Arcturus: Star of the Second Coming by Daniel Speck

From Chapter 1:

Revelation in the stars
Christ walks among the seven golden lamp stands and holds the seven stars in his right hand. Seven stars is of course a constellation. The seven golden lamp stands may be a constellation as well. If we look at a map of the Greek cities of the seven churches, the pattern they trace has a close resemblance to a particular constellation of familiar stars. We can compare them to the night sky to see where this might be.

The constellation of Bootes is very similar. Constellations, being symbolic, need only a vague resemblance to a figure or icon to represent it. In addition to representing the seven churches, Bootes traces the form of a 1st century oil lamp stand. The eight stars of Bootes also look like a fish, the symbol the early Church used for Christianity as we still do today. 

A closer look at Bootes reveals some fascinating similarities to Revelation 2:1, “He who walks among the seven lamp stands…” Arcturus is the bright alpha star of this constellation. It is also the brightest star in the northern hemisphere, and the 4th brightest overall in the heavens, but more importantly, it has an unusually fast proper motion. Proper motion is the term astronomers use to describe how some stars have moved over the centuries. Edmund Halley (1718) was the first astronomer to discover that stars move when he compared Arcturus’ position with more ancient star charts. Since the 1st century AD, Arcturus has moved 2 degrees in the sky toward the constellation Virgo (the width of two full moons). Only one other star, our closest neighbor, Alpha Sentari, has an apparent faster motion. You could say that Arcturus “walks” among the other stars of Bootes.

The other half of Revelation 2:1 “…and holds the seven stars in His right hand,” can be visualized when Bootes and Arcturus rise above the eastern horizon before sunrise in the fall. Another constellation, Corona Borealis, is at Arcturus’ right hand as it faces us. Corona Borealis is a strikingly beautiful constellation made up of seven bright stars usually described as a crown. They could also be seen as a cup or even a scythe.

The Head of Satan
So now we have a picture of Arcturus as it rises in the east. It “walks” among the seven stars of Bootes and has the seven stars of Corona Borealis at its right hand. As we watch it ascend, we notice another constellation just below it. This group of stars is called Serpens Caput, “The Serpent’s Head.” Most civilizations have imagined this as a snake with its long line of undulating stars and a triangular head. Serpens has also been called “The Head of Satan.” It is a perfect fit as it wriggles at the feet of Arcturus:
Genesis 3:15: “…(to the serpent) He will crush your head and you will strike his heel.”

The return of Christ will mean the fulfillment of this most ancient of all prophecies. 

From Chapter 9:

Mark of the Beast 
There are three labels for the Beast: the name of the Beast, the number of the Beast, and the mark of the Beast. Of these three we are clearly given only one, the number, which is the wellknown 666. This number refers to the satanic trinity: the Dragon, the Beast, and the Prophet, one six for each. Six is the number of imperfection or falling short of God’s perfect number, seven. This mark will have to be worn on the forehead or right hand and will be a symbol for three sixes. The graphic symbol for the number six is the pentagram. Three pentagrams should prove be the mark of the Beast.

The pentagram is an ancient symbol used in religion and the occult. It is also a graphic representation of man, with a head, two arms and two legs illustrated in its five points. The heart or torso of the pentagram is the sixth part. Revelation tells us that the number of the Beast “is a man’s number.” The pentagram by itself is simply a symbol for man. How this symbol is used determines if it takes on a sinister meaning or not. In witchcraft the pentangle is used with the “head” of the star pointed down, illustrating man worshiping Satan. When it has a circle around it, it represents the exclusion of God. When it is repeated three times, it takes the form of a trinity, replacing God with an unholy trio.

The Tripentagram Mark 
Three pentagrams may become trendy in pop culture, tattoos, and as religious and political symbols in the coming years, especially in the oneworld movement. Currency may begin to show up with three pentagrams. Also look for a world figure who uses it as the symbol of his movement the way Hitler used the swastika. There are institutions and governments that have already adopted this design, unaware of what it may really signify. The pentagram is the most widely used graphic on national flags.

There is a lot that has been said about a microchip implanted under the skin as being the mark of the Beast. This may well be used but by definition a mark appears on the skin, not under it. The mark will likely be just a simple tattoo or brand, easily made by anyone anywhere in the world. Some may try to hide it and wear it only on their right hand, but many will doubtless wear it proudly on their forehead. All credit cards, bank checks, and currency will have to carry the tripentagram mark to be accepted in the world economy. During the Tribulation no one will be allowed to buy or sell without wearing this permanent mark.

A Tripentagram in the stars? 
Finally, notice that head of the constellation Serpens Caput, the serpent’s head, is made up of a triangle of three bright stars. The Mark of the Beast may also be instituted as a triangle of stars.
