Greetings, Programs!
You all have known me for quite a while now, and you have known that I have played on the edge, even in my Christianity. I saw something on my computer tonight that made even me stop and wonder about my own sanity... I will state what I saw, and then you all can draw straws to come and have me put into a nice white jacket. I'm doing this quickly, so forget about beauty.

I know I this is going to sound like all of those web pages that tell how Hale-Bopp is the herald of the Coming of somebody, and the the Face on Mars is really an image of the shroud of turin. (I can cite these, but I won't) And I KNOW that "no man knows the day or the hour..." and I'm not going to get to that here, but watch what DOES turn up!

I was scanning the news and I saw the image of the sun from SOHO/LASCO.

(Note: The original image is gone missing, but here's one from the day before, you get the idea.) Here's another picture from a few days later.

I knew immediately what I saw, but I also know that people have been seeing these artifacts (the CCD burn-in from bright light sources such as the planets) as "motherships". they are simply the planets closely aligned with the Sun burning out the camera pixels. I could prove that with Starry Night, so I did. I popped open Starry Night and grabbed this image (2012 images taken from Celestia):

(Menkar is a star which means, in arabic, "the nose" More on that later)

I knew that astrologically, this was all in Taurus, but I clicked to see what constellation Menkar was in. I clicked with the Constellation Tool and it showed me the form of Cetus. I popped up the Cetus Info window and saw this:

I chuckled. "Ha... it looks like he's wearing a hat!" Hey, wait a minute! I counted, zoomed back in and counted again. Sitting on top of Cetus' head was

  1. Mars
  2. Saturn
  3. Jupiter
  4. Sun
  5. Mercury
  6. Venus
  7. Moon
SEVEN! Seven astrological planets.. ALL OF THEM! These were ALL of the planets they knew back then, not seeing Uranus, Neptune, Pluto or Nemesis (oops, sorry)
And where were these titans? On the head of Cetus, the FREAKIN Sea Monster! Ready? You are not, I guarantee it!
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy... And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. Revelation (duh) 13:1-3
Suddenly, I saw something interesting.. a DATE! TODAY! 5/4/2000 AD. I switched the location to Greece(Patmos) Now, I know that with the sun shining John couldn't "see" this, but you know how visions go...

  • The Sea Monster (Beast from the Sea)
  • Rising (in the east over the sea from John's viewpoint)
  • having 7 heads (think of them as busts in the Pantheon)
  • 10 horns and 10 crowns (diadems, laurel rings like BenHur got)
    1. Io
    2. Europa
    3. Callisto
    4. Ganymede
    5. Tethys
    6. Dione
    7. Rhea
    8. Titan
    9. Hyperion
    10. Iapetus

But even as I was typing this page, I saw something even more amazing... I finally understood this verse: and upon his heads the name of blasphemy

DOH! Look at the names of the planets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mercury -- Messenger of the Gods (angellos Kyrioi -- Angel of the Lords)
  • Venus -- GODess of Love
  • Sun -- Helios. Apollo Sun God!
  • Moon -- Diana GODdess of Hunting and fertility and insanity, etc
  • Mars -- GOD of War
  • Saturn -- GOD of the Harvest (and which harvest is that?)
  • And last but not least... Jupiter -- GOD of the GODS!

How would John have taken to seeing the planets with names of Pagan Gods... as BLASPHEMY! (Yes, I am yelling)

The 7 heads with the Names of Blasphemy are the Planets on the head of the "sea beast" Cetus, named after Pagan Gods!

Now wait a minute... did one of the "heads receive a blow to the head? And was miraculously healed so that all the world wondered?" You betcha... July 16, 1994... Shoemaker-Levy 9!

"The after-effects of the impacts were visible on Jupiter for nearly a year after the event." (I'd say ONLY a year!!!)
This series of images were taken only 10/31/2000 & 11/9/2000... the wounds are gone! HEALED!

But Wait! There's More!

If this is the "beast from the sea" where is the "Beast from the land"?
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
--Revelation 13:11
Two horns like a lamb? That sounds like Aries, the Ram. But where is Aries these days... you are NOT going to believe this!

RIGHT THERE! Both the Beast from the sea AND the Beast from the land with two horns with ALL 7 planets right between them? I couldn't have cooked up a better batch of fiction if I tried.. and believe me, I've tried! As much as I want this verse to be as literal as possible, and as little as I care or hold to astrology, still it was the calendar system back then. I think John was telling us something between the lines. Perhaps we'd better listen...

All righty, then...

OK, so what do we make of this, besides a good case to have me put away for good!?

I believe that the Bible is very literal in such things as Hell, Salvation, Deity of Jesus, Blood, Resurrection... all that stuff. I also believe that the visions are just that... visions. I do NOT expect to see a literal beast walk onto the beach. No one does. Not even Jack Van Impe! But I do believe that someone will rule the world... the AntiChrist. I suspect that the time is near. And I suspect strongly that this beast in revelation is an Icon. An avatar to represent this world leader in the vision. But IS IT POSSIBLE that John was giving us a big hint at when? By giving us 3 astrological configurations that "he who has wisdom could compute?"

What do we do now? Keep your eyes open... expect something big or significant... a new person, the death of an old person... I honestly don't know. I don't claim a vision here... I just read and I look at the computer monitor. And I tell you what I see.

Keep your eyes open...

PS: I can't resist... I never can. Remember Menkar... the Nose of the Beast. It is the brightest star in Cetus... Ceti Alpha...

As in Ceti Alpha 6, where Khan was marooned in Star Trek ][. Remember Khan, the late 20th century genetically engineered madman who tried to rule the Earth? Now who does THAT sound like? I will give you 666 guesses!

Expect the unbelievable!

May 4th, 2000 WAY late! (reconstituted 5/13/2012)


Less than two days later, this happened Fulfillment of prophecy? Or coincidence? You decide...

Eight years later, he stepped aside for his Benchwarmer, Medvedev. And now, 12 years after this astonomicalogical configuration, he's back. He WAS President, then he WAS NOT, and now he IS. Where have I heard that before?
"The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come."

Is this the only time that a Bible prophecy may have been indicated by an astronomical configuration? Stay tuned...
