A new star that is visible to naked eye has evidently appeared! Below is the report
Subject: (meteorobs) BRIGHT NOVA SIGHTED IN AQUILA!
First . . . my apologies for posting a non-meteor-related message, but this might turn out to be something rather special.
I have just received word that a nova -- an exploding star -- has suddenly flared to naked-eye brightness in the constellation of Aquila (the Eagle). According to the Central Bureau of Astronomical Telegrams (IAU Circ. 7323 - http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/iau/cbat.html) Alfredo Pereira (AAVSO member, active observer, and a visual nova searcher) at Cabo da Roca, Portugal discovered this bright nova during his visual search in Aquila on Dec. 1.785 UT (18h 50m UT or 1:50 p.m. EST) at about magnitude 6.0.
Precise position of Nova Aql 1999, No. 2 reported by D. Di Cicco (Sudbury, MA) is:
R.A. = 19h 23m 05s.38
Decl.= +04 57' 20".1 (Equinox 2000.0)
This position places the nova almost directly in the center of the constellation Aquila, less than 2 degrees north of the star Delta Aquilae (magnitude 3.36).
Visual observations since discovery range from magnitude 5.8 to 5.1, suggesting that the nova may be in the process of brightning rapidly. Observers are urged to look for this new object immediately after nightfall on Thursday. It should be favorably placed, approximately 40 degrees up in the southwest sky about an hour after sundown . . . not setting until roughly three hours later.
My reply Thank you bunches for this information. I had a feeling we might see another new star. The wise men saw one that caused them to make the trip to Jerusalem. Then a star appeared again to show them the Christ child had come in nearby Bethlehem.
Last May 22, we had the new star, NOVA VELORUM 1999, in the reefed sails of the ship ARGO (THE COMPANY OF TRAVELLERS). The ship is backing into the dock.
In AQUILLA, the Eagle, which straddles the Milky Way and the Celestial Equator, and represents Christ dying for us, is the brilliant white star ALTAIR (THE WOUNDED). ALTAIR is one of the Summer Triangle along with VEGA, in LYRA, and DENEB in CYGNUS. Other stars in AQUILLA are FAFAGE (THE GLORIOUS SHINING FORTH) and DENEB (THE LORD OR JUDGE COMETH).
Note: The star, "Delta Aquilae," near the new star is in the tail. It is AL OKAL (WOUNDED IN THE HEEL).
The other stars named DENEB, in CYGNUS (WHO COMES AND GOES) and CAPRICORNUS, representing the Lord's death and resurrection, show that these all represent Christ coming and going. CYGNUS has the Northern Cross in it, also the stars AL BIREO (FLYING QUICKLY), SADR (WHO RETURNS, AS IN A CIRCLE) and ARIDED (HE SHALL COME DOWN).
This new star is another GLORIOUS SHINING FORTH in AQUILLA. I take it as a sign. Let's see, (1) Dec., (2) Jan., (3) Feb., (4) Mar., (5) Apr., (6) May., (7) June, seven months. Not bad. On the Jewish calendar, we have (1) Kislev 22, (2) Teveth, (3) Shevat, (4) Adar, (5) Adar II, (6) Nisan, (7) Iyar 22, which is 4 days before Ascension Day and 14 days before the Sabbath, Sivan 7, Pentecost.
Suggesting the Rapture, at Sinai, the Lord said, In the third month (Sivan)...Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on EAGLES' WINGS, and brought you unto myself" (Ex. 19:1,4).
Incoming Email Re: God's picture book, "THE WAY", wriiten in the stars.
Just got through your writing. I agree absolutely with all of it, and corobrorate several of your insights, with documentation and observations I have had. When I wrote to you on October 11/99, about the meteor I saw on October 1/99, it was in ORION and GEMINI. The next day I saw this is where the solstice is this June. This could not be only a coincidence that you have this observation in Book 1 (page "8" of "`13" as they print), Book 3 (page "1" of "9"), Book 3 (page 6 of 9). You had not even written "THE WAY" as yet. Next is this dream I had on December 3/99. I had NOT even downloaded your "THE WAY" yet. Once again, an independent confirmation appears in Book 3 (page 4 of 9). "Other stars: AL PHERKADAIN (Ar., THE CALVES or THE YOUNG, Hebraically, THE REDEEMED)". This is the EXACT word that was told to me, REDEEMED. Since I have started my study of 1Kings3, I picked up on something from my prayer time. 1Kings 3:11, "And God said . . and have asked for discernment for yourself, to understand judgement". This has been included in my prayers for over a year continously, every time I sit down to study the Gospel. In a past e-mail I had told you how I studied, get a Green's Interlinear Bible and pray for discernment.
Last comment is that for the last month I keep being shown threes, and third, and on the third day, in the bible. I have just opened bibles without any choice of a page, and keep finding references to these "threes" and "third". I accept this is a confirmation of what you have in P&C 345. You are absolutely consistent with what I have been seeing just recently. On page "6" of "9" you had "Last days of this extended age, starting with 6000th year . . .(3) 5760 (1999/2000) yr 3 of parable of barren fig tree; probably the rapture" I agree, and confirm my independent observations. I have been looking into this whole concept of the Roman Catholic adaption of a previously pagan ritual that occurs known as "Christmas". Christ being born on Tishri 1, 4 BC, has been the result of my prayers and study (not December 25, as the Roman Catholic Church has assigned). This date would confirm the dates in P&C 345, which I agree with through independent study. God always fulfills everything perfectly, and right on schedule as outlined in the Gospel. Too many independent observations and revelations have been given to us to dismiss 1999/2000 as the third year of the parable of the barren fig tree. I am watching as the Bible commands us! Agape
My reply I appreciate your sharing this. I am watching too. The meeting of the Parliament of World Religion in Cape Town, South Africa now shows how close we are to the prophesied end time events.
After posting parts 1,2 and 3 on THE WAY written in the stars, I saw a few more things. Look at the decans, or parts, of GEMINI (Gem and I came to mind because the Lord is going to make up his "jewels." Mal. 3:17 says, "they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will SPARE THEM (from the Tribulation, as in Lu. 21:36), as a man spareth his own son that serveth him."
The decans are CANIS MAJOR, anciently pictured as the PRINCE ON A THRONE, CANIS MINOR, his follower, and "LEPUS," a small snake. This seems to show that the Bride will be taken up before the serpent becomes the great Dragon of political power.
SIRIUS, in CANIS MAJOR, is the brightest star in they sky, and as is fitting, it means THE PRINCE. The second brightest star in this sign is MIRZAN (THE PRINCE). Another star is SHIRA AL JEMENIYA (THE PRINCE OF THE RIGHT HAND). This decan represents Christ.
In the next sign, CANCER, the parts are THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD, THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD, and the ship ARGO (THE COMPANY OF TRAVELLERS), i.e., Heaven. There were originally two ships just as there are two sheepfolds. In CANCER (THE TRAVELLERS RESTING PLACE), all are brought together to the great assembly on the first day of the Millennium. That is the day the Tribulation saints are caught up by BOOTES' sickle (Rev. 14:15). It (CANCER) follows GEMINI.
In the lap of the female figure in GEMINI is the lyre, symbol of the redeemed. I think it stands for the first Rapture. In the constellation LYRA, the Eagle catches up the second group, represented by another lyre. This constellation is a decan of SAGITTARIUS, which represents Christ when he shoots the arrow of destruction at DRACO's kingdom. DRACO is also a decan of SAGITTARIUS. This action takes place when the Dragon is in political power. He is not pictured there as a small snake, but the mighty dragon whose tail flings down 1/3rd of the angels to the Earth (Rev. 12:4).
In the Zodiac in Chris Patrick's book, TAURUS has two horns. They seem to represent two comings of Christ. The left horn is pricking the shepherd AURIGA's heel. That was the First Advent. The other horn is probably not the Second Advent, for that is LEO. This horn seems more likely to represent the Rapture, and it is touching ORION's club, which is touching the feet of the female in GEMINI and ONE foot of the male figure (Christ). One star in GEMINI is PROPUS (THE BRANCH SPREADING). That seems to tell the tale very well. WASAT (ESTABLISHED, AS A FOUNDATION or SET or APPOINTED TO RULE) is fitting also. Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords, and we are to be "kings and priests" (Rev. 5:10) under him.
I see now why the picture in Seiss's book shows ARIES as a RAM with two horns. That ties in with Rev. 13:11: "I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had TWO HORNS LIKE A LAMB (i.e., Satan has two comings inhabiting a human body, in Judas Iscariot and the False Prophet), and he spake as a dragon" (Satan when he has great political power.
At the Second Advent, Christ will come as King of kings (LEO) riding the snow white horse (PEGASUS). The decans of LEO are HYDRA, CRATER (THE CUP) AND CORVUS (THE RAVEN). HYDRA, the Sea Snake, who is fleeing.
AURIGA, a decan of TAURUS, having in his arm the mother goat and her two kids is reassuring. The under age children of believers will be included in the Rapture. In the picture that came with Chris Patrick's book, the hand of AURIGA that is holding the band or bridle is touching the bow held by the female figure in GEMINI, showing that there is a connection.
Incoming Email Re: morning star
I just read that "I am the morning star" said by Jesus is translated into Hebrew means "I am satan". Do you have the Hebrew translation of Morning star? Thank you
My reply In Isa. 14:12, the KJV says, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!" The Hebrew word translated "Lucifer" is "haylel." Strongs gives the meaning as the "morning star." Gesenius has that according to the LXX, and others, it is "stella lucide," bright star.
Any planet seen in our sky from midnight to dawn is a morning star. Satan's planet Rahab, now our Asteroid Belt, would have been, at certain times of the year, a morning star. Our Heaven is also a planet and becomes a morning star in May, as soon as it can be seen again after rounding the Sun.
In Rev. 22:16, Jesus said, "I am the root (YHVH) and the offspring of David (Jesus), and the BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR." In verse 20, he said, Surely I come quickly. Amen (so be it)." He is talking about the Rapture. I think he will come at the Rapture on Pentecost, when Saturn is literally a bright and morning star in our skies. Of the overcomers of the churches, he said, "I will give him the MORNING STAR" (Rev. 2:28). They are believers and already have Christ in their hearts, so that is not what he is talking about. I take it to literally be a morning star at the time of the Rapture. Around the end of May and early June, Saturn rises around 2:30-3:00 AM, as seen from Jerusalem.

Incoming Email Re: Fw: lunar eclipses - a clue to the sixth seal timing?As you know: Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
This would seem to be a clear definition of a total lunar eclipse, and possible a total solar eclipse as well. Assuming these eclipses would not be unprecedented, and would behave according to prediction, do you think a clue to the timing of the opening of the sixth seal could be gained by studying upcoming lunar eclipses?...
My reply As far as I can see, the sixth seal doesn't have anything to do with ordinary solar or lunar eclipses. It is the last day of this age, which I think is Sept. 12, 2007. The next day is the Feast of Trumpets when the two large asteroid pieces strike Earth at noon (Zeph. 2:4,5; Eze. 25:16; Job 20:23; Amos 8:9) to stop the united nations' army that is attacking Israel. Eze. 38:16-18 says, "in the latter days...at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face."
There is an earthquake, and smoke darkens the sky. It could because of bombs. But, small meteorites are starting to fall, causing more smoke in their fiery descent. Rev. 6:13 says, "And the stars (asteres) of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
There is so much going on this day. Joel 2:1,2 explains, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain." This is the alarm blown by the two silver trumpets. Nu. 10:9 says, "if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies."
Joel continues, "let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD (the Millennium) cometh, for it is nigh at hand (the Feast of Trumpets is about there); A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people (the united nation' army) and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it."
"Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come" (Joel 1:15). "Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the man that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains (asteroids of Rev. 8:8,10) shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD" (Eze. 38:29-21)."
The Sign of the Son of Man is seen in the sky, and then men start to say "to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come (it is past 6:00 PM); and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev. 6:16,17). The first day of the Millennium is the day of thick darkness and destruction, but the darkness starts on the eve as the day approaches.
Incoming Email Re: timing of the 7th seal/ 5th trumpet judgement As you know, this judgement comes with a duration specified: . And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
If the 7th seal starts the seven trumpet judgements, this 5th trumpet judgement, at least, would have to begin at least 5 months before the end of the tribulation, in order for the duration to be completed.
How then can the 6th seal be the day before the last day, and the 7th seal be the last day, if these judgements occur in sequence? Or do they occur in sequence?
Thanks for your insight, as always.
My reply There are 7 months (Eze. 39:12) between the Day of God's Wrath on Tishri 1 and the Second Advent on the following Nisan 1. Thus there can be 5 months of torment when these men would like to die, but don't.
The way I understand it, there are seven seals. Out of the seventh seal come the seven trumpets. Out of the seventh trumpet come the seven bowls, or vials, of God's wrath.
As for timing, the 1st seal starts the Tribulation. This is when the Beast rides forth on a white horse as a prince of peace (Rev. 6:2). The timing of the 7th seal is Tishri 1, 2300 days later (Dan. 8:14).
This is the big day, the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord, "that great day of God Almighty" (Rev. 16:14). In Heaven, Christ receives his golden crown. There are also the Marriage of the Lamb, the Judgment Seat of Christ, and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. At the Judgment Seat the unbelievers on Earth are judged as we get our rewards in Heaven.
Rev. 11:18 says, "And the nations were angry (Gog's army attacking Israel), and thy wrath is come (his fury comes up in his face, Eze. 38:18), and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto they servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth (i.e., eretz Israel)."
The Tribulation saints are caught up right before the 7 trumpets sound. They are seen in heaven, standing on the sea of glass (i.e., ice crystals), and have "the harps of God (Rev. 15:2), the symbol of the redeemed, as in LYRA in God's gospel in the stars.
Rev. 11 ends with "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail." Rev. 15:5-7 picks up the story from there. "I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues...and one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God." Rev. 16:1 says, "I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth." These effects have 7 months to work, while Israel is burying the bodies to cleanse the land for the Lord's return (Eze. 39:12).
There are these 7 months before the Second Advent, when Christ, "The Word of God," the "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS" returns on Nisan 1, the first day of the Jewish Regnal Year and Sacred Year. Rev. 19:11 says, "I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse (like the white PEGASUS); and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth JUDGE and make WAR.
When on Earth, Christ will conduct the Judgment of the Nations, then Armageddon will break out because dominion is taken from Satan. Armageddon is his last ditch stand. When it is over, there will be true peace on Earth.
Incoming Email FWD: Israeli radio Arutz 7 reported: "Chanukah will be given special significance this year, when the Temple Institute in Jerusalem unveils its newly-completed Menorah (candelabrum) at a special ceremony in the Old City's Cardo plaza tonight. Rabbi Menachem Makover, director of the Institute, said today that the new approximately six-foot high Menorah has been built according to the exact specifications of the Torah. 'This does not mean that it will necessarily be used for the Temple,' he told Arutz-7's Yosef Zalmanson, 'and in fact we are forbidden to consecrate it now for Temple use. All those who contributed to the Menorah were made aware of this point. However, it is suitable for use in the Beit HaMikdash.' Rabbi Makover said that while the original Biblical Menorah was comprised of solid gold, 'a kosher Menorah may be made of bronze, or may even be hollow - but if it is made with gold, then the gold or gold-plating must be of one piece. In order to do this, we built a bronze substructure, which we then immersed in a vat of gold. This Menorah is thus plated with almost 43 kilograms of 'one piece' of gold.' He added a timely message: 'We felt that on Chanukah, there could be nothing more appropriate than to have the golden Menorah return to Jerusalem as a symbol of the rebirth of the Jewish people and our march towards fulfilling the vision of building the Temple.'...The Institute has just recently completed two other central Temple Vessels, namely, the Golden Altar and the Table."
My reply This is interesting, but the candlestick for Chanukah has 8 candles because the oil for one day miraculously lasted 8 days. It is different from the candlestick made for the Tabernacle.
That candlestick had 7 lamps. It was made of "one beaten work of pure gold. And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof" (Ex. 25:36,37). It was to be of one piece because this is one Solar System. The lamps represented Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Earth was in the middle. The Sun was represented by the western lamp that was to always be lit. Heaven is represented by the Eastern lamp. Their concentric orbits were represented by the semicircular branches.
Incoming Email Re: Million thanks
Dear Marilyn, you are very welcome for the copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls. I think that the Lord made us to have companionship forever, and in His deep wisdom, fashioned our minds so that we can learn forever. This is only the beginning of our knowledge, as we struggle to discern truth in this present world. I hope this book will open new doors for you. As for me, The War Scroll grabbed my attention. I have been following the events of the Arabs' activity in the "Solomon's Stables" area of the Temple Mount, which is racheting up the tensions there. The Temple Institute has just completed a gold replica of the Temple Menorah, dipped into a vat of molten gold, and around six feet tall. It must be breathtaking to behold. The purity of what we are going to behold in the presence of the Lord is beyond comprehension. No wonder flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; we could not contain the glory in our present state. Stay well; have you read anything about olive leaf extract? I just received a booklet in the mail about it, but haven't read it yet. Blessings to all your family. With love
My reply I sure appreciate this book. I have been having fun reading. As usual, I skipped all over the place before settling down to read it from the first.
Early man knew so much more than they have been given credit for. On p. 78, Noah says, "Then I began to cultivate the earth together with all my sons. I planted a large vineyard at Mt. Lubar, and in the fourth year it produced wine for me. [...] When the first festival came, on the first day of that first festival--that of the [seventh] month--[...] [I began to enjoy the fruit] of my vineyard."
The Flood was in 1656 AH. Add the 1 year the Flood lasted and these 4 years before he got wine. That is 1661 AH, from Adam's creation. The Exodus and the giving of the Law to Moses was not until 2513 AH, 852 years in the future. Yet Noah knew about clean and unclean animals, how to make an altar and sacrifice on it, and how to keep the "festival," which seems to be the Feast of Trumpets.
What would be even more astonishing would be that he kept it on the first day of the "SEVENTH" month. I did a double take there, for Tishri was not the seventh month until the Exodus. That is, until I noticed that "[seventh]" was a word supplied by the translators. They forgot that Tishri was the first month until the Exodus. They put in a word from their own understanding and from a different era that I doubt that Noah would have said.
On the next page Abraham "read to them the [Book] of the Words of Enoch." They had at least one book before the Bible was written. My guess is that they mad more than that.
We go to school 12 years and come out able to write a book. Adam was in the Garden of Eden 40 years. The Lord must have taught him a lot when he walked with him in the garden in the cool of the day. I wouldn't be surprised if Adam wrote a book. He was able to name the animals right away, so he could talk right away. After the Lord made Eve, Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man" (Gen. 2:23). That's a pretty good statement to come out of his mouth on that day.
Another thing that caught my eye is on p. 311. In giving the priestly courses, it says, "On the first day (Sunday) of the course of Jeshua is the Feast of Weeks." I thought that was a pretty neat tie in.
Lu. 1:5 tells us that Zacharias served in "the course of Abia." On p. 310 in the book, it says, "[On the second day (Monday) of the course of Abijah is the] thir[tieth day of the lunar month, on the] twenty-fifth day of the eighth solar month." The conception of John the Baptist can be reckoned from this date.
Their calendar was lunar, and fell behind 10 days each year. They let it go until in the third year. Then they would catch it up with the solar year by adding one 30-day month. They reckoned the solar year as having 364 days.
Interesting stuff, although the Psalms written by the teacher of righteousness didn't really say much for all those words. If Christ had been saying that, it would have been packed with information. I had to grin every time the teacher said, "I am a vessel of clay." He kinda drove that one in the ground. Agape
