HE IS COMING WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY!
According to the scriptures, the lights of the heavens are given for signs and seasons, and for days and years (Gen. 1:14). And every sign has a voice (Ex. 4:8), and the purpose of the voice of the sign is to cause the people to believe (Ex 4:8; Jer. 10:2). And every word written in the heavenlies (Psalm 147:4), primarily in the Hebrew language (Rom. 3:1,2), is as holy and as viable and as valuable as every word written in the Bible (Ps.19:1-11).
Numbers 24:17-"....there shall come a star out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall rise out of Israel..." This was prophesied concerning Christ's first coming. Only a comet can 'come...out of ' one place to go to another, other than the planets in their normal courses, which would not be too much cause for discussion or concern among astronomers. Even the conjunctions of Jupiter and Regulus that took place at the time of Christ's birth had occurred many times previous to that time, and many times since: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaKqpopQXOQwith Only a comet with its tail, can shine like a sceptre in the sky, and only a comet can appear to 'rise out of' a specific place. Only a comet could fit the criteria of that first star, yet no one on earth, except the wise men, saw it, or understood what it represented. This comet, this star, came into conjunction with Jupiter, the king planet, and Regulus, the king star, and stood over Bethlehem, at and around the time of Christ's birth. Since Orion's belt is also known as Jacob's rod, or staff, it is more than likely that the comet came out of the constellation Orion. One of the Hebrew names for Orion is Al Gibbor, 'The Mighty One', which is also one of the names for the Messiah, Jesus Christ. This is borne out in Isaiah 9:6-8, which is also a prophetic word concerning the birth of Christ, and the Hebrew word 'gibbor' is translated there as "the mighty God".
There is a comet in the heavenlies at this time commonly known as ISON. It is coming from the constellation Gemini, which indicates Blessing, and will come in its closest approach to the sun on November 28, 2013. That day is a very special occasion in that it falls on both Thanksgiving Day and the beginning day of Hanukkah, at the same time, the only time in history these 2 holidays have ever been, or ever will be again, celebrated at the same time on the fourth Thursday of November.
The projection of comet ISON's trajectory is a line of commentary of the glory of God, emphasizing the message vital for us to know and understand at this very important and wonderful time, and this is that message: http://www.astronomyhouston.org/sites/default/files/comet/Prof%20Comet%20Winter_2013.pdf
Page 20 of the above website shows the complete path of comet ISON from September 2012 through the year 2020, from beginning to end. You will notice on the above website that there are quite a few comets out there circulating in the skies at this present time. But there is only one comet, Comet ISON, that fits the criteria of the fulfillment of the scriptures concerning the return of Jesus Christ for his saints, Now!
From the time of its dicovery, Sept. 21, 2012, until the end of July, 2013, comet Ison is in Gemini, looping around in between Castor and Pollux. In Hebrew, Gemini means 'right hand', (Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, #3227), which indicates the blessing, power, and strength of God - Gen. 48:9-20;
Psalm 89:52 - Blessed be the Lord forevermore. Amen, and Amen.
Eph. 1:3 - "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ";
Ps. 80:17 - "Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself";
Prov.10:22 - "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it";
Psalm 16:11 - "Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore".
Mark 14:61,62 - ...The high priest asked him, Art thou the Christ, the son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
The blessings of strength and power and wealth and pleasures are in the right hand of the Lord God Almighty for all who believe.
In Matthew 24:36, Jesus proclaimed that no man or angel knows the day and hour of the Lord's coming, only the Father himself. Yet in Revelation 3:3, Jesus speaks again and says that if you don't watch, you won't know the hour of his coming, and He would come upon you as a thief. In this verse Jesus does not say, that 'no man will know the day' of his coming, as he did in Matthew. In I Cor. 2:9 the Lord declares, "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God." Therefore, the things that God desires for us to know at this specific time are freely given to all those who ask the Father in Jesus' name. God wants us to watch for Jesus' coming so that we will know the hour of his coming and be ready. God couldn't tell the disciples of almost two milleniums ago, when that day would be. They would have lost hope and fainted in their minds. But now it is evident from the scriptures that that day and hour is fast approaching: Luke 21:25-36. In Matt. 24:37-39, Jesus compared his coming to the days of Noah; but as God gave Noah seven days notice before the floods came, as it says in Genesis 7:4, our Heavenly Father is declaring openly, right now, to His beloved children, his advance notice of the day of Christ's coming; though we still have to watch for the hour. God told Noah to get his family on the ark seven days before the day of the flood. He did not spell out in the scriptures the hour the rain began to fall. We are not of the night, nor of darkness, that that day should overtake us as a thief. Luke 21:34, 35 - "Take heed to yourselves lest ... that day come upon you unawares, for as a snare will it come upon all they who dwell upon the face of the earth." We are not earth dwellers. We are heaven dwellers: Eph 2:6; Phil. 3:20, 21; Rev. 12:12. Proverbs 1:17 - "Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird"; or, in this case, in the sight of any child of the most high God. Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loves God that begat Jesus, loves Jesus also that is begotten of God; I John 5:1. All who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved; Romans 10:13.
Another Hebrew name for Gemini is 'Al Tamam' (Strong's Concordance # 8552), which means 'complete'. Astronomers of old say it means 'twinned, or combined,' indicating unity and brotherhood. Castor and Pollux are combined stars. They speak to us together, not separately; they combine to make one complete thought. Also Castor is derived from Hebrew, and Pollux from the Greek, further indicating unity and brotherhood, as in Eph. 2:15.
In Strong's Concordance, Castor is from the Hebrew language, # 2690 - Chatsar, or Chatsotser, and has two definitions; this is very unusual and very significant, that there are two definitions for one number: first, "to surround in a stockade, and thus separate from the open country", as in 1 Peter 1:5, - "who are kept (garrisoned) by the power of God through faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time". Strong's Concordance futher indicates in # 2700-2705, that Chatsar means 'village'. The second definition is, 'to trumpet, to blow, to sound'. Pollux - in Greek, signifies 'great, or many', #4183, and the Greek word polis, #4172, = city. So Castor and Pollux together mean 'Many Protected and Fortified Citizenry', which is born out in Acts 28:11, 1 Peter 1:5, Luke 10:19. The second definition and combined meaning of Castor and Pollux is, 'Great Trumpet Sound'. These are awesome things.
This type of trumpet was a silver trumpet, used by the priests for the purpose of sounding an alarm, calling everyone together, or for celebration. And because of Jupiter's place in Taurus, at this same time, the signification is of great celebration, triumph, and rejoicing for the protected citizenry of God.
Until nearly the end of June, 2013, Jupiter is in Taurus, moving back and forth between the stars Aldabaran, the Pleiades, and the Hyades. Taurus represents Jesus as the beginning and the ending, the aleph and the tau. In the sky, the stars of Taurus look like the beginning Hebrew letter aleph , so they signified this as the beginning constellation of their zodiac. It's also the Tau, because they call it 'te'ow', # 8377, which is a wild bull, derived from # 8376, ta'ah - 'to mark off, designate, point out', which is also the significance of aleph and tau, together. Also, it's the only constellation in the heavenlies that is crossed by the ecliptic and the galactic equator, therefore, marked out. Also in 1922, TAU was made the official abbreviation for Taurus. Aleph and tau, or tav, are the beginning and ending letters of the Hebrew alphabet, just as alpha and omega are the beginning and ending letters of the Greek alphabet. As Jesus said, in Revelation 1:8 - "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, The Almighty."
May 24 - 30, 2013, in the evening western sky, close to the horizon, Mercury and Venus will be dancing around with Jupiter in Taurus. Jupiter represents the Heavenly Father, Mercury is the messenger of God, and Venus represents the Lord. This dance is a celebration of the message taking place in the heavenlies. http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/471661/20130528/2013-dance-planets-jupiter-mercury-venus-photos.htm
Aldabaran in Taurus is known as 'the bull's eye', but dabar means 'to speak, promise , or decree', (Strong's # 1696). 'An' is from the hebrew which means eye, countenance, or fountain (Strong's # 5869), and signifies the favor of God. Aldabaran literally means 'the oracle of God'; Al or El = God; Dabar = promise or decree; and 'an' = eye, which, for the Citizenry of God, is a promise, a decree of Favor.
The Pleiades are from the Hebrew word 'pele' - which means 'wondrous', according to Strong's Concordance # 6382, 6383, and 'yada' #3045, - which means 'knowledge, or teaching'. This 'wondrous knowledge' corresponds with Aldabaran, 'the promised favor of God'.
The Hebrew word in the Bible for the Pleiades, is 'kiymah', (Strong's Concordance #3598, 'a cluster', which comes from # 3558, 'kuwmaz', Which means 'to store away; a jewel', like in Malachi 3:17, (though not the same word). The Pleiades are also thought of as dancers in several countries.
And the Hyades also, makes it very special: #1690 - 'huyedah' - 'acclaim; a choir of singers; thanksgiving'. Jupiter repesents the Father, in Taurus, which represents the beginning and the end, the times for the joy and rejoicing of God our heavenly Father, and for us, His children. This is the end of an age of grace on earth for all Christianity, and the beginning of new ages of greater grace, beyond what we could ever ask for, far beyond comprehension. I Cor. 2:9; Eph 2:7. http://www.nakedeyeplanets.com/jupiter.htm
Psalm 89:15 - Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.
Psalm 96:11-13, Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth.
Psalm 31:21 - Blessed be the Lord: for he hath showed me His marvelous kindness in a strong city.
This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!
On June 19, 2013, just before the summer solstice when summer officially begins, Jupiter comes into superior conjunction with the sun, as they are both moving into Gemini with Ison. Jupiter will not be seen for about 2 weeks until it finally emerges from the sun's glare, in early July. Also in July, Mars, representing the archangel Michael, God's warrior angel, joins the Sun, Mercury, the messenger of God, Jupiter, and comet Ison in Gemini, and they are all together in Gemini, until the sun moves on into Cancer, on the 20th of July. As it states in Luke 21:25-31, this grouping in Gemini signifies the coming of the Kingdom of God with power and great glory. At this same time, the Perseid meteor showers begin. They appear every year from mid July to the middle of August. Because of the grouping of the planets and Ison with the sun in Gemini at this specific time, the Perseids are truly significant. They represent the abundance of grace coming from Perseus, (# 6560) the Breaker, the Rescuer, from on high, as it says in Dan. 6:27 - "He delivereth and rescueth, and He worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the Lions." Ex. 15:6 - "Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy". As Jesus also said in Matt. 12:28 - "But if I cast out devils by the spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you". Matt. 6:10 - "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven." Rev. 12:10 - "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of the brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." Comet Ison then moves on into the constellation Cancer in August, along with Mars, while Jupiter remains in the constellation Gemini, in the midst of The Blessing, the Great Sounding of the trumpet, unity, and brotherhood, until July, 2014.
Tishri 1, on the Jewish Calendar, takes place at the first sighting of the sliver of crescent new moon, in September this year, 2013. It will make its appearance somewhere between the 6-8. (What is a Biblical New moon?www.yrm.org/What_is_a_New_Moon.htm). It is also known as Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets, and Rosh Hashanah, The Jewish new year, and the 7th and last trumpet of the festival year. It is also the day of Christ's birth. He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (Concerning the accuracy of the birthdate of Jesus, and the importance of Tishri 1, The Day of Trumpets, see sections VII and VIII : http://www.versebyverse.org/doctrine/birthofchrist.html).
Look at the website below and see that what is happening in the stars on that day,
http://waitingforison.wordpress.com/september-2013/ , is I Thessalonians 4:16 - The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
When the new moon makes its appearance, it will signal the start of Tishri 1, the beginning of the new year, and the day of The Feast of Trumpets, which is the 7th and last trump of the festival year Tishri 1 has long been recognized as the official date of Christ's birth, and He is the first and the last: http://antipas.net/6_rosh.htm
The comet Ison (the shout is the comet's tail) will be seen by telescope or binoculars on September 4/5 in the morning sky before dawn. It will be very big to every astronomer, since, as of March 1, Ison's tail was already 40,000 miles long. It will be in the constellation of Cancer (the trumpet. Cancer looks like a giant trumpet to the naked eye. It's ancient name is 'Klaria', from which the word 'Clarion' is derived, as in, 'the clarion call' ), along with Mars (which represents the voice of Michael the archangel), and the beehive cluster (also known as the Cloud, Whirling cloud, and Cloudy Sky; the only nebulous and cloudy group of stars that can be seen with the naked eye) and the comet Ison itself is surrounded by a cloud of dust called a coma, which is already unusually large in comparison to other comets -
Rev. 1:7 - "Behold, He cometh with clouds...." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KhK_EbbOyA
Look at I Thess. 4:16, 17, Zondervan's Greek interlinear of the New Testament has the clearest picture of what will take place at that time: "Because the Lord himself," - in every place this phrase is used in the Old Testament, it refers to judgement. Some people will go with the Lord, some will be left behind. There is the judgement. The Lord Jesus Christ is the dividing line for righteousness.
"with a shout of command" - As Jesus commanded Lazarus, "Come forth!" and Lazarus rose from the dead and came forth; John 11:43. The word 'with' is the Greek word 'en' , which Bullinger's Greek Lexicon and Concordance says it means 'in'. All three 'withs' in this verse mean 'in', so I am going to set it down that way. Then you'll see the importance of this happening, because the Lord is not separate from, or in proximity to, these entities, but He is 'all in all':
Because the Lord Himself 'in' a shout of command, 'in' [the] archangel's voice, and 'in' the trumpet of God shall descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then (next, or thereupon), we the living who remain, together with (sun) them (the risen from the dead) , shall be caught away in the clouds for [the] meeting of the Lord in [the] air, and thus always with (sun - together with) [the] Lord we shall be.
The Lord himself is in you.
I Cor. 15:51-55, - "Lo, a mystery to you I tell: all we shall not fall asleep, but all we shall be changed, in an instant, in the the twinkling of an eye, 'in' the last trumpet; for a trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For it behoves this corruption to put on incorruptibility, and this mortal to put on immortality. But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruptibility, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the word that has been written: Death was swallowed up in victory. Where of thee, O death, the sting? Where of thee, O Hades, the victory?" (Zondervan's Greek Interlinear translation). This is the day some refer to as 'the great awakening'; http://www.richard-2782.net/trump.htm (under heading, 'The Last Trumpet').
Rev. 1: 7 - Behold he cometh with ( meta - in proximity with ) clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth (not heaven; the church, the body of Christ, is seated together in the heavenlies in Christ, Eph.2:6) shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
When the Magi saw the the star, the sign of Christ's first coming, they got their stuff together and took off after it. By the time they got there, Jesus was already born. He was born at the exact moment that the new moon made its appearance, signifying the exact moment of the sounding of the trumpet.
Rev. 10:7 - "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets". In the record in Mark, chapter 14, Jesus enlightens the high priest as to his true identity, and the prophesy that Jesus gives the high priest reads the same way in the heavens as it does in the scriptures.
Mark 14:61,62 ..."the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on ('on' is the Greek word ek, which means 'out of', or, 'from among', according to Bullinger's Lexicon and concordance) the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
On Tishri 1, Wednesday, September 4, at 6:37 p.m. EST, the trumpet will sound, and in the twinkling of an eye the dead in Christ will rise. They will be able to look up and see Jesus, (along with those of us who have put on immortality) as represented by comet Ison, sitting in the constellation Cancer, the trumpet, which is 'out of', or 'from among', the Right Hand (Gemini) Of Power, represented by Jupiter, that represents the heavenly Father, in the constellation Gemini. Ps. 118:16,17 - "The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord."
We, who love His appearing, shall receive the crown of righteousness. II Timothy 4:8.
1. After the close pairings of Ison and Mars in Cancer, Mars and Ison move down together to Leo and will pass very close to Regulus, on Oct. 14-16, 2013.
Regulus is the king star. It speaks of royalty and kingly authority, power and strength. Mars, who represents Michael the archangel, makes this abundantly clear. The name Regulus comes from the Hebrew word, regel, which means 'foot', as indicated by these prohetic verses:
2. Ison then goes on ahead of Mars, leaving it behind and connects up with Spica in Virgo, coming within one degree, visually, of that star on Nov. 18, indicating unity of the spirit. Spica is 'The Branch', of wheat, or (barley) corn, who is Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior, who was raised from the dead and went up to heaven in the spring, at the time of the wheat and barley harvest in Israel; our promised seed; Jer. 23:5; 33:15; Gal. 3:16,29. In Hebrew Spica is called Al Zemach (Strong's # 6780) Al Azal (#235, 236). It means 'God Branch Go Up', or, 'God Branch Depart'. It is referring to the departure up into heaven of the Lord's saints to meet the Lord in the air, "and so shall we ever be with the Lord". Jesus was the firstfruit, and we are those that are his at his coming; I Cor. 15:23.
3. November 25, 2013, comet Ison will be in conjunction with Comet P2/Encke, a periodic comet which orbits the sun every 3.3 years. This conjunction takes place in the constellation Libra, indicating justice, loving kindness, and completeness. Also in Libra at this same time is the beautiful planet Saturn, representing the glory of God, and Mercury, the messenger. Jeremiah 9:23, 24 - "Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, judgement, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord."
4. On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28., 2013, Ison is at its closest approach to the sun. Nov. 28 is also the day that the Jews have their celebration of Hanukkah this year beginning at sundown, Nov. 27. Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, and the Feast of Dedication (Strong's #2598), is a time of rejoicing and renewal. In John 10:16-18, 22, at the time of that feast, Jesus spoke these words, "...And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold and one shepherd. Therefore doth my father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it up again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment I have received of the father"....And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter." You see how God has tied the two sheepfolds together in one day's time for His purposes this year, so as to make it very clear that He has made us to be the righteousness of God in Him and that we are one in Christ Jesus, the Church of God. Eph. 2:18-22; Gal. 3:28 - "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."
According to the tradition of the first feast of dedication of the temple, there was only enough oil for the candle to shine in the temple for one night, when it was supposed to shine nightly, but God miraculously made the oil to last for 8 days until more oil could be processed. In light of Matthew 25:1-13, this speaks very highly of God's grace and mercy and love for all of us; Heb. 7:24,25. On the evening of Nov. 27, at sundown, the First candle of Hanukkah will be lit. We are not of the night, nor of the darkness, which does not comprehend the light (John 1:5 - "And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not"); we are children of the light, by Jesus Christ, and children of the day. The Greek word for 'day' is hemera, which literally means 'gentle', (#2250).
At the time that Ison is at its closest approach to the sun, On Nov. 28, the sun will be in the constellation Scorpio, and the comet's tail, like a sword, will be shining out for all the world to see, with power and great glory. Luke 21:27. Luke 10:19; I Cor. 15:54, 55. By this time, the scorpion's death sting will have already been rendered harmless. Now is the time to give thanks, and forever more, since we see the day approaching. I Thess. 5:18.
When the sun goes down in the west in November, the constellation Auriga comes up on the horizon in the eastern evening sky. Auriga is the constellation known as the Good Shepherd, Psalm 23; and Isaiah 40:11 - "He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." It is also known as The Charioteer, since he sits on the Milky Way, which is considered to be the pathway of light in the heavens to carry souls homeward. The word 'Auriga', is derived from the Hebrew 'Owriyah' (strong's # 216, 217, 223), which literally means ' Lightning of God'. It was then transliterated into Greek, which was then transliterated into the Latin, resulting with 'Auriga'. The words 'aura', 'aureole', and 'aurora borealis' are derived from the Hebrew as well, indicating emanations of light and radiance. The constellation Auriga crosses the night sky from the eastern evening horizon to the western morning horizon in November, when the sun is moving fom Libra into scorpio. The comet itself is also like lightning in that it is coming from the east and is shining unto the west and will be seen all over the world on the eastern and western horizons, whereas, Auriga is seen primarily in the northern hemisphere. The fact that Auriga shines specifically from the east to the west from dusk till dawn every year only at this time, is made truly significant by the close approach of the comet with the sun in the time frame of the Festival of Lights/Thanksgiving.
The above sky chart shows Auriga in the eastern sky at approximately 9:00 pm in late November. It continues its course to the western horizon at dawn.
Matthew 24:27 - For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall the coming of the son of man be.
Matthew 24:27 - For as the lightning 'comes out of' ( Greek - exerchomai - issues, comes forth from) the east, and shines even unto the west; so (Greek - outo - thus, in this manner, on this wise) shall the coming (Greek - parousia - the presence, arrival) of the son of man be.
I Corinthians 15:23 - But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward, they that are Christ's at (in) his coming (parousia - presence, arrival).
I Corinthians 16:17 - I am glad of the coming (parousia - presence, arrival) of Stephanus and Fortunatus and Achaicus; for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied.
By these verses and others, we can ascertain that within the time frame of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving, 2013, we will be with the Lord.
Mark 13:35,36 - "Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping". Notice He does not say noon or midday.
There are about 80 days between Tishri 1, in September and The evening of Hanukkah, Nov. 27. According to E.W. Bullinger's From Jesus' resurrection from the dead until his ascension up into heaven was a period of 40 days, during which time he showed by many infallible proofs that He was alive, according to Acts 1:3, Mark 16:11-14, Luke 24:33-43. This 40 day period, according to Bullinger, represents "the action of grace, leading to and ending in revival and renewal", and "relates to enlarged dominion, or to renewed or extended rule", Number in Scripture, page 266).
Matthew 24: 31 - "And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." Mark 13:27 - "And then shall he send his angels and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven." Since Jupiter, representing the heavenly father, will be in Gemini till July, 2014, the 'great trumpet sound' of Castor and Pollux in Gemini will be sounding till then. God's people will be gathered up together by the angels from one end of heaven to the other, from one end of the earth to the other. Romans 8:38 - "For I am persuaded, that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
5. After Ison's closest approach with the sun in scorpio, Ison makes his ascent, going back up to heaven, Isaiah 41:3,4. Christ is in us and we are in Christ. Along the way, he is in close conjunction with a star in Ophiucus, named Yad, which means 'hand'. Ophiucus is the one wrestling with the serpent, and crushing the scorpion beneath his feet. The star in the head of this constellation is Ras Al Hagus, which means 'the head of him who holds'. Ophiucus represents the Lord Jesus Christ, who is finally freed from his job of restraining the serpent. The Greek interlinear says in II Thess. 2:7 - "For the mystery of lawlessness already is working; only there is He who restrains at present until out of the midst He be gone". The works that Christ is accomplishing in us and through us and with us on this earth is what is restraining the serpent until He comes. When we are taken up to heaven to be with the Lord, then the Lord will restrain the serpent no longer.
6. After Ison slices through the serpent, the next star it comes closest to is Hercules' knee. Since time began, he has been a man of labor, toiling on his knees. His days of hardship are over.
7. Polaris is the next conjunction, after Ison's closest approach to earth on Dec. 26, and after slicing through Draco, the dragon, at the end of December, 2013. Polaris is the North Star. All the other stars of heaven dance around this star. It is known as Kethab Al Shemayin, 'written in heaven'; Hebrews 12:23 - "To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect".
8. The last conjunction is with the star named Capella in Auriga, the constellation known as the Good Shepherd. Capella is also known as The Shepherd's star, Isaiah 40:11 - "He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young". It is also known as 'The Singer', Zeph. 3:17 - " The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing". Another name for this star is Aliothah - Strong's #448 - 'God of Consent' (BIG FAT YES!). And since acapella means to sing without instruments, Capella means to sing with instruments, but more importantly, Capella is a chapel, where the children of God worship Him. (It has nothing to do with goats. Capricorn is a goat). Another name for this star is Cornucopia, otherwise known as a Horn of Plenty. Eph. 2:7; I Peter 1:4.
9. After this, Ison moves into a bottom corner of the constellation Auriga, just above Gemini and away from other known stars where it circles around and around and around......."to infinity and beyond".
10. In this message is our redemption, our protection, our deliverance and our providence, a truly wonderful word of God's grace and blessing to His holy children. Abide in faith in this message from God. There are four things He wants us to continue to do until the Lord comes and takes us home:
1. Lift up our heads, for our redemption draws nigh, Luke 21:25-28; Titus 2:13 - Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our savior Jesus Christ.
2. Bless one another with this message. II Cor. 10:4 - For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Psalm 68:11 - The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.
3. Give thanks. I Thess. 5:18 - In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God concerning you.
4. Sing. Psalm 98:1 - O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm hath gotten him the victory.
Ps. 69:30 - I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving, Eph. 5:19,20.
Ps. 68:32, 33 - Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah. To Him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; He doth send out His voice, and that a mighty voice.
Hebrews 3:6,14 - But Christ as a son over His own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end.
We sing and give thanks to God because we are rejoicing for our very soon returning Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our King of Everything.
There are very many evil things going on in the world, but we are separate from these things, protected and fortified, we, and our households and loved ones, by faith, hope, and love, in Christ Jesus, our living Lord and savior.
Luke 21:25-27, "...And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things that are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see ( Greek - opsomai - "It denotes, not the action of seeing, but the state of him, and the affection of the mind of him to whose eye or mind the object is presented, to truly comprehend and know"; according to Bullinger's Greek Lexicon and Concordance.) the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh."
I John 3:1-3 - Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear ( Greek - phaneroo - manifest), we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.

*There are two parts to the coming of Christ, the first part is the coming of Christ for his saints, when we will meet the Lord in the air, which is the time of great rejoicing for the children of God. This is the message and fulfillment of that first part. The second part of Christ's coming is when he comes to the earth with his saints, which is the Great and Terrible day of the Lord, as specified in Joel 2:1-11, Jude 14, 15, and Rev. 19:11-21, when we will follow our King of kings and Lord of lords into battle against the devil and his cohorts, who shall be cast into the lake of fire, which victory is yet to come.
God's grace is sufficient for us.
Writer's note: When I first saw the pathway Of Ison through the heavenlies, I already knew that Gemini meant Blessing, and the comet's close approach to the sun on Thanksgiving Day meant the message was all very good news. I asked the Heavenly Father point blank, in Jesus' name, "Is this the sign of Christ's coming? I didn't hear an answer and I was about to give up in discouragement when I heard the Lord say, with great importance, "I, THE LORD, I, THE SON, AM DESCENDING FROM HEAVEN, SHOUTING! I AM THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL. I AM TRUMPETING! I AM THUNDERING!" So I wrote that down to make sure I wouldn't forget the wording of it, and I pondered and wondered, and then I said, "Lord, forgive me. I need to be clear on this. The word of God in I Thessalonians 4:17 says that you are coming with these things - with the trumpet, with the voice of the archangel. In order for this word that I just heard, to be true, the word 'with' in I Thess. would have to be 'in', not 'with'. It would have to be the Greek word en, not meta, not pros." So, I decided to check it out with my Greek Interlinear, and there it was, clear as daylight, the Greek word en. With God's help, it all came together after that.
I Samuel 2:8-10 - "He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.
