Set in Place Like Stars ~ pt 1
given what is unfolding at a rapid pace since the recent world leader summits, there is no guarantee how long I will be able to continue sending out emails. It looks like we are going to have a tumultuous December. So, I am sending you this study the Holy Spirit took me on and you can peruse it at your leisure.
Ursa Minor (Little Bear) depicts the manchild company, anchored to the North Star and rotating around the throne of God.
Psalm 19 says the following in the Passion Translation: Psa 19:1 For the Pure and Shining One. A poem of praise by King David, his loving servant. God’s splendor is a tale that is told; his testament is written in the stars. Space itself speaks his story every day through the marvels of the heavens. His truth is on tour in the starry vault of the sky, showing his skill in creation’s craftsmanship. Psa 19:2 Each day gushes out its message to the next, night with night whispering its knowledge to all. Psa 19:3 Without a sound, without a word, without a voice being heard, Psa 19:4 Yet all the world can see its story. Everywhere its gospel is clearly read so all may know. This study is a discovery of what the stars above Jerusalem are saying during the Early Barley Ripeness celebration of Hanukah in November, and also the Orthodox Hanukah in December. ** For those who are new to my blog and do not understand the early celebration of the feasts, please go back to the message called Keeping in Step and Following the Cloud . This explains the early ripening of the Barley this year, 2022. Remember, God controls the seasons and the growth of crops and when the cloud moves, for our own safety, we must pull up stakes and follow. May His faithful remnant be led by His Spirit into all truth. Selah
Saints, don’t faint when you see the length of this PDF. It contains many pictures! Just as I did at the beginning of 5783,
the Spirit directed me to compare the skies on the early celebration of Hanukah with the Orthodox dates for this feast.
Remember Ursa Minor depicts the manchild company. So, let’s look at the positioning of ursa minor at 3 different times
on this first day of Early Barley Ripeness Hanukah:
1. Beginning of evening watch, 6pm 20th November 2022 2. Midnight (end of second watch of night on 1st day of early Hanukah)
3. At the end of the morning watch, as the sun rises on 21st Nov, the first day of early Hanukah
Set in Place as Stars
Wow, as the feast begins, the little bear looksupside down and being loomed over by the dragon! BUT things will change!
2. at MIDNIGHT of 1st day Early Barley Ripeness Hannukah 5783, Ursa minor is now facing East, POSITIONED for outpouring judgement on the belly of the dragon who is still in process of rising to full visibility. (At midnight the cry goes out, “BEHOLD HE COMES” Matt 25:6) i.e. the constellations above are showing commencement of manchild ministry, as they are positioned to release a corporate sound, powered by the Spirit of Elijah (in the pattern of John the Baptist).
(Remember on the last day of this early Hanukah celebration, 28th Nov 2022, I released the word speaking directly to the enemies of the Lord about His coming judgement)
3. AT DAWN ON 1ST DAY EARLY BARLEY HANNUKAH, Polaris, Kochab and Arcturus are in ALIGNMENT as the sun rises over ‘Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great king’
*Remember Kochab means ‘waiting for Him Who comes’. Arcturus means ‘He comes’. Alignment shows oneness, seeing eye to eye, being in full agreement with the mind and purposes of Him Who comes. THIS DEPICTS THOSE WHO ARE FULLY PREPARED, rightly positioned, FULLY ALIGNED WITH true North and Him Who comes Notice the dragon is now fully visible but positioned BELOW the manchild company!!
I sought the Lord as to what this early positioning of the constellation depicting the manchild was signifying because, in roughly a month’s time, the orthodox Hanukah would be celebrated and Ursa Minor would once again be rotating around the North Star. What was different and why was it important for the manchild company; the Tip of the Spear group, to mark this early Feast of Dedication...? because from what I could see, Ursa Minor goes through the same positions during the orthodox Hanukah BECAUSE it is anchored to the North Star, Polaris. This is what I heard:
“PREPARATION COMES BEFORE POSITIONING
SEALING COMES BEFORE REVEALING
MARKING COMES BEFORE MANIFESTATION
POSITIONING COMES BEFORE FIRE-POWER
REHEARSAL COMES BEFORE RELEASE
All of these statements describe part of Heavenly Logistics – the movement of troops and supplies for the battle ahead. We have been doing 40 days of washing of the Word; a baptism by the Spirit of Elijah. This is the PREPARATION spoken of. It ends on Thursday 1st December. Remember that I said that during the Orthodox Hanukah celebration, the Ursids meteor
shower is on display. Well, here we see the FIREPOWER referenced by the Lord! But first we had to get into POSITION, properly and permanently anchored to the throne of God, and this occurred during your time with the Spirit in these days of washing. Once fully positioned, SEALING to anchor you in specific position in this manchild company is accomplished. Like a fully cut and polished jewel, you must be set in place in Heaven’s choice of setting in the heavenly sphere – this is why full yieldedness was mandatory. His people offer themselves willingly in the Day of His Power (Ps 110).
We see an example of all these logistics in the life of Esther. She was prepared before she was positioned and set in place. She was sealed in her appointed place by the placing of the crown upon her head and revealed to the nation as the one whom the king loved more than all the other women. At that time, it was not known what the battle ahead would specifically look like, but there was Divine purpose in her positioning. Esther was POSITIONED before Haman rose to
become ‘the son of the right hand’. He was not the king’s son but the gift of the king’s signet ring gave him the rights of the firstborn, set in place with a father’s authority! King Xerxes was a ‘king of kings’ as he ruled over 127 provinces (Esther 1:1). The placing of Esther and the rise of Haman, the counterfeit son of the right hand, give us prophetic clues about the rising and setting in place of the antichrist in these days. He takes the position of a first-born ‘son’ (antichrist means ‘instead of Christ’). Heaven is positioning its manchild company first, fully armed and equipped for the battle ahead. Esther’s FIRE-POWER and spiritual warfare blueprint was received during her fast and effected during her love feasts with the king and his sidekick, Haman, and also with the release of the decree that the people of God could defend themselves
when Haman’s diabolical attack plan was appointed to unfold (the victory celebrated during Purim). After Esther became queen, she must have thought, “Oh this is great but why am I in this position, God?” Well, it soon became very clear! And perhaps it is the same for you.... God may have moved you geographically or spiritually to a new position but you cannot see clearly what it is you are to do now that you are set in place there. Don’t fret – it will all become abundantly clear shortly!
I will share more about the prophetic significance of this Ursids meteor shower later and discuss the constellation in detail in part 2 of this message, but first, let’s continue with Esther. Did you know Esther was taken to the king on the 1st of Tevet, the 10th month? For the Early Barley Ripeness calendar, this fell on last Saturday 26th November! Yes, Esther was presented to the king, was chosen, crowned and permanently positioned in the Royal House during the last 3 days of the Feast of Dedication; Hanukah. This is yet another reason why I feel the Holy Spirit is emphasising taking note of the Early Barley Ripeness Hanukah dates. Given what is unfolding in the earth after the COP27 and G20 summit, it is clearly very important for the Tip of the Spear to be rightly positioned, as time is of the essence. A month is going to make a big difference these days, so highly trained troops being rightly positioned in heavenly places (and possibly in earthly places) is a big part of Heavenly Logistics before the battle that is going to break out. Remember in Psalm 2, when the kings of the earth banded together against God, He laughed because He was one step ahead. His Son is ALREADY INSTALLED on His holy hill of Zion.
John the Baptist said he baptised with water, but One was coming Who would baptise with the Spirit and FIRE! How can a vessel be ignited unless it is full of the required fuel? That is why the command came to IMMERSE. Preparation is of paramount importance and so is positioning. It is no good choosing your own position and thinking you can successfully wage war. The Lord utters His voice before His army. The Commander in Chief chooses who stands where and with what
weapon. That’s just basic battle order. Now look again at the position of the constellations at dawn on the 1st day of the Early Barley Ripeness Hanukah. Why did I choose dawn? Because psalm 110 tells us that from the womb of the morning will spring forth His young men, who are as the dew. The womb of the morning is the hours when dawn manifests or is birthed. This is the morning watch, from 3 – 6am. By 6am, things are clearly visible. Do you see Polaris, Kochab and
Arcturus in ALIGNMENT as the sun rises? He is coming; the One with eyes of Fire, and as you continue gazing at His face, the moment of ignition will come. You will no longer be filled with the water of the Word. Then it will be the fire of the Word which fills the manchild company. The Bible tells us His Word is like a FIRE (see Jeremiah 5:14, 20:9 and 23:29). All these instances are part of a description of judgement unfolding:
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Jer 20:8 For whenever I speak, I must cry out and complain; I shout, Violence and destruction!
For the word of the Lord has become to me a reproach and a derision and has brought me insult all day long.
Jer 20:9 If I say, I will not make mention of [the Lord] or speak any more in His name, in my mind and heart it is as if there were a burning fire shut up in my bones. And I am weary of enduring and holding it in; I cannot [contain it any longer].
Jer 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? says the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
Look at what Isaiah 66:15 says:
Isa 66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
He makes His messengers a flame of fire1 How? By baptizing them with the Spirit and fire! Are you positioned in heavenly places, prepared to become a flame of fire, where zeal for His house consumes you? Or are you so attached to things here on the earth that your soul, mind and emotions are greatly affected by the things you see happening in the world system? Being anchored to true North (remember Enoch said, “Face North and anchor your heart at the throne of God”) means you come up to a higher level spiritually, where you operate in the Spirit and your soul is in subjection to your spirit – not the other way round. This change is moving out of the place of mixture to the place of complete surrender as a bondslave of the Lamb.
Isa 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
Who will be slain? Verse 17 tells us it is those sacrificing to idols and following after a counterfeit god in the midst of them. Who is this counterfeit god? Well, the Eternal True God dwells in the midst of the praises of His people, so the counterfeit is the antichrist. It is those who follow after and swear allegiance to the antichrist who will be slain by the righteous judgements of the Lord if they will not turn and repent. Verse 17 says that their works and their thoughts shall come to an end. Doesn’t that sound like the wicked who will have neither root nor branch in the day that burns like an oven (Malachi
Remember after Jesus was baptised by John and the Father openly declared Him to be Hi Son (i.e. He was set in place spiritually or we would call it ‘adoption of the son’), He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be assayed. In other words, to prove His authenticity and purity. He was tested in 3 areas: the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. THEN He emerged from the wilderness in the power of the Spirit and began to wreak havoc on the enemy’s kingdom! Our washing with the water of the Word, being fully IMMERSED by the Spirit of Elijah, who is inducting the manchild into ministry, is completed on 1st December. !7 days later, the Ursids meteor shower is seen emerging from the ursa minor constellation. So, during those 16 days, expect testing and assaying. This is not the heat of purification – that was the preparation season where the dross was removed. This is the assaying season. Expect harassment from the dark realm and temptation in the same three areas Jesus experienced. And as you respond, “It is written”, you are being declared worthy of bearing the seal of the bondservant of God. A coal is placed in the fire UNTIL the fire is within the coal!
Now let’s examine what is going on with Ursa Minor during the Orthodox Hanukah, which begins on the evening of 18th December 2022.
As the 1st watch of night on Orthodox Hanukah day 1 draws to a close, the dragon is rising into plain view as the darkness deepens in the earth and the burning coals (Ursids meteor shower) of warfare has begun being poured out from among ‘those who await Him who comes’ (Kochab)– targeting the underbelly of the dragon. The radiant of a meteor shower is the celestial point in the sky from which the paths of meteors appear to originate. The Ursids meteor activity
begins annually around December 17 and runs until the 25th or 26th. This meteor shower is named for its radiant point, which is located near the star Beta Ursae Minoris (another name for Kochab) in the constellation Ursa Minor.
Apparently, the physical origin of the meteors in this shower is Comet tuttle/8P. The Tuttle surname comes from the Old Norse personal name "þorkell," made up of the elements "þórr," or "Thor," name of the Scandinavian god of thunder and "ketill," meaning "a cauldron." Now we know that the Word describes our true God of Glory as the One Who thunders in
Psalm 29 - and we also know that burning coals are ignited by His breath and accompany His coming. Look at these verses:
Psa 18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
Psa 18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. Psa 18:13 The LORD
also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
Eze 1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance
of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
Hab 3:5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet.
As the Ursids meteor shower is seen in the heavens in December 2022, it depicts the God of Glory Who thunders against the dragon and pours out fiery judgement on the underbelly of this beast. And where is the region from which this fiery outpouring is coming? It is Kochab; ‘those who await His coming’. Rightly positioned and sealed and filled with the fiery zeal of the Lord of Hosts, they allow the God Who is a Man of War to utter His voice through them and as bondslave
messengers of fire, they wage war on the rising dragon. Now, let’s look at what is happening in the heavens in the morning watch of the first day of Orthodox Hanukah (19th Dec). Amazingly, there are now four stars AND the moon in alignment. We know what Kochab and Arcturus mean, but what is the name of the star in the left shoulder of the Bootes constellation? It is Seginus, the Arabic form of the Greek version of Bootes. So, Seginus also means ‘He comes’ – a second witness. Can you hear the theme the Holy Spirit is emphasizing? So, amidst war in the heavens with fiery judgements being poured out from the area of the anchored manchild company, we
see the dragon fully risen and visible, but the manchild company are not focused upon him, but fully aligned with Him Who Comes! Higher up and anchored at the throne of God, they face east and watch for His coming
alignment of Polaris, Kochab, Seginus in left shoulder of Bootes, Arcturus AND THE MOON, dragon fully visible and Ursa Minor pouring out burning coals.
Notice that by the morning watch, Arcturus has risen in the east announcing ‘He cometh’ and the sun is not yet visible, it is still astronomical twilight. This is a depiction of a prophetic watchman warning heralded brightly, long before the morning star rises after 8am. Arcturus speaks of those who are wise shining like stars as they led many to repentance and righteousness in the darkness of the dragon’s rising.
WAR IN HEAVEN - the manchild company waging war upon the dragon during the Ursids meteor shower
Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. .... Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he hath but a short time.
Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. THE dragon is going to become fully visible on the earth in the form of the antichrist and persecution will be unleashed on a large scale. Just remember, precious remnant, HE ONLY HAS A SHORT TIME.
REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE AND WHOSE YOU ARE! You were chosen to be alive at this very moment. God never makes mistakes and through our God we will do valiantly.
It is He who will tread down our enemies. Now remember I said, Esther was taken to the king on the 1st day of the 10th month, Tevet. Well, in the Orthodox Calendar, this date falls on 25th December!! Yes, the day that the pagans celebrate the rebirth of the sun god and many
Christians observe the birth of Jesus coincides this year with the orthodox date for Esther’s rise to the position of queen.
WE know from the Word of God that Esther was POSITIONED before receiving authority and power to wage war on the enemy of God’s people. Yet, in the heavenlies, the Ursid meteor shower is coming to an end by 25th/26th December 2022...so, we find here the Orthodox date for the positioning of the Bride is accompanied by waning coals of fire in the heavens.
This does not fit in with the prophetic picture spoken by the Spirit: POSITIONING COMES BEFORE FIRE-POWER. Therefore, we can see again the utmost importance of keeping in step as the Tip of the Spear and marking the Early Barley Ripeness Hanukah. The time of setting in place, dedicating and sealing is of the utmost importance, BEFORE the baptism of fire equipping us to wage war (depicted by meteors emerging from the radiant of Kochab). The Ursids meteor shower is on display in the Northern Hemisphere during the Orthodox Feast of Dedication (Hanukah) from the 18th Dec to the 26th Dec, peaking on the 23rd. Hopefully you will be able to view it on one of these nights. When you do, remember our God comes with fire to execute His righteous judgements!
As our time of washing with the water of the Word comes to an end, realise that you have been changed more than you know during this immersion. You have become a vessel fit for the Master’s use. Like Esther, prepared fully for her face-to- face moment with the king, you too have cooperated with the Spirit and been cleansed and sanctified. Now comes fire- power, anointing and equipping for your appointed position...(In part 2, I will share some insights on the other stars in Ursa Minor and the intriguing exercise the Holy Spirit directed me
to do in order to gain spiritual understanding)
