That heraldry appears to present a celestial sign that is perhaps identified with the official return of the ET god Apollo or Amaru. Before I explore that, I'd like to offer a brief on the dynamic involved with celestial symbols and the coming false messiah.
I've been schooled about the celestial signs of my Lord Y'shua's birth, baptism and return, recording much of what I've learned and declaring it plainly on The Open Scroll. What has been presented there is a foundation for understanding the significance of what appears on the Papal Coat of Arms. When the apostle Paul quoted Psalm 19:4 in Romans 10:18, he revealed by revelation his understanding of the vital role played by the celestial lights. This messaging system is functioning now as then, according to what was declared in Genesis 1, where we are informed that these are signs to mark seasons, appointed times. The history of the ages is pre-written, if you will, in the heavens. The sky is an open witness, whose testimony was known by the patriarchs and, although presumed lost by some, is known now to the full extent of what serves the sovereign Lord's purposes, who has ably preserved and restored this precious testimony as appropriate.
What is declared in the first chapter of John has profound implications, an esoteric expression of truth about my Lord that is easily noted as being rooted in the account of Creation.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. ~ John 1:1-8
This Word has a counterpart, and that “man sent from God, whose name was John,” who “came as a witness to testify about the Light,” has a counterpart - in a Pope. (See Baptism - The Prophecy for more insight)
The celestial lights are themselves symbols, as ordained by their Creator, and the matter of representing these symbols (2nd commandment) was strictly forbidden for our protection. Those who rebel and exploit this idolatrous mechanism do so according to knowledge of the secrets of heaven, those taught by fallen angels, with whom some commune.
1) And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of making them; bracelets, and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes, and of beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious stones, and all kinds of coloured dyes. And the world was changed. 2) And there was great impiety, and much fornication, and they went astray, and all their ways became corrupt. 3) Amezarak taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, Armaros the release of spells, and Baraqiel astrologers, and Kokabiel portents, and Tamiel taught astrology, and Asradel taught the path of the Moon. 4) And at the destruction of men they cried out; and their voices reached Heaven. ~ Enoch 8
6) See then what Azazel has done; how he has taught all iniquity on the earth and revealed the eternal secrets that are made in Heaven. 7) And Semyaza has made known spells, he to whom you gave authority to rule over those who are with him. 8) And they went into the daughters of men together, lay with those women, became unclean, and revealed to them these sins. 9) And the women bore giants, and thereby the whole Earth has been filled with blood and iniquity. ~ Enoch 9:6-9
Not only was iniquity taught, but the eternal secrets made in Heaven were revealed. “And the world was changed.” While the reproductive activity described by Enoch is a vital subject today, let's not neglect what else characterized the days of Noah in our assessment of this present season as we anticipate the soon coming of the Son of Man. The Watcher who had been given “authority to rule over those who are with him” made known spells to man. We can and should infer from the context that these spells pertained to the exercise of authority over angelic authorities. When I addressed the Papal keys in this series and related them to the keys of Solomon, it is this binding and loosing in the exercise of commanding the principalities and powers of the heavens that is in view. We are informed in 1 Corinthians 15, in the book of Revelation and in other passages of scripture that the celestial lights represent beings, and stars represent angels in language that expresses what is beyond mere metaphor. I noted from Job 38 how there is a rule fixed in their statutes or ordinances over the land and a binding and loosing. There are demonic regional principalities, like the prince of Persia that opposed Gabriel when dispatched to give a message to the prophet Daniel, and these may be constrained by spells.
Now, the celestial lights proclaim a synchronized testimony about the true Messiah. It must be said that the same account bears a testimony about the Adversary. Think about it. The celestial imagery represented in this Pope's heraldry is a sign, like the star map of the Pleiades at the Hoover Dam is a sign. The celestial-terrestrial alignments and the collections of symbols that picture them engage a mechanism of controlling supernaturalism. There are those who actually do divine and even bind and loose celestial authorities, who are not the frauds many would have you believe they are. The sorcery of the Vatican works. (“for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” Revelation 18:23)
OK. When I wrote that I've been schooled about the celestial signs of my Lord Y'shua's birth, baptism and return and written about these things on The Open Scroll, I don't think that school's out yet. I'm well aware that I remain so ignorant about so much. I do have confidence in my Lord's ability to accomplish what He needs to even with the likes of us. And, I've got confidence in what He's revealed to me, as little or much as that happens to be. I'm confident that there were signs marking the Lord's baptism. I'm pretty convinced there will be signs marking the counterfeit event where some Pope will baptize and anoint the lawless one. Based upon my confidence about what the Lord showed me about the celestial sign of His coming in judgment, and how the baptism of the lawless one is scheduled according to certain patterns related to that event, I know when to expect that baptism. I know the office of at least one of those involved, the baptizer. It may be that this Pope Francis bears in his heraldry the celestial sign of that baptism.
At present, I'm not claiming revelation insight about this sign or drawing conclusions about what role Pope Francis will ultimately play. I'm presenting what I see in this as a watchman on the wall. I believe I know when the baptism will be and it seems plain enough that the celestial imagery on the Pope's heraldry suggests what's going on in the sky at that time. There is more that remains to be written about the celestial and other interpretations of the elements involved (Lord willing), but let's get right to the sign.
Because the Lord's calendar depends upon observing the ripening barley and sighting of the new moon, without revelation insight I cannot declare when exactly the 13th day of the 1st month will arrive in 2015 but I can make a pretty fair projection. A range of dates was gleaned from the record of the past 13 years of accounts provided by Nehemia Gordon, of Karaite-Korner.com. Since 2000, the first month has begun at sunset as early as March 11 and as late as April 13.
I've observed that a full moon always occurs on either the 13th or the 14th day of a month. This observation provides a pretty simple way to recognize the day according to the lunar phase. Within the target range, there's a full moon expected on 4/4/15 at 15:06, a little after 3pm. When the sun sets on April 4th, it seems pretty likely that either the 13 or 14th day of the 1st month will end.
18) Come, let us drink our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with caresses. 19) “For my husband is not at home, he has gone on a long journey; 20) He has taken a bag of money with him, at the full moon he will come home. ~ Proverbs 7:18-20
Who do you suppose that is, the husband of the unfaithful wife?
What Tom Horn wrote in Pt 13: Petrus Romanus is of particular interest. “Like the Maya, the Cherokee calendar ends mysteriously in the year 2012 when astronomical phenomena related to Jupiter, Venus, Orion, and Pleiades cause the 'powers' of the star systems to 'awaken.'” These four should all be in view from Jerusalem during the target season in 2015, looking to the west just after sunset. Given what will happen on the 13th day of the 1st month, the baptism of the lawless one and sign to the Bride, I can only think everyone's attention will be riveted on other kinds of dramatic signs in the heavens and in the earth. The celestial configurations projected to appear at that time have no remarkable features to draw anyone's attention, but with the two planets and two star groupings being mentioned in the Cherokee prophecy in the context of their returning flying rattlesnake god, AND their appearance in the esoteric celestial imagery of the Coat of Arms of Pope Francis, the matter has my attention at present!
For those of you who are curious about some of the details of the celestial configuration, you can use the handy app at skyviewcafe.com or Stellarium or some other planetarium app easily confirm and explore further.
On 4/3/15, the full moon rises in Virgo at 18:12 and the sun sets in Pisces at 19:00. On 4/4, the sunset is the same but the full moon rises at 19:05, again, in Virgo.
Jupiter is in Cancer during the Spring of 2015. The astrological sign of Cancer appears on the keystone of the Masonic tracing board's Royal Arch. Jupiter is the Royal or King planet. The keystone is the most important element of an arch as the “key” that structurally locks it together. I've often wondered what it is about Cancer that is so important that the sign should be exalted to such a place in the Freemason's Royal Arch symbolism. Such an exalted sign fits such an exalted occasion. The revealing of the lawless one is like the crux move in the Adversary's plan. He with his Devil incarnate genetics will be the keystone of the arch bridging heaven and earth.
Jupiter was involved in the sign of my Lord's birth (as the crown of 12 stars). I was not around to see the sign at my Lord's birth, obviously, and He's never shown that to me visually. In 1991, Jupiter was involved in another sign and I did witness it! I watched with wonder as three bright celestial lights came within a half degree of each other in the early morning sky. When that King planet met Mercury at the King Star, Regulus, it was a stunning display and the beginning of the sign of my Lord's return in judgment! Within the space of three hours, Jupiter conjoined Regulus, then Mercury conjoined Regulus, and then Mercury conjoined Jupiter.
In April of 2015, looking west from Jerusalem, Orion will be seen lower in the sky below Cancer. The Pleiades appear in the adjacent Taurus. At the full moon, Venus will be in Aries. This bright planet's course will find it passing very near to the Pleiades, passing conjunction with the cluster on the 10th and 11th of the month.
Optionally, if the barley ripens very late in 2015 and if a 13th month appended to the previous year could possibly accommodate such a schedule, the full moon of May 4th would mark the sign. At that time, Jupiter is still in Cancer, the sun is in Aries, Venus is between the tips of the horns of Taurus (Beta Taurus (Al Nath) and Zeta Taurus) and Mercury will be near to the Pleiades, having passed conjunction with the cluster on 4/30 and 5/1.
We live in interesting times. As the contest of the ages continues to unfold in our midst the Lord Y'shua confirms his Word, drawing His people close and closer. He is so good to us!
