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

Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy

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

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

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

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

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega not only in Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, but also from Virgo to Leo in the Celestial Gospel of the Mazzaroth, represented in the Great Stone Monument of the Sphinx on the Giza Plateau. We find these landmarks of the Alpha and Omega at the head and tail of the zodiac, which adds light to Dr. Martin’s observation that: “the woman Virgo is the Constellation of Headship for all twelve signs. The head position of Virgo is located within the last 10 degrees of Leo.” Virgo’s head is seen in Fig. 1, just below & adjacent to the star Denebola in the tail of the Lion, unifying the circle of the zodiac. The Sphinx also unifies the Biblical canon, establishing the chronological order of God’s written revelation, in the Bible’s earliest book of Job.

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

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

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

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

The Famed Star Cluster of the Pleiades.

star cluster

Job 38:31-33
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? [32] Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? [33] Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

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

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

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

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

The Mazzaroth and the 12 Tribes of Israel

Jer. 31:35-36
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 19:1-5

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Decan of Orion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Ziggurat at Ur.

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

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

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

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

We will see more in Part 2 of The Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy in our next blog post…

Birth of Jesus Christ

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

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

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

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

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

Image result for https://blood moon over crucifixion images

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

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

Figure 2. Revelation 12 sign of Christ’s birth on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. 2

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

Partial Lunar       Purim               3/4/71

 

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

Figure 4. Rev.12 Sign; 9/23/17 [Sun clothing Virgo with the Moon at her feet]. 3

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Figure 6. Apian’s Astronomicum Ceasareum (1540 AD) 5

calculation of the solar and lunar eclipse

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

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

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

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

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

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

God Bless!

Comments Off on The Celestial Prelude and the Blood Moons of 5 BC [Part 2]

The Times of the Gentiles and the Temple at Jerusalem

The Blood Moon Phenomena including the Blood Moon Tetrads on Hebrew feasts and holy days has truly been a treasure trove of heavenly signs that opened our awareness to Biblical Astronomy truths in a wide range of revelation in Bible Prophecy. These celestial signs have provided valuable spiritual instruction regarding the Lord’s Feasts in Israel, and how Christ embodies these holy days in his ministry to the spiritual body of his Church. In the 8 Blood Moon Tetrads since Christ, the most recent has been the Tetrad of 2014-15, which is significant since there will not be another similar tetrad for centuries.

The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15 essentially opened with a Passover Lunar Eclipse on April 15th, 2014. Prior to the April 4th 2015 Passover Blood Moon, an unprecedented Total Solar Eclipse occurred on March 20th, at the Spring Equinox. This marked the beginning of the Hebrew month of Nisan, the start of their ecclesiastical year, at the midpoint of the Shemitah year in 2015.  Any total solar eclipse reaching the rarefied air of the North Pole is unique, and the path of this Total Solar Eclipse ended at the North Pole, putting it within eclipse totality for about two minutes. A total solar eclipse at the North Pole on the Spring Equinox takes place about once every 100 centuries, but it had never happened on Nisan 1 in Hebrew Timekeeping, especially when combined with a Super-moon, putting this Total Solar eclipse in a class by itself. A chart of the Blood Moon Tetrads over the last 2000+ years is available in our blog post @ Biblical Blood Moon Calendar.

This March 20th eclipse in 2015 was indeed a special one. While comparing historical eclipse data on the Spring Equinox; we found a solar eclipse (not at the North Pole) on March 20, 71 AD, also on Nisan 1 on the Hebrew Calendar. 1  A few months prior to these eclipses in 71 AD, Jerusalem was attacked and the Temple was destroyed. This Temple destruction occurred on the infamous 9th of Av in 70 AD. Although prince Titus had given the strictest orders to his Roman Legions that the temple should be spared, it was “accidentally” set on fire and consumed. On this day, August 5th, AD. 70, an awful scene of smoking ruins deluged with blood arose around the besieged Temple, where the daily sacrifice had ceased in Israel on July 13th, 70′ for lack of priests to offer it. As we will see below, this is one of the notable times in history where the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed by fire.

The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15

Four-Blood-Moons

The Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th, 2015, was not only unique because it took place at the North Pole, but also because it fell right in the middle of this Blood Moon Tetrad. Much has been written about the position and timing of this total solar eclipse, but taking place in the center of this Tetrad is a key, when we consider how the 2016 solar and lunar eclipses link the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad to the Rev. 12 sign of Sept 23, 2017. The year of 2016 also saw the mirroring of solar and lunar eclipses in 70 AD. Not only are these solar and lunar eclipses mirrored exactly as seen in the chart below in 70/2016, but a Rev. 12 sign is also reflected in the center of the 70′ solar and lunar eclipses, on 8/27/70, three weeks after the destruction and burning of Jerusalem’s Temple by Titus on the 9th of Av.

The final Super Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad takes place after the Hebrew 50-year Jubilee opened on the Day of Atonement, Sept. 23rd, 2015, exactly 2 years prior to the Rev. 12 sign on 9/23/2017. This is noteworthy since the 9/28/15 Super Blood Moon was the first Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Tetrad that was visible in Jerusalem, as the city of God was liberated by Israel for the first time in nearly 2000 years in the preceding Jubilee year of 1967, also marked by the previous Blood Moon Tetrad of 1967-68. As we consider this feature of visibility over Jerusalem, we find it upheld also with each of the lunar triples bracketing the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad, as the 2nd Blood Moon of both lunar triples was also visible over Jerusalem. This directly links the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 and the eclipses of 2016 with the razing of the Jerusalem Temple in 70′.

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

As the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad of the end days was centered between the saddest days on the Hebrew Calendar, the days of Av marked by Lunar Triples in 2010-11 and 2018-19, as seen above they commemorate the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple on two key occasions in their history, one of which we have highlighted below, with the 69-71 AD solar and lunar eclipses, marking the Romans Destruction of the Jerusalem Temple. It is also noteworthy that the triple union of Jupiter- Regulus in Leo, marking Christ’s birth in 3-2 BC, synchronize here since the next one did not recur till 69-70 AD, 2 opening to the Partial Lunar Eclipse on the Feast of Tabernacles on 10/18/69′.

These dates may look familiar to those following my Biblical Astronomy Blog [blog.try-god.org], since we have presented some of this material in prior blogs, as the first Total Solar Eclipses of 2016 form the continuation of Solar and Lunar signs on Hebrew Feast days after the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15Due to a lack of consensus on the appearance of Aviv Barley in Israel, the alignment of these solar and lunar eclipses with Hebrew Feasts went mostly unnoticed in 2016. But they are key as they not only represent a direct link to the Aug. 21st, 2017 Pan-American Total Solar eclipse, but they also reflect the eclipses of 70′, when Titus destroyed the Jerusalem Temple.

Amazingly, another version of this Rev. 12 celestial wonder takes place on August 27th, in 70′, between the 4/14/70 Passover Lunar Eclipse, and the 9/21/70 Rosh Hashannah Solar Eclipse! As we have proposed in other blog posts, the Rev. 12 sign marking the birth of Christ on Sept. 11th, 3 BC, has the potential of a dual fulfillment, looking towards the victorious return of our Lord and Savior in the near future. If this is the case as I have proposed in the Celestial Prelude, then we should see related planetary activity linked to this Rev. 12 sign not only in 3-2 BC and 70 AD, but also connected to the 9/23/2017 version of this sign. As we compare the 3 versions of this Rev. 12 sign, each has Virgo clothed with the Sun, crowned with 12 stars, with the Moon at her feet. The nine primary stars of Leo along with three added planets make up the crown of 12 stars over Virgo’s head in Leo. In 70′ the three planets in Leo were Jupiter-Venus, and Mercury, while in 2017 they were Venus, Mars and Mercury.

In the 8/27/70 Rev. 12 sign, Jupiter and Venus in such close union they appear to merge into one star just as they did in 2 BC, except this time in the lower rear paw of Leo, [Fig. B]. Jupiter and Venus are also aligned with Mercury-Gabriel and the King Star Regulus in Leo. Its truly extraordinary that this version of the Rev. 12 Sign occurs in the center of the solar and lunar eclipses falling on Hebrew Feast and holy days, as they also marked the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70′. Since all three versions of the Rev. 12 sign take place in Virgo and Leo, they also fall in the category of Celestial Sphinx signs, the Alpha and Omega signs of the Biblical Zodiac.

Just as these signs of the Celestial Sphinx are evident in the Solar and Lunar Tetrads of 168-166 BC with Antiochus IV, and Titus’ 70′ destruction of the Jerusalem Temple, both forerunners of the Anti-Christ, these signs were also present both in the Rev. 12 signs of the birth of Christ, on Sept. 11th 3, BC, and also the Rev. 12 sign on 9/23/17. This of course supports our thesis of the Celestial Prelude. The reader can refer to previous studies on the Celestial Sphinx and the Celestial Prelude to gain added context with these subjects.

The planetary activity surrounding these Rev. 12 signs is a key to unlock the secrets of these related celestial signs. As we may recall there was a triple union of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC, marking the birth of Christ, not seen again till 69-70 AD. These signs were bracketed by 2 Jupiter-Venus conjunctions on Aug. 12th, 3 BC and June 17th, 2 BC. We also find critical Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in 70′ and in 2015-2017, as part of the Celestial Sphinx signs in Virgo and Leo. This conjunction series includes 2 Jupiter-Venus triple unions, one each in Leo then in Virgo, the head of the Woman united with the body of the Lion, as the two primary components of the Great Sphinx. We find this manifested also at the birth of Christ in a dazzling Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Leo on June 17th of 2 BC.

Jupiter-Venus Conjunction

The 1st Jupiter-Venus Conjunction marking the birth of Christ took place in August, 3 BC, in Leo, with the closest union occurring on June 17th, 2 BC, also in Leo. Here we find an interesting variation on a Celestial Sphinx sign directing us to the planetary unions of Jupiter-Venus, marking an initial fulfillment of the Rev12:1-2 prophecy relating to the sufferings of Christ in his ministry as the Passover Lamb. This alerts us that we should also look for similar Celestial Sphinx signs as a precursor to the glory of Lord’s Second Coming, a key element of the dual fulfillment of the Rev12:1-2 prophecy. [Lk. 4-JC]

In addition to marking the start and close of the celestial canon, the Great Sphinx mirrors the binding of Scripture together from Genesis to Revelationas seen in references to Jesus as the Lion of the tribe of Judah in both Gen. 49:8-10 and Rev. 5:5, the first and last books of the Bible. Another indicator of the key importance of these stellar aspects of the Great Sphinxis  the Celestial Sphinx; Virgo and Leo the lion provide the basis for the signs of the triple union of Jupiter-Regulus in Leo,
in 3 BC related to Gen. 49:8-10. This is a foundation key linking the Sphinx both to the celestial Gospel and God’s Word, in their unified testimony of the Coming Promised Seed.

As we view the conjunctions of Jupiter-Venus in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15, an earlier union of these planets occurred in Cancer, on August 18, 2014 which came 1131 days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. This leads into the signs of the Celestial Sphinx on the following dates, where Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Leo in took place in the Jubilee year of 2015-2016:

June 30th, 2015
August 25th, 2015
October 26th, 2015

The following dates saw Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Virgo in 2016-17, culminating with Nov. 13th 2017:

July 27th, 2016
Feb. 26th, 2017
Nov. 13th, 2017

Near dawn in the first days of November 2017Venus the Morning Star followed Jupiter through Virgo, passed by Spica-Al Zemach, the branch and offspring of God appearing closest before sunrise on November 2. 5  Spica, shining in its 1st magnitude brilliance, illuminating the four fold ministry of Christ it embodies in Scripture, seen in the spiritual light of the four Gospels. When paired with Venus, the 3rd brightest object behind the Sun and Moon, this conjunction is one that deserves our attention.

The Nov. 13thJupiter-Venus union finds the bright and Morning Star, less than 1/3 of a degree apart,  [Rev. 22:16] from the king planet. The question that seems to stand out from these astronomical observations is why would the Almighty emphasize the Rev. 12 signs of the birth of Jesus Christ with the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple? Remember how we opened this study referring to the Total Solar Eclipse at the North Pole, on March 20th falling in the middle of the 2014-15 Blood Moon Tetrad? But in 70′ the destruction of the Temple on the 9th of Av reflects God’s Judgement on Israel due to their rejection of Jesus Christ the Messiah. This rejection of Christ has caused blindness on Israel, [Rom. 11:5-12, 25-32] bringing salvation to the Gentiles, that will not be lifted till the fullness of the Gentiles is come. When Christ Returns WITH his Saints he will complete his judgement on the world, [Rev. 19:11-18]. The first phase of his Return is when he comes FOR his Saints, [1 Thess. 4:13-18].

Picking up again on the earlier conjunction of Jupiter-Venus in Cancer, on August 18, 2014 occurring 1131 days prior to the
Feast of Trumpets 9/21/2017, there is some intriguing math linked to this Jupiter-Venus conjunction series. When 1131 days is divided by pi, the product is 360 days. 6 The number 360 is not only central in time measures, but is also key in the geometry of a circle-where pi is a ruling precept. The close union of Venus-Jupiter on August 27, 2016 also came 360 days prior to the Pan
American Total Solar Eclipse inclusively, in Leo on Aug. 21, 2017. But there are added pi numbers found in relation to the
Jupiter-Venus conjunction series before the Trumpets Feast 2017Eight Hundred fourteen days before this feast there was a union of Venus and Jupiter, July 1, 2015. When we multiply 814 days by pi, the product is seven solar years of 2,555 days. 
This also contains the sum of 1260 x 2=2520, or [360 x 7], showing how two 1260 day periods are contained in 7 solar years. 7

Figure C.  8

 The day counts of these pi calculations are inclusivein that they include both start and end days. Considering the day counts in Fig. C, the period of 400 days is worthy of a closer look. By an inclusive count, its true sum is 401 days from th2nd Cancer conjunction to the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21, 2017, [Fig. D]. If we take 401 days multiplied by pi, it equals 1,260 days. 9 Of course, 1,260 is 1/2-2520 days, or the 7 year Tribulation period minus 35 days. But 1260 is also the number of days from the 1st Blood Moon eclipse of the Tetrad (April 15, 2014) till the Revelation 12 sign, Sept. 23-25, 2017, [Figure C]. This tells us the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-15 leading to the Rev. 12 sign on 9-23-17 is not only a strong warning of the Tribulation, but the inclusive count of 1,260 days ending at September 25th also is a clue to its solution, that men of God have sought ever since the archangel Gabriel told Daniel the vision was sealed till the time of the end; [Dan. 12:9]. As we found in our previous August blog post looking at the numbers related to the Gentile dominion over Jerusalem in Biblical Prophecy;

 “Saros cycles breakdown into two cycles, one of 666 years and the other of 594 years totaling 1260 years. We know that 1260 years is a soli-lunar cycle, so exact that its epact or remainder is only 6 hours. Bullinger stresses not only these aspects of the 1260 year period but also its double-2520 years. 10 Bullinger believed that these 1260 year periods marking the Gentile’s dominion over Jerusalem and its Temple in history, would foreshadow 1260 day periods in the end-times, when the final Abomination of Desolation was to be fulfilled, before and during the Great Tribulation. [2 Thess. 2:1-4]. This time of the fullness of the Gentiles is supported astronomically with findings above in the 1260 days from the 1st Blood Moon eclipse of the Tetrad to the Rev. 12 sign, on 9/23/17, as a precursor to the 1260 day end-time prophesies, [Rev. 11:1-3, 12:6, 14, 13:5].

The 2520 year period is known as the great “seven times” of prophecy, perhaps because the periods of Gentile dominion over Jerusalem and its Temple in history are “divided” into 2 spans of 1260 years, forming another kind of “week.”  Even as these two 1260 year periods of Gentile dominion over Jerusalem are encapsulated in the times leading up to the Great Tribulation, so they reflect two 1260 day periods are contained within the 7-year Tribulation. Furthermore, these 2520 days point to a future fulfillment of the various 1260 day42 months and a time, times and half a time periods of this week we have listed above, during the Great Tribulation.

Figure D. 11

The last Blood Moon eclipse of this Tetrad on Sept. 28, 2015, was the only Moon in the Tetrad visible in Jerusalem, took place 2520 weeks from the end of the 6-Day-War, during the previous Blood Moon Tetrad of 1967-68, when Israel reclaimed control over Jerusalem for the first time since 70′. This is enlightening when we recall the 7 weeks, or 49-day count between Passover and Pentecost, is also the basis for the 7 weeks of years that form the 50 Year Jubilee on the Hebrew Calendar, as seen in the 50 years between 1967-68 to 2017-18. This gives us a common standard for calculating weeks, days and years in Biblical time-keeping, established in the feasts of Passover, Pentecost and the Hebrew Jubilee. The last Blood Moon of the 2014-15 Tetrad also occurred at the end of a Shemita year, during the 1st week after the start of the Jubilee Year. As this is a long accepted basis in Israel for calculating these holy calendar feasts, we expect this standard to continue, not only in regular Hebrew timekeeping, but also in the events concerning the end-times. In this light it is interesting that in viewing a week of 7 years in light of current events in Biblical Astronomy when we recall there is about a 7-year period between the two paths of solar eclipses that began with the Pan American Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st, 2017, to its complimentary eclipse in the spring of 2024. This adds support to our discussion of the 49-day count between Passover and Pentecost, that forms the basis of the 7 weeks of years, leading to the 50-year Jubilee. To depict this link between days and years in Hebrew Timekeeping there is also a 2520 day period counting from Passover 2017 to Pentecost 2024.  Whether this is another intriguing temporal marker leading to the Tribulation, or one that could apply directly to it remains to be seen, but the indications are noteworthy in either case. From Pentecost 2018- 2,520 days later lands on Passover 2025 making 7/360-day years is also an eye-opener. 12   

In our day as believing members of the spiritual body of Christ, we must recognize and teach Christ’s fulfillment of the Lord’s Feasts. At the Ascension Jesus was raised to Heaven on Day 40 and 10 days later, Pentecost came the 50th day, or 7 weeks and a day from the Resurrection on Sunday. Jesus prophesied ten days before Pentecost of the the coming of the holy spirit as part of the New birth that became available first on the Day of Pentecost, [Lk. 24:37-39] when the Apostle’s first spoke in tongues, [Acts 2:1-4]. We have  the spiritual privilege to exercise these 9 manifestations of holy spirit [1 Cor. 12: 7-11] ever since as part of the New Birth package.  

Do the 1260 year periods of Jerusalem being trodden underfoot by the Gentiles foreshadow 1260 day periods in the end of days? It certainly seems likely, especially since the crux of understanding Daniel’s prophecies centers on the literalweek” of 7-days when linked to Christ, but a week of seven years when tied with the anti-Christ. The dual meaning of this week is not only found in [Gen. 29:26-28], but also with the 49-day count between Passover and Pentecost, as the basis for the 7 weeks of years forming the 50 Year Jubilee on the Hebrew Calendar. This gives us ample Biblical precedent as a key to the interpretation of these prophecies that have remained a mystery for so long. We know the future Temple will come as it is part of Biblical Prophecy just as the prior prophecies concerning the Jerusalem Temple were fulfilled in history. The future prophesied Temple must be restored before these Bible prophecies can be fulfilled.

God’s Judgment in Sieges on Jerusalem

There have been 27 sieges of Jerusalem historically [9 x 3], nine being the number of judgement, and 3 of spiritual completion. According to Bullinger’s study of Number in Scripture, he expected to find importance attached to the 10th siege [ordinal perfection] with a cycle of completion, and the 20th siege, which was the case as both of these marked the Temple’s destruction by fire. In the Hebrew Sabbath years of 586-587 BC and 69-70 AD, the sieges of Jerusalem and its Temple, first by Nebuchadnezzar, who burnt the Temple in 587-586 BC, [2 Chron. 36:17-20], and in 69-70 AD, by Titus and his Roman legions who also burnt the Temple. In both cases Jerusalem lay desolate for the next 50 years on the Jubilee Calendar. 13

Image result for titus and the abomination of desolation-historical images

Both of these historical figures relate prominently in prophecies concerning the anti-Christ, first Nebuchadnezzar whose dream of the four world kingdoms treading down Jerusalem leading to the end-times, and Titus of Rome played key roles as fore-runners of the Anti-Christ in prophecy. We will discuss this further presently. It was also expected with seven being the number of spiritual perfection, that the 7th, 14th and 21st sieges would stand out from the others. This proved to be true as these 3 each were the subject of divine prophecy. There is also a fourth siege of this group still future [28=7 x 4] and these 4 form a  structural Biblical figure of speech called an Epanados, with the first relating to the 4th; each being raised by divine inter-position, and the 2nd comparing to the 3rd in the terrible character of each. 14 See the structure below;

Epanados of the Sieges of Jerusalem. 15

A. The 7th- Sennacherib’s siege was repulsed by an angel from the Lord, in about 713 BC, [2 Chron. 32].

  B. The 14th- Antiochus IV, One of the most brutal sieges, from 170-164 BC, with an abomination desolation, [Dan.9].

  B. The 21st- Roman siege under Hadrian in 135 AD, one of the most complete, with an abomination desolation. [Lk. 19:43         -44]

A. The 28th- The anti-Christ, prophesied in the future [Zech. 14, 2 Thess. 2]. This abomination of desolation will be cut           short by the Returning Lord Jesus Christ with his saints.

Strange Trumpet Sounds & Mystery Alien Noises Coming From The Skies

Looking at Daniel’s Prophecies of the Anti-Christ and their compliments in Revelation, they each refer to a “week” period. By linking this 1 week period, [H7620], with the 42 months/1260 days [3.5 year period/time, times and dividing of a time] we observe how the one week relates to both “princes” below; the Beast and the Messiah, who shall confirm [make firm] the covenant with many for “one week”: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.” The main record linked to the “Prince” referring to both the Messiah and the beast pertaining to a “week” is set in Daniel 9:

Daniel 9:25-27
25 Know therefore and understand, {that} from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince {will be} seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troubled times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himselfand the people of the prince that will come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof {will be} with a flood [military charge], and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm [make firm] the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of Abominations [Shiqquts] he shall make {it} desolate, even until the consummation [completion], and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Jon Nessle explains how this relates to Daniel’s prophecy… of the prince;

“The first use of the word, prince, obviously is referring to the Messiah. However, the second cannot. How could the genuine Messiah destroy the city and sanctuary? So there have to be 2 different princes in this context. Just like verses 25 and 26 speak of each, verse 27 alternates between the twoJesus, the Messiah confirmed the covenant during holy week by becoming our Passover. When he was raised from among the dead, the covenant was sealed and the restitution of all things made inevitable. In the midst of that week, on a Wednesday, the Messiah caused the sacrifice and oblation to cease. When he died, the veil of the Temple tore in two from top to bottom, making the way into the holy of holies possible without any more sacrifices or offerings, because the supreme one had occurred. The other prince was Titus the future Emperor of Rome, and his army desecrated the Temple with their abominationsso just like Antiochus IV was a type of the Anti-Christ, so also was Titus. So a first Century occurrence of Daniel’s prophecy is plausible.” 16

Here in reference to Christ, the “week” is a literal 7 days, but in the future the Anti-Christ will confirm a covenant for a “week” that is 7 years. Biblically, this word [H7620] for “week” is used in both senses among other places in [Dan. 10:2-3], it is a literal week of seven days, but with the first use of [H7620] in [Gen. 29:27-28] it is a “week” of seven years. This also provides unique Biblical confirmation that the Messiah was crucified “in the midst of the week” on Wednesday-NOT “Good Friday” of religious tradition!

Over the last 2000 years the history of Blood Moon Tetrads starting in Peter’s Sermon opening the Age of Grace, [Acts 2:20] has seen a steady progression of Bible Prophecy related to Israelbeing systematically fulfilled. Jesus’ prophecies of the Jerusalem Temple’s destruction, [Matt. 24:1-2] marked with solar-lunar eclipses were fulfilled in 70′. We have seen the dispersion of the Jews around the world, as we have seen the Jews return to a reformed State of Israel in 1948-1950, also marked by a Blood Moon Tetrad1967-68 saw the 6-day war with Egypt, when Jerusalem was for the first time reclaimed under Israel’s control, since 70′, also marked by a Blood Moon Tetrad. This leads to the next step we await in the prophecies to re-build a 3rd Jerusalem Temple.

[2 Thes 2:1-4]
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

So a third Temple is coming, in fact they have just dedicated the holy olive oil and the altar for use in the third Temple in Israel. This gives us some undeniable signs to be watchful for;

a. The Third Temple Rebuilding.
b. Israel is allowed to restore their sacrifices and offerings in the Temple as part of a 7 year pact.
c. This “pact” will be organized and enacted by a future global political leader
d. This leader will break this pact in the midst of the 7 years and declare himself god seated in the Temple’s holiest. [2 Thess. 2:1-4]

As we remain vigilant for these signs and end-time events, we will not be deceived by the enemy.

Praise God!!
