This week at about 10:00 pm the stars of the constellation Gemini (The United) will be directly overhead at the Zenith point in the Southern U.S.
Gemini is one of the Zodiacal constellations and is the Tenth Chapter of the Star Bible. The name means “The Twins” in Greek but in the ancient Hebrew it means “The United.” It is a picture of two men standing together who are united as one. The first contains the bright star Pollux, meaning “He Who Comes to Suffer” at its head, with the Star Alhena, meaning “Wounded” at its feet, and is clearly a picture of the First Coming of Christ. The second figure has Castor, “The Ruler” as its head are Mebsuth, “Treading under foot” at its foot, and shows the return of Christ. Together the stars of Gemini represent the time of Christ ‘s rule when He returns.
The bright stars of Gemini, Castor and Pollux, are also part of the celestial time clock which produces signs in the Sun, Moon, and Stars surrounding the appearances of Christ. In 6 BC the precession of the equinoxes carried the Star Pollux “He Who comes to Suffer,” directly overhead at Zenith in Jerusalem. This was a sign of the coming advent of Christ and described his sacrificial death on the cross.
Now, over 2000 years later, the precession of the equinoxes has carried the Star Castor, “The Ruler”, close to the Zenith point over Jerusalem. This Star is a sign of the Second Coming of Christ, when He will return to rule on Earth. It will move to Zenith over Jerusalem in 2121 AD. While no one knows the day or hour of Christ’s return, the movement of Castor toward Zenith, along with the other signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars, shows that the time for the return of Christ is near.
Also visible this week is the bright planet Jupiter, whose great red spot reminds us of the suffering of Jesus and His wounded side. Jupiter is found on the Castor side of Gemini, further reminding us that the time of Christ’s return to Rule is coming near.
So look overhead tonight to Castor and Pollux, which mark the time between the First and Second Coming of Christ. And tell someone that there may only be a short time left to accept God’s offer of eternal life.
