## ASTRONOMY Confirms The BibleWhen the time period of each planet's revolution around the sun is compared in round numbers to the one adjacent to it, their fractions are Fibonacci numbers! Beginning with Neptune and moving inward toward the sun, the ratios are 1/2 (Uranus: 30,688 earth days to Neptune: 60,193 earth days), 1/3 (Saturn: 10,670 to Uranus: 30,688), 2/5 (Jupiter:4,332 to Saturn:10,670), 3/8 (Ceres: 1,681 to Jupiter: 4,332), 5/13 (Mars: 687 to Ceres: 1,681), 8/21 (Venus: 225 to Mars: 687) and 13/34 (Mercury:88 to Venus: 225). These are all Fibonacci numbers in proper sequence, skipping Earth, as if SOMEONE knew that Earth was the vantage point from which to see the pattern. 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,... But this doesn't mean Earth is haphazard. It also has an intermediate set of Fibonacci ratios of 8/13 (Earth: 365 to Mars: 687) and 13/21 (Venus: 225 to Earth: 365). Who told these planets to synchronize precisely with eachother? How could arbitrary haphazard chance account for this kind of order and design? This kind of design demands a DESIGNER. An interplanetary SYNODIC is the time it takes for one planet to "lap" another planet in their revolutions around the sun. The sidereal years and synodics of all planets until Uranus are related by the Golden ratio to a statistical significance of over 99%. Mercury's sidereal year is 88 days. The Mercury-Venus synodic is 144.52 days. 88 x 1.61803 = 142.38, which is within 2% of the Mercury-Venus synodic. The deviations are small, in comparison to the similarities. In fact, the planets deviate from the series less than 1/1000 of one percent. Fibonacci's golden ratio is deliberately BUILT IN. This evidence of DESIGN cannot be explained by natural law or natural selection, because it has no conceivable survival value and no conceivable cause other than DELIBERATE DESIGN for an AESTHETIC purpose. In order for this phenomenon to take place, ALL of the planets had to be a PARTICULAR MASS in order to move at a PARTICULAR PERIOD at a PARTICULAR DISTANCE. If any of them had been smaller than they are, the pattern could not exist. If any of them had been bigger than they are, the pattern could not exist. Thus there is evidence that the SIZE of the planets was DELIBERATELY CHOSEN to make the planets move in a particular and AESTHETIC HARMONY. This harmony was designed by a brilliant ARCHITECT.
The Titius-Bode Law, discovered in 1766, drew attention to the fact that the distances of the planets from the sun observe the following
proportion. Write the numbers 0, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, each of which,
excepting the first, is double the number which precedes it. Add 4 to
each of these, making the series 4, 7, 10, 16, 28, 52, 100, 196, 388. These
numbers, with the exception of 28, are proportional to the distances from
the sun of the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto while the number 28 corresponds with the distance of the largest asteroid, Ceres, in the the asteroid
belt between Mars and Jupiter. The actual distances of the planets from
the sun are: Mercury 3.9, Venus 7.2, Earth 10, Mars 15.2, Ceres 27.7,
Jupiter 52, Saturn 95.4, Uranus 191.8 and Pluto 395.2 astronomical units. (One astronomical unit equals the earth’s average distance from the sun).This law was discovered prior to Uranus (1781), Ceres (1801), Neptune (1846) and Pluto (1930) being discovered, and yet worked for three of the four. Neptune, the exception, is located almost exactly half-way between Uranus and Pluto, as though to fill in the half-octave position. What the Titius-Bode law essentially means is that planetary orbits become progressively greater by a ratio of approximately 2:1 (the ratio of the octave) with increasing distance from the sun. (Neptune follows a ratio of 1.5 rather than 2. It is 300.6 AU.) Check this
amazing sequence in any encyclopedia. How could arbitrary haphazard chance
account for this kind of order and design? Furthermore, the orbits of satellites around moons show the same mathematical spacing, as do the orbits of electrons around an atomic nucleus (in the Bohr model of the atom). Also, the average orbital radii of the four inner and four outer planets reflect eachother on either side of the asteroid belt. For instance, if we multiply together the orbital radii of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus, we get virtually the same value as multiplying the orbital radii of Mercury, Earth, Saturn, and Neptune (5.51 x 1034 km as compared with 5.56 x 1034 km).
Another way of expressing the Titius-Bode Law is to list each planet's comparative distance from Mercury. If the distance doubles for each planet, our series should be Mercury 0, Venus 1, Earth 2, Mars 4, Ceres (asteroid belt) 8, Jupiter 16, Saturn 32, Uranus 64, and Pluto 128. The actual distances are Mercury 0, Venus 1.1, Earth 2, Mars 3.7, Ceres 7.8, Jupiter 15.7, Saturn 29.9, Uranus 61.4, and Pluto 127.7. (The unit of measurement is defined as half the distance from Mercury to Earth.) How could this happen by accident? Johannes Kepler (1571-1630), the German astronomer, discovered an amazing relationship between a planet's average distance from the sun and the time it takes to orbit the sun: the ratio of the square of a planet's period of revolution (T) to the cube of its average distance (r) from the sun is always the same constant number (T²/r³ = constant). For instance, if we measure T in earth years and r in astronomical units, we get: Venus: 0.61521²/0.7233³ = 1.0002 Another interesting phenomenon is planet SPIN RATE. Planets' SPIN RATE occur in pairs -- at least three times. If the chances of this happening are 1 in 100 per pair, then there is one chance in a million this would happen by chance (100 x 100 x 100). The three pairs of twin spins in our solar system are: 1. Mars and Earth: 1,477 minutes (24.62 hours) to 1,436 (23.92 hours) (97.2% similar). 2. Neptune and Uranus: 948 minutes to 970 minutes (96.5% similar) and 3. Saturn and Jupiter: 615 minutes to 590 minutes (96% similar). Even the TILTS of the two spin axes of Mars (23.44 degrees) and the Earth (23.59 degrees) are almost identical. The ORBITS of the PLANETS, the PRECESSION of the EQUINOX, the MOON'S DIAMETER and DISTANCE from EARTH have nothing whatsoever to do with eachother. All four are independent phenomena, but all are designed around the number 2160 (not to mention the 108, 432 and 864 multiples of 216 above). Isn't this evidence of a Creator? Even our selection of 49 laps wasn't arbitrary because 49 solar years almost exactly coincide with 606 lunar months with an error of only 32 hours. Sun and moon return almost to their original positions relative to eachother. If 2,160 years is one twelfth of the precession, 25,920 should be the entire precession of the equinox according to this theory. However, some astronomers say the complete cycle is just 25,791 years. These are the two extremes. H. Grattan Guinness, another astronomer, chose the mean average between two of the extremes of his day and came up with 25,846 years and 9 lunations. He did this because he noticed Psalm 90:10 which says "The days of our years are threescore years and ten" or 70 years. In addition, the normal 40 weeks prior to birth in the womb make the total existence of man to be 70 x 365.2425 = 25,566.975 + (40 x 7 =) 280 = 25,846.975 days. In other words, the length of a man's life is the same number of days as the length of time it takes for the solar system to wobble 360 degrees in years. Ezekiel 4:6 and Numbers 14:34 both teach that a day symbolizes a year. Is this just a bizarre coincidence? Or did the Master Astronomer decide to build two unrelated inventions by the same blueprint? But why examine only two parallels? We breathe 18 times a minute on average and there are 60 minutes per hour and 24 hours per day. Therefore 18 x 60 x 24 = 25,920 times we breathe in one day, just as there are 25,920 years in the precession of the equinox.
This figure (25,846.975) does not differ from either extreme by more than
two lunations (i.e. 886 or 890). This is the length of time for the earth's
wobbling axis to complete 360 degrees and return to its original angle.
In this period the sun marches backward through twelve constellations at the rate of 20 minutes per year. It is interesting that each solar year is 5.2425 days longer than the Zodiacal year of 360. In the whole period of the Precession of the Equinox, this difference grows to 370 years. Therefore, God notified us cryptically at the Flood when the 360-day year became a 365.2425-day year by causing Noah in the ark to float for 370 days (Gen. 7:11 to 8:14), just as the solar year floats away from the Zodiacal year 370 years, each day for a year (Num. 14:34; Ez. 4:6). This is when that change occurred. The lunar month is 29.53059 days and the solar year is 365.2425 days.
Therefore, reducing 25,846 years and 9 lunations to lunations we get 319,680
lunations (25,846 years/19-year cycles =1360.3; 1360.3 x 235 lunations per 19 solar years = 319,670.5 lunations; 319,670.5 + 9 extra lunations = 319,680). If we divide 319,680 lunations by 12 constellations we get
26,640 lunations per sign (or 26,640 LUNAR MONTHS IN EVERY 30 DEGREES OF PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOX WHICH IS PRECISELY THE SAME NUMBER AS THE INDEPENDENT AND UNRELATED FIGURE OF 26,640 LUNAR YEARS IN ALL 360 DEGREES OF PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOX (319,680/12 = 26,640). We cannot account for this kind of order in nature by mere haphazard chance. It can't be just a coincidence. Furthermore, if we divide this by
30 degrees per sign we get 888 lunations per degree. In other words, 360
x 888 = 319,680. It is also the numerical value of Jesus in Greek: Iesous.
Furthermore, if we divide 26,640 lunar years by 4 seasons, we get 6660 years.
To summarize, 25,847 solar years = 26,640 lunar years which are 30 x 888 or 40 x 666. All of the numbers used in the Bible have an astronomical significance. General Vallancey says, "The Sarus, (in Hebrew S=300, + a= 70 + r=200
+ v=6 + s=90 = 666) according to Berosus, consisted of 6660 days.... Suidas,
an author contemporary with Syncellus, says the Sarus was a period of
lunar months amounting to 18 years and a half, or 222 moons (222 x 30
= 6660). Pliny mentions a period of 223 lunar months, which Dr. Halley
thinks is a false reading, and proposes the amendment by reading 18 years
and 6 intercalary months, which agrees with Suidas."
We can trace the origin of the number 666 from astrology. The Zodiac is a narrow band about 18 degrees in width making a complete circuit of the sky around the earth.This was symbolized in pagan art by a serpent with his tail in his mouth forming a circle. This represented eternal life. Astrology taught that the fate of mankind was always decided by the position of the stars. Now the chief gods of the Zodiac were the 7 fate-controlling planets who serpentined their way through the 36 rooms of the Zodiac. The 7 planets travel through the narrow band of the zodiac at varying speeds -- representing the seven-headed serpent (Rev. 12:3). The Zodiac band itself was divided into 12 houses, one for each month of the year, and each house was divided into three rooms, making 36 rooms in all, one for each 10 degrees of the Zodiac circle. This is the origin of our present method of time-keeping. For instance, the dial of a clock is derived from the 12 houses of the Zodiac. Thus the Zodiac was a Heavenly Clock with which today we measure time. Our ruler has 12 inches to a foot. These systems of measuring both time and length were based upon the 12 houses of the Zodiac. We have 12 units to a dozen. The original Roulette wheels have a 360 degree circle with 36 divisions of 10 degrees each, with a blank or zero division to represent the 5 days beyond the 360 days in a year. There are 36 numbered cards in a 52 card deck. One card each represents the 52 weeks with 12 face cards, four Kings, four Queens, and four Jacks, and four suits that represent the four seasons. Why do fortune-tellers use a deck of cards to predict the future? Because the deck of cards is derived from Astrology. Burn them! Our present townships are composed of 36 square miles because, as several writers point out, the ancients divided the earth according to the divisions in the sky. Just as truly as our 12-inch ruler was once a symbol of the 12-house Zodiac, so is our 36-inch yardstick based upon the 36 rooms into which the heavenly houses were divided. Furthermore, the remainder of the sky outside the Zodiac band was also divided into 36 constellations, 15 on the south side and 21 on the north side. A god of each constellation was appointed to rule over one of the 36 rooms of the Zodiac. Every star in the sky was considered as a god and the abode of departed spirits and was included in a constellation, over whom was appointed a god who ruled over a Zodiac room. Each Zodiac house-god rules over a month of the year, and the 7 planetary house gods regulated, according to Astrology, the affairs of mankind by their relative positions in the various rooms of the Zodiac. Over them all ruled the Sun-god (the All-Seeing Eye) who was considered the central fire from which each had sprung. Pagans believed that all other gods were but emanations of the Sun-god. Now 1, 6, 12, 36, 111, and 666 were the most sacred numbers in Astrology. Priests of Sun worship used the numbers mathematically by the way the stars travel across the sky to predict future events. They invented magic charts to perform this most popular form of divination. Like the Roulette Wheel, the charts were divided into 36 numbered divisions. There were six columns in all directions with the numbers 1 to 36 placed inside the entire chart. Any direction you add the columns, they add to 111. There are six squares in each column and 6 x 111 = 666. If you add all the numbers from 1 to 36 they will add up to 666. So you see, the number 36 was a sacred number that identified with the 36 room-gods of the Zodiac, and the number 666 was a summary number of the Sun-god, because it was his sacred number as the ruler of the Zodiac. Is it just coincidence that the earth's axis is tilted 23.4 degrees from vertical which is 66.6 degrees from hortizontal? Incidentally the surface of the earth at the equator spins at 1037 miles per hour. The circumference of the Earth in miles is 24,901. These figures seem haphazard until we divide 24,901 by 1037, and get exactly 24 hours per day. Furthermore, the earth is exactly 49 times larger (7 x 7) than the moon.The moon completes its journey around the earth on the 28th day (7 x 4). In Genesis 37:9-10
we read that Joseph dreamed a dream in which his father Jacob was symbolized
by the sun and his mother Leah (Rachel was dead -- 35:19) was symbolized
by the moon. This symbolism can be explained as a reference to the woman's
MENSTRUAL CYCLE. The moon was originally created with a precise 28-day
sidereal orbit around the earth. The time it takes the moon to orbit 360
degrees around the earth today is about 27 and 1/3 days (sidereal month).
In other words, the time it takes the moon to realign with the same star. The main object of astronomers has been to somehow harmonize the solar day (24h) with the lunar month (29d 12h 44m 3s) (29.53058818) with the solar year (365d 5h 48m 49s) (365.24219879) with no remainder. These three fundamental measures of time are incommensurate with eachother. Therefore mankind has chosen to use artificial days, months and years. How many days make a month? How many months make a year? How many days make a year? The answers involve fractions. Meton's cycle of 19 years harmonizes the solar year (19 solar years) with the lunar month (235 lunar months) with a remainder of about 2 hours and 3 minutes by which the solar year finishes earlier than the lunar. (Solar years: 19 x 365.2421988 = 6,939.6018 days. Lunations 235 x 29.5305882 = 6,939.6882). M. de Cheseaux's cycle of 315 years harmonizes the solar and lunar years within 3 hours and 24 minutes. The Metonic 19-year cycle gets rid of most of it's remainder in a larger Biblical cycle of 2,300 years. Cheseaux's cycle, 315 years, is one quarter of a larger Biblical cycle of 1,260 years (Dan. 8:12; 12:7; Rev. 12:6,14) which is ten times more accurate than Meton's cycle. After 1260 years the sun and moon return, within less than half a degree, to the same point of the ecliptic precisely, and that within an hour of eachother. If we subtract 1260 from 2300 we get 1040 which is the long-awaited solar-lunar cycle that harmonizes all three measurements: the year, month and day "with an almost imperceptible error" (Error is .11 of a day.)(Parker's Celestial Cycles, p.22). In fact, this "Daniel Cycle" reaches an error of one day in 15,056 years (1040 tropical years = 379851.8867520 days; 12863 synodic months = 379851.9560166 days). No other cycle shorter than 1040 years so nearly approaches being a year-month-day cycle except only the cycle of 706 years whose greatest error is .10 of a day. (The number 706 is the sum 391 (Rev. 9:15) and 315 (one quarter of 1260)). In 1906, Dr. W. Bell Dawson discovered that the average of 2300 and 1260 lunar years, or 1780 lunar years, was almost exactly equal to 1727 solar years, giving a cycle of even higher accuracy than the 1040 "Daniel Cycle." The 1780 Dawson Cycle has an error of one day in 19,960 years, or between eight and nine minutes in a century (1727 tropical years = 630773.2773276 days; 21360 synodic months = 630773.3639520 days). Notice that 2300 lunar years = 2,231.517159 solar years and 1260 lunar years =1,222.483313 solar years. The average is 1780 lunar years which = 1,727.000236 solar years. This has an inaccuracy of only two hours in 1,727 years. Therefore, the Author of the Bible knew the answer long before astronomers discovered it. Thus 1260 is a MULTIPLE of 315, 1040 is the DIFFERENCE of 2300 - 1260, and 1780 is the MEAN AVERAGE of 1260 and 2300. All derived from the pages of Daniel. It is noteworthy that 12 x 12 x 12 = 1728 which is the number after 1727. New Jerusalem is 12000 furlongs cubed. Just as there are seven vibration frequencies for the musical notes, but the scale is incomplete without the eighth, so the eighth is the first in the next series, so that the "octave" really proceeds by sevens, not eights, and the Jubilee by forty-nines, not fifties. Thus 1727 is the cycle but 1728 is an important beginning of the next cycle. Even more amazing is the fact that
if 2520 lunar and 2520 solar years begin together, the former will run
out 75 years before the latter, an astronomical fact unknown to astronomical
science in Daniel's day and yet it is mentioned (Dan. 12:11-13). Notice
that there are 75 years difference between 1260 (the second half of 2520)
and 1335 days. (Because of the fact that 2520 Prophetic Years of 360 days are 35 years less than solar, some Bible students believe 1290 is a mistranslation, and should instead read 1295.). It is noteworthy that the number 2520 has as its factors three numbers used universally by the ancients to measure time: 7, the number of days in the week. 30, the number of days in the month, and 12, the number of months in the year. Furthermore 2520 is a number that harmonizes lunar months and days. 2520 lunar years is 893,004.72 days which is a nearly perfect cycle harmonizing the 29.5305 month with the day because on dividing 893,004 by 12 and then 7, the result is 10,631 days for 30 lunar years, giving the length of the lunar year a value of 354 11/30 which is 354.3666667 (The lunar year of 12 months is actually 354.3670582 days). Each year of 354 days can therefore be divided into months of 29 and 30 days alternately; and in the cycle of 30 lunar years, 11 intercalary days are required. The number 2520 is divisible by every number from 1 to 10. A curious discovery is that the Centigrade and Farenheit Scales of Temperature are so related to eachother that 1260 degrees Centigrade is equivalent to 2300 degrees Farenheit. That is, Temperature Centigrade (Celsius) = (5/9) X (Temperature Farenheit - 32). Can such an unlikely rerlationship be mere coincidence? Farenheit's Scale has water freezing at 32 degrees and boiling at 212 degrees at sea level. The Celsius (Centigrade) Scale has water freezing at 0 degrees and boiling at 100 degrees at sea level. Both use Mercury. The earth's diameter is 7920 miles and a "furlong" is 660 feet or 7920 inches. Furthermore, the dimensions of New Jerusalem are 12000 furlongs per side or 12000 x 660 feet which equals 7,920,000 feet. Just coincidence? The sum of the radii of both the Earth and Moon (in miles) is 3960 + 1080 = 5040. This means that the sum of their diameters is also the number of minutes in a week (7 days × 24 hours × 60 minutes = 10,080) Even
more interesting, the 400 years of Israel in Egypt (Gen. 15:13) were measured
by Egyptian years (365 days) and 400 Egyptian years (365 x 400 =146000)

as Jupiter loses one prophetic month in 2520 solar years, If we draw a circle representing the earth -- which has a mean radius (in round numbers) of 3960 miles -- and then draw a square around it, the square will have a perimeter equivalent to 31,680 miles. If we then draw a second circle with a circumference equal to the perimeter of the square, its radius will be 5040 miles (using 22/7 as a good approximation to pi) -- or 1080 miles more than the smaller circle. Just as 3960 miles is the radius of the earth, 1080 miles is the radius of the moon. In other words, the relative dimensions of the earth and moon square the circle. The same exact numbers and proportions given in feet rather than miles are found at Stonehenge (see Michel, 1995, 2001). The outer (sarsen) circle has a mean radius of 50.4 feet and a circumference of 316.8 feet. This is equal to the perimeter of a square drawn around the smaller (bluestone) circle, which has a radius of 39.6 feet This radius is also equal to the diameter of the circle defined by the inner U-shaped structure. All of these measurements prove that the English foot and mile are at least as ancient as Stonehenge and, like many other ancient systems of measures, are closely related to the dimensions of sun, earth and moon. Square the Circle with the physical sizes of Earth and Moon. When we compare the size of Earth and Moon strange geometric synchronicities appear. The most fascinating of all is the ancient philosophical concept of "squaring the circle" -- drawing a square with the same area as that of the circle. You can also "square the circle" with equal perimeters, which is what the Earth-Moon system does, to a very high degree of accuracy (99.97%).The Earth and Moon’s diameters can be described as a simple ratio, 11:3, when comparing one to another. It turns out that this ratio is the solution to "squaring the circle" (of equal perimeter). The Moon describes a circle that has the same circumference as the square’s perimeter that surrounds Earth. This fact was discovered or rediscovered by the late and great John Michell.The magic number found in these geometries is 273, or more specifically 2732. I believe this is an overlooked constant in our matrix of reality. Here are some findings on this number. The ratio of Earth’s diameter to Moon’s diameter is 0.273. (The moon is 27.3 % the size of the Earth). Comparing a square’s perimeter to a circle having an equal circumference, the circle’s diameter is 27.3% longer than the edge of the square. Inscribe a circle inside a square. The four corners make up 27.32% of the total area. This is reached through the formula: (4 – pi) / pi = 0.2732 The relationship of the Great Pyramid’s height to half its base is 1.273:1 (or 4:π) and thus ‘squares the circle’. -273.2 degrees Celsius is the temperature of Absolute Zero. 27.32 is the freezing point of water on Kelvin scale (K). Absolute zero of water is 273.2% colder than the temperature it takes to boil. 273 days = average length of pregnancy (10 sidereal months). 27.3 days = human menstrual cycle. 27.32 earth days is the sidereal period of the moon (moon completes one full rotation, one ‘moonth’). 1/273.2 per C is the expansion/reduction of gas (Gasses expand by 1/273 of their volume with every degree on the Celsius/centigrade scale). Sunspots revolve about the Sun’s surface in 27.3 days. Water changes phase at 273°K. 273 days from the summer solstice to the vernal equinox. 2,730,000 is the circumference of the Sun in miles. The triple point of water is defined to take place at 273.16 K. The Cosmic Background Radiation is 2.73 K. The Earth and Moon orbital periods are reciprocals. 1/27.32 = 0.0366 (366 days in a sidereal year) (1/366 =.002732) 27.32 days in one ‘moonth’. 273 m/s2 = acceleration of the Sun. .273 cm/s2 = acceleration of the moon along its path around the Earth. The square and circle, or in 3-d, the cube and sphere, are key concepts in the teachings of Walter Russell, whom Walter Cronkite declared to be “The Leonardo Da Vinci of our time”. It’s also interesting to note that 2732 – 2372 (its palindrome) = 360 which is a superior highly composite number, meaning it has a ton of divisors. 360 is also the number of degrees in a circle.We have Scott Onstott to thank for many of these findings. His website SecretsinPlainSight.com is a mind bender and is highly recommended. Fred Cameron and Adri de Groot also reveal cracks in the matrix of our holofractal reality, using this overlooked constant. But the solar system is much more than a precise, synchronized clock. The Arab astronomer Albumazar said that "many attributed to them (signs of the Zodiac) a divine and prophetic virtue." Cicero said that "The signs are measured out, so that in so many descriptions divine wisdom might appear." Originally the stars were intended by God to "be for SIGNS" of the Zodiac (Gen. 1:14). God calls all the stars "by their NAMES" (Ps. 147:4). He told Abraham, "Look toward heaven and recount the STORY of the star NAMES in order. They will tell you about your descendant " (Gen. 15:5). Furthermore, each of the twelve signs was associated with one of the twelve tribes of Israel (Gen. 37:9-11; Gen. 49 ; Deut. 33). This is NOT ASTROLOGY (Isa. 47:13-14). Deuteronomy 4:19 condemns astrology which is defined as "WORSHIP" of the sun, moon and stars. Psalm 19:1-4 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge (using sign language). They have no (verbal) speech, they use no (vocal) words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice (sign language) goes out into all the earth, their (picto-graphic) words to the ends of the world." Yes, "By his Spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent (Drago Constellation)" (Job 26:13). God made the zodiac (Job 9:9). Josephus tells us that righteous Seth invented astronomy (Ant. 1:2:3). Yes, "their sound went into all the earth" (Rom. 10:18). In Acts 17:27-28, Paul quoted from Aratus's poem Phaenomina written about the constellations around 270 B.C. It was these STAR NAMES that "preached the gospel unto Abraham" (Gal. 3:8). Ancient Egyptian zodiacs such as the one in the Tombs of the Kings at Karnak have the image of a sphinx (woman's head with lion's body whose name means "bind together" from Greek "sphiggo") between Leo and Virgo showing where the circle begins and ends. In the zodiac of Denderah (2000 B.C., a picture of a sphinx is also placed between Virgo and Leo. But how can we understand this sign language? Start reading at Virgo with the brightest star in that constellation and end with the faintest star. Then move to Libra and do the same. Etcetera. When the names are put together into a sentence in order of each star's brightness, a sentence is constructed for each constellation. The constellations begin with our Lord's birth from VIRGO (a virgin) and end with His return as the "LION of the tribe of Judah." "Thy will be done on earth as it is in (the astronomical) HEAVEN" (Matt. 6:10). We are instructed to "measure the (360-degree celestial) temple of God" (11:1) counting degrees clockwise. The original meaning of the zodiac was that a Virgin (Virgo pregnant with sun) would give birth to a son of God pictured by the actual sun as it passed through her body. Divine scales of justice (sun in Libra) would require His death (Scorpio's sting is orange swelling sore) for the sins of humanity. But the dual-natured Savior would conquer death (Sagittarius' face shining like the sun) and give life to his followers (a living fish) by his sacrifice (Capricorn goat a burnt sacrifice) and let them drink the living waters of the Holy Spirit (Aquarius pouring out the sun) which then breaks the bands of sin (sun cutting Pisces' bands) because the Lamb was wounded for our transgression (sun wound in Aries' side). He will return (Taurus with golden sun crown on his head), this dual-natured Savior with fiery words (Gemini), and shelter his people (sun in Cancer) from the day of Wrath when this "Lion of the tribe of Judah" will destroy that old serpent the Devil (Leo pouncing on Hydra). FIRST COMING AS SUFFERING SERVANT: 1. VIRGO -- Promised seed of the woman (SUN in her belly). A virgin (Isa. 7:14; Rev. 12:1-5) holding a branch (Jer. 23:5-6) and an ear of grain.

The six fall-winter constellations stand on Mount Ebal because they illustrate those months with less vitamin D3 from the sun
All ancient calendars were based on a 360-day year. The Chaldean, Assyrian, Egyptian, Hebrew, Persian, Greek, Phoenician, Carthaginian, Hindu, Chinese Mayan, Etruscan, Teuton, and others. They all changed around 701 B.C. at the time of Hezekiah's sundial moving back. We believe that originally Earth had a 360-day year, and Mars had a 720-day year. These two planets had 2:1 resonant orbits (reinforced vibration at same frequency). That is not an unusual phenomenon. For instance Saturn is in a 2:5 orbital resonance with Jupiter. Neptune and Pluto are in 3:2 orbital resonance. Previous to 701 B.C., Mars was likely in 6:1 resonance with Jupiter and 2:1 resonance with earth. Every 108 years the paths of Mars and Earth would cross with a net result that at perihelion (March 20-21) the earth would gain energy and Mars would lose energy; while at aphelion (Oct. 25) the earth would lose energy and Mars would gain energy. Notice the 108-year cyclic nature of just some of the Bible catastrophes: 1404 B.C. (Joshua's Long Day), 1080 B.C.(Samuel's Catastrophe), 972 B.C. (David's Catastrophe), 864 B.C. (Elijah's Catastrophe), 756 B.C. (Joel-Amos Catastrophe). The fly-by of 701 B.C. resulted in Mars losing 33 days bringing it to its present orbit of 687 days while earth gained over five days resulting in our present 365.24-day orbit (rate of speed decreased). Joshua's long day (Joshua 10:12-13) in 1404 B.C. resulted in about a 5-degree pole shift which would have been sufficient to cause the sun and moon to apparently remained stationary. Earth and Mars just "happen" to have tilts of 23.5 and 24 degrees respectively. Earth and Mars "happen" to have almost identical spin rates. Hezekiah in 701 B.C. solved the problem of a new orbit speed by adding a month seven times every 19 years. Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels was written 151 years before astronomers discovered the two moons of Mars and yet this book mentions the two moons of Mars with uncanny accuracy. How is this possible? Some scholars believe Jonathan Swift used ancient manuscripts as source material for his writings. Such manuscripts were written by people who lived prior to 701 B.C. when Mars flew much closer to earth. This would also account for the universal terror and worship of the war-god Mars in ancient legends as it became 50 times the size of the moon in the sky. (see The Long Day of Joshua and Six Other Catastrophes by Patten, Hatch and Steinhauer for more) This explains why sites like Stonehenge have ceased to perform their original function. The alignment of the stones no longer point to the mid-winter and mid-summer sunrises. They did before 1500 B.C.(Exodus was 1446 B.C.) The earth's axis and speed of rotation have changed sufficiently to make them useless. Next Lesson: Christianity Before Christ? | Back to Home | Email Us |
