I thought I would share something. I have no idea if it means anything at all. Last night I was watching some new items and I watched a video which was talking Reformation day which is to occur upon October 31st 2017. Apparently, it is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther named his Thesis to a church door in Wittenberg Germany.
“The Holy Father is thinking of signing the text in 2017, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, alongside Evangelical leaders representing roughly one in four Christians in the world today.
Francis is convinced that the Reformation is already over. He believes it ended in 1999, the year the Catholic Church and the Lutheran World Federation issued a joint declaration on justification, the doctrine at the heart of Luther’s protest.”
I generally like to take these dates and put them in my calendar, so I can see what scriptural days they are falling upon. New Moon day is shown below with the 1 on it, followed by the 8th, 15th and 22nd days of the scriptural month. One should be aware when looking at this, that these dates are for one located in Australia, and thus could be different by a day for other locations.
I noticed when I counted from new moon day that the 10th day also landed on Reformation day – that is the 31st of October. From what I presently understand however, this month is the tenth day of the eighth scriptural month.
In scripture we see the lamb being inspected from the 10th day of the first month. That is judgment is taking place. Also upon the 10th day of the 7th month the day of atonement we see judgment occurring.
You will find this Judgement in Leviticus 23 and also occurring in Leviticus 16 (which occurred upon the day of atonement). It was this day that the decision was made, and those who did not observe this day the judgment was death.
28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before Yahuwah Elohim.
29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people.
30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
So I went to take a look in Stellarium to see if there is anything else occurring in the sky during the eight scriptural month this year (presently 2017). Here is a screenshot from the 6th – 7th day of the month (depending on where you live):
Upon the 27th-28th the Sun and Jupiter are together. Jupiter here has just been born and the sun is right beside it. Jupiter here would represent the child who was just born and was caught up to heaven.
5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to Elohim and His throne.
If we look towards the scales now we see Mercury is above the scales (which we know as Libra). Mercury was one of the 12 stars and it has been cast down and judgment is about to take place. Hence the scales.
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
It has raised for me the question about which tribe Mercury could be. Which tribe was it that persecuted the Messiah? I understand it was the Jewish people at the time the Messiah was here. We could interpret it to be Judah, although I am not certain.
I note when looking at Mercury it has a crater which is supposed to be around 70 – 80 Km wide (the details are not exact). The name of the crater is Judah Ha-Levi. To me that sounds like the tribe of Judah and the tribe of Levi.
I could not locate Mercury in the scriptures directly, but I did find that it corresponds to Wodens day. You see the Romans honoured their deity Mercury by naming the fourth day for him, in Latin, dies Mercurii. Languages of Latin origin retain the root: French, mercredi; Spanish, miércoles; and Italian, mercoledì. The Germans call the day Mittwoch, meaning “mid-week.”
So by the time we get to the 10th day of the eighth month which is upon the 31st of the October we see Mercury in the midst of Libra. That is it is in the midst of judgment. The 31st of October is the tenth day of the eighth month in scripture. The day when judgment takes place.
Judgement is what we see in Revelation 8:
1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before Yahuwah, and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before Yahuwah from the angel’s hand.
5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
This is the Day of Atonement as we see in Leviticus 16:12-13 where we also see the golden censor and the incense which we are told is the prayers of the saints. The day of atonement occurs upon the 10th day of the previous month. That is, the seventh month.
12 Then he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from the altar before Yahuwah, with his hands full of sweet incense beaten fine, and bring it inside the veil.
13 And he shall put the incense on the fire before Yahuwah, that the cloud of incense may cover the mercy seat that is on the Testimony, lest he die.
Interestingly, in other languages Libra has the following meanings:
• The gracious branch
Star names in the constellation Libra reflect the same meaning. The Alpha star, or Zuben el Genubi (or Ganabi) means “the balance/purchase/price is deficient.” It is also the root from which the Hebrew word “stolen” is derived.
The Beta star (the uppermost star) is Zuben el Chamali (or Shemali), means “the price which covers”, a word whose root comes into Hebrew as meaning “raiment” or “cloth.” The Hebrew name for this star was Kaphar which means “to cover” or “the atonement.”
In Amos 8:5 we read again about these scales:
5 When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances H3976 by deceit?
The words we see as “the balances” comes from the word mo’zen (H3976) which the Strongs concordance defines as scales or balances.
By now you might be wondering if what we are seeing here is the seventh month and not the eighth. This I am not certain of, but I did note later in this study I found the eighth month spoken of directly which seem to relate to this time as occurring in the eighth month.
So we now move forward to the Gregorian date of the 5th of November. This would be the 15th day of the eighth month. Here we see Mercury has started to move out of the judgment towards the waiting hands of the scorpion.
Likewise, the Sun is about to move within the scales. It appears that judgment is getting ready to be handed down.
One should note that in some locations the Sabbath would be upon the 4th of November and in other locations the 5th (as the Gregorian calendar and the scriptural calendar do not align exactly).
Upon the the 4th and 5th the moon will appear full (Depending upon where you live).
Moving forward another 8 days to bring us to the 12th of November. The 12th of November is the third Sabbath upon the 22nd of the new moon and here is what you shall see. Jupiter and Venus are almost in alignment and the Sun is in the midst of the scales. Mercury is well within the claws of the scorpion.
Interestingly Venus and Jupiter are together here, side by side as well. Venus is referred to as the morning star in scripture and the Jupiter has just been born as the child. (Venus is commonly seen in the morning). One day later Venus and Jupiter are almost indistinguishable from one another being right on top of each other.
So I thought to look through scripture to see it shows a judgment taking place and a scorpion. And I found it in 1 Kings 12. Interestingly this section also speaks of the tribes of Judah and Levi as the tribes were broken into 10 plus 2 tribes.
1 Kings 12:1-15
1 Rehoboam (Solomons Son) went to Shechem (a city), for all Israel had come to Shechem to make him king.
2 Now when Jeroboam the son of Nebat heard about it, he was living in Egypt (for he was still in Egypt, where he had fled from King Solomon).
3 So they sent word and called for him, and Jeroboam and all the assembly of Israel came and spoke to Rehoboam, saying,
4 “Your father made our yoke (burden) heavy; so now lighten the hard labor and the heavy yoke your father imposed on us, and we will serve you.”
5 Rehoboam replied to them, “Leave for three days, then come back to me [for my decision].” So the people left.
6 King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served and advised his father Solomon while he was still alive and said, “How do you advise me to answer this people?”
7 They spoke to him, saying, “If you will be a servant to this people today, and will serve them and grant their request, and speak good words to them, then they will be your servants forever.”
8 But he ignored the advice which the elders gave him and consulted the young men who grew up with him and served him.
9 He said to them, “What do you advise that we answer this people who have said to me, ‘Lighten the yoke (burden) which your father put on us’?”
10 The young men who had grown up with him answered, “This is what you should say to this people who told you, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy, but as for you, make our yoke lighter’—say this to them: ‘My little finger is thicker than my father’s loins [and my reign will be even more severe].
11 And now, whereas my father loaded you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke. My father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions.’”
12 Jeroboam and all the people came back to Rehoboam on the third day, just as the king had instructed, saying, “Return to me on the third day.”
13 The king answered the people harshly and ignored the advice which the elders had given him, 14 and spoke to them in accordance with the advice of the young men, saying, “My father made your yoke heavy, but as for me, I will add to your yoke; my father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions.”
15 So the king did not listen to the people; for the situation was from Yahuwah, so that He might fulfill His word which He spoke through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
We see here a new king has just been set up here to replace Solomon who has just died. This was from that Yahuwah had said to Solomon before He passed away, as Solomon had gone after other gods.
This we find in 1 Kings 11:9-13:
1 Kings 11:9-11
9 So Yahuwah became angry with Solomon, because his heart had turned from Yahuwah Elohim of Israel, who had appeared to him twice,
10 and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he did not keep what Yahuwah had commanded.
11 Therefore Yahuwah said to Solomon, “Because you have done this, and have not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant.
12 Nevertheless I will not do it in your days, for the sake of your father David; I will tear it out of the hand of your son (Rehaboam).
13 However I will not tear away the whole kingdom; I will give one tribe to your son for the sake of My servant David, and for the sake of Jerusalem which I have chosen.”
This new Kings name is Rehoboam and he was to be made King in Schechem.
Rehoboam means “A people has enlarged”.
Schechem means “the back or shoulder”.
When looking through the rest of 1 Kings 12:1-15 we see the people contended here through Jeraboam asking for their burden to be lightened. I recalled at this point reading in Matthew 11:30 “For my yoke is easy and my burden light”. The people were essentially asking for the same yoke to be placed upon them instead of the heaven yoke they had.
When we look to see what Jeraboam means, we find it means “The people will contend”. Very telling.
We then see Rehoboam asking for three days to make His decision and the people leaving. Then Rehaboam asks those who advised His Father – Solomon while He was still alive. Solomon interestingly means peace. I also understand that Shalom means this as well. The advisers of Solomon advise Rehoboam that he should lighten the load of the people. They point out that if he did this the people would then become the servant of him. I find this fascinating as when I look at Yahshua I see someone who lowered himself and became our servant. Healing us, washing out feet – and by that He was lifted up.
To me, the advisors of Solomon here offer similar advise to what we see the Father tell us in the sense that Yahshua tells His people He will Lighten the burden. We see Rehoboam did not want to become the servant and be a King this way, so he went looking for advice elsewhere. He went to the “young of age” people he had grown up with.
I might point something out which I found interesting. We see the word “young” come from the word “yeled” and the words “grown up” come from the word “galal”.
Yeled does indeed mean someone of young age.
Gala however means to become great or to magnify as we see Satan doing in Isaiah 14:13 where he exalts himself.
For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim;
I will also sit on the mount of the appointed times
On the farthest sides of the north;
From this scripture, it could be said that these were young people who exalted themselves perhaps also for we see these young men tell Rehaboam the opposite of what the servants of Solomon said . They say to make the yoke heavy.
They said to say that Rehoboams little finger is thicker than his fathers loins… that is the work load of Rehoboam will be harder than what Solomon gave them.
The other thing I noted was toward the end of this chapter where it specifically tells us this was the eighth month this feast was done.
1 Kings 12:33
33 So he made offerings on the altar which he had made at Bethel on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, in the month which he had devised in his own heart. And he ordained a feast for the children of Israel, and offered sacrifices on the altar and burned incense.
So what was the point of this and how might it tie back into what we are seeing in the stars at this time? You see Rehaboam says that He shall discipline these people with scorpions which is what we see here with Mercury sitting between the claws of the scorpion. Yahuwah tells us not be be afraid of the scorpions. In Deuteronomy 8 He tells us if we keep His commandments, His judgements and His statutes He will guide His people through the wilderness where there are serpents and scorpions.
11 “Beware that you do not forget Yahuwah Elohim by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command you today,
12 lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them;
13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied;
14 when your heart is lifted up, and you forget Yahuwah Elohim who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
15 who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock;
16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you good in the end—
17 then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’
18 “And you shall remember Yahuwah Elohim, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
In Ezekiel 2 we see Ezekiel being told to go the the house of Israel and they have rebelled against Yahuwah. He tells Ezekiel that He is going in amongst the scorpions but they shall not harm him.
1 And He said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak to you.”
2 Then the Spirit entered me when He spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard Him who spoke to me.
3 And He said to me: “Son of man, I am sending you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day.
4 For they are impudent and stubborn children. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says Yahuwah Elohim.’
5 As for them, whether they hear or whether they refuse—for they are a rebellious house—yet they will know that a prophet has been among them.
6 “And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you dwell among scorpions; do not be afraid of their words or dismayed by their looks, though they are a rebellious house.
7 You shall speak My words to them, whether they hear or whether they refuse, for they are rebellious.
8 But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you.”
9 Now when I looked, there was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it.
10 Then He spread it before me; and there was writing on the inside and on the outside, and written on it were lamentations and mourning and woe.
Finally we see in Luke 10 we see the harvest taking place. We see a warning given to those who reject Yahuwah and to those who exalt themselves.
1 After these things Yahuwah appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.
2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.
3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.
4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road.
5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’
6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.
7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house.
8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you.
9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of Elohim has come near to you.’
10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say,
11 ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of Elohim has come near you.’
12 But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city.
13 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14 But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you.
15 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades.
16 He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.”
17 Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”
18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
We have just seen Satan falling from heaven. The same way we see in Revelation 12:13 and then Yahuwah giving His people the authority to trample upon the serpents and scorpions. Here the serpent represents Satan and the scorpion represents people.
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
I pray this study has been useful for you as it has been for me. I am still not certain of any of these things until they occur. Keep praying for guidance.
