Biblical Evidence of The Blood Moon Tetrads on Hebrew Feasts

Joel- The Blood Moon Prophet

Isaiah 24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for Yahweh of Armies will reign on Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem; and before his elders will be glory

Since the summer of 2014 we have posted multiple articles on the significance of Blood Moon Tetrads over the last 200 centuries during the Age of Grace. We have made references to the Joel’s Prophecies concerning the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar eclipses on Hebrew feast and Holy days, but in order to understand the scope of these prophecies, we need to take a closer look at the Biblical context of Joel’s Prophecies. A study of the four main Biblical usages of the Hebrew word [moed- H4150], will supply and establish the missing Biblical evidence of the Blood Moon Tetrads on Hebrew Feasts. We will also consider how some prophecies from Isaiah, as above relate to this study. With this in mind, lets begin by considering the second chapter of Joel to see what God’s Word can tell us, since the Scripture always defines its own terms in how individual words are utilized within the Word of Truth, on any given subject addressed.

Joel 2  (KJV)

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

The first verse of Joel 2 sets the context for the Blood Moon Prophecy later in the chapter. Zion represents God’s Holy Mountain, and God dwelling among His people in these last days, and forever. This refers to both Judeans and Gentiles who are followers of Christ, starting with Israel in the OT. God is clearly SOUNDING the ALARM in His Holy Mountain becausethe Day of the Lord, the long awaited Day of the Second Coming of Christ is “nigh at hand.” This sets the context and the tone for the Blood Moon Prophecies following in Joel 2 & 3.

A primary key to the entire Blood Moon dialogue is found in a basic section of Scripture relevant to Biblical Astronomy, in Genesis 1.

Genesis 1:14-16
14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 Then 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.

For a more detailed Biblical Astronomy discussion of the verses please refer to the Introduction of The Calendar of the Biblical Patriarchs.

Pastor Mark Biltz was one to point out that the word for “seasons” in verse 14 is [moed- H4150] in an appointed time or season. It has specific Biblical references to Hebrew feast and holy days; [Levi. 23:2-4, 37 & 44],  or the seven primary feasts on the Hebrew Calendar. The heavenly signs involving the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses on Hebrew feast days, is a primary defining aspect of Blood Moon Tetrads in the last 2000 years of the Age of Grace. This Genesis record lays a foundation for Biblical Astronomy, and although we have seen many media references in the hoopla over the Blood Moon mania, to Joel’s Prophecies of the “Moon turning to blood,” we have not seen specific Biblical evidence of Blood Moons on Hebrew Feasts days! This is probably one reason why the majority of headlines associated with Blood Moons end in question marks or vague predictions, instead of exclamation pointsGod says what He means, and means what He says in His Word, and the integrity of Scripture is beyond reproach, so we just need to ascertain what His Word says and do it.

Since this is a basis of the idea for Blood Moons relating to Israel, we need to be clear on this point, removing any conjecture linked to the Blood Moon Phenomena. A deeper view of the context of Joel’s “Blood Moon Prophecy” will show us what we are looking for. The Hebrew word for “seasons” has 4 different Biblical usages, the first one as an appointed time or season, is evident and the most popular, since it provides a direct link to Hebrew feasts. According to Gesenius,1 this word is also used in reference to not only the assembly, but also the place of assembly. In the OT, this is the place God chose to reveal himself to His people, the Tabernacle of Congregation for example; [Exod. 27:21, 33:7, 11, 40:22-24, Num. 7:89] was this place, as Moses lead Israel in the Exodus through the wilderness. Later when a permanent Temple was built in Jerusalem on Mount Zion, this became the central point of Hebrew spiritual life. Isaiah provides more detail on this;

Isaiah 33:20
Look at Zion,
the city of our appointed festivals. Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet habitation, a tent that won’t be removed. Its stakes will never be plucked up, nor will any of its cords be broken.

Jerusalem and Mount Zion

The reference above in Isa. 33:20 speaks to Zion in the same breath as the appointed festivals, referring Feast and Holy days on the Hebrew Calendar, linking the place of feasts with the feasts themselves. This seems obvious on the surface, but when we realize the context, of Joel 2 and his Blood Moon Prophecies in the next few verses, we can see the direct links between the Blood Moons on the Hebrew Feasts which set these Blood Moon Tetrads apart from Blood Moons that don’t take place on these feasts, over the last 200 centuries. There are hundreds of Blood Moons to chose from in the Age of Grace, but only a relative few coinciding with Hebrew Feast and Holy days.

[Joel 2:1] provides the setting of the trumpet blast in “Mountain of God’s Habitation,” the location of the Holy Temple, so that Joel is Sounding the Alarm for the Day of the Lord in Zion, telling us God is starting with the faithful of Israel, His nearest and dearest so to speak, letting us know that the trumpet blast in Mount Zion is not to be ignored, but must be heeded with urgency. God has many more people on earth than those of Israel, as many have come to God through Christ, and those who believe His Word will heed the warnings, but the truth isn’t for everyone. There are generally four reasons that trumpets were blown in Israel [Num. 10:1-10]. One was a call to war, which fits with the armies coming to surround Jerusalem leading to a final battle in Joel 2:2-9. Another was for a call to assembly as seen in the following verses from Joel 2 below.

Joel 2:15-16
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.


Temple Trumpets

Isa. 33:20 also tells us to Look at Zion, the city of our appointed festivals! The Hebrew for appointed festivals here is [moed- H4150], showing the same direct link to the Hebrew Feast days, proving the context for Sounding  the Alarm in Zion-the place of assembly for God’s people, on the 7 sacred feasts. The nation of Israel even as the Church of God  must be a sanctified congregation as Joel 2:15 states, because the pure holiness of our Heavenly Father requires a pure and holy people for Him to dwell in their midst. These feasts like Passover, the Feast of Tabernacles and the Day of Atonement, to mention a few, are the holy days marked by  Blood Moon Tetrads of the Age of Grace, prophesied not only by Joel, but also by the Apostle Peter in his Sermon on the Day of Pentecost opening the Age of Grace, [Acts 2:19-20]. Our post on the Biblical Blood Moon Calendar summarizes the Blood Moon Tetrads over the last 2000 years. Joel’s Prophecy in [Joel 2:28] below, was also fulfilled on this long sought after Day of Pentecost when God’s people first spoke in tongues.

Joel 2:28
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

Isa. 33:20 goes on to reference Jerusalem, reclaimed by Israel in 1967 for the first time in nearly 2000 years, in the 6-day war with Egypt-marked by the Blood Moon Tetrad of 1967-68. In the context of this Jerusalem reference, we find the “tent” or place of the congregation where the Temple of God will be rebuilt in the end-times, on Mount Zion, the Mountain of God’s Habitation.

In verses 2-9 of Joel 2, the armies who gather themselves against Israel in the last days are starting to materialize, and the preliminary aspects for this battle are being set on the world stage as we speak. The political pacts forming the armies surrounding Israel in these verses, are being formed as a result of current international alliances in the news. Verse 10 below not only provides a reference to the Sun, Moon and Stars wherein Israel keeps its Calendar, but it also references the darkening of the Sun and Moon leading up to the specific warning of the Blood Moon prophecy later in this chapter, [Joel 2:31].

Joel 2:10
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

Verse 10 prophesies of the darkening of the Sun and Moon as we are seeing with the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar eclipses in the current Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. Verse 11 states the time of these heavenly signs is part of the final warning in the run-up to the Day of the Lord, and the end time battles that accompany the Return of Christ. We have already noted 2 of the Biblical usages of [moed-H4150] in this article, and the third will nail down direct Biblical evidence of the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses on the Hebrew feast and holy days, beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not only are the Lord’s Feasts emphasized in the assembly of God’s people, along with the Place of the Assembly-like the Tabernacle of the Congregation, but also the annual nature of these feast days take place in recurring prophetic years, as another important Biblical usage of moed.

A great example of this is the recent March 20th, Total Solar Eclipse on Nisan 1. As the opening of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew Calendar, along with Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets divides their calendar in half according to the sacred and civil years. Since we have the darkening of the Sun on both sacred feast days during the Blood Moon Tetrad in 2015, we find the annual nature of these feasts marked by these prophesied heavenly signs between the Blood Moons. The prophetic aspect of the Hebrew Calendar is unique among all timekeeping systems in history, because Almighty God has spun the celestial bodies in their orbits according to His sacred timing, Who sees the end from the beginning. Even as heavenly signs marked the first appearance of Christ on Earth, that came in phases, even so the heavens will announce the Second Coming of Christ. He will return first FOR His Saints, followed in the Second Phase when Christ Returns WITH His Saints. We must keep these phases straight in relation to the heavenly signs marking the general period of His Return. As the Second Coming of Christ grows nearer, the persecution of the enemy becomes more intense.

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, “Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone of a sure foundation. He who believes shall not act hastily.

Joel 2:11-13, 23-27
11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the Day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Those of us with true spiritual strength know that this strength is not of us, but it resides in the completed works of what Christ was accomplished in destroying the works of the devil, [I John 3:8]. As we stand on the Rock Solid foundation of Christ in us, each believer can rest assured that no weapon the enemy brings against us will prevail, until the great and wonderful day, now fast approaching when Jesus Christ returns to put down the enemy and his minions for all time.

12 Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

God’s Will is that all should be saved and come unto a knowledge of the truth, and as the days grow shorter to the Second Coming of Christ, the Heavenly Father is pleading for all people to repent of their evil ways, and turn their hearts unto Him, our merciful and most loving Almighty God, Who is waiting with open arms to forgive us our sins and make us whole in Jesus Christ.

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knows if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?

When our hearts turn completely to God with nothing held back, He showers His abundance upon us in every category of Life, that He is the Master of- the Author of Life. This is the true basis of Joy and rejoicing in our Heavenly Father, as we turn everything over to Him, He gives us more than we could ever ask or think; [Eph. 3:20].

23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. 25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmer-worm, my great army which I sent among you. 26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. 27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

Blood Moon over Jerusalem

Psalm 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.

As the Psalmist tells us above; The Almighty is the One Who appointed the Moon for Seasons!  The Hebrew word for appointed [asah-H6213] is used of God’s creative activity, but is also used of Man in keeping the Passover [Ex.12:48], and man’s faithfulness, [Gen. 32:11]. God set the Moon in its synchronized orbit around the earth to to mark the “seasons” [moed-H4150], or the feasts of His Sacred Calendar. These prominent heavenly signs are ingrained into Hebrew timekeeping practices for thousands of years going back in the OT. This sets the groundwork for the Blood Moons since the lunar cycle has been tied to Hebrew Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles since their inception. The 4th Biblical usage of  [moed-H4150] is found in the category of signs [Ex. 13:8-14] or signals, [Deut. 16:6] including heavenly signs! This brings the context of Joel’s Blood Moon Prophecies full circle in the Biblical usage of moed, and the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses we have already seen in [Joel 2:10, 31], also linked with the 2015 Eclipses on “recurring prophetic years,” in Tishri and Nisan 1. These heavenly signs and wonders from the Hand of the Creator are shown beyond a shadow of doubt, to be sent for our warning and edification in these last days of the Age leading to the Second Coming of Christ. As we have laid out the four Biblical usages of [moed-H4150] we have seen undeniable Biblical evidence for the Blood Moon Tetrads on Hebrew Feast and Holy days throughout the Age of Grace, even into our current day. Our contextual view of Joel 2 and related verses has shown us that God is the One backing up His Word in the heavenly signs that include the Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses of 2014-2015God’s Word establishes this idea in verse 30 below.

Joel 2:30-32
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

God says He is The One showing the wonders in heaven and earth! Its not by chance or natural coincidence that these Blood Moons took place on Hebrew feast and holy days, it is by the design of the Hand of the Almighty… The series of Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses during the Age of Grace is an example of these kind of heavenly wonders God is displaying for us. The prophecy in verse 31 below is the one getting most media attention, but we cannot understand it fully without the context of God’s Word in Joel 2. This verse provides more information for us narrowing the time frame of these solar and lunar signs to before the Great and terrible Day of the Lord comes! The “Last days” technically include the entire Age of Grace, but we are now in the end times since Israel has been reformed as a nation, for the first time in over 2000 years, marked also by the Blood Moon Tetrad of 1948-1949!

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come. 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

But whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be delivered, and those that heed these dire warnings from the Hand of God will share in the glory of the Lord

In a previous Blog post on the March 20th Total Solar Eclipse at the North Pole, we pointed out the celestial mechanism of the precession of the poles, where the pole star has receded from its former position at the star Thuban in Draco the Dragon to Polaris, in the tail of Ursa Minor, the current star at our celestial North Pole. This represents another celestial prophecy of our Coming Lord and Redeemer-Jesus Christ 

 Isa. 52: 1-8.1 Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.2 Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.3 For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.4 For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.5 Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? They that rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am He that doth speak: Behold, it is I. 7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! 8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.

As the decan of Andromeda is pictured in chains, so these chains will be broken by the Coming Christ, the Redeemer, and the captive daughter of Zion will sit down and reign as Queen. The third decan of Pisces is Cepheus, known as Pe-ku-hor, in Egypt, the one who comes the rule.

The decan of Cepheus the Crowned King

cepheus as the crowned king

This not only corresponds with Cepheus as the crowned king, but also relates to the pole star Polaris residing between his feet [Eph. 1:20-23], signifying Christ’s dominion over all Creation as seen in the precession of the poles. These realities are taking place as we speak for the wheels of God’s justice are turning more rapidly as we closely approach the Day of the Lord. We rejoice and are glad as we see this day coming quickly knowing that our enemies will be crushed as all they who oppose the One True Living God!

Passover Blood Moon-April 4th, and Nova Sagittarii 2015


April 4th, Passover Blood Moon and Nova Sagittarii 2015

As a present and primary purpose of this blog, we have been documenting the Biblical Astronomy of the Blood Moon Tetrads, including the current April 4th, 2015 Passover Blood. As with previous Blood Moons in this Tetrad, it has appeared in Virgo, near Spica [Al-Zimach] which means “the Branch of God“- referring to Jesus Christ. Thus the Blood Moon Tetrads have prophesied of Christ and his Second Coming, not only according to the prophecies of Joel, that we have documented in previous posts, but in other ways also. It is thus significant that this Blood Moon takes place both on Passover and the Resurrection Sabbath when Jesus Christ rose from the dead. The Passover is a major feast for Israel signifying their redemption from bondage and exodus from Egypt, while the Resurrection of Christ is a foundation for Christianity and the Gentiles for redemption from the bondage of this world. These heavenly signs also speak loudly of the unity that both Jews and Gentiles have in Christ, as the Apostle Paul relates to us in Ephesians.

Ephesians 2:11-22 (NKJV)

11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Christ Our Peace

14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

Christ Our Cornerstone

19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Without Christ there is no peace, only the same old divisions that still separate Israel from the world. To support these scriptural truths we have the heavens crying out to us in these Blood Moon Tetrads, for people to work together so that all can hear and share these truths of the redemption made available in Christ. Just as God had a plan for the believers of Israel to work with the Gentile believers in the first century Church, so He has a plan for these believers today in the unity of the spiritual body of Jesus Christ. We can see the witness of the stars aligning with the testimony of God’s Word around the unity that God has made for us in Christ. [Eph. 4:3-7]

One aspect that makes Biblical Astronomy so much fun is the Creator has utilized not only these Blood Moon Lunar and Solar Eclipses, as we have just seen in the last two weeks with the March 20th, Total Solar Eclipse on Nisan 1 and the Spring Equinox, but other astronomical signs like planetary conjunctions, meteor showers and even Novae and Supernovas, to speak to us via His heavenly tapestries.  It is thus with great interest that I read about this kind of heavenly sign recently,- a Nova in Sagittarius that appeared on the scene just prior to the Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th. This new star has been dubbed “Nova Sagittarii 2015, #2” and has a very interesting story to tell. This Nova first appeared in Sagittarius in the teapot asterism on March 15th, at the heart of this constellation. According to Sky and Telescope, “the Nova peaked from March 21-22 @ 4.3 magnitude, then dropped to a 5.9 magnitude…”1 Thus it first appears as a new star in Sagittarius just prior to the Total Solar Eclipse on March 20th, and reaches its apex magnitude, as the brightest star in Sagittarius during and immediately after the Total Solar eclipse took place. The graphic below depicts the teapot figure in Sagittarius where the Nova appeared, in relation to the adjacent Constellation Scorpius.

New Star in Sagittarius 2015
Nova Sagittarii 2015

This story however does not end here! Sky and Telescopegoes on to say that after Nova Sagittarii 2015 had brightened with the Total Solar Eclipse, it dimmed from March 23rd through April 2nd, but has “re-brightened to a magnitude of 4.6 as of 4/3/2015…”2 to coincide with the Passover Blood Moon following on 4/4/2015.  The graphic below shows the Teapot asterism in relation to the Sagittarius Constellation star picture where the arrow from the Conquering Christ is aimed at the heart of the Scorpion, seen in its Red Star Antares. In Biblical Astronomy, the Star names of the constellations tell the story seen in the star picture, which we see in the Akkadian name of the star Nunki in the teapot, meaning the Prince of the Earth.3 Also, “the Hebrew and Syriac name of this constellation is Kesith, meaning the Archer [Gen. 21:20], while the Arabic name is Al Kaus-the arrow,” which is Sagittarius in Latin.4

Sagittarius with Teapot Asterism
Sagittarius with Teapot Asterism

We can thus see the original meaning of this constellation preserved in the modern usage, but to remind us of the Almighty’s intent in showing us this star pictureHe has named and numbered the stars [Ps. 147:4] from antiquity. From the Heavenly Father’s Hand, we have a secondary heavenly sign supporting the theme of the Blood Moon Tetrads over the last 200 centuries, with a Nova that appears and re-brightens in synch with the Solar and Lunar eclipses opening the Spring of 2015, warning of the Second Coming of Christ! This is not the first time a Nova or Supernovae has figured prominently as a heavenly sign marking the Promised Seed. In our study of The General Sign, of the Celestial Prelude, leading up to the birth of Christ, a Supernovae was visible for over two centuries. The first decan, or subordinate sign of Virgo was originally called Coma, meaning; the desired or longed for, seen in the Book of Haggai.

Haggai 2:7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.1

In his book Witness of the Stars, E.W. Bullinger documents the perversion of the meaning of the sign and star picture of Coma, by the Greeks, into the hair or wig of Berenice. Coma was originally pictured as a woman holding her child, in the Dendera zodiac, who was the desired one of the nations. It was in this decan of Virgo that around 125 BC, a new star, so bright that it was visible in daytime, suddenly appeared in the head of the holy child seated in the lap of the woman in the sign Coma, pictured below.

Coma a Decan of Virgo
Coma a Decan of Virgo

The new star, or supernova in the head of the infant in Coma, visible for over 200 years, was The General Sign, the Star out of Jacob, [Num. 24:17] that prepared the Magi to watch for the specific aspects of the second part of the Celestial Prelude, which included the Jupiter-Saturn triple unions of 7-6BC in Pisces.  We find this second aspect of Balaam’s prophecy relating to the scepter, symbolic of the reign of the king planet – Jupiter. We have shown in our study conclusively that Jupiter was the planet that the Magi referred to as “his Star” in Matthew 2:2. The Magi had noted the triple Conjunction of signs from 7-6 BC, involving Jupiter and Saturn, that gave them a blueprint for the actual signs marking Christ’s birth, starting in 3 BC. An early sign in August of 3 BC motivated them to begin their caravan to Jerusalem. Both of these aspects of the General and Specific heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ are apparent in our website study on “The Stars Over Bethlehem, providing further details of what the Magi observed in the skies overhead at the Messiah’s birth, both in Virgo and Coma. Even as a new star was prominent marking the birth of Christ, so it seems that new stars or Nova’s are also significant in marking his Second Coming. In some of the Psalms below we find references to the arrows of our King as he rides prosperously through the armies of the enemy. Starting in Psalm 45 we read of the Glories of our Messiah;

Psalm 45: 1-5 (NKJV)

To the Chief Musician. Set to “The Lilies.”[a] A Contemplation[b] of the sons of Korah. A Song of Love.

45 My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever. 3 Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty. And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies; The peoples fall under You.

Psalm 64:7-10 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly they shall be wounded. So He will make them stumble over their own tongue; All who see them shall flee away. All men shall fear, And shall declare the work of God; For they shall wisely consider His doing. 10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and trust in Him. And all the upright in heart shall glory.


Ophiuchus Wrestling the Serpent for the Corona [Crown of dominion]

crown of dominion

Both of these chapters speak of the arrows of Sagittarius as deadly weapons in the hands of our King, the Prince of the EarthJesus Christ. The context of this study on Sagittarius and Scorpius, reveals key background information to understand the bigger picture of the truth seen in these heavenly signs. In the graphic above, the sign above the Scorpion is Ophiuchus, seen battling his dual headed enemy pictured in this Constellation group as the Scorpion and Serpens. This gives us an example of how to take a composite view to glean the truth from the starry signs. Man’s struggle for the crown of dominion against the serpent is highlighted by the temporary wound the serpent inflicts on him, as shown by the Scorpion stinging his heel, [Gen. 3:15]. The star picture of this initial prophecy of the promised seed cannot be fully grasped, unless we take a composite look at these signs [Ophiuchus, Serpens, Sagittarius, Scorpius & Corona]. A case in point we are illustrating in the graphic below relates to the Mayan myth of the end of the World on December 21st, 2012. Our view of this heavenly sign will always be focused more on the Biblical Astronomy than on Heathen myths and astrology. Here the galactic center of the Milky Way Galaxy, is the focus, with the Sun in its midst, as seen in the graphic below from the Voyager17 Astronomy program. This depicts the sky on 12-21-2012, the supposed end of the world in Mayan astrology. The main components of the scene include Sagittarius, representing the returning Lord Jesus Christ, riding his flying white steed in ultimate victory in the spiritual warfare over the dragon and his brood, represented by Scorpius the scorpion and the serpent. The Sun is centered at the tip of Sagittaruis’ arrow, pointed at the red star Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, as it’s simeultaneously being crushed from above by the foot of Ophiuchus.This reveals the light of the world shining his inescapable light on the kingdom of darkness, as he totally exposes the evil works of the enemy while conquering and laying waste to them all.

light on the kingdom of darkness

As The Sun of God arises here with healing in his wings, the light of the world is pictured at the heel of Ophiuchus. This is the heel wounded by the Scorpion, but the sufferings of  Christ’s sacrificial death were only temporary, as they were followed by his resurrection from the dead, signifying his ultimate victory over death. However, the deadly wound Christ inflicts on the serpent in the Lord’s victorious Second Coming. is the final crushing blow that will destroy the works and kingdom of the adversary. Revelation 19 below relates the record of Christ’s victory over the Anti-Christ and his false Prophet at the end of days

Revelation 19:11-21 (NKJV)

Jesus Christ Riding His White Horse

Jesus's return on a white horse | JESUS: In contrast, Jesus Christ Himself is coming on a white horse to ...:


11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had[a] a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean,[b] followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp[c] sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,[d] 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free[e] and slave, both small and great.” 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

The heavens have come alive with numerous signs telling us that the end is near, and the Second Coming of Christ is at hand! We are only months away from the conclusion of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 and with each Blood Moon Lunar and Solar eclipse the heavenly and earthly signs intensify. What are you doing to prepare for the Return of the Lord?
