He (Christ) replied, "I saw satan fall like lightning from Heaven. -Luke 10:18
‘Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and YOU that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he hath but a short time left.’ -Revelation 12:12
In making the Solar & Lunar Eclipse chart for 2012, there are 2 Solar Eclipses that are not listed on NASA’s website where I get the information off of. I am not sure if this is an oversight or just not accurate. I was made aware of this omission because several star-tracking software programs like Starry Night & Stellarium do confirm that 2 Partial Solar Eclipses are to occur on Dec 24, 2011 & on Dec 12, 2012.
The purpose of this chart is to ascertain the coming Solar & Lunar Eclipses for 2012. A timeline will be used to plot the Eclipses, Solar & Lunar ones. The Eclipses will be diagramed against the corresponding constellations they will occur in. A day-count will be given to measure the time between key dates for 2012. There are many anticipated speculations as to what will occur during 2012; many are from esoteric, political, spiritual & prophetic points of view. Regardless, the significance of Dec 21, 2012 in particular is subject to on-going dispute & interpretation. Nonetheless I like to correlate several theories, in general as to what the Solar & Lunar Eclipses & their dates could possibly allude to. For illustration purposes only. No predictions are made.
1.Earthly conflict mirrors the Heavenly Conflict.
The coming Solar & Lunar Eclipses of 2012 specifically could be the backdrop for a ‘stage’ of sorts that is being set up on Earth. It could be a possible correlation to an immanent conflict to soon occur. This conflict may have not only an Earthly manifestation but a corresponding Heavenly one as well. The 2 may not be mutually exclusive in the coming year or years ahead. At any given moment, there are over 100 armed movements around the world. What is peculiar is that Israel’s period of major Earthly warfare have mirrored celestial occurrences in the past, such as with the Tetrads & Blood Moons on Feast Days. Thus the probability of future Earthy-to-Celestial corresponding warfare could also be based on these Solar & Lunar Eclipses. One fact is sure, satanic influences on human endeavors specifically related to both spiritual & physical warfare of God’s people, as with Israel are well documented in the Bible. As Israel is now surrounded by hostile Muslim nations bent on its destruction, we are headed to an inevitable major military confrontation. The Bible does give us a glimpse of what has happened in light of the Heavenly Rebellion of lucifer & his fallen angels as it has related to Israel; there is on-going Celestial War happening. There is a war out there in the Heavens that is about to spill over into our human time & space. Israel & ‘Earthly’ Jerusalem will be the eye of the storm. Could the Eclipses of 2012 signal a spiritual confrontational counterpart functioning as time-markers? We don’t see in whole but in part, yet what we can ascertain is enough to paint a picture of what is & will transpire in the near future regarding this conflict.
We do know that satan does influence Earthly military endeavors of people & nations. You have King David numbering his men due to satan’s prompting. You have an angel quarreling with lucifer over Moses’ bones etc. You have Elisha & the Angelic Army surrounding the city. In 2 Kings 6:8-23, Sennacherib’s army is decimated by the Angels. Joshua encounters a powerful military Angel Commander as an Angelic army is marching, parallels to Joshua’s/Hebrews as they travel to the Promised Land. Then you have the 4 Angels at the Euphrates making way for the Asian 2 million-man army that will descend on Israel at a specific future time. It is very interesting that as with Daniel, during Israel’s 70-Year captivity in Babylon-Medo-Persia, the Prince of Persia is alive & well in these Last Days. It appears that the struggle/conflict is once again upon Israel with this Prince of Persia (Principalities & Powers) –being against God’s Earthly People as it was in the past. With the speculation of immanent war in the Middle East & an Israeli strike on a Nuclear Iran or vice-versa, it appears that the prophecies of the Bible are lining up. Could these Eclipses be the sounding of the alarm? Interestingly, not only is Israel under pressure to act militarily to stop Iran from going nuclear but so are 90% of all the Sunni Muslims & especially Saudi Arabia. SA is currently being encircled by Muslim fundamentalism from Egypt, Libya, Yemen, & Iran. These are Shi’ite followers & hard-liners sympathetic to Tehran. So too are they sensing & being threatened by this radical Islamic version of Islam. This interpretation ascribes to the prophecy that the final 12th Imam is soon to appear on the scene. So too with Maitreya, Kukulkan…etc. When? In 2012.
2.The Rapture of the Saints appears to take place before satan is cast down to Earth.
When will this possible immanent Earth-to-Heaven conflict occur? There are many insightful postulations. Will it be at the beginning of the Tribulation or at the point of the indwelling of the Anti-Christ-possibly at the mid-point? Could these coming Solar & Lunar Eclipses be a clue or signpost of when it could possibly start? What is interesting is that Revelation 12:12 might give us a clue. I would put forth that the “YOU” from Revelation 12:12 could possible allude to the Raptured Saints already in Glory when this could happen on Earth. This could have taken place at the point when either lucifer is cast down or just beforehand. It states that those that are in heaven are rejoicing that Satan has been cast out but the inhibiter’s of the earth must now face his wrath. This could be when lucifer is given complete power for 42 months. Rev 13:5 tells us: “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue[c] for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.” I believe that the LORD has to cleanse Heaven of lucifer’s defilement & rid of satan himself for His Bride to have room & abide in. There can be no room for both. Judicially, satan does have rights & access to the LORD’s Court Room now but at the point of satan’s ejection, there will be a conflict that relishes him down to the Earth. This is were the Rapture would possibly take place then after lucifer’s ejection but before he is then cast down to Earth. At that point in time, lucifer can never have access again to God’s Court Room to be the accuser of the Brethren anymore. At this point in time, satan is literally restricted to be only on earth but for a short time. He will be reaping havoc because he knows that his time is short. Satan’s target is the human race in general but he will do everything he can to fight against the LORD –that means going after the Remnants of Israel & Believers after the Rapture. This will be his last attempt to do a re-take of Nimrod to gather the Nations against His Annointed.
>From Ezekiel 28:15 & Isaiah 14:12-17 we don’t know when this angelic conflict happened, possibly before time somewhere in the Council’s of God. Genesis 1:2 does hint though of this conflict/battle’s effect on the Creation & Earth. The wording in Hebrew of tohu wa bohu which is also used in Jeremiah 4:23 does describe the results -as if from a battle. We do know the reason behind the Rebellion of lucifer from Isaiah 9. Lucifer was created ‘perfect’ but not infallible. He too like Adam, was in a perfect sinless environment, yet he willfully chose to sin due to Pride. Ironically, the 5 “I Wills” in Isaiah 14:12-17 where Satan asserts his will thus culminate in the 5 levels of his decent. His judgment started the downward descent of the ‘Celestial Snake. With these Eclipses, we could be seeing the stage for the next scheduled one before lucifer is imprisoned & then cast into the Lake of Fire. He has gone from the position of Anointed Cherub that Covered the Throne of God to the Judicial Courts of Heaven (with 3rd Heaven), then to the Heavenlies (2nd Heaven Space/Air), then to the Earth. At which point –possibly is when the indwelling of the Anti-Christ takes place. This ’man’, whomever he will be will be killed. Most likely he will be assassinated. There will be a death & mimicked resurrection of this ‘man’. Could the Solar and/or Lunar Eclipses mark these turning points? Regardless, lucifer is in a downward spiral descent; then after the Great Tribulation, down to the Pit (for a 1000 years); then ultimately down to the Lake of Fire thereafter.
3. What is so special about 2012?
The appearance of the Sun rising into the Center region of our Galaxy on Dec 21, 2012 is not a particularly unique event. The phenomena can be observed every Winter Solstice. The only interesting aspect of this 2012 year is that the sun will appear to enter the Dark Rift. It is considered to have reached a sort of “Re-birth” position. The universe is vast, with suns, planets, nebulas, galaxies all moving about. Eclipses happen frequently. True. So what is the big deal? Realize that the constellation’s imagery can only be seen from Earth vantage point. The LORD instructed us to heed them as ‘signs’. So, these Eclipses at certain years & dates are extremely significant. The Eclipses are then definitely ‘sing-posts.’
The constellations then do tell us a story as many studies attest. Having Solar and/or Lunar Eclipses on certain times within the constellation just emphases the spiritual meaning behind their connotation. They are like a picture taken of an event that requires attention & discernment. They are a highlight that is meant for us to take notice of. From the research of E.W. Bullinger, The Witness of the Stars, we can ascertain some spiritual meaning of what the Eclipses can possibly seem to be punctuating for us to consider. The Eclipse of Nov 25, 2011 happens in Scorpio. Scorpio is the arch-enemy. The Eclipse emphasize that the Enemy has been judged & thus has received the mortal wound by the Hero Sagittarius, (Antares is red). Venus, depicting a “Women” is with the Hero as Mercury is the Messenger delivers this omen.
The next Eclipse happens in Sagittarius on Dec 24, 2011. He is the Hero with a dual nature, the God-Man that has obtained the Crown (Corona Australis). Mercury delivers this message. The Eclipse of May 201, 2010 is in Taurus. Here we have a very interesting configuration. You have the King Planet Jupiter accompanied by a Messenger, Mercury on the scene with Venus at the heal of the Shepherd Auriga that is pierced by the Bull. As if saying it was for the “Woman” that he was wounded and the Eclipse is in direct conjunction beneath the Pleiades; the 7 Virgins. Is this the picture that the King along with His Messenger is coming for His “Woman” & Maidens? We’ll see. Next, the Eclipse of Nov 13, 2012 emphasizes that the Enemy, Scorpio is Judged, completely by Libra thus you have a total Solar Eclipse. Lastly, the Dec 12, 2012 Eclipse is unique in that almost all the Planets witness this event it seems. They are gathered to see that Ophiuchus, the Man that is in constant struggle with the Serpent is trying to usurp the Crown (Corona Borealis). Like Auriga, Scorpio has stung the Man at his heal in this consmic struggle. This is precisely where the Eclipse happens as if to punctuate that possibly the Serpent will be cast down but once on Earth, he will start his accent to power…perhaps the 42 months the Scriptures speak about?
The Science of 2012
The year 2012 will have 3 major Solar Eclipses, one on May 20, one in November 13 & one on December 13. The May 20 one is exactly 60 days from the Spring Equinox & is tied to the mystery of the Pleiades with the Mayan Calendar & eschatology. It is well documented that the Constellations are considered to be the ‘silent witness’ of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; the storyline of the Redeemer. (See Mazzorath). The place where & when the Eclipses take place then is very significant. Now as to the meaning & significance? Many have studied these topics & have ascribed such phenomena some valid assumptions. Blood Moons are evil for Israel, Solar Eclipses are evil for the Nations, Comets are omens of doom, etc.
Dec 21, 2012 will witness several conjunctions. You will have the Winter Solstice, our Sun entering the center region of the Galactic Equator & nearly all the planets will be in near conjunction. Could 2012 possibly be a prelude to the preparations of the eventual apparition of lucifer on Earth? Will 2012 be the year where the Anti-Christ is identified & put in position of power due to economic, political & religious vacuums due to the coming strife & turmoil in the world presently? Where & who will he be or from what nation he will come out of is subject to debate. One fact is for sure, it will happen & it will be a short-lived. It has already been decreed…he will be ‘given 42 months’ of total power on Earth.
Aside from the hype of all the esoteric significance due in part by the Mayan/Aztec numerology & prophecies, 2012 will have some unique heavenly attributes that we should be taking note of. It is not rock science nor astrology. Foremost, will be the infamous December 21, 2012. It will happen to fall on the Winter Solstice. Looking at our Galaxy directly forward, you can imagine a line as a dissecting the Galactic equator. Our Earth then moves up and down this line in a sign-wave motion as we revolve around our Sun. The Sun & our Solar System is edging ever so close through the Galaxy. It will enter this ‘Dark Rift’ at exactly 11:11 am GMT on Dec 21, 2012. This is when the Sun will appear to enter into or near the part of sky referred to as the ‘Galactic Centre’ or the nuclear bulge or our Milky Way Galaxy. It is believed that is the location of the super-massive black hole that rotates at the center of the Galaxy. This is where many speculate that a pole shift might happen that could possibly cause massive tsunamis, earthquakes, & disasters etc. Due in part from myths & legends, every time the Earth has come to this point, a ‘transition’ or cataclysmic change has been known to have occurred. We shall see.
- There are 4 Solar Eclipses starting from Nov 25 till Dec 21, 2012. The Dec 24, 2011 & the Dec 12, 2011 are not documented on NASA’s website.
- There are exactly 178 days from the Nov 25, 2011 Partial Eclipse to the Nov 13, 2012 Partial Solar Eclipse. 29 days are between the Nov to Dec Eclipses.
- The Annular Eclipse of May 20, 2012 is exactly 60 days after the Spring Equinox. It will be in conjunction to the Pleiades –related to Mayan eschatology.
- The Lunar Eclipses are 14 & 15 days apart from the corresponding Solar Eclipses, given the noted dates.
- From the Dec 10, 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse to the June 4, 2012 Partial Lunar Eclipse is also exactly 178 Days apart, as it is also to the one on Nov 28, 2012.
