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).

 

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!

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)

 

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.

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)
