Preparing for Eternity
What Do the Stars Tell Us?
Catastrophism spans the universe, our planetary system all with its celestial harmony. It grapples with the antiquity of man whose collective memory of cataclysmic events has been erased except in the recesses of our cellular memory. Remnants of antediluvian cities remain along with mysterious legends and myths of their civilizations and disappearance. Our sun has a fiery nature which shows its face and impacts our atmosphere and planet so powerful that it boils the oceans. There are battles in the sky of a physical and spiritual natural. There are times history has noted that the sky falls. Layered calendars reveal a dire future. The constellation clock is ticking…and we sit on the brink of eternity.
Tt is a fixed marker in the sky for our reference.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun,
Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
Its rising is from one end of heaven,
And its circuit to the other end;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat. Psalm 19:1-6
As we see in the following passage we are to look at the stars of heaven as a blessing from God, hope of our future, abundance, provision, and the security of our families when each one walks in Jesus Christ.
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Genesis 22:17
God based astronomy has absolutely nothing to do with the precession of constellations that were named after pagan deities. However biblical astronomy examines a section of a star lit sky as it appeared at a certain times that our different than our modern skies. The canopy of stars are literally frozen in time as a memorial to a divine event. By acknowledging this fact we eliminate the problems associated with motions of the earth and the procession. Wheel of Stars, Andrew Gabriel Roth
Faith Lesson: What events are frozen in canopy of stars that are applicable to my life? What would you have me learn Lord?
There are four integrated calendars in the bible that include the heavenly movements. Each calendar has a different balancing mechanism to adjust the lunar and solar calendars.
Prophetic Calendar is used by God to encode the mysteries of time and space. It began with Adam and will end when Jesus returns, but could potentially be eternal.
Solar-Pre-Metonic which is a solar and lunar calendar from before the time of Moses. It began with Adam.
Equinox Pre-Metonic/Moedic which is a calendar established to determine the spring and fall biblical festivals.
Priestly calendar is connected with the Passover. It begins with the first Passover. It is a time freezing mechanism whose inner workings are still shrouded in mystery.
Faith Lesson: Jesus, the issues of calendars can be confusing and divisive. Please help me understand what I need to comprehend for my life. I know You arranged these calendars.
Cycles of the Heavens
In His Word God, says it is He Who brings the Mazzaroth into its seasons. The Mazzaroth is also known as the Zodiac or Constellations and Wheel of Stars. It is God Who has placed the laws of the heavens above the laws of the Earth, with both heaven and Earth forever submitting to His authority. As we look up into the heavens we need to make a clear distinction between the Mazzaroth as an absolute marker for the regions of the sky as opposed to the deities or as the dwelling place of false deities.
Intercalculated of calendars began in cultures around the world before Jesus Christ. Intercalculation adjusts the solar and lunar calendar systems. Some cultures had a 360 day year with an extra ‘few bad days’ and some 365 days in a year.
Threads of Scripture, legends, and future cataclysms are woven into the biblical tapestry of time and space, from creation unto the End. The following from the Legends of the Jews, Volume 1, is a bit lengthy. As I study the heavens I have noticed more layers of application spanning the spiritual to the physical, and so I am including it for you to consider for the days ahead:
Then the wrath of God was once more enkindled: “What, thou still plottest against the sun? As thou livest, in the world to come his light shall be sevenfold the light he now sheds.” The Sun runs his course like a bridegroom. He sits upon a throne with a garland on his head. Ninety-six angels accompany him on his daily journey, in relays of eight every hour, two to the left of him, and two to the right, two before Him, and two behind. Strong as he is, he could complete his course from south to north in a single instant, but three hundred and sixty-five angels restrain him by means of as many grappling-irons. Every day one looses his hold, and the sun must thus spend three hundred and sixty-five days on his course. The progress of the sun in his circuit is an uninterrupted song of praise to God. And this song alone makes his motion possible. Therefore, when Joshua wanted to bid the sun stand still, he had to command him to be silent. His song of praise hushed, the sun stood still.
The sun is double-faced; one face, of fire, is directed toward the earth, and one of hail, toward heaven, to cool off the prodigious heat that streams from the other face, else the earth would catch afire. In winter the sun turns his fiery face upward, and thus the cold is produced. When the sun descends in the west in the evening, he dips down into the ocean and takes a bath, his fire is extinguished, and therefore he dispenses neither light nor warmth during the night. But as soon as he reaches the east in the morning, he laves himself in a stream of flame, which imparts warmth and light to him, and these he sheds over the earth. In the same way the moon and the stars take a bath in a stream of hail before they enter upon their service for the night.
When the sun and the moon are ready to start upon their round of duties, they appear before God, and beseech him to relieve them of their task, so that they may be spared the sight of sinning mankind. Only upon compulsion they proceed with their daily course. Coming from the presence of God, they are blinded by the radiance in the heavens, and they cannot find their way. God, therefore, shoots off arrows, by the glittering light of which they are guided. It is on account of the sinfulness of man, which the sun is forced to contemplate on his rounds, that he grows weaker as the time of his going down approaches, for sins have a defiling and enfeebling effect, and he drops from the horizon as a sphere of blood, for blood is the sign of corruption. As the sun sets forth on his course in the morning, his wings touch the leaves on the trees of Paradise, and their vibration is communicated to the angels and the holy Hayyot [Ezekiel’s Chariot], to the other plants, and also to the trees and plants on earth, and to all the beings on earth and in heaven. It is the signal for them all to cast their eyes upward. As soon as they see the Ineffable Name, which is engraved in the sun, they raise their voices in songs of praise to God. At the same moment a heavenly voice is heard to say, “Woe to the sons of men that consider not the honor of God like unto these creatures whose voices now rise aloft in adoration.” These words, naturally, are not heard by men; as little as they perceive the grating of the sun against the wheel to which all the celestial bodies are attached, although the noise it makes is extraordinarily loud. This friction of the sun and the wheel produces the motes dancing about in the sunbeams. They are the carriers of healing to the sick, the only health-giving creations of the fourth day…,When God punished the envious moon by diminishing her light and splendor, so that she ceased to be the equal of the sun as she had been originally, she fell, and tiny threads were loosed from her body. These are the stars.
Faith Lesson: Oh Lord, may it be for me as it was when Elisha uttered this prayer, that I might see all I need to see through the many layers and barriers so that I might not be afraid.
“Do not be afraid,” Elisha answered, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 5:17
Purpose of Antediluvian Longevity
Josephus not only transmits the traditions of his Hebrew ancestors, but also refers for corroboration to eight ancient writers of other nations whose works are totally lost, as well as to others of whom some fragments remain. These he says, asserted that they of the first world lived a thousand years; also, that ” God gave the antediluvians a long life, that they might perfect those things which they had invented in astronomy.” As the great year or period of 600 years [we will examine in another article]. This period has been examined and verified by the celebrated French mathematician Cassini, who gives it as his opinion that nothing but the observation of a life of that duration could have sufficed to its discovery. From Noah the Egyptians and the Chinese would derive their early scientific knowledge, as would those others of his descendants who are found to possess it. Montucla, another well-known mathematician and astronomer, attributes the origin of astronomy to the antediluvians. Cassini thus commences his History of Astronomy : “It is impossible to doubt that astronomy was invented from the beginning of the world : history, profane as well as sacred, testifies to this truth.” He refers to Philo for the assertion that “Terah, the father of Abraham, who lived more than a hundred years with Noah, had much studied astronomy, and taught it to Abraham,” who is said by Josephus to have taught it to the Egyptians. That people, however, had probably from their ancestor Noah the same knowledge of it which Sir Wm. Jones considers all the early nations possessed. Abraham may have added the superior science which all antiquity attributes to the Chaldeans. Bailly and others have asserted that astronomy must have been invented when the summer solstice was in the first degree of Virgo, and that the solar and lunar zodiacs were of a similar antiquity. This would have been about 4000 years before the Christian era. They suppose this science to have originated with an ancient and highly civilized people, who lived at that time in about lat. 40°, and that they were swept away by some sudden destruction, leaving, however, traces of their knowledge behind them. This people may have been the antediluvians, and their destruction the Flood. Mazzoroth, Rolleston, 1862
Faith Lesson: I can now see that the longevity of early man in part was so that he could study the firmament, stars, sun and moon, and solar system to witness and document the cycles of the heavens. I have a new respect for the abilities that you have blessed man with. Teach me how to look at the stars and their personal application to my own personal life.
What is the difference between astronomy and pagan astrology?
God established the heavens and set the luminaries and stars in place. The operate within the Laws of Heaven and the Laws of Nature. Consequently, we shall see patterns, numbers, and cycles within time and space. When we see these things our hearts should burst forth in song to God.
The difference comes in when pagan cultures deify the stars and luminaries and attribute their origin apart from God.
And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. Deuteronomy 4:19
Wickedness was associated with the worship of other gods including the sun or moon and host of heaven. After careful inquiry, and if found to be true, that person was to be put to death.
If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the Lord thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the Lord thy God, in transgressing his covenant,
And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:
Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die. Deuteronomy 17:2-5
Faith Lesson: Please Lord, may I see You as I turn my eyes upwards unto the heavens. Bestow upon me discernment, that I will know the difference between Your creation and man’s perversion of it. And finally Lord, please keep wickedness far from me. In Jesus Name, I thank you.
There is an extremely fine line between the holy and the profane. During the creation week God goes to great lengths to ensure that the concept of distinction is made, and that this distinction comes from Him alone.
Many people find stargazing is a perplexing topic. Is it divination or is it endorsed by God?
Certainly if God counts and names the stars as we see then viewing them would be encouraged:
He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name. Psalm 147:4
Ordinances in the Bible were established by God based upon as His placement of the luminaries into the night sky:
Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name. Jeremiah 31:35
The condemnation comes when we look to the stars to divine a propitious destiny, what will happen today (astrology), or detach God from His stars for selfish purposes.
Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.
Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee. Isaiah 47:13-15
We are to wait upon the Lord as we watch the cycles of the stars in the firmament.
This begs the question if it is biblically acceptable to look up to the stars, sun, and moon to observe the cyclic catastrophism that visits not only upon the earth but other planets, our sun and moon, extending to the outer reaches of the spatial heavens?
In the words of Jesus our Master:
Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came and tested Jesus by asking Him to show them a sign from heaven. But He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘The weather will be fair, for the sky is red,’
and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but not the signs of the times!…Matthew 16:2
If either interpreting the sky or signs of the times would have been a sin He would have told us. We still must drill down a bit further though and examine our reason that we look to the skies above as we see:
So when they came together, they asked Him, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” Jesus replied, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”…Acts 1:7
We see in these verses that the Father has fixed certain times and seasons by His authority. If we are merely curious about the climax of history or saving our skins those are wrong reasons. Rather we should be looking up and noticing our season is short and we have little time to be His witness to all the earth.
Faith Lesson: Lord Jesus, I need help in these days of deception to distinguish the holy from the profane as the lines between these blur. Assist me through Your Word and in my prayer time. May Your Holy Spirit guide me in Your ways.
24 Priestly Courses
In the Bible there are 24 courses, watches or divisions to the Priestly schedule. I did not know that they were named but it does not surprise me. The name of the first course or hour is Jehoiarib or ‘God pleads’. This changing of the watches corresponds to relationship between the earth and the constellations.
But in the month of Xanthicus; which is by us called Nisan [springtime], and is the beginning of our year; on the fourteenth day of the Lunar month, when the sun is in Aries; for on this month it was that we were delivered from bondage under the Egyptians: the law ordained that we should every year slay that sacrifice which I before told you we slew when we came out of Egypt: and which was called the Passover. And so we do celebrate this Passover in companies; and leave nothing of what we sacrifice till the day following. Antiquities 3:248
There is only one day in history that fits the exact timing and that is March 22, 1447 BCE. This helps us to know the date of one of the calendar systems, the Priestly system, in the Bible.
Faith Lesson: As a priest in Your kingdom, what watches do you want me to attend to you Lord? Do you want me to kindle Your Light at night, minister, during the day, or do you want me to serve ‘between’?
In the First Century the day was mapped out into twelve equal periods of time, or hours, which were demarcated in a sundial. The hours would vary according to the time of year, consequently it was not equivalent to our 60 minutes.
The word for hour in Aramaic is mentioned in the Book of Daniel. It is better translated as a brief moment. In Daniel 4:19the prophet says he was in a state of astonishment for ‘one hour’. Shorter intervals of time down to seconds are suggested. The Hebrew word and concept translates to ‘instant’ or literally from the ‘winking of the eyes’.
When I consider the above I think of: Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. I Corinthians 15:51-52.]
Starting at dawn it would take the sun a few hours to heat up and so around the third hour from dawn was known as the ‘heat of the day’. As we see: And it was so on the morrow, that Saul put the people in three companies; and they came into the midst of the host in the morning watch, and slew the Ammonites until the heat of the day: and it came to pass, that they which remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together. 1 Samuel 11:11
Prior to sunset there would be ‘the cool of the day’. Halfway from dawn to late afternoon was called ‘midday’.
The Hebrew word for ‘noon’ is from the root meaning ‘roof’ or the sun is overhead. Night was divided into three parts.
Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street. Lamentations 2:19
So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.
And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand. Judges 7:8-9
And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians.. Exodus 14: 24
Faith Lesson: Lord Jesus, I pray what watch did you create for me to attend? I know that I am to always be ready, but I also know that You uniquely created me to be especially alert at certain times. I want to give you my best during that particular watch.
The Priestly system and the Moedic system is oriented around the Exodus. Collectively, the four calendars showcase the full redemption of mankind. Through biblical mathematics and science can prove the spiritual ramifications of this pattern. 1 Kings 6:1 was the key to unlock the year of the Exodus and then Josephus and Philo showed the God based Wheel of Stars [Zodiac]. The priest wore the suspended Exodus sky into their garments and memory until the Second Temple was destroyed. Since then only fragments have remained.
Throughout Scripture we see that the words for the Son and sun can be used as a dual purpose word. This means that it has spiritual application and also a physical application in that we may see some of the workings of the celestial realms.
Daniel 7:10, Strong’s 9992-serve
Daniel 6:15, Strong’s 9993- sun
The word sun is directly related to priestly service with the same root as to be in ministry or service.
A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:10
There is a link between the ministry of the priests and the sun. Most of us know the it was the job of the priest’s to keep the Menorah or lampstand lit from evening until morning. God has commanded the shemesh (sun) to give power over to the shamash (priests) as it is setting. Aaron and the other priests begin the process of taking the sunlight and mimicking it upon the earth as it to say, during the daytime the shemesh declares His glory but at night the shamashdoes.
Faith Lesson: With all my heart I desire to be Your Light of service to the increasingly dark work. May You illuminate my life so that I might share Your Light with others. In doing so I know that when I share Your Light that it does not take away from Your Light with me but as the loaves and fishes multiplies Your Light with, no diminution.
Constellation Clock Precession
To really understand the biblical calendar system one must integrate four calendar systems into one system. Biblical scholar and linguist, Andrew Gabriel Roth, has written the definitive book, Wheel of Stars, on this topic. He discovered and verified this unified calendar system through the bible, mathematics, and science. The following are excerpts from his efforts:
Twelve is the perfect number, of which the circle of the zodiac in the heaven is a witness, studded as it is with such numbers of brilliant constellations. The periodical revolution of the sun is another witness, for he accomplishes his circle in twelve months, and men also reckon the hours of the day and of the night as equal in number to the months of the year. Philo, On flight and Finding 1:184
God commanded that the moon be used to keep track of sacred occasions although in the Book of Job we are reminded not to forget the significance of the constellations.
Needless to say in biblical astronomy there is allot of mathematics. Thankfully, math that can be achieved easily through various software programs. From that math, we can determine that each priestly course takes 276 years to advance and expresses forward as 1,104 years mirroring the precession of the constellations.
Joshua 4, has a ton of secrets hiding in plain sight although their meaning was lost to time. The calendar of the priests is encoded in this chapter.
And it came to be, when the entire nation had completely passed over the Jordan, that God spoke to Joshua, saying, “Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from every tribe, and command them, saying, ‘Take for yourselves twelve stones from here, out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet stood firm. And you shall bring them with you and leave them in the camp in which you spend the night.’ ” (Verses 1-3)
We have seen previously how both of our 1st CE Jewish historians Josephus and Philo lined the number of the tribes of Israel with the number of solar months in the year and even in some cases the Zodiac, which of course is a star-based system.
At a minimum, the idea of setting up what will be memorial stones in the midst of the Jordan while surrounding priests holding the most sacred object in their possession in those waters seems odd. It certainly gave the Israelites no military advantage, leading to the idea that it must have some kind of ritualistic or memorial purpose, or both. Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
And Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the children of Israel, one man from every tribe, and Joshua said to them, “Pass over before the ark of your God into the midst of the Jordan, and each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, so that this shall be a sign in your midst when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ “Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of God. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a remembrance to the children of Israel forever.” (Verses 4-7)
The term “pass over” is not the same as that of the Feast, but that word is where we get the term “Hebrew”. Verse 7 confirms that the 12 stones are for remembrance, but not of this moment alone. The Hebrews are remembering another time they “crossed over”. The 12 stones that are set up by the leaders are reminiscent of the same series of gifts a similar group gave to dedicate the Tabernacle in Numbers 7. The Ark of the Covenant, a golden box with winged creatures on top of it, represents the sun and its rays, but there are two groups of 12: the men who represent the months, and the stones they bring that represent 12 years. Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
And the children of Israel did so, as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan, as God had spoken to Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel and took them over with them to their camp, and laid them down there. Joshua also set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests who bore the ark of the covenant stood. And they are there to this day. (Verses 8-9)
The 12 stones are in the midst of the Jordan River. The name Jordan means flowing in Hebrew. The four priests carrying the ark represent the seasons, following a pattern that was previously set in Numbers 10-11 when the Israelites broke camp from Mount Sinai after two years of being there.
The four kinds of Levites were each matched up with a season. The priests were charged with calling out the festivals, which began with Passover in the spring (Leviticus 23:1-4).
Then, the next two groups, Gershon and Merari, were charged with building up and breaking down the Tabernacle which in many cases represents the sun also (facing east). When the sun is “built up” at its highest point it is the start of summer while its lowest point is the start of winter. Since we now order our months from the spring, the Gershonites represent summer and the Merarites winter, leaving the fall season for the Kohathiteswho are responsible for the Ark of the Covenant.
Genesis 46:11, which lists their birth order as “Gershon, Kohath and Merari”. This means that Kohath—the fall—comes in between Gershon (summer) and Merari (winter). Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
And the priests who bore the ark stood in the midst of the Jordan until every matter was finished that God had commanded Joshua to speak to the people, according to all that Moses had commanded Joshua. And the people hastened and passed over. And it came to be, when all the people had completely passed over, that the ark of God and the priests passed over in the presence of the people. And the sons of Reuben, and the sons of Gaḏ, and half the tribe of Menashsheh passed over in fives before the children of Israel, as Moses had spoken to them. About forty thousand armed ones of the army passed over before יהוהGod for battle, to the desert plains of Jericho. (Verses 10-13)
Once more, the Jordan means “flowing” so what is flowing? The answer is of course time is flowing. The Ark is carried through the use of binding poles which each go through two holes on the Ark’s sides. Looking at the Ark edge on, which is to say, sideways, there are two curved pointers (spelled arcs), one which goes from the front over the golden cover (the sun) to the back pole, represents the halfway turn of the year from spring to fall; the reverse course is the other equinox-based half year, running from fall to spring. Together, the combined motion is tracking solar years, 12 of them, just as it is tracking with another 12 the solar months that make up each year. Since the priests are in the literal center of it all, this has to be a calendar code all about them! Their central location also suggests this is about cycling and reset, but the question is, when? Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
On that day God made Joshua great before the eyes of all Israel. And they feared him, as they had feared Moses, all the days of his life. And God spoke to Joshua, saying, “Command the priests who bear the ark of the Witness, and let them come up from the Jordan.” And Joshua commanded the priests, saying, “Come up from the Jordan.”
And it came to be, when the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of God had come from the midst of the Jordan, and the soles of the priests’ feet touched the dry land, that the waters of the Jordan returned to their place and flowed over all its banks as before. And the people came up from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they camped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho. (Verses 14-19)
So when the priests come back on land, the special time code ritual ends and normal time begins “flowing” again with the river resuming its normal state.
They then camp at a place called Gilgal, which means “stone circle”—after they just made a stone circle—on the border of Jericho—a city that is named after the moon. We now have a lunar aspect being intercalated with the overall solar architecture. They also just before this made another kind of covenant circle by the stone circle in the place named “stone circle”? It’s called circumcision!
We saw this word come into place in the Seven Thunders series. In particular, the rolling thunder from heaven in Songs of the Thunderbolt: Hidden Thunder Reveals Compassion Amidst Justice. We also saw this word Gilgal in the billows and rolling waves of the sea in: Ten Plagues: The Sign of Jonah Illuminates the darkness. I have to wonder the connection between the Stonehenge type circles around the world, as witnesses from other times involving the supernatural flowing events and cyclical events?
However, the most important detail is the exact date given in the Scripture: the 10th day of the first month of Abib. This is remembering the time when the Israelites set a lamb aside in Egypt a few days before Exodus and the parting or control of the waters is of course another familiar image to the time of the Israelite’s redemption, as the text itself which shortly point out. Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
And now the conclusion:
And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. And he said to the children of Israel, saying, “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel passed over this Jordan on dry land,’ for God your Elohim dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had passed over, as God your Elohim did to the Sea of Reeds, which He dried up before us until we had passed over, so that all the peoples of the earth shall know the hand of God that it is strong, so that you shall fear God your Elohim forever.” (Verses 20-24)
Once more, the code and ritual were completed when the priests got back on land, when normal time resumed.Joshua then removes the 12 stones from the “flowing”, the Jordan, and puts the stones once more in the place named stone circle. This is a second witness to the toggling nature of special priestly time and regular time. There is, I firmly believe, a public remembrance for Israel of this moment in time and that of Exodus, and a secret remembrance by the priests for how they count time.
Jewish tradition maintains that Course 1 was on duty when both Temples burned. But I also was able to use the same system to demonstrate the precise birth times of John the Immerser and the Messiah. This can be determined due to knowing when the Immerser’s father was struck mute 15 months before Jesus was born.
The instruction to have a 24 course architecture of the priesthood was that of Aaron under divine inspiration (1 Chronicles 24:19). However, even though the 24 courses were not online before David, it was David who set them up in a way that had them start the exact right week they would have had 24 courses served from the year after Exodus.
In any case, all this research boils down to this handful of principles for the priestly calendar:
1) The priests of Aaron serve from one Friday afternoon to the next Friday afternoon, when the next course comes on duty (2 Chronicles 23:1-8; Josephus, Antiquities, 7:365).
2) When a Great Feast occurs (Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot), all courses are in the Temple to assist, but the service counts only to the course that is on duty that week 2; the priests are included in the commandment for every Israelite male to be in Jerusalem at those times (Deuteronomy 16:16, 1 Kings 9:25, 2 Chronicles 35:1-19; Josephus, Antiquities, 4:200 and 18:94).
3) And now, finally, this is where the discussion of Joshua 4 comes into play. All those patterns reveal a rule that says “At the end of 12 years, on the start of the Friday on or after Vernal Equinox, the first division of priests must return regardless as to what the current course count dictates from the previous week.”
2 Such is very strongly implied when many relevant passages of Scripture are carefully pieced together. However, the best proof I can offer of proper interpretation of this rule is the fact that the priestly calendar in this configuration worked perfectly time and time again, for some reasons already stated earlier.
As a result, the priests do a “hard return” every 626 weeks or 4,382 days and this yields perfect matches between Scripture and astronomy and history, because the last day of that cycle will always end at sunset and never go past that point because of the dictates of math alone. Scroll to Scroll, Andrew Gabriel Roth
Faith Lesson: I am Your living stone and time is flowing around me. What lessons do You want me to learn during this unusual season? Lord have you ever suspended time in my life? If you, I will use this as a foundation of trust as the fabric between time and space begin to disintegrate, so that I will not be afraid.
Secret of the Constellation Clock
The following are excerpts from Wheel of Stars: We see throughout Scripture that the heavens do literally declare the glory of God, but it is also clear that Scripture does this same thing with mathematics derived from those same heavens. Sir Issac Newton tucked away secret papers in an old desk at Cambridge in the 1930’s that calculated Jesus’ return in this century.
23 years x 12=276 years for a total course’s service
276 x 24=6,624 years, 1 for each course’s service time in heaven
it becomes remarkable when:
6,624+276 (one course)=6,900
And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God;
21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. Daniel 9:22-27
It is related to the 69 weeks in the cycle of Jesus first coming and to the Prophetic calendar. The return of Jesus is tied to an event happening soon after the completion of the 69th remaining cycle, which is the Jubilee. In this case, 69 cycles of 100 years each rather than 6,900 years with 100 years to go before the 7,000 because the 100 year generational cycle holds a special place in the Wheel of Stars.
Through God’s infallible and perfect mathematical precision He has brought all of us to the end of 69 century cycles. We await the imminent commencement of the 70th century cycle. What is missing between that little cycle and the return of Jesus is the 25th course to bring us the rest of the way. Who is the 25th priest?
It is not Jesus, for the Constellation Clock points to a time after His return, at which point, the heavens may be shaken and the rules of time suspended.
I am that I am, I will be who I will be…The Apostle Paul said that faith is the belief of the unseen and the knowledge of that which is incomplete. God, through His Wheel is saying to you, “I have brought you this far, I have called you out and shown you right from wrong. I have given you the way of life and goodness and even sent My Son to die for your sake. All this I have done, but the one thing I will not do is force you to believe in Me.”
You are the 25th Priest! I find this especially confirming as we come into the 25th Solar Cycle where many God stands and waits for us at the end of time.
You must take the steps and share the Love of the Father and His Son to the world. The Wheel may seem incomplete but from the perspective of you day, how often do you find yourself not accomplishing all you desired for the day? Our day always appears to us as incomplete. We have to walk the narrow bridge between free will/faith and “I need more proof”.
Faith Lesson: I accept to be your priest to this dark world. I have You Jesus. I have faith. Whatever You want me to say I will say. Wherever You want me to go, I will go. Whatever You want me to do…I will do with all joy.
Time of Jubilee
The Priestly cycles began in 1446 BCE to the entry of Canaan. Floating courses recycle to the time of the Exodus, which is clearly after the Vernal Equinox, every 5 years.
The Pre-Metonic system inserts a 30 day leap month every two to three years to compensate for the lunar year being 11-12 days shorter than the solar. This synchronizes not through a 19 year cycle but as to whether the lunar year runs out before the Vernal Equinox Day about March 19th. If it is past the Vernal Equinox Day the next day, the First New Moon counts as 1 Abib (spring), if not, the following New Moon 30, days later, is 1 Abib.
The Jubilee Clock begins in the spring 1406. BCE. If we go 50 years from that time, the first Jubilee in the land of Canaan/Israel would be 1356 BCE. Then, as we progress two Jubilees each century-in any year that ends in ’05 or ’06-we come to 28 Jubilees by 6BCE, the year of Jesus birth.
The first Jubilee of the Common Era would have been 45 CE. Every Jubilee afterwards must end in ’49 or ’95 meaning that 41 Jubilees pass until we get to 1995.
69 Jubilees have passed since the entry into Canaan and the world now lives in the 70th Jubilee Week.
There are two calendar strands that must be accounted for to indicate what lies before us.
Jesus may return in the middle of the 70th Jubilee Week which is in 2020. If this is not the case then in 2030 is the 2000th anniversary of the Resurrection which also occurs in this 70th Jubilee as well as the 25th Solar Cycle.] The end of the 70th Jubilee is in 2045.
Faith Lesson: Lord, only You Father know the season and the hour of the return of Jesus but I do see that time is getting short for His arrival. What do I need to do to be that spotless Bride with oil in my lamp for His arrival? Bear my heart and expose anything that is not of You so that I might repent in during this season. It is my heart desire to dwell with you forever and ever.
True and False Narrative
I insert this You Tube as an example of how God’s truth of the Constellations can become tainted as it disperses among the peoples and cultures, after the tongues and languages became confused at Babel-possibly earlier. About 2/3 through this video it will say that this is based on information obtained from the nephilim. There is scientific and astronomical accuracy in this video but it is interspersed with deities and a false narrative. This is an excellent discernment exercise tool to hone your abilities of detecting fake news or astronomy.
Within the topic of Catastrophism you will hear references to pagan ideas. You will also see similarities between biblical astronomy and astrology.
Sacred Geometry: The term sacred geometry describes the geometrical laws which create everything in existence. It unites the mind and the heart, spirit and matter, science and spirituality. Everything in nature is made up of patterns, structures, and designs from the smallest atom to the infinite universe. Notice that the definition excludes God and extols nature, this indicates to you it is false.
Truth: God did embed patterns and designs into His creation. They all are created for His purposes. Yes, even numbers and math were created by God.
Rise and fall of civilizations is determined by Sacred Geometry: Cyclic cataclysm can be determined by Sacred Geometry and are responsible for the rise and fall of civilizations. This is false because God has chosen to do things outside of time and space such as Joshua’s Long Day.
Truth: God did establish the cycles of time and there are some as we have seen that are fixed, which may include cataclysm, but the more we study Scripture the clearer it becomes that God uses His numbers and patterns. Yes, they may be cyclical, and for that we give Him glory.
You will hear about cycles. Common references are 400, 600, 1200, 2000, 6400, 12,000, and 25,900. As you look for commonalities and personal applications, ensure that your source is biblical or the information can be verified through Holy Scripture.
This chart shows that there have been 15 civilization cataclysms in history. It is believed that one left only about 40 females on the planet.
You will being to see many charts and graphs. Many of these are scientific, which is alright, as long as you keep God factored into your model. But will also see many that that are based upon pagan belief systems. As you glean from sources this is not inherently bad, for even the demons and pagans can see God’s system. Just do not used these belief systems especially for your spiritual maturation process.
Sometimes, your will see hybrid charts that mix astrology and science. Those are dangerous waters in which to glean, but if you are a mature Christian, you might venture in to secure what you can verify or vet through Holy Scripture. Once again, that is dangerous.
You will see people with different views.
Faith Lesson: Lord, as I am presented with numbers, cycles, and patterns please help me to see You in these things. Please guard me from the enemy who would seek to pervert You and Your Creation. Help me to see Your truth when I am presented with new information.
Once you begin mining the golden nuggets of the Holy Scripture and the heavens it can be mind boggling. Some of you may want to begin this exploration in a safe place. I am extremely careful with the material that I place before my eyes and present to you. After prayer the Lord prompted me to share some of may favorite references. Some are books and some are online but typically have a book form you can purchase. Once you have the basics down, it is time to fly-expanding your tent stakes.

Season of Change & Revelation 22
It is fascinating that at the time of the birth of Jesus Christ the constellation of prominence was Aires, the Lamb or Ram, which as we have learned in the Seven Thunders is the symbol of power and salvation. Currently, the constellation prominent in the sky is Pieces, the fish, which stirs our memories towards reproduction and the many miracles of God’s provision. The next constellation will be the Water Bearer or Aquarius. Jesus Christ is the Living Water. When will that we see the Living Water face-to-face? It depends upon the authority that you use. As for me, I await my Jesus!
And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
