In these last days I believe God is especially speaking to His people in two ways: the Book of Malachi and the constellations, especially Taurus and its Deacons. It is significant that a Blood Red Moon was seen in the constellation Taurus Nov. 18, 2021, as signaling us to get ready for God’s move.
The Book of Malachi begins with God’s accusation on the people for not honoring Him as God –
“A son honors his father, And a servant his master. If then I am the Father, Where is My honor? And if I am a Master, Where is My reverence? Says the LORD of hosts . . .” – Mal. 1:6
God then proceeds to accusing the priests (pastors) –
“And now, O priests, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear, and if you will not take it to heart, to give glory to My name,” says the LORD of hosts, “I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to heart. . . . Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, That My covenant with Levi may continue, says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 2:1-4
America was founded by God fearing Christians, both Pilgrims and Puritans and they made a Covenant with God to proclaim Jesus as the Christ and the only way to heaven. And God honored that covenant with His blessings until America has become the most prosperous of nations. Now we have become an apostate nation under the influence of liberals, progressives, and communists and other anti-patriots. We have taken down the Ten Commandments from our public places, removed prayer from our schools, and celebrated immorality in our entertainment and in our government as it has encoded laws protecting LGBT gay rights and other anti-Christian stands.
God brought the first woman to man and told them to be fruitful with godly offspring, but we have killed millions by abortion, thus robbing God and ourselves of His blessings. And God gave us pastors to warn against these things and tell us the truth but they have forsaken the Levitical Covenant God made with pastors. What is that you say, well I’ll say it as God Himself says it –
“My covenant was with him (Levi), one of life and peace, and I gave them to him that he might fear Me; So he feared Me and was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity, and turned many away from iniquity. For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 2:5-7
Pastors were never meant to be the employees of some Denomination or any congregation of people. They are to be called by and for God as His messengers! But we have made them subjects of denominations, denominations who no longer believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus or in His resurrection or in the infallibility of the Scriptures! Whole denominations now deny the basic tenants of Christianity and swallow the lies of evolution, thus denying the creation, the fall to sin, and the coming of the Savior – Jesus Christ.
A 1963 survey of church members shows that only 34% of United Methodists believe that “Jesus was born of a virgin” and is “completely true.”
God continues declaring how He is against the destruction of the family saying, “For the LORD God of Israel says that He hates divorce”, and not dispensing justice by saying “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD and He delights in him.” They call the proud blessed, for those who do wickedness are raised up. They even tempt God and go free. Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann was acquitted Tuesday of lying to the FBI (When he himself admitted his guilt), in the first trial of special counsel John Durham’s investigation. The verdict is a major defeat for Durham and his Justice Department prosecutors, who have spent three years looking for wrongdoing in the Trump-Russia probe. I question Durham’s commitment as well. He should have known better than to try Sussmann in Wahington DC with a jury packed with Democrat liberals and then expecting a guilty verdict. Is this not raising up the wicked?
The Book of Malachi is an indictment on the United States and its government, its churches, its other institutions, and its people!
Finally, God pronounces His answer to all this wickedness, the Day of the Lord is coming!
“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” Says the LORD of hosts.” – Mal. 3:1
But, His coming will not be as many in Christendom have portrayed it, it will be with fire and burning!
“But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi (pastors), and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness.” – Mal. 3:2-3
This reminds me of Jesus’ counsel to the lukewarm church of Laodicea in Revelation – “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed” While this judgement begins with the pastors, it does not stop there –
“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Mal. 4:1
Who can endure the day of His coming? Well, God declares there will be some who endure –
“Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so, a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name. “They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels. and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.” – Mal. 3:16-18
And in the midst of the burning day of the Lord, God declares that –
“But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves.” – Mal. 4:2
Finally, before these days, God announces that He is going to send the prophet Elijah with a message –
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Ma. 4:5-6
This is revealing God’s love for the family, fathers and children. Earlier in Malachi God calls it His holy institution, which He loves (Mal. 2:11). Just how will Elijah do this? He will once again restore the Ten Commandments to their rightful place in society.
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel (the Ten Commandments), with the statutes and judgments.” – Mal. 4:4
All God has intended for the earth and for mankind He has displayed in the heavenly Constellations. The entire Book of Malachi is displayed in the constellation Taurus and its three Deacons; Orion, Eridanus, and Auriga.
I have written previously about the constellation Virgo and the part Jupiter plays in the Revelation 12 sign as it leaves Virgo on its way to Taurus, where it will meet Mars on August 13, 2024. Remember, the Hebrew name for the constellation Taurus is Shur which means ‘coming to judge’. The Hebrew name for Mars is Ma-Adim which means ‘the red one’ or ‘the Son of Man’. Also in the constellation Taurus is a cluster of stars known as the Pleiades which means ‘the congregation’. The clear meaning of this is “The Son of Man comes to judge with His Congregation, or saints.”
The first Deacon, Orion means “He who comes forth as light, the Brilliant, the Swift.” The Arabs called him Al Giauza (the Branch), Al Mirzam (the Ruler), and Al Nagjed (the Prince). This constellation represents the coming Messiah who is coming swiftly to destroy His enemies.
Orion is known as the mighty hunter, holding a mighty club in his right hand and a lion’s skin in his left hand. He wears a brilliant starry girdle to which hangs a mighty sword, the hilt of which is the head and body of a Lamb. His right shoulder is marked by the bright star Betelgeuse, his left shoulder by the star Bellatrix and his uplifted foot by the star Rigel. Betelgeuse means “the Branch coming”, Bellatrix means “Swiftly coming or Suddenly destroying”, and Rigel means “the Foot that crushes”. The three stars, from which hangs a glorious sword are known as the Three Kings and also as Jacob’s Rod. Just as Isaiah wrote –
“There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. … Righteousness shall be the belt of His loins, And faithfulness the belt of His waist.” – Isa. 11:1-5
The second Deacon is found beneath the uplifted foot of Orion and is a great tortuous river, flowing eastward and westward, and down into the regions of darkness in the underworld. Its name is Eridanus, which means the River of the Judge. In Daniel’s vision of the four beasts and of God’s judgement of them, we find this same river of the judge. Daniel said –
“I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. (It is the River of the Judge, for we read) . . . The court was seated, and the books were opened. I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.” – Dan. 7:9-11
Isaiah writes – “For behold, the LORD will come with fire And with His chariots, like a whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword The LORD will judge all flesh; And the slain of the LORD shall be many.” – Isa. 66:15-16. But even in the midst of judgement, God will show mercy for there will still be a chance “to be saved so as by fire” (1 Cor. 3:15). As Isaiah wrote, “For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” (Isa. 26:9). After God showed Daniel His judgements on the four beasts He said –
“And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.” – Dan. 12:9-10
The third Deacon is found above Orion and is a mighty man seated on the Milky Way, holding a band in his right hand and with his left arm holding up on his should a she-goat, which clings to his neck and looks out in astonishment upon the terrible Bull, Shur (Taurus); whilst in his lap are two frightened little kids which he supports with his great hand. This is the constellation Auriga. The Noetic origins of the word Auriga signify the Shepherd. He is the Good Shepherd who laid down His life for the sheep and here is seen firmly grasping the mother goat on his arm with her feet clasped around his neck and the little kids in His hand. The Band is the Band of power with which the head if the Church upholds and guides His people on the one side, and binds the enemy on the other. This is a picture of the almighty Savior exercising His offices of mercy and salvation in the midst of the scenes of judgement just as Scripture says.
“O LORD, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.” – Hab. 3:2
This constellation is fulfilling Isaiah’s word, “Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.” – Isa. 40:10-11
So, we have Taurus the Bull and its three Deacons portraying the coming of the Day of the Lord as Malachi prophesies. Taurus (Shur) representing the Christ coming with His saints to judge the earth; Orion the mighty Hunter whose foot is raised to crush his enemies; Eridanus the fiery river of judgment sweepy all before it; and Auriga the Good Shepherd protecting the flock from the fiery judgement that is poured out and binding the enemy with bands that cannot be broken while providing safety for those who fear the Lord.
There is reason for deep concern as the sign of Taurus will be fulfilled August 13, 2024, not far away. I pray all will listen to the message of the coming Elijah to return to the Lord and His Commandments and restore our families to a Biblical foundation.
