If you take a straight edge and place it about half way between the 23rd and 22nd on the comet path lines for both comets the line between the two comets intersects the star Sirius directly through the middle! I went to google and and found the following under www.siriusrising.com/sirius.htm . Substitute the Groom for Sirius A and bride for Sirius B.
The star of Isis, called Sothis, or Sirius, is the brightest star in our night sky. Modern astronomy has determined that it is only 8 1/2 light-years distant, and traveling directly towards Earth at many thousands of miles per hour. The Ancient Egyptians believed that Sirius had a tremendous effect upon life on our planet.
The system of Sirius contains two known stars, the first binary star system discovered. The larger and brighter of the two, Sirius A, is three times the mass of our sun, and over ten times as bright. Shining with a brilliant blue-white radiance, Sirius A easily overshadows her darker companion star. Sirius B is a "white dwarf" star, invisible to the naked eye and packing the equivalent mass of our sun into an incredibly dense globe only 4 times the diameter of our Earth.
The Sirius system is directly "upstream" of our solar system within the galactic arm of our Milky Way Galaxy. Because of this, we now know that the polarized energies of Sirius do indeed wash over us. Modern science is yet to discover if this vast current of highly charged particles affects solar activity or life on Earth .
By coming directly towards us, Sirius creates an axis of rotation with Earth relative to the stellar background. Because of this, of all the stars in the sky, only the annual heliacal rising of Sirius exactly matches the length of our solar year, 365.25 days.
The Ancient Egyptians were somehow aware of this unique relationship between our system and Sirius and marked the heliacal rising of Sirius as the first day of their calendar year.
Even today, unbeknownst to most of the people of the world, our News Years Eve celebration is a continuation of a most ancient ritual honoring the return of Sirius to the midheaven position at midnight. Occurring down through the ages around January 1st, this midnight alignment marks the moment when the energies of Sirius, directly overhead, most closely touch our lives in her most singular purity. For countless thousands of years and all around the world, without knowing the hidden reason, we have marked this midnight moment by jumping for joy as the rush of this vital connection surges through us.
Sirius B traces an elliptical orbit around Sirius A, and their common center of gravity, directly face onto the Earth like the dial of a clock. Taking 50 years to complete their orbit, the period of closest connection, called the periastron, is a time when the radiated energies of these two great stars is especially intense.
Sirius B spins on it's axis at an incredible 23 times a minute ( 23 rpm!!), generating an enormous magnetic field. As it approaches periastron, it begins to pull huge amounts of gas and material away from its less dense companion.
The gravitational attraction of these stars for each other and the energies they release at this time of closest communion is difficult, if not impossible for the human mind to comprehend.
Vast amounts of electromagnetic radiation, including visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays, gamma rays and beyond, are thrown into space. The extra gas and material Sirius A provides for her companion re-ignite fusion reactions within Sirius B, and once again, her eternal lover, now blazing brightly, is reborn.
As Sirius B moves past periastron, the light generated by their shared energies begins to diminish until eventually, it resumes its role as her "Dark Companion".
As Robert Temple has shown in his book "The Sirius Mystery", the Ancient Egyptians were aware of Sirius B and the orbital dynamics of the Sirian system in predynastic times, before 3200 BC. Modern astronomy did not discover these facts until over five thousand years later, in 1862.
Did you see the references of our relationship to Christ. The 23 rpm's reminded me of the 23rd. Just the fact that the stars annual rising is exactly 365.25 days is just too much! And that both stars face the earth constantly like the face of a clock! Is this a clue from the Creator of these objects! I believe so. It takes "50 years" to complete an orbit, to me is a clue to a Grand Jubille. How about Sirius returns to a midheaven position at midnight and we all jump for joy! And people have been practicing this for years without knowing the "hidden reason"! There are others but I'm sure you get the message. You also need to go to the web site and see the picture of the two stars and post it. It has "7 rays" of light coming off of it and Sirius B is at the 8:00 position. I definately think this star is a time marker.
But that is not all! Look what Biblical Astronomy .com says in their May 2004 newsletter.
The main theme of the sign Gemini is Messiahís reign as Prince of Peace. One of the decan constellations that belong to the sign Gemini is Canis Major. As mentioned in previous writings, Canis Major was an eagle or a hawk in the more ancient planispheres, not a dog, and represents the coming glorious Prince of Princes as signified by its brightest star Sirius (the Prince, Sar as in Isaiah 9:6). Sirius is the brightest star (other than the planets) in the heavens as seen from Earth. It was at one time called Naz-Seir, the Sent Prince who was to come and destroy the evil one. It was written of Messiah that he should be called a Naz-Seir-ene (see the article He Shall be Called a Nazarene in the January/February 2004 issue of Biblical Astronomy
This conjunction of Mars and Saturn is of particular interest since it occurs on the same evening that Comet LINEAR T7 crosses the path of Comet Neat Q4 in Canis Major near the star Sirius. Again, see the Jan/Feb 2004 issue of BA for further info and charts on the two comets. The timing of these two events in the same sign (Gemini) is just impeccable. There is definitely no shortage of signs in the month of May 2004. Taking all of these events into consideration and the timing involved, these are not just signs, these are GREAT SIGNS in the heavens. We shall see what we shall see.
One more thing. I believe the "T7" in the comets name is a clue for "7 thunders". And "Q4" could be a clue for 2004 or Revelation 4 (open door) or 4am in the "4th" watch in the night. Like it says above, we shall wait and see.
Yes! a good one, to May 22,23 (Sivan 3, 5764). Thank you for sending this information to me. It made me go back and pull out the Zodiac picture included in F. Chris Patrick's "Zodiac Conspiracy." On it I had written down the dates of several signs we have had in the heavens. It was an eye-opener.
Think back. THE WISE MEN WATCHED FOR A STAR when the Christ child came the first time. In our days, were THE WISE VIRGINS TO WATCH FOR A STAR? I think so.
In 1999, THE NEW STAR, NOVA VELORUM, APPEARED ON Pentecost, Sivan 7, which was MAY 22. That might be the clincher.
At 6 PM on May 22, 2004, Sivan 3 begins. Six hours later, at midnight, our May 23 begins. That just could be the night we have been waiting so patiently for. Nova Velorum was in the sails of the ship ARGO, which means THE COMPANY OF TRAVELERS. That represents the Bride of Christ. The ship reminds us of Noah's Ark. The Rapture is as the days of Noah (Mt. 24:37). And oh! what a story comet BRADFIELD'S path tells. Things do seem to be falling into place.
> > If you take a straight edge and place it about half way between the 23rd and 22nd on the comet path lines for both comets the line between the two comets intersects the star Sirius directly through the middle!
Psa. 147:4 says that the LORD "telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names." The Hebrews called this sign, which we call Canis Major, as well as the main star SIRIUS, THE PRINCE (i.e., Christ). It should be shown as a prince on his throne. The Egyptian name for this sign is SEIR, THE PRINCE. The second brightest star in this sign is an Arabic name, MIRZAM, THE PRINCE. Another star is the Arabic SHIRA AL JEMENIYA, THE PRINCE OF THE RIGHT HAND, which is Christ.
In Isa. 9:6, Jesus is called "the PRINCE of peace." Dan. 8:25 calls Him "the PRINCE OF PRINCES." No wonder God made Sirius the brightest star in the sky.
I noticed that in the Jan/Feb 04 edition of Biblical Astronomy, Bob Wadsworth said, "There is a lack of any foreseeable significant celestial events in the months of January through March. The heavens are very quiet as far as special events."
That makes the May events stand out as special. In the May issue, he said, "It is quite rare for three comets of such magnitude to come to their closest approach to the earth within a one-month period. It appears that the draught is over."
I could be wrong, but so far, the night of May 22/23 seems to be a good bet for the Rapture. Jesus was resurrected on Sunday night, which started at 6 PM Saturday. Maybe the dead in Christ will also be resurrected between 6 PM next Saturday night and 6 PM Sunday morning (Jerusalem time). Some saints "came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many" (Mt. 27:53).
Many will see the raptured ones too. Psa. 40:1-3 says, "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined (bent down) unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit (as when Jeremiah was brought out of the miry pit), out of the miry clay (out of our earthy bodies), and set my feet upon a rock (the planet Heaven), and established my goings. And he hath put a new song (sung by the saints in Rev. 5:9) in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it (the Rapture), and fear, and shall trust in the LORD."
Bob Wadsworth said, "Canis Major was an eagle or a hawk in the more ancient planispheres, not a dog, and represents the coming glorious Prince of Princes as signified by its brightest star Sirius (the Prince, Sar as in Isaiah 9:6). Sirius is the brightest star (other than the planets) in the heavens as seen from Earth. It was at one time called Naz-Seir, the Sent Prince who was to come and destroy the evil one. It was written of Messiah that he should be called a Naz-Seir-ene. (see the article He Shall be Called a Nazarene in the January/February 2004 issue of Biblical Astronomy).
"This conjunction of Mars and Saturn is of particular interest since it occurs on the same evening that Comet LINEAR T7 crosses the path of Comet Neat Q4 in Canis Major near the star Sirius. Again, see the Jan/Feb 2004 issue of BA for further info and charts on the two comets. The timing of these two events in the same sign (Gemini) is just impeccable. There is definitely no shortage of signs in the month of May 2004. Taking all of these events into consideration and the timing involved, these are not just signs, these are GREAT SIGNS in the heavens. We shall see what we shall see."
Bob also said, "Adom (Mars) and Sabbatei (Saturn) will come into conjunction (same celestial longitude) on May 24, 2004 in the constellation Thaumim (Gemini)."
The eagle is significant. Ex. 19:4 says, "I bare you on EAGLES' WINGS, AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF." This is the first I knew that comet LINEAR would cross the path of comet NEAT at the same time that Saturn and Mars will be in the closest conjuction in Gemini on the 24th. The growing evidence is building a good case for the Rapture on May 22/23, when the Moon joins Saturn and Mars in Gemini (the twins). Saturn and Mars are very close on that day too. Canis Major is a Decan of Gemini. Each constellation in the zodiac has three decans that help tell the Gospel in the Stars.
The Moon is closest to them on May 22 and 23. By the 24th, the Moon is moving into Cancer. The Moon may be showing us the date, for Sivan 3 is our May 22/23.
To have two comets in our sky on May 22,23 is significant. Comet NEAT will be overhead when the Moon visits Mars and Saturn in Gemini on the 22nd. Their paths cross in Canis Major near the ship Argo, the company of travelers, i.e., the Bride of Christ. In some pictures, the ship Argo has a depiction of the face of Christ just above the waterline and a Ram's head above on the prow.
Not only was the new star, Nova Velorum in VELA, the sails of the ship ARGO, on May 22, 1999, the double anchor sign was seen in VELA on June 9, 2000. The Double Anchor means hope in the Eastern Orthodox Church. (Pictures are near the bottom of Home Page.)
At 6 PM Saturday, May 22, 2004, Sivan 3, 5761, begins, the date when the Lord came down on Mt. Sinai, and there were "thunders" and "THE VOICE OF THE TRUMPET EXCEEDING LOUD" (Ex. 19:16). This is the first trump of God of the Bible. I think it represents the FIRST TRUMP at the Pre-Trib Rapture (I Thess. 4:13-18).
There will be signs in the Sun, Moon and Constellations when the Rapture is nigh. Luke 21:25,28 says, "there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring...And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (i.e., the Rapture) draweth nigh."
Sun - enters Gemini May 21, 2004; double anchor sign, 7-1-00
Moon - enters Gemini May 22, 2004; Blood Moon, May 4, 2004
Constellations - 3 comet's paths through the constellations
NEAT and LINEAR's paths cross in Canis Major near Sirius and the ship Argo. Then there is BRADFIELD in Pisces. What a story comet Bradfield tells. Look at its path.
I think the two fish in Pisces represent the saints and the two Raptures. At the time of the first Rapture, the foolish virgins (the larger fish) have to swim back to get more Holy Spirit from Christ, the water pourer in Aquarius. The smaller fish swimming upward represents the Bride of Christ going to Heaven in the first Rapture. As she goes up, the northern fish merges with Andromeda (a Decan of Pisces), the Bride who is chained to the Rock, and that Rock was Christ. He will take his Bride on to Heaven. Cepheus (a Decan of Pisces) represents Christ as the great King sitting on his throne in Heaven. Beside him is Cassiopia, the Queen (a Decan of Aries, the Ram) completing the picture of the Marriage of the Lamb.
The brightest star in Cepheus is the Arabic AL DERAMIN, meaning COMING QUICKLY AS IN A CIRCLE. It represents Christ, who returns to the Earth. Other stars are the Arabic AL PHIRK, THE REDEEMER and AL RAI, he who bruises or breaks. In Hebrew, there are CHEICUS, TO COME IN A CIRCLE, and REGULUS, TREADING UNDERFOOT.
Andromeda's ancient name in Hebrew was SIRRA, meaning the chained. A star in Andromeda is MIZAR, the bound. Another star is named AL MOSEALAH, delivered from the grave or hell. Boy! that almost says Moses, and I think the date of the Rapture is told in the account of Moses and the Israelites at Mt. Sinai.
The Decans of Pisces are the Band, Andromeda and Cepheus (the great king seated on His throne, who has his foot on the North Pole, because Earth is His footstool. He represents Christ, Lord of lords and King of kings.
As the Lamb of God, Christ (Aries) has control of the Band that binds both fish (wise and foolish virgins) to Him. The ancient Egyptians called the Band "U-or," HE COMETH. When Christ comes for his Bride, He will take them up to Heaven, his throne.
In our sky, all thee heavens (II Cor. 12:2, i.e., Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) revolve around Polaris, the North Star, and the throne of Cepheus (Christ) circles (ie., orbits) around Polaris as Saturn's orbit Is outside of Earth's orbit.
Cepheus is holding aloft in his right hand a fistfull of fabric strips, a sign that he is a man of the cloth, a religious figure, as well as a king. Cepheus represents Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords.
Look how the path of comet Bradfield tells the story of the Rapture. The band attached to Cetus (Satan) is hooked and pulled free. The northern fish swims up into Andromeda (the Bride chained to the Rock, Christ) showing that the northern fish and Andromeda represent the Bride of Cepheus (Christ on his throne in Heaven, Saturn, which orbits outside of Earth's orbit).
Originally, there were two ships Argo, depicting the two Raptures. They are described further by the Decans of Cancer, Ursa Minor (originally the Minor Sheepfold, i.e., the Good Shephard's sheep of the Pre-Trib Rapture) and Ursa Major (the Major Sheepfold, the great multitude of the Pre-Wrath Rapture; Rev. 7:9).
All three comets have a story to tell, if we have eyes to see. The LORD has planned their paths among the constellations.
I hope the May 22 date of the NEW STAR, NOVA VELORUM, will turn out to be the date of the Pre-Trib Rapture in 2004. Here is the picture of Sirius.
> > Do you think that the T7 in the comet C2002 T7 could allude to "7 Thunders"? And the Q4 in the comet C/2001 Q4 maybe allude to 2004, or Revelation 4 (open door), or 4th watch in the night?
The number 7 means completion. I think the 7 thunders happen at "the last trump" (I Cor. 15:51,52), the 2nd Rapture. The number 4 is the number of the Earth. I sure hope it signals 2004 for the first Rapture. Agape
You are so right on this. I think the awakening BLAST will be on the Feast of Trumpets that begins Christ's millennial reign. It is the Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath, the day of Christ's coronation, the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Marriage of the Lamb. The asteroids of Rev. 8:8 and 10 will impact Earth at noon. That will be the blast heard around the world. I believe it will also be the day of the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Tribulation saints.
Zeph. 2:1-5 says,"Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired (Israel, 1948); Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD's anger come upon you (probably Tishri 1, 5771, Sept. 9, 2010, Feast of Trumpets). Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid (because they are raptured before noon) in the day of the LORD's anger. For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the NOON day, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast."
I think the mountain burning with fire of Rev. 8:8 will impact the Mediterranean Sea at noon. The larger asteroid of Rev. 8:10 will obliterate Babylon. These blasts will not only be heard around the world, they will be accompanied by the worldwide earthquake. Every wall will fall (Eze. 38:18-20). The cities of the nations will be destroyed (Rev. 16:18).
The 2nd Rapture will be "the last trump" of God. I Cor. 15:51-53 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at THE LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." The dead are "raised in incorruption" (I Cor. 15:42). Immortality is imparted at the change, which follows the 2nd Rapture, "the last trump."
Jesus said that the Great Tribulation (last half of the 7-year Tribulation would be shortened or no flesh would be saved (Mt. 24:21,22). I think it will be shortened by 220 days. I expect the last half of the 70th week of Dan. 9:27 to last 1040 days. That will be a huge 10-4 over and out. If the first half of the Tribulation lasts 1260 days (Rev. 11:3), and the Great Tribulation is 1040 days, the shortened Tribulation will be 2300 days.
Dan. 8:13-17 was one vision that Daniel understood applied to the time of the end. It says, "HOW LONG shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice (1st half of the Tribulation, 1260 days, Rev. 11:3), and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot (during the latter part, the Great Tribulation)? And he said unto me, UNTO TWO THOUSAND AND THREE HUNDRED DAYS (lit., evenings and mornings); then shall the sanctuary be cleansed (i.e., on the Day of God's Wrath). And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for AT THE TIME OF THE END SHALL BE THE VISION."
When is "the time of the end"? Verse 19 says, "in the LAST END OF THE INDIGNATION: for at the time appointed (i.e., on the 2300th day) THE END SHALL BE." Verse 23 says it is, "when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences (the Satan-possessed False Prophet) shall stand up (i.e.,Mid-Trib, Rev. 13:11)."
Verses 25 and 26 say of the False Prophet, "he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes (Christ); but he shall be broken without hand (i.e., on the 2300th day). And the vision of the evening and the morning (verse 14, i.e., the 2300 days) which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days."
I believe that the shortened Tribulation will end on the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1, 5771 (Sept. 9, 2010). Since the end of the 2300-day Tribulation must be on Tishri 1, the Day of God's Wrath (Joel 2:1-3), the Feast of Trumpets, the beginning of the 2300-day Tribulation, would fall on Sivan 3, May 22,23 in 2004.
There is no way the 2300-days can both start and end on the Feast of Trumpets.
If it ends on the Feast of Trumpets in 2010, the 2300-day Tribulation doesn't start on Pentecost, either. It starts on Sivan 3, 5764 (May 22/23, 2004).
The Pre-Trib Rapture is the first "trump of God". I Thess. 4:16,17 says, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with THE TRUMP OF GOD: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
The Pre-Wrath Rapture is "the last trump" of God. I Cor. 15:51-53 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at THE LAST TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption (this happens at both Raptures, I Cor. 15:42), and this mortal must put on immortality." Being made immortal happens for the whole Body of Christ at THE LAST TRUMP.
If there is a LAST TRUMP of God, there must be a FIRST TRUMP of God. Let's do a Search. When did the first trump of the Bible sound? We find out that the word "trump" is only used for the two Raptures, in I Cor. 15:52 and I Thess. 4:16, the one in I Cor. 15:52 being the "last trump." Therefore, I Thess. 4:13-18 is talking about the FIRST TRUMP. Let's search for "trumpet." We find that Ex. 19:13 is the first "trumpet" of the Bible, and it is sounded by God.
Ex. 19:13 says, "when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount." Mt. Sinai represents Heaven. Sinai seems to be from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn. According to Josephus, Saturn is the seventh lamp on the temple lampstand including the Sun (Ant. III. VI. 7; Wars V. V. 5--(1) Sun, (2) Mercury, (3), Venus, (4) Earth, (5) Mars, (6) Jupiter, and (7) Saturn.
Saturn is represented in Eze. 1:26 and 28:13 (7th stone) by the "sapphire." Eze. 1:26 says, "above the firmament (expanse of space) that was over their heads (i.e., farther out in space than the 4 terrestrial planets) was the likeness (symbolic language) of a throne, as the appearance of A SAPPHIRE STONE: and upon the likeness of the throne (i.e., the sapphire planet) was the likeness (symbolic language) as the appearance of a man (Christ) above upon it." Christ's throne seems to be on Saturn, and there is "brightness round about" (Eze. 1:28). The brightness around Saturn is "As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain." Both the rainbow and the brightness of the rings of Saturn are caused by sunlight on ice crystals.
Sapphire means "dear to the planet Saturn," from the Sanskrit "Sani," Saturn, and "priya," dear.
The first trumpet, when we are caught up to Heaven (i.e., Saturn) is the same as the first trump of I Thess. 4:16. How do we know that the trump of I Thess. 4:16 equals the first trump of Ex. 19:13? We know for sure that the trump of I Cor. 15:52 is "the last trump." That rules it out, for "the last trump" cannot qualify as the first trump.
Since Mt. Sinai represents Heaven, Ex. 24:10 says, "they saw the God of Israel (YHWH YAHshua, Isa. 44:6): and there was under his (YHWH YAHshua/Christ's) feet as it were (symbolic language) a paved work of A SAPPHIRE STONE (i.e., Saturn), and as it were (symbolic language) the body of heaven (the heavenly body, Saturn) in his clearness."
Since the first trump of God sounded at Mt. Sinai, when does it say that YHWH came down? Ex. 19:1 says, "In the third month (chodesh, the new moon, i.e., Sivan 1), when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the SAME DAY (Sivan 1) came they into the wilderness of Sinai."
"Moses went up unto God" (Ex. 19:3). That seems to be because Moses will come down from Heaven as one of the two witnesses of Rev. 11 at the FIRST TRUMP, the Pre-Trib Rapture. Moses was to tell "the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I (the LORD) did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you ON EAGLES WINGS, AND BROUGHT YOU UNTO MYSELF" (Ex. 19:3,4). This is symbolic of the Pre-Trib Rapture.
Isa. 40:31 says, "they that wait upon the LORD (i.e., the Bride of Christ) shall renew their strength; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." De. 32:11 says, "As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, TAKETH THEM, BEARETH THEM ON HER WINGS." This symbolizes what Christ will do for us at the Rapture.
Psa. 103:2-7 says, "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who CROWNETH THEE (at the Rapture, Rev. 3:11; 4:4) with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that THY YOUTH IS RENEWED LIKE THE EAGLES'S. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. HE MADE KNOWN HIS WAYS UNTO MOSES, HIS ACTS UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL."
Since God made known is ways and acts to Moses and the children of Israel, we should look carefully at the timing of the Lord's coming down at the FIRST TRUMP, in Exodus 19.
SIVAN 2 and 3
Ex. 19:10,11 says, "the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day (Sivan 1) and to morrow (Sivan 2), and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day (Sivan 3): for the third day (of the 3rd month) THE LORD WILL COME DOWN in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai." Verse 13 says, "WHEN THE TRUMPET SOUNDETH LONG, THEY SHALL COME UP (i.e., when Christ's trumpet voice says, 'COME UP HITHER,' Rev. 4:1) TO THE MOUNT" (Sinai, i.e., Heaven, Saturn). This represents the FIRST TRUMP, i.e., the first Rapture.
Sivan 3, 5764 is Sunday, May 22/23 in 2004. It looks like the resurrection and ascension at the FIRST TRUMP will be on Sunday, as it was for Jesus. He was raised up on the first day of the week and took the Old Testament saints to Heaven that same day. Afterward, he returned to Earth for another 40 days before he ascended again. His taking the OT saints to Heaven on Sunday probably prefigured his taking the NT saints to Heaven on Sunday.
The two trumps of God were prefigured in Nu. 10:1-4. It says, "the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee TWO TRUMPETS OF SILVER; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. And when they shall blow with them (i.e., both), all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation (Heb. 12:23). And if they blow but with ONE TRUMPET (i.e., the FIRST TRUMP, the 1st Rapture), then the princes (elders), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee." The 24 elders are seen crowned and sitting on their thrones in Heaven in Rev. 4:4. They are the patriarchs of the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 apostles. John is among them. When he is caught up, we will be caught up.
Sivan 3 is in the spring. I think the SECRET OF THE STAIRS in Song of Solomon 2:10-14 shows us that it will be spring at the time of the FIRST TRUMP. Sivan 3 is in the spring. Song 2:10-14 says, "My beloved (i.e., Christ) spake, and said unto me (i.e., the Bride of Christ), RISE UP, my love, my fair one, and COME AWAY. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds (italicized words are not in the original) is come (the saints sing the NEW SONG, Rev. 5:9), and the voice of the turtle (turtledove) is heard in our land (the doves come in April and migrate south in October); The fig tree (Israel) putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. ARISE, my love, my fair one, and COME AWAY. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs (like Jacob's ladder), let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely." Agape
When I see things like this, I think God is showing us his wondrous power. Here are a couple of his awesome works. The first is found in the constellation Vela, the sails of the ship Argo, the congregation of the redeemed. The second is it's echo in the Sun. The double anchor is the symbol of hope in the Eastern Orthodox Church. We are filled with hope as we see the signs of the Rapture approaching. Keep watching, and get ready, we are almost home.
Signs unfold as a scroll across the springtime sky. Observe wonders on earth and in heavens above. Look up, knowing your redemption is drawing nigh.
Mars, Venus and the moon cluster, align nearby. Three new comets frolic in the heavens above. Signs unfold as a scroll across the springtime sky
Christ, the Bridegroom, sits with his Bride in Gemini, Symbols embracing Godís unfailing grace and love. Look up, knowing your redemption is drawing nigh.
His beloved bride shall Christ also glorify: Their lamps full, watching and waiting, looking above. Signs unfold as a scroll across the springtime sky.
Those awaiting His coming someday soon shall fly Far beyond the cage of this flesh, free as a dove. Look up, knowing your redemption is drawing nigh.
We shall be transformed in the twinkling of an eye, Gathered together, free to know eternal love. Signs unfold as a scroll across the springtime sky. Look up, knowing your redemption is drawing nigh.
