Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Message in the Stars

Psalm 19:1- “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”

As my husband drives, one of my favorite things to do is watch the moon and stars, thanking God for these beautiful points of light created so long ago for our pleasure.

But the Bible tells us that they have also been put in the skies to declare God’s presence and glory.

If you are “into” astrological signs, keep reading.

I am betting you aren’t aware that the entire story of creation through the events in the book of Revelation have been written in the stars so that we would know of God’s great love.

Here are some fascinating books that go into this amazing truth in great detail. Warning: you will not be able to put them down:

The Real Meaning of the Zodiac by Dr. James Kennedy (out of print, but you may find in church libraries or used bookstores. Originally printed in a special TBN edition).

The Heavens Declare by William D. Banks.

Witness of the Stars by E.W. Bullinger.

The Gospel in the Stars by Joseph A. Seiss.

God Sent You a Valentine!

Romans 1:20- “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.”

In the very stars of heaven, God proclaims his great love for us.

God sent us a Valentine!!

His love knows no bounds. His message is written in His Word and in the heavenly bodies of the universe. That’s right!  They aren’t just beautiful creations of light hung there for our enjoyment. (Although that was certainly part of His intent).

They were, in fact, put there to tell God’s story of His love, and plan of redemption.

Quite some time ago, my mother-in-law gave me the most fascinating book by the late James Kennedy called, The Real Meaning of the Zodiac. It contains his well-documented research, as well as that of eight other well-known Bible scholars. It is an astounding account of God’s love.

The book was printed as a special TBN Edition in 1989 and one of their most requested publications ever. In it, Dr. Kennedy unfolds the timeless story of God’s love—His Gospel in the stars.

The Bible tells us that He called all of the stars “the host of heaven,” that He numbered them, ordered them, and set them in the firmament to be signs. (Although their original meaning has been corrupted into something counterfeit by astrologers.)

His marvelous masterpiece, the art gallery of God, depicts the message of redemption revealing to man the account of the coming, suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

That’s right. The way of salvation is revealed beautifully for us in the heavens!

Dr. Kennedy begins the explanation of the true Zodiac with Virgo, or the Virgin and the birth of the incarnate Son of God. He continues the “great celestial preaching of the Gospel” with the other eleven signs, ending with Leo, The Lion, which depicts Christ’s victory over sin, the world, and Satan.

By citing specific scripture for each sign, Dr. Kennedy reminds us that God has done all of this so that we might know of God’s love…that we might know His son as our savior, and so that the glory of Jesus and his redemption might fill our hearts with wonder and praise.

He loves me. He loves you.

He has told us so in His Word, in the heavens, and by sending us the gift of salvation through his son, Jesus.

May you never look at the night sky in quite the same way again.

It is His Valentine to mankind.
