Indeed, we are. I will surely be condemned as a 'new ager' for sharing what I know. :shk: Of course, you know me--that is immaterial in the
The bible gives every indication that 'new age' is where we are headed--not 'new age' as in alternative religions which compromise the truth in
favor of ego, but the age wherein death and the grave are abolished, replaced with a 'new heaven and new earth.'
In the NT, 3 different words are translated 'world': aion, kosmos, and oikoumene. Aion is basically 'age,' as well you know, not so much
eternal as perpetual. Correct me if I'm wrong, Simon, since I know you know way more about it than I do.
But maybe that might help your perspective regarding your revelation as it relates to scripture. I know it is a valid one, because it is one that I
had some time ago--and I know many others whom this has been revealed to.
I've also heard it called 'the age of benevolence.' It is the age of the 'water-bearer'--Aquarius--who symbolizes this new philosophy that lies
beyond the threshold upon which the world (kosmos) currently hovers in expectation:
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give
him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on
me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Jesus spoke those words at the dawning of the Age of Pisces--a time characterized by the disciple's investment work as 'fishers of men.' But He
was actually speaking of the age to come 2000 years later. The fishing is over, it's time to drink at the fountain:
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes.
Astronomy stems from the Greek word, 'asteri' - star and the Greek word 'nomos' or Law. Astrology stems from 'asteri' and 'logos' or
word - I'm Greek so I'm aware of this, I wouldn't mind both seeing it from both perspectives, or both sides of the 'coin.'
And stars are luminaries--representative of 'princes' in the Bible, and the brightest one, of course, is the 'Day Star.'
Discussion is healthy. As far as I'm aware, the Age of Pisces spawned the coming of a Christ and the beginnings of the Christian religion.
Taurus came before Pisces and spawned the Jewish religion with Moses as it's Messiah.
Actually, the Exodus marked the end of the Taurean Age and the beginning the Arien Age (Aries, the Ram).
From my own research, I have a very strong suspicion that the Exodus occured concurrently with the certain volcanic explosion of Santorini that was so
catastrophic that it brought an abrupt and complete end to that Island's 'Minoan' Society. (Minotaur, or bull, worshippers!) It is believed by
those who study such things (not religious types but science types) that the shockwaves from the cataclysm caused 200 foot tidal waves on every shore
of the Mediterranean. This, of course, would definitely have disrupted the local ecology around Egypt, especially in regard to the Nile.
Without getting derailed, suffice it to say that if my theory is accurate, a lot of seemingly fictious and/or unrelated events are both confirmed and
reconciled. It certainly would explain why a golden calf was the idol of choice and why it was such a no-no (besides the obvious).
The 'zodiac' theme of the OT can certainly be understood as that of the 'Ram' if one looks at it objectively. That age ended and the age of Pisces
began. And now we begin the next one. Aquarius is also a sign associated with true philadelphia--agape love that is given by the grace of God.
'The Son of Man' is the water-bearer: bearing living waters for the restoration of the human spirit.
Oh and btw, I'm half Scottish - my mothers side of the family are from Biggar in Lanarkshire.
And I be Scotch-Irish meself, dear laddie! Aye, 'tis true this world be small indeed.
I've got much more about this, if you want to dive deeper...
