I don’t know why, but even still… eleven days after the September 23rd sign in the sky that was foretold in Revelation has come and gone, I am still finding myself glued to it wanting to know more. To me this sign is significant. And I think most Christians that realize that this sign has recently fulfilled the first two verses of Revelation 12 will also agree with that statement. It however seems to me that most Christians have stepped away from it. September 23rd has come and gone and most everyone is over it.
“Let’s move on to something,” they say.
For some reason I just haven’t been able to do that. There were way too many things lining up historically both on the world stage and on the Jewish calendar for this to not be something to glaze over and forget about so quickly.
With that, I kept looking… and realized something. While most everyone will agree that the first two verses of Revelation have been fulfilled, they forget to realize that there are other things associated with this sign in the heavens in the following verses. Therefore, I refuse to give up and have continued to watch.
Revelation 12:1-3 – 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: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered (this is the part that has officially been fulfilled). And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads (this part needs a little more attention).
Serpens, the snake at the feet of the woman has a head that is made up of seven stars (or, rather… seven heads). Then right above this snake’s head is the Corona, or crown (which is also a constellation made up of exactly 7 stars).
Another way of saying seven crowns perhaps?
But that isn’t what really caught my eye. What really sparked my interest last night was the fact that I hadn’t seen it before. Saturn is at the knee of the man waging war with the snake in heaven.
Revelation 12:4 – And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
Did you know that Saturn is actually considered a god that devours man children as soon as they are born?
With that said, I had to go see if anyone else had noticed this. Hopefully someone else had shed some light on this already. And sure enough, they had. I found the following video.
There is just too much going on with this sign for it to so quickly be overlooked by the vast majority of Christians. We are living in a time when prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes. How are we so quick to walk away from something this big and go back to our daily lives like this isn’t currently unfolding above us? I just don’t understand it.
Another thing that I have noticed is that October 13th is the day that Jupiter officially leaves the relative safety of Virgo (its mother), meaning that it is considered vulnerable for the first time. I find it rather coincidental that this date occurs in conjunction with the Jewish celebration known as Simchat Torah.
Why is this significant?
Well, October 13th just so happens to be the day known to the Jews as the “Eighth Day“… or the day of completion, because that is the day that they finish the yearly reading of the Old Testament and officially bring in the new year of reading.
John 19:30 – When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
One, you can roll your eyes at the fact that I am still excited about this sign. Or two, you can admit to yourself that this thing is huge and that the honest likelihood that all of this would line up perfectly (in the stars, Jewish calendar, historically, and more…) is more than mere coincidence.
This string of events reminds me of the story of the 12 virgins found in Mathew 25:1-13. I recommend you go give it a read (to me it represents the delay we are currently seeing).
Time is short. The day of the Lord is at hand. But, who are we kidding… right? I clearly am just an ignorant Christian.
