God's picture book, "THE WAY," written in the stars
by M.J. Agee
Christ said, "I have foretold you all things" (Mark 13:23)
Part 3 of 3
GEMINI, Heb. THAUMIN (THE UNITED), in the Denderah Zodiac, CLAUSTRUM HOR (THE PLACE OF HIM WHO COMETH) i.e., Heaven is where Jesus went to "prepare a place" for us that where he is, we may be also (Jn. 14:2)
In Hebrew, Arabic and Syriac, the names of this sign carry the idea of completion, as in the COMPLETION OF A BETROTHAL. This pair is the Bridegroom and the Bride at the time of the Pre-Trib Rapture. He has his arm around her waist. She has the lyre, symbol of the redeemed, and is one that sings the new song after the Rapture ( Rev. 7:9). In the older Zodiacs, he also has a branch in one hand, showing that he is THE BRANCH.
It looks like GEMINI is the sign of the Rapture. The sun enters GEMINI May 21 and leaves Jun 21. I think the Rapture will take place on Pentecost, while the sun is in GEMINI.
This pair is sitting on Heaven (Saturn), which is on the ecliptic. The male figure on the left has ORION's club in his hand, showing that he represents the same person as ORION, Christ. ARIES, TAURUS, PERSEUS, AURIGA, ORION, AND GEMINI are all connected, showing that they all represent Christ. He is also called HERCULES, who represents Christ too. The pair is pictured as resting peacefully, SEATED TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES. Eph. 2:6 says that he "hath raised us up together (at the Rapture), and made us SIT TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS." The Bride also has a weapon, but is not using it yet. That awaits the Second Advent and Armageddon.
Psa. 149:4-9 says, "the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them SING aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints."
Stars: CASTOR (Gr. and Latin, THE RULER or JUDGE, a multiple system of six stars, man's number), POLLUX (WHO COMES TO LABOR AND SUFFER, rich yellow orange), AL HENAH, in his foot, (HURT), MEBSUTA (Heb., TREADING UNDERFOOT), HERCULES (WHO COMETH TO LABOUR, this name showing that HERCULES and the figure seated on the left in GEMINI both represent Christ), WASAT (Ar., APPOINTED TO RULE), AL DIRA (Ar., THE SEED or BRANCH), AL GIAUZA (THE PALM BRANCH), PROPUS (THE BRANCH SPREADING)
In Acts 28:11, Paul sailed on a ship, "which had WINTERED in the isle, WHOSE SIGN WAS CASTOR AND POLLUX" (i.e., GEMINI). Therefore, this ship and the ship ARGO, with its Ram's head and face representing Christ on it at the water line, both probably have the same sign, GEMINI.
Song of Sol. 4:16: "Awake, O north wind (cold); and come, thou SOUTH (warm); BLOW UPON MY GARDEN, THAT THE SPICES THEREOF MAY FLOW OUT (the Rapture). Let my beloved (Christ) come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits."
Song of Sol. 2:10-13: "My beloved (Christ) SPAKE, and said unto me, RISE UP, my love, my fair one, and COME AWAY (the Rapture). 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 IS COME (symbol, LYRA), and the VOICE of the turtle (lit., turtledove, Spirit of Christ) is heard in our land (from April to October); The fig tree 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 Christ), in the SECRET ('places' is not in the original) OF THE STAIRS" (as Jacob's ladder went from Earth to Heaven).
Sivan is the third month. It is after the winter has passed. Pentecost is Sivan 6 and 7 (June 9,10, 2000).
DECANS OF GEMINI
1. LEPUS, anciently, the snake (erroneously, a hare), ARNEBO (Heb., THE ENEMY OF HIM THAT COMETH)
Stars: R LEPORIS (called THE CRIMSON STAR, one of the reddest we know), ARNEBO (THE ENEMY OF HIM THAT COMETH), SUGIA (THE DECEIVER), NIHAL (THE MAD), RAKIS (THE BOUND, AS BY A CHAIN)
2. CANIS MAJOR, a large dog (THE PRINCE COMING, anciently, THE PRINCE ENTHRONED) who is the enemy of LEPUS, anciently the snake, now a hare, but still enemies
Stars: brightest star in the sky, SIRIUS (THE PRINCE, GUARDIAN, VICTORIOUS), its binary is called The Pup; NAZ-SEIR or NAZIR (THE SENT PRINCE, i.e., the Nazarine), MIRZAM (THE RULER OR PRINCE), MULIPHEN (THE LEADER, CHIEFTAIN), WESEN (SHINING, ILLUSTRIOUS, SCARLET), ADHARA (THE GLORIOUS) and AL HABOR (THE MIGHTY), SHIRA AL JEMENIYA (THE PRINCE OF THE RIGHT HAND)
3. CANIS MINOR, PROCYON (THE REDEEMER, SAVIOUR, or REDEEMED) the glorified saints following after their exalted Redeemer, Christ
Stars: PROCYON (REDEEMED, has faint companion like SIRIUS), SEBAK (CONQUERING, VICTORIOUS), AL SHIRA AL SHEMELIYA (THE PRINCE OF THE LEFT HAND, i.e., as Castor, picturing the redeemed in GEMINI), AL GOMESA (Arabic, BURDENED or BEARING FOR OTHERS)
CANCER (Ar., from KHAN (THE TRAVELER'S RESTING PLACE, i.e., Heaven) and KER or CER (ENCIRCLED, as Saturn is encircled by rings, pictured by the crab's claws), in Coptic, KLARIA (THE CATTLE FOLDS (plural), THE RESTING PLACES), AL SARTAN (Ar., WHO HOLD or BINDS), KARKINOS (Gr., THE CRAB HOLDING AND ENCIRCLING THE POSSESSION), pictured as a many legged crab, which in hieroglyphics represents a multitude
Eze. 1:26-28: "as the appearance of a SAPPHIRE stone...it (Heaven, symbol 'SAPPHIRE,' DEAR TO THE PLANET SATURN) had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."
CANCER seems to represent the Body of Christ that is made up of a multitude in Heaven, our resting place. Maybe it represents the assembly in Heaven on the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord. Both sheepfolds and the ship ARGO are its decans (which means PARTS). It circles on the ecliptic, as Saturn does. This sign is the one preceding LEO, and we are in Heaven before the Second Advent. LEO and CANCER touch, indicating a connection between the two. Christ is the King whose throne is in Heaven. CANCER and GEMINI almost touch, teaching the same thing.
It looks to me like GEMINI, the sign before CANCER, represents the first Rapture. Then Cancer would be the sign of the great assembly in Heaven after the Rapture.
Rev. 11:15-19 speaks of this day. It says, "there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats (thrones), fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come (the Second Advent is still future); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come (because the united nations' army is attacking Israel, Eze. 38), and the time of the dead, that they should be judged (the Judgment Seat of Christ), and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (the ark had in it two stone tablets): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."
CANCER seems to represent the "one fold" of Jn. 10:16.
Stars: ACUBENE (Heb. and Ar., THE SHELTERING or HIDING PLACE, THE PLACE OF RETIREMENT, THE GOOD REST), (also known as TEQMINE (THE FOLD or HOLDING), MA'ALAPH (Ar., ASSEMBLED THOUSANDS, THE KIDS OR LAMBS); AL HIMAREIN (ASSEMBLED THOUSANDS, THE KIDS OR LAMBS), ASSELLUS BOREAS (Oriental, THE NORTHERN ASS), ASELLUS AUSTRALIS (THE SOUTHERN ASS), and AL HIMAREIN (Ar., THE KIDS or LAMBS). A star cluster is PRAESEPE (Heb., THE MULTITUDE, THE OFFSPRING), also called THE BEEHIVE, it has 100's of stars
All this seems to indicate a time when ALL Christians will be safe in our heavenly home, orbiting along the ecliptic.
DECANS (parts) OF CANCER
1. THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD, KOCHAB (Heb., WAITING HIM WHO COMETH), ARCAS, or ARCTOS, from which we get arctic, means THE STRONGHOLD OF THE SAVED or in Latin, THE TRAVELLING COMPANY). In our days it is called URSA MINOR, whose bright star is CYNOSURA (THE CENTER), i.e., POLARIS, the Pole Star now
THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD represents the group to be caught up at the Pre-Trib Rapture.
Seven stars outline what we call THE LITTLE DIPPER. In the Preview of the Pre-Trib Rapture, Rev. 16 says, "And he had in his right hand SEVEN STARS." The seven stars are called SEPTENTRIONES (THE SEVEN WHICH TURN), which in Latin means NORTH.
At present, the Pole Star, POLARIS, is the outermost star of the handle. Around it, all the stars rotate. It is also named AL RUCCABA, (THE TURNED or RIDDEN ON). It becomes obvious that when God's Zodiac was drawn up, AL RUCCABA was meant to become the Pole Star in our days. To the Greeks, it was CYNOSURE (HIGH IN RISING, THE CENTER i.e., in heavenly position). The LESSER SHEEPFOLD is to be high in heavenly position. This is the little flock.
There are 24 stars in this constellation, representing the 24 elders of Rev. 4:4.
Other stars: AL PHERKADAIN (Ar., THE CALVES or THE YOUNG, Hebraically, THE REDEEMED) and AL GEDI (THE KID, THE CHOSEN OF THE FLOCK), AL KAID (THE ASSEMBLED, THE GATHERED TOGETHER), KOCHAB (Heb., WAITING HIM WHO COMETH). That is fitting, for THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD travels around the Pole Star, and I think it represents the first group to be raptured.
Jn. 10:2-16 says, "He that entereth not by the door ('open door,' Rev. 3:8) into THE SHEEPFOLD, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the THE SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP. To him the porter openeth; and THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and LEADETH THEM OUT. And when he PUTTETH FORTH his own sheep, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM (the Pre-Trib Rapture): for they know his voice....I am the door: by me if any MAN enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go IN AND OUT, and find pasture....I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep....And OTHER SHEEP I HAVE (Tribulation saints), WHICH ARE NOT OF THIS FOLD (not of THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD): THEM ALSO I MUST BRING (those of THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD), and they shall HEAR MY VOICE (at the Pre-Wrath Rapture); and there SHALL BE ONE FOLD, and one shepherd."
A star IN THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD is DUBHEH LACHAR (THE LATTER HERD or FLOCK), as distinguished from a FORMER HERD or FLOCK IN THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD.
Psa. 40:1-3: "I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He BROUGHT ME UP (the Rapture) also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay (body of clay), and set my feet upon a ROCK (Saturn), and established my goings. And he hath put a NEW SONG (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."
2. THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD, ARCTOS (THE STRONGHOLD OF THE SAVED), which we call URSA MAJOR, (Heb., ASH, THE ASSEMBLED, AL NAISH (Ar., THE ASSEMBLED TOGETHER, AS SHEEP IN A FOLD) i.e., the multitude that is to be caught up at the Pre-Wrath Rapture
ASH is translated as Arcturus in the KJV. This shows that there is a connection between BOOTES (also called ARCTURUS from the star ARCTURUS in his knee), the good shepherd, and THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD. His sickle is to harvest those of THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD. AISH (or ASH) means a COMMUNITY, FLOCK or CONGREGATION. One of the stars in the "handle" of what we call THE BIG DIPPER is BENET NAISH (Ar., THE DAUGHTERS OF AISH, THE DAUGHTERS OF THE ASSEMBLY), the flock going out to BOOTES, the good shepherd and his sickle.
ARCTOS, applied to both sheepfolds, in its oriental elements, connects with ENCLOSURE, THE ASCENDING, THE HAPPY, THE GOING UP UPON THE MOUNTAINS. I think THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD represents the Pre-Wrath Rapture.
This sheepfold is also said to have seven principal stars. The brightest star is DUBHE (A FLOCK OF ANIMALS). In Heb., Dohver is a fold, Dohveh is rest and security. In Chaldee, Dohver meant wealth. Since the Heb. Dohv is a bear, the sign became confused, but no bear has the long tail drawn on these bears.
Other stars: MERACH (Heb., THE FLOCK, Ar., PURCHASED), PHACDA (VISITED, GUARDED or NUMBERED, as the 144,000 of Israel are numbered in Rev. 7), ALIOTH (A SHE GOAT), MIZAR (GUARDED OR ENCLOSED PLACE), in the middle of the "handle," AL COR (THE LAMB), also called AL KAID (THE ASSEMBLED), in the end of the "handle," TALITHA (GIRL), Jesus said, "Talitha cumi" when he raised a 12-year old girl from the dead), EL ALCOLA (Ar., THE SHEEPFOLD), CAB'D AL ASAD (MULTITUDE OF THE ASSEMBLED), ANNAISH (THE ASSEMBLED), MEGREZ (SEPARATED), EL KAPHRAH (PROTECTED, COVERED, in Heb., REDEEMED and RANSOMED), DUBHEH LACHAR (Ar., THE LATTER FLOCK), HELIKE (COMPANY OF TRAVELERS), AL KAIAD (THE ASSEMBLED), EL KAPHRAH (THE PROTECTED, THE COVERED, THE REDEEMED), AMAZA (Gr., COMING AND GOING), DUBHEH (HERD OR FOLD) and CALISTO (THE SHEEPFOLD SET or APPOINTED).
In Job 9:9 and 38:32, "ARCTURUS" is in Heb. ASH or AYISH (TO HASTEN, from the Syriac, it means TO ASSEMBLE, GATHER TOGETHER). It refers the THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD instead of what we think of as ARCTURUS (BOOTES). Job 38:32 says, "Arcturus with his sons." The "sons" are the three stars in the handle of what we call THE BIG DIPPER. In the old drawings of THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD, those stars are in three sheep heading for the sickle in the good shepherd's hand.
Another place that the Heb. ASH appears is in BOOTES (from the Heb. BO, THE COMING ONE) the shepherd. That is where the huge gamma ray burster appeared Jan. 23, 1999. The word "Ash" is the Heb. for Arcturus in Job 9:9 and 38:32. It ties Bootes (also called ARCTURUS), the shepherd with the sickle in his hand in with the GREATER SHEEPFOLD.
Rev. 14:15,16 says, "Thrust in thy SICKLE, and REAP: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the HARVEST OF THE EARTH IS RIPE. And he (Christ, the 'one like unto the Son of man') that sat on the cloud thrust in his SICKLE on the earth; and the earth was reaped" (the Pre-Wrath Rapture). This is not the day of the Second Advent, which is seven months in the future (Eze. 39:12), but the day they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky (Mt. 24:30).
Isa. 26:20,21; 27:1 says, "COME, MY PEOPLE (the Pre-Wrath Rapture), enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of HIS PLACE to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity (as LEO)...In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong SWORD (symbol, PERSEUS) shall PUNISH LEVIATHAN (Satan) THE PIERCING (lit., fugitive, fleeing) SERPENT (symbol, HYDRA), even leviathan that crooked serpent (lit., tortuous, from: wrest; symbol, SERPENS); and he shall slay THE DRAGON (symbol, DRACO) that is in the sea" (nations, Rev. 17:15).
Psa. 27:5: "For in the time of trouble (Day of God's Wrath) he shall hide me in HIS PAVILION (cok, tabernacle): in the secret (his dwelling place is the third heaven, II Cor. 12:2-4) of his tabernacle (ohel, tent, AS CLEARLY SEEN FROM A DISTANCE; we can see Saturn) shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a ROCK" (Saturn).
Jn. 10:18: "And OTHER SHEEP (the Tribulation saints) I HAVE, WHICH ARE NOT OF THIS FOLD (not of THE LESSER SHEEPFOLD): THEM ALSO I MUST BRING, and they (of THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD) shall HEAR MY VOICE (at the Pre-Wrath Rapture); and there SHALL BE ONE FOLD, and one shepherd."
3. ARGO, the ship, (A COMPANY OF TRAVELERS), represents Christ as the Saviour who will bring us into a safe harbor, just as the Ark did in Noah's day)
Attached to the top of the mast is a BAND, tying it in with the fish in PISCES, to AURIGA, the good shepherd, to ORION and to CEPHEUS, the King of kings. On the prow is the Ram's head (the Lamb of God, ARIES), and down under it, just above the water line, is a face that represents Christ's face.
ARGO is a huge constellation, with 64 stars, but in Kircher's Egyptian Planisphere, ARGO is represented by TWO SHIPS, just as there are TWO SHEEPFOLDS. Both prows have the ram's head. One stern ends in a fish's TAIL (the resurrected CHRIST, as in CAPRICORNUS). One is in the segment of the sphere from TAURUS to VIRGO, the other from LEO to CAPRICORNUS. One half of the southern meridians is occupied by these two ships. Both are marked with symbols of Christ. I think they represent the two Raptures.
I would like to see a picture of these two ships in Kircher's Egyptian Planisphere. Since ARGO has the face of Christ on it, I expect the far end of the other one to have the fish tail that depicts his resurrection, and ours. Both are part of one Body of Christ.
Bullinger tells us on p. 159, "Astronomers tell us that they (the two galleys) carry us back, the one to the period when the Bull opened the year...and the other to the same epoch, when the summer solstice (June 22, to begin summer in the northern hemisphere) was in Leo." It is now as the Sun leaves GEMINI and enters CANCER.
Mt. 24:32,33: "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that SUMMER IS NIGH: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things (Israel back in the land and growing leaves), know that it (the Rapture) is near, even at the doors." It looks to me like GEMINI is the sign of the Rapture. The sun is in GEMINI from May 21 to Jun 21. PENTECOST is in that month.
Seiss, p. 128, says that "It is the old ship of Zion landed in the heavenly port." The ship is thought to represent the raptured saints when it finally docks. It reminds us of Noah's Ark and those it saved.
Stars: CANOPUS or CANOBUS (THE POSSESSION OF HIM WHO COMETH), MARKAB (RETURNING FROM AFAR, i.e., from Heaven), SEPHINA (Heb., THE MULTITUDE or ABUNDANCE), TUREIS (THE POSSESSION), SOHEOL (Ar., THE DESIRED), SUBILON (THE BRANCH) and AMIDISKA (THE RELEASED WHO TRAVEL). That suggests the Rapture.
the Eta Carinae Nebula, in ETA CARINA (THE KEEL), had greatly increased its brightness when the NEW STAR, NOVA VELORUM was seen May 22, 1999 in VELA (THE SAILS). The sails are reefed. The ship is backing into the dock. All this makes the return of Christ from afar (Heaven) seem soon.
PUPPIS (THE POOP), nestles in the Milky Way. It is sailing in the Milky Way. VELA (THE SAILS), span the Milky Way. CARINA, THE KEEL, has a large cross called The False Cross to distinguish it from CRUX. In other words, Jesus won't die this time. Nevertheless, the ship is marked by a cross.
The Bride of Christ is made up of wise virgins. When the WISE men saw the new star, they travelled to Jerusalem to seek Christ when he was in a house. Maybe that when we saw the new stare, we were nearing the time to travel to New Jerusalem. The story of the wise men may have some bearing on our travelling to New Jerusalem and to Christ at the Rapture. From May 22, 1999 to May 22, 2001 is two years since the new star appeared. If the Tribulation starts on Sivan 6, May 28, 2001, Pentecost, I think we have to be gone by then. The last Pentecost in this span is Sivan 6,7, 5760 (our June 9,10, 2000). Sivan 7 falls on Saturday (SATURNS' DAY), the Sabbath. Heb. for Saturn is Shabbatai. Sabbath is Shabbat--sounds like good clues to me.
What gifts did the wise men bring Christ? gold, frankincense and myrhh. The Laodiceans are told to buy of Him gold (a symbol of Deity). Herod "enquired of them (the wise men) diligently what time the star appeared" (Mt. 2:7) and then had the children two years and under killed in Bethlehem. Joseph was warned by the angel of the Lord (Christ) in a dream, saying "ARISE." They AROSE IN THE NIGHT, and "DEPARTED" (Mt. 2:13,14), as we will do at the Rapture.
In the water by the ship ARGO are two fish. VOLANS, a flying fish, is near the ship. Larger and farther from the ship is DORADO. The SUPER NOVA 1987-A, in the LARGER MAGELLANIC CLOUD, appeared in 1987 right in front of the eyes of DORADO, but like those in THE GREATER SHEEPFOLD, she didn't get the message. It was probably a signal to get in the net (RETICULUM).
LEO, ARIEH (Heb., THE LION TEARING or RENDING), ARYO (THE RENDING LION), AL ASAD (Ar., A LION COMING VEHEMENTLY, LEAPING FORTH AS A FLAME), KNEM (WHO CONQUERS), PI MENTEKEON (Eg., THE POURING OUT), in the Denderah Zodiac, he is treading upon a serpent
Star pattern not to be missed: significant SICKLE in head and mane. Rev. 14:18,19: "Thrust in thy sharp SICKLE, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth... And the angel (angel of the Lord, the Son of man, v. 14) thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepres of the wrath of God."
LEO is the full-grown lion that represents Christ as the powerful King, the Lion of Judah (Rev. 5:5) taking over. He is the Lion of Judah in the Bible, and he is the Lion of Judah in the Zodiac, for this sign is assigned to Judah (Leo - Judah - July 23-Aug 22 - Judah camped on the EAST). The wise men saw the new star in the EAST, i.e., in LEO.
Stars: REGULUS (Heb., THE TREADING UNDERFOOT, called the KING STAR, a double, also called COR LEONIS, THE LION'S HEART); DENEBOLA (THE JUDGE or LORD WHO COMES QUICKLY), AL GIEBA (Ar., THE EXALTATION, in the Lion's mane, is a pair of golden yellow stars), AL SAD (HE WHO TEARS AND LAYS WASTE), PIMENTEKEON (THE POURER OUT OF RAGE, THE TEARER ASUNDER), LEON (THE VEHEMENTLY COMING, THE LEAPING FORTH AS A CONSUMING FIRE), ZOSMA (SHINING FORTH), MINSHIR AL ASAD (Ar., THE PUNISHING OR TEARING OF HIM WHO LAYS WASTE), DENEB AL ECED (THE JUDGE COMING WHO SEIZES), AL DAFERA (THE ENEMY PUT DOWN)
Another star is SARCAM (Heb., THE JOINING; i.e., where the two ends of the Zodiacal circle have their joining, between VIRGO and LEO.
DECANS OF LEO
1. HYDRA, largest constellation, (HE IS ABHORRED), the Sea Serpent, i.e., Satan, divided by the constellation of OPHIUCHUS into SERPENS CAPUT (THE SERPENT'S HEAD) and SERPENS CAUDA (THE SERPENT'S TAIL)
The HEAD and TAIL illustrate prophecy. Isa. 9:15 says, "The ancient and honourable, he is the HEAD; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the TAIL."
Stars: AL PHARD (Ar., THE EXCLUDED, SEPARATED, PUT AWAY), called COR HYDRAE (THE HYDRA'S HEART); MINCHIR AL SUGIA (THE PIERCING OF THE DECEIVER), AL DRIAN (THE ABHORRED)
The serpent that is the sea can try to get the fish if they do not get in Christ's net, RETICULUM.
2. CRATER (THE CUP), The cup of God's Wrath to be poured on HYDRA and all the wicked)
This Cup has 13 stars (Satan's number).
"God is the Judge. He putteth down one, and setteth up another, FOR IN THE HAND OF THE LORD THERE IS A CUP, And the wine is red; it is full of mixture, And He poureth out of the same: But the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out and drink them." Psalm 75:8
"Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, Fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their CUP." Psalm 11:6
Star: AL CHES (THE CUP)
3. CORVUS, OREB, THE RAVEN), (in the Denderah Zodiac, HER-NA (THE ENEMY BREAKING UP, FAILING), The raven tearing and devouring HYDRA
Stars: AL CHIBA (THE CURSE INFLICTED), MINCHIR AL GORAB (THE RAVEN TEARING TO PIECES)
After posting this, 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 the 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.
Also, there are about 7 months between the appearance of the new stars. Nova Velorum 1999 was seen on May 22. Nova Aquilla 1999 was seen Dec. 1. This latter one is just about 7 months before Pentecost, June 9,10, 2000.
Isa. 33:22: "the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us."
