Why Christian Astrology?

 

    

     We have proof that God created the stars on purpose, for a reason.  In the very beginning, in Genesis 1:14-19, we read:

14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day.

 

     Christian Astrology is the practice of observing the skies and reading what God has written there, as we were so commanded by Jesus of Nazareth, whom we believe to be the Christ, the Son of God, and the Messiah of this world. 

     Matthew 24:30 And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.

    The end purpose of our study, and our life work, is to become more Christlike; to cultivate those traits and characteristics which are most like Him and to weed out those which do not reflect His divine nature, thus making ourselves a welcome place for Him to dwell.  To do so we may wisely study the stars, their names and relationships, to see therein His character.

     The problem many good Christians have with the science of astrology is threefold: (always a trinity!) first, that it is believed to have been taught by fallen angels to women; second, that it has been corrupted in passing down the millennia; and third that it puts power into the hands of the individual believer as opposed to the church.

     Yet Scripture tells us plainly that Isaiah, Abraham, and the apostles were expected to know enough about the stars to understand Gods references to them.  God rebuked Job with a reference to His glory and power.  "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?  Can you set their dominion over the earth?" (Job 38 31-33).  That last mention of the stars having dominion over the earth is inarguable.  God said it Himself!

     This also demonstrates that Baraqiel had little to nothing to do with creating, naming, or placing the stars.  His one claim to fame may have been retelling the stories associated with them down through the ages, with the diverse details and myths attached.  Here he was doing Gods will without realizing it, in passing on to us many of the distracting details which plague us.  We will be going into this at length!!

     Lastly, many churches which arose after our Lord ascended into heaven are Christian in name only; they like the power they have over the lives and behavior of others, and they jealously want to hold on to that power. They misconstrue what Scripture says to their congregation about the origin and purpose of astrology, and refuse to allow their sheep the freedom to know and follow the Good Shepherd.

     In passages which they cite to condemn astrology, they deliberately obfuscate what God is condemning.

     Deuteronomy 4:19 reads: And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and bow down to them and serve them, things that the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.

    In Amos 5:8, we are told to 'seek Him that made the seven stars and Orion,' the seven stars synonymous with the seven planets, and Orion the great constellation of stars most recognizable by his three starred belt.

     Isaiah announces that ignoring the advice of astrologers, stargazers, and monthly prognosticators is a serious peril, for you are trying to ignore the commands of God. This is a fate from which none, not even yourself, can save you. We suspect that these multitude of counsels of 'astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators' did not go down with the ship!!

     'For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

      This condemns the worship of the Sun or Moon or stars, not the observance!

     We all of us use tools; some of us use jackhammers and some tongue depressors; some of us use paint or cello or graphics. No one of us worships our tools. No one of us prays to our tools. We all know that we are the ones conceiving the inspiration, and executing the work. The tool is a tool, nothing more. As are the planets, stars, and all things in creation; good tools with which to serve a loving and beautiful God!


 

    Perhaps the most important book of our day is that of the Revelation of John of Patmos, commonly called the Apocalypse of John

    We find so much to encourage us to study the heavens and takes its daily lessons to heart in this book!!

   Jesus even wrote letters to the angels of the planets, which are recorded in Revelation.  He further mentions the twelve signs of the zodiac as the children of Israel.   

    In Revelation 5:12, we read the whole heavenly host of angels proclaim that at the Lamb That Was Slain is to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.  Obviously that Lamb That Was Slain is Jesus;  the whole heavenly host is the zodiac.  Jesus is being worshiped by the stars themselves!

   Jesus says:

     "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I Am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright Morning Star."

 

       Here is positive and uncompromising proof in Jesus own words: He is the Morning Star. (Revelations 22:16.)

 

     In 2 Peter, 1:19, the chief disciple and first Apostle promises us that one day, the Morning Star will rise in our hearts. What great good news!

 

     Christian astrology unfolds the lessons of the heavens and makes them plain to those who have an eye to see, and an ear to hear, and know the voice of their Shepherd!!

 

     We joyfully and humbly invite you to partake with us! 

 

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained;" (Psalm 8:3) 

 

Psalms 147:4-5 say, "He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. Great is our Lord, and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite." 

 

 

Luke 10:20 - Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven."

 

Isaiah 40:26 - Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing."

 

Psalm 147:4 says, " He determines the number of the stars; He gives to all of them their names. "

 

Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?  Can you set their dominion over the earth?  Job 38 31-33
