Amos Chapters 7,8 & 9 Star Charts: Clockwise from when God "set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel (ten tribes are like ten-limbed Scorpio -- Ez. 2:6): I (Ophiuchus) will not again pass by them any more" (721 B.C. is less than 360 degrees) (7:8) and from when "Jeroboam shall die by the sword" (7:11) (red radius line in blood red Antares in heart of Scorpio) in 745 B.C. till "Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land" (7:11) (lunar crescent sword in 721 B.C. as well as red radius line) and "a basket of summer fruit (Zodiac circle)... (when) the end is come upon my people of Israel" (in 721 B.C. they were mostly rotten); I will not again pass by them any more" (721 B.C. is less than 360 degrees) is 24 years or 288° months (24 x 12 = 288). Therefore, counting from the sun in Scorpio to the crescent in Leo gives 288° months.
Israel was a (Milky Way) wall that was not plumb (7:7). It was (leaning) ready to fall. Ten-legged scorpions infested the crack in this (Milky Way) wall just as the Ten-tribed Kingdom of Israel (Ez. 2:6) was no longer true to Scripture and was ready for captivity. The Israelite basket (Crater) of summer fruit had mostly turned rotten (black Zodiac)-- except for a banana and an orange (or Sycamore fig).
In exile near India, Israel turned to Buddhism where all heads were bald and everyone wore (orange) sackcloth and mourned and was celibate. They continued in the "sins of Samaria" and worshipped the "gods of Dan" -- bulls and cows (8:10-14).
A Plumb Line and a Basket of Summer Fruit
7:1 Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me; and, behold, he formed grasshoppers (Scorpio is alternately a grasshopper) in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth (radius line from sun seed); and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.
2 And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the (red radius line root) grass of the land (black Zodiac), then I said, O Lord God, forgive, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
3 The Lord repented for this: It shall not be, saith the Lord.
4 Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord God called to contend by fire (sun fire on ten tribe-limbs of Scorpio-Israel), and it devoured the great deep (black Zodiac), and did eat up a (red radius line) part.
5 Then said I, O Lord God, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.
6 The Lord repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord God.
7 Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord (Ophiuchus) stood upon a wall (Milky Way wall is not straight. Scorpions have infested the crack in this decaying wall) made by a plumbline (radius line attached to sun), with a plumbline in his hand (Ophiuchus's left hand is over ten-limbed Scorpio).
8 And the Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline (radius line attached to sun). Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel (ten tribes are like ten-limbed Scorpio): I will not again pass by them any more (721 B.C. is less than 360 degrees):
9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate (Scorpio's clearing circle or Zodiac burnt circle or Milky Way hill), and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword (red radius line from lunar crescent shot from Sagittarius).
10 Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.
11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword (red radius line in blood red Antares in heart of Scorpio, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land (lunar crescent sword in 721 B.C. as well as red radius line).
12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's (red radius line) chapel, and it is the king's court.
14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit (orange figs) :
15 And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.
16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the Lord: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac (a plumb bob drops on Scorpio; a banana sword drops on Leo).
17 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife (Virgo with lunar horns temple harlot headdress) shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons (Gemini or Lion's ass or Leo's tail) and thy daughters (Cassiopeia & Coma; Lion's ass or Leo's tail) shall fall by the (red radius line) sword, and thy land shall be divided by line (plumb line); and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.
2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit (Zodiac circle). Then said the Lord unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel (in 721 B.C.); I will not again pass by them any more (721 B.C. is less than 360 degrees).
3 And the songs of the (pagan Israelite) temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord God: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence (black Zodiac rotates down under horizon in burial).
4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,
5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the (solar gold) shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit (black Libra or a banana for a gold coin in the red radius line scales)?
6 That we may buy the poor for silver (lunar crescent), and the needy for a pair of (solar) shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat (yellow lunar chaff)?
7 The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.
8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon (solar plumb bob), and I will darken the earth in the clear day (black Zodiac):
10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning (Buddhist feasts), and all your songs into lamentation (Buddhist songs); and I will bring up sackcloth (orange sackcloth of Buddhists) upon all loins, and baldness upon every (scorpio solar and Virgo lunar) head (Buddhist monks and temple prostitutes); and I will make it as the mourning of an only son (Buddha), and the end thereof as a bitter day.
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a (black) famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.
13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for (sexual) thirst (celibate monks and nuns in Buddhism).
14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth (worship of cows and bulls in India was transplanted from Samaria); and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
9:1 I saw the Lord standing upon the altar (Ophiuchus at Ara): and he said, (red radius line) Smite the (lunar) lintel of the door, that the (red radius line) posts may shake: and (red radius line) cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the (red radius line) sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.
2 Though they (red radius line) dig into hell (with lunar or solar scoop), thence shall mine hand take them; though they (red radius line) climb up to (solar or lunar) heaven, thence will I bring them down:
3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel (Milky Way Mount), I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the (Hydra) serpent, and he shall bite them:
4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the (red radius line) sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil (solar and lunar eye), and not for good.
5 And the Lord God of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.
6 It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven (the Bible has many heavenly stories based on the Zodiac), and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name.
7 Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the Lord (black Zodiac). Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord God (solar and lunar eyes) are upon the sinful kingdom (Scorpio and harlot Virgo), and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the Lord.
9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the (red radius line or lunar) sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
11 In that day will I raise up the (red radius line) tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this.
13 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the (Ophiuchus) plowman shall overtake the (lunar) reaper, and the (Ophiuchus) treader of (solar) grapes him that soweth seed (lunar seed in Leo's manure); and the (Milky Way hump) mountains shall drop sweet (red radius line) wine, and all the hills shall (red radius line) melt.
14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall (red radius line) build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant (red radius line) vineyards, and drink the (red radius line) wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the (orange and banana) fruit of them.
15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.
