”And there appeared a Great Wonder in heaven; a Woman clothed with the Sun, & the Moon under her feet, & upon her Head a Crown of 12 stars: 2she being with Child cried, travailing in birth, & pained to be delivered. 3there appeared another Wonder in heaven; & behold a Great Red Dragon, having 7 Heads & 10 horns, & seven crowns upon his heads. 4 Its tail swept .33 of the stars out of the sky & flung them to the Earth. The Dragon stood in front of the Woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her Child the moment He was born. 5 She gave birth to a Son, a Male Child, who “will rule all the Nations with an iron scepter.” And her Child was snatched (Raptured) up to God & to His Throne. 6 The Woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.” -Revelations 12:1-6
Is the ‘Red Dragon’ anomaly appearing now in the Constellation Virgo currently the fulfillment of Revelation 12? Could this ‘sign’ signal the impending Rapture of the Church because of its match to the Revelation 12 symbolism? Venus is set to cross over/out of the ‘womb’ of Virgo on OCT 4, 2011 in direct line to the Dragon Face anomaly. Will Elenin, whatever it is have a significant role to play in the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy this coming Jewish Fall Feast of Rosh HaShana? The purpose of this study/chart is to consider this possible scenario given the prophetic patterns of the imagery throughout past fulfillments & the possible pending one during Rosh HaShana 2011. It will be taken from a Christian Biblical point of view. For Illustration Purposes Only. No Predictions are made.
POINT 1: The Revelation 12 imagery is prophetic with multiple layers of meaning related to prior, present & future fulfillments of Biblical Prophecy. Several notable interpretations will be highlighted below to show its level of depth in meaning: 1) The Past in Christ Jesus, 2) Present with the Church, 3) the Future with Israel & 4) the astronomical fulfillment in the Constellation Virgo for this time period during Rosh HaShana 2011. In each case or scenario, regardless of the interpretation, the ultimate stage is a “Rapture” -a snatching away & up!
POINT 2: Cosmologically, the Sun travels the Ecliptic & every September, it traverses through the Constellation Virgo. The Moon also travels close by. Around every Rosh HaShanah we have a close configuration of the Revelation 12 imagery. A more precise one will occur on Rosh HaShana -Sep 17, 2015. What is significantly & eerily different in 2011 is that you have a blocked-out section in Virgo that seemingly configures to appear like a face of a ‘Red Dragon.’ The screenshot is taken from GoogleSky along with the blocked-out patch which can only be seen in ‘infrared’ mode; looks like a ‘Red Dragon’ face to me! A more in-dept search on NASA’s SkyView telescope will tell what is actually there.
POINT3 : IF the ‘Red Dragon’ face anomaly is the ’Sign’-as presented in Revelation 12, that has appeared at this period in time - & you happen to have multiple elements & variables all coming together at the same time: a close approximation of the symbolism, Sun/Moon, Planets in Virgo, a New Moon & an Elenin Alignment -on the eve of the Jewish Fall Feast of Rosh HaShana Sep 2011 -then it presupposes that an imminent Rapture IS also to follow! Elenin, what ever it is, will be leaving Virgo on the 30th headed to Leo. If the Rapture happens during this 27-30 window, it could lead into the possible ‘deception’ / Lie that many ascribe Elenin as some sort of vehicle that removed Christians off the earth.
- The Elenin Alignment of Sept 27 is uniquely or coincidently marked by 1) a New Moon, 2) on the Jewish New Year’s Eve, 3) with Planetary Alignment of Earth-Moon-Sun-Mercury-Uranus!
- The area of where you have the possible “Red Dragon” face imagery is blocked out on GoogleSky; viewable alternately through NASA’s SkyView virtual telescope online.
- The blocked-out Red Dragon ‘Face’ image can only be picked up with the Infrared mode on GoogleSky, thus the actual color of the anomaly is ‘Red’ in the light spectrum.
- The coordinates for the other anomaly, possibly Nibiru (Planet X) in Leo is not viewable in detail with NASA’s SkyView website -as its search function & database is disabled.
- NASA’s JPL Small-Body Database for the trajectory of Elenin has changed several times since Sept 2, 2011 so the actual coordinates are approximations & subject to further change.
- Elenin seemingly mirrors the Jewish Fall Feast with primarily the Alignment on the eve of Rosh HaShana -going into the Heart of Leo on Yom Kippur Oct 8, 2011.
