THE YEAR 2007
The year 2007 appears to be a most significant year regarding end-of-world prophecies and the signs in the sky which are astoundingly clear. As I will explain later, the importance of the number "seven" seems to indicate that 2007 begins a seven year period of world-ending events, to culminate in 2014 with the magnetic reversal of earth's polarity, along with the Matthew 24 description of earthís destruction. This is all according to Godís grand Design.

SIGNS IN THE SKY
1. JANUARY 10 TO AUGUST 21, 2007: CHRIST STEPS ON SERPENTíS HEAD as fulfillment of Genesis 3:15. Here are the details: This year of 2007 is exceptional because the King planet, Jupiter, the most important indicator for ancient wise men, stops exactly in Ophiuchus' left foot, above the stinger of Scorpio (Ophiuchus is a Christ constellation and 13th Zodiac), to then reverse course (apparent retrograde motion from earthís point of view) and then stops exactly in Ophiuchus right foot to turn Direct again. Jupiter seems to be indicating the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15. Ophiuchus is the Serpent Holder, who struggles to hold a long huge snake which crosses his abdomen with its head reaching for the Corona Borealis (Northern Crown) as though grasping for the crown of dominion. Ophiuchus (Christ) prevents the serpent from attaining the Crown.
On this date of Jan 10, 2007, when Jupiter first crossed the right foot of Ophiuchus, above the Scorpion's head: Pres. Bush spoke his "Address to Nation", and announced that the big troop surge in Iraq had just began. The Armageddon battle begins!
JAN 11, 07: Jupiter (Direct) crosses Antares @ 15 23' Scorpio. Antares (fixed star in Scorpio, a red giant, considered by ancients to be one end of the axis of the Zodiac, the other end being Aldebaran in Taurus) is considered either the heart or head of the Serpent/Scorpio. Antares means Anti-Mars; "Ares" is Greek for the Latin Mars. Jupiter will cross Antares three times; this was the first.
APRIL 6, 07: JUPITER AT LEFT FOOT of Ophiuchus (we see his back), turns retrograde, @ 24 56' Scorpio.
On this date: Weather freeze across much of U.S. Fruit crops froze out. We had heavy snowfall on that day in Virginia. There will be no tree fruits like apples, peaches, or any berries like blueberries or raspberries. Except for third-world imports to America, we would have very little fruit this year. Europe is also being hit hard by extreme cold.
JULY 24, 07: Jupiter (retrograde); again crosses Antares, heart of Scorpion @ 15 23' Scorpio.
AUGUST 7, 07: JUPITER STOPS AT RIGHT FOOT of Ophiuchus, turns Direct, @ 15 04' Scorpio. This foot is directly above the serpentís head; CHRIST STEPS ON SATANíS HEAD; here is an indicator of the fulfillment of the prophecy in Genesis 3:15
We would look for something to indicate a crushing of Satanís head. Bernanke, head of Federal Reserve (US Central Banking cabal of Jewish banks = Satanís head), began the financial crash of the worldís economies with his speech and announcement to make no change in the interest rate. Immediately after his speech the stock market plummeted, and has continued to writhe in spastic dives and jerk-ups ever since. We can watch the financial chart diagrams to see the Serpent/Beast of Satan writhing, and seeming to recover occasionally by the intervention of the worldsí central banks to inflate the currencies by huge percentages.
As I work up this article on August 9, Ď12, financial analysts are still saying that a global economic crash is inevitable and unstoppable. Such a crash would definitely be the destruction of the anti-Christ Beast which has oppressed Godís children for so long. This will lead to the fall of Babylon, described in Revelation 18.
AUGUST 21, 07: Jupiter (Direct) crosses the star, Antares for third time, heart/head of Scorpion @ 15 23' Scorpio. Jupiter is conjunct with Moon & Antares. Sun is conjunct with Saturn and Regulus at 3 Leo. As Jupiter points to Antares at this time, we might wonder if he is also indicating that the arrow of the Archer of Sagittarius is fatally striking the heart of the Serpent/Scorpio/Beast.
2. AUGUST 28, 2007: GRAND CROSSin the sky indicates the death of World kingdom. Here are the details:
THE GRAND CROSS is Godís SIGN in sky, perhaps indicating the death of World. It was at about 6:30am EDT, Tuesday morning when THE GRAND CROSS occured, something which may not have happened for over 2,000 years. All four of the following fixed stars were most important to the ancient wise men. On this date they have the four appropriate, corresponding planets in conjunction with them. Jupiter (Direct) is conjunct with ANTARES in Scorpio (all the following is sidereal zodiac), while Mars (warrior/Archer?) is in direct opposition to it, being conjunct with ALDEBARAN in Taurus. The Sun is conjunct with REGULUS in Leo, and the Moon is conjunct with FOMALHAUT in Aquarius.
All this happens at the very moment of the Total Lunar Eclipse which will be one of the longest eclipses in history, 90 minutes. It strikes me that if Godís signs in the sky mean anything at all, then THIS has got to be BIG, really BIG!!! When I consider this cross, I wonder if this is the crossing of the cusp between the ages of Pisces and Aquarius, the end of one age and the beginning of another. It also happens that all the other planets are closely grouped with these four, so that they are all participants in the great Cross. There are no planets scattered which are not part of this Cross. I canít help but wonder if this Cross is not related to that Cross on Golgotha, on earth as in heaven.
Luke 21:25 says, "there will be signs in the Sun and the Moon and the Stars, and upon earth distress among nations, perplexed at the roaring of the sea and waves. People will faint from fear and foreboding of the things coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken."
If we consider the seven-year model as beginning with the Grand Cross of August 28, 2007, then the mid-point of a final week of years 3.5 yrs from this date is Feb 26, 2011. While no major event happened on that exact date, it was only a few days later that a 9.0 earthquake struck Fukushima, Japan, beginning a disaster whose effects will be felt for years after. So, if that EQ marks the 3.5 year mid-point, the ending date might be September 2014. We should keep in mind that the dates of events may defy exact calculations; sky-signs foretell events to be at some unknown time ahead.
As we watch the current civilization crashing, it seems most reasonable to interpret this Grand Cross as the death of the world Beast, but I have a feeling that it represents another crucifixion of the Christ, actually of the entire body of Christ. We must all die in order to be born anew in the coming kingdom of Heaven. It is my feeling that the Christ death is a far more important event because it is our Liberation from the World kingdom to God's kingdom.
3. OCTOBER 24, 2007 to JANUARY 22, 2008: COMET HOLMES USES CHRISTíS SWORD TO KILL SATAN.Here are the details:
October 24, 2007: Comet HOLMES, of the Jupiter family, crossed Perseusí waist, then circled upward toward his sword arm, suddenly, on Oct 24, exploding into 3rd magnitude brightness. Then, visible to the naked eye, Holmes picked up the sword and circled downward toward Perseusí other hand which was holding the star Algol which represents the head of Satan.
(Note: Algol is from Ra's al Ghul=The Demon's Head. also known as Caput Algol or Caput Medusae. Known as Lillith to the Jews: the nocturnal vampire said to be Adam's wife. To the Chinese it is known as Tseih She or piled up corpses. Algol = Satan. Interestingly, on Apr 11, Ď96 the comet Hyakutake crossed Algol; on Apr 11, Ď97 comet Hale-Bopp crossed Algol at 90 to Hyakutakeís path making a cross.)
January 22, 2008: Holmes crossed directly over Algol, completing its circle around Perseus and then headed toward the constellation Leo, where it touched the Lionís forehead and stopped (a knighting or anointing or crowning a new king?). Holmes then went retrograde and circled around to pass just above the star Regulus, the heart of Leo, which is one of the four great fixed stars in the sky which formed the Grand Cross of August 28, 2007.
HERE IS AN ILLUSTRATION OF COMET HOLMESí PATH
From the upper right corner, the comet circles at Perseus, then stops at the forehead of Leo, then circles to pass just above Regulus in Leo, usually considered the heart of the lion but shown here in a leg. The comet actually travels a straight path but it appears to circle and reverse because we view it from our planet which is moving.

BIBLE PARADIGMS & PROPHECIES
Many Bible history events serve as models which get repeated again and again. Therefore, such models or paradigms serve as prophetic. Our present history is a third event of such a model which I will explain. The 400 year sojourn of our Israelite Family in Egypt was completed with a sacrifice of a lamb, whose blood was smeared on the door frame, and then the people were liberated by a supernatural event, followed by a wilderness time and then they were led into a Promised Land by Joshua [Joshua is the Aramaic version of his real name which was Iesus].
Of course, we know that Passover event of 1445BC was prophetic of a later Lamb of God sacrifice and liberation/redemption of God's Family, with a promise of a future Promised Land to which Jesus will lead us.
Now, at the end of the Christian era, the Age of Pisces/Jesus, we are completing a 400 year period similar to the Egypt oppression of our people. Then we will be liberated from World by a supernatural event and led to the Heaven Promised Land by Jesus. If we examine the histories of these 400 year periods, we can find many similarities; the model is repeated as a pattern of similarities with variations in cultures.
These paradigms become important now because several of them point to the year 2007 along with the Signs in the Sky discussed above. But, the World kingdom did not end in 2007, so were the signs wrong? It is first of all astounding that so many signs point to the same year, something beyond chance or coincidence.
As I ponder the problem, I think of the significance of the number seven in the Bible, wondering if 2007 might be the start of a last "week of years" like that last week of Danielís Seventy Weeks prophecy. The number seven is powerfully used throughout the Bible. A few examples are: The Feast of Unleavened Bread was ordered to last for seven days: Numbers 28. Of course, on the seventh day of creation, God rested. There were seven years of plenty in Egypt, then seven years of famine. There are seven Spirits of God around His throne. In Leviticus 25 we have: "And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years." The book of Revelation has many sevens, such as seven churches, seven seals, seven Spirits, and more. In Daniel 9 we have the seventy-weeks prophecy: "Seventy weeks have been determined upon thy people, and upon the holy city, for sin to be ended, and to seal up transgressions, and to blot out the iniquities, and to make atonement for iniquities, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal the vision and the prophet, and to anoint the Most Holy.
25 And thou shalt know and understand, that from the going forth of the command for the answer and for the building of Jerusalem until Christ the prince there shall be seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks; and then the time shall return, and the street shall be built, and the wall, and the times shall be exhausted.
26 And after the sixty-two weeks, the anointed one shall be destroyed, and there is no judgment in him: and he shall destroy the city and the sanctuary with the prince that is coming: they shall be cut off with a flood, and to the end of the war which is rapidly completed he shall appoint the city to desolations.
27 And one week shall establish the covenant with many: and in the midst of the week my sacrifice and drink-offering shall be taken away: and on the temple shall be the abomination of desolations; and at the end of time an end shall be put to the desolation.
You might notice that many of the sevens in the Bible indicate time periods whether days, weeks, or years. So, it is my thought that the Daniel prophecy model of seventy week of years might hint at a seven year period following the year 2007. That would make the end year to be 2014AD. Since the big event did not happen in 2007, then it seems likely that 2007 must be the start of a period of end-time breakdown. Besides the conjecture of a breakdown period of seven years, I must also consider the number "12" which is also used as an indicator of time periods such as the Zodiac Ages. Adding 12 to 2007 gives us a final date of 2019. If I am to guess at a date for the end of this World kingdom, I prefer Bible prophecies rather than that Mayan calendar which some say points to December 21, 2012.
Now, letís look at the Egypt paradigm. Our Old Testament states two different numbers of years for the Egyptian sojourn of Israel. In Genesis 15:13, God says they will be there in a land not their own for 400 years. In Exodus 12:41, it is stated that they were in Canaan and Egypt for 430 years. Here are the Egypt paradigms of 400 years and 430 years. St. Paul also mentions the number of years as 430.
4. THE 400 YR EGYPT PARADIGM
Genesis 15:13 "And it was said to Abram, Thou shalt surely know that thy seed shall be a sojourner in a land not their own, and they shall enslave them, and afflict them, and humble them four hundred years."
In Acts 7:6 the martyr, Stephen, mentions the 400 year sojourn. We should keep in mind that the Israel Family was not enslaved or oppressed until the latter years of their time in Egypt; the first couple centuries were prosperous and flourishing, like they were in America.
Of course, the Egypt sojourn of our people is well known. God ordered that their Liberation event be celebrated every year as a Feast of Unleavened Bread for seven days, a week which included a Passover meal.
2007AD minus 400 years is 1607AD.It was April 29, 1607 when Rev. Robert Hunt planted an eight foot oak cross on Virginia Beach and claimed this continent for Jesus Christ.
This was the first settlement of European Christians on the North American continent, although there had been some prior landing parties but no successful settlement. So, this event is equivalent to the arrival of Jacobís Family in Egypt, although Joseph had already been there for thirty years.
The ancient Egypt event had Godís Family spending 400 years in "World" (Egypt is always a symbol of World) before being liberated to a Promised Land by Joshua (his real Phoenician/Greek name was Iesus, NOT the Aramaic "Joshua" used by English translators).
You can read the account of the settling of the most recent Promised Land, America, athttp://divinepageant.com/AMERICA%20400%20YEARS.htm
Is it just coincidence that the year 2007, which is so significant in sky-signs, happens to be exactly 400 years after Rev. Robert Hunt planted a cross at Virginia Beach, claiming the new land for Jesus Christ, and ordered three days of prayer before going ashore? Then they went upstream to found the settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. This seems certainly to be another instance of the 400 year paradigm. And, now at the end of our America experience, which like in Egypt, has become terribly oppressive against Christians, we will soon be led into the final Promised Land by a "Iesus."
The land of "Virginia" was named after the beloved Virgin Queen Elizabeth I (Rex: 1558-1603); Jamestown was named after King James I (Rex: 1603-1625). The captain of the Susan Constant, which carried the men to Jamestown, was "Christopher" Newton. It was a "Christopher" Columbus who captained the first trip in 1492, reaching some Caribbean Islands but not America. It was a "Christopher" Jones who captained the Mayflower to Plymouth, Mass. in 1620, with pilgrims.
The name "Christopher" is derived from the Greek word kristos, which means anointed one, and the Greek word pherein, which means to bear or carry, (root word for ferry). The name, Christopher, means Christ-bearer. Could God make His hand any more obvious to us?
5. THE 430 YR CANAAN/EGYPT PARADIGM
It is interesting that the following quotation from Exodus should include the thirty years in Canaan prior to the move to Egypt, and further that St. Paul would use the 430 year number in his letter to the Galatians. Is there some significance to this number that it should be included in both the Old and New Testaments? Here are the pertinent texts:
Ex 12:40 "And the sojourning of the children of Israel, while they sojourned in the land of Egypt and the land of Chanaan, [was] four hundred and thirty years. 41 And it came to pass after the four hundred and thirty years, all the forces [family] of the Lord came forth out of the land of Egypt by night."
St. Paul also accounts the Egypt sojourn as 430 years in Gal 3:17 "And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ, that it should make the promise of no effect." (NKJV)
2007AD minus 430 years is 1577AD
It was in 1577, that Sir Francis Drake landed his ship, the Golden Hind, on a beach north of San Francisco, and claimed this continent for Jesus Christ. This was the first claiming of the continent for Christ; important enough to correlate with Bible clues! Is it coincidence that Drakeís claim was made exactly 430 years prior to the 2007 date? Can we correlate Drakeís arrival in California with Josephís arrival in Egypt? Does the Bible mention this obscure number of years in order point us to another paradigm event which is meaningful to the end time date of 2007?
FINALLY, I admit that I do NOT understand why the year 2007 seems to be spotlighted by God's signs in the sky and by the Bible paradigms. Perhaps my speculations will prompt someone else to an insight into an answer. If so, I'm sure interested in hearing it. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is my conviction that the end-time crash is very near, along with the Armageddon battle which will devastate much of the world, including America. God has given us so much information which points to the end of this World kingdom, along with warnings of its seriousness to each of us. Jesus came to show us the Way and commands us to FOLLOW HIM. It is because each of us really feels a serious concern that we are attracted to such signs as are included in the above article. It is a most serious matter that Jesus warns us, that anyone who desires to save his life will lose it. We are at that point in our lives, right now, that each person must confront the reality of God's warnings and make the choice whether to follow Him or not.
This article posits that an end-time date might be calculated if we consider God's signs in the sky, or in the Bible, or other relevant data, but a final caveat is in order here. Whatever the proper calculations tell us, whether 2014 or 2019 or something other, we are also warned that God will shorten the time for the sake of the Elect. How much time do we have to prove how serious we are about following Him? Good luck with that one!
