Can Astrology be Trusted?

Can Astrology be trusted? To find the answer to this question, lets first understand both its definition and origins.

  Astrology is a group of systems, traditions, and beliefs which hold that the relative positions of celestial bodies and related details can provide information about personality, human affairs and other “earthly” matters.

Astrology originated in ancient Mesopotamia after the biblical flood account described in Genesis. Civilization had its second beginning in this region. That includes the religious beliefs, practices and mythology. One of which is astrology. Astrology can be found all over the world because these same people took their religion with them as they spread throughout the world. 

But how was the craft invented? Or more specifically, “Who invented it”?

When God created the Heavens, he had a purpose for the various planets and stars.

Genesis 1

14    Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;
15    and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.

But this isn’t the same as astrology. Also, God specifically speaks against astrology and other forms of religious practices by calling it divination and prohibits his people from practicing it.

Deuteronomy 18

9    “When you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations.
10    There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,
11    or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.
12    For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you.
13    You shall be blameless before the LORD your God.
14    For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.

Deuteronomy 4

19    And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the LORD your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage.

Jeremiah 10

2    Thus says the LORD: ” Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.

So far we see that God is not the one who invented or handed astrology down to mankind. But we do see, from these passages, that God is actually against it. Therefore, whoever invented or handed astrology down to mankind is not a friend of God, nor a servant of God. On the contrary, such a one must be God’s enemy.

Question;

Who in the Bible, does God acknowledge as his enemy?

Genesis 3

1    Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
2    And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden;
3    but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ “
4    Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.
5    For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
14    So the LORD God said to the serpent: ” Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.
15    And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

Revelation 12

7    And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
8    but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
9    So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

From these passages we can clearly see that the enemy of God is Satan.

Now that God’s enemy is identified, lets see if we can also learn…

Who exactly is Satan?

And why did he invent astrology for mankind to live by?

Ezekiel 28

12 You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13     You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14     ” You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15     You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.
16     ” By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones.
17     ” Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor

Isaiah 14

12     ” How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!
13     For you have said in your heart: ‘ I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;
14     I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
15     Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.

Isaiah 42

8     I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.

John 10

10    The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.

John 8

44    You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Based upon these passage, Satan is…

  • A fallen angel
  • Wise
  • Majestic to look upon
  • A thief; He tries to steal worship from the true God by deceiving angels and mankind to worship him instead.
  • A liar
  • A murderer
  • One who desires to be like God
  • One who desires to be worshiped
  • The one who exalted himself above the stars of Heaven.

So where is the connection between what we know of Satan and astrology?

Remember that Satan said this in is heart…

I will ascend into heaven,

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God

I will also sit on the mount of the congregation

On the farthest sides of the north

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds

I will be like the Most High.’

Therefore, Astrology was invented by a lying, murdering, thief. His goal is to deceive the nations and lead them to destruction.That is why Satan invented astrology as well as the other occult religions of the world. In astrology, the stars and planets are gods. This is one of the major ways in which Satan receives worship, because he, as leader of the fallen angels, is honored as the most high god among all of the gods of the cosmos. 

But is astrology even needed???

Remember,

Jeremiah 10

2    Thus says the LORD: ” Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.
3     For the customs of the peoples are futile

Matthew 4
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ “

Therefore, astrology is futile. But the word of God abides forever.

And what word/teaching does God want us to know and live by.

John 3

14    And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15    that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
16    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17    For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18    “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 3

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 5

12    Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned

18    Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
19    For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.

Romans 5

6    For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7    For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.
8    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

John 14

6    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Mark 1

14 “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

1John 2

2    And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

1John 1

8    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10    If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

John 8

12 “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

31    Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
32    And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
34    Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
35    And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.
36    Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

1John 5

18    We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
19    We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20    And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Columbine Child of Darkness

 

Groping in the dark

this child doesn’t know that the lights are out

He’s feeling and touching

Creeping and crawling

He doesn’t know that the viper might strike-out

 *

It’s a lonely dark room

And he has nothing to do

How could he even know

that he needs to be found

*

So he stumbles and play

He’s come a mighty long way

Going nowhere

so no difference does it make

*

His toys are his friends

and some of them are benign and cute

But if it weren’t for the dark

the others would bring terror

Because they’re less toys, than they are spooks

 *

They crawl

They climb

They’re covered in slime

They’re full of venom that can paralyze

And some can kill with one bite

 *

But that won’t be the fate of this little one’s demise

He’s in for a much darker surprise

Because although this child is in the dark

he is anything but alone

Hovering over him is a beast from Sheol

That’s hungry for his soul

 *

He has a devious plan

for this lost son of limbo

That is a spectacular show of terror

To inspire all those like himself

who thrive on darkness’s power

Condemned to rejection’s black isolation

They shall shine in their darkest hour

 *

Chanting the death lullaby

The nursery-rhyme of terror

It’s pain internalized

Turned into evil

Climbing new heights

Knocking down doors

Shooting from the tower

 *

Their persecutors are running for cover

It sounds like murder

It smells like blood

They’re crying out in anger

“Our generation is lost”

 *

Beware of the danger

Take heed to the cross

Christ, the “Risen Savior”

has paid the high cost

For the child who sits in darkness

He is the chief cornerstone

whom the builders cast off

 *

For all of those rejected and isolated

He was stricken and afflicted

Nevertheless he was innocent

Being led like sheep to the slaughter

Even his disciples abandoned him

 *

In isolation he carried our sins

where none would dare to wander

He paid the price for transgressions

He was the “Chief of Martyrs”

*

 Shinning in his darkest hour

Bringing an end to the reign of terror

And redeeming those who thrive on darkness’s power

 *

And the “Gospel of Peace”

 for pain morphed into evil

Secluded to the confines of the lonely dark tower

It sounds like redemption

Is it the end of deprivation

It smells like a new creation

For all those who sit in darkness

The Lord and his Christ

Has become their salvation

Modern Day Idols

It’s easy to mock ancient cultures for their love of carved images and the mythology that surrounded them. But do we understand why the ancient civilizations were so passionate about their false gods? Or are we too quick to pass judgment upon those who we are not able to understand? Do we really know what made these ancient idols so alluring? And are there any objects of love and devotion in our own lives that we may not have compared to the archaic forms of idolatry?

First, “Why the ancient civilizations were so passionate about their false gods?”

The answer is the same for them as it is for us.

Romans 1

18    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
21    because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22    Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23    and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
28 …they did not like to retain God in their knowledge…

So according to Scripture, the reason for the ancient people’s love for their idols, started with their rejection of the true God and everything that they knew about him. They took him for granted by not being thankful for his life sustaining grace.

They also thought they were wise enough to reinvent God. This made them fools since true wisdom is found in the fear of the Lord, and their rebellion was the exact opposite of the fear of the Lord. The result was a love for the work of their own hands, opinions, imaginations, and high-mindedness, which exalted itself about the wisdom and knowledge of the true God.

And what was the result of these sins?

Romans 1

24    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves

28    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29    being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30    backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31    undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32    who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Now that’s was the ancient world. But what about us today?

Understand that the love of false gods is rooted in the rejection of the true God.

Do we reject the knowledge of the true God?

Are we ungrateful and take him for granted?

Are we wise in our own eyes, and even think that we are equal with God?

Do we love the work of our own hands?

Do we exalt our own opinions, imaginations, and high-mindedness above the knowledge of God?

Has God delivered us over to all uncleanness?

And do we delight in, and praise, those who do the same?

And do we idolized them, saying, “He’s my idol” or “She’s my idol”?

All of this is modern day idolatry.

But is idol worship really all that bad? After all, it comes so naturally to us!

How does God feel about idol worship?

Exodus 20

3    ” You shall have no other gods before Me.
4    ” You shall not make for yourself a carved image — any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5    you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6    but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

1Corinthians 10

14    Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
19    What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything?
20    Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.
21    You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.
22    Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

Therefore, behind every idol is a demon.

So when we worship idols we’re actually worshiping demons.

1Corinthians 6

9    Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
10    nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

1John 5

18    We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
19    We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20    And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Have you come across a different Gospel and a different Christ?

Here are the signs of…

…A different gospel and a different Christ

First, it is the doctrine of the occult, which teaches

You don’t need to seek God.

Just look within; to the christ in you.

We are all little christs

You can create your own reality with the words you speak, your heart felt desires and the power of your will.

You are responsible for everything that has happened in your life, whether good or bad.

You determine your own destiny.

Man is god.

Christ came to earth to make men gods.

God’s desire is for you to be a winner in this life, and for your earthly dreams to come true.

Jesus Christ never claimed to be God.

God, the creator, is the biggest failure in the universe.

God cannot do anything in this world without our permission.

We give him permission through our prayers and positive confession.

However, this isn’t the God of Scripture.

That “god” sounds more like a fallen angel; namely Satan.

But according to the occult’ doctrine, the god of the occult is “Satan”.

And the occult’ “christ” is the antichrist.

Therefore, this shows that these TV preachers knowingly worship Satan, since they teach all of these doctrines, as shown in this video.

1John 2

15    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16    For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.
17    And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
26    These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
27    But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

1John 5

19    We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20    And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

2John 1

7    For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
8    Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.
9    Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
10    If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him;
11    for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

After trotting under foot

They multiply and spread

Resistance is futile

*

So the war must finally end

A foe unstoppable

What is a king to do?

For a doctrine, other worldly

It’s death over life they’ll always choose

 

Mock, exile and torture

Will only make them stronger

Hunt, entrap and slaughter

Their faith will never falter

*

Now take a different course

Brute force will not prevail

Go down into their dungeon

And free them from their jail

*

Tell them all is well

And that you have seen the light

Elevate their position

Let them spread their wings in flight

*

 

Lavish on them wealth

Merge your power with their craft

Make of them kingly priests

Forsaking their lowly pass

*

Harness their beliefs

Shape them to your purpose

Let them preach it to the masses

And the teachings make conversions

*

A confederacy of kings

Once divided, now united

Anointed by the father

It’s Caesar reemerging

*

Garbed in holy vestments

Trading toga for Triple Crown

The unstoppable foe is conquered

He has cast them to the ground

Stomp them down at last

Other worldly doctrine deposed

Thinking him to be their savior

He’s become their little horn.

2Thessalonians 2

3 “…the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
4    who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

Daniel 7

“…Shall persecute the saints of the Most High…”

The Slippery Slope

There is an organized effort to take society down a slippery slope.

It starts with the portrayal of monsters as innocent.

And safe for children.

It makes the longtime villain appear warmhearted.

And even desirable.

It teaches children that witchcraft can be very helpful if they use it correctly.

It tries to make everyone sympathetic toward child molesters.

Serial killers

And even turn murderers into heroes.

Yes. Even psychopathic, mother rapping, serial killers, such as Nero. Who also invented creative ways of torturing and killing Christians for his personal entertainment.

It even promotes the evil that God has forbidden until it is accepted by the masses and called good.

But WHY all of this promotion of wickedness as good???

So that we will no longer consider God’s ultimate villain as evil.

And, instead, come to see him as noble.

All knowing

Powerful

A loving protector

And a god that is worthy of worship.

But who is behind this evil plot???

You don’t have to look far to find out.

It is the same organization that changed western civilization from a monarchy to a democracy, and has even founded our own country; the USA. Yes the vast majority of our founding fathers were Freemasons. But who do the Freemasons worship?

“Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!” [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff]

Ephesians 5

7Therefore do not be partakers with them. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14 Therefore He says: ” Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.”

1John 5

18We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
