Rapture Bible Prophecy Forum

(Rapture is a Vatican/Jesuit Lie )
The "Resurrection" has been erroneously labeled The "Rapture". 



While Yahusha/JESUS was alive, He prayed to His Father: "I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  John 17:15 (KJV)

Yahusha/JESUS gave signs of what must happen before His Return:  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:"  Matt. 24:29 (KJV)

The Transit of Venus
A Picture of a ‘Rapture’ –a Snatching Away
Associated with Cosmic Symbolism & Biblical Parallels in 2012

By Luis B. Vega

'The Eternal God is they Refuge, and underneath are the everlasting Arms; and He shall thrust out the Enemy from before thee; and shall say Destroy them.' –Deut 33:27

The purpose of this timeline/chart (See link above) is to highlight several key & unique properties of the Transit of Venus. The Transits of Venus will be examined in a Judeo-Christian context associated with Biblical symbolism & parallels of the Rapture. The 8th Transit of Venus to occur with the Sun, since recordings have been taken, is scheduled to take place on June 5-6th, 2012. To some Christian communities, this rare occurrence can be attributed to a ‘Picture of a Rapture’ or a snatching-away. If there was ever a ‘Picture of the Rapture of Church’ in the ‘Heavenlies’ or cosmos, the Transit of Venus phenomena would be it. The imagery is startling.

This study is no way insinuating that this June 5-6, 2012 Transit of Venus will be coinciding with the actual anticipated Rapture as defined in 1 Thess 4:17, but perhaps. There have been others Venus Transits before. In the past 380 years plus, since recorded astronomical dates has been taken down, there have been 7 prior Transits of Venus but only 1 has occurred within the Taurus Constellation as it will occur also in 2012. This 8th Transit of Venus may yet be just another insignificant phenomena & peculiarity but have all these Transits been a sort of countdown to the 8th? Is the 8th anymore significant because it is occurring in 2012? The number ‘8’ has resurrection meaning to it in a Biblical sense. Have these specific Transits of Venus indeed been a kind of dress rehearsal or a foreshadowing of the ‘Real Rapture’ event to come? FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. NO PREDICTIONS ARE MADE.

The first Venus Transit in our new millennium already happened in Jun 8, 2004, its ‘pair’ is thus to happen on June 5-6, 2012. Because the Venus Transit does happen in 2012, the year 2012 is considered to be a ‘Passage Year’ in many religious & non-religious circles. What better imagery for that of the Body of Christian Believers to ‘Passage Out’ of this present evil age; caught up & out –to be removed from the Wrath of the Lamb to come upon an unrepentant & rebellious world. This Rapture imagery, as insinuated by both the Old & New Testaments, speaks of a course of events to take place, primarily Sudden Destruction & an Escape. As Venus makes its "planetary retrograde loop" spanning the constellations of Taurus-Auriga-Orion, there are several unique celestial attributes that will be highlighted during this time period.

In part, some prominent celestial occurrences will be the:

1) Conjunction of Venus with the Pleiades on Apr 2, 2012

2) Alignment with Earth-Venus-Pleiades on Apr 2, 2012

3) Retrograde ‘Loop’ from Pleiades to ORI64 spanning Taurus-Auriga-Orion

4) Partial Blood Moon of Jun 3 immediately preceding the Transit

5) Transit of Venus with the Sun on Jun 5-6th
6) Conjunction of Mercury-Venus-Sun-Jupiter on Jul 1, 2012

These illustrations & chart attempt to explain the general principles, theories, & objects constituting the events pre & post Transit of Venus. The constellation interpretations are primarily based on the Astronomical work done by E.W. Bullinger. This is not astrology. As some have well put it, ‘Astrology is the "interpretation" of assumed influence the stars and planets exert on human destiny. This is a false belief. The stars should awaken wonder at Gods power, wisdom, and infinitude. We should use stars to keep track of time and place and to remind us of God’s faithful covenant-keeping nature. All the while we acknowledge the Creator of the Heavens. Our wisdom comes from God not the stars. James1:5. The Word of God, the Bible is our guide through life. Psalm119.’

The Retrograde
From Apr 2 to Aug 8 2012, Venus begins its retrograde or ‘Loop’ pattern through the constellation Taurus. Retrograde means ‘going back’. In this retrograde effect, from Earth’s perspective, Venus appears to travel backwards to a degree before moving forward again. This ‘Loop’ has some peculiar junctions to note. On Apr 2, 2012 Venus conjuncts with the Pleiades. Venus then traverses onward & on Apr 16-17, 2012 Venus will be mid-way between the Pleiades & the star El Nath–the pierced Foot of Auriga the Shepherd. On May 7, 2012 Venus conjoined at the Star, El Nath, the Wounded Shepherd & Al Hecka (the horn of the Bull). Venus then ‘loops’ backwards down the Horns of Taurus for the ‘Transit’ on the 5-6th of Jun, 2012 with our Sun. Venus then conjoined Kursa of Eridanus when Venus crosses the Ecliptic. The Retrograde Loop is completed around the 4th of Jul in the Hyades region of Taurus, which is a stellar asterism that lies just before Aldebaran -the Eye of the Bull. On Jul 17 2012, Venus leaves Taurus & heads for the Star, ORI64 -the Right Arm of Orion by Aug 8, 2012.

The Mechanics of A Transit
A ‘Transit’ is another descriptive word for an ‘occultation’. Because of Earth’s ‘order’ or distance from our Sun, only Mercury & Venus can have ‘transit’s with the Sun as it would occur between the Earth & the Sun. These Transits are not ‘Eclipses’ as some would think they would be. Planet Venus & the Sun interact or conjunct all the time in a somewhat regular basis. Most often the case, they pass each other on above or below our Sun’s meridian. What is extraordinary about the Jun 5-6, 2012 Transit is that Venus will cross the Sun’s ‘face’ in reference to our Earth. The Transit will last close to 6 hours. The actual ‘Transit’ occurs about 3 hours before & after it clears the Sun. According to research, the only recorded times that the Transit of Venus has occurred has been the following years 1631 & 1639), (1761 & 1769), (1874 & 1882), & 2004. It is not to say that others could have happened but they can’t be scientifically verified.

Given the phenomena that planetary and/or cosmic body alignments do affect the forces between celestial bodies, one can possibly anticipate a ‘force’ of some kind to occur during this coming Transit. As Venus will be between Earth & the Sun, it will produce an electromagnetic or gravitational force upon the Earth -as it did in 2004. As the Sun was in particular alignment with Venus & the Earth-Moon then, the Sun’s rays of energy emanated produced a sort of ‘tug’ on the Earth. This fact has been substantiated by new discoveries of ‘corridor lines’ that do make up a sort of ‘grid’ in the cosmos. This grid is where the planets are ‘resting’ upon & thus can be distorted by light, time & celestial alignments. Einstein spoke of this in his Theory of Relativity.

To the esoteric, Venus has both male & female principles. Venus is the Morning Star or the Evening Star - The Phoenix depending on its position in the Heavens. Venus is also the nocturnal representation of the hidden Sun-god Osiris (Orion). Other like the Masons use the name Blazing Star to symbolize Venus as lucifer himself the Illuminated One. Thus lucifer is Venus the ‘goddess’ and thus makes lucifer the first transvestite ever. The occult has usurped the real meaning attributed to the True Morning Star, Jesus Christ. Some well known names since ancient times have been Ishtar, Isis, Inanna, Diana etc. To the occult, Venus is lucifer & an evil sign of Witchcraft with the inverted Pentagram symbol. The star’s depicting of its 2 horns pointing up like a Bull (Taurus) is an affront to Heaven & God Himself.

According the very words of a post, risen & glorified Jesus Christ from the Book of Revelation 22, Jesus Christ Himself said He IS, the Bright & Morning Star –Venus not lucifer. Behind this façade is the usurper ‘light bearer’ fallen angel lucifer. Lucifer according to Scripture seeks to deface God’s true creation & cosmic association, as reflected in the heavens/cosmos. This fallen angel with alliance from humanity attempts to reverse the order & meaning of God’s creation & its symbols. This has been the theme as displayed in the Starts and ‘acted out’ in Scripture. For example in the Book of Esther, Queen Esther represents Venus, Haman represents Mercury.

The Venus Geometric Patterns
Venus makes unique geometric configurations as it orbits the Sun. All the Planets for that matter have orbital patterns & have accompanied frequencies based on its mass & size also. For Venus, 1 unique & recognizable pattern that occurs at the end of its 8 year cycle is a ‘rose’ geometric pattern. Another pattern that is also produced at the end of the 4 year cycle is a 5-pointed pentagram or ‘Star’ geometric pattern. The entire obit of Venus around the Sun is referred to as an 8-year ‘pentagonal cycle’. This cycle makes exactly 13 revolutions during this 8-years pentagram cycle. To the occult, 13 is significant & these have become perverted symbols for the Rosicrucian Cross & the satanic pentagram talisman utilized by witches. Sorcerers use these symbols of lucifer extensively in ceremonial magic to evoke the help of demons.

The 8-year cycle produces what many have named a ‘Bellerose’ Flower pattern. How it is associated with a ‘cross’ is that when Venus lies directly in front of the Sun and in line with Earth, it coincides with the Solstice & Eclipse intersections or ‘Celestial Cross’. This is where you have the Rosicrucian connection of the ‘Rose within a Cross’. It is a reverse of the Lutheran ‘Cross in the Rose’. This is basically alluding to the worship & adoration of Venus or its implied representation of lucifer again, not the cross of Christ nor the ‘Rose of Sharon’ as the Jewish Messiah is often referred to as.

The 4-year trajectory produces the ancient symbol of Venus which is the 5-poinoted Pentagram Star. A pentagon is a regular, five-sided polygon, the pentacle is the five-pointed star & the pentagram is the five-pointed star inscribed in a circle. There are 5 synodic cycles between the 2 transits to be completed in 2012. In addition, the star incorporates the Golden Ratio of Φ. Thus the ‘star’ pattern can be associated with a symbol of the infinite or a 9 backwards. In ancient pagan numerology, the number 9 is the number of the circle, which was a symbol of infinity or immortality. This is because the number 5 & its geometric configuration repeats & reproduces its exact image endlessly by way of the Golden Ratio & looks like a ‘9’ when constructed.

There is a 3rd association with a pentagram 5-pointed star. This pattern deals with the human form. The five points of the star represent the head, arms, and legs of the human body. This configuration is called ‘Microcosmic Man’. Some believe that the Cosmos is actually formed like a body. Venus thus depicts a microcosm of the universe by the human outstretched arms and legs fits perfectly in a circle and is proportionately outlined by the pentagram. The true form is in Christ Jesus & his hypostatic nature. It is in Jesus Christ’s human body prepared -that in Him, dwells the fullness of the Godhead, that which even Heaven cannot contain Him. In reality, Jesus Christ’s body can be attributed to be a microcosm of the whole creation in bodily form.

Biblical Symbology
The Transit of Venus is exactly what has been foretold will happen to the Body of the Redeemed all throughout Judeo-Christian Scripture. It is a pattern of impending wrath & judgment but not before the LORD removes His remnant in a variety of means. We see this in Noah, Rehab in Jericho, Sodom, & just before the End of Days & Christ’s 2nd Coming. Thus if Venus is to traverse through a specific course of constellations –beginning at the Pleiades then to the Shepherd, then to the Sun conjunction in the horns of Taurus -to the Hand of Orion, then these constellations are highly significant. This ‘picture’ can possibly bring out some clues as to the nature of the True anticipated Rapture of the Body of Christ. Is it a coincidence that this 8th Transit happens to be on 2012 will all the other accompanying major celestial signs? Is it a coincidence that the number 8 signifies a renewal & resurrection? Perhaps of the Saints?

The Biblical depictions of the Rapture sequence scenario is understood & is very simple; as to the timing, that is for another study. It is of Christ’s promise in John 14 to return for His own before the Wrath as foretold in Rev 4. So what do we have in the stars during this Transit of Venus? We see Christ as Venus, the Groom coming for His 7 Churches as Venus conjuncts with the Pleiades. We see Venus in Auriga, the Wounded Shepherd. Jesus, the Great Shepherd of the Flock is taking His 2 sheep fold & protecting them from the fierce judgment of God or Taurus to come. We see Venus then magically conjoins with the Sun in the midst of the Horns of Taurus. We see Venus then safely end up in the strong Right Hand as the ‘Redeemer’ (Orion). In Revelation 1, Christ, the True Orion holds the 7 stars in His hand representing the 7 Churches. You have the Pleiades in His hand with a Sword proceeding from His mouth as will Orion with Venus on Aug 8, 2012.

The following is a brief overview in paraphrase format of the work done be E. W. Bullinger. This will highlight the 3 main constellations that Venus will be associated with during the Venus Transit & ‘Loop’ that I believe is a rehearsal of the Rapture of the Redeemed. This ‘rehearsal’ will not take place for another 100 year from 2012.

TAURUS: Christ, The Coming Judge 2 Timothy 4:1
This constellation shows us about the Coming Judge & His Wrath. God’s Wrath, when it comes, will come quickly & be fierce. We have the prophecy of Christ as the Coming Judge, & Ruler. Christ has been given all authority & power on Earth & in Heaven according to Matthew 16. Taurus has 3 main significant Stars. These tell of a prophetic intimation that this coming Christ would first be slain as a sacrifice –The Judge slain for His Congregation.

Al Debaran -This is the brightest star, a in the bull's eye. It means the ‘Judge’.
El Nath -This star means ‘wounded’ or ‘slain’
Pleiades -A cluster of 7 stars known as ’The Congregation’ of the Judge.

ORION: Christ, The Coming Redeemer Hebrews 13:20-21
This picture is one of a majestic Royal Prince that has triumphed over His enemy. Its star configuration means, ’This is He who Triumphs.’ In Hebrew, Orion or Oarion means the ’Light’ or as the ’Light from Heaven’ (Light Bearer). Orion depicts a Heavenly Warrior with a sword & left foot upon the Enemy head, satan. His right foot is also pierced like Ophiuchus’ by the Serpent. This too echoes Genesis 3:15 & the insinuating conflict between the ‘Seed’ of the Woman & the ‘Seed’ of the Serpent. At the Cross, Jesus crushed lucifer’s attempt to destroy the Messiah despite lucifer’s strike at the Jesus Christ’s heel. Having secured the victory at the Cross, Christ Jesus has resurrected, conquered sin & death. His followers awaits His 2nd literal return to once for all ‘destroy satan with the brightness of His Coming.’ Not before He comes as a ‘thief in the night’ to protect this lambs from the ‘wrath’ to come & snatch the Redeemed to His Hand. There are 3 main stars that compose the main meaning of this constellation that has been noted since the Book of Job (9:9). Christ will come to crush & destroy His Enemy.

Betelgeuz -The coming of the Branch
Rigel -The foot that crushes
Bellatrix -Quickly coming, or swiftly destroying

AURIGA: Christ, The Wounded Shepherd Romans 3:24
Based on the word association & meaning derived from the 66 stars that make up this constellation. The bright star in his right foot is called El Nath which means wounded or slain. The meaning is one of ‘Safety for the Redeemed in the Day of Wrath.’ it is an image of a Shepherd pierced at His heel protecting lambs from the ‘Coming Judge’ Taurus. He is protecting a she-goat cleaning to His neck & grasping fairly new-born lambs to His arms toward that He is carrying on his bosom. Christ so too has combined the 2 sheep-folds of Israel and the Gentile Redeemed from the Wrath of the Father’s Judgment due to His work on the Cross. This work was a ‘piercing’ of His ‘heel’ as in Gen 3:15 or flesh to shed priceless blood for the remission of humanity’s sin.

From Pentecost plus 40 days is May 26, 2012 + 40 = July 4, 2012 (anniversary of the 243rd year countdown since 1776)

Prior Transit Patterns
The 7 prior Venus Transits happened in the following pair of year, 8 years apart. Only the ones in the 1761-69 span of time is exactly like the pair that occurred in 2004 & to occur in June of 2012. There is one difference in the 2012 Transit, it will be in the Spring instead of all the prior Winter ones! Perhaps a Rapture to be in the Spring?! Each Transit Pair from end to the beginning of the next pair is 234 years apart.

1631 Dec –in Ophiuchus
1639 Dec –in Ophiuchus

(234 years)

1761 Dec –in Taurus**
1769 Dec –in Taurus**

(234 years)

1874 Dec –in Ophiuchus
1882 Dec –in Ophiuchus

(234 years)

2004 Jun –in Taurus**
2012 Jun –in Taurus**

Transit Pyramid Math
There are some unique number associations with Venus & the Earth. The years between Venus passages across the face of the Sun, constitute 243 years between a pair of passages. In other words, the Earth will have revolved 243 times around the Sun. It so happens that during this same time, Venus will has revolved on its own axis 365 times. This as it is commonly known is our approximate length of time in days that the Earth revolves around our Sun.

If you take the center mid-point year of each 4-year Transit you come up with the 243 coefficient & the number 11.

1765 = mid point (11 years to 1776)

1769 – 2004 = 234 Years Apart

2008 = mid point (11 years to 2019)
1765 – 2008 = 243 Years Apart

As an aside note, these Venus Transits may yet hold a key not only to the possible start of Daniel’s 9 Last week of 7, but to the establishment of the USA as a nation; as being far more than a particular Declaration of Independence in 1776. There have also been some relevant studies on how 1776 in itself is a ‘count-up’ year. Here is one possibility in that Daniel’s 1260+1290 day counts or (7 Years approximately) can be factored out:

1776 -2012 = 236 Years
+ 7 Years
= 243 years total
= 2013

This also happens to be the number in years configured from the US Reverse Seal of the Illuminati Truncated All-Seeing Eye Pyramid. From the base at 1776 + 236 years = 2012. Then from 2013 + 7 years (6.6 in Hebrew 360 days) will complete the apex of the Pyramid in around 2019. Perhaps the USA, often referred to as the New Atlantis was designed to exist for only 1 Venus 243 year intercession of time allotted. Perhaps.

Zechariah 12:3,9:
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
