Jupiter & Venus Conjunction
June 30, 2015
Venus and Jupiter will be in conjunction June 30, 2015 in the constellation Leo for the first time in 2000+ years. It is widely believed that this conjunction is the one the Magi observed and followed to Bethlehem. Is this a sign of The Lion of Judah’s soon return near?
Why the conjunction is significant it is made more clear if we understand the meanings of stars and constellations.
Leo – Constellation
Leo is known as The Lion. The Hebrew word used for lion in the constellation is “Arieh”, which means the lion hunting down his prey. The King aroused for the rendering of His fierce wrath with the serpent fleeing with the Bowl of Wrath upon him.
All the stars in the constellation Leo magnify and exalt Him as the Coming Conquer and Judge.
Jupiter – Planet
Jupiter’s meaning is “Almighty God”, “Sovereign, Authority, Victory of the Cross” which end summed up means, “the Lord Jesus Christ as the Almighty God.”
Is.9:6 “For to us a child was born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Psalm 97:9 “For you, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above gods.”
Venus – Planet
Venus meaning is Morning Star and represents Jesus in His Second Coming. Rev. 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
Regulus – Star
The brightest star is Regulus and its meaning “treading under foot” and represents the heart of the Lion.
Denebola – Star
Denebola is located in the tip of the tail of the lion and means, “the Judge” or “Lord who cometh”.
Deneb Aleced -Star
Deneb Aleced means, “the judge cometh who seizes”.
Al Dafera – Star
Al Dafera means, “the enemy put down”.
Al Giebha – Star
Al Giebha is located in the hind part of the back and means, “the exaltation”.
Zosma – Star
Zosma is also located in the hind part of the back and means “shining forth”.
So what does this alignment mean for our time?
In Genesis 1:14 God placed the lights in the heavens as to separate the day and night and for signs and for seasons (moed: appointed time, place, or meeting)
14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
We know that Christ birth was signaled to the world by a sign in the heavens. The Magi arrived inquiring to King Herod as to “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” Mat.2:2.
The time of King Herod’s death is disputed to this day. What we can say that his death was between 4 BCE and 1BCE. This places Jesus’ birth at least a year or two before 1 BCE.
I believe the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the constellation Leo on June 30, 2015, which falls on the middle between the period of the 2015 blood red moons, signals of Christ’s second advent is near.
The first time Jesus came as the Lamb slain but the second time He will come as the Conquering King. He will collect His bride and set up His Kingdom on earth.
According to Matthew 24 there will be signs in the heavens and in the earth below of the judgements of God upon mankind for his wickedness at the end of the age.
So make an effort this evening after sundown to gaze into the western sky and observe the sign in the heaven above. Is this a sign of The Lion of Judah’s soon return near?
Rejoice but remain prayerful before God for He is coming soon.
