Biblical Astronomy of the Star of David

The Star of David is an ancient sign and symbol that predates even ancient Israel. This symbol has a wide-ranging and multi-level history, reaching into numerous cultures across the globe. Early renditions of this important symbol are found on several Cylinder Seals dating as far back as circa 2500BC, exhibited in the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin, Germany. This ancient Akkadian Cylinder Seal shows a six-pointed Star with a centered Sun/star. There is a resemblance to the Star of David in this Seal, in that it is a six-pointed star, however it does not appear to conform to overlaid equilateral triangles as is the Magen David. There exists added archaeological evidence of zodiacs from the same general time suggesting feasible Sumerian roots. As we can see in the Cylinder Seal below, The Star figure is central to the six-pointed star, encircled by 12 other planets, or stars/constellations. If this sign is not our Sun, then perhaps it could represent a shadow, or twin star of our Sun, as other bright stars are known to have like Sirius and Sirius B, for example. This could also fit with David residing in the royal throne and genealogy of Jesus Christ, as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

The Sun figure-a 6-pointed star, surrounded by 12 other celestial bodies generally fits numerous Jewish sources that depict the 12 Tribes of Israel encamped around the Tabernacle in their 40-year sojourn in the wilderness. Similar images are also depicted on the Breastplate of the High Priest, conforming to a cosmic order including 12 hours of the day, 12 months of the year, and 12 zodiacal signs. Judean tradition even depicts the 12 tribes camped around the Tabernacle in the form of a hexagram. In Figure 2 below, each point of the hexagram links to the center of six circles, around a center circle of the Tabernacle where God presented Himself to His people, encircled by the planets and the Moon, as seen below and in Figure 3.

Figure 2. Hexagram with central Sun surrounded by 5 naked-eye planets and the Moon.2

The Star of David in Figure 3 shows the hexagram interlaced with these 2 equilateral triangles, and a hexagonal center, with the Light of the world. This Star of David provides an example of a God-centered Hebrew Solar System, including also a potential systematic map of planetary conjunctions, as they occur in the 12 celestial houses of the Mazzaroth. The history books relate that a heliocentric concept of the solar system was popularized by the ancient Greeks, specifically Aristarchus of Samos in the 2nd Century BC. But this did not catch on till Copernicus in the Middle Ages. Yet we find here further evidence of a heliocentric view going back to the Star of David at least as far as 1600-1400 BC, in excavations at Gezer painted on a ceramic bowl. 3
It’s good that modern science is finally catching up to the ancient Biblical Patriarchs in certain categories of advanced thought! Of course, you won’t hear anything but scoffs and chortle’s from today’s scientific community with suggestions like this, yet it is hard to ignore the evidence of the source for these ideas. [https://star-of-david.blogspot.com/search/label/archaeology]

The Star of David (Magen David) predates Yah’shua Ha Mossiach (Jesus Christ the Messiah), by at least six centuries. The six-pointed star was used in Jewish architecture as a religious symbol of victory and protection for over 2600 years. We find Magen David‘s also prominent on synagogues, like Capernaum where Jesus taught! [Mark 1:21, Luke 4:31, John 6:59), dating from the Second Temple period, during the Messiah’s ministry.

Figure 3. Seal of Solomon with Sun-center and 5 visible planets with the Moon. 4

There is much evidence that the six-pointed star was called the Shield of David because David’s name in Hebrew was spelled Daled, Vav, Daled. If you take the first and last triangles, the alpha & omega (Daleds) of “David” and interlace them, you have the Magen David. Encircling the triangles in the Mazzaroth joined in the first and last signs of Virgo/Leo-forming the Sphinx, as the unifying symbol in the context of the planetary unions in our solar system, including the Jupiter-Saturn series. The Star of David has also been used to diagram the seven days of the Creation week, and the Sabbath as a foundation in Hebrew and world timekeeping. In the graphic below, we find an example of how the hexagram has been used to diagram Bible truths, for example in Genesis 1:1, among many others. 5

Here are some other Bible verses where the Star of David pattern fits the verse as above…
[Gen. 14:19, 22, 27:39, Ex. 20:4, 11 Deut. 4:39, 5:8, 10:14, 30:19, Josh. 2:11, 2 Sam. 2:10, 22:8, 1 Kgs. 8:23, 27, 1 Chron. 21:16, 29:11, Ezra 5:11, Ps. 50:4, Ps. 57:5-11, 85:11, 102:19, 103:11, Ps. 113:4 to 115:16, Ps. 121:2 to 124:8, Prov. 25:3. Isa. 24:21, 44:23, 51:6, 55:9-10, 65:17.] Note the Bookends of the verses in Blue.

The following info comes from Leo Tavares, and his website Mathematical Monotheism. Since the Hebrew Alphabet is alpha-numeric, where every letter has a number value, below Tavares has charted the numerical values of the Hebrew words in Genesis 1:1. 6

Genesis 1:1

In the Beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.

Regarding the number 37, Tavares notes that “for the sum of the Fibonacci numbers indexed to the first 37 decimal digits of Phi, after the decimal point=401. This shows a link between Pi and Phi ratios, previously illustrated in various blog posts. Not only does the center word of value of Genesis 1:1, stand out as its only Prime Word value, it stands out as its shortest word, made up of the first and last letters of their alphabet; the Aleph and Tav. Since the Almighty God-Creator is fittingly set in the center of these seven words in Gen. 1:1, like both the Menorah between the other 6 candles, [Rev. 1:20] and the Star of David with the center hexagon of the six-pointed star, this also reveals an internal code of mirror symmetry in Gen. 1:1, that the sum of the prime factors of the words to the left of 401, yields the same value of the prime factors to the right of 401. 7 This also shows the Almighty God at the center of the Hebrew Scriptures in the Alpha verse of all of God’s written Word, as the Creator of all the material world inside the universe, as well as the spiritual world outside of it.

Building on this, Tavares posits the PHI STAR OF GENESIS 1:1 -based on the numerical value of Gen. 1:1 [2701] is the 37th regular hexagonal number, and hexagons/hexagrams are naturally related, Tavares placed the order of the 37 Fibonacci numbers, derived from the first 37 decimal digits of Phi, after the decimal point, in the form of a hexagram where these numbers total 401, seen below in Figure 4. 8

Figure 4. PHI STAR OF GENESIS 1:1

This shows the link between Genesis 1:1 and the number 37 is active with both Prime and Fibonacci numbers. We can see this also in the sum of numbers at the numbers in the apex triangle points of this Phi Star of Gen. 1:1, totaling 37. [8+13+1+13+2+0] 9

Added examples of sacred Phi geometry are found in the banner below, depicting a Phi relation between the orbital speeds of Earth and Jupiter-Saturn. As the planets move anti-clock wise around the ecliptic viewed from Earth, Jupiter’s orbital speed is in a Phi relation to the slower Saturn, shown in the banner below seen from the Earth. This shows added evidence of the Phi ratio order in our solar system.

history of abraham

We have shown extensively on our website and blog series the impact of the Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in Biblical history, in the astronomical markings of the birth of Abram, the birth of Moses, finally leading up to the birth of Christ. For all intents and purposes, this planetary conjunction cycle could be considered a major aspect of what I have termed the “Celestial Prelude” in describing the celestial signs marking the general and specific periods to mark the birth of Christ. Biblical history shows that the deliverer of Israel and the world, would come from the Seed of Abraham, and deliver Israel as the forerunner Moses did.

With The Star of Bethlehem, we are told that the Jupiter-Saturn unions carry a lot of  weight: In his Commentary on DanielAbarbanel {1437-1508} wrote that conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces signified not only the most important events but also events which referred especially to IsraelThe Rabbi argued that as the conjunction had taken place three years before the birth of Moses, an event which heralded the first deliverance of Israel, so it would also precede the birth of the Messiah and the final deliverance of Israel… What would Saturn, Jupiter and Pisces signify to the Magi astrologers? As New Testament scholar Raymond Brown points out, we cannot be sure how the Jews in the time of Jesus made their zodiacal calculations. The same scholar, however, goes on to say that ‘Pisces is a constellation sometimes associated with the last days and with the Hebrews, while Jupiter, an object of particular interest among Parthian astrologers, was linked with the world ruler and Saturn was identified as the star of the Amorites of the Syria-Palestine region’. The claim has been made that this conjunction might have led Parthian astrologers to predict that there would appear in Palestine among the Hebrews a world ruler of the last days, an apocalyptic king.10

Below we find depicted the Trigon of the Great Conjunction cycle by Johannes Kepler. He used this diagram to calculate the precession of the equinoxes based on the conjunction cycle of Jupiter-Saturn, as these giants of our solar system marked the opening of a new precessional age nearly every 2160 years, as they approach the vernal equinox. This triangular sequence of conjunctions and oppositions is completed in 60 years, as these 2 gas giants unite every 20 years, in an ongoing planetary union series. As each conjunction appears in a triplicity, that forms the triangular planetary union over 60 years, they transition to the next as seen in Figure 7, where the following Jupiter-Saturn union shifts to the earthly triplicity of Virgo.

Figure 5. the Trigon of Great Conjunctions. [Kepler 1606] 11

Johannes Kepler, made a detailed study of the moving geometry of the sky, represented the periods of the planets by geometric figures with values based on the fundamental divisions of the circle into four, six and twelve sections measuring 90º, 60º and 30º. He made a model that related the five Platonic solids to the planetary orbits, where the cube occupied the space between the orbits of Saturn and Jupiterand the tetrahedron between Jupiter and Mars. Since then many mind-boggling mathematical relationships have been discovered between the planets’ cycles, sizes and distances from each other, as well as their speed and axis inclinations, and even their rates of spin. These findings point to the presence of an Intelligent designer of the universe. They prove that, rather than evolving randomly, the Sun together with the planets and their moons form a unified, living system of the first order and elegance. 12

Figure 6. The Elements of the Star of David. 13

The graphic above depicts the Green triangle as earth, the Yellow triangle as air, the Blue Triangle as water, and the Orange Triangle as Fire, all unified in the Jupiter-Saturn series of conjunctions, in the central Star of David, as they make their way through the Mazzaroth, navigating these elemental celestial signs corresponding to earth, air, fire, water and ether.
The graphic in figure 7 below shows accurate values: in a tropical system, there will be 10 or 11 conjunctions, and in a sidereal system 11 or 12. Figure 7 below shows this visually, in a tropical system.

Figure 7. Eleven tropical mean conjunctions in the fiery triplicity. 14

Figure 6: Eleven tropical mean conjunctions in the fiery triplicity

Every mean conjunction advances by 242° 58′ 32″ of the circle, or 2° 58′ 32″ in the actual degrees of the signs. If conjunction #1 is at of a sign (here, Aries), then #2 will be at about 2° 58′ 32″ of Sagittarius, #3 at 5° 57′ 04″ Leo, and so on, always moving in a clockwise motion. But then #11 will be at 29° 45′ 20″, the last of the triplicity: the next conjunction will be a triplicity shift into the earthy triplicity, at 2° 43′ 52″ Virgo.

For Plato the five geometric solids called the Platonic Solids corresponded to the elements earth, water, air, fire and ether. The numbers and shapes have a qualitative as well as a quantitative dimension, which have been neglected in modern times.

Kepler viewed the planetary order along the lines of the “Music of the Sphere’s,” unifying the basis for the outer and inner planets. We see this in a geometric harmony of the solar system, with the orbits of the gas giants; Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Figure 8 below depicts the outermean and inner orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter using an equilateral triangle and an octagram.

This is also a way of illustrating the structure of the musical Octave, with an eight-pointed star that halves or doubles the wavelengths or frequencies of the musical scale, with an equilateral triangle inscribed inside a circle, with 1/2 the diameter of its outer circle, seen in Fig. 8.

Figure 8. Geometric orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter. 15

Image result for Jupiter-Saturn Geometry

The geometry of this diagram not only depicts the musical order of these outer solar system planets, but since Jupiter and Saturn’s orbits are in the proportion of 6:11 to 99.99% accuracy, this is the octave or double of the 3:11 Moon to Earth ratio, to 99.9% accuracy, revealinggeometric harmony and mirror symmetry between the outer and inner planets. This 3:11 earth-moon proportion is also shared by two of our planetary neighbors, Mars and Venus, to 99.9% accuracy. Upon closer inspection 3:11 is 27.3%, and the Moon orbits the earth every 27.3 days, showing the harmonious pairing of the Earth and Moon. 16

So when the size of the Moon is compared to the Earth, in the figure below, the circle through the center of the Moon is equal to a circumference of the perimeter of the Square enclosing the Earth. This Square also embodies the base of the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, whose apex touches the circle in the center of the Moon. 17

See the source image

The geometric order of the outer planets is further uncovered in the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn. The basis of the geometry of the six-sided star of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions is uniquely found in the hexagon construct at the north pole of the planet Saturn, [Fig. 9]. In this graphic we are beholding the amazing basis of the geometric pattern of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction cycle.

Figure 9. The Hexagram shaped North Pole of Saturn.Image result for hexagonal pattern at saturn's pole-images

If the six points of the hexagram or star tetrahedron are encircled in a sphere and if we add the planetary oppositions to the geometry of Jupiter-Saturn unions, the six-pointed star is formed, on a basis of the hexagram, as seen below in the upper and lower left corners of Figure 10. This graphic depicts the downward-pointing triangle of the hexagram with Jupiter at the upper right and Saturn at the low point of the triangle. The hexagon forms the corner-stone of the six-pointed “Star of David” mapping the unions of Jupiter-Saturn below. In May 2010 the last opposition stage in the current sixty-year cycle was reached, with Jupiter in Pisces opposing Saturn in Virgo. 18

When mapped, the progress of these grand conjunctions through the zodiac describes a series of equilateral triangles (Fig. 5). Every 60 years a triangle is completed, and
the planetary union returns to start, shifting however nine degrees anticlockwise in respect to its predecessors, thus forming a cycle of 800 years. Each 200 years the triangles shift to the next 
elements. From 1226-1425 they occurred in air signs, 1425-1603 in water, 1603-1802 in fire, and from 1802 to 2000 in earth20 

Biblical Astronomy perspective, provides view of planetary cycles of Jupiter-Saturn appearing in various zodiacal constellations around the ecliptic, noting the Biblical symbolism of each sign, combined with the planetary symbolism and Bible numerics to ascertain the meaning of these movements, in the context of Precessional and Biblical ages with sacred Geometry principles like the Phi, Pi and Lucas ratios, as found in the solar system and Great Pyramid. This includes categories of  Heavenly SignsHebrew Feast and holy days, and Jubilee cycles, among other considerations.

Another application of the Star of David pattern of overlapping triangles is found in the dual ministries of the Messiah as the Priest/King. This is a powerful symbol for Jesus as the Son
of David, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root and offspring of David. [2Pet.1:19, Rev.22:16]. One example of these unified ministries of the King and High Priest is found
in the Gospel of John record [John 10:22-30];

Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area in Solomon’s Colonnade. The Jews gathered about him, saying, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

Jesus answered“I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father’s name speak for me, but you do not believe because you do not belong to my flock. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:22-30)

Two separate hints are given in this passage: 1) Jesus was in the temple area of Solomon’s Colonnade; and 2) he referred to his flock which means he was reminding his listeners that he is a Shepherd, in the same occupation as his forefather, King David. The image of the star of David is implied, that on another level symbolizes the joining together of the dual roles of king and high priest.

In the graphic below we have a geometric version of a six-petalled flower, called the Seed of Life in sacred geometry. Like the Pomegranate, these flowers are said to be the natural version of the Star of David in the Flower kingdom. The geometric pattern below is obtained by drawing 6 same-sized circles, that partially overlap each other, similar to the Vesica Pisces. If we look closely we can see the pattern of the Star of David within these circles also, that form the flower. In the overlapping circles on the top and bottom of this image, their common lozenge is divided in half by the inner circle surrounding the flower. These embody the upper and lower apex’s of the interlocking triangles, while the adjacent triangles provide the base angles of each triangle.

The pomegranate flower provides the ideal natural six-pointed star which may be one of the reasons it is found on the Ephod of the High Priest. They were found on the Hem of the Priest’s Ephod; his ceremonial robe that was worn while he ministered in the Tabernacle and Temple of Israel, [Exod. 28:31-35]. The pomegranates were alternated between small golden bells on the lower hem of the Ephod, which also held the High Priest’s Breastplate. This displayed fruitful works of the High Priest in his ministry. King Solomon was also said to have designed his crown based on a six-pointed star pattern of this sacred flower of the pomegranate. Here is a wonderful example of the dual ministries of our King and High Priest Jesus Christ who is the only perfect minister and our perfect redeemer, that we follow and obey as the head of our Spiritual body in his Church.

An added intriguing element is found as we consider how the 12 gems on the Breastplate link both to the 12 star-signs of the Mazzaroth, and the 12 tribes of Israel; this link takes you to an accurate account of how the tribes match their proper constellations. As the Star of David geometric structure also has 12 sides, as seen in the mid-lower row of Figure 10 above, we find a specific means whereby the conjunction series of Jupiter-Saturn, that marked the births of key Patriarchs leading to Christ, may have also provided an astronomical check and balance to the Urim and Thummim, also held in a pouch in the High Priest’s Breastplate.

As we walk in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ, rejoicing more and more as His Day approaches, in the resounding and reverberating truths of the Hope of Christ’s Return, we will stand together as super-conquerors in the Lord into eternity.

Timeline of Celestial Signs with Comet 323P/Soho

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

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

Figure 1. Comet 323P/Soho sighted from the ground by Man-To Hui on 12/21/20. 2

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

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

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

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

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

Figure 3. Jupiter-Saturn and the Moon in Sagittarius, 6-24-20. 6

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

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

Figure 4. Eclipse Comet during Totality, photo taken Nov. 1st 1948, Bob Atkinson. 7

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

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

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

6/5/20 Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sagittarius-the hunter carrying the victory wreath.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Resurrection Saturday Everyone!

Comments Off on The Year of the Comet 323P/Soho

 

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

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

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

Conjunction

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

Venus-Mercury Conjunctions of 2014

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

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

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

As there were three Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple union of Jupiter-Venus aligned with Regulus in Leo, reflects a similar spiritual light in 2015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly sign: the [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on Sept. 17th, 2015 is announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo above Spica/Al Zimach, 2 years in advance of the repeat of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017! This was not all, as there were more heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus after this, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[Gen. 49:9-12]. 9 Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him? 10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people. 11 Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey’s colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes. 12 His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As there were 3 Jupiter-Venus Conjunctions marking the Rev. 12 birth signs of Christ in 3-2 BC, so this triple alignment of Jupiter-Mars, & Venus in Leo with Regulus, reflects similar spiritual light in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 20142015. In fact the Rev. 12 heavenly sign: the [Sun clothing Virgo with the Crescent Moon at her feet] on September 17th, 2015 is announced by Mercury-Gabriel located just outside the womb area of Virgo, united with Spica/Al Zimach, on this day-2 years ahead of the rewind of the Great Wonder in Heaven, on Sept. 23rd 2017!  There were however more heavenly signs involving Jupiter-Venus in the next 2 years, leading up to the birthing of Jupiter in retrograde motion in Virgo’s womb in 2017. As these signs linked to the signs marking Christ’s Birth and the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, also hold significance for the Hebrew Temple, it is wise to stay watchful of events involving the prophesied appearance Third Hebrew Temple in Jerusalem.

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

God Bless!!

Comments Off on The Triple union of Venus, Mercury and Jupiter with the Moon Feb. 2021

Witness of the Great Pyramid in Job 38 and Rosh Hashanah, [Part 1b].

In Part 1a of this blog in July 2020, we noted how the Celestial signs marking the birth of Christ took place in the two years between 3-1 BC, marked previously by a series of signs in 5 BC. along with the Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunctions of 7-6 BC.  We find similar patterns in the signs of Sept. 2017, as they were presaged 2 years earlier with similar Heavenly signs in 2015. It is fitting that we should recognize these signs of Christ’s birth in this month’s September blog, in light of the 19th anniversary of 9-11-2001, which took place also on the date of the birth of Christ, on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. This also fits with the Rosh Hashanah Feast this month on the Hebrew Calendar, that also arose with the August-Sept. 2017 signs. This month’s blog links the key content of Job 38 to prominent activities of the Dog-Star Sirius related to Orion, and the Bibilical truths that emerge from Job, the oldest book in Biblical canon.

The celestial scenario described in Job 38:12-15 coincides with a regular celestial event that was also delineated in some of the oldest texts in history, known in ancient Egypt as the Pyramid Texts. These Pyramid Texts, said to date from at least 2300 BC, actually describe an observable stellar event witnessed before 3000-2000 BC: the crossing of the Sun disc on the Milky Way, moving eastwards reaching the zodiacal constellation of Leo at the time of the summer solstice, while the star Sirius rose heliacally at the start of the Nile flooding (the date of this conjunction was circa 2780 BC). The prominence of the Sun in Leo at the summer solstice on the eastern horizon while Sirius is at a low point on the horizon, symbolically reflects a juxtapositon of spiritual power as we will see. Annually, the rising of Sirius took place since antiquity, documented in the 7th month of the Hebrew Calendar on Aviv 28, during the Barley harvest in Israel.1 In many ancient star religions of the world, the star Sirius was considered the Sun behind the sun, or the spiritual light behind the physical light of the illusory material world. This was reflected in ancient Egypt as the star Sirius identified with Isis the female goddess with Osiris and Horus of the Egyptian trinity.

The mathematician and historian of scientific thought Otto E. Neugebauer explains the ancient Egyptian system of decans in his 1969 text, The Exact Sciences in Antiquity. His description is fascinating and eye-opening, for those attuned to the system of knowledge encoded in the constellations and heavenly cycles in the Star Myths of the world.

“Professor Neugebauer details how the heliacal rising of selected stars located along the zodiac band would help observers in ancient Egypt [Heliopolitan priests] to know when the dawn would be arriving at any given time of the year.

Just prior to sunrise, as the eastern sky begins to grow lighter and lighter (from deep velvet black to dark blue to lighter and lighter blue), stars arising high enough above the horizon to be briefly observed were soon  swallowed up by the light of the rising day-star. [Job 38:11-16]

This is the phenomenon known as the “heliacal rising” of a star. As the earth proceeds on its orbit, a star will get further and further “ahead” of the sun, so that it is above the horizon for longer and longer portions of the night (or early morning) before the day-star arises and drowns out the stars.

Next, Professor Neugebauer explains that the Egyptians called the star in its “heliacal rise” as the decan for that particular ten-day stretch each year. But, as it rises a bit earlier and earlier, it will be higher and higher in the eastern sky when the sun finally rises — which means that eventually a new star below it will be the star of heliacal rise at that time, and the previous decan will retire from the role until next year:

It is this sequence of phenomena that led the Egyptians to measure the time of night by means of stars (or groups of nearby stars) which we now call decans.” 3

In the idolatrous star religion of ancient Egypt, they believed the “sun behind the sun” or the parent sun would align with the dog-star Sirius, and one of the alignments built into the Great Pyramid star shafts reflected this so that the light of the Dog-star aligned with the Queen’s chamber star shaft at the construction epoch of the Pyramid. Any discussion of the construction rationale of the Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, includes many elements, but one of the key influential theses has been the so-called “Orion Correlation Theory,” which appears to have inspired the Pyramid ground pattern for the format of the three major Giza Pyramids. This theory says the three stars of Orion’s belt provided the pattern for the layout of the 3 primary Giza Pyramids, which includes the smallest pyramid Menkaure, and its offset location from the axis of the two greater Pyramids, as seen in Figure B below.

Could there have been a preexistent master-plan for the Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, precluding the massive Pharonic egos required to expend the effort, time and resources needed to build these monumental edifices to glorify the persons and reigns of these Pharaohs, assumed in the “Tomb Theory” of the Giza Pyramids? Even Pyramid scholars and historians going back centuries who believed the Pyramids were sepulchures, agree that there is no proof of anyone ever entombed in the Great Pyramid. In fact, the only part of the Great Pyramid that resembles a coffin is found in the King’s Chamber, at the top end of the Grand Gallery, is lidless, missing a royal inscription or ornamental insignia, unlike other coffers made for a king. But it is the dimensions of this unique “coffer” that just happen to match the cubic capacity of the Ark of the Covenant in the Temple and Tabernacle of Isreal, built centuries prior to Israel’s captivity in Egypt, long before the Ark’s dimensions were revealed by God, to Moses on Mt. Sinai, that enthrall us. This not only, shows the divine source of revelation for both the Great Pyramid and the Ark of the Covenant, but also links the two in Christ, of whom the Great Pyramid witnesses to [Isa. 19:19-20] and who symbolizes the Covenant with the Jews and Gentiles as he embodies the Passover Lamb, and perfect sacrifice of all mankind. Beyond this, the amazing lidless granite coffer encodes other sacred measures that could only be known by the Almighty Creator. When for example, we take double the perimeter of this Granite Coffer, multiplied by 10 to the 8th power, we get the mean radius of the Sun; [427, 316 miles]. Also, the Great Pyramid’s height multiplied by 10 to the 9th power=the Earth’s mean solar orbital radius, or the average distance between the Earth and Sun, [91,848,500 miles]. 4 As Jesus embodies the Pyramid’s capstone as the light of the world-[the Sun in Ps. 19] he enlightens the Earth with all its inhabitants and life systems.

This juxtaposition of spiritual powers are none other than The Almighty Creator and Father of Lights as opposed to the prince of darkness. These ultimate forces of good and evil are revealed for those with eyes to see in the 38th chapter of the Book of Job, which is a primary topic in this month’s blog. An aspect of these contending powers is seen clearly in the decan Orion, in its brightest belt star Al Nitak. Recently, we found Al Nitak exactly on the meridian, at dawn the morning before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. In this blog we link the astronomical context of Job 38 not only to stellar observations in ancient Egypt, but the aforementioned scenario with the Feast of Trumpets 2017, also. The star Al Nitak is critical for one reason in the Orion Correlation Theory, since it mirrors the location of the Great Pyramid while the other two stars of Orion’s Belt also align with the two other main Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, seen in Figure B, above. With Al Nitak’s focus on the Great Pyramid, it also calls our attention to the Great Pyramid star shafts, since the Great Pyramid is the only edifice with multiple star shaft and passage alignments built into its structure, as we find in Figure C. below.

Figure C. Great Pyramid Passage Alignments on Rosh Hashanah 2017. 6

Daniel Matson reminds us about the all-important implications of the Christ angle. 7 At the moment Al Nitak is at meridian, Leo is in the east, [Celestial Sphinx] but more importantly the King star Regulus is precisely at the inclination of the Christ angle, aligned with the Ascending passage of the Great Pyramid in Fig. C. Thus, the Christ angle not only aligned with Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, [geographically] but also bisects Regulus [astronomically]. This draws our attention to the activities at the birth of Christ in Bethlehem in 3 BCConcurrent with this Ascending Passage alignment, we also have a Descending Passage alignment in the Pyramid, with Jupiter, the King Planet in Virgo, providing the elements of the Celestial Sphinx, as seen at Christ’s Birth. The year 2017 is the first year according to Matson, that Rosh Hashanah comes immediately after September 20th—when Al Nitak hits meridian precisely at dawn, while Regulus hits the Christ angle. 8

This shows Al Nitak as the wounded one-the suffering Lord making his sacrifice opposed to the coronation of the King star Regulus, in glory; foreshadowed in the Jupiter-Regulus triple conjunction near Christ’s birth. In this unique manner, the Great Pyramid points out the Jupiter-Regulus union of 3BC, with Christ angle alignments of it’s Ascending and Descending Passages, which we will see in greater detail later! The next years this alignment occurs are 2028 [2K year anniversary of Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection], and 2047- the 100 year anniversary of Isreal as a state. 9

head of a woman and body of a lion

We find these landmarks 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.”11 Virgo’s head is seen in Fig. D, just below & adjacent to the star Denebola in the tail of the Lion, unifying the circle of the zodiac. The Sphinx also unifies and establishes the Biblical canonical order of God’s written revelation, in the Bible’s earliest book of Job.

In analyzing the positioning of the stars, moon, and sun at the time of September 20, 2017, there was an added passage alignment in the Pyramid with Venus in conjunction with Regulus at this time. Venus, the “Morning Star” was at this moment, aligned with Leo’s “King Star,” precisely at the Christ angle. 12 This tells us the position of the Morning Star’s authority in the First Heaven and Earth, included in the seat at God’s Right Hand over the angel’s. This is only part of the current authority inherited in the Lordship of Christ seen in the King star-Regulus, the ascendant Bright and Morning Star. [Revelation 2:28, 2 Peter 1:19]

At the dawn of Rosh Hashanah 2017, Jupiter was at the precise Christ angle in the opposite scenario as the day before. Jupiter is below the horizon at 26.3 degrees. Instead of the Sun just starting to break the horizon, the sun’s disk is fully risen, still on the horizon. In Matson’s words “this event is truly prime of the morning before Rosh Hashanah. So Rosh Hashanah is directly linked to this incident of the Christ angle. On New Year’s Day for Kings, the planet of the Messiah (“His star” of the Magi) is at the angle as reflected in the Great Pyramid. It is truly the dawn of a new era. (It can also be looked at in another way. Jupiter [King Planet] will be at the Christ Angle in the western sky at the announcement of Rosh Hashanah the evening of September 20.)13 Just as at Christ’s birth, when Jupiter the King planet crowned Regulus the King star in a triple union starting 3 days after Christ’s birth in 3 BC, fore-shadowing the king’s coronation in glory. This reference to Christ’s glory in his Second Coming is certainly the subject of these signs, but since the celestial signs precede the events, we are directed to the replay of these celestial signs in 2028.

If a star navigator program is available, set it to Cairo (or more precisely to the Great Pyramid) for 5:42:24.333 am, on September 20, 2017 as Matson says to verify it. This is very precise and a day either way will put the scenario out of alignment in every way. But as will be seen later, there are more alignments to discuss to demonstrate the fact that the Pyramids are the products of planning by the true God who is beyond time and space.

We find here in Job’s Biblical reference to Orion, the 2nd of three in Job [9:9, 38:31] also [Amos 5:8], evidence showing Orion’s initial prominence as the figurative light of heaven. If Orion’s link to Sirius (the Dog-star) is completed, then we find the stars of Orion’s belt symbolizing Lucifer’s choral units of angels under his domain, girt about his loins. This description of Orion’s loins figuratively resembles the portrait of the king’s glory in Ezek. 1:26-28. Lucifer as the angel of light in his first estate, had dominion over the angels in the dawn of time. Once Lucifer fell, his role at God’s right hand as the “light of heaven” was stripped from him and held in abeyance, to be transferred and superseded in the rising of the daystar, who washed out the brilliance of the fallen morning star with his own Sunrise, symbolized in the Heliacal Rising of Sirius.

Matson’s primary error was using this data to predict the return of Christ on the dates of these signs in 2017. His theory stated that 2017 was the year for the start of the Great Tribulation, with the start of The Covenant on Nov. 19, 2017 so that 2,520 days are allowed until the Day of Atonement 2024. 14

Christ’s first coming was for sacrifice and death, which makes sense if it is the descending passageway, symbolizing the grave, but Christ rose from the grave conquering death for us all, as seen in the empty coffer in the Great Pyramid’s King’s Chamber.

We should also recall the Great Sphinx aligned above the eastern horizon, with Leo the lion. This alignment scenario with Orion at meridian, embodies Christ’s sacrificial sufferings with Leo the constellation of (the conquering Lion) in the east, in his glory. This serves to introduce us to the fascinating study that pulls together key elements from the ancient past with modern times, pointing to the birth and Return of Christ. By including the Sphinx’ eastern alignment in Leo and the Sun with the star Sirius in Heliacal rising, we find another image of the juxtaposition of the ascendant and fallen morning stars, as seen in Job 38.

In the history of ancient astronomy, and the heliacal rising of Sirius in particular, was sighted by the astronomer-priests of Heliopolis in very early dynastic times of ancient Egypt. It is not unreasonable to suppose, however, that observations began several centuries before the dynastic periods, even perhaps as far back as 5000 BC, as was shown by Jane B. Sellers for example, which agrees with the incept dates of the Great Sphinx. Thus we can adopt this remote date as a ‘common prototype’ for religious ideologies later formulated in the Pyramid Texts and, much later, in various astronomical texts. Herbert Lockyer was also well known for his early Egyptian studies and their knowledge of the precession of the equinoxes, as seen in the Dendera ZodiacLockyer believed that the Temple at Dendera was probably “rebuilt at least three times since 3733 BC; once in the reign of King Pepi I, [which Lockyer dates at 3233 BC] again by Thothmes III in 1600 BC, and finally by the Ptolemies about 100 BCAccording to Lockyer, the temple may have been previously directed at the star Dubhe, which ceased to be circumpolar about 4000 BC, and before that at gamma Draconis, that ceased to be circumpolar about 5000 BC.” 15

At that epoch the heliacal rising of Sirius (as seen from Heliopolis) took place near the 18 July Julian (2 weeks after summer solstice). At this time the sun was just entering Leo, the Lion constellation, and also that this constellation was fully risen, floating just above the NorthEastern horizon as this graphic of the sky shows in Skymap 2, below. 16 This is the sky imagery that was replayed on 9-23-17 in Leo with Sirius low and adjacent on the horizon also.

 Skymap 2: Eastern sky view just before dawn on 18 July c. 5000 BC as seen from Heliopolis at time of the Heliacal Rising of Sirius. Very few, if any have considered at all, the implications of Job 38:12-15 in regards to this heliacal rising of Sirius. As we include background research on these scriptures, we will review the work of Aron Pinker, whose work details a thorough literature review on this section of Job.

According to the abstract of Aron Pinker’s research analysis of Job 38:12-15, 17

“Exegetes usually approach vv. 12-15 from two different perspectives: the cosmological and the terrestrial. Some believe that this strophe alludes to astronomical bodies, which are visible in the morning and fade as the light brightens. Most view the strophe as describing the breaking of a new day, and the effect that the growing illumination has on the visibility of Earth’s features and the activity of the wicked upon it.”18

In Pinker’s literature review of this topic, he includes the views of various Biblical texts and theologians, of which we will note some of the principal contributors, along with my own selected input in Blue.

“Job 38:12-15
is the third strophe in God’s first response to Job (38:1-40:2). It appears after the strophe that describes the world’s creation (vv. 4-7), and the strophe that deals with divine control of the unruly waters (vv. 8-11).1   The third strophe deals with God’s description of the breaking of a new day on earth.”19

Although Pinker recognizes the general contextual structure of Job 38, he does not elaborate, and in this case, since the context is very supportive in unlocking the truths of this record, we will illustrate these points in greater detail. The general structure of Job 38 is built around God’s rhetorical questioning of Job, starting in Job 38:4;

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understandingWho hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon itWhereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or Who laid the cornerstone thereofWhen the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? [KJV]

Bullinger tells us that Job’s 38th Chapter has the most questions [40] when compared to all other chapters in the Bible. And Job as a Book has the most questions of any other Book of the Bible. 20 This is the Figure of Speech called Erotesis, or Interrogation.

The Almighty is making it clear that not only was He the only one around in and before the inception of all things, but doubtlessly, He was the Only One capable of laying the foundations of the earthOnly the Almighty Creator has the wisdom and power to bring the Earth into existence, out of nothing according to its unique standard of dimensions, and measurements which are all encapsulated in the Great Pyramid, like no other building in history. The earth’s dimensions contained in the model of the Great Pyramid include the numbers and specifications of the distance to the Sun, its mean radius, along with the mean radius of the earth’s orbit around the Sun. The Weight of the Pyramid is reflective of the earth’s mass, and its orientation to the stars reflecting the principles of Biblical Astronomy, and the design of the universe and our solar system, that only God could know. These are only a few of the ways that the Great Pyramid was built to embody our unique planet, that not only support the truths of the Almighty Creator as the only Source for all this Omniscient wisdom and Omnipotent power, but state the case with such force that no other plausible options comprehensively account for this state of affairs. This is upheld  in the next rhetorical question in v.5who hath stretched the line upon it?” The stretching the line or cord ceremony is found in ancient Egyptian texts going back to the First Dynasty, showing an astronomical essence to this ceremony that defined the axis of a new temple, or in this case, the Great Pyramid, which was derived from the alignment of the Great Pyramid to the North pole star Thuban-in Draco at the time of the Pyramid’s construction.

Since this ceremony defined the axis of the Great Pyramid, which is the most accurately oriented building in history, being aligned to true North with only 3/60 degree of error, which is incredible considering the Great Pyramid weighs nearly 6 million tons, with a footprint of 13 acres! 21 This definition of the astronomical axis of the Pyramid is what allowed the accurate placing of the 4 base cornerstones, which not only bear the foundations of the Great Pyramid, but also the earth’s foundations. This answers God’s rhetorical question to Job in v. 6 “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?” The truth that the Pyramid’s cornerstones were founded upon measurements derived from the Northern pole star at that time-Thuban of Draco tells us who was the astronomical center of Creation, embodied in Lucifer as the first Morning Star, and the archangel over all the choirs and cohorts of heavenly angels, who led them in songs of Praise in honor and worship of the Almighty in the First Heavens and Earth, [2Pet. 3:3-7]. Naturally, this refers to v. 7, where the morning stars sang together, with Godly designed and unified voice and purpose, referring to the lost glory of the fallen archangel’s first estate

The most incontrovertible evidence we have however, that we are indeed discussing the Great Pyramid here is found in v. 6 where God asks Who laid the cornerstone thereof? It is this singular stone, which is ultimately defined and embodied in Christ, that caps off the Great Pyramid and unifies the four cornerstones at the Pyramid’s base. Only the unique structure of a Pyramid has a fifth cornerstone at its pinnacle, which unifies and aligns the rest of the structure. This capstone was originally found in Lucifer when angels were the only created life forms apart from Almighty God Himself. But once iniquity was found in Lucifer, he was cast out of his favored seat at God’s right Hand, along with those angels he deceived. Now it is Jesus Christ who is the Chief Cornerstone, [Eph. 2:20] as the head of the spiritual body of his Church. [Heb. 1-2]

 

So as there are opposite Christ angles, it appears that the Pyramid and the Great Sphinx are maps of this event, [Celestial Sphinx]. This is evident because both the head of the woman-Virgo, and the body of the Lion-Leo forming the Sphimx are marked specifically by the Christ Angle built-into the Great Pyramid, attesting to the tandem witness of these megalithic monuments on the Giza Plateau. This also supports the concept of Giza as a master-plan, as we find the grand God-ordained purposes of each monument, as they prophesy of the birth and Return of Christ according to the sacred feasts and holy days of the Hebrew calendar. In this singular and unique way the Great Pyramid, the Great Sphinx with its causeways all oriented due east, and aligned on the specific stars and planets, tell the greatest story of history’s ultimate victory of the Lord Jesus Christ, verifying the Gospel in the Stars as seen in the Alpha and Omega signs of the Hebrew Mazzaroth.

The Revised English Bible [1990] for Job 38:12-15 reads as follows:

12 In all your life have you ever called up the dawn, or assigned the Morning its place?
13 Have you taught it to grasp the fringes of the earth and shake the Dog-star from the sky?
14 To bring up the horizon in relief as clay under a seal until all things stand out like the folds of a cloak?
15 When the light of the Dog-star is dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one? 

In J. A. Clines’ view, though the Hebrew is not especially difficult, the meaning of this stanza is extremely problematic. … The strophe seems to be saying that when the morning has been given the command (v 12). 22 This is the only other Bible reference to the Son or Star of the Morning as seen in Isa. 14:12 which corroborates this concept.

Clearly, as Clines says, ויתיצבו “and they stand” is hard to fit into the context (KJV “and they stand as a garment” is not very intelligible). The plural is a difficulty, since there has been no plural since רשעים “wicked (?)” in v. 13, and one cannot see how the wicked would be standing [standing out-revealed from their cloak of darkness] like a garment.4

12 “Have you commanded the morning in your days and caused the dawn to know its place,
13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth and shake the wicked out of it?
14 It is changed as clay under the seal and stands forth as a garment.
15 From the wicked their light is withheld. The high arm is broken.

The previous plural reference to the “wicked” can refer to the host of the wicked that the serpent drew in his tail when he was cast out of heaven, that were revealed from their cloak of darkness, in the morning light. This would refer to the cloak or garment embodied in the wicked angels who accompanied Lucifer in his revolt against God. [Rev. 12, Ezek. 28:12-19]

The mention of a garment and the return to the wicked in verse 15 suggests that we have picked up once more the theme that evil-doers are restrained by daylight. [The laws of physics demand that the darkness flees from the light.] The shattering of the arm upraised for violence (15b) refers to the revolt in heaven of the Fallen Morning Star, which also accounts for the military context of the spiritual battle that began with the Original Sin of Lucifer’s revolt, and subsequent fall from his favored first estate position at God’s Right hand. [Comments mine]

Clines identifies the following problems: [http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2018/v31n1a10] 23

(iThematic consistency – One would have expected this strophe to deal only with cosmological matters, including the rendering of the Wicked as the Dog-Star in reference to Sirius, as is the case in vv. 4-38, and not to involve human beings. This difficulty is resolved when we understand the Double meaning of the “Wicked” vs. the “chief,” explained below.

(iiMoral language – The twofold mentioning of thewicked (רשעים) and the breaking of the upraised arm (וזרוע רמה תשבר) is surprising. This provides the context from which to understand the upraised arm as a reference to Lucifer’s revolt in his attempted coup against the Almighty, with his 1/3 of the angels whom he previously lead in praise to the glory of Almighty, God, [Job 38:7]. This spiritual battle still rages on today in human kingdoms.

Clines notes that “there is very little about humans in the whole of the Yahweh speeches, and even less about any moral government there may be of the world.”7

(iiiScribal abnormality – The ע of רשעים [wicked] is written with abnormal elevation. This suggests to Clines some hesitancy on the part of earlier scribes as to the appropriateness of this word in context. This is not hesitancy regarding this word, but points out the double meaning previously mentioned which is the key to unlocking the meaning of the context.

(ivCosmological and ethical interrelationship It is not clear how the cosmological text in this strophe (vv. 12-13a, 14) is related to the ethical acts described in the rest of the text (vv. 13b and 15). Once the angelic revolt lead by Lucifer with “upraised arm” is understood, the separation of God Who is all Good, and His Moral Government in the 1st Heavens and Earth, from the evil darkness of the enemy is clear, which also accounts for the juxtaposition of spiritual forces previously mentioned.

(vRare phrase – The phrase זרוע רמה is unique in the Tanakh. This “upraised arm,” is authentic when understood in light of the attempted spiritual coup suggests the possibility that it is not authentic.8

As we shall see in the following section additional difficulties can be identified.

The purpose of this study is to develop a new understanding of our strophe, which obviates the identified difficulties.

In vv. 12-15 the Septuagint seems to be taking a cosmological/terrestrial approach; Septuagint considers v. 14 and v. 15 as each being a separate question, the Vulgate turns only v. 13 into a separate question.

1 Ancient Versions and translations referenced below; [Septuagint, Targum, Latin Vulgate, Douay-Rheims translation, Peshitta, Revised English Bible, KJV]  

The Septuagint understands our strophe as referring to the creation of the Physical stars.

The Septuagint renders vv. 12-15:

12Or did I order the morning light in thy time; and did the Morning Star then first see his appointed place? God asks Job if God ordered the morning light in thy time? -[referring to the time of men] The answer is NO, because the [Gen. 1] Creation Week record does not mention the Creation of angels [Morning Stars of vs. 4-7]. Even in the 2nd H&E the Sun, Moon and stars were not created till the 4th day, still prior to man’s creation. But when God created the angels, in the 1st Heaven & Earth, he installed Lucifer as the chief Archangel at the right hand of the Creator-in his appointed place. This agrees with Isa. 14:12 in calling Lucifer the Bright and Morning Star, with vs. 13-15 providing motivation [the 5 “I wills”] for raising his arm against the Almighty God.

13to lay hold of the extremities of the earth to cast out the ungodly out of it? 14Or didst thou take clay of the ground and form a living creature, and set it with the power of speech upon the earth? 15And hast thou removed light from the ungodly, and crashed the arm of the proud? God’s rhetorical questions to Job depict God as the only Creator, and the only God capable of defeating Lucifer’s spiritual coup attempt. It was this attempted spiritual coup that removed Lucifer and his 1/3 of the angels from the Light of God’s Presence, since the Sun, Moon and Stars did not exist yet.

The Septuagint assumes that in v. 12 the term הֲמִיָּמֶיךָ = “have you, in thy time” (Ἢ ἐπὶ σοῦ), apparently reading הממך; reads instead of MT 2nd person (צִוִּיתָ) the 1st person צִוִּיתִי = “did I order” (συντέταχα), which does not agree with יִדַּעְתָּ in the parallel colon; adds to בֹּקֶר = “morning” (πρωϊνόν) the word “light” (φέγγος); reads instead of MT the pi’el of ידע (יִדַּעְתָּ) the qal יָדַעְתָּ =”did see” (εἶδε); takes וְיִנָּעֲרוּ = “to cast out, or shake out” (ἐκτινάξαι); takes בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the extremities” (πτερύγων); תִּתְהַפֵּךְ כְּחֹמֶר = “take clay of the ground” (λαβὼν γῆν πηλὸν), paraphrasing; instead of MT חוֹתָם reads חַיָּתָם = “form a living creature” (ἔπλασας ζῶον); it is not clear how the Septuagint could derive from MT the translation “and set it with the power of speech upon the earth” (καὶ λαλητὸν αὐτὸν ἔθου ἐπὶ γῆς); וְיִמָּנַע ≠ “And hast thou removed” (φελεσ δ); has אוֹרָם = “light” (τ φς); and, renders תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “crashed” (συνέτριψας). This removing of the raised arm in revolt, corresponds to the casting down or shaking out of the Fallen Morning star seen in Sirius. [Rev. 12:4]

 The Targum seems to be reading in v.12b לְשַׁחַר = “to the dawn” (לקרצתא). The variant of v. 12a is more specific with regard to מִיָּמֶיךָ = “Were you in the days of the beginning” (הביומי בראשית הויתא), turning v. 12a into a twofold question: “Were you in the days of the beginning and did you…?”; it reads לִהְיוֹת וְצִוִּיתָ בֹּקֶר = “and did you command the morning to be” (ופקדתא למהוי צפר); it is also reading in v.12b מְקֹמוֹ מהו= “what its place was” (האן אתריה). It takes in v. 13a בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the borders” (בגדפי); וְיִנָּעֲרוּ = “and be shaken” (ויטלטלון). The variant of v. 13 has בְּכַנְפוֹת = “of the borders” (בסטרא); adds “of Israel” (דישראל); and adds “rows” (דרא).

In v. 14 Targum renders תִּתְהַפֵּךְ = “It changes” (מתהפכא), using the participle instead of the imperfect; reads חוֹתָמָם = “their seal” (חותמא דילהון), though it is difficult to imagine that the Targum refers to the wicked; as וְיִתְיַצְבוּ = “and they (the wicked?) are made to stand” (ואתעדתון); and translates לְבוּשׁ = “a dirty garment” (כסו זהים), and renders לְבוּשׁ = “an empty garment.” Perhaps in reference to the already defeated nature of the fallen angels. Or, to the royal garments that Lucifer wore in his first estate with his angels, which he made filthy by his revolt. [Ezek. 28] These garments came with the place or position of the Morning Star in the 1st Heaven & Earth at God’s Right Hand, but were lost when iniquity was found in the Dog Star embodied in Sirius.

Finally, Targum understands in v. 15 that וְיִמָּנַע מִרְשָׁ עִ ים = “is hidden from the wicked” (ואתכסי מן רשיעיא); אוֹרָם =
The light of their breath” (נהור נשמתהון), adding נשמתהון; and וּזְרוֹעַ רָמָה תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “and the uplifted arm is broken” (ואדרע מרמא תתבר). A variant translation has וְיִמָּנַע מִרְשָׁ עִ ים = “Hidden from sinners” (ואתכסי מן חייביא); אוֹרָם = “And the light of the just” (נהוריהון דצדיקי), adding דצדיקי; and וּזְרוֹעַ רָמָה תִּשַּׁבֵּר = “and the arm of the proud is broken” (ואדרע דגיותניא אתברת).11

The Peshitta renders our strophe (except for v. 14) literally. It has:

12Have you commanded the dawn since your days began; or do you know the place of the morning13That it might take hold of the ends of the earth that the wicked might be thrown out of it? 14So that their bodies would be turned into clay, and be thrown into a heap. 15The light of the sinners shall be withheld, and the arm of the arrogant shall be broken.12

God asks Job if he commanded the dawn in his days. The Dawn here refers to the position of the Morning Star occupied by Lucifer first, but now by Jesus Christ as “light of the world.” We know the dawn refers to this position because in the next phrase of v. 12 , God asks Job if he knows the Place of the MORNING; 

The Vulgate presents a literal translation of the MT. According to the Douay-Rheims translation into English, it reads:

12Didst thou since thy birth command the morning, and show the dawning of the day its place? 13And didst thou hold the extremities of the earth-shaking them, and hast thou shaken the ungodly out of it14 The seal shall be restored as clay, and shall stand as a garment15From the wicked their light shall be taken away, and the high arm shall be broken. In v. 14a the rendering of the seal being restored, may refer to the to Godly protection that was violated in the destruction of the Creation of the 1st H&E, effected in the attempted spiritual coup, which was restored by The Creator in the 2nd Heaven & Earth, [Gen. 1:1-2]. Here we can see where the Covenants God set up in the 1 st H & E, violated by Lucifer, as the Morning Star, that he lost access to in the 2nd H & E, accept with Adam’s dominion of the kingdoms of the earth in Original Paradise, that fell to the Serpent in its temptation of Eve. Also, the seal reflects authority that came in Lucifer’s position of Chorus leader, as seen in his special clothing of [Ezek. 28:12-19], that he lost forever.

The Pyramid Texts of Ancient Egypt fit much better when we consider the heliacal rising of Sirius as the Dog-star is wiped out in the dawning sunrise in the brightening rays of the Sun’s, so the Dog Star is lost in the Sonrise. This is a perfect match not only with Otto Neugebauer’s description of the Heliacal rising of Sirius, but also the Biblical record here in Job 38. This also fits very well with v. 15 of the Revised English Bible rendering of “the Dog-star dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one.” The Stars of the Navigator’s line embody the stars of Orion’s Belt progressively fading, in the exact imagery described in the decan stars being lost or dimmed, fading away in the daily dawn brilliance of the Sun.   

It is well-known, however, that all ancient Egyptian funerary texts, from the Old Kingdom Pyramid Texts to the Late Period Carlsberg Papyrus, make it also abundantly clear that the ‘time’ of rebirth was to occur when the event known as the heliacal rising of Sirius would take place in the eastern sky. This all-important yearly event was when the star Sirius appeared for the first time after a 70 days period of invisibility from the night sky. All we have to do, therefore, is to reconstruct the Northern sky as it appeared at the exact heliacal rising of Sirius in order to see what the ancient Egyptians saw, and draw the obvious similarities to equate the celestial images to those found in the 38th Chapter of Job.

This is vividly clear from Cornelius’ conclusion that; [http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2018/v31n1a10] 24

In Job 38 God is described as the Creator, the One Who, like the Sun deities of the Ancient Near East, has the prerogative of establishing order, but also salvation for the righteous by destroying or leading captive the powers of chaos and unrighteousness.18

Still a modern commentator such as Clines finds that:

First, we would expect the strophe to concern only with cosmological matters, as does everything else in this first section (vv. 4-38) of the first divine speech, and not to involve humans. Secondly, presence of the wicked is surprising, for there is very little about humans in the whole of the Yahve speeches, and even less about any moral government there may be of the world.19

The reference to the wicked is “surprising” only in the absence of the angel’s rebellion lead by Lucifer who committed Original Sin, prior to the creation of humanity. This is the context of the cosmological content related to the Dog Star translation, in the Revised English Version of the Bible. The Host of Heavenstudy contains more details on this topic.

The double meaning of these related passages of Scripture becomes clear as we take a closer look at the word for “wicked” in the 16th verse of Psalm 22. Let’s take a detailed look at this word and its Hebrew root used in Job 38.

The following is a reference note in Revised English Version of the Bible on the “Dog-star” in Job 38:13 & 15.25 This is translated as “the wicked” in the majority of other versions, thus on the surface “Dog-star” does not seem to fit in Job 38. However, as we take a view related to what Aron Pinker refers to as the cosmological perspective of these Bible verses,  allowing God’s Word to speak for itself, uncovers some long obscured and priceless gems of truth. To clarify this, let’s look at a marginal note in the Companion Bible,26 where it says “the wicked” is the same as “lawless” [*H7561, rasha]. In both Job 38:13 and 15, the Hebrew letter “ayin” is suspended. Without the ayin, the word means “head, top, chief” [*H7222, rosh], in reference to Lucifer’s former position as the Archangel of light, where he was the top head angel, chief of the angels. With “Ayin” supplied it is “the wicked,” referring to the fallen archangel as the source of all evil wickedness and darkness, after his failed coup against the Almighty. All the ancient versions and early printed editions read “the Lawless.”

Picking up on J.A. Clines Scribal abnormality [iii] above; the ע of רשעים [wicked] is written with abnormal elevation. The elevated text is also seen in a related note in Bullinger’s Companion Bible, on Judges 18:30, linked to “Mannasseh,” the letter “nun” is suspended, written partly in the line and partly above the line, to show that originally it formed no part of the word, but was put in to render the spelling “Mannasseh” instead of “Moses.” This was done for two reasons, first to spare the honor of Moses’ memory and name and secondly, to put sin upon one [Mannasseh] who committed so gross a sin. The Authorized Version follows the Septuagint and the Chaldee by putting “Mannasseh” in the text; while the Revised Version follows the Latin Vulgate and those codices and early editions, which have “nunsuspended, by putting “Moses” in the text and “Mannasseh” in the margin.27 [emphasis mine]

If the usage of this suspended letter “ayin” in Job 38 follows suit with “nun” Judges 18, then “originally it formed no part of the word,” and should properly read “rosh” instead of “rasha“. This would change the text from the wicked or  lawless to “head, chief, prince, leader, point, top, first rank, the highest, or supreme.” From the cosmological viewpoint evident in the Revised English Version of Job 38, this etymology is consistent with Egypt’s Denderah  zodiac, the bright star Sirius or Canis Major, the Dog-star is called “Apes,” which means “the head“. As the Dog-star is the brightest naked-eye star in all the heavens from earth’s perspective, the meaning of the “head or prince” is a precise fit. This “prince of the Heavenly host” was also referred to in the sacred books of Persia as “Tistar,” the “Chieftain of the East.” This is not only a symbol of the sunrise embodied in the new light of the world, but it also refers to the Pyramid’s capstone or “Chief cornerstone,” [Ps. 118:22, Eph. 2:20, 5:23] catching the first rays of the dawn and sunrise of a new dayIn Zech. 4:7, the “headstone“- *H7222 [roshah] from rosh *H7218 means the topmost stone at the corner.”28 [3] This concept is fully developed in the Biblical Astronomy of the Great Pyramid, evident in Job 38. We have seen this as a recurring theme of our study of the celestial signs surrounding the birth of Christ. The fact that Lucifer was the original light of the world, like Sirius, the brightest star in the Heavens, shows us a correlation to the first bright and morning star, in the First Heaven and Earth.

This reflects a time in ancient Egypt when calendars of a 360-day sacred solar year and 365.25-day SiriusSothic Calendar were running in synch. As the angel of light, and Time Lord, all temporal matters and the timekeeping of all Creation ran under his watch. As an anthropic constant, the speed of light is linked to temporal matters in that the closer one approaches light speed, the more time slows for him, as seen in Einstien’s Special and regular relativity theories. This interrelation of light and time is a key aspect of the order of space-time. After he was cast down however, there was a needed separation between what had become profaned, in the fallen Lucifer and what would remain sacred and holy in the coming promised seed, the rising light of the world, embodied in the sun, the “faithful witness in Heaven,” [Ps. 89:36-37, Mal. 4:2] We find this scenario reflected also in the dual Sirius stars A and B.

It is this powerful truth that is reflected in the suspended letter “ayin” in the Hebrew, revealing a double truth related to the star Sirius as a symbol of Lucifer, the original embodiment of the bright and morning star. Before his revolt and fall from his position as the head (rosh) of Creation, he was the “head, chief, prince, leader, point, top, first rank, the highest, supreme.” However, once iniquity was found in him [Ezek. 28:15], he became “the lawless,” [Heb.-rasha] wicked one. He is the embodiment of the activation of the principle of evil [ra’a], also understood in the spiritual Entropy of his original sin, the incept point of all darkness. This also explains the extremely negative mythological connotations of Sirius. Burnham’s states: “In the ancient Greco-Roman world, the influence of Sirius was regarded as extremely unfortunate, as the allusion to the wrathful Achilles in the Iliad seems to suggest. In Virgil’s Aeneid we read of the Dog Star, that burning constellation, when he brings drought and disease on sickly mortals, rises and saddens the sky with inauspicious light.” 4 [29]

This carries a greater significance when we realize that Sirius did not always bear these negative connotations. Bullinger states:

Though this Dog-Star came to have an ill-omened association, it was not so in more ancient times. In the ancient Akkadian it is called Kasista, which means the leader and the prince of the heavenly host.” 5 [30]

This is significant also in light of Sirius’ physical characteristics. The fact that the Sirius system consists of a double or Binary Star seems to mirror the dual symbolic nature of the star, which emerges from the context of Job 38:13-15. In its original position and first estate as the central fire of the heavensSirius A as the leader of the heavenly host, exemplifies the effulgent brightness of the manifested light of the world, while Sirius “B,” its companion star exhibits characteristics just the opposite. Known in modern terminology as a White Dwarf, according to some of the most recent determinations, SiriusB has a density about 90,000 times that of our Sun. The cycle of Sirius “B” is a fifty-year cycle, a fact verified by modern astronomers. Thus it is interesting to see how half this 50-year cycle of Sirius “B” reflects a luni-solar relation inherent in the 50-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees, according to the golden section, or phi ratio. As we can see, the Hebrew Jubilee figures into the timing of Christ’s birth, and is distinct in the celestial events making up the great wonder of Revelation 12. As the archaic angel of light we would expect to find celestial associations in the Sirius cycle that agree with the cadence of the Biblical Patriarch’s calendar, if our thesis holds true. The following calculations from John A. West show the coordination of the luni-solar cycles according to the golden section, or phi ratio, by splitting the fifty-year cycle into 2 x 25 years. According to West: The twenty-five year solar cycle corresponds to 309 lunations. 31

The calculations are: 25 x 365 = 9125 days, and 9125 = 29.5307 days per lunation 309= 29.5307 days per lunation 309. This in itself reveals extremely accurate observations. Modern Astronomy reckons the lunation as 29.53059 days, a difference of about a second. But Schwaller de Lubicz notes the intriguing equivalence of twenty-five years to 309 lunar months. 309 = (f – 1) x 1000 and its choice as the number determining the cycle cannot have been accidental. 32                                                                  2

A double cycle, which expresses the Golden Section, comprises fifty years, or 618 lunations. We may also recall that Rosh ha-Shanah as Tishri 1, is the “head” of the Judean calendar as New Year’s day and Jesus’birth-date, the first day of the fifty-year Hebrew cycle of Jubilees. Thus, we find that the fifty-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees that corresponds with the orbit of Sirius “B,” seems based on ancient traditions holding truths beyond the limits of modern science and of Archaeo-Astronomy has deigned to go thus far. This shows an astronomical correlation between the start of the Hebrew Jubilee and the 50-year cycle of SiriusB, previously undocumented.

In the midst of this assembly of the wicked was Jesus Christ who was poured out like water, refering to his holy sacrificial offering, as he selflessly endured the excruciating pain of his death, laying down his life as the essence of Israel’s High Priest. The end result of his ultimate sacrifice brought the “all truth” of “the Comforter” of John 16:7, the gift of holy spirit that became available as a result of the New Birth, seen for the first time on the day of Pentecost. This is the liquid seed that was poured out of the bucket known in the stars as Aquarius’ Urn, the living waters that truly quench men’s souls, seen in Num. 24:7. Even as these agents of the enemy circled the Lord, bringing about his sufferings, these shadow idols of the Cherubim in bold defiance of the Son of the Living God, infused with the four dark winds of the Cardinal points, activated the power of the dog [Ps. 22:20], with the fullness of the evil desires of the lord of darkness.

In the face of this apparent defeat, lay the greatest victory of the ages over our hidden enemy and spiritual adversary, that we have uncovered in the oldest book of the Bible. As Job was a Patriarchal master of discerning of spirits, it is fitting that these writings are found here as a complement to the Old Testament manifestations of the spirit, as seen in [Isa. 11:1-3]. We remain thankful not only for the ultimate sacrifice of Christ that redeemed us, but also for the Patriarchal Scriptural record that provides key spiritual depth and doctrinal basis for our walk in the spirit today. I am also thankful for the Biblical Astronomy perspective and truths that contributed to this study of Job, without which it would not be possible.
