I want to talk tonight about the beginning and the end. Because God tells us right from the get go in Gen. 3 what is going to come upon this world as declared in Isaiah.
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Isaiah 46:10
So let’s go to Genesis and look again at the fall, a specific part of the story always stand out to me calling me to dig deeper and really search out the meaning of the thing.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. Genesis 3:14-16
The imagery used there is plain, a woman, seeds, etc. but it is also so very important. See I know that the seed of the woman here was Jesus our Lord and Savior who bruised the head of the serpent when he conquered death by resurrecting from the grave three days after being crucified. Because he lives we have the blessed hope of eternal life, bodily resurrection also. But it also feels like that is only part of the story here in Genesis like there is an underlying meaning that will only make sense when we are given more information. Kinda like a cliffhanger story where you have to wait till next week to find out the ending. So I ponder it over sometimes. Last night I found a video series on YouTube that dealt with this very issue. The series is God’s Roadmap to the End if you want to check into it. It is very enlightening and insightful, but fair warning they use computer generated voices so it is a little bland to listen to, ignore that and persevere you will not be sorry you did.
Anyway they link the Genesis passage to Rev. 12 1-6 and when they dd it was such a click moment. Like oh ok, makes sense. The missing information was there all along, well maybe not all along since it is at the very end of the New Testament but you get my point. This time though instead of a earthly prophecy like in Genesis we are given a prophetic sign to look for in the heavens. Here we again have the woman this time clothed with the sun, I never quite understood that, how’s a woman wear the sun, but hang in here, she will be in about 5 months or so, wearing a crown of 12 stars with moon under here feet and about to give birth. Okay that’s a lot to take in already and that’s just verses 1 & 2.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Revelation 12:1-2
As if the woman isn’t enough we have another wonder appearing – a great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns. Okay that sounds basically like the antichrist, I’ve spent a lot of time studying the end since I feel we are nearing the midnight hour of time, that I will see my sweet Lord very soon when he returns for his bride. I feel even more sure now after linking these two prophecies with what I have learned from the video I mentioned.
Which just happens to be supported by some of the things my son has been learning during his astronomy studies during school, one of the beauties of homeschooling is that our whole family is involved in learning together, it’s not just something he is sent away for 9 hours a day to the local indoctrination center to do. No, instead learning occurs with God as the center of all things and it truly is a family thing. I have become fascinated with astronomy as I have gone over the materials with my kid. Anyway, by participating in his studies of the planets over the last several weeks when we got to the outer ones Neptune and Pluto we ran across several sources mentioning that there has been a pull on the orbit of these planets, that there might be another planet out there at the very edge with a weird orbit. The orbital plane is more tilted than Pluto’s and it is a long elliptical that swings it around the sun quite close, sorta inside the orbits of the other planets. The sun isn’t the center of it’s orbit like all the other planets but it’s more like the whole solar system is. They thing the planet takes something around 2,000 years to complete it’s orbit so it has never been observed. But using the same methods used to predict and locate the other outer planets they are fairly certain it exists, which means it is on it’s way back into the inner solar system. They go into much more detail in the second series of the videos if you want to look into it but basically this Niburu / Planet X we keep hearing about is it and it’s coming soon. It also happens to be covered in a dust cloud making it invisible to any but infrared telescopes (which have not been around very long, less than 100 years), the very same type of telescopes that many of the nations have been installing on Antarctica in recent years. Which just happens to be the best location to view it when it finally comes into view, since it’s long elliptical orbit tilts down below the plane of the solar system. Nasa has reported on this several times in the past 40 years but currently has removed the records from their online archives, apologizing for any inconvenience this may have caused. Highly suspect if you ask me considering what this thing is, where we stand in prophecy and time, and the fact that what this thing is bringing is not good.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Revelation 12:3-4
This beast is going to attempt to devour the child, but don’t worry it won’t. Nope God’s gonna catch it up to him until the due time. The woman mean while is going to flee until the man child returns in 1,260 days, that’s 3 1/2 years, the exact time allotted for the Great Tribulation or God’s pouring out of wrath upon an unrepentant, rejecting, unsaved world.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. Revelation 12:5-6
I know you guys are thinking enough already get to the point woman! The point is that the sign given in Rev. 12 will appear in exact configuration on Sept. 23, 2017. This sign has only appeared in this exact, precise way one other time according to the available star charting programs working backwards. That time was Aug. 5, 3915 BC, now when we calculate that up knowing that this sign will appear on September 23 this year using a lunar year of 360 days which is the year God gives us and the Israelite’s use, we see that the first appearance occurred 6,017 years ago! Think about that, the exact age for the earth given in scripture. The precise date is probably the date that the original Genesis prophecy was given even. Think about this, if the sign we are to watch for that foretells the events that are to come, the events that are the end, is occurring in a few months then folks we are running out of time! If you are not saved then please, please, please I can not urge you enough to get to know Jesus and make him your personal Lord and Savior before it is too late. Trust me when I say you do not want to face what is coming without being secure in your eternal salvation. You don’t – there’s a very good reason Jesus said that God will shorten those days or there would be no flesh left upon the earth. They will be horrible, worse than anything we can even imagine. Just read the rest of Revelation and see what I mean. God is going to pour out his wrath on the world that has turned it’s back on him, thumbed it’s nose at him, rejected him and he is going to use the Antichrist, Satan and even the signs in the heaven to do it. Heaven help all who are unsaved when he does.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1:18-32
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Ephesians 5:3-6
See I happen to believe in the rapture and that it will occur before the pouring out of wrath. It makes sense that before the powers of evil can be totally released to have dominion for a short, praise God short, spell then the restraining power of the Holy Spirit has to be gone from the earth. That’s the Church folks, that’s those who are true believers, and I believe he will snatch or catch us away before the coming terrors upon the world, that we would not suffer God’s wrath. This is taken straight from scripture :
and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10
Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10
See, when Jesus died and was resurrected it ushered in the Church age and at that point, specifically in 70AD, he stopped dealing with Israel as they suffered a long diaspora foretold by the many prophets of the Old Testament as well as by Jesus himself. This is the gap in Danial’s 70 weeks.
“Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place. Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” Daniel 9:24-27
We are told there will be 7 weeks of years from the time that it went out that the temple was to be rebuilt until it was, then another 62 weeks until the anointed one of God, Jesus, is cut off. That’s 69 weeks so far ending with Jesus dying on the cross. That leaves one week yet to come, the final week of years or 7 years of Revelation, beginning with a covenant with many but clearly involving the nation of Israel. Considering that Israel was scattered and destroyed as a nation in 70AD up until 1917 the very idea of this prophecy of Daniel’s coming true seemed an impossibility. But in 1917 with the Balfour Declaration a glimmer of hope for Israel sparked, then in 1948 when a nation was born in a day Israel saw that spark become a flame. That flame grew even larger in 1967 when they reclaimed Jerusalem during the 6-Hour War. In the time since these events began taking place the nation of Israel has flourished despite the odds and enemies against it and soon God will once again turn to his chosen people declaring himself to be their God, calling them to rise up an lead the world to turn from sin and the evil one who will rule this world completely once the power of the Holy Spirit in the Church is no longer here to hinder him.
God has promised to spare us as true believers and followers of Jesus from the coming wrath and suffering. We are the body of Christ and He will deliver us by catching us up into the clouds, where we will remain in his presence until he returns bodily to the earth at the end of the 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation as the returning King conquering and destroying all those who ave stubbornly refused to believe and trust in God and his Son, Jesus our only hope of eternal salvation. Just see what Scripture has to say about it.
For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Time is short, so short. Signs are occurring, planets are lining up, knowledge has increased to the point to allow us to make sense of signs that previously made no sense whatsoever. Such as the sign of Rev. 12 the woman clothed in the sun giving birth, the red dragon waiting to devour her child, it all seemed so strange for the last almost 2,000 years since John wrote down his Revelation in 90AD. But now we can see what it all means because the seal is broken on Daniels sealed prophecy; knowledge has increased and people run to and fro. The woman is the constellation Virgo which will be crowned with Leo and three of the planets making the 12 stars of her crown, and she will be in a position in the behind the sun to where the sun’s brightness will obscure or clothe her. Jupiter, also called the King planet or star, entered her womb last fall and will remain there 41 weeks, the exact term of a human pregnancy. Jupiter is in the womb of Virgo each year but normally it’s orbit is such that it passes through much quicker, instead this time there it’s position in relation to the Earth causes a retrograde action which makes it bounce back and forth with the womb for the full term of a human pregnancy before being birthed by the virgin. This matches the prophecy from Rev. 12 of the woman travailing in childbirth and giving birth to a male child who will rule the world with a rod of iron, it also links back to the seed prophecy in Genesis. Isn’t it amazing how God declares the end from the beginning and then ensures that it plays out just as he says it will. Jupiter will hover just outside the womb for a couple of more weeks while the moon cycles into it’s position at the feet of Virgo and completing the sign of the woman. The time frame for this began with Jupiter entering the womb Nov. 20, 2016, the birth occurs on September 9th this year and the final alignment where the woman is clothed with the sun, crowned with 12 stars, the moon at her feet and her male child just delivered occurs on Sept. 23, 2017. You can’t tell me this is just a coincidence, the last time the exact same heavenly line up occurred was at the time the bible tells us Adam and Eve fell and the original seed prophecy was given. Now here we are 6,017 years later, which is the time frame for the earth reflected in the 6 days of creation I might add. For with God a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like a day. That makes the 7th day or 7th thousand years the millennial reign of Christ. This is also the time line given for us in 1st Enoch. Please if you are not saved get right with the Lord, accept Jesus’ gift of salvation now, before time is up. And if you are already numbered among the blessed then please share the Good News, share the hope, that you serve a living King, a risen King. Your Savior is alive and he is returning soon for his own, we only have a limited time to grow the body of Christ. When the church is caught up all hell will break loose on earth, folks will die by multitudes, they may not have time to accept Jesus before they die. Evil will reign on the planet until the day Christ returns to claim Israel for his Father and set up his throne in Jerusalem. Please brothers and sisters let’s be hard about the Father’s business winning souls to Christ and salvation while we can.
Oh, yeah, I didn’t forget about the Great Red Dragon of the Rev. 12 sign or Niburu / Planet X I’ll get to them tomorrow night Lord willing. It’s all just a lot to cover in one evening, a lot to process. In the meantime prayerfully seek the Lord’s guidance and to do His will. Until next time, may God bless and keep you!
