Have a Stoplight Christmas!

To make your Christmas a bit merrier, I thought I would share the politically incorrect, and often quite funny Stoplight Video commentaries produced and hosted by Focus on the Family's Stuart Shepherd.

The one that got the most laughs from me this Christmas season is called "Merry Tossmas:"

I found it funny partly because I had already been actively engaging in this activity with the literal flood of catalogs I get between Thanksgiving and Christmas every year.

Of course, to be environmentally responsible, I have recycled all of these unwanted catalogs after tossing them in my recycle bin.

Yes, as a way of being a good steward of the Earth, I am an active recycler, though I am NOT a Global Warming activist in the sense that I think we humans have anything to do with it. As a result, another Stoplight video that I found particularly good was Stuart's questions about Global Warming that was done this past summer:

In fact, all of these edgey, and sometimes hilariously cynical videos are wonderful to watch, and good as conversation starters. I recommend them highly. A full index of all the Stoplight shows that have been produced so far can be found here:


Merry Christmas!

Was The Star Of Bethlehem Really A Star, And Was Christ Really Born In A Barn?

Overview: In this article, Bible Scholar Helena Lehman of Pillar of Enoch Ministry reveals the myths surrounding the traditional Nativity Story, what is actually said about it in the Gospels, and what is left unsaid, but carefully implied in the mysterious story of the Magi, and the magical Star of Bethlehem.


December 9, 2007: Over the years, there has been much speculation surrounding Christ’s birth, from whether it occurred in a cave, or barn, to whether it occurred in winter or autumn, and whether the Star of Bethlehem was a supernatural event, or a natural phenomena, or both.

In the traditional view, though the location of the Nativity was a humble barn in Bethlehem, there was quite an array of guests in attendance. Besides Joseph, Mary, and a few barnyard animals, the newborn Christ was gazed upon by a group of shepherds with their flocks, a caravan containing three Wise Men, their entire entourage, and a whole legion of angels - all who served as living witnesses of the most miraculous event in history. What isn’t said is that everyone in that tiny Jerusalem suburb called Bethlehem would likely have seen, heard, and joined all these personages arriving in their small town out of curiosity, if nothing else.

In fact, upon closer scrutiny of the biblical narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, a decidedly different version of the legendary events surrounding Christ’s birth emerges. Matthews’s Gospel, for example, explicitly states that Christ was a young child when the Magi found his whereabouts. Furthermore, we are told that Mary was residing in a house with Christ by this time. It therefore clearly suggests that the Wise Men arrived quite awhile after Luke’s account of Christ being laid in a manger. In addition, Matthew never gives the number of Magi present. He only tells us that this unnumbered group of dignitaries from the East worshipped Christ, and presented him with the three precious gifts. What is left unsaid, but is no doubt implied, is that these three gifts were traditionally given as tribute to newly coronated kings in Mesopotamia, and the Middle East at that time.

Over the centuries since Christ’s birth, many scholars have postulated that the Magi may have been Zoroastrians from Persia, and that the mysterious star that hovered over Bethlehem when Christ was born was a miraculous, supernatural phenomenon - and not an ordinary star. These suppositions, however, make no sense when carefully scrutinized. First of all, why would Zoroastrian dignitaries from a rival culture and religion care about the birth of a Jewish king, especially since Judea was merely a vassal kingdom under Rome’s control at that time? Furthermore, why would the Magi want to worship this king like a god, and present him with costly gifts if they had no Jewish hope in the coming of a great king and Messiah, like most Jews of that time period did?

Faced with these discrepancies, some skeptics dismiss the Nativity story as a myth. But if we strip away all the legends surrounding the biblical narratives of Christ’s birth, we can entertain more plausible assumptions about just who the Magi were, and what they were doing in Bethlehem. First of all, since virtually no one would care about the birth of a Jewish king except a Jew, or a rival to his throne, we must assume that the Magi were either Jews, or Zoroastrian converts to Judaism. Secondly, since Zoroastrian Magi were well acquainted with the mystical Astronomy of the day called Astrology, we can assume that the star they followed was a real star, and not a supernatural one.

But by far the most amazing revelation hidden in the study of the events surrounding the Nativity is what the Magi understood about the Zodiac. They would have known, for example, that the supposedly Pagan Zodiac had originally been viewed as a Bible written in the stars - whose author was God alone. Furthermore, in order to identify the time of Christ’s birth, the Magi would have had to be able to correctly interpret the special story behind each symbol of the 48 constellations in that ancient Zodiac.

Since the Holy Spirit was obviously guiding the Magi when they found Christ in Bethlehem, it would make sense that they would have understood the Zodiac through that same Spirit of God. As shown in my Language of God Book Series (at:, if the Zodiac story is viewed through Judeo-Christian eyes, the primary heroes in this ancient 48-chapter storybook are not the Greco-Roman pantheon found in Classical literature, but the Bible heroes who prefigured Christ, as well as Christ Himself in both His First and Second Advent roles!

The events surrounding the birth of Christ, the celestial signs that appeared at that time, and the amazing Gospel story behind all 48 constellations of the Zodiac are the subject of my book: “The Language of God in the Universe” (at: It is part of a four volume series about the allegorical Language of God, a hidden language that God uses to communicate with mankind that is found in nature, and all Biblical symbols. In fact, every book in this exhaustively researched, illustrated, reference library is filled with facts showing the amazing connection between the themes and prophecies in the Bible, and the Zodiac story.

For anyone with an interest in Ancient History, Comparative Religion, Bible Prophecy, Astronomy, Astrology, and the hidden meanings behind biblical symbols, there is no other reference work on the market today that even approached this set in depth of scope, or detail. And right now, for a limited time, this entire, amazing reference set can be purchased for a huge savings off the cover price of each book at my Pillar of Enoch Ministry Web site at When placing your order, keep in mind that, for guaranteed Christmas delivery, books must be ordered by December 15th, 2007.

In addition to the books, I also offer two free articles surrounding Christ’s Birth in the free Articles section of my web site at The article entitled “Where Is Christ In Christmas?” is about the spiritual meaning behind the traditional symbols of Christmas, and its connection to Chanukah, and the other article entitled “The Divine Timing Of The Celestial Signs At Christ’s Birth” deals specifically with the timing of, and meanings behind the amazing celestial events surrounding Christ’s birth.

I hope you will take some time out this holiday season to feed your soul with the many wonderful spiritual truths hidden behind the symbols surrounding Christmas, and the timing of Christ’s birth, and I invite you to purchase my books to learn even more about the wonderful spiritual secrets that God alone has hidden in every star, and constellation.

Have a Happy Chanukah, and a very Merry Christmas!

“The Amazing Heavenly Anti-Peace Sign Formed in the Zodiac by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

Part Three - “The Anti-Peace Sign Chanukiah of the Four Horseman, and the Eclipses Marking the Great Tribulation”

Copyright © 2007 By Helena Lehman

In the first two parts of this article, I showed how the four mounted Messengers of Doom called the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will allegorically form a giant Anti-Peace sign in heaven on December 21st, 2012, the Mayan Date for the End of the World. When the first four seals of judgement in the Book of Revelation are opened, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will allegorically draw this Anti-Peace Sign with the Zodiac signs of Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra, and Taurus in the sky. Since the Zodiac story hidden in these signs parallels the Bible’s account of sin and salvation through Christ, each one of these four heavenly star signs is packed with allegorical truth that reveals the nature of each apocalyptic rider’s mission.

Amazingly, that is not the only sign that will appear in heaven on the morning of December 21, 2012! What is really astounding is that the same Anti-Peace Sign will form a giant Chanukah Menorah tied to the number 9, which is associated with divine judgment in Scripture! The nine branches of this heavenly “Chanukiah” will be allegorically marked by the three decans signs under each of the three adjacent Zodiac signs forming the trident portion of the Anti-Peace Sign! These are Sagittarius’ decans (1) Lyra, (2) Ara, and (3) Draco; Scorpio’s decans (4) Ophiuchus, (5) Serpens, and (6) Hercules; and Libra’s decans (7) Crux, (8) Victima, and (9) Corona Borealis.

This Chanukiah is also depicted by the line-up of planets on December 21st, 2012, with Mars in Sagittarius marking the first lamp on this Menorah in heaven, Mercury in Scorpio marking the center lamp, which is called the Servant Lamp, and Saturn in Libra marking the ninth, and final lamp. The sign of Taurus depicting Christ crucified, and as a Risen King (via Orion), and the Messiah planet Jupiter depicting Christ’s crown are paired together to serve as this Chanukiah’s base. It therefore represents the firm foundation of Yahshua the Messiah (i.e. Jesus the Christ), who will one day return as a conquering King - like a mighty bull in His invincible power:

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ (Yahshua the Messiah).” -- 1 Corinthians 3:11

To better understand what this heavenly Chanukiah described here looks like, see my illustrations for this three-part article series online. These illustrations reveal many things that these articles do not have the length to cover adequately:

Please also see my illustration showing how a Chanukah Menorah illustrates the complete reversal of history that Yahshua will accomplish before the New Heaven and New Earth are created at the end of His Millennial Kingdom on Earth at:

While examining the illustrations, note that the Anti Peace Sign also forms a trident symbol, which is used as a weapon for fishing and war, suggesting both the winning of souls, and the destruction of souls. Tridents are also associated with the false gods Poseidon, and Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction.

Due to these amazing signs that will appear in the heavens on December 21st, 2012, it is my belief that Yahshua will end the false peace of the Antichrist very shortly after that time, and then will pour out the Wrath of God on Earth before bringing in His Millennial Kingdom of True Peace. The time when this false peace ends will be marked by signs in the heavens, including the darkening of the Sun in an eclipse, and reddening of the Moon in an eclipse (Mat. 24:29; Mark 13:24-25; Rev. 6:12).

Now, based on the prophecies in the Hallel Psalms, which I spoke of in an earlier article series, and speak of at length in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” (see, it is my belief that December 21, 2012 marks the end of the second year of the Great Tribulation. This means that the Great Tribulation will officially begin on, or around the time of the Winter Solstice in 2010 AD.

Curiously, on the evening just before the Sun rises on the Winter Solstice in 2010, there is gong to be a total Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Taurus, which signifies both God’s mercy on believers, and His terrible wrath on the Gentiles who reject Him. It also signifies Christ’s return with His saints and angels to defend the Jews and Tribulation Saints at the Battle of Armageddon!

As an eerie sign of the terrible wars, and subsequent Wrath of God to come, this Lunar Eclipse will occur directly over the tip of the constellation Orion’s upraised sword. Since Orion depicts Christ, the sword that the Lunar Eclipse occurs over is the sword of Christ! This eclipse will be visible over much of North America, which will likely be one of the most hard-hit sections of the world when the sudden disappearance of millions of believers occurs in an event known as the Rapture. The Rapture will occur on a day and hour known only to God prior to, or shortly after the onset of the Great Tribulation. At that time, true Christians all over the world will disappear off the face of the Earth, will be taken to Heaven in the twinkling of an eye, and will be given immortal spiritual bodies without having to experience death. Some time after the Rapture occurs, the unbridled Wrath of God in the unleashing of the Seal, Trumpet, and Bowl Judgments will come upon the whole world - as recorded in the Book of Revelation.

Though I suspect that the Rapture will occur before the seven-year Tribulation, and hence sometime in 2010 AD - this glorious event could occur as late as December 21st, 2012, which will likely be two years into the Great Tribulation. According to the prophetic implications shown through Sacred Astronomy, the Four Horsemen will begin their ride at the end of the first two years of peace in the seven-year Great Tribulation period. This false peace of the Antichrist’s kingdom will end when the Rider on the Red Horse - who presages war and bloodshed - begins his journey over the Earth.

After the first Four Seals are opened, and the Four Horsemen are sent by God to ride over the Earth, the next event in the Book of Revelation is the opening of the Fifth Seal:

“When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried… saying, ‘How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?’ “…and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.” -- Rev. 6:9-11 (NKJ)

This Scripture suggests that the false peace of the Tribulation period will end abruptly sometime after December 21st, 2012, and that rebellions and wars will erupt everywhere when countless Tribulation Saints will begin to be imprisoned, tortured, and killed as martyrs all over the world. These persecuted contenders for the faith will then be added to the number of saints in Heaven who already await divine justice for their martyrdom at the hands of their satanic persecutors.

Could it therefore be that the numerous heavenly signs that accompany the opening of the Sixth Seal marks not only the last three and a half year pouring out of God’s Wrath on a wicked world during the seven years of the Great Tribulation, but the beginning of the most severe persecution of the Tribulation Saints?

One thing is certain: the opening of the Sixth Seal will herald the beginning of massive Earth changes that will occur via an earthquake, or series of earthquakes that move mountains and islands out of their places. In addition, many heavenly signs, including a Solar Eclipse, Lunar Eclipse, and a massive meteor shower will accompany these earthquakes. I have identified these signs within the following quoted text:

“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair (a solar eclipse), and the moon became like blood (a lunar eclipse). And the stars of heaven fell to the earth (a massive meteor shower)… Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up (severe atmospheric changes), and every mountain and island was moved out of its place (massive Earth changes). And the kings of the earth… every slave and every free man, hid themselves… and said to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from…. the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’“ -- Rev. 6:12-17 (NKJ)

Since the Anti-Peace Sign in the sky will mark the end of the false peace of the Antichrist on December 21st, 2012, the coming of the Seven Trumpet judgments, and the subsequent outpouring of the final Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath can be determined by looking for a Solar Eclipse first, and then a Lunar Eclipse.

Ominously, both a Solar Eclipse and a Lunar Eclipse will occur in the spring of 2015 AD - in conjunction with major events on the Jewish calendar. Since the prophecy found in the Hallel Psalms suggests that the Great Tribulation will end in 2017, the eclipses in 2015 suggest that the Seven Trumpet and Seven Bowl Judgments will occur within the near 3-year period between the spring of 2015, and the end of 2017.

To better understand this section, please use the following link to see the PDF file containing the illustrations of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses in the spring of 2015:

On March 20th, 2015, the Solar Eclipse will occur in the sign of Pisces - exactly one day before the Spring, or Vernal Equinox that year. Uncannily, the first day of the first month of the Jewish religious calendar - a.k.a. the Jewish First of the Year - will also occur on the Spring Equinox on March 21st. At sunrise on the 21st, the waxing Crescent Moon will appear in the sign of Pisces. In the Gospel in the Stars, the two fishes of Pisces represent the Two-House Church of Judah and Ephraim, consisting of Messianic Jews and saved Lost Israelites and Gentiles. Now, a heavenly band, or cord binds these Piscean fishes to the evil sea monster constellation called Cetus, which is under the sign of Aries. This likely represents the fact that many saved Jews and Christians have been, and will again be martyred for their faith - especially during the Great Tribulation.

Fourteen days after the New Moon on the Spring Equinox, on the evening of April 4th, 2015, it will be Passover. Intriguingly, a Lunar Eclipse will occur in the sign of Virgo on that night that will be best viewed on Easter Island. This is significant because Easter Island was discovered on Easter Sunday, April 5th, 1722, and Easter will be on Sunday, April 5th in 2015 - on the morning after the Passover Lunar Eclipse! Virgo represents the ancient kingdom, and modern nation of Israel, and both serve as forerunners to the coming Millennial Kingdom of Yahshua.

Could this be why Easter Island is covered with many enigmatic ancient stone statues - many with emaciated human torsos suggesting starvation and sickness? Could this be why their stone faces appear to be staring out in dismay at the far horizon in every direction? Could our righteous Sethite ancestors who knew Sacred Astronomy, and the holy Watchers who guided them have been trying to tell us something about the terrifying earthly and heavenly events that will occur beginning in 2015 AD by making Easter Island a modern archeological marvel, and mystery? If the Sethites knew of the First and Second Advent of Christ from the Gospel in the Stars, could Easter Island’s hundreds of stone statues have been carved to portray the global state of mankind during the last few years before Christ’s Second Coming, which may occur in 2017?

Though archeologists insist that the Easter Island stone heads were carved from solidified lava ash long after the time of Christ, some believe them to be much older. In particular, one wall carved at Ahu Vinapu on Easter Island greatly resembles ancient Pre-Flood structures made of finely fitted monolithic stone blocks that have been found around the world in places like Machu Picchu in South America, Teotihuacán in Mexico, Baalbek in Lebanon, and Giza in Egypt.

As shown in my book: “The Language of God in History,” (see it is my belief that these disparate sites are all connected - via Sacred Astronomy - by the righteous genius of one Sethite man who lived before the Great Flood named Enoch, and his descendents Noah and Shem. Furthermore, it is my contention that these men wanted to leave a testimony that communicated what they believed, and knew would happen in the far future. As a result, they carved it all in stone for this final generation - the generation that will experience the terrifying events heralding the end of this old world system, and the ushering in of a true New Age of Righteousness built on the foundation of Christ, the Bible, and the Star Gospel.

Whatever these heavenly signs portend, the conjunction of these eclipses with major Jewish calendar events in 2015 seems highly significant when viewed through the lenses of biblically-based Sacred Astronomy. As shown in my book: “The Language of God in Humanity” (see, a Lunar Eclipses occurred both on the night of the first Passover in Egypt, and on the night of the Passover when Christ was crucified! Could it be that this night of a Passover Lunar Eclipse in 2015 will also mark another significant turn of events for the Jews, and Tribulation Saints?

After the Easter Island Lunar Eclipse in 2015, the next significant eclipse will be a Solar Eclipse on August 21st, 2017. From an aerial perspective, this Solar Eclipse will cast the Moon’s shadow over all of North America, possibly indicating that something prophetically significant will occur on behalf of this region of the world sometime around that date in history. Could this be close to the time when Christ will return with His heavenly armies to defeat the armies of the Antichrist that will be invading the USA and Israel? See my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” (see to see what Bible prophecies have to say about the United States and Israel before, during, and after the Great Tribulation.

“The Amazing Heavenly Anti-Peace Sign Formed in the Zodiac by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

Part Two - “The Riders on the Red, Black, and Pale Horses,
The Anti-Peace Sign, and the Mayan World-End Date”

Copyright © 2007 By Helena Lehman

In Part One of this article, entitled: “The Rider on the White Horse: Symbol of the Gospel of the Kingdom Being Preached,” it was shown how the Rider on the White Horse in the Book of Revelation is depicted - via Sacred Sethite Astronomy - in the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius. In addition, it was shown that this rider prophetically depicts the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the whole world during the pouring out of God’s Wrath. This preaching will be carried out via the 144,000 Witnesses (Rev. 7:2-4), followed by the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:3), and an angel (Rev. 14:6-7).

Now, using the Language of God, let’s study the meaning of the Rider on the Red Horse, who is revealed after the Second Seal of judgement is opened:

“When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.” -- Rev. 6:3-4 (NKJ)

Note that this rider carries a great sword, and rides a fiery red horse. As shown in my books: “The Language of God in the Universe,” and “The Language of God in Humanity” (see, the greatest sword in the Zodiac is being wielded by the messianic figure of Orion, a decan of the fiery Red Bull called Taurus. In addition, two of the most prominent fiery red stars in the heavens are found within Orion and Taurus. This suggests that these constellations may depict the Rider (Orion) on the Red Horse (Taurus).

One of those two red stars is often thought of as the eye of Taurus. This bright orange-red star is called “Al Debaran,“ meaning “The Leader,” and it signifies Christ as the spiritual leader of the congregation of righteous followers signified by the Hyades star cluster forming Taurus’ face. As shown in my book “The Language of God in History” (see, the Red Pyramid at Dahshur in Egypt depicts the red star known as “El Debaran,” and both the star, and the pyramid are symbols for Christ. Likewise, just as the Sethites intended, the Great Pyramid at Giza is tied to the belt star of Orion known as “Al Nitak,” or “the Wounded One.” That Wounded One was Christ on the Cross, meaning that Orion, and the Great Pyramid represent Christ as both an atonement sacrifice, and a conquering Prince.

The second reddish-hued star in the Taurus region is found marking the right shoulder of Orion, a decan of Taurus, and a powerful Christ figure in the Zodiac. This star is called “Betelgeuse,” which means “The Branch Coming.” It is one of the most massive stars in the visible Universe, with a diameter that is 600 times that of our Sun! As such, it seems fitting that Betelgeuse, and Orion as a whole actually represents Yahshua the Messiah (i.e. Jesus the Christ), the Righteous Branch that came through the righteous line of Seth, and down through Shem, Abraham, Jacob, and Judah.

Oddly, Orion and Taurus have two diametrically different sides that are hinted at in the two horns of Taurus, which also represent the horns of two unicorns, one turned red in rebellion, the other one turned white in perfection. On the one hand, Orion signifies Christ as an atonement sacrifice, which is also depicted by Taurus the Bull in its guise as the white unicorn. As such, it signifies the 2,000-year Church Age sanctified by Christ’s shed blood, and is a symbol of God’s blessing and mercy upon the Gentiles through Christ.

In its End Time application, however, Orion signifies Christ as a great Prince conquering the red, raging unicorn side of Taurus. In this guise, Taurus becomes an uncanny metaphor for the evil Beast from the Sea in the Book of Revelation. Likewise, the Pleiades star cluster on Taurus’ back, which depicts the Seven Churches of the Church Age, will switch to depict the Whore of Babylon riding the Beast! This red beast, or dragon is a symbol of the Antichrist’s unholy armies.

After this fiery Rider on the Red Horse, the Third Seal is opened, and a dreadful Rider on a Black Horse with a pair of scales in his hand appears:

“When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.’” -- Rev. 6:5-6 (NKJ)

In the Zodiac, only one of the twelve major signs can correspond to the pair of scales in this dark rider’s hands, and that is Libra, the Scales. In the Zodiac, the imbalanced scales of Libra represent the fact that all people will be judged against the perfection of Christ. Those who are not covered with His blood will be seen as inferior to Him, and will be cast out of heaven forever, while those who wear Christ’s blood as a cloak of righteousness will pass the test, and be allowed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Interestingly, this rider’s horse is black - the color most often associated with evil. Black, however, is also a color associated with grave illness, and imminent death. Furthermore, the remainder of the Scripture indicates that the Rider on the Black Horse has to do with the buying and selling of food. Since much sickness and death is caused by malnutrition, the black horse implies that much evil will come from the rationing and exorbitant pricing of food supplies, and the great restrictions that will be placed on buying and selling it by the one-world government of the Antichrist.

Finally, we come to the prophetic Zodiac imagery associated with the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse - the Rider on the Pale Horse who appears at the opening of the Fourth Seal:

“When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” -- Rev. 6:12-17 (NKJ)

Among the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac, there is one sign that has more malevolence than any of the others. This is Scorpio, which symbolizes Satan, and all the bad seeds among humanity that he fathered in his rebellion. Satan, through his sinful rebellion, brought death and destruction to Adam and Eve by beguiling them to reject Yahshua’s perfect counsel. Consequently, Satan’s evil has spread, and now all Creation is tainted with sin and death through the rebellion of the fallen angels, and all mankind.

If it were not for Christ, none of us would be saved, and we would only have one bleak prospect - to spend eternity in torment surrounded by evil spirits that hate us. Thank Yahweh for His Son Yahshua, who has provided a way for us to inherit eternal life with Him in perfect peace and joy - forever!

The satanic sign of Scorpio has decans called Ophiuchus and Serpens, which depict a strong man (Ophiuchus, or Christ) wrestling with a huge serpent (Serpens, or Satan) representing evil and rebellion. Thus, Ophiuchus depicts the rider, while Scorpio and Serpens depict the pale horse of death and sickness.

Interestingly, serpents and scorpions are mentioned in relation to the fifth and sixth trumpet plagues in the Book of Revelation. When the Fifth Trumpet is sounded: “locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.” “They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months” (Rev. 9:3, 10).

Then, at the Sixth Trumpet, 200 million strange, horse-like creatures cross the Euphrates out of Asia in order to kill a third of mankind with fire, smoke and brimstone, which comes out of their mouths, and their serpent-like tails (Rev. 9:18-19). Here then, during the middle of the Great Tribulation, we see the realization of the symbolism depicted by the Rider on the Pale Horse (Ophiuchus), Scorpio, and its serpent decan. Whether these 200 million creatures are analogies for soldiers in armored vehicles, or some form of mutant locust, their sting will likely be felt around the world.

Thus far, in examining the Zodiac connection of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it has been shown how Sagittarius represents the Rider on the White Horse, while Taurus signifies the Rider on the Red Horse, Libra signifies the Rider on the Black Horse, and Scorpio represents the Rider on the Pale Horse.

Uncannily, while plotting the four Zodiac signs tied to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on the Zodiacal Wheel, I noted that these horsemen form an astonishing Peace Symbol in the sky! You see, Sagittarius and Libra flank either side of Scorpio, while Taurus is directly opposite of Scorpio on the Zodiacal Wheel. In my illustration of the Zodiacal wheel, and the lines marking the positions of these four Zodiac signs, I was amazed to see that they form the familiar outline of a Peace Sign. Even more uncannily, this symbol was first used as a Peace Sign during the Anti-War Movements of the 1960’s, and thereby signifies the current desire for world peace that will culminate in the unholy reign, and false peace of the Antichrist.

The really troubling thing about this Peace Symbol is that the four signs it is formed by do not mark the coming of eternal world peace, as so many have hoped for, but the tragic end to the temporary peace that the Antichrist will bring in with his one world government, and false peace-treaty with Israel. I therefore have dubbed this heavenly symbol as “the Anti-Peace Sign” associated with the coming of the Antichrist.

To better understand what this heavenly Peace Symbol looks like, see my illustrations for this three-part article series online. These illustrations reveal many things that these articles do not have the length to cover adequately:

As shown in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy,” (see Scorpio will be just above the horizon, and Sagittarius will be just below the horizon on the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012, the Mayan date for the End of the World. At that time, the Sun and the Earth will align with the galactic center of the Milky Way, unleashing a whole series of End Time events.

At sunrise, the planet Saturn will hover between Libra and Virgo, marking one downward-slanting arm of that giant heavenly Anti-Peace Sign, the planet Mars will mark the opposite arm of the Anti-Peace Sign between Sagittarius and Capricorn, and the planet Mercury will mark one end of the center line of the Anti-Peace Sign.

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the world - and the Zodiac - the solitary side of the center line of this Anti-Peace Sign will be marked in the sky by the Messiah planet Jupiter, which will be dead-center in Taurus, and hovering over the Hyades star cluster marking the Tribulation Saints who will be won for Christ by the preaching of the 144,000 Witnesses of Israel (Rev. 7:2-4), the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11:3), and a mighty angel (Rev. 14:6-7).

If we were to draw this Zodiac Peace Sign in its proper orientation on paper, Taurus would be at the top of the picture, while Scorpio and its neighboring signs Libra and Sagittarius would on the bottom. This shows that Christ, who is represented by the planet Jupiter, will ride the white horse, or unicorn represented by one horn of Taurus. Meanwhile, in direct opposition to Christ, Mercury in Scorpio will represent Satan riding the other unicorn horn of Taurus into a battle that he thankfully cannot win.

Remaining Steadfast In Persecution

Though I may keep getting attacked for my stance about God's judgment on California, God has called me to remain steadfast in saying that the people of California were, and are being judged, whether or not we choose to call it that.

I have good friends who still live in San Diego who wish they didn't, and are thinking of moving as soon as possible. Why? Because, like me, they are fairly certain that God is judging southern California, and that it is probably going to get worse. In fact, I did live in San Diego myself from 2000 to 2003. But God called me out of California because, by the Spirit's own Word to me in prayer, God wanted to spare me from experiencing the suffering and devastation that has, and will continue to occur in California, and all across America as we get closer to the time of the Great Tribulation.

Does that mean that God is not judging everybody else in America? No. If nothing else, the SEVERE droughts and floods all across America over the past few years ought to dispel that notion.

God is simply focusing His wrath on California at the moment, but soon it could be another part of America that is hit, and more Christians will be caught in elevated levels of suffering because they were not earnestly asking God for protection, did not move when they were prompted to, or were not doing God's will in their lives in some other respect.

Do Christians Experience Divine Judgment?

Copyright © 2007 By Helena Lehman

My recent articles describing the California wildfires of 2007, and Global Warming as an act of judgment by God have raised the hackles of many of my fellow Christians considerably. In response to my opinions, they have accused me of being unfeeling, unloving, uncompassionate, and a host of other unflattering behaviors. However, not one of them has made the effort to search the Scriptures to find out whether or not what I have said is true. I have therefore taken it upon myself to carefully explain why I feel the way I do, based on the clear teaching of Scripture.

First of all, let me state that I know many good Christians who love God, pray often, do good works in keeping with the Spirit, and go to church regularly who have suffered from times of financial hardship, sickness, and loss - myself among them. In many cases, hard times are not acts of judgment so much as they are God acting as a character-builder in the lives of His beloved disciples. As Paul attests, hard circumstances are often God’s way of meting out discipline, and helping us to grow to be like Christ:

Hebrews 12:5-11 - “And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.’ Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

Here the writer of Hebrews tells us that, because Christ loves us, His Spirit orchestrates our circumstances to help us learn to conform to His Will. Sadly, some of us take longer to learn the lessons God is trying to teach us than others, thereby staying in hard circumstances longer. These tough times become more bearable, however, and often end when we realize that we are being chastised because of God’s love for us. Then, if we accept the discipline, and joyfully make the needed changes in our lives, God will work to bring us out of the troubles we are in.

Nonetheless, there are times when Christians are called to suffer far more than most do when chastised or disciplined by God, especially in the area of sickness and property loss. In these cases, it is up to people to judge for themselves, and find out where they stand with God in every difficult circumstance:

1 Corinthians 11:28-32 - “But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

Since, in the act of Communion, we symbolically become the Body of Christ, the preceding Scriptural passage implies that all sickness and weakness can be attributed to not treating our own bodies as if it were Christ’s body, and giving it the prayer, and care it needs to thrive. I can attest to this in my own life. I often push myself beyond my own limits of endurance, and eat the wrong types of foods, thereby reaping bad health.

To be healthy without miraculous intervention, we need to take care of ourselves as if we were taking care of our Savior’s property, which we are! All believers were bought and saved by Christ by His Death, and by His blood, and are indwelled by Christ’s Spirit to show His ownership over them (1 Cor. 6:19-20, 7:23; 2 Cor. 1:21-22, 5:5; Ephes. 1:13-14). Like many people, I have a hard time accepting Christ’s ownership, and taking care of His property (especially because I have a husband who thinks it is a sin to pamper oneself), and have been asking Christ to help me with it. But it is not easy! I have so much to do, and so little time to do it all in! As a result, it is a constant struggle to balance work with relaxation, rest, exercise, and nutrition.

In short, Christians can and do suffer more when they don’t do God’s Will, or they have family members without compassion.

To make matters worse, there are also many people who call themselves Christians, but who do not live a godly life. I know many who profess to be Christian, but never read the Bible, only pray by rote, have never memorized, or tried to live by the Ten Commandments, and only worship God when it is convenient for them, if ever. These people can, and often do suffer bad circumstances because God is trying to wake them out of their sinful stupor, and change their hearts. Sometimes, however, they have become so apostate that they have fallen out of grace, and thereby can suffer the same fate as the heathens around them.

Remember the story of Lot, Abraham’s nephew? Abraham asked God if He would spare Sodom if only 10 righteous people could be found there (Genesis 18:32). God agreed that He would, but not even 10 could be found! Therefore, if Lot and his family had not left Sodom at the prompting of God’s angels, they would have been destroyed in the consuming heavenly fire and brimstone that fell on the city (Gen. 19:23-25). There simply were not enough good people in the neighborhood for God to withhold His wrath and judgment any longer.

This brings us to another reason why godly people sometimes suffer along with their unrighteous neighbors. Many Christians are not listening to the Spirit’s promptings within them to change various sinful aspects of their lives, whether it is their spending habits, sexual behavior, or choice of neighborhoods. As a result, they can, and often do suffer from financial, bodily, or property loss. God is not a cornucopia of prosperity! He only rewards us commensurate with our works, and in keeping with His Will.

Contrary to popular Christian belief, self-directed good works are not God’s Will! He desires for those under His Grace through Christ to submit to His Spirit, and follow His Spirit’s promptings. This means asking God before we do anything, and making sure that where we are, and what we do is in God’s Will at all times. When we do this, we who are under God’s Grace will be greatly blessed:

James 2:20-26 - “But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God. You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

The Scripture above by James has received much abuse from legalists and Judaizers over the years, so it is easily ignored. However, if all Scripture is good for correction and instruction, James’ statements about doing good works must be taken into consideration when discussing the concept of Grace. If we listen to God’s Spirit, and act as we are guided to in love, then we will always do good works that God approves of. There are many times when Christians have chosen to disobey the Holy Spirit’s promptings, or felt unable to fulfill the Spirit’s requests, and therefore paid the consequences. These requests can include: being asked to only marry someone approved by God, witnessing to one’s neighbors or friends, and buying new properties or businesses only with God’s approval.

Many well-meaning Christians have suffered or died needlessly simply because they did not listen to God’s Spirit, and so were in the wrong place at the wrong time. These include the Christian people who died or suffered from the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, in the Indonesian Tsunami and flooding of New Orleans in 2005, in the severe droughts and floods of 2006 and 2007, in the many diverse wars and terrorist acts continually going on, or - most recently - in the California wild fires of 2007.

The final reason why Christians can suffer more than they should is when they do not understand the power they have been given though Christ’s indwelling Spirit. Scripture tells us that all true believers should be capable of working miracles, such as casting out demons. If any of us have cast out demons with Christ’s authority (as I have), or healed the sick with a laying on of hands, it is a sign from God that our faith in Christ is genuine. The following Scriptures explain why we can and should continually exercise Christ’s authority, and do miraculous works in keeping with His Will:

Matthew 28:18-20 - “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ “

Mark 16:17-18 - “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

I can personally attest to the fact that, when I am not exercising Christ’s authority in my life, such as in casting sickness out of my body, I can be demonically oppressed, or become severely ill. But the minute I ask for forgiveness for not acting in faith, and then do act decisively in prayer and petition to Yahshua to heal me, or change my circumstances, He will act on my behalf, sometimes immediately - as in the case of sickness! My fervent prayers for relief have been answered as a direct result of Yahshua’s intervention, and I have been miraculously healed, or delivered from financial ruin on more than one occasion. But these sorts of deliverances can only happen when we wake up out of our spiritual stupors. Sleepy or apostate Christians are therefore open to suffering and judgement.

In conclusion, there are many good reasons why law-abiding people who are considered good by the world’s standards are being judged in the world today. They are either sleepy or apostate, and suffering the consequences of their ungodly actions, or inability to change, and refusal to follow the Spirit’s lead. Yes, godly people sometimes do suffer unjustly. Believers often are called to suffer persecution, or to become martyrs for their faith. But when not faced with unjust persecution, if believers continually judged themselves, and immediately acted to change as God willed in their lives, they would be spared many calamities.

Fire Storm in California, An Act of God’s Divine Judgment?

By Helena Lehman

Under a new bill signed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Mom and Dad" and "husband and wife" were officially banned from being used in California school sex education classes. With a stroke of his pen, the Governor told many California parents that their values do not matter, and they, and their children must be gender-neutral. Additionally, in public schools girls and boys can now use each other's restrooms. Therefore, in California, no distinction is being made between men and women, as if all the old biblical taboos and boundaries God put in place can be swept under the rug for an ungodly bid at freedom, and open rebellion against God, who “made them male and female.”

Folks, I don’t know about you, but doesn’t it seem patently obvious that these fires raging out of control in California grew worse than they have ever been in California’s history shortly after this bill was signed? Could it be that Yahweh God was judging the people of California who welcomed, and applauded this new bill that obviously was passed to please the huge Gay community in California, which has the largest openly, and repugnantly vocal Gay community in the world, and whose dollars help fund the multi-billion dollar pornographic film industry in Hollywood?

While I see the clear signs of Yahweh’s disgust, and open judgement in these raging fires, the rest of the world has been completely dumb about it. Instead, the media focused on how well the government responded to the disaster, and readily assisted the people who had to evacuate their homes. How nice that the government speedily came to the aid of all the computer magnates, gays, entertainment moguls, and people who work for them that live there! One wonders if the same courtesy would be shown in a poorer part of America, like the slums in Chicago.

I doubt it.

The Bible teaches that God's judgement rests on anyone who is not doing His Will, including backslidden believers. The Bible also says that no one is good except God, and the heart of man is desperately wicked. In fact, the only way to get to heaven is through Yahshua Ha Mashiach (i.e. Jesus the Christ). But even saved people have to do good works in keeping with the promptings of the Holy Spirit inside them, or they will suffer the consequences.

Since many of the Christians of California were not publicly complaining against the unjust bill that Gov. Schwarzenegger passed, or - for that matter - trying to stop it’s being passed, then THEY WERE NOT DOING GOD’S WILL!!!!!!

In the TV news coverage of the California Fires, I remember seeing that one house in a neighborhood that otherwise was totally burned was not touched by the flames. The people whose house was saved loudly proclaimed that it was a miracle, implying that they knew God had saved their home. At the moment I saw their faces, I heard the Holy Spirit affirming that these people’s home was spared because they did God’s Will whenever they could.

On the same note: this summer, a tornado passed within two blocks of our home. Though our neighbor's home suffered much damage from the high winds, ours was not touched.

Our neighbors are involved in the Mafia, often have loud parties with much drinking and swearing, and have treated us with open contempt and hostility. Meanwhile we are doing our best to live God's way, and pray for His protection almost daily.

Why do you think our house was spared, and not our neighbors?

Something to think about!

God’s Word is faithful and true, and God will not be mocked. We all need to live our lives in accordance with God’s Word, or pay the price by losing much in this life.

Being saved is not the same thing as being blessed. You can be saved without being blessed when you do not do God’s Will. And you can never be blessed unless you do God’s Will.

How it saddens me that this once great country has sunk so morally low!
“The Amazing Heavenly Anti-Peace Sign Formed in the Zodiac by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

Part One - “The Rider on the White Horse:
Symbol of the Gospel of the Kingdom Being Preached”

Copyright © 2007 By Helena Lehman

NOTE: To better understand this material, see my illustrations for this three-part article series by downloading this 4 page PDF article supplement:

Many Bible Prophecy teachers have written about the possible meanings of the cryptic symbolism found in the Book of Revelation. Among these commentaries, much has been written about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse found in Revelation’s sixth chapter. However, none of the more popular commentaries on the Book of Revelation have noted that there is a definite Zodiac connection for many of the symbols in the prophetic language of this book.

As shown in my Language of God Book Series (see, these scriptural tie-ins to the Zodiac Star Gospel story are found throughout the many biblical prophetic scriptures, but they are especially numerous in the Book of Revelation. This suggests that we can apply Sacred Astronomy to determine the dating of key biblical prophecies, just as Enoch and his righteous Sethite descendents did prior to the Great Flood, as shown in the Pillar of Enoch, or Great Pyramid.

One aspect of this Zodiac symbolism that I mentioned in my books is found in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse who appear consecutively when the first four of seven seals representing various stages of judgment are opened. The only one of the four horsemen I really commented on in my books was the first horseman riding on a white horse, which many Bible Scholars have incorrectly identified as the Antichrist. They have done so because of the apparent similarity to the King of kings on the white horse described toward the end of the Book of Revelation:

“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war…” “Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations… He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” -- Rev 19:11, 15-16 (NKJ)

To many Bible Prophecy teachers, it is obvious that the Rider on the White Horse in Revelation Chapter 19 is none other than Yahshua (Jesus) the Messiah returning in Glory to set up His Kingdom on Earth. They therefore think that the less sensationally described rider on the white horse in Revelation, Chapter Six must be an imposter, especially since he appears at the beginning of the Great Tribulation period, when the First Seal is opened:

“Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, ‘Come and see.’ And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” -- Rev. 6:1-2 (NKJ)

Note that the First Horseman of the Apocalypse, or rider on the white horse is given a crown, and has a bow in his hand, identifying him is an archer. However, his bow has no “arrow,” which is a symbol of war and power. The lack of an arrow therefore suggests that the rider is being sent out during the first half of the seven-year Tribulation. For the first three and a half years, before the Bowls of God’s Wrath are poured out on the Earth, there will be a period of peace all over the world, though this time of peace will be heavily marred by ecological and geological disasters, which will be none other than acts of God’s vengeance on an imperiled Earth.

Uncannily, the white horse, and the crowned archer with the bow can all be found in the starry constellation called Sagittarius, the Centaur-like Archer among the twelve major signs of the Zodiac. As depicted in the Dendera Zodiac, Sagittarius depicts a mounted pharaoh, or king, whose pure white horse’s feet are trampling over a serpent shaped like a boat (indicating the serpent trail of Dan, and the Nephilim), while the arrow in the king’s bow is aimed at the heart of Scorpio, the most Satanic symbol among the twelve signs of the Zodiac! This Archer King represents Yahshua, while the white horse represents His perfection, and His role as an atonement sacrifice for sin.

As shown in my book “The Language of God in the Universe” (see, Sagittarius can be seen as a melding together of that first apocalyptic rider, and the white horse he is riding. In the Gospel in the Stars, this sign perfectly represents the dual-nature of Christ as both a conquering hero (the archer), and an atonement sacrifice (the hoofed, white animal) in one!

There are, in fact, two centaurs in the Zodiac. Sagittarius depicts Christ coming in triumph, while the decan of Virgo called Centaurus portrays Christ as an atonement sacrifice. These two centaurs are Scorpio’s righteous adversaries, and their bows depict God’s meting out of judgment against Satan, and his evil followers. However, these archer’s bows also signify God’s promises, blessings, and mercy, just as the rainbow sign given to Noah, and his kin depicted God’s promise to never destroy the Earth by water again. Interestingly, every rainbow symbolically aims an invisible arrow at God, showing that God would rather kill Himself than renege on any of His promises, just as He did on the Cross!

Now, as shown in my book “The Language of God in Prophecy” (see the prophet Zechariah depicts Yahweh holding a bow associated with the tribe of Judah, and an arrow tied to the Tribe of Joseph/Ephraim that are being used to defeat God’s enemies during the Battle of Armageddon:

“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 like the sword of a mighty man. Then the LORD will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord GOD will blow the trumpet, and go with whirlwinds from the south. The LORD of hosts will defend them… in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land…” - Zechariah 9:13-16 (NKJ)

Note here that the bow and arrow in Zechariah’s vision are being wielded by God, and those He is defending “shall be like the jewels of a crown.” This Scripture therefore identifies the bow, and the jewels of the crown belonging to the Rider on the White Horse in the Book of Revelation! As shown in my books, Judah prophetically refers to the Jews, especially those in the nation of Israel, while Ephraim signifies the Christians living all over the world, especially those in the United States. Therefore, the Rider on the White Horse appears to be a symbol representing a messenger ensuring that the Gospel of Christ’s Kingdom will be preached to the whole world before the Battle of Armageddon. This heavenly Kingdom will ultimately conquer the Devil’s kingdom in the air, and advance the knowledge of the Kingdom of God within those who become the Tribulation Saints.

Indeed, from the very beginning of the seven-year Great Tribulation, God chooses 144,000 Israelites from the Twelve Tribes of Israel to preach. Then the miracle-working Two Witnesses, and finally a mighty angel will preach the Gospel to the whole world before the fall of the Antichrist’s kingdom known as Babylon the Great:

“Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice… ‘Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.’ And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel…” -- Rev. 7:2-4 (NKJ)

“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” -- Rev. 11:3

“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth -- to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people -- saying with a loud voice, ‘Hear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’” -- Rev 14:6-7

In the final preceding quote, note that this angel is preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom to the whole world, not just a few people! This angel, and the 144,002 other witnesses of God who will preach during the Tribulation will thus fulfill Christ’s prophecy that:

“…this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” -- Matt. 24:14

This preaching will be faithfully carried out because Yahweh does not want even one of His human children to perish in the Lake if Fire. Therefore, Yah is, and will continue to be merciful to those who accept His Son Yahshua as Savior - even up to the end of the Battle of Armageddon! Hallelu-Yah for that!

In Part Two of this article series, I will show what Zodiac signs the other three Horsemen of the Apocalypse are connected to, and what this connection means.

Global Warming: A Consequence Of Apostasy In The USA, and The World

Copyright 2007 By Helena Lehman

October 18, 2007 - This article is a continuation of my article “The Amazing Star Gospel Connection of the USA and Israel, and the Zodiac in Bible Prophecy,” which was posted at this site recently. Before reading this article, it would be helpful if you read that article for more background on the points I will be addressing in this article, which is excerpted from my book:
“The Language of God in Prophecy”.

Now, if - as shown in my previous article - the United States is supposed to be a spiritual light to all other modern nations, it follows that the failure of the United States to give that spiritual light will cause the entire nation to suffer Yah’s (i.e. God’s) Wrath and Judgment. Though the United States still likely has more Christians per capita than any other nation on Earth, the government of the United States is becoming corrupt, and many apostate American politicians and judges are openly, and frequently attacking the premises upon which this great nation was founded.

Besides the democratic freedoms given to its citizens including the freedom of religion, the people of the United States swore to be “One Nation Under God” - whose national and spiritual motto is “In God We Trust.” The increasing failure of the people of the United States to honor these creeds, and to be a godly spiritual light in this dark world in recent times, has led to great misfortune for the United States. Clear signs that the U.S. Government, and many American citizens, are treading upon dangerous ground due to their immorality can be seen in many aspects of American society today, especially in the:

-- Media promotion that homosexuality is acceptable, and should not only be tolerated, but embraced as an acceptable lifestyle

-- Murder, rebellion, violence, sexual promiscuity, and pornography seen as entertainment rather than sin

-- Increasing usage of mind-altering, health-damaging recreational and prescription drugs

-- Legalization of abortion and euthanasia

-- Rapid escalation of violent crimes, murders, and all kinds of theft, including electronic and identity theft

-- Active promotion of Evolutionary Theory, which relegates the account of Creation in Genesis into the realm of myth

-- Increasingly open hostility toward Christian morality and values in our schools, and in the media

-- Deterioration of our legal system, which no longer supports biblical moral law, but promotes “tolerance” of sin

These immoral activities are a great affront to Yahweh, yet many Christian Americans condone these sins by their indifference, or refusal to show their outrage. Can any true believers in Yah doubt that America’s major national falling away from the truth in the past thirty years has reaped, and will continue to reap dire spiritual consequences for American citizens? After 9-11, how can anyone doubt that the moral degeneration of the United States, and the entire world has inevitably led to Yah’s judgment and wrath against many nations?

Indeed, though Europe had already fallen into many of the sins now becoming rampant in America (i.e. sexual immorality, promiscuity, political corruption, and apostasy) God did not begin to pour out His wrath on Europe immediately. Instead, Yah waited until increasing numbers of Americans followed Europe’s lead, and began to fall deeply into sin.

Currently, the world’s crazy weather patterns are one of the most obvious signs that we are in the End Times. In fact, so-called “natural disasters” are increasing exponentially all over the world. In 2003 and 2004 alone, statistics show that there has been a massive increase not only in the number, but also in the destructive power of storms, floods, and other natural disasters all over the world. For example, in 2004, many regions in the United States suffered from tremendous amounts of flooding from the unnaturally heavy rains that began in early spring that year, and continued throughout the summer. Even ordinarily dry States such as California and Nevada suffered from severe, and devastating flash floods, and mud slides. Later in 2004, and before more heavy rains came, there was unusual damage in California from severe brush fires. Though common to the ecology of the Southwest, these brush fires were burning increasingly way out of control.

Then, in 2005, the entire USA went from one extreme to another. Instead of too much rain in most regions (except Florida and the Eastern seaboard), many States suffered from severe drought, and heat. For example, due to drought, brush fires in the Western regions of the USA burned over vast areas in Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado for an unnaturally long period of time. Besides drought, daytime temperatures were extremely high. On July 24th, 2005, for example, the Weather Channel showed a map of the entire USA that was almost completely colored red, with temperatures in those red areas soaring with Fahrenheit temperatures in the high 90’s and lower 100’s. In my lifetime, I have never seen a TV weatherman’s map of this country that showed such a wide area of the country suffering from unbearable heat at the same time.

Then there were the hurricanes that racked the Southern coastal areas of the United States in 2005. There has never been a year in the recorded history of this country when five hurricanes hit the southern US coast in one season, or when two of the hurricanes were initially rated as category five - the most powerful level of hurricane in destructive force. One of these was Hurricane Katrina, which completely flooded the city of New Orleans, caused billions of dollars in damage to property, and killed thousands of Americans.

The totally erratic weather patterns of 2005 are continuing into 2006 around the world, with record highs and lows everywhere, and dire warnings about even more volatile weather to come due to Global Warming, which may be one of the plagues prophesied about in the Book of Revelation. Environmental changes attributed to Global Warming include increased severity of storms, severe melting of polar ice caps and loss of coastal lands, massive droughts or floods, and massive species extinctions. It therefore seems likely that these drastic changes in the weather of the USA are reflections of God’s judgment on America, and the world. Records prove that destructive weather patterns and earthquakes have been increasing all over the world, not just in the USA.

One example of this was the earthquake-generated tsunami that hit the coast of Indonesia in 2005, killing over 150,000 indigenous people, and many tourists from around the globe. Then there was the terrible earthquake that hit Pakistan, killing thousands more. Due to their severity and frequency, these disasters all seem to be signs that God is punishing the whole world for its End Time apostasy, not just America. When the World Trade Center in New York was destroyed during the Terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, Yahweh God’s Wrath and Judgment was also likely being shown to the people of the United States.

One reason the American people may have lost Yah’s divine protection is because they are no longer the spiritual lights of the world that they were called to be! Eerily, the destruction of the World Trade Center echoes the destruction of the Tower of Babel. Just as the city of Babylon was in that bygone era, New York City, and Manhattan in particular - is the heart of America’s business and economic world, and a world financial hub. As such, it is the headquarters for many multi-billion dollar international businesses and industries. In fact, the Twin Towers were viewed as the international heart of Capitalism by many icons of the financial world. Therefore, when Yahweh allowed those two gigantic pillar-like towers dedicated to “Mammon” to collapse in a terrifying avalanche of fire, smoke, bodies, and debris, Yah was sending a clear spiritual warning signal to America - and to the world!

Through this dire warning, some Americans were reminded of Christian values that too many of them had previously forgotten, or ignored. A few made some much-needed changes in the way they conducted their lives and businesses. However, the true implications of this national disaster were not really made apparent to many Americans, and too many of them refused to believe, or were woefully unaware, that God was judging America, and holding them accountable for their sins.

The godly values that all Americans need to uphold in order for God’s blessings to be restored can partly be found in two of Yahshua’s admonitions against money and wealth. The first is that “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil” (1 Timothy 6:10). The second is that we should “store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:20-21). Our focus in this life is therefore not to be on the acquisition of wealth, or material pleasures. Instead, we are to care for our needs, and the needs of our families and communities, in a spirit of compassion, forgiveness, brotherhood, and love. Unfortunately, however, most Americans are slaves to credit, and are very wasteful in their propensity for buying more than they can possibly use in any given period - whether it be food, clothing, possessions, or entertainment.

Two other values that are being severely undermined in America (as in Europe) are the institutions of marriage, and the family. The escalating push in the media and Hollywood for the full public acceptance of homosexual marriage and lifestyles - if allowed to go unchecked - could result in tragic moral consequences in other areas. For example, it has almost become a prerequisite in our schools to teach that homosexuality is perfectly acceptable! But has everyone truly considered the possible consequences of such thinking, or how offensive it is to God?

Despite the charm and good-humor that some homosexuals in the entertainment industry convey, we must not lose sight of the fact that they are blatantly unrepentant sinners. In fact, all abnormal sexual behaviors are considered hideous crimes in the eyes of God. Therefore, the truth is that legalizing homosexuality, and making it a socially acceptable behavior, could also lead to the acceptance and legalization of such aberrant and sinful behaviors as polygamy, pedophilia, partner swapping, and incest! Do you doubt this possibility? Think again!

As an example of how lax America is becoming in its view of morality, an American court recently ruled that any woman who puts herself in a “compromising position” such as in a hotel room, or man’s apartment, can be considered to be giving her consent to be a potential sexual partner - whether she says so or not! The problem with a law like this is that any woman - even one who is unavoidably forced to walk alone at night - could be viewed as “asking” to be raped simply by her accessibility, and vulnerability!

Even if we do not commit sinful acts, or openly support them, our meek acceptance of them is as much a sin as actually performing these ungodly acts ourselves. Therefore, unless America and the world turns away from their self-centered, immoral, and materialistic lifestyles, it is my belief that this Divine Judgment of the United States will continue to get worse. In fact, this period of Judgment and destruction will likely not be fully lifted from America until Christ returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom on Earth.

The Amazing Star Gospel Connection of the USA and Israel, and the Zodiac in Bible Prophecy

Copyright 2007 By Helena Lehman

October 16, 2007 - There is an intriguing lead in determining where the United States figures in prophecy - a lead that no one to my knowledge has ever noted before, but that God has shown me. It stems from the fact that the continental United States consisted of forty-eight States from 1912 until 1959, when Alaska and Hawaii were added. Up until that time, the number of States was the same as the number of Levite cities in Israel, and constellations in the Ancient Mazzaroth! (NOTE: Mazzaroth = Hebrew word for “Zodiac”) Could this be just a coincidence, or a highly significant clue into determining the destiny of the United States? Let’s examine this clue to see what it may be trying to tell us.

Since Alaska and Hawaii are not physically part of the mainland appropriated by the United States, and do not share a common border with the other States in the Union, they are not part of the continental United States. There are therefore still only forty-eight States that make up the mainland United States. Could it be that these forty-eight States are meant to represent the forty-eight Levite cities, and constellations of the ancient Zodiac? One day, God gave me the answer to that question!

It happened while I was praying to God for help in finishing my book
“The Language of God in Prophecy” (available for purchase at, and While in prayer, I had an amazing vision of the United States, and its role in history. In this vision, I saw a bright blue sky where cool, cloudy Alaska suddenly appeared superimposed over a big silver crescent, and the islands of hot, sunny Hawaii were superimposed over a big yellow Sun shape. (See illustration shown full size in the Adobe PDF file linked to below).

In the next instant, the forty-eight continental States were spread across the heavens beneath the Alaska Moon and Hawaii Sun. When the vision ended, it became clear to me that Alaska was being depicted as an allegorical representation of the Moon, while Hawaii was an allegorical representation of the Sun. Meanwhile, the forty-eight other States stretched out across the sky could only mean one thing: they must represent the forty-eight constellations of the ancient Zodiac!

This vision clearly showed me that the fifty States represent the forty-eight constellations, and the Sun and the Moon that pass through the Zodiac every year! Could this be why 50 white stars superimposed over an azure background represents every State on the US Flag? Uncannily, while researching the history of the US Flag for this book, I discovered that the thirteen stars on the original flag were intended to represent a new constellation! This means that what I saw in a vision was anticipated and symbolized in the US Flag from the beginning.

This suggests that, coupled with the US Flag, my vision is Yahweh’s way of showing all Americans how important the USA is to Him as a nation, and a people “under God.” Incidentally, the original US Flag had thirteen stars on an azure background, and thirteen stripes: seven red, and six white. The stripes stand for the thirteen original colonies, which became the first thirteen States in the Union. Interestingly, the total number of the stripes in one color, 7 and 6, also indicate the year that America declared its independence from Great Britain. To better understand my meaning, click on the following URL to see the Adobe PDF file with illustrations showing the USA’s connection to the Mazzaroth, and the Original Flag of the USA with its 13 stars and stripes:

This idea that the United States is a symbolic representation of the Mazzaroth, and of literal and spiritual Israel is also substantiated by the dream that the patriarch Joseph had when he was a boy (Genesis 37:9-11). In that dream vision, Joseph was shown that the people in his life who were signified by the Sun, Moon, and stars would one day bow down to him. Like Joseph’s Israelite family, the United States represents every nation on Earth, and one day every nation will bow their heads to Christ, including the United States! But on another prophetic level, Joseph’s dream vision also suggests that the United States is truly viewed as a literal part of Israel in prophecy by Yahweh God, not just a spiritual part of it.

The association of the numbers thirteen and forty-eight with the United States are prophetically significant in several other ways. First of all, the USA’s connection to the number thirteen signifies that it is symbolically connected to the Sun transiting the Twelve Houses of the Zodiac, as well as to Jacob and the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and Christ and the twelve apostles. Secondly, America’s connection to the number forty-eight indicates that it shares a relationship with the Tribe of Levi, and the Gospel in the Stars.

Allegorically, the Tribe of Levi was the spiritual center of the nation of Israel, and - alongside the Bible and Yahshua (i.e. Jesus) our Messiah - the Gospel in the Stars should be a spiritual guide for the world. Since the number 48 is connected to the Gospel in the Stars, which recognizes 48 constellations, it is another clear indicator that America is meant to be a great source of spiritual light in this dark world. Based on the number of professing Christians in the U.S. population, and the many missionaries these American Christian congregations have sent out into the world, the United States is unquestionably the statistical world leader in both numbers of missionaries and churches.

Through Moses and Aaron, the Tribe of Levi inherited the priesthood. This suggests that, besides being considered a literal part of Israel, the United States is also being reckoned as the Tribe of Levi! This means that America is being called to give more spiritual light to the world than any other nation today outside of the nation of Israel. America, then, is the modern spiritual “navel of the world,” just as Giza in Egypt is the physical “navel of the world.”

As my friend Janice Moore pointed out to me, a navel is a scar left when a baby is severed from its mother by the cutting of the umbilical cord. It is therefore a potent symbol for the Fall of mankind, for this was when Adam and Eve were severed from their personal relationship with God. In addition, a navel is a symbol of our need for spiritual and physical redemption from sin
and death. All professing Christians therefore serve to remind the unredeemed sinners in the world that they are damned without Christ. As the greatest bastion of Christianity in today’s world, America is a symbolic navel of remembrance among the nations.

How Prophecies in Daniel and the Psalms May Pinpoint the Timing of the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ

By Helena Lehman

September 6th, 2007 - Following the publication of my article about the prophetic nature of Psalm 108 entitled: "The Amazing Hidden Prophecy In Psalm 108, and the War on Terror - Are They Connected?", some readers had questions about my statement that the Rapture may occur in the years 2010 through 2012. They had this question because a growing body of believers thinks the Rapture may occur around Rosh Hashanah 2007, which falls on September 13th this year. Though I have heard that some think this, I do not think so. This is because, as disclosed in "The Language of God in Prophecy," God has given me unusual wisdom concerning the prophecies in the Psalms, the Book of Daniel, the Book of Enoch, and the Great Pyramid - which is a prophecy in stone!

Yes, we are very close to the time of the Rapture! But it is still probably a few years away. My assumption is based on many factors. The first key to finding the year of the Rapture is in realizing that the Psalms are numerically and prophetically connected to yearly events in the 20th and 21st Century. The first 100 Psalms are tied to each year in the 20th Century, and the remaining 50 are tied to the first 50 years of the 21st Century. The second key is found in noting that devout Jews have read the Hallel Psalms 113 through 118 in their synagogues at every major Jewish holiday for three millennia. In this way, God has made sure that these six songs of praise would never be forgotten! Click here to view an illustration regarding the prophetic nature of the Hallel Psalms.

Now the question is, if all of the Psalms are prophetic, why would God single out these six psalms above all others? The answer has to be that the Hallel Psalms are connected to years of extreme importance to the Jews. Now, in the minds of religious Jews, nothing could be more important than rebuilding their Temple, and seeing their Messiah come. The Hallel Psalms could therefore be tied to the fulfillment of these events.

So why do I think the Rapture will occur sometime between the start of 2010 and the end of 2012? This is tied up in the end date for the Mayan calendar in 2012 AD, as well as the prophetic "inches converted to years" measurement of the central connecting passages between the chambers in the Great Pyramid, or Pillar of Enoch. Through study and prayer, it was revealed to me that the Grand Gallery symbolizes the Church Age, the Antechamber into the King’s Chamber signifies the Great Tribulation, and the King’s Chamber represents the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. Click here to see my illustration of the Pillar of Enoch’s interior chambers, which was taken from my book on prophecy.

Now, the final inch of the Great Step in the Grand Gallery leading to the Antechamber is tied to the year 2010 AD, indicating that the Great Tribulation may begin immediately after this date. Since Jews begin and end their years on Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets, it is possible that the Great Tribulation will begin after Rosh Hashanah in 2010. After all, the Great Pyramid indicates that the year 2010 is a significant year, and Psalm 110 speaks of Christ sitting on His heavenly throne, and watching the events about to unfold on the Earth that will lead to His Millennial Kingdom, I therefore think that the Rapture will likely occur in the year 2010.
Scripture indicates that the Rapture will occur before the 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls full of plagues associated with the Great Tribulation in the Book of Revelation. If so, the Hallel Psalms 113 through 117 are likely tied to the years 2013 through 2017, when many horrible plagues of God’s Wrath will be poured out on the Earth.

There is one other prophecy that ties in with this: Daniel’s 70 Weeks, which shows the time between King Xerxes, or Cyrus of Persia’s decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, and the First Coming of Christ:

"Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate." - Daniel 9:25-27 (NKJ)

According to most prophecy teachers, including myself, the final week in this 70-week prophecy pertains to the seven years of the Great Tribulation. However, while I was deep in prayer, God showed me that this entire prophecy would be fulfilled several times - including the final week that most prophecy teachers claim has never been fulfilled, or has only been partially fulfilled.

The first time that Daniel's Seventy Weeks could have been applied is in 486 BC, when King Xerxes issued a decree allowing the Jews to return to Israel, and rebuild Jerusalem. Now, sixty-nine weeks of years is 483 years. 483 years after 486 BC, Daniel’s prophecy pinpointed the year of Christ’s birth in 3 BC, or - if the alternate date of 457 BC is used - the beginning of Christ’s ministry in 27 AD. However, in its future application, Daniel’s Seventy “Weeks” also may pinpoint the exact year of the Rapture, and Christ's Second Coming! This is because - in May of 1948 - God Himself issued a decree to restore and rebuild not just Jerusalem, but all of Israel.

Now, if we view those 70 weeks of years, or 490 years in Daniel’s prophecy as only 70 years, and we assume that 1948 is the beginning of the countdown to the seventieth year, then the year 2018 is singled out as the end year when Daniel’s Prophecy will be fulfilled. In the prophecy of the Seventy Weeks, the weeks of years are divided up into 7 weeks, 62 weeks, and one final week. But in the future, with the exception of the final week, the 62 and 7 weeks are to be viewed as years that are added in reverse to show the reversal of history that Christ is achieving through His victory over Satan. Click here to see the illustration of the Reversal of History from my book on prophecy.

If we look at the first 62 weeks of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks as 62 years, and add 62 to the year 1948, we arrive at the year 2010, the same year that is singled out by the Great Step in the Pillar of Enoch. After this, the seven years of Daniel’s prophecy follows, showing the period of the Great Tribulation from 2011 through 2017. This means that the final year of the 70 marks the year 2018, which could likely be the first year of the Millennial Reign of Christ on Earth!
