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

The Father of Lights

God Bless everyone, I’m Very Blessed to have another opportunity to share on Tune-in Tuesday in this great “Attributes of God” series. In recent sessions Rev. Nessle taught about some ancient Greek ideas and traditions from Plato, Socrates & Aristotle, that centered on 4 key points where Greek Philosophy negatively affected Judeo-Christian thought. Jon quoted from Chapter 2 of “The Semantics of Biblical Language” by James Barr, and I’d like to open with a focus on at least 2 of these key points tonight.  Rev. Nessle also spoke about obliterating what he called the “Perfection Infection” from Greek Philosophy, supported by the “I Am” teaching related to “God’s Being,” that gave rise to a field of study called “Ontology.” Jon suggested we should take the rare opportunity to obliterate this entire category of study, so it occurred to me; what better way to undermine this area of ontological study than to show how the adversary built a basis for this attack against the true God, on the Serpent’s temptation of Eve in the Garden of Eden. The Four points of Greek thought and influence on western culture identified by Barr are:

1. Static vs. Dynamic or Being vs. Becoming [Concept of God/Time]
2. Abstract vs. Concrete
3. Greek Mortal & Immortal Soul vs. Hebrew “Soul”-Nephesh
4. Analytical
[divisive] vs. Unified Semitic Thought

Our two points of focus tonight are: #1 & #3.

To understand this first point of Static vs. Dynamic we need to grasp how The Creator set up His original Balances of Justice to see how the serpent deceived Eve with his counterfeit.

Gen. 2:7-9

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. The Lord God planted a garden east-ward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
15 Then the Lord God took [d]the man and put him in the garden of Eden to [e]tend and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you[f] shall surely die.”

Our position regarding the only genuine power of the human mind is simple, the only power originating in the human mind is freedom of will. With this God-given ability, men and angels can choose what to believe. In The Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were created as freewill agents who had an innocent knowledge of good, evil remained a potential and they were not ashamed before God. God’s gift of Freedom of Will is a central pillar of God’s Light, demonstrating His Goodness. He does not desire a family of robots! Since God is the perfectly Just God, and in order for freedom of will to be a reality, God had to make the potential for an alternative to His Will available, or else He would be legislating the outcomes, since the only options available to man would have been in accordance with God’s Will. In this sense, God’s balances of justice were set in a state of equilibrium from the start,  because an alternative to His Will was only a potential according to angelic and human choice. As long as men and angels obeyed the truth of God’s Will the fruits of God’s perfect creation were enjoyed by all, but with the disobedience of God’s Will, calamity ensued.

In my first teaching in this series we introduced an Attribute of God as the Father of Lights.  Tonight we will expand on that concept beginning in Genesis 1.

In Genesis 1:3 “God said let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good, and God Divided the light from the darkness.”

This division of spiritual light from darkness is not the same as the division of day from night in the physical heavens, [Gen. 1:14-17], which represents the Creator’s temporal order, regulated by the solar, lunar and star calendars inherent in the celestial cycles of the Sun, Moon and Stars. The light of verses 3-4 was Spiritual light from the Almighty Creator-God that enlightened His Creation in the Heavens & Earth before the Sun, Moon and Stars were set in the heavens in verses 14-17, thus the division between light and darkness took place first in the Spiritual realm not the physical, as a result of the fallout from Lucifer’s revolt with the angels he deceived, in his coup attempt against God, [2 Pet. 3:4-7, Rev. 12:4]. As these angels rebelled they separated themselves from the Father of lights, and the potential evil that resulted from this disobedience; “Original Sin” was activated, in the spiritual realm, preceding the entropy of the physical realm. This lead to the first Heaven and Earth becoming without form and void, since we know that the Father of lights did not create it that way. As such the Creator and Father of Lights was above the spiritual corruption resulting from the Original Sin of the angels in Lucifer’s revolt. The Genesis Creation record picks up here showing God’s restoration of Creation in the 2nd Heaven and Earth.

Gen. 3:1-4

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LordGod had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’

Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was [a]pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves [b]coverings.

In the Genesis 3:4 record of the serpent’s temptation of Eve, on one level the serpent deceived Eve with the illusion that God was “in control” of the “necessary” boundaries of both Good and evil, because they were supposedly part of God’s Original Creation in the beginning. A key point here is the Serpent’s inclusion of God within these boundaries of both Good and evil as part of a false symbiotic temporal balance where order prevailed in a static universe of harmony and peace. Sounds nice doesn’t it? The serpent then tempted Eve with his altered static conception of God in Time, in the context of Eve’s self-gratification. In Gen. 3:6 the word “desired” in the Aramaic means “turned on” and is totally in the category of sexual self-gratification. Eve got to the point of lusting after this knowledge to gratify her selfish desire to possess this Wisdom of God, with the critical element of the knowledge of evil that the serpent presented as the key God was witholding, that was preventing her from sharing in the “true knowledge of God.” The serpent presented this outside of her sacred union in marriage with her earthly Lord-husband Adam, “liberated” from the godly relationship set up by the Heavenly Father, Who put the true godly knowledge of good without evil, in context of their sacred mutual relationship with their Heavenly Father of Lights.

Thus the serpent presented a scenario where the Almighty God was capable of both good and evil. The notion that God created both light and darkness “in the beginning” is a lie promulgated by the adversary-who would have us believe that God created the earth in chaos, or-“without form and void” so that he can paint a picture of God that of necessity embodies a balance of order and Chaos. This also allows the enemy to steal man’s worship directed to the true God, because of the false god of good and evil that the serpent replaced Him with. This dogma enables the adversary to bring God down to the level of the natural senses man, under the pretext of the “immortal soul” dogma, [#3 above] that the soul never really dies but, merely migrates to the next level of enlightenment on an infinite journey towards perfection. This is merely the Perfection infection, applied to the spiritual walk of mankind, embodied in the serpent’s lie that “ye shall be as god’s” knowing good and evil. This also supports a premise of “psychic power” that says by utilizing the principles of order one can harness and control the forces of chaos, by communing with, and developing the “spark of the divine” latent in the sub-conscious of all humanity. In reality however, this enables the spirit realm to control mankind through the power of this deception. Here we find the two-fold essence of the serpent’s lie in Genesis 3:4-6; “ye shall not surely die” and ye shall be as godsknowing good and evil, {poneros}.”

The serpent knew that succumbing to this temptation would kill man’s true spiritual link with God, so he told Eve she would “be as gods, knowing good and evil, implying that this shortcut to a truer knowledge of Good and a more intimate knowledge of God, was not available without the knowledge of evil, {poneros}. This lie forms the false foundation for the doctrine of the “immortal soul” that the human soul is synonymous with the spirit of God, because when the serpent told Eve she would not surely die, he was equating her life without God’s spirit after her fall, to her life with God’s spirit before the fall, telling her it would open her eyes to be as gods, knowing good and evil, [Romans 1:25]. This also removes the need to restore mankind via a spiritual new birth, and the need for redemption in Christ because according to the serpent, all humanity has the spark of the divine, and we are all “God’s children,” so our spiritual relationship is already living and intact. Here the enemy can substitute the counterfeit of his evil spirit realm in place of God’s holy spirit, like the “psychic gifts” of modern para-psychology vs. the manifestations of holy spirit; [1 Cor. 12 7-11] etc. The Serpent was tempting Eve to follow it’s example of “original sin” that corrupted the angels so he could bring destruction on mankind. Thus the adversary’s wicked false balances of a Static God were set upon these lies, upon a basis that God detests; [Prov. 11:1, 20:23]. “A false balance is abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight.”

Romans 1:25 Says men worship the creation more than the Creator thus turning the truth of God into a lie, because the man Christ Jesus [1 Tim. 2:5] is part of Creation and in Trinitarian dogma, the God-man is worshipped as Almighty God. The Trinity violates even the laws of physics because it is impossible for something to be both finite [human] and infinite God at the same time, and in the same relationship. This illustrates also that Trinity dogma is man-made because it is defeated by human logic and Science.

With this false doctrinal basis he could now transform his total dependence upon God as a parasite, into the illusory antithetical symbiotic relationship where each extreme- light/ darkness, order/chaos, good/evil, ostensibly required the other in order to exist. This is the false balance underlying the Stasis or a Static Greek God-concept, that inspired Jon’s comment that “we can’t understand or explain the Semitic concept of God’s Holiness with the Greek concept of God’s Perfection.” The adversary uses these false balances to make himself the creator of both Light and darkness which is exactly how most Christians perceive the true God today. This is built on the flawed understanding of [Isa. 45:5-7] which negates these false balances in vs. 5-6, since there is No God beside the Almighty;

Isa. 45:5-7 
I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

This is a great example of the [idiom of permission] because it is impossible for God to create darkness since God is Light, and darkness is the absence of Light, what God created as the Father of Lights was potential for darkness when He created Free Will both with Angels and Mankind.

Js. 1:17 Father of Lights

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

If man got anywhere near the spiritual purity of God’s unshielded light, like a laser it would melt us down, so Jesus came to us as the fullness of God that can be witnessed on the level of human senses, which is illustrated in the “Attributes of God” chart. This is why no man has ever seen God [Jn. 1:18] in His raw form of Light. In the previous segment, I proposed a spectrum of 60 octaves of electromagnetic light, but in the interim, on my Facebook Group-the Biblical Astronomy Fellowship, a wonderful believer-Rachael Rogers known to many of you, sent me some information that really blessed and excited me, that documents 49 Octaves of Light which fits much better with the pattern of Bible truths in so many areas. I’m so thankful for Believers like Rachael who share their insights in the BA fellowship forum, making a vital and living exchange of ideas, where all can contribute, because it certainly is much bigger than my efforts in this area, that will really make this category of study come alive. As we allow the Word to speak for itself, the greatest truths of Scripture will only be understood in the context of the body of Christ, not just by “lone ranger” individuals, because the infinite truths of the Creator are far too vast and multi-dimensional for any single person to fathom, on their own. So I’m blessed to provide one of many forums where people can share in a specialized learning fellowship dedicated to the study of Biblical Astronomy and related topics, and I’m excited to take this opportunity to invite all interested in sharing, as we welcome and are enthused to hear your input, feedback and contributions!

The first thing that God called back into the re-ordering of Creation in Genesis 1 was light, because any genuine works of His Hands in Creation must be a manifestation of the Father of Lights. In Gen. 1, we find whenever God spoke, something wonderful resulted. The Sound of His voice is antecedent to light which we can see in the following reference:

“And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. And God saw the Light, that it was good: and God divided the Light from the darkness.” The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of God’s Voice preceded Light. The info Rachael Rogers sent on the Oscillatory Frequency principle, rings true, since Sound is an Energy active on a lower Scale building towards light. This is an accurate way to grasp the Biblical principles of God’s Creation from a scientific viewpoint because based on this Oscillatory Frequency, Sound is Energy acting on a lower Scale, building towards light. As visible Light appears on the 49th Octave, it explains its Divine origin and relation; God is represented symbolically as a Circle of light going back to His Covenant with Noah [Gen. 9:12-17], the Number 7 being the perfect standard of God’s Creation. Since the Number 49 is the product of 7 X 7, it stands for each Circle of the spiral having been traversed 7 times as this beautiful Light Energy was preceded by Sound with its Seven Musical Notes, before Light was created, with its Seven Spectral Colors. This pattern in Creation has led to the idea that God’s Creation of the Cosmos consisted of traversing seven Circles.

The electromagnetic spectrum is generally divided into seven regions, in order of decreasing wavelength and increasing energy and frequency: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays.

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.” 2

In the book Jesus Christ is not God, regarding John 1:5, V.P. WW 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 point of view there is no way darkness could comprehend light since darkness is the absence of light. That which does not exist cannot overcome that which exists.  JCNG 2nd edition, p. 97

The 49th Octave of Visible Light

Prism of Light

On the 49th Octave of Visible Light, as the Oscillatory Frequency per Second jumps to the high mark of 562,949,953,421,- 312, the middle of the Spectrum of Colors has come into existence, the first Visible Light starting around 318 Trillion Oscillations per Second, with a faint Red Color. While the range of the ear for hearing is from the Fourth to the 15th Octave, a span of 11 or 12 Octaves, the eye can sense only 1 Octave—the 49th. As soon as the 50th is reached, with its 1,125,899,906,842,624 Oscillations, the faint Violet of the Spectrum vanishes and for Seven more Octaves, the potent, but invisible Ultra-Violet Range of Radiations is entered. Before going further, we will look into some of the properties of Oscillatory Frequencies and the conversion of Sound Energy into Light. It is interesting that the transition from the 49th Octave to the 50th reflects a vanishing point from visible light to the invisible UV portion of the spectrum, perhaps mirroring an entrance to the spiritual realms.

All forms of energy including matter are composed of waves or vibrations. All the wavelengths of the E-M spectrum are traveling at the speed of light, just at different frequencies, which depicts all Creation emanating from the Sound of God’s Voice. When we combine these spectrums of light and sound according to sacred time of Sabbaths of seven weeks, or years, unto the 50-year Jubilee, we find these patterns cropping up in key biblical prophecies. The graphic below depicts the Musical Spiral of Frequency, Color and Light on a spiral ordered to the Fibonnacci Numbers. This illustrates not only the Creator’s fingerprint on Nature, but also the Voiceprint of the Father of Lights.

The Spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion

In the closing segment of his “One God Seminar,” Jon Nessle taught on Isa. 11:1-2. This verse represents a summary of the OT manifestations paired according to this biblical structure of the spirit [H7307 ruach] of Jehovah- God in relationship to His creation, breath of life, a region of the sky-star. The repetition ofSpirit” at the start of these OT categories is the figure anaphora, while the ”ands” pairing these manifestations are the figure “polysyndeton,” emphasizing each of these categories.

Spectro-Chrome Prismatic Light

As God’s Spirit was manifest in the world [Isa. 11:1-2, I Cor. 12:7-11] so the light of God in its various forms are discernible in the senses realm. As Jon Nessle charted and paired these Old Testament manifestations in this seminar, he cited Biblical examples of Men of God that best reflected spiritual strengths in these areas of ministry. I noted @ the San Pedro Research Symposium that these manifestations matched well with aStar of David” geometric pattern in 2015, also evident in the info sent by Rachael Rogers this month, as seen above. This depicts the E-M and visible light spectrum illustrating the Principle of “The Spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion,” that many of us learned in another ministry.

spirit; shall rest: [H5117 ruach-nuach] dwells, stays, gives comfort, quiet, which implies the peaceful mental framework which is required to receive the spirit into manifestation, emphasized by these rhyming words in Hebrew. [Isa. 26:3, Col. 3:10ff]

A. Spirit of Wisdom [H2451 chokmah] Skillful, wit. Word of Wisdom.
and: the pairing of revelation pertaining to the body-soul category, with the spiritual category.

B. Spirit of Understanding [H Biynah] Perfect knowledge and understanding. Discerning of Spirits.

C. Spirit of Counsel [H6098 etsah] prudent advice, plan, purpose, Blueprints. {pathos-healing}
and: Pairing of Healing with miracles as they are grouped in the Impartation manifestations in NT [I Cor. 14.]
D. Might [H1369 geburah] from H1368: force, valor, mastery, victory. Miracles– mighty acts of power and strength. Signs and wonders.

E. Spirit of Knowledge [H1847 daath] cunning from beyond the senses, Word of Knowledge.
and: the pairing of the word of wisdom-application of WOK with believing-MOB, where revelation is acted upon resulting in the impossible coming to pass.

Similar to the phrase, “God is love,” “God is light” also is a Biblical metaphor. But because it is stated this way, “God IS light” also is a transcendent trait.  The light spoken of here as Musical Spiral of Frequency, Color and Light is a spiral ordered to the Fibonnacci Numbers. This is one of many in-depth categories of the Father of Lights, in creation. As we see in the Four Kingdoms of Life, the Plant, [Matt. 6:28-30, 13:32] Animal, Human [Mk. 4:8, Lk. 1:80, 2:40, 1 Pet. 2:2] and Spirit Kingdoms, [Acts 6:7, 7:17, 12:24, 19:20,
1 Cor. 3:6-7, 2 Cor. 9:8-10, 10:15, Eph. 2:21, 4:15, Col. 1:10, 2:19, 2 Pet. 3:18], all exhibit the principles of algorithmic growth life conforming to the Fibonacci Number series. See my related blog;

The Four Kingdoms of Life-Plant Kingdom

Sunflowers show complex Fibonacci sequences

The Fibonacci spiraling shapes in cauliflower, artichoke, and sunflower florets (above) share a remarkable feature: The numbers of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals are consecutive Fibonacci numbers—the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8… , so each digit is the sum of the last two. What’s more, those spirals pack florets as tight as can be, maximizing their ability to gather sunlight for the plant. But how do plants like sunflowers create such perfect floret arrangements, and what does it have to do with Fibonacci numbers? A plant hormone called auxin, which spurs the growth of leaves, flowers, and other plant organs, is the key: Florets grow where auxin flows. Using a mathematical model that describes how auxin and certain proteins interact to transport each other around inside plants, researchers could predict where the hormone would accumulate. Simulations of that model reproduced patterns exactly matching real “Fibonacci spirals” in sunflowers, as reported this month in Physical Review Letters. Based on their results, the researchers suggest that such patterns might be more universal in nature than previously thought… [ScienceShot: Sunflowers Do the Math By Nathan Collins 

These geometric patterns ruled by Fibonacci Series are seen consistently across all aspects of the Natural world. In the graphic below we see an image reproduced from a “Cymascope” which is an instrument that makes sound or music visible, generating detailed 3D impressions of sound or music vibrations. The studies allowed by this tech of the visual geometry of sounds shows a symmetry that is invariant from the largest structures of spiral galaxies to the smallest scales of quantum reality. The image below is the as seen above in the pattern of sunflower florets with numbers of clockwise and counterclockwise spirals as consecutive Fibonacci numbers. Another intriguing element found in this image of the 528 Hz frequency sound produces a 360 degree circle uniquely containing 36 nodes: that mirrors the structure of the heavens, with 12 signs of the Mazzaroth each with 3 decans, yielding 36 signs in all. This also conforms to the Voice of God as he spoke the heavens into existence on the 4th day of Creation; [Gen. 1:14-19]. Once again we see the entrance of God’s Word bringing light in the structure of the celestial gospel, as God’s Word was written in the heavens before it was ever written in the OT.

With CymaScope images of the visual geometry of sounds, we see that they include many of the mathematical constants of the universe, including phi, sometimes known as the ‘golden mean’. This ratio is approximately 1 to 1.618 and it is found in all living things, thus depicting the link between Sound of God’s Voice and the life He spoke into being. If we examine the D.N.A molecule, we see that it appears as a 10-fold form, over which can be drawn a pentagon, depicting  that DNA, the key to life, contains again the phi ratio.

This sacred pattern is also witnessed in the seven-branched Menorah as we find in Exodus.

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: *H216-maor] 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 celestial lights of the Sun and Moon in Gen. 1:16. Thus we have a perfect relation between the purpose of the individual celestial lights and the individual lamps of the candlestick, 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 Father of Lights.

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.

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.”

James Strong’s geometric synopsis of this verse states:
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.”8 [emphasis mine]

Plate 6. The Hebrew Menorah

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, as they orbit around it. We find not only the order of the solar system reflected here but also that of the ecliptic with 12 Constellations. This is evident in the semi-circular pattern based on the pi ratio. By expanding on Strong’s analysis of the Menorah this will come 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 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 in the mathematical context of  the base 60 standard, a primary trait of the Creator’s celestial order. The symbolism of the candle-stick 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 pillars: Jachin 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 utilized by Noah. But 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 2nd century BC.

We find other aspects of this celestial symbolism in the Book of Revelation.

We can find evidence of this symbolism revealed in detail in the Book of Revelation, where all these things are fulfilled. Here John’s vision of the future in the Revelation Administration begins:

Revelation 1:10-20

10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. 19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Verses 12-16 above relate the description of the “Son of Man” as the one in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, shining as the Sun in his strength, [v.16]. This identifies the Sun, personified as Christ, [Mal. 4:2] holding seven stars, shining in the center of the seven branches of the candlestick. These seven celestial luminaries are associated with the angels of the seven churches in Rev. 1:20. Here God’s Word draws a direct comparison, first, between the Sun in the center of the Candlestick, embodied in Christ. This sets the context wherein we can understand the symbolism of the other branches of the Menorah. Secondly, the angels of the seven churches are embodied in Seven Stars held in Christ’s right hand.

 This gives us a glimpse of a seven-fold Order of Angelic Realms in Christ’s right hand, that mirrors His seven-fold Lordship over the Church of his spiritual Body, [Eph. 6:12]

So tonight we have seen some of the magnificent glory of the Father of Lights, not from a static but very dynamic Heavenly Father. We can see that our full fellowship with God thru Christ is spiritual, yet he is concerned with every aspect of our soul-life, not an immortal soul! We have scouted the tempter’s game-plan vs. Eve and made strides to undermine the Greek-inspired ontological philosophies of the “perfection infection,” to avoid these pitfalls in order to obliterate this “theo-illogical” category of study, knowing that God is light which was preceded by the Voice of the Almighty, and darkness is the absence of lite. We have seen a clearer view of the 49 Octaves of Light, and not only that, but how the spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion, and how these mathematical and geometric principles form the foundation of the 4 Kingdoms of Life in Creation. Finally, we have seen how these multiple patterns of seven are found in the Menorah symbolizing a sevenfold order of angels mirrored in the spiritual body of the Church of Christ.

The awesome beauty of God’s Kingdom in Christ, is truly something to behold, understand and walk in boldness!

God Bless!!

New Year Lunar Eclipses of January 2019 and Jupiter-Venus Unions

As the heavens open with a celestial fireworks show for the New Year of 2019, there is a notable lunar theme in the air! In this first blog of 2019, we are highlighting two lunar eclipses in the first 3 weeks of 2019, including a Partial Lunar eclipse Jan. 5-6, and a Super Blood Moon on Jan 21st. This is part of a Super Moon series in 2018-19. A Super-Moon takes place when the Moon reaches peak fullness during its closest approach to Earth. Super-Moons appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal. Super-Moons can occur multiple times yearly, as we are seeing with the current Super-Moon Triad.

Image result for 2019 new years fireworks images

With two Lunar Eclipses in January, on the 6th and 21st, the final lunar sign in this Super-Moon series pulls a trifecta, also being a Total Lunar Eclipse, as a rare Super-Blood Moon.

A most notable recent Super-Blood Moon happened back in Sept. 2015 concluding the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad, with the 1st known Super Blood Moon on a Hebrew feast. This Blood Moon Tetrad wrapped up with a Super Blood Moon on Tabernacles Feast, Sept. 28, 2015.

The Jan. 31st, 2018 Blood Moon was also be visible in Israel as the moon in rising. It is the first of 3 consecutive Blood Moons visible in Israel. The 2nd occured on July 27/28, 2018 and the 3rd Jan. 20-21, 2019. This Blood Moon lunar triple of 2018-2019 follows 7 years after the lunar triple of  2010-2011 Blood Moons also visible in Israel. As we find in Fig. 1 below, these two sets of Blood Moon Lunar triples framed the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad, marking Hebrew Feast and holy days in 2014-15.

Figure 1. Lunar Triads and Solar Eclipses framing the Blood Moon Tetrad  2

The 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad was centered between the saddest days on the Hebrew Calendar, the days of Av marked by two lunar triples framing this Tetrad between 2010-11 and 2018-19. These Lunar triples or triads are Blood Moon lunar eclipses that do not fall on Hebrew Feast or holy days, bracketing the Blood Moon Tetrad that did. These lunar triples recall the Jerusalem Temple being destroyed on two key occasions in history, during Hebrew Sabbath years of 586-587 BC and 69-70 AD. The Jubilee calendar also marks 27-28 AD as a Jubilee year, denoting the year Jesus opened his ministry to Israel, as seen in [Isa. 61:1ff & Lk. 4:18-19].


The 2010-2011 Lunar triple
 dates prior to the Blood Moon Tetrad and Eclipses of 2016 are seen below:

12/21/2010
6/15/2011
12/10/2011

The 2018-2019 Lunar triple dates after the Blood Moon Tetrad and eclipses of 2016 are seen below:

1/31/2018
7/27/2018
1/21/2019

All the solar eclipses on either side of the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad are spaced equi-distant from the center of the Lunar Tetrad. For example, we find this with two solar eclipses closest to the center of the Blood Moon Tetrad, Oct. 23, 2014, and Mar. 20, 2015, are the same distance on either side of the center date [Jan. 5, 2015] of the Lunar Tetrad. The dates for the Partial Solar Eclipses before the Blood Moon Tetrad are listed below:

The Partial Solar Eclipse dates before the Blood Moon tetrad:

1/4/2011
6/1/2011
7/1/2011
11/25/2011

Partial Solar Eclipse Dates with the Second Lunar Triple:

2/15/2018
7/13/2018
8/11/2018
1/5-6/2019

It is interesting that the mid-point date Jan. 5, 2015, of this Blood Moon Tetrad is almost exactly 4 years to the day of the 4th Partial Solar Eclipse on Jan. 5-6 2019, during New Years week 2019. This Jan. 5-6 Partial Solar Eclipse Eclipse is the 58th eclipse in the Solar Saros Series 122. During the first week in January, we will see the Moon by passing Jupiter and Venus in Ophiuchus leading up to its Jan. 5-6 Partial Solar Eclipse. As it reaches the Super-Blood Moon on Jan. 21stEclipse totality will last 63 minutes.

Figure 2. The Moon passing by Jupiter and Venus New Years week Jan. 2019.

Generally, a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter happens once a year. But this year, in 2019, Venus and Jupiter will not only rendezvous the day after the Super-Blood Moon, on Jan. 22nd as seen in Fig. 3 below, but also for a 2nd notable conjunction in 2019 on the evening of November 24th, 2019.

Figure 3. Jupiter-Venus union aligned with Antares the Scorpion’s Heart Jan. 22nd, 2019.

There has been notable activity with the unions of Jupiter-Venus both at the birth of Christ and again linked to the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad, two years ahead of the Sept. 23rd, 2017 Rev. 12 sign.

The following dates, also show elements of the Celestial Sphinx in the Regulus unions in Leo, while the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions took place in Virgo in 2016-2017:

July 30th, 2016 Mercury-Regulus Conjunction
Aug. 5th, 2016 Venus-Regulus Conjunction
Aug. 26-27th, 2016 Jupiter-Venus conjunction [Jupiter enters Virgo]
Feb. 26th, 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction
Sept. 23rd, 2017 [Virgo clothed 
with the Sun/Moon @ feet]-Rev. 12:1-2 
Nov. 13th, 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction

The two brightest planets –Venus and Jupiter –teamed up to provide the closest planetary conjunction of 2014, which had been the closest Venus- Jupiter conjunction during the six Lunar Eclipses of 2014-2016, until August 27, 2016, when Jupiter entered Virgo to be eventually“birthed” in 2017. This Venus-Jupiter union on August 27, saw these two planets three times closer than during their 2015 union when they were separated by only 1/3 of a degree.

With this celestial context in mind it lends a deeper meaning for the Venus-Jupiter conjunctions of 2019. The upcoming morning conjunction on January 22, 2019, has very favorable sighting conditions, because Venus is near its maximum distance from the sun. The stellar backdrop for the two Jupiter-Venus unions in 2019 is Ophiuchus/Scorpius. We find Jupiter in retrograde in 2019 near the foot of Ophiuchus that was bruised by the Scorpion’s sting, [Gen. 3:14-15] depicting the spiritual conflict between Satan and Christ.

Figure 4. Jupiter in Ophiuchus’ foot near the star Saiph.


Jupiter appears in front of the stars of Ophiuchus’ foot, during its 2018-2019 appearance. (Starry Night Pro)

Ophiuchus is identified with Christ in the triple conjunction of Saturn with the star in the serpent-holder’s left foot, called Saiph, meaning “bruised.” This of course is linked to the first prophecy of the promised seed in Gen. 3:14-15.

Saturn began its retrograde in Ophiuchus March 26th, then Saturn entered Sagittarius for 84 days prior to returning to Ophiuchus May 18th, 2017. Around August 21st, 2017 Saturn reached its Western stationary point North of the star Theta Ophiuchi, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse across America. Saturn’s retrograde ended a week later on August 28th, 2017. After returning to its regular motion, Saturn completed its 3rd union with Saiph on Sept. 6th, 2017, as Mercury was in retrograde, circling Mars and Regulus in conjunction in Leo, on Sept. 4th. Saturn remained in Ophiuchus till November 18th, 2017, before heading back into Sagittarius.

Figure 5. Jupiter in retrograde in 2018-201 with Venus conjunctions

This sequence of the triple union of Saturn with the star Saiph in 2017 was a precursor of Jupiter’s retrograde motion also leading to the same bruised foot of Ophiuchus in 2018-19. But there is another element of these Jupiter-Venus unions of 2019 that directly links these celestial events, that being the heart of the Scorpion the Red Star Antares. Antares means “the wounding” as a description of the temporary wound the adversary inflicted on Christ at the Cross, as the very death that Christ conquered in defeating the enemy eternally, [Heb. 2:14].

Prior and during the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions of 2019, we find three unions of these planets with Antares in 2018-19.

1. December 23rd, 2018; Jupiter-Antares conjunction.
2. January 15th 2019; Venus-Antares conjunction.
3. November 9th, 2019; Venus-Antares conjunction.

Here we see the King Planet Jupiter and Venus the bright and Morning Star which embody different aspects of the Lord Jesus Christ effectively crushing the Head/Heart of the Serpent/ Scorpion leading up to the final death blow our Lord will execute in this titanic struggle of the Ages.

Figure 6.  Mercury, Jupiter, and Antares Dec. 21st 2018

The preceding separate triple unions of Jupiter and Saturn are a prelude to the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunction in 2020.We find secondary elements of this theme just prior to the December 23rd, 2018 Jupiter-Antares conjunction, because on December 21st Jupiter and Mercury-Gabriel are less than a degree apart. Mercury, Jupiter, and Antares are nearly aligned in a 6° range, as seen in Fig. 6 above. Mercury-Gabriel heralds the coming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction as Dec. 21st marks two years until their Great Conjunction, when they appear only 0.1° apart! 7 Of course it was their triple union in 7 BC as part of the Celestial Prelude that helped the Magi recognize the traits of Jupiter as the Bethlehem Star bringing them to the birth of Christ.

What a great way to wrap up the 2018 Holiday Season and kick off the New Year!!

God Bless!!

Comments Off on New Year Lunar Eclipses of January 2019 and Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions

Birth of Jesus Christ

Biblical Astronomy of the Luni-solar eclipse Tetrad marking the Birth of Christ

The subject of this blog picks up from observations in our previous blog post in Part 1 of this study, concerning a triad of lunar eclipses on Hebrew Holy days in 5 BC, reflected in the chart below. This study will focus on the Total Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse of March 13th, 4 BC, which has long been erroneously held as the Eclipse marking Herod’s death. It was Dr. Ernest Martin who removed all doubt that this eclipse was the one Josephus said coincided with the death of Herod, and one of the main reasons was that in the year of this eclipse, it fell on Adar 15 on the Hebrew Calendar. From the time of Queen Esther [Esther 9:1-32] the 14th and 15th of Adar were set aside as festival days of Purim, [Esther 9:17-18], that celebrated the death of Haman with his family, and the overthrowing of his evil plot to destroy Israel. Although Purim was not one of the 3 main feasts that required the men of Israel to be in Jerusalem, Purim is a key feast for other reasons. More on this later.

Image result for Purim historical images

In March, 5 BC, concurrent with the Blood Moon and according to some records again in April4 BC, a Comet with no tail, or a Nova, appeared first in Capricorn, the sign of Christ the coming Sacrifice, and later in Aquila the Eagle, one of Capricorn’s 3 decans and enemy of the Serpent. The Pisces conjunctions of 7/6 BC would have directed the Magi’s attention to Jerusalem, but this Nova in Capricorn 2 years later, during the Passover and Unleavened Bread  feasts marked by Blood Moons, may also have confirmed for the Magi the General Sign of the Celestial Prelude. E.W. Bullinger references the popular belief regarding this general sign that was visible in and before the first century: “a traditional prophecy well known in the East, carefully preserved and handed down, that a new star would appear in this sign [Coma] when he whom it foretold, would be born.” 1

The activity in Figure 1 below sets the signs of 7-4 BC, ahead of the signs that began the following year marking the birth of Christ. Previously our focus mainly concerned the triple planetary union of Jupiter-Saturn in 7 BC, compared with the triple planetary Conjunction of Jupiter and Regulus 4 years later. In this study our focus is dialed into the intervening period of celestial signs in 5-4 BC, providing more detail leading to the birth of Christ. Part 1 of this study revealed these Blood Moons took place on the Spring and Fall feasts of the Hebrew Calendar, and the March 23rd Blood Moon Total Lunar eclipse fell on the evening of Passover on March 22nd-23rd starting the week of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Also in the Fall of that year, a 2nd Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, opened the week of Tabernacle Feast, Sept. 15th. This was preceded by a Partial Solar Eclipse the evening of Sept. 1st that started the Feast of Trumpets on the 2nd of September, giving us a triad of Luni-Solar Eclipses on Hebrew Feast and holy days in 5 BC, also marked by Nova Capricornus, a notable set of Celestial Pageantry leading to Christ’s birth to be sure.

When we include the March 13th Blood Moon Total Lunar eclipse on Purim, to the eclipses of the previous year, we find a Tetrad of luni-solar eclipses on Hebrew Feast days leading to the birth of Christ. To my knowledge there has not been an Eclipse Tetrad linked with the birth of Christ previously, although there was a Blood Moon Tetrad linked with Christ’s Crucifixion in 32-33 AD. This crucifixion date would make Jesus 36+ years old instead of entering his 30th year to start his ministry, as scripture tells us. Once we adhere to the Jan. 9-10, 1 BC date for the eclipse marking Herod’s death, our crucifixion date in April, 28 AD is a precise fit with Christ opening his ministry over a year earlier in 27 AD. This reflects the “acceptable year of the Lord” as Jesus prophesied, [Lk. 4:19-22] as opposed to the 3 year ministry held by religious tradition. The lunar eclipse on Purim was also a potential factor in the Eclipse Tetrad of 2016.

What was unique about the Jubilee Year of 2016 is that either Purim or Passover fell on March 23rd, depending on if Adar 2 was included or not. This is the most recent time that a Lunar Eclipse could have occurred on Purim, although as a Penumbral lunar eclipse, the entire lunar surface was not eclipsed. It fell 120 days after the Super Blood Moon of Sept. 28, 2015. Specifically, Purim began Wednesday evening on the Hebrew Calendar, March 23, 2016 continuing through Thursday night, March 24th. It was also  the first full Moon after the Spring Equinox. We have pointed out in previous blogs how this Eclipse Tetrad with a Purim Eclipse in 2016 matched exactly with the tetrad of luni-solar eclipses marking the Roman’s destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 AD, seen below.

As in the eclipse tetrad leading to the birth of Christ in 3 BC, there was not only a Partial Lunar Eclipse on Purim, March 4th, 71 AD, but also a Rev. 12 sign in both cases. In Fig.2 we can see the Rev. 12 sign in Virgo, marking the birth of Christ.

 The following summary from our Biblical Blood Moon Calendar post, shows the signs marking the 70 AD Roman’s Temple Destruction as Jesus Prophesied. It is fitting that Jesus prophesied about the 70′ Temple Destruction in [Matt. 24:2], marked by this Luni-solar eclipse tetrad, while another eclipse tetrad is found leading to his hirth. This provides another example of the Celestial Gospel supporting and confirming God’s written and incarnate Word.

Partial Lunar       Purim               3/4/71

 

 A comparison of Solar and Lunar signs between 70 AD and 2016 is truly remarkable! Also, the Purim lunar eclipse in 71′  was the last Lunar Eclipse on Purim we can find in the intervening period, after 4 BC, leading to the birth of Christ. The intriguing parallel here is that these Solar and Lunar signs marked the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70′, but in the 2016 tetrad we are looking for the return of a Third Jerusalem Temple as the next logical step to fulfill Biblical Prophecy following up to Israel’s reclamation of Jerusalem marked by the 1967-68′ Blood Moon Tetrad, in the 6-day War with Egypt. Thus we see the importance of these Solar and Lunar Eclipses in 5-4 BC and 2016 as they align with the only other Soli-lunar eclipses on Hebrew Feasts that include a Purim Eclipse over the last 2000 years! We must also be mindful that the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15 and the 2016 eclipse tetrad lead the way to the replay of the Rev. 12 sign on Sept. 23rd of 2017. this leads to three pairings of eclipse tetrads including Purim eclipses, leading to 3 separate Rev. 12 signs in history!

A Penumbral Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse on the Feast of Purim, taking place during a Hebrew Jubilee Year, should also  get our attention for a number of reasons.

One can not help, but be struck by the unique and rare occurrence of the 2014-15 Eclipse Tetrad of four Blood Moons during the Shemitah of Shemitah’sand now the Jubilee comes with yet another Lunar eclipse on Purim, forming a Quintet of lunar eclipses on Hebrew Holidays from 2014-2016. The 70 AD destruction of the Jerusalem Temple marked the removal of God from His Temple in stages, and the dispersion of the Jews among the Gentile Nations. This 2016 Lunar Eclipse on Purim, may testify as another indicator towards the appearance a New Temple on the Mount, as part of the coming treaty allowing modern Israel the Restoration of Temple sacrifices in Jerusalem, previously marked by an Eclipse Tetrad in 69-71 AD, when those sacrifices were last enacted, [Dan. 9:24-27].

The 69-70 AD solar and lunar eclipses marking the Roman’s destruction of the Temple are reflected in the solar and lunar eclipses of 2016, leading to the 2017 rewind of the Great Wonder of Rev. 12:1-2. Amazingly, another version of this Rev. 12 celestial wonder occurred on August 27th, in 70 AD, in between the 4/14/70 Passover Lunar Eclipse, and the 9/23/70 Rosh Hashanah Solar Eclipse!

Figure 5. The Rev. 12 sign on August 27th, 70 AD: With a Jupiter-Venus union. 4

In this version of the Rev. 12 sign, the woman-Virgo has a crown of 12 stars, with Jupiter and Venus in such close union they appear to merge into one star just as they did in 2 BC, except this time in the lower rear paw of Leo. The Sun is clothing Virgo and the Moon near her feet. The planets Jupiter and Venus are also aligned with Mercury-Gabriel and the King Star Regulus in Leo.  What is extraordinary with this version of the Rev. 12 Sign is that it occurs in the center of the luni-solar eclipse tetrad on Hebrew Feast and holy days marking the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 AD.

Purim is a story of both deliverance and a sudden destructionPurim is a Hebrew holiday and has been incorporated much like Hanukkah into the list of Feasts that have been added to the 7 major Feasts of Jehovah. 

The meaning of the Feast of Purim is disclosed only in the Bible’s book of Esther. The beginning of the Book of Esther starts off with a 6-month feast of the King. As Purim amazingly aligns with a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, when we consider the context of Hebrew Calendar and the Eclipse series of 2014-2016  what is the message we can glean from these Purim lunar eclipses, linking the Rev. 12 signs at the birth and potential return of Christ? The record of the history and origin of the Purim Feast in the Book of Esther, is significant today for a number of reasons. Even as the evil Haman was bent on his genocidal plan against Israel in the ancient Persian Empire, so today there is a group of Islamic and world powers conspiring to “wipe Israel off the map.” Purim is prophetic in relation to the deliverance of God’s People from those enemies that seek to destroy the heritage of the Almighty, and Redeemer’s bl0od-line. The Purim feast also celebrates the death of Haman, an Amalekite from the tribe of Edom and his 10 sons [Esth. 3:10, 9:24].

Biblical record of Esther not only shows the history of the Feast of Purim, but also reveals elements of how the Heavenly Father saved His people, exhibiting His undying Love and protection of IsraelGod Saved His people not only so they could enjoy His blessing on their lives, but also so He could return them to the Promised Land of Israel and their Holy city-Jerusalem. We can see this long-standing purpose of God because after nearly 2000 years of being dispersed among the Gentile Nations, in 1948-50 Israel was reformed as a nation-state, also marked by a Blood Moon Tetrad, and the Jews have been returning to their homeland ever since. There is also another overriding purpose found in Esther, and that is the preservation of the Christ-line. Numerous times in history the enemy attempted to wipe the Hebrews from the face of the Earth as he knew they would bear man’s Redeemer. The serpent usually executes these purges through his evil earthly spiritual seed, of which Haman the Edomite was a prime candidate. During the birth of Moses, the Egyptians killed the male Hebrew infants for this purpose. During the time of Christ’s birth, Herod who also descended from Edomite ancestry, had the male infants murdered around Bethlehem, for the same reason.

This is one of the reasons why we have noted the link between lunar eclipses and the activity of the serpent’s seed in history and mythology. The link here seems to relate to the idea that the adversary is parasitic in nature, and the Moon as the lesser light ruling the night, does not generate its own light, but only reflects the sunlight or else periodically eclipses it. It seems while the Moon occults the Sun-light the enemy is encouraged to carry out its purposes contrary to the true God, as witnessed above.

The graphic below shows an astronomical disc from Apian’s Astronomicum Ceasareum (1540 AD). It illustrates the ascending and descending lunar Nodes (dragon’s head & tail), in calendrical calculation of solar and lunar eclipses.

calculation of the solar and lunar eclipse

Lunar eclipses are a result of the activities of the Moon in monthly ascending and descending nodes,  that always lie opposite one another on the eclipticEclipses coincide with the Moon’s orbit intersecting the ecliptic. Solar and Lunar eclipses only occur when the Full or New Moon is within a six degree range of the lunar Node. The line connecting these nodes, the two “dragon points” where the Moon crosses the ecliptic, is called the “Line of Nodes.” The motion of this mythic line generates the 18.618-year eclipse cycle, but the Moon does not return to the same spot in the sky until it has gone through three of these cycles, totaling just under 56 years. This is called “precession of the nodes.”6 The golden section influence or phi ratio math seems apparent here, as in the saros, because during the 18.618-year eclipse cycle, the Line of Nodes recedes in the “precession of the nodes“19.618 days each year. The ancients conceived of the lunar nodes as a large celestial dragon. An apt example of this is found in old Arabian astronomy, where the two aspects of the Draconic Month were known as the Head and Tail of the Dragon.

As we see the efforts of Haman to exterminate the nation of Israel along these lines. The setting for Esther was ancient Persia-modern-day Iran. Even as Daniel who also served under this 2nd world Empire following Babylon from their capital city of Susa, Queen Esther decided to stand up for the nation of Israel against Haman’s evil plot, she received favor from her King and Husband Xerxes I. Esther enjoyed the favor of the King’s Sceptre when she risked her life by entering the conference of the King. It is interesting that; Biblically “a Sceptre can also be symbolic of a person!” In Numbers, we read;

(Numbers 24:17)”I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near: a star shall come out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of Seth.”

That Sceptre embodied the prophesied return of the Promised Seed, who came first over 1,900 years ago, and by his sacrifice provided redemption for all mankind. All who believe in Him, and follow Him, have a pathway back to God, who alone is able to deliver them from blood-thirsty hatred of those today, like Haman seeking the genocide of Israel. Our website study on the General Sign of the Celestial Prelude covers the significance of this Numbers 24 record regarding the Sceptre, in the context of the heavenly signs surrounding the birth of ChristThe heavenly birth signs for Christ as seen in Rev. 12, appeared again in 2017, with a prominent role for Jupiter, the King Planet and Royal Sceptre of the King of Kings.

For Messianic Jews and modern day Christians, we anticipate with great hope our embodiment in the spiritual Church of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as we partake in the sceptre of his righteous authority and everlasting victory over the evil darkness of this world.

A Most Joyous Holiday Season for 2018 to all my readers…

God Bless!
