Revelation 13: The May 5, 2000 Planetary Alignment - A sign of the Antichrist?
On May 5, 2000 there was an unusual alignment of the sun,
moon, and the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and
Saturn within the same area of the sky, roughly in a line,
although actually spread over 25 degrees.
(A similar planetary grouping in April and May 2002 is discussed on this
Since in May 2000, the
planets closest to the earth were lined up in a row with the
sun and moon, some writers were concerned that this
increased gravitational stress on earth. Since in the
second half of 1999 there had been increased numbers of
earthquakes around the world (such as in Taiwan and Mexico
in September 1999, Southern California in October 1999),
some writers were concerned that there could be some major
earthquakes worldwide in May 2000 from this increased
gravitational stress on earth. It had been proposed by
some writers that there could even be a polar shift (where
the earth's poles move either because the earth itself
shifts its axis, or the earth's crust slides over the core,
because of the extra weight of the South pole ice cap
making the earth unstable). Obviously a polar shift would
be tremendously destructive to mankind, since tremendously
high winds and great earthquakes will result. This polar
shift idea was proposed by Hugh Auchincloss Brown, and the
idea was supported by Edgar Cayce's prophecies. But polar shift was
unlikely, and did not occur, fortunately.
It is true that there have been similar planetary
alignments in the past, the last one being on Feb. 6, 1962.
It is also interesting that this alignment of planets on
5/5/2000 was also a powerful astrological pattern, which
followed the unusual grand Cross Astrology pattern of August
18, 1999, of the planets in an astrological cross shape, a
week after the solar eclipse of August 11 1999. The
pattern of August 1999 was the most unusual Astrology
pattern of the last 2000 years, and could be connected with
the rise to power of the Antichrist, as described in the
Bible's Book of
Revelation. The Antichrist is a Satanic
imitation of Christ, who is expected to work miracles
during the 7 year period before the Battle of Armageddon.
He will appear to be a good man, and he will appear to have
answers for the problems of the world. There are supposed
to be wars, diseases, great earthquakes, and weather
changes during the End Times period when the Antichrist
appears. I think the 5/5/2000 pattern relates to the rise
to power of the Antichrist, possibly he was elected in
Russia in the March 2000 Russian Presidential elections.
Note that President Putin was inaugurated as President of
Russia (see this page for more on
Putin, possible Antichrist)
on May 7, 2000, 2 days after the 5/5/2000 planet alignment.
Note that President
Putin became Prime Minister of Russia
on August 9, 1999, near the time of the other Millennium
planetary pattern, the August 11 1999 solar eclipse over
Europe and the August 18 1999 Grand Cross Astrology pattern
of the planets in a cross shape. And note that President
Putin became acting President of Russia as the new
millennium began on Dec. 31, 1999. So the
significance of 5/5/2000 relates to the rise to power of
the Antichrist in Russia, as Russia's new President. But
he will seem to be a good man, he will seem to be a
peacemaker, he will appear to work miracles, because Satan
comes as an Angel of Light. But he will lead us down the
path to Armageddon. THAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF 5/5/2000: 2 DAYS
LATER ON MAY 7, 2000 THE INAUGURATION OF THE ANTICHRIST
IN RUSSIA -- THIS MAY TURN OUT TO BE A CRITICAL EVENT IN WORLD HISTORY!
Also, some Biblical Book of Revelation passages support the idea,
of great earthquakes occurring in the near future, if we entered the "End
Times" with year 2000:
Revelation 6:12 (King James Version): "and I beheld when he
had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great
earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair,
and the moon became as blood"
Revelation 16:18: "...and there was a great earthquake,
such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an
earthquake and so great."
Also, note that April 2000 was a 666 day interval time, as discussed in the
666 day intervals
Some would argue that the planets other than the sun and
moon have little gravitational force on the earth, and
therefore increased earthquakes or a polar shift were
unlikely to occur in May 2000. But another possibility is
increased solar flares. Note that there is a passage in Revelation
which appears to imply an increase in solar activity which
scorches the earth with great heat:
16:8,9: "And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the
sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
And men were scorched with great heat..."
So could an increase in the sun's intensity actually cook
the earth? Yes, that is possible, since it is thought that
the sun's energy output varies, and at times it has
decreased. Possibly a great solar storm might cause a
temporary increase in the sun's energy output, actually
roasting the earth for a while. And there was a giant solar flare on Oct. 28, 2003, the fourth largest ever recorded, and on November 4 2003 the largest ever seen. We will have to see if this indicates more giant solar flares to come in 2011-2012, perhaps the sun is entering a period of increased solar activity. On the calendar page I also discuss how a time period associated with the Antichrist began on Nov. 4 2003, with the largest flare in history and Putin the Antichrist in Rome. But actually, the sun has been quiet with few sunspots beginning in 2007, possibly something is going on inside the sun such as a Black Hole in its core. It is possible that the CERN LHC particle accelerator in France could create a
Black Hole that goes to the center of the earth and grows there, or it could go to the center of the sun and grow there, affecting the sun's energy ouput.
