Signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars, Part Six
By Bob Maffit
I must apologize, as I made a mistake in Part Five. I stated, “Saturn was in the womb of Virgo for one year; from December 3rd, 4000 B.C. until December 3rd, 3999 B.C.” I meant to say, “Saturn was in the womb of Virgo for one year; from September 3rd, 4000 B.C. until September 3rd, 3999 B.C.” Sorry for that. I am being criticized for lack of footnotes proving my points, for that I too am sorry, but time restraints have made it so I have left much out, which I did not want to do. Those who truly know me know I am a stickler for these details normally. Now on with Part Six!
We have seen so much, yet there is so much more to see, and I do not have the time to show it all! We were in Revelation 12 when we finished Part Five. I would love to really get into this section of Scripture, but as I write this, it is August 16th, 2017, and time is literally running out. The U.S.A. eclipse is on the 21st, and the Gathering Together is around the 23rd, of September. So, I have at the most 39 days to get this out. I have page after page of notes, and have prayed to put them together in a way that would make God happiest. So, let us review a little, and look at these verses again.
Revelation 12:1–5 (KJV)
1 And there appeared a great wonder [Sign] in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3 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. 4 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. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up [harpazo] unto God, and to his throne.
Brothers and sisters, verse 1 above has to be about Virgo, or NOTHING we believe is true. This verse is, as many others, which I do not have time to talk about, is about the heavens. These signs have been all but ignored by most Christians, yet they are very important. This type of event recorded in Revelation, only happens two times in history. One at the lineup in Genesis 3:15 [which is past], and the other which occurs next month on September 23rd, 2017. By the time we get to verse 5, we have a, “Gathering Together,” a “caught up [harpazo],” a Rapture,” which is exactly like what happens in 1 Thessalonians 4:17. As we stated in Part Five, this cannot be the record of Christ’s birth, because he never was, “caught up,” to heaven and to the throne right after birth. I am sure the fullness of our, “new birth,” will be completed when Jesus Raptures us out of here. I feel we have seen the importance of the stars of God, and few Bible teachers are touching on that! It is time to prepare for those new bodies, which he promised us! I am excited that I will get to see friends and family members again who have fallen asleep in Christ. Many of you I have talked to, texted, emailed, etcetera, and those of you I have never met in this life, I will finally get to meet, and hug each of you! It is just weeks away and there are still people I want to share the gift of salvation with! Please forgive me, if I am not talking with you like you would like, but I have a ton to do, and as you can see, our time is short. We Christians will have eternity together, and then we will be able to talk and love one another all we want.
I want to add something here, which many others believe as well, it is not just me. You may have seen some television shows [one was 4400], which people were supposedly kidnapped by aliens. This has been joked about, but it is the theme of several Sci-Fi movies also. From what we see about the, “Rapture,” and the devastation involved with it, we feel the Adversary may use something like this kind of story to cover the, “Gathering Together!” His minions could appear as extra-terrestrials to try to cover our disappearance. This will work on many! I say this for those who find this article, after we are gone, and read it. The Accuser will want some other reason for our disappearance, and will not want anyone to think anything like, Jesus Gathered us Together. To distract them, I can see him saying, “They were abducted by aliens,” and that would work for many non-believers.
Now, remember these verses from earlier in the series. They are about the day Christ died! This verse really grabbed me over a year ago. Look at the bolded words.
Luke 23:44 and 45 (KJV)
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
I know since an eclipse is only 2 minutes and 40 or so seconds long, then this was not an eclipse the day he died! My reason is this was three hours, and there was darkness over all the earth, not just in its path, like an eclipse. I have heard others, who feel as I have, and even scientists tracking its path, that it was the planet Nibiru. By the way, I found this planet was first discovered in 1940 by a Chilean Astronomer named Carlos Ferrada. He called it Hercobulus, and gave it the Roman numeral, “X” [for ten, as in the tenth planet]. During the 1950s Sci-Fi people started calling it Planet X! During the 1980s it was given the name Nibiru, which is what most call it today. Remember, these are the stars [and planets] of God. God planned out the stars [and planets], and knows where every one of them is, at any given point. He knew when Christ was going to be crucified! I am not going to cover it all, but the first time they wanted to kill Jesus, the Bible says, well look at the verse:
John 7:30 (KJV)
Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
That verse states, “…because his hour was not yet come.” This has to be true, because of what the Bible shows me. Once his earthly ministry had been established, Jesus told the Pharisees [and others] that they would see, “the sign of Jonah [which I explained in an earlier part].” Then he had to live until his hour came, and God planned, and also carried out, Jesus’ Grand Finale! We need to look at one more verse, which was shortly before his crucifixion; his, “appointed time!”
Matthew 26:18 (NIV)
He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’”
Jesus knew about the sign of Jonah [he foretold it], and that it would be in the heavens. He knew they could not kill him, “…because his hour was not yet come,” and that it would not happen until his, “appointed time!” We feel God planned something much bigger for His Boy, than what He did for Nineveh. In both instances, the sky went dark, but in Jesus’ case, it was for three hours! Now, here is one to blow you away! Remember Luke above? It stated that, “…there was a darkness over all the earth….” We believe it was like night, and you could see the stars after Jesus died, but it was actually day time. This was one of the things which got people to believe who Jesus really was. One reason is that those people were looking up for signs. Well, it will happen for three hours, the day we get, “caught up,” September 23rd, 2017! We will see stars that day before the, “twinkling of an eye.” Wa Hoo! We have some great days ahead! Okay, it will only happen for those living where normally the Sun would still be up, so they will see the stars for three hours, during what would normally be day light. That will still be half the world! WOW!
In Genesis 3:15c, it reads [with my added notes], “…he [Jupiter, representing Christ] will crush your head, and you [Nibiru, representing Lucifer] will strike his heel.” There will be some, “crushing,” going on, and tons of debris, which will be heading towards the Sun. In three and a half years it will hit the earth, and the Sun. Based on Part Four and more by reading the prophetic books about these events, especially Revelation, the U.S.A. will get tons of this debris, more than anyone else. Remember, it will be totally destroyed by the end of the Tribulation. I have heard some grumbling about the destruction of the greatest nation in the world, and believe me, I understand. I gave up a leg, the use of one hand, and more for this nation. I dug in hard and deep emotionally, before ever writing Parts Four and Five, and about the U.S.A. This knowledge has literally changed how I think, and what I do! Folks, facts are facts, and the Great Babylon is going to be toast, and that is where I live! There is something else that I believe now about the April 8th, 2024 solar eclipse; that it also hits Canada, and Mexico, and that they too are in trouble. For what, you ask? For being in bed with the, “Great Prostitute,” by way of the big companies, and so they will also be devastated. The devastation may not be to the extent as the U.S.A., but pretty bad.
Now, I want to share something. Our Enemy and God’s, has had access to God [along with his minions] since the beginning. From the context of the prophetic records about the events we are living in and are about to experience, or at least see, he and his [bad] angels are about to get the boot out of heaven. Then he and his angels are going to run amuck [which is coming up] for seven years [the time of Jacob’s Trouble/Tribulation]. Remember these verses?
Job 1:6 and 7 (NIV)
6 One day the angels [based on a scope of the Bible, here it would be good and bad angels] came to present themselves before the LORD [Yahweh], and Satan [should read Adversary] also came with them. 7 The LORD [Yahweh] said to Satan [should read Adversary], “Where have you come from?” Satan [should read Adversary] answered the LORD [Yahweh], “From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.”
He is not permanently here on the earth, but has been going back and forth! They were not yet, “Fallen Angels,” because they have yet to fall. Let us look at the Dragon [another attribute of the Wicked One], because we switch from the Red Dragon in the first part of Revelation 12, to the Dragon in verse 9. Here is where he and the bad angels lose their access to heaven, and those remaining in the heavens, “rejoice.” My brothers and sisters, this is Revelation 12 right after we get, “Caught Up.” Then, as I said, they have seven years to run amuck!
Revelation 12:9–12 (NIV)
9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. 10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down [now they can be called, “Fallen Angels”].11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. 12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you [he has always come down here, but now it is permanent]! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
The Accuser knows the Bible better than we do, so he knows, “…that his time is short.” He is filled with fury, and that is why he will run amuck! His time is short, because at the end of about seven years he will be locked up for a thousand years. His wild time will start after September 23rd, 2017 [give or take a day], and last until shortly after April 8th, 2024. The only signs you will find in the heavens showing about seven years [the Tribulation] are the two solar eclipses; the first one is August 21st, 2017, and the second solar eclipse of April 8th, 2024. I believe something this big would have signs, and theses eclipses are our only, almost seven year markers in, “the stars of God”. As I said before, the 1,260 days of the first half of the Tribulation, and the 1,260 days of the second half, do not add up [days wise] to seven years. Do the math; 365 days times 7, or 1,260 days plus 1,260 days, and see which is actually longer. It is not the latter! I thank God we will not be here!
There are times when I feel two planets do mean something. I see a few that I feel mean something, which are coming up. I do not want to take the time to talk about those in our past, but we should talk about some future events.
On December 6th, 2017, Mercury and Saturn get very close. Mercury moves up to Saturn, but does not over take him. This is for all the angels to see, and for us to see too. Mercury must have a message for the Enemy, he delivers it, and then he retreats. I am sure it is about the war, because of the next sign. I must add here, that every angel is classified as the hosts of heaven, which is another way of saying army. Just because Michael [represented by Mars] is the Warrior Angel, does not mean Gabriel [represented by Mercury] will not help fight. That is Michael’s expertise, but every angel helps when needed to fight.
Then on January 18th, 2018, Mercury and Saturn meet again, but this time it is different. This time Mercury overtakes Saturn, and then moves on! Remember, this is God’s plan. I feel from everything in the Word on this topic that this may be the day the Adversary and his minions are kicked to earth! Then at the precise moment, Mercury moves on, then Saturn enters Sagittarius [a constellation], which I and others feel is from Revelation 6.
Revelation 6:1 and 2 (RSV)
1 Now I saw when the Lamb [remember this is Christ Jesus] opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say, as with a voice of thunder, “Come!” 2 And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
Many a scholar messes this up, because they do not know this is part of the figure of speech we talked about in Part Five, “Hysterologia.” I was giving you events in Chapter 12, and jumped here to Chapter 6, and here is why! I will quote part of what I wrote in Part Five, “Bullinger stated this section of the book of Revelation Chapters 12 to 15 are parenthetical, and a prophetic record of events, which will take place BEFORE Chapter 6 and will lead up to, and run parallel with what is recorded in Chapters 6 through 11.” So, the events in Chapter 12 take place BEFORE Chapter 6. God is so awesome!
So now, let us go back to Revelation 6: 1 and 2. This is simple when religion stays out of it. Many scholars isolate verse 2 and teach that this is Christ. First, you cannot pull any verse out of context. Verse 1, shows it is the Lamb [Christ] opening the seals. So, they try to teach that verse 2 is Christ. This cannot be true because Christ in the book of Revelation does not get a white horse until the end of the Tribulation, also never does, “…he went out conquering and to conquer.” It is not bad grammar; it is that I used a quote from a verse. We know Saturn moved into Sagittarius the archer! Well, this verse reads, “…and its rider had a bow…,” and again I do not believe in coincidence. I believe that scholars saying this, have never looked at the signs. To pull verse 2 out of context and say it is Christ is a gigantic counterfeit of the Truth. This is the beginning of the Tribulation, and the real Christ gets his horse at the end of it, when he is preparing for the Battle of Armageddon. Here is the Wicked One going, “…out conquering and to conquer,” or as I said, he is running amuck! Saturn spends two and a half years in Sagittarius. Saturn then enters Capricorn [Sea Goat], which is half goat and half fish. This is a picture of the Anti-Christ portrayed by a beast, coming out of the sea (of humanity). As Saturn enters Capricorn it is near the start of the second half of the Tribulation. It is most likely that at this time, the Adversary would be indwelling the Anti-Christ on earth!
On March 26th, 2020, which is the 1st of Nisan, Jupiter [representing Christ] and Saturn [representing the Accuser], begin a back and forth struggle. Then just as they approach each other for the first time, Mars [Representing Michael, the Warrior Angel] passes directly between them. This most likely starts the second half of the Tribulation. This is the beginning of a battle, which continues on until the next sign.
On January 1, 2021, the battle ends when Jupiter finally passes beyond Saturn, then he leaves Saturn behind. Immediately, many celestial objects in the heavens pass over Saturn, because those on God’s team won the battle. It takes a while for each to pass over Saturn, but they do it, one by one! On January 10th, Mercury passes over Saturn. On January 14th, the Moon passes over Saturn. On January 24th, the Sun passes over Saturn. Then on February 16th, Venus passes over Saturn. Only Mars does not pass by or over, so, this means the war is over, and his services as the Warrior Angel are no longer needed! This is almost March 2021, exactly midway through the Tribulation.
Then on April 8th, 2024, is the second U.S.A.’s solar eclipse. The Solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017, was totally unique, in that it covered only one nation. It covered the U.S.A. from border to border, and not just a portion, nor over several nations, but only the U.S.A.! We were singled out, which is one big warning! As I have stated previously with the eclipse of April 8th, 2024, that Canada and Mexico are in trouble. Science says the next Solar eclipse will be in 260 million years, well, I will before we finish this Part show that is not true, but that this will be the last solar eclipse ever! Remember my, “X,” marks the spot comment? I stated that:
Also, it marks [the “X”] where two very big rivers come together [the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers]. Science believes that a major earthquake at the fault center at New Madrid would split the U.S.A. into three pieces [see Rev. 16:19].
The August 21st, 2017, eclipse heralds the beginning of the Tribulation, while April 8th, 2024, heralds the end is coming! With that happening according to the Hebrew Calendar on Nisan 1st, it is correlating with the Feasts. In other words, going with God’s two calendars!
September of 2024, brings fall. The Rapture is the trigger point for the start of the Tribulation, which is fall, and it all ends in the fall of 2024. Jupiter will enter the constellation Taurus. Taurus is the bull, and it represents the Messiah as the coming Judge of all the earth, and the Lord of all the earth. I learned this in several places, but in the Egyptian Zodiac of Denderah, which is 4,000 years old: Taurus means, “Isis,” one who saves or delivers [Talk about counterfeits!]. Taurus has 141 stars, including Pleiades [considered the brain of Taurus], and is called, “the congregation of the Judge, or Ruler.” Pleiades is mentioned in the Bible three times, and is the most mentioned part of any constellation. It is considered a picture of us, as part of the Head. Jupiter will be in Taurus directly between the tips of the horns during the Fall Feast in 2024.
When Yom Kippur starts October 12th, 2024, Jesus will come back as Judge and Lord of all the earth. His feet will, according to the Word, touch down on the Mount of Olives; this will be his second coming! See this verse:
Revelation 1:7 (NIV)
Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.
During the next five days he, with us New Bodied Christians, will fight the Battle of Armageddon. The blood will be as high as the bridle on a horse, for two hundred miles [322 kilometers]. See this verse:
Revelation 14:20 (NRSV)
And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the wine press, as high as a horse’s bridle, for a distance of about two hundred miles.
On October 17th, 2024, [the day the Feast of Tabernacles begins] the Millennial Kingdom starts, which is 1,000 years of peace and justice on the whole earth. This is the time where Christ will reign as King of Kings and Lord of lords for 1,000 years, and we will reign, judge, and rule with him.
Looks like in the fall of 3013, the Millennial Kingdom will start to come to an end. Saturn enters the womb of Virgo on October 7th, 3012, and is in there for one year, until October 7th, 3013. In September of 3013, Jupiter and Saturn meet in the womb of Virgo, and start this back and forth action, going toward each other, and then one will back off, then the other attacks. This back and forth interaction goes on for several weeks. Jupiter finally overtakes Saturn on December 12th, 3013. Then the Adversary will be released from the Abyss. He will build an army to destroy Jerusalem and the Messiah.
Revelation 20:7 (KJV)
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan [the Adversary] shall be loosed out of his prison,
I feel, by the stars, it takes around 20 years for the Adversary to build his army, arm them, and then march across the face of the Earth. Again, in the fall of 3032, Jupiter and Saturn meet again, but this time on the horns of Taurus with Mars between them. This marks the Adversary’s end in the signs in the heavens. Look at these verses, which continue on from the verse above:
Revelation 20:8–10 (KJV)
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil [the Slanderer] that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
It seems unimaginable that after a 1,000 years of life with peace and justice that he could gather a, “…number of whom is as the sand of the sea.” The Slanderer is going to come to an end! Praise God! Many teach that the Seventh Administration is Paradise, but that is only true for Christians with the new bodies fashioned like the one Christ received after he was raised. The Bible teaches people will die during the Tribulation. That does not constitute Paradise in my book! There will be a new heaven and a new earth after that!
Revelation 21:1 (KJV)
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
This is the beginning of the final Administration of Paradise Regained, the Everlasting Kingdom. It starts with a new heaven and a new earth. So, things as we know them will change when we look up. There is more! Look at this verse:
Revelation 21:23 (KJV)
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
This will be one large city! Doing the math will blow your mind! It will be 1,400 miles [2,254 kilometers] by 1,400 miles [2,254 kilometers], by 1,400 miles [2,254 kilometers]. Being that the New Jerusalem will be that big, as that is the length, width, and height, then it appears the normal rules of science, physics, and more [as we now know them now] may not apply. So, in the New Jerusalem there will not be a sun and moon. How about the rest of the world? Read this:
Revelation 21:24 (KJV)
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
This is where Bible commentaries, Bible Dictionaries, and Bible encyclopedias are worthless! They try to talk about people, not nations. There will be nations, such as the U.S.A., which will not be saved, and they may not be the only ones. Those that are saved will walk in the light of the New Jerusalem. Since we are told in the Bible, “a new heaven,” I looked up, “heaven,” in the Greek language, and it says this word is: “noun accusative masculine singular common.” This indicates that whatever God does above in Revelation 21:1, there are no longer three heavens. I do not think we will ever have a sun or moon then. Here is another detail about the New Jerusalem.
Revelation 21:25 (KJV)
And the gates of it [New Jerusalem] shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
What a way to end a verse, “…for there shall be no night there.” From the context of the last two chapters of Revelation, I believe there will be no more sun, moon, or stars. If the light of the city covered the nations that survived the Tribulation, and there is no night there, then why would there be night anywhere? So, the scientists are wrong! There will not be an eclipse in 260 million years, because there will be no sun or moon! And with everlasting life, I plan on finding out how things go!
t looks as if there will not be a place in the heavens for the angels. So, where will they be? I think they will be here with us. This verse, I feel applies here, even knowing the context of 1 Corinthians, because God tells us so little. He did the same with other things, like the Administration we now live in. There is nothing about it in the Hebrew Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV)
However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”—
There is so little in the Bible about the Everlasting Kingdom, but here are a couple more verses from Ephesians, which I feel answer some questions, especially verse 10.
Ephesians 1:9–11 (NIV)
9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ. 11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,
So, we do not have all the answers, but I feel wholeheartedly that we are heading to a place where each Christian will be blessed! Because of feedback, I close with this; if you are interested in stars, but are not a Christian, then read and do this:
Romans 10:9 and 10 (NIV)
9 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
So simple! And once done, you too will be, “Caught Up!”
I have pages and pages of notes, but the Lord is prompting me to stop. This is all that I can share for now. Our Enemy wants to stop this information, and I feel even the Internet may go away. I am sorry I have no time for review! Share freely with everyone!
I am sorry, but the photo I wanted to show you of the Red Dragon is no place to be found. I have over seventy photos of the planet, but none in infrared showing the Red Dragon.
Take this or leave this, just an idea for a closing statement, as I feel you need a loving closure to the series.
God bless you all in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, who is soon to Gather us all that call him Lord, into the air! I pray to see all that read this to be saved and meet me in the air with Lord and all the other Christians!
Love To All, Bob Maffit
