A Throne Set in Heaven

A Throne Set in Heaven

Ruth 2:12 May YHVH repay your work, and a full reward be
given you by ELoHY of Israel, under whose wings you have come
for refuge.”

As then say in Brooklyn, Such a deal!

And keep in mind the phrase ‘under whose wings…’

One day as I was reading through the book of Revelation and
read through this section…

Revelation 4:6 Before the throne there was a sea of glass,
like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne,
were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. 7. The first
living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf,
the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature
was like a flying eagle. 8. The four living creatures, each
having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do

not rest day or night, saying,

"Holy, holy, holy,
Who was and is and is to come!"

אַרְבַּע הַחַיּוֹת שֵׁשׁ כְּנָפַיִם שֵׁשׁ כְּנָפַיִם לְאֶחָת וְהֵן מְלֵאוֹת עֵינַיִם מִסָּבִיב וּמִלִּפְנִים וְאֵין־דֳּמִי לָהֶן יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה וְאׂמְרוֹת קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ קָדוֹשׁ יְהוָֹה אֱלׂהִים צְבָאוֹת הָיָה וְהוֶֹה וְיָבוֹא׃

And I happened to have my planisphere close by and I noticed
that the four ‘living creatures’ are the constellations (stars / ‘full of eyes
around and within’). Wow! So from this description can we determine
the location of The Throne? Yes indeed!

The first was like a lion (Leo), the second like a calf (Taurus), the third
like a man (Aquarius), and the fourth like a flying eagle (Scorpio, the
Eagles gate).

Now, what constellation is located within these four?


In astronomy, a planisphere is a star chart analog computing
instrument in the form of two adjustable disks that rotate on a
common pivot.


The great "red giant", war-like Aldebaran is one of the four "Guardians
of Heaven" - sentinels watching over other stars. It formed one of the
four royal stars of Persia as "Watcher of the East".

These were also called archangel stars; this star Aldebaran was
Michael - Military Commander of the Heavenly Host. The others were;
Gabriel (Fomalhaut) Watcher of the South; Raphael (Regulus)
Watcher of the North; Uriel (Antares) Watcher of the West. At one time
they marked the two Equinoxes and two Solstices. Aldebaran marked
the zero Aries point in 3044 BC, Antares marked zero Libra 3052 BC,
Fomalhaut marked zero Capricornus, 2582 BC, Regulus marked zero
Cancer 2345 BC. [The angel associations come from Eric Morse, The
Living Stars, p.35. Allen's explanation of these four stars on p.256 of
Star Names]

Also, (from the same page):

The Persian astronomer Al Biruni (973-1048 A.D.) quoted, as titles
indigenous to Arabia, Al Fanik, the Stallion Camel; Al Fatik, the Fat
Camel; and Al Muhdij, the Female Camel,— the smaller adjacent stars
of the Hyades (a group of stars on the face of the Bull) being the Little
Camels; and it was Tali al Najm and Hadi al Najm, equivalents of the
Stella Dominatrix of classical ages, as if driving the Pleiades before it
(Pleiades are a group of stars on the shoulders of the Bull). Indeed in
the last century Niebuhr heard the synonymous Saik al Thurayya on
the Arabian shores of the Persian Gulf. A later name was Ain al Thaur,
— which Western astronomers corrupted to Atin and Hain Altor,—
identical with Greek Omma Boos, Latin Oculus Tauri, and the early
English Bull’s Eye, even now a common title. The Italian astronomer
Riccioli (1598-1671) gave this more definitely as Oculus australis
(“southern eye”), and Aben Ezra as the left Eye [it is on the bull’s
right eye].

The Persians use the designation AL, the Hebrews use EL, and this
will become clearer later in this article.

Watcher: Daniel 4:13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed,
and, behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from heaven;
4:14 He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and
cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the
beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:

“It appears that the Milky Way is called the River Dinur, mentioned
in Daniel 7:10…” SEFER YETZIRAH, Aryeh Kaplan

Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him;
thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten
thousand stood before him; the judgment was set, and the books were

י  נְהַר דִּי-נוּר, נָגֵד וְנָפֵק מִן-קֳדָמוֹהִי, אֶלֶף אלפים (אַלְפִין) יְשַׁמְּשׁוּנֵּהּ, וְרִבּוֹ רבון (רִבְבָן) קָדָמוֹהִי יְקוּמוּן; דִּינָא יְתִב, וְסִפְרִין פְּתִיחוּ.

There it is…


And now back to… under His wings…

Now it gets real fun!

Psalms 46:1 For the conductor by the sons of Korah, on the alamos, a song.
2. ELoHIM is a refuge and strength for us, a help in distress, very
accessible. 3. Therefore, we shall not be afraid when the earth is
transformed, and at mountains collapse in the heart of the seas;
4. when its waters rage and are muddied, mountains quake in His
majesty, Selah.

5. A river; It’s streams will gladden the City of ELoHIM, the most
sacred of the dwellings of the Most High. 6. ELoHIM is in its midst, it
shall not falter; ELoHIM will help it towards morning. 7. Nations are in
turmoil, kingdoms totter; He has raised His voice, the earth dissolves.
8. YHVH TZaVOT is with us, a stronghold for us is the ELoHY of
Yacov, Selah.

9. Go and see the works of YHVH, Who has wrought devastation in
the land. 10. He causes wars to cease to the end of the earth; He will
break the bow, and cut the spear, He will burn chariots in fire. 11.
Desist and know that I am ELoHIM; I shall be exalted upon the earth.
12. YHVH TZaVOT, is with us, a stronghold for us is the EloHY
Yacov, Selah.

Selah, a musical notation
Ben Yehuda’s Hebrew English Dictionary

Many of the Psalms were set to music, Selah means ‘repeat.’

5. A river; It’s streams will gladden the City of ELoHIM, the most
sacred of the dwellings of the Most High.

ה נָהָר--פְּלָגָיו, יְשַׂמְּחוּ עִיר-אֱלֹהִים; קְדֹשׁ, מִשְׁכְּנֵי עֶלְיוֹן.

Whoa! This verse is loaded with information!

Exquisite Albireo, a much loved double star

Albireo is 2 stars

Albireo, also known as Beta Cygni, is the second-brightest star in the
constellation Cygnus the Swan. At first glance, it doesn’t particularly
stand out. But viewing this star through a small telescope can take
your breath away. It resolves into a striking double, with one
component a lovely gold star and the other a dimmer blue close by.
Although the two stars appear close in the sky, from our perspective,
astronomers still don’t know for sure if they’re gravitationally bound to
each other. It doesn’t matter. The color contrast between the two is so
striking and so beautiful that Albireo is one of the sky’s most beloved

Cygnus the Swan flies the Milky Way

How to find Cygnus the Swan

...Once you’ve found Cygnus, you just need to look along its length
to find the hazy cloud behind it that is our galaxy, the Milky Way. The
Milky Way, notably, runs along the same axis as the long line of the
lowercase t or the body of the Swan.

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under
the shadow of Your wings

Psalm 36:7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore
the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.

Psalm 91:4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings
you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler



Ezekiel 1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in
the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among
the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened
and I saw visions of ELoHIM. 2 On the fifth day of the month, which
was in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, 3 the word of YHVH
came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of
the Chaldeans by the River Chebar; and the hand of was upon him YHVH there.

4 Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north,
a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all
around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of
the midst of the fire. 5 Also from within it came the likeness of four
living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness
of a man. 6 Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings.

7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the
soles of calves’ feet. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze.
8 The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and
each of the four had faces and wings. 9 Their wings touched one
another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one
went straight forward.

10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each
of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had
the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of
an eagle. 11 Thus were their faces. Their wings stretched upward; two
wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies.
12 And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit
wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went.

13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was
like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back
and forth among the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of
the fire went lightning. 14 And the living creatures ran back and forth,
in appearance like a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on
the earth beside each living creature with its four faces. 16 The
appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of
beryl, and all four had the same likeness. The appearance of their
workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. 17 When
they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not
turn aside when they went.

18 As for their rims, they were so high they were awesome; and their
rims were full of eyes, all around the four of them. 19 When the living
creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living
creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit
went; and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of
the living creatures was in the wheels.

21 When those went, these went; when those stood, these stood; and
when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up
together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the
wheels. 22 The likeness of the firmament above the heads of the
living creatures was like the color of an awesome crystal, stretched
out over their heads.

23 And under the firmament their wings spread out straight, one
toward another. Each one had two which covered one side, and each
one had two which covered the other side of the body. 24 When they
went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters,
like the voice of the Almighty, a tumult like the noise of an army; and
when they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 A voice came from
above the firmament that was over their heads; whenever they stood,
they let down their wings.

26 And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a
throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the
throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.
27 Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were,
the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and
from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the
appearance of fire with brightness all around. 28 Like the appearance
of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the
brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of
the glory of YHVH.

So when I saw it, I fell on my face,
and I heard a voice of One speaking.

Ezekiel’s ‘wheel within a wheel’

Isaiah 40:22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its
inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens
like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

Psalm 19:6 Its rising is from one end of heaven, And its circuit to the
other end; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

Job 22:14 Thick clouds cover Him, so that He cannot see, And He
walks above the circle of heaven.’

The ‘wheel within a wheel’ is the ecliptic and the mazzarot (zodiac).

Mazzaroth (Hebrew Transliteration: מַזָּרוֹת Mazzārōṯ, LXX Μαζουρωθ,
Mazourōth) is a Biblical Hebrew Word found in the Book of Job
(38:32) and literally meaning "constellations," according to 10th-
century biblical exegete Saadia Gaon, while others interpret the word
as Garland of Crowns, but its context is that of Astronomical
Constellations, and it is often interpreted as a term for the Zodiac or
the Constellations thereof. (Job 38:31–32). The similar word mazalot
(מַּזָּלוֹת) in 2 Kings 23:3–5 may be related.

Job 38:31 “Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,
Or loose the belt of Orion?
