The Bible tells us in Genesis 1:14 that it is the lights in the firmament
(sun, moon, and stars) that declare His TIME: days, months, and years.

Notice that rabbinical precepts, plant growth, etc. do not factor into determining time.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day
from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.“
Genesis 1:14
All three of these things depend on each other. If you do not use the lights in the
firmament: 1) you will miss signs, 2) you will miscalculate the seasons that go with
the signs, 3) you will not know what Biblical time it is, and 4) then you will not look
for signs at their expected times. You will miss vital warning signs meant to call your
attention - for reflection and re-prioritizing of your life. That time is running out...

The Garden of Eden & The First Prophecy

The most important prophecy and theme of the Bible, was given at the
very beginning - and will continue throughout the entire Bible, and history
of the world. When mankind sinned, God promised that He would send
a Redeemer; and He gave them word pictures to remember His promise.

“And I will put enmity between thee [the serpent]


and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed;
it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

This was important, so that the Redeemer would not inherit

prophecy! The Redeemer would also bruise (inflict increasing injury)
upon the work of Satan. This would primarily happen at the
events of Calvary; but, will also continue to happen largely
during the Tribulation, and at the end of the Millennium,
when He will have finally crushed the serpent, and his
workings.
This prophecy is still in play, and is about to reach the next
major bruising of Satan, and the mystery of iniquity.

The first book of the Bible, Genesis, tells us the story of Abraham. God called him
out of Ur of the Chaldees; but what is less well-known is that Abraham was not
just a rancher or shepherd, he was a very intellectual and educated person.
He was actually an astronomer, very familiar with the stars. In fact, a lot of
people from his town, Ur of the Chaldees, were very familiar with the stars and
that's even referenced later on in scriptures, in Daniel, of how people from there
were nicknamed Chaldeans, those people who were associated with astronomers
of those days. History attests that Abraham was very educated about the stars.
When you read these stories in Genesis, if you ever wondered why does
Abraham always get invited to the king’s palaces where ever he goes when he
went to Egypt and other places as well; he always got invited - he had access to
the king’s court. That was because he was an astronomer. He was very well
educated - a Ph.D in a sense - and even extra-biblical historical sources shed
light on this, too.
He was often consulted and asked about the stars and this knowledge is why he
had access. But when we consider that Abraham was an astronomer and very
familiar with the stars, it gives us a different perspective of when God gave him
ABRAHAM the promise:

“...Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars,


if thou be able to number them:
and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.“
Genesis 15:5

When God made a promise to Abraham, that his seed was going to be as the
stars of heaven, He was talking to an astronomer who had studied the stars and
knew full-well the depth and intricacy of the celestial clock, and the movements,
and the celestial lights in the firmament.
“And Abraham
said, My son, And we need to take note that God Himself, right here, was calling Abraham's
attention to the stars, telling him to look up at them. He is telling him, “Look at
God will provide the stars and these stars are a picture and correlation to your lineage and the

his lineage.

some ancient stars & constellations abraham & job would have been familiar with:

orion pleiades
Job 9:9; 38:31 Job 9:9; 38:31
arcturus
Job 9:9
the lion hydra
historically Job 26:13

1
Abraham, as an astronomer, is well attested to by historians: Babylonian historian Berosus, Josephus, and the Greek writer Hecataeus.
As well as Sir Walter Raleigh's "The History of the World", Chap. II, Sec. 2, p. 172 and Chap. III, Sec. 4, p. 176.).
2
Genesis 11:28; Daniel 2:10
4
It's also interesting that the Bible tells us about Job. He was
contemporary to the time of Abraham. They lived at the same time,
approximately; but when we read in the book of Job, we find that he
was also very familiar with the constellations. God even mentions
The Mazzaroth (Job 38:32), which is the collection of stars (often called
the zodiac in astronomy). God then asked him about Orion, and He JOB
talked about specific stars of Arcturus, etc. - Job was very familiar with
the constellations.

When we look at Abraham’s lineage, his son was Isaac. The Bible doesn't tell us
much about Isaac as far as his knowledge of the stars but when you consider that
he's the son of Abraham, a well known astronomer who got around in the social
circles of the day and who had access - he no doubt told Isaac about the promises,
ISAAC and pointed him to the stars, and pointed out the different constellations that
they knew at that time - and the stories they knew went with the stars and signs
at that time, too.

So Isaac was familiar with the background and the


stars, no doubt Abraham told Isaac about the promises
- of when he talked to God and God gave him a
promise - that was being fulfilled through Isaac and
that Isaac was a fulfillment of the promises; and every
time that Isaac looked up into the stars Isaac should
remember that he was the fulfillment of God’s promise.

“...Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide...“


Genesis 24:63

The Bible does tell us that Isaac went out to meditate in the field at evening time,
and this, apparently, was something that he did regularly every single day.
He just got away from the busy-ness, and the work of the ranch, and just went
out, and looked up at the stars and talked with God; and thought about the
promises God had given him, and all that He had done in his father's life,
and in his own personal life.
It is also interesting, when you further read the rest of the story, that he looked
up at this particular instance and saw his approaching bride-to-be - a very
interesting correlation to us. Likewise, we are told to look up, and we are
expecting to see our Bridegroom Redeemer. So Isaac, no doubt, was very familiar
with this story, to the promises conveyed through the picture in the stars.
Now his son was Jacob (also later named Israel), and then one of his prominent
sons was Judah.

ABRAHAM ISAAC JACOB/ JUDAH


ISRAEL

5
One of Jacob’s other sons was Joseph, one of the younger sons. When he was
a young teenager, he had the dream about the 12 stars (Genesis 37:9) - and this
connected the different brothers, the future tribes through the sons of Jacob,
to the stars. They would each be associated with the constellation with the stars.
The Bible tells us Jacob noticed, and made a mental note of the prophecy, and the
connection with the stars. Remember, he was the grandson of Abraham, and he
was the son of Isaac. He was very familiar with the importance of the stars with
the promises that God gave to Abraham, and the fulfillment of what was going
to be through their line. The stars are very important to the entire line.

Example:
JACOB/ JOSEPH Judah is associated
with the lion
ISRAEL Genesis 37:9 constellation

And of course we talked about how Judah later became associated with the lion,
but then also how he would be connected to the royal line. Messiah the
Redeemer but also the kings would come through his lines. Then later on in
numbers we learn that a certain star sign associated with the coming of the
sceptre and the promised redeemer who later on many generations later came
as Messiah as Jesus Christ.
The Bible mentions that our Lord springs out of Judah physically, but also
metaphorically portrayed in the heavens, too. When we watch the progression
of Jupiter, it goes from Judah straight to the woman. So there are different ways
the same story is being told and it is all connected to the stars.

So backing up to Jacob, again, at the end
of his life on his death bed, he gathered all
of his sons, and told them what would
ABRAHAM ISAAC JACOB/ JUDAH
ISRAEL happen to their descendants in the last days.

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather


yourselves together, that I may tell you that
which shall befall you in the last days.“
Genesis 24:63

Again, keep in mind, he's the grandson of Abraham, he's the son of Isaac
- he knew the promises connected to the stars, and portrayed in the stars.
His grandfather had talked with God. He knew the importance of the connection
of Joseph's dream, and he knew full well what the importance of that
represented, and what it portrayed.
And so he told his sons that which would befall them in the last days; and this
goes to the Hebrews concepts of the days going back to Creation. They know that
time is limited - our world has an expiration day. The Creation week represents
7,000 years; each day correlates to a 1,000 years.
This is their understanding, and we see this throughout the Bible, too.
They understand this world is only going to be 7,000 years old; and then
this time will stop and eternity will begin.

THE LAST DAYS


WE ARE
1,000 “...in these last days”
HERE
YEARS - Hebrews 1:2 MILLENIUM
CREATION
DAY 1 DAY 2 DAY 3 DAY 4 DAY 5 DAY 6 DAY 7

So when we look at time and history, reflecting the days of Creation, we see that
the events at Calvary took place about 4,000 years after Creation, at the time
when Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, came into the world as foretold in
Scripture, and marked by specific celestial signs such as the Star of Bethlehem.
According to Hebrew understanding, our Lord came in the latter half of the
prophetic week.
And then we are about 2,000 years later, right at the threshold of Day Seven.
There's a lot of different arguments, among different chronologists, so if you try
to read up on it, you will have people with all sorts of different dates;
but, we are right at the threshold of the expected end of day six ending
and day seven starting.
And this is another reason why we know that we are in the end times - we are at
the last days, literally - because we know what Day Seven represents. The last
days is the time from about the time of Calvary to the end of the creation week,
day seven. That is the last days portion, because you are ‘over the hump,’
so to speak, the middle of the week (Day Four) - Christ came in the last days.

7
From that time point, everything was already on a downhill slide. We are in the
latter part of the week, the latter part of the creation week represented on a larger
scale of 1,000 years. Day Seven is the Millennium, indicating the day of rest.
But in different prophecies, this time period (where we are right now) is even
mentioned as being in the last days, because they knew it would be in the last days;
it would be in the latter part of the week.
So in the broad picture, prophetically, when it talks about the last days, it's talking
from the time of Calvary, around there, to the end of the Millennium.
And so, we should not be surprised to see Jacob mention prophecy, regarding the
last days, that covers events right near the end of prophetic time, and mentioned in
the book of Revelation. What Jacob has to say is not some easily dismissed prophecy;
no, we are told specifically that this is going to be applied in the last days.
So, before we get back to Jacob’s particular prophecies, you can see where we are
right now - also in the last days. In fact, the past 100 years, you could even say,
we are in the last days, the perilous times - we're in the last days of the last days.

THE LAST DAYS

CREATION

THE LAST DAYS (Perilous Times)
(II PETER 3:3; II Tim 3:1)

So, with that background in mind, let us look at


the prophecy that Jacob stated regarding judah:

“Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise:


thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies;
thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son,
thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion,
and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver
JACOB/ JUDAH from between his feet, until Shiloh come;
ISRAEL and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt
unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine,
and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
His eyes shall be red with wine,
and his teeth white with milk.”
Genesis 49:8-12

8
th e p rop hec y of sh i loh
Most prophetic passages in scripture have a two-fold application, with the
second being part of a larger pattern. In general, the first fulfillment serves
as a base pattern for understanding the second. When we look at this
specific Genesis 49:9-12 passage, we discern multiple future prophetic
applications that have not been fulfilled yet.

first application

The first application of the Genesis 49:10 verse deals with the historical figure Judah,
the son of Jacob, and how he was associated with the lion which became their tribe
emblem, displayed on their standard, in connection with the constellation as well.

The lion is the emblem The city of Jerusalem


Jerusalem was the
for the tribe of Judah, was often called Ariel:
capital city of Judah
even still today! “Lion of God” (Isa 29:1)

Sceptre:
a symbolic
staff held
by a ruling
monarch

Then, it states how the Messiah (the Redeemer) and the royal line would come from
Judah, from his physical seed which was fulfilled with the line of David. We are told
of their prosperity and affluence stemming from living in a land of milk and honey.
As such, large parts of the prophecy were fulfilled on a first application level.

9
second application

However, in a second application, scripture informs us about the ‘Lion of the Tribe of
Judah,’ meaning Jesus Christ, who as the King of Kings would come through that line as
well. We discerned this prophetic element in connection with the star of Bethlehem signs,
tied into Judah the Lion. Jesus rode a colt into the capital Jerusalem at his triumphal entry.

identifying shiloh

Shiloh Shiloh’s star


The name appears to be a Numbers 24:17 tells us, “There shall come a
personal pet name (nickname) Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of
that Jacob had for the Israel...” This prophecy connected a
promised Messiah and distinct, celestial sign with the King /
Redeemer. The actual term, Redeemer, who would come from Jacob’s
Shiloh, means tranquil, rest, descendants - whose line, we know would
or peace. be Judah’s.
The wise men knew to look for a distinct,
both king & lawgiver celestial sign that would represent a king
“For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our - coming from Judah. A sceptre represents
lawgiver, the LORD is our king...” - Isaiah 33:22 a king’s power and authority.

During His first time, Jesus Christ identified


almost exclusively as a lawgiver - a teacher of
the Law of God. Only at the very end of His
ministry did He more openly acknowledge that, Jesus told the woman at the well, that He
yes, He was also the King of the Jews. The first was Shiloh - the expected Messiah and
time, He did not come to be King, even though Redeemer they were waiting for.
He was King. His second time, though, He will
be coming primarily as The King of Kings! “...I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ:
when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith
unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.” - John 4:26
It was common knowledge that the Messiah was
expected around that time. The wise men looked
for His birth. This is why Herod the king panicked
- Shiloh was expected around that prophetic time.

10
When the Lord came the first time, He came to be a light unto the Gentiles, such was
both Paul's understanding and that of the apostles. What we expect at this time is the
fulfillment of the second part of the prophecy, namely when Shiloh comes again to
gather His people unto Him to be with Him in heaven for a designated time.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord


Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him...”
- II Thessalonians 2:1

a light to the gentiles


When Shiloh - Jesus Christ - came the first time, He did not come to gather
the people of Israel - that would come later. It was prophesied, in advance,
that He was going to gather of the Gentiles (all peoples) first.

Redemption “And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant


The gathering is first a

Once we are redeemed,
“For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared
through faith in the

Redeemer’s work on the
and the glory of thy people Israel. And Joseph and his mother

- that will one day be
“That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that
picked up - redeemed
should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the
(Heb 9:28; Eph 1:14; II
people, and to the Gentiles.” - Acts 26:23
Thess 2:1).

Jesus Christ, the Great Shepherd, came to call and gather the Gentiles (the whole world) first.
They will be gathered in first; then He will call out, and gather His people of Israel.

11
As the prophecy elements are both connected and converging, we should expect
the fulfillment of the second part to be similar to that of the first. This expectation was
confirmed when we discerned the double depiction of the star of Bethlehem sign in Judah
the Lion last year, an event not witnessed for over 2000 years!
Based on this double fulfillment of similar, unique celestial signs and supporting scripture,
we can conclude there's no plan B, meaning that there will be no future fulfillment of this
prophecy beyond the appointed time frame (See pg. 17-18). Our King is coming.
Those who were responsive to the call of the Messiah’s birth, wise to rise up, embrace and act
upon on the promises - they got to see the King, which is our blessed hope right now.
We are looking for the soon gathering of Messiah's people to go into our heavenly Promised
Land, as our predecessors were in their time towards earthly land, based on connected
scripture and celestials signs. We are fully aware that prophetic time for this fulfillment
is running out.
The midnight call has gone out: “...the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him...” - Matthew 25:6
We are getting ready right now to be caught up into heaven - yet aware that the prophetic
passage extends further into the future, designating a time when the Lord gathers his people
once again, around the epic battle of Armageddon. Scripture subsequently directs our
attention even beyond this time, to the time of the millennium and the marriage feast of the
Lamb, part of the same fulfillment yet to transpire.

The wise men were the only recorded people who saw the prophetic star foretelling the
Messiah’s birth (Numbers 24:17). The Bible also tells us that these individuals were
astronomers (wise men / magi) - who were from the east (Matthew 2:1-3). They were
using Babylonian astronomy when viewing the heavens. They saw the sceptre in their
concept of the lion. Likewise, we would do well to note this perspective - as we look up
into the heavens - to see our redemption drawing nigh!

Throughout Babylonian art, the lion motif


is very consistent: a treading lion.

Over time, the empires changed hands, but the astronomical records kept being handed
down; so sometimes, these perspectives are titled interchangeably. Generally, we will
refer to it as the Chaldean or Babylonian astronomical perspective.

astronomical gold standard


Historians remark how the Babylonians had astronomical records that went
back to the founding of Babylon, even to the time of Nimrod. At the capture of
Babylon by Alexander the Great, they had 1,903 year’s worth of astronomical
observations. At Alexander’s entrance to Babylon, the Chaldeans gave a copy
of these records to Callistheses, who passed them on to Aristotle.

The prophecies regarding the Promised Redeemer ▪ Messiah ▪ Shiloh


- go from the very first prophecy in the Bible, all the way to the end;
from the beginning to the ending. The prophecy does not change.
The signs do not change. The story does not change.

To understand the last book of the Bible, you must understand everything that comes
before that. It is written, assuming that you have read the previous, and are familiar
with the Promised Redeemer, and what He will be accomplishing in the last days.

The ancient understanding of the ecliptic


constellations (the Mazzaroth), was that there
were twelve distinct sections, and that the
starting point of the twelve, was between the
woman and the lion.

Even the Egyptians depicted this ancient


understanding, blending the lion and the
woman concept - representing the overlap
and reset of the series and story.

The story of the Promised Redeemer is


literally from the beginning (Alpha) of the
story (declared by the heavens) - all the way
through the end of the story (Omega).

The prophetic story is also cyclical - the


patterns and shadows will be rehearsed again
at a later time, with a different level of
fulfillment - of the same story.

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending” - Revelation 1:8

“...I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last” - Revelation 1:11

“...I am the first and the last” - Revelation 1:17

His signs and story declared in the heavens will not change.

Coming back to understanding the last days...
We have to keep in mind that during these last days (of the last days), before it gets
to Day Seven, there is going to be a reset of time. Daniel 7:25 tells us that the mystery
of iniquity, Satan, will be allowed to alter time and play with time.
Apparently he's only going to be able to go back just a few years, about 3 1/2 years -
time, times, and half a time. There is going to be a reset and we always have to keep
that in mind it's not a straight timeline.
There is a reset, mentioned in prophecy, between the Sign in Shiloh sign (which we
are in right now), and the Revelation 12 sign. And we find that both of these celestial
signs are applied right now. The celestial sign that goes all the way to the beginning,
with Abraham and the promise of what would come through his bloodline, is tied

And that's why we see in the book of Revelation, when he gets to that point in
Revelation 12, he knows that his time is short, when his play time is cut short at that
celestial marker. Both of these celestial signs go together.
The sign and story that we are seeing right now start in Judah, is going to be
concluded in the Revelation 12 sign, and Satan does not want that to happen.
Back at the time of Calvary, this sign did not take place - because Jupiter wasn't even
in Leo in the last 10 years of Christ's ministry here on earth. We are seeing an
incredible back story that goes all the way back to the time of Abraham - right now!

22
Remember, Abraham told Isaac that God would provide Himself a sacrificial lamb.
Later on, Jacob prophesied that this Lamb would be the scepter-holding lion king,
gathering the world’s scepters unto him. The Lord has given us discernment and
understanding of the prophetic and celestial signs confirming that we are to
‘look up for our redemption draweth nigh’ indeed.
Amazingly, we are given the same promises that He gave to Abraham and Isaac,
passed on by Jacob, to his sons - confirmed by Paul to the church - about the current
gathering of Shiloh's people. We are expecting our Redeemer to come a second time,
and pick up what He has purchased and redeemed: His ready and waiting Bride.
Now that we have lifted up our heads, and we see the signs - just like Isaac lifted
up his head and saw his bride coming - we now both know and see that our
Bridegroom is drawing nigh! He's drawing our attention to the story being
rehearsed in the heavens right now, the story of His promises, the story of what
time it is, against the backdrop of Scripture.
So when we hear the call at midnight - when we hear the lion roar - we need
to rise up and we need to go out to meet Him halfway... with our hearts open,
ears responsive, and our lights shining bright, faithfully and lovingly embracing
His promises.
Knowing the amazing back story, we can go forward in well grounded faith and
trustworthy footsteps. Discerning and understanding the celestial signs above us,
we are assured daily of his promises. The more we study scripture, the more we
become familiar with the cry we are supposed to listen to and instructions we are
called to respond to. The more we embrace His promises, open up to receiving His
power and ability to overcome inner struggles, then we may boldly go out - even in
a spiritually dark world - and go forward in faith sharing his grace and mercy
with others.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up,
and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” - Luke 21:28

How do we know the description in Revelation 12 is not just symbolic?
While many Bible scholars are pretty much agreed that the narrative of this chapter
describes God's protection of Israel during this Tribulation time, there are several things
that strongly suggest that the opening scene in the chapter is a literal, physical celestial
scene that sparks the discussion and explanation and other references.
Several specific details are included in the description that are not referenced again during
the chapter. For the woman, those details include: clothed with the sun, moon under her
feet, crown of twelve stars upon her head. These are specific visual descriptions that are
not referenced again. It is interesting to note that to an observer on earth, they will not be
able to see this formation because the sun's brightness will clothe the entire constellation
during the day, and the moon will only be illuminated eleven percent. It will be more of a
specific astronomical indication.
Scripture in other places uses physical objects to start symbolic discussions of what it
represents. One example is Zechariah 5:1-4 where the prophet is shown a scroll, describes
its exact dimensions, and the angel tells him what the scroll represents. Even though it was
a physical and visual scroll, its meaning was symbolic. Twice, Revelation 12:1,3 uses the
word "wonder" to describe what John saw. This word, in Greek, has the idea of 'an
indication.' So, while there is great symbolic significance in this chapter, it appears they are
based on literal, visual events that the prophet saw in the heavens as indications of what
was going on in a larger scheme of things.

Will the Revelation 12 sign happen on the Feast of Trumpets?


No. The Revelation 12 sign is not on the Biblical Feast of Trumpets. New moon sightings (for
the 7th month) commonly occur when the moon is only 2-3%; this is normal. The moon that
was sighted on Oct. 2nd, 2016, in Jerusalem, was only 2.4%. The Feast of Trumpets (new moon
sighting) is expected to be on Sept. 21st, 2017, in Jerusalem. The Revelation 12 sign will not
start till about 1.5 days later; it will only last a maximum of about 22hrs. Christ was born on
the Feast of Trumpets (not Tabernacles), so it makes sense that (since He was already born) the
sign of the son of man would take place immediately after the birth shadow day.

Can you expand on what you mean by Mary/Israel never brought forth the Church?
Mary was only a spectator to Christ's ministry, she wasn't even made a disciple. She was
only a helper to the disciples. She had nothing to do with founding the Church, nor with
directing the Church council at Jerusalem, nor with picking the disciples, nor the events of
Pentecost, or with the Holy Spirit. Christ - alone - picked the disciples, gave them the Holy
Spirit, and commissioned them; first, to start spreading the Gospel to the Jewish people,
but then to go beyond, and into all the world - to reach the Gentiles - all tribes and
tongues. The Church body was largely made up of Gentiles, and that is who Christ even
specifically came for the first time.

Genesis 49:9-11

Let us take a look at a detailed description of this passage,


providing an overview of what we have learned so far.

First, it is important to know that there are different identities applying to different
prophecy segments over time, so whereas parts of the ongoing Shiloh prophecy have been
fulfilled already, others are ongoing and have yet to be fulfilled at future appointed times.

One of the main identities is the scepter Then there is also Judah,
which points to the royalty, the authority, an identity which has

Then, the lawgiver - an identity that Another essential prophetic concept to look at
points to the authority and governing is the “between his feet” segment which refers
roles that come with the scepter to the descendants, offspring, or genetic
working out in how a king provides lineage based on their different origins and
and maintains legal boundaries. applications throughout prophetic history.

ABRAHAM ISAAC JACOB JUDAH


When we study the Sign of Shiloh, it is very important
to look at the context - the prophetic backdrop - starting
out with Abraham and his journey coming from the
land of Ur, understanding he was familiar with the It is clear they used Jupiter,
early Chaldean and Sumerian perspective on the king planet, as the lawgiver
astronomy, and well versed in how they determined the and scepter, as they divided the
substance and border divisions of the celestial signs. star clusters equally, because of

in historical recordings on clay tablets and historic This knowledge was passed on
writings as well. through the generations.

30
Abraham's grandson, Jacob, who proclaimed the Shiloh prophecy
when he was blessing his son Judah - prophesying what would
transpire during the latter days. His prophetic blessing recorded
that Shiloh would come from the lineage of Judah.
JACOB JUDAH

But, remember one of Jacob’s other sons, was Joseph - whom we


know from scripture as the one who had the prophetic dream
about the twelve stars. Jacob knew and understood the story that
was proclaimed in the heavens, including the aspects of the lion, shiloh
the woman and the serpent, and that the stars his son Joseph
dreamt of would represent Jacob's twelve sons.
Joseph
The astronomical and prophetic knowledge the forefathers held
was passed on throughout their lineage and became common
knowledge among the Hebrew people. Judah, who to this day is
associated with the stars of the lion, would be heading the royal
line, the tribes out of whose lineage the Messiah - the son of a
woman - was foretold to come. Through Judah's line, the scepter
JUDAH and identity of lawgiver would be passed down as well.

Going forward through time, we see king David (who was


the first king of the line of Judah), the first one to hold the
scepter and thus rule and effectively be both a lawgiver and
practicing judge. Scripture tells us that he looked at his kingly
role as of a shepherd, and to his people as his flock. As such
he formed a foreshadowing of the coming Messiah.
King David

Progressing further, nearing the time of Jesus, the scepter and


titular authority was held by the Sanhedrin, the governing
assembly of representatives from every city in the land of Israel,
Sanhedrin until their rulership was taken over by the Romans.

Near the end of that time, the wise men came onto the prophetic scene, looking for the sign of Shiloh -
which foretold the coming of the Messiah. They based their calculation standards and insights on the
prophecy in Daniel, detailing the identity, time and age of Jesus' foretold arrival in Jerusalem which,
according to Jewish culture, would require him to be at least 33 years of age to be accepted as ruler.

“...there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel...” - Numbers 24:17
They knew, based on the celestial signs connected to Jacob's lineage, that Messiah was the
promised redeemer - Shiloh - the son of a woman to come into the world shortly. Not only
did they know that the sign of Shiloh was a star, they also knew what section of the heavens
along the ecliptic line they had to look at, based on Chaldean astronomical standards, namely
that of Judah. They knew Judah pointed to the head of Israel and understood the scepter was
discernible in the heavens, through the star of Bethlehem signs, as depiction of the scepter.

31

‘star of bethlehem’: very close conjunctions of jupiter & venus

the woman judah

In summary, the wise men, like Abraham and the Chaldeans understood that Jupiter was the
scepter and lawgiver, dividing the heavens and the twelve constellations. While observing
Jupiter's trajectory, they understood the retrograde movement defined a segment of 10°
in addition to which particular segment was allocated as Judah at the stars of the lion.
They knew the sign of Leo the lion was not the same as the segment of Judah.

They also observed Jupiter circle Regulus, ‘the king star', which formed
additional confirmation of the kingship being from the lineage of Judah.
They noticed that as the scepter progressed, it passed through the feet of the
lion, visually representing how the scepter would come out of Israel, rising
out of the lineage of Judah, and that what was being portrayed in the
heavens was a rehearsal of what would happen on the earth.

When Shiloh was born, springing out of the royal


line of Judah, He instantly held the title of scepter,
lawgiver and king. Unbeknownst to the Sanhedrin,
a take over had in fact taken place, as Jesus
automatically assumed His titles at birth.
Shiloh’s Birth

Christ did not enact His position publicly, till about thirty years after His
birth. But, a short while before He started His ministry, a messenger in
the form of John the Baptist came onto the scene, gathering a following
prepare ye among the Jewish people and preparing them for the Lord's soon

when John exited the prophetic scene.

- and the latter half of the Shiloh prophecy.

32
“Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine;
he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes.”
Genesis 49:9-11

The Shiloh prophecy is thus divided into two parts, one pertaining to His first
coming, the other to His second coming. At His first coming, Jesus manifested
certain aspects and a shadow of both the first and latter part. His entry into
Jerusalem - 3.5 years after the messenger - was the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy.
At the last supper Jesus shared with His disciples, He told them He would not
partake of the wine until the second coming, after the tribulation.
1st coming
After He was crucified and rose from the dead, the King of Kings - the Lion
of the tribe of Judah - was caught up (received, taken up, ascended) into the
heavens after a few days, holding the scepter and title while also remaining
the lawgiver - not ever going to give either identity up. We know, through
studying scripture, that His throne is established for ever and ever. This is
what is rehearsed in the Revelation 12 sign.

“And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations
with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God,
and to his throne.”
Revelation 12:5

Since the Lord is in heaven right now, we understand we have


to look for the scepter in heaven right now as that is where He
and thus the scepter is, understanding there is no representation
on earth at this time and the Lord has eternal ownership. After
He ascended, He left instructions to His lay shepherds, teachers,
disciples and apostles to go out and find the lost sheep, to start
the assembly and to prepare them. He will one day soon gather
pre-gathering His people unto himself; an event that has not happened yet.

The past 2000 years (colloquially termed the 'church age'), the
pre-gathering has taken place to bring the lost sheep back into the
fold. As the wise bride, we are looking for Him to come a second
time - the first time being when He paid our atonement. We're
looking for Him to make His appearance and pick up what He has
already redeemed. As we're looking for Him to come the second
time, we're looking for the same celestials signs, the same scepter,
the same segment of Judah that dealt with His first coming; thus
being given an understanding of when He will gather His people.
We are awaiting the moment when we will be caught up, raptured
in like manner as He was, to meet Him in the clouds, being
gathered unto Him. Until that time we're heeding the call to look
up and lift up our heads, witnessing the heavenly depiction of the
story of redemption, knowing ours is drawing nigh.

The Lord, who came symbolically from between the feet of the lion, will
not be birthed again, but will remain the eternal descendant of Judah - the
eternal ruler, and will therefore never depart the feet.
The second star of Bethlehem, that we witnessed, also brought our
attention to the hind foot area, reaffirming what we already learned about
the scepter and the lawgiver. On top of that we were given a third star of
Bethlehem, near the Zavijava star at the rear foot of the lion, as it was
when the Lord came the first time, based on the Chaldean perspective. So
we were given multiple pointers signaling the importance of the hind foot
and we are once again looking at the Judah segment, watching and
understanding what happened the first time He came, regarding the hind
his appearing feet. We're in the latter half of the prophecy right now awaiting the
fulfillment of our great expectation, the gathering of the people unto Him.
Looking back, the Lord has given us many signs and affirmations we are
in that time frame right now - being the last generation spoken of in
scripture, just as the wise men were given an approximate figure of the
Bethlehem or scepter star which along with the Judah segment divisions
‘other fold’ guided them on their journey to meet the king.

Lord's second coming, in 3.5 years, modelled after the first time He came.

picking up where prophecy left off


In essence, the Shiloh prophecy repeats on two levels, on earth through the witnesses and in heaven
through the Revelation 12 sign. When they discern what the Revelation 12 sign points to,
understanding the Shiloh prophecy paused when the Lord came the first time starting the church
age, and then picking up after the rapture of the gentiles at the same point on the celestial clock
where it left off. Then they will know the prophetic clock will resume for the Hebrew, or covenant
people, after our departure. The coming prophetic events are a mirror image of the first time, taken
to a higher level. Although Gentiles will still be able to find salvation after the rapture, the
prophetic focus is back on the Hebrew people preparing for His second coming after Armageddon.

The Lord will be treading out the wine press, riding into Jerusalem on
horseback as the King of Kings, partaking of the cup during the wedding
supper of the Lamb as foretold during the last supper with His disciples
during His first coming. These elements are all part of the Shiloh
prophecy, playing out above us through the lion, the woman, and below
her feet where we find Hydra the serpent, the raven, and the cup - as was
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob's understanding.
2nd coming

Only after the second coming, when the Lord rides into
Jerusalem, will Israel's gathering take place as He gathers
His covenant people from all over the world; and His
prince, David, will be their shepherd under the Lord's
delegated authority as will many other designated rulers
wil be handed partial governing authority as well. israel’s gathering
So, there are two gatherings, two folds: the Gentile fold and the Covenant fold,
Israel. Based on our understanding of scripture, the celestial signs and time
markers, we know where we are in the foretold prophetic time expecting His
soon appearing to catch us up. The more we understand about His first
coming, and His first tapestry of redemption, the more we will understand
about the second time when He will pick up His redeemed possession.

“...as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

When God judged the world the first time, the Bible records that Noah
“found grace in the eyes of the LORD ...and Noah walked with God.” - Gen 6:8-9.
“And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark;
for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.” - Genesis 7:1.
What would God say about me right now? Would He consider me righteous according to His standard?
Could I stand before Him? Does my life seek to serve Him first and highest above all?
Am I more concerned about what the world says about me, or what God will say about me?
- the answer will ultimately determine whether I will escape anything.

Our works and service have zero bearing on determining our salvation; but, they are our gratitude for our salvation.
Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. He told His disciples to consider themselves ‘unprofitable servants’ (Luke 17:10).
We add nothing to the redemptive work of Christ; but, we have duties and responsibilities as servants.
Our rewards come from our faithful service, and living a life that pleases Him.

NOTE: When Jesus Christ came as the light to the Gentiles, and He fulfilled prophecy on the exact day of His
triumphal entry - it was not on one of the Jewish feast days (although related). His coming to gather
His people (from His first time) should not be expected to land on a Jewish feast day shadow pattern either.

The Babylonians also used Jupiter’s precise retrograde movements as another means
to divide the ecliptic into equal sections of 30 degrees for the 12 constellations.
The retrograde movement measured out 10 degrees along the ecliptic, so special
regard was given to when Jupiter was at opposition (at its brightest), and the length of
the retrograde sweep.

Jupiter’s annual motion was applied by the Babylonians to define the


constellations of the zodiac. And when the planet was brilliantly opposite to the
Sun in the star sphere, the Babylonians gave it the special name, Nibir. In the
fifth tablet of the Tablets of Creation, the Enuma Elish: “...the station of Nibir
to determine their bounds,” refering to the boundaries for the constellations.
Origins of the Ancient Constellations: I. The Mesopotamian Traditions, Journal of the British Astronomical
Association, Vol.108, No.1, p.9-28
By Jupiter: Odysseys to a Giant, By Eric Burgess

As a result of Jupiter’s apparent looping movements, it traces


out a third of the constellation, i.e., 10 degrees of arc, in a
westward, or retrograde, direction relative to the stars.
The length of the retrograde equals 10 degrees.
The constellations are divided into segments of 30 degrees.

The Biblical account of Isaiah and Hezekiah, with the sun dial, the sun going
retrograde, and the resulting change being clearly 10 degrees difference, as
measured by causant retrograde - seems to also weigh strongly in favor of
viewing the celestial divisions by these 10 and 30 degree increments, as
measured by a retrograde ruler. When we also take into account the Biblical
note about the Babylonians coming down to learn about the wonder that was
done, we can see a connection with the celestial movement that they would
Isaiah & have noticed. Also, in context of this event, is Isaiah’s prophecy of the group
Hezekiah that would be taken into Babylonian captivity, which included Daniel, who
would become chief of the Babylonian Chaldeans (astronomers).

Note that it is quite common (with this ancient division method) for the
larger constellations (like Virgo) to span 2-3 division sections. So, just
because Jupiter is within the stars recognized as with a particular
grouping, does not necessarily mean that it is in the section divided out,
and alloted for that particular section.
Jupiter can be at the Virgo stars, yet still in the Judah section, at the same
time. This clock-work means of division, was the recognized standard for
dividing the constellations - going back to the time of early Babylon.

Jupiter was not in Leo (by modern boundaries) until 34-35AD;


this prophectic sign was not fulfilled at the time of Christ’s death.

A2
Another means that the Babylonians used to divide
the constellations (which apparently came into larger
use much later) was dividing the ecliptic
constellations equally, based on the vernal equinox.
This would slowly change over time, due to the
astronomical effect termed procession.

For the Babylonians, 150° marked the division between the lion and the woman.
Here are our calculations (based on a vernal equinox determination), of trying to
find out the 150° mark at different times in ancient Biblical history, especially
pertinent to prophecy.

We have been blessed to learn so many insights into God’s Word, His workings
throughout history, His directing of the celestial movements, and also how He
worked in the lives of Biblical individuals to give wisdom about His first coming.
Christ wants us to be lifting up our heads, learning, and watching for His return!

Note: This is the best of our understanding of these celestial events, and how they come together.
This material, especially technical points, are subject to change, as we learn more. We will try
to keep you up to date, to speed you along on your learning journey. We know these signs are
pointing to this time, but we do not know the exact day or hour. We are told to watch
- and to be ready. Be willing to learn, and go forward! Maranatha!

We knew the prophecy More research broadened
concerned the scepter being our idea of the constellation
between the feet; and our initial as a collection of the stars,
thinking was that it was and also how the ancient

lion - the front and the back. conceptual aspect to it as
This was a very elementary well. The lion was not just

and the constellation. larger than just dots.

AUGUST 8/9
Because the prophecy also mentioned not departing Judah (which we
take as the larger Leo constellation as a whole), we did get distracted by
focusing too much on the modern, internationally recognized borders,
as defined in 1930. We knew Jupiter would cross this, around the 8/9th.

AUGUST 8/9+
We realized that we lost focus of the conceptual understanding, by
focusing on the technical border too much. We also realized that
determining (and proving) the concept would determine the border.
This was also a historical understanding as well, with borders and
divisions following the artwork concept.

AUGUST 19
Combining the historical artwork concepts, with the technical
information, gives us a modified border concept that divides between
Leo and Virgo [not yet in Virgo’s concept, either], but is still
demonstratably within the hind leg, per historical star charts. Based on
these charts, though, August 19th appeared to be the last day that one
could have made a strong case (based on evidence) that Jupiter would
be in the hind leg. It would also have followed that the modified border
would be crossed shortly thereafter.

B1
AUGUST 26/27
Zavijava is the ‘Rear foot of the Lion’ according to the
Chaldean star charts. It was assumed that this might mark
the end of the lion grouping.

AUGUST 27+
Past this point, we know that it is two months to the start
of the Virgo stars, so there is a unknown gap, with an
unknown border, somewhere between these two groups.

September 27+
This would be a halfway point between the
two groups. Just a default, assumed border
area, until further information can be found.

October 27+
This would mark the start of the Virgo Chaldean stars (just measured
along the ecliptic). This was viewed as another assumed default
border, although we had nothing solid to definitively state that it was
‘the’ border. But, it did provide a working border while more
research was completed.

November 11
This would appear to mark the border between
sections, as defined by Jupiter’s retrograde movement.
We are now starting to have more academic and
technical documents for viewing the border within the
retrograde loop, using Jupiter (the lawgiver) to define
the loop arc measurement, and also a possible border
point (from various theories). One approach was that
the arc loop was within the border. This was also the
first possible border to consider, as we reached it.

The opposition point was very significant!


Not only was it right next to the hind paw (drawing attention to it), but it was also centered in the
retrograde loop (essentially circling both points). And, it was the day before the atonement memorial
(half-shekel) was due (on the 1st of the year). On top of that, this point was right between a loop of
events related to Esther (picture of the Bride) - and Passover (the Bridegroom Lamb)! This opposition
point was very strongly tied to the concepts of redemption, the Brideprice, the atonement ransom
- and the One who came to pay the price: Shiloh! In addition to that, Jupiter and the Moon also
highlighted both bookend events. The opposition point is a point of redemption.

The Shepherd’s Staff / Sceptre


Notice that from that redemption marker, the Sceptre traced out the Shepherd’s Crook / Staff! We are awaiting
the gathering of Shiloh’s people - the lambs that The Great Shepherd came to redeem! See John 10 and Psalm
23. On top of that, we see that the 1st of the 10th month, is when Esther (picture of the Bride) went to the king’s
house (Esther 2:16). That calendar point is just a few days before the border point, as marked by the next
opposition! This time frame is also within the 2nd and 3rd watch of the night (when Christ suggested we really
be expecting Him, Luke 12:34-40), when you scale up a day, to a standard year pattern. Also, it has caught our
attention, that the anniversary timeframe of the peace and safety calls that went out last year, essentially ends
on November 30th - the same days as when Esther goes to the king’s house! We do not know the day or hour,
but this shepherd’s staff timeframe does seem to be it. This is our best understanding, as of Nov 18th, 2016.

“Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

Only one person - Jesus Christ - has ever, or will ever, be born of a virgin. The Bible tells us who gave birth
to the Promised Redeemer: the virgin Mary; and, who gave birth to the sons of God: God. These are two
completely contrasting births, purposefully described to emphasize the vast differences.

not birthed again - adopted
Don’t look for a pregnancy picture with the Church - you won’t find one; we are adopted.
Scripture emphasizes that we are not born of flesh - we are not at all in any pregnancy / birthing picture.

“But when the fulness of the time was come,


God sent forth his Son, made of a woman,
made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law,
that we might receive the adoption of sons.
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth
the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying,
Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son;
and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”
- Galations 4:4-7

“...the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,


according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace,
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”
- Ephesians 1:5-6

We are not born again of water (pregnancy / flesh);


we are born again by spirit - legally - by adoption.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
...ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
...For we know that the whole creation groaneth
and travaileth in pain together until now.
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits
of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves,
waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”
- Romans 8:14-15, 22-23

The Disciples Understood the Sign

“the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”- Isaiah 7:14

Book of Isaiah
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government
shall be upon his shoulder ...Of the increase of his government and peace
there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from
henceforth even for ever.”- Isaiah 9:6-7

Book of Matthew
“Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken
of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,
which being interpreted is, God with us.” - Matthew 1:22

Book of Revelation
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman
...And she being with child cried, travailing in birth,
and pained to be delivered. ...And she brought forth a man
