Comet ISON and Revelations Wormwood Prophecy
By Jennifer Asad 7/24/13; Revision 7/29/13
The name of one of the Russian discoverers of comet ISON translates to Wormwood and the name of the observatory where it was discovered means sour waters, being named after the town where the observatory is located. Christians and students of Revelations will recognize this coincidence immediately as a prophecy of End Times.
The comet ISON was discovered September 21, 2012 (fall equinox) by two Russian Astronomers named Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok. Comets have always been named after its discoverers but this one was named after the telescope they used.
Comet ISON is not alone! Spaceweather.com has video from Peter Lawrence, which shows up to 7 objects following along with it. Read the comments section at their website where other astronomers take note of these objects (youtube video link below).
Comet ISON is 3 to 4 miles wide at its core, but with its plume of gas and dust, is estimated at 125 miles wide. Its tail of gas and dust is almost 200 thousand miles long. Its orbit is estimated at 10 thousand years and said to be traveling 48,000 miles per hour; it is believed to be the first time it has entered our solar system form the Oort belt. These unprecedented statistics is why 2013 has been called The Year of the Comet and ISON is being called the Comet of the Century. ISON is a Sun-Grazer, meaning its orbit swings it around the sun and back out again.
ISON enters our solar system from the constellation of Orion between Taurus and Gemini and from the direction of the star Sirius, associated with the Egyptian deity Isis. Osiris would be the dead dwarf star that orbits her, whom she “gathered” from the regions after he was “cut into pieces” and strewn. She could not find his genitalia so fashioned a phallic out of which Horus was born. I have hypothesized that Horus is our sun having been born of Isis and Osiris. Walter Cruttenden at the Binary Research Center, and author of Lost Star, does a wonderful job of showing that our sun and Sirius are in an orbit around each other.
In August ISON will be leaving Gemini and entering Cancer. From September into October, ISON will be sweeping across the constellation of Leo. It is calculated to pass by Mars on October 1st. It then passes through Virgo in November where it becomes visible to the naked eye for the first time.
Let’s turn for a moment to end time prophecy as found in the book of Revelations chapter 12. In September 2011, a rare astrological event occurred where the sun clothed the constellation Virgo, moving down her left side as the moon moved into position at her feet. Meanwhile, the bright morning star Venus moved into her womb as the planet Saturn stood waiting to devour the child (see link to video). Saturn was also known as Chronos. In Greek myth, Saturn-Chronos eats his children as soon as they are born. Saturn has seven rings or “crowns” and it multiple moons, which ancient stargazers could have attributed as heads and horns. Satan, that dragon, has long been associated with the malevolent planet Saturn. It is currently a yellow-orange but could have been red at one time.
In Revelations, Jesus refers to himself as the bright morning star. Revelation 22:16~ I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
In the following verses Virgo would be the woman with 12 stars in her crown because there literally are 12 stars there. Saturn is the dragon.
Revelations 12: A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. 5 And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
There is actually a body of comets attributed to Saturn called Saturnian family of comets (also a family of comets for Jupiter). Some of Saturn’s moons are captured comets (Enceladus & Phoebe).
http://www.varchive.org/itb/satcom.htm “The explosion of cometary bodies from Saturn and Jupiter is claimed on the basis of purely astronomical observations and calculations; the circumstances of such explosions must have been admittedly extraordinary; the time when this happened must be measured in thousands of years, not tens of thousands or millions.
Russian astronomer K. Vshekhsviatsky of the Kiev Observatory, one of the leading authorities on comets (‘Worlds in Collision’), has brought strong arguments to show that the comets of the solar system are very youthful bodies—only a few thousand years old—and that they originated in explosions from the planets, especially from the major planets Saturn and Jupiter or their moons.
The sentence in the Tractate Brakhot that ascribes the cause of the Deluge to the cometary bodies that erupted from the planet Saturn no longer appears as fantastic.”
It appears that the writer of Revelations was steeped in ancient astronomy and astrology. He was also likely Greek.
ISON swings around the sun on November 28th, Thanksgiving Day. We think of Thanksgiving as an American holiday, but it has pagan origins (like all holidays). It is an ancient holiday of harvest. The holiday was dedicated to the goddess of harvest, Ceres, and the holiday was called Cerelia. This is where we get the word cereal. On its way back out, ISON comes closest to the Earth on December 26th, the day after Christmas, as things currently stand. We will pass through the comets tail in January of 2014, if it survives its trip around the sun.
The comet ISON could be very dangerous. It has to pass through our asteroid belt which could disturb things there. It could break apart and pose even more of a threat, or we could get hit by debris as we pass through the tail on its way out of our solar system. We certainly will be plummeted with its dust. It could dive into the sun and be destroyed. It could trigger solar flares. It could even have an energetic interaction as it conjuncts with Mars under the head of Leo from September 22 to mid-October. Some are calling the comet theory of just a “dirty snowball” outdated in favor of an electromagnetic universe theory. The comet could move from its projected path for any unseen reason. Or, it could be just a spectacular light show. It is very unpredictable.
But, here is a shocker. I am one who likes to look at meanings of names. For example, Snowden with the help of Greenwald exposed the unconstitutional spying of the NSA sanctioned by the US government. Many of us are watching the series ‘Game of Thrones’. In the show, dire warning of perilous times ahead is given as the statement, “winter is coming”. A tremendous “wall” protects the land of lush green from the frozen wasteland full of zombies. Hence, we have the names Snowed-in and Green-walled sounding the alarm of treacherous times ahead. I have seen this type of name synchronicity many times. The wall could even represent the galactic plane. Being above it gives us 6 Golden Ages of summer and being below it gives us 6 Dark Ages of winter.
I decided to look up the meaning of the names of the two Russians who discovered ISON: Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok.
The name of the first guy, Vitali, means life. His last name, Nevski, is an offshoot of Neva, which is a river in Russia and means “sea” or “water”. Therefore, the name of the first guy breaks down into “Vital or Living Waters”. In Latin, the meaning of Neva is radiance or brightness. In this case his name would mean “alive with radiant brightness”. Scientists are interested in ISON due to a study in how icy comets seed life throughout the universe. Without water there is no life.
The name of the second guy is where it gets horrifying. The name Artyom originates from ARTEMISIOS and means WORMWOOD (a bitter herb). I will repeat that because it is worth driving home.
The name of one of the Russian discoverers of this 3 to 4 mile wide comet with a 200,000 mile tail translates to WORMWOOD.
Revelations 8:10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and on the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
It gets more ominous.
The observatory from where the two Russians discovered this comet is named Kislovodsk Observatory. It is named after its location and Kislovodsk means Sour Waters. In fact, the telescope and Observatory is called in full ISON-Kislovodsk. And thus we have the phrase being equivalent to “comet of bitter waters”.
The guys last name, Novichonok, was a little more difficult but shocking as well. Breaking the name into two parts, the first is Novi.
Novi is also a familiar form of November. Remember, Comet ISON will be in Virgo in November when it first appears to the naked eye. It reaches the sun November 28th at a time when our sun should be in its solar maximum cycle. By this time ISON is expected to become as much as 15 times brighter than our moon due to passing
through hot wind produced by regions along the sun’s equator.
Oddly enough, in November ISON becomes visible to the Mercury-orbiting spacecraft named MESSENGER. The planet Mercury was considered to be the Messenger of the Gods because of its quick orbit.
But, more bizarre still is that “Revelations” in Latin means “to reveal”. Written in an apocalyptic language, it was meant to reveal a message for the end times, an astrological message. How fitting that this spacecraft named MESSENGER circling the planet Mercury would deliver such a message to the world. This is why I find astrotheology so fascinating.
In Abrahamic religions, Archangel Gabriel serves as the messenger of God. Gabriel is also known as the angel of “revelation”. It is Archangel Gabriel who blows a trumpet horn to wake the dead at the Last Judgement. Will ISON be trumpeting?
Novi is also a variant of Nova. In Astronomy, a nova is a star that releases a tremendous burst of energy, becoming temporarily extraordinarily bright. It is believed that a Nova led the shepherds to baby Jesus. Mathew 2:2: “For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Wise men of the bible were astronomers and astrologers.
The second half of his name is Chonok = Searches on this word brings up Chinook which means a warm dry wind which blows down the east side of the mountains at the end of winter causing a rapid rise in temperature. Another name is Fohn (foehn) winds and means snow eater. As you know, the polar ice caps are melting and so are the glaciers, as sea levels rise. This planet, including the oceans, is warming. It is time to consider that it is not due to man’s presence alone.
Carey Lisse at NASA said, “We estimate ISON is emitting about 2.2 million pounds of what is most likely carbon dioxide gas and about 120 million pounds of dust every minute,” and “we now know for sure the comet’s distant activity has been powered by gas.”
In a nutshell, we have a serious (Sirius) 3 to 4 mile wide comet discovered by two Russian discoverers’, one of whose name breaks down into “living waters or “vibrant with radiant brightness”, the second whose first name easily traces back to Wormwood, the name of a devastating comet mentioned in Revelations that hurls stars to the earth and turns the waters bitter, which then happens to be the meaning of the name of the Observatory (sour waters). The guys last name can be broken down to “November and hot dry winds”, matching the month when this comet becomes visible to the naked eye and the fact that it is spewing 2.2 million pounds of the deadly carbon dioxide and 120 million pounds of dust every minute.
Significantly, we are headed into the Age of Aquarius, a.k.a the Sign of the Son of Man. Aquarius pours out waters upon the earth; a time of great floods. This is the zodiac sign for John the Baptist, which will be explained in another article. The Age of Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and is a winter month. Therefore, winter is indeed coming. Because Ages move backwards through the zodiac and because we transverse the galactic plane at an angle, we are crossing the galactic plane at the cusp of Pisces into Aquarius. It seems, and I have no real evidence, that we are moving below the galactic plane and not above it (see image below). We know we are crossing the galactic plane because our sun aligned with the galactic center on December 21, 2012, on cue with the Mayan calendar. There are those who look forward to the return of the rule of Saturn. We are already seeing its effects on society. Its energy is that of fear and control. With each Age lasting about 2 thousand years, it was the sphinx that marked the Golden Age (about 12,000 years ago) when we moved from Virgo into Leo. Moving through the galactic plane during the Age of Aquarius brings many hazards and hence we have our cataclysmic prophecies.
On July 18th 2013 the European Space Agency/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory captured images of the sun showing a very large corona hole on the sun. The sun’s corona is in yellow and the dark area is the corona hole. Corona holes represent open “magnetic field lines” that instead of falling back to the sun, heads out into space as fast solar wind particles blowing at a steady high speed.
Scientists don’t know what causes coronal holes but are quick to tell you not to worry about it. Could this be a reaction to the presence of ISON? And what about the strange humming and sink holes happening around the world. Is the earth shaking?
Revelations is an astounding Astrotheological masterpiece disguised as Christian writing in order to ensure its preservation by the Roman Catholic Church. If they had known what it really was, they surely would have destroyed it. The theme of Revelations is a carry-through of the visions and prophesies of Ezekiel and Daniel. Revelations is, in fact, the book that was handed to Daniel that he was told to seal up for the end time. We read of it being handed to the writer of Revelations. For more info: Astrology and the four horsemen of Revelations.
Imagine the richness of characters, wise men of the sacred sciences, as they plot to cryptically weave their sacred teachings into a document and slip it into the hands of their mortal enemy. Imagine the baffled looks and exchanges of church officials commissioned with compiling religious writings for inclusion into what would become the bible. Articles that do not to conform to their established dogma are rejected. A heated debate ensues. The images are wild and bizarre, they say, who can understand it? All the while, our hero, a double agent, encourages its acceptance into the final draft. It was written by the disciple John, he claims (even though it was written in Greek). Later, he sneaks out, shrouded and under cover of darkness, to report to his huddled and hushed colleagues and coconspirators.
The day comes and tense moments tick out the final decision. Nothing short of the future survival of humanity is at stake. In a nail biting scene straight from an Indiana Jones movie it gets tucked away at the back of the bible in the last hour. Whew! Such intrigue! Brilliant!
In a sort of time capsule motif, 2000 years into the future we see our hero; we’ll call him John, pick up the bible and turn to Revelations. Slowly, through flashes of these past life events, he realizes the astrological message held therein. He tries to warn world leaders of coming cataclysms due to planetary movement occurring in the heavens as laid out in Revelations. The leaders of the Catholic Church discredit and oppose him.
Apocalyptic scenes of earthquakes, volcanos and floods are occurring around the world. A chance meeting unites him with Daniel who has had his own awakening; we’ll call them the two prophets. John remembers the location of a copy that had been secretly sealed away. The two return to Jerusalem and just as they have removed the last stone and John reaches in and touches the scroll with his fingers, goons working for the Catholic Church rush in and arrest them. In route, they are seized upon and fervently stoned to death for blasphemy! For three days their bodies lay in the street as satellites broadcasts the news around the world. And the countdown begins; day one, day two, day three. In the final scene our two friends stand up. A blinding light engulfs them. The light disappears and they are gone! Bystanders are perplexed. Suddenly, a great earthquake! The end.
Artyom is Russian name derived from Greek name Artemisios or Artemisia.
The name “artemisia” ultimately derives from the Greek goddess Artemis. Wormwood is a bitter plant genus of Artemis.
Russian Observatory where comet ISON was discovered is called ISON-Kislovodsk. Kislovodsk means sour waters.
Search on the name Chonok delivers the name Chinook meaning hot dry winds descending from mountains. http://www.islandnet.com/~see/weather/elements/chinook.htm

The Kolbrin bible, a collection of ancient texts, gives what sounds like eyewitness accounts of horrific cataclysms that nearly destroyed the earth and all its inhabitants. It predicts the return of this massive fiery object known to the Egyptians and Hebrews as the “Destroyer”. As you read below, remember that Wise men were Astrologers.
Kolbrin Bible: “Men forget the days of the Destroyer. Only the wise know where it went and that it will return in its appointed hour. It raged across the heavens in the days of wrath, and this was its likeness: it was as a billowing cloud of smoke wrapped in a ruddy glow. Its mouth was an abyss from which came flame, smoke and hot cinders. When ages pass, certain laws operate upon the stars in the heavens. Their ways change; there is movement and restlessness, they are no longer constant and a great light appears redly in the skies. When blood drops upon the earth, the Destroyer will appear, and mountains will open up and belch forth fire and ashes. Trees will be destroyed and all living things engulfed. Waters will be swallowed up by land and seas will boil. The heavens will burn brightly and redly. The people will scatter in madness. They will hear the trumpet and battlecry of the Destroyer and seek refuge within the dens of the earth. Thus it was in the days of heavenly wrath, which has gone, and thus it will be in the days of doom when it comes again. The times and its coming and going are known unto the wise.”
