The Christian Meaning Behind the Zodiac

Real Estate Agent with Holiday Realty of Central Oregon

This is a recommended reading by me. It is an awesome book and will give depth and meaning to anyones walk with the Lord.

 When my grandmother passed away, I found a book she had that was called, "The Gospel in the Stars". At the time I found it, it was out of print, but have since found some reprints of the book. It is by Joseph A. Seiss. There are some others out there too, but I like the way the one by Seiss is put together.

The book goes into detail about the meaning of the constellations and how they tell the whole gospel story. Before there were books, what better way for God to teach Adam and his descendants about God's plan. After all, God created the constellations and the bible says that all creation speaks of the glory of God.

Satan has taken a truth and twisted it for his own good, thus we have the twisted version of the zodiac and astrology. We need to be able to understand the true meaning behind the constellations and use it for God's glory. In fact, I have used this book when people talk about their zodiac sign. I turn to the one they were born under and read to them what the true meaning is and how it relates to God's salvation for all mankind.

It is a great book and there is a lot of information in it. It even talks about the names of the stars in the constellations and their meanings which helps define what the constellation stands for. In his book he even refers to some of the old religions and Greek mythology and where it originated. All of it comes from the stories behind the constellations which are all parts of the gospel story. They have just twisted it into something of the enemy and away from God's original intent. This is truly a must read!

I am awed by the details of God's creation and how He is in everything we see if we are willing to see it!

Interesting. When I was in Bible School one of the lessons on the OT revolved around how Daniel was a Magi (used mightily by God) and that the 3 Kings were coming to find the Savior as predicted by Daniel. They were following the stars. It is believed that the star of Bethlehem was a comet pointing the way.

I didn't look into it any farther. My instructor didn't camp out on it as much as he brought it up to show that God can use anything, even the heavens, to bring glory to his name.

Humm, sounds far out to me, but I guess since god did make all the stars, that indeed is far out too.  I will have to read it sometime.

Bob, I think the key is to divorce "Astrology" from what God can reveal about himself thorough His created work. I haven't read the book mentioned and not sure to what degree I would agree with it if I did, but I do know that God is God and that His word says that creation speaks of His presence.

I would have to piggyback on Larry's comment.  It sounds interesting...maybe on the borderline of far out (who's to say...I haven't read it yet).  Again, based on the fact that HIS creation speaks of HIS presence I might have to read it before I knock it.
