Orion (Betelgeuse configuration) / Taurus and the soon coming of Jesus Christ
I've always loved to explore the stars and certainly believe in the Biblical significance in the signs and wonders. And for the past two mornings (4,5 November 2012) I've awakened at or near 4:30 AM, as if an internal alarm clock woke me. (I usually wake up at around 6 AM) and have been fixating, drawn in my spirit to look out my window and observe the heavens.
My eyes are drawn to a very prominent red beacon that marks a microwave tower and the Holy Spirit prompted me to look up from that precise point of that red beacon and mark it as something significant. In order to mark this exact location I used a cardinal heading on a magnetic compass (calculated magnetic north deviation accounted for) and mark the compass bearing.
I did this morning and it was 262 degrees from my window. I then went into Stellarium and calculated this reading in my area and the past two dates and times.. I found EXACTLY on that magnetic compass mark the giant star Betelgeuse at the apex of a triangle formed by Rigel and Jupiter respectively. I researched Betelgeuse and was shocked to see how much this "red star " is expected to play a role in the possible demise of the world.
However, doing some more research I was blown away to discover the following website that ties what I found to be a connected to scripture of Jesus' soon return and victory over Satan and Judgement. Please check out this link:
It is also very interesting to note that Douglas A. Elwell in his brilliant book Planet X, The Sign of the Son of Man, and the End of the Age Defender Publishing LLC, noted Orion and Taurus as follows: (Looking at Psalms 19) "God will appear in the heavens somewhere in or near the constellation of Orion, on a path that will take him through the constellation of Taurus. "
Bullinger in the witness of the stars writes that “Orion was anciently spelled Oarion, from the Hebrew root, which means light. So that Orion means coming forth as light” (p.125). The constellation of Orion is mentioned in Job 9:9, 38:31, and Amos 5:8.
The Hebrew word for this constellation is Chesil, which means “a strong one, a hero, or giant.”
Issuing forth from the feet of Orion – picturing Christ the Messiah returning in power – is “Eridanus” – meaning “the river of the Judge.” This sign is an immense constellation, consisting of 84 stars, running in a serpentine (river-like) course, bending, and twisting down till it is out of sight. It speaks of judgment and of fire. It is a fiery river. It is interesting that when Christ returns, and fights against the armies that oppose
Him outside the city of Jerusalem, He will trample them like grapes in a winepress, “outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs” (Rev.14:20). That is, a distance of 184 miles – a river of blood flowing from the Kidreon valley, or Valley of Jehoshaphat (“Valley of Judgment” – see Joel 3:12-14), down to the Dead Sea, and thence to the Gulf of Aqaba.
UPDATE: September 29, 2013: I was stunned to find this link regarding how ancients foretold of the son of the creator coming using Orion as the constellation on the base of a Pyramid. Please see these links below:
PRAISE GOD... COME SOON DEAR LORD JESUS... AMEN.
