The Countdown to 2017...

January 15, 2017

In 2017 there are two signs in the heavens approaching that are only separated by a few days, but they are not coming in a vacuum. These signs have been heralded by the tetrads of lunar eclipses that have occurred on the Lord’s Feast Days. They have also been preceded by a number of planetary conjunctions that were similar to those that occurred at the time of Jesus’ birth. The interlocking design of these signs is almost beyond our comprehension and they should be getting people’s attention. As 2017 begins, it is time to lay these all out in one summarized document (More details exist in the other works presented here).

“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.”  Revelation 12:1-2 NKJV‬‬‬


Signs of the End - Orders

On September 23, 2017 there is an alignment in the heavens that matches the Sign of the Woman in Revelation 12.  The Woman is represented by Virgo, the Virgin clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet. Above her head is Leo with nine principle stars but with three wandering stars or planets there at this very time. Mercury, Mars, and Venus are those planets. The Woman is also with child and the Planet of the Messiah—Jupiter is in the woman's belly. Since the time of the Revelation of Jesus Christ to John, no other date for 3,000 years will reproduce that sign except September 23, 2017. Even a search back 4,000 years from the time of the giving of the Revelation produces only 3915 BC. This is beyond remarkable. This match of Revelation 12 in 2017 should be enough to wake up Bible believers, but this is not the only unique sign occurring in 2017.

“In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to the LORD at its border. And it will be for a sign and for a witness to the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to the LORD because of the oppressors, and He will send them a Savior and a Mighty One, and He will deliver them.”  Isaiah 19:19-20 NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Three days prior to the Sign of the Woman, the heavens align as mapped by the Giza Pyramid Complex. Just before the sun dawns, the star in Orion's Belt that the Great Pyramid represents is exactly at meridian. Also at this moment of time, Regulus, the King Star of Leo is at the Christ Angle above the eastern horizon. What is the Christ Angle? It is the angle of the Great Pyramid’s ascending and descending passageways. That angle applied north of east from the Great Pyramid will bisect Bethlehem. So at dawn September 20, 2017, Regulus is at the Christ Angle, but so is the Morning Star/Venus because it is in conjunction with Regulus. Coincidentally, this occurs the morning before the Feast of Trumpets. This alignment has not been found to repeat in any year through the year 2200, which puts us well beyond a generation from seeing the return of Israel.

These signs of September 2017 are not alone. Planetary conjunctions similar to the time before Christ was born also occurred within the past few years and the calculations are stunning. This along with the tetrad of lunar eclipses occurring on the Festivals of the Lord in 2014-2015 produces a time like no other and we are in the middle of it with less than nine months before September 20-23, 2017. The alarms should be sounding in the many churches of the world, but are they hearing them? Are we telling them?

The Tetrads

The first set of signs and the most popular was the lunar tetrad of 2014-2015. Many have unfortunately walked away from these signs and have failed to grasp their importance. They were not a sham—just not fully understood. There have been eight lunar tetrads on the Lord’s Feasts since our Lord ascended to heaven. The last four are notable: 1493-1494, 1949-1950, 1967-1968, and 2014-2015. Let us consider each to see how they have interacted with history and the future.

The Tetrad of 1493-1494
The event of concern at this time was the Spanish Inquisition in 1492 and the resultant push to head to America by Columbus. The Spanish Inquisition was enacted on July 30, 1492 and coincided with the 9th of Av and hence another time of Jewish persecution. 777 days after this event was the final lunar eclipse of the four on Tabernacles 1494. Also, 600 days after the Inquisition enactment was the third eclipse on Passover 1494. Day counts from events to the eclipses are therefore important.

The Tetrad of 1949-1950
The event of concern at this time was the establishment of Israel on May 14, 1948. The next day war broke since Israel’s Islamic neighbors did not want the establishment of a Jewish nation. That war lasted 300 days and ended with the raising of the Ink Flag on March 10, 1949. Like the previous tetrad, the events here also occurred beforehand. However, day counts again reveal the timeliness of these signs. Here the first lunar eclipse on April 13, 1949 comes 333 days after Israel’s first day as a nation and the start of the War of Independence. April 13, 1949 also comes 33 days after the raising of the Ink Flag and the end of the war. But get this, from the end of World War 1 on 11/11/1918, it is 11,111 days until this lunar eclipse of April 13, 1949! It is also noteworthy that the end of 1967’s Six-Day-War came 6,666 days after the end of the War for Independence on March 10, 1949. Indeed, the connections get more intricate and impossible to ignore.

The Tetrad of 1967-1968
The lunar tetrad at this time actually surrounds the event of concern. Israel regained Jerusalem and the Temple Mount in the Six-Day-War on June 5-10, 1967 for the first time in nearly 1900 years. Six weeks before the war, the first lunar eclipse on Passover 1967 occurred. The final eclipse of this tetrad on October 6, 1968 (Feast of Tabernacles) came 490 days after the Six-Day-War. The final eclipse also came exactly 5 solar years before the starting day of the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Another item of note is that 666 days after the start of the Six-Day-War came Passover 1969 and the day the Knesset enacted the law to establish the JQDC to rebuild Jerusalem. Passover 1969 also came 434 years (62x7) after the decree of Suleiman the Magnificent to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in 1535 fulfilling what may be a secondary application of Daniel’s 62+7+1 weeks.

The Tetrad of 2014-2015
It wasn't until the time before this tetrad of lunar eclipses that this phenomena was starting to be understood. Most studies focused in on the eclipses and not the count of days to events around them. The first eclipse on Passover 2014 occurred 3.5 years before the Sign of the Woman of Revelation 12 on September 23, 2017. The final eclipse on September 28, 2015 occurred 2,520 weeks after the end of the Six-Day-War. It is this final eclipse that has most of the peculiar day counts.

In 2006 there was Israel’s 33-day war with Hezbollah that ended on August 14, 2006. 3,333 days later was the September 28th eclipse. However, the end of that war also came 6,666 x pi days after the first eclipse of 1949-1950 tetrad of April 13, 1949. That eclipse, as you remember, came 333 days after the establishment of Israel and 33 days after they won the war. If we also travel 3,333 days from the eclipse of September 28, 2015 into the future, we would land on November 11, 2024, which is 30 days after the Day of Atonement 2024 and 45 days before Hanukkah. November 11th is the anniversary end of World War 1. Remember, from the end of World War 1 (11/11/1918) it was 11,111 days until the eclipse of April 13, 1949. From that eclipse it is then 6,666 x pi + 6,666 days (27,607) until November 11, 2024—a day believed here to be Day 1290 (Daniel 12). There are even more “coincidences” with this final tetrad that have been documented here.

But before this discussion of the tetrads ends, there is another important aspect. The length of a tetrad from the first eclipse to the fourth is 531 days. Is it another coincidence that 531 years from the first significant tetrad beginning in 1493 is 2024? Not likely.

The Jupiter and Venus Conjunctions

While much talk of the final tetrad of 2014-2015 ensued, set at the same time were the remarkable conjunctions of Jupiter and Venus. At first the rarity of these conjunctions was not fully realized. The group of four Jupiter-Venus conjunctions that just occurred were in a unique class with the four Jupiter-Venus conjunctions before Christ’s birth. In 9,400 years of Solex data, the Jupiter-Venus conjunction of June 17, 2 BC was the closest and longest observable conjunction over that entire period. From AD 1900-2100 the closest observable conjunction of Jupiter-Venus was on August 27, 2016. These two groups of four Jupiter-Venus conjunctions in 3-1 BC and AD 2014-2016 both cover the same duration of time and both have two conjunctions each in Leo. With regards to 2014-2016, the nearest set of four conjunctions occurred in 1790-1792 and will occur in 2145-2147. At, Jim Dodge explains this and argues that out of the 9400 years of Solex data, these two groups are unique and the placement of the 2014-2016 conjunctions is no accident. As we examine them, that should become more obvious.

Jupiter-Venus August 18, 2014
This pairing occurred just before sunrise in the constellation of Cancer (the encircled, protected ones) near the Beehive (the multitude). Witnessing this firsthand on my early morning commute caused me to scramble and research its possible significance as I was totally unaware about its occurrence. It was obviously important. This conjunction occurred 360 x pi (1131) days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017. It occurred 1100 days before the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 that will cross America. It is also 700 x phi (1133) days until the Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017.

Jupiter-Venus June 30/July 1, 2015
This pair occurred in Leo just after sunset in the west. This conjunction received the most attention as it was visible when people are mostly awake. It occurred seven solar years (2,557 days) divided by pi before the Feast of Trumpets. That is 814 days.

Jupiter-Venus October 25, 2015
This pair occurred in the hind quarters of Leo before dawn in the east. It occurred 700 days before the Sign of the Woman and 666 days before America’s total solar eclipse that will occur in Leo next to Regulus. It also occurred 700 / phi (433) days after the August 18, 2014 conjunction and this pattern is reversed later as well between August 18, 2014 and the Sign of the Woman.

Jupiter-Venus August 27, 2016
This was the closest pairing that formed a near single star that was the closest to what the wise men saw. Here it was near the head of Virgo just after sunset in the west. This occurred 360 days before America’s total solar eclipse. It also occurs 400 days before the Day of Atonement 2017. Lastly, it occurs 444 days before the next Jupiter-Venus eclipse on November 13, 2017.

Jupiter-Venus November 13, 2017
This pairing will probably be too close to the sun in Virgo to see as Jupiter departs Virgo. This occurs what looks to be seven days before the start of the 70th Week of Daniel (2520 days until Atonement 2024). It also occurs seven solar years before what looks to be Day 1290 from the middle of the 70th Week.  This  conjunction also occurs 777 days after the final eclipse of 2014-2015’s lunar tetrad on September 28, 2015.

Other Conjunctions

August 7, 2015. Jupiter-Mercury-Regulus formed an equilateral triangle. This event occurred 777 days before the Feast of Trumpets 2017 and one lunar year after the August 18, 2014 conjunction. In an interesting similarity, 777 days after the war between Hezbollah and Israel had ended on August 14, 2006 was the Feast of Trumpets 2008. Just as the Feast of Trumpets began in Israel in 2008, the stock market in the USA collapsed 777.7 points. Seven years and 777 days later is the Jupiter-Venus Conjunction of November 13, 2017, which looks to be 7 days before the 70th Week of 2,520 days. Follow the sevens!

July 17, 2016.  Venus-Mercury conjunct near the Beehive in Cancer just like the August 18, 2014 conjunction. This occurred 700 / phi days (433) before the Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017. It also occurred 700 days after the Jupiter-Venus conjunction on August 18, 2014. This is the second set of 700 + 700 / phi, which is equal to 700 x phi.  July 17, 2016 and October 25, 2015 are then both the phi points between the first Jupiter-Venus conjunction on August 18, 2014 and the Sign of the Woman. On July 17, two days after Erdogan suppressed the attempted military coup against his rule in Turkey, he began reconciliation with Russia, which was a critical step towards Ezekiel 38-39.

Therefore, the lunar tetrads and conjunctions play their supporting role in pointing to the Feast of Trumpets and the Sign of the Woman that are coming this year. This would be September 21st and 23rd respectively. The alignment of the Great Pyramid comes the morning of September 20th.  The rarity of the signs and the linkage should bring no question to their importance. These signs will not occur again anytime soon and one is spelled out clearly in the final book of the Bible. As Jesus said, there would be signs in the heavens, and if these are not them, then what else could we possibly be looking for? In the end there are no alternatives.

The Revelation 12 Sign of the Woman has been there in the text for all to read for nearly two thousand years. It is the only great sign mentioned in the Bible. That should be a big hint and a hint we all failed to see until very recently. It has been a neon flashing sign so big that it was missed in plain sight. The problem was that many saw this sign as a picture before Jesus was born, but no such alignment occurs then. It is also not an allegory of non-conclusive heavenly imagery to make Revelation colorful. It is a sign in the physical heavens and it is in just a few months.

The Revelation 12 Sign occurs in the “after these things” portion of Revelation, which happens after the Church passages of Chapters 2-3 or “the things which are”. This is then a future sign physically in the heavens concerning the final time. Revelation 12 is a unique part of the Book of Revelation as it comes after the seven seals and seven trumpets with the kingdoms of the world becoming Christ’s. The end of chapter 11 describes the end of the seven-year 70th Week. Chapter 12 begins another perspective of Revelation and the Sign of the Woman lays out the overall salvation plan of God from the beginning. The Woman represents Israel whose Seed is the Messiah. The Sign of the Woman on September 23, 2017 then fits with Micah 5 where Israel is given up until the Woman gives birth again.

““But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.” Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; Then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel.” Micah 5:2-3 NKJV‬‬‬‬‬

Notice how our Lord gives up the children of Israel until she who is in labor has given birth and then the remnant of Israel returns. This giving up period is the duration of the Church and the Church has not replaced Israel. So the question then is, what is this birth? Is it merely this Sign of Revelation 12 or is the birth that of the corporate Body of Christ when the Church is transformed at the Rapture? The  time we are truly born again, as blood and flesh cannot inherit the Kingdom of God? The child in Revelation 12:4 is taken (harpazo) to be delivered from the Dragon who brings the Antichrist. Is that not what the Rapture is about? Christ was not taken to heaven to be delivered. He gave His life for us and effectively crushed the Serpent’s head. It would seem this Sign of Revelation 12 speaks of Corporate Israel bringing forth the Corporate Body of Christ that is taken to heaven before the Nation of Israel endures the final hour.  

This sign in the heavens then appropriately looks to mark this transition and transformation. September 20-23 is then a great moment to pay attention. On September 20, the alignment of the Great Pyramid speaks to the coming of our wounded Savior as the Morning Star-King on the morning before the observed day for the Feast of Trumpets—the Last Trump to which Paul referred to as the time of the Church’s gathering by resurrection. It is the opinion here the observed calendar is correct since many events and calculations have occurred according to the observed calendar. But again, we are talking merely a two day difference between the 21st and the 23rd of September. Trying to nail down the exact moment is in the end difficult to do. It would seem wise to not be so concerned over the fine details and realize that three days is still a pretty narrow focus for the transition. We can probably watch all of these days.

So it would appear the Sign of the Woman signals the soon onset of the 70th Week of Daniel. This Sign is not going to happen for at least another 1,000 years. In the end this comes down to faith and consideration of what all points to these dates. It would seem to behoove us all to take the possibilities, at least, seriously. These signs of 2017 again do not occur in a vacuum. They have support from the Lunar Tetrads and Conjunctions, as well as the progression of events in the world centered around Israel. It is the time.

We may be down to our final weeks as the Church to witness to the remainder of the world that is lost. However, the world does seem to know that all is not well and doomsday approaches. Indeed it is. The question comes down to what a person does with Jesus and the gift he offered through his death on the cross. Whatever point of history we are in, that is the question. That is the bottom line. Believing in Christ and accepting his gift of pure grace is what will deliver us. It is the only thing that can save us. We will soon see that the world cannot save itself. Scripture promises that it will soon be humanity's darkest hour. Those who believe now will be taken to be with the Lord in likely a few short months. The rest will then have to endure the coming dark hour and many will decide. Now is the time of salvation. Our Lord will soon reign over the Earth.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17 NKJV
