Signs of the End - Orders
October 10, 2017

While the sun was setting in Jerusalem on August 21, 2017, the Great American Eclipse began that Monday morning. The path of totality crossed seven Salems (original name for Jerusalem) beginning in the 33rd State of Oregon and exiting South Carolina at the 33rd Parallel. The eclipse path would end at the location of Tropical Storm Harvey. Four days later Harvey became a Category 4 Hurricane and threatened Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) went largely unscathed by relative comparison to the rest of the area impacted by the hurricane.

As many more disasters unfolded in the following weeks, the next item on the signs list was the Great Pyramid’s Christ Angle and its coming alignment to Regulus and Venus in conjunction as well as Jupiter in Virgo. This sign set the stage for the Feast of Trumpets and the Revelation 12 Sign. All these signs pointed to this current season. People often say we can know the season and hopefully many are still taking notice. The season is the 40 days of Repentance that includes the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement. All of these elements had day counts from other astronomical events such as the blood moons and planetary conjunctions, as well as significant historical events involving Israel. All of the evidence was correct with precision—yet, we are still here.

In the last article concerning Shemini Atzeret, known as the 8th Day, it is believed this may be the day of the Last Trump and the most likely day of the Rapture. That is in just a few days. While working through the Feast of Tabernacles there have been some very striking alignments in the heavens. One was shared on the Signs of the End Facebook page a few days ago. And here it is:

“Seven weeks since the solar eclipse, this is the location of the moon—the Hyades in Taurus. Taurus in the Hebrew is Shur. Shur means “coming and ruling”. According to Bullinger, Taurus begins the final book meaning “the coming judge of all the earth”. The next three constellations of that book are Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. The moon will be in the grouping of the Hyades, which means “the congregated”. The Pleiades are also in Taurus and it means “the congregation of the judge or ruler”. In the Syriac, the name for Pleiades is Succoth–that’s right, “booths”. And here we are in the midst of the Feast of Booths. The Seven Churches of Revelation also seem to map out the Pleiades by the location of the cities of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.

This screen shot to the left is the position of the moon at 8am EDT / 5 am PDT on October 9th. The moon will spend the next 7 hours in the Hyades. The precise end of the seven weeks ends in this time frame.”

So, exactly seven weeks to the minute, the moon is in the midst of the Hyades. The moon began this process in Hyades on the fourth day of Tabernacles–the middle day. This would seem appropriate since the moon was in the midst of a key component of Taurus which also holds the Pleiades, meaning both “the booths” and “the Seven Churches”. The striking map is on the lower left. What does it mean? We, the Church, are right in schedule at this time. In fact, with the fulfillment of the 7 weeks of Daniel 9:25 (7 x 7 x 360) to the very day this summer, it is appropriate that we have another period of seven right to the middle of the seven days.

Just before the start of the Feast of Tabernacles, Mars and Venus came into conjunction on October 5th. This is also not a common thing to occur right before the Feast just like most of the other things that have occurred. The planet of the Messianic Splendor (Venus) joined with the planet for war (Mars) would be appropriate for what is soon coming.

However, the is another positioning of the moon that occurs on the eighth day during Shemini Atzeret that is after the seven days of Tabernacles. As Jupiter crosses the leg line of Virgo at about 12:00pm Central Time, the moon is getting close to the Beehive in Cancer.  This is shown in the diagram to the lower left. The Beehive is known as M44 Praesape, which means “the multitude”. Cancer in various languages of the Near East define it as “encircling or protecting”. The alpha star in Cancer is Acubene, which in the Hebrew and Arabic means “sheltering” or “hiding-place”. Cancer would seem to be a picture of Isaiah 26 where we have the Rapture and hiding of the believers in their rooms until the judgment passes. Therefore, the positioning of the moon seems to continue the accuracy and meaningful position of it to the end–the last day a trumpet will sound to close out the fall festivals and call the most sacred assembly–the Body of Christ.  A trumpet to assemble us to be rescued and protected before the judgement comes.

The positioning of the moon next to the Beehive is not new as two conjunctions that honed in on this season with exact days counts also occurred next to the Beehive. The first conjunction was between Jupiter and Venus on August 18, 2014. This conjunction pointed to the Feast of Trumpets and the Sign of the Woman in Revelation 12 separately.  700 days after this conjunction came the conjunction of Venus and Mercury (July 17, 2016) next to the Beehive. 400 days after this  conjunction came the Great Solar Eclipse.

In Search of the Red Dragon...

 

One of the items that has eluded us all is, what is the counterpart Sign of the Woman of Revelation 12? We read that it is a red dragon, but how is that manifesting itself? Brad Hurst sent in the following and it is being copied and pasted below.  Being next to the fires in California prompted to rethink the Sign of the Red Dragon...

 

 

In search of the great red dragon. One of the most mystifying things about the Revelation 12 sign and it’s fulfilment on 9/23/17 is the great red dragon. It is the second wonder to be seen in heaven but is another (Strongs gk  állos, al'-los; a primary word; "else," i.e. different, in many applications:—of a different type) wonder. The sign of the dragon would be different than the sign of the woman. So where is it or has it already come?

 

I have been a student of astronomy for more than 40 years. I have made many trips to Mount Wilson and the Griffith observatory. I had my own telescopes and read many magazines journals and did some pre-grad work in the subject. I have done work in ancient astronomy with the precession of the equinoxes, read books on ancient astronomy, done course work in it and recently read Hamlet’s Mill.

 

What is telling about Hamlet’s Mill (Giorgio de Santillana MIT· Hertha von Dechend University of Frankfurt) is the ground breaking discovery that what we thought was myth (astrology) is actually a record of the ancient motions of the cosmos. They were designed to help us track the precession of the equinoxes. Yes, corruptions did find their way in (thanks to Plato), but many survive even today. Most were well known up until the middle ages and were common knowledge in biblical lands and times.

 

Originally, I was convinced it would be Nibiru and Stellarium seemed to make it fit positionally. It still may have played a part. But we could not see it. That bothered me. However, I decided to wait and work hard at NOT making something fit while waiting for more information. Then it hit me. Today’s fires reminded me of the eclipse. The daylight has been very dim all day due to the smoke. I had what to me was a revelation. I felt real stupid for it should have been realized much earlier. The following web site explains it best.

http://exploratorium.edu/eclipse-archive/dragon.htm

 

“A recurring and pervasive embodiment of the eclipse was a dragon, or a demon, who devours the sun. The ancient Chinese would produce great noise and commotion during an eclipse, banging on pots and drums to frighten away the dragon. The Incas, too, tried to intimidate the creatures who were eating the sun. In India they took a different tact — people would immerse themselves up to the neck in water, an act of worship they believed helped the sun fight off the dragon.”

 

In college I was taught by Dr. Pilkey that most myth has some connection to historical event. Hamlet’s Mill proved that a lot of it comes from scientific observations of the cosmos as recorded by the ancients. When diverse cultures have a similar myth regarding a particular event it is assumed to have come from a common source.

 

In the ancient world, all over the world, from China to the Americas to India and other parts of the world, there are legends and even depictions of Dragons being associated with Solar Eclipses. As seen above eventually superstitions entered in. What bothers me is that I knew this.

 

According to Revelation 12, the sign of the great red dragon (Solar Eclipse occurs prior to the sign of the woman for it is in place ready to devour the child). It is note worthy to state that the eclipse WAS SEEN and 20 days later Nibiru also known as the dragon moved into place UNSEEN.

 

This sign according to Revelation has seven heads and ten horns, which are explained in Chapter 13 and Chapter 17 as political powers. Seven heads Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Abbasid Islam under Persia (From India to Spain) and Ottoman Islam (From the Kazaks to Vienna, and across North Africa). These territories comprise the Islamic empires and have been broken into ten state. Turkey, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon. Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan. There is flexibility on these. Three of the horns have been plucked by the roots. Iraq, Syria, Libya.

 

While one can argue the political understandings of Chapter 13 and 17 it is increasingly more certain to me that the Solar Eclipse was the sign of the dragon being that solar eclipses were associated with dragons and to talk about a dragon (Astronomically) was to be talking about a solar eclipse.

 

Here is  Persis Berlekamp, Associate Professor of Art History University of Chicago:

 

“Astrology informed a great deal of medieval Islamic art. It references the solar calendar, which in any preindustrial society, is extremely important—it tells you when to plant, when to go to war, when to lay foundations for buildings. Any court had its astrological advisors, who had their own fans and enemies.

 

One motif you see in both the art and architecture of the 12th and 13th centuries, particularly from Anatolia to Iraq, is called an eclipse dragon. It appears as a stylized knotted dragon, and it’s a reconciliation of ancient Near Eastern belief and what the astronomers of the day knew about the science of eclipses.

 

According to ancient mythology, an eclipse happened when a giant celestial dragon swallowed the sun and the moon. But the medieval astronomers knew it happened when the sun and moon and the earth all lined up. So they reconciled these ideas by creating this invisible, theoretical entity, the ‘eclipse dragon,’ moving around in the sky. When its head and tail correspond to the ‘nodes’ where the courses of the heavenly bodies cross when eclipses happen, that’s when the dragon swallows the moon and sun.

 

... It’s very different from how we think about mythology and science today. In our world, it is necessary and important that educated people uphold the boundary between them. But this is an example from another era when intelligent, educated people answered to both simultaneously. If we can get our heads around that, it really expands our understanding of the range of ways art has mattered in the long, varied, history of human experience.”

Therefore, according to this, the Red Dragon of Revelation 12 was most likely represented by the Solar Eclipse that went across America. Is it any wonder then what has happened to the Americas since that time? I am just processing this at the same time it is being put on the website. This is for your immediate consideration in what looks to be our final moments. It is no wonder then that the eclipse has played such a big part in the numerical calculations because it was the other sign. All that remains then is the harpazo of the male-child...the Body of Christ.

 

 

The 21st Day of the Seventh Month

 

Tomorrow is October 12th and what looks to be the Seventh Day of Tabernacles. It is also Columbus Day, celebrating 525 years since Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. Six months after his discovery, there was a tetrad of lunar eclipses. Does it all then come full circle? If the Red Dragon was the sign of the eclipse across America, it only makes sense as America is obviously hated by the Satanic World. America does stand in the way of the coming world empire as pictured by the Sign of the Dragon and America does not play a major role during the final seven years. We have been warned.

 

Consider also Haggai (to the left) who on the Seventh Day of Tabernacles received this word of a great earthquake. Could this also refer to this day? We shall see.

 

 

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.

 

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. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

In the seventh month, on the twenty-first of the month, the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying....For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts.
