” The interior of the Tabernacle was divided into two compartments, a scheme which was copied later in the Temple…..The outer compartment called the Holy Place, was a double square 20 by 10 cubits, whilst the inner compartment, the Holy of Holies, comprised a single square. As the height of the Tabernacle’s ceiling was also 10 cubits, the Holy of Holies enclosure was thus a perfect cube (containing the Ark of the Covenant)….The Altar of Sacrifice was the outer equivalent of the Ark of the Covenant. It stood at the center of the outer of the two squares of the enclosureThis altar represented one of the two poles at the center of two squares-each upon its own center of polarity… The dimensions of the Temple, like the Tabernacle before it, were precisely detailed: [I Chron. 28, II Chron. 3]. A triple square double the size of the Tabernacle, and the walls of the Temple were hewn stone lined inside with wood overlaid with gold. The interior comprised a double square rectangular holy place, and a single square Holy of Holies. The interior was 20 cubits high, making the Holy of Holies again, a cubic enclosure. At the very center of the Holy of Holies stood the Ark of the Covenant which formerly had occupied the central point of the  of the Tabernacle… The actual entrance to the Temple was 5 cubits in width, and opened from a porch which comprised two squares of 10 x 10 cubits. It was this porch which supported the two pillars….Jachin and Boaz. 1

An example of the geometry for the 1 x 2 golden rectangle referred to above is seen below.

Plate 1. 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 blueprints of the Temple and Tabernacle.

This is a key topic in our study of Biblical Astronomy principles evident in other studies on our [www.try-god.com] 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 links this divine knowledge to the Hebrew calendar as commanded in Levitcus 25. So, 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, exhibiting the Creator’s symmetrical Intelligent Design across multi-levels of His Creation. The preponderance of the phi ratio through the Four Kingdoms of Life, is an awesome testimony to the Creator’s Temporal Order. This phi ratio, is arrived at by a scale invariant comparison. The relationship that becomes evident in this comparison is divine, because it is found throughout all levels of the Natural World, including the micro to the macro. In this comparison of the divine proportion, the whole is to the larger as the larger is to the smaller. This relationship is seen in Plate 1 above as the linear Phi ratio divided into the square root of 5/2 and 1/2. As we observe the appearance of the Phi ratio in the Temple and Tabernacle, we also find the examples of the two altars within the courts of the Temple/ Tabernacle pattern as a whole.

These ground plans of the Tabernacle and Temple of Israel depict the heavenly image of eastern access to God’s presence, via the High Priest’s annual ministry behind the veil, in the holiest of all. The pattern of access from the east mentioned above, holds true not only for Solomon’s Temple of the Old Testament, but also remained for the later Temple referred to in Ezekiel 43:1-5. The two celestial poles of the ecliptic / Equator are mirrored terrestrially in the physical counterparts of their altars, in both the holy of holies and the holy place. As Pinnock states, regarding the brazen altar of burnt offering:” This altar represented one of the two poles at the center of two squares -each upon its own center of polarity….”2

This terrestrial arrangement mirrors the Venn Diagram at the North Astronomical pole, [Figure A.]. These two altars illustrate the bipolar structure of the heavens, seen not only in the galactic poles of the two great celestial circles of the ecliptic and the Equator in northern skies, but also in their reflection in the Earth’s magnetic and geographic bipolar system. The interplay between these galactic poles exhibits a precession of the poles, where the pole star receded from Thuban of Draco, to Polaris of Ursa Minor, over the last five thousand years, [as seen above in the banner for this study]. This embodies the shift of spiritual power from the dragon at the North pole to Cepheus the enthroned human king, [Christ at God’s right Hand] with the North Star Polaris under his feet [Eph. 1:19-22] in this precession of spiritual power. Within the common space shared between the poles of these two circles moving in opposite directions, lies the astronomical vesica or Venn Diagram of the North Pole. [Fig. A]

This quote above from Pennick gives us an indication of how the original principles of “sacred geometry” are preserved in the dimensions and measures of the Tabernacle and Temple and the corresponding elements of their walls, furniture, columns, curtains, altars, orientation, and architecture. This divine celestial plan modeled in the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle, is the foundation of the “sacred geometry” adopted by Freemasons and others before them, who have tainted these truths in the defiled context of mysticism, divorced from their authentic roots in Judaism and the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs. This study endeavors to return the roots of Astronomy to its genuine origins, dispensing with the corrupt astrological influence and heathen mythology of various ancient cultures and secret societies. Figure A illustrates the double square rectangle, based on the phi ratio, that provides key aspects of both the “pattern of the Tabernacle” and  Temple of Israel. [Heb. 8:5, Exod. 25:9, 40]

Figure A. The Northern Astronomical Vesica

celestial design of the heavens

This view powerfully depicts how the Temple and Tabernacle symbolized God’s celestial design of the heavens, seen in their two altars, mirroring the two poles of the ecliptic and the Celestial Equator. This also agrees with many of the principles seen in the pattern of God’s Intelligent Design inherent in His Creation. Since this God given “pattern of the Tabernacle” is constructed upon the phi ratio also known as the “divine proportion” or the golden section we find definitive Biblical evidence that this universally recognized standard of measure is truly divine in origin, since the dimensions of these sacred architectural structures were given by revelation from God to Moses and King David. By prioritizing a godly view of this evidence, it allows us to catch new glimpses of glories long hidden from the astrologers and empiricists, whose practices for too long have clouded the inherent grandeur of the Creator’s sacred architecture.

Figure B. The Plans of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle


Figure A
 above shows another view of the precession of the poles from the perspective of the interlocking wheels of the ecliptic and Equator, with the fish shaped lozenge of the vesica between them. This “vessel of the fish” is formed from the lozenge of these two inter-locking circles, the center of each located on the perimeter of the other. Archimedes called the formula associated with this, the “Measure of the fish,” and it is also linked to John’s Gospel record in [Jn. 21:11], where the disciples caught 153 fish following Jesus’ directions. Its import to math and geometry was found in the ratio of its height to its length [153:265], and that it represented the nearest whole number approximation of the square root of three, along with controlling ratios of equilateral triangles.3   

The dynamic celestial equator, the second circle secular in nature, relates to both the civil calendar year and the earthly Equator as it is mirrored above into the heavens. The movement of this equatorial pole around the static pole of the ecliptic is what is known as the precession of the poles. The intersection points of the ecliptic and the Celestial Equator are called the equinoctial points, which we know as the Spring and Fall equinoxes, the days when the length of daylight is equal to the dark of night. The altar in the Holy of Holies, keeping the Ark of the Covenant is represented in the sacred pole of the ecliptic, around which the equatorial pole moves, both wheels, inter-locked in the form of a Venn Diagram, depicting God’s personal presence among His people.

Figure C. The Ark of the Covenant

Image result for ark of the covenant images

Exodus 25:10 “Have them make an ark[b] of acacia wood—two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.[c] 11 Overlay it with pure gold, both inside and out, and make a gold molding around it. 12 Cast four gold rings for it and fasten them to its four feet, with two rings on one side and two rings on the other. 13 Then make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold. 14 Insert the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark to carry it. 15 The poles are to remain in the rings of this ark; they are not to be removed. 16 Then put in the ark the tablets of the covenant law, which I will give you. 17 “Make an atonement cover of pure gold—two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.

In Exodus 25:10, God commands Moses to build the Ark of the Covenant, in which to hold His Covenant with the Israel, the Ten Commandments.

The measures of this Ark in the ratio of 2.5 to 1.5 is 1.666…, is a close rendition of phi (1.618). The Ark of the Covenant is thus constructed using the Golden Section, or Divine Proportion, and compares to the dimensions of Noah’s Ark [Gen. 6:15] also built in the same proportion as ten Arks of the Covenant along side each other. The measures of Noah’s Ark; 50 x 30 cubits, in breadth and height also a ratio of 5 to 3, or 1.666, is again the same approximation of the Phi ratio as the Ark of the Covenant. The ratio evident in both of these examples include numbers of the Fibonacci Series [1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…] where the two previous numbers in the series added together equal the third number. As this number series progresses, the higher numbers in the series converge in increasing levels of accuracy to the value of Phi 1.61803399… Thus the numbers 3 and 5 represent lower numbers in the series having a more general approximation to Phi. It is also notable that the phi ratio as seen in [Ex. 25:10], also appears in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.

Once Israel became centered in Jerusalem, the Ark of the Covenant moved from the Tabernacle to the Temple because the Ark represented not only the personal presence of God among His people-Israel, but it was also an ordained location where God met and talked to His people [Ex. 25:22]. The truth that the Holy of the Holies was where God manifested His infinite, All powerful presence in Shekinah Glory, in a way that His people could comprehend, finds its pinnacle in Christ, who declared God on the level of the senses more fully than any ever or will ever be done. Here we find another reason why God would utilize the Phi ratio to open the way of access for His people through Christ-into His Presence. Idea of the location where God presented Himself to His people, like Mt. Sinai was corrupted in heathen religions to the concept of an Axis Mundi, or “center of the Earth,” where devotees communed with idol gods of world religions, like the Oracle at Delphi. But with the Creator’s blueprint of the two altars of the Ark of the Covenant and the brazen altar of burnt offering centered in the Holy Place and the Holy of the Holies, mirrored at the North pole in the two celestial poles of the ecliptic and Equator, reflecting also the terrestrial and magnetic poles of the Earth, we find this pattern verified on three levels on earth and in the heavens. The celestial poles set the temporal standard on Earth as the terrestrial poles mirror their counterparts in the heavens. The two altars in the Temple/Tabernacle reflect the spiritual poles where the Almighty has made a way for man to meet and commune with his Maker. Lets now take a closer look at the outer Altar of burnt Offerings.

Figure D. Altar of Burnt Offerings
Image result for hebrew altar of burnt offerings images

In Exodus 27:1-2And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be four-square: and the height thereof shall be three cubits. And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the four corners thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay it with brass.

As we can see the Altar of Burnt Offerings that God commanded Moses to build is based on a variation of the same numbers of 5 x 3 in the Fibonacci Series: an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.” It was the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ the pinnacle and perfection of Humanity, as the head of his spiritual body embodying all the ideals and sacrificial offerings in the Temple and Tabernacle in human form. When Christ laid down his life, his one time sacrifice paid the price for all humanity, and as the perfect High Priest Jesus embodied the atonement not only for Israel, but all mankind. In John 2:19 Jesus says to “destroy this temple,” while he stood in Herod’s Temple in Jerusalem.

In effect Jesus’ contrasted the physical Temple wherein he stood, to his own physical body, the embodiment of the true templeJesus Christ, the 2nd Adam, is the consummate archetype, the finished model, and “chief cornerstone” not only for the nation of Israel as the Passover lamb and High Priest, but also for the Church of his spiritual Body, beginning at Pentecost after his resurrection and ascension. As the paragon of humanity, Jesus illustrated the highest standards of living spiritual principles in the prophetic illustrations of his life and ministry. Certainly, God did not record the symbolic dimensions of the design of the Tabernacle or the Jerusalem Temple, wherein Jesus stood when he spoke the words of John 2:19, without purpose. This perspective of John 2:19, depicts a prophecy of Jesus Christ in the Jerusalem Temple, representing this temple of stone and the bride of Israel in his physical body, that he laid down for Israel and all mankind in his crucifixion at Golgotha. Thus the plans of the Temple and Tabernacle are blueprints that Christ fulfilled in his ministry to Israel and all mankind. As we note the Phi Ratios in the structure of the human body, so we can see their pinnacle in Christ the head of the nation of Israel and the Church of Christian believers.

Thus it is with heightened interest that we point out the following ratios of the Phi proportion in the human body. Below we have two versions of Vitruvian Man, the first in Figure E, depicting the 17 various examples of Phi ratios in the human body. The Second in Figure F, shows the ideal man in relation to red and blue squares of the golden rectangle ground plans of the Temple and Tabernacle. The Third in Figure G depicts added examples of the Phi Ratio in the Human body.

  • The human head forms a golden rectangle;.
  • The mouth and nose are each placed at golden sections of the distance between the eyes and the bottom of the chin.
  • Whole body height / head to fingertips = Phi;
  • Top of head to fingertips / head to navel and elbows = Phi;
  • Top of head to navel and elbows / head to pectorals and inside top of arms = Phi;
  • Top of head to navel and elbows / width of shoulders = Phi;
  • Top of head to navel and elbows / length of forearm = Phi;
  • Top of head to navel and elbows / length of shinbone = Phi;
  • Top of head to pectorals / top of head to base of skull = Phi;
  • Top of head to pectorals / width of abdomen = Phi;
  • Length of Forearm / length of hand = Phi;

length of finger knuckles/length of hand=phi

This display shows the Intelligent Design of the human body by the Hand of the Almighty Creator in His Omniscient Wisdom. All these aspects of the Phi Ratio in the design of the human body work together to make the some greater than its parts, so that we can see why many consider the human body the pinnacle of Creation. God made the human body to house human life, in body, soul and spirit, first in Adam and Eve, and ultimately the only begotten Son of God-Jesus Christ. This brings us to the design of the genetic code of human Life, DNA, which is the Creator’s signature as the Life-Giver [John 5:6, 17:3] as seen in the Four Kingdoms of Life on Earth.

DNA [the following research is found on Wikipedia and is suggested for further study]

Each cycle of the DNA molecule measures 34 angstoms long by 21 angstroms wide. 34 and 21 are Fibonacci numbers. The ratio of 34/21 is a more accurate approximation of phi, since it is further into the Fibonacci series than the previous examples of 3 and 5. Jean-claude Perez suggested there is a strong link between DNA and golden ratio in 1991,[1] then later in 1997 in his book l’ADN décrypté[2]. His work shows that relative proportions of nucleotides within coding DNA sequences like genes or RNA strings are governed by specific Fibonacci and Lucas number sets. This discovery was validated particularly on all known HIV and SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus) retroviruses whole genomes with Professor Luc Montagnier (the discoverer of HIV virus) which called the discovery a “DNA supracode[3].

DNA supracode is revealed by computing sets called “resonances” within any DNA sequence: specific nucleotide clusters like FFF (Fibonacci Fibonacci Fibonacci), LLL (Lucas Lucas Lucas), FFL (Fibonacci Fibonacci Lucas) or LFF (Lucas Fibonacci Fibonacci). An example of elementary FFF resonance: 144 contiguous TCAG bases contain exactly 55 bases T and 89 bases A or C or G. This kind of screening is processed along the DNA sequence, for all possible Fibonacci/Lucas combinations, and for all possible values (example here 144 89 and 55 are 3 consecutive Fibonacci numbers). Then there appear many “resonances”. For example, in HIV whole genome, long of about 9000 bases, there are more than 50,000 significant Fibonacci/Lucas resonances. The longer resonances (several hundred resonances) are overlapping about 2/3 of the whole HIV genome (6765 bases which is a Fibonacci number). 4

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Biblical Astronomy of the Phi Ratio in the Temple/Tabernacle of Israel which is coming this way soon!
