Scorpio, the Scorpion. 
Main star = Antares “the wounding” at the head of the scorpion.

Stellarium

Genesis 3:15 “He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise His heel.”

A decan constellation Ophiuchus, the serpent holder is depicted as having his foot on the head or back of the scorpion.

The star Antares is the head of Scorpio and at the foot of Ophiuchus.

Stellarium

1 Samuel 17:54 Then David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his weapons in his tent.

A seed of the woman in the line of the Messiah (David) bruised the head of the seed of the serpent (Goliath). David then took Goliath’s head to Jerusalem.

John 19:17 They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.

Jesus was crucified at Golgotha (GOLiath was from GATH) “the place of the skull” where His heel was bruised with a nail through the foot.

Passover: Hyssop

Posted in Gospel, Prophecy, Spring Feasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 3, 2016 by paulthepoke

Exodus 12:22 You shall take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood which is in the basin, and apply some of the blood that is in the basin to the lintel and the two doorposts; and none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning.

Hyssop is used in the directions of the Passover celebration for the Israelites.

The Hebrew word for hyssop is ‘ezowb. Per Strong’s Concordance it is a plant used for medicinal and religious purposes.

Many conjectures have been formed as to what this plant really was. Some contend that it was a species of marjoram (origanum), six species of which are found in Palestine. Others with more probability think that it was the caper plant, the Capparis spinosa of Linnaeus. This plant grew in Egypt, in the desert of Sinai, and in Palestine. It was capable of producing a stem three or four feet in length. -NET Bible

Psalms 51:7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Hyssop is like bleach for sin. Purify or chata’ in the Hebrew means: to bear loss; to make a sin-offering; to purify from sin; to purify from uncleanness.

Numbers 19:18 A clean person shall take hyssop and dip it in the water, and sprinkle it on the tent and on all the furnishings and on the persons who were there, and on the one who touched the bone or the one slain or the one dying naturally or the grave.

Hyssop is required for ceremonial cleanliness when a person came in contact with dead bodies or dead animals. Cleanliness kept the Israelite from being cut off from the assembly.

Leviticus 14:52 He shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the running water, along with the live bird and with the cedar wood and with the hyssop and with the scarlet string.

Another example of ritual cleaning involves the use of hyssop in a leprous house. Hyssop is involved in the law of leprosy (Leviticus 14:33-57).

Jesus Christ’s work on the cross is our purification for sin. John 1:29 Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!  Jesus is the sacrificial paschal lamb. Christ’s crown of thorns is the brushed blood on the lintel of the door. He is the shed blood on the doorposts with His outstretched arms on the cross.

John 19:29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.

1 John 1:7b … and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Passover, Nisan 14, Friday, 33 AD

John 19:31 Then the Jews, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. The Sabbath is Saturday. The day before Saturday is Friday. The Jews wanted to make sure everyone was dead before the Sabbath.

John 18:39 “But you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover; do you wish then that I release for you the King of the Jews?” – Pilate

John 19:14 Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!” – Pilate

Luke 22:15 And He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer… -Jesus. Remember the sun had already set. The new day had begun and it was early Friday. With God, the next day starts when the sun sets on the previous day (Genesis 1, Creation Week).

Luke 23:54 It was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

Mark 15:42 When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the SabbathThe context of these 2 verses (Luke 23, Mark 15) is the preparation of Jesus’ body in the tomb before sundown. There was a mad dash to get Jesus off of the cross and buried before the Sabbath. It was not yet Saturday, so it had to be Friday.

Jesus, the Passover lamb, died the day before the Sabbath on Friday.

Isaiah 10:17 God and Light

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2013 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 10:17 And the light of Israel will become a fire and his Holy One a flame, and it will burn and devour his thorns and his briars in a single day.

Light of Israel is a term and reference to God. Psalm 104:2 Covering Yourself with light as with a cloak…God is light and a source of light. It is symbolic or purity and holiness. John 1:9 refers to a light of the world who is Jesus. Revelation 21:23 tells us the Lamb of God (Jesus) is the light of the New Jerusalem. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

Holy could also be translated separate or sacred per Strong’s Concordance. The Holy One of Israel is often associated with a coming Jewish Messiah in the Old Testament. Christ is referred to as the Holy One of God by evil spirits in Mark 1:24. Unclean spirits realized who Jesus was.  Jesus is stated to be Holy and true in Revelation 3:7.

Again, there are three more references to flames and fire in this verse.

This event will occur in one, single day. ‘echad is the Hebrew word for single. In today’s world of November 2013, are we familiar with weapons that could cause prolific damage and destruction to a region in a single day? A sudden event capable of wiping out vegetation?

Notice the vegetation of the land of the King of Assyria. It is briars and thorns, symbols of sin. His actions result in a literal forest of sin.

Isaiah 10:18-19 And He will destroy the glory of his forest and of his fruitful garden, both soul and body, and it will be as when a sick man wastes away. And the rest of the trees of his forest will be so small in number that a child could write them down.

He, God, the Holy One will be the agent of destruction of the King’s plants. Trees and food sources will be destroyed completely. The Hebrew word for wastes is macac. This verb could also be translated to melt or dissolve. God brings a fire so intense, that in a single day it will melt and dissolve the king’s abundant and prolific garden.

The destruction across the region is so complete, that a young child could count what is left over.
