These are the main constellations of the Mazzaroth. Major stars and the meaning of the star’s names are completed within the constellation.

Virgo, The Seed of the Woman
– Spica = the Branch

Libra, The Required Price Paid
– Zuben alChemali = the price which is deficient
– Zuben alGenubi = the price which covers

Scorpio, The Mortal Conflict
– Antares = the wounding
Decan to Scorpio is Ophiuchus,
– Ras El Hagus = He who holds

Sagittarius, The Final Triumph
– Naim = the Gracious One

Capricorn, Life out of Death
– Al Gedi = Cut off
– Dabih = the Sacrifice slain

Aquarius, Blessing out of Victory
– Sadalmelik = the Record of the pouring out
– Sadalsuud = He who pours out
– Sheat = Who goes and returns

Pisces, Deliverance out of Bondage
– Okda = the United
– Alsamaca = the Upheld

Aries, The Sacrifice, Glory out of Humiliation
– Elnath = wounded, slain
– Sheretan = bruised
– Mesartim = the bound

Taurus, His Glorious Coming
– Al Deberan = the Govenor

Orion, Coming forth as Light
– Betelgeuse = The Coming of the Branch
– Rigel = The Foot that Crushes
– Bellatrix = Quickly Coming, Swiftly Destroying
(Note Orion is a decan constellation)

Gemini, His Rule on Earth
– Pollux = Wounded, Afflicted
– Castor = Ruler, Judge

Cancer, His Possessions Held Secure
– Tegmine = Holding

Leo, His Enemies Destroyed
– Regulus = Treading Underfoot
– Denebola = The Judge who Comes
– Algiebha = The Exhaltation

 

It’s interesting to note that Ophiuchus, the decan to Scorpio, is restraining the serpent with his heel on the scorpion. The star Antares meaning wounding is the foot of Ophiuchus and the head of Scorpio.

Also, Sagittarius the archer’s arrow is pointed at the heart of Scorpio.

Maybe meant to be part of the same since they share a major star and this prophecy.

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise Him on the heel.

Evil vs. God… Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , on May 31, 2018 by paulthepoke

Genesis 3:4-5 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

 philkulis-picEvil is a necessary contrast to God.
How else would we know Good?

But how does God get rid of Evil when those who know the difference choose Him?

He gave Satan power, free will and eternal life. Can He just renege on what He gave?

Mankind may be a forum to reveal Himself, then permanently destroy Evil and Death.

It seems to me that if Evil took away God’s power, free will and life by throwing Him in prison, judging Him, nailing Him to a cross and killing Him, then God is justified in doing the same in return.

 

Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people He will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken.

1 Corinthians 15:54-57 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 21:4-6 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And He who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also He said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.

 

Millennial Kingdom: Ending Hunger

Posted in Millennial Kingdom, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2016 by paulthepoke

Genesis 3:17b-19 …Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; and you will eat the plants of the field; by the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.

In the Millennial Kingdom, the Genesis curse will be reversed. Adam’s choice to eat the forbidden fruit resulted in a curse to the ground. Because of this, we have weeds and thorns. Food does not grow as plentiful as intended. Acquisition of food is by hard, laborious work and effort. Sweat was not originally intended. Sweat is a consequence of the fall in Eden.

In Romans, the Apostle Paul confirms the earth is still under the curse even though Christ has died for sin. The fact we still have thorns and thistles on plant life confirms the ongoing curse. Check out a rose or a cactus. They are reminders of the fall of man. The land has yet to be freed from bondage. The redemptive and liberating event remains in the future as of 2016 AD.

Romans 8:19-22 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

Here is a glimpse into the future. The Bible describes what agricultural production will be during the Millennial Kingdom under Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 8:12 For there will be peace for the seed: the vine will yield its fruit, the land will yield its produce…

The Hebrew word for “peace” is Shalom. Per Strong’s Concordance, it means: peace, quiet, tranquility, contentment, welfare, health, prosperity; completeness (in number); safety, soundness (in body).

The seeds of plants and trees will no longer face a hostile soil or earth. They will grow in a safe and tranquil environment, free to grow to their potential.

Ezekiel 36:29b-30 …and I will call for the grain and multiply it, and I will not bring a famine on you. I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the produce of the field, so that you will not receive again the disgrace of famine among the nations.

Joel 2:22b … for the open pastures are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig-tree and the vine yield their riches.

Joel 2:24 The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.

Isaiah 30:23b …and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous…

Say goodbye to commercials with starving children. Jesus will end hunger once and for all.

Name Game: Israel to Hephzibah, Beulah Land

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2015 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 62:1-4 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet, until her righteousness goes forth like brightness, and her salvation like a torch that is burning. The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; and you will be called by a new name which the mouth of the LORD will designate. You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,” nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”; but you will be called, “My delight is in her,” and your land, “Married”; for the LORD delights in you, and to Him your land will be married.

Genesis 32:28 He said, “Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed.”

Banias-waterfalls

There is yet another name coming for the people and nation who are known as Israel. God Himself will make the change. The Bible says that name will be Hephzibah.

The name Hephzibah is noted one other place in the Bible. She was the mother of King Manasseh and queen to King Hezekiah. 2 Kings 21:1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Hephzibah. Per Strong’s Concordance, her name means: My delight is in her.

The land will undergo a name change as well, “married” or Beulah. Per Strong’s Beulah means:  to marry, rule over, possess, own, be lord (husband) over. The relationship between God and the land is that of a marriage covenant. Some know the term from the southern hymn “Sweet Beulah Land”.

This likely speaks to the reversal of the curse on the land. Genesis 3:17a Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; cursed is the ground because of you… The Apostle Paul confirms the curse of the land in the New Testament. Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

God is a redeemer and restorer. Revelation 21:5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

Israel will no longer wrestle with God or with the nations of humanity. The struggle will end.

For the nations hostile to Israel who say, “Israel will be no more…” They are correct.

God and Israel will prevail. God’s delight will be in His chosen people, Hephzibah… and the land, Beulah.

Trend Update: Earthquakes in Various Places, February 2015

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2015 by paulthepoke

Mark 13:7-8 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.    –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Luke 21:11. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

What state had the most earthquakes in 2014? Alaska or California? Wrong answer, Oklahoma! Ten years ago, would anyone have predicted Oklahoma would have the most earthquakes in the United States, Right?!? Recent trends have shown a significant increase in seismic activity in the Sooner state. Are these acts of God? Is it because of fracking in the oil and gas industry?

quakesOK

Does humanity have a history of impacting the environment? Absolutely, from the beginning of time. Genesis 3:17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.”

Isaiah 24:5-6 The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.

Romans 8:19-22 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

There is clearly an increased trend of earthquake activity on planet earth. The numbers tell the story. See post link for more details.

Earthquake-chart

Check Mark 13:7-8 against today’s world. Are there wars and rumors of wars? Are nations and kingdoms threatening each other? Are there earthquakes in various places? Are there places of famine in today’s world?

The point of the blog is this. The claim is NOT being made that now (February 2015) is this time. The point is; the conditions of the Mark 13:7-8 are noted in today’s world.

If now (February 2015) is the time Jesus is referring to, this is only the beginning…

Just a reminder, we are still waiting on a temple to be rebuilt.

Resurrection for All, Part 2

Posted in Gospel, Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 26:19 Your dead will live; their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, for your dew is as the dew of the dawn, and the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.

The text makes it very clear. These people are dead. The Hebrew word for dead in this case is muwth. It means to die (as a penalty), to be put to death, or to die prematurely (by neglect of wise moral conduct). Humanity was originally created to be eternal. We are reminded death is a result of sinful choices. The body is a corpse, a carcass. The executed are buried and taking a dirt nap.

But as the pattern of Scripture, the dead are called and commanded. The Hebrew grammar states these dead bodies are caused to wake up. Something, God, has acted on the dead bodies to cause them to awaken. Their response to being resurrected is an intensive, crying yell for joy according to the original grammar. This seems to be a plausible response if you had been dead for years.

Again, the text confirms the original point. These people were dead. The Hebrew word for departed spirits is rapha’. Per Strong’s Concordance, rapha’ means spirit or ghost of the dead. Body and spirit have been reunited.

There are cultural implications regarding dust to the Jew. God created from Adam from dust. Adam returned to the dust as a result of sin/death. Genesis 3:19 “By the sweat of your face You will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Dust is associated with death. Psalm 22:15b…And You lay me in the dust of death. Dust is the fate of humans and animals as noted in Ecclesiastes 3:20 Both go to the same place, both come from the dust, and to dust both return.

Whereas dust is associated with death, dew is associated with life. Dew is a symbol of fertility and life (NET Bible). The context of the verses is nation Israel and their dead. This verse says Israel’s dead will be a symbol of life and rebirth to the world. After approximately 2,000 years of being exiled from their land and dead as a nation, this has literally come to pass. In 1948, Israel became a nation again, a resurrected country. See Ezekiel 37, the valley of dry bones, for more detail. In the future of April 2014, there will be multiple resurrections of the dead.

The resurrection of Jesus demonstrates mastery over death and sin. Isaiah 25:18 He will swallow up death for all time, and the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, and He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; for the LORD has spoken.

Isaiah 11:6-8 The Earth is Cursed, Still

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 11:6-8 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

The earth in its current status (February 2014) is still cursed. The curse finds its origin in the sin of Adam.

Genesis 3:17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; cursed is the ground because of you; In toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

God wasted no time with the curse on the ground. The environment changed quickly. Finding food was clearly becoming an issue relative to the perfectly created Earth. From Adam to Noah in nine generations, the cursed ground was taking its toll. Man was having to work harder in order to eat. Genesis 5:29 Now he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will give us rest from our work and from the toil of our hands arising from the ground which the LORD has cursed.”

It is true, Noah (meaning rest or comfort) did provide humanity relief. If it were not for him building an ark, we would not be here. Conditions on Earth continued to become more difficult for growing food after the flood. Lot chose the lush and fertile Jordan valley near Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 13. This area is described as similar to the Garden of the Lord in Genesis 13:10 prior to its destruction. Today we know this area around the Dead Sea to be a barren, desert wasteland.

Romans 8:20-22 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. Today, the creation continues to groan. We are still dealing with the effect of Adam’s choice. Prophecy tells us the growing conditions will get worse before it gets better. For now, we hold to the words of the Apostle Peter. 2 Peter 3:13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

God Himself comments in Isaiah 65:17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. This concept is noted in the Old and New Testaments. Revelation 21:5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

This earthly curse will be reversed.
