(Some Christians believe it will hit the earth in 2029. “Answers in Genesis” has also addressed this question from a scientific perspective. However, I address it here from a prophetic perspective.)
They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: his name in Hebrew is Abaddon (Apophis), and in the Greek tongue he hath the name Apollyon.
The question asked was:
Also what are your thoughts on the coming asteroid Apophis due to impact the earth on April 13, 2029. It’s supposed to be the size I think of 3 football fields.
Some are saying this is “the sign” in the sky before the son of man comes in the clouds in Matthew 24. The asteroid date is also supposedly 3.5 yrs after the feast of tabernacles -the last trump before the herald (sign) before Christ comes (rapture).
My (expanded) response:
Thanks for your question.
I wrote about Apophis in-depth in early 2007. My main point of that article is the timing of the announcement that there was a 2.7 percent chance of Apophis hitting the earth and that this announcement coincided with the great tsunami that killed 300,000 people. The timing of the tsunami at the same time as the ‘asteroid scare’ was a sign of what is to come when an asteroid hits the ocean as foretold in the Bible, (Rev. 8-9).
I also speak about another heavenly sign that occurred at the same time in the constellation of Saggitarius.
“”Apophis is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern on December 25-27, 2004, because initial observations indicated a relatively large probability (up to 2.7%) that it would strike the Earth in 2029. Additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029.”
1,260,000 days from the Exodus in 1446 BC. The day, in turn, symbolized the ‘year’ when Israel entered Egypt 430 years, 1876 BC. An incredible display of numerics and perfect timing!
The Bible code reads: “Did He miss the mark? No!”
A perfect bullseye by Sagittarius, who aims at the scorpion (Scorpio)!
At the same time, the great Tsunami struck (Dec. 26), and also the greatest pulse from a starburst ever recorded by far. A most unusual and powerful event. But in this document, we look at Apophis.
Apep (Apophis) was the god of darkness and chaos in Egypt and was seen as a giant snake, crocodile, serpent, or in later years, in a few cases, like a dragon. (God is bringing the gods of Egypt in judgment again, as he did when the Israelites left Egypt 1260 x 1000 days before this — to the very day!) “
In this article, I mainly write about its meaning numerically and thematically. However, I see it as a warning rather than the real deal, and I have not changed my mind.
As early as a few years ago I briefly refer to Apophis and display a prophetic image of a meteor striking the mountain.
Actually, the Lord has revealed this warning many times.
For example, see the sign of the meteor striking the moon during the blood-moon eclipse an hour after posting a prophetic image of the same. It struck just 21 seconds into totality just after writing and posting images about the lunar eclipse! If this “coincidence” occurred just once then it’s merely a random chance.
However, I have witnessed such signs hundreds of times over the years.
Yet no one paid attention to this sign of the meteor hitting the moon. Why? Because the post also contained a warning to Trump. Most dismissed it and chose the false prophets instead, who told them what they wanted to hear.
I wrote that Trump was being weighed in the balances and would be removed if he did not repent. And so the Church largely ignored this sign and the many other signs like it.
We are on the slippery slope to George Orwell’s dystopian “1984”. It’s a trend picking up speed to make up for lost time.
We harshly judge our forefathers by our transient standards. And the generation to come will censure our generation as “The generation that killed free speech”.
Do the caricatures in Dr. Seuss expose the prejudice of our fathers and grandfathers?
But it’s the present trend of censorship that’s worrisome.
Good old-fashioned book burnings wait at the bottom of the slope. At bottom, the ashes of books long burned by Nazis and communists await. They testify against this arrogant generation who have sinned against the light.
George Orwell’s book “1984” is an interesting date. I frequently write about 2024 as 70 jubilees from 1406 BC, which is “1260 days” from today. (1406 BC is when Israel entered the Promised Land.)
However, this means that “1984” is 70 jubilees” from the Exodus in 1446 BC!
Has God delayed Orwell’s unwitting prophecy by one generation?
Ponder Proverbs 30:11-14. Note the fourth stage that ends in murder (ch. 30).
I live in Canada where thinking for oneself is increasingly a crime.
We sense coming persecution that will include the closure of Bible-believing churches under the pretense of “equality”.
Is it possible that Covid is a blessing in disguise that moves the Church in the direction of small gatherings so as to prepare her for future persecution?
It is hard to stamp out the Church when it is disbanded into small non-public gatherings. Just ask the believers in China, Russia, or Turkey.
To obtain the full blessing, house churches should have leadership that strongly encourages every member to participate, 1Cor. 14:26.
But there is a place for both “old and new wineskins” in the economy of God, that is, meeting in a traditional building (until forcibly stopped), and meeting in houses.
We must mainly see the strategy of God in Covid and only minimally what the devil is up to. Then you will have peace.
Your God reigns!
Suggested video. (My personal view is that we should find ways of obeying government restrictions until clearly incompatible with biblical ordinances. For example, why not break up into small meetings rather than go to prison? There will be plenty of time for that in the coming days!)
And how the catastrophic Texas blackout is timed exquisitely between the two Solar Eclipses that crisscross darkened America
We have been talking about the 70th jubilee for 30 years. In the autumn of 2024, the 70th jubilee occurs and then all that next year is the “year of jubilee’.
Quick recap about the seventy jubilees (Dan. 9)
God commanded that every 49 years “the year of jubilee” must be proclaimed. The jubilees began when Israel entered the Promised Land in 1406 BC. “1406 BC” is the date agreed upon by the majority of Bible-believing scholars and archeologists over the past 50 years and is the date that I have used consistently the past 30 years in literally hundreds of articles.
1407t/6n BC to 2024t/5n = 70 x 49 years (i.e., 70 jubilees).
As I have often said these 30 years, the seven years before and after the 70th jubilee is very important prophetically. I said to “expect many signs and wonders” when this time comes (and now is). Moreover, I also said that these seven years are divided in half, which is 3.5 plus 3.5 years = 7 years.
“3.5 years” equals “1260 days” on the 360-calendar, but which is 1269 or 1299 days on the Jewish lunar calendar. See Rev. 12. And on the Enoch calendar, 3.5 years equals 1274 days. (I.e., 3.5 x 364 days.) God combines all three systems of measuring time as regarding Bible prophecy, as it is written, “In the mouth of two or three witnesses let everything be established,” Matt. 18:16; Gen. 1:14-19.
Over the past 30 years, I often refer the reader to the 360-calendar. It’s the prophetic hub of all calendar systems. Yesterday, February 17th, 2021, was an important day. Yesterday was “1260 days” before that Great Day of the Great Year of Jubilee. Yes, yesterday was 3.5 years exactly before the said “70th jubilee”. (And it was also “129o days” as well. See Daniel 12:11.)
The first chart shows yesterday’s date, that is, “February 17th, 2021, which was “the 1st month, the 1st day” on the 360-calendar. All systems of measuring time are related to the 360-calendar in some way, as explained again and again these 30 years.
The next two charts are 1260 and 1290 days later, (Dan. 12, Rev. 12).
Lunar 3.5 years
Not only was yesterday “1260 days” (and “1290 days”, Dan. 12) unto the 70th jubilee, but it was also BOTH 1269 and 1299 days (i.e., 3.5-year periods on the Jewish lunar calendar) to the Day of Atonement (“7th-month, tenth day”) in 2024 AD. This is the official day when the year of jubilee is announced, Lev. 25:8–13. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jubilee_(biblical)
Enochian 3.5 years (of”364 days”)
Not only that, 3.5 years on the Enoch calendar is 1274 days. (The Enoch calendar always celebrates its holidays, including the New Year, on a Wednesday.)
It happens that yesterday, February 17, 2021, was also a Wednesday. This means that 126o days later, AND 1274 days later are also Wednesdays. As said, “1274 days” is an Enochian 3.5-years.)
Yesterday was not the Enoch New Year, but it was still aligned with the very important “Wednesday”. Moreover, “1274 days” later is the first day of Tabernacles on the 360-calendar! (“the 7th month, 15th day”)
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh monthshall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord. Lev. 23:24
Jubilees are made up of seven Sabbath-Years, that is, seven “seven-year” periods. Therefore, the seven days of Tabernacles are especially important!
Then Moses commanded them: “At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Festival of Tabernacles,when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing. Deut. 31:10-11.
This is something that I have referred to for the past 25 years or so, “symbolic day years”. Just Google that phrase, “symbolic day years” in quotes and you will find numerous articles that I have written. Anyway, February 17th, 2021, is the “symbolic day-year” of 1470 BC (or 1500 BC). And “1470” is 30 jubilees, (30 x 49 years). Technically, the day begins at sunset the previous day, thus as 1471t/1470n BC.
This is more important than you may think, but more information is not always better. Perhaps others, like David Rooke, can discuss this in the comments section at the end of this post?
“In the mouth of two or three witnesses”
As you can see, from February 17th, 2021, all calendars converge in 3.5 years on the 70th jubilee in every way imaginable. This is truly amazing to anyone who has studied the “three-and-a-half” year period of Bible prophecy.
Did anything happen on February 17th, 2021?
Yes, there have been a series of storms, culminating with “February 17th, 2021”. Ironically, it hammered the US on the US’ President’s Day weekend, a warning to Biden and even Trump (the favorite of Texas).
AccuWeather estimates economic impact of winter storms to approach $50 billion (“Feb. 17th, 2021”)
The United States economy, already unstable from the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions, is now taking another hit from an unprecedented coast-to-coast winter storm. Since last week, at least 38 people have died and the winter storms have and left behind immense damage.
The total damage and economic loss caused by the historic storm could be between $45 and $50 billion, AccuWeather Founder and CEO Dr. Joel N. Myers estimates.
To put the economic toll of the storm into context, AccuWeather’s estimate for the entire 2020 hurricane season, the most active hurricane season on record, was $60-65 billion.
Footnote: The Weather Channel named the storm "Uri", which is ironic because of the prominence of that name in the Book of Enoch, as Uriel.
In combination with these unusual storms is the stark transition to Biden from Trump, as well as the coronavirus. It’s a sign of things to come. (Note: “the snowstorm exited the U.S. late on February 16”, Wiki, which is the New Year on the 360-calendar to the very hour.)
Also see my last post, posted on the eveningof February 16th, 2021.
The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months… It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. (Rev. 13:4-7)
Note: “42 months” is the same as “1260 days”.
“Uri”, costliest storm for Texas since record-breaking Hurricane Harvey
Most damages occurred in Texas due to its blackout and frozen pipes. For Texas damages rival the previous record set exactly 3.5 years ago (on both the Jewish and Enoch calendars).
Winter storm damage may rival Hurricane Harvey’s price tag, experts say
Insurance industry executives say they anticipate the price tag for recovery could approach that of Hurricane Harvey in 2017 — which resulted in $19 billion in insured losses in Texas, primarily along the Gulf Coast, and is considered the costliest storm in the state’s history. Austin American-Statesmen
Also, note the stress on the importance of “3.5 years” in the article posted 3.5 years ago about Hurricane Harvey!
An eclipse occurs when the moon passes in front of the sun. Exactly 3.5 years after the eclipse on the Jewish lunarcalendar was Feb. 11, 2021. And 3.5 years after the eclipse on Enoch’s solar calendar (1274 days) was Feb. 15th, 2021. Compare these two dates with this quote from Wikipedia concerning the “power crisis” in Texas.
Seven years after the eclipse another will crisscross America, this time darkening Texas. It will cross Texas exactly “1150 days” from the Feb. 13, 2021, Texas blackout! (“1150” is the same as “2300 evenings and mornings”, Daniel 8:13-14.)
Oil darkens the sea and shore of Israel
Also on Feb. 11th, 2021, (3.5 years on the Jewish calendar after the eclipse), a storm in the Mediterranean Sea caused the worst ecological disaster in Israeli history. An oil spill darkened a strip of the sea and came ashore ten days later.
The Environmental Protection Ministry secured satellite images, dated February 11, of a suspicious black patch on the sea surface some 50 kilometers (31 miles) off the coast… The Times of Israel
The symbolic day-year for “Feb. 11, 2021” (as discussed earlier in this post) symbolizes the year “1476 BC”. This happens to be the Exodus date according to the Jewish Seder Olam Rabbah when adjusted to the true date of the fall 0f Jerusalem in 586 BC as explained a few months ago. (See Key of 23.)
Recall the first of the ten plagues on Egypt in the year of the Exodus, Ex. 7:14-24.
הערב נפלט לוויתן מצוי בדרום שמורת ניצנים. פקח רטג דוד חלפון הגיע לחוף וראה כי מדובר לוויתן מצוי (גור) בגודל 10 מטרים. מנכל רטג: ״אירוע זיהום הזפת מסתבר כאירוע גדול וחמור מאוד עם נזק סביבתי גדול מאוד שייקח לנו זמן רב לטפל בו. קוראים למשרד להגנס לחקור את האירוע ולמצוא את האשמים pic.twitter.com/DAGpESSuXF
2025 AD is the fulcrum and apex of the ages. But as I have repeatedly said for the past 30 years, expect signs and wonders in keeping with Bible prophecy when this time comes (and now it’s here!)
However, and this is important, this does not mean the end has come!
The culmination of the ages is upon us, with 2025 at the bullseye. But like the eye of a hurricane, do not focus just on the eye of the storm. The end times reach beyond the “eye” of the storm. In the same way, the 2025-bullseye does not mean that events around this time are unimportant. Over vast ages, plus or minus 77 years of 2025 also falls within the perimeter of the “2025-bullseye”. And even this does not guarantee the end of the age. One can never put God in a box.
We are now in a birth pang. These pangs began WW1 and WW2.
But look up!
Eventually, those pangs will yield to the birth of a new age when Jesus Christ returns to rule the nations with a rod of iron.
Donald… Humble yourself before God so that prosperity might continue under your leadership.
The above was said one year ago in a post on February 15, 2020. I quote it ahead of what is said next in order to demonstrate that I am not against Trump and that I have always acknowledged the good he did — as well as the evil.
Hopefully, this is the last post about Trump. It has not been easy these many years to proclaim the exact opposite of what 99 percent of the ‘prophets’ say, the majority of which are endorsed by the leadership of the charismatic movement.
(This is why “submission to ecclesiastical authority” is not the answer to the current prophetic confusion, as many suggest. A complete overhaul from head to toe is necessary before “submission” can work, down to the very definition of what New Testament “Church” even looks like.)
Increasingly clear prophecy about Donald Trump over the past ten years
Over the past 10 years, the Lord gave me many prophetic messages about Donald Trump with great signs following. At the end of this short article are the posts during just the past four years about Trump.
Some of the below posts refer to the much earlier articles about a man named “Don” who would arise and be considered by some to be like “king Cyrus”, and that he would be very wealthy. However, the 2011-prophecy said that in the end “Don” would disappoint ‘like a cloud without rain’. He would be a rival of “Hillary”, whom God mocked as ‘hilarious Hillary, just as he mocked the statue of Baal.
The Lord revealed an image of a man “whose name is Don” atop a tall mountain planting the flag of Israel. The mountain was “2300” days/years high. Furthermore, the flag of Israel was moved to the position of overtopping the mountain “2300 letters” from one point in the prophetic picture to another. Remember, all this was way back in 2011 and can easily be verified at “Internet Archive”.
And so it was, “2300 days” later to the day, (around Hanukkah), Donald Trump moved the embassy to Jerusalem, “planting the flag” in Jerusalem, so to speak.
And so forth.
All this happened many years before I even heard of the name “Donald Trump”.
Below is just a sampling of the prophetic images in order to give you some idea of what I mean. However, the purpose of this post is not to go over all this again, but to recap the basic message about Trump in lieu of the madness overtaking God’s people.
Prophetic messages during the Trump Presidency
Below are links to prophetic messages about Trump during the four years of his presidency. The vast majority of Christians rejected everything I said.
The Lord gave me many prophetic words.
Not one word fell to the ground. All came to pass.
What is the truth about Trump revealed over and over again during the past ten years?
The TRUTH was validated by God hundreds of times by signs and wonders. For example, there was the time that an image of a meteor striking the moon atop the mountain (where “Don kneeled”) during a wolf-blood-moon eclipse named after Donald Trump.
One hour later it literally happened and made headlines around the world. (See left image and caption.)
This is the gist of the message revealed over the past ten years about Trump — a message despised and rejected…
Prophetic Messages about Trump Summarized
A ruler would arise name “Don” (and “the son of dawn” Isa. 14:12 ESV), an impish man whom God would remove from power “after four years” unless he repents of his pride.
He would be like king Saul whom God gave in His anger but “removed” in His wrath.
Delusion would come upon God’s people for a time because of their idolatry over this man and for mixing with the world. Jesus is their king and will have no rival. God knows the heart. Most (not all) are like Israel when they chose Saul to lead them rather than God. They will fall for a time in order to be purified.
However, if God’s people do not repent, they are in danger of setting up an antichrist to rule over them in the future, (perhaps even the Antichrist, and his false-prophet son.)
But if they yield to the present ruler (Biden) and bestow due respect, then Biden will treat them well. But if they resist they will bring upon themselves a yoke of iron.
God knows the wickedness of both parties. However, the kingdom of God has nothing to do with either of them. “The whole world lies in the lap of the evil one”, and “the flesh profits nothing”. Remember that! 1 John 5:19; John 6:63.
Stop trusting in Egypt
My friend, stop turning to Egypt for help!
But I will pass judgment on you
because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’
Why do you go about changing your mind so much? You will also be disappointed by Egypt, just as you were disappointed by Assyria…
for the Lord has rejected those you trust;
you will not be helped by them. Jer. 2:35-37
What is the root of the problem?
Teachers who teach that Christians MUST vote rather than leaving this up to the individual and their conscience.
This error is compounded further by leaders who infer as to which party a “real” Christian should vote for, thereby dividing the body of Christ.
The devil is a strategist and has outmaneuvered carnal Christians. You cannot fight against flesh and blood. If you “lay hands” on a man thereby endorsing him, then you partake in his sins and risk his plagues, in this case, “The Plague of the Delusion of Donald Trump”.
Trump is stuck on himself! — Are you stuck on Trump?
Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; Rev. 18:4
What then must we do?
Wait for the King of Heaven to return.
Prophetic words about Trump during the four years of his presidency
At Creation, the planets aligned in the constellation of Virgo (“The Women”) and in Cetus (“The Sea Monster”), the same symbolism found in Revelation 12-13.
“A day for each year” (Ezek. 4)
In order to understand the heavenly signs at Creation one must be familiar with the day-year principle of the Bible.
I wrote articles about Ezekiel 4 in the ’90s. Eventually, this became an entire website. The below chart is from those early articles. This agrees with my approach now to Creation and the heavenly signs.
In the below chart, the seven days that Ezekiel sat overwhelmed (Ezek 3:15) immediately before he laid on his side 430 days “a day for each year” coincides with the EXACT seven years until Jerusalem fell in 586 BC.
Some ancient texts utilize the day-year principle, such as the Book of Jubilees, written before Christ. Jubilees places the fall of Adam exactly seven years after Creation.
The seven-day week of Creation and the seven-day Sabbatical years of the Pentateuch has the same meaning and work the same way, (Exod. 23:10–11, Levit. 25:2–7, 25:20–22 and Deut. 15:1–3). Both are continuous unbroken cycles of seven days and of seven years that began at Creation and confirmed by Moses.
Footnote: The Enochian Calendar also utilizes the day-year principle. See the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch.
The Day-Year principle at Creation
The Bible says that Adam was created on the “6th day” of Creation. (And then God rested on the “7th day”, Gen. 1-2.)
The Bible says that Adam was “130 years of age” when his son Seth was born, (Gen. 5:3).
The question is, How do we integrate the seven-year principle at Creation?
This is how: Because the count of years (i.e., “130 years”) begins at the 6th day of creation (when Adam was created), this means that six days AND six years before this must represent the first ‘day’ of Creation.
Footnote: The six days and years are also inferred in the Book of Jubilees because according to it, Adam sinned in the garden seven years later, which, therefore, is the 13th year from the very first year of creation, (6 + 7 = 13 years).
The coinciding of the seventh and the 13th year at the fall of man signifies 'redemption'. The combination of these two numbers, the seven of perfection and the thirteen of imperfection, are at the root of the Enoch calendar. Moreover, in the chronologies of the Bible, multiples of 7 and 13 repeatedly occur in the SP, LXX, MT, and even NT chronologies. For example, "130 years to Seth", which is 13 x 10, and then "105 to Enosh", which is 7 x 15, and so forth.
I wrote an extensive article about the importance of "multiples of 23 years unto the Exodus or Conquest" in Biblical Chronology. For example, from the Creation in 4114 BC unto the Exodus in 1446 BC are 2668 years (23 x 116). Therefore, the said six years of Creation, plus the '40 years in the wilderness' equals 46, which is 23 x 2. This means that from the "first day" of Creation as in 4120 BC (4114 BC minus six years equals 4120 BC) unto the Conquest in 1406 BC are 23 x 118 years. Thus, the 'seven years' of Creation are "23 x 118 years" apart from the seven-years of the Conquest, and the Conquest is a type of 'new creation'. (Also, see 23 x 178 of LXX.) Much more could be said, but I forbear.
The Six day-years of Creation are 4120 to 4114 BC
As explained in Part One, the straightforward date for Creation (assuming the traditional Exodus date of 1446 BC) puts Creation at 4114 BC. Therefore, six days and six symbolic yearsbefore this puts the start of the first ‘day/year’ of Creation as 4120 BC. Below is the standard Biblical chronology as a point of reference and confirmation.
As we shall next see, astronomical signs as explained in the Book of Revelation grace the sky during this same ‘six years’ of creation. And the exquisite precision of the heavenly signs suggests a divine arrangement, a prophecy written in the stars.
These same stars were likely named by Adam along with the animals (Gen. 2:20). God impressed these names and symbols upon the mind of Adam by His gentle sovereign hand. Thus began a universal language read by all men under the heavens (Ps. 19), later twisted by the serpent, but stars redeemed by the Savior as trophies of His grace, (Eph. 1:10; Dan. 12:3).
The Seven Day-Years of Creation
Observe the symmetrical arrangement at Creation: Three days/years of forming and three days/years of filling that which was formed, (Gen. 1). The grand finale of the first three days of forming is the seed זַרְעֲ-bearing plants. And the grand finale of the last three days of filling is “man”, but more specifically, the Seedזַרְעֲ of Man, which is Christ the Lord, (Gen. 1-3; Gal. 3:16).
As we shall see, this “three-plus-three-year” pattern is outlined by a wonderful astronomical sign. Visible from Eden and Jerusalem, at the hour of the Spring New Moon, Nisan 1st, on the New Years of 4120, 4117, and 4114 BC a wonderful sign occurred in the heavens. It portrayed the first promise found in the Bible:
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seedand her seed. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” …וּבֵיןזַרְעֲךָוּבֵיןזַרְעָהּהוּא… Gen. 3:15. (Ponder Gen. 1:29 with Gen. 3:14.)
We look at this heavenly sign first and after that at the more magnificent planetary alignment as also portrayed in Revelation 12.
Part Three: In three days the head of the serpent is crushed
In Part Three, the heel of the Good Shepherd is pierced by the ruler of the night, but the Shepherd crushes the head of the beast and dragon/serpent. All this is portrayed in the heavens on the specified three days, i.e., on the New Years of 4120, 4117, and 4114 BC, even on the very hour.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (i.e., “the beast”), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev. 13:8; 1Pet. 1:20)
Just to increase your anticipation of Part Three…
After explaining the first sign, we will then discuss the astonishing planetary alignment that occurred on Tammuz 17th, 4117 BC (the year that symbolizes the 4th day of Creation when God created the sun, moon, and stars). Tammuz 17th also happens to be the anniversary of the alignment of a series of catastrophes in the history of Israel, such as the fall of Jerusalem, 589-586 BC, 72 jubilees later!
Below is a 16-second video clip. It shows the eleven heavenly bodies in alignment on “Tammuz 17th”, at Creation, 4117 BC. Seven heavenly bodies are in Virgo (“the Women”) as viewed from the Moon. Four are in the “Sea Monster/Dragon” as viewed from earth, with the 12th, Neptune, under the foot of the “Serpent Wrestler”. (Recall that Judas, the 12th disciple, also went astray.)
At Creation, the planets aligned in the constellation of Virgo (“The Women”) and in Cetus (“The Sea Monster”), the same symbolism found in Revelation 12-13.
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
Although we presently lack perfect astronomical knowledge as to the position of the sun, moon, and stars at creation, (dated according to a literal interpretation of the Bible), such as the exact position of solar eclipses, yet there remains sufficient certainty to recognize that the same symbolism as found in the Book of Revelation was then portrayed in the heavens. This appears to include all of the Book of Revelation and not just chapter 12.
For example, the position of the sun, moon, and stars at creation also portrays Rev. 13 in combination with the prophecy of Genesis 3:14,15. And while the astronomical imagery is not always identical, the similarities are striking, especially when related scriptures are taking into account. (After all, the Book of Revelation is itself a compilation of Old Testament imagery.)
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea… All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. Rev 13:1,8
So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Gen. 3:14,15)
When was the Creation?
Before we begin, the date for creation according to the plain reading of the Bible must be established. Fortunately, this is a simple task. Evangelical scholars now generally accept 1446 BC as the date of the Exodus from Egypt. For 30 years I have also used this date in hundreds of articles. It’s likely the same date used in the notes in your own Bible.
From 1446 BC it is a simple matter to count backward to Creation according to the plain meaning of the Bible. The straightforward date of Creation is the spring of 4114 BC.
The difficulty comes when one combines the New Testament into what would otherwise have been a straightforward chronology. This post does not explain the workings of biblical chronology, which has been discussed many times already. Instead, I passionately ask the “why” question, rather than the “when” question. Why are there several different legitimate approaches to ascertaining the date of Creation? Why would God allow several possibilities? Is He the author of confusion or harmony?
I have always held an eclectic position. What I mean by this is, rather than attempting to find out the “correct date” or “actual date” of creation, instead, allow the Bible to speak for itself. If scripture leads to more than one answer –to more than one date for Creation — so be it!
If we take this approach, a harmony emerges that is far greater than the adoption of any single date for the creation. The whole is greater than its parts, and two or three witnesses to the Messiah are better than one.
How can there be multiple dates for the Creation?
In the earlier post, I explain how the extremely rare alignment of planets in 1953/1951 BC coincides with the death of Noah and the birth of Abraham. The date is based upon the “430 years” spent in Egypt AND Canaan, which is the reading of the SP, and perhaps the LXX and New Testament. About half of chronologers go this route, as did Bishop Usher, for example. The other half of chronologers simply take your Old Testament Bible as is. (Your Bible is based upon the Hebrew Massoretic Text, “MT”).
“The time that the people of Israel lived in Egypt was 430 years.” Exodus 12:40
However, by adding to this verse the extra word, “and-Canaan”, the effect is to cut the span of “430 years in Egypt” symmetrically in half, ie., 215 years.
But which is correct?
Was Israel 215 or 430 years in Egypt?
And the battle between views continues and will continue until we realize that our God is One — One in the sense of Union, the perfect union of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. His creation exhibits this great truth, as does Bible chronology.
At this point, my heart breaks. I weep. I spent 30 years writing hundreds of articles proving that the date of creation is not one or the other, it’s both. But men love to champion sides, not realizing that they are fighting themselves.
The root of the problem is a failure to understand the purpose of the Biblical chronology. It was never about ascertaining what year was the creation. It has always been about the Creator, about Christ. It reveals Jesus, and then to a much lesser extent about ‘how’ He created, and still less, ‘when’.
The New Testament writers understood this. That’s why, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Matthew and Luke left out or added names (such as Kenan) in the chronology of Christ in order to encode truth. Truth is based in fact but is far more than the sum of them. According to Luke, Jesus is the 77th ancestor from Adam, “the Son of God”, but according to Matthew, there are 40 generations from Abraham to Christ, etc. Now that means something! “77” (and 70 from Enoch), and “40” — are recurrent symbolic numbers found throughout the Bible.
Moreover, one genealogy moves forward in time, from the beginning to the end, but the other in reverse order. That, too, reveals something, (Rev. 22:13). The testimonies of Matthew and Luke about Christ complete each other. Their genealogies are harmonious in two ways: they blend well numerically, and both point to Christ.
The approach of Mathew and Luke is the same as the rest of the Bible.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
It’s not a dry scientific textbook.
Stop limiting God by the norms of western civilization!
There are a number of points in time that God draws our attention to as figurative of the Creation. But none of them is the actual date of creation. The Bible is not meant to tell us that. That’s not the objective. The question we should ask is:
How does this or that date for the creation (or the Flood, etc.) point to Christ?
If you ask this question, and only this question, and refuse to bark up the wrong tree, that’s when you see the burning bush!
See! The bush burns and does not go out!
The revelation of Jesus Christ in the numeric of the Bible is higher than any summit and deeper than any bottom; it’s broader than any horizon. It describes a place and time but is not bound by either.
The heavenly constellations bow down at His feet
Heaven and earth are in agreement, they bow before Him.
God has the power to conforms all things to His will. His will is that His Son is declared by all of creation, things seen and unseen — every atom, every cell, every word ever spoken. All things turn and bow at His feet, the sun moon, and stars — including every word spoken against Him, so great is His power.
The constellations in the heavens, so perverted by the pagans, God uses. Their attempt to dethrone Him provokes laughter in heaven! They have no real power. God outwits His enemies ten-thousand chess moves in advance. They are but fuel for the fire, a sink to wash the hands of the saints in, pharaohs to display His power by.
Wake up, saints! Rise and sit enthroned where Christ is. All things are yours. See from His perspective. This is the true role of prophetic ministry — to cause others to see things as they really are.
Your God reigns!
Brethren, this present world — this present chaos — is just a temporary arena wherein God demonstrates His power to beings great and small, visible and invisible. “It is finished!” God rolls up the heavens like a scroll. Then there will be a new heaven and a new earth wherein dwells righteousness. Until then, watch and pray, and give Him glory!
The heavens declare the glory of God! (Psalm 19; )
In Part Two the heavenly signs at creation are examined.
Some verses about constellations and astronomical signs
Astrology robs God of His glory and misdirects it, turning glory into shame. However, the heavens declare the glory of Jesus and His Father will not share His glory with false gods, nor with men. Jesus is the Glory of God, and only “in Him” are His followers glorified.
Matthew 2:1-2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
Who makes the Bear, Orion and the Pleiades,
And the chambers of the south;
“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades,
Or loose the cords of Orion?
He who made the Pleiades and Orion
And changes deep darkness into morning,
Who also darkens day into night…
For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash forth their light;
The sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;15 and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
`There will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And there will be much trouble for the people on earth. They will not know what to do. It will be like the sound of big waves of the sea.
Men will be weak with fear. They will be afraid of the things that will be happening to the world. The powers in the sky will be shaken.
In Part Two the heavenly signs at creation are examined.
Yesterday afternoon I added new information to the post about the “Christmas Star“, which is now forming and will join this winter solstice, Dec. 21, 2020. I added more information about the importance of this conjunction in 1953 BC. This time information was added about the extremely rare planetary alignment that same year. The very first image added was this one as seen below.
Below is the time stamp for when it was uploaded, (EST).
It happens that exactly one hour earlier without knowing it, NASA announced the new name for the military aspect of their Space Force, “The Guardians”. Notice the exact timestamp when this bulletin was released on Twitter and compare images, “4:59 PM · Dec 18, 2020″ (EST). This is exactly one hour earlier than the above similar image.
Today, after a yearlong process that produced hundreds of submissions and research involving space professionals and members of the general public, we can finally share with you the name by which we will be known: Guardians. pic.twitter.com/Tmlff4LKW6
Today, when I noticed this coincidence, I took a second look at the software. The image of the 1953 BC pyramid was its view from the center of the earth. However, this is what it looks like when standing on the earth’s surface. It actually faces up in the same way as the emblem of the “Guardians”. It is a little less symmetrical though.
Below is the seal of the United States Space Force. The Space Force was created 364 days earlier.
Why the sign?
I also realized that the date in 1953 BC for when this formed on the Jewish Calendar was Shebat 23 or 24. This was the anniversary of Zechariah’s eight-night visions (Zechariah 1:7–16). Zechariah had eight dreams in one night.
It so happened that I discussed this same passage briefly with a friend late last night (Dec. 18, 2020). We discussed how the horsemen of the apocalypse are straining to the released. I referred to Zechariah 1:7–16.
Then last night I had a dream. I picked up an ancient book in Japanese from a library. In it were these closeup images of charioteers with their horses straining to advance as if in a race. They were stretched out artistically to give the appearance of motion. There were several images.
In the dream, an Asian man came near me and I asked if the writing was Japanese or Chinese. He said it was Japanese just as I thought. I said, “You can tell because the characters (letters) in Japanese often look like a house. (Here is the actual word for house 家. )
This Asian person was sweating. I put my hand on his sweaty brow. I felt compassion for him. He had Covid. I then tried to find a washroom to wash my hands.
What does it all mean?
Japan symbolizes the furthest ancient eastern nation.
God is angry at the nations at ease, from east to west. They presume they will rule the universe without the King of kings. But the dominion of men and devils is nearly over. The writing is on the wall.
In fear of her torment, they will stand at a distance and cry out: “Woe, woe to the great city, the mighty city of Babylon! For in a one hour your judgment has come.” Rev. 18:10
Compare the east side of the below Mystery Babylon to the 1953 BC image.
This post will be leisurely updated from now until the sign of the “Christmas Star”, which occurs Dec. 21, 2020. The above 1953 BC planetary alignment is directly related to the 2020 “Christmas star”, as explained in this article.
Key texts to ponder: Gen. 49:8-12; Num. 24:15-19; Acts 7
The LXX (Greek) Bible is prominently quoted from in the New Testament. The below chart is based upon Ex. 12:40 in the LXX Bible.
Many scholars are aware of the natural reading and implication of Ex. 12:40 in the LXX Bible, but most just ignore it. People like certainties, this or that, but not both, especially chronologers; they are like accountants who want it to add up the first time. That’s their natural disposition. That’s why they argue with one another about the bottom line. However, it was never about the bottom line, that is, “When was the Creation?” or “When was the Flood?”
The fact is that all are correct. They are simply different branches on one genealogical tree. Each by themselves is like a barren cross on a hill. But when engrafted in becomes a mighty tree. God reconciled all of them upon that cross, Jew and Gentile, Greek and Samaritan, Babylonian and
Egyptian, Esau, and Jacob, even every nation tribe and tongue. This 30-year revelation portends to the near completion of the full number from among the nations that must be saved before God wraps up all things with the inclusion of His “firstborn”.
Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstbornson, and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’ ” (Ex. 4:22-23)
Many put up artificial Christmas trees. This pagan symbol serves well as an illustration. Men insert branch after branch to complete the tree. So it is with the different chronologies. And Israel is the star that awaits to be put on top of the Christmas tree – a symbol used by pagans, yes, but which originally belongs to the Creator, (Hosea 14:8).
Today I begin to reveal what this last branch looks like once engrafted back into the tree. (It was explained already how the other branches fit back into the tree in the post: “Reconciling time with the key of 23″, (October 2, 2020). Ironically, the “minus-33-year-LXX” branch of chronology may well have been the original one!
And why have more than just one branch on a tree?
Because, two lights are brighter than one, and three can hardly be missed in the night sky.
The timing of the “Christmas Star”
Please bear with the following drum roll!
Everything the Lord does is timed exactly. This includes when something is revealed for the first time.
The revelation of what this chronological-branch looks like once engrafted back into its tree is timed to a series of celestial signs. The previous post was about that. However, the main sign is what’s called “The Christmas Star”. It’s when Saturn and Jupiter appear so close to one another that they look like one bright star in the evening sky on Dec. 21, 2020. On that day you can gaze upon this one bright star in the west, thought by some to be the sort of event that marked the actual “star” that led the magi to travel west from Persia towards the Christ-child around 7-1 BC.
It’s big news among the major networks, and especially among those who study this sort of thing, including many cultures and lands. It’s something that last occurred 397 years ago (AD 1623) but likely went unnoticed then due to the glare of the sun.
One must reach back another 397 years to AD 1226 to observe a union as visibly spectacular. However, 1226 was not as striking in this respect: it did not occur on the darkest day of the year — the winter solstice. The winter solstice is traditionally associated with the birth of Christ: The Light of God came into the world on the longest night of the year, at least according to tradition. The Light came 2020 years ago to give 2020-vision to the blind!
As I will demonstrate, the below chart explains the meaning of this sign, even now forming in the heavens that culminate on Dec. 21st. Below is the LXX chart. How it interprets the star will be explained little by little.
This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham: (Matt. 1:1, the first verse of the New Testament)
As well as 1953 BC as discussed shortly, in the above chart 2133, 2033, 1993, 1973, 1933, 1873, and 1853 BC were all (or nearly) Jupiter-Saturn conjunction years. (All are multiples of 20-years apart.)
“397 years” in Egypt
The most obvious parallel to the Dec. 21st “Christmas star” is “397 years”. The previous time the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter was this close was 397 years ago. But 397 years before that time (397 + 397) was even closer. But as said, because it occurs this time on the winter solstice and not far from Dec. 25th, this year is most spectacular.
The last time this rare celestial event, called the “great conjunction,” was observable was March 4, 1226. The gas giants closely aligned in 1623 (July 16), but its proximity to sunset made its visibility unlikely, according to EarthSky. (Tennessean)
If you read what is said about Ex. 12:40 at the top of the above chart, you will notice that the LXX date for when Israel entered Egypt is “1843 BC”. Therefore, the time spent in Egypt according to the LXX was also 397 years.
1843 – 397 years = 1446 BC
Recall the verse quoted by Matthew concerning the wise men and when Joseph was warned in a dream to flee to Egypt. Matthew quotes from Hosea 11:1, “Out of Egypt I called my son”.
And when they (the magi) were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. (Matt. 2:13-16)
Now it happens that Hosea 11:1 “Out of Egypt I called my son” originally in context referred to this very same 397-yearstay of Israel in Egypt as “God’s firstborn son”. Jesus is the fulfillment of this shadow of things to come. Moreover, the genealogy of Luke includes “Kenan” of the LXX, (Luke 3:36-37).
Interestingly, another man by the same name, Joseph, dreamed about 11 stars. His dream was fulfilled when his 11 brothers bowed down to him the same year that they entered Egypt for 397 years, (Gen. 37:9). ‘Coincidentally’, the Joseph story will be read in most all synagogues the very week of Dec. 21st, 2020, when the “star” shines.
Moreover, the Hellenistic Jew, Stephen, utilized the LXX in his speech to the Jews and also refers to a “star” at the time Israel left Egypt, albeit negatively. Stephen appears to refer to this same 397-year period as “400 years” in his speech because from the start of Joseph’s famine until when the tabernacle was set up is exactly 400 years in the LXX. (1845 – 1445 BC, see chart).
6 God spoke to him in this way: ‘For 400 years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated…
11 “Then a famine (1845 BC) struck all Egypt and Canaan, bringing great suffering, and our ancestors could not find food…On their second visit, Joseph told his brothers who he was…15 Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our ancestors died…
42 But God turned away from them and gave them over to the worship of the sun, moon and stars. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets:
“‘Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel? 43 You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek (i.e., “Saturn”) and the star of your god Rephanthe, the idols you made to worship.
44 “Our ancestors had the tabernacle (1445 BC) of the covenant law with them in the wilderness. (Acts 7)
His speech resulted in a martyrdom that sent the gospel to the Gentiles by the mouth of reluctant Saul of Tarsus. The engrafting of the Gentiles into God’s olive tree began that day, (Rom. 11). The date of his sermon was about AD 34 (Wiki).
The Great Saturn-Jupiter conjunction
As you can see, the Great Molek (Saturn) and Jupiter conjunction (when it appears as if one star) occur on 397.25-year cycles. Every 19.85 years Jupiter and Saturn appear in the heavens together, but every 397.3 is especially close. It happens that exactly five cycles of 397.25 years ago was indeed AD 34 when Stephen gave his sermon!
Moreover, there are exactly 100 cycles of 19.85 years between AD 34 and 2020!
(Basically, a “Great Conjuntion” occurs every 20 cycles of 20 years, and now it the year 2020 — Time to have 2020-vision! (See Num. 24:15-17). It’s as if some Great Mind engineered it for our generation! A sign to both Jew and Gentile!)
The times of the engrafting in of the Gentiles are almost over! Time to enter the Ark of Jesus Christ before it’s too late!
From Abraham to Christ and from Christ until now — the engrafting in of Jews and of Gentiles in BC and AD
The Saturn-Jupiter Great Conjunction (“star”) occurs twice in 1953 BC, six months apart, at just .21 (Nisan 7th) and .14 degrees (Elul 22) apart. This is an exceedingly rare event.
Based upon the standard 1446 BC-exodus date, and the “430-year stay in “Egypt and Canaan” (SP, LXX, NT, see Acts 7) as held by half-of all modern Bible chronologists, Noah died on this very same day! (This date is based on the usual “215-year stay in Egypt and another 215 in Canaan, “430 years in all”.)
Also, Abraham was born exactly “two years” later in 1951 BC, (cf., Matt. 2:16).
Moreover, 14 days after the closest union at .14 degrees, Saturn and Jupiter retrograde together from Tishri 7th to Tishri 14, 1953 BC — the year Noah died. (This date could also be the actual day of Noah’s death if the “950 years” that Noah lived is counted inclusive, as in Gen. 8:13; 9:29).
Astonishingly, for 40 days the two cling together less than a quarter of a degree apart, ending Tishri 17th, the anniversary of when the Ark of Noah rested on Mt. Ararat.
Recall that it rained “40 days and nights”!
Did you notice where this conjunction occurred?
Next to Aquarius in Pisces (the bound fish). Pisces has long been associated with the Hebrews in exile. (77 years later, which is the number that symbolizes “forgiveness and redemption”, Abraham is called out of Babylonian and bondage, Matt. 18:22; Gen.12:4-5).
Notice next where this double-star appears again six months later. It appears in Aquarius, precisely where he pours out his jug of water– long associated with the Flood of Noah! (Gen. 7:11-12).
It remains here, over homes and shelters during the Feast Trumpets and Tabernacles. This sign at the time of the death of Noah and the birth of Abraham was a prophecy and foreshadow of what would be fulfilled at the birth of Jesus, and again at his death. Jesus is “the Son of Abraham”, Matt. 1:1, (cf., Rev. 12).
This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham: (Matt. 1:1)
After the Magi had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. (Matt. 2:9)
As said, the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn here occur every 397.25 years. (And within each grand cycle are the inferior 20-year cycles.)
Therefore, five cycles elapsed after this exceedingly rare double-event in 1953 BC (100 smaller cycles) to when Stephen gave his sermon on Tishri, AD 34.
Thus, there are ten cycles from 1953 BC to the 2020 (“Christmas Star”) Great Conjunction, (which is 200 of the lesser cycles). (There are 300 cycles back to Creation, etc.)
All this is yet another sign of the wrapping up of the ages by the ingathering of both Jews and Gentiles into “one new Man” — Jesus Christ.
Bow down before Him!
Get on the ark of Christ before the door shuts!
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
Below is a five-minute Youtube video I put together. It shows the intriguing movement of Jupiter and Saturn in 1953 BC as they twice form the “Christmas star”.
1953 BC Planetary Alignment — Nothing like it before or after
February 27, 1953 BC: A very close alignment of the naked-eye planets took place in which these planets are together in a span of 4.3 degrees. (Wiki)
In the above image, the 1953 BC planetary alignment forms the shape of an Egyptian flail, the symbol of their bondage for “400 years” Gen. 15:13.
Notice that it runs through the asterism of the “Cross”. At 2- 6 au, it instead runs through the asterism called “The False Cross” on the Noah’s Ark (“Argo”) led by the Dove constellation.
The planets stretch from the Ark (Arg0) unto where Aquarius pours out the Flood! The cross on the ark is only “false” in the sense that Jesus the true ark of safety, whereas Noah’s ark was just a type, (1Peter 3:20,21).
The eight planets are also in pairs, just like the “eight” on the Ark. Remember, this is the year Noah died!
Abraham is born 2 years later. In classical thought, all this signals the end of the ‘golden age’ and the start of the ‘silver age’.
Uranus/Neptune Conjunction at Abraham’s birth
It happens that the two outer planets, Uranus and Neptune, reached full conjunction two years later on February 22, 1951 BC, at Abraham’s birth. This outer pair of planets only come together every 171.5 years (of 365 days), (half 7 x 7 x 7 years).
11 stars bow down to Joseph. (Joseph is the 12th star)
Thus the 397-year grand cycle has occurred six times since Stephens sermon: AD 34, 431, 829, 1226, 1623, 2020.
However, the Jupiter-Saturn “star” has appeared 11 times (inclusive) from the time of Noah & Abraham until now. This is similar to the eleven stars that bowed down to Joseph in his dream. However, that number is “12” if you count 1953 BC twice in that the “star” appeared twice in 1953 BC. Joseph is the ’12th star’, symbolic of Christ.
Consequently, it appeared six times in the Old Testament era (“BC”) concerning the Jews and six times in the New Testament era (“AD”) concerning the Gentiles and Jews. The Bible tells us that the Gentiles submitted to Joseph two years after his eleven brothers bowed down, (Gen. 47:13-26).
Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” (Gen. 39:12)
Notice that the “sun and moon” also bow down. It happens that on Dec. 14th, seven days before the Dec. 21st “Christmas star” peaks, a total solar eclipse of the sun occurs.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save (“yasha/יָשַׁע“) his people from their sins.
There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. (Luke 21:25)
Back to the eclipse:
Recall that the eleventh and twelfth time this “star” appears culminates this year, Dec. 21st, 2020 — as the Joseph-story about the 11 stars bowing down is read in the synagogues.
Thus, 1950 years passed from 1953 BC to 3 BC when a similar sign marked the birth of Jesus, and another 1950 years until the birth of Israel as a nation in 1948, 3900 years in all — in agreement with the prophecy of the “390 years” in Ezekiel 4 wherein the Lord bore the sins of Israel.
And from 1953/1 BC to 2020 are 3970 (& 3972). That’s ten times that of the LXX stay in Egypt (397 years) about which the Lord reveals this very week, now, capping off 30 years of study.
The six conjunctions (“stars”) that have appeared every 397 years from 34 to 2020 AD
Click to enlarge any of the below six conjunctions of Saturn and Jupiter (as seen together in the above image).
Notice that 397 years from now (AD 2417), the pattern ends in that the star (scepter) has utterly passed from the feet of Leo. Leo is no longer part of the pattern.
This struggle back and forth between the claws of Cancer and the feet of Leo has been examined many times in past posts, and as always this sign, too, is on the Prophetic Map. (Also read Rev. 12 and see the previous post.)
Every three cycles of 19.861 years the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn occur almost in the same constellation. Every 2622 years (23 x 114 & 69 x 19 x 2) the entirety will rotate around the zodiac back to its original position, (about 957600 days). This creates patterns too complex to explain now.
From Dec 21st, 2020 Great Saturn-Jupiter conjunction minus 2622 years is 603 BC. Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the statue of gold, silver, etc. was also in 603 BC. The dream predicted the kingdoms that would rule until the coming of Christ, (Dan. 2). Therefore, this year marks the soon completion of this dream.
The “19.861-year cycles” of Jupiter and Saturn is almost exactly the fraction of 143/144th of an exact 20 years. “144” (12 x 12) is an extremely important number in the Bible. Perhaps the 19.861-year cycle is “20 years” from the perspective of Saturn and Jupiter; it’s when their ‘clock’ chimes, thereby dividing time into 20-year segments. This would mean that 397 years is 400 years from the perspective of Saturn and Jupiter. (See, 29515 AD pillar to 1446 BC, i.e., 144 x 215 years, which creates a 215-year gap.)
Interesting facts about the planets: Overtime on average the moon overlaps the planet Saturn every 168 days, the planet Venus every 177 days, and the planets Mars and Jupiter every 180 days.
168 is half a priestly year. 177 is half a lunar year. 180 is half a 360-year. Mars is every 162 days and therefore overlaps 180 every nine cycles on average. Moreover, Mars and Jupiter align with Saturn every 2520 days on average (1260 + 1260 days).
