THE MESSAGE IN THE MAZZAROTH

 By Evan Wiggs

Ed. Note Seiss "Primeval Astrology" and Bullinger "The Witness in the Stars" are the main source for this study. Both have been criticized for their lack of documentation. In Seiss's supplement he mention's such sources at the List of Hipparchus and the Almagest of Ptolemy or the Celestial Chart of Royer published in 1679. He goes on to say ".these men were not giving the constellations as then to be seen and identified on the heavens, but as handed down in the most ancient astronomical traditions." I think many of the criticisms come from people who want nothing to do with a Creator who can organize the stars. I for one will not throw out this evidence until much more firm evidence of their wrong comes forth.

The Stars - are they a message to us?

Psa 19:1

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

Isa 40:26 (KJV)

Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

Psa 147:4 (KJV)

He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

Isa 13:10 (KJV)

For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

Job 9:9 (KJV)

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

Job 38:31 (KJV)

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

Mazzaroth or the Zodiac, Zodiac from a primitive Hebrew root Sodi, or "the way" in sanscrit.

12 signs are the same in all ancient nations of the world; Chinese, Chaldean, Egyptian, etc. Zodiacs are in the Temples of Denderah and Esneh in Egypt. Why has Satan taken the Zodiac and corrupted it into Astrology? Was it once a sign of God's redemptive plan?

Astromomy said to be the invention of Adam, Seth and Enoch in ancient Persian and Arabian traditions.

"..that their (the mazzaroth) revelation of two coming judgments of water and fire" not be lost..." Josephus, Antiquities

Rev. 19:17-18

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
