Prophetic Heraldry Concerning
the Twelve (Zodiac) Tribes
49:1 And Jacob called his sons and said, “Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days:
2 “Gather together and hear, you sons of Jacob, And listen to Israel your father.
3 “Reuben, you are my firstborn, My might and the beginning of my strength, The excellency of dignity and the excellency of power.
4 Unstable as water (or "Poured forth as water" -- Aquarius), you shall not excel, Because you went up to your father’s bed (Virgo); Then you (red radius organ) defiled (or "profane") it. He went up to my couch.
5 “Simeon and Levi are brothers (Pisces); Instruments of cruelty (Andromeda's shackles and Pisces' bands; ) are in their dwelling place (or "slaying"). (Scribes and Pharisees crucified the Messiah)
6 Let not my soul enter their council; Let not my honor be united to their assembly; For in their anger they (Perseus) slew a man, And in their self-will they hamstrung an ox (the tendon behind the knee of Taurus and Aries)("they cut off the Prince" -- Shechem & Christ). The word here rendered "Prince", is by the Septuagint bull, and by the Vulgate wall. The alteration of a single vowel, in the Hebrew expressed by a single point, allows these variations; and certainly in the time of Jacob the points were not in use. Furthermore, a prediction of the slaying of the Messiah by his own people would not find favor with the Jewish mind. a point would be easily dropped if involving it.
7 Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce; And their wrath, for it is cruel! I will divide them in Jacob And scatter them in Israel (Pisces).
8 “Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your (paw) hand shall be on the (Hydra) neck of your enemies; Your father’s children shall bow down (rotate) before you (before Judah's royal Cepheus kings).
9 Judah is a lion’s whelp (Leo Minor); From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion (Leo); And as a lion (Argo Lionhead), who shall rouse him?
10 The (red radius rod) scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his (front and hind) feet, Until (Cross = Argo masthead) Shiloh (John 14:27; Eph. 2:14) comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
11 Binding (red radius cord) his donkey (Ursa Major) to the (Hydra) vine, And his donkey’s colt (Ursa Minor) to the choice (Hydra) vine, He washed his garments in (red radius line) wine, And his clothes in the (red radius) blood of grapes (washed in Christ's blood).
12 His eyes are darker than (sparkle from) wine, And his (lunar crescent) teeth whiter than milk.
13 “Zebulun shall dwell by the haven of the sea (Cancer); He shall become a haven for ships (Argo) (or "affliction"), And his border shall adjoin Sidon ("and his side a stronghold").
14 “Issachar is a strong donkey (Aries), Lying down (Aries) between two burdens (or "sheepfolds" -- the word is so rendered in Judges 5:14);
15 He saw that rest was good, And that the land was pleasant;
He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden, And became a band of slaves (Pisces band & Andromeda).
16 “Dan shall judge his people As one of the tribes of Israel (or "he Messiah shall judge").
17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, A viper by the (Ecliptic sun's) path (Serpens), That bites the (Pegasus) horse’s heels So that its (Ophiuchus) rider shall fall backward.
18 I have waited for your salvation, O Lord!
The Danes did not accept Christianity until they invaded England, and then they readily adopted it (see Green's "History of the English People).
19 “Gad, a troop (Centaur) shall tramp upon ("overcome") ("pierce") him (Victim), But he shall triumph (overcome) at last (or "be pierced in the heel" -- Crux). A Roman soldier pierced Christ in the side. "At last" is the same word as "heel" (see Gen. 3:15).
20 “Bread (Virgo's wheat) from Asher shall be rich, And he shall yield (red radius necklace) royal dainties (or "give the sweet influences of a king")."Royal dainties" is in Job rendered "sweet influences" (All rabbis agree this means Messiah the King)
"Let Asher be blessed with children (Coma); let him be acceptable to his brethren, and let him dip his (Virgo) foot in (red radius) (solar or lunar) oil" (Deut. 33:24).
21 “Naphtali is a deer let loose (Capricorn); He uses beautiful (Aquila red radius) words. "Hind" is of the neuter or feminine gender, as is the "desire" of nations, and "wisdom" in Proverbs 8, where substituting "it" for "she" would remove difficulties. The Messiah was to take human nature, the nature equally of man and woman. The Hebrew has but two genders, masculine and all that is not masculine. Thus feminine and neuter are both one.
"O Naphtali, satisfied with favour, and full with the blessing of the Lord (Cornucopia): possess thou the west and the south" (Deut. 33:23).
22 “Joseph is a (green Milky Way) fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a (lunar crescent) well; His (Serpens, Drago, 3-headed snake) branches run over the (red radius) wall.
23 The (Sagittarius) archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him (Sagitta) and hated him.
24 But his bow remained in strength (Sagittarius), And the arms (red radius staff weapons and bow and arrow) of his hands were made strong
By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel) (lunar Bethel Stone),
25 By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With (solar golden) blessings of heaven above, (solar golden) Blessings of the deep that lies beneath (Eridanus beneath Taurus), Blessings of the (solar golden) breasts and of the (solar golden) womb.
26 The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of (Sagittarius) Joseph,
And on the (solar) crown of the head of him who was separate (or "Nazirite among his brethren" -- King Messiah [Matt. 2:3; Deut. 33:16]; not Joseph who threw himself on the body of his dead father. A Nazirite might not touch a dead body.) from his brothers).
27 “Benjamin is a ravenous wolf (Big Dog or Canis Major); In the morning (first coming) he shall devour the prey (as in Job 30:23), And at night (second coming) he shall divide the spoil (Gemini -- Son of My Sorrow; Son of My Joy).”
28 All these are the twelve tribes of Israel, and this is what their father spoke to them. And he blessed them; he blessed each one according to his own blessing.
29 Then he charged them and said to them: “I am to be gathered to my people; bury me with my fathers in the (lunar) cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite,
30 in the cave that is in the (red radius line) field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field of Ephron the Hittite as a possession for a burial place.
31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife (Cepheus and Cassiopeia), there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife (Castor and Pollux), and there I buried Leah (Virgo).
32 The field and the cave that is there were purchased from the (Gemini) sons of Heth.”
33 And when Jacob (Aquarius) had finished commanding his sons, he drew his feet up into the bed and breathed his last, and was gathered to his people.
