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.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have not written in my blog for quite awhile, but I feel the need now to encourage more that my local study group to “Watch and Pray” because we are in very prophetic times. But what to ‘watch and pray’ for? That is where most people are unsure. One reason is that most pastors will not teach on End Times. A recent survey showed that 90% of Protestant Preachers have NO expectation that Jesus will return again. For this reason, I am expanding what I have been sharing with my study group on current events and what to watch for- but first I must lay down a spiritual foundation.

GPS stands for “Global Positioning System and works off satellites. CBN News reported April 25, 2019 that the “Earth’s Magnetic North Pole is shifting, prompting fears of a coming global chaos – great concern about weakening of the Earth’s magnetic field, North and South poles could actually flip!” Japan’s 9.0 Pacific earthquake resulting in a tsunami that killed 29,000 shifted Japan and GPS satellites had to be recalculated. At any time an asteroid could wipe out a GPS satellite. 

When you load your destination into the GPS, it will give you directions. But each direction marker does not mean that you have arrived at your destination. It is the same way with “God’s Prophetic Signposts”. God never changes, so He will continue to use what was set in place from Creation as recorded throughout the Bible.

The first ‘Signpost’ that God gave us is found in Genesis 1:14, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years.”

  • Signsowth, distinguishing mark, omen, warning, remembrance – You could say God is the original ‘billboard advertiser’
  • Seasonmoedim, fixed appointed time on God’s calendar (Feasts – Lev 23)
  • Daysyom, referring to marking of specific holy days, days of the week, days of the month
  • Yearsshaneh, marking Jubilees, a revolution of time

Another GPS that we need to watch is God’s calendar because God does not work by the Gregorian calendar that has changed several times and is marked by names of Roman gods. There will be specific markings that fall on the Gregorian calendar that mark time for the nations, but when it is to fall on God’s prophetic timeline, He will use His calendar.

For instance – Jesus died on the cross on the exact same day and hour of the Passover lambs (Lev 23:4-8), He was in the grave and hell during the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Lev 23:8), and when the priests were lifting up the first fruits of barley, Jesus was the first risen from the grave (Lev 23:9-14). Then Jesus was teaching for 40 days to his disciples and was seen by 500 (I Cor 15:6) before He rose into His heavenly seated position. Fifty days after Feast of First Fruits, Acts 2 records on the day and hour of Pentecost (Lev 23:15-23), Holy Spirit came upon the 120 in the upper room and the Church began. There are 3 remaining Feasts that have not been fulfilled and will be fulfilled in the LAST DAYS. I believe  that we are the ‘Last Days Generation’.

  • 2024 is year 6000 since Creation according to Johannes Kepler, who was the founder of modern astronomy. He pinpointed 3977 BC as the year of Creation. Since there is no year “0”, 2024 would be exactly year 6000 since Creation if his biblical calculation are correct.
  • Adam’s 6-day workweek is ending
  • 2 Peter 3:8, a day as a thousand years

I don’t want my posts so long and drawn out, so I will quit here. But watch the posts that  start with GPS – because they will contain help in teaching you how to watch and pray in these exciting, prophetic days we are now experiencing.

Look up, your redemption draws nigh!

 

 

This is Part One of what I think will have 12 programs. The first 2 programs show that God is the Creator of each star and knows them by name. I am laying a foundation that will prove that the heavenlies do not belong to the devil or astrology. Genesis 1:14 show us that this is God’s ideas for ‘signs and seasons’, to keep us in His timing and to alert us of prophetic timing. I hope you enjoy!

Comet LovejoyJanuary 7-9 will be the best viewing for Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2, which some call the New Year Comet. This ‘frozen dirt ball’ will be approximately 44 million miles from the earth, but will be able to be seen with binoculars or even the naked eye.  The comet is named after Amateur astronomer Terry Lovejoy, who discovered this object August 17, 2014, from Brisbane, Australia.

Comets are often seen as a bad omen, appearing years before a major war or natural disaster.  A few examples are of a comet was sited before the Exodus, the first Passover and the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD.  In Natural History, Pliny wrote that it was a “terrible comet…(that) was twisted like a coil, and it was very grim to behold.” Exodus 9:19 records  “So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, so very heavy that there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.” The Jewish Talmud records ‘stones fell in Egypt and were very hot.’ Josephus wrote about a  heavenly appearance resembling a sword in the sky before the destruction of the Temple.

October 2011  Astronomy magazine carried an interesting article on comets. The first paragraph caught my attention, “..This makes them an object of popular fascination and has led to their common association as omens of significant events on Earth. (The destruction of Jerusalem by Roman Emperor Titus and the Norman conquest of England are two famous examples)”  [please remember astronomy is a science, astrology is witchcraft]

God many times will use a comet as a sign of upcoming events. Job 38:22, “Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail(23) Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war?“ (see my post of 9/25/11 and 9/26/11 for history of comets and wars in our time)

Keep looking up! Our redemption is drawing nigh! It is very interesting to have this heavenly appearance in this Shemitah Year.

Heads Up! Another asteroid passes earth tonight.

Tonight’s heavenly viewing is 1998 QE2 and is the size of nine Cruise ships and the size of the Golden Gate Bridge!! Now that’s big!

This asteroid will be pass approximately 3.6  million miles from earth tonight. According to NASA’s Near Earth Object Program will not be this close to earth again for 200 years.

This asteroid has its own moon accompanying it and is 2000 feet wide and spins itself once very 4 hours.

Asteroid-1998-QE2

The last significant asteroid to pass earth was on February 15 of this year. 2012 DA14, as it is known, passed earth 17,200 miles away. Everyone was watching for the asteroid, but no one saw the meteorite that exploded 12 miles above Russia that same day!

Tonight when it passes will be Sivan 23, 5773 on the Hebrew Calendar.  On this day in 355 BCE, Haman’s edict for destroying the Jewish people was overturned. The date is mentioned three times in the Book of Esther, read every year on Purim. On this day in 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed the New York State Regent’s Prayer in public schools, on the grounds that it violated the separation of Church and State. The New York State board of education had approved the following 22-word “nondenominational prayer” for recitation each morning in public schools: “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country.” The board of education believed that the prayer would help students develop good character and good citizenship. Although reciting the prayer was optional for each student, a group of parents objected, and the case went all the way to the Supreme Court. Organizations such as the American Jewish Congress supported the ban — due to centuries of religious persecution, Jews tend to oppose government involvement in religion. One of the most ominous reactions came from the Jesuit publication, America, which warned Jews that their involvement in these cases could incite anti-Semitism in American society. The majority Supreme Court opinion held that “classroom invocation of God’s blessings… is a religious activity.” The dissenting opinion pointed out that each day’s session of the Supreme Court starts with the invocation, “God save the United States and this Honorable Court,” that the Pledge of Allegiance contains the words “one Nation under God,” and that every dollar bill bears the words, “In God we Trust.” (www.aish.com)

To which I say, “In God I Trust!” As the sun goes down and the asteroid comes into view, Shabbat Shalom.

Saturn is one of the original 7 planets that make up the Heavenly Menorah of Creation. Planets are also known as ‘wandering stars’.

Historian Josephus records “God afforded them (Adam, Seth, Enoch) a longer time on account of thier virtue, and the good use they made of it in astronomical and geometric discoveries, which would not be afforded the time of foretelling [periods of the stars] unless they had lived six hundred years; for the great year is completed in that interval.”  (Antiqities 1.3.9) It has been taught through the ages that the 7 planets were in perfect alignment on the 4th day of Creation.

Genesis 1:14-16 tells us, “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. [He made] the stars also.”

Stars come in two categories: (1) Fixed – Constellations (2) Wandering – Planets, Comets, Meteors

Saturn is the Star of this week! Saturn’s name in Hebrew is Shabbtai and means ‘rest’.  All the planets have names that represent the Messiah, Saturn representing “Lord of the Sabbath”. Saturn is the most beautiful planet, beautiful colored with over 1000 rings made of dust and ice surrounding her beauty. NASA will never be able to land on this beautiful planet because it is made up of gas, a spaceship would go right through it.

This week Saturn has been in opposition, meaning that the Sun is on the other side of the earth so our view is awesome. The rings could be seen with the naked eye. http://earthsky.org/tonight/saturn-closest-and-brightest-april-28

This week Saturn is showing us anything but rest! http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/04/30/monster-hurricane-on-saturn-nasa/

COULD SHABBTAI BE GIVING US A SIGN? Yes, I believe it is.

  • Add this to the first naked-eye comet of the Century PanStarrs and I believe the signs in the heavens are speaking for us to ‘look up’. Comets, throughout history, have become known as a bad omen. They often appear several years before a major war or natural disaster.
  • Comet ISON, which will be seen the  best the first day of Hanukkah Nov 28, is expected to be one of the largest, if not the largest, in history.
  • These signs are coming before 2014-2015 back-to-back Blood Red Moons on Passover and Tabernacles!
  • 2015 will also have Solar Eclipses on both of the New Years on the Hebrew Calendar (Nissan and Tishri)
  • Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20 and Rev 6:12 all record before the LORD returns the moon would turn to blood (lunar eclipse) AND the sun to sackcloth (solar eclipse). Not ‘or’, or ‘either’, but AND.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

NOTE: I apologize for not putting the beautiful photos of Saturn at rest and distress. My laptop will be fixed shortly and I can get back to work writing!!  Blessings, Mary
