    Has anyone looked into the celestial sign and the amazing specifics of the Virgo constellation sign that will occur on September 23 of this year?

    1. The moon will be directly under the feet of Virgo
    2. The Sun will be shining over the shoulder clothing Virgo in the sunlight
    3. There will be twelve stars above her head
    4. Jupiter the King planet will spend precisely 274 days in her womb section when 280 days is the average for a baby in the womb of a mother.
    5. This complete scenario cannot be found in 7000 years past nor 1000 years into the future.

    No, I have not embraced it as the beginning point of the 1260 days in Revelation 12. However, what are your thoughts about it? Has anyone done any serious research into it?

    First that I have read of it. Interesting thought, but I am skeptical.

    Complete misunderstanding of Rev, 12:2 and a pile of astrological mumbo-jumbo.
    All together now!

    'When the moon is in the seventh house,
    And Jupiter elides with Mars;
    Then peace will guide the planet,
    And love will steer the stars.'

    :rolleyes:

    Good skepticism is healthy but I think this guy overdoes it. For example, his first problem is really no problem as there is a birthing process going on in the sky. Jupiter spends exactly 274 days in the womb of virgo from September 20 2016 until September 9, 2017. 280 days is the average for child birth, so there is the symbolism of a birth of a child. Jupiter is recognized by the Jews as the "king" planet and symbol of the Messiah.

    Second, the event anticipates modern technology as the sun clothing Virgo happens in the day time and apart from modern technology it could never be detected.

    Third, This would be a sign to modern day Israel that their Messiah has already been born into the world and received up into heaven and is coming again. The only possible Messiah that can fit that description is Jesus of Nazereth.

    Fourth, "bernices hair" is more fictional than actual. I have used stellar programs to see this phenomena and it does not show up.

    He may have a point about the position of the sun. The sun just above and behind her shoulder clothes her in its sunlight but the sun is not positioned in her body as in 3 A.D.

    However, there are other things to consider. Israel became a nation in 1947-48 which was an achievement no other displaced nation has attained after being displaced for more than 1000 years. Jesus said that "this generation" (the generation living at the time of these things) would see all these things come to pass. David gives the length of a generation as 70 years and 80 if blessed.

    1947 to 2017 is precisely 70 years. This is a blessed generation and so add another ten years 2017-2027 is the time left for all these things to begin.

    The Tetrads of blood moons did not indicate anything would happen at their occurrence, as the Bible says the moon shall turn into blood "BEFORE" the day of the Lord. It did not say it would be the sign to introduce the day of the Lord.

    I am still very skeptical of this theory, I assume a wait and see position.
