From Eliyahu

Hello Friends,

I'm releasing this Tsiyon News a little early due to the time-sensitive information herein.

If you've been in touch with the news at all lately I probably don't have to tell you that we have arrived at a time of significant transition. As two big examples, just since our last Newsletter the Supreme Court of the US declared the definition of marriage changed from what it has been for the past 6000 years and the Vatican signed a treaty for the first time with the so-called "State of Palestine." Other momentous changes on the world scene are in the pipeline to soon stun the world.

Meanwhile, here at Tsiyon we took a break from continuing the Balaam story to bring you our program on the Tetrad Blood Moons, right on cue to be playing during this week of earth-shaking change. This Sabbath we conclude the Balaam story with the Affair of Peor, which describes an evil plot that Balaam cooked up with the elite leaders of Israel's enemies to lead Yah's people into sexual immorality and idolatry, to destroy them. How timely is that story?

But there is another amazing and timely event, while we are still on the Balaam story in our living Midrash. You may recall in our last Midrash on Balaam (#112) we considered the prophecy through Balaam regarding the  "Star out of Jacob." If you haven't heard that program, it is playing on Tsiyon Road over the next couple days along with our latest program. Here is the passage about the star:

Numbers 24:17 I see him, but not now. I see him, but not near.

A star will come out of Jacob. A scepter will rise out of Israel,

and shall strike through the corners of Moab,

and break down all the sons of Sheth.

18 Edom shall be a possession.

Seir, his enemies, shall be a possession, while Israel does valiantly.

19 Out of Jacob shall one have dominion, and shall destroy the remnant [of Edom] from The City.”

In that message I explained that Messiah's birth was heralded by a literal "Star out of Jacob."  Matthew 2 tells us of the wisemen from the east who came to the court of Herod in Judea and said; “Where is he who is born King of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east, and have come to worship him.”

MP3 Files and Charts We taught on this in the past, and we have a specal program with chronology charts that explain the timing of Messiah's birth. That information explains how the star the wisemen saw was actually a conjunction of Jupiter and Venus, aligned so close as to appear as one great star, in conjunction with the star Regulus, all occurring in the constellation of Leo the lion (the sign of Judah).  (Matt 2:2)

I can't explain all of this here, but you can listen to what we've taught in the past on this, and I will also be releasing more on this in the near future.

To summarize though, this extremely rare conjunction tells the story of Messiah's birth in the signs of the Mazzaroth, and was actually understood by the wisemen as the sign of Messiah's birth, as per the prophecy of Balaam. [Gen 1:14, Job 38:32]

Using modern computer software, it is possible to track that conjunction back to the exact date when it occurred. Here is what that looked like from Jerusalem:

Messiah star - 2 BC

See how Jupiter and Venus are so close as to make one very bright star, in conjunction with Regulus in the constellation of Leo the Lion? Did you note the date of that conjunction: June 17, 2 BC? Did you notice that on that same Roman date of June 17 (2015 AD) we were airing our latest Midrash containing Balaam's prophecy of this very event? Does YHWH have the Midrash moving in step with Him or what?

Wait, there is more, as we continue with the story of Balaam in our Midrash. Notice the news article below entitled "Star Of Bethlehem — Closest Highly Visible Conjunction Of Venus & Jupiter In 2000 Years On June 30, 2015." That's right. Essentially the same conjunction that led the wisemen to Messiah is happening again, after 2000 years. It is in progress and is at its brightest June 30 and July 1, 2015. June 30 is the closest conjunction but July 1 it may appear bigger and brighter. Here is a software image of that conjunction:

Messiah Star - 2015

After the close conjunction making them look like one bright star, of June 30/July 1, Jupiter and Venus will start to move away from each other. 

This time this very special sky sign that reportedly hasn't been seen in 2000 years can't be seen in Israel. It is located over America instead. If you live in the right location, and have good atmospherics, you can view the show looking west above the horizon shortly after sunset.

Wait, there is still more. Let me tell you about Mike, who has been here with the Tsiyon Team since last fall. He is an amateur astronomer and when he moved here, he brought his honkin huge telescope, and awesome astronomy software, with him. The timing of YHWH is a marvel, is it not?  Using his software, Mike provided the pictures for you that I have marked up for this newsletter. Last night he set up his telescope here in Greater Austin so that we could view and verify this conjunction in the making. Yes, its there, we all saw it. Except for the moon, it is the brightest thing in the sky - so bright you might mistake it for a light on a tower, or something like that. Of course, the wisemen had no such thing in the sky to mistake the Messiah star for. Anyway,  I asked Mike if we could continue to track this conjunction with his telescope each night, and he agreed. If the atmosphere cooperates, he will be taking pictures through his telescope to share with you.

The dance of these heavenly bodies in Leo, leading up to this close conjunction, began just before the stunning news week we've just come through, and will continue for another week or more thereafter. Many of us are interested in possible anticipated events within this time-frame, and we will be watching to see what may happen and what correlation there may be with this constellation.

So what does this all mean? Right now we are gathering the data, and listening to YHWH. I will have a lot more to say at the end of this process. For now I'll say this: the timing of this is no accident after 2000 years, in the midst of the Blood Moons of Passover and Succot. Of course, the Evangelicals will all see this as a sign of an impending "rapture of the Church." It doesn't mean that. This is not about "the Church" - it is about Judah and Israel and, I believe, heralds positive changes for Israel that will open up the way for the scattered remnant to return to the Land.

Don't miss this week's Midrash.

Blessings and Shalom,

Eliyahu ben David


Star Of Bethlehem — Closest Highly Visible Conjunction Of Venus & Jupiter In 2000 Years On June 30, 2015

Source: Planetsave, June 27th, 2015

After an absence of roughly 2000 years the Star of Bethlehem may soon be making a return to our night skies on June 30, 2015 — to be more specific Venus and Jupiter will be making their tightest highly visible conjunction in nearly two millennia.

The reference to the Star of Bethlehem is with regard to the fact that there was a very similar ultratight conjunction between the two — and close by the star Regulus (as this one will be), and high up in the sky (as this will be as well) — in 3-2 BC. Some astronomers have in the past speculated that this earlier conjunction is what the “Star of Bethlehem” referred to.

Messiah star conjunction 2 BC

At the very least this conjunction will make for a very impressive sight in the night’s sky. The two bright planets have already begun moving closer and closer together in the last evening sky over the past month, this convergence will continue until the evening of June 30, 2015. Those interested should look in the western portion of the evening sky to see the conjunction. Roughly an hour or so after sunset is probably a good time — but obviously there’s some flexibility there.

Relatively close to this conjunction will be one of the brightest stars in the constellation of the Lion, the star Regulus. As mentioned above, the ultratight Jupiter-Venus conjunction back around 3-2 BC was also located near this very bright star.

While the tightest conjunction will be on the night/evening of June 30, there’ll be a week or so of impressive sights in the days before and after the conjunction.

On the night of June 30th the two planets will so close enough together that they’ll appear to a very bright “double star” — with the outstretched tip of a pinky finger reportedly being enough to cover both up.

Worth noting is that while the two planets vary considerably in size, they’ll appear roughly the same size in the night’s sky owing to Venus being considerably closer than Jupiter. For those wondering, Venus is the brighter one that moves around more (as it follows the Sun around on its path through the sky).



ISIS threatens Jerusalem Christians for the first time

Reprint: DEBKAfile June 28, 2015

A communiqué from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria warned Christians to leave Jerusalem, starting with the Palestinian neighborhoods of Shuafat and Beit Hanina, threatening to “clean” all Islamic neighborhoods where they live during the month of Ramadan. Leaflets delivered at the homes of Christian residents give them a month to leave. ISIS will then move on to the Old City and Church of the Sepulchre to “cleanse” those who “betrayed the Omarite covenant.” It is signed by the ISIS Emirate of Beit Al Maqdis – the name of the Islamist terrorist group of Sinai which has joined ISIS.

Our new Tsiyon Truth Point Video: Why the Christian Church in America Cannot Survive Same-Sex Marriage

This new video documents the profound effect that same-sex marriage is having on the Christian Church system in America. We predict that the American Church system will completely collapse under the weight of the full assault that same-sex marriage is bringing in. This is huge.
