Virgo’s Spica, The Branch…Featuring Phil Kulis

philkulis-picThe meaning of the Constellations of the Mazzaroth.

The main star in Virgo the Virgin is Spica, in the Hebrew it’s Tsemech. It means “Branch”.

There are four places in the Old Testament where the word “Branch”, translated from Tsemech (Strong H6780), is identified with the Messiah.

1) As King in Jeremiah 23:5 Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.

 
2) As Servant in Zechariah 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who sit before you, for they are men who are a sign: behold, I will bring my servant the Branch.

 
3) As Man in Zechariah 6:12 And say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: for he shall branch out from his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.

 
4) As God in Isaiah 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel.

 

Notice these are the same aspects of Christ in the Gospels.
Matthew = Messiah as King
Mark = Messiah as Servant
Luke = Messiah as Man
John = Messiah as God

 

In Revelation the Four Living Creatures also have these same features.

Revelation 4:7 The first living creature was like a lion (king), the second living creature like a calf (servant), the third living creature had a face like a man (man), and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle (God).

The Branch is a descendant of David.

Jeremiah 33:15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
