Revelation 12, Get Ready
 
 
NOTE>>> Before I get into today's commentary, I want to say THANK YOU to all who have used the donate button to toss us a few dollars now and then. I've never had an advertisement in these letters in over 22 years, and the cost of sending thousands and thousands of letters could be offset by using ad's. But instead I've refused to do that.  So to any and all of you who've pitched in to keep these letters coming, I humbly thank you.  It means a lot.

They say you shouldn't talk about politics or Religion because it starts so much bickering. Well, I like bickering. Especially when it comes to both!  So today I want to mention some things that are coming our way starting later this month, that "could" be some form of biblical signs for our age.
 
Some people think this will be the beginning of a 'great shaking". A Massive upheaval of the worlds systems. Others have a milder approach. I personally won't make any predictions about the outcome, I'm simply going to put some dots together for you, and you can think about this for yourself.
 
Oh, and just before we get started, in case you don't "know" me, do I believe in God? Absolutely. I don't understand how anyone can look at this planet, and not believe in a supreme being having created it.  We can all argue about whether he's an old man with a beard, or if he is really "photon's" of light, but to imagine "he' doesn't exist is beyond me.
 
So what am I getting at here? Well the first part hits on August  21st. We're going to experience a total solar eclipse. Now that in itself is pretty neat as we haven't had one since 1918. This one will take a similar path, coming into view in the Northwest, and the totality of the sun's black out will travel SouthEast from there. Figure on it coming visible in Oregon, and "exiting" out South Carolina.
 
Okay, so while it's rare, is there anything terribly interesting about that?  Well I think this is interesting. The "totality" of the sun's visible blackout will hit the US at 17:16 Universal time.  Over in Jerusalem, they have to add 2 hours to get to their normal standard time.  So, 17:16 becomes 19:16.  For those of you who understand "Military" or 24 hour time, 19:16 would be 7:16 pm.  Guess what happens in Jerusalem at 7:16 on August 21?  That's the exact minute of sunset.
 
The sun will "go dark" at the same minute, both in upper US, and in Israel. Thousands and thousands of miles apart. Does it mean anything? Maybe. Maybe not. But I'm not terribly into coincidence.
 
But it's September 23 that has most of the people really wondering if we are about to see a sign in the sky, that was foretold two thousand years ago in the Book of Revelation.  So let's see what that's all about.
 
In Revelation 12  we read the following:
12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
 
Well, on September 23, all the pieces of that verse come together in the constellation Virgo. The sun is in place, the moon  at her feet, above her head the twinkling of 9 stars and 3 planets. What about being pregnant? Well the planet Jupiter entered her loins area in late November, and is expected to exit ( give birth?)  on September 9th.
 
The last time that exact set up could have been seen by human eyes was 5,932 years ago.  Then we notice that it says a "great sign" appeared in Heaven. I believe that's the first time in the book that "great sign" is mentioned.
 
So we've got a total solar eclipse coming, and then a month later we have this almost perfect alignment between Revelations 12, and what's happening in the sky. Now some people would say that we're talking about astrology and that's evil, and blah blah blah. No. God himself said many times in the Bible that the stars are there for a reason.
 
Consider this:  Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
 
Okay so he says they're up there for signs. But consider this one, because it makes you ask a question:

Job 38:31
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
 
The Pleiades is a constellation folks. Here's God asking Job if Job can "bind" the sweet influence of Pleiades. What is that sweet influence? There has to be one. So keeping an eye on the heavens and where the constellations are, is NOT sorcery or evil or anything else.
 
Okay, let's not get off track. Everything seems to fit so far, so is there anything else that makes this particular "sign" even more interesting? Maybe.
 
Back in March 2004, the  European space agency launched the  Rosetta space probe to rendezvous with comet 67P. This hunk of space debris, seemed interesting to the scientists and they sent the probe to explore it. On September 10th of 2014 Rosetta entered 67P's orbit and on November 12, 2014 Rosetta sent down a "lander probe" named Philae.
 
Along with some great scientific data and some incredible photo's, what's that got to do with anything? Well it just so happens that on September 23, 67P will be in conjunction with the moon, passing by the foot of Virgo.
 
I am not saying that this is the beginning of anything. I'm saying that the numbers check out, the alignment checks out, and the timing couldn't possibly be any more coincidental than to have a comet we've explored, actually enter the picture on the very same day.
 
There are however a LOT of people that think these two events are signaling the "great shaking" of Gods power on a corrupt world and all sorts of things are going to break loose in the coming months.
 
One thing I have said many many times is that there is going to be a "reset" of the entire global economic system, including the fall/replacement of the US dollar as the Reserve currency. Is September 23 the sign of Revelations 12, and  the start of the world system about to go into shock?  I don't know. But I do find it fascinating to ponder.
 
One thing is for sure, on August 21 millions of people will be watching our eclipse, and then on September 23, hundreds of thousands will have their telescopes pointed at Virgo, catching a glimpse of a picture, a picture that might have been talked about 2,000 years ago.  I'll probably do both.
 
The Market:
 
It's things like Friday that make me want to buy more gold and silver. See, Friday was the non farm payroll report. When it hit, the headline said that we had created 209,000 new jobs last month. The Talking heads on TV were giddy, saying it's a great number and blah blah blah.
 
Well here's the skinny on it all. The BLS injected 158K jobs into the report via their "birth/Death" model.  Once again for anyone that doesn't know what that is, the BLS says "for every company that shuts down and lays off, some of those laid off go out and open a business. Then they hire people".  So, with NO proof if these jobs, no tax receipts, etc, they just "guess" each month at how many that is. This month they say 158K magically appeared. Yeah. Right.
 
But worse and worse by a long shot was the composition of the jobs. In July 393,000 part time jobs were added, offset by a drop of 54,000 full-time workers. Now let me ask you something. With the DOW at 22K, with Price to sales, price to book, price to earnings at nosebleed levels, are you going to tell me that 400K "gig jobs" are supportive of such a strong market? PLEASE.
 
Once again we see that this market is NOTHING about the real economy and everything about multiple Central banks running QE ponzi schemes. 
 
It's reports like that, that tends to make me want to buy another roll of Silver Eagles. I have to think that one day, all this lunacy is going to come to an end. How and when I do NOT know.
 
In any event, we had a good week trading the equities market, as the insane push higher and higher continues. Sure it's scary as hell buying overpriced stocks that have no business being "up here", but what else can we do? We can't sit idle and let it continue running without participating. So, we tag along.
 
So, Friday the market ended at an all time high again. Yawn. It's been doing so for so long, that it's not headline material any more. It just is what it is.  The DOW gained another 66, the S&P gained 4. It looks tired, contrived, desperate...but, up is indeed up.
 
We're riding MMM, UPS and HON to nice gains. If they want to keep this moving higher, we'll add another name to the short term holds.  Crazy? Yes. And history tells us that one day we'll buy another trade and that will mark a top and we'll lose a little money. That's the way it has to work, no one except the corrupt Central Bankers know the time this all ends. So, we lean long, keep our fingers crossed, try and find great chart set ups, and squeeze what we can out of this.  Good luck all.
