“AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER”…

.

This Part 3 is perhaps the most amazing part of all, in this personal story of these heavenly constellations.

.

This 3rd section shows how this Gospel in the heavens concludes. Up till now, I didn’t realize just how well constructed was this heavenly love story, written in the night sky. But now it was time to see this amazing saga, and how it ends.

.

And unlike the make-believe children tales written by mortal men, this story is the only story ever told that speaks the truth when it ends with…“And they lived happily ever after” (see Revelation 21:4). Because, in reality, every earthly story ultimately ends with the death of all its participants. But in this heavenly story, the villains die, but the heroes end up living forever! So thisOrion Constellation and Dragon Constellation story not only ends with “happily ever after”, but is a true story as well, and not just a fairy-tale!

.

So read on…and behold what an amazing Creator we have! And discover what an awesome universe He has designed, in which He has signed His very own signature upon the Sun, Moon, and Stars… 

.

P.S. And may your own personal story likewise end with… “And they lived happily ever after.”

ARK OF THE COVENANT CONSTELLATION

.

By now it was spring (2009), as those Winter Constellations began to disappear below the western horizon, and those Summer ConstellationsTwo Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations once again appeared.

.

WALKING, PRAYING & STAR-GAZING… Being not much of a sleeper, can require one to take walks in the middle of the night, if possible. But in those dark hours, I could easily just stop and look up, to study the stars and constellations. And also, I could pray my nightly prayers, while walking, without anybody noticing (and needless to say, the exercise I got from walking was likewise beneficial!). A real “win-win situation”. And thankfully, the Summer Constellations were back again, so it was warmer!

.

Once again, appear"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Springtime)Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.orged that Two Birds Constellationbut now they didn’t look like birds anymore (see above drawing). Amazing enough, it now looked like a box or chest with a star on each side (actually the left side has 2 stars).

. 

So this constellation seemed to be the heavenly picture of the ancient Ark of the Testament, used in the temple service. This constellation is spoken of in the little Book of Revelation. Just listen… 

.

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come… And tArk of the Covenant & Cross/Scepter & Flower of the Field Constellations-you may sharehe temple of God was opened  in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament.” Revelation 11:18,19. WOW! So now this little verse from Revelation was taking on a much greater significance! Heaven seemed to be opening up! At least they were opening up to me! And I could see the Ark of God’s Testament was now appearing in Heaven! This was thrilling to witness these things!

.

THE ARK IN HEAVEN IS SEEN…ON JUDGMENT DAY

.

Now, this star-chart of Sagittarius below to the left, is from Wikipedia, in which this site’s editor sketched in this Ark of the Covenant Constellation. Now this Ark in the night heavens seemed to be a very dramatic fulfillment of Revelation 11:18, 19… “And the Ark of the Covenant Constellationnations were angry, and thy wrath is come… And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the Ark of His Testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.” Revelation 11:18,19. Notice in this verse that the Ark being opened in Heaven is in connection with Judgment Day (“And the nations were angry, and Thy (God’s) wrath is come… And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the Ark of His Testament“). So here is a fulfillment in the night heavens, which in addition, points out to us, just where we are in time… “That great and terrible Day of the Lord”. And if ever you could say, “And the nations were angry” it would be at this present hour, considering all the turmoil in the world right now! Wouldn’t it?Ark of the Covenant & Cross/Scepter & Flower of the Field Constellations-you may share

.

So now it seems that this was an amazing sign of just where we are in prophetic time! This sign in the heavens is a heavenly sign of a much greater phenomenon: that the true Ark in the true heavenly temple has likewise been opened. And these two verses in Revelation 11, lead us to the next chapter in Revelation: Revelation Chapter 12! And Revelation Chapter 12 is the foundation of Signs Of Heaven website.

SUMMER  & WINTER CONSTELLATIONS (2009)

.

THE SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS

.

At some point in time, the awareness  came that there were two sets of constellations. A set of Summer Constellations, and a set of Winter Constellations. The Summer Constellations started in the south, andsummer w/7stars & ark stretched all the way to the north. The Winter Constellations began with Orion, and stretched north to the Woman (AKA The Big Dipper, or The Great Bear).

.

SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS:

This sketch is of the Summer Constellations as they appear when in the western half of the night sky. The box-like constellation is the The Ark of the Covenant (AKA Sagittarius), and is in the south. To the right is both the Flower of the Field Constellation (AKA Scorpius) and the The Cross/Scepter Constellations (made of a few stars of both the Ophiuchus & Serpens Constellations). Farther to the north is the Crown of Revelation Twelve (AKA  Corona Borealis Constellation) and the star, Arcturus. Farthest to the north is the 7 Stars Constellation (AKA The Big Dipper

(so as to fit in all constellations, this sketch is not of proportional accuracy. The cactus and mesas are merely for aesthetics.)

THE WINTER CONSTELLATIONS (EASTERN HORIZON)

.

TWO-PART STORY…  And this time, an awareness also came, that they were telliEarly Winter Bible Constellations- darkerng a story: the wonderful Gospel Story. As writing this morning about this timeline (January 9, 2011), it just now becomes apparent that the Summer Constellations and the Winter Constellations are presenting the two primary aspects of God’s Salvation Plan. The Summer Constellations typify the ‘Follow Me’ portion of the Gospel (discipleship). The Winter Constellations typify the “Fighting the Good Fight” portion (persecution, consecration, fleeing from sin, victory over sin and Satan). Up till this point in time, I had no idea that God had written the entire Gospel Story in the night skies! And this was a new concept to me as well: that the Christian life is divided into two parts: the peaceful portion, symbolized by the Summer Constellations, and the warfare portion of the Winter Constellations.

.

ABOVE SKETCH: WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of Perseus Constellation  and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

NATURE…OUR TEACHER

.

Of course I had long beforehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Carl_Spitzweg_033.jpg this realized, that all of nature revealed the Gospel. For instance, the spider and his web was a perfect metaphor of the Devil and evil. The caterpillar changing to a butterfly was a metaphor of being “Born Again” into Christ.

.

But these starry constellations were like dots that, when connected, were actually pictures of the entire Gospel Story! There is nothing else in nature with this kind of actual pictorial depiction of the Gospel! Nothing! And what made this even more awesome was that these constellation-pictures were three-dimensional in appearance. They weren’t just “cave-man” quality artwork. And even more amazing was that they unfolded the Gospel story as they rotated through the night. For instance, Orion appears to be losing the battle at the beginning of his appearance in the east. But by the time he reaches the western skies, he is now atop the Dragon, in a victorious position. And so ashttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:SpiderWeb.jpg I began to see these things, it was truly a spine-tingling experience! Each time I saw a new Gospel-Constellation, my jaw dropped and my eyes blinked in astonishment! 

.

HEAVENLY HINTS

.

But really, why should it be a surprise that God has written the entire Gospel Story in the Sun, Moon, and stars? After all, He speaks of Orion as if Orion is a person. And God also speaks of Arcturus as if he were a father. And Revelation 12 speaks of two great signs in heaven…a woman and a dragon. So it’s not as if the Bible is silent about these signs. Because God plainly told us they were up there.

THE REVELATION 12 CROWN

.

  “Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”  Job_38:32

.

The summer of 2010, as I was walking down Summers Lane, I happened to spot a constellation I had altogether forgotten about. I once again saw that 12-star crown which I had seen years earlier. And summer constellations w/woman & crownastonishingly, it was in alignment with these other Summer Constellations (The Ark, The Cross/Scepter, The Woman). It was now apparent that this crown aligned with the other constellations in this beautiful heavenly processional! And all these constellations looked like a royal entourage, following that glorious star, Arcturus.

.

And all this made perfect logic. After all, here was Arcturus (which obviously symbolizes Christ), leading summer w/ark & womanthis Royal Ambassage, with the Crown of 12 Stars (symbolizing the people of God), as well as the Big Dipper (which seems to represent the 7 stars, or the 7 angels of the 7 churches), and the Woman of Rev. 12 (who seems also, to symbolize God’s people). And along with all these, the Ark (representing the heart of God), and the Cross/Scepter Constellation. Too incredible! Just listen to this…

.

  “…Canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”  Job_38:32. So here in the night sky, is an incredible fulfillment of this verse. Here is seen this Heavenly Entourage in the night sky, in which Arcturus leads this obvious symbol of God’s people…this Glorious Crown!

.

summer constellations with doves & womanMagnificent procession! (Note: Some astrologers conclude that there were only 7+1 stars in this constellation. But if one views this Crown Constellation carefully out in the country on a dark and clear night, there appears to be 12 stars plus 1 in middle.)

.

But the 7 prominent stars plus the 8th in the middle has much Biblical significance, as well. So if a person can only find those 7 stars, plus the 8th in the middle…that’s OK too! This is because it appears as a laurel wreath, which only reminds us of the ancient marathon runners. Just listen to this…

.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye mayhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lorbeerkranz_Zypern_rem.jpg obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.” 1st Cor. 9:24-25.  So it appears that God is once again presenting a double-entendre as this Glorious Crown appears not only as a laurel wreath, but also as a crown of 12 stars (+1 more star in middle). 

Sketches: ‘Crown of 12 Stars’ plus the Summer Constellations. (the Crown has 13 stars counting star in middle. Actually, five of these stars are very difficult to see. You must be away from city lights, and then they’re stCorona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseusill difficult. But with perseverance you may see them.)

THE CROWN OF REVELATION 12

.

Nowsummer w/ark & woman about last week (Nov. 2010), a very amazing picture found in Revelation 12 became apparent. The Crown of 12 Stars Constellation was directly over the head of the Revelation 12 Woman! This really puts an exclamation mark on Revelation 12…

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars” Revelation 12:1

.
So it became clear that there was a  tie-in between this Crown, and this heavenly Woman.

.

Do you see the significance of this? Here we have Arcturus (Christ), leading this marvelous procession, composed of this virgin woman (in labor), trying her best to take hold of this Cross/Scepter (which is summer w/woman & dovesbending itself, trying its best to come to her). And this Cross/Scepter is coming out of this Ark of the Covenant. And to top it all off, here is a Crown of 12 stars, hovering above the head of the woman (not yet on her head, but close).

. 

To use an expression, this is a ‘mind-blower’! And this is one major reason for this time-line account. This way, the Reader understands that the way and timing of these constellations being revealed, indicates that these constellations are not merely the result of human effort, trying to “force” these constellations into existence. In other words, the crown appeared years before it became apparent that this heavenly crown was just above the Woman of Revelation 12. And so, was it just dumb luck that this crown of 12+1 stars is located just beyond the Woman of Revelation 12? And was it just luck that this kingly Crown is next to that kingly Scepter/Cross? And was it only just a coincidence that all these, plus the Ark of the Covenant, Flower of the Field, and Two Turtle-doves Constellations happen to be following right behind Arcturus, fulfilling the Bible prophecy, “…Canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”  Job_38:32? Only a die-hard skeptic could remain unbelieving, with such astronomical odds against these “coincidences”.

.

BIGGEST AND BRIGHTEST CONSTELLATIONS

.

summer w/ark & womanAnd it must be mentioned that these are not merely obscure stars which comprise these Signs Of Heaven. These are the biggest and brightest constellations and stars in the heavens!

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” Revelation 12:1.

.

So even though I saw that crown years earlier, I never realized that there was this Woman Constellation till 20 years later! And now this crown was just beyond her reach, reminding us of this passage above from Revelation 12… “and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” !

FLOWER OF THE FIELD BOWS DOWN…

.

"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Springtime)Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.orgTonight (summer 2011) was the first time I’ve taken a walk in about six months, due to a torn ligament…or something similar. On this short walk, I noticed that as these constellations move westward, this flower constellation appears to bend more and more, until it almost bends completely down. This occurs as it travels into the western skies. It’s because, somehow the Earth rotates in order to produce this effect. This is a very wonderful phenomenon…and Biblical too! After all, the Bible says “the grass withers and the flower falls away”. And that’s exactly what this flower seems to do. It almost seems"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Autumn) Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.org to be bowing itself…in the direction of the bright and beautiful star, Arcturus (which symbolizes Jesus). This would make sense. After all, Scripture states… “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:11, 12. And the flower of the field represents the glories of Mankind, in Scripture. So the obvious inference is that all of Mankind will ultimately bow the knee to Jesus, on the Last Day.

TWO TURTLE-DOVES“…

.

"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Springtime)Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.org“As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it….For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.” Psalm 31:5, 7

.

This morning (January, 2011), it’s beginning to seem that these two birds are not seagulls. It would make much more biblical sense that this constellation is to be, not two seagulls…but two doves. After all, Turtle-Doves wTwo Turtledoves (Sagittarius)ere accepted by God in the temple service as an offering, if the person was too poor to offer a lamb. And since this constellation also appears as the Ark of the Covenant, turtle-doves only make sense. After all, turtle-doves were a recommended offering in the temple service…

.

“And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he hath committed, two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, unto the LORD; one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering.” Leviticus 5:7

.

Above sketch: Two Turtle-doves  ( This Two Turtle-doves Constellation is the same constellation as The Ark Constellation. This double entendre of both the Ark and Two Turtle-doves is an optical illusion (It is commonly called the Sagittarius Constellation.) Can be seen in south in warmer months, traveling from east to west throughout the night.) NOTE: The farther south you live, the more tilted are these constellations!

THE ARK TIPS

.

"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Springtime)Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.orgJust the other day (about August 15th, 2011) I noticed as this Ark Constellation moves westward, it appears to tip forward as though it is spilling out its contents. Now this is an amazing thing. Because if you’re familiar with the history of the Ark in the Old Testament, you know that nobody was supposed to touch or look into the Ark. But in the heavens is this amazing Ark Constellation going through the night AS IF IT’S TIPPING FORWARD AND SPILLING OUT ITS CONTENTS! But as summer approaches fall, the axis of earth shifts in such a way that this Ark appears to tilt more and more, as if it is tipping over! So what spiritual lesson can we learn from this? Well, for one thing, it seems to further fulfill that passage we looked at earlier…

."Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Autumn) Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.org

 “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come… And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament.” Revelation 11:18,19.

.

But another aspect to this “spilling out” phenomenon is: to answer this question, we must learn just what is spilling out of this Ark.

.

.

.

.

.

THE ‘CROSS-SCEPTER CONSTELLATION’

.

summer w/ark & womanthere shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel….” Numbers 24:17

.

OK. So the Ark Constellation appears to be tipping forward and spilling out its contents. But this constellation was revealed only several years ago (2008). Before this it only appeared as two birds flying northwestward.

.

But it was about 20 years earlier that I first noticed the Cross/Scepter Constellation. So you can imagine how surprising it was 20 years later, to now see that this Cross/Scepter appeared to be coming out of this newly discovered Ark Constellation! But there it was… that Cross/Scepter Constellation rising up out of the ArkArk of the Covenant & Cross/Scepter & Flower of the Field Constellations-you may share Constellation. So now it begins to make sense that God is willing to spill the contents of the Ark for the whole world to see. The Cross changed all that Old Testament harsh penalty concerning the Ark. Now it’s known that Aaron’s rod, which was in the original Ark, was really a picture of the Cross! But listen to the following prophecy… “there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel….” Numbers 24:17. So to see this Scepter rising out of this Ark, seems to fulfill this prophecy in a very literal sense. Of course, this prophecy ultimately concerns the coming of Christ to this world. But God has written this concept in the night sky. And it is up there for all who are of Christ’s faith to behold.

.

.

.

.

.

THE CROSS/SCEPTER IS FLYING TOWARDS THE OUTSTRETCHED HAND OF THE WOMAN CONSTELLATION…

.

 

summer w/ark & womanBut where was the ‘Cross/Scepter’ going? Then, looking to the north it was now apparent that it was going straight toward the outstretched hand of the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation. Well actually, it appears to be heading toward Arcturus, representing Jesus. But as you can see, this Cross/Scepter appears to be bending away from Arcturus, and instead, bending itself toward the Woman! This made perfect sense, picking up the theme of the book of Esther in which she went into the king’s chamber and reached out to grasp the king’s scepter. Do you see how absolutely amazing this heavenly picture is? This Woman Constellation which represents the Church, is grasping for God’s scepter which also resembles a cross! And you can go to the page which deals with this concept justsummer w/woman & doves by clicking here… The Revelation 12 Woman in Travail Constellation”

.

Now as I walked down the street each night, and gradually saw these things, it was totally overwhelming and awesome beyond belief! Certainly, all the torment and persecution I had suffered under Satan’s cruel hand, in past years, now seemed to pale, in comparison with these awesome constellations.

THE FALL CONSTELLATIONS REVEALED

.

VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION…

. 

It was back in about 2008 when I first noticed a constellation that appeared like two mountains and a very deep valley between them. This constellation appeared when the Glorious WhitValley of Decision Constellatione Horse Constellation was in the eastern sky and tipped as if this horse was falling backwards. This is because the rear-end and tail of the horse was also another very dramatic constellation that looked like a pyramid with four corners at its base. OK, so these two mountains and valley immediately reminded of the Bible verse which states… “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:14. So this passage from Joel’s fiery prophecy definitely spoke of a time just prior to Judgment Day. It spoke of a time in which the entire world will hear enough of the Gospel so as to make an intelligent choice as to who they wish to serve…Christ (Heaven) or Satan (this world).

.

But this constellation, while dramatic for me to look at, seemed a little “thin” to be sharing with others. This all happened three years ago in 2008.

.

Well just a few days ago (2011), my daughter was mentioning the Valley of Decision in the Bible. And it triggered a desire to take a closer look at this constellation group once more, several years later.  So out in the night sky, one of the first things I noticed, was that this constellation was smack-dab in between the Summer Constellations, and the Winter Constellations. This added force to my being on the right track about this constellation being the “Valley of Decision”, since it was right before the Winter Constellations, which are all about the “warfare portion” of our Salvation Pilgrimage.

.

FALL CONSTELLATIONS MAKE PLAIN JUST WHO

REALLY SERVES GOD, & WHO SERVES HIM NOT

.

Now why would this be significant, that the Valley of Decision Constellation is right between the Summer and Winter constellations?

.

Well this Fall Constellation group follows behind the “Come follow me” Summer Constellations, which are all about discipleship. So the Summer Constellations are all about beginning to follow Jesus. But after a while, these Fall Constellations show up to ask the question, “Are you willing to follow Me whithersoever I lehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hoffman-ChristAndTheRichYoungRuler.jpgad you? Are you willing to lay down your life for Me? Are you willing to forsake all of this present world, for the sake of gaining the world to come? Are you willing to fight the Good Fight, to gain the victory over sin, selfishness, and Satan?” These are the questions which Jesus asks each and every professed follower. Just listen to Scripture… “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?” John 6:66, 67. This is the very same question which the Fall Constellations asks us… “Will ye also go away?” And just because there are many persons WHO CLAIM to be followers of Jesus, doesn’t mean that they are willing to give up the world for Jesus.

.

There are many of us, like Judas, who love the things of the world, and when called to “forsake all”, are willing to sell Jesus out for “a few pieces of silver”. Oh, such persons may continue to attend church each week. But such will choose in heart, to reject the call to forsake all, and fight the fight. And though such may continue to attend church, we will lose whatever light that may have previously shined for them. It’s so sad, isn’t it?

.

So the Valley of Decision is where the Believers and the “make-believers” are separated. Just listen to Malachi… “Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves Him not.” Malachi 3:18.   

.

And so just prior to the winter battle-scene comes these Valley of Decision Constellations. And so this Signs Of Heaven message is a very well-ordered message.

BUT WHERE ARE THE “MULTITUDES”?

.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/8269775@N05But there was another discovery that further added to the confirmation that this truly was the “Valley of Decision” Constellation. While looking at various star-charts online, I noticed that there was a galaxy which appeared to be making its way up the hill from the valley. It appeared to be climbing up the hill that led to the Mountain of Blessing (the other mountain was the “Mount of Cursing”. (See Deuteronomy 28). Can you imagine!?! A galaxy called Andromeda, with perhaps a trillion stars appears like it’s climbing the Mount of Blessing (the mountain to the left in the below sketch). So this pretty much “cinched it”, as being indeed the Valley of Decision Constellation… “that thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.” Deuteronomy 11:29.

.

But the point to this galaxy climbing up this Mount of Blessing is this: the prophecy of Joel says… “Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellationsvalley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:14. So what is the significance of this? Simple! When it says “Multitudes in the Valley of Decision”, we can certainly say that any galaxy such as this Andromeda Galaxy with an estimated trillion or more stars fulfills the requirement of a “multitude”. In other words, this Andromeda Galaxy with its trillion+ stars is a picture of all those who are in the Valley of Decision. And of course, it’s common knowledge that God speaks of stars as representing His people… “And they that be wise shall shine… as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3

“O DESTROYING MOUNTAIN”

Jeremiah 51:25

.

Now I have a little old 4 cylinder truck…without any insurance. So without insurance, I have to ride a bicycle. You see, I have type-2 diabetes. And so in order to force myself to get exercise, I have cancelled my insurance, forcing me to ride my bike all the time. And this forced exercise has helped my diabetes tremendously. 

.

So the other night (on a warm summer’s evening) at about midnight, I rode my bike out about 4 miles or so…past our local airport bright lights. And once past those bright lights I looked up in order to fix this mountain/valley constellation in my mind.

.

But I noticed a third mountain! And it bothered me. It just kind of took the force out of this constellation of the Valley of Decision Constellation. It complicated things! Two mountains and one valley I could understand: Blessings or Cursing! A very simple concept! But now there were three mountains! Hmmm.

.

This third mountain was farther south. This became very confusing. But the next day I began to wonder if this third mountain might be a “counterfeit” of Satan. In other words, this third mountain was placed in the heavens by God tovalley of decision and false mountain give us a heavenly portrait of how Satan tries to confuse the issue of Salvation, by creating “look-alike” gospels and counterfeit lifestyles and ideologies…deceiving the world’s inhabitants into believing that there’s a third alternative. In other words, Satan makes us think that it’s not just a choice between Christ and Satan…between life and death. But maybe we can have a choice “C”, so to speak…which is neither for nor against Jesus. Maybe there’s an alternative lifestyle, allowing us to bypass this “narrow” choice of just Jesus or Satan. Maybe we don’t have to be a servant of God, nor of Satan. Maybe we can just “be our own boss”, as they say. So this is how most of the world (and sadly, the Church too) is deceived…thinking that we can be an “independent agent”. So when I got home, I looked in the Bible to see if there was such a thing as a counterfeit mountain? I have studied the Bible much over the years, and though I’m by no means a Bible scholar, I did remember that there was a mountain of Satan. So, using a concordance, it just took a moment. And here’s what I found…

.

“Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth:”  Jer. 51:25. This “destroying mountain” is speaking of Mystery Babylon. It is Satan’s counterfeit of God’s truth! Whoa! This was really exciting! This was the answer! God has faithfully given us a picture, in very simple terms, just what this world is all about: making the inhabitants of the world believe they can live a life without God. And making church-goers believe they can have Jesus and yet, still pursue the cares and pleasures of the world too.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. ConstellationsConstellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

The above sketch show this amazing constellation group as it appears in fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, this Valley of Decision Constellations appear in mid-summer after midnight. The mountain to the left (AKA Cassiopeia) is the Mount of Blessing (Grace). The middle mountain is the Mount of Cursing (the Law). And the third mountain to the far right is the Destroying Mountain (Babylon). The straight line from the Destroying Mountian to the Dragon is called the Broad Highway to Hell.

THE BROAD WAY TO HELL…

.

So it wasn’t too long, that this idea of a third mountain made me wonder if there might be a line of stars which led over to the Dragon Constellation, which was below and to the north of this third mountain. So studying some star-charts, sure enough, there was indeed a line of stars, which leads right into the Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation. It is a portion of what is commonly known as the Pisces Constellation. And it looked like a highway to Hell, with little stars appearing to descend the slope of this counterfeit mountain. And it pretty much leads downward in a straight line to the Dragon! And so these little stars (can you see the circle of stars in this sketch to the left?) appear as if they are those “Five Foolish Virgins” who being deceived by Satan, take the “Broad Way” that leads to destruction… “…broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat…” Matthew 7:13

.

This sketch to the right picks up on this concept of the Five Foolish Virgins. Here we see these five Foolish Virgins grinding at the mill (the 5th virgin is behind the giant globe which Satan is sitting on). But it is Satan’s mill, and not the Lord’s mill (His Word). These foolish ones are grinding at Satan’s mill (the world)! In the background is a tall cathedral-style door in which various people are sliding down from the Destroying Mountain along that hellish highway, smack-dab into this Hell. But this portion of Hell is not the grave. This portion of Hell is in this world. It is the Hell of spiritual darkness, when the light of the Gospel finally goes out in a church-goers heart.

“THE NARROW WAY & BROAD WAY”

.

Just recently (Winter 2010-2011), there began to appear a very wonderful finale to this whole heavenly Gospel Story. There appeared two exceptionally bright stars on the sickle of the Orion/Reaper Constellation. And there also appeared two bright stars on the wave of water coming from the mouth of the Dragon Constellation. The distance between the two stars on the sickle were about half the distance as the two stars on the wave of water.

.

Also, the Revelation 12 Woman Constellation appears to be going toward these two sets of stars. She seems to be in a quandary as to which door to enter (i.e., which set of stars to enter). But as spring approaches, the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation definitely appears to be veering toward the Narrow Gate Stars (narrow set of stars in Orion’s sickle).

.

All this Wide Gate & Narrow Gate concept is from the Bible parable about the Narrow Way and the Broad Way in which Jesus The Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gatewarns us to enter the strait gate…“For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction.” But Jesus also adds that… “Strait is the gate and narrow is the way that leads to [eternal] life. and few there be that find it.”  Matt.7:13,14

.

And so this makes the perfect and happy ending to this heavenly Gospel Story. The Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (God’s people) finally realizes that the only way that makes sense is the Narrow Way. And now that we are at the end of time, we see that the faithful portion of the Church is going to come to the realization that we must enter life through the Strait Gate. We are now realizing that the so-called Christianity which promotes a broad interpretation of the Bible is actually the Broad Way and will only lead to destruction.

CASTOR AND POLLUX

.

 

Today (9-6-2011) it has just come to my attention while looking at a star-chart, that the Narrow Gate Stars are made of two stars…  Castor and Pollux. This presents an incredible fulfillment of a passage in the Book of Acts, which reads…  “And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign Moon into Blood www.signsofheaven.orgwas Castor and Pollux.” Acts 28:11.

.

I have known for a number of years that this story in Acts concerns the Church through the New Testament era. In other words this story in Acts about Paul and the two ships he sailed on is a prophecy. The first ship finally broke into two halves (Can we see a split down the middle of Christianity today, between the conservative and liberal gospels? Go to “Blood Moon Trilogy” to read about this). Paul and everyone else had to finally abandon ship.

.

But to make a long story short, they boarded a second ship whose sign was Castor and Pollux, which appears to be speaking about these Narrow Gate Stars. In short, this second ship that Paul and the others boarded seems to be referring to God’s ship (God’s true worshippers). God’s ship is His Gospel Ship and the sign of this Gospel Ship is this constellation now revealed to us as the Narrow Way or the Narrow Gate Stars, which are made of simply…two stars...Castor and Pollux.

FLOWER OF THE FIELD

.

"Ark of the Covenant" and "Flower of the Field" Constellations (Springtime)Public Domain-www.signsofheaven.org

 

As of summer, 2012, after being down south, near the Mexican border, I noticed that the Scorpio Constellation (AKA The Flower of the Field) was fully in view. While looking at the lower portion, I noticed that the rounded bottom appeared as a leaf. Needless to say, I was overjoyed, since this made that entire Scorpio Constellation appear as a flower, instead of just the upper portion. The old sketch to the above left shows only tTwo Turtledoves-Flower of the Field- Cross/Scepter Constellationshe upper portion, but the new sketch to the right shows the entire Scorpio Constellation. So here is further proof that God intended this constellation to be a flower and not a scorpion.

.

WHY IS THIS FLOWER

.

POINTING UPWARD?

.

The Flower of the Field Constellation Signs Of Heaven.orgDo you see the long blade of Grass growing from the base of the Flower of the Field? This is made of the two highest stars of the Lupus Constellation, and the two lowest stars of the Libra Constellation. As this sketch shows, the flower appears to be pointing to Arcturus (not shown in this sketch). Arcturus represents Jesus, as He leads His sons on a spiritual journey up a heavenward pathway, as is written… “Canst you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32.

.

As this flower represents the glory of Mankind, then the obvious message is this: even Mankind ultimately points to Jesus, because it withers and falls away. And as humanity considers how fragile life is, then by their sadness and hopelessness and sinfulness, they unwittingly praise the Lord… “Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee: the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain.” Psalm 76:10. So the sinfulness of Mankind praises the The Flower of the Field Constellation Signs Of Heaven.orgLord. So the following Psalm then begins to make sense… “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 150:6. So then, it’s virtually impossible for any creature not to praise the Lord. Romans makes this concept clear… “…our unrighteousness commend(s) the righteousness of God” Romans 3:5

.

For instance, the atheist, as he grows old and sad and hopeless only makes Christianity look that much more appealing to those who are questioning and searching which direction to go in life.

.

And so, just like that Flower of the Field Constellation, we too need to pointing the way to Arcturus (i.e., Jesus).

THE GLITTERING SWORD CONSTELLATION

.

One January night in 2011, I was riding with my brother-in-law back to Klamath Falls, from Redding. It was a good dark night, so I urged him to stop, so I could show him the Wave of Water ConstellatioGlittering Sword Constellationn. And as we were looking up at the stars, I began to wonder if these Winter Constellations were aligned with the Summer Constellations. Now, the Summer Constellations were no longer visible, since it was January. So in the next few days, I began to research this idea. And after some time, I realized that the Winter Constellations appeared as the top portion of a sword, and the Summer Constellations appeared as the lower shaft and tip of a sword. And if you look below the tip of this sword, you will notice that the tip is pointing right down upon the Ark Constellation. This appears to be a great sacrifice, especially when you consider that the Ark also appears like two Turtle-Doves, which were often used as an Old Testament sacrifice.

.

Now most star charts must show the constellations on a curve to compensate for the curvature of the Earth: and it’s not so easy to see this alignment properly. But if you go out in January and February, you can see somewhat more of this phenomenon.

SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN CONSTELLATION

constellation of signs of heaven in upright positionHEThis last year (2012) I decided to go to Wikipedia and take each constellation on this"Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven" www.signsofheaven.org public domain website, and chart them out onto a piece of paper. Upon doing so, I noticed that it appeared somewhat like a Jesus, hanging on a Cross, with his head leaning back, as if he’s in pain.

THE FLOWER OF HEAVEN CONSTELLATION

 

.

Well, this entire story began with the Flower of the Field Constellation. And it looks like it will end with this Flower of Heaven Constellation. The first flower came up out of the Earth. But this second flower is suspended from Heaven. This constellation was revealed to the web host around the beginning of 2013.

THE HOLY-GHOST-RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

Here is the newest revealed constellation (Fall, 2013). It completes and compliments the Goodly Horse in

Holy Ghost Rider (above western horizon)

Holy Ghost Rider (above western horizon)

Battle Constellation. The head and back of this constellation is made of the Constellation, Camelopardalis. The back of his leg is made of various stars in the Cassiopeia Constellation (Epsilon, Chi, plus other minor Cassiopeia stars: phi, theta, upsilon, etc., etc.)

.

But what is the great concept which God is wanting us to see, in giving us this constellation? Well, to put it the most concise language, this Holy-Ghost-Rider

represents the Holy Spirit’s representation of Christ, as He leads the Church into battle, working through God’s people (represented, not only by the Horse, Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellationbut also by the myriad of Milky Way stars, which flow through this Rider.

.

OK, so to understand this constellation is a very complex concept. But also to find this Constellation will take some work, too. But it only makes sense that the Holy Spirit would be represented by such a mysteriously faint constellation, since the Holy Spirit works so imperceptibly in the hearts and lives of Believers.

FIVE WISE VIRGINS

.

A few weeks ago (May, 2014), as I was walking, one night, along a nearby Canal, I noticed a group of stars in a slight oval position right next to the Beautiful 12-star Crown.

Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

Wikipedia Star-Chart – Corona Borealis

 

And these stars were maybe even a little brighter than the Crown. Now because they were even distanced from each other and in such a definite oval pattern, I became somewhat bothered. After all, in my human thinking, I didn’t like that crown to have such tough competition, from this unrecognized group of stars.

.

But a few days later, it came to me that those stars represented the Five Wise Virgins from Matthew 25. And that slight oval pattern represented their gathering around the Glorious Crown, giving the Crown the attention it deserved. In other words, it is only true worshippers of God who highly esteem the crown of victory which awaits those who persevere with Jesus to the very end!

.

Then as I kept considering this new phenomenon, I began to realize that these Five Wise Virgins were gathered at the feet of Serpent on Jesus Heelthe Sign of the Son of Man Constellation, just as Mary Magdalene sat at Jesus feet to hear His Word! And so this realization gave further credence to these stars representing the Five Wise Virgins.

.

But after a few more nights of watching this, I then realized that these five stars might even be the five toes of Sign of the Son of Man Constellation! And so, this meant that the crown represented the heel of that Son of Man, as He hung on the Cross.

.

THE FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS

.

Now as I related this to a friend, he suggested that there might be more to this than I now realized. Well, heSerpent Constellation said this about several hours prior to driving a borrowed car out to the country to examine these things.

.

And sure enough, as I parked in the driveway of the county dump (a very great place to star-watch, with few nearby house lights), I saw that there were a group of stars which were on the opposite side of the crown also in a slight oval pattern. But unlike the wise virgins, these stars were curved away from the crown as if to say that they were ignoring the crown. And likewise they were ignoring the privilege of sitting at the feet of Jesus, as the Five Wise Virgins were!

.

So all this made sense. And as I considered this, I began to notice that these stars, along with more stars appeared likSon Of Man Constellatione a snake, winding away from the crown.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DracoCC.jpg

Draco, Ursa Minor

.

And then, to my utter amazement, I realized that this snake was winding its way around the heel of the Son of Man Constellation! And of course, this reminded me of the curse that was pronounced by God against the serpent in the Garden… “And the LORD God said unto the serpent…thou shalt bruise His heel.” Genesis 3:14 (condensed). So here was a constellation which appeared as a serpent, and was winding its way around the heel of the Son of Man hanging on the Cross!

.

Now if this was not enough, I began to look up on the star charts regarding what stars and constellations these stars happened to be. And to my amazement, the wide-open jaws of this serpent are the very same four stars which the Babylonians saw as Draco, the Dragon (photo right). But the body of Draco are completely different stars, than this SSerpent Points To Valley & Destroying Mtn.erpent Constellation! But the head is the same, only backwards, so that it appears as the wide-open jaws of a snake.

.

But this phenomena wasn’t finished! There was yet another aspect to this! I then began to suspect that these four stars which represented the jaws of this serpent were pointing in two separate directions. And so, I began to draw a line across the night sky, only to discover that one jaw pointed to the Valley of Decision Constellation. And the other jaw pointed to the “O Destroying Mountain Constellation”, in which there was also a group of five stars, likewise representing the Five Foolish Virgins. And so, to further substantiate this, I got a 4 foot long straight-edge, holding it up to the night-sky, and made sure they were pointing in those directions. Because on the star-charts, you cannot see this. But out in the night sky, they definitely point in those two directions!

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

“Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things; that brings out their host by number: He calls them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:26

.

The above verse is a plea from God to look up at the Heavens and behold Who has created these things.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1_vermont_night_stargazing_panorama_2009.jpg

.

In this very interesting world, there are many, many, things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few. But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart. “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23. The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

.

.

.

.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD”

.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars…And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. ” Luke 21:25, 28

.

But having said this, there is one hhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpgobby which the ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize. Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich heavenly rewards.

.

And unlike these people with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded. Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many aspects and hidden meanings to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.Orion Constellation

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper). 7 stars as CrossThese two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Church (7 Stars). And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John). These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

ANOTHER HEAVENLY HOBBY: PRAYER-WALKS

.

Now if you’re fortunate enough to be able to go on nightly walks, and you live in an ahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgrea where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses. Why not combine star-watching with prayer, as you walk! What a great way to draw closer to God! It cannot be over-stressed, just how wonderful it is to walk under the dark canopy of Heaven, while lifting up one’s heart to our Heavenly Father. There is a closeness to God that cannot be described with words! (And even if you cannot safely do this, you can always do such prayer-walks in the daytime, in a safe place, such as a mall, which is every bit as effective, prayer-wise. And for those who are in confinement, one can view these on the Internet, or simply listen to Scripture on audio. Either way, all such may enjoy God’s richest blessings at this very time in which God is pouring out all Heaven’s treasures upon anyone willing to forsake all, and follow Jesus)

THRICE-DAILY PRAYERS

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marines_at_Prayer_by_Alex_Raymond.jpg

Now of course, the Bible commands us to “pray without ceasing“. The Christian is to constantly talk with our Heavenly Father throughout the day. But the Bible also holds up the godly life of Daniel, who, when captive in Babylon, still set aside three times daily, in which he knelt for special prayer. And furthermore the Bible also says… “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:17. Even those who are bed-fast or in a prison cell can begin to imitate Daniel in this way. And if one is fortunate to be able to walk, then this thrice-daily prayer regimen can be combined with three walks daily and even nightly.
