The symbol on many European churches is the very symbol for the PLANET SATURN:
There is a lot behind this symbol of the cross with a curved line. One definition is that it represents ˜the number 4'. The curved line represents an ancient symbol for ˜a robe', the robe that was written to be put on Jesus when he was put through a ritual. Sometimes during the spring season and during this Easter [Eastern holiday], many churches drape ˜a purple cloth' around their crosses in front of their church and this is the same as the curved line in the symbol for the planet Saturn. The cross also has a huge historical story. As the Roman Empire leaders were empire builders, this symbol of the cross meant ˜to have dominion over the four corners of the world'. On the temple of Jupiter, this was represented by ˜the quadriga' [a chariot drawn by four horses].
It was written that the temple of Jupiter was built around A.D. 500s in Italy by the Romans when they formed the Roman Republic. There was no temple of Saturn until after the Romans formed the Roman Empire. They Romans actually changed the name of an old temple, the temple of Treasury [Mercury] to become known as the temple of Saturn. They did not equate this temple with the actual star until the A.D. 100s.
One reason that the earth experiences great instability during these times is due to the star line ups that are occurring off and on in the sky since around the A.D. 2000s. Also, eclipses are sure to cause turbulent phenomena somewhere on this planet earth. The planet Saturn is considered an ancient planet. The next moving star to enter our solar system, Uranus, occurred in the A.D. 1600s and scientist knew of its arrival for a number of reason but, one reason was due to the pull and the vibrations it made on the earth when it came into orbit. The planet Saturn is a huge planet and its very presence behind the moon in A.D. 33.5 contributed to the total solar eclipse that did occur that evening on the Crucifixion. The Romans were serious Star worshipers!
The Bible describes Jesus as being girded with ˜a golden band' in many places in the Old and New Testament. Did you know that the rings on the planet Saturn appears ˜gold' or ˜yellowish' at times when viewing in a telescope? Umh? This is knew info to me as I grew up in the black church believing that the Star of Bethlehem was anything but a possible star in the sky. So, I am open for criticism and critique.
