Biblical Astronomy of the Seven Genesis Titles of Christ

There is a phrase in Bible Research that says; “Genesis is the book of Revelation concealed, and Revelation is the Book of Genesis revealed.” This month’s blog illustrates this truth in a number of interesting and enlightening ways. The impetus for this teaching came from one of Jon Nessle’s teachings where he mentioned “Seven Penteuech Titles of Christ” that he saw in a note from E.W. Bullinger”s Companion Bible, including the Seed, Star, Shiloh, Stone/Rock,
Shepherd, Scepter and Lawgiver.

In Genesis 3 we have the first prophecy of the Promised Seed [zera-2233] in the Bible.

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattleAnd more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

Contained in this initial prophecy of the Promised Seed, are also the first of seven Genesis titles pertaining to Christ. Surely the Promised Seed is the key to all human generations as Christ is Lord and Savior who provides the way of access back to God, which was lost in the serpent’s temptation of Eve. As the tempter was able to spread the seeds of destruction to all mankind by tempting Eve to break God’s Command, causing the loss of man’s spiritual link with the Heavenly Father, so the need for mankind’s Reedemer-Jesus Christ became a reality. But let us not forget the ruling principle of the seed at the basis of all the Kingdoms of Life, as seen in Genesis 1.

11 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seedand the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13 So the evening and the morning were the third day.

Much more than Maverick’s “need for speed” in the movie “Topgun,” mankind has a much bigger “need for seed” and the redemption only available in the perfect seed, Jesus Christ. The concept of this Genesis title is developed further in the line of Abraham in Genesis 15:2-7;

But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing[b]go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one[c] born in my house is my heir!”

And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.” Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants [seed] be.” And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness. 

Then He said to him, “am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to inherit it.”

In verse 5 above, God draws a direct comparison for Abraham between his seed and the stars of the celestial gospel.

The word for “seed” here in God’s promise to Abraham is (H2233zera), which has an interesting history of usage in both sacred and profane writings. In the Chaldean star religion, which had such a strong corrupting influence throughout the ancient world, he who was this “great seed” was also the Sun incarnate. Hislop tells us that:

“Symbolically the emblem for the sun was a circle, in reference to the sun’s ecliptical path.” 1 The true great seed prophetically is Jesus Christ, the promised redeemer of mankind referred to in Jeremiah 33.

Jer. 33:20-22

20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break My covenant of the day, and My covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season21Then may also My covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. 22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.

God inspires Jeremiah to make an inseparable connection between His “covenant of the dayand My covenant of the night,” and His “covenant with the seed of David my servant.” Why? One reason is the heavens tell of God’s Covenant with the seed of David with precision, corresponding with the regular observance of their Sabbatical and Jubilee years, in harmony with the Soli-lunar calendar of Israel. Jesus Christ the embodiment of the seed of David, came to fulfill the Scripture, and began his ministry in the Sabbatical Year of 27-28 AD, as part of the OT Hebrew Jubilee cycle. All 12 signs of the mazzaroth with each decan, tell a chapter of the struggle between the seed of the woman versus the serpent’s seed, as prophesied by God in Genesis 3:15. The Promised Seed Jesus Christ is the master key to unlocking the secrets of both the Celestial Gospel and the Scriptures, not to mention true Archaeo-Astronomy.

Hislop’s comments are relevant in that; “the hieroglyphical relation between zero, the circle, and zero, the seed, was easily established.”2 Hislop gives a nod to the correlation between The Promised Seed, in light of the mathematical implications of zero, and the geometric significance of the circle, and that these relations go far beyond their mere hieroglyphical associations. This also relates to how Christ as the Shepherd of Psalm 23 embodies the Jehovah-Names of God, as we will see below.

In Genesis 17:1-9 we find more on Abraham’s story;

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am
 [a]Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of [b]many nations. No longer shall your name be called [c]Abram, but your name shall be [d]Abraham; for I have made you a father of [e]many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants [seed] after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in[f] which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an ever-lasting possession; and I will be their God.” And God said to Abraham: “As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.

The Faith of Abraham is the undeniable foundation of Christian faith today. [Rom. 4]

Figuratively, the Sun as a symbol of the promised seedJesus Christ, weaves his way through the circular path of the ecliptic and the 12 houses of the Hebrew Mazzaroth, showing 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]

The union of the Alpha-Omega signs of Leo the lion, with the woman Virgo in the female-headed Great Sphinx also depict the life of Jesus, from birth, starting in the Star-set 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 find this set for us at the canonical start and close of both the Biblical and stellar gospels, forming a parallel testimony of the Scriptures with the stars. We have seen powerful specific examples of this in the celestial triple coronation ceremony of the three unions of Jupiter and Regulus in Leo, marking the birth of Christ. We even see the influence of this theme surviving in the famed mythology of the “Riddle of the Sphinx.” In the Greek mythology surrounding the female-headed Sphinx, she asks Oedipus the riddle; What is the animal which goes on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three legs at night?

The Sphinx and Oedipus

Image may contain: one or more people

 

His reply is Man, crawling as an infant, walking erect in manhood and in old age with a staff. 3
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 of the celestial gospel, the great stellar witness of the ages which embodies God’s first revelation to the Patriarchs, beginning with Adam. As the star names of the 12 Constellations of the zodiac along with each of their decans relate 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. All of this is established by the witness of Scripture, as we’ve seen in Gen. 49:8-10, for example among many others, setting the truth in stone.

In Genesis 49 we find important Messianic prophecies relating to Jesus Christ in context of Jacob’s blessings of his 12 sons, and the Genesis titles of ChristGen. 49:8-10 delineates God’s promises for the tribe of Judah;

Judah,[b] your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons will bow down to youYou are a lion’s cub, Judahyou return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies downlike a lioness—who dares to rouse him?
10 The scepter will not depart from Judahnor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,[c]
until [Shiloh] he to whom it belongs[d] shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

Verse 10 refers to the scepter and the “ruler’s staff” also translated as “Lawgiver” in the KJV, and Shiloh, all three of which are Genesis titles of Christ. As this cluster of Genesis Christ titles is an eye-opener, we should pay extra attention to the witness of Scripture in Genesis 49.

The “Lawgiver” [H2710] is a key Christ title, as one who decrees, ordains and inscribes laws. 4
As Proverbs 8 extolls the virtues of godly wisdom, we learn that it is by wisdom that Kings and Princes decree justice, [8:15]. A key aspect of the Lawgiver is found in Job, in reference to the Great Sphinx which embodies the decrees of God’s Word written in the stars for the Biblical Patriarchs.

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 of his coming redeemer, but also of his faith that this redeemer would stand at a future latter day upon the earth. This knowledge directly corresponds both, in a witness that was engraved in the rock forever, remaining unto our day, and the witnesses of the celestial and written gospels. The word “For,” beginning verse 25, depicts the purpose of his words along with 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 easily associated with this enduring memorial on the Giza plateau, analogous to the prophecy written in the stars in Leo and Virgo. In the only Patriarchal book of the Bible, Job’s words certainly stand out as a reference to the witness of the stars and in stone, the witness God provided to the Biblical Patriarchs in the Bible’s first canonical book written by Job.

The Great Sphinx

ancient egypt

In all likelihood, a later derivation of the word “sphinx” is found in the Egyptian “shesep ankh,” meaning a living image. 5 However, instead of the living idol images of gods or pharaohs, our proposal is that the Great Sphinx was originally intended as an oracle of the promised seed and the Messiah, with its living aspects included in the changing astronomy surrounding the signs of Virgo and Leo. Both Lockyer and Rolleston state, the Great Sphinx symbolizes the Summer
Solstice 4000 years before Christ, sealed by the union of Virgo and Leo. Rolleston notes that this junction of Virgo and Leo is marked by the star Denebola, which is a name meaning “the Lord or Judge who comes quickly,” 6 thus representing the living image, of the Lord Jesus Christ coming in judgment. As Denebola is the star marking the union of Virgo and Leo, the alpha and omega signs of the Biblical zodiac, this prophetic message of the coming Messiah has endured as the largest, and most famous sculpture on the planet.

To further cement the link between the Great Sphinx and the Scriptures, let’s take a look at Psalm 19:

Psalm 19:1-5

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork. 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 4 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 in preparation for the marriage supper of the Lamb, preserved in a great stone monument for the ages. As this magnificent monolith witnesses to the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs, the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid preserved the principles of Biblical Astronomy
timelessly. The witness of Scripture continues in the Book of Job, which contains more overt astronomical references, with ancient Biblical star names than any other book in the Bible.

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 view the Gospel in the Stars is central to the Book of Job, since this was where God gave the Patriarchs the stellar witness and celestial narrative of the promised redeemer of man. Job’s divine writings are the only Scripture recorded, that is addressed to the Patriarchal Age. 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 these 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. When Job spoke these words however, the Bible, or even the Pentateuch was not written yet by Moses the lawgiver. Thus, we see in verse 23, Job’s desire that his book would be part of the sacred written oracles that would correspond to this bedrock truth in the Great Sphinx, engraved in stone as a testimony to his coming redeemer.

The word “graven” *H2710 [chaqaq] in Job 19:24 means: to cut, carve, hew, square, quarry, mason or engrave. 6 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, or carved in a tablet. As we say God’s Word is set in stone. An important point to realize regarding this word [chaqaq] is that it is translated as “Lawgiver” in Deut. 33:21. This relates to another ancient Egyptian name of the SphinxBel-hit, which also means the “Lord who cometh.” Deuteronomy 33, records the Song of Moses, and the fifth 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, which models its zodiacal symbolism. Is there a more revealing context for this important element of the Great Sphinx to appear in?

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. [KJV]

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah“- “sceptre” is [H7626 shebet] 7 in the Hebrew, the same word used in Numbers 24:17; referring to the “star [H3556-kowkab] 8 out of Jacob and sceptre out of Israel.” This star out of Jacob is a clear reference to the planet
Jupiter-the King planet and the key role its triple union with Regulus played in the astronomy of the birth of Christ, in 3 BC.

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 JudahLeo, intertwines with the lawgiver coming from between his feet, symbolizing the king star Regulus [see Psalm 60:7]. 9 This gives a clear Biblical picture of the stellar elements of the Jupiter-Regulus triple union in Leo the lion of the tribe of Judah, seen in the three stages of the lion’s growth in Genesis 49:9!

Lawgiver“- *H2710 [chaqaq10 meaning; to cut or engrave, inscribe, establish, ordain, to decree, to be a leader, a ruler, a lawgiver; a scepter. It occurs 19 times in the Hebrew O.T. The primary 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 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 precedent for the idea of all language being rooted in the celestial alphabet, penned by the finger of God. [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, all incorporate the awesome beauty and mathematical Symmetry that unveil the accuracy of all His means of divine revelation, embodied in the spoken and written word, in the stars in stone and finally in the flesh. As the Red Thread and master key to the interpretation of God’s Word, Jesus is the lawgiver, after the form of Moses, the one decreeing righteous judgment as the embodiment of the Word made flesh.

Jer. 31:35-36
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 written with the finger of God in the rock of His holy mount,  and given to Moses the lawgiver, [Ex. 24:12, 31:18, 32:16]. This establishes the stone witness of the Sphinx, and verifies the relation between God’s celestial witness and His word written in Scripture [Ps. 19]. 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 “cliff, sharp rock compressed,
or boulder.” 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. This promised seed was consummated in the Lord Jesus ChristJeremiah‘s 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 and embodied in the Man Christ Jesus!

The prominent stellar aspects of the Great Sphinx, are witnessed in the first of the three unions of Jupiter and Regulus, on 9-14-3 BC. This exhibits not only the link between the ordinances of the sun and stars in Jer. 31:35, 33:25, specifically in Genesis 49:8-10, in united testimony with the stellar wonders spoken of in Revelation 12, but also the monolithic witness of the Great Sphinx to the Lawgiver of the Ages.

Thus, the Great Sphinx stands as Giza’s defiant sentinel, having weathered hundreds of centuries as a witness and messenger of both the canon of the celestial scroll of God’s Word engraved in the heavens and a prophecy of the birth of the Son of God. Always facing east, the Great Sphinx anticipates the truth of the Son-rise of the ages, whose light is the long-awaited dawning of a new day for all Mankind. This is a theme that arises again in relation to The Celestial Symbolism of the Tabernacle and Temple of Israel. When viewed in context with the witness of the Great Sphinx, this sign on 9-14-3 BC takes on added meaning, indicated in the Sphinx’ two basic elements. These two elements are detailed in the movement of the King planet Jupiter entering Leo, the lion-body of the Great Sphinx, while the Sun was in Virgo, the female head of the Sphinx. As the stars are allowed to speak in harmony with this witness in stone, the solitary guardian of the Giza plateau anticipates the dawning of a new day for mankind, predicting the birth of Spica, Virgo’s promised seed. Thus, the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid stand, as oracles, monumental prophets of both the Alpha and Omega, the first and second advents of Jesus Christ, revealing both his sufferings and glory. These stellar aspects of the Sphinx, are reinforced by the picture of the eastern horizon during the early morning hours of September 14th, at the time of the first Jupiter-Regulus union. This distinct star picture of the Head of the woman Virgo rising above the horizon, with the body of the lion above, beginning the first of three Jupiter-Regulus unions, is definitive evidence for our thesis. It is key to realize that the signs of the Lord’s birth occured in Virgo, the alpha sign of the Biblical zodiac, but the signs of his return will occur in the omega sign-Leo, both including signs of the Celestial Sphinx. This is a clear example of the importance of the Great Sphinx as a monumental marker of the advent of God’s only begotten Son.

The Scepter in the context of the Lion of Judah refers to the King’s Scepter as the rod and staff or symbol of the King’s authority and power, as seen in the Psalms.

Psalm 45:2-7

My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a [c]ready writer. You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.[d]Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majestyAnd in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humilityand righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies; The peoples fall under You.

 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdomYou love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.

Isaiah 11 provides a great sense of how the Messiah employs and embodies the King’s Scepter; These verses represent a summary of the OT manifestations paired according to this biblical structure of the spirit [H7307 ruach] of Jehovah- God in relationship to His creation. The repetition of “Spiritat the start of these 7 OT categories is a figure of speech- anaphora, while the ”ands” pairing these manifestations are also the figure “polysyndeton,” emphasizing each category of these spiritual manifestations.

Isa. 11:1-5

There shall come forth a [a]Rod from the [b]stem of JesseAnd a Branch shall [c]grow out of his rootsThe Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon HimThe Spirit of wisdom and understandingThe Spirit of counsel and mightThe Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

His delight is in the fear of the LordAnd He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes,
Nor decide by the hearing of His earsBut with righteousness He shall judge the poor,
And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt of His loinsAnd faithfulness the belt of His waist.

The 3rd Genesis title of Genesis 49:10 is Shiloh [H7886] also known as the peacemaker. We find these traits exemplified in the High Priest of the Tabernacle and Temple in the OT, especially where once a year on the Day of Atonement, this Priest went into the holiest of all and sacrificed for Israel to cover their sins. Christ fulfilled this with his once and final sacrifice for all mankind, on the cross, [Heb. 2:17]. In the NT with God in Christ in us [Col. 1:27] we dwell in God with God in us through Christ, in true unity, which was not known in Shiloh in the OT, an early resting place for the Ark of the Covenant, symbolic of God’s presence, but is replaced by God’s throne and His actual presence in the greatness of the Mystery in Christ seated at the Father’s right hand with his church. Another key occurrence of the peacemaker is found in Isaiah.

Isa. 9:6-7
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting FatherPrince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.

All Bible titles relating to Jesus Christ fall into these four categories of [Isa. 9:6]. 11

Jesus in the Road to Emmaus teaching, [Lk. 24:13] reveals himself in all the books of the OT unveiling one of the greatest teachings ever-The Master Key to unfolding God’s Word. The master-titles of Christ in Isa. 9:6, reveal multiple sets of 4 titles, as seen in the Hebrew word “zemach”-branch. This word is used 12 times in the OT, but these four usages delineate the 4D Ministry of the Messiah, Jehovah’s Branch, each set forth in the 4 gospels as seen in the bottom row of the chart above.

The numbers in parenthesis (4->) indicate the Spiritual Administrations in which these Titles are active. [Material above on Isa. 9:6 is from The One God Seminar, J. Nessle]

Some of these titles are found in the Seven periods of Christ’s earthly ministry marked by Audible Words from heaven.

1. Temptation-His Righteousness was proved. [40 days]

Another key occurrence of “Scepter” in Numbers is found in the context of an added title of Christ as the “Star; [H3556].”

 Num. 24:16-17

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 open17 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 [b]batter the brow of Moab, And destroy all the sons of [c]tumult.

The “Star out of Jacob” is another Genesis title of Christ that refers not only to the Celestial Gospel references of the Lawgiver in the Great Sphinx, but also the Biblical Astronomy of the birth of Christ, in the King planet Jupiter.

Stellar Elements of the Great Sphinx

The original teaching of the celestial witness of the signs of the zodiac is encapsulated in the signs Virgo and Leo and preserved in this ancient monument of the Giza plateau, the Great Sphinx. An interesting astronomical truth in support of this lies the fact that the crowned head of Virgo actually bridges about 10 degrees into the sign Leo on the ecliptic. We have already made reference to this in connection with the star Denebola. The star Sarcam in Leo, is a Hebrew word meaning “the joining“, revealing this as the point where the two ends of the Zodiacal circle have their joining. This is borne out in the sign Corvus, the bird of prey devouring Cetus the sea-monster, a decan of Virgo. The bright star in the eye of Corvus the Raven, called Al Chibar in Arabic means “joining together,” referring also to the union of as these two ends of the true zodiac! This also fits with the start of the Hebrew calendar in Tishri, the equivalent of our September-October, the beginning of their civil year when the Sun was clothing Virgo.

The heavens announced Jesus’ arrival with the setting of the star Spica, between the Moon and the setting Sun Clothing Virgo-as Virgo’s branch on September 11th, of 3 BC. This is firmly secured by the fifth axis evident in the Dendera zodiac, in the Egyptian temple of Esneh, subdividing the zodiac in the same way depicted on the ceiling of the Portico of that temple site; between Leo the Lion, and Virgo the woman. This idea is fully developed in The Denderah Zodiac poster, featured in the right margin of this blog. In addition to naming the start and close of the celestial canon, the Great Sphinx mirrors the binding of Scripture together in Genesis
to Revelation, as seen in the Red Thread references to Jesus as the Lion of the tribe of Judah in both Gen. 49:8-10 and Rev. 5:5, the first and last books of the Bible. Another indicator of the central importance of these stellar aspects of the Great Sphinx, is that our recognition of the Celestial Sphinx, pictured below, Virgo and Leo the lion provide the basis for the signs of the triple union of Jupiter-Regulus in Leo, in 3 BC related to Gen. 49:8-10

As we view the celestial context of this first union of Jupiter and Regulus, [Fig. B] we can see the head of Virgo rising above the eastern horizon just below the full body of Leo the Lion on the ecliptic. This is the view of what an observer standing near Palestine facing east would have seen on this date, providing a clear aspect of the astronomical symbolism of the Sphinx as a key marker and monumental prediction of Jesus’ birthday on September 11th. This serves as a monolithic marker to the prophecy provided in Rev. 12:1-5, in the sign of Virgo, further sets this truth.

Also in Genesis 49:22-26, we find the blessings of Jacob on the tribes of Joseph, with references to 2 more Genesis titles of Christ:

Genesis 49:22-26

Joseph is a fruitful vine, a fruitful vine near a springwhose branches climb over a wall.[k23 With bitterness archers attacked him; they shot at him with hostility. 24 But his bow remained steady, his strong arms stayed[l] limber, because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacobbecause of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel25 Because of your father’s God, who helps you, because of the Almighty,[m] who blesses you with blessings of the skies above, blessings of the deep springs below, blessings of the breast and womb. 26 Your father’s blessings are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountainsthan[n] the bounty of the age-old hills. Let all these rest on the head of Josephon the brow of the prince among[o] his brothers.

Here we see the titles of the Stone [H68] or Rock of Israel, and The Shepherd [H7462].
Key aspects of the Shepherd are found in the 23rd Psalm in the Seven Jehovah Names in Christ and Moses. As Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord is the Provider for Israel in Moses as Manna from Heaven, and in Christ as the bread of life. As Jehovah-Rapha He heals in Moses in the Passover, and in Christ as the light of the world. As Jehovah-Nissi, the protection of God was seen in the Rod of Moses, with Christ as the door of the Sheep.
As Jehovah-Shalom the Lord was Peace for Israel in the Cloud Pillar, while in Christ he is the true way that leads to life. As Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Lord is righteousness in the Mosaic Law, until Christ who fulfilled the Law. As Jehovah-Shammah, the Lord was Present in Moses’ Tabernacle, and in Christ, he is the true Vine. In Summary, as Jehovah-Raah, Moses was the Shepherd of Israel, while Christ is the Good Shepherd, who embodies all these traits.

The Stone [H680-Eben] or rock refers to a foundation stone, or chief cornerstone placed at the apex of the Great Pyramid completing its architecture, and unifying the corner-stones at its base. [Job 38:6, Ps. 118:22, Matt.21:42, Acts 4:11, Eph.2:20, 1 Pet.2:6-7]
E-ben also represents the Father building His house through His offspring or Son, and how God dwells among His people changes in each of the 7 spiritual Administrations, building towards the Mystery of the Church of the One body in Christ.

Isa. 28:16-17
16 Therefore thus says the Lord GodBehold, I lay in Zion [H68] a stone for a foundation,
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily. 17 Also I will make justice the measuring line, And righteousness the plummet;
The hail will sweep away the refuge of liesAnd the waters will overflow the hiding place.

It is in the Architecture of the Great Pyramid where we find a special revelation of Christ as the chief cornerstone that fulfills and unifies its structure. Even as these Genesis titles of Christ are also revealed in the Book of Revelation, Jon Nessle has taught, how the 7 Ascendant traits of Christ from [Rev. 5:5-12] correspond to these 7 Genesis titles. Verse 5 shows Jesus as the LionLeo of the tribe of Judah as seen in the head and body of the Sphinx, depicting these Genesis titles of Christ as they are revealed in the book of Revelation. 

Rev. 5:5-12

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven sealsThen I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.

So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open [a]and read the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and [b]to loose its seven seals.”

And I looked, [c]and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

Jesus Christ as the Lamb is described with 7 horns, 7 eyes, 7 spirits, of God. The Shiloh titles relate to our Prayers in Christ’s Name of the specific title as the “Lord of Daily Need;Daily Bread category of 7 aspects of the Lord’s PrayerHe alone is worthy [axios] to manifest [lambano] in practical application all 7 of these dimensions of spiritual power, the 7 Ascendant traits of Christ [13] listed here in Rev. 5.

1. Power; [G#1411-dunamis-unity] Natural, Inherent power both potential and active, signifying all modes of active power. [Matt. 28:18] Jesus has all power delegated to him by the Father in Heaven and Earth. [Eph. 1:21-23]. [seed]

2. Riches;[G4149-ploutos-est.] Wealth in abundance, the fullness of all things Christ has in store for the body of Christ. [Eph. 3:8, Phil. 4:19] The unsearchable riches of Christ! The Believers access these riches on 2 occasions; a. New Birth [Rom. 10:12] b. Rapture [Rev. 3:18, Rom. 15:13, I Cor. 1:4, enriched in utterance and knowledge,
[2 Cor. 8:7-8]-Faith, word, hope, diligence, love, grace.  
[stone]

3. Wisdom;[G#4678-Sophia-Spiritual Completion] expert, skill, godly wisdom, full intelligence and mental excellence in the highest and fullest degree. [I Cor. 1:30 this wisdom is a Sonship right, the wisdom from above in James, and the revelation manifestations given by God. “I can of my own self do nothing.” [peace]

4. Strength;[G#2479-ischus-World] health, prevailing strength and evidenced by overcoming deeds Lk. 3:16- JC mightier than John the Baptist. Phil. 4:13-We are infused with God’s power. [I Cor. 15:24] all rule, power and authority. [scepter]

5. Honor;[G#5092-precious valuables, [time-Grace] of great value, preeminent honor, a name above all names. [Js. 5:23]-we honor the Father via the Son. [Phil. 2:9-11] Atheism is a temporary condition because every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that JC is Lord. When they bow, they can’t stand against us. [Shepherd]

6. Glory;[G#1391-doxa-Man] manifested power, dignity, praise, worship [Man] [John 13:31-2, 17:1-5] Figure antanaclasis “word clashing;” differing word definitions used together. With=para-beside in the dative case=”glorify me beside Yourself.” What orthodox Trinitarians say was Preexistent Jesus with God, was actually God’s foreknowledge of Jesus at His Right Hand when Lucifer occupied this space in the 1st Heaven & Earth [Shiloh]

7. Blessing;[G#2129-eulogiaSpiritual perfection] Good Word or action from God. Jesus did many Praiseworthy acts but we are worshipping him as God for none of them. Praise=laud, as his victorious entry into Jerusalem on “Palm Sunday,” they proclaimedHosanna in the highest.” All Evangelism is praising Jesus for his accomplishments and godly work. Jesus as the Evangelist is one of his sevenfold ministries he fulfilled during the Acceptable Year of the Lord, [Lk. 4:16-19, Gen. 49:25-26 ]. [Star]

Through the reality of the redemptive works of Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd, man’s redemption is complete. Access to the way of the tree of life has been fully restored with many more benefits added in Christ, the true way that leads to life. Man again has full access to his loving Heavenly Father fulfilling God’s purposes. As we continue to look forward to the fullness of our redemption in the Hope of Christ’s return, we rejoice in our immediate and ultimate victory in Eternal Glory!

God Bless!

Comments Off on Biblical Astronomy of the Seven Genesis Titles of Christ

Biblical, Scientific and Geometric links between Eclipses and Earthquakes

This week during the 4th of July Holiday as our family prepared for our in-home BBQ feast, in Las Vegas, I felt the tremors of the second earthquake experience of my life. The first was in Virginia Beach when a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in 2011 cracked the obelisk of the Washinton Monument in DC. This week we felt a 6.4 magnitude “foreshock” on the 4th, followed by a 7.1 magnitude on July 6th. This 2nd quake was 7 times stronger than the first and the 7.1-quake occurred 3.5 days after the total eclipse in Gemini, pictured below.

Figure 1. July 2nd, 2019 Total Solar Eclipse in Gemini

The epicenter of this earthquake was Ridgecrest, CA, 144 miles from Las Vegas as the crow flies. Just because these were the 2nd and 3rd earthquakes of my life, did not mean it was without its Firsts. To have a foreshock, multiple quakes are required. Obviously, this was also my first multi-quake in the space of two days, and there remained a high probability for other quakes to follow. This was the strongest quake to hit the Southern California area since 1999. On the morning of July 12th, 4 days ahead of the eclipse coming July 16th-17, there were further quakes and aftershocks. Around 3am there was a 4.6 magnitude earthquake felt in Seattle, Wa, followed 3 hours later by a 4.9 magnitude aftershock, again at Ridgecrest, CA. The satellite imagery below shows the result of the first two quakes last week.

Figure 2. Cracks in the Earth’s surface following last week’s California quake’s.

Earthquakes are caused by sudden slippage on a Fault. As the slow motion of tectonic plates progresses, friction causes these plates to get stuck at their edges. Once the stress builds on the edge, it overcomes the friction, causing an earthquake to release energy in waves that move through the earth’s crust, which we feel in the form of tremors.

Foreshocks are earthquakes that precede larger earthquakes in the same location. An earthquake is not classified as a foreshock until followed by bigger earthquakes in the same area. Aftershocks are smaller earthquakes that take place in the same general area during a period consisting of days to years following a larger event. These aftershocks occur in a 1-2 fault lengths range, during the period before background seismic activity level has resumedAftershocks are minor readjustments with the part of the fault that slipped at the time of the mainshock. The frequency of these aftershocks generally decrease with time.

If you think there has been an uptick in earthquakes recently, you may be on to something. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979.

“We have recently experienced a period with one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded,” said lead study author Tom Parsons, a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Menlo Park, California. 2 Also Thorne Lay, a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, thinks there’s something interesting happening with the world’s great earthquakes.

Between 1900 and 2004, the average yearly rate of quakes of magnitude 8 and larger was 0.65, Lay told Live Science. In the past 10 years, [2004-2014] that rate jumped to 1.8 — an increase of almost a factor of 3, he said. But only the biggest quakes are becoming more frequent. There isn’t a similar rise in smaller earthquakes. 3

An interesting added element to the 1st quarter of 2014 was the opening of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15, which began with a Blood Moon lunar eclipse on April 14th, 2014. This also coincides with eclipse activity this month with the first Total Solar Eclipse on July 2nd, 2019 including the seismic activity we summarized above.

On the night of July 16-17, 2019, much of the world can watch a partial eclipse of the full Moon. This will be the last time that the Moon enters the Earth’s dark umbral shadow until the Total Lunar eclipse on May 26th, 2021.

North America will miss this eclipse entirely. The eclipse is visible from South America in early evening July 16. From Europe and Africa, it happens later in the evening July 16. In Asia and Australia, watch for the eclipse to occur during the dark morning hours July 17.

In ancient times eclipses were rare enough to frighten, especially those influenced by astrology, idol myth and superstition, but as scientific knowledge of astronomy spread, eclipses were regular enough for advanced cultures, such as the Greeks and Mayans, to predict. Today, eclipses are cruise destinations for astronomy buffs, and get coverage in current events aspect of the News, but with the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse Tetrads, interest has surged due to Biblical prophetic aspects of these heavenly signs. Also, since this Blood Moon Tetrad Brackets the Total Solar Eclipse @ the North Pole on March 20th, 2015, it also seems to bear relation to the Great American Total Solar of 2017, that forms the baseline of the Giant “X” in the central US earthquake zone known as the Madrid Fault, where a second Solar Eclipse path will cross in 2024, perhaps an ominous warning of God’s impending Judgment.

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

Image result for aug 21 solar eclipse regulus lunar occultation images

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

Matt. 27:50-51 

50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.

This is one of a few instances where earthquakes could be considered miraculous, if not for their timing alone. Of course, the rending of the veil represented how Christ’s sacrifice opened the way to access into the holiest of all-God’s presence in the Throne-room for those made righteous in Christian New birth. Another earthquake involved the Resurrection of Christ in Matthew 28.

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 his grave, because he had conquered death for all mankind once and for allDuring his ministry in Matthew 24, Christ prophesied that earthquakes would be a marker of the end times.

Matt. 24:3-8

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for [a]all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, [b]pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

This Matt. 24 record has distinct prophetic overtones, that link earthquakes not only to the end times, but also with God’s Judgement.

Image result for 1260 days blood moon tetrad

The graphic above from Daniel Matson shows a 1260 day period between the last Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad, and the 70 year anniversary of the modern State of Israel’s Independence, wherein a Tetrad of earthquakes occurred at notable intervals. 4 This graphic depicts a seemingly direct link between the Blood Moon Tetrad and the Tetrad of earthquakes that followed in the 1260 day period from 2015 to 2019. Another resurrection record is found in the book of Revelation 11.

Rev. 11:3-14

 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty [1260] days, clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the [b]God of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

The Two Witnesses Killed

When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also [c]our Lord was crucifiedThen those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations [d]will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

The Witnesses Resurrected

11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And they heard
a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.

It is notable that the 1260 day ministry period wherein these 2 witnesses prophesy is closed out with an earthquake that kills 7000. Assuming this is the 2nd 1260 day period of the Great Tribulation equalling 2520 days, then the added month totaling 1290 days and the additional 45 days, equaling 1335 days could begin here. This is even more interesting when we consider if 2520 lunar and 2520 solar years begin together, the former will run out 75 years before the latter, an astronomical fact unknown to astronomical science in Daniel’s day, but was known in Scripture; (Dan. 12:11-13). We should also note that there are 75 years difference between 1260 (the 2nd half of 2520) and 1335 days. (Because the so-called Prophetic 360-day years are merely the avg. of the Luni-solar year combined, are 35 years less than 2520 solar years. Since 2520 is a key temporal number having factors of three numbers used universally by the ancients to measure time: 7, the number of days in the week. 30, the number of days in the month, and 12, the number of months in the year, we might expect that 2520 is also a number that harmonizes lunar months and days. 2520 lunar years equals 893,004.72 days which is  nearly a perfect cycle harmonizing the 29.5305 month with the day because when dividing 893,004 by 12 and then 7, the result is 10,631 days for 30 lunar years, giving the length of the lunar year a value of 354 11/30, or 354.3666667 (The lunar year of 12 months is actually 354.3670582 days). Each year of 354 days can thus be divided into months of 29 and 30 days alternately; and in the cycle of 30 lunar years, 11 intercalary days are required. The number 2520 is also divisible by every number from 1 to 10, without remainder.

Also in Revelation 6 there seems to be a more direct correlation found between earthquakes and Solar-Lunar eclipses.

Rev. 6:12

And I behold when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake; and the Sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the Moon became as blood

Although it is difficult to find a scientist who admits it, it can be demonstrated that there is a minor increase in major earthquakes around the time of the full Moon, based on physical statistics. This is logical as the Moon’s gravitational pull is strong enough to cause the earth’s tides, and a full moon is when the Sun and Moon are pulling on our planet from opposite directions. In some of our planetary tides, the Earth’s crust can bulge up to 55 centimeters from the solar and lunar forces of gravity that are greatest when the three bodies are aligned, during an eclipse. A lunar eclipse is basically a super-full Moon, where its alignment with the Earth blocks the Sun’s light, preventing it from reaching the Moon.

Sun, Moon and Earth aligned during Solar Eclipse.

Image result for Pi, Phi earthquakes and eclipses

Likewise, a Solar eclipse is an alignment, but where the Moon and Sun are pulling on the earth from the same direction. Thus if the push-pull of this type of gravitational activity can cause earthquakes, they are more likely to occur during an eclipse.

These Scripture references not only point out links between earthquakes and eclipse activity. There are several references from ancient history which document similar instances, as seen below.

In the fourth year of the 202nd Olympiad, there was an eclipse of the Sun which was greater than any known before and in the sixth hour of the day it became night; so that stars appeared in the heaven; and a great earthquake that broke out in Bithynia destroyed the greatest part of Nicaea. — Phlegon

“… there was an eclipse of the Sun at the time of a new Moon, and in the early part of the same month an earthquake.” — Thucydides

earthquakes and eclipses of the Sun which came to pass more frequently than had been remembered in former times.” — Thucydides 5

The last quote could be an indicator of an additional factor. What if the earthquake/eclipse connection is cyclical? This is where geometric patterns like the Pi and Phi ratios could provide an explanation of the relationship between eclipses and earthquakes. There is also an added less stable force to be considered, and that force is magnetic. The Sun, Moon and Earth each have magnetic fields, and we know that the Solar and Earthly magnetic fields can vary significantly.

Modern scientists have not been studying these magnetic fields long enough to notice any long-duration patterns. Ancient scientists were unlikely to have been able to measure magnetic fields – but an ancient culture could have noticed a cycle of megaquakes, which are a result of the magnetic interactions. 6

Figure 3. The Blood Moon Pi-Daniel Matson 7

Image result for Pi, Phi earthquakes and eclipses

Even as ancient writers noticed a link between earthquakes and eclipses, modern scholars have noted not only the link between luni-solar eclipses and earthquakes,
but also have found geometric patterns like the Pi and Phi Ratios linking these geophysical and celestial events. As seen above in one of many related graphics from Daniel Matson, he has linked the first Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad, to a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in Russia, to the first free worship of the Jews on the Temple Mount in 50 years, via the Pi ratio. He depicts numerous other similar relationships on his website, [watchfortheday.org]. Once we see the relationship of universal geometric constants like
pi and phi linked to these phenomena, it provides another layer beyond the exclusively physical or materialistic view to consider.

Could this all be a lead-up to the final Biblical earthquake referenced in Revelation 16?

Rev. 16:18-20
17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18

 And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earth-quake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

There is available data linking eclipse/earthquake activity, on Wikipedia,  as seen below; 8

Research has been done on every earthquake measuring 6.5+ in magnitude since 1973 (as far back as the USGS records reliably go) against every lunar and solar eclipse. As noted, there does seem to be a connection with the worst quakes of recent times.

What about solar eclipses? Well most of them do not have an obvious earthquake connection. But for those that do, the quakes can be horrific. The pair of earthquakes with the most fatalities in the last few years were Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010 and Kashmir on October 8, 2005. Both of these devastating quakes occurred within 5 days of a solar eclipse.

Lunar eclipses do have an effect. These numbers are for total and partial lunar eclipses, compared to average earthquake rates, from Jan 1973 to the present:

As an example, since Jan 1973 there have been 88 lunar eclipses, and within one day of those eclipses there have been 45 earthquakes of a magnitude of 6.5+. So there’s roughly a 50/50 chance of such a 6.5+ quake occurring in that time frame, whereas it’s only about a third outside of non-eclipse periods.

Below are some recent examples – every full lunar eclipse since 2000, which gets our attention not only due to loss of human life, but to the close proximity of eclipse activity with seismic disturbance:

26 January 2001 – A magnitude 7.6 earthquake in the Indian Province of Gujarat. The death toll was 19,727, with 166,000 injured, 15 days after the lunar eclipse.
1 May 2003 – 176 people have died and 521 people were injured from a 6.4 earthquake in Turkey’s Bingöl province, 15 days before the lunar eclipse.
17 November 2003 – 7.8 magnitude earthquake at Rat Island, Alaska, 8 days after the lunar eclipse.
23 October 2004 – 6.7 magnitude earthquake in northern Japan, killing 30+ people and injuring more than 2000, 5 days before the lunar eclipse.
6 March 2007 – Two earthquakes struck Sumatra measuring 6.4 and 6.3. Over 60 deaths and 460 injuries. 3 days after the lunar eclipse.
15 August 2007 – 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Peru killed over 600 people, with thousands injured. 13 days before the lunar eclipse.
21 February 2008 – 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Indonesia killed 3 people and injured 25. 19 hours before the lunar eclipse.
21 December 2010 – 7.4 magnitude earthquake in Japan, on eclipse day. The following day there was a 6.5 quake in Iran, killing 11 people.

Looking further back in time, the earthquake in Iran on September 16, 1978, the most devastating one of that year, that killed more that 25,000 people, occurred just 3.5 hours before a total lunar eclipse was visible there. [https://survive2012.com/eclipses-and-earthquakes/] 10

The March 19, 2011 SuperMoon—also a full Moon at lunar perigee sparked fears of other natural disasters, and took place 8 days after the 9.0 magnitude undersea megathrust quake—known as the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami—which pulverized Japan and spawned devastating tsunamis that claimed more than 15,000 lives while adding to the causes of nuclear meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
[https://phiintheskyradio.wordpress.com/2015/08/21/epidemic-of-sea-mammal-deaths-explodes-as-fukushima-radiation-contaminates-one-third-of-the-earth-naturalnews-com/]

More recently this year on Monday, January 21, 2019 six quakes struck the United States – one measuring a magnitude of 4.7. Four earthquakes have hit Alaska, one hit Oklahoma and another California. The previous night a Super Blood Moon dimly lit the night sky, turning the Moon red.

From a prophetic view “2,520 days from the Fukushima earthquake on March 11, 2011 was Feb. 2, 2018 which is 2,520 Days before Hanukkah Day 1 or Daniel’s Day 1335. On that day the Market closed at 25520, that was 25520 days back from that day to the Vernal Equinox 1948,” significant in forming of Israel as a modern nation-state. The NYSE Market also fell 666 points. [Dan Matson]. 11 The number 2,520 is not only significant
in Biblical Prophecy, and recent earthquakes, but also how the luni-solar cycles form the basis of the 1260 year period, which when doubled gives us 2,520. Every 1260 years
the Sun and Moon return, within less than 1/2 a degree, to the same point in the sky precisely on the ecliptic, within an hour of each other. If we subtract 1260 from 2300 we get 1040 which is a long-awaited solar-lunar cycle that harmonizes all 3 measurements: the Year, Month and Day“ in a near-imperceptible error” of (.11 of a day). 12

In his book The Witness of the Stars, E.W Bullinger, in his discussion of the Saros:
he shows the periods of Jerusalem under the Gentiles in two 1260 years cycles, totaling 2520 years. 13  He depicts the domains of Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece as 594 years, and the Roman Empire’s dominion of Jerusalem at 666 years; totaling 1260 years. Both of these periods are calculated in eclipse cycles. The 2nd 1260 year period consists of the Mohammedan conquest of Jerusalem that began in 636-37 AD. 14

“Saros cycles breakdown into two cycles, one of 666 years and the other of 594 years totaling 1260 years. We know that 1260 years is a soli-lunar cycle, so exact that its epact or remainder is only 6 hours. Bullinger stresses not only these aspects of the 1260 year period but also its double-2520 years. 15 E.W. Bullinger believed that these 1260 year periods would foreshadow 1260 day periods in the end-times,
when the final Abomination of Desolation was to be fulfilled, before and during
the 
Great Tribulation. [2 Thess. 2:1-3].

The breakdown of the 1260 year period pairs the number of the beast as a multiple of the 18 year eclipse [Saros] cycle; since 1260 years is 18, 70-year eclipse cycles [6 + 6 + 6 such cycles] as seen below.

18 x 37 = 666 years, added to
18 x 33 = 594 years
————————-
18 x 70 = 1260 years
totaling =  70 Saros cycles.  16

As we include the conversion rate of Solar and Lunar cycles with not only the calendar year but also earthquakes in the earth’s crust and the financial markets, according to these cycles marking Biblical Prophecyfrom the books of Daniel and Revelation, we gain a panoramic view of Biblical history and an
incisive view of end-times prophecy, related to the activities of the Anti-Christ
and his final desolation of the Temple at Jerusalem.

As we realize that Bible Prophecy numbers like 1260, 2520 and 666 to mention a few, are actual solar and lunar eclipse cycles far more accurate than the Metonic or Saros cycles, written into ancient Bible Prophecies of the Old Testament, we can see how far in advance Biblical Astronomical knowledge is ahead of science in human history.

According to Robert Bast; “I listed every earthquake measuring greater than 6.5 in magnitude since 1973 – which is as far back as the USGS records reliably go – and checked them against every lunar and solar eclipse for the same period.” 17.

The study found only a slight increase in earthquakes around solar eclipses. But for lunar eclipses – when the Sun and Moon pull on our planet from opposite directions – the odds of a major earthquake are double. Earthquakes of 7.5 magnitude or greater occur on average every 73.8 days. Within one day of a lunar eclipse, the average drops down to just one in every 33 of those days. Lesser earthquakes also occur substantially more frequently.

This research does not mean that there will definitely be an earthquake every time there is a lunar eclipse. But it does mean that a large magnitude earthquake is about 50% more likely to occur, and a Mag. 7.5+ perhaps more than twice as likely to occur within one day. Therefore the gravitational tug-of-war, with the Sun pulling us from one direction, and the Moon from the opposite direction, is a definite factor.

As we can see in the current period between the July 2nd eclipse and the July 16th-17th the earthquake activity has captivated the attention of many. This requires further observation but for those with Scriptural and spiritual perception there is more going on than just a few stray eclipses and quakes. As usual, your comments and input are welcome!

God Bless!

This month’s post is the result of a realization and desire to improve accessibility to the blog studies on this site, as the Archive is insufficient on its own. With separate hyperlinked access
to each blog, it is much easier to navigate the individual studies here, and cross-reference related topics for further study. With our 5th Anniversary quickly approaching on the 4th of July, it
is high time for these improvements, which will be further augmented with a Table of Topical Studies where related blogs can be grouped as a study aid. I’m so thankful for all the readers that are blessed by these studies, especially the contributors who have and will share God’s Wisdom inherent in His Word, related to these topics of Science and Biblical Astronomy.

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.

Image result for Giza Pyramids and the fibonacci spiral images

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

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.

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].
