The Great Pyramid-the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land [Part 2]

Part 1 of this post focused on the alignment of Regulus-Jupiter-Mercury on August 6th 2015, that approximated the angle of the Great Pyramid’s Bethlehem line from Egypt. Picking up on the Boundary Stone aspect and function of the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau, another critical application includes the use of these Pyramids as a land surveyor’s tool. This may not seem too important at first glance, but when we consider that Egyptian land-owner’s boundaries were wiped away with every annual flooding season of the Nile, when the Nile/delta part of Egypt was one of the most densely populated areas of the ancient world, we begin to see the importance of this aspect of the Pyramid to the population of ancient Egypt. Their entire agricultural economy was based on the timing of the Nile’s flood stages, and the effect on the workable farmland of the Nile Delta, so the calendar/almanac that arose from this function of the Pyramids, along with the ability to quickly restore the land boundaries obliterated by the floods, would have prevented ancient Egypt from descending into social chaos.

By means of its reflections and shadows, the Great Pyramid became the great sundial of Egypt, not only for the days and hours, but for the seasons of the year. Exactly as a modern chronometer gives the hours, say, of midnight, 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m., so the reflections of the Pyramid gave accurately the days upon which the Winter Solstice, the Spring Equinox, the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox occurred. This precisely defined the Solar-Astronomical Year. For the Land Surveyor’s using the outlines of the Pyramids on the horizon as reference points, accurate boundaries could be restored very simply with the use of only a cord and a stone weight. The Pyramids were also used in land surveying based on the same geometry of the Ziggurats of ancient Babylon, with 3-4-5 triangles, or right-angled triangles as the common standard for the dimensions of the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid. These geometric principles were also utilized in the divine dimensions of the Hebrew Tabernacle and Temple, depicting the Creator’s consistency in His Intelligent Design of His sacred structures.

Some of the Great Pyramid’s cast shadows appeared as “arms” on the ground, specifically the “two eastern and western arms of its solar-noon reflections,” as observed by Lemesurier, who states in reference to the Pyramid’s right arm resulting from its solar shadow that it; “lay in close proximity to the Bethlehem line. ” He continues with: “At some date during the Spring, the right arm of the noon reflection must start to align with the Bethlehem line. The first part of the arm to align in this way would be the northern edge of the arm, which is followed by the alignment of the apex ridge of the arm with what could likewise be described as the apex ridge of the Bethlehem corridor, at which point the arm would be entirely interior to that corridor, and thus at the culmination of its alignment.” The Great Pyramid Decoded, Peter Lemesurier, p.194 [see Figure D.] The key to this corridor within which the alignment takes place between the right arm of the shadow of the summer sunrise from the latitude of the Pyramid, with the Bethlehem line, is that the 5 miles between Bethlehem and Jerusalem, along with Mt. Zion are all critical geographic locations falling within this corridor. [Figure D.]

When we combine this with the fact that if a line drawn on a map of the Giza Plateau, in a south-eastern direction from the Great Pyramid’s apex, at the Ascending/Descending passage angle, it intersects Mount Sinai where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, the added significance of the Bethlehem line linked with Mt. Zion in Jerusalem becomes apparent. This provides the basis of links between the Great Pyramid, Mt. Zion and Mt. Sinai as important markers with geographical and spiritual significance at the boundaries of the Promised Land of God’s Covenant with Abraham. The Triangle marked below [Figure B] unifies the baseline of the Great Pyramid Boundary Stone and God’s Everlasting Covenant with Abraham, to Mt. Sinai, representing the Old Covenant through Moses, and finally to Mt. Zion and the New Covenant through Jesus Christ. The alignment of the arm produced by the shadow of the solar-noon reflection with the Bethlehem line itself, according to Lemesurier, corresponds to the record in Exodus 6.

Exodus 6:1-8 1 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now thou will see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with a strong hand he will let them go, and with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land. And God spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am the Lord. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name Lord[a] I was not known to them. I have also established My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, in which they were strangers. And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage, and I have remembered My covenant. Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God Who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. AndI will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the Lord.’

Lemesurier draws some interesting conclusions in his thesis with Exodus 6. He points out the double reference to the Lord’s strong hand of deliverance for Israel in verse 1, linking it to the dual alignment of the solar arm with the Bethlehem line, which seems appropriate. If he is right, then we have a direct link between these important lines originating from the Great Pyramid as the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land, with other key references in these verses where the Almighty establishes His Covenant with Israel in verse 3. When God establishes something in His Word, He repeats it, and as we saw in the first part of this blog post, God established the Covenant He made with Abraham, [Gen. Chapters 15 and 17] confirming it with Moses the deliverer of Israel. God also repeats His promise to give Israel the Land of Canaan as an everlasting heritage, marked by the boundary stone of the Great Pyramid. As the Prophet Isaiah has spoken eloquently in Chapter 19 on the Biblical details of the Great Pyramid as the boundary stone of the ages, so he carries on the imagery of the Great Pyramid later Chapter 19, and in subsequent chapters of his divinely inspired Scripture. If these conclusions are correct, then we can look at similar Biblical records with figurative references to the Great Pyramid to glean added wisdom.

The Bethlehem line also has significance for the prophecy that God’s son would be called out of Egypt, since this line reflects the general route that Joseph and Mary would have taken to avoid Herod’s slaughter of the Judean children in Bethlehem, under 2 years old.

Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Hosea’s prophecy initial reference was to God’s calling Israel out of Egypt, under the leadership of Moses, but realized it’s fulfillment in the infant Jesus’ return to Israel from Egypt. Thus we have the Bethlehem line drawing a comparison between Moses the redeemer of Israel and the Lord Jesus Christ as the redeemer of all mankind. This prophecy was realized in Matthew 2;

Matthew 2:15-18 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. [16] Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. [17] Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, [18] In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

As the light of dawn precedes the sunrise, so the witness of the Pyramid via the Bethlehem line anticipated this Son-rise of the ages.

Isaiah 19: 23 In that day will there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians.

In Isa. 19:23 a “highway out of Egypt” is referenced, indicating the geographical application of the “Bethlehem line,” which is the exact angle of 26 degrees 18’ 9.7”, the Pyramid’s astronomical meridian aligned to its descending and ascending passages. This theme of a “highway out of Egypt” is a consistent thread throughout the book of Isaiah, and is intriguing here in Isaiah 19 in the immediate context of verses 19-20 referring to the Pyramid. This also shows the first of a three fold truth that Jesus is, the true way that leads unto life.

Isaiah 11:16

And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. Here the reference to the highway specifically cites Israel that came out of the land of Egypt. This is a strong link to the Bethlehem line.

Isaiah 35:8-10

 And an highway will be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean will not pass over it; but it will be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. [9] No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast will go up thereon, it will not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: [10] And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Here again in Isaiah we find references linking this “highway of holiness” leading to Mt. Zion, the fortress of God’s People. The Faithful remnant of Israel would not only be protected from the adversarial lions in the wilderness, but would also share in the complete redemption of the New Covenant in Mt. Zion.

Figure C. [3]

The Great Pyramid’s Bethlehem Line


Isaiah 40:3-5

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. [4] Every valley will be exalted, and every mountain and hill will be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: [5] And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh will see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

This desert highway is a figurative reference to the Bethlehem Line which is consistent with the theme of revealing the glory of the Lord,” in verse five. As this Bethlehem line continues from the borders of Egypt through the Sinai desert, it encapsulates Israel’s 40 years of wanderings in the wilderness. As it proceeds, it crosses through the town of Bethlehem, some 233 miles distant in Israel, at the part of town where Jesus was born, and continues on through the Jordan River. The River Jordan among other things, was where Jesus received the holy spirit at his baptismal by John the Baptist, marking the practical inception of Jesus’ ministry. This line crosses the River Jordan just opposite Jericho, marking the crossing of Israel led by Joshua, into the Promised Land. From the time of its construction in the Patriarchal Age, the Pyramid’s Bethlehem line prophecy encompasses the Mosaic Exodus that included the giving of the Law, the transition from the Law to John the Baptist, to the Lord Jesus Christ and his administration, beginning at his birth in Bethlehem, to the glory of his Second Coming. {Jer. 32:19-22}

Revealing this glory of the Lord is also seen in the scored lines of the descending passage of the Pyramid, in their stellar alignment above the Pyramid’s apex, to the Pleiades, referring to the placing of its glorious capstone, at the apex of the Great Pyramid.

Isaiah 40:9-12 [9] O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; {Isa. 2:2-3} O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! [10] Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. [11] He will feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that are with young. [12] Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

These references in verse 9 emphasize Mount Zion in the same breath with Jerusalem, even as we have just seen with the alignment of the right arm of the noon-shadow with the Bethlehem Line. And as if on que, verse 10 makes mention of the Lord’s strong hand and strong arm of authority by which he rules the heathens. This authority is of course embodied in the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings who inherits King David’s Royal Throne, as the perfect Savior and Deliverer that the Great Pyramid was designed to attest to, as seen in Isaiah 19:20. The alignment of the right arm of the noon-shadow with the Bethlehem Line is seen in Figure D, below showing the east arm of the Pyramid’s noon shadow aligning with the Bethlehem Corridor, covering the distance between Bethlehem and Mt Zion in Jerusalem. This miraculous monumental beacon, provides numerous scientific proofs and evidences of the Creator, as the Great Pyramid is a scale model of the earth on a 1/43,000 standard.  The 118th Psalm below specifically refers to the Pyramid’s capstone or “Chief cornerstone;” {Eph. 2:20, 5:23} linked with Jesus Christ.

Ps. 118:14-24

14 Jehovah is my strength and song; And he is become my salvation. 15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly. 16 The right hand of Jehovah is exalted: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly. 17 I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of Jehovah. 18 Jehovah hath chastened me sore; But he hath not given me over unto death. 19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto Jehovah. 20 This is the gate of Jehovah; The righteous will enter into it. 21 I will give thanks unto thee; for thou hast answered me, And art become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders rejected Is become the head of the corner. 23 This is Jehovah’s doing; It is marvellous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which Jehovah hath made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Alignment of the Great Pyramid’s Right Arm Noon-shadow with the Bethlehem Line

Isaiah 40:22-26

 It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: [23] That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. [24] Yea, they will not be planted; yea, they will not be sown: yea, their stock will not take root in the earth: and he will also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. [25] To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. [26] Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. [27] Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? [28] Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends [H7098] of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding. [Ps. 147:4]

“stretched”- H5186 {natah} means to stretch out, extend, to elongate, to draw out by extending, by implication to bend away.[5] It is used in connection with the stretching of a measuring line here, Isa. 44:13, and in Zech. 1:16, where it refers to the construction of the Lord’s temple in Jerusalem; Zech. 1:16-17, 2:1-2, 4:7 {“headstone”- H7222 [roshah] from rosh-H7218.} [6] Rosh Hashannah as Tishri 1, “headof the Judean calendar was New Year’s day and Jesus’ birth-date,the first day of the 50-year Hebrew Sabbatical cycle of Jubilees. This word is also linked with thespreading out of the heavens as a curtain,” {Isa. 40:22 above} prophesying of an “expanding universe,” millennia before modern science re-discovered it.

King David claims the promise of God specifically from Numbers 24:17-18, in reference to the subjugation of the corners of Moab, to the Star out of Jacob. This delineates the division of the Promised Land according to the four points of the compass, and the four triangular faces of the Pyramid. These lines on the earth emerge directly from the lines of the witness of the stars in the heavens, as God put His Word and the story of the coming redeemer in the heavens and taught it to Adam in the Original Paradise administration. Thus the lines of celestial latitude and longitude have their dominion in the earth as geographical lines emanating from the capstone of the Great Pyramid and the “sides of the North” or the astronomical North Pole. It is this capstone and Chief corner-stone that specifically refers to Jesus Christ.

Zech. 4:7   Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou wilt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

“headstone”- H7222 [roshah] from rosh-H7218 means the top most stone at the corner.”[7] This is another reference to Jesus Christ as the capstone. Thus we find the Pyramid’s capstone or “Chief cornerstone” {Eph. 2:20, 5:23} catches the first rays of the dawn and sunrise of a new day. We can see the biblical and astronomical imagery of Jesus Christ the promised seed, as the Sun, the “faithful witness in Heaven,” {Ps. 89:36-37, Mal. 4:2} also casting the noon-shadow aligned with the Bethlehem line.

Micah 5:2-4 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee will he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. [3] Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. [4] And he shall stand and feed (rule) in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now will he be great unto the ends of the earth.

The truth that Bethlehem was also David’s birthplace is revealed in I Sam. 16:1,18. David represents the glory of the regal line of the kings of Israel that culminates according to God’s eternal purpose, in the ascent of Jesus Christ-King of Kingswhose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. This eternal purpose is the focal point of the celestial signs of this study, the subject and protagonist of God’s Word-Jesus Christ. The primary themes of God’s eternal purpose which runs through both the Scriptures and the Heavens are clearly evident in these celestial wonders. These scriptural themes are also evident in the Great Pyramid’s Bethlehem line, when seen in both its   astronomical and geographical applications. These amazing lines continue their narrative with the entering of the “promised land,” for Christians in our day as we move and believe together, functioning as members in particular of the spiritual body of the Church with Christ as the head. Israel’s journey from the land of bondage in Egypt, to the promised land is one that parallels the life of a believer, from bondage in sin to the freedom of the new birth. As we make the individual pilgrimage in life to Jesus Christ the headstone, we can have access to the joy and freedom in fellowship with our Heavenly Father. This is the Pyramid’s witness, which culminates in Jesus as the chief corner-stone, evident in the Pyramid’s architecture, since both its descending and ascending passages terminating at the Pyramid’s central apex line, prophesy of its missing capstone at the summit.

Figure E.

Missing Capstone of The Great Pyramid

 

Psalm 16:7-11 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. [8] I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. [9] Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices: my flesh also rests in hope. [10] For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. [11] Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

These verses in Psalm 16 set in wonderful juxtaposition to the imagery of Job 26, which according to the Pyramid’s descending passage, has the star Thuban of Draco at the North pole, and the pit representing the abyss at the other, under the base of the Pyramid. Unlike Lucifer who embodies “corruption,” the ascendant Morning Star–Jesus Christ did not see the total corruption of the grave, only enough to fulfill the law and be raised from the dead. This word in verse 10 for corruption is shachath {H7845} meaning; a pit, a pitfall, a well, a grave. [8] The rich imagery of a pit in where snares were laid for wild animals provides the background for a figurative use of this word. It appears in the famous Psalm 16:10 where the LXX rendered it with diaphthora {G1312} and Luke understood it in the sense of “corruption.” [9] The architectural application of this descending passage, as is well documented, refers to the path leading unto death, and the grave, ironically both under the rule, and governing the destiny of the Dragon, showing not only the enemy’s dominion and activity centered around death; [Jn. 10:10, Heb. 2:14] but also how the adversary embodies his own destruction. Conversely, the path of life known as the Pyramid’s ascending passage ties in here to verse 11, corroborated in the witness of the Bethlehem line. Both passages in the Pyramid have the angle of 26 degrees 18” 9.7’, but the ascending passage rises towards the Pyramid’s upper chambers beginning at the point of intersection and departure from the descending passage, and represents the way of salvation that God makes available, throughout all 7 Biblical administrations. This amazing witness of the Great Pyramid chronicles the deliverance of Israel via the Hand of God, through Moses, a forerunner and type of Christ. Only God could ordain the miraculous witness of this pyramidal monument to the astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs, as the universal touchstone, and pre-Scriptural witness of the coming Messiah.

The Biblical perspective of the Great Pyramid is clearly witnessed in [Job chapts. 26 & 38 for further study]. These Scripture passages provide a unique view of the angle of the ascending/descending passages within the Great Pyramid, specifically the Descending passage, and its alignment on alpha draconis, depicting the spiritual significance of the polar precession. This speaks not only of the alignment of Regulus-Jupiter-Mercury on August 6th 2015, in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2015, but also the Pyramid’s ascending/descending passage alignments with Venus and Jupiter on Rosh Hashanah in Sept. of 2017. Thus we find important applications for the angle of the Pyramid’s passages, both geographically, in the Bethlehem line, encapsulating the history of Israel’s deliverance and inheritance the Promised Land, and astronomically regarding the glorious Second Coming of the Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Birth of Christ

The Heavenly Signs Marking the Birth of Christ


Blood Moon Eclipses Surrounding the Birth of Christ

For those planning to view the Blood Moon Lunar eclipse Wednesday morning 10-8-2014, they have a treat in store for them.  This event takes place at sunrise while the Blood Moon will be setting, providing a very rare opportunity to see the rising Sun and setting Blood Moon in the skies at the same time. This adds spice to an already tasty menu of Blood Moons on Hebrew Feast and holy days, such as tommorrow’s Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot. The events surrounding this Blood Moon Tetrad just get more amazing the closer we approach their conclusion. Why could this be? Perhaps its because when the Almighty spun the stars and planets in their courses, at Creation, He knew the critical significance attached to marking the great appearances of His only begotten Son.

The Creator’s perfect prophetic plan of redemption naturally accounts for all contingencies. This includes not only all aspects of his Written Word being upheld, but also with the full support of the witness of His Creation. As He set the truth of the coming redeemer-Jesus Christ in His Written Word, He also backed these truths with many signs and wonders on earth, and in the heavens. These Heavenly Signs spoke to those with eyes to see, just as loudly as the witness of the Scriptures. Just as this was the case with the first coming of Christ, so it is with his immanent Return. In this light, our examination of the Blood Moon Tetrads takes on added meaning and depth for the end times, since God provided a blueprint of heavenly signs, starting over 2000 years ago, marking the birth of Christ, that provides the keys to our recognition of his Second Coming. We find this Scriptural record in Revelation 12.

Rev. 12:1-2 “Now a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the Sun with the Moon under her feet, and on her hd a garland of 12 stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.”

Virgo marking the birth of Christ

Virgo Clothed in the Sun with the Moon at her Feet on 9-11-3BC-Tishri 1.

This Scripture gives us the keys to decipher the celestial signs marking the first and second coming of Christ. A sign in the heavens in verse 1, refers to a celestial sign on the path of the Sun, called the ecliptic in the heavens. On this path which the Sun takes through the heavens in its annual course, there is only one sign of the zodiac depicted as a singular woman-Virgo the virgin. Virgo is clothed with the Sun for 20 days every year, which is one of the 12 keys of the “Celestial Prelude” listed below. However the Moon only appears at the feet of Virgo one day each year while she is clothed with the Sun. This was September 11th in 3 BC marking the birth of Christ, [Rev. 12:2].

This heavenly sign will occur again in autumn of 2017, after the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 [Joel 2:28-31]. We will take a detailed look at a comparison of these signs in an upcoming study, which this serves as the basis for, but for now let’s continue with the heavenly signs of Christ’s first appearance. The Apostle Peter refers to the return of Christ in his second epistle;

II Peter 1:19 “So we have the prophetic Word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.”

We as Sons of God, don’t have to wait for the return of Christ to stand in his delegated authority to us, because the power of Christ in us, is a spiritual reality in our Christian new birth. As we stand on this authority of the arisen daystar in our hearts; [II Pet. 1:19], all kingdoms of darkness in this world are already under our feet. As we find in the chart below, an aspect of the darkness of the world is symbolized not only in lunar occultations in April of 6 BC, but also the luni-solar eclipses of 7-1 BC. This reveals prophetic patterns that the Heavenly Father wrote into His celestial epistle’s for those with the understanding to decipher and believe the truth of this stellar witness, marking the long awaited return of the promised seed.

The heavenly signs setting the pattern of the birth of Christ, starting at the first Jupiter-Saturn union of 7 BC, set forth specific signposts that the Magi were on the lookout for starting in 3 BC. These preliminary signs from 7-5 BC provided the Magi the blueprints they would need to recognize the heavenly signs identifying the time frame of the birth of Christ. When I first posted this study 10 years ago on our Try-God.com website, it fell in a category I called the “Celestial Prelude,” The fact that the heavenly signs of this dress rehearsal unfolded over a period of 2 years was also a clue of what the Magi could expect, when the curtain actually arose on the celestial pageantry of the birth of Christ. Below is a reprint of the key points that were posted in a “Summary of the Celestial Prelude,” which serves as a good starting point for review, in light of the modern context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015.

As we see in the charts comparing the heavenly signs of 7-5 with those of 3-1 BC, the stellar pattern of conjunctions is strikingly similar. Some points that would have caught the Magi’s attention are as follows:

12 Characteristics of the Celestial Prelude

• Jupiter was clearly marked as “his star.”
• Jupiter was involved in a triple planetary Conjunction.
• Jupiter was involved in a series of planetary conjunctions.
• Jupiter’s retrograde motion would play a key role.
• Jupiter’s triple union was followed by a massing of planets.
• This massing of planets was followed by a Mars Conjunction.
• The Jupiter-Mars Conjunction was followed by a series of lunar occultations, and total “Blood Moon” lunar eclipses.
• This series of conjunctions would last about two years.
• The annual twenty days when the Sun is in Virgo would be a key.
• The September 15th alignment of Jupiter, Saturn the Earth and Sun in 7 BC that occurred in the evening at sunset, directed the Magi’s attention to the end of the 20-day period when Virgo was “clothed with the Sun.”
• The lunar eclipse on September 15th of 5 BC established that the Magi should be watchful of lunar activity during this time. This framed the 42 minute period between Sunset and Moonset on the only day of the year when Virgo “was clothed with the Sun with the Moon under her feet.”
• The September 15th Heliacal Rising of Jupiter and Saturn foreshadowed the Heliacal Setting of the star Spica, between the setting Sun and Moon in Virgo, identifying a key 30-minute period when the birth of Christ took place.

These twelve stellar pointers provided by the Hand of the Heavenly Father left no doubt as to the time of year, the specific day and even the time of day for the Magi to recognize the time frame of the birth of the only begotten Son of God. Since we have this detailed account of the celestial setting marking the birth of Christ, it is fitting that we reconstruct the specifics of the solar and lunar eclipses leading up to the birth of Christ, for comparison with the modern Blood Moon Tetrads for insight. The following chart includes the solar and lunar eclipses, up to and including the Lunar Eclipse marking the death of Herod in Jan. of 1 BC.

The Jupiter-Saturn triple Conjunctions in 7 BC, highlighted by a planetary alignment on Sept. 15th 7BC, initiated a pattern of heavenly signs that reappeared in September of 5 BC with a pair of lunar eclipses. On 9-5-5BC there was a partial Solar eclipse, with a Total Lunar eclipse following 10 days later on 9-15-5BC. These heavenly signs exactly 2 years apart, pointed out to the Magi that they should be on the lookout for heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ, in the next 2-year period in September of 3 BC! Since September marked Hebrew New Year’s Holy day, called Rosh Hashanah starting the sacred seventh month of Tishri, on September 11th 3BC, the Magi would have been on notice with their eyes riveted to the heavens for the signs denoting the coming of the prophesied King of the Jews. As stated in the summary above, the lunar activity in 5BC established that the Magi should be watchful of lunar activity during this time, two years later in 3BC. This framed the 42-minute period between Sunset and Moonset on the only day of the year when Virgo “was clothed with the Sun with the Moon under her feet.” [Rev. 12:1]. This period in mid-September towards the end of the annual 20-day time-frame when the “Sun was clothing Virgo,” was also marked by the first of 3 unions of Jupiter and Regulus in 3-2BC, showing a celestial coronation ceremony where the king star Regulus in Leo, the sign marking the Lion of the Tribe of Judah [Rev. 5:5], was crowned by the king planet Jupiter as a result of Jupiter’s retrograde motion in Leo. [read more] This was a key aspect of the Creator’s singular means of depicting the crowning of His Promised Seed in the heavens.

Although there is no overt Blood Moon Tetrad marking the birth of Christ, there is critical lunar activity, without which the Magi would not have fully realized the heavenly signs surrounding Christ’s birth. It is also noteworthy that these specific heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ are framed by four Total lunar eclipses between March of 5 BC and July of 1 BC. In light of the remarkable Blood Moon Tetrad activity involving the history of Israel that would follow over the next 2000 years, this is certainly significant, and may qualify as a preliminary sign to be cognizant of, not only Total lunar eclipses in general, but lunar eclipses in sets of 4 particularly.

With these heavenly signs from 7-1 BC marking the specifics of the Birth of Christ, we should not be surprised to see similar celestial events marking the much awaited and prophesied return of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is in fact what we are seeing in light of ther dual significance of Revelation 12:1-2. The biblical truths of this scripture tell not only of Christ’s birth, but also his second coming, established by similar heavenly signs marking both events. As we are witnessing during the time of writing this study, the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, we are on a sharp watch for any heavenly signs that resemble those around his birth, and the signs from the Hand of the Almighty pointed out in the chart above, give us the basis of this search. This in truth serves as a divine check and balance system in Biblical Astronomy, because as we see the blueprints of heavenly signs that told of the first coming of Christ, we will see a racpitualtion of heavenly signs marking his triumphant return.

As far as the next Blood Moon Lunar eclipse is concerned on the Feast of TabernaclesOctober 8th 2014, like the full moons of previous months leading to the Sukkot Blood Moon, known as a Super Moons, due to their position and distance to the earth, they are closer than normally seen. This 2nd Blood Moon in the 2014-2015 Tetrad is characterized by a series Super moons in the previous months capped of by a Sukkot Blood Moon. This is important because as the Blood Moon Tetrad series continues into 2015, the Super Moon will return again, only this time as part of the 4th Blood Moon of the series. Also, this month’s Blood Moon takes place in the constellation Pisces, which is noteworthy, because historically the sign of the fishes symbolized the land of Israel. The fact that the heavenly signs from 7-5 BC almost all occur in Pisces, is interesting because for the Magi, the constellation Pisces symbolizes the House of Jacob, and as they followed the King’s Star Jupiter, it explains why the Magi came to Jerusalem looking for the King of Israel. Pisces is also critical due to the Precession of the Equinoxes, which shifted from the Age of Aries to the Age of Pisces in 7-6BC, marked by the triple union of Jupiter and Saturn during that time.

We trust this article provides some added perspective on the Blood Moon Tetrad, historically and Biblically so we can decipher the signs the heavenly Father laid out in the skies, in His perfect Foreknowledge.
