Sky View on Eve of Day of Atonement

Tonight was the sun was setting on Yom Kippur, the feast of Day of Atonement, I was looking at the waxing moon. I took this photo with the SkyViewApp on my IPhone. The moon is resting on Capricorn, the “Sea Goat”. Capricorn represents ‘atonement’ and shows the Church and our benefits purchased at a great price.

Yom Kippur Eve 2014The Sea Goat appears to be dying with its head down, the right leg folded under the body and seems unable to rise with the left. The other part of the body is like a fish that is full of life.

  • In the Goat, we have the Atoning sacrifice as Jesus was that ‘scape goat’, sin offering
  • In the Fish we have the people for whom the atonement was made

The Egyptian name is Hu-perius, which means ‘the place of the sacrifice’. The Hebrew and Arabic name for the sign is Gedi, the ‘kid cut off‘ or ‘cut off‘. Capricorn is the Latin name and means ‘goat‘.

In the Old Testament, goats were often used for the sacrifice.

  • Leviticus 10:16, “Then Moses made careful inquiry about the goat of the sin offering, and there it was-burned up.”
  • Leviticus 9:3, “And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, ‘take a kid of the goats as a sin offering.”

On the Day of Atonement, there would be two goats. The High Priest would cast lots over the two goats. The High Priest would cast lots over the two goats to determine which would be the scapegoat who was called ‘azazel’ in Hebrew.

  • Leviticus 17:7-10, 22, “The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.”
  • The sins were carried away with the goat, and when the goat was pushed over the cliff, the scarlet cord that was tied onto the door of the Temple would turn white. (Until the time of Jesus, when it never turned white again) Isaiah 1:18
  • Satan worshipers use a goat in satanic worship even today, perverting the real meaning.

The chief stars of the 51 stars that make up this constellation are:

  • Al Gedi – ‘the kid or goat’
  • Deneb Al Gedi – ‘the sacrifice cometh’
  • Dabih – ‘the sacrifice slain’
  • Ma’asad- ‘the slaying’
  • Sa’ad al Naschira – ‘the record of the cutting off’

The tail of the goat is the tail of the fish

  • A living fish proceeds from a dead goat (out of death proceeds life)
  • John 3:5, “Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.'”
  • The Fish relates to the Redeemed, born again Christians in their new birth

Psalm 19:1, The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. (2) Day unto day utters speech,
and night unto night reveals knowledge. (3) There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.

    Wow, this was informative!

    Didn’t know they cast lots (ß) for which goat ~ another reference! Where did you find this: the scarlet cord that was tied onto the door of the Temple would turn white.

    Send that to Perry Stone if he doesn’t already know it…. Amazing how much the goat pointed the Jews to Messiah when he was slain & they still missed it.

    Lastly, just wondering, what made you put Leviticus 10:16 before 9:3?

    And I know you are very busy
