Signs of the Times — The Bible and Astrology | David Rives

By | August 11, 2019

The practice of astrology involves using stars,
planets, and constellations for signs. According to the Biblical record, the sun, moon and
stars were to be for signs, seasons, days and years. So, does this make astrology Biblically
acceptable? Actually, quite the contrary. One major difference
between scriptural signs and the pagan practices of astrology is found in Jeremiah. We read
that the heathen are dismayed at the signs of heaven. In astrology, it is claimed that
you should expect bad things to happen when the stars are not aligned correctly. The Lord commands us not to be terrified of
celestial patterns: “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.” Jeremiah 10:2 After the idolatrous building of the golden
calf at Mt. Sinai, Acts 7 states: “Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host
of heaven…” Acts 7:42 In the book of Romans we read of those “Who
changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator…”
Today, we find not only astrologers, but many atheistic scientists who seem to worship the
creation more than the Creator of the Universe. What’s your sign? My sign would read: Fearfully
and wonderfully made, child of the living God” I’m David Rives,
Truly, the Heavens Declare the Glory
of God.
