  • 1. The Stars: Signs to Patriarchs Part 2 © Lynn Heusinkveld July 4, 2006
  • 2. The Way
    • The Hebrew word Zodi from which Zodiac comes means the way.
  • 3.
    • To the student of Astronomy it is the way of the sun.
  • 4.
    • Luk 21:25 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;”
  • 5.
    • 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:”
    • We are charged to know and understand his creation.
  • 6.
    • 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.”
  • 7.
    • Psa 19:4 -5 “ In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,”
  • 8.
    • “ [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.”
    • (This bridegroom is rejoicing in a race towards eternity.)
    • (And so should we.)
  • 9.
    • Psa 19:6 “His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it:”
    • We are not talking about the rising and setting of the sun each day.
  • 10.
    • We are talking about the movement of our sun through our galaxy.
  • 11.
    • 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.
    • 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).
  • 12.
  • 13.
    • “and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.”
    • Psalm 19: 1-6
    • Here I see a dual meaning.
  • 14. The Ecliptic
    • 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.
    • (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,
  • 15.
    • Within each of the houses there are 3 major constellations or decans and within each division are major stars.
  • 16. God asked Job this question:
    • Job 38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
  • 17.
    • If you have a circle of 360 degrees, which sign is the first?
    • Adam Rutherford who has written a series of books on pyramidology believes that the pyramids are astronomically accurate and contain truths about the Zodiac.
    • See also
  • 18.
    • The sphinx has the head of a woman and the body of a Lion.
  • 19.
    • Perhaps the ancients have suggested we start the story with Virgo, the woman, and end with Leo, the lion.
  • 20.  
  • 21.  
  • 22.
    • Astronomers still use chart maps drawn from the ancient zodiac.
    • 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.
  • 23.  
  • 24.
    • Psa 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by [their] names.
  • 25.
    • Neue the French astronomer says that the first Zodiac with which he is familiar comes from 5400 BC.
    Wilhelm Gundel, Neue astrologische Texte des Hermes   Trismegistos, München, Abhandlungen der Bayerischen Akademie der  Wissenschaften, 1936
  • 26.
    • Josephus the Jewish historian says that the Zodiac is pre flood.
  • 27.
    • The Persians and the Iranians say that Adam, Seth and Enoch originated the Zodiac.
  • 28.
    • An interesting product of the patriarch’s longevity is the overlap of their lives.
  • 29. The Generations of Adam
  • 30. Adam to Noah
  • 31.
    • Lamech and Adam were contemporaries.
    • Lamech, Noah's father, lived simultaneously with Noah for 56 years. Perhaps they knew and went over the star maps together.
  • 32. Noah to Jacob
  • 33.
    • Noah survived the flood by 350 years and coexisted with Abraham for 60 years.
  • 34.
    • Perhaps Abraham had a grounding in the star maps even before God took him out under the stars.
  • 35.
    • 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,
    • So shall thy seed be.”
  • 36.
    • Gen 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
  • 37.
    • 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.”
  • 38.
    • Abraham was saved before he was circumcised and before the law was given.
  • 39.
    • 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.”
  • 40.
    • Hbr 11:1 “ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
    • Hbr 11:2 “ For by it the elders obtained a good report.”
  • 41.
    • 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.”
  • 42.
    • 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.”
  • 43.
    • “Abraham knew the gospel and believed and thus was saved.”
  • 44.
    • 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.”
  • 45.
    • 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.”
