‘THE DEVIL HIJACKED IT’
It is much easier for the devil to corrupt what God has created than for him to create on his own. The devil or satan, is our adversary, just like in a court case there is the defense, which is Yeshua and then there is the prosecutor which is Lucifer. Lucifer is doing everything he can to build a case against us and his tactic is to show how easy we are manipulated and corrupted. It all started in the Garden of Eden when God created man in His image and the enemy tarnished Eve’s mind to go against what God had commanded and initially built his first case against God’s creation that we are not worthy to be Holy. We also see this corruption take place in Genesis when the sons of God took the daughters of men as wives and multiplied, (Genesis 6); the seed of God had been tainted and God demands us to be perfect for He is perfect, (Matthew 5:48). Then again in Numbers 21 when God ordered Moses to raise the serpent on the staff and when the people looked upon it they were healed, but the Israelites were weak and began to idolize the serpent on the staff and forgot that it was God himself that had the power to heal. Today there are many things that have become pagan but were not originally pagan; for example the ‘Zodiak’ and the ‘Cross’. The devil has read the bible, he knows God’s word better than anyone else and he knows that his time is short! (Revelation 12)
The zodiac today is made popular by pagans and witches. The zodiac is primarily used for understanding our personalities as well as the stars are often used by witches and pagans to tell the future. This of course is a sin, and goes directly against God, Deuteronomy 18:10-12, “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.” We see the first example of man trying to observe the heavens in the story of the tower of babel, (Genesis 11). Man tried to build a tower so tall that they could observe the stars nightly to try to tell their future. All throughout history kings, such as Herod, have had observatories that were used to be able to tell their ultimate destiny. The enemy knows that God has used the moon and stars for signs and seasons, (Genesis 1:14). And God’s word is clear that the enemy will try to change the times and the seasons, (Daniel 7:25). The word ‘seasons’ is the Hebrew word ‘moedim’ which refers to God’s feast days that are commanded for us to keep in Leviticus 23. The moedim are always accompanied with some sort of sign in the heavens, such as Rosh Hashanah is accompanied with a new moon. Even when Yeshua is born there is a star that is present that aids as a sign for man to know of his coming, this is apparent in the scripture, (Matthew 2:2). The enemy is scrambling to corrupt what God has put in the heavens for us, in my opinion the heavens is God’s billboard for us, but be careful to not twist your own thinking about this. The zodiac was not at first the ‘zodiac’, it was at first the Hebrew Mazzeroth. We see the first mention of the Mazzeroth in, Job 38:31-32. The Hebrew Mazzeroth has much importance to a believer, for Psalms 19:1-5 say, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” A few things in these verses intrigue me, first it is interesting that in science everyone speaks the same language and the Mazzeroth symbols have speech that all people are aware of despite what language you speak, and second the heavens declare the glory of God. We must ask ourselves, what is the glory of God? Is it His creation? I do not believe the glory of God is His creation, the Bible only talks about creation for a very small amount of time, however, the bulk of the Bible talks about God and His plan for redeeming us. I will also use the argument that it did not take much effort on God’s part to create everything, Psalms 33:6, “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” God simply spoke it and the heavens were made, however, it cost God His only son Yeshua to be killed for the redemption of His creation. So, if the heavens declare God’s glory, how do they do this? Well it is a story in the sky for all man to see, beginning with Virgo, the virgin birth, to Scorpio the serpent being destroyed by none other than Leo, the lion of Judah. God also has 12 tribes, which all were given their own signs and ‘coincidently’ there are 12 Mazzeroth signs that coincide with each:
We also see in Ancient Israel the Israelites camped around the temple under 4 major signs, Lion to the east, Ox to the West, Eagle to the North and Man to the South. These four signs also make up a strange four headed creature that we see in the visions of Ezekiel 1 and 10, Isaiah 6 and Revelation 4-5. This leads me to what I have to say about the ‘cross’; if you look at the number of people that camped around the Temple in Numbers 2 you will find that if you were to hover above the camp it would make the image of the cross.
We also see the cross as the ancient Hebrew pictograph letter of tau. In Hebrew every letter has a use in three ways; a letter, a number and a meaning. For instance, ‘aleph’ means ‘strength’ and ‘bet’ means ‘house’, when you combine the two letters they make the word for father which ultimately means ‘leader of the house’. Tau is not only a letter but it is its own word too; and according to the Strongs dictionary the word tau #8420 means: mark, sign, covenant or seal. So in essence treasure is found where x marks the spot. Romans 10:4, “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.” The word end in that verse is the Hebrew word ‘telos’, which can actually be translated as ‘goal’, so in essence Jesus is the ‘goal of the law’ and it is interesting to note that the letter ‘tau’ is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet making it the goal of the word of God for man to arrive at the cross, pointing ultimately to God’s son Yeshua sacrificing Himself so that we can live. Jesus could have stepped off that cross at any moment but it was His love for you and me that kept Him up there.
John 3:14, “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.” We see this happening all over again, man has fallen and has worshiped and idolized the cross instead of worshiping the one who actually redeems us. Do not fall trap in idolizing or worshiping images, rather worship the one who created you and redeemed you, Yeshua Hamashiach!
I pray that anything I have written that is not the will of God that it falls dead at your sight and does not bear bad fruit.
