God put His stars in the sky for signs and to indicate times and seasons. This year, the feast of Hanukkah and the whole month of December 2020 is a time when the heavens will be speaking volumes! But in order for a sign to be helpful in indicating what lies on the path ahead, one has to be able to read it. Think of what you do on a journey to a destination—somewhere along the way, you look at the time and work out how much longer the journey will be. If you are in unfamiliar territory, you look for a signboard which will indicate whether you are on the right road and how far it is to where you are headed. The signs in the sky must be viewed in the same way.
Firstly, you must have some sort of understanding of the times. Then, further consultation with the prominent signs along the way will give greater understanding. Everything the Lord has been speaking in the last few months has been warning that the time of Revelation 12 unfolding is speeding closer and closer. The 42 months or 3&1/2 years of persecution by the man of sin and the setup of the beast system are no longer a vague spiritual theory but a looming reality. Let's take a look at what the heavens are saying in the month that lies ahead (or to be more specific, what I am hearing them say, as I am sure there is much more to add).
Firstly, there is a heavenly sign in the form of comet Erasmus (the recent discovery of which was announced on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah 5781) which comes closest to earth on December 13th 2020, the 3rd day of Hanukkah. Comets have always been harbingers or messengers announcing something significant is on the way. Erasmus means 'Beloved' in ancient Greek. Our Beloved Bridegroom is coming soon. Keep looking up, Bride of Christ. Keep your lamp burning.
On December 14th, there are also very significant heavenly signs in the sky. Venus is in the constellation Libra, the scales, indicating that the Morning Star, Jesus, is coming to execute righteous judgments upon the earth. There is also a total solar eclipse in the constellation Ophiuchus; the Restrainer, the one holding back the serpent. This will be seen over South America; specifically Chile and Argentina. A solar eclipse is always a sign of trouble for the nations and a lunar eclipse is connected to Israel. I believe the position of this eclipse in the constellations is signifying that the time of the Restrainer being taken out of the way is at hand. I just want to mention here that it is no coincidence that this eclipse passes over Argentina, as this was the place where Hitler and his mistress spent their last years (please do your own research on this, but suffice to say that the official history that Hitler died in a bunker in Germany is not accurate. There is photographic evidence to the contrary and it is common knowledge in Argentina that he fled there after the 2nd World War, as did many other members of the SS). Once the Restrainer is taken out of the way, the very same antichrist spirit that possessed Hitler will fill his final earthen vessel and rise to wage war on the Church.
Everything in its time
2nd Thessalonians 2 is very clear that our being gathered to the Lord cannot take place until the man of sin is revealed or unveiled and, for that to happen, that which has been restraining this event must be taken out of the way.
2 Thess:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now restrains will restrain, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Read carefully the order of events explained here.—first, the great falling away and the visible appearing of the man of sin because that which restrains is 'taken out of the way'. It does not say 'taken away' but 'out of the way'; depicting the Restrainer stepping to the side i.e. no longer resisting the frantic pushing of this diabolical one coming to power, now that the kairos time has arrived. Some have read into this Scripture that this is the 'rapture' of the church, BUT it clearly says in verse 3 that the man of sin must rise FIRST before we are gathered to Him. The rising of this one who calls himself God is only for a short season, until the Lord consumes him with the breath of His mouth.
Satan cannot indwell this man of sin (like he did with Judas, who was the shadow of the Sun of perdition and also went to perdition) until that spiritual restraint is gone. And please notice that once Judas was possessed by satan, the body of Jesus suffered great tribulation during the scourging and crucifixion and He was finally seemingly overcome on that 14th day of Aviv—the very same type of trial as Daniel 7:21 and Rev 13:7 describe for the endtime church. Yet we know that what looked like the defeat of Christ WAS, in fact, the defeat of satan; it just took waiting until halfway through the 3rd day to prove it! These 3&1/2 days parallel the 3&1/2 years of tribulation. But remember that every time any part of the body of Christ was broken or torn, the sound of the Blood in the earth increased! And Daniel 7:22 describes what the endtime church has to look forward to.
The constellation Opiochus gives the setting; the backdrop, in which the solar eclipse takes place, signifying a time of great darkness falling upon the nations of the earth because of the taking out of the way of this restraining force. Interestingly, the position of the sun when this eclipse happens is in the right knee of Opiochus. Mercury will be closely attending but not visible to the naked eye because of the brightness of the sun. By sunset, the moon, sun and Mercury will be visible in a straight line just above the horizon in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
On this same day, there is also a close conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation Sagittarius, the archer (but they are not yet appearing as one). In ancient mythology, Jupiter (Latin: Iuppiter) was the king of the gods in Roman mythology. He was the god of the sky and thunder. He was known as Zeus in Greek mythology. Saturn is represented as satan, the lord of the rings.
Remember also that Dec 14th is the day the Electoral College vote takes place in USA. This will decide the final outcome of the election. If you recall, I had a vision of a bomb with a long fuse which would explode on December 14th with exceeding violence unleashed.
He Remembers His Remnant
While the last remaining preparations for the unveiling of the man of sin take place, the throne is also very busy with the faithful remnant! Dec 14th is the day when God remembered Noah, the floodgates from above and below were closed and a wind was sent to evaporate the waters. December the 14th is a pivot point— a day the Book of Remembrance is viewed in Heaven; a day there is a release of what is needed to begin the process of returning the remnant to solid ground. The outpouring of the watery agent of judgment is stopped and in its place, a wind is sent to begin the evaporation process.
It is also the day on which the preparation of Esther for her appointment with the king was complete. The next day, she was given freedom to choose anything she wanted to take with her in the form of adornment. Having laid down her own will and desires along the way, she took only what was advised by the chief eunuch. He would know what would please the king's heart. This is the state of heart of the Bridal remnant at this time—"Whatever you say, Holy Spirit, I yield to Your wisdom".
December 16th, 6th day of Hanukkah 5781 this year, is the day Esther was taken to the king and found favor with him. On December 17th, the 7th day of Hanukkah, she was crowned queen and the wedding took place. This depicts an awarding of position and authority to the Bride who has made herself ready—and movement to new spiritual living quarters. And just in time for what is lurking at the door, as we shall see!
The Rising of Darkness
This year, the celebration of steadily increasing light in the Hebrew calendar crashes into a time of dense darkness in the Roman calendar. On the 7th day of Hanukkah, which is 2nd Tevet, the day of Esther's wedding to the king, those who serve satan begin dark festivities. The ancient Romans celebrated a feast called Saturnalia for 7 days from 17th December, culminating on Dec 25th. I find it very significant that, this year, the Festival marking the outpouring of a miraculous supply of oil in the temple, so that it could be continuously lit for 8 days is followed immediately by a feast for the dark side where blood, debauchery and lawlessness prevail. On the day of the wedding in the Kingdom, the celebration of evil personified is launched!
Saturnalia was a time when the Roman god Saturn (satan) was worshiped and ordinary rules were turned upside down. Men dressed as women and masters dressed as servants and human sacrifices were carried out. During this horrific time, (4 days after the end of Hanukkah) on December 22nd 2020, is the winter solstice. It is the shortest day of the year or the day with the longest hours of darkness. This is a minor Sabbath in occult calendars and they conduct blood sacrifices. There are 2 different conjunctions or signs in the sky on this day in 2020, which call us to pay attention:
- The sun will be in conjunction with Mercury, in line with the bow of Sagittarius.
Mercury is known as the messenger and whereas on the 14th Dec, this planet was positioned very close to the solar eclipse, this time, Mercury is close to the sun shining in all its strength—the moon is not obscuring the light of the sun for those on earth. There are two Scriptures which come to mind:
Mal 3:1 BEHOLD, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me.
This speaks of the Spirit of Elijah being released through an endtime Company to prepare the way for the second coming of Christ. This company do not draw attention themselves and to look at them is to see the Sun of Righteousness (their presence does not obscure His light). The light of His presence is seen in them. the positioning of this conjunction on the bow of Sagittarius depicts a placing prior to release of this messenger Company in a time of fiery judgment on the proud and the wicked (read Malachi 3&4) but, for those who fear Him, the Sun of Righteousness, our Bridegroom comes with healing in His wings. Different strokes for different folks! Notice also that the bow of Sagittarius is pointed at the heart of the constellation Scorpio!
Psa 19:4 ...Of the heavens has God made a tent for the sun, Psa 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; and it rejoices as a strong man to run his course. Psa 19:6 Its going forth is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the ends of it; and nothing [yes, no one] is hidden from the heat of it.
- Jupiter and Saturn will also be in perfect conjunction, appearing as one bright star, between the constellations of Capricorn and Sagittarius.
Capricorn is Latin for 'horned goat' or 'having horns like a goat", and it is commonly represented in the form of a sea goat: a mythical creature that is half goat, half fish. Baphomet the god of the Freemasons has a horned goat head and a goat's head is used by Satanist to depict their master. So, here in the region of the goat sea monster, we have the depiction of two 'becoming one'; the infilling of one who will set himself up as king by satan. Notice also that Jupiter and Saturn appear as one star right in front of the mouth of the goat head.
Rev 13:5 And a mouth speaking great things was given to it, and blasphemies. And authority was given to it to continue forty-two months. Rev 13:6 And it opened its mouth in blasphemy toward God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, and those dwelling in Heaven.
Like his Greek counterpart, Zeus, Jupiter was associated with the lightning bolt and eagle. Jesus said He saw satan fall like lightning from heaven. Jupiter was also the son of Saturn in mythology (in other words, this son of perdition is the seed of satan). Another name for this god was Lucetius, meaning 'light bringer', which in Hebrew is Lucifer. He is at times given the title dies pater, meaning 'shining father'.
So, at the time the man of sin is filled with satan and mustering his followers, the remnant company, those sons of oil freshly filled at Hanukkah, are commissioned and positioned to represent the Sun of Righteousness as He goes forth executing righteous judgments. These are the ones Psalm 110 speaks of, who offer themselves willingly and spring forth from the womb of the morning.
Beloved, the signs in the heavens over Hanukkah and the winter solstice confirm to us of what the Spirit has been saying about the 3 &1/2 years when the saints will suffer tribulation. I believe that in the near future, we will see this man of sin arise. It is appointed as a time of refining; of the tribulum being used to thresh the wheat. But the barley remnant has already been harvested, prepared and presented before the Lord of Hosts as His mighty endtime remnant army. He is uttering His voice before them. It is a time when those who are wise shall shine like stars as they hold out the word of Life. Strengthen yourself in the Lord by praying in the Spirit for an extended time daily. We shall overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony and loving not our lives unto death.
Dan 11:32 And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits [for God]. Dan 11:33 And they who are wise and understanding among the people shall instruct many and make them understand, though some [of them and their followers] shall fall by the sword and flame, by captivity and plunder, for many days. Dan 11:34 Now when they fall, they shall receive a little help. Many shall join themselves to them with flatteries and hypocrisies. Dan 11:35 And some of those who are wise, prudent, and understanding shall be weakened and fall, [thus, then, the insincere among the people will lose courage and become deserters. It will be a test] to refine, to purify, and to make those among [God's people] white, even to the time of the end, because it is yet for the time [God] appointed.
