I decided on the last post that it really wasn’t a final so this will be the final final… this is a deep study, and if you find it interesting you’ll have to pursue it on your own, you won’t regret it… please refer to lessons 1 through 5 to bring you to this point in our study.
Here we come to the end of the circle.We began with Virgo and we end with Leo. No one who has followed our interpretation can doubt that we have here the solving of the Riddle of the Sphinx. For its head is Virgo and its tail is Leo.
In Leo we reach the end of the Revelation as inspired in the Word of God; and it is the end as written in the heavens. BAILLY …(Astronomy) says, “the Zodiac must have been first divided when the sun at the summer solstice was in Virgo, where the woman’s head joins the Lion’s Tail.”
As to its antiquity there can be no doubt. JAMIESON says, ” the Lion does not seem to have been placed among the Zodiacal symbols, because Hercules was fabled to have slain the Nemean lion. It would seem, on the contrary, that Hercules, who represented the Sun, was said to have slain the Nemean Lion, because Leo was already a zodiacal sign. Hercules flourished 3000 years ago, and consequently posterior to the period when the summer solstice accorded with Leo.” (Celestial Atlas, pg.40)
There is no confusion about this sign. In the ancient Zodiacs of Egypt (Denderah, Esneh) and India we find the Lion. The same occurs on the Mithraic monuments where Leo is passant, as he is in Moor’s Hindu, and Sir William Jone’s Oriental Zodiacs. In Kircher’s Zodiac he is courrant; in the Egyptian Zodiacs he is couchant.
It’s Egyptian name is Pi Mentekeon, which means ‘the pouring out.’ This is no pouring out or inundation of the Nile, but it is the pouring out of the Cup of Divine wrath on that Old Serpent. This is the one great truth of the closing chapter of this last book.
IT IS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH AROUSED FOR THE RENDERING OF THE PREY. His feet are over the head of the Hydra, the great Serpent, and just about to descend upon it and crush it.
The three constellations of the Sign complete this final picture: Hydra, the old Serpent destroyed…Crater, the Cup of Divine wrath poured out upon him…Corvus, the Bird of prey devouring him….
Note: for further details concerning this Sign and others please find the book… The Witness of The Stars, by E.W. Bullinger…
In Israel’s dying blessing the prophetic words foretold of Judah: “Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies;… Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, And as a great lion; who shall stir him up?”

Final Note: These studies have been presented, because more than likely the average person is not going to pursue this matter in such detail… and I doubt it would be presented in a church setting, although I wish it would… I have found the best way to study is on my own with the precious guidance of the Holy Spirit… I will be presenting more studies in the near future on topics that will absolutely blow your mind… stay tuned we’re just getting started… we yearn for your coming Lord…. please don’t tarry too long…
