Subject: Revelation - clear astronomical interpretation!? Date: 12 Dec
1995 16:45:56 +0300 I was under the impression that Revelations in the
bible is a serious of coded messages sent back and forth between
different Christian groups that lived in the Roman Empire under the
reign of Diocletian. The Beast, 666 and all the other hubbub correspond
to the time period.
I have a book of Russian scientist Morozov N.A. written at the
beginning of this century devoted to the Revelation (It is in Russian
'Otkroven'e v groze i bure' (Revelation in Thunderstorm and Tempest')
2-d edition 1907, Moscow). At this book the author very convincingly
shows that R. is just a description of the impression of the religious
man. This man knows astronomy and astrology and describes impression,
produced on him by thunderstorm accompanied by earthquake in the day of
solar eclipse on Patmos island and events on the following night and
the next day. Most animals, men, women and objects that he describes
are either constellations on the sky that he saw or calculated among
clouds or exotic clouds itself. Horses are planets in constellations.
Just two short
examples (my comments according to interpretation of Morozov). My
advice: find medieval sky map, for example by Durer or Grienberg and
look at it while reading.
There are a lot of
astronomical and astrological data, for example in VII.4-8 names of 12
astrological houses in Hebrew with 144.000 stars-souls = 24h*60m*1000
and in XXI.19-20 12 astrological gems are given. A lot of
constellations are in chapters IX,XIV,XV,XIX,XX. >From Ch.XII - moon
is in Virgo.
word by word the original Greek text Morozov hour by hour reconstructs
events of this night. And everything becomes clear. especially when
historical situation of this time is applied. All the strange places of
the Revelation follow from the fact that interpreters translating it in
other languages didn't know astronomy. The author of the Revelation
basing on his astrological knowledge forecasts the end of the world
when winner-Jupiter will be in Aries-Jesus, this will happen in 1260
days (42 months, 3 and a half years).
data are so precise that in many ways allow to reconstruct the date of
this night. What is wonderful that it is not the first century but the
30th of September 395 a.d. and the end of the world is planned in 13 of
March 399 ad. In this way the author of the Revelation can't be Apostle
John. However, Morozov finds the author! It is another famous John -
John Chrisostom future bishop of Konstantinople.
the second part of the book the author tells the biography of this
John. He shows that without assumption that it was he who wrote the
Revelation it is impossible to understand events of his life, what
transformed him from outlaw into a mighty bishop and again into an
outlaw soon after his forecasting failed. Interesting that he was
accused in stealing of some works of Apostle John.
the last part of the book author analyses arguments of his opponents
and shows that there are no real evidences that Revelation was written
before the 4th century. Than he gives the letter of astronomers from
Pulkov observatory who confirmed his calculations.
also checked his analysis and found that there is only one another
appropriate solution, however it is in the XIV century and not Sunday.
don't know the future history of this idea. Know only that there was
wide discussion in Russian language literature. Don't know whether his
book was translated in other languages. Morozov also wrote research of
the chronology in 7 volumes 'Christos' (Christ) - I don't have it, only
seen in the library - which also includes analysis of Revelation and
other religious books.

2 And immediately I was in the Spirit:
and, behold, a throne was set in heaven,
and one sat on the throne.
4 And round about the throne were
four and twenty seats: and upon the seats
I saw four and twenty sitting, clothed in
white raiment; and they had on their
heads crowns of gold.
And out of the throne proceeded
lightnings and thunderings and
voices: and there were seven lamps
of fire burning before the throne,
which are seven Spirits of God.
And before the throne there was
a sea of glass like unto crystal.
And in the midst of the throne,
and round about the throne were
four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
And the first beast was like a lion,
and the second beast like a
calf, and the third beast had a
face as a man, and the fourth
beast was like a flying eagle.
And the four beasts had each of
them six wings about him; and they
were full of eyes within: and they
rest not day and night, saying,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
which was, and is, and is to come
The four and twenty elders fall
down before him that sat on the
throne, and worship him that
liveth for ever and ever, and cast
their crowns before the throne, saying,
And I saw, and behold a white
horse: and he that sat on him had
a bow; and a crown was given unto
him: and he went forth conquering,
and to conquer.
And there went out another
horse that was red: and power was
given to him that sat thereon to
take peace from the earth, and
that they should kill one another:
and there was given unto him a
And when he had opened the
third seal, I heard the third
beast say, Come and see. And I
beheld, and lo a black horse; and
he that sat on him had a pair of
balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the
midst of the four beasts say, A
measure of wheat for a penny, and
three measures of barley for a
penny; and see thou hurt not the
oil and the wine.
And I looked, and behold a pale
horse: and his name that sat on him
was Death, and Hell followed with him.
And power was given unto them
over the fourth part of the ear
and Piscus, rooling South-East
to kill with sword, and with
hunger, and with death, and with
the beasts of the earth.....
And I beheld when he had opened
the sixth seal, and, lo, there was
a great earthquake; and the sun
became black as sackcloth of hair,
and the moon became as blood;
