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).

VOLUME II: “The Redeemed; The Result of the Redeemer’s Sufferings

zodiac 5- capricorn

Capricorn- “The Blessings Procured”.

Aquarius- “Their Blessings Ensured”. 

Pisces- “Their Blessings Held In Abeyance (restrained)”.

Aries- “Their Blessings Consummated and Enjoyed”.

NOTE:  The 2nd Volume opens with the Goat and closes with the Ram– two animals of sacrifice, while the two inward chapters are both connected with fish.  We will develop the symbology as follows:

Chapter I– The sign Capricorn (the Sea Goat) represents ‘the Goat of the Atonement’ slain for the Redeemed.

In Capricorn we have a dying goat with bowed head and folded leg, keeling over, while the Fish tail is living and vigorous.  In the goat we have ‘the Atoning Sacrifice’; in the fish half we have the people for whom the atonement is made.

(See Lev. 9:1-4; Lev. 10:16-17).  There unfortunately has been a false teaching that infiltrated the ekklesia that says that Jesus took on the nature of satan at the Cross… v17 cited shows the sin offering (Jesus) remained Most Holy before, during, and after His Atoning Death on the Cross.

So from the dying Goat comes a Living Fish, a type of the multitude of Redeemed Souls who are given life a s the result of the Sacrifice of Christ.

Capricorn is Latin for Goat; Algedi means ‘Cut Off’; Deneb Algedi means ‘The Sacrifice Cometh’; Dabih means ‘the Sacrifice Slain’.

The Biblical Use of the ‘Type’- ‘Fish’:

Matt. 4:19– The LORD Jesus Christ calls His Disciples to be Fishers of men.

Jeremiah 16:15-16… ‘I will send for many fisherman… and they shall fish them [mankind].’

Ezekiel 47:9 In his vision of the waters, he saw a vast multitude of fish, and

Matt. 13:47-50-  The fish was used as a symbol of the Kingdom of Heaven.

We recognize that the adversary, the enemy of our souls… the rebel prince of this world choses to pervert spiritual reality, by seeking foul worship in the world religions- especially in this day: The New Age Movement.  In Scripture the perversion of this truth (fish representing the Redeemed) can be seen in Dagon the fish god of the Philistines, and Oannes of the Babylonians was half fish.

The Fish became the great symbol of the Christian Church in all its vitality- New Life in Christ, the New Creation of 2 Corinthians 5:17… See Bullinger’s ‘Witness Of The Stars’ pp. 76-78.

SAGITTA (the Arrow) represents GOD’s Judgment of Sin 

This arrow is not from Sagittarius (for his is still in the bow and points elsewhere) but comes instead from the invisible hand of the Father.  In Hebrew the name is Sham, which means ‘destroying’- as in:

Isaiah 53:5,6… But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,  and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned – every one – to his own way;  and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” 

It represents the instrument of divine justice on Christ, Who took the place of guilty man to fulfill a purpose which could not be denied. (John 3:14… for so much the Son of man be lifted up).

crucifixion

He suffered humiliation that WE might be justified by faith in His finished Atonement!

AQUILA- (The Eagle) show ‘the Pierced One Falling’.

In the Eagle’s neck Altair means ‘The Wounding’; Alcair means ‘The Piercing’; Alokal means ‘Wounded in the Heel’; Tarared means ‘Torn’. (Deut. 32:11-12).

DELPHINUS- (The Dolphin) is ‘The Dead One Rising Again

Here is a fish fall of energy, always with His Head upwards- just as the Eagle is always seen with His Head downwards. (Rom. 4:25).  The ancient names for this constellation:  Hebrew Dalaph means ‘Pouring Out of Water‘; Arabic Dalaph means ‘Coming Quickly‘; the Chaldee Rotaneb means ‘Swiftly Running‘.

The LORD Jesus Christ IS The Fount of Livings Waters!

Chapter 2– The Sign Aquarius (The Water Bearer)… The Living Waters of Blessings Poured Forth for The Redeemed

Here we have the Waterman holding a large water jar pouring an endless stream of water which flows into the open mouth of Piscis Austrinus (the Southern Fish).  The Hebrew name was Deli meaning ‘the Water Jar‘; in Arabic Delu with the same meaning.

In the right shoulder is the star Salmelik which means ‘The Record of the Pouring Out‘. The left shoulder star Sadalsuud mens ‘He Who Pours Out‘.  The right leg star Sheat means ‘Who Carries‘.  The star in the jar Meon means ‘Urn‘.

John 4:14… “…but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him i will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” 

John 7:37-39… 37On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the  Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.”

Just as Christ poured His Blood in redeeming His people, here He pours out the Water of Life in blessing His people- the future sons and daughters of the Eternal Kingdom. (See Exodus 17:1-7)

I Corinthians 10:1-4… 1Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 2 all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.”

PISCIS AUSTRINUS (AUSTRALIS)The Southern Fish- Represents the Living Waters Bestowed and Their Blessings Received

Fomalhaut means ‘The Mouth of the Fish‘; where an endless stream of blessings is received- bestowed by Christ upon His people.

PEGASUS- (The Winged Horse) represents the Imminent Return of the LORD.

Pega or Peka means ‘The Chief‘ and Sus means ‘Horse‘.  Markab means ‘Returning from Afar‘.  Scheat means ‘Who Goes and Returns‘.  Enif means ‘the Water‘ in Arabic.  Matar means ‘Who Causes to Overflow (with Joy)‘.

Jesus loves Peter AND US fully knowing our humanity and weakness; in HIM we are strong.

Though many blessings are showered on GOD’s people today, the complete fulfillment awaits the coming day when Christ returns in power and great glory (His Glorious Appearing).

Isaiah 11:9… “The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.’

I Corinthians 2:9… “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 

Cygnus- The Swan represents The Sure Return of the Redeemer.

The swan is a bird of the air and water.  It looks like a cross in the northern sky and that is what some people call it, ‘The Northern Cross‘.  Cygnus is both Greek and Latin means ‘Circling and Returning‘.  Deneb means ‘The LORD or Judge Comes‘.  Albireo is Arabic for ‘Flying Swiftly‘.  Sadr is ‘Who Returns as in a Circle‘.  Azel means ‘Who is Returning Quickly‘.  Fafage is the star which means ‘Shining Forth‘.

2 Thessalonians 1:9 &10… These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” 

Zodiac 7- Pisces

Chapter III– PISCES (The Fish) – The Blessings of the Redeemed Held in Abeyance

This star picture shows two large fish held by a band, one pointing north and the other at a right angle along the path of the sun.

The ancient Egyptian name is Piscis Hori meaning ‘the Fishes of Him Who Comes‘… may well represent two schools of fish- Israel and the ChurchOkda means ‘the United‘; Alsamaca means ‘the Upheld‘.  Alrisha (Arabic) means ‘the Band or Bridle‘ which represents the redeemed in bondage.

ANDROMEDA- The Redeemed in Bondage Afflicted- the Chained

Hebrew Persea means ‘stretched out‘.  In the Zodiac of Denderah her name is Set which means ‘Set Up as a Queen‘.  Alpheratz is the star in her head which means ‘The Broken Down‘.  Mirach is the star in her body which means ‘the Weak‘.  The star in her left foot Almaak means ‘Struck Down‘.  Almara means ‘the Afflicted‘.  

CEPHEUS- Greek name from a Hebrew word meaning ‘Royal Branch‘ represents a King sitting on a throne near his wife Cassiopeia- who lives in one ‘house’ over in Aries.  He is the Deliverer for Whom the chained one waits.

The Egyptians called him Pekuhorthe Ruler that Comes‘; Ethiopians call him Hyk or ‘the King‘.  The star Alphirk in his belt means ‘the Redeemer‘.  The star Alrai in his left knee means ‘who Bruises or Breaks‘. (Psalm 24).

Jesus Biblical

We need the clarity of the Scriptures to reveal daily the mission of Redemption that was and is fulfilled only in the historical Jesus of Nazareth.

Zodiac 8- AriesChapter IV ARIES represents Glory out of Humiliation, or the Blessings fulfilled and realized.

It pictures a Ram, full of life and strength and signifies that our Victory rests firmly on the foundation of the Atonement.  ‘Aries‘ means ‘Chief or Head‘.  The Hebrew name is Taleh or ‘the Lamb‘.  The Akkadian name is Baraziggar– literally ‘the Altar of Right Making‘ or ‘the Sacrifice of Righteousness‘.  The Arabic name Hamal means ‘Merciful‘.

The star in the forehead Elnoth means ‘Wounded or Slain‘; Al Sheratan means ‘Bruised‘, and Mesartim means ‘the Bound‘.  Rev. 5:12 says ‘Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.’

During the Spring Equinox, at the time of the Exodus from Egypt, the Sun was in Aries (14th of Nisan).  With the further receding caused by the precession of the equinoxes, in the year of the Crucifixion of our LORD, the Lamb of GOD was at the Altar of Sacrifice directly between Elnoth and Al Sheratan.  The darkness at noon may have been to allow the ‘testimony’ of Aries to speak of the Passover Lamb.

CASSIOPEIA- means The Beautiful Enthroned; also Daughter of Splendor.  She is the Freed Bride, preparing for her Marriage to the Redeemer.  This constellation looks like a strange ‘W’ and is easy for us to see with the naked eye- although binoculars will reveal fascinating clusters of stars.

She is a woman on a throne, fixing her hair with her left hand- holding a Branch in her right hand.  The star in her breast Shedir means ‘the Freed‘; Caph means ‘the Branch of Victory‘ (Isaiah 61:10 &11).

CETUS (or the Sea Monster) is the largest of all the constellations in the sky- although it is very dim.  A natural enemy of fish.  Mira in the neck is a star that means ‘Rebel‘ (Isaiah 26:21-27:1).  Menkar means ‘Chained Enemy‘; ‘Diphda means ‘Overthrown‘; Baten Kaitos is ‘Subdued‘.

PERSEUS- or the Hebrew Peretz means ‘The Breaker‘ (Micah 2:12,13).  In ancient zodiacs he had winged feet and was known as Kar Knem or ‘He who Fights and Subdues‘; Mirfak in His waist means ‘Who Helps‘; Al Ghoul is perfect in meaning ‘The Evil Spirit‘ and is also known as Rosh Satan or ‘the Head of the Adversary‘.

Each post in this series has valuable links to the many reference works that present this comprehensive understanding of the Testimony of Heaven in YHVH GOD’s Divine Plan of Redemption… not only of the fallen human race, but also our entire wayward planet in desperate need of healing.
