The Webb Telescope is 100 times more powerful than the Hubble and will be operational in a couple of months. This post is an update on the sign of the Webb Telescope — a sign of greater light and revelation, both into the heavens and about Him who made it.
The knowledge explosion in the natural is parallel to what is going on in the spirit realm, as prophesied in Daniel 9 & 12.

An ancient red dragon
Regardless of how old you think the universe is, the latest discovery by Hubble Telescope is a sign of something very ancient indeed. It took 12.9 billion years (1290 (10^7)) for the light of this red star to reach earth (assuming a constant speed of light), thus we are literally looking back at a distant age before our age, as in the first age of Earendel of Lord of the Rings.
This is what the sign of Earendel means
Jesus will defeat the accursed dragon, so let your heart take courage.
Jesus is truly the bright and morning star.
As Tolkien in Lord of the Rings implied, Eardendel is comparable to John the Baptist. John was a lamp that pointed to the coming Sun, (John 1).
John the Baptist was the evening star, who like Noah marks the end of the first age. But Jesus is both the morning star and the Sun itself. Earendel (John) rejoiced at the coming Sun (Jesus) and Moon (the bride of Christ). And according to Tolkien, apparently, John is the Elijah to come of Rev. 11, although in a figurative sense only.
As in the Lord of the Rings, Eardendel slays the dragon — the first dragon at the end of the first age. (The Bible says that there are seven heads on the dragon — seven hills — seven ages?)
But Christ is the ultimate dragon slayer. He will cast the dragon with all its heads into the lake of fire!
The Hubble Telescope is like John the Baptist in its light-gathering ability. But the coming Webb Telescope is 100 times brighter, yes, 100 times 1000 times brighter (due to gravitational lensing), bright like the morning sun itself!
The 3.5 years (43 months) of Hubble imaging “The Morning Star” reminds us of Dan. 9, 12, and Rev. 10-12, which you can read and ponder on your own. Also note, “1290 days/years”, but with seven additional zeroes! (1290 is also “43 months” of 30 days.)
Moreover, we are in the 490th Shmita, ( i.e., 490 times “seven years”! In Dan. 9:12-15, the final seven years are divided in half.)
We do not know when Jesus will return, but God gives Tolkien signs of His soon return!
See Daniel 12 and Rev. 10-12.
Footnote: The first of the 30 signs after the unsealing of the Curse-Code began in Cetus -- exactly one year before the physical Curse Tablet was discovered on Mt. Ebal when the imaging of Earendel finished. The 1st of 30 signs: "Sea-Dragon comet underfoot and ‘Meteor in Russia like 10 atomic bombs’" (Dec. 16 & 18, 2018)
