The Celtic Cross & Being Ready for Jesus' Return

"For as the lightning comes forth from the east, and is seen even to the west, 
so will be the coming of the Son of Man."  Matthew 24:27

Our ancestors planned their churches and cemeteries based on Matthew 24:27 above.  They always wanted to ensure they were ready for Jesus' return.

In fact in all Christian cemeteries, people are buried with their feet pointed East so that they will be ready when Jesus comes from the East - basically the dead will be facing towards Jesus when he comes from the East. They wanted their loved ones to be ready since the dead in Christ will rise first.

"For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first." 1 Thes 4:14

Early Christian Churches were built so that the attendees came in the west door and then were seated facing a big window that faced East.  This is so that they would see Jesus coming, if HE were to return during the church service.

"Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord." 1 Thes 4:17

Our ancestors put Celtic Crosses on almost every burial site to ensure their loved ones would have proper navigation when Jesus returned.  They also put the cross on top of churches to also ensure proper navigation and to be able to tell the time of year.  A Celtic Cross placed towards the East, as shown above, tells you the time of year - when the sun is exactly in the middle it means the equinox is occurring.  When the sun is towards the left of the cross, it means it is summer time and towards the right would mean winter time.  The Celtic Cross was actually a navigation instrument that indicated cardinal directions plus the wheel in the middle actually made it a precise tool for measuring constellation alignments, equinoxes and various angles.  It is thought that the Celtic Cross was used to align the Great Pyramid of Giza to specific constellations.  

Jacob's staff was another instrument to measure alignments and angles such as constellations and equinoxes.  Their staffs and Celtic Cross allowed them to measure the heavens and know when planets and stars were going to be in alignment.

The Maji were very skilled at reading the constellations and the planet movements.  They tracked all the movements in the heavens since they knew the Mazzaroth was the Gospel in the Stars.  That is how they knew Jesus, their King, was going to be born - they saw various conjunctions occur in the sign of Leo that represented a new King would be born in the line of Judah.  They also knew that the signs would occur when Leo was in the East (see more about Leo in the East in the camp arrangement).

"Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him." Matthew 2:1-2

Our ancestors were so good at measuring angles they became know as the Anglo-Saxons. The word anglo and angle originates from the word angel.  You see both the Angels and the Anglo-Saxons were experts at measuring the angles of the heavens.

Today we do have astronomers that can measure the angles and planet movements in the heavens just like they did back in the biblical times, however, they now have computers and better telescopes that just makes their job easier.  We now have the time and course of each planet and many of the stars  in computer programs so we can anticipate equinoxes, eclipses and conjunctions years in advance.  Lets not forget though, that people like the Mayans, did calculate their calendar accurately all the way to the start of the age of Aquarius on December 21, 2012 without the advantage of a computer - it is really just about being good at math and having a tool like the Celtic Cross.
