The Conception of Virgo

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;” and it was so. Gen. 1:14-15

The Conception of Virgo
The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
— Psalm 19:1-4

The celestial bodies are a divine ordinance that work like a symbolic movie to show us what is happening in God's redemptive story.

Thanks to modern software and astronomy programs like Stellarium, we are able to witness prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes. This is how the sign of Revelation 12:1-2 came to be is the unprecedented alignment on September 23, 2017 of stars, planets, the moon and the constellations of Virgo and Leo that reveal more of God's plan. They are a marker in the fabric of time and place. You are here, our Creator tells us. This is what is happening. This is what's to come. We get to listen. We get to watch. We get to witness the unfolding of something so life-changing...literally...and make choices with our hearts and days that matter. Greatly.

Something that has been so heavy on me, heavy in a good way, is the immense weight of all that is coming to pass these days. And how we, those of us who exist right now, are dwelling in a time longed for by so many in ages past. For months my spirit has carried this...

Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into. 1 Peter 1:10-12

What an immense blessing to be born in this time, and what a staggering responsibility!

As if the other heavenly signs weren't enough, a dear friend shared a new-to-us discovery with me today...the Conception of Virgo. Please watch with an open mind because here is one more astonishing example of the precision of these alignments and the Father's great love...

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure...’ Is. 46:10

As with most things, there is a lot of sensationalism around eschatology and celestial alignments. YouTube and the world wide web are a chaotic cocktail of conspiracy theories and deception. Please use discernment as you research these things and remember that just because something seems far-fetched, it doesn't mean it is...just as something that seems plausible doesn't make it so, either.

I try to share resources that do not facilitate sensationalism or click-bait or fringe conspiracies, but that does not mean I always endorse everything they teach or share. Please immerse yourself in Scripture and prayer and seek the Holy Spirit to guide you and show you what is true.
