“The heavens declare the glory of God;

and the firmament showeth his handiwork.”

Psalm 19:1

As the above verse says so well, all the heavens declare God’s glory.

.

And since this planet is a member of Heaven, God’s glory is declared in nature all around us!

.

Yes, all we need to do, is just look around, and it won’t be long until we see something that speaks of Heaven!

THE NUMBER “TEN”

.

For instance, just count your fingers or toes.

.

Most of us have ten fingershttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:F%C3%AAte_de_l%27Humanit%C3%A9_2012_-_009.jpg, and ten toes. So, just what do they remind you of, spiritually? What does the number “Ten” remind you of, in the Bible?

.

The Ten Commandments? Do your ten fingers and ten toes remind you of the Ten Commandments?

.

Well if you’re fortunate enough to have ten fingers, it reminds us that our hands should be doing things in harmony with the Ten Commandments.

.

And if you’re fortunate enough to have ten toes, it should remind you to always walk in a way that glorifies God’s Commandments.

NUMBER “7”: THE BASIC NUMBER IN MUSIC

.

For those who know about the laws of music, this principle can also be seen.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PianoKeyboard.svg

.

For instance, all harmonic music operates by law and order. And those laws are very biblical.

.

Take for instance, the major scale has 7 notes.

.

Of course, the number “7” is found all through the Bible.

.

It is perhaps the most important number in the Bible. (Count the 7 white notes on the keyboard picture. This particular section of a keyboard is a major scale in the key of “C”.)

.

.

THE TWO PRIMARY NOTES!

.

And one of the basic laws that music professors teach is that the “1st note” of those 7 notes is called the “dominant note” in the major scale, and is the most important note.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PianoKeyboard.svg

And the next most important note, is the “5th note”, which is called the “sub-dominant note”.

.

And so, these two notes, the 1st note (the dominant) and the 5th note (the sub-dominant) are the very foundation on which harmonic music is built.

.

If you look at this piano keyboard picture, you will notice that it is the section of the piano keyboard of the “C” scale.

.

There are 7 white keys, which are the 7 notes of the major scale in the key of C.

.

These white notes, from left to right are the “Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti” which we have heard so often.

.

THE TWO FUNDAMENTAL COMMANDMENTS!

.

Well, what biblical significance is there in all this complicated information?

.

You see, in the Ten Commandments, the 1st Ten Commandments National Museum of Scotland wikimedia share-alike licenseCommandment represents God: “Thou shall have no other gods before Me”.

.

And the 5th Commandment has to do with family: “Honor thy father and mother”.

.

Yes, the 5th Commandment is all about children honoring their parents.

.

And so, this 5th Commandment represents not only our earthly family, but also reminds us of the family of God: the Church! And this is what the Gospel of Jesus is all about! God and his family.

.

And the 1st Commandment is what the first four CommTen Commandments - National Museum of Scotland - Wikimedia commons - share-alike-licenseandments relate to: loving God.

.

And the 5th Commandment is what the other six commandments are based on: THE HUMAN FAMILY.

.

In other words, the first four commandments are about our relationship with God. 

.

And the next six commandments are based on our relationship with the human family.

.

.

.

.

.

GOD’S LAW FOUND IN LAWS OF MUSIC

.

And so, it just makes sense that the two most fundamental notes in a major scale are the 1st and the 5th notes.

.

Yes, the major scale in music also declares the glory of God. And, upon those two notes, all harmonic music is based!

.

And musical compositions, even the very elaborate http://sfrolov.livejournal.com/compositions are based on the 1st note, and secondly on the 5th note.

.

And the goal of a musical composition is to start with the 1st note, and then go on a musical journey, which eventually returns to its final resting place…back to the 1st note…God.

.

And so music, when rightly done, carries this message within its very core: God and His Church, which finally returns back home to Him.

.

Now there are many other biblical similarities found in the countless laws of music.

.

And those who wish, can explore many of the other biblical numbers associated with music.

ORION AND THE 7 STARS: CHRIST & HIS CHURCH

.

.Orion Logo Signs Of Heaven

Now this same principle can be seen up in the Heavens.

.

Yes, if you will look in the night heavens, you find the two most easily identifiable constellations: Orion and the 7 Stars (aka “The Big Dipper”).

.

And these are the two primary constellations and they likewise represent God and His people!

.

And also notice that Orion is made of seven primary stars.

.

But also notice that the 7 Stars Constellation (AKA, The Big Dipper) is likewise made of seven stars.

.

So, when you explore the many wonders of nature, you will no doubt also see these biblical numbers written in the various creations found in all of Nature.

.

And with such knowledge, you can joyfully declare with the Psalmist…

.

“The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handiwork!”

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caravaggio_-_Martirio_di_San_Pietro.jpg

Peter let down his Lord by denying him thrice. But God allowed this to happen, knowing that Peter would repent, later to become one of the zealous Followers of Jesus. Probably many Christians have let their Lord down in a big way in the past. And like Peter, they have repented, likewise to become even more ardent Followers of Jesus.

.

The Church, in these last days, has been flooded with every device that Satan could possibly conjure up, to cast across our pathway, and lead God’s sheep astray. And though the Church has been greatly hindered, God is about to purify His sin-laden people, who will finally lift up the Cross of Christ with such power and glory, as this world has never before seen.

.

And the Reader may just discover the way that he or she might also help lift that Cross up.

.

And God has inscribed in the heavens, a picture of how the Church lifts up the Cross, as they imitate their Lord. So please read this very important article. And though it may take 30 minutes or so, it will be well worth the read.

LOCATING THESE TWO CONSTELLATIONS

.

This begins in October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night.

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart.

This Wikipedia star-chart has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
