May God richly bless you all this day.
There are some VERY exciting promises of the Bible about what the Lord said He would reveal in these end times. Some of these are in the following verses:
”And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days, and years” (Gen 1:14).
In this verse, the Lord explicitly indicates stars and planets, galaxies and so forth will be used by Him as signs. Our job is to search for these signs in the heavens and understand how they apply to His plans for us today. Much has been written about these things in blogs and books, and papers. Application is the key now, as the end of the age is upon us.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased” (Dan 12:4)
Here, the Lord tells us that He will reveal many secrets of the end times at the time of the end. This is called “progressive revelation” and is in full bloom now. In turn, we need to expect to know more of this knowledge, and this is exactly what is going on right now.
“Remember therefore how thou has received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come upon thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” (/Rev 3:3).
Here the Lord indicates that, if we don’t watch, we won’t know when He will come for us. Conversely, this must mean that if we DO watch, we WILL know when He will come for us. So, watch we must and watch we do. The great Apostle Paul said in I Thessalonians 5:4 that we are not children of the darkness, that day should overtake us as a thief. We are children of light, therefore we can and should know when Jesus is coming.

Back on Rosh Hashana, last year, that is September 29/30, 2011, which was nine month ago, a constellation formed into a specific mode. That constellation is called Virgo. It was seen to be a fulfillment of the picture given in Revelation chapter 12. By way of review about this, the scripture says:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars”. (Rev 12:1).
This formation occurred exactly on Rosh Hashana, Sepetember 29/30, 2011. The constellation had the moon at the feet while the sun shone, and comet Elenin had broken apart giving the 12 stars at her head. “And she, being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered” (Rev 12:2). Found in the womb of Virgo was the planet Venus (the Jesus star).
“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”. (Rev 12:3). There was also in the womb with Venus, Saturn, the dragon star and both occupied the womb together.
“And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them down 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”. (Rev 12:4) About the time of Hanukkah, Christmas time 2011, Venus had exited the womb of Virgo. Saturn was still there and no one knew for sure when it would exit. In the scripture, the dragon was to devour the child as soon as it was born. Folks, the woman was Israel, the child was Jesus Christ, and the dragon was Satan. The third of the stars was the heavenly host of angels that followed Satan in his rebellion against God Almighty.
What followed next is right now in progress!!
“And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days”. (Rev 5,6). Petra is the most likely place of the woman’s protective sojourn for three and one half years, which is the exact time of the great tribulation period.
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him”. (Rev 12:7 – 9). This is the war that precedes the rapture of the Church, evidently, and which causes the Devil and his crowd to come down to the people of earth in person, and also which introduces the time period known as the GREAT TRIBULATION. It lasts 1,260 days.
It is noteworthy that there has been nine months since the constellation formed up. Saturn has exited the womb and is now engaged in war in heaven. I believe that he is at this moment fighting a 21 days engagement (found before in Daniel 10 when he fought against the release of the Jews from Babylonian captivity), only this time he will be expelled from heaven above. This is done so that we may go to heaven and be there without his presence. But woe, woe, woe to the earth for he has come down having great wrath, for he knows that his time is short.
It is not likely that you can miss the message of Virgo. However, let me briefly recap what is above just in case:
Virgo formed up nine months ago. She fulfilled the picture of Revelation chapter 12. Two heavenly bodies were found in her womb. Venus (Jesus star) and Saturn (the dragon’s star). Venus was “born” (which represented Jesus virgin birth, and He was whisked away to the throne of God. His mother nation, Israel, fled into the wilderness to escape the dragon. The dragon (Saturn) was born about nine months later and sought to eat the man child, Jesus, but He was with the Father in heaven, so the dragon could not. He declared war in heaven, but was cast out. Being extremely angry, he turned his attention to Israel, the descendants of the woman and sought to destroy them after he was cast down to earth. But, God prepared a safe haven for the Israelites where He protects them for 1,260 days during the Great Tribulation period. She gets to her protective place on wings of eagles, which are probably modern aircraft.
Immediately after the war in heaven, a “beast” rises out of the people on earth who proclaims himself to be God (Rev 13:1). He is called the antichrist. But, before that, the true Church, the people of God will be taken from earth to heaven in an event called the rapture, wherein the dead in Christ rise and the living go up to meet the Lord in the air.
Now, listen closely. A time line has been established scripturally that requires the beginning of the great tribulation, the final 1,260 days to begin June 26, 2012. So, working within that time frame, this is the situation as it appears today and may answer questions that may now be asked, such as “are there hints in scripture as to how long it will take for Satan to be cast out? Are there hints as to when Satan will be coming down to earth? And do we pass him on the way up? Let’s explore:
1. The transit of Venus began at 3 minutes after midnight Jerusalem standard time. In other words, it began just after midnight. This perfect timing points to the symbolism of our constellation sign in the heavens, given above about the casting out of Satan. It may be noteworthy that the transit to 6.66 hours to make it journey across the face of the sun. This may an indicator of the start of the final war in heaven.
2. Just 21 days later is June 25/26, the beginning of the great tribulation. No better way to begin this time period could be imagined than to have Satan cast to the earth, along with his unholy angels. From the transit in #1 to June 25/26 is an inclusive count of 21 days.
3. This strongly suggests that the final war in heaven is in its last 21 days. It also strongly suggests that we may be taken out any day now, but probably on the last of the 21 days, just as the Jews were delivered from Babylonian captivity on the last of the 21 days back then. This seems to say that we will be going up, as Satan is coming down. And just as Daniel was greatly beloved, so are we, the Church of Jesus Christ greatly beloved.
4. Brother Ron Reese and many others as well, including myself have spoken of sudden destruction as simultaneous to our rapture event. I think the most probable scenario is earthquakes of 9 or 10 on the Richter, followed by massive tsunamis that will decimate the nations and cause worldwide panic and chaos. Out of that will come a forced new world order, complete with computer numbering in order to buy or sell. It will also trigger wars by nations hungry to gobble up other weaker ones. In other words, all hell is about to break loose on our planet. The sudden destruction/rapture fits perfectly here. Both destruction from God and destruction from man are in view.
5. The time line means that the first day of the Kingdom Age will begin with the coronation of King Jesus, which may last 7 days or so. It is interesting to note that Hanukkah 2015 begins on December 8 and runs 7 days through December 14. This is the probable time of the Coronation of King Jesus. Anyway, the very last day of the horrible great tribulation period will be December 7, 2015. This is absolutely verified scripturally by overlaying the days of Noah, that is 120 years of 360 days per year, which totals to 43,200 days on the time clock of God Almighty, tiny Israel. From the first vestige of return to Palestine by the Jews on August 29, 1897 which was the first day of the first Zionist Congress under their hero leader Theodor Herzl, until the end of the tetrads of eclipses so aptly presented by Bro. Mark Biltz some time ago, is 43,125 days. But, Daniel 12 demands the addition of 75 more days to the end time period bringing the total to exactly 43,200 days, an exact overlay on the days God gave Noah until SUDDEN DESTRUCTION/DELIVERANCE back then. Thus today, June 25/26 should be SUDDEN DESTRUCTION/RAPTURE for us now. The picture is perfect and it is entirely Bible based.
6. Being precisely exact, could the timing of the start of the transit of Venus be hinting for us to watch 3 minutes after midnight Jerusalem standard time 21 days later on June 25/26? If so, this translates to 6:03 p. m Eastern Daylight time on Monday evening, June 25, 2012.
7. Interestingly, this day, Monday/Tuesday is the traditional Jewish day when the bridegroom calls for his bride in what is known as the bridal call. The third day, Tuesday/Wednesday is the only day of the week popular for weddings because it is declared “good” twice, in Gen 1:10 and 12.
Oh, dear readers: If you are not ready, please take the time and effort to get that way. If you accept this message, then buy up the remaining days as they are truly evil times. Do what you can, but most importantly, prepare yourselves to meet Jesus Christ our soon coming King. Repent of all known sin. I know this is addressed to the choir so to speak, but it never hurts to be repetitive when it comes to being right with God.
Blessings on you and yours. All Glory to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
