Truth Series Part 1
As stated in my previous post, in order to find the Truth about something, we need to find its origin. The Zodiac, which is a Greek word meaning “Circle of animals” was developed in Egypt and later adopted by the Babylonians. It originated 5000 years ago. So some wise guy decided to believe that the constellations in the sky somehow affects our daily lives. How this occurs, don’t ask me! Practically, the earth spins around the sun, and whatever constellation of stars that creates a straight line determines what Zodiac sign is in that month since a complete revolution is one year. Look at the illustration below…
Now, if you look carefully, you would find 13 constellations, not 12. Why? Let me guess…
Because there was always 13 constellations, even 5000 years ago! The Babylonians had ignored the 13th constellation to entertain the study of astrology. Please understand that there is a difference between astronomy and astrology. We must not confuse the two. The wise men did not worship the stars. The stars give direction in terms of navigation, it does not give direction in life…
Astronomy is a natural science that studies celestial objects and phenomena. It applies mathematics, physics, and chemistry, in an effort to explain the origin of those objects and phenomena and their evolution.
Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events
While astronomy glorifies the Creator for His creation, astrology worships creation and treats it as a creator.
We must be careful what we believe because it can keep us in bondage. Now, that we know that there are 13 constellations, we must understand that the cycle of the constellations are now different. 5000 years ago, you may have been Aries but today you are Pisces. This means that nobody is the right star sign! Without the 13th constellation, Ophiuchus, every sequence of the horoscope is distorted and completely untrue. It is also vital that we need to understand that every star sign is named after a Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods. I’m really sorry to say this to you but if you believe in the divination readings of these horoscopes, you are actually serving another god. You are actually giving another god (Which is Satan) control over your life. They are speaking over your life another story than the one that God (Jesus) is saying. You might say that you read a horoscope and it was true or it came to pass but in actual reality, the devil is having a field day with you and is trying to take you away from God.
I once read in a magazine that if you add the digits of your cell phone number, they could tell me what was happening in my life. They could describe your personality as well. My cellphone number digits summed up to 7. According to that number in the magazine, I was ‘spiritual’.
“Wow!” I thought, “This actually works…”
Then I read the instruction which said, “You are going into a new relationship because the current one isn’t working out.”
Which is strange because I had never been in a relationship since I was still in primary school. So sorry, not sorry.
Astrology is demonic because as soon as you believe what they say, you give the devil some control.
Here are some Bible verse about astrology…
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 “When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.
Deuteronomy 18:10-14 “You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. “For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so.
