Luke 21:25

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars…

Luke 21:11

… fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Acts 2:19

And I will shew wonders in heaven above…

“In the year of the world 2453, according to certain authorities, a comet was seen in Syria, Babylonia, India, in the sign of Jo, in the form of a disc, at the very time when the Israelites were on their march from Egypt to the Promised Land.”

 – Johannes Hevelius, Cometographia (1668)

“In the year of our world 2453 – as many trustworthy authors, on the basis of many conjectures, have determined – a comet appeared which Pliny also mentioned in his second book. It was fiery red, of irregular circular form, with a wrapped head; it was in the shape of a globe and was of terrible aspect. It is said that the King Typhon ruled at the time in Egypt. Certain authorities assert the comet was seen in Syria, Babylonia, India, in the sign of Capricorn, in the form of a disc, at the time when the children of Israel advanced from Egypt toward the Promised Land, led on their way by a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night.”

– Abraham Rockenbach, De Cometis Tractatus Novus Methodicus (1602)

Many other authors, Lydus, Servius, Hephaestion and Juctinus also mentioned the comet Typhon. They all described it as an immense globe of fire, who’s movement was slow and close to the sun. Its color was bloody; “It was not of fiery, but of bloody redness.” They said the object caused destruction with its rising and setting and was the cause of many plagues, evils and hunger. They also said that if the earth were to meet with Typhon again, a four day encounter would suffice to destroy the world.

“A terrible comet was seen by the people of Ethiopia and Egypt, to which Typhon, the king of that period, gave his name; it had a fiery appearance and was twisted like a coil, and it was very grim to behold: it was not really a star so much as what might be called a ball of fire.”

– Pliny the Elder, Natural History, Book 2,    Section 91(ca. 80 A.D.)

“OVER SHOOTING-STARS [ZIKIN]. What are ZIKIN? Samuel said: A comet. Samuel also said: I am as familiar with the paths of heaven as with the streets of Nehardea, with the exception of the comet, about which I am ignorant. There is a tradition that it never passes through the constellation of Orion, for if it did, the world would be destroyed…”

– Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Berakoth, Folio 58b (ca. 500 A.D.)

The Comet Hale-Bopp passed through the constellation of Orion from April 23, 1997 until June 11, 1997.

The Comet Hale–Bopp had its closest approach to Earth (perigee) on March 22, 1997- the day before the First Day of the Feast of Passover/ Unleavened Bread.

The Comet Hale-Bopp had its closest approach to the Sun (perihelion) on March 31, 1997- the day after the Last Day of the Feast of Passover/ Unleavened Bread.

Just as the Israelites witnessed the comet at the time of the Exodus/Passover 3500 years ago, so did modern Israelites witness the comet at the time of the Passover in 1997.

Just as the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40 years before being allowed to enter into the Promised Land, so are modern Israelites wandering in the wilderness for 40 years until they are allowed to enter the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth.

1997 A.D. + 40 Years = 2037 A.D.
