Is Following Astrology Sin? Does The Bible Condemn Horoscopes?

by Jack Wellman · Print Print · Email Email

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.


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).

Amber March 31, 2017 at 4:12 am

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.


Candice May 11, 2020 at 4:41 pm

Hey Jack I couldn’t agree with you anymore I truly truly believe everything you say and If it don’t line up with the word of God You’re in a heap of hurt. There’s a lot of false Prophets rising so I definitely agree with you what you’re saying. I pray To my heavenly father because there’s only one God.


Jack Wellman May 11, 2020 at 4:46 pm

Thank you Candice. People rely on these more when times get bad instead of turning to a good God for real help.


William Murray October 11, 2017 at 11:31 pm

I agree, with you Amber. For Christ, said: Seek you first the Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven ( The Firminments/Sky above) and all things will be added to you ( The Cosmic-Mind). Further, A Lot of the Mosiac -Law came from prior Egyptian and Babaloyian Laws– who is to say that the Mosiac-Law is Truth…moreover, it is written, THAT the Most-High-Deities are the same Today, as they where since the beginning of MORTAL-Cosmic-Consciousness-Existence ( The Thing that we call LIFE). Our Real state of being is the Cosmic-Mind ( and not the Body). THE True Trininty is as Follows: Our Cosmic-Mother (That is, Cosmic-Consciousness) ; Our Cosmic-Father ( That is, Cosmic-Breath) and The Cosmic-Child ( That is, The Cosmic-Mind–US)….YES, WE have our existence in our Cosmic-Mother and Cosmic-Father and they have their existence with US….remember, so as above, so is below– our purest Nature ( Cosmic) is of their Nature…Let Us make Mindkind (Not mankind) in our Image( What you see when close your eyes), and our Likeness ( Cosmic). For without out our Cosmic-Mother and Cosmic-Father, there is NO-THING !!! THE TRINITY AS I’VE JUST MADE KNOWN TO THE SLEEP MINDIAL-BEINGS OF THIS SPHERE, ARE THE ONLY THINGS THAT HAVE LEFT THE MORTAL BODIES UPON MORTAL-DEATH!!! FOR I’M INNOCENT OF EXPRESSING LIES– UNTIL ANY RELIGIOUS PERSON CAN PROVE, THE TRUTH OF WHAT [I] JUST EXPRESS WRONG— FOR YOU SLUMBERING COSMIC-MINDS— IN THE BOOK OF THE DOUBLE EDGE SWORD ( THAT IS, THE BIBLE)…THE CHIRST THAT YOU WORSHIP WAS IDENTIFIED BY BRIGHT,BRIGHT STAR,….CHIRST RAISED THE DEAD ( THAT’S AGAINST JEWISH LAW) , THE JEWISH PROPHETS ( FORTUNE TOLD), THE JEWISH PROPHETS ( INTERPRETED DREAMS), THE JEWISH PROPHETS ( SPOKE OF FLYING VEHICLES), THE JEWISH PROPHETS ( RAISED THE DEAD), AND CHIRST PERFORMED MAGIC ( HE MADE, THE BLIND SEE,; THE LAME WALK; THE MUTE TALK; THE DEATH HEAR)…..BUT MOST OF ALL CHIRST EXPRESSED THIS: ” YOU TOO CAN DO THE THINGS THAT I DO,AND GREATER IF YOU JUST BELIEVE “… THE ORGANIZED FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST HAVE BECOME, THE MODERN DAY OLE-TIME JEWS…AND YOU’RE CRUCIFYING CHRIST AGAIN WITH YOUR DOGMA…CHRIST IS GOING TO TELL YOU , GET AWAY FROM, FORNI KNOW YOU KNOT…


Jack Wellman October 12, 2017 at 8:46 am

Hello Mr. Murray. You wrote, “without out our Cosmic-Mother and Cosmic-Father, there is NO-THING !!!” but the truth there is no Cosmic-Mother or Cosmic-Father and what you are worshipping is nature itself (Rom 1) and this is a grievous sin. You are taking Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit and making them into your own image or a god that fits your thinking, so unless you repent from this sin and dabbling in astrology, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. I fear what you ended with will be said to you sir: ” GET AWAY FROM, FORNI KNOW YOU KNOt.”


walebash December 16, 2017 at 10:46 am

I equally share in your thoughts Mr Amber, as a matter of facts, I study Numbers or part of Numerology which also share views with Astrology. I only want to be such if it’s doesn’t have any blockage with Christianity or Islam as a religion and if it’s as the will of God to study it. But I honestly know for such that since I started my studies of Numbers, I have learn more and more by the day, and it’s makes me know who and what I am. God’s power is the greatest because, there are still some imaginable things beyond my thinking and studies for now.


Jack Wellman December 16, 2017 at 10:54 am

Hello Walebash. Please don’t do this. You have said “I honestly know” but the Bible says, “come out of her my people” and so you are choosing to study numbers and not the Word of God. The Bible is clear. You cannot rationalize it away. Please repent of this. Studying numbers does not “make me know who I am.” Here’s what the Bible says we all are (Rom 3:10-12, 23) Study that and not numbers and repent of this (Rev 21:8).


Tyler June 11, 2019 at 11:09 pm

It’s funny that you mentioned that you were a Sagittarius because when most people mention their zodiac sign, they are referring to their sun sign, which is their EGO. Anyway, Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, which is in charge of religious and spiritual teachings and beliefs. In other words, just because you converted doesn’t mean that astrology isn’t working in your life. Also, your (Jupiter ruled) Sagittarius ego will, most likely, try to argue with me about this because, frankly, it’s your God given nature. I hope I have enlightened you, my brother.


Jack Wellman June 12, 2019 at 8:34 am

Friend…please distance yourself from these pagan or satanic things. God is not pleased. The Bible condemns those who practice such things. You are not enlighted by God’s Spirit. Please repent of this pagan practice.


Faith October 5, 2020 at 2:41 pm

I was too obsessed with this zodiac things and I can’t get over it now. I get too obsessed with new things and my curiosity to know the future led me to believe horoscopes. I also had a dream of becoming an astronomer. But now that I understand it is a sin I decided to stop reading horoscopes and watching videos. I am trying so hard but it’s very tempting. Please pray for me to get over it .


Jack Wellman October 5, 2020 at 3:02 pm

Praying for you over this Faith. I am glad you commented and asked for prayers. This shows you know it’s wrong and are trying to overcome this.


Brittany July 6, 2017 at 9:29 am

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.


Jack Wellman July 6, 2017 at 10:39 am

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.


Sikhonzile December 2, 2017 at 3:38 am

Thank you pastor

I think I was also like Brittany, I also saw that people with the same stars had the same characteristics and only use the information to try and deal with them…and it was easier but your response has shown me what I have not been seeing all along that my heart is wicked in trying to rationalize this sin…I am yet deceived by my heart again as people with the same star signs share the same characteristics


Jack Wellman December 2, 2017 at 2:38 pm

Hello my friend. Thank you for the encouragement.


Don June 27, 2020 at 3:32 am

Thank you for your straightforward insight so far. I ask this curiously and humbly; The Bible says “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” in 2 Timothy 3:16. However, the Bible has changed in format over generations. And, in-fact, when I was a practicing Catholic, their Bible was different than my current one – with apocryphal books. This leads me to believe there is knowledge available that hasn’t been made canonical yet could still be, or could have been at one time, “all scripture.” This may not directly endorse astrology, but it does peak my curiosity of knowledge not yet endorsed by religion or churches. Are we to just discount these other dead sea scrolls? Please share your thoughts on this.


Jack Wellman June 27, 2020 at 9:42 am

Hello Don. God is sovereign over all things and He would not let His inspired Word be corrupted by other books that are extra-biblical or not inspired by God, so we have the correct translations today and the whole counsel of God. God would not leave part of His inspired Word hidden or not able to find us. The main things (John 3:16) are the plain things…and the things that are sufficient to save us.


Francis July 9, 2017 at 6:44 am

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.


Frances July 31, 2017 at 1:00 pm

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


Jack Wellman July 31, 2017 at 1:36 pm

Amen Frances. Spot on. Well said.


sophiejo August 5, 2017 at 4:26 pm

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.


Jack Wellman August 5, 2017 at 4:45 pm

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.

Marcy August 16, 2017 at 4:25 am

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.


Jack Wellman August 16, 2017 at 9:47 am

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!


Jack Wellman August 16, 2017 at 5:38 pm

Thanks friend. Great points. My apologies for misunderstanding.


Marcy September 6, 2017 at 10:42 pm

“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.


Marcy September 7, 2017 at 9:38 pm

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)

“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…


Jack Wellman September 8, 2017 at 9:03 am

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!


Marcy September 8, 2017 at 4:16 pm

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?
Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons
or lead out the Bear with its cubs?
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…


Peter October 27, 2017 at 7:36 am

We are called to be children of God and joint heirs with christ with power to do all things. Don’t let things happen to you. Choose yo be believersanf stop thinking about things happening to you. Chart yourcourse. Speak into things and make them serve you. The sun will not strike you by day nor the moon bynight. Forget horpscope


Jack Wellman October 27, 2017 at 9:28 am

Hello Peter. Thank you sir for your comment but we cannot speak things into existence to serve us. God speaks things into existence. We have our course charted already by God. I agree…no horoscope.


Anthony October 30, 2017 at 9:54 am

I’m so confused. The book of Revelation is full of insights into the “future”. So are we saying that ALL forshadowing of the future is evil or are we picking and choosing what benefits our beliefs. I feel that God created everything… and we can learn from all of what he has provided for us. We can learn from good as well as learn from bad. We can learn from the pull of the moon to learn about tides. But we can not learn that the stars that GOD created has an effect on us personally? I love God and Jesus with all my heart. I believe that i am saved and will go to Heaven. I do look into my astrological sign and see a huge similarities to my very own personality. Using the tools that God has provided is not bad. I give no strength to evil or satan because i pray to God that i dont. And i trust in him to guide me. My astrological sign is very close to my personality. I know that many astrological signs are subject to changes due to environment and structure of mentality. I believe fear is what drives churches to success. There arent any people who i feel can honestly say.. “You want a relationship with God? Go home and pray and meditate on his love and compassion. Be one with God through prayer and self understanding.” Many Christians believe that brow beating someone into the church will bring them closer to God. For me… as a kid i shut down and wept with confusion. I asked God to help me understand. I know that Jesus is the true King because of the most simple concept that he has instilled and insisted we teach to the nations… LOVE. We get so wrapped up and fixated on bits and pieces that we start to condemn the ones that God tells us we should embrace with open arms. My father would beat and humiliate me, and do heinous things. But he stood before people and made a presentation of himself as a great and trusting person as he would read his bible and go to church. You see, he was smart. He was intelligent and he knew how to manipulate us. He used fear to cower behind. He invoked fear in me so that i never told anyone what he did. He made me feel worthless. He broke me. And i BELIEVED HIM! I BELIEVED HE WAS RIGHT BECAUSE HE WAS A MAN OF GOD! There is so much deception. Pastors who go home and beat their wives and kids. Wives who cheat on their husbands or neglect their kids. There is no LOVE. How can we stand and point and make people feel less… when we ourselves are humans trying to make sense of everything. So, we cling to certain scriptures and force it onto others by way of intimidation and essentially blackmailing and confusing people into believing that GOD is a heinous father that beats his children into submission. God Is Love! God is Pure Kindness. Jesus Came to Fulfill our hearts not to condemn us to hell. All he wants is for us to love him and love eachother. The rest will take time and a lot of consideration. The bible is written by man. The bible has been translated by man. The bible is abused by man. The few scriptures that Jesus truly spoke were about love. And being humble. We flock to hear what one pastor says about the bible, and what he says is true.. but people are dying halfway around the world without hearing a single word from the bible. Geuss they all go to hell. Lets talk about the burning bush. When Moses asks who the burning bush was… GOD PROCLAIMS “I AM THAT I AM” meaning even God was telling him to not focus on a name, but to know that he existed and he was bestowing commandments that will bring more opportunity of LOVE. We are so wrong nowadays. Because we are so emphasised on getting people to feel worthless for sinning. Jesus understands that humanity is full of sin. But he came to bring back the JOY and LAUGHTER. Christianity shouldn’t be focused on how sinful we are… thats so depressing. Christianity should embrace and push us to accept love. To be kind to eachother. To help raise cities from poverty and when the broken people ask why we proudfully proclaim it is the love that our creator has wished for us to spread. As far as astrology… the three wise men followed the STAR to visit our holy king. Maybe stars are angels singing to us to give is good energy so we can feel more involved with one another. And with that, I say, Thank you God for the sun, moon and stars. Thank you for all of existence. Thank you for your hard work that is severely underappreciated. You are the beginning and end. The highest on high. King of all Kings. By the way i do believe my dad will go to heaven. I believe that he will have consequences. I want my dad in heaven. I believe hell is for the people who do not accept God’s LOVE. People who deny his existance. That is the only sin to keep you out of heaven.


Pamela Rose Williams October 30, 2017 at 2:48 pm

Hello Anthony, Thank you for your comment. It seems that perhaps you are confusing astrology and astronomy. Here are some definitions:

Astrology – the study that assumes and attempts to interpret the influence of the heavenly bodies on human affairs.

  • As my brother Pastor Jack mentioned in this article, Horoscopes and Astrology are condemned by God (Read Deuteronomy 18:10-24; Isaiah 47:13 and Micah 5:12 to begin with). As Christians, we should have no part of this.
  • Astronomy – the science that deals with the material universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere.

  • God created the universe (that is the earth, the heavens and their hosts, stars & moons). This study is encouraged by Bible passages like: Genesis 2:1; Job 9:7-9; Isaiah 40:26; Nehemiah 9:6; Psalms 19:1-6; Hebrews 1:10 and so many many more.

    You mention many other things that are not supported by the Bible and I pray that you take some time to spend in God’s Word so that you understand that as Christ-followers we should not follow the practices of the world.

    I have always believed all you said but after reading again today about how the three wise men were led by the star to Jesus, it had me wondering.
    I really wish there is a way my doubt could be cleared.

    Please, I seek not to lead anyone astray. I am just seeking clarification.


    Jack Wellman January 7, 2018 at 8:23 am

    The three wise men followed a star but reading Matthew 2:1-12 and it says “His star” meaning the Messiah’s star. If you have doubt, stay far away from anything to do with astrology or horoscopes. The three wise men were not reading their horoscopes and then thinking they must go to Jerusalem. Horoscopes are sinful. Stay clear my friend.


    Rose March 31, 2018 at 4:35 am

    I was dabbling in these things because I feel God has given me gifts except I was using them for selfish reasons and not to bring people to him I believe god has given me the gift of discernment. And after having many close encounters of of the devil the deceiver of light works I see truth in this but I believe God can talk to us through his creations. The three wise Kong’s followed the star to where Jesus was born I believe people have been miss guided instead of using these things to become closer to him they use these things to be like him we can’t be like like him we have to have faith. But that doesn’t mean God doesn’t give us gifts Joseph could interpret dreams Moses parted the sea why because of God I believe as long as your a believer in God don’t ever get wrapped up in crystals and moon magic like you said tarot cards I did I’ve seen and felt the truth I can feel the good and bad I don’t know how to explain it but I know God wants me to wake more people up to this realization because they are attracting bad and only feels right because that’s what the devil wants you to believe until it’s hard not to believe experiencing these things has brought me closer to God I doubted him so much and that’s when I turned to all of that I cried and cried once I realize how wrong and confused I was once I realized how lost I was and how little I understood I like work I wish there were more articles like this we’re people could see more often


    Marty May 14, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    I don’t know what to do, I believe in Zodiacs and how people are spiritually affected by when they are born because my Zodiac matches almost perfectly with my personality and it also matches up or is close with most of my friends, but I also believe in the Lord and God. I have recently been looking for a middle point, a place to believe in both, and I think I am on to something.


    Jack Wellman May 15, 2018 at 8:28 am

    Hello Marty. So you believe in Zodiacs so much you’re willing to disobey God. I am concerned my friend. Matt 6:33 shows you Who and what we must seek first, but you are serving two masters, and that cannot be done. Decide today whom you will serve. Zodiacs are sinful yet you are justifying them as being okay because the “match up.” Please repent of this my friend.


    Collin F August 11, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Jack, you have been deceived. Astrology is older than the bible.

    People do your own research. Dont be sheep.


    Jack Wellman August 11, 2018 at 6:18 pm

    Friend, please repent of this stuff. The word “astrololgy” means “study of the stars” and any one that tries to live by or practice or adhere to astrology is playing into Satan’s hands. Please repent of this Collin. You are lost. Please read your Bible. You don’t need research…you need to read the Bible!


    Maricelia September 18, 2018 at 7:43 pm

    How do the Magi of the Bethlehem nativity scene fit into this conversation?


    Jack Wellman September 18, 2018 at 8:28 pm

    I believe it was because someone mentioned that following horoscopes is okay since the Magi used the stars to chart Jesus’ location, but that is a stretch. The point of all of this is we should not read or depend on horoscopes for our future. It is in God’s sovereign hands.


    Jonathan February 19, 2019 at 6:25 am

    Thankyou so much so pastor Jack more for this beautiful insight,because l had a friend is an astrologer she help mi did a free reading and the other one l even tray to order another astrological reading again but when l come across these page my eyes open God bless more.


    Jack Wellman February 19, 2019 at 12:30 pm

    I am so thankful that this helps some sir. I appreciate your encouragement Jonathan. May God ricly bless you for being a “Barnabas” (Son of Encouragement).


    Joseph Cohen February 26, 2019 at 5:07 pm

    I consulted a psychic and he told me things that have been accurate so far, but I’m wondering, am I sinning against God? Because I’m a Roman Catholic and I have love and faith in Jesus, but the psychic thing has made me think more? I’ve also read some verses in the Bible, some support astrology and others don’t. I’m really confused, am I sinning against God?


    Jack Wellman February 26, 2019 at 5:40 pm

    Hello Joseph. There are no Bible verses that support astrology. Please tell me which ones you think are. God says this practice is an abomination to Him, so why not take the clear command to avoid such thing seriously rather than listen to a human (or satanic) psychic who has no godly wisdom. Yes, this is sin. Ask your priest.


    Sandra Penasales February 28, 2019 at 12:55 pm

    Praise the Lord Sandra. I am so joyful that this has helped…but all glory to Him (Psalm 115:1).


    Natalie March 12, 2019 at 9:59 am

    I am a Christian, but never in my life have I thought that astrology goes against God’s word. My mom sometimes reads astrology and so do my friends. This has sparked my interest into studying it. Astrology is in a lot of my art projects and I’ve seen many similarities and coincidences in real life. There are many songs and works of art made by Christian artists with astrology symbols. I am so disappointed to now learn that God is not ok with it.


    Jack Wellman March 12, 2019 at 10:57 am

    so you base your obedience to God’s Word of whether other peopole do it, it’s okay and not use the Word of God as your standard. Which Christian artists use astrology symbles, and if so, why does this make you think astrology is okay. You are justitifying your sins before God by excusing your behavior because others are doing it. This is so wrong Natalie. Please repent of this sin.

    Hello Pastor, I just wanted to ask what we should do if we are born with these gifts which allows us to read palms, have psychic visions etc. Are we also considered abominations?


    Jack Wellman April 15, 2019 at 9:56 am

    These are surely not gifts from God but things of the Devil, so we must distance ourselves from this as those who practice such things will not be in the kingdom. I would say repent of this, distance yourself and turn to Christ. Ask your pastor and I’d believe he’d say the very same thing. This is an abomination to God. Thank you for your question.

    Praise the Lord my friend. I am so overjoyed at reading your word of repentance. I pray for you and ask God to richly bless you for your obdience.

    I stumbled on numerology and astrology and it looks thrilling and interesting. Since I have found out that God is not pleased with us looking for our future through them. I henceforth desist from trying to find out a future through them. So help me God.


    Jack Wellman August 5, 2019 at 12:02 pm

    Wow. So wonderful. I am praying for you and thankful to God that you have left this satanic influnce. Praise the Lord!


    Luka August 22, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    Im christian(easter orthodox) im 14 im learning astrology but…i dont belive in that we can predict future with it i only studie zodiac characterizm. Didnt god created the stars.


    Jack Wellman August 22, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Yes, Luka, God created the stars, but the Evil One created astrology, or trying to read one’s future. Although some firmly believe that the success of their day, the good fortune of their decisions and even their lives depend on advice they get from the signs of the zodiac, this is not what God says. God nowhere in the Bible tells us to build our lives around moon phases and the signs of the zodiac as astrologers teach. God even said that He will burn up unrepentant astrologers (Isaiah 47:13-14).

    Jeremiah 10:2-3 tells us very clearly: “Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain …” (King James Version).

    Astrology, moreover, is a form of idolatry because it puts man’s devices before God’s ways. Astrologers teach people to try to obtain success by means of astrology. But God expressly forbids this worship of the constellations and the host of heaven (2 Kings 23:5).

    Just before the nation of Israel entered the Promised Land, God, through Moses, reminded the people about the importance of obeying the laws that He had given them.

    Notice the word of caution recorded in Deuteronomy 4:19: “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the Lord your God has given to all the people under the whole heaven as a heritage.”

    The sun, moon and stars were not to be served in any way. The signs of the zodiac are not something to put stock in or to believe as determiners of our daily lives or destinies.

    You must enjoy the Zodiac, but it is not of God, and if you enjoy it more than pleasing God, it’s clear that you value it more than obedience to God. Since you are just now learning astrology, I would stop now too, for there is no good thing that comes from astrology. Read more on this:

    It was numbers that lead me to knowing that God existed. Why would Satan lead me to God? I kept on seeing 21 every single day. I noticed a pattern and immediately recognized that only intuition can explain, not science. Then and there, on the same day, I seeked God. It’s been 6 months since I felt His relevation, repented and took Christ into my life. I do realize what you’re talking about, but would you care to explain if NUMBERS really is pagan?


    Jack Wellman September 19, 2019 at 12:45 pm

    I am so happy to hear you put your trust in Christ. Numbers are no match for the Word of God and the Spirit of God as they birth the children of God. God does not need help from numbers or astrology to have someone find God. It was acutally God Who sought you (Eph 1) as no man seeks after God (Rom 3:11). SO astrology is pagan or satanic, and so God saved you, not by numbers, but by His Spirit. I hope this helps, but even so, I am so happy to know that you’ve put your trust in Christ. Praise the Lord for your salvation. All glory to Him and Hm alone (Psalm 115:1), and not numbers or astrology.


    Nia November 23, 2019 at 7:20 am

    So much deception. What an eye opener based on the comments alone.

    I was searching for a biblical perspective on astrology, constellations, horoscopes…that explained the satanic warfare and abomination behind it.

    This is a great article for those seeking truth. It’s also encouraging that the Pastor is relentless speaking truth in love and godly wisdom.


    Jack Wellman November 23, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    THank you for the encouragement Nia.

    I know this is off topic but I am very confused about this
    It’s about the LGBTQ community is it a sin
    I’m a Christain I don’t know if I should support them or not tho I am Straight but please talk on this
    I am so confused
    Thank you


    Jack Wellman October 24, 2020 at 10:09 am

    We can pray for those who are leading lives of sexual immorality. Pray for them and witness to them, but the Bible says those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God, so we cannot support what God condemns in His Word.


    Anonymous November 15, 2020 at 1:53 am

    Hello, I’m am a Christian but started looking at astrology, I looked in it and after looking at your article I wanted to thank you. The younger generation is deceived so much, God bless.

    What if you use these tools for character analysis instead of divination or communicating with the dead? Maybe astrology and cards and numbers could be okay if you were not to place your whole life into them and forsake or look away from GOD? I think that is the real issue is WORSHIP. This life is all a game between the 2 superpowers Satan the ruler of this earth now & God the creator of this earth and all of reality. They have placed a bridge of crossovers that each of has has a choice but if we die in the process of not choice we automatically go to the evil Satan side and burn with damnation for eternity.


    Jack Wellman December 2, 2020 at 6:58 pm

    Hello T. Patton Jr. Satan is no superpower. There is but one Superpower and that is God. Satan was defeated at Calvary and now the one thing remaining is for the King of kings to return and rule this earth from the New Jerusalem. Astrology and cards and numbers are not okay in any way at all. We do not go to Satan after death but to judgment (Heb 9:27). Satah has his own fate and it’s separate from us (Rev 20). No one who trusts in Him will ever be lost (John 6:37-39, 10:27-29; Rom 8; Eph 1..etc.). These “tools” are satanistic. we have all the guide we need in His Word, the Bible, to give us daily direction in which to live, i.e. John 13:34-35. You won’t find those results in any astrology, cards, or numbers!


    Thia J December 20, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    I do not follow nor practice looking to the stars or astrology. I rely on prayer and the Word for my life. Traditionally in my family we rebuke astrology. I didn’t know I was a Virgo until I was 39. But when I read the bible, the Jews regularly looked to the stars for times and seasons. Even the wise men that came from the EAST. They know of Jesus’ arrival and general location because they were following the stars. There was also a prophecy of the star and the birth of Jesus that gave them a clue. Are we being too strict and ignoring that stars and their positioning do have some place in the bible or our lives. I am just asking because sometime we as Christians can be so strict to the point we make up rules that are not exactly biblical. Now when I read Deuteronomy, God is very specific on what not to do. So were the wise men breaking this rule or in the guidelines of what God wants. Jews do observe the stars in some manner.


    Jack Wellman December 20, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    Our one and only guide in this life is the Bible and the Holy Spirit. Adding any human element to our lives takes us away from Scripture and the Spirit’s work. It is clear that this is sin to follow, read or practice. Wise men didn’t follow astrology as we know it today any more than they used tarot cards. You cannot justify your use of astrology to help you in life because God forbids it in His Word, the Bible. That should be good enough for us. Do you really want to go by what the Jews did and the magi did? No, let the Word of God be our guiding light. I am glad you do not follow these practices.


    Thia J December 20, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    Yes. I agree. They did not look to the starts in the practice that is going on in 2020. That is true. But are we throwing out the baby with the bath water. Tarot cards, reading palms, sooth saying is of the devil. I completely agree. But i believe even reading the stars like the Wise men did to find Jesus is rebuked in the church too. That’s all i am saying. But i digress. Jesus will straighten it all out when he come.


    Jack Wellman December 20, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    Amen my friend. Well put.


    Geneva Lewis December 28, 2020 at 3:23 pm

    I have enjoyed reading all the comments on this subject matter. I totally agree with Pastor Jack well man. If the Bible says don’t doi then don’t do it and when it says do it then obey it because everything else is what opens up the hedges for satan to slip in. Just trust God and obey his commands.


    John March 2, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    So ive been trying to study this and do deep research on this topic because the current bible is translated wrong i even found that the bible is not even hebrew its caninite the original translation speaks of more that 1 God refrenses the planets and the stars and throughout the bible it goes through eras of the 12 zodiac signs and the original txt jesus dosent exist yet talks about the sun not his Son but the actual Sun go back and do the homework Gods Kingdom is the 12 signs of the Zodiac the fact that there are stories that are very similar to those stories from the bible should make you question the origin of the Bible remember The Romans gave you the religions of the world its a rabit hole you need to go down to in order to seek the truth but i you need to go and find the original bible and translate it correctly


    Jack Wellman March 2, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    The Bible is totally trustworthy if you care to research this sir, but Christianity did not come from the Romans but the Son of God Who came to die for those who would trust in Him (Mark 10:45), but you have your choice to reject this if you wish, but I pray the Spirit of God would move you to read the Bible for the very first time and discover that it is God speaking to us.


    Jayce April 7, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    Would be very grateful if you could elaborate further about the translation accuracy of the Bible. Perhaps any reading materials that could tell us more about how the Bible was exactly translated and how accurate. Thank you & Godbless.


    Jack Wellman April 7, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    Hello Jayce. Here is an excellent resource on how the Bible’s translated with great accuracy.


    Sarah March 9, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    I know a friend who went to a “palm reader?” I think that was what she was called. Anyways, this person used angel cards rather than tarot cards. The reader explained she did believe in God and only worked through him. Never met this person, and never asked any questions regarding the past of this friend. Was able to tell her things about how may children she had, other things that had happened in the past…
    Is going to see this type of reader also a sin?


    Jack Wellman March 10, 2021 at 9:08 am

    Only God can foretell the future and He forbids us to try to do so, so I would not go back again, ever as this is not pleasing to God. All we need is in the Word of God. Anything more is a work of man. Please call your pastor and tell him and see what he says.


    Joe Chavez March 21, 2021 at 11:14 am

    BLESSINGS to you Jack, you have a special gift to pursue this lenghty dialog, phew.
    I have a family member struggling and I recently learned they see astrology as their spirituality. First thing I see when I turn inward to my counselor is “I am a Jealous God”. And, “you are married to Christ”, why would I jump in bed with another (for guidance). Praise the Lord, we are not abandoned or without a Father that Loves us. He loves us as much as he loves Jesus.
    He cares for our every breath, heart beat, hair on our head and wants us to prosper spirit, soul and body. And does not need astrology to convey this, nor would he trust his precious childrens lives to any “thing” or being not following him to guide us. He moved into our hearts, or core being at the new birth. THE CREATOR HIMSELF, woa, is living in me. Why would I turn to creation (and those in spiritual bondage) to deal with others for guidance when the one who wrote the manual for life is personaly teaching me, duh.


    Jack Wellman March 21, 2021 at 1:53 pm

    Absolutely spot on Mr. Chavez. Thank you sir. Very wise words.


    Egunjobi daniel May 13, 2021 at 6:54 am

    I was reading the zodiac signs and it matched my qualities but i decided to search if what i did was wrong then i realise it is was against God’s will all i ask is forgiveness from God


    Of10Spheres September 5, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    The bible is entirely astrological, and not “literal” but “literary”. Mans interpretations are as high as their vibration allows.


    Jack Wellman September 6, 2021 at 10:29 am

    Hello friend. If you think the Bible is entirely astrological, then you must not have the Holy Spirit for He defines and shows the things of God (Rom 8), otherwise, you cannot know the things of God or the Bible, so I pray you repent of following astrology (which God forbids in His Word) and humble yourself before the mighty God, otherwise, here is your sure and certain future (Dan 12:2-3; Rev 20:12-15).
