The Heavenly Signs of 2018

[Seek him] that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD [is] his name: - Amos 5:8 KJV

Laughing at the Idea

In my previous article, I shared how the earth has been preparing for a birth and that I believe God has called me to be like a doula or midwife and stand alongside the brethren as we await our deliverance out of the prophetic Egypt of the world system by way of the Resurrection/Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 1 Corinthians 15:52-55). 

The earth’s Braxton-Hicks contractions are seen in the exponential increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and hurricanes.  Jacob Israel points out in his September 10, 2018, video that the three storms that have currently been forming in the Atlantic Ocean paint a prophetic picture for us. Florence, meaning “to blossom”, Isaac meaning “laughter”, and Helene meaning “light” could be interpreted as “You will blossom and laugh when the Light comes”.

Remember the Biblical account of Sarah laughing when she heard that she would bear a son in her old age? Sarah’s laughter is a foreshadowing of the name of the child who was to come—Isaac, which means “laughter.” After giving birth to her much-desired son, Sarah explains her experience with God in a play on words: “God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me. . . Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have born him a son in his old age’” (Genesis 21:6-7).

Many laugh at the idea of all these signs pointing to the birth of the “man child” (the Overcoming Church), but it is going to happen for God has promised it (Revelation 12:5)! (For more on who is the “man child”, read A Study of the Man Child and Unsealed’s article Major Discovery Concerning Revelation 12.)

A woman in labor to give birth endures much; but when the child is born, when her “blossom” produces fruit, she “laughs” and rejoices! Jesus Himself spoke of the coming joyous birth of the man child:

Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. John 16:19-21 KJV
Orion Heralds Return of Sirius
Orion, the Coming Prince

Before the storm named Florence clouded up our Mid-Atlantic skies, I was enjoying looking up at the early morning sky and exalting at the magnificence of the constellation Orion with sparkling Sirius just below him near the horizon. This is YHWH’s reminder that OarionThe Prince and Light of the World, is coming! Sirius, referred to in ancient times as The Morning Star, reminds us that His Overcomers have been promised The Morning Star!

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
And I will give him the morning star. - Revelation 2:26-28 KJV

Sign of the Dragon

BEFORE the man child mentioned in Revelation 12 is caught up to heaven, however, first comes a Dragon!

And there appeared a great wonder 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.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; 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 12:1-4 KJV

Gary of did a study and found what may be the heavenly sign of the coming Revelation 12:4 event. Here is an excerpt:

#4 - As someone has already pointed out, the Draconids meteor shower will be at its peak on October 7th and 8th, one week after Shemini Atzeret, and the shower may be particularly spectacular this year since the moon will be almost completely dark.  The prophecy states that the dragon's tail will sweep one-third of the stars of Heaven to the earth.  The stars of course represent the fallen angels (Rev. 12:7–9), but I can think of no better visualization than shooting stars, which look like stars falling to earth.

#5 - The talk of late has focused on the Draconids, but as I was studying this I noticed that three other meteor showers will be happening at the exact same time on October 7th and 8th: the Aurigids, Orionids, and Sextantids (I wonder how rare that is?) and all three will be directly along or in the vicinity of the dragon and its tail. . .

Now let's back up a few weeks to September 11th and the Feast of Trumpets.  At precisely 2:30 AM local time in Israel on Yom Teruah, Comet 21P will leave the boundaries of Auriga—appearing to exit this doorway into Heaven.  Why does that matter?  Because it just so happens that Comet 21P is what causes the Draconids that everyone has been talking about.  It's these meteors that many have speculated represent the stars that the dragon's tail sweeps down.

Side note: It's interesting that Comet 21P was named after its discoverer Michel Giacobini, whom discovered it exactly 43,000 days (inclusive) of this Rosh Hashanah when it comes out of Auriga.  Michel = Michael and Giacobini = an old Italian variant of Jacob.  It's the archangel Michael that kicks satan out of Heaven and satan's descent signals The Time of Jacob's Trouble. . .

2. On Shemini Atzeret (or maybe one or two days later, depending on which calendar you use), just one week before the sign of the dragon, Venus stops...
And where did Venus stop?  Right below Virgo's feet, not that far from where the story left off on November 13, 2017 when Jupiter and Venus had their close conjunction (the meeting "in the air").  For the next approximately 40 days, Venus will appear to travel in reverse along the ecliptic, back towards Heaven.  Could this represent the male child being caught up?

Thus, we can see now that all the key players are in place for the completion of the sign of the dragon.  Revelation 12:4 indicates that the dragon is waiting to devour the child, but after the child's birth in v. 5, the child escapes to safety—caught up by God into Heaven.  The fact that Venus will be under the feet of Virgo, near and parallel with Serpens (the seven heads of the dragon) at the same time as four separate meteor showers are occurring along the path of the dragon, completes the picture.  The dragon is set to strike, but instead the child is caught up and the dragon's stars "fall".

I agree with some of the comments to Gary's article that he has captured the heavenly sign we have been looking for that indicates the actual event is coming. The events of Revelation Chapter 12 are both physical AND spiritual. Just as the September 2017 Sign of the Woman is the heavenly picture of Revelation 12:1-2 and foretells the coming time of Jacob's Trouble--The Tribulation, so does the October 7-8, 2018 sign Gary so eloquently describes foretell the coming casting down of Satan at the time that Planet X affects earth with its destructive force.

Triumphantly the Scriptures proclaim that the dragon is thwarted in his attack of the man child and instead the child is caught up and the dragon's stars “fall”:

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.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne. Revelation 12:4-5 KJV

Revelation 12 Sign Continues

No one to this day can determine the exact hour a child will be born if it is a natural birth. God knows when that life is conceived and when that life will be born (Isaiah 66:9). So, too, only Father God knows when the Overcoming Man Child will be born resulting in the manifestation of the Revelation 12:5 Event.

This is true traditionally of the Hebrew wedding day for #Only the Father knows  when all is ready and sends his son to fetch the bride—another prophetic picture of the harpazo of the Bride of Christ. #No man knows the day and hour is an idiom referring to The Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah. Will the Revelation 12:5 harpazo occur at this year’s Feast of Trumpets?

Scott Clarke is one of many who believe the Resurrection/Rapture of the Overcoming Church will occur on this feast day, but not necessarily this year. Along with Sandy Armstrong of the Soldiers For Christ YT Channel, Scottie presents in his Feast Of Trumpets 2018 | October Surprise video that October is when The Feast of Trumpets should be commemorated this year, not September!

The “last trump” is a phrase that also has become associated with The Feast of Trumpets. In Leviticus 23:24 God called for a festival where there would be a blowing of trumpets but did not define precisely how it should be fulfilled. This zikrown tĕruw`ah was to be a “remembrance memorial” of “sounding an alarm or blast of war or shout of joy”.

At around the 5:00 minute mark of his Rosh haShanah, Rapture, Yom Kippur, Tabernacles video, John Fenn explains where the tradition of sounding a shofar (a trumpet made from a ram’s horn) and not a silver trumpet came from citing Rabbi Eliezer (Pirke De-Rabbi Eliezer). When God provided a ram in substitution for Isaac (Genesis 22:13), the left horn of the ram caught in the thicket is called the “first trump” and refers to when the shofar was blown at Mount Sinai when God dispersed His Word to His people. The right horn of that ram is called the “last trump” and has to do with the resurrection of the dead because Abraham saw Isaac raised from the dead in a figure (Hebrews 11:19).

Will the Bride of Christ hear the trump to call Her home this autumn? It is, of course, possible for we are certainly in the season of the seasonable moment with the converging of world events surrounding Israel, especially President Trump’s speech to the United Nations in ten days when he is to introduce the Mideast peace plan (see The Two-Part Second Coming of the Messiah regarding how this might be associated with fulfilling Zephaniah 2:1-3).

My brethren, be encouraged, for just as Revelation 12:5 prophesies, the man child will be caught up to heaven. This refers to when those “in Christ” will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air:

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up [harpazō] together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. -1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 KJV

P.S. There are probably many more celestial happenings I am not aware of, but I wanted to draw your attention to these. If you would like to understand more about how the heavens declare the glory of God, you will find much encouragement as you read E. W. Bullinger’s book, The Witness of the Stars

Thank you for this post, there's some excellent information here as we all await our blessed hope! Between the heavenly signs you mentioned and everything happening with Israel and the middle east and Trump's soon to be unveiled peace plan and everything else, there's an unbelievable convergence happening that I believe is pointing to our soon coming gathering together in the clouds! I learned about and followed this blog from the latest Revelation 12 Daily blog post ( Maranatha!!
