GREAT SIGN IN REVELATION --
On September 23rd 2017 a unique astronomical alignment of the Sun, Moon, constellation Virgo, constellation Leo and the planets Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Venus is going to fulfill the passage from Revelation 12:1. Believe what you want because not everyone will accept this concurrence of events or alignment.
1 - And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.
2 - And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
A little background on the words in the verses. I view "sign" as an event that people if not millions of them can "see" or be aware of. The ultimate irony of the matter is because the Sun is "in" Virgo that we cannot see this alignment from the Earth but we know that it takes place regardless. The woman has always been represented as the 12 tribe House of Israel. The crown can only refer to the 12 tribes of the House of Israel and not to the jews. The moon is a dark object that does not radiate any light or energy. It is evil and in total contrast to the Sun. The Sun radiates light which can also refer to righteousness or knowledge.
The woman is Israel and the crown of stars represents the twelve tribes of Israel. Paralleling Joseph’s dream, the Moon and the Sun are also represented his mother and father (Genesis 37:10), and as we later learn in Revelation 12, the child is the Messiah.The Bible in this verse describes an actual celestial (heaven) physical event. The description is of the Sun, Moon, and the stars which are real physical objects in space. There is nothing in the text that states the description is a dream or an illusion. I have checked via Strong's and there appear not to be any mistranslations in that verse. The word "crown" is properly translated as "exalted rank". Virgo means "virgin" and has always been represented as a woman.The verse mentions the Sun and Moon by name, the constellation Virgo is the only constellation in the ecliptic that represents a woman, and the only stars directly above Virgo's head are the stars in Leo.
I have noticed that constellations in the Southern hemisphere appear to be upside down, inverted or reversed relative to what I am normally used to observe in the Northern Hemisphere. In any event, the stars in Leo are at the head of the constellation Virgo and the Moon is still at the feet, regardless of which hemisphere the viewer is located.
Jupiter is the only object in the sky that can remain in Virgo's womb for the exact length of a human pregnancy (42 weeks) during retrograde and it just so happens to universally represent the chief male deity. The reader can go to the sky and telescope web page or other astronomical websites to corroborate this thesis.
One can take issue with the claim that Leo including Mercury, Mars, and Venus is compromised of 12 stars. It's true that some depictions of Leo have 10 stars, some 13, and some even 15 or more, but what does that prove? Leo is generally depicted as nine stars. So perhaps you could argue that the number of stars in Leo varies if you use unorthodox depictions, but what you can't say is that Leo including Mercury, Mars, and Venus can't equal 12 stars because clearly it can and judging by the most prevalent depictions of the constellation that's exactly how many stars will be above Virgo's head on September 23rd. We can watch the moon come into position before September 23rd. You will have to go out some night and come to your own conclusion as to the number of "stars" above Virgo's head.
This sign really is unique. About a dozen or so supposed matches have been presented from other years, but only the 2017 alignment perfectly the description in Revelation 12.
This alignment doesn't just fit the description, it fits it so precisely that once you see it for yourself with open eyes chills inevitably ensue. Some people say that the Moon is under Virgo's feet every year, but this isn't a very accurate statement. The Moon's position in the sky viewed from earth substantially varies due to its plane of motion being about 7 degrees tilted from the earth-Sun plane, that in many years its orbit brings it very far from the woman's feet. In 2017 the Moon is pretty much as close to Virgo's feet as it can possibly be. The moon at Virgo's feet can represent Christ's crushing all evil including Satan's head. This would also support Gen 49:10 in that Judah's scepter will end upon Shilo's return.
The alignment of Mercury, Mars and Venus in the woman's "crown" is also extraordinarily precise, forming an unusually straight and equidistant line in the bare area between Leo and Virgo. Virgo's crown (really Leo and 3 planets) is just about as perfect as it can possibly be. Likewise for the "pregnancy". Jupiter's apparent retrograde motion allows it to remain in the womb for the exact length of a human pregnancy. Jupiter traverses Virgo every 11 or 12 years and when it passes through her womb it usually goes straight through in as little as one and a half months. Retrograde is a function of the position of both the Earth and Jupiter relative to the Sun. When it does enter into a retrograde situation the planet's circular movement occurs largely outside of the womb. In 2017 Jupiter's path inside the womb is just about as perfect as it can possibly be and the nearly indiscernible "bump" in May-June was right at the time a real mother would begin seeing her baby kick. Just think about all this for a minute and let it sink in.
What we do know is that the unique alignment on September 23rd 2017 precisely fits the description given in Revelation 12:1-2. I believe that this sign is antecedent to Yashua's imminent birth or return.
