Is Following Astrology Sin? Does The Bible Condemn Horoscopes?

What does the Bible say about a Christian following astrology? Are horoscopes allowed for the believer? How does God feel about anyone following astrology or horoscopes?

Astrology's roots are tied to the calendar and seasons and have almost always been culturally and politically acceptable.

Astrology’s roots are tied to the calendar and seasons and have almost always been culturally and politically acceptable.

Ancient Astrological Practices

Following astrology is not new. This practice has been around for thousands of years. It has been dated from the 3rd millennium BC and its origins are most certainly not from God…at least the big “G” God. Its roots are tied to the calendar and seasons and have almost always been culturally and politically acceptable. In the 20th century, the practice and use of astrology has exploded and sadly, even among professing Christians. At the roots of astrology is a deep human desire to know the future and to explain the meaning and purpose of human life. Even the ancient Babylonians practiced astrology as far back as 1800 BC. The Babylonians used astrology as part of a divination or predicting of the future. It was believed that the gods presented themselves by their constellations and planets. Astrology has been practiced by almost every culture known to mankind and still is to this very day. It has been practice by politicians, actors, bankers, and cuts across almost every segment of society. There is even an American Association of Astrology as well as countless other groups and clubs dedicated to divining the future.

Horoscopes Origins

Billions of people worldwide check their horoscopes each and every day, and yes, even followers of Christ. Before I was saved I did too. I was born under the sign of Sagittarius and I used to look at what the daily horoscopes said that was predicted for me every day. For me they became known as the “horror-scopes” because I almost always dreaded reading what I believed to be my future. I could not have been more wrong. The problem with horoscopes is that they are all so general that they could apply to almost anyone born at any time of the year but I still believed that there was some relevance to them. Even today I hear people ask what sign they are with the intent of finding out what type of person they are or if a couple are compatible or not. Horoscopes are believed to have originated with the ancient Greeks. The word horoscope literally means “watcher of the hour.” The ancient Greeks believed that the sun, moon, and stars dramatically impacted their lives. And people today still believe that. The different signs are thought to be indicators of what a person is like. The problem with this is that it turns into a kind of fatalism.

Does God Condemn Horoscopes and Astrology

What does God say about horoscopes, astrology, predicting the future or trying to communicate with the dead? Plenty, but I have pared down to just using a few Scriptures to see how God feels about such satanic practices.

Deuteronomy 18:10-14 “There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this.”

How clear is that!? God has not allowed us to do this. It is an abomination to God. That is, He detests it.

Isaiah 47:13 “You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you.”

This verse deals specifically with trying to divine the future by using the stars, the moon, or the heavens (constellations).

Micah 5:12 “And I will cut off sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more tellers of fortunes.”

Here God condemns fortune tellers. These include those who read palms, tea leaves, use tarot cards or any other device or practice that tries to predict a person’s future or fortunes.

Conclusion

God condemns the use of astrology and horoscopes for many reasons. For one thing, God alone knows the future. We have no business trying to divine what God has not clearly revealed in His Word. Deuteronomy 29:29 says “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” What has God revealed to us? He has revealed His will to us in the Word of God the Bible. We have no business in trying to divine or predict the unknown future. That is God‘s prerogative, not ours. Even if we tried, we’d likely be wrong anyway but the main reason is that it is an abomination to God. When we try to predict or know the future, we are impinging on God’s sovereignty and we are showing a lack of trust in Him.

Christians are treading on dangerous ground if they are reading and following horoscopes or astrology. Sadly I know of several professing Christians who do this. How seriously does God take it when we use anything or anyone that tries to communicate with the dead, predict the future, or seek counsel from anyone else but God? Here is a direct warning, not from me, but from the Word of God. First Chronicles 10:13-14 says that “Saul died for his breach of faith. He broke faith with the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the Lord. Therefore the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse.” Take the Word of God with trembling and fear. God will not compromise with sin and the divination of the future by use of astrology or horoscopes makes Him righteously angry. Don’t go there. Not even for curiosity, “for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord” (Deuteronomy 18:12) for “the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this” (Deuteronomy 18:14).

Hi, I started to study Astrology at the age of 14 when I was robbed of self – out of touch with self through abuse all my life.
I just did not know myself. I began to study my very own chart to see with my eyes what in the world is going on. (But i want to say to most of you here that the news paper or magazine horoscopes will hardly ever be accurate because the writer is writing without knowing who you are in terms of your chart- birth time) I did not study it to try and find predictions as any real Astrologer will honestly tell you that Astrology does NOT predict – it is only a forecast like a weather forecast. The weather man says ” tomorrow the storm will cease and become milder ” We do not know how much milder it will be, but we know the storm will be over.
And finally i have to say too, not anyone can understand or be an Astrologer. It takes a certain sort to know what it really is. Is is only a science. NOT God speaking nor to be replaced for God/Christ. There should be no such thing as Horoscopes in the magazines. It is a shame that it has been used and presented in such a way. Astrology takes years of study to only see the most simplest reason as to how it works… It is a correlation. You have to really know what i mean by correlation.
To understand the secret on correlation between earth and planetary motion it takes a certain insight. yes, of course Planets will not save you – Only Christ.
Venus is NOT Love and Mars is NOT a white shining armor riding on a white horse. The planets have NO correlation with Heaven – Only earth. To everything there is a Season and a Time to every Purpose under Heaven.
Astrology is tapping into that Time. A place not anyone can do or understand. So no matter if you are a Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, ect ect it does not matter as the SUN was only transiting that constellation, but here we are only speaking of the sun transit and not the transits of all the other planets. Astrologers need to look up this in order to accurately observe your chart. As far as those Psychic people combining Astrology with Tarot cards – that is a disgrace. I do not recommend anyone believe the Tarot or the horoscopes in the News Paper.

Hello Amber. The Bible says “Come out of her my people” meaning come out of the things of the world and astrology is not from God so guess where it comes from if not from God? If you are trying to justify the use of astrology, you are disobeying God’s Word which tells us that people that do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God, so it is your choice but the Bible tells us to have nothing to do with it. We cannot rationalize using astrology so to use it in your life is doing just what God forbids.

Hi pastor
I have been very interested in astrology since I was a teenager. I’m trying to understand why it’s such a sin. I am a follower of Christ. I love him, I pray and I fast and can’t imagine my life without him but I also find an interest in astrology. I’m not interested in finding out the future and I don’t agree with fortune tellers or tarot card readers. I just find certain patterns with certain signs and by understand the characteristics of each sign it just helps me to understand and deal with ppl better. Why is that such a sin. I don’t seek palm readers or numbers so I know how my future will be; I trust in God completely and didn’t God make the stars? So there most definitely has to be some truth to people being born during a certain time of year and their characteristics being a product of it. In my heart I don’t feel like reading up on characteristics of certain signs are bad. I feel like it’s great knowledge to have.

Hello Brittany. Why can’t you see this is sin as God says these things are an abomination to Him. Eve found interest in the forbidden fruit and that did not turn out well, so don’t base your decision on “I think” or “I believe” but on what God says. You say “I don’t feel” far too often so rather ask, “What does God’s Word say?” Which has authority in your life? God’s Word or “what I feel like is….” The human heart is wicked and deceives us (Jer 17:9) so don’t trust your heart or feelings; trust God’s Word and obey or you are rationalizing this sin and God is not pleased.

Thank you for such a wonderful article as this and the beautiful discuss that followed…!
This issue now treated lightly as a fun and populist thing is a ticking time-bomb and many Christians are yet to come to terms with it.
Horoscope, astrology and its likes are as letting in a snake into a garden; Poisonous and dangerous to our souls and our relationship in trusting in God. What many of us do not realize is that these are part of Satan’s subtle ruse to get us to offend God and hurt our souls. It sure looks fun and interesting and sometimes our human heart out of curiosity sometimes tends us to it.
We need to listen to God’s word “turn away from sin” and by it… “completely”; he means.
For if Adam & Eve knew that by a simple bite they turned their descendants to condemnation wouldn’t they rethink.
“Just a simple look up”,“it doesn’t hurt”; we say, we want to know our year of marriage, which sign would be best as marriage partners, if we’re expecting a child, if we would get a raise at our work place?, if things would get better..? or the simpler ones of knowing our partners traits, seeing if what sort of temperament we have etc. These are simple natural human curiosities but if we turn to horoscope, Astrology, zodiac or its like for answers and not to God, then we are sinning, hurting God and our souls.
Do not set your eyes on anything base (Ps 101:3).
The Lord God frowns at it (Astrology, Horoscope, Zodiacs, Divination, Fortune Telling etc.). Do not give the Devil any opportunity to subtly enter your heart, then your soul, then your circumstance and life.
Harken to the words and instructions of the Father and you will be saved abundantly. God bless his words in our hearts Amen.

I came here because I am struggling to let go of 10+ years of emotional conditioning from studying astrology and fortune telling through tarot. The practices seem interesting and applicable at first. However, it is most definitely not the way. Predicting or trying to “forecast” your life only stirs up more worry, an egotistical sense of “knowing” and the dependency to be in control of your destiny, when in fact if you just live and do right, God will provide to you what you PERSONALLY need.

Yes, we do have freewill. That power allows us to decide whether we want to serve God as beings gifted with the experience of learning from this world what is right and wrong, and to decide what is beautiful and spiritually freeing in the eyes of God, or self-controlling and evil. Alternatively, we can decide to do whatever WE feel is right. Our feelings are responses, not predictions. If we were in a position to respond correctly to our feelings, we would all have perfect lives by now, right?

I have VERY recently repented and have been praying daily for a clear mind and heart so that I may entrust my troubles and worries to be cared for by my Father, knowing that he will teach me what is right for me. While I am awaiting HIS responses I have never felt more freed from sadness or the fear of just living out my day to day experiences, especially with having to associate with people and their “personality types”. This new feeling is invaluable.

Trying to decipher the “what ifs” by use of astrology and fortune telling, tarot, etc is a waste of your experiences, a hindrance of your emotional well being and also (as I’ve experienced) an invitation to invite other forces in to your life that feed off the power God has given you. Do not let that happen to you. Take a look at the world around you… No one knows astrology to be evidently true or omnipotent, no matter the outcomes of the prediction. Why dabble in the unknown? People who have never studied it have either the same or different experiences. Why then should the dependency for what our creator forbids matter?

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life” Matthew 6:25-34

It seems to me that it is horribly unwise to dismiss astrology as a body of knowledge worth esteeming. To dismiss it is to deny obvious truths such as the moon’s effect on tides and the position of the Sun in the seasons.

It is also essential to note that the Old Testament injunctions are not against the science of astrology but against the consulting of astrologers and other fortune tellers. (THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT DISTINCTION.)

It makes sense that God forbids the consulting of astrologers/fortunate tellers, necromancers, etc., for doing that is to trust those people, and that is a misplaced trust, for we do not know whether they are good or bad beings. (Dabbling in the occult is dangerous not only for our spiritual but even physical well being.) We should place that sort of trust only God, and in our own efforts to understand our world.

Seeking to understand the principles of astrology in order to gain a better understanding of our relationship to our surroundings is certainly not forbidden by God: God does not forbid the effort to gain knowledge, be it mathematics, biology, chemistry, psychology, astronomy … or astrology.

There is no point in denying that astrology is a science, for it is an ancient knowledge that was known even to the Incas, and is demonstrably relevant in our present-day lives. Everybody who has made an earnest study of astrology will confirm the latter.

Hello and thank you for your comment. God tells us, “Come out of her my people” and that includes trying to use astrology to predict the day or the future or make plans. Astrology is defined in the encyclopedias and dictionaries as this: “Astrology is the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial objects as a means for divining information about human affairs and terrestrial events and in its broadest sense, is the search for meaning in the sky.” To me, that is sin. Meaning comes from life. Studying the stars and their interplanetary movements is one thing, but to practice or participate in astrology is what the Bible says is an abomination to God. Doesn’t that bother you that you seem to be justifying it as “a science” and yes, it is ancient, but so was the forbidden food from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Look where that got us. No, not “everybody who has made an earnest study of astrology will confirm the latter.” I and 7 others on this site have made an “earnest” study, including its origins, and we want no part of it. Please do the same.

Is it Possible that the Lord created tools and things of a Divine nature that satan grabbed onto and twisted into a deceptive practice to mislead humans? Did he not do that with humans themselves? (Just wondering)

Astrology, like Mosaic Law, shows us that we need a savior! It seems to illustrate things that are happening to people living in the fallen world system, like a classroom for the collective that are still asleep/unconscious.

Some are predicting a “heavy end to the year.” Maybe this happens because those people subject to it are walking around in a fallen world and this is how the “fallen lights” keep them corralled or tested? “Problems with the currency system,” abuses of power, revolutions…how can the world have a “heavy ending” to the year and the start of the new one (2018) if it only affects no people? The same thing was predicted when the banks almost collapsed, the mortgage industry did, and many people WERE affected…what is that?

So, do we live under the “tyranny of the stars” or do we go Higher?

We’ll soon see, right? Accordingly, as a pastor, this should have zero effect on you, correct, based on your counsel? Also, it shouldn’t affect anyone else, if I’m understanding this correctly?

How are you protecting them all from the December/January events predicted? If they don’t occcur and it’s a breeze, we’ll all know the stars are bs to show anything but shimmery colors. If they do occur, how do we explain it? Did we fail to pray for them properly?

When the moon is full, even the police report markedly increased weirdness.

Those predictions about the year’s end cannot be right and not right. They are predicting something serious and not limited to any small portion of the population – so this should be a litmus test to show us what the planets do, can do, have the ability to do…either way, we’ll know something from the result, right?

I mean, it is or it isn’t…we live here. We’ll see it or we won’t.

Hello Marcy. I am not protecting anyone from all the “December/January events predicted” so if you are trusting in these predictions and not in God, then you are seriously mislead my friend. God calls this practice an abomination, and you cannot justify it by stating “moon facts” or such. The planets cannot do anything that God does not tell them, besides, they are not affecting anything…God is over all and sovereign over all. The litmus test is whether we will come out of this world…or try to justify these pagan practices as right?

Marcy August 16, 2017 at 5:34 pm

Thank you for responding. I am absolutely NOT trusting these “predictions,” only pointing out what is being reported as “coming” by those whose assumptions have proven correct in the past, coincidence or whatever – I don’t know why the outcomes matched the predictions in the past. (We DO know there ARE fruits of the Spirit, so SOMEONE HAS TO BE able to Prophecy, right, though not about rocks, but what is to come)

You said yourself that “the planets cannot do anything that God didn’t tell them to do,” right. So you admit that God Does have His hand on the movement of these bodies, and the Bible says there are powerful angels set in governing effect over these planets. Humans are definitely here to be “sorted” by God; that is scriptural all the day long. These governing bodies (fallen angels?) are not in the Divine Kingdom any longer; that is why we are NOT to take their counsel.

I know God calls the practice an abomination; I am simply reporting what the news events have stated is coming. Either it WILL or it WON’T have the effects they are expecting – period. We don’t live in a universe of disconnected parts; God is everywhere, and His Will in/over things. That Will, for us, is for us to live our lives led by the Holy Spirit and not by rocks steering the fallen world, perhaps trying to awaken them that they need a savior. (There is some order & laws there, or they’d fall out of the sky). If the rocks follow suit, what does that mean?

I am not justifying anything in the above; I am simply stating the facts reported in the news by others. This IS an opportunity to scientifically observe whether the statements become fact or not. That’s all. NEVER saying we should follow the rocks; at best, they show the pitfalls humanity easily falls into and should know better by now.

I am not seriously mislead, actually; the Holy Spirit is heavily present within me, breathing thru my own nostrils. I am simply questioning how humanity gets into a prideful position about taking hard, judgmental stances on things when the Lord makes a call on something to work thru ANYTHING He has created. For instance, a gay couple adopted a child. Who wins or loses there? Hint: the child is safe and honored and loved, regardless. When the Lord says things are an abomination, we are not to “encourage” such things; but we are also NOT set here to condemn others based on it, and the Lord has the Sovereign Right to use ANYTHING He created for His use at any time, should He choose to. That is all I am saying; that and that humans get up on a stance-horse of rigidity and can’t see the forest thru the trees of what the Lord is oftentimes trying to do to bless someone because they are blinded by the red tape. That is what the New Testament freed us from; rigidity and judgmentalism. We MUST be able to step back in humility and let the Lord decide who HE is going to enforese HIS OWN ruling of abomination upon in the end result and must stay OUT of limiting HOW and Where and thru Whom He can work. I have heard of female pastors who go into strip clubs and pray for girls “wearing only shoes.” Now, to me, that would be an abomination! But, if the Lord is looking to save souls, He is going to have to send disciples into ALL the symbolic Egypts that exist here to pull them out of the fray. Can you step back objectively, that is what I am asking, and see into His Word here? Who are we to tell Him where He can and cannot be, do, use to save? The same electricity that kills someone on death row lights your home. We must be VERY careful about judgments here; they can get us into hot water with the Lord. He isn’t saving people thru astrology or horoscopes – that is ridiculous; He CAN choose to lead people and turn them FROM that stuff to the better Way He offers and has provided. That would be Evangelistic Astrology and there is no such thing! But, Hey, it IS an Egypt, and therefore it is fair game for leading the captives OUT.

I speak from experience, having led people to powerfully standing in Holy Spirit-led lives OUT OF looking to any pagan practices; sometimes, to free His people, we have to “meet them at their level and lead them out.” This is NOT my word there; it is His. If you cannot see that then you are choking off His Kingdom Work for Pharisaical rules and rigidities.

Jesus commanded us to Love One Another. If we cannot meet them where they are and illuminate the Higher Path, HOW can we serve God when they can relate from where they’ve been? We MUSTN’T follow pagan practices into the abyss, but in order to do what Jesus did when He snatched back souls from the devil’s grip, we must do battle for them where they are stuck.

If astrology does anything, it shows that people need a savior, the Higher Path, the better way. Like using alcohol to point out WHY you shouldn’t overindulge. Reporting on news stories about upcoming events they are listing does NOT make me a heretic; people are trying to find their way OUT of that abyss, can you see that? These things themselves point out WHY they are hopelessly inept at truly elevating anyone. They are their own cure – pointless circles.

God is not merely over all & sovereign over all; WE have been given free will in the earth and His presence. We don’t have No Task here. Our choices steer this boat, because they are how we use our Divine gifts of free will and our bodies/minds as Divine instruments – or, in many cases, NOT use them that way.

Otherwise, why would we be told to “Choose ye this day whom you will serve.” If He’s doing it all, it doesn’t matter what we choose.

I am confused when you say God governs what the planets do, but say we can’t re-report when someone says “A lesson is coming.” (though I agree we never should, but if it proves out – and the Bible DOES prove itself). How can these things seem to foretell these large shifts if God is NOT in charge of them somehow?

No pagan practice is right; pagan practices leave God out and are NEVER the way out. The aim of the chart/astrology should be to Get Off the Chart Forever. This can happen only thru the Lord, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit within. It can help to know where personal potholes are, so you can shore up your defenses against the demonic; however, if you are Holy Spirit-led, you are led in the right anyway. Many are not so much so, but they can be enlightened and shown – thru astrology – and quickly, WHY it is a hopeless path for them and that the Divine is the only Way.

You didn’t answer my original question: If God created something for His use that has been perverted and twisted by satan to mislead humanity, is it possible that it was His tool and that it got corrupted by the devil? Wouldn’t be the first time!

We are called to live in the world in the flesh, with a Soul (that MUST BE PURIFIED And REDEEMED; That is what the astrology chart shows, the soul’s traps, stuckness, need to be freed), but from the world of Him and the Holy Spirit. We never justify pagan practices as the way; they can never be that, as they are based on a corrupt, soulish-powered system; they are the way to never go and they keep you bound to the world system, but you CAN illuminate the path to the fallen where they are, that is all I am saying – that we do not egoically step on the Lord’s toes of His Will to save someone or lead them or limit how the Lord can Work when He gives the order to guide & assist. (Is this what astrology does? Nope, not largely, though some come at it Scripturally, they are extremely few. Horoscopes are pure fabrication and mislead far too many; they should never be looked at. As an evangelism tool, ANYTHING should be up for His use for recruits to the Kingdom. I would not think it biblical to go “fishing for converts” in a strip club, but if we limit where the Lord can fish, we are leaving a lot on the table for satan to feast on, and that is NOT the Way for us.

I am saying, the news has said they are expecting some major shifts int he world system. Now, we KNOW there are shifts, because the battles play out here, too. Do we limit how and where we can hear the Lord’s voice and Heed His call to serve and save? If you are Awake, He is communicating with us CONSTANTLY, and in countless things we are unaware of oftentimes. Have you ever noticed this, and then thought, “I could have missed noticing that Glory,” and then wondered how many times you actually do/did?

Nobody should be encouraged to pagan practices for guidance or redemption; they will never find it there. They may have prayer answered by encountering someone who is willing to reach out to them where they are instead of sitting in judgment of their activities (seeking the Truth, answers, though mislead) as an abomination. You DO know, especially with social media now, the staggering degree of assaults the average person is under from the deceiver every day, right?

The true litmus test, then, is that we use any stuck places where the fallen have become lodged in crevices of deception to shine the Light and show them WHY they need to stand up and step out. Often, this is FAR more valuable than saying, “You gotta ____!” Showing them WHY they gotta leaves a lasting impression and an indelible onus to Keep Going and persevere, despite the tactics of the fallen world and the enemy to deceive.

Consider this, if the rocks DO turn out to be “accurate” in this prediction and people suffer under the Egyptian lessons, would that NOT be the perfect time to say, “Hey, see how following these rocks and worldly ways is gonna mess your life up? You might want to consider this True Path.” Just saying.

God Bless!

“My people perish from a lack of knowledge.”

The Lord says the stars are for signs and wonders, NOT WORSHIP or ADVICE. This is proven with Scripture, I can quote aplenty.

Technically, the prophesied “heavy end to the year” is already fulfilled, with the Hurricanes Harvey and the now incoming Irma, whose winds of 185 mph have doubled the breaking of the record for sustained winds for 36 hours straight at that speed. The weatherman called it “unheard of.” While Harvey was occurring over Labor Day, the NorthWest was getting blasted with 110 degree temperatures… wandering, stiff-necked through the desert, refusing to obey and repent…”lovers of themselves, each taking his own way, being his own god…”

Interestingly, the prediction they made was that there would be financial impacts and the world would be affected. The damage from the Hurricanes is in the billions of dollars, and America and the world have been affected, because these kinds of catastrophic events Affect Us All. Since it happened over Labor Day, we might heed the “signs” and ask ourselves, “How, for and against whom have we been laboring? Have our intentions been pure, or have we labored to cause harm or keep others down?” The hurricanes have affected homes, so we might ask if it is a sign of “What has been hidden in the home of our hearts? Have we lifted others up, or sought their diminishment, as lovers of ourselves instead?”

The prediction/prophecy was, “What is hidden in your secret heart will bear its fruit now, revealing the truths therein.”

If God wants to open hard hearts, He Will Find A Way…and you may not like it, if you are resisting.

So far, the prophecy is already fulfilled: Heavy end to year.

Fear God. Repent. Make Right. Walk Right.

Never underestimate His Power or His Might.

Do I believe the Lord couldn’t control those hurricanes? No. I don’t believe that.

Additionally, how many of the words we use are tainted with idolatry? Sound silly?

Hurricanes are named for the Mayan god “Huracan.”
“Our English word “hurricane” comes from the Taino (the indigenous people of the Caribbean and Florida) word “huricán”, who was the Carib Indian god of evil.”

2 Timothy 3:2 – People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

The Lord said “Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1Peter 1:16) but today there are increasingly “them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

People engaging in these activities compromise Areas.

“Have no other gods before Me,” saith the Lord. Jesus fulfilled the Law; this still applies.

There is Nothing to Stay His Hand…and that is something to keep soberly in mind.

I am including here the original article I mentioned that I had read; I did not write this article below, but have included the “representations” of the ‘signs’ in parenthese for further reflection, post facto. No need to prognosticate; let things roll out and then review. The facts will either prove or disprove the statements. However, as you can see from hurricanes Harvey, and now Irma, and who knows about Jose’s impact, all while we are fast-approaching the anniversary of the other Big Lesson (Sept. 11th), the hurricane isn’t standing around checking people’s spiritual affiliations. This is how I was trying to point out that when we Ignore the Signs, and refuse to Learn the Lessons, taking the Higher Road and Path, All are affected to some degree by the Lessons that the Lord will not hesitate to roll out Upon people if He seeks Advancement of His Will and His Ways and the people are resisting, being their own gods, hard-hearted, unyielding, selfish…all of these things are just Forcing His Hand.

He will NOT be denied, think about it, so one way or another, He Will have His Way…be it the Easy Way or the Hard Way, is up to us, each and all. We would never have likely made ANY progress as a species without the Lord have driven us to it over the course of long history, and these are His “powers that be,” ensuring His Will for us to rise is followed through upon, even if He has to resort to Corrective Measures now and then…though that is our fault, for those resisting Making Right, Getting Right, Walking Right. HE set those planets and stars on their schedules and courses; He alone governs their bodies and effects…for signs, so we can’t say, “Hey, you didn’t even give us a heads up!”

If we all collectively stepped up to be a better people, all the way around – because that IS the Lesson here and the Demand – there is No Way we couldn’t have better results, micro- and macrocosmically.

“Mysteriously” (?), like the historic Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, the ‘signs’ were ALSO IN THE SKY as with H. Harvey, pointing to the “groaning and travailing of the people as serfs under the greed/drive for worldly progress,” and the Lesson then as now is for there to be Equality, Empowerment, Lifting Each Other Up, and a Fertile World for All to be their Unique Selves and Share their Unique Gifts. He’s not asking anymore; it’s Do It or Face the Consequences. Those are the ‘signs.’ Comparing the signs to the scientific facts proves the accuracy. You can do this yourself with the article below and the fact that the hurricanes are indeed going to leave a “heavy end to the year,” and that is just So Far.

Ignoring the Lessons, tragedy forces His Hand, and people are forced to “lift others up” now because of the tragedy. Can you see how, one way or another, He Will have His Way, regardless.

I always encourage people to take the smarter road, and maybe someday they will understand Why and listen…hopefully before they have to learn too many more Lessons the Hard Way!

So, here is the article below. You can look back in time and judge for yourself, but the prophecies herein have already been fulfilled with Harvey and Irma on the warpath. BTW, what the article predicts planet-wise hasn’t even begun yet, but the Vice Chair of the Fed is stepping down Just as the planets begin their shifts…you may see too many ‘signs’ to count it all coincidence. Events are already fulfilling the predictions.

Don’t be like Jim Carry in ‘Bruce Almighty’ following the big truck full of signs and railing at God to “Just give me a sign.” Heed the signs, callings…take the Higher Path, before some calamity forces you there. One way or another, it will affect us all, as I said originally.

Shouldn’t ALL play the game smarter (more honorably, as better people all around) by now? None will escape Him.

Originally, we were all formed from One Heart, One Love. Against that, all that we do, are and bring, will be weighed.

Signs & Wonders: 2 victories (heavy-hand hurricanes)
People: -2 victories (not heeding warnings & Lessons)

ARTICLE:
“A Heavy Ending
We end the year on a heavy note, entering a new three-year period, in which themes of the previous few years—purification, transmutation, and releasing old habits—begin to play out on a much bigger scale of social change. Jupiter is moving into intense Scorpio (integrity/rebirth or tests/temptations), Saturn (lessons or discipline) into dutiful Capricorn (the world), and Uranus (change or innovation) into slow and earthy Taurus (money & security). This will be the start of a markedly challenging period, when we will orient toward duty and obligation, as we attempt to build a new society from the ground up. Persistence and somberness rule, and there could be an air of gravity and even financial upset that takes over at the end of 2017, before our major shift in 2020, which ushers in the new paradigm.”

In the Hope that this will wake some UP…what comes next CAN be up to you, IF you step UP…It is time for each to be who they came to earth to be…in the Highest form of that…for all…

God Bless…

Hello Marcy. These “signs” in the heavens are have nothing to do with astrology or horoscopes. We must not put any stock in these as the source is Satan himself. This person who wrote this is deceived and is looking to the stars for what happens in the future and humans have no business doing that, so please think again about this as all those who practices such things, the Bible says, will not inherit the kingdom. Put your trust in God and rest in Him and don’t look to any stars or signs…look to Christ alone!

I do rely upon Christ/Holy Spirit/the Lord Almighty (not just Christ alone, because He is one part of the Holy Trinity), but if a meteor is incoming and about to hit your house, I’m going to report to you that “sign” in the sky. If God confirms this sign, I’d encourage you to get out of the way.

We cannot foist back onto the Lord what is our responsibility, such as heeding His leading, nor His signs. The Bible clearly states that the stars are “for signs and wonders.” So, what does that mean then? A literal Stop or Yield sign hanging in the firmament: “Be a better person! Make Right! Get Right! Walk Right!”

We DO have a function here; we have free will…to get with the Lord’s Program and Rise to the challenge/task/demand of Betterment as a race, or to ignore it and learn things the hard way, because we are resisting the impress upon us.

Again, I am in no way “Trusting the stars,” nor looking to them for Advice, nor worshipping them in any way. You yourself said that they do nothing He doesn’t will them to do. I am simply reporting the facts. In the Bible, there is prophecy, and we CORRELATE that/those prophecies TO facts. I am doing the same thing here, reporting, and that is all. As I said, you can look back and know if the “signs” of the celestial bodies were from satan (deceiving, misleading) or a part of a Higher Purpose (to advance humans to a nobler course). Satan is succeeding by keeping people hard of heart and stiff of neck; THAT is where the battle must be fought and won.

Horoscopes are bs; guesswork and nothing more. The stars were created by Him, and He can use Anything for His Purposes. Satan doesn’t keep the stars in their order, for godly qualities are not within him (and we can see from the Divine order in our Universe; that order is another Blatant proof of the Lord).

If I gave you a prophecy from the Holy Spirit and told you 5 things were going to happen and when, and they DID, would that make the “signs” from the devil? No. Can the Lord USE something He created FOR HIS USE? WHOM does He have to ask to do so?

I have no concern over what the author of the article is looking at the sky for, nor why. Maybe they will put on purple tights and dance to a hurdy-gurdy. Don’t care. Just reporting what the “signs” in the sky are reported to indicate, and that the prophecies have already been fulfilled: a heavy end to the year. Period.

Satan does not control the stars. He has PERVERTED their function – like he does with EVERYTHING else – and warped it to his use to mislead. That perversion is NOT at the level of the stars, but in humans. Satan has no power to affect the orbit of Jupiter, for example. He has NO governance over the celestial bodies, he can make humans Believe he does, but he DOES NOT.

Whether that author will inherit the kingdom or not is not my concern, I am simply pointing out that, per the report, the prediction has already fulfilled itself…and nothing more.

I am simply saying that the Lord IS attempting to call humanity out to reach for a higher and better path amongst itself and with its fellows. We don’t bow to signs and ignore their Source. That is Idolatry. We rely on Source. We don’t worship an orange; we worship the Author of oranges.

So, where are these “signs” the Lord speaks of? He is trying to communicate with us Constantly? The Lord is clear. The bodies are under HIS RULERSHIP, HIS FOR SIGNS, Not satan’s for signs. Hence, we don’t WORSHIP them.

Job 38:31 – 31
“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades?
Can you loosen Orion’s belt?
32
Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons
or lead out the Bear with its cubs?
33
Do you know the laws of the heavens?
Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?

We don’t have No Say. We don’t have No Purpose. We don’t have No Point to what we do; what we CHOOSE MATTERS, in the small and large scale. THAT is the point I am trying to make, but people want a free pass from heeding the signs…and so learning the hard way becomes the only path.

All I can do is TELL you the meteor is heading for your house; I can’t make you get out of the way.

Free will. How we use it…and who we become with it…matters.

Below is the FACTUAL SCRIPTURE of His meanings:

(I NEVER, EVER said to Worship the stars, nor ask them for advice. If a supercell gives “signs” of a storm, ignoring the sky and wearing a bathing suit won’t protect you from the tornado.)

Notice that the following refers to IDOL WORSHIP/LOVE OF IDOLS:

Deuteronomy 4:19 – “And beware not to lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and be drawn away and WORSHIP THEM AND SERVE them, those which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven.

Deuteronomy 17:3 – and has gone and SERVED OTHER GODS and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the heavenly host, which I have not commanded.

Jeremiah 8:2 “They will spread them out to the sun, the moon and to all the host of heaven, which they have LOVED and which they have SERVED, and which they have gone after and which they have sought, and which they have WORSHIPPED.”

“because of all the houses on whose rooftops they burned sacrifices to all the heavenly host and poured out drink offerings to OTHER GODS.”

Isaiah 47:13 “Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.” (Horoscopes)

1 Samuel 15 – 23 Rebelling against God or disobeying him because you are proud is just as bad as WORSHIPPING idols or ASKING THEM for advice.

****The stars have NO POWER to SAVE YOU and they NEVER WILL, but if one is heading for your house, I’d recommend heeding the SIGN. The task is always for us to ASK THE LORD, to go Higher with everything we are and do. “Is there something You are communicating regarding Your Will, Lord? What is my part?”

I have forewarned of a Reckoning on those practicing evils for a few years now, and nobody wants to face that. That is the Word from the Holy Spirit. So, it looks like the Lord is setting some of His celestial players into position to cause just that to happen.

For what it’s worth, I hope you’re right, because if the hurricanes are just the “tip of the iceberg” for an unrepentant people’s, I have no interest in the rest of that menu! (If you are walking with the Lord each day, you should be on course anyway!)

God Bless…
