NASA Launches Artemis to the Moon

November 16, 2022 (Day 320)NASA successfully launched Artemis to the Moon from Kennedy Space Center Pad 39B on November 16, 2022 at 1:47/44 AM   It was the first  launch of the powerful, new NASA Moon rocket.  Some problems during the countdown delayed launch from the beginning of  the window at 1:04 AM EST.  As tanking was nearing completion, a hydrogen leak was reported associated with the Replenish Valve, and a Red Team was dispatched to the Pad to tighten the packing nuts of the Replenish Valve at the base of the Mobile Launcher platform.   Then Range Safety had to replace an Ethernet switch to get data from a radar that was required for launch.  After the work was complete, the countdown resumed.
Launch was at 1:47/44 AM EST (0647 GMT), where the numbers mean:  1, unity; 47, peace; and 44, suffering.  The launch was the beginning of a 25-day mission for the unmanned Orion capsule to orbit the Moon and return.  The mission is a stepping stone to prove the flight worthiness of NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) to go to the Moon.  If the test is a success, NASA plans to send astronauts back to the Moon.  The last Moon mission was in 1972.  Going back there will be a long, complicated, and very expensive process.

There were signs in the sky during the day before launch.  After recent clear weather, the sky suddenly became overcast in the morning and there were even occasional raindrops.  The overcast sky was the background for the image of an alligator that appeared over Kennedy Space Center on the infrared weather map.  Along with the alligator was a Sun halo that appeared from 10 AM to 12:30 PM EST.  And beside the Sun halo strange stripes like scourging marks appeared.  These signs were communication from the weather angel.


NASA rolled Artemis to the launch pad on August 17, 2022.  Early attempts to launch the rocket failed because it could not be tanked due to hydrogen leaks.  It also had an affinity for lightning, rain, and storms, which further interfered with launch attempts.  It had to be rolled back to the Vehicle Assembly Building  (VAB) due to approaching Hurricane Ian, which aimed straight for it.  When it was rolled back to the pad, it encountered some strong wind gusts from Tropical Storm Nicole, although the vehicle only suffered loss of some caulking, which was not a problem. 

SheepNASA rolled Artemis back to the pad on November 4, 2022.  On that day a flock of sheep in northern China began walking in a circle.  They continued walking in the circle clockwise for 12 days.  The sheep were on a farm in Baotou in Inner Mongolia.  A circle symbolizes a covenant, and the circle of sheep symbolizes the
New Covenant to the Church, which is the mystery doctrine of the Church contained in the epistles to the Church.  The sheep symbolize believers, and the Lord Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd (Jn 10:11, 14) of the flock of sheep (Jn 10:16).  The clockwise motion of the sheep is the direction of the Orion spacecraft orbiting the Moon (ref. mission picture above).

The sheep were behaving strangely by marching in the circle because they were under the power of an Elect Angel.

On November 8 there was a total Lunar Eclipse.  The Moon was darkened and appeared brownish from the space center.  God specifies the times of eclipses from His Sovereign design.  It was God's answer to NASA for naming the Moon rocket after the Moon goddess from Satan's pantheon. On the day of the eclipse Nicole was named a tropical storm.  It would later hit Florida and cause NASA to delay the first Artemis launch two days to November 16.

On the day before launch the weather angel left signs in the sky as clues of Divine viewpoint of NASA's plans to go to the Moon.  In the morning Sun halos appeared.  A Sun halo symbolizes the New Covenant to the Church, which is the new mystery doctrine for the Church contained in the 21 epistles to the Church (Rom 16:25; 1 Cor 2:7; Eph 1:9; 3:3, 4, 9; 6:19; Col 1:26-27; 4:3; 1 Tim 3:9, 16).  The Moon symbolizes the congregation of believers, the Church.  Artemis is the name of an idol.

MLPThere were stripes in the sky north of the Sun halo.  The stripes turned out to represent pipes on the Mobile Launcher that the Red Team passed on the way to tighten the packing nuts on the Replenish Valve.   Angels know the future, and they knew there would be a problem with hydrogen leaking intermittently from the Hydrogen Replenish Valve.  They probably even caused it.

The image of an alligator was over the launch pad in the infrared weather images.  An alligator is the symbol of Baal.  Artemis is actually the  same as Baal.  However, there is something more subtle here. 
Artemis is considered the mistress of wild life.  As the goddess of the hunt, she is often portrayed with hunting dogs.  The woman in the Garden had a fondness for animals.  Kennedy Space Center is on a wildlife preserve.  It is a wetland with wild animals, like the garden of Eden after the fall.  It is full of all sorts of wild animals, including alligators, snakes, birds, foxes, fish, and manatees.  This is a reminder of Marriage Culture that began in the Garden.  It is why hydrogen symbolizes the man and oxygen the woman in Marriage.  

Spiritual Meaning

The Artemis launch vehicle rolled out to the launch pad on November 4.  That day a flock of sheep in pin 13 on a farm in Baotou in Inner Mongolia began walking around in a circle for 12 days.  The flock of sheep in the circle symbolized believers in the flock (or congregation) of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Good Shepherd who gives His life for the sheep (Jn 10:11, 14, 16).  The Moon symbolizes the congregation of believers, which was Israel under the  Law and the Church in the Church Age.  The sheep walked clockwise around the circle for 12 days.  The clockwise motion is the direction of the  Orion spacecraft orbiting the Moon.  The 12 days was the number of days until launch, which was on November 16 after delays from two tropical storms.

The circle of sheep symbolizes the New Covenant to the Church, which is the mystery doctrine in the epistles to the Church in the New Testament.  The circle of sheep has the same meaning as the Sun halos that appeared in Florida on November 15, the day before launch, which  was at 1:47/44 AM the next morning.

The image of the alligator that appeared on the weather photograph over Kennedy Space Center (KSC) the day before launch symbolized Baal.  KSC is a wildlife preserve, and the alligator symbolizes the wild animals in the Garden of Eden after the fall.  The sins of Adam and the woman destroyed the first marriage.  The hydrogen leaks that plagued the launch symbolized problems with the man in Marriage Culture.

During the countdown, there was a hydrogen leak from the Hydrogen Replenish Valve.  A Red Team of three men was sent to the pad to tighten the packing nuts for the Replenish Valve on the Mobile Launcher platform.  The Red Team arrived in two white vehicles, where white is for sanctification and two symbolizes a witness.  There were two technicians and a safety inspector.  The Moon was in Cancer, for safety over a group (or congregation).  The three members of the Red Team symbolized the Justice of the Holy Spirit, which causes suffering.

There was also a problem with the Range Safety radar.  An Ethernet switch had to be replaced before the countdown could resume.  This was also related to the Moon in Cancer, for safety over a group.

The chart at the time of launch contained a Grand Cross, the most intensive sign of suffering in a chart.  It is like going  to the cross (Gal 2:20).  NASA has embarked on a plan to go to the Moon and beyond.  That is clearly not God's Plan.  The name Artemis, for the Moon goddess, and the plan to explore the Moon are not God's Plan.  This is evidence of Satan.  Yet God in His permissive Will allowed the launch to continue. 

The conflict between God and the devil is portrayed in the launch chart by the Mediator Planet in Aries in opposition to the Father and Sons configuration in Libra and Scorpius,  The Mediator Planet in Aries symbolizes the Lord Jesus Christ as the High Priest of  the Church.  The Sun in Libra symbolizes the Sovereign Father.  And the first two planets in Scorpius symbolize sons of Belial
(2 Cor 6:15), rebellious sons, unbelievers.   This all symbolizes the conflict between God and the devil, where the people are the sheep (disciples of Christ) or the slaves of the devil, sons of Belial (Jn 8:44).  Satan was using the launch to spread his lies, but God used the launch as an opportunity to evangelize the world with the truth (Jn 8:32; 14:6).


Artemis LaunchThe chart at the time of the Artemis launch contains a Grand Cross and a Boomerang.  A Grand Cross is the  most  intense sign of suffering, like  going to the cross.  The first launch of Artemis was at 1:47/44 AM EST, where 44 is for suffering.  The first launch was a taste of the suffering ahead should NASA decide to continue with its strategic plan of returning to the Moon and beyond.    A Boomerang signifies the ability to handle a crisis in timing, being able to strike at precisely the right time.  The Boomerang is aimed at the Moon, which was the objective of the Artemis mission.  It indicates that NASA was given the ability to accomplish the lunar mission with precise calculations.  The Boomerang points to the Moon in Cancer, for security for a congregation.  Security includes safety.  The Lord Jesus Christ guarantees security for the congregation of believers, the Church (Ps 27:1; Rom 8:38, 39).

The Moon is on one arm of the Grand Cross, and the Sun is on another.  The Sun is in Libra as a type of Father and Sons configuration.  The Sun in Libra is for the Sovereign Father.  The the planets with the configuration (Savior and Morning Star) are in a different sign.  The planets are in Scorpius, for sons of Belial (2 Cor 6:15).  These are wild children, like Esau and Ishmael.  They do not share their father's values.  They are the enemies of the cross (Phil 3:18).

The planets of the Father and Sons configuration form a Pole, a very strong opposition to the Mediator Planet in Aries, for the Lord Jesus Christ as the High Priest of the church.    Believers under the power of the devil oppose Jesus Christ as the Mediator of the New Covenant to the Church.

The other arm of the Grand Cross points to the God of the Covenants in Capricornus, for the Antichrist.  The Antichrist opposes the Moon in Cancer, for the security of the Church.  The Antichrist attacks the Church as the Prostitute of Babylon and the Evil King, man of lawlessness, antichrist.

The Red Planet is in Taurus, for the Plagues of Egypt.


The launch of Artemis on the mission to circle the Moon was a classic demonstration of the conflict between Divine Good and evil in human history.  Satan rules the world (Jn 14:30; 16:11; Eph 2:2; 6:12; 1 Jn 5:19).  That includes NASA, the Church, and all of us.  NASA was used by Satan to build a rocket to fly to the Moon for an adventure in the name of science.  The rocket was named Artemis, for Satan's Moon goddess, which is part of his lie about Creation.  However, this was idolatry.  Scientists would never knowingly worship idols; yet, that is exactly what they are doing.

In spite of Satan's power over NASA in preparation of the Artemis Moon mission, God allowed it to continue in His permissive Will.  The Sovereign Design of God had to make it possible.  He allowed the Artemis program to continue just as He allowed the Tower of Babel to be built before he knocked it down.  In spite of Satan's control over NASA, God used the launch of Artemis to tell the truth and evangelize the world.  He sent sheep to march around in a circle in China just as he sent the Army of Israel to march around Jericho (Josh 6:2-4; Heb 11:30).

God sent a weather angle to make a Sun halo in the sky over central Florida as a sign of the New Covenant to the Church.  And the image of an alligator was provided to explain the relation to the destruction of the first marriage in the Garden by sin.  The alligator symbolizes Baal, the enemy of marriage and children.  Baal is behind the culture of arrogance.

God also sent angels to make hydrogen leaks as a reminder of the failure of  the man in Marriage Culture.  Spiritual rapport with God is required for the Right Man to have harmonious rapport with the Right Woman.  True love in marriage is not possible without an Edification Complex of the Soul and Spiritual rapport with God.  Otherwise, Baal will destroy the relationship.

On the day of Rollout of Artemis to the launch pad (Nov. 8), God sent a lunar eclipse to express His disapproval.  A lunar eclipse symbolizes Eclipse Testing of the Right Woman in relation to her Right Man.  The woman who listens to Satan has her lights put out, and she in turn puts out the lights of her Right Man (Isa 53:6).  In the darkness sin rules and man is enslaved to Satan.  Love in marriage is lost.  Both Right Man and Right Woman suffer, followed by the family and the nation
