  A Video Examining the May 26th Conjunction:

The Prophetic Meaning of the May 26th Triple Conjunction

As a Sacred Astronomer, I find it fascinating to observe the Signs in the Heavens to see what God might want to reveal to His servants here on Earth. But rarely do I get so many requests to analyze a sign as the Triple Conjunction of Planets on May 26th, 2013. On that night, the Messiah Planet Jupiter, the Morning Star Venus, and the planet Mercury will form a perfect triangle in the horns of Taurus near to the star “El Nath” shortly after sunset. In addition, a less perfect triangle will be visible on the 27th, and then on the 28th, Mercury will be directly in line with El Nath, and Jupiter and Venus will form a tight conjunction nearby.

I’ve had three sisters in Christ pointedly ask me what this triple conjunction may mean prophetically, and this alerted me to the fact that the triangle that will form in the horns of Taurus may be more important than I first assumed. This is really not surprising since Taurus represents both the patriarch Joseph, and the power and prosperity of the Gentile West, especially Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. In this regard, as shown in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”, the left horn is connected to Joseph’s son Manasseh and represents the United Kingdom, the right horn signifying Joseph’s son Ephraim represents the United States, and the body of the Bull signifies the European Union.

But when I set aside some time to look more closely at this sign this morning, I found that this triple conjunction will not only appear in the horns of Taurus, but that it will sit like a crown above the head of the messianic constellation Orion, which signifies the Risen Christ coming in power to conquer the wicked at the Battle of Armageddon. I also was surprised when I found this written in Chapter 6 on page 318 of my book “The Language of God in the Universe”:
“When Taurus appears in the 12 o'clock position in our modern sky, Scorpio is at the 6 o'clock position. Therefore, when Taurus rises, Scorpio disappears! Taurus therefore partly symbolizes the wrath of God that will destroy Satan, and his evil followers. This was made abundantly clear when the Great Flood occurred on the evening of May 27th, 2347 BC. On that night, the planet Venus signifying Christ as the bright Morning Star, and Yah’s enlightenment through the Holy Spirit was in Taurus - the celestial symbol for the terrible unleashing of Yah’s righteous wrath in judgment.”
I’d found the above gem of a paragraph when looking for the meaning of the star “El Nath” at the tip of the left horn of Taurus. Directly below that paragraph, I’d written that “El Nath” means “Wounded” or “Slain” in Arabic. That’s significant since the left horn of Taurus is connected to the Patriarch Joseph’s son Manasseh, and it suggests that the nations connected to Manasseh, or the United Kingdom will turn against God in the End Times, and these nations will need to be slain or wounded by God. What’s more, this conjunction of planets will appear when the body of Taurus the Bull has set below the horizon with only its horns still visible, meaning that head of Scorpio the Scorpion - the sign of Satan and His followers in rebellion against God - will be rising in the east!

Fascinatingly, this month’s Moon is a Super Moon, meaning the Moon is at one of its closet points to Earth as it orbits our planet, and will actually be somewhat larger in our skies due to this. Some believe that Super Moons are behind increased earthquake activity and more sever weather patterns on the Earth, though it has not been proven. In addition, there was a slight penumbral Eclipse of the Full Moon in the late evening of May 24th and early morning of May 25th in the head of Scorpio the Scorpion that may have been meant to herald the Triple Conjunction beginning May 26th as an evil omen for the wicked.

Significantly, the preceding paragraph from my book “The Language of God in the Universe” said that the planet Venus was in the horns of Taurus at the time of the Great Flood. Therefore, I found it an intriguing coincidence that the planet Venus will again be in the horns of Taurus on May 27th this year. On Page 151, in Chapter Four of the aforementioned book, I explained what Venus’ position in Taurus at the time of the Great Flood meant: 
“On the day that the Flood began, the planet Venus (the Light of Yah and the Morning Star) was in Taurus, which symbolizes God’s blessings to the Gentiles, as well as His wrath and judgment upon all humanity. This may have indicated that, through the judgment of the Flood, a blessing would come to the remaining people of Earth through the descendants of Seth and Noah. Also on that fateful day, Venus’ position in the sign signifying a charging bull suggests that the antediluvians had rejected the enlightenment that Yah shared freely through the symbolism in the stars. As a result, like a wild, angry bull, God would trample upon the unrepentant wicked. Due to Yah’s righteous wrath at the time of the Flood, all terrestrial creatures were exterminated - all except those that were housed in the Ark. 
In a significant way, this entire paragraph about the meaning of the heavenly signs at the time of the Great Flood uncannily describes what Venus in Taurus means today. As we near the time of Jacob’s Trouble that is so clearly being heralded by the Blood Moon Tetrad on Jewish Feasts in 2014 and 2015, there’s no doubt that this Triple Conjunction in Taurus is another clear sign that we are entering another time of unprecedented trouble in human history that will closely rival the Great Flood in severity and destructiveness.

The extremely bright planet Venus, which represents our Messiah as “the Bright and Morning Star” of Revelation 22:16 is a very powerful sign. But it is even more significant when coupled with Jupiter, the near-equally bright and far larger planet that signifies Yahshua as our Atonement Sacrifice and High Priest before God. Not only that, but Mercury - which signifies Enoch the Scribe of Righteousness, and also Noah in his role as the preserver and editor of Enoch’s writings - will join them in a magnificent triangular conjunction that will be visible low in the western horizon shortly after sunset on May 26th, 2013.

In an amazing way, this triune grouping of planets is suggestive of the Triune nature of God. As the Spokesperson or Word of God to mankind, Yahshua or Jesus can be equated with Mercury, the Divine Messenger; the immense Messiah planet Jupiter can be tied to God the Father; and the bright planet Venus, with its feminine associations, can be tied to the Holy Spirit. As such, this triangular conjunction in Taurus is like a beacon from the Throne of God, beckoning the faithful to draw near as troubles and tribulations on the Earth increase. Intriguingly, the star “Al Cyone” or “The Center” in the Pleiades on the back of Taurus the Bull may not only signify the Church of Philadelphia, but the literal center of the Universe, and the allegorical home of the Throne of God, where the prayers of the faithful followers of Yahshua are presented and answered.

At the same time that this Triple Conjunction is occurring in the West, the Moon will be just below the eastern horizon in the Dark Rift region in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is located in the sign of Sagittarius the Archer. This is a very significant position, as it marks the current location of the Sun on the Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day of the year. As the shortest day, the Winter Solstice can be seen as the point where darkness or evil has reached its maximum point and seems to have triumphed, though it can grow no worse. However, though the Dark Rift heightens this illusion of darkness triumphing at the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy, the truth is that this marks the point when the days are going to get longer, and light will triumph over darkness again.

Three Conjunctions in Taurus on May 28th, 2013:

With the Sun signifying the power of God in Taurus moving into alignment with the Hyades star cluster in the head of the Bull on May 28th, and the War planet Mars aligning with the Pleiades star cluster on Taurus’ back on the same date, this message of drawing near to God as troubles increase is strengthened exponentially. This is because both of these star clusters signify believers within the Church, with the Hyades suggestive of the Bride of Christ and Five Wise Virgins represented by the Church of Philadelphia, whose generally materially impoverished members have the heart and sight of God, while the Pleiades symbolically represents five of the Seven Churches in the Book of Revelation. These can be seen as the Five Foolish Virgins who will be left behind when the Rapture takes place.

Since five of the seven stars in the Pleiades are tied to the Five Foolish Virgins, it indicates that a large portion of the Church is apostate, and is in for a rough ride on the back of the raging heavenly Bull called Taurus! In fact, since Mars is the planet associated with Blood Sacrifice, its alignment with the Pleiades is a dire warning of the increasing persecution and martyrdom of believers worldwide, as well as the Great Deception that will come upon the Laodicean Church in the Last Days, and make it impossible for them to take part in the Rapture. Spiritually tepid and blind, many of those in the Laodicean Church who do not wake up immediately after the Rapture will follow the Antichrist into perdition as the Woman who rides the Beast, and the Harlot on the Scarlet Beast in the Book of Revelation, Chapters 13 and 17.

As I looked through my book “The Language of God in the Universe” further, I also noticed this section on pages 322-23 that caught my attention. It describes the meaning behind a prophecy concerning the Day of the Lord, or the Tribulation period:  
“In the following Scripture, Ephraim is paired with the Tribe of Judah as weapons that Yah wields against His enemies on the Day of the Lord:

“For I have bent Judah, My bow, Fitted the bow with Ephraim, and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and made you (Zion) like the sword of a mighty man. Then the LORD (Yahweh) will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord GOD (Adonai Yahweh) will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south.” - Zech. 9:13-14 (NKJ) 
In the preceding passage, the phrase Adonai Yahweh is used to refer to God Almighty. In my study of Scripture, any time the term Adonai is used, it is a passage referring to God’s Son, Yahshua. Furthermore, Adonai or Christ is wielding Judah and Ephraim as weapons against a nation symbolically called “Greece.””
In my books, I explain how there is a strong connection between the Tribe of Ephraim and the United States, and the Tribe of Judah with the nation of Israel on a national level. But they also have a strong spiritual connection. In that regard, Ephraim represents the mixed people and nations of the Gentiles that are saved, born again, adopted as Israelites, betrothed to Yahshua, and ready for the Rapture, while Judah signifies born-again Messianic Jews. Meanwhile, the term “Greece” can signify all the unsaved Gentiles on the Earth that have adopted the Greco-Roman culture - and this includes the entire civilized world!

This passage in Zechariah has a strong connection to “The Hidden Prophecy in Psalm 108”, which I deciphered in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy”. In an effort to share this prophecy with the world, I shared the book section containing my Prophetic Interpretation of Psalm 108 at my Pillar of Enoch Ministry Blog.

Significant Heavenly Signs on the Summer Solstice of 2013

Though most people are unaware of the allegorical importance of solar equinoxes and solstices, there is a great deal of spiritual significance to each of them. Just as the Winter Solstice represents the dawn of hope and victory in a world filled with evil, the Summer Solstice signifies its opposite. On the Summer Solstice, the daylight is at its longest point, and the darkness of night is at its shortest. As such, it signifies the momentary triumph of good over evil. By the same token, however, it also signifies the renewing of the war of evil, or darkness against good, or light.

On the Summer Solstice of June 21st, 2013, the Signs in the Heavens will tell a similar but slightly different story from those observed in May of 2013. For example, instead of having a Triple Conjunction of planets above Orion’s Head, the Sun representing God the Father, and Jupiter representing Yahshua will be over Orion’s Sword, which touches the Ecliptic near the tip of the right horn of Taurus. The Bull’s right horn is marked by the star called Zeta Tauri, which is below the star El Nath marking the left horn.

The left horn of Taurus signifies the apostate or Laodicean Church that will become the Woman who rides the Beast. The Laodiceans are lukewarm, apostate “Christians” that advocate the use of verbal intimidation, physical threats, and heavy violence to obtain a given end. Meanwhile, the Right Horn of Taurus signifies the righteous followers of Yahshua among the Gentiles who understand that Christ did not advocate violence or verbal abuse of any sort. They therefore fight evil on the Earth in a non-violent and loving fashion, and will do so until they are taken to Heaven in the Rapture.

This juncture of the Ecliptic or path of the Sun with the tip of Orion’s Sword and the tip of the right horn of Taurus indicates that it is a symbol of God’s Sword or Wrath, which is to be poured out on the wicked by Yahshua and His holy angels, but NOT His resurrected saints, who will only be there to witness the divinely executed carnage during the Battle of Armageddon (See Rev. 19:15).

With the Sun and Jupiter both occupying this powerful “war” position above Orion’s Sword, it is a herald of the approach of that great epic war between good and evil. I believe that this epic confrontation will begin - at least in its initial stages - when Israel will face great peril from her enemies. This will likely be sometime before or just after the First Passover Blood Moon of the Blood Moon Tetrad of Full Lunar Eclipses falling on Jewish Feasts. The first of these four consecutive Blood Moons will fall on Passover of 2014, and the last one will fall on the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot in 2015.

In addition to the Sun and Jupiter over Orion’s Sword, Venus and Mercury will be taking counsel together in Gemini the Twins, which signifies the warring brothers Jacob and Esau making a true Covenant of Peace through Yahshua and the Gospel of the Kingdom. While the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven is the ultimate fulfillment of this Covenant of Peace, there will be a false one set up on Earth between the modern descendants of Jacob and Esau that will not bring peace, but a sword via the Sword of Orion or Christ! This false Covenant of Peace surrounds the Two State Solution that plans to divide Israel in two. As such, it is a wicked plan that God will ultimately overthrow. As it says in Scripture:

~*~ Joel 3:1-2 ~*~
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
2 I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.”

Fascinatingly, the War planet Mars will be near to the Hyades star cluster in the face of Taurus, and in conjunction with a small short period Comet known as Wirtanen 46P. It will be visible, appearing to look like a third magnitude star below Mars, and it can clearly be seen in the Starry Night illustration for June 21st, 2013 above.

Significantly, Comet 46P was discovered in January of 1948 - the same year that Israel was re-born. Furthermore, it is associated with the Jupiter family of comets, and Jupiter is the Messiah Planet representing Yahshua as the Great High Priest and the Suffering Servant. Even more fascinating, the debris field of Comet 46P lies in the sign of Pisces the Fishes, which is a symbol of the Two Houses of Israel called Judah (Jewish believers) and Israel (Gentile believers) - though these two houses are often identified as Judah and Ephraim in prophetic Bible passages.

The conjunction of Mars with this comet therefore suggests that war will be coming to Israel in the near future. With Mars between Taurus’ horns, the planet’s association with bloodshed and blood sacrifice indicates that there will be no lasting peace between the sons of the Promise, or Messianic Jews and Christians, and the sons of disobedience, or the Palestinians and other Arab and Asian enemies of Israel. As such, like the signs in May, this sign is pointing to the nearness of the ultimate battle between the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness.

As an authenticating mark on this interpretation, the nearly Full Moon will be in the head region of Scorpio the Scorpion on the night before the Summer Solstice. As already mentioned, Scorpio signifies the wicked that follow Satan and his demons. But in this position, the Moon representing the apostate churches, and Satan’s head signifying those lost in the Occult, are under the feet of the Strong Man Ophiuchus, who signifies Yahshua as the Divine Power holding back evil in the world, and in the hearts of men.

This concludes my look into the current heavenly signs that Yahshua told us to pay attention to as the Rapture, and the Day of the Lord approach. In the near future, I hope to post an article looking at the signs surrounding the Feast of Trumpets, Sukkot, and the spectacular appearance of the Great Comet ISON shortly after the Full Hybrid Solar Eclipse of November 3rd, 2013, when the Sun, Moon and Saturn will be between Libra the Scales and the feet of Virgo the Virgin (a symbol for the Bride of Christ).

As a peek into my thoughts about these future signs, I believe they may mark the beginning of World War III and the opening of the Fifth Seal when the numbers of the martyrs for Christ will be increased, followed by the opening of the Sixth Seal Earthquake and Sudden Destruction, and the Seventh Seal Rapture of the Saints being rescued out of the middle of the Tribulation.

According to major Heavenly Signs between 2010 and 2018 that have been discussed in several previous Blog posts - including the one linked to HERE - the Tribulation may have begun with the Blood Moon over the Sword of Orion on December 21st, 2010, on the Winter Solstice. This means that the mid-point of the seven year Tribulation period will be in June of 2014, and by this time, Israel may have already partly won a major war against her enemies that will cause World War III, and the rising up of One World government of the Antichrist.

For now, all I am absolutely certain of is that we are in the End Times, and that the Tribulation already started. In fact, by my estimation, we are already experiencing the effects of the first Four Seals in the Book of Revelation, which I believe may have already been opened. After all, the Wrath of God isn’t announced until AFTER the Sixth Seal is opened, and this Seal is opened in verse 12 of Revelation, Chapter 6. This is when many awakened Watchmen like me believe that the Rapture of the Bride of Christ and her Five Wise Virgin Handmaidens should occur, especially since the Wrath of God is not officially announced until verses 16 and 17 of the same chapter:

“Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” - Revelation 6:16-17

So please keep looking UP, and keep you eyes on Yahshua! Our deliverance from this wicked world is indeed coming soon, though we may have to live through some increasingly rougher days for a short time until the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church.

**********************
CLOSING NOTE: It’s interesting how many people will read this Heavenly Sign article and assume that I am date setting, because I am NOT, with one exception. I believe that God left clear Signs in the Heavens marking the years of the Tribulation - signs that no man can alter, and that Yahshua our Messiah implicitly told us to watch for. This is why those of us who are striving to be counted worthy to be the Bride of Christ are excited and expectant to see our heavenly Bridegroom soon! In fact, many of us think that if believers aren't excited to see Christ’s coming, and don't watch for it, they may not be ready when He does come!

There are also some who like to point out that the Heavenly Signs aren’t a sure marker of God’s unfolding Will either, because anyone can read the Heavenly Signs once they train themselves to do so. In fact, ancient records like the Bible - in reference to Herod’s slaughter of the innocents, for example - prove that powerful people can, and often do, try to alter the course of history to thwart God’s plans.

But I believe that God is a Master Chess player because He knows the moves of His adversaries in advance, and has therefore put His own fail-safe counter plans in place. So, no matter what people try to do to change the course of history, they will NOT succeed. God knows the end from the beginning, and everything that will take place in between! He will therefore ensure that His Will is done in the time allotted for it to be done. Just don’t be surprised if - in the end - the actual events of history don’t fit people’s preconceived notions and interpretations of God’s prophetic Word.

God bless!
