Pilate & Sejanus

23 Sept. 2017


This isn’t the most simple topic to explain. Before I can start making my point a lot of groundwork has to be done. . And that’s what I’ll start with. A list of facts.

Rev 12:1 And a great sign was seen in heaven. A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars upon her head.

Rev 12:2 And having in her womb, she cried out, suffering birth pains, and suffering to give birth.

Rev 12:3 And another sign was seen in heaven. And behold, a great fiery red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads.

Rev 12:4 And his tail drags the third part of the stars of the sky, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was going to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.

Rev 12:5 And she gave birth to a son, a male who was going to tend all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was taken up to God and to his throne.

Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place there prepared by God, so that they may nourish her there a thousand two hundred sixty days.

So we are looking for something that satisfies all there criteria:

The criteria range from not rare, to very rare. All combined they are extremely rare.

In ancient times, a planet was called a star. Stars are fixed in a constellation. Planets tend to move through those constellations. That’s why they were called ‘wandering stars’.

It are the wandering stars that are the timing of the event.

For example Jupiter spends about 10% of each 12 years in Virgo. And even less in her womb area. That simple fact means the configuration mentioned in Rev 12:1-6 can only happen once in every 12 years.

The moon passes through Virgo every year, but far less often under her feet. And when it does, Jupiter is usually isn’t in Virgo.

Pagan astrology

The Bible clearly forbids astrology. But the Bible also states the stars, sun and moon are for signs and seasons. Job talked with God about constellations.

I think it’s safe to say good or bad depends on what it’s used for. If stars are for example used to find the the best day to buy a lottery ticket that’s bad. But if the same stars for example are used to figure out the birth of Christ or the church then that’s good use.

(Wandering) stars


There are 3 constellations that represent a woman: Cassipeia, Andromeda and Virgo. Virgo is the only one that’s part of the Zodiac, has a dragon nearby and a moon passing by.

Clothing the woman

When the sun is in Virgo it’s clothing her.

It can’t mean the sun engulfs Virgo because (seen from earth,) Virgo is much bigger than the sun.


Thayer Definition:

1) the sun

2) the rays of the sun

3) the light of day

A you see the Greek word for sun has several meanings. That can mean the the event takes place during daylight or when the rays of the sun cover/clothe Virgo.


1Pet 2:24 Who his own self bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live to righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed.

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and immediately came there out blood and water.

The big red spot represents the speared body of Jesus, and the the stripes represent… the stripes.

Jupiter returns every twelve years in Virgo.

A flawed but useful calculation

Let’s assume Jupiter is what Virgo is pregnant with. Then the first step is to determine where the womb of Virgo is. I used retrograde points A & B for that.

Simply because a child stays within the boundaries of the womb; and the retrograde points can be seen as the extremes of the womb because Jupiter bounces between them.

Point A: 10 November 2016. (Retrograde point = womb)

Point B: 6 February 2017.  (Retrograde point = womb)

Point A: 9 June 2017.  (Retrograde point = womb)

Point B: 6 September 2017.  (Retrograde point = womb)

Point C: 10 September 2017. (End birth canal)

Time spend in the womb 300 days.

42 weeks, 294 days, is sometimes called a long pregnancy. 42 weeks is also half of the Tribulation.

All nice things but the fact remains there is an inaccuracy of 6 days.

If we add the 4 days in the birth canal the inaccuracy becomes 10 days. Those 4 days are simply the time it takes Jupiter to move from B-the womb to C just outside the womb.

Besides that inaccuracy it should be said that Jupiter very rarely retrogrades completely within the body of Virgo.

 + 15 NMDs = 309

The crown

The main stars in constellation Leo add up to 9. The 3 extra stars that make 12 are Venus, Mars and Mercury.

The 9 stars are fixed and always in Leo, but the other 3 aren’t.

They all return quite frequently but rarely they are all in Leo.

The odds

Not a single mentioned star, planet, sun or moon is anything special being in Virgo or Leo. It happened every 1-12 years since creation. What’s far more rare is that they are all in place at the same time. And even if they are Jupiter hardly ever retrogrades in Virgo’s womb.

What we have so far

A short recap of the things matching the Revelation verses.

The woman named Virgo has her child named Jupiter, the king star, in her womb for about 9 months.

On 23 September, 2017, she is standing on the moon, while the rays of the sun radiate her.

Dual meaning

The woman and the child are Mary and Jesus

The woman and the child are Israel and the church.

The second one may need further explanation because it may be assumed Jesus is part of that one too. But Jesus doesn’t give birth. And if He did, would He marry with is own child? Israel is the oldest of God’s people. The gentile church originates from Israel. It’s founded, given birth, by the Apostles with power from above. The bride has deep roots in Israel.

Gen 37:9 Then he had another dream, and gave his brothers an account of it, saying, I have had another dream: the sun and the moon and eleven stars gave honour to me.

The twelfth star in Joseph himself. 12 stars, 12 tribes, Israel. There was nothing Jewish about the Gentile nations when they were born into Christianity.

But jupiter is called the king planet, not the queen planet. So how can it be the church, the bride of Christ*.

The church is the body of the man called Jesus Christ. A male with a male body.

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of two one new man, so making peace;

*=Where in Scripture is the church called Christ’s bride? I think nowhere.

If the woman is Israel both Jesus and church are born from Israel. Jesus the male head of church has a male body called church.


Not much to say about that. It’s easily spotted on the picture below. It does single out Virgo, as the other 2 ‘female’ constellations have no dragon nearby.
