How Do I See These Signs of Heaven? Part 2: “A Marked Trail”

To read Part 1, go here…JULY 31 (How Do I See These Signs of Heaven?)

.

.

.

.

.

Since the beginning of time on earth, a portion of mankind has sought out new and unexplored territories in which to live.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ORCapSteps.JPG

Perhaps because of the dangers from hostile enemies.

.

Or because of famine or pestilence.

.

Or merely from the desire to explore and discover new places.

.

Whatever the reason, humans have always blazed new trails.

MARKED TRAILS

.

Now, quite often, those trailblazers have left markings along the way, to guide others who were to follow.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Oregon_state_capitol_building_pioneer_on_top.jpg

.

Maybe they left cuttings in trees.

.

Or maybe they left various rock formations.

.

Many of them made crude maps of their journey.

.

But whatever the markings, these became a great assist for those who followed.

THE BIBLE A MAP

.

Now the Bible itself is a type of map.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

It shows us the way to Heaven.

.

Yes, in a very real sense, there is a pathway which God’s people must walk, that leads to the Celestial City of God.

“AN ENEMY HATH DONE THIS!”

Matthew 13:28

.

The great problem is, that the Enemy of Souls has obscured that well-marked pathway to Heaven, with many misleading signposts!

.

In other words, Satan has introduced many false doctrines which have greatly confused the true heavenward pathway!

.

And as a result, God’s people have left the true pathway, and have taken a wrong turn on a spurious pathway which the Bible calls, “The Broad Way that leads to destruction!”

“ABOMINATIONS & FILTHINESS OF HER FORNICATION”

Revelation 17:4

.

More and more, the Church has become filled with false doctrines and worldly pollutions.

.

Earthy and sensual music. (James 3:15)

.

“Foolish talk and jesting” and “mockery”. Ephesians 5:2 & Proverbs 14:9

.

Earthly prosperity and mammon-loving gospels. (1st Timothy 1:6)

.

Sensual dress and fashion. Fads and “hip” behavior. (1st Timothy 2:9 & Hebrews 13:8)

.

Clubs and organizations. (2nd Corinthians 6:14)

.

Television, games and entertainments. (1st Corinthians 15:33)

.

False doctrines, such as “Eternal Torment”, “Pre-Tribulation Rapture theory”, “Free-will Salvation”, “False hermeneutics which forbid spiritualizing Scripture”. (2nd Timothy 3:16, 17)

.

All these and a host of other unbiblical elements have been brought into Christianity in hopes of misleading and destroying God’s people from the true narrow pathway.

.

It is Satan’s design to keep God’s people from making their spiritual exodus out of this world!

.

And these aforementioned world-loving elements only keep God’s people prisoners in this lost world!

“AND THERE SHALL BE SIGNS”

Luke 21:25

.Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

But God is faithful, and has carefully placed some “trail markings” along the true pathway to the Celestial City!

.

Oh Yes, and God has foretold of these signs…“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;” Luke 21:25

.

“THE STARS IN THEIR COURSES FOUGHT…”

Judges 5:20

.

These great signs are not merely a bunch of obscure stars!

.

No, these are made of the greatest constellations: Orion, Ursa Major, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Corona Borealis, The Big Dipper, The Pleiades, are among the chief constellations on this website.

.

But when looking at them correctly they appear vastly different than what the ancient cultures saw them as!

.

“LOOK UP & LIFT UP YOUR HEADS!”

Luke 21:28

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

And so, these signs in the heavens have been given by God to mark the heavenward trail for His faithful remnant people.

.

And accompanied by the explanations found on this website, God has once again made straight the narrow pathway which leads out of this world, and onward and upward into the very heavens!

.

And so, you the reader, are invited to come along on this heavenward sojourn.

LOCATING CASTOR AND POLLUX…

.

These two sketches below are the same picture, one with stars only, the other with embellishments. These stars appear more or less like this when they are in the western sky, just before they sink below the western horizon (please excuse the less-than 100% accurate sketch). At the top of the sketches in the center is the Big Dipper. But with other surrounding stars, the Big Dipper is known as Ursa Major or the Great Bear. But as this website points out, Ursa Major is actually the Revelation 12 Woman. (Ursa Major appears much larger in the sky than this sketch shows. But in order to fit her into this drawing, the artist had to depict her much smaller) 

.

IN THE WEST

.

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter, and even into June at the beginning of night. It is seen best when it is the western part of the sky. Orion, the Dragon, and the Glorious Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon. And at this point it is apparent that the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the Narrow Gate Stars as you can see just to the left of the mountain.

.

ABOVE CHART : Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major & Big Dipper) swerving toward Narrow Gate (Castor and Pollux from Gemini Constellation) – late winter – signsofheaven.org

.

A dark night is best for seeing this. It begins with the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation going towards these two doors. The doors are each composed of two bright stars.

.

The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle.

.

Revelation 12 Woman & The Two Gates

.

The two stars that comprise the Wide Gate Stars (to the right of the mountain) are the two brightest stars of the Wave of Water (AKA Auriga Constellation) that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the Narrow Gate are about one-third less the width of the Wide Gate. The two bright stars which symbolize the Wide Gate are Capella and Menkalinan. These are the brightest two stars of the Auriga Constellation. (For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here, “Orion The Reaper”. )

.

ABOVE PICTURE: Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major Constellation including the Big Dipper) swerving toward the NARROW GATE STARS (Castor & Pollux from Gemini Constellation) AND WIDE GATE STARS (the two brightest stars from Auriga Constellation): This is how these three constellations appear when just above the eastern horizon. The woman, however appears more in her upright “Fleeing” position than this sketch shows.  It is somewhat of an optical illusion because of the “canopy effect” of the night sky. So it is impossible to sketch this on a flat surface. Nevertheless, this sketch shows this woman appearing to be drawn toward these two warriors; the Reaper, of course is Orion  . The Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation is not a commonly recognized constellation. His mouth is made of The Hyades Cluster of Taurus, and the tip of his tail is The Pleiades Cluster. The two bright stars on Orion The Reaper’s sickle is the Narrow Gate. And the two bright stars of the Dragon’s wave of water is the Wide Gate. When in the eastern sky it is not so clear as to which Gate she will enter. Woman is commonly known as Ursa Major (or the Great Bear or The Big Dipper)

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. But they are close enough to find them in the night sky.
