Sky 07.01.15 Venus JupiterSky 06.30.15 Venus Jupiter

This week will be a great opportunity to view an amazing alignment in the heavens with Venus (the bright and morning star) and Jupiter (the King planet). One astronomy source suggests that a similar rare conjunction of Venus and Jupiter may have been what’s been called the “Star of Bethlehem” in 3-2 BC. Matthew 2:1, “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, (2) Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” That ‘star’ was a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in alignment with Regulus. These Magi were recorded to be from the teaching of Daniel who told them a king would be born to the Jews when they saw this heavenly alignment. This prophecy given by Balaam was recorded in Number 24:17, “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. There shall come a star out of Jacob, and a scepter (king) shall rise out of Israel. And it shall crush the forehead of Moab and break down all the sons of tumult.”

There are three heavenly KING signs that lined up for the Messiah’s First Coming.

  • King planetJupiter ; Hebrew Tzedek, means righteousness. This ‘wandering star’ was known as the King David planet and has come to represent Israel
  • King starRegulus in Latin and means ‘kingly’, this is the brightest star on the ecliptic on the heart of Leo.
  • King ConstellationLeo the Lion; Hebrew Arieh. This ‘fixed star constellation’ representing the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev 5:5) The paw of Leo is crushing the head of “Hydra, the Serpent”, who takes up one third of the ecliptic circle. (Rev 12:9; 20:2) Joseph Seiss, author of The Gospel of the Stars, tells us that the front paw proceeds from that star and the forepaw of a lion can exert the same force as dropping a twenty-five pound sledgehammer. With one blow of the paw it can break the backbone of an ox or crush the skull of a horse. With one blow its claws can cut four inches of depth in another beast. “Crater”, the cup of judgment (Rev 14:10) is being poured out over Hydra and Corvus the Raven, which is the last constellation in the Story of Jesus in the heavenlies is on Hydra’s back, devouring the serpent. (Prov 30:17; Rev 19:17-18)

With all the events that are lining up this Shemitah year, I believe that we are being assured that the Kingdom of God rules over all, and there will be a judgment of all things. This is a wonderful opportunity to draw closer to God and His Word. Keep looking up! His redemption is drawing nigh- closer than you think!
