Discovering the Stars

He counts the number of the stars and
he calls all of them by names.

Psalm 147:4

Aramaic Bible in Plain English

We  finally had some clear skies this morning after days of rain and clouds. The view of the stars before daylight was incredible.  Such vibrant, amazing pulsating colors!  What beautiful, intriguing lights!! 

There are regular pulsating stars.  I saw my first one this summer...never noticed them before.  Yet, I am discovering so much - a vast classroom "chalkboard" is directly above our heads.  Just lift your eyes up to see and learn.  I have shared some of my findings on this "learning journey" at:

Apparently (as shown on Stellarium) we saw Sirius and the star above Orion in our morning SW sky appears to be Betelgeuse.  

There is so much to discover!  
I am in awe that our incredible God has created and set in motion the stars, moon and sun!   

Shown above is our morning sky in Oregon on November 27, 2016, according to Stellarium.  

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades,
and the chambers of the south.
Job 9:9

Each glowing ball of color is the star as captured in my videos! 

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades,

or loose the bands of Orion?
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season?
or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
Job 38:31-32

Orion, a sidereal of the constellation Taurus, it is said to be the most spectacular and wonderful sight in the night sky. Orion is pictured as a mighty hunter with a club in his right hand. In his left hand, he holds the skin of a lion that he has killed. Orion is mentioned twice in the book of Job and once in the prophecy of Amos. Orion means “coming forth as light.”

The brightest star in the constellation is Betelgeuse, meaning “the coming of the branch.” Another star in his foot is Rigel, meaning “the foot that crushes.” In the shoulder of the constellation is a star called Bellatrix, meaning “quickly coming.” In his leg is a star called Saiph meaning, “bruised.” Again, as in every other case, we are reminded of Christ crushing the head of the seed of the serpent. Orion is obviously a picture of Christ coming in power and great glory.

It is absolutely amazing watching the stars change color! 

Canis Major

Like the other major constellations there are three sidereal sidepieces, which help to tell the story of Gemini. The first is Canis Major. It is depicted as a large dog and should be considered along with the second sidereal sidepiece, Canis Minor — a small dog. Over the centuries, these two constellations lost their original significance. The Greeks supposed them to be the hunting dogs of Orion when, in fact, the names of the stars in Canis Major and Canis Minor reveal that they were not originally dogs at all, but pictures of the Prince of Peace and Redeemer of the world.

The most significant star Canis Major is Sirius — the brightest star in the entire heavens. Sirius is the most glorious star in the sky, meaning “the Prince.” It is the root word from which we derive the title, “Sir.”

The star images you see are taken from this video.

Here is a nice high-quality video I found:
Betelgeuse, Rigel, Pulsating Variable Stars (24-11-2016) Telescope

In addition to the sights this morning, Monday evening, November 21, just after sunset my husband saw Venus in the same location where Sirius appeared this morningIt's amazing how the sky changes while we sleep...the constellations are moving westward overnight.

"The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament sheweth his handy work.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
night unto night sheweth knowledge.

Psalm 19:1-3

Note:  Mazzaroth (constellation) or Biblical astronomy studies the creation that God made and set in order. It is not astrology which the bible admonishes us not to follow.

God of Wonders By Third Day with lyrics

Shiloh II Booklet (PDF - download and print, 51 pages) – THE SIGNS OF THE KING’S COMING
The story told in God's word and the sky from Genesis to Revelation
- the story of Shiloh-Messiah-Christ-Redeemer-King! 

Judah's Story – Signs in the heavens

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Colossians 1:16-17

Hang on to hope

Hang on to hope despite the circumstances. 

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

I am grateful for God’s encouragement and this glorious rainbow we witnessed in our neighborhood last week. This sign was a sweet surprise reminder of God’s faithfulness and sovereignty. 

My video of our rainbow sighting ;-)

My husband captured this image from our roof!

These earthly rainbows give a vision…a mere glimpse of the heavenly rainbow we’ll see at God’s throne!

And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone:
and there was a rainbow round about the throne,
 in sight like unto an emerald.

Revelation 4:3

Until then, our lives will have joys and bumps along the way.  An eternal hope remains even as we are reminded of blessings and hardship in 
Job 1:21…

And he said:

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

The song “It is Well with My Soul” and the story behind it carry a timeless message of hope as well.

The Apostle Paul experienced many tribulations in his life, yet held on to the hope and encouraged fellow Christ followers to trust in their Savior.

Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren,
my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.

Philippians 4:4

From Genesis to Revelation the glorious everlasting hope has been proclaimed!

“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen,
 look up and lift up your heads, 
because your redemption draws near.”

Luke 21:25-28

The nearly full November moon this autumn. 

Keep an eternal focus – not on what is temporary 
– fix your eye on the big picture!
There is much happening behind the scenes.  As Shakespeare said, 
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players…”  
Pay attention to world events, but don’t be distracted by puppet shows or deceived by false promises of peace.  Praise God!  True hope is on the horizon!

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world.
If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight,
so that I should not be delivered to the Jews;
but now My kingdom is not from here.”

John 18:36

 Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.

Daniel 12:3

May the Lord’s peace and hope always be with you! 
Awaiting the release in this year of Jubilee 5777.

More Revelation

 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

Great overview/reminder of all we've been studying!  We appreciate the new timeline that shows the various stages of events - the Harpazo of the ready church body and Christ's later return and gathering of Israel. (The September 2017 sign mid-tribulation.)
