Birth of Jesus Christ

Biblical Astronomy of the Sufferings and Glory of Christ

During the past week, we were all reminded of the significance of Sept. 11th, not only because of the attacks on the World Trade Center in NYC, but for another much more awe-inspiring reason, the birth of Christ, that took place Tishri 1 on the Hebrew Calendar, [Sept. 11th] in 3 BC. The birth of Christ was marked astronomically by a triple conjunction of Jupiter-Regulus in Leo, the first of which began Sept. 14th, 3 BC, three days following Christ’s birth on the 11th. This triple conjunction took place over about a 7 month period from Sept. 3 BC, including Feb. 2nd of 2 BC, to May 8th of 2 BC.

For some time now, I have wondered about this 3-day gap between the actual birth of Christ, and the astronomical marking of it on Sept. 14th, and it seems to make sense in light a panoramic view of the life of our Saviour, bracketed by the 3 days following his birth compared with the 3 days following his crucifixion, death and resurrection, as he arose from among the dead on the third day. These 3-day periods at the start and finish of his earthly life certainly frame the impact of the Life and sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ, which was so earth-shaking that it was literally documented by two earthquakes, the first with the rending of the Veil of the Temple from top to bottom, [Matt. 27:50-51] signifying among other things the opening of the way to the Holiest of all in the Temple, to all who would come to God through Christ. Secondly, when the angel of the Lord rolled back the stone to Christ’s tomb, witnessing to his once and final, conquering of death for all mankind, for those who come to and accept the Salvation wholeness inherent in Christ, as seen in Matt. 28 below.

Matt. 28:1-7

He Is Risen

28 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; [seismos] for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone [a]from the door, and sat on itHis countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is Risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”

In verse 2 above this earthquake may have resulted from the “ angel of the Lord descended from heaven” when he rolled back the stone from the entrance of Christ’s sepulchure. As the angel sat on this stone it signified that nothing could hold Jesus in the grave, because he had conquered death for all mankind once and for allDuring his ministry in Matthew 24, Christ prophesied that increasing earthquakes, like the labor pains of child-birth, would be a sign and marker of the end times.

As we consider the Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunction in Leo, marking Christ’s birth in 3-2 BC, we should also be aware of the stellar context wherein these signs took place, which I call the [celestial prelude]. With this backdrop we can better grasp how the specific signs of Christ’s birth, like those of Balaam’s great prophecy in Numbers 24, where the star, also identified with the scepter, is coming out of Jacob.

 Num. 24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh, there shall come a star out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and he shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Star out of Jacob and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel“- Star = [H3556-kowkab],1 Figuratively an illustrious Prince who is the star rising out of Jacobholding the scepter as ruler over Israel. We notice the figure of speech utilized in this verse regarding the authority of the sceptre held by the Prince. This “star” linked with the sceptre rising out of Israel, is a celestial reference to the sign of Leo the Lion with specific implications first for it’s brightest luminary, Regulus the king star, and the brightest star on the ecliptic also known as the “heart of the Lion.” The King’s sceptre is the symbol of his power over the heathens and those who oppose his purposes, as he will rule over them with unbending authority or a “rod of iron,” [Ps. 2, Rev. 19:15].

Regulus was known by the ancients as the fixed king star that is linked with this scepter. This fulfills Jacob’s prophecy, that one holding this scepter would arise out of Judah according to Gen. 49. Secondly, the regal authority of this star is established in the king planetJupiter, whose authority as we have just seen, was symbolized by Leo the Lion, of the tribe of Judah that provided the regal stock from which the kingly line of Israel arose, first in King David, and ultimately in Jesus Christ from the “root of David” [Rev. 5:5]. The triple planetary Conjunction of the king planet-Jupiter, with the king star-Regulus in
Leo from 3-2 BC, thus aligns with the prophecy of Genesis 498-10, showing the maturation of the Lion of the Tribe of
Judah. Balaam’s revelation here in Numbers 24:17 provides the Scriptural basis for the connection between the “star of Jacob” [Regulus] and the “SceptreJupiter,” to the advent of Christ the King, who came forth out of Jacob’s genealogical line. Thus we can see maturation of the Lion from cub to the full prowess of the reigning King in the dual elements of Rev. 12, as they apply both his birth and sufferings, to the full glory and authority of his Kingship, as he establishes his kingdom on earth.

The complete details of the correlation between the triple Conjunction of Jupiter and Regulus in 3-2 BC, and the Gen. 49 record, is available on the DVD of “The Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ,” through our bookstore. This unique summary provides in-depth teaching on the celestial pageantry of the birth of Christ, with the history of the Magi and numerous related Biblical Astronomy topics for those who want a deeper look.

An evident and recurring dual theme in Rev. 12 is not only the birth of the King of Kings, but also the birth of his kingdom of everlasting righteousness. Thus we find clear references to this kingdom, in the authority of he who rules with a rod of iron, symbolized in the king’s scepter-Jupiter. In a previous post [The Blood Moon Tetrad and the Rev. 12 Heavenly Signs] we noted how Jupiter was being “birthed” in Virgo, in the time leading up to the Rev. 12 sign on September 23rd, 2017, when Jupiter exits Virgo’s womb area after 42 weeks in retrograde, a period well within the period of human gestation. This fits with the connotations of the Hebrew word for “rule” in Psalm 110:2, linked with the Talmud’s birth idiom. As this emphasis was evident in the heavens in 3-2 BC, at the birth of Christ, so we also saw a concurrent triple Conjunction of Jupiter-Venus taking place in 2015, all in the sign Leo. A key element of these Jupiter-Venus unions was their alignment with Regulus on the ecliptic in Leo in the summer of 2015, carrying not only the original import of Regulus‘ kingly triple coronation, by Jupiter the king planet, but Jupiter’s marking of Venus the Bright and Morning Star is added also [Rev. 2:27-28]. The planetary symbolism of these conjunctions depict Jupiter-the King planet uniting with Venus-the Bright and Morning Star, in alignment with the star Regulus in Leo the Lion of Judah[Rev. 5:5], over the following four months of 2015. We have provided a summary of these planetary unions connected with the Plate 1 graphic at the end of this blog post below.

These planetary unions were followed with added Jupiter-Venus unions taking place in Virgo in 2016-17. This Triple Conjunction of Jupiter-Venus, the two brightest stars in the heavens after the Sun and Moon, is notable especially with the addition of Mercury, leading up to their planetary alignment with Regulus in Leo, forming the Crown of Virgo in the repeat of the Rev. 12:1-2; “Great Wonder in Heaven” on Sept. 23rd 2017. The following list dates  not only the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Leo during the transition from the Hebrew Sabbatical year to the Jubilee year of 2015-16, but other notable planetary conjunctions and heavenly signs in Virgo and Leo during this period:

We can see from this list that the sky was thick with heavenly signs leading up to and including the Final Super Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad.

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple union of Jupiter-Venus aligned with Regulus in Leo, reflects a similar spiritual light in 2015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly sign:  the [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on September 17th, 2015 is announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo above Spica/Al Zimach, 2 years in advance of the repeat of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017!  However, there will be more heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus after this, leading to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo. As we compare Jupiter’s retrograde in 2017, with Jupiter’s movements at the birth of Christ, we find some interesting correlations. First, it was the planet Jupiter that led the Magi to Jerusalem in search of the Promised seed. In [Matt. 2:2,9] the Magi saw Jupiter [his star in the eastG395-Anatole] meaning “in the rising.”2  Jupiter’s annual activities including its retrograde motionbegan according to Dr. Earnest Martin, on Dec. 25th in 2 BC. As Dr. Martin states:

Jupiter arrived at its ordinary time for retrogression and it became stationary among the stars. But this time something unusual happened. In 2 BC as viewed from Jerusalem, Jupiter came to its normal stationary position directly over Bethlehem on December 25th…not only that, the planet assumed its stationary position while in the middle of the Constellation of Virgo, the Virgin. 6 Thus, according to Martin, the same astronomical movement that initiated Jupiter’s 3 Conjunctionwith Regulusits annual retrogression, or retrograde motion would have caused Jupiter to stand still in the heavens for about six days near the intersection of the ecliptic and the Meridian mid-body in Virgo. This occurred in week of the celebration of the Feast of Dedication in December of 2 BC. 3

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple union of Jupiter-Venus aligning with Regulus in Leo, reflected a similar spiritual light in 2015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly signthe [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on September 17th, 2015 is announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo united with Spica/Al Zimach, on this day 2 years in advance of the rewind of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017!  There were however added heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus in the next 2 years, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb in 2017. The July 17th, Venus-Regulus conjunction referred to above, started a series of planets including Jupiter, Venus and Mercury, all uniting with the King Star over the next 4 months.  To understand the significance of Regulus with the birth of Christ, a primary Messianic prophecy must be considered from Genesis 49 concerning the Lion of Judah.

lion-of-judah

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

Genesis 49:8-10
“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be
on the neck of your enemies; 
Your father’s children shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

These verses break down the maturation of the Lion of Judah, from lion cub, to adult Lion, to aged Lion. The specific relationship of this prophecy with the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC was presented as part of my DVD Seminar on the Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christin the segment provided belowThis can also be found on my You-tube channel, with other uniquely informative segments laying out the biblical details and astronomical secrets of the Birth of Christ. Please take a few moments to watch this video segment disclosing unique details of this biblical record.

As we just saw in the video above, the prophecies of Balaam in Numbers corresponding to the Jacob’s prophecies in Genesis 49, because they not only both deal with the destiny of Jacob/Israel in general, but they prophesy of the Promised Seed Jesus Christ specifically. The following verses from Numbers reflect the significance of Balaam’s prophecies related to Israel, in an astronomical context.


Numbers 23:19-24.
19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

21 “He has not observed iniquity in JacobNor has He seen wickedness in Israel.
The Lord his God is with himAnd the shout of a King is among them.
22 God brings them out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox.

23 “For there is no sorcery against JacobNor any divination against Israel.
It now must be said of Jacob and of Israel, ‘Oh, what God has done!’
24 Behold, the people rise up as a great lionAnd lifts himself up like a young lion;
He shall not lie down until it devours the preyAnd drinks the blood of the slain.”


The “Shout of a King” 
here is a direct Messianic prophecy of Christ in verse 21. The references to the 3 stages of the lion’s growth in verse 24 ties into the next chapter in Numbers 24, and relates directly to Gen. 49:8-10.

Numbers 24:9-18
‘He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?’[a]

Blessed is he who blesses you, And cursed is he who curses you.”

10 Then Balak’s anger was aroused against Balaam, and he struck his hands together; and Balak said to Balaam, “I called you to curse my enemies, and look, you have bountifully blessed them these three times!
11 Now therefore, flee to your place. I said I would greatly honor you, but in fact, the Lord has kept you back from honor.”

12 So Balaam said to Balak, “Did I not also speak to your messengers whom you sent to me, saying,
13 ‘If Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the Lord,
to do good or bad of my own will. What the Lord says, that I must speak’?
14 And now, indeed, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the latter days.”

Num. 24:2 Balaam saw Israel abiding in their tents according to their tribes…

Balaam’s Fourth Prophecy

15 So he took up his oracle and said: “The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, And the utterance of the man whose eyes are opened;
16 The utterance of him who hears the words of GodAnd has the knowledge of the Most High,
Who sees the vision of the AlmightyWho falls down, with eyes wide open:

17 I see Him, but not now; I behold Him, but not near; A Star shall come out of Jacob;
A Scepter shall rise out of Israel, And batter the brow of Moab, And destroy all the sons of tumult.[b]

18 “And Edom shall be a possession; Seir also, his enemies, shall be a possessionWhile Israel does valiantly.
19 Out of Jacob One shall have dominionAnd destroy the remains of the city.”

These “star and scepter” prophecies were fulfilled in Jesus’ Birth, Ministry, Resurrection and Ascension, but his kingdom yet remains to be established, when all the Lord’s enemies will become his possession. The Star of the Messiah in Num. 24:17 is linked to Jupiter-the Scepter, since it was the King planet that the Magi saw “in the east,” [Matt. 2:2] or in [heliacal] rising, that led the Magi to the Promised Seed. In the King planet’s regular 12-year [11.86 year] orbit around the Sun, Jupiter also enters the constellation Leo every 12 years. With every 7th cycle of Jupiter’s 12-year visitation to LeoJupiter shares 2 unions with Regulus, translating into 2 Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunctions every 83 years; [11.86 x 7=83.02]. These are based on the retrograde motion of Jupiter which appears from earth to crown or circle the King Star on these occasions. As a testament to the Creator’s 7-fold temporal order written in the heavens, when seven of these 83 year Jupiter cycles are calculated, we arrive at a total of 581 years, or 7 x (7×12). The helical rising of Jupiter with Regulus also occurs once every 83 years, during Jupiter’s regular visits to Leo. However, the King Planet does not normally share a triple conjunction with Regulus except when Jupiter is in retrograde motion. As it happens, we were approaching one of Jupiter’s normal unions with Regulus on August 11th, 2015. It has been determined that the birth of Christ took place during the seventh 83-year cycle, and on the seventh cycle of Jupiter’s seven 83-year cycles. This also coincided with the first day of the holiest 7th month on the Hebrew Calendar, Sept. 11th 3 BC. This first day of Tishri was also Rosh Hashannah/Hebrew New Year’s Day, when all the Kings of Israel and Judah calculated the start of their respective reigns regardless of when they actually began. With Jesus Christ as the King of Kings, it is fitting that he should be born on this key day in the 7th and holiest month on the Creator’s divine Calendar, that also holds the 7th Feast of the Lord, the Feast of Tabernacles; [Lev. 23, Luke 1-2].

With a proper Biblical, historical and astronomical perspective of the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of Christ, we can take a detailed comparative look at the heavenly signs highlighted during the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. In the graphic below we can see Jupiter, Regulus and Venus formed a large celestial triangle on the western horizon after sundown, which draws closer together with the approach of August 2015We also find a cluster of signs from the 5th to the 11th of August all around Regulus in Leo. As these planets take their turn in pairs, they each get their chance to dance with the King Star Regulus.

With this emphasis on Regulus it focuses attention on Gen. 49:10, where the “Lawgiver from between the feet “[RegelHebrew root word for Regulus,”] wields the power of his everlasting royal Scepter-Jupiter. The same Hebrew word “scepter” is utilized in both Gen. 49:10 and Num. 24:17, as the authority of the King of Kings, delivered to him who rules the nations with a rod of iron forever. With this planetary line-up paying homage to the King Star-Regulus, it affords those with eyes to see and ears to hear, strong hope for the arrival of the King and his Kingdom of Righteousness. Listed below is the planetary roll-call of suitors for Regulus and the Lion of Zion from July to October 2015, closing out the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

Later that same day Mercury reached close conjunction with Regulus-the King Star, forming the tightest of celestial triangles, in the Lion of Judah.

This impressive parade of planets on the dance card with the King Star-Regulus in August of 2015, gets our attention as it contributes to our understanding not only of the Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunctions marking the birth of Christ, related to the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo, but also how these signs apply to the victorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ in Glory, as seen in the context of the culmination and climax of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy- Part 2.

This study is presented as part of our annual series for Pi Day, March 14th, [3.14] as it pertains to the greatest Monument of the Pi Ratio on the Planet-The Great Pyramid.

Part One of this study provides a basis of Biblical Truth regarding the Monuments of the Giza Plateau, the Great Sphinx and The Great Pyramid. As shown previously, the Great Sphinx is a Messianic Prophecy in Stone and in the stars in reference to the birth of Christ.

This prophecy recorded in the Sphinx, is situated before the Great Pyramid where the Body of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, is united with the Head of the woman-Virgo. A root study of the word “sphinx” shows it derives from the Greek word “sphiggo,” meaning to bind closely together seen in the binding of the Mazzaroth circle, marked by Christ’s birth in Virgo on Sept. 11th 3 BC, symbolizing his embodiment of the Capstone or Chief Cornerstone of the Great Pyramid. Biblically we find reference of this in the Hebrew [H7218 “rosh,” and its root “roshah;” H7222] in [Ps. 118:22, Isa. 2:2-4, Zech. 4:2-7]. 1 There are also stellar references in Job [Job 38:13-15] that link to the Great Pyramid reflecting its ancient origins since Job is the oldest book in Biblical canon. Job well knew that the Earth spins on its axis in an orbit around the Sun having no visible means of support; (Job 26:7). However the Earth was represented in the mathematics of the Great Pyramid built upon four foundation stones, with it’s chief cornerstone or missing capstone completing the structure as a gnomon geometrically, but most of all Spiritually.

One of the concepts introduced in Part 1 was the idea that the higher principles of the Great Pyramid were seen in a cruder form in the step-pyramids and ziggurats of Babylon and ancient Ur by Cush and his son Nimrod. But whether or not the step-pyramids or the smooth sided Giza pyramids were built first, The Great Pyramid does not belong in the same class as other Pyramids due to it advanced passages, and the precision of its orientation to the cardinal points, with the alignments of its Star-shafts, and many other features that make it the greatest wonder of the ancient world. Also, the comparative engineering skills in the time the Great Pyramid was built, to the more recent pyramids, illustrate an obvious degradation. Since the construction of this singular edifice can still not be matched with all of man’s modern tech, it remains a fruitless effort to try to lump the apex of pyramid building principles into “evolutionary concepts” to try to explain the development of other pyramids, cannot be justified. The Great Pyramid is clearly in a class by itself, even without its various Biblical aspects, adding sacred evidence to its already insurmountable secular, scientific, mathematical, geometric, geodetic, celestial, ad infinitum, make this point without controversy. It is supported in many ancient histories that an enlightened person answering the profile of Enoch– the 7th from Adam was the builder and architect of the Great Pyramid in Egypt, the greatest surviving wonder of the World. This is supported by its sacred elements foreshadowing the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle below.

Jude 14-15“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment upon all… 

As the primary touchstone and “altar” [Isa. 19] prophesying of the Promised Seed the Great Pyramid sums up the divine standard for celestial, architectural, and geometric principles like no other structure in human history. Other pyramids in various cultures around the world are only a shadow of what the Great Pyramid stands for on the Giza Plateau.

In Job 38:4-7, Earth is figuratively compared to a building. “Where were you when I laid the FOUNDATIONS of the Earth? Declare, if you have understanding. Who laid the MEASURES thereof, if you knowest? or who stretched the LINE upon it? Whereupon are the FOUNDATIONS thereof fastened? or who laid the CORNER STONE thereof; When the MORNING STARS sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” 

Observations revealed in the construction of the Great Pyramid, include: The spherical shape of the Earth incorporating allowances for polar flattening, the length of the earth’s axes of rotation, the precession of the equinoxes, with the earth’s weight among others, as other examples of the design specs that sets the Great Pyramid apart from other pyramids. William Fix in his book “Pyramid Odyssey” showed a direct relation between the Pyramid’s dimensions and the size of the Earth. He found values not only for the Pyramid’s height in direct relation to the Earth’s Polar Radius but also the perimeter at the base sockets in the same ratio for the best figures of the circumference of the Earth at the Equator. Using the most accurate Geodetic surveys he found the Great Pyramid to be a scale model of the Earth at a 1:43,200 ratio, which he accomplished with the novel idea of including the Pyramid’s base into his calculations.

Figure 1. The Pyramid Geometric Model of Planet Earth.

An example of the corruption of principles contained in the Great Pyramid regarding the measures and dimensions of our planet as seen in the ziggurats is referred to by Professor Menon:

We can deduce that the shape of the the Earth, which appears to have served as a model for these temples, was a terraced pyramid with corners pointing to the South, West, North and East. The Ziggurats at Ur, Uruk and Babylon reached a height of 300 feet. The Ziggurat of Nabu at Barsipku was called the House of the seven bonds of Heaven and Earth, and was in seven stages said to be painted in seven planetary colors.” 2

The emphasis on the planetary bodies seen in these ziggurats is one indicator of the influence of astrology found in these temple-towers inspired and built by Cush and Nimrod. However the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs emphasized the message of certain stars, which are seen in the multiple stellar links exhibited in the star-shafts of the Great Pyramid. As a case in point the most precise orientation to the cardinal points of any man-made structure in history, was mimicked with less accuracy in the ziggurat references above.

The Pyramid is scientifically placed on the earth, with its four sides facing accurately North, South, East and West. It is built in the geographical center of the earth’s land mass, and it stands on the longest land contact Meridian on the earth’s surface. It is designed on the basis of the Pi ratio, as the mathematical ratio governing the entire physical Universe. The root word for ‘Giza’ in Arabic means: edge, or border, and since the Great Pyramid of Giza is is called a boundary stone not only for ancient Egypt but the entire planet, its a fitting title. This exhibits how the Great Pyramid functions as both an altar of sacrifice for the Promised Seed, and as a witness for Jesus Christ.

Figure 2. The Great Pyramid at the center of the world’s land mass.

The Pyramid’s design reflected an accurate model of the Earth’s globe, which only holds true at a precise pyramid slope angle of 51 degrees 51 minutes 14 seconds, that just happens to be the Great Pyramid’s exact slope angle, because the ratio of the pyramid height to its base perimeter is exactly 2 pi. In other words as the height of the pyramid relates to its perimeter at its base, so the radius of a circle relates to the circle’s circumference, which is only true at the exact angle of 51 degrees 51 minutes 14 seconds.

Figure 3. The Great Pyramid, the Pi Ratio and Squaring the Circle.

Dr. Joseph Seiss, the author of “The Gospel in the Stars,” and “Great Pyramid: A Miracle in Stone,” and other works, shows how the Pyramid lies in the center of gravity of the continents, dividing earth’s landmass into approximately equal quarters. The north-south axis (31 degrees East of Greenwich) is the longest land meridian, with the east-west axis (30 degrees North) form the longest land parallel on the globe. This makes the Great Pyramid at Giza the only place on the globe where these key terrestrial lines can intersect on the Earth’s surface. Thus, the Great Pyramid is at the very center of the Earth’s landmass. Enoch its builder by revelation from God was shown this advanced knowledge of earth’s geography, allowing him the understanding and foresight of the size, shape and position of each of the continents, granted him a fully formed and comprehensive global view of our planet at an early epoch of human history shared by few others.

By corrupting the perfection of the Great Pyramid in the Patriarchal Age, Cush and Nimrod attempted to obfuscate the stone witnesses of the Celestial Gospel by removing the emphasis of the Promised Seed in the two witnesses of the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid, by promoting ziggurats and other pyramids that did not further the witness of the Promised Seed in the Original, but instead promoted the idols of false star religions, while copying many of the sacred geometric and architectural principles of the original, in the context of various idol trinities. Nimrod accomplished this in his self-identification with the decan of Orion as one of the most prominent and easily identifiable star groups in the heavens.

Figure 4. Orion’s Belt Stars mirrored in the Giza Pyramids.

In connection with some of these ancient mystery cults, Orion the mighty Hunter was represented to have died in a very similar way as Osiris, as part of the Egyptian trinity of Isis, Osiris and Horus. Upon the death of Osiris, he was translated to heaven, which “according to the Persian records, show Nimrod deified after his death by the name Orion.” 3  Hislop goes on to document how this link between the deaths of Osiris and Nimrod formed the central theme of not only the idolatry of Egypt, but the death of the gods of many ancient mystery cults like Tammuz, Bacchus and Adonis. Hislop states: “As the women of Egypt wept for Osiris, and the Phoenician and Assyrian women wept for Tammuz, so in Greece and Rome the women wept for Bacchus-the Bewailed or lamented one.” 4  [Ezek. 8:14]

This becomes more interesting when we consider the modern revival of the Orion Correlation Theory by modern theorists like Robert Bauval, show central activities in the star religion of ancient Egypt as funeral rites projecting the souls of the dead to the afterlife in the heavens, linked to certain prominent star groups.

Figure 5.

The Pyramid texts reflect the corruption of the Egyptian Star religion of the original prophecy of the Promised Seed-Jesus Christ in [Gen. 3:15] versus the serpent’s seed, seen in the Orisian trinity as stated below;

Isis comes to thee (Osiris) joyous in thy love, Your seed rises in her, penetrating like Sirius. The penetrating Horus comes forth from thee in his name of Horus-who-is-in-Sirius…5

Another example of this idolatrous substitution is found in the Akkadian language in reference to the Constellation Aries. The Akkadian name for Aries was Bara-ziggar; “Bar” meaning “altar” or sacrifice, and “ziggar” means right making; so the full name is the righteous sacrifice. 6

This refers to the corruption not only of the Pyramid’s purpose as a witness in Stone to Jesus the Promised Seed, but also its application to the Celestial Gospel as the only Testament to God’s Word in the Patriarchal Administration. Nirmood’s influence at the basis of this corruption can still be seen today in the Ziggurat of Nineveh still known as Birs Nimroud, of which Bullinger provides a description from Chesney:

“About 5 miles S.W. of Hillah, the most remarkable of all ruins the Birs Nimroud of the Arabs, rises to a height of 153 feet above the plain from a base covering a square of 400 feet or almost 4 acres. It is constructed of kiln dried bricks in seven stages, to correspond with the planets to which they are dedicated; the lowermost black, the color of Saturn, next Orange for Jupiter, the third Red for Mars and so on. These stages were surmounted by a lofty tower, on the summit of which we are told, were signs of the zodiac and other astronomical figures; thus having [as should have been translated] a representation of the heavens, instead of a top which reached unto heaven.” 7

Figure 6. The Star shaft alignments of the Great Pyramid.

Image result for great pyramid star shaft alignments at construction

The passage and star shaft system’s of the Great Pyramid and their stellar alignments are far more complex and developed than those of any other pyramids. The Pyramid’s Descending Passage, was aligned to the the star Thuban of Draco, representing the evil influences of the dragon star that embodied the North Pole at the time the Great Pyramid was built, [Job 26:13] the star alignments serving as a contributing factor to the high precision of the pyramid’s orientation to the cardinal points of the compass. Here the dragon led the way unto destruction and death, on the Descending Passage bound for the Pit under the base of this pyramidal structure. In Deut. 30:15-20 just as God has set before men the ways of life and death, so He has incorporated these paths in the Ascending and Descending Passages of the Great Pyramid. As one path descends in this passage of the Great Pyramid, nearly a quarter of the way down this Descending Passage we come upon the Ascending Passage, marking a new path of life, out of sin representing God’s salvation for mankind-first for Israel in the Exodus and later in the Age of Grace for the Church in Christ.

Figure 7. The Precession of the Pole star from Thuban of Draco to Polaris as seen in the Northern Star Shafts of the Great Pyramid.

The Ascending Passage ultimately leads to what is known as the King’s Chamber, where we find one of the earliest examples of a Pythagorean triangle – A 3,4,5 triangle. The ratio of the north or south wall diagonal to the length of the chamber, to the cubic diagonal of the chamber is exactly in the ratio of 3:4:5. The King’s Chamber is also unique because it matches the dimensions of the holiest of all in the Temple and Tabernacle of Israel. Amazingly this correspondence to the the sacred design architecture of the holiest aspects of the Hebrew Temple is established in the coffer of the King’s Chamber mirroring the measures of the Ark of the Covenant [Ex. 25:10], showing the same divine Designer behind the sacred architecture of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle and the Great Pyramid. This shows another aspect of the prophecies of the Great Pyramid, as it embodies the sacred dimensions of the same heavenly vision of the Tabernacle and Solomon’s Temple, millenia prior to their existence. As part of the King’s Chamber on the Pyramid’s Ascending Passage, it also speaks to the Believer’s of the Church Age, which are found in the Apostle’s Scriptural doctrine, as Peter states while addressing the Sanhedrin;

[Acts 4:10-12]
10 let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 11 This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone. 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

In spite of what Oprah tells us, I will stick with the Apostle Peter on this one! Peter continues this theme of the Great Pyramid in his first Epistle;

[1 Peter 2:4-8]
if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus ChristThere-fore it is also contained in the Scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion A chief corner-stone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who [b]are disobedient, The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief Corner-stoneand A stone of stumbling And a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

We have spoken of the Great Pyramid as one of two of the greatest witnesses to Christ, in Stone . In the language of this Chief Cornerstone these truths come to bear. It is a well known fact that the capstone of the Great Pyramid is missing, which prophesy’s of its need for completion, as we await the return of Christ. As the name indicates, the capstone is placed at the apex of the pyramidal structure, the rightful place of the head-stone, at the top, embodying the name above all names that every knee shall bow to and every tongue confess-that of Jesus Christ as Lord, a place where only the capstone fits.

The capstone is also called a “pyramidion” because it is a perfect model in miniature, completing the entire pyramid structure. The Apostle Paul also wrote in the Epistle of Ephesians, chiming in with Peter in light of the “living Stones” of the Church Age; [Eph.2:20-22]

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

As the measures and angles of this Chief Cornerstone are unique, they set the angles and geometry for the entire structure, so that “all the building fitly framed together,” grows in the unity of the head of the spiritual body of the Church in Christ. Hereby we dwell in the presence of the Almighty in Christ for all eternity. It was on the first day of the opening of the Age of Grace, on the day of Pentecost in 28 AD, when the twelve Apostles standing in the Herod’s Temple of Stone, first spoke in tongues, [Acts 2:1-4], that the first stones of this Great spiritual edifice of the Church of Grace were laid, by God’s Hand. Since that day this awesome temple grows day-by-day until the Lord Jesus Christ comes to completely redeem, deliver and endow the members of his spiritual body-the church with our new incorruptible bodies for eternity, [I Cor. 15:51-55].

Comments Off on Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy- Part 2.

Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy

One of the fascinating realities of Biblical Astronomy is that God first wrote the truths of His Word in the Heavens, [Ps. 19] before they were ever recorded in Scripture. As we have seen in numerous studies on this blog and website, the first Messianic prophecy in Scripture [Gen. 3:14-15] has various pictorial representations in the stars as seen the constellations Ophiuchus, Scorpius, Hercules, and Orion to name a few. The Mazzaroth or Celestial Gospel was first addressed to the Age of the Biblical Patriarchs, from Adam to Moses. One of the goals of the Try-God sites has been to research the principles that unlock the keys of the Celestial Gospel and  witness to the truths God put in the heavens in coordination with His Written Word. Even as prophecies of the Blood Moons were spoken by the Apostle Peter during his opening address, reverberating through the Age of Grace [Acts 2], so the Book of Job is the only Book of the Bible other than Genesis that was specifically addressed to the Age or Administration of the Bible Patriarchs. As such, it is this oldest book of Biblical canon that discloses the monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy in their unique role as witnesses to the Celestial Gospel. A Biblical Administration is “a period of time in God’s historical and spiritual timetable during which God deals with man in a particular way. It is governed by principles or spiritual truths that may be unique unto itself. In rightly dividing the Word of Truth, we must understand that Biblical Administrations have to remain within the boundaries or confines in which God has placed them within His Word. The rules of life change in these various time periods, so we must see each administration within its distinct context. When we investigate ‘to whom’ a particular Scripture is addressed, we must also see which Biblical Administration governs the rules.” 1

Since Christ is the end of the Law, we are no longer subject to the dictates of Old Testament Law, because we live by the higher Law of the Love of God, upon which as Jesus said “hang all the law and commandments.” Yet the accuracy of these ordinances of heaven continue to set the standard for truth in the important area of calendars and timekeeping that man continues to apply in modern times according to the perpetual Covenant of Day and Night [Jer. 33:20 -22]. In the Creator’s Eternal and Omniscient wisdom He instituted a perfect symmetry in these Biblical Administrations so the foundations of one supported the next. This accounts for the trait in a “mandates from heaven,” that their truth can remain applicable beyond the scope of its original Biblical Administration.

The Great Sphinx is the only Anti-diluvian monument that unifies the first and last signs of the Biblical Mazzaroth in the head of the woman Virgo with the body of the Lion Leo.

Rev. 22:12-13
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the [f]Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega not only in Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, but also from Virgo to Leo in the Celestial Gospel of the Mazzaroth, represented in the Great Stone Monument of the Sphinx on the Giza Plateau. We find these landmarks of the Alpha and Omega 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.” Virgo’s head is seen in Fig. 1, just below & adjacent to the star Denebola in the tail of the Lion, unifying the circle of the zodiac. The Sphinx also unifies the Biblical canon, establishing the chronological order of God’s written revelation, in the Bible’s earliest book of Job.

The first level crowning of Virgo also foreshadowed the Celestial Sphinx prophecy of the birth of Christ, 3 days prior to the 1st of 3 Jupiter-Regulus conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, pictured below [Fig. 1].

Figure 1. The Celestial Sphinx as seen from Jerusalem on Sept. 14th with Jupiter-Regulus union. 2

head of a woman and body of a lion

Job 19:23-25 
Oh that my words were now written! Oh that they were printed in a book! [24] That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock forever! [25] For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

These verses are indicative not only of Job’s knowledge prophesying of his coming redeemer, but of his faith that his redeemer would stand at a future day upon the earth. This knowledge directly corresponds both, to a witness  engraved in rock forever, remaining unto our day, that testifies to the celestial and written gospels. The word “For,” beginning verse 25, grammatically depicts the purpose of Job’s reference to a monumental witness in stone, whose longevity has lasted into our day, as a witness to the redeemer that Job foresaw so long ago. Thus Job’s reference, in this majestic declaration of his redeemer, graven in rock forever, is readily linked with this enduring memorial on the Giza plateau, analogous with the prophecy written in the stars between Leo and VirgoJob’s words certainly stand out as a reference to the witness of the stars in stone, a witness God provided to the Biblical Patriarchs written by Job, enshrining these sacred stone landmarks of the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid as unique testaments of the truths of the Celestial and Scriptural Gospels. To further cement the link between the Great Sphinx and the Scriptures, let’s take a look at Job 38:

The witness of Scripture continues in the Book of Job, which contains more overt astronomical references, with Biblical constellation names than any other book in the Bible.

The Famed Star Cluster of the Pleiades.

star cluster

Job 38:31-33
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?

From a Biblical perspective outside the Books of Genesis and Job, God revealed His Word and Will to the Patriarchs in the stellar witness and celestial narrative of the Promised redeemer of mankind. When we consider the Hebrew word “mazzaroth,” we find a very early reference to the 12 signs of the zodiac, occurring only in Job. There are other later references to the 12 signs of the ecliptic in Scripture, but this gives us more evidence of the antiquity of this knowledge of the entire zodiac, in the context of the Biblical Patriarchs. This idea alone flies in the face of evolutionary archaeology which has not taken this Biblical evidence into account in its historical view of human knowledge of the entire zodiac. Among the earliest overt astronomical references in all of Scripture, Job lays an indispensable basis for the ordinances of heaven, or “statutes from the Creator as laws of Nature that were permanently binding.” The universal influence of the 365-day calendar and the division of the Mazzaroth circle into 12 equal sections of 30-days each, represent two undeniable innovations in the history of Astronomy forming a foundation upon which the rest of ancient Astronomy and timekeeping were built. Thus the Biblical records of Job based on Noah, establish the advanced astronomical practice of the Biblical Patriarchs, providing a basis from which the roots of ancient Astronomy and studies in Archaeo-Astronomy can be traced in their true context.

When Job spoke these words however, the Bible, or even the Pentateuch had not been completed yet by Moses the lawgiver. Thus, we see in [Job 19:23], Job’s desire that his book would be part of the sacred written oracles tied to the bedrock truths of the Great Sphinx, engraved in stone as a testimony to his coming redeemer.

The word “graven” *H2710 [chaqaq] 3 in Job 19:24 means: to cut, carve, hew, square, quarry, mason or engrave. This is the same word translated as “lawgiver” in Gen. 49:10, and is the same root for the word “ordinances” in Job 38:33, in the sense that the ordinances or laws of God and nature, were many times engraved in stone, even as the 10 Commandments were by the “finger of God.” As we say God’s Word is “set in stone.” An important point to realize regarding this word [chaqaq] is that it is also translated as “Lawgiver” in Deut. 33:21 and “governors” in Judges 5:14. This relates to another ancient Egyptian name of the Sphinx;

Bel-hit, which means the “Lord who cometh” as seen in Deut. 33:21. Deuteronomy’s 33rd chapter includes  the Song of Moses, as the 5th chapter of Judges contains the Song of Deborah, both of which list the Tribes of Israel. Another occurrence of “Lawgiver” is seen below in Genesis 49, also a listing of the Tribes of Israel, all of which refer to the Biblical zodiac, containing celestial and Scriptural links to each of the tribes. These Biblical lists of the 12 tribes of Israel are refined in the discussion of the breastplate of Israel’s High Priest, that models the structure and symbolism of the Mazzaroth. Another occurrence of this word [chaqaq]  is found in Jeremiah.

35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.

In Jer. 31:35 the root of this word [chaqaq] is used of the light of the celestial ordinances of the Sun by day, and the Moon and stars by night, [Gen.1:16-18]. The ordinances of God’s Covenant with the seed of Abraham were first written with the finger of God in the rock of His holy mountain and given to Moses the lawgiver, [Ex. 24:12 31:18, 32:16]. This verifies the relation between God’s celestial witness and His word written in the Scriptures [Ps. 19], memorialized in stone. It is a known historical and archaeological fact that the Great Sphinx was carved out of a rock formation on the Giza plateau, which is consistent with the testimony of God’s Word in Job 19:23, where the word “rock” [*H6697] means “a cliff, sharp rock compressed, or boulder.”4 We can see the intimate link between God’s stellar witness of His ordinances fulfilled in His covenant with the seed of Israel in verse 36 above. The promised seed was consummated in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jeremiah‘s key point is that the celestial witness of God’s Covenant with Day and Night [Jer. 33:20-26], has not ceased and no one is able to halt these celestial cycles and seasons set in motion by the Creator, thus the surety of the return of His promised seed for his people is set in the firmament, in stone, in Scripture, and irreversibly embodied in the Man Christ Jesus!

The union of the celestial signs of Leo the lion, with the woman Virgo in the female-headed Great Sphinx also depicts the life of Jesus, from birth, starting with the setting of Spica on September 11th, 3 BC. This is depicted in Gen. 49:9 as his human maturation from lion’s whelp, where his prey is provided for him, to stalking his own prey, unto his ultimate victory casting down and rending the dragon. This is the three-fold theme that ties directly to the celestial wonders of Revelation 12, linking God’s Word together with His stellar revelation. We have seen this set for us at the canonical start and finish of both the Biblical and stellar gospels, forming a parallel testimony of the Scriptures with the stars.

This mirrors the celestial symbolism of the Jupiter-Regulus triple unions seen in Genesis 49:9 depicting the growth cycle of the lion from whelp, to adult lion, to the aged lion at rest. This is another example of the corrupting influence of myth that still retains elements of the truth it hides. This triple Conjunction of Jupiter and Regulus in Leo marking the birth of Christ, also exemplifies the narrative in the entire zodiac, the great stellar witness of the ages that embodies God’s first revelation to the Patriarchs, beginning with Adam. As the star names of the 12 Constellations of the Mazzaroth with each of their decans relate varying aspects of the nature, sufferings and glory of the Promised Seed, so this witness is summarized in the first and last zodiacal signs that compromise the Great Sphinx.

Gen 49:10
The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah“- “sceptre” is shebet in the Hebrew, the same word used in Numbers 24:17; referring to the “star out of Jacob and sceptre out of Israel.” This star out of Jacob is a clear reference to the king planet Jupiter which is covered in detail in the Astronomy of the Birth of Christ section of our try-god.com web-site.

lawgiver from between his feet“- Regulus the king star and the brightest star in Leo. “The Arabic word “regel” means “foot” and is identical in meaning to the Aramaic word “regla” and the Hebrew word “regel” tying in with “from between his feet” above.” In this one verse the Lion of Judah, Leo, intertwined with the lawgiver coming from between his feet, symbolizing the king star Regulus [Psalm 60:9]. This gives a clear Biblical picture of the stellar aspects of the Jupiter-Regulus triple union in Leo the lion of the tribe of Judah revealed in the 3 aspects of Genesis 49:9!

Lawgiver“- *H2710 [chaqaq] meaning; to cut or engrave, inscribe, establish, ordain, to decree, leadership, a ruler, a lawgiver; a scepter.5 It occurs 19 times in the Hebrew O.T. The main meaning is “writing or drawing in the sense of etching [Isa. 30:8; in a book] The root can mean to enact a decree [In Prov. 8:15 its used of a governor decreeing justice with wisdom.] This word [chaqaq] attests to the power of the coordinated decrees of God’s Word first written in the stars, then later in stone and in the Scriptures, providing a great precedent for the idea of all language being rooted in the celestial alphabet. [Ex. 32:13-16].

Finally the Word (logos) was made flesh in Jesus Christ, and God’s Word incarnate dwelt with us. These manifold witnesses to God’s omnipotent Glory and Grace, testify to the awesome beauty and Symmetry inherent in the mathematical precepts found at the basis of Creation. As the Red Thread and master key to the expression and interpretation of God’s Word, Jesus is the lawgiver, after the form of Moses, the ultimate decree of righteous judgment as the embodiment of the Word made flesh.

Psalm 19:1-5

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The word “line” in verse four refers to the ecliptic as the path in the Sun’s Tabernacle, at the end of the verse. These 12 houses or “Tabernacles of the Sun” refer to the 12 signs of the zodiac and the 12 tribes of Israel, the Bride of the Bridegroom. Here, the Bible compares the Sun to a Bridegroom in verse 5, running a race-course through the circuit of heaven, the 12 signs of the ecliptic and their decans. The Great Sphinx elucidates the details of the 19th Psalm because it unifies these Tabernacles of the Sun, first with Virgo, the woman, the Bride-Israel and last with Leo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Thus, all the tribes are presented to the Lord prepped for the marriage supper of the Lamb, preserved in this Great Stone Monument of the ages. As these magnificent monolithic witnesses to the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs, the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid have preserved the principles of Biblical Astronomy timelessly, they embody God’s original truth.

The power of the Celestial Gospels is truly awesome, but due to the corrupting power of Astrology it has been misunderstood. We see below how mankind during the times after Noah’s Flood shared a common language, and the tremendous benefits this afforded the people as a result. One of these potent benefits is seen in the universal witness of the stars, which has literally spoken to every nation and kindred on the face of the earth. As the first 4 verses of the 19th Psalm declare, their voice or the teachings of the stars in their courses, have spoken clearly to all the earth and their words have been heard to the ends of the earth[Ps. 19:3-4]. This 19th Psalm (The Song of Creation) whose witness has spoken to mankind since the beginning with Adam exhibits a very intriguing structure: the first six verses pertaining to God’s Revelation written in the Heavens, employ verbs that are literary in nature. The second part of this Psalm pertains to God’s written revelation in His Word, and employs verbs that are astronomical in nature. The first set of verses refer to God’s Revelation as Creator, (ELOHIM), while the second set is the Revelation of God as (JEHOVAH) in His Covenant relationship to His people.This two part structure of the 19th Psalm is set in direct association and correspondence, even as God’s Word supports and witnesses God’s Works and vice versa.

Figuratively, the Sun is a symbol of the promised seed–Jesus Christ, weaving his way through the circular path of the ecliptic and the 12 houses of the Hebrew Mazzaroth, giving us the basic relationship between God’s earthly seed and His heavenly seed.

Gen. 22:17-18
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed My voice. [Num. 24:7]

Here we find the true godly context of a comparison between the seed of Abraham and the stars of heaven. This truth was corrupted in astrological doctrines going back to Cush and Nimrod. An example of Nimrod’s corrupting influence of God’s Word written in the heavens is evident where he egotistically identifies himself with Orionthe hunter,” one of the most conspicuous Decans in the heavens, located on the celestial equator, intersecting the star groups of the ecliptic at the equinoxes. Sirius-the brightest star in the skies after the Sun and Moon, is aligned with Orion’s belt, prominent not only in Babylon but also ancient Egypt. Nimrod wanted to destroy the positive links between Sirius and Orion as seen in the Great Pyramid [more on his in Part 2] by inserting himself in the role of “Orion the hunter.”

Gen 10:8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

“Cush begat Nimrod”-  Cush means Chaos, or the “confounder”; in reference to he that causes confusion and error regarding truth.7 “Bel” also signified “the Confounder” or the god of chaos. 8 To trace the ancient usage of this word we find that it was contracted from the Aramaic form of “Baal,” the name of the main Babylonian triune god linked with Anu and Enki, found in the Epic of Gilgamesh. This idol system corresponds to the Greek god Zeus, or Jupiter in the Roman pantheon, [Isa. 46:1, Jer. 50:2, 51:34-58]The meaning of “Belial,” is also related to “Bel” seen from multiple viewpoints. First, the Hebrew roots of Belial, with the Masoretic vowels “beli”=without, and ya`al”=profit, gives a meaning of “worthless.” Secondly, Belial can also be derived from the Hebrew word “bala” meaning to swallow up, engulf. This describes one who is engulfed or swallowed up by the dragon, becoming worthless and unredeemable in the sight of the true God. The unwavering goal of the men of Belial is to corrupt God’s Word, which in the Patriarchal Age involved the corruption of the Celestial Gospel, since there was no written divine oracle until the time of Moses. Cush was a Patriarch of evil, and Nimrod his son carried the practice of evil exceedingly beyond his father, establishing and systematically working idolatry into civilization, being the equivalent of Cain after the flood.

began“- Nimrod “began” setting the standard of evil established in the “way of Cain,” following the flood.

“mighty”- marad; rebel= we will rebel. Nimrod organized people in cities, at first for protection against the wild beasts. A hero, tyrant & champion of evil, he lorded his power over men. He systemized the conquest of other nations with the use of military might, for the first time after the flood. This had the effect of elevating Nimrod as the protector of the people, above God in the eyes of the conquered, which he bolstered in linking himself with Orion in the heavens.

Gen 10:9-10 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said; {Nimrod’s name was a proverb for a hunter} Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. 10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

“mighty hunter before the LORD”-As a mighty hunter in defiance of God, he cleared the land of the beasts that threatened the people, and by bold and daring deeds in hunting beasts and kingdoms of men viewed as a  benefactor and protector of the people by seemingly benevolent acts, enticed men through fear, Nimrod made the way of Cain the new standard of civilization. He set up the first great universal false religion opposing God after Noah’s flood, founded upon the Babylonian idol Trinity of Bel, Anu and Enki, and was openly rebellious against God without remorse. The Beginning of his kingdom was Babel. Babylon was the first empire or Kingdom for Nimrod among men. Nimrod inspired the building of a city on the plain in the land of Shinar with a city and tower or Ziggarat, built with burnt bricks, whose reputation would make a name for themselves. This Tower of Babel is related in Gen. 11:4 as having a “top may reach unto heaven” in the KJV reflecting the words “may reach” in italics, indicating they were added by the translators in their effort to “clarify” he text. Since they were added, and do not appear in the Stephens text from which the KJV is taken, a  better translation would be a “top as a representation of the heavens.” But in an effort to establish the first great universal false religion after Noah’s Flood, the image of this tower did not reflect the original sense of the celestial gospel, and being based on idolatry, was openly rebellious against the true God. With the added advantage that the whole earth was of one language, [Gen. 11:1] this tower reflected an image completely removed from the true Creator which could influence the entire world’s population.

“Mighty”- is “gibbor” in Hebrew and “gigas” in Greek-LXX, meaning monstrous, or gigantic in evil. Rooted in ge, or “gaia” meaning earthborn as the “sons of gaia” the earth-goddess (Ashtoreth), the female form of the Babylonian trinity. It is interesting how the Gaia movement has been revitalized in modern times in the context of the “tree huggers” of the “Green movement,” bringing these ancient idols back from the idol foggy  mists-there is truly “nothing new under the Sun.”

“beginning of his kingdom was Babel”- Babylon was the beginning of this type of empire among men. As the prototype, Nimrod initiated the “canon” of the standard of teaching men to prosper and live outside of God. His canon included all categories of life; architecture, geometry, Astrology, music, martial arts etc. all devoted to idolatry. By building up standing armies and training men to fight, he conquered his neighbor-countries. This was the beginning of the corruption of the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs, after the flood, seen not only in the fame of the Babylonian astrologers, but also in the architecture and astrology of the Tower or Ziggurat of Babel.

The Ziggurat at Ur.

Sümerler, Mezopotamya’ya yaklaşık olarak M.Ö. 3500’lerden sonra gelmeye başlamıştır.

Gen. 11:1 refers to one language and a common speech. This was a great advantage to these people who wanted to make a name for themselves, instead of the true God, who had saved their ancestors from the great flood. They wanted to centralize their location in a city and apply their astronomical and architectural expertise to design this city with man-made bricks instead of the stones of the land. The emphasis of their great tower was not that it reached to the heavens as is commonly misunderstood, but this tower would be a representation of the heavens in geometric and architectural design. Here we can see one setting where this sacred geometry was applied. As Livio Stecchini stated in reference to the ziggurats of Babylon;

“they transfer curved data to a flat surface in order to make a projection of the Earth’s hemisphere, with a minimum of distortion.” Each of the primary steps of the pyramid thus represents a 90 degree quadrant, and the levels can represent the zone between two parallels of Latitude in a series of Mercator projections, several thousand years before the advent of the Flemish cartographer.”

Thus one function of this ziggurat was to map the northern hemisphere of the Earth from the Equator to the pole, into seven zones each diminishing in width corresponding to the decreasing degrees of Latitude. This figure was a mirror image of ancient celestial maps. [Thompkins] This shows that an advanced geography based on this cosmic architecture did not evolve, but actually devolved after perverted by heathen Astrology, from what was first given by revelation from God. This sacred architecture based on celestial structure, not only embodies man’s relationship with his Creator, as seen in the sacred architecture of Noah’s Ark, and later the Hebrew Tabernacle and Temple, but also included specific prophecies of the coming promised seed including  details of his redemptive work, which set man’s alliance with the Creator back on course. These elements of sacred geometry are further seen in the 3rd 4th and 5th steps of the ziggurats of Babylon, which make triangles with sides measuring according to the 3-4-5 Pythagorean triangle. We have noted in other studies on our Try-god website how the 3-4-5 triangle was utilized in elements of the Hebrew Tabernacle and Temple, along with the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid.
