Mazzaroth - The Gospel in the stars

Mazzaroth Study and Resources

Genesis 1:14
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven 
to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.

Psalm 19:1-3
"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." 

Note:  Mazzaroth (constellation) or Biblical astronomy studies the creation that God made and set in order. It is not astrology which the bible admonishes us not to follow.

Job 38:32 
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? 
or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

mazzaroth: perhaps a constellation - Hebrew: מַזָּרָה
Phonetic Spelling: (maz-zaw-raw')

And the LORD took him [Abraham] outside and said,
“Now look to the heavens and count the stars, if you are able.”
Then He declared, “So shall your offspring be.”

Genesis 15:5

Psalm 147:4
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

kokab: a star / Hebrew: כּוֹכָב
Phonetic Spelling: (ko-kawb')

shamayim: heaven, sky / Hebrew: שָׁמַיִם
Phonetic Spelling: (shaw-mah'-yim)

Daniel 1 - King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon ordered young men of Judah’s royal family and other noble families, to be brought from the land of Israel to Babylon as captives.
Daniel served in the King’s royal service, through God’s wisdom he was given an esteemed role in the Babylonian government. Daniel was placed in charge of all the wise men of Babylon. (Daniel 2:48-49)
Wise men at Christ’s birth were guided by the knowledge from the celestial sign posts.
Throughout history the sky has been used for navigation, agriculture, and marking time.
Satan has deceived modern society and Christians to only see it as horoscopes/astrology (which God is against) and has blurred the view with light pollution.

Verse 12

* The word equally applies to the fore-paw of an animal, as does the "arm" in verse 20.

Josephus informs us that the twelve tribes of Israel bore the twelve signs on their banners; and the Chaldee paraphrase, of a still earlier date, asserting the same, adds that the figure of a man was borne on the standard of Reuben, a bull on that of Ephraim, a lion on that of Judah, an eagle on that of Dan. The Targums also attribute to Dan a crowned serpent, or basilisk.
Libra was not borne on any of the standards, Simeon and Levi being included together under Pisces, and the place of Libra and of Levi in the encampment of Israel being that occupied by the Tabernacle.
Part of these prophetic annunciations are as yet unfulfilled, some relating to the final triumph of the "King Messiah," and some to the eventual position of the tribes in the restoration of Israel to their own land. The prediction early accomplished, that the sovereignty should be vested in the tribe of Judah, was the authentication, the seal of the remaining prophecies. As surely as David the son of Jesse, of the tribe of Judah, reigned on Mount Zion, so surely unto that Shilo, that Prince of Peace, who is the root and offspring of David, will be the gathering of the nations.

שום דברים  The four "Royal Stars" with their modern and ancient Persian names were:
Aldebaran (Tascheter) - vernal equinox (Watcher of the East)
Regulus (Venant) - summer solstice (Watcher of the South)
Antares (Satevis) - autumnal equinox (Watcher of the West)
Fomalhaut (Haftorang/Hastorang) - winter solstice (Watcher of the North)

What's in the Sky

Venus was referred to as the Bright Morning Star by the ancients, a title used of the Lord Jesus in Revelation 22, in close proximity to the reference to him as “Alpha and Omega.”

The Author and Finisher - Alpha and Omega - Rev. 22, Hebrews 10:16 -
The Lord has brought us on a special learning journey, that goes far beyond astronomical events or factual information. He has directed our gaze to look upwards, so that we will reflect and consider downwards - toward His Word, toward our heart, and toward His love. The more we understand the depth of His love for us, the more that we will see the finish - when He finishes what He started in love.

For Signs and For Seasons

Such are the contents of this wondrous book that is written in the heavens. Thus has God been speaking and emphasizing and developing His first great prophetic promise of Genesis 3:15.

Though for more than 2,500 years His people had not this Revelation written in a book as we now have it in the Bible, they were not left in ignorance and darkness as to God's purposes and counsels; nor were they without hope as to ultimate deliverance from all evil and from the Evil One.

Adam, who first heard that wondrous promise, repeated it, and gave it to his posterity as a most precious heritage— ground of all their faith, the substance of all their hope, the object of all their desire. Seth and Enoch took it up. Enoch, we know, prophesied of the Lord's coming, saying, "Behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment upon all" (Jude 14). How could these "holy prophets, since the world began," have recorded their prophecies better, or more effectually, or more truthfully and powerfully, than in these star-pictures and their interpretation? This becomes a certainty when we remember the words of the Holy Spirit by Zacharias (Luke 1:67-70):

"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
For He hath visited and redeemed His people,
And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us
In the house of His servant David;
As He spake by the mouth of HIS HOLY PROPHETS

The same truth is revealed through Peter, in Acts 3:20, 21: "He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you; whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all HIS HOLY PROPHETS SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN."

These words have new meaning for us, if we see the things which were spoken "since the world began," thus written in the heavens, which utter speech (i.e. prophecy), and show forth this knowledge day after day and night after night, the heritage of all the earth, and their words reaching unto the ends of the world.

This Revelation, coinciding as it does in all its facts and truths with that afterwards recorded "in the Volume of the Book," must have had the same Divine origin, must have been made known by the inspiration of the same Holy Spirit.

We now proceed to compare the two, and we shall see how they agree at every point, proving that the source and origin of this Divine Revelation is one and the same.

God wants us to consider His redemptive work and has covered the earth with a Firmament, a heaven directly above the earth that was designed from the very beginning to bear silent witnesses to His gracious plans, His power and His glory.

Did you know that the Hebrew language was actually three languages in one? From the very beginning, the Ancient Hebrew language has had a conventional understanding, but also a pictographic and numeric value. Each Hebrew letter represents a different ideogram, and thus words are anchored in their ancient roots.
