The Messiah’s Star – Jupiter and Venus Conjunction
Scripture instructs us to watch for the signs in the heavens. (Luke 21:11, Acts 2:19 etc.)
We read in Genesis 1:14 that God uses the lights in the sky; sun, moon, stars and planets, for signs and seasons.
Genesis 1: 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
In Genesis 1:14, the word seasons is the Hebrew word “mow’ed” which means appointed time. (Strong’s H4150.) These signs in the heavens are intended to be signs that point us to Gods “appointed times.”
Messianic Fulfilled Prophecy of the Star and Sceptre
Numbers 24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
What you just read is the Messianic prophecy that a Star, with a capital “S”, would come out of Jacob. That means there would come a Messiah’s star from the blood line of Israel/Jacob.
Then in Matthew 2:1-2 we read about the fulfillment of the prophecy.
Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
The “star” that was seen by the wise men when they came to Bethlehem to see the Messiah has been identified by many astronomers who looked at the charts of the planets in the sky around the time Jesus was born. The “star” was discovered to actually be the conjunction of Jupiter (the King planet) and Venus (the Morning star.) Click here for more information.
What the Holy Spirit Revealed to me about this Planetary Sign Occurring in June 2015
I believe with all my heart that just as it was a sign to those who were watching for the coming of Messiah when Jesus was born, it is a sign to our generation of the soon second coming of Jesus Christ.
But there is also another very important spiritual significance for us. Jupiter is called the “King planet” and symbolizes Jesus Christ. Venus is called the “morning star” which is also used to symbolize Christ in scripture, (Rev 2:28, Rev 22:16) but in this conjunction, Venus symbolizes the “body of Christ.”
2 Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
On the night of Tuesday June 30th, 2015 go outside and look up in the western sky and you will see Jupiter appear to overtake Venus as Venus moves in front of Jupiter. When this occurs, the two planets will appear to become ONE large light in the night sky with only a very small degree of space between them. NASA is calling this conjunction a “jaw dropping close encounter” and I believe they are prophesying something significant and don’t even know it. NASA says the distance between the two planets will be less than the diameter of a full moon.
The other amazing and unique fact about this June/July 2015 Venus/Jupiter conjunction is that it is occurring in the star constellation of Leo and the brightest star in Leo is Regulus which is called the “Lions heart.” As you know Jesus is the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” (Rev 5:5). This exact configuration has likely not occurred since the birth of Jesus. Here is a quote that confirms this :
Sky & Telescope Contributing Editor Fred Schaaf brings up a very interesting point: this current trio of Venus-Jupiter conjunctions closely resembles a similar series in 3-2 BC that has been suggested as the Star of Bethlehem. “As has been the case in 2014–15,” he explains, “the first two conjunctions back then were extremely close, the last one separated by about 1°, all three occurred not far from Regulus, and all were similarly high up in the sky.” – See more at: http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/observing-news/venus-and-jupiter-a-dazzling-duo-062520154/#sthash.4JzMGFaP.dpuf
What Else Does This Sign Mean for Us?
This sign in the heavens confirms to me what I believe the Lord has been showing me in dreams and visions and revelations, and not just me but many, many other Christians have been shown this for decades. I believe Jesus is about to come to His people as the latter rain. This sign is pointing to a time very soon when Jesus will become ONE with His chosen vessels just as the planet Venus appears to be coming together with Jupiter.
Hosea 6:3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
What this means is that God intends to send a very powerful move of the Holy Spirit that is unlike anything we have ever seen. The Lord will empower the vessels He has chosen to participate in this to the extent that the greater works that Jesus said His disciples would do will finally be seen after nearly 2000 years.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
This latter rain outpouring is intended to bring in a great harvest of souls before the Lord takes His bride to the Fathers house prior to the great tribulation. (James 5:7, John 14:1-4)
In Reverse Order This Time
The conjunction of Jupiter and Venus is what the wise men saw as the Messiahs star when Jesus was born; His first coming. Then after Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father after His resurrection, He sent the Holy Spirit in POWER upon the church. But this time, in our generation, at some point after this star sign of the Messiah, it will happen in reverse order. Jesus will send His Holy Spirit in POWER first, and then at His literal second coming He will descend physically to stand on the Mt. of Olives.
