God promised that, “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;” Luke 21:25. 

.

But what we didn’t remember is, “the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” Hebrews 4:3 

.

Yes, these Signs Of Heaven were an integral part of God’s finished works, already created from the foundation of the world, as it says here in Hebrews 4:3.

1ST ADVENT, A SURPRISE

.

But as we have learned in the past, God often works in ways we aren’t expecting, or looking for.

.

For instance, at the first Advent, Jesus came in a way that nobody was expecting. Yes, there was a general consensus among the theologians in those days, that the Messiah would come with conquering armies to overtake the enemies of the Jews.

.

And of course, the quiet and gentle manner in which Jesus did actually come took everyone by surprise.

LOOSING THE BANDS OF ORION Orion Constellation

.

God spoke several times of Orion, in Scripture. His question to Job was a very mystifying question, to say the least… “Canst thou…loose the bands of Orion?” Job 38:31. 

.

Such a strange question, indeed! How could a constellation have its bands loosed, much less, even have bands? Puzzling, puzzling!

.

But now, He is revealing this bright and beautiful constellation in a way that has never before been seen. God Himself is loosing Orion’s bands, as He is just now unraveling this age-old mystery.

.

And we are beginning to understand that this most infamous of all constellations is nothing less than a remarkable metaphor concerning Jesus!

7 MAJOR STARS OF ORION…Orion Constellation

.

Orion Constellation can best be seen all winter (but even in August in the pre-http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:25_Orionis_location.pngdawn hours of morning in eastern skies) traveling east to west through the night, in mid-sky.

.

To find the seven major stars of Orion (one star on each shoulder and one star on each foot, plus the three stars which make his belt), you can locate on just about any clear night regardless of the blackness of the night. To find Orion’s other stars, you need more star-visibility…a darker, moonless night, and possibly away from city lights.

THE 5 OFFICES OF ORIONorion good shepherd

.

But like most of the other Signs which this website reveals, Orion too, has much more to say as he changes his position in the sky.

.

And this Soldier in the Heavens puts on different garb, as he presents the five awesome aspects of his various offices.

.

From ‘Orion the Soldier’, to ‘Orion the Reaper’, to ‘Orion the Archer’, to ‘The Cross of Orion’, and last but certainly not least, “Orion, The Good Shepherd”. 

.

This amazing constellation presents a very complex revelation of the God’s magnificent love for a fallen planet, seen in these five offices.

.

So read on and discover, “things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 13:35

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

But before examining Orion, let’s take a quick look at Revelation, Chapter 12, and how it is the foundation of the Gospel Story; but also the foundation of the signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars, as mentioned in Luke 21:25…

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

REVELATION 12 IN HEAVENwinter four constellations

.

Revelation 12 presents the Gospel story as though it was taking place in Heaven. It speaks of stars and signs in Heaven.

.

There are three players in this heavenly drama, found in Revelation 12: a woman, a dragon, and Michael the soldier. The amazing thing about all this is, that this Gospel story is not only found in the Bible, but also is seen in the constellations.

.

But let’s quickly introduce these three characters found in the constellations:

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

REVELATION 12 WOMAN

.

First there is the Revelation 12 Woman: “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” Revelation 12:1, 2.

.

If you find Ursa Majorstar-chart ursa major summerr in the warmer months, it appears as a headless woman, who is in travailing in child-birth. This woman represents the eternal Church of God, as it gives birth to Christ, as is written…

.

“My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.” Galatians 4:19, 20.

.

Today’s Church has a mission to accomplish, so that Christ can be our head. And these winter constellations will show us how this is to be accomplished.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

REVELATION 12 DRAGON

.

Next is the Revelation 12 Dragon: “And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heavenstar chart orion & dragon; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 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.

.

Of course, this dragon represents Satan as he battles against Heaven. And as you can see, this dragon is spewing a wave of water from his mouth. This also is from 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

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

MICHAEL, THE SOLDIERstar chart orion & dragon

.

Last is Michael the Soldier, who battles against the Dragon: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7, 8.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, Michael here represents Christ as He battles this dragon. This will be adequately proven in this article and in various other sections of this website. No, Christ is not merely an angel. Christ is very eternal God. But Christ is often represented as various entities, such as a rose, or a burning bush, as well as many others things in the Bible.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

FROM WOMAN IN LABOR TO WOMAN FLEEING

.

But one more aspect of this constellation group must be mentioned. This Revelation 12 Woman appears star-chart ursa major summerras headless woman, with child, in the warmer months. But in winter months, she rotates in the sky until she is upside-down. At this point, she now appears as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12:

.

Listen… “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” Revelation 12:14.

.

As we look at this star-chart, we notice that this star-chart ursa majorwoman now has a head. This is accomplished by the star which was in her womb area, which represented the Christ-child. In her present upside-down position, that star is now in the area of her head.

.

Now a great Bible concept is fulfilled… “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body.” Ephesians 5:23.

.

So God has created this constellation to present an incredible concept, namely this: The Church has a mission to accomplish. And that mission is to allow Christ to fully become the head of the Church. And when the Church fully dies to all selfishness, then and only then will the Church have Christ as its head.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE GOODLY HORSEHoly-Ghost-Rider in the Western night-sky

.

As you may have noticed, there is a horse constellation. This horse, while not directly mentioned in Revelation 12, is found in several other places. First, in Revelation 6, and in Chapter 19, we see the Lord riding on a white horse.

.

This Goodly Horse in Battle Constellation represents the Church in battle. And this will be discussed further down this page.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

MICHAEL: CHRISTOrion the Soldier Star Chart wikipedia

.

This concept of Orion the Soldier battling the Dragon who is spewing water from his mouth is found in Revelation Ch. 12… “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” Revelation 12:7.

.

Of course, it doesn’t say that Michael is Christ, but it obviously is speaking of Christ.

.

Listen to Isaiah… “In that day the LORD with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish…crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” Isaiah 27:1   

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

REVELATION 12 TAKES PLACE IN HEAVENS

.

Revelation 12 is a direct reference to Signs Of Heaven. Notice how this chapter reads… And there winter four constellationsappeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman”. Revelation 12:1. 

.

And listen again… “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon.”. 

.

And again“And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:” Revelation 12:3, 5.

.

So we see that Revelation 12 is definitely pointing to a battle scene in the stars. 

.

Now at this point, many will ask… “Are you saying that Michael is Christ!? What are you? Some cultist?”

.

The answer to this question will be discussed in the below paragraph.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.Orion Logo Signs Of Heaven

MICHAEL SYMBOLIZES CHRIST

.

Orion the Soldier has to do with Michael, the Arch-angel, spoken of in Revelation Ch. 12. Obviously, here in Revelation 12, Michael represents Christ as He battles the Dragon (Satan). What else could this passage about Michael be, except Christ? A very well-guarded secret today, is that Michael being Christ was a commonly accepted idea in times past. It wasn’t until some false gospels began teaching this too, that theologians began to teach otherwise.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

WHAT DOES HENRY SAY?

.

Listen to that most respected of all New Testament theologians, Matthew Henry, as he commented on Revelation, Chapter 12… “The parties – Michael and his angels on one side, and the dragon and his angels on the other: Christ, the great Angel of the covenant, and his faithful followers; and Satan and all his instruments.”

.

So here it becomes clear that Matthew Henry saw Michael as Christ, who is called, “the Angel of the Covenant”. Now Matthew Henry believed that Christ was fully a member of the eternal Godhead! But he also believed that Michael was another name for Christ!

.

.

MANY SYMBOLS OF CHRIST

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

Today, theologians are hesitant to admit this, because they are perhaps fearful of giving credence to some false gospels who believe that Christ is less than eternal God.

.

But the fact is, God compares Himself to many different representations! And so, we shouldn’t be fearful of acknowledging Christ as sometimes being compared to an angel.

.

After all, God compares Himself to a human (Melchizedek, David, Solomon, Job, etc). And God compares Himself to a dove. He also compares Himself to … David… Melchizedek… a rose… a rock… the Sun… a WORM… a fire…rain…a thief…a lily…a sword… a shield…a scepter…a pearl… a Star… a hen… a serpent… a bear… bread… milk… a soldier… water… wine… smoke…the Ark… the temple…a priest…an altar… a bridegroom, and on and on it goes.

.

And so why should it surprise us, that a number of times in Scripture, He refers to Himself as the “Angel of the Lord”? It doesn’t mean that Christ is less than eternal God. Christ IS the Eternal Son of God. It’s just that God uses countless metaphoric symbols in Scripture to illustrate various spiritual ideas.

NOW LET’S LOOK AT

THE VARIOUS OFFICES OF ORION…

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

ORION THE SOLDIER

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

The pagan cultures saw this incredible constellation as a hunter, with a club.

.

Well, they weren’t too far off. Actually, God created it to appear like a soldier. This is because all nature presents aspects of the Gospel.

.

Listen… “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1.

.

And so now we are amazed to discover that beyond the awesome grandeur of the starry night-heavens, God has actually written the Love of God upon the vast heavenly scroll!   

.

.

But as you can see, Orion the Soldier is how God created this constellation to appear in the winter sky! It begins to appear in Fall above the eastern horizon, in the pre-dawn hours, gradually appearing a little bit earlier each night, steadily moving westward. And finally, in late Spring, it disappears below the western horizon.

ORION THE REAPER

.

Orion Reaps Milky WayThis constellation is the 3rd member of the ‘Orion Constellation’ Phenomena. This particular version of Orion is easily seen (if you know what to look for). First you must locate Orion. And then try to find the stars which comprise his sickle. The two brightest stars of his sickle are at the blade. These two stars are Castor and Pollux. Castor and Pollux are known commonly as being in the Gemini Constellation.

.

Of course, Orion is seen in the colder months, but can even be seen starting in late summer, in the eastern skies in the pre-dawn hours of morning. At first he is lying down. But gradually through the night and through the winter, he more and more stands upright. The sketches on this page are rough and do not show every star exactly. However they are close enough to be able to locate this 3rd office that Orion holds (Orion the: 1. Archer   2. Soldier  3. Reaper 4. Cross ).

  Orion The Good Shepherd 

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.01.17.20132

Here is a brand new Or01.17.20133ion. 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), this little star converts Orion the Reaper’s sickle (left), into the hook of a shepherd’s rod & staff; now making the 5th personality of Orion, Orion the Good Shepherd. The sketch to the left is Orion the Reaper. But now, with the addition of that little star, which is commonly known as the left hand of the Castor Twin in the Constellation Gemini, the sketch to the lower right shows the result, which is Orion, The Good Shepherd.

.

Theta Geminorum is a class A3, 4th magnitude star, which means it is much fainter than reduced/noise reducedeither Castor or Pollux. And yet, 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, together with its other Gemini stars, this shepherd’s rod & staff presents a giant concept, which is a very wonderful and beautiful Bible truth: namely, that Jesus is the Good Shepherd, as it 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

THE CROSS OF ORIONwww.signsofheaven.org

.

“And the LORD their God

.

shall save them in that day

.

as the flock of His people:

.

for they shall be as the stones

.

of a crown, lifted up 

.

as an ensign upon his land… 

.

and as an ensign on an hill.” 

.

Zechariah 9:16 & Isaiah 30:17

.

.

.

.

This constellation is the same as Orion, but can also be seen as this cross on a hill.The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart

.

It is best seen in mid-winter, traveling east to west through the night in mid-sky. Orion begins to appear in August, in the pre-dawn hours. However, Orion does not look like a Cross, until it stands upright, later in the season, in pre-dawn hours.

.

Go out in the clear dark night and behold Orion in his four offices! Then show a friend!

.

NOTE: The three stars at the top of the cross, are fainter than the other stars that make up this cross. So if you are in the city, you will have to look carefully to observe them.

HOW ORION INTERACTS WITH OTHER SIGNS

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“CAN YOU LOOSE ORION’S BANDS?”

.

God perplexes Job with the question… “Can you loose the bands of Orion?” This Bible riddle has likewise Orion Logo Signs Of Heavenperplexed theologians down through the ages, but now has been revealed to those of us living at the end of time.

.

You see, at the beginning of winter, you can see Orion, the Dragon, the Horse, and the winter four constellationsWoman in the east, above the horizon. When in the east it appears that the Dragon is winning the battle. The Horse looks as if he is tumbling backwards. Orion likewise appears to have fallen backward. This is similar to the passage from Genesis, in which Jacob is pronouncing his blessings on his children. But when he comes to Dan, it sounds more like a curse.

.

Listen… “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.

.

God often inserts a prophecy, hidden within an Old Testament text. And here is one fine example of how God is using Dan as a picture of Satan, to illustrate a spiritual concept.

7 STARS IMITATES

THE CROSS OF ORION

(Click to read more!)

.Orion the Cross fixed

During mid-winter, for several months, a phenomenon occurs between the two constellations… The Cross of Orion (left), and The 7 Stars (aka, “The Big Dipper”). As you may have already read, The 7 Stars Constellation (right) tips itself up and up until it seems to pour out its contents upon the Earth. At this same time it begins to appear as a giant “Cross”, standing up. You already know this. But what’s even more amazing is that this 7 Stars Constellation seems to be imitating The Cross of Orion. In other words, this 7 Stars Constellation, which represents God’s people is imitating The Cross of Orion! It reminds us that we are to imitate our Lord in all we do! If you look south in winter (at the right time of night), you see the Cross of Orion. Then, an hour later, if you look north, you see the 7 Stars imitating the Cross!

HOLY-GHOST-RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

This newest Signs Of Heaven Constellation (Fall, 2013) is by far the faintest of constellations, but is a very incredible and awesome in a number of ways (which this article will explain). Notice thisWinter Constellations in the west faint outline of a rider on the back of the Goodly Horse in Battle Constellation. Now listen once again to Genesis, Ch. 49… 

.

“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.

.

So now this passage from Genesis, Ch. 49, makes even more sense, because this horse now has a rider.

ORION & HORSE GET

.

THE FINAL VICTORY

.

Now if you will stay up all night, you will see that the tables turn very dramatically for our three warriors. This is because, as night progresses, and this constellation group moves to the west, God has designed this threesome to now be in the opposite circumstance. Now it is Orion and his Horse who are atop the Dragon. Now Orion is about to cut off the Dragon’s head with his two-edged sword, while the Horse is stomping on his tail. And of course, there needs to be no explanation, because this picture tells the whole story. Jesus wins in the end! God’s people are victorious at last! No wonder the Bible calls this story“The Good News”!

ANCIENT RIDDLE REVEALEDWinter Constellations in West

.

Now this winter night’s tale in the Heavens reveals the ancient Bible riddle from the Book of Job. God asks Job… “Can you loose the bands of Orion?” While Job, no doubt, knew of Orion, he probably didn’t know that the answer to this riddle was written in the Stars. But perhaps God revealed it to Job, later on. But God has just now revealed it to us!

.

When Jesus went to the grave, He emerged three days later. He had loosed the bands of death as he conquered the enemies of God…sin, death, and Satan. In effect, Christ’s bands were loosed. When the Church finally glorifies the Cross in these last days, then will that Horse symbol in the sky be fulfilled, as he stomps the Dragon’s tail.

.

And so we have a motion picture in the night-sky. And this “movie” reveals this millenniums-old riddle. 

.

BANDS THAT WILL NEVER BE REMOVED

.Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

“Let Israel now say, that His mercy endures for ever.” Psalm 118:2 

.

But there one more aspect to all this. Did you know that there will be some bands that will never be loosed from Christ? Not now! Not ever! These bands are upon Jesus for now, and forevermore! Those bands are shackled upon God’s wrists for time and eternity: those bands are Christ’s, “bands of love” (Hosea 11:4), which He has for sinful, erring Mankind.

TWO STARS ON ORION’S SHOULDERS…

.

“And thou shalt takeHigh-Priest-www_thebiblerevival_com-public-domain two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the children of Israel: Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone…And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the ephod for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel: and Aaron shall bear their nameOrion Constellations before the LORD upon his two shoulders for a memorial.” Exodus 28:9-12 (condensed) 

.

Notice that there is a star on each of Orion’s shoulders. This would seem to represent the Onyx stones, one on each shoulder of the High Priest in the Old Testament temple service. One stone represented 6 tribes, and the other stone represented the other six tribes. This represents God’s faithful followers throughout time. On Orion’s right shoulder is a red star. This  represents those Christians who were martyred throughout the New Testament era.

THE DRAGON’S “SWEET-TOOTH”

.

If you look carefully, you will notice the Dragon’s lower front tooth is also red, somewhat matching the star, Betelgeuse, on Orion’s right shoulder. These two red stars both seem to symbolize the martyrs who have died by the hand of Satan (the Dragon). This red tooth of the Dragon appears as his “sweet tooth” for the blood of the martyrs for Jesus.

.

THREE-DIMENSIONAL APPEARANCE

.Orion Constellation and Dragon Constellation Eagle Ridge

When looking at a star-chart, the stars representing Orion’s feet appear as if his legs are short. But actually when you look at Orion in the night sky, Orion’s legs appear bent backward, giving this constellation a three-dimensional effect. Of course, many of the constellations on this website also have a three-dimensional appearance to them.

.

This picture to the right just does not do justice to just how far back Orion’s legs appear to be bent backward.

.

ORION’S GATE (THE NARROW GATE)

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.

“Enter ye in at the strait (or ‘narrow’) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (narrow) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7:13, 14 

.

There is another remarkable aspect to the Orion Phenomena, which has to do with Orion the Reaper. This is best seen when the winter Bible Constellations are in the west. if one stands, facing west, when Orion, the Dragon and the Glorious Horse are beginning to sink into the western horizon, that there are two bright stars in Orion’s sickle. And there are two bright stars in the Dragon’s wave of water coming out of his mouth. And the two bright stars in Orion’s sickle is about half the width apart as the two bright stars in the Dragon’s wave of water. What makes this so dramatic is that the Revelation 12 Woman looks as if she is veering towards Orion’s two bright stars.

.

And so, it now appears that this scenario is a picture of that well-known passage that Jesus spoke, concerning the Narrow Gate & the Wide Gate “Enter ye in at the strait (or Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way ‘narrow’) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (narrow) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7:13, 14

.

Now when this constellation group is still in the east, it is not so evident that this Woman is heading for Orion’s sickle. But when they are in the west it now becomes very evident that she is veering toward the Narrow Gate. So this makes a wonderful finale to this Gospel Story written in the sky.

CASTOR & POLLUX

.

& THE MYSTERY SHIP OF THE BIBLE

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.

“And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.” Acts 28:11 

.

Now if this is not remarkable enough already, there is one more incredible phenomenon attached to this.Orion Logo Signs Of Heaven The two bright stars in Orion’s sickle happen to be Castor & Pollux of Gemini fame. Now what’s so remarkable about this you ask?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Backhuysen_Storm.jpg Well, in order to understand this one needs only turn to the Book of Acts, Chapters 27, and 28. There it is told the story of two ships. In Chapter 27, it speaks of the first ship that was supposed to take Paul to Rome to be tried before Caesar. In essence, this was Paul’s Judgment Day. But the ship didn’t make it to Rome. It became destroyed on an island and had to be abandoned. So everyone on the ship had to make it to shore. Then after three months, they all got on a ship from Alexandria, whose sign was Castor & Pollux. From there they were all delivered safely to Rome, where Paul was eventually tried and executed.

.

From all the Biblical language in this story, and because all the stories in Scripture are metaphorical in nature, we must conclude that this story is a prophecyhttp://lavistachurchofchrist.org/Pictures/The%20Early%20Church%20Artwork/target8.html concerning the Church. Matthew Henry, that most notable and highly popular  theologian likewise saw the first ship as representing the Church.

.

So the question is, if the first ship represented the Church, then just what did the second ship represent? Well isn’t it interesting that the second ship had the sign of Castor and Pollux? And isn’t it interesting that Castor and Pollux represent the Narrow Gate in Orion’s reaper’s sickle?  

.

FIRST SHIP REPRESENTS CHURCHES

It seems as if God is trying to get a message to us right now, in a day when the Moon into Blood www.signsofheaven.orgchurches and congregations have become apostate. It seems as if God is now giving us the message that the first ship must be abandoned, and the second ship is what we must now sail into the Judgment Day which is now just over the horizon.

.

In other words, in a day in which we are so immersed in materialism and vain and worldly aspirations, that this heavenly sign is beckoning God’s people to cast our earthly idols to…well…let’s just let Scripture speak for itself… “In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:20, 21.

.

Notice this verse is connected with Judgment Day, a day in which God will arise to shake terribly the earth. 

.

This world is now rapidly changing; natural and man-made catastrophes have been ever-increasing. world-wide paradigm shifts are happening so fast, swifter than we ever deemed possible; shifts of a nature which no one would have believed possible just a few short years ago. Once trusted secular institutions, are now promoting deviant behavior. Many many churches are now so apostate that Christians are hard pressed to find a congregation which still clings to the Bible as the standard for conduct.

“HIDE…TILL…INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST”

Isaiah 26:20

.

Orion Logo Signs Of Heaven“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21 

.

But the greatest reason for this Narrow Gate Phenomenon is to tell God’s people, that this Narrow Gate is only wide enough to allow the character and image of Christ to enter. And the churches of today are allowing such a low-grade of piety to be substituted for the holiness of Christ, that God’s people must make a choice: come out of thehttp://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery Babylon of confusion found in today’s churches, and enter into the Narrow Gate, or, as Scripture plainly warns… “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.” Revelation 18:4.

.

God’s people must now enter into what Scripture calls “The time of Jacob’s trouble”. Listen… “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.” Jeremiah 30:7.

GOD’S PEOPLE WILL SHINE AS THE SUN

.

“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.” Zephaniah 2:3 

.

Orion Logo Signs Of HeavenThe Lord has no intention of “Rapturing” a world-loving Church out of the world we so dearly love. We must overcome the world. The main message in Revelation, to the 7 churches is that of overcoming… He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” Revelation 2:11.

.

Yes, Salvation is by grace alone. But those who are truly Born Again will go on in their Christian warfare to victory. Those who are mere pretenders will remain in their sins. The Day of the Lord will make clear as noonday, just who it is, “that serveth God and him that serveth Him not.” Malachi 3:18.

.

And so the Signs Of Heaven are now appearing. It is just now time for each true worshiper of GoOrion Constellationd to, “cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:20, 21.

.

The “clefts of the ragged rocks”, that we are to hide ourselves, are found between the pages of the Bible. 

.

Orion is a truly remarkable heavenly metaphor. And only the fundamental concepts of this sign of the “Son of man” have been touched on.

.

Well it’s hard to speak of these things in this little space but you can explore these concepts in such articles as “Woman of Revelation 12  & The Narrow Way Constellations”, or “Fleeing to the Mountains-Part 2-The Abomination In Churches” or Castor & Pollux & The Mystery Ship of Scripture“.

.

As a matter of fact, a thorough study of this entire website would be a great assist to understanding these concepts.

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

.

.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1_vermont_night_stargazing_panorama_2009.jpg

“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.
