Signs in the Heavens



SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS

Astronomical Signs by Dr. Stephen Jones  May 26, 2017


On August 21, 2017 the USA is getting its first solar eclipse in 99 years that moves from the West Coast to the East Coast.

This looks strangely like an old prophecy from 30 years ago about a “flaming sword” that was take this same path. I suspect that it will mark the start of the final demise of Mystery Babylon, which we are looking for by the end of 2017.

Another major sign in the heavens is scheduled for September 23, 2017, when the woman (Virgo) appears to give birth to Jupiter (the King’s Planet).

Recall that from 1996-1999, Virgo appeared to give birth to the moon. The moon moved from Virgo’s womb to her feet, which also fulfilled the pattern given in Revelation 12:1, 2.

But in 2017 we seem to be seeing Part 2, where the “child” that was born in 1996-1999 is now returning as “Mars” (warrior) to overthrow Mystery Babylon.


Celestial Fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 and 2  by Dr. Dale Sides at Dr. Dale Blog


Revelation 12:1-2 KJV  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:  (2)  And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Revelation 12 is a puzzle to Bible prophecy students. It appears to have already been fulfilled, yet it also portends a future fulfillment. The solution to this apparent paradox is that both past and future fulfillments are true—as is often the case with other prophetic Scriptures. It was fulfilled (on September 11, 3 bc) and will be fulfilled (on September 23, 2017). The purpose of this post is to discuss this second fulfillment on September 23, 2017.

September 23, 2017, which is Rosh Hashanah, has all the appearances of fulfilling Revelation 12:1–2. (Note: the Jewish standard lists Rosh Hashanah 2017 as being sundown on September 20–sundown September 22; however, the celestial standard begins Rosh Hashanah 2017 with sundown on September 22 when the moon is under Virgo’s feet. In Jewish reckoning, sundown is the start of a new day, so sundown on September 22 would be considered the beginning of September 23rd.) In addition, October 5, which is the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles, appears to fulfill Revelation 12:3–4. These dates of the 2017 Jewish New Year and fall feasts bear the signs of a major occurrence according to both biblical and celestial reckoning. As far as we know, the planet and star alignments found on September 23, 2017 that line up with Revelation 12:1–2 have never before happened in history, nor will they happen again.

Some of the major points that should cause us to take notice of this time are as follows.
·  It is the new moon.
·  September 23, 2017 is the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Shoshana).
·  October 5, 2017 is the Feast of Tabernacles.
·  It could be the culmination of the year of Jubilees.
·  Mercury, Venus, and Mars will be over Virgo’s head, accompanying the nine major stars of Leo, forming the headdress, or crown, of the bride of Christ.
·  Jupiter will be in Virgo, having just retrograded in the womb area, making its descent down the birth canal. This is perhaps one of the most amazing fulfillments of prophecy by Jupiter, the King planet, and it could be the sign that Jupiter (Hebrew name: Tsedeq), is indeed “His Star” that the wise men followed at Messiah’s first coming.

On September 23 of 2017 (September 22, 5:36 pm, Jerusalem time), the sun will be in Virgo, clothing the woman, and the (new) moon will be under her feet, just as Revelation 12:1 prophesies. Just over Virgo’s head will be Mercury, Venus, and Mars along with the 9 major stars of Leo to produce the garland of 12 stars. In addition, Jupiter is in Virgo’s mid-section (the birth canal), depicting an approaching birth—perhaps the Kingdom of Heaven.

I have long suspected from reliable evidence that Jupiter is His Star of Matthew 2:2 and that the Magi (the wise men) followed it when it announced Messiah’s first coming. Jupiter’s Hebrew name is Tsedeq, which means the King of Righteousness. When Yeshua of Nazareth was born on September 11, 3 bc, Jupiter/Tsedeq was retrograding and in triple conjunction with the king star, Regulus (located in the constellation Leo). From our perspective on Earth, it appeared to draw a circle around Regulus. In September 2017, Jupiter/Tsedeq will retrograde in Virgo and be in double conjunction with Spica, the star of the righteous offspring, appearing to draw a circle around it.
                  
This event is every bit as powerful and prophetic as the announcement of Messiah’s first coming. At Messiah’s first coming, Jupiter/Tsedeq, the King planet/His Star, retrograded and appeared to draw a circle around the king star, Regulus, in Leo. In September 2017, Jupiter/Tsedeq will retrograde and appear to draw a circle around Spica, the righteous branch or offspring, which is in Virgo. Regulus and Spica are both the primary stars of Leo and Virgo, respectively. These two constellations are pivotal in Messiah’s story line—Virgo shows His birth and Leo shows His reign—in both comings. That these retrogrades happen around their primary stars is more than quite significant.

The fact that Jupiter is located in Virgo’s birth canal at this time is huge. This could be the announcement of the gathering of the Church (NO – Just the Overcomers) or more likely the catching away of the bride of Christ. Remember that the text of Revelation 12:1–2 mentions the crown of stars. Crowns are biblically used to represent rewards, so the garland of light that will adorn Virgo may be a depiction of the bride’s rewards. Virgo is the woman of the heavens; it can represent the bride of Christ.

Three points of reference are necessary to accurately pinpoint one’s location. If we apply this same principle to accurately decipher these signs, our three points of reference would be the following.

1. The written Scripture
2. The progress of prophecy
3. The forecasted celestial arrangements of September   23–October 5, 2017 (according to the Stellarium computer program)

The Jubilee Year
In addition to the three references just mentioned, we also should consider that Rosh Hashanah 2017 is quite likely the closing of a Jubilee year (if we count the Jubilees of recent Israel from 1916/17 to 1966/1967). If the Jewish year count of 5777 includes the 243 years left out due to intentional text manipulation in the Masoretic text, then we are potentially in the year 6020. Give or take the 20 years, we are at the threshold of the 120th Jubilee of mankind. Some believe that Genesis 6:3 provides the accumulative number of Jubilee years until the end. A Jubilee Year is 50 years long, and Genesis 6:3 states that man’s days will be 120 years; thus, 50 X 120 = 6,000 years.

Genesis 6:3 KJV  And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

It appears that we are truly living during a period of likely biblical end-time happenings. Whether it’s the gathering of the bride of Christ or the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven, the fall feasts days of 2017 will be prophetically fulfilling.
