The Sign of the Clay Jug & the Basket

 

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. - 2 Corinthians 4:7 KJV


Beginning especially in 2017 when the Revelation 12 Sign of the Woman occurred, we have been in an intense time of watching for our Lord. Many of us have wondered what God’s timeline is, but I very much appreciate what one Brother said the Lord told him--“It’s not a timeline; it’s a sign line!”

 

And there have been numerous signs in the heavens as well as upon the earth. What has come to my attention lately is the many archaeological signs that have occurred. God seems to have purposely timed these discoveries for they point to the time of Jacob’s Trouble; and, therefore, the End of the Church Age.

 

Let me name just a few. For example, the 1,600-Year Old Mosaic In Northern Israel Depicting End Times Prophecy From the Book Of Daniel. There is no doubt we are in the times that Daniel prophesied about where “many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Daniel 12:4) and we are ready to teeter off into the 70th Week of Daniel or the seven-year Tribulation.

 

From the prophecies of Jeremiah and Ezekiel, some have concluded that King David will be resurrected at the end of Daniel’s 70th week and installed as co-regent over Israel, ruling the Kingdom with Jesus Christ. On July 10, 2019, The Friends of the Israel Antiquities Authority announced that Biblical Ziklag had been discovered at the Khirbat er-Ra‘i excavation site:

 

The famous biblical story of Ziklag relates to David. The Philistines inhabited the town but gave it to David and his men in 1 Samuel 27. The town was attacked and burned and the families taken by the Amalekites while David and his men were away (1 Sam. 30). David mounted a rescue mission and retrieved everyone alive, along with a great quantity of spoil that was distributed to numerous allies in Judah. Source

 

Now the End Begins has a great archive if you want to do some of your own “digging” into all these prophetic archaeological finds, but let’s talk about a recent find discovered two years later at the biblical Ziklag site.

 

The Jerusalem Post reported that a 3,000-year-old inscription was found bearing the name of a biblical judge by the name of Jerubbaal or Yeruba’al--the name given to Gideon who in obedience to God tore down the altar of Baal:

 

An inscription dating back some 3,100 years ago bearing the name of a biblical judge Jerubbaal was uncovered in the excavations at Khirbat er-Ra‘i, near Kiryat Gat in the Southern District of Israel, the Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced on Monday. . .

 

Inscriptions from that period – the 12th-11th century BCE – are extremely rare. All the dating has been carried out through both pottery typology and radiocarbon of organic samples found in the same archaeological layer.

The writing, inked on a jug, marks the first time that the name Jerubbaal has been found outside the biblical text.

The Book of Judges beginning in Chapter 6 tells the story of Gideon and foreshadows the time of Jacob’s Trouble coming to Israel. Also hidden within the story of Gideon I believe is a prophetic illustration of the Rapture of those in Christ.

 

And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years. - Judges 6:1 KJV

And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: [and] because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which [are] in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds. - Judges 6:2 KJV

 

Compare the above verses with those in the Books of Daniel and Revelation telling of seven years of great trouble coming to national Israel and how at the opening of the Seals everyone “hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains”!

 

The Clay Pot and Judgment of Israel

 

After drafting this article, the Spirit of the Lord urged me to go ahead and take the time to watch Todd Adkins’ July 23, 2021, video. Sure enough our dear Brother Todd made the same connections I had related to Judges 6:1-2. But he also pointed to an account in Jeremiah 19 regarding a clay pot and how it also related to the coming judgment of Israel:

 

Thus saith the LORD, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle, and. . . proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee, And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem;

 

Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle.

 

Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;- Jeremiah 19:1-4 KJV (in part)

 

Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee, And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as [one] breaketh a potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury [them] in Tophet, till [there be] no place to bury. - Jeremiah 19:10-11 KJV

 

Israel, of course, is not the only nation to be judged. God will judge all the nations.


Before I delve further into the account of Gideon, I want to share with you another archaeological discovery that I believe ties into this and give Todd Adkins credit for bringing it to my attention. It is the discovery of the oldest intact basket in the world.

 

“As far as we know, this is the oldest basket in the world

that has been found completely intact and its importance is, therefore, immense,”

the IAA said.

 

This basket was discovered in the area of the Cave of Horrors where 40 skeletons of women, men and children were found during excavations in the 1960s. Not only that, but additional fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls were also found:

 

The IAA said the scrolls it found were Greek translations

of the books of Zechariah and Nahum. . .

 

Todd gave some wonderful insights related to this but let me share what came to my mind when I heard of this discovery.

Woman in the basket

 

I remembered the research I had done on Zechariah’s seventh vision of “a woman sitting inside the basket” which I shared in I ASKED THE LORD, WHEN IS THE RAPTURE? HE ANSWERED ME! Here’s an excerpt:

 

video by Godshealer7 End Time Prophecy YT caught my attention this past week. Sister Barbara came out and asked the Lord, “When are we going?” When He answered her, it caused the hair on the back of her neck to stand up. He replied, “When the fire rains down, you’ll come up.”

 

. . . In her video Sister Barbara speculates on what the “fire” might refer to, but I believe it is in reference to nuclear missiles which is what several other believers have been shown. . .

 

Zechariah 5 gives convincing evidence that “fire” refers to nuclear warheads. . .

 

Zechariah describes what he is seeing based on what he is familiar with, but he does not know what he is actually looking at as indicated by the next verse:

 

So I asked, "What [is] it?" And he said, "It [is] a basket that is going forth." He also said, "This [is] their resemblance throughout the earth: "Here [is] a lead disc lifted up, and this [is] a woman sitting inside the basket"; - Zechariah 5:6-7 NKJV

 

Let me bring your attention to the word translated woman. This comes from the Hebrew word 'ishshah which can be translated as woman or fire offering!

 

So you see where Sister Barbara’s prophetic word of the fire coming down could very well be referring to nuclear war.

 

As I said before, many believers have been shown that on the Day of the Rapture missiles, meteors/asteroids, and fallen angels will come down and we will go up! (Related article: The Revelation 12 Galactic Federation, The Great Re:Set, and The Rapture)


Basket of Summer Fruit

 

My first thought when I heard about the ancient basket being found was Amos’ basket of summer fruit which I wrote about in RAPTURE Cut-Off Time 2020:

 

. . . Joel 1:5 speaks of the new wine which is made at the grape harvest. Peter associates new wine with the end of the age when he quotes Joel's prophesy about the coming Day of the Lord in Acts 2.

 

In Song of Solomon 2:11-13 notice that tender grapes are the final agricultural sign mentioned before the shepherd, a type of Christ, says, “Arise, my love...and come away,” thus signaling a possible late summer Resurrection/Rapture.

 

. . . As noted by T. W. Tramm, “Biblically, summer begins at the vernal equinox in March and ends at the autumnal equinox in September.”

 

SUMMER AND ISRAEL

 

While summer in general is associated with the Church, the end of the season—the time when figs and olives are harvested—bears significance for Israel. For instance, in Amos, a basket of fruit that has ripened over the summer is a symbol of Israel being ripe for judgment:

 

“This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: a basket of summer fruit … Then the LORD said to me, ‘The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer’” (Amos 8:12).

 

In Jeremiah, the Jews lament the passing of the summer harvest:

 

“The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved” (Jer. 8:20).

 

While the context of the verse is an ancient judgment, Jeremiah may also be alluding to a future time when Israel sees the Church rescued via the Rapture and comes to the painful realization that they are not saved.

 

In Micah, summer is when the upright people have been swept from the land:

 

“What misery is mine! I am like one who gathers summer fruit at the gleaning of the vineyard; there is no cluster of grapes to eat, none of the early figs that I crave. The faithful have been swept from the land; not one upright person remains. Everyone lies in wait to shed blood; they hunt each other with nets” (Mic. 7:1-2). . . [From theseasonofreturn.com/tw tramm]

 


The Rapture in the Story of Gideon?

 

Now let me share with you where I believe I saw a foreshadowing of the Rapture in the story of Gideon. . .

 

After noticing the parallels between Judges 6:1-2 and the Books of Daniel and Revelation, what next stood out to me in the story was where the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon:

 

And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which [was] in Ophrah, that [pertained] unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide [it] from the Midianites. - Judges 6:11 KJV

 

We are not yet in the seven-year Tribulation but are at the edge of it beginning and we are feeling the oppression of the enemy as Gideon was. At this point in the story, it is after the wheat harvest. Later in the story in Judges 7:13 it tells of the dream of barley bread that represents Gideon and his army.

 

Righteous Gideon and his army are a picture of BARLEY just as those in Christ are considered part of the FIRSTFRUITS of the BARLEY HARVEST associated with Christ’s resurrection. Gideon was threshing WHEAT when the angel of the Lord came to him. Ruth and Boaz--a picture of the marriage of The Bride of Christ to Her Lord--married after the WHEAT HARVEST.

 

When I came to verses 19 and 20 in Judges 7, my jaw dropped and I gasped, “It’s a picture of the Rapture!”

 

So Gideon, and the hundred men that [were] with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that [were] in their hands.

 

And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow [withal]: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon. - Judges 7:19-20 KJV

 

In Judg. 7:19 Gideon and his company came to the camp of Midian "in the beginning of the middle watch," or at midnight.

 

(2.) As representing the terrors of the great day. So the excellent bishop Hall applies it; if these pitchers, trumpets, and firebrands, did so daunt and dismay the proud troops of Midian and Amalek, who shall be able to stand before the last terror, when the trumpet of the archangel shall sound, the elements shall be on a flame, the heavens pass away with a great noise, and the Lord himself shall descend with a shout! blb/Matthew Henry


Matthew Henry here is referring to The Day of the Lord which encompasses the two-part Second Coming of Jesus Christ--

 

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. - 2 Peter 3:10 KJV

 

The Heavenly Bridegroom comes at midnight (Matthew 25:6) with a shout, the voice of the archangel (“voice” is translated from phōnē which can mean “ a sound, tone, as of musical instruments), and the call of a great trumpet:

 

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 together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. . . - 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV

 

At the sound of the great heavenly euphony, our spiritual bodies will break out from our fleshy “clay pots” in a brilliant blaze and with lightning speed meet the Lord in the air!

 

. . . and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Delta Sign



I saw a vision of people slowly and carefully climbing what looked like a very steep rock wall. But I soon realized that it wasn’t a rock wall at all, because in the vision I instantly knew it was the mountain of the Lord.

They thought it was just an ordinary rock mountain which required courage to climb the steep sharp sides. It was popular to climb the mountains in the summer months. I realized that the climbers did not know that they were climbing the Mountain of the Lords Habitation in this New Season.

As I looked closer, I could see that the people that were climbing actually had nothing to reach up to above them. There were no footholds or cracks or crevices to put their hands or feet into. Each move they made had to be carefully thought out and I suddenly realized that they were moving upwards in the vision by faith.


Brethren, is this not where we find ourselves today? This vision given to Susan O’Marra on June 12, 2021, beautifully illustrates walking by faith.

 

Before the Zombie Apocalypse 

 

Earlier this year I warned of a coming ‘Zombie’ Apocalypse due to the Covid-19 plandemic:

 

WHEN does the ‘Zombie’ Apocalypse begin? As Dr. Tenpenny said, probably in 6 to 12 months since taking the vaccine, thus beginning in the Fall of 2021. Dr. Vernon Coleman came to the same conclusion and elucidated further:

 

. . . The people who had the vaccine are going to be in real trouble when they next come into contact with a coronavirus. Their immune systems will overreact and that’s likely to be when there will be lots of deaths.

 

. . . As a result of the epidemic of illnesses and deaths that will take place, Governments will start promoting the next round of vaccinations. There will be much talk of mutations, of course, and new hurriedly prepared vaccines will be produced and heavily promoted. . .

 

Amazingly, I believe that the people behind this fraud were aware that this would happen. It was part of their evil plan.

 

They knew that there would be an increase in deaths in the autumn and next winter. They always planned to blame the deaths on a new version of covid-19 – one of the many thousands of mutations which will be around by the autumn. . .

 

The Summer of 2021 is zipping right along. The end of the Summer could mark the end of the Age:

 

In a previous article I shared the significance of the Sabbatical Cycle and how we are currently in a Shemitah year that will end this Summer of 2021. Remember that Summer is a metaphor of the end of the age:

 

I believe the Books of Joel and Jeremiah AND Amos foretell of trouble coming to Israel at the end of the Summer. [Before the Zombie Apocalypse excerpt]

 

If the time of trouble comes to Israel at the end of THIS Summer of 2021, that means the Rapture of the Church would then have to occur beforehand (see RAPTURE Cut-Off Time 2020). Much is pointing to this year, specifically the Hebrew year 5781, as very possibly being Israel’s “last chance” before the Rapture and especially because Summer of 2021 concludes a Sabbatical cycle along with the conclusion of the Summer harvest. Luis B. Vega has said that when the 7-year last Week of Years per Daniel is to start, it must start with a new Sabbatical Cycle. He proposes a possible Autumn 2022 start for Daniel’s 70th Week (October 18, 2022, on his chart); HOWEVER, Lu agrees that a 2021 Rapture would be in order with his findings (see his Postscripts #434). He believes “the last Sabbatical Cycle to conclude the ‘Building of the Bride’ would be in 2021 (see Postscript #119).


Year of the Delta

 

 

Brother Chooch presents The Pyramid Symbolism - Hidden In Plain Sight ]

 

Have you noticed how much delta-related things we’ve been exposed to?

 

Delta definitions:

 

Ø  an object shaped like an equilateral triangle

 

Ø  the 4th letter of the Greek alphabet


Ø low triangular area of alluvial deposits where a river divides before entering a larger body of water; "the Mississippi River delta"; "the Nile delta"


The shape of the letter Delta in the Greek alphabet is a triangle. We have been subjected to videos of (not in order of occurrence): flying triangular pyramid UFOs--oops, I mean UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon); the Pope performing a ceremony at a pyramid/ziggurat; grand parades including the BET awards all with an Egyptian theme emphasizing...pyramids!

 


The pyramid is central to the Illuminati Luciferian scheme. As those who are in Christ near the exit of the Resurrection/Rapture, it is to be expected that we would see this ramping up of signaling in the Satanic realm.

 

The river deltas of the Mississippi and the Nile both have prophetic implications for the end times. In The Horror of Darkness and the Everlasting Covenant there are prophecies mentioned of a coming great earthquake along the Mississippi; and the Nile is, of course, a significant river in Egypt. The world is Egypt and those who are in Christ will be delivered out from it!

 

Now the mainstream news media is trumpeting the message of a Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus. Biden plans on “sicking his hounds” on those who have yet to succumb to his sorceries/pharmakeia agenda. On July 1, 2021, it was announced that Biden to Send Response Teams to Fight Spreading Delta Variant:

 

The Biden administration is sending response teams to unvaccinated pockets of the U.S. in an attempt to combat the spread of the highly transmissible delta Covid-19 variant.

 

In his July 18, 2021, Prophecy Update, J. D. Farag shares the truth regarding this so-called Delta variant and gives much-needed answers and encouragement to those whose jobs are being affected by employers mandating the vaccine.

 

Those of us who are aware of the time we live in knew things were not going to get better. Indeed, things have only gotten worse. Here are two accounts from Brothers in Christ where I believe God showed them the timing of the True Church’s deliverance from this our Egypt.

 

Revival and Wilderness

 

Sam left me a Comment at the Rev12daily blogsite sharing a detailed dream which I believe is related to the hour we are now in. I want to share only a part of it here:

 

Sam June 25, 2021 at 4:01 PM

@LynMelvin: Hey sister, I've been following your blogs for a while now. I have a dear friend and brother in Christ of several years who just had this peculiar dream that lines up with some things I've seen on your blog. Note that he doesn't stay on top of all the tribulation theories or keep up with the news, ergo why I think this is so significant. . .


. . . I saw groups of Christians riding horse and carriages out into the wilderness. They were hiding, stranded away, or something. They were just being there for one another again. I went to unload a carriage to get something to help people and I heard screaming and shouting. We thought "they" had found us. Who "they" is I don't know. When I looked up on the hill overlooking our campsite I saw people pointing in the sky screaming. I turned to look and was instantly transported up onto the hill / small mountain, and I saw the stars in the sky all shift and move. All the suns in the universe moved and realigned to form a giant cross pure white glistening burning bright and even in my dream I felt the Holy Spirit so strongly that I was overwhelmed and filled with joy and also the Fear of the Lord, and I trembled in my dream so much when I woke up I trembled and felt Him still and heard His voice say "Behold I am coming". Not going to claim when, not going to claim how, where, etc
I dozed back off and the dream continued. . .

Part of my reply to Sam was:

 

. . . In His great mercy, we will soon be entering the time when people will be saved "with fear" as Jude 1:23 says.

Just prior to the Rapture there will be GREAT SALVATIONS AND PERSECUTION because “Persecution and revival go hand-in-hand,” but before "they" come for us to force their pharmakeia agenda on us, HE WILL COME FOR US! Because there has never been a TRANSITIONAL TIME that parallels this, we will be like PIONEERS (thus the riding horse and carriages out into the wilderness). Those left behind will be terrified for many reasons especially if the Rapture occurs simultaneously with the "sudden destruction" of 1 Thess. 5:3. . .

(To read the dream and my reply in entirety, go to Rev12daily.blogspot.com.)


This Brother’s dream is pertinent for he received it prior to the announcement that the Biden administration is sending response teams to unvaccinated pockets of the U.S. I believe this may be who the “groups of Christians riding horse and carriages out into the wilderness” were hiding from in the above dream. Just yesterday Now the End Begins reported that MASSACHUSETTS FIRST IN NATION TO IMPLEMENT COVID K-9 UNIT WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION CAN COVID ARRESTS FOR THE UNVACCINATED BE FAR BEHIND? In the near future they might literally “sick the hounds” or German Shepherds on those who are unvaccinated--another good reason for “groups of Christians riding . . . out into the wilderness”!

 

The dream also included a revival occurring that was a mixture of the true and the false. To me this dream seemed to indicate that at the time the Christians entered the wilderness, Christ said He was coming.

 

Before sharing the next Brother’s dreams, here is another excerpt from Susan O’Marra’s vision of the climbers:

I watched as one particular man who was struggling with extreme tiredness, and he decided to reach up anyways by sheer determination, and suddenly a small rock appeared on the side of the mountain above him that he could grab onto to pull himself up to. He breathed a sigh of relief and moved up to see the rock that was not there before. He then grew in courage and reached up above himself again and I saw another rock appear and he felt around till he found it, and he raised himself up again. I saw his tiredness leaving him as his faith and courage grew. He smiled and laughed as he realized that he just had to believe they would be there. He began to shout as he continued to reach upwards as he went, and just like before, the small rocks appeared just when he needed to find one. . .

 

Beloved, we may not see what our next step is with this overreach of government pushing the experimental jab so we must TRUST our God and, as 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us--REACH forth in faith NOT BY SIGHT just as the mountain climber did!


 

Rapture Flight on Delta?

Okay, now it gets really good.

Between the 7- and 13-minute mark in his June 29, 2021, video, our lovable long-winded Brother Patrick Winfrey, a pastor who ministers in the Philippines, shares how for years he has had Rapture dreams centering around him trying to reach the airport. He always reached the airport on time and always flew out on Delta Airlines. DELTA Airlines.

 

What is the name of the supposed new Covid-19 variant? DELTA!

 

Wanting to be honest, Patrick admitted that in real life he usually did fly by way of Delta Airlines but wondered out loud if the Lord was also showing him that the Rapture would happen around the time of this Delta Covid-19 Variant being promulgated?!

In the menorah pattern the 4th stem represents Pentecost.
The Hebrew letter dalet ד represents Door and the no. 4.
MENORAH HIDDEN MEANINGS
Jesus IS the Event Horizon

 

As mentioned above, Delta is the fourth letter in the Greek alphabet. In the Hebrew language the number 4 is represented by the letter dalet ד which represents the ‘Door’.

 

After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven:

and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me;

which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. - Revelation 4:1 KJV

 

I Believe 2021 is the Year of Our Wedding and that our ‘flight’ departure will be via DELTA Airlines!


Delta = Change

Delta Symbol: Change

Uppercase delta (Δ) at most times means “change” or “the change” in maths. Consider an example, in which a variable x stands for the movement of an object. So, “Δx” means “the change in movement.” Scientists make use of this mathematical meaning of delta in various branches of science. [From toppr.com]

In the military, the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment–Delta (1st SFOD-D), commonly referred to as Delta Force, is a special operations force of the United States Army. The unit is tasked with missions primarily involving counter-terrorismhostage rescuedirect action, and special reconnaissance. The US Department of Defense has defined direct action as “Short-duration strikes and other small-scale offensive actions conducted as a special operation in hostile, denied, or politically sensitive environments and which employ specialized military capabilities to seize, destroy, capture, exploit, recover, or damage designated targets. . .”

When the Bride of Christ is raptured, it will be a type of Delta Force direct action for the Lord will quickly come and “seize” Her “rescuing Her like a hostage” who is in a “hostile environment”!

I knew “delta” was seen in math and science, but wasn’t sure precisely how it was used until Brian W. left this Comment:

I can’t help but think of how “delta” is also used in math and science as either direct terminology for ‘change’ or as a shorthand way of noting it. The world will soon witness a great delta and wish for the days of the past 1.5 years. Those secure in Jesus’ arms will also witness a great delta. “We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be [delta’d], in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.”

The Sceptre Star and the Revelation 12 Birth of the Man Child

 


Will you prayerfully and with discernment come along with me as I share a recent journey I took on a train of thought regarding the Day of the Rapture and the Sceptre Star?

 

What is the Sceptre Star?

 

First, Daniel Valles of Informed Christians YTC’s video Seeing The Sceptre Star Story got me investigating the question of “what is the Sceptre Star?” Like many other Biblical researchers, Daniel believes that the Sceptre Star is the planet or wandering star of Jupiter, the prophetic symbol of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church. He explains that since 1948 and until this last generation, Jupiter will do its retrograde pattern ONLY ONCE as described in Genesis 49:10. This occurred, as many know, in 2017 and centered around the September 23 Revelation 12 Sign of the Woman.

 

He suggested that the Rapture or Birth of the Man Child could occur when Jupiter was in retrograde in June 2021 or apparently standing still as did “the star” over Bethlehem pointing the magi to the location of the newborn Messiah. From approximately June 13-27 this year Jupiter stood still for the first time since the December 21, 2020, Great Conjunction!  

 

Our Brother Daniel’s theory seemed feasible based on Jupiter as the Sceptre Star. It is unfortunate his theory did not pan out; HOWEVER, his explanation that Numbers 24:7 was playing out before us could be pointing to an imminent revival or awakening for the constellation Aquarius appeared to be pouring buckets of water upon Jupiter standing still at the belly of Aquarius.

He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed [shall be] in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. - Numbers 24:7 KJV


Numbers 24 might be giving a prophetic picture confirming the visions I received that there would be a brief revival then the Rapture for in Verse 8 it reads:

 

God brought him forth out of Egypt. . .- Numbers 24:8a KJV

 

Could the Sceptre Star be a Comet?

 

Because the Resurrection/Rapture did not occur during the time Jupiter stood still in June 2021, this led me to ask the question--“Could the Sceptre Star be a comet?” While surfing the web I came across a theory that speculates on this question. Let’s look at verses pertaining to this.

 

The Jewish nation is composed of twelve ancient tribes. Jewish prophecy states that a particular tribe will bring forth the Messiah: the tribe of Judah. The symbol of Judah’s tribe is the lion. You can see these connections in an ancient prediction of Messiah’s coming found in the first book of the Bible, the Book of Genesis, Chapter 49:

9 You are a lion’s cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness– who dares to rouse him? 10 The sceptre will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.

            [bethlehemstar.com excerpt]

 

In the King James Version Verse 10 reads:

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him [shall] the gathering of the people [be]. - Genesis 49:10 KJV

 

ROBERT JAMIESON explains in his commentary that Judah was the chief among the tribes and that Messiah sprang from it. Shiloh refers to “the Messiah (Isa 11:10 Rom 15:12 ); and when He should come, ‘the tribe of Judah should no longer boast either an independent king or a judge of their own’ [CALVIN]. The Jews have been for eighteen centuries without a ruler and without a judge since Shiloh came, and ‘to Him the gathering of the people has been.’”

 

The Sceptre Star is also mentioned in the Book of Numbers when Balaam is prophesying over Israel:

 

I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star [ā] out of Jacob, and a Sceptre [šēe] shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. - Numbers 24:17 KJV


In another Commentary by ROBERT JAMIESON he writes, “this imagery, in the hieroglyphic language of the East, denotes some eminent ruler--primarily David; but secondarily and pre-eminently, the Messiah (see on JF & B for Ge 49:10)”.

 

Both in Genesis 49:10 and Numbers 24:17 the word ‘sceptre’ was translated from the Hebrew word šēe which means “rod, staff, branch, offshoot, club, sceptre, tribe”. This is where one might interpret šēe as referring to a comet for in antiquity, a comet was perceived as a sword/scimitar, sickle or staff:

So we cannot expect to find in the Scriptures definite and precise descriptions that we can recognize as those of comets. At the most we may find some expressions, some descriptions, that to us may seem appropriate to the forms and appearances of these objects, and we may therefore infer that the appearance of a comet may have suggested these descriptions or expressions.

The head of a great comet is brilliant, sometimes starlike. But its tail often takes on the most impressive appearance. Donati's comet, in 1858, assumed the most varied shapes—sometimes its tail was broad, with one bright and curving edge, the other fainter and finer, the whole making up a stupendous semi-circular blade-like object. Later, the tail was shaped like a scimitar, and later again, it assumed a duplex form. [gutenberg.org]


Donati's Comet over Notre Dame

What comes to mind when you picture šēe --a celestial sceptre, staff or sword? Although he was off by three years (in my opinion) Bible scholar Colin R. Nicholl who authored THE GREAT CHRIST COMET believes that what the wise men or magi followed was a comet. He may be onto something here since Jupiter, even when in conjunction with other celestial bodies, may not have been as brilliant nor as animated as the Scriptures depict the Sceptre Star.

 

A key reference in Nicholl’s book is found in a 1st-century letter from St. Ignatius to believers in Ephesus: “A star [shone] in heaven (with a brightness) beyond all the stars; its light was indescribable, and its newness provided astonishment. And all the other stars, together with the Sun and the Moon, formed a chorus to the star, yet its light far exceeded them all. And there was perplexity regarding from where this new entity came from, so unlike everything else (in the heavens) was it.” [From The case for a great comet over Bethlehem by Terry Mattingly posted Dec 22, 2015]

 

Was the Star of Bethlehem a Comet?

 

Why did the Magi believe that the astronomical phenomenon they observed signified the birth of the Messiah?

 

As many scholars of Matthew have correctly deduced, the Magi were most likely exposed to key Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah through Jewish neighbors. Through such messianic prophecies they came to interpret the astronomical body as revealing that the Messiah’s birth had taken place. What the Magi say in Matthew 2:2 seems to allude to the oracle of Balaam that spoke of the Messiah’s coming in terms of a “scepter” and “star,” implying that a scepter-like comet would announce his birth (Num. 24:17). The Magi appear to have come to the firm conclusion that the Star had fulfilled Balaam’s oracle on a literal level. Their choice of gold, frankincense, and myrrh as gifts (Matt. 2:11) suggests that they were also influenced by oracles in Isaiah (especially Isaiah 53 and 60). I argue that the Magi interpreted what the Star did through the lens of Isaiah 7–9 (esp. 7:14 and 9:2).

 

What did the Star “standing over” the place where Jesus lay look like?

Matthew says that the Star “went before” the Magi as they traveled from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and then finally “stood over” the place where Jesus was. Similarly, historian Diodorus Siculus records that a torch-like comet “went before and led” Timoleon from Corinth to Sicily. And Josephus reveals that a great cometary star that looked like a sword “stood over” Jerusalem in the run-up to its destruction. Josephus and Matthew both seem to be referring to comets that appeared to stand near-vertically over the horizon as they set.

 

When comets do this, they may readily be perceived to be pinpointing a particular location along the visible horizon, as the standing Star was evidently regarded as doing. At the time this occurred the Magi, then in Bethlehem, must have been located the other side of the house from where the comet was. Rejoicing, they entered the house and, as they’d suspected, discovered there the baby Messiah.

 

Revelation 12 and the Sceptre Star

Whether the Sceptre Star is Jupiter or a Comet, the magi would have known to be looking for the Sign in the constellations Leo and Virgo. According to Rick Larson’s theory,  “It was the precise interaction of the planets with these two key constellations that the “wise men” were tracking as they made their way to Bethlehem.”   


 

I do not doubt the importance of the planet Jupiter, the King Planet, and its retrograde action depicting a child in the womb of Virgo, the Woman, when referring to the fulfillment of Revelation 12:1-2 on September 23, 2017:

 

Three separate studies have shown that the September 23rd alignment is a once-in-human-history event.

 

Many have argued that Rosh Hashanah of 3 BC (September 11th) also featured the sign as evidence Christ was born that day, but this only gets two things right: the sun clothes the woman and the moon is under her feet.  There is no crown of twelve stars, the moon is very far away, and she is not giving birth to a "male child". [The Revelation 12 Sign Compendium unsealed.org excerpt]



So what I am suggesting is, could there have been a comet that appeared in the constellation Leo or Virgo and moved in such a way as to guide the magi?

Nicholl joins a long tradition of scholars who have written about Bethlehem’s star. Through the centuries, they have proposed a variety of answers to the question of its nature. Some have proposed that it was a star, of course. Others, the triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Pisces in 7 B.C. Occultations of Jupiter in Aries in 6 B.C. is a more recent suggestion, as are either a nova or supernova. Meteors get mentioned. Some think it may have been a supernatural phenomenon such as a mystical vision or an angel. . .

. . . Nicholl affirms the historicity of the Gospel account of Jesus’ birth. He further argues that a comet can account for the star’s seemingly erratic behavior, appearing first in the eastern morning sky, then months later in the western and southern evening skies. Depending on the observer’s perspective, he points out, a comet can appear to stand still over a particular location as it speeds toward the nighttime horizon. influencemagazine.com

We may never know until we meet Christ face to face, but I promise that I have a reason for bringing this question up if you will hang in here a little bit longer.

 

Comet, Asteroid, or Meteor?

 

Going to the account in the Book of Matthew regarding the travels of the magi, we see that the word ‘star’ was translated from the Greek word, astēr, from which we get our word ‘asteroid’.

 

When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star [astēr], which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him. . .- Matthew 2:9-11a

 

Comet, asteroid, meteor? My ears perk up whenever any of these terms are used because they are interrelated. Debris from comets is the source of many meteoroids and meteoroids originate from a comet or asteroid.

 

Paul Begley shared recently how the Lord said to him, “Everybody wants to know the timeline but it’s not a timeline it’s a SIGN line.” Comets especially have been used by God as signs (see Perry Stone Comets).

 

It is intriguing to me that especially beginning with Comet Neowise in July 2020 there have been so many asteroids and in particular comets being tracked. According to an article by nature.com, astronomers detected thousands of previously unknown near-Earth asteroids last year and skyandtelescope.org reported “an amazing 116 new comets were discovered in 2020, of which Neowise was one and dubbed a “Surprise” Comet. Political scientist and amateur astronomer Luis B. Vega writes of end time events and suggested it could be prophetically the Rapture Comet:

 

As to the possible prophetic implications of this comet and its trajectory? That remains to be seen. But with the prior 2 other comets, Atlas and Swan, perhaps this comet is contributing to the celestial tapestry of messaging that could be prophetic nonetheless concerning the Rapture.

 

2020-2021 Comet SIGN Line

 

At the beginning of 2021 Forbes posted Should We Get Ready For Another Naked-Eye ‘Comet Of The Century?’ ‘Comet Leonard’ Just Appeared From Nowhere. EarthSky had this to say about Comet Leonard:

 

Bottom line: Comet C/2021 A1 (Leonard) – discovered on January 3, 2021 – is currently between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars, heading inward. It’ll reach perihelion, its closest approach to the sun, around January 3, 2022. We’ll have a whole year to watch this comet get brighter and brighter. It might become the brightest comet of 2021!

 

According to its trajectory, Comet Leonard is not supposed to hit Earth but it might hit Venus!


 

In a more recent video by Data1B4, we are told that Comet Leonard will never pass this way again. In fact, “Know that you are the generation,” the narrator proclaims, “of the only people in the history of planet Earth that will see this particular comet. . .”

 

The name “Leonard” “means ‘brave lion’, derived from the Germanic elements lewo ‘lion’ (of Latin origin) and hard ‘brave, hardy’. If 2021 is the Year of the Rapture (and I believe it is) it will also be the Year of The Brave Lion of Judah!

 

“Know that you are the generation

of the only people in the history of planet Earth

that will see this particular comet. . .”

 

In the video BIGGEST RAPTURE SIGN Genesis 49 Comet 323 the SHILOH SCEPTRE that's NEVER moved in HISTORY Until NOW a Brother in Christ shared the impression in his spirit that “When the Summer hits, you will know whether it is the Season of His Return!” He shares how Comet 323P has never moved from its location until 2020. Although I am unsure as to the veracity of his conclusions regarding this comet being the Sceptre Star, it still has prophetic significance.

 

While on this trail of thought doing research, I began to connect a number of sources with what the Lord has shown me and others related to the Day of the Man Child’s birth.

In my humble attempts to collate so many different dreams and visions, it came to me that it is possible that when a Brother or Sister in Christ is describing a brilliant star-like object and using either the term “comet” or “asteroid”, they could be speaking about the same event but are using closely related terms.

 

This also may be the case with Hollywood which has pumped out numerous movies getting the world prepared for the coming of destructive meteors, asteroids, and comets. Before Hollywood ‘foretold’ this, the Book of Revelation warned of it. The earth will be besieged by falling celestial objects during The Tribulation.

“It’s a planet that’s been hiding behind the Sun.”

 

Melancholia, a depressing NOT family-friendly movie about a bride who marries as a mysterious planet looms, blatantly reveals that the public will never be told the truth regarding this. (YES, I did say "bride"!) Recently the science community and mainstream news admitted that a comet-like planet was heading towards our Solar System. (Related articles: The Revelation 12 Dragon and The Rapture and Planet X, Passover, and Pentecost 2021)

 

"There is one thing that scientists and Scriptural scholars are in agreement on--that a large celestial object is coming our way which in turn is causing asteroids and comets to be thrown out of their normal orbits." Skywatch Media News YTC (emphasis added by me)

 

Why bring up the possibility of a comet being the Bethlehem Star?

 

As is explained in The Revelation 12 Sign Compendium by Unsealed, the story told in Revelation 12 may unfold in the near future: 

. . . Just as the woman and the dragon have corporate meanings, the child follows the same pattern. . . In summary, the significance of the Revelation 12 sign may be the rapture of the Church, the beginning of the cosmic war in Heaven, and God's redemptive focus returning to Israel and the Jews (Micah 5:3).

 [The Revelation 12 Sign Compendium excerpt]

 

A little over nine months before we witnessed the Revelation 12:1-2 Sign of the Woman there was a sign within the Sign in the way of the Conception Comet, a study of which was done by Luis B. Vega. (See Rev12daily's blog article for further information on this comet.)


"Do you see what I see?"

 

Do you see what I see? God has sent us a Comet Sign Line consisting most notably of: (1) the Conception Comet associated specifically with the Revelation 12 Sign of the Woman giving Birth to the Man Child; (2) the Surprise Comet Neowise ‘prophesying’ the coming Rapture, (3) and now Comet Leonard or the Brave Lion Comet!

 

FINALLY, TO THE POINT

 

So the reason I am bringing this subject up is because of the prophetic voices who have spoken of a GREAT COMET that will be heading for the earth on the Day of the Rapture. To keep it brief, I will share only a couple of the most compelling accounts, but you may also want to listen to the videos by Robin - Figtree generation and NessaSmart08.

 

In The Revelation 12 Dragon and the Rapture I shared Bob Barber’s video MY VISION! OUR LAST DAY! DRAGON ARRIVES! WE DEPART! In this vision he sees a series of events that include him seeing (what he thought was) Planet X, UFOs, and nuclear war breaking out on The Day of the Rapture.

 

Bob was forced to remove many of his videos from his Youtube account, but I found his video reposted on Vimeo.

 

Near the second half of 2020 Bob shared how the Lord corrected his interpretation of the above vision telling him it wasn’t Planet X he saw in the vision but a COMET heading toward Earth! Whether it is a comet or Planet X dragging a tail of asteroids, the world governments are definitely anticipating some type of catastrophic impact. (Remember God has revealed three categories of what will be “coming down”-- missiles, asteroids/meteorites, and fallen angels. [from The Revelation 12 Galactic Federation. . .]

 


 

If this is truly what will happen, the birth of the Revelation 12:5 Man Child would parallel the marking of the birth of the Son of man but instead of the astēr/comet “standing over the house” it will be a comet violently marking the removal of the House or Temple of God--a.k.a. the Rapture of those in Christ (1 Corinthians 3:16)!

 

It is possible that the prophetic dream I had some years ago was of a comet that would precede or come simultaneously with the Lord rapturing us. Recently I came across BETHLEHEM STAR RAPTURE! Amazing Dream! and it was reminiscent of my dream:

 

. . . I then saw a brilliant white light like a huge star, appear overhead. "It's time! He's here!" I shouted with sheer delight as a feeling of exhilaration filled my being and I jumped into the air in anticipation but was not yet taken up and then the dream ended. 3 Planets Dream and Reality

 

Asteroid to cause tsunami?

 

If my deliberations are correct, it would explain why so many brethren have foreseen a tsunami coming to the coast of America at the time of the Rapture. I also was given a series of tsunami dreams, however, I was not shown them in relation to the Rapture:

 

The Spirit of the Lord never gave me a time or date when this was to occur, however, a brother in Christ who lives in Puerto Rico, Efrain Rodriguez, was given the time of day when an asteroid will strike the Atlantic Ocean just west of Puerto Rico causing a series of catastrophic events. . . Brother Efrain did say that the asteroid strike will occur PRIOR TO THE RAPTURE. That it is not the end of the world nor is it part of the Great Tribulation but it is imminent. The U.S. government knows of this but have quietly been making preparations. [from The Final Tsunami Warning?]

 

Efrain believes the asteroid will strike prior to the Rapture, HOWEVER, Bob Barber (End Time Dream and Vision YTC) in his October 16, 2019, video stated that in the collective of tsunami dreams/visions he has gathered, the Rapture occurred at the time the great wave hit!

 

A prophetic word through Kevin Mirasi came the closest to what I received from the Lord in that he doesn't know whether the rapture is immediately during the tsunami or shortly after. There has been an exponential increase in meteors, so it is entirely possible that Earth will be struck by some type of comet or asteroid on the Day of the Rapture as Bob Barber and others were shown.

 

July Surprise Comet(s)?

 

Eleven days after I posted I Believe 2021 is The Year of Our Wedding suggesting the Rapture might occur during the New Wine Festival (which in this Hebrew year falls in July 2021), fivedoves.com posted "17 Tammuz, 9 Av, New Wine Festival/Pentecost, Nine Days, and Three Weeks - High Watch Time". In this article they point out that should the Rapture indeed occur this July it would line up with the Micah 7:1-2 prophecy.

 

Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: [there is] no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. The good [man] is perished out of the earth: and [there is] none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. - Micah 7:1-2 KJV

 

Could God have sent the JULY 2020 SURPRISE Rapture Comet to signal a JULY 2021 SURPRISE Comet on The Day of the Rapture?

 


 

But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. - Hebrews 1:8 KJV


With “asteroids and comets being thrown out of their normal orbits,”  I submit to you, dear Brethren, the possibility of a comet coming that will SURPRISE everybody and may be part of the “sudden destruction” of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 that “they” do not escape, but WE DO!

 


 

When the King extended his sceptre to Esther it was to show his favor and resulted in him granting her wish. Could it be that on the Day of the Rapture, a Comet or Sceptre Star, will be extended toward us, the Bride, thus granting our greatest desire--to be with our KING forever!
