    THE BIBLE AND ASTROLOGY

    I have excerpted some scriptures that show that astrology is well-recognized and acknowledged in the Bible. The purpose for doing this research is to show that belief in astrology is compatible with and related to belief in traditional Christian teachings. I encourage you to look up these passages and read the Bible stories in their full context...

    In this stunning passage, the Gospel of Saint Luke refers directly to the astrological powers of the Heavenly bodies:

    Luke 21:25 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.

    The Gospel According to St. Matthew tells the story of the three Wise Men, known as the Magi. Many theological experts have declared these Magi to be astrologers, to whom the star in the east was of major cosmic significance. The magnificent star Matthew describes that guided the Magi to the Christ was the conjunction between the planets Jupiter and Saturn on the meridian over Bethlehem in the year 7 B.C. (thus "The Star of Bethlehem")...

    The Magi, according to other historical writings, were unsurpassed in their wisdom and knowledge of things luminous. It was, in fact, one of the Persian Magi who predicted the birth of Christ. "The Star of Bethlehem," of course, foretold the birth of Christ. Here are some passages directly from the Bible:


    Matthew 2:2 – Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

    Matthew 2:7 – Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.

    Matthew 2:9 – When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

    Matthew 2:10 – When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

    These poetic passages celebrate the heavenly components of astrology:

    1 Corinthians 15:41 – There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

    Psalms 8:3 – When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained.

    Psalms 89:37 – It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven.

    Psalms 147:4 – He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.

    Comets, shooting stars, and meteors have long been associated with widespread disasters. Global adverse effects may be triggered by these phenomenae. These dramatic passages demonstrate the Bible's recognition of these facts:

    Revelation 8:10 – And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters.

    Revelation 9:1 – And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

    Mark 13:25 – And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

    Joseph has an astrological dream:

    Genesis 37:9 – And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

    This passage is clear by itself:

    Isaiah 47:13 – Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

    This passage is also straightforward as to its meaning:

    Jeremiah 31:35 – Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name.

    Daniel competes with astrologers and others to interpret the dreams of King Nebuchadnezzar:

    Daniel 2:10 – The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, 'There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.'

    Daniel 1:20 – And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.

    Daniel 2:2 – Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.

    Daniel 2:27 – Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, 'The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king.'

    Daniel 4:7 – Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof.

    Daniel 5:7 – The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.

    Daniel 5:11 – There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers.

    Daniel 5:15 – And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof, but they could not give the interpretation of the thing.

    Here is another Biblical passage that verifies the cosmic science of astrology:

    “The Heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the Earth, and their words to the end of the world.”

    (Psalms 19:1-4)

    Thomas Paine, the great defender of freedom, independence, and rational common sense during America’s turbulent revolutionary period, was a devout believer in astrology. In his book The Age of Reason, he wrote: “it is an inconsistency scarcely possible to be credited, that anything should exist – under the name of religion – that holds it to be irreligious to study and contemplate the structure of the Universe that God has made.”

    In ancient Egypt, the High Priest of Heliopolis, “The City of The Sun,” was from time immemorial honored with the title “Astrologer-in-Chief .” This post was held by – among others – Potipherah, the father-in-law of Joseph, the son of Jacob (Gen. 41:45).

    "Thus sayeth 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."

    "Philosophy is written in this grand book - I mean the Universe - which stands open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are circles, triangles, and other geometric figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it. Without these, one is wandering about in a dark labyrinth."

    (Galileo Galilei - II Saggiatore, 1623)

    Astrology and astronomy

    Astrology and astronomy are historically one and the same discipline (Latin: astrologia), and were only gradually recognized as separate in western 17th century philosophy (the "Age of Reason").
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrology_and_astronomy
    Since the 18th century they have come to be regarded as completely separate disciplines. Astronomy, the study of objects and phenomena beyond the Earth's atmosphere, is accepted as a science and is a widely studied academic discipline. Astrology, which uses the apparent positions of celestial objects as the basis for psychology, prediction of future events, and other esoteric knowledge, is not widely regarded as science and is typically defined as a form of divination.

    I think the passage you are referring to, In fact I am sure the passage you are referring to in reference to "He telleth the number of the stars, he calleth them all by their names" This is talking about the constellations of the stars, many stars that make up a constellation, they have names such as the cluster of stars that make up the constellation. Prime example Aries, Taurus, Gemini and so forth through out the entire zodiac which consist of 12 signs. The names of the signs made up by clusters of stars is what the passage is referring to.
