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!

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)
