Over twenty years had now passed since first locating Orion, in about 1988. It was now 2008. And along with Orion, there was this Cross Constellation. Then there were those two birds and the crown constellations. But what did it all mean? And oh yes, the Big Dipper too, with its 7 stars.

.

As I said, I had fallen back into the world. For some reason, my Christianity had become anemic and thin. My prayer life…my Bible study had all but evaporated. I had become worldly and vain. I wanted to be spiritual…but I just couldn’t. I was like the “man in the iron cage”, from Bunyan’s, Pilgrim’s Progress! I was helpless to free myself!

.

I began to hang out with unbelievers. I was now cast out…into outer darkness…with the hypocrites (see Matthew 8:30, 22:13 & 25:30). I became critical of people. I joked…I mocked…I became as vulgar as any heathen!

.

At times, I found just barely enough strength to pray for help. And this went on for years. I was caught in Satan’s web of sin!

BRINGING ME BACK

.

Then, after about 7 years of this apostasy, the Lord had brought me back into the fold. And though I had to climb back up to the place from where I fell years earlier, nevertheless, God had graciously given me another chance. I was freed from my spiritual darkness.

I could truly say… “out of the belly of Hell cried I, and Thou heardest my voice.” Jonah 2:2.

.

But it’s been a slow and very painful climb back up Heavenly Zion. And it’s now been many years of trying to get back to where I was, before my apostasy. My health has greatly suffered now, drawing me close to the grave. My wife has passed on, and I lost valuable time from Bible study. I wouldn’t recommend  apostasy to anyone. The cost is way too high, and it’s a miserable existence! 

.

But as I said, the Lord brought me back. And after 7 years of apostasy and maybe 13 years of clawing my way back to my former status, the Lord, once again began revealing more Signs In Heaven. All of a sudden, in 2008, more constellations began to appear…

THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON (2008)…

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

While walking one night, it became apparent that the Pleiades was actually the tip of the Dragon’s tail. It now appeared that the body and tail of the Dragon wrapped around in an oval shape, as this drawing shows. It then became noticeable that the Dragon had a body and legs much like a crocodile or alligator.

NOT LIKE DRACO!

.

This Revelation Dragon was not at all like the dragon commonly known as Draco. No, this God-created dragon was not merely a string of stars. This dragon had a three-dimensional body! It had teeth! It had legs! It had a tail-tassel like a lion! There were aspects about it which I began to understand: aspects that revealed Bible truths!

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/textOh yes, you can find many imaginative three-dimensional drawings of Draco. But with this Revelation 12 Dragon, you could merely “connect the dots”, so to speak, and behold: a three-dimensional dragon!

.

And as I began to see how this constellation connected with the other God-created constellations, I began to understand just what a truly amazing creation of God it was!

GOODLY HORSE IN BATTLE  (2008)…

.

. 

(This constellation can only be easily seen when in the western sky, as seen above, and only in winter through early spring)Magnificent White Horse

.

One night, in winter (2008), a very amazing constellation appeared. A Horse Constellation. I remember seeing it for the first time. I was walking down Summers Lane, and I looked up into the west and there it was! It only took an instant to recognize it. It was high above the western horizon in the night sky!

.

This great horse has one front leg stepping on the tail of the Dragon. He also has a star http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap060109.htmlfor his left eye. His head is very big, compared to the rest of his body (however, this sketch does not show this aspect). The horse seems to be intently focusing his gaze on the tip of the Dragon’s tail (the Pleiades Constellation).

.

Because this horse was very focused on the Pleiades, along with what the Bible states about Pleiades, it seems that the Pleiades is a picture of God’s host, who have been taken captive by the Dragon, Satan. Listen to Revelation…

.

“And his (the dragon’s) tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:” Revelation 12:4.

.

The Horse appears to be a picture of God’s army. The Bible refers to a horse as symbolizing an army. So it was immediately recognizable that this constellation symbolizes God’s host (army)…

“for the LORD of hosts hath visited His flock the house of Judah, and has made them as HIS GOODLY (GLORIOUS) HORSE IN THE BATTLE…And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight, because the LORD is with them…” Zechariah 10:3,5.

.

Notice that this Zechariah passage speaks of “treading down the enemies as mire in the streets”. This seems to be what the Goodly Horse is doing, as seen in the above sketch. And the Book of Revelation also frequently mentions Christ as having a “white horse” (Revelation Ch. 19:11,19,21).

LOOSING THE BANDS OF ORION

probably about 2008Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

.

Orion in bad position (early winter in the east)

.

At some point in time, the significance of the position of Orion with this Dragon became clear. At the beginning of winter, Orion appeared below the Dragon, as if the Dragon was victorious over Orion. But through the night (and progressively through the winter), Orion begins to appear more and more to be on top of the Dragon. This would seem to indicate that Orion is finally victorious over the Dragon at the end.

ORION IN VICTORIOUS POSITION IN WEST IN LATE WINTER

.Latter Winter Constellations Darker Aug 26, 2011

 

And so, Orion the Soldier became a symbol of what every Christian is commanded to do…to put on the ‘Armor of God’.

.

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day…having your loins girt about with truth, and…the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the…gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith…And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is Winter Bible Constellations Star Chartthe word of God:” Ephesians 6:13-17. 

.

If one studies this constellation carefully in the light of this passage from Ephesians, there can be seen the various similarities, such as Orion’s belt which coincides with the words… “having your loins girt about with truth”.

.

And of course, Orion obviously is holding a sword in his right hand and a shield in his left. Just a coincidence? Hardly!

THE SEVEN STARS (2008)…

.

The 7 Stars (or ‘Big Dipper’) began to tell a much bigger story.  As stated earlier on this page, they seemed to go together with the verses relating to the 7 angels with 7 bowls of God’s wrath found in Revelation 15 & 16. And, as already stated earlier, when the Big Dipper progresses through the year, it looks like a bowl being turned upside down upon the earth. So too, the 7 angels pour the contents of their bowls upon the earth, symbolizing God’s wrath being poured out upon the inhabitants of earth on Judgment Day…

.

Listen… And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” Revelation 15:1

.

But now all of a sudden, a much bigger picture appeared. When this Big Dipper Constellation is just beginning to pour out its contents upon the Ea7 stars as Crossrth, it begins to look like a giant spectacular Cross! Could this be the essence of God’s wrath upon the inhabitants of the Earth? That is, when the Church (God’s faithful few) really exalts the Cross of Christ, the world will truly see Jesus in us. This seems to be the 7th bowl of God’s wrath. The Cross exalted in the lives of the Believers. And unlike the constellations which the ancients saw, God’s Cross is three-dimensional, as this sketch shows.

.

In the warmer months the bowl is upright. In the winter, the bowl appears to be pouring out and also appears as a three-dimensional cross on a hill.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

MORE TO THIS STORY

.

But there is more to this story. This marvelous 7 Star Constellation also seemed to align with Revelation ch. 1-3, the 7 churches of Asia (which represent the entire New Testament Church). And likewise, if this were true, then it would make sense that these 7 stars would also represent the 7 angels with seven trumpets found also in Revelation.

.

So then, we could say that this 7 star constellation represents the 7 Stars in Jesus right hand, which represent the 7 Churches of Asia. But also represents the 7 Angels, with 7 Trumpets, and the 7 Angels, with 7 Bowls of God’s Wrath. And last, but not least, this represents “the Sons” who Arcturus guides in the Book of Job… “canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job  38:32

WAVE OF WATER FROM DRAGON’S MOUTH  (2008)…

.

.

One night as I was, no doubt, taking my usual walk along Summers Lane with my faithful mutt, ‘Sir Bentley’, there appeared what looked like a wave of water coming out of the Dragon’s mouth.

Revekation 12 Dragon

.

Well, this only reminded me of Revelation 12… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15.

.

Of course, in Scripture this wave of water represents all the false doctrines that Satan causes Mankind to be deluded with.

.

Now this wave of water was really amazing! After all, this Dragon Constellation which I now knew had a body, was amazing enough. But this wave of water really looked like a wave of water. It almost looked like you could ride a surf board on its curl!

.

This Dragon Constellation can be seen beginning in August in the east in the pre-dawn hours.

.

.

.

.

.

WHEN I FIRST SAW THE WOMAN…

.

Now I figured that because the book of Revelation Chapter 12 speaks about Orion and also about this Dragon, then there has to be a Woman Constellation also. But I had never seen such a constellatiEarly Winter Bible Constellations- darkeron…yet!

.

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

.

So one night, some weeks later, as I was walking “Ol’ Bent” (Sir Bentley was his proper name) down Summers Lane, I stopped at a certain corner with an empty field and few houses, and no street light. It was the same corner I usually stopped at, because of the absence of house lights, etc.. And over time, I discovered, that if I stood behind a certain large shrub, I could shield myself from the few bright house lights, which otherwise would somewhat obscure the starry sky.Revelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

.

Now on this dark and starry night, I just gazed up in amazement at this wave of water spewing from the Dragon’s mouth. Then the thought came into my mind, that if this is the Dragon from Revelation 12, then perhaps this wave of water is going to the pathway of some woman-like constellation. After all, it plainly states in Revelation 12…

.

Listen… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood AFTER THE WOMAN, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.”

.

So I followed the direction of this wave of water northward. And lo and behold, I instantly saw a constellation which looked like a running woman…with her arms raised above her head. And her legs appeared to be furiously running. This was the The Big Dipper Constellation, plus the other stars which comprise Ursa Major.

woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.org.

It first appeared that she was waving her arms in the air like one might see a lot of people do today. You know… people lifting up ‘holy hands’, as it says in the Bible.  But after some days of viewing it, it became apparent that her arms were actually eagle wings, like it says in Revelation Ch. 12… Now you can’t readily see her arms as wings. But Revelation 12 speaks of her as having wings. So her arms must be wings since this entire constellation group is from Revelation Chapter 12. But if you look on a very dark night, or perhaps on a good star-chart, these very faint stars around the outer-edges of her wings will be seen.

.

All three pictures can be seen in winter.

.

.

WOMAN IN LABOR PAINS

.

.

But as I began to follow this amazing constellation, I found out that she was much more complex than I originally thought. This is because she goes in a cyclical pattern through the year. This constellation is actually an optical illusion; having two very different women in the very same constellation. Let me explain…woman of Revelation 12 In Travail-www.signsofheaven.org

.

In the summertime, this woman constellation appears as a headless woman in labor pains. Her left arm is stretched out as if she is suffering intensely. And in her womb area, is a small single star.

.

She never was noticeable before, probably because she was made partly of the The Big Dipper. But now it appeared like a headless woman giving birth to a single star, which single star seemed to symbolize Christ. And this seemed to go along with Revelation Chapter 12… “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” Revelation 12:2.

.

.

WOMAN FLEES TO THE WILDERNESS

.

.

But as I said, in the winter months, this constellation flips entirely around and she appears as a running (fleeing) woman. And what were her arms in summer, now becomes her legs in winter. And what were her legs in summer, now become her arms in winter. And that single star in her womb area, now becomes her head inRevelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings winter, which fulfills the Bible concept which states that “And He (Christ) is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead;” Colossians 1:18.

.

And so this single star, which in summer represented the Christ-child in her womb are, now represents Christ, as the head of the woman, who represents the Church. Very remarkable!

.

Now if you find this Woman of Revelation 12 (Flees to the Wilderness) (And with a little faith, desire, and imagination supplied  by God’s Spirit) you will notice that she is running very fast. It’s almost comical to see her legs flying furiously. But it’s not so funny when you consider that she is fleeing from the Dragon Constellation, who is spewing water out of his mouth to swallow her up in a flood. And the message from the Lord here is that the Church really needs to flee, and do it quickly!

woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.org.

“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness…” Revelation 12:14.

.

But there were other verses in the Bible that spoke of eagle wings… “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 )

.

This constellation is the same constellation as woman in childbirth. She circles in oval pattern in northern sky throughout the year.

The above two sketches can be seen in winter in the north

WOMAN CASTING PRECIOUS GOSPEL SEED…

.

.

WALKING AND PRAYING…

As I said, I began to go for regular walks each night and morning. For one thing, my dog needed the exercise. But it was also a great time to pray. And since I’m not much of a sleeper, this was somethinRevelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wingsg beneficial I could do when not sleeping. Walk and pray! Physical and spiritual exercise! Definitely a “win-win” situation! And quite often, my prayers were very fervent and heart-felt. And I have a problem with getting down on my knees for long periods. So to simply walk and pray for 30 to 60 minutes is a lot easier for me. Not to mention, I could look at the stars…sometimes when they were visible.

.

It began to appear, about December and onward through winter, that the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation seemed to be casting seed as she fled to the wilderness. It appeared like seed coming from her left hand (stars). And this made sense. Are not Christians supposed to be spreading the precious seed of the Gospel, wherever we go?…

.

(“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that  goes forth and weeps, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5,6 ) (Note: the head of this woman is made of a single star, symbolizing Christ who is the head of His body, the Church).

.

.

THE ALTAR & SMOKE RISING…

.

.

But then, later in winter, appeared what looked like an altar behind the woman. And what first looked like precious Gospel seed, now appeared like smoke rising up to the woman from the altar (This altar and the smoking rising, is actually made of Leo Minor and Leo Major).

.

In other words, the woman began to look as though she was an offering rising up from the altar of God. This made sense too. After all the Bible says a number of times, that we are to offer ourselves as an offering to God… “…present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1

.

“THE WHORE OF REVELATION”

.

.

Having brought up the subject of this Woman of Revelation 12 ConsThe Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlotstellation, seems to necessitate mentioning the Great Whore of Revelation. There doesn’t appear to be any constellations along this line. But you can click on the above link for a page devoted to this topic. Together with the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation, these two ideas make up a huge portion of the Bible.

.

ATTENTION: As of January, 2013, it appears that the Pleiades Cluster is actually a constellation of  the Harlot of Revelation. Here is a rough sketchhttp://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap060109.html of this constellation. Notice that the cup of wine is a red star, which would speak of the red color of grape wine. And notice she is riding the 7 headed Beast.

.

You can read all about her at this link… “The Pleiades: The Captive Angel & Mystery Harlot Constellation”

 THE CROSS OF ORION

(about 2008 or 2009)

.

Now several years ago, it began to appear that Orion had an optical illusion with it. that is, it could be seen as a picture of the cross on Mt. Calvary. As Orion reaches mid-point in the sky, it is not very difficult to visualize a cross instead of a soldier.

ORION THE REAPER

.

.

Just prior to ArmaggedonThis last winter (2009-2010), something very marvelous appeared concerning the Orion Constellation. You have read earlier in this article that Orion not only appears to have a sword and shield. But he also looks as if he is shooting a bow at the dragon. This technique is known as a double-entendre (or double-meaning). But there is a triple-entendre in the Orion Constellation (or quadruple if you count the Cross of Orion). It is very easy to see Orion holding a sickle in his right hand. This reminds us Revelation 14…

.Orion The Reaper Sept 5, 2011 darker

“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.  And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.  And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.” Revelation 14:14,15

.

A few weeks ago (November, 2010), there appeared to be a fulfillment about the white cloud spoken of  in the above verse of Revelation 14:14. If you look at Orion on a very dark night (hopefully out in the country, you might be able to see a cloud on Orion’s back-side. That cloud is what we call the ‘Milky Way’). So here’s the picture: Orion now has a sickle. The white cloud above the back of his head is actually clouds of stars! Just like it says in the above verse from Revelation 14:14,15.  Go out in the country and see this for yourself!

.

The bottom-left sketch is the same constellation in mid-winter in mid-sky.

.

.

.

ORION THE ARCHER

.

.

A friend suggested that Orion also appears to be shooting a bow and arrow. This seems to have Biblical support…

.

“God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day…

“If He turn not, He will whet His sword; He has bent his bow, and made it ready…

“He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death…

“He ordains His arrows against the persecutors.”  Psalms 7:10-13

.

Orion the archer shooting at the Revelation 12 Dragon can be seen in this upright position in mid-winter, mid-sky.

.

.

.

.

 

ORION, THE GOOD SHEPHERD

.

.

 Here is a brand new Orion. This was first seen in December, 2012. With the addition of a single star, Theta Geminorum (the left hand of the Castor twin of Gemini), Orion the Reaper becomes the 5th personality of good shepherd no textOrion: Orion the Good Shepherd.

.

Theta Geminorum is a class A3, 4th magnitude star, which means it is much fainter than either Castor or Pollux. This is the little star at the very tip of the hook of Orion, the Good Shepherd’s rod & staff. But faint as it may be, it nevertheless presents a giant concept, which is a very prominent Bible truth: namely, that Jesus is the Good Shepherd.

.

It becomes the tip of Orion’s Shepherd’s Rod, as is written… “A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (lack). He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters…I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me…” Psalm 23:1, 2, 4

.

 

You can read more on this particular personage of Orion, by clicking here… “Orion, The Good Shepherd”

.

This above sketch can be seen in this position, mid-sky in mid-winter.

.

.

As the below picture shows, even the stars, when photographed, look like crosses. And so too, the Church will shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3 … And also“Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.” Psalm 138:3 (photo courtesy of  NASA)

.

.

NASA Explanation: Unusual appendages around bright stars are commonplace, but never seem to be mentioned. What are they? First, a telescope brings starlight falling over a large area to a small area. To get at this small area, however, one must go inside a reflecting telescope, and this can only be done with support rods, which are right in the view of the telescope. The wave nature of light causes it to deflect when passing near these rods. Light scatters away from the original destination point ending up elsewhere and appearing as “diffraction spikes.” These annoying spikes steal precious light from the central image and hide light from fainter, more interesting stars. Above, astronomers are more interested in the half-circled point near the image center, than the cool-looking diffraction spikes from the bright star at the bottom.

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:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

In this busy work-a-day world, there are many very interesting 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”

.

But having said this, there is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike these people in this photo 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 nuances and hidden biblical truths 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).

.

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Chur7 stars as Crossch (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 area where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses…

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

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 starry signs 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.
