Isaiah Chapters 5 & 6 Star Chart: Clockwise from "them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink" (Sagittarius following wine drinking) until night, when "wine inflame them" (Cancer obviously agitated by drinking the solar wine) (5:11) and from when a seraph "flew ... unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar (Sagittarius's "bow" tongs hold the sun coal): And he laid it upon my (Milky Way) mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy (Milky Way) lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged" (6:6-7) till "he looked ... for righteousness, but behold a cry" (Cancer's red sun open mouth yell) (5:7) is 212°.
From 604 B.C. to July 586 B.C. is 18 years. Therefore, 18 years x 12 months per year is 216° months from Sagittarius to Cancer. But since the conquest did not take all twelve months of 586 B.C., we need to subtract 4° from 216, leaving 212° months from 604 B.C. to July 586 B.C.
In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it" (Dan. 1:1; cp. Jer. 25:1). This was 604 B.C. We don't know the month. "And I will wipe Jerusalem as one wipes a (Zodiac) dish, wiping it and turning it upside down" (2 Kings 21:13). Rotating more than 180° from Sagittarius to Cancer. "And Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon carried out thence all the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had said. And he carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valour, [even] ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths: none remained, save the poorest sort of the people of the land" (2 Kings 24:13-14).
On July 10, 586 B.C., the Babylonian forces of king Nebuchadnezzar broke through the northern wall of Jerusalem and it was only a matter of time.
Josephus records some of the gruesome details of the siege: "On the ninth day of the fourth month the famine was so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. Then the city was broken into, and all the men of war fled by night by way of the gate between the two walls beside the king’s garden, though the Chaldeans were all around the city. And they went by way of the Arabah. But the army of the Chaldeans pursued the king and overtook him in the plains of Jericho and all his army was scattered from him. Then they captured the king and brought him to the king of Babylon at Riblah, and he passed sentence on him. During this siege, Zedekiah and the remnants of his army broke out of Jerusalem and fled east toward Jericho, only to be captured and brought to Riblah where Nebuchadnezzar still maintained his headquarters. When he was come Nebuchadnezzar began to call him a wicked wretch and a covenant-breaker and one that had forgotten his former words, when he promised to keep the country for him. (Josephus. Antiquities 10:8:2). Zedekiah was forced to watch his sons be executed before his eyes were gouged out. He was given bronze fetters and led 700 miles to Babylon, the land of idolatry where he would die in prison. 12° are one year and 360° are 30 years.
A Vineyard That Produces Wild Grapes
5:1 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved (Judah) a song of my beloved touching his vineyard (black Zodiac Palestine). My wellbeloved (Judah) hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill (Milky Way hump) :
2 And he fenced it (with red radius lines and 360° marks), and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine (Green Milky Way), and built a tower in the midst of it (white Milky Way), and also made a winepress therein (Leo, Gemini, Ophiuchus and Taurus treading out the grapes in a rotational circle): and he looked that it should bring forth grapes (red stars), and it brought forth wild grapes (unnaturally red suns).
3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.
4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? (not righteous people but evil people -- red suns)
Abraham's eldest son Ishmael was called a WILD man (Gen. 16:12). Arabs are generally lawless. However Jacob was a PLAIN (Hebrew "tam") man (Gen. 25:27; KJV). A better translation of the Hebrew TAM is "TAME or quiet, able to exercise self-control." It is the opposite of WILD. In Isaiah 5:1-7 God planted the "choicest vine" in Palestine -- Israel. He uprooted the WILD gentile nations (Ps. 80:8). Yet even Israel brought forth "WILD grapes" (Isa. 5:2). Paul contrasted gentiles -- "a WILD olive tree" (Rom. 11:17) -- to Israel -- "a GOOD olive tree" (Rom. 11:17-24). Unrestrained emotions and undisciplined conduct are WILD. Israel (Americans and British) should be a restraining influence throughout the world. If they don't teach and practice it, who will?
5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof (square border), and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down (Milky Way wall) :
6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the (Milky Way) clouds that they rain no rain upon it. (black Zodiac)
7 For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold (red radius line) oppression (red sun in Sagittarius); for righteousness, but behold a cry (red sun in Cancer).
8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed (red radius lines in the shape of a house) alone in the midst of the earth!
9 In mine (solar) ears said the Lord of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.
10 Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.
11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow (red radius line) strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! (Cancer and Sagittarius drinking the solar wine)
12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands.
13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity (604 B.C. & 586 B.C.), because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.
14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure (red sun mouth in Cancer): and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
16 But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
17 Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.
18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with (red radius line) cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a (red radius line) cart rope:
19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink (red sun) wine, and men of strength to mingle (red sun) strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! (red sun in Cancer's mouth; red sun in Sagittarius' bow)
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust (red sun in Cancer): because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they (Babylonians) shall come with speed swiftly:
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows (red radius lines) bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind (red sun in Sagittarius):
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the (bloody sun) prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.
2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door (red radius lines?) moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke (Milky Way).
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips (Milky Way lips), and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes (red solar) have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar (Sagittarius's "bow" tongs hold the sun coal):
7 And he laid it upon my (Milky Way) mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy (Milky Way) lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not (solar red ears); and see ye indeed, but perceive not (solar red eyes).
10 Make the (solar) heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their (solar) eyes; lest they see with their (solar) eyes, and hear with their (solar) ears, and understand with their (solar) heart, and convert, and be healed.
11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
12 And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land (586 B.C.).
13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak (Cancer's Mulberry Tree), whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
