Timeline of Celestial Signs with Comet 323P/Soho

Recently a believer, Shelly McNair sent me a link to a you-tube video on a current Comet, 323P/Soho; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNyEJJ3__MM]

The video is a teaching from a Christian group led by Pastors Patrick and Christina called Hourly Watch, where they are apparently keeping watch of the heavens for signs of the Return of Christ. Pastor Patrick gave a presentation using Stellarium astronomical software that focused on Comet 323P/Soho, showing on Stellarium that prior to Summer Solstice of 2020, this Comet had not moved going back to 4999 BC in history. His exhibit on Stellarium displays the Comet 323/P initiated its first movement on record, in the ecliptic signs as Comet 323P, travels a singular lap of the skies. There are many notable heavenly signs documented along the way, detailed in Pastor Patrick’s video, and some that are not, that we explain below. I trust this blog will add a greater understanding regarding these heavenly signs, related to this Comet. I’m thankful to Shelly McNair for bringing this teaching to my attention, and to Pastor Patrick for his video teaching, which has some very interesting elements. Of course, we are all yearning for the Lord’s Return as the Great Hope of our redemption draws near, and we know we are living in the end times, as we prepare ourselves and our loved ones for this prophetic event, but we are not in the habit of date setting this event or predicted events in Scripture. Naturally, we want to be able to discern the details of Scripture as they relate to the end-times we are living in, as the Light of God’s Word always enlightens our path. Its regrettable the path is littered with many ministries that attached their livelihood to endtime prophecies with specific dates, predicting the Lord’s Return, the Great Tribulation, or other events that failed to occur according to erroneous predictions. With this in mind, let’s delve into some details in this teaching opening with basics on Comets in Astronomical history. Comets were many times linked to the fates of monarchs and leaders. Ptolemy about 200 AD, said “Comets show through the parts of the zodiac wherein their heads appear, and by the directions where their tails point, the regions upon which the misfortunes impend.”1

Comets are generally signs and portents of destruction and evil, and in Stellarium the Comet 323P appears to stay in a stationary position to the extent of the astronomical records in this software, with its sudden stir from inactivity to open the summer season last year. It appears to represent an embodiment of evil that has been reserved for the last days, but this presents our first problem, because the designation of “P” in Comet 323P, means this is a Periodic Comet, meaning this type of comet has been observed in orbits at least twice. This contradicts what Stellarium is showing in the You-tube video, perhaps due to the software limits, which does not extend past 4999 BC. In the list of Periodic Comets, on Wikipedia, 323P has an orbit of 4.22 years, so we should be witnessing it slightly more than every 4 years. It is classified as JFC or “Jupiter Family Comet,” and Comet 323P is also rated “NEC” regarding it as a “Near-Earth Comet,” where, in this case 323P shows up twice in the Top 10 of the closest approaching Comets to Earth. To make this list, the Comet orbits are known well enough so that observers can be confident of Comet approach distances. 3 Thus, contrary to what Stellarium Astronomy software shows the Comet 323P has a history of scientifically recorded motion previous to June of 2020! This changes a key aspect of the tenor of Pastor Patrick’s teaching, that we need to be aware of.

This Comet is located on the ecliptic between Cancer and Leo, in a position that seems to mirror the King Star-Regulus in Leo, along with the Beehive Nebula in Cancer. This is where we find Comet 323P June, 20th 2020, in Stellarium when its initial motion is recorded, towards Leo. Notably, this first slow movement of Comet 323P is marked by an Annular Solar eclipse on June 20th, at the Summer solsticeframed by two Blood Moon Lunar eclipses between 6/5/20, and July 4th, 2020! This notable sign between 2 Blood Moon Eclipses in the 6/20/20 Annular eclipse pictured in Fig. 2, is one that we will trace in the timeline below, along with celestial signs and key Comet activity.

Figure 2. Ring of Fire Annular Solar eclipse as seen over Japan, June 20th. 4
AnnularEclipse

Last year’s cycle of eclipses began with a Blood Moon Lunar eclipse on June 5th, followed by a historic Annular Solar Eclipse June 20-21, with the 3rd Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse on July 4-5 of the penumbral variety, effectively framing the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse on the June solstice. This amazing Annular Solar Eclipse was preceded by a lunar occultation of Venus on June 19th, which means the Moon as a prelude to covering the Sun, the light of the World, occulted Venus the bright and Morning star. This is engaging in light of previous Comet activity with lunar occultations and Blood Moons of 2014-2016.  After the Annular Solar eclipse of this 2020 series, the Full Moon was visited by Jupiter and Saturn, the largest planets in our Solar System. By Wed. 6-24-20 Jupiter-Saturn are only 6 degrees apart in Sagittarius, as Saturn is seen below, crossing into Capricornus. This supports the notion of Comet 323P symbolizing an end-time evil, as Saturn is seen in myth as Satan’s planet we find many references linked to the number 6, ordinarily the number of man, and the Beast or antichrist666. As Saturn in Capricorn, embodies a false-atoning sacrifice for the redeemed, we see a basic reference to the anti-christ, but it does not stop there, as seen in the relation of the number 6 to Saturn;

a. Saturn is the 6th planet in the Solar System.
b. Saturn forms the root of “Saturday,” the 6th day of the Week.
c. Saturn’s North Pole is the shape of a 6-sided hexagon.
d. Saturn has 6 clearly defined rings, the 7th being most faint. 5

Once Every 20 Years: Lunar Eclipse preceded by rare Jupiter-Saturn anomaly

This JupiterSaturn union with the Moon, appeared above the southeastern horizon, 3 days after the Annular Solar Eclipse, with Jupiter about 6 degrees, and dimmer Saturn about 3 degrees above the horizon. The start of the Independence day Lunar Eclipse, on July 4th & 5th, visible in the middle east that framed the Annular Solar Eclipse, as the 2nd of two Blood Moons was punctuated by this Jupiter-Saturn-Lunar union marking a key 3-day gap after Comet 323p’s initial movement.

It is also important to realize that heavenly signs like Comets have played a prominent role in the past, in relation to the recent history of Israel. The 1948 “Eclipse Comet” was a notable sight approaching the Sun during a Total Solar Eclipse, the 1st week of November. This Solar Eclipse occurred after the week of Sukkot, and the approaching Eclipse Comet on a southwest path through Hydra-the serpent destroyed, in Nov.-Dec. 1948, was a 2nd magnitude object with a tail as long as 30 degrees, appearing as if the Sun was holding a sword, raised against Israel’s Serpent enemy. A prelude to the 1949 Blood Moon Tetrad, marking the forming of Israel as a nation-state for the first time in nearly 2000 years, the Eclipse Comet brought attention to these Luni-Solar Eclipse Tetrads that also occurred in 1967-68, marking Israel’s retaking of Jerusalem, fulfilling numerous latter-day Bible prophecies, along with the next Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. Thus eclipses seem to have a noteworthy link to Blood Moon Tetrads in Israel’s history.

Timeline of Celestial Signs with Comet 323P/Soho, 2020-2021.

What follows is an expanded timeline of celestial events in Pastor Patrick’s You-tube teaching on the motion of Comet 323P, starting with the 2 Blood Moon’s framing its movement on the Summer Solstice of 2020.

6/5/20 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse

6/20-21/20 Annular Solar Eclipse in Cancer gave us the Max eclipse at the moment of the New Moon, as Comet 323P starts its slow minor motion near Cancer, before its true motion began a bit later towards Leo. The motion of Comet 323P coinciding with the typically invisible New Moon, unveiled activity normally under cloak of darkness, was revealed by the Sun. Other key Comets were also moving in this area of the skies. The graphic above shows a temporal Pi relation between this Annular Solar Eclipse on the Summer Solstice marking the first movement of Comet 323P, with a Blood Moon that was one of the Lunar triples framing the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, and Tu B’ Shevat on the Hebrew Calendar. This Blood Moon on 7/27/2018 claims the longest totality of any Total Lunar Eclipse in the 21st Century. This key linkage is established in that the Annular Solar Eclipse not only ties to a series of Blood Moons framing the 2014-15 Tetrad, but this Annular Eclipse itself is also framed between 2 Blood Moons on 6/5/20 and 7/4-5/20.

Enjoy this bright Comet Neowise while you can, as it will not be seen again on this trajectory for nearly 7,000 years.

7/12-13/20-In Figure 6 Comet Neowise/ C2020 F3 as seen in Nevada from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, sighted just below the Big Dipper/Ursa Major. On the same day Comet Neowise was visible over my state of residence-NV, another Comet 2P Encke was passing Comet 323P joining in close proximity to this Comet as it entered Leo. Comet Encke is a Short Periodic Comet of 3.3 years, identified as such by Johann Franz Encke in 1819. During this week in mid-July 2020, the Comet Panstarrs-C/2017 T2, seen moving in the same region of the heavens between Bootes and the Decan of Virgo, is adjacent to this fair lady of the skies-Coma.

The graphic above shows another Pi relationship between Comet Neowise C2020 F3, on 7-22-2020 making its closest approach to Earth, and Comet Hale-Bopp on 3-22-1997. It is notable that this approach of Comet Neowise coincided with a 7.6 mag earthquake in Alaska also on 7-22-2020. This temporal Pi relation is complete on Christmas Day, the 1st Day of Hannukah on the Hebrew Calendar in 2027, looking forward in a prophetic context. This graphic is credited to the good folks [@watchfortheday.org] who have pointed out similar Pi/Phi relations with other recent events. As July closed on the 29th-30 the Comet Neowise C2020 F3, was visible approaching Bootes the Coming One, and Arcturus, meaning he cometh, with Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2, near the decan Coma, depicting the young child Jesus in the lap of his Mother-Mary. 11

7/27/20-As 2P Comet Encke continues its motion south of Leo near Hydra, it initially crosses into the first Decan of Hydra, called Crater. This decan embodies the cup of the wine of the fierceness of God’s Wrath on the evil-doers, [Rev. 14:10, 16:19]. This cup of wrath consists of 13 stars, the number for rebellion, and is attached to the body of the Hydra-the Serpent destroyed, being counted to belong to both constellations. 12

Hydra the serpent destroyed pictured with the Decans Crater and Corvus.

8/2/20-As 2P Comet Encke continues moving above Hydra, it encounters the decan Corvus the Raven, symbolizing the final Judgment scene. This is a decan of 9 stars-the number of judgment. The brightest star in the Raven’s eye is Al Chibar, which in Arabic means joining together. 13 Comet Encke’s path near Hydra is similar to the path of the Eclipse Comet in Nov. 1948 enacting judgment on the Serpent destroyed.
Since the lower half of Hydra runs parallel to the union of signs Virgo and Leo, it embodies the area where these Alpha & Omega signs of the Mazzaroth come together, unifying the Celestial Sphinx, seen in the head of the woman and the body of a lion.

8/11/20-As Comet 323P nears Leo, the Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2, has moved near Arcturus in Bootes, [Job 9:9] while Comet 2P Encke has moved to the end of Hydra’s tail. Aratus‘ name for Arcturus was Arctophylax, the guardian of Arctos, the flock of the greater fold, known today as Ursa Major linked to the Big Dipper. 14

8/20-21/20-As Comet 323P enters Leo-the lion of Juda, at Regulus on the ecliptic, the Sun is also present in Leo with Mercury-Gabriel, the Messenger planet as it joins Regulus in union on 8-28-20, heralding the King Star the following week.

9/11/20 Sun Clothing Virgo with the Moon at her feet. It is notable that the first two signs encountered by Comet 323P are those of the Celestial Sphinx-Leo & Virgo. Here as Comet 323P slowly moves thru Leo, the Sun and Mercury move into Virgo setting up the annual Rev. 12 sign. In the next year, Comet 323 orbits the ecliptic with numerous celestial signs and planetary conjunctions ultimately leading back to the precipice of this 9/11/21, Rev. 12 sign. Mercury-Gabriel also is unified with Spica and hailing its presence on 9-20-20. Gabriel the Messenger arch-angel declares Spica as the Zemach Branch & Promised Seed of the Woman, the star that marked the moments of Christ’s birth on this date in 3BC. Also on 9/20/20, the Comet Panstarrs has moved into the region of Virgo’s feet.

10/14/20-Comet 323P is seen with Venus the bright and morning star moving in Leo near its hind legs during this week to 10-20-20, with the Moon in the Lion’s tail and the head of the Woman Virgo, marking the union of the Celestial Sphinx. At this point on 10/18/20, Venus is unified with Comet 323P at the junction of the Celestial Sphinx, as they enter Virgo, while the Sun is in union with the star Spica. This shows the light of the world unified with Christ in his four-fold ministry as King, Son of Man, Son of God, and Servant. Here Comet Neowise C/2020 F3, has moved to encircle Virgo’s mid-section around Spica, marking the area in Virgo’s womb the king planet Jupiter spent 9 months in 2017Comet Neowise moves between the Sun and Venus on the way back to Bootes. After Mercury’s union with Spica on 10-20-20, Mercury enters retrograde motion near the end of October, where it unifies with the Sun in Virgo. It then returns closer for another visit with Spica to establish its announcement of antiChrist, in early November near Election Day.

11/10-14/20-Comet 323P is found with Mercury the Messenger planet heralding the Comet’s presence in Virgo, as the Sun departs Virgo for Libra, with the Moon at her feet, while the Comet Neowise C/2020 F3, departs Virgo for Bootes, and Venus the bright and Morning Star is near the star Spica, between Comet 323P and Mercury.

11/29-30/20Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2 weeks prior to the Total Solar eclipse in Sagittarius12/14/20.

12/12/2020 -Comet 323P visits the area of Virgo’s womb marked by Comet Neowise in unity with the star Spica, the royal seed that marked the moments of Christ’s birth on 9-11-3BC. This is significant as Spica, the Zemach branch embodies the four-fold ministry of Christ as seen in the Four Gospels. At this time Venus the bright and Morning Star is in Libra the scales of God’s perfect justice, while Mercury, with the Sunmoves near the head of the ScorpionScorpius, in the first week of December.

12/14/20 -Total Solar Eclipse, with the Moon covering the Sun in Sagittarius- the hunter, while Mercury heralds the Sun, the light of the World. Comet 323P’s union with Spica the Zemach Branch, so close to the Total Solar Eclipse, with the Moon’s attempt to block the Sonlight of Christ’s four-fold ministry in Spica, this eclipse shows the battle between light and darkness, with the attempt of the anti-christ to obviate the light of Christ, seen also in the arrows of the hunter’s bow trained on the head and heart of the Scorpion, as Ophiuchus crushes the Scorpion’s heart underfoot. The temporary blockage of this eclipse is a futile attempt to block the enemy’s inevitable defeat.

12/21-25/20-Comet 323P enters Libra/judgment on Christmas-preceded by the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on 12/21/20, the Winter Solstice. The graphic above depicts a phi relationship between Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in 2017 & 2019 and Lunar triple Blood Moons that framed the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15, as they compared to this Great conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn on the last winter solstice. The Lunar triple link above takes the reader to a previous blog that lays out precisely how the 2014-15 Tetrad was framed by Solar and Lunar eclipses, showing a basis for their relation to current celestial and lunar activity, as the movement of Comet 323P was being framed by Blood Moons, seen at the start of this Timeline.

1/4/21-Comet 323P picking up speed, has moved into Scorpius near red star Antares, Venus the bright and Morning Star is found near the star Saiph in Ophiuchusfoot, which indicates the first prophecy of the Promised Seed in Gen. 3:15, where the enemy bruised the heel of the promised seed of the woman. This is evident with Comet 323P near the heart of Scorpius, whose tail is seen below stinging the heel of the 1st Adam, with the Sun hailed by Mercury in Sagittarius, with arrows aimed at the Scorpions’ heart star-Antares.

1/10/21- Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury triple conjunction.

1-11 to 1-17-21; Comet 323P moving much faster now towards union with Venus the bright and Morning Star, and the Moon on the 11th, unifying also with the Sun the light of the world, in Sagittarius the Hunter with arrows trained on the heart of Scorpius-Antares.

1-18-21 to 1-20-21; as Comet 323P exits its union with the Sun in Sagittarius, its union with Saturn, Satan’s planet in Capricorn, exposes the anti-atoning sacrifice on; 1-18-21. Next is the Comet 323P‘s union with Jupiter the King Planet on the 1/19-20/21 also in Capricorn, implying this version of an embodiment of atoning sacrifice may be positioned in the new government. As Comet 323P is with Jupiter the king planet on Inauguration Day, seems to support this notion, not saying it is the puppet Joe Biden. This is followed by the Sun’s union with Jupiter-Saturn & Mercury to signal their allure in Capricorn. With the Sun-the light of the world following so closely on the heels of Comet 323P, with similar planetary unions in Capricorn, it shows Comet 323P, foreshadowing the Sun’s movements with the planets, telling a very similar, but counterfeit story. It is interesting that both Comet 323P, and the Sun are moving from Sagittarius into the sign Capricorn during this transition of political power from one admin to the next, reflecting a spiritual conflict going on behind the scenes. Venus the Bright and Morning Star remains in Sagittarius-the hunter.

Sagittarius-the hunter carrying the victory wreath.

1/26-27/21-Comet 323P unifies with Mercury-Gabriel the Messenger Planet in the sign Aquarius, the Water Bearer, as the Sun-the light of the world, Jupiter the king planet, and Saturn-Satan’s planet remain in the atoning sacrifice of Capricorn. As Aquarius depicts the true record of the abundance of living waters poured forth in the spiritual ministry of Jesus Christ, the false version would be a deluge of evil spirits released to ravage human prey in the enemy’s ministry of stealing, killing and
destroying. [Jn. 10:10] But those of us protected in Christ always overcome the darkness.

2/4-5/21-Comet 323P moves into Pisces, while Venus the bright and Morning Star moves into a union with Saturn, Satan’s planet in Capricornus, showing again the false atoning sacrifice, shining with newly activated political power. The Sun-the light of the world and Jupiter-the king planet still in Capricorn. This is followed 3 days later by a union of Venus and Jupiter, the king planet on 2/8/21, also in Capricornus. This also relates to the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions pointed out in Figure 8 above-45 days after the Jupiter-Saturn Winter Solstice union on 12-21-20.

2/18-19/21-Comet 323P unified with Mars the planet for Michael the Warrior Arch-Angel fighting for and protecting God’s people, in Aries referring to the Lamb of God [Jn. 1:29].The brightest star in the head of Aries the Lamb is called Al Nath-the slain, or wounded, referring to the Lord’s perfect sacrifice for all humanity. Comet 323P then moves into Taurus the Bull, where it approaches the planet Mars in Taurus, joined by the Moon near the Bull’s eye Star-Aldebaran, the leader or Governor, referring to the returning Lord Jesus Christ. 19

3/4/21 Comet 323P is in Taurus with Mars-Michael the warrior arch-angel also in Taurus near the Pleiades, meaning the congregation of the Judge or Ruler, as seen in [Job 9:9, 38:31-32, Amos 5:8]. The Syriac name for this star cluster is Succoth-[Amos 5:26] meaning Booths in reference to the Hebrew Feast of Sukkot, witnessing Jesus tabernacled with his Church. 20

3/15/21 Comet 323P while still moving thru Taurus the Bull with Mars in tow, very near the point where one of its great Horns impales the heel of the Great Shepherd- Auriga at the star Al Nath, meaning the slain. This upholds what we saw before in Comet 323P with Scorpius stinging Ophiuchus’ heel as described in Gen. 3:15, signifying the perfect sacrifice of Christ for all mankind. This is noteworthy since Al Nath is one of the few stars that is considered a member of 2 constellations, both Auriga and Taurus21 This agrees with the first prophecy of the Promised Seed, while establishing the theme of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere axis, providing some of the best evidence for our Gospel in the Stars.

4/8/21-As Comet 323P enters Gemini during the first week of April, Mars does a close fly-by of Al Nath emphasizing the dual nature of Mars, that can be seen as the war planet or an embodiment of Michael the Archangel who fights for God’s People, from one perspective, with the red planet dripping with the blood of war. On the other hand, it can be viewed as the perfect blood sacrifice of the Lord, for Israel and the Church. The meaning is best determined from the context in which Mars appears, that in this case with Auriga the Shepherd, and Taurus the Bull, a common OT Sacrifice, points clearly towards the Lord’s Blood sacrifice. This theme is supported by the Comet in Gemini not speaking of twins, but the Messiah’s dual nature in “sufferings” and “glory” of his first and 2nd  comings. Two weeks later there is a Lunar Occultation of Mars on 4/17/21, near Taurus showing the spiritual conflict with this attempted lunar blockage of Mars-Michael. 
Ten days after there is also a Super-Moon on 4/27/21.

5/20-22/21 Comet 323P in union with Mars the war planet in Gemini. Since Comets are usually a portent of evil, it exhibits opposition to the Messiah and the forces of Light. This conflict between light and darkness is also embodied in the Lunar eclipse on 5/26/21.

5/23/21- Starting with Pentecost Birthday of the Church, the inner planets and Sun/Moon will all by-pass Comet 323P on their ecliptic paths in a parade of planets linked to this Comet in Cancer, and the Beehive Nebula seen by some as a Rapture sign. As with most heavenly signs, the signs precede the actual events. Any sign concerning the appearance of the anti-Christ qualifies as a “Rapture sign” because the Anti-Christ is not revealed till after the Rapture. The word “Rapture” is from Latinrapturo,” not the Greek [harpazo] or Hebrew. The Biblical name is the “Gathering together” [2Thess. 2:1-12]. In our current events, it may also depict the rising persecution of the Christian Church, which we have seen increasing evidence for, with a higher incidence of censorship by the social media giants and our government, along with a crackdown on Church meetings. The Beehive cluster or Nebula called Praesepe in Cancer means multitude or offspring, 22 showing the redeemed coming into their eternal place of rest. This depicts the Lord returning to lead his faithful into their everlasting peaceful rest, along with their place of protection until his return. The Star in the Crab’s claw, called Acubene in Hebrew means the sheltering or hiding place. Another star in CancerMa’alaph means assembled thousands. 23

5/26/21-This Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse visible only over the western US, is the 3rd of four Supermoons in 2021.

This requires that we take time to illustrate some principles of Biblical Astronomy and how proper Biblical Research is conducted in this area. God structured the heavens with the 12 main signs of the Mazzaroth, what many call the “Zodiac,” which is more of an astrological term. Astrology is a counterfeit of true Biblical Astronomy and to stay with accurate labels, we prefer to call things by their Biblical names. Job 38:31-32 refers to the Mazzaroth in his seasons. The 12 signs on the ecliptic circle were created and ordered by God in Gen. 1:14-17, and relate to Israel’s 12 tribes in [Gen. 49, Deut. 33] among other places. God also named and numbered the stars [Ps. 147:4] and a great majority of these sacred names are preserved for us into modern times. The 12 signs of the ecliptic tell the story of Jesus Christ the Promised Seed of the woman, in the first prophecy of this seed who is Jesus Christ; [Gen. 3:15] the only begotten Son of God. The theme of each constellation or star picture that contributes a key aspect of the overall redemption story told in the circle of the Mazzaroth, is supported by the individual star names in each constellation. This is why the ancient star names are the keys that unlock many truths of Biblical Astronomy. It comes down to researching these ancient Star names within the ancient constellations, that also have ancient designations found in God’s Word, to match and inter-relate these terms and see what God’s Word can tell us in the field of Biblical Astronomy. There are also the 36 decans, which have a long history holding many truths since there are 3 with each of the 12 constellations, totaling 36Astrology is not the only category that contains many errors in this category of Bible research. Others who delve into Biblical Astronomy take liberties that go far beyond the principles of true Biblical research. One of these categories of error involves the misuse of Strong’s Concordance. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of Strong’s Concordance with some of its related Lexicons for over 40 years, since I got into Biblical research in 1979. Used correctly, Strong’s number system for Greek and Hebrew words is a proven, invaluable tool of Bible research for multitudes. And as we ascertain the ancient star names used in God’s Word linked to their Strong’s number, we can see where these words, along with their Hebrew/Greek roots are used in the Bible for an accurate record of where, why, to whom, when, and how God’s Word utilizes its terms, to give us an extensive picture of a Biblical subject. However, some are misusing Strong’s numbers by correlating them with dates, and modern scientific designations of stars, for example from Comet or NGC numbers of the catalog of non-star celestial objects to support their favorite teaching themes in error.

Pastor Patrick compared Comet 323P to John the Baptist as a forerunner of Christ, announcing his arrival. Since Comets are usually portents of evil, this was not a good idea. He also linked the number of this Comet [323] to the corresponding number in Strong’s Concordance, with the meaning of this Greek word as a showing forth. However, as we are illustrating in Biblical AstronomyMercury-Gabriel is the Messenger Planet, who has the role of announcing or heralding an event or person. Mercury is linked to this speedy messenger planet because Mercury has the shortest and fastest orbit of any other planet in our Solar System, and has long been characterized in this role in ancient mythology. Since God is the One Who spun the planets in their orbits via to His perfect timetable, and He commands the presence of his angels to do His bidding, we should let His placement and position of His celestial bodies speak on their own.
Pastor Patrick also refers to the Greek word [Harpazo-G726] where the link relating to the Rev. 12 sign is evident; [Rev. 12:5] but the Rev. 12 sign takes place on 9-11 not 7-26, so I don’t immediately correlate it to the 7-26 date as a prediction, or the signs that take place on 7-26 [see below]. There are other examples of this kind of practice in the video, that only detracts from authentic Biblical Astronomy teaching. As we find in the narrative of these signs related to Comet 323P, each celestial body named in Scripture, carries its own message which relates what is going on with each event. As we compare these events with the known history of Biblical Astronomy, along with current events, we can recognize congruencies as they occur. This provides a solid footing as we compare current events with similar events in the history of Biblical Astronomy related to Hebrew feast and holy days, and the life and Ministry of Jesus Christ related to the Hebrew Calendar, Temple, or Tabernacle, and their sacred implements, etc. Since God first wrote the Gospel of the redemption story in the Stars, before it was ever written in Scripture, we must treat the Gospel in the Stars with the same care that we should handle the Holy Scripture. When we do, the Gospel in the Stars holds tremendous revelation that was disclosed to the Bible Patriarchs as their sole source of written words that were penned from the Hand of the Almighty Creator. These words must be allowed to speak for themselves, first and foremost which also holds true for the written Scripture, as the Apostle Peter tells us;

2 Peter 1:20-21 KJV – Knowing this first, no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.

With this short summary of Biblical Astronomy Research Principles, that guide the integrity of research from this blog and website, the reader has a basic idea of how these principles can preserve our content, guarding against private or one’s own interpretation of God’s Word, whether written in the Stars or in the Bible. There is naturally, much more to this subject, but we will leave that for another time. Here are the rest of the signs linked to Comet 323P in 2021.

6/10/21-Annular Solar Eclipse-a Ring of fire eclipse visible in eastern US, Canada, Greenland and Russia.

6/24/21-Comet 323P union with Venus the bright and Morning Star in Cancer, the Messiah’s Redeemed property held fast and a refuge for believers.

7/10-11/21-The Moon by-passes Comet 323P in Cancer. The next day on 7/12/21-Comet 323P in the body of Cancer, with the union of Venus and Mars in the left pincer of Cancer the crab. We know that this is a corrupted star picture from the Hebrew Mazzaroth because there is no word for “crab” in Hebrew.

7/19/21-Venus the bright and Morning Star in union with Regulus the king star in Leo. 

7/25/21-Comet 323P unified with Mercury the Messenger Planet, and the Sun as the light of the world in Cancer @ the Beehive Nebula at Praesepe, while Venus the bright and Morning Star and Mars are framing Regulus in Leo.

7/26-27/21-Sun by-passes Comet 323P in Cancer, with Mercury heralding the Sun also in Cancer, while Venus and Mars-Michael the Warrior Arch-Angel still frame the king star Regulus in Leo.

7/31/21-Mercury the Messenger Planet by-passes the Sun and Comet 323P in Cancer, with Mars-Michael unified at Regulus the king star, while Venus is mid-bodied in Leo.

8/11/21-With Comet 323P passing Cancer and the Sun heading towards Leo, there is a Mercury-Regulus union, with Mars mid-bodied in Leo, and the Moon in Leo’s tail section. Here Comet 323P is returning to its starting position between Leo and Cancer. This occurs 30 days before the Rev. 12 sign on 9-11-21.

8/21/21-Comet 323P has past the boundary of Cancer with Comet 8P Tuttle also in Cancer, on the 27th as this fly-by of Comets marks the return of 323P to its starting position. The Moon is between Jupiter-Saturn in Scorpius the Scorpion with the Sun in union with Regulus in Leo, and Mercury-Gabriel aligned with Mars-Michael both also aligned with Regulus in Leo.

9/11-12/21-Rev. 12 sign with Sun Clothing Virgo and the Moon at her feet, with the planets; Mercury-Venus framing Spica, and Mars aligned with Regulus in Leo. With the nine major stars of Leo, the addition of these 3 planets crowns Virgo with 12 stars. This is three days after the Rosh Hashanah/Shemita holy-day; 9-8-21, and the Trumpet FeastComet 8P Tuttle, also in Hydra, in its closest approach to Earth on 9-12-21, with Jupiter the king planet in Aquarius and Saturn nearby in Capricornus-depicting again Satan as a false-atoning sacrifice in Capricorn, seen not only in Jan 21‘, but also with Jupiter-Saturn’s Lunar union as Saturn passes into Capricornus; 6-24-20, three days after the Annular Solar eclipse marking the 1st motion of Comet 323P, that opened this “Year of the Cometframed between two Blood Moons. As we can see, this 3-day gap seems to mirror the 3 days between Christ’s Birth on 9-11-3BC on Rosh Hashanah, and the 1st Jupiter-Regulus union in Leo, marking the triple coronation ceremony of the Lord Jesus Christ, written in the Stars in 3-2 BC, as seen below!

Figure 10. Jupiter opens the triple crowning of Regulus in Leo, 9-14-3 BC, 3 days after Christ’s birth. 25

This Graphic shows the positions of Jupiter the King planet, triple crowning the King Star Regulus in Leo, Sept. 14th 3 BC, to Feb. 17th, 2 BC, and May 8th, 2 BC.

As this 3-day gap including the Hebrew New Year of Rosh Hashanah is mirrored both at the opening and closing of this Year of the Comet 323P, so also is the appearance of Saturn in Capricornus as the false atoning sacrifice, foreshadowing the anti-christ, aspects of Comet 323P. These signs frame the start and end of the motion of this Comet, along with other Comet’s we have pointed out like; 8P Tuttle, 2P Encke and Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2. Comet Neowise C/2020 F3 also reappears here about 9-11-21 in Libra the scales of judgment, which is consistent with other Comet activity in Hydra-the serpent destroyed, and its decans; Crater and Corvus the Raven-carrion eater. As we take note of these 3-day gaps on Hebrew Feast and Holy days involving the Rev.12 sign, at a time reflecting the birth of Christ, we should also recall the 3-day gap at the end of Christ’s earthly ministry, that he spent in the heart of the earth, prior to his resurrection, as he conquered death for all mankind. As we celebrate this holiday this coming weekend, we should be mindful of our victory in Jesus, as we prepare for his Second Coming, to meet him in the Air!

Happy Resurrection Saturday Everyone!

With a cursory review of the rare triple union of Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury in January, and to bring in  the month of February, with added context, we find another triple planetary union including Jupiter and Mercury, but this time with the added presence of Venus on 2-11-21. This triple union also takes place in close proximity to the Moon. In a flutter of celestial traffic opening to a reprise on a triple union of planets, Venus first unities with Saturn in conjunction on Feb. 5th, 2021. Five days later, Saturn is found in union with the Moon on Feb. 10th, 2021. This shows Saturn is still in the neighborhood with Jupiter as a result of their great conjunction back in Dec12/21-22/20, because on the very next day the triangular union of Venus, Mercury and Jupiter occurs near the Moon on Feb. 11th, on the eve of the New Moon on Feb. 12th. This is highlighted by an awesome union of Jupiter-Venus in the pre-dawn light of Feb. 11th as a prelude to the triple union of planets on the same day! This celestial showcase is followed in quick succession by the conjunction of Mercury and Venus on February 13th. This is a special treat for those amorous observers of Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14th as the planet of Love is announced by MercuryGabriel, not cupid, but the much more powerful Messenger Archangel, united with Venus, the bright and Morning Star, the real reason for true Love in the world, as Christ emanates the magnanimous infinite love of the Heavenly Father to all mankind.

This very busy month of February 2021 continues with another conjunction taking place February 18th between the Moon and Mars, followed by the planetary union on February 23rd of Saturn and Mercury
Finally, February 27th closes the month with its Full Moon!

ven_jup_160815

Previously we have seen a triangular union of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, as they aligned at dusk in the horns of Taurus during the last week of May, 2013. There was also a triangular massing of these 3 planets in Leo, August 15th, 2016, as seen above in Figure 1. Next month in March, another Jupiter-Mercury union is set to take place. Prior to daybreak over the eastern horizon on March 5, 2021 the King planet and the bright and Morning star will be visible together. Key upcoming triple conjunctions are set for April 20th, 2026 [MercuryMarsSaturn] and June 162028, as the inner planets consisting of Mercury, Venus and Mars are involved. Below we find an image of this month’s triangular union of Mercury, Jupiter and Venus, with Saturn also aligned on the ecliptic with Jupiter and Venus. 2

Conjunction

As we recall, the conjunction of Jupiter-Venus the sky’s two brightest planets, was also one of the signature planetary unions marking the birth of Christ, with the Jupiter-Venus union on Aug. 12th 3 BC, about a month in advance of the Rev. 12 sign on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. In this light, it is fascinating that this spectacular JupiterVenus conjunction in the dawn’s early light of Feb. 11th is a precursor to the triple union of Venus, Mercury and Jupiter with the Moon on the same day, due to their existing relationship, not only with the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, but also to the birth of Christ, with the Aug. 31st Mercury-Venus union in Leo in 3 BC. The relationship of Mercury-Venus conjunctions to the recent Blood Moon Tetrad is found in their three planetary unions of 2014 below;

Venus-Mercury Conjunctions of 2014

Jan. 7th, 2014 [1 year prior to central Blood Moon Tetrad date of 2014-2015]
October 17th, 2014
Dec. 30th, 2014

Not only did these three Mercury-Venus unions set the stage for the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions of 2015-2017, but the 1st union of Mercury-Venus falls 1 year before the center date of all celestial activity linked to the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. In other words, the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 falls in between two lunar triples, on the Days of Av, starting Dec. 21st, 2010 and finishing Jan. 21st, 2019. These days of Av mark the destruction of the Hebrew Temple in the history of the Jews, and are considered the saddest days on the Hebrew Calendar. As we consider also that the first Blood Moon of this Tetrad on April 15th, 2014, with the last Blood Moon on Sept. 28th, 2015, the mid-date between these Blood Moons is also Jan. 5th, 2015! This depicts not only the rarity of this Blood Moon Tetrad, but also when a version of the Rev. 12 sign is present, there is usually an implication for the Temple of Jerusalem either been destroyed in the past, or a reference to the Third future Temple.

Jesus On My Mind - Blood Moon Tetrads and Triples and Solar Eclipses

As there were three 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 Sept. 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! This was not all, as there were more heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus after this, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb.

As these Blood Moons of the end days are centered between the saddest days on the Hebrew Calendar, the days of Av in 2010-11 and 2018-19, they recall the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple on two key occasions in their history, one of which is highlighted below, with the 69-71 AD heavenly signs, marking the Roman’s Destruction of their Temple. In the early work on The Celestial Prelude, no reference was made to Mercury-Venus unions in the chart above, but in his book, The Birth of Christ Recalculated, Ernest Martin states; “On the morning of September 1, Venus and Mercury came into conjunction only .35 degrees apart...”5

Dr. Martin goes on to tell us how this Mercury-Venus conjunction set the stage for the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions around the birth of Christ, highlighted by their spectacular June 17th 2 BC union:

“After the Sept. 1 meeting with Mercury, Venus journeyed back into the light of the Sun, emerging in the West as an evening star about 20 December, 3 BC, and when this happened, an observer would have noticed the planet just after sunset moving progressively higher in the sky (going more easterly) with each succeeding day. This movement placed Venus on a collision course with Jupiter which was moving westward. At the period when Venus had just passed its easternmost elongation from the Sun (the farthest east of the Sun that Venus ever reaches) on 17 June, 2 BC, the two planets “collided”. They were 0.04 degrees away from each other. This was a most uncommon occurrence. To an observer on Earth, the luminosity that each planet displayed made them look like one gigantic star. It was as if Venus had stretched herself as far eastward as she was able, in order to join with Jupiter as he reached westward to meet her. This conjunction occurred at the exact time of the full Moon. The whole of the evening sky was being illumined from the east by the full light of the Moon, while the western quarter was being adorned with the Jupiter/Venus conjunction. Professor D.C. Morton, Senior Research Astronomer @ Princeton University, said the conjunction of 17 June, 2BC, was a notable astronomical event [ZPEB, vol. I, pg. 398]. Such closeness had not been witnessed in generations. Roger W. Sinnott, writing in the astronomical journal Sky and Telescope, December, 1968, ppgs. 384-386, referred to this conjunction as a brilliant “double star” that finally gave the appearance of fusing together into a single “star” as the planets drew nearer the western horizon. He said that only the sharpest of eyes would have been able to split them and that the twinkling caused by the unsteady horizon atmosphere would have blended them into one giant “star” for almost all viewers. “The fusion of two planets would have been a rare and awe-inspiring event” [pg. 386]. Here were the 2 brightest planets in the heavens merging together. This was happening at the period when Venus was approaching her time of greatest brilliance.”6

The following dates, depict similar Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Virgo in 2016-2017:

July 27th, 2016
Aug. 26-27th, 2016 [Jupiter enters Virgo] starting its retrograde in Virgo’s womb
Feb. 26th, 2017
Sept. 23rd, 2017 [Virgo clothed with the Sun/Moon @ feet]-Rev. 12:1-2
Nov. 13th, 2017

These two brightest planets – Venus and Jupiter – teamed up to provide the closest planetary conjunction of 2014, and it was the closest Venus- Jupiter conjunction until August 27, 2016, noted above. In the eastern dawn, starting in mid-August, these two dazzlingly-brilliant planets moved closest together around August 18, 2014. The
notable Venus- Jupiter union with only about a 1/3 degree separation, was the only one of 2014, and took place between the first two Blood Moons of the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. The 1st Jupiter-Venus union linked  with the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 took place in the Beehive cluster in the Sign of Cancer, the Crab on August 18th, 2014. The 2nd Jupiter-Venus union of the Blood Moon Tetrad, was on July 1, 2015, between the 3rd and 4th Blood Moons of our 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. Since there is no Hebrew word for “crab” we know this is not the original star picture in the Hebrew Zodiac for this Zodiacal Sign. There are two bright stars in this sign called the Northern and Southern Asses, tied to the Hebrew Tribe Issachar, as seen in Genesis 49.

August 18th, 2014 Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Beehive Cluster of Cancer

[Gen. 49:9-12]. 9 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. 11 Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes. 12 His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk.

The Beehive Star cluster or nebulae in the sign Cancer, also known as Praesepe, means “multitude or offspring, indicating the redeemed coming into their place of eternal rest.”7  This is an obvious indicator of the return of Christ leading his faithful to their everlasting peaceful rest in the Lord. These modern heavenly signs of the Celestial Sphinx are manifesting before our eyes in the last days leading to the victorious Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, when he establishes his kingdom on earth. Dr. Martin provides some fascinating details shedding light on the rewind of the heavenly signs marking the Lord’s Second Coming.

While Jupiter was on its westward journey to link up with Venus for the spectacular 17 June, 2BC, reunion, Jupiter was showing some displays of its own. Just 33 days after the first Jupiter/Venus conjunction (12 August, 3 BC), an observer would have seen Jupiter come into juxtaposition with Regulus (the principal star in the constellation of Leo, a star of the 1st magnitude). The conjunction occurred on 14 September, 3BC, and viewed from the Earth the two celestial bodies were 0.67 degrees apart. After that, Jupiter proceeded on his normal course through the heavens, and on 1 December, 3BC, the planet stopped its motion through the fixed stars to begin its annual retrogression. In doing so, it headed once again towards the star Regulus. On the 17th of February, 2BC, the two were reunited (1.19 degrees apart). Jupiter was again, side by side with the star, the two bodies being 1.06 degrees from each other (for Jupiter to unite with Regulus 3 times in 1 year is not common. It occurred 12 years earlier in 15/14BC, and before that in 86/85BC. It was not to recur until 69/70 AD). After this 3rd conjunction with Regulus, Jupiter continued moving westward for 40 days (in an apparent sense) to reunite with Venus in the rare conjunction of 17 June, 2 BC.”8

As we compare these heavenly signs around the birth of Christ with the signs of the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad leading to 2017, we note that even as Jupiter moved in its annual retrograde motion entering Virgo in August 26-27 2016, for a total of 294 days, taking us into 2017, it only spends 40 days in Virgo’s mid-section, symbolizing the birthing of the Messianic Kingdom. This embodies the long-prophesied King and Kingdom of the Jews that they rejected in the first advent of ChristJupiter marks its entrance into Virgo with a 2nd Jupiter-Venus union of 2016. This is worthy of our attention indicating a key event with the King Planet-Jupiter related to his virgin Bride-Virgo/Israel, with added references to the Church of his spiritual body leading to his glorious Second Coming. This alerts us to be watchful of the Sun Clothing Virgo leading us directly to the signs of 9-23-2017! Dr. Martin also mentioned that triple conjunctions of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC were uncommon, since the next one did not recur till 69/70 AD. It is also key to recall the 3-day gap between Christ’s birth on Tishri 1; 9-11-3 BC, on Hebrew New Year’s and the first union of Jupiter-Regulus on 9-14-3 BC. As we see in Table 1 below, the first of three unions of Jupiter-Regulus on 10-15-69 AD, took place only 3 days prior to the opening Partial Lunar Eclipse on the Feast of Tabernacles on 10/18/69′. This is intriguing since Jesus‘ told those present in Herod’s Temple where he uttered the words to “destroy this temple” in John 2:19. This verse holds figurative references not only to Jesus‘ physical body that was raised 3 days after he was crucified, but also by referring to his body as a “temple,” showed how he symbolized Israel, as the Church of the Bride.

This shows the juxtaposition of the relation between Christ and Anti-Christ and how this opposition centers on Jerusalem in history, especially in regards to the Gentiles’ destruction of the Jerusalem Temple. As we
focus on the Scriptural history regarding the trials of Jerusalem with historical figures like Nebuchadnezzar, Titus and Antiochus IV, have conquered the holy city, since the Bible’s Anti-Christ Equation reveals a key link to prophecies related to the Gentiles treading Jerusalem under-foot. An example where Jerusalem was trodden down by the Roman Empire for 666 years, from the Battle of Actium in 31 BC, to the conquest of the Saracen’s in 636 AD. 9 There is also a 666-year cycle covering a period of the captivity of Jerusalem by Babylon from 597 BC, to its destruction by the Romans in 70 AD. Thus we can see at least two 666 year periods linked to the Gentiles treading Jerusalem under-foot. These two captivity periods also agree with the four beast kingdoms of Daniel’s vision, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.

As we may recall, this included the Roman’s destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem in 69/70 AD, that was prophesied by Christ in 27 AD. Although there were no Blood Moons during this period, there were Lunar and Solar Eclipses and a Jupiter-Regulus triple union taking place on the following Hebrew Feast and Holy days:

There was also a 1 degree Triangular massing of Jupiter-Venus, Mars in Leo on October 28th2015, which was preceded earlier in the month by a planetary alignment with Regulus in Leo, [see Figure 1. below]. This is significant due to the resemblance again of the Rev. 12 heavenly sign, where the WomanVirgo is crowned with 12 stars, consisting of the 9 fixed stars in Leo, combined with the three planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars, forming the Crown of 12 stars over Virgo’s head. This alignment sets the stage for the Feast of Tabernacles week, marked by the Super Blood Moon of Sept. 28th. A similar planetary alignment was be seen again in Sept. of 2017, involving the same players except Mercury was replaced by Jupiter in Leo, since Jupiter was birthed in Virgo. This serves as key celestial foreshadowing 2 years prior to this birthing of Jupiter in Virgo.

Figure 1. Planetary Alignment in Leo, October 3rd, 2015

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the Rev. 12 birth signs of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple alignment of Jupiter-Mars, & Venus in Leo with Regulus, reflects similar spiritual light in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 20142015. 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, united with Spica/Al Zimach, on this day-2 years ahead of the rewind of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017!  There were however more 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. As these signs linked to the signs marking Christ’s Birth and the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, also hold significance for the Hebrew Temple, it is wise to stay watchful of events involving the prophesied appearance Third Hebrew Temple in Jerusalem.

As this rewind of heavenly signs marking Jesus’ first appearance on earth occur in the context of the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad, the celestial warnings of the Second Coming are undeniable to those with eyes to see and ears to hear. All these heavenly signs seem pointed towards Sept. 23rd, 2017 at the time, when many predicted the return of Christ erroneously, aligning with the returning heavenly signs of 9/11/3BC that marked the birth of Christ. These returning signs from [Rev. 12:1-2], marking the coming kingdom of the Lord, play a key role in the current celestial announcements re-appearing before our eyes. We don’t waste time predicting specific dates for the Lord’s return, but God would not have seeded the heavens with all these awesome signs, if He did not want us to be aware of the signs of the times. Prepare yourself and your loved ones as the promises of the Hope of Christ’s victorious return approaches.

God Bless!!

Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury Triangular Massing, Jan. 2021

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome into 2021 and let’s put 2020 as far back in the rearview mirror as it will go! We covered some good ground with our blog last year and we are opening the New Year by extending  the topic of December’s blog. Of course, we are keeping Jon Nessle and his family in our hearts and prayers for his full recovery from Covid, and believing for his completely successful restoration to health.

If you caught the Jupiter-Saturn Great conjunction last month, this union of the largest planets in our Solar System is certainly an eye-opener for their renown in the history of astronomy. These planetary giants share both individual and common elements in the annuls of Biblical Astronomy, among the most notable of any known planets in our celestial neighborhood. They spent most of 2020 moving ever closer, in Sagittarius and Capricorn, as they neared their appointed 20-year union last December, in regular conjunction. As the New Year opens we find Mercury rising to meet these celestial titans descending into the solar fires of the horizon sunset in mid-January 2021. As Mercury speeds to meet the much slower colossal planetary pair, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury will appear to pack themselves in the triangular close confines of a 5-degree circle, from Jan. 8th-10th. The pattern of this three-fold planetary massing went from an elongated triangle on Jan. 8th, to a near equilateral triangle on Jan. 10. Jupiter will occupy the top of the triangle as the brightest of the three, with Mercury and Saturn forming the base angles. The sides of the triangle each measure about 2 degrees, as this triangular massing packs closer into about a 2.5 degree circle on Jan. 12th.

Figure 1. Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury in a triangular planetary massing in Capricorn.

This triangular union of planets takes place in Capricorn, pictured as the Goat with a fish-tail. In the Goat we find the atoning sacrifice of Christ, while in the fish we have the body of believers for whom the sacrifice was made. Brilliant Jupiter (mag. –1.9), med-bright Mercury (-0.9) with dimmer, yellowish Saturn (+0.6) were closest together on Sunday evening (Jan. 10), when Jupiter and perhaps Mercury are visible to the naked eye.1 After Sunday, Saturn recedes into the bright twilight first, trailed by Jupiter fading into the solar glare in mid-Jan. On Jan. 23, Saturn moves behind the Sun closely followed by Jupiter, Jan. 28. A few weeks later, the pair of titans will emerge in the morning light being visible in the predawn eastern night sky. This cyclical planetary renewal in the dawn’s early light as Jupiter and Saturn transition to our sunrise skies, are joined by Mercury, in another triple union before daybreak, as Mercury, Venus and Jupiter meet together on Feb. 13, 2021. The entrance of Venus into this picture is noteworthy as we find in the comparison of celestial signs and planetary unions in 2015, below.

A recent previous instance of a Jupiter-Mercury massing of planets also took place near Regulus in Leo, in August2015, as seen in Plate 1 below. This shows Jupiter-the King Planet unified with Regulus the king star, declared by Mercury as the Messenger Archangel Gabriel. This reminds us of celestial signs of the birth of Christ, with the triple crowning of the King star Regulus by the King Planet Jupiter in Leo in 3-2 BC, as the archangel Mercury-Gabriel announced the birth of the promised seed-Jesus Christ. This idea was established the day before on August 5th, 2015 with a Venus-Mercury union in Leo, where the messenger Planet Mercury-Gabriel and Venus the Bright and Morning Star met in Leo, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Then on August 6th, we have Jupiter and Mercury meeting at Regulus as seen below.

Plate 1. Jupiter and Mercury with Regulus in Leo 8-6-2015.

Within 3 weeks prior to this triple union of planets on July 17th, 2015 there was also a Venus-Regulus union in Leo, displaying the union of two natures of Christ in the Bright and Morning Star-Venus along with the King Star-Regulus. This triple planetary union was inserted between 2 Jupiter-Venus conjunctions that opened and closed the month of July in 2015. We have provided a summary of these planetary unions including 3 Jupiter-Venus conjunctions between July-Oct. 2015, linked to the Plate 1 graphic below.

The following day-August 7th, 2015 was a busy day with two separate planetary conjunctions on the same day. First, there was a Jupiter-Mercury conjunction in Leo the Lion, signifying a union of the King Planet with the Messenger Planet Mercury-Gabriel. As the fastest moving planet in its orbit around the Sun, Mercury closed its triangle with Jupiter-Regulus on the 6th of August, until reaching close union with Jupiter the King Planet on the 7th. Later that same day Mercury reached a close conjunction with Regulus-the King Star, forming a tight celestial triangle, in the Lion of Judah. It’s like Gabriel the Messenger archangel declared his support for Christ first as the bright and Morning Star-Venus. Then in its triangular union with Jupiter-Regulus, it supports both the King Planet and the king star. These added elements of Christ were announced by Gabriel together, prior to being singled out by Mercury-Gabriel in individual planetary unions each with Jupiter and Regulus.

This notable day [Aug. 7th, 2015] of dual conjunctions was followed on August 11th, 2015 with a Jupiter-Regulus union in Leo, displaying a unified front between the King Planet and King Star in the Lion of Judah. Once Gabriel had announced the King planet and the King star, then Jupiter-Regulus were cleared to show their individual unity. In the King planet’s regular 12-year [11.86 year] orbit around the Sun, Jupiter enters the constellation Leo every 12 years. With each 7th cycle of Jupiter’s 12-year visit with LeoJupiter shares 2 unions with Regulus, translating into 2 Jupiter-Regulus triple unions every 83 years; [11.86 x 7=83.02]. These are based on the retrograde motion of Jupiter that is visible from earth as a crown circling 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 union with Regulus except when Jupiter is in retrograde motion. As it happens, we were approaching one of Jupiter’s normal unions with Regulus on Aug. 11th, 2015. It has been discerned  that the birth of Christ took place during the seventh 83-year cycle, 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 was 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]. God’s precision timing is impeccable.

We must also distinguish the elements of the rulership of Jesus as the King of Kings, from Jesus‘ authority in putting his Kingdom into place, as it parallels the Sufferings and Glory of Christ. This not only accounts for the similarity of celestial signs at Christ’s birth, compared with the signs we are seeing in the present day, that also highlights areas where we can discern how current celestial signs focus on Christ’s glorious Return, when he installs the ironclad authority of his kingdom on earth. Taking into account these two phases of the Advent of the promised seed, first in his sufferings second in his glory, we find the following division along the lines of Jesus’ ministry as seen in the four gospels and the four Cardinal points of the ecliptic:

Sufferings

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

Glory

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

Figure 2. The Four Celestial Signs at the four points of the Compass; Man, Eagle, Bull & Lion.

The Four Cardinal Points

As symbolic references to the four quarters of heaven, the 4 unified faces of the living creatures represent the vision of Ezekiel at the river Chebar describing the faces of the living creatures,  matching the signs of the four Cardinal Directions of the heavens, [Ezek. 1:3-11]. As a composite of the celestial narrative, these signs witness to the return of Christ the redeemer, and his judgment on the assembly of the wicked.

Below we find a list of celestial signs and planetary conjunctions from July to October of 2015, which preceded the replay of the Rev. 12:1-2 sign at the birth of Christ on Sept. 11th, 3 BC that showed up again on Sept. 23rd, 2017. The following list dates not only the Jupiter-Venus unions in Leo during the transition from the Hebrew Sabbatical year to the Jubilee year of 2015-16, but other notable planetary unions and heavenly signs in Virgo and Leo forming the Celestial Sphinx during this period:

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 climax of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

Image result for Rev. 12 Sign on Sept 23rd 2017 images

Even as there were key celestial signs that took place exactly two years before the Rev. 12 sign at birth of Christ in 3 BC, so also we find these celestial signs of 2015 showing up exactly 2 years prior to the return of the Rev. 12 sign, Sept. 23rd, 2017. These signs in 7-5 BC are what allowed the Magi to recognize the star signs that marked the birth of Christ, and there may be a similar pattern in play to help us recognize the arrival and installation of Christ’s Kingdom on Earth.

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, as 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 a four-month period in 2015.

Jupiter-Venus Conjunction
jupiter-venus

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 a Crown of Virgo in the repeat of the Rev. 12:1-2; “Great Wonder in Heaven” on Sept. 23rd 2017, summarized in the Celestial Sphinx.

With our eyes to the skies, we remain vigilant in our observation of the celestial signs that the Creator has placed in the planetary cycles and conjunctions, where the Gospel in the Stars agrees with the testimony of the Gospel in Scripture. In the natural progression from last month’s Jupiter-Saturn union, to this month’s Mercury Jupiter-Saturn triple union, we will watch for the next triple union before daybreak, of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter as they meet together next month on Feb. 13, 2021.

God Bless!

Comments Off on Jupiter-Saturn and Mercury Triangular Massing, Jan. 2021

In our annual recognition of Pi Day. March 14th of every year [3.14] we are reposting the following blog related to the Hebrew Menorah and the Pi ratio. The Menorah is one of the sacred pieces of “furniture” in the Hebrew Temple & Tabernacle, that themselves were designed by the Creator using universal constants like Pi/Phi in addition to the Ark of the Covenant.

The Structure of the Hebrew Menorah and the Pi ratio.

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

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

harmonica macrocosmica

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

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

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

Figure 1. The Menorah and Genesis 1:1. 3

1. The seven branches of the Candelabra are built on the first seven words of Gen. 1:1.

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

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

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

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

 See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALEPH + TAV = 401 

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

   

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

 401 = 401 

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

 LEFT PRIME FACTOR SUM: 

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

RIGHT PRIME FACTOR SUM: 

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

LEFT/RIGHT PRIME FACTOR SYMMETRY: 

       175  (401)  175 

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

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

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

THE CIRCLE OF THE FIRST AND THE LAST 

  

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

DIAMETER = 401 units 

  “ISAIAH” = 401 

FIRST + LAST Hebrew letters = 1 + 400 = 

             401 

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

             401 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Menorah’s height excluding the lamps was also 17 handbreadths high [17 Tefachim+1 including the base] which also corresponds to the first 17 words of Numbers 1:1.
.
Num. 1:1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

Leo Tavares tells us:
The Bible details in Exodus 25:31-35 how God commanded the Israelites to make a Menorah made of pure gold, which was a lampstand with 7 branches (a CENTER branch and 3 united pairs of branches). This Biblical passage consists of 324 Hebrew letters (or 18 × 18 letters). It follows that we can represent these Hebrew letters as an 18 × 18 Matrix. When we do this, we find that the Ordinal number values of the Hebrew letters form a perfect shape of a Menorah yielding a sum of 999: 10 

 

MENORAH = 999 

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

 GENESIS 1:1 MENORAH 

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

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

Exodus 25:31-40

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Strong’s geometric synopsis of this verse states:

Image result for 7 Spirits of God Colors

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

Figure 5. The Hebrew Menorah. 12

central shaft and of the six arms

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

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

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

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

God Bless,
