Christological Astronomy Facilitators Compensation

I have an exciting announcement to make concerning Christological Astronomy. This has been a long time coming, but we are finally in a position to help liberate the ministries of those who are serious students of this subject. We are initiating a trial remuneration program for our certified facilitators who are introducing CA profiles to people from our website at http://astronomy.lmci.org. We believe that the generous remuneration from this apostolic program could potentially finance ministries in many places globally.

Several years ago, the Lord spoke this word to me: “If you can figure out how to maintain integrity within the Christological profile interpretations and pay the facilitators, this will burst into flames.” We are ready to do this now and I am excited to see this word being fulfilled. 

As we have prepared the website and trained facilitators, both in the US and abroad, we have been steadily working toward this remuneration program. We are especially excited to see what it will avail in India where people are addicted to the lies of astrologers and also in Brazil where people have not been poisoned against celestial truth. If we can manage this well, it could possibly help to lead millions to the Lord. Until now, I have been hesitant to release this in India because we needed a plan in place to help disciple those who are won to the Lord. I believe we now have that.  

About 30 individuals have completed the basic Christological Astronomy discipleship training study on our website at http://www.lmci.org/LMDPcurriculum.pdf. Several will be selected to initiate this trial remuneration program, with the hope and faith that this will eventually yield many more “destiny coaches” who will desire the same training and certification.

This new paradigm of ministry has the potential of opening up opportunities for those who desire to help others realize their God-given destinies. Christological Astronomy is the most prophetically rich environment I know of; if we can strip the shackles of prejudice off, the truth will brilliantly shine. A prophetic word was spoken over me that CA would first be rejected in the US, but that other countries who receive it would make the US jealous. Watch what happens. We are poised for a revolution. We are going on a fishing expedition (for people) in heretofore unexplored territory where the devil has posted the stream. Christological Astronomy is the right bait for this stream, perfect for New-Agers, Hindus, and Muslims—and even some lukewarm Christians.

I am excited about training our facilitators and helping them realize the huge blessing it will be to do this. This training will include new webcasts and other special items, so don’t forget to go to our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClX29EzP-87tNyD9a3XUgnA to see what we have already posted and to keep checking it for new posts. You will find everything there you need to know to enter into this exciting new ministry.

We are looking for seasoned, prophetically-gifted individuals who desire to be destiny coaches. If this is you, please contact us at www.lmci.org  and we will give you the specifics.

THE RETROGRADES OF MARS AND JUPITER IN THE WOMB OF VIRGO

We are living in an exciting time of potential fulfillment of biblical prophecy! A correspondence in time plus an array of heavenly happenings are converging to point to the second coming of Messiah. Retrogrades of Mars and Jupiter in the womb of Virgo exactly 1260 days apart scream of prophetic fulfillment. Who is watching?

There are exactly 1260 days between the first of the 2014/2015 tetrad eclipses (April 14, 2014) and the coming celestial event of September 23, 2017, the possible fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 and 2. Some “stellar fellows” have suggested that this period may correspond with the first three-and-a-half years of the Great Tribulation. Although that doesn’t appear to be the case, it still can’t help but arrest our attention that the length of time is the same. Besides this happenstance, there appears to be celestial evidence of Messiah’s coming in both the Mars retrograde of April 2014 (during the first lunar eclipse) and the Jupiter retrograde that is presently occurring (from May–September 2017). The one that is happening right now is encircling Virgo’s womb area, just as the one in April 2014 did. This prophetically speaks of a birth, or coming, of Messiah as the Warrior and as the King.

A retrograde is actually an optical illusion that occurs when you look at the background of an object moving in the same direction as you overtake it at a faster speed. Looking at the background behind the object being passed by makes it appears the item is moving backwards for a short time but then begins to move forward again (according to the background). As we watch a planet doing this, over time, it appears to be slowly drawing a circle in the sky. This is called a retrograde.

 What the planet encircles, as well as the timing of it, signifies the importance of the event and the message. Reading retrogrades is a great (and little known) key to interpreting the heavens.

The astounding fact that I am reporting is that both the Mars and the Jupiter retrogrades occurred in the identical place in the heavens—encircling the womb of Virgo. The following two screen shots from Stellarium document this.





Mars Retrograde: February – July 2014



Jupiter Retrograde: May – September 2017

What is This Saying?

It’s rare that two planets would retrograde in the same location at any time, much less at such a pivotal time in history and within the prophetic time of 1260 days. This is truly a wonder and sign in the heavens that could quite possibly indicate that the Messiah is coming soon and that the kingdom of heaven is about to be birthed on Earth. Both planets in these retrogrades are Christological representations of Jesus—Mars represents Him as the warrior who defeats Satan; and Jupiter is the King planet that declares the coming of the King. We are way past “coincidence” in the celestial anomalies that are continuing to occur—I believe we are fully into the announcement of Messiah’s second coming.

Mars the Warrior

Mars’ Hebrew name is Madim, which means “the red one.” Christologically, this represents the color of blood and, hence, warfare. Christ the Warrior will certainly be seen in His second coming as Lord of hosts and head of God’s army (Revelation 19:11–15). The Mars retrograde testified in living color at the 2014 spring feast of Passover during the blood moon eclipse that the warrior was on His way. I remember seeing it vividly, especially as the moon grew darker. In plain sight, Madim was saying, “the warrior is coming soon and He will throw down Satan and bring peace and order to the world.”

Stargazers and sky watchers have been dazzled by the tetrad eclipses of the last few years, and I’m sure the total solar eclipse this August will dazzle us as well—but who takes notice of where in the heavens they happen? During the first lunar eclipse of the four tetrads when the moon darkened and turned to blood, Mars was encircling the star Spica in a position relative to Virgo’s womb. This said, “I am coming again to fight for my people and to throw down Satan.” (This is prophesied in Revelation 12 where there is war in heaven.)

Make no mistake—when the Lord returns, He will not be looking to negotiate. And every knee will bow.

Jupiter the King

Jupiter’s Hebrew name is Tsedeq and it means “the King of righteousness.” The largest of all the planets in our solar system, Jupiter is named after the head god of the Roman pantheon where he is referenced as “King of the gods.” (He is the equivalent of Zeus, the “King of the gods” in Greek mythology.) The planet Jupitier, or Tsedeq, is the likely candidate for the star (“His star”) that the wise men followed to the location of the young child Yeshua in Nazareth.

Note: Since we haven’t crucified any sacred cows lately, we may as well throw one in here: Jesus was in Nazareth when the wise men found Him. What the magi referred to as “His star” has been erroneously referenced as “the star of Bethlehem” for ages, although Jesus was actually in Nazareth when the wise men came. Luke 2:39 says that Mary, Joseph, and Jesus went back to Nazareth immediately after they fulfilled the law at the birth. The wise men followed Jupiter to Nazareth over a year later. The more appropriate name would be the Star of Nazareth.

Jupiter was retrograding around the star Regulus at the first birth of Messiah, and it is presently retrograding around Spica in the womb of Virgo announcing the King is coming again.


Conclusion

Even though it doesn’t appear as if we are living in the first three-and-a-half years of the Great Tribulation, it still seems more than coincidental that it is exactly 1260 days between the Mars retrograde of April 2014 and the celestial event due to occur on September 23, 2017. On that date, Jupiter will be retrograding in the same place, which appears to be a fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 and 2. The timing of these two similar retrogrades by two planets that represent Jesus certainly seems to be announcing the coming of Yeshua the Warrior and Yeshua the King. (Could this possibly mean He will actually set foot on Mt. Olivet in the next 1260-day period?)

I have been watching the heavens faithfully for over 20 years and believe that all the signs are pointing to the second coming of the Messiah. All these signs have concurred on two strong messages—Satan will be cast down and the King will come! That is exactly the message of these two retrogrades in the womb of Virgo, occurring exactly 1260 days apart.

Christ the Warrior is coming and Christ the King is coming.

Trim your lamps and get ready. The Spirit and the bride say come. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus.

THE CELESTIAL PHENOMENON AT THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS OF NAZARETH

Too many “coincidences” surround the “Mystery Man” from Nazareth for Him to not be the promised Messiah. His story is written in the heavens, and the secret code to revealing its prophecies and images is to view them Christologically—to see that they are showing the timeline of Messiah’s coming, His sacrifice, His resurrection, and His return to establish the Kingdom of God. The record of
His star in Matthew 2, along with other Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled at that time, should be enough to validate this claim. Additionally, the book of Revelation reveals heavenly signs that point to His second coming, the coming of the Son of Man.

Although there are theologians and scholars who have acknowledged these truths, the celestial phenomenon that remains basically unnoticed and overlooked is the one that occurred at the time of His death upon the cross.   

As we look at this celestial occurrence during the crucifixion, we will see that it should be incredibly interesting to those who study God’s celestial Word because it is an astronomical phenomenon that defies normal scientific explanation. On Passover at the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth, a three-hour solar eclipse occurred over all the face of the earth. That should have been enough to testify to the world that the Messiah had been killed.

The celestial phenomenon of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ was a three-hour solar eclipse.

There are some serious questions to consider upon a closer examination of this celestial event—a solar eclipse of the ages—a very significant event indeed.

First, solar eclipses happen only on new moons. Passover is always on a full moon (14th day of the first month, Leviticus 23:5).  On this day, which fell perhaps on the 28th of April ad 28, there was a full moon. This scenario defies description from modern-day astronomy because solar eclipses are caused by the moon passing between the Sun and Earth and casting a shadow on the earth. On this day, the moon was exactly on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun and could in NO way have eclipsed the Sun.

Second, solar eclipses are normally a maximum of 7½ minutes long. Three Bible records, along with other secular records, agree that this particular solar eclipse lasted for three hours, which is impossible according to modern-day astronomical laws and understanding. Regardless, the biblical record states that it remained dark upon the whole earth for three hours.

Third, a conventional solar eclipse only sweeps across a small swath of the Earth, moving in a west-to-east direction. These same three biblical accounts report that the eclipse covered all the face of the Earth.

Therefore, this is a phenomenon—something that is way outside of the ordinary. Isn’t it amazing that God Almighty had this date and event in His mind before the creation of the world when He plotted out the courses of the planets, the Sun, and the Moon. He knew who the Messiah would be and marked Him by celestial signs at His birth and at His crucifixion.

Another issue at stake here is that in many people’s belief systems the Bible is infallible. So, if there is no plausible explanation, then science will fault the Bible. In this case, we have three different gospel accounts verified by three different sources. I’ve heard Bible teachers rant about three days and three nights; well, here is another rant: a three-hour solar eclipse happening on a full moon. Hello Houston, now we really have a problem. Call out the astronomers, astrophysicists, NASA scientists, including Dr. Folkner, and Pat Gleason (the mathematician, cyber engineer, and astronomer who designed our computer program). This is not possible! We are looking for answers.

In the mouth of two or three witnesses, truth is established (2 Corinthians 13:1); and in this case, three separate people describe this phenomenon and its impact.

Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. Now when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!” ~Matthew 27:45, 51, and 54

Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. Now when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!” ~Mark 15:33 and 38–39

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!” ~Luke 23:44–45 and 47

The sixth hour is 12 noon, and the ninth hour is 3 pm.  So, the eclipse started at noon and ended at 3 pm. Notice also that in each account, there is seismic activity and a Roman centurion confessing Jesus as Messiah. Jesus died at 3 pm, precisely when the eclipse ended. This was an amazing event.


What Caused the Eclipse?

So, what caused this eclipse if it wasn’t the Moon? We have seen that all three biblical accounts record that there were earthquakes so powerful that the veil of the temple, which was about three feet thick, was torn from top to bottom.

In ratiocination (the practice of deductive logic), if you rule out all the possible causes, then there must exist other seemingly impossible reasons to explain the phenomenon. There appears to be no “normal” answer in our contemporary wisdom and knowledge of astronomy. We can rule out the moon causing the eclipse, because it was on the other side of the Earth and could not have caused it. Also, the time lapse of the eclipse was way too long for it to be caused by the Moon. Additionally, all three biblical testimonies declare that it covered “all the land” (one even states, “all the earth”). This was no ordinary eclipse, and there is an indication from this description that the Earth was in the shadow of something that passed between it and the Sun.

The only explainable premise is that this shadow, or eclipse, had to be caused by an unidentified celestial object (UCO) that passed between the Sun and the Earth. The object would obviously be larger than the Earth since its shadow covered the whole Earth for three hours. Deductively, an object that large and that close to the Earth could certainly have caused a gravitational pull that was the impetus for the seismic activity.

Science does not provide an answer to this event, so either the Bible is wrong or we must look to the “impossible” solution—this was caused by a UCO. We could just explain it away by stating, “God put His hand over the Earth when this happened.” However, this is not Vacation Bible School—something caused it, just as something caused the parting of the Red Sea, the hail fire and brimstone of Sodom and Gomorrah, Joshua’s long day, and Hezekiah’s sundial moving backwards. Perhaps this was the personification of God’s hand over the Earth, but He caused it by natural phenomenon. Israel was almost immediately devastated and even now is struggling to recover the blow dealt them for killing His Son. There is a greater explanation to this than God putting His hand over the earth.

It is both—the UCO and the hand of God—sending a foreboding message, as the eclipse covered the whole earth, that His Son had been killed. In all likelihood, this UCO was a mysterious asteroid or planetoid system passing by.

This is of interest to us for three reasons.

First, this was the crucifixion of Yeshua of Nazareth, the Lord of Glory. God Almighty marked His death with a major celestial sign just as Messiah’s first birth was marked. These are indicators to help us accept the person who is the chosen Messiah and Redeemer of mankind. This should not be swept under the rug simply because we cannot explain it. It is another major sign marking the identity of the Messiah. 

Second, I know that within the Great Tribulation and the second coming of Messiah many celestial phenomena will occur too, and I am looking for His coming. The Bible reveals celestial, cosmic phenomena like the sky receding and every mountain and island being moved out of its place (Revelation 6:14), something that resembles a great flaming mountain being thrown into the sea, a third of the sea becoming blood, a third of the sea creatures dying, and a third of the ships being destroyed (Revelation 8:8), and a great burning star falling from heaven into a third of the rivers, affecting the springs of water (Revelation 8:10). This three-hour solar eclipse plausibly occurred at the death of Yeshua, and perhaps a similar signal will show us his second coming.

Third, I would be remiss if I did not at least mention the existence of another planet or system in our solar system. I have taught this in my Christological astronomy class for almost eight years. I know that there is activity happening in our solar system that is not confined to the Sun and Moon and our nine planets. I learned it from the Bible in questing for the Christology of the planets. Secular sources refer to this celestial phenomenon as Niburu or Planet X. I am greatly interested in it perhaps fulfilling Revelation 12 in the coming fall feasts, as the heavens move through their cycles and circles. This could be the answer to the three-hour solar eclipse and the celestial events of the Great Tribulation.

Deductively, the crucifixion of Yeshua of Nazareth was marked by a celestial sphere eclipsing the whole Earth for three hours. In other words, something came between the Earth and the Sun. These kind of rare happenings offer some other explanation for certain incidents in the Bible that science can’t explain—like hail fire and brimstone at Sodom and Gomorrah, or the parting of the Red Sea, or the Sun and Moon standing still for Joshua, or Hezekiah’s sundial going backward. And there are more. This account in Amos will take your breath away because it sounds exactly like what happened on the day of the crucifixion.

“And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God, “That I will make the sun go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in broad daylight.” ~Amos 8:9

When I saw this verse recently, it stunned me because it typifies exactly what happened at the time of the crucifixion. Amos prophesied that the Sun would go dark at noon and the Earth would be darkened. Even in a total solar eclipse, which lasts at the most 7½ minutes, the Earth does not get fully darkened. Some believe that this prophecy was fulfilled at the earthquake that occurred during King Uzziah’s reign over Judah (Zechariah 14:5–6). If that were so, then there were two days when this occurred, making Yeshua’s crucifixion event a double fulfillment of this prophecy. I believe that Amos 8:9 is significant within the pattern of what long eclipses and earthquakes portend for Israel. It is not good news for them, but God brings judgment for the purpose of repentance and, ultimately, for reconciliation.


Sun and Moon Eclipsed Simultaneously

On the occasion of a three-hour solar eclipse, the Moon would not appear as having light, since it would not be able to reflect the Sun (regardless of its location). These incidents where neither the Sun nor the Moon have light are prophesied by Joel in 2:10, 31, and 3:15.

I was deeply interested in the tetrad eclipses of 2014 and 2015, and they were significant signs of the coming kingdom of Messiah on Earth, just as the signs in the fall of 2017 will be. Yet they did not fulfill the prophecies of Joel because the eclipses and darkenings of the Sun and Moon that Joel spoke of are simultaneous—just as what happened on the day of the crucifixion. So there was both a solar and a lunar eclipse on that day.

If the Sun goes dark, and covers all the face of the Earth for three hours, at night time on the other side of the earth, the Moon will be eclipsed and appear blood-red because of the shadow of Earth’s atmosphere. Look at what Joel says about this.

The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble; the sun and moon grow dark, and the stars diminish their brightness. ~Joel 2:10

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. ~Joel 2:31

A solar and lunar eclipse happened simultaneously at the crucifixion. You would think that a three-hour solar eclipse would have been enough of a sign, but Yahweh made sure that the people on the other side of Earth would see it too through the eclipsing of the Moon. These simultaneous solar and lunar eclipse have happened before, and they will happen again.

I am deducing that the sign of the coming of the Son of Man (Luke 21:25–27) will be another simultaneous eclipse of the Sun and Moon. Furthermore, the prophecies of Revelation 12:1-4 indicate that this sign may occur in the fall of 2017.


What Did the Eclipse Say When He Was Crucified?

An eclipse was visible around the world, either solar or lunar—sending out a message for all to see. It was a sad day. The world had rejected and killed the Redeemer, the promised Messiah, and God’s Son. Earthquakes shook the ground and events of such a degree that the Roman centurion accepted Yeshua as the Son of God.

This is how the heavens would have appeared that day of Passover ad 28.




On Passover, in April of the supposed year of ad 28, the Sun was located firmly in the very heart of Taurus, the sacrificial bull. (This occurred before the precession of the equinox took place and moved the placement of the constellations. Within the last 2,000 years, the Sun has been positioned in Aries during April.) This was a strong message for those with eyes to see. From Jerusalem, the site of the crucifixion, the eclipse began at 12 noon and ended at 3 pm.

With the darkness from the solar eclipse, the heavens would have been visible. The whole show was in Taurus, the sacrificial bull who was being slain—simultaneously.

When an eclipse occurs, what is being covered up in the heavens is significant and should be noted. In this instance, not only was the Sun located in the constellation of Taurus, the sacrificial bull, it was also eclipsing the Pleiades cluster of stars, often call the Seven Sisters. These are huge Christological messages.

In Christological astronomy, the Pleiades means the accumulation or congregation of the saints.  It is commonly known as the Seven Sisters located in the shoulder of Taurus but symbolically means the place of the accumulated, departed, righteous dead. At the time that Yeshua was being crucified, the saints in Abraham’s bosom were about to get transported to paradise and this is what the eclipse was saying. The blood of the bull was shed for the forgiveness of sins of the priesthood (Exodus 29:10) and his sacrifice was being announced to the whole world by the eclipsing residing in the constellation of Taurus. And it was a sign of the redemption being paid to release all the souls in hell in Abraham’s bosom that were being taken out of hell, which is where Abraham’s bosom was, and being transported into paradise.

For years, I’ve wondered about the verses in Matthew 27 about many getting out of their graves. Now I know—it was the validation of the solar eclipse’s message to righteous Israel: they would be saved if they embraced the Messiah. The raising of the dead out of Abraham’s bosom was a great accomplishment for the Lord and one of the main reasons He came to Earth.

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. ~Matthew 27:52–53

As the Sun was also eclipsing the Pleiades, the message was being broadcast around the world that Jesus was going into hell to rescues His brethren. Ephesians 4:8–10 tells us what Jesus did.

Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men.” (Now this, “He ascended” --  what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) ~Ephesians 4:8–10

So, the three-hour simultaneous solar/lunar eclipse signified Messiah’s death and also told the story of redemption. Jesus did not die only to save those of us who would come in the future—He also came to rescue those who were in Abraham’s bosom and take them to Paradise.

This is the beautiful, redemptive message of the three-hour solar eclipse.  


Conclusion

This amazing truth has been in the Bible waiting to be discovered. The fact remains, according to biblical and historical dating of earthquakes and other geophysical happenings at that time, that there was a celestial phenomenon that caused the solar eclipse on the Passover of the crucifixion. Even though this blog has focused on the cause of that eclipse, the greater significance lies within the message that it communicated to the whole world.

God Almighty marked Jesus of Nazareth as the promised Messiah by signs in the heavens—in His birth and in His death; and He will do the same in His second coming. What an amazing truth to realize that God so publicly identified the Messiah within His celestial cathedral. Now that an additional sign of the solar eclipse has been added, we should all conclude that Yeshua of Nazareth is the Messiah and Savior of the world.  He is the light of the world and we are looking for His coming and the sign of the coming of the Son of Man.

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. ~Luke 21:27–28

CHRISTOLOGICAL ASTRONOMY UPDATE


This March 2017 Christological Astronomy Update will first cover some necessary business items, but then we will get into the meat of the matter—the significant celestial event of this coming fall. Every aspiring magi needs to be aware of what will be happening in the heavens in just a few months and to understand its potential relevance. ~Dr. Dale


Christological Astronomy YouTube Channel

Our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClX29EzP-87tNyD9a3XUgnA is up and running for those seeking increased knowledge and understanding of Christological astronomy (CA). We have decided for now to make it accessible to anyone around the globe who wants to study this exciting field. The channel includes an introductory CA video clip that can help people access and understand their profiles and a foundational CA class on interpreting celestial profiles. With this knowledge, you can learn how to do Christological profiles—your own and as many others as needed. (I am also in the process of putting a book together so that people can do their profiles without the help of a computer.) Other videos on this site include advanced teachings that delve into the deeper studies of decans.

In order to officially name our channel we need at least 500 subscribers, so please register and invite all your “stellar” friends to register too! Advertise us by displaying our link on your social media sites and share it with those in your spheres of influence. A lot of hours of hard work have gone into this effort to help people around the world, so please check it out and sign up so that we can establish an official name for the site. We believe it could be an influential tool to reach the millennials and the younger generations with a knowledge of the glory of God.



New YouTube Class on the Decans

The new class on decans is an exciting study into the deeper meanings of the minor constellations.  Each major constellation of the Mazzaroth has three minor amplifiers (associated constellations called “decans”) that give it greater meaning and significance. This class is on how to Christologically interpret these decans and apply those interpretations in a practical way to live like the Messiah here on earth. The information on these 36 minor constellations is a major portion of Level 3 on astronomy.lmci.org and is now required knowledge for certification as a facilitator. (The facilitator’s training has been recently updated to include this class, and a new e-book will soon be posted at LMCI.org.)


Christological Astronomy Website

Our Christological Astronomy website at http://astronomy.lmci.org is an amazing witnessing tool. Please check it out and register to get a password so that you can do profiles for yourself and others. We are still working toward the app, but until then, you can save this link and the YouTube channel link on your phone or tablet and use either or both when you are witnessing to people. Our astronomy program is being touted in astronomical circles as a great addition to the field and a resource for many researchers. We also want to get more astrologers to look at it so they can have the necessary instruction to correct the common dating errors of traditional astrology. Our goal is to introduce astrologers to the true Astrologos in the process.


Revelation 12:1 and 2—“The Meat of the Matter” (Part 1)

We are privileged to be living during this time when the heavens are announcing the Lord’s coming! I have been tracking these announcements for over 20 years and am excited to see how the signs are increasing in their intensity and impact. According to computer projections, we are heading toward a big crescendo during the Jewish fall feasts this year, with a major sign occurring on September 23rd—just a few months away!  

Note: See http://drdaleblog.blogspot.com/2016/07/celestial-fulfillment-of-revelation-121.html for my blog posting that deals specifically with the celestial fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 and 2. In that posting, I promised a follow-up on verses 3 and 4, which you will find a portion of at the end of this posting.

The understanding of what will occur this fall is progressive as the research deepens and details keep pouring in. We can speculate on some possible meanings, but textually, Revelation 12:1 and 2 must happen simultaneously with verses 3 and 4. When this happens, the war in heaven will be triggered.

According to astronomical research, this particular celestial arrangement has never occurred during mankind’s history and will not likely happen again according to the longest computer projections. However, there was a similar occurrence on August 5, 3915 bc which may have been the pattern of this prophecy’s fulfillment. (See an amazing revelation about this on a YouTube channel called “September 23, 2017—Part 1: The Revelation 12 Sign – Unlocking Daniel’s Sealed Prophecies,” which is part of a series entitled “God’s Roadmap to the End.”)
Chapter 12 is a major marker in the book of Revelation and, hence, it is a major tribulation prophecy. Exactly what will happen and what the message in the heavens is telling us is open for discussion, but that it is going to happen is not. God made this “clock” in the heavens and it really is the only accurate timepiece we have. It is absolute, and God has told us that the alarm will go off this fall.

This is biblical prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes.

The arrangement of the Sun, Moon, and planets on September 23, 2017 seems so accurately described in these verses that it is basically impossible for this to not be their prophetic fulfillment. It appears that John the Apostle was transported into the future during the end days and shown this celestial configuration. Although it is exciting to see the fulfillment of this, there are obviously some cautions that go along with it since it is plausible that it will be the beginning of the Great Tribulation. I challenge you to read Revelation 12 and 13 and see for yourself that when this is lined up with the computer projections for this fall, it certainly appears that it is about to happen. Daniel prophesied about increased knowledge in the end days, and the current knowledge of astronomy gained from computer projections could be a fulfillment of that prophecy, opening the doors of awareness of an even greater prophecy. These are sobering thoughts. God have mercy on us all. 

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) will occur on either the 22nd or 23rd of September this year, and the heavens will fit the description of Revelation 12:1 and 2.

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. ~Revelation 12:1­–2

The Sun will be located in the middle of the woman (Virgo) and the Moon will be under her feet. This happens every Rosh Hashanah, but the difference this year is that the remainder of verses 1 and 2 is also fulfilled. The remainder of verse 1 speaks of a garland of 12 stars on her head, and this will be resembled in the heavens as a string of pearls backwards from Virgo’s head that connects the major planets of Mercury, Venus, and Mars (which would appear as stars) to the 9 major stars of Leo, plus.

Throughout this arrangement, Jupiter (known as the King planet) is fulfilling verse 2 as it retrogrades in Virgo’s midsection, depicting the birth of her child. It will descend down the birth canal on September 23rd, 2017, which just “happens” to be the Feast of Trumpets that announces the coming of the King. This cannot be wrong.

Many of us have long suspected that Jupiter (Hebrew Tsedeq) is the King Star of Matthew 2. The fact that it will be retrograding around Virgo’s star Al Zemach at this time, makes it clear that it is. (See also http://drdaleblog.blogspot.com postings from June 16 and July 15, 2015.)

Another sign that could be pointing toward a culmination occurred on December 23, 2016, when an anti-settlement resolution was passed by the United Nations Security Council, nullifying the legality of any Jewish settlement built in Israeli-occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem where the Temple Mount is located. Although the resolution does not specify this, some are interpreting this to be delegitimizing the Temple Mount and the Wailing Wall as Israeli territory. What’s interesting is that the celestial event of September 23, 2017 will occur nine months to the day of the signing of this anti-Israel resolution. (Read the full text of this resolution at http://www.timesofisrael.com/full-text-of-unsc-resolution-approved-dec-23-demanding-israel-stop-all-settlement-activity/.)

Historically, since the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the Six-Day War of 1967, we now are facing the possibility of a Jubilee fulfillment, with this one potentially being the 120th.

As for celestial indicators this year, there was a recent comet siting during a lunar eclipse in February (2017), and there is going to be a solar eclipse exactly one month before the target of September 23, 2017. In the following subsection, I will give a short Christological interpretation of the comet’s message and then one on the solar eclipse that will take place in August. The heavens are heralding the coming of the King and the casting down of Satan.  


Comet 45P




Comet 45P, also known as the Honda or New Year’s Comet, became visible (with binoculars) sometime during December and remained that way through the early part of March. (It becomes visible about every 5.25 years.) In December it was spotted in the constellation of Hercules and was tracked through Corona (the Crown) in January and February. In early March, it disappeared from view in the constellation of Boötes.

Christologically, Comet 45P’s course broadcasted the same message that the celestial alignment of Revelation 12 will display in September: Satan is being cast down! Hercules will be in a central position in the sky with his foot on the head of the constellation Drago, the dragon (or serpent), representing Messiah the serpent crusher (Revelation 12:7ff). When Comet 45P left Hercules, it traveled through the constellation of Corona, depicting the serpent’s effort to remove the crown; however, it was subdued by the twin giant of the heavens, Ophiuchus. Corona represents the crown of life promised to Christ followers who stand fast so that no man can take their crown (Revelation 2:10). Comet 45P ended up in Boötes (the Lord coming to reap the harvest) before disappearing from view (Revelation 14:14ff).

The twofold definitive statement is that the judgment of Yeshua is coming upon the devil (by casting down the serpent) and He is coming to gather His people (Revelation 12:7–9). This doesn’t mean it will happen on that very day (September 23, 2017); however, it should come to pass very soon.


The Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017

One month before the forecasted date of the fulfillment of Revelation 12:1 and 2, a solar eclipse will occur, appearing mainly over the United States. (Incidentally, at that time Vicki and I will be in Casper, Wyoming, one of the best viewing sites, where I have been invited to speak on the Christology of this event.) The world will go bonkers over this eclipse with most of them not even realizing the significant location of it. In the Stellarium depiction below, we can see where it will occur.



The moon is eclipsing the Sun in direct relationship to the star Regulus in the constellation of Leo. Leo Christologically represents the Lion of the Tribe of Judah—the Messiah. Many will observe this sign plastered in the heavens that is announcing the coming of the Lord, yet “seeing they may see and not perceive” (Mark 4:12 NKJV).  

There will be thousands traveling to Casper, Wyoming to view this eclipse and partake in the “Wyoming Eclipse Festival 2017.”  I wonder if it will draw serious Sun worshipers or those simply looking to party. Either way, pray for open doors of utterance to open blind eyes. It will be a big deal, and there will be heavy media coverage, yet I doubt anyone will mention the fact that it is occurring in Leo in direct conjunction with the star Regulus (the King star)—or that it’s happening exactly one lunar month before September 23rd. An additional factor that makes this eclipse in August so compelling is that both the Sun and moon will be in conjunction with Regulus. This shows the coming of the Lord in judgment, as the King of kings and Lord of lords.

During a total solar eclipse, the Sun’s light is blocked out, making other celestial bodies visible, almost as if it were nighttime. It can be compared to a theatrical performance when the house lights are dimmed so the audience can focus on the stage and its players. When the main light is blocked on August 18, Jupiter will be plainly visible in Virgo during its retrograde in the womb; and all this points to the coming of the King.


Revelation 12:3 and 4—“The Meat of the Matter” (Part 2)

To the best of my knowledge, the signs in the heavens have been pointing to two things since 1996—the coming of the Lord and the casting down of Satan. The celestial alignment of September 2017 is broadcasting this two-fold message. Revelation 12:1 and 2 show the Lord’s coming and verses 3 and 4 show Satan being cast down while in the midst of trying to prevent His coming.  

For years, I’ve tried to understand the imagery in Revelation 12, and now I believe it has been profiling the first and second comings of the Lord. We cannot separate verses 1 and 2 from 3 and 4 because they are simultaneous events. The red dragon in verse 3 is positioning himself to devour the child as soon as it’s born.

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. ~Revelation 12:3–4

Make no mistake, what is being displayed in the heavens is a scene of impending violence. It seems as though chapter 12 is heaven’s picture of what is happening on earth in chapter 13. When the dragon is cast down, he comes to the earth and empowers the beast (Revelation 13:2).

Verses 1 and 2, as far as I understand, have a mutually inclusive event that is further enhanced in verses 3 and 4 with the entrance of the red dragon. The dragon appears to devour the Child (represented by Jupiter), indicating a celestial phenomenon at that moment in time. The spiritual implication is that Satan will be thrown down to earth, potentially beginning the Great Tribulation. From the subsequent chapters in Revelation, the story line bears witness to what the heavens were prophesying in verses 1–4 of chapter 12—Satan is soon to be cast down to earth, triggering the Great Tribulation!

Regardless of how this is interpreted, it still indicates that the red dragon will show up simultaneously with the woman about to bear her child. This will signal the war in heaven between Michael and his angels and the dragon and his angels, resulting in the dragon, Satan, being cast to the earth.

Lastly, I want to exhort you with a scripture that is so relevant today, the ink may still be wet, even though it was written almost 2,000 years ago.

Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. ~Revelation 12:12

This is where the rubber meets the road and our traditional doctrine will be challenged, because the obvious outcome of this will be great tribulation. Interestingly, this verse is telling the heavens and those who dwell in them to rejoice, which indicates a gathering of people in the heavens. To me, this could be interpreted as the Bride of Christ being caught away, leaving the rest of the Body of Christ on the earth to be purged during the Great Tribulation. This is one way to interpret what these celestial events are signaling.
 
This phenomenon may quite possibly include an unidentified celestial object (UCO) appearing somewhere in the vicinity of Jupiter, or perhaps under Virgo’s feet. From reports we’ve already been receiving, this could be Planet X’s (Nibiru’s) earthly debut. The description of the red dragon in verses 3 and 4 lines up with the description of a celestial phenomenon in Chinese astronomy that occurred around 1628 bc.1 Gil Broussard also documents a siting recorded by Chinese astronomers dating back to ad 1054.2

I have long believed and voiced that the Great Tribulation would be accompanied by, if not caused by, celestial anomalies. It is obvious when you read a prophecy about a mountain falling into the sea that it is referring to something falling from the heavens, i.e., an asteroid the size of a mountain (Revelation 9:1).

Revelation 12:1–4 speaks of two separate celestial events, but I believe they will happen simultaneously this fall. The context shows us that this will begin hell on earth because of Satan being cast down. The verses later on in chapter 12 about overcoming him suddenly become relevant. 

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. ~Revelation 12:11

It is also fitting to acknowledge that the Lord may be coming for His bride and that she is taken out of the tribulation and then comes again with Him in glory. There are lots of things to consider from piecing together both the heavenly and written Scriptures.

I believe these are the most exciting times to be alive ever. Believing (or not believing) in the rapture will not make it happen (nor stop it from happening). The Bible declares that Jesus will choose a bride, and it appears that the only thing within our control is making the decision to seek the Lord and be holy. So let’s do what Matthew 25:1–13 exhorts us to do and trim our lamps and be ready for the coming of our Bridegroom.

Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. ~Luke 21:28

In our present culture of heated political debates, let me say this—our hope is in Jesus, not political allies or in any earthly powers, nor is it in our own physical strength.

As I said earlier, research continues to pour in on this upcoming event at lightning speed. As I am able to evaluate and disseminate it, I will update you and also go further into the subsequent chapters of the book of Revelation.

And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” ~Revelation 22:17

Notes

1.         Greg Jenner, “Planet X and the Kolbrin Bible Collection,” online article, accessed March 16, 2017, http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/hercolobus/kolbrin_08.htm. Jenner states the following in his article:

From James Legge’s book The Sacred Books of China (1879), he cites an ancient story of a corrupt tyrant named King Chieh who just so happened to be the last King of the Xia Dynasty. During the Xia/Shang dynasty transition, King Chieh was defeated by King T’ang, and according to my research, the transition period could have included 1628 BC - the time Typhone (the celestial Beast) was seen overhead.

Legge translates:

              The Sacred Books of China
              “…the king of Xia [Chieh] extinguished his virtue, and played the               tyrant ... The way of heaven is to bless the good and make the bad               miserable. It sent down calamities on [the dynasty of] Xia, to make           manifest his guilt ...”

During King Chieh’s defeat, the ancient Chinese text refers to “bright terrors,” “sending calamities” and the bitter weed “wormwood”.

To me, these quotes indicate King Chieh quite possibly could have seen the celestial Beast in the skies at the time of his defeat (along with King Typhon’s observation in a totally different region of the world).
