A weird astronomy but not fruity question...

Post by SoulJah on Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:34 am

G'day all,
First, I just want to explain that I am not in anyway into astrology or anything like that AT ALL. But I have a question to ask. You know in the Gospels where it talks about the magi right, and it speaks about the bethlehem star. Well I was curious as to its meaning, so I looked it up, and found out its importance as to why the heck someone would travel all that distance. What they saw was the planet jupiter in the constellation aries, which meant that a divine king was going to be born in judea etc. Ok, now, i'm trying to be careful how I say this because I know how it may come across. Because I know that back in those days people could read the bible just by looking at the stars like it was a language, not like today where it has been corrupted as it were. ANYWAY, my question is, do you think that God still uses the stars to send messages to us? I'm not talking astrology mumbo jumbo, I mean fully God stuff. I mean, it says that in the last days there will be signs in the sky and all that right? Any idea's on that? I wa sjust curious is all because my brain just twigged tonight as I looked into the sky because I saw that jupiter was in the consellation saggittarius in the west and was wondering if there was some kind of significance to that is all.
Thanks, and hopefully this doesn't come off the wrong way!

Hello everyone,

I want to add something here... Maybe a little off the course but being a sailor..... For many many centuries God taught man how to sail using the stars for navigation & I would assume also for travel at night on land... So they were more in tune with the stars & seasons.. Also their lives evolved around the seasons (due to agrilculture)... It just depends on how you are using the stars....

Just had to add that & also I believe & know God will get across what He wants to say to anyone; however, He chooses to do it... I believe it is about the heart & just what butterfly was saying about who are you seeking...

You have to be very careful about astology, divination & worldly seeking because there are some wicked spirits behind that stuff, You don't want to open a door to the devil.... Seek God & you will be alright... He is first...

I agree also but would like to add one more thing......It is important to note that He is our Lord, King and Ruler and can use any method possible to get our attention....Yes He can use the stars and many other ways to communicate with us.

It says in His word that no one is without excuse on judgement because even His creation testifies to the truth.

Hope that helps,

It's an interesting question isn't it, like the previous posts I certainly agree about astrology/witchcraft etc for sure. I love that verse that says "the heavens declare the glory of God" and everytime I whip out the telescope I wholeheartedly agree. Its hard to imagine if you live in the city (or suburbs) but I went deep down south in australia a few years ago and the sky was blanketed with stars, you could see the blue hue of the milky way it was amazing!
At the end of the day I believe discernment is the key, if there are going to be signs in the sky like the Bible says then i'm sure the Holy Spirit will give us a heads up =).
I wouldn't mind a city wide black out every now and then however, then I could see the stars better that's for sure ;).

Yes, and also, remember that Jesus Christ is described as the Bright and Morning Star. I know that God wants us to come to Him for wisdom, because stars like everything else are created and do not have all power. To give them credit for foreseeing future events is to worship them by saying that they can and do tell us the hidden things, which only God can do.

Well, let me tell you about all the weird dates in my own life.

Mom knew she was pregnant on April Fools Day, I was born between the cusp of Saggitarius and Capricorn (meaning that according to the weird astrologists, I'm uber special) which is also the first day of winter. I was brought home on New Years. Both dad and grandpa both died on father's day ten years apart.

You must not adhere to star signs and such because that is astrology which God himself forbids. Being born on a certain day don't mean a thing although astrologists wants people to believe that. In terms of the weird dates when someone dies that happens sometimes to some people, I don't know why, only God knows.

I don't put stock into it, I just find it ironic. Your right, though. :)
