June 25th, 2016 Update - Although the Rapture did not occur this July 18th through 20th, a short update to this article can be found at its end, which indicates that we still may have a Pentecost Rapture this year - in the very near future. Please scroll down after my closing below to read it! My original article about the July 19th, 2016 Sign in the Heavens consisting of a Grand Cross that may be a part of the multi-layered Sign of the Son of Man follows below:This Article is a Follow Up to the following Article:
Please read the older article linked to above if you haven't already, and watch the videos embedded in it after reading this new article. Basically, in that article, it was explained that an article for the Messianic Jewish Ministry newsletter called the Levitt Letter explained that both the Christians, who celebrated Pentecost on Sunday, May 14th, and the Jews, who celebrated Pentecost on Sunday, June 12th and Monday June 13th, miscalculated the date for Pentecost this year, and the real date for Pentecost is Sunday, June 19th for Jews living in Israel, and also Monday, June 20th, 2016 for the Jews of the Diaspora. To better illustrate this point, I copied a paragraph from page 2 of the June 2016 Levitt Letter, where the true date for Pentecost was calculated and made known. It follows below:
“Passover 2016 was Saturday, April 23. By God’s instructions, then, the week long Feast of Unleavened Bread began the next day, on Sunday, April 24. The Sabbath of that 7-day Feast was Saturday, April 30 (the day from which to count 50 days).The “day after the Sabbath” was May 1, the correct date for Firstfruits-Resurrection Sunday/Easter. Seven weeks plus one day from April 30 would put Pentecost/Shavuot 2016 on Sunday June 19, not on May 15 as the Church celebrated, nor on Sunday, June 12 as the rabbis decreed. This year (as in most years), the rabbis and Church BOTH got Pentecost-Shavuot wrong, illustrating their divergence from each other and from God’s instructions.” ~ Levitt letter, June 2016, Page 2Based on this new date for Pentecost, the large new graphic above is my labor of love for the Bride of Christ and the Wise Virgins that are awake, and watching for their Bridegroom's return, just as He asked them to be doing. It took me all day on June 18th to finish it and the accompanying article. This graphic emphasizes that this Sign in the Heavens on the true date for Pentecost or Shavuot that falls on Sunday June 19th, 2016 forms a very rare line-up of the Sun, the Moon, and the planets Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, Mars, and Saturn in or near the Four Cardinal Signs of the Zodiac, thus forming an impressive and relatively rare celestial sign called a Grand Cross. Please read the graphic to see how each planet and Zodiac Sign has a direct connection to Christ, His Covenants with mankind, and His First and Second Advent roles.
Utilizing the principles behind the Gospel in the Stars and Sacred Astronomy, this Grand Cross can be seen as an allusion to the Cross that is a symbol for Christ's sacrifice for sin, and a sign of His role as the Son of Man born of a woman, who came to fulfill Isaiah 53 as our Suffering Servant. For this reason, I wonder if this is the Sign of the Son of Man that Christ Himself alluded to that would appear just before He came for His redeemed saints. On June 19th, 2016, this Grand Cross will appear in the Cardinal Signs of the Mazzaroth or Zodiac that are all directly tied to Christ in His various redeeming roles as a servant of mankind throughout history.
These Cardinal Zodiac Signs are Taurus the Bull signifying Christ's shed Blood as an atoning sacrifice for our sins; Aquarius the Water-Bearer signifying the baptism with water and the Spirit of God that Christ gives to those who love and follow Him; Ophiuchus the Serpent Holder signifying Christ as the Restrainer of the Serpent, and the Crusher of Scorpio the Scorpion signifying Satan and his wicked armies; and Leo the Lion signifying Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah coming to set up His Kingdom on Earth.
If you are unfamiliar with Sacred Astronomy and the Gospel in the Stars, I highly recommend reading my free online mini book giving a detailed explanation about it after reading this article:
With Father's Day and Pentecost overlapping this June 19th, in the traditional month for Weddings, and with a Full Moon visible in Ophiuchus, the Sign signifying Yahshua or Jesus as our Sacrifice on the Cross for our sins and our Kinsmen Redeemer, it seems as though this might be our Messiah Yahshua's way of saying:
~*~ Revelation 2:7 ~*~ “to him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God”, and...
~*~ Revelation 3:10 ~*~ “Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth”...Could Yahshua be using these Heavenly Signs that may allude to the preceding scriptures as an encouragement to His Watching Bride? Could this Grand Cross coinciding with a Full Moon on Pentecost and Father's Day so near to the Summer Solstice mean that Christ is coming very soon to rescue His saints from the enemy camps they are being persecuted in right now all over the world? Will He descend on a cloud and send out His army of angels to take His Bride to a wonderful place of refuge in His loving care as our Kinsmen Redeemer in the very near future? Although I can't be absolutely certain, I find it intriguing that the last time a Full Moon virtually coincided with the Summer Solstice was in 1967, the year that Israel recaptured Jerusalem and a little over 49 years ago, and the next time they virtually coincided was in 1948, the same year that the prophetically important but tiny Democratic Nation of Israel was reborn - a little over 69 years ago. If that isn't prophetically significant, I don't know what is!
But those aren't the only prophetic tie-ins that I can see. There is a fabulous illustration of the coming Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven from the Bible that seems directly tied to this Late Spring through Early Summer Season of the year, and to the Rapture as well. Remember the Nobleman of Israel named Boaz who was a Kinsmen Redeemer for the Israelite widow Naomi, and her daughter in law Ruth? See the Book of Ruth in the Old Testament to read this love story. As their Kinsmen Redeemer, Boaz bought back the Israelite farmland that once belonged to Naomi's husband, and then he married Ruth, the impoverished Moabitess. As Boaz's wife, Ruth became the grandmother of King David! As such, Ruth is a symbol for the once Gentile, grafted-in Israelite Bride of Christ, and the Israelite nobleman Boaz symbolizes Christ as our Bridegroom and Kinsmen Redeemer.
In my opinion, this heavenly Sign of the Cross, which is made up of many symbols that are all tied to Christ and His Bride, seems almost like an invitation meant to show us that we will soon be joining Him at the Wedding of the Lamb in the Paradise we call Heaven. What I find so intriguing about it stems from the fact that Yahshua prophesied that people would be marrying and being given in marriage, planting (NOT harvesting!), and building (NOT tearing down) when He comes for His Bride and her Wise Virgin attendants, and His Sign - the Sign of the Son of Man - appears in Heaven. This Sign is described in Matthew, Chapter 24, and the parallel verses in Luke, Chapter 17 indicate what mankind will be up to when this Sign appears, and Yahshua comes for His Bride:
~*~ Matthew 24:28-31 ~*~ “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
~*~ Luke 17:26-30 ~*~ “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”Could this description of the ordinary daily activities of living given in the Gospel of Luke be an indicator of the SEASON we are in now, which is late Spring, and just before Summer begins? Since the Summer Solstice, which is on June 20th, is a sign that we are now in the season when planting, building and marrying is in full swing, could the Grand Cross this Pentecost be the final Sign of the Son of Man that Christ told us to watch for in Matthew Chapter 24?
I personally believe that the Sign of the Son of Man consists of a whole string of multiple signs that began to appear in the heavens in 2008, and also appeared in every year thereafter up until now. So this Pentecost Grand Cross featuring a full Moon in Ophiuchus could well be the final sign that was meant to appear before the Rapture. However, there are still more powerful signs coming up in 2017 that I also wrote about in previous blog posts. The posts about all the possible signs of the Son of Man that I've written about thus far are linked to below:
If you haven't read the preceding posts, I highly recommend at least taking a look at the detailed graphics included in them that show what the preceding Signs of the Son of Man may have been. Although no one knows for certain, this sign on Pentecost 2016 could be the final one in this multi-layered Sign before the Rapture, so don't lose heart, and keep looking UP, for our redemption draws nigh!
