Bible Study: Witness of the stars

Psalm 19:1-6 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handy work. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.”

Psalm 147:1-5 “Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely. The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.”

The Hebrew word for what we now call the Zodiac is Mazzeroth (meaning “12 signs). When we look to the pre-Babylonian definitions given to the “pictures” of the Mazzeroth, we see that God had indeed written His Gospel in the stars as a sign for mankind. It was only in the time of the Tower of Babel, and of the following Babylonian, pagan based and re-interpreted astronomy that the pictures were re-defined to have pagan meanings. The original meanings assigned to the 12 major signs (each with 3 minor signs accompanying them were as follows:
