Wobbling Earth may turn zodiac forecasts wrong this year (Isaiah 24 and Revelation 6)

WASHINGTON: All your horoscope predictions for the year 2011 are bound to be wrong. Why? Because the stars are not aligned as your astrologer thinks they are.

All zodiac signs – Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius or Pisces – were originally based on the constellation the sun was in the day you were born.

However, there is a major phenomenon that will disregard all this – the Earth wobbles, a phenomenon called precession.

Over the 2,500 years or so since the zodiac was established, your sign has moved about a month relative to the sun and stars, reports Live Science.

The ancient Babylonians based the zodiac on which constellation the sun appeared to be in when a person was born. Since then, the moon's has exerted a gravitation pull on Earth, causing a "wobble" on its axis that has shifted the stars' alignment by about a month.

"Because of this change in the tilt, the Earth is over here and the sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago when this study of the stars began," astronomer Parke Kunkle said. So your New Year resolutions may belong to someone else.

Isaiah 24.
1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.

4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.

9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.
10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.
13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.

23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

There are 28 days to each lunar month, 364 days to each lunar year and 13 months to each lunar year. The 365,366 days years are FALSE concepts. It is the starry designs that form the background to each lunar month that constitute the ZODIAC SIGNS.There are therefore THIRTEEN Zodiac signs.OPHIUCHUS - The serpent holder - which is between Scorpio and Sagittarius, is the one which has been denied existence. The fact that no month is more than 28 days long puts a question mark on the concept of Leap Day and leap year... on all the 30-day and 31 day months.

THE 13TH ZODIAC

Revelation 6:15-17 (King James Version)

15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

...according to Islam.

The 365,366 days years are FALSE concepts.

Because, no doubt, it's just an illusion that the four seasons fall at the same time of the year, which is the length of time the earth takes to circle the sun.

We probably wouldn't have been here without it, and if we would have, we'd wish we weren't. Our Moon is VERY important to the general stability of things on this planet.

Without our moon the earth would have an 8 hour rotation giving us four hours of daylight and four hours of night.

Not to mention wild random seasonal fluctuations.

Is it Biblical Prophecy or Climate Change?

What do you believe?

Strange Claim: The Sun Rose 2 Days Early in Greenland..

Residents of a town on the western coast of Greenland may have seen the sun peek over the horizon 48 hours earlier than its usual arrival on Jan. 13, sparking speculation, and disagreements, over possible causes.

The town of Ilulissat sits just above the Arctic Circle, meaning its residents had been without any sunlight for a good chunk of the winter, and traditionally they’d expect to see their “first sunrise” on Jan. 13.

http://www.livescience.com/environment/early-sunrise-arctic-greenland-110117.html

The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. (Joel 2:31)

Behold, the day of the Lord is coming ... the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light. Thus I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their iniquity. (Isaiah 13: 9-11)

Come, tread, for the wine press is full; the vats overflow for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon grow dark and the stars lose their brightness. The Lord roars from Zion and utters His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth tremble. (Joel 3: 13-16)

I’ve always been interesting in finding out exactly where our Moon came from. I’ve read several plausible theories, but no one seems to absolutely know.

Interestingly enough, the wobble of the earth grows wilder as the moon moves away at about an inch per year.

And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory."

The big crash theory seems to be the one with the most evidence to support it IMO.

Charles Darwin’s son came up with the spinoff theory but could never quite work the math to get it any closer than about 5000 miles from the surface of the earth. However he was correct that the moon is moving away.

I guess that I have no idea what you might be talking about then. The rapture will occur on Yom Terua, when the “day of the Lord” begins. Paul discusses it with the Thessalonians, and explains that they would not be in the dark about when it was due, while those less educated in the meaning of the feasts would be taken by surprise like a “thief in the night.”

Revelation 6:13-15

and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.

The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Isaiah 34:4
All the stars of the heavens will be dissolved
and the sky rolled up like a scroll;
all the starry host will fall
like withered leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.....

Wobbling Earth may turn zodiac forecasts wrong this year (Isaiah 24 and Revelation 6)

Geez! No reason to get apocalyptic. The precession of the equinox has had the zodiac forecasts wrong for a couple thousand years at least already. It's actually pretty funny.

Also, no blockade from incoming asteroids, meteors and comets. Take a look at the damage done to the lunar surface sometime. Many of those missiles were intended for us.

Miraculously, the Moon's exactly the same size as the Sun at relative distances to the Earth. This making perfect solar eclipses possible. Talk about God's unique design to make human life on Earth posper? It's contrary to every other solar system we've yet observed. Most planets have many, many moons only a fraction of our Moon's relative size.
