Mystery of Christ in Asbury Chapel and Turkey Earthquake

EarthquakeFebruary 23, 2023 (Day 54):  The Chapel Service at Asbury University in Kentucky that was held an hour before the Turkey earthquake on February 20, 2023 reflected the faces of Christ over Turkey during the earthquake.  A band of six students plus a seventh student at the altar matched the Bow Configuration in the chart of the planets over Turkey.  The positions of the students and their functions in the Chapel service corresponded to the meanings of the planets that reflected the face of Christ over Turkey.

The  Turkey earthquake
was at 1704/29 GMT, which is 1204/29 EST in Kentucky.  The Chapel was empty of students from 11 AM to 1 PM EST.  The earthquake on Feb. 20 was the second major earthquake with aftershocks that occurred after the first group of earthquakes occurred on Feb. 6, 2023.

A student stood at the podium at the right side of the stage beside a large cross, corresponding to an altar.  The student wore red, corresponding to the blood sacrifice of Christ at the cross.  The color red is also symbolic of Adam and suffering.  This symbolized retroactive positional truth, which is identification with Christ in His death (ref. Gal 2:20).  Later, the student body president stood before the cross wearing white, for sanctification, corresponding to forgiveness of sins and Positional Sanctification.  The position of the altar corresponded in the earthquake chart to Taurus, which had the Red Planet, for the Blood of Christ and the plagues of the world (such as the earthquake).


The podium next to the cross was in the position in the earthquake chart corresponding to the Mediator Planet, for the Lord Jesus Christ as the  Mediator of the New Covenant to the Church (ref. Heb. 9:15).  During Chapel services various speakers addressed the congregation from the podium, which also corresponded to a High Place on Earth.

A band of six students were on the left side of the stage.  Two girls were lead singers, corresponding to the sign of Pisces, for the two fish, one pointed toward Heaven and the other toward Earth.  Pisces corresponds to the location of Kentucky.  There were two planets in Pisces in the chart:
  1. Almighty God - Jesus Christ as the Lord of all.
  2. Morning Star - the Spiritual life of the believer.
Three students were behind the lead singers.  The three were in the next sign, Aquarius.  A boy was playing percussion and corresponded to the Redeemer Planet in Aquarius, for being redeemed from Sheol.  The percussion also symbolized the sound of the earthquake.  Next, two students played guitars - a girl and a boy.  The round holes in the sound boxes of the guitars symbolized the Sun and Moon. The girl symbolized the Moon and the boy symbolized the Sun in the chart.

Next was a large, grand piano, played by a boy.  The piano with the top open symbolized the empty tomb of Christ after the Resurrection.  On the stage steps went up behind the piano to a picture of Christ in Heaven in Resurrection body.  The piano player was associated with Aquarius and the next sign Capricornus.  The piano is played with hands and feet.  The feet of the piano player symbolized the feet of Peace of the Last Adam Planet, corresponding to the Gospel of Peace (reconciliation) (Eph 6:15) and the Covenant of Peace for the Millennium (Isa 54:10).  The Last Adam Planet was in Capricornus, where it is the sign of an outcast, such as Jesus Christ as the stone which the builders cast away (Mk 12:10).  This also corresponded to the exit on the left side of the stage behind the piano player.

Spiritual Meaning

Asbury ChapelChapel services at Asbury University are held in Hughes Auditorium.  The auditorium, like the architecture of many church buildings, has Spiritual symbolism.  The stage symbolizes the Earth with the Stage of Life (1 Cor 4:9), an Altar, or High Place, and a Grand Piano, symbolizing the Body of Christ, the Church (Eph 5:23).  The congregation, or audience, sits in front of the stage. 

The second level of  the stage represents Heaven.  A stairway connects the first level of the stage to the second.  There is a picture of Christ on the second level, corresponding to Christ in His Resurrection Body in Heaven.  The choir stands on a platform on the second level, and the orchestra sits behind the choir.  The orchestra and choir symbolize the angelic choir in Heaven.

Above the second level of  the stage is a window as commonly found in a baptistry.  The window symbolizes the Throne of God in Heaven (Rev 4:2-4).  Regardless of how it all came about, the Asbury Chapel has Spiritual significance.  It is part of the Plan of God, and angels labored long and hard to make it into its current form.  The building may not be considered sacred, but it is certainly full of Divine, Heavenly meaning.

The building is just the beginning.  Putting on a worship service that is synchronized with the heavens and with an earthquake is awesome.  God had to decree such a thing in His Plan and myriads of angels had to make it happen.  Behind the visible humans were invisible angels who influenced everything.  Art and music are orchestrated by angels and demons.  They either control people like puppets or have strong influence over them.  The people don't feel, see, or hear anything.  They are oblivious to the angels.  God decrees life for people, but He uses angels to make life and manage the multitude of relationships in the world.

Angels brought teachers and students to Asbury University.  They brought the audience to the Chapel.  They brought the musicians and singers.  They gave the singers their talent, and protected the hearers from demonic distraction.  But to synchronize the Asbury musicians to the chart  of the heavens over the Turkey earthquake was Divinely miraculous.  The Lord Jesus Christ was at Asbury Chapel in Spirit.  He called out the students and gave them a new role in the Church.  They will spend the rest of their lives discovering and living the New Spiritual Life that He has ordained.  The students are untrained for their New Life and will have to make many decisions over their lifetime to fulfill their Divine calling.  However, the flame of the Lord of their calling into fellowship with Christ will always be with them and never go out (Rom 8:35, 38, 39).

The two groups of Turkey earthquakes on Feb.  6 and 20 symbolize the shaking of Earth and Heaven in the two Advents of Jesus Christ as the High Priest of the New Covenant to the Church (Hag 2:6, 7; Heb 12:26, 27).  Earthquakes occurred during the First Advent of Christ that woke the dead (Matt 27:51-52, 53, 54; 28:2; Isa 26:19).  Earthquakes will also herald the Second Advent (Rev 6:12; 8:5; 11:13; 16:18), and Heaven will be shaken in the Tribulation prior to the Second Advent (Rev 11:19).         


The Chart at the time of the second earthquake in Turkey (6.3 magnitude) is described in the Second Turkey Earthquake, Shaking Earth and Sea.  The Chart contains a Bow of planets that correspond to the musicians and speakers on the stage of Asbury University Chapel in Kentucky.


The students and teachers on the stage in Asbury Chapel one hour before the Turkey Earthquake on Feb. 20, 2023 correspond to the configuration of planets over the earthquake.  The lineup of planets contains a Bow configuration, and the six-member band and speaker at the podium in Asbury Chapel also form a bow.  The number 7 is for categorical completion.  And the functions of the people on the stage in Asbury Chapel also correspond to the meaning of the planets over the earthquake.

Thus, the students and teachers on the stage at Asbury Chapel were directly associated with the Turkey earthquake.  One event is blessing and the other cursing in the Plan of God.  The Asbury students were called into fellowship in the Church.  The people in Turkey were cursed in the Judgment of Ecumenical Babylon in the earthquake.  The Turkey earthquake corresponds to earthquakes at the Second Advent.  The Church will not go through the earthquakes at the Second Advent.  The Church will return with Christ from Heaven at the Second Advent to conquer the enemies of the Lord.  The citizens of Turkey are mostly Muslims, who have rejected Christ, while Christians like those at Asbury University are blessed by association with Jesus Christ, the Savior  of the world.

The miraculous events at Asbury University and in Turkey required the Plan of God and the work of His angels.  The Turkey earthquakes were Judgment from angelic warriors under Michael while the art, music, and teaching in the Church at Asbury University were functions of the Angelic College of Heralds under Gabriel.  The angels were invisible, but the miraculous events did not occur without them.  They deliver blessing and cursing from the Hand of God. 

The awakening and calling out of students in their 20's is the sign of a generational blessing, since 20 is the number for a generation.  The Lord Jesus Christ as the High Priest of the Church will lead the generation.  This is the mystery of  Christ in the Church (Eph 3:4; Col 2:2; 4:3).  The mystery hidden in Christ will be revealed to the new generation of disciples who advance to Spiritual Maturity by executing the New Spiritual  Life that God has given them through the Holy Spirit.  Prayer will not suffice, and singing will not bring success.  Only daily metabolization of Bible Doctrine:  Learning and executing Bible Doctrine, the Bread of Life, in the Filling of the Holy Spirit will lead to Spiritual Growth.  Those who reject the New Life in Christ will die in the wilderness, like the Exodus generation of those 20 and older (Num 14:29).

The Lord shook Turkey with earthquakes and 40,000 people died in the wilderness in a generation that rejected Bible Doctrine.  The Lord shook Heaven in Kentucky calling out a new generation to live the New Spiritual Life in Christ.  Will they advance to maturity or will they die in the wilderness like the Exodus generation?  Every generation must find Christ or die.
