Here are some quotes I found while conducting a search on your subject at google.com. I must say, I've learned quite a bit because you asked this
I hope you find these quotes as enlightening as I did. I hope you're not too disappointed with the absence of aliens or flying saucers - but there's
nothing quite as fascinating as stories about supernatural entities, absolute good, absolute evil, doing battle with one objective in
mind...controlling the universes...
Stars are generally synonymous with angels.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And
his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth... REV 12:3-4
... the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him. REV 12:9
Notice when you juxtapose the verses how the stars in 12:4 and the angels in 12:9 resemble one another?
This is perhaps better explained by Christ when he appears to St. John the Divine during the vision:
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven
churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. REV 1:20
Starsgazers used astrology (still are) to predict the future.
Again, Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Mo'-loch, and the star of your god Rem'-phan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry
you away beyond Babylon. ACTS 7:43
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. REV 9:1
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars
sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? JOB 38:4-7
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lu'-ci-fer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou
hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the
congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. ISA. 14:12-14
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. LUKE 10:18
Take care, and God Watch Over You
