Dragons and dragon-slayers and damsels in distress: these are the things that storybooks are made of!

.

And down through the centuries, there have been no shortage of such intriguing tales.

.

And quite often, those storybooks ended with the words… “And they lived happily ever after”

THE VERY FIRST DRAGON-SLAYER STORY

.

Signs Of Heaven website reveals God’s own version of this same theme.

.

Only difference is, God wrote this dragon-slayer story in the heavens, in the day when He created the heavens and the Earth, as is written… “although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” Hebrews 4:3.

.

And He wrote it long before Mankind had even been created, and He certainly wrote it long before Mankind had ever written such tales.

“And they lived happily ever after”

.

But unlike the make-believe children’s tales written by mortal men, this heavenly story is the only story ever told, which speaks the truth when it ends with… “And they lived happily ever after” (see Revelation 21:4).

.

Because, in reality, the words, “ever after” present a big, big problem. Because the fact is, every earthly story ultimately ends with the death of all its participants, both good and bad, alike.

.

But this heavenly story not only ends with “happily ever after”, but is a true story as well; and not just a fairy-tale.

P.S. And may your own personal story likewise end with… “And they lived happily ever after”, as you fully engage yourself in becoming a Follower & Disciple of Jesus today.

TODAY’S PRAYER:

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to walk that ever-ascending pathway to the gates of Heaven. Help me to study, meditate on thy Word, and pray without ceasing as I go about my day today. And finally O Lord, please, please help my own personal story to one day end with… “And they lived happily ever after.” Amen.”

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

REVELATION 12 DRAGON IS NOT DRACO!

.

First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco, AKA Ursa Minor).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DracoCC.jpg

.

This Revelation 12 Dragon from Signs Of Heaven, has not been previously recognized. But you will discover that it is a very intricate and complex constellation, once you are comfortable locating it.

THE DRAGON OF REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION. The star-charts below are from Wikipedia and are combined into one chart to show these three constellations, which the editor has sketched over with these three constellations, as they appear when in the west. Hopefully, this will be an assist in locating these constellations in the night-sky.

LOCATION…

.

star-charts winter constellations

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
