There is much that can be said concerning people's beliefs in these last days. "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils" (I Timothy 4:1). We can see that rampant throughout society, but I don't believe that we identify these occurrences as being tied to the scriptures. A lot has become topsy turvy nowadays from the way we speak to the way we think towards established, known things. It was my intention to currently write on this. But, I read this book, The Witness of The Stars, some years ago. When I get ready to write upon these times we're in, I intend to reread this book for it.
The book of Job is about my favorite book of the Bible possibly. Job speaks of the heavenly constellations, which is called Mazzaroth by him. A few groups of stars are mentioned in his discourse, and that intrigued me. The book of Job is said to have been written around the time of the patriarch Abraham, making it the earliest book of the Bible. These people of antiquity were CRAZY smart. When one believes in the word of God, one gets away from other beliefs that are not of God. Therefore, I don't particularly believe in Neanderthals. God created man highly intelligent, for he was to have dominion over this world that God created (Genesis 1:26). (Those who have Reruns know that I touch on this all in the eighth chapter entitled "Life.”) So in doing so, God created man with the intelligence to identify and understand what all God created and its purpose. Man was very knowledgeable.
This work, therefore, which is entitled, The Witness of The Stars, Amens the book of Genesis' account. "And God said, 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also" -Genesis 1:14-16
That last, small line – "he made the stars also"—is what God gave this man to write about. Astronomy is the study of the stars, but astrology is a corrupt usage of that. God placed messages in the heavens, and men of antiquity had the intelligence to recognize and understand them. To not spoil this book's content for anyone who's interested, the author goes through each constellation (zodiac sign in today's lingo). According to the scripture, as he pinpoints, the sun appears to circle through each cluster of stars, known as constellations (Psalm 19:1-6 emphasis on all the verses but in particular verse 6). When the sun completes its circuit through the constellations (or the earth’s orbit around the sun), that makes a year. The author begins with the cluster of stars known as the Virgo constellation, and he ends with the constellation known as Leo. Now to prove that men of antiquity all were intelligent in different regions of the world, seeing and interpreting the same information the same (he better highlights this in the book), when examining the "riddle of the Spinx," this is what we have – a figure that begins with a woman's head (the sign Virgo) and ends with a lion's tail (the sign Leo). The Egyptians, who were involved in polytheism (the worship of many gods) and sun worship, even recognized the message of the heavens unto them.
The book is replete with scripture. I could say more, but I've said enough. There is an absolute message that God placed in the stars. It’s interesting. Don’t get caught up in how the Devil wants you to view and utilize things. If interested, support local bookstores, and purchase here: https://bookshop.org/a/56410/9781505784947
