The Celestial Signs of April 2022 and Passover

Welcome to our monthly blog for April, 2022 which brings a month full of celestial signs, including planetary conjunctions, massings and alignments, many taking place in Capricorn during the month that brings us Passover, in recognition of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ. From the opening of this busy month in the sky, the New Moon starts the show on April 1st. Many religious calendars use the New Moon as markers to open the months of their year, the Hebrew being the among the most familiar in Biblical Astronomy. For the Jews, the New Moon ends the month of Adar and starts the Passover month of Nisan which takes place on April 15, this year. April opens with three bright planets massed low in our east-southeast sky just before sunrise. This was preceded by a triangular massing of Venus-Mars-Saturn in Capricornus on March 28th, 2022. In April 2022, these planets VenusSaturn & Mars are only 6 degrees, apart with Venus to the left, followed by Saturn and then Mars. This was followed three days later according to the U.S. Naval Observatory, in the early dawn on the US east coast, with a close fly-by of Mars and Saturn, as the two approached each other closer than an apparent lunar diameter on April 5th, as seen in Figure 1 below.

5 Thrilling Planetary Conjunctions Are Going To Take Place In April, And Here's How To See Each Of Them. 1

This union of Mars and Saturn, has some interesting implications as Mars can represent blood due to its redness, which is significant during the month of Passover in light of the perfect sinless blood of Christ, that he sacrificed for all humanity. Mars can also represent the Warrior Archangel Michael as he fights for God’s people, against Satan-embodied in Saturn or Satan’s planet. With this conjunction in Capricorn in April, it recalls the same month our Lord was crucified on April 28th, 28 AD, with a planetary conjunction series nearly 2000 years after Christ’s crucifixion, more on this later.

We find all three planets in the constellation Capricorn, which is very notable with Passover taking place, as these 3 bright planets align in Capricornthe Mazzaroth sign that combines the Goat with a fish. Bullinger tells us that; “in the Goat we have the atoning sacrifice, while in the fish we have the people for whom atonement is made.”2  The redeemed multitudes seen in Capricorn’s fish-tail, are also embodied in the adjoining decans of Delphinus the dolphin, and Pisces Australis, the southern fish of the water sign Aquarius3 As Christ embodies the Passover in Israel, his death and resurrection fulfilled the prophecy of Isa. 53sacrificing his life for the sheep. As Bullinger eloquently puts it; “the living fish proceeds from the dying goat, and yet they form only one body. [Eph. 4] That picture which has no parallel in nature, has a perfectly true counterpart in Grace, and the great multitude which no man can number, is redeemed unto eternal life through the death of their redeemer. 4

This seems to link to the two miracles of the fish to open, and during the resurrection arrivals of Jesus’ earthly ministry. As nobody is able to number the great multitude of people redeemed by our Lord Jesus Christ, perhaps it is fitting that the 153 fish netted in this miraculous catch, is not only a number in the infinite Lucas Series of numbers, but it also relates to the geometric growth of the Acts church via the infinite ratios of Pi, and Phi. This is Christ building the Temple of his body. [Gen. 15:5]

Starting around the 8th of AprilJupiter, which was immersed below the horizon during the first week of April, makes an appearance expanding this alignment with the other three planets to make it a foursome. By the morning of April 19, all four planets are aligned in a diagonal line of a little over 30 degrees; from lower left to upper right: JupiterVenus, Mars and Saturn, as seen in Figure 3.

Figure 3. The mid-April Alignment of 4 planets in Capricorn, 2022. 5

Passover, kicks off the Feast of Unleavened Bread or Pesach for the Hebrew Year beginning at sundown on Friday, 15 April 2022, and ends, nightfall on Saturday, 23 April 2022. Thus, during the week of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we find the celestial events, including this planetary alignment in Capricornus following PassoverThe predawn sky on April 19, 2022 in Stellarium shows the alignment of Jupiter, Venus, Mars and SaturnThis alignment is preceded by two planetary conjunctions, the first with Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius on April 12th, and the second on April 18th with Mercury and Uranus in Aries. 6

 

Since it falls during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, this planetary union of MercuryUranus bears a closer look. Mercury-Gabriel is the Messenger archangel who usually brings attention to what he may be introducing. In this case, Uranus is one of the outer planets of the Solar System, and since it was not visible to the naked eye, it does not carry as much press in the Hebrew tradition. However, on April 3rd, 2022, a Lunar occultation of Uranus, occurred which calls our attention, especially when we consider all the other lunar activity taking place with the planets during this time. The idea that the April 18th union of Mercury and Uranus took place in Aries, is also noteworthy, since the celestial chapter of constellations that opened with Capricorn, the dying Goat, closes with Aries the Ram, with life restored via the blood of the Lamb, who takes away the sins of the world, [John 1:29].

In the last week of April, the Crescent Moon takes a snapshot with each of the 4 aligned planets. (Image credit: Stellarium)

The Crescent Moon, looms below Saturn on April 25, Mars on April 26 and finally Jupiter and Venus on April 27. 8 This early morning view of the east-southeast horizon, is greeted the next day with yet another planetary conjunction of Venus and Neptune in Aquarius on April 28th. It is interesting to note that the two planetary unions involving Neptune on the 12th and 28th of April, not only bracket the Mercury-Uranus union on the 18th, but also all the lunar snapshots with each of the 4 aligned planets!

 At a glance, we find the three brightest denizens of the night sky: a 12% lit Crescent Moon, Jupiter 4 degrees top left, and Venus suspended 5 degrees over the slice of lunar light. Venus and Jupiter are separated by 3.2 degrees on the 27th, but only 2 degrees on April 28th, and 1.3 degrees on April 29th. On April 30-May 1, Venus and Jupiter stand together, separated by only .5 a degree in North America. 9 This event occurs during the final week of April with the approaching union of the King Planet Jupiter and Venus, the bright and Morning Star, in Capricornus.

Figure 5. This is the closest Venus-Jupiter conjunction since August 2016(Image credit: Stellarium) 10

The Hebrew name for Capricornus is Gedithe kid or cut off, the same as the Arabic Al Gedi. In Figure 6 below from Robert Wadsworth, we find the star of this name-Algedi in the goat’s horn, with a second star in the goat’sfish’s tail, named Deneb Algedi. This exhibits the unity of the Goat’s sacrificial atonement with the faithful of the spiritual body of his future church, both Jew and Gentile. Many times in Biblical Astronomy the King planet Jupiter plays a key role, as during this time in 28 AD, when we find the King planet in Capricornus, as Jesus finished his earthly ministry. On April 24th, 28 AD, Jupiter was in conjunction with the star Deneb Al Gedi in the fish-tail of Capricornus, as Jesusrulership over the redeemed multitudes seen in Capricorn’s fish-tail, is evident with the Jupiter-Deneb Algedi conjunction in Fig. 6, mirroring the Jupiter conjunction with Venus in Capricorn at the end of April, 2022.

Figure 6Jupiter-Deneb Algedi conjunction seen from Jerusalem on April 24, 28 A.D. 11

 

A key related point with this April 24th sign in Capricornus is this day on the Hebrew calendar was Aviv 10, also the day the Passover Lambs were selected, [Ex. 12:3]. Another meaning of Deneb Al Gedi is the sacrifice comes, which fits since this same day, on Aviv 10 Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a donkey as the perfect sacrifice to redeem all mankind, [Matt. 21:1-11, Zech. 9:9]. 12 

Another celestial sign related to Jesus’ Crucifixion involved the Southern Cross
According to the writings of Richard Hinckley Allen (1838-1908), an expert in stellar nomenclature, the Southern Cross was last seen on Jerusalem’s horizon at 31 degrees 46′ 45″ about the time that Christ was crucified. 13 But due to the Precession of the Equinoxes, a spiraling motion of the Earth’s axis-the Southern Cross shifted out of view further south over the ensuing centuries. The Hebrew name for the Southern Cross is Adom, which means the cutting off, from the prophecy of Dan. 9:26, referencing that the Messiah shall be “cut off.” This corresponds exactly to the Hebrew name for Capricornus as Gedithe kid or cut off, that we saw above in the meaning of the star Gedi. E.W. Bullinger again enlightens us regarding the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet — TAU, which was anciently made in the form of a Cross. 14

Aben Ezra gives the Hebrew name too, of the Southern Cross as Adom, which meanscutting off,as the angel told Daniel of the “cutting off of the Messiah.” And Christ was cut off by being condemned and crucified.”

Joseph Seiss, in his book on the Gospel in the Stars affirms that “the Southern Cross was visible on the horizon of Jerusalem about the time that Christ was crucified. It consists of four bright stars placed in the form of a cross, and is by far the brighest star-group in the southern heavens. Standing directly in the path of the second Decan of Virgo, the double-natured Seed of the woman, and connecting with Libra the price of redemption, it takes the same place in the celestial signs that the Cross of Calvary holds in the Christian system.” 15

Figure 6. The Decan of the Southern Cross. 16

The Southern Cross Constellation

Bullinger discusses how this sign has lost its original meaning of; “It is Finished,” which was Jesus’ last declaration on the Cross at Calgary. As our Lord’s dying declaration, as he gave up his life, for truly none could take it from him, he gave up his “physical” life of the flesh, to obtain eternal life for us all. Christ’s atoning work of redemption is utterly complete and finished when Jesus declared it so. The decan of the Southern Cross is also pictured below in Fig. 7, with Centaurus.

Figure 7. Centaurus with the Southern Cross below Centaurus. 17

See the source image

The Hebrew name for this constellation Bezeh-means despised, which is found in Isa. 53:3; He is despised and rejected of men. The brightest star in the horse’s foreleg; Toliman means the heretofore and the hereafter, marking him as the one which is, which was and which is to come. Sir John Herschell observed this star rapidly growing brighter, making it a possible variable star. 18

From Bob Wadsworth, our late brother in his Biblical Astronomy Newsletter, provided some key historical details on the visibility of the Southern Cross. He showed the “highest position of the Southern Cross seen from Jerusalem in 1000 B.C. At this time, the upper star of the Crux was 17 degrees above the horizon, and the lower star 11 degrees above the horizon. The whole cross was quite visible from Jerusalem around the time of King David.” 19 This links the genealogy of David to Christ through the royal line of Judah.

Wadsworth includes the coordinates of the Southern Cross, seen from Jerusalem on the day of Christ’s Crucifixion as follows; [Newsletter graphics shows] the highest position of the Southern Cross as seen from Jerusalem on April 28, 28 A.D., or the date of the Lord’s crucifixion. The upper star of the Crux was a little over 12 degrees above the horizon, and the lower star was a little over 6 degrees above the horizon. It is most difficult to say if the lower star was visible through atmospheric haze at that time. But it is safe to say that the lower star most likely disappeared from the Jerusalem skies some point between the time of the Lord’s crucifixion and 155 AD, when it was 5 degrees above the horizon at its highest position. Newsletter graphics shows the highest position of the Southern Cross in the year 1000 A.D. Here the upper star is about 6 degrees above the horizon, and the lower star is near 0 degrees. The upper star most likely disappeared from the Jerusalem skies sometime between this date and 1240 A.D., when the upper star was 5 degrees above the horizon at its highest point. This was during the time of the Crusades. 20

The Astronomer Bayer drew the Southern Cross over the hind legs of the Centaur, giving it in his text as moderis crux Ptolemaeo pedes Centauri.” He goes on to say that “it seems remarkable that it was only outlined over the Centaur in the Flamsteed Atlas.” 21

This is unlike the way it is pictured above in Fig. 7, but closer to the way it is found today in the southern hemisphere. Of special interest to our faithful brethren “down under” where autumn is approaching, and the Sun is setting earlier in the southern hemisphere, sunset was at about 6:48 p.m. on April 1, and in Melbourne, Australia it’s at 7:14 p.m. local time. In mid-southern latitudes, by 8:00 p.m. when it is fully dark the Southern Cross was high in the southeastern sky from Melbourne; it is about 40 degrees above the horizon on April 1 (the new moon there occurs at 5:24 p.m. local time on April 1st). The Southern Cross will be above Centaurus, near Alpha Centauri (Rigil Kentaurus). 22

Perhaps our intrepid Michael Toms and some of his “mates” can take a picture of the Southern Crossand post it on the Biblical Astronomy Fellowship Page, with their observations for the rest of us in the Northern Hemisphere? I also want to acknowledge and thank Joseph Damien Cooper for first alerting me to the celestial activity this month, which I’m very thankful for. I can’t always be on top of all the celestial happenings, and the help of wonderful & faithful believers like Joseph, is always much appreciated. He is a great example of how we are the spiritual body of Christ, and we work together to bless each other!

I believe the visible appearance on the horizon from Jerusalem, of the Southern Cross at the time of Christ’s crucifixion, far from chance, served multiple purposes of edification. First, it confirms the Celestial Gospel, reflecting Jesus’ brutal sacrifice on the Cross at Calvary, in a stellar prophecy of the finished work, represented in the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet – TAU,  made in the form of a Cross. A trait of the Gospel in the Stars shows the Creator’s hand in not only forming and making the stars in the skies of the heavens, as a precise timepiece, but also naming and numbering the stars according to His purposes; [Gen. 1:14-19, Ps. 147:4, Isa. 40:26]. This also links the Gospel in the Stars-God’s Word written in the Heavens inseparably with written Scripture. The entire record of OT Scriptural Messianic prophecies of his long-awaited ministry being confirmed, not only in Christ’s birth, ministry, resurrection and Ascension, also confirmed beyond a shadow of doubt in the Gospel of the Stars.

As we recognize Passover and Resurrection Saturday, we certainly have much to consider as we honor and praise our Lord Jesus Christ and his unmatched work of redemption, that freed us from our bondage of the flesh, even as the Jews were freed from their bondage at Passover. As we ever rise above the darkness of this world as the superconqueror we have been made in Christ, this is the only kind of “made man” with eternal rewards.

In Joyful Rejoicing-God Bless!

Comments Off on The Celestial Signs of April 2022 and Passover

Birth of Jesus Christ

Timeline of the Celestial Prelude and the Celestial Encore

Happy New Year to everyone, as we welcome in the Year 2022 with new and exciting prospects for us all!

Much of the unique information concerning the birth of Christ on my blog and website centers around what I have identified as “The Celestial Prelude“, which includes a series of celestial signs leading up to and marking the birth of Christ with both General and Specific celestial signs, that leave little doubt as to the timing of Christ’s appearance on the Earth.

For those of us who realize that Christ was NOT born on Dec. 25th, wonder if there is any Biblical significance to the remembrance of the birth of Christ at this time of year. Since much of the information on this blog and website shows proof of Christ’s birth on Sept. 11th, 3 BC, 1 our certification that the Magi did not arrive in Jerusalem until December of 2 BC and thus could not have been present at the birth of Christ, as the gospel of Matthew records;

Matt. 2:1-2
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King HerodMagi from the east came to Jerusalem
 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.

What Star did the Magi see that led them to Jerusalem? It was the King planet Jupiter that in 7-6 BC was involved in a triple conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in Pisces, that served as a “Celestial Prelude” to the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC, marking the birth of Jesus Christ. The Magi were astronomerkings from the eastern land of Persia, who upon observing Jupiter’s movements, got started on their intrepid journey across about 900 miles of hostile desert territory towards Jerusalem. They did not arrive till December of the next year, when King Herod organized a meeting with his chief priests and teachers of the law.

Matt. 2:3-8
When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born.
5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judahfor out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.” Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appearedHe sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”

As the record denotes King Herod was not interested in “worshipingJesus, since he had all the children two years and under killed in Bethlehem. He would not have done this unless the exact time the star appeared to the Magi was close to the start of this 2-year time frame. The gospel also tells us the Magi found a “young child; paidion” in a Housenot a new-bornbrephos in a manger or Inn when they arrived, [Matt. 2:11]. This is why God warned the Magi of Herod’s treachery in a dream, to avoid Herod and take a different route to return to their homeland.

Matt.2:9-10
After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were over-
joyed
.

The King Planet Jupiter guided the hearts of the Magi to be among the first Gentiles to recognize the only begotten Son of God, as it halted in retrograde motion over Jerusalem and Bethlehem-a few miles to the south. The banner heading this blog post shows the skies with Jupiter standing still in Virgo over Bethlehem, during the winter solstice when the Sun, the light of the world was also standing still. The word “Solstice” means “Sun stands still,” and it is not a coincidence that Jupiter the king planet was standing still over Bethlehem marking Jesus’ birthplace, while the Sun as the light of the world stood still also. What a joy and thrilling time this was for the Magi to follow with precision, the wandering stars or planets as the Creator set them in their orbits and celestial stations, to find the Promised SeedJupiter as “His Star” led the Magi to the dawning day of the Messiah, opening a way through the principles of Biblical Astronomy to the Redeemer-the Lord Jesus Christ.

The premise of a Celestial Prelude is based on the simple fact that God would not ordain the long-awaited birth of His only begotten son, the eternal purpose of the ages, without a little advanced notice. The concept of this Prelude is based on the Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunctions of 7-6 BC. The triple union of 7-6 BC imparts a basis for the Magi to recognize the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Regulus in 3-2 BC, as the Specific signs marking the birth of Christ. This prelude has two parts, the first-General the second-Specific. Confusion of these two separate parts of the Celestial Prelude has caused much uncertainty surrounding the “Star of Bethlehem.” A good place to start thinking about the first part of this Prelude is: Where did the popular idea of a single bright star, obvious to all, marking Christ’s birth originate? The answer is found in what I referred to above as the General Sign of the Celestial Prelude, alerting the Magi to the broader period when Jesus- the promised seed would appear. The first decan, or sub-ordinate sign of Virgo was originally called Coma, seen in the Blog header above as the “L” shaped sign next to Virgo, meaning; the desired or longed for, as in the Book of Haggai.

Haggai 2:7.

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.

Figure 1. The Decan of Virgo [holding the branch to the right] named Coma with the Mother and Child in her lap. [Dendera Zodiac] 2
witness of the stars

Numbers 24:17

17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

There is a celestial double meaning [Num. 24:17] in the phrase: Star out of Jacob, with connotations for both the general and specific aspects of our Celestial Prelude. The new star, or supernova in the head of the child in Coma, visible for over 275 years, was the General sign, the Star out of Jacob, preparing the Magi  to watch for the Specific aspects of the 2nd part of the Celestial Prelude, which included the Jupiter-Saturn triple unions of 7-6 BC in Pisces. We find this second aspect of Balaam’s prophecy relating to the scepter, symbolic of the reign of the king Planet-Jupiter. As we progress through our study it is evident that Jupiter was the planet that the Magi called “his Star” in Matthew 2:2. The Magi noted the triple Conjunction of signs from 7-6 BC, of JupiterSaturn, that gave them a blueprint for the actual signs marking Christ’s birth, starting in 3BC. An early sign on August 12th, 3 BC motivated the Magi to begin their caravan to Jerusalem. Details for both aspects of the General and Specific celestial signs marking the birth of Christ are found in the study on “The Stars Over Bethlehem, along with the chart below, furnish the detailed observations of the Magi observed in the skies overhead at the Messiah’s birth, in both Virgo and ComaThe first decan of Virgo called Coma, is seen in the Dendera zodiac as a seated mother nourishing her young son-[Figure 1]. Coma is the Hebrew name of this sign meaning “the desired.” The Egyptian name of this decan of Virgo was Shes-nu the desired son, [Hag. 2:7]. 3

The Prophet Daniel taught the Magi and other astronomers of the king Nebuchadnezzar’s court [Dan. 5: 11] about these planetary unions from the contemporary example of a Jupiter-Saturn triple union 523-522 BC in Virgo. Less than 400 years later, near 128 BC a new star as the Coma supernova exploded onto the scene, in this decan of the sign Virgo in the head of the child called Coma. This is a key when we remember that much of this history was based on the teachings of the Prophet Daniel, who became master of the Magi, and the Chaldeans and stargazers of the King’s Court in Babylon. He continued to preside over this august group in the reign of Darius I, [Dan. 6:1-3] when the Persians took control of the Babylonian empire. As a Prophet and man of God-the positive influence of Daniel on the genuine sect of the Magi, was felt in a profound way centuries later as the Magi, following Daniel’s principles, correctly identified Jesus the Promised Seed in Bethlehem. Not all the Magi of the Kings courts in Babylon or Persia remained true to Daniel’s teachings, as certain other magi sects emulated the dark paths of the occult and Astrology, as Magicians who lead people astray into counterfeit paths, that remain with us into modern times. But Daniel’s impact on the astronomical doctrines of these Gentile scientists, allowed the genuine Magi to pursue the widely held belief in the general sign marking the coming Messiah during this period in history. Obviously, the Magi were aware of the truths of the Celestial gospel concerning the coming redeemer, following the principles of the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs going back to Adam, Seth, Abraham and Job, since it was their unrivaled expertise in Astronomy that led the Magi disciples to Jerusalem following Jupiter, in the first place.

In more modern times, Johannes Kepler provided an applicable theme of the history of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions that maps the celestial activity of these planetary kings in leading to and marking the birth of Christ.

Figure 2. The Jupiter-Saturn Great Conjunction triangle from Kepler in his De Stella Nova: 4

Kepler mapped, the progress of grand conjunctions of Jupiter-Saturn through the zodiac describing a series of equilateral triangles (Fig. 2). Every sixty years a triangle is completed, and the conjunction returns to start, shifting however nine degrees anticlockwise in respect to its predecessors, thus generating a cycle of 800 years. Thus, the overarching cycle is really a set of interlocking smaller cycles, each inside the other, lasting 20 years, 200 years, 800 years, and 2,400 years. 5 Jupiter and Saturn enter into a regular union about every 20 years. During the last millennium BC, however, no less than 7 triple conjunctions also took place – one every 140 years, on average – as the interval varied from 40 years (as between 861 and 821 BC and again between 563 and 523 BC), to 377 years (as between 523 BC and 146 BC). Over the millennium there were 43 “normal” Jupiter-Saturn unions and 7 “triple” conjunctions. In the Timeline Chart below we have mapped key Jupiter-Saturn unions during the period of visibility of the Coma Supernova, since this marked a center point of multi-cultural Messianic expectations.

Plate 1. Jupiter-Saturn Timeline Chart

This chart shows not only the time frame of the visibility of the Coma Supernova, but also pertinent Jupiter-Saturn unions related to this Celestial Prelude along with key Blood MoonsHalley’s Comet, the Rev. 12 signs, and the Jupiter-Regulus triple union of 3-2 BCall linked to the birth of Christ and the Temple at Jerusalem being destroyed. It thus seems fitting with John 2:19 where Jesus says to “Destroy this temple” that the destruction of the Temple was prophesied by Christ, just as the Temple veil was rent in twain at his crucifixion, since the spiritual body of Christ replaced the stone temple. [Jn. 2:19, Matt. 26:61, Mk. 14:58]

Zech. 6:12-13 “Thus speaks the Lord of Hosts, saying behold the man whose name is the Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the Temple of the Lord.” v. 13 “Even he shall build the Temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.” [king-priest unity]

My theses is based on this historical Timeline of the events leading to the birth of Christ, highlighted by Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions, along with other categories of notable and related celestial signs. The pattern of General celestial signs, leading to increasingly Specific signs that ultimately revealed Christ’s birth, is one that we have documented in detail, over the last 20+ years of Biblical Astronomy research. This part of the story is pretty well documented, on my blog and website, having been recently established in the Acts 2 teachings of Rev. Jon Nessle. It is Jon’s love of Scripture, and his heart to teach the principles of Biblical Research that led me to his unparalleled teaching ministry, and series of classes that have and continue to enthrall and bless so many of us, consistently breaking new ground in God’s Word with each class.

The Birth of Christ, and the events leading up to it including the Celestial Prelude, belong in a class of celestial signs considered as an aspect of God’s Light. Since the Creator is the Father of lights, He has set the parameters wherein His light was revealed to the world, exposing the darkness.

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 enlightening His Creation in the Heavens and Earth before the Sun, Moon and Stars were set in the heavens in verses 14-17. This division between light and darkness took place first in the Spiritual realmnot the physical, as a result of the fallout from Lucifer’s revolt with his 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 with the many other consequences of original sin in the physical realm. This lead to the 1st Heaven and Earth becoming without form and void, because we know the Perfect Father of lights did not and could not have created it in this state of ruin. As such the Creator and Father of Lights not only preceded, but also was far above and beyond the spiritual corruption resulting from the Original Sin of the angels in Lucifer’s revolt.

It is critical to realize that part of the Creator’s eternal purpose to rectify this destruction caused by the original sin of the angels led by Lucifer in the 1st Heavens and Earth, included the appearance of God’s only begotten Son of the Heavenly Father-Jesus Christ. This includes not only all the prophecies and promises of the coming Christ written in Scripture, but also the Celestial Gospel written in the Stars, long before God’s recorded Words were written in Stone or on papyrus. God recorded the Witness of the Stars starting in Genesis 1:14-17, when He created, named and numbered the stars in Heaven, enlisting their divine purpose from their inception, [Ps. 147:4]. This included all the star prophecies of the Coming Redeemer, with all aspects of the Celestial Prelude leading to the Star of Bethlehem.

It is with this in mind, that I want to introduce a subsequent aspect of Biblical Astronomy teachings, built upon the foundation of the Celestial Prelude of the last 20+ years. As we can see in the Timeline above, we began documenting the history of Celestial signs leading to the General Sign of the Coma Supernova starting in history around 200 BC. Part of my thesis states that this pattern of Celestial signs marking the first appearance of Christ, forms a blueprint for his return, his long-awaited Second Coming. A central aspect of living in the end-times is to be prepared for the Return of Christmankind’s Great and only Hope! Since the beginning of this research project, the pattern of these celestial signs has come into sharper focus, according to multiple historical accounts, the General Sign of the Coma Supernova was visible to the naked eye for about 275 years. The Supernova explosion in the head of the woman’s child, amounted to a celestial prophecy of Christ’s first coming that would remake all history forever, for mankind! It was the appearance of this Coma Supernova sign that started God’s sacred celestial timepiece, with the Specific signs ticking down to the birth of Christ! It is only fitting and logical that the Heavenly Father’s sacred timepiece set in the heavens should also include the keys to the general timing of the appearance of Christ’s Return. Just as there was a general expectation in various cultural populations for the appearance at the Messiah’s birth, so there is in modern times, for his Return.

Since the Coma Supernova was preceded and followed by other notable celestial signs leading to Christ’s birth, it may behoove us to check for other celestial signs in the Celestial Encore that fit the blueprints we have uncovered in the Celestial Prelude. One of the keys we might look for in an end-time pattern of celestial signs that fit the Celestial Prelude, logically would be signs according to an inverse order in which they took place the first time around. One example of this would involve the Coma Supernova being the first Celestial sign marking the start of a series of increasing celestial signs leading to Christ’s birth-as a Prelude. To complement this, the Celestial Encore might include a supernova sign that would take place, not as a prelude, but as more of a sign leading to a Celestial finale, mirroring a series of concluding celestial signs that marked the birth of Christ.

Some key indicators along these lines include celestial signs, myself and others have pointed out and detailed that fit the description of signs showing characteristics of the Celestial Prelude. We have seen signs conforming to the Rev. 12 sign, as an example, not to mention a series of Blood Moon Tetrads capped off recently in 2014-2015, showing key links to Bible prophecy related to end-time Israel. We have also seen a series of celestial signs related to the Great Pyramid and the Giza Plateau as a whole, related to a series of celestial signs very similar to those at the birth of Christ, in September of 2017, close to Rosh Hashanah. With a sharp eye to how these signs may fit into the end-times sky-scape, we continue to do the work the Lord has called us to.

As thankful recipients of the awesome Grace of our Heavenly Father, Who has fathered us by creating His spirit within us, so we can worship Him in spirit and truth. As we grow into his spirit we also seek out the traits our Heavenly Father has passed unto us, to best apply them in our practical Christian daily walk, and fellowship in Christ!

The things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God.” Only the Infinite can know the infinite. Forever God stands apart outside and above the temporal world, in unapproachable light, but in Christ, we are welcomed in His Love. With these keys in mind, we remain vigilant in the Hope of Christ’s Return, with our heads to the sky!!

God Bless!

Comments Off on Timeline of the Celestial Prelude and the Celestial Encore

Orion, the Pleaides, the Great Pyramid and Precession. Pt. 2


We concluded Part 1 of this study last month by noting key apex alignments, of the Great Pyramid first with Al Nitak-the [wounded one] and lead star on Orion’s Belt, on Rosh Hashanah of 2017. This was a prophecy of the sacrifice that the “wounded one” endured for all mankind, appearing on the anniversary of Christ’ birth on 9-11-3 BC. Also, the “Scored lines in the Great Pyramid’s Descending Passage were aligned to the star Alcyone of the Pleiades-the foundation star, as a 2nd apex alignment of the Great Pyramid, providing a stellar link between Al Nitak and the central star of the PleiadesAlcyone. There is also a 3rd type of Pyramid alignment on Al Nitak, that we highlight below in Figure 6, from the King’s Chamber star shaft. In this study, we focus on the Biblical Astronomy of the Great Pyramid, Al Nitak on Orion’s Belt, and the Pleiades star cluster.

Job 38:31-32  Can You bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose Orion’s Belt? Can you bring out the signs of the Zodiac [mazzoroth] in their season, or guide Aldebaran and its satellite stars? Did you proclaim the rules that govern the heavens, or determine the laws of Nature on the Earth? [REV]

To get the full picture of how the Belt Stars of Orion impact the narrative of this study we should notice their biblical usage. Job 38 is the first of two obvious references to Orion in Job, that we will considerJob 38:31, specifically refers to Orion’s Belt above, signifying the three stars as a unit in this verse. Since God’s Word refers to these three stars as a unit, and they are a celestial reflection of the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau, then perhaps we should treat these three Pyramids as a unit also. This is key as we consider a master-plan for the structures of the Giza Plateau, but also good advice considering the rhetorical questions of these verses, since it was the Creator WhoBound the cluster of the Pleiades, and the belt of Orion.” The implication here is that any attempts by man to counteract the actions of the Almighty in binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosing Orion’s Belt, would be to man’s own detriment, since men did notproclaim the rules that govern the heavens, or determine the laws of Nature on the Earth! It also implies the roots of a master-plan both with the celestial and terrestrial versions of this image. This point of the Creator’s emphasis of genesis, that He Made everything from nothing, is brought home in the opening words of the following scriptural references mentioning Orion and the Pleiades together. It also points out the folly of those who emphasize their idol astrological cults, as opposed to the Scriptural approaches of Biblical Astronomy.

Figure 1. The correlation of the 3 Orion’s Belt stars with the 3 Pyramid’s of the Giza Plateau. 1 

These are key references in the types or categories of biblical Orion references” that we can identify. A second aspect of Orion reference is the appearance of the Pleiades star cluster in each of the 3 verses with Orion; [Job 9:9, 38:31, Amos 5:8]. The link between the 3 stars of Orion’s belt and the three Pyramid’s at Giza is established by the King’s Chamber star shaft alignment of the Great Pyramid, with the star-Al Nitak, the “buckle or 1st star of Orion’s Belt, referencing again Christ’s Sacrifice as the “wounded one” on the cross.

The idea that the three stars of Orion’s Belt are a celestial reflection of the 3 Pyramid’s of Giza, is also key since
it is not by chance that Orion’s belt is situated on the celestial equator-directly reflecting the Giza Plateau in the Earth’s equatorial belt zone, where these 3 Pyramid’s were founded. This is in fact, a central aspect of the “Orion Correlation Theory,” with celestial and terrestrial beltsreflecting each other. But much more, it suggests an aspect of the Creator’s master-plan, based on the Great Pyramid’s support of Scripture including both Orion and the Pleiades together in these Bible references. Could this be directing our attention to the passages and star shafts of the Great Pyramid, and their interrelated alignments? In this light, we should recall the previous relation pointed out, linking the Descending Passage alignment on the Pole Star (Alpha Draconis), with the “Scored Lines,in Fig.2- showing their alignment on the Pleiades above the Pyramid’s apex at Alcyone, as another way of illustrating the transitory demise of the fallen Morning Star, giving way to the new Ascendant Morning Star-and capstone Jesus Christ.

Figure 2. The Great Pyramid’s apex alignment with the star Alcyone of the Pleiades star cluster. 2

Within the Descending passage of the Great Pyramid this set of ‘scored lines’ in the wall, point to the star Alcyone, of the Pleiades seen in Figure 2.  The Descending Passage was aligned to the north pole, during the pyramid’s construction age, but the alignment of the scored lines with the star Alcyone occurred only on two specific dates: 2123 BC and 3440 BC. Close to the later date, Piazzi Smyth calculated that Thuban was 3 degrees 43 m. from the pole at a lower culmination in 2170 BC, indicating the fallen nature of the 1st Morning Star when Thuban was on the meridian below the pole, as the Pleiades were on the meridian above the pole at the autumnal equinox, above the Great Pyramid’s apex. 3

Another scripture in Job where Orion and the Pleiades are mentioned together is in Job 9. This depicts yet another north polar Decan that bears” a deeper look. In Job 9:9 it seems theBear” was added to the guest list of this celestial party as seen below. In Ursa Major below, the handle of the Big Dipper asterism is formed by the stars of the bear’s tail, as  the dipper is part of the bear’s thigh, which is how it was pictured in ancient Egypt’s Dendera Zodiac, before 3000 BC.

Job 9:9 He made the BearOrion, and the Pleiades, And the chambers of the south;

Ursa Major constellation illustration

Ursa Major seen above, called the Great Bear is the largest constellation in the northern hemisphere. The Latin name means greater she-bear. Ursa Major is the larger bear in contrast with nearby Ursa Minor, also called the lesser bearUrsa Major is one of the original 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy in the noted 2nd century BC, work known as the Almagest, containing the asterism known as the Big Dipper. This asterism has two bright stars Dubhe and Merak, that have been used as a navigational pointer. These two stars Dubhe and Merak, point out the current north pole star, Polaris, as seen in the graphic below. The brightest star Dubhe means a herd or flock of animals. The Hebrew word linked to the star nameDubhe,” is Dohvermeaning a fold. A related Hebrew wordDohveh means rest or security,  giving us what Bullinger calls the security or resting place for the greater and lesser sheepfolds of the Saints, the redeemed of the Jews and Gentiles

Figure. 3 Polaris is the northern Pole star located in the decan of Ursa Minor. 5

The line formed by the two stars Dubhe and Merak points directly to Polaris, the northern pole Star of the lesser fold in Usra Minor, located between the feet of Cepheus the Crowned King at the North Pole. This embodies Jesus Christ ascended, and seated in the heavenlies at God’s right hand, ruling over the entire panoply of stars centered on the Pole, while guarding the 7 stars of his Churches. The star Polaris -the current northern pole star, that inherited its position via the precession of the poles, from Thuban, or Alpha Draco-the archaic pole, that the Descending Passage was aligned on during the construction of the Great Pyramid, is seen in Fig. 4 below.

Figure 4. The Great Pyramid’s Descending Passage aligned on Alpha Draconis [Thuban] the ancient Pole star. 6

As we have seen, the Scriptures record Lucifer’s failed coup’ against the Almighty, and his resulting ejection from Heaven to Earth, with a third of the Angels, [Rev. 12:7-13]. The ancients believed that mankind’s spiritual enemy, symbolized by the Serpent-tempter in the Garden of Eden, [Gen. 3:1ff] or the astronomical dragon constellations, had caused humanity to sin, destroying the idyllic age, in Earth’s Original Paradise. As seen above in Figure 4, the former pole star Thuban of Draco, was aligned down the Pyramid’s Descending Passage in 2144 BC, into the “Bottomless Pit” below the base of the Pyramid. This tellsnarrative in the megaliths of the Great Pyramid, with the Dragon Decan, shining over the Descending Passage, not only of the serpent’s former position as lead Arch-Angel in the 1st Heavens and Earth, but also his desire to take as much of humanity down in destruction with him, just as he did with his third of the heavenly angels.

In contrast, the “Scored Lines” of the Descending Passage were aligned on the Pleiades 7-star cluster, that embody the sweet influences of God’s Blessings on His people. The Pleiades cluster is found on the back of the Great charging BullTaurus– who depicts the swiftly returning Lord. The cluster of 7 churches are under the watchful eye of the Lord, as seen in the eye star of the Bull-named Aldebaran, the Head or mighty Captain. This gives us a hint of part of the mystery of the seven stars [I Thess. 4:13-17], because when the Lord returns first, he will raise those saints asleep in Jesus, as God brings them with the Lord, [v.14, 17]. They will be immediately followed by the remaining Saints who are alive at his return. This remains a mystery since only the Heavenly Father knows when this long-awaited gathering will occur. Thus in the oldest book in the Biblical canon- the book of Job, we find the Pleiades and Orion mentioned together, foreshadowing the union of the returning Christ, in the Charging Bull-Taurus coming for the redeemed in his 7 churches.

Orion is thus a symbol of the perfect Man and hero, embodied in Christ represented in Joshua the Hebrew warrior. The name “Joshua,” in Hebrew is the equivalent of “Jesus,” showing an aspect of the dual symbolism of Orion as both the fallen and risen Morning Star. We find in this Biblical reference to Orion, the 2nd of three in Job [9:9, 38:31] also [Amos 5:8], evidence showing Orion’s initial prominence as the figurative light of heaven. If Orion’s belt-line to Sirius (the Dog-star) is realized, then we find the stars of Orion’s belt symbolizing Lucifer’s choral units of angels under his domain, girt about his loins; [Ezek. 28:12-19] This description of Orion’s Belt figuratively resembles the portrait of the king’s glory found in Ezek. 1:25-28, over the heads of the Cherubim.

Ezek. 1:25-28.
25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings. 26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round-about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

The Great Orion Nebula. 7

To the naked eye, the Orion Nebula appears as a blurred central star in Orion’s Sword, south of Orion’s Belt.

This appearance of fiery glory, of the enthroned man in Heaven, above and below his loins is a manifestation of light, since v. 28 describes it as a rainbow or light spectrum. This resembles the midsection of Orion, closer than any other celestial image that comes to mind, as the name Orion means ‘light of heaven.’ This description also fits the scene mentioned in Rev. 4, of the throne-room, after the resurrections. From v. 27 abovefrom the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As we view this sector below Orion’s Belt, a most prominent area of the sky centers on The Great Orion Nebula; M42 in Orion’s Sword. As Rev. 1:16 reminds us; he that 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 shining in its strength. [Rev. 19:15, 21] This tells of the Lord’s destruction of the serpent enemy by the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God.

The Sword of Orion below his belt stars is identified with the Messier Object M42.

Lucifer as the angel of light in his first estate, had dominion over the angels in the dawn of time. Once Lucifer fell, his role as the “light of heaven” was stripped from him and set aside, to be transferred and superseded in the rising daystar, who washed out the brilliance of the fallen Morning star with his own Sunrise, symbolized in the Heliacal Rising of Sirius. We are reminded of this imagery, again in Job 38:12-13 [Revised English Bible] as the ancient Egyptians recorded in their daily observations of the skies, when the brilliant light of dawn ‘shakes the Dog-star from the Sky, and in v. 15 ‘when the light of the Dog-star is dimmed, and the stars of the Navigator’s line go out one by one.’ This sky depiction of the fall of the first Morning Star, while dimming and extinguishing his light, drowned out in the Sonrise of the ages, shows the astronomical reality of the truth of Christ’s preeminent light in Scripture, and in the heavens.

 

The center of these seven stars of the Pleiades, was Alcyone which was the target of the “Scored Lines,” showing the escape from the destruction of the Descending Passage, aligned through the Pyramid’s apex, in Fig. 2. This alignment of the Scored Lines was defined by actual observations at midnight of two consecutive Autumn Equinoxes, in 2145 BC, and on Sept. 22, 2144 B.C., when this conjunction took place. This allows us to see how the Great Pyramid encompasses the juxtaposition of Good and Evil, in the path down the Descending Passage into the pit, set against the apex aligning of the seven stars of the 7 churches, [Rev. 1:16-20], held in the hand of the Lord. Just as the Ascending Passage leads away from the downward spiral of the Descending Passage, so we are afforded an escape from a bleak demise in the pit. Here we find this message of Hope in the Pyramid’s passages, in agreement with the truth of Scripture, for all mankind in Christ our Savior, as a witness to the world in its last remaining architectural wonder. The last and only Hope for mankind thus resides exclusively in Jesus Christ, (Isaiah 14: 12-15, 19: 19-20) as he represents the Alpha/Omega singularly embodied in the Lord, as mankind’s Hope of salvation.

Can you bind the SWEET INFLUENCES of Pleiades? (Job 38:31) Make no mistake, no part of the mystery was ever revealed in the Celestial Gospel, prior to these truths being revealed in the Church Epistles of the New Testament by the  Apostle Paul. However, once the scriptural truths were revealed, it became possible with spiritual hindsight to see glimpses of these truths from a New Testament perspective. Peter speaks of this in [1 Pet. 1:8-13] where the faithful persist to see the end of their journey- the completion of their redemption and the salvation of our souls. Which Salvation the prophets inquired and searched diligently, but they could find no evidence of the graceful gap of time called the age of grace between the sufferings of Christ and the glory that should follow…which the angels desire to look into.

Figure 5. Orion’s belt alignment on the Pleiades above Taurus vs. Sirius below in Canis Major. 8

This mystery of the seven stars can also refer to the Angel’s first estate prior to their revolt, when Lucifer as the Bright and Morning Starled the angels as Morning stars and sons of God, in their collective shouts of joy, praising the Almighty, [Job 38:7, Isa. 14:12-20, Ezek. 28:12-19]. But once iniquity was found in Lucifer, he was cast out of heaven, taking 1/3 of the angels down with him; [Rev. 12:7-9]. This graphic in Fig. 5 reveals an alignment between Orion’s Belt and the 7 stars of the Pleiades, providing a unique perspective of a third Biblical mention of these asterisms in unison.

Amos 5:8 He made the Pleiades and Orion; He turns the shadow of death into morning And makes the day dark as night; He calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the face of the earth; The Lord is His name.

The fall of Lucifer transformed him into the angel that casts the shadow of death in the precession of the pole stars from Thuban of Draco, to Polaris or Al Rucabba, of Ursa Minor. And as we just witnessed above in the Revised English Bible version of Job 38:12-15, the light of the Fallen Morning Star was extinguished in the brilliant dawn of the Ascendant Morning Star Jesus Christ, who embodies the turning of the shadow of death into morning, as told by Amos.

Seek Him that made the seven stars and Orion, and turned the shadow of death into the morning, and made the day dark with night: that called for the waters of the sea, and poured them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name …”  [Amos 5:8] KJV

In the ancient Chinese Lunar Zodiac under Emporer Yao, the Pleiades star cluster was among the earliest of Lunar houses on record, dating to 2357 BC, when the central star Alcyone of the Pleiades was near the vernal equinox. 9 Throughout ancient Astronomy, and in the cosmology of ancient Egypt, one of the four-corners or pillars of heaven has always been the vernal equinox. This prominent recognition of the vernal equinox in ancient Astronomy is a major indicator of the consensus of the recognition of the precession of the equinoxes in early antiquity. This key linkage in ancient Egypt, between Orion’s 3 belt-stars and Sirius, not only ties the Sothic Calendar to the vernal point as a precessional marker, but also the lunar zodiac and the sidereal year, as seen in with the ancient Chinese astronomers also. Biblically, the 7 stars of this famed cluster; [Job 9:9, 38:31] are referred to collectively as a “heap or accumulation, and the congregation of the judge or ruler,” the ascendant Morning Star Jesus Christ, said also to be referenced in Rev. 1 as a mystery.”

Rev. 1:20
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.

Here we find the unity of the angelic realms with the 7 churches of Christ’s spiritual body, in the one accord of harmony in Christ’s return. 

We see hints of this imagery embodied in the Pleiades also in Milton’s description of Creation at the dawn of the world, in Paradise Lost; where he says of the Sunthe Dawn and the Pleiades before him danc’d, shedding sweet influence. 10 

 There is also a fable linked to one of these seven stars, that was lost in infamy. The Poet Aratos wrote;

As seven their fame is on the tongues of men, though six alone are beaming on the eye… 11 

Pleiades Star Map

Image result for Pleiades images

This fable can be traced historically, to the disappearance of the 7th Pleiad star in the time of the Trojan War [1194-1184 BC], where according to Rolleston, “the star shot like a comet towards the North pole,” leaving only six main Pleiad stars. One of these was named “Maia” in Greek, tracing to the Chinese “Mao,” preserving the ancient Chinese historical roots of this Pleiad, in their Lunar Zodiac of the 23rd Century BC. 12 This reveals the historical influence of the Lunar Mansions, and their role in understanding luni-solar cycles with star cycles and the sidereal year. A “sidereal year” is the period of the Sun’s transit over the Meridian of the same fixed star on the ecliptic, consisting of 365.256 days. The Dogon of West Sudan, and the ancient Egyptians, made use of the Sothic Calendar based on the Dog-Star Sirius of Canis Major, the brightest star in the heavens, as the basis of their star religions. As the Creator timed the stars and planets into orbit, He set the sacred 50-year Hebrew Jubilee period, first seen in astronomical history in the path of the star Sirius B,” and its 50-year orbit around SiriusA.” We have shown evidence that Bible Patriarchs, like Noah also recognized the Sirius cycle, which is covered in our website study on Noah’s Calendar. The Sumerians and Babylonians also shared  the use of sidereal calendars based on Sirius’ binary system, with the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, as a mainstay in their idol pantheons, applying a symbolic link to the Morning Star in both Venus and Sirius, the Dog-star. Ancient Egypt however, had the strongest ties to Sirius, as they called it the Nile Star, since its annual rising would coincide with the Nile floods, upon which their agriculture depended. The star Sirius was notable in Great Pyramid astronomy, whose Southern Star shaft of the Queen’s Chamber, was aligned on Sirius-seen below, in Fig. 6.

Figure 6. The Star Shaft alignments of the Great Pyramid.

Just above the Queen’s Chamber is the southern star shaft of the King’s Chamber, aligned on the lead star of Orion’s beltAl Nitak, the wounded one. This also depicts an astronomical relation between Orion’s Belt and the star Sirius, found in Figure 5 above, as the three Orion Belt Stars point towards Sirius the dog-Star. What follows is an important part of our thesis that establishes Sirius’ dual symbolism, linked with the Morning Star. A well-established standard of astronomical navigation is finding the rising point of Sirius once Orion has risen at least 20 degrees, by extending the so-called Navigator’s Line [Fig. 5] of the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt to the horizon.

The Dogon celestial mythology says that the cycle of Sirius B,” a White Dwarf companion star in joint orbit with Sirius A“, is a 50-year cycle, a fact verified by modern astronomers. Thus, it is instructive to see how half the fifty-year cycle of Sirius B exhibits the luni-solar kinship inherent in the 50-year cycle of Hebrew Jubilees, according to the golden section, or phi ratio. This is central to the celestial coordination of the luni-solar cycle, along with the Sirius star cycle as the three major calendars referred to in Gen. 1:14-16. Since the Sirius year, or Sothic Calendar as the Greeks called it, requires highly advanced knowledge of the heavens, capable of selecting the lone star in the sky that dictates a year365¼ days long, we find more support for these advanced astronomical practices centuries prior to Abraham.

The Stars of the “Navigator’s Line” in Orion’s Belt and sword with Sirius to the left.

navigator's line

Stars of the Navigator’s Line go out one by one“- These stars of the Navigator’s line-the three belt stars of Orion, that “go out, or are extinguished, one by one” as the sunrise of dawn washes out their nocturnal brilliance. This imagery fits a symbolic portrait of 1/3 of the stars of the heavenly host, under Lucifer’s domain, taken down with him when he fell from grace, resulting from his mutiny in the First Heavens and Earth. Their light was snuffed out due to their revolt as they were broken in the light of the rising daystar, the ascendant Jesus Christ. When we read this rendering of Job 38, in light of the Heliacal Rising of Sirius, the truth of this text lying hidden here for millennia finally comes to the surface.  This is most fitting since Job and Genesis, are the only books addressed to the Age of Biblical Patriarchs, whose gospel was the stars! This also shows the high degree of sophistication in the Astronomy of the Biblical Patriarchs at a very early time in the antediluvian age. This is a witness to the ancient knowledge of the Sothic cycle in Job, based on the cycles of the dog-star Sirius, related to Orion’s belt, illustrating how the Patriarch Job provided a transition in Biblical Astronomy, from the principles of the Patriarchal Age with the Gospel in the Stars, to those of the Old Testament Law, to Christ and Grace.

This indirect reference to Orion in light of the imagery of the Dog-star Sirius, is worthy of our focused attention. Following the theme of Sirius’ dual symbolism, first as the angel of light, the first light of the world fallen from grace, this motif is also seen in the fact that Sirius remains the brightest star in the heavens even today, yet with negative symbolism, telling us how Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light in [I Cor. 11:14]. The gist of this is told in the Iliad, in words by Homer: “âs the star which rises in late summer, called among men Orion’s Dog [Sirius]; bright it shines forth, yet it is a baleful sign, for it brings to suffering mortals much fiery heat.” Homer continues: “Whose burning breath taints the red air with fevers, plagues and death.”13 As we are reminded of the Revised English Bible for Job 38:15, we find a special insight that reads as follows:

Job 38:15 When the light of the Dog-star is dimmed and the stars of the Navigator’s Line go out one by one?

The Hebrew word: “rosh” [H7218] rendered “Dog-star” in Job 38: 13 & 15 of the REB, is the root word for [H7222-roshah], also in Zech. 4:7 reads “headstone,” or “Chief cornerstone” [Ps. 118:22, Eph. 2:20, 5:23]. This version of “Sirius” as the “prince of the Heavenly host” was also referenced in Persia’s sacred books as “Tistar,” the “Chieftain of the East,” as it caught the first rays of the dawn before sunrise of a new day. This “new day” was key not only for the light of that 24- hour period, but also because for “3000 years, the Heliacal Rising of Sirius opened the New Year in old Egypt.”14

The Belt Stars of Orion and the Dog Star-Sirius of Canis Major. 15

Figure 19: The three belt stars of Orion point directly to Sirius or Dog Star. Sirius is part of the Canis Major or Greater Dog constellation.

From the reference above to the Heliacal Rising of Sirius in Job 38:15, we find the New Year’s celebrations in ancient Egypt foreshadowing a transition of spiritual power from the archaic Morning Star to the risen Daystar, Jesus Christ. [Pet. 1:19-21]

The fifty-year shared standard between the Sothic Calendar and the Hebrew Jubilee is an intriguing bit of astronomical history with powerful spiritual overtones of the ancient influences of the Biblical Patriarchs, with God’s foreknowledge. In the 50- year half-cycle of the Sothic calendar we find revealing mathematics related to the lunar cycle. According to Schwaller de Lubicz: The 25-year cycle corresponded to 309 lunations. The calculations are:

25 x 365 = 9125 days, and 9125 = 29.5307 days per lunation [309]

This in itself reveals extremely accurate observations. Modern Astronomy reckons the lunation as 29.53059 days, a difference of about a second. But Schwaller de Lubicz notes the intriguing equivalence of 25 years to 309 lunar months. 309=(Ø -1 x 1000 and it’s choice as the number determining the cycle cannot have been accidental.                                                                           2

(A double cycle, which expresses the Golden Section, comprises 50 years; 618 = ( Ø – 1 x 1000.) 16                                                                                                                                                                                                                      2

As we have seen, the Jubilee cycle is central to the timing of Christ’s birth, and is conspicuous in the celestial events making up the great wonder of Revelation 12. Rosh ha-Shanah on Tishri 1, was the “head” of the Judean calendar as New Year’s day and Jesus’ birthday, the first day of the 50-year Hebrew cycle of Jubilees. This not only set the foundational temporal pattern of the seasons, holidays and feasts of Israel’s ancient Sabbath-Jubilee calendar, but it also mirrors the phi spiral of our solar system, that synchs the orbits of the planets around the Sun. Certainly, it is not a stretch to realize that the same phi ratio ordering the great spiral galaxies of the universe, and patterns the growth of myriad plant species, also patterns our solar system by the same harmony of geometric laws at a varied scale.

Nautilus Shells, Galaxies and Tornadoes, Oh Phi!

In the coordination of the Solar, Lunar and Sothic Calendar, via the phi ratio, not only do we find a symbol of God, the Creator-Father of Lights, underwriting His Creation via His geometric “source of life-principle,” but it also shows a linkage between the precessional and Sothic cycles. As the Creator, He enlivened all life forms, as the Prime Mover, and Giver of the vital life-growth element seen in all four kingdoms of life: plant, animal (and insect), human & spirit kingdoms. As the phi ratio applies to these four kingdoms of life, it operates according the Fibonacci Series, approximating higher degrees of accuracy, unto the Phi standard, witnessed in the successive growth stages of life. This is the reason for the ubiquity of the Fibonacci Series in a myriad of terrestrial life forms. Two of these kingdom’s of life are embodied in the union of the body of the lion king-Leo with the human head of the woman-Virgo, in the Great Sphinx. This section of the ecliptic,  forms the Alpha/Omega point on the band of constellations termed the Mazzaroth, that I’ve called the Celestial Sphinx. Below Figure 7, displays the view over the horizon from Jerusalem, showing Virgo’s Head under the fully risen Leo the Lion, very near the birth of Christ.

Figure 7. The Celestial Sphinx of Virgo and Leo on 9-14-3 BC, three days after Christ’s birth. 17

head of a woman and body of a lion

This is the section of the sky that Jon Nessle recently taught us about, which is the target that our Solar System as it spirals forward, led each day with the Sunrise of the daystar, the light of the world-Jesus Christ! Figure 8, below includes both the decans above and below the ecliptic in this part of the sky, showing the serpent Hydra being crushed by the Lion’s claws, with the brightest star on the ecliptic-Regulus between the Lion’s paws, meaning the feet that crush, as he tramples the dragon underfoot; [Ps. 91:13]. 18 Hydra-the abhorred, is the long fleeing serpent stretched from the signs Cancer to Libra, including Virgo and Leo, engulfing the length of 1/3 the ecliptic signs. Other decans pictured are Crater, holding the wine of God’s Wrath, [Rev. 14:10], inseparable from Hydra, and Corvus-the Raven one of the birds of prey who feast on the eternally defeated dead carcasses of the ungodly.

Figure 8. The Alpha/Omega section of the Mazzaroth. 19

As we have seen, the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau embodies the Star Al Nitak on Orion’s belt. In Figure 9 below, the Great Pyramid is linked to the Great Sphinx by the Causeway between them. As the 3 Giza Pyramid’s are a reflection of Orion’s Belt stars, so the Great Sphinx at Giza represents the Alpha and Omega union of signs on the ecliptic, with the head of the woman-Virgo united with the body of the Leo the Lion, depicting the start and finish of the celestial ecliptic. As the oldest and largest freestanding rock sculpture on the face of the earth, the Sphinx draws our attention to this critical heavenly juncture, joining the great circle of the firmament, the celestial Gospel.

Figure 9. The Great Pyramid linked to the Great Sphinx by the Giza Causeway. 

As this Giza Causeway extends from the ancient Plateau to the horizon on the winter solstice of 2012, it aligns with the rising point of Sirius, the Dog Star. When this Causeway line transitions to the firmament, it intersects the Great Orion Nebula between the stars Rigel and Al Nitak of Orion. As we mentioned earlier in this text the “established standard of astronomical navigation of finding the rising point of Sirius once Orion has risen at least 20 degrees, by extending the so-called Navigator’s Line of the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt to the horizon. In the graphic below, the Navigator’s line becomes the line of the Giza Causeway, linking the Great Pyramid to the Great Sphinx to the rising point of Sirius on the Horizon!

In a book by Edward Nightingale called “The Giza Template: The Leo-Orion Relationship,” he shows a phi relation of the Sphinx to the Pyramids at Giza, in effect a master plan for the Giza Plateau. The following is an excerpt from his book. 20

As the Sphinx views the sky oriented eastward through the year,  The year is divided into months, days, hours, minutes and seconds. Using these six divisions of time, a calendar date was assigned using a binary date to the alignment of the Galactic Center with the Sun and Earth. It is from this alignment that the Gregorian, Mayan and Hebrew calendar reconcile. This date is encoded at Giza by drawing a 12° degree angle between an 11° degree division of the square and an 11° degree division of the circle creating the multi-angled Causeway of the Great Pyramid. So, what do we see on the horizon at that moment from the viewpoint of the Sphinx?

Figure 10. The Great Sphinx aligned with the Sirius-Pleiades “Navigator’s line” through Orion’s Belt. 21

Using Stellarium software to view the sky on this binary date and time from the coordinates of the Sphinx, shows  without doubt, the reality and precision of this design. The star Sirius is on the horizon, The Great Orion Nebula, M42 in Orion’s Sword is 21° degrees above the horizon and directly above Sirius. A line drawn between Sirius and the Pleiades is 11° off vertical, and is pointing to this 11° angleIt is this view of Sirius on the horizon, the position of the Pleiades, and the relative position of the Great Orion Nebula that is being tracked and documented. The movements of the star Sirius and the Pleiades star cluster are at odds with the current theory of precession in that they do not exhibit the so-called wobble motion of the Earth’s axis. This implies that Sirius and the Pleiades are on a similar trajectory as our solar system. In fact, that is exactly what I have discovered encoded in The Giza Template. I propose that our solar system, the star Sirius and the Pleiades star cluster system were birthed from the same stellar nebula, that being the Great Orion Nebula, M42. These three systems are each on their own spiral trajectory, each being separated by time and distance directly related to the 25,920 year cycle of the Precession of the equinoxes. These star systems are moving away from the M42 Nebula in a spiral motion with our ecliptic rolling along like a wheel on a spiral path. This movement defines what we view as the precession of the equinoxes, eliminating the outdated wobbling earth theory. Spiral motion and growth are seen throughout the natural world and need not be dismissed in light of celestial mechanics that account for precession. [https://grahamhancock.com/nightingalee3/] Here the Phi ratio mechanics are implied ruling over the Precession of the Equinoxes, supplanting the “wobbling earth theory,” which seems to be supported by the math of the supposed error in the Pyramid’s alignment from the cardinal points.

Another interesting element to this graphic is seen with the 11° line from Sirius to the Pleiades also intersecting Orion’s belt @ Al Nitak– the “wounded one” in reference not only to the Great Pyramid star shaft alignment, but also Gen. 3:15, and the dual head and heel wounds of the serpent and Christ. With the Sword of Orion [M42 Orion’s Nebula] over the head of Sirius at its lower culmination on the horizon, this seems to beautifully depict the destruction of the enemy, while giving added meaning to Job’s Pleiades references, that always include Orion’s Belt. This also fits with the “Scored lines” alignment of the Pleiades in the Pyramid’s Descending Passage intersecting Thuban’s trajectory into the pit, and the precessional shift, and the movement of the archaic pole star towards Polaris, of Ursa Minor. It seems the Almighty had great purposes in mind with Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy of the Giza Plateau, in conveying primary Biblical themes regarding the birth and return of His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ! We remain ever thankful for His Love and Grace, and the riveting evidence He has left for us, with eyes to see and ears to hear

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and God Bless!

Comments Off on Orion, the Pleaides, the Great Pyramid and Precession, Pt. 2

Birth of Jesus Christ

Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ

This is the first Blog post since Rev. Jon Nessle taught us about the record of Peter’s sermon on the Day of Pentecost in 28 AD. His teaching on the Figure of SpeechMerismos was a key revelation to us all, and a milestone to me especially with Peter’s reference to the Prophet Joel in Acts 2:17-21. Jon Nessle taught us that in v. 20 where; “The sun shall be turned into darkness and the Moon into blood before the great and notable day of the Lord come,” first refers to solar and lunar eclipses that don’t take place together as the Science confirms, therefore as this does not refer to literal truth, it must be figurative. As solar and lunar eclipses depict the Moon on opposite sides of the earth, it represents a “juxtaposition of 2 extremes,” which in Figures of Speech is called a Merism. This figure illustrates a combination of two contrasting words or subjects that refer to an entirety. Since this Merismos in Acts 2:20 is celestial in nature, the entirety referred to is different kinds Celestial signs, not only Solar and Lunar eclipses, that take place before the Lord’s Return. Since Peter’s Pentecost Sermon in Acts 2 took place on the opening day of the Age of Grace, the entirety of Celesial Signs could potentially include all these signs during the Age of Grace. Thus we are very thankful that the Heavenly Father gave us both a general and specific pattern of various celestial signs that not only marked the birth of Christ, but also mark his Return, based on similar celestial patterns in each case. This is the basic premise of the Celestial Prelude, which are the preliminary celestial signs that allowed the Magi to recognize the actual signs the marked the birth of Christ, of the 1st Celestial Prelude.

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. As this was the case with the first coming of Christ, so it is with his imminent Return. In light of the merismos figure of speech in Acts 2, which specifically references solar and lunar eclipses referring to all types of celestial signs, 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, in the first Celestial Prelude, provides the keys to our recognition of The Celestial Encore of Christ’s 2nd Coming. We find this Scriptural record in Revelation 12.

Rev. 12:1-2 “Now a great sign [semion] appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the Sun with the Moon under her feet, and on her head a Crown 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.

The last and key element of Rev. 12:1 is “on her head a Crown of 12 stars.” As Virgo and Leo are the Alpha and Omega signs of the Mazzaroth, we find a primary version of the 1st Merismos in Acts 2:19a of “wonders in heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath.” Since the earthly wonder of the Great Sphinxas the oldest monumental sculpture on the face of the earth, is noteworthy as a composite symbol of the head of the woman Virgo who is crowned [G4735-stephanos] with the other 11 signs or constellations of the zodiac, even as the 11 stars bowed to Joseph [Gen. 37:9], ending in the Body of the Lion-Leo. This provides what I’ve referred to as the “Celestial Sphinx,” a term which now has found a home as the heavenly version of the juxtaposition of 2 extremes encapsulating the entirety of the celestial signs on the ecliptic. It is key to realize that the signs of Rev. 12:1 are summarized in context of signs in Virgo and Leo, which describes a sign of the Celestial Sphinx. One function of this dual Merismos in Acts 2:19-20, is that of all the potential celestial signs in the Age of Grace, how do we differentiate the celestial signs marked by God’s Hand for a sacred purpose from those that are not? At least part of the answer is found in celestial signs marked as they occur in Virgo and Leo. We will find examples of this as we proceed.

God also marked the coronation of His only begotten Son in the heavens with a triple conjunction of the King planet Jupiter with the King star Regulus in Leo during 3-2 BC, based on Jupiter’s retrograde motion. Thus, his birth on the key day of Tishri 1 in Hebrew timekeeping was foreordained by God, to fit the pattern of 7 primary Hebrew Feast and holy days of their sacred calendar, since before the foundations of the world. This key date on Israel’s calendar perfectly synchronizes to mark Jesus’ birthday on Hebrew New Years Day, Tishri 1.

To help us grasp the critical importance of the holy day of Tishri 1, the 7th month, we turn to the following reference from Alfred Edersheim:

“Just as age was reckoned from Tishri 1 to Tishri 1, so were the regnal years of Judean Kings. The blowing of trumpets of Rams Horns was also part of the coronation ceremony of these Judean Kings.” 2

Thus the start of Jesusreign as King of Kings is marked on his birthday of Tishri 1, the “Day of Trumpets.” The significance of the King’s Coronation tied to Rosh Hashannah, New Years Day and the head of Israel’s calendar, is that Jesus as the King of Kings presides over all temporal, civil and sacred matters as King-High Priest of Israel. Thus it is fitting that a majority of Blood Moons would occur near this area in Virgo, symbolizing Israel, near its brightest star Spica-Al Zemach, marking the only begotten Son and offspring of God the Father. We can see the wisdom in understanding the dual significance of this Revelation 12 prophecy, as it not only applies to Jesusfirst appearance with his birth and sufferings, but also his victorious return in Glory. Almighty God has mirrored the heavenly signs marking the birth of Jesus Christ, 2000 years later in the light various types of celestial signs and the lunar glow of the Blood Moon Tetrads with Israel’s re-birth and gathering as a nation, to set the stage for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

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 Rev. 12:1, 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 or constellation on the mazzaroth depicted as a singular womanVirgo the virgin. Virgo is clothed with the Sun for 20 days every year- one of the 12 keys of the “Celestial Preludelisted below. However, the Moon only appears at the feet of Virgo 1 day each year while she is clothed with the Sun. This was September 11th in 3 BC marking the birth of Christ, [Rev. 12:1-2].

Figure 2. Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction in Pisces, May 29th, 7 BC.3

The Specific signs setting the pattern of the birth of Christ, starting in the first Jupiter-Saturn union of 7 BC, set forth key signposts that the Magi were on the lookout for 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 this study was first posted almost 20 years ago on our Try-God.com website, I termed it the “Celestial Prelude.” The fact that the heavenly signs of this dress rehearsal unfolded over a two-year period 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 posted in a “Summary of the Celestial Prelude,” which serves as a good starting point for review, in light of the most recent context of Jon Nessle’s teaching on the Merismos in Acts 2, along with key points that allowed the Magi to recognize the signs marking Christ’s birth. This was provided within the framework of the truths of the celestial gospel that were first unveiled to Biblical Patriarchs, and later corrupted in astrology forming a basis of mythology the world over. The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction cycle has a long and distinguished Biblical history marking the births of both Abraham and Moses, and it’s only fitting that it would play a key role in marking Christ’s birth.

The Prophet Daniel taught the original Magi and other astronomers of the king Nebuchadnezzar’s court [Dan. 5:11] about these planetary unions from the contemporary example of a Jupiter-Saturn triple union 523-522 BC in Virgo. Less than 400 years later, in 132 BC a new star or supernova exploded in a decan of Virgo called Coma, [Fig. 3].

Figure 3. The decan Of Coma from the Dendera Zodiac. 4

Image result for decan corona

Pictured as seen in the Dendera zodiac above, in the head of the child held in his mother’s arms, the new star, or supernova burst onto the scene drawing attention to the sign Coma, meaning “The Desired of all Nations” [Hagg. 2:7]. This supernova burned brightly for about 275 years as a beacon lighting the way to the general time wherein the birth of Christ would occur. This truth disclosed that as The Desire of all Nations, Jesus Christ was coming for the redemption of all mankind, not just Israel.

The Coma supernova also set the stage for the next triple union of Jupiter-Saturn in 7 BC that lead to the birth of Christ. This Conjunction took place in Pisces, marking a transition in the ages of the precession of the equinoxes, from the Age of Aries to the Age of Pisces. This new Precessional Age was marked because in the prior 2160 years, Aries was the sign wherein the Sunrise occurred on the Spring equinox. The Triple Conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in 7BC marked the first time the Sun arose in the Sign of Pisces, on the Spring equinox, marking the new Precessional Age of Pisces. In Fig. 4 we find the king planet Jupiter in retrograde motion in Pisces in 7 BC, forming its triple union with Saturn, with a dual function of not only highlighting the new Age of Pisces, but also pointing to the signs  marking the long-awaited appearance of the only begotten Son of God, who would bring salvation to all mankind.

Over 2000 years has already passed since this opening of the Piscean Age, with the Birth of Christ taking place 4 years after its opening. This Sign of Pisces is marked by two fish, one swimming vertically towards the North Pole and the other horizontally along the ecliptic. The fish represent the houses of Israel and Judah, further imparting the Promised Seed would come from the Royal House of Judah. Christ had to be the Son of Adam, Abraham and David to fulfill all righteousness. The fullness of the gap between the sufferings of the Lord, seen during his first Advent, and his glorious return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, continues to take place in the spiritual Administration of Grace and the Precessional Piscean Age.

During the time of the rise of ancient Israel, in last millennium BC, there were 43 “normal” conjunctions between these two planets, with at least 7 Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunctions taking place, with varying intervals from 40 years (as from 861 to 821 BC and again between 563 to 523) to 377 years (as between 523 to 146 BC). The events following the 7 BC triple union of Jupiter-Saturn are shown in the chart below [Fig. 4], in 5-BC, as specific key celestial events that lead to the Magi’s recognition of the birth of Christ, in 3-2 BC.

Figure. 4 The Celestial Prelude-Specific Signs of 7 BC to 5 BC

Date Conjunction of Planets Constellation
May 27th, 7 BC Jupiter-Saturn Pisces
Sept. 15th, 7 BC Jupiter, Saturn; [ring cycle], Sun & Earth aligned Pisces
Oct. 5th, 7 BC Jupiter-Saturn Pisces
Dec. 1st , 7 BC Jupiter-Saturn Pisces

April 15-20, 6 BC Lunar Occultations  Series
Mar. 23rd, 5 BC Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse/Nova  Virgo
Sept. 15th, 5 BC Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse Pisces

As this chart reflects after the Jupiter-Saturn triple union of 7BC came a triangular massing of Jupiter-Saturn and Mars, also one of the traits listed below on the heels of this Feb. 25th, 6 BC Conjunction including Mars, in the next month came a remarkable series of lunar occultations, followed by two total lunar eclipses in 5 BC.

In the Summary of the Celestial Prelude, the 12 key elements below recognized by the Magi including the Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunction of 7 BC, are listed that had a direct application in helping them understand the heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ in 3-2 BC. The triple conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in 7-6 BC that the Magi were best acquainted with, is covered in my article on The Specific Signs @ [www.try-god.com]. Doctor Earnest Martin agrees as he states in his writings: “The year 3/2BC was certainly an extraordinary one for visible astronomical exhibitions, as there was no year similar to it for many years on either side (a foretaste had occurred back in 7 BC, as Jupiter and Saturn had come into union on 3 occasions: May 26, October 3, and December 1, and this was followed in early 6 BC with a close triangulation with Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. This occurred as the planets were in Pisces.”5 [emphasis mine]

As the Magi were able to identify the Star of Bethlehem based on these 12 traits of the Celestial Prelude following the triple conjunction of Jupiter-Saturn in 7 BC, and key Lunar activity so we can see links to the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad leading to the repeat of the Rev. 12 sign on Sept. 23rd 2017. These twelve stellar pointers provided by 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. These details of the Celestial Prelude are unique to the Try-God.com and blog sites since we have detailed this account of the celestial markings of the birth of Christ, it is fitting that we should reconstruct the specifics of the Solar and Lunar eclipse Tetrads that accompanied the Jupiter-Saturn triple union of 7-6BC, leading to the birth of Christ, in light of the various types of signs including the modern Blood Moon Tetrads for end-times insight. This will follow in a separate blog study next month.

By methodically researching the following traits of the Celestial Prelude I was able to grasp, and work through the celestial observations of the Magi and how they decoded the heavenly signs the Heavenly Father had left for them. They left a trail that leads directly to the signs marking birth of Christ on Sept. 11th, 3 BC. The characteristics of the Celestial Prelude are listed below:

32831844

The Characteristics of the Celestial Prelude

  •  Jupiter was clearly marked as “his star.” [Matt. 2:2]
    Jupiter was involved in a triple planetary Conjunction in 7 BC.
    This Jupiter-Saturn triple conjunction occurred with two Tetrads of Solar & Lunar Eclipses in 7-6 BC.
    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 a Total lunar eclipse.
  • 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.” [Rev. 12:1-2]
  • The second 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 and the moon at her feet.” [Rev. 12:1-2]
  • The September 15th Heliacal Rising of Jupiter and Saturn foreshadowed the Heliacal Setting of Spica, located between the setting Sun and Moon in Virgo, identifying a 30-minute period when the birth of Christ happened.

These stellar pointers provided by the Hand of the Heavenly Father left no doubt for the Magi of the birth of the only begotten Son of God.  These solar and lunar eclipses and signs of the Celestial Sphinx leading to the birth of Christ, shown conclusively with the planetary conjunctions, Meteor showers, and Solar-Lunar Tetrads of 7-6BC, in light of the Blood Moon Tetrads and other types of celestial signs leading into and beyond, the 9-23-17 Rev. 12 sign for key insight into Christ’s Return.

Starting on the 1st trait of the Characteristics of the Celestial Prelude list, the Star of Bethlehem [Jupiter] the King Planet that the Magi followed to Jerusalem and the birth of Christ, it is Jupiter again that is birthed from Virgo’s Womb on Sept. 9th 2017, after spending 42 weeks-the normal time of human gestation in her womb due to Jupiter’s retrograde motion. This speaks to the 2nd and 4th traits that Jupiter’s Retrograde motion would be a key as it was for the Magi in identifying the triple planetary union of Jupiter-Regulus beginning 3 days after the birth of Christ-the 2nd trait of the Celestial Prelude. We find a key to the 2nd Celestial Prelude in Rev. 12 with a repetition of other elements of these signs discussed below.

The third trait refers to Jupiter’s involvement in a series of Planetary Conjunctions. We find this manifested at the birth of Christ in a dazzling Jupiter-Venus conjunction in Leo on June 17th of 2 BC. It was two Jupiter-Venus conjunctions that actually bracketed the great majority of heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ in 3-1 BC. The 1st Jupiter-Venus Conjunction marking the birth of Christ took place on August 31st 3 BC, in Leo with the last one occurring on August 21st 1 BC, in Virgo. Here we find an interesting variation on a Celestial Sphinx sign highlighting planetary conjunctions of Jupiter-Venus, that took place during the first fulfillment the Rev. 12:1-2 prophecy relating to the sufferings of Christ in his ministry as the Passover Lamb. This alerts us that we should look for similar Celestial Sphinx signs in Virgo and Leo as a precursor to the Lord’s Second Coming. The fact that there were also two Venus-Mars conjunctions framing the central Jupiter-Venus union between March 31st, and Dec. 9th, 2 BC, marking the birth of Christ, sets a precedent that we find in like fashion leading to the Lord’s glorious Return. This refers to the sixth trait of the Celestial Prelude. In this light, the 1st Jupiter-Venus union occurred in August 2014 during the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, and it is with great interest that we noted two Venus-Mars unions in 2015, preceding 3 Jupiter-Venus unions in Leo, followed by Jupiter-Venus unions in Virgo in both 2015-16 & 2017. The initial Triple conjunction of Jupiter-Venus starting on July 1st, 2015 was all over the newscasts, and current events, being compared to the brilliant June 17th Jupiter-Venus planetary conjunction in 2 BC, 9 months after the birth of Christ. This indicates the key role of Solar and Lunar eclipses related not only to the birth signs of Christ, but also to his victorious Return.

June 30th, 2015
August 25th, 2015
October 26-27th, 2015 

The following dates saw Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in Virgo in 2016-and Nov. 2017: 

Aug. 27th 2016
Feb. 26th, 2017
Nov. 13th, 2017

As we discuss the 2nd heavenly sign in Rev. 12 below regarding the Eta Draconid Meteor Showers, we will find unique Pi and Phi ratio relationships in these Jupiter-Venus unions, that took place during and after the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad, also conforming to the Celestial Sphinx pattern of signs designed by the Hand of the Almighty to mark key signs with this special indicator related to the dual figure of Speech Merismos in Acts 2:19-20.

The Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015 as part of the signs of the 2nd Celestial Prelude concerning the Lord’s Return, was foreshadowed by lunar eclipses leading to the birth of Christ, which we find in the 7th trait of the 1st Celestial Prelude. The Jupiter-Saturn triple Conjunctions in 7 BC, highlighted by a planetary alignment on Sept. 15th BC, initiated a pattern of heavenly signs that reappeared in September of 5 BC with a pair of eclipses. This embodies the 10th trait of the Celestial PreludeOn 9-1-5 BC there was a partial Solar eclipse, with a Total Lunar eclipse following 14 days later on 9-15-5 BC. These heavenly signs exactly 2 years apart, enlightened 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– the 8th trait of the Celestial Prelude. Since September marked Hebrew New Year’s Holy day, of Rosh Hashanah starting the seventh month of Tishri, on September 11th, 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 11th trait of the Celestial Prelude, the lunar activity in 5 BC tipped off the Magi to be watchful of lunar activity during this time, two years later inBC. This framed the 42-minute period between Sunset and Moon-set 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 3-2 BC, three days after the birth of Christ, 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. This was a key aspect of the Creator’s means to show the triple crowning of His Promised Seed in the heavens, but it was also a Celestial Sphinx sign, marking the birth of Christ in both Virgo and Leo. [Gen. 49:9-10]

Another principle guiding our study of the birth and return of Christ concerns the dual fulfillment of the signs seen in Rev. 12. We find this first in the dual significance of the “woman” of Rev. 12. In verses 1-2 the woman refers to Mary who bore Jesus Christ, as she is symbolized in the constellation Virgo, the only sign of a woman on the ecliptic. It is noteworthy that the woman is embodied both in her human and celestial versions as Mary and Virgo in this biblical record, qualifying as both earthly and heavenly signs that are delineated in the first rendition of the dual Merismos in Acts 2:19 that mark the coming Christ. As the Rev. 12 record proceeds, the representation of this woman changes. Rev. 12:6 tells us this woman fled into the wilderness for 1260 days, which does not match with the period Joseph and Mary fled Israel with Jesus into Egypt, so it no longer refers to Mary, but Israel. Since the generation of Israel at the time of Christ- rejected him, their rewards are held in abeyance, which opened the door for the Gentiles to be grafted into the olive tree of Romans 10-11. Now Christ is preparing to return to a reformed Israel of Prophecy, that we have seen coming to pass in the last 70 years. This has also been documented in the Celestial Gospel, in signs we have been recently researching and discussing, as they are apparent, for example in Figure 6 below.

From the first prophecy of the Promised Seed [Gen. 3:15] the woman’s seed was declared as the one to bruise the serpent with a terminal death blow to its head. Rev. 12:4 below reveals the central goal of the adversary, “to devour the woman’s child as soon as it was born.” All of Biblical history revolves around this conflict between the two seeds; the seed of the woman vs. the serpent’s seed. Just as the “woman” has a dual fulfillment, so the symbolism in reference to the serpentdragon in Rev. 12 changes also.

Revelation 12: 3-5
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven”- “Another” is a Greek word indicating that this heavenly wonder was different from that described in Rev. 12:1. Even as the first heavenly wonder involved the woman of the Constellation Virgo, so this 2nd heavenly wonder, although different from Virgo, was still a Constellation.

and behold a great red dragon“- Although there are several celestial candidates for this sky dragon, including Hydra which also spans a third of the stars of the ecliptic with its massive size, it becomes apparent that Draco is the sign that is referred to in its initial significance in Revelation. This is the first of 13 occurrences of the Greek word “drakon in the book of Revelation, with the first eight uses of this word here in Rev. 12, [Rev. 12:3, 4, 7, 7, 9, 13, 16, 17, Rev. 13:2, 4, 11, Rev.16:13, 20:2]. The number 13 is symbolic of rebellion and the dragon embodies the idea of spiritual warfare in the heavens. As we inspect the details of the Biblical record of Revelation 12, the traits of Draco the dragon come to the surface. The first incidence of the word “Dragon” in Rev. 12:3 are focused traits of Draco over the other names of the adversary in Rev. 12:9. As a result of the war in heaven, the dragon and his 1/3 of the heavenly angels were cast down to the earth. This was depicted celestially as a meteor shower in 3 BC, surrounding the birthday of Jesus Christ. So as the Great Sphinx and the WomanMary and Virgo have both heavenly and earthly renditions, so too does the Dragon who formerly ruled the angels in heaven, but is now cast down to the earth. The celestial figure that embodies the casting down of the dragon, is a type of celestial sign called a Meteor shower.

In the dragon’s tail there is a star called Eta- Draconis, which was the radiant or source point for the Draconid Meteor Showers that appear to emanate from this star in Draco’s tail, which took place from Sept. 9th-12th in 3BC. This of course includes the birth date of Christ on Sept. 11th, showing the dragon’s falldragging down the Angel’s he deceived in his tail, matching with the appearance of Jesus Christ the Son of God. This highlights one of 3 different Meteor showers emanating from Draco, two of which have their radiant in Eta-Draconis, with the third star being Grumian or Grumian, meaning “subtle or deceiver.” Of the two Draconid Meteor Showers radiating from Eta- Draconis, one is viewed as the greater and the other the lesser, and it was the lesser that fell during the birth of Christ from Sept. 9-12 BC.6 What is unique about this is that the lesser of the Eta-Draconids, are best viewed at sunset or the early evening, while most Meteor showers are best seen later at night. This matches the time between the setting Sun and Moon, Sept. 11th, 3BC, when the birth of Christ took place, just as the thin crescent of the New Moon was becoming visible that evening.

Figure 5.

In an excerpt below from the October 2nd, 98’ Weekly News Bulletin of Sky & Telescope;

On the evening of Oct. 8th, debris from the Periodic Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner may provide a stunning sky show. The Giacobinid Meteor shower produced two of the greatest  Meteor displays seen in the 20th century in 1933 and 1946. Lesser showers arrived in 1926, 1952, and 1985.”7

The graphic above from [Watchfortheday.org] shows a temporal Phi relationship between the Periodic Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner of 1900 and the 2020 Draconid meteor shower, with the 1946 Draconids between them. This depicts the impact of the Comet Giacobini-Zinner, with its resulting Meteor Showers over the 20th century and the first 20 years of the 21st.8 Biblically, 120 years [40 x 3] is a key time period in the lives of Men of God like Moses for example whose life span breaks down into 3, 40-year periods like this.

Thus, the birth of Christ is an excellent example of the multiple types of Celestial signs utilized to mark Christ’s Birth. We find the setting Sun and New Moon in Virgo with its brightest star Spica setting between the Sun and Moon, during an optimum viewing time for a specific Meteor Shower on Tishri 1, New Years Day a key day on the Hebrew CalendarGod provided multi-layers of evidence regarding these different types of celestial signs and their significance in relation to each other in Hebrew culture for us to realize the many ways God communicates with us using these media. It was Marshall MacCluhan that said “The media is the Message,” but I don’t think he had the Gospel in the Stars in mind when he turned that phrase. The message however remains the same centered around the sufferings and glory of the Lord, and how the Gospel in the Stars gets the message across in the different ages and spiritual administrations, that the Almighty has designed to organize his temporal order. Another category utilized by the Almighty to carry His truth is Mathematics and Sacred Geometry, which we find in the next graphic examples.

The following 5 Graphics, all from [watchfortheday.org],9 the first of which depicts a dual Pi relation between the 1st Blood Moon of the 2014-2015 Tetrad on 4-15-14, and Adar 9-on 3-16-2019/the 70-year anniversary of Israeli Independence, marked by another Blood Moon Tetrad in 1949-50with the Great Pan American Total Solar Eclipse on 8-21-17, between them. This Pan American Total Solar Eclipse is one of 4 Solar Eclipses bracketing the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. A 2nd Pi relation is drawn in this graphic also between the 10-7-2020 Draconid Meteor Shower and the 4-15-2014 opening Blood Moon of this Tetrad.

Figure 6.

The next Graphic from [watchfortheday.org]10, depicts a Pi relation between the 1st JupiterVenus conjunction during the most recent Blood Moon Tetrad on August 18th, 2014, and the Draconid Meteor shower on 10-7-2020, with Nisan 10 celebrating the 70-year anniversary of Israeli Independence in 2019, between them. This initial Jupiter-Venus union took place after the 1st Blood Moon in the 2014-2015 Tetrad had occurred on 4-15-2014.

Figure 7.

The next graphic from [watchfortheday.org] shows another Pi relation between the 2nd Jupiter-Venus union during the 2014-2015 Blood Moon Tetrad on 7-1-2015, which was extensively compared to the Bethlehem Star Jupiter-Venus union on June 17th, 2 BC, and the Draconid Meteor Showers of both 10-7-2016 and 10-7-2020. This union of the King planet-Jupiter, with the bright and Morning Star-Venus, shows a juxtaposition of the fallen Morning Star-Lucifer being cast down to the earth, as opposed to the ascendant Morning Star-Venus embodies the risen and ascended Christ.

Figure 8.

The next graphic shows a dual Phi relation between the 3rd Jupiter-Venus union bracketing the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, on Oct. 25-26, 2015 with a union of Jupiter-Saturn, the closest Great Conjunction since 1623, on the Winter Solstice, 12-21-20. The first Phi relation is found with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Sagittarius on the Winter Solstice, while Jupiter is leaving Virgo’s Womb on October 13th, 2017, when an image of a fetus in the womb appears in the Sun, New Year’s day, 1-1-2019, between these two Jupiter Signs. This seems another form of juxtaposition as the first appearance of the Messiah seen in the solar womb marked by a Jupiter-Venus union like the one in 2 BC-the birth of the King, is set against the victorious conquering hero of the ages riding high as Sagittarius, in the birth pangs of his kingdom reign.

Figure 9.

The next graphic shows a Phi spiral relation between the Jupiter-Venus union after the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, on Aug27, 2016. This Jupiter-Venus union, shown in relation to the 10-7-2020, Draconid Meteor Shower, on 10-7-2020, with Jupiter leaving Virgo’s womb on 10-13-17, between them.

Figure 10.

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 the dual significance of Revelation 12:1-5. 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 have seen prior to the time of writing this study, in 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 above, give us the basis of this research. 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 new, yet related version of heavenly signs grounded in the sacred pedigree of the Celestial Gospel, marking the triumphant return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as he crushes all the resistance of evil darkness.

We live in exciting times that require the vigil of a Watchman on the wall, and I’m proud to stand with my fellow believers in the body of Christ, shoulder to shoulder in our unbreakable unity in Christ, as our days of victory approach over the horizon.

God Bless!
