First of all, there is so much confusion about this star but I am thankful that people are focusing on the Birth of Jesus Christ at this time of year instead of Santa and COVID19. Confusing debates such as : was Saturn and Jupiter what the Magi saw or was it Jupiter and Venus; was this conjunction 400 or 800 years ago; does Saturn have a Satanic connection? That last question I know for sure – God is the Creator of all things and He named and numbered all the stars. (Ps 147:4) Like I said, much confusion that we do not need right now.

But I am going to state from a Biblical Astronomy about tonight’s siting of Jupiter and Saturn. Tonight I took a photo from my SkyView App on my iphone so let’s take a look at what we see.

JUPITER – in this photo we see Jupiter, but cannot see Saturn. But you can see Saturn’s rings. Saturn is so close to Jupiter that they look like one star. I am in Orlando and we can see it clearly in the sky with all the lights of the area blinding out the other stars. Jupiter is the KING PLANET and has represented King David and Israel. God named this planet TZEKEK which means ‘righteousness‘. It is the largest of all the original 7 planets at Creation (Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, Sun, Moon) that lined up on the 4th day of Creation. Josephus records in the Antiquities of the Jews 3.7.7, “these seven represent the Menorah (candlestick) of the Temple.”

SATURN – God named this planet Shabbtai and it means ‘rest’, such as the Sabbath Rest. This is one of the most brilliant and beautiful planets. Saturn is surrounded by over 1000 rings made of dust and ice. Saturn is total gas and continues to hold the beautiful shape and form as when God created this magnificent planet. Saturn has at least 52 moons.

Jupiter and Saturn are the slowest moving of all the planets and are both made of brilliant gas. They are the 2 largest of the planets.

CAPRICORN means “atonement”. This shows in the Heavenly Bible (Ps 19:1-6) and all the named stars in the Constellation a part of the Story of Jesus. This shows the Church and our benefits purchased at a great price. Capricorn has been called “the Sea Goat”. It appears to be dying with its head bowed down, the right leg folded under the body and seems unable to rise with the left. The other part of his body is like a fish full of life. In the Goat we have the Atoning Sacrifice (scapegoat). In the Fish we have the people for whom the atonement was made. In Egyptian this constellation is called ‘Hu-penius’, which means ‘the place of the sacrifice’. The Hebrew and Arabic name for the sign is ‘Gedi’, the ‘kid cut off’ or ‘cut off’. Capricornus is merely the Latin name of the sign and means ‘goat’.

In the Old Testament, goats were often used for the sacrifice. Leviticus 10:16 reads, “Then Moses made careful inquiry about the goat of the sin offering, and there it was-burned up.” Leviticus 9:3 reads, “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 were two goats. The High Priest would cast lots over the two goats to determine which would be the sacrifice, ‘for the Lord’. The scapegoat was called ‘azazel’ in Hebrew. Sins were carried away with the scapegoat and when the goat was pushed over the cliff and died, the scarlet cord that was tied unto the door of the Temple would turn white. (Isaiah 1:18)

The tail of the goat is of a fish. A living fish proceeds from a dead goat. Fish relates to Born Again Christians, New Birth. The Greek symbols of “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior” is ichtus, and means ‘fish’. This symbol was used in the early days of Christianity to let others know you are a believer in Jesus.

This night is a very high occult night around the world because of the Winter Solstice and they will see this night different than we see it. We see Jesus the way God wanted us to see in the Biblical astronomy.

Keep looking up – your redemption is nigh. Luke 21:28

Let us look up and be thankful the Jesus died for all of us and that the world is looking up the heavens, wondering if there is a God to save them. I love how the Passion Translation brings out the brilliant way God speaks through us from the heavenlies, Psalm 19:1-4:

(1) “God’s splendor is a tale that is told;
his testament is written in the stars.
Space itself speaks his story every day
through the marvels of the heavens.
His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky,
showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship.
(2) Each day gushes out its message to the next,
night with night whispering its knowledge to all.
(3) Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard,
(4) Yet all the world can see its story.
Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know.

Tonight the night sky was amazing and I just had to take a picture with my iPhone SkyView app. Sagittarius was sitting on the Milky Way, with a brilliant waxing moon on his back side. The Moon was in front of Jupiter with Saturn behind them.

SagittariusThe Archer, ‘conquering and to conquer‘. The represents the triumph of the Coming One, Jesus Christ. The ‘half-man – half-horse’ represents His dual nature as Son of Man and Son of God.

Jupiter in Hebrew is Tzedek and means ‘righteousness‘. It is the King Planet and represents Israel.

Saturn in Hebrew is Shabbtai and represents ‘rest’, Shabbat. Saturn is surrounded by 1,000 rings of ice and dust and the planet itself is gas. It represents the beautiful rest our Creator gave us as a gift each week. The Jewish Shabbat, 7th day rest, began Friday night at sundown.

When I went to look at my calendar to see if there was anything special about this date, my calendar said, “Ashura”. I had no idea what that meant so I needed to research this day to see if it had any significance to this beautiful Sign in the Heavens.

This is a Islamic celebration that began this year at sundown August 28 to sundown August 29, 2020. On the Islamic calendar it always falls on the tenth day of the month of Muharram.

Ashura, also known as Yom Ashura, is the day of atonement and mourning for Muslims and marks the day that Moses and the Israelites were saved from Pharaoh by God creating a path in the seas. says this is the date that ‘commemorated as the day that Allah parted the Red Sea for Moses (Musa) and his followers to escape from the pharaoh.’

The Shi’a Muslims see the day as the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram and the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, at the battle of Karbala. Hence, this is a holy day of mourning for the Shi’a Muslims. One of the customs of the believers is ‘self-flagellation’, whipping themselves and shedding blood.

What I see in this day and this sign is protection for Israel. According to, Muharram was one of the four sacred months when fighting was not allowed. This is good in this hour when protests and violence are raging in the streets.

Not everything in the heavenly means something, but when I am out at night and Holy Spirit says “look up”, I know there is something new to learn. And I keep learning. I am a life-time student of the Word of God in the Heavens and in the Bible. (Psalm 19)

This photo was taken from my SkyView app on my iPhone July 26, 2017. I had just come out of Wednesday night church and saw the moon and a bright star. I knew I would find Jupiter and I knew it would be in Virgo. You will notice the moon above her head.

Jupiter 26 2017

Today Jupiter is moving out after 9 1/2 months of being in the constellation Virgo.  This has never happened before. Planets are supposed to follow an orbit, but this “King” planet stayed in one heavenly pattern of the ‘fixed stars’.  Below are a few facts about this ‘wandering star’.

  • The Hebrew name is Tzedek and means ‘righteousness’
  • Jupiter is the largest of all of the planets (wandering stars). It is so big that 1,300 earths could fit inside of it
  • Called the ‘King David planet – historically represents kingship, coronation and birth of kings
  • Also represents Messiah, the Coming King – this planet aligned with Venus to form the “star” the Magi saw, which announced the birth of the King of the Jews (Luke 2)
  • Also represents Israel – according to Jewish tradition, when Jupiter is hit from a heavenly body it represents harm coming to Israel.
  • September 23, 2015 Venus and Jupiter were in conjunction representing the ‘Star of Bethlehem’, that date on the Hebrew calendar was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Virgo will have a heavenly alignment many are calling Revelation 12 Sign in the Heaven September 23, 2017. Not many people were following God’s Signs in the Heavens until Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries found the pattern of the Blood Moon Tetrads. I believe that God sent that as a sign for the Church to start looking up and realize that He still gives us ‘signs in the heavens’. There were signs in the Heavens at Jesus’ birth and there will be signs in the Heavens at His Second Coming. These heavenly bill board signs are coming closer together and bigger!!! God has never changed and Genesis 1:14 is still for today.

August 21st we have The Great American Eclipse, which should be known as the ‘Teshuvah Eclipse’ since it began the 40 days of Repentance on God’s calendar. That same week we had Hurricane Harvey hit South Texas followed by Tropical Storm Harvey. In 5 days Harvey made 3 landfalls, each more deadly than the first. Today, Hurricane Irma is coming towards Florida and the praying Church is speaking to this deadly storm to ‘tone down, break down, go out into the sea’. So far it has gone from a Category 5 to a 3 and we are expecting it to lessen as prayers are lifted up.

Keep looking up- more Signs in the Heavens to come!


Tonight after the Passover Seder I wanted to see where the Full Moon was located. What I saw almost took my breath away because the Word of God came to me from Psalm 85:10, “Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”

Tonight, Passover Eve, we celebrate not only God delivering His covenant people from Egypt, but Jesus taking the sin for us, so we could become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Jupiter (Tzedek) is the orange planet on the right and means “righteousness”. It seems to be kissed by the full moon. The moon has no light in itself, it only has the reflection of the Sun. The Church has no light in itself, only the reflection of Jesus, the Light of the World. Jesus came to bring mercy, not judgment. Mercy and truth came together almost 2000 years ago, to set the captives free. To God be the glory! Shalom, Shalom


Planet Jupiter is normally 484 million miles away from the earth, but for April 7 & April 8, 2017 it will be 415 million miles away. Last night on the local news the weatherman was saying it was 415 miles away! It is not quite that close.

Whenever there is news of Jupiter my ear opens wide to hear what is happening. Here are a few facts about Jupiter.

  • The Hebrew name if Tzedek and means ‘Righteousness
  • Jupiter is the largest of all the planets (wandering stars). It is so big over 1,300 earths could fit inside of it.
  • Called the King David Planet – historically represents kingship, coronations and birth of kings
  • Also represents Messiah, the Coming King
  • Also represents Israel – according to Jewish tradition, when Jupiter is hit from heavenly bodies it represents harm coming to Israel. In 1994, Shoemaker Levi Comet broke into 21 pieces. For 7 days, from July 16-22, a series of 16 fragments from the comet began to bombard the surface of Jupiter. Each impact was stronger than a nuclear bomb, area hit left a crater larger than planet Earth. This happened on the 9th of Av, the most dreaded day on the Hebraic calendar. The secret talks were going on in Oslo, Norway to exchange Israel’s land for peace, “Oslo Accords.”
  • In 3 BC Jupiter was in conjunction with Regulus (king star) in the constellation Leo, considered to represent the Tribe of Judah. This conjunction in the lion would be served as a sign of the birth of a leader.

There are a few reasons that this closeness of Jupiter is speaking to me.

  • Israel will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jerusalem coming back into the hands of the Jews June 7, 1967, which is Iyar 28 on the Hebraic calendar. That converts to May 24, 2017 this year to the Gregorian calendar.
  • Next year will be the 70th Anniversary of the rebirth of the nation of Israel, May 14, 1948. The date on the Hebraic calendar is always Iyar 28, but on the Gregorian calendar it will fall on April 20, 2018.
  • The Rabbis have announced this year to be a Jubilee Year, so everything means something. Israel is surrounded by strong forces that would like to wipe God’s covenant nation off the map. We will see God arise in great strength to fight.

The other reason is a heavenly alignment that began with Jupiter entering into the womb of Virgo November 2016 and will remain close to the womb until 9/9/17. According to my research, that has NEVER happened before. I just snapped this alignment with my iPhone SkyView App. The planet Jupiter is staying close to Virgo’s womb.

Jupiter 4.7.17

Steve Ciocccolanti taught a great message, Woman in Heaven 23 Sept 2017 on YouTube. I highly recommend watching that message. This will be an alignment that has not happened since possibly Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden.  This is the alignment that is spoken of in Revelation 12:1, “And there appeared a great (megas) wonder (semeion, sign) in heaven; a woman (Constellation Virgo) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” No other sign in the Bible is called a ‘great (megas) sign’.

September 23, 2017, 12 stars will crown Virgo- 9 stars of constellation Leo (fixed stars) and 3 wandering stars – Venus, Mercury and Mars. The moon will be at the feet and the Sun will be off the shoulder of Virgo. Joining the moon at the feet of Virgo 9/23/17 will be Comet 67P.

From the first Blood Moon (4/15/2014) of the Tetrad to Feast of Trumpets (9/20-22/2017) is 1260 days, which is the time period spoken of in the Book of Revelation. The first half of the 7 year Tribulation period is 3 1/2 years or, 1260 days.

Jesus told us to ‘watch and pray’, and I am looking up for our redemption draws nigh. Come Lord Jesus!


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)

Leo the LionHydra Crater Corvux

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!

Thursday, July 31st, I had been to a great afternoon prayer meeting. When I got home I was resting on the sofa and felt ‘compelled’ to pick up my iPhone and turn on the SkyView ap. I pointed it west and the photos below are of what I saw. Keep in mind that it was not dark yet, I was in my living room and still I got these clear shots on my iPhone!

July 31 2014 CancerJuly 31 2014 Gemini







What did I see that excited me? First allow me to explain the original Hebraic signs for each wandering and fixed stars involved. There are originally  7 wandering planets (Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Mars). In Creation they formed a heavenly menorah. There were 12 original Constellations (fixed stars) and 36 minor constellations tell our God’s plans for Jesus in the heavenlies.

CANCER- ‘the Crab’

  • The Arabic name is Al Sartan, which means ‘who holds or binds’ and could be understood  in Hebrew  as ‘to bind together’
  • There original stars in Hebrew tell a story of this constellation as being a shelter, hiding place, assembly
  • In the center of the Crab is a cluster of stars called Praesepe, which mean a multitude or offspring. Astronomers call it  ‘The Beehive’.
  • To me this heavenly sign is of the Church– the Church has a heavenly home where they are seated with Christ and yet dwell on this earth. The Crab lives in 2 different elements: water and sand.
  • Cancer and her deacons tell the story of the Church being securely guided and held and it ends with the Rapture (Argo, the Ship)

In The Crab we see 3 of the Wandering Star Planets.

  • The SunChamah, representing the Light, revelation
  • JupiterTzedek, which means righteousness. Jupiter is the largest planet, called the King planet, and represents the nation of Israel, King David, Messiah and Bridegroom.
  • MercuryKochav, the Sun star, Messenger Star. (it is seen to the bottom left of Jupiter above)

GEMINI – ‘The Twins’

  • The Hebrew name is Thaumin, and means ‘united’; the Coptic name is Pi-Mahi, ‘the united, the brotherhood’
  • The Greeks called them Apollo and Hercules. In Latin they were called Castor and Pollux, as in the name of the vessel in which Paul sailed in the Book of Acts.
  • This is a picture of the dual nature of Christ
  • This is also a portrayal of the One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15)

The Twin on the left is holding the Planet Venus!

  • Venus is Nogah in Hebrew and means brightness or brilliance, known as the Morning Star. This planet represents the Bride of the Messiah

So what did I see in this heavenly message? I saw the Church in heavenly places  (Crab- ‘united’) and the light (Sun) shining on the Bridegroom (Jupiter)  to send a message (Mercury)  to the Bride (Venus) , in the One New Man (Gemini) to “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!” (Songs 2:13)

It is time for the Bride to get herself ready. “Arise (kum), shine: for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1)

It’s Harvest Time Church! It’s time for the Third Great Awakening! Time for the virgins to get their lamps ready to meet the Bridegroom! (Matthew 25:1-13)

ORION! My absolute favorite constellation! See blog of 1/8/12, Orion- The Coming Prince. This is the most viewed blog I have written. The heavens declare the glory of the Lord (Ps 19:1) and this January constellation shows that the coming One is not a beast, but a triumphant, glorious Son of Man & Prince of Peace.

I intend to brief you each month as to God’s original intent for each of the Heavenly ‘light holders(ma’owr). The Constellations are ‘fixed stars’ and the planets are ‘wandering stars’.  Almost every star has maintained the same Hebrew name that God gave them in the Beginning.  Psalm 147:4 tells us that “He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.”  Each star has a part in the End Time plans of the Signs in the Heavens so it is a good idea to get familiar with God’s original intent for each star, whether fixed or wandering.

January  2014

The Planet Jupiter will be the highlight of January 2014, appearing larger than normal.  January 5, Jupiter will rise at sunset, and set at sunrise and visible all night long. The Hebrew name for Jupiter is Tzadik, which means righteousness. This planet is the King Planet, representing King David and the nation of Israel.

The constellations in this view all are from the last book of the heavens that ‘declare the glory of the Lord and tell of the full Redemption plan. This set is called “The Redeemer – The Glory That Should Follow”.  I will expound on the main constellations with their decans (smaller constellations) from Top Left:

  • AURIGA- THE SHEPHERD. The Shepherd is gentle to the sheep and fierce to those who come against the sheep, a protector (Isaiah 40:10). Auriga is seated on the Milky Way, holding on his left shoulder a goat, who is clinging to his neck as she looks at the fierce bull.  In his left hand he has 2 little kids (animals), just born, as though crying out in fear.  Jesus wants to assure us that in these end times, He is well able to take care of us. In the midst of fiery wrath God continually extends mercy, mercy, mercy towards His people. Ezekiel 34:22, “therefore I will save My flock, and they shall no longer be a prey; and I will judge between sheep and sheep.” The brightest star in the body of the goat is Alioth (Hebrew) which is a ‘she goat’. In Latin is has the same meaning and is called Capella. [decan of Taurus]
  • TAURUS- THE BULL. The picture is of the bull with his head down, rushing to pierce and destroy his enemies with his sharp horns.   The bulls eye is Al Debaran (Arabic) which means ‘leader’ or ‘governor’
  • GEMINI- THE TWINS. Here we see Jesus in a manifold two-fold  God and man, suffering and glory,    humiliation and triumph.  As man suffering for our salvation.  As God, triumphing in our complete salvation and final victory. The Greeks call this Apollo and Hercules. The Hebrew name is Thaumim, which means ‘united’ (Exodus 26:24, “And they (two boards) shall be coupled together beneath, and they shall be coupled together above the head of it unto one ring: thus shall it be for them both; they shall be for the two corners.”
  • ORION- THE GLORIOUS ONE, THE HUNTER, THE PRINCE.   This shows that the coming One is not a beast, but a triumphant, glorious man & prince. This constellation is brilliant, bright and shows forth Jesus as “The Light of the World”. Orion was originally spelled Oarian, from the Hebrew root word, ohr,   meaning light. A full teaching of Orion is on 1/8/12.  The brightest in the shoulder is named Betelgeus, which means ‘the coming of the branch‘ (Malachi 3:2) This is a star of great size- 700 million miles in diameter, while the earth’s diameter is almost 8,000 miles. The next in brightness is in the foot and called Rigel or Rigol which means ‘the foot that crushes‘. The foot is lifted up, and placed immediately over the head of the enemy, as though in the very act of crushing it. [decan of Taurus]
  • URSA MAJOR- THE GREAT BEAR–  This is the best known of all the constellations and is better known as the Big Dipper.  Job 38:32 (NKJV) “Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs?”  Young’s Translation calls this Aysh, HNV calls it Ayish, several call it Arcturus (Arcturus is a star in the knee of Bootes that is close to both bears) [decan of Cancer]
  • CANIS MINOR- THE LESSER DOG– The Latin name is Procyom and means ‘Redeemer’ [decan of Gemini]
  • CANIS MAJOR-  THE GREATER DOG- SIRIUS– “The Prince”, Orion’s hunting dog. The coming glorious Prince of Princes (Sirius).  The constellation tells of the Prince that will come to rule and reign. As in Lepus it also has mixed messages from cultures.  In the Egyptian planisphere it is called Apes, which means ‘the head’. He is picture as a hawk, ‘caused to come forth’, ‘coming swiftly down’ The Hawk and eagle or both natural enemies of the serpent.  In the Persian planisphere it is pictured as a wolf, and is called Zeeb, which in Hebrew and Arabic also have the same meaning, ‘leader’. The star on the head is the brightest in the whole heavens! It is called Sirius, (Hebrew Sar) ‘the Prince’ as in Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” This is where we get the word ‘Sir’. [decan of Gemini]


May 27 2013 Jupiter-Venus-finder-chart We are in for a treat tonight if the clouds cooperate! Jupiter and Venus are the two brightest planets and are joining together with Mercury for a rare gathering.  Below is a size comparison of the planets.

These three planets are of the original seven planets of the Creation Menorah. The are called ‘inner planets’ and can be seen with the naked eye.

Planet Comparison 2Planet Comparison 1

Triple conjunctions are relatively rare, according to NASA. The last one was in May 2011 and the next one will not occur until October 2015. (Reuters )

October 2015 will follow the last of the 4 back to back blood red moons on Passover and Tabernacles of 2014 and 2015. The last of the Tetrad is scheduled for September 28, 2015.

So what does this triple conjunction mean tonight?

Let’s look at the Hebrew meanings of each of the planets.

  • Jupiter Zedek, means righteousness. Known as the King David Planet, also for the Messiah, represents Israel. The largest planet.
  • VenusNogah, means brightness or brilliance. Known as the Morning Star, represents the Bride of the Messiah. The brightest planet.
  • MercuryKochav, the Sun Star. Closest to the Sun

Now let’s look at where they are located.

  • To the right is Auriga, “The Shepherd”. Auriga is seated on the Milky Way, holding in his left shoulder a goat, who is clinging to his neck as she looks at the fierce bull (Taurus) below Auriga’s feet.
  • Above is Gemini, “The Twins”, representing the two-fold Messiah, ‘God and Man’, ‘Suffering and Glory’, ‘Humiliation as a man and Triumph as Redeemer King’.
  • To the left is a star in Orion called Betelgeuse, which means ‘the coming of the Branch’. It is a red supergiant star on the right shoulder of Orion and is the 9th brightest star in the night sky.

Now let’s look at the history of Sivan 18, which is tonight on the lunar calendar.

  • In the Hebrew year 1656 (2100 BC), Noah’s Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat, as recorded in Genesis 8:4. Though the torrential rains only lasted for 40 days and 40 nights, it would be several months before the waters subsided enough for Noah’s Ark to come to rest, and another several months before the dove returned with an olive branch in its beak — a sign that it was safe to exit the Ark. As symbolized by the rainbow, God promised never to flood the Earth again.

Basically, this will be an OOOOH, AAAAH night to view. Don’t just look with your senses tonight, listen with your heart. The heavens are STILL declaring the glory of the Lord (Ps 19)

For the past week I have had a prompting to watch Jupiter. I looked online to see if there was any new reports regarding this planet but found none.

Why should I watch Jupiter?

  1. Because I am prompted by the Spirit.
  2. Jupiter represents Israel.
  3. I have learned when I am prompted to ‘watch Jupiter’ it is a prompting of Holy Spirit to pray for Israel

Facts about Jupiter:

  • The original Hebrew name for this planet is Tzedek, “the righteous one”.
  • It was one of the original 7 planets that formed a heavenly menorah on the 4th  day of Creation
  • Jupiter is a Roman name, named after their god Jupiter, the ‘sky god’
  • Jupiter is the largest of the planets, also known as  ‘wandering stars’
  • Jupiter is made up of gas
  • Represents King David
  • Represents kingship, coronation and birth of kings
  • According to Jewish tradition, when Jupiter is hit from heavenly bodies it is a sign of the end of the world.

Historically, Jupiter was and is a prophetic sign:

  • Three years before the birth of Moses, Jupiter and Saturn were in conjunction in the constellation Pisces. Josephus, Abarbanel, Eliazar and other historians affirm that Egyptian astronomers interpreted this sign as an indicator that a great man would be born among the Jews.
  • In 3 BC, Jupiter, the planet representing King David, was in conjunction with Regulus, the star of kingship, in the constellation of Leo the lion, considered to represent the tribe of Judah. This conjunction in Leo would be served as a sign of the birth of a leader.
  • September 11, 3 BC, (Tishri 1)  the sun and moon were in such a position in the constellation Virgo. Biblical astronomers put the birth of Jesus on that date because of the signs in the heavens.
  • 1994, Shoemaker Levy Comet 9 broke into 21 pieces and for 7 days began to bombard the surface of Jupiter. Each impact was stronger than a nuclear bomb, with each area affected larger than planet earth. This happened during Tisha B’ AV, the most dreaded day on the Hebrew calendar. This happened the same time that secret talks were going on in Oslo, Norway to exchange Israel’s land for peace. This became known as the ‘Oslo Accords’.
  • July 21, 2009 a giant scar-like blemish appeared in the clouds near Jupiter’s south polar regions. This was the 15th anniversary of the Shoemaker Comet 9 incident with Jupiter.
  • September 20, 2010 Planet Jupiter was the closest to the earth in 47 years. What is the significance? In 1963 President Kennedy intensely pressured Israel to give up their nuclear ‘defense’ program. When President Kennedy was shot Israel was the first suspected of the assassination plot.

Mark 13:33, “Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. (35) “Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming–in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning– (37) “And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

As for me, I will be watching Jupiter and praying for Israel.
