Part One: A Celestial “X” Marks An Ominous Spot In History

Those who have read my articles about the Zodiac connection of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse with the Mayan date for the end of the world, and/or my other Language of God series books (see: should be somewhat familiar with the concepts of Sacred Astronomy. For those who want to know more about this ancient mystical science, let me offer this brief explanation.

According to the 1st Century historian Josephus, this celestial science was perfected by the Sethites prior to the Great Flood. This science centered around interpreting the immense storybook that the One Triune God created in the heavens - a story with forty-eight star-studded constellations serving as chapters, and a host of stars, moons, planets, comets, and asteroids serving to set the stage in each.

According to the antediluvian prophet Enoch the Sethite, this celestial storybook reveals every event in human history over a period of 7,000 years - from the creation of Adam and Eve, until the Last Judgment. In this particular article, however, we will only be concerning ourselves with significant celestial events that occurred between 1996 and 2008, just as we focused on future events between 2008 and 2017 in my articles: “The Hidden Prophecy in Psalm 108,” and “The Amazing Heavenly Anti-Peace Sign Formed by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” These past events involve both total Lunar Eclipses, and comets that were visible from various locations on Earth, and which appear to be issuing an ominous warning to all humanity.

First, let's focus on the comet sightings. In 1996 and 1997, the skies over our Earth were visited with two remarkable comets. In both cases, these comets passed through the constellation called Perseus, crossing at right angles to each other over a particular star with an ominous name. That star is named “Rosh Satan” in Hebrew, which means “Head of Satan.” It is also called Al Gol, or Al Ghoul, meaning “The Ghoul.” In ancient times, Perseus actually foreshadowed King David’s slaying of Goliath. In modern times, however, the death of Medusa signifies the much sought-after demise of another diabolical figure in history known as the Antichrist - whom Christ will one day utterly destroy.

The star Al Ghoul appears in the severed head of Medusa, which is being clutched in the heavenly Perseus' left-hand. In Greek mythology, Perseus was a warrior hero who killed the evil snake-haired gorgon called Medusa. Medusa’s head, it was said, could turn anyone looking upon it into stone. The winged steed Pegasus was supposedly birthed from Medusa’s blood, and Perseus rode on Pegasus when he rescued the Princess Andromeda from becoming Cetus the Sea Monster’s dinner. This myth is important because it shows an ancient interpretation of several constellations that are near to each other in the heavens, and which appear to show a hidden knowledge of the original, divinely-written story in the Zodiac that some Christian scholars call the Gospel in the Stars.

Since our western version of Astrology is accredited to the ancient Greeks, it seems shocking that most scholars ignore the fact that almost all Greek religious myths appear to be derived from the 48 ancient constellations of the Zodiac. In fact, this correlation can be seen in the mythologies of all the ancient cultures surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. If we go back to the time before the Great Flood, however, the knowledge of this Zodiac Gospel story was preserved by the Sethites - and later by Noah’s son Shem, whose descendents gradually fell into sin, and idolatry when they perverted the Star Gospel, and created the star-gazing astral religions of the Chaldean, Akkadian, Babylonian, and Assyrian civilizations in Mesopotamia.

Now, in the Christian view of these constellations, Perseus is an obvious allusion to Christ, while Andromeda is an allegory for Christ’s Bride, the True Church. Sadly, as long as she is mortal, Christ’s Bride is trapped in the flesh, and in the clutches of sin by Satan, and his demons. This can especially be seen in the figure of Cetus, and the bands that tie the two Fishes of Pisces representing the Two House Church of Judah (i.e. Messianic Jews) and Ephraim (i.e. Born-Again Gentiles) to Cetus’ neck. In addition, anyone who has read the book of Revelation knows of the white horses that the saints, and Christ will ride to victory at the end of the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 19:11-14). These white horses are depicted in the constellation Pegasus the Flying Horse, which appears above the signs of Pisces and Aquarius.

From this explanation of Perseus’ meaning, it can be seen how relevant its message is to believers awaiting the Rapture, and Christ’s Second Coming. This is why the three comets that have passed through Perseus in the last decade seem to be signs that the end is near. For example, on April 11, 1996, the Comet Hyakutake crossed over the star Al Ghoul in Perseus. Then, one year later - and on the same exact day - the amazingly brilliant Comet called Hale-Bopp crossed over the same star in the opposite direction, appearing to mark a giant “X” in the sky. Could this have been one of the celestial End Time signs that the Bible forewarns us about? (See Joel 2:30-31; Luke 21:25-26.) Could this unprecedented comet crossing possibly signify that we have reached that significant time in history?

I was first introduced to this unusual comet crossing in a book connecting Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid written by the math wizard Bonnie Gaunt. Still, later I read about it in a book called “Signs of the End,” by Daniel W. Matson. These authors alerted me to start paying much closer attention to unusual celestial events, and to pray for the correct interpretation of their divine meaning. This is why, when Comet Holmes entered the constellation Perseus in August of 2007, I was paying rapt attention, and I was not disappointed!

Amazingly, Comet Holmes proceeded to draw a big retrograde loop through Perseus, and has already passed directly by its most prominent star known as Mirfak, meaning “He Who Helps.” In addition, Mirfak has occasionally been labeled “Al Genib,” meaning “The One Who Carries Away.” Before continuing, it pays to note here that the term Al Genib alludes to a hero who undertakes a daring rescue of a friend from imminent danger - and which could be a reference to the coming Rapture. Now, the other bright star that the Comet Holmes will pass through - in early 2008 - is none other than Al Ghoul, a.k.a. Rosh Satan! Thus, it appears that Comet Holmes is gearing us all to look for the coming apocalyptic confrontation between our heavenly Helper and Rescuer, who is Christ, and our devilish adversary - the one infamously known as the Antichrist.

Now, let me add some fuel to the fire lighting this assumption by noting that - to the average astronomer - it seems highly unlikely that three bright comets would cross over the same constellation in less than a hundred years, much less the same exact star in a little over ten years! This leaves me to draw only one conclusion: based on the meaning of Perseus, and Al Ghoul, God is telling sacred astronomers like myself that the time of Perseus confronting the Medusa is very near! In other words, the time when Christ will confront the Antichrist, and the terrifying events in the Bible’s book of Revelation are about to begin!

In verification of my conclusion, there have been five Lunar Eclipses that coincided with major Jewish holidays in 1996, 1997, and 2007. In 1996, there were two total Lunar Eclipses that were ideally viewed from the Middle East, and could be clearly seen from Jerusalem, Israel. The first occurred around 12:30 a.m. on Passover, April 4th, 1996 - in the sign of Virgo, which can be seen as a symbol for Ancient Israel, as well as the virgin Bride of Christ, a.k.a. the True Church. In addition - during daylight hours on that same day - the Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Saturn were in the sign of Pisces, and Jupiter was aligned with the Pleiades - and both Pisces and the Pleiades allude to Gentile and Jewish Israel! Soon after - on April 11, 1996 - Comet Hyakutake crossed over the star Al Ghoul in the constellation Perseus.

Then, on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles - at around 4 o’clock a.m. on September 27th, 1996 - a Lunar Eclipse occurred when the Full Moon was in conjunction with the planet Saturn in the sign of Pisces. Interestingly, Pisces is allegorically connected to the fate of both Jewish and Gentile Israel, which are represented by the two fishes of Pisces. Meanwhile, the Moon signifies both the apostates in the Church, and the righteous members of Christ’s Kingdom - as seen in the dark and bright faces of the Moon. In addition, Saturn represents the Sabbath, resting from work, and the peace associated with that rest. Since a total Lunar Eclipse fully darkens the Moon, this eclipse allegorically may have been indicating that the peace that both Jewish and Gentile Israel were seeking with their Muslim neighbors at that time would not come any time soon, and that any attempt at peace would ultimately fail.

Even taken alone, the celestial signs in 1996 appeared to be heralding that significant prophetic events were occurring, or would soon occur between Gentile and Jewish Israel, and the world. Coupled with the celestial events in 1997, however, there was no question that they were indeed heralding the imminent fulfillment of End Time prophecies. For example, on Purim on March 24th, 1997 - when Comet Hale-Bopp was at its closest and brightest - there was a partial Lunar Eclipse visible over Jerusalem at around 5 o’clock a.m., in the sign of Virgo. Also during that same day, the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Venus were in the sign of Pisces. Two weeks later, Comet Hale-Bopp followed Hyakutake’s lead, and crossed over the star Al Ghoul on the same calendar day - April 11th - but a year later, and in the opposite direction.

Then, on September 16th, 1997 - at the start of the Feast of Tabernacles - another Lunar Eclipse occurred over Jerusalem. Uncannily, just as it had in 1996, the Full Moon eclipsed when it was in conjunction with the planet Saturn in Pisces! This celestial event - along with its predecessor in 1996 - was a clear sign to Israel that God was stirring up trouble for them in anticipation of the Great Tribulation. In fact, it seemed to be indicating that Jewish and Christian persecution would soon increase around the world - just as it surely has since then.
