Look Up!

We seem to be in a vey intense period of history. It
is like we are being herded in a direction we don't
want to go. This is a longish blog, but I think that
though it is a subject on the heart of many, it is
not discussed much anymore: It is the coming of
Jesus to get His Bride! The hour is late.

You know the story of the Wise Men and how they
watched the stars as indicators of prophetic events.
It was these men, not the religious leaders of the day,
who discovered that a King had been born and they
followed the star. We know today that this star was
made up of Jupiter and Venus. These men had read
Numbers 24:17:
'...a star shall come out of Jacob and a scepter 
shall rise out of Israel...' 

which they connected with Genesis 49:10
'The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a 
lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh (the
Messiah) come; and unto him shall the gathering 
of the people be.'

The first part of the verse was fulfilled when Jesus
came as a babe. The second part of the verse about
the 'gathering' of the people will be fulfilled with
His second coming.

Jupiter is called the king planet and also a scepter.
Leo the Lion in today's language, was called Judah
the Lion. In Isaiah 33:22 the King and the Lawgiver
are seen as the same person.

Scripture is telling us that at some point the planet
Jupiter will be located in the feet of Leo and will
not depart from that place until 'the gathering of 
the people.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:1, Paul uses the same words:
'Now we beseech you brethren, by the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ,  and by our gathering 
together unto him...'

Luke 21:28 has something to say to our generation.
'And when these things begin to come to pass, then
look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption
draws nigh.'

What things? The coming of a world government,
lawlessness, immorality, earthquakes, famine, floods,
disease, terror, war, weather changes. Yes, these
things have always been present, but some of these
calamities are in the news everyday! Jesus says that
when these signs BEGIN to come to pass, look up.
Look up before He reveals Himself.

Look up into the night sky soon after sunset and you
will see a single bright star in the west that becomes
brighter as it gets darker. That star is the planet Jupiter.
When the sky is dark stars near it form a large sickle,
which is the front of Leo and the easiest way to
recognize the constellation. Jupiter will be in Leo until
July 14th when it moves on. It will not be in Leo again
for twelve years.

Last night I checked soon after sunset and Jupiter
was the only visible light in the sky. I stayed up until
midnight to see Jupiter in Leo because the western
sky is bright a long time in this area. God is writing
things for us to see in the heavens: Blood Moons,
Blue Moons, Strawberry Moons, Honey Moons, and
in the stars.

And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of
the heavens to separate the day from the night. And
let them be for signs and seasons....(Genesis 1:14)

Reader, do you not think that if the Wise Men were
alive today that they would be intrigued by what is
happening on earth and with the signs in the

No, we cannot know the day or the hour but Jesus says
we are to know the 'times and the seasons.'

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may 
be accounted worthy to escape all these things 
that shall come to pass, and to stand before the 
Son of Man. (Luke 21:25,26,36)

I am not predicting but sharing what is happening
in the sky right now. None of us know the future,
but we are told to watch and pray. Ask God to show
you what needs to be removed from your life and
to give you a far greater revelation of Himself!

For those of you who wish to explore this further
there is a site where they look at the Bible and
how world events, entertainment, what they are
messaging, and celestial signs seem to be coming
together. It was his blog yesterday that sat me down
to write this. The blog on Matt 24 is helpful.
