The Star of the universe is the Lord Jesus Christ.

They have been traveling for 36 years at 39,000 miles per hour and they are just reaching the end of our little part of the universe.

ECC 3:11 God has planted the longing for eternity [the story of salvation] in man.

There is a Christ shaped void and therefore only Christ can fill it.

The number 12 represents God’s perfect and ultimate authority.

The background for the Star Gospel is the fall of Satan, his sentence to the Lake of Fire, and Satan’s appeal of the sentence.

Thus God granted him an appeal trial. Witnesses were needed for the trial, and man was created to resolve the pre-historic angelic conflict.
When man fell, the Lord promised a Savior to redeem fallen mankind to pay for the sins of the world.

DEU 4:19, And when you look up into the sky and see the sun, moon, and stars-all the forces of heaven—don’t be seduced into worshiping them. The LORD your God gave them to all the peoples of the earth.

GEN 3:8, They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.

BEHOLD THE NAIL, BEHOLD THE HAND!”

BEHOLD THE NAILED HAND

3:9 Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” And Adam said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.

The Lord went looking for the man, just as it has been ever since, the Lord is still calling out to those who are hiding from Him.

 

Operation blame game begins and this is something man would master for sure.

GEN 3:15, The Lord God said to the to the serpent, I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed;

He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.

Thinking that man can become godlike, where man can solve man’s problem without God…when man’s problem is being without God.

Here is an attempt to solve a problem by something man could do [legalism] rather than by something that God does [grace].

 

 

There is a very definite correlation between sin and the resulting fear.

Little did Satan realize that the very plan for the redemption of man was right above him, written in the stars.

“I will put enmity [the state of being an enemy] between you [Satan] and the woman and between your seed and her seed.”

ROM 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.

“He [the Lord Jesus Christ] shall bruise your head. and you [Satan] shall bruise [crush] His heel.”


The place where you truly stop being afraid is not being fearless regarding the details of life…but it is when you are no longer afraid of death.

Adam called his wife Eve, which means giver of life.

So the tree of life became a tree of death (eternal life without God)
and man would now believe upon a yet to come tree of death (the Cross) to give them eternal life.

Virgo – the virgin – the story of the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.

Libra – the scales – the judgment of Jesus Christ on the Cross to pay for the sins of the world and satisfy the Justice of God.

One star means
“the price which is deficient.” it points to the price which man might attempt to pay for redemption. The other means “the price which covers.”

Scorpius – the scorpion – Satan

Capricornus.

Aquarius – the water man – showers of blessing from Heaven from the Good news of salvation through faith in Christ. Water represents the word of God.

Pisces – the two fish – pointing in opposite directions symbolizing a priest interceding for the believer, a foreshadow of Jesus Christ.

Aries – the ram – Christ as the sacrifice for sin and then the Conqueror.

Taurus – the bull – The Redeemer who will return.

Gemini – the twins – this represents the dual nature of Christ in His Hypostatic-union.

Cancer – the crab – eternal security.

Leo – the lion – The Lord Jesus Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah who returns to rule in the Millennium and cast the devil into the Lake of Fire.

PSA 147:4, He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them.

GEN 1:14, “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years”.

Adam’s name means man.

Seth, means he who is appointed.
For God has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.”

Enosh, means mortal, frail, or in a miserable state

Kenan, which means sorrow.

Mahalalel, EL means God, so his name means the
Blessed God is with us.

Jared means shall come down or shall arrive from above.

Enoch, which means teaching or preaching.

Methuselah which means his death shall bring about.

Lamech means those who are despairing.

Noah means to bring relief or to comfort.

It is truly a love story, an epic love story, written in blood on a wooden cross which was erected in Judea more than 2,000 years ago.

1 Pe 2:24, and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the Cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.

Why are you where you are,

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
Day to day they pour forth speech, And night to night it reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard.
