In my years of study and research, I think the most mind boggling thing that I have encountered has been religious ideology. I have learned that far too often the people that have such strong religious convictions often are the least informed. In an effort to help those whom seek to however grow mentally and spiritually I offer The Real Bible Chronicles. I do this in hopes of assisting others and not to be destructive to anyone’s beliefs.
We start with the story of Adam and Eve, I first want the reader to understand that the Bible is a codex. Which many interpret this word to being an ancient manuscript. They however fail to acknowledge the word code in codex. Let us examine this book with an open heart and mind so that “God” can be with us all!
Here is the commencement of all prophecy in Genesis 3:15, spoken to the serpent: “I will put enmity between thee and the woman,
and between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.” This is the prophetic announcement which the Revelation in the heavens and in the Book is designed to unfold and develop. It lies at the root of all the ancient traditions and mythologies, which are simply the perversion and corruption of primitive truth.
VIRGO is represented as a woman with a branch in her right hand, and some ears of corn in her left hand. Thus giving a two-fold testimony of the Coming One.
The name of this sign in the Hebrew is Bethulah, which means a virgin, and in the Arabic a branch. The two words are connected, as in Latin–Virgo, which means a virgin; and virga, which means a branch (Vulg. Isa 11:1). Another name is Sunbul, Arabic, an ear of corn.
In Genesis 3:15 she is presented only as a woman; but in later prophecies her nationality is defined as being of the stock of Israel, the seed of Abraham, the line of David; and, further,
she is to be a virgin. There are two prominent prophecies of her and her seed: one is connected with the first coming in incarnation, Isaiah 7:14 (quoted in Matthew 1:23).
“Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, And shall call his name Immanuel.”
The other is connected with His second coming, leaping over the sufferings and this present interval of His rejection, and
looking forward to His coming in glory and judgment, Isaiah 9:6, 7 (quoted in Luke 2:11 and 1 :32, 33).
“For unto us a child is born, Unto us a son is given; *
And the government shall be upon His shoulder;
And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government there shall be no end.
Upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, To order it, and to establish it
With judgment and with justice From henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
- Here, the fact of His humiliation, together with this long period of His rejection, is leaped over, and the prophecy passes on at once–over at least a period of 1893 years–to this “glory which should follow.”
It is difficult to separate the Virgin and her Seed in the
prophecy; and so, here, we have first the sign VIRGO, where the name points to her as the prominent subject; while in the first
of the three constellations of this sign, where the woman appears again, the name COMA points to the child as the great subject.
Virgo contains 110 stars, viz., one of the 1st magnitude, six of the 3rd, ten of the 4th, etc.
ARATUS thus sings of them:
“Beneath Bootes feet the Virgin seek, Who carries in her hand a glittering spike. Over her shoulder there revolves a star In the right wing, superlatively bright;
It rolls beneath the tail, and may compare
With the bright stars that deck the Greater Bear. Upon her sholder one bright star is borne,
One clasps the circling girdle of her loins, One at her bending knee; and in her hand Glitters that bright and golden Ear of Corn.
Thus the brightest star in VIRGO (a) * has an ancient name, handed down to us in all the star-maps, in which the Hebrew word Tsemech is preserved. It is called in Arabic Al Zimach, which means the branch. This star is in the ear of corn which she
holds in her left hand. Hence the star has a modern Latin name, which has almost superseded the ancient one, Spica, which means, an ear of corn. But this hides the great truth revealed by its
name Al Zimach. It foretold the coming of Him who should bear this name. The same Divine inspiration has, in the written Word, four times connected it with Him. There are twenty Hebrew words translated “Branch,” but only one of them (Tsemech) is used
Notice that Adam, Eve, & The Serpent form a trine/trinity just as Adam and Eve are trine with Coma
Al Zimach – means “the Branch”, see Isaiah 4:2; 11:1, Jer. 23:5, Zech. 3:8; 6:12 this is the brightest star in Virgo “the virgin”!
Virgo symbolizes a virgin. In the first part of the Gospel story, the virgin Marry gives birth to Jesus Christ. One of the stars of Virgo is named Al Zimach, which means “branch.” Jesus is “the branch” that bears fruit as seen in Galatians 5. This means that Jesus teaches all unbelievers about the fruits of the Spirit.
