“HAPPILY EVER AFTER”

.

Dragons and dragon-slayers and damsels in distress: these are the things that storybooks are made of! And down through the centuries, there have been no shortage of such intriguing tales. And quite often, those storybooks endehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jost_Haller_-_Saint_George_slaying_the_dragon,_Unterlinden_Museum,_Colmar.jpgd with the words… “And they lived happily ever after”

.

Signs Of Heaven website reveals God’s own version of this same theme. Only difference is, God wrote this dragon-slayer story in the heavens, in the day when He created the heavens and the Earth, as is written… “although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” Hebrews 4:3. And He wrote it before Mankind had even been created, much less written such similar tales!

.

But unlike the make-believe children’s tales written by mortal men, this heavenly story is the only story ever told, which speaks the truth when it ends with… “And they lived happily ever after” (see Revelation 21:4). Because, in reality, the words, “ever after” present a big, big problem! Because the fact is, every earthly story ultimately ends with the death of all its participants, both good and bad, alike. But this heavenly story not only ends with “happily ever after”, but is a true story as well; and not just a fairy-tale!

READ ON AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER

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

.

This article will show from Scripture about this concept of Satan being called “The Dragon”. It will also show that Scripture speaks of this constellation directly, and also indirectly…between the lines.

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

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THIS DRAGON IS NOT DRACO!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DracoCC.jpg

.

First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco, AKA Ursa Minor).

.

This Revelation 12 Dragon from Signs Of Heaven, has not been previously recognized. But you will discover that it is a very intricate and complex constellation, once you are comfortable locating it (picture below, left).

Revelation 12 Dragon w/textTHE DRAGON OF REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION. The star-charts below (below, right) are from Wikipedia and are combined into one chart to show these three constellations, which the editor has sketched over with these three constellations, as they appear when in the west. Hopefully, this will be an assist in locating these constellations in the night-sky.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATION…

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .

.

.

.

.

.

.

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hourDragon of Revelation 12 Constellations, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water, but are not part of the Auriga Constellation.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.

VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION

.

 

But wait just a minute! Before we explore the Winter Constellation group, there is a very awesome and fearful Valley of Decision Constellationconstellation group. There is a constellation group which can be seen best in May through the fall (in May, it arises in the pre-dawn hours, gradually appearing earlier each night as summer progresses!). It is called the “Valley of Decision” Constellation Group. It speaks of the valley in which every person who comes into the world must walk, at one time or another in his or her life, as is written… “[Jesus] was the true Light, which lights every man that cometh into the world.” John 1:9 Read this article for sure! This constellation is exactly between the ending of the Summer Constellations and the beginning of the Winter Constellations.

.

THIRD MOUNTAIN: BABYLON

.

But there is a third mountain in this constellation group. It is Satan’s Destroying Mountain…Babylon!

.

Satan makes the world believe that there’s an alternative lifestyle to the Gospel; a “choice C”. In other words, Satan has cleverly designed the societies of this world, to make it seem that it’s not necessary to choose betweendestroying mountain-fixed-2011-10-05 Christ or Satan. There’s a third choice, or so Satan would have us to believe! One needs only to choose this “alternative” mountain (mountain on far right in this sketch). That is, this present world offers so many lifestyles, both secular and religious, which seem rather harmless…even good!

.

But this is a very complicated subject which needs to be studied. To read more about this constellation group, or for locating instructions, you can click the following link… “Mystery Babylon, O Destroying Mountain Constellation” or you can also read… “Vanity Fair” & The False Prophet”

“CORDS OF VANITY

.

“Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18 

.

 

Look at the slope of this third mountain (Babylon Mtn.), and notice that it goes straight dValley of Decision Constellation Groupown to the Dragon Constellation. This slope belongs to the constellation commonly called Pisces“. Doesn’t it almost look like the Dragon is towing this Mountain? It almost looks like the Dragon is transporting this “False Mountain” from the south… from Hell! And he has pulled it northward…next to these other two mountains. This would almost seem like a comical idea…if it weren’t for the destruction and death and woe caused by Satan for many-a-millennium. Just listen to this verse…

“Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18.

.

SATAN’S CARTROPE

.

So God has created this constellation group to picture for us this fearful concept of Satan pulling this mountain of sin, called Babylon: and it http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGcomes from the south: the south symbolizing the lowest Hell! And Satan and his followers work hard to create this world of darkness and deceit, pulling it as by cords of vanity and sin. And this Mountain of Babylon represents Satan’s kingdom: the kingdoms of this world, over which he rules and reigns. And though Satan tries hard to keep a very low-profile, one can look in any direction and see the sin and the results of sin, which he has deluged upon this unsuspecting world (“And we know that we are of God, and the WHOLE WORLD lieth in wickedness.” 1st John 5:19).

BROAD HIGHWAY TO HELL

.

staples

But there is a second meaning, a double-entendre, to this long line of stars from this Destroying Mountain down to the Dragon Constellation? It would remind one of a highway. But what kind of highway? Need there be any further explanation? They say that “a picture paints a thousand words”. Well this picture that God

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flickr_-_%E2%80%A6trialsanderrors_-_The_Roads_to_Heaven_and_Hell,_religious_tract,_ca._1896.jpg

 

has placed in the night sky paints a very poignant portrait indeed! This line of stars represents that “Broad Way that leads to destruction”. Just listen to Matthew’s Gospel… “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13, 14. Now this constellation of the broad way to Hell, must be seen under very good star-gazing conditions, as Pisces is not a very bright constellation, which this highway is comprised of some of Pisces stars.

THUMBNAIL OVERVIEW…

.

OF WINTER CONSTELLATIONS…

.

(IN THE EASTERN SKY)

.

The Winter Constellation Group is all about Christian warfare! And it is about fleeing from the Revelation 12 Dragon. And it is about fleeing to the Mountain of God! And this group is all about the sterner qualities of the Christian life. This Dragon starts out the winter in the eastern skies in a power position. He is atop Orion. Both Orion and his Horse are falling backward, in apparent defeat.

In the East - Fall & Winter

In the East – Fall & Winter

This reminds one of an Old Testament prophecy… “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” Genesis 49:17. Dan of course, in this passage, would represent that old serpent, Satan and his minions. The horse and rider in this passage speak of Orion and this Goodly Horse Constellation.

.

 As you can see in this sketch, the Revelation 12 Woman is being pursued by the Dragon’s wave of water, which is being spewed directly in the pathway of the Woman.

.

This sketch is when these constellations first appear in the eastern horizon, in late fall. As winter progresses, the tables begin to turn. As this constellation group slowly inches westward each night, both Orion and his Horse steadily gain the advantage. The Woman eventually appears to be leaning forward, as if she is beginning to take flight. By winter these constellations move farther and farther westward each night, so that you can see them move completely from east to west though the night.

.

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.

.

.

.

.

.

IN THE WESTERN SKIES

.

As just stated, by winter this group of 4 constellations move entirely across the night-sky, from east to west winter fourthrough the night. First these 4 constellations can be seen in the east, with the Dragon in a victorious position, at the beginning of night. But by night’s end, both Orion and his Horse are now atop the Dragon, in the western skies, now appearing victorious over the Dragon. The Woman is now in full flight. The three warriors now begin to dip below the western horizon. The Horse is stomping on the Dragon’s tail, as this Horse gazes intently at the tip of the Dragon’s tail (the Pleiades).

.

Orion appears to have his sword ready to decapitate the Dragon’s head, which reminds us of the curse pronounced on the serpent in the Garden of Eden, that Christ would eventually “Bruise thy (Satan’s) head”.

.

(LATE WINTER WESTERN HORIZON FOUR CONSTELLATIONS…The sketch to the right is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the winter above the western horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major. Orion is the soldier at the bottom. The Dragon’s mouth is The Hyades Cluster and his tail is Pleiades. The Horse’s head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.)

REVELATION 12

.

& THE GREAT RED DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3

.

This above verse speaks of a great RED dragon in heaven. So why is this constellation not made oOrion Constellationf all red stars? Yes, God could have also made all the constellations on this website so obvious that any and everybody could easily spot them. But God did not choose to do that. After all, neither did God choose to make the Bible so plain, that all the mysteries were so easily seen, that the whole world would fall to our knees in surrender to its truths. But God did not choose to do that either. The answer to this perplexing question is found in Proverbs 25. Listen… “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2. God has elected us to be priests and kings… “And [Christ] hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father;” Revelation 1:6. And as kings, we are to search out the mysteries of the Bible, which God has hidden within its pages.

.

But though we are kings, God still wants us to come to Him as little children. He wants us to come to Him by faith. In other words, God presents enough truth for Believers to believe, and enough doubts for doubters to doubt.

.

.

.

.

.

DRAGON’S RED TOOTH

.

But as to the dilemma of this great red dragon: the answer lies in the front lower tooth. It is a great red star. And it is about the same redness as Orion’s right shoulder (see sketch right). And Orion’s red right shoulder represents those who have been martyred for their faith, over the past two thousand years.

.

High-Priest-www_thebiblerevival_com-public-domainRemember how the high priest wore two onyx stones on his shoulders, each stone representing 6 tribes of Israel, (picture to left)? Well, Orion’s two stars on his shoulders, no doubt represent this.

.

So this phenomenon in the heavens gives us the answer as to just why the Bible describes Satan as a great RED dragon: Satan is a murderer, and though he has murdered many, his chief objects of hatred are those Christians whom he has martyred through the centuries; hence the red tooth, and the red star on the right shoulder of Orion.

WIDE & NARROW GATES STARS

.

Now at the end of this story, we begin to see a very strange phenomenon! The two brightest stars of the Dragon’s wave, and the two brightest stars of Orion’s sickle begin to shine brighter than ever. The two bright stars of Orion’s sickle are about half the width of the two bright stars of the Dragon’s wave of water. It begins to be seen that these two sets of bright twin stars are symbolic of the parable of the Narrow Gate and the Wide Gate. Orion’s sickle’s twin stars make up the Narrow Gate, and the Dragon’s twin stars make up the Wide Gate. The Narrow Gate symbolizes that the Christian must forsake all (in his heart) if he or she is to win that glorious Prize. Listen to the words of Jesus… 

.

“…whosoever…forsakes not all that he hath, he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:34.

.

The Wide Gate of Satan symbolizes the spurious religion that offers both Christ plus the world too! It is what the Dragon’s wave of water is all aboRevelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Wayut. This is the big lie of the False Prophet, Satan. “You can have Jesus, but you can also pursue the things of this world as well”, says this Master-Deceiver, Satan!

REVELATION 12 WOMAN

.

Now that Orion and his trusty steed are soundly defeating the Dragon, when in the western sky, thThe Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gateis battle of the ages is almost over. But there is one decision that is left to be made. It involves the Woman of Revelation 12. She is now fully flying. But she is now heading in the direction of both the wave of water from the Dragon’s mouth, and also toward’s Orion’s sickle. What in the world is she doing?! Is she heading straight for destruction: directly into the Dragon’s wave of water? This is exactly what the Dragon has wanted to happen! Is the Dragon going to carry her away in his flood of evil? 

.

.

.

But wait! Just a minute! It seems that we have an upset! This Woman, at night’s end, begins to appear to veer toward the Narrow Gate of Orion!  

.

.

.

.

.

“happily ever after”

.

This is the most amazing story-book endings in all of eternity! The Woman, when finally in the west, now appears to swerve towards the two narrow stars known as the Narrow Gate! Yes she’s definitely swerving in that direction! Earlier in the winter when this Heavenly Foursome was in the eastern sky, it wasn’t so clear just which gate she would enter. But now at the last, she iThe Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gates clearly heading towards the Narrow Gate! Yes this Woman of Revelation 12 is going to go into the Narrow Gate making Orion’s victory complete and very sweet indeed!

.

And so ends this story written in the heavens ends with the words“And they lived happily ever after”. And isn’t it true that this is the only story ever written that speaks the truth, when it says“And they lived happily ever after”. This is because every other story written ultimately ends with death. But this story ends with life everlasting.

.

GOSPEL WRITTEN IN THE SUN, MOON, STARS

.

OK, so this is the Winter Tale in a very brief overview. It is the Gospel story written in the heavens! And together with the Summer & Fall Constellations, it makes a completed story.

.

But what about the Dragon? Let’s study about what Scripture has to say about the Dragon, and what it has to say about this Dragon Constellation… 

.

“REVELATION 12 WOMAN & THE NARROW GATE” IN WINTER: This above sketch is seen this way when the Woman has fully engaged in her flying position. This sketch is how this constellation group appears as you lie on the ground with your head to the west and feet toward the east. The two stars on the Narrow Gate are the two bright stars, Castor and Pollux, which comprise part of Orion The Reaper’s Sickle. The two stars on the Wide gate are the two brightest stars on the Dragon’s Wave of Water.

THE PLEIADES

.

pleiades_gendler-e1358291561622

“And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” Revelation 12:3,4.

.

Here is a fantastic fulfillment of this prophecy. If you can find the mouth of this Dragon right next to Orion (mouth is commonly known as the Hyades Constellation), and then go a little farther, you will see the star-cluster known as The Pleiades. This is the tip of the Dragon’s tail. Pleiades amazingly is in the shape of the tip of a lion’s tail. And this phenomenon presents the very same concept as does this above verse. Pleiades represents all those who have been taken captive by Satan. It represents the one-third which have been cast from Heaven, down to the eThe Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlotsarth. “And his (the Dragon) tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:” Rev. 12:4

.

PLEIADES IS ACTUALLY A CONSTELLATION

.

It has been recently revealed (January, 2013) that the Pleiades Cluster is actually a constellation, depicting the Harlot of Revelation. This is the woman who rides the Antichrist Beast, spoken of in Revelation Chapter 17 (sketch on left). In this same chapter, she has a name written on her forehead, “Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots”. She represents the apostate church, spoken of in Revelation, Chapter 18.

.The Pleiades: The Captive Angel of Babylon

But in Revelation 18, it is revealed that God still has a people in Babylon. Just listen… “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen….And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. ” Rev. 18 2, 4. So in the last days, God is calling His true-worshippers to come out of the apostate churches. Of course, this is all spoken of in metaphoric language. And the sketch to the right depicts God’s people who have been held captives in Babylon (the fallen apostate churches), and at last, called to come out.

.

Now this is a time-consuming subject. And when you get ready to explore this subject, just go to the article, Who Does The Pleiades Represent?

 WAR IN HEAVEN…

.

“…there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon…and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

(Notice in these composite star-charts, that Michael (Orion) and his Horse are both fighting against the Dragon. This is a picture of Christ and His army, the Church. For more information regarding the Goodly Horse Constellation, just click the following link… “The Goodly Horse”)

.

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels… with him…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accwinter fourused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:9,10. This passage which gives a brief mention of the ancient history of the Dragon, and how he and his fellow angels were cast out of Heaven so long ago. And the stars which comprise this Dragon, represent those angels which lost their first estate.

.

Woe to the inhabiters of the earth … for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath…and he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.” Revelation 12:12, 13

.

.

.

.

.

WOMAN WITH WINGS AS EAGLE…

.Revelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

” …to the woman were given wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into her place where she is nourished for a time from the face of the serpent.” Revelation 12:14. Notice in the sketch, that this Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation has two wings as an eagle. This is an incredible fulfillment of Revelation 12:14… “to the woman were given wings of a great eagle.”

.

.

.

.

.

WAVE OF WATER

.

And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman that he might cause her to be carried awayRevelation 12 Dragon w/text of the flood.” Revelation 12:15. This constellation is of a woman running from the Dragon as he spews a wave of water after her is nothing short of amazing!

.

For details on this phenomenon, just go to “Flood Waters of Satan” article.  

.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with…her seed which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Revelation 12:17. Satan has never been too worried about worldly Christians. He already has the worldly ones just where he wants them. It is those who desire to serve God with all their heart; these are the ones whom woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.orgSatan is at war with. And this Woman of Revelation 12 represents all those who are fleeing from sin and Satan. She symbolizes those who have forsaken this world of sin, and are striving to become Christ-like.

OTHER BIBLE PASSAGES 

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12 

.

This Dragon Constellation does not have 7 heads and 10 horns and 7 crowns, as this above verse speaks of. But the wave of wateDragon of Revelation 12 Constellationr coming out of the Dragon’s mouth has these numbers, 7 and 10, according to the brightness of the stars which comprise the wave of water. That is, this wave of water has 10 basic stars (#1 thru #10). But the main body is comprised of 7 stars, leaving three lesser stars at the tip of the wave (#’s 8, 9, 10). So we have a 7/3 division in the star-count on this wave of water. You can somewhat see this in the sketch to the right. Just notice that the main body of this wave has 7 stars (#1 thru #7). But the very tip of the curl has 3 little stars (#’s 8, 9, 10). (there are actually 7 more very faint stars in a long string, just under the curl as well, stars: a, b, c, d, e, f, g, which brings the total number of stars to 17.)

.

So God has created this wave of water to give us much insight into just what those heads and horns and crowns all represent on the Revelation 13 Beast.

.

For details on this phenomenon of the wave, just go to “Flood Waters of Satan” article.

.

OTHER VERSES 

.

” Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD… that has…wounded the dragon?” Isaiah 51:9. This of course is a reference to Christ, “the arm of the Lord”, who came to this world to defeat Satan.

.

“By His (God’s) Spirit He has garnished the heavens; His hand has formed the crooked serpent.” Job 26:13

This verse seems to have a special fulfillment, as we see this amazing constellation of the Dragon. In other words, the Lord is saying here that by His Spirit He has “garnished the heavens”. And also right here He says “His hand has formed the crooked serpent” (constellation). Of course there are spiritual implications to this verse as well. Nevertheless, this passage from Job appears to be making a special veiled reference to this incredible constellation. And the Book of Job makes references to other biblical constellations as well.

.

“THE DRAGON SHALL YOU

.

TRAMPLE UNDER FEET”

Ps. 91:13…

.

Holy-Ghost-Rider in the Western night-sky“You shall tread upon the lion and adder… and the dragon shall you trample under feet. ” Psalm 91:13

.

This trampling of the dragon by God’s people is wonderfully illustrated by this incredible Winter Constellation group. Look at this Horse Constellation trampling on the tail of the Dragon Constellation. This is simply incredible!

For more details on the Glorious Horse Constellation, just click here.

.

GLORIOUS HORSE CONSTELLATION … This above sketch is how this Horse appears when you are seeing him in the western half of the sky. He is a little to the north. Of course the farther south you are, the further north he appears. He can be seen in just about every latitude, except, perhaps, the furthermost latitudes.

.

.

.

.

.

CONSTELLATIONS SPOKEN OF IN JUDGES…

.

winter four constellations” They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.” Judges 5:20

.

This verse from Judges seems to have a very dramatic fulfillment in this Winter Constellation group. Look at this sketch! You see both Orion and the Glorious Horse fighting against the Dragon. So this above verse (“They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.”) seems to be a veiled reference to this constellation group.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THESE THREE CONSTELLATIONS

.

REFERRED TO IN GENESIS…

.

“Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” Genesis 49:17

.

As stated earlier, this verse above, appears to be a veiled reference to the Dragon (Satan), Orion (Christ), and the Horse (God’s Church) Constellations. This is brought out by this Winter Constellation group. Of course, star chart orion & dragonDan being compared to a serpent would obviously represent Satan; or at least Dan represents his people. The rider here would refer to Christ. The Horse referred to here, being Christ’s people in battle.

.

DRAGON ALSO A SERPENT

.

The question here might be, “Are we talking about a dragon or are we talking about a serpent?” Let’s allow Scripture to speak… “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,” Revelation 12:9. So here we find Scripture stating that the Dragon is also the serpent, who is also the Devil and Satan. 

.

GENESIS 49:17 WRITTEN IN THE STARS

.

So here in this sketch to the above left, we see this verse from Genesis fulfilled in the night Heaven. “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” So as we examine this sketch we see both Orion and his horse falling backwards in the eastern skies at the beginning of winter. And this likewise explains why this Horse has no rider. Because as it states in Genesis, this serpent “bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” and Orion defintely appears in the east, as if he has fallen backwards. 

.

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in WestAN UNFOLDING STORY IN THE HEAVENS… So now we see how God blends Revelation 12 with Genesis 49, when He created this constellation group.

WINTER REPRESENTS “TIME OF TROUBLE”… Of course this presents a wonderful concept about winter; winter being a spiritual picture of the time of trouble spoken of in Scripture… “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matt. 24:20, 21. So this fleeing Woman is a picture of what Matthew 24: 20, 21 is all about. And you can read the various Signs Of Heaven articles about this fleeing Woman, beginning with“The Revelation 12 Woman Flees Into The Wilderness”.

OUR LONG NIGHT OF WRESTLING

.

But you don’t need to wait till the end of winter to see this constellation group rotate. If you will simply wait for the beginning of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jacob_Wrestling_with_the_Angel.jpgwinter when this constellation group fully appears in the eastern horizon at the beginning of night then all you have to do is watch it as it travels from east to west through the night. Then you can see this entire battle scene in one night. And of course, this is also biblical, because night also represents the time of trouble in the Bible. Remember Jacob’s night of trouble, when he wrestled with the angel of the Lord? Jacob wrestled until the dawning of the day; and at the dawning of the day, God pronounced His blessing upon Jacob, re-naming him “Israel”. Well, the Bible calls the last final battle of God’s people,  “The time of Jacob’s trouble”. Listen…

YOU CAN WRESTLE TO SEE THIS

.Winter Constellations in West

” Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.”  Jer. 30:7. So all you have to do to see this winter battle scene in the night sky, is to do your own wrestling in order to stay awake all night long. Of course, you can also just wake up several times during the night and go outside to see how it has progressed from east to west. But this is assuming you have decent star-gazing quality. But if you don’t, you might go out camping, weather permitting. This constellation can be seen in mid summer in the pre-dawn hours.

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.
