The Curse of the Green Comet

February 1, 2023 (Day 32):  The Green Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF came closest to Earth on February 1, 2023.  After its discovery in 2022, the comet with a green head and long vapor trail traveled around the Sun reaching perihelion on January 12, 2023 and passing closest to Earth on February 1, 2023.  A comet is a cloud of dust that travels around the Sun in an elliptical orbit.  It spends most of  its time in the deep darkness of space and is only visible when it reflects the light of the Sun as it comes near.  The last time the Green Comet came near the Sun was 50,000 years ago.

A comet symbolizes an unbeliever who has rejected God and lives as the spiritual slave of Satan (ref. Jude 1:13).  Satan can give great power to his subjects and these people may become Evil Kings or Prostitutes of Babylon. Rejection of authority can come from legalism, symbolized by the color blue, or lawlessness, symbolized by the color green.  The green comet thus symbolizes the Man of Lawlessness, or Antichrist, who will arise in the Tribulation (ref. 2 Thess 2:3-4; 8-10).  The Man of Lawlessness will be indwelt by Satan, and Satan will give him power in a life of darkness.

A comet symbolizes the work of Satan in a person.  And it symbolizes Satan's life after he rejected God.  God gives life, and Satan rejected the life that God gave him.  Satan was not satisfied with his creation and wanted to rule in the place of the Lord, who appeared at the time as the Angel of the Lord (Isa 14:14).  The Green Comet existed 50,000 years ago when there was no man that was guilty of sinning.  Adam was the first man who was guilty of sin, and  he was created less than 10,000 years ago.  The prehistoric men on the Earth 50,000 years ago were Homo sapiens and Neanderthals.  Neither could be guilty of sin because there was no Law (Rom 5:13).  So, 50,000 years ago the Green Comet symbolized the life of Satan and not a man.  And the prehistoric men on the  Earth were under the power of Elect and Fallen Angels.  Satan had already sinned and was living a life in rebellion against God.

The appearance of the Green Comet in 2022 made good sense, since it stood for cursing.  However, its perihelion and  flyby of Earth in 2023 is more problematic.  It obviously symbolizes a curse of highest magnitude and a stumbling block.  Since the year 2023 symbolizes
cursing turned to blessing, how could a Satanic curse be a blessing?

The Comet

Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) was discovered March 2, 2022.  The name means:
C - a non periodic comet with  an orbit of more than 200 years.
2022 - year discovered
E3 - the third comet discovered in the 5th half Moon of the year (i.e. 1st half of March)
ZTF - Zwicky Transit Facility observatory of discovery.
As the comet approached the Sun, it appeared to travel through the Pole Signs and spent 3 months (October through December) in Corona Borealis, the Crown of Thorns.  The signs around the North Pole of the heavens symbolize the top-level overview of the Creation of mankind to resolve the prehistoric Angelic Conflict.  Note, the link to the Pole Signs needs to be read to understand the meaning of the Green Comet in relation to the present time and 50,000 years ago and what God was saying.

Double Cursing

As the Green Comet moved through the Pole Signs, two cases of double mass shootings occurred in California.  On January 22 a shooter killed 11 people at a Chinese Lunar New Year celebration at a dance hall in Monterey Park.  The gunman then went to a second dance hall but was disarmed before he could shoot anyone.

On January 23 a gunman killed 7 people and injured 1 at two locations in Half Moon Bay.  The shooter worked on mushroom farms, and he shot his fellow workers.  The shooter drove to the Sheriff's Office and surrendered.

Both pairs of California shootings were associated with the Moon, and one pair was even in Half Moon Bay.  The relation to the Moon correlates to the name of the comet, which includes the date in reference to the half Moon.

50,000 Years Ago

Creation EarthThere were two species of man on  the Earth 50,000 years ago, Homo sapiens and Neanderthals.  "Homo" is Latin for human (or man), and sapiens means wise; therefore, "wise man."  Homo sapiens were so named because they had greater brain capacity than other animals.  This enabled them to walk erect.

The Neanderthals were an older species that lived in Europe and Asia.  They were more muscular and lived in the  caves along  the Mediterranean Sea.  Homo sapiens first appeared about 300,000 years ago, and Neanderthals became extinct about 40,000 years ago.  Neither Homo sapiens nor Neanderthals were ancestors of modern man.  They were more like animals with higher intelligence.  They could not carry on a conversation.  They had very limited vocabularies consisting of grunts and noises like animals.  They did not understand right from wrong.  Yet they were able to live in small families, hunt, gather food, and make some stone tools.

After Satan's Fall (Isa 14:12; Lk 10:18), believed to be 66 million years ago, 3/4 of all life species were destroyed due to a meteor that struck the Yucatan Peninsula area.  Creation glorifies God (Ps 148; Isa 43:20), but after the fall  of Satan, the environment on  Earth suffered a catastrophe.  On January 26, 2023 an asteroid came within 2,200 miles of the Earth in a near miss.

After Satan's Fall, there was war in Heaven between the Elect and Fallen Angels.  During this time, God repopulated the Earth with plants and wild animals.  Millions of years later about 1.8 million  years ago, new species of prehistoric man were created beginning with Homo erectus.  These creatures were given lives from God and managed by the angels (Elect and Fallen).  They were protected from wild animals and the elements in order to survive. 

All of the prehistoric men were hunter gatherers.  They had some part in Satan's trial in which he was convicted and sentenced to the Lake of Fire.  However, they did not know right from wrong and therefore had no guilt from sin.  Nevertheless, these prehistoric men symbolized angels, and Satan and the Elect Angels controlled them.  So, their lives were under the care of  God or Satan.  Satan, however, could not give these creatures a life worth living.

Creation of Adam

When Satan's trial was over and he was sentenced to the Lake of Fire.  He accused God of being unfair and appealed the decision.  God granted the Appeal.  The Earth was re-created in seven days, and Adam was created in the Garden of Eden to prove that God was Righteous in His decision to condemn Satan and his demons.  Adam was an entirely different creature from Homo sapiens that still existed in different parts of  the Earth.
Adam was created in the image and likeness of God (ref. Gen. 1:26-27; Creation of Man).  Man was created in the"image" of God with a body, soul, and spirit.  He was Spiritually alive like God, and he had a soul with human life and personality like the Lord Jesus Christ.  He was a witness in the "image" of God.  He had a soul capable of knowing Good and evil.  He was capable of sin and having guilt from sin.

"Likeness of God" means that Adam functioned like God as the representative of God.  He was perfect, ruler of the world as God was over Creation, with a mind, heart, and volition capable of communicating with God along the X, Y, and Z axes.  As the representative of God, Adam was designed to prove that God was Righteous - not to condemn Satan.  So, the issue in the Appeal Trial was the Righteousness of God - not the sin of Satan.

Adam was not a hunter gatherer.  He was the first farmer due to a curse from God (Gen 3:17, 18, 19).  Adam grew plants and raised livestock.  His descendants left the Tigris-Euphrates Valley and populated the world.  However, they intermarried with prehistoric Homo sapiens who were demon-possessed.  The DNA of the sons of Adam was about to be lost in the DNA of Homo sapiens, and the generations of Adam were about to become extinct.  That would end the Appeal Trial prematurely.  So, God sent the Flood in the time of Noah.  All of the prehistoric Homo sapiens died in the Flood and became extinct along with the unbeliever descendants of Adam.     

Cursing Turned to Blessing

Because Satan sinned, Adam was created in the blessing of God to resolve Satan's Appeal Trial.  Because Adam sinned the Lord Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the sons of Adam on the cross and provided Salvation for all mankind.  However, man was still given a choice, and only those who chose Salvation could receive it through faith in Christ.  Since the time of Adam, Salvation has been available to Gentiles and Jews.  After the Resurrection of Christ, the Church was called out as His Royal Family.

Because Israel rejected the Lord Jesus Christ just as Satan rejected the Creator, God cursed the Jews and blessed the Church from among the Gentiles (Rom 9:21, 22, 23, 24).  The Church became the Royal Family in lieu of the Jews, and God bestowed upon the Church the riches of  His glory (ref. Rom 9:23) in the New Spiritual Life (Rom 6:4).  The Church is like branches broken off of the olive tree of Israel and wild olive branches grafted into the root (Rom 11:17, 18).  This is cursing turned to blessing.  Cursing is turned to blessing at Salvation (Eph 2:11, 12, 13).    Pruning symbolizes cursing turned to blessing (Jn 15:2).


The return of the Green Comet, C/2022 E3 (ZTF) after 50,000 years is the sign of a major curse in the year that symbolizes cursing turned to blessing.  The curse was heralded by other strange curses, such as two double mass shootings in California and Damar Hamlin's sudden cardiac arrest during a National Football League game.  The comet is a stumbling block associated with Satan.  The green color of the comet symbolizes the Antichrist, Man of Lawlessness, who will arise in the Tribulation. 

Satan rejected his Creation.  He was the crowning glory of angelic life in Creation, but he became the first to reject the Creation of  God.  Satan wasn't satisfied with his life from God.  He wanted to rule in the place of the Lord Jesus Christ.  God sustains the life of His creatures, and for a creature to reject his created life is a one-way ticket to doom, damnation, and death.  However, Satan could not be killed, since he already had  Eternal Life.  The only alternative would be separation from God and Eternal Judgment. 

Satan and his followers, the Fallen Angels, or demons, chose to defy God and suffer the consequences.  There was a trial in Heaven, and prehistoric men on the Earth, Homo sapiens, were witnesses of the angels in some way.  Adam had not yet been created.  When Satan and his demons were found guilty and sentenced to the Lake of Fire, Satan accused God of being unfair and appealed the decision.  God granted the Appeal and created Adam as the representation and representative of God.

When Adam sinned, more witnesses of man were created through Eve to prove the Righteousness of God.  Noah and his family were brought through the Flood as witnesses for God.  Then Abraham and his family were called to be witnesses for God.  They became the nation of Israel with great blessing among the nations of the Earth.  However, when the Jews eventually rejected God as Satan had done, God cursed them and called out the Church to be the Lord's Royal Family and receive the riches of glory of Divine Blessing.

In conclusion, Satan's great cursing resulted in the greatest of blessing of the riches of glory being given to the Church.  Because of Satan's sin and the trials that followed, the ordinary believer of the Church became the recipient of manifold blessings.  The blessings are a Grace gift from God.  After the generational curse of 2020-2022 that included world-wide pestilence, God has decreed cursing turned to blessing for Church Age Believers in 2023.
