The Narrow Gate Stars

.

.

.

.

The Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gate

.

.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

THE NARROW WAY: THE PILGRIM’S PATHWAY

.

That world-shaking allegory, Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, picked up the theme of the Narrow Gate. The hero of the story was Christian, a man who was warned to flee from the City of Destruction (the world), and to embark on a journey to the Heavenly City. And along the way, Christian encountered many adventures and dangers. This first of its kind allegorical book absolutely rocked the western world, and became perhaps the first million seller book (along with the Bible).

But God has also given this same Narrow Way parable in the night heavens! Incredible? Yes, incredible…and amazing too! And though these two stars can hardly be considered a constellation, but when sitting next to the two stars which comprise the Broad Gate, well, it makes a powerful statement, for the people of God. 

.

So please come along on this journey and find out just why this pathway graces the night heavens, and perhaps you might find yourself embarking on your own pilgrimage up that very same Narrow pathway.

THE NARROW WAY OR THE BROAD WAY

.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13, 14

.

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

Remember when Jesus urged us to enter into the Narrow Gate, in Matthew 7:13, 14? Well, this site reveals an incredible constellation group, which tells the Gospel Love Story. And just before this story ends its yearly cycle, it presents a climactic finale, in which the Revelation 12 Woman swerves toward the Narrow Gate Stars. And it will be revealed just what all this means to us, who are just now standing on the threshold of eternity.

ORION’S GATE (THE NARROW GATE)

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.

.

“Enter ye in at the strait (or ‘narrow’) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (narrow) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7:13, 14 

.

There is another, remarkable aspect to the Orion Phenomena, which has to do with Orion the Reaper. This is best seen when the winter Bible Constellations are in the west. if one stands, facing west, when Orion, the Dragon and the Glorious Horse are beginning to sink into the western horizon, that there are two bright stars in Orion’s sickle. And there are two bright stars in the Dragon’s wave of water coming out of his mouth. And the two bright stars in Orion’s sickle is about half the width apart as the two bright stars in the Dragon’s wave of water. What makes this so dramatic is that the Revelation 12 Woman looks as if she is veering towards Orion’s two bright stars.

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

And so, it now appears that this scenario is a picture of that well-known passage that Jesus spoke, concerning the Narrow Gate & the Wide Gate “Enter ye in at the strait (or  ‘narrow’) gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait (narrow) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”  Matthew 7:13, 14

.

Now when this constellation group is still in the east, it is not so evident that this Woman is heading for Orion’s sickle. But when they are in the west it now becomes very evident that she is veering toward the Narrow Gate. So this makes a wonderful finale to this Gospel Story written in the sky.

CASTOR & POLLUX

.

& THE MYSTERY SHIP OF THE BIBLE

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.

“And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.” Acts 28:11 

.

.

Now if this is not remarkable enough already, there is one more incredible phenomenon attached to this.Orion Logo Signs Of Heaven The two bright stars in Orion’s sickle happen to be Castor & Pollux of Gemini fame. Now what’s so remarkable about this you ask? Well, in order to understand this one needs only turn to the Book of Acts, Chapters 27, and 28. There it is told, the story of two ships. In Chapter 27, it speaks of the first ship that was supposed to take Paul to Rome to be tried before Caesar. In essence, this was Paul’s Judgment Day. But the ship didn’t make it to Rome. It became destroyed on an island http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpgand had to be abandoned. So everyone on the ship had to make it to shore. Then after three months, they all got on a ship from Alexandria, whose sign was Castor & Pollux. From there they were all delivered safely to Rome, where Paul was eventually tried and executed.

.

From all the Biblical language in this story, and because all the stories in Scripture are metaphorical in nature, we must conclude that this story is a prophecy concerning the Church. Matthew Henry, that most notable and highly popular  theologian likewise saw the first ship as representing the Church.

.

So the question is, if the first ship represented the Church, then just what did the second ship represent? Well isn’t it interesting that the second ship had the sign of Castor and Pollux? And isn’t it interesting that those two stars, Castor and Pollux, represent the Narrow Gate in Orion’s reaper’s sickle?

LOCATING THIS GROUP…

.

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. 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. 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”. )

.

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.
