Mazzaroth

The clear implication of the passage below is that God’s edicts regarding earth are inscribed in what we moderns call “outer space”.

Job 38:31  Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
Job 38:32  Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
Job 38:33  Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

In this part of the book of Job, God is heard speaking to Job, putting him in his place. The first two verses ask whether Job can manage the powers in the constellations. In that context, verse 33 is referring to the heavenly bodies in space as “heaven”. More than that, verse 33 indicates that the powers in space have dominion in the earth.

I don’t know how literally to take this description of the transmission of heavenly powers to the earth, but at the very least the passage is saying that the ordinances of heaven are symbolized by the things presented to our view in the sky above us.

In that light, it seems entirely legitimate to me to say that Revelation 12:1-6, the birth of the manchild, may have been heralded to us by a planetary alignment in the fall of 2011.

Gen 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 …

Psa 19:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psa 19:2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

The unifiedserenity website offers a good explanation of this along with a list of the 12 constellations of the zodiac with their biblical meanings and other good resources. It also offers a refutation of a false teaching known as astrotheology.
