Solar System Symmetry and the design pattern of the Hebrew Temple

The banner above was developed to illustrate a phi/Fibonacci relationship in our solar system between Jupiter and Saturn, relative to the Earth, reflected in the line below these planets divided according to the phi ratio. This depicts a phi relationship relative to the mean heliocentric orbits of these planets. As the planets are dispersed in their orbital paths throughout the solar system, they reflect the phi ratio. But this is only one of these relationships among many in our solar system. If it was only one or a few, disconnected incidents of phi, it could be written off to coincidence, but as we will see this is clearly not the case.

We also find relationships of the Fibonacci Series and the phi ratio in the mean sidereal and mean synodic planetary cycles, not to mention their periods of revolution and mean orbital speeds, to include inverse velocity relationships, all based on the ubiquitous phi ratio. Again these many Phi relationships on their own, might not be enough evidence to convince us of an Almighty Creator,
as the Power behind this Intelligent Design, but once each of these individual planets are seen to fit together themselves in a phi or logarithmic spiral operating as an exponential constant, organizing the entire order of our solar system, God’s Creation Symmetry becomes much more difficult to deny. This is especially true when we find the beauty of the celestial phi symphony of our solar system as
a smaller reflection, not only of the same phi spiral highlighting the rotational Symmetry of our spiral Galaxy the Milky Way, but is also inherent in other spiral galaxies of the Universe. Please check the following link, which goes into greater detail regarding these truths than I have space for here.

Plate I. The Milky Way Spiral

A musical analogy is most appropo to describe the symmetrical beauty of the phi dance of planets, not haphazardly but by design.  The basic essence of musical Symmetry is
Rhythm consisting of a regular periodic repetition of individual parts, fitting into the constitution of the symmetric whole. The proof of design is in the intelligent ordering
of these individual parts, in concert and ruled by the same phi/ Fibonacci principles governing this spiral system on a larger scale. The design of the Creator’s Symmetry is what is known as “scale-invariant.” Scientists compared “Scale invariant symmetry” to
a “stringed musical instrument that resonates with tuning forks tuned to the same base frequency, or ones that are tuned to entire octaves above or below the base frequency, but not to different frequencies.” No matter the size of the system, it is ruled by the same phi ratio at multiple levels, in a symbiotic and interconnected whole, that points to the only Conductor who is capable of directing this beautiful symphonic Creation, The One and Only Almighty God!

There are numerous examples of individual planets exhibiting the principles of the phi ratio, on their own, one can be found with Saturn and its Ring system. [https://www.goldennumber.net/solar-system/] 1

Plate 2. Saturn with Ring System

The diameter of Saturn is very close to a phi relationship with the diameter of its rings, as illustrated by the green lines. The inner ring division is in a relationship that is very close to phi with the diameter of the rings outside the sphere of the planet, as illustrated by the blue lines. The Cassini division in the rings of Saturn falls at the Golden Section of the width of the lighter outside section of the rings. 2

Taking this a step further, the phi ratio, aligned with the Creator’s Symmetry as He applied His principles of Intelligent Design in Creation, can be organized along the following lines. Music is the harmonious ordering of the temporal world, Geometry is the harmonious ordering of the spatial world, and Astronomy harmoniously orders Space-Time. The chaos that the enemy injected into God’s creation in the 1st Heaven and Earth, God restored first with the light of His own presence, then with His creation of the Sun, Moon and Stars of the firmament, whose purpose is to give light upon the earth. The order of the temporal cycles of the Sun, Moon and Stars provide the standard by which all mankind set his Sundials, Stone circles, atomic clocks, watches, and calendars, while keeping the farmers planting their crops in the proper seasons, [Gen. 8:22]. This represents the unity of space-time that God re-instituted into His Creation, repairing the damage done by the enemy. God had a unified concept of space and time long before Albert Einstein woke up to this truth in the early 20th century. To grasp this in light of the Lord Jesus Christ, and its spiritual elements, let’s look at [Heb. 1:2-3].

Heb 1:2 Hath in1909 these5130 last2078 days2250 spoken2980 unto us2254 by1722 his Son,5207 whom3739 he hath appointed5087 heir2818 of all things,3956 by1223 whom3739 also2532

made the worlds” [G165 aion] or ages of time, thus the seven spiritual administrations in God’s Timeline of History. This verse sits in the “Opening Fanfare” of Hebrews, and echoes throughout the entire book [11:3], even as God’s Spoken Words [rhema] do at the start of each of the seven Spiritual Administrations in His Timeline. Jesus as man’s Coming Redeemer, was and is God’s Eternal Purpose and Plan for the Ages, Jesus is the Agent of God’s master-plan of all spiritual history. Everything in time depended upon what JC would do to fulfill the Word of God. Thus, Jesus was and is the consummation of All Time, and is the reason he could saybefore Abraham was, I Am,” because in the Creator’s Eternal Purpose and Foreknowledge to redeem the Ages, Christ is the central character/Hero, reordering the temporal ages that the enemy had thrown into chaos.3 strong’s notes on G5481

Heb. 1:2by whom [di’ hou; Christ] He [God] made the ages”- the words di or dia’ hou are used to express agency. Dia here takes the genitive case, meaning that there were many agents rather than a sole agent by whom God re-made the ages. Jesus was the primary person by whom God was able to repair the ages that were thrown into ruin as a result of the dragon’s revolt, but it took the collective efforts of all hero’s of faith [Heb. 11] to bring it to pass. In this way, Jesus is seen as the incarnate Word of God that “frames” [G2675katartizocompletes, restores, perfects] the “ages” [G165-aion] in verse 3, thus God’s temporal order was dependent upon the believing actions of Christ as the basis of God’s plan to restore the ages.

to do with the “2nd person of the Trinity.” Jesus Christ embodies the marker or indicator of God’s redemption plan for mankind. Used in [Heb. 11:1] Faith is the substructure, or substance-a foundational Biblical premise, including temporal sensitivity [see Heb. 11:3 below]. Hupostasis is the “title deed” of believing in Heb. 11:1, the indicator that whatever we believe for is ours before we have it. 6

Heb 11:3 Through faith4102 we understand3539 that the3588 worlds165 were framed2675 by the word4487 of God,2316 so that things which are seen991 were not3361 made1096 of1537 things which do appear.5316

worlds” [G165 aion] ages of time were repaired, or set back in order by the individual spoken Words [G4487 rhema] of God. Thus we can trace the Audible Spoken Words of God at the inception
of each Spiritual Administration. Each temporal administration represents a step closer in the progression towards the total reparation of Time that was thrown into chaos by the revolt of Lucifer in the 1st Heaven & Earth. As Rom. 8:19-22 tells us in the Amplified Bible; 7

19 For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration and futility, not willingly [because of some intentional fault on its part], but by the will of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will also be freed from its bondage to decay [and gain entrance] into the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been moaning together as in the pains of childbirth until now.

The Creator’s temporal order is included in the “whole creation” of Romans 8 above, that is subject to the bondage of decay through the entropy law, which will be vanquished when the children
of God are revealed at the gathering together.

A Biblical Administration is generally defined as “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 these Biblical Administrations must remain within the bounds 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 research ‘to whom’ a particular Scripture is addressed, we must also see which Biblical administration governs the rules.” 8

Since Christ is the end of the Law, we are no longer subject to the dictates of Old Testament Law, but we live by the higher Law of the Love of God, upon which “hang all the law and commandments.” Yet the accuracy of these ordinances of heaven continue to set the standard for truth in the important areas, not only of physical but spiritual calendars and timekeeping that we continue to apply in modern times according to the perpetual Covenant of Day and Night [Jer. 33:20 -22]. This is a trait of a “mandate from heaven,” that its truth can remain applicable beyond the scope of its original Biblical Administration. [Gen. 8:22]

As Jon Nessle has taught us, with a panoramic view of all 7 Biblical Administrations or “ages” we can note the step by step progress being made spiritually as we search out the words spoken by God and His prophets at the opening of each Age.

Ultimately the union of Space-time is rooted in the unity of Sound and Light, first found in the Genesis 1, Phrase: AND GOD SAID… When God Thundered forth His Spoken Word, it was the essence of Divine Truth at the foundation of All Creation, which is found by scientists today, as a series of interconnected energy fields that vibrate coherently and on multiple levels, in the symphony of a universal harmony of matter and energy. If there is a unified field theory to be found, this will be its true Source! It is a vibrantly living ALL Truth that resonates through all levels of Creation, not some stale “information theory.” Information is neutral and devoid of the power the Creator has infused in the Word of His Truth. Science is at a loss to fully account for the coherence of repeated cosmic ratios, along with finely tuned universal Anthropic constants like the Fibonacci/ Phi/Lucas number patterns, or the constant of the Mass of the proton, which God has tuned to His energy fields in Creation to produce harmonic ratios that gave rise to the highly improbable conditions that generated life. Empirical Science will remain at a loss as long as they approach the problem from an evolutionary/materialistic context, or from a position that does not honor or acknowledge the Creator for the Work that only His Hands can accomplish. [Rom. 1:19-23].

As we inspect the order of our Solar System, some obvious questions arise. Why are the periods of Jupiter and Saturn in a 2:5 orbital ratio? Why are the periods of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in a 1:2:3 orbital ratio, and Earth and Venus in an 8:5 orbital ratio and a 13:8 period ratio?

Venus orbits the Sun in 224.695 days while Earth orbits the Sun in 365.242 days, in a ratio of 8/13 (both Fibonacci numbers) or 0.615 (roughly phi.) Thus 5 conjunctions of Earth and Venus occur every 8 orbits of the Earth around the Sun, and every 13 orbits of Venus.

Why are Mars and Jupiter locked into a 1:12 resonance, Saturn and Uranus in a 3:1 resonance, and a 2:3 resonance between Mercury’s rotational and orbital periods? In other words, why does Mercury have an 88-day year and a 59-day rotation period making its day in a 2:3 ratio with its year? When the time period of each planet’s revolution around the sun is compared in round numbers to the one adjacent to it, their fractions are Fibonacci numbers!

Plate 3. Fibonacci and Lucas Ratios and the Outer Planets

Table 4. The Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Uranus Resonances and the Fibonacci/Lucas Series

(www.spirasolaris.ca) 9

Beginning with Neptune and moving inward toward the sun, the ratios are 1/2 (Uranus: 30,688 earth days to Neptune: 60,193 earth days), 1/3 (Saturn: 10,670 to Uranus: 30,688), 2/5 (Jupiter:4,332 to Saturn:10,670), 3/8 (Ceres: 1,681 to Jupiter: 4,332), 5/13 (Mars: 687 to Ceres: 1,681), 8/21 (Venus: 225 to Mars: 687) and 13/34 (Mercury:88 to Venus: 225). These are all Fibonacci numbers in proper sequence, skipping Earth, as if the Designer of this system had foreknowledge that Earth was the vantage point from which this pattern would be observed. The influence of the Fibonacci series in the order of our Solar System, reflects how the orbital distances of the planets approximate the phi ratio.

At times we forget about the asteroids when thinking of the planets in our solar systemCeres, the largest asteroid, is nearly spherical, comprises over one-third the total mass of all the asteroids and is thus the best of these minor planets to represent the asteroid belt.  (Insight on mean orbital distances contributed by Robert Bartlett.)

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,… But this doesn’t mean Earth is haphazard. It also has an intermediate set of Fibonacci ratios of 8/13 (Earth: 365 to Mars: 687) and 13/21 (Venus: 225 to Earth: 365). There is no way arbitrary haphazard chance that can account for the precision behind this kind of mathematical and geometric order and design. This kind of design demands an Intelligent DESIGNER!

Rom. 1:18-20
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [d]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [e]manifest [f]in them, for God has shown it to them20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [g]Godhead, so that they are without excuse.

Plate 4. Solar System Periods

Due to the 13:8 ratio of Venus: Earth orbital relationship, every 8 years Venus will be almost in the same place in the sky.  It will have had 5 synodic (conjunction) periods of 583.92 days superior or inferior.  If each cycle of 5 conjunctions takes 8 years to complete, then the following complete cycle must be divisible by 5 and the year count divisible by 8. However, because of the 2.34 day difference every 8 years, the conjunctions “precess” in the reverse direction. As this data shows, the planets depict phi relationships not only in Orbital and Synodic periods, but this also implies a relationship between the Phi ratio, and the Inverse Square Law which governs both gravity and electro-magnetism. This again illustrates the unity of sound and light, because as explained by certain scientists today Gravity is a form of Sound, or Vibrational Frequency Waves, not just audible sound, which like visible light is a narrow range. We are referring to the spectrum of Sonic waves, including ELF’s (Extra Low Frequency Waves) – ULF’s (Ultra Low Frequency Waves) etc.

The Ancients it seems were aware of some of these truths, as seen in the Vesica Piscis representation wherein two over-lapping of circles shown in the ancient Vesica, the circle on the right represents the act of Creation as the Almighty spoke the Universe into being. The results of this ultimate sound wave, are witnessed in the second circle representing all that was created. As the First Cause uttered the first sound, it continues to reverberate through all creation, bouncing back, off of the created objects returning back on itself, exhibiting the order of sound resonance in symphony, with the Creator’s will, Who upholds all creation by His Word. God is represented symbolically as a Circle of Light as seen in His Covenant with Noah [Gen. 9:12-17], the number seven being the perfect standard of God’s Creation. The Circle perfectly depicts Unity, without beginning or end. In the Vesica Piscis image, the circumference of the Second Circle passes through the center of the first, as a projection and outward image of itself, or Elohim manifesting as El.

The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of God’s Voice preceded Light. The Oscillatory Frequency principle rings true, since Sound is an Energy active on a lower Scale building towards light. This is an accurate
way to grasp the Biblical principles of God’s Creation from a scientific viewpoint since based on this Oscillatory Frequency, Sound is Energy acting on a lower Scale, building towards light. As visible Light appears on the 49th Octave, it explains its Divine origin and relation. Since the Number 49 is the product of 7 X 7, it stands for each Circle of the spiral being traversed 7 times as this beautiful Light Energy was preceded by Sound with its Seven Musical Notes, before physical Light was created, with its Seven Spectral Colors.

This Oscillatory Frequency principle can also be expressed as atoms in the energy of a sound wave or vibration. This has led to the first theoretical framing of gravity in a quantum context that I am aware of, as seen in what follows. “At the atomic level, this mechanical energy vibration is known to be quantized in discrete amounts called phonons, just as an atom absorbs or emits the energy contained in the vibrations of the electromagnetic waves we call light, in discrete amounts called photons. And these phonons or “particles of sounds” just as the photons or “particles of light”, imply that the waves they belong to, propagate in discrete amounts called quanta. If a photon is a quantum of light, a phonon would be a quantum of sound. Both quanta were first believed to be massless, but up to very recently — and almost by accident — it was found that phonons do in fact carry a very small amount of mass. They are massive.”

This is no surprise, since Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2 tells us that there is an exact equivalence between energy and mass. To understand the meaning of the equation, we use the following image. Very roughly speaking, mass is confined vibration; it translates into a gravitational effect. Meanwhile, light is a propagating vibration, such that the boundary condition between propagating and confined vibration is precisely the proportional constant known as the speed of light; c, which sets the limit to the speed a mass can travel, i.e., a limit for the vibrations to remain confined, and hence exercise gravity. For this reason, electromagnetic (light) vibrations are energy carriers that remain massless in motion because they propagate at the speed of light. Since sound concerns propagating vibrations through phonons traveling slower than the speed of light, some mass is implied, even if traveling in air.”

We show that, in fact, sound waves do carry mass—in particular, gravitational mass. This implies that a sound wave not only is affected by gravity but also generates a tiny gravitational field, an aspect not appreciated thus far. Our findings are valid for nonrelativistic media as well, and could have intriguing experimental potential.”12

This new light from scientific research depicts the unity of Space-time based upon a unity of sound and light, from a quantum view, again upholding the accuracy of God’s Word, even as elements of modern science are bearing this out. The ramifications for Cause and Effect remain to be seen for this new Quantum theory of sound, but it bears watching.

The image of the Vesica Piscis, above is an expression of God speaking Creation into being, but is not limited to philosophical discourses, since it can be witnessed as we behold this pattern of Creation in the order of the Heavens.

The graphic below shows another view of the precession of the poles from the perspective of the interlocking circles of the ecliptic and Equator, at the North pole, with the fish-shaped lozenge of the vesica between them. This “vessel of the fish” is formed from the lozenge of these two over-lapping circles, of the Venn Diagram or Vesica Piscis, the center of each located on the perimeter
of the other.  Archimedes called the formula linked with this, the “Measure of the fish.” This can also be representative of Christ, who is the One mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus, [1 Tim. 2:5]. Its import to math and geometry was found in the ratio of its height to its length [153:265], and the fact that it represented the nearest whole number approximation of the square root of 3, along with the controlling ratio of equilateral triangles.11 This provides a sonic signature from which we can explore the genuine patterns of God’s voice-print of creation, and His application of mathematics and geometry in His structure and ordering of Creation.

Plate 6. The Astronomical Vesica in the Northern Skies.

celestial design of the heavens

In the act of Creation the Infinite, Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent Heavenly Father revealed some of his attributes in His Spoken, Written and Incarnate Word. We find this illustrated in the Vesica Piscis above. As the first Circle spoke the second circle into manifestation, it revealed this double circle Vesica form. These are the extreme Northern Skies, around which all creation turns, representing God’s dwelling in the Mount of the Congregation in the Sides of the North, where Lucifer desired to exalt his throne above the stars of the True God, [Isa. 14:13, Job 26:7-10]. Here resides the secret knowledge of God, that He has not yet revealed. These are some of the Mysteries that He will take eternity to reveal unto His Church in the spiritual body of Christ, [Deut. 29:29]. We can also see God’s secret and infinite Attributes under Elohim/Eloah, vs. those He shared with Christ in the Vesica and the Northern skies, vs. those He shares in Christ with the Church in the outer third of the Vesica, depicting a dynamic pattern of revelation, not only concerning God’s attributes, but also concerning precessional time of the Northern pole stars, relative to the earth’s astronomical history. As we consider the Vesica and its sacred geometry, the following root rectangles can be found within the Vesica Piscis: √2, √3 and √5.

Plate. 6 Root rectangles in the “Vessel of the fish.” 13

 The first number that we see is √2, a sacred number found in Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. The square symbolizes unity in our physical universe, √2 symbolizes duality. What really captivates our attention here is that the very pattern of the structure of the firmament conforms not only to the overlapping circles of the Vesica Piscis, illustrating the impact of the Creator thundering His Voice, leaving a permanent imprint on the order of the Heavens themselves. But to leave no doubt, we find this identical double square rectangle preserved in Scripture serving as blueprints for the Temple at Jerusalem.
Solomon's Temple

Plate 7. Square Root of Two — 1.414 : 1 — the Square. 14

The Square Side (AB)

= Sq Root of Two, 1.414
In sacred geometry, the square represents the physical world. If its side is one, its perimeter is exactly four, and its area is one square – exactly.

The diagonal of a square whose side is 1 is √2, or 1.4142135624∞. This is what is called an “irrational number.” While there are several ways to describe an irrational number, one definition is, “a decimal number that never ends, never repeats.” Never ends? That takes it to infinity (∞) – into the spiritual. So while the square represents the physical, it has within it, a connection to the spiritual. All sacred geometrical figures have this connection.

The square was found in the Holy of Holies (G,H,F,E) and the Holy Place was a double square [C,D,E,F] in the Temple showing the blueprints of a 1 x 2 rectangle of the Temple housing the Ark of the Covenant. (These dimensions are from the 1st part of Ezek. 41.) solstemp.gif

Plate 8. Jerusalem Temple Cross-section.

Solomon's Temple

 This view powerfully depicts how the Temple and Tabernacle symbolized God’s celestial design of the heavens, seen in their two altars, mirroring the two poles of the ecliptic and the Celestial Equator. This also agrees with many of the principles seen in the pattern of God’s Intelligent Design inherent in His Creation. Since the “pattern of the Tabernacle” contains the phi ratio also known as the “divine proportion” or the golden section we can see definitive Biblical evidence that this universally recognized standard of measure is truly divine in origin, since the dimensions of these sacred architectural structures were given by revelation from God to Moses and King David.

We should keep in mind that this double-square, (1x 2 rectangle) configuration of the Temple court containing the phi ratio, is also found in the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant [Ex. 25:10], along with in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. The dynamic celestial equator, the second circle secular in nature, relates to both the civil calendar year and the earthly Equator mirrored above into the heavens. The movement of the equatorial pole around the static pole of the ecliptic is what is known as the precession of the poles. The intersection points of the ecliptic and Celestial
Equator are called the equinoctial points, known as the Spring and Fall equinoxes, where
 the length of daylight is equal to the dark of night. The altar in the Holy of Holies, keeping the
Ark of the Covenant is represented in the sacred pole of the ecliptic, around which the equatorial pole moves, both wheels, inter-locked in the form of a Venn Diagram, depicting God’s personal presence among His people.

In the Old Testament, God’s presence was only accessible annually as the people obeyed the guidelines of the Law carried out by the High Priest, to cover for their sins. The pattern of eastern access, holds true not only for Solomon’s Temple of the Old Testament, but also remained intact for the latter Temple referred to in Ezekiel 43.

 By liberating the divine blueprint of the Temple and Tabernacle from a profane orientation that has served to distort its original pattern, perhaps new light can be shed upon the true Godly design and purpose hidden in these divine architectural blueprints. By allowing God’s Word to speak for itself in this important area, we introduce a fresh perspective to the field of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy, emphasizing the liberating power of adopting a genuine Biblical perspective in this meaningful area of research. This allows us to catch new glimpses of glories long hidden from astrologers and empiricists, whose practices for far too long have clouded the inherent grandeur of the Creator’s sacred architecture.

The Almighty Creator in His infinite wisdom and power built Fibonacci’s golden ratio not only in the foundation of the order of our Solar System, but in all four kingdoms of life on earth, not to mention in the design of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle. As our solar system reflects the larger order of the spiral galaxies, so they also reflect the sonic and visible spectrums of the Light of God, emerging from the sound of His spoken Voice. This proof and evidence of Intelligent Design cannot be explained by natural law or natural selection, because it does not serve any evolutionary survival value and no cause other than support for a Creator Who is the First Cause, and Deliberate DESIGNER expressing the beauty and purposes of the Works of His Hands. In order for the Musical order of the solar system to take place, all of the planets had to conform to a certain Mass in order to move in a Certain Period and Distance. If any planet had been smaller or larger than they are, the pattern could not exist. Thus here is evidence that the size of the planets was predetermined by the Creator to have the planets move in a particular Aesthetic Harmony.

Scientist Ray Tomas has developed a theory called the ‘Harmonics of the Universe’. For many years Ray Tomas had been working in business for clients, developing economic models to forecast market developments and commodities pricing. Eventually he discovered cyclic behavior in stock market prices that were harmonics of the planetary periods. He also found musical ratios in the harmonics involving fractions of 3/2, 4/3 and 2 and proportions of 4:5:6:8 that formed major cords in the musical scale. His theory now suggests that many cyclic events occurring in nature such as biological, physical, and economic cycles have harmonic frequencies that are interrelated much like the notes in music. Tomas found that many economic cycles are pure harmonics of the Sun’s rotation, like the Sunspot cycle of 11.07 years. The Sunspot cycle is the cycle in the Sun’s activity that decreases and increases in cycles culminating to a Solar Max every 11.07 years. Tomas believes that the cycles that we find in our Solar System are harmonics of even larger cycles occurring in our galaxy-the Milky Way. All galactic cycles eventually are believed to be harmonics of a single universal cosmic cycle. Even as we find with the witness of Scripture with the unity of Sound and light, and the Vedic (the language of the Vedas, an early Sanskrit form) has always explained that the universe is the result of one primordial resonating vibration, known in eastern religions as the Ohm sound of creation. In a sense it could be said that our uni-verse follows a symphony of one huge song, spoken into being by the Almighty God. 15

Another example of a related area of research in harmonic laws related to the solar system concerns Bode’s Law. When compared to the superior accuracy of the Fibonacci series, Bodes Law shows an average deviation of 15%, while the 8 planets and 2 dwarf planets of our solar system show only an average deviation of 2.75%, from the Fibonacci Series. Bode’s Law relates to the distances of the planetary orbits starting with Mercury and moving away from the Sun. As we consider each planetary orbit, related to the orbit of each planetary neighbor in the solar system, we
can observe a recurring pattern of conjunctions. This provides an innovative way to view planetary conjunctions as musical chords. These planetary observations have noted that regular recurring conjunctions between the planets, take place in cyclical periods producing chords with high accuracy in the diatonic notes of an octave.

“The numbers above the “Years line” indicate the conjunctions of each planet with the Sun and the Earth. The numbers in the Planet rows depict the number of conjunctions the planet makes with the Sun and earth in the related time periods. As Jupiter completes 11 conjunctions nearly every 12 years, so it appears on the 24th, 36th & 48th year. However, every 24 years Jupiter not only conjuncts with the Earth, but also Mercury and Venus, producing a four-planet alignment. Every 36th year Jupiter conjuncts not only the Earth again, but also the Asteroid Belt. Then again in the 48th year, Jupiter repeats its union with Mercury and Venus, completing this Octave of planetary unions,  suggesting a series of Cosmic Chords.17
The regular planetary conjunctions depicted in this chart, take place in specific time intervals and their ratios of orbital resonance reflect with high accuracy the diatonic notes of an octave. 

Because the Phi ratio is pervasive through the kingdoms of life, from the telescopic to the microscopic, it represents more than just a geometric pattern ruling life. It also lays down a pattern that life follows to reach a closer fellowship with the Creator. As with the Nautilus shell based on the numbers of an algorithmic spiral provide the ideal environs for the Nautilus at each stage of its physical growth-life, so we see this principle illustrated in the structure of the Hebrew Temple and Tabernacle. In a previous teaching called the Father of Lights, we illustrated in Gen. 1, that whenever God spoke, something wonderful resulted. The Sound of His voice is antecedent to light which we can see in the following reference:

“And God said, Let there be Light and there was Light. And God saw the Light, that it was good: and God divided the Light from the darkness.” The entrance of God’s Word always brings light, [Ps. 119:130], so as God spoke to give Light; the Sound of His voice precedes Light.

The graphic above depicts a universal musical scale based on the sonic frequencies of color and light.
The most elemental state of vibration is that of sound. Everything has an optimum range of vibration (frequency), and that rate is called resonance.

It seems that the Fibonacci series and the Phi ratio or golden section holds a unique piece of property at the perceived cross-current between science and religion, although there is more code of the Fibonacci series on the sub-atomic level in DNA than anything man has ever developed. This information did not appear by chance or out of nowhere, it was already put there by the same Designer that put His own “seal of approval” on some of the other aspects of His kingdoms of Creation, marked by the same math and geometry.

These divine ratios and proportions, being the Golden Section, Pi, Phi and others, identifies these as a conscious exercise in the laws of harmony and proportion as found in nature and in the human body, culminating in the awakening of divine consciousness in Solomon’s Temple, but even more in the Church and Spiritual body of Christ. [I Cor. 6:19, Jn. 2:21]

Ultimately, it is only the fool in his heart that says there is no God! [Ps. 14:1]

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].

Figure 1. The Celestial Sphinx as seen from Jerusalem on Sept. 14th with Jupiter-Regulus union. 2

head of a woman and body of a lion

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

Image result for mazzaroth images

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.

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!
