On October 2, 2023, BBC News reported that a “Jupiter-sized ‘planets’ free-floating in space, unconnected to any star, have been spotted by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). What’s intriguing about the discovery is that these objects appear to be moving in pairs. Astronomers are currently sturggling to explain them. The telescope observed about 40 pairs in a fabulously detailed new survey of the famous Orion Nebula. They’ve been nicknamed Jupiter Mass Binary Objects, or “JuMBOs” for short.”
This discovery is another interesting fact that really inspired all obedient Christians to strive to that “better country, that is, an heavenly” Hebrews 11:16.
The Orion Nebula is a popular target for astronomers and astrophotographers according to space.com. Even the Vatican has a telescope called Lucifer in Arizona focused on the Orion Nebula for a long time. Orion is located on the celestial equator and is visible throughout the world. Observers from the Northern Hemisphere can see it in the southwestern skies, while in the Southern Hemisphere, Orion can be found in the northwestern skies. Check this out.
So, What’s special about Orion Nebula?
Those who diligently study their Bible, especially prophecy, will find that “on the sides of the North” refers to the Orion Nebula, home to the city of our God.
- Psalms 48:1-2 “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”
- Amos 5:8 “Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:”
This is why, in order to be like the most High, Satan wanted to set up his throne “in the sides of the north.”
- Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I (Satan) will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Remember, Satan was the covering cherub in heaven before he fell, so he knows where heaven is.
Now, we have a last-days prophet who reveals information about Orion that scientists have only lately discovered. She said:
“Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God. The Holy City will come down through that open space. I saw that the powers of earth are now being shaken and that events come in order. War, and rumors of war, sword, famine, and pestilence are first to shake the powers of earth, then the voice of God will shake the sun, moon, and stars, and this earth also. I saw that the shaking of the powers in Europe is not, as some teach, the shaking of the powers of heaven, but it is the shaking of the angry nations.” –Early Writings page 41
Yes, the open space in Orion is where the Holy City, the New Jerusalem will come down.
Intriguingly, astronomers also captured a massive cloud coming from the Orion nebula.
Stunning Photo Captures Reflective Cloud in Orion Constellation
Near the center of new APEX image is a dark spot that stands out against the more colorful background, a feature that surprised some researchers studying the photo. “Normally, a dark patch such as this would indicate a dense cloud of cosmic dust, obscuring the stars and nebula behind it,” officials with the European Southern Observatory, which oversees the APEX said in a statement. “However, in this image we can see that the patch remains strikingly dark, even when the APEX observations are included.” – Yahoo news
So, what does that cloud in Orion suggest? Again, the diligent Bible student knows that near the end, we will see with our eyes the cloud in which our Lord Jesus sits.
Matthew 24:30 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
We don’t know if this is that cloud, and I’m not going to guess but given that we are seeing the fulfillment of all prophetic events, plus we still have to deal with the mark of the beast and the time of trouble, we do know Jesus is “even at the doors” Matthew 24:33 to save us as He promised. We’re almost home!
