This will be the best show of these stars tonight, April 3, 2020. Right after sundown, look west and you will see a bright star. This will be the conjunction of the planet Venus and the 7 stars that form Pleiades in the neck of Taurus ‘the Bull’. Spaceweather.com says this will be the best viewing of this conjunction in 8 years.

Now I will show you why I am really excited about this heavenly sign tonight. Remember, several proven prophets have been saying this is going to be the most outstanding Passover we have ever seen!!

On the Hebraic Calendar, tonight at sundown is the 10th day of the 1st month of the year. God directed Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:2, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. (3) “Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,  “Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.” They were going to inspect the lamb for 4 days (vs 6) and then on the 14th day at twilight (sundown), they were to kill that lamb, put the blood of the lamb on their doorposts, and roast the lamb for the entire household to eat that evening.  At midnight the death angel would kill each first-born that was not behind the door of blood.

The 10th of the 1st month during the week of the Crucifixion of Jesus was when He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling Zechariah 9:9. Each of the 4 Gospels record what Christian congregations now call “Palm Sunday”. The Christian calendar of the Holy Week does not always line up with God’s calendar, but this year it is very close, both being on the Sabbath of their faith and the same weekend.

What I see in this heavenly sign tonight is Jesus coming to inspect the 7 Churches of Revelation 2-3. (read Revelation 1:12-20). These 7 church had historical meaning, and personal meaning to each of us today.

Below I will lay out what each of these heavenly stars mean from Biblical Astronomy. Remember, Genesis 1:14 said these ‘light holders’ were to be for ‘Signs’ and for ‘Seasons’.

Taurus the Bull With Orion

TAURUS – ‘The Bull’ 

  • Message of the stars in order of brightness, “Messiah, the coming Judge of all the earth”
  • Hebrew name “Shur“, meaning ‘coming and ruling’
    • Remember – God named each star with a purpose. (Ps 147:4)
    • Wandering Stars – planets
    • Fixed Stars – constellation – each constellation reads from Virgo about Jesus’ 1st Coming and ends with Leo and Jesus’ 2nd Coming.
  • E.W. Bullinger in his classic book, Witness of the Stars reads, “This is a picture of a Bull rushing forward with mighty energy and fierce wrath, his horns set so as to push his enemies, and pierce them through and destroy them.” (pg 120)
  • Interesting connection to the current stock market – a Bear Market is a down market because a bear’s claws come down. A Bull Market is when the market comes up because a bull lifts up with his horns. (I hope this sign will be announcing the upswing of the world stock market soon)
  • Look at the picture above, at the neck and shoulders of the Bull. You will see 7 stars clustered together. That cluster is knows as Pleiades.
  • These represent the 7 Churches of Rev 2-3. Historically, when John was given this revelation of Jesus, there were 7 actual churches in a circuit at the base of the “Taurus” Mountains, in the area what is today called Turkey.

PLEIADES  (aka ‘Seven Sisters’ or  M45)

  • Job 38:31, 32, “Can you bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?”
    • Mazzaroth is the Hebrew name for ‘constellation’ – each has a season on the path circuit God ordered on the 4th day of Creation.
  • Pleiades is also mentioned in Job 9:9 and Amos 5:8.
  • In Hebrew Pleiades is called ‘kiymah’ and means “Congregation of the Ruler”, a heap or a cluster
  • This is a cluster of 7 stars that are in the Constellation of Taurus, ‘The Bull’ (see sky map above.
  • The Seven Churches of Revelation 2 & 3 were main churches in a circuit at the base of the Taurus Mountains (today Turkey)

VENUS

  • Venus is one of the main planets of Creation. To be a sign for the world to see, it must be visible with the naked eye. According to Rabbinical teachers, there were 7 planets that formed a heavenly menorah on the 4th day of Creation. 
  • Venus in Hebrew is called, ‘Nogah‘, meaning ‘brightness’
  • Known as the ‘morning star’ because it can be seen just before sunrise and closer to the sun than earth. The day of the Lord, like the dawning of any calendar day, does not burst forth abruptly. It is not pitch back at 5:59 am and then bright morning the at 6am. The night gradually recedes as dawn comes. In that transition, before dawn breaks, the morning star begins to shine on the eastern horizon. This is actually the planet Venus. This portrays what God intends for the Bride of Christ in these last days before our Beloved Bridegroom comes for us. (Isaiah 60:1-3, ‘arise shine’)
  • Revelation 22:16 reads, ““I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.
    • We see the Bride of Christ being symbolized as ‘morning star’, but also Jesus Himself stated that He is the Bright and Morning Star.”

The Church belongs to Jesus and I believe what is happening around the world today is not just an event, but an invitation to return back to your first love.

The Seven Church Periods throughout history align with the order of the Seven Churches of Revelation.

  1. EPHESUSThe Apostolic Church– Pentecost to 170 AD
  2. SMYRNA – The Age of Persecution – 170 – 312 AD
  3. PERGAMUMThe Age of False Doctrine – 312 – 606 AD
  4. THYATIRAThe Age of Darkness – 606 – 1520 AD
  5. SARDISThe Age of Reformation – 1520 – 1750 AD
  6. PHILADELPHIAThe Age of Missions – 1750-1906 AD
  7. LAODICEAThe Age of Apostasy – 1906 to present

I urge you during these next 4 days to get quiet, Read Rev 3:14-22 about the “Lukewarm Church” and judge (inspect) yourself. Maybe you would like to read both chapters 2 & 3. Revelation 1:3 states there is a blessing just for reading and hearing this amazing book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Then take communion – just you and Jesus. You don’t need a priest to take communion. Revelation 1:5-6 tells us that Jesus washed us in His own blood and made us kings (authority) and priests (access to God).

 

Corona, “The Crown Bestowed” is one of the constellations of the 1st of 3 Books in Heaven that tell the story of Jesus from Virgin (Virgo) to the last of the 3rd Book, Leo ‘The Lion’, The Lion of the Tribe of Judah aroused for the rending of the enemy.  God is the Creator of the Stars, He named each star and numbered each star. Jesus may have come to be the Sacrificial Lamb, but He will come back SOON Roaring as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!

Corona

Book One consists of 4 main constellations, with each having 3 smaller constellations.

  • VIRGO‘The Virgin’ – The Promised Seed of a Woman
    • Coma – ‘The Desired’ The Desired of all  nations
    • Centaurus – ‘The Centaur’ The despised sin offering
    • Bootes – ‘The Coming One’ He Cometh
  • LIBRA‘The Scales’ – The price deficient balanced by the price that covers
    • Crux – ‘The Southern Cross’ The Cross Endured
    • Victima – ‘The Victim’ The Victim Slain
    • CORONA – ‘The Crown’ The Crown Bestowed
  • SCORPIO‘The Scorpion’ – The serpent seeking to wound, but itself trodden under foot
    • Ophiuchus – ‘The Serpent Holder’ The struggle with the enemy
    • Serpens – ‘The Serpent’ The serpent struggling with many
    • Hercules – ‘The Mighty One’ The mighty Vanquisher seeming to sink in conflict
  • SAGITTARIUS – ‘The Archer’ Conquering and to Conquer
    • Lyra – ‘The Harp’ Praise prepared for the Conqueror
    • Ara – ‘The Altar’ Consuming fire prepared for His enemies
    • Draco – ‘The Dragon’ The old serpent, the devil, cast down from heaven

Phil 2:9-10 reads, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” The devil is a counterfeit, a liar, a deceiver and has tried to counterfeit the heavens for his purpose. But Jesus is on the Throne in the Third Heaven and satan knows his time is running out. Even with this current pandemic, he has tried to steal the attention of ‘the Crown’ to cause fear.

So, let’s hear God’s plan for this constellation. One of my favorite references is “The Witness of the Stars” by E.W. Bullinger. He states that each chapter of each book ends with the glory and the glory of the SCALES, is that Jesus won  the Crown! Hebrew 2:7 declares, “You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him (Jesus) with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands.” The shameful Cross (Crux) is followed by the glorious Crown!

The Hebrew name is Atarah, ‘a royal crown’, and its stars are known today in the East by the plural, Ataroth! Its Arabic name is Al Iclil,  meaning ‘an ornament’ or jewel.

This small constellation is made up of 21 stars. The brightest star has the Arabic name of Al Phecca, ‘the shining‘.

D. James Kennedy wrote in “The Real Meaning of the Zodiac”, pg 33 about this constellation. “Look up in the sky and see the Northern Crown, the Corona Borealis (which, by the way, shines at midnight every night over the city of Jerusalem) and be reminded that there is a crown for those who are faithful to Jesus Christ.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday night, January 20 over North and South America there will be a full moon, that is also a Super Moon, that is also a Wolf Moon.  This Part 1 will deal with the specifics of the eclipse. Part 2 will deal with the significance of it being over the United States in the specific time period of chaos we are experiencing.

The partial eclipse begins at 10:34 p.m. CST, total eclipse begins at 10:41 p.m. CST, totality ends at 11:44 a.m. CST, partial eclipse ends at 12:51 a.m. CST. There will be totality for 62 minutes. Below are some of the very unusual things about this Total Lunar Eclipse.

  • The last Super Blood Moon for 18 years.
  • Wolf Moon – this is a Native Indian term for the first full moon of the year (January) when it is frozen in the north and the wolves howl out of hunger.
    • Last year, January 1, 2018 was a Super Wolf Moon
    • It was interesting that the networks in the United States were all talking about Michael Wolff’s new book that was being released, ‘Fire and Fury’.
    • The interesting thing about wolves is they travel in pack, eat flesh, brutal, fierce and tear their prey to pieces – this is exactly the intention of this book.
    • Coincidence? There is no Hebrew word for coincidence.
  • Super Moon – perigee, closest to the earth. This will come within 90% of its closest approach to the Earth
    • 2017-2018 saw 3 super moons in 60 days- VERY UNUSUAL
    • Dec 2-3, 2017, Super Moon
    • Jan 1, 2018, Super Wolf Moon
    • Jan 31, 2018, Super Blue Blood Moon (named blue because of 2 full moons in one month.
  • This year there will be 3 Super Moons in a row
    • January 20, 2019 – Super Blood Wolf Moon
    • February 19, 2019
    • March 21, 2019 – Feast of Purim
  • We get two to five supermoons every year but not normally 3 in a row. The gap between blood moons is anywhere from six months to about three years. You can also plan on around one to five super blood moons each decade, but they only fall in January three times this century with the 3rd and final being Jan. 31, 2037.
  • Total Lunar Eclipse – the only one of 2019
  • First total Eclipse seen over both North and South America in 17 years
    • Next will be May 26, 2021
  • The moon will eclipse in the constellation The Crab – Cancer
    • In Biblical Astronomy this constellation reveals “Messiah’s Redeemed Possessions Held Fast.”
    • The position of the moon will be in the center of the constellation by a group of 45 stars that make it look like 1 huge star. That is all the “Beehive”
    • Last year’s Super Blue Blood Moon January 31, 2018 the moon was positioned in Cancer’s claws
  • Both Super Blood Moons of January 31, 2018 and January 20, 2019 fall on the Hebrew New Year of the Trees, Tu B’Shevat
    • Leviticus 19:23-25; 26:3-4
    • Luke 21:29, Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree (Israel), and all the trees (nations of prophecy)
    • Watch the prophetic nations lining up, especially watch Syria and Damascus (Is 17:1)
    • This is NO COINCIDENCE – this is a major sign!

Tomorrow I will bring Part 2 and I will ask this question, “What is the Hebrew word for coincidence?” To which the reply is, there is none.

Thursday night from Dallas, Austin and Houston areas, there were reports of fireballs and they caught these on cell phone camera as they drove.

The Leonid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity on 18 November 2018. Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible each night from 15 November to 20 November. Annual meteor showers arise when the Earth passes through streams of debris left behind by comets and asteroids. I found this in http://www.in-the-sky.org and it can be found in several sky watch sights.

But what they don’t tell you is what the Bible has to say about Meteors! They are part of the ‘wandering stars’ in the heavens. The fixed stars are constellations they keep their place in the heavens. But the wandering stars consist of all planets, asteroids and Meteors. They all have a path and cycle of their own.

  • Meteoroid is a rock in space (debris) from an asteroid or comet orbiting the sun
  • Meteor is what the rock becomes when it hits the atmosphere. It is a flash of light that we see in the night sky when a small chunk of interplanetary debris burns up and passes through our atmosphere. It is often called a ‘shooting star’ or ‘falling star’ and refers to the flash of light and not the debris.
  • Meteorite is what remains of it, should it survive the journey and hit earth
  • Meteor showers are intense meteor showers than can produce up to 1,000 stars (meteors) per hour

Revelation 6:13 records what will happen as the Lamb opens the 6th Seal. “And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.” (Matthew 24:29; Mark 13:25; Isaiah 34:4) The stars that fall from heaven are Meteors, ‘falling stars’, ‘shooting stars’,  and today are called fireballs by the media.

February 15, 2013 was an incredible week as Pope Benedict XVI resigned. I remember turning on 700 Club after I heard the Lord speak to me, “You have short window of time to get the message of the Signs in the Heavens to as many people as possible.” That voice was like a command and that is all I heard. I was expecting a household of woman at 10am for a meeting and I sat down to have a cup of coffee and watch 700 Club news and Pat Robertson announce that the Pope resigned and there was going to be a giant asteroid that Friday that could affect the satellite that affect the power to the East Coast. Now I was in full attention! That Thursday, February 14, T. L. Osborn went to heaven and it was recorded by Neville Johnson that a Meteor was going to be a sign of a great man going home to heaven. On the other side of the earth, a great meteor exploded 12 miles over an area. I wrote about it in my blog, along with several other meteor sightings. https://mbostrom2.com/tag/meteorite. By the way, the expected asteroid that Friday was no problem, but it caused many to look up!

Last night, November 16, as we drove home from Houston, the moon was only a quarter lit, but it lit up the entire sky. I wanted to see what it looked like in the heavens on my SkyView app so I took this photo attached below. You will see the planet Mars on the hip of Aquarius, the Water Bearer. Mars is often called the ‘planet of war’ because when it is close to earth, historically war breaks out. Coming forth in the water being poured out is  the planet Neptune (not one of the original 7 planets) hiding behind the quarter moon. The amazing thing to me is that the moon was not full, and yet it was so incredibly bright in the sky. I believe that this quarter moon and the meteors falling are a sign to look up, for the promises of the pouring out of His Spirit for this next great harvest will be met with great opposition (Mars). This causes us to understand that God is going to keep His promises of this great Harvest, awakening – but the enemy knows that his time is short and will come with great wrath.

The Torah reading today is Va Yetze (And he went out) from Genesis 28:10-32:2, the story of Jacob and his time in servitude under Laban. Next week the Torah reading will cover when Jacob was struck in the hip and his name was changed from Jacob (heel, deceit) to Israel (prevailing, superiority). Somehow Mars in the hip of Aquarius is causing me to dig into the Word so this is no my last word of these heavenly signs. Expect more…..

Aquarius 11.16.18

The longest totality of a Blood Moon in this Century was not seen in the United States, but the SkyView App on my iphone made it possible to find out what constellation this 1 hour and 43 minutes of totality would occur. You can see below the moon (app does not pick up the blood color) and Mars on the Constellation Capricorn.

Capricorn is the Sea Goat, “The goat of atonement slain for the Redeemed.” This begins the 2nd book of the 3 books in heaven that tell the story of Jesus. The first book was “The Redeemer, His coming and sufferings”, the 3rd book tells about “His Second Coming, and the glory that shall follow”. This 2nd book and its chapters (constellations) tell about the benefits to the Redeemed, the Church”.

The Goat part of Capricorn tells of the Atoning Sacrifice and coming out of the Sacrifice is the Fish, representing the Redeemed.  The Hebrew name for this constellation is Gedi, ‘the kid or cut off’.

Mars makes the entire heavenly sign very interesting. I have been reading that this sign with Mars being as big as the Moon has not happened for 35000 years.

And it happened on the Hebrew Day of LOVE? In history, Mars would be a sign of war coming to earth. In history, a Blood Moon over Israel was a bad omen for Israel. But we are in very unusual times, where everything changes. God is sending HUGE signs in the heavens, and I think there will be very trying times for Israel with Hezbollah in the North, Syria in the North West and Hamas on the South East. I believe God will be glorified in what He plans to do to protect His covenant land and covenant people.

Blood Moon and Mars on Capricorn July 27 2018

Psalm 19:1-6 speak of the Bible in the heavens. The Constellations are 12 main constellations (12 the divine number of government, Tribes, Apostles) and each has 3 decans (smaller constellations) that all tell the story of Jesus from His First Coming to His Second Coming.

My main study was from E. W. Bullinger’s book, The Witness of the Stars. He teaches that the constellations are divided into 3 books, with each book having 4 chapters that tell the entire story. God named each one of the stars and from the names and meanings of each name, from he brightest on down, come the understanding of each constellation and it’s part of the divine story of Jesus Christ and His Church.

Below is part one of the teaching of the Heaven’s Declaring the Glory of God (Ps 19)
