The Great Pyramid-the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land Part I.


The Great Pyramid-the Boundary Stone of the Promised Land  Part I.

This blog post relates to the alignment of Regulus-Jupiter-Mercury on August 6th 2015. It has been proposed by others that this celestial alignment will approximate the angle of the Great Pyramid complex in Egypt on Aug 6, 2015. As only one of numerous key celestial occurrences in summer 2015, this deserves more scrutiny so we can understand this proposal. Since we are seeing celestial signs related to the Great Pyramid in the current context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, it makes sense that we should also be aware of potential signs related to the Great Pyramid at the birth of Christ. To begin to comprehend this topic, we must first know what angle related to the Great Pyramid is being referenced. During our dialogue, we are introducing another concept that has gotten very little, if any attention thus far related to this topic; that of a Biblical Boundary Stone. Let’s begin with the Great Pyramid to uncover the angle in question.

The Bethlehem Line and the Great Pyramid.

Figure A.

The “Bethlehem Line” from the Great Pyramid

A primary key to our understanding of the relationship between the significance of the Great Pyramid and the birth, life and ministry of Jesus Christ is the Pyramid’s so called “Bethlehem Line.” This is the geographical application of the designed angle of descent and ascent of its {the Pyramid’s main} sloping passages, which is 26 degrees 18’ 9.7”—an angle significant for having once been the exact elevation of Thuban-the Pole Star from the latitude of the Pyramid. In fact during the third millennium BC, the then Pole Star, Alpha Draconis, actually shone directly down the Descending Passage at its lower culmination—and this was the millennium that apparently saw the construction of the Pyramid itself. This angle then—and thus, perhaps, the passage which forms it also—clearly has both an astronomical and chronological significance…If that same angle is laid off from the Pyramid’s east-west axis in a north-easterly direction, the rhumb-line so produced marks the bearing of the summer sunrise from the latitude of the Pyramid. [see Fig. A] Moreover it has long been known that the same line marks off several oddly significant geographical sites, and in particular, passes directly through the Jewish town of Bethlehem.[1] The Great Pyramid Decoded Peter Lemesurier, ppg. 19-21.  {emphasis mine}

Figure B. [2]

Bethlehem Line and Mt. Sinai Line from the Great Pyramid

This so-called Bethlehem line not only intersected Bethlehem at Christ’s birth, but also intersects the point where Moses crossed the Red Sea with the nation of Israel during the Exodus, the point where the River Jordan was parted when Israel was led into the Promised land by Joshua, and Jerusalem/Mt. Zion, only 5 miles north of Bethlehem. Thus the “Bethlehem line” seems to summarize in geographical terms, Israel’s story of deliverance and redemption from Moses out of Egypt, to Joshua in the Promised Land including the birth of Christ in Bethlehem. One possible correlation to the angle of the Planetary alignment is that the angle correlates to the Giza angle toward Mt. Zion in Jerusalem, Israel. When this same angle is laid off from the Pyramid’s apex in a south-easterly direction, the line produced marks what is thought to be the location of Mt. Sinai in Arabia, [Fig. B]. The real Mt. Sinai is not in the Sinai Peninsula but is in Saudi Arabia as God’s Word says in Galatians 4:25 – “For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia;” [see Figure B]. Thus it seems possible that the Great Pyramid was a sacred altar and  ‘mountain’ relating to Mt. Zion and Mt. Sinai, as a boundary stone. It is important to see what the Bible tells us about boundary stones. We find Biblical evidence of these land boundaries in God’s Covenant with Abraham in Genesis.

Genesis 15:18-21 18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates 19 the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

Genesis 17:4-8 “As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

Here we see the boundaries of the Promised Land extending from the River of Egypt-the Nile, to the rivers of the Fertile Crescent-the Euphrates, as an Everlasting Covenant. If we follow the extension of the Bethlehem line into the fertile crescent, it crosses The Euphrates river also.

Deut. 19:14 14 “You shall not remove your neighbor’s landmark, which the men of old have set, in your inheritance which you will inherit in the land that the Lord your God is giving you to possess. [Prov. 22:28, 23:10]

These property lines were marked by a heap of stones called stones of the boundary, and certainly there is no more impressive “heap or mountain of stones” on the face of the earth than The Great Pyramid! How appropriate that God could use the Greatest surviving Wonder of the ancient world, as a marker for His Covenant pertaining to the Promised Land.

Hosea 5:9-10 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke; Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure. 10 The princes of Judah are like those who remove a landmark; I will pour out My wrath on them like water.

The Hebrew word forLandmark here is [H1366-gebul] meaning boundary, the same as Deut 19:14 above. God had commanded the Israelite’s to keep themselves from the idols of the heathens that inhabited the Promised Land, but they did not. Thus these boundaries not only refer to physical, but also spiritual separations. God’s boundaries not only framed the real estate but also the lifestyles of Israel. Boundary Stones on Earth were known to have been sighted and marked from celestial coordinates for accuracy. This was the case in the building of the Great Pyramid in a ceremony known as “stretching the cord,” [Job 38:4-6] yielding the most accurately oriented physical structure on the planet aligned to the four points of the compass, [Fig. C]. Thus the Pyramid provides the anchor to delineate the borders of the “Promised Land,” marked in accordance with God’s Promises to Abraham in Genesis, the Star of Bethlehem, linked with the Promised Seed, from the tribe of Judah, and King David’s genealogy through the Christ line.

Figure C.

Egyptian “Stretching the Cord” Ceremony

A key
to the triple Alignment with Regulus of Jupiter and Mercury on Aug 6, 2015 is that the 3 celestial bodies approximate the Giza complex angle of the Pyramids. As we consider these aspects of the Great Pyramid as the Boundary Stone of the Ages, we find 3 immediate dimensions where this applies. The first considered next, is the Boundary Stone of the Egyptian Delta, [Fig. E]. Ancient Egypt consisted of two kingdoms with the Great Pyramid at the apex of the Nile delta, separating one kingdom from the other, upstream of the delta in Southern Egypt. Second, the Pyramid dimensions encompass all of Egypt as we have just explained above, as seen in Figure F. Thirdly, The Great Pyramid is the Boundary Stone for the Promised Land of IsraelThe Giza Pyramid complex has also been shown to be linked to Mt. Zion, in Jerusalem; [see Part 2 of this Blog post]. This study suggests [see Figure B.] that such an angle also determines the real location of  Mt. Sinai as all 3 sites have ‘Altars’ linked with them in God’s Word. Starting with the Great Pyramid, it is called an “altar” in Isa. 19.

Figure D.

Descending and Ascending Passages inside the Great Pyramid

Isa. 19:18-20
In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt, speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Lord of hosts; one shall be called the city of destruction. [19] In that day there shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. [20] And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and He shall send them, a savior and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

altar to the Lord”- H4196 {mizbeach} an altar as a place of sacrifice. The same word is used for both the brazen altar in the outer-court of the Tabernacle; {Ex. 39:38-39}, and the golden altar of incense in the holy place; {Ex. 30: 1-6, 27} which together, figuratively represent the bi-polar floor-plan of the Tabernacle-Temple corresponding to the system of Patriarchal Astronomy, as the polar centers the double square layout of the Tabernacle. This shows the direct geometrical relationship between the ground-plan of the Tabernacle, the Temple, and the Great Pyramid. First the double square blueprint of the Tabernacle consists of two equal squares; [1 x 2 rectangle] combining static and dynamic features as the capstone does} containing the phi proportion, even as the rectangular floor in the King’s chamber of the Great Pyramid. The Pyramid’s Descending Passage alignment on Thuban the archaic pole star in Draco, [Figure C.] depicts the precession of the poles, and the transition of the morning stars from Lucifer to Jesus Christ, encapsulating a spiritual history, from the rise and fall of Lucifer to the ascendancy of the Promised Seed. As the perfect sacrifice, Jesus took the sins of the world on himself for the redemption of humanity. This shows us how the Pyramid symbolizes a sacrificial altar, with the missing Chief Corner-stone representing, not only of the sacrifice of the lamb of God laying down his life for all Mankind, but also as the High Priest offering this singular sacrifice after the order of Melchizedek. [Isa. 28:16-17, 2Pet. 2:5-9]

midst of the land of Egypt”- [H8432tavek] It’s root means to sever or bisect. By implication it refers to the center, so called from its being divided. Gen. 1:6 uses this word in reference to the firmament in the midst of the waters, in the same sense that the Pyramid bisects the Delta of Egyptian Nile river. This shows us a direct Biblical correlation between the terrestrial application of the science of the Great Pyramid, and its celestial applications in the firmament, with the earth as the figurative center of both.

border”- [H1366-gebul] a twisted cord, boundary, enclosed territory, landmark, limit, quarter, space. In Ex. 10:14,19 the word refers specifically to the “coasts of Egypt.” Ezekiel 29:10 uses this word referring to thetower of Syene” which was a very important landmark for the boundaries of Egypt. Ps. 74:17 uses it referring to the “borders of the earth, which the Pyramid also figuratively and mathematically represents. {Gen. 8:22, Jer. 49:36}

With the Great Pyramid, Isaiah 19 describes an ‘altar’ where the Pyramid sits at both the center and border of Egypt. The possible correlation with other altars in Israel’s history broaches some interesting possibilities concerning the borders of the Promised land. On Mt. Sinai and Mt. Zion, the Bible describes instances where Abraham and Moses also built an altar unto the LORD. Perhaps an Altar linked with Mt. Zion could relate more with the Altar of a coming 3rd Temple in Jerusalem that may be initiated, or in operation. This Altar may be the final puzzle piece for the Daily Sacrifices to begin in a much anticipated third Jerusalem Temple.

Isa. 19:19 refers to the entire land of Egypt with specific regard to its Biblically recognized borders, and thus coincides with the pillar at the border thereof to the Lord,” referred to in this verse. What is interesting about these borders is that the only means available to ancient astronomers of obtaining accurate latitude and longitude coordinates was by way of astronomical sightings. Professor Stecchini {who holds a Harvard Doctorate in classical measurement} has conclusively shown that early astronomers from the third millennium B.C. could measure latitude to within a few hundred feet and do almost as well with longitude-a feat which was not repeated until the eighteenth century of our era… the ancients knew the length of the circumference of the earth very precisely, the length of their country almost to the cubit, and the geographical coordinates of all the main points in their realm from the equator to the Mediterranean…the sophistication of the ancients is demonstrated by the fact that they placed their observatory near Syene on the island of Elephantine, 15’- or half the diameter of the sunnorth of the actual tropic because they understood that it was not the center of the sun, but its outer rim which has to be observed…On the island of Elephantine was the famous well, whose bottom was said to be completely illumined once a year when the sun stood directly overhead at the solstice…By establishing the moment of the solstice at the tropic {of Cancer} the ancient astronomers were able to correctly compute the circumference of the earth by the use of deep wells and obelisks. [6] Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Peter Thompkins, p. 211.

Figure E.

The Great Pyramid Bisects the Boundaries of the Nile Delta

One of the first groups in more modern times to scientifically study the Pyramid was Napoleon Bonaparte’s surveyors; “who found that the Pyramid was accurately oriented to the four cardinal points of the compass and therefore used the meridian running through it’s apex as the base line for their measurements.* Having mapped Lower Egypt, they were surprised to find that this meridian neatly cut the Delta region into equal portions, and they were even more surprised when they found that the diagonals drawn through the Pyramid, at right angles to each other, completely enclosed the entire Delta. Evidently a structure which could serve as such a perfect geodetic bench-mark [landmark-Fig. E] could not have been located at random, and without considerable proficiency in astronomy, as well as a developed understanding of the configuration of the planet.”[7]  Deuteronomy shows us another occurrence of this word tavek.

Deut. 11:2-3 And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the Lord your God, His greatness, His mighty hand, and His stretched out arm, [3] And His miracles, and His acts, which He did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;

midst of Egypt”- [H8432-tavek]8 the same word as in Isa. 19:19 which is a direct reference to the Great Pyramid, but with specific relation to the Bethlehem line, which is the Pyramid’s unique witness to God’s “greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm, And his miracles, and his acts…” the many “ands” of this verse indicating the figure of speech polysyndetyn, which puts individual emphasis on each element of God’s manifested power between the “ands”. This figure presents God’s judgment on the inhabitants of the land of Egypt, encapsulated within the Great Pyramid’s lines, emanating from the center of the Earth’s landmass to encompass not only the boundaries of Egypt and the inheritance of the twelve tribes of Israel, but all creation.

Figure F.

Pyramid as the Boundary Stone of Ancient Egypt

Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day… Jeremiah 32:20a

One outcome of this research shows that the ancients calculated the mean length of a degree of latitude in ancient Egypt to within about 30 meters greater than the modern estimate, illustrating once again the blinders that evolutionary doctrine has forced on modern science’s view of the capabilities of these ancient astronomers. The reference to the tower of Syene in this verse has also been understood as “from Migdol to Syene.” This word “Migdol” also occurs in Exodus 14.

Exodus 14:2   Speak unto the children of Israel,that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

Migdol marks the spot where Moses, as a forerunner of Jesus Christ, lead the children of Israel in the miraculous crossing of the “Red Sea,” located at the eastern border of Egypt. This location was also the first prominent site indicated by the Bethlehem line of the Great Pyramid, showing the greatness of God’s “mighty hand” in delivering his people from bondage.

Isaiah 19:20a sign”- H226 [owth] A signal, flag, beacon, monument, a guiding pillar. mark, miracle, token, standard, symbol, proof or evidence. Here it refers to the Great Pyramid, the guiding pillar and monument which is a 1/43,000 scale model of the earth. The same word occurs in Gen. 1:14 denoting someone significant to come. Numbers 2 refers to the sign or “ensign” denoting the 12 constellations as the tribal ensigns for each of the 12 tribes of Israel, [Ps. 74:4]. Gen. 9:12-13 uses the rainbow as a token of God’s Covenant never to flood the earth again.

a witness”- H5707 meaning a testimony, recorder, also a Prince. From H5749: duplicate, repeat, admonish, invoke and confirm.

a savior”- H3467 [yasha] to be free, saved, to give victory, help, take vengence, preserve, Defender of the Faith. [Mt. 1:21] Jesus Christ as the complete savior, as the first and last Way of Salvation for humanity.

“deliver”- H5337 {natsal} to be delivered, saved, set free, escape. [Ps. 39:8, 51:14, 69:14, 79:9]     

How should we recognize the Great Pyramid as a monumental witness or testimony the Greatest Savior and deliverer in human history? Certainly any signs pointing to the Birth and/or Second Coming of Christ would easily qualify. As we have documented applications to the Great Pyramid on my DVD presentation on the Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ, his birth took place on Rosh HashanahSept. 11th 3BC. With corresponding signs linked to the Great Pyramid at the Birth of Christ, it would be intriguing to find complimentary signs of the Great Pyramid with the “Christ angle” marking his victorious Second Coming-on Rosh Hashanah. As with the signs at Christ’s Birth, the heavenly signs of Revelation 12, the Sun clothing Virgo can be seen forming in the sky on 9/20-21/2017-Rosh Hashanah; the Moon is in close conjunction with the sun, heading towards the feet of Virgo on the 23rd 2 days later. Venus the bright and Morning star is in conjunction with Regulus. Three days after the Rev. 12 sign on 9/23/17, Virgo is “clothed with the sun,” the moon is now under her feet, and above her head in Leo are 3 planets-Mercury, Mars, and Venus, in alignment with the king star Regulus. The 9 stars of Leo and the 3 aligned planets form the crown of 12 stars, fitting the description of the Rev. 12 sign falling on Rosh Hashanah as in 3 BC at Christ’s Birth.

 Thus the Regulus-Jupiter-Mercury alignment in Leo, approximatingthe angle of the Great Pyramid on August 6th, 2015 seems designed as a signal to get our attention leading up to the precursor heavenly signs of Rev 12, taking place next month in Sept. 2015, two years in advance of the rewind of the Rev. 12 heavenly signs 9-23-2017. The Creator is certainly bringing many resources to bear to get His point across is He not?? With all these heavenly signs occurring in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, the signs of the Great Pyramid coming on Rosh Hashanah, and the numerous planetary conjunctions repeating the pattern found at the birth of Christ, the evidence is overwhelming. What follows is a review of the heavenly signs coming next month into the fall of 2015, and the conclusion of the final Blood Moon Tetrad for over the next 500 years.

Looking forward to Part 2 of the blog post, we will see the specifics of how Mt. Zion is clearly marked in the context of the Bethlehem line and the summer sunrise marker of the Great Pyramid, and God’s mighty hand of deliverance. The following is a summary of heavenly signs over the next 8 weeks to close out the last Blood Moon of this critical Tetrad, leading into the 50-year Jubilee on the Hebrew Calendar during the Feast of Tabernacles.

September 13 2015 New Moon. The Moon will be directly between the Earth and the Sun and will not be visible from Earth. This phase occurs at 06:41 UTC.

September 13 2015 Partial Solar Eclipse. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie. A partial solar eclipse can only be safely observed with a special solar filter or by looking at the Sun’s reflection. The partial eclipse will only be visible in southern Africa, Madagascar, and Antarctica. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)
September 23 2015 September Equinox. The September equinox occurs at 08:21 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
September 28 2015  Full Moon. The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 02:50 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Corn Moon because the corn is harvested around this time of year. This moon is also known as the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the September equinox each year.
September 28 2015 BLOOD MOON – Total Lunar Eclipse. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of North and South America, Europe, Africa, and western Asia. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)
October 8, 9 2015 Draconids Meteor Shower. The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was first discovered in 1900. The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the the night of the 8th and morning of the 9th. The second quarter moon will block out all but the brightest meteors this year. If you are patient, you may be able to spot a few good ones. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
 October 13 2015 New Moon. The Moon will be directly between the Earth and the Sun and will not be visible from Earth. This phase occurs at 00:06 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.

The Blood Moon Tetrad and the Rev. 12 Heavenly Signs [Part II.]

Birth of Jesus Christ
Biblical Astronomy of the Birth of Christ

The Blood Moon Tetrad and the Rev. 12 Heavenly Signs [Part II.]

In the 2nd installment on this topic, we will pick up our previous discussion on the record of the heavenly signs in Revelation 12.

The Ascension of Christ after his Resurrection marked the mandate from heaven that the King of  Kings was recognized and installed by the power from the Throne of the Almighty Heavenly Father. This required among other things, that 1/3 of the dragon’s spirit realm be ejected from heaven and confined to the earthly realms. But the Dragon itself still retains his authority and access to the heavenlies. As we have noted the Second Coming of Christ includes declaring and setting up his Kingdom, and we can see Christ initiating his Kingdom Authority after he ascended, in removing the fallen angel’s access to the heavenly realms. The Prince of the Power of the Air; the Adversary still has access to the heavenly throne-room to accuse the righteous, but this will change as Christ readies to Gather the Church of his spiritual Body. The Gathering Together of the Body of Christ [II Thess. 2:1ff], takes place when Jesus Christ returns FOR his Saints and we meet him in the Air; [1 Thess. 4:17]. The enemy will be deprived of his current access to the heavens, along with his ability to accuse the righteous members of the Body of Christ, as Christ Gathers the Church. This is specifically recorded below in [Rev. 12:7-8] as the record clarifies first in the war in heaven, that Archangel Michael and his Angels fight against and cast down the dragon with his minions. Revelation 12:8 also refers both to the dragon and his angels-telling us “neither was their place found anymore in heaven.” Figure 4 below depicts the rod or scepter of Christ’s Kingdom authority, symbolized in the King planet Jupiter.

Figure 4. The decan of Cepheus the Crowned King

cepheus as the crowned king

The constellation Cepheus the crowned king, shows Christ in his royal authority with his scepter in hand and the Northern Pole Star under his feet [Eph. 1:19-23], the pole star Polaris, signifying Christ’s dominion over all Creation as seen in the precession of the poles.

(Rev 12:5) And2532 she brought forth5088 a man730 child,5207 who3739 was3195 to rule4165 all3956 nations1484 with1722 a rod4464 of iron:4603 And  her848 child5043 was caught up726 unto4314 God,2316 and to his848 throne.

As we view the dual aspects of these Rev. 12 prophecies, we see Christ’s completed works, summarized in his sufferings, from birth through finishing his ministry, followed in his glorious Kingdom where he truly “rules all nations with a rod of iron.” This glorious aspect of Christ’s kingdom authority is not fulfilled until after the 2nd phase of the Lord Returning WITH his Saints is completed [Rev. 19:11-19]. This tells us that this Rev. 12:5 record is not strictly chronological in how all of its elements are set forth. As a result, the key aspects of Rev. 12 can carry varied meanings depending on which dual aspects of the record are being emphasized. The woman symbolized by the sign Virgo the virgin, can refer to Mary who birthed Jesus in verse 5, but it can also refer to Israel in Rev. 12:6; where she flees into the wilderness and is fed by God 1260 days. The word “child” can also refer to Jesus born of Mary, or the 7 Christian Churches addressed in [Rev. 1-3]as the spiritual Body of Christ that is “caught up unto God.” The emphasis here shows Christ’s ultimate victory over the serpent and its seed, despite all the enemy’s efforts to obstruct the purposes of the Heavenly Father. The second part of this verse refers to her [Virgo’s] child [G5043-teknon]1 or “toddler.” Since Jesus was not ascended as a child, but an adult who had just laid down his life as the perfect sacrifice to redeem Mankind, his ascension fulfills his status as the first fruits from the dead. Also, the child here is “caught up;” [G726-harpazo]1 to God and His Throne. This Greek word is not used to refer to Christ’s [G305-anabaino] Ascension, but Harpazo is used specifically of the Gathering Together of the Church when we are “caught up” to meet the Lord in the Air [I Thess. 4:17], at the “Rapture.” Since the Church of Christian Believers collectively fits the description of a “childspiritually when Christ Gathers us Together, better than Christ would himself at his Ascension [Eph. 4:8-10], it seems likely that this reference would apply in its dual significance to the Church Gathered together in glory, more than to the Ascension of Christ, after his sufferings. When Jesus completed the sufferings [Heb. 4:15] of his ministry and sacrifice for Israel and all Mankind, this was followed by the Day of Pentecost in 28 AD, which opened the Age of Grace. When Christ comes to Gather his Church, this closes out the Age of Grace; [Eph. 1:10, II Cor. 5:10], initiating the Revelation [Apokalupsis] period, where the events of the Book of Revelation take place.

As we have pointed out in other posts on this blog, these truths are also preserved in the ancient sentinels of the Giza Plateau; the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid. The union of the heavenly signs of Leo the lion, with the woman Virgo in the female-headed Great Sphinx also depicts the life of Jesus, from birth, starting with the setting of Spica on September 11th, 3 BC. This is not only depicted in Rev. 12:5 above, but also in Gen. 49:9 as Christ’s human maturation from lion’s whelp, where his prey is provided for him, seen in Job 38:39-41 below, to stalking his own prey, unto his ultimate victory casting down and rending the dragon. This is the 3-fold theme from Gen. 49:9-10 ties directly to the celestial wonders of Revelation 12, linking God’s Word together with His stellar revelation. We can see this set for us at the canonical start and finish of both the Biblical and stellar gospels, forming a parallel testimony of the Scriptures with the stars. We have seen powerful specific examples of this in the celestial triple coronation ceremony of the three unions of Jupiter and Regulus in Leo, from 3-2 BC, marking the birth of Christ.

Figure 5. The Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid


We find added evidence for this in Virgo’s crown, of the 12 signs/tribes/Apostles of the Church of Christ’s Body. This theme is monumentally preserved in the Great Sphinx with the head of the Woman Virgo bearing the infant promised seed, who matures to fulfill his highest of callings, by defeating and destroying the enemy’s works, as shown in the other 10 zodiacal signs between Virgo and Leo. Here we have a reference to the Crown of 12 stars of the woman-Virgo, as her Promised Seed; Leo the Lion of the Tribe of Judah rules over the 12 tribes of Israel.

In the DENDERAH ZODIACLeo the lion bears the Egyptian name Pi-Mentikeon which tells of pouring out the divine wrath. Another Egyptian word referring to Leo is Aryo, the rending Lion,2 which is seen in Job 38.

Figure 6. Leo the Lion rending Hydra-the Serpent Destroyed

leo the lion

Job 38:39-41. 39. Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? Or fill the appetite of the young lions, 40. When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait? 41. Who provideth for the raven his food? When his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

 This section of the book of Job also reveals the decan of Leo called Corvus the Raven who, as we can see below in Figure. 6, with the other carrion-eaters and birds of the field, feasts upon the carcass of Hydra the serpent destroyed. An interesting astronomical truth in support of this lies in the fact that the crowned head of Virgo actually bridges about 10 degrees into the sign Leo on the ecliptic. We have already seen this in connection with the star Denebola, in the lion’s tail. The star Sarcam in Leo, is a Hebrew word meaning “the joining,“3 identifying the point where the two ends of the Zodiacal circle have their joining. This is borne out in the sign Corvus, the bird of prey devouring the sea-monster Hydra, a decan of Virgo. The bright star in the eye of Corvus the Raven, called Al Chibar in Arabic means “joining together,”4 referring also to the union of as these two ends of the true zodiac! This is pictured in Figure 7 below, depicting the Hydra a major sea-dragon constellation [Isa. 27:1], with Corvus the Raven and carrion eater, shown devouring the perishing remains of the destroyed Serpent. As the last sign of the Biblical zodiac, confirming the witness of the stars that God set in them, the Astronomy of the ancients speaks loudly in support of both the Scriptures and the heavens, as they declare the Coming Redeemer of Mankind to the glory of God; [Ps. 19:1]. As we start this study in Virgo and wrap it up in Leo, we see a primary purpose of the Great Sphinx, formed as the head of Virgo the Woman, and he body of Leo the Lion– the alpha and omega of the celestial scroll, witnessing the promised seed of mankind as the first and last way of redemption provided by the Hand of the Creator. With the witness of the other monumental elements of the Giza Plateau in unison with this record, we are afforded a most powerful testimony of Biblical Archaeo-Astronomy in the Creator’s application of His Intelligent Design principles that He incorporated into His Creation.

Figure 7. The Constellation Hydra; the Serpent destroyed, with the Raven.

His final defeat of the serpent is witnessed in Leo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah [Rev. 5:5], as the Lion’s extended claws are set to rend the Hydra-the old serpent destroyedto pieces. The Hydra is the longest of the Constellations, extending below Libra’s scales through Virgo and Leo to include the sign of Cancer. These four signs; the woman, her seed, his sacrifice, and the altar, not only represent 1/3 of the entire circle of the 12 signs of the zodiac, but also depict a carnal facsimile of Christ’s righteous sacrifice, in the religion of human works, attempting to earn salvation while ignoring the completed work of Grace, given by God in His only begotten Son. Thus, as the Hydra [the serpent destroyed] slithers below these four signs of the zodiac, he represents the counterfeit and deception of the antichrist, leading away from, and denying the true work of Christ. This is a key end-time aspect of the devil’s works that Christ comes to destroy . In this end-timeline of Rev. 12, we find not only the Gathering Together of the Church prior to the “war in heaven” in verse 7, but also the woman is travailing in birth leading up to the delivery of the Church’s Gathering. This alerts us to the time of “Jupiter’s birthing” in Virgo, which takes place Sept. 9th, 2017. The symbolism of the king planet Jupiter being birthed in Virgo, embodies the birth of Christ’s Kingdom, as the Church of his spiritual body is manifested with him in heaven, at the right hand of the heavenly Father. An interesting note is that although the Jupiter/scepter/rod of iron enters Virgo on 8-26/27-2016 marking one of the 3 conjunctions of Jupiter-Venus in 2016-2017, it does not enter Virgo’s womb until November of 2016, where it spends 42 weeks in retrograde, a period well within the normal time of human gestation. When Jupiter exits the stellar enclosure marking Virgo’s womb on Sept. 9th, 2017, Jupiter’s “birthingcould signify a time period where the birth of the Kingdom of Christ may logically be initiated, with the Gathering Together of his spiritual body the Church. It is also noteworthy that the Feast of Trumpets occurs at the New Moon on 9-21-2017, [1 Thess. 4:16-17]. This is not a prediction of when the Church’s Gathering in Christ will occur, but only a summary of these Bible record details, combined with what the Biblical Astronomy of these heavenly signs tells us about this important time in our history and current events, highlighted by the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, and its historical impact for Israel during the Age of Grace over the last 2000 years.

In verse 7 we have the Archangel Michael contending in spiritual warfare against the dragon and his angels. In verse 9 we find four names of the adversary [dragon, old serpent, the Devil, and Satan], referring to four different aspects of the enemy’s spiritual dominion over the darkness of this world. We also see a fifth name-deceiver, which is a common trait in the other four names of the enemy. The Devil must deceive people into following his ways, because nobody in their right mind would ever voluntarily follow him if they knew his true nature. Thus deception is a universal trait of the enemy’s kingdom, and his key mode of operation. This shows how the enemy has marshalled his spiritual forces of fallen angels as they oppose the Heavenly Father’s Godly order. We have just seen two examples of how the serpentine aspects of the enemy’s spiritual dominion are celestially represented in the Dragon-Draco and HydraLets take a closer look at Serpens the serpent.

Figure 7. Ophiuchus and Serpens in a Struggle for the Crown of Creation.

serpentine asterism

One aspect of Serpens that arrests our attention is the recurring theme of the dragon’s head and tail, that we discussed in Part I, linked with the serpentine asterism of Draco. This points to a shadow of the 4D symbolism of the Cardinal Directions, painting a picture of composite truth, as their shadows do also. Just as each of the Serpent’s 4 names in Rev. 12:9, indicate different functions in how the adversary opposes God’s purposes, so these serpents in the sky indicate varying aspects of his activity, which when taken together, provide us a detailed picture of how he works his evil designs in his dark world kingdom. Thus we should consider these four serpentine signs both individually and collectively, as shadows of the cardinal points, to glean a fuller lesson of their message.

As Robert Burnham states: ”Serpens is the only star group completely divided into two portions: Serpens Caput [head] to the west of Ophiuchus, and Serpens Cauda [tail] to his east. In support of this concept, the stars within this Constellation follow suit. Burnham points out that “the Beta star in Serpens marks the head… while the Theta star marks the end of the serpent’s tail.5 [ppg.1764-65] He goes on to highlight an intriguing link to Roman myth, where “Serpens is a symbol of the divine healer Aesculapius who became the god of medicine, and who appears in the sky as Ophiuchus the serpent bearer.” 6

Ophiuchus’ battle against his enemy is pictured in this Constellation group as the Scorpion and Serpens. This gives us an example of how to take a composite view to glean the truth from these celestial signs. Man’s struggle for dominion against the serpent is highlighted by the temporary wound the serpent inflicts on him, as shown by the scorpion’s stinging of his heel [Gen. 3:15]. The star picture of this initial prophecy of the promised seed cannot be fully grasped, unless we take a composite look at these signs [Ophiuchus, Serpens, Sagittarius, Scorpius & Corona]. The same can be said of the four serpents in the sky, where the function and mode of operation of the evil one is concerned. A case in point we are illustrating here relates to the Mayan prophecy of the end of the World that began on December 21st, 2012. Our view of this heavenly sign-focused at the galactic center of the Milky Way Galaxy, is based on the Biblical Astronomy of this scenario, much more than the emphasis given to Mayan Astrology by many others.

The graphic below from the Voyager17 Astronomy program depicts the sky on this date initiating the end of the world based on the Mayan Astrology. The main components of the scene include Sagittarius, representing the returning Lord Jesus Christ, riding his flying white steed in ultimate victory in the spiritual warfare against the dragon and its brood, represented by Serpens and Scorpius the scorpion. The Sun is centered at the tip of Sagittarius’ arrow which is pointed at the red star Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, as it’s simultaneously being crushed from above by the foot of Ophiuchus. This reveals the light of the world shining his inescapable brilliance on the kingdom of darkness, as he totally exposes the evil works of the enemy while conquering and laying waste to them all. This again represents part of Jesus’ declaration and establishment of his kingdom, in the Second phase of his victorious 2nd Coming, as he Returns WITH his Saints, who have already been Gathered Together, and are riding by his side as the armies of Heaven; [Rev. 19:11ff] setting up his everlasting kingdom of Light.

light on the kingdom of darkness

As The Sun of God arises here with healing in his wings, the light of the world; [II Peter 1:19], is pictured in the heel of Ophiuchus. This is the heel wounded by the Scorpion, but his sacrificial death was only temporary, unlike the deadly head wound he inflicts on the serpent. This image of Jesus as the great healer of all our wounds was foreshadowed by Moses’ Brass Serpent, also known as the Caduceus. Even today, the symbol of the medical arts is this Caduceus. This ancient icon formed on mirrored serpents spiraling around a pole, finds its Biblical precedent in the book of Numbers 21. As we acknowledge the stellar elements of the Celestial Sphinx we can see the heavenly signs marking the birth of Christ rewinding in the context of the Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015. God has seeded his celestial order with these heavenly signs to forewarn us of the end-times that we have the privilege to experience first hand, the Hope of the Ages, the Victorious Second Coming of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior. Lets us help rescue as many of those who will acknowledge these truths with us, to enjoy our everlasting salvation with the Heavenly Father in Christ Jesus!
