A Crash Course in Biblical Astronomy



God has revealed an incredible amount of knowledge to His people over the course of the past decade using the sun, moon, and stars.  And this information points directly to a single conclusion: the parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  I've put together a two-part video series on the signs in the heavens to give you a little glimpse into how this is indeed a biblical concept and how the signs of the past half-decade or so are telling an overarching metanarrative of the final redemption.  This is a real thing.

Some of the key points I explore:

  • Does biblical astronomy have a Scriptural basis or is the concept pagan astrology?
  • Why did God create the sun, moon, and stars?
  • Are constellations and the twelve signs of the Zodiac mentioned in Scripture?
  • What are the primary ways which God uses to communicate to His people?
  • How you can study and follow the signs yourself
  • The possible Genesis 3:15 sign of the Fall of Mankind
  • The unmistakable Star of Bethlehem
  • The astronomical aspects of the book of Revelation, literally fulfilled in the heavens, beginning in late 2016 and ending in 2027
  • Jesus holding the seven stars (Rev. 1:16, 20); the Revelation 12 Sign (Rev. 12:1–2); the casting down of Satan and his angels (Rev. 12:3–4); the resurrection, rapture, and glorification of the Church (1 Thess. 4:16–18; 2 Pt. 1:19; Rev. 12:5; Mal. 4:2–3); the rise of the antichrist (Rev. 6:1–2; 13:1–4); the seven angels holding the bowls of wrath (Rev. 15:1); and the return of Christ with His saints (Rev. 19)
  • In Part II I also discuss a possible scenario regarding Daniel 9:27 that could be playing out right now in 2020

PART I:



PART II:



Scriptures used (LSV): Gen. 1:14-15; 37:9; 49:9-10; Num. 24:17; Ps. 19:1-4; 2 Kgs. 23:5; Job 38:31-33; Amos 5:8; Mt. 2:1-10; Lk. 21:11, 25-26; 1 Thess. 4:16–17; 2 Pt. 1:19; Rev. 1:16, 20; 5:5; 6:1–2; 12:1-5; 13:1–2; 15:1; 22:16

  4. This guy Marcus Rogers echoes a lot of my thoughts lately. People are fighting what is manifesting in the flesh, and not the spiritual forces of darkness. Christians are straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel, missing the BIG picture. I don't agree with everything he says, but most of it. Some very salient points, including that the Illuminati itself isn't our enemy, but Satan and his angels are. The human elites may actually think they're doing what's right even though they are puppets being used to bring about the NWO and the antichrist.

  5. Gary, your research in the heavenly signs is amazing work. It has been a blessing to me.

    However, the anti-Christ will control all money worldwide and our founding fathers warned us about what is going on today. This is where the real evil lies and unfortunately is heavily represented inside the White House. Wilbur Ross, Steve Mnuchin and many others are Rothschild bankers and our current president was bailed out and now owned by the Rothschild western banking system and he purposely surrounded himself with them in force. Too bad Marcus Rogers can’t see this as there is such strong delusion upon us in America now as it really doesn’t matter who is in the White House anymore.

    To quote Thomas Jefferson,

    “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. The issuing power of currency shall be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered”.

    Jefferson understood banking very well and predicted our current and corrupt banking environment. Central banks worldwide have done more to rob the working class than any politician by inflation (like stock market), deflation (when it crashes) and the financialization of assets through globalism. Our political system relies heavily on voting politicians in and out, however, Central bankers are not subject to the same populace vote (and USA did not have a Central bank system until 1913). The way the founding fathers set up the banking system and most importantly currency control was set through the gold standard and required Congress to set debt levels when needed like in times of war. Our Fed system now bypasses that important control mechanism by creating money out of thin air digitally not tied to anything and may end up bringing the entire worldwide financial system to its knees in the next few years if not sooner.

    1. Thank you John. And I think it's clear money is tied to damnation in the sense that it will be the love of money and a lack of faith in God that will cause many to submit to the mark.

  6. Obviously Gary I know a little something about money, central and worldwide banking. However, as stated in Matthew 6.24, “no one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon”. Relative to Marcus Rogers video, he doesn’t realize that our current president who loves money more than anything is tipping the bottle as fast or even faster than our previous president. The destruction being caused by our FED and Treasury of the American dollar as the world’s reserve currency will unleash a worldwide depression that typically starts or leads to war (white horse Sagittarius?). To me that would be the last restraint currently in place prior to the unveiling of the anti-Christ leading the world out of a depression, war, famine and disease enabling the control of all money worldwide.

    Regardless and back to your video, what really stuck out with me because of my background is the Libra constellation if I’m not mistaken are scales that always refers to money. If so being the next constellation after Virgo would make total sense assuming the first thing to happen is the collapse of the western banking system that almost happened in March (we were that close) and is a precursor in so many ways plunging the world into a depression unlike ever before.

    I cannot believe Libra is the next constellation if I followed your video correctly. Wow and would make total sense to me.

    So my question what timeline does the crossing of Libra occur?

    1. With the seals being very early in the Trib, check out Rev. 6:5-6. The third seal. The rider on a black horse is carrying...... SCALES. Famine and depression quickly ensue.

    2. Wow just wow Gary. We all come from different backgrounds but the scales hit me pretty hard with the constellation Libra in your video and what I know about the inner workings of Central Banks - the principalities of arrogance and outright lying is downright evil at these institutions. They just don’t care about the working class and only care about the top 1% from which they come from - not only now but repeating itself throughout history. The financial system is so fragile it just needs a final catalyst to break it down entirely. Don’t worry the top 0.1% will own it all when it all collapses lol.

      The top of my head is tingling....

      I think I found the software you use - Stellarium if I’m not mistaken. Checking it out myself.

    3. I’m not involved with finance, but I absolutely agree that we’re sitting atop a most delicate bubble. Basically, that’s been the case since 2008; since then we’ve been more or less dreading the next stiff breeze. I’ve wondered which unfortunate timing would rear its ugly head, then along comes COVID, like a shot out of the dark. Seems to me that the great powers have been waiting for a trigger, to finish the massive consolidation of wealth that was begun in the wake of 2008. Now there’s an actual need for some kind of RESET button, with all the disastrous debt load in the wake of COVID. It’s actually silly to think that this global train wreck will simply “straighten itself out”. At this point there isn’t enough possible prosperity to achieve such a thing. And everything I’ve said would apply if I weren’t a Christian, and if End Times weren’t even part of the picture.

      I’ve said it before here, but the advent of COVID was and is the most profound, unexpected, and consequential single event during the dizzying buildup of the past handful of years. That one factor has made a world of other events not only likely, but practically inevitable. But we have a blessed assurance, while the world at large waits for the next shoe to drop, and I feel that it’s on the very near horizon.

  7. I hope your right Gary, its time to go home. Im looking to see that deal get signed. That will be a major sign for me, better than any star alignment. Like you said its speculation to say that this deal is the one that gets"confirmed" or strengthened but if not now then when?

    1. "if not now then when?"

      Exactly brother. And if the final borders are indeed completed next month, thus dividing the land, it's hard to imagine any other year kicking off the Trib.

      Paul Dawson has an interesting, albeit not PC theory about how it's all about to go down this year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prmjV5nFQcs

    2. I would say that this has to be the deal that will be confirmed by the Antichrist. Vineyard America is at the end of a prophetically important 400 year biblical cycle, thus it's prophetic assignment appears to be coming to an end.

      Its figurehead president has a biblically peculiar last name that just so "happens" to be a name indicative of the rapture.

      It's getting mighty obvious up in here.

    3. Fascinating ETDD, especially when overlaid with Gary's videos showing the cyclical nature of the signs in the heavens. Thanks for sharing the link, and for the ton of work that went into that piece!

    4. Not being PC is a feather in Paul's cap. The spade is a spade. This world is travelling down a path of no return,

      5 The earth lies defiled
      under its inhabitants;
      for they have transgressed
      the laws, violated the
      statutes, broken the
      everlasting covenant.

      6 Therefore a curse devours
      the earth, and its inhabitants
      suffer for their guilt;
      therefore the inhabitants of
      the earth are scorched, and
      few men are left.

      (Isaiah 24:5-6 ESV)


      Q: Does the earth lay defiled under mankind?
      A: Yes.

      Q: Has man transgressed the laws?
      A: Yes.

      Q: Has man violated the statutes?
      A: Yes.

      Q: Has man broken the everlasting covenant?
      A: No, not fully but it's about to happen!

      Q: Did Jesus die on the cross to purchase men saving them from the wrath of G-D?
      A: Yes!


      The ONLY test we need as to our faith as individuals and the body of Christ is our simple, honest and eternal, "Yes!" to God in Christ. THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD. (John 6:29 ESV)

      We know His voice and will follow it to heaven and back into eternity!

      Until the end of the age and the stench from the smoke of her burning, that great whore, is a faint distant memory; we will be worshipping the King bathed forever in His Glory forever and ever. Amen!

      Time is short. Share the good news with the Love Christ has given you and...

      Keep looking UP!

  8. Does anyone on this website know or reported about a many times larger 4th generation plague of desert locusts hitting Africa, Pakistan and now India? The video in this British link is alarming. Predictions of world wide famine if these swarms don’t stop by the end of this year. Also there are reports about murder hornets...this is crazy if all true. No news media reports this stuff over here in US.

  10. Agreed, its probably no coincidence that we have a President "Trump" at this particular day and time. He almost ran in 2008.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, we have seen signs in the heavens with certainty that are loud & clear including the birth of Christ. In fact, the seasons for the agrarian Jews marking their feast days are pure proof of the importance of heavenly signs. That said, I see NO Biblical justification to assign significance to constellations which appear arbitrary at best. Right now the earthly signs are screaming rapture any minute having the advantage of being observed with the naked eye & leaving nothing to the imagination!!

    1. Sfg,

      A few questions as food for thought if I may?

      Do you believe in the physical and visible advent of the Bethlehem Star? (The star that the Magoi watched and followed to Bethlehem). Do you believe that the Magoi were prompted to begin their journey to Judea by a sign in the heavens? Do you believe in the physical and visible advent of the Great Sign or the subsequent signs in the heavens given us in the Revelation of Jesus Christ?

      I would submit that these are important questions to frame against the witness of the Bible and pin-points that all make an excellent Bible study.

      It's okay if the cosmos appears arbitrary to us. God placed everything in its place that His name be glorified and His will be done. It's not requisite that we understand how He does what He does; it is requisite that we believe on the One He sent who now sits at His right-hand forever in glory.

      Personally, I marvel at the story in the heavens. It is sheer poetry.

      (Psalm 19:1-4 ESV)

      Delete
    2. Yes indeed! I did mention the star at the birth of Christ. AND NO, I never said the cosmos was arbitrary. Hardly! I even recognize the blood moons. HOWEVER, zodiac figures like bulls & virgins just remind me that they may only exist in the eye of the beholder UNLESS the Bible affirmed that these constellations are indeed the figures so many affirm, then I am not convinced. I am NOT a follower of what looks like man made folklore that may or may NOT have anything to do with the majesty of the heavens! Moreover, it is not possible from earth's vantage point to actually see what God has actually created. If it was so, Carl Sagan & astronomers would be the most in awe & be the truest of believers which is not the case. SO I remain a skeptic where the zodiac is concerned unless & until these figures of animals & creatures are affirmed somewhere in the Word that I have missed.

    3. ALL APOLOGIES

      I am sorry that I misunderstood your comment sfg. All apologies.


      THE BEAR OF JOB & THE WOMAN OF REVELATION

      Our modern Bible translation refer to the Bear in (Job 9:9) but I would even submit that requires a closer look especially where the LXX and TNK are concerned. Both the LXX and TNK use different stellar objects where the Bear is indicated in modern translations.

      The stars and star clusters specifically named in the LXX and TNK in (Job 9:9) are the Pleiades, Arcturus and the chambers (constellations) of the southern hemisphere. Parts of the southern hemisphere stars were likely (if not certainly) visible during the time of Job.

      If anywhere in the Bible affirmed figures of animals & creatures the "woman clothed in the sun, with the moon at her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars" would be it.


      STAR STORIES

      On the topic of constellations and the nomenclature of the stars I thought I would share an interesting study by Barry Setterfield called "Star Stories" where Barry unpacks the history of stars and star clusters in human history.

      Star Stories: Fact or Fiction? - Barry Setterfield - Genesis Science Research

      Barry offers a wealth of information usually provides references for his data. Each of the twelve constellations of the Mazzaroth (crown of stars) are covered and is recommended viewing.

      Delete
    4. Thanks. I did watch Barry who does a more complete version of what I have seen before especially presented by Marilyn Hickey. I believe Columbus referenced Job in his logs & indeed all navigation is best accomplished looking at the skies, the heavens created by the Lord. The ancient idol worshipers beginning in Sumer first appeared on my radar in my freshman year (long ago) when we read ALbright's book: History Begins In Sumer." These cultures are all fascinating but hardly divinely inspired. Therefore, the woman clothed in the sun in Revelation has always been & still remains a mystery to me.

    5. Hi SFG

      THE BOOK OF REVELATION
      Somewhere during the 6th, or between the 6th and the 7th, we move into the middle of the week. And from the 7th trumpet on, through the 7 vials, we are in the last three and a half years of the tribulation.

      The 12th chapter opens saying there appeared a great "wonder" (correct translation of "wonder"= symbol/sign) - there appeared a great symbol/sign in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars;
      As a symbol, the descendants of Jacob would remember the dream of Joseph. For this is a symbol of the Nation Israel. It's not the Church. The Church was raptured in the 4th chapter.

      But, the things that shall be after these things, namely, the Church, begins in chapter 4.
      I challenge you to find any reference to the Church, until Jesus comes back with His saints in chapter 19. Throughout the rest of this book, the Church is where the four and twenty elders are. Gone.

      Satan is cast out of heaven, by that great Angel that looks out for the children of Israel, that was called Daniel's Angel, Michael.

      With the war in Heaven, the Devil is cast onto the earth.
The sun clothed woman is here. The remnant is here, the man child is born, and the Dragon, now restrained to the earth is waiting to destroy that man child, but it's caught up, the 144,000, the sealed ones, they're taken, the man child is taken. That happens during the tribulation.

  12. Thank you Gary, I appreciate the two video's very much. Well done. Hope that many will watch this. I just occurred to me that these signs in the heaven cannot be understood by all just as it was in the days of the birth of Christ. The sign was real however no one in Israel had noticed the star except a few magi from the East who came to tell them. Likewise with the signs we see in the sky today. These signs are equally real as the ancient star of Bethlehem and some of the Church can see it but many cannot. And its good to point them to these signs just as the magi did back then.

  13. I highly recommend "The Witness of the Stars" by E.W. Bullinger. It is a VERY detailed discussion of the original constellations and their meanings.

  14. Blessings to all! I’ve been quietly following this site, as well as Rev12daily for several years. Reading the comments over the years has been uplifting and helped me in my own studies of Eschatology, of which I began 25 years ago. I went jogging this morning and believe that I have received a revelation from the Lord during our morning discussion, which gave me the courage to make this post. Also, over the next few days, I’ll submit a biography/introduction. While the vast majority of what I post (below) is nothing new to all the watchmen, the revelation I received is the significance of the two solar eclipses, and its correlation to the flow of Revelation 12:1-6. I have not seen this elsewhere, which prompted me to show how this might fit into the larger ‘end times’ picture. I am open to any and all criticism, as I believe there is truth in Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” My dates and significance may be off, but I truly believe we are close, and the Lord wants us to put the puzzle together, referring to Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” Also of significance, is 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 “But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.” Lastly, like the Bereans, let us search the scriptures daily!

    For your review and consideration:
    - 08/21/2017: Total solar eclipse (one month warning prior to 1st Revelation 12 sign)

    - 09/23/2017: Rev 12:1-2 sign

    - 10/08/2018: Rev 12:3-4 sign

    - RAPTURE - Exact date/time unknown; (anytime from now until November 23, 2020) Fulfillment of Rev 12:5; high watch date: September 19-20 (Feast of Trumpets)

    - 11/23/2020: Peace treaty (covenant confirmed) Start of Daniel’s 70th week; Interesting side note: This is 20 days after the U.S. elections. Will the outcome of the elections assist/prompt a final confirmation of the covenant with many??

    - 04/08/2024: Total solar eclipse (one month warning prior to Abomination of Desolation (AOD) and beginning of Rev 12:6); X marks the spot after this 2nd solar eclipse over the United States; the center of the X is an area known as “Little Egypt”. Is this a possible reference to when the Israelites escaped tribulation/captivity from Egypt, as I believe many will again escape captivity/tribulation to the United States on the “Wings of an Eagle” after the AOD.

    - 05/06/2024: AOD; midpoint of Daniel’s 70th week; (11/23/2020 + 1260 days); beginning of Rev 12:6 fulfillment. The United States with its global transport capability will begin to transport Israelis on their “Wings of an Eagle” to safety during the 2nd half of Daniel’s 70th week or 1260 days)

    10/18/2027: AOD + 1260 days; End of Daniel’s 70th week; Final fulfillment of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles)

    01/01/2028: (AOD + 1335 days) Daniel 12:12 "And blessed are those who wait and remain until the end of the 1,335 days" - Start of new Millennium (2000 years from start of the ministry of Jesus Christ); Side note – I know that we often refer to the 2,000 years after Christ as the “Church Age”. I’d like to submit (as another possibility) a slightly different name, defined as “The age of salvation by grace through faith”, as this would be more applicable from the start of Jesus’ ministry all the way to the end of Daniel’s 70th week. When it’s referred to as the “Church Age”, it really wouldn’t apply until after the Day of Pentecost (birth of the Church), and would also not apply to the Tribulation, as the Church will be absent.

    Thank you for your time!

    Maranatha,


    Will
