The Lion and the Serpent

lion and serpent            This week at about 11:00 pm the warring constellations of Leo (the Lion) and Hydra (The Serpent) will be at their highest point in the Southern sky.


            Leo (the Lion) is a zodiacal constellation and is the last chapter of the Star Bible. The Lion represents Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in His final triumph over Satan, the Serpent. The Star named Minchar Al Alsad, meaning “Punishing of the Lion”, shows Christ executing the sentence on Satan and the bright Star Regulus, meaning “Treading Underfoot” shows the fate of Satan.

            Just below Leo is the constellation Hydra (the Serpent) which represents Satan as he is finally “Tread Underfoot” by Leo. Hydra is pictured as a dead snake which has been cut into pieces. The brightest Star in Hydra, named Alphard, means “The Separated” and coveys this message. Two other constellations associated with Leo show God’s judgment on Satan, Corvus (The Raven) which is shown eating the flesh of the Serpent, and Crater (The Cup) pouring out God’s wrath on the Serpent.

            Taken together, these constellations picture God’s final judgment (Leo) on Satan and his followers (Hydra).The common name for the reality pictured by Leo and Hydra is Hell.  

            The constellation Leo is scheduled to enter the Fall Equinox, the time when God’s feasts of Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles point to the End of the Age and the judgment to come, in the year 2121 AD. Adding to this message is the Star Denebola, “The Lord Who Comes”, which tells of the return of Christ. We must expect that Christ will be returning soon. 

            Leo is a distinctive constellation and will be easier to find as the moon passes near its Bright Star Regulus on March 13. If you happen to live in New York City, a small asteroid will pass over and black out Regulus for one minute at 2:06 A.M. on the night of March 19-20.

            The little minute over New York reminds us of God’s grace, which is still available, but will not be available forever. Get it while you can.
