"Constellations, Warships, and Whirlwinds, Oh My!"
Skywatchers who are out during the late evening hours on Sunday (Feb. 20 2011) with clear skies will have an interesting celestial triangle to admire, composed of Saturn, the moon, and a bright star, spica.A nearly full moon, accompanied by the planet Saturn, shining sedately with a yellowish-white glow well above and to the left of the moon. Hovering below and to the left of the moon will be the bright bluish star Spica, located in the zodiacal constellation of Virgo.According to the website lightfolk.netAncient Israel's fondness and devotion for the false god Saturn (et. al.) is well documented within the Word of God.Saturn has traditionally been associated with the Jews, or a deity the Jews worshiped that is represented or ruled by Saturn. In Amos 5:26-28, we read the LORD God's judgment on the Jews for worshiping the hosts of heaven:
"Did you bring to me sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You shall take up Sikkuth your king, and Kiyyun your star-god -- your images that you made for yourselves, and I will send you into exile beyond Damascus," says the LORD, whose name is the God of hosts.
This text is repeated in Stephen's address to the Sanhedrin, recorded in Acts 7, beginning at verse 39:
"But our fathers refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt. They told Aaron, 'Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt -- we don't know what has happened to him!' That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and held a celebration in honor of what their hands had made. But God turned away and gave them over to the worship of the heavenly bodies. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets:
'Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings
forty years in the desert, O house of Israel?
You have lifted up the shrine of Molech
and the star of your god Rephan,
the idols you made to worship.
Therefore I will send you into exile' beyond Babylon.
Rephan is "a name for Chiun, the planet Saturn." Saturn, Baal, Molech, and Nimrod are identical in their myths and worship. Throughout the Old Testament, beginning during the conquering of Canaan in Numbers 25 and persisting through the exile to Babylon, the LORD God warned and scolded the people of Israel for their worship of the hosts of heaven.Saturn and Modern Israel
What of modern Israel? Is this nation still marked and represented by the planet Saturn?
On Saturn's northern pole, a storm is brewing. According to NASA.
One could make an argument that Israel is still marked by Saturn, and that Saturn may still represent an apostate Israel in the heavens.Maybe Saturn's star will be the mark and harbinger of Israel as long as she remains in her disbelief.harbinger: anything that foreshadows, heralds a future event; omen; sign.On Rosh Hashana 5771 (September 8, 2010),
The Star of Saturn enters its southern declination, meaning it is south of the celestial equator, an imaginary line going throughout the solar system from Earth's equator.
Interview with Phyllis Chesler: 'Israel Under Existential Siege'Israel is now surrounded by Hamas in Gaza, Iran’s Hizbullah in Lebanon, potentially the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and the various Islamist and jihadist groups on the West Bank.INN: What is your message for those who are indifferent to the growing scourge of Islamic propaganda and terrorism?
chesler: We, the world’s civilians, are now all Israelis. The same world which refused to stop the airplane hijackings and suicide killers which blew up countless Israeli civilians has now inherited this whirlwind. As they say: It may start with the Jews but it never ends there.
