For a very good explanation of all the problems with part 1 of Zeitgeist:
There is a use for the constellations called the mazzaroth in the bible. I have given two links already if you are really interested in what it does
say. A short part is:
God did not leave the truth up to man and certainly not limited to a book. Now, I am not dissing the Bible at all, in fact it it supremely excellent
in sharing truth and what is to come. What I mean, is should the bible disappear from earth, the message of God’s plan is literally written in the
Stars where no spirit from the ether no spirit of man can manipulate the message. It’s fixed in the heavens,
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.
Psa 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
We see that there is something marvelous about the stars of the heavens and a message set forth. Do you know what they say? Are you afraid of
looking into what they may say? Has the enemy of your soul so perverted your mind that you cannot even look to see what could God have possibly
written in the heavens? God literally named the stars of the heavens and the order,
Psa 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
Isa 40:25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by
names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
The stars of the heavens are a magnificent road map. Do not let any man fool you into believing they speak of some procession of ages going from
Taurus to Pisces for the time of Christ and now 2000 years later to go into the age of Aquarius. These astrotheologians spin a good yarn, but walk
with me for a little while in this place and examine the truth of fact verses what seems to me to be clever twisting of history and knowledge. I
happen to believe astrotheology is the soon to be new world order religion. I am not even saying they are doing it on purpose as they may actually
believe what they say. I demand solid proof regarding teachings from antiquity. There should be some data to back up what one teaches. If someone
wants to simply say some stuff, say, it came to me in a dream and I believe it well, I might not believe it, but it’s their right to have their
opinion. However; don’t take a dream or some obscure uneducated person in the 1800′s who never studied history, has no expertise in ancient
languages or linguistics and then attempt to teach that information to millions that Christianity or Judaism are myths and religions set up on false
pretenses. I will show quite clearly that is not the truth.
Now, I also want to present you with the truth from the beginning about the zodiac. Does the bible even talk about it? Yes, actually it does,
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?
Let’s take this verse by verse:
In verse 31 we see two constellations named. There is historical evidence that the stars were named and fixed for the most part. There have been a
few changes by the influence of the Romans and others, but the shapes are fairly well set back to ancient times. In verse 32, we have a very
interesting word, “Mazzaroth” which is,
Apparently from H5144 in the sense of distinction; some noted constellation (only in the plural), perhaps collectively the zodiac: – Mazzoroth.
Apparently from H5140 in the sense of raining; a constellation, that is, Zodiacal sign (perhaps as affecting the weather): – planet. Compare
It is widely held that Mazzaroth refers to the zodiac. There is more to this study of the stars, and in Genesis we read,
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, and for
seasons, and for days, and years:
Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Gen 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the e
