The stars (signs to patriarchs version b)

  1. 1. The Stars: Signs to Patriarchs Part 2 © Lynn Heusinkveld July 4, 2006
  2. 2. The Way <ul><li>The Hebrew word Zodi from which Zodiac comes means the way. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>To the student of Astronomy it is the way of the sun. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Luk 21:25 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;” </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Rom 1:20 “ For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” </li></ul><ul><li>We are charged to know and understand his creation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Psa 19:1-4 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 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.” </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Psa 19:4 -5 “ In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,” </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>“ [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” </li></ul><ul><li>(This bridegroom is rejoicing in a race towards eternity.) </li></ul><ul><li>(And so should we.) </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Psa 19:6 “His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it:” </li></ul><ul><li>We are not talking about the rising and setting of the sun each day. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>We are talking about the movement of our sun through our galaxy. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The sun is about 26,000 light-years from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy , which is about 80,000 to 120,000 light-years across (and less than 7,000 light-years thick). We are located on on one of its spiral arms, out towards the edge. </li></ul><ul><li>It takes the sun (and our solar system) roughly 200-250 million years to orbit once around the Milky Way. In this orbit, we (and the rest of the Solar System) are traveling at a velocity of about 155 miles/sec (250 km/sec). </li></ul>
  12. 12.
  13. 13. <ul><li>“and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” </li></ul><ul><li>Psalm 19: 1-6 </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>Here I see a dual meaning. </li></ul>
  14. 14. The Ecliptic <ul><li>From the earth, the sun appears to make a circuit through the heavens of-360 degrees known as the ecliptic. The ecliptic is divided into 12 sections or houses. </li></ul><ul><li>(See Psalm 19: 4-5) In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Within each of the houses there are 3 major constellations or decans and within each division are major stars. </li></ul>
  16. 16. God asked Job this question: <ul><li>Job 38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>If you have a circle of 360 degrees, which sign is the first? </li></ul><ul><li>Adam Rutherford who has written a series of books on pyramidology believes that the pyramids are astronomically accurate and contain truths about the Zodiac. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>See also </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The sphinx has the head of a woman and the body of a Lion. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Perhaps the ancients have suggested we start the story with Virgo, the woman, and end with Leo, the lion. </li></ul>
  20. 22. <ul><li>Astronomers still use chart maps drawn from the ancient zodiac. </li></ul><ul><li>They know their star placements by name because they have the reference of these arbitrary drawings that someone has prepared to teach a lesson or tell a fable. </li></ul>
  21. 24. <ul><li>Psa 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by [their] names. </li></ul>
  22. 25. <ul><li>Neue the French astronomer says that the first Zodiac with which he is familiar comes from 5400 BC. </li></ul>Wilhelm Gundel, Neue astrologische Texte des Hermes   Trismegistos, München, Abhandlungen der Bayerischen Akademie der  Wissenschaften, 1936
  23. 26. <ul><li>Josephus the Jewish historian says that the Zodiac is pre flood. </li></ul>
  24. 27. <ul><li>The Persians and the Iranians say that Adam, Seth and Enoch originated the Zodiac. </li></ul>
  25. 28. <ul><li>An interesting product of the patriarch’s longevity is the overlap of their lives. </li></ul>
  26. 29. The Generations of Adam
  27. 30. Adam to Noah
  28. 31. <ul><li>Lamech and Adam were contemporaries. </li></ul><ul><li>Lamech, Noah's father, lived simultaneously with Noah for 56 years. Perhaps they knew and went over the star maps together. </li></ul>
  29. 32. Noah to Jacob
  30. 33. <ul><li>Noah survived the flood by 350 years and coexisted with Abraham for 60 years. </li></ul>
  31. 34. <ul><li>Perhaps Abraham had a grounding in the star maps even before God took him out under the stars. </li></ul>
  32. 35. <ul><li>Gen 15:5 “ And he brought him (Abraham) forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, </li></ul><ul><li>So shall thy seed be.” </li></ul>
  33. 36. <ul><li>Gen 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. </li></ul>
  34. 37. <ul><li>Gal 3:6 “ Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” </li></ul>
  35. 38. <ul><li>Abraham was saved before he was circumcised and before the law was given. </li></ul>
  36. 39. <ul><li>Gal 3:8 “ And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, [saying], In thee shall all nations be blessed.” </li></ul>
  37. 40. <ul><li>Hbr 11:1 “ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. </li></ul><ul><li>Hbr 11:2 “ For by it the elders obtained a good report.” </li></ul>
  38. 41. <ul><li>Hbr 11:13 “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them], and embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” </li></ul>
  39. 42. <ul><li>Hbr 11:6 “But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” </li></ul>
  40. 43. <ul><li>“Abraham knew the gospel and believed and thus was saved.” </li></ul>
  41. 44. <ul><li>Gal 3:16 “ Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” </li></ul>
  42. 45. <ul><li>Rom 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” </li></ul>
