Countdown to Meet the Morning Star

The next event on my radar is the upcoming Jupiter-Venus conjunction on November 13th. It seems to continue the celestial story of Revelation 12. I suppose it’s just a sign of things to come, but it is very interesting nonetheless and we would all do well to be especially watchful as the Fall 2017 window comes to a close.

The Great Sign of Revelation 12:1-2 (or perhaps more technically, Rev. 12:1-2a) was fulfilled on September 23rd to 24th. Based on my understanding of the sequence of events in this chapter, the next event to be fulfilled is the rapture of the Church rather than the Sign of the Dragon.

Jupiter was “born” on either September 9th or October 13th depending on which set of stars you consider to be the boundary of Virgo’s womb. The next “sign” we might expect to see is the catching up of the male child to God’s Throne and November 13th is a good candidate – at least for the male child (the Church) being joined to the Head (Christ). I want to emphasize that I only see this as a possible sign, and like I’ve always said, signs and the events themselves don’t necessarily happen at the same time.

Furthermore, there are four other bits of evidence that add weight to the significance of this conjunction and the possibility it is portraying the male child’s rapture:

1. Jupiter (the male child) leaves Virgo (the woman, Israel), around the same time Mars (war) enters Virgo. This is the exact order of events prophesied to occur in relation to the Tribulation. The Church is raptured and then Israel enters into a period of war and tribulation.

2. In October, after Jupiter is birthed, the planet moves from being visible in the evening sky to being visible in the morning sky. The child transitions from a child of darkness to a child of light. We are called “children of the light and children of the day” (1 Thess. 5:5) in the same passage of Scripture where the rapture is revealed and described.

3. Considering that Venus represents the Glorified Christ, once we are also glorified, we the Body will be joined to the Head and we will be with Christ forever. We will never be separated from Him again. Since we will be glorified, united with Christ, and given co-rulership with Christ, there would seem to be a transition and transfer of sorts. For this reason, it might be better to look only to Venus after the November 13th conjunction.

4. Lastly, WatchForTheDay has found some interesting numbers that all point to November 13th.
