The Structure of the Hebrew Menorah and the Pi ratio.

This blog post is an expansion on my original study called “The Biblical Cosmology of the Hebrew Menorah” on my website. The first study focused more on the history of astronomy and cosmology, with an emphasis on the Precession of the Equinoxes, and the potential impact of a Biblical Cosmology. This current study shifts the focus to a greater emphasis on the Biblical aspects of the Menorah’s structure, and the implications of this structure. I am including the introduction to the original study along with some of the mathematical aspects of the first study, mainly pertaining to the structure of the Menorah and the Pi ratio.

The traditional concept of the history of cosmology reads as a timeline of the “discoveries” of the greatest scientists. Men like Ptolemy, Galileo, Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Einstein and Hubble are the shining lights of scientific progress, and certainly human science owes these men much. According to conventional history, the idea of a heliocentric “universe” or solar system, originated in ancient Greece, specifically Aristarchus of Samos back in the second century BC. This idea however, did not catch on in a big way until Copernicus, who while reviewing some of Aristarchus’ ideas, seized upon this concept and ran with it. He did this at his own peril due to the prevailing worldview of the time, especially that of the Roman Catholic Church, based on a geocentric view of the solar system espoused by Ptolemy, that held sway in intellectual and religious circles for over 1500 years. The graphic below from Harmonica Macrocosmica [A. Cellarius, Amsterdam 1660] 1 depicts a Sun centered, Copernican view of the cosmos.

This article on Biblical cosmology depicts the idea of a heliocentric “universe” predated the Second Century BC and Aristarchus, by at least 1300 years, and its genuine roots are found in the OT Scriptures. From a historical perspective, this is a potentially radical statement, sure to have many critics however, once the following Biblical evidence is viewed in light of the principles of Biblical Astronomy, the foundations of this statement are inescapable. This article supplies an example of potential revisionist power that Biblical Astronomy can have on the conventional view of the History of Astronomy 

This study examines the celestial symbolism of the sacred Hebrew candlestick instituted under Moses and the Levite priests of the Old Testament. The Menorah is a divine piece of furniture that was kept in the holy place of the Hebrew Tabernacle, which contained the Altar of Incense, the Table of Shewbread and the Veil through which the Holy of the Holies was accessible. As a powerful symbol from God’s Word, the Menorah embodies an extensive Biblical cosmology, including both the Hebrew zodiac of twelve major constellations, with its thirty-six decans, and a heliocentric concept of the solar system, centuries before Homer wrote the Iliad and the Odyssey! God revealed the divine plans of the Tabernacle to Moses in the mid-2nd millennium BC, in the 14th century.

The various elements of the structure of this Candlestick follows the order of the Torah in the first five books of the Pentateuch. The structure of this sacred seven-branched Candlestick was said to embody the light of the Torah in seven categories or individual aspects of this Lamp as follows: 2

GENESIS 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” As we will see below, the sevenfold pattern of the Menorah embodies the Creator’s spiritual and temporal order as the Creator’s three-fold light is shed in Creation, evident on multi-levels in God’s Word, and the culture of Israel, including their mathematical, astronomical and religious aspects. A primary area where the mathematical and astronomical aspects of the Menorah structure intersect is seen in Judean Timekeeping

2. The Seven Lamps of the Menorah supported by its seven Branches, shed their light kindled by the High Priest by burning the pure Olive oil, symbolizing the anointing of the holy spirit. [Ex. 27:21, 1Sam. 3:3]

The ancient Biblical truths of the Almighty Creator God, Who rested on the 7th day, defined division of time, based on the Creation WeekGod’s Creation of the Sun, Moon and Stars to mark signs, seasons, days and years, divided and separated between the light and darkness of these heavenly bodiesproviding a universal temporal order for the earth. The Seasons and appointed times [moed] depict the holy feasts when man was to recognize special calendar times ordained by the Almighty, according to a mandate from heaven, to honor God’s Covenant relationship with man. These sacred Spring and Fall feasts relate to the sevenfold Menorah Branch structure seen in Fig. 2 below.

Figure 2. The Menorah and the Hebrew Feasts and Holy Days.

The standard order of Creation Week is inherent in Genesis 1-2. This Creation Week set the Sabbath pattern, found in the 7 x 4=28; Lunar MansionsThe transition from the end of one lunar phase to commencement of the next lunar phase is a most revered calendar unit across world cultures. In this way, God set aside the Sabbath Day as holy, consecrating the Sabbath in Israel for all time, which is a big reason why Israel has abided by a lunar calendar. We also find historical recognition of the influence of this seven-fold pattern in various septenary units of measurement. The Egyptian Royal cubit was composed of 7 hands or 28 fingers, as a standard cubit, with a 7th hand added. In truthGen. 1:1 has 7 Hebrew words with a total of 28 letters. By dividing 28 times the product of the letters by seven times, the product of the words, a calculation of the Pi ratio results. 4 This is a practical reckoning from the ancient world seen below, with astronomical and calendar applications. “According to a septenary system of reckoning, the circumference of a circle was considered 22/7 of the circle’s diameteras an approximation of the Pi ratio=3 1/7 or 3.142857, which is still applied as an adequate calculation for many engineering problems today.” 5

The following information comes from Leo Tavares and his website on Mathematical Monotheism, [https://sites.google.com/site/mathematicalmonotheism/the-genesis-1-1-mirror-code]. Since the Hebrew Alphabet is alpha-numeric, where every letter in their alphabet is also a specific number, below are the “numerical values of the 22 letters in the Biblical Hebrew alphabet, as they relate to Genesis 1:1: 

  GENESIS 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth 

Thus the numeric values of these seven Hebrew words are as follows

913 + 203 + 86 + 401 + 395 + 407 + 296 37 × 73 

A note from Tavares on his site on #37 is; “For the sum of the Fibonacci numbers indexed to the first 37 decimal digits of Phi (after the decimal point) = 401.” This shows a relation between the Pi and Phi ratios, that we have previously illustrated in various blog posts. 

Not only does the center word value of Genesis 1:1 stand out as its only PRIME word value, it stands out as its SHORTEST word. In fact, it is made up of the first and the last letters of the Hebrew Alphabet (the Aleph and the Tav). As God is the FIRST and the LAST in (Isaiah 44:6): This verse in Isaiah of 7 Hebrew words read as follows: 

ISAIAH 44:6 “I am the FIRST, and I am the LAST; and beside me there is no God 

Since the Creator God, Almighty fittingly is set in the center of these 7 words like, the central candle of the Menorah between the other six candles, [Rev. 1:20] this highlights the Biblical teaching that God is the FIRST and LAST (Isaiah 44:6): 

ALEPH + TAV = 401 

This reveals an internal code of mirror symmetry in Genesis 1:1 that the sum of the Prime Factors of the three words to the LEFT of 401 yields the same value as the Prime Factors to the RIGHT of 401. Below are the Prime Factors of the Genesis 1:1 word values:

   

913 = 11 × 83
203 = 7 × 29
86 = 2 × 43 

 401 = 401 

 395 = 5 × 79
407 = 11 × 37
296 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 37 

 LEFT PRIME FACTOR SUM: 

(11 + 83) + (7 + 29) + (2 + 43) = 175 

RIGHT PRIME FACTOR SUM: 

(5 + 79) + (11 + 37) + (2 + 2 + 2 + 37) = 175 

LEFT/RIGHT PRIME FACTOR SYMMETRY: 

       175  (401)  175 

As God is the FIRST and the LAST in (Isaiah 44:6): The numerical value of the seven Hebrew words in this passage is as follows: 

  61 + 557 + 67 + 265 + 162 + 61 + 86 =    1259 

This number is directly tied to 401 through the mathematics of a Circle. How? Aside from the fact that the numerical value of “ISAIAH” = 401, a Circle with a circumference of 1259 units yields a diameter of 401 units, according to the Pi formula. 

THE CIRCLE OF THE FIRST AND THE LAST 

  

“I am the FIRST, and I am the LAST; and beside me there is no God” (Isaiah 44:6) = 1259 

DIAMETER = 401 units 

  “ISAIAH” = 401 

FIRST + LAST Hebrew letters = 1 + 400 = 

             401 

CENTER word value of Genesis 1:1 = 1 + 400 = 

             401 

The Aleph and the Tav are the FIRST/LAST letters of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. The PRIME FACTOR SUM of the 22 Hebrew letter values points right back to “The Circle of The First and The Last” that we just saw. Remarkably, it yields the PRIME ORDER of 1259. 6 

The Pi ratio of the first and last letters of the Hebrew Alphabet also correspond to the Alpha/Omega of the first and last signs of the Hebrew Mazzaroth, as seen in the Great Sphinx. 

This practical reckoning of the pi ratio also relates to the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, including 7 vowels, providing a linguistic and mathematical blueprint for Israel. As with all language systems, the Hebrew alphabet is a system of writing expressing a language’s sounds, both consonants and vowels, by
means of 
single letters. Alphabets can function to move beyond outer appearances, and access deeper meanings in reality. Alphabets embody the presence of the infinite within the finite. Since the Creator spoke all Creation into reality, the Almighty chose the Hebrew language and Semitic culture as the primary carrier and access point for in-depth concepts leading the presence of God within His Holy Word, and fellowship in His Temple. This includes a key function of the alphabet; to enable the seeker to experience spiritual growth processes in fellowship with his Maker, via a series of accessible, substantive and systematic images, whereby the Almighty chose to reveal Himself.

This correlates to the structure of the Menorah which contains a total of 22 cups; on each branch [6×3=18], plus four cups on the central servant branch [18+4=22]. This corresponds to the first 22 words of Deut. 1:1;

Deut. 1:1 These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab

We find this structure laid out also in the 11 fruits of the Menorah linked to the first 11 words of Exodus 1:1;

Ex.1:1 Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob 

There are also 9 flowers at the top of each branch before the Lamps, [Num. 8:4] built into the Menorah, which correlate to the first 9 words of Leviticus 1:1;

Levi. 1:1 And the Lord called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

As the Father of Lights the Almighty shed His spiritual light as it translated in the physical realm so that it would register to the human senses. The Electro-magnetic light spectrum that registers to human vision is depicted below. This electromagnetic spectrum is generally divided into seven sectorsin order of decreasing wavelength and increasing energy and frequency.

Gen, 1:4-5
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. We must remember what John 1:5 tells us about the relationship between light and darkness; 

And the light [God] shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

In the book Jesus Christ is not God, regarding John 1:5, V.P.W stated; “The clause in verse 5 is a general rather than a specific statement regarding light and darkness, it does not refer to a specific lime in the past, in the present or in the future, but rather it is making a general statement about all time. Darkness is the absence of Light. Light, heat and all forms of energy are measured in terms of the positive never the negative. The negative is the absence of the positive. Even from a scientific viewpoint there is no way darkness can comprehend light since darkness is the absence of lightThat which does not exist cannot overcome that which exists. 7 

The Hebrew script, is a consonantal system with 22 characters, as part of a family of alphabets, formalized around the same time as early Greek, with letters taking a varied form. For example, Resh, phonetically, equal to the ‘R, is similar to a lower case Roman ‘reach letter with its own definition. One meaning of Resh is “poverty,” [Prov. 10:15]. Lucifer prospered at God’s Right Hand, but when this was not good enough for him, he became desolate in opposition to the Almighty, and was “plucked up” and cast away. Talk about a major “pluck up,” that has to be the biggest of all! This generally fits the narrative surrounding Job 38:12-15, as Lucifer was cast out of heaven, and rejected from his former angelic glory. [Isa. 14:12-20, Ezek. 28:12-19] 

Next in the Hebrew alphabet we encounter the letter Bet. History tells us that Bet is one of seven “double letters,” each of which has two pronunciations, two meanings, as well as two applications: a positive, and negativeSince the 7 vowels of the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, function as both a vowel and a consonant, we find two immediate applications for these double letters. “They also have 2 possible sounds, but only 3 of the seven are retained in modern Hebrew. Three of the rest are apparently used only by a few, and the double of the remaining one, Resh, is said to have been lost, supporting the narrative above related to Job 38:12-15. The 7 “double letters” have either a “hard” or “soft” pronunciation. The hard pronunciation is indicated by Dagesh; a (dot) in the center of the letter. The 2-fold usage of these seven “double letters” in Ecc. 3:1-8 comprise 7 polarized sets, each portrayed by one of these “doubles,” forming a unique figure that could be classified as a specialized acrosticBet is itself a word meaning “within” and “house.” Metaphorically, it depicts a mouth, a house and the interior of man, symbolizing internalized action.” 8

This meaning for Bet, of the interior of man, implies human freewill choice, that results from internal deliberationspoken into action externally. This relates not only to the 7 polarized sets [Ecc. 3], as people chose daily actions within the ranges of human activity reflected within these 14 pairs. Also, Bet as a “house,” is intriguing in light of the truth that these 7 stars; [Pleiades] are the angels of the 7 churches, since a church is considered the house of God, the dwelling place of His people, in the body of Christ, [Rev. 1:201 Cor. 6:19-20]. As the figure above also relates not only to the 7 spirits of God, that reside before God’s Throne in Heaven, [Rev. 4:5] but also the 7 Old Testament manifestations of the spirit, as seen in Isa. 11:1-2 and Figure below, reflected in the Menorah in the Earthly Temple and Tabernacle. 

In Figure 4 below the Menorah with each of the three branches functioning as a double with each of the seven companion OT Manifestations of the Spirit that emerge from the Holy Spirit of the Lord, on each side of the Central Servant BranchThis center branch depicts Jesus Christ the Light of the World, as the suffering servant branch who enlightens the world, [Ps. 119:105, John 15:5].

The Menorah’s height excluding the lamps was also 17 handbreadths high [17 Tefachim+1 including the base] which also corresponds to the first 17 words of Numbers 1:1.
.
Num. 1:1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
.
Leo Tavares tells us:
The Bible details in Exodus 25:31-35 how God commanded the Israelites to make a Menorah made of pure gold, which was a lampstand with 7 branches (a CENTER branch and 3 united pairs of branches). This Biblical passage consists of 324 Hebrew letters (or 18 × 18 letters). It follows that we can represent these Hebrew letters as an 18 × 18 Matrix. When we do this, we find that the Ordinal number values of the Hebrew letters form a perfect shape of a Menorah yielding a sum of 999: 10 

 

MENORAH = 999 

As we compare this Ex. 25 text to the Standard word values of the 7 Hebrew words in Genesis 1:1 that also forms a perfect Menorah, we find some interesting parallels. 

 GENESIS 1:1 MENORAH 

Genesis 1:1 (913 + 203 + 86) + (401) + (395 + 407 + 296) 

 401 + (9 × 9 × 9) = (913 – 296) + (407 – 203) + (395 – 86) 

Exodus 25:31-40

31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. 32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: 33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick. 34 And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers. 35 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick. 36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. 37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it. 38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold. 39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. 40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

Verse 37 indicates the purpose of the lamps of the Menorah, “that they may give light…’ It is noteworthy that this is the same purpose of the celestial luminaries stated in Genesis 1:14-16. Interestingly, the word for “lights” in the firmament [Gen. 1:14, 16: *H216maor] is the same word used in reference to the lamps of the Menorah, (Exodus 20:27, 35:14). Moreover, the same Hebrew word that refers to the Menorah’s individual lamps, also refers to the individual celestial lights of the Sun and Moon in Gen. 1:16. Thus we have a perfect correspondence between the purpose not only of the individual celestial lights and each of the Menorah’s lamp’s, to shed light upon the Earth. The emphasis with a Sun-centered system is placed on the Light of God. God’s Light is the Source of Life on Earth, even as God is the Source of Light. The celestial lights support this order from the Hand of the Creator.

Genesis 1:14-16
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

  Since the same Hebrew words are used in reference to both the luminaries of the firmament and the lamp-stand of the Tabernacle, we are wise to notice the details of the Menorah’s celestial symbolism 

Here we find Biblical evidence in the Menorah regarding the Hebrew zodiac, structured as the earliest known heliocentric model, as seen in the Menorah Solar System, far ahead of Aristarchus of Samos
(270 BC), who 
was the first of the ancient Greeks to re-submit the idea of a Sun centered cosmos. With the Son of God and light of the world embodied in Jesus Christ as the central Servant Branch of the Menorah and Hebrew zodiac, we see the original roots for a Sun-centered solar system that Copernicus gets credit for, despite the position of antagonism in the Roman Catholic Church centuries after his death. This idea was first established with the Hebrew Menorah, [Ps. 19] that was structured on a celestial plan of the ancient solar system of seven planets, with luni-solar cycles and the Sun as the center candlestick [Rev.1:20], always enlightening the Earth with a heliocentric viewpoint.

Both Philo and Josephus were early observers who provided context for the Menorah’s rounded branches, associating them with larger astronomical concerns. This approach hearkens back to a link with the lamps of the lampstand and the planets that first appears with the prophet Zechariah already during the sixth century B.C., who described the five visible planets, and the Sun and the Moon, as the “eyes of YHWH:” 

These seven are the eyes of YHWH, which range through the whole earth. [Zech. 4:18] 

In (Figure 5.) below we see the first candlestick, or Menorah in the form of what James Strong has called a “stylized tree.” Strong gives his own description of Exodus 25:33 quoted below:

Ex. 25:33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.”

Strong’s geometric synopsis of this verse states:

Image result for 7 Spirits of God Colors

It will be perceived that each section of the semicircles of which these lines are the radii is composed of two members: the shank (a plain tube) and the bulb (or swell), and that each has a third part or base (a circular double flange, as a means of connection, hence an actual joint) only where it is united to a different kind of piece; i.e., at the bottom and top of the central shaft and of the six arms, including the intersections of the shaft with the arms.”11 [emphasis mine]

Figure 5. The Hebrew Menorah. 12

central shaft and of the six arms

  When we apply what we have already seen in the Biblical teaching of the Sun’s dual symbolism, to the Menorah, then it takes on a new light, associating the Sun not only with the solar system, but also the circular zodiac. The very structure of the Menorah shows its central shaft as the foundation of the candle, since it holds the main light as the centerpiece of the candlestick. All the branches of the candlestick are attached to the central shaft, even as they obtain their light from the main candle. This pattern is mirrored in the solar system as the planets and moons do not generate their own light, but reflect the light of the Sun, in their orbits. We find not only the order of the solar system reflected here but also that of the ecliptic in 12 Constellations. This is evident in the semicircular pattern based on the pi ratio. By expanding on Strong’s analysis of the Menorah this comes to light. In Strong’s smaller geometric model of the Menorah, we note bulbs on the six branches of the candlestick that are projections of the central bulb, from whence all the radiating lines of the central light emanate. These projections of the central light on the six branches, (five naked eye planets and the Sun & Moon) depict how these luminaries reflect the Sun’s light in their individual orbits upon the Earth. This system shines light on the temporal periods and orbits of each naked-eye planet in our solar system, in relation to the Sun’s light. This is revealed first in the context of the mathematics of the 7×7=49 standard, a primary trait of light in Creator’s celestial order.

The symbolism of the candlestick also extends beyond our solar system to include the circle of 12 signs of the zodiac. Strong’s emphasis above on the geometric design of the Menorah, exhibits the Hebrew zodiac as in Genesis 49, with Jacob’s prophesies over his twelve sons. We should note that these lines noted by Strong as “the radii of the semi-circle,” reflecting the symbolic light of the world, if extended into a complete circle, the radii would divide it into 12 equal parts of 360 degrees of the circle according to the pi ratio. We can be safe in making this conceptual leap in the implied design of the Menorah, because we have already seen this pattern in the Temple pillarsJachin and Boaz. This makes the Menorah the most complete piece of the furniture of the Temple and Tabernacle, acting as a celestial symbol of the structure of both our solar system and the zodiac. It is the most complete because it is the third aspect we have observed that utilizes the pi ratio, following on the great Brazen Sea and the Temple pillars. These aspects of The Celestial Symbolism of the Temple and Tabernacle utilize the pi ratio to depict the Hebrew calendar of 12 months of 30 days in the sacred 360-day year used by Noah. The Menorah goes beyond this, embracing the planets in a heliocentric model of the ancient solar system, long before the Greek Aristarchus of Samos proposed it in the second century BC.

The Menorah’s implicit use of the pi ratio incorporates the previous usage of this principle in the Brasen Sea and the Temple pillars, while adding the symbolism of the heliocentric solar system to these previous applications, all incorporated into a single model. This systematic usage of the Pi Ratio in the sacred furniture, altars and Pillars of the Temple and Tabernacle, are supported in the consistent application of this mathematical principle as illustrated above in the Pi mathematics of the circle as seen in the practical reckoning of Pi in the 22 letters and 7 vowels of the Hebrew Alphabet applied to the Menorah structure of [Genesis 1:1 and Isa. 44:6], that we saw related to the central number of 401 in Gen. 1:1, where the Circle with a circumference of 1259 units yields a diameter of 401 units, according to the Pi formula.

This consistent, orderly, progressive and systematic usage of the Pi ratio in the architecture and design of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle, and its sacred elements and furniture, illustrates the purposeful application of this advanced mathematical principle, far in advance of human science awareness or application. This shows the Word of the Almighty Creator as the true Source for these and other advanced mathematical and geometric concepts that were applied not only in Sacred Architecture, but in the Intelligent Design of all Creation itself. As we continue our quest to seek out and expand tangible scientific evidence of the awesome works at the Hand of our Creator and Heavenly Father, the distant thunder echoing in our ears will become an undeniable storm of cascading truths overwhelming any credible opposition, until the ultimate realization and witness of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of the Almighty Heavenly Father of Lights, to whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. The Sooner this realization comes, the greater benefit to the recipient.

God Bless,

Comments Off on The Structure of the Hebrew Menorah and the Pi ratio.

Witness of the Great Pyramid in Job 38 and Rosh Hashanah, [Part 1b].

In Part 1a of this blog in July 2020, we noted how the Celestial signs marking the birth of Christ took place in the two years between 3-1 BC, marked previously by a series of signs in 5 BC. along with the Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunctions of 7-6 BC.  We find similar patterns in the signs of Sept. 2017, as they were presaged 2 years earlier with similar Heavenly signs in 2015. It is fitting that we should recognize these signs of Christ’s birth in this month’s September blog, in light of the 19th anniversary of 9-11-2001, which took place also on the date of the birth of Christ, on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. This also fits with the Rosh Hashanah Feast this month on the Hebrew Calendar, that also arose with the August-Sept. 2017 signs. This month’s blog links the key content of Job 38 to prominent activities of the Dog-Star Sirius related to Orion, and the Bibilical truths that emerge from Job, the oldest book in Biblical canon.

The celestial scenario described in Job 38:12-15 coincides with a regular celestial event that was also delineated in some of the oldest texts in history, known in ancient Egypt as the Pyramid Texts. These Pyramid Texts, said to date from at least 2300 BC, actually describe an observable stellar event witnessed before 3000-2000 BC: the crossing of the Sun disc on the Milky Way, moving eastwards reaching the zodiacal constellation of Leo at the time of the summer solstice, while the star Sirius rose heliacally at the start of the Nile flooding (the date of this conjunction was circa 2780 BC). The prominence of the Sun in Leo at the summer solstice on the eastern horizon while Sirius is at a low point on the horizon, symbolically reflects a juxtapositon of spiritual power as we will see. Annually, the rising of Sirius took place since antiquity, documented in the 7th month of the Hebrew Calendar on Aviv 28, during the Barley harvest in Israel.1 In many ancient star religions of the world, the star Sirius was considered the Sun behind the sun, or the spiritual light behind the physical light of the illusory material world. This was reflected in ancient Egypt as the star Sirius identified with Isis the female goddess with Osiris and Horus of the Egyptian trinity.

The mathematician and historian of scientific thought Otto E. Neugebauer explains the ancient Egyptian system of decans in his 1969 text, The Exact Sciences in Antiquity. His description is fascinating and eye-opening, for those attuned to the system of knowledge encoded in the constellations and heavenly cycles in the Star Myths of the world.

“Professor Neugebauer details how the heliacal rising of selected stars located along the zodiac band would help observers in ancient Egypt [Heliopolitan priests] to know when the dawn would be arriving at any given time of the year.

Just prior to sunrise, as the eastern sky begins to grow lighter and lighter (from deep velvet black to dark blue to lighter and lighter blue), stars arising high enough above the horizon to be briefly observed were soon  swallowed up by the light of the rising day-star. [Job 38:11-16]

This is the phenomenon known as the “heliacal rising” of a star. As the earth proceeds on its orbit, a star will get further and further “ahead” of the sun, so that it is above the horizon for longer and longer portions of the night (or early morning) before the day-star arises and drowns out the stars.

Next, Professor Neugebauer explains that the Egyptians called the star in its “heliacal rise” as the decan for that particular ten-day stretch each year. But, as it rises a bit earlier and earlier, it will be higher and higher in the eastern sky when the sun finally rises — which means that eventually a new star below it will be the star of heliacal rise at that time, and the previous decan will retire from the role until next year:

It is this sequence of phenomena that led the Egyptians to measure the time of night by means of stars (or groups of nearby stars) which we now call decans.” 3

In the idolatrous star religion of ancient Egypt, they believed the “sun behind the sun” or the parent sun would align with the dog-star Sirius, and one of the alignments built into the Great Pyramid star shafts reflected this so that the light of the Dog-star aligned with the Queen’s chamber star shaft at the construction epoch of the Pyramid. Any discussion of the construction rationale of the Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, includes many elements, but one of the key influential theses has been the so-called “Orion Correlation Theory,” which appears to have inspired the Pyramid ground pattern for the format of the three major Giza Pyramids. This theory says the three stars of Orion’s belt provided the pattern for the layout of the 3 primary Giza Pyramids, which includes the smallest pyramid Menkaure, and its offset location from the axis of the two greater Pyramids, as seen in Figure B below.

Could there have been a preexistent master-plan for the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, precluding the massive Pharonic egos required to expend the effort, time and resources needed to build these monumental edifices to glorify the persons and reigns of these Pharaohs, assumed in the “Tomb Theory” of the Giza Pyramids? Even Pyramid scholars and historians going back centuries who believed the Pyramids were sepulchures, agree that there is no proof of anyone ever entombed in the Great Pyramid. In fact, the only part of the Great Pyramid that resembles a coffin is found in the King’s Chamber, at the top end of the Grand Gallery, is lidless, missing a royal inscription or ornamental insignia, unlike other coffers made for a king. But it is the dimensions of this unique “coffer” that just happen to match the cubic capacity of the Ark of the Covenant in the Temple and Tabernacle of Isreal, built centuries prior to Israel’s captivity in Egypt, long before the Ark’s dimensions were revealed by God, to Moses on Mt. Sinai, that enthrall us. This not only, shows the divine source of revelation for both the Great Pyramid and the Ark of the Covenant, but also links the two in Christ, of whom the Great Pyramid witnesses to [Isa. 19:19-20] and who symbolizes the Covenant with the Jews and Gentiles as he embodies the Passover Lamb, and perfect sacrifice of all mankind. Beyond this, the amazing lidless granite coffer encodes other sacred measures that could only be known by the Almighty Creator. When for example, we take double the perimeter of this Granite Coffer, multiplied by 10 to the 8th power, we get the mean radius of the Sun; [427, 316 miles]. Also, the Great Pyramid’s height multiplied by 10 to the 9th power=the Earth’s mean solar orbital radius, or the average distance between the Earth and Sun, [91,848,500 miles]. 4 As Jesus embodies the Pyramid’s capstone as the light of the world-[the Sun in Ps. 19] he enlightens the Earth with all its inhabitants and life systems.

This juxtaposition of spiritual powers are none other than The Almighty Creator and Father of Lights as opposed to the prince of darkness. These ultimate forces of good and evil are revealed for those with eyes to see in the 38th chapter of the Book of Job, which is a primary topic in this month’s blog. An aspect of these contending powers is seen clearly in the decan Orion, in its brightest belt star Al Nitak. Recently, we found Al Nitak exactly on the meridian, at dawn the morning before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. In this blog we link the astronomical context of Job 38 not only to stellar observations in ancient Egypt, but the aforementioned scenario with the Feast of Trumpets 2017, also. The star Al Nitak is critical for one reason in the Orion Correlation Theory, since it mirrors the location of the Great Pyramid while the other two stars of Orion’s Belt also align with the two other main Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, seen in Figure B, above. With Al Nitak’s focus on the Great Pyramid, it also calls our attention to the Great Pyramid star shafts, since the Great Pyramid is the only edifice with multiple star shaft and passage alignments built into its structure, as we find in Figure C. below.

Figure C. Great Pyramid Passage Alignments on Rosh Hashanah 2017. 6

Daniel Matson reminds us about the all-important implications of the Christ angle. 7 At the moment Al Nitak is at meridian, Leo is in the east, [Celestial Sphinx] but more importantly the King star Regulus is precisely at the inclination of the Christ angle, aligned with the Ascending passage of the Great Pyramid in Fig. C. Thus, the Christ angle not only aligned with Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, [geographically] but also bisects Regulus [astronomically]. This draws our attention to the activities at the birth of Christ in Bethlehem in 3 BCConcurrent with this Ascending Passage alignment, we also have a Descending Passage alignment in the Pyramid, with Jupiter, the King Planet in Virgo, providing the elements of the Celestial Sphinx, as seen at Christ’s Birth. The year 2017 is the first year according to Matson, that Rosh Hashanah comes immediately after September 20th—when Al Nitak hits meridian precisely at dawn, while Regulus hits the Christ angle. 8

This shows Al Nitak as the wounded one-the suffering Lord making his sacrifice opposed to the coronation of the King star Regulus, in glory; foreshadowed in the Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunction near Christ’s birth. In this unique manner, the Great Pyramid points out the Jupiter-Regulus union of 3BC, with Christ angle alignments of it’s Ascending and Descending Passages, which we will see in greater detail later! The next years this alignment occurs are 2028 [2K year anniversary of Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection], and 2047- the 100 year anniversary of Isreal as a state. 9

head of a woman and body of a lion

We find these landmarks at the head and tail of the zodiac, which adds light to Dr. Martin’s observation that: “the woman Virgo is the Constellation of Headship for all twelve signs. The head position of Virgo is located within the last 10 degrees of Leo.”11 Virgo’s head is seen in Fig. D, just below & adjacent to the star Denebola in the tail of the Lion, unifying the circle of the zodiac. The Sphinx also unifies and establishes the Biblical canonical order of God’s written revelation, in the Bible’s earliest book of Job.

In analyzing the positioning of the stars, moon, and sun at the time of September 20, 2017, there was an added passage alignment in the Pyramid with Venus in conjunction with Regulus at this time. Venus, the “Morning Star” was at this moment, aligned with Leo’s “King Star,” precisely at the Christ angle. 12 This tells us the position of the Morning Star’s authority in the First Heaven and Earth, included in the seat at God’s Right Hand over the angel’s. This is only part of the current authority inherited in the Lordship of Christ seen in the King star-Regulus, the ascendant Bright and Morning Star. [Revelation 2:28, 2 Peter 1:19]

At the dawn of Rosh Hashanah 2017, Jupiter was at the precise Christ angle in the opposite scenario as the day before. Jupiter is below the horizon at 26.3 degrees. Instead of the Sun just starting to break the horizon, the sun’s disk is fully risen, still on the horizon. In Matson’s words “this event is truly prime of the morning before Rosh Hashanah. So Rosh Hashanah is directly linked to this incident of the Christ angle. On New Year’s Day for Kings, the planet of the Messiah (“His star” of the Magi) is at the angle as reflected in the Great Pyramid. It is truly the dawn of a new era. (It can also be looked at in another way. Jupiter [King Planet] will be at the Christ Angle in the western sky at the announcement of Rosh Hashanah the evening of September 20.)13 Just as at Christ’s birth, when Jupiter the King planet crowned Regulus the King star in a triple union starting 3 days after Christ’s birth in 3 BC, fore-shadowing the king’s coronation in glory. This reference to Christ’s glory in his Second Coming is certainly the subject of these signs, but since the celestial signs precede the events, we are directed to the replay of these celestial signs in 2028.

If a star navigator program is available, set it to Cairo (or more precisely to the Great Pyramid) for 5:42:24.333 am, on September 20, 2017 as Matson says to verify it. This is very precise and a day either way will put the scenario out of alignment in every way. But as will be seen later, there are more alignments to discuss to demonstrate the fact that the Pyramids are the products of planning by the true God who is beyond time and space.

We find here in Job’s Biblical reference to Orion, the 2nd of three in Job [9:9, 38:31] also [Amos 5:8], evidence showing Orion’s initial prominence as the figurative light of heaven. If Orion’s link to Sirius (the Dog-star) is completed, then we find the stars of Orion’s belt symbolizing Lucifer’s choral units of angels under his domain, girt about his loins. This description of Orion’s loins figuratively resembles the portrait of the king’s glory in Ezek. 1:26-28. Lucifer as the angel of light in his first estate, had dominion over the angels in the dawn of time. Once Lucifer fell, his role at God’s right hand as the “light of heaven” was stripped from him and held in abeyance, to be transferred and superseded in the rising of the daystar, who washed out the brilliance of the fallen morning star with his own Sunrise, symbolized in the Heliacal Rising of Sirius.

Matson’s primary error was using this data to predict the return of Christ on the dates of these signs in 2017. His theory stated that 2017 was the year for the start of the Great Tribulation, with the start of The Covenant on Nov. 19, 2017 so that 2,520 days are allowed until the Day of Atonement 2024. 14

Christ’s first coming was for sacrifice and death, which makes sense if it is the descending passageway, symbolizing the grave, but Christ rose from the grave conquering death for us all, as seen in the empty coffer in the Great Pyramid’s King’s Chamber.

We should also recall the Great Sphinx aligned above the eastern horizon, with Leo the lion. This alignment scenario with Orion at meridian, embodies Christ’s sacrificial sufferings with Leo the constellation of (the conquering Lion) in the east, in his glory. This serves to introduce us to the fascinating study that pulls together key elements from the ancient past with modern times, pointing to the birth and Return of Christ. By including the Sphinx’ eastern alignment in Leo and the Sun with the star Sirius in Heliacal rising, we find another image of the juxtaposition of the ascendant and fallen morning stars, as seen in Job 38.

In the history of ancient astronomy, and the heliacal rising of Sirius in particular, was sighted by the astronomer-priests of Heliopolis in very early dynastic times of ancient Egypt. It is not unreasonable to suppose, however, that observations began several centuries before the dynastic periods, even perhaps as far back as 5000 BC, as was shown by Jane B. Sellers for example, which agrees with the incept dates of the Great Sphinx. Thus we can adopt this remote date as a ‘common prototype’ for religious ideologies later formulated in the Pyramid Texts and, much later, in various astronomical texts. Herbert Lockyer was also well known for his early Egyptian studies and their knowledge of the precession of the equinoxes, as seen in the Dendera ZodiacLockyer believed that the Temple at Dendera was probably “rebuilt at least three times since 3733 BC; once in the reign of King Pepi I, [which Lockyer dates at 3233 BC] again by Thothmes III in 1600 BC, and finally by the Ptolemies about 100 BCAccording to Lockyer, the temple may have been previously directed at the star Dubhe, which ceased to be circumpolar about 4000 BC, and before that at gamma Draconis, that ceased to be circumpolar about 5000 BC.” 15

At that epoch the heliacal rising of Sirius (as seen from Heliopolis) took place near the 18 July Julian (2 weeks after summer solstice). At this time the sun was just entering Leo, the Lion constellation, and also that this constellation was fully risen, floating just above the NorthEastern horizon as this graphic of the sky shows in Skymap 2, below. 16 This is the sky imagery that was replayed on 9-23-17 in Leo with Sirius low and adjacent on the horizon also.

 Skymap 2: Eastern sky view just before dawn on 18 July c. 5000 BC as seen from Heliopolis at time of the Heliacal Rising of Sirius. Very few, if any have considered at all, the implications of Job 38:12-15 in regards to this heliacal rising of Sirius. As we include background research on these scriptures, we will review the work of Aron Pinker, whose work details a thorough literature review on this section of Job.

According to the abstract of Aron Pinker’s research analysis of Job 38:12-15, 17

“Exegetes usually approach vv. 12-15 from two different perspectives: the cosmological and the terrestrial. Some believe that this strophe alludes to astronomical bodies, which are visible in the morning and fade as the light brightens. Most view the strophe as describing the breaking of a new day, and the effect that the growing illumination has on the visibility of Earth’s features and the activity of the wicked upon it.”18

In Pinker’s literature review of this topic, he includes the views of various Biblical texts and theologians, of which we will note some of the principal contributors, along with my own selected input in Blue.

“Job 38:12-15
is the third strophe in God’s first response to Job (38:1-40:2). It appears after the strophe that describes the world’s creation (vv. 4-7), and the strophe that deals with divine control of the unruly waters (vv. 8-11).1   The third strophe deals with God’s description of the breaking of a new day on earth.”19

Although Pinker recognizes the general contextual structure of Job 38, he does not elaborate, and in this case, since the context is very supportive in unlocking the truths of this record, we will illustrate these points in greater detail. The general structure of Job 38 is built around God’s rhetorical questioning of Job, starting in Job 38:4;

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understandingWho hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon itWhereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or Who laid the cornerstone thereofWhen the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? [KJV]

Bullinger tells us that Job’s 38th Chapter has the most questions [40] when compared to all other chapters in the Bible. And Job as a Book has the most questions of any other Book of the Bible. 20 This is the Figure of Speech called Erotesis, or Interrogation.

The Almighty is making it clear that not only was He the only one around in and before the inception of all things, but doubtlessly, He was the Only One capable of laying the foundations of the earthOnly the Almighty Creator has the wisdom and power to bring the Earth into existence, out of nothing according to its unique standard of dimensions, and measurements which are all encapsulated in the Great Pyramid, like no other building in history. The earth’s dimensions contained in the model of the Great Pyramid include the numbers and specifications of the distance to the Sun, its mean radius, along with the mean radius of the earth’s orbit around the Sun. The Weight of the Pyramid is reflective of the earth’s mass, and its orientation to the stars reflecting the principles of Biblical Astronomy, and the design of the universe and our solar system, that only God could know. These are only a few of the ways that the Great Pyramid was built to embody our unique planet, that not only support the truths of the Almighty Creator as the only Source for all this Omniscient wisdom and Omnipotent power, but state the case with such force that no other plausible options comprehensively account for this state of affairs. This is upheld  in the next rhetorical question in v.5who hath stretched the line upon it?” The stretching the line or cord ceremony is found in ancient Egyptian texts going back to the First Dynasty, showing an astronomical essence to this ceremony that defined the axis of a new temple, or in this case, the Great Pyramid, which was derived from the alignment of the Great Pyramid to the North pole star Thuban-in Draco at the time of the Pyramid’s construction.

Since this ceremony defined the axis of the Great Pyramid, which is the most accurately oriented building in history, being aligned to true North with only 3/60 degree of error, which is incredible considering the Great Pyramid weighs nearly 6 million tons, with a footprint of 13 acres! 21 This definition of the astronomical axis of the Pyramid is what allowed the accurate placing of the 4 base cornerstones, which not only bear the foundations of the Great Pyramid, but also the earth’s foundations. This answers God’s rhetorical question to Job in v. 6 “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?” The truth that the Pyramid’s cornerstones were founded upon measurements derived from the Northern pole star at that time-Thuban of Draco tells us who was the astronomical center of Creation, embodied in Lucifer as the first Morning Star, and the archangel over all the choirs and cohorts of heavenly angels, who led them in songs of Praise in honor and worship of the Almighty in the First Heavens and Earth, [2Pet. 3:3-7]. Naturally, this refers to v. 7, where the morning stars sang together, with Godly designed and unified voice and purpose, referring to the lost glory of the fallen archangel’s first estate

The most incontrovertible evidence we have however, that we are indeed discussing the Great Pyramid here is found in v. 6 where God asks Who laid the cornerstone thereof? It is this singular stone, which is ultimately defined and embodied in Christ, that caps off the Great Pyramid and unifies the four cornerstones at the Pyramid’s base. Only the unique structure of a Pyramid has a fifth cornerstone at its pinnacle, which unifies and aligns the rest of the structure. This capstone was originally found in Lucifer when angels were the only created life forms apart from Almighty God Himself. But once iniquity was found in Lucifer, he was cast out of his favored seat at God’s right Hand, along with those angels he deceived. Now it is Jesus Christ who is the Chief Cornerstone, [Eph. 2:20] as the head of the spiritual body of his Church. [Heb. 1-2]

 

So as there are opposite Christ angles, it appears that the Pyramid and the Great Sphinx are maps of this event, [Celestial Sphinx]. This is evident because both the head of the woman-Virgo, and the body of the Lion-Leo forming the Sphimx are marked specifically by the Christ Angle built-into the Great Pyramid, attesting to the tandem witness of these megalithic monuments on the Giza Plateau. This also supports the concept of Giza as a master-plan, as we find the grand God-ordained purposes of each monument, as they prophesy of the birth and Return of Christ according to the sacred feasts and holy days of the Hebrew calendar. In this singular and unique way the Great Pyramid, the Great Sphinx with its causeways all oriented due east, and aligned on the specific stars and planets, tell the greatest story of history’s ultimate victory of the Lord Jesus Christ, verifying the Gospel in the Stars as seen in the Alpha and Omega signs of the Hebrew Mazzaroth.

The Revised English Bible [1990] for Job 38:12-15 reads as follows:

12 In all your life have you ever called up the dawn, or assigned the Morning its place?
13 Have you taught it to grasp the fringes of the earth and shake the Dog-star from the sky?
14 To bring up the horizon in relief as clay under a seal until all things stand out like the folds of a cloak?
15 When the light of the Dog-star is dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one? 

In J. A. Clines’ view, Though the Hebrew is not especially difficult, the meaning of this stanza is extremely problematic. … The strophe seems to be saying that when the morning has been given the command (v 12). 22 This is the only other Bible reference to the Son or Star of the Morning as seen in Isa. 14:12 which corroborates this concept.

Clearly, as Clines says, ויתיצבו “and they stand” is hard to fit into the context (KJV “and they stand as a garment” is not very intelligible). The plural is a difficulty, since there has been no plural since רשעים “wicked (?)” in v. 13, and one cannot see how the wicked would be standing [standing out-revealed from their cloak of darkness] like a garment.4

12 “Have you commanded the morning in your days and caused the dawn to know its place,
13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth and shake the wicked out of it?
14 It is changed as clay under the seal and stands forth as a garment.
15 From the wicked their light is withheld. The high arm is broken.

The previous plural reference to the “wicked” can refer to the host of the wicked that the serpent drew in his tail when he was cast out of heaven, that were revealed from their cloak of darkness, in the morning light. This would refer to the cloak or garment embodied in the wicked angels who accompanied Lucifer in his revolt against God. [Rev. 12, Ezek. 28:12-19]

The mention of a garment and the return to the wicked in verse 15 suggests that we have picked up once more the theme that evil-doers are restrained by daylight. [The laws of physics demand that the darkness flees from the light.] The shattering of the arm upraised for violence (15b) refers to the revolt in heaven of the Fallen Morning Star, which also accounts for the military context of the spiritual battle that began with the Original Sin of Lucifer’s revolt, and subsequent fall from his favored first estate position at God’s Right hand. [Comments mine]

Clines identifies the following problems: [http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2018/v31n1a10] 23

(iThematic consistency – One would have expected this strophe to deal only with cosmological matters, including the rendering of the Wicked as the Dog-Star in reference to Sirius, as is the case in vv. 4-38, and not to involve human beings. This difficulty is resolved when we understand the Double meaning of the “Wicked” vs. the “chief,” explained below.

(iiMoral language – The twofold mentioning of thewicked (רשעים) and the breaking of the upraised arm (וזרוע רמה תשבר) is surprising. This provides the context from which to understand the upraised arm as a reference to Lucifer’s revolt in his attempted coup against the Almighty, with his 1/3 of the angels whom he previously lead in praise to the glory of Almighty, God, [Job 38:7]. This spiritual battle still rages on today in human kingdoms.

Clines notes that “there is very little about humans in the whole of the Yahweh speeches, and even less about any moral government there may be of the world.”7

(iiiScribal abnormality – The ע of רשעים [wicked] is written with abnormal elevation. This suggests to Clines some hesitancy on the part of earlier scribes as to the appropriateness of this word in context. This is not hesitancy regarding this word, but points out the double meaning previously mentioned which is the key to unlocking the meaning of the context.

(ivCosmological and ethical interrelationship It is not clear how the cosmological text in this strophe (vv. 12-13a, 14) is related to the ethical acts described in the rest of the text (vv. 13b and 15). Once the angelic revolt lead by Lucifer with “upraised arm” is understood, the separation of God Who is all Good, and His Moral Government in the 1st Heavens and Earth, from the evil darkness of the enemy is clear, which also accounts for the juxtaposition of spiritual forces previously mentioned.

(vRare phrase – The phrase זרוע רמה is unique in the Tanakh. This “upraised arm,” is authentic when understood in light of the attempted spiritual coup suggests the possibility that it is not authentic.8

As we shall see in the following section additional difficulties can be identified.

The purpose of this study is to develop a new understanding of our strophe, which obviates the identified difficulties.

In vv. 12-15 the Septuagint seems to be taking a cosmological/terrestrial approach; Septuagint considers v. 14 and v. 15 as each being a separate question, the Vulgate turns only v. 13 into a separate question.

1 Ancient Versions and translations referenced below; [Septuagint, Targum, Latin Vulgate, Douay-Rheims translation, Peshitta, Revised English Bible, KJV]  

The Septuagint understands our strophe as referring to the creation of the Physical stars. The Septuagint renders vv. 12-15:

12Or did I order the morning light in thy time; and did the Morning Star then first see his appointed place? God asks Job if God ordered the morning light in thy time? -[referring to the time of men] The answer is NO, because the [Gen. 1] Creation Week record does not mention the Creation of angels [Morning Stars of vs. 4-7]. Even in the 2nd H&E the Sun, Moon and stars were not created till the 4th day, still prior to man’s creation. But when God created the angels, in the 1st Heaven & Earth, he installed Lucifer as the chief Archangel at the right hand of the Creator-in his appointed place. This agrees with Isa. 14:12 in calling Lucifer the Bright and Morning Star, with vs. 13-15 providing motivation [the 5 “I wills”] for raising his arm against the Almighty God.

13to lay hold of the extremities of the earth to cast out the ungodly out of it? 14Or didst thou take clay of the ground and form a living creature, and set it with the power of speech upon the earth? 15And hast thou removed light from the ungodly, and crashed the arm of the proud? God’s rhetorical questions to Job depict God as the only Creator, and the only God capable of defeating Lucifer’s spiritual coup attempt. It was this attempted spiritual coup that removed Lucifer and his 1/3 of the angels from the Light of God’s Presence, since the Sun, Moon and Stars did not exist yet.

The Septuagint assumes that in v. 12 the term הֲמִיָּמֶיךָ = “have you, in thy time” (Ἢ ἐπὶ σοῦ), apparently reading הממך; reads instead of MT 2nd person (צִוִּיתָ) the 1st person צִוִּיתִי = “did I order” (συντέταχα), which does not agree with יִדַּעְתָּ in the parallel colon; adds to בֹּקֶר = “morning” (πρωϊνόν) the word “light” (φέγγος); reads instead of MT the pi’el of ידע (יִדַּעְתָּ) the qal יָדַעְתָּ = “did see” (εἶδε); takes וְיִנָּעֲרוּ = “to cast out, or shake out” (ἐκτινάξαι); takes בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the extremities” (πτερύγων); תִּתְהַפֵּךְ כְּחֹמֶר = “take clay of the ground” (λαβὼν γῆν πηλὸν), paraphrasing; instead of MT חוֹתָם reads חַיָּתָם = “form a living creature” (ἔπλασας ζῶον); it is not clear how the Septuagint could derive from MT the translation “and set it with the power of speech upon the earth” (καὶ λαλητὸν αὐτὸν ἔθου ἐπὶ γῆς); וְיִמָּנַע ≠ “And hast thou removed” (φελεσ δ); has אוֹרָם = “light” (τ φς); and, renders תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “crashed” (συνέτριψας). This removing of the raised arm in revolt, corresponds to the casting down or shaking out of the Fallen Morning star seen in Sirius.

 The Targum seems to be reading in v.12b לְשַׁחַר = “to the dawn” (לקרצתא). The variant of v. 12a is more specific with regard to מִיָּמֶיךָ = “Were you in the days of the beginning” (הביומי בראשית הויתא), turning v. 12a into a twofold question: “Were you in the days of the beginning and did you…?”; it reads לִהְיוֹת וְצִוִּיתָ בֹּקֶר = “and did you command the morning to be” (ופקדתא למהוי צפר); it is also reading in v.12b מְקֹמוֹ מהו= “what its place was” (האן אתריה). It takes in v. 13a בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the borders” (בגדפי); וְיִנָּעֲרוּ = “and be shaken” (ויטלטלון). The variant of v. 13 has בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the borders” (בסטרא); adds “of Israel” (דישראל); and adds “rows” (דרא).

In v. 14 Targum renders תִּתְהַפֵּךְ = “It changes” (מתהפכא), using the participle instead of the imperfect; reads חוֹתָמָם = “their seal” (חותמא דילהון), though it is difficult to imagine that the Targum refers to the wicked; as וְיִתְיַצְבוּ = “and they (the wicked?) are made to stand” (ואתעדתון); and translates לְבוּשׁ = “a dirty garment” (כסו זהים), and renders לְבוּשׁ = “an empty garment.” Perhaps in reference to the already defeated nature of the fallen angels. Or, to the royal garments that Lucifer wore in his first estate with his angels, which he made filthy by his revolt. [Ezek. 28] These garments came with the place or position of the Morning Star in the 1st Heaven & Earth at God’s Right Hand, but were lost when iniquity was found in the Dog Star embodied in Sirius.

Finally, Targum understands in v. 15 that וְיִמָּנַע מִרְשָׁ עִ ים = “is hidden from the wicked” (ואתכסי מן רשיעיא); אוֹרָם =
The light of their breath” (נהור נשמתהון), adding נשמתהון; and וּזְרוֹעַ רָמָה תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “and the uplifted arm is broken” (ואדרע מרמא תתבר). A variant translation has וְיִמָּנַע מִרְשָׁ עִ ים = “Hidden from sinners” (ואתכסי מן חייביא); אוֹרָם = “And the light of the just” (נהוריהון דצדיקי), adding דצדיקי; and וּזְרוֹעַ רָמָה תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “and the arm of the proud is broken” (ואדרע דגיותניא אתברת).11

The Peshitta renders our strophe (except for v. 14) literally. It has:

12Have you commanded the dawn since your days began; or do you know the place of the morning13That it might take hold of the ends of the earth that the wicked might be thrown out of it? 14So that their bodies would be turned into clay, and be thrown into a heap. 15The light of the sinners shall be withheld, and the arm of the arrogant shall be broken.12

God asks Job if he commanded the dawn in his days. The Dawn here refers to the position of the Morning Star occupied by Lucifer first, but now by Jesus Christ as “light of the world.” We know the dawn refers to this position because in the next phrase of v. 12 , God asks Job if he knows the Place of the MORNING; 

The Vulgate presents a literal translation of the MT. According to the Douay-Rheims translation into English, it reads:

12Didst thou since thy birth command the morning, and show the dawning of the day its place? 13And didst thou hold the extremities of the earth-shaking them, and hast thou shaken the ungodly out of it14 The seal shall be restored as clay, and shall stand as a garment15From the wicked their light shall be taken away, and the high arm shall be broken. In v. 14a the rendering of the seal being restored, may refer to the to Godly protection that was violated in the destruction of the Creation of the 1st H&E, effected in the attempted spiritual coup, which was restored by The Creator in the 2nd Heaven & Earth, [Gen. 1:1-2]. Here we can see where the Covenants God set up in the 1 st H & E, violated by Lucifer, as the Morning Star, that he lost access to in the 2nd H & E, accept with Adam’s dominion of the kingdoms of the earth in Original Paradise, that fell to the Serpent in its temptation of Eve. Also, the seal reflects authority that came in Lucifer’s position of Chorus leader, as seen in his special clothing of [Ezek. 28:12-19], that he lost forever.

The Pyramid Texts of Ancient Egypt fit much better when we consider the heliacal rising of Sirius as the Dog-star is wiped out in the dawning sunrise in the brightening rays of the Sun’s, so the Dog Star is lost in the Sonrise. This is a perfect match not only with Otto Neugebauer’s description of the Heliacal rising of Sirius, but also the Biblical record here in Job 38. This also fits very well with v. 15 of the Revised English Bible rendering of “the Dog-star dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one.” The Stars of the Navigator’s line embody the stars of Orion’s Belt progressively fading, in the exact imagery described in the decan stars being lost or dimmed, fading away in the daily dawn brilliance of the Sun.   

It is well-known, however, that all ancient Egyptian funerary texts, from the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts to the Late Period Carlsberg Papyrus, make it also abundantly clear that the ‘time’ of rebirth was to occur when the event known as the heliacal rising of Sirius would take place in the eastern sky. This all-important yearly event was when the star Sirius appeared for the first time after a 70 days period of invisibility from the night sky. All we have to do, therefore, is to reconstruct the Northern sky as it appeared at the exact heliacal rising of Sirius in order to see what the ancient Egyptians saw, and draw the obvious similarities to equate the celestial images to those found in the 38th Chapter of Job.

This is vividly clear from Cornelius’ conclusion that; [http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2018/v31n1a10] 24

In Job 38 God is described as the Creator, the One Who, like the Sun deities of the Ancient Near East, has the prerogative of establishing order, but also salvation for the righteous by destroying or leading captive the powers of chaos and unrighteousness.18

Still a modern commentator such as Clines finds that:

First, we would expect the strophe to concern only with cosmological matters, as does everything else in this first section (vv. 4-38) of the first divine speech, and not to involve humans. Secondly, presence of the wicked is surprising, for there is very little about humans in the whole of the Yahve speeches, and even less about any moral government there may be of the world.19

The reference to the wicked is “surprising” only in the absence of the angel’s rebellion lead by Lucifer who committed Original Sin, prior to the creation of humanity. This is the context of the cosmological content related to the Dog Star translation, in the Revised English Version of the Bible. The Host of Heavenstudy contains more details on this topic.

The double meaning of these related passages of Scripture becomes clear as we take a closer look at the word for “wicked” in the 16th verse of Psalm 22. Let’s take a detailed look at this word and its Hebrew root used in Job 38.

The following is a reference note in Revised English Version of the Bible on the “Dog-star” in Job 38:13 & 15.25 This is translated as “the wicked” in the majority of other versions, thus on the surface “Dog-star” does not seem to fit in Job 38. However, as we take a view related to what Aron Pinker refers to as the cosmological perspective of these Bible verses,  allowing God’s Word to speak for itself, uncovers some long obscured and priceless gems of truth. To clarify this, let’s look at a marginal note in the Companion Bible,26 where it says “the wicked” is the same as “lawless” [*H7561, rasha]. In both Job 38:13 and 15, the Hebrew letter “ayin” is suspended. Without the ayin, the word means “head, top, chief” [*H7222, rosh], in reference to Lucifer’s former position as the Archangel of light, where he was the top head angel, chief of the angels. With “Ayin” supplied it is “the wicked,” referring to the fallen archangel as the source of all evil wickedness and darkness, after his failed coup against the Almighty. All the ancient versions and early printed editions read “the Lawless.”

Picking up on J.A. Clines Scribal abnormality [iii] above; the ע of רשעים [wicked] is written with abnormal elevation. The elevated text is also seen in a related note in Bullinger’s Companion Bible, on Judges 18:30, linked to “Mannasseh,” the letter “nun” is suspended, written partly in the line and partly above the line, to show that originally it formed no part of the word, but was put in to render the spelling “Mannasseh” instead of “Moses.” This was done for two reasons, first to spare the honor of Moses’ memory and name and secondly, to put sin upon one [Mannasseh] who committed so gross a sin. The Authorized Version follows the Septuagint and the Chaldee by putting “Mannasseh” in the text; while the Revised Version follows the Latin Vulgate and those codices and early editions, which have “nunsuspended, by putting “Moses” in the text and “Mannasseh” in the margin.27 [emphasis mine]

If the usage of this suspended letter “ayin” in Job 38 follows suit with “nun” Judges 18, then “originally it formed no part of the word,” and should properly read “rosh” instead of “rasha“. This would change the text from the wicked or  lawless to “head, chief, prince, leader, point, top, first rank, the highest, or supreme.” From the cosmological viewpoint evident in the Revised English Version of Job 38, this etymology is consistent with Egypt’s Denderah  zodiac, the bright star Sirius or Canis Major, the Dog-star is called “Apes,” which means “the head“. As the Dog-star is the brightest naked-eye star in all the heavens from earth’s perspective, the meaning of the “head or prince” is a precise fit. This “prince of the Heavenly host” was also referred to in the sacred books of Persia as “Tistar,” the “Chieftain of the East.” This is not only a symbol of the sunrise embodied in the new light of the world, but it also refers to the Pyramid’s capstone or “Chief cornerstone,” [Ps. 118:22, Eph. 2:20, 5:23] catching the first rays of the dawn and sunrise of a new dayIn Zech. 4:7, the “headstone“- *H7222 [roshah] from rosh *H7218 means the topmost stone at the corner.”28 [3] This concept is fully developed in the Biblical Astronomy of the Great Pyramid, evident in Job 38. We have seen this as a recurring theme of our study of the celestial signs surrounding the birth of Christ. The fact that Lucifer was the original light of the world, like Sirius, the brightest star in the Heavens, shows us a correlation to the first bright and morning star, in the First Heaven and Earth.

This reflects a time in ancient Egypt when calendars of a 360-day sacred solar year and 365.25-day SiriusSothic Calendar were running in synch. As the angel of light, and Time Lord, all temporal matters and the timekeeping of all Creation ran under his watch. As an anthropic constant, the speed of light is linked to temporal matters in that the closer one approaches light speed, the more time slows for him, as seen in Einstien’s Special and regular relativity theories. This interrelation of light and time is a key aspect of the order of space-time. After he was cast down however, there was a needed separation between what had become profaned, in the fallen Lucifer and what would remain sacred and holy in the coming promised seed, the rising light of the world, embodied in the sun, the “faithful witness in Heaven,” [Ps. 89:36-37, Mal. 4:2] We find this scenario reflected also in the dual Sirius stars A and B.

It is this powerful truth that is reflected in the suspended letter “ayin” in the Hebrew, revealing a double truth related to the star Sirius as a symbol of Lucifer, the original embodiment of the bright and morning star. Before his revolt and fall from his position as the head (rosh) of Creation, he was the “head, chief, prince, leader, point, top, first rank, the highest, supreme.” However, once iniquity was found in him [Ezek. 28:15], he became “the lawless,” [Heb.-rasha] wicked one. He is the embodiment of the activation of the principle of evil [ra’a], also understood in the spiritual Entropy of his original sin, the incept point of all darkness. This also explains the extremely negative mythological connotations of Sirius. Burnham’s states: “In the ancient Greco-Roman world, the influence of Sirius was regarded as extremely unfortunate, as the allusion to the wrathful Achilles in the Iliad seems to suggest. In Virgil’s Aeneid we read of the Dog Star, that burning constellation, when he brings drought and disease on sickly mortals, rises and saddens the sky with inauspicious light.” 4 [29]

This carries a greater significance when we realize that Sirius did not always bear these negative connotations. Bullinger states:

Though this Dog-Star came to have an ill-omened association, it was not so in more ancient times. In the ancient Akkadian it is called Kasista, which means the leader and the prince of the heavenly host.” 5 [30]

This is significant also in light of Sirius’ physical characteristics. The fact that the Sirius system consists of a double or Binary Star seems to mirror the dual symbolic nature of the star, which emerges from the context of Job 38:13-15. In its original position and first estate as the central fire of the heavensSirius A as the leader of the heavenly host, exemplifies the effulgent brightness of the manifested light of the world, while Sirius “B,” its companion star exhibits characteristics just the opposite. Known in modern terminology as a White Dwarf, according to some of the most recent determinations, SiriusB has a density about 90,000 times that of our Sun. The cycle of Sirius “B” is a fifty-year cycle, a fact verified by modern astronomers. Thus it is interesting to see how half this 50-year cycle of Sirius “B” reflects a luni-solar relation inherent in the 50-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees, according to the golden section, or phi ratio. As we can see, the Hebrew Jubilee figures into the timing of Christ’s birth, and is distinct in the celestial events making up the great wonder of Revelation 12. As the archaic angel of light we would expect to find celestial associations in the Sirius cycle that agree with the cadence of the Biblical Patriarch’s calendar, if our thesis holds true. The following calculations from John A. West show the coordination of the luni-solar cycles according to the golden section, or phi ratio, by splitting the fifty-year cycle into 2 x 25 years. According to West: The twenty-five year solar cycle corresponds to 309 lunations. 31

The calculations are: 25 x 365 = 9125 days, and 9125 = 29.5307 days per lunation 309= 29.5307 days per lunation 309. This in itself reveals extremely accurate observations. Modern Astronomy reckons the lunation as 29.53059 days, a difference of about a second. But Schwaller de Lubicz notes the intriguing equivalence of twenty-five years to 309 lunar months. 309 = (f – 1) x 1000 and its choice as the number determining the cycle cannot have been accidental. 32                                                                  2

A double cycle, which expresses the Golden Section, comprises fifty years, or 618 lunations. We may also recall that Rosh ha-Shanah as Tishri 1, is the “head” of the Judean calendar as New Year’s day and Jesus’birth-date, the first day of the fifty-year Hebrew cycle of Jubilees. Thus, we find that the fifty-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees that corresponds with the orbit of Sirius “B,” seems based on ancient traditions holding truths beyond the limits of modern science and of Archaeo-Astronomy has deigned to go thus far. This shows an astronomical correlation between the start of the Hebrew Jubilee and the 50-year cycle of SiriusB, previously undocumented.

In the midst of this assembly of the wicked was Jesus Christ who was poured out like water, refering to his holy sacrificial offering, as he selflessly endured the excruciating pain of his death, laying down his life as the essence of Israel’s High Priest. The end result of his ultimate sacrifice brought the “all truth” of “the Comforter” of John 16:7, the gift of holy spirit that became available as a result of the New Birth, seen for the first time on the day of Pentecost. This is the liquid seed that was poured out of the bucket known in the stars as Aquarius’ Urn, the living waters that truly quench men’s souls, seen in Num. 24:7. Even as these agents of the enemy circled the Lord, bringing about his sufferings, these shadow idols of the Cherubim in bold defiance of the Son of the Living God, infused with the four dark winds of the Cardinal points, activated the power of the dog [Ps. 22:20], with the fullness of the evil desires of the lord of darkness.

In the face of this apparent defeat, lay the greatest victory of the ages over our hidden enemy and spiritual adversary, that we have uncovered in the oldest book of the Bible. As Job was a Patriarchal master of discerning of spirits, it is fitting that these writings are found here as a complement to the Old Testament manifestations of the spirit, as seen in [Isa. 11:1-3]. We remain thankful not only for the ultimate sacrifice of Christ that redeemed us, but also for the Patriarchal Scriptural record that provides key spiritual depth and doctrinal basis for our walk in the spirit today. I am also thankful for the Biblical Astronomy perspective and truths that contributed to this study of Job, without which it would not be possible.

Comments Off on The Witness of the Great Pyramid in Job 38 and Rosh Hashanah, [Part 1b].


Signs, Miracles and Wonders in the Book of Acts
Manifestation of Believing   [MOB]                                                                   Rene Fretz

A High Altitude Survey of Acts in Light of the [MOB], and the power manifestations.

Jon Nessle, Wayne Clapp, Ed Horney, Jan Magiera, John Crouch, Ren Manetti, Will Barlow.

This teaching is based on the recent MOB Conference call that I linked to the Book of Acts, as it lays out the growth and expansion of the 1st Century Church. In the session, our Aramaic Scholar Jan Mageira shared some notes and charts that really blessed me. One chart Jan shared from her notes, was an Aramaic word picture of Faith which translates; “Strong Water to the Seed.” Strength is pictured as an Ox, as a pillar of the Church, one standing strong on God’s Word. The basic idea is firmness or certainty. The seed once planted, in ideal ground needs the best water to grow, allowing water to saturate the seed for ideal growth. Renewed mind believing comes by hearing the Word of God, but it is this higher level of faith that catalyzes Church growth. There are growth examples in all 4 Kingdoms of Life; Plant, Animal, Human & Spiritual. Growth occurs via the Laws of Nature God designed in Creation, but the impartation of Believing, Miracles and Gifts of Healing all supersede these laws to bring the impossible to pass at the command of the one operating in the certainty of this supernatural level of believing. We are aware of two universal key ingredients in the Manifestation of Believing [MOB]; human freewill and God energizing, that are always present. Once we Know That God energizes, a key question becomes HOW does God energize? We find examples in the Word of God where He energized in believer’s personal lives for blessing and deliverance in certain situations. This summary is focused on the Book of Acts for the following reasons;

The Seven Sons of a Sceva | HubPages

The pattern for growth in all four kingdoms of life increases according to the perfect geometric pattern of the Fibonacci Series. Plant-life is based on optimum utilization and exposure to light and water, enhanced by the spiral growth form of the Phi ratio and the distribution of leaves or seeds on the plants above ground, and the pattern root structure of the plant below ground. The Sunflower florets for example, are set in two rotating spirals, 21 clockwise and 34 anti-clockwise, programmed into the DNA of plant auxin, ordered via the Fibonacci numbers arranging the seeds in the most compact array to optimize their ability to gather light from the Sun for maximum growth and replication. There is also a general agreement between the geometric increase of growth via the Fibonacci Series and summarizing and concluding statements of the Book of Acts, that start with addition and geometrically increase in scale to multiplication, at higher levels. The “Grk. Word Auxano,” is the root for “auxins” found in 3 of the Acts summary statements; [Acts 6:7, 12:24, 19:20, Eph. 4:16]. We see this in how 1st Century Churches grew and were added in key areas, [Acts 9:31multiplied, 16:5, established in the faith, and increased in number daily…]

Sunflower Florets Arranged in Fibonacci Spirals

Sunflowers show complex Fibonacci sequences

Common themes of Music and geometric growth based on the Fibonacci series are exhibited in DNA, scalability, and replication. The principles of Plant DNA-auxins depicting the spiritual life and growth of the Acts 1st Century Church are witnessed in the gradual, progressive and systematic growth from the simple to the complex. We find a general compatibility of the numeric expansion of the Fibonacci Series [1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21] in the initial Fibonacci numbers; 1,1,2,3 increasing by simple addition; reaching a point of transition to multiplication. This growth is seen in Acts first with individuals, then moving on to groups/church levels daily! No matter the level of growth and expansion attained, these precepts do not deviate from these basic growth principles. In the Beginning with the initial utterance in His Symphony of Sound and Light, The light of Almighty God has continued its inexorable spread across all levels of Creation and our world. As all the choirs of the Kingdoms of Life add their voices to this universal Scriptural Score, All Creation praises our Almighty Creator and Loving Heavenly Father of Lights, spreading strands of truth, ever echoing and reverberating in newly variable combinations, unifying the works of His Hands, with each sharing their unique part in His infinite Mystery of Godliness.

[Rom. 8:19-2319 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

[Ps. 148-149, I Cor. 3:6-7, Col. 2:19]

DNA [the following research is found on Wikipedia and is suggested for further study]
For more information on DNA see Appendix 1 below.

Each cycle of the DNA molecule measures 34 angstoms long by 21 angstroms wide. 21 and 34 are consecutive
Fibonacci numbers. As the series increases the ratio of 34/21 is a closer approximation of phi, [1.618…] since it is further into the series progression than the previous examples of 3 and 5Jean-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 the 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) who called the discovery a “DNA supracode” [1].

As we find the Fibonacci number sequence of 21, 34 in both plant auxins and human DNA in the above examples we can see a similar pattern in God’s Word. A Grk. word for growth is Auxano 2 [G837]=to enlarge, grow up, [give the] increase. Botanical examples of Auxano, from the Plant Kingdom include; [Matt. 6:28] consider how the lilies of the field grow… [Matt. 13:32, Lk. 13:19] the tiny mustard seed grows greatest among the herbs. [Mk. 4:8] In the Parable of the Sower, the plant sprang up and increased bearing fruit…
[Luke 1:80, 2:40] Jesus as a child grew and waxed strong in spirit. [filled (G4137) with wisdom (G4678) and grace (G5485), 3 shows Jesus as the ideal example of Auxano growth in Human and Spirit Kingdoms.

This word also describes the growth and increase of God’s Word in believers according to the pattern of 8 Great Statements in the Book of Acts. [Acts 2:43-7, 6:7, 9:31, 11:2112:24, 16:5, 19:20, 28:31] 4 the Word of God increased and the number of disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly. Key verses where these 3 words; signs, miracles and wonders occur together are;

Acts 2:22, 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

As a fan of Biblical Astronomy it is notable that in Peter’s Sermon on the Day of Pentecost in 28AD, he references the OT Prophecy of [Joel 2:28-31] where the first use of the word “wonders” [teras] in Acts, occurs referring to celestial signs; [Rev. 12:1-2]. At the opening of the Age of Grace, it shows the vitality and importance of Biblical Astronomy in our current administration. Acts 2:20 refers to Blood Moons, or Lunar and solar eclipses where the sun is turned into darkness and the Moon to Blood before, or leading to the Great and notable Day of the Lord, and the return of Christ.

Heb. 2:4 Signs, wonders and mighty works [Dunamis]. A sign signifies something by the work wrought, or the specific type and nature of the deliverance. Peter & Paul did similar miracles while ministering to the Judean and Gentile churches in Acts 3:2-8, vs. 14:8-10, both men healed a man lame from his mother’s womb, having never walked, who began leaping and walked immediately upon their healing.

Where the [MOB] is present in bringing signs and wonders to pass we find a pattern of God energizing His spirit supernaturally with the power manifestations in his believers in the Church. Where the word for “Wonder” [teras] is used in specific sections of Acts, referring to the effect produced on those witnessing the mighty works, tells us How, When and Where God energized His spirit for the Word of God to grow, resulting in the rise and expansion of the Acts Churches. The rise in personal believing exercised by those witnessing these signs and wonders, builds into the results of expansion, growth of the Church and healing deliverance of the Church, not to mention the awe and respect for God, as in the first great statement.

 [Acts 2:43] fear or respect of God came upon every soul and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles, leading to Acts 2:47As Jon Nessle has taught; this reverence and respect for God listed with the OT manifestations seen on the positive side, which is discerning the spirit of the Lord. 5

[Isa. 11:2-3] And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick under-standing in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

Spectro-Chrome Prismatic Light

The spirit of understanding is dicserning of spirits on the negative side. As the discerning of spirits is listed as the 7th NT Manifestation in I Cor. 12, it reflects the depth of spiritual perfection and discernment on both the positive and negative sides required to operate the power manifestations. 6 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Knowledge and wisdom, [Ps. 110:10, Prov. 1:7]. [Heb. 5:14] reminds us that by reason of use we should exercise our spiritual sense to discern both good and evil. The Acts Great Statements also record the opening and unveiling of the Great Mystery in practical application in the transition to the Book of Acts from OT Manifestations to NT Manifestations, seen in the progressive spiritual growth of the 1st Century Church. This reverence was at the heart of the Unity and 1 accord [Acts 1:14, 2:46] of the Church [Eph. 4:1-4], as this awe and respect came upon every soul, via witnessing Signs, miracles and wonders. This spiritual unity is a focus of the 1st summary and conclusion statement in Acts, the number one signifying unity and commencement.

  Fearless: A Pentecost Reflection – God In All Things                                                                                         

 Acts 2:46-47, was a direct result of Peter’s Sermon on the Day of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church, and opening of the Age of Grace Admin, the Lord added [to the church] daily, such as should be saved.

The 1st section of Acts saw the miracle New Birth first become available, marked by a sign “cloven tongues like as of fire” with Speaking in Tongues as a new worship manifestation of power from on high [Acts 2:,4 38], and in many tongues understood in their own language evoking a multitude responding in Praise to God, a key summarized in the first Great Statement, [Acts 2:47].

[Acts 2:22, 3:16, Faith in his Name], “call on the name of the Lord”-
[Acts 7:59] At Stephen’s sto
ning. 9:14-all that call on thy Name.
[Acts 22:16]; Paul with Ananias calling on the Lord’s Name.
[Rom. 10:12-14]; No difference between Jew
and Greek for the Same Lord is rich over all that call on Him. [1 Cor. 1:2]. 7

The Counterfeit in Acts 19-the sons of Sceva tried to derail calling on the Lord’s Name after failed attempts to shut down the Word via fear and intimidation. Both in Acts 5:18-19, below and Acts 19:17, fear and reverence came on them all, and the genuine Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

This links the 1st and 7th Great Statements of Acts not only in the apostolic ministries of Paul and Peter in the two denominations of the 1st Century Church, but also in the 7 Great Statements as a set, where the 8th is a new beginning. Ananias and Sapphira is another example where reverence of the Lord was violated with immediate terminal consequences [Acts 5:1-5], Great reverence ensued. Genuine believer’s true motivation in repentance is not fear/legalistic condemnation, but in the love, joy and delight for God to seek and walk in His light. As His will is revealed for us in our calling, we develop a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father in the practical application of our gifts, callings and purpose.

Acts 4:30-37 By stretching forth thy hand to heal that signs and wonders may be done, This shows when leaders and believers “get their hands dirty” in service to the body, God energizes [MOB] required to bring gifts of healings with these signs and wonders to pass in the impartation category, revealing the powerful Hand of the Lord, with them leading to the 4th Acts summary statement;

[Acts 11:2121 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.

Acts 5:12-16 By the hands of the Apostle’s were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; The Shadow of Peter healed the sick and those vexed with evil spirits. Peter and Paul both did special miracles [Acts 5:15-16, 9:42, 19:11-12], raising the Dead!

The Angel delivering Paul from Prison

ANGELS IN THE BIBLE

Acts 5:18-19 When the High Priest and Sadducees laid hands on the Apostles to imprison them, the angel of the Lord opened the prison doors releasing them, told them to “Go Stand and speak in the Temple to the people all the words of this lifefreeing the men of God with the ministry of reconciliation. This is the 1st record in Acts of angelic action in the movement of the Gospel. All leading to the 2nd section in Acts 6:7 where the Word of God increased and the number of disciples multiplied greatly. Here the Quality of believers increased to Disciples at a higher level, while the Quantity also transitions to multiplying of individual disciples vs. added believers. [Acts 6:1 disciples multiplied, at a lower rate beforegreatly” multiplying in Acts 6:7, as in the Fibonacci number series, where the expansion multiplies faster the deeper into the numeric series we progress, until “Churches are multiplied” on a group level in Acts 9:31].

Acts 9:31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

This is a key record in Acts where the intervention of an angel plays a key role to protect Paul and others. Since Acts was the birthday of the Church of Christ’s spiritual Body, it is also the first time Christ’s authority over both the angels and the Church is witnessed at the same time, [Rev. 1:20]. Thus it behooves us to pay attention to the actions of angels, and their influence on the growth of God’s Word in Acts.

In the 2nd section we see in Acts 6:8, where Stephen was full of faith and power, doing great wonders and signs among the people. Acts 6:15 says Stephen’s face was perhaps illuminated like the face of an angel. Stephen also recounts God who sent Moses as the deliverer of Israel, by the hand of the Angel of the burning bush. Since the growth of the Church began in Jerusalem, there was an emphasis on the signs done by Moses in Egypt and the wilderness in Acts 7:36.

Phillip the Evangelist and the Ethiopian Eunuch

Encounters With God – Philip & The Ethiopian Eunuch – Acts 8:26-40 | OneLife Community Church

In Acts 8 the people seeing and hearing the miracles done at the hands of Phillip gave heed with one accord in Samaria [Acts 8:5-8], was sent to Gaza by an angel [8:26] where he met an Ethiopian Eunuch, as Phillip evangelized beyond and outside Jerusalem, since the Eunuch was not a Jew. This was an initial sign after Acts 2:38-39, that the Word was moving to the Gentiles, followed by the record with Simon the Sorcerer, a key account where the positive impact of God’s Word shut down occult powers. In Acts 9 Saul, after he saw the events involving Stephen, led efforts to persecute and slaughter the Church.

Paul was persecuting the Church of Christ with authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on the Name of the Lord, but God called him to bear God’s Name before the Gentiles, kings & Isreal,  [Acts 9:1415]. Here the Church’ growth waited on the personal growth of Paul as a key minister to impact the spiritual conflict of that day. When Jesus recruited Paul, he took a top agent of the enemy, turned him from darkness unto light. This removed the impetus from the enemy, transferring it on the right side. We find the Church influenced on a group level by individual key leaders, as chief persecutor-Paul was recruited and converted by Christ to become the leading Apostle to the Gentiles. After his conversion these attacks ceasedone reason why the Churches had rest in the 3rd Great statement of Acts 9:31, a great example of the practical application of comfort of the holy spirit.
As the church walked in awe and respect of the Lord and comfort of the Holy Spirit they were multiplied. Here we find the 1st time the Churches multiplied on a group level vs. single believers, or disciples, resulting from the people reverencing and respecting the Lord, and being edified; [oikodomeo].

This opens the 4th section with Peter healing Aeneas of the palsy and raising Tabitha from the dead, that was known throughout Joppa so that many believed in the Lord, [Acts 9:42]. In Acts 10:3 Cornelius reached out to Peter, at the Angel’s direction where Peter has a vision so God can take him beyond the OT Law, to witness to Cornelius and the Gentiles. This promise was first revealed to Peter in Acts 2:38-39, as we saw was reiterated with Phillip and the Ethiopian Eunuch. Finally, in Acts 10 God showed Peter in the vision the full ramifications of the initial prophecy at Pentecost, where the Gentiles manifested holy spirit, and shared the baptism of the Spirit. This lead to the 4th section of Acts, [Acts 11:21] where the “Hand of the Lord” was with them, and a great number believed and “turned to the Lord.” Four is the number of the World, where the Gentile nations believed and manifested just as the apostles did at Pentecost.

New Testament 5, Lesson 7: Peter and Cornelius - Seeds of Faith Podcast

Next was the time for Barnabas to rise and be sent to Antioch in Acts 11:22 who was full of the holy spirit and Faith, leading to the 5th great summary statement “and much people were added to the church,” [Acts 12:24]. In Acts 12 Peter is delivered from Herod’s Prison by an Angel, another instance of angels with key roles in signs and wonders, in this case the believers in the house praying for Peter’s release, thought it was Peter’s angel at the door, not Peter himself. In Acts 12:23 in Herod’s speech, the people said his was the voice of god [idol] and when he did not give God the glory, reverence and respect due to ego, the angel smote him so he was eaten with worms and expired. This shows the consequences of not reverencing the Almighty at this point. On the heels of this, the 5th Acts Great statement takes place, an awesome witness and testimony to the temperature of believing, awe and respect of God by omission at this stage of growth, in the new area of Antioch, like Ananias & Sapphira previously.

Acts 13:42-43, Acts 14:1-4 Paul and Barnabus in Iconium, where a great multitude of Jews & Greeks believed. 14:3 shows Paul and Barnabas teaching and preaching the Gospel where signs and wonders were done by their hands. This witness by Paul & Barnabas continued in the Acts Council at Jerusalem, where they recounted the signs and wonders God wrought among the Gentiles, [Acts 15:12]. Paul and Barnabas split over John-Mark [Acts 15:36-39], Paul goes with Silas, and not much is heard of Barnabas afterwards.

This leads to the 6th Great Statement in Acts 16:5 where the Churches were established, [3:7, strengthened- stereoo. In this section of Acts [14:22-23] we find the leaders exhorting [parakaleo] and confirming the souls of the disciples, [confirming=episterizo, exhorting-parakaleo 15:32, 18:23], 8 ordaining elders and in this way confirmed every church [Acts 15:41]. This provided the basis for the church growth to increase in number daily. Paul gets the vision of the Man of Macedonia in Troas [Acts 16:9-10], calling for their help. Here they met Lydia and her believing household. Upon shutting down the divination spirit in the Name of Jesus Christ, [Acts 16:16-36] they saw a backlash from the local magistrates being persecuted, beaten and imprisoned by those who lost their soothsaying income from their spiritualist damsel, but as they were equipped in their faithful reply of singing praises to God in prayer, a great earthquake shook them loose, so the apostles  were delivered from prison, saving the jailer with his house.

In Acts 19 Paul in Ephesus ministered the Holy Spirit unto the believers and they Spoke in Tongues and prophesied, [19:3-8, 11] God wrought special miracles [dunamis] by the hands of Paul. When counterfeit exorcistspiritualist Sons of Sceva were sent packing, as they counterfeited the “Name of the Lord,” with a “false spirit of Jesus,fear [respect] fell on them so the true “Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified, calling attention to the real power of the “Lord’s Name.” Here we see the reverence of the Lord combined with calling on the Lord’s Name, to the end the genuine was magnified. This focus caused the people to burn their books of occult practice, so the Word mightily grew [Acts 19:20] and prevailed against diminished opposition in the 7th summary statement. Acts 19:21 says “After these things were ended…” shows link and level of completion in the first 7 Great Statements of Acts, with the unity of the 1st and 7th verses based on the “Name of the Lord.”

Here we see another level of spiritual counterfeit in the organized group opposition and industry behind Dianna of the Ephesians, whose Temple was a wonder of the old world, getting labor Unions and local politicians involved to riot and shout down the Apostle’s; [Acts 19:24-29, 32-34 like antifa]. This was an answer to the Churches multiplying in growth, demanding the enemy to respond in kind, with a chaotic assembly [Ekklesia] most of which “knew not the reason they were come together.” However, cooler heads led by Alexander prevailed against Demetrius-the Union boss who accused Paul of turning away many from the industry tied to the worldwide worship of the idol goddess Dianna, teaching “there be no gods that are made with hands,” [Acts 19:26].

In Acts 23:6-9 Paul’s background in the Judean religion being familiar with the belief’s of the Sadducee’s and Pharisee’s, he drew on his own history as a Pharisee, hitting upon a point of division between the 2 sects, since the Sadducee’s did not believe in Angel’s or spirits, but the Pharisee’s hold with both. So he used this schism based on the doctrine of angels to his advantage to escape with his skin.

During Paul’s journey to Rome he witnessed the Gospel of Christ before Governor Festus, and King Agrippa. Once Paul started the Ocean voyage from Crete with the ensuing storm, the crew had lost hope, Paul exhorted them that there would be no loss of life in the remainder of their trip, only the ship, [Acts 27:20-25].

Acts 28:31 is the 8th Great Statement, where “Paul dwelt in his own hired house for 2 years, preaching and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

After all the strife and contention that the adversary put up to oppose the movement of God’s Word, all the stonings, stripes and hazards encountered by Peter, Paul and the Apostle’s and Believers, they finally got to the point where they could have free course to share God’s Word minus persecution, in all confidence “no man forbidding him,” showing he was unhindered in these efforts. I believe this speaks volumes for our day because the enemy knows his days are numbered and short, so he is pulling out all the stops leading up to the tribulation, that we are witnessing in the current pandemic and Signs-of today.

In summary, we have seen a strong link between the awe and respect of God, seen in the 1st, 3rd and 6th Great Statements, resulting in Hand of the Lord, being with the apostle’s, so that more signs, miracles & wonders are operated in the ministries of the apostles and prophets, in the Name of Jesus Christ. With this super-natural deliverance resulting from God energizing this deliverance among the believers, the Name of God is manifested in light of His true benevolent power, witnessed far and wide by his genuine ministers. The pattern of Church growth laid out in the Book of Acts, provides a standard and replicable blueprint modern Christians can emulate as we abide by the principles evident in this record. This seems to be our clarion call as seen in the 8th Great Statement as a New Beginning for the application of these keys in genuine Church outreach.

These statements also depict the unity of the 7 Ones [Eph. 4] in practical Application! [Body, Spirit, Hope, Lord, Faith, Baptism, God-father].

God has no hands and feet but our hands and feet to walk amongst the almost dead…

DNA spiral as a Golden Section

The DNA molecule, the program for all life, is based on the golden section.  It measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angstroms wide for each full cycle of its double helix spiral.

Construction of the golden section, based on phi, the golden ratio
DNA and phi, the golden proportion, in the dimensions of its spirals
34 and 21, of course, are numbers in the Fibonacci series and their ratio, 1.6190476 closely approximates phi, 1.6180339.

B-DNA has spirals in phi proportions

DNA in the cell appears as a double-stranded helix referred to as B-DNA.This form of DNA has a two groove in its spirals, with a ratio of phi in the proportion of the major groove to the minor groove, or roughly 21 angstroms to 13 angstroms.

B-DNA major and minor grooves in phi or golden ratio proportion

Insight on B-DNA proportions contributed by Melih Yazici.

The DNA cross-section is based on Phi

It has been reported but not yet confirmed by this site that a cross-sectional view from the top of the DNA double helix forms a decagon:



Top view of DNA molecule

A decagon is in essence two pentagons, with one rotated by 36 degrees from the other, so each spiral of the double helix must trace out the shape of a pentagon.

Pentagons are based on phi, the golden ratio

Construction of a decagon using two pentagons based on phi, the golden ratio

The ratio of the diagonal of a pentagon to its side is Phi to 1.  So, no matter which way you look at it, even in its smallest element, DNA, and life, is constructed using phi and the golden section!

The following quote is from Gary Meisner who authors the [https://www.goldennumber.net/dna/] site.

I think we can all agree that imaginary entities do not create anything. If God is our Creator though, then He is not imaginary. Just to have this exchange of thoughts, we type away at computers dependent upon sophisticated programming codes, communication networks and power sources that took highly intelligent human beings centuries of purposeful design to achieve. A single strand of our DNA though contains a more sophisticated code than any mankind has created. That code contains the complete instructions to create the human brain, which is far more sophisticated than any computer we’ve conceived, and the neural networks that allow your eyes to see, your brain to think and your fingers to type. I am in awe at the need of other story telling humans to believe that the amazing intricacy in the cosmos happened without intelligence, thought and design, completely by chance and with absolutely no purpose.- Gary Meisner. 9

Comments Off on Geometric Growth in the 1st Century Acts Church


Witness of the Great Pyramid Star Shafts and the Birth and Return of Christ [Part 1]

This July 2020 blog is the sixth anniversary of the opening of our Bible Astronomy blog. In the time since we began compiling this Biblical Astronomy blog in 2014, we have noted an abundance of celestial evidence including signs marking the birth and return of Christ, with many parallels between the two. We have also documented a host of celestial signs supporting my proposal of a Celestial Prelude, where signs leading to Christ’s birth, are precedents directly pointing to specific signs marking his birth. Just as this pattern is discernible leading to Christ’s birth, so we also find indicators of it leading to his return.

As Celestial signs marking the birth of Christ took place in about a two year period between 3-1 BC, marked by a series of signs in 5 BC, so the signs of Sept. 2017 were presaged 2 years earlier with Heavenly signs in 2015. At the end of June 2015, we saw the first of 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions in Leo, that took place before the conclusion of the 2014-15 Blood Moon tetrad. The first union of these two brightest planets recalls their fantastic conjunction on June 17th 2 BC, that was part of a series of signs marking Christ’s birth, with the Star of Bethlehem.

Sept. 17th, 2015 was a key date since it marked not only the Rev. 12 sign of the Sun clothing Virgo with the Moon at her feet, but also the first of 2 Mercury-Spica conjunctions in Virgo within 6 weeks, the 2nd one on October 29th. The Sept. 17th, 2015 sign of Rev. 12, takes place two years before the Great Wonder of Rev. 12 was repeated in the heavens in Sept. 2017, as seen at the birth of Christ. Mercury-Gabriel, the messenger archangel announced the nearness of the Lord Jesus Christ, returning FOR his Saints in the Church of the Body of Christ. The star Spica, the brightest star in Virgo, embodies the Promised Seed-Jesus Christ in his four-fold ministry as King, Son of Man, Servant and Son of God, as seen in the Four Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

 

The Birth of Christ was first promised in the initial Messianic prophecy in God’s Word in Gen. 3:15. This is the alpha prophecy in Genesis, the Bible’s first book which is complemented by the OmegaRev. 12 sign, as Scriptural bookends for the Word of God in the FleshJesus Christ the Promised Seed. In viewing the Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis in Figure 1 below, we find clear evidence not only of the Gospel in the Stars, but also for the prophetic monuments of the Giza Plateau. As the Great Sphinx embodies the alpha-omega signs of the ecliptic while prophesying of Christ’s birth, so the Great Pyramid also is aligned with Bethlehem and Jerusalem by its geographic Christ angle 26.5 degree axis, known as the “Bethlehem line.”

The Gen. 3:15 Planisphere axis however, is an astronomical axis that embodies mankind’s transcendent hope in the Coming Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Our introduction of this planisphere axis in last month’s June 2020 blog, is a detailed account of its primary elements, but our review of it in this month’s blog will focus on the major aspects of its dominant theme. This references Genesis 3:15 as the 1st Messianic prophecy in God’s Word, and as such is a key reference, worthy of a closer look as a basis for and foundation of the Gospel in the Stars, and the birth of Christ.

Gen. 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Here we have a reference to the seemingly ageless struggle between light and darkness, embodied in the serpent and its seed, versus the Woman with her seed. God is telling the serpent that the seed of the woman who is Jesus Christ, would bruise the serpent’s head, indicative of the fatal blow that Christ inflicts on Satan, as opposed to the serpent stinging Christ’s heel, showing Christ’s sacrifice, that freed all mankind from the serpent’s curse. This story from Gen. 3;15 is depicted in astonishingly powerful ways in the Gospel in the Stars, as seen in this Planisphere Axis below.

Figure 1. Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis.


This “Genesis 3:15 axis” extends through the North pole intersecting a number of constellations and notable decans that relate aspects of the Genesis 3:15, theme from various teaching viewpoints. Opening at the bottom of the planisphere, we find the Scorpion constellationScorpius, whose prominent tail stinger is positioned under the heel of Ophiuchus the Serpent-bearer constellation, who is engaged in a struggle with the serpent. The axis intersects the star in Ophiuchusheel, called Saiph, in the LXX Greek meaning “bruised.”1 This is the same Greek word used in Gen. 3:15 for “bruised,” while Ophiuchus’ other leg is poised over the head of the Scorpion, showing the fatal blow crushing the enemy. This enlargement of Ophiuchus wrestling the serpent for Corona-the Crown of Dominion, while the Scorpion stings his heel, in Figure 2 tells us how our spiritual adversary is pictured both as a serpent and a scorpion, in conflict with the man, fitting three Scriptural elements of the star picture. In Hebrew the Scorpion is Akrab, meaning war or conflict; [Ps. 91:13] with the man. 2

Figure 2. Ophiuchus the Serpent-bearer, over Scorpius.

the serpent scorpion

If we now look at the other end of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis, we find amazingly that it intersects Orion, specifically at the star in Orion’s foot named Rigel, meaning “the foot that crushes,” which is fitting since it is pictured crushing the enemy. The main star in Orion’s other leg incredibly is “Saiph” the same word for “bruised we saw in Ophiuchus that is also used in Gen. 3:15! 3 Not only do we find both ends of this amazing Planisphere axis agreeing with the same star name tied to Gen. 3:15, but before the axis reaches Orion’s foot, it intersects the bright star in Orion’s shoulder called Bellatrix, meaning “swiftly destroying,” pointing to the swift destruction of the enemy at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. 4

Job 38:31-33

31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? 32 Canst thou bring forth
Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? 33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the Earth?

Figure 3. The decan of Orion, with his foot over the Hare initiating the River of Judgement.

zodiac stars

The original meaning of Orion is “coming forth as light.” The same word is used in Genesis. 1:17 and Isa. 60:1, referring to the light of the celestial luminaries. This light is both physical in Creation and spiritual as we trace the meaning and usage of these ancient star names, both in God’s Word and historical sources.

The linking of Christ’s identification with Ophiuchus and Orion in the Celestial Gospel, is supported in the obvious parallels in this stellar depiction of [Gen. 3:15.] As we let the stars speak, their witness of truth shines through any idols or star myths telling alternative stories. Frances Rolleston “observed that although in most charts Orion’s foot rests upon a hare, in at least one ancient Indian star chart there is snake in place of the hare. Presumably, this snake has bitten, or bruised, Orion’s heel, but he is crushing the serpent’s head in fulfillment of the first Messianic prophecy (Genesis 3:15).”5

Of course, this depiction of a serpent instead of a Hare is not limited to Indian zodiacs, but was also the case in the Dendera zodiac below, along with Persian zodiacs as well. 6 In the Dendera Zodiac’s version of Orion, in red seen beside Taurus the Bull in orange, with serpent underfoot and bird of prey also above the serpent’s head, descending with extended claws.

Figure 4. The Dendera Zodiac version of Orion over a Serpent instead of a Hare.

Temple of Hathor Dendera Zodiac and Great Year/Precession of the ...

This image agrees with Seiss, showing both the Persian and Egyptian zodiacs, including the image of the serpent under Orion’s foot, caught in the claws of a hawk or eagle. 7  As we have seen in one of the most ancient planisphere’s– the square Dendera Zodiac, as found with its depiction of the Great Sphinx, but it is also a uniquely wonderful source for the identification of ancient decans, showing Lepus the “hare,” as a serpent.

Since the Gospel in the Stars is a pictorial representation, that parallels God’s Word, at times they tell a composite story of the truth of Christ. This axis is a good example of a composite pictorial depiction of Gospel truth, that is backed up by the meanings of the individual star names in the constellations and decans of these star pictures. The combined image of this Gen. 3:15 Axis not only presents 3 heavenly giants in combat with serpentine enemies, but there is also a forth decan on this axis shown taking the central star of the heavens away from the dragon’s control. Once the serpent replaces the Hare from later zodiacs, this Gen. 3:15 axis shows a powerful unified image in multiple constellations, all centered around the Gen. 3:15 theme.

Figure 5. Draco and Cepheus at the North Pole.

draco

The fourth decan referred to above is Draco the dragon, seen in Figure 5 above, with Hercules’ Foot above its head, inside one of the circles of the Northern Polar Venn Diagram. This is pictured astronomically as the dynamic equatorial pole slowly moves around the static pole of the ecliptic, at the center of the upper circle. The common area between these overlapping polar wheels we find as a vesica of the Venn Diagram. This gives us another viewpoint of the precession of the poles, as the equatorial pole shifted from Thuban, in Draco’s tail to Polaris of Ursa Minor over the past 5000 years. This fulfills the promise of the coming redeemer, as our Gen. 3:15 axis passes through the current pole star Polaris, seen between the feet of Cepheus, the Crowned King, [Eph. 1:20-22]. This celestial image of the King of kings is realized and fulfilled in Christ Jesus, who now presides over the central star of the heavens, formerly under the dominion of the Dragon. Within this Polar circle, we find a triangle that encloses the Little Bear of Ursa Minor. The Triangle roughly consists of the Ecliptical pole at the center of this upper circle, along with two pole stars. One is Thuban the former pole star in the Dragon’s tail on the circle’s perimeter at the upper right corner, and the other is the current pole star Polaris, at the lower-left corner. As we find in Figure 6 below, the Pole star marked Al Ruccabais under the foot of Cepheus, meaning “the Branch,” 8 exerting his authority over all Creation. Thus the man’s wounded foot has become the instrument of the serpent’s destruction, not only seen in his crushing fatal blow to the serpent’s head, but also is witnessed in the outcome of Ophiuchus’ struggle with the serpent for the Crown [in Fig.2] of Dominion, in the crowned King Cepheus seated, reigning over the North Pole.

 As Scripture teaches the Great Pyramid has much to say as one of the oldest monumental witnesses of Jesus Christ on planet Earth. The Fig. 6 graphic above shows the Great Pyramid’s geographical position mirroring the star Al Nitak in Orion’s BeltIf one were at Bethlehem at the time of Christ’s birth looking up to the lower belt star of Orion (Al Nitak—the wounded one) at meridian, the angle of that star above the horizon would be at the same angle as the Great Pyramid itself—51 degrees and 51 mins. 10 If true, this is added evidence to the Pyramid’s existingBethlehem line” linking to the birth of Christ. Other star programs give different conclusions about the position of Al Nitak at the time of Christ’s birth, but this is not the only Great Pyramid witness we are interested here. Not only do we have the “Orion Correlation Theory” with the stars of Orion’s belt, aligning with the Pyramid’s of the Giza complex, but the witness evident in Figure 5 above, of the precession of the pole star from Thuban of Draco to Polaris of Ursa Minor, is also referenced in the Great Pyramid’s Star Shafts, as we find below!

Figure 7. Aligning the Star Shafts of the Great Pyramid. 11

The first thing to note about these 4 Great Pyramid Star Shafts is that originate in the Queen’s Chamber
and two also come from the King’s Chamber, with its Southern shaft aligned on Al Nitak in Orion’s Belt, and 
the northern shaft aligned on Thuban of Draco at its upper culmination. The Pyramid’s Descending shaft is aligned on Thuban’s lower culmination, showing Lucifer’s demise headed towards the pit at the bottom of this passage, [Isa. 14:15, 19]. Sir John Herschel calculated that Thuban was clearly visible from the bottom of the Great Pyramid’s Descending Passage at Thuban’s inferior culmination, when its circumpolar orbit was at its lowestPiazzi Smyth, Astronomer Royal for Scotland also calculated Thuban was 3 degrees 43 min. from the pole at its lower culmination in both 2123 BC and 3440 BC12  Beyond this, Piazzi Smyth surmised that if the Great Pyramid’s foundation containing the pit in its bedrock, was built on the autumnal equinox in 2170 BC, when Thuban was at the meridian below the poleAlcyone of the Pleiades was also crossing the meridian above the pole. 13  Could this be a reason why the Pleiades & Orion are always listed together in the Bible? [Job 9:938:31 Amos 5:8]. It gives one pause to consider, but after Piazzi Smyth’s reckoning, Percival Lowell in 1912, calculated that the “Descending Passage of the Pyramid was oriented to a point 3 degrees 34′ below the pole, the location which Thuban would have occupied, allowing for refraction some 645 years before or after its closest approach to the true pole.”14 Like Piazzi Smyth, Lowell also computed two potential dates for Thuban to occupy this position, with an updated slight revision yielding 3475 BC and 2185 BC. Lowell pointed out that “the more recent date is negated by what we know of Egyptian History, and we are thus left with the other”-[3475 BC] as a better candidate for the construction of the Great Pyramid. 15

Since this astronomical evidence involving the Great Pyramid from Herschel, Smyth and Lowell is incompatible with the orthodox Egyptian chronology of the 4th Dynasty under Khufu [2700-2600 BC], we should look at other archaeological and historical evidence that may support the highly accurate Great Pyramid astronomy. Some of this evidence is seen in the Great Sphinx, which was built as part of the Giza master-plan including the Pyramids, the causeways and the Great Sphinx, which is a developing concept as our narrative proceeds on the history of these famed monuments of ancient Egypt. The Inventory Stela provides strong evidence, by Khufu himself, that he was not the Great Pyramid’s builder, and that the Pyramid and Sphinx, already existed during his reign. Egyptologists like James H. Breasted, included the Inventory Stela in his official Fourth Dynasty list of artifacts, stating that it “bore all the marks of authenticity.” Also, the French Egyptologist Gaston Maspero whose popular work, “The Dawn of Civilization,” stated that this stela was indeed a factual record of the life and deeds of Khufu. 16

With the exception of a few die-hards, most egyptologists consent to the accumulating body of archaeological and geological evidence, indicating that the Great Sphinx dates much older than the 4th Dynasty, and that the Sphinx was only restored by Chephren, not built during his reign. Added evidence from the ‘Inventory Stele‘ uncovered near the Sphinx in the 19th century relates that Pharaoh Cheops/Khufu, Chephren’s predecessor – ordered a temple built beside the Sphinx, meaning the Sphinx already existed at this earlier time, and thus was not built by Chephren. Since the astronomical elements of the Dendera Zodiac that inspired the Great Sphinx must predate it, we can see how the ages of the Dendera Zodiac and the Great Sphinx are inseparably joined, giving us a truer idea for the ages of these monumentally intertwined ancient artifacts.

The Inventory Stela, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid | Ancient ...

In building the Great Sphinx’s adjoining temple, quarried stone blocks of over 200 tons were used, with some of this Sphinx temple masonry matching stone-work in building the Pyramids. This includes the causeway link-ing the Pyramids to the Great Sphinx, showing the relation between these uniquely historic monuments on a number of levels. It is logical that some of the quarried blocks were used to construct the temple, as the Sphinx was carved out of nearby existing rock. It also suggests a master-plan for the blueprints in building these elements of the Giza Plateau including the Sphinx, its temples and the Pyramids. The masterplan idea for the Giza Plateau was shown to be based on the “Christ angleof 26.5 degrees, which not only happens to be the slope angle of the Great Pyramid’s Ascending and Descending Passage’s, but also was the alignment key for the entire Giza Plateau itself. 17

This is noteworthy since only the Great Pyramid, of all Egypt’s pyramids, was built with ascending and descending passages, which becomes more interesting as we take note of the related planetary alignments on Rosh Hashanah in 2017, marked by the Great Pyramid. The southern shaft of the Queen’s Chamber points to Sirius the Dog Star and brightest star in the sky. The Queen’s Chamber North shaft is aligned on the star Kochab of Ursa Minor, holding the same polar stars found on the Gen. 3:15 axis in Fig. 5. Ursa Minor is where we find the pole star todayPolaris under the feet of Cepheus, the Crowned King. This stellar image of the King of kings is fulfilled in Christ Jesus, who now rules over this central star of the sky, formerly Thuban under the dominion of the Dragon- Lucifer in his first estate. This documents a transition in spiritual power from Lucifer the fallen Morning Star, who was previously the prince and leading archangel over all angels of heaven, until iniquity was found in him, with his treacherous failed coup against the Heavenly Father, to Christ the ascendant Morning Star, who is now seated at the right hand of the Almighty, [Eph. 1: 1923]. This story of the fallen Morning Star is also related in the Star Sirius-the Prince, as we will see in Part 2 of this study.

The dual alignment of Thuban below the pole with the Pleiades above the pole in 2170 BC, calculated by Piazzi Smyth, not only supports the key application of the autumnal equinox related to Rosh Hashanah, as we will see below, but also reveals an important point about how the Pleiades witnesses to the fall of the first Morning StarLucifer.  [Isa. 14:12]

 In China’s astronomical records, the Pleiades star cluster was among the earliest of Lunar houses on record, dating to 2357 BC, when the star Alcyone in the Pleiades was near the vernal equinox18 The 7 stars of this famed cluster are identified by Job [9:9, 38:31] and referred to collectively as a “heap or accumulation, and the congregation of the judge or ruler,” said also to be referenced in Rev. 1 as a mystery.” Since the Mystery can refer to the spiritual body of Christ and the congregation of the church of the ruler or head of this church, who is Christ, this is a key aspect of the Mystery, which was not revealed before the day of Pentecost in 28 AD. But what about the relationship between Christ and the angelic realms? Rev. 1:20 refers to the angelic order in relation to Christ and the 7 churches in his right hand.

Rev. 1:20
20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candle-sticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Figure 8. The Pleiades Star Cluster

Now that the ascended Christ has supplanted the fallen Morning Star, he inherited rulership over the remaining choirs and cohorts of the angelic hosts previously ordered under Lucifer. This is part of the mystery of the seven stars, of angels held in the right hand of Christreminds us of the divine seven-fold pattern of the order of Cherubim according to their regular distribution around the four colored curtains of Tabernacle walls of both the Holy Placeand the Holiest of all. As we find this pattern in the earthly Tabernacle, so we also find it in the Heavenly Tabernacle, as Rev. 15:5-8 reveals, as seen in Part 1 . [cp. Rev. 8: 2]

The pattern of the 7 angels of God in relation to the four “beasts” or living creatures, depicting the Four
Cardinal Directions is upheld in the heavenly Tabernacle even as we see in its earthly model. This 7 x 4 pattern yielding 28 Lunar Mansions relating to the lunar cycle, aligned with the solar cycle, evident also in structure of the Tabernacle. The enemy continues to adhere parasitically to the original order set down by the Almighty, in ordering and marshaling his legions of fallen angels. As we find the pattern of seven repeated in the fallen angelic orders, we also find an image of “four beasts” resembling the “dragon decans” or serpent monsters [Draco, Hydra, Cetus, & Serpens] in the starry constellations of the ecliptic, not to mention the Gen. 3:15 axis in the night sky.

This mystery of the seven stars also includes the Angel’s first estate prior to their revolt, when Lucifer as the Bright and Morning Star led the angels as Morning stars and sons of God, in their collective shouts of joy, praising the Almighty, [Job 38:7, Isa. 14:12-20, Ezek. 28:12-19]. But once iniquity was found in Lucifer, he was cast out of heaven taking 1/3 of the angels down with him. [Rev. 12:7-9]. The Prophet Amos reminds us to;

Seek Him that made the seven stars and Orion, and turned the shadow of death into the morning, and made the day dark with night: that called for the waters of the sea, and poured them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name …”  [Amos 5:8] KJV

We find hints of this in Milton’s description of Creation at the dawn of the world, in Paradsie Lost; where he says of the Sunrise,

the Dawn and the Pleiades before him danc’d, shedding sweet influence…19

He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.” [Rev. 1:16]

This reference in Rev. 1:16 is certainly reminiscent of the helical rising of the 7 stars of the Pleiades, as seen in the Chinese and Egyptian Lunar Mansions. There is a legend linked to one of these seven stars, that was lost in infamy. The Poet Aratos wrote;

As seven their fame is on the tongues of men, though six alone are beaming on the eye… 20

This story fits the narrative of the fallen arch-angel Lucifer, who is no longer numbered among the Heavenly angels, having lost his initial place of honor. [Isa. 14:12, Rev. 12:7-9]

According to Daniel Matson, he explains the importance of viewing the autumn equinox instead of the spring equinox in this context, on his website;

“Robert Bauval first suggested the Orion Theory in his 1994 book, “The Orion Mystery.” His theory is that the Pyramids which he designates as Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, based on the idea that these pyramids were built in the reigns of these Egyptian Pharaoh’s, are aligned depicting the belt stars of Orion—meaning, if one looks south, the Great Pyramid (Khufu) is represented by the lower left belt star known as Al Nitak, and the Great Pyramid is the northeast pyramid. This is logical since viewing Orion at meridian means,  one must look south. However, this Orion Theory puts pyramid construction at 10,500 BC since it holds to a vernal equinox scenario, where Orion is at meridian during dawn at the onset of spring.” 21

Figure 9. The Great Sphinx facing due east with Orion & Sirius rising at its lowest point closest to the Horizon. 22

As Matson states;
“The prophetic view taken here, is that the Giza pyramids were built looking forward down the corridors of time. This requires a view towards the other equinox, at the beginning of autumn when Orion will be at meridian during dawn.”23 This is supported also by the orientation of the Great Sphinx looking due east to the junction of Virgo/Leo at sunrise of the autumnal equinox. About 2000 years ago Orion (Al Nitak) hit the dawn-meridian in its heliacal rising, also the target of the Southern star shaft of the King’s Chamber, on August 26th, coinciding with the meridian passage of Kochab of Ursa Minor, aligned with the Northern star shaft of the Queen’s Chamber. Presently this alignment is on September 20th due to the precession of the equinoxes, making it was quite close to the Autumn Equinox in Sept. of 2017 when the signs similar to Christ’s birth were seen again, as we documented in the opening of this blog. This coordination of star alignments specifically marked by the Great Pyramid star shafts, carries a notable narrative that has gone unnoticed for millennia, that we are revealing here for the first time. This narrative is uncovered as we notice the original meaning of ancient star names marked by the Great Pyramid. Al Nitak of Orion means the “wounded one,” referring to Christ’s sacrifice laying down his life in his first advent, as we saw in the Gen. 3:15 axis. This heliacal rising of Al Nitak, not only coincided with the meridian passage of Kochab of Ursa Minor, meaning-“waiting for him who comes,” in reference to the Second Coming of Christ, but it takes place also with the Sunrise in Leo as seen in Figure 9 above. Even as these Rev. 12 heavenly signs were replayed in 2017, we will find similar signs the years 2028, and 2047. This prophecy of the Sonrise of the Ages forecasts the victorious return of Christ when he defeats and crushes the dragon enemy with a fatal head blow seen also in the star pictures of the Gen. 3:15 axis.

Certainly, the theme of this Sonrise is not unfamiliar, having circulated in the heavens for eons, as seen in the Gen. 3:15 axis. However, the witness of the star shafts of the Great Pyramid to this theme is decidedly news to modern ears. The names in this celestial showcase were changed to the idol gods of Egypt, due to an ancient corruption in the astrology of their star religion, but this darkness only shaded the truth for so long before the Light of the Almighty ultimately prevails. This ancient Egyptian Sonrise marked by the Great Sphinx and embodied in the Great Pyramid, resounds from the Giza Plateau foreshadowing the Son-set marking Christ’s birth seen from Jerusalem in 3 BC, in Figure 10 below.

The signs marking Jesus’ birth took place near the intersection of the ecliptic and the Meridian in Virgo.
Figure 13 below shows the moments of the birth of Christ, marked by the setting of the star Spica, between the setting Sun with the Moon at Virgo’s feet, [Rev. 12:1-2] and the supernova in the Coma Decan, likely visible to the naked eye, at this time.

Malachi 4:2 
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

The word arise” in verse 2, is not only used of the Sun and light in general, but it and two of its derivatives occur in [Isaiah 60:1-3, Jer. 23:5]. As we have seen regarding Jer. 23:5, the planet Jupiter, the sedeq planet is linked with the Messiah, Jesus Christ the righteous zemach-branch, and is one of five primary Old Testament prophecies pertaining to this Branchas the coming promised seed.

According to Matson, the basic idea is that the Pyramid complex is a map of the heavens at a time near the return of Christ. The pyramids show what is to be at meridian (Al Nitak in Orion), while the causeways and the Great Sphinx are aligned east from the pyramids, showing the importance of the rising Sun or other stars rising in the east. The Figure 9 graphic above also shows the Sun in Leo with Orion on the meridian at dawn while simultaneously, Sirius is at its lowest point just above the horizon. As we will see in Part 2 of this blog, the role of Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens, tells a key aspect of the story regarding the fallen Prince and Morning Star.

The point for Matson, was to find a candidate for an alignment on Rosh Hashanah with Orion’s meridian alignment at dawn. Since Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset and signs precede events, it is logical for Rosh Hashanah to begin at sunset on the 20th of September, which then puts Rosh Hashanah on September 21st. This also fits the astronomical scene for the precedent of these events, on Rosh Hashanah at Christ’s birth on Sept. 11th, 3 BC.

With Sept. 21st as the Autumn Equinox, coinciding with Rosh Hashanah and the meridian alignment of Al Nitak at dawn, could Rosh Hashanah be the real factor? The answer to Matson’s key question here is found not only in the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ, but also the history and meaning of Rosh Hashanah. This Hebrew Holiday commemorates God’s Creation of the World, marking the start of a 10-day period called the Days of Awe, a time of repentance culminating in Yom Kippur the Day of AtonementRosh Hashanah originated as an OT royal enthronement ritual, while the “Day of Judgment” elements of the holiday surfaced later. In spite of Rosh Hashanah being the seventh month, it came to designate the New Year. A further significance of Tishri as the seventh month, is found in its consideration as the Sabbath of the year. Blasts on the shofar horn, are the most potent symbol of the holiday. The significance of shofar blasts is alluded to in recalling the Binding of Isaac in [Gen. 22]. The story and the shofar serve as reminders of God’s Covenant with His people-Israel, carrying with them the message of hope, looking forward to the sacrifice and return of Christ. Key aspects of the origins of Rosh Hashanah as the King’s enthronement ritual are found in the 2 Chronicles record below.

We have pointed out in previous blogs, how the dual significance of the Rev. 12:1-2 prophecy, applies not only to the birth of Christ, but to his victorious return also! Even as heavenly signs specifically marked the birth of Jesus Christ, supporting the witness of God’s Word, so we have seen similar sky signs marking the Lord’s Return.
Even as these Rev. 12 heavenly signs were replayed in 2017, we will find similar signs the years 2028, and 2047.
As we have noted in our study of the Blood Moon Tetrad 0f 2014-2015Blood Moons embody key aspects of the heavenly signs that occur “before that great and terrible day of the Lord comes;” [Joel 2:28-32]. The Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses in 2014, along with the Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses on the Lord’s Feasts and Holy days in 2015 are highly significant prophesies before our eyes, marking the end of days, and to the victorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ. A precursor for the King’s coronation as the king stands next to his pillar, is found in 2 Chronicles 23.

Figure 11. The Temple at Jerusalem with the two pillars of Jachin and Boaz at the entrance.

The Two Brass Pillars Jachin and Boaz

2 Chron. 23:11-14 11 Then they brought out the king’s son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king. 12 Now
when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the
house 
of the Lord13 And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes
and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason. 
14 Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the Lord.

2 Chron 23:13 puts this “pillar at the entering in,” and if this is entrance of the temple, then we have a reference to the Temple’s great ornamental pillars of brass called Jachin and Boaz. This agrees with the New Bible Dictionary which states: “The entrance to Solomon’s Temple was flanked by two gigantic bronze pillars, [I Kgs 7:15-22]. It was apparently by one of these that the king stood on ceremonial occasions [II Kings 23:3, II Chron. 23:13].” In II Chron. 34:31King Josiah stood in his place (*H5977omed) and made a covenant before the Lord to keep His commandments. The word translated “place” has the same Hebrew root [*H5975amad] as the word “pillar” above. 24 The King’s rule was blessed in the degree and to the order, where he kept the Covenant of God’s Word in his rule, indicated in the names of the temple pillars.

1 Kings 7:21 And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin: and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz.

According to the New Bible Dictionary in reference to the significance of the names Jachin and Boaz; “the names may be the first words of oracles giving power to the Davidic dynasty: perhaps ‘Yahweh will establish (yakin) thy throne forever’ and ‘In the strength (beoz) of Yahweh shall the king rejoice‘.”25 Thus, as the kings of Israel stood in their place, by their pillar in the temple during the coronation ceremony, so the coronation of the King of kings, seen in the stellar announcement of the birth of Jesus Christ, also marked by one of the four celestial pillars of heaven. In the first phase of the Lord’s appearances on earth, fulfilling Rev. 12:1-2 in the birth of Christ, we can see in the Fig. 13 Virgo image below, the sufferings of Christ are emphasized indicating the primary purpose of his ministry to Israel, as the one-time embodiment of the Passover lamb sacrifice for the sins of Israel. This is detailed in the graphic taking note of the intersection of the Ecliptic and the Celestial Equator. This intersection is one of the Four Corners, or literal Pillars of heaven, also called Cardinal Points which “square the circle” of the Ecliptic, the circle of the zodiac. The intersection point is right at Virgo’s feet, marked by the New Crescent Moon opening the New Year on Rosh-Hashanah, with the birth of Jesus Christ. As the Celestial Equator extends to the horizon it marks the Star Spica [Al-Zemach], the branch and offspring of God the Father, while under Virgo’s feet it bisects the sign Libra. In the Hebrew ZodiacLibra symbolizes the price of redemption being paid by the Lord’s sacrifice. This puts the focus on the purpose of Christ’s ministry to Israel, and the sufferings he had to endure to pay this price of redemption, not only for Israel, but all mankind. The woman’s promised seed is called “the branch” identified with the star Spica in the following references; [Jer. 23:4-6, Jer. 33:14-18, Zech. 3:8].

Figure 12. The Scales of Libra

Primary Constellation #2

There are numerous legal requirements that Jesus Christ had to fulfill if every aspect of the Law was to be upheld as Christ stated, [Matt. 5:18]. In order for Jesus Christ to fulfill the OT law as the legal sacrifice for Israel and all mankind, he had to keep all stated “ordinances of Passover,” [Num. 9:12]. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin, [Heb. 9:22] and only Christ had the sinless and innocent blood qualifying as the perfect sacrifice to redeem mankind. Even Judas after betraying Jesus confessed: “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood;” [Matt.27:4]. This condition is clearly stated in Ex. 12:5, as a lamb without blemish, [I Pet. 1:18-19] with the key truth that it had to be a lamb of the first year, which discounts any hypothesis of a 3-year ministry of Christ. If these conditions were  not met according to the standards of God’s Word, then those partaking in the Passover were cut off from Israel; [Ex. 12:15]. Even more critical was that Jesus himself had to fulfill all these conditions to the last detail, or mankind would remain in a sinful unredeemed state, before the liberating work of the Redeemer of mankind was “finished,” [John 19:30]. In this study our focus is on this important Biblical condition and legal requirement of the OT Law, that the Passover lamb had to be a male lamb of the first year, to fully redeem Israel. In the case of Jesus Christ, he did not fulfill this requirement until he became an adult male of the full age of 30 years old. The gospels record that
Jesus was recognized by John the Baptist as the “Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world,” in 27 AD, [John 1:29, 36] the 30th year since Jesus’ birth in 3BC. The truths told by the sign Libra, or the balances, tell us all men fall short of Jesus Christ paying the perfect redemption price for their brothers [Ps. 49:7-15], because all men are weighed in the balances and found wanting, except Jesus Christ; [Rev. 5:9]. This truth, is seen in the Figure 13 graphic below, as the celestial equator bisects both of Libra’s balances between the Moon and Virgo’s feet, while aligned with the setting Star Spica, marking Christ’s birth.

Figure 13. Sunset as seen from Palestine on September 11th 3 BC, with the Sun in Virgo and the Moon at her feet. 6  [Rev. 12:1-2]

Isaiah 4:2 contains some wonderful details linking directly to the stars of the Constellation Virgo.

Isa. 4:2-3 In that day shall the branch of the LORD the beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. 3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:

The word “beautiful” in verse 2 above corresponds to the meaning of the star “Zavijava” in Virgo, a true trait of the promised seed of the woman. It is truly wonderful to witness the inborn symmetry of God’s Word, flowing from the divine revelation of the Gospel in the Stars, as the pattern of the Stars and the Scriptures unfolds in unison before our eyes. The 2nd phase of the Rev. 12:1-2 prophecy, does not pertain to the sufferings of Christ, but to his Glorious return to install his Millennial Reign, inheriting the throne of the Davidic dynasty marked by the Temple pillars Jachin and Boaz. The “glory” of the promised seed referred to in Isa. 4:2 is also foretold in one of the decans of Virgo known anciently as Coma, the desire of the nations. This was prophesied in God’s Word in Haggai 2.

Haggai 2:6-7 6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

At this center point in history, at the celestial pillar of the Rosh Hashanah, with the Moon at Virgo’s feet, and the setting of the star SpicaAl Zemach, the moments of the birth of Jesus Christ were framed in the heavens. This was followed 3 days later, by the first celestial union of the triple coronation ceremony that took place, beginning in the first Jupiter-Regulus Conjunction in Leo, on Sept. 14th 3 BC. This occurred during the Feast of Tabernacles, which along with Passover divided the sacred calendar in half, reminding us of the luni-solar year evident in the cycle of Jubilees. This also is reflected in the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, with these Blood Moons and Solar eclipses marking the holy feasts, with increasing intensity as we approach the end of days leading to the victorious return of Jesus Christ. Since a Blood Moon Tetrad was completed in 2015 as a celebration of Jubilees on the Hebrew Calendar, we should pay special attention to the crescendo that is being reached, in the compiled Blood Moons and heavenly signs, on the Lord’s feasts and holy days.

With a better understanding of the Great Pyramid Star Shafts and the message of specific stars highlighted by these shafts, we have a clear grasp of how the Great Pyramid [Isa. 19:19-21], witnesses to the Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God.

Isa. 19:19 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
will rescue them.

In Part 2 of this study, we will consider in greater detail the planetary alignments marked by the Ascending and Descending passages of the Great Pyramid around the Rosh Hashanah date of 2017, as they relate to the master-plan of the Giza Plateau. along with Job’s record of Sirius the Dog Star as it tells the rest of the story concerning the fallen Morning Star, whose former seat is now occupied by Christ.

I am truly thankful for all our friends and readers as we stand together in the prevailing spiritual light of God’s Word, ready to help those who are looking for a hand of protection and blessing over and above the darkness of this world.  Be that hand for someone today!

God Bless!
