The REAL Story In The Stars: Mazzaroth Series Part 1

REAL Story In The Stars: Part 1 

Psalm 19
“19 The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
2 Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world.”

For 2,500 years there was no written word of God.  Nevertheless, the wonderful story of the Gospel, of the Champion He would send, was passed down from father to son.  Was it simply oral tradition, as some maintain?  Yes and no.  You see, though it was not recorded on paper or writing tablets, God “wrote” the Gospel story in the night sky.  People of ancient times not only how to read it; they knew what it meant and now you can, too!

Not Astrology!
This beautiful love letter to us is NOT astrology but THE REAL STORY as our Heavenly Father Himself wrote it.
Astrology, the devil’s counterfeit, is nothing more than another in a long line of varied and pathetic attempts to pervert the REAL story:  The One told by The One about THE ONE…..JESUS!  I certainly hope it goes without saying that Christians have NO business dabbling in horoscopes and astrology! The stars DO NOT rule our lives.  The Bright and Morning Star, JESUS, does.  AMEN!

Jesus Preached The Gospel To Abram.
In Genesis 15, God addressed Abram saying to him, “I Am your shield and great reward.”  He then took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.  So shall your SEED be. 6 Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”

Count?  You mean like count all the stars:  1, 2, 3, 4, 5…..2,872, 2,873, 2,874…..like that?  I used to read that and it think so.  But it doesn’t really make sense that you can learn about the story of Jesus just by counting all the stars in the sky, does it?   So what did Jesus mean?  Let’s do a little word study.

Translator Issues.
The translation in this passage is a bit “unfortunate,” shall we say.  The word for “count” in Hebrew used here is the word: “Saphar.”  It means “to count, recount or relate,” meaning, “If you can recount, or tell, the story in the stars, so shall your “Descendant be.”

Notice I didn’t say, “Descendants,” plural?  Here again in this verse, the translation of the original Hebrew ,, once again, unfortunate.  The word translated as “descendants–plural” is actually not plural. The Hebrew word used here is “Zera,” which means “seed.”  It’s referring to Abram’s offspring or Seed, Jesus.  It is SINGULAR.  Jesus is The Seed Who would come from Abraham’s own body.  This refers back to Genesis 3 where God said that “The SEED of the woman” would crush the serpent’s head.

Jesus is actually speaking here.  He “recounted, or told, the story in the stars to Abraham, the story of the Champion, the Dragon Slayer, his own DESCENDANT: (SINGULAR), Who would come in the fullness of time.  What Abram “saw” in the stars was irrefutable proof.  He believed God and THAT belief was credited to him as righteousness.”  It was the very same gospel that you and I believe.  The only difference is that he lived long before the cross.

Abram Believed God.

”Galatians 3 says that Jesus “preached to Abram” the gospel story.  How did He do that?  By “saphar–recounting” the story blasted all over the night sky!  Awesome!

Galatians 3:5-9 “Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?—6 just as ABRAHAM “BELIEVED GOD, and it was ACCOUNTED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” 7 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, PREACHED THE GOSPEL TO ABRAHAM beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” 9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with (along with) believing Abraham.”

See? It says God (Jesus) “PREACHED THE GOSPEL” to him.  He did by showing him the story written in the night sky.

Psalm 19.

This same word, “saphar,” used here in Genesis 15 is the same word translated, “Declare,” in Psalm 19: “The heavens “declare (saphar)” the glory of God…..”

There is a portion of scripture where Abram is told that his descendants (plural) will be as numerous as the stars in Genesis 22. That passage does talk about the numbers of his “descendants-plural,” referring to nature Israel.  But such is not the case in Genesis 15.  Jesus came as a Jew and, although blessing to the whole world did and does come through the Jewish people, Jesus is THE ONE through Whom all those blessings flow.
The REAL Story In The Stars.

So what is the REAL  story in the stars?  Let’s begin at the beginning by going back to the oldest book of all:  Job.

The first time the LORD spoke directly to Job is recorded in chapter 38 where He mentions the morning stars singing together in vs. 7.

Then God asked him in vs. 31-2: 31, “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades? Can you loosen Orion’s belt? 32 Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?”

He is speaking here of the constellations: The seven stars of the Pleiades and constellations of Orion and the Bear.  The word for constellations in Hebrew is “Mazzaroth.” It means “Zodiac,” again, not astrology.  It is the original story as God created it:  To tell the marvelous story of His Son.  He literally blasted the story of Redemption FROM ONE END OF THE HEAVENS TO THE OTHER!
Evil Invention.
Why did the devil invent astrology?  Because he hates God.  He also hates man–believers in particular–because we are made in His image.
You see, He knows that man, whom God made in His image, is beloved of God and so valuable to Him as to be beyond price.  Now, he cannot strike at God directly so he does the next best thing:  He strikes at us.
He perverted the gospel story so that man would deceived into not accepting the Lamb of God, Jesus, sends God’s beloved creation to hell.  That hurts God more than we can comprehend!  He doesn’t want us to learn the truth, get saved and spread the good news to the whole world.
Now you know why he also hates Israel so much because The Dragon Slayer came into the world as a Jew.  He figured, ERRONEOUSLY, that if he could pervert the story, perhaps he would be able to stop the birth of The Dragon Slayer and stop Him FROM CRUSHING HIS HEAD!
Well…..He FAILED:  UTTERLY AND COMPLETELY!

Reading The Story In The Stars.

The real story does not begin with the constellation of Aries the ram as astrology of today would have you believe.  It begins with Virgo, the Virgin.  Look back into the history of the constellations you’ll find that ancient depictions of Virgo have her sitting down with a small male child on her lap, as pictured above. She also held a stalk of both wheat and corn in one hand.  Jesus is that small child on her lap. He is the bread of life.  He is the grain of wheat which, when it falls into the earth, it dies, typifying His death which would bring salvation to the world.

Since the story begins with Virgo, then it must end with Leo, the lion!  Matthew, the FIRST book of the New Testament, is the FIRST to recount the VIRGIN BIRTH of our Savior.  Revelation, the LAST book of the New Testament, is where Jesus is first called “THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.”  He is the triumphant King Who crushed the head of the great dragon; our enemy, satan.
HALLELUJAH!!!  Jesus is the FIRST and Jesus is the LAST!
Tell me:  Where do we find all the stories of Jesus both before and after the cross?  In the New Testament.  What does that tell you?  That the story above our heads in the stars is the entire New Testament!  
It serves as one of the many confirmations to His natural family, Israel, that the 27 books of the New Testament are the HOLY WORD OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
There are many other confirmation and clues left for the Jewish people to find, proving that the New Testament is Holy Writ.  Below is a link to another one of those clues, hidden in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament:

A Clue To Jesus’ Actual Birthday?

The constellation Virgo appears in the month of September, in case you were unaware. Know what Jewish feast is celebrated in September?   The Feast of Tabernacles: Sukkot!

How very interesting!  John 1:14 it says, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling (TABERNACLED) among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

The word “tabernacle” refers to the physical body. Ours, for example, are temples or “tabernacles” of the Holy Spirit.

(For more on the story of His birth and some little known, but fascinating history about the Inn, follow this link:

The Night Sky.

Now, let’s dial back the night sky to the time of Jesus’ birth. The feast of tabernacles that year occurred on Sept. 20th. Hmmm……do you think that could be Jesus’ real birthdate?  Yes, as a matter of fact, I do!

Now let’s scroll forward to the feast of Passover the year that Jesus died.  Care to guess in which month the feast fell?
April…..and what is the sign for April?
The Ram!
Jesus was the male Lamb, or Ram, that was sacrificed. Wow!!! Talk about the accuracy of scripture!  Everything lines up with God’s word, even the stars!

This article is barely the tip of the iceberg. The whole story would literally fill volumes!  It’s kind of like a 3-act play with 48 scenes.

Why 12 Constellations?

12 us an interesting number.  There are 12 constellations for the 12 sons of Jacob.  Each tribe in ancient Israel was represented by one of these 12 constellations.  The tribe of Levi, for example, was charged with the “balances of the sanctuary,” hence “Libra” typifies them. Judah, no surprise, is represented by “Leo,” the Lion of the tribe of Judah, since Jesus, THE LION of the tribe of Judah, came from that tribe.

Why Did God Confuse The Language Of Men?

The key as to why God had to confuse the languages of the people over the issue of the Tower of Babel is directly related to story in the stars. If you’d like to know more about that topic, follow this link to the story of “Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.”:  https://emmausroadministries.wordpress.com/2016/03/03/the-tower-of-babel/
Understandably, this whole topic is a little bit touchy for some because the devil perverted the real story.  Many believers are hesitant as a result to learn the truth.  Nonetheless, the beautiful, awesome, incomprehensible story is still written there in the night sky for us to see and to be blessed by it.  It’s just further confirmation of how much we are loved by God and another of the many reasons why He can say unequivocally that “all are without excuse.”  Everyone knows there is a God, whether they admit it or not.  He says so.
I write about it because I hate that the Church has been robbed of the blessing this wonderful story brings, this love letter from our Daddy, just for us!  Today, of course, we have the written word of God and no longer need to rely on the stars to tell the gospel story.  But it is still there!
And that, Church, is THE REAL STORY IN THE STARS!
Please follow the link below to Part 2.  We’ll discuss the real reason God confused the language of men:
