I thank You Heavenly Father for this day– and the opportunity, the privilege, the joy, the honor– to exalt, worship, magnify, praise, honor and adore, glorify, publish, and proclaim Your magnificent, Holy, awesome, precious, glorious and beautiful Name. For You are God and there is no other… You are the Supreme Potentate of the Universe; the Majesty who reigns on high over all that exist. You are the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob who became Israel in Whom I trust; in Whom I live and breathe and have my being.

You are Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent… Almighty God. You know and see all things and You are everywhere at once, and the Universe cannot possibly contain Your Holy Presence– for You are greater than the Universe of Your Creation. You have created all things by the Word of Your…

The Zodiac Gospel Part IV: “The LORD’s Return”

Boy on Stairway to Heaven

In review, in the last post we looked at the 2nd Volume of the revelations of the stars and constellations, which dealt with the story of the redeemed- the rewards of the Redeemer’s suffering.

In Capricorn we see the Goat of Atonement sacrificed in our behalf; in death bringing forth life.  The arrow of GOD’s wrath pierces Aquila, the Eagle who falls to Earth, dies as the Goat of the Sin Offering, and is reborn to Eternal Life as Delphinus, the Dolphin springing up out of the Sea [of humanity].  In this sign we see the promised payment of sin, and the promised gift of Eternal Life- to those who are connected to the Atonement. That can only happen through willing surrender to YHVH GOD, in repentance, confession, and calling upon the Name of the LORD to receive the full benefits of Christ’s Atonement on Calvary’s Cross.

In Aquarius– our blessings are insured by Grace.  The Living Waters are poured forth for the Redeemed by the Divine Water Bearer, the fish drinking in the abundant flow representing all who are saved by the Blood of the Lamb.  Pegasus and Cygnus are representative of the swift and imminent return of the LORD.

Universe 6

The Perfect Placement of the Moon in her distance from Earth- GOD’s Hand!

In Pisces– we see the Redeemed in conflict, although blessed with the knowledge of the LORD, and with the gift of Eternal Life, we are held in this ‘mortal coil’ to endure the suffering common to ALL mankind because of the Fall.  We are freed from the penalty of Sin, but are still subject to the weakness of the flesh, and the persecution of the Enemy carried out by those who are still lost without Christ, the fallen ones’ minions in humanity.

The Band holds the two fish of redeemed mankind; Andromeda is the Chained Woman who is to be Queen, patiently waiting for her Betrothed– the King of Glory who is represented here by the constellation Cepheus.  Although afflicted in much agony, there is the assurance of the Redeemer coming to rule and reign with her.

In the House of Aries we see the blessings of the Redeemed enjoyed.  The Lamb that was slain, is now prepared for Victory.  The Queen Cassiopeia is the Captive delivered who now prepared herself for her Husband, The Redeemer- our LORD Jesus Christ.  Cetus the Sea Monster is bound, and Perseus is a type of Warrior Christ who takes the head off the Evil One, and subdues the Wicked Dragon.

The Zodiac Gospel- Part III: “The Redeemed In Bondage Afflicted”

creator of the universe

In the last post we looked at Volume I of the III-Volume Zodiac Gospel.  I have made it very clear in both the ‘Overview’ and Volume I that this exegesis does NOT sanction Astrology which is corrupt, demonically inspired, and condemned in Holy Scripture- but rather emphasizes what the Bible says about the pre-Mosaic Prophecies regarding the Messiah according to Scriptures… and mankind’s need for Redemption.

In review- The LORD Jesus Christ’s First Coming is unveiled in the first four Houses, beginning with Virgo.  The Promised Seed of the Virgin (Virgo), Who is the ‘Desire of ALL Nations’ shown in the constellation Coma; the Dual-Natured Being revealed in Centaurus, Who is the ‘Despised Sin Offering’ destined to go to the Cross, the Innocent for the guilty- i.e. ALL MANKIND; and the faithful Shepherd Bootes Who protects His flock at all cost.

We also see how Libra shows the Price of the Conflict- ‘The Price Deficient’ balanced by ‘the Price that Covers’- represented by the Scales.  It bears stating that the most ancient Zodiac records show this sign as a sacred altar rather than the scales.  The other constellations show the Dead Victim (Lupus)- a dead dog that is considered unclean; again we see the Cross (Crux) where the Sacrifice takes place; and the Crown of Glory received for the righteous satisfaction of Justice.

2 Corinthians 5:21... “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Scorpio and its decans show the Mighty Warrior in mortal combat with both the great Serpent and the perverse Scorpion.  He prevents the snake from taking the crown, and as shown in the constellation is the Victorious One Hercules, who dies as a result of His wounds.

Sagittarius shows us the Dual-Natured [GOD-man] whose arrows defeat the fallen dragon, with the inevitable punishment demonstrated in the fiery Altar.   ARA means finishing or completing.  Lyra is a beautiful picture of praise ascending to GOD like an eagle.  And so ends the first volume, the Seed of the woman (Jesus) destroys the head of the serpent (satan).

The Zodiac Gospel- Part II: “The Redeemer’s First Coming”

There Has ALWAYS Been A Testimony of The Creator's 'Intelligent Design'... From The Sub-Atomic To The Universal!

There Has ALWAYS Been A Testimony of The Creator’s ‘Intelligent Design’… From The Sub-Atomic To The Universal!

In Part I– I did an overview of the premise of this IV-Part Series, strictly looking at it from the science of Astronomy and the Biblical Record. In this essay I will lay out the first four signs beginning with Virgo because of this quote from Part I:

“We find the key to the correct sequence of the Zodiac in the riddle of the Sphinx [in Egypt… next to the Great Pyramid] which unlocks the mystery. This ancient monument has the head of a woman and the body of a lion. In the Temple of Esneh in Egypt there is a great painting in the portico on the ceiling which shows the whole picture of the Zodiac with all its constellations. Between the figure of Virgo and the figure of Leo– there is a carved figure of the sphinx with the woman’s face looking at the Virgin, and the lion’s tail pointing at Leo. This tells us we begin with the Virgin and end with the Lion. The word sphinx means to bind closely together.” 

Also this quote from Part I: “In the historical writings of virtually all civilized nations there exists a description of the major stars in the heavens– called the constellations or Signs of the Zodiac and always shown as twelve. Going back in time to Rome, or further back to Greece, or before that to Egypt, the Persian Empire, Babylon… no matter how far one goes– there is a remarkable phenomenon. Nearly all nations have the same twelve signs, representing the same twelve things and placed in the same order. Archaeologists and historians who have uncovered the oldest tablets, translated difficult hieroglyphics, and researched the most ancient libraries– have all failed to discover how it is that in so many nations the world over the same signs exist.”

Jesus- Lion of Judah Enthroned

Part II- The Redeemer’s First Coming

The twelve signs of the Zodiac as originally given by GOD were a prophetic outline of GOD’s purpose in the history of salvation.  They can only be understood properly if they are studied in their proper order. Since the word ‘Zodiac‘ [Greek- Zodiakos] means ‘a circle‘ and the root zoad speaks of ‘a path’ or ‘going by steps’, we must discern from Scripture where to start and finish.

Looking at the prophecies in the Bible, we clearly see that the starting point is the Divine Promise concerning ‘the Seed of the woman’ (Gen. 3:14 &15), while the ending point coincides with the victory of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5).

In review: 12 Zodiac Houses with the major sign naming the House, and 3 related constellations called ‘decans’ form a continuing story in three distinct books:

  • Vol. I: The Redeemer’s First Coming (Virgo through Sagittarius)
  • Vol. II: The Redeemed (Capricorn through Aries)
  • Vol. III: The Redeemer’s Second Coming (Taurus through Leo)

I must reiterate again as I stated in Part I, there is absolutely no validity to Astrology. It is the fallen ones’ attempt to counterfeit the truths that are found in the Biblical account of Redemption, and the apparent ‘witness’ that was transmitted from godly generation to generation prior to the giving of the Law of Moses from Mt. Sinai.

The period of at least 2500 years between Adam and Moses needed a discernible method of proclaiming the Promise of a Redeemer, Who would rescue fallen mankind from the curse of death that hindered Yahweh GOD’s Plan from the Garden of Eden to the Cross of Calvary and Jesus Christ’s substitutionary Atonement.

The Zodiac Gospel: Redemption’s Story In The Stars- Part I

art-origins.jpg

The enemy of our souls and his fallen minions, both in the spiritual realm as well as in the earth twist the truths found in Holy Scripture into an appealing counterfeit that entices the carnal nature of fallen mankind. Yet the underlying reality contains the Father’s hope of redemption, most notably revealed in the sealed Canon of our Bible from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21– and surprisingly also in the 12 Houses of the Zodiac constellations.

Matthew 7:13-14… Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and MANY enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and few there be that find it.

[NOTE: Each red entry is a link to valuable resources, either text or video- that are embedded for the purpose of strengthening our precious faith]

When my daughter Sarah was in the sixth grade at Redeemer Baptist Elementary School in West Los Angeles, she had a Science project that she was undecided about. Her teacher suggested an astronomy project, and when I met with Mr. K. he loaned me a book he felt I would find provocative. That was a definite understatement. When I read God’s Voice in the Stars by Kenneth Fleming [linked newly updated edition], I learned many things about God’s Creation that I had never heard of nor anticipated before. She received an “A” for her project and report, and I started a journey of discovery that encompassed over 100 hours of study and fascination.

Hidden Treasure to be sought in the Holy Scriptures

After delving in the substantial resources related to the true primitive meaning of the Zodiac and its 12 houses, I agree with the thesis that God spoke and still speaks the glorious story of Christ and His Redemption of our fallen race by way of the signs of the Zodiac. This series of posts is directly taken from my notes as well as the tape series that I did at the Venice Vineyard Christian Fellowship over four Friday evening services in summer 1991. Please be open to consider the beauty of our God’s testimony in the sky, that dates back to Adam, and preserved an oral tradition of witness until Moses arrived and the Law was given. The Ten Commandments have not been abrogated, but rather expanded by our LORD Jesus Christ as He declared the Kingdom in Matthew Chapters 5-7. Read More…

“What Every American Needs To Know About The Qur’an” Book Review

Diametrically Opposed Doctrines Prove Different Gods- ONLY YHVH Is GOD!

Diametrically Opposed Doctrines Prove Different Gods- ONLY YHVH Is GOD!

America and the worldwide community of nations continue to hear the refrain that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’.  A careful study of history clearly documents the exact opposite.  Not only does the Muslim faith advocate violence against all ‘infidels’- those who will not submit to its teachings, but the book “What Every American Needs To Know About The Qur’an: A History Of Islam & The United States” by William J. Federer comprehensively dispels all ignorance of the truth.  This book is not sensational by any means; it deals strictly with documented historical information that is irrefutable and compelling.

isis-cowards

We have the progressive liberal agenda of ‘political correctness’ in America and worldwide making it more difficult to discern the nature of radical Islamic terrorism.  The growing cancer of I.S.I.S. (the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria) seeking to establish a pervasive Caliphate, along with other likeminded terrorist groups, continue to plague western civilization with murder and mayhem.  Is this also what history shows?  Unfortunately for all genuinely peace-loving Muslims, yes it is.  Also the Obama administration’s insistence on referring to I.S.I.S. as I.S.I.L. is willful denial of what this acronym means… ‘the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant‘.  The ‘Levant’ includes Jordan and Israel… as this map clearly shows:

Israel Will Forever Retain Sovereignty Over The Abrahamic Covenant Land!

Israel Will Forever Retain Sovereignty Over The Abrahamic Covenant Land!

Someone needs to tell Obama to stop calling ISIS- ISIL; he is indirectly signally that they can have even more territory that they possess!  Once the nations learn the truth about this ‘religion’ and its founder, will they acknowledge their grievous error and rally to save our liberties and way of life without oppression?  Or will it take something like this to stir them to united action?

A Swiss Prophet’s Solemn Warning

I will cite several quotes from the text, although every American should read and study carefully all 300 pages.  When the Holy Bible says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”, ignorance of current geopolitical events and their implications is likewise damning.  I pray that we in the Body of Christ fully wake up to the reality of where mankind is in this late stage of the Last Days of human history.

Why We Believe [In Christ’s Resurrection]

John 21:1-14

John 21:1-14

John 11:25… “Jesus said… ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, yet shall he live.'”

Matthew 22:29, 31 &32… “Jesus answered and said to them, ‘You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of GOD… v31– ‘But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by GOD, saying “I am the GOD of Abraham, the GOD of Isaac, and the GOD of Jacob”? GOD is not the GOD of the dead, but of the living.” 

This is a complete essay from the outstanding magazine ‘Israel My Glory published by The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry.  Please browse the website and prayerfully consider subscribing; an investment in your knowledge of Biblical truth with respect to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

May this Resurrection Sunday fill you with awe, joy, and gratitude for our Holy Father- for sending His Son to redeem us from all the curse of the Fall- in Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

[From Dutch Sheets Ministries] “Jesus’ last word was “tetelistai.” It is the same word as “asah” in the Hebrew. It means “to complete something.” It also means “to create.” And, it means “to make war” or “avenge.” When Jesus shouted it out it meant, “The debt is paid in full. I have avenged and made war. Come forth, new creation!” He said all of that, all that the cross meant to mankind, all wrapped up in one word – asah!

“He said, ‘It is finished!’ Then he bowed his head and released his spirit.” (John 19:30; NLT)”

He Paid IT ALL, and said, "It IS Finished!"

He Paid IT ALL, and said, “It IS Finished!”

“Don’t Just Pray… Fast and Pray”

The Entire Chapter John 17 IS The LORD's Prayer... Impacting Our Eternity!

The Entire Chapter John 17 IS The LORD’s Prayer… Impacting Our Eternity!

Our nations, the church worldwide, the lost in need of redemption, our families, and our leadership on every level of governance- are in desperate need of prayer with fasting.  I have numerous essays linked at the bottom of this post that will add to the urgency of the times in which we all live… and what needs to be challenged in prayer that is on the near horizon.  Last Days Prophecies are seeking fulfillment. We all should know that though our LORD is ever-present in our lives and circumstances, deep pervasive darkness is seeking to overwhelm the earth.  We must not falter!  Our prayers have impact in the spirit, and we are called to pray without ceasing…

2 Chronicles 7:14… If My people who are called by My Name, will humble themselves [in fasting] and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways- THEN will I hear from Heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.”

This is an important word from a woman of GOD… PLEASE take it to heart and join the growing Prayer Movement that will result in the Greatest Awakening in the history of mankind! Prayerfully consider joining Intercessors For America … Their 1st Friday Fast has been observed by many thousands, men and women who are reaping the myriad benefits of focused prayer with fasting.  Their resources for prayer, fasting, and evangelism are outstanding- and their monthly newsletter is worth receiving.

“An Appeal To Heaven” – Book Review

GOD Desires "The Synergy Of The Ages"

GOD Desires “The Synergy Of The Ages”

When we look across the landscape of America, what is clearly apparent?  To me it seems that our nation is adrift, floundering like a ship in a mighty storm, heading for dangerous reefs of potential shipwreck (see ‘The Lighthouse Vision’).  Those with Biblical discernment recognize that as a whole our country is spiritually catatonic and morally bankrupt.

Pondering every area of our society reveals the extent of the crisis:  1) The plague of sanctioned abortion- a Federally mandated travesty, has taken the lives of nearly 60 million innocent ones; 2) Violence in the streets continues to plague very many cities in America- with homicides, home invasions, armed robberies, drug/alcohol/porn/gambling and all other addictions exploding; 3) Corruption in all levels of government and the private sector continues to escalate- from the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. to small town municipalities- from Wall Street boardrooms to cyber-hackers; 4) Our educational system over the past 25 years has failed us all. The profound ignorance of a selfish populace has sunk to the level of beyond ridiculous- where even college students cannot answer very basic questions regarding American and world history, or even current geopolitical issues that will affect all of our lives in the near future.

Space will not allow me to continue the litany of woe that is daily upon us, while most go about their business at a frantic pace like nothing is wrong, with heads buried in the sand unwilling to stand up and resist the cancer consuming America.

2 Chronicles 7:14 IS Our ONLY Hope!

2 Chronicles 7:14 IS Our ONLY Hope!

2 Chronicles 7:14… “If My people who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways- THEN will I hear from Heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.”

The LORD gave a specific portion of a verse of Scripture to my wife and me this past year, as we were going through a very troubling extended period in our family on multiple levels.  It came to each of us through unique circumstances confirming His Desire for our lives in answer to much travailing prayer.

Jeremiah 6:16… “Thus says the LORD:  Stand at the crossroads and look, And ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls.”

This I believe is what EVERY Biblical Christian must respond to- both of these commands of the Holy Word of GOD need to be internalized and acted upon daily in our lives to prepare us for a better future than what we can currently ‘see’.  Our children and grandchildren cannot be saddled with a depraved society loaded with $20 Trillion dollars of debt, and the many tentacles of cancer already described.  We must respond to the Call to corporate and individual intercession that will make a profound difference both today and for our future, as it has in the past.  Along with the multitude of Biblical examples, we all have a testimony of answered prayer and radical changes in circumstances that only manifested after sincere repentance, confession, and crying out to the LORD.

The Effectual Fervent Prayer of a Righteous One Availeth Much!

The Effectual Fervent Prayer of a Righteous One Availeth Much!

This post is a review of a small book of magnificent proportions!  It expresses the Heart of GOD for His children specifically, and for our nation in particular.  It provides a catalyst of understanding that has the great potential of spreading beyond the borders of our nation, and encompassing hurting humanity worldwide.  It is clear to those who are ‘awake’ that we are at the end of the Age, and ominous darkness is seeking greater entrenchment leaving death, mayhem, and destruction in its wake.  BUT GOD has other plans, as revealed in “An Appeal To Heaven” by Dutch Sheets.     Read More…
