Joel Chapter 2 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "a fire devoureth before them (in 745 B.C.); and behind them a flame burneth (721-718 B.C.): the land is as the garden of Eden before them (green Milky Way), and behind them a desolate wilderness (black Zodiac); yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses (Sagittarius & Centaurus); and as horsemen, so shall they run (rotate)" (Joel 2:3-4).

In 745 B.C., Tiglath-Pileser (called "Pul" in the Bible -- 2 Kings 15:19; 1 Chr.5:26), the king of Assyria, began the first invasion against Israel in the reign of Menahem (2 Ki.15:19-20) and forced Israel to pay tribute. Then 24° years later, from 721 to 718 B.C., Shalmaneser beseiged Samaria three years in the reign of Hoshea (2 Ki.17:3-5). "In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and Habor by the river of Gozan, in the cities of the Medes" (2 Ki.17:6). This invasion terminated the Kingdom of Israel and 27,280 Israelites were led captive (see Sargon's Assyrian inscription). But Sargon didn't remove the entire nation of Israelites (see 2 Ki. 18:9-12; 2 Chr.30-31 & 34; cp. Hos.1:4 with 1:6).

Blow the Trumpet in Zion

2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain (Milky Way hump): let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains (black Zodiac): a great people and a strong (Assyria); there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

3 A fire devoureth before them (745 B.C.); and behind them a flame burneth (721-718 B.C.): the land is as the garden of Eden before them (Green Milky Way), and behind them a desolate wilderness (black Zodiac); yea, and nothing shall escape them.

4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses (Sagittarius & Centaurus); and as horsemen, so shall they run (rotate).

5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of (red radius line and Milky Way ) mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

6 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness (black Zodiac)...

7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall (Milky Way wall and red radius line wall) like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path (ecliptic): and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

11 And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army (The Assyrians are God's army): for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

12 Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a (solar) meat offering and a (red radius line) drink offering (wine) unto the Lord your God?

15 Blow the (red radius line with solar bell at end) trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

16 Gather the people (Gemini), sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts (Coma): let the bridegroom (Cepheus) go forth of his chamber, and the bride (Cassiopeia) out of her (red radius line) closet.

17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar (Ara), and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

18 Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

19 Yea, the Lord will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you (solar golden) corn, and (red radius line) wine, and (solar golden) oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:

20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army (Assyria), and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.

21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.

22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field(Leo; Ursa Major; Ursa Minor Taurus; Aries; etc.): for the pastures of the wilderness do (red radius line) spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength (golden solar figs and grapes).

23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the (red radius line) rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

24 And the floors shall be full of (solar golden) wheat, and the vats shall overflow with (red radius line) wine and (solar golden) oil.

25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you (a type and forerunner of Assyrian army).

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will (red radius line) pour out my spirit upon all (solar) flesh; and your (Gemini) sons and your (Virgo and Cassiopeia) daughters shall prophesy, your (Gemini) old men shall dream dreams, your (Gemini) young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my (red radius line) spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, (red radius line) blood, and (solar) fire, and (Milky Way) pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
