THE MAZZAROTH: THE GOSPEL WITNESS OF THE STARS

"For since the Creation of the World, GOD's invisible qualities, His Eternal Power & Divine Nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20 The constellations in the Heavenlies proclaim the ageless testimony of God's redeeming plan for fallen Mankind. It was fashioned before the foundations of the world began. It can only be configured from Earth's reference point of view. It begins with Virgo & ends with Leo -declared & displayed for all the Principalities, Power, humanity & satan to witness. It was the knowledge taught & handed down from Adam that became skewed with the Fall of Mankind due to sin. Thus all cultures since then have had a folklore of a Christ figure -Redeemer crucified on a cross, killed & resurrected like Krishna of the Hindus. When the Spanish Conquistadors came to Mexico, the symbol for Quetzalcoatl the `Feathered Serpent' was a cross on which he was crucified. When Christian missionaries encountered the Dogon Peoples in Africa, they also had a cosmological story of `a Son' dying on a Cross. Each emerging culture/civilizations ascribed the Zodiac deferent names & symbols to the constellations, to a degree; yet the meaning has stayed exactly the same. It is not Astrology that satan has corrupted to be but Biblical Astronomy ­the study of this `silent witness' as the Apostle Paul admonishes us to consider. When the Ethiopian Eunuch was reading about the `Suffering Servant' of GOD in Isaiah & who it was referring to, the Apostle Phillip identified & explained that this Redeemer is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the MESSIAH & no other before or after to come. -Act 8:26 The antithesis of this witness storyline is that of satan's ultimate destiny of judgment & doom. -John 12:31 The primary source is taken from the study by E. W. Bullinger's The Witness of the Stars, 1893. FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. NO PREDICTIONS ARE MADE. 11 The Mazzaroth in the Hebrew Bible, comes from the Babylonian word Manzaztu for `station & position' from Job 38:31-32, with a very similar word also occurring in 2 Kings 23:3-5 as Constellations. It refers to the Zodiac, pattern of stars on the Ecliptic. We have been in the Age of Pisces (Church Age) & about to enter the Age of Aquarius, the 1000 Year Millennial reign of Christ on Earth. Each of the 12 Signs have 3 subsigns that complete the Story. Our Sun takes 1 year to traverse the Ecliptic, & with it the Gospel Witness of Christ's redeeming work is retold to every generation. The Ecliptic has 4 cardinal celestial points that correlate to our Earthly 4 directional points of our compass. They are marked off by the (Lion, Ox, Man, Eagle). These cardinal points & symbols are seen & are ascribed to the Gospel themes of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John. These attributes of Jesus Christ ­The Servant, The Man, The King, God glorify GOD's throne -in Heaven & what was in the copies on Earth & what will be coming in the future.

SUN

THE ECLIPTIC: is an imaginary line that shows the path the Sun apparently "travels" against the fixed stars ­

Zodiac (celestial sphere) as the Earth revolves around the Sun during a given year. It takes 1 year to traverse the ecliptic. The Sun stays in 1 `House" or sign of the Zodiac for about ~2000 years; it would take roughly 27,000 years to complete the grand sweep.

PAST

TABERNACLE IN THE WILDERNESS (MOSES) Exodus 25:9

A facsimile of GOD's Throne (a perfect Cube) was given to the Nation of Israel where GOD could interact with Mankind to a certain degree due to the Fall. GOD had the 12 Tribes of Israel configured by a `sign' / standard as they encamped around the `Throne.' The 4 main quadrants that made up were the -Lion, Man, Bull, Eagle. The encampment configuration based on population of each Tribe made a `cross' formation. The subsequent Solomon & Zerubbabel's Temples were fashioned to the same exact blueprint given by GOD.

PRESENT

TABERNACLE IN HEAVEN (THRONE OF GOD) Eze 1:26 & Rev 4:7 -Conceptual

We have few glimpses into how God's Throne is like. God's Throne always faces East located on the `Sides of the North' in the `Mountain of the Congregation.' It is different from His Merkavah Throne, or mobile Chariot from Ezekiel with wheels suspended on the Seraphim's. GOD's throne is surrounded by the 4 Cherubim `Living Creatures' -Eagle, Ox, Man , Lion. The 24 Seated Elders represent the Redeemed -seated in Heavenly Place in Christ Jesus. -Eph 2:6 Jesus Christ is the only One that holds the office of Prophet, Priest & King.

FUTURE

TABERNACLE ON NEW EARTH (NEW JERUSALEM) Rev 21:1

There will be a New Heaven & Earth. GOD's literal THRONE will descend w /its 12 layers of Foundation Stones. It will be cubed shaped as was all prior copies. Earth will have no seas; a River will flow out of the Throne & no need for a Sun.
