The “Bethlehem Star” of 2015 and surrounding events
In the last post, I showed how the Jupiter-Venus conjunction of November 13th 2017 coincided with a major earthquake that occurred in the Middle East with its epicenter in Iran. In 2015, the two planets also had a conjunction which occurred on the 30th of June of that year at the head of Leo, just like it happened in 3BC.
June 30th 2015 was also the initial deadline that had been set for the Iran nuclear deal to be reached. The deal was designed to reduce Iran’s ability to produce Uranium and Plutonium which are necessary to make nuclear weapons. In return for verifiably abiding by its commitments, Iran would receive relief from sanctions from the United Nations, European Union and United States. However Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly opposed the deal because according to him, Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would be largely left intact, and would still be able to make a nuclear bomb by cheating on the required inspections. He was also concerned about the “sunset clause” of the deal that lifted restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program after 2025. The Israeli Prime Minister therefore traveled to the US and made a speech to a joint session of the US congress on March 3rd of 2015 to make an appeal to the lawmakers not to pass the deal.
At sunset of March 4th of 2015 was the start of Purim. In his speech to congress, the Israeli Prime Minister said this about this Jewish festival, linking it to the current desire of Iran to destroy the Jewish state;
Tomorrow night, on the Jewish holiday of Purim, we’ll read the Book of Esther. We’ll read of a powerful Persian viceroy named Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jewish people some 2,500 years ago. But a courageous Jewish woman, Queen Esther, exposed the plot and gave for the Jewish people the right to defend themselves against their enemies. The plot was foiled. Our people were saved.

God predestined a sign in the heavens at the first deadline for the nuclear deal on June 30th, not only to signal the return of Christ but also to point us to the prophetic significance of what was transpiring. (June 30th 2015 passed without the deal being confirmed. Agreement on the deal was reached on 14th July, 2015). So in summary, so far we have 3 events and 2 signs involving Iran:
- The festival of Purim which started in ancient Persia, modern day Iran to commemorate Jewish salvation from annihilation.
- The June 30th 2015 Jupiter -Venus conjunction which happened at an important date for the Iran deal that year, which Israel saw as a pathway to technology to allow Jewish annihilation by Iran.
- The November 13th 2017 Jupiter-Venus conjunction which was occurring while a major earthquake with its epicenter in Iran struck, killing several hundred people and injuring thousands more.
A pattern involving death and Iran has clearly emerged and its connected to the Jupiter-Venus conjunctions of 2015 and 2017. God may be making strong emphasis about Iran in regards to a role they will play in these last days especially in connection with the nuclear deal and their desire to destroy the Jewish nation. Lets ask the Lord to continue to reveal more information about this as we watch and pray for the Middle East.
