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

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

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

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

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

Sunflowers show complex Fibonacci sequences

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

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

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

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

Each cycle of the DNA molecule measures 34 angstoms long by 21 angstroms wide. 21 and 34 are consecutive
Fibonacci numbers. As the series increases the ratio of 34/21 is a closer approximation of phi, [1.618…] since it is further into the series progression than the previous examples of 3 and 5Jean-claude Perez suggested there is a strong link between DNA and golden ratio in 1991,[1] then later in 1997 in his book l’ADN décrypté[2]. His work shows the relative proportions of nucleotides within coding DNA sequences like genes or RNA strings are governed by specific Fibonacci and Lucas number sets. This discovery was validated particularly on all known HIV and SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus) retroviruses, whole genomes with Professor Luc Montagnier (the discoverer of HIV virus) who called the discovery a “DNA supracode” [1].

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spectro-Chrome Prismatic Light

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

  Fearless: A Pentecost Reflection – God In All Things                                                                                         

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Angel delivering Paul from Prison

ANGELS IN THE BIBLE

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

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

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

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

Phillip the Evangelist and the Ethiopian Eunuch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DNA spiral as a Golden Section

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

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

B-DNA has spirals in phi proportions

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

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

Insight on B-DNA proportions contributed by Melih Yazici.

The DNA cross-section is based on Phi

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



Top view of DNA molecule

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

Pentagons are based on phi, the golden ratio

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Figure 1. Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis.


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

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

Job 38:31-33

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Figure 5. Draco and Cepheus at the North Pole.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Figure 8. The Pleiades Star Cluster

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Two Brass Pillars Jachin and Boaz

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Isa. 19:19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, He will send them a savior and defender, and he will
will rescue them.

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

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

God Bless!

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

Birth of Jesus Christ

Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ

Luke 11:29-30
29 
And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. 
30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

The Presence of Jesus Christ 2000 years ago, was a sign to that generation that fulfilled all the Messianic OT Prophecies, including the Gospel in the Stars, in agreement with God’s Word. Jesus embodied the eternal purpose and God’s Plan of the Ages, to redeem mankind, which is exactly the story related in the Gospel of the Stars, as a precursor to the Scriptural record. Thus, as we take a unified view of the various categories of Heavenly Signs, we are much better served as opposed to a segregated view of these categories, as signs unto themselves. In this way we are not seeking after individual signs, but are aware of them as a general category, placing them in a proper biblical context to glean their meaning and message.

As we can see from the example above, not all Biblical “signs” are astronomical in nature, but that does not mean there is no astronomical connotation that could exist for a biblical sign, as we find above. The Hebrew word in Strong’s [H226] means a “sign, token, badge, standard, monument, warning, omen, symbol, miracle or proof.”1 In Gen. 9:12-17 it indicates God’s Promise in the Rainbow after Noah’s Flood. Also as His Covenant was confirmed by circumcision, [Gen. 17:11, Rom. 4:11]. The Great Pyramid was also a prophetic sign of Jesus Christ, [Isa. 19: 19-20]. There are astronomical signs; of various types, [2 Kings 20:8-9]. As we see other types of Biblical signs above, we find a strong biblical basis for various types of signs designed to get our attention. According to a Lexical Aid to the OT, This word can refer to anything showing or confirming a past, present or future event. 2  Thus, whenever these events are confirmed by signs from the Hand of God, it demands our full attention!

This blog is third in a series of rebuttals against the critique of Frances Rolleston’s work of The Mazzaroth, by Dr. Danny Faulkner, who has categorized heavenly signs on his own, naming 4 types of signs listed below.

First, Faulkner recognizes what we would call a “sign of the times” as Jesus taught in his parable of Matt. 16:1-4. The idea that this is a specific type of Parable where Jesus taught spiritual truths from natural scientific phenomena is noteworthy. This illustrates how the Creator intelligently designed His systems in Creation, to depict His Almighty omnipotence and wisdom. Second, as Psalm 8Psalm 19, and Romans 1:18–20 tell us, God’s existence is revealed through the heavens, constituting a category of Celestial Sign. This can also reveal God’s purposes in His Creation, as we see with His plan to redeem mankind through His only begotten Son, not only as the main theme of the Gospel in the Stars, but also God’s Word. Third, the star that led the Magi to the infant Jesus (Matthew 2:1–29–10) was undoubtedly a sign from heaven. This illustrates how the Almighty utilized specific celestial signs to mark the birth of Christ, His only begotten Son, to carry out the primary purpose of His plan and goal to redeem mankind. Fourth, there will be signs in heaven that reveal God’s wrath (Isa. 13:9–13Joel 2:30–31Matt. 24:29–31Mark 13:24–27Luke 21:25–28Revelation 6:12–17). 3 Under this category heading Faulkner includes signs of the end times and the Return of Christ, but there are also signs like Blood Moons which Faulkner lumps together here in [Joel 2:30-31] above, that are not always indicators of God’s wrath. You can also include Meteor Showers, one of which played a notable role in the signs around the birth of Christ. Thus, in these categories we have at least six types of possible signs in heaven and heavenly bodies that conform to the God-ordained purpose for them. We have classified another dozen types of signs that are referenced below. In the face of how these categories of Celestial Signs work together with the Gospel in the Stars, to fulfill God’s primary purpose, Faulkner succumbs to the blindness of his segregated view of these categories of heavenly signs by saying; “With no clear biblical support for these signs being the Gospel in the stars, it is pure conjecture that Genesis 1:14 requires that there be a Gospel in the Stars.” 4 Genesis 1:14 does notrequire a Gospel in the Stars” but by the nature of the story related by the 12 constellations with their decans, this record in God’s Word attests to a strong foundation for the Celestial Gospel, supported by Biblical Heavenly signs.

A Recent Blood Moon over Jerusalem.

Regarding the Star of Bethlehem, Faulkner states; “If, as most scholars think, the Magi were Persian, they likely had read Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks and hence knew that the time of the Messiah’s arrival was nigh. In fact, the Magi were not the only people who were expecting the Messiah at that time, for many Hebrews were looking for the Messiah as well. We do not know what the star that the Magi saw was, but supporters of the gospel in the stars want us to assume that it must have had something to do with the gospel in the stars. This is all a bit muddled though, because many supporters of the gospel in the stars believe in some astronomical event, such as an unusual planetary conjunction was the star. If that sort of thing was the star, then did the Magi really require the gospel in the stars? 5

Faulkner does not seem to think that a Gospel in the Stars is biblically “required,” so he proposes a number of scenarios to cast doubt on its validity. Proponents of the Celestial Gospel however, recognize the key role that the Stars fulfill in support of God’s witness to mankind, not only of God’s existence, but also as Creator. At least Faulkner is forthright enough to admit that he does not know what the star seen by the Magi was. However, as we have advocated and documented since the 1980’s, in our study of the signs marking Christ’s Birth, it becomes apparent that Jupiter was the planet that the Magi referred to as “his Star” in Matthew 2:2. The Magi had noted the triple union of signs in 7-6 BC, involving Jupiter and Saturn, that provided them a blueprint for the actual signs marking Christ’s birth, starting in 3 BC. An early sign in August of 3 BC motivated them to begin their caravan to Jerusalem. Both of these aspects of the General and Specific celestial signs marking the birth of Christ are apparent in the study on “The Stars Over Bethlehem, which provides further details of what the Magi observed in the skies overhead marking the Messiah’s birth, both in Virgo and Coma, pictured in the title banner of this blog above.

The clear biblical astronomy support for the Gospel in the Stars could not be in plainer sight, but was still missed by Faulkner, seen in the correlation of two of the categories of celestial signs he points out. First, the evidence we have presented regarding the birth of Christ above, with the Celestial Gospel, and how the monuments of the Giza Plateau, like the Great Sphinx as a memorial for the Alpha/Omega constellations of the 12 signs of the MazzarothVirgo and Leo, show the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid prophesy of the birth of Christ, providing a strong suit for the function of these ancient monuments. Secondly how, these constellations of Virgo and Leo marking Christ’s birth point to the Great Sphinx, with various planetary unions seen in the Celestial Sphinx, and also how the Great Pyramid witnesses to these aspects of the Celestial Sphinx with heavenly signs in Sept. 2017, give conclusive proof of the sacred function of the oldest man-made wonders on our planet’s surface. In our last blog we referenced a key astronomical function of the Great Sphinx, in its Pre-dynastic stellar role as a sighting device linked to its astronomical functions, to observe and record the horizon points of the sunrise, found not only in the Sphinx’ orientation facing due east, but also in relation to the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.

The Great Sphinx

The Sphinx’s solar alignments relating to the borders of the tropics, depict ancient knowledge of the zodiacal band, within which the heavenly bodies named by the Creator [Ps. 147:4, Gen. 37:9-11, Isa. 40:26, Job 9:7], shed their 3-fold light upon the Earth. God set the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, as boundaries within which the Sun, Moon and Planets all move, above and below the celestial Equator. Thus, it is the stars within the Zodiacal Band that God marked to carry the message of His Gospel in the Stars, and His eternal plan and purpose for mankind’s redemption.
We find added biblical evidence of this truth in Joseph’s second dream [Gen. 37:9-11], in an astronomical context.

Gen. 37:9-11 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. 10 And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? 11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

In this second dream of Joseph, we find evidence of the knowledge of the zodiacal band with the Biblical Patriarchs, since the 11 brothers of Joseph appear as the 11 stars with Joseph being the 12th constellation, summarizing the main signs found along the path of the Sun and Moon, embodied in his parents. This ancient knowledge of the zodiacal band among the Biblical Patriarchs, is another proof of the Gospel in the Stars in concert with Scripture and the Great Sphinx, that corroborates the historic signs from Giza not only of Christ’s birth, and first coming but also, points to the Return of Christ, and his Second coming. This also links another type of celestial sign showing the Blood Moon tetrads, as another category of Biblical Celestial Sign tied to the history of Israel and Jerusalem. These heavenly signs fall in the category of a Celestial sign including many Jerusalem prophecies that have recently been fulfilled, so we can truly recognize these “signs of the times,” as Jesus taught in Matt. 16:1-4.

God’s Revelation in the celestial gospels features 48 constellations, which include the 12 Signs of the zodiac, along with their 36 decans. These star-pictures were drawn around and associated with their specific star groups, starting with the earliest Bible Patriarchs, so that they would be handed down and remembered throughout the ages. In [Gen. 1:14] the lights in the firmament of Heaven were to be for “signs, seasons, days and years.” The word for “signs” [H226-owth] 6 is the same Hebrew word that refers to 12 constellations of the Mazzaroth. These signs were afterward, [Gen. 37, 49, Num. 2, Deut. 33] identified with the 12 sons of Jacob, representing the 12 tribes of Israel, providing a direct link, between the Gospel of the Stars and these Signs. In Joshua 4, when the nation of Israel first crossed into the Promised land, there was a special sign” [H226] that occurred where this notable occasion was marked by the Hand of God, and 12 special stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel were used to build a memorial to honor God, who brought Israel through the wilderness. Thus, even though this sign was not astronomical in nature, it still carries astronomical ramifications due to being linked not only to the 12 tribes, but also to the 12 stones, [Eben-H68] of this memorial.

Joshua 4:5-9 Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man: And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you a stone [H68-Eben] 7 upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel: That this may be a sign [H226] among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones? Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel forever. And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the Lord spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.

The Hebrew word for stone [H68-Eben] in Joshua 4:5 above, is the same word used for the 12 precious stones on the breastplate of the High Priest, both linked to the order of the 12 tribes [Exod. 28:10-11, 39:6-14] seen not only in the breastplate of the High Priest, but also in the order of encampment the 12 tribes in the wilderness, [Num. 2:2ff] around the Tabernacle, in their Cardinal Directions as follows:

1. VIRGOZebulon, Woman, Ship, carrying God’s people to safe harbor. [Deut. 33:18]
2. LibraLeviPriesthood, Judgment. The Scales balanced in the redemption of Christ’s Blood.                

3. SCORPIO-DAN [NORTH] [Gen. 49:17] a serpent by the way, with Ophiuchus/Serpens decan. 

4. SAGITTARIUS-ASHER; Crown of Life to the world, His bread shall be fat, as the Gospel Carrier. [Deut. 8:3]

5. CAPRICORN-Gad, Overcoming Troop [Deut. 33:18-19]  

6. AQUARIUS-REUBEN [SOUTH] [Gen. 49;3-4] “unstable as water” 

7. PICSES-SIMEON, [Gen. 49:5-6 & Levi] as brothers were not to be united, since together they killed a man.

8. ARIES– NAPHTALI means “struggle.” but the end of Naphtali alone is Taleh, a Lamb, [Jn. 1:29].

9. TAURUSJoseph, EPHRAIM & MANASSEH [TWO HORNS OF THE BULL] (WEST) [Deut. 33:16-17]

10. GEMINIBENJAMIN, Named Benoni as Rachel died birthing him, [sufferings]. Renamed by Jacob Son of my right hand-[Glory].   

11. CANCER-ISSACHAR, [Gen. 49:14-15] A Strong Ass between 2 burdens.

12. LEOThe LionJudah [EAST] [Gen. 49:8-10] Juda is a Lion’s whelp.

Thus, we find the general relation between the Blessings for each of the 12 Sons and the 12 signs of the zodiac in Gen. 49 and Deut. 33. When we allow God’s Word to speak for itself, and not rely on Theological Commentaries as our “go-to” primary resource in Bible research, the Scriptural witness will be clear. Since Joshua 4 links the same word for 12 Sons & signs of the zodiac, with the 12 stones of their memorial entrance into the promised land, we find a biblical link between the 12 signs of the zodiac with the 12 tribes of Israel, each tribe with their own sign and stone. This is not my opinion or conjecture, but Scriptural truth. The same word for “stone” [H68] is used in Ex. 28, in reference to the breastplate of the High Priest, where the names of the 12 tribes are engraved-6 each, on the shoulder onyx stones according to their birth order, [Ex. 28:10-11]. Just as there were 12 main gates in the city of Jerusalem, so there are also twelve gates and twelve foundation stones in the New Jerusalem, (Rev. 21:12-14). The order of the tribes not only matched the order of their wilderness camp, [Num. 1:52] but also includes their own tribal Standard, [H1714-degel] 8
flag or banner, for each tribe. This is crystal clear in;

Numbers 2:1-2 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, [H1714] 9 with the ensign [H226] of their father’s house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch.

Contrary to Faulkner’s opinion, there is no mystery as to what is depicted on each of these tribal banners or flags! Num. 2:2 tells us plainly that every man pitches by his own standard with the ensign [H226] of their father’s house. The word for ensign is the key being the same Hebrew word used in [Gen. 1:14, Josh. 4:5-9] linked to the 12 signs of the zodiac, each of the 12 banners with the emblem of their tribal constellation. In Psalm 74 this point is driven home so there is no doubt;

Psalm 74:4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.

Even the enemies of Israel “pitched” under the colors of Israel’s tribal banners in order to infiltrate them. Both the Hebrew words for “ensigns” and “signs” in this verse are the same word [H226]. So they lifted up their banners or tribal flags emblazoned with their family sign of the 12 “signs” or constellations of the zodiac. Thus we can see how Scripture records what images were on these standards.

Faulkner references Rolleston’s “problems with the zodiac in the Bible, stating; “the alleged parallels between the blessings for each son and the zodiacal signs are extremely creative. The only obvious possible connection is the one supposedly between Leo and Judah in that Judah is referred to as a lion. However, there is not even a hint of the other 11 links that Rolleston makes to Genesis 49. Rolleston speculated that each son carried a symbol from one of the signs of the zodiac and that Jacob pointed to each zodiacal symbol in pronouncing his blessing. This is entirely speculation on Rolleston’s part, and I have found no commentary that mentions, let alone endorses, this idea.”10

As we can see in our Zodiac list above, the correlations between the 12 tribes and 12 signs from Deut. 33 and Gen. 49 are much more congruent than Faulkner cares to admit, but God’s Word says nothing about Jacob pointing to the signs with his blessing, a pure fabrication. In Faulkner’s critique of Rolleston, she claimed the same correspondence between the tribes of Israel and signs of the zodiac is contained in the final blessing of Moses in Deut. 33 (Rolleston 1865, part 2, p. 38). Here and elsewhere (Rolleston 1865, part 1, p. 12, part 2, p. 48) Rolleston further claimed that in the wilderness each of the tribes carried a standard with the tribe’s respective zodiacal sign inscribed upon a standard. It is true that the tribes had standards, or banners, (Num. chapter 2 and 10), but Scripture does not record what was on the standards.”11

Faulkner’s views on Virgo and the “virgin birth” are included as follows; “Exhibit A is Virgo, which many take as an obvious analog to Mary. But is it? The prophecy of the virgin birth is from Isaiah 7:14, written a little more than seven centuries before fulfillment. Isaiah was written long after the gospel in the stars supposedly originated, but there is no biblical evidence that there was any other prophecy or expectation of a virgin-born Messiah prior to Isaiah. Given the high value of virginity, it is not surprising that a virgin might show up among the constellations. A virgin with a child in the ancient constellations would have been quite unusual, and so perhaps might have been a good argument for the gospel in the stars. Rolleston understood this, and so she was very creative is claiming that just such a thing did exist. But, alas, she did this with quite a bit of sleight-of-hand, by moving an unclear figure from the Dendera planisphere to a new location and suggesting a false history to accompany it.“12

The first problem with a “virgin birth” is that it not a Biblical Doctrine, since the Bible teaches a virgin conception. Mary was not married to Joseph at the time of the Almighty’s visitation on her, which was prior to their marriage. Faulkner’s comments on the “Virgin Birth” are included below, and as he points out “A virgin with a child in the ancient 12 signs  would have been quite unusual, and so perhaps might have been a good argument for the gospel in the stars.”13 In support of this, we have already shown regarding the Coma Decan on the Dendera zodiac, there is nothingunclear” about how the Coma decan is depicted on this planisphere, accept in Faulkner’s mind, because it contradicts his disbelief in the Celestial Gospel. Neither was the Coma Decanmoved to a new location” as it appears in alignment with Axis E on the Dendera zodiac along with Virgo’s Seed, witnessed as a stalk of grain on the Dendera planisphere. This picture of the promised seed as a young boy in the Virgin’s lap for this very reason was the celestial depiction of the virgin’s seed, in agreement not only with Gen. 3:15 but also Isa. 7:14, as an excellent case for the Gospel in the Stars. Once any honest reader sees the evidence on the Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis below, all doubt is removed regarding the validity of the Gospel in the Stars.

The unity of the Gospel in the Stars with God’s Written Word is evident on many levels, but those disclaiming the validity of the Celestial Gospel are blinded to this truth. Psalm 19 is a key chapter of Scripture that not only attests to the existence of the Almighty Creator, but also displays how the houses of the Sun referring to the 12 constellations of the Mazzaroth, provide the circuit-[ecliptic] where the Sun of Righteousness [Mal. 4:2] lives, moves and has his being. In this way, the heavens still speak to us today according to the principles of Biblical Astronomy, as the Sun. Moon, planets and Stars have their voice.

Psalm 19:1 – The Bible Wallpapers

Psalm 19:1-6 “The heavens declare the glory of ELOHIM. (CREATOR)

The verbs in this section are literary, then in vs. 7 they transition to the astronomical.

A Literal translation according to usage of Psalm 19:1-4 reads as follows:

v.1 “The heavens continuously [all the time, not sporadically] go over and over, again and again, rehearsing the glory of God, the Creator [Elohim], and all of God’s expanse keeps setting forth God’s great handiwork in the heavens.”

v.2 “Day in and Day out, the heavens are continuously pouring forth, telling and prophesying; and, night after night, the heavens continuously pour forth intelligent information.”

v.3 “There is no speaking forth by way of the heavens, nor words they pour forth in all the earth, where the words the heavens pour forth have not been heard.”

v.4 “The heavens allotted measurements (Zodiac-signs & seasons in Gen. 1:14) have gone over all the created earth, and the teachings of the heavens have gone all over the inhabited earth. In the constellations hath He established a tabernacle for the sun,”

notes on v.4 “line”= [qav] prophecies, also a survey line denoting the ecliptic or direction of the sun through the heavens, and the lines marking the decans” within the zodiacal houses of the sun. This is the universal standard of timekeeping and the basis of numerous cultural calendars throughout history. Also the lines of Latitude and
longitude on the face of the earth are found here, corresponding to these measuring lines, ordering the Heavens and reflected upon the Earth. [Rom. 10:17-18]

In them“=the heavens
tabernacle“=houses of the sun. [mansions of the 12 signs of the mazzaroth]

v.5 And he as a bridegroom embarking from his bridal canopy (pavilion), like a champion rejoices to run his course.

notes on v. 5…The oriental wedding would conclude with the groom leading the bride out of the canopy (indicative of God’s protection) after the marriage ceremony. This also is a figure for Christ-The Bridegroom, courting his BrideIsrael [Not the New Testament Church of his Spiritual BODY].

v.6 Its rising is at one end of the heavens, its circuit reaches from one end to the other, and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from its heat.

v.7 “The law of the Lord is perfect”=JEHOVAH’S Word in relation to His creation. [Here is the transition from literary to astronomical verbs]

“converting the soul”=returning as the sun returns in its circuit, so God can restore and heal every aspect of the soul life of a man, in the process of complete salvation wholeness.

v.8 The testimony of the Lord is faithful [as the sun is a faithful witness in the heavens Ps. 89:36-37] making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right rejoicing the heart. The commandment of the Lord is pure enlightening the eyes.

notes on v.8 “enlightening”=as the sun. {Isa. 60:18-19, II Pet. 1:19 “daystar”} The celestial bodies shed a 3-fold light upon the earth!
“testimony”-a repeating witness also as the Sun on the ecliptic.

v.9-10 The reverent fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired than gold, than much pure gold, they are sweeter than honey dripping from the honeycomb.

“clean”=active continual cleansing.
“true”=faithful in perpetuity

v.11 By them your servant is warned [reminded, illuminated and instructed] and in keeping them there is great reward.

“By them”=in them [moving & dwelling in the ordinances of the Lord, for in them we live & move & have our being] even as the sun lives and moves in and through the houses of the zodiac.
“warned”=instructed as in II Tim. 3:16 by Doctrine, Reproof and Correction.
“keeping”=observing
or watching as the stargazers and Biblical astronomers observe the heavens to learn its lessons and secrets. Even so the planets and celestial orbs observe the Creator’s ordinances as they remain in their ordained orbits.

v.12-13 Who can discern their lapses and errors? Clear and restrain me from unconscious faults, let them not have dominion over me.

“errors”=wandering within ordained limits as the planets in their orbits, like the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
“dominion”= to rule over as the sun rules over the day and the moon over the night [Gen. 1:18].

v.14 May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in thy sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

The Stars in their courses and the planets in their orbits, cycle through seasons of change in their orientation to the Sun. As the planets seem to “wander” in their appointed courses, ordered by God according to the phi ratio, like a sine wave they move both closer to, and farther from the Sun’s light. Even so, man in his growth and maturation process “wanders” on the path towards God’s light, and his physical and even spiritual growth also, is ordered by the same phi ratio. As we discern these orbits and their planetary lapses, we are enlightened, warned and instructed in our walk with the Lord. There is abundant grace and mercy in God’s forgiveness, even as a child stumbles and falls before he walks, and walks before he runs. As we learn to walk closer with our Maker, and run to serve His perfect counsels and purposes, we lend our voice to the growing chorus of the Body of Christ, walking the paths of the holy, while avoiding the snares of the evil one, until that long-awaited day when the Lord returns for us in the ultimate victory of the ages. This is some of the key teaching we can glean from the Celestial Gospels, as they exhibit some of the strongest evidence for the reality of our Almighty Heavenly Father and Creator.

Problems with Faulkner’s Interpretation of Orion

The name Orion appears three times in the Bible (Job 9:938:31Amos 5:8). Rolleston correctly noted that Chesil is the Hebrew word translated as “Orion” in all three uses (Rolleston 1865, part 2, p. 30). “Rolleston viewed Orion as a type of Christ. Part of this came from the name “Orion. The meaning and source of this name is obscure, but, according to Allen (1963, p. 304), it comes from Akkadian, and means “Light of Heaven,” an apparent appeal to Matthew 4:16 on Rolleston’s part.”14  Faulkner references various mythologies and legends where some of those stories have Orion stung on the foot, but others do not specify where the scorpion stung Orion.”15 We are more concerned with the star lore from a biblical or Hebraic perspective, although ancient Egyptian myth has proven to contain many of the celestial gospel themes in their original star names and decans. Many of these themes survived the idolatrous corruption of myths linked to the Solar cult of RA and Pharaoh’s ties to it, so that some ancient truths of the Gospel in the Stars still live, for example in the Dendera Zodiac, in the Coma decan prior to its Greek corruption.

As we view the Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis in Figure 1 below, we will clear the air of the confusion Faulkner seems to be spreading regarding the Gospel in the Stars. This axis embodies the persistent hope of mankind in the Coming Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Faulkner correctly references Genesis 3:15 as the 1st Messianic prophecy in God’s Word, and as such is a key reference, worthy of a closer look as a foundation to the Gospel in the Stars.

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

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

Figure 1. Genesis 3:15 Planisphere Axis.

This “Genesis 3:15 axis” extends through the North pole intersecting a number of constellations and notable decans that relate aspects of the Genesis 3:15, theme from various teaching perspectives. Starting at the top of the planisphere, we find the Scorpion constellationScorpius, whose prominent tail stinger is positioned just under the heel of Ophiuchus the Serpent-bearer constellation, who is engaged in a struggle with the serpent. The axis intersects the star in Ophiuchus’ heel, called Saiph, in the LXX Greek meaning “bruised.”16 This is the same Greek word used in Gen. 3:15 for “bruised,” while Ophiuchus’ other leg is poised over the head of the Scorpion, showing the fatal blow as he crushes the enemy. This enlargement of Ophiuchus wrestling the serpent for Corona-the Crown of Dominion, while the Scorpion stings his heel, tells us how our spiritual adversary is pictured both as a serpent and a scorpion, in conflict with the man, fitting the three Scriptural elements of the star picture. In Hebrew the Scorpion is Akrab, meaning war or conflict; [Ps. 91:13] with the man.

Figure 2. Ophiuchus, Serpens and Scorpius.

the serpent scorpion

As this axis extends through the next sign, we find it intersecting the decan of Ophiuchus called Hercules, whose foot is placed above the Head of Draco the serpentdragon at the North pole. The axis runs between the two heads of Hercules and Ophiuchus, who are aligned, but inverted to each other. The star in Hercules head is called Ras Al Gethi, meaning the head of him who bruises, keeping with the Gen. 3:15 theme. 17 As this axis extends down to Hercules left foot, it shows the result of Ophiuchusbattle with the Serpent, since Hercules left foot is crushing the Dragon’s head, seen in Fig. 3destroying the devil’s works. As Hercules is kneeling, his right heel is lifted up as if it was wounded, in some star maps with a spear through his heel. [Rev. 12:9-10, Ps. 74:12-14]

Figure 3. Hercules foot over the Dragon crushing it’s Head. 18

The Fourth Star-family - Part 3

If we now look at the other end of the Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis, we find amazingly that it intersects Orion, specifically at the star in Orion’s foot named Rigel, meaning “the foot that crushes,” which is fitting since it is pictured crushing the enemy. The main star in Orion’s other leg incredibly is “Saiph” the same word for bruised we saw in Ophiuchus that is used in Gen. 3:15! Not only do we find both ends of this amazing Planisphere axis agreeing with the same star name tied to Gen. 3:15, but before the axis reaches Orion’s foot, it intersects his the bright star in Orion’s shoulder called Bellatrix, meaning “swiftly destroying,” in reference to the swift destruction of the enemy at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. 19

Job 38:31-33

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

Figure 4. The decan of Orion, with his foot over the Hare initiating the River of Judgement.

zodiac stars

The original meaning of Orion is “coming forth as light.” The same word is used in Genesis. 1:17 and Isa. 60:1, referring to the light of the celestial luminaries.

Faulkner takes exception with Rolleston’s linking of Christ’s identification with Ophiuchus and Orion in the Celestial Gospel, despite the obvious parallels in this stellar depiction of [Gen. 3:15.] But if we let the stars speak, their witness of truth shines through any confusion. Faulkner says that Rolleston “observed that although in most charts Orion’s foot rests upon a hare, in at least one ancient Indian star chart there is snake in place of the hare. Presumably, this snake has bitten, or bruised, Orion’s heal, but he is crushing the serpent’s head in fulfillment of the first Messianic prophecy (Genesis 3:15).”20 Of course, this depiction of a serpent instead of a Hare is not limited to Indian zodiacs, but was also the case in the Dendera zodiac, along with Persian zodiacs as well. 21 As we have seen with the square Dendera Zodiac it is not only one of the oldest planispheres around, as found with its depiction of the Great Sphinx, but it is also a uniquely wonderful source for the identification of ancient decans, that describes Lepus the “hare,” as a serpent. According to Seiss, the Persian and Egyptian zodiacs also include the image of the serpent under Orion’s foot, caught in the claws of a hawk or eagle. 22

According to Faulkner;
There are several problems with Rolleston’s connection of Orion and Jesus Christ. First is Rolleston’s parallel between Orion dying by means of a scorpion and Christ’s heel being bruised by Satan. For example, the scorpion story is not the only story of Orion’s demise. An alternate ending (Olcott 1911) has Orion swimming away after battle with the scorpion when Apollo tricked Artemis into shooting the dark object in the water (Orion’s head) with an arrow. Only later did Artemis sorrowfully learn that she had killed Orion. Rolleston seemed to select the stories that best fit her hypothesis and ignored others. Furthermore, a scorpion is not a snake. To claim illustration of Genesis 3:15 with a scorpion is a tremendous stretch.”23

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

Figure 5. Draco and Cepheus at the North Pole.

draco

The fourth decan referred to above is Draco the dragon, seen in Figure 5 above, with Hercules’ Foot above its head, inside one of the circles of the Northern Polar Venn Diagram. This is pictured astronomically as the dynamic equatorial pole slowly moves around the static pole of the ecliptic, at the center of the upper circle. The common area between these overlapping polar wheels we find as a vesica of the Venn Diagram. This gives us another viewpoint of the precession of the poles, as the equatorial pole shifted from Thuban, in Draco’s tail to Polaris of Ursa Minor over the past 5000 years. This fulfills the promise of the coming redeemer, as our Gen. 3:15 axis passes through the current pole star Polaris, seen under the feet of Cepheus, the Crowned King, [Eph. 1:20-22]. This celestial image of the King of kings is realized and fulfilled in Christ Jesus, who now presides over the central star of the heavens, formerly under the dominion of the Dragon. Within this Polar circle, we find a triangle that encloses the Little Bear of Ursa Minor. The Triangle roughly consists of the Ecliptical pole at the center of this upper circle, along with two pole stars. One is Thuban the former pole star in the Dragon’s tail on the circle’s perimeter at the upper right corner, and the other is the current pole star Polaris, at the lower-left corner. As we find in Figure 6 below, the Pole star marked Al Ruccaba, is under the foot of Cepheus, meaning “the Branch,”24 exerting his authority over all Creation. Thus the man’s wounded foot has become the instrument of the serpent’s destruction, not only seen in the crushing fatal blow to the serpent’s head, but also is witnessed in the outcome of Ophiuchus’ struggle with the serpent for the Crown [Corona in Fig.2] of Dominion.

Figure 6. Cepheus the Crowned King.

Once again we find the common thread of truth running through this Gen. 3:15 Axis, because in the knee of the leg over Polaris, we have the star Al Rai, which means “he who bruises or breaks,25 since it is the man Jesus Christ as King Cepheus, who ultimately breaks the serpent and destroys it. This name Al Rai also marks a star in Orion that matches with Cepheus, just like the star Saiph matches Orion with Ophiuchus on both ends of this axis! This is by design of the Almighty, who named these stars, and aligned them to tell the divine story we are witnessing in the Gospel in the Stars right now! What critics like Faulkner have failed to realize, is that just like the Written Word of God is divinely inspired, so the Gospel in the Stars is also from the same Source. This signature of the Almighty on His handiwork is all the proof required to show the genuine validity of the Hand of the Almighty that underwrites the Celestial Gospel.

Faulkner’s problems with linking Christ with Orion seem to be that they don’t agree with mythology, which would be fine if world myths were the standard for truth. They can be valuable as we have noted, when they preserve the ancient themes of the Biblical Patriarchs written in the Gospel of the Stars, but not so much when they embody the corruption of those truths. As the stories support the biblical theme of the Genesis 3:15 prophecy of Christ, they not only show themselves worthy of our attention, in this case, but other cases also where the constellations and decans reference specific Scriptural themes. As we pointed out, the constellations can use composite truths as seen in Figure 2, where both the snake and the scorpion are pictured in conflict with the man, so the theme of [Gen. 3:15] is upheld as the scorpion and serpent depict it, especially when we take into consideration the other serpents being crushed by Christ figures on this axis! So the standard is, does the stellar image agree with Scriptural truths? Not does it fit our pet thesis, opinion or cultural mythologies.

Faulkner’s use of cultural myths as a basis for interpreting the meaning and message of the stars is an unfortunate example of him accusing Rolleston, Bullinger and Seiss of exactly what he is guilty of; choosing the argument that fit his critique of Rolleston’s Gospel in the Stars thesis. Faulkner’s cursory handling of the Hebrew word and root for Orion is another example. As Faulkner states;

A third problem with Rolleston’s interpretation is chesil, the Hebrew word used for Orion. Elsewhere this word is translated “fool.” For instance, the eight times that the word fool appears in Proverbs 26, this is the word used. Thus, by the Hebrew name for him, we can see that Orion is not an individual worthy of respect and devotion. To equate this fool with a type of Christ at the very least seriously borders on blasphemy, and most Christians ought to find this offensive. If Rolleston had been as proficient in Hebrew as required to do the word studies that she supposedly did, then she would have known that the Hebrew word for Orion is the same as a “fool.” Instead, Rolleston (1865, part 2, p. 10) claimed that chesil means “bound together,” while Bullinger (1893 p. 125) claims that chesil refers to a great man, but these claims are patently false. Rolleston either was not qualified to do these studies, or she intentionally ignored this blasphemous connection. Bullinger, Seiss, and others ought to have known better than this, but, alas, they did not, or they chose to go with their pet thesis instead. This is an example of gospel in the stars proponents ignoring biblical names for stars, opting instead for pagan sources, because those sources support their thesis.”26

A more in-depth view of the Hebrew Root structure for “chesil” is seen in an analysis from Strong’s Concordance, of this word. If Faulkner would have paid attention to Strong’s handling of this word, he would have known that sometimes a single Hebrew word, can have different usages. In this case “chesil” [H3685] is the name of the constellation Orion, [Job 9:9, 38: 31-33, Amos 5:8], which the orientals call the Giant, perhaps where Bullinger got his “great man” from? They apparently saw this as the figure of an impious giant bound to the sky, referring to Job’s; “canst thou loose the bands of Orion?” Gesenius has a revealing comment and warning that says; [We must not interpret the Scripture as though it countenanced foolish superstition.] 27 Had Faulkner followed Gesenius’ advice here, he could have avoided the bulk of his undistinguished commentary, since much of mythology could be considered “foolish superstition,” [1 Tim. 4:7].

Another usage in this category in reference to Isa. 13:10 is the “Orion’s” or giants of Heaven, talking about the greater constellations of the sky in a Star Atlas catalog. Since Orion is one of the most prominent and visible signs in the sky, it was used as an exemplar for these types of constellations. A third usage of this word [H3686] refers to a town in Southern Judah, along with a fourth usage [H3687] referencing “folly,” [Prov. 9:13]. 28 This compares to what Faulkner discussed [H3684], but he made no references to these other astronomical usages of this word, because it did not fit his rant that people should be offended on the blasphemous ramifications of comparing Christ to afool.” Again, Faulkner is the one “ignoring or omitting biblical names for stars like “Orion,” so that he can criticize Rolleston, Bullinger, and Seiss, in their support of the Gospel in the Stars. This also links to another of Faulkner’s criticisms of Gospel in the Stars backers, that we are not adhering to the “Hebrew words closest to the original intended meanings and their soteriological purposes, and thus ought to be central to the Gospel in the Stars thesis.”29 It seems this qualifies as a key example where we make our case for not only the Gospel of the Stars, but also provide a lesson in “not handling the Word of God deceitfully,” expressly for egotistical purposes or self-promotion, [2 Cor. 4:2]. These tendencies from Faulkner only serve to undermine his critique.

The last decan highlighted by our Gen. 3:15 Planisphere Axis, is Auriga, as seen below in Figure 7. Our axis runs very close to the point where the large horn of Taurus, the onrushing Bull pierces the heel of our Shepherd. In keeping with the Gen. 3:15 theme we have found with all the signs and decans our axis marks, here the Bull’s horn strikes the heel of Auriga’s right foot, at the star named Al Nath, meaning the wounded or slain. 30

Figure 7. Auriga The Shepherd. [Jamieson, 1822]

auriga-jamieson-1822-cr (373K)

Bullinger says; “He is the Good Shepherd who gave his life for the Sheep, [Jn. 10:11], the Great Shepherd who was brought again from the dead, [Heb. 13:20] and now the Cheif Shepherd, [I Pet. 5:4] seen in the day of his coming glory.” 31 Auriga depicts a picture of the exalted and mighty savior, exercising his loving mercy and salvation in the midst of the scenes of judgment, just as the scriptures tell us that in the midst of wrath he remembers mercy. (Hab. 3:2)

Auriga contains the sixth brightest star in the sky: Capella, the goat star, the chief star in this decan means “She-goat,“32 and marks the heart of the mother goat. She and her kids are scared but they are safe in the arms of the shepherd. Here we see the Shepherd ruling in his authority, rescuing his own from evil, gathering and protecting as a shepherd. With our Gen. 3:15 axis closely by-passing Capella before reaching the tip of the bull’s horn piercing his heelAuriga sits astride the Milky Way, the symbolic Lord Jesus Christ, the sacrificial lamb who is coming again to execute judgment.

With the conclusion of our Gen. 3:15 axis running down through Orion, we find issuing from Orion’s foot, the River of the Judge-Eridanus, [Hab. 3:5]. This indicates Jesus‘ righteous judgment against the enemy and all the evil ones. Along the course of Eridanus, we find the Serpent-Cetus’, futile attempt to alter or stop the inexorable flow of these waters of 33
 judgment with one of its claws. The evil ones will never be able to escape their doom, because of their refusal to succumb to the loving Grace of God in Christ. Thus, their end resides where these waters of judgment pool in the Lake of Fire, or the Second Death. [2 Thess. 1:7-8]

In summary, the Genesis 3:15 Axis provides a panoramic view of the Gospel in the Stars across the expanse of the signs in the Zodiacal band, of the stars named and numbered by The Creator, to relate the infinite theme of God’s eternal purpose carried and fulfilled by His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, as told in the first Messianic prophecy written in God’s Word. The truth as it is presented in the heavens by the Hand of God Himself, is indisputable, to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

The True Desire of God’s Heart is that all men be saved, and come unto a knowledge of the truth…so it is as we see the final days approaching, we reach out with God’s loving arms to those walking in darkness, to show them the light!!

God Bless!

As we are all making sacrifices and enduring certain hardships due to the Covid-19 virus,
I wanted to pass on Jon Nessle’s excellent article in a special blog post this month.

Are Virtue Signaling Pastors Breaking the Law?
(2020 Covid-19 Pandemic)
By Rev. Jon O. Nessle

It was the winter of 1974 and my first Sermon. The room had been rented and
everything organized and I was ready. But then a snow storm hit. Normally an inch
or two of snow would not thwart my congregation who were from small Midwest
towns and farms, who would not think much of it. But this snow fall was over 8
inches! I called everyone up and said, don’t come. We will reschedule it. I knew
that there would be some stubborn or persistent folks who would brave the elements
and still try to come and I had elderly members that I did not want to put at risk. So
I postponed the meeting and told everyone to even call folks that they didn’t think
would come, just to make sure no one tried.

Weeks later when the meeting was to be held again, it began snowing again. I
declared, not again! I called up a few strong believers and we prayed for the snow
to stop. At the same time another congregant was flying in to the local airport. He
later told me of a strange thing he witnessed. He saw the snow stop falling! He said
it happened all across the sky simultaneously. The snow stopped all at once and as
the plane was descending to land he watched the clear patch of sky increase in size
moving downward. The layer of snow fell together like a falling blanket, leaving
clear air above! I asked him when was this? It was exactly at the same time we were
praying. We on the ground saw the snow stop and so we continued preparations for
the meeting.

Then one hour before the meeting was to start, I received a phone call from my
Mother. Her house had caught on fire! Thankfully, it was put out in time and the
damage was not terrible. I was 30 miles away. I asked her if she was OK and she
said yes and I explained that I could be there in a few hours and she said that was
fine. So I taught my first Sermon and made the Devil sorry he ever messed with me!
What was the difference between those two incidents? Wisdom.

With this current pandemic, these are unprecedented times in our lifetime,.
Ecclesiastes, a book of wisdom declares:
2
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under
the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time
to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a
time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time
to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast
away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a
time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of
peace.

Perhaps this too is a time for wisdom : Because of the potential to spread the virus,
this is a time to refrain from embracing. Sometimes we face situations in which
there seem to be conflicts of priorities or Laws. This is one of them. On one hand,
the First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution states that “Congress shall make no
law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
On the other hand, Regional Health Authorities and State and County Governments
are imposing quarantines or limits on the size of meetings including Church, to limit
potential exposure to the virus. What should we do? Normally such constitutional
things are adjudicated in a Court of Law in which a Judge weighs the issues and then
based upon his or her wisdom, applies the law. We do not have time for that, for
this virus does not wait. But since this conflict of law will ultimately be resolved by
wisdom, can we not appeal to wisdom now?

This is the key question: Is complying with the Government’s temporary restriction
on large meetings, including Church meetings, an act of fear and therefore a violation
of faith? Is there a Biblical precedent for this situation? Yes there is! Quarantines
are Biblical and the rules are outlined in Leviticus 13ff. Therefore, obeying
quarantines are not a questioning of our faith.

Leviticus 13:1-5
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,
2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab,
or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of
leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one
of his sons the priests:
3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh:
and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in
sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy:
and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be
not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white;
then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:
5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if
the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the
skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

The priests were tasked with the job of diagnosis and quarantine because they were
authorities who could be trusted. While some could dogmatically claim that the
observation of such things must be done exactly the same today, I say that the
principles that are here can transfer to our modern situation. Today the trusted and
licensed ones who are tasked with diagnosis of disease and setting quarantines are
Doctors. Back then the Priests were trained and experienced in this. Today our
equivalent, Pastors, Priests and Rabbis, etc. are not. But the truth of quarantining
for a period of time still stands.

The Law of Moses also contained fascinating details about hygiene that protected
the Jews from germs 3000 years before they were discovered by Louis Pasteur.
There are directives about washing after touching dead things, and being unclean for
periods of time. This also includes washing clothes that were worn and even shaving
and social distancing!
4
Leviticus 14:8
8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off
all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and
after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out
of his tent seven days.
9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair
off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he
shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his
flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

Leviticus 14:34-48 even speaks of checking homes and condemning the buildings.
Again in modern times, religious leaders are not tasked or trained for such things.
Other trained and licensed experts are. It is fascinating to read this section of
Scripture knowing that mankind did not know about germs (but God did…)
5
Leviticus 15:2-13
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any
man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is
unclean.
3 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh
run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his
uncleanness.
4 Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and
every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.
5 And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe
himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
6 And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat that hath the issue
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean
until the even.
7 And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall
wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until
the even.
8 And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean
until the even.
9 And what saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue shall
be unclean.
10 And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be
unclean until the even: and he that beareth any of those things shall
wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until
the even.
11 And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not
rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe
himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
12 And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue,
shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
13 And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he
shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his
clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

Leviticus 17:15
And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which
was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a
stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,
and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean

Disease was prevented by the requirement to go outside the camp and defecate there
and then bury it. (Deuteronomy 23:12, 13.) Bloodborne diseases were prevented by
the prohibition of eating blood and viruses borne by unclean animals were avoided
by dietary laws. Leviticus 22: 4ff states that these rules even applied to the priests
themselves. Furthermore, Exodus 30:17-21 required the priests wash at the Laver.
While this would have ceremonial significance, it also has health implications for
the Tabernacle was a place of assembly for the congregation and as such, a common
source of the transmission of germs, much like schools are today. Social distancing
also was part of the Law:
6
Deuteronomy 23:10, 11
10 If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of
uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad
out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:
11 But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash himself
with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp
again.

So was the compliance with the Law a question of fear or faith? No, it
was of 
obedience. Therefore because of this precedent, I think that wisdom
should prevail 
and that we ministers who run Church meetings ought to think
of our most vulnerable congregants and not put them in harm’s way. Look. The Priests
and even Moses were super-believers and at times had interceded to miraculously stop
plagues, more than once. So why were these health related regulations even needed?
Wisdom

Yes, these times are fearful and assembling with fellow believers is a comfort, but
the mitigating factor of the potential for virus transmission discourages that. But
thankfully, because of our affluence and technology in the USA and other countries,
there are other ways of assembly. We can assemble virtually over the Internet or in
cell phone conference calls. But we also must reach the most vulnerable group
which is our elderly folks who make up a significant proportion of some Churches.
They do not tend to utilize technology to the same degree as younger generations.
But there are still ways of dealing with this. I heard of congregations who have
assembled in their cars in parking lots and the Pastor preached from horseback.
Churches could even utilize closed Drive in Theatres for this purpose.

Furthermore, I know of no general reason for any minister to require anyone
to break 
quarantine, unless, of course, one has technicolor revelation to do so.
I say “technicolor” because such a thing would violate what I have just shared from the
Bible. There is precedent for doing so like when Paul circumcised Timothy despite
what he wrote about circumcision, but again, he had technicolor guidance to do so.
So if a minister thinks he has such guidance, may I remind him that the rules for
prophets given in the Old Testament apply:
7
Deuteronomy 18:22

When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow
not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not
spoken,
but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously:
thou shalt not be afraid of [revere, (hence obey any more)] him.

There could be a miracle like what happened with the snow preceding my second
meeting. But if there is no divine intervention, people could get hurt. So if anyone
follows his so-called guidance and gets sick he cannot attribute that to their lack of
faith. There are healthy Churches and unhealthy ones, true ministers and false ones,
and there is a lot of gray area in between for both. When it comes to such
complicated analyses, the words of Jesus suffice: “By their fruits ye shall know
them.” He did not say “by their words…”

In my opinion, any organization who legalistically requires people to attend Church
is violating the spirit of assembly which is at the core of any ekklesia. People ought
to be coming because they want to, because they get results, fruit, not just words. If
people are criticized and judged there, something is wrong. It is not healthy. Or if
ministers feel they have to signify themselves or their Church by breaking the rules
of quarantine, both rules, I say, of our secular government and in the Bible, unless
they have “technicolor” revelation to do so, it is either that they are confused,
immature or virtue signaling. The English Oxford Dictionary describes “virtue
signaling” as: “a pejorative neologism for the conspicuous expression of moral
values.” That is, it is a newly coined term of communicating disapproval by
conspicuously expressing one’s moral values. They are disapproving of the
quarantine by signaling their supposed “holy bravery” by implying they have great
faith in spite of it. Well, that’s great for you, but what about grandma? You can be
responsible for your own risks, for the Bible says, “may your blood be on your
own 
head.” But what about the vulnerable folks in your congregation?

In a religious setting, virtue signaling is the “persistence or occurrence of various
costly religious practices such as circumcision, fasting, snake handling, and trial by
ordeal. This idea is that the participation in an act with a religious purpose serves as
a way to signal one’s dedication to the beliefs held by that religion, thereby signaling
personal morality to onlookers.” 1

These virtue signalers are trying to gain acclaim and followers like birds dancing and
displaying their plumage to attract mates. The Bible has another way of describing it.
8
Colossians 2:23a

Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility…

The word “will worship” is ethelothrēskeia which is defined as a self-devised external form of ceremonial service. 2
Self-devised, as in not of God, external, as in showing off, ceremonial, as in not practical or useable. So my advice is find yourself another Church if they are requiring you to break quarantine. After this is all over you can go back if there is anyone left…

________________________________________________________________

Jon’s reference to Ecc. 3 and the “28 times” as they relate to the 28 Lunar Mansions, fits in with our current series on the Lunar Mansions, which we will be wrapping up in our Part 3, blog post later this month.

From the 28 times in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8 we see the obvious juxtaposition to “easy times
vs. “difficult” ones14 on either side, like 2 hands. These associated attributes with the twenty-eight “times” in Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 come in pairs, and in each pair, one element is the opposite of the other. Birth/ Death; Planting/ Plucking; Killing/ Healing,
Breaking down /Building up, etc. This strongly suggests the goal is to portray a range
of human activity according to this pattern whether good or evil, depending on individual choice. Again, with the knowledge that all these results can occur in life, with God on our side in His path of righteousness, we can still prevail in the most difficult of “times” in this world. This brings to mind Deut. 30, where God’s Word lists some related pairs resulting from
freewill choice He has given to all men, to walk in their lives in the ways that they choose to go.

Deut. 30:19-20

19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for He is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

God not only gives us this freewill choice, He also tells us which choice benefits us the most! We are thankful for Jon Nessle, providing us a perspective of added wisdom in these difficult times that clarifies the vagaries of choice we are faced with every day.

Let’s Choose life Folks


God Bless,

Rene’
