Eclipse Part 5: Triggering in the Earth, Operation Serpent Deity NASA, and a Tie to National Declarations

The 'Eclipse Crossroads' 
Another effect of all this is that the 2017 and 2024 paths cross, creating an "Eclipse Crossroads" area of about 9,000 square miles (14,500 square km) in parts of southeastern Missouri, southern Illinois, and western Kentucky that will soon experience a second totality in less than seven years.

The center lines cross in Makanda, Illinois, close to Carbondale. Also in the lucky quadrant are Paducah, Kentucky, Cape Girardeau, and Farmington, Missouri. Texas Hill Country, meanwhile, has a 14,000 square miles (36,000 square km) "Eclipse Crossroads" region of its own — centered on Vanderpool — where a "ring of fire" annular solar eclipse on October 14 was merely a warm-up for the totality to come.

In Old Hebrew script, the letter tav was written as a cross mark. This stood erect like what we ordinarily mean by a "cross," or it tilted sideways like an X.
Origins of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet (Part 22, Tav) – Ivri Anochi
It states in the Talmud16 that the letter tav represents the word אמת, emes, meaning truth. The reason emes is represented by its last letter (tav) and not its first (alef) is that the essence of truth is determined at the end of a journey or passage, not at the beginning. Often when we begin something, the truth of the matter does not seem attractive. Only upon seeing the outcome do we appreciate that the path of emes was the only way to travel.

Also, the same year the poles on the sun, the magnetic poles reverse, and there is a full solar eclipse, the last time these two events happened was approx 1989-1990.
On March 7, 1989, there was a partial solar eclipse over North America.

The Sun's Poles Are About to Flip

“While this is not a catastrophic event, the reversal will have effects, said solar physicist Todd Hoeksema, the director of Stanford University’s Wilcox Solar Observatory, who monitors the Sun’s polar magnetic fields. “This change will have ripple effects throughout the Solar System,” he said.

What happened in 1989
1989 was a turning point in political history with the "Revolutions of 1989" which ended communism in the Eastern Bloc of Europe, starting in Poland and Hungary, with experiments in power-sharing coming to a head with the opening of the Berlin Wall in November, the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia and the overthrow of the communist dictatorship in Romania in December; the movement ended in December 1991 with the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Revolutions against communist governments in Eastern Europe mainly succeeded, but the year also saw the suppression by the Chinese government of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing.

January 20, 1989, George W Bush is sworn in as the 41st president.

Persian Gulf War
(August 2, 1990)
The Persian Gulf War began as Iraq invaded neighboring Kuwait. An international force, led by the U.S., is later assembled, and it defeats Iraq the following year.


Why is CERN being reactivated on April 8, the same day as the infamous eclipse? Supposedly, the particle collider can accelerate protons to a rate that’s only 7 mph slower than the speed of light, resulting in 11,000 trips around its ring per second. After CERN started its Awake experiment in 2016, conspiracy theorists were convinced CERN was opening portals in the sky when photos taken near the facility revealed strange electromagnetic storms above it.


So it looks like CERN will be starting back up. Guess what day? April 8. The same day as the solar eclipse.


CERN to test world's most powerful particle accelerator during April's solar eclipse to search for 'invisible' matter that secretly powers our universe

Theories have suggested there are 17 different particle groups and the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN, confirmed the existence of one using its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012.

Now, the team has restarted the LHC after a two-year hibernation with hopes of unraveling more mysterious - specifically dark matter.
Scientists began preliminary tests by sending billions of protons around the LHC's ring of superconducting magnets to boost their energy and ensure the $4 billion machine was in working condition.

And next month, CERN will shoot them down a 17-mile-long tunnel at nearly the speed of light to recreate conditions a second after the Big Bang.

Genesis 1:1-5 
In the beginning, God ([a]Elohim) [b]created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was [c]formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep [primeval ocean that covered the unformed earth]. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, [d]“Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good (pleasing, useful) and [e]He affirmed and sustained it; and God separated the light [distinguishing it] from the darkness. 5 And God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was [f]evening and there was [g]morning, one day.

The Lord formed it from NOTHING, they are attempting a counterfeit to form what God formed using something already built!

Genesis 1:2 The earth was without form, void.
What does this mean, it means empty, however, a more accurate translation would be “unformed and unfilled.”

Darkness was upon the face of the deep so no light had been created yet, so the earth was dark, unformed, and unfilled.

Elohim Bara- God Created.

Bara….Is it not interesting then that the kingdom of darkness would use a man named Barak to come in and with charisma and alluring words, lie about what was going to be created and unleashed in the United States….That is no accident.

But even the world’s biggest science experiment can be stopped by weasels.

Yes, weasels. In April 2016, the Large Hadron Collider lost power after a nefarious rodent chewed through electrical wiring. This followed an unfortunate incident in 2009 when a bird dropped a bit of baguette onto electrical equipment and caused a power outage. The mightiest human accomplishments can face the most mundane challenges.

It was April 29th the last day of Passover a weasel took out the Hadron Collider….

A Weasel is a Rodent.

The Higgs Boson isn’t the God particle. It’s the God-damn particle.

Before the discovery of the Higgs on July 4, 2012, physicists had a theory but no proof to explain how elementary particles like electrons and quarks got their mass. Such was the frustration that Leon Lederman, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, wanted to title his 1993 book on the subject The Goddamn Particle: If the Universe is the Answer, What is the Question?

What will stop it when they try this time on the eclipse?!

Let me show you CERN'S Logo.

CERN'S logo, yes I am aware of the 6 6 6, however, it also resembles an eclipse.

There are actually 4 6s in the CERN logo.

What also has to do with 4 6s?

April 8, 2024 eclipse is 6 years, 6 months, 6 weeks, and 6 days since the 2017 eclipse-
Now the Holy of holies which is pitch black, where the light of God comes in with the blackness, has something to do with this.

Entry into the Holy of Holies was forbidden by God, except for once a year, when the High Priest was allowed into it on the Day of Atonement to make atonement for the sins of the people (Lev Ch. 16). God warned that anyone who entered at any other time would be killed (Lev 16:2,13).

According to the Bible, the Holy of Holies was covered by a veil,[8] and no one was allowed to enter except the High Priest, and even he would only enter once a year on Yom Kippur,
It’s a wormhole.

The Holy of Holies is pitch black.

Cern is trying to recreate the Holy of Holies.

2nd Passover begins May 21st  for those who were unclean and could not partake of the first Passover, 1 month after the first Passover.

Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three [of them]; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.


The constellation of the fish, known as Pisces, comes into line with the solar eclipse.

Why NASA Will Fire Three Rockets At The Solar Eclipse
Operation Serpent Deity
The space agency’s project, Atmospheric Perturbations Around The Eclipse Path, will investigate how that drop in sunlight and temperature affects Earth’s upper atmosphere. APEP is named after the serpent deity from ancient Egyptian mythology, the nemesis of the sun deity Ra, according to NASA.

NASA’s suborbital rockets won’t launch into totality. Instead, they’ll go from Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia, from where 81% of the sun will be blocked by the moon. That moment will happen at 15:33 EST, though the eclipse will take part between 14:06 and 16:33.

On Saturday, October 14 at 10:00 a.m., 10:35 a.m. and 11:10 a.m. MT, the same three rockets were launched into the moon’s shadow during another partial solar eclipse. They launched from White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, where a 90% partial solar eclipse took place, reaching altitudes of 216 miles, 219 miles, and 218 miles.

So the last eclipse on October 14 2023, annular, they fired these rockets named Ra, Operation Serpent Deity, from New Mexico, and now the same operation during the full solar eclipse from Virginia.

In Des Moines, New Mexico they happen to have this.
Originally an ancient and cultural symbol in Hinduism and by American Indians, it was adopted as a horrific sign of antisemitism by Nazi Germany.

Some of the prehistoric pottery of North America features images of swastikas. The spiritual being of Hopi Kachinas often depicts a swastika on each side of its head. For the Hopi, the center was the heart of the symbol. The Zuni Pueblo Indians use a six-stem swastika that includes the zenith, nadir, and the cardinal points.

Virginia happens to have more Confederate statues than any other state.

Confederate being tied to the Civil War.

Now the rockets being launched during the eclipse are named Ra after that false egyptian sun god.

Ra was the ancient Egyptian deity of the Sun. By the Fifth Dynasty, in the 25th and 24th centuries BC, he had become one of the most important gods in ancient Egyptian religion, identified primarily with the noon-day sun. Ra ruled in all parts of the created world: the sky, the Earth, and the underworld.[5] He was believed to have ruled as the first pharaoh of Ancient Egypt.[6][7] He was the god of the sun, order, kings, and the sky.

Ra, the god of the sun, kings, and sky was also the ruler of the Egyptian pantheon of gods and revered as the creator of all things and the bringer of life.

It was believed that Ra’s falcon head granted him the ability to observe and oversee everything happening on the earth, ensuring order and maintaining balance.

The python spirit is a spirit of deceit, lying, and heavy spiritual tyranny. The spirit also gives individuals the ability to use divination, fortune-telling, and non-God visions.

So...The Spirit of Pythos is the gatekeeper to the spirit of witchcraft and divination, even sorcery.

Isaiah 14:29-31
Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you,
Because the rod that struck you is broken;
For from the serpent’s root a viper will come out,
And its fruit will be a flying serpent.
30 “[o]Those who are most helpless will eat,
And the needy will lie down in security;
I will [p]destroy your root with famine,
And it will kill off your survivors.
31 “Wail, O gate; cry, O city;
[q]Melt away, O Philistia, all of you;
For smoke comes from the north,
And there is no straggler in his ranks.
This spirit has very much gotten into the church with the deceptive fruit of wokeism, and enticed the church to take a bite, constricting its ability to operate in the true power of God, and a significant part of the church has partaken.

The spirit of deception is also seen in the story of Eve’s temptation in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-5). The serpent, a symbol of the python spirit, cunningly deceived Eve into questioning God’s command and eating the forbidden fruit. This resulted in sin entering the world and the subsequent separation of humanity from God. To combat the spirit of deception, believers must be grounded in the truth of God’s Word and remain vigilant against the lies of the enemy.

November 20, 2023
A Spirit of Control

The python spirit is known for its desire to control and manipulate others, wanting to attempt to constrict and destroy every aspect of their lives. Jesus warns against such control in Matthew 20:25-26 (NKJV): “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.”

We see the effects of this spirit in the nation, in the White House, in the court system right now as Pythos has wrapped itself around the scales of justice and the judges it has deceptively enticed to pervert justice and tamper with its scales.

Twitter changed its name to X around July 25, 2023.

The 2017 eclipse path and 2024 eclipse path make an X over the United States.

A month later in late August 2023…

Python and Excel join forces and do this big release.

What is Python in Excel?

Python in Excel brings the power of Python analytics into Excel. Use it to process data in Excel with Python code. You type Python directly into a cell, the Python calculations run in the Microsoft cloud, and your results are returned to the worksheet.

Python in Excel is available in Excel for Windows.

Python is available for Windows….Just think about that statement for a moment.

They will not speed up this clock, they will not skip ahead, there were secret plans to destroy this country and you have backward rainbow groups, working with, secret orders, working with the gates of this world, working with the judges of the land to the highest court to alter the country’s laws, the country spiritually, the family, the mind, to place their UTOPIA as the ruling body, The Lord thy God has HIS own time clock, HIS timetable, HIS WILL, and HE SITS ON THE THRONE and there is going to be some shaking, breaking and bending as the Lord pushes back and makes sobering statements through HIS action to highlight the unholiest, blasphemous, perverse, and corrupt actions.

And says the Lord of Hosts for whom the bell tolls, watch that area says the Lord.


The Bell Is Set to Toll on the Transgender Movement.

5 days later….
On Easter (resurrection) Sunday 2024


On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives.  

EASTER March 31, 2024
What is hidden in the word Easter that applies to all of this?

SEE: Discern or deduce mentally after reflection or from information; understand.

STEER: (of a person) Guide or control the movement of (a vehicle, vessel, or aircraft), for example by turning a wheel or operating a rudder.

Male cattle, A bull. Counterpart to Ishtar Baal the bull.

"He steered the boat slowly toward the busy quay"

SEAT: Arrange for (someone) to sit somewhere.

Aster: Aster is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin, meaning “star
one that is inferior or not genuine”

TARES: An injurious weed resembling wheat when young (Matt. 13:24–30).

RAT: that resembles a large mouse, typically having a pointed snout and a long, sparsely haired tail. Some kinds have become cosmopolitan and are sometimes responsible for transmitting diseases.

Desert one's party, side, or cause.

STAR. The sun is a star.

• Ra: a sun god of Heliopolis, a universal creator worshiped throughout Egypt (typically represented as a hawk-headed man bearing on his head the solar disk and the uraeus).

Tease: Make fun of or attempt to provoke.

Provoke: Stimulate or incite (someone) to do or feel something, especially by arousing anger in them.

Tree: Cursed is he who is hung on a tree

Galatians 3:1-3: O you foolish and thoughtless and superficial Galatians, who has bewitched you [that you would act like this], to whom—right before your very eyes—Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified [in the gospel message]? 2 This is all I want to ask of you: did you receive the [Holy] Spirit as the result of obeying [the requirements of] the Law, or was it the result of hearing [the message of salvation and] with faith [believing it]? 3 Are you so foolish and senseless? Having begun [your new life by faith] with the Spirit, are you now being perfected and reaching spiritual maturity by the flesh [that is, by your own works and efforts to keep the Law]?

Galatians 3:13-14: 13 Christ purchased our freedom and redeemed us from the curse of the Law and its condemnation by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs [crucified] on a tree (cross)”— 14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might also come to the Gentiles, so that we would all receive [the realization of] the promise of the [Holy] Spirit through faith.

Ephesians 2:1-6: And you [He made alive when you] were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you once walked. You were following the ways of this world [influenced by this present age], in accordance with the prince of the power of the air (Satan), the spirit who is now at work in the disobedient [the unbelieving, who fight against the purposes of God]. 3 Among these [unbelievers] we all once lived in the passions of our flesh [our behavior governed by the sinful self], indulging the desires of [a]human nature [without the Holy Spirit] and [the impulses] of the [sinful] mind. We were, by nature, children [under the sentence] of [God’s] wrath, just like the rest [of mankind]. 4 But God, being [so very] rich in mercy, because of His great and wonderful love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of our sins, He made us [spiritually] alive together with Christ (for by His grace—His undeserved favor and mercy—you have been saved from God’s judgment). 6 And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus,

How does what the White House did, tie to the eclipse, Nineveh, Ishtar, Ra, Egypt, and Easter, and this 39 day window we are into Passover?

Ishtar's symbols were the lion, the morning star, and eight or sixteen-pointed stars—again, symbols of power. The word Easter does not appear to be derived from Ishtar but from the German Eostre, the goddess of the dawn—a bringer of light. English and German are in the minority of languages that use a form of the word Easter to mark the holiday.
What brings the light? Well, the sun for one thing. During the eclipse NASA is launching Operation Serpent Deity, launching 3 rockets named after the Egyptian sun god Ra during the April 8th full solar eclipse, there was an eclipse in Egypt for 3 days as one of the 10 plagues brought on Egypt in Exodus. The eclipse is April 8th which is Nisan 1 is passing over more than 8 cities named Nineveh and will be visible as well from Jonah Texas. Nineveh is where the Lord told Jonah to go and prophesy judgment over them. He refused, was swallowed by great fish, the constellation of the fish is aligning with this eclipse, Jonah was spit back out by this great fish and went to Nineveh to declare judgment.

Jonah 3:4  Then on the first day’s walk, Jonah [b]began to go through the city, and he called out and said, “Forty days more [remain] and [then] Nineveh will be overthrown!”
Now why…Nineveh was the main hub of the temple of Ishtar where they were sacrificing children and committing perversions and deviations in the temple from the Norm. In face to  an inscription found by Woolley at Alalakh in Southern Turkey contains a ripping curse:

"... may the god Hadad dash him into pieces with the weapon which is in his hand; may Hebat-Ishtar shatter his spear; may Ishtar deliver him into the hands of those who pursue him; may Ishtar... impress feminine parts into his male parts."

I assume that last bit means "May Ishtar turn him into a woman". As we know from the hymn "The great-hearted mistress", turning men into women and women into men is one of Inanna's mes.

Alalakh was founded by the Amorites (in the territory of present-day Turkey).

The Amorites occupied Nineveh and added to the temple, leaving behind inscriptions recording other construction projects which were later demolished.
The temple of Ishtar’s main hub was Nineveh and as part of their ceremonies the men would dress up as women, and you think transgenderism is new, in ceremonies and permit same-sex activities.

Ra is connected to this as Ishtar's other name is Isis.

In this tale, Isis forms a clay snake with spittle dribbled by the aging sun god, the creator Ra. When the snake bites Ra, only Isis can save him, but she does this only when Ra reveals his secret name to her.
So then March 31st on White House.gov on Easter transgender visibility day is proclaimed.
Transgender dressing up as the opposite sex just like at the temple in Nineveh.

The word Easter does not appear to be derived from Ishtar but from the German Eostre, the goddess of the dawn—a bringer of light.

Light bearer, who comes as an angel of light? Satan himself, who was that in Egypt? Ra…
The dueling day where Christ’s resurrection is celebrated and  Easter eggs and bunnies are everywhere.
They have now given this ancient spirit that very much influenced Nineveh, its own day, Nineveh, where God pronounced total destruction on them.

Now Egypt…King Tutankhamun! Yep, King! King Tut reigned from (approximately) 1336-1327.
BCE. The famous mummy exhibit that’s been displayed all over the world. He ordered the Hebrew baby boys murdered, executed, and drowned in the Nile.
HW Pick: The Discovery Of King TUT, The Bling King

We also know that the last plague fell either in late March or early April because that is the time of the Jewish Passover.

The Last Plague..When was this proclamation made? March 31, 2024, late March.

9.28.23 Dream
I saw Andy Stanley's face before me, he was involved in something that was disturbing.
He and others were saying about putting a rabbit in a box and killing it, that it had to be done once a year to keep certain individuals happy. The box was a darker gray wood color and they were going to put the rabbit in it to cover the top and then run a knife through.
It was a darker gray rabbit, and Dog the Bounty Hunter in the dream was telling me what they were going to do to that rabbit (now he represents the law in a way, he also loves animals). I started pleading not to do this, that this is wrong.

Rabbits are prey animals, they multiply fast, and they are used in lab experiments.
They are experimental.

The rabbit was representing Easter.

Depopulation, is what was done in secret and released to depopulate the earth (because rabbits multiply so fast).

However, rabbits are used in labs, experimental.

Representing the hormonal and experimental things being done to children, evil things.
January 19, 2023, an article comes out in The China Story:

How the Rabbit Became an Emblem for Both Gay Men and Chinese Nationalists

What they started in 2020 they will combine what they did then with what they will do in 2024.

DNA transfiguration going on with the transgenders, first, it was changing of their minds, then sterilization, then next DNA transfiguration.

Right now, there is a hidden agenda and they will PREY (the rabbit) on the young first.


Strongest earthquake in 25 years rocks Taiwan, killing 9 people and stranding 70 workers in quarries

And says the Spirit of the Lord this day, watch the South Pacific and a shrewd maneuver with Taiwan is coming as the serpent that has gone forth from China attempting to constrict that area, the tail of that serpent shall be cut off first and then the body shall be split in two says the Lord of Hosts for an ERUPTION IS SET TO OCCUR IN CHINA MASSIVE, the hold of the rulers upon the people through the government is weakening and resistance has begun to bubble up in that nation. You shall not see at first and then suddenly it shall spring forth as REBELLION goes forth in that land.

Taiwan, the Congo, parts of Kenya, and Central America shall be fought over more including wars between terrorist groups, governments, mercenaries, cartels shall war with each other even in order to build on and extract from what these areas have been deeply rich in some deep in the earth new minerals and resources still unfound shall be found, however, righteous leaders must be raised up to block the nefarious plans that these resources so will allow.


And says the Lord of Hosts a plague of flies you shall see in parts of the world, a plague of beetles you shall see, you shall see swarms come in that will cause the science world to scratch their head as the earth is groaning and crying out and these major shifts and movements take place you shall see even nature respond as I The Lord allow these things to take place.

9.25.23 (Yom Kippur)
And says the Spirit of the Lord this day, Plagues shall hit the earth, for principalities and rulers have violated orders, and the leaders in which they control have challenged the sovereignty of MY throne, they have opened the door to such in the earth, historic, however, says the Lord, those who come under MY wing shall be protected says the Lord for this is a plague on governments and facilities of destruction says the Lord, locusts, and beetles as well says the Lord at appointed times shall end up in an unusual area that does not have a history of seeing such.


Cicadas 2024: This year's broods will make for a rare event not seen in over 200 years.

In the coming months, certain states will experience a rare natural event that hasn't occurred in over 200 years: The emergence of two separate broods of cicadas.

After 13 years, Brood XIX is set to emerge in the spring of 2024 in 14 states across the Southeast and Midwest, and the 17-year Brood XIII will emerge in five Midwestern states around the same time, according to Cicada Mania.

This double emergence is the first time this has happened in 221 years. According to ScienceAlert.com, this won't happen again until 2245.

The rare, double-brood event hasn't happened for over 200 years. It last occurred 221 years ago, in 1803.

The U.S. looked very different then: Thomas Jefferson was president, the Louisiana Purchase had just been completed and there were only 17 states in the union.

Time Magazine:
More than a trillion cicadas will be coming to the U.S. in an event that has not happened since Thomas Jefferson was U.S. president in 1803.

Cicadas have sometimes been described as beetles with wings sticking out. The nymphs have been described as 'beetles that turn into flies. ' Cicadas are closely related to leafhoppers, planthoppers, and spittlebugs.

Brood XIII and Brood XIX cicadas will emerge in the spring and summer of 2024. The exact dates are unclear, although scientists predict the most explosive emergence will fall within a two-to-three-week period from mid-May through early June. They could arrive as early as late April.

What are the odds of this 221-year event happening the year of a full solar eclipse, in an election year?

Meaning they will arrive within that 50 day period from Passover to Shavuot the feast of weeks, and Pentecost.

April 30, 1803
April 30th this year is the end of Passover.

Louisiana Purchase
Livingston and Monroe are sent to conclude a treaty for the acquisition of New Orleans, but instead conclude a treaty for the purchase of the entire Louisiana Territory. This day marks the official signing of a peace treaty with France and the purchase of Louisiana. The addition of 828,000 square miles of land between the Mississippi and the Rocky Mountains was purchased from France for approximately $15 million, increasing the national territory by 140 percent.

Louisiana Purchase Treaty Signed
On April 30, 1803, representatives from the United States and France signed the Louisiana Purchase Treaty. The terms of the agreement gave all of the Louisiana territory from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains to the United States. The Louisiana Purchase doubled the size of the United States and is considered one of President Thomas Jefferson's greatest presidential accomplishments.
