Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5)
Following fast upon recent cosmologic phenomena — not to mention Mideast political and nuclear meltdowns — we find the mid-October sun lion, vast dark umbra splotched ‘cross very heated brow. The umbra forms a recumbent, horned demon with something (trumpet, flagon, megaphone?) held to mouth.
The solar snapshot reveals a characteristically low leonine nose, and slitted mouth, while the black umbra sports a prominent erection, and a long black tail, perhaps obscuring the right solar ‘eye’. The slithertail terminates pointedly, or at least bulbous. Long, thin feet caper a cranial Pan-dance.
Likewise, the continental African profile contains a horn and eye, with twin horns/eyes possible. (Madagascar is the near-mouth object.)
Posts herein investigated the solar nature and imagery of terrestrial Nimrod, rebellious founder of Babylon and related cities, and of Ashur, perennial middle-eastern sky-deity. Obama’s first campaign logo was blatantly solar and self-messianic. Lions, of course, correlate with both ancient Babylon and Africa.
Obama’s closest advisors — females — are Iranian and Saudi, and he’s been cutting nuke deals with Iran, while Israel and the Mideast brace for war. Russia creeps south.
By similar coin-key-dink, the Lion and Sun signet happens to have
. . . had “a unique success” among icons for signifying the modern Iranian identity, in that the symbol is influenced by all significant historical cultures of Iran and brings together Zoroastrian, Shia, Jewish, Turkic and Iranian symbolism. . . Similarly, the lion too has always had a close association with Iranian kingship. (Source, Wikipedia)

When Scripture cites the ‘prince of Persia’ it means a specific spiritual entity of great antiquity, assigned governorship over a postdiluvial territory or, roughly, nation. This ruling Persian angel may possess the expected muslim ‘Mahdi’ or messiah, who is anti-Christ in spirit if not in person.
Isaiah, in Chapter 24, prophesies the Day of the LORD, when ‘the earth is utterly broken down’. Isaiah predicts divine judgment above and below:
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
The ‘host of the high ones’ are celestial spirits associated with, or animating, the spheres of the heavens.
In the Book of Daniel, the Prince of Persia attempts to detain response to Daniel’s prayer to God, thus preventing Cyrus’ mind from entertaining the idea of a rebuilt Hebrew temple . . . the temple (however diminished and degraded) eventually defended by King Jeshua himself.
. . . sufficient motivation to stir satan’s lieutenant! They didn’t want the King in that Second temple, and they don’t want the King sitting in the Millennial Temple in Jerusalem, either. That would spell doom for The Choom! :O)
In Isaiah, the spirit of the sun literally is embarrassed or ashamed, partly because of past activities, and partly from beholding the effortless, and tremendous, glory of Christ on his Throne. Stars and galaxies (and black wholes!) are very small things beside God.
Given Barry Soetoro, America’s leader instead adopted Barack Hussein Obama. Another jewel in his crowning achievement of Fundamentally Transforming America — the Iran Nuke Deal — is officially adopted into effect on Sunday, October 18, six times three.
We need not attach permanent evil to Earth’s sun, as that is presumption, and this post is partly speculation. Evidence indicates that various cultures used, and still use, ‘Sol’ for idolatrous and wicked purposes. Apparently the LORD is employing this star as another ‘sign in the skydome’ to show us the truth of current events, and to comfort us that nothing can be hidden from his holiness. And that by no means will we be left in darkness, without hope.
Praise God for his patience with, and love of, such as us.
