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

The Father of Lights

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

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

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

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

Gen. 2:7-9

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

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

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

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

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

Gen. 3:1-4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Js. 1:17 Father of Lights

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

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

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

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

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

Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

We must remember what John 1:5 tells us about the relationship between light and darkness;

“And the light [God] shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” 2

In the book Jesus Christ is not God, regarding John 1:5, V.P. WW stated; “The clause in verse 5 is a general rather than a specific statement regarding light and darkness, it does not refer to a specific lime in the past, in the present or in the future, but rather it is making a general statement about all time. Darkness is the absence of Light. Light, heat and all forms of energy are measured in terms of the positive never the negative. The negative is the absence of the positive. Even from a scientific point of view there is no way darkness could comprehend light since darkness is the absence of light. That which does not exist cannot overcome that which exists.  JCNG 2nd edition, p. 97

The 49th Octave of Visible Light

Prism of Light

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

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

The Spirit of God is the Light of God in Concretion

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

Spectro-Chrome Prismatic Light

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Four Kingdoms of Life-Plant Kingdom

Sunflowers show complex Fibonacci sequences

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

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

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

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

Exodus 25:31-40
31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same. 32 And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the candlestick out of the other side: 33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick. 34 And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds, with their knops and their flowers. 35 And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed out of the candlestick. 36 Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. 37 And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it. 38 And the tongs thereof, and the snuffdishes thereof, shall be of pure gold. 39 Of a talent of pure gold shall he make it, with all these vessels. 40 And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.

Verse 37 indicates the purpose of the lamps of the Menorah, “that they may give light…’ It is noteworthy that this is the same purpose of the celestial luminaries stated in Genesis 1:14-16. Interestingly, the word for “lights” in the firmament [Gen. 1:14, 16: *H216-maor] is the same word used in reference to the lamps of the Menorah, (Exodus 20:27, 35:14). Moreover, the same Hebrew word that refers to the Menorah’s individual lamps, also refers to the celestial lights of the Sun and Moon in Gen. 1:16. Thus we have a perfect relation between the purpose of the individual celestial lights and the individual lamps of the candlestick, to shed light upon the Earth. The emphasis with a Sun-centered system is placed on the Light of God. God’s Light is the Source of Life on Earth, even as God is the Father of Lights.

Genesis 1:14-16
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Since the same Hebrew words are used in reference to both the luminaries of the firmament and the lamp-stand of the Tabernacle, we are wise to notice the details of the Menorah’s celestial symbolism.

Ex. 25:33 Three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlestick.”

James Strong’s geometric synopsis of this verse states:
It will be perceived that each section of the semicircles of which these lines are the radii is composed of two members: the shank (a plain tube) and the bulb (or swell), and that each has a third part or base (a circular double flange, as a means of connection, hence an actual joint) only where it is united to a different kind of piece; i.e., at the bottom and top of the central shaft and of the six arms, including the intersections of the shaft with the arms.”8 [emphasis mine]

Plate 6. The Hebrew Menorah

central shaft and of the six arms

When we apply what we have already seen in the Biblical teaching of the Sun’s dual symbolism, to the Menorah, then it takes on a new light, associating the Sun not only with the solar system, but also the circular zodiac. The very structure of the Menorah shows its central shaft as the foundation of the candle, since it holds the main light as the centerpiece of the candlestick. All the branches of the candlestick are attached to the central shaft, even as they obtain their light from the main candle. This pattern is mirrored in the solar system as the planets and moons do not generate their own light, but reflect the light of the Sun, as they orbit around it. We find not only the order of the solar system reflected here but also that of the ecliptic with 12 Constellations. This is evident in the semi-circular pattern based on the pi ratio. By expanding on Strong’s analysis of the Menorah this will come to light. In Strong’s smaller geometric model of the Menorah, we note bulbs on the six branches of the candlestick that are projections of the central bulb, from whence all the radiating lines of the central light emanate. These projections of the central light on the six branches, (five naked eye planets and the Moon) depict how these luminaries reflect the Sun’s light in their individual orbits upon the Earth. This system shines light on the temporal periods and orbits of each naked-eye planet in our solar system, in relation to the Sun’s light. This is revealed in the mathematical context of  the base 60 standard, a primary trait of the Creator’s celestial order. The symbolism of the candle-stick also extends beyond our solar system to include the circle of 12 signs of the zodiac. Strong’s emphasis above on the geometric design of the Menorah, exhibits the Hebrew zodiac as in Genesis 49, with Jacob’s prophesies over his twelve sons. We should note that these lines noted by Strong as “the radii of the semi-circle,” reflecting the symbolic light of the world, if extended into a complete circle, the radii would divide it into 12 equal parts of 360 degrees of the circle according to the pi ratio. We can be safe in making this conceptual leap in the implied design of the Menorah, because we have already seen this pattern in the Temple pillars: Jachin and Boaz. This makes the Menorah the most complete piece of the furniture of the Temple and Tabernacle, acting as a celestial symbol of the structure of both our solar system and the zodiac. It is the most complete because it is the third aspect we have observed that utilizes the pi ratio, following on the great Brazen Sea and the Temple pillars. These aspects of The Celestial Symbolism of the Temple and Tabernacle utilize the pi ratio to depict the Hebrew calendar of 12 months of 30 days in the sacred 360-day year utilized by Noah. But the Menorah goes beyond this, embracing the planets in a heliocentric model of the ancient solar system, long before the Greek Aristarchus of Samos proposed it in the 2nd century BC.

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

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

Revelation 1:10-20

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

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

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

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

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

God Bless!!

Comments Off on The Father of Lights

Ancient Monuments of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

head of a woman and body of a lion

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

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

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

The Famed Star Cluster of the Pleiades.

star cluster

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

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

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

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

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

The Mazzaroth and the 12 Tribes of Israel

Image result for mazzaroth images

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 19:1-5

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Decan of Orion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Ziggurat at Ur.

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

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

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

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

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

God Bless!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

The Partial Solar Eclipse dates before the Blood Moon tetrad:

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

Partial Solar Eclipse Dates with the Second Lunar Triple:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

God Bless!!
